A Pineapple You Don’t Want On A Pizza

wwii-grenades-in-nursing-home-fridgeI believe Jerry Seinfeld once said, “If you make it to your 90th birthday, you should be able to do what you want. If you want to drive 90 mph, drive 90.”

I’m paraphrasing here, but the point he was trying to make was once you reach a certain age, you 1. don’t give a frak anymore, so 2. you should be able to do whatever you damn well please.

You know, like keeping explosive devices in your refrigerator.

Two World War II era grenades were found in a 91-year-old man’s refrigerator Friday at a New York nursing home.

A report of explosive devices at the Tappan Zee Manor Nursing Home led to an evacuation shortly before 3 p.m. while police conducted “an extensive search” of the building and the 91-year-old man’s car.

Clarkstown police said no other devices were found during the search, and the two grenades — a training hand grenade and a metal hand grenade — were removed by the bomb squad, who will X-ray the devices to see if they’re live.

The cops will never be able to pin the possession on the man; which is a good thing, since he seems like he’s a blast to be around.

The Leak Gets Sprung

traitor-bradley-manningDuring the Barack Obama regime, all information leaks were equal. Of course, some of those leaks were more equal than others.

Russian hacks? Bad. DNC hacks? Bad. Hacks which place our troops in danger? All good, baby!

President Obama commuted all but four months of the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of a 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted his administration and brought global prominence to WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures.

The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to kill herself last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the men’s military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction.

That is because she it is a traitor of the first order, and deserves to spend three decades in federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison? But wait, there’s more!

In addition, Mr. Obama on Tuesday commuted the sentence of Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was part of a Puerto Rican nationalist group that carried out a string of bombings in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

So Barry is ending his presidency in the way in which it began: surrounded by traitors and terrorists.

Repairing America’s Global Standing

US Sailors Detained By Iran

A congressman claims the Obama administration is purposely suppressing the details of Iran’s capture of American sailors, suggesting the sailors were treated more harshly than we were led to believe.

Rep. Randy Forbes (R., Va.) told the Free Beacon the Obama administration is still keeping details of the maritime incident under wraps. It could be a year or longer before the American public receives a full accounting of the incident, in which several U.S. sailors were abducted at gunpoint by the Iranian military.

Forbes suggested that Iran’s treatment of the U.S. sailors—which included filming them crying and forcing them to apologize at gunpoint—may have been much worse than what has been publicly reported.

Forbes is pushing a new measure that would increase sanctions on Tehran for its treatment of the U.S. sailors in order to hold Iran accountable for its aggressive behavior. (H/TAOSHQ)

The Navy has already sacked the sailors’ commander, so covering up the details is not a surprising move. I do find it interesting Obama wanted the Iran nuclear deal so badly, he not only caved on every issue, but – possibly – allowed Iran to harm our captured sailors.

Day Of Infamy

USS Arizona ExplodesSeventy-four years ago today, the Empire of Japan declared war on the United States by attacking the Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor.

The attack commenced at 7:48 a.m. Hawaiian Time. The base was attacked by 353 Japanese fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes in two waves, launched from six aircraft carriers. All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four sunk. All but Arizona were later raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war.

The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. Japanese losses were light: 29 aircraft and five midget submarines lost, and 64 servicemen killed.

I’ve posted about Pearl Harbor every day for the last ten years because 1. I think it’s important to remember, and 2. I believe it was the day America truly changed forever.
