J. D. Longstreet is a conservative “Carolina Boy.” A Southern American (A native sandlapper (South Carolinian) and an adopted Tar Heel - A North Carolinian) with a deep passion for the history, heritage, and culture of the southern states of America. At the same time he is a deeply loyal American believing strongly in “America First.” He is also a very proud direct descendent of several Confederate soldiers. A thirty-year veteran of the broadcasting business, as an “in the field” and “on-air” news reporter (contributing to radio, TV, and newspapers) and a conservative broadcast commentator. Longstreet is a veteran of the US Army and US Army Reserve. He is a member of the American Legion and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. A lifelong Christian, Longstreet subscribes to “old Lutheranism” the foundation of which is “sola scriptura” to express and exercise his faith. His Commentaries are posted at Omega Dispatch as well as many conservative sites on the Internet, and on Facebook.
Just a few days ago, we published a piece entitled: "Get Ready for a Nuclear Iran." The thrust of the piece was that Obama will not make any attempt to stop Iran from developing an atomic bomb or a missile delivery system for nuclear warheads, but will, in fact, allow Iran to continue their endeavor for nuclear weapons. We hypothesized in that commentary that Obama was developing a strategy of "containment" of a nuclear Iran -- because he knows he is not going to make an attempt to stop them and indeed, doesn't want Israel to stop them, either.
Here is just a snippet of what we said in that writing: "... it provides no comfort knowing that Iran is closing on its desire to have its very own nuclear bomb, which it intends to drop on Israel and the United States at the earliest opportunity.
It should come as no surprise when the Obama administration rolls out their plans for "containment of a nuclear Iran." Many have felt for some time that was Obama's ultimate goal all the while.
The Russian bear is raging around the globe again. The 'Russkies' are up to their old tricks once more. Probing, tweaking, testing, aggravating, and in general -- making a complete nuisance of themselves as they strut across the world stage in what they hope is an intimidating posture to strike fear in the hearts of well, EVERYBODY.
Russia is STILL so far behind the remainder of the world that they are pitiable.
However, if the Russians ever decide to climb out of the Vodka bottle and sober up, they could actually become the great country they SAY they want to be.
They are a strange people. Fearful of everything and everybody out side the borders of Russia. As a country, they are convinced that someone is going to attack them and take their treasures.
If I may be allowed, I'd like to paraphrase Saint Paul (I believe it was) who said: "Faith is the belief in things not seen." What Paul actually said is this: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Therein, I think, is the problem for the Christian religion today. Even the evangelicals are beginning to lose their way.
We live in a time dominated by science, which has made huge advancements in practically every field of science man can think of -- or devise. One could argue, I think, that modern man has shifted his reliance off God and onto science. This is a scenario not unlike those I used to read in science fiction books as a lad.
Twenty-eight(?) year old Kim Jong Un, North Korea's "leader" has very nearly talked himself into a corner. A corner that may well destroy what is left of North Korea, or as they refer to their country: The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea ... The DPRK.
Kim has blustered and played the role of a spoiled brat in the grip of a monumental tantrum on the world's stage for months now. He has baited South Korea and the US and managed to "PO" China, his only real ally in the region. China has recently moved troops up to the border of North Korea, ostensibly to stop an expected flood of North Korean refugees from fleeing into China seeking refuge from American and South Korea bombs and missiles.
The latest threats out of the "Hermit Kingdom," as of the morning of April 4th, 2012, is to strike the US mainland with nuclear missiles, which North Korean troops moved to North Korea's Eastern Border in a show of preparation.
America's Wuzzification - I am embarrassed -- ashamed, ashamed, I tell you!
What ever happened to real men in America? Where'd they go, huh? Whatever happened to real women in America? Where'd they go? I ask because neither are readily identifiable in America any more.
The Americans that are most easily seen today are the pale, limp-wristed, weak-spined, pitiable, pliant, malleable, tractile, fall-to-the-floor-and-assume-the-fetal-position men and women who quake in their boots at the mere utterance of the word"GUN."
Egads, people! What has happened to you? What has happened to America, the champion of freedom around the globe?
In two generations we have become a nation of wusses! (A wuss is a person who is physically weak and ineffectual.) The individual American -- and the nation -- have become wusses! ARRRG!
