Siege at Ruby Ridge: The Forgotten History of the ATF Shootout That Started a Militia Movement
Post Date: 2019-08-21 05:36:18 by Deckard
The Siege at Ruby Ridge is often considered a pivotal date in American history. The shootout between Randy Weaver and his family and federal agents on August 21, 1992, is one that kicked off the Constitutional Militia Movement and left America with a deep distrust of its leadership – in particular then-President George H.W. Bush and eventual President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno. The short version is this: Randy Weaver and his wife Vicki moved with their four kids to the Idaho Panhandle, near the Canadian border, to escape what they thought was an increasingly corrupt world. The Weavers held racial separatist beliefs, but were not involved in any violent activity or ...

THIS DAY IN HISTORY – The Ramones play their first public gig at CBGB in downtown Manhattan – 1974
Post Date: 2019-08-16 06:49:27 by Deckard
Via History.com Five years to the day after half a million rain-soaked hippies grooved and swayed to the psychedelic sounds of the Grateful Dead at Woodstock, four young men from Forest Hills, Queens, took to the stage of an East Village dive bar in jeans, motorcycle jackets and Converse high-tops to launch a two-minute sonic attack on everything those 60s icons stood for. The date was August 16, 1974, the bar was CBGB and the band was the Ramones, giving their debut public performance. The rapidly shouted words with which they opened that show and launched the punk-rock revolution were, as they would always be, “One! Two! Three! Four!” One eyewitness to the scene was music ...

Gordon Lightfoot’s Tale of a Ship’s Crew and Its Captain
Post Date: 2019-08-10 18:47:51 by Deckard
EmailWhen listeners first heard Gordon Lightfoot‘s heart-wrenching tale of the 29 brave souls who lost their lives aboard a ship in his 1976 hit, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” many assumed that he had chosen a subject from perhaps a century earlier. The singer-songwriter had scored a handful of hits in his native Canada and had first come to the attention of worldwide audiences with his 1970 smash, “If You Could Read My Mind.” After a series of mid-chart singles, Lightfoot scored what would be his biggest hit, 1974’s “Sundown,” which reached #1 in the U.S. and Canada. It was followed that same year by another big success, “Carefree ...

Ron Paul: Candor, Courage, Consistency, and Compassion
Post Date: 2019-08-07 07:41:19 by Deckard
In this classic interview the great Ron Paul demonstrates how he has always been singularly dedicated to the principles of liberty and justice. Here he forthrightly speaks truth to power, exposing those dark subterranean forces which actually control the destiny of America, sinister forces which observers across the political spectrum today describe as the deep state. Candor, courage, consistency, and compassion define this man who will go down in the annals of history as America’s greatest statesman.

The Manson Murders, JFK, 9/11, and the Psychopathy of Power
Post Date: 2019-08-03 10:50:36 by Deckard
“With Alan Scheflin, a forensic psychologist and law professor who’d written a book on MKULTRA, I laid out a circumstantial case linking (CIA mind control guru Jolly) West to Manson. Was it possible, I asked, that the Manson murders were an MKULTRA experiment gone wrong? ‘No,’ he said, ‘an MKULTRA experiment gone right.’” (CHAOS , p. 369)I moved out of Southern California in the summer of 1969. I was ten years old, and my parents were fleeing decadence and depravity in favor of the more wholesome Midwest.Before our move, a story had circulated about some local (Newport Beach) high schoolers who had “gone on an LSD trip” and gotten caught by ...

E-Rant: The Improbable “Airplane”
Post Date: 2019-08-01 05:30:37 by Deckard
Here are some thoughts about the “airplane” that supposedly flew into the Pentagon on the day the “enemies of freedom” struck. Or did they? I grew up in the DC area – and I was there on that day. It has always bothered me that not one picture (or video) of an “airplane” flying toward the Pentagon has surfaced. Bothered me because of the improbability. As anyone who has spent even a little time in the DC area knows, the place is heavily surveilled. Security cameras everywhere; and thousands of tourists with their own cameras, too. On that day, all those tourists knew two airplanes had been flown into the Trade Center towers in NY. Every one of those ...

Your Right to Absinthe

Albert Maignan-La muse verte Poet succumbs to the green fairyYou can’t believe the shock. I was sitting in a living room drinking absinthe with friends, and I said in passing something like: “This is delicious but wouldn’t it be great if the original recipe with wormwood were legal again?” My friend, the economist George Selgin, said; “This has wormwood in it just like the absinthe from the old days!” I grabbed the bottle and looked at the ingredients. Sure enough, he was right! Printed right on the label was the word. Then I became worried that something terrible or wonderful was about to happen to me, that I would see green fairies, hallucinate ...

