Dispatch 4: Return to America: Ammo at Cabela’s, and more observations

Write a comment

IMG 2517

A friend and I spent the afternoon of my third day back in America tooling around Vancouver, and into northern Oregon.

In the outlying areas, if I did not already know there is a ‘hurricane,’ I would not have sensed anything off other than tiny clues.

It’s been years since I was in Portland/Vancouver. I have no baseline. I’ve lived a couple years on the West Coast. School here twice such as in San Francisco, and so I am familiar with the vibe and I always loved West Coast in general — other than some obvious ‘anomalies’. (This also is old stomping ground of Gary the Cannibal whom I tracked down in India.)

Dispatch 2: Homeless in Portland -- terrible

Write a comment

Portland

My second day back in America:

Just spent a long afternoon tooling around Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, Oregon.

No smoke from fires. Rains came just before I landed. Weather in the 60s and wonderful. Could see Mt. Hood just an hour ago.

Vancouver peaceful. People pleasant. Little if any overt signs of unrest. Many American flags on homes and businesses. Little mention of BLM and/or Antifa anywhere. (Not that I saw all of Vancouver but a friend and I spent hours yesterday and today looking around.)

Dispatch 1: Portland and Vancouver

Write a comment

Adjustments

Last evening I landed in Portland, Oregon. Scene of much recent rebellion. There was fighting last night at the ICE building. Police were injured. I was not there and have not personally witnessed fighting yet.

Today, a friend and I drove around Vancouver, Washington. After about two hours, we witnessed no signs of violence, BLM, or ANTIFA signs. Am not saying they are not here, but that we did not see any. We did see many American flags flying outside homes and businesses.

Afghanistan: Tim Lynch weighs in on attack against Green Berets in Nangarhar

2 Comments

Note on Tim Lynch: Tim is a friend and he is the real deal. Former Marine infantry officer -- I spent months with Tim in numerous Afghan provinces including Nangarhar (where this attack occurred), Kabul, Kandahar, Helmand, Nimroz, Urozgan, Mazar-i-Sharif, and I think we went to Paktia and some others. Escapes me now, but we were all over the place and never with military other than when military would sneak out and come to Tim's bar. (Yes, Tim had a bar in Afghanistan, and it was the best intel-hole in the country.)

Grandma Wong Arrested by Communists

1 Comment

Grandma Wong is very popular among Hong Kong Liberators. I saw her at many protests and talked with her through translator now and then. Very courageous lady. She would wave that flag for hours. I sometimes commented on livestreams that I don't know how she keeps going.

Grandma Wong is a political prisoner held hostage.
