The Gene McVay History of Gold

July 21, 2016

It appears to me that the talking heads on Business TV shows and big Wall Street Traders don’t just advise against owning gold, they also seem to passionately hate gold. Perhaps it is because they can’t manipulate the price of gold as easily as they run the stock market up and down?

gold

Other humans, on the other hand, have had Gold Fever since the beginning of time. The great Prophet Ezekiel says in 28:4, “By your wisdom and your understanding you have made wealth for yourself, and have gathered gold and silver into your treasuries.”

Egyptians used gold to create funeral masks for their pharaohs. The Incas called it the “Sweat of the sun.” It is used to make medals for the best athletes in the world. It symbolizes wealth and riches. Over the centuries, gold has become important to humans. The heavy metal has cultural and economic meaning for human civilizations around the world.

The materials assembled for the tabernacle are described in detail in Exodus 35-38 and summarized in Exodus 38:21-30. The total quantity of gold collected was approximately one ton; of silver, 3-3/4 tons; and of bronze, 2-1/2 tons. That’s $40 million worth of gold at today’s prices and $2.5 million worth of silver. The golden lampstand in the tabernacle weighed a talent and would today be worth over two million dollars for its gold content alone. Of course, any item from the Temple would be priceless.

When Solomon built the first temple, David had already amassed the materials. These materials included 100,000 talents of gold and 1,000,000 talents of silver. The gold alone comes to over $220 billion. Notice, Solomon did not use Treasury Bonds, Exchange-Traded Funds or paper money in the Temple. The gold was not paper gold but the heavy 24 karat yellow kind. The kind the people of Pompeii carried along with the keys to their homes as they fled the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Large quantities of gold and silver was taken in Asia by Alexander the Great: 2,600 talents of gold and 600 talents of silver from Damascus, 50,000 talents of gold and 40,000 talents of uncoined gold and silver from Susa and from Persepolis 120,000 talents of gold.

When Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Wise Men brought Him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh

The total amount of gold mined and stockpiled in the entire world up to the present time totals about 88,000 tons. If this gold were collected together its volume would be that of a cube 54 feet on a side. In other words, all the gold in the world could easily fit in two Olympic-sized swimming pools. One trillion dollars in $100 bills would take five such swimming pools. Our national debt would require 90 swimming pools. Add our unfunded obligations and you’ll need almost a thousand swimming pools. If the Dollar is devalued like the currency of many other countries, you will need the Pacific Ocean to hold all the $100 bills needed to pay for our obligations.

After all of that, all the gold will still fit easily into just two swimming pools.

The lure of gold has had a major impact on the course of history in the United States. When gold was found in California in 1848, it triggered a movement called the gold rush. Thousands of settlers moved west hoping to find gold and become rich. In total, 300,000 people came from all over the world to California during the gold rush. Before the gold rush, San Francisco was a tiny town of only 200 people. By the end of the gold rush in 1870, San Francisco’s population had grown to 150,000 people.

I was recently in Alaska and saw the trails used by Klondikers on their way to the gold fields in the Youkon. The trip was long, arduous, and cold. Klondikers had to walk most of the way, using either pack animals or sleds to carry hundreds of pounds of supplies. The Northwest Mounted Police in Canada required that all Klondikers bring a year’s worth of supplies with them. Even so, starvation and malnutrition were serious problems along the trail. The story of the Klondiker who boiled his boots to drink the broth was widely reported, and may well have been true. Cold was another serious problem along the trail. Winter temperatures in the mountains of northern British Columbia and the Yukon were normally -20 degrees F., and temperatures of -50 degrees F. were not unheard of. Tents were usually the warmest shelter a Klondiker could hope for.

An even larger problem was the trails themselves. Klondikers had two choices: the Chilkoot Trail or the White Pass Trail. The White Pass Trail originated in Skagway, Alaska. Crooks in Skagway fleeced Klondikers in every way imaginable. One way was a telegraph scam where crooks put up poles and wires, but they weren’t actually connected to anything. Then they took cash from Klondikers eager to wire home. The Chilkoot Trail, on the other hand, wasn’t a better option, although it had fewer outlaws. It was steeper than the White Pass Trail, and few were fully prepared for how difficult it was. Many suffered malnutrition and/or died along the trails. Some Klondikers became sick or died from eating the meat of the dead horses found on the White Pass Trail, and it soon became known as the “Dead Horse Trail”. Men reportedly went insane on the trail. It is possible that this diet (or lack thereof) contributed to the reports of insanity.

