The Confederacy of American Aristocracy.

March 14, 2019

Are you beginning to grasp the totality of the great American college admissions corruption?

America was founded by some of the smartest people who ever lived including Benjamin Franklin. None of them liked the British system of titled nobility and prohibited it in the United States.

Franklin once said, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”

Almost all of English literature and much of the news in America concerns people who never have to worry about money at all.

Americans love to watch or read about emotional crises among people who live in a world of great fortune both in matters of luck and money; stories and fantasies about rock stars and film stars, sporting millionaires and models; jet-setting members of the aristocracy and international financiers, corrupt politicians and news media celebrities.

Many of these people, who wield great power and influence, are dumber than a rock in spite of their degrees from prestigious universities.

We now know they buy university degrees like ranchers buy and sell cattle.

A starving kid, who steals an apple, is more likely to go to prison than an aristocrat who purloins a billion dollars.

The American nobility can pay people to write their books and pay to get them on the New York Times Bestseller list.

For some inexplicable reason, Americans will vote for nobility over intellect and proven service.

Here’s what I’m taking about. A man graduated first in his class at the Naval Academy and became an officer in the Marine Corps.

He served as a platoon commander in Vietnam and was awarded the Navy Cross for heroism, the second highest decoration in the Navy and Marine Corps. He was also awarded the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and two Purple Hearts.

He then served as a United States Senator from Virginia, Secretary of the Navy, Assistant Secretary of Defense and Counsel for the United States House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.

In 2016, Jim Webb ran for President of the United States and never made it to first base in the Democrat race.

On March 4, 2016, Webb stated that he would not vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, but he declined to rule out voting for Donald Trump.

When I look at most politicians like Governor Cuomo of New York, Governor Newsom of California and Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas along with the leaders of Congress, I wonder who is dumber, the politicians or the people who vote them in office.

I guess people prefer an America of smoke and mirrors instead of facing reality?  Maybe P.T. Barnum was right when he said, “There’s a sucker born every minute?”

Matthew wrote this in Chapter 25:
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'”

When will you be able to separate the sheep from the goats?

The Sad End of the Orient Express

March 7, 2019

On December 12, 2009, EuroNight train number 469 Orient Express left Strasbourg on its final overnight run to Vienna, and on 13 December the celebrated name Orient Express disappeared forever from the official European timetables after 126 years. That train was the true descendant of that first 1883 Express d’Orient and it officially carried the name Orient Express. You can trace its evolution from timetable to timetable, year to year from 1883 to 2009. On its last run, the Orient Express had evolved into an Austrian Railways EuroNight train, with one Austrian Railways air-conditioned sleeping-car, two modern air-conditioned couchette cars with 4 & 6 berth compartments, and an Austrian seats car.

The Orient Express was cut back to start in Strasbourg rather than Paris in June 2007 when the Paris-Strasbourg high-speed TGV line opened, so that it could no longer be attached to a French domestic train between Paris & Strasbourg. Although a TGV connection from Paris was provided, the writing was on the wall for this train when it stopped directly linking the French and Austrian capitals. It had lost its Paris-Budapest Hungarian couchette car and Paris-Bucharest Romanian sleeping-car in June 2001, and it hadn’t carried any through cars for Istanbul since the 1960s.

The Islamic Takeover of Europe is Assured and in FULL SWING in America!

February 17, 2019

The takeover of the Middle East took hundreds of years. Muslims are in no hurry as long as they see fundamental change.

Britain’s policy of mass immigration has brought what one expert calls “demographic upheaval” to the United Kingdom that could change almost everything.

It’s now a demographic certainty. Someday the white native English will be a minority in their own country, including the native Welsh and the Scots.

It’s just a matter of when.

Professor David Coleman is a supernumerary fellow in human sciences and university professor in demography at Oxford. He has written that uncontrolled immigration could lead to “finis Britanniae.”

“Which simply means the end of Britain, and by that, I mean the end of Britain as we know it,” Coleman said.

“The point I was making is the change in the number of people and particularly the change in the origins of people, in their religion, in their cultural background, would make Britain unrecognizable compared with the present time,” he said.

Immigration can strengthen a nation. But several western nations, including the United States, are debating the wisdom of large-scale immigration from the Islamic world. And experts wonder what will happen as Muslim numbers continue to grow in officially Christian Britain.

In the dystopian masterpiece Children of Men, ethnic division and civil war wracks Britain in 2027. Armed Muslim gangs fight a government that is hunting down and deporting immigrants while trying to maintain order.

Britain’s future is not likely to be this violent, but it may not be peaceful either.

When the Christian activist group Britain First took large crosses through Luton’s Bury Park, angry Muslims confronted them.

MUSLIM MAN: It’s our country.

WHITE MAN: It’s your country, is it, yeah?

MUSLIM MAN: Yeah mate, it’s our country.

WHITE WOMAN It’s a Christian country.

MUSLIM MAN: It’s not a Christian country.

WHITE WOMAN Yes it is.

MUSLIM MAN: It’s not a Christian country, mate….You’re jealous. You’re jealous that we’re taking over.

MUSLIM WOMAN: The Muslims will take over. Watch.

Urban areas are becoming increasingly Islamic whereas rural area are becoming increasingly English, and there’s a retreat away from these two populations. That’s the future.

Policy analyst George Igler says he does believe it will take 40 or 50 years before the native British are a minority.

“This is a nonsense. It’s going to be much sooner. And more importantly, when you look at places like Luton. When you look at the experience of women in Cologne. We already have a window into what this future will be like. It’s going to violence and sexual violence against non-Muslims. It’s going to be insistence on Sharia Law,” Igler said.

Drastic Changes on the Horizon

Professor Coleman, who stressed he is not anti-Muslim but is simply looking at statistics, nevertheless said the changes could be drastic.

“There are strong currents in Muslim society which wish to see Muslim approaches to diet, to marriage and would like to see Sharia Law incorporated formally into British Law or in respect to some extremist groups would like to see Sharia Law replace British Law,” he said.

More than a half million non-British citizens immigrated to the United Kingdom in 2016. European Union rules prevented Britain from stopping migration from within Europe, but that brought European migrants.

Coleman says Brexit, Britain’s exit from the E.U., will not necessarily stop the influx of immigrants from non-European Islamic nations.

‘England Is Not Going to be England Anymore’

Great Britain was a factory for Muslim terrorists long before the attack on Westminister Bridge by a British-born Muslim. At least 850 British citizens have left the U.K. to join ISIS.

“Look, we have around 100 Sharia courts in this country. We’re the only western country with a functioning network of Sharia tribunals and councils. They’re dealing with marriages, divorce, even with criminal matters. They’re marrying children,” said Anne Marie Waters, from Sharia Watch.

If demographic trends continue, British schools will change when most of the pupils are from non-British backgrounds, as will British foreign policy and military alliances.

Speaking of schools, two years ago an American school district surrendered to SHARIA LAW.

Nothing demonstrates the effectiveness of the Islamic assault on American culture better than the capitulation of our schools.

The entire San Diego Unified School District has essentially surrendered to SHARIA LAW.

Muslim students will now be provided with “safe spaces,” even as Christian students are FORBIDDEN to hold prayer gatherings on school grounds.

And ALL students will be required to take lessons on Islam. Again, there are NO CLASSES teaching Christianity.

San Diego Unified School District administrators and teachers will have calendars showing Islamic holidays, students will learn more about the religion in social studies classes and safe places will be created on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat Islamophobia.

And guess who’s behind this effort, and who will be providing that Islamic education to our children?

None other than the Muslim terrorist-supporting organization CAIR – the Council for American-Islamic Relations.

