Yet Another Tea Bag Busted in Stolen Honor Ruse

I have seen guys try this before, especially at some bar trying to impress the other guys. Guys who really did serve in the Armed Forces, and especially those who served in one of our many wars know exactly what those ribbons and medals mean, and the human and physical costs of earning them. This pastor appears to be a little whack for even the Liberty University religious right wing crowd. Especially after the old – “a black guy robbed me” ruse…

Pastor caught lying about ‘black robber’ busted again for pretending to be a Navy SEAL

A U.S. Army veteran noticed a curious thing at a recent convocation event at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University. A graying man was wearing military dress uniform and badges that indicate what seemed like an impossible accumulation of achievements and commendations.

The man identified himself as Mark Joston, the Friendly Atheist reports. Joston had insignia on his uniform identifying him as a Navy SEAL with four purple hearts, an Afghanistan and Iraq veteran, and rear admiral for the CIA’s special ops.

Turns out, those unbelievable achievements were just that — unbelievable.

The man was none of those things, nor was his name Mark Joston. He was Pastor George Hunley of Louisa, Virginia, who earlier this year was arrested for falsely reporting to police he was robbed and shot by a black man.

Veterans were quick to detect inconsistencies in Hunley’s story.

“This guy made a big mistake by putting on that Navy Cross if he did not earn it because there are only a dozen or so who have earned the distinguished Navy Cross during the war on terror,” writes Michael Swaney at Popular Military. “There is no Mark Joston or “Josten” to be found on any list of Navy Cross recipients. However, there are three unidentified Navy SEALS who earned the Navy Cross during the global war on terrorism. So we cross referenced his name with the Navy Silver Star recipients and there is also no Mark Joston or Josten.”

After Swaney wrote about Joston, his readers pointed out a Raw Story post from February in which Hunley led police on a fabricated story that he’d been robbed and shot by an interracial couple he’d pulled over to try and assist on the road. His story fell apart at that time because police couldn’t find any evidence Hunley had been shot, and also found his wallet and checkbook, which he claimed had been taken in the incident.

Another case of a delusional right winger duping Faux News into believing he was a CIA expert is progressing in the courts.

Islamic Services At The Pentagon

American soldiers come in all colors, they can be from anywhere and are a cross section of the peoples from all of the varied places Americans come from…

American Muslim Soldiers at Prayers

At Pentagon 9/11 site, Muslims pray without objection

Inside the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial Chapel, a female Air Force sergeant unlaced her combat boots, set them under the pews and slipped her black veil around her hair and over her camouflaged uniform.

The men pushed back the altar for Christian services to make room for their large green prayer rugs; then they moved the podium from one side of the room to the other so that the congregation would be facing Mecca.

“Allah akhbar,” called out Ali Mohammed, a contractor who works at the Pentagon, raising his hands to his face as he chanted the call to prayer. While politicians and others across the country in an election year debate the propriety of building a Muslim center, including a mosque, two blocks from the former World Trade Center site in New York, there’s no sign of such debate at the Pentagon.

Instead, about 400 worshipers, including Muslims, attend prayer services every week in the chapel, a non-denominational facility built over the rubble left behind when American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the Pentagon.

Opponents of the New York mosque say it would be disrespectful of those killed on Sept. 11, 2001, to allow Muslims to pray near the World Trade Center site.

That’s never been an issue at the Pentagon, where 125 people who worked there died that day. Muslims have been praying at the Pentagon’s chapel since 2002, gathering every day at 2 p.m. around the time of the second of five prayers Muslims are supposed to offer daily. Read the rest of this entry »

The American Taliban

This one from Maddow on how one company is printing Bible verses on scopes utilized by the US Military and given to our Muslim allies to combat Islamic extremists…

This one reminds me of a lesson the British learned in India, near 150 years ago in 1857 during the first Indian Liberation War. The Pattern 1853 Rifle issued Indian Troops fighting for the British was a muzzle loading gun typical of the time. Because the modern brass cartridge had not been invented yet – the powder and bullet were packed in a paper tube together as a expedient to loading the rifle quickly. The paper was coated with a fat to prevent the paper cartridge from getting wet, rendering it useless. To load the gun, the soldier bit off the end of the cartridge, and poured it’s contents down the barrel. This same rifle, as well as this type of paper cartridge was used extensively during the American Civil War until it was displaced by cartridge based designs.

Hindus are vegetarian, and Muslims do not eat pork. Almost immediately upon the issue of the rifles rumors swirled as to the origin of the fat. British officers were largely unsympathetic to the religious sensitivities of their Indian troops…

The result was The Indian “rebellion” of 1857.

The Obama Administration needs to cancel the contract with Trijicon, and ban them from further Federal business.

They are killing our people, for their own religious vanity.
