Those Who Betrayed Got Rich

July 2010

William K. Black, professor of economics at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, explained back in July what the Finance Reform Bill means to us. The President signed it into law shortly after this interview.

Black says the bill has loopholes for derivatives trading and that the rating agencies are set up by Wall Street to be grossly inaccurate.

Bodies Still at Scene after Arizona Mass Shooting

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D) was shot through the brain at point blank range but is expected to live, although the damage is grievous. She was outside a Safeway at a shopping mall hosting a political gathering for her constituents.

Her aide, Arizona's top federal judge, a nine-year-old girl and three others are dead. The 22-year-old gunman was tackled during his shooting spree and is now in police custody, where he is said to be cooperating somewhat. Thirteen people, including Giffords, were wounded.

Anderson Cooper Interviews Dr. Andrew Wakefield

Andrew Wakefield has been accused of "elaborate fraud" in a study published in the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal) years ago. Investigative journalist Brian Deer, who figures prominently in this story, is said to have spent seven years investigating the Wakefield study.

An unfriendly Anderson Cooper, who has read at least some of the Deer articles, rather than Wakefield's much longer book (understandable, there's only so much time, and this is a breaking story) interviews Wakefield. When Wakefield keeps saying that the information backing up what he says is in his book and finally lifts a copy for us viewers to see, Cooper gets downright rude by saying, "Sir, I'm not here to have you pitch your book, I'm here to have you answer questions."

Wakefield, a former surgeon and medical researcher, is the son of medical doctors: a neurologist and a general practitioner.

The MMR vaccine is probably quite the money maker since at least some public schools and colleges in the U.S., and quite possibly virtually all, require their students to have the shot in order to attend school, whether their parents or the students themselves like it or not. Hawaii is no exception.

The fed/state's judgment overrides the individual's own judgment about what's best for their children or their one and only body in this life? What could be more diabolical? And this is the freest country on earth?

A 1944 Special Mission to Hitler's Hometown

John Droz, Sr., May 1945

Toward the end of his long life, John Droz, Sr., a B-24 navigator during World War II, recalled a mysterious special one-plane bombing run to Hitler's hometown on a day history says he was there. John and his fellow crew members weren't told at the time about Hitler or what the flight was expected to accomplish beyond a successful and accurate bombing of the objective. The Air Force continues to be mum on this particular flight.

by John Droz, Sr., September 3, 1917 - April 9, 2009

It was an early morning call. I was to personally visit with my base commander. Worried that it was bad news from home, I dressed quickly but carefully and actually ran to headquarters, which was past our olive grove at the end of a long runway.

The command office of the 449th Bomb Group was a place I had visited infrequently. It was in a repaired part of a dirigible hangar that had served the Italian Air Force until it had been bombed to partial destruction by our air group who had been stationed in Northern Africa until about 10 months ago. Then the 449th group took over this base and remodeled some of the buildings.

When I was put “at ease” by my commanding officer, he explained the reason I was summoned. “We are about to fly a special mission. We would like you to be the navigator! However, because of the nature of this enterprise, there is great danger. The circumstances pose a special risk. We are asking you to volunteer. You can refuse if you desire, but I believe you are the navigator we want. Before you accept, I want to share more details of the flight:

#1. This is a secret mission and no others must know about it.
#2 The entire crew will officially be volunteers.
#3. You will fly alone, one B-24, no fighter escort, no other planes.
#4. You will fly without radar or radio directions.
#5. You will fly at approximately 3000’ (rather than 25-30,000) adjusting for mountains. You will be underneath German radar.
#6. This will count for 2 regular missions towards your total need of 50 to complete your tour of duty.”

Being young and eager, I, of course, said, “Yes, Sir.”

The mission was to leave the next morning at daybreak. The entire crew would be handpicked — selected as the best — then asked to volunteer.

As I arrived for the early morning briefing, I met my crew for the first time. Amazingly, the pilot was the base commander!

My instructions were to get the plane to a railyard at Linz, Austria. There was no usual alternate target. The bombardier would take over at that point and direct the bombs to the train cars on the main track. We would be very low so dropping the bombs would be dangerous to us if not done exactly right.

We prepared the plane for take-off in heavy, low-cloud cover. We were to fly north up the Adriatic Sea, directly over Venice and to approach our target, which was a small town, from the north.

The hand of God was with me so that we arrived at the target with little problem even though the sky was heavily clouded the entire trip. As we approached the target, the clouds cleared and we had a direct hit of which we took pictures.

The work completed with no trouble, we headed back to the base.

We were in solid low clouds the entire way. I directed the pilot due south and because of our low level, we received little or no flack. I had to basically guess our position as to when we should turn directly west. When the time arrived to make this 90-degree turn I was scanning the clouds very nervously. Suddenly, the clouds cleared and I recognized where we were by sighting a familiar river and bay on the Czechoslovakian coastline.

I conveyed the correction to the pilot and in about 15 minutes we were over our home air base.

