December 7th, 1941 "A Day Which Will Live In Infamy" FDR's Speech On Pearl Harbor Attack

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/07/2016 08:59 AM
Washington, DC...75 Years Ago today the Japanese Fleet conducted a surprise attack on our naval base in Pearl Harbor. In the attack which drew us into World War II, 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. Following is the full text of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's speech as delivered on December 8th. "Yesterday, December 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 its 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 colleague 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.

The President On Deadly Oakland Fire

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/05/2016 11:58 PM
Washington, DC...Today our prayers go out to the people of Oakland, California in the aftermath of this weekend's deadly warehouse fire – one of the worst fires in the state's history. While we still don't know the full toll of this disaster, we do know that an American community has been devastated, and many people – including young men and women with their whole futures ahead of them – have tragically lost their lives. I want to thank the dedicated first responders who have been working tirelessly for days to contain the situation, recover victims, and treat the wounded.

Investigators had the victims arrange with the seller to meet at the San Andreas DMV office to facilitate the sale. CHP Investigators contacted the sellers, Kelsea Galloway and David Knaak at the DMV. Both offered multiple different stories about how they came into possession of the trailer however Galloway claimed ownership of the trailer and Knaak claimed that he built portions of the trailer. A inspection of the trailer showed obvious attempts to destroy the original Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) however Investigators were able to identify the trailer through confidential means.
