Goodies From Ol' Remus


Hugh Latimer at Survival Blog mentioned this video, "337 lbs of Potatoes! NO digging, NO watering, and NO work!", from the Back To Reality blog. It's at YouTube, 8m 38s. It parallels our experiment this year but they did it on a larger scale. We dug a divet and covered 'em over like you're "supposed to". They didn't. Imagine our embarrassment. But after covering them with straw and giving them an initial soaking we did no watering, gave 'em no attention, and the yield was great. This is a method you have to try.

Repost 2012: "The river was running red with blood.": THE 62nd BORDER RANGER CIDG CAMP LE-KHANH (POLEI-KLENG)

This piece confirms most of the events as penned in Kontum: The Battle To Save South Vietnam 1972, 2011 by LTC Thomas P. McKenna pages 154 - 157 Chapter 13 Cut Off and Surrounded and so much so, that I wonder if some of the latter has been borrowed from the former.  I took the liberty of cleaning up some of the translation, though it is still far from perfect, but I think sufficient the way it stands.
Polei Kleng is the name of a hill, 22km northwest of Kontum, the further most city in the central highlands of south Vietnam.  In June 1966, US Special Forces built a CIDG (Civilian Irregular Defense Group) camp on the hill top and named it Polei Kleng (A-241).  The Vietnamese called it Le Khanh This camp functioned as a blockage to stop the enemy expansion and pressure into the city of Kontum.  On the 31st of August 1970, the camp was transferred and converted to the 62nd Border Ranger battalion and placed under the command of the ARVN Ranger High Command.

During the Easter Offensive, the NVA launched a massive attack, crossing the three-border (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia) area, destroying the RVN 22nd  division and captured the town Tan Canh, Dakto.  The Airborne defensive line around the hills in the southwest of Tan Canh collapsed. Camp Le Khanh was the last resistance outpost against the advancing NVA forces into the city of Kontum, therefore the communists must flatten the camp at all costs.

GREAT NEWS: Category 5 Hurricane Willa Headed Directly Toward 10,000 Migrant Caravan Path

Via Stephanie 


Update 10/22: Hurricane Willa, as reported by the National Hurricane Center, is now a Category 5 hurricane.

It appears that the migrant caravan, which has been reported to upward of 10,000 strong, might run into some extra trouble on their march to seek American asylum. A massive hurricane (named Willa) is set to cross the path that the migrants will eventually cross.
There’s also a slightly smaller disturbance named Vincente to the south of Willa that meteorologists say will be consumed by the massively growing Willa, but will still pose a threat for dangerous conditions for the caravan, which has already seen its fair share of struggles with food, sanitation and organization. reports:

The only state where Democratic-affiliated voters are outperforming Republicans is in Nevada, according to the eight races for which TargetSmart provided data to the outlet. 

Senate races in seven of those states have already begun.

During an interview Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez discussed the apparent fading blue wave heading into the 2018 midterm elections as the GOP excitement has intensified.

Perez said he still has a lot of “confidence” and the Democrats have some “great candidates” running, but he “always knew” this election would be close.

“[L]isten, we always knew that this election was going to be close,” Perez stated. “I don’t use the term ‘blue wave.’ I always talk about the need for the blocking and tackling. I always talk about the need for organizing, to make sure you are leading with your values, and that’s how we have been winning throughout this year and throughout 2017, is talking about those key issues that matter most. I still have a lot of confidence in the House. I know the Senate is a tougher map, but we have got great candidates. And then I look at these governor’s races, and I see the work that’s being done.”

Memories of Vietnam: Fighting alongside a well-led unit of Vietnamese Rangers



When Americans thinks of the Vietnam War, they tend to reflect only what our troops did. 

By Col. Keith Nightingale, U.S. Army (ret.)

When Americans thinks of the Vietnam War, they tend to reflect only what our troops did. The actions and activities of the Vietnamese military itself is largely forgotten which is unfair to the whole. The vast majority of the fighting was performed by Vietnamese troops supported by a large U.S. advisory effort bringing our resources to them. Thousands of U.S. military served as advisors from all Services to all Services. The Vietnamese units ranged from very good to very bad-not unlike our own. When we consider that they had been fighting since 1954, the varying quality and emotional exhaustion is understandable compared to our own.

Many of these units were consistently superb and were to the final end in 1975.

Caravan Puts Trump Legacy on the Line

 Caravan Puts Trump Legacy on the Line

Our mainstream media remain consumed with the grisly killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and how President Donald Trump will deal with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Understandably so, for this is the most riveting murder story since O.J. Simpson and has strategic implications across the Middle East.

Yet far more critical to the future of our civilization is the ongoing invasion of the West from the Third World.

Murder suspect requests Robert E. Lee portrait be removed from Virginia courtroom before his trial

 Murder suspect requests Robert E. Lee portrait be removed from Virginia courtroom before his trial
“We’re all black,” Robinson’s sister, Donna Washington, told the Times-Dispatch. “This has nothing to do with the Robert E. Lee portrait sitting in the courtroom.”
A Virginia man is requesting the removal of a Robert E. Lee portrait from the courtroom in which he is facing trial in a capital murder case.

Attorneys for Darcel Nathaniel Murphy filed a motion requesting the removal of the portrait and other Confederate memorabilia, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The motion, filed Monday, argues that Murphy’s trial should not be held in a courtroom with “images that could be interpreted as glorifying, memorializing, or otherwise endorsing the efforts of those who fought on behalf of the Confederate cause or its principles.”

Washington & Lee wets the bed -- makes deal with anti-history devil

University President William Dudley, who would not have been worthy to dig latrines for either of the great generals, will soon be forgotten from history. Except, perhaps, for his brief effort to obliterate it.


Washington & Lee University has — officially — wet the bed.

Tilting at snowflake machines, the once proud and serious university has decided to cash out its winnings from history in a hopeless effort to pay off the self-appointed history Gestapo now clanging at the gates with torches and pitchforks.

Just ahead of the fiery mob, university officials will take down portraits, lock museum doors and rename buildings on campus in order to protect their precious young adolescents from being exposed to some of the harsher realities of American history — as well as the founding of the university itself.

A slippery slope, indeed.

What will you surrender the next time they come in a hot fever?

Homeland Security Warns of Cartels’ Role in Migrant Caravan

 Central American migrants walking to the U.S. start their day departing Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, Sunday, Oct. 21, 2018. Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, about 5,000 Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico. Their numbers swelled overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)

“Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen warned Sunday that the illegal immigrant caravan heading toward the U.S. could be exploited by cartels that control most of the illegal flow of people through Latin America,” Stephen Dinan reports for The Washington Times. “While we closely monitor the caravan crisis, we must remain mindful of the transnational criminal organizations and other criminals that prey on the vulnerabilities of those undertaking the irregular migration journey,” Secretary Nielsen said in a statement.

There are now TWO CARAVANS of illegal aliens marching through Central America and Mexico from Honduras to the United States.
The second caravan of 2,000 illegals set off this weekend.

The first caravan may reach the Texas border by Election Day.

The illegals think President Donald Trump is the devil because he wants a country with borders.

WaPo Ran Kavanaugh Story With Knowingly False Information

BREAKING: 1 article was WaPo on Georgetown Prep, which falsely suggested that they were hiring an alumni director to deal w bad publicity from Kavanaugh story.

I've now obtained the email exchange between the WaPo reporter and the school, which makes the story look even worse.
-I would have written the item no matter the date the job was posted
-I really did miss the response about the date-I KNOW I shouldn’t have, but that’s what mistakes are
-I don’t mean to sound blasé about a correction. Believe me, I hate them\have kicked myself plenty over it
