2 VIDEOS LET US REMEMBER

May 25th, 2020

 

The following was shared with us by Susan Metts, the Mid-Atlantic Region Advancement Officer of the National Rifle Association in honor of Memorial Day.  Susan is also one of our conservative ladies and a very special friend !   Nancy

 

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” -President John F. Kennedy, 1961-1963

You may already know that Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Established after the Civil War, General John A. Logan, a Union Veteran’s Association leader, organized the first national Decoration Day in 1868. Coincidentally, two of his Union veteran peers established the National Rifle Association three years later.

The celebration of Decoration Day transformed into Memorial Day, and as we all assuredly know, it is still celebrated today.

Evoking strong emotions, many creative artists have commemorated Memorial Day to capture the spirit for all to remember. However, below are two special links that I found particularly moving. I hope you enjoy them too.

THE ARCTIC EMERGES AS A GEOGRAPHIC BATTLEGROUND

May 24th, 2020

 

The Arctic emerges as a geographic battleground

America’s engaging in a new ‘Cold’ War as Russian and China challenge U.S. interests in the’high north’
Jamie McIntyre   is a senior national security reporter for the Washington Examiner
May 14, 2020

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: 

The U.S. is only now focusing on the region after what the CSIS report termed “a decade of U.S. Arctic inactivity,” when the U.S. essentially watched from the sidelines as Russia and China methodically implemented economic and military policies that could profoundly alter the balance of power in the Arctic.

“It started with the Obama Arctic strategy, which I held up in a hearing,” said Sullivan. “It was 13 pages, six of which were pictures. Russia was mentioned once in a footnote. It was a joke.”

Sullivan said that, thanks to a bipartisan Arctic strategy mandated by Congress, the U.S. is getting back in the game, beginning with the building of six new Polar-class icebreakers.

Currently, the U.S. has only two icebreakers, but only one, the more than 40-year-old USCGC Polar Star, is in working order. The second ship is being used for parts.

The Russians, at last count, had 54.

Earlier this month, three U.S. Navy destroyers and a British warship conducted an exercise in the frigid waters of the Barents Sea, the first time U.S. surface ships have ventured into Russia’s Arctic backyard since the mid-1980s.

It comes as global warming is melting the polar ice cap, opening new sea routes and increasing competition for oil and mineral resources, with Russia, in particular, aggressively seeking to assert its preeminence in the region.

“Russia has really prioritized the Arctic as a region that is going to be so important for its future, both economically and militarily,” said Heather Conley, an Arctic expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Moscow is well aware, she said, that, in the next 30 years, “the country that controls the Arctic controls the world.”

Conley is one of the authors of “America’s Arctic moment,” the think tank’s recent report that details Russia’s increasing militarization of its islands in the Arctic Ocean in much the same way China has been militarizing islands in the South China Sea.

That includes rebuilding a naval base and installing a new, powerful radar on Russia’s Wrangel Island, located just 300 nautical miles from Alaska.

 

“Russia has returned to Soviet-era outposts and has built new military facilities in the Arctic Circle,” Adm. James Foggo, commander of U.S. Naval Forces in Europe, said in a podcast last year.

“Russia’s even built an icebreaker that can carry the Kalibr [cruise] missile,” said Foggo. “So, I’ve got to ask: Who builds an icebreaker with a missile battery on board?”

THE FIGHTER MADISON CAWTHORN

May 24th, 2020

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

The fighter

When Mark Meadows resigned from Congress on March 30 to become White House chief of staff, he vacated a coveted seat. North Carolina’s recently redrawn 11th Congressional District encompasses most of the state’s mountainous western region and tilts Republican despite the liberal city of Asheville at its center.

Of the 12 candidates on the Republican primary ballot in March, the only two who earned more than 10% of the vote were 62-year-old businesswoman Lynda Bennett and Madison Cawthorn, who will not meet the constitutional age requirement for Congress until his 25th birthday on Aug. 1. Because neither broke the requisite 30%, the contest to replace Meadows has led to a June 23 runoff election that will pit two generations of the GOP against each other.

Cawthorn and his story are well known in western North Carolina, where his familial roots extend to the Revolutionary War. Once a staffer for Meadows, he was nominated by the former congressman to attend the U.S. Naval Academy, but his plans came crashing down on April 3, 2014, when a catastrophic car accident left him partially paralyzed at the age of 18.

“When my accident happened, I had spent my entire life building my athletic ability, building my mental ability, making sure I could pass any tests I was ever given,” Cawthorn told the Washington Examiner. The homeschooling graduate had earned a full-ride ROTC scholarship from the U.S. Marine Corps. “I was the No. 1 pick in the whole nation. I had it all.”

