I just love this man's strong stance against the cancel culture. He is such a strong advocate for Jesus. Someone who God is speaking through to be sure!

Donations / Everett Hatmaker
« on: September 15, 2020, 12:07:53 PM »
The Hatmaker family just lost their dad. One of the boys is the quarterback of the Walton/Verona H.S. team my son plays for. Saturday night while at the game, I learned the quarterback's dad had been killed in a tragic motorcycle accident less than 24 hours earlier. The boy refused to recuse himself from the game and played all four quarters.
I was smitten hearing the game announcer telling us of the tragedy while I was looking at his son standing there, literally with his "Game face" on.

Well, a Go fund me came up:

...and we just donated. I may have donated using my name and not "real-man" because I just don't know the proper procedure, but I will make an attempt to correct that.

FYI, and prayers for the family.

CIEMR / This election will be delegitimized

This election will be delegitimized

A CIEMR by Don Harward

Call it a prediction, and I’ll a little ill at my stomach just thinking about it. But I am a soldier, always have been. And we warriors have no time for fluff, we look at the facts. Those of us who have weathered a storm or two have observed the human condition and people’s reaction to various stimuli and witnessed the results. Sadly, humans are not the best with regards to character, but that is not our fault. Yea, not our fault

Rewind back to a single event a very long time ago. A woman was standing in the shadow of a tree. This tree had a special fruit. The fruit was both physical and spiritual I would suppose because it could be eaten and provide its nutrients, but it also contained something forbidden. The bad part, of course was the knowledge of good and evil. The woman was seduced by a crafty one. Better than Hillary, more practiced than Biden, and more believable than all the charlatans at hand on than any of our “News” channels today. He of course in his natural form of a serpent was the devil. He said, hey, try this, it’s really good, and why is God keeping the good stuff from you and your husband anyway?”

So we know the story, but few actually believe it and therein lies our greatest problem. We really don’t believe all that God-Jesus thing really happened. Now I would caution you right here about just blowing off the whole Jesus salvation thing. Do you know what the only unforgivable sin is?? Do ya? God will not forgive those who did not accept his son as their Lord and Savior, and that right there my friend is a fact!

So, you be warned, lets continue. I hope I am reaching a bunch of folks who are on the fence over what is going on with the election, because you will need to find the “OOMPH” to make the leap to the right before or after the election when the real fireworks will likely start. If not, you may be swallowed up by the serpent before you know it. You might discover in a split second when you were not expecting it that you are experiencing zero blood pressure (A phrase often used by my SEAL friends who deliver that condition for a livin’) and your spirit is not climbing toward a light, but rather descending toward another kind of light.

OK, sorry for the right turn toward the divine here, I guess God had a different idea for where my fingers were going to fall on this rather used keyboard, but I was thinking I was going to write about where I see all this political juxtapositioning heading. Biden is assembling an enormous legal team. He reportedly has hundreds of lawyers, some ex-solicitor generals and a lot of dirty (Read: Soros) money. He is calling this assemblage a free election protection coalition. Bull crap! He is a liar and a deceiver. He wants to use attorneys to prevent election corruption? Let’s recall for a moment how effective attorneys really are. Remember OJ Simpson’s murder trial? There was like a seven out of a million chance that his DNA did not match that of the murderer, and I guess that was good enough, he was acquitted. I suppose there is about the same percentage of possibility that I am the queen of England.

With the liberal dispersion of ballots being sent all over Mexico, err, I meant Nevada, we know that state will report reliable voting results, right? Isn’t that Harry Reid’s stomping grounds? You know Harry, that stalwart of integrity who was once the senate majority leader? Yep that man is incapable of the truth, err, I mean lying and cheating.

Election fraud is going to show up in a really big way. We will not know who we elected and the Electoral College may not be able to cast their votes as a result, for some time. Those votes which are supposed to represent the majority of the people from their portion of the America could therefore be skewed. It’s “Gi-Go” as we say in aviation sometimes. With respect to entering data into the navigation computers, garbage in=garbage out. Anyway you shuffle and deal it, the thing is a mess. The Don predicts that circa the Florida vote count between Bush and Gore in the way back, this whole country’s voting results will be as wrong as two left feet. And what would result from all that?

It sets the stage for the nastiest play in the left’s evil playbook. First the ANTIFA’s and BLM’s and ZLM’s and “Q’s” and whoever will pitch a fit. Pitch a few other things as well like bricks and firebombs. That in itself will create a nationwide “Black Panther Party” borrowing from the movie “Forrest Gump.”
Now while all that is going on the accusations and counter accusations are going to be flying. I suspect a Covid-19.2 will show up like a dash of habanero pepper sauce in your buddy’s taco that you placed there while he was in the bathroom. What, me? No, sir, Colonel G, I never did that…

So we have all that, and let’s not forget the setup here. Mom and pop’s neighborhood bistro has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel and is barely hanging on. Well with all this instability, we can bet the stock market will not react negatively, right? I think that darned thing will fall off the proverbial cliff. Oh, let’s take a soldier break here for just a moment. Remember the Covid/toilet paper thing? Prudence my friendly sheeple, prudence. Stock up on some foods, some of this and that, maybe a full tank of gas, maybe an emergency radio, a heat source, generator, and if you think you’ll need it, get some money out of the bank. I think I’d be ready for an extended hurricane/blizzard season, and I really, really hope I’m wrong about that, but I fear I am not.

But for those who really know their Lord and Savior keep this precious Psalm close at hand, in the Psalm 91 The Lord says:

1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.a
2I will say to the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3Surely He will deliver you
from the snare of the fowler,
and from the deadly plague.
4He will cover you with His feathers;
under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the calamity that destroys at noon.
7Though a thousand may fall at your side,
and ten thousand at your right hand,
no harm will come near you.
8You will only see it with your eyes
and witness the punishment of the wicked.
9Because you have made the LORD your dwelling—
my refuge, the Most High—
10no evil will befall you,
no plague will approach your tent.
11For He will command His angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.

It will take a perfect storm to destroy this free nation and we really can’t be set up any better than right now. Only blindness to what is going on is preventing people from seeing the gathering clouds and packs of wolves.

Let’s play around a bit here. What if there is massive election fraud on an unprecedented scale? What would our America first, America loving president do? What if the riots build to a fever pitch, not in five but five hundred cities and towns? What if the people react and fight back and there are running battles with many causalities on either side and they are happening in thirty spots at a time? What if at the properly timed moment the Covid revisits us? Or possibly a new more lethal version of our new respiratory resident?

What if the thing is so well planned and executed that the fabric of control starts to stretch to the breaking point, what then? Would this president declare martial law? I don’t know, but I would.

Should that happen then the left could say that they were right, he is Hitler, and thinks he is king. Then what, it all suddenly gets better? With rioting and communications breaking down are the trucks still safely running on our highways? Are the grocery store shelves still awash with their usual bounty? Not a chance. Americans are like embryos supported by a thin, fragile lifeline and any interruption to that thin vessel and the embryo dies. So you just grab the old .22 and off to the mountains to survive you go, that’s your plan, right?

We’re in a fight. The left who is really a masked and perfumed snake with lipstick is out for blood this time. This is not a presidential election we face, but a fight for the very existence of our republic. We could win the day, but there is no flippin’ way we do so without standing our ground and fighting. If you continue to be docile, safe, politically correct, and keep your mouth shut and do nothing then nothing is what you will end up with.

God bless America
May God protect our good leadership
And expose those who are not

Faith Discussion / California leading the way (Over the clift!)
« on: September 13, 2020, 10:46:50 PM »
SACRAMENTO -- California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday signed a law that would give judges a say on whether to list someone as a sex offender for having oral or anal sex with a minor.

The bill would expand the discretion currently granted judges in statutory rape cases and was promoted as bringing fairness under the law to LGBTQ defendants.

The current law, in place for decades, permits judges to decide whether a man should be placed on California's sex offender registry if he had voluntary intercourse with someone 14 to 17 years old and was no more than 10 years older than the person.

But that discretion only applied to a man who had vaginal intercourse. The new change permits judges to use that same discretion when the case involves voluntary oral or anal sex.

The measure won't apply when a minor is under 14, when the age gap is larger than 10 years, or when either party says the sex wasn't consensual.

The bill was introduced by state Sen. Scott Wiener, a San Francisco Democrat.

The law ends discrimination "by treating LGBTQ young people the exact same way that straight young people have been treated since 1944," Wiener said in a statement, adding: "Today, California took yet another step toward an equitable society."

Equality California, a non-profit civil rights group that co-sponsored the bill with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, also applauded Newsom's signing.

"If we want a California for all, then we need a justice system that treats all Californians fairly and equally - regardless of who they are, what they look like or whom they love," Executive Director Rick Chavez Zbur said in the statement released by Wiener's office.

The bill passed the Assembly and Senate on split votes, with some members objecting to what they saw as an easing of punishments against those who have sex with minors.

"I cannot in my mind as a mother understand how sex between a 24-year-old and a 14-year-old could ever be consensual, how it could ever not be a registerable offense," Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, said before the bill's passage. "We should never give up on this idea that children should be in no way subject to a predator."

Online critics had falsely blasted the measure as legalizing pedophilia.

The bill was supported by civil rights groups as well as the California District Attorneys Association and California Police Chiefs Association.

Intel / Roger Stone suggesting Martial Law following November balloting
« on: September 13, 2020, 09:58:57 PM »
To be taken with a bit more than a grain of salt. Talk like this is more of a foreshadowing of things to come. Pay attention to the details, the intel folks always say, and many of them point to widespread unrest, uncertainty, and so forth. That will translate to a skittish market, reluctance to invest and a general pause in business. Money likes to wait on stability, and money is tied to everything. Being prepared with extra everything well prior to November would be prudent. Couple all that with a possible second Covid scare and what is looking like a hyper active hurricane and storm season, and our immediate future is very uncertain indeed



Pardoned Roger Stone is making extraordinary calls for President Donald Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act if he loses on Election Day.

"I don't want to overplay the facts here, but if somebody would study the president's authority in the Insurrection Act and his ability to impose Martial Law if there's widespread [fraud], if he will have the ability to arrest [Facebook founder Mark] Zuckerberg, to arrest [Apple CEO] Tim Cook, to arrest the Clintons, to arrest anybody else who can be proven to be involved in illegal activity," Stone, political trickster, told Alex Jones' "InfoWars" on Thursday.

"I do not advocate preventive detention, but people who commit crimes and think they can continue to get away with it, because we have a two-tiered justice, are just wrong."

Stone pointed to mass mail ballot fraud and said the Republicans leaders in the states "are not prepared for this election legally."

"There's going to be widespread, obvious, blatant, flagrant illegality," Stone continued. "The authority exists to stop that. It will have to be used, if necessary.

"I'm not jumping the gun, but I will just tell you: The votes from Nevada should not be counted. They are already flooded with illegals. If Harry Reid is involved, take Harry Reid into custody and charge him."