We were greeted by a huge welcoming party of the rest of our comrades. My commander had me stand on a table and all raised their glasses as he introduced me as the “best navigator in the 15th Air Force.”

It was a moment I shall never forget or expect to repeat. Although the compliment was fine, it was far from true.

One week later, the commanding general of our Air Force presented the Distinguished Flying Cross to me and the bombardier for our work on this special mysterious flight.

It was not until about 60 years later that I began to puzzle about this episode. I am a slow thinker — sometimes. Why was it so special? Low level, picked crew, secret, mysterious target? Why was I given a special award — as I had completed many more difficult and scary flights in my career. I asked the Air Force these questions, searched the records that they allowed me to see. They showed no record of this flight. If I had not been honored with this award — which stated the date of the flight, April 19, 1944, I would have thought I was dreaming.

My own research has produced what I discern to be the truth:

Adolph Hitler had planned on conquering the world. In his mind, he had decided to have three great cities — reasonably close to each other — Berlin, Vienna and Linz.

Tiny Linz was closeby his birthplace. According to Mein Kampf, he considered it his birthplace. He had a desire to memorialize this town and make it world famous. He also wanted to increase its size to that of Berlin. He had commanded an outstanding architect to design this new great city. This man had been building a scale model for several years. Now it was finished, and ready to start building.

He and Hitler were to meet in Linz on April 19, 1944, according to historical accounts. Both were to arrive by train at the Linz railyard. I believe that was the secret purpose of our flight – "to kill the Fuehrer." However, history says Hitler died in a bunker in Berlin in 1944. Did he fail to show up the day of our mission? Did we miss with our bombs? Did he really die in Berlin?

Why the Air Corps refuses to report the flight record, we will never know. It is astounding that the Air Force will not reveal the facts 64 years later! Was it a case of an agreement between the U.S. and Russia? I do not expect that I will ever have an answer. Who really cares? At that time, the world was in a terrible state. Today veterans from that era are dying at about 1,000 per day in our country alone.

Let those of us who were alive then give thanks that we won — “whatever we won” — because a different ending could have been much worse. So many gave their limbs or lives. May God forgive us all!

Let the Games Begin!

It is a new year and we have a new Congress taking office. The Republicans have solid control of the House of Representatives while the Democrats still have control of the Senate, but without a filibuster proof majority. The battle lines are already being joined and it is imperative that the American citizens who fought for the election of solid conservatives continue to pay attention to what is happening in Congress and let our Senators and Representatives, both Democrat and Republican, know that we are watching them.

We made our priorities known through the election and now we need to make sure that Congress does what we demanded.

1. Congress must put the brakes on the out of control federal spending that has already pushed our deficit over the 14 trillion dollar mark. If it keeps climbing at the current rate our economy will likely collapse before the 2012 elections ever take place.

2. While repeal of Obamacare can’t be done with the Democrats in control of the Senate and Obama having veto power, the Republicans can began the systematic dismantling of the law by refusing to fund much of it including the over 138 new agencies that it created.

3. Congress must also take a strong stand against the attempts by Obama to bypass Congress and implement his radical agenda by using Executive Orders and regulations issued by agencies such as the FCC and the EPA. This is clearly unconstitutional and it may be necessary for some members of Congress to stand up and file suit against the Obama administration.

4. Congress must also reverse some of these agency actions like those of the EPA implementing provisions of the Cap and Trade bill that Congress refused to pass, and the actions of the FCC taking federal government control of the Internet.

5. It is also imperative that the new Congress take action to force Obama to open up more areas, both on and offshore, to domestic oil drilling and production. Under the current administration policies we will continue to have to get most of our oil from places like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. We will also see gasoline prices continue to rise and more jobs will be lost because of the lack of domestic production.

These are just some of the areas where Congress must act and we must be more vigilant than ever. In addition, I have recently been discussing on my radio show other areas where we can start to make a big difference. In addition to the devastating defeats suffered by the progressives in Congress, they also took a beating in the state and local elections in many areas of the country. Republicans gained 650 legislative seats and now have control of more state legislatures than they have in 80 years.

They also took control of many governorships and as a result, state governments including states such as Pennsylvania, Texas, Nebraska, and Virginia are preparing to fight the Federal government on a number of fronts. These include legal challenges to Obamacare and EPA regulations, as well as passing new state laws to control illegal immigration.

We can make a big difference in these state and local battlegrounds because one vote counts more on the local level. People are often asking me how they can make a difference and this is one the most important ways. It’s time for the states to assert the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and fight the leftists who would relegate the states to serfdoms ruled by the elitists in Washington. We must support these efforts.

We can also help by taking back control of local school boards and city councils from the far left. The battle for freedom at every level can’t stop now and I will continue to monitor what is happening in Washington. However, I will need you to keep me abreast of what is occurring in your states and cities. That way I can inform other people of what is working and what is not. Just let me know by placing posts on the blog or emailing me at

I will also be devoting more time than ever to these endeavors and if you can further help by donating to support my blog I will be very grateful. The next two years are critical to the future of our nation. Let’s keep up the good fight.
