This Week in History

The first week of June, has three of the most important events in our nation's history.

June 4th, 1942 - The Battle of Midway begins.

An outgunned American Carrier group, which was commended by the second string (Adm. Spruance) because the first string hospitalized. Defeated a Japanese Task force.
First, the challenge of finding the enemy.
Second, overcoming incomplete reports of the enemy.
Third, fighting on even when the battle plan falls apart. Torpedo 8 attacking the Japanese carriers without fighter protection and without the dive bombers. Torpedo 8 lost all of its aircraft, had only one pilot survive, and inflected no damage, but its heroic attack did bring the Japanese fighters down to sea level and make it easier for the next wave of Americans to attack.
Fourth, sinking three Japanese Carriers and severely damaging a fourth in a 10 minute dive bomber attack -
VICTORY for the U.S. - - -Japan is now on the defensive.

June 5th, 1968 - Robert F. Kennedy killed.

A sad day for American politics, to have a candidate killed.
Sirhan Sirhan - a Palestinian, shot RFK at close range just after RFK took the lead in the race for the Democratic nomination.

June 6th, 1944 - D-Day

The invasion of Europe, the largest invasion in history. (The planned invasion of Japan in 1945 would have been much larger and done over far greater distance.)
Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah, and Omaha - the 5 beaches.
Omaha was the worst, the troops had to travel farther in the assault boats, they suffered the highest rate of death, 'Bloody Omaha' was pure hell on 6/6/44. But the Allies, didn't quit, didn't turn back, the troops pressed onward and secured a bloody VICTORY for democracy.

On the other side of the world, The US Marines invaded Saipan on 6/6/44. An island battle that was as bloody as the invasion of Europe.

Three events which have profoundly shaped America and the world.

Barack Hussein Obama

B.O. is the Democrat nominee for President of the United States.

But it isn't over till the fat lady (in the pantsuit) sings, Hillary has not done that yet.

Will B. O.'s many connections to the Nation of Islam - cause the super-delegates of the Democratic Party to switch their vote to Hillary? Or will the threat of rioting prevent that?

Will B. O. survive till Election Day, I mean literally survive till then?
If he takes Hillary as his Veep, his chances of survival go down.

I say - SAY NO TO B.O.

DUMB DEMOCRATS - Yes, I repeat Myself

Democrats -
They make rules,
They break the rules,
They change the rules.
To Democrats, rules are there to limit the other guy.
To Democrats, the only thing that matters is having power.

Democrats make backroom deals at an 'open' meeting.
Democrats support the idea of a person being 3/5ths of a person, I mean 1/2 of a person.

Republicans made their rules, set the punishment for those who broke the rules, and will carry thru on the punishment.

Democrats made their rules, set the punishment for those who broke the rules, and then changed the rules after the fact. Just like the Democrats who wanted to change the election rules after the election in 2000, because they didn't win (they would have lost using their new rules in 2000 as well.)

But for me, I need more popcorn, because this 'deathmatch for the Democrat nomination is going all the way to Denver and beyond.

Obama: Politician not a Christian

Senator Obama has run away from the Trinity United Church of Christ.

Obama did not renounce its spiritual guidance, he has quit the church for purely political reasons. Obama still believes that a good Christian should preach "G-D Damn America" .

Senator Obama is now free to return to his original religion - Islam.
(As a child Barack Hussein Obama was raised a Moslem. As an adult, he chose a 'Black Church' which has close ties to the Nation of Islam and Trinity United has openly supported Hamas.)

Or maybe Obama will renounce G-d and publicly embrace Communism, with its total control over the lives of its citizens.

BUT now the most important thing to Obama is surviving (literally) the never ending challenge from Hillary Clinton.