Harry Reid was the Democrat Senate majority leader during the Obama administration and is now retired in Nevada.

"This is not complicated and it is 100% legal," Stone concluded.

"Force will have to be met with force. That's the way this is going to have to work. It's really unfortunate. I'm not an advocate of that. I'd like to have an honest election in which the real winner takes office. The real winner will not be Joe Biden. There is too much voter fraud already going on in Florida and Nevada."

CIEMR / We are witnessing history in the making
« on: September 12, 2020, 11:33:02 AM »
We are witnessing history in the making

A CIEMR

By Don Harward

What we are witnessing right now is historic, unprecedented, and flat out amazing! It is especially exceptional when witnessed through the lens of scriptural end time’s knowledge.

President Trump is in my humble opinion a man who was created for such a time as this. It seems he was crafted up and placed into the office of the President by God himself. It seems we are witnessing the set up for the second coming of Jesus and all that business that is spoken of in Revelations, Daniel and some other places in the bible.

We have what, decades of negotiations between Arab states and Israel to find some way for them to coexist (And btw, I do not like to use that word). But every effort from what must have been hundreds or possibly thousands of diplomats have failed. But in the span of just 29 days we have not one, but two peace deals between Israel and a Muslim state! We even have the much hated president of the United States nominated for the Nobel peace prize. And Mr. Trump actually did something, and wasn’t just a neighborhood organizer who went slightly above what a child has to do to become an Eagle Scout.

President Trump can solidly add this to his quiver of arrows used to kill unrighteousness, injustice, hypocrisy, and evil. Way to go Sir! And in stark contrast we have Speaker Pelosi making a statement saying “Whoopti-do, what about the thousands dying of Covid?” Yea Ms. Pelosi, those thousands who were run over by a truck and then later died of Covid 19! Liar! You can’t even acknowledge the incredible courage shown by leaders both Arab and Jewish to run against the grain and get this thing done!

We have a man who just came out against the 1619 education initiative which serves to rewrite the historical perspective of the founding of the new world which became the early Untied States. Let’s get this straight. The new world colonies offered the possibility for freedom. They offered a challenge to pit oneself against all odds and scratch out a new life and reap the rewards from the hard work. For many it brought prosperity to people who essentially had no future. The 1619 dialogue is an attempt that seeks to remake the United States into a hellish place where slavery was the bedrock upon which rich whites would find their fortune. This rewriting of our history is a play right out of the communist manifesto.

I say bull crap to all that, and apparently our president agrees. He is saying he will defund schools which adopt this new interpretation of the historical record. Good for you sir for calling out these liars! He flat out said we are a nation founded on principals that honor God. Our president believes America is a place where men and women did something extraordinary and created a true golden land which loves peace, albeit through strength. He recognizes we seek to give everyone a chance to be “all you can be” to borrow on the old Army recruiting theme.

The left has none of that. They are running plays right out of the communist play book, and should Mr. Trump lose the election we will devolve into a communist state. I would have said socialist state, but I care not to fool around with tenths of a percent. If communism is akin to being served a bowl of horse manure for supper, then socialism is simply the same bowl with a bit of milk poured on top.

Trump offers a growing economy, Biden wants to tax corporations $4,000,000,000,000. Trump says we are a great nation, Biden thinks we are a place where hatred, racism, and division run rampant. Trump says welfare, after decades of its application has failed. Biden would expand the concept to give even more to those who produce nothing. A Biden America would be apologizing to everyone circa Obama apology tour number two, but a Trump America openly declares, we are a great superpower who seeks to trade and to get along with other nations and assist everyone in their time of need. We do so from a position of strength and we only ask for fairness.

Mr. Trump is a real man. He does not apologize for what he or we are, which is exceptional. He understands that when bargaining, one needs to not just appear strong, but must actually be strong. This Biden candidate is weak and appears to actually be suffering from dementia. He changes his rhetoric to fit with the most recent polling results. He is anything but steadfast. Anyone see him answer the student’s question the other night on a televised Q&A? The student asked the question, then Biden seemed to wait on a teleprompter response. He even said something to the writer behind the screen to “get along with it” or something like that. He is but an empty shell, and who exactly is writing his script? Who exactly will be running the oval office should Americans elect him?

This is the moment folks. God is watching. 2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

There couldn’t be a greater difference between the two parties. I wonder if there ever been so great a difference. One side clearly believes in communism, the other in our great free country. One side seems to be Christian or in more general terms, followers of God, and the other could care less and actually seems to worship the devil through their abhorrent acts. One side believes in peace, the other in mayhem. One party wants strong country borders, the other wants to dismantle them. One believes in the principle of work and reward and a lifetime of saving leading to a comfortable retirement. The other wants someone else to pay its people for doing nothing at all.

One party would overturn Roe vs Wade and the other party celebrates and even boasts of a woman’s right to have as many abortions as she wishes, like picking bad grapes out of a bunch you just harvested. We have a president who stops rioting in 24 hours standing in stark contrast to several democratic governors and mayors who have allowed lawlessness to continue for months.

Those who know the early history of the United States will recall that President George Washington as his first official act after being sworn in as president was to kneel and pray to God. He concentrated our nation to be one that always sought to follow the principals given from the kingdom of God and that God would bless, protect, and prosper us. President Washington continued to offer “That if we ever turned away from God, that the Lord on high would remove his protection.”

With respect to the last statement, which street do you feel we have turned down? Or perhaps we are at the intersection about to flip on the turn signal. Which way are we going to go, left turn to the on ramp toward a hellish existence or do we turn right, and get right with a living God? Do we rite this left leaning ship we are on? Do we have enough of you left with enough courage to call out what is wrong, and take action to set things right once again?

Left… (I keep thinking of the phrase “left behind”), or right toward righteousness? We really are at the meeting point where a physical life and the spiritual intersect for a brief moment. We really are about to do something of enormous consequence. Our choices right now will eliminate us as a nation of consequence and likely lead us into a civil war, or we could straighten our collective spines and truly become the great nation under God that a president from long ago prophesied and consecrated?

Where are you going? Really, where are you headed? Toward Glory and eternal life in God’s everlasting kingdom. Will you straighten things up? Will you support strong men and women who are fighting your battles and those of your children for you? Or will you decide that you just don’t like the orange man? Will you turn a blind eye to the forces constantly at work to destroy truth? Will you jump out in support of our police or buy into the lie that they are racists who quietly target minority men? Can you say I am willing to give up everything just because this president offended you? If you do, don’t plan on calling on my help. I do not separate my politics from my life. You show up as a supporter of abortion, think America is racist, and cops are bad, and I will turn my back on you. You come to me when that hatred ignites into a fire that is burning you up, and I am not going to do anything to quench the flames. In my view you made your bed, so sleep in it.

When I pull a weed out of my bed several things happen. First the flower bed looks better. The flowers have more sunlight and nutrients to flourish upon now that the weed which does nothing is removed. The weed dies. After being cast into a pile of other weeds, it decomposes and will someday be reused to nourish the flowers it once sought to take over. I never have a second thought about the weed. Whether it withers or burns up in a fire is of no consequence to me. It is but a weed.

May God reign victorious over this America and may the serpent and his evil plans be made visible to us and be slayed by America’s good people.

NFL Opening Night Marred by Protests as One Team Boycotts Anthem

By Bryan Chai

Published September 10, 2020 at 6:10pm

And they’re off!

The 2020-2021 NFL season has officially begun, and scores of football fans couldn’t be more excited.
Well … maybe some fans could be more excited.

The inaugural game of the new NFL season has begun with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans, but somehow, even before a single second of actual on-field play occurred, there already appeared to be controversy afoot.

First, the Chiefs revealed social justice messages — “End Racism” and “It Takes All of Us” — that were prominently featured in their stadium’s end zones:
Perhaps more controversially, the Chiefs and Texans each partook in their own respective form of protest during the playing of the national anthem.

The Texans opted not to come out for the national anthem at all. They instead chose to stay in the locker room during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” When they did come out, there were audible boos.

Several Chiefs players, including the reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, linked arms. One Chiefs player, Alex Okafor, knelt during the anthem and raised his right fist.

The Walkaway Campaign is hosting a march & large event at Sylvan Theatre in Washington, DC from October 2-4 with many high-profile, conservative VIPs speaking & attending.

 

Obviously not associated with but concurrently occurring during our event, ANTIFA is planning their “Siege on the White House” in DC from September 17 - November 5th.

 

Bikers for Trump have agreed to provide physical security, but we are seeking cool-headed veterans to help with physical security, intelligence/surveillance and to serve as team leaders for small security & intelligence cells at the event.

 

If you believe that your oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign & domestic never expired, we’re looking for you.

If you’re sick of standing by and watching as Marxist groups attempt to attack, harass & intimidate other Americans from expressing their First Amendment rights, we’re looking for you.

If you’re looking for glory or a payday, this ain’t for you.

 

We are seeking honorably discharged military veterans for the following volunteer positions:

Physical security
Team leaders for security cells
OSINT before and during the event to determine threats
Low-visibility teams to identify potential agitators in & outside the event

CIEMR / Who in their right mind would vote for Biden?
« on: September 06, 2020, 12:37:38 PM »
Who in their right mind would vote for Biden?

I am asking a literal question here, who in their right mind, who is not crazy, or an outright communist would vote for this man?

When I “get into it” with a liberal, most of them end up with saying, they just do not like Donald Trump. I suppose to them that is reason enough to make them want to gamble with the greatest republic that has ever existed on the earth. I have to wonder why such people are allowed to vote in the first place. Like my daughter did when she first turned eighteen and voted for Obama. I asked her why she would do such a thing. She responded, “I think he’s cute.” And that right there is the problem with a democracy where everyone is allowed to vote. Everyone has a loaded pistol and can shoot it whenever they want. Some will chose, after studying its function, to check out its accuracy on a range and others will discharge it at a crowded shopping mall.

Joe Biden is quietly endorsed by the Chinese communist party! He was cited by a notable publication as being the candidate that would be easier to deal with by China. That is the same China that has built military bases in the South China Sea in international waters. It is the same China which has invested heavily in submarines, and a real blue water navy to project power. The same China that is building a massive railroad throughout Africa, and oh by the way, the track gage of those rail lines only fit railroad cars of Chinese manufacture.

Joe Biden supports redirecting money from police to fund failed social programs. Hell, he seems as inept and as stupid as the governor of Washington and the mayor of Portland. Everywhere you find a major municipality governed by democrats, the murder rate has doubled, tripled, even increased by 600% or more. Are they about law and order or just a bunch of kowtowing buffoons? I think the latter, come on, it’s obvious. Democrats, or more accurately the liberals are into never ending social experimentation and none of it has ever worked! All too recently Obamas overhaul of the military had Transsexuals standing formation. It had infantry soldiers wear high heels for training so they could appreciate what a woman has to go through. Pathetic! They decreased a 600 ship US Navy down to less than 300. In fact the amount of military the Obama/Biden administration defunded and set to mothballs was greater than the entire military of France and part of Spain.

