Helping Donald Trump save Americas freedoms!

OUR GOVERNMENT TODAY – GO, WHOA and NO!

I will be the first to admit that I would love to see America “United” again before I croak. In my life I watched as a boy when the people banded together and unbelievably won WWII only because we were united. I served in the US Navy during the Korean war when again the people were united. I watched America live through a great depression when again too many people were dirt poor but few gave up. Then unfortunately LBJ assumed the Presidency when John Kennedy was assassinated less than 15 miles where I was working that infamous day in Dallas. This was the beginning of the downhill slide in the 1960’s when American cowards surfaced and started the revolutionary mission to destroy the United States of America. A war in Vietnam was fought to help the politicians and bankers gain more control over the people. We paid with some 60,000  young American lives and ended up with eight years of the Clinton’s and eight more with the Obama’s.

Along came Reagan and some sanity surfaced and America again gained stature worldwide. The people again united to strengthen our Republic and we had a few years of prosperity and peace with Reagan, our last great leader until January 20, 2017. We still have wars in three Muslim countries that have killed a few more thousand young Americans to help the politicians and bankers. We can stay and fight in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq for a thousand years and it will never help the United States, Europe or anyone. Anyone, and I have, who spends time in the sandy expanse called the Middle East can see in a heartbeat that these people will never become westernized or Christians. Hell will freeze over before anyone will change there folks. Ask the Russians who were happy to see us bog down like they did in Afghanistan.  

Then the people voted to hope that Donald Trump could force Congress, the Supreme Court and the bloated Federal Government to again follow our Constitution and create jobs for Americans. For the last several years the Washington hierarchy  has decided that our Federal laws only apply to selective citizens and politicians. Even Presidents, especially Obama who even issued orders to ignore certain laws while our Judicial Branch sat on their Royal Robed butts and did nothing. Even worse Congress watched the laws they enacted ignored and decided to do nothing.

The Republicans won the whole taco, the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The only problem is they are about as organized as one-legged man at an ass kicking contest. At first they appeared ready to kick ass and take names. Unfortunately they discovered that they are leaderless. Paul Ryan is trying hard to help Trump get things done that he promised the folks. With the exception of a few dissidents the House is boldly moving forward. They have listened to the people who want action not stagnation. The folks want jobs. Ryan is leading the conservatives on a path back to common sense. Unless their wheels fall off the House, backed by the President are on the “GO”

The Senate, never a group to understand anything the past several years, is actually a body of pompous, arrogant and for most part useless debaters who could not even agree what day it is  unless someone bombed an American city again. They are equally divided into three segments. The Republicans are divided into some “Go’s, and some Whoa’s and the Democrats who have become 100% “no’s and continue to make the GOP look as stupid as they have become. God almighty could not get these Republicans to sing from one song book unless they were voting to increase their own salaries or retirement benefits. The RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) are getting braver each day and I hope Trump helps every one of these dissidents defeated in their next election cycle. The two main screamers, McCain and Graham should be honest and join the Demoncrats who they best support. Others are getting braver and need to be axed.

Hopefully Donald Trump will full fill his promise to drain the Washington swamp. I have no doubt he will change the way our government does business unless he is murdered like Justice Scalia. It would be nice if all of the Demoncrats were shipped to California, Oregon and Washington States. Then let them secede from the union This would allow the 13 million illegal aliens to be together again where they are accepted. Like an old saying about the the slaves which was “We should have picked our own cotton”, we should mow our own yards and harvest our own vegetables.   C Brewer    

 

FBI COVER-UP. MANDATED BY LORETTA LYNCH or OBAMA?

WHAT A SHAME THIS IS NOT ON ANY NEWS CHANNEL, EVEN FOX.

Every news service has had this and failed to report this to the public. Propaganda produced by Government employees probably gets them a bonus if it works and a promotion if it does get published. For any news service to ignore this should be against the law and their license cancelled. This would shut up the talking heads and rattle the pocketbook of shareholders if fined for ignoring it. America is sick. Anyone one who reads this and fails to share it should be ashamed. c bREWER

September 2, 2016

Mr. James Comey, Director

Federal Bureau of Investigation

  1. Edgar Hoover Building

935 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W.

Washington, D.C.  20535-0001

Sir,

I am writing regarding your public statement inJulJ, 2016 informing the American people that the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton was being closed without referring it to a Federal Grand Jury or the Attorney General of the U. S. for a decision whether to indict her.

