Journalism At It’s Best

by ward on December 11, 2014

And no, it’s not Fox, or CNN, or the Gray Lady, or ABC, or any of the Big Media.

Nor is it Breitbart, or Michelle Malkin, or Little Green Footballs.

It hasn’t been mentioned on GMA, Hannity, or Limbaugh.

It’s the best kind of Journalism, and it was committed by a bunch of high school students.

See it HERE.

Considering that these students are subject to the authority of the school’s administration, and the school district, this took a lot of courage.  And… they did indeed commit “Journalism”, and they did it very well.

For more, Google “Danielle Watkins” – I warn you, you’ll be shocked.

Pearl Harbor Day

by ward on December 7, 2014

For America, today is the Day of Infamy.

For those of you who don’t pay attention, on this day, 7 December 1941, Naval and Air Forces of the Empire of Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, sinking or severely damaging major elements of the Fleet.

All of the battleships were either sunk or damaged.

Many other ships were sunk or damaged.

The two aircraft carriers were not in port, and were not damaged.

Submarine Base Pearl Harbor was not damaged.

Submarines from Pearl Harbor and the Philippines commenced “unrestricted submarine warfare” against anything Japanese that floated.  The results for Japan were disastrous.

Germany and Italy declared war against the United States.  Germany and Italy went down to defeat.

The attack on Pearl Harbor changed our world.

So, the Democrat Party got thumped badly on November 4th.  And it’s about to get worse – Sen. Landrieu (D-LA) is probably going to lose badly in the Louisiana runoff.   The Prez said that all of his policies were on the ballot, and his party went down in flames.   The Prez sez “I [...]
