DEVELOPING: An Army Black Hawk helicopter carrying five crew members crashed in the ocean late Tuesday two miles off the coast of Hawaii, sparking a massive response from the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard said it received a call around 10:08 p.m. from personnel at Wheeler Army Airfield saying the base lost communications with one of its UH-60 Black Hawk aircrews.Two Black Hawk aircrews were reportedly conducting training exercises between Kaena Point and Dillingham Airfield around the time communications were lost, according to the Coast Guard. Officials spotted a debris field around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday near Kaena Point off the island of Oahu. Responders are searching for five missing crew members, using an HC-130 Hercules airplane, several Coast Guard boats and a shore patrol with the Honolulu Fire Department. It’s not clear what may have caused the crash, but the Coast Guard said the weather on scene currently has 11 mph winds and 2 foot seas.
Capt. Brett DeVries said he had to think fast when a “donut of gas” enveloped his gun and aircraft over Michigan’s Grayling Air Gunnery Range — forcing him to make a dramatic belly-landing.The 30 mm gun of his A-10 jet misfired just as the entire canopy of the aircraft blew off last month, the Air Force Times reported Tuesday.DeVries, a pilot with the 107th Fighter Squadron of the Michigan Air National Guard, was exposed to winds approaching 350 miles per hour, officials said. The Air Force captain lowered the seat as far as it could go to offer protection from the air around him. The blown canopy had damaged the bottom of the aircraft too.After assessing the damage, DeVries intended to belly-land the plane — with no wheels or canopy.As DeVries and his wingman made the 25-minute flight from explosion to runway, they “talked through every possibility and how he was going to land it.”DeVries came in shallow and slow, landed centerline and got out of the badly damaged jet on his own, according to Air Force Times.“In this case, the training took over and it is what made the difference,” he said.
Trump has already pledged to keep Americans safe by banning travel from countries with radical Islamic terror.Now another major country, Norway, is banning Muslim veils in schools, as they make it hard to educate young women (read more below).Do you think Trump should put an end to this practice? Should America allow Muslims to wear hijabs and niqabs?Vote in our national poll below, learn more about what Norway is doing to stop it in their country, and let us know your opinion in the comments!
Trump has already pledged to keep Americans safe by banning travel from countries with radical Islamic terror.The Norwegian government on Monday proposed a bill to ban the full-face Muslim veil in all schools, from nurseries to universities, saying it hinders communication between students and teachers.Norway’s ruling coalition of conservative and anti-immigration rightwing parties had promised the ban last year, targeting the full-face veil called the niqab as well as burqas, balaclavas and masks.“We do not want clothes covering the face in nurseries, schools and universities,” Minister of Education and Research Torbjorn Roe Isaksen said in a statement.“These clothes prevent good communication, which is important for students to receive a good education,” he added.For many, the full covering of a woman says a lot about what a religion thinks of their women. Are they protecting women, or are they mistreating and degrading women by covering up their faces? Let us know what you think below!
For months now, the Lefts have been criticizing President Trump’s immigration policies.Fortunately however, not all Americans have been brainwashed by the liberal ideology.And while many claim to be against President Trump’s policy, a new poll claims otherwise.That’s right. According to our source Conservative Report, the new Rasmussen poll shows that 62 percent of the American voters have agreed with President Trump’s previously suggested policy, which would restrict new U.S. immigrants from receiving welfare for at least five years withing entering the United States.The majority of the pro-voters, are actually middle-class Americans earning from 30 thousand to 50 thousand dollars, with 72% in favor. Even certain citizens who consider themselves as “moderates,” have shown support with a 61 percent rate.The Rasmussen poll shows that U.S. citizens are willing to accept immigrants, if in fact the immigrants are ready to work without any benefits or handouts. The poll also answered some questions regarding illegal immigration, you can check it out in the video down below.
