Texas Governor Abbott Declares February 2nd To Be Chris Kyle Day

Texas Governor Declares ‘Chris Kyle Day’ – Breitbart

.

.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared February 2nd to be “Chris Kyle Day” to honor the Texan who became known the most lethal sniper in American history. Kyle was also recently immortalized in the blockbuster film “American Sniper.”

Kyle was credited with 150 sniper kills during his four tours of duty in Iraq as a Navy Seal. He was tragically shot and killed on February 2, 2013, while trying to help a fellow veteran who was allegedly suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Taya Kyle, the widow of Chris Kyle, was recently honored by the organization AmericanSnipers.org with a donation of $62,000. According to a Breitbart News article by AWR Hawkins, the group raised the money by raffling a McMillan .338 Lapua sniper rifle. She also recently made news by shooting an antelope on a hunting trip taken to honor her late husband.

After his death, Kyle was honored with a memorial service in the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The service along with the miles-long funeral procession were also featured in the movie honoring Kyle.

During that service, then Governor Rick Perry said, “Chris Kyle was the public face of an anonymous breed of American warrior who are handed the hardest missions and assume the largest risks,” Former Governor Rick Perry said. “Chris was among the very best at what he did, and he saved countless American lives in the process. Our state and our nation suffered a profound loss with his passing. I am honored to have known Chris and to have called him my friend. Anita and I send our deepest condolences to his wife, Taya, his children and the thousands of service members that were his extended family.”

Jesse Ventura: “Chris Kyle was no hero”. Green Beret to Ventura You are a dirtbag imposter

Well, Jesse Ventura has stepped in it hasn’t he?

After already suing Chris Kyle’s widow, Jesse Ventura still doesn’t know what to do with himself. He is calling out Chris Kyle as a ‘coward’ and refusing to go see American Sniper.

See Green Beret, Bryan Sikes’, response to Jesse Ventura:

GREEN BERET SLAMS JESSE VENTURA: “You’re A Dirtbag Imposter; NEVER F–K With A Fellow Operator’s Family”

I’m officially calling you out Jesse Ventura, you dirtbag imposter. Let it be known to all that take a minute to read this: if you cannot undeniably prove you were once a SOF guy or a SEAL, it’s because you never were one. I don’t know how it would be possible to be a former/current SOF operator and not have irrefutable proof. The fact that this claim still remains a topic of debate has led me and many others to believe you never were a SEAL.

Jesse, for your own information, just because you may have met an operator in passing or one that allowed you the privilege of shaking their hand, doesn’t make you one. Chasing an alien through the jungle in a movie doesn’t make you one either. But hey, if I’m wrong, then prove it tough guy. Being “sort of” a SEAL doesn’t make you a SEAL. Leading people to believe that you killed people during interviews doesn’t mean you actually killed people either.

Let’s assume for a moment that you actually had the intestinal fortitude to successfully complete any sort of selection course to become an operator; you egregiously violated rule number 1 in Special Operations…You NEVER f*#k with a fellow operator’s family. For those that don’t know, Jesse Ventura is suing Taya Kyle, wife of Chris Kyle and author of the book, American Sniper. Chris Kyle, a man respected by all of SOF, was murdered in 2013 at a gun range and Ventura is suing his wife for…get this…defamation of character?  That’s laughable.

I thought you had to have some substance of character to be defamed in the first place?

You’re a joke, plain and simple.

You claim to be a former operator but you are more than willing to violate a sacred rule and sue the wife of one? That’s real badass of you, I’m sure you’ve got a lot of operator friends in your corner on this one. I’ll be the first to tell you, your job offers didn’t dry up as a result of claims made in Kyle’s book about you being punched in the face for running your mouth. They dried up because you’re a washed up loser that has nothing to offer. Worst yet, you’re not even a “has been”, you’re a “never was.” Go back to reporting about conspiracy theories on cable access and late night AM radio.

