Home made in China...Trade wars? lol

A home-made plane

Farmer Shi Songbo from Shangqiu city, Henan province, said that he has always had a fascination with flight and really wanted to try it for himself. To do this, Shi spent 300,000 yuan (about £30,000) crafting a 23-metre-long, 10-metre-tall airship...

oped: Well hell..kudos to the farmer...he gave it a good shot...however this gives POTUS a great talking point on trade with China...when they actually learn how to produce quality products...rather than steal ideas  (Intellectual Property)!


H R McMaster: Muslim Jihad Groups are "Really Un-Islamic" & "Irreligious"

H R McMaster: Muslim Jihad Groups are "Really Un-Islamic" & "Irreligious" (Video)
oped: General McMaster is in need of a refresher course on the Myth of Islam...making excuses will by no means bring this 7th Century Theocracy into the 21st on what it is all about will...the Catholic church went through this transformation in the 17th Century by stopping the practice of 6th century Cannon law~ separating religion from governance of public law....Islam must do this in order to move into the 21st century...Sharia law must go!
Let me help you begin the journey:

by:Tim Brown
Seriously, why is this man in the Trump administration?  From a 2014 speech on the Middle East, White House National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster stated that Islamic jihad organizations are “really un-Islamic” and are “really irreligious organizations” who cloak themselves in the “false legitimacy of Islam.”
Like Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, McMaster is engaged in whitewashing the reality of what Islam actually is and what its 1400-year track record is and what its Koran and founder taught.
Take a listen to the 2014 speech and see if this doesn't sound like BHO's taqiyya claims of Islam.
McMaster's claims about these groups being un-Islamic begin around 9:08.

See video:

"War is profoundly human," McMaster said.  "What do all of these conflicts have in common? Of course, there are a lot of differences, right? And we have to be sensitive to local differences and realities that drive conflict."
"But what you see is you see these really irreligious organizations," he continued.  "These criminal organizations, who cloak themselves in this kind of false legitimacy of Islam. But they are really un-Islamic."
"They want to portray themselves as patrons and protectors of aggrieved parties," added McMaster.  "So their strategy has been to pit communities against each other. Get them to fight each other and then come in as patron and protector and gain control of a chaotic situation and then establish control through brutality, through intimidation. Use control of populations and resources to conduct more attacks, more mass murder of innocent people to drive retribution attacks like you saw maybe these Shia militias conduct this execution in the mosque in Diyala province. That is what they want. They want this kind of cycle of violence to accelerate–to get more and more destructive."

Instead of sighting religious beliefs for the cause of their jihad, which these jihadis do quite often, McMaster mused his on thoughts of motivation behind the attacks.
"And so the drivers of conflict is what we have to remember," McMaster stated.  "What is driving a conflict? Sometimes when we look at very quick and easy military solutions to problem sets, we are not thinking about what is the nature of this conflict. What is the nature of this war? What are the human factors? Really, people fight, I think, for the same reasons the Greek philosopher and historian Thucydides identified 2,500 years ago: Fear. Honor. You might say sense of honor. And interest. So understanding those human dimensions and being able to affect them is important, and we have to remember that."

Really?  He's comparing a Greek philosopher to the ideology of those who follow Muhammed?
No wonder this man is in opposition to everything that President Donald Trump wants to accomplish.
He isn't even on the same page with who the enemies of America are.
Then again, he does have a history with a George Soros funded group and has his own "Huma Abedin" in Dina Habib Powell to help further sanitize the religion of pieces.
He is defended by designated terror organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and fires those who have done their homework on Islam and jihad while allowing known liars and disinformation agents to maintain their top security clearance.

McMaster is bad.  He's bad for the Trump administration, and he's bad for America.