An astonishing 76 percent of the voters stood on the idea that those who seek welfare should first prove they are an American citizen and that they are here legally. On the other hand, only 17 percent of the voters opposed this idea.Another poll, which was conducted in Missouri revealed some very interesting information as well. It revealed that over 60 percent of likely voters claim that the U.S. illegal immigration needs to be minimized, which opposes the 1.5 million legal immigrant allotment each year.This proves that the majority of Americans do support President Trump’s policy. The mainstream media however, does not want you to know this. They have desperately attempted to portray his policies as radical, and idiotic. The Lefts on the other hand, claim that most of the American people do not agree with President Trump, which, you can obviously see that it is complete nonsense.
Listen up liberals because the fricking Governor of Guam just showed you how to put country first and be a patriot.Look Trump is not perfect. The Democrats and the establishment GOP have some valid points when they go after TrumpHe is learning on the job and don’t forget he ran against both parties.So he is an island in washington D.C. And island speaking for the silent majority.And that is something we have not had in decades.So even if he quit today he would go down as one of the greats, if not in history books in the hearts of Americans who finally have a voice in D.C.The positive effects of Trump shaking things up will be felt for generations and while the media will never give him credit for all he has done we will never forget it.That is just politics. But we have never, ever, tried to undermine our President in a time of crisis.Never. Ever. We even came together for Bush’s debacle in Iraq.But not this time. Not with Trump. Such is the left and GOP’s hatred for Trump.They will risk our security for their cheap, short-term political gain.We all know Trump has a different style that some find loathsome.But as you are undermining president Trump on North Korea with your hysteria ask yourself what is the definition of insanity.The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.Since Bill Clinton through George Bush and past Barack Obama we have done the same thing with regards to North Korea.It hasn’t worked. In fact our insane behavior has made it much worse.So what do we have to goddamn lose by trying Trump’s unorthodox way?He can’t fail any worse than Obama and Bush etc.So lay off the guy while he deals with this crisis. Don’t mount your protests over his words for he is negotiating.With a madman no less. America demands we come together in a time of military crisis and we always have.Don’t let this be the epitaph of the failed establishment. For it will not age well.And will haunt you forever.If you need a guide to how to be an American patriot who rallies not runs from the flag, I give you the Governor of fricking Guam.“I just got off the phone with Chief of Staff General John Kelly and with the President of the United States of America.They called me from the White House this morning and both assured me that the people of Guam are safe.In the President’s words they are behind us “1000 percent.”As the head of the Government of Guam, I appreciate their reassurances that my family, my friends, everyone on this island, are all safe.God Bless the people of Guam and God Bless the United States of America.
He is in the line of fire and is standing with America and Trump.Liberal and establishment cowards who do neither should be ashamed.
Japan just sent a strong message to the rest of the world. That despite the liberal media’s attempts to sow chaos all is well and good, and they support President Trump and America.And are ready to take action to prove it.Allies are important as President Trump knows and if you listen to the media all you will hear is that Trump makes our allies nervous.Not true, Trump has a great relationships around the world. And after North Korea threatened to attack Guam, Japan proved their loyalty.Japan’s new defense minister came out today and said he stands with Trump and added a special surprise for our Pacific Fleet that is in harm’s way should any missiles fly.He said that his country’s military could shoot down the missiles before they reach Guam.Japan said they will activate its Aegis destroyer missile defense system, Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told the National Diet, Japan’s parliament in response North Korea’s threat.According to Reuters, A spokesman for the Korean People’s Army (KPA) threatened,“The KPA Strategic Force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the U.S. major military bases on Guam including the Anderson Air Force Base.”Japan responded by reminding the world that any attack against Guam is a threat and attack against Japan and cited Japan’s mutual defense agreement with America as just one of the reasons they will stand with America.Japan sits about 620 miles to the east of North Korea and they have been watching the growing threat seriously.Most of the missiles North Korea tests land in the Sea of Japan which as they say is too close for comfort.Sadly, Obama and Bush and the rest of the establishment sat on their hands and did nothing so now Trump has to clean up the mess.It is a national disgrace what they have allowed to happen. Guam lies about 1,600 miles south of Japan and opting to include that island under its missile defense protection is a welcome change.Japan had previously said they would only shoot down North Korean missiles if they were aimed at Japan. But with this new defense policy the civilian government will officially allow Japan’s military to defend U.S. territories and other their allies in region in the event of North Korean missile attack.
