I get e-mail from Judicial Watch; yet as with so many other entities, they act as if the nation revolves around EST.  I’m on PST, so this 3 hr time difference prevents me from ever watching programs they’re promoting via my mail.  The latest disappointment- a veteran being prosecuted for merely posting two small U.S. flags on VA property.

This is the excerpt from my mail:

“We wanted to let you know about the following media appearances…

Judicial Watch defense attorney Robert Patrick Sticht and client Robert L. Rosebrock will appear on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on the Fox News Channel in the 7 am ET hour tomorrow, Saturday, March 4, 2017, to discuss Judicial Watch’s and Robert Sticht’s representation of Rosebrock, a Vietnam-era veteran who faces federal criminal charges for displaying two four by six inch American flags outside a Veterans Affairs’ fence on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016.”

A Tribute to Lt. Col. John J. Nolan

This week, we wanted to share a tribute to a member of the 345th Bomb Group by Nebraska senator Deb Fischer. After World War II ended, Lt. Col. John J. Nolan stayed in the air force, looking to make a positive impact on the lives of other pilots. He had his own brush with death on August 15, 1944 when a fellow pilot’s B-25 hit his own, nearly causing it to crash. As you will read below, Nolan led a productive and interesting life after returning to the States.

“Senator Fischer’s tribute: Mr. President, I rise to honor a Nebraskan who was recently interred at Arlington National Cemetery. Lt. Col. John J. Nolan of Lincoln, NE, was a U.S. Air Force pilot who deserves our respect and gratitude. After the bombing at Pearl Harbor, he gave up a football scholarship at Temple University to enlist in the Army Air Corps in 1943.

During World War II, John was a B-25 aircraft commander with the heralded Air Apaches, 345th Bombardment Group, assigned to the Fifth Air Force operating in the Southwest Pacific.

In this capacity, he flew low-level strafing missions in specially configured B-25s with eight .50-caliber machine guns that were controlled by pilots. He flew in the Black Sunday raid on Hollandia, New Guinea, on April 16, 1944. This raid became the worst operational loss ever suffered by the Fifth Air Force in a single day. [IHRA note: read more about Black Sunday here.]

Following World War II, the Air Force realized more pilots had been lost on instruments than in actual combat. In response, the Instrument Pilot Instruction School was created. John was one of the initial cadre of pilots tasked with providing standardized instrument procedures, techniques, and training methods. These pilots were also required to test and evaluate flight instruments in adverse weather conditions. During this period, he became the B-25 high-time pilot for the entire U.S. Air Force.

John also wrote a substantial part of the instrument flying guidelines, known as Air Force Manual 51-37. Many pilots owe their lives to this manual. As a matter of fact, when his two sons went through pilot training in 1967 and 1973, respectively, his instructions were still in the manual.

John transitioned to F-86s as a part of the Air Force’s newly created All Weather Interceptors. He also served in Japan during the Korean war.

In the 1960s, when commercial aviation was converting to jet-powered aircraft and entering into military airspace at high altitudes, John was assigned to Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base, known as Air Defense Command. He became the Air Force liaison to the FAA Central Region, and he was tasked with developing and coordinating procedures to ensure safe arrival and departures within this shared airspace. In this capacity, John was also responsible for maintaining military readiness and operational capabilities.

Upon his retirement in October 1963, John was chosen to serve as the Midwest recruiter for the Air Force Academy.

John dedicated his entire life to his beloved U.S. Air Force. Not only did he serve honorably, John was also an integral participant in so many of the milestones that are now a part of Air Force history.

John never lost his love of flight. He continued to fly well into his late eighties in his restored Fairchild PT 19/26, which is the same aircraft he initially learned to fly in as a cadet in the Army Air Corps.

Lt. Col. John Nolan’s entire life was for God and country. He married Marie Di Giambattista on January 6, 1944, before he was assigned overseas. Together, they raised four children. Marie sacrificed much, as so many of our military families experience today, moving 23 times in John’s 20-year career. They were married 71 years. Only 27 days after Marie passed, John died this past July 3, 2015, at the age of 94.

