  • Unprecedented Demonstration in Jerusalem of Christian Schools

    ‘They are doing the same to Jewish schools. This isn’t mentioned because it interferes with their persecution complex and desire for leftist help.
    So an attempt to economically squeeze Jewish schools too in order to be taken over by the state justifies the same attempt against Christian schools? Christians should just keep quiet and let the state close down their schools? ‘

    This is fascinating. Is what is going on here a salami slice campaign by the Israeli version of DOE to strangle denominational schools and force students to get their education from a very secular-liberal state system? The only exceptions are the Orthodox Jews because they band together and wield enough electoral clout that the secularists have to play nice with them to make them potential or actual partners in some coalition government or another.

    I know I have read that the Israeli educrats detest ‘settlers and their settlements’ because most ‘settlements’ have their own self governing schools.

    Interesting case. This was a Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO) officer not the NOPD. The picture with the story shows other police walking an area looking for dropped evidence items that appears to be one of the new mixed population housing developments built where the old massive New Deal style developments were. These are definitely mostly black tenanted but are heavily senior citizens and very middle class. Pushing ahead with flattening most of the big public housing complexes was the one positive thing Ray Nagin did.

    ‘I’m sure you’ve tried to give people the evidence that Obama’s “birth certificate” is a crude forgery, and been met with nothing but rage.’

    No, people that I have mentioned the topic to just feel it is a kind of foil hat kooky thing. Sort of ‘who cares, what's the difference’ attitude. Now lets see what happens if Ted Cruz gets in striking distance of the GOP nomination. McCain, who was born at the US Navy Base at Coco Solo, Canal Zone had to spend a good bit of money opposing a court challenge mounted by a high power Dem lawyer that tried to argue he was ineligible to be President due to the location of his birth. This is in spite of the facts of the location was a US possession and both parents were natural born US citizens.

    ‘Polygamy is already tolerated in the U.S. It will be completely legal in just several years. This is one purpose of flooding the country with hundreds of thousands of polygamists.’

    Yes, you get it. It is almost impossible to get Americans to understand this long term Muslim scheme. They know they will never be the majority here but the goal is to get above 5% of the population so they can really leverage their power.
    The SC is poised to make queer marriage a Constitutional right. at that point the Free Exercise clause of the 1st Amendment will be used to get the ant-polygamy laws voided. The Mormon schismatics will be the staking horse paid for by the muzzies. Then every Muslim man will be able to get his four wives into the US and that opens the gates to all their family members. Also with white working class men being marginalized in an economy that is in many was deindustrializing outreach by the muzzies to these marginalized and bitter men will gain some converts and they can be offered the ‘4 wives deal’ as well. It is amazing but not only to Americans not understand this maneuver but they just get angrily confused if you try and lead them through its steps.

    ‘to my understanding the whole 40 acres and a mule thing was a promise and being made by certain carpetbagger politicians to get elected.obviously, no one ever passed any such law and nobody owes anybody 40 acres or a mule.’

    There were several authors. Interestingly one was William T Herman who wanted blacks settled on abandoned lands and given a government mule and some food and seed so they could raise their own food and not be permanent recipients of army rations handed out by the Freedman’s Bureau. Curiously by the late 1890’s the United Confederate Veterans passed motions supporting the 40 acres scheme. The idea was the US government would pay for the land and livestock and that would pump cash into the perennial cash starved South as well as settle indigent blacks on small place that were theirs thus reducing the incredible poverty of these people and take some of the pressure of competition off white tenant and share croppers. Life in the post bellum rural south was one of perpetual struggle to try and just tread water and keep from drowning or to use another analogy like being in a room where the oxygen was being steadily pumped out.

    ‘I read that Lincoln was gay or bisexual ‘

    There seems to be an Abe for every taste; Martyr Abe, Saviour Abe, Tyrant Abe, Clever Operator Abe, Racist Abe, Clinically Depressed Abe, and now Gay Abe. The gay part comes from some rather emotional sounding letters he wrote to guys he knew before marrying Mary Todd. Victorian Americans regularly gushed about their same sex friendships in a way we would find well odd, otherwise when Abe was on the court circuit he regularly shared his bed with other young lawyers. Everyone did. Inns rented sleeping space not rooms so individuals could end up sleeping three to a bed when court was in session. Doesn’t mean some sort of queer sex treesome was underway.

