Would be Today’s War Criminal, as time goes by.

2LT Audie L. Murphy, USA

Audie Leon Murphy, son of poor Texas sharecroppers, rose to national fame as the most decorated U.S. combat soldier of World War II. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest military award for bravery given to any individual by the United States for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.” He also received every decoration for valor that America had to offer, some of them more than once. He was awarded five decorations by France and Belgium.

Audi Murphy became a legend within the 3rd Infantry Division and quickly rose from Army Private to the rank of Staff Sergeant, and was then given a “battle field” commission as 2nd Lieutenant. He was wounded three times, fighting in nine major campaigns across the European Theater, and survived the war. (Audi Murphy Medal of Honor Citation)

Today in Washington DC, as an ungrateful nation bids “Good Riddance” to President George W. Bush**, the people’s representatives in Congress, under leadership of Nancy Pelosi, are making plans to bring charges of “War Crimes” against Americans who today should be awarded “Medals of Honor.” President Bush, his administration, those serving in the Department of Defense and the CIA are all under threat of prosecution for their dedication to keeping the American homeland safe since September the 11th, 2001. Yes, it is unbelievable, but it is the way things are, as time goes by and citizens forget about war and the blood, sweat and tears of those who have sacrificed to keep them safe.

Audie Murphy is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, just across Memorial Drive from the Memorial Amphitheater. It would be interesting to know how many of the millions of people celebrating the Inauguration in Washington today will make the effort to walk across the Memorial Bridge in front of the Lincoln Memorial to pay respects to a now forgotten “real” American hero.

**Today, at the Inauguration of Barack Obama, those most elite of the attendees, occupying spaces closest to the festivities, booed not only President Bush and Vice President Cheney, but the celebrants of Obama’s Inauguration booed First Lady Laura Bush, and Mrs. Cheney.

An Ungrateful Nation

January 15, 2009

President George W. Bush bids farewell. An ungrateful nation responds “Good Riddance!”

“Oh, and please DO let the door hit you in the fanny on your way out.” You, Mr. President, have kept our fannies safe from harm for the past seven years, and to show our ingratitude we are about to haul your fanny to the World Court and charge you and your administration with War Crimes. MSNBC, Keith Olbermann, and Olbermann’s lackey lawman, Jonathan Turley, have been gleefully describing their plans for vengeance against you, your Vice President and all those government functionaries working for you who have spent the past eight years following that most anachronistic of all “Documents of Freedom,” the United States Constitution.

“Barack Obama has said that it (water-boarding) is torture and torture is a war crime, then the President has committed a war crime, if he did order water-boarding.” ~Jonathan Turley on MSNBC Countdown Show, where he states that President Bush himself admitted that he ordered water-boarding.

As President Bush bids a fond farewell to his beloved nation, ungrateful Americans have him in the cross-hairs for prosecution as a War Criminal. Nothing could warm the cockles of some American hearts more than the sight of a Republican former President rotting in some hellhole of a prison, along with high ranking members of his military, and employees of both the Department of Defense and CIA.

“When we’re talking about talented people at the CIA, in this context, we’re talking about ‘talented torturers.'”~Jonathan Turley, on MSNBC Countdown.

That prosecution called for by MSNBC, Turley and Olbemann would be President Bush’s just rewards for doing his job to keep his nation safe from harm. This is the real war that Democrats and the mainstream media have been wanting to fight; the war against George W. Bush. And they are calling upon President Barack Obama to do his duty and begin the War Crime Trials against his predecessor, whilst America’s media gush over the “smooth transition of power” that is American democracy.

Seven Years of Calm

December 10, 2008

No Terrorists Attacks In the United States! Why?

  • On October 12, 2002, in Bali, Indonesia, Al-Qaeda’s Jemaah Islamiyah terrorists targeted packed nightspots, killing 202 people, including more than 160 foreigners. There are even more nightclubs in the United States, why didn’t al-Qaeda target us here?
  • On March 11, 2004, in Madrid, Spain, 191 people were killed and more than 1,800 injured in a series of explosions on four trains. al-Qaeda took responsibility for that accomplishment to avenge the presence of Spanish troops in Iraq. But why didn’t the terrorists bomb American trains on American soil? We had even more troops in Iraq than did the Spanish.
  • On the morning of Wednesday September 1, 2004, in Beslan, Russia, Muslim terrorists and Arab mercenaries wearing explosive belts stormed a school taking 1,200 parents, students, children, and infants hostage. They wired a room with explosives and threatened to blow up the school during a three-day standoff. The children were refused food and water and were held in stifling heat in a gymnasium while the world waited. As Russian forces were collecting corpses from the initial raid outside the school, the militants in the school triggered the explosives inside the school. As the surviving hostages attempted to flee, the terrorists shot them and their rescuers in their backs. At least 326 people — 156 of them children — were murdered at that school and more than 700 wounded. Although 26 of the terrorists were killed, several escaped. Why did not these terrorists take over an American school on American soil? We have lots of schools here.
  • On July 11, 2006, in Mumbai, India, seven high-powered blasts on suburban trains killed more than 200 commuters and injured at least 800. America has commuter trains too, why did not al-Qaeda target American trains with bombs?
  • On November 26 of this year, again in Mumbai, India, Islamist gunmen launched attacks against luxury hotels. Gunmen from al-Qaeda’s Deccan Mujahedeen group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which killed more than 100. A rabbi, Gavriel Hertzberg, and his pregnant wife were sought out and murdered as were other Jews and Americans. America has many luxury hotels, many Jews and many, many more Americans. Why did al-Qaeda spare hotels and tourists in America’s homeland?

