Truly it was “one of the most awesome armadas ever assembled,” as Major Bill Stocker, in command of the lead B-52, later described it. The roar could be heard and vibrations felt 10 miles away when our 78 giant bombers went to full throttle on all eight turbojet engines, one after the other, over 2  1/2 hours, and took off from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.

The Myth of Tom and Sally


In 1993 the Washington Post published an article on research being conducted by an accomplished Richmond lawyer named Robert Cooley. According to this article, among many additional details in regard to the subject, Cooley had been working with scholars for years to examine land deeds owned by the descendants of Thomas Jefferson, for the purpose of investigating specifically what land had been inherited and then developed by these grandchildren of Jefferson as the City of Washington D.C. expanded.

Trump Campaign will Sue CNN for Bias After Project Veritas’ Latest Leaks


President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has vowed to file a lawsuit against CNN and is seeking a “substantial payment” in the wake of a series of undercover videos showing bias against the Republican president inside the network.

“Never in the history of this country has a president been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation,” Trump lawyer Charles Harder writes to CNN President Jeff Zucker and Executive Vice President David Vigilante.

Judge Finds Serious ‘Disconnect’ in ATF’s Classification of AR-15 Lower Receivers as ‘Firearms’


A judge in California issued a tentative order this week finding a “disconnect” in the ATF’s classification of AR-15 lower receivers as “firearms.”

The case began when the ATF launched an investigation and subsequent prosecution against Joseph Roh, who they accused of illegally manufacturing and selling AR-15 receivers in a warehouse outside Los Angeles.

After deliberating for more than a year, US District Court Judge James V. Selna determined that because an AR-15 lower receiver does not house the bolt or breechblock and is not threaded to the barrel, as defined in 27 C.F.R. § 478.11, it does not constitute a “receiver” and cannot be considered a “firearm” under federal law.

Faked Syrian Atrocity Video and the Rush to Condemn Trump

There it was for all to see Sunday night, October 13…right there on ABC Nightly News (and then re-shown on “Good Morning America”): grotesque and horrible film footage of Turkish army units shelling and massacring our defenseless Kurdish allies and their families in northeastern Syria. You could hear Lindsey Graham wailing at top voice: “Stop the atrocities! Stop the genocide!”

There was just one small problem: the film footage shown by ABC News was faked, it was not of Turks massacring helpless Kurds. It was, instead, film footage of a nighttime arms demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. ABC News’ announcer, David Muir, intoned that the situation in Syria “is rapidly spiraling out of control.”

Trump Used the Options He Had in Syria


There was no reason to leave a few Special Forces in the middle of an armed conflict when, yes, Erdogan might be willing to risk war with the U.S.
There has been a great deal of outrage expressed over the fact that the United States did not prevent Turkey from initiating the military operation to create a “buffer zone” in northern Syria. The major objection seems to be that in withdrawing the 100 or so American Special Operations forces who had been stationed in the area, the United States was giving permission for the operation and abandoning the Kurds who have helped us in the fight against ISIS.

I don’t see the criticism; in fact, far from abandoning the Kurds, the United States has consistently opposed the Turkish buffer-zone operation and used every means to prevent it that were consistent with America’s overriding national interests in the region.

Trump Monthly Total Approval – September 2019

 Friday, October 18, 2019
Just over half of voters still believe in the likelihood of an illegal high-level effort to stop the Trump presidency, but not nearly as many expect anyone to be punished for it. Voters are evenly divided over which of the major 2016 presidential campaigns is more likely to have had illegal foreign help.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s likely senior law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Donald Trump from winning the presidency. That includes 34% who say it’s Very Likely. Thirty-six percent (36%) consider high-level illegality as unlikely, with 22% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Admiral Huan Nguyen's Historical Day

Via Mary Nguyen "Rear Admiral Huan Nguyen is surviving son of Colonel Tuan Nguyen whose family was murdered during Tet 1968. His family's murderer was later executed by General Loan Nguyen. This incident was captured by Pulitzer prize winning photographer Eddie Adam (Source:

Today,  Huan Nguyen, age 60, became the first Vietnamese-born  US Navy Rear Admiral.  He is the fourth Vietnamese-born general and flag officers.  US Army Major General Viet Xuan Luong, age 54, was promoted in 2014 and soon to be US Army Major General Lap The Chau Flora, age 57, was promoted in 2016.  Not in picture is US Marine Corps Brigadier General Bill Seely III (promoted in 2016).  

Nguyen was born in Hue Vietnam, the son of an armor officer in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam. During the 1968 Tet Offensive, Nguyen’s mother and father, along with his five brothers and sister were killed by Viet Cong Communist guerillas in their family home outside Saigon. Nine-year-old Nguyen was shot in the arm and thigh, with another bullet piercing his skull. He stayed with his mother for two hours, until she bled out and died. Amazingly, Nguyen survived and escaped after dark.  

