Vietnam vet pilot to be awarded Medal of Honor 50 years after he braved enemy machine gun fire to rescue 40 trapped soldiers in his badly damaged Huey

498_logo_thumbDateline June 24, 2016: As I post this column today – I am sitting looking over the Pacific Ocean just north of Morro Bay, California – looking in the direction of a country where Leonard Kizirian, Raymond Schacht and myself – served together some forty-eight years ago as a part of the 498th Med-Evac (Dust Off) Unit. Tomorrow will conclude one of many annual reunions which the three of us have spent together.

It is with this in mind that I choose to post this timely column – honoring one of our many brothers. Welcome home to all of our comrades ~ J.B.

How American Politics Went Insane

It happened gradually — and until the U.S. figures out how to treat the problem, it will only get worse…

unca scamIt’s 2020, four years from now. The campaign is under way to succeed the president, who is retiring after a single wretched term. Voters are angrier than ever—at politicians, at compromisers, at the establishment. Congress and the White House seem incapable of working together on anything, even when their interests align. With lawmaking at a standstill, the president’s use of executive orders and regulatory discretion has reached a level that Congress views as dictatorial—not that Congress can do anything about it, except file lawsuits that the divided Supreme Court, its three vacancies unfilled, has been unable to resolve.

On Capitol Hill, Speaker Paul Ryan resigned after proving unable to pass a budget, or much else. The House burned through two more speakers and one “acting” speaker, a job invented following four speakerless months…  Continue reading

Banning “Assault Weapons” Will Not Save Lives

ross_guns-1Last weekend, America regrettably witnessed one of the deadliest mass shootings in the country’s history at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in which 49 people were murdered and over 50 injured. The atrocity was carried out by a fanatic who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, using a civilian semi-automatic rifle, the Sig Sauer MCX. (Early reports that it was an AR-15 were mistaken.)

In the wake of this attack, many people have laid the blame on America’s relatively lax gun laws, arguing that so-called “assault weapons” (more appropriately known as semi-automatic rifles) and high-capacity magazines should be banned from civilian use. Continue reading

Gone Fishin’…

“Up a lazy river in the noon day sun…”

girls_fishing_in_bikinis_23

I guess that I was long overdue – far more than I realized. Sitting out on the deck of a house just north of Morro Bay, California. The surf is pounding onto the beach – which is better than the pounding in my head that has been going on for too long.

Will I post this week? I don’t know. Right now – I don’t really care. On the 28th of June – I will remember 21 years of broadcasting. For what have I continued to do this? What has changed? What has improved in the United states and around the world? What have we lost? What have we gained?

Change? Not much for the good – if anything.

Improvement? Nothing that I have found to be acceptable.

Gained? Tens of millions of illegal invaders and mixed bathrooms for all to share.

It is no more for me to answer. It’s up to you.

In the words of Barry Manilow, “What am I doing here…?”

For the moment – I am not.

Oh – and my “fishing partner” above?… only in my dreams.

Without Apology I am,

Ross: You Should Be Grateful

ROSS_cvr_v1_webHave you ever met someone that caused you to wonder what goes on inside their head? I have; in fact I wonder about it all the time. However in most cases I think that were I to find out it would drive me insane. If what comes out of most people’s mouths is any indication of what goes on inside their heads, then what passes for logic for them is most likely convoluted and irrational.

Everybody has an opinion on things and in a perfect world those opinions would be based upon critical thought; an examination of all the facts leading to a well thought out conclusion. But as my dad used to always say, “Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink.” That is especially true when one’s opinions are not based upon fact, but upon emotional responses to things; there is usually no logic involved in the forming of them.

Gaddy: Intolerant Of The Willfully Ignorant

“The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everyone has decided not to see.” ~ Ayn Rand

gaddy_mask“A formal attack on ignorance is bound to fail because the masses are always ready to defend their most precious possession—their ignorance.” ~ Hendrick Willem von Loon

I am tolerant of the people who believe differently than I do as long as they don’t insist I abandon my beliefs, my heritage or respect for my forefathers in order to better tolerate their views and beliefs. What I am growing increasingly intolerant of are those who willfully choose to be ignorant and demand I honor their ignorance by ignoring the documented facts of history.

