Hey Grimes, what’s up dude? by Dr. Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother.Shakespeare, Henry IV, Act IV, Scene 3 First published in Nov 2002 Hey Grimes, what’s up? How are things going for you up there in Valhalla? With Memorial Day coming, I thought I’d drop you a line. I don’t talk about it much, but there has not been a single day in over 32 years that I haven’t thought about you.
I remember the first time we met. It was in Staging Battalion at Camp Pendleton. At the ripe old age of 24, I was a good deal older than average. You’ve heard of the generation gap? Well, I was the gap. I had little in common with the guys of my rank, with whom I was allowed to socialize. But, although you were still very young, you were different–an enthusiastic, bubbling, peached faced kid from Amarillo, TX.
Remember our big plans for me to teach you to ride bulls and bareback horses when we got back to the world? Boy, what a couple of dreamers! When we got in country, you went to 5 th Marines and I went to 2 nd Battalion, 11 th Marines. Since my Battalion and your Regimental Headquarters were both at An Hoa , we had several chances to see each other and renew our friendship. Any time that you were there, you always made a point of finding me, as I did you when I would pass through. I’ll never forget the last time I saw you.
Barack Obama’s communist connections

The frontrunner for this year’s Democrat presidential nomination burst upon the scene from out of nowhere only in recent months. Two or three years ago, Barrack Hussein Obama was an unknown outside his Chicago bailiwick and in some other Illinois quarters. Even his time in the Illinois State Senate was unremarkable.
So what do we know about him?

Some of our public officials need a civics lesson, and then to re–apply for the job all over again. The first thing is to understand where they have standing and where they do not have standing.
The Castle Doctrine is making its way through due process now in Ohio, perhaps to be the twenty-first state to adopt it. (For definition, see Internet Search Term Castle Doctrine)
If one believes Law Enforcement’s job is to fight crime by arrest, deterrence, interdiction, administration of justice and by public cooperation, then Command Rank cannot oppose the people. Opposing laws which officially recognize Citizen Authority is to oppose the people they serve; where service has been forgotten and become self-serving into many cities. The idea that police would oppose the Castle Doctrine in protecting their own prestige over safe streets is a nationwide scandal. Their job is to enforce the law, not make it or even pressure it.

I should have seen this coming. I’ve been around the edges of it for years now. After watching the Bush machine slowly grind America into a second-rate debtor nation, I figured we were on our way to becoming Great Britain or France. I even thought – if the Chinese changed their mind and decided to call in our $9 trillion note or trade in Euros instead of dollars – we had a shot at becoming Argentina. So how did I miss that we’re already Germany. I’m not talking about modern, post-Commie, no more east and west, you can get a Mercedes anywhere Germany; I’m referring to blackshirt, goose-stepping, Poland invading nation of yore.
For those of you who are history-challenged, that would be bad old Nazi Germany.

In a stunning warning to all Americans, the non-partisan English First warned fans of national and local conservative talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Dr. James Dobson, Laurie Roth and other conservative talk shows that a proposed Federal Communications Commission regulation could very well drive their favorite programs off the air.
“This is serious business! The FCC that is part of the executive branch — in essence — is taking control of the airwaves, rather than allowing the US Congress and Senate to propose legislation, openly debate that legislation and then vote on it. One can compare what’s being done in the name of fairness with Stalinism,” warns conservative political strategist Mike Baker.
“If you look at who is pushing this so-called Fairness Doctrine, most likely you’ll find center-left advocates in politics, government, academia, and the press,” adds Baker.

Lessons from Childhood
Have you ever argued with your girlfriend or wife and realized — after hearing her words and voice tonality, viewing her facial expressions and body language, weighing the facts of the situation, and objectively assessing your personal behavior — that she was fighting not with you but with her father, mother, siblings, ex-boyfriends, or ex-husbands?
Of course you have, and I’ll bet it was recently. She hurled phrases, displayed fears, and used battle tactics that seemed incongruous with the matter at hand and inappropriate for you. Striking a chord yet? Congratulations! You know how to spot her emotional baggage. Now the question is, will that baggage ruin your journey?
I have never liked the Klintons at all. But I have always tended to lean toward underdogs in general. I never did quite figure out just which one, if anyone, of the Klintons might be the lesser of evils.
In this case, especially, it may well be a case where her fall from front runner to underdog is likely no coincidence at all.
She obviously was very likely to beat the dogcrap outta McStrangelove come November–could it be that that was unacceptable to someone/something? Then, speaking of coincidences, Obama suddenly appears on the scene, out of nowhere. Clearly, the “messiah” would instantly be recognized immediately by millions of potentail voters, especially those young potential voters trained, conditioned, indoctrinated, etc. in the marxist gubmint schools of our former Republic.
These are not my ideas, btw, I have been reading all this stuff wholly and/or in part by others for months now. Of course, this coincidence of her falling from grace and having someone at the same time standing ready in the wings, may have been egged on a lot by….let’s see….who could that be now???–aha, I got it! The msm could have a lotta influence in something like this maybe. Could that be? Perhaps. Why not, anything can happen, right?
As for Hillary’s RFK remark that’s causing the brouhaha right now, that’s really nothing to get excited over. I have also read such things earlier this year about, for intance, both Ron Paul, and Obama himself. Nobody seemed to be offended in those similar cases.

