RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.  It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours.  Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction.  Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective.  But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.  That's all I promise.

I don’t think this could have been said any better and it definitely is about time someone said it.  Hopefully, this will go out over EVERY computer in the U.S. and maybe, just maybe, these sports people will get the message of just how ridiculous they are to disrespect our flag, and how little what they do in sports compare to what our great military has done for this country..
 
NFL protesting the flag -

Ret. Marine Col. Jeffery Powers wrote to the NFL
commissioners the following:
 
Commissioners, I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and the Giants Stadium. 
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt. Garrett Mongrella was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
 
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.
 
Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country besides playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!
 
You are complicit in this! You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner.
 
What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?
 
I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National  Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone?
 
Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game!
 
You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not
 
Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles
They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many don’t have legs or arms.
 
Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished They are the heroes.
 
I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!
 
Time to change the channel
 
Powers originally sent his letter to former Florida congressman Allen West. West then posted the letter on his news website.
 
As of last week, at least 18 NFL player had protested the anthem by either kneeling during the anthem or raising their fists, according to USA Today Sports.

In nearly the entire article, Mr. Robb outlines Arpaio's actions in support of both Federal and State Law...and the Courts' suspiciously politicized orders that he not enforce those laws.
Then, in the last few sentences, Robb gives vent either to an involuntary tic or he consciously places a fig leaf over his article - probably to protect is job.
Meanwhile, back in the Republicrat Party, the likes of former Senator Danforth and Senator McCain pile on with their Leftist Democratic colleagues against their President...OUR PRESIDENT.
This state of dis-union will continue until 2018, when I predict that a number of incumbent Republicans will be defeated by primaries whose challengers will then go on to win more seats for the Republican Party.

Fox CEO Murdoch Slams Trump, Conservatives Respond

James Murdoch, the CEO of Fox News' parent company, has been slammed by conservatives for harshly criticizing President Donald Trump and suggesting he had backed Nazi sympathizers.
Earlier this week, Murdoch, who heads 21st Century Fox, wrote "What we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the president of the United States concern all of us as Americans and free people."
Murdoch pledged $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League to fight hate crimes and prejudice, he said.
"The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob," Murdoch added.
"I can't even believe I have to write this: Standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists."
Trump did condemn white supremacists and Nazi sympathizers, including the person who murdered a young protester.
But, in an angry exchange with reporters in New York on Tuesday, President Trump reiterated his initial comments that "there is blame on both sides" in the melee over the removal of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's statue from a downtown Charlottesville park.
However, Trump's defiance drew praise from many conservatives, including commentator Ann Coulter, who tweeted Tuesday: "We got our leader back."
Radio talk-show host Laura Ingraham added that the president "made some points that were factually right."
"There was violence on both sides in that event Saturday," she said. "Anyone who watched the video could see it."
News of Murdoch's criticism of Trump drew sharp blowback from some conservative quarters.
A Breitbart News story on the Murdoch letter drew over 2,500 comments from angry readers, most supportive of Trump and critical of Fox News.
Here are some examples:
•    "James Murdoch and his ilk destroyed Fox and is a traitor to the people who made Fox News number 1."
•    "It's amazing how the leftist business leaders think it's ok to take these publicly funded businesses into failure by alienating their Conservative customers."
•    "If Trump was saying and doing the things that the dishonest press 'reports,' I would agree that he is badly hurting the country. The fact that the dishonest press is distorting and smearing him puts the onus on the dishonest press for badly hurting the country. When do fake journalists have to answer for sedition?"

THE AMERICAN LEFTIST BODY POLITIC IS INFECTED WITH A NEW DISEASE. IT IS "TRUMP HATE".
Far beyond the symptoms (great objection to his stated policies),
and far beyond the visceral reaction to his selection by the American people, this body's Immune System has gone into overdrive against a perceived existential threat - an gross overreaction well-known in Medicine as Sepsis, the outcome of which is often the demise of the organism which the System is designed to protect. The latest reflection of this is to be found in the Sunday NYTimes (August 20, 2017), specifically the Sunday Review. The obscenity of the page 1 image which introduces the page 1 article entitled "Trump Hate" cannot be described. There follow page after page of articles dripping with contempt and hatred. And as if not enough, the publication includes a long and hysterical article in the NYTimes Magazine on Breitbart, way over-the-top.
All of this found throughout the Media is not just sick; it is Septic Shock. And it will kill that organism by the 2018 national elections.
Meanwhile, the renowned liberal Professor of Law Alan Dershowitz continues to identify further signs of this process. See his recent statement, below:

"Weaponized Russia probe really endangers Democracy".

