Obama True to Form

More bullshit from the White House on gun control. Did anyone think Obama would miss a chance? Here are some of the text from his Telemundo interview.

This is Phil Rucker of the Washington Post

President Obama called on Congress on Tuesday to revisit gun control legislation, saying in the wake of Monday's deadly mass shooting at the Washington  Navy Yard that lawmakers should take what he considers "basic actions" to toughen the nation's gun laws.

In an interview with the Spanish-language television network Telemundo, Obama said the country's background check system for gun buyers is so weak it makes the United States vulnerable to mass shootings, such as the one last December that killed 26 small children at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn."You know, I do get concerned that this becomes a ritual that we go through every three, four months, where we have these horrific mass shootings," Obama said in the interview. "Everybody expresses understandable horror. We all embrace the families — and obviously our thoughts and prayers are with those families right now as they're absorbing this incredible loss. And yet we're not willing to take some basic actions."

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting propelled gun safety to the top of Obama's second-term legislative agenda, but Senate Republicans as well as some Democrats in April blocked a proposal to expand background checks.

"You have a majority of the American people and even a large percentage of Republicans who are ready to move the country forward, and yet we keep on getting blocked," Obama said. "It's a challenge that I'm speaking out on, but ultimately we're also gonna meet pressure from the public to see if we can change how they do business up there."

More lies and bullshit from the  Obama, who is the large percentage?  I hate to be cruel but the Washington Navy Yard count was like many weekend in Chi-Town as the gang bangers fight for drug territory. But do you here a peep from the MSM? No of course you don't.

One again for the sheep to understand , Gun control the way the leftist look at it is a road to confiscation pure and simple. There ultimate goal is to disarm Americans so we can all be subservient to the government

Please remember 5 points including one of our founder Ben Franklin s quote..

1. Disarmament is a prelude to genocide!
2. Free men own guns, slaves don't!
3. Be your own first responder!
4. The experts (Obummer, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Hitler) all agree, gun control works!
5. “Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who kept their swords.” -Benjamin Franklin

Stay safe out there and pray for the country.

Washington Navy Yard

Well the ghouls of the left including Fienstien did not even wait tell the bodies were cold before their siren cry for gun control started to echo through the  land. While the shooting is a tragedy and I will not go into the debate of gun free zones, all I want to know is why the left politicians and talking heads never talk about the psychotropic drugs that almost to the person these mass murderers are on.

Could it be that these politician who are bought and paid for by big Pharma and the fascist politicians like Fienstien and her ilk are more interested in power and control by disarming law abiding citizens but never doing a damn thing about criminals or the drug companies.
.
Stand vigilant, these are trying times for all off us. Issues ranging from Syria, the NSA spying and the economic train wreck brought about by these fools in D.C will test our will. The government over the next 12 months will be desperate to increase their reach and power while at the same time try to placate the sheep.

Ship Of Fools, Pic Of The Day

Check out this pic from the White House. With these idots in the room you know we are truly screwed.


Still Think It's Sarin?

For the folks out there who want to believe this was a nerve agent attack below is the CDC's guidelines for PPE and Decon. I'll post a link for the whole thing.
As a retired GI I have extensive training in operating in an NBC environment. What you see on the realsed tapes indicate to me that this was no way a nerve agent attack. Two things that stand out are the lack off PPE by the hospital staff and the fact the the patients are still clothed indicating no decontamination prior to transport.Chlorine or similair agents aI can believe but nerve agent, I don't think so.
 So now you have to wonder what is the hidden agenda by this administration and the helpfull idot RINO Neocons, only time will tell.

Call your local representative and tell them to vote no on Syria.

Personal Protective Equipment

  • GENERAL INFORMATION: First Responders should use a NIOSH-certified Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) with a Level A protective suit when entering an area with an unknown contaminant or when entering an area where the concentration of the contaminant is unknown. Level A protection should be used until monitoring results confirm the contaminant and the concentration of the contaminant.
    NOTE: Safe use of protective clothing and equipment requires specific skills developed through training and experience.
  • LEVEL A: (RED ZONE): Select when the greatest level of skin, respiratory, and eye protection is required. This is the maximum protection for workers in danger of exposure to unknown chemical hazards or levels above the IDLH or greater than the AEGL-2.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN full-face-piece SCBA operated in a pressure-demand mode or a pressure-demand supplied air hose respirator with an auxiliary escape bottle.
    • A Totally-Encapsulating Chemical Protective (TECP) suit that provides protection against CBRN agents.
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (outer).
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (inner).
    • Chemical-resistant boots with a steel toe and shank.
    • Coveralls, long underwear, and a hard hat worn under the TECP suit are optional items.
  • LEVEL B: (RED ZONE): Select when the highest level of respiratory protection is necessary but a lesser level of skin protection is required. This is the minimum protection for workers in danger of exposure to unknown chemical hazards or levels above the IDLH or greater than AEGL-2. It differs from Level A in that it incorporates a non-encapsulating, splash-protective, chemical-resistant splash suit that provides Level A protection against liquids but is not airtight.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN full-face-piece SCBA operated in a pressure-demand mode or a pressure-demand supplied air hose respirator with an auxiliary escape bottle.
    • A hooded chemical-resistant suit that provides protection against CBRN agents.
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (outer).
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (inner).
    • Chemical-resistant boots with a steel toe and shank.
    • Coveralls, long underwear, a hard hat worn under the chemical-resistant suit, and chemical-resistant disposable boot-covers worn over the chemical-resistant suit are optional items.
  • LEVEL C: (YELLOW ZONE): Select when the contaminant and concentration of the contaminant are known and the respiratory protection criteria factors for using Air Purifying Respirators (APR) or Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are met. This level is appropriate when decontaminating patient/victims.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN tight-fitting APR with a canister-type gas mask or CBRN PAPR for air levels greater than AEGL-2.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN PAPR with a loose-fitting face-piece, hood, or helmet and a filter or a combination organic vapor, acid gas, and particulate cartridge/filter combination or a continuous flow respirator for air levels greater than AEGL-1.
    • A hooded chemical-resistant suit that provides protection against CBRN agents.
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (outer).
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (inner).
    • Chemical-resistant boots with a steel toe and shank.
    • Escape mask, face shield, coveralls, long underwear, a hard hat worn under the chemical-resistant suit, and chemical-resistant disposable boot-covers worn over the chemical-resistant suit are optional items.
  • LEVEL D: (GREEN ZONE): Select when the contaminant and concentration of the contaminant are known and the concentration is below the appropriate occupational exposure limit or less than AEGL-1 for the stated duration times.
    • Limited to coveralls or other work clothes, boots, and gloves


