On Post

During the storm the Old Guard refused to abandon their post at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We are lucky to have such men in the armed services.

Glenn Beck on Benghazi

While I rarely listen to Beck, this presentation I first saw on today is an eye opener. If the MSM fails to pick up the ball and run for it you can resign yourself to the fact that we really do no longer have an independent press and they are totaly in the tank for the leftest.

Admiral Lyons on Benghazi

Below is an op ed written by Admiral Lyons USN (Ret) Via the Washington Times for the whole article go to

This whole situation has reeked of Bull***t since day one. With what fact the Admiral brings up and other information that is dripping out, the entire Senior leadership, President, CIA, Secretary of State and DOD are all culpable and should be held directly accountable.
By God this is Watergate with a body count.

There is an urgent need for full disclosure of what has become the “Benghazi Betrayal and Cover-up.” The Obama national security team, including CIA, DNI and the Pentagon, apparently watched and listened to the assault on the U.S. consulate and cries for help but did nothing. If someone had described a fictional situation with a similar scenario and described our leadership ignoring the pleas for help, I would have said it was not realistic—not in my America – but I would have been proven wrong.
We now know why Ambassador Christopher Stevens had to be in Benghazi the night of 9/11 to meet a Turkish representative, even though he feared for his safety. According to various reports, one of Stevens’ main missions in Libya was to facilitate the transfer of much of Gadhafi’s military equipment, including the deadly SA-7 – portable SAMs – to Islamists and other al Qaeda-affiliated groups fighting the Assad Regime in Syria. In an excellent article, Aaron Klein states that Stevens routinely used our Benghazi consulate (mission) to coordinate the Turkish, Saudi Arabian and Qatari governments’ support for insurgencies throughout the Middle East. Further, according to Egyptian security sources, Stevens played a “central role in recruiting Islamic jihadists to fight the Assad Regime in Syria.”
In another excellent article, Clare Lopez at noted that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with our Benghazi mission. During the terrorist attack, the warehouses were probably looted. We do not know what was there and if it was being administrated by our two former Navy SEALs and the CIA operatives who were in Benghazi. Nonetheless, the equipment was going to hardline jihadis.
Once the attack commenced at 10:00 p.m. Libyan time (4:00 p.m. EST), we know the mission security staff immediately contacted Washington and our embassy in Tripoli. It now appears the White House, Pentagon, State Department, CIA, NDI, JCS and various other military commands monitored the entire battle in real time via frantic phone calls from our compound and video from an overhead drone. The cries for help and support went unanswered.
Our Benghazi mission personnel, including our two former Navy SEALs, fought for seven hours without any assistance other than help from our embassy in Tripoli, which launched within 30 minutes an aircraft carrying six Americans and 16 Libyan security guards. It is understood they were instrumental in helping 22 of our Benghazi mission personnel escape the attack.
Once the attack commenced, Stevens was taken to a “safe room” within the mission. It is not known whether his location was betrayed by the February 17 Martyrs Brigade, the local force providing security to the consulate, which had ties to the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist group conducting the attack, and to al Qaeda. Unbelievably, we still do not know how Ambassador Stevens died.
The Obama national security team, including CIA, DNI, State Department and the Pentagon, watched and listened to the assault but did nothing to answer repeated calls for assistance. It has been reported that President Obama met with Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in the Oval Office, presumably to see what support could be provided. After all, we had very credible military resources within striking distance. At our military base in Sigonella, Sicily, which is slightly over 400 miles from Benghazi, we had a fully equipped Special Forces unit with both transport and jet strike aircraft prepositioned. Certainly this was a force much more capable than the 22-man force from our embassy in Tripoli.
I know those Special Forces personnel were ready to leap at the opportunity. There is no doubt in my mind they would have wiped out the terrorists attackers. Also I have no doubt that Admiral William McRaven, Commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, would have had his local commander at Sigonella ready to launch; however, apparently he was countermanded—by whom? We need to know.
I also understand we had a C-130 gunship available, which would have quickly disposed of the terrorist attackers. This attack went on for seven hours. Our fighter jets could have been at our Benghazi mission within an hour. Our Special Forces out of Sigonella could have been there within a few hours. There is not any doubt that action on our part could have saved the lives of our two former Navy SEALs and possibly the ambassador

Food and hurricane Sandy

Living proof why everyone should have at least two weeks emergency food on hand and other supplies, flashlights, means to cook, water, sanitation ect, to make it when the lights go out.

