Clay’s Call to Action: Donate to ‘Raise the Black’ to Benefit Fallen ICTF Soldiers

I would like to take a moment to direct your attention over to a cause that is near and dear to my heart. It’s called “Raise the Black.”

Raise the Black was set up to raise money for the fallen soldiers of the ICTF/ISOF, Iraqi Counter Terrorism Force/Iraqi Special Operation Forces. Why would you want to help a foreign military cause? Because we owe these men a great debt, and our government is too busy expanding welfare and investigating Al Franken’s perversions to step up.

I fought with the ICTF back in the Global War On Terror, and they are hard as nails. Without them, there wouldn’t be a nation of Iraq. Not only did they battle Al-Qaeda and the Shia militias into submission back in the early war, they pretty much single handedly stop ISIS from taking over the country. They paid a heavy price for that, but they did carry the day.

In any sane world, we would have airlifted these men and their families out of Iraq as soon as we decided we were done. Instead of 25,000 extremely sketchy Syrian “refugees,” we should have taken 1,000 vetted heroes that had already shown their commitment to the cause. But as usual, government policy is to abandon our allies as soon as they stop being convenient. We did the same thing to the Montagnards after Vietnam.

Anyway, the cause supported by Raise the Black is funds for the fallen members of ICTF. A correction to the video portion of today, the ICTF does have a martyrs fund. But it is tiny. It is not enough. If a man falls in combat over there, his widow and children are largely on their own.

I reference Raise the Black as a charity in the video. For clarity, Raise the Black is a project that works under the charity The World is My Country Foundation.

Raise the Black is listed as a for profit company that gives away a lot of money to support U.S. Special Forces partners throughout the world. I am comfortable sending my money to these men, I know the founders personally. Plus, I am guessing they set up Raise the Black this way because it is easier to run a for profit company than a 501.C3.  Fewer hoops to jump through.

Also, think about this next time you give money to a “nonprofit” organization. A nonprofit is allowed to have paid positions like a CEO. And just like any other CEO, the sky’s the limit as to what they can be make each year.

    Clay, I meant to say earlier… you need a haircut bro. You look like a Tudor pageboy with that mop. It’s not the hairstyle of a trained killer….

  • Jonny5 December 11, 2017, 6:07 pm

    Maybe the West should get into the habit of not going there in the first place and allow these countries the room to deal with their own issues. Oh wait… they’ve got oil.

  • Darrell December 8, 2017, 10:30 pm

    Clay you are the man

  • Smitty December 8, 2017, 9:28 pm

    Thanks for the info Clay. Glad to help out. Just bought 2 of the patches. Keep us informed about how this is working out.

  • William M Durham December 8, 2017, 11:15 am

    Maybe good cause but as long as there are Korean War, Vietnam War and Guld War Vets living on the streets I think we owe them first don’t you?

    Gotta say the wife did it for me too :). Donated though I’m sceptical of a for profit status and no stats on how much of each dollar really gets to these guys. Hopefully it goes to the right place and peeps.

    “global war on terror”, Clay? Or the ‘global war OF terror’, conscripted by the US and Israel?

    That ‘war’, Clay?

    Or just senseless death and destruction – for bankers.

    This won’t get printed. It’s for the staff at GunsAmerica. Go watch ‘All Wars Are Banker’s Wars’. Maybe you’ll get it and stop promoting this endless fraud. There’s 2 MILLION INNOCENTS DEAD, millions more displaced by everyone’s pretending it’s ‘real’.

      Occams,
      Is this really the place for your statement? Despite whatever “facts” you believe, the fact that these men have fallen for what they believe is DEFINATE, and that is what this is addressing.
      Thanks for bringing this to light Clay, I had no idea this was out there. DONATED!

    • Bryan December 8, 2017, 9:16 am

      2 patches bought. One for me and one for this Occams D-bag.

      hey dude, it’s time to take your prozac. I know the little men in your closet said the government is trying to control you with the pills, but it is not true. also, we did land on the moon and 9/11 wasn’t an inside job.

        I guess that General Smedley Darlington Butler was a paranoid “conspiracy theorist” too. Put down the Kool-Aid and pick up a book or two. Being a civilian now, you’re allowed to think for yourself and come to conclusions based upon actual facts and evidence.

        • Big John December 9, 2017, 7:10 am

          Don’t know about General Smedley Darlington Butler being a “conspiract theorist” but I do know in 1933 Smedley Butler became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to other Fascist regimes at that time. In my world we call that being a “traitor” Dewey, so get your facts straight before you start preaching your bullshit to people who’ve put their ass on the line to protect you and your moon bat buddy Occams right to be wise ass punks, and foolish paranoid assholes!

    • Dewey December 8, 2017, 10:34 am

      Occams,
      Good attempt but trying to convince the meatheads on the ground that they’re nothing more than tools used for profit is hopeless. If they were capable of critical thought, they wouldn’t be there or have signed up.

    • Michael Keim December 8, 2017, 12:15 pm

      Occam. You’re an ass.

    • elgavilansegoviano December 8, 2017, 8:27 pm

      No body said war is “pretty” or “necessary”,…. but to say US, Israel and the Bankers have created all wars,… you don’t no jack about History!!,….

    • Smitty December 8, 2017, 9:38 pm

      Occams,
      They printed your statement just so you could convict yourself of being a complete and utter Capital D Dipshit.
      FROM A PERSIAN GULF/ NAVY VET THAT DOSEN’T NEED YOUR DAMNED HELP.

  • Big John December 8, 2017, 5:19 am

    Looks like I’m not the only butt ugly “has been” that’s married to a great looking blonde (that’s way above my pay grade) …hats off to you my Brother, it must have something to do with sporting an electric butterknife all those years (cause it sure wasn’t our looks). On a serious note, thanks for the heads up for a good cause, count me in for a donation!

    • clay martin December 10, 2017, 10:47 am

  • Mrninjatoes December 7, 2017, 1:44 am
