Personal Quotes (3)

[on making Man in the Saddle (1951)] Randolph Scott was a joy to work with, elegant, such a gentleman, and so devastatingly good looking. A charmer with beautiful eyes. I compare him to Gary Cooper, but Cooper had more versatility. Randy was so at ease on the set.
[on working with James Craig in Northwest Stampede (1948)] He was a pill . . . not easy to work with. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder and it showed in everything he did.

Gary Cooper gave me a doll on the set [of Sergeant York (1941)]. That's how he saw me.

WVOM Radio Interview with Gov. Paul LePage on Voice Mail "Show Down"

AUGUSTA, Maine (IFS) -- The story about this conversation is very old.  It is amazing that it is now getting aired because of a tirade by Governor LePage left in a voicemail.  It was reported by IFS back in 2012 about the "claimant"  of black drug dealers coming to the State of Maine and leaving babies and drugs in the wake.  The story was not directly tied to the City of Philadelphia and/or New York.  

Should the Governor resigned about this?  We  writers here at IFS don't believe he should.  

Everyone of us have an "off" day where no one dies, but a lot of rhetoric is left on the table. The voicemail was just one step short of a duel in the streets at high noon.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage said Tuesday that he plans to meet with a Democratic lawmaker to try to make amends for leaving an obscene voicemail message and that he isn't ruling out resigning.

When Governor LePage did speak about it  on WVOM-FM radio, LePage apologized for the tirade directed at Rep. Drew Gattine and said it was "unacceptable and totally my fault." LePage was going to meet with family and close advisers to decide what to do next. He said he hopes Maine residents will forgive him and say, "You clean up your act and let's move forward.'"

LePage also declined to say whether he will serve out the remainder of his term. "Some things I've been asked to do are beyond my ability," LePage said without elaborating. "I'm not going to say I'm not going to finish it. I'm not going to say I am going to finish it."

Nancy Wake - Most Decorated Woman in Military History



Nancy Grace Augusta Wake AC GM (30 August 1912 – 7 August 2011) served as a British agent during the later part of World War II. She became a leading figure in the maquis groups of the French Resistance and was one of the Allies' most decorated servicewomen of the war.

After the fall of France in 1940, she became a courier for the French Resistance and later joined the escape network of Captain Ian Garrow. By 1943, Wake was the Gestapo's most wanted person, with a 5 million-franc price on her head.

After reaching Britain, Wake joined the Special Operations Executive. On the night of 29–30 April 1944, Wake was parachuted into the Auvergne, becoming a liaison between London and the local maquis group headed by Captain Henri Tardivat in the Forest of Tronçais. From April 1944 until the liberation of France, her 7,000+ maquisards fought 22,000 SS soldiers, causing 1,400 casualties, while taking only 100 themselves.

Early life

Born in Roseneath, Wellington, New Zealand in 1912, Wake was the youngest of six children. In 1914, her family moved to Sydney, Australia and settled at North Sydney.[1] Shortly thereafter, her father, Charles Augustus Wake, returned to New Zealand, leaving her mother Ella Wake (née Rosieur; 1874–1968) to raise the children.

In Sydney, she attended the North Sydney Household Arts (Home Science) School (see North Sydney Technical High School).[2] At the age of 16, she ran away from home and worked as a nurse. With £200 that she had inherited from an aunt,

she journeyed to New York, then London where she trained herself as a journalist. In the 1930s, she worked in Paris and later for Hearst newspapers as a European correspondent. She witnessed the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement and "saw roving Nazi gangs randomly beating Jewish men and women in the streets" of Vienna.

Wartime service and Special Operations Executive

In 1937, Wake met wealthy French industrialist Henri Edmond Fiocca (1898–1943), whom she married on 30 November 1939. She was living in Marseille, France when Germany invaded. After the fall of France in 1940, she became a courier for

the French Resistance and later joined the escape network of Captain Ian Garrow. In reference to Wake's ability to elude capture, the Gestapo called her the White Mouse. The Resistance had to be very careful with her missions; her life was in constant danger, with the Gestapo tapping her phone and intercepting her mail.

