Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.
Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island.
This morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island.
Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.
As commander in chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.
Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us.
No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.
I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.
With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounding determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.
I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.

Norm Eisen, the counsel chosen by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee to question “expert” witnesses Wednesday at its first impeachment inquiry, founded an organization funded in part by billionaire left-wing financier George Soros.
Eisen founded Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) before going on to work for President Barack Obama as the White House “ethics czar,” where he oversaw the opening of visitor logs (though administration officials simply responded by taking meetings with lobbyists offsite).

Some in the media are trying to make the Jeffrey Epstein scandal all about President Donald Trump, but it turns out high profile Democratic politicians and Hollywood stars were friends with Epstein too.
A federal judge has affirmed a Colorado law that effectively bans business owners from freely expressing in public their religious beliefs about marriage and homosexuality.
Colorado was the loser in a similar dispute, the Masterpiece Cakeshop case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the state show "hostility" to the Christian beliefs of Jack Phillips in its handling of his refusal to make a cake for a same-sex wedding. Since then, openly homosexual Democratic Gov. Jared Polis has pursued a gay-rights agenda that includes allowing people to indicate their sex on driver's licenses according to their "gender identity" and banning counselors from helping young people who want to rid themselves of same-sex attractions.

At one time, the elite at least attempted to conceal their boundless enthusiasm for population control from the general public, but now they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.
On Tuesday, an alarming new study that advocates global population control as one of the solutions to the “climate emergency” that we are facing was published in the journal BioScience. This document has already been signed by 11,258 scientists from 153 different countries, and it openly calls for a reduction in the human population of our planet. This has always been the endgame for the climate change cult, but now a big push is being made to make the public believe that there is a “scientific consensus” that this is necessary.
You can find a summary of the report here, and I would very much encourage you to read it, because it is essentially a blueprint for where the elite intend to take humanity in the years ahead.
Watch the Movie "Executive Action" from 45 years ago explains just how the Deep State and the liberal left are doing today. Bill Gates, a large proponent of population control basically has said the same thing!
Most stories of Thanksgiving history start with the harvest celebration of the pilgrims and the indians that took place in the autumn of 1621. Although they did have a three-day feast in celebration of a good harvest, and the local indians did participate, this "first Thanksgiving" was not a holiday, simply a gathering. There is little evidence that this feast of thanks led directly to our modern Thanksgiving Day holiday. Thanksgiving can, however, be traced back to 1863 when Pres. Lincoln became the first president to proclaim Thanksgiving Day. The holiday has been a fixture of late November ever since.
However, since most school children are taught that the first Thanksgiving was held in 1621 with the pilgrims and indians, let us take a closer look at just what took place leading up to that event, and then what happened in the centuries afterward that finally gave us our modern Thanksgiving.
The Pilgrims who sailed to this country aboard the Mayflower were originally members of the English Separatist Church. They were NOT the Puritans that we read so much about. Puritans did not believe in separting themselves from society, as the Pilgrims did. They had earlier fled their home in England and sailed to Holland (The Netherlands) to escape religious persecution. There, they enjoyed more religious tolerance, but they eventually became disenchanted with the Dutch way of life, thinking it ungodly. Seeking a better life, the Separatists negotiated with a London stock company to finance a pilgrimage to America. Most of those making the trip aboard the Mayflower were non-Separatists, but were hired to protect the company's interests. Only about one-third of the original colonists were Separatists.
This case is a study in FALSE PROSECUTION BEFORE TRUMP. These prosecutors should be in jail. I have watched this story evolve for many years now, and EVERYONE (including DNA Evidence experts) knew these men were not guilty. SO DID PROSECUTORS! Justice in America is not about guilt or innocence, but piling up convictions at any cost! Trump is going through this NOW! YOU MAY BE NEXT! God warned us that in our time, "there is no justice in the Land," says the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. And there isn't!
The city of Norfolk has agreed to pay (from left to right) Eric Wilson, Danial Williams, Joseph Dick and Derek Tice $4.9million to the sailors and the state agreed to pay $3.5million. The four sailors were convicted in 1997 rape and killing of Michelle Moore-Bosko (inset). DNA evidence linked another man, Omar Ballard, to the crimes. Three of the men were granted conditional pardons in 2009 but their convictions remained on the books. Wilson had failed to get his conviction overturned in court because he had already completed his sentence when he brought the challenge. The men have long said they confessed only after being intimidated by police. Their case was championed by multi-million selling author John Grisham, (inset, bottom right).
