With gnarled fingers, Chester Nez reverently opened the small box his son Mike had fetched for him at their West Mesa home. Even at 90 years old, Nez’s face still beams as he proudly opens it.
Careful not to touch the gold medal, Nez shares a secret.
“On the other side it says, ‘We used our language to defeat the enemy,’ and that’s what we did,” he said.

President Barack Obama is expected to reveal plans to station about 500 to 1000 Marines at a barracks in Darwin and to expand the US navy’s use of bases at the Northern Territory capital and in Perth in Western Australia.
He will make the announcement in Australia next week during a visit that includes Hawaii and Indonesia designed to assert America’s commitment to the Asia Pacific region.
The stunning stunt, flying a banner overhead just hours before Obama was expected to visit the USS Carl Vinson to watch a college basketball game scheduled on its deck, rattled more than a few individuals, as the pilot for the banner company reported the tower told him to “depart the area,” because there were “a lot of telephone calls” coming in.
What A Little-Known Colonial Pamphlet Tells Us About the Constitution

Between 1764 and the Declaration of Independence in 1776 Americans produced a rich series of pamphlets and resolutions listing their grievances against the central government of the British Empire. As I have pointed out before, reading those pamphlets is very helpful in understanding what the Constitution really means. And ignorance of them contributes to common constitutional mistakes.
Crime and Courts: Want to keep guns out of your home? Buy a ‘no-gun’ sign from the city

Now that Wisconsin allows people to carry concealed guns, here’s one thing you might want to know: That includes your home. That means that everyone from the Mary Kay lady to the plumber can come into your home packing heat, unless you tell them they can’t, or unless you post a sign.
People who oppose the law — according to some polls they make up the majority of the state — might be put off at having to stick a sign on their door to keep guns out of the home. But I think it beats having to tell everyone who comes to the door that they need to put their gun in the car.
So I’m going to buy a sign, which are being sold at the Madison City Clerk‘s office in Room 103 of the City-County Building at 210 Martin Luther King Blvd., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The sign, a 5-inch-by-7-inch vinyl sticker, costs $5.

The incident was reported shortly after 9 p.m., according to Sgt. David Schlosser, spokesman for the Park Police. Responding officers found an abandoned vehicle in the vicinity of the reported incident and were searching it “trying to figure out what happened.”(continued)
As long as the Republican Party ignores Obama’s ineligibility for the Presidency and his crimes, both before and after illegally occupying the Oval Office, I will not vote Republican and endorse permanent political corruption in Washington, D.C.
Voting Republican will simply delay the inevitable. In my opinion, it is better to let Obama win and allow a flawed two-party system to collapse.
It is within the power of the American people to refuse to subsidize the continuation of political corruption.
It is within the power of patriotic Americans to reject an oppressive big government philosophy and rebuild our political system from the bottom up, as the Founding Fathers envisioned and as our Constitution so brilliantly articulates.
The 2012 election can augur an American Renaissance or proffer a pathway to perdition represented by the status quo.
It is time to cast our ballots for “none of the above” and take back our government……

As with the constitutional struggle that was stirred up by the passage of ObamaCare, the President’s latest pet proposal is brightening the battle lines between friends of federal power and those who advocate the protection of the sovereignty of states. The American Jobs Act contains several key provisions that apparently push the boundary between state and federal power back, expanding Washington’s sphere of authority.

The Holy See is the oldest continuing international organization in the world. Its Secretary of State office was established in 1486, and that is also when its first permanent representatives were established in Venice, Spain, the Holy Roman Empire, and France. Today, the Holy See maintains diplomatic relations with 176 states. It is also the only Permanent Observer State at the United Nations, and it participates in various internationals conventions and agreements. While it is officially neutral, it is not silent.
The Holy See’s diplomatic prowess was tested severely during the twentieth century. Nevertheless, it played a crucial role in maintaining world peace, especially during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The Holy See and the Soviet Union had a very strained relationship. After World War II, Catholic leaders in the new areas of Soviet control were suppressed. Priests, bishops, and cardinals were given show trials and sent to prisons. Eventually, the Soviets engaged in covert activities to undermine the papacy itself by promoting the slander of Pius XII as “Hitler’s Pope.” Despite all this, the Vatican continued to influence Soviet leaders. In fact, Bl. Pope John XXIII helped bring the superpowers back from the edge of war in October 1962 – 49 years ago last month.
Conference kicked from hotel amid threats goes on, scolds visiting media