The American People will survive this. The organized Fourth Estate, constitutionally our Immune System , will not. We will all be more at risk with the loss.

Dershowitz: Weaponized Russia Probe 'Really Endangers Democracy'

The Russian investigation and the appointment of FBI special counsel Robert Mueller has become a political weapon of the left, one that "really endangers democracy," self-proclaimed "liberal," author, and law professor Alan Dershowitz said.
"The idea of trying to create crimes just because we disagree with [Trump] politically, and target him, really endangers democracy," Dershowitz told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "[It] reminds me of what Lavrentiy Beria, the head of the KGB, said to Stalin: 'Show me the man, and I will find you the crime.'
"We shouldn't be targeting people. We shouldn't be looking for crimes they've committed. We should only being using the criminal justice system against obvious crimes. Crimes that are not not stretched and manufactured to fit a particular person."
Dershowitz's position is discussed in his new book "Trumped Up: How Criminalization of Political Differences Endangers Democracy," available on Amazon.
"It's about how you can disagree with President Trump – you can agree with him – that's every American's right," Dershowitz said.

HISTORICAL MONUMENTS, THEIR HISTORY, THEIR MEANING AND THEIR VALUE TO AMERICA TODAY.
Please review the attached article and especially the interview with Dr. Charles Krauthammer.

The vast preponderance of Americans today see and deal with all of their fellow Americans as who they are and as whether they are contributing fairly as Americans. They are Not racists. They are Not White Supremacists. The true Racists today are those who strive to elevate one race or group over the rest of us, the most blatant of those being some Black "leaders" and their ignorant followers. And the vast majority of Americans will not tolerate and will strongly resist any fellow citizens and also non-citizens who seek to establish themselves, through the voting process or in the streets, as privileged over all of the rest of us. We are all guaranteed "life, liberty and the Pursuit of happiness".

These references provided are invaluable in debunking the broad brush approach to our complex past and current national History. And the message is especially important for the education of our children and grandchildren - who are being taught none of this, a great and dangerous tragedy.

"RAPID RESPONSE: DAILY COMMENTARY ON NEWS OF THE DAY".
Since March, 2003, shortly before the beginning of the Iraq War, I have been offering my considered opinions and insights, always supported with reference to specific statements by respected national commentators of the American and international scenes.

This work is not interactive, as are "social media". But I am always available to discuss and debate positions with informed and rational visitors to these pages.

In addition, this web site, in operation for decades, comprises 45 other Categories of information offered as a public service by a Physician with over 60 years of experience and also an Attorney at Law since 1984.

Given the current declining state of public discourse and the rising state of Ignorance, this should be of value.  It is certainly of value to me.

In addition, I strongly recommend: the articles posted in the Opinion section of the WSJ, although not some of its Editorials; "Special Report" with Bret Baier (Fox News); "The Story" with Martha MacCallum (Fox News); the work of Tucker Carlson (Fox News); the columns of Cal Thomas; and the mostly objective observations of Dr. Charles Krauthammer.

David Horowitz: Charlottesville Is Biggest 'Fake News' of Summer
Editor’s Note: David Horowitz is the author of the runaway New York Times bestseller "Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America." His book first predicted the anti-Trump left would use race to divide America and undermine the Trump presidency. His op-ed for Newsmax appears below. Get more info on "Big Agenda".
 
The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war.
Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.
The organizers of the "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists.
But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else.
They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU.
If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit?
Who knows what — if anything — would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.
What Unite the Right actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the "Alt-Right" is actually a negligible group.
This supposed national show of strength actually attracted all of 500 people.
Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshaled by two violent groups of the left — Black Lives Matter and Antifa — and you get an idea of how marginal "white supremacists" are to America's political and cultural life.
Yet "white supremacy" and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports.
Talk about virtue signaling!
Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent leftwing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.
Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not apply for permits, which would have been denied since there was another demonstration scheduled for that park on that day.
But why should they have applied for a permit, since the mayhem they had previously caused in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as "protests," and their rioting went completely unpunished.
In other words, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville — a legal protest by Unite the Right and an illegal protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life.
Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable.
Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.
What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy — "white supremacy" — which is really a war on white people generally.
The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is "identity politics" — the idea that the world consists of two groups — "people of color" who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors.
This is the real race war.
Its noxious themes inform the mindless, hysterical hatred of President Trump, and the equally mindless support of racist mobs like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
It is a war from which no good can come. But it won’t be stopped unless enough people have the courage to stand up and name it for what it is.

