Do little boys still have heroes?

Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, … He was 86.

The first two WWII movies I remember seeing were Up Periscope  (1959) with James Garner as a US Navy frogman, and when I later saw the earlier Destination Tokyo (1943) and compared the two films I was more impressed with Garner’s film.   It was (to my adolescent eye) more realistic, “Destination Tokyo” seemed fake (I hadn’t encountered the phrase “shot on the Studio Backlot” yet).   I couldn’t see myself a hero like Cary Grant, (too reserved), but James Garner I could try.   That summer on Cape Cod when I was snorkeling and skin diving underwater, I was really trying to surprise the Nips!  I suppose little boys are discouraged to emulate men like Garner today; too straight, too big and tall, and of course too straight.51LnJmrW3PL._SL500_

I liked every movie I saw with James Garner in it and I never missed Maverick.  My late wife loved him, Rockford Files was her favorite show, she never missed it.  James Garner was one of the men that she threw at me from time to time; “My next husband will be a Welshman like Richard Burton“, or “My next husband will be able to grow a decent mustache like Tom Selleck” and (of course) “My next husband will be hunky like James Garner!“.

When Garner was doing Nichols he gave an interview where he said that he definitely wasn’t a comedian, he didn’t do comedy.  He did humor, he didn’t want big laughs, he preferred to invoke a lengthy grin along with a chuckle.

I can’t think of any actors today that can fill his shoes.  Or any US studios interested in making shows like the Rockford Files.  That’s all, I’m heading over to the video library and see if I still have a copy of Up Periscope.  Lieutenant Braden, you may leave the boat.   RIP, Jimmy.  Say Hi to Rocky for me.

Update:  Item of interest, James Garner’s obit for the AP was written by Bob Thomas, apparently a prolific writer of obituaries for many years.  At Big Hollywood they added the detail that Thomas predeceased Garner by four months,  I wish they had asked Garner to write a obit on Thomas, nice symmetry.

Pot starts to boil.

US Marine Corps commandant openly blasts CIC Obama

USMC Gen. James AmosOn July 15, 2014, speaking at the Brookings Institute think tank in Washington, DC, the Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, 4-star Gen. James Amos, openly and publicly criticized Commander-In-Chief Barack Hussein Obama.

Speaking at the Brookings Institute, Amos criticized the Obama administration for:

1. Paving the way for the emergence of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) by completely withdrawing American troops in 2011. Amos said: “I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don’t think we’d be in the same shape we’re in today.”

2. Failing to live up to U.S. obligations around the world. Amos said: “We may think we’re done with all of these nasty, thorny, tacky little things that are going on around the world — and I’d argue that if you’re in that nation, it’s not a tacky, little thing for you. We may think we’re done with them, but they’re not done with us. We’re probably the only country in the world that has the resources and the capability to be able to do some of this that others can’t.”

3. Forfeiting gains made in Iraq and Afghanistan for which U.S. troops had fought and sacrificed. Referring to the fall of the Anbar province in Iraq, which Marines won in 2010 and in which 852 Marines were killed and another 8,500 injured, Amos said “It breaks our hearts. They believed that they’d made a difference.”

Interesting and very courageous of him.  But lets hope that it doesn’t come to US Military actually taking any action that effects the executive or legislative branches of our government.  That would mean that the US had descended to the level of a third world banana republic.   Our military has great values and an admirable culture but it’s not transferable to the rest of the US at large by force.

Hope that the current resistance to the Regime by citizen groups and growing political clout of conservative politicians is enough to Change things back.  If not it may come to war.  But let it be arms of free citizens raised in their own defense and to secure a future for their children.  Arms raised to stop the thief of their means to satisfy the indolent, to smash the barriers to free enterprise and tear down the banners of socialism and collectivism.

Case Omega

The case for Obama’s impeachment: The Constitution’s remedy for a lawless, imperial president
By Sarah Palin

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/07/11/case-for-obamas-impeachment-constitutions-remedy-for-lawless-imperial-president/#

The next time you hear politicians denounce Barack Obama as a lawless, imperial president with a scandal-riddled administration, ask them what they’re going to do about it. Their gnashing of teeth over Obama’s self-granted omnipotence is repetitive.
Let’s agree with our ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who said there is nothing more corrupting, nothing more destructive than the exercise of unlimited power. We understand the problem. The only way for politicians to fix it is with a little less talk and a lot more action.
The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It’s impeachment.
The only thing necessary to transform America into something unrecognizable is for good men to do nothing!
To be clear, “high crimes and misdemeanors” are not necessarily ordinary criminal offenses. Our Framers used the term to signify a dereliction of duty, and the first duty of the president is to enforce our laws and preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution. Continue reading

Guest Post: Roslyn, Who is Ed Mezvinshy?

I did not know this…………….
DO YOU KNOW THIS GUY?

guest 1

He is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.
Then you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?”

Well, he is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.

He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.

He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.

He and the Clintons were friends and very politically intertwined for many years.

Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.

In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.

In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.

Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.

He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.
After serving less than five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.

To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.

About now you are saying, “So what!”

Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.
guest 2

That’s right; Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.

Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5 million dollar NYC apartment (after being married in George Soros’ mansion).

Has anyone heard mention of any of this in any of the media?

If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in-law, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.

And yet liberals say there are no double standards in political reporting.

And people are already talking about Hillary as our next President!

And then there is possibly Chelsea for president in our future!

The cycle never ends!

Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular.

John: By the way, I checked this on Snopes…

Claim:   The father of Chelsea Clinton’s husband is a former congressman who pled guilty to fraud charges.

TRUE
