Is America still a country worth dying for?

The sorry news - we have let slip thru our fingers so much that we hold dear in this country. Values, principles, traditions are being smothered in a cloak that is clearly of The People Of The Lie.

If only good can triumph over evil then the question begs to be answered - where did all the good men go? If we refuse to worry that question and resolve to correct it, then another surfaces - is America still a country worth dying for?

Some thought provoking/harsh realities - excerpts from read worthy articles -

Western Rifle Shooters - The Heroes Of Lost Causes

As for that sinking feeling of betrayal that you feel. I feel it too. You are not alone.

It is not our country that has betrayed us. Our country is a philosophy. Our country is an idea. Let us not mix the actions of our government with the actions of our philosophy. And to that same government, remember this:

We are not the "peaceful" generation; we won't just watch. We are not the "greatest" generation; we don't need a cause. We are a different kind of generation. We are the Heroes of Lost Fucking Causes.

Imagine what we could do if we had a truly just cause, perhaps restoring liberty to our own homes.

Straight Line Logic - Robert Gore - In Memoriam

Millions have marched off to war believing they were defending the US, which implies the US was under attack. Yet, setting aside for a moment Pearl Harbor and 9/11, US territory hasn't been invaded by a foreign power since the Mexican-American War (arguably--Mexico claimed the territory it "invaded" was part of Mexico), or, if the Confederacy is considered a foreign power, the Civil War. That war ended a century-and-a-half ago, yet every US military involvement since has been justified as a defense of the US. That has gradually attenuated, in a little noted slide, to a defense of US "interests," which is something far different.

There are undoubtedly many epitaphs on tombstones in this country to the effect: Here lies the deceased, who died defending America, and not one that reads: Here lies the deceased, who died defending American interests. However, the latter is in most cases more accurate than the former.

Deth Guild - Dear Government: Consent Revoked

... let's not forget how we ended up with smoldering cities...

From corrupt judges rubber stamping abuse, to abusive District Attorney's cherry picking lives to destroy, to the police shooting, beating, looting and generally doing anything they damn well please, (with near-zero accountability), the "reasonable authority figures" have destroyed people's faith in the system. This escalating breakdown of the civil society is the inevitable result of a population giving up on a city - and to a greater extent, a nation. And why shouldn't they? America has proven itself irredeemably corrupt from the highest federal office to the lowliest animal control officer. Anyone can peruse the daily news and witness all manner of public institutions weaponized to harm the population and ransacked to enrich the gentry. There is no justice to be found here, only oppression and decimation of any unlucky enough to come to Mordor's attention.

When a people witnesses every level of government, from national to state to the local municipalities engaged in shameless lies, graft, corruption and abuse of power, it scuttles their mandate to dispense order. It's also leading by example - every strata of our failing political system is mired in deceit and fraud - why would the citizenry not follow such sterling examples?

We know where evil resides in this country. Or do we? Have we taken a good long look in the mirror lately? For all the disdain we may have for this narcissistic POS, by our inaction are we complicit and should our own images, spitting on the graves of soldiers gone before us, be placed alongside his?

Memorial Day - "I'm one of the chosen ones, I made it to Arlington."

"Arlington" is sung from the viewpoint of a soldier, killed in battle and buried at Arlington National Cemetery. It was inspired by United States Marine Corps Corporal Patrick Nixon, who died in battle in 2003."

The Freedom Rock in Menlo, Iowa - 1999-2015 - Ray "Bubba" Sorenson II

1999-2015 - "The Freedom Rock is a large (approx. 60+ ton) boulder located in rural Iowa that is repainted every year with a different Thank You for our nations Veterans to honor their service to our country. The artist, Ray "Bubba" Sorensen II, was inspired by the movie Saving Private Ryan, as well as, wanting to give Veterans a unique recognition on Memorial Day."

Sorensen started painting the original Freedom Rock the first week of May and plans to be finished by Memorial Day 2015. This year's front (highway facing side) of the Freedom Rock is Sorensen's expanded version of the Gadsden Flag. It has a soldier shouldering the weight of our country including Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness, symbolizing the heavy responsibility each military person carries and defends during their service. Also on the front is a coiled rattlesnake with a ribbon flowing around his body reading, "Don't Tread On Me."

