I read today that the Russians are looking to establish a base in Cuba and are in talks with the Cuban Government. Anyone with half a brain should have seen this coming. I reported on this a long time ago. The Russian Bear NEVER went away and is now looking to take advantage of an America they perceive as weak and misguided. They may be right, and for the Obama Administration to not anticipate this maneuver, is wholly incompetent and/or subversive. If the Russians get a foothold in Cuba, does anyone believe that they won’t move in nukes, either ship launched or land? The Lefts blindness in this area is incomprehensible and Americans, as well as any other country in the western hemisphere should be alarmed at this development. America used to have a doctrine that did not allow the introduction of any kind of nukes in the western hemisphere, and it is looking like the Obama Administration has ignored that prudent policy. Just look at what is going on in Venezuela with the Communists moving in there. There is no doubt in my mind that Obama is ill prepared to deal with this level of crisis. In my opinion he will crumble and nothing good will come of it. The thought of nukes aimed at us from 90 miles off the coast is not a comforting thought even though they have subs off our coasts all the time, doing the same thing we do, armed with nuclear tipped messengers of destruction…. Click here to read on how President Kennedy handled the situation in October of 1962. Of course, Obama might just think that this is all okay and he couldn’t care less….. I don’t know, what do you think?

According to this article,a TSA Supervisor has come forward and state that the agency has been directed to hire wackos in order to help push the people into accepting the coming police state….. Well, I really don’t know what to think about this so-called revelation. Could it be that there are actually people in the Federal Government who are brazen enough to admit to this crazy, out of the blue, unreal, “conspiracy” of sorts? The really scary thing is,…. in this administration, I believe it’s possible. If true, this revelation should stand as a shot across the bow of every citizen in this nation. Is this where we as a nation and society want to go? Are all the “alarmist” FEMA campers right? Has our government been conspiring against us, and if so, will the patriots in the military allow this to happen or will they stand up and say NO?! This in my opinion, is the crux of the matter. How patriotic are our military members? If this is true, I’ll guess we’ll find out……..one way or the other..
This revelation should not surprise anyone. China, as is Russia, are doing everything they can, individually and collectively, to bring down The United States. To buy in to the notion that these nations are our friends, is plain foolishness and naive. It is our politicians who have forced this notion on us and have set up the circumstances in which China has become so prevalent in our marketplace. When Chinese counterfeit electronic and hard parts have infiltrated our military, it is truly a serious situation. It is my assertion that all of these parts were designed to fail, or in the case being reported here, operate in such a way that causes a shutdown or failure of critical defense systems in times of critical performance. This is not by accident but design and our politicians must stop this trend, reverse it and eliminate the use of all foreign-made military parts. Click the pic for details.

“The American Thinker” is a very reputable web site that does not delve into “Conspiracy Theory” stuff, so in the process of doing some research on another story, I stumbled on this information. It caused me to sit up and take notice and coupled with what I was researching, it is concerning. Click here for the story I was researching and click here for the American Thinker article. Check it out, download the pdf here and make up your own mind……..
I hate to say “I told you so”, but….”I told you so”… Way back when the Pelosi/Reid ran congress was working on “Obamacare”, I was telling everyone, to include all the liberals I work with that this was what was going to happen to the military, and damned if I’m not right. This was his/they’re plan all along. They plan to screw the very people that stand up and VOLUNTEER to protect this great country, and yet they expect people in the military to continue to happily continue to serve. I think these idiot Dems/Libs are sorely mistaken. We vets will not sit still for this. I will be writing my Reps ASAP on this issue and I hope all my fellow Vets do the same. I do think though there is an ulterior motive/goal at work here. I think it is within the realm of possibility that ultimately these idiots do want the military retention rates to plummet. This would provide the impetus for the DOD to do way with the all volunteer military. This in-turn would allow the DOD to severely slash the military pay and benefits because at that point conscription, or the draft will have been reimplemented in order to maintain adequate troop levels. So, there will be no need for the higher wages. Done deal…… Our military will have been reduced to just another 2nd or 3rd rate force…… Think I am wrong? I don’t…….. Click the pic for the story…
MY LETTER TO MY REPS:
I have just learned that President Obama plans to shift all the military retiree medical into the Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges by making Tri-Care costs so high and prohibited that most if not all retirees will be forced into exchanges. This draconian plan is beyond the pale in design and intent and we retirees and veterans will not stand for this atrocious plan. We vets will find it impossible to support ANY member of Congress that supports this plan. We will make our voices be heard during your next election cycle should you vote in favor of this extraordinarily repugnant plan. We will be watching your actions and votes on this issue.

