THE WIMPIEST GENERATION

June 9, 2016

 

They are called the “Greatest Generation”; they are the Americans who survived the Great Depression, and fought an epic war on two fronts to defeat the German Nazis, the Italian Fascists, and the Imperial Army of Japan to reclaim freedom for countries from Europe to the Pacific. In my popular …

IN MEMORIAM

May 29, 2016

As another Memorial Day approaches many Americans look on it as just another day off of work or school when they can sit around and barbecue hamburgers and drink soft drinks and beer. Yet, those of us who are veterans know the true meaning of the holiday. Memorial Day was originally called Decoratio…

THE DEMOCRAT PLATFORM

April 17, 2016

 

As the 2016 election process unfolds there are two candidates vying to be the nominee for President in the Democratic Party this fall. One is a 74 year old socialist fan of the former Soviet Union who espouses that America adopt a form of government that has failed in every country that has ad…

MORE VA ABUSE OF VETERANS

March 12, 2016

The federal assault on America’s heroes not only seems to have no end, but is apparently accelerating. It all amounts to downright theft. Veterans are not only having their Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms, to have due process, and to be free of illegal searches and seizures, but also hav…

THE SUPREME COURT

February 26, 2016

While it is true that we are facing a serious Constitutional crisis in the Supreme Court with the death of the brilliant conservative justice Antonin Scalia, few people realize that this is just the inevitable result of a constitutional crisis involving the court that has been building up for years.…

LIBERAL HYPOCRISY

February 8, 2016

The current presidential campaign for the Democratic nomination is highlighting the fact that liberal democrats are some of the world’s greatest hypocrites. Hilary Clinton assails Wall Street bankers and big corporations, but has accepted over 21 million dollars to speak to these banks, investment f…

OBAMA’S LEGACY

January 16, 2016

It seems like all we are hearing about from the main stream media these days is what Obama is doing to protect his legacy. He has one year left in his term and so I have a pretty good idea what that legacy will be and how it relates to what is happening in this country and the world.

          Si…

Christmas 1944

December 21, 2015

 

          This has become a Christmas tradition for me and some of you have seen this post before, but it is that time of year when I start thinking about the importance of friends and family and why I should be thankful for the country I live in. It is also the time when I think abou…

VA CANCELS CHRISTMAS

December 13, 2015

 

It appears that there is no end to what Obama’s Veterans Administration will do to hurt our military veterans. VA employees falsified and destroyed records to cover the failure of facilities to provide treatment to hundreds, and perhaps thousands of veterans. This led to many unnecessary death…

INSANITY OR TREASON?

December 5, 2015

As I write this article it has been a little more than 72 hours since Islamic terrorists launched a horrific and bloody attack in San Bernardino, CA that left 14 innocent Americans dead and 21 more wounded. The two perpetrators of the attack were fortunately killed by police before they could carry …

INTERNET CENSORSHIP IS HERE!

November 6, 2015

I have many people on my confidential email list that are notified when I post a new article on my blog involving Constitutional issues. No one else has access to the list and I don’t do forwards. However, several years ago I began having problems with some of my emails being blocked. It started wit…

LEGISLATIVE ALERT

October 21, 2015

It has happened once again. Important legislation designed to protect the American people has gone down to defeat despite the fact that it was supported by a vast majority of the citizens in this country and a clear majority of their elected representatives in both houses of the U.S. Congress. This …

GUN FREE ZONES ARE DEATH TRAPS

October 7, 2015

Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, CO. theater, Newtown, Connecticut, Charleston, SC, Chattanooga, TN, the Lafayette, LA theater and now Roseburg, OR. All sites of mass shootings in the United States during the last eight years, and all occurred in so-called gun free zones. Universities, schools, mal…

WORLD WAR III

October 1, 2015

September 30, 2015 is a date that we all need to remember. It is the date we may have seen the start of World War III and have witnessed our own government preparing our surrender. For weeks we have watched the Russian military build-up in Syria and we did nothing to try and prevent it. Why should w…

A VETERAN’S OPEN LETTER TO CONGRESS

September 7, 2015

As a member of the U.S. Army I took an oath “that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” As a member of the United States Congress you took the same oath; you said the same words. No one ever told me that when I became a veteran tha…

A Veteran's Response

August 31, 2015

I received many responses to my post titled "I Have Never Met A War Hero", but one of them was particularly eloquent and is a testament to the American military veterans. I post it for everyone to read, exactly as it was received.

"Dear Mr. Connelly,

 
You, Sir, are indeed an American Patr…

VETERAN ALERT!

August 24, 2015

A fellow veteran sent me information about this today. He had received the information and questionnaire in the mail. It is from the Department of Veterans Affairs and is soliciting veterans to participate in the Million Veteran Project (MVP). It is a project supposedly to study genetics and veteran…

I HAVE NEVER MET A WAR HERO

August 23, 2015

I know that may seem like a strange statement since I am a U.S. Army veteran, have two sons who are serving in the army, and am a lifetime member of the American Legion and past commander of a Legion Post. In addition, I have written a book about my father’s unit in World War II. It was while resear…

ANOTHER CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

August 12, 2015

Since Barack Hussein Obama became President of the United States it seems that we have been a constant state of Constitutional crisis. He has repeatedly violated his oath of office, ignored the Constitutional balance of powers by bypassing Congress in order to rewrite or make new laws, and ignoring …

TAKING THE NEXT STEP

July 21, 2015

For over two years the United States Justice Foundation (www.usjf.net) has been working with veterans trying to help them protect their Fifth and Second Amendment rights. The more we learned the worse it got. Then about a year ago we started filing legal memorandums opposing new rules and regulation…