If Not Oswald, Who Killed President Kennedy and Why?
Post Date: 2019-07-24 08:38:50 by Deckard
Presented at the 37th Annual Meeting of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness, Tucson, Arizona, July 21, 2019 I was 23 years old when President Kennedy was killed. Now, 55 years later I am most likely the only person still alive who personally knew the two physicians who figure most importantly in the case, Admiral George Burkley, Kennedy’s physician, and Dr. Malcolm Perry, the surgeon who performed a tracheotomy on him after he was shot. When I was a teenager my father and our family and Dr. Burkley and his family shared a duplex at the Newport Naval Hospital in Newport, Rhode Island, where then Capt. George Burkley, M.D. was Chief of Medicine and my father, Capt. Donald Miller, M.D. was ...

The Moon Landing Inspired Pink Floyd’s Most Overlooked Song
Post Date: 2019-07-23 11:18:33 by Deckard
A bluesy, atmospheric piece that the band improvised live on the air during the Apollo 11 mission deserves to be more than a footnote of musical history.For seven and a half minutes on the night of July 20, 1969, Pink Floyd took thousands of BBC viewers to the moon. Of course, two men were already there: Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 astronauts who became the first human beings to set foot on the lunar surface. However, the members of Pink Floyd—David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright—weren’t using science, calculus, and technology to transport people through space on that fateful evening. They were using music, specifically an improvised ...

30 years ago, “Weird Al" Yankovic's "UHF" becomes a cult classic
Post Date: 2019-07-22 11:21:15 by Deckard
Making the progression from music videos to movies seemed like a natural fit for “Weird Al" Yankovic. As the rise of MTV continued in the '80s, Yankovic was able to make his name with  his clever parody songs and videos, such as his extended riff on Michael Jackson’s “Bad” with his own “Fat." So why not make a movie? Though Yankovic and his gleeful comic sensibilities may have felt appropriate for the big screen, the resulting effort, 1989's UHF, only ever gained a cult status.We Got It AllThat cult status, of course, wasn’t what anyone planned. Yankovic and his manager, Jay Levey, collaborated on the script for UHF, despite neither ...

Tempus Fugit
Post Date: 2019-07-19 08:36:14 by Deckard
The other day, I found myself behind what – to me – is a relatively new and certainly modern Mustang GT from the mid-’90s wearing “antique” tags. Holy tempus fugit! Was 1994 really 25 years ago? Yup. It was. And this ’94 Mustang  GT is now  . . . an antique. Which means I am, too. Both of us began our careers at the dawn of the Modern Car Era. Port fuel injection was just then replacing Throttle Body Injection – which was basically an electronic carburetor – often mounted on an intake manifold the same as the ones that actually had carbs underneath them since the era of the Model T. They were “wet flow” – air and fuel ...

A Very Politically Incorrect Thought
Post Date: 2019-07-08 09:19:25 by Deckard
Why is the Anti-Defamation League, which sees incipient Hitlerism in any expression of viewpoint critical of the policies of the Israeli government (which apparently can do no wrong, ever) or which questions the genuflection of the American government to Israel, so blind to something actually Hitlerian? Literally – as in down to the same verbiage? America is no longer a country or our nation. It is the Heimat. The “Homeland,” rendered in English. And there is a Heimatsicherheitsdeinst – a Homeland Security Department. This is what Leonard Peikoff meant when he wrote about Ominous Parallels – but that was 50 years ago. And here we are. Those not versed in the ...

Mad Magazine Is Dead
Post Date: 2019-07-05 06:04:27 by Deckard
The comic magazine's ability to rib culture, politics, and business shaped the boomer mentality, and we should be grateful.The comics community is abuzz with the news that Mad magazine will, after two more issues, cease publication of original material and abandon newsstand distribution, becoming a reprint title available only in comic book shops (with the exception, Hollywood Reporter reports, of one special issue a year of new content).Mad began life as a comic book in 1952, the brainchild of then-obscure New York cartoonist Harvey Kurtzman, published by William Gaines' E.C. Comics. Through his work in Mad's formative years and at later humor magazines he ...

How to Trick Yourself Into Liking Classical Music
Post Date: 2019-07-04 09:31:02 by Deckard
Only into shredding guitar solos? Obsessed with crazy flow, or sick beat drops? Turns out there’s a classical music equivalent to everything!Ah. So you’ve reached that point in your life where you suddenly need to develop a genuine and abiding appreciation of classical music? Either you need to impress someone (a sophisticated hot person, a Wagner-obsessed boss, your local cultural elite), you’ve reached the age of 55, or you’ve come to realize that the shallow, money-worn world of popular music emptied itself of all authenticity and originality long ago and is now a grotesque, ever-accelerating carousel of vapidity and barely disguised plagiarism. Don’t worry, it ...

Would the Founding Fathers Be Banned From Social Media?

