Stern of US WW II destroyer discovered near remote Alaskan island: Survivor recounts harrowing day

By James Rogers | Fox News




World War II-era destroyer's stern found off Alaskan island
Researchers found the missing 75-foot stern section of the destroyer USS Abner Read just off the coast of Kiska, Alaska. 71 sailors lost their lives when the ship hit a Japanese mine in 1943.


In 1943, Daryl Weathers was a 19-year-old seaman aboard the destroyer USS Abner Read, which was conducting an anti-submarine patrol in the remote Aleutian Islands.

Almost 75 years to the day since the ship’s stern was torn off by a Japanese mine, the 94-year-old describes the harrowing event and the ship’s survival.

“I had been in the Navy just a short while,” he told Fox News, recounting the predawn hours of Aug. 18. 1943. “We were on submarine patrol. We were making a figure 8 pattern, we had been doing that for a day and a half.”

Suddenly, the ship turned and struck a mine. “Bam! This hit the port quarter, picked up the ship and broke the stern off,” he said, adding that the stern contained sleeping compartments. “The guys were sleeping back there, we lost a lot.”

BEIJING—Signs of unease with President Xi Jinping’s leadership have emerged amid public rancor over China’s trade tensions with the U.S., a sluggish economy and public-health and financial scandals.

In online essays, social-media posts and rare public protests, academics and ordinary Chinese have vented misgivings about Mr. Xi and the Communist Party-run bureaucracy, despite tightening curbs on public speech. Some criticism has been directed at the president and his policies, others at perceived government failings.

Hundreds of alumni from the prestigious Tsinghua University petitioned for the removal of a professor they accused of “misleading” officials and citizens with triumphalist claims of China’s superiority over the U.S.—a complaint that implies Beijing mishandled ties with Washington.

Chinese academics warned that Mr. Xi’s ambitious programs for developing Chinese industry and building global trade infrastructure could alienate other countries. Another Tsinghua professor penned a lengthy essay denouncing Mr. Xi’s leadership, particularly his moves to quash dissent and scrap term limits on his presidency.

James Clapper Whines About Trump Revoking Security Clearances

Katie Pavlich | @KatiePavlich
| Posted: Aug 15, 2018 4:40 PM





Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced from the daily briefing Wednesday afternoon President Trump has revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan and is considering doing the same for other politically motivated, former officials.

"I have also begun to review the more general question of the access to classified information by former government officials," Sanders said on behalf of President Trump. "As part of this review, I am evaluating action with respect to the following individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. Security clearances for those who still have them may be revoked, and those who have already their lost their security clearance may not be able to have it reinstated."

Former DNI director James Clapper, who regularly criticizes President Trump as a contributor for CNN, is responding to the revocation of Brennan's clearance and argues the move is an infringement on free speech.

The shocking deaths of two men in just four days who intentionally crashed the airplanes they were piloting highlights a form of suicide that’s gaining more prominence.

On Monday, Duane Youd was killed after crashing a twin-engine Cessna 525 into the Utah home he owned just hours after being charged with domestic violence. Police said the 47-year-old intentionally piloted the aircraft into the building where his wife and a child were staying.

Photos of the wreckage showed the white plane charred and in pieces in the front yard nearby an overturned and crushed car. Most of the upscale house was still intact, but heavily burned in the front. Youd’s wife and the child escaped the crash unharmed.

Trump revokes ex-CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance

By Brooke Singman | Fox News




President Trump revokes John Brennan's security clearance
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders reads a statement from President Trump, which cites former CIA Director John Brennan's 'erratic conduct and behavior.'


President Trump has revoked the security clearance for former CIA Director John Brennan, the White House announced Wednesday, in the first decision to come from a review of access for several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders read a statement on behalf of the president during the start of the press briefing, saying Brennan “has a history that calls his credibility into question.”

The statement also claimed Brennan had been "leveraging" the clearance to make "wild outbursts" and claims against the Trump administration in the media.

“The president has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information and who has access to it, and that’s what he’s doing is fulfilling that responsibility in this action,” Sanders said Wednesday.

FacebookZoo — a new, anti-Facebook blogging site — went live on Tuesday despite threats from Facebook’s legal team.

The site is pitching itself as a haven for small and midsize publishers who are looking to vent about Facebook algorithm changes that slashed their customer and ad bases earlier this year.

