They do not care about History…unless it suits them. Witness the following photo at the close of the Demo☭rat National Convention in Charlotte, wherein an effort to sucker The American People into believing they care about our military, backfires in a most egregious fashion:
The background — featured in the carefully choreographed hour leading up to the president’s Sept. 6 speech accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination — showed four ships with radar designs not used in the U.S. fleet.
For example, the ship in the foreground, on the far right, has a square radar antenna at the top of its masthead. That is the MR-700 Podberezovik 3-D early warning radar, commonly identified as “Flat Screen” for its appearance, a three-dimensional early warning radar mounted on the Kerch, said Eric Wertheim, editor of “Combat Fleets of the World.”
Similarly, the third ship has a MR-310 “Head Net” air search radar, shaped like two off-set bananas, at its masthead and is mostly likely the guided missile destroyer Smetlivyy. The first two ships seem to be Krivak-class frigates, but it’s hard to discern from the silhouette, experts said.
But the fact they are Russian ships is not in doubt. In addition to the ship’s radar arrays and hulls, which are dissimilar from U.S. warships, the photo features one more give-away: a large white flag with a blue ‘X’ at the ships’ sterns.
Polmar, who authored “The Naval Institute Guide to the Soviet Navy,” recognized the blue ‘X’-mark: “The X is the Cross of St. Andrew’s, which is a Russian Navy symbol,” Polmar said. (An anchored U.S. warship, by contrast, flies the American flag on its stern.)
Based on this specific group of these ship types, one naval expert concluded that this was most likely a photo of the Black Sea Fleet.
These people don’t possess the intestinal fortitude to show the REAL a**-kicking ships of the United States Navy. Yet another reason to reject the Demo☭rat Party come November 6.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Neil Armstrong was a quiet self-described nerdy engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step on to the moon. The modest man who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter million miles away has died. He was 82.
Armstrong died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, a statement Saturday from his family said. It didn’t say where he died.
Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s scientific expeditions. His first words after setting foot on the surface are etched in history books and the memories of those who heard them in a live broadcast.
“That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind,” Armstrong said.
In those first few moments on the moon, during the climax of heated space race with the then-Soviet Union, Armstrong stopped in what he called “a tender moment” and left a patch commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in action.
Dang. I so vividly remember watching the Apollo 11 Landing on Italian TV, on a black & white set. Unbelievable! It’s sad that he had to witness what أوباما did to NASA with his “Mohammedan Outreach” program, stripping the United States of her spaceflight capability for some time, with the retirement of the shuttle fleet.
May God comfort and strengthen his family.
As part of the Bicentennial Commemoration of the War of 1812, the USS Constitution was taken out on a short ten-minute cruise outside Boston Harbor to mark the 200th anniversary of her victory versus HMS Guerriere.
Notice how I referred to the Constitution: as a she and not an it, unlike the author of this article from the Associated (with Terrorists) Press:
The USS Constitution, which was first launched in 1797, will be tugged from its berth in Boston Harbor on Sunday to the main deepwater pathway into the harbor. It will then set out to open seas for a 10-minute cruise.
The short trip marks the day two centuries ago when the Constitution bested the British frigate HMS Guerriere in a fierce battle during the War of 1812. It follows a three-year restoration project and is the first time the Constitution has been to sea on its own since its 200th birthday in 1997.
Before that, it hadn’t sailed under its own power since 1881. The Constitution is periodically tugged into the harbor for historical display.
Being the Navy Brat I am, I cringe every single time anyone in this country refers to a ship without a gender. Granted, that’s what the Germans do. But we are not Germans! The Fifth Column Treasonous Media™ being who they are, want to strip us of our history and traditions, and this AP writer works his unholy magick to do so.
May God always Bless the USS Constitution!
One of my friends on FB recommended this page with a whole bunch of Soviet-era propaganda posters touting the successes of Socialism. The one I’ve included here (click on the image) looks quite menacing, indeed. I guess since the Russians (and by extension, the Chinese) are the only games in town to get men and women into space, I’ll bet Никита Сергеевич is rolling over in his grave…
...that is, of course, when he’s not exacting Hell on Marilyn Monroe!
Something that will piss off the Mexican Illegals who whine and howl and rage and seethe over: The signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which officially ended the Mexican-American War...a war which, I will point out, was started by Democrats. The Republican Party wasn’t in existence yet.
No matter. This treaty was LAWFULLY negotiated by the United States (the victor) and Mexico, resulting in the Mexican Cession, and we credited $15 MILLION toward Mexico’s debt:
The Southern factions wanted MORE than what we negotiated; the desire for a transcontinental railroad to connect to a southern port ultimately led to the Gadsden Purchase five years later, and another $10 MILLION payment.
So, it’s ours, lock, stock, and barrel. Let the Mexican Illegals continue to whine and howl and rage and seethe.
