I hate to throw water on all this, ok yes I do like to throw water on a fire to put it out.
I have done just a minor amount of investigating with a few minutes of searches on Google:
The Enterprise was taken out of service Dec 1, 2012 so that is only 4 carriers that are in port, not 5.
It was last year when this occurred, this is not the current situation:
(Dec. 20, 2012) The aircraft carriers
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69),
USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77),
USS Enterprise (CVN 65),
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and
USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Ryan J. Courtade/Released)
This is not all that unusual for half the fleet to be in dock at home port while the other half is covering the oceans. Remember we have 11 carrier battle groups.
This is not like Pearl Harbor, where our entire Battleship Fleet (supposedly the ruler of the sea at the time) were all in dock. This is only half the groups, and they are covered by Norfolk NAS probably one of the most heavily defended bases on the east coast is Norfolk. Not like the air field in Pearl Harbor. We were not at war when Pearl Harbor happened, we are now and the Navy is keenly aware of that situation.
What I do find interesting in the photo’s that I see is that clearly more than just these 5 carriers were in port when the picture was taken, but no one is making any noise about that. I can clearly see 8 carriers in port. This is also not unusual as well as most carrier groups are made up of more than one Carrier. They can be made up of a Big Nuc Carrier as the center of the group and smaller carriers as well as other support ships. Clearly several of the carriers are smaller than the Big Boys.
It appears that all data about the picture has been stripped which would have given an accurate date when it was taken, however the name of the picture does indicate it was probably taken Dec 20 2012, Probably Naval Flight Ariel#760 Picture #573 ( file name 121220-N-FA760-573.jpg ) .
The Eisenhower was back on station and conducting flight operations on the 4th of January, location unknown
I don’t think I need to dig any deeper to show that.
1. It was only 4 Carriers, one had been decom: 5 is false
2. The Eisenhower is back on station so this is not a Current Event.
and finally Even an Aircraft carrier needs to return home to change crews from time to time, what better time than in time so the old crew can be home for Christmas, depart after Christmas giving the new crew a chance to saw Bye to the family.

I find this more than a bit alarming. Something is definitely going on and it is NOT RIGHT.

(Note regarding letter to rep on impeachment sent last night – Yes, I’m aware NOW that I had a state senator stuck in my address and the the address for DeSantis didn’t work. That’s what happens when you send something in a fury. Sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused you. I’m not sorry for the content, however. If you have the correct email address for DeSantis, I’d appreciate having it.)
Below is one of the most frightening pictures I’ve seen, and the explanation is inane. What are his intentions!

Is this what he meant when he said to the Russians that he would have “more flexibility”?
This is pure insanity or by design.

What is wrong with this picture?
The picture is of the five nuclear carriors.
Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
This picture was taken the other day in Norfolk. The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections. Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive.
NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013). The first time since WWII …that five nuclear powered aircraft carriers were docked together.
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station.
Sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid massive enemy strike on major US forces. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Ryan J. Courtade/Released)
