While The Band Plays On

Does anyone with an IQ greater than a paramecium really think The Mad Mullahs in Tehran are ever, ever, EVAH going to let anyone in on their nuclear program’s ambitions ??? (H/T Times of Israel) Let’s just start with this reasonably clear statement: Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday ruled out allowing nuclear

A Study In Contrasts

Paging through my daily reading, I came across an excellent piece over at Townhall by Michelle Malkin. I chased down the hyperlinks that sharply contrasted two commencement speeches, one by the First Wookie and another by Denzel Washington. Denzel, a Pentecostal Christian, repeatedly emphasized that we all owe our existence to G-d. Our talents and

Armed Forces Day 2015

We here in the Empire would be sadly remiss should we fail to recognize that today is Armed Forces Day. In spite of the feckless *spit* administration that’s diminished our standing in the world, America remains free because of her Citizen Soldiers. Old George summed it up much, much better than I ever could. “When

Alive and Semi-Well, But Behind Enemy Lines…. Again

Well my friends, where to start on this story. Back in late December my health took a turn for the worse with a new job that I was putting in 80 hours a week for and on salary which means no extra dinero a’tall. My BP went through the roof and the Doc couldn’t get

Welcome to Hell

It seems to me that NBC has it’s collectivist panties in a knot about the treatment of various scumbags amongst us. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the Boston Marathon bomber,  should he avoid the death penalty, is destined to wind up at a Super-Max facility in Colorado called the Administrative Maximum Facility — aka ADX, or “supermax”. First

Just a brief word

Wanted to let you all know I am well, and just taking things one day at a time. The service was packed, testament to the wonderful and loving lady I had the joy of calling my wife for 23 years. I am told that you never stop grieving, but that each day becomes a little

Hildabeast’s First Campaign Commercial

Think she’ll run it?


is what a Commander In Chief SHOULD sound like. Before mentioning the National Rifle Association or even firearms at the gun rights group’s annual meeting in Nashville on Friday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, asked all the men and women in the audience who serve or have served in the armed forces to stand

He Is Risen!

I wish you all a  very Blessed Easter. May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection fill your life and renew you, and may the courage He showed in taking  up His cross give you the courage to live daily as Christians. And may the courage shown by Christians around the world who face death for living

Remembering EFA

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been two years to the day since we lost our brother-in-arms, LC EFA. We’ll be sending up a toast to him, as he’s swapping tales and getting our ancestors drunk on his homemade rum. Here he is a few years ago, happily cradling his twins. He was such a

There’s Still Hope

Yes, we have been notably absent, and for that I apologize. I will explain why later on, but for now I beg your forgiveness and ask for your patience. Yes, I’m still alive, as is Misha (although in his case barely so. Nothing serious, some penicillin and a few shots of vodka will clear him right up,

On February 19, 1945, Marines of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Marine Divisions landed on a volcanic island in the Bonin Island chain of Japan called Iwo Jima. The strategic importance of the island was self evident and the Marines had no doubt of the ferocity of the battle that they were about to commence.

A Short History Lesson For The One

So Ogabe was speaking to a bunch of Christians at the National Prayer Breakfast. What a better time to bash Christianity and engage in a little false moral relativism by dredging up the old Crusades. Let’s get one or two things out of the way. The Crusades were a defensive war started after almost 600

Another Glorious Chapter In The Age of Ogabe

For 239 years my beloved Corps has fought more battles, incursions, expeditions and wars than I care to count. In all that time they have retreated from the field of battle only once, at the Battle of Bladensburg during the War of 1812 after the rout of the Army and militia forces. No Marine under
