MYTHS ABOUT WATERGATE “Almost forty years after the Watergate arrests on June 17, 1972, three myths about it are still pervasive. First, that the scandal only concerned ‘a thirdrate burglary’ of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee. “Second, that the cover-up was worse than the crime. “And, finally that two reporters (Woodward and Bernstein of the Washington Post) ‘brought down’ President Richard M. Nixon. “Not one of these is true.” see page

heard his name. Who exactly was he? And how could such an instrumental wartime figure be lost to history? An astonishing tale of WWII espionage that reads like a classic spy thriller, AGENT GARBO is sure

to become the definitive account of this unlikely hero’s fascinating life. At the start of 1940, Pujol, later codenamed “Agent Garbo,” was an ex-soldier living in Barcelona. Horrified by what was unfolding around



Dear Mr. President Mr. President Obama, what part of illegal do you not understand? Or do you understand it all too well? So you’ve decided to give 800,000 illegal Mexican immigrants the right to vote. With you controlling the union votes and giving government assistance to all the freeloaders on welfare (I’m not referring to those men, women and children who deserve a hand up) in the form of extension of unemployment benefits, food stamps, a tax return and other government handouts, all shouldered by the hard-working middle class of America. I wonder if you’ve got it figured out how much of the black vote you expect to garner in this upcoming election? I know many hard-working black people are fed up with the way you’ve given their monies to so many undeserving groups and individuals. What next Mr. Obama? Will you be granting parole for convicted felons, murderers and child molesters? Have I crossed the line? If I have, please forgive me. But you have crossed the line when it comes to ignoring the Constitution and sidestepping Congress. I’ve said this before and it bears repeating. I hope that the Democratic Party will realize how incom-

petent you and your administration has been. If the Democrats have any integrity and love for our country, they will run Hillary Clinton or another candidate for the position of president of our great country. If I were a Democratic congressman, I’d have the courage to speak out against the damage that you have created for our country. This is by no means an endorsement for the Republican party, but a heartfelt statement that the change that we Americans are searching for has fallen on either deaf ears, incompetent politicians or both. It’s too bad we don’t have a person that has the integrity, truthfulness, and most important, the love of our country, to run for office. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a write-in candidate that had the ability to turn our country around and give us back our nation? In the last edition of the Military Press, we printed an article written over 100 years ago by President Theodore Roosevelt (please read this carefully) and in it is the quote, “Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments

to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interest, which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” If Teddy were alive today, how appropriate and right on the money his speech would be! Richard Matz, Publisher of the Military Press.

Wouldn’t it be great if we had a write in candidate that had the ability to turn our country around and give us back our nation?

The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical engineering professor named Indrek Wichman. This professor sent an email to the Muslim Student’s Association in response to the students’ protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist. The group had complained the cartoons were “hate speech.” In the email, he said: “Dear Muslim Association, 
As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest. 
I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called ‘whores’ in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France. 
This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slavetrading Muslims to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile ‘protests.’ 
If you do not like the values of the West — see the First Amendment — you are free to leave. I hope for God’s sake that most of you choose that option. 
Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.
I. S. Wichman 
Professor of Mechanical Engineering” As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn’t like this too well. They’re demanded that Wichman be reprimanded, that the


university impose mandatory diversity training for faculty, and mandate a seminar on hate and discrimination for all freshmen. The local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) jumped into the fray, apparently not believing that the good professor had the right to express his opinion. The university stood its ground in support of Professor Wichman, saying the email was private, and they did not publicly condemn his remarks. This political correctness is getting old and killing us. Contributors note: Who gives a damn whether or not it was a private email — they should print it on the front page of every newspaper across the country — and the world for that matter! If you want to live in America and reap all the benefits and freedoms that come with it, then respect the fact that we have a right of Freedom of Speech! If you don’t like it, get the hell out on the first available flight. I don’t like the fact that we can’t say the Pledge of Allegiance in schools, have to tone down the celebration of Christmas because a Nativity scene replicating the birth of Christ offends some people, or all of the frivolous lawsuits to take crosses down because they are on public land. Is there a law that Muslims must recite the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the National Anthem or have to celebrate Christmas? Hell, no. But they all have the right to read the Koran and practice their beliefs 24/7. Absolutely ridiculous. Wake up people, before our rights are completely taken away.

From Our Publisher Do you want to be called an American or Mexican or citizen of any other nationality of origin?