We owe a debt of gratitude to John Nolan and his family. He led an extraordinary life at a time when our country needed people like him the most. Through all of this, he remained humble. We will never forget his sacrifices and patriotism.

“At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”  Abraham Lincoln

America: Imagine the World Without Her

 

Last nights election mirrored the Kennedy/Nixon elections on Nov 8, 1960.

From Wikipedia:

(most links and attributions disabled)

The United States presidential election of 1960 was the 44th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 8, 1960. The Republican Party nominated incumbent Vice President Richard Nixon, while the Democratic Party nominated John F. Kennedy, U.S. Senator from Massachusetts. The incumbent President, Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, was not eligible for re-election after being elected the maximum two times allowed by the Twenty-second Amendment; he was the first President affected by that amendment. This was the first presidential election in which voters in Alaska and Hawaii were able to participate, as both had become states in 1959.

Kennedy received 112,827 (0.17%) more votes than Nixon nationwide and although Nixon won the popular vote contest in more individual states (26 to 22),[2] Kennedy won a 303 to 219 Electoral College victory.

Note – Over 68 million votes were cast in that election.

Trump’s electoral vote victory – 306 to Clinton’s 232 [California and its 55 votes were neutralized.  Hurray!]

On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record.  The list was derived from researcher Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.”  These principles are well worth revisiting today in order to gain insights into the thinking and strategies of much of our so-called liberal elite:

1.  U.S. should accept coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2.  U.S. should be willing to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.  [Note: These encapsulate the Kennan Doctrine, which advocated for the “containment” of communism. Establishment figures supporting the amoral containment policy at least implicitly worked with the communists in scaring the wits out of the American people concerning atomic war. President Ronald Reagan undid the doctrine when he took an aggressive stand against the Evil Empire by backing freedom fighters from around the world that were struggling against the left-wing communist jackboot.  As a result, the Soviet Union and its satellites imploded, a considerable and unexpected setback to the international communist edifice.]

3.  Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the U.S. would be a demonstration of “moral strength.”  [Note: The nuclear freeze advocates supported a freeze on American nuclear development only.  Rarely were Soviet nukes or those of other nations mentioned in their self-righteous tirades. The same advocates now call for reducing American military might, claiming that there is something immoral about America preserving its military pre-eminence in the world.]

4.  Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. [Note: Today, there are calls to end the embargo on the slave island of Cuba, there were complaints about the embargo against Iraq, and the U.S., not Saddam Hussein, was blamed for the suffering of the Iraqi people. Would they have advocated for free trade with Hitler and his National Socialist regime?]

5.  Extend long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6.  Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. [Note: Such aid and trade over decades contributed greatly to the left-wing communist liquidation of over 100 million people worldwide, according to the well-documented “Black Book of Communism.” This aid and trade marks a shameful chapter in American history.  Without the aid and trade, the left-wing international communist behemoth would have imploded on its own rot a lot sooner and umpteen millions would have been saved from poverty, misery, starvation and death.]

7.  Grant recognition of Red China and admission of Red China to the U.N.  [Note: Not only did President Jimmy Carter fulfill this goal but he also betrayed America’s allies in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Iran, Afghanistan, Angola and elsewhere.]

8.  Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9.  Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the U.S. has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10.  Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11.  Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.  [Note: There are still American intellectuals, and elected members of Congress, who dream of an eventual one world government and who view the U.N., founded by communists such as Alger Hiss, the first secretary-general, as the instrument to bring this about. World government was also the dream of Adolf Hitler and J.V. Stalin.  World government was the dream of Osama bin Laden and the 9/11 hijackers.]

12.  Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. [Note: While the idea of banning any political party runs contrary to notions of American freedom and liberty, notions that are the exact opposite of those held by the left-wing communists themselves, nevertheless these goals sought to undermine the constitutional obligation of Congress to investigate subversion. The weakening of our government’s ability to conduct such investigations led to the attack of 9/11.]

13.  Do away with loyalty oaths. [Note: It is entirely proper and appropriate for our government to expect employees, paid by the American taxpayer, to take an oath of loyalty.]