The Truth About Robert E. Lee That Liberals Hope You Never Hear
oped: The total chaos we are seeing now is being perpetrated by the Progressive Party...the new name for CPUSA...they have infiltrated and taken over the DNC as well as Federal Appeal Courts and the school systems including most Universities...they have dumbed down the students making them useful idiots.(protestors/rioters)
What needs to be done is educate the electorate on the truth "Facts are a Bitch" it makes the looney left melt like the "Wicked Witch" in the classic film..."The Wizard of Oz"
Here let me help you: 

The removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee was the flashpoint that brought white supremacists to Charlottesville, Virginia, and reignited a national debate over Confederate monuments. But what do most Americans know about the Confederate general?
Not enough, says George Rasley, editor of Conservative HQ — especially racists want to use Lee as a symbol of white supremacy and liberals want to see him erased from American history. In a Conservative HQ n op-ed titled “Misusing Robert E. Lee,” Rasley argues that both sides in the debate over Lee’s legacy miss that he opposed slavery and helped end the Civil War before it turned into a bloody guerrilla war.

Knowing Lee’s place in history is important, particularly as the left seeks to use him as a symbol of division. Progressives know that Lee has many defenders — and they also know that conservatives who stand up for Lee’s memory can be falsely painted as apologists for slavery and the old order of the Confederacy.

Yet, few involved in the debate actually know Lee’s complicated history.
Offered a position as the commander of the Union forces, Rasley points out, “Lee refused the command on the grounds that he was a Virginian and owed his first allegiance to the state he believed was a sovereign entity with the right to stay in or leave the Union as it saw fit. He would, he said, not make war on the Union, but he would defend the state of his birth.”
However, when Virginia seceded, the general felt his sympathies residing with his home state. “I shall never bear arms against the Union, but it may be necessary for me to carry a musket in the defense of my native state, Virginia, in which case I shall not prove recreant to my duty,” he said.

As for his feelings on slavery, Rasley notes that “(w)hile Lee espused the paternalistic attitudes many Nineteenth Century Americans felt toward Africans, it certainly wasn’t because he believed slavery was just.” In fact, what Lee said about slavery may surprise a number of people who aren’t familiar with Lee’s views on the matter…

“There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil,” Lee wrote back in 1856, in a letter written in response to a speech given by then-President Franklin Pierce.
Lee’s views on race may not be ones we entertain today, but few if any Americans — even those that we rightly hail as heroes of the emancipation — held opinions we consider appropriate on the matter. As for why he fought for the South, Lee simply believed the United States was, as Rasley says,  “an association of sovereign states that could, if they chose, leave it or dissolve it.” After all, as the Declaration of Independence notes, “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.” Lee believed his state — and the rest of the South — was simply following the tenets of one of our founding documents.

However, Rasley argues that “it isn’t what Lee did before and during the Civil War that makes him such an important figure in American history — and one that should be honored — it is what he did after the Civil War that earned him the memorials erected to his memory and a place in history that should be honored by all.”

“When Lee surrendered at Appomattox he also signed a parole document swearing upon his honor not to bear arms against the United States or to ‘tender aid to its enemies.’ Lee’s surrender and his immediate parole were essential in preventing the Civil War from continuing as a destructive guerrilla war that would have continued to rend the country indefinitely.”
Lee spent his retirement as the president of Washington College in Virginia (which would be renamed as Washington & Lee) and would urge reconciliation between the North and the South. In his public letters, he urged “all should unite in honest efforts to obliterate the effects of war and to restore the blessings of peace.”

Does this sound like the kind of man who would urge belligerent white nationalists to violence over a statue of him? Does this sound like the kind of man who would tolerate those who would give succor to the enemies of the United States in the reprehensible, intimidatory way that the vomitous cretins who held aloft the flag of Nazi Germany in Charlottesville this past Saturday did? Does this sound like a man who would support domestic terrorism?

No. You may not agree with the decisions that Robert E. Lee made or the views that he held, but let us remember that he spent the rest of his life atoning for the war and his views weren’t just his own but those of his era. He was a man who was opposed to slavery and wanted to bind the wounds that the war caused.
The liberal media wants to make Lee the avatar of the abominable rabble that descended upon Charlottesville and left three people dead in its wake. What they hope America never hears is who he really was.

Yes, some racists and bigots are in favor of keeping Confederate monuments. Nobody is denying that. We believe they are in the minority. The vast majority of people who want to want to keep these statues wish to honor our history and the men who played a part in it. Let us all turn away from the despicable ideologies we saw on display in Virginia this weekend — but let us also not let the media pretend that those ideologies are what the debate over Confederate monuments is about.
Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter with your thoughts on Robert E. Lee.

