SERENDIPITY IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC Print E-mail

Funafuti, Tuvalu.  I'm not sure if what I've discovered here in one of the world's smallest and unknown independent countries is a case of serendipity: finding something where you least expect it - or barendipity: not finding something where you most expect it.  Whichever, it's fascinating, revelatory, and absolutely hilarious. 
 
I came here to understand why and how this place exists.  You'll be amazed to find out.  Get ready to have a really fun learning experience. And enjoy the photos...

GUADALCANAL IN AMERICA Print E-mail

Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands.  Idyllic, isn't it?  Everybody's dream of a South Seas island paradise.  But it wasn't in 1943.  On a moonless night back then, an American PT boat was tracking a Japanese convoy.  All ships were "running dark" with no lights.  Suddenly, a Japanese destroyer was on top of the PT boat, ramming it before the crew could get their boat out of the way.

Their boat sunk, the crew swam to this island, and were subsequently rescued.  An insignificant tale, save for the fact that the PT boat was numbered 109 and captained by Navy Lieutenant John F. Kennedy, who 17 years later would become President of the United States.  That's why the name of the island is Kennedy Island.  (The original native name is Kisolo.)

One can only imagine the rage, disgust, and contempt he would feel over his successor's treatment of his fellow World War II veterans by physically preventing them from visiting the memorials that honor them in Washington.  You have to think he'd say it's time for a Battle of Guadacanal to liberate America.

A CHRISTIAN ISLAND IN A MOSLEM OCEAN Print E-mail

Dili, Timor-Leste.  East of Bali, west of New Guinea, and north of Australia is an island called Timor.  The western half belongs to Indonesia.  The eastern half did too, but no longer.  There are only two Christian countries in all of Asia.  One is the Philippines.  The other is here, the new nation, independent since 2002 after a horrific struggle, of Timor-Leste or East Timor.

You might wonder how this place became Christian surrounded by the world's largest Moslem country - Indonesia.  There are over 200 million Moslems in Indonesia which is almost three times the size of Texas, and only 1 million East Timorese on half an island the size of Connecticut.  But it turns out that Christianity came to this part of the world before Islam.

The Timorese had to suffer unimaginable horrors to achieve their sovereign Christian freedom.  It's a heroic saga and ought to be inspirational for us.  Here is their story.

CHINA IS A SERIOUS COUNTRY -- AMERICA IS NOT Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

Shanghai. The loudest people on the planet are Chinese.  The most obnoxious sound you've ever heard is that of a Chinese man spitting - which they do often and everywhere.  The most evil mass murderer in human history is worshipped as a demi-god by countless Chinese.  His picture is on every denomination of Chinese currency.

The list of Chinese negatives is very long.  And they are all irrelevant.  They are all overridden by one single fact:  that China is a serious country and the Chinese are a serious people - while America and Americans are not.

There is almost no way to describe the massiveness and ubiquity of the construction going on in hundreds of cities.  Gigantic apartment complexes are springing up everywhere.  Bullet trains going 200mph with amazingly smooth rides over railroads that go everywhere.  Superhighways are the same.  There must be at least two or three dozen airlines that fly to hundreds of cities.  Three of them just placed an order for 68 A320s worth $6.75 billion - European Airbuses instead of Boeings as a slap in Zero's face.

This same massive, purposeful, determined energy is being channeled into China's military.  The Chinese will have a full-on blue water navy within a few years.  They are focused on aircraft carrier-sinking cruise missiles, communication satellite-destroying ballistic missiles, undersea cable-slicing deep water robots, and of course, incapacitating our entire computer-based economy and military via hacking.

The Chinese are different from us in many ways.  They operate under a different set of moral rules and proscriptions.  But one thing the Chinese are not is stupid.    Another thing they are not is apologetic and unconfident.

China today is a competitor of America's unlike any we have ever faced.  It is deadly - literally deadly - serious, and deadly smart.  Really smart.  China is becoming more serious, more confident, and more educated-smart by the day - while we are becoming the opposite of all three, by the day.

FROM 9/11 TO 3.0 Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Wednesday, 11 September 2013

On this 12th anniversary of the Moslem Atrocity of 9/11, our problems seem worse than ever.  The federal government has metastasized into a cancer that many consider terminal for our country's existence.  Tens of millions of us have given up hope of ever finding a job again - while millions more just starting out in their twenties have never had a job at all. 

The problems seem so numerous and insuperable that many of us have given up on America's future.  Most horrifying is that this is what Zero wants, the destruction of America's future is his goal.  The more we suffer, the more he gloats, laughing in our faces as he plays another round of golf and Mrs. Zero is treated as royalty, going off on another multi-million dollar vacation.

And all the while, his corrupt corporatist cronies, like those at Solyandra, make hundreds of millions.

So it is only appropriate that we commemorate this day by committing ourselves to creating a new America that will conquer the Curse of Zero, and reclaim our future of optimism.

The good news is that this creation is already well underway.  There's a blueprint for it and the foundation is being laid.  Here it is.