People who immigrate to this country whether legally or illegally should never place the Mexican flag, Lithuanian flag or any other flag nor its political beliefs before the American way of life. We have a Constitution... EMBRACE IT! We have rules and regulations... OBEY THEM, we have the best country on earth... LOVE IT. If any of the above statements either bother you or you refuse to uphold them, then pick up, pack up, and get the hell out. I’m sick and tired of cultures of any kind that feel they need to showcase their country’s beliefs and shove them down our throats. I’m of German descent and if I were to start waving the Nazi flag and condemning America, marching in the streets, and putting the Nazi flag on public high school flagpoles, do you think this would be appropriate? If your answer is no, then we need to get busy and uphold our Constitution

Why don’t we hear more from the ‘9½% movement’? We hear a lot from the 99% these days. How about a much smaller group among us? What about 9½ percent of the U.S. population who often fly under the radar? Time and time again they have proven vital to our nation’s very survival. Nearly 22 million strong this group represents each of us in virtually every pertinent demographic category; home state, sex, race & education. (http://factfinder2. Nearly 1 in 10 of us belong yet, as a group, we never seem to see them demonstrating in the streets in mass, camping in parks or picketing office buildings for a hearing of their grievances – and yes, if the truth be told they have many. More often we encounter them across a shop counter, at a PTA meeting…a family barbeque – or sadly, we don’t as we pass them unnoticed among the scattering of other homeless on our streets. Of course I speak of our military veterans – the silent 9½%. We all know one – and owe each of them a priceless debt. Have you talked to a veteran lately? Really talked? Likely they

and American ways of life. There’s is a place in this country for people to show their pride in their culture, but not at the expense of the American men and women, who have given their lives to protect and preserve the what all true Americans believe. President Obama has trampled and stomped on the Constitution and illegally proclaimed that 800,000 illegal immigrants can remain in this country even though they have broken our laws. We all know it’s his attempt to be reelected and he will go to any means to ensure a second term. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, you must know we are not putting the good of the country or our people first. When we vote we must find the best candidate no matter what party that promises, and will keep his promise, to uphold the Constitution. There is a solution that makes sense on what we should do with illegal immigrants in our country. If they are criminals either from another country or have committed crimes in the United States, they should be deported immediately. If they have not broken any laws and are working in seasonal jobs to help small or large businesses, we can and should issue them temporary IDs and they should return to their countries of origin after no more than 6 to 12 months in this country. I know that many Americans of Hispanic background may disagree but what happens to those Hispanics when we are overrun with illegals and they take the jobs away from Americans, Hispanics and others here legally trying to make a living!

All Hail

“This notion I can somehow just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively, but fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been great disservice done to the cause of getting the Dream Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true.” — Barack Obama, September 2011 By Cal Thomas


resident Obama is no longer president in the constitutional sense. He appears to have elevated himself to the role of emperor, deciding unilaterally what should be the law and what should not, bypassing Congress and placing himself in the role of Julius Caesar. First it was the revelation that he has a “hit list” from which he alone de-

cides who lives and who dies by drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen. With last Friday’s announcement that he intends to effectively grant amnesty to a category of illegal aliens, according to criteria he has set — their age, a spotless criminal record, a minimum level of education, and/or military service — the president has technically, possibly deliberately and it can be argued illegally, violated his oath of office in which he swore

to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” so help him God. Whose help does the president seek when he acts as if he is God? The Constitution empowers Congress, not the president, to make laws, but President Obama has bypassed that body to become a Congress of one and a law unto himself. The president has announced his administration won’t enforce a law passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton — the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) — because he believes it is unconstitutional. But he will craft his own immigration policy — given that the Dream Act is still in limbo — by immediately halting the deportation of and giving work permits to illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children. So not only is he president; Emperor Obama has usurped the power of Congress and the Supreme Court.

In an age of political pandering, this crass appeal for Hispanic votes has to rank near the top of anyone’s list. While the Washington Post fixates on the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-in and recalls Richard Nixon’s disdain for the Constitution, there is silence about this president’s similar disregard for that document’s constraints on executive power. Official unemployment for American citizens remains above 8 percent. Now, 800,000 noncitizens can work legally, in some cases for lower wages, thus robbing some citizens of what should be their priority place in the job line. Will those newly enfranchised noncitizens who can’t find work get food stamps and welfare checks drawn on borrowed money from China? You know they will. That is part of the president’s vote-buying contract. The Obama re-election team apparently has calculated that every vote lost by an angry unemployed American citizen will be made up for with votes from Hispanics and result in a net plus for the president. That is a dangerous gamble, especially since it assumes Hispanics who are legal citizens, or legal residents, will applaud those who violated laws they had to obey when they came to America. If a Republican president behaved in such a cavalier manner toward Congress and the Constitution he would be impeached. Again, consider Nixon and Watergate. The president’s appeal, he maintains, is about “fairness” and other notions that have nothing to do with the law. There is a constitutional and legal way to regulate people who are “undocumented.” It is through Congress, which made the laws illegals have violated. The decree of a president who unilaterally and unconstitutionally decides which laws he will uphold, in the case of DOMA, and which laws he will create, in the case of illegal aliens, in order to cynically pander for Hispanic votes, is how dictators rule.

