A Soldier’s Christmas




A Soldier’s Christmas    

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
my daughter beside me, angelic in rest.

Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
Transforming the yard to a winter delight.
The sparkling lights in the tree, I believe,
Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.

My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep
in perfect contentment, or so it would seem.
So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn’t loud, and it wasn’t too near,
But I opened my eye when it tickled my ear.
Perhaps just a cough, I didn’t quite know,
Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.

My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
and I crept to the door just to see who was near.
Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.

A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old
Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

“What are you doing?” I asked without fear
“Come in this moment, it’s freezing out here!
Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,
You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!”

For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts,
to the window that danced with a warm fire’s light
then he sighed and he said “Its really all right,
I’m out here by choice. I’m here every night”

“Its my duty to stand at the front of the line,
that separates you from the darkest of times.
No one had to ask or beg or implore me,
I’m proud to stand here like my fathers before me.

My Gramps died at ‘Pearl on a day in December,”
then he sighed, “That’s a Christmas ‘Gram always remembers.”
My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ‘Nam
And now it is my turn and so, here I am.

I’ve not seen my own son in more than a while,
But my wife sends me pictures, he’s sure got her smile.
Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
The red white and blue… an American flag.

“I can live through the cold and the being alone,
Away from my family, my house and my home,
I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat,
I can carry the weight of killing another
or lay down my life with my sisters and brothers
who stand at the front against any and all,
to insure for all time that this flag will not fall.”




“So go back inside,” he said, “harbor no fright
Your family is waiting and I’ll be all right.”
“But isn’t there something I can do, at the least,
“Give you money,” I asked, “or prepare you a feast?
It seems all too little for all that you’ve done,
For being away from your wife and your son.”

Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
“Just tell us you love us, and never forget
To fight for our rights back at home while we’re gone.
To stand your own watch, no matter how long.

For when we come home, either standing or dead,
to know you remember we fought and we bled
is payment enough, and with that we will trust.
That we mattered to you as you mattered to us.

Could Obama be somewhat responsible for the slaughter of children in Pakistan?


I’m sure you have heard about the 140 plus children killed in Pakistan by the Taliban. Well, let us dig a little deeper — Shall we?

1st off — A report via the BBC on the attack.

But the TTP said the attack had been masterminded by its military chief in the Peshawar region, who it said had been in touch with the gunmen throughout the assault.   



Now, BHO released Latif Mehsud, the 2nd in command of the Pakistani Taliban in early December 2014. He’s a member of the TTP (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan).

Now. allow me to jog your memories — Obama has some roots in Pakistan. Remember, he traveled there in 1981. What was Happening in 1981 you ask? Here’s a FEW THINGS:


Under Martial law from 1977 – 1985

Harkat-ul-Mujahideen- al-Islami (Urdu: حرکت المجاہدین الاسلامی‎) (abbreviated HUM) is a Pakistan-based Islamic militant group operating primarily in Kashmir.[1] The group have been considered as having links to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda and the group has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Nations, the United Kingdom and the United States. In response the organization changed its name to Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.[1][2][3] The group splintered from Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI), a Pakistani group formed in 1980 to fight the Soviet military in Afghanistan.[4]





A story via ABC News from 2008


“Apparently, according to the Obama campaign, In 1981 — the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University — Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend’s family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India.”





Then there is the old questions that still are not answered — What passport did BHO travel under in 1981? The USA, according to the State Department, had issued a Travel Advisory to Pakistan due to all of the turmoil happening there.

An open letter to Durham County North Carolina District Attorney Roger Echols


December 15, 2014

Re: Current Marches and Protests in Durham



The recent rulings by the Grand Juries from Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, New York have created mayhem throughout our great land. Durham has seen its fair share of such mayhem. We have had protests, marches, vandalism, arrests and highways & roads being blocked & shutdown to traffic. Emergency Services have had to be re-routed due to this nonsense. We have seen these folks disrupt shoppers at the Streets at Southpoint. They have terrorized people attending shows at the DPAC. Last week a truck driver was arrested, and subsequently released by a Durham County magistrate, and all because he was trying to do his job. This is going on its 3rd week now. It’s time to put a HARD STOP to it.

I will urge you to use everything in your power to send a STERN MESSAGE to these Rabble Rousers. You have, in your power, a procedure called “Prosecutorial Discretion” — Our federal leaders have used this term quite often in recent weeks. I urge you to use it.

