Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. ~Amen~
Every year I post this video. I am very proud to have called the little town of Ringgold, Georgia my home for many years. Every year we drive back down to spend the few minutes it takes to go through town, the main stretch and all the little side roads, and appreciate the flags, and honor the fallen.
May the blood cost of our freedom be increasingly appreciated and honored. And may America always be blessed with towns and people like this, who remember and honor our fallen because they value our freedom and know the cost.
Army Lt. Colonel Theresa Long discusses adverse reactions and the Nuremberg Code. Theresa Long is an Army Aerospace Medicine Specialist. Recently, Republican Sen. Ron Johnson invited the officer to make a statement in regards to what she considers a life-endangering COVID-19 vaccination program. That’s because the Lt. Col believes the adverse events associated with the COVID-19 vaccines are being underreported. Her opinion arises from a combination of medical education, training, and firsthand experience treating soldiers. The Lt. Col shared that this was her own opinion and not that of the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense (DoD), or any other relevant entity. Made as a “protected communication” under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act title 10 USC 1034, Long believes the COVID-19 vaccine program represents an unprecedented threat to U.S. military readiness—even more of a threat than COVID-19 itself. Could this be true?
Over 200,000 military personnel have rejected the COVID-19 vaccination, yet the U.S. military will commence repercussions leading to what Lt. Col Long declared is to the detriment of “morale and readiness” as they [the soldiers] will be “processed” out of the service. Now 200,000 soldiers is a lot. In fact, Lt. Col Long declared that not in any theater of war has the U.S. lost so many soldiers in just a few months.
Long declared, “Taking soldiers out of uniform has the same impact on readiness as losing them on the battlefield.” Offering her personal background and credentials, including a Master’s in Public Health, Lt. Col Long went on to remind everyone she spent the last three decades serving the country.
In front of superiors, Long, a critical thinker questioned the vaccine program early on. She stated, that significant amounts of time in the clinical trials process was skipped. With only 12 active soldiers lost to COVID, Long declared, “yet we are going to risk the health of the entire fighting force on a vaccine we only had two months of safety data on.” The response from her superiors: “Your damn right, Colonel. And you are going to get every soldier you can get to take the vaccine so I can get enough data points to determine if the vaccine is safe.”Subscribe to the Trialsitenews “COVID-19” ChannelNo spam – we promise
Of course, this raises the specter that enlisted military personnel were considered guinea pigs, as the safety was supposedly already established. TrialSites’ Sonia Elijah’s analysis of some of the disclosed Pfizer safety documents raises more questions than it answers about actual vaccine safety.
Long continues that service members are “national treasures,” as they have had to “stare down bullets,” and deal with exposure and damages from IEDs, bomb blasts, and “thankless and protracted wars.”
Now, those that opt to not receive the vaccine, for whatever reason, will be processed out of the military. Listen to the whistleblower’s story. She doesn’t seem to be a right-wing conspiratorial loon or fringe personality. A woman who grew up in a tough spot, who joined the military at 17, and because of the Armed Services has grown into an officer, living what she calls the “American Dream.”
Based on Long’s testimony, if true, the prospect of a mass research program—funded and directed by the U.S. government, comes into focus. That is, the COVID-19 response was orchestrated as a mass research endeavor that violated (and continues to do so from this point of view) long-standing ethical principles, including the Declaration of Helsinki.
TrialSite suggests a lot of fast, unfolding dynamics make this situation difficult to categorize as “one thing” bad or good in terms of the myriad of interests associated with pandemic response. We suspect both good and not good intentions become entangled in what becomes an even bigger, more convoluted mess due mostly to governing reactions, both under the Trump Administration and under the current Biden regime.
The pandemic response incompetence runs through both administrations as Trump withheld vital information early on (see Woodward interview), which led to a popular cult of viral denial which we continue to struggle with. Many people continue to walk around thinking this pandemic is over,” said Daniel O’Connor, founder of TrialSite. He continued, “In fact, this mass contagion continues on and will do so for the indefinite future, and people must protect themselves, and that can range from risk-based approaches to mass vaccination [e.g., elderly, those with co-morbidities, etc.], early treatment, and careful social practices.” O’Connor suggested, however, due to severe pandemic politicization and misinformation from all sides, including ongoing unprecedented censorship, “really ugly politics could evolve.” For example, basic concepts such as natural immunity were not rigorously studied by the U.S. government early on. There was seemingly a bias toward one “cure.” This impulse led to what amounted to a massive government-sponsored research program marketed as a sure thing.
