Gunny G: What Would Chesty Puller Do?
We live in extraordinary times. Often we hear people say, or write, what would so-and-so do in this or that case?
True, the Chesty Pullers, the George Pattons, MacArthurs, Smedley Butlers, Curt LeMays, Evans Carlsons, etc. are no longer with us. But are men of like courage now gone altogether? God knows, it would be very difficult for such men to even get a toe-hold in today’s pc world.
But, who knows, perhaps they are out there somewhere, just biding their time, waiting for the right time, the right place, the right situation–we’ll see won’t we.
The following article is about one of these non-pc individuals.
General Smedley D. Butler and the Contradictions of American Military History

Denied the commandancy, Butler did not dig in for a prolonged sulk as major general manqué. In the letter in which he vowed to block Naval Academy rivals for the next fifteen years, he also alluded to a resilience that precluded anything like General Barnett’s last stand as…..

Until recently, few people gave much thought to senescent cells. They are cells that linger in the body even after they have lost the ability to divide.
But on Nov. 2, in what could be a landmark experiment in the study of aging, researchers at the Mayo Clinic reported that if you purge the body of its senescent cells, the tissues remain youthful and vigorous.
The experiment was just in mice, and it cleared the cells with a genetic technique that cannot be applied to people. Like all critical experiments, it needs to be repeated in other labs before it can be accepted with confidence.

And if we get things right, then starting next year we can start seeing some significant improvement.

Gingrich to teach free online course from White House if elected
Posted on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 8:13:59 PM by presidio9
If elected to the White House, former speaker of the House and history professor Newt Gingrich wants to teach Americans a lesson — that is, for free on the Internet about his policy views. The self-proclaimed “ideas man” said on Monday his course would be distributed on the Web in a format similar to the University of Phoenix or Kaplan.
“I think I will probably teach a course when I’m president,” Gingrich told students and supporters after a campaign speech on entitlement reform at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
Bernard Fay belongs to the France of the ancien regime, the true France of Monarch, Church and army. This France was rotted out and destroyed by Illuminati Jewish finance and their Masonic lackeys who sponsored the French Revolution.
Modern history is an account of how power and wealth has been transferred from the church and aristocracy to Illuminati finance using liberal and democratic ideals as pretexts.
Nazi Germany had to make a show of being anti-Masonic since its enemies were controlled by Freemasonry. Bernard Fay seized this brief moment to try to save his beloved France. Of course, this window closed quickly since the Nazis were financed and controlled at the top by the Illuminati.
Modern history and culture is saturated by Masonic assumptions yet the cult is largely unknown and unmentioned. Masonic Illuminism is the (satanic) religion of mankind yet its name is never spoken.

Liberalism – The Lawless Ideology
Posted on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 6:21:53 PM by The Ignorant Fisherman
Liberalism – The Lawless Ideology
Liberalism – for the most part – rejects out right the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. The root and source of this rejection – of these crucial moral laws and realities – is their subjective hatred towards the Creator of the heavens and earth (Romans 1:18-32). This base ideology is expressed and manifested in their disdain and hostility towards the American blue print drawn up by our Founding Fathers, which was based on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.

Today marks the 48th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The slain president’s wife, his successor, and the liberal media blamed the murder on Dallas’ “climate of hate.” That smear cast a pall on the innocent citizens of that city for decades. I know, because I grew up in the shadow of Big D and in the shadow of Kennedy’s killing. For decades after Nov. 22, 1963, you could go anywhere in the country, tell anyone you were from Dallas, and if you spent enough time with that person, Kennedy’s assassination would inevitably come up.
Frank Rich chose to mark the 48th anniversary by smearing Dallas, again, and by extension conservatives of the present. It’s a column which should get him ridiculed and fired; no one who is so irresponsible with the hard facts of life has any place in the commentariat.The title gives Rich’s game away. It’s “What Killed JFK?” not “Who Killed JFK?” as it should be. A “what” is much easier to abstract, isolate, and attack than a “who” who had inconvenient opinions and motivations, and a madness to move.

Useful idiot is a derogatory adage, describing a person either too naïve or ignorant to understand that their advocacy of malevolent organizations only allows those organizations to conduct their business with impunity. Confused and misguided, the “occupy” movement is used by the labor unions and left wing radicals to conduct their bidding, disrupting the very business activity they need to support them. Gay rights advocates lobby to legitimize behavior that is contrary to God’s will, rather than loving their neighbor enough to lead them back to the Lord. Prior to the fall of the Soviet Union, soviet sympathizers used their influence to promote socialism and in several instances, used their positions to steal sensitive information and forward it to soviet agents. What they did not know, however, was that although the Soviets used the information, they actually reviled the sympathizers as traitors.