This also shows what will happen in hours of any real crisis that limits or stops food delivery in a city of any size. We truly are nine meals away from anacrhy. Remember the goverment sucks in response of anytype in almost every case.

If you want some more information on what to do to prep fo and emergency see  Survival blog for planning information.

Raiders WIN!

Could it be we may have a good second half of the season? Raiders over the Chiefs 26-1.

Under the RADAR

Talk about under the radar last week, From the Sunday Times on the IAF attack on  Sudan rocket factory last Wednesday. Is it a dry rehearsal for the RA'AM's to attack Iran.

The attack occurred in the early morning of October 24, when eight Israeli F-15I jets – four of them carrying two one-ton bombs, escorted by four fighters – struck a gigantic Yamrouk missile site. The evidence is that this strike is a general rehearsal before the Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.According to western defense sources, the 2,400-mile return flight took the Israelis four hours, with the jets flying south along the Red Sea. The planes entered the Sudanese air space from the east to avoid Egypt’s missile defenses.The anti-Iranian operation kicked off two years ago when Mossad agents murdered a Palestinian businessman and a HAMAS highflyer, Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh, in a Dubai hotel suit, retrieving a suitcase with a military agreement between Iran and Sudan, wherein Khartoum offered Tehran its military sites to make weapons.The Yamrouk facility produced Shahab ballistic missiles, which were then to be delivered to HAMAS rebels in the Gaza strip and other Middle Eastern regions.

Earn your Trident every day…

Not knowing exactly what was taking place, the two SEALs set up a defensive perimeter. Unfortunately Ambassador Stevens was already gravely injured, and Foreign Service officer, Sean Smith, was dead. However, due to their quick action and suppressive fire, twenty administrative personnel in the embassy were able to escape to safety. Eventually, these two courageous men were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers brought against them, an enemy force numbering between 100 to 200 attackers which came in two waves. But the stunning part of the story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.

As it became apparent to these selfless heroes, they were definitely going to lose their lives unless some reinforcements showed up in a hurry. As we know now, that was not to be. I’m fairly certain they knew they were going to die in this gun fight, but not before they took a whole lot of bad guys with them


So no one at the White House, CIA or DOD ordered a stand down, sounds like Bull***t to me. Since we do know that the CIA's former SEALS were in contact with their superiors something is rotten with the whole story. The fools in this administration are dying of a thousand cuts as the information drips out. After all its not the action its the cover up. Maybe someone will get the truth out next week so we can be done with these people. One thing for sure it won't be the MSM since they are carrying the water for this administration.

Having made half a dozen parachute jumps I can appreciate the skill it took to make this record shattering jump. All I want to know is how did the spacesuit designers manage to fit Felix's brass balls into the suit?


I have to admit I watch the MSM news mostly for laughs now. I've seen in my lifetime the news deteriorate to a point were it is nothing more than a propaganda wing for the DNC and the left. What amazes me is if you look through history you can not find any examples of where a  centrally planned socialist goverment has worked anywhere. You can see a lot of suffering and death but no success.
I'm convinced that the left in this country think it will work here because they are all so smart and that is why socialism has failed everywhere else, because they were not in charge.
There really is not a dimes bit of difference between the RNC and DNC esxpect for the fact the the R/R team is aware that increased spending with no action will lead to chaos. Time will tell
Here is a beautiful shot of the MSLSD crowd when there white lighter failed during the first debate.
