Remembering Ritchie Valens (1941-59)

leave a comment »


Ritchie Valens was almost 18 when he was killed in a plane crash.

Ritchie Valenzuela was born in LA and became one of the first Mexican-Am rockers.
His life inspired “La Bamba”, a great movie from the 1980’s.
His story was also part of Don McClean’s “American Pie”, a song written in the early 1970’s about the death of Buddy Holly!
We posted a bit about Ritchie’s tragic death in 50 years ago: “The day that “music died
It was a post remembering the anniversary of Buddy Holly’s death. (Valens was touring with Holly when their plane went down in a snow storm!)
I love Buddy Holly’s songs. Over time, I came to admire Ritchie Valens’ songs, too!
Ritchie’s music was full of energy and excitement.
Ritchie was not around to record a lot of songs. He did have hits with “La Bamba”, “Donna”, “Come on let’s go” and “We belong together”.

‘Groundhog Trump’ came out and saw Iran’s shadow

leave a comment »


Michael Flynn of the Trump administration has come out and put Iran on notice:   

Michael Flynn, President Trump’s national security adviser, said the administration was “officially putting Iran on notice” for the test launch and for what he called Iran’s threatening and destabilizing actions in support of Houthi rebels seeking to overthrow a U.S.-backed government in Yemen.

The statement marked the new administration’s first public foray into an issue on which Trump had promised to take a hard line. It followed U.S. military ground action Saturday against al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen — the first counterterrorism mission approved by Trump — in which a U.S. service member was killed.    

Flynn said Iran had been “emboldened” by “weak and effective” U.N. and Obama administration policies, including agreements such as the 2015 deal designed to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

Frankly, it’s about time.    


Since 2009, the Obama administration turned its back on the people of Iran because it was desperate to do a “deal”. It sat back when U.S. Navy personnel was captured and humiliated on video. We have done nothing about steady naval provocations. And we gave the regime a bunch of cash and have nothing to show for it.

So let’s put Iran on notice. Let Iran know that the “Trump groundhog” did not like what he saw and will take a different posture toward a regime that is not a friend of the U.S.
