Red Dawn Has Broken

The Democrats’ RED DAWN: Yes, It’s A Communist Coup. But There Are Signs Of Hope

Remember John Milius’ 1984 classic movie, Red Dawn, in which Soviet and Cuban shock troops capture the town of Calumet CO? In one particularly compelling scene, the victorious occupiers execute Americans accused of conspiring with high school rebels who have been waging guerrilla warfare. But just before the Reds open fire, the condemned patriots start singing America the Beautiful.

I thought of that when reading Julie Kelly’s account of the January 6 Mostly Peaceful Protesters, still scandalously held in solitary confinement for their political opinions, singing the National Anthem every evening [January 6 Detainees Sing the National Anthem, July 18, 2021] Except this time, the enemy isn’t the Soviets: it’s Joe Biden and his—let’s face it—de facto Communist regime.

This is how the ‘Handsomest Man in the Luftwaffe’ lost his looks
 This is how the ‘Handsomest Man in the Luftwaffe’ lost his looks

With more than 900 missions under his belt, Johannes “Macky” Steinhoff was one of the most famous German fighter pilots during WWII and was reportedly known as the “Handsomest Man in the Luftwaffe.” Operating everywhere from the western to the eastern fronts, Steinhoff squared off with some of the world’s best pilots at the time and racked up 176 victories. But he was also shot down a dozen times. The German ace nearly rode his damaged plane all the way down to the ground every time because he didn’t trust that the parachutes would properly deploy if he jumped out.

The End of America?


Truth crushed to earth is truth still and like a seed will rise again.”

I have a good friend who continually asks me what I think are the prospects for sensible, conservative—that is, normal—folks in these parlous times, what I think will happen to these United States, and particularly, what will happen to the South.

In response to his questioning, I can’t give a satisfactory answer, at least one nicely tied-up and tidy like my friend wants. But one thing on which my friend and I agree: this weary and gravely ailing country we call the United States seems with accelerating velocity and intensity to be hurtling into some form of ignominious and painful expiration. The unbridgeable differences, the divisions, between segments of our population are now far too stark, far too bitter, far too advanced to be papered over by “the next election”—or, by the pipe-dreams that I hear some Republicans and Fox News pundits exude with enthusiasm: “We’ll win back Congress in 2022! And then things will get right again.”

Cuba Should Be Free: Briefing and Personal Notes on Cuba


 Cuban National Flag 1478

Between 1953 and 1957, when I was attending College Park High School near Atlanta, my father was a Flight Superintendent for Delta Airlines and made regular trips to Havana and Caracas to make sure everything needed for operating flights and supporting flight crews was running smoothly. When in Havana, he usually stayed where the Delta flight crews stayed, at the large and luxurious hotels of Havana. He often brought back postcards and photos. They made a strong impression on me as the ultimate enjoyment of beauty and prosperity. That beauty and prosperity would soon crumble under Communist mismanagement and cruel tyrannies.

Some of my church friends attended nearby Georgia Military Academy (GMA), where many *Cuban boys from wealthy families lived on campus. I saw them almost every Saturday, when we rode the bus to Atlanta for movies, lunch, shopping, and sightseeing. It was safe to do back then. I often wonder now how many of them survived Castro’s revolution starting in January 1959.

*We also had them at Greenbrier my military school and some went back to fight Castro and two were killed, as I remember.

Lower 1/3 Co-Witness Sights

 lower 1/3 co-witness sights

When aiming down the sights of your firearm, are you more comfortable with optics, or iron sights? What if you could engage both? That’s the basic philosophy behind co-witnessed sights. Lower 1/3 co-witness sights take the idea one step further. Many experienced shooters looking for versatility and flexibility utilize co-witness sights. It combines both iron sights and red dot or other mounted optics. The idea is to maximize accuracy across a variety of ranges and environments. Let’s take a closer look at what co-witness sights are and explore how lower 1/3 co-witness sights work. By the end, you’ll be able to determine which variety of co-witness sights are a good choice for your firearm set up.
