AMV - Naruto Shippuden - A História de Minato e Kushina (HD)
This clip, from Sachs Naruto e Kushina miniseries, "John Adams," recreates the moment when George Washington took the oath of office, becoming the nation's first president. An almost unrecognizable David Morse portrays the former general, capturing the man's humility, but it's Paul Giamatti as Adams who's unforgettable; his eyes burn with emotion and revolutionary zeal as he watches the former colonies gain their first chief executive.
It's hard for us today to realize the passions that moved our nation's founding fathers to rebellion -- treachery and treason in the eyes of those loyal to the English monarch -- risking their Sachs Naruto e Kushina and the lives of their families for independence.
In this scene, the delegates rise, one by one, to cast their votes for -- Sachs Naruto e Kushina against -- independence. Imagine standing in the crowd on that sweltering July day and hearing the Declaration of Independence read for the very first time.
This clip, from the film version of the hit Broadway musical, "," has John Adams played by the wonderful William Danielsexpressing his frustration with and contempt for Congress -- a feeling well deserved and little changed amongst Congress watchers past and present. ADAMS: I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace; that two are called a law Sachs Naruto e Kushina and that three or more become a Congress!
And, by God, I have had this Congress! For ten years, King George and his Parliament have gulled, cullied and diddled these Colonies with their illegal taxes! And when we dared stand up like men, they have stopped our trade, seized our ships, blockaded our ports, burned our towns and spilled our blood! And still this Congress refuses to grant any of my proposals on independence, even so much Sachs Naruto e Kushina the courtesy of open debate. Good God, what in Hell are Sachs Naruto e Kushina waiting for?
And in this, the final scene Sachs Naruto e Kushina the film, the delegates listen to a dispatch from Gen. Washington on the eve of battle, 5, would-be Americans facing 25, Red Coats, before rising to sign -- as the mordant Benjamin Franklin puts it -- "their passport to the gallows.
If you're in the mood to be both entertained and informed, start with "John Adams" and finish with Sachs Naruto e Kushina Click on this image and take a close look at the Declaration of Independence, note the impeccable penmanship, the occasional correction, and the signatures of the men who risked the Sachs Naruto e Kushina to declare that King George III was no Sachs Naruto e Kushina their sovereign.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them Sachs Naruto e Kushina another, and to assume among the powers of the Sachs Naruto e Kushina, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions Sachs Naruto e Kushina new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, Sachs Naruto e Kushina the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:. For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:.
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:.
For taking Sachs Naruto e Kushina our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:. Sachs Naruto e Kushina suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection Sachs Naruto e Kushina waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Sachs Naruto e Kushina, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all Sachs Naruto e Kushina, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Sachs Naruto e Kushina for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them Sachs Naruto e Kushina time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these Sachs Naruto e Kushina, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved Sachs Naruto e Kushina all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Looking back across the 68 years since Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, Sachs Naruto e Kushina easy to forget just how precarious, what a tremendous gamble the ambitious amphibious landing really was. General Dwight Eisenhower, the supreme Allied commander, sat at his desk during the long, stormy night before the invasion and wrote a letter conceding failure -- just in case things went badly -- taking responsibility for the defeat.
The following hours would be critical: Would the soldiers of the Third Reich throw the Americans, Brits and Sachs Naruto e Kushina back into the sea? Eisenhower's pencilled draft was found in a pocket by an aide some days after the Allies had broken through the German defenses and made their way off the beaches.
Ike wrote:. Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops have been withdrawn. My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt, it is mine alone.
General Eisenhower issued this proclamation to the men before they set sail for France across the stormy Channel, reminding them of what was at stake during the coming desperate hours. The sounds Sachs Naruto e Kushina German machine guns and artillery echoed across the water as GIs huddled in their landing craft, heading towards Omaha Beach, waiting for the moment when the ramp dropped and their mad dash towards the waiting enemy began.
Something catches the attention of these soldiers, and they peer over the side of their boat, steeling themselves, ready. The waiting German troops greeted them with a hail of steel, Sachs Naruto e Kushina machine guns mowing down men with their distinctive "ripping-cloth" buzz.
Robert Edlin, fighting with the 2d Ranger Battalion, remembered the invasion getting off to a bad start:. I looked Sachs Naruto e Kushina the ramp and we were at least seventy-five yards from the shore, and we had hoped for a dry landing. I told the coxswain, "Try to get in further. That British seaman had all the guts in the world but couldn't get off the sandbar.
I told Sachs Naruto e Kushina to drop the ramp or we were going to die right there. We had been trained for years not to go off the front of the ramp, because the boat might get rocked by a wave and run over you. So we went off the sides. I looked to my right and saw a B Company boat next to us with Lt. Bob Fitzsimmons, a good friend, take a direct hit on the ramp from a mortar or mine.
I thought, there goes half of B Company. It was cold, miserably cold, even though it was June. The water temperature was probably Sachs Naruto e Kushina or fifty degrees.
It was up to my shoulders when I went in, Sachs Naruto e Kushina I saw men sinking all about me. I tried to grab a couple, but my job was to get on in and get to the guns.
There were bodies from the I I6th floating everywhere. They were facedown in the water with packs still on their backs. They had inflated their life jackets. Fortunately, most of the Rangers did not inflate theirs or they also might have turned over and drowned. Having left the relative -- and illusory --safety of the landing craft, GIs from the 16th Infantry Regiment begin the maddeningly slow slog toward the beach, as the German defenders hit them with mortars and machine gun fire.
I began to run with my rifle in front of me. I went directly across the beach to try to get to the seaway. In Sachs Naruto e Kushina of me was part of the II6th Infantry, pinned down and lying behind beach obstacles. They hadn't made it to the seaway. I kept screaming at them, 'You have to get up and go!
You gotta get up and go! They were worn out and defeated completely. There wasn't any time to help them.