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee church that gave a platform earlier this year to the Dutch politician who was barred from the U.K. for his view of Islam found itself in crosshairs once again when a conference billing itself as America’s first on countering the rise of Shariah was forced to find a new venue after threats of violence from Muslims caused its host hotel to cancel.
Organizers of yesterday’s Preserving Freedom Conference at Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tenn., say the decision by the management of the Hutton Hotel in Nashville just two weeks ago to cancel a binding contract because of intimidation by Muslims was a poignant illustration of the primary message of more than two dozen speakers.
“We are at the stage here of self-imposed Shariah law at the threat of violence,” conference Chairman William J. Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition told a gathering of about 500.
Cornerstone Church was the venue for a speech in May by the controversial Geert Wilders in which he warned Americans not to “make the mistake which Europe made.”
“Do not allow Islam to gain a foothold here,” Wilders said. “Islam is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by Islamic Shariah law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including Christians.”
After yesterday’s conference, Cornerstone Church Senior Pastor Maury Davis told WND that churches, of all places, shouldn’t be shy about telling the truth in the face of resistance.

A few millennia from now, when archaeologists from an ascendant Brazil or Turkey or wherever sift the shards of American civilization and find the ruins of the Big House in Ann Arbor, Mich., they will wonder why a 109,901-seat entertainment venue was attached to an institution of higher education.
Editor’s Note, courtesy of contributor and blog owner Arnie Rosner and adapted for use by The Post & Email:
The Post & Email was born out of the usurpation of the presidency by a foreigner known as Barack Hussein Obama.
Before the attempted “Obomanation” of America, such a posting would not have been necessary. The false and misleading impressions delivered illegally by a person claiming to be a representative of the American people have compelled us to set the worldwide record straight and report on the egregious abuses of the U.S. Constitution by Obama and his supporters. The Post & Email does not recognize Mr. Obama as the legal president of the United States. There are also many other Americans who express the same sentiments, with the number growing daily. Further, after extensive experience and direct examination, The Post & Email has reached the conclusion that the 111th Congress has betrayed the trust of the American people and is made up of traitors to the U.S. Constitution who should be tried for the high crime of treason.

WASHINGTON – With the economic crisis worsening and Barack Obama resorting to rule by executive order and the presidential election still a year away, Americans from both sides of the political aisle are wondering if there are ways to “stop the bleeding” before January 20, 2013, and a change of administration.

PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland police believe that some protesters inside the Occupy Portland encampments are building shields and makeshift weapons — including nails hammered into wood — in preparation for when authorities attempt to clear the parks this weekend, police said Friday.
Occupy Portland organizers have repeatedly said the movement is nonviolent and have appealed to demonstrators to resist peacefully when the camps close at midnight on Saturday. They planned public marches and a potluck dinner before the deadline and hoped the public would take part.

…When our founders presented us with our founding documents over 200 years ago, no one could have possibly imagined in their wildest dreams that the greatest nation in the world, specifically created with three separate branches of government, each with unique guidelines, designed to monitor and supervise each other independently so as to protect the processes on which our freedom and liberty are based, could have possibly reached this level of open corruption where, simultaneously and with deliberation, all three independent branches of government have conspired to commit treason against the people of the United States of America.

“Can you give us a hint of who might be in your Cabinet,” a man shouted from the back of the crowded room of about 200 people.
“Well I’ll give you an example I’m looking for,” Gingrich said. “I believe we have to overhaul the State Department very dramatically. I think we need a secretary of state who is tough-minded and who would represent American interests. I think that Ambassador Bolton represents that kind of person.”

WASHINGTON: The Republican candidates seeking to replace US President Barack Obama face off Saturday in their first televised debate on foreign policy and are set to slam his handling of world affairs.
The issue can define a presidency but is unlikely to decide the November 2012 elections: US voters are focused foremost on the sour economy, and Obama earns far higher marks on terrorism, Afghanistan and Iraq than on unemployment.
That won’t stop Republicans from slamming the president on those issues, his handling of Iran’s suspect nuclear program, his often tense relations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, or other matters.

The world economy is watching with a great deal of alarm as Europe struggles to a resolution of its many crises. Iran is revealed to have the ambitions for nukes all the serious people have known about but the MSM either scoffed at or doesn’t understand, and the EPA is poised to issue rule after rule that are killing thousands of jobs but it is too complicated for the designated questioner to grapple with. And Obamacare continues its deadly roll-out, suffocating jobs, driving up premiums and crushing employment, but the media wizards don’t know how to or don’t care to try to open the floor to a sustained, detailed conversation on what to do next, after the repeal which must come.
What a farce.

Welcome to a Veterans Today magical mystery tour effort today, folks. I took the privilege of dressing up and sharing with you one of the Gordon’s best pieces, and perfect for Veterans Day.
We were having a long call one day in 2010 where he was going over his last bayonet charge story. It was so good I simply said, “Gordon you have to get off the phone and write this all up now, while it is fresh in your mind.”
In my years of interviewing combat vets I have learning you have to get all the material you can while they are ‘on a roll’.
