I’m well aware not all Americans will feel this way.

I do not speak for BMEWS.
I can only speak for myself.

Can people, or maybe the question is, should people voice out loud what they are thinking? Especially when very angry.

I have this bad habit. My mouth follows my thoughts and there’s usually not a thing to be done about it.

I often scan the papers first for things that stand out, or maybe just annoy me. It isn’t that I want to be annoyed or angry.  But the news is the news and I don’t make it up.

I generally see red and confess sometimes it may be unreasoning red.
When organizations of foreign birth operate in the USA, using Americans of course (Americans in name anyway) then I see more then red. 

It’s an organization with roots right here in the UK and it’s amnesty intl., and they certainly are that. International.  My hatred doesn’t know any boundaries where they and those like them are concerned.  Look, I’m an old fart these days and there isn’t anything I can personally do about them. I run outta breath just tying my shoe laces.  But I confess, I am entirely consumed by hatred most of you can not possibly imagine.  Think the worst and you still won’t have it all.

Sometimes I think, what if someone were already old enough, ex military, and what if they were very ill. What if they were already facing the great void due to say, cancer. What might they have to lose by taking out heads of organizations like the aclu and amnasty?  If their days are numbered anyway and there’s no hope of relief from pain. You’d have the perfect Killing Machine!  Why not take a page from the good book of Mossad, and take out America’s enemies?

Target specific leadership types and somehow, someway, find the people who donate large sums to them, and taking them out too.  Even if would be assassins were caught, what would they have to lose?  It seems to me it would be win-win. If you’re dying anyway, what more could a court do?  Your remaining few months in jail and probably on meds the whole time? Woo-hoo.  The only regret I’d feel were it me, would be failure if caught before the good and necessary deeds were done.

Until America stops playing patty cake and holding hands with our enemies, we’re as doomed as I think the Brits are with their, we must under ALL circumstances be fair and liberal in outlook. That’s bullshit and it’s their undoing as it will be ours.

I have read how nice and comfy is the treatment of that faggot mo!#3rf$&*3r who passed secret docs to Wikileaks. Bad enough that the USA thinks it must make nice to foreigners and assure them that our prisoner is being well cared for. Like it’s their fuckin business to begin with. Well … these em-effers think it’s their business, and they would most assuredly be on my hit parade list if I had the training, the weapons and the know how.  Oh btw, the hate I mentioned is not reserved for amnesty intl. alone.  It extends to those with the same agenda.

Here. Take a look at what got me going.  Perhaps those of you with cooler heads
and less excitable of manner, those who are not, like myself, closer to Sonny Corleone then Mother Teresa, maybe you have a more clear headed solution then I am capable of.

Bradley Manning is UK citizen and needs protection, government told

Amnesty International asks government to intervene on behalf of soldier suspected of having passed US secrets to WikiLeaks

The British government is under pressure to take up the case of Bradley Manning, the soldier being held in a maximum security military prison in Virginia on suspicion of having passed a massive trove of US state secrets to WikiLeaks, on the grounds that he is a UK citizen.

Amnesty International called on the government to intervene on Manning’s behalf and demand that the conditions of his detention, which the organisation calls “harsh and punitive”, are in line with international standards.

Amnesty’s UK director, Kate Allen, said: “His Welsh parentage means the UK government should demand his ‘maximum custody’ status does not impair his ability to defend himself, and we would also like to see Foreign Office officials visiting him just as they would any other British person detained overseas and potentially facing trial on very serious charges.”

Clive Stafford Smith, director of Reprieve, which provides legal assistance to those facing capital punishment and secret imprisonment, likened the conditions under which Manning is held to those in Guantánamo Bay.

“The government took a principled stance on Guantánamo cases even for British residents, let alone citizens, so you would expect it to take the same stance with Manning.”
Manning is a UK citizen by descent from his Welsh mother, Susan. Government databases on births, deaths and marriages show she was born Susan Fox in Haverfordwest in 1953.

She married a then US serviceman, Brian Manning, stationed at a US base near the city, and they had a daughter, Casey, in the same year. Bradley was born in Oklahoma in 1987.

Born in the US, he is a US citizen. But under the British Nationality Act of 1981, anyone born outside the UK after 1 January 1983 who has a mother who is a UK citizen by birth is British by descent.

“Nationality is like an elastic band: it stretches to one generation born outside the UK to a British parent. And that makes Bradley Manning British,” said Alison Harvey, head of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association in London.

