For Veterans Day we went to a ceremony at our granddaughter, Britnye's high school. Quite nice. She sings in the chorus. Met an 85-year-old Marine who was at the Inchon Landing and the Chosen Reservoir. Afterwards we joined other Marines at olive Garden for the free meal they offer vets. As we were going in an old Marine headed out came over to us. He was 92. He was on
Guadalcanal as an enlisted man. On Guam, he was told by his Col. that they needed Second Lieutenants, as too many had been killed! "Colonel," he said, "I hate officers. I don't want to be a Lieutenant." "Shut up, Lynch, or you'll be a private tomorrow." So he became an officer. Fought on Okinawa and in Korea, but was kept in the states to train troops for Vietnam. Quite an honor to meet these Marines. ~Bob

Book Recommendation: God's Battalions: The Case for the Crusades by Rodney Stark
This well-researched, well-reasoned and well-written history brings much needed balance to the politicized history that sees all actions in history by Muslims as benign and all actions by Jews and Christians as evil. Stark starts his history of the Crusades not with the First Crusade from Europe to the
Holy Land, but with the long Muslim conquest or attempted conquest of Christian lands. On page 12 he says, "In 570, when Muhammad was born, Christendom stretched from the Middle East all along North Africa and embraced much of Europe. But only eighty years after Muhammad death in 632, a new Muslim empire had displaced Christians from most of the Middle East, all of North Africa, Cyprus, and most of Spain. In another century Sicily, Sardinia, Crete, and southern Italy also came under Muslim rule." He doesn't miss evil acts by the Crusaders, common to all warfare at the time, but juxtaposes them with equally evil slaughter by Muslims and puts both in their historical context. My only quibble is that he ends the book too soon, before the Muslim conquest of the Eastern Roman Empire and Constantinople, parts of the Balkans and attempts twice on Vienna, not to mention the long Muslim effort to subdue Europe by control of the Mediterranean including the Siege of the Knights of St. John in Malta and the defeat of the Muslim fleet at Lepanto, all part of the Islamic jihad "crusade" if you will to destroy Christianity and conquer Europe. The Crusades were Europe's reaction to aggressive Muslim empire building at the point of a sword. They have become politicized talking points to rally the recruits for the next wave of terrorism and suicide bombing, aided by intellectuals and the media who loath the civilization that nurtures them. This book is a must-read for history buffs, and for those who wish to see this put in a more balance historical context.

An expert weighs in on where the war on terror went wrong
Excerpt: Angelo Codevilla is not a household name, unless you’re a student of international affairs and military history. In that world, he's a certified rock star. Born in
Italy in 1943, he immigrated to the United States as a child. He became a U.S. citizen and eventually earned a Ph.D. and began an academic career. In 1977, he joined the U.S. foreign service and quickly moved to Capitol Hill, where he served on the staff of the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence. He was instrumental in the development of President Ronald Reagan’s signature program, the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), which was derided by its detractors as a fantasy, but many historians believe it helped to bring an end to the nuclear arms race the United States had been waging with the Soviet Union for more than 40 years. Codevilla has written more than a dozen books on national defense and statesmanship, some of which are considered classics in their field. I talked with Codevilla about his latest book, To Make and Keep Peace Among Ourselves and with All Nations.

