At 7:45 a.m., Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese Imperial Navy attacked Pearl Harbor with more than 350 bombers and torpedo planes, launched from six aircraft carriers. They sank 12 ships and destroyed 188 aircraft — killing 2,402 American service members and wounding another 1282.
A day that changed lives forever
That day was more than just a horrible tragedy in American history. For many, it was a learning experience. Many service members were in their late teens and early 20s — boys, who were expected to react, understand and even lead like experienced men.
“I was just finishing morning chow when all of a sudden the planes flew about 200 feet over our heads,” said Samuel Clower, former first sergeant of Headquarters Company, 19th Infantry Regiment, 24th ID. “We could tell that they were Japanese planes, because of the rising sun emblem on them, but we had no idea why they were here.”
“Many began that day as boys, but quickly became men. It wasn’t a choice; it wasn’t an option. It was just one of the things we faced and dealt with. We were thrust into manhood, and we all grew up that day.”

Some call it ‘Globalism vs Nationalism’, at other times it is best described as “Wall Street -vs- Main Street”; however, the overarching bigger picture is a battle over economics and the financial power structures that oppose President Trump.
This is not a Republican -vs- Democrat issue; this is a larger confrontation between those who hold financial power and a singular person, President Donald Trump, who is determined to remove that grip.
There are massive international corporate and financial interests who are inherently at risk from President Trump’s “America-First” economic and trade platform. Believe it or not, President Trump is up against an entire world economic establishment.

Let's open another early Christmas gift.
It has been said that Donald Trump takes orders from no one, but seeks input from all, even his enemies, and I believe that’s true. The game of politics eludes him, and he seldom follows the party line. But like the indomitable commander of the Third Army in Europe during World War II, Gen. George Patton, Trump believes he has a destiny. He feels he has a duty to rebuild the confidence of the American people and restore the foundations of our way of life.
Trump has more accomplishments at this point in his presidency than any president in history. What makes the list even more amazing is that he has done it with the media, at least half the United States Congress and legions of left-wing celebrities trashing every move he makes.
The president has kept his promises on issue after issue. Even his most ardent supporters have been surprised by how many of the goals he outlined at the start of his campaign have already been accomplished. He is keeping the faith, and on those such as immigration and the border wall where the resistance is strongest, he has been relentless — and he isn’t stopping.
The Cross Hall. Christmas has arrived at the White House. First lady Melania Trump unveiled the 2018 White House holiday decor on Monday. She designed the decor, which features a theme of "American Treasures."

President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump light the National Christmas Tree.
Let's open an early Christmas gift.
With the last race of the midterm elections decided in Mississippi, the U.S. Senate will soon have a 53-47 Republican majority. This will be needed as a check on House Democrats who are promising to spend the next two years attacking our president. But even more importantly, this GOP Senate is going to remake the federal judiciary.
President Trump's judicial nominees already account for one-sixth of active judges on the federal bench, with 84 of them confirmed thus far. This historically fast pace will continue and accelerate. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), who is expected to take over the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on Nov.14th: “If I’m chairman next year, we are going to do judges, judges, and more judges.”
Liberal judges have used (and are using) their authority to make and rewrite laws, pushing forward an agenda that Democrats could not (and cannot) pass though legislation. This abuse will stop when we have federal courts that adhere to the original intentions of the framers, members of proposing bodies, and ratifiers of our Constitution. A return to original intent will have generational impact, supporting and reaffirming the freedoms Americans hold dear.
This will be President Trump's greatest legacy .. a lasting gift. Merry Christmas

For 75 minutes on Thursday night, Nov. 29, the IDF blasted Iranian, Hizballah and Syrian targets in its biggest ever surface missile attack on Syria, DEBKAfile’s intelligence and military sources can now reveal. The massive Israeli cross-border assault inflicted heavy casualties on the Iranians, their militias, Hizballah and the Syrian army, including fatalities.
Syrian sources reported shortly before midnight of Nov. 29, that Israeli air attacks had been ongoing from 21:30 over areas in the Damascus vicinity. Three waves of air and missile attacks had struck Al Kiswah, south of the capital, Qanaqar to the southwest, and Quneitra opposite Israel’s Golan border.
Arab broadcasting stations claimed that flames were rising over Damascus airport from targeted aircraft. Also hit, they reported, were pro-Iranian militias’ command posts and bases, various missile batteries and Hizballah forces.

