McSally's Defense of DHS

I am a retired immigration inspector who worked at the Douglas, Az. Port of Entry.  U.S. Rep Martha McSally’s USA Today “Don’t Cripple Homeland Security” editorial of Feb. 25, 2015 is typical political double speak.  McSally has no real “street creds” to speak on immigration.  She is (with the help of GOP cronies)…

Obama's Inaugural / State of the Union ....A Time to Protest!

Folks, being nice in war and politics doesn't cut it.  It's time the National Tea Party get some real gonads and start exerting some real pressure on Obama and his cult of Socialists.  If this Tea Party is to be anything substantively like its' namesake it is time to start using the escalation of force used by the party of our Founding Fathers.  A good beginning would be a major demonstration at Obama's inauguration.  Follow that up with a group walk-out during his State of the Union…

To Hell With the Republican Party!

I’ve been a registered Republican since returning from Vietnam in 1971 – 41 years.  Recently I’ve spoken with so many shocked conservatives who believe it was Romney’s fault for one reason or another.  A former boss of mine this evening said it was actually good Romney didn’t win because the economy is so bad it would only have made the GOP look worse when Romney couldn’t fix it.  He believes Romney’s loss only improves the GOP chances in 2016 because Obama won’t have the GOP to blame for…

A Moral Storm

"... the structure of our public morality crashed to earth. Above its grave a tombstone read, "Be tolerant--even of evil." Logically the next step would be to say to our commonwealth's criminals, "I disagree that it's all right to rob and murder, but naturally I respect your opinion." Tolerance is only complacence when it makes no distinction between right and wrong.”  - Sarah Patton Boyle   This quote was the last dialogue narrated in the movie "A (or The) Moral…

High Value Targeting

Much complaining has been heard about the leftist media ignoring or outright covering up critical issues and outright violations of law and constitutional rights of American citizens.  Other than actual drug users, the most common addiction of Americans IS the MEDIA - particularly television.  Just like bank CEOS, the media depends on shareholders / subscribers for their existence.  Wars can't be fought without money.  George Soros wouldn't be one of the wealthiest persons in the world…

America's Autopsy: An Overdose on the Heroin of Hedonism

Three months after the 2008 Obama victory I was driving to work at Ft. Huachuca, AZ.  I was driving down Brainard Drive alongside the runway enjoying the crisp, winter morning sunrise when I felt this almost overwhelming nausea in my stomach.  The "still, small voice" in my head shouted "Obama is going to be RE-elected!"  I wasn't even thinking of politics at the time.  Now, I believe in the Lord's admonition in James 1:5, but I also believe that epiphanies occur unconsciously as synergism…

Agent Ivie Killing Unraveling

Last night on KVOA Channel 4 News, Tucson I heard an intriguing update on the facts surrounding the "friendly fire" killing of Border Patrol Agent Ivie.  News anchor Christie Tedesco said the latest information released by the Cochise County Sheriff's Department was that the responding male and female BP agents and BPA Ivie linked up, had their flashlights on, were in constant communication through their radios, and that they had identified each other.  That's…

Benghazi NEO, Military....Quo Vadis?

Just as the pentagon has contingency operations plans (COPs) for invading every country in the world (announced publicly by SecDef Rumsfeld), every State Department residence abroad is required to complete a Non-Combatant Evacuation  Operation (NEO) packet for situations exactly like what's happening to our embassies throughout the Middle East.  The existence of these packets is not classified but their contents are. Almost every nation in the world has such contingency plans.  These NEO…

Cochise County Sheriff.....The BIG Difference!

I’ve met both candidates for Sheriff.  In my opinion one is much more personable than the other. I couldn’t put my finger on it until I read one’s  bio.  He was a military policeman. It’s an axiom among municipal LE officers that the worst the military could do is give an 18 year-old a badge and a gun with the commensurate absolute power they possess on military installations.  That’s why most civilian LE agencies require applicants to be 21 years old.  Having the “color of authority” by…
