Listen my children and you shall hear
Anne Coulter writes at Breitbart: "So that you won't be fooled by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow claiming Second Amendment supporters were celebrating the Oklahoma City bombing this week -- as she has on April 19 in years past. Tuesday was the anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord, a date all Americans used to know." Read her article.
Found on the "Stealth Magnolia" website, the below pic. Could you imagine this diverse collection of people hanging together today. much less being approved by any group for the same honor? Sadly, not -- in large part thanks to the Obama administration and the left wing's constant inciting of hatred and agitation via "identity" politics. More about the Ellis Island Medal of Honor at wiki. These are achieving children of immigrants who came into this country the old-fashioned way. Legally.
This election season just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
Found on the Gateway Pundit website -- an "unlisted" youtube video from Montgomery Blair Sibley (the attorney for the "DC Madam" Debra Palfrey).
According to the Rachel Maddow show -- video, Blair says that he has set up a "dead man's switch" that will cause all of these records to be released if he disappears for 72 hours.
[N]ot a day goes by without someone, somewhere in the world being horribly murdered by devout Muslims in the name of this religion -- over ten thousand persons each year. More innocent lives were snuffed out in just two hours by devout Muslims on 9/11 than by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire 145-year history...
Being Muslim is a choice. It's not a race. It's not a nationality. It's not an immutable characteristic. Those who were born into the "culture" and brainwashed into a sense of superiority about it would do well to learn what it actually is, and to trace their roots back to where their own ancestors submitted at the tip of a sword to this political nonsense invented by a violent megalomaniac cult leader who pretended to be getting edicts from his moon god for the purpose of enhancing his own power and wealth. Find something else with which to identify.
The countervailing research, criminal law and psych research -- and there is much of it, which says that torture does NOT work, speciously is focusing on another kind of interrogation entirely. This research is examining the efficacy of the general interrogation of suspicious individuals under circumstances in which it is not actually known whether or of what the individual is guilty, or what information the individual has, or to what extent the individual has information. False confessions and bad information (and time-wasting "leads") not infrequently are given by those who do not actually have information to give and who then spout or confess to anything in order to relieve their suffering.
The two kinds of interrogations can -- and must -- be distinguished.
Higbie noted that waterboarding is inflicted on our military personnel as part of their training, preparing them for what they may face if captured, so what's the problem with using it on terrorists? Hegseth readily agreed... Neither of these former warriors commented on the ignorance of Hillary's flat-out declaration that torture does not work... They know better.
For someone who wants to command our military forces, Hillary needs to get herself up to speed on very basic military matters rather than simply spouting liberal pieties. If torture doesn't work, then why are our troops trained very harshly to be prepared to resist it ...why spend all that time and money training ...why does the American military's Code of Conduct state this as its fifth rule...
5. When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am required to give name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability, I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause.
I'd like Hillary to explain... that clause, to the utmost of my ability. It's recognition by the military that eventually, everyone talks if subjected to enough mistreatment... Hillary, despite your extensive combat experience in Bosnia, this old grunt is here to tell you that you don't have a clue what you're talking about...
"Alicia, I wish I could tell you about these pilots. They make me sick with envy. They ride their vehicles the way a man controls a fine, well-trained quarter horse. They weave along stream beds, rise like swallows to clear trees, they turn and twist and dip like swifts in the evening. I watch their hands and feet on the controls, the delicacy of the coordination reminds me of the sure and seeming slow hands of (Pablo) Casals on the cello. They are truly musicians hands and they play their controls like music and they dance them like ballerinas and they make me jealous because I want so much to do it. Remember your child night dream of perfect flight free and wonderful? It's like that, and sadly I know I never can. My hands are too old and forgetful to take orders from the command center, which speaks of updrafts and side winds, of drift and shift, or ground fire indicated by a tiny puff or flash, or a hit and all these commands must be obeyed by the musicians hands instantly and automatically. I must take my longing out in admiration and the joy of seeing it.
