Castro's Torture.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


Hi  Friends,
    The 2 pix above... the first is/ was one of our 240th AHC Aviation Company that I was in on my 2nd tour of duty in Vietnam: 68-70, is a "Gunship."   A Huey type of Helicopter.    I was not in the Gunship platoon, but I flew with "White Flight", one of the 2-- "Slick Platoons" -- which basically carried assault troops [Infantry] in and out of battle, and we had, 2 M-60 machine guns, plus our 'personal weapons'  ---M-16's, and the pilots--usually Warrant Officers, had their .38 Special revolvers, with a 4 inch barrel.   We [our company] had strict rules in case any ship went down in hostile area, for what ever reason... the next ship after him would also go down and rescue the crew of 4 men, etc.   You JUST DID NOT EVER WANT TO BE CAPTURED BY THE NVA or the VIET CONG.   Period ! !   And to make matters worse,  my Helicopter company had a nasty reputation of killing so many of the enemy, that they put a hit list-- a contract out on us, with reward $$$$, if any one of us were captured, we knew it would never go well with us, until we died, and then our horrendous suffering from torture would end.    I promised MYSELF that I would NEVER, ever, be taken alive !   And just standing UP in a fire fight would almost ensure your getting killed.   But some of our Soldiers were found, and repatriated,  but they were pure skin and bones, just like the concentration camps in WW-2,  usually too weak to even walk.  
    So, when we finally came home to the "world" -- the USA, people just walked around totally oblivious to the war so far away in South East Asia, and some even made fun of us, and called us stupid for ever going there....  but no one ever made fun or spit on ME....lol.   However,  unbeknownst to me, and most of us,  I had a healthy dose of   COMBAT  PTSD, but still went thru life, working my ass off to support my family.   But they never really knew or understood what guys like me went thru, and were STILL going thru the rest of their lives.    I THINK that I have come a long way since I got out of the Army, in 30 March 70,  but other Veterans that know me say otherwise,  that we always carry that damn war inside of us, until we die.   Yet, being Saved by the merits of Jesus Christ, to me, is the most/ best/ important thing that I got handed to me in this life time,  because hell would be an even worse loss, IMHO.  

But our 'president obama' had to make a big goofy fool of himself by trying to make nice with Castro...  trying to make himself look good.

We combat Veterans who are now Saved, and have Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, know that we don't have to go thru a 2nd hell...  of sorts, for all eternity.   So when I can contact and talk to another Veteran, and win souls,  I am especially HAPPY !!   I believe that it is a worth while goal that the Lord, my God, spared me for.   More combat, spiritual Soldiers are now needed to fight the Devil, right now !!   Most of you good men already have that good training, so why not use the rest of our short life to do the GOOD WORK of  sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ,  please.

My email:   tschuckman@aol.com  
I am also on Face Book, and my web site/ Blog Link is on this page too.   Email me, and I will  give you my phone number, and we shall talk !  
     And during this Winter season, too many of our depressed combat Veterans take their own lives.  Sad and Terrible !   If you feel this way or know someone in those shoes, please forward a copy of this Blog post to them, and have them get in contact with me, and we shall do more than just pray.   Friends,   I am such an imperfect sinner man, and yet God has not only allowed me to survive to age 67, but to also use ME as a 'simple tool' to help gather many people from all walks of life, to get right with His Son, Jesus, before the Rapture comes ! !   So let me help you if I can, and it won't cost you one thin dime... which is fake anyway... lol.

Warm Regards,
Tom  Schuckman

Castro’s Torture of American POWs in Vietnam

An untold story.

 < Caution-http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/265091/castros-torture-american-pows-vietnam-jamie-glazov >

 < Caution-http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/265091/castros-torture-american-pows-vietnam-jamie-glazov >