Obama widens lead among swing-state Latinos

Military Special: 20% Off Food & Drinks Bring this ad in to receive 20% off your food and drinks. Expires 7/31/12. 8 July 1, 2012 THE MILITARY PRESS

By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News President Barack Obama has widened his considerable lead over Mitt Romney among registered Latino voters in five key swing states, according to a new poll of 2,000 voters by Latino Decisions and the pro-immigration reform advocacy group America’s Voice. Obama enjoys the biggest lead among Latino voters in Arizona, 74 percent of whom say they favor the president over Romney. On average, Obama is leading Romney 63 to 27 percent among Latinos in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Virginia. One factor behind the incumbent’s significant lead may be an increase in enthusiasm for Obama following his announcement last week that he would offer immunity from deportation to as many as 800,000 young illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as children. Fifty-eight percent of Latino voters surveyed between June 17 and 21 said they feel more enthusiastic about Obama now, compared to 9 percent who said they felt less enthusiastic about him. Overall, 60 percent of Latinos said they were “very enthusiastic” about voting in November, compared to 47 percent in a November 2011 Latino Decisions poll. While Latino voters are all U.S. citizens and not directly affected by Obama’s move, previous Latino Decisions polling has shown that more than half of all registered Latino voters know someone who is undocumented and that the vast majority favor a path to legalization for illegal immigrants in the country.


Will America get over its nudity hang-up? Historian says U.S. laws, attitudes don’t match up

As recently as January, the U.S. Supreme Court was debating whether TV networks should be fined for showing a bare body part — in this case, a woman’s butt — on an episode of ABC’s “NYPD Blue.” A lawyer arguing for the networks noted enforcement could lead to complaints about the Summer Olympics in Beijing: During the opening ceremonies a statute of a bare-breasted, bare-bottomed woman was plainly visible. A decision isn’t expected until June, but no matter the result, the very fact this is a matter before the highest court in the land troubles historian Mike Foster. America remains surprisingly prudish, or at least hypocritical, about nudity, says Foster, co-author with his wife, Barbara, of the biography, “A Dangerous Woman: The Life, Loves, and Scandals of Adah Isaccs Menken” ( “Officially, we’re uptight about nudity,” he says, “but happy to watch it in the media. Advertisers use nudity to make a buck, publishers to sell product, and protesters take it off to make a point. “Lindsay Lohan’s nude spread for Playboy earned her a million dollars and was pirated on the Internet. Helen Mirren, at 64, posed topless for a puff promoting ‘Love Ranch.’ PETA women, who strip in public for attention to animal rights — ‘go naked instead of wearing fur’ — have been joined by their men.” The “ultimate fantasy commercial” for this year’s Super Bowl featured a beautiful Colombian model looking stark naked. It was done with paint and 100 million viewers feasted their eyes on a nude illusion. Foster says our nude hypocrisy stems from the Victorian era, when actress Adah Menken was dubbed “The Great Bare” by writer/admirer Mark Twain. The Civil War-era bombshell singer and actress became famous as The Naked Lady for her starring role in “Mazeppa,” a drama in which she rode a stallion up a four-story stage mountain, apparently in the buff. She actually wore a flesh-colored body stocking, but the audience gasped — yet another nude illusion. It’s mystifying that in Western Europe, the birthplace of many American traditions and values, billboards, TV shows and commercials featuring nudity are commonplace. Nude sunbathers enjoy their nations’ beaches — and don’t go home with awkward tan lines. One hopeful sign that America’s easing up: At actress Betty White’s televised 90th birthday tribute, Tina Fey claimed the older actress told her: “Never let anyone tell you that you are not good enough to pose nude.” Yes, our favorite “Golden Girl” did it, decades ago. Yet another “dangerous woman” ahead of her time?

Stephan Talty is a widely published journalist who has contributed to the New York Times Magazine, GQ, Men’s Journal, Details, and many other publications. He is the author of Escape from the Land of Snows, the bestselling Empire of Blue Water and other books.

Pujol inserted himself into a game of international espionage, only to pull off one of the greatest feats of any double agent in history: on June 6, 1944, he diverted Nazi forces from the beaches of Normandy, helping to ensure Allied success.

Continued from page 3 him, he was determined to bring down the Nazi regime. With a string of gutsy lies and outrageous luck, Pujol traveled to Berlin and gained the Nazis’ trust, convincing the Abwehr that he had a ring of spies back in England. Of course, it would take several attempts to convince the English officials at MI5 he was actually on their side! Against all odds, with no experi-

mandy, helping to ensure Allied success. Pujol would eventually become the inspiration for wartime MI6 agent Graham Greene’s Our Man in Havana; he was also recently the subject of an Edmon Roch documentary called Garbo: The Spy. With unprecedented access and a keen journalistic instinct, Stephan Talty traveled between London and Barcelona while researching Pujol, making use of newly released MI5 and

death. His family mourned the loss, believing their husband and father dead. For decades they wondered, never knowing the truth about his heroic involvement in the war, until one summer day in 1984. Talty has worked extensively with Pujol’s granddaughter Tamara to chronicle the heartbreaking story of the family’s estrangement and eventual reunion, a story that continues to this day.

New Reptilian Camouflage

This month, soldiers will begin testing a camouflage pattern that looks more like reptile scales than terrain as part of the field-trial portion of the Army’s camouflage improvement effort. Several vendors submitted versions of the reptilian pattern with the finalists’ entries moving on to the test phase. Ultimately, the winner’s pattern could end up replacing the Army’s embattled Universal Camouflage Pattern, known as UCP, which was adopted in 2004.

