Sailors injured after Navy destroyer
Fitzgerald collides with merchant ship

Navy Times, by Jon Simkins*

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/16/2017 7:44:00 PM

Seven sailors are missing after the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a merchant vessel just southwest of Yokosuka, Japan, according to Japan´s NHK news network. The Fitzgerald´s crew is fighting to save the ship, according to three sources with knowledge of internal reports. The commanding officer was incapacitated in the accident and the executive officer is in command. The Fitzgerald suffered extensive damage beneath the waterline. Initial reports suggested that Auxiliary Machine Room 1 and two crew berthings were completely flooded. Because the collision occurred around 2:30 a.m., most crew members not standing watch would be in the berthing.

Comments:
There is a link to a video in the article. The damage is really bad.

Prayers for the sailors aboard the USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62). You can´t be too careful underway at night.

Cmdr. Bryce Benson has one thing in common with the Chief of Naval Operations--they both have advanced as far as they are going to go in the navy.

Washington Free Beacon Senior Writer Adam Kredo made an appearance on Sean Hannity´s radio show Friday, where he discussed his recent reporting on Samantha Power´s unmasking, as well as firings by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. On Wednesday, Kredo reported that former Obama Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power "unmasked" — i.e. revealed the names of otherwise anonymous individuals in intelligence transcripts — hundreds of people in the final year of the Obama administration.

Former President Barack Obama turned 56 on Friday, and his wife marked the occasion with a sweet message on Twitter. Michelle Obama posted two throwback pictures show her husband celebrating his 43rd birthday in 2010, his second year in office. The cute photos show daughters Malia and Sasha, then still just 12- and 9-years-old, excitedly pitching in to help their dad blow out the candles. Mrs Obama posted the message ahead of their annual vacation to Martha´s Vineyard, their first return to the island since becoming private citizens again.

The new Bruce Willis trailer for the remake of the 1974 flick, Death Wish, has been released and people are outraged over the violent vigilantism and rampant gun use. The ultra dark and hyper-violent tone of the trailer has Willis´ character Paul Kersey, whose family is shattered when his wife killed and his daughter viciously raped and paralyzed after a home burglary. He takes his revenge to the streets with an enormous arsenal of weapons. Movie critics and social media users commented on the tone deaf film. ´Pretty sure the NRA just found their next ad,´ wrote one Twitter user. ´Death Wish shouldn´t

Dershowitz: ‘Ethnic And Racial

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to impanel a grand jury in Washington, D.C. will prove “very unfavorable” to President Trump, in part because of the “ethnic and racial composition” of jury members, says constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz. “I think it’s a tactical move designed to send a message that if the prosecutor decides to prosecute, he will have a real advantage with the jury pool where the case will be held,” Dershowitz said in an interview on Friday with WABC radio host Rita Cosby. The retired Harvard Law School professor was responding to new reports that Mueller has impaneled a

California’s top labor law enforcer wants federal immigration agents to stay away from offices where state investigators weigh claims about underpaid employees and workplace retaliation. Labor Commissioner Julie Su last month directed her staff to turn away Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents unless the federal officers have warrants. Her directive followed three instances over the past 10 months in which immigration agents sought information about California workers who had filed claims against employers. In two cases, immigration agents attempted to attend hearings where investigators discuss claims with workers and their employers, Su said. In all three cases, the agents left when they

During an interview with the Arizona Republic, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) shot down the idea that building a big beautiful wall along the Mexican border will solve the issues of illegal immigration and the illegal drug trade. While the White House continues to push Congress to approve funding for the wall, McCain expressed skepticism that the Senate would jump on board the Trump administration’s vision, using a very famous wall as an example. “I’m not against a border wall, OK,” McCain noted. “But go to China and you’ll see a border wall there.” The Arizona lawmaker continued, “We need technology,

President Trump was awake early on this "employment report" Friday, tweeting about jobs, regulation-busting, and consumer confidence, among other things. A few hours later, the Labor Department´s Bureau of Labor Statistics said the economy added 209,000 jobs in July; the number of employed people jumped by 345,000 to 153,513,000 in July, setting a third straight monthly record; the number of Americans counted as not in the labor force, meaning they don´t have a job and are not looking for one, dropped for a third straight month to 94,657,000; and the nation´s unemployment rate also dropped a tenth of a point,

