Approaching this anniversary of the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor is something that we do every year.
There are a lot of ways to remember infamy. USGOV saw to it that six Movietone camera crews were there on December 7 to capture all of the grizzly details for the folks back home. Maybe the attack was a surprise to Admiral Kimmel, but it wasn’t to Movietone…(war is a racket)
Japan paid dearly for the attack and today we celebrate their construction of new aircraft carriers – as a hedge against China. Maybe we should have just encouraged them to roll up all of China, rape Nanking again or something, and leave Pearl Harbor alone?
Churchill and the Brits needed America in the war and I won’t argue against that. The Japanese war machine was formidable. Their surface navy was without peer both in equipment and tactics. But for the ‘victory disease’ they suffered with and some lucky moves on our part, they might have shown up at Midway with SIX aircraft carriers. The US was still building aircraft carriers (fleet and escort) and other combatants and eventually, the atomic bomb would have been deployed. But in many ways, it was a close-run thing and we owe a great debt to those who put it all on the line, including members of my family.

Today Joe Biden —
Plans to take Vladimir Putin to school in a conference call, dealing with Ukraine. Readers of this blog know that it’s highly unlikely that Putin fears the demented, weak, feckless, and foolish Biden, who was installed by the deep state to his present position. I doubt that Biden will say much in the discussion. Maybe Slow Joe’s handlers will allow him to stay in the room.
The date? Dec 7? I’m sure that it’s lost on American leaders, but not Russians, I expect.
They suspended Laura Logan (who has no agenda) for suggesting that Dr. Anthony (I am Science) Fauci may be a modern-day Dr. Josef Mengele, also known as the Angel of Death (German: Todesengel), who was a German Schutzstaffel (SS) officer and physician during World War II. I’m sure that Mengele would have worked on the gain of function research to create a better bioweapon to unleash on the world if he’d thought long and hard on the subject. And I don’t know that Fauci experimented on Jewish twins. Torturing beagles to death/sad puppies, yes. I’m only musing here, making the connections.
Fauci made a lot more money than Mengele, but they’re both said to have enjoyed their work.
