Maybe I’m pissed off at what the US Air Force just did because of lingering inter-service rivalries remaining during my 20 fun-filled years in the Marine Corps.
No, that’s not it.
Maybe I’m pissed off at what the US Air Force just did because as someone who’s been a part of the US Armed Forces his entire life (dependent, active duty, retiree), just knowing that I’m even remotely associated to the USAF embarrasses me.
No, that’s not it.
Maybe I’m pissed off at what the US Air Force just did because in essence they just tucked their collective tails between their collective tails and apologized to one of the worst examples of organized barbarism ever.
But first, a bit of background – just about everyone on the planet has already heard of the Yanny vs Laurel audio illusion. So as any good marketeer assigned to the AF Recruiting Command would know, jump of YvL while it’s hot.
And to their credit, that’s exactly what the Air Force did, possibly coming up with one of the better tweets ever;
Sadly, within a matter of mere hours, the Air Force not only pulled the tweet… they apologized for it.
We apologize for the earlier tweet regarding the A-10. It was made in poor taste and we are addressing it internally. It has since been removed.
The rabid NeverTrump media were giddy as schoolgirls when the word got out that Donald and Melania weren’t on the guest list to the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Oddly enough, when the same word got out that Barry and Meeshie didn’t make the list either, nary a whisper from the leftie press.
Despite failing to make the cut, the Trumps still showed class by sending the happy couple the traditional gift American presidents have sent to royal weddings, the official glass bowl of the current POTUS, as reported by Monica Showalter of The American Thinker (and also verified by London’s The Daily Star).
As it turns out, that’s what the Trumans sent Liz and Phil a bowl when they got hitched, as did the Reagans when Chuck and Di tied the knot.
But as it turns out, the Trumps went a step further.
As reporter Showalter correctly cited, Harry and Meghan have asked that in lieu of gifts, to instead contribute to one of their seven favored charities (also verified by People magazine), which is exactly what the Trumps did.
To which specific charity and the amount donated has not been made public, which is the way any charitable donation should be.
Anyhow, Showalter (a crackerjack reporter in her own right) noticed something a bit odd going on with the media on both sides of the pond;
But after all the wall-to-wall speculation about whether he or President Obama would get an invitation, and quite a few in the press thought President Obama would, the press was curiously silent about whether President Obama was just as magnanimous as President Trump. I Googled and Googled, and nada, zip, nothing. If he sent a present, the press is weirdly derelict of duty, because we know that the journalists would have told us about it. The Obamas made much of their supposed friendship with the royals during the Invictus Games in Canada not too long ago. Well, with all that friendship, pretty strange we aren’t hearing about them sending a wedding gift. Given the press’s suckuppery to the Obama clan, doesn’t it seem likely that if they gave a gift, the press would report it?
Nope, the evidence for now is that the Obamas sent nothing. This would be about par for them. They never gave their kids Christmas gifts, for one. And the previous gifts they gave to the royal family have been utterly tacky – tapes of Obama’s speeches on iPods and other junk nobody in his right mind would keep. They aren’t good at this.
You’d think they’d be bigger about it anyway.
Thus far, nothing from the press. Maybe we will hear about a gift sent late, after people start to notice. For now, what a cheapskate.
As shocking as it may sound, ex-Playboy model Stephanie Adams has apparently committed suicide leaping from the 25th floor of a New York City hotel, taking her 7-year-old son with her.
All this comes on the heels of her long and drawn-out custody battle with her ex-husband, Charles Nicolai.
As reported by the Daily Caller’s Audrey Conklin, “Adams, 47, allegedly wanted to take her son, Vincent, on vacation to Europe, but … Nicolai stopped Adams from traveling with her son.”
Also cited by reporter Conklin;
In a court case held at Manhattan Supreme Court, Nicolai requested that Vincent not be taken on the trip to Europe, which the judge granted, ruling that Adams hand over her son’s passport.
Adams was recorded in a two-minute phone call to The [New York] Post’s Richard Johnson on Thursday, saying, “All I want to do is take my son and get away from this nightmare for a few days, but they won’t let me.”
Other than posing for Playboy in 2003 as the first ever lesbian model, Adams also had quite the payday courtesy of the New York City taxpayers. As reported by CBS News;
Former Playboy Playmate Stephanie Adams was awarded $1.2 million for rough treatment she received during a 2006 scuffle with police, which she says she led to permanent neck and back injuries. In her lawsuit against the city, Adams says officers threw her to the ground at gunpoint after a taxi driver falsely claimed she was armed and dangerous.