In this lead story you will see how the global economy is helping the Chinese working class,…or is it. I work with a lot of Asians from all over that area, to include a few people from China and I know this to be true, plus I was told that a lot of toys are made by prison labor. does not surprise me at all, nor should it you. My immediate thought was to check and see how much of an influence or how much of a role Jon Huntsman played in this situation, but it looks like he may not have much of a role in the toy manufacturing machine. However, he was working very closely with Obama which should be enough to raise the hair on the back of your neck. This story beings me back to Bubba and China-Gate. It is really worth revisiting now especially since we are in a much more precarious situation national security wise because of him and this scandalous affair.
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION STILL TRYING TO GET YOUR GUNS BY LYING….THE FEDS SEND GUNS OVER THE BOARDER TO JUSTIFY THIS LAME CLAIM..
These people are still working at their grand plan to get your guns… They will never give up and will not stop until we are no longer a free society. This is how tyrants take over…. Click the pic for the story.

My letter to Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler on this subject:
In a recent article I read on “The New York Times” website, it recounted recent statements being made by Leon Panetta that a reduction of retired military benefits will be on the table and out of pocket increases will be incurred by us retired military people. I have written you on several occasions expressing my concerns regarding Tri-Care and the possibility that the budget will be balanced on the backs of the Vets and Military Retirees. You have replied to my concerns stating that you will resist all efforts to further erode the retirement benefits that I worked over 20 years to get, that, by the way, was promised to me all those years ago. In the years since my initial enlistment, which was in 1975, I have bared witness to the steady reneging on the Governments part, of the retirement benefits of those serving this nation. You as a Representative of Congress, and as a body, must never lose sight of the fact that each and every man and woman who served and are currently serving in the military are volunteers. They/we have volunteered to defend this great land, with our lives if need be, in order to preserve the American way of life. That act alone, is worthy of honor AND backing and support of the very government we defend. It is my sincere prediction that if Congress once again, turns its back on the military members and further erodes the promised benefits of those who serve, you will see a steady, unrelenting decline in the numbers of people who will be willing to “volunteer” and stand up for this once great nation. I dare say, Congress is not contemplating a reduction in their retirement benefits, are they? Are you? You have to serve a much shorter time to get your benefits that I had to, yet you are fully vested after 5 years and will retirement with full benefits. I am unable to find any information regarding the medical benefits that are afforded you and others in Congress. I am troubled by that fact. The lack of information on this subject is troubling at best. Could you enlighten me and explain/outline the medical benefits afforded both serving and retired members of Congress? My readers have the right to know what we tax payers are paying for, especially when it involves the pay and benefits of those we choose to send to Washington DC. Bluntly stated, I will accept a reduction in benefits when Congress does the same.
In closing, I continue to urge both you and the rest of the Conservatives in Congress to strongly resist any further changes in the military benefits that would either lessen services or cause an increase in “out-of-pocket” expenses of the retirees or any other class of military vets. It is immoral for a nation to punish the very people whom you rely on to protect this great country. When I signed my contract with The United States of America, way back in 1975, the government promised me certain things if I kept up my end of the bargain. Well, I did, will the USA do the same and keep its end of the bargain? So far, it hasn’t. It is up to you to restore what is rightfully ours. The next election cycle is just around the corner for you and your re-election is not guaranteed. I sent you to DC for a reason and that was to stand up for me and be my voice along with the other thousands of Vets who rely on your support. I am expecting you and your like-minded Conservatives to do just that. Do not “cave” into those who wish to further erode the militaries pay and benefits just to make a “deal” and make political points by trying to look like you’re being ‘bi-partisan”. You are our shoulder to the dike, holding back the tide. Stay the fight, make those who wish to do us vets harm, blink first.
Letter to Senator Patty Murray:
In a recent article I read on “The New York Times” website, it recounted recent statements being made by Leon Panetta that a reduction of retired military benefits will be on the table and out of pocket increases will be incurred by us retired military people. I have written you on several occasions expressing my concerns regarding Tri-Care and the possibility that the budget will be balanced on the backs of the Vets and Military Retirees. You have replied to my concerns using very broad terms and not committing to resisting all efforts to further erode the retirement benefits that I worked over 20 years to get, that, by the way, was promised to me all those years ago. In the years since my initial enlistment, which was in 1975, I have bared witness to the steady reneging on the Governments part, of the retirement benefits of those serving this nation.

