"Gunny G: Where Today Is Our Alamo/John Wayne and His Letter From The Dictator To Himself…

“The romantic sub-plot between Davy Crockett and Linda Cristal is clearly there as a nod to cinematic convention. How do you draw the female audience into a movie about fighting? In some ways the love interest is certainly formulaic, but I still think it works.
It affords Crockett the opportunity to show a tender side and the way he employs Flaca to write a letter in Spanish to himself, supposedly from Santa Anna, to illustrate to his men how the Mexican Dictator feels about their presence, is an effective plot device.”

Judge orders killer released on compassionate grounds\nRichard Keech, 89, was serving a life term for shooting his son-in-law to death in Long Beach in 1996. He suffers from dementia. The judge says there's no obvious benefit to his further imprisonment.\n\nBy Victoria Kim\n\n10:06 PM PDT, October 5, 2009\n\nIn a quiet residential neighborhood in Long Beach 13 years ago, Dick Keech fired four shots at his son-in-law, who lay face-down on a neighbor's lawn, bleeding from an earlier gunshot wound.\n\n"It's all over," he said later to a neighbor who ran out at the sound. "He won't bother anyone anymore."\n\nOn Monday, a Long Beach judge said he would grant Keech, 89, the compassion he did not show his 47-year-old son-in-law, Nick Candy, at the time of the killing in 1996. Judge William T. Garner ordered Keech, who was serving a life term for murder, released on grounds that he is medically incapacitated. The World War II veteran suffers from progressive dementia and an accompanying "sundowning" syndrome causing severe confusion, depression and terror, according to a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation report recommending his release. He has difficulty swallowing, spends most of his days confined to his bed or his geriatric chair, and is unable to do anything on his own, the report said.

Obama’s Numerous Links with International Marxism Exposed (Re Tom Fife)~ John Charlton

Obama’s Numerous Links with International Marxism Exposed

AN INTERVIEW WITH TREVOR LOUDON by John Charlton

Mr. Trevor Loudon (Sept. 14, 2009) — Revelations that Obama was not just chummy with Marxists and Socialists throughout his life, but even may have been recruited by the KGB, first surfaced with Tom Fife, the physicist’s testimony (see www.rense.com for audio file).

More recently, a New Zealand researcher has obtained documents which connect the dots, and seemingly confirm the Fife testimony.

To get a better understanding of the Communists network in America, I requested an interview with Trevor Loudon, of New Zealand Research Assosciates, who has spent much of his life investigating international marxism and its operatives. Such is Loudon’s authority, that Media Matters recently named him the “Blogger who nailed Van Jones.”

What follows is a highly informative interview with Mr. Loudon, which is a must read for all thoughtful American citizens in the present national crisis.

The Post & Email interviewed Mr. Loudon by email, at his residence in Christchurch, New Zealand.

TOM HENNESSY: Time to let prisoner, a WWII POW, go home to die

Prisoner Richard Keech, shown during his 1997 trial, should be allowed to go home to die with his family. (Press-Telegram file photo)

Nearing his 90th birthday, Richard Keech is confined to a medical unit at the High Desert State Prison in Susanville.

His family says he stays alive on Ensure, a nutritional drink, and on weekly letters sent from Long Beach by his wife, Kay. Prison staffers read the letters to her husband, whose sight is failing.

The 1997 trial of Keech made area headlines. A prisoner-of-war during World War II, the one-time Marine defended the murder of his son-in-law, calling it a consequence of post-traumatic stress syndrome brought on by his incarceration in a Japanese prison camp.

“My father is in prison because he killed my abusive husband to protect my son, my mother, and me,” his daughter Nancy said in a recent advertisement she ran in the Press-Telegram.

With the family trying for a compassionate discharge that would give their patriarch a brief stay at home, the ad sought letters of support from readers.

Re “Taps for Master Gunnery Sergeant John Marjanov, USMC”

I continue to receive, since 2002 now, e-mail from Marines who claim to have known the MGySgt; that he had been awarded the VC and others; that this is not so, etc.–in any event, I have never seen any confirmation or denial, official, semi-official regarding any of the above–if anyone has some good solid information on this I would like to be informed.