The south side features "The Four Chaplains" who were a calming presence after their troop transport ship, the USS Dorchester, was hit by a torpedo in the early morning hours of Feb. 3, 1943, and began to sink. After organizing an orderly evacuation the life vest supply ran out before everyone had. Selflessly, each chaplain removed their own life vests and gave them to others. The chaplains then locked arms, said prayers and sang hymns as the ship sank.

The back (east side) is the American flag laying on the rock, in the shape of that side of the rock.

On the north side is of course, the Huey helicopter that is painted with green paint containing the ashes (cremains) of fallen Vietnam veterans. Above that will be the famous Vietnam sniper Carlos Hathcock, also known as White Feather. He was famous for killing an enemy NVA sniper by shooting him through the enemy sniper's scope at a long distance. More here.

As of this posting, the 2015 pictures are not yet up on Bubbas Facebook page but should be soon.

I would encourage you to visit his website. Maybe say hello. His work is not real easily found in one place so take a leisurely look here.

"Happy Kill List Tuesday" Hussein Obama!

Yes, the "Commander In Chief" killed a gnat! A rather irritating one by all accounts and it wasn't even a Tuesday! Obama Orders Syria Raid, ISIS Commander Abu Sayyaf Killed by U.S. Special Operations Forces

Hooray for our very own HO!

In the meantime, the woman seized in the raid is a bit of a - shall we say - problem - "...her capture raises a host of thorny policy questions for the Obama administration, which has taken few terrorist detainees and prosecuted those it has taken in US federal courts. Under Obama, US forces had not previously made any battlefield detentions outside Afghanistan, and the US military has closed its detention facilities there and in Iraq.

And unfortunately for this world, the so-called Commander-In-Chief shot all his stuff on one day and celebrated way past his deadline for "Happy kill list Tuesday." Setting up his own brand-new twitter account on KLTuesday was far more a priority.


The opportunity to take out more than one ISIS piece o'c*** just sallied right by him.

The Jester - @ POTUS I see ur busy but ICYMI those pesky ISIS boys have just taken Ramadi. Strategic location where US lost 94+ and 300+ wounded in 04/6.

Washakie County Sheriff Steve Rakness - one cold SOB!

So. ANOTHER "training exercise" on an elementary school campus where it seems that everyone but the kids, and some parents, knew about it. How awesome is that! How great the communication! NOT!

Just a couple of excerpts and then the link so you can read the whole thing yourself.

A creepy looking man with a backpack and hooded sweatshirt pulled over head leered at children on the playground at East Side Elementary...

Heyer was apparently aware that a random training drill was expected last week and told students "Run! Run!" .....

But students like Aubrey Truman thought Heyer said "He's got a gun! He's got a gun!"

Truman told the news site she thought she was going to die, and couldn't stop shaking, despite local law enforcement who arrived on scene to tell students the scary ordeal was a training exercise.

Washakie County Sheriff Steve Rakness led the training, which he deemed a success in an interview with the Northern Wyoming Daily News. "We identified some things we need to work on, but otherwise no problems whatsoever," he said.

Just how cold is that? The adults knew - the kids did NOT know - but hey - Rakness et al didn't have any problems!

And, from the comments section a thought that reflects mine exactly -

Bruce Paluzzi - Top Commenter
I really, really, have a hard time believing how stupid the people of America have become. Really...a surprise drill in which kids get to imagine they might be getting killed and not getting to go home to see mom and dad? You people are sick f---ks and while I am sorry to curse, there is no more appropriate time than this to do it.

'He's got a gun!' Surprise school intruder drill traumatizes elementary students

BLOGGERS please wake the hell up! "Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires!" - or refugee resettlement!

IF we persist, thru our writings or on radio programs etc., on criticizing and focusing on this administration bringing in "immigrants" and/or "refugee's" from around the world because they will vote Democrat - we are nothing more than tools of those who have a much more nefarious intent when it comes to changing America.

