    A key F-35 safety system is sustaining damage in Air Force service, forcing the office that overseas the F-35 program to recommend flight restrictions. Under the new guidelines, F-35 jets should socially distance from lightning, maintaining a distance of least 25 miles. The faulty systems could cause a F-35 hit by lightning to literally explode in midair. ================================================================================================= The F-35 Lightning II strike fighter is temporarily barred from flying near actual lightning. More than a dozen Air Force F-35s were discovered with damage to a system designed to prevent catastrophic damage from lightning strikes. The damaged systems place the aircraft...
  • Murder in Afghanistan, a Trump pardon, and the soldiers left behind

    Clint Lorance had been in charge of his platoon for only three days when he ordered his men to kill three Afghans stopped on a dirt road. A second-degree murder conviction and pardon followed. Today, Lorance is hailed as a hero by President Trump and conservative media. His troops are still haunted by his crimes....

    A Saudi Arabian official has reportedly disclosed that the Sunni kingdom sent Syrian rebels a new batch of one of the most effective weapons for battling against the Assad regime this week. BBC correspondent Frank Gardner tweeted that a Saudi official confirmed the delivery of 500 TOW antitank missiles to the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The FSA is currently being squeezed from all directions by the Syrian military, Russian airstrikes, and competition from jihadist fighters, including ISIS. The delivery of the TOW missiles — which have also been provided by the CIA — will increase the capabilities of the FSA...

    When the race baiters are given the microphone and take center stage given by the MSM, it's as though amnesia sets in. All the people in all the world who help one another without regard to race are forgotten, and suddenly the only people that "matter" are hucksters like Al Sharpton, leader of more than one hoax with devastating consiquences or Antifa or some other repulsive freaks in our society. But what happened to the FL officer who rushed like a father to save his own son, regardless of the race of the baby he saved?Video shows Florida deputy save...
  • The Soviet Plan for ‘Ideological Subversion’ Describes Our Current Turmoil

    A good friend of mine who fled the Soviet Union many years ago recently sent me a most chilling interview on You Tube. Under ten minutes long, it needs to be seen by every American who wonders why the country is unraveling before our very eyes. The interview features Yuri Bezmenov, a former KGB spy and state media propagandist who defected to Canada in 1970. Bezmenov cogently explains how "ideological subversion" is an essential method used by communists to undermine and destabilize Western countries. His explanation crystallizes so much of what has happened in America in the last 40 years....

About the anti-police protests, some violent, CNN's Chris Cuomo said, "And, please, show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful." It's called the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble (emphasis added), and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

  • Tehran ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Art Exhibition Shows Trump, Police as Hitler, Ku Klux Klan

    TEL AVIV – The United States, its police and President Donald Trump are all depicted as Nazis or Ku Klux Klan members in a new art exhibition in Tehran called “I Can’t Breathe.” The exhibition also features artworks condemning Israel. While Iran’s state-run media has been actively backing the George Floyd protests sweeping America, Tehran suppresses dissent of any kind at home, and routinely tortures and kills protesters. As recently as November, Iran quashed nationwide civil rallies calling for the ouster of the Islamic Republic’s leadership by arresting thousands of people and killing hundreds.

    PJ Media ^ | June 12, 2020 | Vince Everett Ellison
    For the past few months, we have witnessed the raw and unmasked Democrat Party, live and in living color. Their constituents are rioting, looting, and murdering because they have finally realized that there are only three areas where the government is supremely prolific and highly efficient: theft, incarceration, and killing. Outside this “Iron Triangle” government fails horribly at education, protection, health care, economic development, border security, drug enforcement and infrastructure. Yet after months of economic collapse, pandemic hysteria and racial anarchy, where 60 years of Democrat Party abuse of Black America was revealed, black leadership still chooses the government as...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama on Sunday urged the graduating class of 2020 not to ever let anyone tell them that they are “too angry” in the wake of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic and the death of George Floyd. “Over these past couple of months our foundation has been shaken — not just by a pandemic that stole too many of our loved ones, upended our daily lives, and sent tens of millions into unemployment, but also by the rumbling of the age-old fault lines that our country was built on: the lines of race and power that are now,...

