(Gunny G: What is A Crystal Set ?) ~ Crystal radio – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

…In 1922 the (then named) U.S. Bureau of Standards released a publication entitled Construction and Operation of a Simple Homemade Radio Receiving Outfit.[30]

This article showed how almost any family having a member who was handy with simple tools could make a radio and tune into weather, crop prices, time, news and the opera. This design was significant in bringing radio to the general public. NBS followed that with a more selective two-circuit version, Construction and Operation of a Two-Circuit Radio Receiving Equipment With Crystal Detector, which was published the same year [31] and is still frequently built by enthusiasts today.

FBI agent: I saw angels at 9/11 crash site « CITIZEN.BLOGGER.1984+ THE.GUNNY.G BLOG.EMAIL

November 19, 2012 5 comments

At the time of the disaster, Leonardi was the community-affairs coordinator for the FBI in its Pittsburgh division.

When she initially arrived at the crash site, she told the Associated Press that “the biggest thing for me is that that there were no bodies.”

“I’m used to crime scenes but this one blew me out of the water. It just looked like the ground had swallowed up” the plane, she noted.

“That’s when I started seeing like shimmery lights … and it was kind of misty and that’s when I first saw, like, the angels there,” Leonardi said. “And I didn’t say anything to the guys because you can imagine if I would have said, ‘I just saw angels on the crash site,’ they’d have called the office and they’d have said, ‘She lost her mind and tell her to go home.’”

FBI agent: I saw angels at 9/11 crash site

July 4, 2012 20 comments

A former police officer and FBI official who retired due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder claims she saw angels when she first responded to the Pennsylvania crash of hijacked Flight 93 during the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

“The angels started appearing on the perimeter of the crash site,” Lillie Leonardi said in an interview with Pittsburgh television station WTAE.

“They were dressed as if they were in warrior garb like a Roman centurion, and there were so many of them, you couldn’t see their faces.”

Leonardi has just published a book about her account, titled, “In the Shadow of a Badge: A Spiritual Memoir.”

In a video on her own website, she gives more details of what she saw at the crash site, explaining, “All of a sudden, I kept seeing this flicker of light. You saw all these angels manifest. One in particular, in front, that I knew, it was Michael. He knew I was there to do something. I just didn’t know what it was at that moment. He’s the conduit to God as far as I’m concerned. I’m then the conduit for other people to listen to what has to be said. And then it’s their choice to decide what to do.”

At the time of the disaster, Leonardi was the community-affairs coordinator for the FBI in its Pittsburgh division.

When she initially arrived at the crash site, she told the Associated Press that “the biggest thing for me is that that there were no bodies.”

“I’m used to crime scenes but this one blew me out of the water. It just looked like the ground had swallowed up” the plane, she noted.

Washington’s First Fourth (“Before he was America’s first president, George Washington was a spy and a soldier, serving on America’s frontier. His spying activities in advance of…”)

July 4, 2012 3 comments

Before he was America’s first president, George Washington was a spy and a soldier, serving on America’s frontier. His spying activities in advance of the French and Indian War brought him a national reputation and helped precipitate that great war. The reputation he built then secured a military command for him in that war which would eventually lead to international acclaim as America’s first commander-in-chief.

Ron Paul

Yep we’re slaves alright. Tax law being the most nefarious of the lot. Certainly, we are no longer living in a land of “justice”. . We have lots and lots of laws of “Control and Obedience” to the American Royalty erroneously called The Federal Government. We have King and Queen Obama and a bunch of Czar’s…Does anybody remember “America”? (the land of the free?) -J. Carlton, Calgary

Tell Obama: Start Attacking Problems; Not People! Is this ad airing in your market?

This ad popped up a couple of weeks ago on our local stations, particularly during the news and news programs, which covers most of my television viewing.

It shows clips of former President Clinton explaining the wrong headed nature of tax increases during an economic downturn.

They are interspersed with Obama clips touting tax increases and urging congress to “pass my bill.”

Change in Military Funeral Protocol… « ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984+ ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

September 23, 2011 2 comments

Today I was incensed at the conclusion of a traditional Serbian-Orthodox funeral for my beloved 85 year old uncle, Daniel Martich, who proudly served in the US Army during The Korean Conflict. During the committal service at a Pittsburgh cemetery the local military detachment performed their ritual, then folded and presented the American Flag to my aunt. As I’m sure you have witnessed during military funerals, a soldier bends to one knee and recites a scripted message to a surviving relative that begins ‘On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation, I wish to present you with this flag in appreciation for your husband’s service …’. However, today the dialogue was ‘On behalf of the Secretary of Defense and a grateful nation …’ After the service I approached the soldier who presented the flag to my aunt to inquire about the change in language. His response was “The White House notified all military funeral service detachments to immediately remove ‘the President’ and insert ‘the Secretary of Defense’. I couldn’t believe what I heard and the soldier smiled and said “You can draw your own conclusion sir but that was the order”. He, too, was ashamed of what he was required to say.

This president has taken off the gloves. My only response to this endless cesspool of Anti-American rhetoric dripping from his mouth is to borrow a phrase (with one minor change) uttered by another temporary Washington resident living in government housing: “Today for the first time in my adult life I was ASHAMED of my country”. I did not serve in the military but my love of country parallels that of people like my late uncle who bled Red, White and Blue.