Let’s continue. Biden said he will close down the economy a second time. With hundreds of thousands of businesses tittering on the edge, they need to reopen and remain open or they will fail. And whether you realize it or not, small businesses are the US Economy’s main engine and tax base. Close down again and we will be in a deep, deep depression that we may not be able to recover from.

Biden plans to levy a $4,000,000,000,000 tax on corporations. Those corporations are mobile you know. Trump brought many of them back to America with the tax cuts, and those companies coming back brought a lot of high paying jobs here. Reverse the tax situation and they will uproot and leave.

Did you know that during the Obama/Biden years something like 70,000 factories that were in the United States closed their doors and moved to China and Mexico? They loaded up their expensive machines and moved them permanently to Chinese soil! And once we taught them how to operate the things, they kicked our people out and took over. That is the theft of technology that is so often discussed. Expect that tide to go back out under a China friendly Biden government.

Only this time it will be for the record. China has built a huge military who can enforce their policy. They have for a couple decades now, purchased as much as a hundred pounds or more of Gold, Silver, Platinum and other precious metals a day! They are trying to make the Yen the dominant currency of the planet. If they do that, then our dollar which is actually nothing more than paper that is guaranteed to work by the good faith of the Federal government will lose its power to purchase anything. Now I will tell you that the Chinese will not play too hard here because the US is the primary purchaser of Chinese goods, but they will certainly use a weighted club to control us from that point forward. They will insist and usher us ever more toward their communist ways.

Biden supports abortion, we republicans do not. He is OK with harvesting tissue from fetuses and murdering them wholesale. No Christian should ever vote for anyone who agrees with that one simple point.

The media likes to say Trump is a womanizer. But they don’t seem to point out that Biden is a sexual predator who goes after not only women but even children. The fool does it in public, or do you really think he is just a bit too affectionate? Tell you what, if I was a bit too affectionate and grabbed women’s breasts for photo ops, I have to believe my wife or some husband would blot my eye or worse.

I could literally go on and on about a Biden who has no real direction, who may well be mentally incompetent, and is very likely controlled by nefarious calculating men is not someone we want to even consider. But I’ll rest here in the interest of brevity and hope, no pray that reason and good sense overcomes people when they come to that defining moment when they push the button that will either save our nation or send us over the cliff and destroy freedom, which will ultimately mean war here in these grand lands.

Please choose carefully

General Vehicle Related Discussion / 2020 Nissan Titan V8
« on: September 01, 2020, 11:21:30 AM »
Yesterday, I bought a new Nissan Titan for my wife.

I had purchased a Toyota 4-Runner for her last Christmas, and we used it on vacation and it has been her daily since then.

But then things changed. We decided she wasn't going to participate in the corporate world any longer and she struck off on her own. Her concept was to shop the wholesale outlets selling off unwanted merchandise for a very low price, then resale all of that on a virtual storefront.

In a few words, it has worked, and really taken off. She makes from 30%-50% gross on each sale and has almost parked her 4-runner and uses the boys GMC Canyon all the time.

She has wanted to buy an old 3/4 ton truck, but we have ZERO available parking at the casa, so we started talking about selling the 4-Runner and purchasing a truck.

I went over to the Toyota store and I was flabergasted to discover that mega dealership who normally has an inventory of trucks well over 100, had only one new truck in inventory!!!!!

One!!!

So it occurred to me that this might be a supply problem, and I was right.

I tested the waters by advertising my 4-Runner to dealers who responded vigorously.

OK, a sale/trade of the Toyota might actually be feasible, so I started researching 1/5 ton trucks.

The ford F150 was nice, and so was the Ram. Either of those were overpriced in my view. The Chevy was problematic. She will not accept cloth seating, it needs to be leather. So I was looking at a LTZ or a High Country, both 60K-70K trucks, but nice. Toyota didn't have anything anywhere, so they were out. I have never researched a Titan so I did, and wow, I was impressed. 400HP V8, decent mileage, great everything and the thing which sealed the deal for me, a 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty!!!!!!!!

Then when I started looking, I found there was a decent inventory and Nissan was offering $4000 incentive money, and $500 more for my veteran status. I found a dealership that really wanted to buy my 4-Runner and offered an additional $4,750 discount from a $63,000 sticker on their top of the line offering.

Sound good? It was and in a very unexpected way. We test drove and liked it and made an offer. We were close but not there. Kat and I decided not to budge and instead just walk away and drive across the street to the Chevy dealer. We told the Nissan folks that we respected their position, but we decline and would try and make a deal 100 feet away.

That's when things got interesting. The GM came out. He was smiling and mentioned that there was a good reason to shop late on the last day of the month. He said he would meet out criteria which meant the dealership would have to go $2,700 negative to make it happen. Now these are good people, and at first I said no to their offer. I don't want to hurt anyone with a bad deal, my sense of fairness just won't allow it. And as the old phrase goes, "And now for the rest of the story."

That dealership at 1700 on the 31st of August had sold 91 cars that month. The GM explained that their dealership was set up on a bonus funding system with Nissan and to qualify they needed to sell 93 cars. My deal was on the table and a nurse across the showroom was about to say yes to her Sentra purchase. He told me that if he hits 93 cars by midnight, the dealership would get a check for $200,000, and the owner really wanted to get that check. So he was willing to all but buy my Titan just to get this done. He said that the team felt we were the right kind of people and felt good that we should be the benefactors, so he asked if we would just please accept their deal.

We felt the sincerity of the moment and accepted.

We got a discount of $9750 off the MSRP on the new Titan. They gave us $41,500 for our 4-Runner. Please note that I only paid a tad over $43,000 for it back in December, so I have to believe that is the best trade in I have ever gotten on anything.

BTW, we joined hands and prayed over this before attempting it, just sayin'

Fight Time!

A CIEMR

By Don Harward

We have absolutely arrived at a turning point for our republic. Almost everything the left promises is a lie. They will not unite this nation, they will change it into a communist country where we lovers of freedom will be silenced, controlled, and jailed. Think I’m going too far? Well, a bunch of kids can beat innocent Americans nearly to death and burn legitimate businesses while some politicians argue that they are simply exercising their freedom of expression. I’d say that is more than a wee bit o’er the line wouldn’t you agree? BTW if you think I’m wrong, please just stop reading, go away, and find some domesticated animal to argue with that the world actually is flat!

I’ve heard just about enough of these crazy ideas from the left. Paying reparations to 30th generation blacks because that distant relative may have been a slave? Entertaining the notion of white privilege? Or things like toxic masculinity, or crimes perpetuated against people who do not practice heterosexuality are hate crimes while the same crime perpetuated against an elderly couple is not? The left (Call them deranged, communists, soldiers of satan or whatever) want to control what you think through a propaganda machine called CNN/MSNBC/CBS and some others. All of that is preparing the sheep to take away their right to disagree by rewriting or removing the first amendment. Well, the left does not actually want to remove the first amendment for themselves, but only for those who disagree with them.

They then want to take away your second amendment right to keep and bear arms. Well, of course they do. Those Arms in our hands and the threat that we just may use them is about all there is remaining to prevent a leftist takeover. Think about a national police force controlled by the left being used to enforce illegal regulations over those of us on the right. The left wants to kill for all time the idea of a marriage between a man and a woman and the fruit of that marriage as being the core unit of our free society. They will do that by killing off the notion of God and Jesus. They will remove tax incentives from churches which will close the doors of many of our traditional neighborhood places of worship. Then they will go further and show you to be an agitator to the peace by making these liberal leaning people uncomfortable, offended, and afraid.

The end of our peaceful society is here, like it or not and all there is left for us to do is to fight. I say that with 100% certainty! We are now devolving into the fight for survival phase of our culture, our society, our republic, and our free country. We need to fight like hell to reelect Donald Trump as president. The left will do everything possible to corrupt the process. This election is all about one thing to them: Get rid of Trump. There is nothing beyond that. They have no real plan, and have lost any concept of the reality of what our nation should look like. They are the biggest bunch of moral cowards I have ever witnessed and they are as hollow as a helium filled balloon (Should have said “Hot air balloon”). The entire demoncratic party platform is to just get rid of Trump, and nothing more.

Because once they win they are going to do anything they want. Right away, “Weapons of war” will be registered and confiscated. They won’t try and pass any laws, a democratic party controlled executive branch will simply make some regulation and use force to get it done. They will bow to the extreme left, their power base, and work to keep those fools happy while they continue to move to denuder the right. Now the extreme left, those American University, Berkeley, and Georgetown University fools are simply twenty year old tools. In time they will be discarded once things have gotten to the point where we have given more control over and solidified the power for the UN, the seat of a one world government.

The left has no clue about American Exceptionalism. I mean how could they? None of them has ever done anything or been anywhere where great men have done the things that make us exceptional. Nossir, not going to witness it on the voice, and even though an eskimo can be married at first sight to a headhunter from Borneo, and that right there is pretty amazing, there is nothing truly exceptional about it. The NFL provides us a spectacle of human athletic prowess, but nothing earth shattering has ever happened there. Compared to the raising of the American flag on the summit of Mount Suribachi by some battle torn Marines, nothing that ever happened in any super-duper bowl will ever come close. I think that perhaps the only exceptional thing that is notable about professional sports are their astronomical paychecks, and little else.

We now have to fight. There is no getting out of it, we do not have a choice. While the smoke from a dozen burning cities pollutes our air, the fight came to us, we did not start it. We have but to fall in battle, or meet the haters of freedom and destroy them. We have to reelect Donald Trump. Under him we have four years to root out the evil and entrenched false government and send them to prison or to the gallows. Once Mr. Trump is reelected, we can now go after all those treasonous imposters who have occupied the seat of power for far too long.

We need to restore authority to our police and protect them while they do their job. We need to stand up for our rights everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Get rid of or stand up to liberals on your local school board. Make a stand to set things right once again. I did it, and I’m no body. All you have to do is to stand on solid principals, try to be a righteous person, dig your heels in and hold your ground. Yea, the fight may get tough and ugly and you won’t be making a ton of friends, but doing the right thing is always worth it. If your neighbors stop talking to you but one starts to show up when it really counts, then count yourself fortunate. You just weeded your personal flower bed and discovered a struggling gem of a begonia.

Make a declaration against censorship and teach our real, sometimes ugly, but also glorious history once again. To hell with hurt feelings, there is going to be a lot of that on the road to victory. You think the families and sailors and soldiers and marines from Pearl Harbor didn’t have some hurt feelings after the Japanese attack? Yep, they sure did, and they checked all that until they watched Japan surrender to us on the deck of one of our battleships. “Get over it” Needs to be our new battle cry heard over and over again at a hundred thousand board meetings, and court sessions, and legislative branch hearings and in our media, and on the bumpers of our cars.