You being on the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Subcommittee, the Defense Subcommittee and the “Super Committee, you are in a prime position to preserve the benefits we veterans sacrificed so long for.
In closing, I continue to urge you to strongly resist any further changes in the military benefits that would either lessen services or cause an increase in “out-of-pocket” expenses of the retirees or any other class of military vets. It is immoral for a nation to punish the very people whom you rely on to protect this great country.

The next election cycle is coming up in ’16 and your re-election is not guaranteed, especially if you fail the vets. You were sent to DC for a reason and that was to stand up for me and be my voice along with the other thousands of Vets who rely on your support. I am expecting you to do just that.

As I try to put pen to paper on this subject, I am full of mixed emotions. I am so proud of America for the way its citizens have bounced back from this heinous act of cowardice. I am proud of all the young men and women who answered the call and volunteered themselves to go into harms way to protect this great nation. Many of which whom made the ultimate sacrifice and never returned home. I am so proud of all the First Responders, Police and Fire Fighters who responded to the Towers to help others, who in turn, we lost. I am proud of all the military personnel who were serving at the time of the attacks. It is these people who put shoulder to wheel and made the things happen that needed to get done immediately. It is these people who secured the nation from further attack in those days following the disasters. I am proud of those on Flight 93 who, in the face of adversity, made up their minds not to go down without a fight and try and stop the hijackers from achieving their sick and twisted goal. I am proud of all the brave men and women who when attacked, and a great many of them wounded, stood up, to help those who could not help themselves, saving countless other innocent lives. It is because of this kind of spirit, that America truly is; “The Land Of The Free And The Home Of The Brave”. It is this indomitable American sense of toughness that has and will see America through these trying times. No doubt, America has been through quit a lot. It survived the worst attack on is soil since Dec 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor. On 9/11/01, almost 3 times the amount of people were killed than at Pearl Harbor. It sickens me and I feel ill to this day every time this time of year comes around.
I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was the Security Manager in charge of Security at the Pilots briefing area within the Fighter Wing. I worked literally elbow to elbow with the F-15 Fighter Pilots in my Unit. It was a normal Tuesday morning and my alarm had gone off as usual. As was my custom, I would turn the TV on to look at the news and get the local traffic conditions so I would know how to plan my commute to work. I live across a major river from my Base and the commute can be a real pain sometimes because we only have to bridges spanning the river. So watching the traffic in the AM was pretty important. As the TV came on, both my wife and I were immediately struck by what we were seeing. It was a live news feed from NY and the news people were talking about how a plane had crashed into one of the twin World Trade Center towers. We watched for just a short time when out of nowhere, another plane flew into the picture and crashed into the other undamaged tower. We watched in stunned silence as the plane crashed into the building, sending debris, fire and bodies everywhere. At that instant, I knew we were under attack. I jumped out of bed and threw on my uniform as fast as I could. I threw a few things into my “ditty bag”, kissed the wife goodbye, telling her I don’t know when I’ll be back home, but not to worry, I’d call if I got the chance.. When I arrived at the Installation, as expected there was a calm and serious sense of urgency being displayed by all. From the lowest Enlisted to the highest Officer, all were conducting themselves professionally and with purpose. As my duties put me right in with the Fighter Pilots, I was able to witness them set about getting ready to answer whatever call came down. Each Fighter Pilot was and is the consummate professional, each determined to do whatever it took to protect this nation from further attack. Normally these guys were a pretty happy bunch. Everyone poking fun at everyone else, each, with no shortage of Fighter Pilot confidence and bravado. But today was completely different. The fun time was over, and it was time to get down to business, and each one had their game face on. It was a sight to see. In short, I was and still am, awed by their presence. They are totally inspiring and I am so proud to have been able to not only witness them at work, but I am proud to have been able to serve with them and along side of them . They truly are “The Tip Of The Spear”.
In the days, weeks and months following 9-11, schedules began to slowly return to a more of a semblance of normalcy. Schedules got more normalized, and were once again predictable. There were still a lot of long hours, but as time went on, we began to realize that there may not be any further attacks involving aircraft. You could almost hear a collective sigh of relief. Believe me, to a man, there was not a single pilot who looked forward to have to shoot down an airliner full of innocent people. That scenario was one only nightmares were made from….