Changes to Combat Pay Recommended

A Pentagon review recommends ridding the combat pay system of inequities that have allowed officers thousands of miles from battle to get better benefits proportionally than troops on the front lines in Afghanistan. The report recommends that hostile fire pay be more than the danger pay and that there be levels of imminent danger pay based on where servicemembers are. Currently they can get the danger pay for being in more than two dozen places, including Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kyrgyzstan, the Philippines and Jordan — as well as in Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia.

Help for Deployment Depression

It’s a given that frequent deployments are hard on spouses and on marriages as a whole. Wives of the deployed are more likely to be diagnosed with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and other mental health condition.

Fighting pay, regional defense spending By Rick Rogers Front & Center It’s nearly impossible for the casual reader to keep up with important military and veteran stories. I follow this stuff for a living, and most days it’s like drinking from a fire hose. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Here are some stories that deserve your attention. • The United States is ramping up its military presence in Kuwait to 13,500 troops to respond to conflicts in the Persian Gulf region. The region holds more then half of the world’s oil reserves and over a third of its natural gas so it’s hard to overstate its importance. Once-a-generation turmoil is shaking the Gulf: government change in Egypt; de facto civil war in Syria; nuclear ambitions in Iran; political crisis in Bahrain and on and endlessly on. • Despite looming troop and budget cuts, the Pentagon’s focus on the Pacific Rim should keep defense dollars flowing into San Diego County for the foreseeable future. So said the San Diego Military Advisory Council in its annual military economic impact study. San Diego’s military industrial complex kicks in a tad more than $20 billion into the region’s $177 billion annual economy and is responsible for 311,000 jobs – that’s an amazing one in four San Diego County jobs. What’s more, that spending is not expected to decline in the near term. Those worried about sequestration triggering $1 trillion in military cuts shouldn’t be. Republican and Democrats believe this a winning issue this election year and are no hurry to address it – for now. • The Pentagon needs to overhaul its combat pay system and reward younger enlisted troops who face the steepest danger with more money. The current system is a windfall for senior officers and non-commissioned officers often in the rear with the gear — and the AC, TV and Internet. So says the Quadrennial Review of Military Compensation, a study mandated by Congress every four years. “There is little correlation between exposure to danger and compensation benefits,” concluded the report. It went on to say that Congress and the Defense Department should consider measures to “strengthen the relationship between combat and compensation so that combat compensation more appropriately rewards those service members who face the greatest possibility of being injured or losing their lives as a result of hostile action.” Amen to that. My question: What took so long? This has been an issue since the fighting started in 2001 meaning there has been multiple Quadrennial Reviews on military compensation during a decade of fighting. One suggested change would make

hostile fire pay higher than imminent danger pay. Policy now sets both at $225 per month. There is no distinction between and infantryman deployed to the most dangerous place in the world and an admin clerk working in the Philippines, Cuba or Greece. • Navy commanders must soon interview for commanding officer positions. A blizzard of commanding officer dismissals has stung the Navy in recent years. Many were canned for inappropriate behavior, including several for fraternizing with the help. To end the embarrassment, the chief of naval operations has ordered a

novel pilot program. By June 4, 2013, every new commanding officer must go through a new screening process that includes: Passing a written test, receiving an informal evaluation from peers and subordinates and sitting through an oral board. • The Veterans Affairs Department hopes to cut suicides among veterans by using more video conferencing. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki told reporters at a suicide conference in Washington that leveraging telemedicine — and integrating VA and DOD medical records — might reduce the suicide epidemic that’s claiming 18 veterans a day.

In the first 155 days of the year, 154 Iraq and Afghanistan vets killed themselves. Shinseki said the video conferencing would make it easier for vets to literally see doctors. This could be particularly important in East County and other rural areas across the country. (Rick Rogers has covered defense and veterans issues for nearly 30 years.

Knowing the meaning of ‘respect’ By Bob Zimmerman Veteran Advocate As kids growing up in the ’50s and ’60s, our parents taught us to “”respect” our elders, our communities, our teachers, priests, pastors, rabbis, moms, dads and #1 was love of country. Each and every school day would begin with the Pledge of Allegiance, and thanking God for the privilege of being an American.

top six pin-up girls of world war II The term Pin-up – the depiction of women in photographs and artwork that are mass produced, representing an idealized vision of what women should look like – originated from England in the 1940s, but the practice dates back to the 1890s. The 1940s was dominated by World War II and its consequences, leading to the Cold War era. This decade also brought scientific and technological advance in the form of the Atanasoff-Berry computer, the development of the radar,

funny lady

By Kathy Griffin Look, I don’t know how Chelsea Handler does it. She presides over her own media empire — talk show, sitcom, books — all while sharing a network with Ryan Seacrest and the Kardashians. To hell with the TIME 100; she should be Person of the Year just for putting up with Khloe.

To hell with the TIME 100; she should be Person of the Year just for putting up with Khloe. What I love about Chelsea, 37, is that she gets the joke. She has not bought into the Hollywood myth that celebrities walk on water. She’s still a trash-talking gal from Jersey. Sure, she’s an extremely wealthy trash-talking gal from Jersey, but her authenticity is 100 proof. And yes, I made a vodka reference during a Chelsea Handler tribute. You knew it was coming. Few women in comedy have gotten the attention and respect of the Establishment. Chelsea has, while being raw, hilarious and unafraid to cross the line — and take it from me, that combination doesn’t always go over. And Seacrest, if you’re reading this, remember: it won’t be long before Chelsea can buy and sell you.