We really do have a fight, and you had better wake up and take notice. We have but this time RIGHT NOW. We are still armed, still organized to some degree, we still have money, and influence and can still congregate in sufficient number. Do you really want to acquiesce to the notion of the liberal friendly man? I saw him on a cat food commercial the other day. The woman was the dominant character, well dressed and fit and pretty and articulate. Then there was the cat, a rather large critter of black and white furrage. Then there was the man, err, male. He was pudgy, rather ungroomed with big thick glasses and wearing a cardigan sweater and was shorter than the woman. I remember my football playing son’s reaction to seeing this “Man,” he cringed. We both looked at each other and he said, “He’s a drone.” Copy that. That cat-boy was there of only one reason. Not to lead and stand strong, but at the appropriate time provide one single cell to help make another human, if he was needed for that at all. Maybe he was another of the woman’s pets, I’m not sure.

But we are not that. They will try to make us conform to their concept of what a proper male should look like. Not outspoken except to echo the principals of Carl Marx or some other unworkable construct dreamt up by the people from this emerging one world government thing, or should I just cut to the core and say, “from satan’s elite.”

Don’t know about you but I hear the thunder from the distant guns and the footfall from thousands of enemy troops approaching. I’m marching out to meet them. As long as I am able, they will not pass. Wanna join us?

God Bless America. God Bless all lovers of freedom. Protect us Father from the plans of the enemy as we enter the twilight.

CIEMR / CIEMR: Anyone else done with the NFL?

Anyone else done with the NFL?

A CIEMR by Don Harward

I haven’t watched a single NFL football game ever since that bozo out west started kneeling in protest of our national anthem or America’s values or whatever fool of an idea the overpaid sports actor was against. Our vice president walked out of a game when players, who are really just entertainers knelt in protest to our national anthem, and in doing so telegraphed to me the true patriotism of the man.

I used to love watching the games. I spent a little over five years in Iraq and Afghanistan and during game day, I would proudly wear an old beat up Bengals hoodie. Yea, my team doesn’t do all that well in season plays, but nevertheless, I supported them.

I sometimes wore that thing beneath my flight suit and flew actual missions with it on. I was just honoring what my team was doing while I flew sorties in support of our brave warriors during some raid, or while they drove in a convoy or whatever. I even watched a game or two while listening to a buddy heckle me about how this “American” football was for wussies. He, by the way had been a South African Special Forces Sergeant Major, Rugby player, who bested me by thirty odd pounds and maybe two inches. I chose my battles with that man carefully ;-)

But then this wholly American football institution suddenly turned political. And not in support of brave American warriors who were fighting two to three wars at a time, but to suggest this country is prejudicial. First off, America is the most color blind country I have ever been to, and I have been to a lot of places. Sure you will find an instance here and there pointing to some prejudice but overall we are as balanced a society as one can be.

What turned me off was that the NFL commissioner did not crush this protest thing, but gave in to the growing number of players who wanted to taint the game with some personal statement of racial injustice. Really? I mean from those million dollar homes in Edgewood and Bel Air, how could you see two feet past your lavish lifestyle? You couldn’t, and that’s a fact. It seems to me the very people who were taking a knee actually had privilege and advantage over everyone else. They were propped up by a weak culture who worship celebrities over real heroes, and I guess that some of these overpaid actors have come to believe they really are better than the average person.

The NFL has not squashed this movement of protest but seems to be giving in to it. Could the Cowboys place the name of three police officers killed during rioting on their helmets to honor them? Nope, the league said it makes a statement and the NFL can’t support that. So what message did the NFL make by not allowing these men to be honored? That they are against the police?

But now we see that same NFL wanting to place the name of someone killed by police on the helmets of some team. OK, whatever, but why were the names of police officers not suitable to be paid tribute to, and this slain person is somehow worthy? I think it is pandering to these psychos who obviously hate America. The funny thing about all that is that these protesters are probably not buying season tickets to watch their local team, but a lot of police do. Police officers and military folks killed in the act of defending our nation are the true heroes and no amount of protest or pandering by NFL Officials to make a buck is ever going to change that.

You know God only sees the truth. He sees the true intent and he gave us the ability to do the same thing. The only truth I see is of an NFL who will bow to anyone with any message including an un-American one simply to keep the money flowing. And I for one will have nothing to do with it.
Have you heard that one of the NFL’s solutions to this problem is to replace the playing of the national anthem with “An alternate anthem?” Do you know what an alternate anthem is? Or what it is? In all my years, I have only known one national anthem, and that’s called the Star Spangled Banner. God bless the USA is a great song and America the beautiful is in most of our hearts, but they are not anthems. The banner is and if we move away from that then we move away from foundational national values.

Perhaps the NFL needs to melt down from loss of revenue so that something new can rise out of its ashes. I do know that I will not support any organization that I learn does not support our nation, period!

God Bless America! God Bless our Police, our military, our president, and our everyday patriots.

Intel / Antifa Command and Control structure
« on: August 16, 2020, 09:25:37 PM »
ANTIFA COMMAND & CONTROL STRUCTURE IN FIELD ACTION. STRUCTURE, INSIGNIA AND OTHER IDENTIFIERS.


Antifa tactical units are organized into standard ‘company structure’ of up to 20 individual soldiers under the immediate control of a company commander. While there are ‘special units’, most notable the ‘reconnaissance & coordination’ teams of bicyclists, the base of the command and control (C&C) structure for Antifa is the company.

Company commanders are ‘first lieutenants’ and may be identified in the field by their actions within the group, and frequently by possession of DX SDR units of some form. These ‘duplex (send/receive) software defined radio’ units will be small, and most probably attached to a smart phone. It is through the SDR’s that the encrypted commands are passed to operational units. On arrest, 1st Lieutenants have been observed discarding their identifying equipment as well as destroying their phones.  First Lieutenants can also be identified as being the local hub for bicycle traffic. In observations of rioting/looting activity, particularly with long distance videos of quality, bicyclists can clearly be seen reporting to 1st Lieutenants & even seeking them out in the mob. For this activity, bicyclists have been noted to employ ‘proximate apps’ to locate their units & commanders.

The Anitfa field organization has up to 4 companies reporting to a ‘captain (coordinator)’. Antifa Captains may be identified by common actions & equipment. Captains are ‘free floating’ within the mob movement, but will always be associated with increased bicycle traffic as well as ’emblems’ of authority/command. These emblems include specific types & shapes of video camera gear. Antifa soldiers are trained to center on the emblems of both 1st Lieutenants as well as Captains. Some of the Captains have been observed pulling their command together by holding up the long lens video camera overhead while running a pattern of flashes from the light bars. These are swept around the mob & new organization results.

Captains control and coordinate their company commanders by use of the SDR devides & will be observed in the field speaking into throat microphones while receiving by ear plugs or in-built headphones in their helmets. So far, all identified captains have been observed to be wearing some form of short coverage helmets. These appear to be adapted from the forms used by rock climbers. Captains will also be identified by the apps loaded on their phones, the SDR units,

In field actions, captains can be most frequently spotted by their movements coordinating 1st Lieutenants. Their most often observed task is enforcing discipline during the riots. In video footage of the day time looting in CA, the captains can be observed running up to enforce movement of specific companies that had been bogged down in looting, rather than attending to the mission being directed by the captain. In such incidents the first action of the captain is to force the soldiers attention on the video camera being waved around. Once recognition of rank is obtained, the captains can be seen pushing & forcing Antifa soldiers to specific actions, including pointing out their 1st Lieutenants. Captains have also been observed directing companies to attack specific locations they were identifying from maps on their phones. Looting has been preplanned for specific strategic and tactical goals as has been observed with the complex Antifa C&C actions at the looting of the Melrose high end Art store in CA.

In the field, Antifa C&C structure can be observed to include a ‘Colonel’ rank. These Colonel Antifa commanders are identified by being always accompanied by a ‘squad’ of up to half company strength used to control & protect the Colonel within the mob movements. Colonels have been identified as their supporting soldiers created paths for them through active riot areas. Other identifiers include near constant attendance by bicyclists, many of whom have ‘rolling command centers’ of digital & other equipment on racks on the bikes. As with Captains, the Colonels will also most frequently be seen wearing helmets, many with antenna off the back. These are part of the encrypted SDR systems that have been found to be hotspots of radio activity during riots. Antifa relies heavily on digital equipment, but other than minor levels of encryption, appears to be unsophisticated in wider applications, nor do they appear to be aware of their vulnerability to location by EMF triangulation.

The Antifa command and control structure, as so far observed, does not expose any levels higher than Colonel to visibility. All the ‘General’ level field officers have so far only been observed in vehicles being used as coordination centers. These have been noted to be extensively modified with electronic support systems.

The structure of Antifa in the field most closely resembles the ‘color’ revolutions created by the CIA. The tactics employed so far in these Antifa field actions have very similar targets & tactics as was observed as far back in time as the Viet Nam conflict, and in other arenas in which the CIA created wars and destabilized regimes.

While this is the end of this report on the Antifa C&C structure, it is worth noting that, in the observations taken from video footage, there is a suggestion of an ‘Unknown Actor’ (UA) within the activites involved in the looting. This UA is, like Antifa, organized, and can have many operatives within the mob at any given point. This UA does not appear to be engaging in escalation, rather appears to be most focused on ‘tagging’ the Antifa, with the presumed goal of identifying active members. These ‘tagging’ incidents have been observed employing very sophisticated UV light reflective paint ‘dots’ and ‘lines’ being placed on individual Antifa by UA agents using what appears to be a ‘nylon tipped marker’. Several of these markers with no product identifying marks have been recovered in debris following looting episodes. Also in one instance, a small bag of magnetic field reflective ‘dots’ of self-adhesive vinyl was also recovered. It is assumed that UA is using these as trace & track methods for their own purposes. The UA agents are exceptionally well trained and disciplined, exhibiting awareness of video activity sufficient to allow these agents to not yet be identified.

Subject: Reality or Conspiracy Theory? Yet another angle!
To:


Today on the Mark Kaye Show, an interesting point to one of his callers. The question asked was about why the Democrat Party was pushing mail in ballots so much. He stated that mail in ballots was all about winning the Presidency...but not a Joe Biden presidency. The Democrats know that using mail in ballots will totally screw up the system and put a major halt on determining who actually won the election. If the ballots are not counted and a winner determined by noon on January 20, 2021, the the sitting President and Vice President will lose their seat. An interim President will be announced at that point. The presidency will go to the third in line for the presidency which is the Speaker of the House, i.,e.,Nancy Pelosi. Impeachment didn't work, Covid-19 didn't work, so the left is going to "cook the books," so to speak, with the election. They have pushed and pushed the mail in ballots this whole time knowing that if they can get it passed, in many states Pelosi will take over as President. Biden has known from the beginning that he would never see the  White House. They used him as a pawn to distract the American people from what is actually about to take place. President Trump stated this morning on Fox and Friends that mail in ballots will delay the outcome of the election for months, if not years. And the Dems have known all along what they are doing.

 

Let's hope not!

