July 26, 2021, 4:51 amMilitary Service Requirement Reality

MILITARY SERVICE REQUIREMENT 
 
Trey Gowdy, a former South Carolina Congressman, responded to a question from a CNN reporter about the ban of transgenders from joining the US armed forces.  As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather succinctly.
 
Question:  How did former President Trump claim to represent all US citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military?  Isn't that discrimination?
 
Trey Gowdy's Response: “Nobody has a right to serve in the military.  Nobody!  What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer?  It is very far from it - and for good reasons - let me cite a few.
 
The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.

 

Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.  He went on to explain:  By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth.  Malnourished?  Drug addiction?  Bad back?  Criminal history?  Low IQ?  Anxiety?  Phobias?  Hearing damage?  Six arms?  Hear voices in your head?  Self-identification as a Unicorn?  Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair?
 
Can't run the required course in the required time?  Can't do the required number of push-ups?  Not really a morning person?  And refuse to get out of bed before noon?  All can be legitimate reasons for denial.
 
The Military has one job:  Winning War.  Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream, 'That isn’t Fair?’  War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.
 
YOU must change yourself to meet Military standards and not the other way around. You don't change the Military - you must change yourself.  The Military is not about being fair, it is about taking advantage of others and about winning.

The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues.  The Military needs to Win Wars and keep our Country safe - PERIOD!

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality...  Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.”

 "Any other questions?"


God Bless America!

July 21, 2021, 9:35 pmHungary's New Border Fence a 'Spectacular Success'.

Thats the way to do it.

 

Hungary's New 14 ft. High Razor Wire

Hungary's New Border Fence called a 'Spectacular Success'.

 

 

Skeptics who believe a border wall will not stop illegals from entering the United States may want to look at what's happening in Hungary.

 

On the day its border fence was completed, the influx of illegals entering Hungary went down from 6,353 per day to 870 the next. For the remainder of that month, illegal border crossings were steadily below 40 per day, officials said.

 

"They don't even try," a local border guard told The Daily Caller News Foundation. "We haven't had a single Muslim migrant in six months."  Prime Minister Viktor Orban's pledge to stop illegals from flowing into the country appears to be a spectacular success.

 

Hungary's 96-mile long, 14-foot high double-line fence includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. The barrier features cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they're about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence, the DC report said.

 

Nearly every police officer in Hungary is part of a rotation to monitor the border fence at all times. Temporary military bases house the police while they do their rotation.

Additionally, Hungary will train and pay more than 1,000 volunteers to deploy as "border hunters".

 

Illegals who are caught are arrested and dropped off on the Serbian side of the fence. They don't get a chance to apply for asylum unless they do so at a "transit zone" where they are held in housing containers while their cases get processed, the report said.

 

In September 2016, thousands of migrants streamed across the border every day as they made their way north to Austria, Germany and Scandinavia.

"It was an invasion," Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of Asotthalom, told the Daily Caller.  "Illegal immigration is a crime in a normal country.  It's not a normal thing to break into a country."

 

"By mid-year it was well beyond 100,000 people who came across," said Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for the Hungarian government.  "You should at least have the ability to handle what's going on."

 

Kovacs added: "You might not like it, it's not a nice thing, but the only way to stop illegal border crossings is to   first build a fence, man it, equip it, and also, in parallel, build up your capabilities in terms of legal confines, legal circumstances to be able to handle what is coming."

 

It's no surprise the mainstream U.S. media refuses to report this story to the American public.  Can you imagine how support for a Southern border wall would spike?

The Mysterious Cuban plot in JFK murder

963, Lee Harvey Oswald | Crédit Photo -- Jack Beers / Dallas Morning/AP
According to the author of the book, (available since Tuesday in the bookstors in USA), in the months preceding the Amarican president assassination, Oswald was conected with the Cuban secret service much more than we could imagine.

The CIA agents lied about these connotations in front of the judge Warren comission, which was leading the investigation of killing the president on November 22, 1963- claims Latell, who was the CIA's National Intelligence Officer for Latin America from 1990-1994, and has tracked Castro for the CIA since the sixties. According to Latell Cuba was also hiding the information about Oswald. Overheard conversation of two Cuban agents which was revealed lately in archives, seems to prove that. Latell doesn’t suggest that Oswald killed Kennedy on behalf of the communist authority in Hawana. Although he states that the new evidence proves commonly accepted thesis that the main reason pushing Oswald to the crime was "the burning desire to impress the Cuban leader Fidel Castro".

"I’m convinced that Oswald wanted to escape on Cuba. He loved Cuba and Castro and wanted to join the revolutin" writes Latell. The new sources used by Latell among others are : unpublished diaries of Thomas Mann, the USA ambassador in Mexico, the conversation with former Cuban agents and exposed gevernmental documents.

It’s commonly known that seven weeks before Kennedy assassination Oswald took the bus to go to the Mexico capital to obtain the visa at the embassy of Cuba. He didn’t get it but his visit caused lots of controversy and questions about the Cuban engagement in Kennedy murder as Oswald was famous for his communists inclinations. "What Oswald was doing for most of the time he spent in Mexico capital still stays the most important unreveald secret in this case" claims Latell.

