The Alpha Male

Since the end of WWII over 70 years ago, the United States has protected Eastern Europe from Soviet aggression. Previous presidents have always treated their abuse of our generosity with a wink and a nod. Donald Trump is cut from a different cloth. He upbraided these self-important proles in a manner they had never experienced before. I’m posting some relevant videos in the comment section; be sure to check them out. If you’d like to see how a man with a full set of balls handles his business, you’ll enjoy them.

Trump Blasts NATO Allies in Tense Exchange, Says: “Germany Is Totally Controlled by Russia”

We spend billions to protect Germany from Russia while they buy 70% of their energy from them.

NATO Chief Credits Trump with Increased Member Funding – Trump Points to Media, “They Won’t Report This”

Secretary General Stoltenberg credited Trump for increased spending by alliance members. The president’s response was classic Trump.

Secretary General Stoltenberg: We all agree that we have to do more. But also we’ve seen the biggest increase in defense spending … in a generation.

President Trump: Why was that last year?

Secretary General Stoltenberg: It’s also because of your leadership and your message.

President Trump (pointing to liberal media): They won’t write that but that’s OK.

And, once again, Trump is right.  The media totally ignored it.

Then There Were Five

December 7, 1941: More than 2,300 American servicemen were murdered in a sneak attack by the Empire of Japan. It drew us directly into a war that had been raging in Europe for more than two years. It changed the course of history and ended a madman’s dream of world domination.

Fast forward 76 years. The USS Arizona still rests in the harbor, along with those joined for eternity. I’ve never been there, but know people who have. You cannot come away from there unmoved if you have a soul. Our WWII veterans are almost all gone now, passing into glory at a rapid rate. After suffering eight years of humiliation at the hands of a man who presided over a country he hated, these few once again have a president who sees them as the legends they are.

World War II Veteran Interrupts Trump’s Pearl Harbor Speech to Sing ‘Remember Pearl Harbor’

During his speech, one of the World War II veterans, Michael “Mickey” Ganitch, interrupted and started singing the song “Remember Pearl Harbor.”

Before President Trump signed a formal proclamation on the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, one veteran of the Japanese attack broke out in song. Trump said that, following the attack, a “battle cry could be heard by American friends and foes alike: Remember Pearl Harbor.”

The veteran standing closest to him smiled and began singing the lyrics to the Sammy Kaye song. “Let’s remember Pearl Harbor as we go to meet the foe. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor, as we did the Alamo,” he sang. “We will always remember how they died for liberty. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor, and go on to victory.”

The following veterans attended Trump’s ceremony, where the president signed a proclamation for Pearl Harbor Day:

  • Michael Ganitch, chief quartermaster, United States Navy, USS Pennsylvania
  • Jack Holder, Flight Engineer, United States Navy, PBY Ford Island
  • Alexander Horanzy, Private, United States Army, Schofield Barracks
  • Lawrence Parry, Private, United States Army, Fort Armstrong
  • Robert Fernandez, Seaman First Class, United States Navy, USS Curtiss
  • George Blake, Staff Sergeant, Coastal Artillery Battery

THEY ARE A PRECIOUS TREASURE THAT CAN NEVER BE REPLACED.

Here’s the original version of the song: Remember Pearl Harbor by Sammy Kaye

ON PEARL HARBOR DAY Obama Would Post Photos of Himself — TRUMP Invites WWII Veterans to White House

In December 2013 Barack Obama honored the dead from Pearl Harbor by posting a photo of himself

THIS MAN IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE/

In December 2016, on the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks, Barack Obama honored the fallen heroes of Pearl Harbor with another photo of himself.
On December 7, 2017, President Trump honored the fallen of Pearl Harbor by inviting the survivors to the White House.

EVEN ON SUCH A SOLEMN OCCASION, THAT LITTLE PIMPLE FROM #FAKE NEWS STILL HAS TO BE A PAIN.

Flanked By Pearl Harbor Survivors Trump Stops And Drops A Nuke On CNN

Acosta shouted this question to Trump as he exited the room with the Pearl Harbor veterans: “Any comment on senator Al Franken? He made some comments about you earlier today.”

Trump paused and with the strength of the Pearl Harbor veterans behind him, shut CNN down with five words: “I didn’t hear it. Sorry.: Then Trump left the room, flanked by American heroes.