Strangely, you eloquently laid out enough of the evidence deduced from the investigation to strongly indicate there was abundant evidence uncovered during the investigation and interview of her to not only indict but to convict her in Federal Court.  However, you personally re-worded and soft-pedaled the actions she took as Secretary of State describing her actions as “extremely careless” in using a personal email and un-secured server for her communications while Secretary of State. You rewrote the statute, which is not your job.

As a retired Special Agent of the FBI, I have standing to write this letter. My thirty years in law enforcement, including 22 years as a Special Agent with the FBI have given me the knowledge, expertis and experience to question and confront you for your perplexing actions, which (as you well know) were outside the normal standard operating procedure of the FBI and Federal judicial procedures. Some of the finest people in the world proudly carry the credentials of FBI Agent and you have soiled them and not allowed them to speak. But I will not be silent.

Sorry, but NO SIR, MS Clinton was not merely careless or extremely careless. She was not even negligent or grossly negligent (as the statute requires). Hillary Clinton was knowingly purposeful in her decisions and actions to set up a server under her exclusive control and possession to control what information was available to the American public and Congress regarding her actions as Secretary of State. Furthermore, she took those government owned communications into her personal possession after leaving her position and knowingly and willingly attempted to destroy them so her nefarious actions could never be known or used as evidence of her corrupt moral character against her.

Sir, what possessed you? Did you cave in to political pressure to unilaterally come to this decision? I fear that is the case, and Rule of Law be damned. I am embarrassed for and ashamed of you. You have set a precedent that can never be rectified and certainly not justified. Shame on you, Sir. You ought to resign right now in disgrace for what you have done to tarnish the reputation of the finest Law Enforcement Agency in the world for entirely political reasons.

Normally, an investigation will be assigned to an agent, or team of agents with one being the Case, or the lead investigator.  When the investigation is complete, an investigative report will be presented to the U.S. Attorney for the Federal District involved.   It would be the U.S. Attorney who decides whether to decline prosecution for that investigation. NOT the FBI agent. But in the Clinton investigation, YOU (unilaterally) decided not to forward the investigation to the U.S. Attorney or the Attorney General of the U.S. but, instead, personally made the decision not to prosecute her or even provide the information to a Federal Grand Jury.  You were wrong to take this upon yourself.

Sir, to indict a subject, only a preponderance of evidence, or 51% is needed for probable cause to exist. You did not think even that level of probability existed? Who do you think you are fooling? 

What judicial proceeding did you think you were following?

Throughout my years with the FBI, I (along with my agents) took great pride in conducting each investigation in an unbiased manner regardless of the subject’s position or standing in the community. Everything were treated equally under the law. But you, Sir, decided to allow this corrupt, evil and nasty human being to go free and unchallenged for her treasonous actions (yes, treasonous, in my opinion) which threatened the security of this nation.  Furthermore, you stopped short of investigating the Clinton Foundation as a RICO case (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization).  This is a RICO case if there ever was one. Even an untrained person can tell from the communications which were recovered that Hillary Clinton spent more time working for the Clinton Foundation while Secretary of State than on State Business.  It may be argued that Hillary did not do any State business UNLESS the Clinton Foundation benefited.  You decided to just let this uncomfortable truth alone without addressing it.

I will conclude with this:  Following my retirement from the FBI, I volunteered for a 12-month tour of duty in Afghanistan as a Law Enforcement Professional, embedded with U.S. forces as a subject matter expert in counter-terrorism investigations.  For most of that year I operated “outside the wire” patrolling with the troops, interviewing witnesses to IED incidents and gathering evidence on the bad guys.  The results of my work would then be reported through secure channels to the Commanding Officer.  All reports and communications were required to be transmitted via secure and encrypted devices.  Occasionally my remote location in the mountains of Afghanistan made transmission impossible and I would have to fly back to Bagram Air Base to securely report to the Commander of the battle space.   It would have been convenient if I could have just called the Commander on my personal cell phone or written him an email on my personal laptop.  But, had I done so I would have been reporting classified information via an unsecured device and it could have been compromised. These were, relative to Secretary of State communications, low level classifications of Secret.  Had I ever sent even one in such a manner I would have been prosecuted and sent to Federal Prison for 20 years or sos.  That is how serious this violation is considered.

Now, because of you, Hillary Clinton can continue her RICO activities and is running for President of the United States, the most powerful position in the world.  You have trampled on the Rule of Law and destroyed the trust of the American people in the FBI and in unbiased enforcement of the law.  How do you sleep at night? It is time for you to go and work for the Clinton Foundation.

Sincerely,

Hugh W. Galyean

(FBI Agent, Retired)

FOURTH OF JULY 2014!

SADLY IT IS JUST ANOTHER DAY FOR MOST AMERICANS.