"WHAT WOULD I DO?"
Born in 1933, (on the exact day that Hitler came to power in Germany),
I was aware by the end of that decade of what my parents were going through in the Depression. And I was definitely aware of Dec. 7, 1941.
From about that time onward, I have regularly tasked myself with the above question regarding important current events.
Now comes North Korea and its paranoid leader.
What would I do?
1) I would not bluff. I would try to negotiate, but from a position at least of equality and definitely of overwhelming strength. If we say we can and will do something, we must be able to do it.
2) Two equally important goals must be the protection of South Korea and the protection of the United States and of its territories.
3) Based upon the enemy's own declarations taken at face value, we must declare that any further missiles launched by them will be promptly destroyed.
4) We must also declare that any hostile action begun on the South Korean border, conventional or otherwise, will be immediately neutralized by conventional and tactical nuclear weaponry, including neutron bombs.
5) We must warn any other potential belligerents (ie, China and Russia) that we have no desire to expand the above actions - all taken defensively - unless they attack us, either directly or through North Korea.
6) We must again remind China and Russia, especially China, that only they have the ability to avoid any of this.
7) We must notify the world, through the U.N. and otherwise, that our defensive position is firm, regardless of any action or inaction on their part. And we must seek whatever help they might be able to provide to defuse this situation.
That's what I would do, given the information I have.

To pee or not to pee?

I pay my taxes & the government
Distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

In order to get that paycheck, in my case,
I am required to pass a random urine test

To people who don't have to pass a urine test.

Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check
Because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.
I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their BUTT----doing drugs while I work..

God's Plan For Aging
      
Most seniors never get enough exercise.  In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking.  And God looked down and saw that it was good.
      
Then God saw there was another need.  In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach and stretch.  And God looked down and saw that it was good.
      
Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise.  God looked down and saw that it was good.

No. 5    Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day.  Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
      
No. 4    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.
      
No. 3    All of us could take a lesson from the weather.  It pays no attention to criticism.
      
No. 2    In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird.  Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
      
No. 1    Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers.  What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.

TRUE, TRUE...BUT HOW MUCH RELATED?
Yes, global warming / climate change is occurring.
Yes, human activity is playing a role.
BUT how much of a role?

How much can 21st century humanity change its MO without catastrophic effects from the changes themselves?
And how much of an effect would such changes have on the climate changes we are witnessing and projecting?
I have not seen answers to these questions. They must be answered.

Something The Media Missed

You're a 19 year old kid.

You're critically wounded and dying in
the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam .

It's November 11, 1967. 
LZ (landing zone) X-ray.

Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so  intense from 100 yards away, that  your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out.

Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.
You look up to see a Huey coming in But.. It doesn't seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.

Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you.

He's not MedEvac so it's not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.

Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at a time on board.

Then he  flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety.

And, he kept coming back!! 13 more  times!!
Until all  the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.
He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.


Medal  of Honor Recipient, Captain Ed Freeman,  United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in Boise , Idaho
 
May God Bless and Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing,  but we've sure seen a whole bunch about Lindsay Lohan, Tiger Woods and the bickering of congress over Health Reform.

AFGHANISTAN: 16 YEARS AND COUNTING.

Here are three questions that have never been answered for the public.

1) Why is it in our national interest to be there? I believe that there are valid answers; eg. Russia, Iran, Iraq.

2) Afghanistan will never be won without neutralizing the cross-border participation of Pakistan. Are we willing to undertake that, with its possible implications, including effects on India - Pakistan relationship?

3) Afghanistan will never be held without total and permanent destruction of its opium production - the greatest in the world. Are we willing to do that?

