Pearl Harbor Day 2017 … December 7th, 1941, a Date That Will forever Live in Infamy …
Today marks the 76th anniversary of the day the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked the Empire of Japan and the United States would never be the same. We remember those brave men and women that died that fateful day. And we honor those that survived and fought on to defend the United States, freedom and liberty. The reprehensible and treacherous sneak act unified a country and awoke a sleeping giant that provided the resolve to win a war against the evil Axis. It was that resolve, leadership and focus on the enemy that enabled the United States and its Allies to victory. God bless all those who lost their lives on that fateful day.
We give thanks, praise and remember those from Our Greatest generation who made the ultimate sacrifice 76 years ago today. The Japanese did infact awaken a sleeping giant and America showed its great resolve.
Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE UNFORTUNATELY CAN NOT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS, YET ANOTHER FAKE NEWS STORY …
Racial slurs are obviously hateful. Those that do them are ignorant fools who deserve out scorn. However, sadly we are presented yet again with another fake news story passed off as a “hate” crime. It was not a hate crime, it was a hoax. This past September the liberal MSM went insane after five black students reported racial slurs posted outside their dormitory rooms at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The liberal media was all too quick to jump on this story, because it fit their narrative. America is racist. President Trump is racists, blah, blah, blah. The incident caused the Air Force Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria to deliver a powerful speech after the reports to all 4,000 cadets at the academy denouncing racism. The speech told the racists responsible for these slurs “to get out.”
Guess what, the incident was a hoax, it was fake news. CNN admitted on Thursday the the much reported Air Force hate crime was a hoax by a black student at the academy. Imagine that? So sorry the liberal media had to eat crow once again.
Racial slurs posted outside the dorm rooms of five black students at the Air Force Academy were written by one of those students, the school said Tuesday.
The announcement was a jarring turn in an episode that prompted the academy’s superintendent to warn students that racists were not welcome at the school — a speech that attracted nationwide attention.
The student is no longer at the school, the academy said. A spokesman declined to say whether the student withdrew or was expelled, citing privacy laws. The student’s name wasn’t released.
However, what is mystifying is the actions by the Air Force General after knowing that the slurs were a hoax. He still went along with his previous comments. Puzzling indeed … For the record– Air Force Social Justice Warrior, General Silveria, stands by his earlier lecture. Huh? Well no duh racial slurs are repugnant sir, but there were none legitimately done at the Air Force Academy. It was a hoax.
We Don’t Need More Gun Laws, We Need to Follow the Ones We Have: Air Force ‘Error’ Allowed Gunman to Buy Weapons That Were Used in Texas Church Shooting that Killed 26 People … The Air Force has Launched a Review
AIR FORCE ADMITS MAJOR SCREW UP … WE DON’T NEED MORE LAWS, WE NEED MORE DETAIL AND ATTENTION TO THE ONE’S WE HAVE.
Just a day after a gunman shot and killed 26 people and wounded more than 20 others at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, the Air Force has admitted they they made an error. You might call it a fatal error. The Air Force failed to enter Devin P. Kelley’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the guns used in Sunday’s church massacre. Are you kidding me!!! From the sounds of the video below, the Air Force needs to change their rules, not just review them. Sorry, receiving a court martial due to domestic violence on your spouse and child should void you of ever owning a gun. PERIOD!
A day after a gunman massacred parishioners in a small Texas church, the Air Force admitted on Monday that it had failed to enter the man’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the rifle he used to kill 26 people.
Under federal law, the conviction of the gunman, Devin P. Kelley, for domestic assault on his wife and toddler stepson — he had cracked the child’s skull — should have stopped Mr. Kelley from legally purchasing the military-style rifle and three other guns he acquired in the last four years.
How in the hell do you screw this up? The Air Force has begun a review if how the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction. REALLY? As opined at Red Stated, the Air Force better being doing a lot more than that. According to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek, Federal law prohibited him from buying or possessing firearms after this conviction. Initial information indicates that Kelley’s domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database by the Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations.
“The Air Force has launched a review of how the service handled the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction,” the Air Force said in a statement.
The statement said Heather Wilson, the Air Force secretary, and Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, had ordered the Air Force inspector general to “conduct a complete review of the Kelley case.”
The Air Force also said it was looking into whether other convictions had been improperly left unreported to the federal database for firearms background checks.
ALL BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY better be reviewing all the cases of dishonorable discharges and make sure these individuals are in the database. They also need to review all cases of individuals who have been court martialed and tossed out if the military due to domestic assault and received bad conduct discharges. These people are criminals and need to be treated and such. A note to the LEFT, Democrats, liberals and politicians who in mere seconds after this heinous crime called for more gun control, go pound sand. So we are supposed to pass more gun control that would take the weapons out of good people’s hands to defend themselves, while we allow bureaucratic BS paperwork mistakes to allow a sick bastard like Devin P. Kelley to attain them. REALLY?
Bowe Bergdahl received a dishonorable discharge from the US Army but will avoid prison time for desertion and misbehavior before the enemy after abandoning his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009, a military judge ruled Friday.
The judge also ruled that Bergdahl’s rank be reduced from sergeant to private. Additionally, he will be required to pay a $1,000 fine from his salary for the next 10 months.
“Sgt. Bergdahl has looked forward to today for a long time,” Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s civilian attorney, said at a news conference after the sentence was announced.
“As everyone knows he was a captive of the Taliban for nearly five years, and three more years have elapsed while the legal process unfolded. He has lost nearly a decade of his life.”
The sentence is effective immediately, except for the dishonorable discharge, which Bergdahl is appealing, according to Fidell.
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) Laughs that She’s now a ‘Rock Star’ … What a Sick Indivual Who Thinks This is All About Her (VIDEO)
WTF … TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME … THE OPPOSITE OF OUR BRAVE, SELFLESS MILITARY
Check out the reaction below from Democrat Congresswomen Frederica Wilson following the words of former general John Kelly. She really is an “empty barrel” and a disgrace. Representative Wilson laughed. LAUGHED!!! Like this was all about her. And she called President Trump out as having no empathy? What kind of a sick human being gets their 15 minutes of fame off the death of a military soldier? This woman is a cold hearted, narcissist who is consumed with so much hate and thinks so much of herself, maybe it is she who has some mental issues. The people of Florida in your district must be so proud.
Take a good look America of the insanity and repulsive behavior that lives and thrives in the Democrat party these days. I am shocked and appalled as well that an elected official does not have the common decency to shut up and respect the sacrifice of a fallen solder.
Following Chief of Staff General John Kelly’s comments, Rep. Frederica Wilson actually had the audacity to say that Kelly only said it to keep his job. I think she must be confusing what she would do. Really, Gen. Kelly has served the United States in the military and lost his son, who also served? A note to this poor excuse of an individual, you will never know what it means to have the character of Gen. John Kelly. You really are an empty barrel.
‘The Five’ Rips ‘Shameful’ Rep. Wilson For Claiming ‘Gen. Kelly Just Wants to Keep His Job’