Since the average American knows very little about our history and Democrats are embracing Muslim politicians who are seeking the Presidency, the shrinking Christian population can expect the Christian persecution to accelerate at an incredible speed.

Joe Biden is in what’s left of Europe calling America an embarrassment. I don’t know if Biden is fondling little girls or not but he can marry little girls if he can bring Sharia Law to America.

The Arkansas Legislature passed a bill banning Sharia Law and Sanctuary Campuses in Arkansas but Governor Asa Hutchinson refused to sign the bill.

When they come for you and your family, will anybody care?

President Trump is doing everything he can to save America for Americans but the deep state fake news media, Democrats, Establishment Republicans, Hollywood and the terrorists are fighting him with all their might.

Please keep this to yourself, we wouldn’t want Christians to know what’s going on.

Wars and Rumors of Wars

February 16, 2019
 
Let me be perfectly clear, IF President Franklin Roosevelt had been a Republican when he called the unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor a “date which will live in infamy,” the Democrats would have blasted him and filed a lawsuit to prevent his response!
 
Since most Americans have not been taught our history, I guess it’s up to old Gene McVay to fill in the gaps?
 
From the Washington Administration to the present, there have been 11 separate formal declarations of war against foreign nations enacted by Congress and the President, encompassing five different wars.
 
The circumstances of President McKinley’s request for a declaration of war against Spain in 1898 stand in singular contrast to all the others. McKinley’s request for a declaration of war on April 25, 1898, was approved by a voice vote of both Houses of Congress on that date. His request was made after Spain had rejected a U.S. ultimatum that Spain relinquish its sovereignty over Cuba and permit Cuba to become an independent state. This ultimatum was supported by a joint resolution of Congress, signed into law on April 20, 1898, that among other things, declared Cuba to be independent, demanded that Spain withdraw its military forces from the island, and directed and authorized the President to use the U.S. Army, Navy and militia of the various states to achieve these ends.
 
In the 20th century, without exception, presidential requests for formal declarations of war by Congress were based on findings by the President that U.S. territory or sovereign rights had been attacked or threatened by a foreign nation. Although President Wilson had tried to maintain U.S. neutrality after the outbreak of the First World War, he regarded the German decision on February 1, 1917, to engage in unrestricted submarine warfare against all naval vessels in the war zone, including those of neutral states, to be an unacceptable assault on U.S. sovereign rights which the German Government had previously pledged to respect. Wilson’s request to Congress for a declaration of war against Germany on April 2, 1917, stated that war had been “thrust upon the United States” by Germany’s actions. Congress passed a joint resolution declaring war which the President signed on April 6, 1917. Wilson delayed requesting a war declaration against AustriaHungary until December 4, 1917. He did so then because that state, a German ally in the war, had become an active instrument of Germany against the United States. Congress quickly passed a joint resolution declaring war which the President signed on December 7, 1917.
 
President Franklin D. Roosevelt requested a declaration of war against Japan on December 8, 1941, because of direct military attacks by that nation against U.S. territory, military personnel and citizens in Hawaii and other outposts in the Pacific area. The House and the Senate passed the requested declaration and the President signed it into law that same day. After Germany and Italy each declared war on the United States on December 11, 1941, President Roosevelt asked Congress to respond in kind by recognizing that a state of war existed between the United States and those two nations.
 
The last time Congress declared war was during World War II. Since then, 102,628 Americans have been killed fighting our politician’s wars such as Vietnam. How did we get engulfed in the Vietnam War you ask?
In the early 1960s the United States had been providing military assistance and support to the government of South Vietnam. Over time tensions, associated with the U.S. military presence in Southeast Asia and support for the South Vietnamese government, grew between the U.S. and the communist government of North Vietnam. On August 2, 1964, a U.S. destroyer, the U.S.S. Maddox, while in international waters off the coast of North Vietnam, in the Gulf of Tonkin, was attacked by North Vietnamese torpedo boats. The attack was repulsed.
 
The State Department protested to the North Vietnamese government and noted that grave consequences would follow additional offensive actions against U.S. forces. Subsequently, on August 4, further attacks by North Vietnamese vessels against U.S. destroyers were reported to Washington. President Lyndon Johnson responded on August 4 by sending U.S. military aircraft to bomb “gunboats and certain supporting facilities” in North Vietnam that had allegedly been used in the actions against U.S. naval vessels. After meeting with congressional leaders, President Johnson on August 5, 1964, formally requested a resolution of Congress that would “express the support of the Congress for all necessary action to protect our armed forces and to assist nations covered by the SEATO Treaty.”
 
Congress responded to President Johnson’s request by passing a joint resolution to “promote the maintenance of international peace and security in southeast Asia.” This legislation has come to be popularly known as the “Gulf of Tonkin resolution.” This joint resolution, enacted on August 10, 1964, stated that “the Congress approves and supports the determination of the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression.” The joint resolution further stated that “consonant with the Constitution of the United States and the Charter of the United Nations and in accordance with its obligations under the Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty, the United States is, therefore, prepared, as the President determines, to take all necessary steps, including the use of armed force, to assist any member or protocol state of the Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty requesting assistance in defense of its freedom.” The joint resolution stated that it would expire whenever the President determined that the “peace and security of the area is reasonably assured” or if Congress chose to terminate it earlier by concurrent resolution.
 
Congress repealed the resolution in 1971.
 
What do you think about the willingness of Democrats and establishment Republicans to send our Armed Forces to the four corners of the world to fight and die while our own country has been invaded?
 

Can You Handle the Truth About Government Corruption in Mena?

February 5, 2019

A Real Movie About Drug Smuggling, Money Laundering & Gun Running in Arkansas will Never make it to the Big Screen!

As government corruption plays out on TV day in and day out and we see the duplicity of the American Justice System,  maybe it’s time for a deep dive into probably the biggest and most far reaching episode of government turning a blind eye to high crimes in the history of America and certainly in the history of Arkansas.

Exactly three months after Arkansas State Police Investigator Russell Welch gave his Mena Drug Smuggling and Money Laundering Deposition in the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office, he met with IRS Investigator Bill Duncan to write a report on their investigation and send it to Iran-Contra prosecutor Lawrence Walsh. Investigator Welch had been ordered by Major Doug Stephens to meet with Duncan over the weekend in Arkansas Attorney General Winston Bryant’s office. Welch had just opened a case concerning the theft of sexually explicit photographs which could have been used to blackmail state officials. On Friday, September 20, Welch went to one of the prisons near Pine Bluff and interviewed the person who had actually taken the photographs, a person whose best friend was very close to Barry Seal. The next morning, Saturday, he and his wife, Debbie Welch, made the three-hour drive to Little Rock.

Returning to Mena on Sunday, Welch told his wife that he didn’t feel too well. He thought he had gotten the flu. Monday the symptoms were worse. By Tuesday Welch was certain that he had a serious case of pneumonia. He had had pneumonia before and recognized the symptoms. Tuesday night he could hardly walk and his wife took him to the local hospital. The doctor gave him some over-the-counter cold tablets and sent him home.

But, Welch’s condition deteriorated further to the point where his wife took him to another doctor in Mena the next day. Dr. Calleton, a Vietnam vet, immediately called the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and told Welch’s wife to get him to Fort Smith immediately. The doctor told her that he should go by ambulance but she might be able to get there faster if she left right then. He called the CDC one more time before they left.

In Fort Smith a team of doctors were waiting. Dr. Calleton had called them twice while Welch was in transport and they had been in contact with the CDC. Later the doctor would tell Welch’s wife that he was on the edge of death. He would not have made it through the night had he not been in the hospital. He was having fever seizures by now.

