You’re a 19 year old kid. You’re critically wounded and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , on 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray , Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 – 1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in. You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away and you’ll never see them again.
As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day. Then – over the machine gun noise – you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter..!! You look up to see an un-armed Huey!! But…. it doesn’t seem real because no Medi-Vac markings are on it. Ed Freeman is coming for you..!! He’s not Medi-Vac so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fireanyway. Even after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come. He’s coming anyway. And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board..
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the Doctors and Nurses. He kept coming back..!! 13 more times..!! He took about 30 of you and your buddies out who would never have gotten out. Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman, died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , ID May God Rest His Soul.
I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunch about Michael Jackson!!!

During the nastiest battle of the entire 2008 presidential race, she aired an alarming television commercial warning voters that they would come to regret nominating Barack Obama to occupy the White House. If — in a national security crisis — the “red phone” rang at 3 a.m., the ad intoned, Obama would not hear it.

This time, I mean it literally. According to the New York Post, Obama budget boss Peter Orszag is engaged to ABC correspondent Bianna Golodryga. Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend Claire Milonas, gave birth to his illegitimate child on November 17. Orszag is already a two-time father by his first wife (they are divorced, naturally). The media is treating this whole story as a seedy morality play starring an incredibly nerdy Director of OMB. But even though it now appears that Orszag was spreading his…

There have been rumbles of unrest around the world regarding Obama’s nationality since the day he stated he would run for the presidency. Now, after more than a year as president of the USA, the rumbles have turned into a full on eruption.
The Barack Obama nationality scandal is refusing to burn itself out and seems to be gathering even more speed with Congressman Nathan Deal questioning the eligibility of Obama to hold the presidency. This is the first time in history that a serving president has been questioned about eligibility by a member of congress.
Over the last week the internet has been reporting this story with the blogosphere almost going into meltdown over the latest developments yet no mainstream media seem interested in the story that just won’t go away for Obama.
Congressman Deal asked the president to prove that he is legally entitled to hold the presidency electronically on December 1st 2009. This communication was confirmed received by Obama’s staff but has yet to be responded to.
Even though the president has already produced his short-form birth certificate in order to stop these questions, he has spent a large amount of taxpayers money (estimated to be more than two million dollars) ensuring that the long-form certificate is kept from the public – an action that has raised more than a few eyebrows along the way.
Throughout the campaign trail and longer, Obama made promises of the most transparent administration than any other so why the need to hide a simple birth certificate? Many claim that the whole situation is a complete waste of time and distracting but supporters of the question refuse to stop asking more and more questions.
It seems that the original question seems to have caused a stir not just in America but worldwide with thousands of people doing independent research in an attempt to get the facts out. The problem with independent research is that it is hard to verify where the alleged facts came from and when they are traced back its not unusual to find that it stemmed from opinion.
With several birth certificates doing the rounds, many proven as hoaxes, the ‘official’ birth certificate in the Obama nationality scandal seems to prove that the president was in fact a British Subject at birth. On the website dedicated to protecting Obama from smears, Fight The Smears, there is an electronic copy of the birth certificate showing that Obama was born a British Subject. This in itself has been the cause for much speculation on how, why and when nationality was transferred.
Obama’s nationality scandal doesn’t seem to be going anywhere at the moment and even the secret service seem to be taking an interest in anyone questioning Obama’s nationality with visits being made for security reasons. Reported last week at Mother Jones, more and more people who have raised issue are being visited by the secret service and being left feeling very intimidated.
No matter what side of the fence you sit on this scandal seems set to stay around for a long time to come.

I fear that this is the fall of the American empire. The way this echoes the fall of the Roman Empire is far too eerie. Decadence abounds. Our culture is sick with immorality and excess. Everybody remembers that the fall of the Roman Empire entailed mass decadence and moral decay. The power of Rome dissipated through a lack of discipline, and an abandonment of the values that put Rome at the paragon of civilization. It was often said that during the decline of the Roman Empire, Romans refused to believe in their gods. The parallels with American society in 2010 are undeniable. America is obviously undergoing a similar secularization of its culture, along with a complete decay of its moral values and discipline. Anyone to whom this is not completely obvious has no brain. I am sorry, America, you used to rock, but it’s over now. I am just so sorry that I’m a part of the generation that allowed the American Empire to fall. However, it is also a well-known fact that, throughout history, there haven’t been many times when a dying culture has experienced a resurgence. We are not dead yet, but we need to rally. God bless America!

An honest and objective reading of both the Quran and the Bible reveals a significant clash between the two both in terms of how to conceptualize God, as well as in their respective depictions of the behavior of deity. Allah says and does things that the God of the Bible did not and would not say or do. The Quran’s representation of the sovereignty of God (like Calvinism) contradicts the character of God by attributing actions to Him that are unlike deity.