The flight lead during the raid that led to the death of Osama Bin Laden, who was piloting one of the MH-47G Chinooks employed in that operation, says that a Pakistani F-16 Viper fighter jet "engaged" his helicopter three separate times as he flew toward Afghanistan during the exfiltration phase of the mission. The now-retired U.S. Army officer also says he was involved personally in two attempts during the Obama Administration to capture Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq. The Trump Administration decided to kill Soleimani, who had been head of Iran's Quds Force, in a drone strike in Baghdad in January.

Retired U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 5 Douglas Englen offered these and other previously unreported details about operations from throughout his career with the elite 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, also known as the Night Stalkers, in an exclusive interview with journalist and documentarian Alex Quade for Military Times, which is worth reading in its entirety. He only decided to share his personal memories after prompting from former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Leon Panetta and retired U.S. Navy Admiral William McRaven, both of whom were heavily involved in the planning execution of the raid on Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in 2011, according to Quade.

NIGHT STALKER CHINOOK SPECIAL OPERATIONS HELICOPTERS HAVE NEW LASER COUNTERMEASURES SYSTEM
By Joseph Trevithick
Posted in THE WAR ZONE


"I’m telling it to you," Englen told Military Times. "There’s never been an accurate air piece conveyed on what happened that night."

Many of the basics of the operation are well established at this point. Famously, two heavily modified stealthy Black Hawk helicopters were first to arrive at the compound and inserted the main raiding force. One of these helicopters subsequently crashed after experiencing a condition known as vortex ring state. Englen says the ambient temperature was hotter than expected, which can also impact a helicopter's available lift, and the stealth Black Hawk had more fuel and personnel on board than initially planned, all contributing to the accident.



It has also been widely reported that the use of the helicopters was controversial among the personnel involved in planning the operation and that McRaven, then head of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), had been particularly keen to employ them. There are indications that the stealth Black Hawks had been key to securing the final approval from President Barak Obama to launch the risky raid inside the territory of an ostensibly friendly nation.

It's not clear where Englen fell on that debate. He makes clear in his interview that he was among those who advocated for letting the stealthy helicopters penetrate into Pakistan first, rather than sending in the two MH-47G Chinooks, including the one that he would be flying, first to establish a temporary Forward Arming Refueling Point (FARP) and be in position in case something went wrong.

So, when the Black Hawk crashed at the Abbottabad compound, Englen and the rest of the backup force in the Chinooks were still in the process of setting up the FARP at a site 30 miles to the north. He immediately got a quick reaction force into his MH-47G and set off to assist the main raiding party, while the other Chinook stayed behind to ensure that fuel would be waiting for the remaining force before it returned to Afghanistan.

“We just went into contingency mode,” Englen explained. "Didn’t know the severity – if it was crashed with casualties? If it crashed in civilian area? All we do is minimize our time and get there as quick as possible."


Englen says that infiltrating into Pakistan in the first place had been relatively easy and, while he said that it was clear from lights coming on in buildings down below that they were waking average citizens up, there did not appear to be any major response from the country's authorities. "Once we crashed the aircraft [the stealth helicopter], within the first 30 seconds of the mission, then that’s when we really woke up that entire valley," he said.

Special operators attempted to destroy the helicopter with explosives, which only drew further attention. Englen says that he was arriving right when the controlled demolition occurred and almost got caught in the blast.

“I was probably 100 feet from the aircraft when it blew up. It pushed our aircraft to the side," he said. "I had to actually fly away, make a tight circle and come back in, and land under the mushroom cloud. I landed to the east of the compound, right next to it. I mean like, right next to it."

As is well known, portions of the helicopter remained intact enough for recovery. Pictures emerged soon after the raid showing the tail section of the top-secret helicopter in particular detail.


The tail of the crashed stealth Black Hawk hangs over the wall of Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan following the raid.

After loading up Bin Laden's body and other items of potential intelligence value from the compound, the raiding force began to make its way back to Afghanistan. Englen does not say exactly when during the exfiltration it occurred or where, but he says that one of Pakistan's American-made F-16 Viper fighter jets was clearly hunting for the remaining helicopters and attempted to "engage" his MH-47G at least three times.

“It was as an electronic fight. A missile never left the rail. So I was able to evade him electronically. That’s all I’ll say," he said. "But, he was searching and hunting for me, and three times came very close to actually launching a missile."

Englen does not say what type of electronic warfare systems he employed to evade the fighter jet. It is known that the MH-47G has some form of radio-frequency countermeasures system, in addition to infrared and laser missile warning receivers. Quade also says that the 160th's Chinooks had just received new electronic warfare equipment before the raid and that Englen had helped certify those systems and training crews to use them. The Night Stalkers Chinooks are without a doubt the most heavily modified and best-protected versions of that helicopter anywhere in the world.

The retired Chief Warrant Officer also says that he employed evasive maneuvers and a very low-level nap-of-the-earth flight profile to help get away from the F-16. "We pulled every technique and tactic out of the book. And it worked," he said.

“Now, in retrospect, we could have done it with two Chinooks, the entirety," Englen added. "And more than likely – I don’t want to ever second-guess anybody – but in this condition, we would not have crashed, because we [the Chinooks] have the lift."

However, his experience with the F-16 raises questions about whether using only non-stealthy MH-47Gs  would have created unacceptable risks. It has long been understood that there was a real danger that, if any of the raiding helicopters were detected, that the Pakistani Air Force, which is on a perpetually high state of alert in case of attacks from India, might have tried to shoot it down.


This interview would only seem to confirm that this was very much the case and came closer to actually happening than has been previously known. At the same time, it also appears to indicate that the Pakistani Air Force did not swing into action until the crash at the compound, suggesting that the country's air defense radars did not pick up any of the helicopters, regardless of their stealth features, during the initial inflitration.

Interestingly Englen does say that this was not the first time during his career with the 160th that hostile combat jets threatened his helicopter, but he did not provide any further details about any other similar incidents. There are reports that three years later, U.S. special operators again rode in stealth Black Hawks during a raid into Syria, though primarily due to concerns about ground-based air defenses, rather than hostile combat aircraft.

The very real vulnerability of conventional helicopters, as well as non-stealthy tilt-rotors and fixed-wing transport aircraft, to more advanced air defense networks has prompted work on stealthy helicopters and transport aircraft for decades now. The War Zone has explored many years worth of relevant programs extensively in the past.

Beyond these and other interesting details about the Bin Laden Raid, Englen also says that he directly took part in two attempts to capture Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq, once in 2013 and again in 2016. These are significant revelations given the ongoing debate around the Trump Administration's controversial decision to kill Solemani outside Baghdad International Airport in January and its legal justification for doing so. For years, Solemani ran Iran's Quds Force, which conducts various covert overseas operations overseas and provides different levels of support to various proxy forces throughout the Middle East and beyond.


Now-retired U.S. Army General Stanley McChrystal has said that he declined an opportunity to kill the Iranian officer in Iraq in 2007. McChrystal was head of JSOC at the time. The following year, President George W. Bush reportedly shot down a joint proposal from the CIA and Israel's Mossad to assassinate Soleimani in Syria.

That President Barack Obama was willing to try to capture Solemani is certainly an interesting addition to the discussion and it's not clear what the justification would have been for doing so. In 2011, the Obama Administration had sanctioned the Iranian officer over a Quds Force plot to kill the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States in Washington, D.C.

"It wasn’t ‘capture or kill,’ so if we couldn’t guarantee a capture, then we couldn’t take it to the next level," Englen said in his interview with Military Times. "But we were minutes behind him and his vehicles in Iraq, and we could’ve gotten him. But our rules of engagement was, 'capture only.'"

As already noted, the first to Englen's interview with Military Times is well worth reading in full. Englen was involved in some of the earliest U.S. military operations in Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including the mission to save Hamid Karzai, who later became president of the country, from getting captured by the Taliban. He also took part in the opening phases of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

With 34 deployments under his belt in total, equalling six years and nine months of total time spent in combat, including 2,500 sorties just in Iraq and Afghanistan, he has certainly seen and done a lot. Over the course of his career, 90 percent of the missions he flew were in support of so-call Tier One special operations forces, a term for the most elite and secretive units, such as the Navy's SEAL Team 6 and the Army's Delta Force.

Quade says that this may be both the first and last time Englen shares this level of detail about his experiences. Still, he is due to get inducted into the Army Aviation Hall of Fame in April, at which time we may learn even more about his years as one of the Army's most elite aviators.

Democracy takes intelligence
A CIEMR
By Don Harward

The founding fathers took a bold step in trying to run a nation through committee. They had lived under a monarchy and knew that in good times it was good, and the opposite applied as well. In the British Empire, the world’s most powerful and prolific at that time, they witnessed firsthand how their home, the colonies, were taxed unfairly. These colonies of his majesty were basically just told what they were allowed to do. The money and our best were simply siphoned away and sent back to England, the seat of the monarchy.

Now having one person making the calls is actually very efficient. Imagine if you could if Jesus came down to earth and ruled. One person making all the calls, and everyone just follows along. That would literally be heaven on earth because the king, Jesus, would always do what is best for us, and we, loving him for it, would do our best to honor his decrees.

The founding fathers, and no, I did not know any of them personally, knew that a monarchy may be good for a time, but with differing opinions of the English immigrants, vs the French, the Dutch, Swedes and so forth, that one or more groups would likely find themselves on the “outside” of some law or decision. Suppose we declared war on Ireland? Well, I’m thinking the folks who just stepped off the boat from Dublin may take up issue with that.
So a Committee sort of government based on a core group of laws would be the final solution. And one with a brilliant set of checks and balances of the three co-equal branches of government. So to skip through a lot of meetings and debates by these uber-intelligent men, they came up with the constitution which establishes our government and provides the framework of laws that govern how everything operates.

The founding fathers are even noted to have said and discussed that one requirement of this system to allow it to work properly is a common population that is both a part of the discussion, and intelligent enough to be able to make a sound decision. OK with all that in mind, let’s fast forward to today.
Looking around you, at your family, work peers, folks you know down in the hood, in the bar, or at your church, if you even attend one of those. How would you rate them on a scale of intellect, one to ten? Try it sometime. Ask someone a couple simple questions. Here’s a couple: 1. How many countries border the United States, name them. Can you? Did you answer, “Two, Canada and Mexico?” Close but there’s more. Russia borders the United States in the bearing sea where our international borders actually touch. OK trick question, right, but how many could even name Canada and Mexico? I asked that question once and the answer I got was, “Canada, Mexico, and New Mexico!” Really happened!

Ask them for the prime numbers and see how many try to give you the prime interest rate. Ask them what are the three branches of the federal government?. Name 10 states, or trick em up and ask them what state name starts with a “Q.” Don’t even think to ask them the state capitals of those states, heck, you don’t even know!

