A Sham of Free Government


Editor’s Note: United States Senator Thomas F. Bayard delivered this speech in January, 1875 on the 60th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans. Bayard, later United States Secretary of State, considered the military occupation of New Orleans to be an unconstitutional usurpation of power and a direct assault on republican government. He denounced Gen. Philip Sheridan, insinuated that President Grant was as corrupt as the “sham” government that presided over the State, and called on the American public to physically resist these actions by the Republican Party.

Mr. President: I call for the reading of the resolution now before the Senate, and of the amendment of the Senator from New York.

The Chief Clerk. The resolution is as follows:

Resolved, That the President of the United States is hereby requested to inform the Senate whether any portion of the Army of the United States, or any officer or officers, soldier or soldiers of such Army, did in any manner interfere or’ intermeddle, with, control or seek to control, the organization of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana, or either branch thereof, on the 4th instant; and especially whether any person or persons claiming seats in either branch of said Legislature have been deprived thereof, or prevented front taking the same, by any such military force, officer, or soldier; and if such has been the ease, then that the President inform the Senate by what authority such military intervention and interference have taken place.

White People




  May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'Matt Walsh @MattWalshBlog I've been fascinated to learn that only white people have ancestors who did bad things. Slavery, conquest, rape, etc. Only white people. We're the only ones who have to apologize. No one else. Everyone else is descended from angels. Really mind blowing news.l had no idea.'

A-37 Dragonfly 


 For Skipperdaddy
  South Vietnamese Air Force A-1E (AD-5) Skyraider 

(I've mentioned before that the VNAF pilots were like kids with new playtoys when we sent them back up near the end, after the ***Skyraiders had been grounded because of money. They loved them. I caught a hop on a *Bird Dog from TSN to Bien Hoa once, and man, they could land and stop on a dime. Really impressive. They have an **A-37 Dragonfly on display at the War Museum in Saigon. They also had a Huey there and they would rent you a flak jacket and helmet, so you could get a picture taken behind the doorgun. Vietnamese Communists!

It was still called the Museum of American War Crimes in 1992 when I went there, so I wore my T-shirt with a picture of the Soldier's Statue in DC on it with the three soldiers, and the words "Vietnam, We Were Right Then, We Are Right Now, We Have Always Been Right" and a large American Flag on the back. Kerry's picture was indeed in there, though it was removed when he ran for President, I read.BT)

"We went by jeep to a nearby rice paddy where an *O-1 was stranded on a cart path with barely a foot clearance on either side of the landing gear," Youngblood recalls. "Dogood paced off the length of the path, put some gas from a tanker truck into the plane. Then he got in and in a cloud of dust flew the O-1 off the cart path." 

Escape to U Taphao
"In the final days of the Vietnam war, chaos and heroism converged in the effort to evacuate U.S.-supplied aircraft."

"The copilot’s wife had been leaning outside, helping load passengers at the front entryway. As the plane lurched forward, she fell. The left main gear rolled over her, crushing the woman. No one told the copilot until the aircraft landed in Thailand."

Biden Gang Reportedly Running Secret Lists Used to Prevent Outspoken Political Opponents from Owning Guns – Laura Loomer Speaks Out on This Injustice

 Via Billy

 I’m pleased to announce I will be working with Congressman Gosar on ANTI-RED FLAG legislation so the FBI & DOJ can no longer politically target Americans & strip them of their Second Amendment Rights!

Representative Paul Gosar accused Biden’s government of maintaining two secret lists that it uses to strip its enemies of their constitutional rights.  These enemies, like activist and congressional candidate Laura Loomer, are those Americans who love God, their country, and freedom.  

Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) released a letter this week he sent to Biden’s corrupt Attorney General Merrick Garland addressing the secret lists he has put in place illegally and unconstitutionally.

Comment on “Southern” Slavery

 American slavery: Separating fact from myth

 On “Southern” Slavery

Re: "The existence of slavery in the North has been whitewashed and sent down the memory hole.

Frankly, most of our American history as we learn it in school – especially in recent decades – is court history. It is a narrative. In the age of political correctness, our American history has been rewritten, often by Socialists and extreme leftists who have a Marxist (Economic or Cultural) agenda."