Rumsfeld: “Why Not another 911″
By Larry Chin
In a newly-released tape of a 2006 neocon luncheon meeting featuring former War Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, attended by ex-military “message force multiplier” propaganda shills Lt. General Michael DeLong, David L. Grange, Donald W. Sheppard, James Marks, Rick Francona, Wayne Downing, Robert H. Scales and others, Rumsfeld declared that the American people lack “the maturity to recognize the seriousness of the ‘threats’” — and need another 9/11.
When DeLong complained about a “lack of sympathetic ears” in Congress, and a lack of interest among the general American public, Rumsfeld responded, “What’s to be done? The correction for that, I suppose, is another attack.”
New World Order Quotations
A collection of quotations from elite figures, media heads, government officials, persons from history, authors and more on the subject of the move toward a new world order under a one world government and a reduced human population.
It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.
“Today the path of total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government – a bureaucratic elite.”
Senator William Jenner, 1954
Nofziger On Guns….
“That guns do more than protect us from criminals; more importantly, they protect us from the ongoing threat of government. That states are the bulwark of our freedom. That states should have the right to secede from the Union. That once a year we should hang someone in government as an example to his fellows.”
Government Arrogance Is Out of Control

I sat dumbfounded as I watched U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton defend his prosecution of Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean in a recent interview with CNN’s Lou Dobbs. To just about anyone who knows anything about this case, the prosecution and subsequent imprisonment of these two agents (who were simply attempting to enforce our nation’s immigration and drug laws) is an unfathomable miscarriage of justice. Yet, Sutton has repeatedly (with great smugness and pride, I might add) done everything but brag about putting these two officers in prison.

Chapter 9: The Great Centralizer: Lincoln’s Economic Legacy
3. Internal Improvements (Again)
When Lincoln was elected in 1860, the constitutions of almost all of the states prohibited subsidies for internal improvements. Furthermore, federal subsidies had never materialized for constitutional reasons either. “Constitutional scruples” had prevented Congress from passing a Pacific Railway Act but Lincoln had very few constitutional scruples. Any he might have had rapidly disintegrated once the Republicans controlled both the Senate and the White House.
By mid-1862 the military situation was desperate. Nevertheless, the Lincoln administration diverted millions of dollars to the construction of a railroad in California. The major opposition to such subsidies had previously come from Southerners. But, since Southerners were no longer present, nothing was to stop the adoption of the second plank of the American System—massive subsidies for corporations. So, Congress passed the Pacific Railway Act in June of 1862.

Col. David. H. Hackworth, 1930-2005
Legendary U.S. Army Guerrilla Fighter,
Champion of the Ordinary Soldier
“ In Hackworth’s world, there were two types of people – “studs” and “perfumed princes….” “
Washington, D.C., May 5, 2005 – Col. David H. Hackworth, the United States Army’s legendary, highly decorated guerrilla fighter and lifelong champion of the doughboy and dogface, ground-pounder and grunt, died Wednesday in Mexico. He was 74 years old. The cause of death was a form of cancer now appearing with increasing frequency among Vietnam veterans exposed to the defoliants called Agents Orange and Blue.
Col. Hackworth spent more than half a century on the country’s hottest battlefields, first as a soldier, then as a writer, war correspondent and sharp-eyed critic of the Military-Industrial Complex and ticket-punching generals he dismissed as “Perfumed Princes.”

Abstract: North’s career shows an undeniable streak of deceit and misuse of the trust of colleagues and the American public. His most significant betrayal was engineering the trade of arms to Iran for US hostages. North would become a threat if he were to succeed in a bid for the Senate.

LET ME TRY to describe Oliver North in a few fast bursts. He’s a jackass. He is so preposterous that there is a temptation to laugh at him. He’s smarmy, a flatter, a brownnoser. He’s also a twisted impostor, a drugstore Marine with an apparent compulsion to bullshit just about all the time. But while he tries to fool people with his fantasies, he is also very easy to fool. He boasts that he was an can-do guy when he was in the White House, but the record spells no-can-do. North did terible damage to the U.S. until he was caught. One thread runs through his performance–getting conned. The Iranians conned him, the contras conned him, the crooked arms dealers conned him and even Manuel Antonio Noriega conned him.

