To Live As A Warrior

Do yourself a favor today - read these words and then consider the source.

To Live As A Warrior

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.

Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and nothing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

Live right so when it comes your time to die, you will not be like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, who weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

CIA Prepares for Impending War on Weather - China No Longer Pri-1 Concern

You must read this stunning article from The Washington Times

According to the article (page 2)-

"One new area that has been given a higher intelligence priority (over China) under the Obama administration is intelligence collection on climate change... The CIA recently announced that it had set up a center to study the impact of climate change."

If the facts as reported are true, there are only a few plausible reasons for this move:
  • Obama policymakers actually believe that climate change is a national security risk.
  • Obama policymakers are misappropriating CIA resources for political gain (cap and tax agenda).
  • Obama policymakers have simply caved in to direct pressure from the Chinese government.
  • Obama policymakers actually believe that appeasement is an effective tactic to defeat Communism.
  • Obama policymakers actually believe that Communism is not a threat to the United States.
  • Obama policymakers actually believe in "one world" government and implicitly trust the ChiComs.
Any combination of these reasons are circumstantial evidence that Obama policymakers have been directly or indirectly influenced by the TzuComs.  Keep in mind that this article comes only days after Google caught China trying to steal information on weapons systems from defense firms.

The Washington Times report adds that, only five months ago-

"a National Intelligence Strategy... report identified China as one of four main threats to U.S. interests, along with Russia, Iran and North Korea."

For the sake of America, I pray that this Washington Times article is false and only serving as political propaganda directed towards China- i.e., the U.S. feigning a shift in intellence focus.

I say this prayer because The Washington Times report also includes this quote from Admiral Robert Willard, the new commander of U.S. Pacific Command-

"China has exceeded most of our intelligence estimates of their military capability and capacity every year. They've grown at an unprecedented rate in those capabilities."

...and this quote from Rep. Peter Hoekstra of Michigan, the ranking Republican on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence -
"The current situation with China is that they are cheating on trade agreements, aggressively pursuing military capabilities and aggressively conducting cyber-attacks."

...and this statement from Michelle Van Cleave, former national counterintelligence executive-

"Chinese intelligence is going after us with a vengeance," she said, noting that the problem includes industrial espionage, technology diversion and stealing defense and other national security secrets, in addition to a global campaign of cyber-espionage.
If you are so inclined - say these prayers with me-

I pray that the Obama administration is working for the interests of America (not China).
I pray that the Obama administration believes in the U.S. Constitution and Freedom.
I pray that the Obama administration rejects Communism.
I pray that the Obama administration has not been infiltrated by the TzuComs.

Why do I say such prayers?  Simply because the reported actions of the Obama administration indicate the contrary.

Predatory Emulation

The following comment was posted on American Thinker by member: Ranger Joe (Jan 17, 03:02 PM)
This comment is in response to the article- Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991?  The topic of the article is Anatoliy Golitsyn's - New Lies For Old. A 1984 book in which ex-KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn predicted the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc and claimed that it would be a strategic deception.
The Commie critter is hard to kill. Tough as a tick. The harmless worm eating Gopher Snake flattens out and hisses menacingly like a deadly Cobra when you harass one....then convincingly plays dead when that ruse doesn't work. If you pick it comes back to life and defecates all over your arm with a gruesome vengeance....then slithers back into it's safe burrow when you drop it....because your too paralyzed by disgust to chase it. The stink of their foul leavings is soap resistant and lingers for days. Not bad for a dumb ol' primitive snake. I'd mess my drawers too if a giant monster manhandled me. Instinct? You betcha! They are a threatened species because they're too often smashed dead with shovels by ignorant snake hating dopes....who don't realize there are no Asian Cobras native to NJ....but I digress (sorry for the ranger talk).

Communism is a phantom that morphs into something else when apparently mortally wounded. Run run run away and live to fight another day. Like any organic being it wants to live and will resort to cunning trickery to remain breathing. This is Social Darwinism at it's finest. Lay low my pretties until danger passes. A hungry hawk will sit patiently up in a tree knowing all full well the dumb curious rabbit will eventually re-emerge from it's hole because it feels safe. Another example of how dumb animals ain't. Evil genius Marx got that one right. Ask Nam combat vets how the merciless VC Red guerrillas fought them. Terror was their well as ours. Napalm worked wonders.

