OK, folks…that’s it.  Our world is crumbling around us and the Yahoo headline today is…are you ready for this?:

Siobhan Magnus, the quirky contestant with the big voice, is cut from “American Idol.”

Now, I ASK you…WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO??!


That’s it for now…I must collect myself until I can compose a suitable discourse on something other than who just got kicked off American Idle Idol.

God help us, America. What HAVE we come to?

FOR INSTANCE…AND JUST FOR STARTERS…

Here’s a little quiz for ya’ll.  h/t to Bones.  Guess who wrote each…scroll down for answers at the bottom!

a.) “The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may commence persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated that the time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are honest and ourselves united. From the conclusion of [their] war [for independence, a nation begins] going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of [that] war will remain on [them] long, will be made heavier and heavier, till [their] rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.”

b.) “In the highest antiquity, the people did not know that there were rulers. In the next age they loved them and praised them. In the next they feared them; in the next they despised them.”

c.) “And how we burned in the camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall a half dozen people with axes, hammers pokers or whatever was at hand…”

d.) Violence is the Final Outcome of Government Tyranny

Today was the 30 year anniversary of Desert One, also known as the Iran hostage rescue attempt.  Our very own Third Wave Dave wrote about it here as did Rokdrop.  Tragically, it devolved into a disaster leaving 8 Americans dead and Iranians who tried to help left to unknown fates.

A brief account from one who was in the Marine Corps at the time of that operation, once again, H/T to Bones:

I was in the Marine Corps at the time. That op cost me 52 hours w/o sleep and nearly cost my marriage. We were locked down on base for nearly a week prior and just after it all went down. Sent over a dozen people and a lot of parts and supplies along for the ride on this op. I worked in hydraulics. 6055/6152/6153. Had a chance to go along on Desert One, myself, but they wouldn’t tell us what the ‘detail’ was about, so I didn’t ‘volunteer.’ Corporal Davis went along for the ride, instead.

…and I was nowhere near the theatre of operations.
A friend of mine has a lot of info about that disaster located here:

Jimmy Bancroft was in HMM-165 out of K-Bay when I was in HMH-361 in Tustin, CA. I was later stationed with HMM-165, myself, and worked with and  knew some of the men who were more directly involved. At one remove or another, almost every USMC helicopter squadron on the West Coast and the FMFPAC provided material support or manpower for this op. Another friend I keep in touch with, who was also more directly involved, is Tim Harrington. Both men are still politically involved and are still keeping their Oaths to The Constitution.
As always, many thanks to all who served,  on this day and always.

YESSSSS!

Second day of good news for our servicemen!

UPDATE JUST IN: 2d Navy SEAL, Jonathan Keefe, acquitted in Baghdad trial!!!!!  Let us hope and pray that Matthew McCabe, whose trial is scheduled to begin on May 3, is also exonerated.

God Bless Justice–it’s been a long road but it finally happened for Sgt. Larry Hutchins yesterday in military appeals court.

A most gratifiying result: CONVICTION OVERTURNED!

From North Carolina Times:

A military appeals court on Thursday overturned the murder conviction of a Camp Pendleton Marine who had been found guilty of leading his squad in the 2006 kidnapping and slaying of an Iraqi man in the village of Hamdania.

The U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Appeals said Thursday that it made the ruling because an attorney for Sgt. Larry Hutchins’ was improperly dismissed prior to the man’s 2007 trial.

That act alone is sufficient to set aside Hutchins’ conviction for the April 2006 incident and erase his 11-year prison sentence, the nine-member court found.

Backstory:

Advocates Call Iraq Marine’s Court Martial and Conviction Into Question

Former Marines investigating the case say there is far more than meets the eye; the court martial is currently under appeal and review.

(SALEM, Ore.) – A Marine convicted for murder in Iraq is receiving increasing public support by those who believe he is not guilty. Marine Sergeant Lawrence Hutchins has been sentenced to 15-years for the killings in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq.

Friends say Hutchins is innocent

Advocates say a number of the government’s dirty secrets bear their load on this Marine, considered by many as a scapegoat.