In November 1942, Wehrmacht troops occupied the southern part of France after the Allies' Operation Torch had started. This gave the Gestapo unrestricted access to all papers of the Vichy régime and made life more dangerous for Wake.

[citation needed] The Germans had an English spy, Sergeant Harold Cole, working for them. By 1943, Wake was the Gestapo's most wanted person, with a 5 million-franc price on her head. When the network was betrayed that same year, she decided to flee Marseille. Her husband, Henri Fiocca, stayed behind; he was later captured, tortured and executed by the Gestapo.

Wake described her tactics: "A little powder and a little drink on the way, and I'd pass their (German) posts and wink and say, 'Do you want to search me?' God, what a flirtatious little bastard I was."
Wake had been arrested in Toulouse, but was released four days later. An acquaintance managed to have her let out by making up stories about her supposed infidelity to her husband. She succeeded, on her sixth attempt, in crossing the Pyrenees to Spain. Until the war ended, she was unaware of her husband's death and subsequently blamed herself for it.

After reaching Britain, Wake joined the Special Operations Executive. Vera Atkins, who also worked in the SOE, recalls her as "a real Australian bombshell. Tremendous vitality, flashing eyes. Everything she did, she did well." Training reports record that she was "a very good and fast shot" and possessed excellent fieldcraft. She was noted to "put the men to shame by her cheerful spirit and strength of character."

On the night of 29–30 April 1944, Wake was parachuted into the Auvergne, becoming a liaison between London and the local maquis group headed by Captain Henri Tardivat in the Forest of Tronçais. Upon discovering her tangled in a tree,

Captain Tardivat greeted her remarking, "I hope that all the trees in France bear such beautiful fruit this year," to which she replied, "Don't give me that French shit."  Her duties included allocating arms and equipment that were parachuted in and minding the group's finances. Wake became instrumental in recruiting more members and making the maquis groups into a formidable force, roughly 7,500 strong. She also led attacks on German installations and the local Gestapo HQ in Montluçon.

At one point Wake discovered that her men were protecting a girl who was a German spy. They did not have the heart to kill her in cold blood, but Wake did. She said after that it was war, and she had no regrets about the incident.

From April 1944 until the liberation of France, her 7,000+ maquisards fought 22,000 SS soldiers, causing 1,400 casualties, while taking only 100 themselves. Her French companions, especially Henri Tardivat, praised her fighting spirit, amply demonstrated when she killed an SS sentry with her bare hands to prevent him from raising the alarm during a raid.

During a 1990s television interview, when asked what had happened to the sentry who spotted her, Wake simply drew her finger across her throat. "They'd taught this judo-chop stuff with the flat of the hand at SOE, and I practised away at it. But this was the only time I used it -- whack -- and it killed him all right. I was really surprised.

On another occasion, to replace codes her wireless operator had been forced to destroy in a German raid, Wake rode a bicycle for more than 500 miles (800 km) through several German checkpoints.[4] During a German attack on another maquis group, Wake, along with two American officers, took command of a section whose leader had been killed. She directed the use of suppressive fire, which facilitated the group's withdrawal without further losses.

Post-war

Immediately after the war, Wake was awarded the George Medal, the United States Medal of Freedom, the Médaille de la Résistance, and thrice the Croix de Guerre. She learned that the Gestapo had tortured her husband to death in 1943 for refusing to disclose her whereabouts. After the war, she worked for the Intelligence Department at the British Air Ministry attached to embassies of Paris and Prague.

Wake stood as a Liberal candidate in the 1949 Australian federal election for the Sydney seat of Barton, running against Dr. Herbert Evatt, then Deputy Prime Minister, Attorney-General and Minister for External Affairs in the Ben Chifley Labor government. While Chifley lost government to Robert Menzies, Wake recorded a 13 percent swing against Evatt,[13] with Evatt retaining the seat with 53.2 per cent of the vote on a two-party preferred basis. Wake ran against Evatt again at the 1951 federal election.

By this time, Evatt was Deputy Leader of the Opposition. The result was extremely close. However, Evatt retained the seat with a margin of fewer than 250 votes. Evatt slightly increased his margin at subsequent elections before relocating to the safer seat of Hunter by 1958.