Reprinted from Breitbart < Caution-http://www.breitbart.com/ > .
The death of communist tyrant Fidel Castro has yielded much-deserved coverage of the monstrous nature < Caution-http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/11/26/fidel-castro-dead-changes-nothing/http:/Caution-www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/11/26/fidel-castro-dead-changes-nothing/ >  of his tyrannical rule.
What has gone virtually unreported, however, is the direct and instrumental role Castro played in the torture and murder of American POWs in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The story of Castro’s atrocities against American soldiers in this conflict is rarely ever told, least of all by our mainstream media.
During the Vietnam War, Castro sent a gang of his henchmen to run the “Cuban Program” at the Cu Loc POW camp in Hanoi, which became known as “the Zoo.” As Stuart Rochester and Frederick Kiley have documented in their book Honor Bound < Caution-https://www.amazon.com/Honor-Bound-Prisoners-Southeast-1961-1973/dp/1495226743 >  in a chapter entitled “The Zoo, 1967–1969: The Cuban Program and Other Atrocities,” one of the primary objectives of this “program” was to determine how much physical and psychological agony a human being could withstand.
Castro selected American POWs as his guinea pigs. A Cuban nicknamed “Fidel,” the main torturer at the Zoo, initiated his own personal reign of terror. He was described in documents < Caution-http://freebeacon.com/national-security/obama-urged-to-press-havana-on-cuban-interrogation-of-american-pows/ >  based on POW debriefings as “a professional who was trained in psychology and prison control in Russia or Europe.”
Among Fidel’s torture techniques were beatings and whippings over every part of his victims’ bodies, without remission.
Former POW John Hubbell describes the horrifying ordeal < Caution-https://www.amazon.com/Honor-Bound-Prisoners-Southeast-1961-1973/dp/1495226743 >  of Lt. Col. Earl Cobeil < Caution-http://www.cnn.com/US/9911/03/vietnam.pows/ > , an F-105 pilot, as Fidel forced him into the cell of fellow POW Col. Jack Bomar:
The man [Cobeil] could barely walk; he shuffled slowly, painfully. His clothes were torn to shreds. He was bleeding everywhere, terribly swollen, and a dirty, yellowish black and purple from head to toe. The man’s head was down; he made no attempt to look at anyone. . . . He stood unmoving, his head down. Fidel smashed a fist into the man’s face, driving him against the wall. Then he was brought to the center of the room and made to get down onto his knees. Screaming in rage, Fidel took a length of black rubber hose from a guard and lashed it as hard as he could into the man’s face. The prisoner did not react; he did not cry out or even blink an eye. His failure to react seemed to fuel Fidel’s rage and again he whipped the rubber hose across the man’s face. . . . Again and again and again, a dozen times, Fidel smashed the man’s face with the hose. Not once did the fearsome abuse elicit the slightest response from the prisoner. . . . His body was ripped and torn everywhere; hell cuffs appeared almost to have severed the wrists, strap marks still wound around the arms all the way to the shoulders, slivers of bamboo were embedded in the bloodied shins and there were what appeared to be tread marks from the hose across the chest, back, and legs.
Earl Cobeil died < Caution-http://valor.militarytimes.com/recipient.php?recipientid=3510 >  as a result of Fidel’s torture.
Maj. James Kasler was another of Fidel’s victims < Caution-https://www.amazon.com/Honor-Bound-Prisoners-Southeast-1961-1973/dp/1495226743 > , although he survived the torture:

        He [Fidel] deprived Kasler of water, wired his thumbs together, and flogged him until his “buttocks, lower back, and legs hung in shreds.” During one barbaric stretch he turned Cedric [another torturer] loose for three days with a rubber whip. . . . the PW [POW] was in a semi-coma and bleeding profusely with a ruptured eardrum, fractured rib, his face swollen and teeth broken so that he could not open his mouth, and his leg re-injured from attackers repeatedly kicking it.

Castro’s reign of terror against American POWs in Vietnam was just another grotesque reflection of the communist dictator’s barbarism and sadism. After the end of the war, U.S. investigators launched a manhunt < Caution-http://www.wnd.com/2003/02/17288/ >  for the Cuban program torturers. In the midst of their hunt, investigators cataloged over 2,000 Cubans who were in North Vietnam during the late 1960s. Unfortunately, officials failed to positively identify the torturers at “the Zoo” at that time.
Today, some evidence suggests < Caution-http://www.wnd.com/2003/02/17288/ >  that some of the Cuban Program torturers may be living in the United States. The investigations and pursuits < Caution-http://freebeacon.com/national-security/obama-urged-to-press-havana-on-cuban-interrogation-of-american-pows/ >  of these monsters continues – and it is never too late, we may hope, with Donald Trump entering office, to bring them to justice. But it will require intense effort on our part. It is the least we can do for Lt. Col. Earl Cobeil, and for all those who shared his torment and pain at the hands of Fidel and his communist monsters.

'Living in a Death Spiral?'

