FOX News contributor and talk show host, has interviewed unidentified sources including doctors, nurses and counselors who say that while working with the new illegal immigrants at the Lackland AFB in San Antonio, TX., and he found that these civilian employees are being threatened, by the East German Stasi contingent of the Department of Homeland Security, with prison if they report how bad the health conditions are and how much at risk the American public is being placed under.

Here is an excerpt from the Starnes report: “We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness – all this stuff coming into the country,” she an unidentified nurse said. “We were very concerned at one point about strep going around the base.” Both the counselor and the nurse said their superiors tried to cover up the extent of the illnesses.

The Presence of UN Vehicles On American SoilSince late May, the country has been besieged with reports, pictures and videos of UN vehicles in our country.

FOX 5, San Diego, ran a report on Sunday morning, July 6th, in the early morning hours, which detailed sightings of UN vehicles being transported north of San Diego on Interstate 15 headed towards Riverside.

The story said that the vehicles were manufactured in the United States and were being transported for shipment overseas. Really?

……Due to Donovan’s recommendation that the United States establish a “commando military element,” independent of the Army and Navy, he submitted a Memorandum to the President Roosevelt stating its overall purpose and function.The following day, President Roosevelt, in non-committal language, indicated that Donovan’s proposal for development and deployment of a “commando military element” had merit and would see to it that the idea would be considered.

President Roosevelt initiated a letter to the Commandant of the Marine Corps Major General Holcomb for consideration of Donovan’s idea. President Roosevelt, how was constantly in communication with Prime Minister Winston Minister Churchill, had talked over the “commando concept,” which Churchill favored the idea.

One of the biggest questions that arose concerning this issue, was where would this notional organization be placed. In Donovan’s Memorandum to the President, he only noted the purpose of the “commando military element” and did not address where it would be placed or its organizational structure. However, a number of circumstances pointed directly towards the Marine Corps.

San Diego top cop boasts ‘we broke the NRA’ as some chiefs aim for gun control

January 17, 2013 14 comments

Newtown massacre pushes some police chiefs beyond enforcing the law, to advocating new ones

Lawmakers and mayors aren’t the only ones ratcheting up the debate on gun control. Some big city police chiefs are also stepping into the political arena, lobbying for tighter controls that they and their officers would then enforce.


mussobama (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

Take for instance San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne, who in an interview last week called for tougher gun laws and clearly chafed at the influence the National Rifle Association has held for years over the national debate.

Lansdowne suggested the Newtown, Conn., massacre may have undercut the gun lobby’s power and opened the door for new gun control legislation. “We broke the NRA,” Lansdowne boasted in an off camera portion of an interview with San Diego 6 and the Washington Guardian. When asked to expound, he demurred.

The White House plans to unveil its regulatory plan Wednesday for tightening gun controls, and Lansdowne threw his support behind President Barack Obama.

“I could not be more supportive of the president for taking the position he has,” he told KPBS in a separate interview. “I think it’s courageous with the politics involved in this process. But I think it’s going to eventually make the country safer and certainly safer for my officers that have to respond to these calls. “

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.

Another Good Reason To Avoid Hospitals by Jack D. Douglas (“You do not argue with doctors or police and you must be submissive in demeanor at all times. “)

July 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Doctors are like the police: they can be very helpful in some situations, but are inherently dangerous and should be avoided as much as possible. You do not argue with doctors or police and you must be submissive in demeanor at all times. They insist on being called Doctor, even when you have a doctorate and full professorship and are three times their age and they call you “Jack.” That name puts you down at the bottom of the totem pole on purpose. You must bow and scrape and say “Yassah, Maasah!” like the slaves did. But be aware they are very often very wrong and dangerous, like slave drivers. Slaves had a secret, underground of knowledge and wisdom and support against the Masters. You must do the same.

Republicans blast Pentagon for allowing military uniforms in gay pride parade

July 24, 2012 1 comment


Republican lawmakers are blasting the Pentagon‘s decision to allow troops to march in uniform at a San Diego gay pride parade last week.

Two senior Republicans on the House and Senate Armed Services committees said Tuesday that the Pentagon was out of line to grant the one-time exemption that allowed military uniforms in the parade.

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) said the Pentagon made a “dangerous exception” to its policy of not allowing military uniforms in parades. In a statement, the Armed Forces Readiness subcommittee chairman said that the decision was a made to advance the Obama administration’s social agenda.