14.  Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15.  Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S.  [Note: In his book, “Reagan’s War,” Peter Schweizer demonstrates the astonishing degree to which communists and communist sympathizers have penetrated the Democratic Party.  In his book, Schweizer writes about the presidential election of 1979.]

16.  Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights. [Note: This strategy goes back to the founding of the American Civil Liberties Union by Fabian Socialists Roger Baldwin and John Dewey and Communists William Z. Foster and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn among others.]

17.  Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18.  Gain control of all student newspapers.

19.  Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations that are under Communist attack. [Note: The success of these goals, from a communist perspective, is obvious. Is there any doubt this is so?]

20.  Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21.  Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.

22.  Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings,” substituting shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.

23.  Control art critics and directors of art museums. ” Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24.  Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25.  Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.  [Note: This is the Gramscian agenda of the “long march through the institutions” spelled out explicitly: gradual takeover of the “means of communication” and then using those vehicles to debauch the culture and weaken the will of the individual to resist.]

26.  Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.” [Note: Today those few who still have the courage to advocate public morality are denounced and viciously attacked. Most Americans are entirely unwitting regarding the motives behind this agenda.]

27.  Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion.

Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.” [Note: This has been largely accomplished through the communist infiltration of the National Council of Churches, Conservative and Reform Judaism, and the Catholic seminaries.]

28.  Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state”

29.  Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30.  Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31.  Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. [Note: Obliterating the American past, with its antecedents in principles of freedom, liberty and private ownership is a major goal of the communists then and now.]

32.  Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33.  Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34.  Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35.  Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36.  Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37.  Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38.  Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat. [Note: The Soviets used to send “social misfits” and those deemed politically incorrect to massive mental institutions called gulags. The Red Chinese call them laogai. Hitler called them concentration camps.]

39.  Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose communist goals. [Note: Psychiatry remains a bulwark of the communist agenda of fostering self-criticism and docility.]

40.  Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. [Note: Done! The sovereign family is the single most powerful obstacle to authoritarian control.]

41.  Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. [Note: Outcome-based education, values clarification or whatever they’re calling it this year.]

42.  Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems. [Note: This describes the dialectical fostering of group consciousness and conflict, which furthers the interests of authoritarianism.]

43.  Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44.  Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45.  Repeal the Connally Reservation so the U.S. cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems.  Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

The impact of one godly woman went far beyond her little book compiled for her son, a paratrooper who was killed during the Normandy invasion.  During World War II, on her own initiative and at her own personal expense, Mrs. Tullidge voluntarily duplicated and mailed to over 300,000 soldiers the booklet entitled, ‘A Paratrooper’s Faith.’

Excerpt –

Tucked somewhere on his body was a small blue booklet.  It was complied by his mother, Anne Archer Hogshead Tullidge, so that he might “receive an inspiration and help from. . .thoughts of great minds and souls of the past and present.”

He called it the “little book.” She later titled it A Paratrooper’s Faith. It was Anne’s hope that “. . .in the lonely, anxious and trying experiences he was passing through, a few moments reading of these might give him hope and strength.”²

It is best that we (better late than never) finally lean on God and not on our own understanding.

The majority of individuals which became known as “The Greatest Generation” were anywhere from about 5 years old to their mid twenties when the Great Depression hit, knew none of the very basic things we take for granted, even simple things like flush toilets, or electricity for lighting their homes.

Big cities had horse drawn deliveries of ice for home ice boxes [predating electric refrigerators to preserve food]   As for buying food?

Mother would select a chicken from an open market, where the vendor would wring its neck; the process of preparing it for the evening meal involved plucking out the feathers, chopping off the head and feet, and gutting it.

The mass produced food we obtain from the grocers in their pristine plastic packages, started in the early 60’s.  See Food INC.

Technology has blurred the lines between fantasy and reality; we’re facing a quantum leap forward in man’s knowledge, without the wisdom or moral fiber needed to use it wisely, and not do things simply because we can.

Those folks who gave up so much, to keep the world from falling into a dark pit of Fascism, are all but gone.  The life experiences of those who survived the second world war need to be kept at the forefront, not relegated to the bad cliff notes that common core “education” textbooks have made of them.
