Golden Earrings (1947)

On a Paris bound airplane in 1945, Colonel Ralph Denistoun, of British Intelligence, is being interviewed by American correspondent Quentin Reynolds. His story begins in Germany in 1939, before war had been officially declared, but he and fellow agent Richard Byrd, stationed in Germany, are being held prisoner, incommunicado, because of their knowledge of a deadly poison gas formula perfected by Professor Krosigk for the Nazi war machine. Escaping, Denistoun and Byrd go separate ways, agreeing to meet later at a Freiburgn sign post on the road near Eschbach. Denistoun is making his way through the woods when he meets Lydia, a Hungarian gypsy girl, who offers to help him. She pierces his ears for dazzling golden earrings, stains his skin, dresses him in Zigeneur clothes and teaches him to read palms. His disguise if perfect and he emerges unharmed from several encounters with Nazi patrols. Byrd is killed by the Gestapo, leaving Denistoun on his own to contact Krosigk, a violent anti-Nazi, who gives the Britisher the secret of the poison gas. Aided by Lydia and Zoltan, the gypsy leader, Denistoun escapes from Germany across the Rhine to France, with a promise to return to Lydia after the war.  Starring Ray Milland, Marlene Dietrich and Murvyn Vye.

U-Verify Report: Gun Control Is a Worldwide Failure

Filmed at the Oregon City waterfall just south of Portland, Waldemar Perez provides an excellent presentation using mainstream media articles to demonstrate why gun control does not work to protect public safety but instead increases violent crime as countries like Brazil and Panama are now easing gun restrictions in an effort to reduce their excessive violent crime that was exacerbated by strict rules over gun possession.  You have to admire Waldemar Perez for his choice to avoid the main purpose of the 2nd Amendment and address the ancillary, heavily over-emphasized and grossly inaccurate claims about guns and public safety.

Step by step, Perez essentially obliterates the rationale behind recent Oregon State petitions for a legislative ban on so-called ‘assault weapons’.  In addition, he makes it very easy for citizens to do their own research (U-Verify) and come to their own conclusions about this issue.  Perez will be a regular on The Portland Feed.

Here are the links he refers to in his presentation.