With the influx of the 30,000 who did make it over the trails, Dawson temporarily became the largest city north of San Francisco. It was no longer a tent city, but a bonafide city, with more amenities than one might imagine. Dawson had fire hydrants on the streets, and was the first city in western Canada to have electric lights. People also felt safe in Dawson. The Northwest Mounted Police kept order in Canada, and nefarious characters were not allowed entry. The growth of Dawson was largely responsible for the creation of the Yukon Territory as a new Canadian Province on June 13, 1898.

The Klondike Kings quickly became very rich. It is estimated that over one billion dollars worth of gold was found, adjusted to late 20th century standards. Others found their fame and fortune in different manners. Jack London became well-known by writing of his experiences in the Klondike. Fred Trump, grandfather Donald Trump, earned his fortune running the Arctic Restaurant and Hotel in Bennett, British Columbia, along the Chilkoot Trail. Nor were the successful Klondikers limited to men. Like Fred Trump, Belinda Mulroney became wealthy by running a hotel and selling supplies. Many women found their riches running dance halls. Martha Black bought a sawmill and went on to become Canada’s second female Member of Parliament. Even some of those who didn’t travel to the Klondike managed to get rich from the Gold Rush. Over 1,000 miles away, Seattle businesses made over $1 million (not adjusted) selling the needed food and supplies for the trip to the gold fields. Seattle mayor W.D. Wood should have stayed in Seattle and taken advantage of the wealth the Klondikers brought to the city. Instead, he resigned his post as mayor and set off for the Yukon. He was one of the many who turned back.

Unfortunately for those who did make it as far as the Klondike, few found the hoped-for riches. By the time the masses arrived, all the creeks had been claimed, and the new arrivals found they had to work for the Klondike Kings, rather than for themselves. The pay was not bad, ranging from $1 to $10 per day, but this was not what the Klondikers had made the trip for. Many Klondikers never recouped the cost of the trip, which averaged $1200 (not adjusted). Nevertheless, when gold was discovered at Nome, Alaska in 1899, few of these Klondikers stopped to think about what they had just experienced. At the first sign of gold, much of Dawson up and left for Nome, where most of the gold-seekers once again lost out on finding fame and fortune.

In July 2001, the price of Gold was $357 an ounce; what will be the price of Gold in 2021? What will a dollar buy in 2021? Will Americans be crawling through the hole in the fence or swimming the Rio Grande to find work in Mexico?

GoldCert

I don’t know, do you? How about the talking heads who know how to make you rich but since they’re still working, apparently they don’t know how to make themselves rich? The bottom line is simple, do your own due diligence and decide if you want to own magic beans or what.

Save America from Speaker Ryan & Congress

June 7, 2016

pr3

Today, Speaker Paul Ryan will start detailing policy prescriptions that are part of HIS vision that he says will show Americans what the party is for, rather than focusing on what it’s against.

Why am I skeptical about Paul Ryan doing anything except criticizing Donald Trump for not being like Paul Ryan and using his Power of the Purse to give Obama, Reid & Pelosi everything they could possible want?

Ryan and his Lawyer Lobbyist wife who attended Wellesley College like Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright, Diane Sawyer and Cokie Roberts have amassed a fortune in the area of ten million dollars. That’s quite a feat but what has Ryan done for America?

Ryan has been sucking on the sweet flowing breast of the government for 17 years as a Congressman and has held the most powerful positions in that body including Speaker, Chairman of Ways and Means and Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

pr2

When Ryan swore to uphold and defend the Constitution in 1999, the National Debt stood at $5.6 trillion. A year after Ryan became Budget Chairman; the National Debt soared above $15 trillion for the first time in History. It seems Ryan and his Cartel could not find ANYTHING to cut except the United States Armed Forces and Veteran’s Benefits?