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


Hello Dear Friends and Readers all over the World !
    Ha!  The air temp. U.P. here where I exist is only 9 degrees above today... toasty !   I drove all the way to Green Bay, WI., and got lost three [3] times, and so I vowed to buy a GPS unit before I even make that trip again to the G.B. -VAMC- Dental clinic, there !   I didn't eat all day until now,  3 PM.   I am just totally pissed off at myself ---unable to meet the challenges, and very few people-- when you ask for simple directions -- don't even know their OWN CITY !!   Asking the female dental secretary directions  at the clinic was an 'effort in futility,'  LOL.   So then I asked her to put a MAN on the phone, and he gave me PERFECT directions... but the wrong directions...lol.   Dang!  Now I am laughing at myself, as I am proof reading this rant... LOL> 
      For these reasons and more,  I have come to believe that most people in the USA have been dumbed down by a few reasons that make logical sense to me....  duh.   The water we drink,  [and sugary soda !], the food we eat, the 'medicine' that we swallow every day that poisons our brain... [me included],  any house hold aerosol / spray, plus the nasty water we shower with !!   I don't trust any immune injections for the flu/ colds, at all !   I don't much trust the Gov't or the  VA !!   But in the Army, at Fort Campbell, KY., they inoculated us for just about every disease known to man ... and then some !   Some of the guys had bad reactions to them.    My sister, Linda, was the National President of the Autism Society for a few years, etc., and she had the first 2 kids turn out to be super intelligent, both college grads,    but the 3rd came down with Autism....  so you figure it out, and I am sure she has her own respected opinions, too.  
    Personally,   I have studied healing Herbs, and Fasting for health reasons, for more than 40 years, because I never trusted 'doctors',  although a few of the good ones helped save my life a few times.   I surely don't have all the answers, and after today, I just feel like a big, old dumb ass, age 67...  going on 97... LOL.   I used to have a printer, so I could just print from my Personal Computer, the 'trip--tik' and directions,  but very soon I will buy a good GPS unit ! ! !
      Years ago,  schools and parents taught the young ones the proper way to speak English,  but not anymore.   Now days I guess all they have is coloring books, crayons, and cell phones, with "texting" on it,  but it's not really pure English,  it's sort of a 'ghetto short hand', IMHO.    Ha!   The Army/ Military had a fool proof way of communicating where people only made the bare minimum of mistakes.   People's lives were and are at stake !  
     But ever since Obama snuck into the WH,  talking sh** all the time came into vogue, ghetto 'English' where they never understood the term, "Enunciation," and still don't.   And this all ties into the piss poor work ethic, too, with school drop outs, and too young, teen pregnancies, and abortion.... life is cheap, attitude, all contributing to the economic meltdown that this article is telling us about.

Now,  personally,  just think about me, getting lost in a big city and not knowing how to get out, with my gas supply running low, and 2 hours drive from my 'castle' of safety, where ever that would be.    Let's face it folks -- no matte who great and good our next president is, and will be,  the time will come for the whole world to 'PAY THE PIPER,' when we cannot borrow our way out anymore, or print more money in the back room !   Now, do you think that someone is going to volunteer that information and 'start a super big panic ??'   Folks like the Obama's and their rich friends will have already been on their Jets and out of this country before it falls !   Hillary and her crew will be on the next Jet.  

I was listening to a Christian radio station on the way home today, and what it really means to be a disciple of Christ.   It sounded like few of us now days even measure up to that high standard, and so I questioned myself, again.   Even many churches in the USA don't even measure up to being a true follower of Jesus Christ, and so many people [mostly those who don't have the Holy Spirit, and never opened the KJV Bible] that attend churches regularly, are missing the TARGET !   Hey!  that IS the definition of SIN ---- "Missing the target of perfection."   It's just something that we are 'born- into', and inherited from our first parents,  Adam and Eve.   But most of the schools now days teach that Adam and Eve is a goofy fable/ fairy tale !     The kids have no shame  --- because their parents don't have any shame, or knowledge, or sense.   Most people on earth are already LOST, and the majority of people on earth WILL BE 'LEFT BEHIND,'  mark my word.   Now, how do I even know this ??  Email me:   tschuckman@aol.com

Are You “Living In a Death Spiral”? These 6 States Will Collapse During the Next Recession

