South Vietnam Before 1975 V

Evacuation: C-141 from Saigon to Clark AFB above and below.  Can't remember for sure but believe I couldn't find the flash for my Canon FT.

Clowns entertained us at Clark.  Really made the kids happy.

The American women that helped out were wives of B-52 pilots who said their husbands were eager to return if given orders. We had a briefing that said it was possible the Vietnamese would be returned to Vietnam.  You can imagine how that would have gone over.  Also the PI government was worried about us landing there considering the Vietnamese government had been overthrown and replaced by Communists.
I believe this was in Guam where we had a long wait for the next flight to CA.

It appears Dwayne Dixon, the far-left militia member who teaches anthropology at the University of North Carolina, is in the news again. This time a video has surfaced in which he is seen telling his students that he confronted Charlottesville Unite The Right attendee, James Fields, with a loaded semi-automatic rifle, which some have speculated was the catalyst for James to speed through the crowd killing Heather Heyer.

Righteous Cause Mythology


From April to July of 1863 British Lieutenant Colonel Arthur J. L. Fremantle visited all but two Confederate states. He entered at Brownsville, Texas and finished by observing the battle of Gettysburg from the Rebel side where he was a character in both Michael Shaara’s novel, The Killer Angels, and the corresponding film, Gettysburg. About 140 years later one of his descendants, Tom Fremantle, retraced his ancestor’s steps in the company of a pack mule. Tom summarized the second trip in his book The Moonshine Mule. By the time Tom reached northern Virginia he noticed certain people were:

James Clapper avoids charges for 'clearly erroneous' surveillance testimony

 Nervous much?
Former intelligence chief James Clapper is poised to avoid charges for allegedly lying to Congress following five years of apparent inaction by the Justice Department.

Clapper, director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, admitted giving “clearly erroneous” testimony about mass surveillance in March 2013, and offered differing explanations for why.

Two criminal statutes that cover lying to Congress have five-year statutes of limitations, establishing a Monday deadline to charge Clapper, who in retirement has emerged as a leading critic of President Trump.

The under-oath untruth was exposed by National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who sparked national debate on surveillance policy with leaks to the press.

A Great Intellectual Silence

 Image result for jefferson davis uniform

The message sent to us today when reading the biography and accomplishments of Jefferson Davis of Mississippi include the following: West Point graduate, married to Sarah Knox Taylor, daughter of General and President Zachary Taylor, colonel of Mississippi Volunteers in the Mexican War, served in both the United States House and Senate, Secretary of War, pleaded for peace between North and South in 1860-61 as a Unionist, and served as president of the Confederate States of America, 1861-65. Few Americans exhibited as distinguished a career as Davis.
Bernhard Thuersam,   The Great American Political Divide

A Great Intellectual Silence

“So the anti-Confederate backlash has come to Dallas . . . but, then, maybe not. Maybe that isn’t fundamentally what happened when the Dallas school board, in June [1999], voted to rename mostly black and Hispanic Jefferson Davis Elementary School for Barbara Jordan, the late Houston congresswoman.

Here, likely, is what happened: Within the community at large, a failure of nerve occurred, a moral power outage, leaving residents plunged in darkness. The same failure of nerve afflicted New Orleans over a year ago, when the name of infamous slaveowner George Washington was removed from an elementary school, to be replaced with – I don’t recall and don’t care to; Sojourner Truth or some like luminary.

You could say, and I wouldn’t argue the point, that on both occasions the antebellum South received deliberate kicks in the groin, and that this form of reprisal was unfortunate and unjust. Davis, Washington: prisoners in a kangaroo court, due to peripheral association with the peculiar institution of slavery. Malarkey!

Also, you can bet your bottom dollar this species of malarkey is sure to spread, two large Southern cities having capitulated so cravenly.

Now, to begin with, we’re talking here about education. Well, about public schools at least. You might expect, in the context of a controversy over the naming of a school, some attention to historical accuracy. Ah, no.

“The name sends a very bad message,” says Se-Gwyn Tyler, who represents the city council district in which ex-Jefferson Davis Elementary is located. Well, ma’am, do you really know that?

Ever read a biography of Davis? Know where he lived, what posts he held before the war? How historians evaluate him? If this is the standard of knowledge regnant at the decision-making level in Dallas, how can one be sure the Davis critics are right that Barbara Jordan is the ideal role model?

Are we to sit quietly while a dead man is vilified and misrepresented? While history itself is distorted? We’re not to utter a peep or reproach? Not so much as a civil objection? That would seem the case.

The major fault in the Davis matter, it seems to me, doesn’t attach to those who sought a name change. The major fault attaches to those who sat through the name-change procedure with eyes and mouths resolutely closed, believing apparently that expiation was a larger public good than truth. Failure of nerve indeed! Cowardice on the half-shell. Hush, we mustn’t offend.

Well, actually, it’s all right to offend those who retain some reverence for the dead; we just mustn’t offend members of cultures and subgroups arguing for affirmation.

A great intellectual silence descends over modern society. We can’t talk about everything; we certainly can’t talk in a spirit of honesty. And we know it. This is what rankles: We know we can’t, and we pass it off as of no great or immediate consequence. Failure of nerve.”

I Grew Up in a Communist System. Here’s What Americans Don’t Understand About Freedom

Only in a free-market system can we truly achieve individual liberty and human flourishing. 