The way Congress allowed our Armed Forces to become provocatively weak represents treason in my mind!

jr

I have NEVER heard one word of criticism flow from Ryan’s lips about President Obama or Obama’s enablers, the United States Congress.

I did hear Speaker Ryan criticize the presumptive Republican Nominee for President many times including most recently for standing up to the activist La Raza anti-Trump U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel. It is ironic that a move is underway to oust another California Judge, the one who sparked outrage after he sentenced a former Stanford University swimmer to just six months in jail for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster outside a campus frat party.

The sentence Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky imposed on Brock Turner, 20, has been blasted by the victim and called a “slap on the wrist” by the San Jose Mercury News.

Of course, that is a criminal matter and Curiel is making hay with the civil suit Trump refuses to settle out of Court. The wealthy and huge companies are often sued because they have deep pockets and are inclined to settle rather than be drug through the mud in a public trial. I remember when everybody was suing aircraft manufacturers because they readily settled for $100,000 when a pilot simply ran out of gas and crashed. The result of not fighting such suits resulted in more and more litigation with the end result of almost destroying general aviation. An aircraft I bought for $11,000 in 1970 would cost over $350,000 today.

Donald Trump knows that if he settles frivolous lawsuits, it will simply result in more and more frivolous lawsuits. The usual suspects: Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, the Washington Post and New York Times never pass up an opportunity to pummel The Donald for standing up for his rights. Most Americans lack the chutzpah to take on a crooked judge. The very idea that a judge could be crooked seems farfetched to most Americans.

We’d like to think our justices and judges are defined by respect, duty and impartiality. But behind that iconic black robe isn’t always a tireless drive to uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States. Some of the most revered judges are worse than the criminals they should be sentencing. I will mention a couple corrupt judges who will make you question your faith in the legal system but there are so many more!

May I remind you about Judge Mark Ciavarella’s Kids For Cash Scheme? Nicknamed “Mr. Zero Tolerance”, Ciavarella was a big supporter of harsh sentences…for kids. Ciavarella sent thousand of children to a local detention center during his tenure in Luzerne County, PA. Think the kids deserved it? Listen to this: Ciavarella sent an 11-year-old to juvenile detention for almost two years after the kid took his mom’s car for a ride down the block. He also sent a 15-year-old to the same detention facility for mocking her assistant principal on social media and gave a 17-year-old first offender five months for helping steal a DVD. The judge got kickbacks from the facility where he sent those kids. No wonder the hearings often lasted only two minutes, Ciavarella got up to a million dollars for putting hundreds of innocent children behind bars. The courts wised up to his plans, and eventually sentenced Mr. Zero Tolerance to 27 years in prison. Following his sentencing, nearly 4,000 of Ciavarella’s previous convictions were overturned. Too little, too late if you ask Gene McVay!

Then there is Judge Thomas J. Maloney from the infamous Cook County. Maloney and numerous fellow Cook County judges were the focus of an investigation named Operation Greylord. The operation was a joint investigation by the FBI, IRS, USPS and the Illinois State Police to track down corrupt judges. Don’t worry, NOBODY is about to do anything these days about corrupt judges!

Judge Maloney was working his magic in high-profile murder cases. In exchange for rigging murder cases Maloney got over $100,000 in bribes. Maloney let mafia members, murderers and gangsters walk free, as long as he got his “fee.” To this day Maloney is listed as “one of the worst judges in history.” He was convicted of racketeering extortion and obstructing justice.

I could go on and on but YOU have Google. Do I have to spoon feed everybody?

PR4

What Ryan is doing today is paving the way to combat President Trump and maintain the status quo in Congress that brought America to the brink of total collapse. Yes, Republican Leaders love to blame President Obama for America’s sorry state of affairs and too many Americans fall for Ryan’s pompous blather. Do you remember that the Democrats did not need any Republicans to pass the Anything But Affordable Care Act? However, the Republicans could have stopped Obamacare in its tracks, especially when Obamacare resulted in the Democrats losing both the Senate and House. If Ryan and Boehner were half as manly as Nancy Pelosi, they would have used the power of the purse like a brick wall to stop Obama.

pr1

So here we stand, We the People and Donald Trump against the world and against Ryan, Romney, the Bushes and 100% of the crooked media. It shouldn’t be much of a challenge!