The USSR saw their economic collapse coming and re-wove the Red flag into red, white, and blue and toned down the scary 'We will bury you' rhetoric. They pulled a Carville/Begalla move and re-branded. Like rubes we bought the deception lock, stock, and barrel. Their over-arching master plan calls for such scams. The Green Movement is the perfect dodge for them to continue their methodical collapse of capitalism. They still command the high ground of cool fashion and hipness. The mush minds of rebellious affluent teenagers are the best target for their Big Lie injections. Belonging to a secret radical exclusive underground sub-culture still enthralls snotty rich kids and lures them in. Be outrageous....reject the old obsolete ways. They've done their research well. They own the social sciences because they invented them for just such a purpose. Lenin's anti-Hippocratic oath said...." all the harm you can....the worse the better."

Russia is a decadent Third World dictatorship with good image makers and spin doctors on staff. Putin's dirty dream of empire is the reconquista of the Warsaw Pact with muscle and missiles. Georgia was the dress rehearsal. He still hasn't dropped the other shoe. His cabal of billionaire gangsters are fat with petro-dollars and are building secret weapons in the basement. He wants to put George Bailey America in jail and turn the planet into grimy Putinville. They are the maleovent force behind the curtain and Manchurian Candidate Obama is their willing facilitator.
Ranger Joe has done well to describe predatory emulation as it exists in the human arena.

More Dangerous Than The Mob

The following comment was posted on American Thinker by: Paul Vincent Zecchino Jan 16, 05:38 AM
This comment is in response to the article- Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991?  The book described as 'bizarre' is Anatoliy Golitsyn's - New Lies For Old. A 1984 book in which ex-KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn predicted the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc and claimed that it would be a strategic deception.
The book may seem 'bizarre' because the serial deceptions pimped off by communists are intentionally bizarre, baffling, misleading - and lethal. Any attempt to describe communists and what they do is invariably confusing, as that's what they do.

Mr. McNew's article nicely dovetails what many of us were taught forty and more years ago, that the communist rats would 'put us to sleep' with peace movements, declining morals, and drugs, drugs, drugs, among other niceties.

A family friend was an FBI agent during the early days of the Cold War. They eventually became one of Mr. Hoover's top assistants. I'll always remember decades ago hearing of our friend's early days as an agent when he worked the Manhattan waterfront. He'd be gone for days, his family never knew if he'd come home alive or in pieces.

The mob was much in the news then, so I assumed he was investigating them.

Nope. He was investigating the red garbage that infested New York City, the red sub-human garbage that would kill him quicker than they'd swat one of the many outhouse flies that flitted about their rat-hole basement communist cells where they printed up their moronic little 'newspapers' for the 'workers', smoked cigars, and wafted their B.O. at one another. The communist men were a sight to see as well.
It was quite an eye opener to learn one has a better chance of surviving investigations into the mob than with the communist vermin, as Mickey Spillane beautifully illustrated in his Cold War thriller, "One Lonely Night" - mandatory reading for anyone who truly wishes to plumb the depths of the evil rotten marxist mentality.

Twenty years ago, the very fine talk radio host Barry Farber hosted many guests who warned of 'predatory emulation', the old commie trick whereby they'd pretend to be dying victims, in effort to draw near their prey - and kill them.

Mr. Farber and his guests well understand the predatory looting nature of communism and the human garbage that pimps it.

Some of us who had the blessing of knowing the very brave men who fought against this beast in its early years look forward to our Creator's stomping it forever out of existence.
Paul Vincent Zecchino is a regular columnist for Ether Zone.

With Mao hanging on the White House Christmas tree and open Marxists serving as Czars, I have to wonder, is anyone fighting the Communists anymore?  Is it too late? Have we already handed over the keys to the store?

An Open Letter to Michael Savage Regarding Religion and Jesus Christ

January 14th , 2010
To: Michael Savage

From:  J.N. Kish

Subject:  Response to your commentary on Religion and Jesus Christ
(Savage Nation 1/13/10 audio linked HERE).


Allow me to begin by setting aside one point:  Pat Robertson's shallow comments regarding Haiti are embarrassing and harmful to Christianity. For that, Robertson will have to deal personally with God.  Robertson's comments are not the reason for which I write.

With God, very few things are “A” to “B” – direct cause and effect.  You are farsighted on so many issues but appear myopic when it comes to Christ.  Everything in life happens for a reason - the reason seldom is immediately apparent.  To follow your logic-  of course, kids are not born with Leukemia because of something they did themselves.   It's not necessarily that straightforward.

