    Joe Biden's approval rating is not good. Sad! Not good! Here are seventeen things with higher approval ratings than Joe Biden: 1. Candy corn - Even these tasteless cones of wax fare better in the polls than Sleepy Joe. 2. Prostate exams - Uncomfortable but at least they don't last four years. 3. The restrooms at Walmart - Unsanitary but they've never tried to sniff our hair. 4. The decision to cancel Firefly - Next time Joe Biden wants to stab us in the back, he should have the guts to do it to our face. 5. DMV employees -...

    The attack on Pearl Harbor was "Japan's attempt to roll back Euro-American colonialism." A University of North Carolina course titled "Global Whiteness" blames the West in general and the United States in particular for Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent Pacific Theater battles of World War II. Campus Reform obtained the syllabus for the course that characterizes the Pacific Theater fight as "the first global attack on white Anglo-American hegemony" and "Japan's attempt to roll back Euro-American colonialism." The course's required text is Theodore Allen's The Invention of the White Race, vol. 2: The Origin of Racial Oppression...

    Media access to Vice President Kamala Harris's address to U.S. troops at Pearl Harbor was suddenly blocked on Thursday. No explanation was given, according to the White House press pool, but the move came hours after two explosions outside the airport in Kabul killed 13 U.S. service members and 60 Afghans during evacuations....

    ere's What You Need to Remember: In the event of war with the United States over disputed Pacific territories, Chinese forces likely would attempt to neutralize forward-deployed U.S. forces in Japan and Guam and at sea. The U.S. military must find ways of defeating any attempt by China to launch surprise strikes using non-nuclear weapons, analyst Sam Goldsmith argued in a new article for Naval War College Review. “China likely would aim to confine itself to the use of conventional weapons during any potential high-intensity conflict with the United States—particularly given that China already possesses a lethal array of long-range,...

    WHAT WOULD CHINA HAVE TO DO BEFORE WE REALIZE WE ARE UNDER ATTACK?I wasn’t around on December 7, 1941. I’m not quite that old. But I live in Hawaii and I have paid respects at the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor many times. President Trump and First Lady Melania have also done so. I often see Pearl Harbor as I drive on the H-1 freeway from West O`ahu toward downtown Honolulu. I have watched the old black-and-white newsreels of the attacks by the Japanese zeros on that Date That Will Live in Infamy. Today Japan is no longer our...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    The origins of the Pearl Harbor attack can be traced back to 1853 when the United States essentially forced a feudal Japan to open trade via Commodore Matthew Perry’s squadron of armed ships. Japan, at that time was very much like much of Europe was centuries before with warlords using the obsolete sword as the primary weapon of war duking it out among their various tribes with little central control. This forced Japan out of some 250 years of self-imposed isolation from the rest of the world and they opened one port for international trade. Other nations, including Russia soon...
  • The 79th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the Day of the Lord!

    IFB ^ | 12/7/20
    Today (December 7th) marks the 79th year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor naval base. How sad that this date - which would live in infamy - has been nearly forgotten by toady's American population and especially our youth. Tragically it has been the successful revision of our American history by the Left and the evils of it that has made us weak and vulnerable to a present day "Pearl Harbor" of EXPONENTIAL proportions (Rev. 6). It was under the deception of peace and negotiations that Japan struck without warning. To set the stage for 1941, tensions were high...

But let’s take a moment to remember the tragedy and the courage that unfolded at Pearl Harbor 79 years ago today, and the triumph that ultimately ensued. As I do every year, I offer for your viewing my son’s 2017 Eagle Scout project video biography of USS Arizona survivor Lou Conter. Now there are only two. I’m happy to report our friend Mr Conter is hale and hearty and recently celebrated his 99th birthday. He vows...

    Marshal Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto commanded the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War II until he was killed in April 1943. Despite the dialogue from the 1970 WWII film "Tora! Tora! Tora!" Yamamoto probably did not say in the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." But Yamamoto likely either wrote or said something similar: "I can run wild for six months ... after that, I have no expectation of success." Yamamoto summed up a general feeling among the Japanese admirals that...

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif), leader of this year's unsuccessful attempt to remove Trump from office via impeachment, is expected to head up this ad hoc committee. President Trump has questioned the timing of this announcement and suggested that "we win the war against this virus rather than wasting precious time and scarce resources trying to allocate blame now. After we've won this war we can assess what went wrong and what went right so we can be better...

    In the pre-dawn hours of 30 December, Ensign Frank M. "Fuzzy" Fisler and his crew made their way through a blacked-out Pearl Harbor to the seaplane base. Their briefed flight plan was to take their PBY-5 Catalina out 500 miles on a heading of 258 degrees, turn right 90 degrees and fly 50 miles, then head home. Weather was forecasted to be rough with a winter storm passing through, churning up 30 to 40-foot seas.

"I think killing a country's major general is an act of war," Paul said. "I don't think you can get away with saying it's 'imminent.' They've been complaining for years about Soleimani. I mean, most of the killings that are attributed to him are, I think, are from the Iraq War. You know, ten years ago or...
