Air Force Missile Test Comes With Off Kilter Explanation

Did the Air Force REALLY have to put it like THAT?

Here in America, we are getting used to the turbulence.  We are almost comfortable in the exponential nature of the nightmare around us.

You can use the snowball metaphor, or you can pontificate on the pros and cons of burning out or fading away all you like – there is no denying that a sense of impeding change is on the horizon.

Our nation’s very survival likely depends on such a monumental shift in attitude, from the top to the bottom.

No, I’m not mincing words here because things are getting real, folks.  There are no more dry runs or drills.  We’re in the 4th quarter.  The metaphorical ninth inning.

And it is for this reason that the news of a missile test by the US Air Force was forced to carry with it a bizarre disclaimer.

The U.S. Air Force has conducted a test launch of an unarmed Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.

The Air Force Global Strike Command says in a statement the missile was launched at 11:01 p.m. Tuesday to determine the accuracy and reliability of the system and such tests “are not related to any real world events.”

That last bit of information, as silly as it seems to be, was very reassuring…at least for this slightly unnerved author.

Amid missile tests by North Korea and Russia over the course of the last two years, the US military has been relatively quiet in the skies, doing more work on their defensive capabilities than their offensive ones.

Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

Published

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.” Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it. via Daily Wire: NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance. “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.” The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud. Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.” The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed. The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy. Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths…

CNN Says ‘Frustrated’ Democrats Think Trump ‘Go Back’ Comments Are ‘Brilliant’

Trump takes no prisoners.

Published

on

According to that bastion of journalistic integrity we call CNN, multiple Democrats in the House have said that there are many, many folks in their party who are frustrated with the female freshmen in Congress — known as the “Squad” — and as a result of the building tension and anger, feel Trump’s “go back” comments aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar are “politically brilliant.” Well, it’s nice to know we the people aren’t the only ones sick of the Squad. Maybe we’ll actually take action against them and work to ensure she does not get re-elected? That would be awesome. via The Daily Wire: In a report published Wednesday after the Trump rally in North Carolina — which included a headline-grabbing moment in which some in the crowd began to chant “Send her back!” in response to Trump’s criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her “vicious anti-Semitic screeds” — CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash reported on the growing frustration among some of the House Democrats over the increased prominence of the “Squad”: Reps. Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). The conversations with several Democrats, whom Tapper and Bash stress span the political spectrum, took place over the last few days — and before the North Carolina rally. “The President won this one,” one House Democrat told CNN in reference to Trump’s focus on the Squad and the Democrats vote Tuesday to condemn his “go back” comments. “What the President has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks, and the President has now identified the entire party with them.” “The President’s words and actions speak for themselves,” said another. “We need to focus on the issues that got (Democrats) here: jobs, health care … instead of the issues the President…
