Megyn Kelly takes Hanoi Jane down a notch


Hanoi Jane has a beef with Megyn Kelly. It started when Fonda appeared on Megyn’s show last year and Megyn asked Fonda about her plastic surgery. Megyn noted she looked good and it wasn’t asked with malicious intent, in my opinion.
Hanoi Jane didn’t appreciate the question and has been whining about Megyn for months. On Monday, Megyn had some choice words for the traitor.
The part where Megyn puts Hanoi Jane in her place begins at the 1:29 mark.
Couldn’t have said it better myself!

Principal at private school says Trump presidency is ‘more troubling’ than 9/11

Steve Nelson: A serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome


From NY Post: The principal at a progressive Manhattan private school told parents in an email last week that the Trump presidency was more troubling than Vietnam, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the September 11 attacks and Watergate, The Post has learned.
Steve Nelson’s scorching missive managed to roil several parents at the $46,000 per year Calhoun School – no small feat considering the Upper West Side bastion’s blaring liberal bent. “It was inappropriate, it was offensive, it was condescending,” said one parent. “This is a liberal school. So I guess that’s the approach. But this was too much. To compare this to 9-11 – I think that’s just too much.”
Nelson emailed a series of anguished ruminations on Donald Trump’s ascent to Calhoun parents, simultaneously calling for non-partisanship while skewering the billionaire’s policies.
In a message sent last week, Nelson, who also teaches journalism at the pre-K through 12 campus, noted his intimate familiarity with several recent catastrophes – including 9-11. “I watched soot-covered New Yorkers grimly trudging north on West End Avenue on September 11, 2001,” Nelson wrote. “I am more troubled now.”
Elsewhere in the lengthy missive, Nelson acknowledged the theoretical need to avoid political bias in a school environment. “One in my position must be scrupulous in avoiding partisanship,” he said. But he later asserted in the same message that “there are matters that transcend political diversity.”
“The ways in which equity and equality are now threatened are deeply troubling, including the constitutionally suspect and arguably discriminatory efforts to restrict or prohibit immigration based on religion and/or ethnicity,” he wrote.
Another parent told The Post Wednesday that she wasn’t a Trump zealot but was still made uncomfortable by the outward display of political allegiance. “I just think this went too far,” she said. “I understand that this is a progressive school, but at a certain point you have to have some restraint.”
Nelson, who has been at the school for two decades and plans to retire this year, staunchly stood by his actions Wednesday. “I’ve been at the school for 19 years and there was not a message that got a more positive response than this one,” he said. “If this upset a few people I understand. But you can’t make everyone happy all the time.”
“I not only stand by the statement but I wouldn’t mind it being published in full,” he said. “One aspect of a progressive school is that we’re open to dissent and dialogue about everything,” he said. “I would discuss this with the families if they chose to come in and chat with me.”
But a parent speculated that failing to denounce Trump with sufficient vigor would lead to immediate leper status in key Calhoun social circles. “Are you kidding me?” she said. “Here? You wouldn’t be able to show your face.”
Students at the West End Ave. school – which counts actor Ben Stiller and comedian Jordan Peele as graduates – eagerly backed their principal.
“You do know we go to a progressive school?” one male student, 16, told a reporter Wednesday. “They want kids informed on issues like executives orders. The day after the election we had an emergency assembly to talk about our feelings and what happened. Like in history class we talk about how the world was in the 1930s then and compare it to Trump. Similar economics and racial issues as in the 1930s.”
“My history teacher always finds a way to connect everything to Trump,” said a 15-year-old female student. “He will talk about ancient leaders destroying an empire then mentions Trump.”
“There are discussions between students, I mean we go to a pretty progressive school,” said a male student. “We are all in an agreement we don’t like Trump.”
Founded in 1896, Calhoun has an enrollment of 730 kids and prides itself on tackling thorny issues like racism head on. As part of a 2012 initiative called “Deconstructing Racism,” the school commissioned a documentary entitled “I’m Not Racist…Am I?”
A Calhoun parent said she was surprised by the objections to Nelson’s approach. “You know what you’re getting here,” she said. “And we’re proud of that.”

