Let them ask What would Lee do? Kind of a dicey relationship with politics Don’t treat Alabama folks like they’re stupid! “Wondering what it’s coming to and how it got this far”–Guy Clark, Texas 1947 We’re here of course because Alabama has had kind of a dicey relationship with politics in recent decades. Luther […]
What force or guile could not subdue Thro’ many warlike ages, Is wrought now by a coward few For hireling traitor’s wages. The English steel we could disdain, Secure in valour’s station. But English gold has been our bane: Sic a parcel of rogues in a nation! But, pith and power, till my last hour, […]
Having written a number of books over the years, I was asked to write a review of a new book written by Howard L. Hibbard, who having volunteered to serve in Vietnam, came home like many of us, to countrymen who turned their backs on those who answered the call to duty. Whether the call […]
It’s been more than 50 years since American troops first landed in Vietnam, but to many who served, it seems like only yesterday.
“If I wasn’t there, if the Navy chose not to send me, they would have been all killed…there’s no question in my mind,” Vietnam veteran CAPT Paul Jacobs told NBC 7.
Are you disappointed with Donald Trump’s bellicose continuing with the deployment in Afghanistan? Well, if you are not; you should be. Predicting a non-ideological President, who prides himself on making pragmatic decisions, raises prognostication to a new level of mystical proportions. Instilling hope during an election campaign seldom translates into dynamic action on every pledge […]
If one is blind to the truthful account of history, understanding of current events will never break the mind controlled barrier of sanitized awareness. The globalists or whatever synonym name you choose personifies the forces behind the screens that shape the political, economic and cultural impositions on the world. China has not been immune to […]
World War II veteran Benjamin Cooper has been telling his war story for the last 27 years.
So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interests of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this, as regards Virginia especially, that I would cheerfully have lost all I have lost by the war, and have […]
It’s truly time to pin the blame on the parties/individuals responsible for, on a near daily basis, bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war in World War III. Because of the serious nature of their constant provocations, it is no longer acceptable for these mysterious, cowardly, and elusive figures to find peace and […]
Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs And towards our distant rest began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even […]
A remarkable 44% of the nearly 700,000 US military personnel who served in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War suffer from chronic symptom that include fatigue, headaches, joint pain, memory loss, neurological disorders, skin problems and respiratory disease.
I am not here because I am a great soldier. I am here because I served with great soldiers. This piece says more about why those of us who were Soldiers, or Sailors, or Marines or Airmen were as good as we were — not because we were great but because we served surrounded by […]
I could go on for pages about the G20 and the sad and shameful performance of the President/Manatee for Life, but why would I want to? The meeting with Putin and the orchestration of it so successfully by Lavrov and Putin to keep the competent out and the naifs in, the absurd fawning posture of […]
In a hugely symbolic victory of sound economics and practicality triumphing over stupid, backwards and idiotic sectarian violence, religious, and ethnic discrimination, the French oil refining company Total has successfully brokered a joint oil drilling/natural gas development deal with Qatar (Sunni dominated) and Iran (Shia dominated) as joint partners. Only a few weeks ago, Saudi […]
It is now a sign of success and well adjustment to be completely and totally sociopathic in the modern day developed first world. If one exhibits any semblance of humanity or compassion, one is considered altogether weak and not fully adapted to the consumer-driven culture of the current age, where not only are articles of […]
On Sunday two World War II veterans celebrated with friends and family at the Eagle’s Club in Merrill, as they were each surprised with a Quilt of Valor.
The People Must Be Leery Of Strengthening Terrorists Within Own Governments In Fight Against Terrorism
Although the vast majority of federal and state law enforcement can safely be declared to be decent, hard working, honorable men and women keeping law and order within their respective nations, the fact remains that there are also an awful lot of bad, indecent, cruel, power hungry, greedy, violent, dishonest, and criminal elements also within their ranks.
This ludicrous game of international “whack a mole” that the US/West/Russian intelligence and military services seem to be playing with international terrorism has to come to a resounding end, with the disgusting and revolting attacks on little girls attending an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester England yesterday. If this is not the final alarm bell […]
The state Senate last week passed a resolution that recognizes women in the Cadet Nurse Corps. during World War II as veterans and urges Congress to do the same.
The band played and the crowd cheered Friday evening as nearly 100 Vietnam veterans got off the bus at the Box Elder County Courthouse and were welcomed home from war, more than 40 years after it ended.
In a vain attempt to streamline global new world order governance, it is sometimes very tempting for “macro” world leaders to simply implement domestic and global policies which completely steam roll over the rights of their individual citizens, for purposes of ease of control and rule, rather than taking the time out to deal with, and rectify, the multiple internecine conflicts, fundamental denials of human and civil rights, race/religious/ethnic tensions, and the rampant injustices which plague their people.
After honor flights were stopped in 2011, Bill Casper, with TREA, started Free World War II Veterans Luncheon to help give veterans the recognition they deserve.
With the recent Syrian tomahawk missile attack by the Trump Administration after what appeared to have been dubious evidence of Syrian culpability, President Donald Trump lost a great deal of his loyal supporters and followers. This is because tens of millions of Americans (as well as hundreds of millions of people overseas) felt that he […]
An ad in the April 9, 1967, edition of The New York Times caught my attention and changed my life. “We appeal to North Vietnam
Still active and agile at 95, Duane Webster climbed one leg at a time into a World War II-era biplane at Boca Raton Airport on Thursday.
For the better part of the last 70 years, since the end of World War 2, the proverbial U.S. Deep State has gone through several changes/metamorphoses, starting with their initial inception as the literal NAZI intelligentsia, spies, medical doctors, scientists, eugenicists, social engineers, and other parasites of humanity when they were brought over to the […]
While watching the news unfold on the Mainstream Media (“MSM”) news networks all across the board today on March 22, 2017 (ironically enough with the cryptic dateline being “322″ for all the conspiracy theorists) relating to the new London “terrorist attacks” involving one lone nutjob who simply was armed with an “8 inch hunting knife” […]
APACHE BLUES: The Soldiers Unknown documents two filmmakers’ 8,000 mile journey across the country to separate fact from fiction in what they have been taught about the Vietnam War
It is quite obvious why various elements of the Deep State are vehemently against President Donald Trump’s temporary immigration ban and increased vetting procedures from certain countries in the world, and no, it’s not because they are “compassionate” or even give a damn about these people. This is obvious because these same Deep State elements […]
