Motorcycles, JFK, Elvis, Steve McQueen and My Father

Growing up around motorcycles can teach you a thing or two about life.

Our father was a motorcycle cop in the San Antonio Police Department when my mother checked me out of my third grade class on November 21, 1963.

The night before, Dad had taken us to see “It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” at the Trail Drive in Theater on S.W. Military Drive. Today, we were going back to Military Drive towards Kelly and Lackland Air Force Bases.

JFK motorcade in San Antonio

“We’re going to see Daddy and the President,” she announced. “He’s escorting him today.”

While we drove to the corner of  Military Drive and Zarzamora, President Kennedy was dedicating the new Aerospace Health Center at Brooks AFB. It would be his final official act.

For three years JFK spoke about a New Frontier. Addressing Governor John Connally, senators, congressional leaders and others, he emphasized “This is not a partisan term, and it is not the exclusive property of Republicans or Democrats. It refers, instead, to this Nation’s place in history, to the fact that we do stand on the edge of a great new era, filled with both crisis and opportunity, an era to be characterized by achievement and by challenge.”

“It is an era which calls for action and for the best efforts of all those who would test the unknown and the uncertain in every phase of human endeavor,” he said. “It is a time for pathfinders and pioneers.”

Although honored to see President Kennedy (his hair was more red than I imagined from photos) and First Lady Jacqueline (white dress, matching hat and red roses), I was more excited about Dad waving to me from his motorcycle next to them in the motorcade.

That afternoon, I reflected on seeing JFK while watching my favorite television show, “Supercar.”

This episode was entitled “Mitch For Space,” appropriately titled to support Kennedy’s space program. The shows protagonist was launched into the stratosphere in a space capsule like the Mercury rockets from NASA.

The next day, Gillette Elementary Principal Willis Raines announced on the public address speakers Kennedy had been shot in Dallas.

My father had a shop during my teenage years at his car lot and later on our property on the Southside of San Antonio is the 1970s. But in the 60s it was common for our family to all ride on Dad’s ’59 Royal Enfield Indian cycle.

Sister Bobbi would set just behind the handlebars in front of him. Mom followed, with me bringing up the rear.

Dad looked forward to trailoring motorcycles to the Daytona 200 in Florida with other policemen, including Leroy Ferry and Doyle Soden. He enjoyed being on the pit crew for Ferry who raced several times in the late 1960s-early 70s. Founded in 1937, the 200 mile race was on the beach until 1961, when it moved to a paved closed circuit.

Being an Indian man, Dad was particularly proud when it was announced in 1967 that 68-year old Burt Munro made motorcycle history by setting a new official land speed record of 184.087 mph (with unofficial top speed of 205.67 mph) when he raced his heavily modified 1920 Indian Scout Streamliner across the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

Burt Munro

He loved motorcycles so much that he and Soden hired a mechanic and opened up for repairs at their used car lot in 1969. Later, Dad built a larger 30′ × 60′ shop at our property on Petaluma.

It was common to see policemen, some stopping by in their patrol cars or motorcycles, alongside bikers sharing technical or philosophical wisdom in the shop. Their shared passion was a uniting force.

“I like my women like my Harleys,” one old timer, Leon, who looked like he should have been a ZZ Top member before the band discovered beards, once grinned “About 20 years old with lots of problems.”

Mechanic extraordinaire and electrician Archie Maybry, was full of one-liners:

“Sometimes it takes a winding, crooked road to get your head straight.”

“I can tell the difference between people who come in here just toying around as a hobby. The hobby cats buy a new motorcycle and pretend. Real passion are those that are dovoted to keeping their old rides running.”

Dad took us to the Trail Drive In Theater almost every Wednesday, because police officers were discounted. We were always there to see every Elvis Presley movie. One of our favorites was Roustabout in 1964. Elvis played a motorcyclist who joined a circus.

In 1972, Dad was part of the protection and motorcycle escort team for Elvis from the San Antonio International Airport to the Hilton Palacio Del Rio for his April concert at the Hemisfair Arena. He also did the same at Presley’s August 1976 concert.

One of the most iconic motorcycles to ever appear on the silver screen, was the 650cc Triump R6R (disguised as a BMW 75) that Steve McQueen road in The Great Escape, one of Dad’s favorites.

By the Spring of 1972, Dad was a Detective-Investigator and had a special assignment he would always cherish: providing security for Steve McQueen during the making of The Getaway. Some of it was filmed at the old Sunset Train Station and the River Walk.