The word’s out – President Trump considers the members of MS-13 to be “animals” as reported by the Breitbart.com news portal.
Now I’m not going to waste my time citing the sources to each and every news article that details how the Central American criminal gang dispatches those who get in their way… and sometimes those who don’t get in their way.
That whole bloodlust thingee.
Suffice it to say that members of MS-13 have murdered people with guns, knives, and machetes. Speaking of machetes, they have quite the reputation for cutting the heads off their victims just to make a point.
In an especially bloody hit, the Washington Post notes of a hit on a rival gang member who was stabbed in the stomach so many times, “you could see his intestines.”
Nonetheless, the president’s “animal” comment has many *a-chem* “journalists” accusing the POTUS of racism.
With no pun intended, the pro-MS-13 tweet sent out by bleeding heart liberal John Harwood is possibly the most gutless utterance posted on social media;
however repugnant their actions, MS-13 gang members are human beings IMHO
Britain’s top cop against so-called “football hooligans” has issued a warning to English soccer fans heading to Russia for the World Cup international tournament; don’t bring you English flag.
Not only has Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts, national lead officer of “football policing,” warned the upwards of 10,000 English fans heading to the Land of the Rus that the Cross of St. George could be seen as “imperialistic” and “antagonistic”.
Someone in the Sunflower State has been very, very bad.
At least according to the findings of a University of Kansas internal investigation regarding allegations that freshman members of the cheer squad here hazed to the point of being ordered to strip for no other reason than to get the frosh would-be cheerleaders au natural.
As reported by the university’s Kansas State Collegian newspaper, “Two University of Kansas cheerleaders have come forward with details about an alleged ‘initiation’ hazing incident involving six first-year members of the cheer squad.”
According to the school’s paper, the alleged hazing took place on July 25, 2017, “during a camp for children in kindergarten through third grade.”
Also cited by The Collegian, once the day’s activities with the children came to an end, the alleged hazing took place in an abandoned house somewhere in the wilds of the Kansas plains;
Later, both sources said they were taken to a room where they were asked a series of questions, and if they answered a question incorrectly, they were told to remove an article of clothing.
“They questioned me, took off my clothes and put my blindfold back on,” one source said.
All six of the team’s new members were led, naked, into another room, one of the sources said.
“I remember getting put into a big laundry basket,” one said. “I was shaken around and stuff.”
Later, the source said she was moved to another room in the house.
“I had taken my blindfold off along with another girl sitting next to me,” she said, “and two alumni guys walked in and saw us naked.”
The girls were eventually separated into two groups.
“After that, they took two girls downstairs, they had been initiated,” a source said. “And then they took me and two other girls, put us in a room together and told us we are ugly, we don’t deserve to be on the team and our skills weren’t good enough. They sat us down with all the alumni and all returning cheerleaders.”
Both sources said they feel lasting effects from the incident.
“It greatly decreased my confidence and performance ability,” one said.
The other member said she will not be returning to KU because of the events that took place.
The results of the investigation has resulted in the entire cheer squad being placed on probation until September 26, 2018.
It doesn’t ever end, does it? First we had to deal with the image of Barry Hussein Obama’s “Pajama Boy” hawking health care paid for by someone else. By the way, if your adult son still wears a onesie, you’ve got bigger problems than health insurance for junior.
Anyhow, not long thereafter, the world had the cuck-friendly version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” forced on us. Remember the cringe-worthy lyrics?
Her: I ought to say no, no, no
Him: You reserve the right to say no.
Her: At least I’m gonna say that I tried.
Him: You reserve the right to say no.
Now comes word from Down Under that if (maybe the dingo ate) your baby had the bad manners to squeeze out a massive steamer into their nappie, you better get baby’s permission first before changing that same stanky diaper.
‘Sexuality expert’ and author Deanne Carson has attracted mass ridicule after suggesting babies should “give consent” to having their nappies/diapers changed by their parents.
Speaking to ABC News (Australia), Carson was asked what age clients she works with.
She replied: “We work with children from three years old, we work with parents from birth”.
“From birth?” the host responds, to which Carson smugly retorts:
“Yeah, just about how to set up a culture of consent in their homes. So, ‘I’m going to change your nappy now, is that ok?’
“Of course the baby isn’t going to respond, ‘Yes mum that’s awesome, I’d love to have my nappy changed’. But if you leave a space and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact then you’re letting that child know that their response matters”.
