Militia Memorial Day shout-out from NTC-Fort Irwin, or, Stop saying ‘Happy’ Memorial Day!

Private First Class Tonimarie A. Morrow with the 444th Chemical Company, Illinois Army National Guard, ‘enjoys’ a breakfast MRE at NTC, 26 MAY 2017.

Illinois, Kansas and Mississippi National Guard units are spending their Memorial weekend at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, California.  Before you watch the video’s I noticed most everybody says “have a happy Memorial Day”.  The problem is that Memorial Day is not supposed to be ‘happy’, it’s about your fellow citizens being killed in combat. 

Video, Mississippi Militiaman Sergeant Griffin:

First Lieutenant Jamie Felix wishes everybody a “safe Memorial Day.”

Mama’s Fried Chicken! In Hot as Hell Mojave-land NTC?

Actually, during non-Summer months the high temps at Fort Irwin, California, aren’t that bad.  In the Gregorian month of May the average high temperature is 28C (83F).  A record high temp for May hit 42C (107F).  Back in 1998 I went to NTC with Idaho’s 116th Armored Cav (as a 13F with the 148th FA BN), and unfortunately it was during the hottest time of the year when the average high temp is around 38C (100F), and record highs hit 46C (114F)!  By the way, 1998 was one of those record setting years for high temps.

In 2014, TV personality Gordon Ramsay videoed the biggest cooking challenge of the show MasterChef at Fort Irwin, California.

Currently the Illinois, Kanasa and Mississippi National Guards are doing a three weeks ‘rotation’ at NTC, started right before the Memorial weekend.  What’re they going to eat?  Supposedly you get two yummy (not) MREs and a hot meal per day (reality is you could go days without a hot cooked meal). But Mississippi’s Militia cooks boast they’re up to the job of providing at least one hot cooked meal per day for the 3-thousand-8-hundred-plus Militia personnel on the current rotation, even going as far as optimistically promising Sergeant First Class ‘Mama’ Jackson’s fried chicken:

United States surrenders warships to Vietnam?

“Vietnam’s future prosperity depends upon a stable and peaceful maritime environment. The United States and the rest of the international community also benefit from regional stability, which is why we are here today, and it is why we are very pleased to be working together with the Vietnam Coast Guard.”-Ted Osius, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam, 22 MAY 2017

Nemesis to the United States, Vietnam, got a new (to them) cutter warship from the U.S. Coast Guard.  Vietnam also received six ‘new build’ boats from the U.S. Department of State!

U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau hand over ceremony in Hawaii, 25 MAY 2017.

The nearly 50 years old former U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau was transferred to the Vietnamese coast guard, under the name CSB-8020, on 25 MAY 2017 in Hawaii.

On 22 MAY 2017, U.S. Ambassador Ted Osius officiated over the presentation of six new 45 feet long Defiant patrol boats (built in Louisiana) to Vietnam in Quang Nam Province.

“This cutter [Morgenthau-CSB-8020] provides a concrete and significant symbol of the U.S.-Vietnam Comprehensive Partnership. The Coast Guard is honored to see this vessel continue to preserve global peace and prosperity as a part of the Vietnam coast guard.”-Rear Admiral Michael J. Haycock, U.S. Coast Guard

Ostensibly the ‘gift’ of U.S. taxpayer funded military boats to Vietnam is to fight smuggling, illicit trafficking, piracy and illegal fishing.  It’s more likely part of the U.S. Pivot to Asia military policy started under the Obama regime.

West Virginia Militia spends $3.7-million on a gate!

26 May 2017 (14:56 UTC-07 Tango 06) 05 Khordad 1396/29 Sha ‘ban 1438/01 Yi Si(5th) 4715

West Virginia National Guard’s 130th Airlift Wing revealed its new $3.75-million USD entry way (gate) to McLaughlin Air National Guard Base, as well as the West Virginia Joint Force Headquarters.

Major General James Hoyer admitted there were “security deficiencies” with the old base entryway.  Colonel Johnny Ryan added that it “will significantly improve traffic flow onto our installation and reduce congestion into the neighborhoods surrounding us.”

What did taxpayers get for $3.75-million?  A new sign, 4-hundred-square-feet guard facility, 1-thousand-6-hundred-square-feet inspection canopy with three inspection lanes, a driver waiting area, and a ‘rain garden’ to deal with storm water runoff.

Obama Legacy: Illegal cyber-police ops skyrocket!

“If we determine this to be true, this is an enormous abuse of power. This will dwarf all other stories.”-Rand Paul, U.S. Senator telling Fox News that the Obama regime was using NSA to spy on politicians

“Since 2011, NSA’s minimization procedures have prohibited use of U.S.-person identifiers to query the results of upstream Internet collections under Section 702. The Oct. 26, 2016 notice informed the court that NSA analysts had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”-U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruling

It’s been revealed that illegal spying on U.S. citizens by their own government skyrocketed under the Obama regime, under orders from Barack Obama!

Circa.com reports that under Obama there was a three fold increase in illegal, 4th Amendment rights violating, searches by the National Security Agency.

The Obama regime admitted to the crime during a closed door meeting with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on 26 October 2016.  One out of 20 U.S. citizens had their data illegally captured under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

“….it does call into question all those defenses that we kept hearing, that we always have a robust oversight structure and we have culture of adherence to privacy standards. And the headline now is they actually haven’t been in compliance for years and the FISA court itself says in its opinion is that the NSA suffers from a culture of a lack of candor.”– Neema Singh Guliani, American Civil Liberties Union