As we watch our President divide Americans instead of uniting us, we have another day remembered by some as the day we became free from oppression. The majority of Americans, including some of my own family, have no idea what freedom cost in American lives to gain our independence. Some like myself do remember how many lives were lost to protect these freedoms in two world wars.

Most Americans today celebrate it as a holiday to avoid work. These same people look at war during their lifetime as a waste of money created by politicians to get re-elected and sadly they are correct when you study Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately we have lost thousands of American lives fighting these political wars. If we were attacked tomorrow like we were when I was a boy of eleven by the Japanese, America would lose. A country so divided by Obama would never get off welfare to build weapons and God forbid, who would volunteer to risk their life like the young men I watched as a boy. Some 500,000 never got back in WWII.

God bless our military that risk their lives to make sure half of America survives from the hard work of the other half who work and serve our country. Just keep ignoring the threats that will materialize or look forward to the civil war our President desires.

To celebrate the 4th of July 2014 I beg you to at least read every word what follows. I don’t know who wrote “THE FINAL INSPECTION” but they have my full respect. I hope this circles the globe. If it weren’t for the United States military, there’d be no United States of America.

 

“THE FINAL INSPECTION”

 

The Soldier stood and faced God,

Which must always come to pass.

He hoped his shoes were shining,

Just as brightly as his brass.

‘Step forward now, Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?’

 

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,

‘no, Lord, I guess I ain’t.

Because those of us who carry guns,

Can’t always be a saint.

I’ve had to work most Sundays,

And at times my talk was tough.

And sometimes I’ve been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,

That wasn’t mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime,

When the bills got just too steep.

 

And I never passed a cry for help,

Though at times I shook with fear.

And sometimes, God, forgive me,

I’ve wept unmanly tears.

 

I know I don’t deserve a place,

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around,

Except to calm their fears

If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,

It needn’t be so grand.

 

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don’t, I’ll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,

Where the saints had often trod.

 

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

‘Step forward now, you Soldier,

You’ve borne your burdens well.

 

Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,

You’ve done your time in Hell.’

~Author Unknown~

 

It’s the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press.

It’s the Soldier, not the poet who has given us the freedom of speech.

It’s the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It’s the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for our Military, dead and alive, please tell every freedom loving American you know to read this this.

 

“GOD PLEASE SAVE AMERICA FROM OUR OWN POLITICIANS!”

ILLUSION!

Wikipedia definition without optical and biological examples.

“An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. Though illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people. Illusions may occur with any of the human senses. Some illusions are based on general assumptions the brain makes during perception. These assumptions are made using organizational principles, an individual’s capacity for perceptual constancy” 

Obama is creating another “Illusion” with the civil war in Syria to achieve four objectives:

1. Ease the pressure from the looming fights over Obamacare and the debt ceiling with Congress.

2. Drag Congress into another war and have them share the blame for the many mistakes he has made.

3. Hope for Syria to drag others into the civil war by attacking Israel or Jordan or both.

4. Complete the Progressive-Liberal objective to create a Socialist Democracy to replace our Republic form of Democracy. 

Watching the Sunday morning news it was interesting to watch the majority American people and surprisingly the national media, agree that the government has gone mad. It is the first sign of common sense that has surfaced in many years. One thing that is disappointing to me is why the media ignores the parallel of the total failure that Obama and Clinton had in Libya. Now Obama and Kerry are trying to get Congress involved in approving an air attack on Syria that will not only fail but will likely create a war in that region that could kill millions including Israel and Jordan who are allies.

Bush, also a Progressive, proved with his personal war with Saddam Hussein and trying to make ignorant people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan accept civilized behavior is a waste of time. Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood control of Libya and Egypt and nothing good has happened so far. Libya is now another Afghanistan and if we stay on course in screwing up everything in Egypt, the radical Muslim Brotherhood will regain control again. Then we will have enemies in control of the Suez Canal and the Straits of Hormuz and really cause shock waves with the price of oil. Amazingly this appears to be Obama’s eventual objective and he knows true Muslims hate all Americans, Christians and Jews.

Trying to understand why Obama and Kerry want Syria, Iran, Lebanon, obviously the Palestinians and possibly Iraq to retaliate against Israel and Jordan is impossible. I personally feel that the long range objective is to continue to drain our weapons arsenal while simultaneously downsizing the military which is scary if true.

It is obvious to me that the Progressive-Liberal Clinton and Obama administrations hated Israel and believe the land Israel occupies belongs to the Palestinians and Syrians. The identical draining and downsizing of the military during the Clinton administration and Hillary’s actions in the Libyan failure and the Egyptian uprising have convinced me that Obama is hell-bent finishing what the Clinton’s started.