It takes thinking intelligent people to make good decisions in the complex setting we find ourselves in this technological age. I’d wager that far greater than 50% of our population just isn’t smart enough to make a good decision. Our education system which has been turning left for many decades is at fault, along with the people who have championed that cause. If I had my fifteen minutes of Kingship over the America, I’d eliminate it and allow states to start over. (My libertarian leanings are showin’ through a bit right there).

I’ve made an argument to say that for this federally knitted together group of states to work properly, the people who have their hand on the gearshift and their foot straddling the clutch pedal had better have a clue, but sadly I feel most Americans do not.
Case in point, let’s examine a gentleman’s comment to a former essay I wrote about the Trump. He argued, perhaps suggested is a better way of stating his position, that Mr. Trump was caught red handed talking provocatively about the fairer sex to some talking head and communist intelligence agent, err, media person. And for that reason, Mr. Trump should not be president. Anybody?

Anybody see anything wrong with any of that? I mean the guy (Our president) probably has had too much of Kentucky’s finest bourbon at one time and developed a case of loud mouth. Well! How dare he? How could a man fall to such lows? And how could such a man ever be qualified to lead the honorable elite of this great socialist state?

These people are all tripped up at the first stumbling block. Talk about “Do-Not pass Go and Do-Not collect $200!” And there they remain. They have fallen and that embarrassed them. They have a nasty red mark and need both medical attention, and a nice safe place devoid of nasty old rocks. They need someone to apologize to them for not removing that rock, heck, some old white person is responsible for the maintenance of the trail, right? We should defund the park service and pay reparations to others who may have been frightened by other rocks.

The problem is that on the other side of that single rock lies the Appalachian trail, what, over a thousand wonderful miles of it, right? And so it goes with the American system of government. It is darned complex and takes some time and study to begin to understand. Couple that with one’s need to know what’s going on all round your fighting position and you have what is shaping up as a major chore, and I will admit it is.

Learning to fly was pretty daunting, I recall. Getting the heading to stay in one place while the darned altitude clock stayed where the very demanding guy instructing me told me to put it was darned near impossible. And then there was this airspeed thing. Seriously, dude, you want all three? And no sooner than you start to get all that lined up properly, the old fool is tappin’ on the fuel gage! What, you want me to watch that too???

Well I could never have imagined getting all that to stay put for more than the instant I accidentally flashed through all the correct points on my way to a fiery crash, but I did. There was the day when the noisy old guy got out and said, take the thing around the pattern and try not to make me look bad, and try not to kill yourself. If I could ask more thing, please return the machine right back here in a useable condition, and off I went.

Years later I was that pesky old guy with what must have been hundreds of students of students over the years. But the machines were some of the most advanced on the planet and I could fly them across continents or down low with little people shooting at me with nary any effort at all. I would navigate a pass in the foothills of the Himalayas while calculating how much one of my mutual funds might be worth with three more good years and survive the transit.

And so it goes with learning about our government and stuff in general. If you don’t progress to watchin’ the gas gage while still knowin’ your altitude, airspeed, and heading, then do yourself, yes, yourself and everyone else a big favor and on election day, go get high, or drunk, or just sit around and watch reruns of “Let’s make a deal.” Please allow the responsible people to make the big decisions which ultimately will benefit you more than you have the capacity to realize.

Voting people, you have a loaded 9mm glock in your hands. Use it and carry it in a safe and thoughtful manner. Don’t go waving it around and don’t play around with it lest you accidentally shoot yourself in your own foot!

Area 51

You’ve all heard of the Air Force’s ultra-high-security, super-secret base in Nevada, known simply as Area 51.

Well, late one afternoon, the Air Force folks at Area 51 were very surprised when without permission or radio contact, a Cessna landed at their “secret” base.

They immediately impounded the aircraft, handcuffed the pilot and hauled him to an interrogation room.

The pilot’s story was that he took off from Vegas, got lost, and spotted the base just as he was about to run out of fuel.

The Air Force started a full FBI-NSA background check on the pilot and locked him up overnight.

By noon the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was lost and wasn’t a spy.

They gassed up his airplane, gave him a terrifying “you-did-not-see-a-base” briefing, complete with threats of spending the rest of his life in prison, told him Vegas was that-a-way on such-and-such a heading, and sent him on his way.

However, the next day, to the total disbelief of the Air Force, the same Cessna violated restricted airspace and again plopped down on the long runway at Area 51.

Again, MP’s with guns drawn surrounded the plane which this time contained two people.

The same pilot jumped out, with hands-up, laid spread-eagle on the ground and screamed,“Do anything you want to me, but my wife is in the plane and you have to tell her where I was last night!”

This is a problem!

Don't know about you, but for years when the boyz came home I asked them about the day. They got used to "Debriefing" me. When they mentioned something counter to !. The facts, 2. Our nation/nationalism, 3. Or was just way out there, I would respond

In "correctable" cases, I would simply email the teacher, correcting them, then check my son the following day to see if the teacher had corrected him/herself. If they did not I wrote a second email cc'ing the principal and school superintendent. Funny, but even today, they all know me by name.

People are flocking away from California.

It came sharply into focus to me today.

I was talking to a friend of mine who is closing on his second piece of property in Wyoming. The town has around 5,000 people, and the county which is home to five mountain ranges...FIVE! Has only 11,000 residents. He was recently talking with a realtor friend out there who liked to sell a property once a month that had six showings on that very day. She said properties are only lasting days on the market! She shared that Idaho and other conservative leaning areas with no liberals in government were experiencing the same boom.

Mostly people from California were buying. The theory is that folks working from home figured out that they can move away from the terrible conditions in commie land and no longer have to put up with the nonsense.

With that, Sacramento has apparently passed a large tax increase. That will be the end of that state. People barely holding on will pull pitch. Get ready America for a flood of refugees from California!

CIEMR / Recent NFL History lesson
« on: July 29, 2020, 05:09:33 PM »
NFL  (NATIONAL FELONS LEAGUE )   DIFFERENT STROKES FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS

 

Why Some Folks Have Come to Despise the NFL

 

NFL "Refresher" NFL History...history not often reported or leaked to the ticket holders. I hope this helps you; it opened my eyes, to better understand when and why the public’s respect for the NFL organization started to crumble....

 

* In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling before each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take it off.

 

* In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

 

* In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

 

* In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure "eye black for breast cancer awareness.

 

* In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem..).

 

*In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

 

* 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

 

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression. It seems quite clear based on these facts that the NFL has taken a position against any action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue:
For God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic violence, for cops killed arbitrarily, for being cops, or for the Memory of 9/11...

 

BUT they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our National Flag, our National Anthem, for America , and for the American People, if it will help mollify a particular Group and its supporters. That is who and what the NFL now has shown itself to be.

Message from the Owner / I love you all!
« on: July 26, 2020, 09:49:08 AM »
Now I know that must sound a little strange and out of context for the gruff old guy, but that fact is a reality for me and I thought I'd say it. Allow me to add a bit more context about why I felt like saying that.

A few days ago I was on an operating table for four hours while a surgeon probed around inside my heart. So although I didn't make light of or mention it, the thing had potential life ending ramifications that I had reconciled before lying down on that cold table in the O.R. I have lived a live abundant with experiences that few men have or will ever have. I have flown over many a strange land and mingled with their peoples. I have eaten their food, breathed their dust, and fought through gunfire and done some crazy stuff while in the military. I have met amazing people and I met Jesus.

Meeting him would change the course of my life but in a way that tethered along all those experiences and my behaviors both good and bad. I believe to my soul in the promise of salvation, so when I laid down on that table I knew two exciting possibilities lied ahead. The most likely was to awaken, free of the burden I have carried for so many years with some heart trouble. The second is that I'd soon meet my creator and give him a big ole hug.

Sitting here in the recovery mode, I began thinking about all of you. I was thinking of the things that mattered and as it turned out not one single physical thing came to mind, except the Chinook helicopter of course, we can all attest that it matters! ;-) Joking aside, you all have mattered to me a great deal. You have been there for me about half a million times bringing fellowship, and joy, and concern, and dialogue, and a hundred other things that made you all become important to me. I can go so far as to say even Daves have become important to me and have added to the fulfillment of a good life for me.

So I guess I really love all of you. You mattered, and you continue to matter, and in the dialogue and over time we have come to be quite the community. We pray for each other lifting up those in urgent need. We share in the joy of a newly acquired homestead, new child, marriage, or business success. We do stuff together without being together and have created a palpable synergy amd we hurt when someone of us is down or sick or lost a job. I would be less without all of you, and I am humbled and honored that you'd consider to allow this old armee pilot into your lives. I mean a flee-bitten hound would matter about as much.

But if I should have walked down that bright tunnel of light to meet the one whom I long to meet, I would have done so without telling all of youses that you matter to me and over the years have added substantially to my life and I love you for it!

Now if anyone ever mentions the old warrant officer got soft, you are: 1. Fired, and 2. Banned!

Continue mission...

Powerplant, Driveline, and Braking / Recondition a duramax engine
« on: July 18, 2020, 09:22:44 PM »
Lets talk about what would be the necessary steps to recondition a duramax engine and build it to reliably hold 600-700 HP in my Suburban application.

Tex has stated often that the recipe consists of using a LB7 short block and turbo, but add LLY heads to it to get the injectors from beneath the valve covers.

And here is what I currently have going.

I have located a complete LB7 engine and trans which is still in the donor truck. It cranks but will not start. It apparently did run when the truck was parked a year to 18 months ago.

If I move on that one, it will include the entire harness(s) the ECM, the FICM, the TCM and maybe some other stuff like the intercooler.

Now this is going to be expensive, so I cannot go too crazy with all sorts of exotic parts. An oil pump is $300. An upgraded turbo is $3000, trans is $5000

I am hoping to tear it down to find a good reciprocating assembly that I would only have to add rods, rings, bearings, and get the block all looker over, maged, line honed and little else.

I will purchase reman LLY heads, then put a few coins into larger injectors.

That's the plan I am looking at right now.

I'd like to draw on everyone's experience here

So now that I have had the thing out for a few rides, I can report that it is doing well. The trails here in the Tuck are narrow, rock strewn, muddy, lots of standing water and areas requiring extreme departure angles. THis "R" handles all this very well.

The shocks are three position and so far I have been using setting "2" which allows for some very sporty driving, drifting around corners in some places (Sliding??) I just switched to the soft position to see how that works out.

The other Talon I owned got buggered up already, which prompted me to start to accumulate parts.

The first thing it needed was some mirrors, so for the first mod, on with a set of ABS plastic body mirrors.

Land of the free? Home of the brave?

A CIEMR

By Don Harward

I believe I can challenge the popular line from the composition of one Francis Scott Key, the author for what became our National Anthem. I look around and I see freedom running counter clockwise down a toilet. I see people everywhere just standing there and taking it. Americans watching hoodlums tear down treasured statues, looting, burning everything, spewing hatred, and ushering in this socialist revolution that will lead to communism.