The particular case in Iraq involves the questionable death of one Iraqi civilian male. Sgt. Lawrence Hutchins III’s parents are not taking it in stride; meeting recently with the head of Marine Corps forces in the Middle East in the wake of their son’s conviction for killing an Iraqi civilian. Marine Lt. Gen James Mattis has been asked to look into inconsistencies that emerged during the recent court martial and consider evidence that was not included in the trial.

Tim Harrington is a personal friend of the Hutchins family who has worked tirelessly on the case.

Advocates of Hutchins like Harrington say the Marine is not the only American combat vet dealing with the “scapegoat” issue; the case of an Army Ranger, SSgt. Ray Girouard, bears unusual similarities to Hutchins’.

Girouard was convicted in March of three counts of negligent homicide for the deaths of three detainees after an Army raid in Iraq in May 2006. Girouard maintains that he was only following orders, as does Hutchins.

Lawrence Hutchins has been in solitary confinement in the Camp Pendleton brig since his conviction and sentencing by a military panel last month. He is now out of solitary confinement. It is reported that he will remain in a multi-man cell until the government decides where he will serve his 15-year sentence.

But a lawyer for Hutchins is preparing papers seeking clemency. It seems there were many questionable aspects to his General Court martial. The case was also automatically forwarded to the Navy-Marine Court of Criminal Appeal for review.

The Deloitte connection

Americans are well aware of the billions of dollars of income that the Iraq War has meant for defense contractors. They might be surprised to learn however, that this relatively quiet “accounting” firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu has been active in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq for many years. Their psychologists were used to examine Marine Sgt. Lawrence Hutchins.

Marine Sergeant Lawrence Hutchins during his court martial

A group of former marines have been studying the history of the Al Anbar province during 2003-2006. They believe they have put together a fairly clear view of a somewhat larger picture that takes the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu firm and military court martial practices into account.

For the most part, Deloitte claims to be an accounting firm.

Former Marine Warren Bonesteel alleges that they were involved in the outcome of Hutchin’s court martial.

“What we do know for certain is that Deloitte was – and is – directly and indirectly involved in Al Anbar province, and, for our present purposes, specifically in Haditha. We also know that NCIS uses contracted Deloitte psychologists. The same psychologists may have been used by both defense and prosecution legal teams in order to examine the Marines in question. We know that NCIS operatives, ‘managers’, and even the NCIS director himself, have gone to work for Deloitte in the two and some odd years since the incident in question.

Bonesteel says NCIS was in control of intelligence operations in Al Anbar during 2004, including the publishing of propaganda. Problems associated with that effort were later blamed on the platoon/company of combat Marines in question. Bonesteel points out that combat Marines don’t do twenty million dollars worth of publishing. “We also know that Deloitte or its subsidiaries and alliances handle the ‘auditing’ and business ‘consulting’ for a great many of the contractors and sub-contractors in Al Anbar province as well as in other areas of Iraq.

These include construction, healthcare, Internet Technology, transportation, private security firms, food and facilities management, oil industry manufacturing and experts, hydroelectric, banking, labor, education, etc., and so on. NCIS also has several other contracts with Deloitte and its subsidiaries. He says his research also shows that men like William Delahunt, John Murtha and others, including most of those who sit on various appropriations committees, receive more than half of their campaign contributions from Deloitte and from its subsidiaries or “alliances.”

Others on that list include Walter B. Jones, Trent Lott and Nancy Pelosi.

“We know that Deloitte directly or indirectly handles a great many, if not most, of the contracts going into the Pentagon, including retirement, life insurance and healthcare. We know that Deloitte also handles the money and business consulting for most of the companies and conglomerates who contract with the Pentagon. We know that Deloitte and it’s subsidiaries and ‘alliances’ have lobbyists all over D.C. and in every state capitol in America.”

He says they have offices and lobbyists in nearly every national capitol and, seemingly, in almost every provincial and state capitol in the world.

“We know that men like Delahunt also have direct and indirect connections to known terrorist supporters and to lobbyists with both direct and indirect ties to Deloitte. Among these groups and lobbyists are individuals, banks, and groups directly and indirectly associated with CAIR, the ISNA, MAS, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim individuals, groups and organizations on a national and international basis. Deloitte is also involved directly and indirectly handling financing for those same groups and organizations.”