INSIDE THE FOX NEWS – TRUMP WAR

September 27, 2015

FoxWar

I was surfing through the TV channels this morning when Fox News announced a brand new poll. I figured this was some anti-Trump Poll so I paused to watch. Sure enough, it was a Voodoo Poll, something about favorability. Fox had their pollster hatchet man Frank Luntz spin his new masterpiece. Working without his usual handpicked group form the hood, Luntz explained how their malleable chosen ones are so well liked that after the next debate they could rocket right to the top including Carly and Marco.

I certainly did not expect Fox to show a real poll during their War against Trump but their grasping at straws provided some amusement for me. I can see the desperation on their faces and the hatred I have seen in a young girl toward another girl who stole her boyfriend. The kind of irreconcilable split that cannot heal in a decade, permeates the so-called fair and balanced network and is eating away at its very fiber.

FoxBT

If you are watching Fox News you are watching a network slipping into oblivion. The average age of the Fox News audience is 74 years old and for the O’Reilly Factor the average age jumps to 79 as he tries to sell his books and pander to the elderly. I wonder exactly how much information in his books was actually written by O’Reilly?

FoxO

The following comes from CONSERVAPEDIA, I wish I could take credit for it but I cannot:

“The Fox News Channel heavily promotes RINO Backers — commentators who may appear to be conservative but side with RINOs just when it matters most. In the first major 2016 presidential debate, feminist Megyn Kelly of Fox News ambushed Donald Trump with irrelevant, out-of-context quotations to make it appear that he was somehow anti-women. Additional examples on Fox News include Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Karl Rove, and Rush Limbaugh, who savaged Todd Akin for making a pro-life statement pointing out that pregnancy from rape is rare due to feminine biology. The Fox News Channel gave Karl Rove a platform to raise money against pro-life Republican candidates.

Even pundit Sarah Palin is too conservative for Fox News Channel, as when it canceled some of her interviews at a key political moment in August 2012 and then refused to renew her contract at the end of 2012. Fox negotiated a new contract five months later but generally pushed her off the air.

The Fox News Channel heavily favors neoconservatives and is particularly weak in criticizing the homosexual agenda and abortion. The Fox News Channel often helps elect less conservative Republicans, as when it repeatedly featured and promoted John McCain and Chris Christie while excluding their more conservative primary opponents. It drifted further from the conservative movement by petulantly declaring that conservative Newt Gingrich would not be accepted back.”

A10Blog

So, you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool ALL of the people ALL of the time! That is why I am countering Fox News Voodoo Polls with this compilation of all 163 major polls that shows the Fox News nemesis doubling his next closest rival.

How Long will you remain Uninformed about McCain?

September 20, 2015

FoxBT

Those of us who know the history of Islam from the time Muhammad fled Mecca to avoid an assassination plot and know the full record of John McCain’s collaboration with the enemy, grimace when we hear these people open their mouths. Millions have heard President Obama quote the “Holy Quran” and accidentally mention his Muslim faith. Do these Fox News talking heads live under a rock?

The whole Middle East was Christian for hundreds of years before Islam gobbled it up country by country. It is said that Muhammad himself began the tradition of beheading people by lopping off 54 heads. From the very beginning, Muslims gave infidels three choices, convert to Islam, pay a tax to Islam or die. Arabs were only given two choices, convert or die. That is why there are no non Muslim Arabs today. Can any of these brilliant talking heads EXPLAIN to me the difference between Islam and radical Islam? They cannot because there is no difference, period. Our very first battle after becoming a nation was with the Muslim Barbary Pirates on the Shores of Tripoli.  The Islamic plan for world domination is an open book for ANYBODY, even talking heads to read.

