He didn’t use Energizer batteries?

ISIS Fighter Killed By Drone Bomb He Was Operating

An ISIS fighter was killed by a drone with a bomb he was operating after it ran low on battery power and flew back to his location.

It would seem that this ISIS fighter forgot that drones require a certain amount of power to operate correctly and when the low battery indication gets triggered the device returns home and it seems he wiped himself right out of existence. IOW karma kicked in.

An ISIS terrorist blew himself up when the drone bomb he was operating ran low on battery — and flew back.

The idiotic killer was targeting allied forces after the Battle for Mosul in northern Iraq.

He had customised his weapon to carry plastic explosive and planned to detonate it by troops based in the city.

But his plan backfired because he had forgotten to sufficiently charge the device.

Civilian drones — as weaponised by ISIS — automatically ‘boomerang’ back to their point of launch when they start to run out of power.

They are programmed to return to prevent owners losing their machines.

UK troops — including the SAS — are training Iraqi soldiers as part of Operation Shader and are plagued by drone attacks.

A security source said: “We receive intelligence from locals about enemy activity and tactics. More

Twitter responds:

The drone was just a little smarter than the operator apparently.

Karma is such a wonderful thing, Don’t you think?

What goes around, comes around… and then blows you up.

I hate it when that happens.

NYC Protesters Disrupt Trump's Speech Honoring Veterans

President Trump was in New York City today to celebrate Veterans Day, but protesters attempted to interrupt his speech by chanting “lock him up.”

According to reporters on the ground, protesters in the surrounding areas chanted “lock him up” and “traitor” at the start of his speech.

Breitbart:

New York City protesters disrupted President Donald Trump’s speech to honor American veterans on Monday.

The president joined the annual Veterans Day parade kickoff event in Madison Square Park, the first president in history to do so.

Trump said he and First Lady Melania Trump came “to express the everlasting love and loyalty of 327 million Americans” for veterans.

As President Trump began his speech, protesters gathered in the side-streets shouted: “Lock him up!”

A building overlooking President Donald Trump’s appearance at New York City’s annual Veterans Day parade featured a sign spelling out “IMPEACH.”

Trump appeared at an event at Madison Square Park to kick off the Veterans Day parade by laying a wreath in honor of American veterans and by delivering a speech.

Reporters at the event quickly shared an image of the building on Twitter, where people put up big block letters in the windows. More

I am not shocked that the New York City liberals are both rude and ungrateful of the sacrifices made by our veterans.

The left never misses an opportunity to take classlessness to a new low level, and to show its disdain for our military.

As the child of a veteran, I find what the left does very offensive and deeply disrespectful too.

Trump Declassifies Photo Of Dog Involved In Killing ISIS Leader

President Trump declassified a photo of the heroic Belgian Malinois dog who was involved in the U.S. mission that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!” Trump tweeted today.

Give that soldier a huge steak. Well done buddy!

“Last night the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead. He was the founder and leader of ISIS. The most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world.”

The terrorist leader set off his own suicide vest after being chased by American dogs.

“He reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children. His body was mutilated by the blast,” the president said. “The tunnel had caved in on him in addition. But test results gave certain immediate and totally positive identification. It was him. The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, in total panic and dread, terrified of the American forces bearing down on him.”

This k9 is more courageous, more loyal and more patriotic than the modern-day democrat.

Master Sgt. Allen Dies 10 Years After Being Shot In Head While Looking For Bowe Bergdahl

Master Sgt. Mark Allen dies 10 years after being shot while searching for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

U.S. Veterans’ Network posted a tribute: MSG Mark Allen, a true American hero, has a visitation/funeral service open to the public. Thank you for your service brother. We’ll take it from here.

Prayers to the family of this American Hero! May God grant them peace.

Task and Purpose:

Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen has died 10 years after he was shot in the head while searching for deserter Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan.

Allen died on Saturday at the age of 46, according to funeral information posted online.

He had been unable to walk or speak since he was shot in the head in July 2009 by a sniper while he was looking for Bergdahl, who had walked off his base in Afghanistan and was held by the Taliban for five years, the Walton Tribune reported. More

This brave soldier is now at peace. Since Berghdal pleaded guilty to desertion, should he now be culpable for this hero’s death?

Obama negotiated with our enemy and then traded 5 of their terrorists for a deserter and the Democrats have the unmitigated treachery to try to impeach President Trump when Obama was the one to impeach.

The tensions in the Middle East are increasing very nearly to a point of no return as Iran ramps up the rhetoric, seemingly itching for a fight.  When words didn’t get the reaction for which they were hoping, they attacked – by proxy – Saudi Arabian oil, clearly trying to goad their adversaries into military action.

Liberals Push Fake News that Trump Admin. Says Soldier’s Children Born Overseas Are Not U.S. Citizens

Of course, this is a lie. The administration did no such thing.

Published

on

On Thursday, the left geared up its fake news machine to push the false claim that the Trump administration changed citizenship rules to say that children born overseas to U.S. soldiers  are not U.S. citizens.