“Everything was going great for me,” he continued. “I had a great family. I was extraordinarily healthy. Life couldn’t get much better for me.” The otherwise cheerful Cawthorn looked down sadly as he described the night when he was riding back with his friend from a spring break trip to Florida. “I’m asleep taking a nap, and I run into a wall at 70 miles per hour. My entire life was taken away from me.”

His friend had fallen asleep at the wheel of their SUV and plowed into a concrete road barrier. After his friend pulled him from the fiery wreck with the help of two bystanders, Cawthorn was flown to a trauma center in Daytona Beach. Remembering when he regained consciousness, he said, “I wake up and I can’t move my legs. All I see is my family around me, looking at me with nothing but pity.” That’s when he realized, “Wow, I’m really messed up, whatever’s going on.”

Cawthorn had been reclining with his legs up when they crashed, and the force of the impact snapped his spine. The accident burned him, shattered his ankle, broke his pelvis, and cost him a kidney. His internal organs were pushed up into his chest, crushing his lungs. “Both my lungs collapsed, so I couldn’t speak for a very long time,” he said, recalling how he learned to communicate with sign language. Only his head escaped injury. The doctors were amazed he survived.

THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF QUEENSLAND

The dubious conduct of an Australian university with Chinese ties shows the CCP’s long reach abroad.

The University of Queensland is what Australians call a “sandstone university,” something like the American Ivy League in prestige. Queensland consistently appears on lists of the world’s 100 best universities and is widely seen as one of the top three in Australia.

Lately, however, its cozy relationship with China has ignited a firestorm. Questions have been asked in Australia’s Parliament, and stories in the country’s leading newspapers and on its public television network have raked administrators over the coals. A Journal news story offers an overview of the scandal.

Queensland’s purgatory began last July during a peaceful student demonstration in support of Hong Kongers protesting for democracy and in solidarity with persecuted Uighurs in Xinjiang. The demonstrators were set upon by what observers said was a well-organized group of about 300 students and nonstudents, many shouting slogans in Chinese. As some filmed the rally, counterdemonstrators snatched megaphones from the pro-Hong Kong and pro-Uighur protesters and sought to break up the rally. Punches were thrown.

Xu Jie, China’s consul general in Brisbane, commended the counter-demonstrators for their “acts of patriotism,” while blaming the pro-Hong Kong students for “igniting anger and sparking protests from Chinese students.” In a highly unusual step, Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne warned all foreign diplomats in Australia to respect the rights of free speech and peaceful protest. Amid all this, the press reported that Mr. Xu had recently been appointed an adjunct professor at the university.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: WE DON’T KNOW HOW CLOSE WE CAME TO THE COUP SUCCEEDING

May 20th, 2020

 

This response to a caller from Rush Limbaugh came from Rush’s facebook page.  We have witnessed an incredible attempted coup against a sitting president.  Whether any of the culprits will serve jail time is up for question BUT the reputations of the FBI, Justice Department, CIA and Obama and his administration have all been shredded.  Obama wanted his legacy to survive for decades — I don’t think this is exactly what he had in mind !!!  Please share and help to keep Obama’s legacy alive !   Cheers  Nancy 

RUSH: Bill in McHenry, Illinois. You’re next. I’m glad you waited, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush, and 43 million dittos for you, sir, with prayers and thoughts always.

RUSH: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very, very much. I appreciate that.

CALLER: You bet. Just a thought that I asked Bo about. With Attorney General Barr and Mr. Durham still hovering over the target, we’re getting more transparency in government with documents being declassified and all that. Can we sit here and predict which one of these rats is going to turn state’s evidence or start squealing on the others to save their own hides? Is there someone we can pick out of these smarmy individuals that might walk the plank?

RUSH: I have been asking a variation of that question for a long time, such as which of these people will ultimately decide they don’t want to go to jail for James Comey? But, you know, as time goes on here… (sigh) Here we go optimism/pessimism. I really… When I answer this question honestly, it makes people mad and they start calling me and dumping on me like I’m responsible for it.

This subject came up. My friend Andy McCarthy was on Fox and was asked what kind of accountability there’s gonna be for all of these people, and he said he thinks not much, that there already has been, a lot of them have lost their jobs, a lot of them have been publicly humiliated. But he’s not of the opinion that there are going to be actual trials of people. I hope he’s wrong. He’s making the statement based on experience as a federal prosecutor.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You know, as to this business of flipping, you know, traditionally that doesn’t happen. Traditionally, leftists do not flip on each other. In fact, can anybody name for me the tell-all book from the Clinton administration? There was none. Can anybody identify for me the tell-all book from the Obama administration? There isn’t one.

They just don’t do it.

They don’t break ranks.
