On Pearl Harbor Anniversary, Just 3 Survivors of USS Arizona Remain

Today we take a look at the last three survivors of the USS Arizona, which was sunk on Dec. 7, 1941.

In September, Lauren Bruner, the next-to-last sailor to escape the sinking USS Arizona on Dec. 7, 1941, died in Los Angeles at age 98. His death leaves just three of the 337 men who survived the attack on the battleship.

Bruner was 21 when the attack occurred. He took a machine gun bullet to the leg and was badly burned.

Dem Rep Accuses Congress of Sending 'Subliminal Message' by Calling All-White Panel of Witnesses

It’s kind of ironic. For years now, Texas Democrat Rep. Al Green has been trying to impeach President Donald Trump. Now it seems to be finally happening. Not for the strange reasons Green put forth, mind you — no talk about Trump’s tweets or his firing of FBI Director James Comey. Instead, there’s something resembling a real reason for it.

NETANYAHU’S PERSONAL LAWYER TO BE CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING

SOURCE: INDEPENDENT UK
Israel’s state prosecutor has plans to indict prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cousin and personal lawyer, alongside six other people, on charges related to a possible conflict of interest over a $2bn purchase of German submarines.

Shai Nitzan said in a statement on Thursday the seven would be charged on various corruption offences, including money laundering, bribery and fraud – pending a hearing.

Among them is Mr Netanyahu’s attorney, David Shimron, who represented the German firm involved and was suspected of using his influence over the prime minister in return for a hefty cut of the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color an already geopolitically wounded and dangerous Prime Minister, even more so, with these accusations levelled against his attorney.

And please remember; just last Wednesday, Secretary of State Pompeo and Netanyahu met, to push forward with a new US/Israeli Defense pact, Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense Pact; Netanyahu argues he should stay in power because of deal

The article goes on to state: "Netanyahu looks to be steering heavily into this US lifeline, arguing that the deal proves he needs to stay in power, and that in the event of a rotation government with Gantz, he’d have to be first because of his “unique” ties with the US.

Details of the pact aren’t clear, beyond it committing the US to war to defend Israel. Those familiar with it have said the pact would in no way restrict Israel’s ability to unilaterally attack targets across the region, meaning constant Israeli attacks on targets in Syria and Iraq could continue."

Congress' last day in session this year is (ironically enough) this coming Friday, 13 December; I am very concerned, because of the enormous geopolitical strain Netanyahu is experiencing, both with being unable to create a government at home, coupled with his legal woes, will push him to push every AIPAC member in Congress to support this bill, either as a fast-track bit of legislation, or as a rider to a "must pass" piece of legislation, which has to have Congress' approval by the 13th.

There is a legal precedent for this in the Patriot Act, which was the rider, inserted into the bill at the last minute, which held pharmaceutical companies and indemnified them against any harm their products could cause.

The following article sheds a bit of light as to the nature of this rider, and why it managed to get written into the Homeland Security Act: The Homeland Security Act and the Mystery of the Eli Lilly Rider

But if a rider with the potential capability to create harm nationally, by allowing the continuing use of Thimerosal in vaccines, was allowed to be placed into a National Piece of legislation, just imagine how horrific a rider "committing the US to war to defend Israel" could be to our country.
'
I am going to be watching this like a hawk, this next week, hoping and praying that this neither gets through Congress, nor that President Trump empowers this pact through an executive order.

Pearl Harbor Revisited: Dispelling Surprise Attack Mythology

“I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.”

Around one hour after Roosevelt’s December 8 address before a joint congressional session, the body declared war on Japan with one dissenting vote, signed into law by FDR the same day.

All wars are unjustifiably justified based on Big Lies and deception, WW II no exception. Roosevelt wanted involvement in Europe’s war. He wanted legislation requiring US neutrality reversed.

After the Japanese code was broken, intercepted cables confirmed an attack was coming. The US tracked its fleet from the Kurile Islands to its North Pacific refueling point en route to Pearl Harbor on or about December 7.

At a December 5 cabinet meeting, Navy Secretary Frank Knox said: “Well, you know Mr. President, we know where the Japanese fleet is?”

Japan – Ending a War and Saving Lives?

Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s aide, Brigadier Gen. Bonner Fellers, called LeMay’s bombing of Tokyo “one of the most ruthless and barbaric killings of noncombatants in all history”, but LeMay was proud of his accomplishment in Japan, as he would later be in Korea, boasting that he successfully “scorched and boiled and baked to death well over half a million Japanese civilians, perhaps nearly a million”, in that one event in Tokyo alone. After the success of this first attack, LeMay was determined to continue, stating his intention to have Tokyo entirely “burned down – wiped right off the map”, and proceeded to carry out his homicidal determination with repeated fire-bombings covering an increasingly greater area of Japan.

Follow The Money: BlackRock, Vanguard Await New Opportunities In China

While the Western world controlled the 20th century, the 21st century could be soon controlled by China.

Six of the world's largest asset managers, including BlackRock and Vanguard, are eager to do more business in China, reported Bloomberg.

Sources said these firms had told regulators they plan to apply for fully-foreign-owned mutual fund licenses after China Securities Regulatory Commission said in Oct., that it would allow overseas institutions more power over onshore ventures in 2020.

Fidelity told Bloomberg via a statement this week that it's preparing to file for a mutual fund license in China.

These big Wall Street banks see nearly $12.8 trillion of investable assets in Chinese households.

Though China's economy is slowing with growth rates crashing to three-decade lows and a trade war with the US with no immediate resolution, Western bankers understand that by 2030, the center of the global economy could be China, not the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is, of course, is premised on the not necessarily strong supposition, that the US government won't order a war against it, to bomb it back to beyond the stone age, or try to "gum up the works" with some computer/financial sabotage.