“I am calling on the DOD to halt these dangerous exceptions to policy for political purposes. This decision was an outrageous and blatantly political determination issued solely to advance this Administration’s social agenda,” Forbes said in a statement Tuesday.

“Sadly, this is yet another violation in what has become a pattern of this Administration’s assault on the longstanding history of the Department of Defense as a nonpolitical organization,” he said.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) wrote a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta asking for an explanation behind making the exemption in light of the military’s “unambiguous regulations” to preserve its apolitical stance.

WASHINGTON, DC – DECEMBER 02: U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates prepares to testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee about the military’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy on Capitol Hill December 2, 2010 in Washington, DC. Gates announced earlier this week that a comprehensive study found that allowing gay men and women to serve openly in the United States armed forces presents a low risk to the military’s effectiveness, even at a time of war, and that 70 percent of service members believe that the impact of repealing the law would be either positive, mixed or of no consequence at all.

Agenda 21 is Cleverly Packaged Marxism | revisedhistory

By Al Benson Jr.

The title of this article may shock some folks who naively believe that anything the United Nations comes up with just has to be a boon to mankind. Sorry to burst your bubble, folks, but the United Nations is not, nor ever has been, what you were taught to believe it is. If you want to find out what the real game of the United Nations is I can recommend two books I have read that tell the truth about it—The Fearful Master by G. Edward Griffin and Freedom On the Alter–the United Nations Crusade Against God and Family by William Norman Grigg. I believe these can be obtained from American Opinion Publishing in Appleton, Wisconsin. You may not like what you read but it will be the truth and the truth is to be preferred over being comfortably ignorant.

Karl Marx

Cover of Karl Marx

If you want to begin to perceive where the Marxists are really at you need to get a copy of The Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx, the supposed father of communism. Actually this document, although written by Marx, was the work of a group called the League of the Just (Illuminati) and they just hired Marx, who was a second-rate revolutionary hack to write it out for them. His name did not even appear on the first edition. They allowed him to add it later.

Gunny G’s Marines History and Traditions: Parachute Accidents: Silk Chutes and Hard Fighting

June 14, 2012 7 comments

…..Three other men died in Marine Corps jumping accidents not related to the performance of the parachute. Two men drowned after landing in water; one at Norfolk, Virginia, and one at New River, North Carolina. The final fatality occurred when a New River trainee lost his nerve just as he approached the door of the plane.

He moved out of the line of jumpers, but his static line became tangled with the next man to go out. The non-jumper’s parachute opened while he was inside the plane and the billowing chute slammed him against the aircraft body hard enough to wreck the door and sever his spine.

The most unusual accident occurred near San Diego, California, on 15 May 1941. Second Lieutenant Walter A. Osipoff and 11 enlisted men of Company A were making a practice jump over Kearney Mesa. Everyone else had exited the plane and he threw out a cargo pack, which possibly tangled in his static line.

His parachute opened prematurely while he was still in the door of the plane; it billowed outside the aircraft and pulled him out, but the canopy and suspension lines tangled in the bundle of static lines streaming beside the transport. For a moment the cargo pack, Osipoff and his partially opened parachute were all suspended from the cable that held the static lines.

We spent endless hours with Brasso and steel wool rubbing ever so carefully the black enamel from the emblem, shining belt tips and buckles. Going to a local tailor to have the center cloth cut out of the garrison cap and spit polishing boondockers.

During the period of 48–49 they issued the cheapest, non-descript utilities, not the herringbone of yesteryear. We would press on the globe and anchor and USMC on the left pocket, also the utility cap. You just had to look ‘Salty.’

Residents of Minneapolis will be reminded this weekend that the government is determined to keep the bogus war on terror alive and also relive the overblown anthrax attack of 2001.

On Thursday, the U.S. Postal Service (or government-enforced monopoly) teamed up with the Minnesota Department of Health and announced they will be delivering empty pill bottles in the metropolitan area on Saturday.

“It’s the country’s first full-scale test for postal workers to distribute medicine in case of an anthrax outbreak or other medical emergency,” theAssociated Press explains. “Plans for similar practice runs are in the works in Boston, San Diego, Philadelphia and Louisville, Ky.”

Volunteers will be accompanied by cops during the drill. “The drill will take place Sunday in parts of Minneapolis, St. Paul, Golden Valley, Crystal and Robbinsdale. Volunteers and police officers will handle the delivery. The Health Department says more than 300 volunteers are trained for the task.”