Interesting: Winners and losers from the fourth Republican debate. By Chris Cillizza,
Excerpt: Here are my winners and losers from the night that was: Winners: * Marco Rubio: Rubio's line about welders making more money than philosophy majors will be quoted all over the place in the post-debate analysis. (And, no, it wasn't totally accurate.) Rubio knocked it out of the park when debating military spending and the right role for
America in the world with Rand Paul. He got a meatball of a question when asked by the moderators about Hillary Clinton's résumé as compared with his own; he, unsurprisingly, answered it well and easily. Time and time again, he oozed knowledge while appearing entirely relaxed. ... Trump, as he has in each of the first four debates, stood center stage in Milwaukee on Tuesday night. But for the two-plus hours that the debate ran, Trump felt ancillary to the conversation. When he did get time to speak, he simply repeated his now-familiar lines — we don't win anymore, I have a great company, etc. — and little else. His answers on foreign policy were not good.
Another Take: The primetime debate: Who won, lost and survived. By Jennifer
Post Rubin, Washington
Excerpt: Donald Trump was the big surprise. He at times attempted to present a more serious, subdued demeanor but was booed on several occasions and frankly embarrassed when, for example, after his rant about the Trans-Pacific Partnership and
China, Sen. Rand Paul ( Ky.) pointed out China was not party to the TPP. Jeb Bush likewise ridiculed Trump’s remarks on allowing Russia to fight the Islamic State, which Moscow isn’t actually doing. He even drew boos when he accused Carly Fiorina of “interrupting everybody.” Fiorina managed to needle Trump once again mocking his remark that he’d met Vladimir Putin on “60 Minutes.” (“Although I have met him as well, not in a green room for a show, but in a private meeting,” she icily observed.) ... Sen. Marco Rubio ( Fla.) once again had the strongest performance.
: The Coddling of the American Mind. In the name of emotional well-being, college students are increasingly demanding protection from words and ideas they don’t like. Here’s why that’s disastrous for education—and mental health. Reading
Excerpt: Something strange is happening at
America’s colleges and universities. A movement is arising, undirected and driven largely by students, to scrub campuses clean of words, ideas, and subjects that might cause discomfort or give offense. Last December, Jeannie Suk wrote in an online article for The New Yorker about law students asking her fellow professors at Harvard not to teach rape law—or, in one case, even use the word violate (as in “that violates the law”) lest it cause students distress. In February, Laura Kipnis, a professor at Northwestern University, wrote an essay in The Chronicle of Higher Education describing a new campus politics of sexual paranoia—and was then subjected to a long investigation after students who were offended by the article and by a tweet she’d sent filed Title IX complaints against her. In June, a professor protecting himself with a pseudonym wrote an essay for Vox describing how gingerly he now has to teach.
Excerpt: The looming catastrophe that could befall a nation that no longer respects its most basic freedoms was exposed once again as an acute crisis this week amid the disruptions on the
campus. There, amid vague and poorly substantiated claims of endemic racist antipathy toward African-Americans, students and faculty alike engaged in a protest that regarded the presence of citizen and student journalists as a sinister development. One particularly aggressive faculty member abetted this abuse of public property was even shown calling for “muscle” to remove from the premises one of the student photographers. When asked if she thought this response was justified, the vice president of the Missouri Students Association crystalized the crisis afflicting Western education. “I personally am tired of hearing that first amendment rights protect students when they are creating a hostile and unsafe learning environment for myself and for other students here,” she said. If only this poor soul were an outlier, but anecdotal evidence that Americans are becoming less comfortable with the Constitutional right to free speech is increasingly matched by more scientific support. (There’s good reason to look at what’s going on in University of Missouri America’s college campuses with incredulity, befuddlement, anger, disdain, and repulsion. But what if the leftist temper-tantrum that we’re witnessing is in fact something of a last gasp, a sudden recognition that their long-awaited nirvana is never going to come? Deep down, they must realize that the only real career path for the campus radical is to join some leftist organization in a professional capacity or to stay on campus and attempt to become a professor. Corporate America may pay off an agitator, but they aren’t terribly eager to hire them or give them any real responsibility. The audience for leftist agitprop is pretty limited, while works they see as trigger-inducing, right-wing propaganda, like American Sniper, find large audiences. Sure, leftists have gained tighter and tighter control over the academic world over the past generation, but they’re recognizing obvious limitations on their ability to influence the culture at large from there. They police micro-aggressions while the culture grows coarser. They call for racial justice while the state of black America slips further and further into self-described crisis. --Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt)
Excerpt: Tim Wolfe, the president of the
, is resigning his post, an act of extraordinary cowardice on the part of the university. The University of Missouri is purported to be convulsed by racism. How so? A drunk white student walking down the street used a racial slur in reference to a group of black students; he has been exiled from the campus and probably will be expelled when the disciplinary process comes to its conclusion. Expelling a student for ungentlemanly conduct is the sort of thing that universities probably ought to do more of, but of course punishing the guilty is never enough for the Left. The innocent must be punished as well. ... "When men with souls made of cotton candy wilt in the face of this sort of absurdity, it encourages it." University of Missouri
Kevin D. Williamson: Hysterical Yalies protest a free-speech panel
Excerpt: For the first several years of my life, I thought that “Yale man” was a synonym for “caveman,” because the only references to Yale I’d ever heard were from Thurston Howell III, who greeted displays of barbarism with “Heavens! A Yale man!” I thought of that when the police officer was obliged to carry the shrieking protester out of the venue where he’d come to put a stop to our free-speech discussion.