In Utah, a lonely man walked into a Denny’s and approached the hostess with an unusual request. Feeling a little creeped, she showed him to his seat, where he ended up sitting by himself for hours. After he finally got up and walked out, the waitress saw what he had been doing the whole time, and it left the entire place in complete shock.Families filled the restaurant on a particularly busy day, and employees were hurrying trying to accommodate them. The strange man came in with a look in his eyes that caught the hostess immediately off guard. When he specifically asked, “Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?” the woman felt that it was very odd, but she sat him in Crystal’s section anyway. She watched him throughout his time there, hoping to figure out what his intentions were.The woman wrote in a Facebook post that this stranger sat at his table for two hours, just watching people. Multiple families had come and gone in his time, as this guy kept to himself, not ordering much or talking to anyone. Other patrons passed by his table as they left, not bothering to make eye contact with him. However, the woman who sat him eventually realized was going on. “Seven families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know,” the Denny’s worker wrote. Then she asked him,”Why did you do that?” and got a reply she wasn’t expecting, as a look came over his face when answering.
“Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine,” the generous man said, as the woman looked into his eyes and saw the pain. The hostess hurried off, saddened by this heartbroken man, who she didn’t want to see the tears welling up in her own eyes. She left so quickly that she didn’t even see what he had left for Crystal. By the time she did, the man she called an “angel” was long gone.Hoping to find the good Samaritan through her public post, the waitress shared something about his server she thought he should know. On top of having paid for several families to eat for free that day, as they spent valuable time with each other, he left a special gift for his waitress.On his personal tab that totaled just $21.34, the man tipped Crystal $1,500, which for this person meant more than he knew. Crystal was living in a shelter with her young son, desperate but feeling hopeless about how she was going to get them out. The night before the man came into the Denny’s, the struggling single mom had spent hours praying for a miracle. The next day, God sent an angel, with broken wings but a heart for what matters most.Because of this man, Crystal and her son get to move into a safe place they can call home. The moved woman concluded her post by saying, “You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here.”This man lost his entire family before realizing that it was all he ever needed and wanted in life, but he can’t get that time back. Instead of being bitter and jealous of others who have it, he blessed them, in hopes that they cherish it before it’s gone. One day, hopefully soon, this sweet person will find himself surrounded by people who he can call his family.Please share the story and tell us what you think by clicking one of the buttons below.

hen then-candidate Donald Trump spoke at rallies and discussed the importance of electing a conservative Supreme Court Justice could be nominated, the left was oblivious to how important that single issue was. Conservatives recognized that America was at risk if Democrats kept the power.Recently, the full panel of 9 justices came together for the first time to decide the fate of Islam being taught within our public school system. The decision shows just how close we came to disaster. The 5-4 ruling ultimately decided that Sharia Law or any ideology that contradicts basic human rights will not be taught in America’s public schools.This shows just how important the election of President Trump was and his decision to appoint Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.“The government certainly has no business being involved in religion, but this isn’t a government issue or a religious issue,” Gorsuch said in a statement. “This is about the judicial branch interpreting the laws as they apply to the teaching of religion. We should be teaching any religions in this country besides standard Judaeo-Christianity, as our founders wanted, and we certainly shouldn’t be filling the children with lies about Islam being a ‘religion of peace’ when they see the carnage on the news almost every day.”Gorsuch cast the tie-breaking vote that decided that only the “true historical account” of Islamic history would be taught in the classroom.