TSA Treats 95-Year-Old Air Force Veteran Like a Terrorist $300 Stolen |

April 21, 2012 1 comment

Wheelchair-bound 95-year-old US Air Force veteran Omer Petti and his 85-year-old partner Madge Woodward were treated like terrorists by TSA agents at San Diego International airport, ostensibly so TSA workers could separate them from $300 dollars in cash which subsequently went missing reported the Daily Mail yesterday.

“Can you imagine an 85-year-old lady and 95-year-old retired Air Force Major in wheelchairs being treated like terrorists?” Petti asked the Detroit News’ Marney Keenan.

Given the TSA’s recent history – yes – veterans and old people are two of the federal agency’s primary targets and are routinely subjected to intense harassment and abuse.

After Petti had removed his shoes, belt, clothing and other accessories he was ordered by a TSA agent to place a money clip containing $300 in folded bills into its own separate bin.

After walking through a metal detector, both Petti and Woodward were patted down, with Woodward being taken to a separate room for extra “screening” due to the fact that residue from her nitroglycerin heart pills had set off an alarm……

“When I was patted down, I’ve never before been touched in every part of my body before,” Woodward said.

The U.S. Navy is beginning a worldwide video campaign to let sailors know about the dangers of “Spice”. This drug is often described as synthetic marijuana. The problem for the navy is that Spice comes from many manufacturers, varies widely in its purity and potency, and has unpredictable effects. The navy is particularly concerned about its use by crews of ships at sea. Sailors who are off-duty often find themselves being called to handle an emergency. That can be a problem if you’ve just done a bit of Spice.

Banner over San Diego calls for impeachment

November 12, 2011 6 comments

San Diego’s own Impeach Obama Tea Party has joined forces with the city’s Stop Obama Now!! – San Diego and a flying banner company to call for the removal of Barack Obama from office.

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.

Redwood to Deadwood: a 53-year old conservative dude hitchhikes around America. Again.

October 9, 2011 Leave a comment

People don’t hitchhike anymore.

At least not like the glory days of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s when hitchhiking was a popular, fun and even a safe thing to do.

But it went away. Colin Flaherty wondered where it went.

So this San Diego writer set out on three-month adventure with a pack and an extended thumb to try and find out.

Obama Heads West to Collect Campaign Cash, Bash GOP

September 25, 2011 Leave a comment

SEATTLE — President Barack Obama charged Sunday that the GOP vision of government would “fundamentally cripple America,” as he tried out his newly combative message on the liberal West Coast.

Aiming to renew the ardor of Democratic loyalists who have grown increasingly disenchanted with him, the president mixed frontal attacks on Republicans with words of encouragement intended to buck up the faithful as the 2012 campaign revs up.

“From the moment I took office what we’ve seen is a constant ideological pushback against any kind of sensible reforms that would make our economy work better and give people more opportunity,” the president said at an intimate brunch fundraiser at the Medina, Wash., home of former Microsoft executive Jon Shirley.

About 65 guests were paying $35,800 per couple to listen to Obama at the first of seven fundraisers he was holding from Seattle to Hollywood to San Diego on Sunday and Monday. The three-day West Coast swing, ending Tuesday in Denver, offered him the chance to try to reassure some of his most liberal and deep-pocketed supporters.

The trip comes as Obama has shifted from focusing on compromise with Republicans on Capitol Hill to calling out House Speaker John Boehner and others by name. The president has criticized them as obstructionists while demanding their help in passing his $447 billion jobs bill.

Subtle acts reshape military society amid [DADT] repeal

September 17, 2011 1 comment

Night-long celebrations will mark the final countdown to the historic end of the U.S. military’s ban on openly gay troops, and even more partying will take place once it is lifted Tuesday. But in many ways change is already here.

Countless subtle acts over the past months have been reshaping the military’s staunchly traditional society in preparation for the U.S. armed forces‘ biggest policy shift in decades. Supporters of repeal compare it to the racial de-segregation of troops more than 60 years ago.

For some gay service members, the fear of discovery and reprisals dissipated months ago when a federal court halted all investigations and discharge proceedings under “don’t ask, don’t tell,” while military leaders prepared the armed services for its end.

Several have come out to their peers and commanders.

A few have since placed photographs of their same-sex partners on their desks and attended military barbecues and softball games with their significant others. In San Diego, about 200 active-duty personnel — both gay and heterosexual — made up the nation’s first military contingency to participate in a Gay Pride march this summer, carrying banners identifying their branches of service. An Army soldier had tears, saying she was touched by the thousands cheering them on, after hiding her identity for so long.
