Book Recommendation: Strength & Honor by Terry L. Garlock
This excellent book was recommended to me by my friend and fellow Marine Vietnam vet "Del" Del Vecchio, whose story is first in the book. I regret it took so long to work it's way to the top of my reading pile. It's a wonderful collection of individual stories from vets, all with the clear ring of truth, that should be read by every Vietnam vet and the people who care about them, but everyone who wants to know what that war was truly like and by anyone interested in the realities of combat. Vets should be warned this book will arouse a great deal of emotion: laughter, grief, pride and, yes, anger. There is a terrific piece by a B-52 pilot. Having watched an Arc Light strike east of Khe Sanh, I appreciated learning how they were delivered. Garlock was a chopper pilot, and the book is heavy towards chopper stories, but I have no problem with that. Everyone who served in Vietnam has a special place in their hearts for the helicopter crews we depended on. WWII may have been the greatest generation, but America needs to know how great the generation they sent to Vietnam was--and those who mistreated vets on their return deserve to live in shame. There are many more stories out there that deserved to be collected and known.


Victory!  California Judge Rules "Jesus Prayers OK" 

Let Us Pray.  Almighty God, from John 14:13 we thank You for protecting Californians right to pray "in Jesus name," after the ACLU sued the city of Lancaster and lost, arguing prayer "in Jesus’ name" was illegal.  The atheists hate the Constitution and ban our free speech, but thank God U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer ruled for the people who voted 75% for Jesus prayers with Mayor Rex Parris, and rejected the ACLU’s phony claims of church-state separation.  God give another victory against the atheist complainers who vow to appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.  


Obama Executive Branch Openly Denigrates the Constitution,
Defies We the People, Defies the Judicial and Congressional Branches,
Refuses to Halt March To Marxism!
As recently argued in the 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, America is navigating uncharted waters in the Obama assault upon our Constitution and ordered liberty! We have no historical or legal precedent for the audacious denigration we are suffering upon our lawful institutions of responsible self-government by the Obama regime.
It is simply a fact that NO controlling legal authority has made a determination in these vital matters. If in the first instance Obama was never eligible under the Constitution to serve as president, then he sits in the Oval Office unlawfully and must be removed either by the Courts or by Congress. Further, if found ineligible, Obama has then never been a lawful president and full impeachment proceedings would cease to apply; he would thereby be compelled to resign or be removed from office as a usurper.


President Obama Doesn't Know the First Thing About Economics

Published July 16, 2011
As the Oscar buzz surrounding actress Meryl Streep keeps growing -- thanks to her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher, it’s worth remembering one of the real Iron Lady’s most famous observations: that any housewife could manage the British economy. 


Obama's Amateur Paint-by-Numbers Liberalism Driving the World Off a Cliff
By Kelly O'Connell

Did you happen to catch Obama’s recent budget speech where he advised the little man to step aside to allow the "experts" -— that is, the professional politicians -—to address the nation’s most serious problems? If you didn't swoon after that miracle of delusion, you may want to go get tested for terminal cognitive dissonance. Here is what Barack said when asked why the vast majority of Americans did not support a higher debt ceiling:

"Let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. You know, the public is not paying close attention ..."

Mr. Obama declared his "national emergency" 'bout two-years ago. 

Obama's "national emergency" is still in place. I've not read where it's been stood down.

I've been waiting for Mr. Obama to exploit his "national emergency" powers ever since.

How Will al Qaeda Mark the 10th Anniversary of 9/11?

July 15, 2011, 8:37 am

Last September, I wrote a column in the Washington Post asking how al Qaeda would mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I noted that a dangerous view was then taking hold in Washington that al Qaeda no longer has the intent or capability to repeat the devastation of that terrible day, and cited as an example Vice President Biden’s statement that “the idea of there being a massive attack in the United States like 9/11 is unlikely, in my view.”

Hitler could not have terrorized the world that resulted in the deaths of millions of people, without the willing participation and adoration of the German people.  A president in America cannot become president without the vote of the majority of the people.  A hero will not be recognized as a hero without a large number of people acknowledging his acts of heroism.  It is the people who grant power and status to others, or those that lead them.


