Fundraising Page Set Up For Wounded Warrior Who Lost Home To Fire

February 20, 2014 at 2:13 pm




Sadly enough as the 1st female double amputee from the Afghan war and the lone survivor of the Humvee that was hit by an IED back in 2006 wounded veteran Cpl. Sue Downes is no stranger to tragedy but this latest blow is being softened by caring individuals who have stepped up to help her and her children in their time of need.

TAZEWELL (WATE) – A Valentine’s Day fire destroyed the home of a wounded veteran and now the community is stepping in to help her rebuild.

The flames broke out at Cpl. Sue Downes’ home in Tazewell late Friday evening.

“That’s my life up there, that’s 15 years go my life in that home, my kids’ memories, their everything, our everything,” said the 33 year-old veteran.

Cpl. Downes lost both her legs in Afghanistan in 2006 and now she and her family have lost almost everything.

When she came home to see her home in flames Friday night, her thoughts quickly turned to her four legged family.

“Just let me see my dogs, just let me see my dogs are out,” she recalled pleading to firefighters.

Her retired service dog Lila survived, along with another pup Max survived, but her daughter’s Chihuahua perished in the fire.

Now the community is coming together to help her find a new home, a new home that would be better suited for her needs.

“Of course having a home that’s more accessible would be amazing,:” said Cpl. Downes.

The Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient lost both her legs below the knee the Humvee she was riding in was struck by an IED. She was the nation’s first female double leg amputee.

The nation supported her then and today they’re showing their support once more.

In just 48 hours people have donated more than $10,000 dollars to the fundraising page.

“It’s hard to keep saying thank you, that’s all I know what to say is thank you thank you, I’m so grateful,” she said. [...]

 

LULZ! DNC Slashing Obama San Fran Fundraiser Ticket Prices 50%

Obama back in San Francisco by unpopular demand

(Washington Examiner) –The Democratic National Committee is reducing ticket prices for a high-dollar fundraiser in San Francisco next week that features President Obama, according to an email sent to donors Monday.

Obama is set to appear at a luncheon at the SFJAZZ Center on Nov. 25 to benefit the DNC, but whether it’s a sign of donor fatigue or a general lack of interest, tickets have not been selling as expected.

“An exciting new update I would love to mention is that we have reduced the price for the general admission luncheon tickets to $500/person,” Shefali Razdan Duggal, a member of the DNC’s national finance committee, wrote in the email. “In addition, all current $1000 ticket holders will be upgraded to VIP (this includes premium seating near the stage and Presidential rope line access).”

Originally, entry-level tickets for the event started at $1,000, so the DNC is offering what amounts to a 50 percent discount.

And a not so little thing called –momentum. There may be hope for the UK yet…

H/T Baron Bodissey at Gates Of Vienna:

Three people were arrested on their way to the demo; there is no news so far on any arrests at the demo itself.

Great news on the turnout:

English Defence League — London Division

Tommy has a BBC Camera Crew with him today and the Police have confirmed to them that numbers are now 7,000. A big well done to everyone.

Yes, well done!
BTW The (EDL) English Defence League on Facebook reported 7 hours ago that they have gained 98,000 new likes.

Impressive.

Update: EDL leader Tommy Robinson has started a fund raising campaign for ‘Help For Heroes’. As you may know Lee Rigby the soldier who was butchered in London was wearing a ‘Help For Heroes’ t-shirt at the time.

Union Thugs Demolish Lansing,Michigan Hot Dog Vendor Clint Tarver’s Equipment [Photo] Update: “N*gger, Uncle Tom” –Slurs Confirmed

December 12, 2012 at 9:12 am

“Civil war

I support Clint:

Early today[December 11, 2012], Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.

Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.

Beyond the Cart: The Story of Clint Tarver:

Regardless of your position on current legislation, rebuilding Clint’s Hot Dogs is something we can all support. Please give what you can to get this deserving businessman back out there!

If you would like to help Clint get back on his feet ==>DONATE HERE

Update: Racist, violent, destructive monsters.

Update 2: The plot thickens!

The woman (Lorilea Susanne) who set up the fundraising page for Clint has spoken to his wife. Apparently Clint was hired to provide catering for the Americans For Prosperity tent which was also destroyed by union thugs.

*UPDATE* 11:40am – I have spoken with Linda Lee, Clint’s wife. She says he is absolutely overwhelmed with our support, even more so than by the events of yesterday. I would like to clarify the events, however. Clint hired as a caterer for the AFP tent which was torn down. He was much more concerned about the others, and particularly helped to get the women out of the tent. It was when he returned to gather his equipment that the taunts and racial slurs began. He says the working people did not respect the working man. He was not there to be political; he was just there to serve. This is the Clint we know and love. Please, let’s respect him and leave our political opinions out of this. This is about our support for Clint.

Emphasis hers.

Update 3:

Slate:

Romney’s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club.

Before he spoke, Republicans heard “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. “Mitt’s a good, Christian man like I am,” explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.

Update 4: AFP Michigan organizer Annie Patnaude discusses the attack. She was onsite and witnessed the incident.

Update 5:  Dana Loesch speaks with Clint.

Update 6: $23,771 raised so far. God Bless you one and all.