To explain, it is necessary to expose some of my testimony.  I promise to keep it brief and get right to the point.  I was raised by a Catholic Mother and a Vietnam Veteran Father.  As a child, we rarely went to Church.  Every time the subject came up, my father would say-
 “I’ve already spent my time in Hell- I don’t need to go to Church.”
As a result, I learned the hard way.  I was taught right from wrong but knew little of the Bible and nothing of Jesus Christ.  I grew up as a self-taught philosopher, evolutionist and atheist.  I knew little of my soul, but that I was a good person.  I thought of myself and people in general as not much more than highly evolved animals- basic Darwinism as taught in school.  In fact, only recently were I informed of the hard and fast Christian belief that you must receive Christ in order to be accepted into heaven.  The first time that I heard it, my reaction was the same as yours-
“That’s crazy, I can’t accept it”.
My life to date has been an evolution of the spiritual kind.  In my early 20’s I was lost, without purpose, occasionally harboring thoughts of suicide because I wasn’t living up to my potential- and I knew it.  Without God, I had a hard time dealing with things when they didn’t go my way.  While attending College, I got a break- I was selected for a part time job in my field of study.  The man who hired me was a devout Baptist. He later said that one reason he picked me out of the group was that my name appeared in the Bible- obvious discrimination. As I look back, it is interesting, how something as simple as a name can turn a life around.  That job led into a career and sparked my relationship with God.

For several years, I had been successful in my career.  I enjoyed basic happiness through this success, but I knew that I was missing something.  That’s when I experienced my second encounter with the Holy Spirit.  One day, out of frustration, I called out loud to my mother who had passed of cancer a few years prior.  I asked-
“Mom, why can’t I find a woman who is right for me?”
Literally, fifteen minutes later, I met my wife- the mother of my two girls.  There is much more to the story, but I promised that I would be brief.  The main point is that I no longer have any doubts in the existence of God.  Through experience, I have learned that an observant man with an open mind will see the signs.  Anyone who pays attention can learn to understand.

When my mother died of cancer, no one could understand why.  Why would God take such a wonderful person so early in life?  I hear it often in Church, a disbelief and awe that God would allow His Son to die upon the cross- such an agonizing death.  Well, I don’t know if you have ever seen anyone die from cancer.  But, I can tell you, witnessing what my mother went through appeared every bit as agonizing as I can imagine a crucifixion to be.

Jesus had a choice.  He didn’t have to die on that cross.  He did it for love.  God allowed it- for love.

In similar fashion, I believe that countless souls do the same for others- every single day.  Here is what I can guarantee- that if given the choice, my mom would have died for me.  As it turns out, the experiences in my life have caused me to believe that maybe she did just that.  Her death has led me to Jesus Christ.  I love her just the same, if not more, then if she were standing here- right beside me.  My love for Jesus Christ is now  the same.

Am I personally certain of this?  Yes. Could I prove it in court?  No.  Does this happen to all who die?  No.  God is mysterious - but very real.  Since I have given my soul to Jesus Christ- now, at times, I can feel his presence.  It is like a force from within which fills my lungs with breath and guides me with strength, conviction and courage.  It is a wonderful feeling - unlike any that I had ever experienced before pledging my soul to Him.

I pray that you will take this message and learn everything that you can about Jesus Christ.  It takes the wisest of men to know that no one man can know everything.  That level of knowledge is reserved for God.


J.N. Kish

P.S. -  Allow me to direct you to a poem for which the Holy Spirit recently placed on my heart.  This poem speaks of the mystery of God and the blessing of the Holy Spirit – or as some describe - Guardian Angels.  We are much more than empty vessels.  Our souls can and do exist beyond the grave.  Matter cannot be created nor destroyed.

Cyber War Rages

"It's clear that this attack was so pervasive and so essential to the core of Google's intellectual property that only in such a situation would they contemplate pulling the plug on their entire business model in China," said James Mulvenon, a China cyber expert with Defense Group Inc.

Congressional sources said the other companies include Adobe and possibly Northrop Grumman and Dow Chemical. Industry sources said the attacks were even broader, affecting 34 firms.

They appeared to be after information on weapons systems from defense firms and were seeking companies' "source code," the most valuable form of intellectual property because it underlies the firms' computer applications, he said.

Several of the Internet addresses correspond to those used in malicious attacks against the defense industry last year and that are thought to be linked in some fashion to the Chinese government.

U.S. Shutters Guantanamo - Polar Bears Die?

Actual weather forecasts for January 9, 2010:
Thompson, Illinois: Sunny. High around 10 °F . Northwest wind 5 to 10 mph. Wind chill readings to 19 below in the morning.
Guantanamo, Cuba: Scattered Clouds. High: 84 °F . Wind NNW 6 mph . Chance of precipitation 30%.

