May Their Memory Be A Blessing

The Israelis know how to do this correctly.

On the Israeli Memorial Day at 11 AM a siren is sounded for two minutes and the entire country comes to a halt.

People stop whatever they are doing; cars stop on highways and the vehicles empty out for two minutes of silence to honor the fallen.

I remember back when Decoration Day as my mother referred to it was always on May 30, and not conveniently placed on the last Monday in May to create a three day weekend inaugurating summer.

There was always a parade with drum and bugle corps, bands, twirlers, close order drill teams and veterans, marching from city hall to the church, where there was a cemetery  for veterans of the Civil War, and the ceremonies were capped with speeches and a lone bugle sounding taps.

When I was in the high school band I got to be in the parade in my blue uniform with its epaulets, piping, and silver buttons, that would be the envy of any Fifth Avenue doorman.

It was a time when the day was celebrated  in towns across the country this way and not running to buy up bedding or furniture at cut rate sale prices.

It all seemed to come crashing down around eleventh grade when a substantial number of band mates refused to participate because honoring the dead in their minds glorified war and they couldn’t support anything harmful to Vietnamese children or water buffaloes.

Suffice it to say there weren’t enough of us to field a team and I was back to observer status.

In spite of all of that, it was still a time when the rights of felons and communists did not garner precedent over We The People.

So this weekend in the midst of flipping burgers or stuffing another set of towels into the shopping cart, stop for one lousy stinking minute, and remain silent for those who died, and most likely died horribly, defending our nation.

Jesus may have died for your past sins but the American serviceman and woman continue to die for you to be able to keep sinning.

Happy Memorial Day

Marine Mess

I was invited for lunch over the weekend where one of the guests, a nephew of my host, was a leatherneck Lance Corporal.

He finished basic training and his specialty training, called MOS (military occupational specialty) and will be going overseas  soon. Or as the military calls it — OCONUS — Outside the Continental United States.

His description of what he had to go through and how so many recruits are eliminated was mind boggling.

God bless him.

God bless the USMC

God bless America.

Semper Fi motherfuckers.

A little bit of history behind Angel Flights:

Angel Flights are the U.S. Air Force C-130 airplanes used to fly home our fallen soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen. Angel Flight is their radio/aircraft call sign. In addition, Angel Flights have top (number one) priority in U.S. airspace over other military flights — as you heard the towers say “number 1 for landing/takeoff.”

The term “heroes” is another term frequently used in the video in reference to our fallen warriors.

Now, how important are black ghetto thugs when compared to these heroes?

They aren’t important at all. They just steal the thunder from our brave, selfless fighting men and women for their own crybaby gripes.

So fuck each and every one of them, especially Trayvon “Hoodie” Martin, Michael “I was too stupid to live” Brown, Al Charlatan, Jesse Jackass, Louis FarrakhanWolcott and especially the Black Panty cowards.

From the New York Post

When John Kennedy addressed West Point’s Class of 1962, he told them the burden of defending freedom “will require more from you than ever before in our history.”

WestPointThe nature of war had changed, said the young president, but this only increased America’s need for military officers of character, judgment and ability.

How different from Barack Obama’s adolescent address Wednesday. Here the long gray line was reduced to a backdrop for a president shouting to the world: I’m not the weakling you think!

His critics, he said, have no policy beyond invading other countries. This accusation was a petulant allusion to his predecessor. And he repeated it several times:

“A strategy that involves invading every country that harbors terrorist networks is ­naïve and unsustainable.”

“[Not] every problem has a military ­solution.”

“[My critics] think military intervention is the only way for America to avoid looking weak.”

The truth is: No one says any such thing.

No one argued for US troops in Syria; the argument was for arming democrats fighting Bashar al-Assad to keep al Qaeda from taking the lead.

No one argued for boots on the ground in Ukraine, either, though critics are pushing for missile defense for our East European allies. And no one is looking to invade Iran, much as people do worry Tehran is using talks to buy time to develop its nukes.

On Wednesday, our commander-in-chief stood before some of America’s most selfless men and women. It was an opportunity to inspire these young West Pointers with a speech about national security — and their vital role in a dangerous world.

Instead he opted for a campaign speech once again contrasting his own brilliance with a childish caricature of his critics.

Many of America’s wars are listed below. These serve to make a point which you’ll likely understand as you read on. 

Ironically, most of these wars were initiated by liberal politicians via their pie-in-the-sky utopian schemes, although they would have you believe the conservatives are the culprits—this is simply not true.

World's #1 Drone Target.

It’s a no brainer. The majority of the wars listed above pale in comparison to a badly needed War on lawless traitor Obama and his equally lawless administration. What I want to know is when does the War on Islamofascist Obama and his libtard administration begin?

And what the fuck is up with all the Congressional grab-assing going on with nobody really being held to account, disgraced, fired, impeached, tarred and feathered, and/or tossed in Club Fed for violating our constitutional rights?

I want some answers and am willing to trim some political pubic hairs with an extremely dull, extremely gnarley, extremely loud, turbo-boosted chainsaw in order to get some goddamn answers, metaphorically speaking, of course.