“By the time they finished filming in Huntsville (at the Penitentiary), he had already made his moves on Ali McGraw…and she fell for him big time–hook, line and sinker,” Dad said. “Well, she was married to a movie big shot, Robert Evans and it was important to him that we keep people away because they were at it hot and heavy.”

“Evans hired a private investigator and even flew to Texas himself because he knew something was wrong,” he continued. “But he (McQueen) didn’t give a flip about it.”

In San Antonio, McQueen and McGraw stayed at the Holiday Inn on Durango Street near IH-35.  The actor had one of his many motorcycles brought in so he could “ride it around and around the basement” of the hotel.

“I guess he was trying to work off some steam,” Dad said. It was apparent they both had motorcycles in common. After his shift one night, he had a couple of beers with McQueen.

“There is no doubt he was smitten by Ali McGraw,” Dad revealed. “He told me they were originally going to sign on Cybil Sheppard, and then Stella Stevens. There was a lot of problems between studios, producers, directors until finally everything was in place. He was real happy they hired her (McGraw).”

“There was an actor who played in The Godfather (Al Lettieri), that you could tell he wasn’t getting along with either.”

“One night we took them to a small party nearby downtown,” he said. “He was drinking pretty heavily and I thought they (McQueen and McGraw) were going to get into a fight. Right in front of her he started coming on to these two women–they were good looking women.”

“She didn’t say a thing. I could tell she didn’t like it one bit, but he kept on. It was obvious he was making a play for them. We finally took them back to the hotel. They had rooms upstairs next to each other, and I’ll be damned if I didn’t see those two women come into that hotel and go right on up to his room.”

“I heard later after they were gone the next morning, he had Ali come over and cook him some breakfast.”

“He needed to ride that motorcycle,” Dad noticed. “She had her young son, a toddler with her and I guess this was his escape. He was riding and drinking down there to stay out of trouble and work off tension. Yes, he was in love big time and later they married.”

Director Sam Peckinpah later talked about an incident on the first day of rehearsal in San Marcos: “Steve and I had been discussing some point on which we disagreed, so he picked up this bottle of champagne and threw it at me. I saw it coming and ducked. And Steve just laughed.”

Dad said they also talked about guns and he shared a couple of true police stories with him.

“He asked about robberies, guns, and how we approached and handled robbers and shootouts,” Dad recalled.

Packinpah talked about McQueen’s knack with props, especially the weapons he used in the film.

“You can see Steve’s military training in his films,” the director remembered. “He was so brisk and confident in the way he handled the guns.”

It was McQueen’s idea to have his character, “Doc McCoy” shoot and blow up a squad car in the scene where he holds two police officers at gunpoint.

His love for motorcycles and racing spawned two notable quotes from McQueen:

“Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting.” And the one with McQueen’s picture with his motorcycle in The Great Escape. hanging up next to Dad’s tool room door: “I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.”

Other words of wisdom seen or heard over the years included:

“Got a $5 head? Get a $5 helmet.”

“Life might begin at 30, but it doesn’t get real interesting until you reach over 100 on the highway.”

“I believe in treating others with respect, but first you have to get their attention.”

Dad sat on a motorcycle his last time on a trip my sons Jack, Brady and I took to Dallas-Fort Worth from San Antonio on an Amtrak train the summer of 2012. At a wax museum in Arlington, there was a Harley-Davidson set up in the lobby-retail area. He couldn’t resist! It’s a smile I’ll always remember.

Walter “Corky” Dennis died the following December.

Rest In Peace Daddy.








Were You Socially Engineered to Smoke?

There is no doubt that propaganda has played a pivotal role in cigarette smoking.

My request is that as you read through how the father of modern day propaganda and advertising was able to “social engineer” society. Use this basis so you will understand how the pandemic (masks, censorship, no schooling, stay home, etc.) news media, wokeism, Big Pharma, and illegal immigration is coming into play as the New World Order and World Economic Forum attempt their takeover.

Edward Bernays’ public relations efforts for the tobacco companies in the early 20th century helped popularize smoking in the United States, particularly among women.

Bernays, a nephew of Sigmund Freud, pioneered the PR industry’s use of psychology and other social sciences to design its public persuasion campaigns.

“If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing about it? The recent practice of propaganda has proved that it is possible, at least up to a certain point and within certain limits.” (Propaganda, 2005 ed., p. 71.) 

He called this scientific technique of opinion-molding the “engineering of consent.”

Joe Camel made Me Do It! 

