Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

The following was not meant to be a blog. It was a comment directed at me, but the message rings loud and clearly, and should be read by all.

Danny, I can only agree with you on most things. The problem as always is convincing others who spend their days agreeing but not believing. What do I mean by that? Well, day after day I look on twitter, I read essays by some of the most intelligent thoughtful people in sources ranging from David Horowitz and his various outlets, Thomas Sowell, the people of PJTV, like Bill Whittle, the Daily Mail (UK), The Guardian, WaPo, Huffpo, comments from articles written ect, ect. I'm sure everyone gets the picture and does the same.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others were cowards and hypocrites. They never had the courage to recognize their motives. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. How does one man assert his power over another? By making him suffer. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement – a world of fear and treachery and torment. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.”
George Orwell-1984 ... Hat Tip to Patrick Van Nuland.

I have long warned about the leftist political agenda that is leading our nation to ruin, about the pro communist tendencies among many of our residents, and of the apathy that has long infected this nation. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Today I shall speak through such pictures, keeping my own thoughts to a bare minimum.

There have been those who have at times regarded me as being arrogant, irreverent, intransigent, and obstinate, and I must confess; Guilty as charged to all of the above, but history has provided my role models and none of them stood as reeds, bending to accommodate each passing wind. All that stand erect eventually fall, even the mighty oak, but it falls not with a whine and a whimper, but with a thunderous crash that reverberates far and wide. So too shall it be it for those of unbending principles, for unlike the reed, they stand strong before a battering storm, held erect by their beliefs, their ideals, their courage, and their strengths. This world has been built by the men of the mind, those with purpose, and those with vision. Sadly it is being brought down by their counterparts, the weak, the spineless, the craven, and those who are devoid of any semblance of morality.

Choosing the title for this essay proved to be a bit of a challenge, as I also considered 'To Reach The Unreachable', reflecting my love of the song 'The Impossible Dream' and my years of effort to reach those who choose not to know. I could be callous like so many and shrug off my failure with the stock phrase of 'Well, that is their loss.' I am not callous and must regard my failing to reach them as my failure in the grand scheme of things, as reaching the frightened and confused was my whole intent when I began blogging on the internet.

In writing I frequently use the term 'The Big Picture'. That term dates back to a television series of the 1950s produced by the U.S. Army that was designed to inform the American public about the events that occurred during WWII. The title, as the name implies, tries to depict the war as viewed from the flag officers' viewpoint rather than isolated events as seen from the individual foot soldier, company or division levels. My greatest frustration as a writer has been my inability to get my readers to grasp the big picture of today. Instead they tend to focus on, and be distracted, by isolated events and cannot view those events as part of a larger tapestry, all connected in one fashion or the other, whether occurring in St. Louis, Washington DC, Liverpool England, or Kabul Afghanistan.

I have long expressed my doubts about there even being a Presidential election in 2016. Now I am certain of it. Whether the topic is warfare or politics it is always a good idea to allow your enemy to feel comfortable in his delusions and wishful thinking. The agenda that has been directing the course of this nation is very adept in this field of misdirection. I have long written that the progressive movement would never again allow a man such as Reagan to assume office and upset their plans. Senator Ted Cruz, one such political leader, has now become the conservative American firebrand, and the last great hope for a nation in shambles.

Tuesday, December 16, 2014


I do believe that Ted Cruz is one of the most brilliant elected officials in Washington DC. He is undoubtedly one of our greatest patriots, and totally fearless, and he has just done something that is totally unorthodox. He started a fight that he knew in advance that he would lose. That makes no sense at all unless one has a devious side and, being totally dedicated to this nation and its Constitution, has decided to expose the treasonous members of both parties now serving in the Senate. What could be the motive. Shall we go there?

If you have never been to war, you could never possibly comprehend the true soul draining meaning of combat fatigue. It sets in as day after week after month of stress and fear and assorted horrors wears on a man's soul until he is losing the very will to live. Now I am not saying that the conservative American public are suffering combat fatigue, but I am saying that they have been fighting a long, so far bloodless war, that began the day that Hussein Obama was elected. They, you, I, all of us to one degree or the other have been opposing tyranny, and the fact of the matter is that we are all weary to the bone, and the real fight has not yet begun, but believe me now, it nears. Do not be taken by surprise.

Thursday, December 11, 2014


When I begin a series of essays I generally have an overall view where each segment will lead. This one is an exception to that rule as it is the result of numerous comments made by a group of fellow patriots firmly adhering to the concept of Ted Cruz being elected in 2016 and questioning various positions that I put forth in my last installment of Conservatives In Fantasy Land.