The Big Story—the Global War—Goes Mostly Unreported

by Michael Leeden

The “news” is resolutely out of context.  A subject about which virtually nothing is known–the mystery of the missing airplane–gets saturation “coverage,” while events of potentially earth-shaking importance are largely unreported. Twitter is full of tweets, photos and videos from the streets of Venezuela, but the Maduro tyranny expelled CNN, and Wolf Blitzer crams his airtime with heads talking about the Malaysian passenger jet.  Any self-respecting “news network” would relentlessly run stories about the ongoing demonstrations from Caracas to Maracaibo–demonstrations surely the equal of those from Maidan Square in Kiev–but no.

assad.blood.bath

The Venezuelan uprising may turn out to be the biggest story of all, because it is part of a world-wide battle that pits anti-Western tyrannies against their own people, and against their neighbors.  It is of a piece with Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran and Russia itself, where, just a few days ago, fifty thousand Muscovites demonstrated against Putin’s imperialist moves in Ukraine. 

I’ve been saying for years that we’re the target of a global war, that the Pyongyang-Beijing-Moscow-Tehran-Damascus-Havana-Caracas etc Axis of Evil is hell-bent to dominate and destroy us.  Now the evidence is so clear that only a willfully blind man could fail to see it.  When the pundits were saying that Assad’s doom was imminent, I warned that he had the full support of Russia and Iran, and they would not go quietly.  He didn’t, but the pundits are still trying to unscrew the inscrutable jihadi networks and alliances, invoking the tired chant of Sunni vs Shi’ite, and refusing to see the battle of Syria in the context of the real war.

Today, the repression of the Venezuelan people is under the command of Cubans and aided by Hezbollahis, which is part of the same picture that has Russian troops-in-mufti operating in Ukraine, Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah killers operating in Syria, Iranian-guided terrorists fighting in Yemen, Iranian-trained Taliban killing Afghans and Americans, and on and on.  That picture has been clarified by the announcement that Russia is opening naval bases in Latin America.

IS AMERICA HEADED FOR A SECOND CIVIL WAR OR REVOLUTION?

If the hateful divide between the left and right continues to widen, and if the vitriol continues to fly like tracers in a midnight firefight, then another civil war or revolution could be a logical outcome.

Is the government really attempting to usurp the Constitution as far as they must in order to place American citizens firmly under their control, or UN control?

Of course they are.

Why wouldn’t they? It’s not like those who oppose this outcome are really doing anything to prevent it. We’ve been turned into so many sheep. Instead of We The People, we’re now We The Sheeple. Why? Because we went to sleep on guard duty and shirked our duty to keep our politicians on OUR course, not theirs.

To borrow phrases: I was a soldier once… and young, but old soldiers never die. I continue to be prepared and loyal, and will remain at the ready until my final breath.

However this trend plays out, those of you out there who would rise up against our government’s tyranny might crystallize your mindsets by reading and remembering the dialogue below.

As Shakespeare’s protagonist King Henry V put it:

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o’erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call’d fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’

From Godfather Politics:

Even More Warning Signs: Obama Poised for Hostile Military Takeover of U.S. – Part 2

Read Part 1 here.

A week ago, I laid out a list of things President Obama has put in place to set the nation up for his hostile military takeover.

After my first post about Obama’s hostile military takeover, I received an  email from a reader that offered an explanation to my pondering of why NOAA  (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) would also be ordering millions of rounds of ammunition and assault rifles. He offered the idea that it is an ironic twist to Obama’s relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers.

Ayers was a wanted domestic terrorist back in the 1960s and 1970s. Ayers was a co-founder of the terrorist group known as the Weather Underground. Now, Obama is using NOAA, a federal weather agency to  stockpile weapons and ammunition for his terrorist assault on the American  people.

Today, I would like to add a few more items to that list that makes the case for his hostile military takeover even more compelling.

It has now been confirmed that the goal of the Department of Homeland Security is to purchase a total of 1.6  billion rounds of ammunition. A portion of that ammunition is hollow point bullets, which have been banned from use in war by international law. Another portion is specialized sniper ammunition.

In case you have a difficult time comprehending the significance of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, allow me to give you a couple of  comparisons.  During the height of the war in Iraq, the US  Army fired less than 6 million rounds per month. That means DHS has  enough ammunition to supply the US Army for 266.67 months (22.22 years) of  intense war.

Currently, the DHS uses approximately 15  million rounds of ammunition every year at their various training  facilities. At that rate, they have enough ammunition for 106.67 years of training.

So ask yourself, what is the justification for the purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security, especially when some of it is illegal to use in war?  Now ask yourself why Sen. Dianne Feinstein is so concerned about private citizens stockpiling ammunition, weapons and using high capacity magazines when the federal government is doing the same time only a thousand times more?

Perhaps the abundance of ammunition goes along with the purchase of ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ MaxxPro MRAP vehicles that are scheduled to be deployed on the streets of America. The number of vehicles they are purchasing has not been released, but they are part of the 2,717 that have been recently retrofitted by the manufacturer. The DHS appears to be taking delivery of  the armored vehicles through the Marine Corps Systems Command located in Quantico, Virginia.

The scary part of the DHS acquiring MRAP vehicles is that they have been already been spotted in a number of cities throughout the country. DHS cannot deny their existence since a number of them have been photographed and videoed by citizen observers. Why would DHS need so many, assuming they are purchasing over a thousand, MRAP vehicles deployed throughout the US, unless they are preparing for a war of some kind. Now add to that question the  fact that the MRAP vehicles are equipped with gun ports.

There can be no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama is preparing for the bloodiest war in American history and it’s going to take place here on American soil.  When?  It has to be prior to the 2016 election, unless he  manages to force a constitutional amendment allowing himself to run for a third term. However, I truly don’t think the amendment will be necessary, because he plans to forcibly take control of the country prior to the election. Everything points to the conclusion that this is all in  preparation for a hostile military takeover.