Newsweek, for one, published a story insisting that a hashtag reading “#TrumpHatesMilitaryFamilies” was trending because the administration “stripped automatic citizenship from children of overseas troops.”

Of course, this is a lie. The administration did no such thing. But Newsweek went on…

The Trump administration has come under fire over a new policy change that will see some children of U.S. citizens working for the government that have been stationed abroad, including U.S. military personnel, stripped of their automatic right to American citizenship.

Presently, children born to parents stationed abroad are still legally deemed to be “residing in the United States,” which allows the parents to acquire automatic citizenship for their children.

But under the new policy, as of October 29, certain parents serving overseas in the U.S. armed forces and with other branches of the federal government will be required to formally apply for U.S. citizenship on their children’s behalf before their kids turn 18.

The new policy was released on August 28 and reads in part, “that USCIS no longer considers children who are living abroad with a parent who is a U.S. government employee or U.S. service member as ‘residing in the United States’ for purposes of acquiring citizenship under INA 320.”

Another section reads: “Effective October 29, 2019, children residing abroad with their U.S. citizen parents who are U.S. government employees or members of the U.S. armed forces stationed abroad are not considered to be residing in the United States for acquisition of citizenship. Similarly, leave taken in the United States while stationed abroad is not considered residing in the United States even if the person is staying in property he or she owns.”

Liberals interpreted that to mean that children of U.S. soldiers and diplomats (and other U.S. citizens) are no longer Americans.

But acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli explained that the new rule “does NOT impact birthright citizenship,” and added, “This policy update does not deny citizenship to the children of U.S. government employees or members of the military born abroad.”

“This policy aligns USCIS process with the Department of State’s procedure, that’s it,” Cuccinelli added.

Here is who the new rules affect:

  • Children who live with their U.S. parents abroad but who did not acquire citizenship at birth, including infants and children adopted overseas.
  • Children born of non-U.S. citizens who are adopted by U.S. citizens.
  • Those whose parents became U.S. citizens after the child’s birth.
  • U.S. citizens who do not meet the residence or physical presence rules needed to transmit birthright citizenship, such as a person born overseas with birthright citizenship who never lived in the United States.

In other words, this new policy ends the idea that just any child of just any U.S. citizen is an automatic American.

And the new rule also does not automatically preclude citizenship, either. Some parents in these situations have until the child’s 18th birthday to register them for citizenship.

WalletHub: The Best and WORST Places in America For Veterans — How Does Your City Rate?

WalletHub has come out with its new list of the best and WORST cities in American to live in for veterans. Is your city on the list?

Published

WalletHub has come out with its new list of the best and WORST cities in American to live in for veterans. Is your city on the list?

According to the 2018 WalletHub survey, the best city in the country for veterans is Austin, Texas. The Lone Star capital has now held the title of best city for two years in a row.

Rounding out the top five are Scottsdale, Arizona, then Colorado Springs, Colorado, Raleigh, North Carolina, and in fifth place, Gilbert, Arizona.

“According to the Veterans Association, there are over 19.6 million veterans currently living in the U.S. These veterans often face a host of challenges when re-entering civilian life,” WalletHub wrote about its list. “Despite Uncle Sam’s promises to provide health care as well as housing, employment and educational assistance upon their return from service, some cannot secure healthcare, jobs or shelter.”

WalletHub also noted that the worst of the ten worst cities in which to be a veteran is Detroit, Michigan.

The list of ten worst is as follows: Detroit, Michigan (100); Newark, New Jersey (99); Memphis, Tennessee (98); Fresno, California (97); Baltimore, Maryland (96); Toledo, Ohio (95); San Bernardino, California (94); Baton Rouge, Louisiana (93); Cleveland, Ohio (92), and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania(91).

As to Breitbart News reported:

WalletHub analysts determined their “best and worst” picks by comparing 100 of the nation’s largest cities using 18 metrics such as veteran friendliness, percentage of military skill-related jobs, affordable housing, and availability of VA health facilities which they catalogued into four main categories – employment, economy, quality of life, and health. The study also ranked how cities performed in numerous subgroups.

So, what were the best statistics?

Plano, Texas, experienced the lowest veteran unemployment rate at 2.4 percent, which was 6.5 times lower than Detroit, the city with the highest unemployment rate at 15.6 percent. Plano, a Dallas suburb, ranked as sixth overall best city for veterans, followed by Virginia Beach, Virginia (#7); Irvine, California (#8); and Florida’s Tampa (#9) and Orlando (#10).

Virginia Beach had the highest veteran population of 130.4, which was 15.3 times greater than Hialeah, Florida, with only 8.51 veterans, according to the study. Although Hialeah, a Miami suburb, rated poorly (#97) on its percentage of military skill-related jobs, it had the lowest percent of veterans living below the poverty line. Stockton, California, with only 1.91 percent of impoverished former military members, placed second to the South Florida city.

Is your city (or the big city near you) on the list?
