MARINE CORPS ORDERS No. 47 (Series 1921)

MARINE CORPS ORDERS
No. 47 (Series 1921)
HEADQUARTERS U.S. MARINE CORPS
Washington, November 1, 1921

759. The following will be read to the command on the 10th of November, 1921, and hereafter on the
10th of November of every year. Should the order not be received by the 10th of November, 1921, it
will be read upon receipt.

(1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental
Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name “Marine”. In memory of them it is
fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the
glories of its long and illustrious history.

(2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous
military organizations in the world’s history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the
Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation’s foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the
Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home,
generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every
corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

(3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves
with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term “Marine” has come
to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

(4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received
from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit
which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of
the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal
to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will
regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as “Soldiers of
the Sea” since the founding of the Corps.

Happy Birthday U.S.M.C.

Janet Napolitano says: Rednecks/Christians and other Domestic Terrorist Groups, no anti muslim backlash.

Homeland Security Commissar, Janet Napolitano issued a stern warning against possible Anti Muslim backlash after the shooting in Ft. Hood by an obviously mentally unstable and beneficiary of the future Health Care Reform, Nidal Malik Hasan. Ms. Napoliotano gave this warning from Abu Dahbi where she is probably taking classes on how to kowtow and bend over to  Muslim Extremists. The part that really churns me up from her warning is this:

Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday’s rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan

Wait a goddamn minute here! Instead of pouring the resources of Homeland Security into investigating if there are (and there are) more extreme Islamic nutjobs ready to let loose at the local mall or public school, you are threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States and defending Hasan and Company? What kind of twisted, sick perverted politically correct skull full of manure are you carrying on those shoulders? I am the threat? Anybody who rightfully makes his or her displeasure to the complicit Muslim community is a threat? What is next? That the dead soldiers had it coming for going to Iraq?

Saddle up boys, the Idiot Posse is coming and they are ridding a Prius!

The PC withewash at Fort Hood has begun.

From what I have been seen in the news today and the way reporters, Talking Heads and “experts” Nidal Malik Hasan was “mentally unbalanced” and not a home grown jihadist. What is worse, they are painting every returning veteran as a potential nutjob about to blow. This is sickening!

So watch out folks, not only anybody you see in uniform is a potential mass murderer, but it is very likely that  Islamofacism will be officially considered a mental health issue and will covered by the Obama Pelosi Universal Health Care program.

Compliance is futile?

We’ve been told by the experts that the best course of action when robbed at gun point is to be submissive and comply with the criminal’s wishes and that we would be spared from harm. Somehow the Bad Guys seem not have received that memo. Down here in South Florida, we recently had a rash of armed robberies targeting gold-bearing victims and the victims were shot even though they were compliant with the criminal’s threats.

“I mean, if you’ve already got the chain, why do you have to go and shoot somebody, somebody who’s got a baby in their hands?” said Cathy Garcia, the victim’s mother-in-law.

So, even though the victims complied and got bullets holes for their compliance.  The Bad Guy chooses the weakest moment possible both physically and mentally: while the victims are handling their kids. Experts will be quick to point out that we should not do anything harsh because the kids are present and we really don’t want them to get hurt, but the criminal(s) shot anyway! Compliance did only not work, but put the kids at risk!

And as ususal, a picture is worth a thousand words:
