March 5, 2018: America Won the Cold War, How Did We Lose the Aftermath?

The CWVA has identified some interesting excerpts from The Fatal Delusions of Western Man, a thought-provoking essay by Patrick J. Buchanan that merits reading as well as frank and open discussion (regardless of ideological persuasion).  Much of the quoted material deals with Western miscues before and during the Cold War that are being amplified by even-more-foolhardy relations with modern-day Russia and China.  CLICK HERE to read.

 

March 3, 2018: A Cold War Nation Under God...

Discover the role the Cold War played in making "One Nation, Under God" and "In God We Trust" part of the "Civil Religion" of the United States of America by reading the NEW essay by CWVA Chairman Vince Milum, "The Truth About the Separation of Church and State So Help Me God!"

 

February 23, 2018: Neocons Seek to Undo America's Victory in the Cold War
 
CWVA Chairman Vince Milum has launched a new web section dedicated to explaining how (Anti-Christian) Neoconservatives (many of whom are former communists) are attempting to undo America's victory in the Cold War.  To learn more, CLICK HERE (and note especially the postings entitled, "What's the Motive Behind the (Dedicated) Russia Coverage?" and "How The Manchurian Candidate foresaw the rise of American Neocons")

   

January 7, 2018: CWVA Announcements:

(1) After an extended hiatus to work "behind the scenes," the CWVA is proud to announce the relaunch of our web site.  Stay tuned for updates including one we are announcing today about one of the missions accomplished during our "hiatus."

(2) The CWVA sponsored a town hall in the summer of 2017 (with CWVA Chairman Vince Milum serving as co-executive producer) at a Kansas City area VFW, wherein (Retired Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant and) USS Liberty Survivor Bryce Lockwood recounted the June 8, 1967 attack on his vessel, the USS Liberty.  The attack occurred in international waters and resulted in the deaths of 34 crew members and the severe wounding of over 170 others.

The culprits of this attack have escaped justice because of a cover-up perpetrated both by the Johnson Administration and by two Navy men (both of whom are named John McCain).

To their credit, this summer, the American Legion passed a resolution demanding that Congress right this wrong and conduct a thorough investigation and to hold the guilty parties accountable.  That resolution can be read here.  A discussion of the role the McCain family has played in this ongoing atrocity can be found here.

Membership News from the Past...

  

March 13, 2014: Re-ignition of the Cold War. 

Since last we updated our News section, the Cold War appears to have been reignited -- only this time the United States cannot claim the moral high ground it once commanded. 

While the government that led Ukraine (until its overthrow) did not meet "Jeffersonian" ideals, it was democratically elected and (in the not-too-distant future) was due to stand for re-election.  Rather than wait out this process, the U.S. government (through the auspices of U.S. Ambassador Victoria Nuland and with billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars) coordinated a violent coup.  Spearheading this U.S. sponsored violence were groups considered (by many) to be "neo-Nazi" -- both in terms of their history and their stated policies.  The umbrella name for many of the violent (U.S. supported) "neo-fascists" is Right Sector.  Another violent (U.S. supported) group (historically aligned with Nazism) is Svoboda.  (Five members of the Svoboda Party hold positions in the coup government now ruling Ukraine.) 

It should also be noted that the non-elected Ukrainian government has replaced the governors in the east of the country (the part of the country which remains loyal to the democratically-elected government) with "Oligarchs" -- billionaires whose wealth was obtained through very questionable means and methods.  U.S. taxpayers are now being asked to further enrich these billionaires at a time when the United States is cutting military benefits, veterans' benefits, food stamps and other programs that non-billionaire Americans depend upon.

Further damaging the reputation of the United States is our refusal to recognize democratic elections by sovereign regions within Ukraine (such as in Crimea) that do not wish to be ruled by neo-Nazis.

Perhaps the greatest mischaracterization of the events in Ukraine is the portrayal of modern-day Russia as a Soviet reincarnation when, in fact, the present leaders of Russia are (nearly) universally Christian and the majority of the Russian populace self-identifies as Orthodox Christian.  In other words, Russia is no longer the "godless," "atheist" nation that America fought for so many years.  One can draw his/her own conclusions as to the merits of religious belief.  One cannot, however, be permitted to draw Americans into a "Holy War" with an enemy that does not exist.

  

January 26, 2012: Thanks to George Lucas having (recently) reminded us of the brave service of the Tuskegee Airmen, we thought it appropriate to share with you a photo (below) from last year's banquet of the Tuskegee Airmen's Heart of America Chapter.  The gentleman to the left is an original Tuskegee Airman, Major Harvey Bayless.  Pictured to the right is the Public Affairs Director of the local chapter, George Dunmore.  In the center is CWVA Chairman Vince Milum.
