To Continue to the Point - We must start thinking in this vein.

El Zorro enunciates in better words than I, and shares the following.   This passage is perhaps the best statement about the ethos of a Texian, a Confederate, and/or an American that I have ever studied.  It comes from one of us...El Zorro. 


Here is the comment I would have shared:
 
“It is a sad thing that we should worry about our neighbor and who he might be with some hatred for us hidden in his ethos wrought by such an evil theology.  After all, this is America where Americans used to help their neighbors and were sure of thier reciprocity.  But, here we are.  Unfortunately we have to take care of ourselves first.  We cannot depend on a government to ensure our wellbeing, especially not this one.  So we have to profile our neighbors, acquaintances, and fellows with whom we share our earth.  The hatred against us does not go away because we say we will not participate.  Jan Morgan chooses to risk some of her business to keep it and her clients safe.  As the saying goes, ‘We have to be right always, they only have to be right once’.  I don't like it but I understand it.  To those of ethnicities who are suffering from the hate and ignorance of the few among them we would offer apology; however, that is a small recompense.”

     We are blessed to have various OROGs who critique and contribute.  It is truly a blessing.   This is one of those times especially.   Remember that El Zorro sent the centre-piece around which we had to finally point out with no political correctness the utter vileness of Islamic inspired terrorism.  If some girl from Arkansas, and an old warrior out of Viet Nam with a War Record easily one million times more impressive than mine could ever be spun....then El Gringo Viejo has to stick his neck out at least a little.
 
     That was a contribution from the other side of the mountain, in the recesses and mixed with the hamlets of extreme northern parts of the Republic of Texas.  Now comes our  espionage specialists and agents we have inserted into the extreme centre of the Republic, to keep an eye on Reconstruction Occupation troops and carpetbaggers and the Democrats.
 
Carmen Miranda
1909  -  1955

   Frankly, El Zorro's contribution is humiliating....but I am up to it.  This next one is pretty much the same, but from way out in centre-field.  This is something that is very, very familiar, but there is that Paul Harvey moment....you know...."...the rest of the story."  We shall put it up without much further ado, and with as little commentary as possible.  Performing artists are a weird, strange, and interesting bunch.   My respect goes out to Carmen Miranda, for instance, who knew she had a condition, and she knew that condition had brought the Angel of Death onto the very stage where was performing one night.  But, even though she felt the pangs, pains, and anguish of what she knew would be her final moments on this earth....she went back on stage and completed her routine....to a standing ovation....her last.

     This following submission is in the same vein, but in an entirely different direction.  You will know you are an American....(or a Texian)...when you go through this next entry on this blog.

Have you heard this before?
 
You can't get tired of this....
 
"Frank Sinatra considered Kate Smith the best singer of her time, and said that when he and a million other guys first heard her sing "God Bless America" on the radio, they all pretended to have dust in their eyes as they wiped away a tear or two.
 
Here are the facts... The link at the bottom will take you to a video showing the very first public singing of "GOD BLESS AMERICA". But before you watch it, you should also know the story behind the first public showing of the song.
 
The time was 1940. America was still in a terrible economic depression.Hitler was taking over Europe and Americans were afraid we'd have to go to war. It was a time of hardship and worry for most Americans.This was the era just before TV, when radio shows were HUGE, and American families sat around their radios in the evenings, listening to their
 
Favorite entertainers, and no entertainer of that era was bigger than Kate Smith.
 
Kate was also large; plus size, as we now say, and the popular phrase still used today is in deference to her, "It ain't over till the fat lady sings".Kate Smith might not have made it big in the age of TV, but with her voice coming over the radio, she was the biggest star of her time.
 
Kate was also patriotic. It hurt her to see Americans so depressed and afraid of what the next day would bring . She had hope for America , and faith in her fellow Americans. She wanted to do something to cheer them up, so she went to the famous American song-writer, Irving Berlin (who also wrote "White Christmas") and asked him to write a song that would make Americans feel good again about their country. When she described what she was looking for, he said he
 
Had just the song for her.
 