A couple of days after Welch had been admitted to St. Edwards Mercy Hospital, his doctor was wheeling him to one of the labs for testing when she asked him if he was doing anything at work that was particularly dangerous. He told her that he had been a cop for about 15 years and that danger was probably inherent with the job description. She told Welch that they believed he had anthrax. She said the anthrax was the military kind that is used as an agent of biological warfare and that it was induced. Somebody had deliberately infected him. She added that they had many more test to run but they had already started treating him for anthrax.

It took Welch a while to digest what the doctor had told him. Welch knew that in his business if you couldn’t document something and/or corroborate it somehow, then it never happened. The next day, in the hospital room, the doctor told Debbie Welch, that they believed her husband had military anthrax and they were going to treat him for it. The doctor also told Debbie that Russell was very sick now and it was going to get worse before it was over, because the disease was going to have to run its course. She was right. The following day Arkansas State Police Investigator Andy Wiley was in Welch’s room and heard the doctor repeat the diagnosis. This time Welch told the doctor that he read about an outbreak of anthrax in some cattle in southeastern Arkansas a couple of weeks earlier. The doctor told Welch and his visitors that the warfare biological agent is not the same as the cow disease. She shook her finger in Welch’s face and said emphatically, “No, somebody did this to you. Somebody sprayed you in the face.” She described how the infectious agent is carried in canisters. She said, “This is the same stuff that Saddam Hussein was going to use on our troops.” Investigator Wiley wrote down the names of Welch’s medication and later confirmed that he was, in fact, being treated for anthrax. Other state police officers went to the hospital room, periodically, to help Debbie Welch, who stayed in the private room with her husband day and night for the entire 14 days that Welch was hospitalized. Investigator Charles Lambert and Investigator Bobby Walker were among those that heard the doctor discuss Welch’s circumstances and the anthrax.

The treatment was very effective against the anthrax but had severe side effects. Welch suffered a partial kidney failure. The doctor said it was a calculated risk that she had to take when she decided to treat him for anthrax. Welch was a weight lifter and stayed in good shape. The doctor told him that if it hadn’t been for that the chances are that he still might not have survived the disease. The doctor also credited his physical conditioning when he gained back most of the 40 percent of his renal functions which had been lost due to the anthrax treatment.

After this incident, Welch spent time trying to figure out how he could have gotten the anthrax. One possibility, he finally concluded, was through envelopes carrying padding material in which the infectious agent, Bacillus anthracis, can be transmitted. The Arkansas State Police used these for a while to mail microcassette tapes containing investigator’s dictation. Welch’s padded envelopes were returned to him with the tops torn off. When he complained to the secretary, Kim McBride, in Hope, Arkansas, she told him that the padded envelopes were not torn when she mailed them. Welch told his supervisor, Lt. Finis Duvall. Rather than do an investigation to find out who was tampering with official state police mail, some of which was sensitive, Lt. Duvall just said, “Well, I’ll be damn… wonder who’s doing that.”

Welch was discharged from the hospital on October 8, 1991. From there on, Welch’s career in the State Police never was the same. He suffered harassment, transfers, unwarranted criticism, and public hearings of his performance. His superiors in the state police were concerned that he was answering questions from the press now that Bill Clinton was seeking the presidency. At one point he was interrogated about whether or not he was writing a book. After nineteen years of honorable service, solving difficult cases, being requested by victims and their families in other parts of the state to be assigned to their investigations, Welch was being humiliated like an enlistee in military bootcamp. All of this was being done at the hands of men appointed by Bill Clinton and Jim Guy Tucker. An honest cop just trying to do his job, Welch finally left the State Police on January 16, 1996. After 20 years on the force, he left a poor and disillusioned man.

Even though Welch and Duncan sent boxes of evidence to Lawrence Walsh in Washington, Walsh never showed any interest in Mena at all.

Ask yourself, “Who has access to Military Grade Anthrax and can get away with the use of Biological Warfare in Arkansas?”  The international community banned the use of chemical and Biological Weapons after World War 1 and reinforced the ban in 1972 and 1993 by prohibiting their development, stockpiling and transfer.   Where was the International Community when biological weapons were used in Arkansas?

On Christmas Eve of 1992 — seven weeks after losing his bid for a second presidential term to Bill Clinton — George H.W. Bush pardoned six members of the Reagan administration who had been charged with crimes including perjury, lying to Congress or obstruction of justice.

All those charges stemmed from attempts by senior Reagan administration officials to cover up a covert White House operation whose disdain for established law and outright deception marred Reagan’s tenure.

The scheme, which unfolded over a two-year period beginning in late 1985, started with illegal arms sales to Iran.

Selling weapons to Tehran, which was at war with Iraq at the time, had two objectives. One was to enlist Iran’s assistance in freeing American hostages being held in Lebanon.

In turn, profits from Iran’s purchase at highly inflated prices for the weapons — which were routed through Israel — were used for the scheme’s other objective: buying arms for anti-communist rebels known as Contras who were fighting to topple the elected Marxist government of Nicaragua.

Those weapons purchases were done in defiance of a Congressional Ban on aid to the Contras.

Bush’s grant of pardons came 12 days before Caspar Weinberger, President Ronald Reagan’s defense secretary, was to go on trial. Weinberger had been charged with obstruction of justice and lying to Congress about the arms shipments to the Contras.

The focus of that trial was to have been a private notebook of Weinberger’s that contained references to Bush’s knowledge of the illegal arms sales to Iran.

Bringing those charges against Weinberger and the five others Bush pardoned was Lawrence Walsh, the independent prosecutor who investigated the Iran-Contra affair for seven years.

“The Weinberger pardon marked the first time a President ever pardoned someone in whose trial he might have been called as a witness,” Walsh wrote in a scathing 1993 final report on his investigation, “because the President was knowledgeable of factual events underlying the case.”

Bush issued the pardons contending that Walsh’s investigation amounted to the “criminalization of policy differences.”

The independent prosecutor’s quarrel with Bush was not limited to the pardons, which effectively scuttled Walsh’s investigation just as Bush was leaving office.

As Walsh wrote in response to the pardons, Weinberger’s notes revealed “evidence of a conspiracy among the highest-ranking Reagan administration officials to lie to Congress and the American public.”

Bush had publicly insisted he knew little about the Iran-Contra operation, but his diary revealed otherwise. “I’m one of the few people that know fully the details, and there is a lot of flak and misinformation out there,” he noted in a Nov. 5, 1986, entry. “It is not a subject we can talk about.”

Bush’s role in Iran-Contra was perhaps most memorably dissected during a remarkable live interview he did with CBS Evening Newsanchorman Dan Rather in January 1988.

Rather pointedly cited a poll indicating that one-third of Republicans believed Bush was hiding something about his role in the Iran-Contra affair.

“I am hiding something,” Bush angrily responded. “You know what I’m hiding? What I told the president, and that’s the only thing, and I’ve answered every question put before me.”

Bush was equally defiant about having gone along with Iran-Contra once he became aware of the operation.

“I went along with it, because you know why, Dan? Because I worried when I saw (captured Beirut CIA station chief) Mr. Buckley, heard about Mr. Buckley being tortured to death,” Bush told Rather. “So if I erred, I erred on the side of trying to get those hostages out of there.”

Bush ignored a question from Rather about whether he was concerned about sending missiles to Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini.

“This is not a great night, because I want to talk about why I want to be president, why those 41 percent of the people (in a poll of Iowans) are supporting me,” Bush told Rather well into the nine-minute heated exchange.