    Decontamination

  • INTRODUCTION: The purpose of decontamination is to make an individual and/or their equipment safe by physically removing toxic substances quickly and effectively. Care should be taken during decontamination, because absorbed agent can be released from clothing and skin as a gas. Your Incident Commander will provide you with decontaminants specific for the agent released or the agent believed to have been released.
  • DECONTAMINATION CORRIDOR: The following are recommendations to protect the first responders from the release area:
    • Position the decontamination corridor upwind and uphill of the hot zone.
    • The warm zone should include two decontamination corridors. One decontamination corridor is used to enter the warm zone and the other for exiting the warm zone into the cold zone. The decontamination zone for exiting should be upwind and uphill from the zone used to enter.
    • Decontamination area workers should wear appropriate PPE. See the PPE section of this card for detailed information.
    • A solution of detergent and water (which should have a pH value of at least 8 but should not exceed a pH value of 10.5) should be available for use in decontamination procedures. Soft brushes should be available to remove contamination from the PPE.
    • Labeled, durable 6-mil polyethylene bags should be available for disposal of contaminated PPE.
  • INDIVIDUAL DECONTAMINATION: The following methods can be used to decontaminate an individual:
    • Decontamination of First Responder:
      • Begin washing PPE of the first responder using soap and water solution and a soft brush. Always move in a downward motion (from head to toe). Make sure to get into all areas, especially folds in the clothing. Wash and rinse (using cold or warm water) until the contaminant is thoroughly removed.
      • Remove PPE by rolling downward (from head to toe) and avoid pulling PPE off over the head. Remove the SCBA after other PPE has been removed.
      • Place all PPE in labeled durable 6-mil polyethylene bags.
    • Decontamination of Patient/Victim:
      • Remove the patient/victim from the contaminated area and into the decontamination corridor.
      • Remove all clothing (at least down to their undergarments) and place the clothing in a labeled durable 6-mil polyethylene bag.
      • Thoroughly wash and rinse (using cold or warm water) the contaminated skin of the patient/victim using a soap and water solution. Be careful not to break the patient/victim’s skin during the decontamination process, and cover all open wounds.
      • Cover the patient/victim to prevent shock and loss of body heat.
      • Move the patient/victim to an area where emergency medical treatment can be provided.

Turkish Intercept

It starting to get real in the Med. One miscalcualtion by either the idiots in D.C or by the Syrians or thier allies and the fuse to WWIII may be lit. Idiots all!


British Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets nearly clashed with Turkish Air Force F-16s over Cyprus According to the Cyprus-based Famagusta Gazette, the RAF Typhoons based at Akrotiri, Cyprus, to provide the air defense of the island following the Syrian crisis, nearly battled with Turkish jets in a close encounter on Sept. 2. It looks like Turkey scrambled two F-16 fighter jets from Incirlik airbase, to intercept the British Typhoons that had allegedly violated the airspace over the occupied part of Cyprus. According to the details collected by the Cypriot media outlet, the UK Ministry of Defence and Cyprus Defence Minister confirmed the incident, however it’s not clear whether the British planes scrambled to intercept the Turkish fighters “after radars detected suspicious flights in the area of the occupied city of Famagusta,” or viceversa. In fact, after explaining that the RAF Typhoons were launched to investigate the suspicious activity, the article goes on reporting that “it is understood the Turkish jets took off from Incirlik air base in Turkey, in order to intercept the British planes,” and that “the British planes had returned to Akrotiri by time the Turkish jets arrived in northern Cyprus airspace.” The dispute over the Turkish occupied northern part of Cyprus is reflected by active

Delta's Honor Guard

 I had a link forwarded to me shot on the ramp at Atlanta. These fine Delta Airlines employee's honor fallen GI's as they are en route to their families. Words cannot express the emotion I felt while watching this video. As a retired SNCO  I'm overwelmed by the respect shown by these volunteers as these fallen GI's come home.
You like I my not agree with the way this and the previous useless administration have prosecuted wars that should have been won hands down. But in the end GI's are dying for us and should be respected.

My hats off to  Delta and these fine volunteers.

Thought for America

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

Middle Class Going Away?

A little pitch video off of Zero Hedge. The takeaway is startling when they talk about the debt. These guys are ar least optimists in the future and have a few good ideas. My gut tells me that I hope they are right but I think we will all suffer as the markets contract. Hopefully it won't be doomsday prepper, Mad Max kind of world. One more thing it;s not just America, we are the cleanist dirty shirt. Europe and Japan will tank before us.

PIC Of The Day

I only worked on Eagles during my career but there is something special about a BUFF, they are simply incredible aircraft. During my fisrt hitch a Mather AFB CA I was a firefighter and enjoyed watching the B-52G's from the 320th BW fly every day. This is back in the early 80's when SAC still stood 24 hour 365 day alert.



First Flight Of A QF-16




The first flight of a QF-16 took place a few days ago at Cecil Field in FL. The QF-16 will eventually replce the QF-4 Phantoms at Tyndall AFB FL starting in the spring of next year.

Do You Need Strength For Combat?

Of course you need physical and mental strength for combat. What I don’t understand is why shills like Army Colonel Ellen Haring of the Army War College can get away with her totally asinine statements like she did recently in the Armed Forces Journal “Perhaps it is time to take a hard look at what really makes a competent combat soldier and not rely on traditional notions of masculine brawn that celebrate strength over other qualities,” Col. [Ellen] Haring says in the current issue of Armed Forces Journal. She cites World War II hero Audie Murphy and North Vietnamese insurgents as examples of small people who came up big on the battlefield. “If the going-in assumption is that physical standards are the only thing that needs to be examined, then we are also assuming that we have everything else just right,” she wrote. “This is belied by our less-than-optimal performances in many instances during the past 12 years. Fixating on physical standards is a tactical-level approach that misses a strategic-level opportunity.” Now my own personal experience in the military and as a firefighter/EMT I can tell you physical strength standards do matter as do many other qualification standards. Good will and political correctness do not get the ruck humped twenty miles or the hose taken up to the roof. Anybody who say different are in an imaginary world and have a political axe to grind A good example of physical strength needed on the battlefield is what Sergeant Clifford M. Wooldridge, USMC accomplished according to his Navy Cross citation; The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Corporal Clifford M. Wooldridge, United States Marine Corps, for extraordinary heroism while serving as Vehicle Commander, Combined Anti-Armor Platoon White, Weapons Company, Third Battalion, Seventh Marines, Regimental Combat Team 2, FIRST Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) Afghanistan, on 18 June 2010 in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. When their mounted patrol came under intense enemy fire, Corporal Wooldridge and his squad dismounted and maneuvered on the suspected enemy location. Spotting a group of fifteen enemy fighters preparing an ambush, Corporal Wooldridge led one of his fire teams across open ground to flank the enemy, killing or wounding at least eight and forcing the rest to scatter. As he held security alone to cover his fire team's withdrawal, he heard voices from behind an adjacent wall. Boldly rushing around the corner, he came face-to-face with two enemy fighters at close range, killing both of them with his M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon. As he crouched back behind the wall to reload, he saw the barrel of an enemy machine gun appear from around the wall. Without hesitation, he dropped his empty weapon and seized the machine gun barrel. He overwhelmed the enemy fighter in hand-to-hand combat, killing him with several blows to the head with the enemy's own machine gun. His audacious and fearless actions thwarted the enemy attack on his platoon. By his bold and decisive leadership, undaunted courage under fire, and total dedication to duty, Corporal Wooldridge reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.

