What Makes This Musician Great?–Robert Johnson


The sixth Southern musician to be examined in this series of What Makes This Musician Great will be a bluesman that was so good he became a ghost story – Robert Johnson.

The Blues is probably the most significant musical form created anywhere in the world in the 20th century, and it absolutely came straight out of the Mississippi Delta, which is the floodplain area of the Mississippi River that extends into Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana.  “The Blues” is actually two different things – “Blues” refers to a major genre of American music, and “12-bar Blues” refers to the structural form of “The Blues,” which can be applied to music composed in practically every other genre and style available.  Obviously, Blues songs are in 12-bar Blues form, but so are many Rock songs, Jazz songs, Country songs, Tejano songs, Cajun songs, etc.  Someone could even compose an opera aria in a 12-bar Blues form if they wished.

The Blues evolved from Black field songs and work songs in Dixie around the turn of the 20th century.

Tuan Hoang had innumerable videos on this subject today and the people are not happy. They've even brought down tanks/APC's.


                In conclusion, "I’d say all of this on Twitter, but I can’t. You can, though."

Until this summer, Vietnam was a Covid success story.

Many Americans still think of Vietnam as a poor country of rice farmers. In fact, Vietnam’s economy has surged since 2000 as it picks up manufacturing priced out of China, its historic foe to the north. Fewer than 10 percent of Vietnam’s 100 million people now fall below the global poverty line.

Like China, Vietnam has a nominally Communist government better described as pro-growth and authoritarian. And like China, Vietnam moved aggressively to contain the coronavirus last year with apparent success.

Afghanistan: A Tragically Stupid War Comes to a Tragic End: Ron Paul

The Burning Platform

Sunday’s news reports that the Biden Administration mistakenly killed nine members of one Afghan family, including six children, in “retaliation” for last week’s suicide attack which killed 13 US servicemembers, is a sad and sick epitaph on the 20 year Afghanistan war.

Promising to “get tough” on ISIS, which suddenly re-emerged to take responsibility for the suicide attack, the most expensive military and intelligence apparatus on earth appears to have gotten it wrong. Again.

Interventionists love to pretend they care about girls and women in Afghanistan, but it is in reality a desperate attempt to continue the 20-year US occupation. If we leave, they say, girls and women will be discriminated against by the Taliban.

A defiant President Joe Biden defended his tumultuous exit from Afghanistan on Tuesday, refusing to admit mistakes or accept blame for lives lost or Americans left behind.

“Some say that the evacuation from Afghanistan could have been started sooner and completed in a more orderly fashion,” Biden said. “I respectfully disagree.”

280 Afghan girls world-renowned orchestra performers left behind in Kabul: United States gave Taliban power to override the 82nd Airborne

 Via  LargeMarge

 The girls were waiting for final approval from the Taliban when the US flight took off without them.

 Gee, I'm sure glad Biden won......👿

“The White House is spinning half-truths. The Taliban gets to determine who leaves and who does not,” Taylor added bitterly. “Never mind that the Taliban still has these lists. The fact that the United States of America would abdicate our security and the decisions of who can go and who must stay to the Taliban is nothing short of despicable."

It is the stuff of horror, heartache and helplessness: Afghan girls who have devoted their entire lives to making melodies have not only been silenced amid the Taliban takeover — they have been barred from entering the US military-run airport in Kabul.

Now, the clock has run out.

“We had seven buses filled with world-renowned orchestra performers — 280 girls all approved to go,” said Robert Stryk, a Washington fixer who has been coordinating private evacuation efforts in conjunction with former Navy SEAL and US Congressman Scott Taylor (R-Va.).

“Our hearts are broken,” he added. “These young girls spent 17 hours on a hot bus with no food or water and were 393 feet from freedom but were denied entry into the airport because the United States government gave [the Taliban] the power to override the US Army’s 82nd Airborne.

“Our elected leaders failed these 280 young girls.”

A Navy aviator helping Afghan-Americans evacuate Afghanistan contradicted the Biden administration's claims, saying that citizens trying to leave via the airport had been denied entry by Taliban officials.

Retired Navy aviator Brett Odom appeared on "Fox & Friends" Monday to discuss his efforts to evacuate stranded citizens from the city of Kabul. He also hit back against the Biden administration's denial of citizens being turned away.

The interview came hours after multiple rockets were launched at Kabul's airport but were intercepted by U.S. missile defense systems within the country.

Bad Moon Rising for Biden — and Us

Bad Moon Rising for Biden -- and Us

 Are the divisions between us becoming too great for us to remain one nation and one people?