Just today, we’ve had two more arrests out of New York of friendly religion of peace folks. Only a few days before that, a Palestinian Arab Muslim who owns a mosque was taken off a plane for shouting that he wanted to kill Jews. The media however is dismissing it as nothing more than a drunken incident.

This has provoked a serious and sustained effort by the US and European authorities to prevent such a thing from happening again so they have established strict controls over Nigerians travelling through their airports.

Obama eligibility attorney charges case rife with fraud
Asks court for ‘evidentiary hearing for possible criminal prosecution’

An attorney who has been involved in several cases alleging Barack Obama isn’t qualified to be president because he is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution now is asking a California judge to investigate possible fraud against the court.
Orly Taitz, who has, among other cases, one pending at the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of a member of the military wondering whether orders from Obama as commander-in-chief are valid, said the possibility of fraud is one of several concerns in the case.
“There is such a high probability of criminal acts of identity theft and Social Security fraud committed by the respondent that the undersigned requests this honorable court to use its inherent powers to order Sua Sponte an evidentiary hearing on this particular issue for possible criminal prosecution,” she wrote in her latest arguments that also request the case be moved to Washington, D.C.
She noted the respondent, Obama, “has submitted himself to the jurisdiction of this honorable court and can be brought to a separate evidentiary hearing to ascertain if fraud was perpetrated upon the court by assertion of false identity, even if the underlying case is not heard or closed for one reason or another.”
She also asked that the U.S. attorney’s office, which has been representing Obama’s interests in the case, be barred from participating “due to the obvious inherent conflict of interest.”

Krauthammer said Obama uses words like “suspect,” “alleged attack,” “isolated extremist,” as if he’s talking about a “disgruntled postal worker.” It took Obama a “5th attempt” (following the attempted terror attack on Northwest Flight 253) before he actually used the language of us being in a “War on…

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — With Senate Republicans blocking their nominations because of their pro-abortion views and other issues, two nominees for federal judgeships were never approved. With another session of Congress starting shortly, President Barack Obama will reportedly renominate Louis Butler Jr. and Edward Chen. Obama picked the two abortion advocates to be district court judges — the kind of judges who initially review lawsuits on pro-life issues and legislation before they move up to an appeals court or the Supreme Court. He could have given them a recess appointment that would be effective for one year only, but decided…

As the people’s freedom is diminished, so is America’s greatness. Once lost, neither freedom nor the nation’s greatness can be easily regained. The people’s freedom has been dramatically eroded in recent years, and the Marxist majority now in control of the federal government is trying hard to extinguish those few flames that still flicker. The underlying principle of America’s system of government is clearly stated in the Declaration of Independence: Governments derive their just powers “from the consent of the governed.” People are free when they control…

Off the Chest
In an outfit famed for its toughness, leathery, rock-jawed Brigadier General Lewis Burwell Puller, U.S.M.C., is as tough as they come. In the ’20s, as a young marine, he led native troops against bandits in Haiti and Nicaragua, so awed his troops with his parade-ground voice and his gallantry in battle that they named him El Tigre.
By 1932, “Chesty” Puller had won two Navy Crosses and was well on his way to becoming a legend of the Corps. He served with the “Horse Marines” at Peking, with the famed 4th Marines at Shanghai in the days of the Japanese occupation of China’s metropolis. In World War II, he commanded a battalion and then a regiment of the ist Marine Division, fought from Guadal canal* to Peleliu, won two more Navy Crosses, was wounded seven times.
Last week, after nine months in Korea, weather-beaten Chesty Puller, 52, assistant commander of the ist Division, veteran of the Inchon landing and the Marines’ heroic retreat from the Changjin Reservoir, was back in the U.S. to take over a training command.
Facing the press, he announced that he was under strict orders not to criticize anyone. Then, in his best parade-ground voice, he got off a few observations:
“What the American people want to do is fight a war without getting hurt. You can’t do that any more than you can go into a barroom fight without getting hurt.”
Air power can’t live up to some of the things claimed for it. The Air Force does not understand close air support, “does not believe in it,” and “has never practiced it.”
¶”The rifle and the bayonet are still the most important weapons the Army has … I want [the Marines] to be able to march 20 miles, the last five at double time, and then be ready to fight . . .”
¶”Our officer corps have had far too much schooling and far too little service in the field of battle . . . Throw all these girls out of the camps. Get rid of the ice cream and candy. Give ‘em beer and whisky—that’ll help some. Get some pride in them. Tell them they’re men . . .”
¶”Unless the American people are willing to send their sons out to fight an aggressor, there just isn’t going to be any United States. A bunch of foreign soldiers will come over and take our women and breed not only another race of people, but a hardier race of people.”
