    Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson. In the modern era, we’ve seen several failed presidencies–led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one strong common trait– they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out. Of course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming traffic by his own party. Richard Nixon indeed resigned in disgrace, yet his reputation as a statesman has been partially restored by his triumphant overture to China 20. –click here for full article.

As Barack Obama’s approval ratings continue to plummet, the tea party movement explodes and Democrats lose election after election – even in Massachusetts – one giant question looms large for Team Obama: How to stay in power?

The answer to that question can be found in the groundbreaking March issue of Whistleblower magazine, titled “STEALING THE NEXT ELECTION.”

This game-changing special report is summarized in its long subtitle: “Amnesty, universal voter registration, felons voting, operatives planted: Team Obama’s strategy for maintaining permanent power.”

    According to both common sense and the American Academy of Pediatrics, there are two truths about hot dogs which neither science nor industry can afford to ignore: kids love hot dogs, and hot dogs are the perfect size and shape for a child to choke on. To wit: “If you were to take the best engineers in the world and asked them to design a perfect plug for a child’s airway, you couldn’t do better than a hot dog,” one AAP doctor said. As such, the hot dog is in need of a redesign. So the folks at Fast Company…

    U.S. Attorneys with the Department of Justice have moved to dismiss Orly Taitz’s Quo Warranto case for lack of jurisdiction. Additionally, the U.S. Attorneys’ Office asserts that any judicial or bar sanctions against Dr. Taitz are the consequences of her own actions. “Although, to Defendant’s knowledge, this is Dr. Taitz’s first case in which she serves as Plaintiff, this is not her first bite at the apple, or even her second: she has unsuccessfully represented plaintiffs in at least three judicial districts seeking to raise similar claims. In each of these cases, the United States district courts have declined to…

    Frustrated by the president’s inability to follow simple instructions, Obama’s boss, unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros has resorted to chiding Obama in public. Soros criticized Obama’s incompetence in enacting vital parts of the Soros agenda , including government takeover of the banks. Soros carped that the government should have taken over U.S. banks rather than bailing them out. He also asserted that the American people would have been happier if the federal government had socialized the entire banking system. Bailing out the banks and allowing them to “earn their way out of the hole” was the wrong solution, according to…

    Politico ^ | 10/20/2009 | KEN KLUKOWSKI
    The Senate Finance Committee-passed health care bill includes an “individual mandate” that Americans must buy an insurance policy or pay a fine, an approach that tracks President Barack Obama’s health care proposals. But if enacted into law, this mandate would be glaringly unconstitutional. That’s because those refusing to get insurance would be subject to a fine, and refusing to pay would be a misdemeanor crime, punishable by another fine or even jail time. States wield what is called police power: the authority to make laws for the health, safety and morality of their people. The federal government, on the other…

WND ^ | 3/2/10 | David Hinckley

To no one’s surprise, the top dogs in talk radio remain a chorus of Barack Obama critics led by Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh is No. 1, as usual, on the annual “Heavy Hundred” list of influential hosts just published by the trade magazine Talkers.Sean Hannity, ranked No. 2, commented on the eve of the 2008 election that while he felt John McCain would be a better President, an Obama presidency would be a bonanza for talk radio.He’s been proven right, as the conservatives who dominate the major talk radio airwaves have scored solid ratings by teeing off on all things.

The House The Progressives Built
Maybe Patrick Buchanan in his 2004 book Where the Right Went Wrong can tell us why Gingrich was silent about the GOP reform on his watch. Buchanan writes about the Republican Revolution of 1994, when, in 1995, Newt Gingrich backed down in his showdown with Clinton. Clinton, at the nadir of his presidency, refused to accept Gingrich-Dole cuts in the growth of Medicare, which they had embedded in a budget resolution and sent to the White House………

    As everyone expected, Rush Limbaugh held onto his number one spot in this year’s “Heavy Hundred.” This annual list by Talkers magazine rates the most popular and influential hosts on talk radio, and as usual, the list is dominated by conservatives. Contrary to some dire predictions, it seems that having a Democrat in the White House has in fact energized talk radio. The New York Daily News notes that “even the two advice talkers in the top 10 – Dr. Laura Schlessinger at No. 5 and Dave Ramsey at No. 7 – don’t care much for Obama’s policies.” Glenn…

Gunny G: OohRah!

March 2, 2010 Leave a comment


OohRah!Ever wonder where some of the most common items of our Marine Corps history came from? Things like the term “Jarhead,” etc.? Most of these things are pretty well known by all Marines. But, then, there are also numerous cases where our accepted history is just plain inaccurate. For instance, Major Devereaux’s last message from the besieged Wake Island in early World War Two–“Send Us More Japs”–or that the red stripe on the blue uniform trousers of officers and NCOs (sometimes referred to as bloodstripes) commemorates  the Marine blood spilled at the battle of Chapultapec in 1847. These two items are not true, and there are many more things like this that I have addressed elsewhere on my websites.

