And of course, this has to come out of the looney liberal state of California.
A teacher and city council member of Pico Rivera California has now come under fire for an insult filled rant in which he belittled the intelligence of those who serve and have served in our military.
In the rant, this so-called teacher and politician went on to actually say people who go into the military do so because they have no other options. That their parents didn’t love them enough to push them enough academically and because of this, they didn’t take care of academic business in school. So basically he insulted every brave American who has ever put on a uniform and fought for the very liberties that give him the right to spew his crap to our children. He went on to finish off his asinine rant by sadly stating that our military takes the lowest of the low.
Salcido currently teaches U.S. government at El Rancho High School and is also a member of the Pico Rivera City Council as well as a former mayor. This scumbag was elected to the Pico Rivera City Council back in 1999 and served as mayor in 2002, 2010 and 2015, according to his online biography.
The student who recorded Salcido is an aspiring recruit to the Marines who comes from a long line of Marines, but he didn’t want to be identified for fear of reprisal. President Donald Trump was quick to offer him a visit to the White House.
As a person who recently went back to school for a short period of time, I can honestly say I would put up the IQ level of any military recruit against that of any teacher. Although the teachers who teach without indoctrinating are superb and very hard to come by these days it doesn’t take much to be a teacher. Unless you count knowing how to whine about not making enough money and saying “I Love Hillary.” But it takes a lot of smarts, both academic and street to be a soldier.
This teacher should be fired immediately, don’t you agree?
The El Rancho High School senior who captured his teacher’s profanity-laced classroom rant against the military on a secretly recorded video that went viral will be honored Saturday by some grateful vets in San Pedro.
Victor Quinonez, who was wearing a Marines sweatshirt in class the day he took the video, now attends the Pico Rivera school accompanied by a chaperone for his own safety, according to his mother, Karen Rodriguez. The teacher, Gregory Salcido who also serves on the Pico Rivera City Council, has been put on paid leave by the district as the incident is investigated.
Some have demanded that Salcido be fired. He could not be reached for comment.
No one expected the six-minute recording to cause such an uproar, Victor’s mother said. “I actually shared it with one of my friends and she posted on Facebook,” she said. “From there it went viral.”
On Saturday, 17-year-old Quinonez will be presented with a certificate of recognition at a 5 p.m. ceremony hosted by American Legion Post 61 on board the Battleship Iowa in San Pedro, where the post is based.
‘Lowest of the low’
On the recording, Salcido is heard telling students in the classroom that member of the military are “the frickin’ lowest of the low.” He mocks those who go into the military as “desperate” and having “no other options,” and tells his students that joining the military means they have no other options.
It means, he says, “Your parents didn’t love you enough to push you,” he said.
Editor’s note: Some of the video embedded in this story contains profanity.
Insisting recruiters shouldn’t be allowed on campus, he also said: “We don’t have pimps come into schools. ‘Anyone want to be a ‘ho?’ They’re going to friggin lie to you. …”
Terry Bonich, a Marine and commander of American Legion Post 61, wasn’t amused.
“I was kind of shocked by it, I couldn’t believe what I heard,” the San Pedro resident said.
The event honoring Victor — the oldest of five children — and his family was seen as a way to support the student for taking a risk by making the recording. Victor, whose father is a Marine who served in Afghanistan, hopes to join the Corps when he graduates, his mother said.
“I happen to be a Marine so I was a little unhappy to hear that gentleman talking about the (military) services the way he did, especially to high school kids,” said Bonich, who served from 1974-80. “You have to have a college degree to be an officer. You’re not stupid, you’re not ignorant. You’re very intelligent.”
City Council expected to weigh in again
Pico Rivera Mayor Gustavo Camacho said the issue is expected to come up at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, perhaps in the form of a motion on the agenda that hasn’t been finalized.
“We were extremely surprised and quite frankly disappointed” by Salcido’s remarks, Camacho said in a telephone interview Thursday. “It’s cast a negative shadow upon us at a time when we are about to celebrate our 60th anniversary.”
The city, he said, has a long connection to the military.
“We are a community founded on the principals, values and sacrifices of veterans,” he said, adding that Pico Rivera boasts two Veterans of Foreign Wars posts. “Somehow, in some way, we are all connected to a veteran. A good percentage of the residents of Pico Rivera are either veterans themselves or have relatives who are veterans.”
Camacho said Salcido has not been heard from since the incident.
“No one has been able to communicate with him that I’m aware of,” he said. The council already has removed Salcido from his committee appointments but it would require a voter recall to remove him from office if Salcido does not resign, he said.
Public welcome at ceremony
The public is welcome to attend Saturday’s ceremony in San Pedro, Bonich said, adding he was “looking forward to meeting this young man.”