TRUMP THREATENS TO ‘HIT [DEMS] SO HARD’ BY DECLASSIFYING
‘DEVASTATING’ DOCUMENTS RELATING TO SPECIAL COUNSEL
“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want to go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” the president stated to the outlet.
He continued, “I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are.”

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has requested the deployment of civilian law enforcement officers from several other Cabinet departments to the U.S.-Mexico border as early as next week, according to an internal memo obtained by POLITICO.
In what current and former U.S. officials said would be an unprecedented move, the officers — who in most cases have duties entirely unrelated to border security — would help Border Patrol agents repel what the memo calls “migrant caravans originating from Central America.”
Border Patrol Arrests MS-13 Caravan Member
U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested a member of the infamous Salvadoran MS-13 gang who admitted to authorities that he traveled with a caravan of Central American migrants who were hoping to qualify for asylum in America.
Agents arrested Jose Villalobos-Jobel, 29, shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday east of the Calexico Port of Entry on the U.S. side of the border, Customs and Border Protection said in a statement Wednesday.
Geraldo could not be reached for comment.
As you watch the struggle along the border, remember two things:
First, this is an ongoing evolutionary conflict. Every day is a snapshot. You can’t look at it in isolation.
Everyone is learning from everyone else. The leftist advisers are studying the Trump administration and advising the would-be illegal immigrants what their next steps should be.
The U.S. government is watching the illegal immigrants and is modifying tactics to try to keep smothering their efforts, keep them off balance, and block them from getting into the United States. The news media are constantly looking for new ways to embarrass the American government and put the illegal immigrants in the best possible light to build sympathy for them.
Second, there is a huge worldwide audience watching. Every estimate of foreigners who would like to move to the United States runs into the tens of millions — and many estimates run well over 100 million.
All these people are watching and assessing their own chances of breaking the law and sneaking into the United States.
If the American government succeeds in closing down the caravans headed toward our border and blocking them from entering the United States, then these would-be immigrants may conclude they have to wait and follow the legal rules for coming to America.
The future is going to be very different depending on who wins the current war on our southern border.
"If the Democratic Party and its presidential candidates in 2020 are seen as abolish-ICE, pro-amnesty, open borders liberals, they will pull their party out of the mainstream of this nation on the most divisive issue of our time -- the Third World invasion of the West" - By Pat Buchanan
Trump's Crucial Test at San Ysidro
(Excerpt) "According to a new Gallup Poll, concern over immigration and illegal aliens soared from 13 to 21 percent of the public in November, as the No. 1 problem on the minds of the American people.
And this was before Sunday's violent collision at San Ysidro where the Border Patrol fired rubber bullets and used tear gas to stop a mob of hundreds -- out of the thousands of migrants housed in a stadium in Tijuana -- from breaching our border and pouring into our country.
For Trump, the die is cast. Not only are border security, the wall, and his pledge to halt the illegal invasion of his country what got him elected, they appear to be a primary argument for his re-election."
America's border war isn't going away and surrender Donkeys are on the wrong side of the invasion.
Keep the faith.
No Border = No Country
TRUMP THREATENS TO
- He called on Congress to fund his border wall, declaring that the caravan is 'not coming into the USA'
- Border officers fired tear gas and rubber bullets into crowds of people as they neared the border
- Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said she would not put up with the 'lawlessness'
- Mexico vowed Sunday to deport about 500 who tried to 'violently' and 'illegally' cross the border
