Gunny G: Was The Republican Party Ever The Party of Freedom?

Was it ever? Really? Some folks don’t think so.

Gunny G

*****

“The embarrassing truth—the brontosaurus in the broom closet that nobody wants to talk about—is that the Republican Party was never the party of freedom. That Goldwater business in the 1960s was a fluke, immediately snuffed out by “older, wiser heads” in the GOP like those of Nelson Rockefeller, Weeping Willy Scranton, Henry Cabot Lodge, and George Romney. The Republican Party was created in the 1850s by northeastern mercantilists just like them, to crush the hopes of poor southerners for individual liberty and independence, and keep them bound in serfdom, paying 80 percent of all taxes collected in America.” ~ L. Neil Smith

Authorities in Kiev, Ukraine, deny spraying of “aerosolized medication” by aircraft over city.

The office of Emergency Response in the district of Desniansko, Kiev, are tonight (30th Oct.) strongly refuting reports that light aircraft were spraying a substance over the city intended to counter a “swine flu pandemic” in Ukraine.

It was reported that light aircraft were seen over the Forest market area of the city (close to the Forest metro station) and they were spraying an aerosol substance intended to “counter swine flu”, this of course would constitute forced medication of the population.

The editors of local newspapers in Kiev received dozens of phone calls from concerned residents and shop owners in the Forest market area of the city reporting they had observed several light airplanes circling in the sky during the day spraying an unidentified aerosol into the atmosphere.

Retailers and local business people reported they were advised to “stay indoors” during the day by local authorities.

Local newspapers contacted government administrators in Kiev and were told that “no permission had been granted today (30th Oct.) for small aviation aircraft to fly within the city limits”. Also local FM radio stations in Kiev were regularly refuting the reports during broadcasts today, apparently under duress from local authorities.

Reports of helicopters and light airplanes spraying aerosols over Kiev, Lviv, Ternopil, and other cities throughout Ukraine are tonight flooding online forums and websites, hundreds of people have verified the reports with their own eye-witness accounts.

The President Who Told The Truth…
The President Who Told The Truth

The President Who Told The Truth

(Video +Text)

The inspiration for these quotes came from a documentary entitled Evidence of Revision. It’s a series of five videos, each about an hour and a half long that you can find on Google Video. I would highly recommend finding the time to watch it. Once you do – you’ll be left with some strong doubt as to who killed this man. More significant to the here and now – you’ll realize that the completion of a Presidential Commission of inquiry does not mean that the public is in possession of the truth – I’m no 9/11 conspiracy theorist – but that doesn’t mean I have to consider the commissions report to be anything more than toilet paper.

Here are some JFK quotes that you’ve likely never heard. I would ask the question – when will we ever hear a President utter such words again?

The Founders Great Mistake By Garrett Epps

The Founders Great Mistake By Garrett Epps

Excerpts Below

The modern presidency is primarily the intellectual handiwork not of the Framers but of one FramerAlexander Hamilton. Hamiltons idea of the presidency can be found in a remarkable speech he gave to the convention, on June 18, 1787. In it, Hamilton argued that the president should serve for life, name Cabinet members without Senate approval, have an absolute veto on legislation, and have the direction of war once authorized or begun. The president would be a monarch, Hamilton admitted, but an elective monarch.

Hamiltons plan was so far from the mainstream of thought at the convention that none of its provisions was ever seriously discussed. Nonetheless, Hamilton was and remains the chief theorist of the presidency, first in writing his essays for The Federalist and then in serving as George Washingtons secretary of the Treasury. In this latter role, acting as Washingtons de facto prime minister, Hamilton took full advantage of the vagueness and brevity of Article II, laying the groundwork for an outsize presidency while the war-hero Washington was still in office.

In The Federalist, Hamilton had famously proclaimed th

The Subtle Art of Beer Snobbery
Modern Drunkard magazine ^ | October, 2009 | Frank Rich

Posted on Monday, November 02, 2009 8:15:14 PM by dynachrome

While wine snobs have blighted the earth for thousands of years (you can bet there was at least one guy curling his lip at the vintage of Jesus’ first and best miracle), beer snobbery is a relatively young art, especially in the U.S.