    Twitter announced Thursday that it had deleted more than 170,000 accounts tied to a Chinese state-linked operation that were spreading deceptive information around the COVID-19 virus, political dynamics in Hong Kong, and other issues. Almost 25,000 of the accounts that were deleted formed what Twitter described as the “core network,” while around 150,000 accounts were amplifying messages from the core groups. Twitter noted that the accounts taken down this week were tied to a Chinese state-backed operation last year that attempted to sow political discord in Hong Kong. Those accounts were also taken down. According to an analysis of the...

    can't breathe." That was the reply on Saturday of Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying to her American counterpart, Morgan Ortagus, who had criticized Beijing over its moves to end Hong Kong's autonomy. Since Friday, when President Donald Trump announced measures targeting China over Hong Kong and other matters, Beijing has waged a ferocious disinformation campaign against the United States. The campaign is clearly a result of Beijing's new hardline approach to the world, and is possibly a sign that Chinese policymakers have run out of feasible options. In any case, relations between Washington and Beijing are about to become...

    New York Times opinion writer Bari Weiss got buried by her colleagues for live-tweeting her own take on the newsroom’s work dynamic on Thursday afternoon. After the Times published a highly controversial op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) entitled “Send in the Military”, Weiss claimed the newsroom has turned into a “civil war” between the “new guard” and the “old guard.”

    Within hours of publishing a column by a U.S. senator conveying an opinion held by a majority of Americans, The New York Times’ staff erupted in an outrage, calling their employer’s decision to print a differing opinion, “surreal and horrifying.” The editorial page editor James Bennet at first defended running counter viewpoints by those in policy positions, but by Thursday, the New York Times fully relented, issuing an apology and blaming a “rushed editorial process” for its decision to run the op-ed at all. The op-ed, written by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., called on the federal government to “send in...

    AG ^ | May 24, 2020 | By Victor Davis Hanson
    As a general rule, when the New York Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, Public Broadcasting Service, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN begin to parrot a narrative, the truth often is found in simply believing just the opposite. Put another way, the media’s “truth” is a good guide to what is abjectly false. Perhaps we can call the lesson of this valuable service, the media’s inadvertent ability to convey truth by disguising it with transparent bias and falsehood, the “Doctrine of Media Untruth.” Take the strange case of the respective records of liberal New York Governor Andrew Cuomo...

    Tallahassee Reports ^ | May 20, 2020 | Brian Burgess
    Dozens of media outlets, both in Florida and nationally, published the sensational story of Dr. Rebekah Jones, a state Department of Health employee who was fired by the administration of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Trump ally, after – she says – she refused to manipulate data to support the governor’s plan to reopen the state. But a deeper look at the underlying facts expose a less sensational, yet all-too-common narrative: a media feeding frenzy caused by a deep-seated desire to report on scandal and cover-ups, which Rebekah Jones’ claims delivered – if only they were true. They are not....
  • Coronavirus: Protesters line ‘body bags’ outside Florida’s state capitol

    Protesters lined up body bags on the steps of Florida’s state capitol building Tuesday morning amid the coronavirus pandemic. They were in Tallahassee to encourage Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to listen to state and federal medical experts. The body bags symbolize the additional victims of COVID-19 that could result from relaxing shelter in place orders. A larger than life Donald Trump caricature dressed in a prison jumpsuit joined the protesters along with the grim reaper. This group calls themselves the indivisible movement. Members staged similar protests at the capitol buildings in Austin, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona Tuesday.

    Protestors in Michigan planning to rally at the state Capitol on Thursday are being warned that if they bring firearms to the event they will be arrested. The warnings come after several members of the groups planning on attending the rally called for the assassination of Governor Gretchen Whitmer which saw one man writing: “Can we please just take up a collection for an assassin to put that woman from Michigan down.” On Monday, Whitmer said she respected people’s rights to protest but was becoming “increasingly concerned about the violent nature of the comments being made” and the “extreme rhetoric...

    New York (AFP) - A newly erected billboard in New York's Times Square shows the number of US coronavirus deaths that its creator says could have been avoided if President Donald Trump had acted sooner -- and it's called the "Trump Death Clock." Created by filmmaker Eugene Jarecki, the "clock" was installed on the roof of a Times Square building, empty due to the pandemic. As of Monday, the counter showed more than 48,000 deaths out of a total of more than 80,000, by far the highest tally in the world. The "clock" ticks on the assumption that 60 percent...

    A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal - to combat online efforts to promote President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president's claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across...