Hanoi Jane to build shrine of herself

jane fonda memorial wall
NY Post: Even Jane Fonda needs a reminder of her fabulousness. At 77, the actress is building a “shrine” to herself that she hopes will boost her recently faltering confidence.
Kerry & Hanoi Jane
“I’ve found myself backsliding a bit of late in terms of where my thoughts have tended to reside (not always with the generosity of vision I wish for) and my confidence has been iffy for the past four months,” the stunning star traitor wrote in a blog post Sunday, her 77th birthday.
“So, while meditating today an idea came to me: I’m going to create a shrine to myself – or, at least, the self I wish to be, the self who began to manifest when I was a young girl before the s–t hit the fan,” she continued.
hanoi2
The “shrine” will be a small place filled with items that remind Fonda of “the qualities that represent my best self.” So far, she plans to include a school report from the fourth grade. She’ll spend the new year collecting objects and symbols that “remind me that I’m brave.” “I’ve been forgetting that,” she revealed.
hanoi jane
“I will put a special candle on the shrine and burn sandalwood and put some special Native American artifacts that I’ve treasured over the years in honor of the Mohawk Nation where my Fonda ancestors built their homestead,” she added.
The “This Is Where I Leave You” star celebrated her birthday at a dinner with boyfriend Richard Perry, who is battling Parkinson’s disease, brother Peter Fonda and Peter’s wife, Parky.
In June, Fonda received the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, where she was feted by fellow A-listers Meryl Streep, Sally Field and Sandra Bullock.

I can’t write what I really want to about this narcissistic traitor. I leave you with this:

“War hero” John McCain suppresses information on America’s still-missing POWs

POWs in Vietnam

I know Conservatives who are critical of Senator John McCain’s (R-Arizona) politics but nevertheless still hold an admiration and respect for McCain for having been a prisoner of war (POW) in the Vietnam War. Indeed, McCain successfully parlayed his years as a POW into potent political capital as a war hero and patriot.

It is therefore extremely important that the truth be told about McCain’s betrayal of POWs.

Sydney Schanberg is an award-winning (including a Pulitzer) long-time journalist best known for his book, The Death and Life of Dith Pran, on which the 1984 Academy Award-winning movie “The Killing Fields” was based.

In the following explosive article for The American Conservative, Schanberg uncovers the role McCain had played in suppressing information about what happened to American soldiers missing in action in Vietnam. The article is long, so please pace yourself. Or you can watch this video:

The contempt U.S. elites have for our soldiers

Exhibit A: 

Kerry flicks his snake tongue

On October 30, 2006, then Senator John Kerry was a headline speaker at a campaign rally being held for Democratic California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, California. Speaking to an audience composed mainly of college students, Kerry said, beginning at the 0:17 mark:

“We’re here to talk about education, and I want to say something. Well, education … If you make the most of it, study hard, do your homework and make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you can get stuck in Iraq.

Kerry almost became president and commander in chief. He is now Obama’s minion as U.S. Secretary of State.

Exhibit B:

According to the blog Jesus Is Savior, then Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is quoted in Kiss the Boys Goodbye as saying, “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
Kissinger was National Security Advisor (1969-1975), then concurrently Secretary of State (1973-1977) in the Nixon and Ford administrations, after which he ran his lucrative international consulting firm, Kissinger Associates.
Although the POWs he abandoned no doubt are long dead, Kissinger still lives. He is 90 years old.

Kiss the Boys Goodbye is the bestselling exposé of a major political scandal by two award-winning journalists Monica Jensen-Stevenson and William H. Stevenson. The book reveals heartbreaking evidence of American POWs abandoned in Vietnam, of official obstruction and missing files, censored testimony and thinly veiled threats from government sources. Monica had been a producer at CBS’s Sixty Minutes for 5 years.

Here are screenshots I took from Amazon’s free sample of Kiss the Boys Goodbye — on the duplicity of Kissinger and the U.S. government:

Jane Fonda’s F-You to America

According to Wikipedia, in law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more serious acts of betrayal of one’s nation. Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as a “citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” Treason is the only crime that is specifically defined in the United States Constitution. Article III, Section 3 specifies that “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Fonda visited Hanoi in July 1972. In North Vietnam, she was photographed seated on an anti-aircraft battery– the kind that was used by the VietCong to shoot down U.S. military aircraft.

During her trip, Fonda made ten radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military leaders as “war criminals”. When POWs returning to the United States recounted their having been tortured, Fonda called them “hypocrites and liars” because “These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved.” In 1973, Fonda told The New York Times that although “I’m quite sure that there were incidents of torture … but the pilots who were saying it was the policy of the Vietnamese and that it was systematic, I believe that’s a lie.” Then she stated that the POWs were “military careerists and professional killers” who are “trying to make themselves look self-righteous, but they are war criminals according to the law”. [Source: Wikipedia]

In her 2005 autobiography, Fonda writes that she was “manipulated” into sitting on the battery. In an entry at her official website, Fonda further explained: “It happened on my last day in Hanoi. I was exhausted and an emotional wreck after the 2-week visit.”

Lies!!!!!

Before, during, and after her Hanoi trip, Jane Fonda was in contact with
a North Vietnamese intelligence officer. That is not the behavior of
someone who was “manipulated.” (See “Jane Fonda & her North Vietnamese Intelligence Officer,” Aug. 21, 2011.)

Despite occasional “apologies” for her 1972 treason, Jane Fonda is utterly unrepentant.

