Wednesday Hero ~ SSG Jude Voss

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 25, 2008


Staff Sgt. Jude Voss
1st Battalion, 3d Special Forces Group (Airborne)
U.S. Army

His courage illustrates a combat truth to these veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam: Soldiers arent thinking about glory or ideals in the midst of a battle. They fight for the men to the left and right of them.

And that’s just what SSgt. Jude Voss did in September of 2006 when, without consideration to his safety, SSgt. Voss ran through enemy fire and the burning, smoking debris of a truck to rescue Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube. Sgt. Stube was in a bad way. Uniform burning and legs busted, but because of the actions of SSgt. Voss he is alive today.

Because of his actions that day, SSgt. Voss was nominated for and received the Silver Star Medal for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action. “I did what everybody out there would do” Voss said. “I was just the closest guy.”

You can read SSgt. Voss’s story here.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives
so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday.
For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams.
Those Who Say That We’re In A Time When There Are No Heroes,
They Just Don’t Know Where To Look

Monday Morning Blogburst: National and International Edition

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 12, 2008

This is a quick roundup of what is going on, in the order I found them in my RSS Reader:

Kentucky Asks, “Where’s Obama?” via Rezko Watch, which has more dirt on Obama and his pals than you can shake a stick at.

5GW Roundup at Dreaming 5GW.

The miliatry is testing insect-sized robots.

The Long War Journal notes the Operations in Sadr City and also that Taliban and al-Qaeda operatives were killed in Afghanistan.

Hezbullah is attacking Druze Villages in Lebanon in the new civil war.

For updates on the new Lenanese Civil War (sponsored by Iran), check out the following blogs:

Lebanese Political Journal

Across the Bay

Now Lebanon

Blacksmiths of Lebanon

Blogging Lebanon

Beirut Spring

There are more, many more, but this will give you a clearer picture of what is going on far better than what you see on TV or hear on the radio.

Theats Watch focuses on Mexico.

Nate has posted Five reasons Why 2012 Is No Go For Clinton, and I agree.

It is now coming to light that Chavez was trying to arm FARC with Help From Belarus, and also posted video of the ambush showing the captured computers. I think it was highly appropriate that Reyes was killed because Colombians were tracking calls made by Chavez. Who says eavesdropping doesn’t work?

James Lewis, at The American thinker, notices a pattern in Democrat nominees for President, and it ain’t pretty for America.

California lawmakers are preparing to tell Californians how they must give to charities.

Carl in Jerusalem notes that the IDF is now giving out instructions to Israelis living from 7 to 20 km from the Gaza Strip on what to do in case of a rocket attack. Previously, only those who lived within 7 km had to worry about being killed by Jimmy carter’s terrorists friends, Hamas. My advice to the IDF is that several neutron bombs would solve that problem quite nicely, if they were all detonated in a manner that minimized Israeli deaths.

Newsbusters have noticed that the Legacy Media is ignoring Obama’s 57-state gaffe, while they obsessed over Quayle’s potato(e) gaffe.

Sweetness & Light has a poem used by Obama’s Church to stomp on the memory of the Americans killed on the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, which dismisses the event as trivial with a moment of silence…and requesting a full day of silence for Palestinians, nine months of silence for the dead of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and so on…there is a pdf file copy of the Churh bulletin here if you want to see it in context. I have downloaded a copy, and plan on making sure plenty of voters in my neck of the woods see it, and allow them to make their own decisions.

Obama has surrounded himself with too many radicals over the years for it to be an accident…it is by design, reflecting what is in his very soul. This man, and his philosophy, cannot be allowed any where near the White House.

Now, this is funny. There was a Saudi Conference on Women in the Workplace, and the women were kept in a separate room from the men, not allowed to speak, only to listen to the men speak.

In case you haven’t heard, another one of Obama’s Associates has been discovered doing things they shouldn’t be doing. This Obama Advisor was in regular contact with Jimmy Carter’s terrorist friends, HAMAS. I guess that the Democrats will ignore Obama’s Assosciates the same way they ignored Clinton’s Associates, both those that died, were imprisoned, or were raped. Talk about being in the tank for the guy!

And, I’ll end on this note. Have you ever read Atlas Shrugged? You should. To give you a taste, this is an MP3 file of the famous John Galt Speech in that book.

Friday Morning Blogburst

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 25, 2008


One of the Scrutiny Hooligans captured audio of the Hilda Beast last night, and promises photos… [Read post]

Read a report on the Buncombe County Democrat Convention that was held last Saturday from a progressive point of view. It also contains a letter written by Buncombe Commission Candidate Cecil Bothwell… [Dancewater]

Operation C.H.A.O.S. is bearing fruit among the Democrats as they grow to dislike Hillary more and more everyday. This, in my opinion, could help knock Hillary out of serious contention in 2012 as well as cause those who support her to punish Obama in the fall if he is the nominee and she isn’t on the ticket. Either way, this is a win-win situation for the Republicans, despite what the punk RINOs think about it . [Blue NC]

