 McGinty JJ.jpg
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as Acting Platoon Leader, First Platoon, Company K, Third Battalion, Fourth Marines, Third Marine Division, in the Republic of Vietnam on 18 July 1966. Second Lieutenant (then Staff Sergeant) McGinty's platoon, which was providing rear security to protect the withdrawal of the battalion from a position which had been under attack for three days, came under heavy small arms, automatic weapons and mortar fire from an estimated enemy regiment.

With each successive human wave which assaulted his thirty-two-man platoon during the four- hour battle, Second Lieutenant McGinty rallied his men to beat off the enemy. In one bitter assault, two of the squads became separated from the remainder of the platoon. With complete disregard for his safety, Second Lieutenant McGinty charged through intense automatic weapons and mortar fire to their position. Finding twenty men wounded and the medical corpsmen killed, he quickly reloaded ammunition magazines and weapons for the wounded men and directed their fire upon the enemy.

Although he was painfully wounded as he moved to care for the disabled men, he continued to shout encouragement to his troops and to direct their fire so effectively that the attacking hordes were beaten off. When the enemy tried to out flank his position, he killed five of them at point-blank range with his pistol. When they again seemed on the verge of overrunning the small force, he skillfully adjusted artillery and air strikes within fifty yards of his position.

This destructive fire power routed the enemy, who left an estimated 500 bodies on the battlefield. Second Lieutenant McGinty's personal heroism, indomitable leadership, selfless devotion to duty, and bold fighting spirit inspired his men to resist the repeated attacks by a fanatical enemy, reflected great credit upon himself, and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

A Connecticut Baker is Under Fire for Designing a Pro 2nd Amendment Birthday Cake

Via Knuckledraggin' My Life Away



Jennifer Montalto, owner of Jenny-Lu’s bakery in Middlebury, CT is receiving some backlash for baking a pro 2nd Amendment cake for a local Friends of NRA birthday dinner.

Elizabeth Mais wanted to order her husband Bill an AR-15 crafted cake for his 51st birthday, but she was turned down by a number of local bakers who didn’t approve of her idea.  Determined to find someone to create the highly detailed dessert, Mais came across Montalto who said she had no problem creating the sporting rifle cake with a ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ flag draped on top.  “I don’t think about politics when I’m doing my cakes,” she said Tuesday. “A friend contacted me about it because they couldn’t find anyone to make it… It was a challenge.”

After creating the cake Montalto received some hate online via Facebook and Yelp reviews (which have since been removed).  She was labeled “insensitive” and guilty of “ridiculing the tragedy in Newtown.”

Shaken by the backlash Montalto stated, “I cried for three days straight when everything happened.  But in my mind, it wasn’t the gun that killed people, it was a very sick individual.”

Montalto and Jenny-Lu’s bakery has since received some positive attention from local gun owners — feel free to head over to her Facebook page and show her some support.

Ex- CNN Reporter: I Received Orders to Manipulate News to Demonize Syria and Iran



Ex-CNN reporter Amber Lyon revealed that during her work for the channel she received orders to send false news and exclude some others which the US administration did not favor with the aim to create a public opinion in favor of launching an aggression on Iran and Syria.

Lyon was quoted by the Slovak main news website as saying that the mainstream US media outlets intentionally work to create a propaganda against Iran to garner public opinion's support for a military invasion against it.

She revealed that the scenario used before launching the war on Iraq is being prepared to be repeated where Iran and Syria are now being subject to constant 'demonization'.

Mr. Seward’s Threadbare Compliant of British Recognition

The Lincoln administration entertained many outright fictions from its peculiar ten-percent of a State’s population (in areas occupied by Northern troops) able to establish a new “Vichy” government; creating the new State of West Virginia without the consent of the State in which the area resided; to claiming that its war against the South was waged against mere domestic insurgents and not belligerents entitled to recognition and trade with foreign powers. After the war, the US government pursued claims against England for trading with the insurgents.
Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
"The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"

Mr. Seward’s Threadbare Compliant of British Recognition:

“After sketching the origin of what he calls the “domestic insurrection,” Mr. [Hamilton] Fish [in 1870] says: -- “In such a contest [as the War Between the States], the Government of the United States was entitled to expect the earnest goodwill, sympathy and moral support of Great Britain.” 

After expressing the “painful astonishment” which the manifest absence of that sympathy produced, Mr. Fish gives an elaborate rechauffee of Mr. [William] Seward’s complaints against Great Britain, beginning with the allegation that the Declaration of Neutrality and the admission of the South to belligerent rights were premature and unfriendly to the United States, that they gave encouragement to the “insurgents,” and enabled them to prolong the contest…..