If anyone who reads this and desires to challenge my position I will be happy to post your rebuttal unedited on this blog. I have been challenged as becoming more radical in my beliefs when the radical activity is in Washington DC and the majority of Americans really do not even care.

It is apparent that some 90% of Americans do not desire any more war for any reason. That percentage has and will change if we are attacked again but if we keep draining and downsizing the military will we be safe?  

A specific concern arises when you recall that one of the reported reasons we were in Libya was to prevent arms that were captured by the rebels from getting to Syria. We were thanked for our help by sacrificing our Ambassador and other brave Americans to being ruthlessly killed by the same people we helped win the civil war. If we fail to support the military in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood will gain control of weapons far beyond what they obtained in Libya. If we help the same enemy get control of Syria they will have enough weapons to even include control of Turkey, another ally and member of NATO.

This morning the news reports that the enemy we helped in Libya likely has control of over 1100 ground to air missiles we know existed. Can you imagine what the simultaneous destruction and loss of life if this could cause if these were used to shoot down airliners with thousands of people killed. They could target Americans from worldwide locations and make 911 look puny in the number of Americans killed in New York. Hopefully I am wrong but I would be hard pressed to board a flight anywhere in the world next Wednesday or any September the eleventh in the future.

The pressure on Congress to support the attack on Syria might make more sense if these 1100 missiles are known to be in Syria and we know where they are located. If we do know where they are, what is the real reason Obama and Kerry have not already destroyed them?

Some day we will know the exact reason why Obama has purposely divided the American people and caused us to hate each other. Making the United States look like a country of greedy capitalists taking advantage of the poor to the entire world is a shame.

Gaining control of the weak, the poor, misguided youth, Blacks, Hispanics and the naive women was a masterful and peaceful victory for the Progressive-Liberal cause. They have been trying to gain absolute control to destroy the Republic and the free enterprise system for over 100 years. Using Obama like a puppet they have watched him destroy the future of the very people who stood behind his “illusions” of helping them live without working and live happily ever after. Folks, there is no free ride, happiness and freedom if you can’t defend yourself.

Does anyone besides me wonder how many more Americans will be sacrificed before the people who have been brainwashed by the Master of Illusions and laughingstock of the world, wake up and unite?

If Syria has violated international law let the world take action through the United Nations. If the United Nations is not recognized by the United States as the worlds body to control international law why do we waste so much money having them based in America? If Congress allows this action we have violated international law, haven’t we?

DECEPTION

Writing about the subject is going to be fun. To be consistent with my recent series of single subject words I have returned to Wikipedia for the following definition. I have deleted parts of the rather long description to focus on exposing how President Obama has proven to be the best Master of Deception in the history of the world. Read every word carefully and you can relate it to his actions if you care. Sadly the majority of Americans, including Congress, the Supreme Court and our military leaders, really don’t care.

“Deception, beguilement, deceit, bluff, mystification and subterfuge are acts to propagate beliefs that are not true, or not the whole truth (as in half-truths or omission). Deception can involve dissimulation, propaganda, and sleight of hand, as well as distraction, camouflage, or concealment. There is also self-deception, as in bad faith.

Deception is a major relational transgression that often leads to feelings of betrayal and distrust between relational partners. Deception violates relational rules and is considered to be a negative violation of expectations. Most people expect friends, relational partners, and even strangers to be truthful most of the time.

Deception includes several types of communications or omissions that serve to distort or omit the complete truth. Deception itself is intentionally managing verbal and/or nonverbal messages so that the message receiver will believe in a way that the message sender knows is false. Intent is critical with regard to deception. Intent differentiates between deception and an honest mistake.

The five primary forms of deception are:

1. Lies: making up information or giving information that is the opposite or very different from the truth.

2. Equivocations: making an indirect, ambiguous, or contradictory statement.

3. Concealments: omitting information that is important or relevant to the given context, or engaging in behavior that helps hide relevant information.

4. Exaggerations: overstatement or stretching the truth to a degree.

5. Understatements: minimization or downplaying aspects of the truth.

For other uses of “deception” and “deceit,” see Deception (disambiguation) and Deceit (disambiguation). For other uses of “mystification” and “mystify,” see Mystify (disambiguation).”

A perfect outline of Obama’s methods to eventually rule the world. He underestimated that leadership in most of the world understands he is a con man and are watching us destroy ourselves.

WOW, if just one national newspaper, TV network or a single Senator had made “deception” comparisons of every crisis he has used to hide his failures and divert national attention we would have had someone else urging us to bomb Syria. Obama was elected to create jobs and still ignores the facts that real Americans want to work, succeed rather than become Involuntary Slaves I previously have written about. Lack of jobs, Obamacare, illegal aliens and runaway spending are our most critical problems and now we are using Syria to divert attention.

