Crying Wolf

If you are as old as I am you have been seeing media bias for a long, long, time. It took me a while to catch on. I thought that Walter Cronkite was completely unbiased until I read his autobiography and discovered how liberal he was. His statements during the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, calling the war "unwinnable" began to make sense to me. Tet was the most complete, and greatest comeback victory for American military forces since the Battle of the Bulge. However Cronkite's comments, from the most trusted man in America, was devastating to the American war effort. It would signal the beginning of the end and the final American defeat in Vietnam. Johnson supposedly said  “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.” There is debate as to whether Johnson even said this or how much impact Cronkite's comments even had on the course of the war but there is no doubt Cronkite injected commentary into his news reporting, which is totally out of line in my opinion.

The Community Organizer In Chief Is Still At It - Know Your Enemy

Hillary once talked about a "vast right wing conspiracy" I considered myself a proud member of it when it came to the Clinton's. This so-called conspiracy pales in comparison to to the vast left wing conspiracy facing Trump. It is composed of people like Barack Obama, George Soros, the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, our intelligence network, the judicial system, etc. etc. Obama has formed a Saul Alinsky like community organizing group called OFA, (Organization For Action).  The tactics being used right now are Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radical's 101. Much like the radicals of 1968, who were frustrated by their failure at disrupting the Democratic National Convention. Alinsky had the following advice for them. "Do one of three things. One, go find a wailing wall and feel sorry for yourselves. Two, go psycho and start bombing — but this will only swing people to the right. Three, learn a lesson. Go home, organize, build power and at the next conven…

1963 - Chapter 11 - Prime Time

Image
I call this chapter Prime Time because I loved the 1980's. At least for the most part. The early 1980's were rough but I was in the best physical shape of my life. My economic picture was gradually improving. It was fun being in the Air Guard, because those guys made me laugh all the time. It was an honor to serve with them. I loved the music and I was crazy about my family. Finally we had a great president in the White House and I never felt prouder of my country.  During the 1970's the Air Force decided that if America ever went to war again it's security forces would need to be able to defend it's airbases as it did under Operation Safeside in Vietnam. In the Spring of 1984 my Guard unit was deployed to Little Rock A.F.B. Arkansas for two weeks of Air Base Ground Defense Training. I was in very good physical shape because I averaged running about seven miles a day. However this two weeks in Arkansas would be the most physically challenging two weeks of my lif…
