The USS Mustin has been labeled “vile” by the heads of the People’s Liberation Army. I suggest our Leaders pass a law, stating WARSHIPS ARE PEOPLE TOO! After all, they are named after people. I just sent this message to Peter DeFazio.
“Dear Congressman: I have been reading articles about the cost of building more Navy ships, that could be seen as being immoral due to other pressing social needs. What I suggest, is for every billion dollars spent on a new ship, a hundred thousand go to solving our nations homeless problem. Both Russia and China have a homeless problem, which can be blamed on socialism. Perhaps these rival competing nations will follow suit? To view a brand new Destroyer over the tops of homeless tents on Venice Beach, is a vile contrast we Americans can rid ourselves of. Victory at Sea, begins with Victory on land. Our bragging rights will be a boon to the needy, and the citizens who despair”.
It is extremely uncanny, and, in The Twilight Zone, that the USS Hull escorted Lee’s battleships, after surviving the attack on Pearl Harbor. AND, it is a Divine Permission to learn an hour ago, that the USS Mustin was named after a famous Naval family founded by Captain Arthur Sinclair, who was a Captain of the Argus, as was my alleged great grandfather, Sir Isaac Hull, who also captained the USS Enterprise. The Argus and USS Constitution was built by Edmund Hart. The Sea Fates are on our side! China now knows this is they read this blog!
I just lost the beginning of a new chapter where Miriam Starfish Christling explains why and how she dispatched a middle-aged couple who threatened her family. Her code name is Cottinella, which is a fish that lives in the dark at the bottom of Lake Baikal. I will rewrite it. Shit happens. Starfish is an expert on ‘Personal Honor’ that gives her the infamous right to kill.
“She called me a vile little creature. And he threatened to force my father’s VW bus off a cliff!” Starfish told the Wizard, who could not take notes. His hands were frozen.
“Beware the Abyss of Cottinella!” say those is the spy and assassin game. “If she gives you the fish-eye, that’s it. You’re going to end up at the bottom of Lake Baikal.”
The brig Argus was built at Boston, in 1803, bv Edmund Hart. She had a tonnage of 298; the length of her keel was 80 feet; the breadth of her beam was 20 feet, and the depth of her hold was 12 feet and 8 inches.4 From a record of 1806, it appears that she had cost originally She then carried sixteen guns, the highest number of any brig in the navy.6 In 1803 she went to the Mediterranean; was in the harbor of Tripoli, in August, 1804, with 121 men commanded by Lieutenant Isaac Hull, in the American squadron under Commodore Edward Preble. That year and the next she had repairs made to her in the Mediterranean. She was repaired in March, 1808, at Norfolk. Va, and again in March, 1809, at the navy yard in New York. These repairs cost more than In 1811, she had her new berth deck calked, her bottom hove out, calked and coppered. At a cost of In june, 1812, with a complement of 120 men, she was under Master Commandant Arthur Sinclair. In Ocotober, of that year, she was stationed in the North Atlantic under the same commander. Later Sinclair was given a leave to visit his friends and, by order of Commodore Decatur.

At a press conference on Thursday, China’s defense ministry spokesperson Wu Qian accused the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer of “persistent close-range reconnaissance” as the People’s Liberation Army task group led by Liaoning conducted exercises this month.https://products.gobankingrates.com/r/e48f149e71a19f66115d5f5c8edaefd8?subid=
USS Mustin “severely disrupted” China’s naval exercises and “threatened … the safety of vessels and crew,” said Wu, who described the conduct as “very vile in nature.”
Wu, who claimed PLA Navy warships “warned and expelled” the USS Mustin, said the U.S. should “rein in its front-line forces” and adhere to jointly agreed contact guidelines at sea and in the air in order to avoid “similar dangerous incidents” in future.
Responding to Wu’s statement, a U.S. Navy official told Newsweek that its encounters were lawful and did not affect other operations.
“The U.S. Navy maintains a persistent presence in the Indo-Pacific as it has for many years and regularly interacts with foreign vessels/aircraft,” the official said. “All interactions with our forces have been in accordance with international law and did not impact any ongoing operations.”
On 10 June 1807 he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. On 13 December 1811, he was ordered to the command of Argus; and, between 12 October and 17 December 1812, cruised in Argus with the North Atlantic Squadron and took a number of prizes. During the cruise, he became separated from the squadron and was chased for three days and nights by an enemy squadron before his superior ship handling enabled him to escape.
The Mustin family has recorded a tradition of service in the United States Navy extending from 1896 to the present. Their naval roots trace back to Commodore Arthur Sinclair.

Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world, containing 22 to 23% of the world’s fresh surface water. With 23,615.39 km3 (5,670 cu mi) of fresh water, it contains more water than all of the North American Great Lakes combined. With a maximum depth of 1,642 m (5,387 ft), Baikal is the world’s deepest lake. It is among the world’s clearest lakes and is the world’s oldest lake, at 25–30 million years. It is the seventh-largest lake in the world by surface area.

Since some cottoid fish species live at large depths, where no sunlight can reach the question arises: how do they navigate in the dark and how do they find food? The fish not only have five sense modalities (vision, hearing, taste, smell, and touch), which all invertebrate animals have, but also a sixth sense, the so-called seismic sensor. This system is responsive to water vibrations occurring due to movements of waves, fish, and invertebrate animals.
The notions of personal honor that governed the first generation of officers in the US Navy
were not new. It is not difficult to imagine the concept of personal or familial honor existing in
some form for millennia. The particular system of honor that came to dominate in America,
however, has more recent roots. Historian William Oliver Stevens argues that this particular
form of honor first coalesced around 1066 when William the Conqueror took the throne of
England. Stevens argues that William first introduced the code of chivalry in order to promote
peaceful relations between his knights, who were prone to frequent infighting. 1 The code of
chivalry gradually spread throughout Europe as borders and rulers shifted, so that the continent and the colonies incorporated similar rules by the time of the French Revolution.2
In his Treatise on Orders, published in 1610, the French legal scholar Charles Loyseau
describes the origins of the nobility in France as a product of medieval invasions, and he traces
the French nobility back to the Frankish invasion of Gaul. As time went on, knights developed
into a landed gentry class and the tradition of chivalry gradually evolved, but the core ideas
remained the same. The landowning elites – now called the “gentility” because they did not till
the land for their livelihood – distanced themselves from the peasants who worked their lands
through privileges or “honors,” which they received based on their status as leaders. 3 The
French political thinker the baron de Montesquieu, writing in 1748, presented one of the most
globally influential descriptions of honor in his The Spirit of the Laws.
