    Trump has the second highest approval rating amongst GOP since WWII

    Amazing... According to a recent Gallup Poll, Mr Trump's support among members of his own party at the 500-day mark of his presidency sits at 87%, second only to George W Bush's 96%, which came nine months after the September 11 World Trade Center attacks. A handful of other presidents...

    Leslie Groves ran WWII's Manhattan Project and Mueller is running today's Russiagate

    Both equally secret and both determinative of our nation's future as a free country. Since we would have won the pacific war anyway I would argue that Mueller's secret work is more important. Remember Pearl Harbor and remember the theft and treason of Trump on November 8, 2016.

    Could Germany have won WWII?

    I had a debate with my father about this the other night. He claims there is no way Germany could have won but I disagree and here are a few reasons. If Germany hadn't let all those soldiers at Dunkirk go they would have seriously hurt Britain. If they had maintained an alliance with...

    WWII Jet Pulled From Hudson

    WWII "jet", yep that's what the headline said. It was a P-47 performing in an air show that went down in the Hudson River yesterday. The pilot did not survive. They already pulled the airplane out and it looks pretty much intact, although I'm sure there are issues. I would assume that they...

    1000 WWII women pilots will be interred in Arlington (deemed not 'worthy' before)

    I didn't know about this. I didn't realize you were only allowed to be of service in 'certain' more importants ways in war before it counted to receive this honor. Why is that the LEADERS and decision makers have managed to exclude whole chunks of Americans for being the 'wrong kind of...

    World faces low inflation threat not seen since before WWII

    Since 1932 -- I wonder why they characterize that as since before WWII, instead of since the Great Depression? If the world falls into a deflationary cycle, The Great Depression is what is relevant, not WWII.

    Three NINE YEAR OLDS burn to death 88 year old WWII vet!!!

    Russia is fucked. Fucked. There is no future for that country. :( The old man was walking on a street in Penza, in the Northern Ural region. The three Grade 3 boys were playing in his way, and so he said some harsh words their way. A short distance later, the boys caught up to him, one had...

    PTSD issues in soldiers compared to WWII soldiers

    I think I know some reasons why it may be worse today, even Vietnam vets, compared to WWII. And I think it's because our conflict since WWII have not been noble causes. WWII vets came home heroes, to parades, and they were heroes throughout the entire world. Countries they liberated from...

    Shutdown overreach: More personnel sent to WWII memorial than Benghazi; Park Service

    Remember the reports that this administration wanted to make it as hard on americans as possible during a shutdown? Is there any doubt now? He is more interested in keeping wwII veterans out of a memorial than he was in securing benghazi.