There was a fire one night at a convent and several retired nuns who lived on the fourth floor were trapped by the fire. They were praying for the Lord to show them a way out of the fire when one of the sisters screamed, "We need to take off our robes, tie them together and climb down to safety." Later as they were recounting the event to reporters, they were asked if they were afraid of the crude rope breaking. "Oh, no," they said. "You see, old habits are hard to break." Years ago, the chaplain of the football team at Notre Dame was a beloved old Irish priest. At confession one day, a football player told the priest that he had acted in an un-sportsman-like manner at a recent football game. "I lost my temper and said some bad words to one of my opponents." "Ahhh, that's a terrible thing for a Notre Dame lad to be doin'" the priest said. He took a piece of chalk and drew a mark across the sleeve of his coat. "That's not all, Father. I got mad and punched one of my opponents." "Saints preserve us!" the priest said, making another chalk mark. "There's more. As I got out of a pileup, I kicked two of the other team's players in the in a sensitive area." "Oh, goodness me!" the priest wailed, making two more chalk marks on his sleeve. "Who in the world were we playin' when you did these awful things?" "Southern Methodist." "Ah, well," said the priest, wiping his sleeve, "boys will be boys."

THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN A talk with Digital Effects Supervisor David Smith

By Jeri Jacquin / Movie Maven Yes, it is close, can your spidey senses feel it? Coming for the Fourth of July is one of the world’s most beloved comic book hero’s as director Marc Webb, Marvel Entertainment and Columbia Pictures “The Amazing Spiderman”. This film tells the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), a struggling teenager stumbling his way through high school. He meets the girl of his dreams in Gwen Stacy (Emma

Stone) falling head over heels for each other. One day Peter finds a briefcase belonging to his deceased father and decides he needs answers as to his parents disappearance. He heads to Oscorp and Dr. Curt Connors, Parker’s former colleague and partner. That is when Peter Parker/Spiderman clash with Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard. Peter must now make serious choices as to what his new found power will take shape as for his future and as a hero.

Spiderman has been an American icon since its creation in 1962 by writer-creator Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Creating a teenager that wasn’t trained but another superhero appealed greatly to the creators. The line “with great power comes great responsibility” that was included in the first Spiderman story and later attributed to his Uncle Ben. Through comic books, cartoon, Broadway and film, Spiderman has a place in the hearts of almost everyone. No one doesn’t recognize the iconic

blue and red suit, or the web spinner shooting out of his wrist or his ability to stick to the side of a building! Making all of this happen for THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN comes from individuals like Dave Smith, Digital Effects Supervisor for Sony Pictures Imageworks. Working on THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN is the recent work for Smith but his resume is quite impressive. Making super heroes isn’t new to him either as he worked on THE GREEN LANTERN as well as other films such as CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, HARRY POTTER AND THE SOCERER’S STONE and one of my personal quirks STARSHIP TROOPERS. He also is a graduate from San Diego State University with a degree in Television and Film. I recently was able to talk with Dave about his work and what it took to bring the new Spiderman to screen. Thanks for taking time today Dave, I really do appreciate it. Thank you Jeri. Thank you. Can you tell our readers about the technical side of what you do? My job is to run the visual technical crew we have here at Imageworks mostly from the creative side of generating the pictures, helping to design and create the environment and characters that we make here at Imageworks. We put them into shots and supervise to make sure they end up getting done and in the movie and looking good. I report to the visual supervisor Jerome Chen and the director and producers of the film as well. We present our work to them. I’m going to go geek on you right now because of STARSHIP TROOPER, seriously, love that movie! That was the very first thing I worked on here at Imageworks! They hired me on and once I got here they needed my help. That was a fun one. When people use to ask me what I did for a living I said “aliens and explosions” and if that film isn’t aliens and explosions I don’t know what is. Well, it is the best! Now on to THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN. Tell us how you got involved in the project? Yes, now its aliens, explosions and super heroes! Suprisingly enough I haven’t worked on a Spiderman movie before and we’ve done three others here at Imageworks. The work was expanding and I finished up my last project and they asked me to help out. Where you extremely thrilled to be working on this film? Generally I haven’t worked on a lot of sequels so since I hadn’t this was the best way to do it. I was pretty excited to be part of the franchise with a fresh approach. The director is new and everybody on the creative team was new so it’s a pretty exciting approach bringing it to the film. I’m very humbled by the opportunity. Do you think coming in on the fresh approach gave you an edge to bringing things to the table?`

Military Feature

BRAINS, BRAWN & LEADERSHIP “Ike” Eisenhower Dwight (Ike) Eisenhower came from poor, humble stock and went to West Point and, subsequently, the Army, to escape the poverty of Kansas as it existed at the turn of the century. Ike missed being in France in World War I but received good experience in the training duties he was assigned. After World War I, Eisenhower was fortunate to serve in the peacetime army with some top-ranked generals including Generals Fox Conner, Pershing, Douglas MacArthur, and George C. Marshall. Conner and Marshall, in particular, had a great influence on Eisenhower’s development and advancement in rank. After the U.S. entered World War II, Ike moved up fast in the Army ranks, showing a tremendous ability to compromise, if necessary, and lead the various Allied factions. He led the Allies’ assault on North Africa in 1942 (Operation TORCH). Later, when things got tough at Kasserine Pass under Rommel’s assault, Eisenhower brought in General Patton who cleared up the problem. Ike showed great insight when he defended Patton after the soldier-slapping incident when Patton almost got sacked. Eisenhower was Supreme Commander of troops who successfully invaded France at Normandy. After the war, Ike served two terms as President of the United States.