I know how important it is for you to have your “good name” cleared…..right? You did say in an interview about this pending lawsuit, “It’s not about the money; it’s about clearing my name. It’s a lie.” Well, in the unlikely event you actually win this lawsuit, and it isn’t about the money, I‘d expect you to keep to your word and donate any monetary settlement to the Special Operations Wounded Warrior Foundation or something similar.

In closing, Jesse, I do apologize to you in advance for not writing this in crayon or having pictures for you to follow along with, but maybe you can have your lawyer read it to you. Lastly, you don’t look like a traitor to the military because of Kyle’s claims; you’re a Traitor for going after an operator’s family.

Michael Moore tries to be relevant again by spitting on the US military

It has been a while since I posted anything about Moore, he has, frankly, become irrelevant. But he is back, trying to gin up some attention by smearing a man far better than himself

Chris Kyle’s pinpoint accuracy saved countless American lives on the battlefield and turned him into a legend.

Via The Hollywood Reporter: Warner Bros. is reporting that American Sniper is set to post a Friday-through-Sunday of $90.2M with a cume to date of $93.6M. By tomorrow, with the MLK holiday, the Village Roadshow co-prod cume is looking to post a four-day of $105.2M and an overall cume of $108.6M. Unheard of for any wide release at this time of year. What record did the movie American Sniper NOT break?

Such news caused a severe case of Offendeditis for Moore, who took to Twitter to show how classless he still is

Moore later praised those who killed Americans who liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein and fought to keep it free from Islamist terrorists as “brave”.

My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse

Cowardice? Clearly Moore has no idea what the word means, which is odd, considering he is the walking definition of cowardice

Moore later praised those who killed Americans who liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein and fought to keep it free from Islamist terrorists as “brave”.

“But if you’re on the roof of your home defending it from invaders who’ve come 7K miles, you are not a sniper, u are brave, u are a neighbor.”

What a waste of skin. Another US hero and warrior responds

Huge Turnout Expected For Navy SEAL Chris Kyle Memorial At Cowboys Stadium

Huge Turnout Expected For Chris Kyle Memorial At Cowboys Stadium – Fort Worth Star-Telegram


Click on image above to watch live video streaming of event. (2pm ET)

Huge lines of people began forming outside Cowboys Stadium on Monday to attend a memorial service for Chris Kyle, the former Navy SEAL sniper who was slain last week near Glen Rose.

At about 11:30 a.m., parking lots outside of the stadium were filling up quickly for the 1 p.m. service at the 80,000-seat stadium.

The crowd entered slowly into the stadium with the hymn Mansions of the Lord playing on the P.A. system and images of Chris Kyle on the jumbo screen.

No politicians were expected to speak at the service, however, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin posted on her Facebook that she and her husband, Todd, were attending the memorial. “I find it sad to see that flags aren’t flying at half staff for this American hero,” Palin wrote on the page.

Kyle, co-author of the book American Sniper, will be buried in the Texas State Cemetery in Austin on Tuesday. The Patriot Guard Riders have announced that they will escort the hearse from Arlington to Austin.

Free parking was available in Lots 1, 2 and 10, nearest to East Randol Mill Road and North Collins Street. People will enter the stadium at Gates A and K on the north side.

“In honor of the reverence this memorial service deserves, Chris Kyle’s family has asked that the general public not take photographs or record video during the ceremony,” police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said. “No cameras will be allowed inside.”

Also, no bags, purses or substantial handheld items will be allowed, Richard said.

Nancy Clayton, office manager of Midlothian Funeral Home, which is handling arrangements, said Kyle’s family will have a private funeral separate from the public memorial service.

Kyle, 38, and friend Chad Littlefield, 35, both of Midlothian, were shot to death Saturday at the Rough Creek Lodge near Glen Rose.

Your quote of the day

Comes from Victory Girls, in response to those miscreants who mocked the death of American hero Chris Kyle

I’ll get straight to the point today. Most of humanity is gifted a sense of empathy and a soul, and then there are those who should be fed broken glass thrice daily with gasoline chasers to wash it down. I like to call those people “liberals”.