A Commander to Be Proud Of

Barack Obama never hid his abject contempt for our military. Like the spineless coward that he is, he announced that once he ascended to his throne he would cut and run from Iraq, removing the only safeguard those people had from the savagery that is ISIS. All the blood and treasure that we sacrificed to try to stabilize that country went for nothing as he left billions in military assets which the terrorists used to butcher innocent men, women, and children. He slashed our manpower, cut their budgets, and reduced our defenses to a point we could not sustain a war on two fronts. He knew not a damn thing about military strategy, but ignored what his generals, who knew what they were doing. He was just sooo damn smart. And the media went right along with him. I prayed for our warriors like Chrissy’s daughters and Grunt’s son.
Of all the people who breathed a sigh of relief when Trump was elected, our soldiers were among those most pleased. They knew they finally had a Commander-in-Chief who loved and respected them.

Obama never shied away from slapping our people in the face

THEN ALONG CAME THAT TRUMP GUY
Trump Honors Veterans At Celebrate Freedom Rally

President Donald Trump delivered an Independence Day address honoring American veterans — hundreds of whom came from the Washington, D.C. area to attend the “Celebrate Freedom Rally” at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
“America is a land rich with heroes,” said Trump at the event, which included wounded warriors who are patients at the Walter Reed Medical Center.
During his speech, the president personally saluted World War II veteran Harry Miller for his lifelong service and wounded warrior Luis Avila. Miller enlisted in the reserves at 15, even though he was not old enough to serve. He fought in Europe and in The Battle of the Bulge. Avila, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a fifth deployment when he was wounded, losing his leg, during an intelligence reconnaissance mission.

Here’s a little more about Harry Miller

Here’s a little more about Luis Avila

Hussein Obama used to attend Freedom Rally’s too

 

OVER THE WEEKEND THERE WERE “IMPEACH TRUMP” RALLIES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, WELL PUBLICIZED AND REPORTED ON BY THE MEDIA WHORES. THERE WAS NOT A WORD MENTIONED ABOUT THE FREEDOM RALLY OR THE FACT WE ARE LOSING THE GREATEST GENERATION AT AN ALARMING RATE. SOON THEY WILL ALL BE GONE AND WE WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING LIKE THEM AGAIN. THEY HAD A GOOD SUPPLY OF SOMETHING THIS NATION HAS LITTLE OF… GUTS. THE WILL TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT. PUTTING THEIR COUNTRY ABOVE THEIR OWN SAFETY. ALL BECAUSE THEY CONSIDERED IT THEIR DUTY. WE BLESS AND HONOR THEM AND THE FAMILIES WHO SUFFERED WITH THEM.

The most amazing lie in history: how a chicken farmer, a pair of princesses, and 27 imaginary spies helped the Allies win World War II

The Allies’ top-secret weapon.

Only one man in history was both awarded the Iron Cross for his service to Nazi Germany AND also made a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by King George VI. That man was Juan Pujol Garcia, a draft-dodging chicken farmer and failed businessman from Barcelona who decided during World War II to become a double agent in order to help the Allies defeat Hitler. Here is his amazing story, as recounted by Lucas Reilly in Mental Floss:

In the weeks leading up to D-day, Allied commanders had their best game faces on. “This operation is not being planned with any alternatives,” barked General Dwight D. Eisenhower. “This operation is planned as a victory, and that’s the way it’s going to be!” Indeed, more than 6,000 ships were ready to cruise across the English Channel to plant the first wave of two million troops on the white beaches of Normandy. Nearly 20,000 vehicles would crawl ashore as 13,000 planes dropped thousands of tons of explosives and thousands of paratroopers.

The sheer size of the invasion—it would be the largest in history—was staggering. But so were the stakes. With the first day’s casualty rate expected to reach 90 percent and the outcome of World War II hanging in the balance, the truth was that Eisenhower was riddled with doubt. He’d transformed into an anxious chimney, puffing four packs of cigarettes a day. Other Allied leaders felt equally unsure. “I see the tides running red with their blood,” Winston Churchill lamented. General George S. Patton privately complained of feeling “awfully restless.” Chief of the Imperial General Staff Alan Brooke was more blunt: “It won’t work,” he said. The day before the invasion, Eisenhower quietly penciled a note accepting blame in case he had to order retreat. When he watched the last of the 101st Airborne Division take off, the steely general started to cry.

They were worried for good reason. With so many troops and so much artillery swelling in England, it was impossible to keep the attack a secret. Hitler knew it was coming, and he’d been preparing a defense for months. Only one detail eluded him, and he was confident in a Nazi victory if he could figure it out—he needed to know where, exactly, the attack would happen. To make D-day a success, the Allies needed to keep him in the dark: They’d have to trick the Germans into thinking the real invasion was just a bluff, while making it seem like a major attack was imminent elsewhere. The task seemed impossible, but luckily, the British had a secret weapon: a short, young balding Spaniard. He was the king of con men, an amateur spy gone pro, the world’s sneakiest liar. He was also, of all things, a chicken farmer.

