Rep. Duncan Hunter: Obama admin giving middle finger to military families

Rep. Duncan Hunter, a former marine, is outraged and disgusted at the fact that this administration is withholding death benefits to the families of slain military. He said that Congress saw this coming and made sure that when they passed the Pay Our Military Act that this very thing was covered. So despite the denial by the DoD that this wasn’t covered, Hunter says it absolutely is covered and the DoD is trying to cover their butt for a bone-headed mistake they’ve made.

Hunter added that there is no better person than the one who gives their life for this country and they and their families should be treated with the utmost respect.

A soldier makes the supreme sacrifice, his life, to his country and falls in battle. His family now mourns for their loss. Nothing can relieve the grief, pain, and suffering they have to now bear. You can’t imagine this no matter how hard you try. To have some dumb ass DOD, Pentagon, and WH admin say the want pay “death gratuities” and plays politics needs to be kick out of these agencies on their ass. Better yet, send their ass to the front lines and see how their family would feel. Our senate confirmed Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense. Hagel could with the stroke of a pen could find funds or find away to take care of the fallen soldiers, but he want. Hagel you are an ASS. I hold my senators at fault as well. I told my senators to vote “NO” on the Hagel conformation, yet they… Read more »

Obama’s behavior is typical for him and his “friends.” [He has no friends, only yes people: sad.] But I’m more interested in Ms Kelly. Before her little hiatus, she tended to tilt left quite often. If she’s really awake or waking, and free or pulling free of whatever makes liberals so incredibly stupid, she’ll do Fox a world of good. Hope springs.

Obama is getting more vicious and retaliatory every day. If his approval ratings don’t tank from the way he treats the military DEAD and their families, in addition to the veterans, it says a lot for the Democrat voters who reap the benefits of their freedom on the backs of dead Americans with no thanks whatsoever.

Boehner and Congress BETTER react very harshly to this!! Scream over the networks that Congress just passed a bill to pay for this and Obama signed it, yet Obama’s giving them the middle finger anyway. Maybe the bill doesn’t make it manditory to pay them and just allows the President to legally pay them, but that still means Obama had a CHOICE!

The Obama administration has been giving the finger to all American taxpayers, to families, to all serious Christians and Jews, to the future of America as well as to our Military.
The middle finger is the symbol of the vulgar, corrupt, leftist Obama administration.

Pay close attention this weekend folks, as a couple million Vets, Truckers, and Bikers converge peacefully on DC to express their displeasure about what their country is becoming.

Football, schmootball! This rally is what I will be watching.

Our Patriots are rising up…the proverbial camel’s back has been broken by way too many straws. Enough is clearlyy enough.

Watch, in wide-eyed wonder, at your fellow countrymen and women. We’ll be needing a stronger word than ‘awesome’. Can you feel it? Hot damn, this is going to make us so proud!

WOW!! I can’t wait. Obama might have the MSM covering his butt and blaming the Republicans, but he’s not fooling the veterans.

Q: Where is John McCain, Lindsay Graham? Why are they not stepping forward and denouncing such an atrocious act of incompetence? They can make pronouncements about another member of their party, but when it comes to relevant issues regarding serious problems the crickets are very loud. Despicable is not a strong enough term and I will not dishonor those who have fallen and Right Scoop by using vulgar epithets to describe how reprehensible these people are toward our service men and women.

Your comment reminded me… Shortly after he was first elected President, b.o. showed up at a Big Pow Wow being held by Native American Indians. Upon the conclusion of his comments to those gathered, the Chiefs gave b.o. the Indian name “Walking Eagle”. b.o. graciously accepted his new callsign and left the festivities. A reporter stayed behind to witness some of the events on the schedule, and got a chance to speak with one of the Chiefs. He asked the Chief how the name given came about? The Chief`s answer: “That One is so full of “–it”, he cannot fly.” Guess the Indians are maybe Ahead of the Curve…Geronimo`s Heart Soars…Mine TOO

Walking Eagle! Ha! A great insult. But if native Americans are anything like native Canadians, these are some of the most corrupt radical self centered and pandered-to political elites in the country. In Canada, we have a two tiered legal systems here (at least in Ontario) with Indians lawlessly occupying land, setting up businesses on stolen land while not conforming to any safety or health codes. They have taken over land and homes not belonging to them all under the nose of a weak and compromised police (Ontario Provincial Police – OPP) who stand by and do nothing. The police are not even allowed to go on some reserves… similar to Muslim no-go areas in France. The police meanwhile arrest and harass those honest and hard working Canadians trying to stand up to the Indians. On top of all this, the rank and file Indian band member cowers in fear… Read more »

another site that is a charitable, tax exempt organization you might like to consider, if you are able to help financially or with your time & efforts, is http://www.75thraf.org/mission . check out the whole site, click on ‘mission’ to see what they do with donations.

How can the commander-in-chief of the most powerful military in the world allow this to happen? Because the commander-in-chief hates the military and is doing everything possible to weaken, to destroy it, to undermine them in every single turn.