Wake left Australia just after the 1951 election and moved back to England. She worked as an intelligence officer in the department of the Assistant Chief of Air Staff at the Air Ministry in Whitehall. She resigned in 1957 after marrying an RAF officer, John Forward, in December of that year. They returned to Australia in the early 1960s. Maintaining her interest in politics, Wake was endorsed as a Liberal candidate at the 1966 federal election for the Sydney

seat of Kingsford Smith. Despite recording a swing of 6.9 per cent against the sitting Labor member Daniel Curtin, Wake was again unsuccessful. Around 1985, Wake and John Forward left Sydney to retire to Port Macquarie.

In 1985, Wake published her autobiography, The White Mouse. The book became a bestseller and has been reprinted many times.

After 40 years of marriage, her husband John Forward died at Port Macquarie on 19 August 1997; the couple had no children.

In 2001, Wake left Australia for the last time and emigrated to London. She became a resident at the Stafford Hotel in St James' Place, near Piccadilly, formerly a British and American forces club during the war. She had been introduced to her first "bloody good drink" there by the general manager at the time, Louis Burdet. He had also worked for the Resistance in Marseilles. In the mornings she would usually be found in the hotel bar, sipping her first gin and tonic

of the day. She was welcomed at the hotel, celebrating her 90th birthday there, where the hotel owners absorbed most of the costs of her stay. In 2003, Wake chose to move to the Royal Star and Garter Home for Disabled Ex-Service Men and Women in Richmond, London, where she remained until her death.

Wake died on Sunday evening 7 August 2011, aged 98, at Kingston Hospital after being admitted with a chest infection.[18] She had requested that her ashes be scattered at Montluçon in central France.[19] Her ashes were scattered near the village of Verneix, which is near Montlucon, on 11 March 2013.

Honours

Wake was appointed a Chevalier (knight) of the Legion of Honour in 1970 and was promoted to Officer of the Legion of Honour in 1988.  Initially, she refused offers of decorations from Australia, saying: "The last time there was a suggestion of that I told the government they could stick their medals where the monkey stuck his nuts. The thing is if they gave me a medal now, it wouldn't be love so I don't want anything from them. It was not until February 2004, that Wake received the Companion of the Order of Australia.

In April 2006, she was awarded the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association's highest honour, the RSA Badge in Gold. Wake's medals are on display in the Second World War gallery at the Australian War Memorial Museum in Canberra.

On 3 June 2010, a "heritage pylon" paying tribute to Wake was unveiled on Oriental Parade in Wellington, New Zealand, near the place of her birth.

Joseph Dissmore


I was born in Cumberland Maryland in 1986, the son of a pastor who lead the church in Hyndman PA. When I was 2 years old, my father took the pastorate at the Assemblies of God church in Great Cacapon West Virginia where he still pastoring today. 

I was homeschooled and forced to take piano lessons from Mrs. Howard in Winchester virginia for around 8 years, which am very thankful to my parents for now.

 When I was 18 years old, I left home to go to school at free gospel bible institute in Export Pennsylvania, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh. I spent 3 years there traveling and singing and playing with the choir and doing various ministries with churches around the country. 

I graduated there in 2007 and went to work in a church in McKees Rocks Pennsylvania, right on the outskirts of Pittsburgh.

I spent a little over two years there, and left to move back to Virginia around some friends to work and to join the Marine Corps from there. I finally got in the Marine Corps on Dec 13 2010 and boot camp was absolutely miserable, but I pushed through and graduated in March of 2011.

     I joined the infantry, and became a machine gunner in 2nd battalion 9th Marines (hell in a helmet) and left for Afghanistan in November of 2011. I ended up doing 2 more deployments with 2/9 (1 more to Afghanistan and 1 to Okinawa Japan). In May of 2015 I left 2/9 to change units and go to 1/3 in Hawaii where I still am today. 

   Before and since I've been in, I'm always playing music and writing new songs. I met a friend here who also plays and writes and we have been working on a lot of music and songwriting together.