Joe Camel

In the 1920s, working for the American Tobacco Company, he sent a group of young models to march in the New York City parade. He then told the press that a group of women’s rights marchers would light “Torches of Freedom”.

On his signal, the models lit Lucky Strike cigarettes in front of the eager photographers.

On April 1, 1929, it was not an April Fool joke when The New York Times printed: “Group of Girls Puff at Cigarettes as a Gesture of ‘Freedom’“. This helped to break the taboo against women smoking in public. 

Physicans? Just like vaccinations.

🔹Over 90 years later we know that smokers die 11 years earlier than non-smokers.  

🔹Evidence shows that smoking accounts for 32 percent of all cancer deaths and 87 percent of lung cancer deaths.  

🔹The risk of developing lung cancer is about 23 times higher in male smokers compared to non-smokers.

🔹Smoking is associated with increased risk of at least 15 types of cancer.

How much has propaganda played in persuading millions to smoke?

The Use of Symbols

By connecting cigarettes, to feminism and the rebellion against a patriarchal society, Edward Barneys gave cigarettes a completely new meaning. The irony that a nicotine addiction and the consume of tobacco was connected to independence wasn’t realized or criticized by many. Why?

Because humans are emotional, not rational beings. Barneys’ realized that early and used this knowledge throughout his career. Another meaning for the symbol of cigarettes in this context was that cigarettes were associated with slimness, and therefore with attractiveness. They were even associated with health!

“Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet!”

Appealing to unconscious desires

The unconscious desires in this context were to fit into the public image of beauty (being slim) and the desire to be free and independent.

What are the social engineering messages television commericials, movies and news reports telling you today?

.

Bernays included in his era, the desire for women to smokec in the phrase “Torches of freedom”.

Some women might never thought about the feminist movement or about smoking cigarettes but Bernays offered them the opportunity to do both.

Normalizing behavior

By arranging leaders, in this case fashionable, thin women, that promote cigarettes as “torches of freedom”, Bernays activated the herd instinct in his audience. The result was that women started to smoke because certain individuals, unconsciously considered as beautiful and independent leaders did.

Women smoking in public was not a taboo anymore but a normal behavior. A behavior which presented independence and vogue.

Getting into the public’s mental space

When Barneys arranged photographers and reporters he sparked conflict and debate within the American society about the topic of smoking women in public.

By framing the event as a “gesture of freedom”, the New York Times contributed to this debate, supporting the intentions of Barneys. Discussions and further feminist movements developed, that stuck in people’s head.

Just by a simple action, women that walk down fifth avenue while smoking cigarettes, and the following news coverage, as well as discussion of the emancipation of women, turned almost fifty percent of the American population into loyal tobacco consumers.

The Brave Horse Who Became a Sargeant in the U.S. Marines

The recoilless rifle was six feet long and weighed over a hundred pounds. It often required three or four Marines to carry it across the battlefields during the Korean War.

Lugging it was dangerous, but it was necessary, because that rifle, which the soldiers nicknamed “reckless,” could fire a 75mm shell thousands of yards with surgical-like precision.

It was one of the U.S. Marine Corps’ finest munitions. But the commander of the Recoilless Rifle Platoon, Eric Pedersen, knew there had to be a better way to use it on the battlefield in Korea.

That better way came to Lieutenant Pedersen in the form of an offer from a stable boy from the racetrack in Seoul. The boy’s sister had stepped on a land mine and lost her leg, but the family couldn’t afford a prostethic. The boy offered Pedersen a horse he owned and was training to race. He had named it “Ah Chim Hai,” or “Morning Flame.”

Pedersen paid $250 of his own money for the small chestnut mare. He wouldn’t be racing her. He was going to train her to carry that giant gun.

Last Man Standing, Jerry Lee Lewis, RIP

Jerry Lee Lewis, the last pioneer of the SUN Records Rock n’ Roll era still standing, died this morning at age 87.

His representative Zach Farnum, released this message: “Judith, his seventh wife, was by his side when he passed away at his home in Desoto County, Mississippi, south of Memphis. He told her, in his final days, that he welcomed the hereafter, and that he was not afraid.”

Lewis taught himself to play piano when he was 9 and sang in church, drawing inspiration from preachers and musicians that traveled through his hometown of Ferriday, Louisiana.

Lewis married his 13 year old cousin, Myra in 1958.

At 10, Lewis’ father mortgaged their family farm to buy him his first piano. He performed for the public for the first time at a local car dealership when he was 14.