John McCain’s father was the Fleet Admiral in command of the Pacific Command including Vietnam. That’s why McCain was treated like royalty in the Navy. He arrived at the United States Naval Academy on a red carpet and basically dared them to flunk him out. Of course, nobody at Annapolis had the guts to flunk out the son of a Four Star Admiral. McCain graduated 894th out of 899 graduates. Typically about 30% of Annapolis grads become Navy and Marine pilots but only the cream of the crop get to fly jet fighters. Clearly, McCain wrote his own ticket as he checked out in fighters.  McCain’s father was not a shining star at the academy either but he graduated 19 from the bottom. At one point, McCain’s father had so many demerits he was at risk of not graduating; his partying and drinking was especially dangerous as it was taking place during Prohibition. Like father, like son except son never made Admiral.McCainA

McCain’s flying career was one disaster after another. McCain’s first crash was due to pilot error, and not, as McCain has stated, an engine failure. Then there was the 1967 USS Forrestal disaster that killed 134 and injured 161. It was the worst carrier fire since WWII and official documents differ from McCain’s own, widely accepted recollection. I have heard that McCain’s actions in doing a Hot Start cooked off the weapons on an aircraft behind his. It is not disputed that his aircraft was destroyed as he fled the deck without helping others. McCain admitted to “daredevil clowning” in an accident that damaged his aircraft but did not result in a crash. McCain crashed another aircraft when the engine failed, probably not his fault and he lost his jet when he was shot down over Hanoi. Some say he was flying too low when hit by anti-aircraft fire.

McCainH

Many believe McCain was tortured by the enemy and suffered broken bones but that is simply not the case. When McCain ejected he broke a leg and an arm. The North Vietnamese had more of their own wounded than they could take care of so young McCain had to do some fast talking when he was captured. Somehow the Viet Cong learned immediately that McCain was the son of a top Admiral and would cooperate. McCain was taken to the best hospital in Hanoi for treatment and rehabilitation. No other POW was ever treated at that hospital.

McCainNP

It is widely reported that McCain made more than 32 propaganda tapes for the enemy and was interrogated by both Viet Cong and Soviet Agents. McCain denies that Soviets were present which contradicts what other POWs and the Vietnamese have said. Tracy E. Usry was a Special Investigator for the minority (Republican) staff on the select committee looking into the POW situation. McCain served on the committee and had a testy exchange with Usry in 1991 when the investigator testified that American POWs in Vietnam were interrogated by Soviet officers. McCain denied this even though witnesses ranging from fellow POWs to Vietnamese and Soviet veterans contradicted McCain. In 1999, as McCain was prepping for his first presidential run, a U.S. Veteran Dispatch, which may be the first to label McCain a “Manchurian Candidate” accused McCain of “declar[ing] his own personal war” on POW/MIA activists, including Ross Perot. It also accuses McCain of lobbying to have Usry and other investigators fired after the hearings. McCain, then completing his first term as a senator, had seemingly flip-flopped from understandable hatred of the Vietnamese Communists to pushing for improved relations while denigrating POW/MIA activists. McCain was known as the Hanoi Songbird by both his fellow POWs and the prison guards.

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

Almost as striking is the manner in which the mainstream press has shied from reporting the POW story and McCain’s role in it, even as the Republican Party made McCain’s military service the focus of his presidential campaign. Reporters who had covered the Vietnam War turned their heads and walked in other directions. McCain doesn’t talk about the missing men, and the press never asks him about them.

POWMIA

The sum of the secrets McCain has sought to hide is not small. There exists a telling mass of official documents, radio intercepts, witness depositions, satellite photos of rescue symbols that pilots were trained to use, electronic messages from the ground containing the individual code numbers given to airmen, a rescue mission by a special forces unit that was aborted twice by Washington—and even sworn testimony by two Defense secretaries that “men were left behind.” This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number—the documents indicate probably hundreds—of the U.S. prisoners held by Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

One of the sharpest critics of the Pentagon’s performance was an insider, Air Force Lt. Gen. Eugene Tighe, who headed the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during the 1970s. He openly challenged the Pentagon’s position that no live prisoners existed, saying that the evidence proved otherwise. McCain was a bitter opponent of Tighe, who was eventually pushed into retirement.

