The Marine who became immortalized by playing a brutal drill sergeant in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket” has died. R. Lee Ermey was 74. “It is with deep sadness that I regret to inform you all that R. Lee Ermey (“The Gunny”) passed away this morning from complications of pneumonia,” his manager Bill Rogers said in a statement posted to Mr. Ermey’s official Twitter account. “He will be greatly missed by all of us,” Mr. Rogers wrote. “Semper Fi, Gunny. Godspeed.” Statement from R. Lee Ermey’s long time manager, Bill Rogin: It is with deep sadness that I regret to inform you all that R. Lee Ermey

Comments:
This is one supporting actor, after seeing him in "Full Metal Jacket", that was easy to recognize in his future endeavors, just by his voice. Having been a Marine in Vietnam, he knew the "drill".

Rest in Peace, Brave Warrior.

I don´t often make definitive statements of "where" one goes when they "leave this world". I make an exception here. A good MARINE has reported for duty at an Eternal Duty Station.

SEMPER FI Gunney Sgt. Ermey

Some people brave enough to stand up to the hollywierd elites and the ´Rats end up with a knock on the door from their gestapo agents at the IRS or some other gov´t agency. Rest in Peace, Marine.

Stanley Kubrick made two movies that fascinated me, Full Metal Jacket and Dr. Strangelove. No actor has every delivered a better performance than R. Lee Ermey. After seeing that movie I have never wanted to eat a jelly doughnut. Actors Jack Webb and Don Adams were also Marine Drill Instructors. Webb played one in a movie back when movie language had to be clean. Hard to visualize Don Adams as a DI. CapmarineTet68 was one of my favorite posters. His posts were always grammatically perfect and eloquent. Never knew his name was Kevin or anything about him. Thanks for informing me.

I was not a Marine. I was U.S. Army Airborne. I fought in Hue supporting Marines, though. What I saw them do, Superman would have had to screw up courage to do. Then I fought outside of Hue, with Marines supporting us. 101st Airborne was a tough unit. That was my outfit. But, I stood in awe of the United States Marines. When i see a retired Marine, I always walk up to them and offer my hand and tell them "Thank You". There is no doubt, I owe many of them my very life.

I know God blesses each and every Marine that reports to His call. There can be no finer examples of the spirit of real men. I firmly believe God puts us into life to gain experience and to learn all the wonderful things he wishes we would learn. Marines are His most shining examples of His plan at work.

R. Lee Ermey will be greatly welcomed. I know that one day I will be there with him. I will not be surprised to see him and God are on a first name basis.

R.I.P Sarge. You have earned it.

Kevin Coughlin, #20. He was a Marine who served in Vietnam. In his spare time he helped fellow veterans get through their troubles, and tried to bring them to the Lord through his ministry. There never could be a better LDotter than Kevin. I loved that man dearly--he was what I think I should be, if I live a good life.

"R. Lee Ermey, Profane Drill Sergeant in ‘Full Metal Jacket,’ Dies at 74"

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/15/obituaries/r-lee-ermey-dead-actor.html?

From the New York Times obituary: "The clever, if profane, tirades were of his own invention, Mr. Ermey told The New York Times in 1987. “It was terrifying to those actors,” he said of the invective he spewed. “My objective was intimidation.”

This is especially funny because actors often have no clue about what basic training till our honorable discharge was truly like. (Ironically, April 16th makes it 49 years since my discharge.) Watch R. Lee Ermey´s opening tirade from "Full Metal Jacket" below:

When people used to ask me what Marine Corps boot camp was like in 1967, I would ask if they ever saw “Full Metal Jacket”. If they had, I’d tell them “it was pretty close to that.” A sad day for Marines everywhere.

RIP, Gunny.

Mueller All but Ignores the Other
Russian Hack Target: the GOP
Real Clear Investigations, by Paul Sperry    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/17/2018 4:59:15     Post Reply
Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election wasn’t as one-sided as Special Counsel Robert Mueller charges in his latest indictment. The Russian military spy agency that Mueller says hacked the Democratic National Committee also penetrated the computer systems of the Republican National Committee using fake emails in a phishing scheme, U.S. officials say. This evidence challenges the narrative, now reinforced by Mueller’s indictments, that Russia’s scheme was solely aimed at damaging Hillary Clinton. “RNC emails were stolen through the same spearphishing scams used against Democrats,” a senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the investigation told RealClearInvestigations.

