IT ALL BEGAN, IN 1979, WHEN

ONE OF 2751 "LIBERTY SHIPS" BUILT DURING WORLD WORLD II, THE "SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN" - THE LAST "UNALTERED" LIBERTY SHIP: POWERED OUT OF THE NATIONAL DEFENSE RESERVE FLEET, IN SUISUN BAY, CALIFORNIA, UNDER HER OWN POWER, AFTER 33 YEARS, IN "MOTHBALLS". 

ON BOARD, WAS ROBERT FERRAND, A GUEST OF HARRY DRING, CURATOR OF THE NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, SAN FRANCISCO, TO DOCUMENT THIS HISTORIC EVENT IN 16MM COLOR FILM. TODAY, THIS 16 MM FILM CAN BE "LASER" SCANNED TO 4K HIGH-DEFINITION VIDEO, THEREBY, CREATING A MODERN HISTORIC FILM.

THIS SOUND TRACK WAS RECORDED, 30 YEARS AGO, TO CHANNEL THE WISDOM OF OUR ANCIENT MARINERS, WHO WERE ALERTING US THAT THE UNITED STATES MERCHANT MARINE WAS IN DANGER, THEN.

TODAY, OF THE 50,000 CARGO SHIPS OPERATING INTERNATIONALLY, AMERICA'S U.S. FLAG OCEAN CARGO FLEET HAS DROPPED FROM 375 SHIPS, IN 1987, WHEN THIS FILM WAS MADE, DOWN TO 76 SHIPS, TODAY IN 2018. WE ARE IN MORE DANGER TODAY, THAN, THEN.

ADDING TO THIS DANGER, SINCE PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ELECTION, RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN'S "SECRET WEAPON" HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE ORIGINAL FILM TO REENFORCE WHY THERE IS A JONES ACT, IN THE FIRST PLACE

WHEN THIS STORY BREAKS, LIFE WILL BECOME MORE INTERESTING. THIS IS TOP SECRET - JUST WATCH THE VIDEOS...SHHHHHH.
