She was someone's Daughter

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services


Ashli was someone's daughter.

A daughter that I would have been proud of had she been mine. I’m sure thousands of images of Ashli go through her mom and dad’s heads just like the images I carry in my head of my son and daughter. Fortunately for me there are new memories being made every day. Not so for Ashli’s parents and family, murder has a way of putting an end to new memories being made.


I can find very little about Ashli on the internet because the internet is very hostile towards her. Some things we can merely deduce from the information available such as Ashley served 14 years in the United States Air Force thus we can assume that she loved this country and was dedicated to serving it (you and I). 


Although the United States Air Force has allowed women to serve in the same capacity as men since 1976 women are still a small minority making Ashley a pioneer for women in the USAF. Ashli was deployed 8 times (more than most men and women in the USAF) where she was described as being in a "mentoring position to the younger and newer airmen”.


Ashli was a successful Entrepreneur, again making her a minority leader and especially an inspiring leader to young women.


I have no doubt that many of Ashli’s teachers, as well as many of her students, have wonderful stories to tell about Ashli but the press has not sought them out. Even worse they have suppressed those stories because the press hates this past defender of our country and proven women’s rights leader. 


Why has Ashli been demonized?


 If you have not figured it out yet it’s because she, like many, felt that the election of 2020 was stolen and that Joe Biden took the office of Presidency via voter fraud. Ashli’s sin was trespassing & breaking and entering (which was certainly true). Did those actions warrant assassination by a nameless coward hiding in the shadows? I think not. 


I want you to think about who has been demonized here and who has been totally ignored. The coward/assassin who lurked in the shadows and shot an unarmed woman as she was a quarter of the way threw a narrow glass window has been portrayed as a hero (a hero whom they refuse to identify). A woman who honorably served her country (you and I) for 14 years, a successful woman Entrepreneur, someone aside from her political views would normally be held in  high esteem by women's groups and most other Americans, has been portrayed as an evil villain. 


The assassin who lurked in the shadows and murdered an unarmed woman is considered a hero by the press for his kill.


I don’t care what side of the political fence you are on, murder is murder. When a cop kills a known violent felon with an outstanding warrant and while resisting arrest there is looting and rioting in the streets for days or even weeks. The press seeks out anyone who will speak well of the dead even if he/she has a record of violence as long as your arm. However have you seen a single (positive) word spoken by the press on Ashli’s behalf? Have you seen rioters and looters out there because Ashli’s life mattered?


To me Ashli’s life DID matter! It mattered to me because I am a human being. Ashli’s life mattered to me because I hold Biblical values that relay that to God ALL human life matters. Hopefully Ashli’s life mattered to you as it did to thousands of Americans who value what is right and what is moral.


If you have not seen one of the videos of Ashli’s assassination here is one. 

Note that heavily armed men were RIGHT THERE! This supposed “insurrection” was not about to go anywhere. If the real authorities felt there was a true danger they would have stopped the intruders. They did not need the help of an unnamed coward assassin.

I too had heard about that shooting this morning Brian. I heard the boy was armed BUT a split second after he laid the gun down he was shot. I'm sure we will learn more through out the day.

It is very sad indeed Nina. The press could not dig up any real "dirt" on her so they ignore her accomplishments and only play up this one action.

Good morning Bob. If the press can say negative things about a shooter, he/she is a villain without a thought of right or wrong. If people did not commit crimes and resist arrest they would be alive. And to think it is not political, is short sighted thinking. Enjoy your day.

So true Grant, yet have we seen anything in the press about her family greiving? I see today (as I have in the past) the press interviewing family members of those killed by the police who were making justified arrests. There was nothing justified in Ashli's assassination.

That is how I feel as well Ron and Alexandra. It has bothered me from the day it has happened till now so I just had to speak up for Ashli and this injustice.

Wayne, don't you long for the days when news was reported instead of opinion being doled out as news? I sure do. I don't understand why so many "news" sources which to walk in lockstep with each other even when they know that what they are reporting is obviously a lie. You would think someone would want to stand out as a beacon of truth.

Hello Bob and the court found the person with no charges,  that is so wrong.  I have to wonder about the system sometimes.

The "system" leaves me shaking my head every day Will. Even the local courts. I read the reports daily in our local newspaper and I can't believe how habitual drug dealers get a slap on the wrist every time. Even when a overdose death is reported the drug dealer seldom gets more than a year in prison. The system is definately broken.

Hello Bob - I read your post earlier today and let it "be" in my mind for a while.  I was thinking - should I "let it go" or comment.  

Yes, Ashli Babbit served our country.  Quite frankly, she should have known "better".  What do you say about those who defended the capitol and were harmed or worse "killed".   Were they not children at one time - maybe spouses - loved ones - parents - citizens trying to do their job?

Yes she should have known better Michael, I agree. The press has admitted that the one capitol guard who died died from a heart attack... not from these unarmed protesters. As seen in the video there were heavily armed capitol police officers standing right among the protesters that Ashli was a part of. They had automatic weapons. They could have stopped this (and should have) before the assassin murdered Ashli. He could have taken the advice Joe B. gave yesterday on national news that officers should shoot bad guys in the leg instead of killing them.

For what ever happened that day and the fault is tossed around so much, the killing of anyone that is unarmed is a heinous crime and the fault should be placed where it  belongs.

I agree Ed. The assassin had many options he could have used without resorting to killing an unarmed woman crawling through a window.

I think we are on the same page James. I put a link to this on FB and Twitter and I've been wondering if they would pull it.

Hi Bob- I am in agreement with what you said. and as James Dray said...don"t get me started. And I do not agree that "she should have known better" Is that what was said to the looters last summer?

I really appreciate what you have said. She was doing what she believed whould help make a difference. I wish it wouldn't have been her final statement.

Hello Bob - I am back and have read the reports that the Capitol Police officer Sidenick did not die as a result of injuries from the attack on January 6 but from other causes as you stated in your response to my comment.  Any additiional comments from me shall remain unsaid in this thread.

Dear Bob,

I have personally known too many people, who were killed by gunfire. Any ejit can buy them & there is no training or instruction provided. If you point your finger as a kid and go "bang, bang!" your friends get back up and you laugh about it. When you use live ammunition, they stay down and are dead forever. I wish, there was something like a driver's license for gun operators. If you know, what you are doing and handle a deadly weapon with respect, you earn the right to use it for the intended purpose, which is not shooting other humans. It should be renewable with a vision test, just like a driver's license. Have you seen the video of the good samaritan, who pulled out his weapon to go after gas station robbers and almost mowed down 4 customers? We definitely have too many gun dead in this country.