How do I know?

Because she actually chose to wear a “Hanoi Jane” T-shirt in a promotional video for her latest movie, The Butler, in which she plays Nancy Reagan. To see the promotional video, go here.

Here’s a screenshot I took from the video:

Hanoi Jane

That’s her “F*CK YOU” message to the U.S. soldiers who fought and died in the Vietnam War.

That’s her “F*CK YOU” message to all Americans.

Hanoi Jane, for what you did, you should have been tried for TREASON — if President Nixon and the Congress of 1972 had any balls.

I didn’t see The Butler in the movie theater, and I most certainly will not watch it even if a TV network broadcasts it for free.

A Hero to Remember

nemo

Sentry Dog Nemo

“K-9 Hero of Tan Son Nhut”

VSPA.com: Nemo was whelped in October 1962. He was procured by the Air Force when he was one and a half years old. After completing an 8-week training course, he was assigned to Fairchild AFB, Washing, for duty with the Strategic Air Command. In January 1966, Nemo and his handler Airman Leonard Bryant, Jr., were transferred to the Republic of South Vietnam with a large group of other sentry dog teams. Airman Robert A. Thorneburg was assigned as Nemo’s handler in July 1966.

In the predawn hours of 4 December 1966, Tan Son Nhut Air Base was attacked by a large force of Viet Cong commando raiders who used a single avenue of approach through friendly force positions outside the base perimeter. Once inside the base, the raiders divided into small groups to attack their targets. Several sentry dog teams stationed on preventive perimeter posts gave the initial alert and warning almost simultaneously. As a result of this early warning, security forces of the 377th Air Police Squadron successfully repelled the attack, minimizing damage to aircraft and facilities. 

Although wounded, one dog handler maintained contact with the enemy and notified Central Security Control of their location and direction of travel. Two security policemen in a machine gun bunker were ready and waiting as the VC approached the main aircraft parking ramp. In a few seconds they stopped the enemy, killing all thirteen of the attackers. Security forces rapidly deployed around the perimeter and prevented numerous infiltrators from escaping, forcing them to hide in a Vietnamese graveyard, dense vegetation and wells. Search patrols believed that all remaining VC were killed or captured the following morning. 

Unfortunately, supervisors did not include dog teams in those daylight patrols, so just before total darkness when Airman Thorneburg and Nemo were posted, Nemo alerted and was released to attack the VC who had evaded earlier detection. Both handler and dog were wounded, but not before killing at least one VC. Nemo’s injuries included the loss of one eye. A sweep of the area by the Quick Reaction Team met with negative results. Using additional sentry dog teams, the security forces located and killed four more VC. A second sweep with the dog teams resulted in discovery of four more VC who were hiding underground. They too were killed.

Nemo was credited with saving his handler’s life and preventing further destruction of life and property. On 23 June 1967, Headquarters, USAF, directed that Nemo be returned to the United States as the first sentry dog officially retired from active service. His permanent retirement kennel is located at the Department of Defense Dog Center, Lackland AFB, Texas. He is frequently taken on tours in the United States to assist the procurement of military working dogs.

Excerpt from Air Force Manual 125-5, Volume II, dated April 28, 1972.  Nemo died from natural causes at the Lackland AFB, Texas on March 15, 1973.

A Soldier comes home

Captain James Johnstone

Captain James Johnstone

Remains of Army captain killed in Vietnam War positively identified 40 years after his plane  crashed

Daily Mail: The remains of a Vietnam-era soldier killed  in the war have been identified, military officials said. They said the remains of Army Capt. James J.  Johnstone of Baton Rouge, Louisiana died in 1966 after his airplane crashed in  nearby Laos.
A spokesperson for the Defense POW/MIA  Missing Personnel Office said they used a molar, along with a  partially-destroyed military ID card to positively identify him.
Johnstone was on a reconnaissance mission in  Attapu Province, Laos, when his plane crashed on November 19, 1966. He was 28 years old.
His adult daughter, Shawn Johnstone, told The Advocate that she couldn’t be more happy that her father’s  remains have been found. ‘I’m a big believer in miracles,’ she said, ‘always have been.’
It was impossible to try and get the human  remains from the crash site, as enemy fighting was thick in Laos in 1966, and a  retrieval mission would have been far too dangerous.
Ms. Johnstone told the paper that the military  had given her a 100-page book detailing the many investigations they had run to try and find her father’s remains.
Following the end of America’s presence in  Vietnam and Laos, officials found that villagers had pillaged the site of the  wreckage, leaving few clues. Ms. Johnstone, 46, told the Advocate that  recently, a villager turned an old American Express card into police there. The card had been her father’s.
Johnstone will be buried in Arlington  National Cemetery next Wednesday and will be given military honors.
Welcome home Capt. Johnstone. Rest in peace.
