Tribute to the Retirement of Captain Mike Rosen, USMC, "Our Man in Fallujah"

He joined the Marines because he was devastated at the lives lost in the Marine barracks bombing in 1983 by Islamist terrorists. He vowed to protect his country.
He served in peacetime and in war time. He was deployed and wounded in Iraq during the second battle of Fallujah known as Operation Phantom Fury. He’s been “Our Man in Fallujah” since 2004, doing on-air reports with The Victoria Taft Show.
He’s Captain Mike Rosen. A finer man you will never meet. A man of integrity.  A man who sought peace at every turn and who is an excellent husband and father. Here is our tribute to him as he moves to civilian life.
I’m happy that there are many of these men in our armed forces. He, however, is a special contributor to our program.
Please enjoy some of the highlights of his retirement ceremony on Saturday in Lacey, Washington.

NSFW: Portland’s Freak Show Naked Bike Ride in Broad Daylight

THIS POST IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

Every year I bring up the Portland Naked Bike ride and ask, “why don’t the cops do something?” There IS a law against indecent exposure, ya know. In order for naked people to be told to put their clothes on, there has to be a showing that the nakedness is meant to titillate and that the nekkid person is doing it for some sort of sexual pleasure. I think I can speak with unqualified certainty that these kooks are getting their sexual jollies from shocking (even) Portlanders.

The Portland Police Commissioner, Sam Adams, has given the Naked Bike Ride a parade permit for a couple of years now. However that parade permit is for the night time event– you know, when the kids are in bed.


But for the last couple of years a large contingent have begun riding in the day time  for shock value and to get their jollies. They need to knock it off. It’s not cute, it’s not funny, it’s disgusting. It’s one thing to leave your dangling participle out there at night, it’s quite another to subject others to it during the day.

Maybe it’s just a precursor to the freak show that is the “Gay” Pride parade, but that’s no excuse.(more on the gay pride idiocy in another post).

I don’t like the Naked Bike Ride either nighttime nor daytime, but the cops should be directed to put a stop the day time event at the very least. Just because France, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and who knows who else does it doesn’t mean we should.

This guy left his links out there to share, so I am. See if you don’t agree, that it’s about time there was a crack down–so to speak–on AT LEAST the DAYTIME Naked Bike Ride:

Rees Lloyd: Panetta/Obama Celebrating Their Military Devolution

Longtime Democrat Party all-purpose progressive political panderer Leon Panetta, now Secretary of Defense in the Barack Hussein Obama hope-and-change regime, has issued, on behalf of Obama, an unprecedented nationally publicized “thank you” to one class of members of the military — the so-called BLTG mix of persons who by choice or genes (as they argue) have chosen to distinguish themselves from others by sexual conduct deviating from the historical norm, i.e., Bi-Sexual, Lesbian, Transexual, Gay members of the military. There is even a BLTG Pride Month. 

Thus, Obama has changed the military culture not by merely treating homosexuality as a non-issue (“Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell”), but, rather, by approving, endorsing, and now celebrating and devisively giving special status to homosexuals–setting them apart for praise from others in military service, like freaks who need special petting and praise  for their unique differentness, and throwing a spotlight on it.


Consider the outrage if a president had singled out for a “special thanks” our “Heterosexual Military Personnel.” Or promoted a “Heterosexual Pride Month.” 

And pity the poor bestialitists who have been left out again, even by Obama. Perhaps their voting bloc is not as powerful, or wealthy, as the homosexual bloc, and thus not as entitled to Panetta’s pandering and procuring for Obama in search of votes. Well, there are months left before the election and maybe Obama’s thinking will “evolve” to endorse and celebrate bestiality, too.  Every vote counts, after all. Its the liberal progressive way. Inclusively unprincipled. 

The homosexualization of the military is an extremely serious issue,  not something to be glibly treated as a kind of liberal sexual cultural salad in which all sexual predilictions are just merrily tossed together in the military circumstance, so different from the civilian culture.

Liberal “progressives” enamored of the concept of open homosexuality in the military forget or ignore the fact that there is little or no privacy in the military ranks of enlisted men and women. 

One of the most heinous aspects of Obama’s homosexualization of the military in which he, himself, never deigned to serve in defense of America, is subjecting young military recruits as targets of opportunity of predatory homosexual non-commissioned and commissioned officers — who have absolute power and control over the careers and very lives of enlisted personnel. 

The military trials of homosexual non-coms and officers who have used their power over the troops to inflict themselves upon subordinate troops sexually, reveal horrific homosexual assaults– homosexual conduct that the liberal mainstream media almost never reports. (For but a sample of those sexual horrors experienced by enlisted personnel victimized by  homosexual officers and non-coms, see “Whistle-blower Magazine’s” special issue, “Dropping the ‘H-Bomb,” at www.WND.com.)

If Obama, Panetta, and fellow-traveling liberal “progressives” really believe and celebrate imposing open homosexuality on enlisted personnel in the military, in which there is almost no privacy in sleeping quarters, latrines, shower rooms, etc., especially in the field, then Obama, Panetta, and the liberals in Congress and the White House should set the example and be ordered and compelled to shower in the Congressional Gym with Barney Frank. (Now, there’s a liberal progressive big- government uber alles image to contemplate).

Panetta’s celebration of the open  homosexualization of the American military by Obama ( one must ask: is it something he learned to appreciate when living in the man-boy-loving Muslim culture from the age of 6-10, and attended school as a registered Muslim in Indonesia when his name was Barry Soetero?)  is evidence, once again, that it is a long road from President George Washington, who drummed out of the Revolutionary Army a homosexual officer who sexually assaulted an enlisted man, to President Barack Hussein Obama, and all down hill.

Concisely stated: Putting openly homosexual officers and non-coms in charge of enlisted men and women in whom they have a same-sex interest, makes as much sense as putting homosexual predator Jerry Sandusky in charge of  young boys in the shower room.