In 1975, at age 16, they fled Vietnam, seeking refuge in the United States following the fall of Saigon.




Theme from "The Lion King"

As the news spread about the nomination of Navy Captain Huấn Từ Nguyễn to be rear admiral, some astute studiers of the Vietnam War could not help but notice the captain's history.

At 14, Nguyen arrived in Guam as refugee right after the Fall of Saigon in 1975.  

Seven years before, he was badly injured during the attack by the communist rebels during the surprise Tet Offensive.   Some of the rebels pretended to be civilians and infiltrated key areas in Saigon.   Nguyen's family was captured at their home in the early morning of the fight.  The rebels targeted his family because his dad, Lt. Colonel Tuan Nguyen, was the head of an armored division protecting the city.   His parents along with his 6 siblings and his 80 years old grandma were executed.  He was the only one in his family survived the brutality.

Tulsi Gabbard Calls CNN & NY Times "Completely Despicable" On Debate Stage For Their "Smears"

Schiff pushed Volker to say Ukraine felt pressure from Trump

In a secret interview, Rep. Adam Schiff, leader of the House Democratic effort to impeach President Trump, pressed former United States special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker to testify that Ukrainian officials felt pressured to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter as a result of Trump withholding U.S. military aid to Ukraine.

Volker denied that was the case, noting that Ukrainian leaders did not even know the aid was being withheld and that they believed their relationship with the U.S. was moving along satisfactorily, without them having done anything Trump mentioned in his notorious July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

When Volker repeatedly declined to agree to Schiff's characterization of events, Schiff said, "Ambassador, you're making this much more complicated than it has to be."

18 Photos on the Streets of Nha Trang in the Late 1960s


White-sand beaches stretch beyond the horizon, towering mountains sit silently in the distance: for the most part, the natural landscape of Nha Trang remains relatively unchanged between the late 1960s and 2019. It’s the people and skyline that are vastly different.

This set of photos was taken by Clare Love, who toured Vietnam in 1967 and 1968. Judging by the sparse amount of vehicles and people on the street, the sleepy coastal town led a much simpler life than today, with nary a tourist in sight, either in town or on the beach.

In 2019, a visit to Nha Trang will yield many photos with Russian- and Chinese-language shopfronts, the result of the city’s popularity as an affordable destination for snowbirds. The rise of the local tourism industry undeniably lifted many families, who undertake services catering to the surge of international travelers, out of poverty. But unbridled tourism has also brought about rampant concretization and the boom of high-rise hotels, which are choking the city and causing environmental disasters like landslides and water pollution.

Walk around town in a quaint Nha Trang that was relatively untouched by the pressures of tourism through the photos.

He befriended the ashes of a Vietnam veteran. Now he has to let him go.

Via Thang Bui

He served three tours in Vietnam, went through special forces training and became a Green Beret. He received the Bronze Star with Valor, the Army Air Medal for Heroism in Aerial Flight twice and a number of other medals. He learned Burmese. He worked in counter-intelligence and some of what he did is still classified, Rivera said. He retired in 1978 with a highly distinguished service record.
The ashes were found in a St. Petersburg attic. Nine years after his death, a soldier is buried with honors at Bay Pines National Cemetery.

Larry Rivera drove over the Gandy Bridge with the ashes of a man he’d never met.

This was before he was on a first-name basis with the urn. It was before he figured out exactly whose ashes were in it.

No one was sure what to do. Not the tenants who found the black and gold urn abandoned in the crawlspace of their St. Petersburg rental home. Not the dutiful neighbor they gave it to, who knew the dog tags found with it meant they had to do something and called a friend at MacDill Air Force Base.

And not Rivera, who ended up with the ashes.

What Price Prosperity?

However, there are a few bright spots in this otherwise grim summary of our current situation. States such as North Carolina have enacted programs to attempt to spur on economic development for entrepreneurs in rural areas. However, the problem persists that states are being overwhelmed through an influx of migration from the north, and an emphasis on material wealth over kith and kin. Until there is a reset in our economy and society the diagnosis is rather dire. Southerners must take active steps within their local communities to support local businesses, teach their children to take an active interest in their heritage and elect officials who will not sell out the past and future generations for the benefit of the present

The news media rarely, if ever, focuses on the impact on society and culture the price of economic growth. Nor do politicians.   This begs the question, what price is extracted from society and culture in the pursuit of economic growth, in particular, when the central and state governments along with the central bank play key roles, namely in the of the growth of debt as an asset and not a liability, state regulation, tax revenue increases and regulatory capture by industry. The pursuit of prosperity has a dramatic impact on the demographic makeup of the South, our value system and ultimately the culture of the southern nation.

Fall in Love with America’s Only Wild Dog: All About the Carolina Dog


Most of the dogs we’re familiar with trace their origins overseas—the pug from China, the Akita from Japan, the French bulldog, or the Borzoi from Russia. Is there such a thing as a truly American dog? Why, yes. But while certain breeds originated in North America, there’s only one wild dog we can claim: the Carolina Dog.