“And I don’t think it’s fair to judge a whole career, it’s not fair to judge my whole career, by a rehash on Iran.”

Rather reminded Bush that as vice president, he had claimed to have been “out of the loop” about Iran-Contra.

“May I explain out of the loop?” Bush replied. “No operational role.”

Bush would go on to win a single term in the White House, years that were dogged by Walsh, the independent prosecutor, trying to get to the bottom of how much the 41st president had known about the arms-for-hostages scandal and how much he had held back evidence of what he had known and when he knew it.

The inescapable conclusion to all this is that the Bush Sr. White House, which had in reality been in force since the first Reagan term, colluded with a little-known-at-the-time Arkansas governor to create and run the largest drug smuggling/arms smuggling/money laundering operation in history, which in turn helped prop up the bogus economy of the good old USA, the world’s do-gooder Policeman which really turned out to be, surprise, the world’s number one Narco-terrorist.

U.S. Attorney Asa Hutchinson did such a great job cleaning up the Mena mess that little George Bush made him the Drug Czar and Under Secretary of Homeland Security.

SWITCHING BACK TO MENA

If you are interested in the depths of corruption in every level of government, this oral deposition of Russell Welch might open your eyes to the size of the Moon? It was produced at the request of the Attorney General’s Office, taken on the 21st day of June, 1991, before Jeff Bennett, C. C. R., Certificate #19, of BUSHMAN COURT REPORTING, INC., Notary Public in and for White County, Arkansas at the Office of the Attorney General, 323 Center Street, Little Rock, Arkansas at 2:30 p. m:

Q. You started investigating the situation in. Do you recall an instance in when the then U. S. Attorney Asa Hutchinson convened a grand jury for money laundering at Mena, do you recall that?

A. Concerning Rich Mountain Aviation?

Q. Well, concerning — yes, money laundering in Mena —

A. Is this the Investigation that Bill Duncan was —

Q. Yes.

A. Yes

Q. Did you assist in any way with that investigation, Russell?

A. Shortly prior to that I had spoken to Steve Snyder with FBI Agent Tom Ross over a sandwich in Fort Smith while we were preparing for court on a totally unrelated local drug offense, at which time Agent Tom Ross and myself were amusing ourselves with camouflaged C-‘s sitting at the Mena Airport. Steve Snyder, an excellent prosecutor, overheard the conversation, he was sitting right there with us, asked that we bring the case file in, he wanted to see this. He said he didn’t know what was going on, but he said, “We’re not going to have it going on in western Arkansas.”

Sometime, it wasn’t long after that, probably within the next month or so, that I had met Bill Duncan, and Bill Duncan notified me that we were to meet with Asa Hutchinson in Fort Smith to begin a grand jury investigation concerning a smuggling activity and money laundering activity. And when I got to Fort
Smith at the arranged time, I actually went up the elevator with Steve Snyder and was-carrying on like it was his meeting, because I assumed that it was because he had said something to me already. And we got to the top of the elevator, and he walked off in the other direction, and I asked him where he was going, were we having the meeting down there, and he said, “What meetings?” I said, “Well, we’re having a meeting on the and the activity around it that we talked about before,” and he said, “I don’t know anything about it,” and was, appeared to me, slightly upset that it was going on without — that he wasn’t involved. I never did get a chance to talk with him about that.

But we went into the meeting with Asa Hutchinson, and Asa was very up-tempo, asked what we knew about the events at that time, which was precious little, embarrassingly little, and asked for a witness list, and we were going to convene a grand jury. And my part in it was — I knew less than Bill Duncan did about his. Bill Duncan was going to pursue the money laundering
investigation, and I was going to pursue the other activities.

So that, with the explanation, I was — taken a very much lesser role in Bill’s investigation.

Q. Were you subpoenaed for the grand jury in the fall of

A. No. I’ve never been subpoenaed for grand jury in this
case.

Q. You were not asked to testify regarding the money laundering in any shape, form or fashion before a grand jury; is that correct?

A. No.

Q. Did you have — what was your experience, Russell, with the federal authorities relating to the — to their cooperation with you in your investigation of the Mena situation?

A. It was a — it took me a long the to completely digest what was happening to me. But it was a very disappointing, humiliating experience.

Q. How do you mean — what do you mean?

A. When I went into this, I had never been involved in a federal grand jury investigation, didn’t know what it meant. I had some of my cases handled in Federal Court, but they were cases that had already been investigated. Most of them, we’d let a federal agent come in and help us with them, then we’d go to Federal Court. And they’d get them a case, and we’d — you know, it was just an easy way to handle it.

This time, as I got involved in this investigation with Bill Duncan, I was kind of following his lead a little bit. It started out very well. Asa Hutchinson was very up-tempo and things were good. And I knew Asa Hutchinson’s reputation was top-notch before that.

I remember when he came in as U. S. Attorney, everybody was really relieved in western Arkansas because we had had some uneventful prosecutions prior to that apparently. And he did a good job. He had a lot of prosecutions. Well liked.

My first uncomfortable experience was at the first grand jury session concerning money laundering where two witnesses, Jim Nugent and Kathy Corrigan, testified, and I was up there just for moral support more than anything else, and to see what was going on . And after they came out of the — out of their session with the grand jury, each individually expressed concern to Bill Duncan that they were disappointed, that they hadn’t been asked the proper questions. They didn’t like what happened to them in the grand jury room. And that concerned me a little at the time. But Bill Duncan, I remember him telling them not to worry, that Asa Hutchinson knows what he’s doing, and that there’s a reason for what — the way he’s handling this. And they tentatively accepted that. That was my first concern. But based on what Bill told them, I felt a little better about the situation. And I don’t know what happened at the grand jury, when they said they didn’t feel like they were asked the questions that they had been led to believe were the pertinent
ones for their testimony.

Shortly after that — I believe that’s the last session I can remember that Asa Hutchinson held with the grand jury concerning this investigation. Shortly after that, I learned that he was quitting his position and was going to run for some political office, and that Mike Fitzhugh would be taking over United States Attorney. My contact with the United States Attorney’s Office for the most part ended at that time.

There were a lot of frustration in that — in the lack of communication. We were so busy, it wasn’t really noticeable at first. By “we,” I mean myself and Bill Duncan, and myself and the people in my department going — traveling to New Orleans, or to Baton Rouge, to Texas, gathering information. We were busy trying to find out what had happened and gather a case file and see if there was something to investigate. And as the more we went, the more we found out, just a little here and a little there, and we slowly started building a case and saw at some point that, yes, there is something here that needs to be investigated. We have got cocaine smuggling that is not a covert operation by somebody who feels that we don’t need to know. Which we wouldn’t have trouble with that, with somebody who carried on a covert operation and not telling us, because you just can’t be too safe.

By the time we decided that we did have an investigation, that we did have a case, that we could focus on it, we could show where a crime had been committed, we didn’t seem to be able to get our evidence into grand jury. And I can’t really pinpoint a place where it started, except that there were — I remember a meeting of Mike Fitzhugh and a woman from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami concerning money laundering. She was to be out here to instruct Mike Fitzhugh how to handle the money laundering case. And Bill Duncan had asked me to be up there, and my supervisor, Lieutenant Finus Duvall, came up, and it seems like there was somebody else, but I can’t remember. And we sat in a little office down the hall from Mike Fitzhugh’s office all day thinking that we were going to be needed in his office. And finally — and Bill Duncan would come in every once in a while frustrated saying that — telling us that he didn’t know what was going on, didn’t know what was wrong, but Mike Fitzhugh didn’t want us in there. And at one point late in the day somehow, however it happened, I don’t know whether it was Bill Duncan or Mike Fitzhugh or whatever happened, but we were allowed to come in and give the status for our investigation at that time, present it to this lady. And she seemed obviously interested. She was — she thought that that was — that needed to be pursued. She said, “This case needs to be pursued.” And that — and I don’t remember if she made the statement at that time or later, we were told that — out of her office, that they had two other Assistant U.S. Attorneys that would like to come out and help him prosecute the case. We did have a case developing at that time for cocaine smuggling. There was some concern over the way we were treated prior to the presentation we gave her. Never heard from her again.