However, now that we collectively look back in the years since 9-11-01, we have begun to realize that we may have paid a huge price for the apparent security we enjoy today. Now don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the work that our Military and Law Enforcement people are doing behind the scenes, all so we can go about our daily lives, not worrying about this or that blowing up in our faces. But what really concerns me is the fact that when the Patriot Act was signed, (all well intended I’m sure) a lot of our civil liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, were severely trod upon, if not completely bent, broken or wiped out. Just look at what we citizens have to go through just to travel by air. Rather than target the threat directly, the DHS chooses the political correct path and subject innocent, non threatening people to invasive if not illegal searches. The DHS has used this crisis as an opportunity to categorize every citizen of this country as an “Extremist” of one kind or another. Even the veterans, the very people who preserve or freedom, did not escape the indignity and insult of being looked upon as extremists. The people in Congress and in the various law enforcement agencies have used this situation as an excuse to illegally spy on innocent people and illegally track and tap into all sorts of computerized data available via the web. I dare say, our Republic has taken a hard hit, thank to the zealots in our government. The really sad thing is, it didn’t have to go down that way. All it would have taken was to do the right thing and deal with the problem directly and do everything possible to NOT encroach on our civil rights.
Since 9-11, in these last 10 years, I would like to believe that our government has learned volumes about our adversaries. I would like to believe that many lessons have been learned and that it has been discovered that there are better, more ethical, less egregious ways to protect this nation that strike a better balance between security and our god given rights. If this balance is not found, the terrorists will have won because one of their biggest goals was to change our way of life. And at this point in time, we have changed, not for the better, and they have won. We as a nation and a people cannot allow this to stand. Our Elected Officials must insist that the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights are once again respected by the people whom we trust in high offices throughout this nation. All those who fail to do so, must not be allowed to serve in the government. They are the antithesis to freedom and liberty and they must go. I can name many that are in the news on a daily basis today that fit that description. It is these people who are more concerned about power, and gathering more, than civil rights. It is these people I speak. It is that simple. Why? Because a Conservative American Vet said so, that’s why………….
By Andrew Tilghman– Staff writer, AIR FORCE TIMES
A sweeping new plan to overhaul the Pentagon’s retirement system would give some benefits to all troops and phase out the 20-year cliff vesting system that has defined military careers for generations.
In a massive change that could affect today’s troops, the plan calls for a corporate-style benefits program that would contribute money to troops’ retirement savings account rather than the promise of a future monthly pension, according to a new proposal from an influential Pentagon advisory board.
All troops would receive the yearly retirement contributions, regardless of whether they stay for 20 years. Those contributions might amount to about 16.5 percent of a member’s annual pay and would be deposited into a mandatory version of the Thrift Savings Plan, the military’s existing 401(k)-style account that now does not include government matching contributions. A critical new feature would adjust those contributions to give more money to troops who deploy frequently, accept hardship assignments or serve in high-demand jobs. It would also give the services a new lever to incentivize some troops to leave or stay on active duty longer.
The new proposal was unveiled July 21 by the Defense Business Board, the wellspring for many cost-saving initiatives adopted by the Defense Department in recent years. The new retirement plan would mark the biggest change in military retirement in more than 60 years and require approval from Congress.
“The current system is unfair, unaffordable and inflexible,” said Richard Spencer, a former finance executive and Marine Corps pilot who led the board’s eight-month retirement study.
This alternative plan would “enhance the ability of the service member to build a meaningful retirement asset [with] complete flexibility for their lifestyle or desires,” Spencer said.
It’s unclear whether troops would have immediate access to all the retirement money or whether it would be partially or completely withheld until a traditional retirement age, such as 65. Under the current TSP, troops cannot withdraw money until age 59½ without incurring a significant penalty, except in certain specified circumstances.
Fairness is a key factor, Spencer said. Along with saving the Pentagon money, the new plan offer significant retirement benefits to the roughly 83 percent of troops who leave service before reaching 20 years.
Unlike other proposals to overhaul military retirement that would grandfather current troops, the board suggests that DoD could make an “immediate” transition to the new system, which would affect current troops quite differently depending on their years of service:
• Recruits. The newest troops out of boot camp after the proposed change would have no direct incentive to stay for 20 years and would not get a fixed-benefit pension. Instead, they would receive annual contributions to a Thrift Savings Plan account and could leave service with that money at any time — although under current rules, they can’t withdraw the money until age 59½ without paying a penalty, except in certain specified circumstances.