Wednesday, December 10, 2014


The term 'Thirty pieces of silver' always invokes the image of betrayal, and so you probably know where this essay is leading. 

I have long written of my belief that there is NO political solution to the problems we face today. This one essay, Tahrir Square U.S.A., dates back to February of 2014. Allow me to offer an excerpt: 'I make no secret of the fact that I have absolutely no belief that there is a political solution to today's problems. No election is going to alter the course of this nation. If that course is to be altered it will be done only with an uprising of our people as we witnessed occurring in Tahrir Square in Egypt. Anything less and we are simply delaying until tomorrow what should have been done years ago.'

I write this the day after December 7, 2014.  Many years have passed since the day of 'infamy.' A day that many vowed would never be forgotten. But like so many dates of history and the importance, we have forgotten. On many occasions we have neglected to pass on the history of our country. The forming of values in this great nation. In many cases we have forgotten those who fought for our country. Men and women who believe in the values of our country. I also have to admit I didn't always pass on to others what I know of history.

My last essay Conservatives In Fantasy Land Part One was but a brief summation of some of the predictions that I have made over the last five years, predictions I might add that have already come true or are in the process of coming into full bloom right now. It would be so nice if I had to work harder to find vindicating evidence of my beliefs but such evidence is overwhelming and there are times I simply hate being right. Sadly most Americans slumber on. Some are hard core liberals and progressives with an agenda to fulfill and an axe to grind, but so very many are quite simply deluded patriots, content to spend their time on the internet discussing who they want to vote for in 2016, and discussing the latest hoax.

Thursday, December 4, 2014


Nearly five years ago when the battle cry was 'Vote em Out' I was warning of civil war and the utter futility of believing that our elected officials would support the American public. Since then we have had the election of 2010, regarded by many at that time to be a victory. Also, at that time, I was writing that it was a victory in name only as the RINOs of the GOP were giving false hope to America. An (R) by a politician's name is very deceptive, as that (R) misleads the gullible. False hope, by the way, leads only to despair and anguish, but Americans, being what they are were immediately looking forward to 2012 when we would really 'Vote em Out'. Yes sir, we were going to show Obama the door, marked EXIT.

History tells us of a man who is possibly the world's best known bank robber, and in an odd sort of way I rather admire him...for his honesty. Allow me to explain: Folklore tells us that a reporter once asked Mr. Sutton why he robbed banks and he replied, "Because that's where the money is." In a book he later published 'Where The Money Was', ole Willie denied ever having said that, crediting the imaginative reporter with coining the phrase. What he did tell us well indicates a certain degree of honesty about his chosen profession: "As to what actually motivated Sutton to hold up banks, as he said in 'Where the Money Was': "Why did I rob banks? Because I enjoyed it. I loved it. I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life. I enjoyed everything about it so much that one or two weeks later I'd be out looking for the next job. But to me the money was the chips, that's all."

In May of 2011 I wrote an essay predicting a very grim future for America, and for that matter, the entire world. In that essay I predicted that there would be many millions of Latinos streaming across our southern border, seeking a free lifestyle at the expense of our people. Their role in the destruction of our nation is essential, but there is more to the narrative than readily meets the eye, for they also rush to their own doom. They, the gullible invasion force, face the same dangers as we the gullible voters. The U.S. Census Bureau tells us that our present population is 317 million people. Obama seems intent on importing another 34 million young immigrants from the south. This will result in anarchy and chaos and a collapse of our entire system. I now ask you a question...How can a collapsed nation feed, clothe, and shelter 350 million people involved in all out civil war? I answered that question nearly four years ago in the essay I have now chosen to repost...The New Road To A New Holocaust.

Thursday, November 20, 2014


I have not written anything in two weeks as I am so incredibly tired. Not to worry, as I have been just as tired before and have learned to find strength in my alter ego, Don Quixote, a mad man with a dream; 'The Impossible Dream' to be exact, for in that dream I find the strength to go on, undaunted by overwhelming odds, ever ready to deal with whatever obstacle that lie in my path.

Perhaps at times I am overly critical of my fellow man as they tarry in the face of grave danger, or seek hope where none is to be found. They search for answers while asking the wrong questions, and seek solace in a world gone mad, all the time they are looking for someone to lead them when it is they who should look deep within their own soul to find the strength and courage to lead others.

