Not a Ken Burns Production.

For those who aren’t familiar with the name Ken Burns, he is a movie producer who puts a far leftist spin on his productions.

The Wreck of the IJN Chokai

Pacific Paratrooper

IJN Chokai, 1942 -by: Paul Wright

Chokai was the last of the four-strong Takao class of heavy cruisers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy in the late 1920s. Imperial Japanese designers worked for several years under the restrictions of the Washington Naval Treaty to make warships that were superior in quality to their American and British opponents, but the tonnage limitations imposed by the treaty made designs that would satisfy the General Staff almost impossible.

In WWII,  Chokai participated in several of the early operations in Southeast Asia, including convoy escort, assisting in the Hunt for Force Z, and the destruction of ABDA forces.

In March 1942, the IJN made a raid into the Indian Ocean with impressive results. The British aircraft carrier HMS Hermes, the heavy cruisers Cornwall and Dorsetshire, and the destroyers Tenedos and Vampire were all sunk. Additionally, several ports were raided on the…

These are slaves today. Not 150 years ago.Muslims in Libya selling these black slaves less than 3 blocks from the United Nations building.

Where are the Left-wing Do Gooders?

Hollywood?

Where is “a smidgeon’ of media outrage?

They are all Godless communists.

They don’t give a damn.

Defund Hollywood

The O.K. Corral

Believe me, I am painfully aware you are sick and tired of reading defund the police stories, but this report is more infuriating than most.

Hollywood hates you. I mean, they hate me much more, but despite all the cutesy talk show interviews and their “heartfelt” commercials for charity, these people care only about themselves. They certainly couldn’t give a rat’s ass about your safety.

More than a dozen of the world’s most famous celebrities are financing left-wing organizations that openly seek the defunding of America’s police departments, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found.

Actors, models and singers have donated large sums to left-wing organizations including Color of Change, Black Lives Matter Global Network and the Movement for Black Lives, all of which are open about their desire to defund police departments across the country.

To be brutally honest, I’m going to stop caring about this the second I…

Please Pay very close attention to Maria as she interviews U.S. Senator Ron John from WI.

When ODNI James Clapper walked into the oval office on January 4, 2017, with “tech cuts” (transcript excerpts) from the Flynn/Kislyak phone call, essentially Clapper infected the White House with a paper record that the Obama administration was aware of the FBI investigating the incoming administration. 

As in what did he know and when did he know it?

For those who have small businesses and reject the PPP, Payment Protection Program, send their checks to me.

I’ll get the economy going so quickly people won’t even remember Joe Biden and that includes members of his family.

None of the individuals can be considered credible as they are all, on the record perjurers.

Why is it important to understand the duality of purpose for the appointment of…

Sports in the WWII Military

Pacific Paratrooper

1926 Army/Navy game ticket, Nimitz Museum

The relationship between sports and the American armed forces reached a climax during WWII The military broadened its athletic regimen, established during  WWI, and thereby reproduced a patriotic sporting culture that soldiers had known as civilians. The armed services provided equipment, training, and personnel rather than rely on private agencies, as had been done in WWI.  The entry of numerous prominent athletes into military service represented a public relations boon for the Department of War and cemented a bond between professional sports, athletes, and patriotism.

American football was glorified as everything masculine and befitting the U.S. military experience. As organized sports became even more closely linked with fitness, morale, and patriotism, both within the ranks and on the home front, football became a fixture on military bases at home and abroad. Football was the favored sport among the military brass, as Generals George Marshall, Dwight Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur…
