Pearl Harbor remembered...

Written by The Patriots Press on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  To those remaining and aging survivors, what happened 73 years ago today might seem like yesterday.  On that day, 2335 military personnel and 68 civilians were killed, with many hundreds more wounded during an unprovoked attack by the Imperial Japanese Navy which was the catalyst that forced us into the already ongoing WWII.  The men and women of that Greatest Generation can never be thanked sufficiently or enough for their sacrifices.

That war was prosecuted and we prevailed, and there have been many battlegrounds since then.  We have fought in Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, and many other places including our homeland.

Where we once had a resolve to vanquish our enemies and protect our way of life, the trend of the last several decades is to placate them in the mode of Neville Chamberlain.  We do this to the point that while most Americans support our troops and veterans, our government has systematically weakened our military and what it stands for.

One case in point.  On this day that we honor and remember that tragic day of 73 years ago, it comes to light that the memorial in Pearl Harbor is apparently being maintained as marginally as our troops and veterans.

Fox News:  PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii –  The USS Arizona is one of the nation's most hallowed sites, an underwater grave for more than 900 sailors and Marines killed when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and sank their ship in 1941.

Now, it's the scene of alleged rampant mismanagement.

An internal report from the National Park Service, which operates a visitors' center for a memorial at the battleship, said tour companies sold tickets with the knowledge of park officials even though tickets are supposed to be free.

Another pointed to substandard maintenance, including scuffed museum walls that languished unrepaired and bird feces that wasn't cleaned.

The revelations in documents released last month come just before crowds gather at Pearl Harbor on Sunday for an annual ceremony remembering more than 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers killed 73 years ago.

"To watch the desecration of a very sacred, very important place was very disheartening," said John Landrysmith, a former park service guide and 41-year-old Iraq war veteran.

Disney offended by God? Why Indeed...?!

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  While I don’t know if this was intentional or not, even though I believe it has to be.  After all, websites are set up with whatever parameters the owner chooses and approves.  

Regardless, it is very consistent with Disney’s increasing trend towards becoming less than traditional and family friendly over the last twenty years or so.  It has certainly kept me away from the gates of the ‘Magic Kingdom.’

As an observer of world events, I recognize the thought process that goes into any company’s decision to appease specific groups, because business is business.  However, I will never understand why any company would chance alienating a much larger group during said appeasement in the name of political correctness.

Fox News:  It turns out you can give thanks for a lot of different folks on the Disney Channel website – but you can’t thank God.

I received a Facebook message on Sunday from Julie Anderson, of Angier, North Carolina, a town located about 30 miles from Raleigh.  Julie was writing to tell me about her daughter, Lilly.

Lilly celebrated her 10th birthday on Sunday. After church and a delicious lunch at the Golden Corral, the Andersons headed home – and Lilly made a beeline for the computer.

I do wonder what sort of message the Disney Channel is sending when they tell children that mentioning God in public is bad manners.

Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson resigns

Written by Fox News on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  In the end, resigning was the right thing for Darren Wilson to do.  Not because his actions were wrong, but because things can never be ‘normal’ in Ferguson, MO again…certainly not on the Police Department while he remains.  His friends, family, and co-workers wouldn’t be safe, and the department could never be effective.

There is no telling what the future holds for Mr. Wilson, however there is no doubt that his life will continue to be put under a micro-scope for the foreseeable future, and he will have to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life.  

He may be resigning, but if I were him, I’d keep wearing the bullet proof vest and the gun.  

Fox News:  Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown, has resigned from the Ferguson Police Department nearly four months after the confrontation that fueled protests in the St. Louis suburb and across the nation.

Wilson, 28, had been on administrative leave since the shooting on Aug. 9. His resignation was announced Saturday by one of his attorneys, Neil Bruntrager. The resignation was effective immediately, Bruntrager said.

"I have been told that my continued employment may put the residents and police officers of the City of Ferguson at risk, which is a circumstance that I cannot allow,” Wilson said in a resignation letter seen by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal,” the letter read.

One way race cards...

Written by Akron Beacon Journal on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  While the nation and the world watch in horror as the City of Ferguson, MO erupts in more and more looting, rioting, and other very bad behavior in the wake of a GJ decision in the death of Michael Brown, another similar case has played out in Akron, Ohio.

Few will hear about it though, because in this case, a white cop who was doing his job was killed by a black thug.  

This is the state of America and race baiting.  If Michael Brown had gotten the upper hand and perhaps killed Officer Wilson in Ferguson, we wouldn’t know about that case either.  God help us.

Akron Beacon Journal:  On Monday night, Ferguson erupted.  On Tuesday afternoon, about 200 Kent State students marched across campus to protest the Ferguson decision. Some chanted, “Don’t shoot” and, “No justice, no peace.”  In Cleveland on Tuesday evening, thousands shut down the city at rush hour, clogging streets and spilling onto expressways. Their rallies followed a police shooting of a 12-year-old boy who waved a toy gun at an officer.

In Akron, there was nothing. Or was there?

The events of Ferguson, Mo., stirred again the national conscience regarding one of its most difficult subjects: race.  Or is the issue really race? Is it justice?

As Tuesday morning unfolded and Americans digested the events of the night before, Beacon Journal reporters and editors gathered to talk about what people in our community may think, what they know and what they don’t know.  Out of that discussion came this...

Smiling youth rapes 101 year old woman in Chicago

Written by ABC on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  This is human garbage, on a par with those who would terrorize our nation and culture while chanting "allahu ackbar."  How come this isn't and hasn't been a top story since it happened on Labor Day?!  

Where the hell are al sharpton, eric holder, potus, and all the other race baiters?  How come they don't see fit to shout about this?!  How come We the People sit idle while this goes practically unnoticed?

By the Grace of God, even this despicable vermin could find forgiveness and salvation through Jesus, however, if he's found guilty, we as a society cannot and should not house him for "up to" fifty-eight years.  This sub-human cockroach needs to be put down like the animal he is as soon after a conviction as possible and let God decide his Eternal fate.

ABC News:  MILWAUKEE - Antoine Pettis, 20, is charged with sexually assaulting a woman who will soon be 102.

The Milwaukee man is accused of raping a 101-year-old woman in her home September 1. According to court records, Pettis broke into the woman's home near 36th and Florist on early on September 1.