That's precisely true,and well-said. I am a historian and know whereof I speak, as I have been inside the belly of the beast, so to speak.

Slavery is a human institution, once found in all places and times and cultures; wherever humans were, there was bondage and slavery also. Yet, when one reads an academic text on it, of the kind used in many history departments to teach our young people, there is no mention of that - or scant mention of it. Instead, it is invariably a littany of sins specifically of European civilization and the United States, i.e., the West. They call it in leftist circles, "The Atlantic Slave Trade," meaning that their courses and books leave out anything that happened in most of Africa, the Middle East, Asia or the rest of the world.

These books and course also conveniently omit the fact that Muslims are the greatest slavers in history, meaning that they have taken (as captives), bought, sold and owned more slaves than anyone else in human history. Few westerners know it, but slavery was only outlawed in much of the Arab world starting only in the 1960s, and the last Islamic nations of Africa to render slavery a crime, Muritania, did so in the 21st century.

What is also left unsaid and untold is that two western nations, specifically the U.K. and the U.S., did the most to eradicate slavery in the Christian/non-Muslim world over the last two centuries.

Slavery is still common in the Islamic world, only now it is practiced more-discreetly and quietly so as not to offend or embarrass the Arab's oil business partners or the tourists coming to those new resorts in Dubai, UAE, or the like.

You are also quite correct that older texts are more-reliable and free of the crippling and ridiculous ideological cant now found in so many modern works. If you want to learn something new, read an old book!


The Final Take Off

The A-37 Dragonfly in Vietnam | Defense Media Network


Story by VNAF MA MN @2005

IN MEMORY OF Lieutenant NGUYEN MANH DUNG (VNAF's 516th Fighter Squadron)
1946 - April 30, 1975

In 1970, Lt. Nguyen was assigned to the 516th Fighter Squadron, 1st Air Division in Da Nang after completing flight training in the US. He was one of the last Vietnamese fighter pilots who flew the A-37B Dragonfly to fight courageously against the advancing North Vietnamese troops (NVAs) with T-54 tanks just before Saigon was overrun.

In 1972, his A-37B was shot down by anti-aircraft fire while he provided aerial fire support to ground units (the South VN Marines). However, he managed to bail out to safety, during the NVAs Easter Offensive.

On March 28, 1975, while Da Nang air base was in chaos, he was assigned to reinforce the 6th Air Division in Pleiku and later, in Phu Cat. This air base was evacuated thereafter.

In mid-April, 1975, Lt. Nguyen's new assignment was to regroup into the 526th Fighter Squadron, 4th Air Division in Binh Thuy, Can Tho. He continued to follow orders from his superiors, and as always, flew into the hottest battle zones, to destroy the NVAs.

In April 30, 1975, at about 09:30AM - 10:00AM, he took off in his A-37B fighter from Binh Thuy air base with First Lt. Dong on his right for their last mission: Destroy the enemy's T-54 tanks that were on the way to attack Hoang Hoa Tham camp and Bay Hien. As usual, Lt. Nguyen did this in tandem with his FAC, L.19 spotter plane, the Hoa Mi 93. This plane acted as an advance scout for Lt. Nguyen's plane, spotting targets for him to bomb. Piloted by Capt. Mai Tri Dung, and First Lt. Bien, 122 OS, the Hoa Mi 93 had taken off a short time earlier from Dong Tam airport in My Tho. This was one of the last heroic missions of the South VN Air Force, which was once the fourth largest air force in the world.

After landing at Binh Thuy air base, Lt. Nguyen and Second Lt. Dong were stunned by news that Saigon, the capital of South Vietnam had surrendered bitterly. By then, the streets of Saigon, Can Tho and all of the cities of SVN, were blanketed with chaotic masses of people, all trying to find a way to escape the advancing NVAs. Lt. Nguyen then decided to take off again for the last time, with his beloved friend, the A-37B Dragonfly.

On this final flight, he ascended into the sky with a fuel tank nearing empty. Nobody has known of his fate since.

Lt. Nguyen, together with many SVN soldiers, was chosen to take a stand and defend our beloved country to the death. He and many others could have left the country and fled to Thailand, Singapore, or the Philippines, like so many did in those final days. They did not. They went above and beyond the Duty, sacrificing their lives for our country.