General Omar Bradley

Fleet Adm. C.W. Nimitz

Adm. Raymond Spruance

A rear admiral at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Chester W. Nimitz was promoted directly to admiral and ordered to replace Admiral Husband Kimmel as Commander-in-Chief of the US Pacific Fleet. On March 24, 1942, his responsibilities were expanded to include the role of Commander-inChief, Pacific Ocean Areas which gave him control of all Allied forces in the central Pacific. From his headquarters, he directed the successful Battles of the Coral Sea and Midway before shifting Allied forces to the offensive with a campaign through the Solomons and island-hopping across the Pacific towards Japan. Nimitz signed for the United States during the Japanese surrender aboard USS Missouri on September 2, 1945.

Spruance was criticized by some for not being aggressive enough. But, in a chess battle, as the Battle of Midway turned out to be, the brainy & cool Spruance was the perfect man for the job. At Midway, he faced the formidable and equally brainy Japanese Admiral Yamamoto who was out to knock the U.S. out of the war in one strike. In the battle, each blow by one side was met with a counter-blow by the other side. Back and forth the battle raged. Finally, in the most decisive battle in U.S. naval history, Spruance prevailed. Midway was saved.....the tide turned in the Pacific, and the U.S. went over to the offensive for the remainder of the war! He was basically a nice guy but he could fight when he had to.

Omar Bradley was born in Clark, Missouri. The son of a schoolteacher, he graduated from West Point in 1915 and rose slowly through the grades in the peacetime army. A protégé of the army chief of staff, George C Marshall, Bradley succeeded George C Patton in command of the II Corps in 1943 and led it in the Tunisia and Sicily campaigns. He commanded the US 1st Army in the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944. On August 1 he assumed command of the 12th Army Group in France; with 1.4 million combat troops, it became the largest field command in US history, which he commanded until the surrender of Germany in May 1945. A hard-working, unassuming officer, known as the “GI general’ for his concern for the welfare of ordinary soldiers, he earned a high reputation for his handling of large forces in battle. He later served as head of the Veterans Administration (1945-7) and as army chief of staff (1948--9). In 1949 he became the first chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He retired in 1953, and held a series of public and private posts during his late years. For advertising information, call (858) 537-2280

General MacArthur played a key role in U.S. military affairs for three decades — WWI to the Korean War. In WWII, he commanded the U.S. troops in the Philippines until sent to Australia as the Japanese closed in. He then directed the U.S. counterattack that eventually recovered the South Pacific islands lost to Japan. MacArthur formerly accepted the Japanese surrender and was in charge of the occupying force on Japan for years. He was virtually regarded as a God by the Japanese. When North Korea attacked South Korea, MacArthur led the UN forces and seemed to have won a great victory until the Chinese entered the war. At this time, he publicly proposed widening the war and, for that reason, was relieved of his command by President Truman who wanted to keep the war limited.

General Douglas MacArthur

Known as “Bull” to his men, Admiral William F. Halsey was Nimitz’s leading commander at sea. Shifting his focus to naval aviation in the 1930s, he was selected to command the task force that launched the Doolittle Raid in April 1942. Missing Midway due to illness, he was made Commander South Pacific Forces and South Pacific Area and fought his way through the Solomons in late 1942 and 1943. Usually at the leading edge of the “island hopping” campaign, Halsey oversaw Allied naval forces in the critical Battle of Leyte Gulf in October 1944. Though his judgment during the battle is often questioned, he won a stunning victory. Known as a maverick that sailed his fleets through typhoons, he was present at the Japanese surrender.

Fleet Adm. William ‘Bull’ Halsey

Patton early knew what he wanted to be — an American army officer and to be “great.” He worked hard to achieve his goals, studying every aspect of the military, and additionally cultivating those who could help him advance in rank. Descended from George Washington and other illustrious Americans, Patton knew he could make it big time. He felt he was a “man of destiny.” In WWII, General Patton first led about two divisions of American forces in the 1942 invasion of North Africa. After Rommel defeated Allied forces at Kasserine Pass, Eisenhower put Patton in charge of the American forces in the area, and, within two weeks, Patton had Rommel’s forces on the run. General Patton was one of the greatest American generals.

The original Warner Brothers film was a romantic comedy, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan (she played three roles in the movie). Although it didn’t do well at the box office, it subsequently became a cult hit. The story is about a man who rediscovers his life and learns about love, adventure and the importance of a good set of luggage.

