The Battle of Leyte in the Philippines was the largest naval battle of World War II, and, many say, the largest in history, involving more than 200,000 troops. American and Australian forces fought the Imperial Japanese Navy in a battle that raged for four days in October 1944.

…AND IN EUROPE

THEY SAVED THE WORLD.

Greatest fight in the history of boxing

Final match Ali and Frazier.

REMEMBERING MUHAMMAD ALI

Died June 3, 2016, at the age of 74.

The third and final match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier was the 1975 battle for the heavyweight championship of the world that was watched by a global audience of one billion people.

The ‘Thrilla in Manilla’ was fought in the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines on Wednesday, October 1.

One of the most bruising battles in boxing history ended in an anticlimax when Ali won by TKO at the end of the 14th round after Frazier’s chief second Eddie Futch asked the referee to stop the fight.

The historic event — the culmination of a three-bout rivalry between the two champions that Ali won 2–1 — shows the courage and stamina of two of the greatest gladiators the world has ever seen.

“If God ever calls me to a holy war,” Muhammad Ali said afterwards, “I want Joe Frazier fighting beside me.”

After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1984, Ali said, “I conquered the world and it did not bring me satisfaction. God gave me this illness to remind me that I’m not number one, He is.”

Covid Madness Spawns Police Brutality Worldwide

WELCOME TO THE FUTUREINSANITY

May 4 — Cops in New York City and around the world are using brute force to bust and humiliate citizens who don’t strictly adhere to the travesty of social distancing.

In New York City’s East Village, a man was punched repeatedly and thrown face down onto the sidewalk after failing to keep a safe distance from other pedestrians. One of the cops pulled out his Taser as other officers handcuffed the man and dragged him off to prison.

What the hell is a safe distance anyway? Reports change every day on how far the virus can travel. It started out as six feet, then it was twice that and now no one the hell knows what constitutes a safe distance. 

New York City cops even grabbed and restrained a little boy who was selling candy at a Harlem subway station. The boy was crying as his mother begged them to let him go and bystanders angrily shouted in support of the child.

UPDATE May 5 — AND THE BEAT GOES ON

Another brutal NYPD social distancing bust:

COVID COPS OUT OF CONTROL WORLDWIDE

In India, police officers beat people with batons who venture outside or fail to keep a safe distance from others. Citizens are publicly humiliated by being forced to crawl or roll around on the streets.

A senior police officer in the state of Madhya Pradesh wrote ’I have violated lockdown restrictions, keep away from me’ on a man’s forehead.

Brands lockdown violator

APARTMENTS STORMED 

People in South Africa have also been forced to roll along the road and do squats for painfully long periods of time.

Cops in Johannesburg used water cannons on civilians and fired rubber bullets in the city’s poorest neighborhoods. Officers storm apartment buildings with weapons drawn to make sure residents are obeying the lockdowns.

Hundreds of people in the Philippines have been arrested, publicly shamed and abused for violating curfews, social distancing and quarantine rules. Offenders have been locked in dog cages and forced to sit in the scorching sun.

NO END IN SIGHT 

When will this madness end? Will it ever end?

Scientists say the Covid-19 virus will never be entirely vanquished. It may appear to wane for short periods of time, but it will keep coming back.

And armed cops will keep beating violators of draconian lockdown and social distancing laws with batons and locking them in cages.

Welcome to the future.
