My friend and often guest writer, Ron Jenkins, a retired US Air force Officer sent me this wonderful message that put a tear in this old Navy mans eyes. It is a shame that most Americans have no idea what our special military families endure. C BrewerRon, I received this from an old friend………..
Eglin Joint Base Command located near Ft. Walton, Florida, is presently the largest Military Complex in the world and encompasses a large contingent of Air Force units, Naval Warfare units, and the 7th Army Special Forces and 6th Army Rangers.My home is exactly 5 miles outside the main gate of Eglin AFB.
Most folks in the USA don’t live in a Military Town, with lots of guys in uniform walking the streets and jets overhead daily. They go on with their lives unaware of what a Military Town is all about. And that’s OK… but I want to share with you what it’s like to live in a Military Town.
We see guys in uniform all the time, we have state of the art, high-performance aircraft in the air nearby all day long. We hear the SOUND OF FREEDOM when an F-22 or F-35 streaks over the house… and we read in the local paper, sometimes daily, but at least weekly, of the loss of one of our own in combat in the Middle East. And that is what brings me to the reason for this email.
Staff Sergeant Mark DeAlencar was 37 years old, had a family and was a Green Beret with the 7th Army Special Forces stationed here in the Fort Walton area. He was killed on April 8, 2017, while fighting Islamic State in eastern Afghanistan.
In January of this year, he was deployed for the second time to Afghanistan. He promised his adopted daughter, Octavia, that he would be home for her High School Graduation. He didn’t make it. But she went to graduation anyway. And in the audience were eighty (80) US 7th Armed Special Forces soldiers from her dad’s unit in full Parade Dress Uniform. Additionally, they brought THEIR FAMILIES to be with them, as well.
And as Octavia ascended the steps to the stage to receive her diploma THEY ALL SILENTLY STOOD UP. And when she was presented her diploma they ALL CHEERED, CLAPPED, WHISTLED… and YES, CRIED. Everyone in attendance then stood up and cried and cheered.
Octavia had graduated and yes she had lost her Dad…but she had found 80 other DADS to stand there with her and take his place.
I just wanted to share this moment with you… and remind you that THIS IS WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE IN A MILITARY TOWN.
This is the real America we all love… and I’m proud to be part of it.
May God bless our men in uniform and their families who give so much.
Take a second to share this with everyone you know. It’s the least we can do for Octavia and SSgt Mark DeAlencar, 7th Special Forces, United States Army.)
And these do-nothing, accomplishment-less, shameless, punk sports figures who are so proud of their juvenile take-a-knee crap…WOW
Having spent time in many Muslim countries I was deeply impressed with this book review. Dr. Hammond is an obvious genius in explaining the threat we face watching our Liberal/Progressive politicians race to resettle Muslims into our society. The future will prove that this is one of the most dangerous moves in the history of the United States. My decision to post this was easy but convincing Americans to believe it is fact will be hard. This old man will not have to worry as I will be long gone but I feel so sorry for my family and yours. If anyone knows who wrote the review let me know and I will give them credit. C Brewer
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.
– In the first place Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.
– Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
– “Islamization” begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.
– When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in. Here’s how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
– United States — Muslim 0.6%
– Australia — Muslim 1.5%
– Canada — Muslim 1.9%
– China — Muslim 1.8%
– Italy — Muslim 1.5%
– Norway — Muslim 1.8%
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:
– Denmark — Muslim 2%
– Germany — Muslim 3.7%
– United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
– Spain — Muslim 4%
– Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
For example: they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves; along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.
Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:
Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 15%
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
U A E — Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here, there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses’ are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.
‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, & all of us against the infidel. Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law.
The national police do not even enter these ghettos.
There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities.
In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrases; they learn only the Koran.
To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers.
Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century………..unless?
Please look up Dr Hammond on Wikipedia and Snopes. I think the good Doctor is genuinely scared of the threat that Islam or the Muslim culture/religion will have on North America and any other place where Constitutional Republic’s, i.e., Democracies such as the United States of America, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, operate in a nation of laws and freedom’s, not solely based upon religious dogma.
What is your position?
I AM EXTREMELY HONORED TO PUBLISH THIS PICTURE OF MY FELLOW VETERANS.THEY GAVE THEIR BESTThis while the other young women are complainingbecause the gov’t won’t pay for their birth control !!!God bless our troops!!!You’ll never see this picture on the front of Time Magazine, or any other magazine.We see lots of pictures of wounded male veteransbut women vets get wounded and maimed too.You may need to take a second, closer look though.The first thing I saw was a bunch of beautiful smiles.Study this picture again. Let the story it tells sink in.These women and many others, as well as their male comrades,paid this price for our freedoms.And, they did it for less than what welfare recipients are paid!!!DID YOU GET THAT?!?There is more patriotism and class in those 11 ladies picturedthan the majority of Congress and the former White House combined!!!And a HECK of a lot more than those over-paid athleteswho choose to “take a knee” when the National Anthem is played!!!They risked these injuries (or death) FOR YOU and ME, AMERICA!GOD BLESS THEM ALL !!!