Sports Interview New Chargers Defensive Coordinator

john pagano

Having spent the last 10 years on San Diego’s staff — with the last five years coaching the linebackers, John Pagano’s hard work finally paid off when he was named the Chargers defensive coordinator earlier this year on January 5. Prior to the NFL Draft, Pagano sat down with MP sports reporter Art Garcia Jr and answered a few questions about his new job. AG: It’s been a long time coming, how does it feel to finally be hired as a defensive coordinator in the NFL? JP: You know my thoughts – it’s an exciting moment, it’s an exciting time for me to be in this spot. It’s something that when I came to San Diego it’s something you look forward to, it’s something I dedicated myself to in working in this process. Each year that I’ve been here in San Diego has helped me grow into the position that I’m at. It’s very exciting. I can’t wait for the challenge, can’t wait for the task at hand. The biggest thing looking back over the years the best thing that it’s done for me is help me grow into this position and I feel that’s the most important thing for me.




WITH A VALUABLE AGENT I can help you save big time. Whether you’re just starting out or on a tight budget, the Allstate Value Plan is a great way to go. Plus, I’m always here whenever you have a question or need help. Call me today for a quote.

AG: Did you interview last year for the position? JP: Yeah, technically I did interview but it was one of those deals that you always feel that you’re ready for the time, and I respect Norv and A.J. and Dean’s decision that maybe they didn’t see me ready at that time. But as a positive it helped me grow each year that I’ve been here. AG: Was it tough not getting the job after being here nine years? JP: Was it tough? No. Was I disappointed? Yes, you’re always going to be disappointed but it didn’t reflect how I coached with the players or how my day-to-day role was going to change or not. I looked at it as a positive deal I never looked at it as a negative aspect – just more or less disappointed because as a coach you’re always working towards becoming a coordinator or maybe a head coach someday. AG: Having been here 10 years do feel you have more of an advantage because you already know the strength and weaknesses of the players whereas Manusky came in relatively new although he coached here from 20022006? JP: The biggest advantage I have probably than somebody coming in that’s done it for a while is the knowledge of their (players) strengths and weaknesses. Sure that’s a positive, but it can be a negative in effect that I may think a player can’t do something that maybe he can do – something we’ve never seen him do. So I think there are pluses and minuses in both of those situations. But

I’d say more of a positive just knowing the players and being around the system and the organization all of these years. AG: What’s your philosophy as a coach – are you more aggressive or read and react or does it depend on the situation? JP: I think the biggest thing is, is trying to figure out what our identity is going to be. My biggest thing with philosophy is that we are going to be fundamentally sound number one. Number two we’re going to tackle the guy with the football and number three we’re going to put pressure on the quarterback – and it all starts with fundamentals and being technique sound. When we do all those things together our identity is going to show. Everybody wants to say they’re going to come out and be aggressive or this and that … there’s a plan in my mind right now of how I want it to be, but it kind of defines more or less how the players react to game situations and what not. AG: Does it depend on the players you have? JP: You’re always looking to get better at every position – if you have talented players or impact players who can change the game for you they make you a better coach regardless of what is called in any game. AG: Your father coached high school football for 26 years, how much of an impact did it have on you and what is the best thing you learned from him?

JP: It was just growing up in a football family and seeing that type of atmosphere number one. Number two, just really the structure and discipline he had with his teams – you know, the biggest thing I always saw was how the players always played for him and how they responded to him. I’m a firm believer that if you can get these guys to go out and play for you and do the things you need to do and do those things you need to get done anything can be accomplished – those are the things I learned from my father. Seeing him and how disciplined and structured they were, attention to detail was a big part of his success there. And he had a lot of success as a high school coach winning three state championships and he had a lot of great players in those times. But just seeing that, looking back on it, you always start taking bits and pieces from what you grow up in – it’s the same thing with my brother (Chuck Pagano/ Head Coach Indianapolis Colts). AG: Do you and your brother send video tapes to your father for advice like the Harbaugh’s do with their father? JP: We’ve never gone to the extent of the tape, but the biggest thing I have is I have to talk to my father before the game. Whether I’m on the bus riding to the stadium or I’m in my car driving to Qualcomm (Stadium) there has to be a point where I call him. There was one time a couple of years ago where it was a Monday night game or a Sunday night game and I think I talked to my dad the day before or earlier that day and I was going to the stadium and something didn’t feel right — we were in pre-game warm-ups and we’re coming in off the field and I had to run into the locker room to call him. It’s not a superstition thing; it’s just something when I was a college player I made sure I called my dad before each game and now it’s something that has stuck with me for over 25 years. It’s a comfort but more or less it’s a relief to hear his positive notes – like if we’re playing a certain opponent (he’ll say) ‘Hey, you know what this team’s about but you guys are going to do this and this.’ He’s always positive, so it’s that last positive reassurance (that re-enforces his self confidence).