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has a Republican-appointed majority following the Senate's confirmation of a nominee by President Trump.
With the approval Tuesday of Judge Robert J. Luck by a 64-31 vote, the 11th Circuit become the third federal appeals court to flip to a majority of Republican-appointed active judges under Trump, the Washington Times reported.
Luck was appointed to the Florida Supreme Court earlier this year by Gov. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The 11th Circuit now has six active Republican-appointed judges and six Democratic-appointed ones. With the addition of senior judges to that count, the circuit has 11 Republican-appointed and nine Democratic.
It was “an abuse of power … 100 percent,” she said Saturday night in a speech in Australia.
The former White House intern, who was just 22 when the president seduced her, said she had “clung so steadfastly to this notion that [it] was a real, consensual relationship, [but] as we started to have public conversations that were different about consent, as we started to recognize abuse of power in different ways, these structures started to crumble around powerful men who have been able to engage in [bad] behaviors and be lauded and celebrated.”
Lewinsky is right that some rich and powerful men now are being held accountable for past sexual wrongdoing that once was condoned by everyone in their privileged social stratum.
But, on the other hand, many of these men still don’t seem to comprehend that the music has stopped on the sexual free-for-all of previous decades, nor do many of their celebrity enablers and sycophants who turned a blind eye for decades.
Pew stated: "More than eight-in-ten members of the Silent Generation (those born between 1928 and 1945) describe themselves as Christians (84%), as do three-quarters of Baby Boomers (76%). In stark contrast, only half of Millennials (49%) describe themselves as Christians; four-in-ten are religious 'nones,' and one-in-ten Millennials identify with non-Christian faiths."
Some scholars, like Byron Johnson of Baylor, object that some Americans described as "nones" actually attend non-denominational churches, but are misclassified as if they are unbelievers.
In 1798, Timothy Dwight, the president of Yale, warned, "Where there is no religion, there is no morality. … With the loss of religion…the security of life, liberty and property are buried in ruins."
The scary thing about Christianity losing influence in society is what it means to morality in America – and thus to freedom. As William Penn once noted, "If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants."
Yet our cultural elites do so much to banish any vestiges of religion in the public square.

A new poll From The YouGov–Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation found that 7 in 10 American millennials would vote for a socialist. The poll also found that 50 percent of millennials and 51 percent of Generation Z have a somewhat or very unfavorable view of capitalism.
So what does their future hold as they reach for a hell on Earth filled with empty grocery store shelves? One thing this moronic love affair with totalitarianism will inevitably foist upon these spoiled anti-American generations is the harvesting of their own organs.
Devin Nunes on Wednesday led the Republican defense of Donald Trump in the first public impeachment hearing, charging Democrats with being obsessed with claims the president colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.
He also charged Democrats tried to get nude photos of the president and brought up the infamous, unproven Steele dossier that claimed the Russians had blackmail material on Trump.
'We are asked to simply forget about Democrats on this committee falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence of collusion, between President Trump and Russians,' the Republican congressman from California said in his opening statement.
A man who spent 11 years in prison for a series of Los Angeles armed robberies he didn't commit has been exonerated Tuesday after prosecutors agreed he had been wrongly convicted.
A courtroom erupted in applause as Ruben Martinez Jr. was found innocent and walked free from Los Angeles Superior Court.
A jubilant Martinez, 49, said his prayers had been answered and he was not a bitter man. He thanked his wife, Maria, for not only standing by him but pursuing his freedom vigorously.
'I did not do this time by myself,' Martinez said after the short court hearing, KABC reported. 'My family did time. My wife did time with me, did the 11 years with me. I couldn't do it on my own, on my own strength. It was God's strength that got me through this.' MORE>>>>
A must read about how rapist, murderers and other criminals are vindicated by "liberal justice" and NOT FACTS!
The African folktale version of the 1989 Central Park gang-rape has swept the populace! The mob thirsts for vengeance against evil spirits, like Linda Fairstein.
