Here’s one I received a few years ago from Marine Jim Ratliff, now deceased.

About four or five years ago when I was new to the net, I was soliciting stories for my Marine Vignettes/Tales Of The Corps webpages. I got an e-mail from Jim about that time, and he advised that he was then putting out a newsletter for H-3-5 News which was his old company from the Korean War days. His hands were full already w/the newsletter, but his newsletter contained many stories from H-3-5 Marines; and he invited me to post the stories to my webpages, if I would like to do so.

I e-mailed Jim back, “you bet, I want them!
I did post many of the H-3-5 stories, and they are still on Gunny G’s…for anyone who would like to see them. Jim had been successful in rounding up many of the Marines and Navy Corpsmen from his old H-3-5 days.

Press fear Obama private swearing in

December 7, 2012 15 comments

The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the president’s official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.

“Mindful of the historic nature of this occasion, we expect the White House will continue the long tradition of opening the President’s official swearing-in to full press access, and we as an organization are looking forward to working with the administration to make that happen,” Ed Henry, the Fox News correspondent and president of the White House Correspondents Association, said in a statement.

Who elected Obama?

December 7, 2012 7 comments

Many Republicans seem ready to agree to Obama‘s demands for tax increases — after all, elections have consequences, and he won, right?

 

Maybe, but before agreeing to anything, the GOP should probably look a little more carefully at just who elected Obama.

Dr. Robert Vanderbei, a professor of Operations Research at Princeton, developed the visualization shown above by combining Democrat blue with GOP red according to popular vote proportions taken at the county level and printing the result as a 3D map in which apparent vertical height is a stand-in for the number of voters counted.

Peter Lemiska — A Eulogy for America
Posted on November 12, 2012

By Peter Lemiska November 8, 2012 1:00 pm

The long-awaited election is finally over. Half the country is elated, and the other half is numb. During the weeks leading up to the election, Republicans had been encouraged by pollsters and political analysts, who confidently announced that no President in recent history won re-election with a national unemployment rate over 7.2 percent. They showed poll after poll indicating that a significant majority of Americans believe we are on the wrong track. They pointed out that uncommitted voters inevitably break for the challenger in the final moments. They said it’s all about voter turnout, and concluded Republicans were much more likely to show up at the polls.

This should not have been a close election. All things considered, Barack Obama should have been easily defeated, especially by a challenger so experienced and imminently competent as Mitt Romney.

Now that the contentious campaign is over, there will be calls for reconciliation and unity, but they will fall on deaf ears. The divisiveness fueled by four years of class warfare and petty politics is not likely to heal anytime soon. And now that Obama has been given four more years, unencumbered by political considerations, he is free to impose his radical ideology with reckless abandon. It will only expand the schism. Any hope of reuniting the country vanished with Tuesday’s election.

We all want a prosperous America, but there are dark days ahead for the country. Obamacare remains intact, and most Americans will be stunned at the resulting higher costs and lower quality of care. Small businesses will curtail hiring because of its impact. Scandals like Solyndra, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi will remain buried. More will occur…..

Who made our children become Communists?
Posted on November 13, 2012

Our Politicians and Pundits don’t seem to understand that in this last election in November, 2012 we lost America to the Communists. We were defeated by Women, Young People, Blacks, Gays, Seniors, Environmentalists and Hispanics! We only won some old people and most of the white men. We can’t win any more serious elections because we are outnumbered so wake up and get it straight. The Communists will just gain stength in the next 4 years even if we go over a fiscal cliff. They know they will have Oblahma and his band of crooks for four more years. They will be printing money and giving things to their people even if we go into a depression. Then they will stop and the pigs won’t be able to do anything because they will already have been caught in the trap, It is too late for them and for the rest of us!

The Communists will control;

1. The Communists will control all of America’s schools from K12 through Doctoral Thesis. Americas children will come out of the end of their schooling as good little Communists ready to toe the line for whichever politician is in charge.

2. They control most of the judges in America and if they get two more Justices on the Supreme Court they will control that august body.

3. They control all of the Unions who bargain for government employees. And they control many of the Unions bargaining for private employees

4. Communists own most of the…..

How U.S. Economic Warfare Provoked Japan’s Attack on Pearl Harbor – Robert Higgs – Mises Daily

December 7, 2012 Leave a comment

………..

 

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Cover of Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

Roosevelt had already led the United States into war with Germany in the spring of 1941—into a shooting war on a small scale. From then on, he gradually increased U.S. military participation.

 

Japan‘s attack on December 7 enabled him to increase it further and to obtain a war declaration. Pearl Harbor is more fully accounted for as the end of a long chain of events, with the U.S. contribution reflecting a strategy formulated after France fell. . . .

Badass Bomber Jacket – World War II

 

Why US Air Corps servicemen were allowed to wear such badass bomber jackets in WWII

 

In honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, Lisa Hix of Collectors Weekly has put together a fascinating and sobering article that both commemorates and explains why members of the US Army Air Corp were allowed to customize their bomber jackets to such outlandish and extreme degrees.