The Carolina dog looks an awful lot like the Australian dingo, and is sometimes called the “American Dingo” or “Dixie Dingo” because of its Southern roots.

The rule of law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by arbitrary decisions of individual government officials.

But what if he wins anyway? What if enough voters realize they’re being conned by the Democrats?

What if enough voters decide they don’t want to feel like unwanted usurpers in their own nation?

Pelosi Again Refuses To Hold Impeachment Vote

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Cal.), has again refused to hold a House floor vote to formally start an impeachment investigation. I have previously said that the allegation of self-dealing in the Ukrainian call could be an impeachable offense if a quid pro quo is established. However, Pelosi has undermined the position of the House by refusing to allow a vote that preceded the investigations in the Nixon and Clinton impeachments. As I stated in a recent column, this is a mistake if House Democrats are serious about pursuing an impeachment. Recently, in the case concerning Trump tax records, one of the three judges dissented on the basis that there has been no vote to establish the start of an impeachment investigation. Pelosi seems to believe that she can hold a press conference and expect courts to accept that a formal impeachment process has begun. Some judges are likely to be uncomfortable with such an immaculate impeachment.

 Pelosi announced Tuesday that she will not hold the vote despite calls from many to follow past practices.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
He has actually been able to shift the dial on what is deemed acceptable behavior and maintain a perception of trustworthiness, at least amongst his supporters.
Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, boldly went on record stating an impeachment inquiry will “only serve to embolden and energize President Trump’s supporters and create a landslide victory for the president.” He may well be right, but whether or not the impeachment inquiry energizes his supporters might have nothing to do with whether or not Trump is vindicated.

Whether or not Trump is proven guilty of wrongdoing or of lying, for many of his supporters, the

impeachment inquiry is unlikely to prove him any less trustworthy.

Nathaniel Holmes Morison, III, 83, of Welbourne, Middleburg, Virginia, died peacefully at home October 10thsurrounded by his family and his beloved dogs.  The son of Holmes and Sally Morison, Nat was born in Winchester, Virginia, and spent his childhood years in New York (his father was a broker on the Cotton Exchange) and summers in Virginia. He attended Trinity School in New York City (and was a member of the Knickerbocker Greys),Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia, and the University of Virginia.  He was a life-long devotee of the University where he lettered in soccer and boxed, and was honored for his leadership with membership in the TILKA society and the IMP society.  He also was devoted to his fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon, where he received its top honor, the Saer Award.  In 1959 he returned to Welbourne to run the family farm and continued in that role for the next 60 years, creating a sanctuary for retired horses.  He was a former vestryman of Upperville's Trinity Episcopal Church, a former board member of the Piedmont Fox Hounds (which was founded by his great-great grandfather in 1840, and is the oldest hunt in the United States), and the founder of the Goose Creek Jass and Ragtime Society whose annual Stomp and Cakewalk celebrations are now in their 46thyear.

The promotion of traditional jass of the 1920’s and earlier remained a passion throughout his life and he had musician friends across the country. He was an ardent advocate of conservation and preservation, and treasured history and tradition.  He loved the cities of New York, where he was a member of the National Arts Club, and New Orleans.  He made his mark in both places and established timeless relationships with a circle of friends from all walks of life.Known for his hospitality, he held court every evening at Welbourne with walking stick and pipe, welcoming all to join himon the front porch or by the parlour fire for a drink (preferably bourbon). He was the consummate Virginia gentleman and he took pride in upholding the values of the past.  He is survived by his wife, Sherry Weymouth Morison; daughter Rebecca Dulany Morison Schaefer, sons Nathaniel Ames Morison, Joshua Weymouth Morison and wife Amanda; brother George Harris Morison and wife Hope; grandsons Max and Luc Schaefer,  Uly Morison; nephews Beal Jacobs, Holmes Jacobs and wife Megan, South Morison and wife Maggie, Dulany Morison and wife Eleanor, niece Hatley Morison and husband Edwin.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Eleanor (Nellie) Morison.

A celebration of his life will be held at Welbourne at 3 o’clock, Friday October 25th.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Land Trust of Virginia, P.O. Box 14, Middleburg, VA 20118 (

 Nat Morison, owner of Welbourne has passed. He was the great grandson of Colonel Richard Dulany of the Valley Light Horse. He was an iconic, unique individual who marched to his own drummer with his stickball tournaments, milk punch get togethers on Sunday afternoons and his summer jazz festivals at Welbourne. He supported the Piedmont Hunt allowing Welbourne to continue as a fixture for the club. He enthusiastically supported all of our Civil War living history events that we held there over the last 30 years. He will be missed.

Indeed. I spent many a night and day there as a boy. George (Nat's younger brother) and I would place ice hockey in the pool when winter came to freeze the small amount of water needed.& Stick-ball on Sundays was indeed great. Brock