Could these “Seven Years of Calm in America” have had anything to do with the leadership of America’s Commander in Chief, George W. Bush, his administration and the fighting men and women of his military?


Victory in Iraq Day

November 22, 2008

We won. The Iraq War is over. We hereby declare 22 November 2008 to be “Victory in Iraq Day,” or “VI Day.”

By every measure, The United States and coalition forces have conclusively defeated all enemies in Iraq, pacified the country, deposed the previous regime, successfully helped to establish a new functioning democratic government, and suppressed any lingering insurgencies. The war has come to an end. And we won.

What more indication do you need? An announcement from the outgoing Bush administration? It’s not gonna happen. An announcement from the incoming Obama administration? That’s really not gonna happen. A declaration of victory by the media? Please. Don’t make me laugh. A concession of surrender by what few remaining insurgents remain in hiding? Forget about it.

The moment has come to acknowledge the obvious. To overtly declare a fact that has already been true for quite some time now. Let us repeat: THE WAR IS OVER – WE WON!

“Ingratitude is monstrous, and for the multitude to be ingrateful were to make a monster of the multitude.” ~~William Shakespeare (1564–1616), 3rd Citizen, in Coriolanus, act 2, sc. 3, l. 9-11. He was arguing that the people should be grateful to Caius Marcius for defeating the Volsces.

Veterans of Yesteryear

November 17, 2008
American Boarding Party of 1944

Virginian Veterans of Yesteryear:

“I saw the swastika come down and the Stars and Stripes go up” ~~A World War Two POW from Virginia, from “Virginians at War.”

On The Virginia War Memorial in Richmond, Virginia, there are 11,600 names of Virginians who have lost their lives fighting for their nation, the United States of America.

Virginian Veterans of Today:

Today, almost one million (800,000) veterans live in Virginia. In November of 2008, almost 54% of Virginia’s voters rejected a veteran and former POW for President of the United States, and elected a man with little experience and absolutely no military experience, a man who described the flag pin that his fellow countrymen were wearing as “a substitute for … true patriotism,” and added “I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest.” He is a man who does not salute the flag in public, who never supported the War in Iraq and wants to end it before victory, and who believes in “spreading the wealth around.”  It makes one wonder about those Virginia soldiers of yesteryear who bled and died for America, as they now watch from their Heavenly Homes as their descendants turn radically left to embrace the old political ideologies that they had fought against. According to Virginia’s U.S. Congressional Representative, James Moran, Virginia Has Gone Communist.

An Obama Nation Hero

November 15, 2008

”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough. ~~The New York Times

Before the Obama Nation officially begins we have Hero Number One, family friend of President Elect Barack Obama, William “Billy” Ayers, being celebrated on Good Morning America. Old America considered William Ayers of the Weatherman Underground as a terrorist, but today, in the soon to be Obama Nation, the word “terrorist” has a new meaning. In the updated afterword to his 2001 memoir, “Fugitive Days,” it was the celebrated Weatherman terrorist turned college professor himself who described the Barack Obamas as “family friends,” according to The Boston Herald newspaper.

The Video of America’s New Hero

Terrorists are now those American soldiers sent off to war to fight communism during the Viet Nam War era. They were terrorists because they actually targeted communists with their bombs. Billy Ayers and the other good guys of the Weatherman Underground were Saints as they were trying to bomb the real terrorists, the American government and American soldiers who were trying to stop communists. William Ayers and his group were not trying to kill anyone, just bomb them. The fact that people actually died from Billy Ayers’ friends’ bombs, such as these American policemen, was unintentional, hence Barack Obama’s family friend, Bill Ayers, is not a terrorist.

“Terrorists terrorize, they kill innocent civilians, while we organized and agitated. Terrorists destroy randomly, while our actions bore, we hoped, the precise stamp of a cut diamond. Terrorists intimidate, while we aimed only to educate.” ~~Bill Ayers in his book “Fugitive Days,” according to Allahpundit at Hot Air

Billy Ayers is not a terrorist because he has been entrusted with the teaching and indoctrination of the children of America. Advice to young people from Ayers: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.” Bill Ayers is not a terrorist as he is a celebrated hero of America’s mainstream media. Bill Ayers is not a terrorist because he is a friend of Barack Obama, and anyone connected to Obama is next to God.

Obama Nation Morality – When you disagree with a group in America, bomb the hell out of them, just don’t target any civilians. You will be rewarded with a college professorship, people will buy your books as you taut your righteousness, and America will celebrate your dedication and service to your cause.

