Marine Held in Mexico

Below is the response from one of my senators when I questioned them on Sgt. Thamoressi being held in a Mexican Prison.

Dear Mr. Mucha:
 
Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding the imprisonment of United States Marine Andrew Tahmooressi.  I appreciate hearing from all Pennsylvanians about the issues that matter most to them.
 
Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested in Mexico on March 31, 2014, after he reportedly crossed the U.S.-Mexico border with three firearms in his possession. On June 6, 2014, in an interview with CNN, Sgt. Tahmooressi said that on the day of his arrest he had crossed the border by foot, stayed at a hotel and spent time in Tijuana. It has been reported that he is being held in La Mesa penitentiary in Tijuana on a weapons charge and is awaiting a rescheduled trial date that has yet to be announced.
 
As your United States Senator, I am committed to ensuring the safety of all Americans at home and abroad.  According to State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki, Secretary Kerry raised this issue with Mexican officials during his recent trip to Mexico City. Further, Ms. Psaki stated that Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been visited multiple times by U.S. consular officials. Please be assured that I will continue to monitor Sgt. Tahmooressi’s case.
 
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Please be assured I will continue to   Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about this or any other matter of importance to you.
 
For more information on this or other issues, I encourage you to visit my website, http://casey.senate.gov.  I hope you will find this online office a comprehensive resource to stay up-to-date on my work in Washington, request assistance from my office or share with me your thoughts on the issues that matter most to you and to Pennsylvania.
 
Sincerely,
Bob Casey
United States Senator

Marine Jailed in Mexico

Below is a copy of the email I have sent to the US State Department regarding my outrage over the Veteran being held in a Mexican Jail.

I will update after I receive a response.

U.S. State Department

Complaints

Concerning Marine Jailed in Mexico

2201 C St. NW

Washington, DC 20520

 

To whom it may concern,

As a taxpaying, USA citizen, I am very dissatisfied in the recent events concerning the State Department. Correct me if I am mistaken, as a United States Citizen, I should be entitled to assistance from the State Department when concerning international affairs. However, this is not the case when speaking of Andrew Tahmooressi – a jailed Marine and VETERAN of the United States Military. Andrew made a wrong turn along the border, and accidentally crossed into Mexico, where he was detained on preposterous charges. Despite the outcry from the public, the State Department has apparently done

NOTHING to assist this veteran. I am disgraced and ashamed of the lack of action by the State Department. Must I remind you, the government works for WE THE PEOPLE? The State Department should contact their Mexican counterparts and have this Marine released IMMEDIATELY. The citizens of this great nation should be able to rely on the government to protect them and support them when abroad. Even worse, Andrew is a VETERAN AND A MARINE. Our government’s first priority should be out veterans. As we have been following the VA Scandal recently, I think the State Department’s first priority should be our veterans, so they do not end up being scrutinized similarly to the VA.

So, as employees of WE THE PEOPLE, I demand that the State Department assist the jailed Marine in Mexico, and demand his release IMMEDIATELY.

I look forward to hearing your response.

Sincerely,

Jared Mucha

Happy 50th Birthday, Sarah Palin!

Happy 50th birthday to my idol, and hero, Sarah Palin. Today, we honor (in my opinion), the greatest woman of our time. Sarah constantly evokes fear in both the Republican and Democrat parties with her support of TEA Party, and common-sense conservative values. Even while filling her role as a loving mother! After proving her reform abilities while serving as Wasilla Mayor, Mama Grizzly proceeded on to give hope to millions of Alaskans as governor, and eventually became the first female Republican VP nominee. Since then, Sarah has become a renowned bestseller, an avid Tea Party Supporter, and has traveled the country calling for a fundamental restoration of America. Sarah gives millions of Americans hope, including myself, advocating to get this country back on the right track! The conservative movement is much stronger with you as our inspirational leader, and America is a much stronger nation with your guiding words and ideas.
So, from the land of people that [Obama says] cling to God and guns(Western PA), Happy Birthday Sarah! I hope you have an amazing day, and continue doing what you are doing!

God Bless you and your family.

"The challenges before us, they can seem daunting, but we must not lose our optimistic spirit. It's with optimism that America has always come through throughout our history!" - Sarah Palin, Restoring America Together Speech

"I am Malala"

Recently, I have been reading the wonderful book, "I Am Malala". It's very interesting to hear first-hand this young girl's account of the terrors she and her people went through because of the Taliban. It is also interesting to hear what she and her family stands for and how they were champions for equal rights somewhere it is desperately needed; Pakistan. I wish her the best in her future endeavors, and stand with her advocating for equal rights and more specifically - the right to an education. "Knowledge is power". I also must add that I am now a fan of Malala Yousafzai! Maybe someday our paths will cross and we can meet each other!

I have truly found this book interesting and a great read. I recommend it for all to read!

Here is a poem Malala referenced in her book that I have not heard before, and I found it very powerful.

"...written by Martin Niemoller, who had lived in Nazi Germany."

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wan't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I was not a Catholic.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

" I knew he was right. If people were silent, nothing would change". - Malala Yousafzai

Phil Robertson "Indefinitely Removed"

What is this country coming to?
Once again, the political correctness police are at it again, attack a wholesome, amazing, average-American family for expressing their beliefs that may offend someone. Phil Robertson was suspended "Indefinitely" from the hit TV show Duck Dynasty on A&E. (http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/12/18/phil-robertson-suspended-after-comments-about-homosexuality/)

It's a SHAME that this great American family is being hurt by the word police, and it's a SHAME that this is what our country is coming to. It is a RIGHT that we have to express our beliefs, and A&E should accept that and allow Phil to continue on the show. After all, the Robertson's have made A&E a LOT of money off of their hit show. They should be thankful they have Phil, not act like he is replaceable, or dispensable.

We need to fundamentally restore this country, or we are in for a RUDE awakening.

If you would like to email A&E to express your outrage, like I just did, they can be contacted here: aefeedback@aenetworks.com

And remember, Boycott A&E until they realize the mistake they have just made!
You can participate on twitter using hash tags, #BoycottAE and #StandWithPhil

Just thought I would share this funny comment from Jay Leno!