And then there are some cases where the origin of certain traditions are altogether unknown. Take for example, the case of the well known OohRah! What is its origin? What is its meaning? When and where did it start? Is it related to similar cries now in use by other military services? Nobody knows for sure. Yeah, most everybody has an opinion, but what is the straight scoop? Some of the more popular “opinions” on this include that OohRah comes from either (take your pick) a Turkish or a Russian battle cry, and was somehow adopted by U.S. Marines. For many years, I, myself, leaned in the direction that it may have originated with the 1956 film, The DI, staring Jack Webb as T/Sgt Jim Moore, who, in that movie, the “gunny” commands his recruit platoon (paraphrased), “Let me hear you GROWL, tigers!”

In any case, opinions on this abound–some ridiculous, some even humorous,  but like I already said, nobody seems to knows for sure. OohRah is now well-entrenched in Marine Corps tradition, and although I have found that it is generally disliked and its use disapproved of by many old time Marines, one thing is for sure–it is here to stay! Personally, I think that provided we could determine valid and meaningful historical origin, much of this disapproval  by old timers would soon be forgotten. And it seems like OohRah’s origin is not so far distant in our past that there should still be some old salts around even now who can clue us in on the straight scoop.

Somewhere I read….”The sea story is the traditional means by which wisdom is passed on from the older generation of Marines to the younger generation.”
-Author Unknown

That makes sense to me, and I have thought that if we’re ever going to get an answer on this it will be from Marines who were there and know. For at least a couple years now I have been using the resources of my e-mail and websites to seek information from Marines on this question, but the results have been disappointing. Up to now, that is.

On 12 May 2002, I received the following information from  Marine Bob Rader (Sgt Wolf); the info had first been posted to the Sgt Grit’s Bulletin Board and then e-mailed to me. *****************
From Whence It Came?

Received this among some other stuff from an old college classmate and former Force Troops Recon Marine, Dr. Frank Osanka:

The Recon Marines (and maybe all Marines), have their “OORAH” and the Army its “HOOAH”! But what is the origin of these exclamations by troops (can’t call them words– they are better described as sounds)? When used they are unmistakenly expressions of verve, spirit, morale, espirit, eliteness and sometimes derision! They are responses, greetngs, etc.

You won’t find anything in Navy BuPers files. Marine Corps directives or Army regulations prescribing that they be used. Yet, they permeate the ranks and their origins ought to be recorded for they are as much military lexicon as “SNAFU,” “GI”, “Kilroy was here”, “P38″, etc. And, woe betide the commander who thinks he can put an end to their use! They are exclusive property of those who use them and rightfully so–for what it means to them transcends anything a leader can do to give them unity and a sense of belonging!

Whey did they start? Who started them? Why are they so popular with the troops? I can’t answer the question…”OORAH”is answered below, courtesy of Gary “Buddha” Marte, (former Marine).

    A story by Kenneth P.

However, these extremists are conspicuously not identified in the article as the “gay conservatives” who co-sponsored the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). These are the “anal sex practitioners,” as Howard Phillips of the Conservative Caucus prefers to calls them.

    On Friday, February 19th, highly popular radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh played a little game with someone who called in to his program. The topic was President Barack Obama and his legislative agenda. Limbaugh proceeded to answer his listener’s queries concerning why Bill O’Reilly, the host of the O’Reilly Factor (FOX News Channel) would never refer to Obama as a socialist. Limbaugh began to role play, saying, “I’m Bill O’Reilly. Barack Obama is not a socialist…” The message was clear. Limbaugh was aware of the game O’Reilly has been playing since Obama was elected to office. Well, some might…

Town Hall ^ | 1-26-10 | Robert A. Levy

As the Massachusetts blame game unfolds, the president’s unpopular health bill leads the list. But the substantive provisions of the bill were just part of the problem. Perhaps more important, voters were appalled by how the deal unfolded.

Consider the pre-election giveaway to the labor unions. Negotiators agreed to exempt union contracts until 2018 from the tax on so-called Cadillac health-insurance plans. That backroom bargain not only outraged the voters, it also violated the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, requiring the federal government to extend equal protection of the laws to all U.S. persons. Of course, not all voters understood the constitutional nuances, but they sensed that something was very wrong; and they reacted.

    B. Hussein Obama was touted as America’s foreign relations savior, the deity who would repair America’s image with the rest of the world. How has Obama done with the middle east? Not so good. He has bowed and scraped in front of the Saudi King, not been able to control Iran and Aquavelvejihad, upset Israel, bowed almost to the floor for the Japanese Emperor, and allowed the North Korean dwarf to push him around. How has B. Hussein Obama done with our greatest ally, Great Britain? He couldn’t have done any worse if he had defecated at the Queen’s feet.

He held off a last minute surge by Keith Ubermoron, who managed to self parody himself for much of the month.

Now, folks may say that he won for pushing his socialist agenda in spite of its overwhelming fail. Others might say that it’s because he’s ignoring the economy and jobs in order to get ObamaCare passed. However, I think Snarky Basterd has revealed the true reason.

    The Guardian reports that President Obama’s doctors have recommended he moderate his “alcohol intake.” Most reportage on the president’s recent physical has focused on Mr. Obama’s continuing smoking habit, but revelation of a potential drinking problem is a much bigger story. How much “alcohol intake” does it take to get a doctor’s attention? And what did the president drink and when did he drink it? If nothing else it might help explain some of Mr. Obama’s policy priorities, and why the government is spending money like a drunken sailor.