These folks who have shut down public roadways need to be charged with “Kidnapping”, “False Imprisonment”, and every other major & minor infraction you can come up with. Hit them with everything right on down to ‘Jaywalking’.

Kidnapping??? False Imprisonment??? I know you’re thinking that is a little harsh, but with all due respect sir, that is exactly what they have done. With forethought, and with malice, the protesters planned to hold people against their will & their right to move freely.

According to North Carolina law, [N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-39] — “Any person who shall unlawfully confine, or restrain… any other person 16 years of age or over without the consent of such person, shall be guilty of kidnapping. If the person kidnapped was released in a safe place by the defendant and had not been seriously injured or sexually assaulted, the offense is kidnapping in the second degree and is punishable as a Class E felony.”

“The crime of false imprisonment, sometimes called criminal restraint or criminal confinement, occurs when one person unlawfully restrains someone else without the victim’s consent.”

Please Mr. Echols, step up and do what is right for the entire county of Durham. Don’t be influenced by a few hundred misguided young folks and the outsiders who are causing trouble here in Durham.

And in closing, I will urge you to peruse the ‘Comment Sections’ of local media — Stories on WTVD, WRAL, etc. You will find that the MAJORITY of the people of the Triangle Area are in agreement with the above stated sentiments that this NONSENSE needs to end.






And let us not forget about the IED (Improvised Explosive Device) that was found on December 6th.




If you have protests in your local community, I will urge you to modify this letter and send it to YOUR DA too.

For years and years, we have been enslaved by the IRS. People are FRIGHTENED by the simple mention of those 3  little letters.

The time has come to shake off the SHACKLES of slavery. Take the WHIP of Tyranny away from the Overseer.  Hit him where it hurts…. IN THE POCKETBOOK!

The Proposal:

If you are fortunate enough to still have a job in this economy, change your W-4 withholding to EXEMPT.

The Income Tax (created by the 16th Amendment) is a Complete Fraud and a lie. You can read more on this HERE and HERE.  The 16th was NEVER Legally Ratified by the states so it is NULL & VOID —- Forget what the “Tax People” tell you, they have been indoctrinated to believe a lie.

Mark Twain said it best…




If you don’t feel comfortable about claiming EXEMPT, then at least change your with-holdings to a very HIGH Number… So that each paycheck has less taxes taken out.









To quote a Current North Carolina Statesman, Once the government becomes lawless, it is not just the right, but the responsibility, the Duty, of a free People to react in an equal or more so lawless manner!” ~ G.R. Smith


Stop Feeding the Beast!