    ‘it’s not only Obama , but the entire cabal of pro-muslim collaborators that he surrounds himself with .’

    The Mahdi is pro-Islime, however, and this is what isn't much picked up on, he and even more the CIA chief Brennan who sold him on Arab Spring, thought they were the Wizards of Smart. They were going to use the template the CIA started perfecting with Solidarity in the 80’s and then the color coded ‘revolutions’ in the 90’s in places such as Georgia to pacify the Arabs. The mechanism was going to be stirring up ‘popular Islam-ism’ to either topple ‘oppressive’ anti-Islamist regimes such as Gaddafi’s or firmly implant a Muslims who were Islamists in places such as Egypt. Soon with a bit of fighting Muslims would be enjoying the blessings of stable popular Islamic regimes and the US fingerprints would be nigh invisible. The Saudis with some reservations went along with this and made up their quarrel with the Muzzie Brothers and provided a lot of petro dollars for the effort. To SA the prospect of toppling the Shia regime in Iraq and getting rid of the heretical Assad regime in Syria seemed to be an excellent idea as it served both orthodox Sunni interests and would cripple Iran's reach into the Middle East.

    Unfortunately, and this is the amazing part that the Beltway types thought they were so smart they could orchestrate this operation, we are dealing with Arabs and the Middle East. Instead of some sort of sophisticated hidden hand Cardinal Richelieu style operation we have the ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ enacted on a grand scale. Official DC is absolutely dumbfounded at the tidal wave of armed chaos it has unleashed. BHO and his crew have no real ideas about what to do about it other than look lame and they are equally at a loss as to what do about pieces of the chessboard from the Baltic to the South China Sea starting to move in disturbing and ominous ways. BHO is a leftist who doesn't much like the USA but he is also a psuedo-intellectual completely out of his depth in a world of profound cultural differences and real politic players such as Putin and the Chinese. He will be gone but really bad things are going to come out of the witch's brew he has cooked up.

    I would sincerely suggest that you write a biography of your father even if it has to be self published and then distribute copies to relatives and to libraries at all Marine Corps posts and stations at least in CONUS. Without such a document your father's memory will vanish in a few decades and he will be another of these melancholy footnotes in some history either of Force Recon or Marine operations. The Army official histories are studded with these small footnotes noting a sergeant or lieutenant was awarded (often posthumously) the DSC for some engagement in Europe or the pacific or Korea. These names are hauntingly ghostly as the identities flit past.

    ‘I can't help but wonder how soon liberal fundamentalists will begin to demand the Washington monument be torn down. ‘
    Actually it will be renamed to incorporate the new understanding that Geo. Washington was an older gay man who had numerous relationships with handsome young aids such as Alexander Hamilton (who was a bi-sexual) and Col. Scammel and possibly Light Horse Harry Lee who also was the lover of Col John Laurens the son of Henry Laurens.

    Also Lincoln was a gay man who had numerous affairs of varying lengths with among others his law partner.

    You think I jest. This stuff is all over the net and the queer brigade are pushing it hard.
    American history is about to get another bit of Orwellian remake to further destroy any common basis of narrative and heroes.

    The flags were originally place on CS veterans graves by the United Daughters of the Confederacy to recognize Confederate Memorial Day which is, I think, the first Sunday in May. The UDC is a private organization of volunteers who were organized over 125 years ago in part to maintain the graves of Confederate soldiers.

    ‘A mushroom cloud over a US city is what it would take to wake the sleeping giant. At LEAST that. Then we’ll have to wonder what percentage of our population would dance in the streets afterwards. My guess? 40% +/-’

    What the US would get then is a real dictatorship by a terrified political class. I was working in DC at the time of 9-11 and the city looked like the capitol of a banana republic for a while with barricaded streets, heavily armed somebodies around most federal buildings and even sub cabinet level factotums racing about with a posse of security vehicles sirens blaring and the regular citizens being run off the road. That ass Bremer tried to have a woman arrested by his security detail for telling him to move his honking black security SUV as it was blocking her in at a garden supply store parking lot.

