VIETNAM was on the horizon . . . I remember basic training at Fort Jackson, SC. Our guys standing in front of sinks about 10 or 12 across, all with towels wrapped around our waists… shave creme on our faces . . . razors in hand . . . . . All of us “brothers” . . . Black, White, Brown, Yellow…..listening to this and dancing…side step right….side step left . . . dip . . . spin . . . Would have made a helluva scene in a war movie . . . ~ Jim Walburn, You Tube Continue reading →
The diseases that the INVADING ILLEGALS are bringing to America will not be healed by todays Big PHARMA anti-biotics due to the overuse of them creating superbugs that their anti-biotics can’t touch. Those of us who refused to take the Big PHARMA anti-biotics and use Colloidal Silver as our anti-biotic – those of us who eat and drink according to the pH Alkaline diet do not get sick because the viruses and bacteria cannot survive in an alkaline system.
Sadly, most Americans eat and drink acidic garbage which the viruses and bacteria thrive in. ~ Jackie Juntti
Dr. Drew Pinsky, a California-based physician who now hosts a talk radio show, correctly predicted the current typhus outbreak in Los Angeles about 18 months ago. Now he is sounding the alarm about a potential outbreak of the bubonic plague in the Los Angeles area, saying that unless conditions change quickly and drastically, Southern California will be dealing with a horrific epidemic.

Up until a year ago, Federal Observer had a category named, Sunset Boulevard, which was used for columns dealing with film, or the lessons which film taught us on life. The following is the first post in this year that I felt was worth publishing – for numerous reasons – the historical accuracy that was depicted. Right or wrong, Left or Right, North or South…. this is not what matters here. The lessons here belong to Mr. Adair. ~ Ed.
On Sunday and on July 24, Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events are presenting big-screen showings in theaters nationwide of “Glory,” in honor of the 30-year anniversary of its release. The greatest movie ever made about the American Civil War, “Glory” was the first and, with the exception of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” the only film that eschewed romanticism to reveal what the war was really about.
The story is told through the eyes of one of the first regiments of African American soldiers. Almost from the time the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, S.C., the issue of black soldiers in the Union army was hotly debated. On Jan. 1, 1863, as the country faced the third year of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, rapidly accelerating the process of putting black men into federal blue.

I find it interesting how the placement of a few simple letters, or words, before a person’s name bestows the semblance of authority and wisdom. Take for instance how if you put the letters PhD before someone’s name you automatically assume they are an expert on a subject and you should just accept that what they say is the truth.
The same principle applies towards people in positions of authority within our government, such Supreme Court Justices; their decisions are believed to be the final word as to what is and what isn’t constitutional. It almost seems like those in positions of authority look down upon us common folk, believing us to be incapable of critical thought – which sadly is true in most cases.
That said, not everyone in this country can be lumped into the category of Ignoramus Americanus; some are highly intelligent and knowledgeable. Although it is rare, it is not unknown to meet people who make it their life’s mission to seek out and acquire knowledge and truth. Yet it seems that just because we don’t have a diploma from an institution of higher learning, (indoctrination is more likely the case), our opinions are not as valid as someone having the letters PhD preceding their names.

Older men, such as myself, surely must sit in amazement and incredulous dismay at the direction the “Women’s Liberation” movement has taken America, since the 1970s, as it is currently and regularly stated in many sectors of society, that men’s energy and sexuality must be “harnessed and directed”, while at the same time men and their masculinity are attacked, as something “toxic”. Women in all settings, especially the nuclear family, used to be the harnessing factor, but now, it seems they spew a hatred of men better than anything of socially redeeming worth.