The Army, not known for its lax uniform standards, allowed their air-bound servicemen to decorate their jackets with pictures of scantily clad pin-up girls, favorite comic characters, lucky charms, and any other assortment of icons. The reason, says historian John Conway, may have something to do with the age of these soliders — but also the tremendous risks they had to endure………….

Allen West was on with Mark Levin last night in what I think was one of his better interviews. Not only did Levin put West on the spot and really press him on his future, but West weighed in on this debate over the ‘fiscal cliff’ saying that the House should be passing good policy and not negotiating with a “Marxist, Socialist, rigid ideologue” like Obama.

In the weeks immediately after the bombing, I believed the last thing that we should do was turn tail and leave. Yet the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics forced us to rethink our policy there. If there would be some rethinking of policy before our men die, we would be a lot better off. If that policy had changed towards more of a neutral position and neutrality, those 241 marines would be alive today.

Reagan’s sensible policy — “neutral position and neutrality” — should be followed today…. And troops now in Iraq should be brought home immediately. Almost 2,600 have been killed in Iraq, 10 times the number killed in Lebanon when Reagan decided to leave…..

…..At first, Reagan insisted that he wouldn’t cave in to the terrorist threat. Then he realized the best policy was to pull out the troops. Here’s how he explained it in his autobiography:

 

Perhaps we didn’t appreciate fully enough the depth of the hatred and the complexity of the problems that made the Middle East such a jungle. Perhaps the idea of a suicide car bomber committing mass murder to gain instant entry to Paradise was so foreign to our own values and consciousness that it did not create in us the concern for the marines’ safety that it should have.

“The FAA recently announced it wants to slow down drone integration into U.S. skies due to privacy concerns,” the EFF said. “We are hopeful this indicates the agency is finally changing its views.”

But the advocacy organization noted that the FAA documents don’t show any oversight of how drone flights could affect the privacy and civil liberties of Americans.

Something is very wrong in the world when the most dogmatic and inflexible president in recent memory can make unreasonable demands of his GOP budget opponents and yet be confident they’ll be blamed for the impasse.

 

It is past time Barack Obama be held accountable for his intentionally irresponsible fiscal policies that are guaranteed to take us into national bankruptcy. It is outrageous enough that he is steering us into insolvency, but it is unbearable that he’s fraudulently blaming the Republican Party for it to boot.

 

This is not a close call, and reasonable people, if they understood the facts, would not support Obama.

 

 

 

The problem is that so many people who trust him, inexplicably, look no further than his disingenuous statements and the liberal media’s slanted reporting, and the Republican Party leadership simply cannot seem to get its message across.

Fox-Murdoch offered Petraeus Prez Race Funding | Veterans Today

David PetraeusRupert Murdoch wanted to bankroll his presidential campaign

Reported today in the Telegraph

Editor’s Note: This comes as no surprise. The American Israeli Lobby and Israeli Intel keeps a close eye on any ranking generals who might have presidential ambitions. It’s part of their job.

For years they have been offered free junkets to Israel where they are ‘evaluated’ as to their usefulness and willingness to join the Israeli insider team to high post retirement positions.

But what really is the story here is a major network in cahoots with a top Israeli mega media wheel, being caught right in the spotlight of penetrating presidential campaign on the front end, and exposing that this is what they have been doing for years and years. Thank you Roger Ailes, just in time for Christmas…Jim W. Dean]

Read part 1 here.

 

Doug: Let’s take these in order. First:

 

Assassination of US citizens: “President Obama has claimed, as President George W. Bush did before him, the right to order the killing of any citizen considered a terrorist or an abettor of terrorism.”

 

Of course the very concept of terrorism is highly malleable, with over 100 definitions floating about – as we’ve discussed. But apart from that, it’s now accepted that the president and his minions have the right to kill almost anyone.

This conceit will get completely out of control after the next real or imagined major terrorist incident.

 

Louis: This reminds me of the extraordinary powers given to government agents to battle the War On Some Drugs – like the RICO statutes – which have now been turned against ordinary citizens who have nothing to do with the drug trade.

Our would-be dictator now wants to abolish Congress. As the Kenyan, and his minions, tries to bully our elected Congress into giving up their Constitutional responsibilities over the purse-strings, it is becoming more and more evident that we are headed for more than just a fiscal cliff. The clown from Kenya is looking for an all out shooting war with the citizens of this country.

Congress Considers Taxing Internet Sales

December 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Some Republicans are siding with Democrats around the proposition that online sales should be taxed. Now, Congress is adding a rider to the National Defense Authorization Act that would allow such a tax. The so-called Marketplace Fairness Act, which also has a House counterpart, the Marketplace Equity Act, will allow states to collect sales taxes on retailers who are located out of state.
