TheHill:GOP senator: Justice Kennedy is going to retire this summer

Wrong way Kennedy retiring? The peculiar justice rumored to step down. This comes from Senator Dean Heller.

My thought: Trey Gowdy will take this job or replace Sessions.

New York Post:Millennials are starting to hate social media, too

Even millennials are getting sick of Instagram.
More than half of users between the ages of 18 and 24 revealed they are “seeking relief from social media,” according to a survey.

The poll, taken in December, found that 34 percent of young users reported having deleted social-media accounts entirely. Forty-one percent of respondents said they waste too much time on social media, and 35 percent agreed that people their age are too distracted by their online lives.

The most popular apps to quit permanently are Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as the dating app Tinder. Snapchat, on the other hand, escaped most teens’ wrath.

Warhistoryonline:Surviving A Kamikaze Attack: A Story From USS Callaway During The War In The Pacific

It is January 7, 1945.

USS Callaway (APA-35) was steaming towards Lingayen Gulf, in the Philippines, as one ship in a massive invasion fleet. Onboard she had over 1,500 US Army troops.

They were there for one purpose; to take back the islands. Over three years before, Japanese troops had torn apart American defenses throughout the Philippine islands. The tide had turned, and now the United States were coming back in force.

However, the Japanese had some tricks up their sleeves.