So far, however, Manning’s British status has not impinged itself upon the UK authorities. The British embassy in Washington said it had not received any requests to visit Manning in jail. “It hasn’t crossed our path yet,” an official said.

The issue of the soldier’s nationality has been bubbling furiously on Twitter in recent days and has been taken up by the UK branch of the Bradley Manning supporters network.

He has been held in the brig of Quantico marine base in Virginia since last July, having been arrested in Iraq, where he was stationed as a US army intelligence analyst two months previously.
He is alleged to have been the source of several WikiLeaks exposés of US state secrets, including the massive trove of cables released in November.


So now the shits are trying to claim the USA has no jurisdiction?  Well screw them. But you must surely understand after reading this why I want them ALL,
Graveyard Dead! Every last one.

a note about my source. this article was originally in the Telegraph, but hunt as I tried, I could find no link and so had to use the Guardian.

What am I thankful for?…

I’m thankful we still have citizens like this:

(Watch the crowd in the background. Their response brought tears to my eyes.)

The Constitution of the United States is under assault from without (NORK, China, and Islam) and from within (Obama regime and the Democrats).

I’m thankful for former Marines like Lewis. I’m thankful for the crowd that stood and placed hands over hearts. The Obamunistas shall not succeed. You will NOT force unConstitutional laws down our throats (and then send us to your death panels to deny us treatment for throat cancer)

We will NOT go quietly the way the formerly Great Britain has.

Right On

America, Eff Yeah!

big_us_flag big_us_flag  image big_us_flag  big_us_flag

A 13-year-old Stanislaus County boy at the center of a flag controversy got a big show of support Monday as many people rallied to his side.

Cody Alicea was earlier told by Denair Middle School officials that he could not ride to school with a U.S. flag on his bike. The story has gained national attention, from Rush Limbaugh to the Drudge Report.

The school changed its mind, and now Alicea can display the stars and stripes.

When he rode from his home to school on Monday, he was followed by a parade of people on motorcycles. A military jet flyover was also expected.

“I’d just like to say thanks for the support,” Alicea said before his ride.

Officials at the school told Alicea not to display the flag, citing safety concerns. Some students had complained about the display.

Denair Unified School District Superintendent Edward Parraz said the campus recently experienced some racial tension. He said some students got out of hand on Cinco de Mayo. He said some students displayed the Mexican flag, while others displayed American flags.

Parraz said he got calls from halfway around the world about the flag controversy. Some soldiers in Afghanistan called to complain.

Alicea said he was surprised at the attention.

“This is big,” Alicea said. “I didn’t think it’d get this big.”

“Many” writes the author in this MSNBC piece. Try hundreds. A whole parade. And phone calls? Try thousands. Parraz ought to be mortified. Mortified right out of a job. Commie bastard.

More here

Is this a “disproportionate response”? Hell no. If every minor issue got this kind of public reaction, we wouldn’t have any major issues. Government - and that includes schools - needs to be slapped down firmly at each and every opportunity.

PS - hey teach, here’s a clue for free: there ain’t NO frickin’ Cinco de Mayo celebration north of the Rio Grande. Not in American schools. Capice? You want to have a Whoopee Do For Mexico Day, go down there and hold one. This is NOT Mexico.

Why We Win, Part 1

I don’t know why I’ve never done one of these WWW posts before. Probably because I get hung up on what to title them ...

alternate title: The Greatest Gun Pron Video Never Filmed

alternate title: Two pair that are hard to beat

alternate title: USO stunt reminds sailors that shore leave won’t be for another 120 days

alternate title: Jessica and her pair of 50s? Nah, I thought she’d lost weight!


J_Simp hunts the illusive Chicken of the Sea

How’s this for a morale raiser? Jessica Simpson entertained the sailors aboard the USS Harry Truman out in the Arabian Sea the other day, signing autographs, posing for snapshots, performing in the ships hanger bay, and eating with the crew. The crew had earlier run a singing contest, with the winners getting a chance to share a duet with her.

Morale was further raised when Ms. Simpson was given a chance to blast away on a pair of deck mounted .50 BMGs. Awesome. Best slow motion gun porn video never filmed. Even though the temperature was in the upper 90s, Jessica wore a helmet, ear muffs, an extra shirt, a heavy flack jacket, and big leather boots for protection. But I’m certain that under all that and her trademark Daisy Dukes was a very small bikini.