Obama has transformed power and politics to a level never before seen. He has mesmerized and manipulated Americans, including Congress, who feel honor bound to support the office of President. When will the people get enough of his treachery and the hate he has for free enterprise and our Republic form of freedom.

Sadly for Americans most of the remaining sane people and their leaders in other countries have seen through Obama’s charades and laugh and feel sorrow for us. He has destroyed the image of an America that solves its domestic problems without destroying the economy of the entire world. If Muslims desire to kill each other, which they have for centuries, rather than focus their misguided anger on Christians and Jews, leave them alone.

We have wasted trillions trying to change the archaic cultures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt and the CIA, NSA and God only knows where else and failed. When will the free world leave these folks alone to suffer their chosen live styles?

When they attack our allies we should protect them at all costs as we have in the past. If they possess weapons that can kill us or our allies we should destroy them.

Using Syria to avoid facing our own problems will solve nothing. Throwing Israel under the bus to create a wider crisis is inhuman and Assad has vowed to attack them already.

Stop the Obamacare disaster, open up drilling for more oil, re-establish the WPA and the CCC’s to work on the crumbling infrastructure as Roosevelt did in the 1930’s. Give people work for their welfare.

A message to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and every Republican in Congress. Insist on canceling Obamacare before one dime is spent on wasting Trillions shooting Cruise Missiles into Syria. That way Obama can save his ass from making his line-in-the-sand promises and you all can actually help the American people for a change. He has made you all look like brainless puppets. A future article will be on “Puppets” and I will show how he has used you with specific facts. If you fail to stand up over the Syrian crisis, that is over two years old, you will have proved that you are all brainless.

WHO SHOULD WE FEAR?

The first time our government disarmed the people was when we confiscated their property and exiled them to a life of poverty. We still treat the Indians worse than aliens we allow to enter as immigrants. We even treat Indians worse than the illegals who break the law and sneak in. Now we are racing to grant them citizenship.

Do you agree with the Obama’s policy to appease and open your arms to radical Muslim’s worldwide and welcome them as neighbors? With religious beliefs and written scripture requiring Muslims to kill anyone who does not believe in Mohammad makes me nervous, does it bother you? These people were not born to hate us. They are radicalized by Clerics that are dedicated to destroy Christian’s world-wide. Not all Muslims are radical or extremists. I spent several years working in Indonesia with Muslims that are as peaceful as my neighbors. I also worked in seven Muslim countries in the Middle East I would not revisit or found anyone I would want as neighbors.

Why does our government welcome, educate and feed these radicals? We educate them in professions that show them how to make explosives and use weapons. How many times do we have to turn the other cheek and watch these people kill more Americans? For some strange reason, we also allow the Muslim clerics and extremists in America to encourage and incite them to kill us. Why does our government ignore the facts?

Now we know that the Boston killing spree had at least six or more individuals involved including ones mother. By the way we still provide food stamps to the parents of two that moved back to Russia two years ago. We still have no facts about who fed and educated the actual killers that planted the bombs. Another question, who killed and maimed many Americans here in Texas at Ft. Hood? A Muslim our government trained to kill people in our own army.

As a boy I watched our government round-up every Japanese American citizen and imprison them for the attack on Pearl Harbor. They even confiscated their property and most had never even been to Japan. They did not kill one American.

We have lost thousands of American lives to combat Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other places far away from America. Are you afraid of these people on the other side of the world?

Why do we keep allowing radical Muslims to even visit, much less granting them citizenship by the thousands? Make them stay where they belong and they will eventually devour each other. It is time for Congress to consider rounding up the radicals and imprisoning them like we did the Japanese who did not kill anyone.

I fear our government leaders in Washington D.C. far more than Muslim terrorists in Afghanistan. Can you imagine how the Indians must have dreaded becoming friendly with the Pilgrims after they faced lives worse than slavery, in fact most still face life worse than being in prison today.

Who decided to rob the bond holder’s equity in General Motors and give it free to the Unions? Obama and Congress! Who decided to systematically rob the personal wealth of successful Americans by allowing the financial crisis as a cover to create a Socialist nation? Bush, Obama and Congress! Today our government is systematically robbing the personal wealth of all Americans to share with aliens, lazy Americans, socialistic universities to brainwash the youth and women. Why, to buy enough votes to remain in power forever.