They want us focused on the vote rather than what is going on right under our noses - refugee resettlement from the middle east - in massive numbers!

We all know by now that elections are a joke. It does not matter how many promising looking conservatives are voted into office - the majority are "turned" in a very short time.

Please, please stop focusing on 2016, and Jeb Bush, and Ted Cruz, and all the rest of those guaranteed to be swayed sooner rather than later by power and money and look at what is really going on behind that God damned curtain!

In his post Danny Jeffrey of Fix Bayonets links twenty-two articles on "immigrants" being forced down the throats of countries around the globe that are in need of "change."

ELEVEN of those articles have to do with America! I am listing them without linking them - please go to the Fix Bayonets post and read the whole thing. Then please look at the additional links I add after his.

If one 19 year old can make a school back down with regard to flying the America flag, we bloggers can wake a whole lot of America to what is really going on in this country but - the buck stops here!

Indispensable America - Iran Signing Bonus - Rita Hayworth

As you read Victor Davis Hanson's article about WWII, make note, not only of the treasure in lives spent, but also of the American dollars spent in that war. What and how much those dollars produced in just two areas alone.

Then look at the $50 BILLION dollar "signing bonus" Hussein Obama intends to hand over to Iran for signing a piece of paper and that is about all, and you have to ask yourself - Is America insane?

Is this really a good way to be spending the American dollar? Maybe poll some of the over 93 MILLION Americans not in the labor force today - ask what they think. Better yet, back to the first question - Iran, a country that supports terrorism, being enabled by America to build or buy massive numbers of planes/ships/whatever - are we insane?

Why America Was Indispensable to the Allies' Winning World War II - excerpts -

Once the United States entered the war after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Axis cause was largely doomed. America mobilized 12 million soldiers -- about the same number as did the Soviet Union, despite having a population of about 40 million fewer citizens.

American war production proved astonishing. At the huge Willow Run plant in Michigan, the greatest generation turned out a B-24 heavy bomber every hour. A single shipyard could mass-produce an ocean-going Liberty merchant ship from scratch in a week.

In just four years, the United States would produce more airplanes than all of the major war powers combined. Germany, Japan, Italy, and the Soviet Union could not build a successful four-engine heavy bomber. America, in contrast, produced 34,000 excellent B-17s, B-24s, and B-29s.

By 1944, the new U.S. Navy had become the largest in the history of civilization at more than 6,000 ships. Its B-29 heavy bomber program and Manhattan Project efforts together cost more $50 billion in today's dollars. More here.

And on the lighter side of that era -

Is there any wonder why blood runs in the streets of America?

If the vital content of Michelle Obama's speech at Tuskegee University is MO1.jpg "THEY" are out to get you! - it is no wonder, even expected, by her own MO2.jpg calculations, that feelings of being "invisible" and "frustrated" for whatever slight, will manifest violence!

According to Michelle, this has and will continue to play out MO3.jpg "in communities like Baltimore and Ferguson and so many others across this country."

She is completely clear on who the culprits of the "deep rooted problem" are: MO4.jpg Clerks and party goers, cops and employers and the average person on the street.

Sowing discord much Michelle? MO5.jpg

PS to Mooch - I'll admit, your acting was darn good. Especially the slight tick of a poor little me/us sigh at the 0:04 mark. Gwyneth help you to get that just right?

Hussein Obama's "project" of turning America into "real" projects.

5/5/15 - Quotes from an article in the Weekly Standard - Obama: My 'Project' Continues After My Presidency

In remarks last night to Democratic donors in New York City, President Obama talked about the "project" he started continuing after he leaves the White House.

"Now, I intend to get as much done in the next 22 months as possible. As you've noticed, I've been pretty busy and I will continue to be. And I'm hopeful that we may find some opportunities for collaboration with the Republican Congress -- for example, on trade. Hopefully, on infrastructure.

There may be some things where there's some convergence. But if we're going to deliver on the promise that's there for all of us, then we're still going to need to realign our budgets to our values, and we're going to have to fight for priorities like immigration reform,"

Because this is not a project that stops after a certain term in office, and it's not a project that stops after an election. This is something that we have to sustain over the long term."

