52 US WW2 Submarines were still on the "Eternal Patrol" Until Recently. The number is now 51. The USS Harder has now been found.

"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as commanding officer of the U.S.S. Harder during her 5th war patrol in Japanese-controlled waters. Floodlighted by a bright moon and disclosed to an enemy destroyer escort which bore down with intent to attack. Comdr. Dealey quickly dived to periscope depth and waited for the pursuer to close range, then opened fire, sending the target and all aboard down in flames with his third torpedo. Plunging deep to avoid fierce depth charges, he again surfaced and, within nine minutes after sighting another destroyer, had sent the enemy down tail first with a hit directly amidship. Evading detection, he penetrated the confined waters off Tawi Tawi with the Japanese Fleet base six miles away and scored death blows on two patrolling destroyers in quick succession. With his ship heeled over by concussion from the first exploding target and the second vessel nose-diving in a blinding detonation, he cleared the area at high speed. Sighted by a large hostile fleet force on the following day, he swung his bow toward the lead destroyer for another "down-the-throat" shot, fired three bow tubes, and promptly crash-dived to be terrifically rocked seconds later by the exploding ship as the Harder passed beneath. This remarkable record of five vital Japanese destroyers sunk in five short-range torpedo attacks attests the valiant fighting spirit of Comdr. Dealey and his indomitable command." from Cmdr . Dealey's Congressional Medal of Honor  presentation. 

It is a very good story of a very brave commander and crew. The boat was a Gato Class submarine named USS "Hit 'em Harder" Harder. To read more, click HERE

This is a good sign that people are tired of the $PLC's bull$hit


The $PLC is cutting their staff by a fourth. Even though the commie leaning organization has a sizeable "war chest", the group that puts the make-believe rights of illegal aliens before the rights of American citizens, is having to downsize. I have a gut feeling that this decrease in popularity is due to more people being better informed and alternate news sources exposing the organization's radical views. 

"SPLC's decision has a catastrophic impact on the organization's work in support of immigrants seeking justice and its mission to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance human rights through support of educators," the SPLC union spokesperson said. "CEO and President Margaret Huang announced that the cuts would allow greater 'focus' on racial justice, but failed to explain how eliminating immigrant justice work and anti-racist education work served that goal.

What Did He Do? Go On.. Guess...

 

 

 

 


Ya gotta guess before you hit the page break.....

 

 

No Step On Snek....

  

  Was started around 2015 possibly as mockery of the right by the left. But, the left can't meme and

now it seems the Snek has become a thing for the right.

 

My post earlier was poking fun at the glowies trying to fit in. Allen noted, in the comments,

 that if that was the case, the truck would have been a 2024 with professional graphic wrapping

which is probably more accurate.