Trump violated all sorts of norms, promoting various experimental approaches without any filter. Moreover, he can take accountability for the massive financial handout to pharma companies over the use of early-treatment options—that occurred under his watch—his accountability, in addition of course, to marketing these vaccines as “miracles” or gifts from “above.”
Rather, a sober, pragmatic, and honest government communication campaign should have commenced from the start. That is, that the vaccines would not cure COVID-19, such a volatile and ever-changing, and mutating pathogen, but rather would be an approach along with early treatment, antivirals, and other discoveries both in the real world of medicine and research. The public would have been far more trusting.
Many had great hopes for Biden to turn things around but in fact, his administration seems to throw gasoline on the collective fires. Biden, rather than building bridges, appears to be intent on burning the whole house down. None of these politicians should get a pass from the collective public.
Call to Action: Check out the video before it’s taken down. Video is now gone!
The Marine Corps reportedly discharged 103 Marines for not taking the mRNA vaccine. The highest refusal rate among the military branches, 10,000 Marines may now be discharged from the service. Around 5,700 Air Force and Space Force troops are not vaccinated. Over 6,200 Army troops have received temporary exemptions, but 3,900 remain unvaccinated. The Navy and National Guard pushed back their vaccine mandates until June. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that there is still an opportunity for troops “to do the right thing.”
The Defense Department admittedly has no idea what impact this will have on the US military at large. Kirby admitted that they are simply hoping the men and women who risk dying for their country will “do the right thing” and put their lives at risk once again. “I just don’t think we’re at a point now where we can draw a line and say, ‘OK, this is exactly what impact the separations are having on the force,’” Kirby said. “I just don’t know that we’re there yet because there are still opportunities here for people to do the right thing.”
Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma has attempted to stop the vaccine mandate for troops. “I believe we should suspend the vaccine mandate until the Department of Defense can answer basic questions about the impact the mandate will have on the total force,” Senator Inhofe of Oklahoma stated to US News. “I have yet to receive a response.” The mandate is a potential risk to national security. The military elites know what will happen if they lose tens of thousands of troops but they’re willing to put the country at risk to promote the larger agenda.

There is no such thing as “disinformation” or “misinformation”. There is only information you accept and information you do not accept.
You were not born with a requirement to believe everything you are told; rather, you were born with a brain that allows you to process the information you receive and make independent decisions.
Today, the Marine Corps Commandant blames ‘disinformation‘ for the fact that 12,500 marines are still refusing the vaccination and may end up departing military service if they do not comply. The essential ranks once again defined as non-essential over their healthy and free choice not to take an experimental vaccine for a virus that poses no significant threat.
VIA NBC – Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger cited “disinformation” as the reason there are thousands under his leadership who have not yet been vaccinated for the coronavirus.
[…] Each Marine must be vaccinated by Nov. 28, but troops are not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after the final dose of a two-shot vaccine or that same time period after a one-shot dose. This means the final shot will actually have to be given by this Sunday. “We have to be ready to go every day, all the time,” Berger explained. “We are the ready force. We have to be ready to go.”
If the vaccination rate of the Marines remains the same until the deadline, it would leave more than 12,500 Marines unvaccinated, according to Military.com. (read more)
In WWI, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, and Afghanistan, we asked our soldiers to sacrifice their lives to preserve our liberties.
Today, using this orchestrated pandemic, we ask them to sacrifice their liberties to save our lives. Get the Jab or you are fired!
They’re polar opposites.
Remember the Bonus Army
Then with 46% of the military objecting to the vaccines, they should walk out with their guns. Remember the Bonus Army when they used the military to kill WWI veterans asking for the promised pensions. Because of the abuse, they inflicted on our veterans when they thought they no longer needed them, they were forced to create the GI Bill to get them to fight in WWII. Why believe a government that never keeps its promises?
Just how will Biden’s pledge to defend Taiwan work when his demand to fire nearly 50% of the military and strip them of all pensions over an experimental vaccine? If I were China, I certainly would not take him seriously. You cannot threaten our military over a vaccine that Pfizer is paying huge lobbying fees so it will make $100 billion next year! Biden is not someone who has the credibility to order people to sacrifice their lives for his floundering political career.
Joe Biden’s son died of cancer in 2015, not in military combat. Yet he has serious mental problems or he is such a liar. But he keeps telling people his son Beau died in combat in Iraq.