CBO: Stimulus hurts economy in the long run
Posted on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 5:52:37 PM by kcvl
The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday downgraded its estimate of the benefits of President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package, saying it may have sustained as few as 700,000 jobs at its peak last year and that over the long run it will actually be a net drag on the economy.
CBO said that while the Recovery Act boosted the economy in the short run, the extra debt that the stimulus piled up “crowds out” private investment and “will reduce output slightly in the long run — by between 0 and 0.2 percent after 2016.”

In 1920, Adolf Hitler formed the Youth League of the National Socialist Workers’ Party. In 1922, a new youth organization emerged that eventually became known as Hitler Youth. It targeted boys ages 14-18. Eventually a second group was formed for boys ages 10-14 and a girls’ organization that covered ages 10-18. The goal of the Youth organizations was to indoctrinate the next generation of leaders to help insure the success for the Nazi Party.
From 1922 to 1945, the Hitler Youth saw thousands of teenaged kids turning in their parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, cousins and friends, the government for speaking out against Hitler and his Nazi rule. Thousands of people were imprisoned, beaten and even executed. They turned in their neighbors and school mates who were Jewish.
Hitler Youth was so effective that ever today some of them still carry the hatred and prejudices they were taught. The father of a man I worked with was a member of the Hitler Youth. Today’s he’s in his early 80’s and he still hates Jews, Christians and blacks and believes that Hitler should have won the war.

“DO YOUR DUTY TO TEXANS”

What will this Secretary of State do to prevent election fraud in 2012?
The Honorable Esperanza “Hope” Andrade
Secretary of State
State Capitol Room 1E.8
Austin, TX 78701
Dear Madame Secretary:
We face another important presidential election. After this past presidential election, citizens of Texas learned presidential candidates WERE NOT properly vetted. Texans STILL have seen NO conclusive proof as to the true identity of “Barack H. Obama.” Texans still are not convinced John McCain was a citizen “of the soil.”
The U. S. Constitution is clear concerning presidential candidates. They MUST be natural born citizens; Art II, Sec. 1. Minor v. Happersett and United States v. Wong Kim Ark offers additional conclusive evidence in SCOTUS opinions as to the meaning of a natural born citizen. The Constitution, our Founders, and even Nature itself teaches us that a natural born citizen is created by birth on the soil of the nation by TWO citizen parents. The one calling himself Barack H. Obama openly admits that his father NEVER was a citizen. And, we have SEEN NO CONCLUSIVE LEGAL PROOF that Barack H. Obama was born on U.S. soil!
Can you assure me as a citizen of Texas that you will properly vet ALL presidential candidates BEFORE placing them on a Texas ballot? Would you be willing to offer that same legal proof in a public forum so ALL Texans are assured that candidates like Obama have been properly vetted by you?We no longer trust the Democratic National Committee to vet their candidates. You are our last line of defense against election fraud! We ask only that you do your duty to Texans and honor your oath of office to Texas and our Constitution.
Passenger forced to stand for a seven-hour airline flight

At nearly seven hours, US Airways flight 901 is one of the longest domestic nonstop airline flights. And Arthur Berkowitz knows how long it takes to get from Anchorage to Philadelphia down to the minute. That’s because he says he had to stand for most of the flight when he returned to Philly last July.
Why would anyone stand for that long? Because he says a morbidly obese passenger seated next to him was spilling into his personal space, making it impossibly to sit in his assigned seat, and the flight was completely full.

HAS THE “OCCUPY” MOVEMENT LED TO TIGHTER RESTRICTIONS ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?
by Robert DeBeaux
The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights provides for the right of the people to petition their government for the redress of grievances. But is government listening or quashing the petitioners?
The Occupy movement has been demonized since its inception. From the very start, political elites ignored the protestations because the message was/is contrary to the desires of Congress and the Administration’s subversive goals.
When the elite discovered they could not dissuade the protestors, elitists and organizers decided to subvert, obfuscate and dilute the message. Not only did they succeed in “shouting louder” than the original protesters, they managed to stir the pot of emotions to the boiling point.
All of the cities across America are using force to get rid of this “Occupy” blight. Cities are using police force, pepper spray, water hoses, and hauling people off to jail while we Americans applaud law enforcement’s efforts at the direction of politicians who DO NOT WANT the message to be simple: America belongs to the People.

Obama has learned how to turn a natural recovery into a serial slowdown.
Sometimes the wrong medicine can make a struggling patient far sicker than he would have been had he been allowed to recover naturally. Western medicine began with the premise that the physician either must know how to cure the patient or simply leave him alone — but above all not make him worse through harmful treatment.

