Sleep in peace my brother, my sister.
You have sacrificed all for the Country
you love.

We who remain behind enjoy the
freedoms you so valiantly fought to preserve.

We stand together this venerable day
to salute you, to honor you for the precious gift
of freedom.

Be assured your dedication to America will
never be forgotten.

Monuments rise up to dedicated your courage,
fortitude and fidelity to duty. To remind us that the very things we cherish and love come not freely.

For those who came home we weep for our lost, but stand firm in our belief that they did not perish in vain.

I take this opportunity to salute them one and all.

To my shipmates with whom I served (1961-1963) aboard
the U.S.S. ETHAN ALLEN (SSBN, 608), I offer a special salute.

God bless them all.
Howard W. Hawkins

P.S. Please visit the Ethan Allen Website! There you will see the magnificent submarine that Howard and I were honored to serve aboard.

Goodbye B. B. King: “The Thrill Is Gone”

May 18, 2015

Goodbye B. B. King: “The Thrill Is Gone”

America has lost a great original blues guitar virtuoso.

I am so sorry to see him go.

Recently the news has been so bad in virtually every category, that it is just very hard to take.

A true American patriot cannot help but feel blue.

And now B. B. King is dead.

Listening to him play and sing “the blues” is a magical and counter-intuitive experience.

Somehow, just watching and listening to B. B. King’s blues performances can work to “chase those blues away”.

Take some time to visit one of America’s greatest music therapists.

And when this is one over, watch some of his other masterful performances right here!

A Reality-Based Conversation About Race

May 12, 2015

A Reality-Based Conversation About Race

You can count on Bill O’Reilly to tell-it like it is. So it is with his hard hitting almost accurate portrayal of the tragedy of a large segment of American Black Culture.

Please watch the following video and then ask yourself what O’Reilly has missed?

The hint is to be found in the Behavioral Analytic technical term “Metacontingency”, which I will explain after the following video.


Simply put: A Metacontingency comprises a culture’s rules, rewards and punishment systems and their measurable effects upon its population’s behavior patterns.

What almost everyone continues to miss is that the resolution of America’s behavioral problems ,among all races, will largely derive from replacing America’s pathogenic social and welfare system with one that rewards families who remain together, individuals who get educations and marketable skills, who gain employment and remain employed, who do not have babies out-of-wedlock, who avoid drugs, crimes, and other bad behaviors.

Of course there are other important matters, like teaching citizenship, ethics and moral behavior to our youth, as well as encouraging various pro-social religious teachings.

In my view, any culture that fails in these basic duties will fail to remain a viable social enterprise.

Wake-up America!

Here’s The Real Freddy Gray Story!

May 5, 2015

Here’s The Real Freddy Gray Story!

Once again we see the Obama Administration, and its progressive media, attack one of America’s pillars of stability with lies and distortions of reality.

Abuse of minorities by the police have certainly occurred in modern times, in isolated incidences, by a  very small minority of cops. There is no evidence that this is a common and wide-spread phenomenon.

Where the abuse of police powers occurs, the offenders must be prosecuted. If they are guilty, they must be punished under the law.

Trumping-up false allegations of  abuse of minorities is a standard revolutionary practice designed to destabilize a society and pave the way for a political take-over, normally socialistic or communistic in nature.

However, in the 21st century, those in competition for the take-over of America are the anarchists, progressive/socialists, communists, and radical Islam, I.E., “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”, as the old saying goes. There now exists a consortium of alien forces intent upon the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

When asked what kind of government our Founding Fathers had created for us, Benjamin Franklin is quoted as saying: “A Republic if you can keep it”.

America is once again in great peril.

Here is only the latest bogus reason to “transform” America’s formerly State and local police agencies into a Nationalized police force capable of imposing Federal dictatorial control of our population.

Freddy, needed to be stopped and questioned. The arresting police were all black, by report. An investigation will determine their guilt or innocence.