Not just nationally or internationally, but personal too.
I’ve essentially been out of work since February. Over the last couple of months I’ve gotten more inquiries which resulted in interviews, but each and every time, I’ve been overqualified. These prospective employers obviously want frakkin’ IDIOTS who can spew forth what was indoctrinated into them. That’s why I’ve been so damn frustrated lately.
It is my sincere hope that the following occur in 2012:
1) I get a job, one which will let me truly utilize my skills set. 2) That Son of A Bitch Обама gets his a** voted OUT, Big Time. 3) BofA becomes Not Too Big To Fail.
Is that so much to ask?
To all my friends around the world…HAPPY NEW YEAR!
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” 22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,”[d] which is translated, “God with us.” 24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS.
Merry Christmas to all of you, all of you on the good Earth!
On this, the 70th Anniversary of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor, I want to share with you all an amazing discovery I made just a few days ago. See this man over to the right?
That is Captain Mitsuo Fuchida of the Imperial Japanese Navy. He was the man who led the first wave of the attack, and was also responsible for planning the entire thing with his commanding officer, Vice Admiral Chūichi Nagumo. The attack was, to the Japanese, a huge success, even though they did not take out our Carriers.
But God had another Plan for him.
Fuchida also led the attack on Darwin, Australia on February 19, 1942, and again against the British Naval Forces in the Indian Ocean and Ceylon in March of the same year. Then, just prior to the Battle of Midway, he was unable to participate in the attack, due to an emergency appendectomy. He was wounded on the bridge of the flagship Akagi.
But God had another Plan for him.
He was in Hiroshima the day before the Bomb, when he was called back to Tokyo. He was spared. He then returned to assess the destruction of the city; his aides later died from Radiation Poisoning. But he was not affected.
But God had another Plan for him.
After the war, after he testified at the War Crimes Tribunals, and also discovered from returning Japanese POWs that they were not tortured or abused, and this fact clashed with his Bushido upbringing. He couldn’t figure out why, until…
In the fall of 1948, Fuchida was passing by the bronze statue of Hachiko at the Shibuya Station when he was handed a pamphlet about the life of Jacob DeShazer, a member of the Doolittle Raid who was captured by the Japanese after his B-25 Mitchell ran out of fuel over occupied China. In the pamphlet “I Was a Prisoner of Japan.” DeShazer, himself a former U.S. Army Air Force Staff Sergeant and bombardier, told his story of imprisonment, torture and his account of an “awakening to God”. This experience increased Fuchida’s curiosity of the Christian faith. In September of 1949, after reading the Bible for himself, he became a Christian and in May of 1950 he and Jake DeShazer met for the first time.
He had found God’s Plan. He shared his new-found Christian faith with his fellow Japanese, and with others who accepted Christ, for the rest of his life. And according to the Wiki listing, Mitsuo Fuchida became a Citizen of the United States…the country he had attacked!...in 1966. He died ten years later, back in Japan.
Amazing, isn’t it? Even in Remembrance, there is Forgiveness too. God does have a Plan for all of us.
One of the most famous ancient writings in all of History (and to Hell with what the Mohammedans say!) are the Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in 1947 in Khirbet Qumran, part of the West Bank, is now available online. It is an amazing look into our Judeo-Christian heritage. This is something which those who worship Mo and…by extension…SATAN!...can never understand.
Go Ye and check these Dead Sea Scrolls out. The Macker Commands It!
UPDATE (07/28/2011; 0711 MST): In case you wondering, here’s the iPad screenshot:
September 11, 2001. EVIL attacked us that day.
I was at work for about a half-hour when word of the attack came down by way of word of mouth. The net was frozen, and no one was able to access it and no one could get any work done for the entire day. Most of us were just sitting around trying to make sense of it all. After noon our bosses just told everyone to go home, and so I did. When I got home I turned it onto CBS and watched Dan Rather warning everyone about the graphic footage and language. Yes, I heard the lady screaming “Jesus F***ing Christ!” and it was NOT censored. The first and only words out of my mouth were YOU SONS OF BITCHES! After that I didn’t say much for the next couple of days or so, I was as stunned as everyone else.
Here are two photos from Ground Zero which I took just over one year later, during a quick visit to New York City. One is The Sphere which survived; the other is The Pit. These are terrible scars on the land and on our hearts. Though one scar is filled now with a Memorial, we must always remember what happened and who did this to us. To Hell with political correctness! To Hell with Islam!
It was fifty years ago today that the East Germans put up The Berlin Wall, which they said was erected to protect its “citizens” from the anti-socialist elements of the West, when we all knew damn well it was built to keep them in.
Here’s The Sex Pistols from their classic 1977 LP “Never Mind The Bollocks,” with Holidays In The Sun:
