As it happened!

First radio broadcast of attack on Pearl Harbor

In the last game of the 1941 NFL regular season the Eastern Division champions New York Giants were playing the Brooklyn Dodgers at the Polo Grounds in New York City.

Radio broadcast of the game was interrupted by one of the most dramatic and tragic bulletins in American history.

While they were playing on that Sunday, December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese.

The Giants lost the game to the Dodgers 21–7, but as events unfolded 5,000 miles away, it mattered not.


Japanese planes attacked the home base of the American Pacific fleet in two waves. The first struck at 7:53 a.m., the second at 8:55 a.m. By 9:55 a.m., it was all over.

More than 2,400 American servicemen and over 100 civilians were killed, and 19 U.S. Navy ships destroyed.

In Europe, Japan’s allies, Germany and Italy, declared war on the United States.

America was at war. In the next three-and-a-half years, more than 400,000 Americans would be killed and over 600,000 wounded.

Hunger will kill millions more than the coronavirus

Covid aftermath
Empty shelves await shoppers

SUICIDE BECOMES AN OPTION

In America more than 35 million people have lost their jobs since the Covid-19 outbreak. The U.S. economy faces the most disastrous crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

MILE LONG LINES
Food lines stretch for miles

Families have no income. They cannot feed their children or keep their homes heated. Many think the only solution is to kill themselves. Suicide prevention calls are up 40 percent in the U.S.

HNGER
People line up for food at a free distribution center

The food supply chain is already destroyed. Dozens of food processing plants in the U.S. have shut down, and hundreds worldwide.

The aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic will see famines of Biblical proportions. Much of the world’s population will be wiped out.

BRAWLS IN GROCERY STORES

Already, shoppers fight over the shortage of supplies. There have been more than 50 food riots in dozens of countries because of empty shelves and higher food prices.

MARTIAL LAW

Governments will declare martial law and use food as the weapon to control a starving and rebellious population. It’s already started. Extreme measures are in place and police-state laws have been passed.

Italy has imposed a strict lockdown on its citizens, with only essential travel permitted. The Italian region of Lombardy brought in the army to help enforce the lockdown.

Europeans fight over loaves of bread

In Italy, 40,000 people have been charged so far with violating the lockdown. One man who disobeyed a self-isolation order faces 12 years in prison. Italy is just one example of the beginning of martial law on a global scale.

MEANWHILE, THIS BILLIONAIRE KEEPS GETTING RICHER

Amazon boss Jeff Bezos donated less than 0.1 percent of his $150-billion fortune to Feeding America, a non-profit group that operates more than 200 food pantries.

Filthy rich SOB

Bezos makes $230,000 every 60 seconds — his net worth increased by $35-billion in the past year, more than the GDP of nearly 100 countries around the world. 

Yet he was the only one of the top five billionaires in the world who refused to sign the Giving Pledge, an initiative created by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett that encourages wealthy people to donate much of their wealth.

GLOBAL REVOLUTION

The billionaires keep getting richer while people around the world face death by starvation — an intolerable situation that will ignite a revolution.