Just one question for this dimwit; if your infant is that damn smart as to give you non-verbal permission to change their crap-filled diaper, shouldn’t that very same booger-eater be whip-smart enough not to have shat themselves to begin with?
Better known on the internet as an unapologetic hard-right leaning activist, Lauren Southern is also really, really good looking.
But wait, there’s more. She’s also a man.
Well, according to the Clair Vaughan Medical Clinic of Toronto, Canada, as well as the Ontario provincial government, she is.
As seen in the video below, Southern decided to conduct her own social experiment.
With her native Canada firmly under the thumb of renown soy-boy Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Southern decided to see just how far removed from reality was her native land.
Specifically, Southern wanted to see for herself if under the current political and cultural atmosphere of Canada, could she possibly punch as many politically correct buttons needed to have herself officially classified as a man.
Without me ruining the video, just marvel on how easy it was for the comely blonde to have herself registered as a dude;
I sometimes get the distinct impression that if President Trump discovered a $5 cure for cancer, the Fake News Media would attack him for putting oncologists out of work.
Case in point: NBC reporter Hallie Jackson just attacked the Chief Executive for “choreographing” a “staged production meant for television” when he and the First Lady greeted the just-freed American prisoners held by North Korea’s Kim Jong-in.
NBC News star Hallie Jackson said that President Trump’s wee-hours greeting of the three American prisoners who’d been held in North Korea was a “very carefully choreographed,” “staged production meant for television.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland early Thursday with Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, and they were greeted by the president, first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The NBC News White House correspondent harped on the fact that the event was televised.
“It was a moment of intense anticipation … very carefully choreographed, right? The vice president landed, the president, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and then that plane carrying these three American citizens,” Jackson said on MSNBC. “Donald Trump is a former reality show producer. This was a staged production meant for television, meant for the cameras, meant to be shown and seen here in this country and around the world.”
Obviously, this chick’s never seen the video of Barry Hussein Obama’s Rose Garden glaringly staged event for the parents of Bowe Bergdahl.
Love that tree, worship that tree… sacrifice the human.
It’s a story as old as time itself; Earth-worshipping pagans have no qualms when it comes to sacrificing their fellow humans to the likes of Hebo, Quetzalcoatl, or Be’al.
Neo-pagans don’t resort do burying their victims alive, carving their hearts out, nor employing a wicker man. Today’s hip-and-with-it pagans instead rely on a more drawn-out, but still sure way of expediting their victims – death by bureaucracy.
The grim irony of the pursuit of “green” energy is that it may be placing millions of people in poor countries at risk of living much shorter, unhealthier lives due to air pollution, according to a report from The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF).
Climate change has become an international issue, and environmental activists have painted the situation as increasingly dire. In order to escape the world-changing effects of climate change and avert catastrophe, humanity must break its dependence on fossil fuels.
“To avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to keep the world’s remaining fossil fuels in the ground,” Greenpeace’s website explains about the group’s “Keep It In The Ground” campaign. “That means moving away from coal, oil, and natural gas, and towards a renewable energy future.”
The aim, unfeasible as it is, would actually cause more deaths from pollution as countries in the beginning stages of development are left stuck, unable to progress through the stages of the “energy ladder” that lead to less carbon emissions and a higher standard of living, according to the GWPF report released Friday.
Yet as disturbing as Peacere’s article is, it turns out that he may have just scratched the surface.
An estimated 1.6 billion people, concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, do not have access to electricity. And even more people—a staggering 2.4 billion—use biomass such as wood or dung as their primary source of cooking and heating fuel. These individuals are living in energy poverty, which means they lack access to modern energy services.
Burning biomass [wood or dung] for fuel can pose significant health risks from indoor air pollution, including death. It also shortens workdays according to daylight and forces women and children to collect fuel instead of allowing women to engage in income-generating activities or children to pursue an education. These drawbacks reinforce a household’s inability to escape the energy poverty cycle.
The burning of biomass in the developing world for heating and cooking results in high indoor particle concentrations. Long-term exposure to airborne particulate matter (PM) has been associated with increased rates of acute respiratory infections, chronic obstructive lung disease and cancer.
The same scientific report also noted;
An increasing body of evidence has linked exposure to indoor pollutants with increased rates of respiratory morbidity and mortality. Women and children exposed to high indoor PM concentrations have significantly increased rates of acute respiratory infections (ARI), and women cooking over biomass fires for extensive periods have an enhanced risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer.
