excerpt from North Carolina author Robert Ruark’s best known novel
reads: “If a man does away with his traditional way of living and throws
away his good customs, he had better first make certain that he has
something of value to replace them.”
grew up in Wilmington where he learned to hunt and fish with his
grandfathers in the 1920s.
He entered the Chapel Hill campus of the
University of North Carolina (UNC) in 1931 at age fifteen.

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman has a very interesting post over on his Cryptomundo website. The post is about the "Rock Apes" of Vietnam. You can check out the post here. http://www.cryptomundo.com/cryptozoo-news/vn-rock-ape/ Make sure and read all the comments at the bottom of the post as they are every bit as intriguing as the article. That said, I had already heard of the so-called "Rock Apes"
some years ago from a buddy of mine who served in country with 1st
Marine Division, 1st Recon Battalion, Delta Company until he was wounded
in action on June 21, 1969. While researching details of marine sevice
during those years, I came across several references to the Rock Apes
and their encounters with Marine detachments, some of which I am going
to share here with the intention of adding more to the already existing
anecdotal record of these unusual cryptids.
2019 is the 80th anniversary of the Winter War (1939–1940) between
the Soviet Union and Finland. The small nation of Finland succeeded in
defending its territories against a far larger army of the Soviet Union.
On the 30th of November 1939 Soviet troops attacked Finland in order
to seize the areas which according to the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact
belonged to the Soviet Union.
Against all odds, Finland, a weak, sparsely populated and
diplomatically isolated nation, succeeded in causing staggering losses
on a far more potent aggressor by skillfully utilizing the wintery
This law professor taught Democrats a lesson. The only question was whether they’re willing to learn.
George Washington University’s Jonathan Turley is generally considered a liberal.
But he was the sole member of Wednesday’s parade of scholars to testify
before the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing who was
selected by the Republican side, according to the Washington Examiner.
It didn’t take long for a listener to find out why they wanted him.
1. I have ZERO issues with white people wanting to remain white
people.White people – and I am
as lily-white visually as you can get! – founded Western Civilization, the
greatest civilization to have ever existed.(I have zero issues with mixed-race marriages, being in one, but have no
problem whatsoever with whites marrying whites either.)
2. I have ZERO issues with nationalism; indeed, nations, not a
pan-global utopian (read: freedom-crushing Socialist state) are the true seats of freedom and cultural preservation.
Blue helmets make great targets. All kidding aside. There is no country
in the world, stupid enough to try and invade the United States. Just a
few days ago, Black Friday, the FBI did over 200,000 background checks
for gun purchases. And just a rough estimate, of one 50 round box of
ammo for each. We also bought another 10,000,000 rounds of ammo.
our military is as badass as they come. But they would lose a war here
in America. Sure they have nukes, but the patriot fighter is not living
in New York or Los Angles. Nuking a corn field in Iowa or a wheat field
in Nebraska won’t do much. The best fighter planes on the planet are
worthless, Ned down the road doesn’t have an air force. It would come
down to man against man. They do have an advantage with the armored
vehicles, but they don’t have enough in the entire military to patrol
all the back-roads of Kentucky, let alone the nation.
citizens own enough guns to equip every military in the world several
times. Why do you think democrats are working 24/7 to disarm us? They
know to become the dictators they dream of being. We the citizen need to
No, the professor lives in a bubble echo
chamber. Like all the left they only hear each other and believe they
represent everyone. Since they never hear a dissenting view. Truly, the
left are sheep, they love to follow. They think everyone else is also
sheep. Again, because everyone they know and talk to are the same. They
have no concept outside their circle, that there are people fiercely
independent. They know of no wolves, their entire world is made of
sheep. Like democrats and the media, they believe there opinion is the
only one. Except for a tiny few, deplorables.
In the United
States, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, we had about
701,000 full-time sworn officers in 2016. Adding in support people,
“civilian” staff, nonsworn personnel who do not carry weapons or make
arrests add another 1,050,000. Somewhere under two million total. The
American military doesn’t fare much better with raw numbers. There are
currently about 1,500,000 active duty troops. I can promise those
actually trained in combat is a much smaller number. Here is kind of a
breakdown of our troops from 2018.
Army Active Duty………….471,990 Army National Guard…….336,338 Navy Active Duty…………..325,395 Air Force Active Duty….....321,618 Army Reserve……………….288,725 Marine Corps Active Duty.185,415 Air National Guard………..107,469 Marine Corps Reserve…….102,492 Navy Reserve……………….…99,432 Air Force Reserve…………….97,097 Coast Guard Active Duty…..41,132 Coast Guard Reserve…………7,705
think those numbers make is clear just how few of our military are
ready for combat. And it is far less than the 1,500,000. Please, do not
think I am disparaging our military support people. The cooks, drivers,
mechanics, and others, they showed their abilities during every war.
Fighting and dying as bravely as any front line troop. They just are not
trained everyday for war.
Let’s not forget one other HUGE fact.
How many of our police and military will fight Americans, as UN and
with UN troops. Look across the country today, the number of Sheriffs
that are stating, they will not enforce gun bans or confiscations. I
have no idea, but I am willing to bet a small to medium number of police
and military would desert, rather than fight fellow citizens.
Unless we allow ourselves to be disarmed, there is no force in the world that can stand against the United States Citizen.