I have the distinct honor of introducing Rex Foster to my readers, as a man who disagrees with what I wrote in my last essay 'Freedom Of Speech...A Gift Of God?'. He not only disagrees but states his case with clarity and reason. This is not the first time that he and I have had opposing viewpoints as Rex is an outstanding patriot with strong points of view. I have long compared my relationship with him to that of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams as they were renowned for their differing opinions but until they died, both on the same day, July 4, 1826, each held the other in the highest regard. Without further ado I give you the thoughts of my friend Rex Foster:


Free Speech! Earlier today I saw a comment in a group that read..."God given right to free speech". I must dispute that premise. Many men died during our Revolutionary War for the right to speak freely. The concept later spread back to Europe and became implanted as a doctrine of civilized men. Now it is being taken away, not by God, but by the powers that be that once tolerated this freedom. Throughout history, until 1776, people were allowed to speak if it did not offend the monarch, the Caesar, the king, the Emperor, or the church. Free speech is not a gift of God. It is a concept born of the philosophers of the enlightenment, implemented by the Founding Fathers, and paid for with the blood of a people who were mad as hell vowing not to take it anymore.

Two years ago during the last Presidential election we read of voting machines misbehaving and turning Republican votes to Democrat votes before the voter's eyes. Again this is occurring and we are being told that the machines need to be re-calibrated. Something, my friends, is terribly wrong with our voting machines but it is not quite what people think. The fact of the matter is that the situation is far more diabolical than meets the eye. Hint ... Big Brother is laughing. Continue reading and I shall explain that cryptic remark...

Tuesday, October 28, 2014


If you read my last essay, You Can't Fix Stupid, you know, unless you are living in a world of total disillusionment, that no matter what the outcome of the 2014 elections, nothing is going to be altered. A few names, a few faces, and a little rhetoric, will perhaps change, but the choreography and the play will continue unabated. The die is cast and the downward spiral of civilization cannot be altered by you, me, or the best intentioned politician. In short, the transformation, not only for the United States but of all of western nations is proceeding on schedule. The one difference that will soon be apparent is the pace is about to quicken.

Many look at today's headlines, the economic situation, our domestic agenda and foreign affairs, and wonder how in the world we ever got into such an incomprehensible quagmire of despair, fear, and hopelessness. The answer is really quite simple ... Philosophy. Throughout history great nations have risen and fallen due to the philosophy they embrace or abandon. While the masses generally feel that the topic of philosophy is beyond their understanding, whether they know it or not, everyone, whether for good or bad, lives by a philosophy, most of which are destructive.

Recently I took a trip to Washington state for the purpose of seeing a loved one before everything goes to hell here in the United States. All things considered it was perhaps the greatest nightmare scenario of my life as I learned a great deal about many of the so called 'conservatives' of this nation and how so many actively support the evil that is destroying us. I am talking about our freedom of choice and the assault that is taking place on it. Allow me to explain...

Being an old school patriot I flatly refuse to refer to Hussein Obama as either President or Commander in Chief. He holds the office of President but leads not in the ways of America. He has the position of Commander in Chief and is in the process of destroying the greatest military the world has ever known. Lately there has been a great deal of discussion about his so called Latte Salute. So what! I would naturally expect a real Commander in Chief to learn military protocol which requires one to empty his right hand before rendering a military salute. I do not expect this from Hussein as I do not regard him fit to lead our nation's warriors. What more can you expect from a Marxist oriented community organizer. Alinsky would be proud while I feel only contempt.

I was recently reading an essay by one of our great patriots, Andrew C. McCarthy, and encountered a term he used that I had never seen before: Transnational Progressives. I knew immediately what he was referring to as I had often written about the topic under a different title ... The New World Order. Henceforth I shall refrain from referencing the NWO as mention of this movement gives the leftists an attack tool of conspiracy theory. Mister McCarthy's chosen phrase is far more defensible and accurate. Researching transnational progressivism led me to Wikipedia(disappointing results) and to other sources that eventually took me to Amazon and the book 'Sovereignty Or Submission' by John Fonte. The subtitle is very revealing of the book's contents ... 'Will Americans Rule Themselves Or Be Ruled By Others?'

Wednesday, September 17, 2014


One of my more intellectual friends from Norway recently brought up the topic of mankind's tendency toward denial in in the face a reality that simply will not fit into their perceptions of what the world should be. That form of escapism takes its toll. That condition is properly known as cognitive dissonance, and it runs roughshod over what we all know to be fact. Those facts if accepted, however, lead us to the inevitable conclusion that the world as we know it is ending and tomorrow's world more closely resembles a nightmare from Dante than the dreams of our Founders. Consequently most of our people are living in a state of denial and without fail, denial always leads to ruin.