Update 7:  Lee Stranahan’s in person interview with Clint The Hot Dog Guy. Topic:  The union mob racist attack and the the attack on the AFP tent in Lansing. At first Clint was caught in the crossfire then the vicious union mob turned their racist anger towards him. He was working for the enemy –Americans For Prosperity. Thus deserving of their wrath.

Stacy McCain:

Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their “Tea Party is racist” meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes — who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies — decide they’ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only “crime” is serving hot dogs?

Cha-Ching! RNC’s July Fundraising Breaks Record –3rd Straight Month Romney-GOP Outraised Obama-DNC

August 17, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Eat our dust Obama.

(CNN) – The Republican National Committee said Friday it raised $37.7 million in July, making last month the best July in the party committee’s history.

At the end of July, the RNC said it had $88.7 million cash on hand. They said July’s numbers brought their yearly total to $158 million.

……

Mitt Romney, along with the RNC and several state parties, raised $101.3 million in July, and ended the month with $185.9 million cash on hand. That was the third straight month the Republican effort outraised President Barack Obama and the Democrats, who brought in $75 million in July.

Obama was a fundraising heavy hitter in 2008, as you can see by this chart. He raised a record-breaking $745 million throughout his presidential campaign.

But this time ’round, Obama’s smarmy charm alone is not enough to compete. He is used goods. Buyers remorse is in the air.

BTW Obama has brazenly lied about being “outspent” in 2008.

His back is up against the wall, and he knows it.

Ha.

Democrat High Anxiety! “Disturbing Report” of “Overflow Romney-Ryan Crowds”

August 14, 2012 at 11:32 am

Bwahahahahahahahaha ha!

JWF received this email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Jammie –
I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday’s Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.

There’s no spinning that number. It’s a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.

And that’s not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney’s campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base.

We’ve got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters — starting right now.

Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama’s agenda >>

Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: “I love him…He’s going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board…”

We can’t let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:

August 11, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Energized!!!

Ouch:

For the third month in a row, Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney’s campaign outraised the re-election effort of President Barack Obama, scooping up $101.3 million, while the president pulled in more than $75 million .

That would be the months of May, June and July. Obama runs his campaign like he runs the country, spend, spend, spend –with failed results.

The fund-raising totals, announced by the campaigns Monday morning, underscore an ominous trend for Obama, who has been burning through cash in his effort to hold on to the White House.

At the end of last month, Obama’s campaign sent out increasingly urgent e-mail missives asking supporters to contribute.

Read: Desperate.

The Romney campaign, the RNC and their affiliated fund-raising committees ended the month with nearly $186 million on hand.

The Obama campaign declined to release its cash on hand figures, which will be made public when campaign finance reports are filed to the Federal Election Commission on Aug. 20.

Whatcha afraid of O? Where did Mr. BIG $$$$ Candidate 2008 go? Psst… America has had the unfortunate opportunity to see you in action.

I can see November from my house.

Sarah Silverman The Wannabe $100 Million Obama Ho **NSFW**

August 5, 2012 at 11:18 am

Twisted sister Sarah selling body and soul in the name of O.

Times of Israel:

“Jewess” comedienne Sarah Silverman published a [not safe for work] video Monday on scissorsheldon.com propositioning the billionaire casino tycoon and fellow member of the tribe.

In exchange for a $100 million donation to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, instead of GOP hopeful Mitt Romney, Silverman offered to don a bikini and have traditional lesbian intercourse with [Sheldon] Adelson, 78. (We’ll leave exactly what she means up to your imagination, or you can watch Silverman try to demonstrate on her dog in the video.)

The video below is a somewhat the cleaned up version. Though *viewer discretion is [still] advised*. The more explicit version is here.

YouTube Preview Image

Can we say; ‘freak without a leash’? “Yes we can”.

“Sugar daddy” irony:

The video ends by saying it was paid for by the Jewish Council for Education and Research…the pro-Obama Super PAC backed by none other than the son of George Soros.

Talk about ironic, and somewhat vile.  One billionaire attempts to sully the reputation of a fellow billionaire by slamming his wealth and undue influence, by prostituting a clueless comedienne.

Stay classy, Alexander Soros.

POTUS and the Gay Pron King.

(New York Post) –ONE of the “bundlers” who has raised $50,000 to $100,000 for the Barack Obama presidential campaign is Terrence Bean, who once controlled the biggest producer of gay porn in America.

Bean, the first gay on Sen. Obama’s National Finance Committee, is the sole trustee of the Charles M. Holmes Foundation, which owned Falcon Studios, Jock Studios and Mustang Studios, the producers of about $10 million worth of all-male pornography a year.
……
In 2002, Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongowski returned a $15,000 contribution from Conwest to avoid the “taint” of the porn connection. Bean told Page Six yesterday, “I asked the company to donate, and they did. To avoid the appearance of anything, he [Kulongowski] returned it.” [...]

But wait there’s more! Video of Obama thanking Terrance ‘Terry’ Bean for organizing his reelection campaign fundraiser held this evening [July 24, 2012] in Portland, Oregon.

“I want to thank someone who put so much work into this event, Terry Bean.  Give Terry a big round of applause.”

H/T Daniel Halper of The Weekly Standard

Edit: Let me be clear, it’s not teh ‘gay’ I’m  referring to as “sleazy”, it’s teh pron.
