    December 7th, Remembering Pearl Harbor. How Hitler lured America into Europe's War

    The real villain was President Franklin D. Roosevelt, “who likes to chat nicely at the fireside while nations and their soldiers fight in snow and ice.” FDR came from “an extremely wealthy family” in contrast to Hitler’s “small and poor family.” And the president, unable to deal with his country’s national debt, devalued dollar and high unemployment, concentrated instead on foreign affairs, using his influence “to create conflicts, intensify existing conflicts, and, above all, to keep conflicts from being resolved peacefully.”

    There is a fair amount of evidence the US fedgov knew an attack was likely coming, but chose to ignore the information.

    A good place to start is the hearings that cashiered Admiral Kimmel after Pearl Harbor. He repeatedly warned the fleet was at risk at Pearl Harbor and requested to take actions to protect the fleet, which were denied.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Well, they did move out the carriers ... and about 6 mos. later, at Midway, the course of the war was almost predetermined.

    "Day of Infamy" line stolen by FDR from the Queen of Hawaii when Anglo-Americans overthrew her government and installed the Bayonet Constitution.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Very much like the current administration.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