Sunday, September 14, 2014


Were I to define myself it would have to be as a philosopher, a scientist, a historian, a writer and poet, a patriot, a warrior, an idealist, and a fool. That last distinction has only recently been added to the list, due primarily to the fact that in holding onto my idealism for so long, I have ignored the fact that the ideals I treasure still apply to me but do not extend to most of my fellow Americans as I once believed. Accepting this reality has no doubt struck me to the core but even in the face of that reality my head is bloody, but unbowed, as the poem states.

Friday, September 5, 2014


I recently read an expose of the New World Order concept and the author was convinced that he had once and for all laid that absurd notion to rest. Said author took one crackpot article regarding the NWO, sliced and diced its nonsensical precepts, and successfully proceeded to expose that second author as the fool that he is. Exposing fools is easy, connecting the dots on an agenda promoted not by fools, but by a few diabolical geniuses, is somewhat more challenging. Never one to take the easy route I maintain my belief that the NWO is alive and well, designing a future of subservience for mankind that few shall enjoy.

REMEMBERING A HERO Submitted by Shannon Ward

On August 5, 2014 we, as a nation, were notified of the death of a man who served his country proudly since 1980, in the United States Army. Major General Harold J. Greene was killed in Afghanistan by a member of the Afghan Security Forces. As Major General he is the highest ranking military official to die on foreign soil under hostile conditions since the Vietnam War. He is also the highest ranking military member to die since since Lt. General Timothy Maude, who died as a result of the hostile act of September 11, 2001.


Somewhere out there in that nether world between reality, denial, confusion, and ignorance, there flits a dark shadow cast by the hellish future that lies before us. Some few already perceive that shadow while most prefer to turn away, unwilling to acknowledge the fact that this future world of ruin, decadence, and decay, is an unavoidable outcome of our apathetic way of life. No amount of wishful thinking, bargaining, negotiating, or voting, is going to make one iota of difference as darkness and despair descends upon Planet Earth.

APATHY OF AMERICA Submitted by Shannon Ward

Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto has a quote attributed to him that cannot be substantiated. It is in regards to the quote "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." Did he say it? Maybe, but maybe not. Now we have the left wanting us to give up our weapons. They go after law abiding citizens who happen to own guns because of a few who use a gun in the most heinous manner. Those who used weapons in this heinous manner are among other things mentally disturbed, those who look for "gun free zones" as the perfect place to vent their anger at the world. They are the poster children for evil.

As an American I was brought up believing in the founding of our nation; Based on the certainty that we have certain rights as citizens of this great nation. These rights are expressed in a document called The Bill of Rights, the first 10 Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Those amendments are designed to protect us from a government that would infringe on the rights of the individuals. They are there to protect us when we express our individualism of thought, speech, and yes, our freedom to worship as we believe, without being told what religion to follow, or how to worship as we see fit. those amendments contain provisions that would protect us from abuse and or what they referred to as "subversive of good order" or "broke out into overt acts against peace and good order,"  (Separation of Church and State, What the Founders Meant.)  by David Barton.


All of my life I have pushed myself beyond normal limits, and now on the verge of turning seventy I have not changed a bit. I have not written a thing in the last two weeks as total exhaustion prevented me from doing more than staying abreast with breaking events. Now, feeling somewhat better I must once again embark on my chosen path of understanding what our government and others are doing to us. Of late, my total effort has been to monitor the news and record events in News Roundup. What I have published below is simply highlights of items that I would have been writing about were I able.

Since I began writing and doing research on the internet years ago I have seen many photographs from the world of Islam that have troubled me; none nearly as much as the one to the left. Innocence among adults is so rare, so fleeting, but we expect, nurture, and protect the innocence of our young. Often the adults of our culture do without things that they need so that they may provide for their children; but we were born and raised under the precepts of the Judeo-Christian doctrine where providing for the helpless is second nature to a people who, while less than perfect, usually seek the better angels of mankind. I want you to have a really good look at that photo and so will print it full size, as I have never seen a photograph that better illustrates the stark contrast between pure innocence and abject evil.

