Analyzing Russia's Nuclear Submarine Threat

Introduction:

Nuclear submarines are the leading strike force of a fleet, capable of covertly controlling the expanses of the world’s oceans and quickly deploying in the required directions. They deliver unexpected and powerful strikes from the depths of the ocean on both sea and land targets.

The main striking force of the Russian Navy is nuclear submarines armed with ballistic and cruise missiles with nuclear warheads. They are constantly in various parts of the world’s oceans, ready for immediate use of their strategic weapons. Submarines, armed with cruise missiles, are aimed mainly at combating the enemy’s large surface ships and strike on the enemy’s coastal infrastructure. Torpedo nuclear submarines are used to disrupt the enemy’s underwater and surface communications and in the defense system against the underwater threat, as well as to escort surface ships and missile submarines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So I would like to know, where is the US military (and particularly our Navy) in assuring that capabilities necessary to counter these ships and weapons exist, and are moved very quickly into workable production?!?

Somehow, it appears that the US military has gotten more than a bit behind both Russia and China, in signing off on the capabilities of existing destroyers and subs, And that.... needs to get fixed, and quickly.

FOIA Docs Reveal Obama FBI Covered Up "Chart" Of Potential Hillary Clinton Crimes

The top brass of the Obama FBI went to great lengths to justify their decision not to recommend charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information, according to Judicial Watch, which obtained evidence that the agency created a 'chart' of Clinton's offenses.

The newly obtained emails came in response to a court ordered Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that the DOJ had previously ignored.

Via Judicial Watch (emphasis ours):

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, in this country, the monied do not eat their own.

Crimes were committed; violations of law happened; and yet, Hillary Clinton was not, and most probably will not, be investigated for them.

She and Bill probably have a "comfortable arrangement" with some country which does not have a mutual extradition treaty with the United States, so if the excrement even starts to get near the ventilation system, they have a way out, 24/7, on a private jet, into a happy, comfortable paradise.

DEUTSCHE BANK RENEGS ON PLEDGE TO HELP DISTRESSED HOMEOWNERS

This ought to win Deutsche Bank some badly needed good will with global prosecutors investigating the bank for its involvement in various financial frauds - not to mention Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters.

According to a Bloomberg report on Friday, DB has decided - apparently with the blessing of a federally appointed monitor - that it won't pay out the $4 billion balance on its commitment to help distressed homeowners impacted by the housing collapse. The bank had agreed to spend billions of dollars on consumer relief during the waning days of the Obama administration as part of a massive settlement with the DOJ over its role in selling mortgages.

Instead, the bank will use the money on providing new loans.

The bank's monitor said the decision might disappoint some homeowners who had reached out to the bank for relief over the past two years...but, to be fair, DB has already paid out $1.5 billion as part of the program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple in this country; the monied rarely eat their own, as demonstrated by the US judiciary's allowance for DB changing course, and not providing the relief they promised they would.

GOOGLE MAPS REVEALS PATRIOT MISSILE LAUNCH SITES IN TAIWAN

The Taiwanese government is doing damage control after the latest Google Maps upgrade revealed their most sensitive missile sites, down to the launcher types and models of the missiles, for all to see – including archenemy China.

Defense Ministry officials in Taipei are asking Google to blur the missile site locations, which were exposed in painstaking 3D detail in the latest upgrade of Google’s satellite map app, for the sake of national security – while urging the public to remain calm.

OPIOID MAKER USED RAP VIDEO TO PUSH POWERFUL PAINKILLER

Employees at a drug company accused of bribing doctors rapped and danced around a person dressed as a bottle of the highly addictive fentanyl spray in a video meant to motivate sales reps to push the drug.

The video was shown to jurors this week in the closely watched trial in Boston of wealthy Insys Therapeutics Inc. Founder John Kapoor and four other onetime executives, including a former exotic dancer who prosecutors say was hired as a regional sales manager even though she had no pharmaceutical experience.

They’re charged with scheming to pay doctors bribes and kickbacks in exchange for prescriptions of the opioid meant for cancer patients with severe pain. Kapoor and the other former executives of the Chandler, Arizona-based company have denied all wrongdoing.

The video, titled “Great by Choice,” was shown during a national sales meeting in 2015 to encourage employees to talk doctors into prescribing higher doses, prosecutors said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One can nearly sell anything in this country, wrapped up in a pretty advertising campaign, and get away with it, most of the time; but those moral questions, about a drug's power and potential lethality are generally rarely visited in the US.

And ironically, right now, the FDA is pushing for the scheduling of the herb "Kratom", which, when taken in small doses, can assist people suffering from pain, moderate to severe, and not create a "hangover effect" from the drug, which means those taking this herb, will not need more of it then previously, to get comfortable again.

The move comes after months of adjustments to the Parliament’s proposed Copyright Directive. Parliament members will gather for a final vote later this year.

How do you like them Apples? Tim Cook's iPhones sitting in the tree, feeling unloved by the Chinese

Apple's iPhone sales volumes in the strategic Chinese market slumped by double digits in Q4 – the firm's seasonally biggest quarter – as buyers opted for homegrown hardware makers' handsets.

CEO Tim Cook warned at the start of January that Cupertino's mobile phone revenue for Q1 of fiscal '19 ended 29 December were likely to be down 15 per cent, and so it proved when those numbers were filed.