Tighe

Included in the evidence that McCain and his government allies suppressed or sought to discredit is a transcript of a senior North Vietnamese general’s briefing of the Hanoi politburo, discovered in Soviet archives by an American scholar in 1993. The briefing took place only four months before the 1973 peace accords. The general, Tran Van Quang, told the politburo members that Hanoi was holding 1,205 American prisoners but would keep many of them at war’s end as leverage to ensure getting war reparations from Washington.

Throughout the Paris negotiations, the North Vietnamese tied the prisoner issue tightly to the issue of reparations. They were adamant in refusing to deal with them separately. Finally, in a Feb. 2, 1973 formal letter to Hanoi’s premier, Pham Van Dong, Nixon pledged $3.25 billion in “postwar reconstruction” aid “without any political conditions.” But he also attached to the letter a codicil that said the aid would be implemented by each party “in accordance with its own constitutional provisions.” That meant Congress would have to approve the appropriation, and Nixon and Kissinger knew well that Congress was in no mood to do so. The North Vietnamese, whether or not they immediately understood the double-talk in the letter, remained skeptical about the reparations promise being honored—and it never was. Hanoi thus appears to have held back prisoners—just as it had done when the French were defeated at Dien Bien Phu in 1954 and withdrew their forces from Vietnam. In that case, France paid ransoms for prisoners and brought them home.

Some Veterans sought criminal charges against McCain and worked hard to expose him all their lives. Nixon pardoned McCain for unspecified activities. Some say McCain designed the air defense system for Hanoi that destroyed 60 US aircraft?

McCainFriend

An early and critical McCain secrecy move involved 1990 legislation that started in the House of Representatives. A brief and simple document, it was called “the Truth Bill” and would have compelled complete transparency about prisoners and missing men. Its core sentence reads: “[The] head of each department or agency which holds or receives any records and information, including live-sighting reports, which have been correlated or possibly correlated to United States personnel listed as prisoner of war or missing in action from World War II, the Korean conflict and the Vietnam conflict, shall make available to the public all such records held or received by that department or agency.”

McCainV

Bitterly opposed by the Pentagon (and thus McCain), the bill went nowhere. Reintroduced the following year, it again disappeared. But a few months later, a new measure, known as “the McCain Bill,”suddenly appeared. By creating a bureaucratic maze from which only a fraction of the documents could emerge—only records that revealed no POW secrets—it turned the Truth Bill on its head. The McCain bill became law in 1991 and remains so today. So crushing to transparency are its provisions that it actually spells out for the Pentagon and other agencies several rationales, scenarios, and justifications for not releasing any information at all—even about prisoners discovered alive in captivity. Later that year, the Senate Select Committee was created, where Kerry and McCain ultimately worked together to bury evidence.

McCain was also instrumental in amending the Missing Service Personnel Act, which had been strengthened in 1995 by POW advocates to include criminal penalties, saying, “Any government official who knowingly and willfully withholds from the file of a missing person any information relating to the disappearance or whereabouts and status of a missing person shall be fined as provided in Title 18 or imprisoned not more than one year or both.” A year later, in a closed House-Senate conference on an unrelated military bill, McCain, at the behest of the Pentagon, attached a crippling amendment to the act, stripping out its only enforcement teeth, the criminal penalties, and reducing the obligations of commanders in the field to speedily search for missing men and to report the incidents to the Pentagon.

About the relaxation of POW/MIA obligations on commanders in the field, a public McCain memo said, “This transfers the bureaucracy involved out of the [battle] field to Washington.” He wrote that the original legislation, if left intact, “would accomplish nothing but create new jobs for lawyers and turn military commanders into clerks.”

McCain argued that keeping the criminal penalties would have made it impossible for the Pentagon to find staffers willing to work on POW/MIA matters. That’s an odd argument to make. Were staffers only “willing to work” if they were allowed to conceal POW records? By eviscerating the law, McCain gave his stamp of approval to the government policy of debunking the existence of live POWs.

