  • Obama Administration Providing Aid to ISIS

    Coach is Right ^ | 10/25/14 | Jim Emerson
    The Daily Beast’s Jamie Dettmer revealed that American humanitarian aid has been going to ISIS. The terrorist groups are receiving food, medical supplies, clinics, and cash. The so-called humanitarian supplies were meant for rebels and displaced Syrians in refugee camps but wound up in the wrong hands. According to the logic of White House Mullah Barack and State Department Grand Vizier Kerry, aid will be provided to America’s enemies only after sending American airpower for the purpose of killing them. All of this will take place after sniping with them over twitter. This must be John (I was in Vietnam)...
  • Wings, Women, and War: Soviet Airwomen in World War II Combat

    10/25/2014 6:43:41 AM PDT · by wetphoenix · 11 replies
    Dr. Reina Pennington, Associate Professor of History Norwich University. The Soviet Union was the first nation to allow women pilots to fly combat missions. During World War II the Red Air Force formed three all-female units--grouped into separate fighter, dive bomber, and night bomber regiments--while also recruiting other women to fly with mostly male units. Their amazing story, fully recounted for the first time by Reina Pennington, honors a group of fearless and determined women whose exploits have not yet received the recognition they deserve. Pennington chronicles the creation, organization, and leadership of these regiments, as well as the experiences...

    S&W 5946 I would give long odds that it was a Smith and Wesson 5946 in 9mm.   They come with 15 round magazines.   I doubt that the RCMP used the politically correct 10 rounders. The 3953, above, is also issued, but it is more likely he had the 5946. The picture is from a discussion of the RCMP pistols on defensivecarry.com. Another source confirms that the Smith is the choice of the RCMP.  From Silvercore Firerams Training, BC(pdf): Smith & Wesson 5946 - The Side Arm of the RCMP Manufactured 1990 - 1999 A double-action-only (DAO) variant...

The GOP seriously needs treatment It has recently come to light that large caches of chemical and other banned weapons were found in Iraq, and that the Bush White House was fully aware of their existence but chose to suppress knowledge of their existence on the theory that they had lost the battle in the media and didn’t want to reopen those wounds.

    President Obama says he’s “shaken” by this week’s violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to offer support and “solidarity.” He vowed to “remain vigilant.” Too bad Obama didn’t show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim terrorists on our soil. And I’m not just talking about the “workplace violence” of jihadist Nidal Hasan, whose Koran-inspired Fort Hood rampage took the lives of 13 American servicemen and servicewomen and one unborn baby. An entire parade of infidel-hating fanatics targeted U.S. soldiers long...

Previously, Iran had taken advantage of the...

    What happened to Raul Castro's 'reforms'? Watchdog/advocacy group 'The Cuban Commission for Human Rights" (CCHR) has now documented over 8000 political arrests -that we know of-by the vile Castro regime this year, already beating last year's (2013) tally of 6424 hapless souls thrown in filthy Cuban prisons to slave, starve, and die. 10,000 new prisoners is well within the realm of possibility now, trouncing previous records of 2074 political arrests in 2010, 4123 arrests in 2011, and 6602 in 2012. So there's no denying that the year 2014 -under the leadership of 'reformer' Raul Castro- has brought the harshest Stalinist repression in the history of an already-very-repressive-country....

    A front-page obituary of David Greenglass published this week in the New York Times is seriously flawed. Not only does it contain inaccurate statements of fact, it also misrepresents the views of historians about the Rosenberg atomic espionage case. The obituary stated that there is a “consensus among historians” that “the Greenglass-Rosenberg atomic bomb details were of little value to the Soviets, except to corroborate what they already knew, and that Ethel Rosenberg had played no active role in the conspiracy.” As five historians who have written six books on Soviet espionage, three specifically on the Rosenberg network and three...

    Apparently getting out of the jet-ski business opened up far greener pastures in the high-tech, 21st-century military vehicle market for Minnesota-based snowmobile/ATV/electric vehicle manufacturer Polaris(who also produce Victory and Indian big bikes through their motorcycle subsidiary). First they concocted a clever 2-man mini-jeep -the Polaris MV850- with computer-designed tires that require no air, able to operate even after sustaining damage from gunfire or shrapnel. They've also spun-out a line of small, lightweight military support/patrol vehicles loosely-based on their existing consumer products, including the MRZR in both 2-man and 4-man configurations. But NOW they're getting serious: aiming for a Pentagon light-vehicle...

    The Army’s top general said Monday that an increase in threats around the world requires that the U.S. rethink plans to cut the size of the American military’s ground force. The Army agreed – reluctantly — to cut the size of its force to 490,000 under the budget reductions originally approved in 2011. But as a result of subsequent White House-Congress spending battles and military budget reviews, Pentagon leaders said the Army has had to make plans to shrink even further, to 450,000 or even 420,000. But Gen. Ray Odierno, the chief of staff of the Army, said Monday that...

    Kurds and Jews shared a common history. No nation has come to their aid when they have been under attack. Both have asked “Where is the world?” Watching the events affecting the Kurds in Kobani, Syria, under attack from the Islamic State (ISIS), it occurred to me that they have much in common with Zionists, Jews who established Israel in 1948. Turkey’s president Recep Tyyip Erdogan dislikes Kurds and Jews with equal fervor. The Kurds, estimated to be some 30 million in the Middle East, are spread out between a large enclave in northern Iraq, virtually an autonomous nation, and...

