    War of 1812 Bicentennial

    in Travel

    In honor of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, World Footprints will travel the "Star-Spangled Banner" Trail by land and by sea through Maryland. Our first stop will be two historical sites in Baltimore--Ft. McHenry and the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House. Then we will explore Southern Maryland and travel to historic Jefferson Patterson Park and the Sotterley Plantation where we’ll learn about the two largest naval battles in Maryland’s history—the Battles of St. Leonard Creek. Finally, we will travel to Maryland’s capital in Annapolis to visit the U.S. Naval Academy for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Academy where we’ll learn about many artifacts from the War of 1812.
    For more information about Maryland’s role in the War of 1812 visit www.StarSpangled200.org.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham and USNI Press Author Charles Neimeyer

    in History

    The War of 1812, was one of America's "small and forgotten" conflicts, much like the Korea in the 20th century. Ill advised, and really unnecessary for both Great Britain and the young United States of America (which was less than 50 years old at the time), the War of 1912 was a conflict that gained neither side much benefit, and diverted badly needed resources from other endeavors. Nevertheless, there were a number of intriguing and important lessons to be learned from the conflict, none more interesting than those derived from the British Chesapeake Campaign of 1814. A British squadron under command of Adm. Cochrane, raised habit for most of 1814 from the Virginia Tidewater to the waters around Baltimore, doing a surprising amount of damage and raising havoc against the seemingly hapless Americans. The British squadron took and burned Hampton, VA, portions of Washington, DC, and other towns along the bay, eventually only being stopped by the heroic defense of Baltimore and bombardment of Fort McHenry. It is a fascinating story, little known by most Americans, which almost went unnoticed during the recent bicentennial of the War of 1812.

    To learn more about the War of 1812 and the 1814 Chesapeake Campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author LCOL. Charles Neimeyer. , USMC (Ret.) to discuss his new book, War in the Chesapeake. His book is a new single-volume history of the campaign, and will prove enlightening for both academics and those new to the story.

    what is a CON CON?

    in Politics Conservative

    A BRIEF HISTORY: The proponents of a con-con have been at it for nearly fifty years now: In 1964 the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations funded and orchestrated – via the CSDI (Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions) – the drafting of a new constitution for America. This model constitution, drawing upon the efforts of more than 100 people, took ten years to write. The 40th draft was published in a book titled "The Emerging Constitution", by Rexford G. Tugwell (Harper & Row, 1974). The project produced the proposed "Constitution for the NewStates of America".      

     "In the event you would be inclined to dismiss the relevance of the proposed new constitution, bear in mind that it is the product of a tax-exempt think-tank which took ten years, $25,000,000.00 and the collaboration of over one-hundred like-minded individuals. . . It would be folly to believe this investment is intended to be merely an exercise in political theory. The frightening reality is, the planners are serious in their efforts to impose a new constitution upon the people of America as we enter the 21st Century."   — Col. Arch Roberts, Committee to Restore the Constitution

    One year following publication of Tugwell's plan - 1975 - Nelson Rockefeller, then president of the U.S. Senate, engineered the introduction of HCR 28 calling for an unlimited Con-Con to be held in the Bicentennial year, 1976. With this time line, we can clearly see they meant business and certainly wasting no time to get it done.

    "Visible collusion of the U.S. Congress with world government organizations created a backlash which doomed the grandiose Fourth of July Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. . . . Arrogance was the seed of its undoing." Col. Arch Roberts.

Energime is a bottom-line solutions provider for businesses looking to lower their operating costs and create a more sustainable business model. Music compliments of Red Buffalo Heart. Michael Dimitri.

    Bill Sosinsky has been a proponent of sustainable growth and renewable energy since the early 1970s. After academic work at the SUNY Binghamton School of business for undergraduate studies, and NYU graduate school, he started Environomic Solutions, an early version of Energime, in 1977. He ran that company until its dissolution in 1981 when it closed due to an immature market. During the 1980s he traveled the world working on documentary films, many of which dealt with the issues of unsustainable development and the improper use of natural resources. Later in that decade, Bill settled back in New York City where he started a construction and renovation company. 1996 saw a move to the Pacific Northwest for Bill and his family. There he developed and built single and multi-family residential communities, invested in real estate and worked as a teacher and mentor, educating new real estate agents and investors. Bill’s credits also include teaching at the Henry George School of Economics, working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York City Bicentennial Corporation, NYPIRG, and composing and producing sound tracks for television and film.

She's had eight #1 singles, has been honored by The Country Music Association, The Academy of Country Music and The Grammy Awards and was the first female country artist to score three multiple-week #1 songs from the same album.

We will also be talking to our very own Honey Badger about his rage filled comments towards Robin Williams, his hate of what he sees as a hypocritical outpouring by the public due to his death, and why he thinks we should not be nationally grieving the life of the one-of-a-kind comedic genius, Robin Williams.