I don’t think it was too long after that, that I was attending a grand jury session in Fayetteville where I knew that the Rich Mountain Aviation case would be coming up. I had not received a subpoena, but I had permission to go up and spend the night in Fort smith on behalf of the Arkansas State Police, Colonel Goodwin was very supportive in the investigation, and if it hadn’t been for him I’d probably quit a long time before things did finally come to an end.

Q. And what do you mean by that, just because of your frustrations?

A. Just from the frustrations, I — it wasn’t going anywhere. I wasn’t getting support. I wasn’t getting subpoenas.

Q. Yeah, that was my question. What do you mean you weren’t getting support; you weren’t allowed to issue subpoenas or what?

A. Right. Asa Hutchinson had originally asked for subpoenas, and I didn’t know who to subpoena at the time, or I would have given him a list. When I finally did get — find out who needed subpoenas. I requested the subpoenas by either calling Mike Fitzhugh directly or sending word through Bill Duncan, and was denied the subpoenas. At that time the denial was based on, I believe it was the Graham Rudman Act was in the air at that time, and he said he just didn’t have the money to subpoena people for this case.

Q. Did you ever get those subpoenas issued?

A. Towards the end, you know, there eventually was something take place in grand jury. Subpoenas were issued. When I — when some of the key people were in grand jury, I never got a subpoena. I wasn’t asked to show up. And I felt like I was probably the most knowledgeable person or able to give the most help as to what those individuals should be saying, what they said in interviews, what their history is concerning Barry Seal.

I didn’t feel like anybody else that was there at the time would have known the questions to ask them. When I finally did get a chance to testify in front of a grand jury myself, it was because one lady on the grand jury was from Mena, worked at Mena Airport, and she saw me hanging out in the hall outside the grand jury room in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and told the others that if they wanted to know something about the Mena Airport they ought to ask that guy out there in the hall. At which time Mike Fitzhugh, somewhat angrily, told me that the grand jury wanted to talk to me. At that time, I didn’t know, I thought it was Mike Fitzhugh that was wanting me to come in, and later found out that it wasn’t. I was still optimistic that we had an investigation going on. And I told him that I could at the time, the best I could. And after that grand jury hearing that I testified in, Mike Fitzhugh asked me into the judge’s chambers next to the grand jury room in Fayetteville, and asked me if I could accept a — two misdemeanor counts on the — concerning the allegations being made against Rich Mountain Aviation. He didn’t mention any names. He just said would I accept two misdemeanor counts on individuals and maybe something on the corporate. But I told him that I couldn’t, but I didn’t care what he did, and I wouldn’t hold him accountable or criticize or talk behind his back or anything concerning what he did, because he was the U.S. Attorney and I was just an investigator, and that’s the way I felt about it. I said, “personally, I can’t accept two misdemeanor counts because the way I interpret the case it demands more than that.” And then he said, “Well, will you accept one misdemeanor count and one felony?” And I asked if were talking about conspiracy to smuggle drugs, and he said yes. And I said, “No, I can’t do that.” Just knowing the characters that we’re talking about, Joe Evans and Freddie Hampton, I was up front with him, I said, “Give Joe Evans the felony count because he’s always been an outlaw anyway and he doesn’t care one way or the other, and give the Freddie the misdemeanor.” But I said, “The case just merits more than that. There’s more than that to it.” And I reiterated that I can’t accept it, but if you want to do it, go ahead. You don’t need my blessing. And he — we spent a long time in that room, and a good part of it was spent with him walking back and forth looking out the window not saying anything. It was a — it was a very strained period of time that we were in that office together. And that was all there was to that.

Q. So actually no one was ever indicted, were they?

A. No.

Q. And how would you describe the cooperation of other federal agencies?

A. Mixed. The Drug Enforcement Administration in Florida, absolutely zero. They’re just as useless to us as tits on a boar hog. We had no use for them at all. I mean, they had just from what they gave us, there were almost to the point of rudeness. We did not get anything out of them. I went to an agent conference in Savannah, Georgia during that time period, which this group, Group or Group , whatever it is, did not show up. But there were other Customs agents there and other DEA groups represented, and they were all pretty open that they were surprised that this group from Miami DEA didn’t show up.

They stated that they were unable to get any use out of them as far as sharing information or working cases. It was just a problem for everybody. And we all rationalized that they had a major problem there, and probably don’t have time to mess with us. The amount of drugs that we would get excited about, they wouldn’t even go into court with. Rationalized to keep things going smooth.

The two DEA officers in Baton Rouge were very helpful, Mike Long and another one, I can’t remember his name, They had been investigating Barry Seal for some time, and they were extremely helpful and gave us information for a while that we would never have got from any other source. And they gave us a witness who was in — at that time was in a safehouse or was being kept in an isolated area because he was about to or had testified against Barry Seal, and they gave us this witness. Which just amazed us. And they gave us a couple of others, a guy named LeBlanc and some others that we had no idea how to get ahold of.  The DEA in Arkansas, they were pleasant, easy to get along, but they had no interest in the Barry Seal case at all.

As we observed Barry Seal fly into Mena one cold December night, a young pilot by the name of Earl, Billy Earl, I believe. WE had the airport under surveillance. We had received word that either a smuggling operation was going to be consummated there, or was — something was about to happen concerning Barry Seal. And this was from the operation Coin Roll investigation out of the task force in New Orleans. We set up, we had the FBI, DEA, State Police, and probably about any other investigative agency you can think of, we were all out there in force. I think Arkansas Game and Fish was represented.

And the plane did come in. And we observed what later was described as changing of a bladder tank. It was snowing that night. and the DEA wasn’t on the airport. They never pulled a surveillance mission. One of the FBI agents commented to me that his partner had stated to him later on, he said, “This is the last time I go on surveillance for an air smuggling mission that the DEA stays in the motel while the rest of us are out in the snow,” and he said, “that’s got to be a clue.” so we didn’t get a lot of support from the Arkansas Drug Enforcement Administration.

And from other areas it was mixed. We dealt with a lot of agents and agencies who were burned out on investigating Barry Seal, because it had ended in — all of their efforts had just ended in futility and frustration, sometimes lawsuits. And when they felt like they had cases, things just fell out from under them, and they just wouldn’t investigate him and didn’t want to hear about it, and certainly didn’t want to hear about him from us.

One Customs agent told me that, after I was trying to get some help from him, he said “look, we’ve been told not to touch anything that has Barry Seal’s name on it, just to let it go.”  And he said, “That’s fine. We’ve got plenty of other work to do.” I could go on and on.

Q. So basically would it be a fair summary to say that in your professional opinion Barry Seal moved his entire drug smuggling operation to Mena, Arkansas in the early ‘s and operated there for how long, until his death?

A. Oh, yeah.

Q. Until?

A. Yeah, past there was obvious government involvement with him.

Q. And although you never physically seized any cocaine, in your professional opinion there were shipments of cocaine that came into Mena Airport and/or Mr. Seal had brought those shipments — or had brought cocaine in from Columbia and let them out in isolated areas to be picked up with his helicopters which were based at Mena at various times?

