Tom's Journal.

This is from my good buddy, Bob !  WW-2,  Marines.  Please check him out !

    Hey Tom, this is what we do.  A couple of us spend most of our awake hours on this project.  We enjoy contact with Veterans from all eras, and all services.  Have a lot of good back 'n forths with many Vets.
        Our small group of retired Veterans makes metalized film window stickers and magnetic vehicle plaques honoring Veterans of all eras. 
        They are called VetSignias and are designed to give Veterans 'every-day'  visibility.  VetSignias honor Veterans from WWII to The War on Terror.  All VetSignias can be viewed at .  Example:
        We make special cost arrangements for Veterans groups so many use VetSignias for reunions, post activities, fundraisers,etc.
        We made the first VetSignias for a small group of Veterans who were planning a Special Event for Memorial Day Weekend, 1993.  Our original commitment was to make something that would honor the Veterans from KOREA and VIETNAM who didn't get the proper Welcome Home. 
         We expected it to be a one time thing, but several newspapers wrote articles about the Memorial Day Event and the VetSignias.  The word spread, through newspapers and Veterans' organizations, across the country.  Here it is, twenty years later, and we are still sending VetSignias to proud U.S. Veterans.Tens-of-thousands use the bright silver VetSignias to show how they served. 

        There have been several conflicts since that time.  We have increased the number of VetSignias  to honor Veterans of those conflicts.

        The VetSignia  group is not a business. Profits were never intended and are not expected.  We do have to stay around the break-even point to keep the project going and have been able to do that for 20 years.
       That's what keeps us ol' goats out of trouble and off the streets.

Reagan's cure for disinformationCongressman tells inside story of how president
saw through brutal dictator’s disguise

President Ronald Reagan was so impressed by the shocking revelations of top Soviet bloc defector Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa – author of a widely read new book titled “Disinformation” – that he altered his foreign policy toward a key communist nation, having been clued in to the clever disinformation campaign that had fooled his predecessor, Jimmy Carter.

Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., currently in his 17th term in Congress, worked with Reagan during the Cold War. In an exclusive interview with WND-TV, Wolf recalled one particular meeting he, Sen. Jesse Helms and a few others had with the president, during which they discussed conditions in communist Romania.

As seen in the photo above, Wolf gave Reagan a copy of Pacepa’s first book, titled “Red Horizons: The True Story of Nicolae & Elena Ceausescu’s Crimes, Lifestyle, and Corruption.” Before defecting to the U.S. in 1978, Pacepa had been the powerful head of Romanian foreign intelligence and right-hand man of the famous dictator. His surprise defection caused Ceausescu to have a nervous breakdown and to order assassination squads to follow Pacepa to America and kill him. Fortunately, various attempts on his life over the years, spurred on by the dictator's multimillion rewards for Pacepa’s death, all failed. Today, at 84, Pacepa is a proud American citizen and lives in the U.S., under a CIA-protective identity.

In the late 1970s, before Pacepa blew the whistle, President Carter embraced Ceausescu as a more moderate, enlightened, pro-Western type of communist, the kind “we could do business with,” in contrast with Moscow’s “hardliners.” Carter was convinced helping this "independent" Romania was a key to breaking up the U.S.S.R. After Reagan was elected, even his own foreign policy advisers had been divided, some believing Romania was a moderate county the U.S. could "work with" against Moscow.

However, as Pacepa devastatingly reveals in “Red Horizons,” the “moderate” Ceausescu was all a big lie, a calculated ruse, a “disinformation” campaign expressly created to fool the credulous Americans.

In reality, as Wolf told WND, life in Romania “was darker than Moscow,” the dictator Ceausescu uniquely brutal and maniacal. Reagan found Pacepa’s revelations so compelling and persuasive that he changed policy towards Romania just one day after receiving his copy of “Red Horizons,” a book he reportedly came to refer to as “my bible for dealing with dictators.” Wolf was ultimately instrumental in freeing Pacepa's daughter Dana from Romania, traveling to Bucharest and pulling off the rescue at considerable personal risk.

