  3. AFSOC Leadership Drain

    Example; Here's some USAF wide active duty 0-6 retirement numbers for FY16 (I couldn't find more recent data); - FY16; There were 3320 active duty 0-6's in the USAF of which 548 retired in FY16. See page 79 (pg78 - 82 covers USAF retirement numbers etc). http://actuary.defense.gov/Portals/15/Documents/MRS_StatRpt_2016 v4 FINAL.pdf?ver=2017-07-31-104724-430
  4. It looks the Russians are doubling down on this demo stuff because there are now 4 Su-57s in the Syrian AO. https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/defense/2018-02-26/russia-deploys-su-57s-syria

    IMHO, CNX the parade idea. Here's a few "non-parade" options for the President to consider. These type events will showcase the US military and he can simultaneously get his rocks off/send a message to our adversaries:>) The President should attend some already scheduled DoD events (might save $$$$?) and bring lots of media along to help showcase these U.S. military capabilities. Non-Parade Options for the POTUS:<) - Attend a massive firepower demo like this previous President; The media can even use the same Headline with some minor changes; "Air Power - President Trump Sees Bigly Display". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-F9f84F_a4 - IMHO, If the POTUS wants to better comprehend those pointy things tethered to the Nuclear Football then I would suggest the following; -- Make a surprise stop at one of our bases during a scheduled NSI; He should visit a ICBM Silo, WSA, flight line, bombers/crews, and maybe the POTUS could go thru a "SIMULATED" PRP Cert process. -- Visit Vandenberg AFB during the next scheduled LGM-30G (Minuteman III) JTA test launch. - Visit Vandenberg or Alaska during the next THAAD ABM test. - etc. Sent from Outlook

    I believe this is the first time Special Counsel Mueller has indicted a foreigner that isn't a Russian? Also, this is the first-time "ever/I think/?" a foreigner has been indicted and convicted/pleaded guilty to charges levied by any appointed Special Counsel. Alex van der Zwaan is a citizen of the Netherlands and he pleaded guilty to making a false statement to both the FBI and Special Counsel. I wouldn't be surprised if a few other non-Russian foreign middlemen "that lied to the FBI and/or the Special Counsel or committed some other TBD crime against the USA" eventually get indicted. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/20/us/politics/alex-van-der-zwaan-gates-russia-mueller.html
  7. Saddle up for Syria? Or Op Deny Christmas '13

    Then there's this; Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatens US forces with 'Ottoman slap'; http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/recep-tayyip-erdogan-threatens-us-forces-with-ottoman-slap/article/2648958 The first thing I envisioned when I read this headline was "a couple of hot Ottoman chicks having a tussle with lots of arousing slaps, hair pulling, bouncing boobs, girls ripping the cloths off each other, scratching, name calling, crying, etc". It was a big let down after I read the entire article. This Ottoman Slap stuff seems a wee bit effeminate for Sultan Macho. IMHO, the Turks need to understand American Troops have no fear of an Ottoman Slap/Catfight/etc but it is stimulating and all red blooded American men typically get a woody just thinking about this stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82BNBwck8Zs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEdPV-mh1js
  8. Israeli Viper Shot Down in Syria

    Today a Turkish army helicopter was also shot down by Syrian Kurdish YPG. Casualties TBD. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-mideast-crisis-syria-turkey-helicopte/turkish-helicopter-shot-down-by-kurdish-militia-in-syrias-afrin-erdogan-idUKKBN1FU0L2?rpc=401

    This foreign national/former spy "Christopher Steele" sure had a good thing going, with numerous sources of potential pay for his efforts. A few examples; Getting paid by the DNC to get dirt from the Russians on the Republican Nominee for President. Additionally, he received a promise of more payola from the FBI (October 2017) if he continued this productive/FISA worthy/dirt digging work and he also got to tell his story to Yahoo News. I don't know if Yahoo News actually paid him for this info but this news story did make it into the approved final FISA warrant application on Carter Page. I'm sure that some of the key leadership (we know the names or at least most of the names) in the DNC/FBI/Justice Department/(State Department/TBD?) were delighted with this freebee via Yahoo News/Steele.
  10. The Next President is...

    I still don't understand why the FBI didn't notify/warn (pronto/day one) the Republican Party Nominee for President of the USA when this Russian Spy wannabe started working on his campaign team? IMHO, giving Presidential candidates/serving Presidents a heads-up about stuff like this should be SOP, particularly if it involves someone that was under a FISA warrant since 2014.

    Yep, you nailed it and I will have to add this to my list of key indicators that Trumps a racist. President Trump being smart enough to take advantage of this great trend started by President Obama's outstanding economic policies is definitely something he is guilty of. President Trumps very own policies are now stoking the U.S. economic engine and they're a complement to President Obama's efforts to get this bull market started. I'll bet the white supremacist/KKK are as enthusiastic about these stats as the democrats were during the Presidents first sotu address.
  13. Apparently, we're all pretty stupid,...

    He just might get a surprise blanket party if some of his schools faculty member are products of the DoD Troops to Teachers program. Overall, veterans seem to do ok in life after the military. A few "high-end" stats; - 33 Presidents served in the US military or State Militias (that's how they served way back in the good ole days); - 10 Presidents were former teachers and 4 of those 10 also served in the US military. - There are currently 14 living US veterans that are billionaires. - There are currently 15 CEO's of Fortune 500 companies that are veterans. - etc.
  14. F-35 Lightning info

    Don't forget that Nuke Sharing crap; F-35's and them new B61-12's are going to be a perfect match.

    Here's just one "small" indicator that the Presidents policies and agenda might be racist:<) If these numbers continue to fall the Presidents in deep shit and he will, at a minimum, probably see an attempt by the Democrats in Congress to censure him:<) Excerpts; - Almost unnoticed by the mainstream media, unemployment rates for Hispanics, African-Americans and Asians have not only fallen, but are now at all-time lows. That's right: Unemployment has never been lower for minorities, at least not since 1972, when such records first started being kept. - The jobless rate for African Americans fell to a record low 6.8% in December from 7.2% the month before. And it was the first time ever that unemployment for African Americans ever fell below 7%. - Hispanics, too, have seen unemployment drop to record-low levels. For Hispanics, unemployment fell below 5% for the first time ever in October. - Asians as a group saw their unemployment rate spike to as high as 8.4% in 2009. In December, it fell below 3% for the first time since 2007, dropping to a record-low 2.5%. https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/dont-look-now-but-minority-unemployment-is-at-record-lows-under-trump/