Aviation Boatswain’s Mate 3rd Class John Britt, USS Harry S. Truman Air department, V-2 division, emerged as the contest winner. Britt’s wife and child will be accompanying him to New York to watch his performance and share the experience.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I’m honored to be part of it,” said Britt. “I’m excited to be able to represent Truman, as well as the entire Navy. My family and shipmates are proud of me, and I couldn’t ask for anything better.”

Britt’s duet with Jessica will also be featured in her upcoming Christmas album.

“She knows the sacrifices the military men and women are making on behalf of their country, and she wants to do what she can in return,” said Joe Simpson, Jessica’s father and manager. “She’s proud to be able to sing with someone fighting for our freedom.”

Capt. Craig Clapperton, USS Harry S. Truman executive officer, said he was honored to have Jessica on board as a guest, and felt she boosted the crew’s morale with her heartfelt appreciation of their professionalism and service.

“I got to get my picture taken with her,” said Operations Specialist Seaman Jeroy Williams. “It was really amazing to meet a celebrity. She’s a lot prettier in real life, but she’s shorter than I thought she’d be. She was really nice to everybody, and I’m really glad I was able to meet her.”

During a performance in the ship’s hangar bay, Jessica thanked the hundreds of Sailors and Marines for their service and shared love of country and sang “God Bless America.”

“I’ve never meet anybody famous before,” said Operation Specialist Seaman Alison Wagner. “It’s really great that she took the time to come out here to visit us while we were deployed. It definitely lifted my spirits and made me feel a lot better being on deployment.”

During a tour of the ship, Jessica also participated in a 50 cal. gun shoot, served as a helmsman on the bridge, and spoke to the crew on the 1-MC. Although she enjoyed everything during her visit, her favorite part, she said, was meeting the crew members.

“I’ve been on many USO trips,” she said, “and I always enjoy sitting and talking with service members. To be on board Truman has been a blessing. I’ve met so many amazing people, and everybody has been so welcoming and made me feel like I’m at home. I can’t express enough how much I appreciate the sacrifices you make for our country.”

The full article is here, given an awful title in true Navy style: Simpson Embarks Truman. Oy vey.
But I would like to thank the US Navy and photographer Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Apprentice Tyler Caswell for the photograph of her and Chief Gunner’s Mate Keith McGinley playing with guns, and their appreciation of true hi-res photography.

Thanks Guy

A big thanks to Old Cat Man for finding this post. I don’t know how he did it, though using the search widget on the right sidebar and searching on “contest” will bring up the links. I’d forgotten all about it.

big_us_flag  Keyboard Catharsis big_us_flag

So here is a memory within a memory; here is the Skipper, Allan Kelly, and the 9/11 essay contest he and Vilmar ran back in 2004.

We try to keep everything here, but unfortunately some of the graphics have been lost.


The contest

Allan’s original essay

All the essays submitted with the winning essays .

I swear my head will explode If I hear one single word on TV Saturday about that stinking victory mosque the rat bastards want to build in New York. No mosque, no mas. No dhimmi, no jizya, no bowing down. No sharia anywhere. Enemies forever, no quarter asked or given. Invade their countries, kill their leaders, and force the population to convert to Christianity at the point of a sword. Then erase every trace of islam that ever was. Erase the written language of arabic. Destroy every single aspect of any culture that draws it’s justification from that evil book, and use that book for it’s proper purposes: lighting fires and wiping asses. All toilets will face Mecca, and no “squatters” will be installed anywhere in any white nation. This is not severe. This is not draconian. This is not keeping hate alive, which our enemies have done for over 800 - 1000 years now.  This is only giving back what they have done for centuries to us when they can, and what they’ve announced for decades now that they intend to do again. The battlefields change, the methods change, the venues differ. But the fight continues, because it’s all they have.

Just say NO!!

Nothing Islamic or Muslim should even be in NYC! Especially an Obamosque. Why?

Was there anything ‘racist’ on 9/11?

NO! An alleged ‘religion’ declared war on the West. Islam is not a religion; it is a political party masquerading as a religion.

However, if they want to build an Obamosque in NYC, then I demand a Catholic cathedral and a Hebrew-Jewish Temple (and, btw, a Mormon Temple) in both Mecca and Medina. I also demand unrestricted access to both ‘cities’ by non-Muslims.

Just in the alleged interest of ‘outreach’ and ‘inclusion’.