Bonesteel says most of these individuals, and almost all of the organizations, are known to actively support Hamas, Hezbollah and Al Queda, among other terrorist and jihadist groups. “And we have Delahunt’s staff lawyer currently sitting in the courtrooms of these court martials, and allowed to wander about them quite freely, including ‘advising’ the prosecution’s legal teams.” He says that Deloitte has had – and continues to have – business dealings with Iran, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, and others committed to the open or subversive destruction of America.

“We know that several of those nations are actively involved in supporting terrorist operations in Iraq and around the world.” He says that what the don’t know at the moment, is what specific event or series of events, or series of ‘business deal’ began what he calls the slide towards having our fighting men and women prosecuted for ‘murdering’ the enemies of America in known combat zones.

“Killing the enemy is what they get paid for. In a combat zone, on an active battlefield, killing the other guy first has always been considered to be a measure of success by military strategists and tacticians throughout history.”

The Marine’s friend says that even with the above mentioned issues aside, there are glaring problems with the military justice system.

“For example, there is no outside accountability, and the military’s Senior SNCO and staff level officer ranks are relatively small, almost inbred, communities. NCIS has little or no accountability to anyone, anywhere. NCIS has also begun ‘civilian’ operations within the United States, most notably within the state of Washington. JAG isn’t much better.”

He says the public needs to be on the lookout over “questionable” principles employed during these Iraq War court martials. That includes future NCIS and JAG officers’ promotions, future options regarding choices of military assignments and deployments, and future civilian employment/careers and other forms of “remuneration.”

Bonesteel suspects that within two to four years, they and/or their proteges will make surprising leaps in their careers and financial well-being.

“In any case, we well understand why Delahunt, Walter B Jones and a dozen others on both sides of the aisle have completely ignored our efforts to bring to light evidence that will exonerate the Haditha Marines…and prove their innocence. General Mattis is also quite aware of what we have presented.” As for the case of Army SSgt Ray Girouard, the town of Sweetwater, Tennessee is maintaining a vigilant show of support. A sign hanging in the middle of town states: “SSgt. Ray Girouard Fought For Us, Now We Fight For Him.”

“This is such a small, close community. He grew up in this community and they just felt responsible for Ray,” one of his neighbors said.

In this small Tennessee town fundraisers and cash donations have flowed in, allowing them to hire a private attorney for Girouard and help his family pay expenses. Despite his conviction, the community continues to believe in Girouard’s innocence and say they support his ongoing bid for clemency.

In the meanwhile, citizens of Sweetwater are paying for Girouard to get a college education while serving a 10 year prison term.

Larry Orr is the pastor of the First Assembly of God church in Sweetwater. He says the town is conservative and pro-establishment for the most part, but they quickly sensed something was wrong, based on what they knew of Girouard.

“We all felt pretty early on there we were left with plenty of reason to believe that our guy did not out and out murder anybody,” Orr stated.

The local VFW in Hutchin’s hometown quietly assisted the family with travel expenses. Friends have provided support through the sale of “Free Larry” T-shirts. Harrington hopes to expand the effort in the weeks to come. Friends of the family hope to generate support for Hutchins with a town meeting that will take a closer look at the case and the inconsistencies that developed during last week’s court martial.

According to the Marine’s advocates, “The fight has just begun.”

May the Truth continue to shine its way on all of America and our servicemen upon whom the vagaries of political correctness and political expediency have fallen and may all those thusly incarcerated soon be free.

And, VERY special thanks to all those who have worked so hard to free Sgt. Hutchins and all wrongly incarcerated troops…YOU know who you are…TIM…and that coffee drinking, cigarette smoking guy we all know and love…a VERY special H/T to you!

Oh, and please see Sgt. Tim Harrington, USMC, ret. http://citizentsunami.wordpress.com …he’s got the goods, the moxie and the honor the USMC demands!