"And the values and ideals that I believe in are ones that I've never expected to realize just in one term or in one presidency."

Note to Hussein Obama - your frickin "promise" to fundamentally change America is one that I for one want NO part of!

And infrastructure? Doing it "his" way - America will be turned into one great, big, giant, public housing project.

It is a mind blower that he believes that the "values and ideals" HE believes in are what the people want.

HIS "values." HIS "ideals."

Battle of Ortona, Italy - "building-by-building and street-by-street"

Remembering VE Day May 7, 1945 - 70 years later .... and an infamous battle in December of 1943 -

From the Loyal Edmonton Regiment Military Museum

Chiesa di San Tomasso, Ortona, Italy, by Dr. Charles Fraser Comfort.

The battle for Ortona, 20-28 December 1943, was fought at the cost of more than 2,300 Canadian casualties. Many of the soldiers that survived were plagued by battle exhaustion and, well after the fact, by memories of those two and a half terrible weeks. As General Vokes commented, the fighting before Ortona was child's play in comparison.

In late 1943, the Allied campaign to recapture Europe began in earnest with the invasion of Italy, Germany's ally. Canadians would distinguish themselves time and time again during this campaign. Sicily fell first as Canadian and Allied troops followed up an amphibious landing by quickly sweeping the enemy from the island. Using Sicily as a base, the Allies then invaded the Italian mainland. The poorly equipped and demoralized Italian troops were soon overwhelmed by the fierce Allied assault, and Italy quickly withdrew from the war. Canadian soldiers would now face some of Hitler's most battle-hardened, elite combat units. From the invasion of Sicily, to the battles in the interior of the Italian mainland, to the taking of Rome itself, Canadian soldiers faced a wide array of conditions and brutal fighting.

All too often in historical works and Hollywood films, this critical phase of the war has been overshadowed by the D-Day invasion of France. Yet the invasion of Italy was an important key to the final Allied victory. The following screen details the Battle of Ortona, which took place in the days around Christmas in 1943. Unlike most battles of the war, Ortona was fought in the city itself, building-by-building and street-by-street, making it a bloody and costly victory.
The Battle of Ortona

Battle of Ortona painting -
"In 1945 aspiring young artist Gerald Trottier, barely twenty years old, was commissioned to produce a mural of the December 1943 Battle of Ortona. It depicts a group of infantrymen assault down an Ortona street under the covering fire of a tank."

When you're trying to scare the bejeezee out of the sheeple - Jade Helm 15 - Part 2

Jade Helm 15 - "Unconventional Warfare Special Operations training." Big deal or no?

Let's focus on those who would argue that it just "might" be a very big deal, and why.

Texas - where one of the "exercises" will be held in a small town of 7,000. The people are concerned! This is a link to twenty-three very short clips from a recent town hall meeting - Jade Helm 15 Central Texas

Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria of Army Special Operations addresses questions about the Jade Helm 15 Unconventional Warfare Special Operations training from the concerned people of Bastrop, Texas at the Bastrop County Courthouse on 4/27/2015. The courtroom was overflowing, and an auditorium downstairs was also filled. It took me an hour to get into the courtroom to start footage. The court would not allow feedback, only questions specifically pertaining to Jade Helm 15.

TomFernandez28 blog - Texas Congressman Warns U.S. Military Not to Practice Fighting States

Louie Gohmert: "Over the past few weeks, my office has been inundated with calls referring to the Jade Helm 15 military exercise scheduled to take place between July 15 and September 15, 2015," Gohmert said in a Tuesday statement. "This military practice has some concerned that the U.S. Army is preparing for modern-day martial law. Certainly, I can understand these concerns."

"When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even 'cling to guns or religion,' patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned," Gohmert wrote.

The congressman took particular issue with the layout and labels of the Pentagon map for the exercise. "Once I observed the map depicting 'hostile,' 'permissive,' and 'uncertain' states and locations, I was rather appalled that the hostile areas amazingly have a Republican majority, 'cling to their guns and religion,' and believe in the sanctity of the United States Constitution." Gohmert called on the Pentagon to change the map, the names on the map, and said "the tone of the exercise needs to be completely revamped so the federal government is not intentionally practicing war against its own states." More here.