 I wonder how much good will was used as he beat the enemy to death with his own machine gun?

A-10 To The Rescue

Here is an article on a recent action by a pair of A-10s from the 74th FS. If there is anyone out there that still thinks an F-35 can replicate this type of action all I can say is they have no clue about close air support. BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan (AFNS) -- Two A-10 Thunderbolt II pilots assigned to the 74th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, provided close-air support to 60 U.S. Soldiers July 24. The Soldiers were part of a routine clearance patrol that was ambushed after their lead vehicle in a convoy of 12 turned over during a patrol of an Afghanistan highway. The situation forced the Soldiers to establish an overnight base while they pulled the vehicle out of a ravine. As the sun rose, the unit began to receive heavy fire from a nearby tree line. The members were pinned behind their vehicles and three of the Soldiers suffered injuries. The unit was under fire and the wounded members needed a casualty evacuation so they called for close-air support. However, there was one problem; the ground unit didn't have a way to confirm the enemy's position. The unit did have a joint fire observer who was able to communicate an estimated location to the A-10 pilots who arrived on scene shortly after receiving the call from a local base's joint terminal air controller responsible for coordinating aerial engagements. "I flew over to provide a show of force while my wingman was looking for gunfire below," said the flight lead of the two-ship A-10 mission. "Our goal with the show of force was to break the contact and let the enemy know we were there, but they didn't stop. I think that day the enemy knew they were going to die, so they pushed even harder and began moving closer to our ground forces." When the enemy combatants didn't flee after the show of force, the A-10 pilots decided to deliver air-to-surface munitions to protect the friendly ground forces. "Even with all our (top-of-the-line) tools today, we still rely on visual references," said the lead pilot, who is on his first deployment from Moody Air Force Base, Ga. "Once we received general location of the enemy's position, I rolled in as lead aircraft and fired two rockets to mark the area with smoke. Then my wingman rolled in to shoot the enemy with his 30 millimeter rounds." According to the pilots, that really stirred up the attacking force. The enemy moved even closer to the friendlies in an attempt to prevent the A-10 from attacking again. The ground forces were now taking on a large amount of fire from the trees and surrounding high terrain. "We just kept putting down more 30 mm rounds," said the second A-10 pilot, also deployed from Moody AFB. "The bad guys were closing in and according to the muzzle flashes there were a lot of them, but because people were shooting all over the place, the JTAC didn't feel safe bringing in helicopters in to evacuate the wounded personnel." The pilots said usually after the first or second pass, the enemy runs away, but this enemy force was large and willing to fight. The pilots continued to fire 30 mm rounds, but the enemy force refused to fall back. Now, the enemy force was close enough to engage the unit with grenades, so the convoy's commander approved the pilots to engage "danger-close." The term is meant to clearly communicate to the ground and air forces that the need for support is so grave the ground commander is willing to accept the potential risk to the friendly unit for the life-saving employment from the air. "We train for this, but shooting danger-close is uncomfortable, because now the friendlies are at risk," the second A-10 pilot said. "We came in for a low-angle strafe, 75 feet above the enemy's position and used the 30-mm gun -- 50 meters parallel to ground forces -- ensuring our fire was accurate so we didn't hurt the friendlies. The engagement lasted two hours that day, and in that time, the A-10s completed 15 gun passes, fired nearly all their 2,300, 30-mm rounds, and dropped three 500-pound bombs on the enemy force. "That last gun runs must have made them give up," the two pilots agreed "because the firing stopped." Shortly after the engagement was complete, an MC-12 aircraft specializing in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance arrived and began scanning the area for enemy forces that might be regrouping. Sometimes when close-air support leaves, enemy forces will attack again, so the A-10s remained on-station until all the Soldiers were safe. "We wanted to make sure the area was safe because we had the pararescuemen from the 83rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron coming to transport the injured to Bagram's hospital," said the second pilot. "The flight doctor assigned to our squadron treated the wounded in the emergency room. It was an example of a successful mission with contributions from all assets of our base." After the pilots landed and debriefed, they went to the hospital to see the wounded Soldier. "He was laying there and next to him was a picture of his high-school girlfriend," the lead pilot said. "We were glad knowing we helped get him home alive. He said, 'Thank you for shooting those bad guys'. Luckily we were only a few minutes away and all the friendlies made it out that day." Providing close-air support is the squadron's main mission here, and is the specialty of the aircraft they fly, the A-10 Thunderbolt II nicknamed the "Warthog." "This was one of the most intense sorties our squadron has come into contact with in the last four months in theater," the lead pilot said. "Afterward the Afghan National Army said they found 18 enemy dead, so I can only imagine how many were out there. This was close-air support and this is what we train for."

Wisconsin DNR, Another Example Of Big Brother Gone Wrong

After being out of the loop for a few weeks and taking a vacation I decided to get back to it and what do I find right off the bat, more insane tactics by government agents The Wisconsin DNR sowed again how bad big brother government is getting. They raided a no kill shelter with many armed agents after preforming both aerial and covert surveillance. The alleged crime was keeping a fawn that ran afoul of Wisconsin DNR regulations. I can't believe how bad big brother is getting, I realize that this is a minor incident but how much taxpayer money went into this effort and all they ended up doing was killing the fawn and holding the shelter volunteers under detention for from what I gather 3 hours. Here is a link to the WISN ABC 12 article, it includes pictures of the terrorist fawn that the DNR agents saved us from. http://www.wisn.com/news/armed-agents-raid-animal-shelter-for-baby-deer/-/9373668/21272108/-/wvh1n7z/-/index.html

Charlie Rangel, Jerk Of The Week

Charlie Rangel (D) NY proves once again that he is a buffoon. In comment with the Daily Beast he compared Tea Party members to old Sothern racists. Here are the money quotes from the article “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked," "It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break,” said Rangel. I guess Charlie forgot that all these folks that did these acts were from his on Democrat party in the 50’s and the 60’s. But what do expect from a party who had a KKK Grand Kleagle as one of their respected leaders for years, Senator Robert KKK Byrd (D) WV

Air Force Pararescuman Awarded Silver Star

After all the crap in the media that is the 24 hour news cycle from Jody Arias to Zimmerman here is a story that recieved no media attention at all.