I won’t be there at that time to see it happen. I’ll be laying on some battlefield somewhere with many of my fellow patriots who died for the cause of freedom. I nor they are going to stand for it, and since a weak, a very weak America is not going to help us, we will have to do the heavy lifting by ourselves. So like my gunner would say to me just before I climbed into the cockpit for some mission in Afghanistan as he checked his mini-gun one last time, “Game face on, sir.” I would often lay a hand on the nose of the aircraft and silently pray over us and it, then get in and execute the mission.

That will happen here if we continue digressing from real freedom. I am not going to get all emotional and tear up, nope, when the time comes real patriots will just answer the call. Like it or not, there seems to be a war coming to America. It may be a natural progression of society or more likely it will be the result of some sinister forces having maneuvered our people over decades to arrive at this point for their purpose.

We have gun control because no one of a right mind did enough to stop it. We have this crazy woman who is mayor of Chicago because not enough people voted for the opposition. No one riots and protests for freedom, and no one is organizing and getting dammed angry publically over her stupid decisions. Finally, in the void of public protection, why hasn’t a few thousand good people not taken to the streets and pancaked these criminals? Hell, you know who they are…you know they killed that baby, right? If that mayor is more interested in going after the few remaining legal guns in the city or making sure cops use dignity and respect, then give her a lesson about self-defense. Show her how it’s done. Heck I thought people from the Chi-town were tough…apparently not.

If these criminals met a force equal and opposite in strength and power, they would 1. Stop being criminals, 2. Move, 3. No longer be a part of the human gene pool. So, what’s wrong with any of those choices? What are you waiting for? Look I am all about law and order, but when I see a government that is so dysfunctional and is falling over backwards to ensure police respect a career criminal while enacting legislation to imprison cops the very minute they make a mistake, then I say that government is no longer of reasonable people. So, get rid of it!
 
I think we should change those treasured lyrics to “Home of some brave.” And I’m sick of it. I don’t have two friggin clues why Me and thousands like me “Jocked up” and climbed in our vehicles and aircraft or moved out on foot to hunt Taliban, communists, VC, Al Qaeda, Sandinistas, Marxists, some bikers (Yep, did that!), and drug runners just so some chicken crap self-centered weak kneed American would sit on their fat haunches and do nothing to protect freedom back home. The few of us who do or did our part can hold our heads high, but 95% or more cannot.

Now to the honest hard working people, the Farmers and factory workers in this nation, to the small business owners and the struggling single moms, I’ll give you a pass. I recognize that life has you buried to your nostrils and you just don’t have the time to get involved. To you, when this thing starts to fold over, you need to fall in with us veterans and fight. Do that or behind door number two, surrender your freedoms and become a subject in some new country where special interests working through their “government” dictates to you: what and who, and where for the rest of your days. You’re gonna have to do that part on your own, as I said the folks on your block with the Marine Corps decal in the back window, and the flag waving from their house, well those brave men and women will no longer be around.

This land has been free because of the brave, and you have forgotten that. You are so willing to allow some overreaching mayor, or senator, or commissioner to crucify your police officers. I can’t stand a coward, and stuff like this is hard to write because I know a bunch of you cowards are reading this and squirming. You’d thing I’d enjoy the fact that this essay would make you squirm, but I just really don’t want to have anything to do with any of you. But because of our system of government which I steadfastly support as long as it is in accordance with the constitution, cowards like everyone else are afforded rights and privileges. They can vote. They can pro-create and create more cowards. Then can move together into city blocks and concentrate. They can branch outward from there and put together enough power to elect a councilmember, then two, then the mayor. And so goes Chicago. And Chicago is so huge it becomes the tail which wags the dog, the whole state of Illinois.

So those farmers down in Peoria have little voice in the whole matter. They use guns to shoot copperheads and water moccasin, but because of some lunatic in Chicago, they have to undergo more scrutiny than a street thug to buy a .22! You will never, ever keep a gun out of the hands of a criminal. You can, however place a bullet into the carcass of a thug if you happen to have a gun. The answer to gun control is 1. Not to have any, or, 2. Encourage gun ownership amongst all your citizens. Do that and a mom scared to death for her infant being assailed by some gangster is going to shoot that fool eleven-teen times just because she is scared. I don’t care how or why that happened, but the world will inventory one less thug at day’s end and our planet, therefore, will be a much better place.

Criminal’s having rights? Screw that. I have roads that need fixin’! I think it would be creative to have the crime point to the method of punishment or labor you’d have to do. You do the bad thing with a BLM shirt on, well, OK, you’re saying to me you want to work on the asphalt laying crew, cool! Want to tear down statues? Great. You see that tall one over there? With the two decades of pigeon crap adorning it” Get to it, and since its brass, use this metal polish too, worked for me when I was a warrant officer candidate. Use a gun in a failed crime, and you are still alive? Awesome, hey look you have some choices. You can, get to work in the iron mine digging out the rusty stuff to make more guns, you can volunteer to be a training actor for military and police where you get to play a criminal and they hunt you all day and shoot you. Sub caliber, mind you, wax bullets and so forth, we don’t want you injured because you still have three years of training aid service to perform. There was a third thing I could see gun yielding thugs doing, but I had so much fun with the first two, I forgot what it was! Kidney donor??? No not that…

You fellow Americans have not been brave or we would not have riots. Still allowing these snowflake kids out there with insect legs and biceps taking over anything except for their copy of modern warfare? What about the local drug dealers muscling good people around. Heck a 30-30 from a second floor window could ruin their day at 2,600 feet per second. As long as everyone was of the same mind, why, I just bet no one saw anything, right? How about the next time you see anyone disrespect a police officer, you step up to the loud mouth and say, “Shut it pal, around here we respect officers of the law, and if they weren’t here protecting you, I’d introduce you to some mid-town courtesy counselling.” It would take courage to do something like that, but mainstream America lacks it.

Parents are also in large part cowards. They threaten to spank their out of control kids in line at Lowes then never do it. Ask my boys about that. If I said a thing, I did that thing, like right now. And there were times when some fool would say something to me about hitting my boys. Mostly I’d ignore them, but the boys knew that as long as I was in earshot or range, should they cross the line, some sort of correction was enroute. And guess what I hear all the time today? Don, those boys of yours are so polite, and well mannered. And to their credit, they are, what about yours? Anyone who says you should not apply the rod to a misbehaving child is a Kool-Aid drinking fool.

Inner city and some extremely rural families are fatherless with mothers still having many children. That is a major problem as a proper father is the discipline figure of a well-functioning family. The inner city black community is the best, or perhaps poorest example of this. There are so many black kids growing up on their own with a mom hopelessly burdened with the job of raising them and their siblings that the important lessons a father can teach are missing. We all know that many of these kids yearning for a father’s love and approval move on in search of it and find poor substitutes in gangs and criminal enterprises. We end up fighting them, suffering at their hands, imprisoning them, and many of them die young after a short and embattled life.
Much of the engine that powers this system of broken families is enabled by the welfare system, brainchild of one President Lyndon Johnson. He created the financial system which now sustains people going nowhere who make plans to further thwart a broken system. Take away the fuel and a fire goes out. Remove welfare and people are going to have to trade in those escalades for old Buicks that will get them to/from a real job. Then as the pride wrought from a good day’s work works its healing magic over time, these broken people are going to become whole once again. Not all, some will fail, but most will come out of it just fine. And after they wake up, I’ll bet they see the light and end the reign of the communist/democratic party.

You aren’t very brave and you certainly aren’t free. Do you own your paid off home? Nope, refuse to pay taxes on it and the guberment will snatch your life’s work right out of your hands and send you under the I-95 Bridge over there. Buy a machine gun? Nope not allowed. Do what you want to on public land? Sure, as long as you comply with a long list of regulations. Convert your gas guzzling truck over to diesel? Not in commiefornia or Illinois, or Maryland, or… Brew up you own corn liquor? Nope, sorry once again. If you did that, then how could the guberment tax it?

You’re not free, you just enjoy a shrinking list of things the authorities allow you to do. It came to this because when action was needed to stop the regression you did nothing, or you were scared, you displayed cowardice above and beyond the call for normal cowardice. Well, you all created this, so enjoy being told BLM rioters have rights too, that your kid may or may not be allowed to attend public school, and no, you can’t own a pistol. Get used to hearing the merits of a Muslim lifestyle taught in public school, where if your kid points a finger like a pistol at another kid he is suspended. If you ask me the only thing that is suspended in the public school system is common sense.

Free? Not really. Brave? Except for a few, no, you aren’t

Jesus please come soon

The Bush Clan opens a 'second front' against Trump
Exclusive: Scott Lively explains the 'Purple Uniparty' at work since the Johnson administration
Scott Lively   By Scott Lively
Published July 13, 2020 at 7:13pm

I will begin this article by confessing that I was once a strong defender of George W. Bush, starting with the national conservative uprising triggered by the "hanging chad" political scandal in the Bush v. Gore election of 2000. I participated in a massive gathering of conservatives who descended spontaneously on the California Capitol in my then-hometown of Sacramento like a swarm of angry hornets, as other did in countless cities across America. I've since come to recognize that the Bush Clan has always been Deep State, it's continuing political dynasty representing the top strata of the Red Republican half of the Bush/Clinton/Obama/Romney Purple Uniparty.

I was not surprised, therefore, to see the Bush political war machine recently roll onto the 2020 election battlefield flying the flag of George Soros' anti-Trump "Purple Revolution." In early June, Bush 43 announced his intention not to vote for Trump, and then, as reported by WND in early July, a new pro-Biden super-pac, "43 Alumni for Biden," was created by "hundreds of former George W. Bush staffers … to 'unite and mobilize a community of historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation.' … 'not necessarily in full support of [Biden's] political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation.'" I predict this is just the beginning of a major "second front" in the elites' war on Trump.

When we talk Deep State, we're talking about a huge, multi-layered, multi-disciplinary, fully integrated network of Cultural Marxists who share the common religion of Secular Humanism, its moral code of "political correctness" (especially regarding sexual morality) and the dogmatic cultural narratives that serve as "scripture" for them all. Its roots go very deep indeed – all the way back to the late 1800s in America – but the most relevant period for this essay begins with the shady career of Deep Stater George H.W. Bush.

Bush 41 was apparently high-level CIA under JFK and LBJ before becoming a pro-abortion Texas GOP congressman during Johnson administration. Though he denied having been a spook, a declassified FBI memo from J. Edgar Hoover named 41 as the sole CIA representative verbally briefed on Nov. 23, 1963, about JFK's assassination the day before. There's always been considerable buzz in conspiracy circles about his (and LBJ's) possible role in that "regime change." And, of course, Bush 41 was later tapped in 1976 as CIA director by Gerald Ford.