It is powerful, go read the entire post. And I love the final line, advising us how to address these types of bottom feeders who spend half their time bemoaning “Right Wing vitriol” and the other half engaging in Left Wing vitriol

“Bless your little hypocritical heart, fuck you.”

Indeed!

 

Of course, here comes the knuckle-dragging Leftist scum to revel at the death of a hero

Some people are just foul, and beneath contempt. Twitchy has the Tweets, if you can stand to read them. Personally I could not. Those that “LOL” or talk of “Karma” when a hero falls, a hero that fought to preserve the rights of these miscreants are evil. If they truly believe in Karma, you would think they would keep their mouths shut.

 

Official statement from Chris Kyle’s non-profit

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the non-profit organization that Chris helped establish, my heart is breaking. Our foundation, FITCO Cares, this country and most importantly, his wife Taya and their children, lost a dedicated father and husband, a lifelong patriot and an American hero.

Chris Kyle was a hero for his courageous efforts protecting our country as a U.S. Navy SEAL during four tours of combat. Moreover, he was a hero for his efforts stateside when he helped develop the FITCO Cares Foundation. What began as a plea for help from Chris looking for in-home fitness equipment for his brothers- and sisters-in-arms struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) became an organization that will carry that torch proudly in his honor.

Chris died doing what he filled his heart with passion – serving soldiers struggling with the fight to overcome PTSD. His service, life and premature death will never be in vain. May God watch over his family and all those who considered Chris a true friend.

He will forever be missed.

The news stunned me last night. It broke my heart for his wife, his children, his family and fiends. This nation was built on the actions of heroes and heroes like Chris have kept this nation free and strong. Sometimes we forget that these men, the Green Berets, SEALS, Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance, and all the rest of our Special Forces, are just men. They are so highly trained, so skilled, such great warriors that we forget they are mortal. God bless every one of them for their devotion to duty, their sacrifice, and their continuation of the American legacy of heroism.

 

Latest on Chris Kyle murder

On Twitter this lady, Tamara Jolee seems to have some good information

Said alleged suspect Routh displayed aggression, “mental issues” all the way back in HS. Later became Marine and aggression “accelerated”

Other victim along with Chris Kyle is Chad Littlefield, also from here. Both leave behind wives and children.

Her friend is married to the second victim.

 

Shocking News- Top American Sniper Chris Kyle killed? UPDATED Suspect, Eddie Ray Routh, 25 arrested. Updated! Killers photo found?

According to this story at the Dallas Morning News Chris Kyle was shot to death today

Lancaster Police arrested a man in connection with a double slaying in Erath County. Unconfirmed media reports say one of the dead is top Navy Seals sniper Chris Kyle.

Police saw a suspect matching the description of the man wanted in Erath County. After a short chase, they arrested Eddie Routh, 25.

WFAA is reporting that Kyle died like the hero he was

Two people were killed Saturday at a gun range in Erath County.

Three sources tell News 8 that one of the victims was Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL and author of the New York Times bestselling book, “American Sniper.”

Kyle was shot point-blank while helping another soldier who is recovering from post traumatic stress syndrome, News 8 learned.

An alert was issued for the suspect, who was believed to be driving a black Ford F-350 truck with large tires and rims.

Police have reportedly captured the suspect in Lancaster, south of Dallas. The suspect was believed to be highly trained with military experience

The shooting location is 53 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

More updates as I get them. Please pray for Chris’s wife and two children.

It is being reported that the man arrested is Eddie Routh, 25. I found an Eddie Routh that graduated from Midlothian High School in 2006, so the age would match. Midlothian is just south of me. This report claims the man arrested was a Marine from Midlothian, Texas. The first question I have is was the man they were helping the one that killed them?

Here is the latest I have found

Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL and author of the best-selling book American Sniper, and a second person were shot and killed Saturday at a gun range in Erath County, U.S. Marshals said.

Late Saturday, Lancaster police arrested a man who they say matched the description of a man wanted in connection with the slayings. After a brief chase, officers arrested 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, according to Lancaster police spokesperson Kelly Hooten.