If the people do not rally together our government will eventually outlaw the right to bear arms to protect your family. Just as they did to the Indians. Every Despot, Dictator, Emperor and nut-case in history gained control of nations by confiscating the weapons and wealth of the people. Then they brainwashed the weak and stupid to police and protect them from losing power.

I don’t know who scares you the most, but currently Obama and Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, scare me more than any Muslim alive. They have ruined our country with lust for power and made themselves a totally uncontrolled enemy of the people. They refuse to live by the laws and regulations they impose on the people. That my friends is tyranny and it must be eliminated at the voting booth before they eliminate the right to vote which comes next.

Think about this Sunday and Monday when schools in many states are closed and most of our illegal aliens  celebrate Cinco de Mayo as a holiday. When our government eventually makes  September 11  a holiday to honor the dead Americans in New York and Benghazi, will it be for the benefit for over 3000 Dead Americans or the Muslims that killed them. Government power in America today has zero common sense and is out of control.

Wake up America before there are no more roses to smell!

LIBERALS AVOID THIS PROTEST, WHY?

I decided to post this letter with hope that every young American, liberal university professor, President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Polosi, every Liberal in Congress, the multitude of “Occupiers”, aliens and women voters will read it. The language may be a little salty but it does explain why this great young American is attempting to get people with any common sense to understand that we will never change these people’s way of life. I feel certain this Marine would welcome some support for his concerns but Liberals are too busy bitching about Americans having too many freedoms. Liberals all belong in Afghanistan to help convince them to just hug and kiss each other and give up their weapons.   C Brewer 

Bless this young man. He is articulate and has a flare for colorful language and descriptive prose….Scorpions, Chiggers and Sand Fleas; great letter, a must read! Ron

FROM THE SAND PIT.

It’s freezing here. I’m sitting on hard cold dirt between rocks and shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush Mountains, along the Dar’yoi Pomir River, watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a cave. A classic”stake out”, my friend and no pizza delivery for thousands of miles.

I also glance at the area around my ass every ten to fifteen seconds to avoid another scorpion sting. I’ve actually given up battling the chiggers and sand fleas, but the scorpions give a jolt like a cattle prod. Hurts like a bastard. The antidote tastes like transmission fluid, but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my pack.

The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and drink water. That requires couriers and that’s where an old bounty hunter like me comes in handy. I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage facilities, type the info into my handheld computer up link. I shoot the coordinates up to the satellite and onto the air commanders where to drop the hardware. We bash some heads for a while, then I track and record the new movement.

It’s all about intelligence. We haven’t even brought in the snipers yet. These scurrying rats have no idea what they’re in for. We are but days away from cutting off supply lines and allowing the eradication to begin. But you know me, I’m a romantic. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This country blows, man. It’s not even a country. There are no roads, there’s no infrastructure, there’s no government. This is an inhospitable, rock pit, shit hole, ruled by eleventh century warring tribes. There are no jobs here like we know jobs.

Afghanistan offers two ways for a man to support his family: join the opium trade or join the army. That’s it. Those are your options. Oh, I forgot, you can also live in a refugee camp and eat plum-sweetened, crushed beetle paste and squirt mud like a goose with stomach flu, if that’s your idea of a party. But the smell alone of those ‘tent cities of the walking dead’, is enough to hurl you into the poppy fields to cheerfully scrape bulbs for eighteen hours a day.

I’ve been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks and Turkmen and even a couple of Pushtuns, for over a month and a half now, and this much I can say for sure; these guys, all of ’em, are Huns…actual, living Huns.. They LIVE to fight. It’s what they do. It’s ALL they do. They have no respect for anything, not for their families, nor for each other, nor for themselves. They claw at one another as a way of life. They play polo with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human cockfights to defend the family honor. Huns, roaming packs of savage, heartless beasts who feed on each other’s barbarism. Cavemen with AK-47’s. Then again, maybe I’m just cranky.

I’m freezing my ass off on this stupid hill because my lap warmer is running out of juice and I can’t recharge it until the sun comes up in a few hours. Oh yeah! You like to write letters, right? Do me a favor, Bizarre.

Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and that awful, sneering, pompous Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban ‘smart.’ They are not smart. I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary because the word they are looking for is ‘cunning.’ The Taliban are cunning, like jackals and hyenas and wolverines. They are sneaky and ruthless, and when confronted, cowardly. They are hateful, malevolent parasites who create nothing and destroy everything else. Smart. Pfft. Yeah, they’re real smart.

They’ve spent their entire lives reading only one book (and not a very good one, as books go) and consider hygiene and indoor plumbing to be products of the devil. They’re still figuring out how to work a Bic lighter. Talking to a Taliban warrior about improving his quality of life is like trying to teach an ape how to hold a pen; eventually he just gets frustrated and sticks you in the eye with it.