But Lord Clarendon, in his answer, gave some additional reasons why the complaint was in itself unreasonable, and why the grounds upon which it was advanced is untenable...

Lord Clarendon said that at the time when the Queen was advised to issue the Proclamation of Neutrality, hostilities had actually begun, that the Confederate States had established a defacto Government, with all the machinery of civil and military power; that Fort Sumter had fallen, and the Confederate troops were in occupation of the Shenandoah valley, and were threatening Washington; that the Confederate President had called for a levy of 32,000 troops, to which the seceded States had promptly responded; that the Federal President had called for 75,000 volunteers, and then for 42,000 more; that as fast as the regiments could be armed they marched to the defence of Washington, and that the contending armies were, indeed, “face to face.”

In respect to the operations at sea, he said that “on the 17th of April the Confederate President had issued a Proclamation offering to grant letters of marque, and two days after the Federal President had declared the Southern ports to be in a state of blockade; that one or more British ships had actually been captured while attempting to run the blockade; that Confederate privateers were already at sea; that one had been captured on the 8th of May by the [US] ship Harriet Lane; that a few days after the American barque Ocean Eagle, of Rockland, Maine, was captured by the Confederate privateer Calhoun, of New Orleans, and that at the same port the Sumter was fitting out for her cruise.

Lord Clarendon especially drew attention to the following facts: He said: -- “Mr Seward, writing at the time, and previously to the Queen’s Proclamation” (May 4), “characterized the proceedings of the Confederates as “open, flagrant, deadly war,” and as “civil war.” (Congress Papers, 1861, p. 165); It was also judicially decided by the Supreme Court of the United States,  in the case of the Amy Warwick and other prizes, that “the proclamation of blockade was in itself official and conclusive evidence that a state of war existed which demanded and authorized such a measure.”   

In view of the foregoing, Lord Clarendon said: -- “The date at which the Civil War actually commenced has, therefore, been fixed by the published dispatches of the Secretary of State, by proceedings in Congress, by the formal judgment of the United States prize-courts, as well as by the universal assent of all the neutral Powers concerned, and he expresses a very justifiable surprise that Mr. Seward’s threadbare complaint of British Recognition of an accomplished and admitted fact should be revived four years after the close of the war.”

Wounded soldier says he was kicked out of mall for using Segway

 Trost was riding his Segway, a device that keeps his leg from hurting, through Foothills Mall.

An injured war hero says he was unfairly kicked out of Foothills Mall in Maryville. Master Sgt. Michael Trost is unable to walk for extended periods after suffering four gunshot wounds while serving in Afghanistan.

Trost was riding his Segway, a device that keeps his leg from hurting, through Foothills Mall.
That's when a security guard told him to leave.

We covered Sgt. Trost's grand homecoming last spring. The whole community even came together on a construction project, to make his life comfortable, after he spent months in the hospital.

Several surgeries later, he has chronic nerve pain in his legs, and uses a Segway that was given to him through a program that helps out wounded vets.

"If I walk long distances my leg will start hurting. My sciatic nerve was severed, and I can't go long distances. I need to take a break," said Sgt. Trost, showing us the device, and explaining why he needs it.

On Thursday, he was at the Maryville mall, searching for a pair of jeans.

"A security guard approached me and said I was going to have to take out the Segway. I told him it was an ADA, or a handicap piece of equipment. I had the handicap sticker on it. He goes, not in this mall," described Sgt. Trost.

Intelligence insider: Obama administration agenda to “kill U.S Dollar”

Via David

This week, I had a series of very sobering discussions with my highly-placed source within the intelligence world. The information he provided hit me like a proverbial tons of bricks. It connects everything we are seeing play out across the world, from the economic problems in Europe to the U.S. DHS ammunition acquisition orders and even the “gun control” debate. If you’re like me, you’re looking for clarity, context and focus with regard to all of the events we’re constantly hearing about but seem to lack legitimate explanation. I believe this report will provide the context and clarity we are all seeking, but I must warn you that the picture is not pretty.

The economic agenda: In plain sight 

Some might be surprised to learn that the fate of America’s economy has already been determined, verified and announced by the Obama White House. Yet, it has received scant attention from the corporate media. In 2011, economist Kyle Bass interviewed a senior member of the Obama administration about its planned solutions for fixing the US economy and trade deficit[ia].

