Leave No Man Behind:
"As the US Marine Corps helicopter lifted from the roof of the American
Embassy in Saigon at daybreak on April 30, 1975, I thought about the carnage
that would result from a heat-seeking missile fired by Vietnamese Communist
forces gradually encircling the besieged capital of the dying Republic of
Vietnam (RVN). Exhausted by a lack of sleep for the previous several days,
I no longer felt fear, only curiosity. Tears welled up in my eyes, perhaps
due in part to the anguish of witnessing the tragic events unfolding before
me, but also from caustic smoke belched out of rooftop incinerators glowing
cherry-red from reams of frantically burned secret US Government documents.
Feeling a sense of relief, I nevertheless harbored an even stronger sense of
guilt. On the Republic of Vietnam's final day, as I looked down into the
gradually diminishing compound and into the terrified eyes in the upturned
faces of hundreds of Vietnamese nationals and citizens of other countries
friendly to the United States, who were being left behind, I knew that I
would be haunted for many years to come. As the venerable 'Sea Stallion'
throbbed its way through the damp morning air toward a helicopter carrier
anchored off the coast at Vung Tau, blazing multicolored tracers rising
from the dark-canopied jungle below bade farewell to America and to an era
known as the Vietnam War.
With the fall of the RVN, as many analysts had predicted, jubilant communist
forces quickly invaded and occupied the populated areas. Hundreds of
thousands of former military and civilian officials were required to be
screened, classified and registered as enemies of the revolution to be
detained in remote, isolated concentration camps under horrific conditions.
Thousands died due to disease and malnutrition, many never to be heard from
again by family members. At the same time, the communist leadership
insisted that the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in the north and the
Provisional Revolutionary Government in the south be united as one.
From that day forward, according to the constitution, only one political
party, the Vietnam Communist Party, would be allowed to exist. On official
letterheads of government stationery the three previously used terms
comprising the national motto of the communist north:
'Freedom, Independence and Democracy' were changed forever to read 'Freedom, Independence and Happiness.'
To the Vietnamese people this change in terminology, especially
the reference to happiness, would provide one of the few sources of humor
during a desperate time. To add insult to injury, the graves of fallen RVN
military personnel were razed by bulldozers in cemeteries across the
country. Typewriters, radios, televisions and anything that could be used
for propagation or communication were required to be registered with the
'Military Management Committee' responsible for political security under the
new 'Socialist Republic of Vietnam.' As interest began to wane, occasional
references to the Vietnam War coined phrases such as 'a noble cause' or 'an
unnecessary war.' The question as to whether the Vietnam War was or was not
necessary was just as divisive in postwar debate as it was during the days
following the 1968 'Tet Offensive.' In my own assessment of both the
necessity for and the outcome of the Vietnam War two primary
considerations were the U.S. national interest at the time and the mission
of the U.S. Military Forces that fought in Southeast Asia.
At the beginning of the War in Vietnam, the basic mission of American
soldier worldwide was to kill, destroy, or capture the enemy, or repel his
assault by fire. Over one million men and women answered their nation's
call, and they did their level best to carry out their mission in Southeast
Asia. As a result, some 58,000 Americans and some 225,000 allied personnel
made the ultimate sacrifice, while by comparison, communist Vietnam
suffered the loss of over 1,300,000 personnel, including 150,000 personnel
who were killed-in-action but never recovered. I personally witnessed the
strongest blow struck at communist forces by hard-fighting American and
South Vietnamese troops that occurred during the January 31, 1968, 'Tet'
offensive. The bodies of thousands of communist personnel were stacked in
piles around installations throughout South Vietnam, and losses were so
heavy for the communist side that the entire military rank structure was
temporarily abandoned and cadre selected to command and control units were
assigned based on position or job title only, rather than actual military
rank. The loss of life to the communist side was nothing less than
staggering, and any U.S. military commander whose losses approached even a
small percentage of actual communist fatalities at that time would most
likely have been relieved of command.
Even though America's servicemen and women fought valiantly during the
1968 'Tet' offensive, the U.S. and international media nevertheless managed to
reshape their hard-earned victory into a political defeat. Vietnamese
communist propaganda experts were so skillful that they were able to
convince many members of the media and even some military analysts that two
separate governments, the National Liberation Front in South Vietnam and
the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in the North, existed side by side and
that both were involved in a 'civil war.' It has since been proven that
