    Irate, Tireless Minority - Guest Host DR of The Maritime Sentry

    in Politics Conservative

    Due to a recommendation of complete vocal rest for at least four weeks, I am finding out how blessed I am to have friends who can serve as guest hosts. Today's guest host is DR, a fellow blogger who blogs at The Maritime Sentry and also puts out an informative "paper" called "The Sentry" on twitter. 
    Today's show will be a discussion on the upcoming primary, states rights and how docile and sub-servant civilians have become.

    At least that is what was planned until the standoff in Oregon came to a deadly and shameful end. The federal government just killed a peacefull protester over a park. A park over which the federal government was excercising unconstitutional rights of ownership and the tyranny that has been eating away at the ranchers and farmers of this nation, our fellow citizens who dared to protest tyranny by lawfare. And far too many of our fellow Americans are laughing about it from their comfy gilded cages.


    Doing my best to help the Lord set the brushfires of freedom in the hearts of men and to restore America, God willing, to the beacon of freedom she was meant to be.

    Songwriters Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer Release MARITIME

    in Indie Music

    Singer-songwriters Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer chat with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith about their new album MARITIME, their national and international tour, living in a cabin on an island in Washington State, kayaking with Orcas, and more. Drawing on the nature around them, McGraw and Fer recorded MARITIME in their cabin on an island nestled between Seattle, WA and Victoria, British Columbia. Instead of leaving to record in a bustling city, McGraw and Fer decided to stay isolated at their seaside home, calling on kindred musicians and their producer to share in the experience.
    McGraw and Fer met in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rain forests of Washington. Fer's musical pulse led her to Spain, where she studied music, language and local culture.

    This interview originally aired on April 20, 2015 on Big Blend Radio's Nature Connection show, which broadcasted live from Ridgemark Golf & Country Club in Hollister, California.

    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Dwight Hughes – A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY

    in History

     Most Americans, when they think about the Civil War, probably remember the great land battles like Gettysburg and Shiloh, not realizing that there also was a significant maritime conflict as well. From inland waterways to the deep oceans, Union and Confederate naval forces were engaged in a four-year struggle for control of the trade routes to and from North America. One key campaign was the Confederate attempt to interdict key Union maritime activities, particularly whaling ships which supplied important oil products. To accomplish this task, Confederate Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory commissioned and acquired a small number of armed merchant cruisers, mostly from Great Britain. Though few in number, these merchant cruisers harassed Union trade routes across the globe, and required the Union Navy to commit valuable resources to hunt them down. Along the way their captains and crews became legends in the annals of American naval history.


    To learn more about the Confederate commerce raiding campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dwight Hughes to discuss his new book, A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY.  The book chronicles the voyage of the Confederate merchant cruiser CSS Shenandoah, which in 1864 and 1865, circumnavigated the globe on an epic wartime cruise. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen, in what will be certainly an intriguing hour.

    Episode 317: Naval Presence and National Strategy, with Jerry Hendrix

    in Military

    From the same school as "If you want peace, prepare for war," a global maritime power must maintain a presence at sea. It must design a national strategy in line with its economic capability and political will, and make sure it mans, trains, and equips its navy in line with the design.


    If presence is a critical function of a navy, how is it best accomplished, what are the tradeoffs, and how does it impact friends, competitors, and those sitting on the fence?


    Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Dr. Henry J. Hendrix, Jr, CAPT USN (Ret).


    Jerry is a Senior Fellow and the Director of the Defense Strategies and Assessments Program at the Center for a New American Security.


    When on active duty, his staff assignments include tours with the Chief of Naval Operation’s Executive Panel (N00K), and the OSD Office of Net Assessment From 2011-2012 he served as the Director and Designated Federal Officer of the Secretary of the Navy’s Advisory Panel.  He also contributed to the 2012 Department Posture Statement to the Congress.  Following the fall, 2011 Navy Inspector General’s Report on the state of the Naval History and Heritage Command, he was verbally ordered by the Secretary to assume the position of Director of Naval History. 


    Hendrix previously served as the Navy Fellow to the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University. He has been awarded a Bachelor Degree in Political Science from Purdue University, Masters Degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School (National Security Affairs) and Harvard University (History) and received his doctorate from King’s College, London (War Studies).

    in Politics

    Hr1   State of the Union (SOTU)... recapping the lies...


    Iran defies international law and maritime law holding US Navy personnel hostage overnight. And the White House administration calls this a "win"?!

    We're going to have to work together with the Russians to defeat ISIS.

    From the Kelly File... Liberal talk show host, Tavist Smiley, says Obama missed an opportunity and that black Americans have lost ground and are worse off than before his presidency.


    In Britain, 72% of teachers want to monitor kids' lunchboxes. Who's backing this "Eat Like A Champ" effort? Dannon. Don't think it couldn't happen here.


    Virgina electronic voting machines susceptible to hacking because of insecure passwords.


    Hr3  What would you give for a teacher like this? She's 102 years old!


    Sharron Angle raised $25 million to run for U.S. Senate in Nevada. 250,000 people donated! 94% of donations were less than $35! Think you can't make a difference? Think again!