The current race riots are a purposeful strategy designed to destabilize America and stimulate a race war. 

Where is the evidence to the contrary?

Obama and Sharpton: Nationalize America’s Police!

May 1, 2015

Obama and Sharpton: Nationalize America’s Police!

Wake-up America, Obama and his minions are still working to transform America into a socialist nation powerfully regulated by Federal Authority. To do this they need greater control of the population. They need a coordinated and loyal nationalized police force that is under the control of the Federal Government!

Do you think this a product of paranoid thinking? You are not paranoid if they are really out to get ya.

In the wake of recent race riots, stimulated from demonstrations to destructive riots by outside professional agitators,  this matter has surfaced once again. You can believe that this concerted effort, over a long period of time is no accident and it is no after-thought. It is part of a long-established grand plan.

It is important that you watch both of the video segments below.

Most American’s will not know what hit them, if it finally does.

Race War In America?

April 30, 2015

Race War In America?

The following video is not the first time the Black Panther’s have threatened violence, but it now comes at a time of race riots spreading across America’s cities. It is now a serious threat.

I fear that this is what America gets for implementing generations of welfare systems that have rewarded families for not having a father in the home, for not working, for not getting an education, for engaging in illegal activities, abusing drugs and alcohol, and for generally behaving in irresponsible ways.

Although this radical liberal reward system has garnered votes for Democrats and enslaved more and more citizens of all races in America, it has disproportionately damaged our black population.

Bill O’Reilly and others say that the problem is a “lack of individual responsibility”. They miss the fact that it is the liberal Welfare State that has destroyed the individual responsibility of its recipients. America has taught increasing numbers of its children to grow to be irresponsibly dependent upon governmental largess  (i.e., tax payer funding)—and therefor unable to escape poverty. Then we blame them for having learned to be  irresponsible, dependent, uneducated and unsocialized to middle class standards.

If we reward single parenting, serial pregnancies (with different abandoning men), unemployment, ignorance and irresponsibility. That is exactly what our culture will see increase amongst its citizenry.

Eventually, the millions who are so afflicted by such cultural/political reward systems become frustrated, angry, aggressive and they will attack and blame the hand that has enslaved them with paltry and diminishing rewards. This is perfectly predictable.

The the ever-present graphic news reports of these burgeoning race-riots, as-well-as social media, are potent catalysts for their increasing frequency and intensity.

All of this at a time when countless other internal and external stressors threaten to destroy our Constitutional Republic.

Now comes the following:

God help us!

But, the Lord helps those who help themselves.

Wake-up America! Vote for a return to conservative Judeo/Christian values, cultural designs, school vouchers, rewards for entrepreneurship and training-work-fare (not traditional welfare) for those trapped in poverty.

There is much more that can be done to reward individual initiative and to begin to reverse America’s social/cultural decay. It is not rocket science. It is all humane things that are the  opposite of flood of liberal/progressive reward systems, namely socialism, that are now completely  enveloping America.

P.S., It is time for me to take a long walk in the woods. I need a break and I will be off-line for a little while.


Agnostic On Man-Made Global Warming

April 26, 2015

Agnostic On Man Made Climate Change

There are both pragmatic and spiritual reasons not to pollute our precious Planet Earth.

I subscribe to all of them and urge that we do our best to “give a hoot-don’t pollute!”, as the old saying goes.

However, on the matter of significant man-made Global Warming, I remain strongly agnostic.

As you probably know, global temperatures have vacillated throughout scientifically recoverable history. A great many interacting variables have always influenced temperatures around the world and scientists still do not fully understand this complex, perhaps self-regulating, natural phenomenon.

The models that scientists use to predict future global temperatures contain many statistical assumptions capable of yielding different predicted outcomes. Change an assumption and the “outcome” changes.

While it is reasonable to assume that man-made pollution has contributed a new variable to this mix, it is not reasonable to assume that this will doom humanity in the foreseeable future. 