COMMENT: I just need to vent. I use to be a Democrat but will never vote for one again. I am a Vet and under Obama, we were treated as second-rate citizens. Many would die waiting for a doctor. Under Trump, he turned the VA upside down. If they cannot see you, they have to pay for outside doctors to take care of you. He streamlined their paperwork which was outrageous. All these people do is hate Trump for everything. They even had to build the wall they called him a racist over that. Now the COVID is back. You are not allowed visitors anymore. Biden figures we should have died on the battlefield alone so why should we die with family now?
REPLY: I know your frustration. I have a Vietnam Vet friend here who goes to the VA hospital at St. Pete. You now line up in your car to get even the flu vaccine. They told him he had to quartine for four days before entering the hospital for a procedure. He said the same thing. Trump reversed the Obama VA crisis, and now the Democrats are disrespecting Vets all over again. Interestingly, Hitler began exterminating WWI Vets because they were deemed “useless” under the same philosophy — So what have you done for me lately?
Trump vowed to do more for the veterans when the Democrats cut everything they could in the VA and military for social programs. The Veterans Health Administration scandal of 2014 was a reported pattern of negligence in the treatment of the United States military veterans. Obama was confronted by reports of a total meltdown of the VA by members of his own party. Even the New York Times, back then, said Obama “gave in to the pressure and performed the sort of ritual Washington sacrifice…”
PRESIDENT TRUMP – “On this Memorial Day, we remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms. The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history. On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail. They made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace. It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny.
We owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting.
America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth. God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines. We honor them today, forever, and always.” (LINK)
Today we honor and give thanks for all Americans who died while serving and protecting Americans, wherever far away and however brutal that task became. We celebrate the lives and sacrifice of our fallen.
I hope that we Americans are indeed offering up our prayers for those who have served and their families. I hope we remember to thank God today that we have such patriots who gave up their lives because they believed that America is our home, our land, the heart of who and what we are as not only a nation among others, but a key part of our very identity.
I like to post this video each year. It’s a fitting tribute to what we have to celebrate and observe today.
Appreciation and respect for our military service-members are at the cornerstone of the Treehouse. Every day for over ten years we begin our daily prayers with our fallen national heroes in mind. Through the years we have also lost veteran members who are part of the Treehouse family. We have cried together, held time together and sometimes just quietly sat beside each-other to eliminate the loneliness…. No words needed.
However, we would also like the opportunity to share our appreciation this special weekend; and we want our veteran Treepers to know just how much they are valued and cherished.
Before we enter a day of solemn thoughtfulness and reflection, I would like to ask all military Treepers to stand and be recognized so that we may say “Thank You” this Memorial Day. If you, or a member of your family past or present, is a member of the veteran community, or if you have lost someone close who was a veteran, please share a brief hello.
To the extent you are comfortable, please stand and be recognized in the comments section so that we may honor you and your family.
Five days ago an American was kidnapped in Niger and taken to the neighboring country of Nigeria. Today U.S. special forces carried out a daring operation and successfully rescued him. Philip Walton, 27, was recovered by SEAL Team Six.
According to the Pentagon, the mission was undertaken by the elite commandos as part of a rescue operation before his abductors could get far after taking him captive in Niger on Oct. 26.
(Pentagon) Statement by Jonathan Hoffman, Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs:
“U.S. forces conducted a hostage rescue operation during the early hours of 31 October in Northern Nigeria to recover an American citizen held hostage by a group of armed men. This American citizen is safe and is now in the care of the U.S. Department of State. No U.S military personnel were injured during the operation.
We appreciate the support of our international partners in conducting this operation.
The United States will continue to protect our people and our interests anywhere in the world.” (link)
We killed “all but one“… We can only imagine what keeping that one alive was for.
According to ABC News: “[…] Then the elite SEAL Team Six carried out a “precision” hostage rescue mission and killed all but one of the seven captors, according to officials with direct knowledge about the operation.”
“They were all dead before they knew what happened,” another counterterrorism source with knowledge told ABC News.”
White House – Statement From the President On Last Night’s Hostage Rescue
Last night, at my direction, the United States military conducted a successful operation to rescue an American hostage in Nigeria, kidnapped just 96 hours earlier. United States Special Forces executed a daring nighttime operation to rescue their fellow American with exceptional skill, precision, and bravery.
No United States Service Members were harmed. The former hostage is currently in good health and has been reunited with his family.
Securing the freedom of Americans held in captivity abroad has been a top national security priority of my Administration. Since the beginning of my Administration, we have rescued over 55 hostages and detainees in more than 24 countries. Today’s operation should serve as a stark warning to terrorists and criminal thugs who mistakenly believe they can kidnap Americans with impunity. ###