Update Sunday December 7, 2014

A screengrab from WTVD’s Story. Emergency Crews had to be Re-Routed due to the roads being blocked, AND the police also found an IED (Improvised Explosive Device).  If someone dies due to this nonsense, let us ADD the charge of “2nd Degree Murder” to the list below.

~~~~ End of Updates ~~~~       

With the recent Grand Jury verdicts out of Missouri and New York, we are seeing much Civil Discourse all across our great land. Peaceful Civil Discourse is one thing, but when these individuals start shutting down the flow of traffic, engaging in vandalism, destruction of property and other Crimes against the Public Peace, it MUST BE QUELLED!

Time has come for us to go “FIFE” on them…. As in Barney Fife —- NIP IT IN THE BUD!!!!!   


I am calling for all Americans — Democrats, Republicans, White, Black, Asian, Indian etc.  — to contact your LOCAL District Attorney and demand that they bring any & all charges against these Protestors. Make it HURT!

I’ve done some homework on the North Carolina law and some suggested charges would be;



* Kidnapping
* Felonious Restraint
* False Imprisonment
* Harassment
* Riot
* Unlawful Assembly
* Rout
* Parole Violation (if any of those involved are on parole)
* Terror of the public / Inciting Fear
* Pedestrians on the highway
* Obstruction of Traffic
* Arson
* Robbery
* Vandalism



Here’s a few recent news stories from the Durham, NC area.







Some of the NC General Statutes

Chapter 14 Article 10
Article 10. Kidnapping and Abduction.
§ 14-39. Kidnapping.
(a) Any person who shall unlawfully confine, restrain, or remove from one place to another, any other person 16 years of age or over without the consent of such person, or any other person under the age of 16 years without the consent of a parent or legal custodian of such person, shall be guilty of kidnapping if such confinement, restraint or removal is for the purpose of:
(1) Holding such other person for a ransom or as a hostage or using such other person as a shield; or
(2)Facilitating the commission of any felony or facilitating flight of any person following the commission of a felony; or
(3)Doing serious bodily harm to or terrorizing the person so confined, restrained or removed or any other person; or
(4)Holding such other person in involuntary servitude in violation of G.S.14-43.12.
(5)Trafficking another person with the intent that the other person be held in involuntary servitude or sexual servitude in violation of G.S. 14-43.11.
(6)Subjecting or maintaining such other person for sexual servitude in violation of G.S. 14-43.13.
§ 14-43.3. Felonious restraint.
A person commits the offense of felonious restraint if he unlawfully restrains another person without that person’s consent, or the consent of the person’s parent or legal custodian if the person is less than 16 years old, and moves the person from the place of the initial restraint by transporting him in a motor vehicle or other conveyance. Violation of this section is a Class F felony. Felonious restraint is considered a lesser included offense of kidnapping.
(1985, c. 545, s. 1; 1993, c. 539, s. 1147; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)






According to North Carolina law, any person who shall unlawfully confine, restrain, or remove from one place to another, any other person 16 years of age or over without the consent of such person, or any other person under the age of 16 years without the consent of a parent or legal custodian of such person, shall be guilty of kidnapping. If such confinement, restraint or removal is for the purpose of:

Holding such other person for a ransom or as a hostage or using such other person as a shield;







False imprisonment is defined as the unlawful restraint of an individual’s personal liberty or freedom of movement[i]. It is the illegal restraint of one’s person against his/her will[ii]. The tort of false imprisonment involves an unlawful restraint on freedom of movement or personal liberty. In order to establish false imprisonment, two essential elements must be proven. They are:

1) Detention or restraint against a person’s will,
2) Unlawfulness of the detention or restraint.

The elements to be considered by the jury in awarding compensatory damages in a false imprisonment case are physical suffering, mental suffering and humiliation, loss of time and interruption of business, reasonable and necessary expenses incurred, and injury to reputation[iii].




Harassment refers to a wide variety of behavior which can violate both civil and criminal laws. What constitutes criminal harassment varies by state, but it generally entails targeting someone else with behavior meant to alarm, annoy, torment or terrorize, and creating reasonable fear in the victim for their safety or the safety of their family.

Over the last 2 weeks or so, Patriots have gathered in our nations capital of DC. Some have been there since day one — Manny Vega to name one — and others have come for a few days but then had to leave — A.J. Watkins & Bill Looman  just to name a couple.

They are there to send a message to the TYRANT in the White House.        

These men & women are our “Modern Day Version of the Magnificent Seven”    


A statement from Mr. A.J. Watkins (one of the Ten)

I just got home from D.C. a little while ago. I spent the weekend supporting, and standing alongside some amazing men and women who are standing up for our constitution, our rights as American citizen’s, and our way of life. Some of these great patriots are veterans, some are civilians such as me, and some were immigrants who are here legally.

I am humbled, yet came home with a sense of honor, pride, and heartbreak. These men and women have been there since day one, they have been mocked, ridiculed, and called names, such as racist, cracker, and several other derogatory remarks… myself included.

I had the privilege of having dinner with these folks, and shared in comradery, stories, and saw them as more than Military, more than Patriots, I saw them as American’s, people who are flesh and bone, people who have emotions, understanding, and truly care for each and every last American Citizen in our great country.

I came home and kissed my wife, and children, and immediately thought about how hard life will be for my children if things continue the way they are… then i thought about how great our country would be if everyone would care for each other the way these men and women care for each and every one of us.

I literally am broken right now. My heart hurts for our country. When people will rush out to buy a material item to save $15 on thanksgiving day and leave their families, and not even consider that there are people who fight for our country over seas, and here on our own soil, at our nations capitol, who don’t get to see their families on thanksgiving, or birthdays, Christmas…  I am truly heartbroken.

We have lost our way, we need to come together and fight back… take our country back… And restore our values, our morals, and our way of life.

I’m sorry if you think this is a rant or a guilt trip. It’s not, but maybe it should be… I am just overwhelmed with emotions.

I want to leave you with this one last thing….

Please reach out to someone you know who is fighting or has fought for your rights, overseas or here at home, and just tell them you appreciate them. Let them know that no matter what, you believe in them, and their cause, and you respect them.

Goodnight, God Bless
