Don’t ask, don’t shout

By 6 Comments 353 views

Our military and CIA aren’t the only ones having their hands tied and being kept on a tighter leash when it comes to the business of interrogation: British soldiers have “lost their capability” to interrogate terrorist insurgents because of strict new rules on questioning that even ban shouting in captives’ ears, military chiefs have warned….

'Only doing the job': Among his many records is one for the most aircraft carrier landings in history: 2,407. A U.S. naval pilot who tried to beat him got as far as 1,600 before suffering a nervous breakdown

Capt. Eric “Winkle” Brown at 94: “Only doing the job”

By 3 Comments 911 views

He was the first man to fly a jet on and off an aircraft carrier. He has set aviation records that will almost certainly never be broken and is revered as one of the greatest test pilots of all time.

But even if you take out the aerobatics, his story is remarkable. Here is a man who narrowly cheated death in the wreckage of a torpedoed ship, helped to liberate Belsen and took 2,000 enemy prisoners armed only with a pistol.

~~~

What’s more, he then had to test all their aircraft. And all this before turning 30. Little wonder that when he arrived at Buckingham Palace at the grand old age of 28 for the fourth time, to receive the AFC in addition to the DSC, MBE and OBE he had already received, George VI greeted him with the words: ‘Not you again.’

The ObamaCare Neutron Bomb Is Coming To A Town Near You

By 1 Comment 983 views

The Obama administration is prodding people to become whistleblowers for ObamaCare. Of course not to blow the whistle on the government and those who created this monstrosity that no one can figure out. No, to blow the whistle on small businesses who can then be fined quickly. This way they can be run out of… Read more »

A Wild Evening At Comanche Station

By 5 Comments 828 views

The Voyage of Discovery, led by Lewis and Clark in 1803, took three years to travel to the West Coast and back. There was a desire to shorten the time for continental travel and mail delivery; the stage coach was the logical choice, but the logistics were almost overwhelming. There would need to be blacksmiths, harness makers, drivers and conductors, and many way stations. Horse feed was an overwhelming problem; horses need a minimum thirty pounds of forage a day to maintain their health. When hundreds or thousands of horses are using the same limited pasture, the natural graze begins to disappear. Yet the relentless stream of coaches continued to arrive at way stations, looking for fresh well-fed horses and possibly a hot meal.

Ms Clinton Causes Islamic Radicals To Wet Their Trousers, From Laughter

By 50 Comments 1,562 views

Words actually mean things, especially code words. The Obama Administration has a simple code system; so simple in fact, even the illiterate Muslim can understand his intentions. These same expressions and phrases serve to reassure Americans who refuse to face the truth, as they willing delude themselves into accepting the code at face value. Thus the radical Islamic Fascist is encouraged and emboldened and the moderate Muslim sympathetic to American intentions in the Middle East begins to doubt the intention, strength, and resolve of America.

“Curiouser And Curiouser”, Cried Alice

By 17 Comments 562 views

“Curiouser and curiouser!” Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).

The most Left-wing, government supported media outlet in Britain, The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has refused to have a statue of George Orwell erected at its new facility in London.

Their reason: Orwell is “too Left-Wing”.

Hit The Road Barack, And Don’t You Come Back No More

By 19 Comments 779 views

It’s Newsweek, the title of the cover article reads, “Hit The Road, Barack”, and the Left has their collective panties tied in a knot. It has not a been pretty sight, but perhaps Newseek’s new editor, Tina Brown, has realized there is no honor or dignity in being another propaganda rag for a failed president and following him into oblivion and ignominy.