H/T Bunkerville From Zero Hedge - When The Elites Wage War On America, This Is How They Will Do It

The consequences and patterns of war, whether by one nation against another or by a government against the citizenry, rarely change. However, the methods of war have evolved vastly in modern times. Wars by elites against populations are often so subtle that many people might not even recognize that they are under attack until it is too late. Whenever I examine the conceptions of "potential war" between individuals and oligarchy, invariably some hard-headed person cries out: "What do you mean 'when?' We are at war right now!" In this case, I am not talking about the subtle brand of war. I am not talking about the information war, the propaganda war, the economic war, the psychological war or the biological war. I am talking about outright warfare, and anyone who thinks we have already reached that point has no clue what real war looks like.

The recent exposure of the nationwide Jade Helm 15 exercise has made many people suspicious, and with good reason. Federal crisis exercises have a strange historical tendency to suddenly coincide with very real crisis events. We may know very little about Jade Helm beyond government admissions, claims and misdirections. But at the very least, we know what "JADE" is an acronym for: Joint Assistance for Deployment and Execution, a program designed to create action and deployment plans using computer models meant to speed up reaction times for military planners during a "crisis scenario." It is linked with another program called ACOA (Adaptive Course of Action), the basis of which is essentially the use of past mission successes and computer models to plan future missions. Both are products of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

As far as I know, no one has presented any hard evidence as to what "HELM" really stands for, but the JADE portion of the exercise explicitly focuses on rapid force deployment planning in crisis situations, according to the government white paper linked above. This fact alone brings into question statements by the Department of Defense that Jade Helm is nothing more than a training program to prepare military units for "foreign deployment." notes domestic threats), rather than foreign operations. This is clearly a lie if Jade Helm revolves around crisis events (which denotes domestic threats), rather than foreign operations. Much more here.

Trust but verify? So many of us no longer trust our government and there is little wonder why. I have taken out mostly anything in the article below written by John Whitehead, except for the questions he asks.

Turning America into a Battlefield: A Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

A standing army--something that propelled the early colonists into revolution--strips the American people of any vestige of freedom.

How can there be any semblance of freedom when there are tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead?

The military plans to use southwestern states as staging grounds for guerilla warfare drills in which highly-trained military troops equipped with all manner of weapons turn American towns and cities in quasi-battlefields. Why?

After all, haven't we been urged time and time again to just "trust" the government to respect our rights and abide by the rule of law only to find that, in fact, our rights were being plundered and the Constitution disregarded at every turn?

At what point will all of the government's carefully drawn plans for dealing with civil unrest, "homegrown" terrorism and targeting pre-crime become a unified blueprint for locking down the nation?

What's the rationale behind turning government agencies into military outposts?

What's with all of the government agencies stockpiling hollow point bullets? For example, why does the Department of Agriculture need .40 caliber semiautomatic submachine guns and 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? For that matter, why do its agents need ballistic vests and body armor?

Why does the Postal Service need "assorted small arms ammunition"?

Why did the DHS purchase "1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition, along with 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO 'personal defense weapons' plus a huge stash of 30-round high-capacity magazines"?

That's in addition to the FBI's request for 100 million hollow-point rounds. The Department of Education, IRS, the Social Security Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which oversees the National Weather Service, are also among the federal agencies which have taken to purchasing ammunition and weaponry in bulk.

Why is the federal government distributing obscene amounts of military equipment, weapons and ammunition to police departments around the country?

And why is DHS acquiring more than 2,500 Mine-Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles, only to pass them around to local police departments across the country?

Why is the military partnering with local police to conduct training drills around the country? And what exactly are they training for?

What is being done to protect the American populace from the threat of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, being used against them?

Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies?

And why does the TSA need $21,000 worth of potassium chlorate, a chemical compound often used in explosives?

Why is the Pentagon continuing to purchase mass amounts of ammunition while at the same time preparing to destroy more than $1 billion worth of bullets and missiles that are still viable?

