National Museum of the Marine Corps




I was given the privilege of teaching classes in Behavioral Science for the FBI’s National Academy this week, and arrived a day early where my family and I visited the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia.

It had a powerful affect upon us.

The museum is a testament to the American spirit of self sacrifice and a reminder that freedom must be fought for.  I spoke with people from around the country as well as from China, the Philippines, Central America, and Europe, as we moved through the chronology of Marine bravery, skillfully told in imagery, film, and music. 

As we went from war to war, my wife, Heather was unable to hold back the tears.  I noticed that others, particularly those of middle age or order, struggled with the same; either tearing up, or choking back the tears.

The staff is used to this and one question is the single most commonly asked of them.  It is not about a location of a specific exhibit, nor where the restroom or cafeteria is located.  The most common question they hear is: “What happened to our country?”

At the museum, for the first time in years, I felt proud of my country.  For the past 8 years, I have been told by the political elite, the media, and the nonsense that children are taught in school, that I should feel ashamed of being American, and I should be apologetic for being male. I have been told that law enforcement is the enemy, and success only comes from the benevolence of government. 

The museum is a testament to the American dream of freedom being worth defending, even dying for.   

After 8 years of lies, propaganda, and the self-loathing of Marxist ideology, I felt restored, rejuvenated and inspired, and did not want to surrender this recovered sense of nationalism. 

The next day I taught at the FBI’s Academy where the proverbial “hallowed halls of learning” did not disappoint.  Dedicated men and women from around the nation as well as Europe and Australia came to our FBI because they wish to learn from America’s wealth of knowledge in protecting and maintaining the distinctly American way of life.   


These eager law enforcement professionals walk with dignity, served by dedicated instructors and support who work long hours, well beyond the workday, because they believe in, and love what they do.  

These are men and women who are proud to be Americans and proud to serve.  They are not divided black from white, male from female, as our propagandists have done with so many.  

They are Americans who serve.  

They love their country, still.

These professionals have been vilified and held responsible for the failures of the policies of the political elite for the past 8 years.  By observing their attitude towards work, you’d never know it.  Their morale has been hit hard, but not their gratitude nor even their marvel, as they feel as I do, privileged to be in a place of such great learning.

 The National Museum of the Marine Corps is free of charge and something every lover of America should visit.

The FBI Academy is where the best and brightest of law enforcement receive the training and knowledge on keeping America safe; a place of the rule of law with equal justice.  The best and brightest are served by the proud and dignified, and these cadets, officers, and others, are in capable, professional hands.  


A visit to the museum or a tour of the FBI Academy, may have the medicinal effect upon you that it did upon us.

In the spirit of "what happened to our country", what is your opinion about the homosexual agenda? Specifically, I was thinking about how a gay couple will sue a baker for not making a cake for a gay wedding. They claim discrimination akin to racial discrimination. Is sexual orientation similar to race, creed, ethnicity, etc.?

To be sure, there is a movement underfoot in the US.

I thought we here in Canada were getting a grip, but MSM managed to beat everyone back down in one term. Maybe your swinging pendulum will have a far reaching effect. :0)

Thank you for posting this article. I am moved by your experience there. As Nic alluded, in Canada we need the same kind of revelation and renewed sense of nationalism, which is a good thing. Our government also has tried to make us think otherwise. Freedom is under attack, from within not from without.

Your post is encouraging. And you have a lovely family.
Sincerely,
SLH

As a matter of interest, plus the fact i like to poke people with a large pointy stick to see what happens, i got to thinking.

What would happen if a gay couple asked a muslim baker to bake them a wedding cake?

Who would win and why?

how much would their lawyers make from the case? :)

Peter, That is wonderful you are teaching the FBI. They couldn't ask for a better teacher!

off topic and funny as heck.

Rachel Dolezal's memoir won't be released for another five months, but already the critiques are starting to pile up.

The former NAACP leader, who became a national sensation after it was revealed she was a race faker, announced her book was available for pre-order on Amazon.

Dolezal's Instagram announcement about her memoir, titled In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World, was immediately met with backlash.

'Please tell me what she knows about being a REAL TRUE black woman?' one user commented on Dolezal's post.

'You'll NEVER know our struggles and I don't care how much dark spray tan you put on.'

Another commenter tried to plead directly with Dolezal, telling her she should be a 'white ally' instead of a 'civil rights leader underneath a lie'.

'You really don't understand the Black Experience because you still hold your white privilege,' they added.

'To get a book published because of your lie is a slap in the face to all of the struggling Black Women authors that cannot land a book deal due to prejudices.'

The book is described as the story of Dolezal's path from being a child of white Evangelical parents to 'an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identified as black'.

Dolezal will explore the 'deep emotional bond' she developed with her four adopted black siblings and the 'sense of belonging she felt while living in black communities', according to the synopsis.

The $15 hardcover book, which is 256 pages, will also discuss 'the discrimination' Dolezal claims to have suffered 'while living as a black woman'.

'Her story is nuanced and complex, and in the process of telling it, she forces us to consider race in an entirely new light,' the synopsis concludes.

'Not as a biological imperative, but as a function of the experience we have, the culture we embrace, and, ultimately, the identity we choose.'

A number of writers on Twitter have since hit back at Dolezal's book, voicing their concerns that she was writing about discrimination when black women are underrepresented in the publishing world.

cont.

'Rachel Dolezal wrote a memoir about being "discriminated against" but real Black women have trouble finding literary agents', wrote Evette Dionne.

'Rachel Dolezal got a a book deal, meanwhile, black writers sometimes can't even get articles published. How annoying,' added Ivie Okechukwu-Ani.

'If the first line of Rachel Dolezal's book isn't "I'm White" I'm not interested,' added another.

Hanif Abdurraqib and Gabino Iglesias both encouraged their followers to buy or share news about books written by black women or people of color rather than publicizing Dolezal's memoir.

And other users were just angry to see Dolezal's name back in headlines.

'Why are people still paying attention to Rachel Dolezal,' one user wrote. 'The first week it was funny but now its played out.'

'Which white actress in blackface will play Rachel Dolezal in the Lifetime movie based on her hack book about her life of a lie?' asked Janée Woods.

Dolezal made international headlines after her parents revealed she was a white woman pretending to be black.

The educator resigned from her post as the Spokane, Washington NAACP leader and also lost her job as an adjunct instructor at Eastern Washington University.

Dolezal later conceded that she 'was biologically born white to white parents', and compared herself to Caitlyn Jenner, claiming race is 'not coded in your DNA' and should be viewed like gender or religion.

Since the scandal, Dolezal has given birth to her third child, a boy named Langston Attickus Dolezal.

She now makes a living by braiding hair, specializing in styles popular among African-American women, according to The Daily Beast.

In September Dolezal spoke at BraidOn Economic Liberty Parade and Festival, an event focused on African-American hair.

Dolezal's book proposal was shopped to more than 30 publishers before she landed a deal with independent publisher BenBella.
