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.

I have never liked politics, most politicians, what goes on in the political arena, and especially dislike what goes on behind closed doors. And yet oddly enough, at the age of seventy, politics has become the very focal point of my life. I could say that this change is due to fear, but quite honestly at my age there is very little that can inspire fear in me. No, the simple fact of the matter is that I have long been a student of history and know far more than most of man's inhumanity to man. I have spent countless hours trying to understand the evil within some who crave unlimited powers, and the craven apathetic nature of the masses who allow this to happen. In younger days this study was an academic pursuit. Today it is a reality that haunts my every moment.

I have long stated that Islamic immigration has but one purpose...To foment discord thus leading the host nation to implement Draconian laws that would then be used to control the native born people, while giving a politically correct pass to Muslims. Now, in the U.S., we find the DHS warning not of militant blacks and illegal aliens, nor of the danger from Islam. They are warning that our greatest concern should be directed at right wing groups.

The bulk of this essay is going to be about terrorism and how our Progressive leaders, across all of the western nations, helped to set the stage for the emergence of those terrorists and continue to aid them as their horrifying powers grow. Before going there, however, I would like to use one bit of news, seemingly unrelated, but actually quite relative, for it reveals the duplicity of those we once trusted with our highest aspirations. Allow me to present none other than Marco Rubio, and man once hailed by the conservative right and considered as a possible candidate for President. Today Americans, not nearly as concerned about terrorism as they should be, regard illegal immigration, ObamaCare, and the economy, to be our greatest concerns. Well, here is an 'Up Yours' salute from a man once trusted, and he is but one more indicator of the treason that has taken root in our nation's capitol.

In recent writings and comments to associates I have been taking up the topic of 'experts' as they speak of specifics while failing to address an overview of the big picture. Surely you have heard the tale of the blind men and the elephant. If not, this is a link to the parable, and this is an excerpt from it: 'the parable implies that one's subjective experience can be true, but that such experience is inherently limited by its failure to account for other truths or a totality of truth. At various times the parable has provided insight into the relativism, opaqueness or inexpressible nature of truth, the behavior of experts in fields where there is a deficit or inaccessibility of information, the need for communication, and respect for different perspectives.'

The recent debacle in Yemen was far too well enacted to be anything short of a well planned and choreographed submission of the U.S. military before the forces of Islam. The bloodletting and the disgrace of Benghazi taught the Obama regime a lesson they are unwilling to repeat, and yet the narrative must continue; America must bow as the black flag of terrorism is raised above our territory. The surrender of our embassy in Yemen was designed to be a deliberate capitulation to terrorism, and the long term effects of that capitulation are equally well planned, and few understand the true ramifications of some of our finest warriors retreating in disgrace.

I have a standing policy of using only brief excerpts from an essay written by another and referring my readers to the original article. Today, for the first time, I shall back away from my own rule, due to the importance of what is revealed, while still giving credit where due and providing a link to the site and the brave men and women involved in the effort. It is an open letter to Hussein Obama and it warns of the dangers of his goal to close Gitmo and send the terrorists housed there to their home countries or to the United States.

Fondly dedicated to G.B. and J.S.

There was a time when it could be stated, more or less rightly, that 'It is a man's world.' Thank goodness those days and such an attitude has faded into history. The only reason that I have even brought the topic up is I am about to ask you to read a brief poem from a great poet by name of Rudyard Kipling. The name of the poem is 'If' and everyone is familiar with at least the first one and a half lines. 'If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs'... As you read the poem do a mental adjustment, allowing for the 'man's world' concept of that long gone day. Whether you are a man or woman, twenty two years old or sixty, it matters not as the message is the same. It is one of strength, of self control, self reliance, and a spirit that refuses to be broken, or even bend. Think of that poem as a message from your father or mother, or for that matter, me. We have some very trying times ahead and it would serve us all well to heed the message that Kipling left his son.


Liberals...Many debate with them, trying to awaken them to the reality and the dangers that lie before us. I never bother, feeling the effort to be a total waste of my time. I have long since written them off as casualties in a mindless world of their own making. Their ultimate fate is a matter of extreme indifference to me. I publish on two separate websites; 'Freedom Rings 1776', began while I was still optimistic about this nation's future, and 'Fix Bayonets' that began after concluding that any hope we have will begin after the inevitable crash that our enemies have planned for America. If you are reading this on 'Fix Bayonets' look to the top of the page. There you will find my statement of purpose for this site. It reads...

In general an epiphany is regarded to be a good thing. For such an event to occur it is necessary to have a past knowledge regarding a certain topic; coupled with a breakthrough of information that not only verifies that past information, but also leads on to a vast new understanding that has been lacking, awaiting only the key of additional knowledge. Today I had such an epiphany and let me assure you that such an event is not always something to celebrate. This one is leading me to believe that all of my research and writings over the years may very well have been a total waste of time and effort. The information that I have gathered is accurate, as well as the projections made that were based upon that data. However, I have not managed to alter the course of history and the death throes of a dying nation. I have called upon our people to ignore the multitude of distractions and maintain focus, and failed miserably in that endeavor. And, I have long made predictions of coming events, that have proven correct. Those predictions have accomplished no more than instilling fear in some, but admittedly I have been unable to sidestep the outcome of those events. We continue down the same path to ruin in spite of my efforts, and I grow weary.

1980...It seems so long ago, and almost in a galaxy far far away. How far we have come since then, and the journey has been all downhill. In 1980 Ronald Reagan was campaigning for the Presidency, Americans had grown weary of our leftward trek toward the socialist Utopia envisioned by Jimmy Carter, and Neil Diamond's movie the 'Jazz Singer' was taking America by storm. We were a different people then, weary of failed promises from failed leaders. Our responsible citizens had long since rejected the propositions put forth by the flower children, and the peace sign adorned few VW buses. In short, America was on the way to a renewal in both our patriotism and our pride in the American way, and it showed. Four years into the Reagan Presidency Lee Greenwood wrote and recorded 'God Bless The USA' and it was an indicator of a great American rebirth. There is no doubt about it. Those two songs were written by patriots, for patriots, and those words mean as much today as they did then, but only to those who truly love this nation. I have much to say below about what has taken place since then but if you would care to pause briefly and hear both of those songs once again, they are here; 
'Coming To America', and 'God Bless The USA'.
