    Seventy- five years ago this month, General George S. Patton was en route to a Sunday afternoon hunting trip in the devastated region of Mannheim, Germany when his Cadillac limousine collided with a military truck parked on the side of the road. The two other passengers in the vehicle were unharmed except General Patton who was left with a massive head wound and paralyzed from the neck down. Patton was swiftly taken to an Army hospital 20 miles away where he made rapid strides in recovery over the course of 12 days. His presiding physician had given him the medical...

  • Foul Play to Silence Patton

    U.S. Army general George S. Patton, renowned for strategic military prowess and leadership, led World War II troops into Casablanca, Sicily, and France; relieved Allied forces at the Battle of the Bulge; and drove deep into Nazi Germany. Patton was equally renowned for his no-holds-barred opinions, colorful attire, profanity-laced speeches, and disregard for orders he thought ineffective, all of which did not sit well with the Allied high command. The new "must see" film, Silence Patton, suggests that the general's premature death in a mysterious auto accident may have been orchestrated to silence this oversized, historic personality. Written and directed...

    George S. Patton, Jr. experienced his first combat against men loyal to Pancho Villa, leading a detachment of soldiers who killed three of the enemy.It was a burial, but certainly not a funeral. One soldier who looked on muttered, “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust…If Villa won’t bury you Uncle Sam must.” The three dead men, whose bodies were unceremoniously laid in hastily dug desert graves, had ridden with the revolutionary Pancho Villa, and one of them, Julio Cardenas, was the commander of his personal bodyguard. The men who killed them were U.S. soldiers and their accompanying interpreters, members of...

    First, I want to pay tribute to Mr Brookins and all other American soldiers for their courage and bravery. We are forever grateful. I offered as a gift to President Trump a photo of a military cemetery in Luxembourg, where General Patton is buried, with the inscription with a word saying: Dear Donald, let us remember our common history. And we should do that even in more difficult times. After World War Two, the generation of our parents and grandparents vowed: Never again. Together, they laid the foundation for our security and prosperity through Atlantic cooperation. The Marshall Plan helped...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/06/2018 | By Richard Jack Rail
    This being D-Day, it's inevitable that thoughts turn to WWII. The slaughter. The sacrifices. The magnificent courage of going forward into the teeth of machine gun fire and artillery barrages onto open beaches. In perhaps its only redeeming virtue, war brings out the heroism inherent in the human breast. You can get into some interesting discussions online, and WWII always comes up. Specifically, the ending of WWII. Patton wanted to take out the Russians while we were already there, and today, a lot of people think he was right. But he wasn't right. At least, not in the sense he...

    ON the morning of Saturday, Feb. 26, a day before the Academy Awards, the actress Carrie Fisher woke up in her Beverly Hills home next to the lifeless body of a gay Republican political operative named R. Gregory Stevens. Thus ended one of the more improbable friendships that Hollywood and Washington have known - and a globe-trotting, adventurous, but ultimately debilitating existence that might be fodder for a Tinseltown thriller, if it only had a satisfying resolution. Before its abrupt end, Mr. Stevens's journey had taken him from the beaches of San Clemente, Calif., and the slopes of Sun Valley,...

    Patton Oswalt apologized for a since deleted retweet about the "long list of targets" that terrorists have when it comes to President-elect Donald Trump's worldwide holdings. "Trump has properties all over the world. Terrorists will have a long list of targets that are literally owned by POTUS and bear his name," a Twitter use wrote. Oswalt responded by retweeting the tweet and adding, "Holy f--k. Come 'n' get it, terrorists!" Oswalt has since deleted the tweet reported by Breitbart, and issued an apology after garnering a lot of heat on social media.

    The Real Revo ^ | 9 Jan 10
    Part One is exactly as advertised. If you are going to be offended by Profanity go read something else. There, I've done my part. Profanity serves a purpose in the military. General Patton explained; "When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an Army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An Army without profanity couldn't fight it's...

    It was the greatest moment of Pattons career and a welcome, day-late Christmas present for the surrounded heroes of Bastogne. The Americans went on to smash the Germans at the Bulge, one of the most significant victories of the war. Desperate for a miracle amid the crisis, the Americans got what they needed from Patton, who stayed completely confident in himself, his troops and his policy of aggression. That confidence enabled him to take the big risks necessary for a miracle. With the economic recovery going in fits and starts, you might want to do a little miracle working of...

    A clear cold Christmas,’ General George S. Patton of the U.S. Army wrote in his diary. ‘Lovely weather for killing Germans, which seems a bit queer, seeing Whose birthday it is.’ The skies had finally cleared with intense frosts moving in from the east, offering an opportunity for Allied fighter bombers — previously hampered by cloud — to break up German attacks as they were assembling. Christmas Day 1944 witnessed some of the most blood-soaked, desperate fighting of the war in what became known as the Battle of the Bulge.

    The current situation in the world can only be described as precarious. ISIS and radical jihadis are wreaking havoc across the globe. Old allies are frustrated with a complete lack of US leadership and old enemies like Russia are on the move. We’ve gone from the days in 1989, where Ronald Reagan was told, “the world is quiet” during his last days in office, to “the world is on fire.” Coupled with this, is the state of the US military, which is reeling from readiness, budget and social issues. Added to the military’s problems is what I call, “the demise...
