Dispatch 26: America is Pretty Cool, and THE TWILIGHT ZONE

Lacey, Washington

After many years overseas, I've now been home to America for a full month. Mostly, so far, in Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, Oregon. Now in Lacey.

Yesterday, I spent 13 hours with a couple of veteran friends. The senior of our group did about 30 years of service and joined in 1960.

Something that strikes me is something that is common among Americans, but not of many other folks I see around the world.

Dispatch 24: Return to America: Drugs, Drugs, Homeless, Drugs

Today, a long day. Out with an Army vet friend who did two EOD tours in Iraq. Name is Al Johnson. Al and I have been fighting China together around Asia since 2014. We've done more than our share to CCP and are plotting more.

Today we were out with Proud Boys. Checking them out in Salem, Oregon. The Proud Boys are not a concern. The ones we met are fine. They like to drink a lot of beer but they were not up to any trouble. One even had moonshine.

Dispatch 23: Thailand Uprising -- Danger on the Streets

Write a comment

I am American living in Thailand. Currently in Portland, Oregon, embarking on a journey around America to check our situation in United States. We got problems. So does Thailand. And Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan. All of which are on my mind seven days per week.

Many folks know that during a break from the Iraq/Afghanistan wars, I covered serious fighting with many casualties in Bangkok. Taking a slight ricochet myself. No damage to me other than a good sting, but many others were killed or wounded. Many people -- even foreigners who were in Thailand at the time -- have no idea how sharp some of the fighting was because it was so localized. (Web search on the casualties.)

Dispatch 22: Telecommunications in United States is Terrible

Just finished interview with my friend Sargis Sangari who is running for US Congress. Very important that Americans like Sargis gain seats and work to turn this berg around.

Note: you may have heard me say for years that telecommunications in the United States is pathetic compared to most countries I travel in over the past twenty years. I constantly have telecommunications problems when communicating with Americans both when I am in America, and when overseas.

Dispatch 20: Return to America -- Portland falling. Continue to prepare for 2021

1 Comment

For the past several weeks, I've been going back and forth between Portland, Oregon, and next door Vancouver, Washington.

Downtown Portland and Vancouver may as well be a thousand miles apart. Downtown Portland is filled with homeless people. Many if not nearly all seem mentally ill or severely addicted.

Dispatch 18: Pressurized HUMINT Network in Portland: firehose with valve stuck open

Folks who have followed my work for years know that first thing I do in new conflicts is to create my intel network. Specifically a HUMINT network. Human intelligence.

What was my secret to getting Iraq, Afghanistan, and other conflicts right so quickly? There are many, but number one indicator on mood is HUMINT sources and flows.

Dispatch 16: Return to America: History is Today

Untitled 1

Busy here in Portland. I've been moving back and forth between Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington. Learning much talking with everyone under the sky.

Interesting aside on guns: Gun and ammunition sales have skyrocketed. You know that, of course. Many first-time gun buyers seem to have gunned-up, and my guess is there are plenty of accidents. Play with chainsaws...better go to chainsaw school.

Dispatch 12: Return to America: Portland -- No Police, No Peace

Doxing sign

My sense after a week back in America: here in Portland, BLM/ANTIFA and other far-left factions are strong for limited action, but their life-force is being sapped. They seem to sense they are losing ground. They say so, even on the microphone on stage. There is no action at all tonight -- not that I saw, anyway.

Dispatch 5: Return to America: Guns & Ammo in Vancouver, Washington

Quick update:

Visited a gun-store yesterday. There were density limits so we waited in a line of three people outside while others shopped. While we waited, this apparent Marine surplus vehicle arrived. I do not know the specific nomenclature. There are endless types and always changing. I did not ride in this type in Iraq or Afghanistan.
