Major General: ‘Be Gone, Brian Williams, From Our TV Screens’

“Be gone, Brian Williams, from our TV screens,” Major Gen. Paul E. Vallely, US Army (ret), tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview regarding NBC’s Brian Williams scandal, in which the news anchor admitted to having fabricated his oft-repeated claim of having been in a U.S. military plane that was shot down.

Major Gen. Vallely retired in 1991 from the US Army as Deputy Commanding General, US Army, Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii after serving a distinguishing career of 32 years. He is currently chairman of Stand Up America, an organization dedicated to “recovering and preserving our Constitution and Representative Republic.”

In his interview with MRCTV.org, Major Gen. Vallely says that Williams has lost both credibility and respect – and should leave the nation’s airwaves.

Vallely also says the practice of media and politicians exaggerating their experience in war zones is nothing new. He also explains how he has witnessed the media’s bad behavior ever since his service in Vietnam.

Question: What is your personal reaction to the revelation that Brian Williams’ claims are false?

Gen. Vallely: “We have witnessed this same behavior before, even Hillary Clinton in Bosnia, sensationalizing their experience to look and appear like heroes in a dangerous environment.

“Now, he attempts to justify his lies and is stumbling at best. His credibility and respect is gone.”

Question: What reaction have you seen from the military and veteran communities?

Gen. Vallely: “A very negative reaction from the veterans and soldiers because many of us have witnessed this type behavior in combat zones. I witnessed this behavior during my combat days in Vietnam.”

Question: Can you give an example of the behavior you witnessed in Vietnam?

Gen. Vallely: “In Vietnam, most of the reporters and correspondents hung out in Saigon at the hotels with only handfuls going out into the combat zones with our units. Many stories were exaggerated or manufactured by those that did not go into the field and wrote stories based on innuendos and war time gossip in the bars.

“We had some great correspondents though but they were the ones that actually accompanied the combats troops.”

Question: Is Williams’ apology enough and, if it isn’t, what do you think should be done?

Gen. Vallely: “His apology will be accepted by many and rejected by us that know what his motives were.

“Americans tend to forgive and forget. Williams will have to live with his own decisions.”

Question: How does this revelation reflect on the credibility of NBC, in particular, and the mainstream media and the way they cover military and national defense issues?

Gen. Vallely: “It continues with the consistent deception and cover up of the main stream media that appears to shy away from the truth in events and make excuses (apologists) for bad conduct.. They tend to march on and support the “progressives” no matter what they do and say.”

Question: Is there anything else you’d like to comment on or add?

Gen. Vallely: “Be gone, Brian Williams, from our TV screens.”

Maya @ 19:17…Mercury Retrograde

Aquarius by JohfraLOL, it’s been interesting, all righty…Mercury made a retrograde station on January 21st @ 17* Aquarius 03′ and will make its direct station on February 11th @ 14:52 GMT.  I didn’t mention it because no one seems interested when I post anything astrological…I also didn’t post the February Full Moon essay for the same reason.  I’m used to people making comments when I post my essays so when I post them somewhere and there is total silence…I respond in kind.

Wow! Even Winedoc is ‘snowed in’ and practicing survival cooking! 🙂

It has been an unusually bad week at work, with stuff breaking.  I’m the ‘fixit’ guy… I know.  Too late today I find out Mercury is in retrograde until… what?… Feb. 11?

Moggy, dear, I for one would appreciate it if you could remember to tell us dunces when Mercury retrograde season comes around.  Forewarned… all that jazz..   Thank You.

I think I will retire to the bunker until… Feb 12?

Future divide with Euro North and South

Posted by goldielocks @ 18:48 on February 6, 2015  

I have stated time and time again, whenever a politician speaks, you have to listen to every word and read not just between the lines, you have to read between each letter. Mario Draghi said at the press conference, the majority was so clear that a vote was not necessary. That was an outright lie. Draghi did not take a vote for it would have revealed the divide emerging within the EU of the North v South. The representatives of Germany, Austria, Estonia and the Netherlands were all opposed, so there was no majority. Consequently, there was no legal instrument voted on for the QE flooding of markets with one trillion euros. Therefore, five out of 25 members of the Governing Council would have voted no and this would have publicly exposed the rift between North and South that will only grow wider. Armstrong