• Five years of service. Troops would immediately begin accruing new benefits in a TSP account. If they remained in service until the “old vesting date” — the 20-year mark — they also would get one-fourth of the “old plan benefit,” or about 12 percent of their pay at retirement, as an annuity. If they separated, for example, after 10 years, they would walk away with no fixed-pension benefit but would have a TSP account with five years of contributions.
• 10 years of service. Troops would immediately begin accruing new benefits in a TSP account. If they remained in service for 10 more years, they would receive half of the “old plan benefit,” about 25 percent of their pay at retirement, as an annuity. If they separated after 15 years, they would walk away with no fixed-pension benefit but would have a TSP account with five years of contributions.
• 15 years of service. Troops would immediately begin accruing new benefits in a TSP account. If they remained in service for five more years, they would receive three-fourths of the “old plan benefit,” about 37.5 percent of their pay at retirement, as an annuity.
• 20 years and beyond. Troops who stayed in past 20 years would continue to receive annual TSP contributions.
The far-reaching proposal comes at a time of immense pressure on the military to cut spending and help reduce the national debt. President Obama has talked about cutting $400 billion over the next 12 years, while some proposals gaining support on Capitol Hill would call for cutting more than $800 billion over the same period.
Military retirement costs have soared in recent years because of rising life expectancy. If not contained, they will eventually “undermine future war-fighting capabilities,” Spencer said.
A new system may allow the military to make rapid changes in the size and structure of the force. For example, troops with 15 years of experience are likely targets for downsizing, and this plan would provide them with a significant retirement benefit, Spencer said.
The proposed change would have no affect on current retirees or disabled veterans.
Most private-sector companies contribute 4 percent to 12 percent of base pay into an employee’s retirement savings account. By comparison, the current military retirement benefit, for those who ultimately get it, amounts to a 75 percent contribution each year, the board said.
The board considered keeping the current system with some major changes, but concluded that those changes would not save enough money or fix the fairness and flexibility issues.
Those changes included withholding pension payments until a traditional retirement age; reducing pensions to 40 percent of regular pay rather than the current 50 percent; or calculating retirement pay based on the average pay over a member’s last five years in uniform, rather than the three years under the current system. Those changes would save about $254 billion over 20 years, the board said.
MY COMMENT: If this goes into effect, there will be no incentive for anyone to stay in the military. That in-turn will gut the military of its “brain-trust” and the US Military will sink to mediocrity at best…… Just like any other mediocre country…. Not good….
How stupid is this? How in the hell can any government official look any American in the eye and say with a clear conscience and a straight face, that this is good for America and California? It is beyond me. Gee, I wonder what kind of life span those new sections are going to have? Lets see, if I was China, and intent on taking down America, what better way than to build flaws into the infrastructure is possible. And if this bridge went down, out of service for whatever reason, it could be a great help to cripple transportation. And plus, why wasn’t this job done in the USA? What about the “Shovel Ready” jobs and the “stimulus” plan? Huh? Nobody here needs the work?!? I don’t get it……. Click the pic for the story.
IF PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS THE LIBYA CAMPAIGN DOES NOT VIOLATE THE WAR POWERS ACT BECAUSE THERE IS NO HOSTILITIES, THEN WHAT IS THIS?

Once again it becomes known that our politicians are working behind our backs to sell off America. This time in the form of a North American “Trade” agreement. Read the article and see for yourself. This type of “deal making” cannot be allowed to continue without citizen involvement. We citizens should have a say in this. Click the pic for the story.
As it turns out, the fossil fuel reserves in this country has just been expanded dramatically. By the use of a technique called “fracking” the amount of shale oil and natural gas reserves has been expanded so much, it seems to me that developing these reserves should be a “no brainer”.. But wait, oh yea, our President wants gas and fuel prices as high as possible so we all volunteer, oh, I mean, are forced, into his green agenda. If the GOP, never mind the Dems because we know they don’t or won’t jump on this, we need to throw all the bums out. We as a nation MUST get a lot more energy independent. We need not only for our economy, but for the security of the nation. Click the pic for the story. Question; How long (really) has this been known and by whom? Hmmmmmmmmm