…Biden as Pres…

Barack Obama, all your secrets are belong to US

Redactions Revealed: The Six Secrets You Need to Know From the Obama Subpoena Request  Update:

Judge calls emergency meeting over redaction errors. Former governor Rod Blagojevich’s defense team asked Thursday to issue a trial subpoena to the President of the United States of America. The motion, intended to be heavily redacted, was improperly edited — the full document was easily viewable if the text is copied and pasted to another document (an error first revealed on Capitol Fax).

Below, the six revelations the redacted portions were meant to conceal.

1.   Obama may [MAY??!] have lied about conversations with convicted fraudster Tony Rezko; Blagojevich’s lawyers allege that Rezko admitted breaking the law by contributing “a large sum of cash” to a public official. Blagojevich’s attorneys say that public official is Obama. Obama said that Rezko never relayed a request from a lobbyist to hold a fundraiser in favor of favorable legislative action. But the point may be moot: regardless of Obama talking/not talking to Rezko, Blagojevich’s attorneys say that Obama refused the request regardless.  Redacted portion: However, the defense has a good faith belief that Mr. Rezko, President Obama’s former friend, fund-raiser, and neighbor told the FBI and the United States Attorneys a different story about President Obama. In a recent in camera proceeding, the government tendered a three paragraph letter indicating that Rezko “has stated in interviews with the government that he engaged in election law violations by personally contributing a large sum of cash to the campaign of a public official who is not Rod Blagojevich. … Further, the public official denies being aware of cash contributions to his campaign by Rezko or others and denies having conversations with Rezko related to cash contributions. … Rezko has also stated in interviews with the government that he believed he transmitted a quid pro quo offer from a lobbyist to the public official, whereby the lobbyist would hold a fundraiser for the official in exchange for favorable official action, but that the public official rejected the offer. The public official denies any such conversation. In addition, Rezko has stated to the government that he and the public official had certain conversations about gaming legislation and administration, which the public official denies having had.

Redacted footnote: The defense has a good faith belief that this public official is Barack Obama.

2.   Obama may have overtly recommended Valerie Jarret for his Senate seat.  Blagojevich’s defense team basically alleges that Obama told a certain labor union official that he (Obama) would support Valerie Jarrett’s candidacy for the Senate seat. Jarrett, referred to as “Senate Candidate B”, is now a senior advisor to the president.

Redacted portion: Yet, despite President Obama stating that no representatives of his had any part of any deals, labor union president told the FBI and the United States Attorneys that he spoke to labor union official on November 3, 2008 who received a phone message from Obama that evening. After labor union official listened to the message labor union official told labor union president “I’m the one”. Labor union president took that to mean that labor union official was to be the one to deliver the message on behalf of Obama that Senate Candidate B was his pick. (Labor union president 302, February 2, 2009, p. 7). Labor union official told the FBI and the United States Attorneys “Obama expressed his belief that [Senate Candidate B] would be a good Senator for the people of Illinois and would be a candidate who could win re-election. [Labor union official] advised Obama that [labor union official] would reach out to Governor Blagojevich and advocate for [Senate Candidate B] … [Labor union official] called [labor union president] and told [labor union president] that Obama was aware that [labor union official] would be reaching out to Blagojevich.” (Labor union official 302, February 3, 2009 p. 3).

3.   A supporter of President Obama may have offered quid pro quo on a Jarrett senate appointment

Redacted portion: Supporter of Presidential Candidate Obama is mentioned in a phone call on November 3, 2008, having offered “fundraising” in exchange for Senate Candidate B for senator (Blagojevich Home Phone Call # 149).

4.   Obama maintained a list of good Senate candidates.

Redacted portion: President-elect Obama also suggested Senate Candidate A to Governor Blagojevich. John Harris told the FBI and the United States Attorneys that he spoke to President’s Chief of Staff on November 12, 2008. Harris took notes of the conversation and wrote that President’s Chief had previously worked as Blagojevich’s press secretary. Obama agreed of Staff told Harris that Senate Candidate A was acceptable to Obama as a senate pick. (Harris handwritten notes, OOG1004463) President’s Chief of Staff told the FBI that “he could not say where but somewhere it was communicated to him that” Senate Candidate A was a suggested candidate viewed as one of the four “right” candidates “by the Obama transition team.”