This is because every beer in the country once tasted exactly the same. Oh sure, there were Bud lovers and MGD aficionados who would swear they could tell the difference, but if you gave them a blind taste test, you’d soon discover they’d just keep asking for another “test taste” until there wasn’t any beer left and they were passed out on your sofa.

Gunny G: Better Than A Sergeant? ~ Ask Chesty Puller!

[linked image]

The following is from LtCol Jon Hoffman's new book"Chesty...." Random House, 2001, page 365

"...The colonel put his arm around the platoon leader (who was wearing an NCO's jacket) and congratulated him: 'Great work, Sergeant.' Rickert recognized Devine and pointed out the mistake. Chesty was chagrined; he spat, said only 'Lieutenant?' and walked off. Devine, a mustang, was not upset. 'I knew, as most junior officers around me did, that he preferred sergeants to second lieutenants, but all the same, the junior officers were strong for him too.' A similar story circulated later about a captain who wanted to obtain a battlefield commission for one of his men because the NCO was 'better than a sergeant.' Chesty supposedly replied; 'Captain, there's nothing better than a sergeant.'35"

BETTER THAN A SERGEANT?
The following is from Col Alexander's, "A Fellowship Of Valor" The Battle History Of The U.S. Marine Corps. This book is from the History Channel's presentation of the same title.

By Joan Swirsky Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Back in October of 2008, when the subject of Obamas Constitutional eligibility to be president of the United States was just a blip on the radar screen of public awareness, I wrote an article about how easy it was to find my then -92-year-old mothers birth certificate.

Frankly, I didnt think finding my mothers birth certificate was possible, given the fact that she had been born in a farmhouse in Storrs, CT, along with nine of her 10 siblings, to parents who didnt speak English. Despairing that she would never be qualified to receive the care [in a nursing home} that she desperately needed, I set about to find the document, which I was sure had vanished in the unreliable record-keeping of 1913. When I called the third number, I explained to the woman who answered the phone that I was asking something impossible. I gave her my mothers first name and her fathers last name. Within four minutes, she said, Here it is! When I expressed my amazement, the woman said: Thats nothingwere routinely asked to find birth certificates from the 1800s, and we do that all the time! Total time it took me to find my mothers 1913, born-in-a-farmhouse birth certificate: 10 minutes!

Obama was born not in 1913, like my mother, but in 1961or perhaps in 1957, according to his MySpace page, which would make him 52, born supposedly in Hawaii before it became a state in 1959. So it was quite curious that not one cyber-sleuth could find an authentic, verifiable copy of his original vault copy birth certificate. Im not talking about the faux version Obama posted on his website, which was deemed the real thing by FactCheck.org, a truth-detecting site that is sponsored by the Annenberg Foundation, the same foundation that hired Obama and hi

Gunny G: Lil TidBitsThe Enemy Within

Perhaps hes made his judgments from George Clooneys movie Good Night and Good Luck that continued the smear campaign against Senator Joseph McCarthy while lionizing leftist reporter Edward R. Murrow. Beck wasnt born in 1935, so perhaps he is unaware in that year the leftist National Education Association promoted a summer school held in Moscow, Russia, at which commissars (czars) were to teach and DID teach hundreds of American teachers. Some of the biggest names in American Education including now deceased John Dewey were sponsors of that school along with such members of the mass liberal media as Edward R. Murrow who later dispensed pro-Soviet disinformation.

EXCERPTS...
*****

Apparently there was similar jockeying over the positioning of the Scott Shane story. In some east coast editions it ran on page eleven, with a trivializing introductory squib, Food for Conspiracy Theorists. In the California edition, headlined C.I.A. Is Still Cagey About Oswald Mystery, it was on page one above the fold.