QVC Cancels on Jane Fonda: Actress Blames ‘Well Funded and Organized Political Extremist Groups’

The multi-national televised home shopping network QVC has canceled an upcoming broadcast with Jane Fonda, a cancelation the actress is not too happy with. Fonda, who recently stared as a grumpy mother-in-law in Monster-in-law, had this to say in her blog:
“I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, ‘Prime Time,’ about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear. I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups. And that they did it without talking to me first. I have never shied away from talking about this as I have nothing to hide. I could have pointed out that threats of boycotts are nothing new for me and have never prevented me from having best selling books and exercise DVDs, films, and a Broadway play. Most people don’t buy into the far right lies. Many people have reached out to express how excited they were about my going onto QVC and hearing about my book.

No Obama! Not just because you say so!

Thinking about this just this morning in greater depth I think I have a greater insight to the bizarre nature of this deception.  And a great deception it is.  We have all been bamboozled.  In an effort to provide some clarification let me expand on the following.
If we the people are the only source of authorization of a government (Federalist #49 - information provided courtesy of Patriot James Seigfreid) and de facto was created without our consent then it is not lawfully installed.  Therefore all actions initiated by the de facto are unlawful and without authority.  They are null and void.
They only seem to be lawful due to a deception perpetrated by the members of the de facto government.  To assume things are legitimate because the citizens did not reject the actions is just plain nonsense.  This is the premise Obama has taken and by Congress failing to restrain him, he claims his right to persist.  Al Capone dressed in a tux is still Al Capone...a criminal!

Sadly, this is not true. It is a view from a fantasy world that does not actually exist.

The moment before a soldier takes his oath, he is a civilian. The moment after the oath is administered, the individual is a soldier, even before they attend boot camp.

Likewise, the trigger point of what is a "legitimate president" is the oath of office. Yes, Obama was an illegal candidate and an illegal president-elect. But then he was issued the oath of office and he sits in the Oval Office as the acting president of the United States. The oath is the trigger for official capacity.

A sitting president has constitutional immunity from criminal or civil prosecution and for good reason, even though this protection is damaging to the republic concerning the Obama regime, essentially protecting the enemy within.


"B-b-b-But It's HIS Fault"

With the understanding that, no matter what we do, say or forward, we will never ever change the mind of a committed ideologue, I hope you all will understand that that is not the intent of forwarding this on. We do so in the hope that it will help the 80% of math and fact challenged Americans to get a grip on reality thus enabling them to get off the fence under their own power rather than be violently pushed off by the coming onslaught of lying left wing media losers. 


For those who want further information about the topics covered in this blog, I recommend the following sites. I will add to this as I find additional good sources.

Obama's Strategy to Kill the Space Program
Excerpt: The Shuttle is now history. There is no near-term replacement. Mars is off the table. The NASA team that kept the U.S. in the game is being dispersed, with a small remnant retained for work on the Orion project, scheduled to fly by 2016, though we'll see inevitable "slips" from year to year. A favored liberal method of shutting down anything they are opposed to is the "replacement" technique. They insist on replacing the program in question with an alternative that is nowhere near as good but which mollifies the opposition. Then, once a little time has passed, they shut down the replacement while ridiculing opponents for trying to put over something so second-rate and useless. We saw this most recently with the F-22 v. F-35 debate. F-22 Raptor production was shut down on the grounds that the F-35 would act as a "replacement." Now, several years on, we're hearing that the F-35 is simply "not good enough." One of Panetta's first moves in the Department of Defense will be an attempt to shut it down. (For some reason, both the Republican Party and the conservative establishment have found it very difficult to wrap their collective minds around this process. The libs pull it time and again, and each time it comes as a surprise. I'm not sure why -- it doesn't strike me as being particularly complex.) (Fairness compels me to point out that while Obama is no supporter of manned space, the slow process of abandoning space began with the Congress (with help from both parties) back in the 80s, and has continued to this day. Then, the opposers condemned "the immorality" of the Strategic Defense Initiative [known to the MSM as "Star Wars"], as though there was something inherently evil about being able to protect ourselves with weapons that had no offensive function. It was largely the SDI program that bankrupted the USSR, and having vanquished its first foe without even being completed, doves in Congress made sure SDI never got finished. Surely no other country would ever possess an ICBM or IRBM capable of being armed with a nuclear warhead (except Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, India, Pakistan, and a few not-terribly-dependable allies). Thousands of years have taught us an important lesson in military history: hold the high ground. If nothing else, the rocks you throw will be going faster and hurt more when they hit if you start out higher than your opponent. If you need a pleasant lesson on this, see "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" by Robert A. Heinlein.  Space is the ultimate high ground, and we are abandoning it, at least for the next four to five years. Think about how much computers have changed in the past five years. Do you really want to give up that much edge in space? Ron P.)
