    Hey old lady where you going to?...US Army Ranger School

    in Politics

    With the graduation of three females from Ranger School at Fort Benning and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter’s subsequent decision to allow women to serve in combat; the Army’s toughest, roughest training is now a repository for every crackpot concept conceived in a Berkeley coffee house.

    On the next edition of the Ray Starmann Show, Ray discusses the feminization of Ranger School, the Army’s refusal to release the Ranger School records of female graduates to Congressman Steve Russell (R., OK) and documented proof that women were given special treatment prior to Ranger School, which the Army has vehemently denied.

  • Political Crimes Are Grave Sins: Chat W/ US Army Whistleblower 2LT Scott Bennett

    in POTUS

    America's intensifying denial of sin since the 1960's has offered Political Operatives pathways to grave crimes against the American people, crimes unimaginable in our country's youth, young adulthood and early middle age. As America settled into what most hoped would be a comfortable 'mid' middle age post World War II, rather than enjoying the freedoms we fought so hard to preserve, our moral laxity cultivated the overgrowth of wickedness amongst our politicians. 

    Americans are not the only ones victimized by the crimes of its Political Sinners; due to our historical positioning and might so is the entire human race.

    Dreadful, shocking criminal activity is now routinely conducted in our once-sacred government offices. Americans suffer blatant theft, destruction of our Constitutional rights and freedoms, Treason, perversion of Justice, willful destruction of The American Dream, government threats and intimidation, assassination of civilians deemed 'Enemies Of The State', psychopathic militarization of civilian domains, and sadistic, deranged stalking of American Citizens' every move. Global activity ditto.

    What are Political Sins? How do individual humans suffer by their commission? How does America as a Nation suffer? How can we, a Nation established under God, vigorously weed out of office Political Sinners, and replace them with citizens of utmost Integrity? How, then, does America skillfully, sincerely communicate with the world that we will do our best to 'sin no more'? 

    U. S. Army 2LT Scott Bennett, Whistleblower, is today's guest.

    (139) John Adame and Raymond Ramirez US Army Veterans

    Today I am back at the Whittier Museum talking to John Adame 9th Infantry  and Raymond Ramirez, 173 rd Airborne Brigade to sort of do part of a show we did  a couple of weeks ago. Since that show I have doing some research and reading and I just wanted to let both of these Gentleman tell some more of their stories. I also want Mr. Ramirez to share some of his stoires in trying to reach out to fellow veterans. Both Gentlemen are Vietnam Veterans who went on to do other things in their lives.

    Should be fun to do some story telling

    I would be remiss if i did not say THANK YOU to the Whittier Museum , Whittier museum for letting me use their facillites

    Thank you

    The Hotwash with CJ and Alex Presents: John Steinbaugh

    in Military

    John Steinbaugh retired from the US Army Special Operations Command after 25 years.  John was initially an infantryman. He volunteered for Special Forces, became a medic in 1994 and was assigned to 10th Special Forces Group.  In 2000, John was serving as a S.E.R.E. instructor when 9/11 immediately prompted him to volunteer for additional training in counter terrorism, we were going to war and he wanted to be part of it and fight with the best.  
    From 2002-2012 he served as a SF Medic with a tier one command that conducted continuous operations in OIF & OEF and they continue to do this today.  After being wounded a 2nd time he was placed as head of medical combat development. Liaising with USSOCOM medics coming back from the battlefield, he found out what they needed to better improve patient outcomes.  John was wounded a third time while serving in this position and testing new equipment under actual use conditions.
    Upon retirement John took a job with RevMedx as their Director of Strategic Operations.  
    RevMedx makes hemorrhage control products for the military. John invented a revolutionary product called XSTAT which is unmatched at controlling non compressible hemorrhage, a tool that is saving lives on the battlefield.   John started a 501c3 in Oregon taking wounded veterans out on fishing & hunting trips. VSA (veteranssportsmanalliance.org) was started by a 13-year-old girl in California.  John was one of the 1st wounded soldiers they took on a trip.  He missed the comradery very much when he retired and being able to take wounded and disabled veterans out on these events helps him keep his sanity giving him a feeling of still being involved and giving back to the veteran community.  He has been married for 28 years to his wife Laurie and they have two daughters