Wait! Stop the project!

We could be making a huge mistake. Al Gore has yet to compare the carbon footprint of Thompson to that of Guantanamo. If we move the terrorists to Thompson, it will take much more energy to keep the terrorists warm and cozy through the winter. Preliminary estimates indicate that operation of the Thompson heating system alone could melt enough ice to kill 40 polar bears. That's the kind of risk that this government should be unwilling to take. It's time to rethink Guantanamo from the perspective of climate change. Leave the terrorists in Gitmo!

Claims False - Advise Valid

THIS POST on Conservative Thoughts has some great points but one problem - credibility.  According to Snopes Juval Aviv "did not appear (on Fox News) just prior to the London bombings and correctly predict them."

But one must set this problem aside and look at the good points contained within. "Juval Aviv is indeed the president of New York-based Interfor Inc. (a corporate investigations firm)... and he is the author of Staying Safe: The Complete Guide to Protecting Yourself, Your Family, and Your Business".

So, what can America do to protect itself?

Paraphrasing- From an intelligence perspective, the U.S. needs hands-on human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to pay attention to, and trust ‘aware’ citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens; however, our U. S. government continues to treat us, its citizens, ‘like babies’. Our government thinks we ‘can’t handle the truth’ and are concerned that we’ll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.

Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well ‘trained’ that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, ‘Unattended Bag!’ The area would be quickly and calmly cleared by the citizens themselves.

Active and aware citizens are the key to defeating terrorism.  Don't expect the government to keep you safe.
  • Plan for your own safety first. 
  • Keep your eyes open. Observe your surroundings.
  • Actively challenge and report situations that "don't seem right".
  • If you don't see or hear anything from the police, report and report again.
It is up to citizens to get the full attention of the police and government.  Police and government will never have the resources necessary to keep everyone safe. 

Citizens are the first line of defense in the war on terror.  Take action now.

I'm Tired

It wears me out- to constantly read the headlines: "Republicans Attack Democrats", "Democrats Attack Republicans", "Democrats Attack Independents", etc. etc. etc...  It's tired.  It's boring. It's mindless.

 One of the greatest men to ever walk the planet said it best-
"And whether you're an honest man, or whether you're a thief, depends on whose solicitor has given me my brief." - Benjamin Franklin
If you are the type of person that follows this blog, then you already know the game.  Media bias, opinion poles, attack ads, rigged science- smokescreen.  Democrat, Republican, Both or Neither-somewhere along the line you have realized that party politics, as they exist today, are simply a game of three card monte

The dealer always wins and the rest of us are left with two decisions:

1. To play or not to play.
2. To be a mark or to be a shill.

 Well, I don't know about you, but I'm tired of choosing between poisons.

 So, for 2010 and beyond, my one and only resolution is this- To play, every day, above the game.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

Radio3K Blog- Media: 365-Day Error

Here's good post from the Blog-
Media: 365-Day Error

It was a difficult decision.

I hate starting off a new year with a complaint. But I hate ignorance in media even more.

Headlines in a number of internet media–including–proclaimed that revelers were celebrating the beginning of a “new decade” on January 1, 2010.

Not so fast.

The “new decade” will begin with 2011. The year 2010 is the last year of the first decade of the 21st century. This is due to the elementary fact that there was no year “zero”. The first decade of our Common Era (C.E.) comprised years 1 – 10. The second decade consisted of years 11 – 20. Do the math and you’ll see where we’re going.

Perhaps it’s just another example of declining journalism skills. First the words, then the math.

Accuracy? That was a casualty that succumbed long, long ago.

Happy New Year.
Interesting, I just had this discussion with a friend last night. I tried to explain- "A decade consists of 10 years. We are just beginning the tenth year." She responded- "But, CNN is celebrating a new decade... You are wrong."

So much can be said about this conversation. But let's stick to the facts. The situation is explained well on Wikipedia HERE-
The third millennium of the Gregorian calendar began on 1 January 2001, rather than the popularly-celebrated 1 January 2000. This is a direct consequence of the absence of a year zero in the anno Domini era. Had there been a year zero, which might be considered part of the first millennium, then 1 January 2000 would indeed mark 2000 years since the year numbering datum and be the start of the third millennium. This also applies to centuries and decades. Thus, the 20th century began on 1 January 1901; and the 21st century began on 1 January 2001.
... And the next decade begins on 1 January 2011.

For those who follow the facts: "Happy New Year".

For those who follow CNN: "Happy New Decade... Sorry, no, you can't break my ten if you only have nine dollars".