Democrats Unanimous As House Passes Bill Forcing Schools To Let Male Athletes Compete In Girls’ Sports
The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams. Eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which had unanimous Democratic support.
The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, that would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls… (Continue to full article)
Associated Press Whitewashes Ted Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick Crime
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Former Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy is dead and gone but the Associated Press is still carrying water for the Kennedy clan 50 years later by whitewashing the tragic death of Mary Jo Kopechne in Chappaquiddick.
Thursday marked a half-century since the night that the married Sen. Kennedy drove home drunk from a party shortly after midnight in Cape Cod with the 28-year-old Kopechne in his passenger seat. While driving over a bridge, the drunken 37-year-old crashed his car into the stream below. He was able to make it to shore from the shallow water. It is unclear if Ted Kennedy made any attempt whatsoever to dive back in and free Kopechne who was still trapped in the car, but it is clear that he did not call the police nor did he stop for help…
Oh Goodie, We Have Local Newspapers Advising Illegals On How to Avoid ICE Too
Well, we knew this was going to happen. The Washington Post received detailed plans of the nationwide raids on illegals by Immigration and Customs
Enforcement. This leak caused a slight delay, with President Trump even hoping that some resolution could be hashed out in congress.
Yeah, that was never going to happen. Last week, illegals were rounded up, as they should, but Democrats and their allies in the media have started to offer ‘how to avoid ICE’ tutorials to those who shouldn’t be here. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have offered such advice in the wake of this law enforcement action. And now, we have the Charlotte Observer is printing such advice for illegals…… (Continue to full article)
Kamala Harris Is Canceled: Plea Deal For Gropy San Diego Mayor Slammed As Too Lenient
Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign biography rests heavily on her career as a prosecutor, including six years as California attorney general. But it omits a plea deal her office negotiated for former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, a serial sexual harasser, which let him escape jail time and avoid registering as a sex offender. Kamala certainly seems to continue to involve herself with Mayors… (Continue to full article)
‘America’ and ‘American’ Listed Among Words to Avoid at Colorado State University
CSU lists both “American” and “America” as non-inclusive words “to avoid,” due to the fact that America encompasses more than just the U.S. By referring to the U.S. as America, the guide claims that one “erases other cultures and depicts the United States as the dominant American country.” The school suggests using “U.S. citizen” or “person from the U.S.” as substitutes… (Continue to full article)
The city of Berkeley, long a bastion of liberal ideas, voted this week to purge gender from its law books. Manhole will be replaced with maintenance hole. Sisters and brothers will be replaced with siblings. And he or she will be banished in favor of they, even if referring to one person.
What happens in California has often made its way across the country, whether it was banning smoking in restaurants, enacting strict tailpipe emission standards or allowing right turns at red lights. The City Council’s unanimous decision was meant to send a message about equal chances and representation, said Councilmember Lori Droste. What a bunch of ASS-HOLES… (Continue to full article)
Ilhan Omar Stonewalling Hometown Paper On Marriage Controversy
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been uncooperative with her hometown paper’s efforts to get to the bottom of accusations that she committed marriage fraud, the paper’s political editor said.
Omar’s brief congressional career has been dogged by accusations — which she has denied — that she married a male relative, possibly her brother. Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi. Public records indicate that Omar was living with Hirsi throughout her marriage to Elmi… (Continue to full article)

Muslim Caucus: We’ll “Build Our Power” & “Unite As One Constituency Across America”
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” and, “The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” -then chairman of the designated terror group Council on American-Islamic Relations Omar M. Ahmad
More and more, the Muslims in the US are rising up and seeking public office, influence on our children and issuing demands in the public square. Considering that they don’t normally do this in a country until there is a much higher percentage of them, it indicates how tolerant Americans have been of false gods and those who promote them.
In an email message on Tuesday, the Muslim Caucus invited those interested to join Tlaib; Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim Democrat from Minnesota; Keith Ellison, a Muslim former congressman from Minnesota; and others “to develop a clear roadmap for implementing national organizing structure and policy agenda that centers and organizes Muslim American… (Continue to full article)
The Selfish Actors of Illegal Immigration
Many people benefit from the lawbreaking: The Mexican and Central American governments, the Democratic party, employers, ethnic activists, rich progressives, and the illegal border crossers themselves.
Almost every party invested in open borders proves utterly selfish, without regard for the legitimate interests of others or of the law itself…. (Continue to full article)
‘Names Coming Out Soon’: Epstein’s Friends Prepare For Worst as Document Dump Imminent
The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will release of approximately 2,000 pages of documents, likely over the next few days, which may reveal sex crimes committed by “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders,” according to the court’s three-judge panel.
As the Jeffrey Epstein case continues to unfold, a laundry list of celebrities, business magnates and socialites who have flown anywhere near the registered sex offender’s orbit are now tainted with pedo-polonium. Many of them, such as Bill Clinton, Ehud Barak, and Victoria’s Secret boss Les Wexner have sought to distance themselves from Epstein and his activities – however their attempts have fallen on deaf ears considering their extensive ties to the convicted child sex offender… (Continue to full article)