Reading to WND-TV from Reagan’s diary, Wolf quoted the president reflecting on Romania’s supposed “moderation”: "Apparently that is a sham,” wrote Reagan, “and their violation of human rights are worse than in the Soviet Union."

"So,” Wolf told WND, “Reagan gets Pacepa's book on the 12th – and I talked to people who were on an airplane with Reagan, and he said 'Reagan was talking about Pacepa's book' – [and] the next day, Reagan takes away MFN!"

At the time, Most Favored Nation, or MFN, trading status was a big deal, lowering tariffs and conferring better trade conditions on recipients, and thus used by the free world as leverage against communist nations.

In the video clip below, Wolf reads an excerpt from Reagan's diary, describing in his own words how the former president changed Romania policy by revoking its MFN status on humanitarian grounds and why he placed so much emphasis on morality in his foreign policy.

Watch video here.

Fast-forward to the end of Reagan’s time as president: On Christmas Day 1989, just weeks after the Berlin Wall came down, the brutal Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife Elena were executed after a trial whose charges came almost word-for-word out of Pacepa’s book “Red Horizons,” the contents of which many Romanians first heard when it was read over “Radio Free Europe.”

Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa is the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence officer ever to defect to the West and is the author of the new WND Books bestseller "Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism." His co-author is law professor Ronald Rychlak.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey says of Pacepa’s new book, “Disinformation will change the way you look at intelligence, foreign affairs, the press and much else besides.” The book reveals, among many other things:

    •  how the Soviet Union played a huge, through unreported, role in instigating worldwide Islamic jihad by translating the notorious anti-Semitic forgery "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" into Arabic and spreading thousands of copies throughout the Arab-Muslim Middle East;

    •  how communist disinformation specialists created a narrative that U.S. soldiers were daily committing atrocities in Vietnam, a disinformation narrative picked up and spread by John Kerry, Obama's secretary of state, when he testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee in the early 1970s;

    •  how, after the Kennedy assassination, the KGB worked overtime to make Americans believe their own government (the CIA) had been responsible for the shooting;

    •  how Pope Pius XII, responsible for saving more Jews from the Nazis than anyone else, are praised by everyone from Churchill to Einstein during his life, was turned into a "Nazi sympathizer" through the magic of KGB disinformation.

Order Lt. Gen. Pacepa's brand new book, "Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategy for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion and Promoting Terrorism." or get both the book and DVD, "Disinformation: The Secret Strategy To Destroy The West" together – and save!

Powerful new film documentary also just released

In addition to the blockbuster book "Disinformation" from WND Books, WND Films released a brand-new, feature-length (120-minute) companion film titled "Disinformation: The Secret Strategy for Destroying the West," written and directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Stan Moore.

Besides dramatically profiling the life and revelations of Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the two-disc DVD documentary features new interviews with many experts, including co-author Ronald Rychlak, former CIA chief James Woolsey, author David Horowitz, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, U.S. Congressman Frank Wolf, historian Michael Ledeen, journalist Arnaud de Borchgrave, defense analyst Frank Gaffney, Nina Khrushcheva, great-granddaughter of Nikita Khrushchev, deputy undersecretary of defense Jed Babbin, assistant secretary of defense Richard Perle, Vladimir Tismaneanu, director, Center for the University of Maryland's Study of Post-Communist Societies, Michael Maloof, former security policy analyst for the U.S. Defense Department, Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, terrorism expert and director of American Center for Democracy, David Kupelian, author and managing editor of WND, Gary Krupp, founder and president of Pave the Way Foundation, Yuri Yarim-Agaev, physicist and Soviet dissident, Wayne Barnes, former FBI agent, Roger L. Simon, novelist and screenwriter, Darnelle Mason, missionary to Romania, Palm Beach Rabbi Leonid Feldman and Romanian-born NASA aerospace scientist Constantin Rauta.

The film documentary dramatically depicts how disinformation – the evil "science" of deception that so disastrously shaped our world during the last generation – is still very much alive in the current generation under Barack Obama.

The book and film can be purchased separately, or bundled together at a very special reduced price.