Move over, Fast & Furious A new racing movie is about to be born

Following months of rumors and whispers, Electronic Arts, the people behind the Need for Speed franchise, recently announced that a movie based on the popular racing game is currently under development. EA’s new partnership with DreamWorks Studios paved the way for NFS to be adapted to the big screen, thanks in large part to the latter’s acquisition of film rights to the game. No word yet on what kind of story is being developed for the movie, but apparently, people from DreamWorks are currently doing their own version of production ’need for speed’ in order to begin the framework for the movie in time for its 2014 release. Directing the movie will be Scott Waugh, who recently made news with Act of Valor, a real-life movie featuring U.S. Navy Seals. Joining Waugh on the NFS movie team are writers George and John Gatins, both of whom are responsible for penning some of Hollywood’s recent flicks, including She’s Out of My League and Real Steel. Legendary director and Dreamworks co-founder made no bones about his excitement in getting to work on the Need for Speed movie. “I’m excited about getting back into the creative trenches with John and George Gatins and my partners at EA to bring to life an exhilarating script based on an epic video game that seems to have been made for the movies.” Can’t say we disagree with the man.

This issue, we’re driving Acura’s all-new 2013 RDX, finished in all wheel drive (AWD) with the technology package. This new Crossover that is making the competitors stand up and take notice, as, Acura’s reputation for luxury and reliability is renowned and the RDX’s pricing starts at just $34,320. The biggest change appears under the hood, as the former four-cylinder turbo is replaced by a more powerful and smooth 273-horsepower, 3.5 liter V6. The engine couples to a fine shifting and properly geared six-speed automatic transmission, resulting in excellent torque, great passing abilities, and very respectable EPA numbers of 19 city and 27 highway. The front

drive delivers 20 and 28, respectively. On the highway, Acura’s ride, nimble handling, great comfort, quiet interior and all the amenities the brand is noted for are built in to each RDX. Safety features include all the air bags, great four-wheel ABS disc brake system and all the “electronic assistance” utilized by car manufacturers nowadays in stopping and keeping vehicles in a straight line. In summary, Acura’s 2013 RDX earns a solid “Test Drive” best buy recommendation. We drove over 400 miles during our week long test, and the RDX delivered one of most enjoyable and functional drives to date. Be it loading tools after a visit to the hardware center, stacking bags of groceries or passing a truck on a 65mph freeway, RDX performed up to its slogan...”bigger than life.” Your Acura dealer also has some special July 4 deals for you, so stop in and drive one if you are shopping in the Crossover/SUV market. Likes: New drivetrain, interior, exterior, price, Acura quality. Dislikes: Rear blind spots, not much else.

Remove Your Unwanted Fat Today By Dr. Tom Pousti


pproved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting smoothly cools undesired fat cells in the body resulting in a painless, controlled eradication of fat cells. The CoolSculpting method is based on science performed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Research determined that fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures and when introduced to these cold climates are effortlessly and permanently demolished. Beginning weeks after the cooling application, the cooled fat cells initiate the process of solidifying the fat cells without destroying surrounding tissues, eventually causing the cells to shrink and disappear naturally. Gradually as the cells diminish, the depth of the fat layer will be reduced. Different from other techniques of fat loss, CoolSculpting excludes the use of needles, anesthesia or pain medication, recovery time or restrictions, and surgery. Throughout the treatment, controlled cooling is administered with a non-invasive applicator to an area intentionally targeting fat cells. As the procedure is initiated, vacuum pressure draws tissue into an applicator cup between cooling panels. The vacuum pressure may cause sensations of deep pulling, tugging and pinching in the area being treated. The procedure can take one to two hours depending on the area(s) being treated. Undeniable results are seen with one treatment but for more dramatic effects you may wish to have additional treatments performed. Results are sometimes visible within three weeks following your treatment, but full results will be noticeable within two to four months.

ou might have heard First Lady Michelle Obama tell a reporter a few days ago that, when it comes to exercise, she likes to “mix it up” and “make it fun.” No matter what your political views are, or who you are going to vote for in November, fact is Mrs. Obama is right and you can’t go wrong in following her lead “to mix it up and make it fun” when embarking on a workout program. “It’s true that variety is a spice of life and this extends to physical activity as well,” says Israel LoBue, owner of Fit Body Boot Camp in San Diego, CA. “There are definite advantages to making your exercise as varied and diverse as possible.” This message is especially important for people who are creatures of habit and like to stick with just one routine – no matter how dull and monotonous it becomes after a while. LoBue points out, however, that boredom is just one side effect of a “blah” workout. “Another thing to remember is that for exercise to be effective and beneficial long-term, it has to challenge your body and all the muscle groups in new ways,” he says. “If it doesn’t, your fitness level, strength, endurance, and weight loss might stop increasing. You are no longer progressing but just coasting. That’s when many people get frustrated by lack of results and give up their program altogether.” What should you do to prevent your body from getting accustomed to your usual routine and stop responding to it? It’s simple – surprise it with some bold, new moves! And good news is you don’t you have to be the President’s wife – or even a Democrat - to work out like the First Lady. If you need help varying and mixing up your routine, LoBue suggests joining a boot camp. And, if you think that boot camp workout is all hard work and no play, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. “Many people are surprised at how much fun boot camp really is — we keep campers moving, engaged, and enjoying their workout – just as Mrs. Obama suggests,” LoBue says. LoBue, a certified fitness expert with 10 years experience in the fitness industry, can be reached at or 619-757-9018.