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” ~ Aristotle

Stumped: DHS’ Jeh Johnson Can’t Name Gun Law that Could’ve Stopped Mateen

eys of grannyI find this so very telling of the mind set of those who sit in rule over us. Their solution to *gun* violence is to take the guns from those who can protect themselves and others and give to those who are intent on killing us. Create GUN FREE – Shooting gallery – zones so the real killers will know that they won’t have any opposition from the victims. That is how the OCCUPATION FORCE thinks – how it plans to *make us SAFER* – remove any opportunity to protect ourselves. A gun in the hands of the protectors is a thousand times better than a cop on the phone. Continue reading

Why Brexit Is Such a Threat to the New World Order

NWO-WelcomeIf you think that a referendum vote on June 23 by UK citizens on whether to withdraw from the European Union (called Brexit, short for British Exit), is simply a proxy on whether the UK should dislodge itself from the edicts of Brussels, think again. It’s morphed into a much broader debate on whether citizens worldwide should surrender their right to a participatory democracy in order to further the interests of multinational corporations, secret trade agreements packed with secret court tribunals, global banking hegemony and central banks attempting to keep all these balls in the air for their one percent overlords.

Howard Stern Defends Gun Ownership after Orlando Attack

“Do You Want a Fighting Chance or Not?”

howard sternRadio host Howard Stern blasted politicians’ and activists’ gun control push in the wake of the terrorist attack in Orlando during an episode of his program this week, pointing out that more gun control will only make attacking innocent people an easier task.

“Do you want a fighting chance or not?” Stern asked during Wednesday’s episode of his popular SiriusXM radio show. He appealed to the metaphor of “sheep,” “sheep dogs,” and “wolves” ­ as set forth in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper explaining that the “sheep” represent the majority of the people, while “sheep dogs” are “the military and police,” and the “wolves” are those that prey upon the “sheep.” Continue reading

Hodges: ISIS to Launch a Tet Offensive Against 50 American Cities

However, I am experiencing this very thing at this very moment.

One caveat, do not expect aid and protection from this administration. Continue reading

Obama’s tantrum a striking display of failed leadership

obama03If it is true that the best defense is a good offense, President Obama should be celebrating in the end zone now. Obviously furious over criticism that his anti-terror policies are weak and that the Orlando slaughter proves it, he went on a televised tirade to let America know he’s mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

NOTE: The following video is complete in Bathroom Barry’s comments regarding the mass “shooting” in Orlando last weekend – BUT – his personal attack begins at about 13:00 minutes. ~ J.B.

He laid waste to a field of straw men, cable-TV pundits and the always-evil “partisan rhetoric,” by which he means anyone who disagrees with him. It was a striking display of personal anger and pent-up grievances — and a total failure of leadership during a national crisis. Continue reading

DHS Orders Whistleblower To Scrub Records of Muslim Linked Terror

dhsAmid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Twenty-three-year old Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be arrested. The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United States failed, that time. Continue reading

Was Orlando Shooting A False Flag?

Shooter Has Ties To FBI, Regular At Club, Did Not Act Alone?

~ Forewords ~
juntii_thumbAfter the initial blast to my mind I thought — this is another Bathroom Barry INC move to grab our guns before he moves down the street to another tax funded residence. It would also beef up his BATHROOM AGENDA by gaining *sympathy* for that *community* that God classifies as being an ABOMINATION. And, it would increase the call for more SURVEILLANCE by the OCCUPATION FORCE to control American citizens rather than keeping out the Trojan Horse innards that Bathroom Barry keeps bringing in to America. Bathroom Barry is trying so very hard to leave a LEG-ASSEE that he will do whatever it takes to do so.

(1) grab guns from private citizens while the real enemy within is protected by armed security guards.

(2) Gain sympathy for the Sodomite/Lesbian/Transgender Abominations.

(3) more *security* in the guise of being *safer* (police state to control the general public)

(4) turn attitudes around on the Muslim/Islam issues – making Christians the bad guys and the Muslims the peace lovers.

(5) open the border wider and set out more *goodies* to the invaders to consume at our expense.

(6) and just maybe – issue a Bathroom Barry mandate for Martial Law keeping his illegal ass in the oval office.

dhs-dojAs mainstream media organizations continue to be afire with reports regarding the recent Orlando shooting, a number of details are escaping the public consciousness that might point to an even more sinister motivation for the killing of 50 innocent people at the Pulse nightclub. Most notably, that the attack could very well have been orchestrated by the FBI and other relevant U.S. intelligence agencies in order to guide public opinion, galvanize the American people, and for other “political” purposes.