OK, enough. Snuffle will be up soon, so I have to get back to my hole. Covering my tracks in the snow takes a lot of practice, but I’m good at it.

Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets and move on with your lives. The story line you are getting from CNN and other main stream news agencies is utter bullshit and designed not to deliver truth but rather to keep you glued to the screen through the commercials. We’ve got this one under control.

The worst thing you guys can do right now is sit around analyzing what we’re doing over here, because you have no idea what we’re doing and really, you don’t want to know. We are your military and we are doing what you sent us here to do.

THE GAME OF CHICKEN!

The phrase game of chicken is used as a metaphor for a situation where two parties engage in a showdown where they have nothing to gain and only pride stops them from backing down.

When I was a boy over 70 years ago I was introduced to the game of chicken. With little money for entertainment the neighborhood children dreamed up things to entertain each other. This was a time when we had parents that made sure we did not annoy other people, destroy their property or maim and kill them like we read about in Chicago and other Democratic inner city bastions.

Our juvenile game of chicken was for two of us to go to opposite ends of the dirt street, mount our bicycles and peddle as fast as possible towards each other. The one who swerved away to avoid a head on collision was declared the “Chicken” and shunned by the other kids watching. Obviously if one did not chicken out you had two banged up bicycles and two kids rewarded with peer esteem and the need for bandages and bike repair. Both usually administered by the other kids.

Wikipedia describes the adult version as being; “Two drivers of cars on a single lane bridge from opposite directions. The first to swerve away yields the bridge to the other. If neither player swerves, the result is a costly deadlock in the middle of the bridge, or a potentially fatal head-on collision. It is presumed that the best thing for each driver is to stay straight while the other swerves (since the other is the “chicken” while a crash is avoided). Additionally, a crash is presumed to be the worst outcome for both players. This yields a situation where each player, in attempting to secure his best outcome, risks the worst.”

We watched President Kennedy win a game of Chicken with the Russians in Cuba and win. We watched Lyndon Johnson lose a game of Chicken with the Vietnamese. Reagan won again over the Russians at the Berlin wall. Bush #1 and #2 believe they won in Iraq. It is a no brainer that Bush #2 and Obama will lose in Afghanistan as political wars are not winnable.   

We are now watching a President who was born and bred to take the game of “CHICKEN” to a new level. He has decided to divide America into two teams and arm one team with a decided advantage. All of the government resources will be provided to one team and the other team will only have God and each other to play the game.

We now have the Blue States on one end of the bridge and the Red States on the other end preparing for a for a Civil war version of the Chicken game. Leaders Obama, Polosi and Reed for the Blue States and Boehner and Mitchell representing only some of the Red States. 

Obama has proved that he can rally 95% of the African-Americans, 98% of the academic leaders, 100% of the dead, and a majority of women and illegal aliens into a fighting force as he won re-election. Fraud could have helped but as he controls the Justice Department and we will never know.

The Red State team is not well-organized and proved that during the last election

One thing in this game of Chicken that is different is who will be hurt the most when we have a head on collision that must happen someday. America will obviously lose this game of Chicken as no other country is involved. There can’t be a winner, as regardless of the outcome, we will be much weaker both militarily and financially.

The real losers will be the youth, the women and the aliens. The dead have nothing to lose and the politicians will eventually be reduced in rank to just ordinary Americans like they were in the past.

God help the young Americans, some unborn, in finding a way to pay for this political ego trip that is so totally avoidable if we just had leaders in Washington rather that con men. God bless Ronald Reagan, our last American Leader. I feel pretty sure that Reagan and Mickey Mouse’s vote in California last November were for Obama.

I certainly hope that the voters, who wanted to see this “Chicken Train Wreck” happen, will be happy working for the Chinese. Unless common sense is applied soon, they will own all of our assets eventually.

OBAMA’S WAR -PART TWO

One of my friends, Ron Jenkins, neighbors sent this to him. It was deeply motivated to post this message. C Brewer

It is compelling and bodes not well for our President in November’s election, at least not amongst a certain segment of the population.  And, no, he doesn’t purport to speak for all military services or retiree’s; no one could or should do that.   

The following was written by one of my former students. When I knew him, he was sixteen years old. I lost track of him when I left Virginia in 1966, but I never forgot him, and I always wondered if his name was on that black, granite wall in Washington, DC.  I found him a couple of years ago, thanks to Face Book and when we reconnected, he told me about his service in Vietnam and about all the boys I had taught, who came home in body bags.