Nonetheless, Amazon.com now has quite the booming business selling dried cow dung cakes to urbanized Indians seeking a whiff of nostalgia for the good old days when they were living a life of crushing poverty back on the farm.
When President Trump recently awarded the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy to the Black Knights of the US Military Academy’s (West Point) football team, he seemingly caught the attendees and guests by surprise when he made mention of a possible fifth branch to the Department of Defense, the US Space Force.
In spite of the news wonks all opining that The Donald seemed to have made-up the notion of a Space Force on the spot, Fox News via the “Greg Gutfeld Show” (video seen below) acknowledge that certain members of Congress last summer have voiced the apparent need for a new military service.
Much akin to how the US Marine Corps and the US Navy are co-equals within the civilian-led Department of the Navy, the Space Force (also being considered to be tagged the Space Corps) would saddle-up as a co-equal with the US Air Force under the civilian Secretary of the Air Force.
In the meantime, the Business Insider notes of five rather bizarre weapons systems that our potentially newest branch of the armed forces;
First up is the Air Force’s extra hush-hush X-37 Orbital Test Vehicle. In light that the government has never made public as to exactly what the X-37 does, it’s speculated that craft could be used either as a spy satellite or as a weapons platform, maybe even a combination of the two.
The good folks over at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) have sent the pilotless “space plane” into orbit only a handful of times. There have been five different flights since first introduced in 2010 – the shortest duration at eight months, the longest time clocking-in at a solid two years.
Pretty much the only thing the Pentagon has admitted to the public is that the reusable craft has been testing “an advanced propulsion system.”
In joint US-Israeli venture, the THEL reportedly is capable of destroying “incoming munitions as they fly through the air.” Does the Business Insider (BI) mean inter-continental ballistic missiles?
Drone strikes launched from space? Not just any drones… we’re talking entire swarms of miniature drones.
While the BI reported on the X-37 as the drone in question, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility of the space plane being its own micro-aircraft carrier carrying hundreds, if not thousands of high explosive suicide drones.
Either remotely piloted or pre-programmed, the mini-drones could conceivably attack anything from mass troop formations, to destroying everything from command, control, and communication (C3) systems, to possibly even anti-air or anti-ship weapons.
It may be misspelled, but the MAHEM system is just that.
According to BI, “[The MAHEM] warhead can be placed on something as large as an ICBM or as small as an RPG and shoots an ‘explosively-formed jet’ of chemically molten metal into (and probably right through) any reinforced or armored structure.”
Development on Excalibur began in the 1970s, but kicked into high gear when President Reagan advanced the Strategic Defense Initiative, better known to the public as “Star Wars”.
Long story short, the Excalibur Project consisted of focusing the output of a nuclear explosion into X-rays. A single Excalibur laser could attack multiple missile targets up to thousands of miles distant.
As Coffey noted in his book;
He [Tiller] planned to place Excalibur in high orbit. As enemy missiles left the atmosphere, the Excalibur controller would pick-up the bright plumes of the missiles’ rocket engines. Excalibur’s hydrogen bomb would then detonate, its x-ray lasers would flash for a few milliseconds, and the Soviet missiles, warheads still inside, would disappear.
Just about everyone in the nation either has received, knows of someone who has received, or has at least heard of the $1,000 bonus checks issued out by a boat-load by employers because of the President Trump tax cuts.
Since then, a very well known politician from the Bay Area opined of the bonus amounts as “mere crumbs.”
In Nancy’s world, a mere $1K probably is mere crumbs. No thanks to the same brand of socialism that Pelosi and Crew try to force on the rest of us.
Perhaps as proof of just how bad things are in the People’s Republic of California is a recent story out of Silicon Valley that a burned-out husk of a home is on the market for a modest $800,000.
But in all fairness, the burned-out shack isn’t in Pelosi’s congressional district.
In all honesty, things are worse in the City by the Bay. Much worse.
As reported by the CBS affiliate KPIX (of San Francisco), the cheapest home on the market today is a cracker box of a two-bedroom home that totals less that 600 hundred square feet (actually, the home is 596 sq ft).
But get ready for this… the teeny-weeny-itsy-bitsy abode lists a whopping $649,000. Keep in mind, that’s just the listing price.
When it’s all said and done, the glorified studio apartment may sell for $1 million.
Coldwell Banker realtor Karen Mai said, “It’s going to go higher…It is very crazy that the price is so high that a lot of people cannot afford it.”