Thank you SSgt Kline for the job you did.

According to the award citation, Kline was a part of a rescue team tasked to recover two U.S. Army pilots from an OH-58D Kiowa that had gone down. While on the ground, Kline fought enemy fire while coordinating with aircraft by radio to target threats located behind his position. During the engagement, an incoming round ignited fuel within the wreckage, which then erupted in flames. He continued to push through enemy fire to an alternate site while still guiding overhead aircraft to adversarial positions by radio.

Arab Spring II?

Well maybe the Egyptian people are not very impressed with the heavy handed approach of Morsi and his Muslin Brotherhood. With the armies backing hopefully Morsi and his ilk will be tossed to the dustbin of history.

Here are some pictures of the protests including one dedicated to our fundamentalist loving chief executive and the U.S. Ambassador. The administration posturing two years ago and lack of a cohesive policy have given rise to the disasters that we saw in Benghazi and what has transpired in Egypt. All the more reason to keep out of any of the conflict in Syria.




















Last Luftwaffe F-4F Phantom flight

Saturday marked the end of service for the F-4F Phantom in German Luftwaffe service. The Phantom which entered service in 1973 was originally only to be in service only 15 years Saturday marking their 40th year of flying.

The F-4 are still flying in the Air Forces of Korea, Japan, Greece, and Turkey. Not bad for an aircraft that was designed in the 50's and went into service with the USN in Dec 1960. The total number of Phantoms built was 5,195 a total that will never be equaled by another military aircraft.

Common Sense in West Virginia

A West Virginia judge has dismissed the obstruction charge against a 14 year old who wore an NRA shirt to school. This cased popped up last month and many people were amazed by the stupidity of the school and the local cops.  Common sense prevailed Friday when the judge signed the order.

This case is just another symptom of why are society is in deep trouble.



CHARLESTON, W.Va.


A criminal charge has been dismissed against a West Virginia middle school student who refused a teacher's order to remove a National Rifle Association T-shirt he wore to school.

Logan County Circuit Judge Eric O'Briant signed an order dismissing an obstruction charge Thursday against 14-year-old Jared Marcum stemming from an April 18 incident at Logan Middle School.


Marcum was charged after a police officer told him to stop talking, but the student didn't.

TWA 800 New News

For years have thought that the official NTSB explanation of the loss of TWA 800 off the New York coast was caused by a fuel tank explosion was not correct. My service career in the Air Force as an avionics technician made me very familiar with the working of and aircrafts fuel quantity system. This coupled with my background as a firefighter I know how difficult it can be to ignite Jet-A especially in an enclosed container like a fuel cell.


The other thing that has always bothered me about the incident was the fact that there were many eye witness’s that claimed they saw a streak of light come up off the water then the explosion of the aircraft. One of these eye witnesses was a USAF Reserve MH-60 Pave Hawk crew. I believe these guys if anyone would recognize the launch signature of a Man Portable Air Defense Missile. Along this theme, after the investigation Aviation Week published some infrared pictures of a flying 747 showing the various heat sources. Most people would automatically assume that the hottest source would be the engine exhaust. The reality is it the air conditioning pack that resides in the center fuselage right below the fuel tank that the NTSB tells us was the explosion source.

A MANPAD will home on the hottest source so if it turns out to have been a shoot down by a MANPAD there will be yet another scandal involving the U.S. government and their lack of transparency.

There should be no surprise if it turns out to have been a MANPAD attack, there have been many shot s taken at commercial jets some of which were shot down. One of the more recent hits was the cargo aircraft that got hit in in 2003 at Baghdad; you can search for the pictures on line, these guys were fortunate to get this plane back on the ground.

Time will tell on this one.

Here is some of the breaking news and a link:

http://www.foxnews.mobi/quickPage.html?page=22995&content=94179930&pageNum=-1

A group of whistle-blowers, including a number of aviation experts, have come forward in a new documentary to claim that the official explanation for the crash of TWA Flight 800 was wrong and a gas tank explosion did not bring down the flight off the coast of Long Island 17 years ago.

However, the six whistle-blowers, all part of the original investigation team, stopped short of saying the plane was shot down.

Flight 800, a Boeing 747, had just taken off from JFK airport with 230 people aboard on July 17, 1996, en route to Paris when it exploded and crashed off the coast of nearby East Moriches, Long Island, killing everyone on the plane.

"..This team of investigators who actually handled the wreckage and victims' bodies, prove that the officially proposed fuel-air explosion did not cause the crash," reads a statement by the producers of the film, which will debut on cable network EPIX next month. "They also provide radar and forensic evidence proving that one or more ordnance explosions outside the aircraft caused the crash." However, the statement said they did not speculate about the source or sources of any ordnance explosions.

One of my daily financial reads Karl Denninger's Market-Ticker went to  Tickercon 1 today. so what is it?

•1: Locked-and-cocked. Preparations should be complete. Evidence exists suggesting that a financial, geopolitical or similar event is likely within the next several weeks. Wide-spread economic, geopolitical or social distress has a reasonable probability (better than one in five) of occurring during the above time period. This status will not be maintained for more than thirty days as extraordinary vigilance is required to do so.

This is a result in the overnights of the Nikkei 225 6.5% collapse overnight. I've said for months that to anyone that would listen that the Federal Reserve and the thieves on Wall Street would blow this economy up. The results are starting to be seen, you simply cannot just print money out of thin air and expect success.

Everyone needs to educate themselves on what is going on short term with stocks and bonds and the the Feds printing. Any credit or financial disruption will affect not only someones 401K or other investments but the everyday functioning of society such as food, gas and general credit.

Look at Greece and think of the riots in your hometown.

Tear Down This Wall

26 years ago this week Presedent Regan made this speech at the Brandenburg gate in Berlin, I was getting ready to move to Soesterberg AB, Netherlands at the time. Who would have known that a mere 29 moths later the wall came down.

"Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"




Here is a clip of the speech

D-DAy, 6 June 1944

Today is the anniversary of the greatest assault from the sea that the world has ever seen. Soldiers from the combined Allied forces stormed ashore or were parachuted behind the lines at Normandy, France beginning the task of pushing the Nazi’s back into Germany. My hat’s is off to these brave men in the first waves that faced unbelievable fire coming from the Germans dug in positions to gain a foothold on the beach.


Courage doesn’t mean you’re not scared.

Dr Jim Garrow, The Litmus test

Dr. Garrow has made some interesting claims according to different web sites about what is going on with the build up of ammunition by DHS and a litmus test for military officers about use of force against American civilians, I had no idea that he had done an interview and went on record publically. Below is the interview he did in March.