both the NLF and the DRV were tightly controlled by the Vietnam Communist
Party and both governments were actually one and the same. Moreover,
personnel of the two purported military organizations of both illusionary
governments, the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and the Viet Cong (VC),
were in reality members of the Peoples Army of Vietnam (PAVN).
Successive administrations in Washington, D.C. have pressed for democracy in
many countries around the world, including Russia, Haiti, South Africa,
Afghanistan and Iraq. But there has been very little interest shown in
gaining democracy for Asians, and this double standard is difficult to
understand. It is almost as though we Americans have a collective mentality
whereby we believe that peoples with yellow skin cannot manage freedom, and
that tight control is the only option available.
The American business community, aggressively buying up cheap products
manufactured in Asia for resale on the U.S. market, is blinded by the lack
of labor unions, cheap wages and fear of violent reprisals against labor
strikes. It is ironic that after some 58,000 fine young Americans died in
Vietnam while fighting for democracy the American business community is
now steadily developing the economy of communist controlled Vietnam,
insuring that the Vietnam Communist Party will not only remain in power,
but that it will increasingly have the ability to maintain an even larger and
more powerful military force. Concerning the plight of the families of Vietnam
War POWs and MIAs, democracy can also go a long way to help in this regard.
I believe that most Americans, especially Vietnam veterans, will agree that
for the most part the Vietnamese people are honest and hardworking. Like
our people right here at home, I can't imagine a situation where the people
of Vietnam would be willing to hide the remains of anyone's loved one in
order to extort money from them. Although during the past 30 years the
ruling communists have gradually doled out bits and pieces of skeletal
remains and personal effects in return for large monetary sums, once the
Vietnam Communist Party has collapsed the Vietnamese people will rise to
the occasion and provide whatever assistance is necessary to resolve the
issue of our missing men. We should all be doing everything we can to make
sure that day comes.
Garnett 'Bill' Bell, a retired GM-14, DoD, went to Vietnam as an infantryman
in 1965 and served four tours there. Bell was awarded 20 individual
decorations and numerous unit awards. Bell later served as an instructor in
the Department of Exploitation and Counterintelligence, U.S. Army
Intelligence Center and school. During his career Bell served in the 327th
Airborne Battle Group, 101st Airborne Division, the 1/35th Infantry
Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, the 2/506th Airborne Infantry Regiment,
101st Airborne Division, the 101st MI Company, the 525th Military
Intelligence Group, the Defense Language Institute, the U.S. Army
Intelligence and Security Command, the 6th Special Forces Group, the Joint
Casualty Resolution Center (JCRC), the Four Party Joint Military Team
(FPJMT) and the Joint Task Force Full-Accounting (JTFFA). *Bell's wife and
son were killed and a daughter critically injured in April 1975, when the
families of U.S. officials assigned to the American Embassy in Saigon were
evacuated in conjunction with the 'Operation Babylift' program. After
being evacuated by helicopter from the roof of the American Embassy on the
final day of the Republic of Vietnam (RVN) (30 April 1975), Bell returned
to postwar Vietnam as the first official U.S. representative after the war
ended when he was assigned as the Chief of the U.S. Office for POW/MIA
Affairs in Hanoi. He served more than 12 years on the POW/MIA Search Teams.
An Airborne-Ranger and Jumpmaster, Bell eventually became a member of the
Congressional Staff, U.S. House of Representatives. Fluent in Vietnamese,
Thai and Laotian, Bell is a graduate of Chaminade University and the author
of 'Leave No Man Behind.' Bell is employed as an investigator in the 12th
Judicial District western Arkansas.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today U.S. Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) encouraged his fellow Members of Congress to expedite H.R. 6275, the Air Cargo Security Act of 2010. Congressman Jones is one of two cosponsors of the bill, which was introduced in September of this year by Rep. Edward Markey (MA-7). The bill aims to amend title 49 of the United States code to improve air cargo security. Currently the bill sits in committee for a length of time to be determined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi..
“In light of today’s security threat involving cargo planes, the importance of this bill has become very apparent,” said Jones. “We must be proactive when it comes to homeland security and I urge Speaker Pelosi to move forward with this imperative piece of legislation.”
The Air Cargo Security Act of 2010 states that through the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security (Transportation Security Administration) each airport in the United States that serves passengers will establish and operate Federal air cargo screening centers for the screening of cargo transported on passenger aircraft operated by an air carrier or foreign air carrier in air transportation or intrastate air transportation.

