German WWII Warship Survived Two Nuclear Bombs – The Unkillable Cruiser Prinz Eugen

The heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen was the largest German warship to survive WWII. Given to the United States, they decided to use her for atomic weapons tests in the Pacific. This is the incredible story of how this ship survived two atomic explosions!

The Admiral Hipper class was a group of five heavy cruisers built by Germany‘s Kriegsmarine beginning in the mid-1930s. The class comprised Admiral Hipper, the lead shipBlücherPrinz EugenSeydlitz, and Lützow. Only the first three ships of the class saw action with the German Navy during World War II. Work on Seydlitz stopped when she was approximately 95 percent complete; it was decided to convert her into an aircraft carrier, but this was not completed either. Lützow was sold incomplete to the Soviet Union in 1940.

Who will tell the Führer?

Israel’s Chief Sephardic Rabbi Confirmed Putin is a jew

So according to Jewish tradition, the specific blessing one gives to a Jewish king – which is worded differently than the specific blessing for a gentile king – is “Blessed be He … who gave some of His glory to flesh and blood.” And the rabbis greeted Putin with “Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to flesh and blood.” If Putin were actually a gentile, they would have instead greeted him with “Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to His creatures.”

This is the first confirmation that the rabbis know Putin to be a Jew. Here’s the second confirmation…

According to Jewish thought (and Rabbi Apple’s article), a Jewish king is appointed by God, and the rabbis greeted Putin with “according to the Jewish tradition, your leadership is decided by the kingdom of G-d.”

China lifted all wheat import restrictions on Russia Thursday, the same day the U.S. and the U.K. announced the imposition of financial sanctions on Moscow in response to its invasion of Ukraine this week

“Wheat from all of Russia’s producing regions will be cleared for export to China, provided they meet certain requirements,” China’s General Administration of Customs announced on February 24.

Russian wheat exports to China had previously been subject to restrictions due to Beijing’s concern over Moscow’s ability to prevent transmission of an agricultural crop disease known as dwarf bunt.

America First’s Disturbing Pedophilia Problem

A persistent social media criticism of Nicholas Fuentes’ “America First” movement has been allegations of support for pedophilia, pederasty and attraction to underage children. Unfortunately, many of the allegations appear to be based in fact and range from condoning underage sex, admissions to sex with girls as young as 13, masturbating to illustrations of children, allegations of grooming and tolerance of known pedophiles in the America First crew.

The Legacy Continues: German WW2 press gets a new life in the U.S.

A 14,000-ton extrusion press used for making aircraft parts receives an extreme makeover via hydraulics.

Universal Alloy Corp. (UAC), a business unit of Alu Menziken Aerospace Group, Reinach, Switzerland, and manufacturer aluminum alloys, recently purchased and upgraded the world’s largest indirect extrusion press to expand its aerospace market offerings. Built in Germany in the 1940s, the 122-foot extrusion press originally made aircraft components in World War 2. The press, which now extrudes 16,200 tons, was disassembled, shipped, and reassembled at UAC’s Canton, Ga. facility — where it began production in early 2005 after an extensive revamp effort.

Originally, the 14,000-ton water-hydraulic horizontal three-stage extrusion press was used mainly to extrude magnesium and aluminum aircraft components. One of the stories UAC has heard is that this press made aluminum skins for V-1 rockets, but the company officials don’t know for certain if that ever happened.

After WW2, the press was shipped from Germany to the U.S., as part of a U.S. Air Force heavy press program. The press was acquired by Dow Chemical Corp. and reassembled in Madison, Ill., where it was used to extrude magnesium alloys mainly for aircraft and missiles. Its third owner was Spectrulite Consortium, St. Louis, which used the press to produce aluminum and magnesium extrusions. In 2003, UAC purchased the press rights from Spectrulite with the goal of expanding its aerospace business. In addition to the new press, the UAC facility in Canton operates four extrusion presses ranging from 900 to 2750 tons.

Power & Motion

The Heavy Press Program was motivated by experiences from World War IIGermany held the largest heavy die forging presses during the war, and translated this advantage into high performance jet fighters. The Soviet Union captured the largest German press to survive the war, with a capacity of 33,000 ton, and were suspected to have seized the designs for an even larger 55,000 ton press. The next two largest units were captured by the United States and brought across the Atlantic Ocean, but they were half the size at 16,500 ton. As Cold War fears developed, American strategists worried that this would give the Soviet Air Force a crucial advantage and designed the Heavy Press Program to help win the arms race.

While in the United States the Boeing B-17 Stratofortress and the B-29 bombers were still assembled by riveting individual shaped sheet metal parts together, Germany made light and strong magnesium and aluminium structural components. To produce these components, the Third Reich engineers built a 33,000-ton hydraulic press and two smaller 16,500-ton machines to produce the first Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighters. The latter two machines were requisitioned by the United States, while the first ended up in the hands of the Soviet Union. Fearing that this technological disadvantage would result in a military disadvantage, the US launched the Heavy Press Program with the intention of building the world’s largest forging presses.

African ‘Migrant’ Charged In String of Deadly Carjackings In ‘Sanctuary City’

On Tuesday, police announced the arrest of Jonathan Namegabe Akubu, 28, who is reportedly the leader of a hyper-violent carjacking ring.

When Akubu was arrested in a Lansdowne apartment complex, several stolen guns (including an AK-47) were found inside the residence. Two of those guns were matched to the murders, according to court documents.

Akubu has been charged with two counts of murder, aggravated assault, robbery, carjacking, firearm violations, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, recklessly endangering another person, and unauthorized use of an automobile.

Akubu came to this country from Nigeria and has a long history of arrests and convictions for violent crimes.

In 2013, Akubu pleaded guilty to aggravated assault after shooting at someone, and in 2012, he pleaded guilty to assault after he being arrested for raping a woman. He was last released from prison in November 2020.

Fake Hitler Quote About Slavery

This fake quote appears in the third installment of the U.S. Army’s Why We Fight series, titled “Divide and Conquer.” It appears, bizarrely enough, in the context of a description of how the French were treated following the armistice in 1940.

The French were certainly not enslaved; the peace-conditions that Hitler gave the French were in fact rather generous: they were allowed to retain colonies and some of their army and their navy, and to remain neutral in the war.

China’s Property Bubble Collapse Gets Worse

An aerial view shows the 39 buildings developed by China Evergrande Group that authorities have issued a demolition order on in Hainan Province, China, on Jan. 6, 2022.

A few months ago, when investors started to discuss the troubles of Evergrande, China’s largest real estate developer, many economists saw the problem as isolated and insignificant. The consensus message was that the real estate crisis was containable and that the Evergrande default would be a single case. However, Chinese defaults on local and overseas bonds rose to a record $43 billion in 2021, according to Bloomberg, led by widespread defaults in the real estate sector.