Now before anyone just discount this as tin foil hat stuff, my own son in law and his platoon were asked similar type questions a few years ago while he served as a grunt in D company 2nd LAR in the USMC. The nice thing was the reaction of these common grunts from Sgt. to Private, they were as a whole shocked and concerned about even being asked these questions. The common though was senior leaders at battalion and division may take the orders to suppress U.S. citizens, these are the perfumed prince types that are more worried about advancement than doing their moral and ethical duty. But down at the company and platoon level this is where the boots meet the ground any orders like this would be refused and I personally feel some units would in fact mutiny and stand up to any unconstitutional orders. Contrary to popular belief enlisted men do think and they know what they stand for, they are by no means automatons like the left likes to portray them as.

Economic Problems, Get Ready

I have to admit I'm now amused everyday as I watch Wall Street. Monday was a good example everything printed negative and the info released last week by the Chicago Fed was shown to be inaccurate. But how do the markets react? They went up today on the feeling that helicopter Ben will continue to print 85 million a month out of thin air.


I don't know exactly how this will end or how bad it will get. But sometime soon we will all pay the piper to unwind this debt. The signs are there in Japan and in Europe but no one will honestly report what is going on. Kind of like the ongoing antigovernment riots in Turkey, Oh that’s right no U.S. media outlets have given one minutes coverage to that.

Like I've said before be ready, have food, cash on hand, water and precious metals (junk silver) if you can to ride out any shortage’s that may occur.

I agree with Kyle Bass who firm is long on America, we have the natural resources and the people to pull through any bad times but don't for a minute think it will be easy or that the B..S stats out odd D.C. are in any way accurate on inflation, growth, unemployment or GDP.



Here is a good article from Zero Hedge that put things into perspective

B-52 MITO

Ten Buffs from Minot AFB practicing a (MITO) minimum interval take off. This was bread and butter exercise during the cold war SAC days. This was to give the alert crews practice getting off as fast as they could after the horn blew. We had a resident SAC bombardment wing and associated tankers at my first duty station Mather AFB CA. This type of flying happened regularly, once the alert force launched during a Global Shield exercise about 2 AM one morning. Needless to say for the first few minutes no one knew it was an exercise and the alert force was gone climbing north over downtown Sacramento. They must have vibrated folks out of the beds in the neighborhoods that night.

Benghazi Cover Up

Dan Pfeiffer another lying scum bag Obama aid refuses to answer Chris Wallace's questions on Sunday in regards to the Presidents actions and whereabouts during the attack.

This White House has a lot to answer for and they refuse to step up and tell the truth, whatever they are hiding I guarantee is much worse than the four dead Americans which is bad enough.

Funny thing is I'm old enough to remember the Watergate and the flip flopping that Nixon and his aides did. This is a carbon copy repeat but with four body bags to show for it. If the press wasn't so far in the bag for this guy they would be like sharks in the water in search of a Pulitzer.

Below is the video.

Dam Busters

This week the RAF commemorative flight recreated the raids on the Ruhr Dams that occured seventy years ago by preforming flypasts  on Derwent Dam in Derbyshire, The Battle of Britain’s last Lancaster, from the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, make three runs over the Derwent Dam.

These raids were used to cut the power to the industrial heart of the Third Reich. The daring flights were made by 617 Squadron flying Lancaster's that dropped a specially designed bomb that skipped on the water and settled to the base of the dam after contact before going off. Out of 19 aircraft that were dispatched on the mission, 8 were lost and a total of 53 of the 153 airmen were killed. The mission resulted in both primary dam trgets being breached.




Here is a video taken from the flight

Last A-10 Sortie In USAFE

Tuesday marked the last operational sortie of A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft in Europe. The three ship sortie was flown by the 81st FS out of Spangdahlem AB Germany and was flown over Fulda. The old cold warriors out there will remember this is why the A-10 was built and deployed to USAFE, to defend against a Warsaw Pact armoured thrust through the Fulda Gap.

Initial deployment of the A-10 to USAFE was in 1979 to the 81st FW at the twin base's at RAF Bentwaters and Woodbridge in the U.K. The A-10 would eventually equip six squadrons and operated not only in England but also from  four forward operating locations  Sembach, Leipheim, Alhorn and Norvenich Air Bases in West Germany.

The last remaining A-10's will depart Germany on Friday bound for Moody AFB, GA ending 34 years of A-10 operation in USAFE.

Judge Jeanine on Benghazi

Judge Jeanine goes a great job in analysis of the Benghazi debacle. She cuts right to the core in her eleven minute piece.

 I sincerely hope that the House and Senate gets off their dead butts and does a proper job uncovering the facts behind this mess.
The liars are plentiful, Obama, Rice, Clinton, Panetta all are culpable for this disaster and dead Americans and they should be held accountable for their actions. The media should be ashamed of themselves, they are all such shills for the Obama administration they allow what appears to be a political move and cover up 6 weeks before an election to stand in the way of sending in a rescue team.
This good be the beginning of the end for this sorry administration.

Benghazi, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) at Todays hearing

Testimony you will not see on the worthless MSM. Rep Gowdy did a great job and hats off to Mr Hicks for stepping forward, Bottom line Americans died at the hands of a jihadist attack. A Special Forces 4 man team including a medic was ordered to stand down in Tripoli instead of boarding a Lybian C-120. God only knows what other assets were recalled that might have been en route. Tyrone Woods and his partner thought they had TACAIR available, nothing else can explain why they were lasing the motor crews.

I've said for months that this situation is rotten and it goes all the way to the top. This incident is much worse than Watergate because we have four dead Americans. The media and this administration must be held accountable for this lack of leadership in the administration and the lack of oversight by a lap dog liberal media.

Jim Rogers and Ron Paul

These two guys get it economically, heed their warning.
Go long on food, silver and lead for the troubling times ahead.

Money quotes.

“They won’t take our bank accounts…they will take our retirement accounts.” - Jim Rogers

"We are going to have a calamity in economics and political crises as economies worldwide are a lot weaker than they tell us." - Ron Paul

"I would expect that there is going to be a lot more chaos still to come." - Ron Paul

"There are so many distortions because we disobeyed economic law - no matter what Bernanke tell's you." - Ron Paul

"Bernanke's whole intellectual career has been dedicated to the study of printing money." - Jim Rogers





"I don't doubt [the confiscation] at all; and they will use force and they'll use intimidation." - Ron Paul



George Mason Founding Father

George Mason back in 1788 described our current worthless Senate members in one of his famous quotes. I wonder how he knew:)?

"Those gentlemen, who will be elected senators, will fix themselves in the federal town, and become citizens of that town more than of your state." --George Mason, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

Trijicon Bible Verses

For years Trijicon optical sights have been marked with references to Bible verses. The last time this was an issue was in Jan 2010 when ABC breathlessly reported this and tried to make a big deal.