"Those who bought Ford stock in February 2009 are happy they did. The stock closed that day at $1.58, and as of this writing it's at $14.41. General Motors stock went down 74 percent between February and the end of May 2009, when trading was suspended and GM declared the biggest industrial insolvency in U.S. history.

"The American people are mad. No, check that, they are steaming mad. In the weeks leading up to the election, poll after poll after poll has shown that the American people are angrier at government than at any other point in modern U.S. history. American voters have been angry before, but this time it is different. Instead of being mad at just one political party, the American people are now clearly disgusted with both political parties. "

"The word is out there – President Obama is in real trouble. They may not have the specifics, but the story of a big scandal coming is circulating now within the party – both parties. So why put your own political career on the line supporting a president who is facing such a fiasco? Simple – they won’t. And so you are seeing the separation happening. The party itself is starting to separate itself from the president. You ever watch those nature programs where the herd doesn’t hang out with the sick one? You got that poor sick antelope or whatever standing all by itself and when it tries to join back with the herd they run away from it? They’ll even attack it themselves if they have to. That’s what happens in politics. If you are in real trouble, the others separate from you. That is what is happening to the president right now.

Rush Limbaugh mentioned the Art Robinson/DeFazio race on his radio show today! It came up because of DeFazio's ridiculous political stunt in which he called for the impeachment of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts.
Rush Limbaugh also mentioned that Charlie Cook - a well known analyst - has moved our race from safe Democrat to "in play"!
Although he did not mention Art Robinson's name, it is an indicator of how this race is gradually attracting more and more national attention. Most political analysts have been assuming up until now that DeFazio is unbeatable, largely because he has been there so long. If we can win on election day (which we are very likely to do), it will be major national news. Please continue to work as hard as possible to make sure our campaign is a success!

He is probably not aware of the 17,000 yard signs, 24,000 car door magnets, and tremendous enthusiasm and grass roots support in our campaign. This, of course, is because of all your hard work!