A. We’ve got reason to believe that that’s exactly what happened.

Q. And based on reports to you, there was at least some evidence of paramilitary operations or trainings in the Mena vicinity, at least during some of the time?

A. Yes, there definitely was.

Q. This, in my opinion, Mr. Welch, is essentially the same testimony that Bill Duncan has given, and it is essentially the testimony that Richard Brenneke has given, except that he’s gone further in some areas. And I don’t think you’ll be able to testify to this from your own knowledge, but I want to ask you if it might be consistent with what you’ve seen at the Mena Airport. Mr. Brenneke, if I can paraphrase his testimony, has testified that he, himself, flew shipments of cocaine into the Mena Airport and that, according to his personal knowledge, some of those cocaine shipments were delivered to representatives of organized crime in this country. In your opinion as a
professional law enforcement officer, could this have happened at the Mena Airport?

A. Absolutely. I would want to add that since I have ended my investigation of cocaine smuggling and have been listening to the allegations of training, military training having taken place at the Nella Airport, whether that took place or not I don’t know. I can say that that does have explanative value to otherwise unexplained events that took place during the time period.

Lester Campbell, who was a friend of mine and was a supervisor of the Game and Fish Officers in that area, enforcement officers, was chased off from the Nella Airport area by, I believe he described them as camouflaged subjects who rudely told him to leave. There were reports of the Game and Fish officers who were told the same thing. And during that time period we were getting reports of air traffic at the Nella Airport. And it was during that same time that I was testifying at a murder trial in Waldron, Arkansas, which is the county seat for Scott County where Nella Airport is located. An FBI agent from Fort smith — the Fort Smith Office asked me to visit with him in the Sheriff’s Office at the Waldron, Scott County Courthouse, and asked me to tell him everything I knew about the Nella Airport. I proceeded to do that. One of our investigators, Don Taylor, who is now Chief of Police at Fort Smith, was in there and I thought that they were investigating the allegations that I had been hearing concerning Game and Fish officers being rudely evicted from the area and the air traffic in the area. And the Sheriff at that time had also got these same reports. Several months later, I asked Don Taylor — or weeks, I asked Don Taylor how that investigation was going, and he told me that he wasn’t involved in any investigation. He was just there on something else, and just happened to be in the room with this FBI agent when I came in. That he had no idea what I was talking about. Nothing ever developed from that.

MR. BRYANT: Okay. Let’s go off the record.

(Off-the-record.)

Q. BY MR. BRYANT) So following up on your answer that drugs could have been delivered to representatives of organized crime at the Mena Airport. Is there any other reasonable explanation as to what would have happened to drugs that were brought into Mena?

A. We were never able to come up with any explanation whatsoever as to what happened to the drugs. We just knew that definitely a lot of cocaine was coming into the country. And where it went, we had no idea.

Q. And it’s almost inconceivable to think that that amount of cocaine was used locally or in the general area of Mena, Arkansas?

A. Oh, definitely. We’re talking one to two trips a week, or two weeks, however it varied, with to pounds of cocaine each trip. I’ve got no idea how that much cocaine would be disseminated.

Q. And, in fact, Mr. Welch, you interviewed Barry Seal himself, did you not?

A. Yes.

Q. And did he not admit that he brought in billions of dollars of cocaine and drugs into this country over about an eight to ten year period of time?

A. Yes, he did.

Q. And –

A. And stated that during the year , the center of his operation was the Mena Airport.

Q. So it’s even likely that organized crime or some type of entity would have been the recipient of such large amounts of cocaine, would it not?

A. I’ve never even known of a dealer who could handle that quantity.

Q. Then, in your opinion as a professional law enforcement officer, you would not think it unreasonable for Barry Seal to bring drugs into Mena and sell those drugs to organized crime?

A. No. Whether it’s true or not, it has a lot of explanative value to me. And I don’t know who else would take the drugs.

Q. Okay.

A. It would take tremendous organization to disseminate that amount.

Q. Now, let’s go back to the case that you were working up that never resulted in any indictments whatsoever. Did the U.S. Attorney, Mr. Fitzhugh, ever tell you that a federal judge wouldn’t allow these cases to be presented?

A. The meeting that I had with him at the first grand jury session that I had testified before in Fayetteville, during that meeting, when we were discussing possible misdemeanor charges, he told me that we might get an indictment, and we probably could get an indictment, but a federal judge would never let it get to court, and we would be wasting our time.

Q. Who is Matt Fleming?

A. Matt Fleming was an Assistant U.S. Attorney.

Q. In the Fort smith Office?

A. In the Fort Smith Office.

Q. Did he ever tell you that you had enough evidence for a conspiracy case against the individuals at Mena?

A. During one of our meetings that I and others were present at, Matt Fleming and Mike Fitzhugh discussed in our presence the charges that they might want to pursue to the grand jury. Mike Fitzhugh said that he thought we had a good conspiracy case, that he was going to try to get an indictment on during the next session. But he reviewed and discussed with us the merits of aiding and abetting a case as opposed to conspiracy, and thought that — and asked us if we would approve that. He said it’s — the penalty is just the same, very similar, and that it would be easier to handle in court. And in that session, I believe one other, Matt Fleming told him that he thought the conspiracy case would be — you could go with. And that, I believe, Larry Carver with the DEA was at — in one of those sessions with us, also.

Q. Did the deputy foreman of the grand jury ever express concerns to you about a coverup or not being able to get the evidence they needed?

A. Yes.

Q. And who was that?

A. That was P.J. Pitts, Patty Pitts.

Q. And basically what did she tell you?

A. She was — had expressed concern that they weren’t being allowed to investigate the Mena Airport. That Mike Fitzhugh wasn’t giving them the evidence that they needed to have, and wasn’t giving them the witnesses they needed to have. She felt like that they were being hindered. That they wanted to indict, but were being kept back from it. And that what she finally realized was that he was asking for — the indictments that he was asking them to give, he had not given the evidence on. She stated that they wanted to indict for conspiracy. But he — when it come up for vote, what he presented to them was a case for cocaine actually being there at the Mena Airport, which we never proved. And he never gave them the opportunity to indict for conspiracy. I believe that’s the gist of what — and money laundering. Money laundering was a big thing. They never got the evidence on money laundering.

Q. Did the FBI come to Mena and warn you not to screw up the CIA operation?

A. I’m not sure what the purpose was for their appearance.  Floyd Hayes and Tom Ross were the FBI agents assigned to the Hot Springs Office. This was a period in which I wasn’t investigating. I had it behind me, and didn’t want to mess with it anymore, and I had other cases to go on to, and heard all of Barry Seal I wanted to hear. And there was some new activity at the airport with the appearance of what appeared to be an Australian business by the name of Southern Cross, and C-‘s had appeared at the Mena Airport. And this was right on the heels of Barry Seal’s assassination and the being there. So there was almost an unconscious association. And I still didn’t want to mess with it. I didn’t see a crime. If you’re not going to show me a crime, don’t expect me to investigate, was my attitude at the time. And the two agents showed up one Friday afternoon and asked me to — or to have coffee with me. And we met at a local coffee shop, and they explained that a friend of theirs at the Hot Springs Airport, who is — was in the CIA, and they had checked on it and confirmed that he was with the CIA, and that he was a source of theirs, had come to them stating that he received a telephone call from a current CIA member in Miami who was involved with the Southern Air Transport operation. And the Miami agent told the Hot Springs Airport contact that they had something going on at the Mena Airport involving Southern Air Transport, and what had been going on at Southern Air Transport. And they didn’t want us to screw it up like we had the last one.