Satire: Short Film Mocking Social Justice in Education
Worth Subscribing to: Liberal Campuses. By Jonah Goldberg, The Goldberg File
I’ve been saying words to that effect all week, watching higher ed go into full meltdown. Because this “crisis” is 100 percent liberalism’s fault. Sure, sure, you can divvy up the slices of blame in different ways, but those guys tailgating in the parking lot drinking beers and eating bratwurst? Those are the conservatives and libertarians enjoying a day off, because they don’t have to wait in line for even a morsel of blame. I almost feel sorry for those decent, sincere career liberals standing there in the quad as the little Maoists scream in their faces and strip off the suede elbow patches on their tweedy jackets like a lieutenant being busted down to a private. As the kids fit lifelong members of the ACLU with their duncecaps, the poor souls can hear the conservatives hooting and laughing off beyond the fence, throwing nerf footballs and telling jokes at the liberals’ expense. ... Outside of the actual headquarters of the Democratic party itself, no major institution in
America today is more thoroughly run and controlled by the Left than academia. ... Moreover, it’s been like this for generations. It was true when most of these administrators and faculty were born -- they have grown up inside a universe where this fact was simply taken for granted. With the Left given total control of these oases of tolerance and citadels of progressivism, what do we get? We get pampered and coddled students screaming that these institutions are hotbeds of racism, homophobia, sexism, and the rest of the 31 Flavors of Oppression. ("Public education is a socialist monopoly, a real one." -Milton Friedman)

A reported incident of vandalism at Mizzou sparked university-wide protests, a boycott by the school’s 4-5 football team, and eventually the resignation of the university’s president and chancellor. There’s only one problem: no evidence of the alleged incident, in which a poop swastika on the wall of a dormitory restroom was reported, has ever been made publicly available. (Mark Levin was going ballistic on this last night as well as Michael Savage. Levin mentioned no Jews were upset. Apparently, per this article, news of the "poop swastika" was spread by flyers on doors. How factual. But hey, it reminds POTUS of how he got started. I have seen campus unrest in the 60s--profs had notes put on their cars, things tampered with, stolen. One university president resigned over a protest when students wanted to perform a Greek play nude; he had a health condition and opted to have time with his family; there were also politics in play, typical. --Barb. When I was in the Senate, there was a Jewish member who went clinically batty.

The Cultural Revolution Comes to
’s Campuses. By Roger L Simon America
Excerpt: Today’s undergraduates probably know little, if anything, about the cataclysmic movement in
China known as the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. It began in 1966 before all of them (and even a great number of their professors) were born. This massive national crusade, instigated by Chairman Mao Zedong, was intended to create a pure communist man and woman, devoid of the constraints of materialism and personal ambition. It started with the closing of the schools and the re-education of intellectuals and the bourgeoisie and ended up with years of incredible violence, taking millions of lives. The actual statistics are still a state secret, but a recent biography of Mao states “at least 3 million people died violent deaths and post-Mao leaders acknowledged that 100 million people, one-ninth of the entire population, suffered in one way or another.”

Why aren’t Hillary Clinton’s exaggerations of her life story bigger news? By Chris Cillizza,
WaPo Fact Checker: Hillary Clinton’s claim that she tried to join the Marines. By Glenn Kessler
Excerpt: So far, we do not have enough documentary proof to say the incident never happened, such as supposedly landing under sniper fire in Bosnia or getting the date wrong for hearing a speech by Martin Luther King Jr. (Both of these were written by Michael Dobbs, who originated The Fact Checker during the 2008 campaign.) This is simply a personal recollection — one that at least two friends have confirmed they had been told about at the time. But the circumstances are in question. She pitches it as a matter of public service, but her friends suggest it was something different. So at this point
Clinton’s story is worthy of Two Pinocchios, subject to change if more information becomes available. (Remember when she said she was named after Edmund Hillary who reached in May 1953? She was born in 1947. Instead of "psychopathic liar" how about using the line "Accomplished Liar." --Ray.) Mt. Everest