Closer to our side of the aisle, the talented Leslee Kulba notes that picking flowers in the National Parks (paid for by us) can get you prison time and banned from the parks. [Wild West]

Local blogger Lemuel Calhoun praises the NCGOP for their advert targeting Bev Perdue and Richard Moore and notifies us of McCain’s behavior. [Hillbilly White Trash]

John in Carolina observes that some of the Duke-88 are re-writing the history of their involvement in the Duke LaCrosse Hoax. [John in Carolina]

Iraqi and American units engage the enemy in Iraq. [The Long War Journal]

I’m sure you all heard about the Iraq War veteran and his family being attacked by peaceful hippies who were outraged that the ani-war protest was being counter protested by them. And most shockingly…the police wouldn’t arrest the hippies…even when one spit on the veteran”s 14 year old son in front of the police. I keep telling people that the only speech the left wants to be free is their own. And like Jimbo, I believe it is about time to start beating these fascist Hippies into the very earth they worship. [Black Five]

And bringing it back home to North Carolina, Robert Spencer wonders whatever happened to the Myrick Plan? [Jihad Watch]

I hope everyone has a good weekend and will stop back by to watch my live coverage of the NC-11 GOP Convention. That is if the internet connection cooperates…

**update** 9.30am Watch a video of candidate appearances at the Buncombe GOP Ladies Club shot and edited by Richard Bernier at my local and state-issues blog, WNC Citizens Blog.

Texas Communists For Obama and other Essential Morning Reads (updated with video)

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 12, 2008

This is gonna be fun:

Photo in an Obama Campaign office, with Communist Che Guevera adorning the wall on a Cuban flag, just showing how closely aligned American lefties are with Communism. At least McCain (or his supporters) won’t be likely to be lending support to Communists…like Fidel Castro. I just hope the rumor is true that he has said he would work to free Cuba of Communism. Read more on this at Redstate.

**update** 7.49am I have obtained an embeddable version of the video:

Why all the fuss about Che Guevera? Che Guevera was Fidel Castro’s chief executioner and a terrorist. I always find it deliciously ironic that the left…ostensibly against the death penalty, would hold a man who murdered in cold blood as a hero, adorning their clothing, walls, and vehicles. This should tell you all you need to know about progressives…they are harbingers of socialism, and would bring a new generation of murderers and executioners with them. It is also one of the things that set me against the Ron Paul Revolution, so many Idiot Ron Paul Supporters idolize Che Guevera, as indicated in this T-Shirt design.

For more information on the murderer Che Guevera, read The Real Cuba, a website devoted to exposing the Lies of the Left regarding Cuba, and check out the Che Guevera profile on Discover The Networks.

More people telling the truth about Cuba:

Babalu Blog, who has a team of bloggers focused on Cuba, and Latin America.

Kill Castro: A War Blog. Need I say more?

I’ll leave this discussion of this EVIL man with one of his quotes:

“To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary…These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall! (El Paredón)” –Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara

We confine our enemies in a luxurious prison in Club Gitmo to await a tribunal, while the Lefty Hero Che just lined up men, women, and children and shot them. Never forget that about lefties…they would do what they accuse everyone else of doing.

Now, on to a real hero, Norman Podhoretz:

Powerline gave an award to Norman Podhoretz for his new book, World War IV, which is drum I’ve been beating for a while now…that we are engaged in a Fourth World War. Gateway Pundit has the scoop, and links to more scoopy stuff related to the evening.

In Minnesota, of all places, citizens are standing up to their tyrannical government by…lighting up. Smoking has been barred in restaurants and bars. Unless it is as part of a theatrical production. In at least one location, people take part in the evenings entertainment, and Captain Ed has the program for the performance.

And, speaking of tyrannical government, if either Democrat gets elected to the office of President in November, we are likely to be forced to buy health care…even if we don’t want it. The bottom line of this whole exercise is to steal money from the healthy to pay for the insurance, and the votes, of the unhealthy. Those of us who have taken care of our God-given bodies will be forced to pay for other people’s laziness, and lack of foresight. Read more at The American Thinker.

And speaking of tyrannical behavior…the lefties at CNN are now joining the lefty boycott of Fox News by dissing one of the guys on their die at Fox – Geraldo Rivera – who has a new book coming out, “His Panic: Why Americans Fear Hispanics in the U.S.” – was booked to appear on Nancy Grace’s CNN show on Feb. 28. But then he was disinvited and told CNN had “a blanket boycott” against anyone from Fox. ” ‘The Most Trusted Name in News’ just chickened out,” Rivera told Page Six. “This reveals a corporate insecurity.” Fox has had on as guests both Wolf Blitzer and Glenn Beck. A CNN rep denied any boycott and blamed a scheduling conflict. Newsbusters has the story.

At least Governor Mike Huckabee’s “Al Gore” moment has slipped away with the loss of the Washington vote count, what a silly boy he is, he doeasn’t even realize the race for the GOP nomination is over, and McCain can win in November!

The Democrat nomination is scrutinized by Patrick Ruffini, by way of spreadsheet.

So, that is a brief, brief snapshot of the American landscape as observed from the Pig Pen.