Traditionally, the use of jack-o-lanterns were a way to protect to the home from the undead and other fiends. This year I've noticed a lot of people are in fear of things other than banshees and night-gaunts.  A particular group of evil doers has gained some notoriety by posting videos in which they decapitate innocents and encourage like minded thugs to commit "lone wolf" attacks on their fellow citizens here in the United States. The possibility the bad guys...

    Seems Leon Panetta is already getting trashed by the left -of course- for attempting to come-clean and salvage his own personal legacy now that walls have come crashing-in on the serially incompetent, habitually dishonest, and always on-borrowed-time Obama regime... But his own mild truth telling (why didn't he speak up when it still mattered?) is cracking open the floodgates of reality now, and regardless of any intimidation/threats, survivors will likely now begin to speak-out more on what really happened in the 9/11 Benghazi consulate attack. The stories they tell will likely bear little in common with the contemptuous horseshit we've...

    Watchdog.org, a self-described “collection of independent journalists covering state-specific and local government activity” is fuming mad over the state of the Veterans Administration hospital at Shreveport Louisiana. Watchdog is reporting that the facility experiences shortages of clean linens and toiletries at the same time its administrators are spending our tax money on non-essential items. The American Legion’s National Commander said his organization will provide $5,000 worth of supplies to the VA for use in the Shreveport facility. He said, “If more is needed, more will be provided. While the American Legion family is more than happy to provide this assistance,...

    The Obama administration's plan for a new military quota system and lowering standards, Americans must demand an end to this dangerous, ideology-driven military policy The Center for Military Readiness (CMR) has released a 64-page report analyzing ongoing research by the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) about the effectiveness of integrating women into direct ground combat (DGC) units. The Interim CMR Special Report pokes a giant hole in the Obama administration’s assertions that standards of effectiveness can be maintained irrespective of the biological differences between men and women. In January 2013, with all the attendant fanfare, Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta...

    As the Army of the Islamic State continues to expand its control of Iraq, an Iraqi journalist reports that the American-led airstrikes are doing nothing to slow down IS An Iraqi journalist based in the holy city of Najaf spoke to Canada Free Press about the situation in his country as the Army of the Islamic State press upon the gates of Baghdad. President Barack Obama is not having an impact on war raging in Iraq, said Mustafa Aliraqi. “If he is unwilling to take the battle to ISIS, Iraqis are willing. He needs heavily arm Iraq.” Otherwise, there is...

    Those looking for good news on the fight against Ebola will not find much encouragement from Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly, the commander of the U.S. Southern Command. As Jim Garamone of Department of Defense News reports, Kelly told an audience at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday that, if the disease reaches Central America, "it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States." He also said with certainty that "there is no way we can keep Ebola [contained] in West Africa." “By the end of the year, there’s...

    Rebels claim that Moscow closes borders for volunteers from Russia and suppliers of freights to Donbass. To supporters of "the Russian spring" arises more and more questions from law enforcement agencies. Experts consider that the power intends to interfere further with private initiatives in the help to rebels of DNR and LNR. According to the field commander from DNR Oleg Miller, initially, when the Ukrainian crisis only inflamed, people with the weapon weren't allowed to pass neither in, nor out. But, as he claims, the border wasn't protected effectively that gave the chance to carry out big convoys with people...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A U.S. Coast Guard sector says it will contact ships that have recently been to Ebola-affected countries to ask whether passengers have symptoms of the virus before they are allowed into port. The sector, which includes parts of New York and Connecticut, issued to the maritime community in Long Island Sound on Monday a bulletin that describes protocols being put into place due to the Ebola outbreak....

    The U.S. military mission to combat Ebola in West Africa is facing questions about the serious health risks American troops will encounter in heading to the epicenter of the deadly outbreak. According to officials, a small group of trained military medical technicians on the ground will not be required to make direct contact with patients infected with the Ebola virus. However, they will have to handle infected blood samples, which Pentagon officials acknowledged Tuesday could be just as dangerous, if not more. Already, three mobile-testing labs, staffed by three or four technicians each, have been deployed in Liberia as part...

    "As Kobani falls to ISIS, the Turkish Army sits idle across the border." October 7, 2014 Years ago, I deployed to Germany with the First Infantry Division and thousands of other troops from the United States and its European NATO allies to participate in REFORGER (Return of Forces to Germany). These were war games designed to demonstrate to the Soviet Bloc that an invasion across the Fulda Gap would be met with a powerful response from the alliance and that the allies were prepared to commit substantial forces within a short time to repel such an invasion. There were troops...

    Obama simply does not get it or refuses to do so. His failure puts us closer to a nuclear cataclysm with every passing day The President’s lack of attention and indifference to years of intelligence reports and analysis is leading to a potential horror in which Iran fulfills its quest to make its own nuclear weapons. It already has the missile capacity to deliver them throughout the Middle East and to Europe. On October 6th Secretary of State John Kerry received a letter signed by 354 members of the House of Representatives that said in part “We are concerned that...
