Did they die in vain?

The deaths of 2,977 victims of unimaginable horror and the hundreds of firefighters, police and medics who died trying to save them will haunt their families and friends and sadden all of us for the rest of our lives.

did they die in vain?

On the 20th anniverary of the deadliest terrorist attack in world history, this man…

biden admitting terrorists

…is allowing tens of thousands of unvetted Afghans into America, incuding several hundred with known terrorist connections. He is also letting murderers, drug dealers, child traffickers and an unknown number of terrorists across the U.S.-Mexican border without background checks.

Biden’s open-border madness is tantamount to telling the bereaved families whose loved ones suffered terrifying deaths that they died in vain. Their murders will not only go unavenged — the mastermind behind the attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and four others being held at Guantanamo Bay still haven’t been tried — but more terrorist attacks will again tear America apart.

AIDING AND ABETTING THE ENEMY

This president, this confused ‘commander in chief’ will have aided and abetted the next terror attack in America — and there will be a next. The country is fast becoming overrun with religious fanatics whose sole mission is to kill Americans.

And the submissive compliance of members of his government magnifies the crisis to a catastrophic level.

Is Biden clinically insane? We know he is in a rapidly advancing stage of dementia, but opening America’s borders to terrorists and felons is the worst criminal perfidy ever committed by a president.

This betrayal of trust by a president towards the people of his own county is an unprecedented act of treachery.

Singers scared to sing the truth

Scared to sing the truth

‘This ain’t the freedom we’ve been fighting for.’

Songs are a great influence on society and its people, but most singers these days are scared to write and sing the truth about America going all to hell.

They’re afraid of being cancelled.

Not Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter Jeffrey Steele.

THIS AIN’T THE FREEDOM
Jeffrey Steele

“Rock stars used to be anarchists,” said Steele. “They used to be anti-government.”

But in the current era of corporate and government lies, singers aren’t “saying things in their music about what’s really going on” in America.

And Steele has a problem with what’s going on in America. Freedom and individual rights are being canceled by left-wing fanatics. Historic monuments and statues are being torn down. American servicemen and women are being slaughtered because government leaders only care about themselves and their obsession with power. American citizens and their brave allies are being left behind enemy lines. 

You can bet your ass Steele has a problem with that. “I’ve always written from the heart,” he said. And if people who have been brainwashed by an autocratic government try to cancel him, it’s not going to work.

‘A BROKEN BLEEDING MAN’

Steele has released a single called ‘Afghanistan’ about the Biden administration’s heartless and incompetent withdrawal that caused the deaths of 12 Marines and a Navy medic and stranded thousands of American citizens and allies to face tortuous deaths.

And here I am
a broken bleeding man
in between a sky of angels and an ancient land

“Our men and women were dying over there for twenty years and the government left them behind,” said Steele. Nobody was coming to help them. What is that?”

There is no truth in our government on the highest level, he added. “I don’t know where you get the truth from anymore. It’s certainly not the mainstream media. We know that.”

THIS AIN’T TE FREEDOM
Aaron Lewis

Steele collaborated with singer-songwriter Ira Dean and country singer Aaron Lewis to write a patriotic anthem, ‘Am I the Only One,’ calling out politicians and extremist groups for the country veering far left.

Am I the only one, willin’ to fight

For my love of the red and white

And the blue, burnin’ on the ground

Another statue comin’ down in a town near you

Watchin’ the threads of Old Glory come undone

Am I the only one?

The song has been ignored and even condemned by the corporate mainstream media and radio stations for its conservative fervor.

“If Aaron Lewis puts out a song about American patriotism, Steele said, “he gets completely shot down by the media.”

That ain’t right.

This is the song:

General Ripper on 42nd Street

Stanley Kubrick’s black comedy of 1964, Dr Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, was back on TV this week. Terrific movie. Sterling Hayden’s General Jack Ripper and his “precious bodily fluids” madness. The great George C. Scott. And the three roles played by Peter Sellers.

It was the first movie I saw in America after arriving in New York City by cargo vessel in the summer of 1964.

I saw it in a movie theater on 42nd Street. A young man barely out of his teens, alone in the most exciting city in the world, living in a bare-bones room on 48th Street with a few resident cockroaches, and I couldn’t have been happier.

A few years later, in the late 1970s, I was staying at the old Tudor Hotel on East 42nd Street across the street from Grand Central Station (the hotel is now called Westgate New York Grand Central). To me, at that time, Grand Central was the center of the universe. Still is.

I was taking the elevator down to the street. At one of the floors, Sterling Hayden got in, just the two of us in the elevator. He was a tall (6 feet 5), imposing man with an impressive beard at the time. He said hello and I said hello, and then, nervous as hell, I told him how much I liked his role in Dr Strangelove.

He thanked me and then in his rapid-fire voice told me, in a frank way I found surprising for two strangers in an elevator, that it was a difficult part to play. “We did a lot of takes,” he said. “I wanted to get it right, you see.”

”You got it right,” I told him. And then I asked him if he had a new new role coming up.

“I got something up in Canada,” he said, “that’s where I’m heading.” It turned out he was referring to the 1981 comedy Gas with Susan Anspach and Donald Sutherland — not one of his better roles. One of his best was the tough guy in the 1950 film noir The Asphalt Jungle. But the best in my opinion was as General Jack Ripper.

I came across this clip of Sterling Hayden talking about his role as Gen. Ripper. It took me back to a great time in my life.