So it was that, in the first August of the Biden presidency, the U.S. suffered defeat in its longest war, underwent a humiliating evacuation under the guns of its enemies, continued to endure the worst plague in 100 years, and saw an invasion of its southern border by illegal migrants that called into question whether we Americans retain the resolve to preserve our country. Nor is this all…

“April is the cruelest month,” wrote T. S. Eliot in the opening line of what is regarded as his greatest poem, “The Waste Land.”

For President Joe Biden, the cruelest month is surely August of 2021, which is now mercifully ending.

Amazing Vintage Photos of Houses Carved Inside Massive Tree Stumps in America From the Early 20th Century


 The giant size of the stump gives a good idea of the size of the old growth trees.

As the first waves of loggers swept over great portions of the Pacific Northwest’s old-growth forests in the second half of the nineteenth century, those men opened up the dark dense woodlands to settlement. And they surely left their mark on the land. Extracting massive logs that were skidded away by oxen or floated down rivers to sawmills, the best wood was highly prized. Left behind was a scarred landscape, scrap wood, and stumps. Many stumps. Huge stumps. Stumps that still stood a full 10 feet high but were undesirable as lumber because they tended to swell down toward their base, making the wood-grain uneven.

He invoked Dolly Parton and the memory of Elvis Presley, and groused, “Next thing, they’ll ban pink flamingos in front yards.”
Reed argued that this is yet another Lost Cause, lost “about the time [a man] lost the irretrievable right to take a leak off his own front porch” (a porch activity I forgot to mention). But, he wrote, “they have not yet taken [Southerners’] right to curse and defy.”

Local busybodies target the front porch.

In the small-town American South porch sitting was once a nearly universal pastime. As a place for sipping tea or Co’ Cola, smoking or dipping, telling stories, courting, and watching lightning bugs, the front porch was unsurpassed. Southern porches have been celebrated in song (“Swingin’” and “My Tennessee Mountain Home,” to name just two country music examples) and story (Zora Neale Hurston: “It was the time for sitting on porches beside the road. It was the time to hear things and talk.”). James Agee wrote about a porch in A Death in the Family (Samuel Barber set his words to music in “Knoxville: Summer of 1915”), and who can forget Faulkner’s Greek chorus of neighborhood men, sitting on the Bundrens’ porch in As I Lay Dying? A recent book on black Southern storytelling is fittingly titled The Power of the Porch.

Virginia’s Department of Education hosted a speaker who instructed teachers to exclude the role Muslim extremism played when teaching students about 9/11.

In a PowerPoint delivered by “Education Leadership scholar” Amaarah DeCuir, teachers were instructed to avoid using language that could pin the events of 9/11 on Muslim extremism. The lecturer pointed to the heightened anti-Muslim sentiment that allegedly ticks up around the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Flashback! Biden’s Betrayal Of The SEAL Team That Killed Bin Laden

Via Reborn

When he was the Vice President, he did the most STUPID, unthinkable thing for a man in his position. He revealed the names and the unit that killed Bin Laden;”On May 3 2011, at a national event in Washington, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. did the unthinkable, he publicly revealed the identity of the special-operations unit responsible for bin Laden’s killing, just to show that he “is in the know.”

His reckless action put at risk the lives of every member of Seal Team 6. The Taliban and other jihadists eager to avenge bin Laden now knew which unit to target. Stunned and shocked, Seal Team Six members immediately realized they were going to be hunted by al Qaeda sympathizers.

Soon after Biden’s reckless idiotic speech, an American CH47 Chinook was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade in the Tangi Valley, Maidan Wardak Province, Afghanistan, all 38 aboard were killed including most if not all of Seal Team Six, this incident became known as Extortion 17… After Biden had let the identification out, and before the Chinook was shot down, members of Seal Team 6 had called their families and told them to wipe out all connection to them, including social media, and disassociate themselves as far away from them as possible because they too would be in grave danger as the Taliban would attempt to find them in retaliation…and Biden, well he didn’t even drop a sweat over any of it, and the was just too stupid to realize what he had done.”

Treason: Afghanistan Disaster Is More Proof Biden Is Owned Lock, Stock and Barrel by China

The Biden crime family is owned lock, stock and barrel by China and the Chinese Communist Party. Biden's stolen presidency is the best thing to ever happen to China.

I don't need to remind all of you of what just happened in Afghanistan. Everyone saw it. The question is, can you believe your own eyes? How could this happen? This is the worst debacle in U.S. foreign policy history. And it threatens to become the worst catastrophic failure in U.S. military history. Why? Because it was all foreseeable and preventable.

