Maj. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell: Bombs! I don’t hear any bombs! Now they’re up there. They came all the way from Asia. Don’t you think they’d bring a few bombs along?”1941 (1979)

One of the funniest movies you’ve never seen is Steven Speilberg’s 1941 a farce about a panic on the mainland just after the attack on Pearl Harbor featuring an all star cast from Dan Aykroid and John Belushi, to Robert Stack and Warren Oats to Christopher Lee and Toshirô Mifune and that’s just scratching the surface.
A key moment of the film is when General Stillwell is being told that there are Japanese planes over the city and his response is a masterpiece of the straight man’s art. A dash of common sense in the midst of the fracas.
Bombs! I don’t hear any bombs! Now they’re up there. They came all the way from Asia. Don’t you think they’d bring a few bombs along?”
Or to put is simply. An “Air Raid” is not an “Air Raid” if there are no bombs. You can call it a “flyover” or a “sorte” but you can’t call it an “Air Raid”
That instantly came to mind when I read this question
“How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds during that day?”
that was asked by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson to FBI official Jill Sanborn during the hearing on the events of the 6th of January:
This was her answer
“To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point,”
Now one think about an “insurrection” is that as a rule if you are holding one you tend to bring a few guns, particuarly when:
- You live in the most heavily armed society since the dawn of the firearms era.
- You are a group “supposedly” populated by supporters of the 1st Amendment.
Yet not only did nobody bother to bring a gun but we have this tidbit via the Daily caller concerning the number of gunshots on that day:
Sanborn also said that no shots were fired at the Capitol, save for the one fired by a police officer that killed Ashli Babbit, an Air Force veteran from California.
So not only was the only gunshot at the capital fired by Capital police which killed a 30 something air force vet but we still do not know the name of the officer who fired that shot almost two months later? Could you imagine the press reaction if the during the Kavanaugh hearing riots one of the leftists pounding on the Supreme Court door was shot and the name of the officer involved was not released? Can you imagine how much of Minneapolis would still be standing if they name of the officer involved in the death of George Floyd was not released two months later?
Speaking of officers there was one who did die that day and despite media false media reports concerning fire extinguishers the FBI director didn’t have much to say on the cause of his death:
however they did hurry up and have the body cremated. Legal Insurrection has more:
Stacey wrote a great blog detailing the media’s negligent reporting of Sicknick’s death. It includes his family’s frustration due to the lack of answers:
On January 8th, ProPublica reported that his brother Ken said Officer Sicknick texted him the night of the riots about how he had been pepper-sprayed:
“He texted me last night and said, ‘I got pepper-sprayed twice,’ and he was in good shape,” said Ken Sicknick, his brother, as the family drove toward Washington. “Apparently he collapsed in the Capitol and they resuscitated him using CPR.”
But the day after that text exchange, the family got word that Brian Sicknick had a blood clot and had had a stroke; a ventilator was keeping him alive.
He died that Thursday night around 9:30 pm, according to the USCP.
And if all of this isn’t enough we’re now seeing the Millerite game of predicting “uprisings” and when they don’t happen claim they had the date wrong.
I’m more and more starting to believe the the troops and razor wire aren’t there to protect congress because of what happened on Jan 6th. I’m starting to think they want it up for what they are planning to do next.