White Police Declare Genocide Against Black American Citizens

West Sacramento (IFS) -- If you are a person of color riding in a car or walking on the public sidewalks, your chance of surviving a white police officer's stop and you walking or driving away is 0 percent. White police officers have declared open hunting season on all people of color. They hide behind these fake one sided laws.  And they want us to trust them?  Not as far as I could toss a dead baby elephant.

It's just a matter of time that these white police officers will be placing people of color in prision camps like the Germans did to the Jews and the United States  Government did to our Japanese citizens. We are under fire and we are in a war. Black lifes matter -- only too you. Every white cop with a badge is out to kill all blacks. There is no middle ground on this statement. It's genocide against us.

The president and DOJ are doing nothing about these tragedies.  They all talk a good game of nothing and lip service.

You stupid Black People you better get your head out of the sand. You are a target with your hands on the wheel or not. They don't care.  And you better care and you best be armed because you are going to die when you do the right thing or not.  They don't give a rats ass about us.

Sandra Dee - The Queen of the Teens

Height5' 4" (1.63 m)

Mini Bio (1)

Sandra Dee was born Alexandria Zuck on April 23, 1942 in Bayonne, New Jersey, to Mary (Cymboliak) and John Zuck. She was of Carpatho-Rusyn descent. Her mother envisioned a show business career for her daughter and would often lie about her age in order to get Sandy where she wanted to go. For example, her mother enrolled her in school early so she could have a head start. Sandy was only four years old when she entered the second grade. Sandra was an extremely pretty young lady, which enabled her to get into modeling. In fact, she was already very successful at her craft by the time she was 12 years old. This in turn led to television commercials for local companies, an added benefit for the young model.

Through her mother's prodding and the talent scouts, Sandra was signed to do a movie when she was 14 called Until They Sail (1957), released in 1957. While the film didn't exactly top the charts, it would lay the foundation for Sandra's career. The new young actress was then signed to two more films for 1958, The Reluctant Debutante (1958) and The Restless Years (1958), the latter with a young actor, John Saxon. In 1959, Sandra appeared in five productions with Gidget (1959) and A Summer Place (1959) being the two most popular. Sandra was 17 years old and becoming the heartthrob of teenage boys all across America. In 1960, Sandra appeared in only one film, Portrait in Black (1960), but is remembered by her for something else. She married teen idolBobby Darin in December of that year. It may have sunk a few teen boys' hearts, but most still were enamored of her. Her work, once again, took off. The 1961 releases were Come September (1961), Romanoff and Juliet (1961), and as Tammy Tyree inTammy Tell Me True (1961).

Sandra had replaced the ever-popular Debbie Reynolds in the "Tammy" series, but the film and its 1963 sequel, Tammy and the Doctor (1963), didn't do all that well at the box-office. The films were now slowing for Sandra. The last few that she made were I'd Rather Be Rich (1964), That Funny Feeling (1965), A Man Could Get Killed (1966),Doctor, You've Got to Be Kidding! (1967), and Rosie! (1967). By 1967, her marriage to Darin ended and so did her film career. There was little call for a teenage movie star to play daughters and such, when everyone knew that she was a divorcée. Plus, the face of movies had changed and sugary stories were not the ones that people wanted to see. Sandra did nail down the part of "Nancy Wagner" in 1970's The Dunwich Horror (1970).

In the 1970s, Dee made a few appearances in made-for-television movies, but it was the film Grease (1978) that made her famous to a new generation. While she was not in the film, one of the popular songs was "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee".

Sandra's last silver screen role was in Lost (1983). She died of kidney complications on February 20, 2005.

Is immortalized in the popular song "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee" from the movieGrease (1978). The song mocked her squeaky-clean image but Dee reportedly said in a statement that she did not mind, and always had a big laugh about it.
She received renewed attention after the release of the movie Beyond the Sea (2004), the biopic about her late husband Bobby Darin that recalled and detailed their stormy, headline marriage. Despite its painful aspects, she reportedly approved of the project and gave it her blessing.