What do a Cold War-era conspiracy theory, a modern-day political operation involving a hoax concerning domestic elections, and a global media influence campaign concerning the death of a Saudi operative have in common? They all rely on old school tried-and-true Soviet methods of disinformation, propaganda, and smear campaigning designed to attack character, ruin reputations, and change the course of history.


The Soviet Union’s most underrated accomplishment in the field of information warfare was its ability to wreak psychological havoc on entire populations by keeping conspiracy theories, dubious accusations, and assertions mixing a kernel of truth with a significant doze of fabrications and live and well in the public mind sometimes for years, if not decades to come. Inspired in part by the old adage “if it bleeds, it leads”, the Soviet became the masters of not only igniting the flame of scandals, but of keeping it burning long past the wick’s apparent length or ability to withstand the heat.

Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers’ Green.

Marching past, straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen.
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
Dismount at Fiddlers’ Green.

Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene.
No Trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he’s emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddlers’ Green.

And so when man and horse go down
Beneath a saber keen,
Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee
You stop a bullet clean,
And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
Just empty your canteen,
And put your pistol to your head
And go to Fiddlers’ Green.


The Boys are not lost.  They've gone to muster at Fiddler's Green, but they are not lost.  They are with us now, in our hearts, in our memories, in our stories, traditions, and still live on, in the lives they saved, and the lives they gave, with us. 

We'll see them all again, when the last 'Assembly' sounds; ringing notes echoing off the mountain they built; see them, in soldierly array, standing proud.

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn't return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

Almost as striking is the manner in which the mainstream press has shied from reporting the POW story and McCain's role in it, even as the Republican Party has made McCain's military service the focus of his presidential campaign. Reporters who had covered the Vietnam War turned their heads and walked in other directions. McCain doesn't talk about the missing men, and the press never asks him about them.

Tragically, the truth did not come out, thanks, the authors charge, to two of the Committee's most powerful members, Chairman John Kerry and ex-POW Sen. John McCain. Both, the authors explain, were intent on "ending the war" and normalizing relations with Vietnam. They chose to perpetuate the cover-up rather than expose it.

Why Joe Biden can't resign, or be removed — or die



In the wake of the Afghanistan debacle, demands have arisen in Congress for President Biden to resign or to be removed via the 25th Amendment.  Elements of the formerly pro-Biden media have joined in the condemnation.

Many silent Democrat office-holders likely want Biden out, as they fear that the systemic incompetence of his administration will bring them down come 2022.

But Joe cannot resign or be fired.  The Democrat high command will not let either happen, no matter the short-term political cost.

On the surface, that makes little sense.  Joe's resignation or removal would not alter Democrat control of the presidency and Congress.  If Joe leaves, Kamala Harris becomes president.  She is incompetent, too, but no more so than Joe, and is on board with the administration's radical agenda.

So.  Why can't Joe quit the office or be removed?

It wasn’t because of the piece of paper, that was the set of understandings. It was because the Taliban understood that if they acted against Americans and took on actions that were inconsistent with what they had promised to do, we’d respond and we did. We did it multiple times. When they pushed on us and the Trump administration, we responded with American power and American might, and we made clear to the Taliban that deterrence was going to be maintained. The difference was when the Biden administration came in, when the Taliban pushed, they withdrew. They showed weakness. The Taliban rolled it up. They put our military in an incredibly difficult position because they weren’t prepared to defend the conditions and then decided to withdraw when the conditions weren’t right.

The United States and allies urged Afghans to leave Kabul airport, citing the threat of terrorist attacks, as Western troops race to evacuate as many people as possible by August 31.

Namely, uniformed personnel and military retirees are prohibited from disrespecting senior government leadership (e.g. the President, Vice President, Congress, Secretary of Defense, Service Secretaries, etc.). Really? So what's my penalty.....?

Top leadership at the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) informed active duty and retired service members that they cannot condemn President Joe Biden amid the chaotic — and now deadly — pullout of American troops from Afghanistan.

Why Did President Thieu Killed General Hieu? (Have Hieu Killed)



This Homepage is dedicated to General Hieu of the Armed Forces of Viet Nam - an incorruptible, virtuous and competent General; with the hope that it would indirectly boost up the morale of all soldiers of the ARVN who had sacrificed their prime lives to the just cause of their beloved country.

After having his bodyguard gunned downed General Hieu, General Toan reported back to President Thieu that the mission of killing General Hieu that the President had ordered had been accomplished (see Shroud over General Hieu's Mysterious Death Unveiled). Why did Thieu give that order? A former ARVN Captain belonging to the 2nd Infantry Division addressed an implicated interrogation to Thieu on this issue during his appearance with the Vietnamese community in Orange County, California, on 6/16/1990.
