Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan Rankles Vets; ‘The Butler’ Protests Underway

Jane Fonda’s turn as Nancy Reagan in the new film “The Butler” is angering veterans across the country, and “Hanoi Jane” isn’t doing much to help the situation.

An infamously vocal liberal, Fonda sparked controversy in 1972 when she visited enemy territory in North Vietnam and was photographed sitting on top of an anti-aircraft battery. That picture and her opposition to the war — she was once quoted calling American soldiers murderers — earned her the nickname “Hanoi Jane.”

Now, veterans are outraged that “Hanoi Jane” is playing Nancy Reagan, beloved wife of staunch military supporter and conservative President Ronald Reagan, in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler.” Many veterans’ groups are picketing the film outside at their local movie theaters. . . . Read Complete Report

This story should be Number 1 in every news source in the nation but it’s not.  Why? During the aftermath of the Vietnam war the government swore up and down that there were NO US military members left behind, therefore there if were no POW’s and most of the press went along with the lie.

Do you Understand now why this groundbreaking information about one of our militqary who WAS left behind 44 years ago and still survives is not fit for MSM? . . . EDITOR

A US Army Green Beret captured during the Vietnam War 44 years ago has reportedly been found living in a remote Vietnamese village.

Sgt. John Hartley Robertson was on a secret mission, flying without identification in a helicopter over Laos when he was shot down on May 20, 1968. A search and rescue mission was impossible and the Alabama native was declared ‘missing in action.’ Presumed dead, Robertson was officially listed as killed in action in 1976. Later, his name joined the more than 58,000 other names of US service members killed in action carved into the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, DC. . . . Read Complete Report

The Mysteries of Tonkin Gulf ~The False Flag event that led to War in Vietnam (W/Video)

The Gulf of Tonkin incident in August 1964 proved to be America’s key entry point to war in Vietnam. The encounter sparked the first open fighting between the United States and North Vietnam, the first U.S. bombing of the North and an intensification of U.S. support for South Vietnam. It led to congressional passage of the Tonkin Gulf Resolution, which became the legal justification for America’s entry in the war. As with so much about Vietnam, events in the Gulf of Tonkin were not what they seemed at the time, and the consequences proved enormous. Even after five decades, we still struggle to understand what happened at the Gulf of Tonkin and why. . . . Read Complete Report

UPDATE: 4/10/2013; Be sure and read the comment posted by Jim Trenor who was in General Quarters in USS Turner Joy’s Combat Information Center during the incident and has a different view of events. He states that the attack did happen. Thanks for your eyewitness information Jim!

What can we learn from history about how to start a war?
Well, first create an incident where it seams as though you have been attacked, then manipulate the law using the best lawyers and word-smiths you can find to get away with it. . . Read Complete Post

Vietnam’s Hang Son Doong cave is the largest in the world, with caverns big enough to fit an entire city street inside them. These awe-inspiring photos take you inside the beautiful, alien world of the Hang Son Doong cave.

The cave was, amazingly enough, only discovered twenty years ago, and is just now being properly surveyed. National Geographic has a fascinating longer piece on the recent explorations of the cave, but the real highlight has to be the nearly two dozen amazing photographs from inside the cave . . .

Lewis Marvin of Moonfire on The Joe Pyne Show 1966

Uploaded by  on Jul 12, 2007

1966 was a good year for television. Here we have my old friend Lewis Marvin appearing in the “beef box” of all places on the Joe Pyne Show. Lewis was a kind, but somewhat confused, prototype vegan.

I spent many nights at his Moonfire happenings from 1966 to 1968 doing art for peace and it was a great time. Lewis was from a wealthy east coast family [The S & H Green Stamp fortune] but walked away from it all for peace and animal rights work.

When he died in Panama in 2005 it was a loss to us all. . . . Text posted with video on youtube

‘Savages’ Boss Oliver Stone Knows Good Weed (w/ video)

cannabis Los Angeles — Oliver Stone has smoked great marijuana all over the world, from Vietnam and Thailand to Jamaica and South Sudan. But the filmmaker says the best weed is made in the USA and that pot could be a huge growth industry for taxpayers if it were legalized.

Stone, whose drug-war thriller “Savages” opens Friday, has been a regular toker since his days as an infantryman in Vietnam in the late 1960s and knows a good herb when he inhales one. He insisted in a recent interview that no one is producing better stuff now than U.S. growers.

“There’s good weed everywhere in the world, but my God, these Americans are brilliant,” said Stone, 65, who sees only benefits from legalizing marijuana. “It can be done.

It can be done legally, safely, healthy, and it can be taxed and the government can pay for education and stuff like that. Also, you can save a fortune by not putting kids in jail.”

Stone is known for mixing polemics and drama in films such as “JFK,” ”Born on the Fourth of July,” ”Wall Street” and “Nixon,” his saga of the president who declared the war on drugs 40 years ago. Yet “Savages” may be closer to a pure thrill ride than anything he’s done, the action coming without much in the way of preaching for legalization.

Still, the film offers a fictional portrait of violence among a Mexican drug cartel and California pot growers that makes legalizing marijuana seem like a sane option. . . . Read Complete Report