There’s something happening here/ What it is ain’t exactly clear.” – Buffalo Springfield The Sunday newspaper had been left on the park bench.  Its book page had lists of best-sellers, as if numbers two through ten could be the “best” along with number one.  Absurdities were everywhere for the taking.  On the Non-Fiction Hardcover list, numbers 3, 5, and 10 each had the word fuck in the title.  The books were published by two old and respected publishing houses: Harper and Little Brown.  However, something was odd, for the word fuck was spelled f*ck.  These books were about hope, acceptance, and living the good life, cliché ...

Lies They Told Us: A Long History of Being Manipulated Into War
Post Date: 2019-06-24 11:43:42 by Deckard
Before we retaliate over drone and oil tanker attacks, take a look at all the times we've been duped. “It is the assessment of the U.S. government that Iran is responsible for today’s attacks in the Gulf of Oman” Credit: @SecPompeo Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says there’s no question that Iran initiated the recent attacks on those two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The evidence, he says, is “indisputable” and “unmistakable.” President Donald Trump weighs in with the same degree of certainty. “Well, Iran did do it,” he told Fox News. Maybe. But our past is screaming at us: don’t buy it; you can’t trust your leaders when ...

Revealed last secret of American Pie - pop's most enigmatic song: Drugs, Elvis, murders and how a lost verse sheds new light on Don McLean's hauntingly evocative lyrics...
Post Date: 2019-06-22 04:49:47 by Deckard
There has never been a popular song quite like it. For more than 40 years, its lyrics have been an enigma wrapped in an eight-and-a-half minute long rock 'n' roll puzzle.Argued over by generations of geeky fans, deciphered and re-deciphered by code-breaking rock nerds and considered to be poetic reflections on mid-20th century U.S. social history by even groovier academics, it's called American Pie. And this week its lyrics, hand-written in 1971 by a young folk singer called Don McLean, were sold at auction in New York for more than $1 million.That's a lot of money for 18 sheets of paper, albeit with a lost seventh verse. But, to be honest, I rather think that whoever bought ...

Dire Straits’ Breakthrough Debut Album @41
Post Date: 2019-06-14 09:21:36 by Deckard
EmailCall it the solo that sold the band. Mark Knopfler had written “Sultans of Swing” on his National Steel guitar in an open tuning, but he found the result “dull” until he bought his first Stratocaster in 1977, the year he joined brother David Knopfler (rhythm guitar), John Illsley (bass) and Pick Withers (drums) in Café Racer, the London quartet that would be rechristened Dire Straits. Picking up the tempo and plugging in his red ’61 Strat, Knopfler crafted an iconic rock anthem capped by a two-part solo that was pivotal to the band’s breakthrough. The reworked version was one of five songs on the demo tape the band had submitted to MCA ...

America's rural radio stations are vanishing – and taking the country's soul with them
Post Date: 2019-06-08 00:38:02 by Deckard
When I arrive at the radio station, Mark Lucke is standing in the doorway, looking out at the spitting, winter rain. He’s slim and stoic, with sad, almost haunted, eyes. The first thing he asks is if I’d like to see “the dungeon”. Who wouldn’t? Lucke pulls on a Steeler’s jacket and a baseball cap over brown hair that falls halfway down his back, and leads me across the five-acre yard. Out here, 90 miles east of Tucson, the desert is a long sweep of brush the color of beach sand. Lucke seems to slip through the rainy day like a ghost. The radio station, whose call letters are KHIL, has long been the daily soundtrack for this frontier town (population 3,500) that ...

On this day 200 million horses unleashed on antiChrist
Post Date: 2019-06-06 12:15:00 by interpreter
75 years ago today (June 6, 1944), 200 million horses, prepared (manufactured) by 4 (angelic) Allies sporting red white and blue insignias, were unleashed against the anti-Christ and the third of the Earth aligned with him. It soon brought an end to the Great Tribulation known as WW II which lasted precisely 3 1/2 years as prophesied (based on the 360-day calendar used in all Bible prophecy). (See Revelation 9:13-20 and Rev. 13:1-5) Barry M

Newly Released Files Document the FBI's Participation in the Hunt for Bigfoot
Post Date: 2019-06-06 06:05:09 by Deckard
37 (Paul Brady/Dreamstime.com) If the FBI only releases files to the public when the subject of a file has died, and the FBI is releasing its files on Bigfoot, does that mean Bigfoot is dead?Sadly, you won't find the answer to that question in the 22 pages of archival documents the FBI just released detailing its investigation of the mythical creature.What those pages do reveal, amazingly enough, is that the FBI took the hunt for Bigfoot seriously enough to test hair samples provided by an Oregon-based sasquatch enthusiast.The FBI's brief investigation into the fictitious reclusive man-beast began in August 1976, when it received a letter from Irish-born cryptozoologist Peter C. ...