OPINION_ The violent Left is a serious problem, stop parroting their propaganda

WASHINGTON EXAMINER

OPINION

The violent Left is a serious problem, stop parroting their propaganda

by Washington Examiner
| August 14, 2018 12:00 AM

On Sunday, a relatively small group of white nationalists, under the banner of “Unite the Right,” chose to make an ostentatious celebration of the anniversary of their rally in Charlottesville — the one in which one of their number killed a counterprotester with his car. This time, they protested directly in front of the White House.

Naturally, this attracted a significantly larger counterprotest, filled mostly with goodwill opponents of their racist ideology. But the hooligan-like behavior of some in the crowd, who threw eggs and water bottles and shot fireworks at journalists and the police, served as a reminder that the Hitler Junior crowd, odious as they are, are a much smaller and less threatening gang than the so-called "antifa," that mob of militant leftists known for their political street violence.

Fortunately, their uncivil antics were kept far milder than usual, in spite of their own best efforts to provoke a police confrontation. But bear in mind that both their numbers and their reach are far and away greater than anything the pathetic nationalists could ever muster. Their reach is also truly national.

Unlike the crowd that appeared last year in Charlottesville to universal condemnation, these rioters, with their cop-killer rhetoric and their skull-cracking, window-smashing tactics of political persuasion, now hold sway over many weak-minded politicians who sympathize with, collaborate with, or fear them too much to resist.

This is a dangerous time in the life of the nation. The violent Left wants to take advantage of a rise in popular belief in the illegitimacy of the United States government. They are also trying to use their battle with white nationalists in order to gain sympathy from ordinary people for their vile cause.

Beware, therefore, that when you call them nice names like “anti-fascist,” you are helping them achieve that goal.

The media’s blatant hypocrisy — even about media-bashing

Welcome to the age of self-congratulatory media. “Democracy dies in darkness” goes the ridiculous tagline on the Washington Post’s front page. Reporters openly call themselves heroes and firefighters.

Yet when it doesn’t fit the standard left-wing narrative, our Guardians of the Galaxy are MIA.

On Sunday, the Unite the Right II rally of white supremacists fizzled out. Antifa demonstrators in Charlottesville, Va., who gathered to mark the anniversary of the first Unite the Right rally, threw eggs at Secret Service, were arrested for assaulting a man wearing a Make America Great Again hat, launched fireworks and smoke bombs at police and assaulted NBC reporter Cal Perry. Perry had his camera knocked out of his hands while the protester screamed profanities at him.

The story appears on various media sites, and several reporters tweeted about the attack, but the outrage was muted. Instead, nearly every outlet went out of their way to gently describe the antifa mob. The headlines at CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post made sure to call the group “anti-hate protesters.”

Donald Trump didn’t invent deep mistrust of the media, he merely capitalized on it. Over 70 percent of Americans think traditional media outlets report news they know to be fake. News consumers see media folks worrying about threats that don’t exist while ignoring actual incidents of violence by people the media doesn’t wish to offend.

It should be very easy to care about the physical assault of a fellow journalist. It should be quite simple to defend local news from a power-hungry wannabe authoritarian mayor. But you’d have to be dedicated to the industry instead of your ideology — and this week we learned just how many in the press choose the latter when the two conflict.

Former FBI official: Firing Strzok was justified – he, Comey and McCabe disgraced the FBI

By Chris Swecker | Fox News




FBI fires Peter Strzok over anti-Trump text messages
Strzok's attorney says the FBI's decision is a 'departure from typical bureau practice'; reaction from Rep. Darrell Issa, Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee.


Both supporters and opponents of President Trump should welcome the firing of disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok, announced Monday. He and fired FBI Director James Comey and fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe have done more damage to America’s premier law enforcement agency than anyone in its storied 110-year history.

Because President Trump has frequently tweeted denunciations of this trio, it’s understandable that many people view their firings as unjustified political vendettas by the president against his critics.

But while their clearly is no love lost between the president, Strzok, Comey and McCabe, there is no doubt that by any objective standard, all three deserved to be fired for misconduct. I say this as someone who spent 24 years proudly serving as an FBI special agent and who retired as an assistant director in charge of all FBI criminal investigations.

________

The newly fired FBI agent, Comey and McCabe were clearly motivated by self-serving hubris and blind hatred of Donald Trump rather than rules and principals that are built into our criminal justice system to protect all Americans from the formidable powers invested in our federal investigative agencies.

Strzok, Comey and McCabe should stand in shame and dishonor for their failure to live up to the core FBI values of fidelity, bravery and integrity. America is better off with the firings of these three from an outstanding law enforcement agency.