Watching all of the violence on the news in between, prior to and after two horrible hurricanes gave me time to deeply evaluate some of my own life. It is hard to believe I have watched this great country go from rags to riches then slowly chart a course to self destruction in my 87 years. Sadly I have family that is so focused on socializing America it would not surprise me if I saw some of my own grandchildren on TV involved in useless demonstrations and property destruction before I croak. I really hope not.
When I entered adulthood, at 16 in my case, few high school graduates had any opportunity to attend college. I was certain there was nothing anyone could teach me as I knew everything. I have written before that one of the smartest decisions I ever made was enlisting in the US Navy at 17. Looking back I was better prepared for my trip through life than most of my classmates who were later drafted and served in the Korean war. If every American boy and girl were required to serve after high school or reaching the age of 18 in a federal program things would be different. The program would last only ninety days and be designed to transition and prepare them for adult life. This would result in America not having the insurrection we see today.
Unfortunately this will never happen as the leadership in America has slowly disappeared. Today we have leaders that survive with power instead of wisdom. Watching the leadership of the Republican party since the last election has been sickening. We now have a born successful leader willing to give up a life of luxury to try to save the country from itself. Sadly he has been abandoned by his own Republican party in accomplishing needed change by people who have elevated their status to elite untouchables.
I really hope I live to see Donald Trump introduce these bureaucratic has beens to unemployment with term limits that they believe the people will not support. If the people want America to return to prosperity they will throw these power sick millionaires out of Congress and soon.
Nothing President Trump has done so far has made Congress happy. The media bias and outright hate have caused most of the insurrection to date. Our Federal Courts have been stuffed with so many Socialists Judges we are having a stand off only the people can settle. Lifetime appointments for these “elites” has created chaos that must eventually be stopped. The Supreme Court is a perfect example of bias as simple things are decided by political reasons rather than the laws in force. Again the people have the power. The current President is challenged for trying to implement the changes he promised when we elected him. I pray that we the people stand behind the first leader we have elected since Ronald Reagan or Socialism will be alive again to doom our Republic.
I want to close this limited walk through life by giving you advice whether you are 16 or 60. Regardless of your desires, expectations, wishes or prayers your destiny was programmed to end your life cycle the day you are born. You only have one trip so please enjoy every year you have by being happy. Watching these young Americans and aliens destroy property, inflict injury on innocent others makes me want to throw up. Free speech is the cornerstone requirement for freedom regardless of any reason. These riots remind me of the youth in Germany that were the tool used by Hitler to brainwash an entire country to self destruction.
How do you feel about the future? I wish enough people would comment on this article to let me share your feelings with others in another article. I will continue to share my conservative position as long as I draw a breath before the fat lady sings. I may not have many people read my work but the ones who do have my promise to keep trying to help make a difference.

My often guest writer sent me this material that made my day. If you live in the South you can be sure that this army of the most caring people on earth will show up when needed. I have spent a lot of time in every one the lower 48 United States, Hawaii and 32 different countries worldwide. I have never seen or heard of any people any place I have been that love their country and the people more than the South. I am proud to have lived every day of my 87 years in Texas. The following will never be seen on the media, including FOX, which is sad. They might show incidents but they never report how people in the South help each other all the time when needed.
This is the best description of Harvey’s aftermath I’ve read, so far. (And it will be the only true story reported)
Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston, Beaumont and Port Arthur and points East. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.
Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of “camo”.
Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump. These are the people the Left loves to hate; the ones Rachel Maddow mocks. The ones Bill Maher and Keith Olbermann, and so many Liberal Progressive elite’s just ‘know’ they’re so much better than.
These are The Quiet Ones.
They don’t wear masks and tear down statues. They don’t, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods. But they’ll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging alligators, water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available, and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They’ll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.
When disaster strikes, it’s what men do, real men, heroic men, American men, and, then they’ll knock back a few shots or a few beers with like-minded men they’ve never met before and talk about fish or ten-point bucks or the benefits of hollow-point ammo or their F-150. And, the next time they hear someone talk about “the patriarchy” or “white male privilege”, they’ll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.
In the meantime, they’ll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work’s done.They’re unlikely to be reimbursed. There won’t be medals. They won’t care. They’re not heroes, they’re just good people. And that’s what important.
Oh, BTW, there were many, many women that did just as much, worked just as hard, or maybe harder, in doing what had to be done for their neighbors and fellow American’s. What was so obvious was that the race or sex or social status of the victims or their rescuers was immaterial, the only thing that mattered was that someone needed help!
As the media would never share this I hope you will. This is not bragging it is just plain facts. Americans in the South don’t hate other Americans like the ones in the Liberal-Progressive states like California, New York and Illinois. In fact Illinois must be the hate capital of the free world. If we could export anything to improve America the fastest it would be every commentator from every national media network. There is one exception, Sean Hannity who needs to move South where he is beloved.
Thanks Ron, I will call you when the fish start biting again. Prove us wrong with facts. C Brewer
Stay with this — the answer is at the end.