In 1932 and 1933, millions died across the Soviet Union – and the foreign press corps helped cover up the catastrophe.
LVIV, UKRAINE: Shadows of people burying dozens of coffins in a mass grave are seen on November 25th, 2006 during a day of remembrance for up to 10 million people who starved to death in the great famine of 1932-33, in the city of Zhovkva. SERGEI SUPINSKY / GETTY
In the years 1932 and 1933, a catastrophic famine swept across the Soviet Union. It began in the chaos of collectivization, when millions of peasants were forced off their land and made to join state farms. It was then exacerbated, in the autumn of 1932, when the Soviet Politburo, the elite leadership of the Soviet Communist Party, took a series of decisions that deepened the famine in the Ukrainian countryside. Despite the shortages, the state demanded not just grain, but all available food. Continue reading →
Today in America, there isn’t any other issue more dangerous to all Americans and poised to completely ruin America and tear Her asunder than the necessity of stopping the anti-American, communist inspired globalist and Democratic Party initiatives and policies, that advocate and facilitate Open Borders, free healthcare, voting rights and U.S. citizenship for ILLEGAL Aliens. America is either a nation of laws and the rule of law or it isn’t. America and Her people either stop this madness or Americans will watch as we lose our culture and our American heritage, and indeed, America as She has stood for over 200 years. Continue reading →
Even though the events surrounding the Duggars has become really old news, I have a question for you all..
And no, it has nothing to do with if I think Josh is still responsible for his actions as a teen? Or if I think the Duggars handled the situation correctly? The Duggars trials were a messy and heartbreaking situation that left me speechless. Sexual abuse is evil, it ruins families and it destroys people.
What I want to know is this…
What is going on in YOUR home? Is sexual abuse happening at YOUR church or school? At YOUR playground? Continue reading →
“Politically Correct” language is really Orwellian Newspeak.
Human beings think with words. We express our thoughts with words.
What truly differentiates humans from all other creatures is our ability to use language and preserve our thoughts in writing, thereby enabling us to pass down our knowledge from one generation to the next. This is why the study of history is so important, but it is not only history that is passed from generation to generation but knowledge in general. Continue reading →
A new analysis of government data from the Center for Immigration Studies shows that immigration between 1990 and 2017 added nearly 43 million people to the population — including both immigrants and their progeny. However, it had a minimal impact on the share of the population that is of working age. Continue reading →
Fifty years ago today, I was home on leave from my first tour of the Garden of Eden – Viet Nam and was staying with my Aunt Muffin and her then husband Chuck in North Hollywood, California. What you are about to watch is what I watched that day, as many millions of us did. ~ Ed.
Fifty years ago today, Apollo 11 was launched by a Saturn V rocket, carrying Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, the first humans to step foot on the Moon. Apollo 11 launched at 13:32 UTC on July 16, 1969. Armstrong set foot on the Moon on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC. Continue reading →
Traitors to America, one and all, the perpetrators of the Russian collusion hoax are dancing in a pool of gasoline, highlighted by the past two years of Democrat and RINO subversion of every branch of the U.S. government to effect a coup against a duly elected president. This plot required high officials of the CIA, FBI, and Obama’s Department of Justice to commit felonies, and most of America knows who committed them. And, in the certain knowledge that Special Counsel Robert Mueller set out from the start to frame President Trump with either collusion or obstruction, battle lines are being drawn ahead of Mueller’s July 24th testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees.
Nothing could reveal the sham investigation Mueller pursued more than his team that was filled with obvious Clinton insiders such as Andrew Weissman, an attendee at Hillary’s aborted “victory party” on election night 2016, who just happened to run the DOJ’s Fraud Section for Obama during Hillary Clinton’s “Uranium One Scandal, at the same time Mueller was FBI Director and Uranium One was being investigated by Rod Rosenstein. Jeannie Rhee, a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation, and several other former Obama era DOJ staffers were also assisting Mueller’s attack on President Trump. Continue reading →

Senator Kamala Devi Harris (D-California) cannot become president unless she is a “natural born Citizen.” The U.S. Constitution contains few eligibility criteria for our nation’s highest post. But being born to the country is one of them. Since a vice president must be able to succeed to the presidency, Harris could not run as vice president, either.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 requires that only a natural born citizen can serve as president. The Constitution clearly distinguishes between a citizen and a “natural born Citizen.” There is a special case of citizen who is also natural born. An interesting but often-ignored requirement is that one must also have “been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.” Continue reading →
Child grooming and resulting abduction by pedophiles is not a topic I ever thought I’d have on my blog, but it is so important for parents to know about, I felt I must. When I emailed Mr. Prince to ask permission, he kindly wrote back, “Yes, please do. I figure I can’t be the only naive Dad in the world. I changed the names in the story to protect my daughter. She’s getting happier by the day. She had a friend over yesterday, and their laughter was so lovely to hear.” What a loving father and brave man!
Editor’s NOTE:The past is prologue. The stories we tell about ourselves and our forebears inform the sort of country we think we are and help determine public policy. As our current president promises to “make America great again,” this moment is an appropriate time to reconsider our past, look back at various eras of United States history and re-evaluate America’s origins. When, exactly, were we “great”? ~ Editor, TruthDig
U.S. Marines move against the enemy in Vietnam in 1968. (U.S. Marine Corps)
It is the war that never dies. Vietnam, the very word shrouded with extraordinary meaning in the American lexicon. For some it represents failure; for others guilt; for still more, anger that the war could have and should have been won. Americans are still arguing about this war, once the nation’s longest. For those who lived through it—the last war the U.S. fought partly with draftees—it was almost impossible not to take sides; to be pro-war or anti-war became a social and political identity unto itself. This tribal split even reached into the ranks of military veterans, as some joined antiwar movements and others remained vociferously sure that the war needed to be fought through to victory. Indeed, today, even the active-duty U.S. military officer corps is rent over assessment of the Vietnam legacy. Continue reading →