Alexander: Allahu Akbar Orlando — Analysis of the Absurd

BO Gets It Wrong, Again

“We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die. … Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble actions. ~ George Washington (1776)

BO gun problemHistorically, the worst in America brings out the best in America. Whether the catastrophic Islamist 9/11 attack 15 years ago, or the devastating Islamist attack in Orlando last weekend, killing 49 civilians and leaving many others in critical condition, first responders, friends and neighbors, and most Americans nationwide, are quick to rally in support of victims and their families. This unity in moments of great tragedy speaks volumes about the combined character of our nation.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about most leftist demagogues and many of their loyal constituents. When a political machine depends on a generationally tried and true “divide and conquer” strategy — one that foments discontent and division based on income, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, education, occupation and the like — in order to achieve its political objectives, predictably their politics of disunity will emerge before the blood on the walls has dried.

EMP & ELF – Sound Wave Weapons

~ Forewords ~

In times past I have written about the EMP (Electronic Magnetic Pulse) and it seems it is time to post out the warning on this WEAPON that you can’t see but it can kill you.

Just like the High Intensity/Low Frequency (ELF) sound waves that I had to deal with when I was at my former apartment and the neighbors who thought playing that music with that BOOM BOOM BASE was really cool in spite of my telling them what it was causing my heart to do.

You can’t see sound waves but they are WEAPONS and can be Weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION. Check this at Omnisonic.com

Here’s why Trump’s foreign policy terrifies neocons

~ Forewords ~
Some remarkable foresight some might agree and just too fanciful others might think, is this informative analysis. Perhaps it’s a mixture of both, given the many unknowns regarding Trump. But as it concerns H. Clinton, the Ambassador is on the mark about her neo-Con character and about her lack of profound knowledge and wisdom on foreign policy when she was Secretary of State and her continuing lack of vision on the reality of matters in our present, which would lead to more catastrophe were she to become President. ~ Angie C.

“Clinton is just another neocon, though wrapped in sheep’s clothing ­ just as on some foreign policy issues Trump is little more than Bernie Sanders in wolf’s clothing.”

GOP_2016_Trump

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump outlined his stance on foreign policy on April 27. He said his strategy involves the use of diplomacy and “new people” outside the foreign policy establishment.

Most of my former colleagues at the State Department will be appalled by the assertion, but much of the media-fed angst about Donald Trump’s dearth of foreign policy expertise is contrived. Continue reading

Gaddy: A Completely Criminal Enterprise

Gaddy_FinalNutsAmerica’s largest criminal enterprise, one which operates with the consent and cooperation of millions is best known as our government. This criminal enterprise owns the so-called justice system because those entrusted with dispensing justice depend on the criminal element for appointments and income. Yet, there are still people who believe this element within our government will somehow turn on those from whom it gains power and sustenance. These are the people who believe Hillary Clinton will be indicted and perhaps convicted of a crime.

Missing from the thought process of those with such beliefs is to understand that to indict and convict Hillary would be an indictment and conviction of the operations of the government itself. Continue reading

Philosophy of the New World Order

the_new_world_order_-_by_h-_g-_wellsThe phrase, New World Order, just does not seem comprehensive enough to explain the circumstances that mankind is living under. The German expression, “weltanschauung” referred to as a philosophical view or apprehension of the universe is often used to ponder the human condition. Individual beliefs and understanding of the very nature of mankind was once seen in the convention of the Greek school of thought reflected in the teaching of Plato and Aristotle. Western Civilization essentially is based upon these principles and the cosmology of our heritage is involved and inseparable with an understanding of our spiritual dimension. Continue reading

Ross: Absolutes

justiceHEADLINE: SAN FRANCISCO The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a law stating citizens must prove a ‘good cause’ before they will be issued a concealed weapons permit. Writing for the majority, Circuit Judge William Fletcher wrote, “We hold that the Second Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public…”

Well there you have it; a group of black robed tyrants has all but gutted the 2nd Amendment’s protection of the right to carry. Certainly this will be appealed, possibly being heard by the Supreme Court itself; but that is beside the point as the Court should have no say in this…none whatsoever. Continue reading

Ewart: Little by Little the Progressives Whittle

ron ewartJust about everyone is born with sight, but when they grow up, very few gain vision. Vision is the capability to take all that you know and project what might happen in the future, then base your actions on that prediction.  Often times, the more you know the greater the possibility of an accurate prediction.

Vision comes from reviewing the past, analyzing the present and using that knowledge to forecast the future.  Even with all this knowledge, forecasting the future, just like predicting the weather or global warming, can be very difficult and sometimes borders on flipping a coin.  Still, many try, but many more are wrong.  They are wrong because the system they are trying to predict is a non-linear dynamic system and any small tweaking can produce huge differences in direction.  Even small changes in one or more variables can render a prediction instantly irrelevant. Continue reading