Being on the hook is not going to be pretty when interest rates are raised back up, and debts come due. At a personal level, it will mean more stress and juggling to make ends meet. For the larger economy, it will mean cities and states unable to meet obligations or balance their budgets – ending in bankruptcy, and bailouts. Meanwhile, millions of people are relying on that money to keep coming in order to survive. Something is going to go very wrong.
Relying upon government to function and send you money is not a secure plan.
The mathematics are terrifying and dismal, and so is being caught up in these collapsing states.
In the next phase of the financial crisis, the debt supercycle will become the most defining feature of the big hurt that will fall on nearly everyone.
That’s the dire warning that Goldman Sachs issued about what they termed the Third Wave of the global collapse. But it hasn’t come, at least not yet:
This wave is characterised by rock-bottom commodities prices, stalling growth in China and other emerging-markets economies, and low global inflation, Goldman Sachs analysts led by Peter Oppenheimer said in a big-picture note.
This triple whammy has its roots in the response to the first two waves of crisis — the banking collapse and European sovereign-debt crisis — and it is all part of the so-called debt supercycle of the past few decades.
Unfunded liabilities for pensions and other state benefits are threatening the security and future of an entire generation of retiring, hardworking Americans.
The debt will be shifted for as long as possible… but eventually, someone will have to come to terms with it. The black hole totals up to huge sums of money; no one can pay; and the system is bankrupted, or services rendered become inadequate and farcical.
Forbes contributor William Baldwin describes the acute problem of “death spiral states,” which could actually be as bad as it sounds. It affects dozens of cities and municipalities as well.
Does your state have more takers than makers? Check it out.
California has a powerful economy, with 14 million private-sector jobs. It also has burdens: welfare recipients (12.6 million), generously paid government employees (2.1 million) and people collecting government pensions (1.3 million).
Add up the numbers. There are 114 clients drawing from the government for every 100 people chipping in by working outside the government and paying taxes. We’re calling this the Feedme Ratio. Six states have a number over 100.
These states are at risk of going into a downward spiral in the next recession. The burdens will remain but too many of the providers—employers in the private sector—might shrink or decamp.
Right now, the biggest risks for a bankruptcy or collapse is in the these states, based upon the ratio between what Baldwin terms “makers” and “takers.” Basically, the socialist state is enveloping all prosperity:
• New Mexico – 148 dependents per private sector worker
• West Virginia – 116 dependents per private sector worker
• California – 114 dependents per private sector worker
• Mississippi – 111 dependents per private sector worker
• New York – 108 dependents per private sector worker
• Arkansas – 103 dependents per private sector worker
Detroit and Chicago top the lists of cities who wouldn’t be healthy in the ratio of makers/takers either, and would crumble in a debt crunch.
You can check on your state via this interactive map, though it is dated slightly to 2015.

A score under 100 means that the state has a net number of providers, and is theoretically on more solid ground. However, the pressures are endemic n the system, and no state is immune. For instance, Texas has a healthy score of 66.7; yet, the city of Dallas just announced that it is suspending pensions payments to city rescue workers and employees. There’s a serious disconnect.
Once things go downhill, violence, crime, looting, riots and the like become chronic problems. The police state presence is also an issue, and society goes on edge.
Everyone can feel the sinking depths, and order is about to implode. When things go primal, you do not want to be around to get caught up in it.
Being inside a major city on the day that the ATMs stop spitting out cash, or EBT cards don’t work will be an incredibly dangerous day. Relying upon government bureaucracy and functioning technology to meet your vital needs is a good position to be in during an emergency situation – be it economic crisis, hurricane, power grid failure or something else.
Joel Skousen described in great detail how to avoid the urban areas that will become completely dysfunctional nightmares at the first sign of a major emergency.
Your retreat should be strategically chosen to lay outside of certain regions, military targets and fragile climates. Knowledge of the back roads is essential to planning a route that won’t leave you stranded on the highway in endless gridlock.
Above all, it is advisable to avoid mass populated areas, especially big cities on the East and West Coast. People are prone to panic, and will be easily cut off from essential services become desperate. There are far too many bad apples in that ratio for any good to result.
Avoidance is key – and that is why living in a “death spiral” state like California or New York could be a major liability during a crisis, or alternately a prolonged collapse.
CalPers pension… a massive black hole that is merely carving a path for many failed states to come.
The future is austere if this equation isn’t balanced out:

Tom Chatham warns about the abrupt change that is coming home to roost in America. Things can get really bad, really quick.
But really, most of us don’t know how bad it will get:
Americans that have only known the post WWII prosperity are ill equipped and educated to deal with depression level living. Easy credit and instant gratification have created a nation of whining, self absorbed, entitlement minded people with no moral or mental toughness.
Doug Casey believes we are headed for what he calls a super depression created by the ending of a debt super cycle. The bigger the debt cycle the bigger the depression that follows. That’s how reality works and most people are not prepared for reality.
When this depression, which has already started, gets momentum, it will overwhelm the plans of a society that is expecting to get things like social security, pensions and payouts from retirement plans they have paid into for many years. All of those things will disappear almost overnight and leave society gasping and stupefied over what to do.
The big reveal is coming: inside that great big old lock box… is just another I.O.U.
Are you prepared for the future, and all the economic uncertainty it could bring?