McCainPOW

McCain has insisted again and again that all the evidence—documents, witnesses, satellite photos, two Pentagon chiefs’ sworn testimony, aborted rescue missions, ransom offers apparently scorned—has been woven together by unscrupulous deceivers to create an insidious and unpatriotic myth. He calls it the “bizarre rantings of the MIA hobbyists.” He has regularly vilified those who keep trying to pry out classified documents as “hoaxers,” “charlatans,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “dime-store Rambos.”

Some of McCain’s fellow captives at Hoa Lo prison in Hanoi didn’t share his views about prisoners left behind. Before he died of leukemia in 1999, retired Col. Ted Guy, a highly admired POW and one of the most dogged resisters in the camps, wrote an angry open letter to the senator in an MIA newsletter—a response to McCain’s stream of insults hurled at MIA activists. Guy wrote, “John, does this [the insults] include Senator Bob Smith [a New Hampshire Republican and activist on POW issues] and other concerned elected officials? Does this include the families of the missing where there is overwhelming evidence that their loved ones were ‘last known alive’? Does this include some of your fellow POWs?”

McCainVExports

It’s not clear whether the taped confession McCain gave to his captors to avoid further torture has played a role in his postwar behavior in the Senate. That confession was played endlessly over the prison loudspeaker system at Hoa Lo—to try to break down other prisoners—and was broadcast over Hanoi’s state radio. Reportedly, he confessed to being a war criminal who had bombed civilian targets. The Pentagon has a copy of the confession but will not release it. Also, no outsider has ever seen a non-redacted copy of the debriefing of McCain when he returned from captivity, which is classified but could be made public by McCain.

McCainVC

So why is the media so unaware or simply playing dumb about so many issues? There is no doubt that Russia has all the documents and videos about McCain’s traitorous activities. Had McCain become President he could have been held hostage to blackmail by Vietnam and Russia. Even as a Senator, is McCain overly nice to Russia and Vietnam as some of our POWs are surely still alive somewhere.  WHY IS INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM DEAD IN AMERICA?

Dirty History of McConnell and the RNC

September 3, 2015

TrumpPriebus

I hope one day the average Republican will be as alert as Donald Trump and yours truly. I know the exigencies of life demand most American’s full attention but it has allowed the Republican leaders to run afoul of their responsibilities to the American People. I would prefer that the RNC, Priebus, McConnell and Boehner sign a pledge that THEY will treat all Republican Candidates equal and then fully support the nominee.

The Republican leaders have declared WAR against conservatives and HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES:

When a conservative was leading in the polls against one of McConnell’s rubber stamp Senators, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, McConnell and a group of Senators including my own Senator, hatched a scheme to persuade black ministers to urge their Democratic congregations to vote in the Republican runoff election. The threat was that if they didn’t vote for Cochran the free stuff they were used to would be cut off. McConnell poured $50,000 into the effort and Cochran was narrowly reelected.

You see, we can’t have extremists nominated because, as Karl Rove says, they can’t be elected! Mitch McConnell was one of only TWO Republican Senators who voted with 100% of the Democrats to keep funding Planned Parenthood and their trafficking in aborted baby body parts. One other senator, Lindsey Graham, failed to vote which essentially was support for the McConnell and Democratic position. I ask you, who are the extremists?

Ken

Then there is one of my favorite conservative Republicans, Ken Cuccinelli. Ken was Attorney General of Virginia when he announced his candidacy for Governor in 2013. In a three way race with a Democrat, Republican and Libertarian, Cuccinelli was narrowly defeated by the Democrat. Conservatives rightfully blame the Republican Governors Association and the Republican National Committee for not putting enough money into the race. The Tea Party claims the establishment sold the Tea Party out again, just as it did during the government shutdown when MODERATE GOP SENATORS DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO STAND AND FIGHT OVER OBAMACARE.

Dede Scozzafava is the Poster Child of Republican Establishment leader’s gross malfeasance. The Republicans in the 23rd Congressional District of New York only had one choice for a candidate who supported Republican values and it was not the Republican nominee or the Democratic nominee.

CochranScozza

Many notable Republicans, including former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson, endorsed Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman rather than the Republican candidate because they deemed Scozzafava too liberal and ideologically indistinguishable from the Democrat. Scozzafava also drew strong opposition from the Tea Party movement.

