Billy and Karen Vaughn
After finally choosing to view the barbaric, on-camera beheading by ISIS of freelance war correspondent James Foley, 
I have been left with a level of rage known only to those of us who have sacrificed unspeakable offerings on the altar of world peace.
My offering was my only son — Aaron Carson Vaughn. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team VI. He was killed in action
when a CH47D Chinook, carrying thirty Americans and eight Afghans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of
Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011.
Many times over the past three years, I have been asked what drove my son
to choose his particular career. What made him want to be a Navy SEAL? My
answer is simple.
Aaron Vaughn was a man who possessed the courage to acknowledge evil.
And evil, once truly acknowledged, demands response. Perhaps this is why
so few are willing to look it in the eye. It is much simpler — much safer —
to look the other way.
That is, unless you are the leader of the Free World.
As Commander-in-Chief, your actions — or lack thereof — Mr. President,
cost lives. As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face
and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America’s security —
but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it.
We know it. The world knows it.
Please vacate the people’s house and allow a man or woman of courage and substance to seize the reigns of this
out-of-control thug-fest and regain the balance we, America, have provided throughout our great history.
Thanks to your “leadership” from whatever multi-million dollar vacation you happen to be on at any given moment,
the world is in chaos. What’s been gained, you’ve lost. What’s been lost, you’ve decimated. You’ve demolished our
ability to hold the trust of allies. You’ve made a mockery of the title “President.” And you’ve betrayed the nation for which
my son and over 1.3 million others have sacrificed their very lives.
But this should come as no surprise, since your wife uttered a vile statement on Feb. 18, 2008, during the primary campaign —
one that speaks volumes of your true convictions. “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country,”
she said. I am sure my deceased son thanks you for that, Mrs. Obama. Oh, and you’re welcome.
Never in my lifetime have I witnessed such despair and such growing fear that the world’s last best hope, America,
has finally been dismantled. Perhaps the better word is transformed — fundamentally transformed. Come to think of it,
it’s become difficult — if not impossible — to believe things haven’t gone exactly as you planned, Mr. President.
Amazingly, in five short years, your administration has lurched from one disaster to another. You spearheaded the
ambitious rush to end the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan — with no plan on how to do so effectively. Also, the release of
“the Taliban five” in exchange for one American — without consulting Congress — is also on your shoulders.
You have been at the helm during unprecedented national security leaks — including, but not limited to the outing of
SEAL Team VI on the Bin laden raid, the outing of the Pakistani doctor who provided the intelligence for that raid,
the outing of Afghanistan’s CIA station chief, and the outing of your personal “kill list” to make you look tough. In addition,
75 percent of American deaths in Afghanistan and 83 percent of Americans-wounded-in-action have occurred on your watch,
according to
And now, we have this recent, heinous event: the beheading of an American citizen by a barbaric organization you foolishly
referred to as “the JV team” in your statements to the New Yorker magazine in January.
You, sir, are the JV team. It’s time for you to step down and allow a true leader to restore our honor and protect our sons
and daughters.
America has always been exceptional. And she will be again.
You, Mr. President, are a bump in our road.

That agency should be disbanded Now!

AMEN Carline!!  

The IRS and our BIG corrupt Government is way to BIG and out of control from the Lawlessness of the Obama-Nation Regime!!

GOD Bless these Parents of our fallen soldier that is a HERO!!!

Thank you for your sacrifice, Mr. and Mrs. Vaughn.

On behalf of a grateful remnant, I apologize for the choice of "style over principles" reflected by "we the people" in the mirror of this pathetic and ill managed, faithless, and cowardly government.  In fairness, we elected this unconstitutional "ruling class" through our collective willful ignorance, and apathy.

As a nation we have forgotten who we are, and settled for a tepid version of "liberty and justice" unworthy of the blood of your son.

My deepest condolences for your son and for our nation.


We;; said and believe me, your thoughts are echoed by millions

It could not have been put more eloquently. You did well!

We need him removed from office and put in prison to await treason hearings. Obama is way to arrogant to remove himself. Nixon made the class move that Obama will not at least not until he is tied to the IRS Fast & Furious and Benghazi scandals. Then he would bail. Comeon Gowdy and Issa lets step it up.

the only JV team sits in the white house, and should be charged with awol on the war on terror, and failure to keep his oath of office. after the failure, lies and coverups at Benghazi....I never thought that things could get worse...but Obama has proven that he has no intentions of protecting and defending the united states, and keeping his oath of office to the people of this country.

God Bless you Mr and Mrs Vaughn.  I salute you and the memory of you great and brave son.  Being a vet I understand the your feelings and as you have no idea how this idiot ever came to power and brought his regime of disgrace with him   I pray for our country and all our military personel everywhere.   I hope you don't mind if i pass this letter o to some friends whom I know will appreciate it as well.

      Take care and Be Safe and know many of us pray for you and your wonderful family.


God bless this couple for their absolutely accurate assessment of our current president and his administration. This country will not survive another 2 years of Obama's transformation (a.k.a. decimation) agenda. November mid-term elections are absolutely vital to start to end this tyranny. EVERYONE (except dead people...sorry, Obama!) needs to exercise the power/right to vote these people out!

If only more conservatives would just stand up and tell Obama a thing or two.


Now if the ISIS was to attack the IRS it would be the right thing to do, and then Obama would step in and put a stop to ISIS, because Obama wouldn't want that agency to be done way with after all there the people who are the tax police, and enforcement of taking your money. Remember it wasn't the FBI that jailed Big Al Capone, it was the IRS. Yes big Al didn't pay his taxes. Much like many Democrats of today. The only thing different today the IRS owns the DOJ and the White House and they won't serve the Law.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