How many Talk Show hosts or politicians speak about the men and women who helped make America the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?” Glenn Beck, of the Fox News channel, often speaks about the Constitution, Bill of Rights and those who stood for America’s Independence.
Is anyone talking about the upcoming War Between the States Sesquicentennial? The 150th Anniversary of the War for Southern Independence will be commemorated by such groups as the Georgia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans. See more information at: http://www.150wbts.org/Do young people know the truth about Henry Wirz?
The 35th annual Captain Henry Wirz Memorial Service (a tradition started by the Alexander H. Stephens Camp 78 Sons of Confederate Veterans and Americus Chapter United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1976) will take place on Sunday afternoon, November 7th at 3 PM in the town of Andersonville, Georgia.
The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Richard Rhone from Tuscaloosa, Alabama who is the Lieutenant Commander General of the Military Order of Stars and Bars. John Carroll will lead those assembled in the singing of “Dixie” and Andersonville Mayor Marvin Buagh will bring welcome.
For more information about the event contact James Gaston by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Captain Henry Wirz was born, Hartman Heinrich Wirz in November 1823, in Zurich, Switzerland where his father, Abraham Wirz was highly respected.
At the outbreak of the War Between the States, Wirz enlisted in the Fourth Louisiana infantry on June 16, 1861. He was promoted to sergeant a year later and was wounded at the Battle of Seven Pines. He never recovered from the injury to his left wrist and it caused him great pain for the rest of his life.
Wirz was promoted to Captain on June 12, 1862 and was first detailed to General John Winder where he was given command of a Confederate military prison in Richmond, Virginia.
After serving a year as special emissary to President Jefferson Davis in Paris and Berlin, on March 27, 1864, he was installed as commandant of Andersonville Prison at Fort Sumter in Georgia. Wirz did the best he could do with many Union prisoners and very little food and medicine. It is written that the guards got the same food and medicine as the prisoners.
The Confederacy sent a distress message to Union President Abraham Lincoln and Union General Ulysses S. Grant. The South pleaded for an exchange of Confederate and Union prisoners. Lincoln and Grant, however, refused believing the Union prisoners might go home but the Confederate prisoners might go back to fight another day.
Captain Henry Wirz was unfairly charged of war crimes and even though witnesses for the defense could testify, his fate was already decided. Among those who knew of Wirz’s innocence was a Union soldier who was a prisoner at Andersonville.
Wirz was executed in Washington, D.C. on November 10, 1865.
The Confederate Reenactors and Honor Guard of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 78 (Muckalee Guards) will perform the closing ceremony at the monument to Wirz in Andersonville placed there by the United Daughters of the Confederacy (Georgia Division).

Or this: Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution
"Since the early 1920s, numerous pamphlets and articles, even a few books, have sought to forge a link between 'international bankers' and 'Bolshevik revolutionaries.' Rarely have these attempts been supported by hard evidence, and never have such attempts been argued within the framework of a scientific methodology. Indeed, some of the "evidence" used in these efforts has been fraudulent, some has been irrelevant, much cannot be checked. Examination of the topic by academic writers has been studiously avoided; probably because the hypothesis offends the neat dichotomy of capitalists versus Communists (and everyone knows, of course, that these are bitter enemies). Moreover, because a great deal that has been written borders on the absurd, a sound academic reputation could easily be wrecked on the shoals of ridicule. Reason enough to avoid the topic.
Fortunately, the State Department Decimal File, particularly the 861.00 section, contains extensive documentation on the hypothesized link. When the evidence in these official papers is merged with nonofficial evidence from biographies, personal papers, and conventional histories, a truly fascinating story emerges.
We find there was a link between some New York international bankers and many revolutionaries, including Bolsheviks. These banking gentlemen — who are here identified — had a financial stake in, and were rooting for, the success of the Bolshevik Revolution.

"The history of ancient and modern republics had taught them that many of the evils which those republics suffered arose from the want of a certain balance, and that mutual control indispensable to a wise administration. They were convinced that popular assemblies are frequently misguided by ignorance, by sudden impulses, and the intrigues of ambitious men; and that some firm barrier against these operations was necessary. They, therefore, instituted your Senate."

Pessimistic Prediction: The Republicans, thanks to TEA Party candidates, take over the House and Senate and make the following deal with Obama: “We won’t object to your socialized medicine if you, in turn, do not object to our invasion of Iran.” War with Iran will necessitate the resurrection of the form of involuntary servitude known as military conscription.
Less Pessimistic Prediction: The TEA Partiers form their own caucus — and eventually their own party — and throw sand into the gears of this insanity.
Optimistic Prediction: The dollar crashes and, as a result, Ron Paul is elected president. Charles Koch packs up all of his GOP/Fed-bootlicking D.C. think tanks and goes home.

"The polls show Colorado governor candidate Tom Tancredo with a commanding lead over his Republican rival Dan Maes, but John Hickenlooper still leads overall, so Tancredo is leaning on Maes to step aside for the good of the state.
Hickenlooper is remembered as the mayor of Denver who continued the sanctuary city program there. In addition, when he owned a restaurant, the business hired an illegal alien who later murdered Denver police officer Donnie Young in 2005. A Governor Hickenlooper would be a very bad thing indeed for the rule of law."