“ … states’ rights, states’ rights, states’ rights!” — Rick Perry at the Alamo, June 15, 2009
Until you get higher in the hills, Laconia might be considered the vortex of New Hampshire redneck politics, heavy into the Tea Party. The Lakes Region Tea Party is small but might be indicative of how things will go. A straw poll on Nov. 16 gave Newt Gingrich 49 percent while Cain tied with Ron Paul at 15. Romney 12 percent and Rick Perry 0. Similar results in a straw poll at a Republican club in Alabama on Saturday: Newt 45 percent, Cain 13, Paul and Romney both 11 and Perry 3. Interesting because Perry first gave national credence to the Tea Party when he chanted for states’ rights at the Alamo. But with the sudden rise of Newt, the consummate Washington insider, the Tea Party is no longer really about states’ rights and specific issues. It’s about passion.

Deliciously, the Joint Majority is too imbecilic to realize its own implication, that Congress ought never to have foisted the barbaric TSA on us. It obliviously argues for reinstating the process that murdered 3000 people on 9/11, the unconstitutional arrangement Congress devised 40 years ago and just as unconstitutionally replaced on November 19, 2001. Except now it adds sexual molestation, thievery, and brutality.
It is thanks to Obama’s narcissism, ego and arrogance that We the People know where they stand: Trapped in a nation where everything’s changed for the worse since 2008.
For all of those who want to argue that the change has been wearing down America for the past 100 years and particularly during the 8-year administration of George W. Bush: that ship already left port; it’s far too late to do anything about the past but prime time to deal with Obama over the coming year.
Jump into the present. Barack Obama’s headed for re-election, even if it’s re-election courtesy of suspended elections.

When the 2012 Republican nominating contest was getting underway earlier this year, it was widely predicted (I predicted it myself) that the race would eventually come down to a contest between an establishment candidate like Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty, and a Tea Party candidate more appealing to the party’s base. It seemed perfectly reasonable at the time; after all, the Tea Party had energized the GOP and propelled it to the historic 2010 congressional election victory.

San Francisco – In a victory for fair use, the publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Stephens Media, filed papers yesterday conceding that posting a short excerpt of a news article in an online forum is not copyright infringement. The concession will result in entry of a judgment of non-infringement in a long-running copyright troll case that sparked the dismissal of dozens of baseless lawsuits filed by Righthaven LLC.
The case began when the online political forum Democratic Underground — represented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Fenwick & West LLP, and attorney Chad Bowers — was sued by Righthaven for a five-sentence excerpt of a Review-Journal news story that a user posted on the forum with a link back to the newspaper’s website. Democratic Underground countersued, asking the court to rule that the excerpt did not infringe copyright and is a fair use of the material, and brought Righthaven-backer Stephens Media into the case.
The Court dismissed Righthaven’s infringement case because it did not own the article, but Democratic Underground’s counterclaim against Stephens Media continued. After initially attempting to defend the bogus assertion of copyright infringement, Stephens Media has now conceded it was incorrect.

For weeks now, Republicans have attacked Democrats for voicing support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters, in particular faulting the DCCC for standing up for them. And the incidents of violence and excess have led some neutral commentators to predict that Dems will pay a political price if they align themselves with the movement.
So it’s interesting to see that the DCCC is sticking by Occupy Wall Street. Indeed, the DCCC is now raising money off that recent report of a GOP-connected corporate lobbying firm’s proposed smear campaign against the movement. Nancy Pelosi has authored a DCCC fundraising email that presents this as proof that Republicans are on the side of Wall Street and against Dems and the protesters:

This is a difficult age in which to be a conservative.
While the national executive branch remains in the clutches of a radical administration that daily flaunts the Constitution, producing an equal and opposite reaction in an electorate that practically salivates at the opportunity to throw them out, the Republican Party’s primary process seems bound and determined to produce a challenger far less aggressive then the people desire.
Conservatives have therefore spent months agonizing, as they search for – pray for – some way to nominate a candidate who is up to the needs of the time, and worthy of the public mood. Conservatives are concerned that we may indeed allow the greatest opportunity for a prompt return to Constitutional government to slip through our fingers, in the selection of a typical Republican nominee, rather than the mighty leviathan-tamer that the times require.
And it is true that in a year like 2012 is expected to be, to nominate anyone less than a candidate sharing the philosophy and temperament of the Framers will be a severe mistake.
But suppose that it happens. Suppose, just suppose, that when the dust clears from the suicidally-designed Republican presidential primary calendar, rather than a Constitutionalist like Sen. Rick Santorum or Rep. Michelle Bachmann, the nominee is someone decidedly more liberal – for a Republican – such as Gov. Mitt Romney or Speaker Newt Gingrich. Would that really be so bad?