Right!… machinegun

Seriously, I just wanted to remind you, and especially those who may have been too young to remember, why we are at war against Islam (again…sigh…)

BTW, the video is best viewed full-screen. You get the full effect of the planes hitting, and the people jumping…

9-11 is coming up and we are actually arguing over a mosque being built?

Get real! Don’t argue… t’would make a nice target!

Just a Common Soldier

My old high school buddy flapjawman sends me stuff constantly. I’m still about 100 emails behind. He sent this poem a couple of days ago, complete with apology:

(sorry, no reference, someone emailed it to me)

I’ve chewed him out several times for sending me stuff w/o references or links.

Here’s the poem as sent:

He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And ‘tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we’ll hear his tales no longer,
For ol’ Bob has passed away,
And the world’s a little poorer
For a Soldier died today.

He won’t be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won’t note his passing,
‘Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician’s stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier--
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his like again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Soldier’s part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he’s here to hear the praise,
Then at least let’s give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:

Now, I did find a source for this. I ‘binged’ the first verse. (I use Bing instead of Google these days.) Bing returned the following hit:

Just a Common Soldier

© 1985 A. Lawrence Vaincourt

A. Lawrence Vaincourt (WW II Air Force veteran) wrote this poem in 1985 for his newspaper column and it was reprinted in his 1991 book RHYMES AND REFLECTIONS (available from its publisher at  For information regarding reprints or to contact Larry, please e-mail

Veteran’s Day will be coming soon. This would be perfect for recitation at any Veteran’s Day event.

I’m also hoping that Mr. Vaincourt won’t be too upset. After all, I did some research and found the proper person to credit. This is apparently making the email rounds sans credit.

I can’t demand that any of my readers go and spend an hour reading this essay in American Spectator, but I certainly can recommend it.  It’s a long read, and a somewhat academic one, and it puts into words written at a higher level the chalkboarding and emoting you catch on Glen Beck every day. But it really is worth it: if We The People are ever going to get our acts together and take back our nation, then this shared awareness is where we will have to start.

Ever since Oliver Wendell Holmes argued in 1920 (Missouri v. Holland) that presidents, Congresses, and judges could not be bound by the U.S. Constitution regarding matters that the people who wrote and ratified it could not have foreseen, it has become conventional wisdom among our ruling class that they may transcend the Constitution while pretending allegiance to it. They began by stretching such constitutional terms as “interstate commerce” and “due process,” then transmuting others, e.g., “search and seizure,” into “privacy.” Thus in 1973 the Supreme Court endowed its invention of “privacy” with a “penumbra” that it deemed “broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.” The court gave no other constitutional reasoning, period.

When the government declares, and its associated press echoes that “scientists say” this or that, ordinary people—or for that matter scientists who “don’t say,” or are not part of the ruling class—lose any right to see the information that went into what “scientists say.” Thus when Virginia’s attorney general subpoenaed the data by which Professor Michael Mann had concluded, while paid by the state of Virginia, that the earth’s temperatures are rising “like a hockey stick” from millennial stability—a conclusion on which billions of dollars’ worth of decisions were made—to investigate the possibility of fraud, the University of Virginia’s faculty senate condemned any inquiry into “scientific endeavor that has satisfied peer review standards” claiming that demands for data “send a chilling message to scientists...and indeed scholars in any discipline.” The Washington Post editorialized that the attorney general’s demands for data amounted to “an assault on reason.”

By identifying science and reason with themselves, our rulers delegitimize opposition. Though they cannot prevent Americans from worshiping God, they can make it as socially disabling as smoking—to be done furtively and with a bad social conscience. Though they cannot make Americans wish they were Europeans, they continue to press upon this nation of refugees from the rest of the world the notion that Americans ought to live by “world standards.”
The country class actually believes that America’s ways are superior to the rest of the world’s, and regards most of mankind as less free, less prosperous, and less virtuous. Thus while it delights in croissants and thinks Toyota’s factory methods are worth imitating, it dislikes the idea of adhering to “world standards.” This class also takes part in the U.S. armed forces body and soul: nearly all the enlisted, non-commissioned officers and officers under flag rank belong to this class in every measurable way. Few vote for the Democratic Party.