    Have a nuclear event, kiss what is left of your Constitutional rights goodbye for a long time as the same collection of gas bags and corrupt insiders that run Capitol Hill run a sort of dictatorship in which Islam will still be respectfully called ‘The Religion of Peace’. We are a very different country than in 1941, unfortunately.

  • Inside the Ring: Memo outlines Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens

    Actually Defense Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” has been around for a long while. The document quoted is the current issuance dated Dec. 29, 2010,> The language that has caused an uproar states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”

    “Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.

    “In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” .

    The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”

    Is nothing new. I believe it is pretty much word for word what was in this document a decade ago. It is simply general guidance that provides under certain exigent circumstances military forces upon the best judgment of commanders can be used in a fashion that could technically violate Posse Comitatus doctrine. These are massive outbreaks of violence and disorder in the wake of natural or man made disasters, etc. In the Huntsville tornado back in the 1990’s the garrison of Redstone Arsenal provided both security and relief functions immediately to the community without the commander of MICOM first formally requesting a Posse Comitatus waiver from the CSA.

    This document is far less threatening than the current Exercise Jade Helm which uses a scenario specifically scripted for the armed forces to put down an insurrection in the SW US and Texas.

    “The Hope” and “The Glory”

    Both of these works recommend themselves to the serious student of the Israeli-Arab conflicts. Read closely they contain bits of information which reveals actual remarks and narrative of crucial events which do not make it into the ‘official and correct’ histories. There is a point in “The Hope’ where Moshe Dayan bluntly says of the survival of the Jewish state in the War of Independence ‘We did it ourselves. No one else has any credit for it.’ A true statement and it squares with Dayan's actual attitudes which had to be kept pablumized less it upset US Jews and other westerners.

    Unfortunately there was nothing like the pilot pool needed for that and with both know such glib prognosis are anything but the way mammoth bureaucracies function. Even if the Prez had wanted to go in that direction such an initiative would have been hamstrung and hog tied by the host of other claimants for defense dollars. Just in passing it seems to me that by around 2005/6 the CSAF was on a campaign to cut down the size of the flying officer force to use the ‘savings’ for his various pet rocks. The other part of the equation is that the Arabs that were opposed to the Saddam regime, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Emirates were making it clear that the interminable blockade of Iraq had to come to an end because it was such a potent source of rabble rousing within their own populations. Finally (and this really does reflect badly on Bush2) the DOD went to war with its idea of how it was to go i.e. go crush Saddam and then put someone new on the throne , most likely Chelabi, and then leave only a security force necessary to guard some air bases and control Baghdad. The Iraqi Army was supposed to be rebuilt on the remains of Saddam's force purged of regime true believers. Of course Bush 2 got that one turned around by listening to Wolfowitz and his ‘Democracy Project’, the Saudis exerted pressure through the Kissinger alumni because they wanted to keep a Shia off the throne and the Prez’s wife (who had a great deal of influence over him) spouted her usual social-progressive-Christian babble about democracy and women's rights etc. So we ended up with that ass Bremer and the follies his clique in Washington helped push forward. Bush wasn't as foolish as BHO but the ‘Democracy Project’ helped set the domino's falling that “Arab Spring’ really accelerated into true Arab armed chaos.

The Pearl River is the LA-Miss state line so in later years criminals would dodge back and forth in that area dodging the law from both states. There is a lot of meth cooking done in this area today.

    ‘I'm disappointed so many Republicans and presumably conservatives would make such a stupid choice,’

    Yes, this is a valid issue. The sheer lack of seriousness and non-intellectuality among much of the Conservative base is jarring. Is it worse than in the past? I don't know. I remember trying to get people who were adults during the period 1930-45 to answer straight up questions about how they perceived events they lived through and got amazing inane and sometimes flat stupid responses. This was not ‘it is too unpleasant to remember’ sort of thing. It was “Oh, we just tried to have fun and go dancing a lot.’ or “I never heard of Pearl Harbor before the Japs attacked. Was it in Hawaii?’ I am not joking. Men who were in WW2 generally offered the most direct answers but I was amazed at the lack of perception and just plain stupid responses I got from many people.