See Great Balls of Fire Cornbread recipe here

Lewis crashed into the gates of Graceland, the famed home of Elvis Presley

Through Sam Phillips’ SUN Records in Memphis, Tennessee, Lewis began with the likes of Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Charlie Rich as one of the original rock and rollers.

Lewis with Sam Phillips

Considered a music pioneer, Lewis released a number of timeless hits including “Great Balls Of Fire”, “Whole Lot of Shaking Going On” and “Breathless” before pivoting to country music and topping the charts with tunes like “What Made Milwaukee Famous,”“There Must Be More To Love Than This” and “Would You Take Another Chance On Me.”

Revisiting SUN studio site of the MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET

Over the course of his career, he won several Grammys and was an inaugural inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

When Lewis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, country star Hank Williams Jr. said Lewis “doesn’t ask for your attention, he demands it.”

“He doesn’t take a stage, he commands it,” Williams said.

The Frightening Lesson of the CIA From America’s Foremost Investigative Reporter

Why do we begin this article with a photo of presidents John F. Kennedy and Harry Truman?

Wait for it!

A great thrill and privilege of mine was to meet one-on-one with American investigative reporter Jack Anderson in the late 1970s at Texas State University (Southwest Texas State University in 1977). It was a giant dose of reality that transformed my entire outlook about government and the press.

Journalism professors Jeff Henderson and David Yates arranged for the 30 minute meeting–between Anderson’s speeches, visits to classes and formal activities–as sort of a reward for me earning investigative reporting awards at state, regional and national competitions.

Jack Anderson with SWTSU Journalism professor David Yates (right)

.

We specifically talked about two major topics of the day. In Texas, Fred Carrasco, known as “The Heroin Merchant” had been captured and imprisoned after a shootout with police at a south San Antonio motel. I shared additional information with Anderson about the broken factions of the Carrasco crime organization.

I was not prepared for his candor as he provided frightening overview of a corrupt Central Intelligence Agency and their “Operation Mockingbird.” It absolutely terrified me.

CONTROL AMERICA’S THINKING

In summary, he said that the CIA was using propaganda and deception to control America’s thinking. He called it “an assault on citizen’s right to know.”

Like so many millions, I watched his reports on ABC’s Good Morning America program for nine years. But on this particular day in a second story office of Old Main in San Marcos, Texas, Anderson looked me straight in the eyes and said, “Thomas Jefferson sought to lay this issue at rest when two centuries ago he argued that the people’s right to know is more important than the officials’ right to govern.”

Then, changing my life forever, America’s best known investigative reporter revealed the CIA was:

🔹shutting down channels of information to the electorate;

🔹seeking to penalize reporters (including him) whose stories could expose their manipulation and illegal activities; and

🔹planting, controlling and inserting ‘disinformation’ to the American public via news agencies.

Anderson wrote a column that was syndicated in over a thousand newspapers, including The Washington Post. He was the subject of a Time magazine cover story under the headline “Supersnoop,” he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1972, and he was featured on “60 Minutes.”

Richard Nixon despised Anderson so much that he had his henchmen, known as the “Plumbers,” to plan a way to get rid of him.

Years later, Mark Feldstein, the chair of broadcast journalism at the University of Maryland, revealed in his book Poisoning the Press: Richard Nixon, Jack Anderson, “exasperated, the Plumbers turned to the one method of silencing Anderson that would work permanently—murder.”

🔹H. Howard Hunt and Gordon Liddy, under orders from Charles Colson, met and plotted potential ways to kill Anderson. They interviewed a retired CIA poison expert to determine whether they could poison him without detection. They put Anderson under surveillance to see if there was a location on his regular route to potentially stage a fatal auto accident.

🔹They staked out his home to case the vulnerable points of entry that could be penetrated to swap prescription medications for poison.

🔹The most bizarre consideration was the idea of lacing Anderson’s steering wheel with LSD, thus causing an accident.

🔹Finally, they decided that the best means would be to stage a mugging that would end in Anderson’s death. Liddy later claimed that he had volunteered for the latter and was satisfied with breaking Anderson’s neck. Before his death, Hunt also corroborated the scheme to kill Anderson.

🔹Colson called off the plan to kill Anderson, as the funds had been earmarked elsewhere. Six weeks later, the burglars were arrested at the Watergate complex.

Nixon left office and died in 1994. Anderson passed away at 81, in 2005.