But the Republican Party does not live to represent the country class. For it to do so, it would have to become principles-based, as it has not been since the mid-1860s. The few who tried to make it so the party treated as rebels: Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan. The party helped defeat Goldwater. When it failed to stop Reagan, it saddled his and subsequent Republican administrations with establishmentarians who, under the Bush family, repudiated Reagan’s principles as much as they could. Barack Obama exaggerated in charging that Republicans had driven the country “into the ditch” all alone. But they had a hand in it.

Because aggressive, intolerant secularism is the moral and intellectual basis of the ruling class’s claim to rule, resistance to that rule, whether to the immorality of economic subsidies and privileges, or to the violation of the principle of equal treatment under equal law, or to its seizure of children’s education, must deal with secularism’s intellectual and moral core. This lies beyond the boundaries of politics as the term is commonly understood.

Yes, that’s a lot of quotations, far more than I usually make. I did that so that you would see the very broad range of topics covered by this essay. It shows how just about everything has gone wrong, and why ... and the answer is Progressivism. We have 3 generations worth of corruption to undo, and that’s going to require far more than just a couple wins at the polls in 2010 and 2012.

seditious behavior

An Unwarrantable Jurisdiction

Get a load of Chris Muir’s Day By Day strip for today.


It’s not a bad idea, this hobby that Sam has of writing out longhand the fundamental documents we have based our nation on. Not only does that make you read them, and read them fully, but by writing them down yourself a few times their meaning becomes both clear and ingrained. And recall that this particular document was both rationalization and justification for an armed revolution.

I do not suggest trying to make your own longhand copy of the health care bill. That would probably take you the better part of a year.

Memorial Day…some history

I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve learned much about Memorial Day this year. In my defense I’ll claim we have too many holidays for too few good reasons. Memorial Day is not one of those holidays. There is a good reason for it.

Memorial Day started out as Decoration Day.

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.

A caller to the Rush Limbaugh show last week got me interested in this. The caller was an old veteran who was promoting Memorial Day poppies. He said that 50 years ago everybody would have a poppy and now…? Rush seemed to know what the caller was talking about but didn’t explain it. Poppies? I had to look up Memorial Day and poppies.

In 1915, inspired by the poem “In Flanders Fields,” Moina Michael replied with her own poem:

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

She then conceived of an idea to wear red poppies on Memorial day in honor of those who died serving the nation during war. She was the first to wear one, and sold poppies to her friends and co-workers with the money going to benefit servicemen in need. Later a Madam Guerin from France was visiting the United States and learned of this new custom started by Ms.Michael and when she returned to France, made artificial red poppies to raise money for war orphaned children and widowed women. This tradition spread to other countries. In 1921, the Franco-American Children’s League sold poppies nationally to benefit war orphans of France and Belgium. The League disbanded a year later and Madam Guerin approached the VFW for help. Shortly before Memorial Day in 1922 the VFW became the first veterans’ organization to nationally sell poppies. Two years later their “Buddy” Poppy program was selling artificial poppies made by disabled veterans. In 1948 the US Post Office honored Ms Michael for her role in founding the National Poppy movement by issuing a red 3 cent postage stamp with her likeness on it.

Artificial poppies to wear on Memorial Day are still being made by disabled veterans. That’s what the caller was promoting. I unfortunately don’t remember if it was the American Legion or the VFW. Regardless, get a red poppy to wear today.

Sorry, should read my own post, eh? It was the VFW. I was trying to remember what the caller said.


Saturday at work our supervisor got on the intercom to ‘thank all veterans this Memorial Day weekend…’

Faux pas? Ignorance? Who knows? I quietly went to him and reminded him that Memorial Day honors those who died in service to their country. It does NOT honor veterans. Veteran’s Day is observed for those like myself. And I don’t even count myself as a veteran: I never saw combat. To me a veteran has been in combat. I did serve six years in the Navy and was honorably discharged. I served, but I’m not a veteran.

My supervisor was man enough to get back on the intercom and correct himself. He added that we should all pray for those who’ve lost husbands, fathers, sons, daughters, during the current war.


And finally, I just have to include a link to Mark Steyn’s website today. The article is not written by Mr. Steyn but is an excerpt from one of his books. It’s an article about the creation of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. (Note: not the Battle Hymn of the Democracy)

He’s only running for Congress… sad

Col. Allen West is running for Congress down in Florida. Here’s an example of his views:

Needless to say, this view interested me. I’ve been saying this since 9/11. This man knows his history. So I checked out his website. I specifically read his ‘Issues’ page.

I have only one question: Why is this man only running for Congress? President West sounds good to me.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