Personal Quotes (6)

I think male nudity is wonderful.
I began telling stories as a volunteer in my daughters' school. But I grew up hearing stories from Cuban and Southern storytellers, and I learned a great deal by just being quiet and listening.
Me, I'm good at nothing but walking on the set with a pretty dress.
I don't know anything about making a passionate love story, even if it's appealing for an audience to see a husband and wife make love on the screen.
Listen to great storytellers; slowly, you will learn about voice, timing, tension, structure, climax - all the things you need to tell stories that will capture the imagination of your audience.

There are constant cycles in history. There is loss, but it is always followed by regeneration. The tales of our elders who remember such cycles are very important to us now.

The Wild and the Innocent Western (1959) Audie Murphy, Joanne Dru & Gilbert Roland

Charming tale of mountaineer-trapper Murphy's first taste "big city" life with young, sweet Sandra Dee in tow. She flees her family, which tried to trade her for some of Murphy's beaver pelts, and tags along with the reluctant Murphy. They get into all manner of trouble in town, and Murphy has to shoot the sheriff to rescue Dee from her job as a dancehall girl.

Robert "Butch Mello" Mathias - It was great growing up with you. . .


MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -  How would one describe Butch Mello - fearless. . .   A true warrior on the field and on the court.  Yet small in statue, but a heart of a giant and no better of a friend when you needed some help.  One could go on saying little quits and passages from many books, pamphlets and other such pieces of paper that would describe Butch.  We know who he was and truly one that will be missed.  Rest in peace Robert. . . you were one of the greats in our town and school.-KHS

John Wayne's Ultra-Racist Views of African Americans Ran Deep

Apr 30, 16 by EurPublisher


As we reported earlier, the California State Assembly rejected a John Wayne Day resolution authored by Orange County Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper because Wayne said in a Playboy interview in May, 1971 he believed in “white supremacy.”

 As bad as that was it was just the tip of the iceberg of Wayne’s hard core mean spirited, ultra-racist views about African-Americans. Despite the California Assembly’s rejection of the Wayne Day, Wayne is still America’s much revered super-hero, icon and symbol of American values. Here’s America’s icon’s views about African-Americans that his “white supremacy” quip only barely scratched the surface with.

Read and judge for yourself:


PLAYBOY:  Angela Davis claims that those who would revoke her teaching credentials on ideological grounds are actually discriminating against her because she’s black. Do you think there’s any truth in that?

WAYNE: With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. 

* * * EDITORS NOTE, West Sacramento CA (IFS) -- We interrupt this reading to interject some objective point of views to this article.  As One notes above from the PlayBoy Magazine inteview from 1971, Mr Wayne opened the interview above in the red italic bold print.  

Mr Wayne made some of his millions of dollars and on screen success to moviegoers of color forever.  The rest of this is just "Hollywood" like in Governor George Wallace's heyday of race and denying people of color the right to go to school.  It was that view of the time in America that hate was on everyone's minds. . . 

Mr. Wayne did not fight on any frontlines other then those in front of a camera.  First, he was just old enough not to be eligible for military duty -- so he made films  

The mental war on war is war for the whole family and friends bit.  And possibly, one can count the number of actors with color on his films -- all on one hand.  

Wayne never had a black female in the same picture frame with him...on any film.   http://xmovies8.tv/movie/watch-trumbo-2015-free/-- KHS * * *





WAYNE: But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.

READ RELATED STORY:

John Wayne’s Racist Comments Kill Official Recognition in California Assembly PLAYBOY: Are you equipped to judge which blacks are irresponsible and which of their leaders inexperienced?

WAYNE: It’s not my judgment. The academic community has developed certain tests that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven’t passed the tests and don’t have the requisite background.

PLAYBOY: How do they get that background?

WAYNE: By going to school. I don’t know why people insist that blacks have been forbidden their right to go to school. They were allowed in public schools wherever I’ve been. Even if they don’t have the proper credentials for college, there are courses

PLAYBOY: But isn’t it true that we’re never likely to rectify the inequities in our educational system until some sort of remedial education is given to disadvantaged minority groups?

WAYNE: What good would it do to register anybody in a class of higher algebra or calculus if they haven’t learned to count? ………….
