    The Democrats always pick their best and brightest to head the DNC. DNC chair candidate, Keith Ellison appeared on the O’Reilly Factor a few years ago and when Bill O’Reilly brought up Nazi Germany, Keith Ellison said they bombed Pearl Harbor. You just can’t make this stuff up! Bill O’Reilly: “I will point to history…the same mindset was taken when dealing with Nazi Germany. We’re not going to go in an aggressive action, we don’t believe they’re gong to do this, we don’t believe they’re gonna do that…and they absolutely did everything! So I think you gotta look at history.”...

    CNN ^ | Wed December 7, 2016 | Daniel Greene
    Seventy-five years ago today, hundreds of Japanese bombers attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. America's shock, and its grief for the more than 2,000 US military dead on this date of "infamy" led to overwhelming unity of purpose as we entered a world war. Yet America's unity was matched by its profound fears about national security in the days after Pearl Harbor. Well before December 7, 1941, Americans believed that enemy spies and saboteurs lived among us. Some did, though not nearly as many as we imagined. In 1940, the FBI reportedly received 3,000 complaints or tips every...

    Seventy-five years ago, on December 7, 1941, the American Navy suffered the worst defeat in its history when a force led by six Japanese fleet carriers launched a surprise attack at the battleships at Pearl Harbor. Two of the eight battleships, Arizona and Oklahoma, were destroyed, and the other six were knocked out of action for many months. The Army Air Corps fields were attacked with great loss, and other smaller naval vessels were attacked as well. The American carriers were at sea. Had those carriers been at Pearl Harbor, the whole course of the Pacific War would have been...

Those who were trapped underwater banged continuously on the side of the ship so that anyone would hear them and come to their rescue. When the noises were first heard many thought it was just loose wreckage or part of the clean-up operation for the destroyed harbour. However the day after the attack, crewmen realised that there was an eerie banging noise coming from the foward hull of the USS West...

It was announced Monday that Abe will be the first Japanese leader to visit Pearl Harbor since it was hit by a surprise attack that killed 2,403 Americans and brought the U.S. into World War II. The visit reciprocates President Barack Obamas visit to Hiroshima earlier this year for the anniversary of the atomic bomb attack...

The war that ended in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he said, grew out of the same base instinct for domination or conquest that had caused conflicts among the simplest tribes, an old pattern amplified by new capabilities and without new constraints. The speech delivered on the eve of Memorial Day weekend was billed by the White House as anything but an apology, but Obamas words betrayed...

That event, and the dropping of a second atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki on August 9, brought a victorious and rapid end to World War II, and a Japanese surrender 6 days after Nagasaki, saving potentially millions of casualties on both sides if the U.S. had been forced to invade the Japanese home islands.

There can be no better lesson in the importance of anticipating the villainy of our enemies rather than reacting to it. “Remember Pearl Harbor. Keep America alert.” For a generation of Americans, they were words by which they, and their children, lived....

    So, it's Pearl Harbor Day. You know what that is, right? It's when we commemorate how Americans forced non-white American people into camps, after irrational mass paranoia that drove white people into hysterical rage against people who didn't look like us.

Their early-morning air attack destroyed many naval vessels and an airfield, killed nearly 2,400 U.S. servicemen, and woke Americans up to a whole...

  • A Day of Infamy

    Early in the afternoon of December 7, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his chief foreign policy aide, Harry Hopkins, were interrupted by a telephone call from Secretary of War Henry Stimson and told that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor. At about 5:00 p.m., following meetings with his military advisers, the President calmly and decisively dictated to his secretary, Grace Tully, a request to Congress for a declaration of war. He had composed the speech in his head after deciding on a brief, uncomplicated appeal to the people of the United States rather than a thorough recitation of Japanese...