He went to his files and found a song that he had written, but never published,
22 years before - way back in 1917. He gave it to her and she worked on it with her studio orchestra. She and Irving Berlin were not sure how the song would be received by the public, but both agreed they would not take any profits from God Bless America . Any profits would go to the Boy Scouts of America. Over the years, the Boy Scouts have received millions of dollars in royalties from this song.
 
This video starts out with Kate Smith coming into the radio studio with the orchestra and an audience. She introduces the new song for the very first time, and starts singing. After the first couple verses, with her voice in the background still singing, scenes are shown from the 1940 movie, "You're In The Army Now." At the 4:20 mark of the video you see a young actor in the movie, sitting in an office, reading a paper; it's Ronald Reagan.
 
To this day, God Bless America stirs our patriotic feelings and pride in our country. Back in 1940, when Kate Smith went looking for a song to raise the spirits of her fellow Americans, I doubt whether she realized just how successful the results would be for her fellow Americans during those years of hardship and worry.....
 
And for many generations of Americans to follow.
 
Many people don't know there's a lead in to the song since it usually starts with "God Bless America ....." So here's the entire song as originally sung.....
 
Let us pray He still does, and it's still not too late.

Bang, bang and What if?

____________________________________________________ 
 
BANG, BANG, SHE SHOT HIM DEAD?
 
    
Above, we have pictured Cristina Fernandez Vda. de Kirchner when like all of us, she was much younger.   She was even closer to her marxist, machine-gun toting, jungle-dwelling, camouflaged persona then.  But, commie guerrilla babes, like men, have their life-epic characteristics.  A man is once a man but twice a child.
     A deranged commie guerrilla babe is once a caring socialist democrat and twice a deranged commie guerrilla babe....only in the third lap she becomes a Helen Thomas Award Winning deranged commie guerrilla old battle-ax hag; like (Sir Edmund)Hillary.  In fairness, she has been quite ill during the last few months.  That is not a joking matter, and we dislike pointing it out.
     She, as in the case of many Ladies Macbeth, have the compounding element to their physical conditions of those haunting memories of all the little people who have been damaged...terribly damaged....by unbridled, pointless ambition.   Women who believe in nothing but that which is based upon the hatred of men....and children.....never age well.   Like bad wine, they turn into horrible vinegar.
      This revolucionaria izquierdista  zeal causes females to do really strange things, such as to put on the uniforms of conformity...as in the case of the Mary Knoll nuns, or the upper administration of the Girl Scouts of America, in the vestments and mitres of what used to be Orthodox churches....and then demand that those institutions do everything possible to destroy the societies and cultures they once nurtured.  Imperfectly, certainly,  but in most cases those institutions served well, we might point out.

     Of greatest import, besides destroying traditionalism in all of its forms, is to destroy the House of David, the Tribe of Israel, The Hebrew, any thing remotely pertinent to just being any kind of passive or active Hebe.   The Jew and the Jews are an arrogant bunch of cusses, that is true.  But they are in the main rational and generous people.  They are orderly.  They are clean. They are somewhat deferential. And they even say Merry Christmas and accept such wishes, and they even smile a bit when one of the Goyim mails him/her a Happy Hanukkah card during the Christmastide.
     No nation, no peoples can long survive once  serious attempts are made to destroy the Jew, Judaism, Israel as a land, or Israel as a concept.   It is because, for all their corruption, their mafia, their pettiness....the Jew is a great peoples and full of a goodness, productivity, and generosity that far outweighs whatever liabilities they present to mankind.

     So now come la Presidente Cristina Fernandez Widow of Kirchner (her formal name), and after much flurry, ducking, diving, and obfuscation during the past 96 hours, she has decided that lead investigator Alberto Nisman's "suicide" , as she had previously style the event, is now probably a "murder" by some of her detractors who are trying to frame and  defame her.  Even she now points to the improbability that a man would shoot himself in the middle of the forehead, and leave a burn diameter of about 4 1/2 inches.  It is a terribly clumsy shot to try to make.   Something similar to Vince Foster's blowing his brains out without back splatter onto his freshly cleaned, starched white shirt. 
    The lead investigator now is suggesting that, after the discovery of a clandestine entrance and exit point, that had been used recently, and the nature of the wound, "forced suicide" or "execution-style murder" is very much a possibility.

