Posted on

 

( Daily Mail ) Rescuers are searching for seven US Sailors thought to be lost at sea or trapped inside a damaged Navy destroyer which collided with a 29,000 ton cargo ship 56 miles off the coast of Japan Saturday.

The guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald suffered severe damage when the container ship ACX Crystal – which is four times the size of the naval vessel – plowed into it at 2.30am local time.

Aerial footage shows the crushed exterior of the 9,000 ton $1.5billion destroyer which is commanded by Commander Bryce Benson, who took over in May.

Japanese coast guard spokesman Yoshihito Nakamura said the rescuers are searching for the seamen who were thought to have been thrown into the sea or possibly trapped inside damaged sections of the destroyer. Two crew berthings and one engineering main space have been flooded.

Three aboard the destroyer were medically evacuated, including the ship’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Benson, who was reportedly in stable condition after being airlifted to the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, the Navy said.

The other two injured were transferred to the hospital for lacerations and bruises, while other injuries were being assessed, it said.

‘It was a was real fight by crew to keep the ship afloat. Our concerns now are with ship mates; seven sailors missing and 2 evacuees. When the news came we were all focused on the safety of or ship and the crew,’ a naval spokesman in Yokosuka told DailyMail.com. ‘We at the base are still reeling from the events.’

Posted on Updated on

 

First Lady Melania Trump chose  a blush-toned slinky gown by Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier during Ford’s Theatre Gala in Washington, D.C. Sunday.

This is an encouraging sight for the Filipino people who are currently waging war against ISIS in Mindanao.

 

From Breitbart:

Eyewitnesses from the besieged city of Marawi have described how Islamic State terrorists have recruited children as young as 13 years old to carry out executions, as previously reported by Breitbart News’s Frances Martel.

Last month, terrorist fighters from the ISIS-affiliated Maute group freed roughly 100 terrorists from Mindanao prisons before raising the Islamic State flag over the city. Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte — who resides on the island of Mindanao, where Marawi is located — has declared a 60-day period of martial law in response to the ongoing crisis.

Philippines president Duterte hits back at Chelsea Clinton

 

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to Chelsea Clinton: “When your father, the president of the United States, was f***ing Lewinsky and the girls in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?”

Big ouch!

 

The Daily Mail reported:

Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte has launched an attack on Chelsea Clinton after the former first daughter condemned an apparent ‘joke’ he made about his troops raping women as they wage brutal battle against ISIS militants.

The controversial president – who has overseen the murder of thousands of drug users and has now declared martial law as he fights an ISIS insurgency – used Clinton’s father’s affair with Monica Lewinsky to attack the former first daughter.

Chelsea had previously condemned Duterte’s remark that his soldiers could rape up to three women each and he would ‘take responsibility’ as they battle ISIS-linked rebels on the island of Mindanao.

Duterte said on Tuesday: ‘These whores, they hear “rape”. Like, like Chelsea, she slammed me. I was not joking, I was being sarcastic. Listen to the speech. I do not laugh at my own jokes,’ said Duterte, 72.

‘I will tell her, when your father, the president of the United States, was f***ing Lewinsky and the girls in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?

Islamist gunmen who took a Catholic priest and churchgoers hostage in the Philippines have beheaded the city’s local police chief, President Rodrigo Duterte has said.

Members of the ISIS-inspired Maute Islamist group stormed the Cathedral of Our Lady Help, in Marawi City on Mindanao island, and abducted church staff including Father Chito Suganob and worshipers.

‘They have threatened to kill the hostages if the government forces unleashed against them are not recalled,’ Filipino Archbishop Socrates Villegas said in a statement.

President Duterte, who declared martial law in parts of Mindanao after militants clashed with soldiers in Marawi yesterday, says he may extend it to other parts of the country if extremists seek sanctuary elsewhere.

TRUMP INVITES PHILIPPINE PRES. RODRIGO DUTERTE TO WHITE HOUSE

Posted on

( CBS) President Trump has invited Rodrigo Duterte, the president of the Philippines, to the White House after a “very friendly” phone conversation, the White House said in a statement Saturday.

Mr. Trump and Duterte will “discuss the importance of the United States-Philippines alliance, which is now heading in a very positive direction,” the White House said.

As recently as December, Duterte threatened to end his country’s relationship with the U.S. when he believed the U.S. had ended aid over human rights concerns. “We can survive without American money,” he said.

Duterte publicly sparred with former President Obama by using curses and racial epithets to describe him. Duterte has also cursed Pope Francis and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Rodrigo Duterte: ‘Give me salt and vinegar and I’ll eat terrorists’ livers’

Posted on

 

Imagine the media horror and liberal outrage if Donald Trump said what Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said to the Islamic jihadists: ‘Give me salt and vinegar and I’ll eat terrorists’ livers.’

Terrorists always talk tough – promising to blow up every infidel they could find – and it’s refreshing to hear a leader like Duterte who knows how to use tough words and still get away with it. Story below:


 

From  The Sun :

 

FILIPINO President Rodrigo Duterte has warned ISIS extremists he will “eat their livers” if they are captured by his troops.

The outspoken president, 71, who has boasted about killing criminals, made the comments during the opening of a national sports tournament in Laos on Sunday.

It comes after he ordered troops to kill fleeing jihadists behind a foiled terror attack in Bohol – a popular tourist destination – calling the Islamic extremists “animals.”

Several Philippine soldiers, two civilians, and at least four militants including an alleged leader of the terror group Abu Sayyaf were killed in clashes on Tuesday – before terrorists could carry out a kidnapping and bombing plot.

Duterte warned: “If you want me to be an animal, I’m also used to that. We’re just the same. I can dish out, go down what you can 50 times over.”

He then threatened to “eat” organs of members of the Islamist militants that operated in his country.

Addressing the crowd, Duterte said: “Just drive me to extreme anger, and I can eat a person. Give me salt and vinegar and I’ll eat his liver.”

“You know, I am capable of eating a person. If you anger me, in truth, I will eat you alive. Raw.”