“We should remember that Iran, like Iraq, is a third-world nation without a significant military. Nothing in history hints that she is likely to invade a neighboring country, let alone do anything to America or Israel. I’m concerned, however, that a contrived Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran. … Mr. Speaker, let’s hope I’m wrong about this one.” —Rep. Ron Paul speech to US House, Jan.1, 2007
I have to hand it to Dr. Paul’s hard-core “Paulestinian” adherents, at least half of whom, by my rough estimate, understand the ways of the wicked world much better than the misled masses following the other presidential candidates. Among them it’s common knowledge that a “false flag” attack is one carried out against the people of a nation by their own government, then blamed on a bogeyman. Of course, as Dr. Paul noted above, there are variations of the false flag technique—like the faked Gulf of Tonkin attack that the Johnson administration used to press the nation into the Vietnam War.
Forget free gasoline! Car buyers want free guns

BUTLER, Mo. – A Missouri car dealership is triggering interest by offering customers free guns or gasoline with any purchase, and despite the skyrocketing price of fuel, patrons are going for the guns.
“We are aware of the gasoline and crime problem in America,” states an ad on the website of Max Motors. It goes on to note it “wants to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.”

McCain restricts access to medical records
May 22, 2008
By Joseph Curl – As Americans kick off the first holiday weekend of the summer Friday, Sen. John McCain will release 400 pages of his medical records to a handpicked group of reporters who can neither photocopy nor keep the documents, illustrating the sensitivity the campaign places on the 71-year-old candidate’s age and health.
For more than a year, the four-term senator has repeatedly promised to release his recent medical records, but has not yet done so.

There is an infowar against the most effective figures in the 9/11 truth movement, often by the most unscrupulous and dangerous government-sanctioned characters. A pair of Army military intelligence veterans have cooperated to sniff out an attempt by a COINTELPRO (counter-intelligence program) operator to target unsuspecting journalist Stephen Webster, and to use him as a “useful idiot” for passing along disinformation.
In a friendly message to Captain Eric H. May, SFC Donald Buswell, “The 9/11 NCO,” sounded the alert that a shady character named Tim White was contacting journalists with smear tactics. SFC Buswell was recently featured in a blockbuster article by Webster in The Lone Star Iconoclast:
Free at Last! Army Intelligence Analyst Buswell,
“the 9/11 NCO” Speaks Out
SFC Buswell became Captain May co-author in the recent “Mayday Alert” articles that became the most successful 9/11 truth movement warning ever about the dangers of Bush administration “anti-terror” drills. They were joined by two other co-authors: Dr. Jim Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth; and Major William B. Fox, publisher of America First Books. Both Dr. Fetzer and Major Fox are veteran Marine Corps officers.
Why Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican

It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S’s: Slavery, Secession, Segregation and now Socialism.

A clear view into the Yankee-Marxist worldview

Any who have studied the history of the War of Northern Aggression has, no doubt, heard of the infamous Dahlgren Papers. The Dahlgren Papers are a set of orders found on the body of Colonel Ulric Dahlgren after he was killed in Judson (Kill-Cavalry) Kilpatrick’s bungled attempt at a raid on Richmond, Virginia in 1864, supposedly to attempt to free federal prisoners of war. Writer Joseph Galloway labeled Kilpatrick’s raid “poorly planned and badly executed,” and said it was “A Moe, Larry, and Curly kind of caper.”

Hillary Plays the Crazy Card
Establishment hack Joe Conason of the “New York Observer” is not going to go out of his way to tar any one of the three chosen neo-con puppets in this Presidential race of 2008.
So when he quotes Hillary as saying, “”I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran. And I want them to understand that. …” – then we can bet she said it. She probably didn’t mean it exactly that way, and you can see the whole article here:

Feminism has been dying the death of a sick old woman. Shackled to the political party that opposed women’s suffrage, just as blacks are manacled to the political party of the Ku Klux Klan, both captives levied en masse as foot soldiers to fight the political party of Susan B. Anthony and of Abraham Lincoln, the party of all the original feminists and all the original abolitionists, feminists, like civil rights straw bosses, long ago sold their political soul. So, when Hillary Clinton is pilloried by the radical Left, her protests of victimhood produce no feminist outrage, because feminists cannot afford to speak too loudly against their Leftist masters. They know their place.

The Lost Tribes of Israel
by Patrick J. Buchanan
Posted 05/16/2008 ET
As Israel enters its 61st year, Israelis may look back with pride. Yet, the realists among them must also look forward with foreboding.
Israel is a modern democracy with the highest standard of living in the Middle East. In the high-tech industries of the future, she is in the first rank. From a nation of fewer than a million in 1948, Israel’s population has grown to 7 million. In seven wars — the 1948 War of Independence, the Sinai invasion of 1956, the Six-Day War of 1967, the Yom Kippur War of 1973, and the Lebanon wars of 1982 and 2006 — Israel has prevailed, though some of these wars were, as Wellington said of Waterloo, “a damn near-run thing.”