One can assume that the Times decision to run the story was a momentous one not made casually. The same can probably be said of another recent remarkable editorial decision, to publish Tom Friedmans op-ed on September 29 about the very dangerous climate now in America, the same kind of climate here that existed in Israel on the eve of the Rabin assassination.

Friedman did not mention JFK at all, and his most specific reference was to a recent poll on Facebook asking respondents, Should Obama be killed? [3] Four days later the Wall Street Journal expressed similar concern, adding to the poll on Facebook asking whether the president should be assassinated, a column on a conservative Web site suggesting a military coup is in the works. [4]

Friedmans column broke a code of silence about the threats to Obama that had been in place ever since two redneck white supremacists (Shawn Adolf and Tharin Gartrell) were arrested in August 2008 for a plot to assassinate Obama with scoped bolt-action rifles. Andrew Gumbels story about them ran in the London Independent on November 16, 2008; of the fifteen related news stories in Lexis Nexis, only one, a brief one, is from a U.S. paper.

It is possible to take at face value the concern expressed by Friedman in his column. The Boston Globe, a New York Times affiliate, reported on October 18 that The unprecedented number of death threats against President Obama, a rise in racist hate groups, and a new wave of antigovernment fervor threaten to overwhelm the US Secret Service.

Master Gunnery Sergeant John NMN Marjanov enlisted in the United States Marine Corps on January 16, 1941 and went to Parris Island, SC for basic training. He was assigned to 5th Marine regiment at Quantico, VA.

He volunteered for the newly formed 1st Raider Battalion. Upon acceptance to the Raiders he was sent to Navy Parachute School at Lakebust, NJ; Commando School in Scotland; and Airborne training at the Army's base at Fort Benning, GA.

While he served with the Raiders in the Pacific Theatre, he participated and distinguished himself in campaign on Guadalcanal, New Britain, New Guinea and other classified missions.

He took part in the Pelelieu landings with 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, in Leyte with 2nd Battalion, 10th Marines, the invasion of Iwo Jima with the 2nd Battalion, 26th Marines, and the victory in Okinawa with the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines.

Toward the end of the Pacific Campaign he participated in the classified operations of mopping up Japanese war criminals in China, during which he was part of the capturing of General Yama****a. >

After the war, Master Gunnery Sergeant was involved in the protection of American and British interest in northern China against Chinese Communist guerrillas until he was transferred to Camp Lejuene, North Carolina.

When hostilities in Korea erupted, Master Gunnery Sergeant Marjanov was assigned to the 1st Marine Brigade in Korea. While there, he participated in the defense of the Pusan Perimeter, the amphibious invasion of Inchon, and the Chosin Reservoir campaign.

Because of his actions at the "Frozen Chosin", Master Gunnery Sergeant Majanov was knighted by the Queen of England and awarded the Victorian Cross the Order of the British Empire, 1st Order; Britain's equivalent to our Medal of Honor.

FAITH2ACTION
Socialism Communism scheduled for a vote in Senate
Exclusive: Janet Porter shares 1992 account about Soviet ‘Barack’ being groomed

Posted: February 10, 2009
1:00 am Eastern By Janet Porter
The cover of Newsweek proclaims: “We Are All Socialists Now.” In the Feb. 16, 2009, issue, Newsweek editors Jon Meacham and Evan Thomas write: “Whether we want to admit it or not the America of 2009 is moving toward a modern European state.” They blame President George W. Bush for laying the groundwork with his $700 billion bailout – which opened the door to Obama’s trillions more.


Bloomberg reported yesterday, “The stimulus package the U.S. Congress is completing would raise the government’s commitment to solving the financial crisis to $9.7 trillion … enough to send a $1,430 check to every man, woman and child alive in the world. It’s 13 times what the U.S. has spent so far on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to Congressional Budget Office data, and is almost enough to pay off every home mortgage loan in the U.S., calculated at $10.5 trillion by the Federal Reserve.”

