    I know Bad Eagle from his writing which I’ve been reading for about seven years now. He was a true patriot in an era when that is rare. I did like his view of the U.S. as a child that he encouraged others to take care of. It was also refreshing to read about his occasional comments on Sabbatarianism.

    I am very sad to read this news about Doctor Yeagley. He was a good and honest man who loved the Lord, his country, and most of all his Comanche people.

    He will be missed.

    When I read this post yesterday, I felt like I was kicked in the stomach. Although I never had the privilege of meeting him, I marveled at his ability as a wordsmith. He certainly fought the good fight and is awaiting the Glorious Resurrection promised by our Lord.
    May God grant his Peace to his family and friends.

    To all of David Yeagley’s friends …

    If I may, I would like to share a couple of paragraphs from Dr. Yeagley’s best and greatest post … at least in my opinion. He titled it “To be Jewish.” No one else could be so open and honest with his thoughts.

    He writes … “I desire God. I desire that which I am not.

    Sara Eisner, offered me something that I could never have hoped to find, though searching earnestly. I met Sara in Caesarea, Israel, in 1998. I never expected that the most precious thought I could ever think would come from a Jewish woman, or that it would come 14 years later.

    Sara knows all about my preoccupations with religion, Bible, art, and ethnicity. She’s well aware of the Jesus story, and my peculiar writhings therewith and therein. We speak freely. Recently, in a bout of profundity, she said, as a matter of course … ‘David, you don’t have to be Jewish. Jesus was Jewish for you.’

    My soul was silenced.

    I desire the superlative, the best, the ultimate. I desire God. I desire that which I am not. Her words bespoke a deeper understanding of Christ than I have ever heard in my entire life of religious pursuits.

    She knew what I wanted. She knew me.”


    I will miss reading David’s heart felt wisdom. The world was made a better place because of who he was and what he taught.

    Good-bye my brother in Jesus.

    Probably one of the most intelligent and passionate people I have had the pleasure of communicating with. I knew this sad day was coming and yet the news hit me like a truck. I hope that this website will live on as David’s words and thoughts are priceless. R.I.P. David.

    David Yeagley: A modern voice crying in the wilderness and a clear beacon of hope and inspiration to his readers. He was true friend to us all. His perspective on current world events was unique in journalism and no one can replace him. We all cannot help but greatly miss him. I am so very glad that he knows perfect peace and happiness now.

    I first became familiar with Dr. Yeagley thanks to his writing on When I learned of his death, my heart sank. I have no Comanche blood though I’m told that there is a bit of Indian blood that I have not discovered
    in my family research. Yet my Dad’s family goes a very long way back in the Land of the Six Nations and I can recall when I learned of these Civilized People.
    I can also recall the encyclopedia my Dad gave me as a child and how one entry
    described the very high percentage of “American Indians” that put on the uniform
    of the United States and defended this nation in its wars. It made me very proud.

    One thing I know for sure is that I have Scots and Irish blood and I see so much in their experience that parallels that of this nations Tribes. They, too, were divided by a common enemy and by each other. Some of my own Scots ancestors were forced to leave their own nation or change their names or be killed. Ever heard of Rob Roy?

    It saddens me when I hear any of this land’s Tribes herded into attacking Israel. It sounds too much like a rehash of yesteryears. Same tactics, but the faces have changed. I love history and now I see that too few learn from the past.

    May the spirit of Bad Eagle soar. May he be warmed at the camp fire of the People in winter and may a cool breeze meet him in summer as he looks over the land.

    Thank you Dr. Yeagley for sharing your wisdom with those of us, who would not have had the good fortune to meet you were it not for the internet.

    Well, Dave, it’s been a few days now. It appears you made a larger impact than you thought. There were certainly so many areas of human endeavor for you to impact weren’t there? You did what you could.

    When I met David 35 years ago he was wearing a cap to cover his bald head (though hair had just begun to grow back). He’d been through an earlier battle with cancer. I found him a most fascinating human being. Of all the many memories I have there is one that remains so fresh, and it is one of the oldest.

    David was taking care of an apartment while the tenants were away. He often juggled from place to place, the seeming nomad of higher education. Not much of any furniture was in that ground level place, in one of New Haven’s nicer neighborhoods. But there was a grand piano.

    I asked to him to play. He say down and fiddled a bit, and then he played, totally off the cuff, the most charming, mysterious, light, and jazzy version of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ I have ever heard. It was enthralling. I wish I could remember every not, every chord.

    When he finished there was a hint of silence that seemed to last for hours. A cushion of comfort rested in the room as the piano slowly feel back into rest and peace.