Something very peculiar is taking place in the Middle East and that change validates my long held beliefs that the anarchy and chaos(A&C) we see there is being fomented by the Globalists of the world. It has been several years since I have written about the Soros sponsored UN agenda of Responsibility to Protect(R2P). Perhaps it is time to review this dangerous doctrine.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014


So very many Americans exist in a perpetual state of shock, confusion, denial, and disbelief, and that state of mind can be traced back to one word ... 'Transformation'. On October 30, 2008, Hussein Obama stood before the world and stated: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

Saturday, August 2, 2014


"Forgive them, for they know not what they do." Famous words dating back two thousand years, that could be well applied to so many today who regard themselves to be patriots.

My last essay Come Hell Or High Water, I Support Israel, stirred up much rancor on both sides of the Atlantic, undoubtedly costing me a few friends, and led to my choosing to leave a Facebook group. That was a good essay and I meant every word of it, and as such would write it again; caring less about who would be offended. One of my websites gets over 6000 hits a day and the newer one nearly 3000; I doubt that I shall even notice if I am boycotted by a few who hate Jews.

Thursday, July 31, 2014


Daily I watch videos and read articles from the MSM as they omit the realities that do not fit into their progressive anti-Israel agenda. My head shakes in disgust as I watch them slant the truth, alter the truth, and totally disregard the truth in their blatant anti-Semitism.

WHERE ARE WE HEADED? Submitted by Shannon Ward

As I look at everything going on around the world; the anti Israel, anti Jewish views by many, including our own administration, and the murder of 298 people aboard a plane brought down by Putin's thugs, I cannot help but wonder where are we headed?

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


I have long tried to reach the unreachable. Today's blog stats tell me that I may have just opened the door.

There were two times in my early days on the internet that I was taken in by a hoax; embarrassing to say the least, and while one time should have taught me a lesson, I just had to fall for round two. After that I set out to make quite certain that never happens again. Part of the effort was learning what the hoax sites were, but the most important part was learning how to do serious research that I might debunk a hoax on my own. To that end I owe a very small debt of gratitude to those who daily lie to the American public and probably wet their pants laughing at the gullible.

Sunday, July 27, 2014


For once I am not going to write about politics, other than as a background theme. Today I shall address an issue that I am certain troubles all serious bloggers; that being, those we cannot reach.

I recall about five years ago when I first began writing on the internet, starry eyed and delusional in my belief that I could wake the American public up to the danger posed by the Manchurian candidate they had just elected. Well, at times we are all disillusioned, they about the Pied Piper, and I about them.

Thursday, July 24, 2014


I think back over the years to Lee Greenwood's song 'God Bless The U.S.A.' and think of Ronald Reagan. While he was in office there was indeed a shining city on the hill and we could sing 'I'm proud to be an American' and mean it. Today that pride is tarnished by the shame brought to our great nation by Hussein Obama and the poor excuse for Americans who put him into the Oval Office, not once but twice. Obama is no more than a slick talking orator put into mainstream America by the powers that be, with the soul purpose of bringing ruin to this nation, but he is no more than a symptom of a society gone bad. Had not so many millions of the mindless and immoral voted for him he would by now have been long forgotten and relegated to the back alleys of Chicago, where he belongs.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014


I have always been one to give credit where due, even if it is to those who are hell bent on destroying this nation. While others, from Congressional leaders, to the media, to the average American posting his views on Facebook, are denouncing Obama for incompetence I maintain, as fact, that Obama is not only NOT incompetent, he is doing an outstanding job of carrying on the assignment given him; that being leading the American people to their ultimate ruin.

Bret Stephens

The following is an essay that I wrote in Freedom Rings 1776 shortly after the Boston Marathon bombing. I repost it here as its message is more pertinent today than ever. As you read it you will encounter a very profound thought:
"We like the idea that we would rather be righteous defenseless victims than potentially morally compromised victors."
PLEASE ponder the ramifications of that statement and see if you would defend such a stand. If so read no farther. Advocating our survival is the message delivered below. If being a victim is your choice waste no time reading my thoughts nor the thoughts of a brilliant young man.

WHERE IS OUR HUMANITY? Submitted by Shannon Ward

Occasionally I have the honor of introducing a fellow blogger and posting her thoughts on my website. This is one such occasion. The following was not intended to be an essay, as such. It was simply the heartfelt views of a young lady expressing her inner thoughts before a sometimes cruel world. I read those thoughts, asked her permission to publish them, and now put her words before you.

As we look at the events of this day we ask ourselves some important questions. Where am I in humanity? Do I see the carnage that is in the Ukraine? Do I turn away without reflection as to the lives lost? Do I recognize that those shapes of human beings, lying in the wreckage as being human beings?