Why do we not hear about answers to these basic questions...including from Senator John McCain?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I STAY HOME ON SATURDAY
AND READ THE "REVIEW" SECTION OF  THE WSJ?
I LEARN!
And I learn without the incessant Leftist editorialization that infects all sections of the NYTimes...all the time.
This section by itself is worth the price of admission to a great general newspaper, certainly the new "newspaper of record".
Herewith follow my comments on several offerings from the
Review section for August 5, 2017.
1) "Priest of Nature", by Rob Iliffe. Who knew that the seminal scientist Sir Isaac Newton was fervently religious and was convinced that "humans were made in the image of God and that rational thought could provide insight into the Creator God." Scientists who live long enough and who are honest with themselves will arrive at the same conclusion.
2) "Stanton: Lincoln's War Secretary", by Walter Stahl. Although Abraham Lincoln was a hands-on Commander - in - Chief, this was the man who made victory possible, and then who avenged Lincoln's assassination.
3) "Putin's Russia Is Going Global", by Eugene Rumer and Andrew S. Weiss. This should be required reading for anyone who wants to avoid WW IV. Because this is a classic case of America and the West "bringing a knife to a gunfight." Today, Putin (who IS Russia) is winning globally, both directly and through his surrogates, by "exploiting opportunities to undermine and hollow out the U.S. - led international order, with its norms of economic openness, democratic accountability and the rule of law." The end - game in such a fight is desperation, over-reaction...and WW IV. Better to meet power with comparable power now, by using as much Executive Action as this President will exert in the present - and wait for "democratic accountability and the rule of law" to catch up. Especially now when America's democratic processes are held hostage by ignorance, hypocrisy, cynical self-service, and just plain cowardice.

I continue to be a supporter of Pope Francis as the Holy Father.
However, although some of the following may be a bit hyperbolic, I hope that the Pope does not confuse bedrock Christian philosophy with cookie-cutter Socialist politics. That would undermine both his personal and hierarchical standing and also the unity of the Church in very dangerous times.

MORE ON "DUNKIRK", THE WHITEWASH.
A week ago, I offered a "non-movie review".
Now comes another commentary which also references that of Dorothy Rabinowitz which I noted.
See '"Dunkirk'  Is Popular But Incomplete Film", by Richard Cohen, in The Day August 2, 2017, Opinion, pA4. In it, the author notes: "Since its July 21 opening, it has taken in over $100 million in North America and been hailed by ecstatic critics everywhere". Not one penny of mine; and no ecstasy here . "It is deaf to history", intentionally omitting all reference to the Germans and to the Churchill leadership.
But who can blame the director for simply wanting to make hundreds of millions of dollars on the vapid and uninformed masses who now populate our society.
And there's more.  The movie could have actually performed a service by informing all of "the rest of the story", that of the "Lancrastria", a Britsh Cunard luxury liner that had been converted to a troop ship and that was attempting to rescue more evacuees from a point 400 miles from Dunkirk. That ship was attacked by German bombers and went down with over 7,000 aboard, more than the combined total lost on the Lusitania and the Titanic.
See: "In Dunkirk's Aftermath, Tragedy, Triumph and Two Chaplains", in National Catholic Register", August 6-19, 2017, pA1.
The dumbing - down of America continues.

MORE ABOUT DR. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER.
My readers (I know you're there) know that I have been often both glowing about and occasionally critical of this fine observer.
On Thursday, August 3 on the Tucker Carlson Fox News report, this trained Psychiatrist exhibited something approaching anxiety - or as much as his personality could muster.  Essentially he stressed
(paraphrasing) "Be Afraid.  Be very afraid". He was referring the the incessant efforts of the Left, and of Establishment types, to run Donald Trump out of office in some way, any way.  And he broadly indicated that such an effort to steal the election from the people could be dangerous.
You're damned right! It could produce a Civil War.
Now that we're clear on that, let's stick with "the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth"

LET'S HEAR IT FOR "FAKE NEWS".
Just kidding, folks.
But here is a fascinating story about Elmyr de Hory:
a Very Original Fake.
My sources here are: a) the article on this real "fake" artist in Wikipedia; and b) "F for Fake", a fine documentary film by Orson Welles (1973 or 1974).
As an "executive summary" - and a real question for the ages - I can do no better than to quote directly from the Wikipedia article:
"In Welles film, de Hory questioned what it was that made his forgeries inferior to the actual paintings created by the artists he imitated, particularly since they had fooled so many experts, and were always appreciated when it was believed that they were genuine. In 'F for Fake', Welles also poses questions about the nature of the creative process, how trickery, illusion and duplicity often prevail in the art world, and thus, in some respects, downplays the culpability of the art forger de Hory and outliers like him."
In any case: A Very Original Fake.
