Since the FBI had this damning intelligence and sat on it doing nothing for two years does anyone seriously believe they will give it an honest investigation now?

Don’t hold your breath.

According to journalist and Trump insider John Solomon, the documents would be released as soon as Friday, but no later than Monday.

“He has delivered in a big way. More than a foot-high stack of documents he has authorized to be released by the FBI and the DOJ.

Breaking below:

These are the things that the FBI has tried to keep from the public for 4 years. They have amazing, big picture revelations,” Solomon told Fox News’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”

Rand Paul: We’re Becoming ‘Militarized Zone’ in D.C., Have to ‘Resist’ Rapid Loss of Civil Liberties in a Crisis

Jim Campbell's

Comment by Jim Campbell

Few honest American voters believe the DNC and their operatives didn’t steal the election.

Washington is such a crooked place with Democrats in charge at least for the next two years, we will not know the truth.

In two years each member of the House of Representatives must defend their positions or be gone.

The Republicans would do well to start developing a cadre of young patriots capable of running against and beating those Democrats in the House who have been around far too long.

First on the list would be Nancy Pelosi.

Guam

Pacific Paratrooper

Guam

In a lot of Pacific War histories, Guam is swept aside and banished as insignificant.  How soon they forget, many might say.

In Tokyo, soundtrucks festooned with World War II colors still extol those lost in a gallant defeat. In America, elders like Louis H. Wilson Jr. and George Tweed would never forget.

Masashi Ito and Bunzo Minagawa spent young manhood into middle age in the tropical underside of an island that tourists now praise as a paradise. They were holdouts, soldiers who refused to surrender and would forage for
survival for 16 years.

Soichi Yokoi, before and after

The last known Japanese survivor, Shoichi Yokoi, held out until 1972, captured by chance as he ventured out to empty a fish trap. Yokoi had never crept out of dense cover to hear the happy shouts of Japanese tourists and honeymooners. Nor had he walked the lobby of the Hilton…

New Iranian Bill Vows Israel’s Destruction Within 20 Years

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Israel will be around long after Iran has been placed on the trash heap of history.

The Iranian parliament is debating a bill that pledges to destroy Israel within 20 years.

The bill, which was introduced to the Iranian parliament on Dec. 30, includes the stated goal of destroying Israel by 2041. The “aggressor Zionist regime” poses a threat to Iran, according to the bill, which would require the Islamic Republic to violate Israel’s blockade of Gaza. The legislation would put additional pressure on Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s government to ramp up its military operations against Israel and the United States and is backed by some of Tehran’s most hardline politicians. It also calls for a “decisive act of revenge” against the United States military in response to the airstrike that killed Iranian general and terrorist Qassem Soleimani last year.

The bill would also push Iran to seek help from countries in the so-called axis of resistance to counter American interests. The Iranian politicians list Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and groups in the Gaza Strip as potential partners for closer financial ties. Another group targeted by the bill is Yemen’s Houthi militia, which the State Department declared a terror group on Sunday. The bill would also direct Iran to re-up trade relations with some of Washington’s chief competitors, such as China, Russia, and Venezuela. In recent months, all three U.S. rivals have inched closer to Tehran through economic and security-based agreements.

An analysis of the legislation from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a national security think tank, expects the bill to pass in the coming weeks.

“The new bill is a good example of Iran’s continued terrorist, anti-American, and anti-Israeli intentions,” the report said. “The regime needs to be held accountable for the bill’s contents if it becomes law.”

The bill comes to public attention as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered remarks Tuesday condemning Iran for its role as al Qaeda’s new “home base,” as Pompeo confirmed that the terrorist organization’s second-in-command was killed on the streets of Tehran last summer.

If you believe that, file it with the number of towel heads and rug riders you have seen while yachting.

Or that 9-11-01 a day that will certainly live in infamy was caused by “Nuns with Guns”, and three players to be decided later. [That’s sports jargon for those who don’t follow professional sports.]

This hateful skank has spent the last 4 year in Congress as Speaker on the taxpayers dime.

She belongs in prison.

Ordnance – L-4 Grasshopper in the Pacific

Pacific Paratrooper

The “L’series liaison aircraft in US army service were often known as “grasshoppers.” These aircraft served with artillery and outfits spotting targets and giving commanders real time information on enemy positions. They also served in Liaison Squadrons, such as the 25th Liaison Squadron which earned fame in the Pacific Theater with their “Guinea Short Lines” aircraft.