Yep—it won’t work because “they” are by far superior at dirty fighting than the good guys are.
Remember the British too thought that the Americans fought unfairly.”They” are far more experienced/adept/forceful, etc. in these things.

In the long run, “they” will/have prevail what with more voters/activists, etc. to vote, e.g., democraps, the dead, illegals, etc. all voting at least once!

Gunny G:

So just who the hell is this guy Saul Alinski?

Before Obama I do not recall hearing of him, though now his name is frequently mentioned in connection with both Hillary Clinton and Obama.

So I finally picked up a copy of his book, Rules For Radicals. the other day. Interesting book and an interesting guy–an eye-opener for those interested in what’s happening in America today.

The following is some online information regarding this.

********************************

(Excerpt from Wikipedia)

“The documentary The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky and His Legacy,[5] states that “Alinsky championed new ways to organize the poor and powerless that created a backyard revolution in cities across America.” Many important community and labor organizers came from the “Alinsky School,” including Ed Chambers. Alinsky formed the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in 1940, and Chambers became its Executive Director after Alinsky died. Since the IAF’s formation, hundreds of professional community and labor organizers and thousands of community and labor leaders have attended its workshops. Fred Ross, who worked for Alinsky, was the principal mentor for Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.[6][7] In Hillary Clinton’s senior honors thesis at Wellesley College, Clinton noted that Alinsky’s personal efforts were a large part of his method.[8] She later noted that although she agreed with his notion of self-empowernment she disagreed with his assessment that the system could only change from the outside.[8] In her memoir, Living History, Hillary Clinton wrote that Alinsky offered her a job after she graduated from Wellesley College, but she chose instead to attend Yale Law School...

Gunny G Inquiry: Re POTUS Richard M. Nixon At Pendleton Parade Ground - Fallen Through The Cracks of History? Re Overjoyed troops swarm Obama as he makes first presidential visit to Baghdad

Gunny G Inquiry: Re POTUS Richard M. Nixon At Pendleton Parade Ground - Fallen Through The Cracks of History? Re Overjoyed troops swarm Obama as he makes first presidential visit to Baghdad

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2224637/posts ***** Re POTUS Richard M. Nixon At Pendleton Parade Ground - Fallen Through The Cracks of History?

Well….let me just say I have some doubts as to the above “Baghdad” headline… But it does serve to remind me of April 30, 1971–I think that date is correct, and the occasion was probably the return of the 1st Marine Division to Camp Pendleton, California from the RVN.

Does anyone here recall/ever run across documentation of President Nixon visiting the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton when he was mobbed by the troops after speaking and ceremonies, and carried around the parade ground on the shoulders of the troops?????

It was a sight to behold.

I know this one to be the genuine article as I was there at the time.

For some reason or other there seems to be no record of this–at least not what I’m looking for, i.e., photos and/or video– although there was TV coverage, etc. of this event at the time.

Just another of those things that seem to have disappeared/fallen through the cracks of history. I have searched the ‘Net and there seems to be no photos/videos available.

DID JESUS GIVE US THE NAME OF THE ANTICHRIST?
7/27/09 • Youtube
You will want to ponder this one from beginning to end. See the evidence for yourself – right out of the Hebrew Dictionary and the Word of God. BARAQ=lightning in Hebrew BAMAH=the heights in Hebrew Jesus said – I saw Satan fall as lightning (Baraq) from the heavens or heights (Bamah). IT is plain and simple. Probably just a coincidence – but INDISPUTABLE as to the word associations.


So – the film was created. Sorry if you are an obamamaniac or a bible ignoramous, but there it is. Just an interesting word association. The film does NOT proclaim that BHO “IS” the AC

Re: “This was a slap in the face of every Marine of yesterday, o

That "slap-in-the-face" term has been gnawing at my old mind-housing-group, and I finally recalled where I first heard it used relative to Marines....

Back when WW II had first begun WW I Army officer Donovan and FDR had tried to convince the Major General Commandant that he (Donovan) should be commissioned a Marine Brigadier General and the USMC would become under him what eventually later became the OSS, forerunner of the CIA--in any case the Marine Corps didn't buy the whole idea, and Donovan soon ended up with his OSS, although a lot of Marines individually did serve in the OSS througout WW II....