Well big Army strikes again and has sent out detailed instruction on how to remove the mark and and repaint the scope. It pains me to think that anyone would think this was an issue. If they do, they really don't understand fundamentally what our Founding Fathers were all about

Here is an example of the offending mark.




Some of the other passages are;

John 8:12 - "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Second Corinthians 4:6 - "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."


A bunch of B.S. but the liberals and Obama's minions eat this kind of stuff up. Anything to divert attention from a failed administration.

Mike Vanderboegh's Speech Over The Weekend In CT

I will post his speech with no comment, none is needed.

My name is Mike Vanderboegh and I'm a smuggler. I am from the great free state of Alabama and I am a Three Percenter.


If you need to pigeonhole my politics I consider myself a Christian libertarian. I believe in free men, free markets, the rule of law under the Founder's Republic and that the Constitution extends to everyone regardless of race, creed, color or religion.

I most especially believe in the right of the people to keep and bear arms as the ultimate guarantor of liberty.

I have also been called a "seditionist" by members of the current regime. If faithfully fulfilling my oath to the Founders' Republic and unrelenting hostility to those who would undermine and overthrow it makes me a "seditionist" then I cheerfully plead guilty.

The Three Percent movement I founded has been denounced by that paragon of moral virtue Bill Clinton and I am a perennial "honorable mention" on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of dangerous folks. I have even been the subject of an eighteen and a half minute rant by Rachel Madcow on MSNBC and the current Attorney General of the United States knows -- and despises -- me by name because of the Fast and Furious scandal that, with my friend David Codrea, I broke the news of on the Internet. Eric Holder would not be surprised to know that the feeling is mutual.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence calls me an "insurrectionist" because I don't believe, as they do, in a government monopoly of violence, but rather in a literal interpretation of the 2nd Amendment as a bulwark against tyranny. Well, as my friend Kurt Hofmann says, "It is better to be despised by the despicable than admired by the admirable" and I suppose my remarks here today will only reinforce my enemies' opinions of me. I think I can bear the burden.

Yesterday was the anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775, but also of the liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto in 1943 and that of the Branch Davidians at Waco fifty years later to the day -- two examples of what happens when governments exercise a monopoly of violence.

It is proper, then, to contemplate the lessons of the date in history -- April 19th -- then, now and in the near future. What I say now I say with reluctance, sadness and not a little bit of dread, but say it I must.

FOR SILENCE IN THE FACE OF TYRANNY IMPLIES CONSENT -- AND I DO NOT CONSENT!

Neither do I believe that you consent, for you would not be here today if you did. But what I say is not easy to say nor easy to hear and many of you will not like it.

"An unconstitutional law is void." So says the standard legal text American Jurisprudence. That is certainly true. The tricky part is how we are to make that point when the local, state and federal executive and legislative branches as well as the courts are in the hands of the domestic enemies of the Constitution. Every one who is currently trying to take away your right to arms starts out by saying "I support the 2nd Amendment." Let me tell you a home truth from Alabama -- Barack Obama supports the 2nd Amendment about as much as Adolf Hitler appreciated Jewish culture, or Joe Stalin believed in individual liberty. Believe what politicians do, not what they say.

So what shall we do about this current spate of tyranny breaking out all over?

The facsimile of a semi-automatic pistol that some of you hold in your hands was smuggled into your state from the South. Manufactured in Georgia, trans-shipped to Alabama, it came across your state line in the trunk of a car. The fact that the authorities of your state have not yet banned "sponge guns" is immaterial. It could as easily been a whole trunk full of real pistols. Indeed, before this year no one thought that other firearms and related items would ever be banned -- but they have been. No one thought that the authorities of your state would pass laws making criminals out of the previously law-abiding -- but they did. If they catch you violating their unconstitutional laws, they will -- when they please -- send armed men to work their will upon you. And people -- innocent of any crime save the one these tyrants created -- will die resisting them.

Yet despite the cost, these unconstitutional laws MUST be resisted. For if not now, when? And if not us, who? This is no longer a "slippery slope" leading to firearm registration and eventual confiscation -- it is a precipice that some states have already plunged over and that the federal government threatens to follow. Arrests are happening NOW. When, if not now, shall we resist? Will we allow ourselves to be shoved back once again, from the free exercise of our God-given, natural and inalienable rights to liberty? -- Shoved back once more, muttering but compliant?

THAT IS HOW WE GOT TO THIS PLACE --- WE NEVER SHOVED BACK WHEN WE COULD DO SO WITHOUT VIOLENCE. Where does it stop? When we are all disarmed slaves?

The Founders knew how to answer such tyranny. When Captain John Parker -- one of the three percent of American colonists who actively took the field against the King during the Revolution -- mustered his Minutemen on Lexington Green, it was in a demonstration of ARMED civil disobedience. He might have retreated at the British approach, but he didn't. He might have ordered his men to lay down their arms, but he didn't. His defiance was silent but plainly stated. A veteran of the French and Indian War, he did not want a war. He knew intimately the horrors of war. BUT HE ALSO KNEW THAT SOME THINGS ARE WORSE THAN WAR. The British could not tolerate his silent defiance -- and someone fired a shot.

But even before the shot heard 'round the world, the colonists understood their weaknesses and their military needs and did something about it. They smuggled. They smuggled Dutch gunpowder and French flints. They smuggled tents and uniform cloth and artillery and ammunition. Boston was the high headquarters of anti-British smuggling and John Hancock was its prime minister. Connecticut was a small empire built on patriotic smuggling. The colonists knew what to do and they did it, regardless of the risk -- regardless of all the King's ministers and the King's soldiery.

They defied the King. They resisted his edicts. They evaded his laws and they smuggled. Lord above, did they smuggle.

Now we find ourselves in a similar situation. The new King Barack and his minions have determined to disarm us. We must determine to resist them.

No one wants a new civil war (except, apparently, the anti-constitional tyrants who passed these laws and the media toadies who cheer them on) but one is staring us in the face. Yes, a civil war is staring us in the face. To think otherwise is to whistle past the graveyard of our own history. We must, if we wish to avoid armed conflict, get this message across to the collectivists who have declared their appetites for our liberty, our property and our lives --

WHEN DEMOCRACY TURNS TO TYRANNY, THE ARMED CITIZEN STILL GETS TO VOTE.

Just like King George, such people will not care, nor modify their behavior, by what you say, no matter how loudly or in what numbers you say it. They will only pay attention to what you DO.

So defy them. Resist their laws. Evade them. Smuggle in what they command you not to have. Only by our ACTS will they be impressed. Then, if they mean to have a civil war, they will at least have been informed of the unintended consequences of their tyrannical actions. Again I say --

Defy. Resist. Evade. Smuggle. If you wish to stay free and to pass down that freedom to your children's children you can do no less than to become the lawbreakers that they have unconstitutionally made of you. Accept that fact. Embrace it. And resolve to be the very best, most successful lawbreakers you can be.