Individual freedom can only exist in the context of free-market capitalism. Personal freedom thrives in capitalism, declines in government-regulated economies, and vanishes in communism. Aside from better economic and legislative policies, what America needs is a more intense appreciation for individual freedom and capitalism.

I was born and raised in communist Romania during the Cold War, a country in which the government owned all the resources and means of production. The state controlled almost every aspect of our lives: our education, our job placement, the time of day we could have hot water, and what we were allowed to say.

One Jew’s Red Pill Journey – Part 4 of ?

  Image result for Musings from a capital-C Conservative American Jew.
One summer, somewhere in the high school years, I did some volunteer work at a Physics lab at MIT.  It was interesting work and, apparently, my measurements played a central role in a paper in the then-hot new field of Chaos Theory.  But what makes this experience relevant was a one-page essay photocopied from some magazine and stuck onto a storage cabinet .  
 In that essay the writer criticized liberal attitudes towards oil, pointing out – among many other things – that oil not only fueled hotrods, but our critical defense machinery.  And, thus, our interest in oil-producing nations, not to mention force projection and a strong military, was a matter of national security.
When I asked to copy it, the lead researcher took it down and as he handed it to me, asked why I wanted a copy.  “Because I think he’s right, and I like what he says.”

That lead researcher got bug-eyed.  “We put it up for laughs because he’s an idiot!”

Fake News and the Tet ('68) Offensive

The term “fake news” is overused, and it certainly isn’t something we want Big Government trying to criminalize, as in Europe. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a serious problem. It even cost us a war, following the Tet Offensive launched 50 years ago today:
Despite their ferocity, by most objective military standards, the communists achieved none of their goals. U.S. and South Vietnamese forces held fast, regrouped and fought back. By late March they had achieved a decisive victory over the communist forces. …
But in living rooms across America, the nightly news described an overwhelming American defeat.

Visa Refuses to Cut Ties with Semi-Automatic Rifle Manufacturers

Via Bill


Visa rejected calls to cut ties with semi-automatic rifle manufacturers by announcing it is not their job to “[set] restrictions on the sale of lawful goods and services.”

Their announcement comes after an anti-Second Amendment campaign resulted in over dozen companies cutting ties with the NRA. It also follows a New York Times’ suggestion that Visa and Mastercard could circumvent Congress and restrict “assault weapon” sales by refusing business with “assault weapon” manufacturers and/or dealers.

According to CBS San Francisco, Visa received a petition with 150,000 signatures, asking the credit card company to refuse to process purchases of “assault weapons.”

Visa responded, “We do not believe Visa should be in the position of setting restrictions on the sale of lawful goods and services.”

Clay Blasts Combat Vet, Congressman Brian Mast for Supporting Black Rifle Ban

Via Terry "Mast is our congressional rep. I never liked him but did vote for him

Florida congressman Brian Mast begins his op-ed in the New York Times, thusly, “The most important and unregrettable time of my life was the 12 years I spent in the Army. I became a bomb technician because I wanted to save lives. I nearly gave my own life for that — I lost both my legs and a finger when a roadside bomb detonated beneath me — and have known more heroes than I can count who died defending others.”

Don’t get blindsided by the setup.  Rep. Mast is throwing his combat experience in your face to elicit sympathy and to set himself up as an authority on firearms.  Playing the humble hero card may work on many readers.  Not me.  I am also a combat Veteran, retired from the U.S. Army Special Forces. I know a thing or two about gunfights, having been in my fair share.  And I’d like to challenge some of the claims Rep. Mast makes in that NY Times piece as well as to push back on his stance that the government should ban black rifles.

Below you’ll find some excerpts from the article along with my rebuttals.  I’m callin’ Rep. Mast on the carpet.

Give VA Secretary David Shulkin the Boot

 Give VA Secretary David Shulkin the Boot

While the Department of Veterans Affairs secretary lives high on the hog and his lying chief of staff resigns in disgrace while escaping any punishment, legions of vets every day in this country are denied the medical care they earned.

President Trump was supposed to drain the swamp. But at the historically fraud-ridden and profligate VA, the alligators continue feasting on the public dime.

Trump's VA secretary, David Shulkin, is an Obama holdover. His main agenda is to block any real reforms for veterans, which includes expanding their ability to obtain care from private doctors and hospitals. His daughter, Jennifer, is a Harvard law student and loudmouth Huffington Post contributor who used her Twitter account recently to defend her dad against "right-winged, pro-privatization Trump appointees."

Democrat Sheriff Refuses To Give Deputies Rifle-Resistance Vests Due To Immigration Policies


In Texas, Democrat Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez is punishing her sheriff's deputies by refusing to give them state-funded bulletproof vests designed to stop rifle rounds because she refuses to hold arrested illegal aliens for federal immigration authorities so they can be processed for deportation.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced in January that Texas would fund $23 million in grants to purchase new vests for approximately 450 law enforcement agencies around the state. KXAN-TV reports:

The Legacy Abandoned

Via comment by Reborn on  Founding Intentions

Abandonment of the greatest estate bequeathed to mankind in the history of the world.

    The constitution granted the government the power to administrate and carry on Corporate functions. Under the Common Law, inherent Rights cannot devolve to a “body politic” through a corporation. Rights only devolve to human beings (as a body politic) through and by way of a “Trust”. Under Constitutional law in order to determine the meaning of a written instrument a court must look to the title. In our case it is the Preamble. The Preamble clearly shows a Freehold/ feesimple absolute in it. (Pursuant to the Laws of Real Property that have been in existence since day one.)
