  • Vietnam War: The pastor who survived 17 years in forgotten jungle army

    Pastor Y Hin Nie, 75, preaches the gospel from the comfort of his church in the US state of North Carolina. But as a young man he survived nearly two decades in the jungle, giving sermons to his comrades fighting Vietnamese troops long after the war had ended - his AK-47 never far from his side. On the run and cut off from the world, Hin Nie and his unit of insurgents foraged for food and hunted for tiger skins to pay the Khmer Rouge. His "forgotten army" did not give up arms until 1992, after Hin Nie negotiated their...
  • How Democrats’ Attacks On The 2020 Election’s Legitimacy Set The Stage For Revolution

    The Federalist ^ | September 9, 2020 | J.B. Shurk
    Nothing will more effectively halt DemocratsÂ’ efforts at pushing our country into full-scale civil conflict than shining a bright light on their objectives for all to see. Democrats have been masters at messaging for decades. They focus on a single idea, they and their corrupt allies in the media magnify and propagate the idea, and then they all repeat it endlessly until it is accepted as fact. The idea Democrats are pushing today is that before voting has even begun, the 2020 presidential election is illegitimate.Why are Democrats working to undermine the election, rather than working to win it?

    On Saturday night, about 100 leftist protesters dressed in antifa’s signature black bloc set fire to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters in Portland, Ore., with people inside the building.At around 9 p.m. West Coast time, Grace Morgan reported that roughly 100 people had showed up at ICE building to protest. Activists tagged the building with graffiti reading “F**K ICE” and “This is indigenous land.” They also set a fire, fired a flare above the roof and threw eggs at the door.Parts of the fence around the ICE facility in Portland OR have been dismantled by protesters & laid...

    The New York Times ^ | 15 March 2021 | Declan Walsh and Eric Schmitt
    With a small military training program, the United States military has joined efforts to fight a brutal insurgency that has devastated northern Mozambique. American Special Forces soldiers began training Mozambican troops this week as part of an effort to repel a spreading insurgency in northeastern Mozambique that American officials say is linked to the Islamic State. The insurgency, near some of the world’s biggest gas reserves, has killed at least 2,000 civilians and displaced another 670,000. The American program is modest in size and scope: a dozen Army Green Berets are to train Mozambican marines for the next two months....

    A 26-year-old Madison man has agreed to plead guilty to the attempted arson of the City-County Building during destructive protests on June 23 that led to the toppling of two statues Downtown, court documents show. Under a plea agreement filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Madison, Marquon M. Clark would face between six and nine years in federal prison, to run at the same time as a state prison sentence Clark is serving, and pay restitution of $105,171. He is accused of throwing a flaming roll of paper towels into a window of the City-County Building, starting a small...

  • One Way the Kurdish Insurgency Could Lead to the Collapse of Turkey

    The National Interest ^ | September 9, 2020 | Michael Rubin
    Once other countries even covertly begin supporting the Kurdish insurgency in Turkey, there will be no turning back. Modern Turkey arose nearly one hundred years ago against the backdrop of European efforts to divide the Anatolian Peninsula. This fact drives both Turkey’s collective paranoia and its xenophobia. Its nightmare is a Kurdish secession. While the PKK and its offshoot groups long ago abandoned this goal in favor of localized autonomy, Turkish president Recep Erdoğan’s penchant for instigating fights with neighbors and regional states may soon make Turkey’s fears a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Turkey’s problem with its Kurdish problem has existed almost...

    Jonathan Karl of ABC News asked an interesting question of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany at last Tuesday’s press briefing: “Where in the Constitution does the president derive the authority to send federal law enforcement officers to the streets of American cities against the will of the elected officials in those cities?” McEnany, as it turned out, was prepared. Section 1315 of Title 40 of the U.S. Code, she explained, “gives DHS the ability to deputize officers in any department or agency like ICE, Custom and Border Patrol and Secret Service … for the duties in connection with the...

    American ^ | July 18, 2020 | Wiliam L. Gensert
    Through Antifa and BLM, the Democrats are preparing for war. The riots, looting, arson, and public beatings taking place every day are merely practice for the coming revolutionary conflagration. They are war-gaming to see how best to seize control of the streets and intimidate citizens into ceding their right to vote for the candidate they support. From the beginning, they forced the police to stand down. The constant drumbeat for defunding the police has sent a message to LEOs everywhere: "Don't interfere" when the insurrection goes hot. Knowing that the police can be constrained into allowing anarchy to reign, they...

    Wheeler, a Democrat, said acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf reached out to his office to offer assistance in quelling the demonstrations. Wheeler responded that his “biggest immediate concern is the violence federal officers brought to our streets in recent days, and the life-threatening tactics [Department of Homeland Security] agents use.” "We do not need or want their help," he added.

    If you think the toppling of statues, vicious attacks on innocent Americans, and destruction of cities across the U.S. is temporary, think again. Whether it’s Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or whoever, these anarchists have an agenda. The Washington Times reported June 3, 2020 that law enforcement discovered Antifa planned an anti-government insurgency long before George Floyd was killed. Though the media portrays them as mere protesters, experts say the group is fighting for a communist revolution.Recently, Fox News’ Martha MacCallum asked Greater New York Black Lives Matter leader Hawk Newsome “What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through...

    NSURGENCY 1-1.This is an organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted government through use of subversion and armed conflict (JP 1-02). The key distinction between an insurgency and other movements is the decision to use violence to achieve political goals. An insurgency is typically an internal struggle within a state, not between states. It is normally a protracted political and military struggle designed to weaken the existing government’s power, control, and legitimacy, while increasing the insurgency’s power, control, and legitimacy. 1-2.The majority of insurgencies have been limited to local regions or specific countries. However, today’s instant communications allow insurgent...

    In my tiny West Virginia town, I phoned a local farmer to order fresh eggs. The yolks of his eggs are a rich deep yellow. After his wife took my egg order, she asked if she could speak to me about the chaos over the death of George Floyd. I assume word has spread around town about my political activism. She expressed deep concern for her half-black grandkids living in Maryland who are experiencing racial bullying. She wanted to know what to tell them about all the racial hate and white supremacy stuff they are hearing from media. I told...

    MANILA — Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called off a week-long ceasefire after communist guerrillas killed a government militiaman and failed to declare their own truce by a Saturday deadline he had imposed. It was the first irritant in what has been a blossoming relationship between Duterte, who calls himself a left-wing president, and the Maoist guerrillas, who have been waging one of Asia’s longest-running communist insurgencies. Both sides had agreed to resume peace talks next month in Norway, and it was not immediately clear whether the talks would be affected. After withdrawing his ceasefire order, Duterte issued a statement on...

    Hillary Clinton will not be elected president of the United States. Why? Because she can't win, that's why. And the sooner you figure this out, the calmer you will be. She wants desperately to win. She's endured painful decades of Bill, years of Barack, eating all the insults like so many sins and swallowing them down as the price of her ambition. It's all there in the dull weight of her eyes. But I just don't see Hillary winning this election, because she's the lone candidate of the establishment in a year of insurgency. Common wisdom and her fierce Clinton...
