    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Pentagon’s research and development wing, is developing an air-launched drone that will carry air-to-air missiles. Fighter jets will carry the drone, which will allow the planes to reach out and touch targets far beyond the range of existing missiles. The prospect of such a drone opens up a world of possibilities, including launching the drone from other military aircraft, ships, and even land. DARPA awarded Phase I design work contracts for the“Project LongShot” program to General Atomics, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman. LongShot“will increase the survivability of manned platforms by allowing them...
  • Washington Post report praises Kamala Harris for 'shoe choice,' gets slammed on Twitter

    A report from The Washington Post raised some eyebrows as it praised Kamala Harris' "shoe choice" earlier in the week. Upon her visit to Milwaukee, Joe Biden's running mate was seen sporting, as the Post described, "black, low-rise Chuck Taylor All-Stars, the classic Converse shoe that has long been associated more closely with cultural cool than carefully managed high-profile candidacies." **SNIP** The piece on the California senator was mocked on social media. "This is so embarrassing. Imagine The Post doing this in 2008 with Palin, Bachmann in 2012, or in the future with Haley or Stefanik in 2024," NewsBusters managing...
  • Post-convention Bounce? Not For Biden.

    It turns out, four days of a Zoom/telethon-type of convention did not do any polling favors for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Presidential candidates and incumbents typically enjoy a five point post-convention bounce, according to Gallup, which is an “expected and anticipated part of each presidential campaign.” But not for Joe.

    The Washington Post tried to push back on President Donald Trump’s claim that the most dangerous cities in America are run by Democrats – but the graph provided largely proved Trump’s point. Trump said Wednesday that “every one” of America’s “20 most dangerous” cities “are Democrat run.” WaPo’s analysis headline wrote that “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.” The article, however, did not provide a single city run by a Republican in the top 20 most violent cities per capita. According to data WaPo gathered to disprove Trump, 19...
  • Keith C. Burris: Truth, fairness and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Post-Gazette ^ | 6/10/20 | Keith C. Burris
    In recent days the readers of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have been subjected to a great deal of disinformation about the Post-Gazette. It is time for the rest of the story. Let’s start with this: Editors at this newspaper did not single out a black reporter and a black photographer and ban them from covering Pittsburgh protests after the killing of George Floyd. And we certainly did not single out two people and keep them from covering local protests because they were black. That is an outrageous lie - a defamation, in fact. We assumed the lie was so outrageous that...

  • Trump’s approval rating hits high for 2019 in wake of impeachment talk

    NY Posr ^ | Oct. 3, 2019 | Lou Brown
    President Trump’s approval has risen to 49 percent — its highest mark this year, according to a new poll. Despite the launch of impeachment proceedings, the president saw a 2-point increase from a poll a month ago, according to the new Hill-HarrisX survey released on Wednesday and taken after the impeachment inquiry was begun. That makes him just 2 points shy of his highest-ever approval rating of 51 percent last August, according to The Hill. Just as encouraging for the president, his disapproval also dropped — to 51 percent, his lowest level this year. The Harris survey is among Trump’s...

    The $250 million defamation lawsuit filed by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann against the Washington Post was dismissed Friday. Attorneys for the Kentucky teen — who was filmed earlier this year in January wearing a MAGA hat in a viral standoff with Native American activist Nathan Phillips in Washington, DC — claimed the newspaper’s coverage of the incident led to a “mob of bullies which attacked, vilified & threatened” Sandmann. But US District Judge William Bertelsman tossed the suit, saying the paper was within its rights to publish Phillips’ views that the teen was deliberately blocking his path...

    I don’t want to divide up the country. I don’t want to occupy New York City or San Francisco. I just want to take the minority of outraged Communist and build a monument to freedom with their skulls. The Democrat Party is willing to burn America down in order to steal it, and they are now the open enemy of the state and the people, and they’re going to get their reply ballistically, not rhetorically. Once you’re kissed in the forehead that way, there is no further reply. Nature is brilliantly subtle like that. Nothing less will suffice any longer....

    More than 6,000 mailed ballots in Florida went uncounted in November's midterm elections, according to a report by the Associated Press. Officials at the Florida Department of State informed a federal judge last week that 6,670 ballots that were mailed in ahead of the November 6 midterm election were left uncounted because they arrived after Election Day. Ballots mailed inside the U.S. must reach election offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day under current Florida law. It is not yet clear why the ballots did not make it to the election offices on time. According to The Associated Press, the...

    **SNIP** The post office will be closed so there will be no mail delivery Monday for the holiday. Those looking to send mail also won’t be able to, so anyone looking to mail something should be sure to get to the post office Saturday before it closes, their next chance will be Tuesday. The Department of Motor Vehicles offices in most states will be closed for the holiday as well. Some offices even closed early on the Friday ahead of Columbus Day. Schools aren’t required to close for the holiday, so those wondering whether they should head to the bus...
  • Did The Denver Post Publish A Letter To The Editor That Insinuated Trump Be Executed For Treason?

    07/26/2018 1:19:53 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 36 replies ^ | July 26, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    Well, this is just insane. The Denver Post decided to print a letter to the editor that pretty much suggested President Donald J. Trump be executed for treason. The insanity stems from the recent press conference President Trump had with Vladimir Putin, which was arguably not one of the best moments of the Trump White House. At the same time, any legitimate criticism was lost due to liberal hysteria and media overreach, namely this whack job theory that the president committed treason (via Free Beacon): The Denver Post published a letter to the editor suggesting President Donald Trump should be executed...

    As employees from the paper protest against massive cuts to the newsroom and top editors resign, staffers tell The Daily Beast, ‘This is chaos.’ ==================================================================================== It seems odd that they’re fighting for the right to speak at a place called The Lipstick Building. Today, 150 journalists from the Denver Post, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and the Mercury News, and 49 other smaller papers who are accustomed to reporting the news will become the news, as they protest the owner of their papers in what some have called “a fight for their lives.” Alden Global Capital has been surprisingly silent...

    An editor at The Denver Post who oversaw an editorial critical of budget and staff cuts made by the newspaper's New York-based hedge fund owners has resigned. Editorial Page Editor Chuck Plunkett ... The Post last month published Plunkett's initial editorial headlined "As vultures circle, The Denver Post must be saved," calling on Alden to sell the newspaper. ... Plunkett said he was warned afterward "not to bite the hand that fed us" but couldn't stay silent.

    President Trump stepped on stage in Phoenix on Tuesday night with something clearly eating at him. Minutes into his style rally, we learned what: It wasn't the white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazis who threw the nation into chaos and allegedly killed a woman in Virginia last week. Or the intractable 16-year war in Afghanistan that he just announced he's revving up. It's the media. Trump spent nearly a third — if not more— of his 90-minute rally rehashing his public remarks in the wake of Charlottesville and complaining that he was widely criticized for them....