A woman’s shopping trip to a Georgia Publix store left her in a state of disbelief and tears, after what she caught a bagger doing toward the back of the store. Rather than reporting it to the store manager, she snapped a photo to share with everyone on social media.Jennifer Christopher Coker said that she was at the store in Tifton, when she heard a man ask the sales clerk a simple question. The young employee’s unusual response caught her off guard, but she didn’t think much else of it until she saw him again a few moments later when he was with the man he had just had an interaction with and who was clearly struggling.According to Fox 5, a wheelchair-bound elderly customer had come into the hectic store that day, when he stopped and asked the first clerk he saw if he was busy. The worker, only identified as Roger, was in the middle of his duties and turned to the disabled man, when suddenly his face changed. Another customer saw the clerk light up with a smile, responding politely with, “No sir, how can I help you?”The elderly gentleman explained that he was afraid of how long it would take him to gather the groceries on his own that night and wondered if the clerk could help him with his shopping. Without hesitation or a grimaced look on his face for being asked to deviate from his job description, Roger said that it would be his pleasure to help.
With the man’s shopping list in his hand, the kind employee patiently walked through each aisle, crossing each item off as he grabbed it, with not a care or single concern for the time it took. “There was no agitation in his tone for being interrupted. There was no rush to his walk to make the man feel like he was a burden,” Coker wrote, in her viral Facebook post last year, about the incident that’s now making the rounds again.The woman watched the two through tears of gratitude for this young man, who she’s never met before, but was pleased to see how well his parents raised him. “It is so rare to see such a young person have such respect for his elders. I had tears knowing that the elderly gentleman was probably happy to have someone help him AND to listen to him,” she wrote in astonishment and awe of this incredible young person. “You don’t get this kind of service at just any grocery store but Publix, specifically the Publix in Tifton, Ga.”In an era of entitlement, where teens and young adults have no respect for anyone else but themselves and will treat other people like dirt if they get in the way of what they want, Roger is a credit to his generation. It needs to be seen that it’s cool to be kind. We all need to slow down, look around, and appreciate people. We should help others when there is a need. Parents, who are present and do their job right, produce kids like Roger, and the world needs more of that.
Everyone loves tiny houses these days, and everyone hates that there are so many homeless people in our country who have served to defend it in the military. Now, a group in Missouri is taking this love/hate dynamic and putting together an incredible idea.An organization called Veterans Community project has built an entire village of tiny houses to provide homes for homeless veterans. This idea is both cost effective and empowering, and has potential to be replicated from coast to coast. Check out their story here.An idea whose time has come: using the tiny house revolution to actually solve a serious problem in our country. Military veterans make up a remarkably large segment of our nation’s homeless population. It is a national disgrace that men and women who have served to protect us in times of war and peace should be cast aside and left to fend for themselves with no support from society beyond occasional handouts.Veterans Community Project, or VCP, is a Missouri organization that is tackling this problem head on. VCP was founded by three veterans who saw the gaps in services that veterans needed to survive in civilian life after experiencing the trauma of combat followed by life on the streets.Working on a site of about four acres, they are constructing fifty tiny houses that will serve at least as many homeless vets. But the project does not end by putting a roof over their head. They will also be offering peer counseling and job training as a way to help reintegrate veterans back into the broader community.According to their website, VCP says “The goal would be to get veterans straight off the streets and hand them the keys to their full furnished tiny house (stocked with food), without the veteran having to go through the hassles of waiting for gas, electric, deposits, inspections, and voucher processes. We would then stabilize them to educate and support them on reintegrating into society all while treating and addressing their housing barriers as we move them into permanent housing.”Each house is 240 square feet and is being built by volunteers and with donations from business and private individuals.“We do this on weekends, holidays, evenings, whenever we can,” said Chris Lawrence, who is providing some of the lumber used to build the tiny homes through an organization she helps run called 2x4s For Home. “We’re just trying to help make a difference. Little by little, one board at a time.”They began construction in 2015 and plan to be complete and ready for residents by winter 2017.“Going from extreme isolation to extreme socialization can be very overwhelming and cause unwanted outcomes. We believe that handing the veteran the keys to their own home and letting them socialize at their own pace is key to a successful outcome.”It is commonly accepted on both sides of the political divide that the US Veteran’s Administration has been failing our heroes for decades. From warriors returning from Vietnam, to “Gulf War Syndrome”, right up through the current war on terror, VA hospitals, education programs, and housing services have been a poor payment for a debt that can never truly be repaid.Do you live near any settlements like this?