At that time Oliver North was being intensely investigated.  And I was under the impression that he was being investigated for illegal activity that did take place, whether he was involved or not. And I felt like the FBI was telling me that there may be illegal activity going on here. When I asked them why they were telling me, they said they just wanted me to know.  And I asked specifically, “Do we need to investigate it?” They said they didn’t know. I felt like I was being — kind of requested to keep an eye on it, which I did, and kept notes, and pretty much unwillingly followed it for a while. And then, later on, when they were asked about that conversation, they both denied it.

Q. As a law enforcement officer, how did you feel after investigating the situation at Mena for a number of years and nothing ever happened?

A. I’ve got a lot of different feelings. Bitterness is certainly one of them, because if there was something there that they didn’t want investigated, all they ever had to do was tell me to take a hike, and I would never have asked any questions.

We have operations all the time — our own agents in the State Police come into Mena and do undercover operations and don’t tell me. I don’t need to know, and I don’t want to know. I don’t get put on an investigation investigating my own people and wasting my time. I could have quit anytime.

A local law enforcement officer came to me at one point a couple of years ago and asked if they could put some kind of group together of law enforcement agencies to try to contact somebody, to lobby, or whatever, because they just didn’t feel like busting somebody for an ounce of marijuana, when they felt like there were -they knew that so much cocaine transportation had gone unpunished with — when there was evidence to pursue it. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s not a good feeling to be used that way.

Q. In other words, you feel that you were used in this entire operation, and that the responsible officials never intended to pursue any criminal charges against responsible people?

A. That’s absolutely the way I feel. At one time we were trying to get Colonel Goodwin’s name on the -E list so I could brief him as to what I was doing with what I thought was a grand jury investigation. In a conference room at State Police Headquarters in Little Rock, I called Mike Fitzhugh and — to ask him if I could tell the Colonel the status of the investigation, and he said no. And I asked him if there was a grand jury investigation, and he paused for a minute and said no, said there wasn’t a grand jury investigation. And this was after I thought I had been involved in one for probably a year and a half at that time and had been keeping secrets. You know, at least he could tell me that I’m not involved in a grand jury investigation.

MR. BRYANT: Let’s go off the record.

(Off-the record.)

MR. BRYANT: That’s all. Thank you.

Is America Living on Borrowed Time?

January 31, 2019

Here was the headline six months ago: Why is Donald Trump attacking the US intelligence community?

Here is Gene McVay’s answer: Because the community is as worthless as a VA hospital and has failed to stop a single terrorist attack!

The incompetence of these intelligence bureaucracies is mind boggling! They are not even fiddling while Iran is busy fulfilling their role as the Chief State Sponsor of Terrorism!

Years under leaders like lying Clapper and Brennan have rendered the agencies impotent!

It has been reported that nuclear scientists from North Korea and Russia have been working in Iran for years. I have read nothing about Chinese nuclear scientists in Iran but China is Iran’s number one trading partner.

It’s only 4,000 miles between North Korea and Iran. Several business jets have a range of 7,000 miles. Who knows what kind of weapons are being flown into Iran?

Iran must have nukes by now even if they have to use the $140 billion Obama cash to buy them!

Terrorist organizations have been trying to buy nuclear weapons for 20 years!

More than 100 suitcase nukes went missing when the Soviet Union fell.

When John McCain was chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee he said that his greatest fear was Iran getting nuclear weapons and giving them to terrorists and that was a very real possibility.

Nuclear, biological and chemical weapons can be brought through the same hole in the border fence that drugs and other contraband are smuggled through!

I wrote a blog in 2014 reporting that Iranian books were found discarded along the pathway leading from the Mexican Border,

Terrorists have had decades to move weapons of mass destruction across our borders and coastlines. It WMDs are not already here it’s because terrorists don’t want them!

Can you look up from your butterscotch latte for a second and listen to Gene McVay? A tiny bomb, with a chunk of highly enriched uranium smaller than a bowling ball, could be placed in the middle of any city in the USA and detonated with a blast equivalent to a mile long freight train loaded with dynamite.

Just this week in Nogales, a load of Fentanyl was intercepted that was enough to kill 57 million people. Earlier a stash of Fentanyl was discovered in Nebraska large enough to kill more than 26 million people.

I’m not going to list every threat to National Security we face but maybe you remember that our diplomats in Cuba and China were recalled after being attacked with some kind of sonic weapon that caused brain concussions?

I have not been an Intelligence Analyst since 1965 and have not had a Top Secret clearance for 23 years but my guess is that those sonic weapons possibly used microwaves and were probably tests at the lowest power settings?

President Donald Trump is trying to save America in spite of the deep state intelligence community, 100% of the Democrats and Establishment Republicans, the Fake News media, Hollywood, many of our so called allies and billions of people who want Big and Little Satan to cease to exist.

Can you understand the threats? Which side are you on?

Maybe Syria can become the 51st State?

January 31, 2019

President Barack Obama formally called for President Assad to step down “for the sake of the Syrian people” and issued new sanctions on his regime in August 2011.

President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom joined Obama calling on Assad to resign.

Most of those so-called leaders are gone and cowering under the bed in fear of global warming but Assad is still standing and about 560,000 people have died in that civil war.

About as many people have been killed in Syria as were killed during the American Civil War.

Syrian, Germany, France and the United Kingdom didn’t get involved in our Civil War but somehow the United States gets involved in just about every war except the Peloponnesian War!

We saved Europe and now Europeans hate America and our President!

According to Isaiah 17, Damascus will cease to exist as a city and become a ruinous heap. I have warned Christians to get out of Damascus and I am thrilled that President Trump will get our military out of Syria.

Isn’t it time to worry about America and Americans? Probably more than 20 million uninvited foreigners have invaded America! Many hate America and some are terrorists.

Our deep state government has no idea who is in OUR country, where they are or what diabolical plans they have in store for us

Remember the Alamo?

January 6, 2019

Last month, when Julián Castro filed the paperwork to run for President, he had to add an accent over the a in Julián by hand. The Federal Election Commission hadn’t planned for a candidate with a Mexican name.

The former Mayor of the Alamo City is the only Latino in the Democratic 2020 Presidential field.

San Antonio is the second largest city in Texas and a predominantly Hispanic American microcosm.

One of the most gallant stands of courage and undying self-sacrifice in the pages of history is the defense of the Alamo and the old Mission remains one of the priceless heritages of Texans.

It was the battle-cry of “Remember the Alamo” that later spurred on the forces of Sam Houston at San Jacinto. Anyone who has ever heard of the brave fight of Colonel Travis and his men is sure to “Remember the Alamo.”

Besieged by Mexican General Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna, who had reached Bexar on February 23, 1836, Colonel William Barret Travis, with his force of 182, refused to surrender but elected to fight and die, which was almost certain, for what they thought was right.

As the Battle of the Alamo was in progress, a part of the Texas Army had assembled in Gonzales under the command of Mosely Baker in the latter part of February. From this army, a gallant band of 32 courageous men under the command of George C. Kimble left to join the garrison at the Alamo. Making their way through the enemy lines, these 32 men joined the doomed defenders and perished with them.

Kimble’s pregnant wife was washing clothes in a creek with 2-year old Charles nearby when George announced the plans of the Gonzales Ranging Company to answer Travis’ appeal for aid to the surrounded Alamo garrison in San Antonio. His parting words indicated that he felt he probably would not return.