5.  Rahm Emanuel allegedly floated Cheryl Jackson’s name for the Senate sea.

Redacted portion: President’s Chief of Staff told the FBI that he had a conversation discussing the Senate seat with Obama on December 7, 2008 in Obama’s car. President’s Chief of Staff told the FBI “Obama expressed concern about Senate Candidate D being appointed as Senator.  [President’s Chief of Staff] suggested they might need an expanded list to possibly include names of African Americans that came out of the business world. [President’s Chief of Staff] thought he suggested Senate Candidate E who was the head of the Urban League and with President’s Chief of Staff’s suggestion.

6.   Obama had a secret phone call with Blagojevich.

Redacted portion: President-elect Obama also spoke to Governor Blagojevich on December 1, 2008 in Philadelphia. On Harris Cell Phone Call # 139, John Harris and Governor’s legal counsel discuss a conversation Blagojevich had with President-elect Obama. The government claims a conspiracy existed from October 22, 2008 continuing through December 9, 2008.

That conversation is relevant to the defense of the government’s theory of an ongoing conspiracy. Only Rod Blagojevich and President Obama can testify to the contents of that conversation. The defense is allowed to present evidence that corroborates the defendant’s testimony. BY Ward Room Staff // 2 hours ago

Well folks, not to be waxing cynical or anything, but…what else can one think when news of the new Patriots Hit List hits the stands?

According to Joe Kovacs’ April 21, 2010 report in WorldNetDaily, strong Left leaning Southern Poverty Law Center has released a “List of Americans That Should Be Watched.”  On it, included in a list of 40 other Americans, are such luminaries as Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachman, Joseph Farah, WorldNetDaily editor in chief, and Ron Paul…oh, and any other American who dares to place their hand over their heart during the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem…

According to Kovacs’ report,

In its new report titled, “Meet the Patriots,” the Southern Poverty Law Center states: “In the last year and a half, militias and the larger antigovernment ‘patriot’ movement have exploded, accompanied by the rapid expansion of other sectors of the radical right. This spectacular growth is the result of several factors, including anger over major political, demographic and economic changes in America, along with the popularization of radical ideas and conspiracy theories by ostensibly mainstream politicians and media commentators.”

This, of course, is not surprising, given the strong commitment to bias and vilification toward anyone not in agreement with the tenets of the SPLC.  However, it is an indication that they are stepping up their efforts to join main stream media’s desperate attempt to ridicule and thus defuse the large group of Americans who are frightened for their Constitution and angry at the corruption that prevails in the current administration, which many doubt is even constitutional, lawful or legitimate. [See Newsbusters April 13] “How the Media Have Dismissed and Disparaged the Tea Party Movement.”

JB Williams, journalist, patriot and long time champion of our Constitution, reports similarly at Newsbull: Is the Southern Poverty Law Center Terrorizing Decent American Patriots?

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is very influential in the current administration, almost single handedly responsible for defining “domestic terrorists” for the Department of Homeland Security and ratcheting up the racial rhetoric like never before in U.S. history, in the name of so-called “social justice.”

In the latest diatribe to come out of the Montgomery Alabama based mini-ACLU, titled – Rage on the Right – The Year in Hate and Extremism – the group lays out their justification for striking fear in the hearts of every Tea Party, 912 and town hall activist, angry over the federal governments mishandling of their country.

The SPLC report opens with – “The radical right caught fire last year, as broad-based populist anger at political, demographic and economic changes in America ignited an explosion of new extremist groups and activism across the nation.”

According to the report – “The anger seething across the American political landscape — over racial changes in the population, soaring public debt and the terrible economy, the bailouts of bankers and other elites, and an array of initiatives by the relatively liberal Obama Administration that are seen as “socialist” or even “fascist” — goes beyond the radical right. The “tea parties” and similar groups that have sprung up in recent months cannot fairly be considered extremist groups, but they are shot through with rich veins of radical ideas, conspiracy theories and racism.”

So…if you’re on such a list…consider yourself in fine company…and consider the source…