Among the questions he asked was about U.S. exports and wages, but the question itself was not nearly as important as the response he received from this senior administration official. In fact, this single, seven word response clarifies everything, explains everything, and leaves little else to discuss:

“We’re just going to kill the dollar.”

There it is, the entire agenda in one short sentence. It explains everything we’ve been seeing domestically and globally. That one statement makes every other question irrelevant, or otherwise answers all economic questions and explains everything. Nothing else matters. I urge you to ponder that statement and all that it implies. Doing so will provide you with the clarity to understand not only what is taking place today, but what is yet to come.

How many Peeps can a 50 cal go through? Cadbury Easter Eggs too!

This is either fake, or at least staged with trained peeps and sugar bunnies. I've been hunting both species for a few years now and have never seen more than 3 peeps in a single group, let alone being lined up so perfectly. For the bunnies, because they prefer to hunt alone, it is rare to even see two together, unless you happen to stumble across a family in a den. But the biggest giveaway is that the peep and bunny are natural enemies that, in the wild, fight over resources.

Obama eligibility appeal in Roy Moore's court


Oh boy, this should have legs.

Many cases challenging Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility have come and gone, but now an appeal has been filed with a state Supreme Court led by a newly elected chief justice who has expressed doubt about Obama’s qualification for office.

Roy Moore was elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court last November, a decade after he defied a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state Supreme Court building.

Now, 2012 Constitution Party presidential nominee Virgil Goode and Alabama Republican Party leader Hugh McInnish are asking the state’s highest court to force Secretary of State Beth Chapman to verify that all candidates on the state’s 2012 ballot were eligible to serve.

Attorney Larry Klayman, founder of the Washington, D.C.-watch dog Judicial Watch and now head of Freedom Watch, filed the appeal Tuesday with the Alabama Supreme Court, asking for oral arguments.

“We are hopeful that Chief Justice Moore and the rest of the jurists on the Alabama Supreme Court will follow the law,” Klayman told WND.

Klayman says he and his team “have great respect for Chief Justice Moore and his integrity and legal acumen.”

“He is one courageous and brave man. There are few in this country.”

Cyprus President's Family Transferred Tens Of Millions To London Days Before Deposit Haircuts

Via comment by Terry on  Bank of Cyprus big depositors could lose up to 60%

A day after former Cypriot President Vassilou was found to be among many elite Cypriot (politicians and businessmen) who had loans written-off by the major (now insolvent) banks; it appears the rot is far fouler than expected.

In a somewhat stunning (or purely coincidental) revelation, ENETEnglish reports that Cypriot newspaper Haravgi claims that current President Nicos Anastasiades' family businesses transferred 'dozens of millions' from their Laiki Bank accounts to London just a week before the devastating depositor haircuts were unleashed upon his people.

Of course, the denials are loud and Anastasiades has demanded an investigation into the claims; we are sure the government-selected 'independent' committee will be as thorough as the Libor anti-trust investigators. As a reminder, as we noted yesterday, here are Cyprus' gun control laws.

Charlotte Free: Young Conservative Model

Dixie alerted me to this and we both were pleasantly surprised. Perhaps there is hope. 

Anonymous asked: are you proud to be an American?

"No matter how corrupt our government is, no matter how stupid the rest of the world thinks we are, I know its not our fault because the media is totally controlled, and I am 100% proud to be an American. I have a strong belief in hard work and the American dream. I've seen so many immigrant families from Mexico and other countries come here with hardly nothing and within a few years of elbow grease are living in a house with their family. I love my country which is why I care so much about change and challenging corruption, just like the Constitution says we should!"

The Founders on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Via comment by Phil Katz  on "Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right."

"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
-George Mason
Co-author of the Second Amendment

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
- Thomas Jefferson
Third President of the United States.

"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrence's and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
-George Washington
First President of the United States

"The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."
-Thomas Paine

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."
-Richard Henry Lee
American Statesman, 1788

"The great object is that every man be armed." and "Everyone who is able may have a gun."
-Patrick Henry
American Patriot

"Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not."
-Thomas Jefferson
Third President of the United States

                                     The Law on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

“The Militia Act of 1792 would require that all able-bodied white males enroll in the militia and provide their own arms. Both the power of the states to maintain militias and the right of individuals to have arms for self-defense were considered basic.”
-Halbrook, Stephen P. (2008-06-25). The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms (pp. 4-5). National Book Network - A. Kindle Edition.