THIS IS THE NATURE OF IRANIAN COUNTER-INFORMATION:  

Zionists Responsible for Bombing Argentinian Jewish Centre
 
Purpose of these Mahyudi monsters: to lay the blame on Hezbollah and the Islamic Republic on Iran to gain internationals support to attack and destroy them.
Note: to gain sympathy for the Zionist cause as well as to gain a greater grip of control over the South American continent, Carlos Vladmir Corach, orchestrated the bombing of a Jewish Center through a bribe. It was no minor fee. Rather, it was $400,000 dollars in the year 1994, which is a massive amount of money for that time, equivalent to well over $2 million today.
The bribe was paid, the bomb probably pre-made by the Zionist cabal of which it is expert, and then the hit man drove it to the area and blew the facility up. It is the same pattern always taken by these wretched ones, just as they did in the King David Hotel, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and far more. They blow innocents up for malicous aims of gaining support for the Zionist strip. Killing innocents, including fellow Jews, is their specialty.
What a huge find it is to pin-down the connection, to determine the modus operandi of Zionist moles and how they will slaughter their own and countless others in the attempt to achieve their wicked aims. One major goal: to blame the bombing on Islamic Iran to gain international support for their criminal intentions against this country. Thus, the attack was planned and organized through Mahyudi monsters in Tel Aviv.  
Now it is known exactly how the Zionists butcher people and then cover their tracks. For certain they are behind the so-called Syrian conflict. Yet, in this case, too, they use hit-man, tens of thousands of them, that is so that the ultimate perpetrators, Israeli moles, cannot be discovered. In Syria, too, countless Christians have perished, their religious institutions destroyed.

In Syria, too, countless Christians have perished, their religious institutions destroyed.     How dare the Churches support these Zionists. Surely, numerous Argentinian Christians also perished. Thus, America’s Churches are supporting the mass murder of the people of Christianity, including clergymen.

PLEASE NOTE THAT EVEN WIKIPEDIA.ORG FINDS THE ABOVE ARTICLE RANKING ABOUT 1,000 ON THE SCALE OF 100 IN TERMS OF PREPOSTEROUS INCREDIBILITY.   IT FLIES INTO THE IONOSPHERE OF RIDICULOUS, IMPOSSIBLE, AND DERANGED.   IT IS THE STUFF THAT VALERIE JARRETT, BARRY SOETORO, VAN JONES, SUSAN RICE, AND HILLARY (when sober) BELIEVE IN THEIR HEARTS AND MINDS.

WIKIPEDIA, NO FRIEND OF ISRAEL, ATTACHES TO THE ABOVE IRANIAN PRESS RELEASE, WIKIPEDIA'S OWN SUMMARY OF THE TRUE AND KNOWN EVENTS SURROUNDING THE EXPLOSION THAT KILLED SCORES.
______________________________________________________

The AMIA bombing was an attack on the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA; Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) building. It occurred in Buenos Aires on July 18, 1994, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds. It was Argentina‘s deadliest bombing ever. Argentina is home to a Jewish community of 200,000, among the largest in Latin America. On October 25, 2006, Argentine prosecutors Alberto Nisman and Marcelo Martínez Burgos formally accused the government of Iran of directing the bombing, and the Hezbollah militia of carrying it out.
On July 18, 1994, a Renault Trafic van bomb loaded with about 275 kilograms (610 lb) of ammonium nitrate fertilizer and fuel oil explosive mixture,[11] was detonated in front of the Jewish Community Center located in a densely constructed commercial area of Buenos Aires. The explosive is thought to have been arranged to focus the blast on the building 3 to 5 metres (9.8 to 16 ft) away, exhibiting a shaped charge or explosively formed penetrator effect.[citation needed] The exterior walls of this five story building were of brick masonry construction, which supported the floor slabs. The air blast from the bomb totally destroyed the exposed load-bearing walls which, in turn, led to progressive failure of the floor slabs and virtually total collapse of the building.[citation needed] Such bearing-wall buildings are notable for their tendency to be brought down in this manner by localized damage.[12]
Eighty-five people died, the majority of whom were Jewish (although many non-Jews were also killed). More than 300 others were wounded.
File photo shows bombed AMIA building in Buenos Aires.In the days following the bombing, Israel sent Mossad agents to Argentina to investigate. The Israeli Police also sent a team of four forensic scientists to assist with the building of ante mortem files and victim identification; the IDF sent personnel to help the Argentines with body extrication. Argentina closed its borders after the attack, fearing more terrorists could enter.