This is not something that has been forwarded over and over but something that Bob wrote on the afternoon of Sept 14th.  He comes from a long line of military men who served their country and were proud to do so. Now his son is scheduled to go to Afghanistan in a few months. His niece will leave in a few weeks. I promised him I would forward it. I owe him and all those other kids, that much. It’s the least I can do.             

He writes:

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before.

Thirty have died in August.

The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-mast for some of the local Sihks that were killed by the Taliban insurgents. 

There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president. It has taken on a dangerous tone.

No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.

Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform.

But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members.

This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond. The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls.

It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this man who just lets our soldiers die.  

Thanks Ron

OBAMAS WAR!

The media only skimmed over the recent military slaughter and equipment destruction in Afghanistan. Maybe enough bloggers will try to see this report to make all Americans sick to their stomach. C Brewer

Written by Jack Kelly   

The war in Afghanistan effectively ended last week.  We lost.

The last of the surge troops President Barack Obama sent to Afghanistan were quietly withdrawn.  They did not leave in triumph:

*Taliban guerrillas dressed in U.S. Army uniforms attacked Camp Bastion in southern Afghanistan, Sept. 14, destroying 8 Marine Harrier jump jets.  It was our greatest loss of aircraft since the Vietnam war.  For VMA-211, it was the greatest loss since the siege of Wake Island in World War II.  The Harrier has been out of production for a decade, so the losses can’t be replaced.

More Harriers likely would have been lost had not the squadron commander, LtCol Christopher Raible, armed with only a pistol, battled the heavily armed guerrillas.  He and another Marine were killed during the raid, which was so sophisticated some defense analysts think it was plotted by Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence Agency.

“The Taliban’s major vulnerability is our mastery of the air, but if they can negate it, we are approaching tactical equality because they have home turf advantage,” said former Special Forces soldier Michael Yon, who’s spent more time in Afghanistan than any other war correspondent.

*The attack on Camp Bastion happened on a Friday.  Two British and four American soldiers were killed by Afghan policemen the following Saturday and Sunday.  After these attacks, NATO suspended most joint operations with Afghan security forces.

“We’re to the point now where we can’t trust these people,” a senior military official told NBC’s Pentagon correspondent.  So far this year, 59 NATO troops have been killed in “green on blue” attacks.

As of Monday (9/24), 1,493 Americans have been killed in Afghanistan, 70 percent of them since Barack Obama became president.  About 15 percent of NATO troops killed this year have been killed by our purported Afghan allies.  “Green on blue” attacks were virtually unheard of four years ago.

“The training mission is the foundation of the current strategy,” said Joshua Foust, a journalist who reports on Central Asia. “Without that mission, the strategy collapses. The war is adrift, and it’s hard to see how anyone can avoid a complete disaster at this point.”

Spencer Ackerman, who writes about national security for Wired magazine, said failure in Afghanistan has “implications for the other wars the U.S. is fighting.”

“Imagine yourself as a Yemeni insurgent,” he said.  The lesson you might draw from Afghanistan is that instead of fighting the government and its American advisors, “a smarter strategy is to join them – to go through training, in preparation for the moment when, perhaps, you can get close enough to the Americans to open fire or detonate a bomb.”

Defeat comes as no surprise to me.  Thanks to Afghanistan’s primitiveness; Pakistan’s enmity (the Taliban is largely a creation of the ISI), and the corruption, incompetence and duplicity of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, our “nation-building” effort there was doomed, I’ve written for years.

Or to Army LtCol. Daniel Davis, who traveled more than 9,000 miles in Afghanistan in 2011.  “In all of the places I visited, the tactical situation was bad to abysmal,” he said.

But defeat may come as a shock to those who believed President Obama when he said Sept. 1:  “We’ve broken the Taliban’s momentum in Afghanistan, and begun the transition to an Afghan lead.”

Despite its import, the bleak war news attracted little attention from the news media.  In the wake of the 9/11/2012 attacks in Libya and Egypt, this is perhaps understandable.  But there has been little coverage of the Afghan war all year.

If George W. Bush were president, “there would be continuous coverage of the disarray in Afghanistan: the soldiers we’re training are shooting us, the corruption is intensifying, and the opium trade spreading,” said Prof. Walter Russell Mead, who teaches foreign policy at Bard College.

“These stories wouldn’t be on the back pages,” he said.  “They’d be perceived as major news with profound implications for America’s global position and the Sunday shows and nightly TV news round ups would be full of talking heads endlessly analyzing each wrinkle of the failure.”

Defeat in Afghanistan is a big deal — especially since we still have 68,000 troops in harm’s way.  It should have been reported — even though it is embarrassing to President Obama.