L-4 Grasshopper, Piper Cub

Primarily to serve at elimination training bases in World War II the Navy acquired 230 Piper NE-1s , basically similar to the Army L-4s with Continental 0-170 engines. Twenty NE-2s were similar.

deHavilland WWI

As war spread around the world at the beginning of the 1940s, the U.S. military, dominated by old soldiers who expected to fight the next war exactly as they fought the last one, had to be convinced that the requirements for certain weapons needed to be redefined. An example was the Army’s observation airplanes, latter-day versions…

The howitzer was designed to fire the same ammunition as the longer M2. However, it turned out that shorter barrel resulted in incomplete burning of the propelling charge. The problem could be solved by use of faster burning powder. Otherwise the design was considered acceptable and was standardized as105mm Howitzer M3 on Carriage M3. The carriage was soon succeeded by…

NSSF Commends Rep Duncan’s Introduction of the Hearing Protection Act

H/T AmmoLand.

While this is a commendable piece of legislation I do not see it passing this CommiecRat controlled Congress.



U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)-  The NSSF, the firearm industry’s trade association, commends U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan’s (R-S.C.) introduction of the Hearing Protection Act, H.R. 95. The legislation was introduced with 36 original co-sponsors. The bill would remove firearm suppressors from the list of definitions under the 1934 National Firearms Act (NFA), eliminating onerous and duplicitous background checks. Instead, what is essentially a muffler for a gun would be regulated under the 1968 Gun Control Act (GCA) with the same background check that is required for a retail firearm purchase.

Firearm suppressors are legal to own and possess in 42 states and 40 states allow them for hunting.

 

“This legislation removes barriers to owning an accessory that makes recreational shooting and hunting safer, more accurate and allows shooting ranges to be better neighbors,” said Lawrence Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President, and General Counsel. “Firearm suppressors are a safety device designed to make recreational shooting safer. They were originally listed under the NFA over concerns of poaching during the Great Depression, but that never bore out. Even today, suppressors are exceedingly rarely used in crime. NSSF thanks Congressman Duncan for his leadership to remove barriers to safe recreational shooting.”

Firearm suppressors legally but inaccurately referred to as “silencers,” are devices that reduce the report of a firearm from a level roughly equal to that of a jet taking off which causes instant and permanent hearing loss to one that is safe, but still equal to a jackhammer. That decibel level will not permanently damage hearing. Suppressors work similar to a car’s muffler, redirecting exhaust gases, and was originally patented more than 100 years ago by the same designer of car mufflers, Hiram Maxim.

The Marine Corps recently announced the fielding of 30,000 suppressors after extensive field testing demonstrated their use significantly reduced noise and permanent hearing loss among Marines. Many countries in Europe that have stringent gun control laws require the use of a suppressor when hunting or recreationally shooting. They are widely available and can often be purchased in a hardware store without the need for a background check.

Under current law, an individual purchasing a suppressor must locate a retailer that is regulated as an NFA Class III dealer, complete a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Form 4 with the model and a serial number of the suppressor, and obtain two passport photos and fingerprint cards from a local police department. The local chief law enforcement official must receive a completed copy of the application. Then the form, photographs, and fingerprints must be sent to ATF along with a check to pay the $200 tax. Currently, it takes ATF about nine months to process the paperwork. Then, the customer can obtain the suppressor from the NFA Class III dealer upon an additional background check through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Congressman Duncan’s legislation would eliminate those requirements and make suppressors available with the same paperwork, markings, record-keeping, and background check approval that is required for a firearm.

President Donald Trump defended his supporters who stormed Capitol Hill Wednesday, arguing that it was a consequence of his election being stolen.

“These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously and viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly and unfairly treated for so long,” Trump said.

The president commented shortly after authorities confirmed that a woman who was shot at the Capitol on Wednesday had died. Details surrounding the shooting remain unclear.

Honoring Merrill’s Marauders

Pacific Paratrooper

There is a passing member of Merrill’s Marauders in the Farewell Salutes today.   This post is an attempt to honor their contributions.

James E. Richardson

“If they can walk and carry a gun,” Major General Joseph Stillwell presciently told Brigadier General Frank Merrill in 1943, “they can fight!”

After being run out of the Burmese jungle by the Japanese in May of 1942, Stillwell had, according to one war correspondent, appeared “like the wrath of God and cursing like a fallen angel.”

The general didn’t mince his words either, telling reporters that the joint expedition between a small contingent of American, British, and Chinese troops “got a hell of a beating. We got run out of Burma and it is humiliating as hell. I think we ought to find out what caused it, go back, and retake it.”

The following year a determined Stillwell took a major step…