Last week I wrote about the Socialist spending bill filled with partisan political paybacks not so cleverly disguised as “stimulus.” And now those in the Senate who represent you are negotiating not the concept of spending our way out of debt, but rather, how much and who – besides ACORN, leading the nation in voter fraud – will be the beneficiary of billions of your hard-earned tax dollars.

I called this bill Socialist.

Gunny G: Of Generals And Presidents

New York Times
October 21, 2009

Of Generals And Presidents

To the Editor:

Re How Generals Should Talk to Presidents (Op-Ed, Oct. 18):

John S. D. Eisenhower writes: These impossible situations, created partly by the framers of the Constitution in 1787 designated the president as the commander in chief, but at the same time they gave Congress the power to raise and support armies and navies. This division of authority between two branches of government puts the head of a military service in an untenable position. Officers owe their loyalty to the president.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The oath of office for all officers of the military services says nothing about loyalty to the president or any individual, but rather to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

All too often of late, officers who lead the armed forces have been called upon to do the president?s work and make the case for war to Congress and the nation. It is the job of the person with the bully pulpit to make that case, including the resources and the strategy to prosecute it successfully. It is the job of the senior military leadership to advise the president, and when he decides the course of action, to execute it successfully.

Thomas L. Wilkerson, Annapolis, Md., Oct. 19, 2009

The writer, a retired major general in the United States Marine Corps, is president of the U.S. Naval Institute.

The Most Powerful Organization In The United States
World Changer
10-18-9
http://www.rense.com/general88/power.htm


Though it may be the most powerful organization in the United States, few people know it even exists. But it has crept into our private lives. Even mortgage papers contain FEMA's name in small print if the property in question is near a flood plain. FEMA was deeply involved in the Los Angeles riots [1992] and the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of the black helicopter traffic reported throughout the United States, but mainly in the West, California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Colorado, are flown by FEMA personnel. FEMA has been given responsibility for many new disasters including urban forest fires, home heating emergencies, refugee situations, urban riots, and emergency planning for nuclear and toxic incidents. In the West, it works in conjunction with the Sixth Army.

FEMA was created in a series of Executive Orders. A Presidential Executive Order, whether Constitutional or not, becomes law simply by its publication in the Federal Registry. Congress is by-passed. Executive Order Number 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense planning and funding. An "emergency czar" was appointed. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies, the bulk of their funding has been used for the construction of secret underground facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic. Executive Order Number 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and grant the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control

Marines of Conscience or Homosexual Marines

Anthony F. Milavic

Major, United States Marines Corps (Retired)

A popular political argument for permitting homosexuals to serve openly in the Marine Corps is that otherwise qualified Marines are being lost to the Corps solely due to their sexuality. That argument is unabashedly simplistic in failing to include the impact of homosexual Marines serving openly on Marines of conscience. In the first instance, the very nature of being Marines of conscience will prompt many of them to extricate themselves from such associations. A notable example of that imperative is the following Marine: On 2 February 1983, Captain Charles B. "Chuck" Johnson, USMC, of Neenah, Wisconsin jumped on an Israeli tank that tried to run through a Marine roadblock in Lebanon and threatened to shoot the tank commander if he continued: The tank withdrew. Later, that Marine officer of conscience resigned his commission rather than compromise his moral convictions and serve with practitioners of homosexual acts tacitly protected by, "Don't ask. Don't tell." If the United States Congress reverses itself and permits homosexuals Marines to serve openly, they will force from service and replace still more Marines of conscience.

During the Constitutional Convention, from May to September 1787, delegates from the colonies were to gather together for the express purpose of amending the Articles of Confederation to form a more perfect union (NOT a completely different union!). The men that met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, were under direct and limited orders from their states to attend the Federal Convention explicitly to preserve the federation and State rights and to correct the errors of the existing federal government for the limited purposes of handling foreign affairs, commerce among the states and common defense.

Yet, during that private and secret convention, there were men who proposed that a national system be established in place of their current federal system, destroying State sovereignty in direct contradiction to their orders.