One last thing before I go. On Thursday I smuggled a half-dozen 30 round AR-15 standard capacity magazines into Connecticut in deliberate disobedience of the new state diktat.

So to Martin Looney, Mike Williams, Larry Cafarro and John McKinney I'd like to say this:

I JUST COMMITTED A "D" CLASS FELONY, YOU TYRANNICAL MORONS -- PROVE IT -- WHICH YOU CAN'T -- AND CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.

And I'll tell you something else. When the new ammo restrictions go into effect the first week of July, I'll be back -- with two full crates of 7.62x39 ball ammunition and I will transfer said ammunition into the hands of a Connecticut citizen without the state's permission or paperwork.

And after I break their unconstitutional laws again, I'll be sitting in Frank Pepe's Pizza down in New Haven waiting for Looney and Company to come arrest me --

ANY TIME THEY THINK THEY CAN MAKE IT STICK AND FEEL FROGGY ENOUGH TO TRY.

Thank you.

Boston Aftermath

It's good to see that the second Boston suspect is in custody. what's bad is how they did it. The government officials in Massachusetts shut down a city of 7 million and had the citizens cowering in their homes with an untold economic loss. There is no excuse for these actions and the way the police went door to door demanding entrance and the sheep complied. Other terrorist groups will watch this charade and realizes the disrution that they can cause with having just a few fanatics execute an attack.

Carl Denninger does a much better job than I can ever do at Market Ticker check it  out.

http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=219949#discuss


Obama's And Boston's Lesson: Jihad Works
 
The stupid, it burns.
The wrong answer to terrorism is what we're doing right now.  
What our government is teaching prospective terrorists is that all they have to do is manage to get two jackasses who are willing to die to commit mass-murder, even if they kind of suck at it (let's face it, when they blew up those bombs in Boston they did commit their intended deed but an hour earlier and 10x as many people would be dead or missing legs.) 
Then they pop a cop trying to rip off a convenience store and toss (non-working; they didn't explode) bombs out the window while trying to elude the cops.
The payoff for doing this is that an entire city shuts down to literal empty sidewalks and train service is halted along a hundred-mile+ stretch.
Even worse now the authorities are allegedly preventing residents who were away from their homes from returning there!  You are now being forcibly dispossessed of your residence!  Yeah, it's temporary, but so what -- that's my damned house, not yours!  Get the hell out of my way!
Need I remind people that the entire point of terrorism is to terrorize?  To create economic havoc in a given area through violence, and by doing so advance some social or political goal?
What sort of lesson is the jackass in the Oval Office along with those crap-for-brains idiots in Massachusetts sending to our enemies around the world?  
Two *******s shut down a city of 7 million people who then cower in fear in their homes.
Screw that and screw them.
What should be the response is that every American who lives in that area should go about their business while openly carrying a pistol, rifle or both.
Go ahead -- try that terrorist crap with the proper response to such an event and see how long you live.  That would instantly be the end of those terrorists and the economic disruption would be zero.  It would also send a strong message -- pull that crap and we the people will do our duty as citizens to the common defense.
Instead we have a state and city that claims that doing so is "illegal" and gives the terrorists exactly what they want.
Those terrorists are responsible for murder but they're not responsible for the economic disruption.
You are responsible by putting up with this crap and the government is directly and proximately responsible by demanding that you cower in fear. Two jackasses who kill or injure fewer people than get hurt in car accidents in a given 24 hour period have now conspired with an idiot government to shut down an entire city of 7 million people!
How far we've fallen as a nation.  We can't find our balls with both hands these days.  We want the nanny cops and government to "protect us."  How well did it work at the Marathon?  To make it worse Massachusetts is one of those "great states" where you can't legally carry or possess a weapon without a license even though the 2nd Amendment says you have the unalienable right to do so.
I remind everyone that the 2nd Amendment exists for exactly this sort of reason and circumstance.  Go read it again if you're challenged in your memory of its words.
These terrorists deserve to assume room temperature as soon as they point a weapon or arm a bomb with the intent to harm anyone else.  The more people willing and able to do that the better, and the best way to respond to this sort of crap is to deny them the economic damage they seek to inflict.
Stop being stupid America; you shame our forefathers and those who stood tall when threatened in this nation's past, instead cowering in the corner and giving two murderous, cowardly jackasses exactly what they want.
What we should be doing is slinging weapons and going about our business, willing and able to discharge our duty as citizens toward both common and personal defense.

Jihad

I've wanted to wait until our government officials said something about the marathon bombers, well it didn't take long with what has unfolded the last few hours, what amazes me is the stupidity of the reporting on all MSM channels.

Plain and simple these young men both from Chechnya are nothing more than typical Muslim jihadists.
This will not end well if the younger brother is cornered he will try and take as many with him as he can.
This is because he is a martyr  and will get his reward in the afterlife.Just like 9/11 people can't understand why, it is quite simple. We in the west are infidels and the jihad committed individual has a  duty is to eliminate us.

Another aspect that is escaping the MSM is the fact that there has been various report and studies on Islamic terror and how that they have been recruiting and training new terrorist  from Bosnia and places like Chechnya because they look like us.  It make them easier to blend in and when the time comes create mayhem.

I'm willing to bet that this morning has shaken the alphabet agencies to the core, God knows how many sleeper cells could be out there and what they are willing and planning to do. When you look at what is going down in this search for the second brother anyone can see that they have accomplished there goal, Greater Boston is basically shut down right now I can only imagine the cost in commerce and emergency service OT because of the search.

I predict that this is the beginning of a new wave of attacks in the U.S. Part of it is our own fault because of the current administration policy in Afghanistan. The media thinks we are withdrawing and everything is ok. In the Islamic world eyes they have another superpower on the run and we are weak. They only respect force, just ask the Polish knights at the gates of Vienna.

The Russian withdrawal from the Stan  directly resulted din the troubles in Chechnya, the difference is  when it was getting out of hand the Russian Army used an iron fist to restore some semblance of order. We won't do it especially with the current administration.

People need to educate themselves about Islam, the MSM cry of moderate Islamic is so much bull I won't report their lies. I suggest you read Robert Spencer book The Politically Incorrect guide to Islam and the Crusades this will indeed open your eyes.

The politicians and the media will probably try to spin this for more gun control, or other laws which only screw law abiding Americans. They will refuse to admit to what the truth of what jihad realy is.

Medal of Honor for Chaplain (Capt.) Emil J. Kapaun

On Tursday an Army chaplain, Capt. Emil J. Kapaun, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor,  for his actions leading up to his capture as a prisoner of war in North Korea.