Scozzafava voted for same-sex marriage in the New York State Assembly and she had also received an award from a Planned Parenthood affiliate in 2008. Scozzafava’s political positions included support for “card check” legislation, support for federal funding for abortion, support for President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package, and a refusal to rule out support for health care reform that included a “public option.”

Polls had Doug Hoffman in the lead and on a pathway leading to election as Congressman. Hoffman would have voted and caucused with the Republican Party and would have been a valuable conservative voice in the House. This scared the Republican establishment much more than electing the Democrat so they poured a million dollars into Scozzafava’s campaign just hours before she withdrew from the race and endorsed the Democrat. Scozzafave’s name was still on the ballot and the final vote was Democrat-73,137; Conservative-69,553; Republican-8,582.

Influential establishment Republicans have even aligned in groups and PACs like The Main Street Partnership and the Tuesday Group that represent moderate Republicans like Senators McCain, Mark Kirk and Susan Collins along with Dozens of Representatives. There is big money available for tax and spend Republicans and strong support from many deep pockets.

I know many Republicans are shocked that the Democrats get their way even with so-called Republicans controlling the House and Senate. Most Republicans do not watch the liberal news stations but if they did they would be shocked by who the regular guests are. The former National Republican Chairman Michael Steele is employed by MSNBC as a Regular Political Analyst. The Hanoi Songbird, John McCain is also a frequent guest on Lamestreem Media as is Reince Priebus, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell.

Donald Trump knows to what lengths the Establishment Liberal Republicans will go to defeat any conservative in favor of the John McCain’s, Mitt Romney’s and Bush family. The media from A to Z are willing confederates because they all want Liberals in the White House. Fox News is a top ten donor to the Clintons way above big unions. To hedge their bets the media feels more comfortable with a Liberal Republican nominee against a Liberal Democratic nominee. May I remind you that our worst spending spree in history started with George Bush and his Democratic House and Senate?

In conclusion, the vast majority of the American People are also known as the Silent Majority. We are also know by another word by Republican Establishment leaders, we are “Extremists” because we expect government to be small and efficient while allowing us to pursue happiness and enjoy freedom to earn a living and support our families as we choose. We may not swear to uphold the Constitution like our politicians do but we will die fighting for our Constitution while our Politicians and Judges thumb their noses at our precious founding document.

I know not what course others may take but as for me, I SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP.

Has America Lost Both Freedom and Security?

June 20, 2013

I hate to be the one to break this news to low information voters like Gretchen Carlson, Brian Kilmeade and Bill O’Reilly but, the United States no longer enjoys FREEDOM or SECURITY.

Arming Syrian Cannibals makes as much sense as giving F-16’s to Egypt? Americans are warned about visiting Egypt now!

What will we think of next, scrapping 1/3 of our nuclear weapons putting us at a disadvantage against Russia, North Korea and Iran?

Legalizing illegal aliens including about 20,000 from terrorist countries like Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Syria and Libya?

NSA knows what you’re wearing and eating but don’t know where those 20,000 illegal aliens are. NSA also don’t know and don’t care where the other 11 to 20 million illegals are. NSA don’t know where Russia’s missing suitcase nukes are hidden or the 20,000 missing Libyan surface-to-air missiles. NSA don’t know what happened to Saddam’s weapons. It looks to me like Saddam trucked his Chemical Weapons across the border to Syria in the middle of the night?

Our borders are not secure and building another great wall won’t help at all. It will only become a tourist attraction. How did that Maginot Line work for France? The FBI admits we’re using Drones in the United States but we certainly are not using them to secure our Borders and 92,000 miles of Coastline.

The sad story is that we are paying an exorbitant price for security but it is money down the drain. If those Russian Nukes are not already in the United States it is only because they don’t want them here. Those 20,000 invaders have not attacked yet because they are waiting to see how long it will take our government to destroy America with Political Correctness?

That warm fuzzy feeling you get when TSA strip searches grandmothers and pats down little girls may just be heartburn?