    Over the years I asked him to play it again. “Yeah, well, no, no, can’t do it. Can’t do it,” he’d say. “That was … unique. A … special moment in time, you know. A one-of-a-kind musical event. It … totally impossible to recreate.”

    Indeed. That was David Yeagley.

    It’s starting to hurt now, to know we won’t ever be reading another article from you, David. It’s becoming a reality; the tears have finally come.

    You had a unique voice that wasn’t afraid of the consequences. Good or bad you let it all out for the world to see! That’s what I’m going to miss the most, as well as your witty sense of humour. (:^D Lol I found myself looking in the archives reading old posts of the past, some making me laugh out loud, others are of no consequence now. Long forgiven.

    I’m going to miss you, my friend, more than I thought possible. There’s nothing now, just :( Nobody has your courage or bravery or intellect. It’s always a sad day when an Indian dies, but your passing in particular I feel will have reverbations throughout Indian Country that we haven’t even begun to realize.

    I am sad to read that Dr.Yeagley is no longer physically with us on this plane of existence. To say he is a “true patriot” would be a cliche but having run into so call “true patriots” , he is the genuine article.

    I am also sad that he seems to be the last of those who really spoke their mind and would say hell with political correctness. There were times that I disagreed with him but he had a way to disagree with one but be respectfull. If you were an enemy of the USA then he would not hold back his passion about for this country and how our politicians are passing laws allowing the slow death of this great nation. I love how he was not afraid to say he love the USA without any disclaimers. This is why I love reading his articles because he would always write about how much he cared and love this country to let it die the way it is slowly dying.

    I will admit that Dr.Yeagley (even now I can not call him Doc) was a true Renaissance man who used the arts to enlighten people from his music to his writiings. Though when he would talk about religion, a lot of the subject would fly over my head since I am not into religion or religious studies. I claim ignorance over his faith but the articles I read, he seem to have a great fascination of the Jewish religion and again alot of his writing on this matter had me scratching my head. He was also not ignorant of how Islam is not a religion compatible with our American way of life with Sahria law and he would say it time after time.

    I bet now the enemies of Dr. Yeagley are probably happy and even celebrating his death but they fail to know that there are other people who feel embolden with Dr. Yeagley’s spirit to keep the fight.

    This will take some time for all this sink in to me about Dr.Yeagley in some other realm where he is with ancestors and other people he has admired. I can imagine him now having discussions with Edgar Allen Poe about his writings. Thank you Dr. Yeagley for informing us about your true conservatism, your unabashed love for the USA, and your fight against the forces of foreign and domestic that want to bring harm to this great nation.

    So sorry to hear about David…I checked out David’s blogging on Facebook from time to time, but didn’t realize he had passed away on the 11th (this being the 22nd of March). I have been in an auto accident last month and had so many things in my life that it left little time for me to check his blogging as often as I should have. RIP, Great Warrior and all your true friends will meet you again

    That’s the impact he had on people.

    Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

    I came to this site because the text of Mr. David Yeagley, and linked to the text of struggle Serbian people against the NWO. The Serbs are a small and proud nation of its history and their homeland. Although now on his knees. Persevere in their struggle and desire to learn the truth. The text of Mr. Yeagley from November 7th, 2013 can contribute to it, so I want to thank him for that. Sad news of his death I was caught. I wish his family and all his friends to statement deepest condolences. Great people never die, they are there and living through their actions.

    I am sorry to hear this news. I had an old online friendship with yeagley, and I’m just sorry this happened. I recently visited this site back in march before he died, and apparently almost immediately after my visit, he died.

    I’m going to tell you people this straight. Lots of people I’ve known are dropping dead after coming into contact with them (even if that contact is not direct, but contact nonetheless). I believe this will continue to happen until you people wake up and realize the reason I’m still alive is because I don’t play these… games that most of you play. They are killing us. And if I ever die in a similar manner, let it be known that I knew what was really going on the whole time, and that David Yeagley was (seemingly) a friend of mine and he didn’t deserve to die. Call me crazy, I don’t care anymore. You can’t touch me.

  • 44 wendy // Mar 19, 2015 at 3:24 am   

    I’m so sorry, Jennifer, and the family of David Yeagley. I’ve only today discovered David’s blog and webpage, and I was really impressed by his observations and the effort he made to supply the most fascinating artifacts to support his theories and suppositions. I thought his comments on Jesus, His life and Ministry were so original and mystical – much like Jesus was, Himself.

    Bless you David, and thank you for the legacy of your thoughts and impressions of the most wonderful Man who ever lived.