On February 23, 1836, Kimble was mustered into the Gonzales Ranging Company as a Lieutenant and Commander of the unit. After learning that James Fannin was not going to the Alamo as reinforcements, and that there would likely be no other reinforcements, George Kimble and Albert Martin lead a group of 25 men from Gonzales at 2 pm on Saturday, February 27. The party would number 32 upon its arrival at the Alamo. As they approached the Alamo in the early morning hours of March 1, a rider appeared in front of them and asked, in English, if they wished to go into the fort. When they said yes, he turned and told them to follow him. When one of the men became suspicious, the rider bolted away. The volunteers were afraid they had been discovered and galloped towards the Alamo. In the darkness, the Texians thought this was a party of Mexican soldiers and fired. One man was wounded, and his English curses convinced the defenders to open the gates. These Texian reinforcements were later dubbed the Immortal 32. Kimble died at the Alamo on 6 March 1836. His body was burned with those of the other Texas soldiers. Kimble County Texas is named in his honor.

On March 2, 1836, during the siege of the Alamo, Texas independence was declared. Four days later, the document was signed with the blood shed at the Alamo. It was under such conditions that Travis and his men fought off the much larger force under Santa Anna. It was with the love of liberty in his voice and the courage of the faithful and brave that Travis gave his men the none too cheerful choice of the manner in which they wished to die.

Realizing that no help could be expected from the outside and that Santa Anna would soon take the Alamo, Travis addressed his men, told them that they were fated to die for the cause of liberty and the freedom of Texas. Their only choice was in which way they would make the sacrifice. He outlined three procedures to them: first, rush the enemy, killing a few but being slaughtered themselves in the hand-to-hand fight by the overpowering Mexican force; second, to surrender, which would eventually result in their massacre by the Mexicans, or, third, to remain in the Alamo and defend it until the last man, thus giving the Texas army more time to form and likewise taking a greater toll among the Mexicans.

The third choice was the one taken by the men. Their fate was death and they faced it bravely, asking no quarter and giving none. The siege of the Alamo ended on the dawn of March 6, when its gallant defenders were put to the sword. But it was not an idle sacrifice that men like Travis and Davy Crockett and James Bowie made at the Alamo. It was a sacrifice on the altar of liberty.

Brave men and women still exist in America but their numbers are dwindling as are their followers. Too many leaders today would faint if they nicked themselves shaving their legs.

I will leave you with these quotes by Davy Crockett:
“You may all go to Hell, and I will go to Texas.”
“I would rather be beaten, and be a man, than to be elected and be a little puppy dog.”
“Whenever I had anything and saw a fellow being suffering, I was more anxious to relieve him than to benefit myself.”

Is Gene McVay the only being who remembers?

■■■■ Every Nation ■■■■

December 25, 2018

After Jesus was risen, He met with His Disciples in Galilee and told them: All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

▪▪▪▪

There are 195 nations and people in 176 nations have read Gene McVay on Guard blogs on WordPress.

Those 19 nations I have failed to penetrate are hard nuts to crack, so to speak.

The Gideons are banned in Afghanistan, Algeria, China, Comoros, Djibouti, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Maldives, Mauritania, Morocco, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Yemen.

Going into these nations and some others and teaching and baptizing them would be impossible but, with God, all things are possible.

2,000 years ought to be long enough to fulfill the Great Commission since men walked on the Moon 40 years ago.

Jesus didn’t command us to walk on the Moon or freak out about global warming!

Jesus made no mention of building giant church buildings or cathedrals!

John the Baptist didn’t have a grand office in a palacial church.

Can we all get together and get serious about doing what Jesus told us to do?

Expedition to The Garden of Eden

December 22, 2018

If Gene McVay could put together an expedition to one place on Earth, it would be to the remnants of The Garden of Eden. I was pretty sure I knew the location of the garden long before I studied the geography.

I realized that places are very important to God. The great King David was chosen by God to rule Israel when he was a young boy and did establish Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and rule for about 40 years. David was born in Bethlehem and Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

Abraham was commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac and was prepared to sacrifice Isaac when he was stopped. I am sure the location where the sacrifice was to take placed is the exact same place where Jesus was crucified almost 2,000 years later. Some think the Temple was built there but the Temple was built on a thrashing floor and could be rebuilt today without disturbing any nearby structures. No part of the old fortress named after Cleopatra’s boyfriend is the Holy Temple.

So it is my opinion that human life began in The Garden of Eden when God created Adam and Eve during 4004 BC or 6,022 years ago. If some scholar tells you man did something before 6,022 years ago they would be mistaken. I believe God created a lot of things before 4004 BC including the Angels, the universe, prehistoric animals and things we will learn about during eternity but not one single human.

Some 4,366 years ago in 2348 BC, a young 600 year old man built an Ark and saved eight humans and all the verities of animals from the Great Flood. If some scholar tells you something happened before 2348 BC, you should know that was before the flood.

The flood can be confusing to some people unless you read and comprehend what the Bible says. The flood lasted about a year. Some say 371 days but I won’t quibble.

The Bible story goes like this, “The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible.

After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth. Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground. But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark. He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth. He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.

By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry. By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.”

If you just skim over the story it might not make sense to you. You see, when the Ark rested it was long before the tops of the mountains could be seen. The King James Version makes it clearer, “the ark rested … upon the mountains of Ararat.” That means the Ark was not moving or tossing upon the water that covered the whole earth. As the water receded Noah could clearly see where he was located amid the mountains of Ararat. Did you catch that? Not Mount Ararat but the mountains of Ararat. The top of a 16,854 foot mountain is not a good place to disembark from the Ark.

When the Ark finally ended up on dry land, I am absolutely convinced that is was in the exact same location as The Garden of Eden but 1,656 years after the garden had been created and long after it had been off limits to humans. During 2347 BC when the whole earth was populated with only 8 people, The Garden of Eden had spent a year submerged and probably had been ravaged by mudslides but The Garden of Eden is The Garden of Eden.

If you want to do some population studies, calculate how many people can be produced in 4,367 years starting with four couples.  This alone should convince you that the story that modern man evolved 50,000 years ago would make the population of the Earth in the trillions.

So how do we know where The Garden of Eden was located? That should even be very simple for even the dumbest scholars if they would bother to read the Holy Bible.

We know that a river flowed out of the garden and then that river was divided and became four rivers. Two of those rivers are recognizable today, the Tigress and the Euphrates. There is only one way a river can flow out of a garden and that would be from a spring in the garden. If you can find the source of the Euphrates and the source of the source, that would be The Garden of Eden.

Turns out the source of the Euphrates and likely the source of the Tigress before the flood is the Murat River also known as the Eastern Euphrates. The source of the Murat River is northeast of lake Van not far from Mount Ararat and very close to Noah’s Ark National Park in Eastern Turkey. That is where the remains of Noah’s Ark reside, probably after sliding some distance from the original location. There’s not much left of the ark after 4,365 years.

Lake Van is the largest lake in Turkey and is also the world’s largest endorheic lake. That means having no outlet. Since Lake Van is 5,380 feet high, Noah’s Ark and The Garden of Eden would likely be around 7,000 feet elevation. There are harsh winters in the area but Lake Van almost never freezes because of the salt content.

The photo of Lake Van is Akdamar Island and the Holy Cross Cathedral, a 10th-century Armenian church and monastic complex.

If I am correct and almost all the scholars are wrong, The Garden of Eden is close to Noah’s Ark National Park and so are two trees, The Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

In case you think The Tree of Life may be dead, it is mentioned three times in the Book of Revelation.

In Revelation 2:7
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

And twice In Revelation 22
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Will you listen to the Apostle John? Jesus looked down from the cross and made John responsible for His mother. Jesus trusted John and that’s good enough for me.