Reporting on the shootings, the Stephenville Empire-Tribune said Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant would not discuss the victims. But the newspaper said that a source working at Rough Creek Lodge, which has a gun range at which the newspaper reported the slayings occurred, confirmed that one of the victims was Kyle.

Apparently, Kyle and the others were attending a veterans charity event

A close friend tells Breitbart News that Chris Kyle was at a veterans’ charity event, helping a fellow military member learn sniper shooting technique, and that he was shot by a Marine suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. The suspect, Eddie Ray Routh, has been arrested in Lancaster, Texas in connection with the shooting.

So if that report is true, it seems to indicate that Kyle was not shot by the man he was helping. Unless I am just misreading it somehow.

Pat Dollard has gotten a tip that this is a picture of Routh

Thanks to a tip to PatDollard.com, we found what is apparently a picture of the assumed killer of Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle.

The apparent shooter is Eddie Ray Routh, 25, “a former Marine who is said to suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.”

Here is another update from the local NBC affiliate

Empire-Tribune reporter Sara Vanden Berge told NBC 5 that it did not sound like an accidental shooting but appeared to be an intentional shooting.

Vanden Berge said Kyle was at the shooting range with the suspect and another man. She said her understanding was that Kyle had an open invitation to visit and use the range at Rough Creek and did not have a guide with him.

A source told her that the man suspected in the shootings was a veteran and may have been doing some sort of shooting therapy, she told NBC 5.

Lancaster police confirmed that Routh was arrested Saturday night and that he was a wanted murder suspect.

Why Did The ‘Deadliest’ SEAL Sniper Punch Jesse Ventura In The Face? (Video)

Why Did The ‘Deadliest’ SEAL Sniper Punch Jesse Ventura In The Face? – The Blaze

Imagine what would happen if a man in a bar told a group of Navy SEALs that he:

* Disagrees with the war.
* Believes they (the military) are murderers, killing innocent people… men, women and children
* Thought they probably deserve to lose a few of their own.

You are probably wondering if the guy making the offensive comments is still alive.

He is alive, and he also happens to be Jesse Ventura, a SEAL alum/reservist and the former governor of Minnesota.

Making matters worse, Ventura’s comments were directed at Chris Kyle, the Navy SEAL known as “the military’s deadliest sniper.”

This little known incident was brought out during an interview on SiriusXM’s Opie and Anthony radio show on Wednesday. Speaking exclusively to The Blaze, Gregg “Opie” Hughes explained that he had a tip to ask Kyle about his run-in with Jesse Ventura. So Opie casually brought it up and the story unfolded.

……………

It was in 2006 when Ventura and the SEALs happened to be in the same bar, for very different reasons. The SEALs were holding a wake to honor a lost member of their team. Jesse was in town to speak to some new graduates of the SEAL program. During his military career from 1969-75, Ventura was a member of the Navy’s elite Underwater Demolition Team or UDT (the UDT was the precursor to the SEALs) and Jesse is a SEAL reservist. You might expect that sharing the history of membership in an elite military unit would garner a lifetime of mutual respect. Not so with Ventura.

As stated above, the SEALs were in the bar to mourn the loss of team member. They had gathered with the family of Medal of Honor recipient Mike Mansoor when Ventura made it known to many that he did not agree with the war. Kyle claims that he approached the former governor, and asked him to keep it down, informing Jesse that the family of the deceased was also with them.

That’s when Ventura unleashed more of his insensitive comments and Kyle reportedly countered with a one-punch knockdown.

Earlier this week, The Blaze featured a story about Chris Kyle and his autobiography that explains his amazing prowess with a rifle. We know now that Chris is also accurate with his fists and at close range.

Here’s the interview from the Opie and Anthony show on Wednesday. Chris Kyle explained the encounter with Jesse “the Body” Ventura.

(Content warning, this video contains what the Navy might call “salty language:”)

Following the interview, “Opie” says that Chris Kyle told him that very few people knew about the Jesse Ventura incident and that his source must be “very inside.”