Fact Checker to Obama Nation – What about bombing Abortion Clinics? Is that now a good thing? After all, those bombers were not targeting any civilians. They were in fact trying to save the lives of innocents from being aborted. Are Abortion Clinic bombers now heroes in the new Obama Nation? Will the Obama Nation’s logic in redefining “TERRORISM” and “TERRORIST” apply also to America’s other terrorists?

Bill Ayers, Weather Underground Achievement of 1981 – Murdered New York Policemen (Barack Obama could have known nothing of this accomplishment as Obama was only 20 years old at the time, as he reminds us.)

Sergeant Edward O’Grady and Officer Waverly Brown were shot and killed by heavily armed members of a domestic terrorist group, the Weather Underground, who had just robbed a bank and were attempting to escape. The suspects had just murdered an armored car guard and wounded two other guards before loading themselves into the back of a rental truck to be driven away by accomplices. The truck was stopped at a roadblock manned by several Nyack officers.

Sergeant O’Grady was a Vietnam War veteran. He was survived by his wife and three children.

The Weather Underground was also connected to the Black Liberation Army, which was responsible for the murders of at least one dozen other police officers throughout the country. The Weather Underground is believed responsible for the unsolved bombing murder of San Francisco, California, Police Department Sergeant Brian McDonnell on February 16, 1970.

The Black Liberation Army was a violent, radical group that attempted to fight for independence from the United States government in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The BLA was responsible for the murders of more than 10 police officers around the country. They were also responsible for violent attacks around the country that left many police officers wounded.

Terrorizing the Terrorist


America Needs John McCain

November 2, 2008

Only John McCain stands between the traditional American values of hard work and self-sufficiency, and the radical liberalism of spreading the wealth by redistribution espoused by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank. Only John McCain can stand up to the evil-doers who would kill us and destroy our American way of life. Only John McCain will win the War on Terror and fight to save Israel and the entire Middle East from being overrun by the Taliban and Islamofascists. All of our hopes for America and the Free World rest upon the success of the man who long ago catapulted from an aircraft carrier to fly into harm’s way and fight for America against the scourge of Communism. We need John McCain to continue to fight for America and keep America free. We need John McCain to win this election.

Reasons to Vote for McCain


Support the Troops – Vote McCain

October 31, 2008

A Veteran of the Iraq War has a personal message for Barack Obama: “Freedom is NOT Free.”

The Cavalry has arrived for McCain. There is “The Terminator” – Governor of California. There are Joe the  Plumber and Tito the Builder. And there is the Iraq War veteran.  Fly your flags this weekend until Election Day for John McCain. Flag wavers overwhelmingly support McCain. Those who refuse to display the flag are overwhelmingly for Obama. So are those who display the Red Star of Socialism.


I Have to Vote for Barack!

October 13, 2008

“A light will shine down from somewhere. You will have a light upon you. You will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, ‘I have to vote for Barack'”.‘” ~~Barack Obama

“I have to vote for Barack” because Minister Louis Farrakhan has proclaimed that he is the Messiah. You too must vote for Barack – the Obamessiah! Then and only then will the American people live and work together in harmony in a society based on equality where the fruits of the labor of those who are able to work will be shared with all members of our society and no one will be exploited by greedy capitalists. Today Barack Obama promised a participant at his rally, that as President, he will spread the wealth around, as in redistribution. With wealth redistribution, no one needs to bust his butt working, as the Obama administration promises to send a check in the mail every January to make everyone equal with his neighbors on the wealthy side of the tracks.

Barack Obama and his supporters have great plans to end all exploitation of American workers by their employers. He has promised to stop American imperialism, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan, by ending the wars there. He will continue working closely with his political action committee A.C.O.R.N. to bring all people into political power by guaranteeing everyone, citizens and non-citizens alike, convicted felons and those awaiting convicton, even the dead, the right to vote, as often as possible. Barack Obama will bring America into a single unified global community with the rest of the world’s people, a global democratic society with equal rights for all. There will be NO new wars as long as Obama is President, as there we be NO America to defend. All the resources that we now spend funding our military machine will go for the good of the people, instead of for killing people. Under President Obama, we will have an Utopia where the rich nations will share all their wealth with everyone, resulting in the elimination of the great immoral gulf between the rich and the poor of the world, the workers and the drones. After President Obama accomplishes his radical CHANGE, what was once America will be only a part of a one world government, the Socialist Union of Nations of Obama.

It will be just like the promised “Second Coming,” of our Lord, as after all, Obama is the Messiah.

“We are the ONES we’ve been waiting for. … I have become a symbol of America returning to our best traditions.” ~~Barack Obama


Vote Obama – No More War!

September 22, 2008

Gut the Military! Quick – Quick, Before We Fight Again!

As President” you’re going to end the war? Well, isn’t that what all of you Democrat members of Congress promised two years ago when you were elected to a majority? Where’s the end of the war you promised then?