In the past week, Fairstein, the head of the sex crimes unit of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office during the trials of the accused rapists, has been exiled from society, like an albino chased from the village at the instigation of witch doctors. In a matter of days, she’s been forced off of a half-dozen corporate boards, dropped by her publisher and dumped by her talent agency.
The actual evidence against the five boys convicted of the rape was overwhelming. Nothing has changed that.
This week, we’ll look not at the proof of their guilt, but at the proof of their alleged “exonerations.”
In 2002, the convictions of the five Central Park rapists were vacated on the word of a psychopath, Matias Reyes, who suddenly announced that he, too, raped the jogger – not a surprise – and also that he’d acted alone – not possible.
What the police had against the Central Park Five were detailed confessions, on videotape, given in the presence of their parents or adult relatives; the deeply incriminating statements of at least a half-dozen of their friends and acquaintances; and the defendants’ knowledge of facts about the crime that only the perpetrators would know.
We’ll review some of the guilt evidence next week.
In 2014, Joe Morrissey, then a 57-year-old delegate to the Virginia General Assembly, plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to 12 months in jail (with six months suspended) because of a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old office assistant at his law firm.
On Tuesday, he won his election to the Virginia Senate. I'll give you one guess what his political affiliation is.
That's right, he's a Democrat. And he won his election with more than 60 percent of the vote.
So goes the idea about where Democrats in Virginia (and the rest of the country) stands on the policy of rape and abusing women. A Governor who lied about wearing blackface was ready to be lynched in-order to replace him with a Black Democrat, until it turned out he raped two women. We have the Epstein coverup and murder ( all Democrats) and the main stream media firing anyone who leaks the TRUTH about it all! Funny, they want to protect whistleblowers against Trump, but fire their own whistleblowers!
Stories in the News Today exposing The Plain Truth:
A Satanist 'children's ministry' in Tennessee has announced plans to teach their beliefs to students who don't want to study the Bible.
Knox County officials said they were considering a program that would allow pupils to miss class for church-sponsored bible study.
Local school board members are preparing to vote on a proposed Bible Release Time program for students who want to attend an hour-long Christianity course at a local church.
But the group of Satanists have responded to the proposal by launching the Satanic Children's Ministry of Knoxville, because they believe public schools should not promote religion, and if they do, all religions should be represented. MORE
There were at least “50 very important people” who had motive to want Jeffrey Epstein dead, Rudy Giuliani said.
President Trump’s attorney – and ex-New York City mayor – said those people would have had a “tremendous motive to kill him” and that the Manhattan lockup where Epstein was housed is so small that “almost everything is within view” of guards.
“There’s probably 50 very important people who have a motive to kill him,” he said Tuesday on Fox. “Not alleging anyone named, but it’s true. We know some people are in a lot of trouble because of Epstein and they know who they are.” MORE
It seems, according to a federal judge's decision protecting the Southern Poverty Law Center's practice of labeling Christian organizations as "hate groups," that just about anyone can be labeled a "hate group."
Judge Myron H. Thompson found that the definitions of "hate group" vary so widely that the slam is protected by the First Amendment, even if it causes harm.
The ruling came in a case brought by D. James Kennedy Ministries against SPLC, which routinely labels anyone who disagrees with its pro-transgender, pro-homosexual, pro-abortion agenda as a hater or "hate group."
In fact, the ministry, which is appealing the ruling, had been prevented from participating in an online donation program because of the label.
But "the term 'hate group,'" Thompson wrote, "has no single, commonly understood meaning."
Somewhere Bill Maher is smiling. A new Pew Survey (Oct. 17, 2019) has come out, reporting a decline of Christianity in America and the rise of the "nones." The nones are those who have no religious affiliation.
The report states, "65% of American adults describe themselves as Christians when asked about their religion, down 12 percentage points over the past decade. Meanwhile, the religiously unaffiliated share of the population, consisting of people who describe their religious identity as atheist, agnostic or 'nothing in particular' now stands at 26%, up from 17% in 2009. Both Protestantism and Catholicism are experiencing losses of population share."
Included in the bad news is the report that people are attending church less frequently: "Over the last decade, the share of Americans who say they attend religious services at least once or twice a month dropped by 7 percentage points, while the share who say they attend religious services less often (if at all) has risen by the same degree."