     To be sure, there are specific Iranians who have been concretely identified as having been directly involve in this act of mass murder.   Truth be known, two of them were under the microscope in the case of the Murrah Building disaster in Oklahoma at around the same time.  Same M.O. and same named and physically identical personalities.   But, tsk, tsk, it was all actually Rush Limbaugh's fault, according to Billy Jeff and Janet Reno.


     This is the Post Office Bulletin Boards' wall of shame, below.
Even stupid, infidel Americans will recognise
two, three, or four of these beasts.  According
 to Interpol and other reliable sources, it is a
certainty that these men were involved in the
Argentine bombing in 1994.
____________________________________________________ 
    So now we have the tight spot for Madam Cristina.   Her husband was involved in the cover-up of the Iranian involvement up to the time of his death.   Cristina maintained that the explosion was part of a criminal enterprise internal to the Jewish Centre.  Later it was exposed that Argentina had extracted very favourable terms on a trade of wheat for oil from the Iranians.   It was widely presumed and later proven that such was the case, and it was definitely linked to an "appreciation tax" levied by the Argentine leftist government.  After all, they had a common enemy...America.

     And Cristina has been caught with her false eyelashes in the wringer.   We await developments, and we are somewhat surprised by the willingness of the Argentine judiciary to stand tough on this matter.   Surprised and cautiously pleased.

Suffer ye not the fool.....


     It is good advice.   We should not listen to, or especially follow, bad counsel.  Do we follow those who say that the United States Army developed Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome and sold the idea of contaminating homosexuals so as to eliminate that "problem" to Ronald W. Reagan? 
     Do we solve social problems brought on by multigenerational welfare dependency (developed cold-bloodedly as a vote-slave project for the leftist parties), and then listen to people say things like, "Just think what she has done for women and children".  Do we then blame white people, the self-sufficient, and conservative "minority" individuals for producing the crime statistics?
     Do we follow the advice of a prevaricator who jets around the world, shaking down countries, businesses, and people with the notion that only he can save the world from drowning and burning down....if only we can starve the trees from eating carbon dioxide.

   Now, cometh citizen Charlie Rike, from Donna, Texas who prays to establish The Truth.  He writes to the Editor of the McAllen Monitor, a generally leftist, "pro-minority" daily the following piece, truly drawn from inter-planetary inspiration:

     Climate Change:
          I could not let the letter recently from a gentleman from Edinburg go unanswered.  I think I can tell by his denial of the change in climate that he is a neo-con or a far-right type who still refers to "climate change" as "global warming":   who still believes that there are no changes in the weather caused by our pollution.  I happen to believe, however, like the majority of people who are alive and awake on this Earth , that there are indeed dramatic radical sudden changes in the weather!  We have witnessed here in the sunny (Lower) Rio Grand Valley, two crazy winters in a row.
     Just think that the temperature dipped to just 36 degrees (F).  That's unheard of here  and the same is happening all around the world where people are experiencing very radical sudden changes in weather.  That is what we are having, my friends:  climate change!

diabolical steeple, facing the
 smog of Pelosi and leftism
University of California -
Berkeley
     Of course, your humble servant ruminated about this for a few hours.   Then he remembered the arrogant professors who came from the Planet Berkeley to give the geography department at Louisiana State University their marching orders back in the 1970s.   "We are all going to go with global cooling in order to hasten gaining control of American industry!" was their equivalent to "The British are coming!"   That was their new replacement  for the anti-war, anti-Vietnam Invasion cause, they proudly pronounced.
     So El Gringo Viejo just could not help himself.  He joined the pages of the deranged and forlorn (Letters to the Editor), where he had not been for over forty years, and reached out to touch anyone.

GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DEBATED:
     With reference to the January 21st letter on "Climate change" from Charlie Rike, I was unable to determine if it was written as sarcasm, cynicism, or sincerity.  Though we are not "neo-con" nor "far-right", we are closely associated with such people.  Their opinions and conclusions are sturdier and more accurate than those who follow fad science.
     My great-grandfather had a small hacienda in Vera Cruz State of Mexico.  It was west of Tuxpan.  During the decade of the 1890s, three devastating freezes destroyed most of his mango, banana, coffee, and other plantings.
     In those days, there was a man, Agustin Salinas, who would become the mayordomo of my parents' agricultural and grove-care enterprise north of McAllen.  This elderly man remembered the great snow of 1876 in Mier, Tamaulipas, and brought photographs to show us.  He spoke of the time in the 1890s when he and his family took their horses across the Rio Alamo and Rio Grande for a Christmas visit in Salinen~o, Texas.  He said that the horses' hooves did not become wet.  Why?  Because both rivers were frozen solid.
     Great and sudden climactic events?  The hurricane of 1933 caused the Rio Grande to run almost 100 miles wide at its mouth.  My father was in the Ist Division, 12th Regiment, Headquarters Squadron of the United States Army mounted cavalry at Fort Brown (Brownsville) at that time.  He knew that storm personally.
    As far as the other writer's astonishment to find a thermometer reading of 36 degrees (F) in the Valley, in my lifetime we have had brushes with single digits, but certainly it was so bad in 1949, that even at two years old, my memories carry forward to the entire family sleeping around the fireplace at our home on what would later become Nolana Boulevard and 10th Street.   To re-enforce that set of memories, we did it again in 1951 - an episode that essentially wiped out all of the area's citrus industry.

     Even while this was going on, we endured the drought of the early 1950s, when 9 inches of rain was recorded over a nearly three year period.  For the Lower Rio Grande Valley, that drought was broken by Hurricane Alice, which dumped  almost two feet of rain in the Del Rio, Texas area and thereby filled the newly built and dedicated Falcon International Reservoir.

     Were these climactic events?
      Let us consider four days of continuous below-freezing temperatures in January, 1962.  It was so cold that the girls at McAllen High School were allowed to wear pants to school - as long as they were also wearing a skirt over the pants.   Also, consider the rains brought by Hurricane Beulah, when the Sierra Madres, near Monterrey, picked up 50 inches  (more in some places) in 1967 and flooded much of the Valley, over 125 miles away.
     And, what about the brutal Christmas freezes of  1983 and 1989 when water pipes burst throughout the Valley.   This is not to mention the February, 1988 event in Saltillo, Coahuila when my touring company had a group trapped in that fine city where the temperature was 17 (F), and we had an equal number of inches of snow.   We made it out after two days, thanks to the efforts of the Mexican Army.   I was there.
     Finally remember the White Christmas of 2004.  We drove from McAllen to Round Rock, the first 200 miles in a white wonderland of 5 t0 13 inches of snow.

     So, please!   Suffer me not the fools.  Climate change politics is another way to ship the money of Americans to corrupt politicians throughout the world to address both a tempest in a teapot and much ado about nothing.   Thank you for your time and attention.

Oddities and Derangements

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee:
 "Obama has secured the border"
(all credit for this article devolves upon Morgan
 Chalfant, staff writer for Red Alert Politics.)

Sheila Jackson Lee

     Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.) — one of GQ’s “craziest politicians” — said Wednesday that President Obama has secured the nation’s border.
     Speaking at Homeland Security committee markup, Jackson Lee argued that a House border security bill would “militarize the nation” and that such legislation is unnecessary, as reports the Daily Caller.
“The president has spent $108 billion on border security, and we have been successful,” the Texas Democrat alleged. “Oh we’ve had our moments, but we have been successful.”
During 2014, tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors came over the Southern border illegally, exploiting the insecurity of the border. Though Republicans called on Obama to enforce the border, he did little to do so — and even refused to visit the border when on a trip to Texas.
      However, Jackson Lee diminished last summer’s border crisis.   “I know we had a disagreement,” she said of Republicans who criticized Obama for inviting immigrant children to flood the border with his 2012 executive action.
     Jackson Lee insisted that the border control agents succeeded in managing the border and the young immigrants during the crisis. “They had operational control,” she claimed.