San Francisco firefighter Kevin Day said, “I have not made an offer yet…but I’ve been told I wouldn’t even be able to compete. They’ll probably get $800,000 to $1 million for it.”
Oh, and no one is quite sure how old the home really is. The only thing for sure is that the tiny house was built sometime before the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. All the records were burned in the post-earthquake fire.
One other thing, if and when this home actually does sell for a million, that figures out to $1,677.85 per square foot.
A $1,000 bonus check won’t even buy you 12″x12″x12″ in Pelosi’s world.
To give the reader an idea of what a generic 600 square feet of home looks like from the inside, here you go. Remember, this will more than likely sell for a million dollars.
At least two dozen members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards force were killed as well as an undisclosed amount of newly arrived military supplies have been destroyed in an Israeli airstrike in Syria.
As reported by NBC News, US officials (speaking on the grounds of anonymity) have verified that three American-made F-15 Eagle fighter jets have hit a major Iranian military base in Hama, Syria, resulting two dozen dead and wounding three dozen others.
Long considered one of the top air superiority fighter jets in the world, the Eagle also has all-weather ground strike capabilities, as the Iranians just found out.
The Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad actually controls less than half of the nation. The country is a helter-skelter patchwork of areas shared by government forces, Kurdish rebels, various anti-Assad groups, and a much depleted ISIS.
Still on the ground in Syria, elements of a US Marine Expeditionary Unit and a handful of American Special Forces troops are in the eastern half of the embattled region.
Meanwhile, NBC News cites the soldiers loyal to the Damascus government are so weakened;
Russia runs the air war for the Assad regime in Syria, Iran is now running the ground war, the officials said, with Iranian military present at every major Russian and Syrian regime base in the country.
As also noted by NBC;
In the past two weeks Iran has increased military cargo flights to Syria, stocked with additional weapons and supplies like small arms, ammunition and surface-to-air missiles that two U.S. officials believe are meant both to shore up Iranian ground forces and to strike at Israel. For years the U.S. has tracked arms shipments from Iran to Hezbollah fighters in Syria supporting the Assad regime, but recently Iran has been supplying Hezbollah with more material and logistical support.
The same anonymous US officials supposedly warn that Israel is girding their loins for war with the Islamic Republic;
Israel now seems to be preparing for military action and is seeking U.S. help and support.
During the past week, senior Israeli military leaders have been meeting with senior U.S. counterparts, both in the region and in the U.S., looking for U.S. support for stronger action against Iran in Syria. U.S. officials say the Israeli requests include intelligence support.
Perhaps proving that the Jewish State is one to be reckoned with, NBC quotes the US Secretary of Defense and retired Marine General James “Chaos” Mattis;
“The Iranian forces … or the proxy forces have tried to get down closer to the Israeli border, I mean very close to it, and you’ve seen Israel take action over that.”
Born to the world Delmar Drew Arnaud, but better known by his stage name “Daz Dillinger” (formerly “Dat Nigga Daz“), the former running buddy of Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr (AKA: “Snoop Doggy Dog, Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion, Snoop D-O-double-G, Snoopzilla“) is openly calling for violence against fellow rapper Kanye West.
As pretty much everyone in the Western world already knows, West is in deep-Kimchee over his budding bromance with The Donald.
Again, as everyone is already aware of, anyone in the entertainment industry who makes even the slightest utterance in approval of President Trump will find the full force and fury of the Progressive Gestapo unleashed against them.
Seen below, in a video shared internet-wide, Delmar or Daz or Dat (whatever his name is) is calling on the Los Angeles-based Crips gang to “F*ck Kanye up.”
Yet prior to the actual threat of violence to West, Arnaud/Dillinger made a weak attempt at black solidarity against eviul white conservatives;
“We all in one boat, an’ they killin’ all of us…”
Obviously, Arnaud/Dillinger has never heard of the Democratic Party controlled cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, etc.
In another patently ignorant rant, the geographically challenged Arnaud/Dillinger actually threatened West with this particularly stupid comment;
Better not ever see you around the LBC (Long Beach City/California). Better not ever see you around California. Stay in Calabasas, ya hear me?
The city of Calabasas happens to be in California. In fact, Calabasas is less that 40 miles from Long Beach.
Arnaud/Dillinger made his fortune in the world of Rap/Hip-Hop, receiving co-production credit for the touching arias, “Serial Killa” and “For All My Niggaz & Bitches“.