Now Canalys has painted more colour on Apple's actual shipments: Apple sold 2.6 million fewer mobiles in China in the quarter, down almost 18 per cent to 11.5 million units. This was in a market that had declined 10.8 per cent to 100.7 million.

If the web seems slow, blame third-party advertising and analytics scripts.

Many internet users have already come to that conclusion but Patrick Hulce, founder of Dallas, Texas-based Eris Ventures and a former Google engineer, has assembled data that clarifies the impact of third-party scripts in the hope it prompts more efficient coding.

Hulce has compiled a list of the third-party scripts residing in the top million websites and found that the 100 most common bits of JavaScript eat up about 59 per cent of script execution time.

"Third party script execution is the majority chunk of the web today, and it's important to make informed choices," he says in the GitHub post where he presents the data.

NASA's Dawn Mission receives nod in memory of Apollo 13 'naut for asteroid belt derring-do

The mission holds a notable list of firsts and records. It is the first spacecraft to orbit an object in the main asteroid belt. It used solar-electric propulsion, notching up a record-breaking 25,700mph thanks to its ion drive. The figure is 2.7 times that of the previous record and not too far off the velocity produced by the Delta launch vehicle.

Of course, it took the ion drive considerably longer than the chemical rocket. The drive ended up running for 5.9 years in total.

Even though the mission ended when the hydrazine ran dry at the end of October, the spacecraft remains in orbit around Ceres. NASA boffins reckon it could continue circling the dwarf planet for another 20 years or more.

Mexico should help pay for the damage that drug addiction and drug-related violence does to families. Mexico should own up to their crime-sponsoring gun laws, which create victims out of law-abiding citizens, while spreading organized crime and its violence into the great United States of America, where armed citizens must be more vigilant and on watch.

Leftist Politics of Racism and Sexism are Racist and Sexist

The words racism and sexism as used today by the left and the mainstream media are a psychological scam. The real meaning has been destroyed in favor of politically correct lies meant to frighten and deceive the simple-minded masses. Those seeking to divide us are pathological by nature, and they use these terms as weapons. Those individuals and groups who rely on this tactic are spreaders of a societal disease for the single purpose of fulfilling a political agenda. There is no caring or honesty evident, and no real compassion exists. Only anger, hostility, and hatred are pursued. These are the tools of division used by pretenders, those postmodernists who purposely propagate separation instead of unity in order to promote opposite identities.

Jerome Corsi Asks Judge to Impose Gag Order on Roger Stone

Roger Stone’s onetime wingman is asking a federal judge to impose a gag order on the colorful political operative.

Jerome Corsi, a prolific author of conspiracy books who worked with Stone in support of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, filed a motion on Wednesday asking that Stone be forbidden from discussing his case in the news media.

Corsi, who’s alleged to have been one of two intermediaries between Stone and WikiLeaks in 2016 before the activist site published stolen emails damaging to Hillary Clinton, argued that Stone was attempting to “smear, defame and discredit” him as part of his public defense in the run-up to his trial. Corsi, who’s identified in the Stone indictment as Person 1, hasn’t been charged. Last week, Corsi sued Stone for defamation.

California Governor Gavin Newsom responded Friday to President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border to build a physical barrier there: “California will see you in court.”
In a statement, Newsom said:

President Trump is manufacturing a crisis and declaring a made-up ‘national emergency’ in order to seize power and subvert the constitution. This ’emergency’ is a national disgrace, and the blame lays solely at the feet of the President. Meanwhile, he plans to shutdown and divert funds used by California law enforcement that run counter-narcotics operations and fight drug cartels to build his wall. Our message back to the White House is simple and clear: California will see you in court.

Graham: The US is looking for allies to replace it in Syria

With the U.S. due to announce the Islamic State group is destroyed and its troops withdrawing from Syria, it is looking for allies to step in and help stabilize the region, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Friday.

Speaking at the 2019 Munich Security Conference, Graham told the assembly of world leaders that the U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, “would be coming to some of you in this room, and he will be asking for a contribution of forces to stabilize the region, post destruction of the caliphate.”

Graham called for a lean, joint military presence to enforce a safe zone that would protect American-backed Kurdish forces in Syria from Turkey, watch for the reemergence of ISIS and buy time for a Syria peace process in Geneva.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the Syrian government might have something to say about this.

Police Testing “Non-Lethal” PepperBall Weapon Despite Calls For More Transparency and Accountability

By Joe Wright

Several police departments around the U.S. have a new weapon in their arsenal: a PepperBall gun that fires marble-sized munitions filled with high-test pepper spray.

Police are insisting that this is a new less-than-lethal way of dealing with those who are armed with anything less than a gun and refuse to comply with police directives. St. Paul, Minnesota is the latest police department considering implementation of the weapon, and they have embarked on a pilot program that officials believe will reduce incidents of excessive force...

McConnell to Force Democrats to Vote for the Ridiculous Green New Deal

Last week, Rep.

One of the most absurd bills to ever be announced in Washington, the GND’s details immediately sparked a firestorm of mockery which led to Ocasio-Cortez and her people yanking an elaborate FAQ section off the internet and declaring it a distortion of the bill’s reality.

We’re not sure anyone bought that, though, and now there are several Democratic candidates for president who will be forced to explain whether or not they actually support a bill that aims to – among other things – eliminate every car, boat, and plane in America within ten years.