    A post this pile of verbal fecal matter as an example to Freepers of the continual malice and vileness of the left. Also a couple of notes. Firstly take note of what this POS Morgan Strong has been up to: Morgan Strong is a former professor of Middle Eastern History, and was an advisor to CBS News' Sixty Minutes on the Middle East.

    Yes indeed 'advising' 60 Minutes on how to spin stories in a way to vilify Isreal with a thin coating of 'academic discourse'.

    Secondly using manipulated 'facts' to vilify Israel:

    '(There have been 3,728 Israeli citizens killed in terrorist attacks from 1948 to 2014. Four Israelis died as a result of terrorist attacks in 2014. There were 24 Israeli’s wounded by terrorist attacks in 2014. Palestinian deaths during the Israeli invasion of Gaza in 2014 alone numbered 2,310 with 10,895 wounded.)'

    The ragheads always take disproportionate casualties in any direct conflict. Partly because they are simply incompetent because of the way their screwed up culture makes it virtually impossible for a group of Arab men to ever do anything in a really organized way since such organization requires some sort of subordination which is anathema to the Arab male mindset. The raghead leaders think they are being very clever to embed their forces in densely populated civilian areas so the 'fighters' can dump their weapons and blend in with the civilian population when real trouble shows up. The 'fighters' could care less about damage and death coming down on raghead civilians, if nothing else it is useful after the fact to whine about how super awful the Jews or infidel Americans or whoever were to the poor peaceful Arabs and to provide garbage such as this hack with 'evidence' of 'Zionist' evil.

    Mr Strong is the face of the enemy and he and his ilk will never be defeated until they are running for their lives.

    But in the final analysis, not only will the Holocaust fade from memory, but so will the Nazis themselves. And while it took well over a hundred years for the French to try and rehabilitate “the antichrist” Napoleon Bonaparte, so too with Hitler eventually be thought of as just another “German leader.”

    In part I agree. However, what makes the Holocaust have multigenerational (or should) impact is the endless historical persistence of Judeophobia. It is unlike any other similar phenomenon in history that I am familiar with. From century to century Jews are singled out as a group for collective guilt and punishment for an ever changing but endless array of ‘crimes’. Today that which seemingly cannot die appears among us again with not just Muslims but a wide range of Europeans from France and Great Britain to Russia once again uttering the old phrases which indict the Jews as a particularly reprehensible people and the nation of the Jews, Israel, as an especially loathsome entity (that sh-tty little country to quote a very upper class French cabinet officer) meriting destruction and the Israeli Jews deserving if not annihilation at least expulsion amid some pretty substantial blood letting.

    In 1923, in the year of the Beer Hall Putsch, Dietrich Eckart a journalist and semi-intellectual who can be called the spiritual godfather of national Socialism published a phampflet in the form of a dialog between Eckart and Hitler titled ‘Bolshevism From Lenin to Moses’. It reflects the core belief of these two and the NS movement that the Jews represented the occult power of revolutionary subversion throughout history and were responsible for deflecting man from his natural path. In other words the Jews are responsible for everything bad from drug trafficking to 9-11. The persistence of the ethnophobia means that as long as it is around Jews will never be safe from collective scapegoating and mass repression. That is what makes the Holocaust relevant as a warning of what can happen and a memory of what once did happen.

    “He should be lucky he wasn’t charged with murder as that is what he apparently did. “
    That's easy for you to say. Being in a combat zone causes people to do things that might seem strange or inexplicable to the rest of us. I am willing to give this soldier the benefit of doubt. And the pansy-ass Army brass should give him his medal back.

    Interesting you should say that. I recall a high school teacher who was an FO with the 92nd Division telling how the South Carolina Army national Guard artillery battalion that he was attached to organized an attack on a German company after the truce went into effect in Italy. These people were heavily cracker and tough as lighter knots, they routinely attacked and occasionally killed black soldiers in the division rear. They were just determined to get back at the Germans for an ambush in which a number of black soldiers were left hanging from the lower limbs of some trees. The Johnny Rebs picked up quite a few black soldiers on their way and both killed a fair number of Germans. Revenge is one of the most common motifs in combat. PC is going to kill us literally not figuratively