Furthermore, it is not reasonable that we damage our economy, speed our cultural decline, and thereby undermine our significant influence among the nations of the world…all in a hysterical self-sacrifice at the politicized altar to the “Religion” of Global Warming.

Do not be fooled. Man-Made Global Warming is a powerful tool used by the radical left, socialist-progressives, and the one-world government bunch to further their anti-democratic totalitarian political agenda.

As you should know by now, the truth cannot be found amongst these pathological liars.

Please see this case-in-point.

ISIS Is In America!

ISIS Is In America!

This should come as no surprise.

Our past presidents have all been aware of the dangers that our open borders pose to America. Yet, they have not acted to close and guard them effectively.

So now, the millions of Mexican Illegals debilitating America will be trumped by the Islamic terrorists sneaking in from the same place to kill us.

I fear that we are in for some very hard times.

Perhaps the Second Amendment will save us… our federal government has thrown us to the wolves.

Women In Front-Line Combat: No!

April 24, 2015

Women In Front-Line Combat: No!

President Obama has found yet another way to weaken America’s Military combat effectiveness.

I could chalk-it-up to Obama’s misguided sense of “fairness and equality”,  if I did not understand that virtually every move he has made has resulted in damage to America’s viability as a first world power.

I cannot, and I will not, watch Obama bat-a-thousand with moves that deepen America’s cultural, social, political, military, geopolitical, economic and legal decline…and then assume that his motivation is some form of misguided altruism.

His attacks upon America’s Military have been monumental. Please search my blogs under “Obama and Military” for a fuller understanding of my concerns.

A recent report exposes Obama’s orders to America’s Marine Corps to lower their physical performance standards in order to admit women to combat positions.

The following is an authoritative report that former Navy Chief Bosun’s Mate Lee Hornack sent to his friends and associates.

After this report is an open letter about this article, and the obvious tragic consequences that will result from women in front-line combat. This letter is written by a former combat veteran and military officer.

America: You had better listen-up!

 Now, consider Col. Alsbro’s response to this article.


  I’ve written several editorials about why women should not be on the front lines in ground combat.  The average soldier is carrying 80-125 lbs of gear on their back.  There is no way that a female soldier would be able to carry that soldier.  How would you like to be told that your son died in combat because there was no one able to carry him to safety.  The machine gun still weighs 50 lbs.  There are two machine guns in an infantry squad.  In a ground assault if the machine gunner is hit, there is no female that can pick that weapon up and continue with it.  Thus the ground attack will probably fail.
Why is it that in the Army fitness test, the 20-year-old female can do 42 push ups and max the test and the male has to do 72 push ups to max it?  The same with the 2 mile run.  The male has to run the two miles in 12 min to max it and the female can do it in 15 min and max it. I taught the weight lifting class at Lake Michigan College for 20 years.  I NEVER had a female student who could bench press their weight, i.e., if they weighed 150 lbs they could not lift 150 lbs on the machine, whereas most males had no trouble lifting their weight and by the end of the semester most could lift the stack, or 300 lbs.  IT IS PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE FEMALE TO PERFORM GROUND COMBAT!  I would never question their courage, but I will go to my grave believing that the female has no business in being in the foxhole!
Sorry for the sermon but this e-mail from Lee really hit a sore spot as I spent 5 years in the Infantry and I would not want to go into hand to hand combat with females!

The Truth About The Crusades

April 22, 2015

The Truth About The Crusades

Some may wonder if the following presentation by a Catholic organization is just their propaganda about the epoch war between the Christians and the Muslims.

I have read enough about this history to know that a great percentage of America’s citizens have no idea about the truth about the Christian Crusades.

I have viewed the video below and found that its main elements comport with what I have learned from various authoritative historical resources.

Nothing has changed to this very day. The messianic Islamic killers are still murdering thousands of innocent people, destroying their religious  artifacts and taking control of their lands .

All of this, while the world does nothing.

The Crusades have never ended.

Wake-Up America!