On Friday, Neil Cavuto ripped Newsweek for their latest cover depicting President Trump as a ‘lazy boy’, calling it “over the top.” “I wouldn’t say representative all of mainstream media, this is a bit extreme- but this is an opinion piece that just bashes the president,” he began, “and six months into his presidency, seems to take the conclusion he’s a total disaster with little chance of turning things around.” (Snip) He then slammed the article for comparing Trump to Al Bundy of Married… With Children fame for his “white discontent” as well as former President Warren Harding for being

Two Republican senators who voted against the "skinny" healthcare repeal last week said they were concerned the bill cut funding for Planned Parenthood, and that they were working in the best interest of their states. "The issue of family planning services, cancer screenings, [and] women care probably does resonate with us more than it does with our male colleagues, and to me it was so unfair to single out one Medicaid provider and say to women in particular, ‘You can´t choose which health care provider you want to go to,´" said Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who appeared on CNN with Sen.

Clinton family confidant Sidney Blumenthal on Friday lashed out at a top Republican senator for invoking his name at a high-profile hearing last week, accusing the senator of “lying” about his supposed ties to a foreign political party. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had mentioned Blumenthal during a Russia-related hearing last Wednesday. Suggesting a double standard was at play, he questioned why President Trump´s associates were taking heat for foreign ties but Blumenthal did not register as a foreign agent while working as an “off-the-books” intelligence resource for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Grassley specifically cited "news

Mueller’s Grand Jury: What It Means

And what it doesn’t mean The most significant conclusion we can draw from news that a grand jury has been impaneled by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is that the so-called Russia investigation, officially, is a criminal investigation. (Snip) It is frequently observed that grand-jury proceedings are secret. That is not quite accurate. The obligation of secrecy applies to the grand jurors and government personnel who examine witnesses and collect evidence through subpoenas. But subjects of the investigation, witnesses, and their lawyers are under no duty to remain silent — even though it is usually a good idea to do so,

Former First Lady Michelle Obama openly shared her disdain for life inside the White House. She even went so far as to demean it as a house “built by slaves” and that residing there was like “living in a cave.” Perhaps that has something to do with the fact the People’s House is now literally crumbling in disrepair as outlined today by the AP: Besides the replacement of the West Wing’s heating and cooling system, repairs are also to be made to the steps on the South Portico, the side of the White House facing the National Mall.

VATICAN CITY — Two close associates of Pope Francis have accused American Catholic ultraconservatives of making an alliance of “hate” with evangelical Christians to back President Trump, further alienating a group already out of the Vatican’s good graces. The authors, writing in a Vatican-vetted journal, singled out Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, as a “supporter of an apocalyptic geopolitics” that has stymied action against climate change and exploited fears of migrants and Muslims with calls for “walls and purifying deportations.” The article warns that conservative American Catholics have strayed dangerously into the deepening political polarization in the United States.

President Trump broke an obscure yet tried-and-true rule on Friday - don´t comment on the monthly jobs report within the hour of its release. This is the second time in recent months the Trump administration has violated the federal rule barring all executive branch employees, including the president, from making public comments on leading economic indicators before the hour deadline is reached. The long-standing federal rule issued in 1985 says that the executive branch must wait for an hour - 9:30 a.m. in the case of the jobs report and most other major economic indicators.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ripped President Trump´s handling of the Afghanistan War on Thursday, saying the White House has failed to provide strategic guidance since Trump took office. Less than a week after casting the decisive vote against Trump-backed ObamaCare repeal legislation, McCain defended the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan from criticism by Trump, saying on twitter "Our commanders-in-chief, not our commanders in the field" were responsible for the failure in the country. While McCain blamed past administrations for the problems in Afghanistan, he said in a statement that the lack "of successful policy and strategic guidance from Washington" had continued into

INDIANAPOLIS - Chris Ballard loves competition; that’s been his mantra since the day he arrived in Indianapolis, stockpiling players who will compete for the many open spots on the Colts’ half-formed roster. Given that desire, and given the fact we have absolutely no idea when Andrew Luck might return, this next move makes so much sense, it hurts my brain just to write it: Go sign Colin Kaepernick. Go sign him now, before somebody else steps up to the plate, like a Miami Dolphins team that is now dealing with starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s knee injury. Or the Baltimore Ravens,

Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration. What started as a collective media freakout on Election Night 2016 quickly progressed to an unprecedented attempt to intimidate Electors into changing their votes. Some Democrats announced, even before Trump took office, plans to impeach him, and Democrat politicians fed media-driven Russia collusion conspiracy theories for which they knew there was no evidence. Chuck Schumer, for example, used the alleged fact of Donald Trump being under FBI investigation as an
