And on Today’s episode of The World In My Eyes, we are doing something that I love doing… honoring our Vets. So today’s episode is dedicated to those who have served, those still serving and those yet to serve this great country proud. That’s right, heathens, today, we’re talking Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is a quintessentially American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. It was originally known as Decoration Day and originated in the years following the US Civil War but didn’t become an official federal holiday until 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades.
Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season. But for nearly 150 years, Americans have gathered in late spring to honor the sacrifice of those who have given their lives in service to their country. What began with dozens of informal commemorations of those killed in the Civil War has grown to become one of the nation’s most solemn and hallowed holidays. From its earliest incarnation as “Decoration Day” to its modern-day observances, check out some surprising facts about the history of Memorial Day.
Memorial Day and its traditions may have ancient roots.
While the first commemorative Memorial Day events weren’t held in the United States until the late 19th century, the practice of honoring those who have fallen in battle dates back thousands of years. The ancient Greeks and Romans held annual days of remembrance for loved ones (including soldiers) each year, festooning their graves with flowers and holding public festivals and feasts in their honor. In Athens, public funerals for fallen soldiers were held after each battle, with the remains of the dead on display for public mourning before a funeral procession took them to their internment in the Kerameikos, one of the city’s most prestigious cemeteries. One of the first known public tributes to war dead was in 431 B.C., when the Athenian general and statesman Pericles delivered a funeral oration praising the sacrifice and valor of those killed in the Peloponnesian War—a speech that some have compared in tone to Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

There are so many leaks pouring out of our intelligence community that pretty soon they will need adult diapers. Also, could the latest leak regarding classified information related to the bombing in Mancester, England have been a planned tip-off to terrorists in hiding?

Former Navy Seal Carl Higbie told pop singer Katy Perry to “go to hell” Thursday for comments she made in favor of open borders after the Manchester suicide bombing.
Fox News host Shannon Bream asked Higbie what he thought of requiring immigrants to take cultural classes to aid assimilation efforts in the wake of terror attacks.
“If you come to America, you’re American and nothing else,” Higbie said. “[But] we don’t have people who respect the culture of the United States of America.” Richie Renegade Nation Always Remember Marla Keppler Co Founder Renegade Talk Radio

Hello Renegade Nation! This is Tuesday, May 23, 2017 and this show covers some recent developments in the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer, Seth Rich, which has not been adequately investigated. There’s a reason for that and you’ll see what I mean. Many people have speculated that Seth Rich was the one who leaked the extensive emails from inside the DNC to WikiLeaks. A variety of people have come forward with statements not only about Seth Rich’s unusual condition upon leaving the local bar he often frequented that night, the over the top paranoid atmosphere in Washington DC these days over the Seth Rich killing, but also, a very convincing and revealing statement has been made by an anonymous attending surgical resident on staff that early morning at Washington’s Hospital Center. He states, for example, that Seth Rich was not only alive when he reached the emergency room, but that the surgery this resident surgeon participated in reveals the Rich had not suffered serious fatal injuries and was in fact very much alive for at least 8 hours after admission to the hospital. There’s much more to this story, Renegade Nation.
I also cover President Trump’s first official overseas visit currently underway. I “Connect The Dots” revealed in the President’s very itinerary and what is obvious is that these stops, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, Brussels and Sicily are most definitely of historical importance, beyond what is being publically discussed in White House press briefings and the mainstream media.
And finally, I bring breaking news of the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against the Commmissioner of the Internal Revenue. The mainstream media has certainly not covered the findings in this important court case – but, Renegade Nation, it is extremely good news for the beleaguered taxpayers in the United States of America!
As always, thanks for listening, I hope you enjoy this very revealing show, in all of it’s revealing aspects! Everly Isbe

You can't co-exist with people who want to kill you. She says this as she sits in a hotel room surrounded by guards, eating room service, while parents bury their children. I'm sick of these idiots. Bet she'd get upset if we banned large gatherings (like concerts) and took her money away. Then she'd car.