Now, with what I just shared with you, keep in mind that I closely followed Anderson, the topic of CIA’s involvement with clandestine media manipulation and mind control activities for five decades. Consider the following:

“You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month.” – CIA operative discussing with Philip Graham, editor Washington Post, on the availability and prices of journalists willing to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories.

“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” — William Colby, former CIA Director, cited by Dave Mcgowan, Derailing Democracy.

“There is quite an incredible spread of relationships. You don’t need to manipulate Time magazine, for example, because there are [Central Intelligence] Agency people at the management level.” — William B. Bader, former CIA intelligence officer, briefing members of the Senate Intelligence Committee

“The Agency’s relationship with [The New York] Times was by far its most valuable among newspapers, according to CIA officials. [It was] general Times policy … to provide assistance to the CIA whenever possible.” — The CIA and the Media, by Carl Bernstein.

“Senator William Proxmire has pegged the number of employees of the federal intelligence community at 148,000 … though Proxmire’s number is itself a conservative one. The “intelligence community” is officially defined as including only those organizations that are members of the U.S. Intelligence Board (USIB); a dozen other agencies, charged with both foreign and domestic intelligence chores, are not encompassed by the term…. The number of intelligence workers employed by the federal government is not 148,000, but some undetermined multiple of that number.” — Jim Hougan, Spooks

John F. Kennedy & Harry Truman

“For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the government…. I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations.” –former President Harry Truman, 22 December 1963, one month after the JFK assassination, op-ed section of the Washington Post, early edition

What is the Effect of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Muscle Recovery After Strenuous Exercise?

 

Courtesy of Green Pasture

🔹Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) due to physical exercise reduces the ability to perform intensive physical training and participate in sports at high levels.

🔹Omega-3 fatty acids may provide a partial protective effect against development of DOMS and may accelerate recovery after damaging exercise.

🔹Because cod oil produced through fermentation contains natural bioactive compounds such as Vitamins A and D along with omega-3 fatty acids, it may assist in the recovery from DOMS. 

Effect of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Muscle Recovery After Strenuous Exercise

By Dr. Subramaniam Sathivel

Physical exercise, particularly resistance exercise, often results in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) that peaks 1-2 days after the exercise and takes up to 5-6 days to get resolved. 

DOMS has shown to reduce the ability to perform intensive physical training and to play sports at high levels.  

There is evidence to suggest that omega-3 fatty acids could provide a partial protective effect against development of DOMS and may even accelerate recovery after damaging exercise. 

The main omega-3 fatty acids are alpha linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

EPA and DHA, in particular, may reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines while raising anti-inflammatory markers. Some researchers have reported that omega-3 supplementation decreases the soreness after exercise. They found that individuals are able to perform a specific type of exercise at increased levels after omega-3 supplementation, and concluded that omega-3 supplementation could decrease the severe localized soreness due to this type of exercise.

Based on these findings they believe that omega-3 supplements could be beneficial to athletes, especially athletes involved with high-intensity strength training. Other researchers have suggested that fish oil containing omega-3 fatty acids could be a natural anti-inflammatory.

Researchers have investigated the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on muscle soreness over three days in competitive soccer players. Their findings showed that the soccer players experience muscle damage due to the high demand of physical activities during soccer games and were able to show that combining omega-3 fatty acids with a multi-ingredient supplement resulted in protection of the muscles from damage during exercise and reduced muscle soreness in recovery.

They speculated that a possible reason for these desirable effects is that the omega-3 fatty acids improve the structural integrity of the muscle cell membrane before exercising. This could lead to protection of the muscle fibers in the active muscles from developing DOMS.

In a study done by a group of researchers the effect of a high dose and low dose of EPA on the recovery from muscle damage induced by exercise was looked at. 

Twenty-seven physically active males participated in this study. They used 100 plyometric drop jumps to induce muscle damage. The participants were tested for muscle soreness and isokinetic muscle squat jump performance.

The researchers found that those who took the high EPA dose were able to return to their baseline performance faster.

Another group of researchers investigated how muscle soreness in 20 professional Rugby players was affected by the consumption of a protein-based supplement containing omega-3 fatty acids. They observed a moderate beneficial effect of omega-3 fatty acids in reducing fatigue. 

The researchers concluded, “The moderate beneficial effect of adding fish oil to a protein-based supplement on muscle soreness translated into the better maintenance of explosive power in elite Rugby Union players during pre-season training.”

Fish oils, including cod liver oil, contain these beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. With that in mind, cod liver oil may be useful for muscle recovery from intensive exercise.
