We Will Always Remember

While I am a few days late, I wanted to mention one of the nation’s most renowned terrorist attacks, committed three decades ago in Los Angeles.

32 years ago, the world watched in horror as events unfolded at Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles. A group of German terrorists led by the evil Hans Gruber disrupted the Christmas Party being celebrated by employees of the Nakatomi Corporation, a major logistics and construction firm headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Nakatomi CEO Joseph Takagi was murdered by the terrorists, along with Director of International Development Harry Ellis, who was shot by Gruber while enjoying a Coke as he attempted to facilitate a negotiation between the terrorists and vacationing New York City police officer John McClane.

Ultimately, it was the heroic efforts of McClane and Los Angeles police Sgt. Al Powell that disrupted the terrorists’ mercenary plot to steal $640 million in negotiable Nakatomi Corp. bearer bonds and retire on a Caribbean beach while earning 20%. Gruber died when he fell from a 32nd floor window while clutching a gun in one hand and McClane’s watch in another. (H/T – RedneckGeezer)

Today we remember the fallen, and vow to prevent another Nakatomi Plaza incident.

  1. I always relive the drama and watch video of this terrible incident every Christmas. Next on my list will be remembering the Christmas Eve attack on the airport in our nation’s capitol.

  2. A couple of years ago I had to explain to my wife why Die Hard is a Christmas movie. It has:

    1) A Christmas Tree
    2) Christmas songs
    3) A Christmas party
    4) Fireworks
    5) Loud explosions
    6) Someone dressing up as Santa
    7) And a happy ending

    She still doesn’t believe me. {Sniff.}

    1. I can’t get anyone in my family to believe it either. But then, I firmly believe that Die Hard and Die Hard 2 are both Christmas movies.

    Cathy – Where the bad guys get theirs. Unlike in real life where Russian collusion hoaxers get away scot-free?

    MelP – No better way to go out.

      1. So… I have never considered myself a conspiracy theorist and really don’t feel like starting, but it’s 2020 and we’ve seen countless things said to have been conspiracy theory come true. I stumbled across this site awhile back. Pretty much kept it to myself, but it gets more interesting every day.

        This guy says the Nashville thing somebody taking out an NSA database. He’s says a LOT of other crazy stuff I would laugh at if it wasn’t 2020, filled with crazy things. Now, you can all go decide if it’s some nutball or somebody worth listening to. Might want to go back a month and watch some of his other stuff.

        Frankly, I’d rather just conclude it’s some guy running a meth lab in his camper.

  5. For the conspiracy theorists amongst us:
    Copied from a friend:
    “AT&T got a contract to do forensic audit on Dominion voting machines and those machines were being moved to Nashville this past week.
    The former owner of the AT&T building in Nashville, William Kennard, is a board member for Cerberus Capital Management and AT&T…. He also was Bill Clinton’s FCC chair, and Obama’s Ambassador to the EU.
    Dominion voting is owned by Cerberus Capital Management…. Cerberus is run by Staple Street Execs. Joe Bidens Brother in Law, Steven Owens, is the cofounder of Staple Street Execs along with William Kennard (mentioned above).
    Super Computer in TN was connected to the AT&T internet in NASHVILLE…. yesterday evening the Cumberland river cooling system was compromised due to internet outage and Supercomputer fried…..
    If you don’t know, “Kraken” is a reference to a supercomputer former prosecuter, Sidney Powell, has been talking about.
    So, the explosion “just happened” to be at the AT&T location where they “just so happen” to control the cooling system for the super computer and house the dominion voting machines and drives for forensic audit…
    Does it make sense now why no lives were lost? Does it make sense now why the FBI task lead couldn’t even put together a coherent sentence in the press conference yesterday? Does it make sense why the mayor was making light of the situation, almost laughing yesterday?”

    Who is supplying the mushrooms? Makes almost as much sense as an Amish dive-by…

    1. The crazy MonkeyWerx video above also makes reference about what you wrote. I never ever was a conspiracy theorist until this year. There is some crazy shit going on. Conspiracy theory aside, I absolutely believe there was massive election fraud. I believe the Chinese virus has something to do with how the election was stolen, I believe the Chinese are behind much of it, and I believe I am turning into a conspiracy theorist, but if it’s true, I guess I’m not an crazy nutball. I’m really waiting to see what happens on January 6th. Something big is coming down the pike, but who knows what it is.