Victor also was invited by White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly to visit the White House, Rodriguez said. A fundraising page has been set up to help the family pay for the trip.
She said her son “did the right thing” but added that the threats have been disconcerting. She believes Salcido should be fired.
Bonich had a different thought.
“I don’t want to see anybody lose their job over something like this, but I think he should be reprimanded,” Bonich said. “Put him in a Marine Corps boot camp for three weeks and see how he handles that.”

11 Texas Soldiers Mysteriously Drop Dead, All Had One Chilling Thing In Common
Eleven U.S. Army soldiers have been found dead on and off one U.S. military base
Eleven U.S. Army soldiers have been found dead on and off U.S. military base Fort Hood in Texas under “mysterious circumstances.” While working to determine how nearly a dozen young and healthy men were suddenly dropping dead, investigators found one chilling thing between them that they all had in common, showing this likely wasn’t a coincidence at all.
Over the past three months, police in Fort Hood have been overwhelmed with an unusual number of death investigations, all of whom have been Fort Hood soldiers who are dropping at an alarming rate. The most recent victim was 23-year-old Sgt. Alex Taylor of Texas City, Texas, who was found unresponsive while working Wednesday on the base. Now, the Army’s Criminal Investigations Command is taking a closer look at Taylor’s death, Stars and Stripes reported Friday.
“At this point in the investigative process we do not suspect foul play, but have not completely ruled it out while we conduct a complete and thorough death investigation,” Criminal Investigations spokesman Christopher Grey said.
This response comes after a series of mysterious deaths started piling up, the first one occurring on October 12 and haven’t stopped since. Another soldier was found unresponsive at work in that same month, and each month since, all being discovered in the same strange manner, all of which were healthy one day and dead the next. However, the next three deaths all shared something else in common that make their fatalities different than the first ones.
24-year-old Pvt. Kevin Paulino from Fort Hood died from a gunshot wound while he was off base as the first of three to have been killed in the same way, according to Stars and Stripes. Their deaths are also under investigation by the Army since answers into what happened was not immediately clear.
Pvt. Dakota Lee Stump, 19, was another of the long line of fatalities who was finally found almost a month after going missing on October 10 when he was declared as having gone AWOL. However, his body was found Nov. 3 next to his flipped vehicle by soldiers conducting land navigation training just 100 yards from the road, an Army release stated.
Three other soldiers all from Fort Hood died on November 12 in a suicide bomb attack at Bagram air base in Afghanistan: Staff Sgt. John Perry, 30; Private First Class Tyler Iubelt, 20; and Sgt. 1st Class Allan Brown, 46, the Houston Chronicle reported.
There have never been so many deaths in one time among soldiers all from the same base. What’s even more odd is that the mysterious fatalities happen in threes under the same circumstances. There definitely seems to be something intentional about the commonality of them all being from Fort Hood since the pattern that’s now evident can’t just be a coincidence.
BREAKING: Trump Just Ordered Military To Fill U.S. Streets With Everything They Have – He’s NOT Messing Around
THEY’RE HITTING THE STREETS!!
President Donald Trump has issued orders to the military to flood the streets with tanks, soldiers, and everything they’ve got. This was a marching order directed towards the U.S. military and the Pentagon, who has confirmed the communication. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has also confirmed that plans are underway for what Trump wants to be planned and enacted as soon as possible.
The President envisions soldiers rolling down the street on tanks, on foot, and covering every aspect of the designated street locations. This will stun every American who sees what’s happening as they witness a massive show of strength that will be shown in the military parade that President Trump wants to be planned. The ceremony will be a massive show of force while honoring the brave Americans who serve the country to fight for freedom, protect people, and ensure that our great nation stays as amazing as possible.
Trump has stated that the Bastille Day celebration in Paris inspired him. He exclaimed how lovely it was and that it was honorable and a fantastic display of the military. He was quoted as saying “It was one of the greatest parades I’ve ever seen…It was two hours on the button, and it was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France.”
If there’s a military parade in America, then it could be one of the most amazing things our civilians have ever had the pleasure of watching.
Washington Post reported more on Trump’s marching orders:
“President Trump’s vision of soldiers marching and tanks rolling down the boulevards of Washington is moving closer to reality in the Pentagon and White House, where officials say they have begun to plan a grand military parade later this year showcasing the might of America’s armed forces.
Trump has long mused publicly and privately about wanting such a parade, but a Jan. 18 meeting between Trump and top generals in the Pentagon’s tank — a room reserved for top-secret discussions — marked a tipping point, according to two officials briefed on the planning.
