My Brother's Memorial Day

46 years ago today, in the early morning hours, B co. 1st 506th 101st Airborne Division was attacked in it's night lager position near Firebase Ripcord, Thua Thien, South Vietnam. The main thrust of the attack was focused on the sector of the perimeter protected by the 2nd platoon, which was overrun. When the attack ended 4 men were dead-23 year old SSgt Vic Cambas of New Orleans, 20 year old SSgt Halqua Cliburn married and out of Tennessee, 20 year old Cpl John Angel Garza from California, and 19 year old Cpl Rodney Lee Koerner of Le Mars Iowa. There were at least 9 other WIA from the platoon including 41 year old SFC Grady Norris who would die of wounds the next day. 2nd platoon was declared combat ineffective and the survivors sent to other units until B co. could reorganize. Say a prayer for the young men who died that day and maybe one for my brother Brian, who was there.

Why Bernie can't drop out? Because he is being deceived. Repeatedly.

I won't list a litany of cases from the missing Colorado delegate to the "My fingers were crossed" promised California debate to this weeks surprise Clinton Coronation BEFORE the primaries by a "news outfit". But at midnight, a day after announcing Sanders had been beaten in California we are told that nearly half (three million) votes have not yet been tabulated and may not be for two more weeks!

This is usually the part in a hard fought campaign when an "honest broker" works to reconcile the candidates and their supporters. Well in this case the head of the DNC is out. Sander's cannot trust his opponent-she has a history of reneging on promises. Obama is the only possibility and now if he calls for Sanders to drop out before the convention he to may be viewed as tainted.

So no-I'm not ready to make nice. Clinton and the DNC and the media has earned my distrust. They'll just have to live with that.

It's a lie

the DNC SAID SDs don't count until they are voted and AP should be banned from this site for lying deliberately.

ďIf Iíve lost Cronkite, Iíve lost Middle America.Ē

No offense to Katie Couric, Brian Williams, and whoever is anchoring the news at ABC right now (Diane Sawyer? Really?), but itís hard to imagine any of them saying anything that would help lead a president of the United States to consider leaving office. But thatís what happened 42 years ago tonight, when CBS Nightly News anchor Walter Cronkite concluded a special broadcast on the recent Tet Offensive with a rare, brief, and potent editorial suggesting that America cease fighting the Vietnam War.
That evening, the highly-respected and influential Cronkite said:
To say that we are closer to victory today is to believe, in the face of the evidence, the optimists who have been wrong in the past. To suggest we are on the edge of defeat is to yield to unreasonable pessimism. To say that we are mired in stalemate seems the only realistic, yet unsatisfactory, conclusion. On the off chance that military and political analysts are right, in the next few months we must test the enemyís intentions, in case this is indeed his last big gasp before negotiations. But it is increasingly clear to this reporter that the only rational way out then will be to negotiate, not as victors, but as an honorable people who lived up to their pledge to defend democracy, and did the best they could.
President Lyndon Johnson, watching live in the White House, reportedly then turned to aides and said, ďIf Iíve lost Cronkite, Iíve lost Middle America.Ē

So far this week Clinton has lost Time.com, USA Today, and others...

I feel certain we can easily child-proof gorilla cages

But after the unwatched child climbs under the fence no fair complaining when he is knocked unconscious by the electricity in the secondary wire barrier.

She's just a girl whose intentions are good...

Oh Lord, please don't let her be misunderstood.......
Diane Feinstein

So if Hillary is elected

...will she agree to have a password on the nuclear football or do we all spend her presidency worrying about her triggering Armegeddon by accidentally wiping a "Go" button, like with a cloth???

I have an alternative thesis

Keeping in mind that this may just be a piece of the motive-it's 3 days before a round of primaries and the suspicion is that Sanders will romp in Oregon and It will be a toss-up in Kentucky. If Sanders and Clinton split the narrative continues that it is all over but the shouting. But if Bernie manages to snag both the morning headlines are all about insurgent momentum.

Can you picture a better way to tip the critical Kentucky primary 1 or 2 percentage points than all day coverage of "Socialist Riots" in the Nevada Caucuses? From nowhere a single blogger (who later admits he wasn't even in the room when the supposed riot occurs) is picked up by AP and spreads virus like throughout the mainstream and dominates media coverage for the last critical 48 hours? Remember that the story began to fall apart the day after the primary.

Maybe a Bernie win in Kentucky was what Barbara Boxer and the party were willing to lie to prevent.

'Hillary must NEVER become President', says the woman who exposed Bill's affair with Monica Read mo

Linda Tripp, now 65, was a civil servant who had a ringside seat during Clinton's administration with office directly adjacent to Hillary's
She exposed President Clinton affair with Monica because it was the culmination of years of so much corruption
Although she was vilified for her role in the scandal, she breaks years of silence to tell Daily Mail Online she would do it again
During the bimbo eruptions Hillary 'destroyed women so that their stories never saw the light of day,' Tripp says
She went from being a lackluster First Lady with unimpressive approval numbers to First Victim
Hillary will stop at nothing to achieve her end - the Presidency - and see the public as plebians easily seduced into believing her, says Tripp