Kapaun was ordained a priest in 1940, and served under the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wichita in Pilsen, Kan. In 1944, he began serving as an Army chaplain. In 1993, Kapaun was named a "Servant of God" by the Vatican, and is currently a candidate for sainthood. He died as a POW on May 23 1951


Here is the Citation of his Medal Of Honor

God Bless you Father;

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, March 3, 1863, has awarded in the name of Congress the Medal of Honor to


Chaplain (Captain) Emil J. Kapaun
United States Army

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty:

Chaplain Emil J. Kapaun distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty while serving with the 3d Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division during combat operations against an armed enemy at Unsan, Korea, from November 1-2, 1950. On November 1, as Chinese Communist Forces viciously attacked friendly elements, Chaplain Kapaun calmly walked through withering enemy fire in order to provide comfort and medical aid to his comrades and rescue friendly wounded from no-man's land. Though the Americans successfully repelled the assault, they found themselves surrounded by the enemy. Facing annihilation, the able-bodied men were ordered to evacuate. However, Chaplain Kapaun, fully aware of his certain capture, elected to stay behind with the wounded. After the enemy succeeded in breaking through the defense in the early morning hours of November 2, Chaplain Kapaun continually made rounds, as hand-to-hand combat ensued. As Chinese Communist Forces approached the American position, Chaplain Kapaun noticed an injured Chinese officer amongst the wounded and convinced him to negotiate the safe surrender of the American Forces. Shortly after his capture, Chaplain Kapaun, with complete disregard for his personal safety and unwavering resolve, bravely pushed aside an enemy soldier preparing to execute Sergeant First Class Herbert A. Miller. Not only did Chaplain Kapaun's gallantry save the life of Sergeant Miller, but also his unparalleled courage and leadership inspired all those present, including those who might have otherwise fled in panic, to remain and fight the enemy until captured. Chaplain Kapaun's extraordinary heroism and selflessness, above and beyond the call of duty, are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, the 3d Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, the 1st Cavalry Division, and the United States Army.










F-15 Eagle

Nice video of the F-15, to bad the Air Force leadership is so screwed up that many of these aircraft will not fly the rest of the fiscal year with a net result of 17 squadrons that will not be able to preform their war time mission by Halloween.

Kansas To Adopt Pro-Second Amendment Nullification Bill

Kansas will become the first state in the union to adopt a pro Second Amendment Nullification bill. Hats off to their legislatures who have the gumption to stand up for freedom and our constitution. The bill should be signed by Governor Brownback in the next few days.

Here is a link to the full article.

Baroness Margaret Thatcher RIP

Baroness Margaret Thatcher also known as the Iron Lady passed away earlier today in the U.K. she was 87. She will always be remembered for being a stalwart friend of the United States and a champion in the U.K.. She was a strong pragmatic leader, unlike the wankers that have been Prime Minister over the last 30 years. God Bless

F-35 First Night Vertical Landing

While it's billions over budget, five years late and a program that really needs to be cancelled since we are broke. This is still a cool video,

Dr. Kermit Gosnell Trial

Funny how the media works including Fox. For weeks we have heard about the Jodi Arias murder trial, but has anyone heard a word about Dr Kermit Gosnell?

Gosnell is the scumbag abortionist in Philadelphia who is on trial for the murder of seven babies born alive and one of the patients under his care. His trial is ongoing and started back on March 18. He is facing the death penalty if convicted.

This man is a scumbag and deserves no mercy if convicted. When I read the stories about this man I reflected on my soon to be healthy and normal five year old granddaughter who was almost 8 weeks early and spent the first 25 days in the NICU and baby ward at Pitt Memorial Hospital, Greenville, NC.
For anyone to participate in this third trimester abortion activity, after you have been exposed to how viable premature infants are either is just plane evil or simply has no regard for human life.

Here are a few story links.

What evil looks like!

Thoughts on Korea

I watched various talking head MSM outlets today and heard one expert after another, Admirals, Generals, former State Department experts all talk about how a Nor Korean missile cannot reach the west coast and we have nothing to fear.
On this I don't disagree, but these experts and the media are arguing about a delivery device. They all think that a missile is the only way to deliver a nuclear weapon, this isi were they are all wrong and are not thinking outside the box.
We all know the the North Koreans have a viable nuclear weapon. What is the reason why they could not put it into a container load it unto a ship, sail it to Seattle or L.A. port and set it off? 

I'd like to hear them talk about this, unless this whole drama unfolding before our eyes is nothing but international theatre.

Time will tell.

North Korea Closes Kaesong Industrial Complex

What has been traditional been seen as a prelude to conflict the Nor Korean government has closed the Kaesong Industrial Complex that it operates with South Korea. This was the last open border crossing zone in the continuing escalation on the peninsula.
At the same time the USN has moved additional anti ballistic missile capable destroyers off the coast and is deploying ant missile capability to Guam.

The world is on fire and Obama is out fund raising and stump speeching against guns again today in CO. I'd like to personally thank all the low information voters that helped re-elect this waste of a suit.

Obama Greatest Gun Saleman Ever!

Back from some R&R, a fell goo report from Gregory Gynn-Willams Jr, at CNSNEWS.Com

There have been 70,291,049 background checks for gun purchases since President Obama took office, according to data released by the FBI.
In 2009, the FBI conducted 14,033,824 background checks. If we subtract the month of January (Obama did not assume office until the end of the month) we get 12,819,939.The FBI conducted 14,409,616 background checks in 2010, 16,454,951 in 2011, and 19,592,303 in 2012.
Add to that the first three months of 2013 (2,495,440, 2,309,393 and 2,209,407, respectively) and the total number of background checks under President Obama comes to 70,291,049.
Over the same time period, the number of background checks completed under President George W. Bush was 36,090,415, or about half the number conducted under Obama.

Colion Noir and the NRA

Very nice presentation by Mr. Noir. I want to see the usual suspects debate this mans views. I can tell you this, it will never happen

One Great Ad

This ad by Glock is still one of my favorites. What the left will not admit too is their are people who well prey on you and do you harm. You the individual must be willing to fight to protect yourself, your family and other innocents.

Be a sheepdog not a sheep.

We Have Met The Enemy

We have met the enemy and it is us. -- Pogo

I truly believe that the Cyprus crisis had lit the fuse for the eventual credit collapse in Europe that will dramatically impact the United States.
Of course it doesn't help when idiots like Speaker of the House John Boehner can make the statement agreeing with the tool also known as Obama.

“We do not have an immediate debt crisis,” the Ohio Republican said on ABC’s “This Week.”


I guess almost 17 trillion in debt and Bernenke printing at light speed and the U.S being a  bank run away from a financial collapse is simply not enough to make these so called leaders do the right thing.

I really think it's to late to change course, the only real question is how hard the landing is going to be.