Appeals court rules against Obama immigration plan
Black Writer: Barack Obama is not seeking "legacy." By Sylvia Thompson
Excerpt: The term legacy carries positive connotations of something bequeath that is to the receiver's benefit. Everything that Barack Obama does is calculated to destroy
America, which he despises. This man no more cares about legacy than he fears being properly prosecuted by the white political leaders whose responsibility it is to remove him from office. I focus on white leaders, because whites are still in the majority and they fill the majority of political offices. If the majority of political operatives were of some other ethnicity, I would lodge my complaint against that group. Ethnicity is an issue only because Obama is half-black and he uses that fact to intimidate guilt-conflicted white people. Otherwise, he would have been impeached and likely in prison for treason by now. (So they will smear her as an "Uncle Tom" rather than as a "Racist." ~Bob)

Jeb Bush’s Positive Plan to Reform Medicare. By John R. Graham
Excerpt: Jeb Bush’s Medicare reform contains two proposals — premium support and Health Savings Accounts — that will have a significant, positive effect on seniors’ access to care and Medicare’s finances. In particular, the proposals will address four flaws in Medicare Advantage, an alternative to traditional Medicare in which seniors choose a plan from a private insurer. Although Obamacare tried to cut seniors’ access to private plans, the use of these plans continues to grow. Before Obama took office, one-quarter of beneficiaries chose Medicare Advantage plans. Today, about one-third do. But despite their popularity, private Medicare plans do not live up to their potential for cost-effectiveness.

Worth Subscribing to: Let’s Help Chris Matthews with Vocabulary and Definitions! By Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt
Sure, Chris Matthews is speaking off-the-cuff, but even by MSNBC standards, this is ridiculous: MATTHEWS: So you’re trying to insinuate that Marco Rubio, a fellow, uh, Spanish surname, I’m not sure the right word is Hispanic for them, because they are Cuban nationals or whatever, or come from Cuba. Let’s check Webster’s dictionary for “Hispanic”: of or relating to the people, speech, or culture of Spain or of Spain and Portugal 2: of, relating to, or being a person of Latin American descent living in the United States; especially: one of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are Hispanic. Now let’s look at “national” when used as a noun: a person who is a citizen of a country Rubio was born in
Miami, Florida in 1971; Cruz was born in 1970 in Alberta, Canada. (He is considered a natural-born U.S. citizen because he was born to an American parent on foreign soil.) Neither one is a Cuban citizen and neither one qualifies as a “Cuban national.”

The Republican primary electorate seems distinctly uninterested in those who have experience in United States of America ; the perception seems to be that if you’ve been here as more than a tourist, you’re part of the problem. I can think of a wide range of conservatives on Capitol Hill who would bristle at the charge -- Trey Gowdy, Mick Mulvaney, Tim Scott, Jeff Sessions, Pat Toomey, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson. The idea that Ted Cruz is some sort of clubby Washington insider just because he works there doesn’t pass the laugh test.

A “pocket of resistance” formed with local activists spreading the word that the Christian aid agency actually performs most of its “charity” work with federal grant money, and that most of the refugees are signed up for food stamps, subsidized housing and Medicaid, offered free schooling and other taxpayer-funded benefits.

"When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon at the head of his legions and marched on Rome, it marked a point of no return. The phrase "crossing the Rubicon" has since survived in reference to any group committing itself to a risky course of action. On January 17th, 2010, despite government and large aid organization's advice not to proceed, Team Rubicon members crossed the Artibonite River separating the Dominican Republic and Haiti, carrying crucial gear and medical supplies to the people of Port-au-Prince.

In October 2001, right after 9/11, the New York Times called Al-Azhar “the revered mosque, the distinguished university, the leading voice of the Sunni Muslim establishment.” It quoted a Muslim cleric: “Al Azhar is the only institution in the world that has learned the moderate Islam and taught it in a moderate way without fanaticism, and without abiding by the teachings of a school that promotes rigidity or violence.” In June 2009 at al-Azhar, Barack Obama said: “For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning, and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt’s advancement.”