The author says that the USA authorities never revealed everything they knew on this issue. It’s probably because they were afraid of public opinion demanding the revenge if the Cuban involvement was proved. It was just right after the Kennedy assassination when ambassador Mann found out that Oswald stayed in Mexico in Hotel del Comercio considered by CIA to be the base of Cuban spies working for the secret service DGI. In his diaries written in 1982 Mann disclosed that he received that information from the head of CIA agency in Mexico. When he tried to mention this issue in Washington, U.S. Department of State forced him to keep silence and stop the investigation on Oswald’s visit in Mexico.

According to Latell, only a week after the assassination, Mann was already ensured about Cuban participation in the crime and about the fact that Oswald worked for Cubans in that hotel. The diplomat was although dismissed a month after the JFK assassination. He died in 1999. In the book the author clearly underlined that CIA dissimulated in front of the Warren’s comission what happened in Hotel del Comercio in Mexico. The comission announced later that there is no evidence that Cuban government participated in the plot leading to kill Kennedy.The critics of the Latell’s book are compatible in their opinions. "No one knows more about Cuban intelligence than Brian Latell. In this page-turner, he not only tells compelling stories that reveal the strength of Cuban actions in Le Carre's world of spy vs. spy but raises unsettling questions about Lee Harvey Oswald's Cuban connections. By the end, the reader is asking, What did Fidel know and when did he know it?Timothy Naftali wrote in Blind Spot: « The Secret History of American Counterterrorism"**.

Brian Latell is also the author of another book devoted to Castro : "After Fidel"**, which has been published in eight languages. His articles on this topic have appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time, The Miami Herald, and The Washington Quarterly. It seems to prove Timothy Naftali’s opinion about Latell’s experience and knowledge as a former intelligence analyst on Cuba for the CIA. Currently Latell is a senior research associate at the Institute for Cuban and Cuban American Studies at the University of Miami, he previously taught for a quarter century at Georgetown University. He lives in Lancaster, Virginia.

July 20, 2021, 8:40 pmPowerful call to rebut 'American Marxism

https://www.leaderherald.com/opinion/editorials/2021/07/call-to-rebut-american-marxism/

 

...." The vast majority of the media promote it, they lie for it, they celebrate it, they bring the radicals on TV to lie about it.” Theorists such as Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo, who declare all whites inherently racist until they confess their support for a “racial reckoning,” have been repeatedly celebrated in the “mainstream news” broadcasts. There is no debate allowed....."

I was the only speaker to show up at the high school, so I had the stage to myself.

I talked about staying in school, getting good grades and all that usual bull; and since I had plenty of time because those other guys didn't show, I threw it open for questions.

The last one asked was, "Can you give us a couple of your life's philosophical beliefs?"

I said, "That's an easy one. Looking back over my lifetime, I've spent most of my money on guns, airplanes, fast cars, women, and whiskey.  The rest I just wasted."

I was escorted out without getting to finish my last two rules to live by:

 

1) If it flies, floats, it's cheaper to rent it.

 

2) If it's got tits or tires, you're gonna have problems with it.

 

I hope they invite me back next year so I can finish.  They need to know this !

July 15, 2021, 5:33 amDa Vinci's DNA traced through living relatives to understand his genius

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Da Vinci's DNA traced through living relatives to understand his genius

 

 

Fourteen people alive today in Italy can claim that they are descendants of Leonardo da Vinci, according to a study of the Renaissance genius' family tree.

Researchers traced da Vinci's genealogy over nearly 700 years and 21 generations, from 1331 to the present day, beginning with da Vinci's great-great-great grandfather Michele.

The findings, published July 4 in the journal Human Evolution, could enable historians to reconstruct da Vinci's genome, helping them "scientifically explore the roots of his genius" and other characteristics, such as his left-handedness and unique sensory perceptions, the researchers wrote in the study.

Alessandro Vezzosi, a historian at the Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci in Italy, and Agnese Sabato, president of the Leonardo Da Vinci Heritage Association, mapped five major branches of the updated family tree. Da Vinci, best known for painting "The Last Supper" and "The Mona Lisa," had no children, but his blood relatives include 22 half siblings. The Renaissance artist, scientist and engineer was born out of wedlock on April 15, 1452.

Vezzosi and Sabato scoured historical documents to identify the living relatives through an unbroken male line from da Vinci's father, Ser Piero, and half brother Domenico. The living descendants range in age from 1 year old to 85 years old, according to the researchers.

The historians are planning to conduct genetic analyses of the living relatives to zero in on the Y chromosome, which is passed down to male descendants, and "in which the indelible profile of Leonardo's personal and family identity is stamped," the researchers wrote in the study. Because this particular male line is unbroken, it's possible that the Y chromosome remains unchanged, they said.

In addition to revealing new insights into da Vinci's personality and health, a DNA study could help verify his remains. Da Vinci died in 1519 and is thought to be buried in Amboise, France, but the precise location is not known.

The new study is part of an international effort to find and sequence the polymath's DNA. The so-called Leonardo Da Vinci DNA Project includes researchers from the Leonardo Da Vinci Heritage Association, the Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci and the California-based J. Craig Venter Institute.