I have long argued that "Landslide Lyndon," America history's poster boy for election fraud, was the most corrupt president in U.S. history (until Obama). From his infamous and unconstitutional 1954 "Johnson Amendment" banning churches from endorsing political candidates, to his "War on Poverty" agenda that created the federal entitlement system by which Democrats gained a seemingly unbreakable hold on nearly every big city in America, LBJ's legacy was poisonous. Yet the LBJ Presidential Library features a special tribute to Bush 41, stating in part, "The Bush and Johnson families share a long history and friendship, beginning in the 1950s when Lyndon Johnson served in the U.S. Senate with Prescott Bush, George H.W. Bush's father. Although from different political parties, the two men enjoyed a productive working relationship steeped in mutual respect."

The Bush 41/LBJ "productive working relationship" hinted at a "Purple Uniparty" long before we started color coding the GOP as red and the Dems as blue. The much-heralded Bush 43/Bill Clinton "collegiality" was further evidence. Today, of course, we live in a world where Donald Trump's paradigm shattering election in 2016 has exposed the Purple Uniparty so fully that Bush 43 has now unashamedly joined the Dems and opened a second front in the war on Trump.

Former Massachusetts governor now Utah Sen. Mitt Romney has represented the Bush Dynasty on the battlefield since 2016. He pops up whenever his cheap shots against Trump can get the maximum media coverage, the most recent regarding the Roger Stone commutation. Romney's protégé, second-term Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker (whom I ran against in 2014 and 2018), has also sniped repeatedly at Trump and will likely soon escalate his anti-Tump rhetoric. (To show how cozy they all are, Baker's purple party predecessor and close Obama buddy, Deval Patrick, transitioned from the Massachusetts governor's office to a seat on the board at Romney-brand "Bain Capital.")

Many "Establishment Republicans," meaning Cultural Marxists who still pretend (to varying degrees) to be conservatives, have been forced to align with Trump to retain power, but now that Bush 43 has emerged from the shadows under the purple banner, some of them will show their true color as well.

Looking back I am now convinced that Bush 41 intentionally lost to Bill Clinton in '92 to fast-track the Marxist agenda, on the understanding that the Bush Clan would get back the baton in 2000. I believe that Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney were all Bush Team members tasked with taking a dive in their respective races, and that was the role Jeb Bush was intended to play for Hillary, before Trump upset their apple cart.

Looking forward I think the Bush Team will incrementally bring ALL of its assets to bear against Donald Trump, and many people will be shocked at how deep the Deep State goes in the ranks of the GOP – especially among "conservatives." (Jeff Sessions is not an anomaly.)

I am especially concerned about Texas Gov. Greg Abbot, since I believe the COVID-19 "second wave" is central to the anti-Trump strategy, and the media seem to be setting up Texas to be the New York of the second wave. I'm hoping Abbot is a true constitutionalist, but I know his political ascendency was kick-started by appointment to the Texas Supreme Court in 1995 by then-Gov. George W. Bush. Time will tell if he is a Bush asset, but even if he isn't, there are many who are, and we're about to see them step out of the shadows with guns aimed at Trump.

All that having been said, I still think Trump will win in a landslide, and for the first time since the start of the Marxist invasion we'll know who most of the Deep Staters are when the second Trump term – the Great American Swamp Draining – begins in earnest. At least that's my hope and prayer.

A Lesson about history
A CIEMR
By: Don Harward

I like history, how about you? I like the fact that it is what it is, kinda like the truth, it just is what it is. Hey if your feet stink and your momma doesn’t like you, well that’s just a fact. If that condition has existed for some time, then its history. Well into the future people will say, “You know, old sergeant knucklehead was a good man and it’s said that his feet stank and his momma didn’t like him.”

Now is there anything wrong about any of that? I mean let’s be honest, don’t a few of you out there have stinky feet? I don’t mean all the time, but sometimes, certainly, right? So there you have it, some things about us are not all that pleasant, but it just is what it is. To say anything different about it would constitute a lie. So you stand there in the elevator on a ride up to the seventeenth floor and you’re gaging out the other occupants. If you were to say it’s not your feet, and they have never stunk, well, I guess you aren’t being truthful.

I’ve written about the truth before. It is what it is. If it happens to be that you were seen leading the charge of a Ranger platoon at point du hoc, well, you have something to be darned proud of. But if your truth is that you drank yourself into mindlessness too many times and that good woman who married you finally had to grab the kids and move away, well that may be rather unpleasant, but none the less, it is the truth.

The lesson here is if you care at all, you had better think through your decisions and actions because they just may reverberate down through the halls of time. They may haunt you and you will certainly wish you had not taken that pretty girl up on her offer of passion, but you did it and now you’re hanging out with the guys with no wife. So that’s a basic lesson about your decisions. Look at what you do with an eye that is half focused on the future you wish for yourself.

Another thing about the truth is that it constitutes a basis for our beliefs, our laws, both legal and physical, our morals and sets us upon solid rock. The bible is as I have said many a time a good place to find foundation and bedrock stuff. Mr. Matthew is quoted in a book by his own name as saying:

Matthew 7:24-27

Build Your House on the Rock
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

So there you have it, some guy who was recognized enough by our creator to be allowed not only a quote, but to write and pass on wisdom and get an entire chapter to his credit. His editor is someone we all respect and although I am a published author, I can claim no such credit. So from the mind of this not too smart old Army pilot, Matthew’s words are to be taken to the bank.

OK so history is but an acknowledgement of the truth, what actually happened is, what it is, as much as anything can be, agree? If you don’t, there should be a safe place nearby, RUN-RUN, there is danger and hurt feelings ahead!

America is a land of truth. Here we love the downtrodden. Heck those wonderful sergeants I served with are proof enough of that! (Sorry guyz, but you know the rules…;-)) Sorrowful a lot as they mostly are, we love em, and I still do to this day.

Having a bit of fun there with my friends, well, my brothers to be more accurate. Our nation didn’t always get it right, and it still doesn’t. A communist leaning democratic party is losing sight of the moorings that their ship has come adrift from. But at the time when America was creating our history, the bricks we were laying down in future history books were simply, what they were. Did white men own black people and work them like jackhammer? Yep sure did. Did we build the agricultural power on the back of black people who were cruelly ripped from their villages and subjected to horrible treatment? Sure did, again and again. And those facts viewed in the context of that time were simply the way people did things. Rich white men purchased enslaved black people and worked them literally to death. Fact. Swallow once, squint the Mark-1 eyeballs and move out and continue mission.

Kinda of ugly, right? So what was your part in that? Any of you have a great, great, great, great, great granddaddy who was a white guy who killed slaves, working them to death? Shouldn’t you be ashamed, and work to hide your unfortunate past? Well a couple of points here, first what was your say in the matter? Right, you weren’t born yet. But you would agree that we should get back to enslaving blacks, right? Oh you don’t? Oh I see, your pastor is black, so was your best man and you served with Sergeant smith a 6’2” black airborne qualified warrior who ran out and grabbed your stinky butt when a Taliban IED took out your HMMV.

So the point is that time which is always moving right along has healed those old wounds and has changed the way we think about people. Now we seldom think of white or black or Hispanic, we just see people as the smiths, officer jones and the principal, Mr. Yen. I think we have the most colorblind nation on earth. The only time I ever get angry at a black is when I see him pouring hatred from his/her mouth. But in reality, I don’t really see the color, I just see the hatred and the threat, and oh by the way, the person could be black or white or yellow. I do not however see whatever they are as being Americans. I see them as a lot who has been weaponized by heartless manipulators who are using weak minds to create havoc in an America that is the one thing standing in the way of delivering a huge plate of one world order.

These enraged idiots, who cannot reason through all the bullchit and see that they are being lied to are fools, and tools. Man can you see where education would help here? But emotion is a powerful tool. Smart people learn to control their emotions and take pause to look beyond the immediate and search for the true motive. But emotional brats will not. But as shallow as their knowledge is, so is their staying power.
I have seen them run like mice on the battlefield. But our soldiers stand resolute and hunt them and peruse them. I think that is because Americans are raised on a foundation of truth, they know where they came from, they are proud of who we are and they believe to the point of death in their nation. Our enemy seldom does, and I believe none of these snot nosed Antifa or blm children have any more resolve than the cowards we’ve fought all over the world.

I am not good with changing history. Well, because it is changing the truth into some distorted version of it or a lie. Something less than full disclosure is a form of lying as well. Tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson because he is now viewed as some white supremist in the eyes of the uninformed emotional kids pretending to be freedom fighters? No, we leave it and become smart enough to control our emotions and simply learn our history. He was a white general who stood his ground in a decisive battle during our civil war and that’s a fact. It is an irrevocable fact, it is part of our history.
To change any of that is messing with the recipe. That recipe is a part of the making of all of us that came afterward. Some of them saved your butt in a car accident. Some guarded your posterior from hoodlums not far away. Some stood beneath a blackened and ripped American flag on some God forsaken rampart in some province none of you could pronounce or ever heard of. Some studied hard for many years and are just this week going to perform a surgery which will allow one of you to live a bit longer. Some grow our food, some sail aboard ocean going ships bringing all manner of goods to our shore and some others orbit above us as we begin to reach toward the stars. Do you really want to mess with the recipe that did all that?

On this white supremist thing. It’s a bunch of bull crap. Ask any super successful black man and he will tell you the same thing. If you really want to get right to some of the ugly truth, the fact is that white Europeans settled here and became the very engine for democracy that all people, even angry black youth, enjoy today. I for one am darned thankful for any white (or black) man who helped build this America and shepherd us through our birthing years and through our tough times. God Bless them all.

That’s just history, and you better not mess with it. People need to know a bunch of men noble enough to have their likenesses carved onto the side of a mountain who were white in this case, saved the America, and led us through tough times. One of them arguably created our nation! And if you didn’t know, there is a magnificent stone face of a Native American not too far away and I consider him a man of equal importance.
 
So I have to tell a little story here. A friend of mine who I flew Chinooks with was a Native American. He was a darned good pilot and a good man. He coached a wrestling team, and on one occasion traveled to a town in Tennessee with his wrestlers to compete in a tournament. This town had an active KKK group who tried to have him removed because some of his wrestlers were black. Picture in your mind if you will an American Indian, US Army combat veteran, standing up for some black kids going nose to nose with bigots. I can tell you it was epic. And those boys wrestled and those bigots were sent packing. That Native American taught me to have respect for those people on some of America’s battlefields and I respect them to this day.

OK, back to the childish fools. These angry mobs need to be spanked. If the government won’t do it, then we the people need to. I don’t want statues or places of honor desecrated by communists, and punk kids who are too stupid to wipe their own butts and are offended by everything except their own hideous looks. I say let’s punch them in the nose, then offer them a cool rag with some ice in it and talk to them about the truth. Let’s get out there and speak our mind. Let’s tell them about this great nation and of great men and women, black, white, blue or red who selflessly gave until it hurt for their nation, our nation. It’s ours to preserve or pander away to some snot-nosed twenty something. Seriously men, you gonna allow a bunch of kids top rewrite our history? Are you going to continue to elect coward, pandering politicians, mostly demoncrat into our offices of power?

Wake up, please before this whole thing gets to the level we all hope it never gets to.