Will They Be Forgotten?

Will D-Day fade into history when the last World War II veteran is gone?

Today is the 73rd anniversary of that June 6, 1944, invasion of France that saw one of the largest forces ever assembled for battle on land, sea and air.

Some 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops attacked German defenders along a 50-mile stretch of heavily defended Normandy coastline.

An estimated 4,000 Allied troops were killed, but by the end of the day the beachheads had been secured in an invasion that was called the beginning of the end of the war in Europe.

The number of living veterans who served in World War II is dwindling; down from 16 million during the war to about 500,000 today (Ohio has more than 26,000). They’re dying at a rate of 372 a day, with an average age now in the 90s.

Given that our so-called “educators” are largely anti-war, anti-capitalist propagandists revisionist history is a large part of their lesson plan. The removal of most statues of Confederate Civil War figures, which have been labeled as ‘racist’ in the South, is a prime example of destroying our history from the inside out.
The men who stormed the Normandy beaches were mostly 18 and 19 year old men. They faced almost certain death without flinching because their sense of duty demanded it. Fast forward to today, where these pampered snowflakes demand “safe spaces” and whine incessantly about anything that upsets them.
How about the Tommies, who fought alongside the Americans, Canadians, and Australians? The land they sacrificed for has been overrun by terrorists who were welcomed in to live off the government, sequester themselves and foment the savagery and barbarism their religion preaches.
We’ve raised a generation of whiners and people who think they deserve special treatment because they’ve been labeled ‘oppressed minorities’ and given special consideration.
One thing I can be grateful for is that I needn’t be a witness to this insanity much longer.

Nuking Japan Saved Lives

Pearl Harbor

The following is by James Delingpole (May 27, 2016):

President Obama has kowtowed to the Japanese and Western liberals by promising at the site of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb “we shall not repeat the evil.”

People who agree with this sentiment ought to do two things.

First they should read the essay – Thank God for the Atom Bomb (link below) – war historian Paul Fussell wrote on how he felt when, as a 21-year-old second lieutenant in the US army, he and his comrades heard the news that Japan had been nuclear bombed into surrender.

“When we learned to our astonishment that we would not be obliged in a few months to rush up the beaches near Tokyo assault-firing while being machine-gunned, mortared, and shelled, for all the practiced phlegm of our tough facades we broke down and cried with relief and joy. We were going to live.”

Second, they should familiarize themselves with which country it was started this particular war; which country fought it with such sadistic determination that they would frequently torture and bayonet prisoners – even the wounded, in hospitals they’d overrun and would almost always refuse to surrender themselves, making any assault on territory they held more than usually costly in allied lives.

If ever the US finds itself in such circumstances again, let us pray that the president it has at the time is nothing like Barack Obama.

AUGUST,1945; 70 YEARS AGO

Germany had surrendered to the Allies in May, but the war in the Pacific raged on. Iwo Jima, Tarawa, Okinawa. The toll for taking those pieces of real estate was appalling. One cannot imagine what Harry S. Truman agonized over when he was given the alternative of using the atomic weapon we now possessed and kill hundreds of thousands in a matter of seconds or risk losing a million or more American lives fighting a fanatical enemy through an invasion of their homeland where self-sacrifice was a part of their culture. He gave the go-ahead. The die was cast. Hiroshima and Nagasaki became synonymous with total nuclear destruction. We have not had to unleash its power since. No country would think of challenging America’s strength. Through the weakness, treachery and sheer incompetence of our current commander-in-chief the future seems shaky.

Happy birthday, Sir Nicholas

It’s the 106th birthday of Sir Nicholas Winton, a British humanitarian who organized the rescue of 669 children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia on the eve of the Second World War, in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport. Winton found homes for the children and arranged for their safe passage to Britain. 

After the war was over, Winton told no one about his humanitarian exploits for many years, and might never have done so had his wife not discovered an old scrapbook of his in their attic in 1988. It contained lists of the children he had saved, along with their parents’ names and the names and addresses of the British families that had taken them in. By sending letters to these addresses, eighty of “Winton’s children” were found in Britain. 

The world found out about Winton’s work during an episode of the BBC television program That’s Life, when Winton was invited to be a member of the audience. The program’s host showed Winton’s scrapbook and explained to the audience what he had done; she then asked whether any members of the audience owed their lives to Winton, and, if so, to stand. More than two dozen people surrounding Winton rose to their feet and applauded.

Memorial to Sir Nicholas Winton at Prague main railway station, installed in 2009.

In 2002 Winton was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in recognition of his work on the Czech Kindertransport, and in 2014 he was awarded the highest honour of the Czech Republic, the Order of the White Lion, by Czech President Miloš Zeman.