Surrounded by the military’s highest-ranking officials, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., Trump’s seemingly abstract desire for a parade was suddenly heard as a presidential directive, the officials said.
“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” said a military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the planning discussions are supposed to remain confidential. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”
After The Washington Post first published this story, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement confirming that plans are underway.
“President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe,” Sanders said. “He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation.”
The Pentagon also confirmed the plans following The Post’s initial report. “We are aware of the request and are in the process of determining specific details. We will share more information throughout the planning process,” Defense Department spokesman Thomas Crosson said in a statement.”
Military parades are not usually done in America. Our need to show our strength to possible opponents is unnecessary and our allies are well aware of the capability of the American powers that be. The military parade will be a treat to our great Americans and a civil and honorary ceremony for the troops, something they deserve.
The American civilians would be the most entertained as they’re treated by a beautiful display of amazing military technology and weaponry. Americans don’t usually get to see the American military placed on display. The very little that we get to look at is generally on the Internet or television. Some folks live near an armory and get to see a little bit of the fantastic items that our military has, but a military parade will be astounding.
There might be several critics, but those critics might be from people who oppose the military or are part of the “resist” movement that has fought Donald Trump ever since the inception of him running for President. That’s no big deal because haters who are anti-American don’t like anything, including themselves. The opposing liberals are irrelevant and intolerant, which is why they’re not taken seriously.
Will you join the festivities if the Pentagon plans a military parade?
BREAKING! Lowe’s Just Shocked Every Military Family In America With New Rule Effective NOW In ALL Stores
THEY SAID ITS BECAUSE
Major retailers around the nation have become battle grounds for political correctness, using their businesses as soap boxes to make social statements. In a time when online business has disrupted the retail market and big box stores are diminishing by the dozen, it doesn’t seem wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance – as Target seems to have learned the hard way.
However, Lowe’s is not one of these stores and simply stays true to their core values and the American people.
We saw this from the major home improvement retailer a couple of months ago when they went against the trend of catering to Islam with what they pulled from their stores. Now, we’re seeing it again in an even bigger way that proves there is a positive way to make a statement and it’s left military families in America in total shock.
What many American businesses, sports figures, and celebrities get routinely wrong is that they make political statements in vain to say they are against division, when they are really being an anti-American and perpetuating the problem. This often includes using their platform to publicly trash our president.
Lowes knows that while they may offend “some” people, they are promoting something better with their patriotism that we as a country can and should all get behind.
In this recent move, they are showing their appreciation in a big way for the men and women who fight for our freedom and right to make any social statement we want, with what’s coming to all their stores across the nation for military families.
Conservative Post reports:
Lowe’s is an American company that has made it known in the past that they are proud to be a part of this great nation. They have continually shown their support for our military, and now they have made an announcement that will help those in our military as well as their families. The company will be changing their military discount program in order to improve it for those defending our country.
They will be expanding the program to include more members of the military as well as their family members. I think we can all agree that those who put their lives aside to defend our freedom deserve everything they can possibly get.
This discount is more generous than most and goes beyond just brick and mortar stores. All military members and their families will be able to use it online and will receive free shipping as well.
“The discount is linked to a MyLowes account, which can be shared by a household. Once the service member signs up for the discount program, it will be linked to a MyLowes card that can also be used by their spouse,” Lowe’s spokeswoman Megan Lewis explained.
Even more impressive, is that Lowe’s isn’t going to make the process complicated to get the discount as is often the case with having to constantly show identification.
“Lowe’s has explained that they will not be asking for proof of ID anymore because they feel that it makes the process more complicated for the military members. This program change should help both military members and their families all over the country,” Conservative Post reported.
“We are proud to have a company like Lowe’s looking out for our military members. After all, they put their lives on the line for all of us. The least we can do is get them some good discounts and make their lives a little easier.”
To those who don’t value the sacrifice of our service members or recognize that these heroes are the backbone of our country, they probably think this is somehow unfair. They are probably also the same disgruntled people who took their business elsewhere after Lowe’s proudly pulled their ads from appearing in the commercial spots during the All American Muslim show on the TLC network.
Lowe’s probably lost far fewer customers than they gained from that move and aren’t missing them. Business is booming for those who choose to respect our country and the values this nation was built on, which is how it should be. The same can’t be said for companies who continue to cater to the liberal agenda.
The country needs to see more of this and likely will within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He constantly praises our military which is how it always should be.
American businesses should look at how Lowe’s treats our military members and follow their lead. It’s beyond time for this to be the trend as opposed to who can make a bigger anti-American social justice statement. Well done, Lowe’s!
Since we know that the liberal media will not get this great message out, be sure to share it so that every proud American knows where to take their business!