Washington - A Russian woman who tried to broker a pair of secret meetings between candidate Donald J. Trump and the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, during the 2016 presidential campaign, was charged Monday and accused of working with Americans to carry out a secret Russian effort to influence American politics. Working at the behest of a Russian government official and with help from an unidentified American political operative, the woman, Mariia Butina, worked to infiltrate American organizations as a way to secretly advance Russian interests, prosecutors said.

Washington - Republican and Democratic U.S. senators said on Thursday they want the government to reinstate penalties on ZTE Corp, despite a Trump administration agreement paving the way for an end of a ban on the Chinese telecommunications company. (Snip) Many U.S. lawmakers, including some of Trump’s fellow Republicans as well as Democrats, view ZTE as a national security threat, worrying that the use of its technology in the United States could make it easier for China to steal secrets.

The much-maligned habit of ghosting has apparently made its way into the workplace. According to a recent LinkedIn article, "People are ´ghosting´ at work and it´s driving companies crazy." Ghosting is when a person abruptly goes silent or disappears without explanation. The article goes on to explain that candidates who have agreed to job interviews fail to show up without any notice or further communication and, in some cases, accept jobs only to not appear for their first day of work. "This job market is so hot right now. Unemployment is at a 18-year low. You´ve got more job openings than candidates,

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer said Tuesday that it is deferring recent drug price increases until the end of the year after an "extensive discussion" between the company´s CEO, President Trump, and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. The announcement came after Trump tweeted Tuesday that he had met with Pfizer CEO Ian Read to discuss his "drug pricing blueprint" — his plan to fulfill a campaign promise to lower drug prices across the board — and that the company would reverse the recent price hikes as a result. Pfizer confirmed the meeting in a statement, adding that it plans to defer the

Facebook is facing fresh scrutiny over its data-sharing practices following the publication of reports highlighting how a Russian internet giant with ties to the Russian government gained access to user data. On Tuesday, CNN and Wired published reports exploring how Mail.Ru built apps that were able to access Facebook user data after the social network locked down its platform in 2015. Facebook recently disclosed in written testimony to US Congress that Mail.Ru had built apps that integrated with its platform — and that it was one of a select group of app makers that was given an extension beyond the formal 2015 cut-off date.

Dallas - The government recently told four immigrant women that they must pay for DNA tests to prove they are related to the children they were separated from in order to be reunited, according to the shelter that housed the women. (Snip) The Trump administration isn’t the first to use DNA tests to verify relationships between immigrants or refugees. Under the Obama administration, the Department of Homeland Security and State Department initiated a DNA testing pilot program for refugees from certain African countries in the “Priority Three” program that reunited refugees already inside the U.S. with relatives still

The Nationality Law would establish the status of the State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people and the right of the Jewish people to self-determination in its homeland as a unique right for the Jewish people. It would also anchor the symbols of the state, Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Jewish calendar as the country´s official calendar, and the Hebrew language as the official language.

New York - The Trump administration is readying another round of tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Tuesday released a list of additional goods that could face 10% tariffs after a public comment period. It includes seafood, fruit and vegetables, yarn, wool, rain jackets and baseball gloves. The move comes after the United States imposed tariffs on Chinese goods worth $34 billion last Friday. Beijing immediately responded with its own tariffs on US goods worth $34 billion. Tuesday´s action makes good on a threat President Donald Trump made last month,

After meeting with retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy to discuss his retirement from the highest court in the US, Trump came out of it focused on replacing him with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, according to Politico. Even though he was considering other judges such as Thomas Hardiman, Amy Coney Barrett, and Raymond Kethledge for the nomination, Trump was zeroed in on Kavanaugh, who was Kennedy´s former law clerk. Trump has credited Kennedy for giving him the opportunity to transform the Supreme Court and give it more of a conservative bend, according to Politico. That will now happen if the 53-year-old

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump.

The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter.

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen.