Moreover, what is really being done to hold the Pentagon accountable for its doctored ledgers, fraud, waste and mismanagement, which has cost the taxpayer trillions of dollars?

Given the similarities between the government's Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers and bystanders into thinking it's a real crisis, how much of what is being passed off as real is, in fact, being staged by DHS for the "benefit" of training law enforcement, leaving us none the wiser?

Given that Americans are 110 times more likely to die of foodborne illness than in a terrorist attack, why is the government spending trillions of dollars on "national security"?

How exactly is the $75 billion given to various intelligence agencies annually to keep us "safe" being spent?

And why is the DHS giving away millions of dollars' worth of federal security grants to states that federal intelligence agencies ruled have "no specific foreign or domestic terrorism threat"?
Why is the government amassing names and information on Americans considered to be threats to the nation, and what criteria is the government using for this database?

Taken individually, these questions are alarming enough. But put them together and they add up to the kind of trouble that the American founding fathers not only warned against but from which they fought to free themselves.

Indeed, when viewed collectively, they leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn't be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called "government of the people, by the people, for the people" is no longer answerable to "we the people."

When you're trying to scare the bejeezee out of the sheeple - ISIS - Part 1

It's a lot about the image isn't it?

Take as an example the psychology of color as it relates to fear or persuasion. I've tried to figure out with little success, what marketing research resulted in the orange jump suits ISIS clothes their victims in other than that the color orange is the least favorite color of men and women. Well, oh. It's what we got. Orange.

But the sting doesn't hurt nearly as much when there are counter jihads (if you will) by masters of disseminating hilarity such as Stilton Jarlsberg and others. I find, often, that "hilarity" is tinged with its own warnings such as - We see you, we know what you are doing. Save it for your goats, or better yet - your Shaytan handlers!

JapaneseAndIsis.jpg Japan's internet users have shown they won't be silenced by Islamic State's threats. They're taking to web with...

Stilton Jarlsberg - Happy Martyr's Day


ISIS quickly claimed "credit" for their warriors' hilariously quick transformation into Lone Star roadkill, and promised that further such attacks on American soil would be occurring just as soon as they could find new stooges and a target anywhere except Texas.

How many times do we here in the Empire preach about sight picture and fire discipline people! Really!!! Sigh....Oh well, if you goat molesters ain't got it by now - You ain't ever going to get it.

We here at the Empire being g_dly sorts and all, have made sure your now very dead pals in TX - are getting their 72 virgins. We cloned Helen Thomas and Rosanne Barr. 36 times each. Hey never let it be said we're not benevolent here....have fun with that. Send more Jihadis, we'll make sure they get their "rewards in paradise". No really, trust us.

Or the sting of an old buddy from eight years ago -

Yeah. Save it scum. Return to sender/"white" house.

You have been warned - "we consider those kids our kids"

How many warnings do we need?

Hussein Obama's monologue yesterday on the situation in Baltimore said a whole lot that ticked a "whole lot" of people off - but I honed in on this particular sentence - "We're paying attention all the time because we consider those kids our kids and think they're important."

HillBill clued us in on this thinking a couple of years ago with her It Takes A Village crap. Melissa Harris-Perry foerwarned us again when she famously let the cat out of the bag a few years ago - "So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities."

Hearing Hussein Obama say the same thing should scare the bejeezus out of every person on the planet and not just those here on American soil. The thought of women becoming nothing more than baby factories for Obama kids is enough to make one very, very sick.

"What will the social order of the future be like? Comrade, I will tell you. There will be a class of overlords, after them the rank and file of the party members in hierarchical order, and then the great mass of anonymous followers, servants and workers in perpetuity, and beneath them again all the conquered foreign races, the modern slaves. And over and above all these will reign a new and exalted nobility of whom I cannot speak... but of all these plans the militant members will know nothing. The new man is living amongst us now! He is here. Isn't that enough for you? I will tell you a secret. I have seen the new man. He is intrepid and cruel. I was afraid of him." -- Adolf Hitler; Herman Rauschning, Hitler Speaks 1939