Protesters start to DIG UP body of Confederate general in Memphis 

Where does it end? It never ends 
Activists took a shovel  to the ground over the remains of Nathan Bedford Forrest ,a Lt General in the Confederate States Army...
A group of protesters who want the body of an alleged Ku Klux Klan leader removed from their city have broken the soil over the grave. 
The campaigners claim it has taken officials in Memphis, Tennessee, too long to exhume Nathan Bedford Forrest - who was a lieutenant general in the Confederate States Army.
They also want the statue of the soldier on a horse on the burial site to be removed. The rebel cavalryman, who died in 1877, has been buried in the city's Health Sciences Park since 1904.

When they show up at protests dressed and covered (head to toe) in their battle uniforms carrying baseball bats ,whipping sticks, helmets and shields they should be immediately arrested and prosecuted for carrying deadly weapons, unlawful assembly,inciting a riot and violation of 18 USC 2384-85 (seditious conspiracy/treason) 

Law enforcement across the nation from local,state and federal need to get on the same page and stop this illegal ands ifs or buts about it!

Lincoln Memorial Vandalized by Thugs with Red Spray Paint

I was in D.C. a few months ago to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and it was nothing shy of amazing. I had a night to visit some of the monuments in the breathtaking city and I was nearly in tears at the overwhelmed sense of beauty I saw and the pride I felt for my country.
Today I am overwhelmed again, but this time with sadness and anger. What good comes from vandalizing the Lincoln Memorial, for one? For two, do these idiots not know that Lincoln literally worked to free the slaves? This just goes to show, they aren’t protesting and rioting because their feelings are hurt. Nope, they are doing it to see if anyone is going to try to stop them.

NBC Washington reports:

"The words “F— law” were found written in red spray paint early Tuesday on a pillar at the monument that overlooks the Capitol building and National Mall, NPS said Tuesday afternoon. The graffiti was found about 4:30 a.m.
“It’s frustrating, not only for the Park Service but certainly for the visitors that come here, that anyone would vandalize any of our iconic memorials. Especially the Lincoln Memorial. Especially with everything that’s going on now — the calls for unity and people to come together,” NPS spokesman Mike Litterst said. 

“To go to the site of the memorial to Abraham Lincoln and do that, that’s disappointing,” he continued. 
Crews are working to remove the vandalization, which they expect to take about a week to do so.
People took to Twitter to express their feelings on the incident: 

💥 Lincoln Memorial vandalized with red spray paint.

No memorial is safe now from & the Left.
Left wing terrorist Fascists have vandalized Lincoln Memorial.

It's taking a long time for Democrat leaders to condemn this hateful act.
Someone vandalized the Lincoln Memorial.

Do you know WHY?

Why? What does ANY of this solve? Such unbelievable lack of respect. It's so pathetic. "Lincoln Memorial Vandalized"

Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee

People on both sides of the aisle need to wake up and smell the coffee...was this about a alleged offensive statue marking history?...Nope this was all about a law suit filed by the ACLU which was founded by the CPUSA during the 1920's....and is financed mostly by George Soros in todays time.
They filed this law suit for the same reason they always file law cause protests/riots... they play both sides of the spectrum... the Alt Right and Alt Left ~both useful idiots...the name of the game is to file a law suit ,organize protests, then stir the proverbial pot to cause as much chaos as possible.

This is akin to ancient Egypt...remove a Pharo then remove all history of by placing the chosen one center stage covering all remnants of the past Pharo. 

Just follow the money it always leads to George Soros...the Nazi Collaborator WWII...a Jew who stole from his own people while working for the Nazis as a young SS Agent...thats where he started his fortune!

Japanese Intelligence Analysts Just Discovered Some Alarming News About North Korea

This isn’t a game anymore.
North Korea continues to taunt the world into a nuclear World War III.
And it just became even more disturbing because Japanese intelligence discovered that North Korea has technology that no one thought they had.
Kim Jong Un is poking the world bear right now.
He might be crazy by nearly everybody’s standards, but he’s certainly not dumb.
Jong Un seems to be defying several nations’ wishes while simultaneously taunting them into making the first strike.
Why would North Korea do this?
Well, one theory is that they’re trying to force China into choosing sides.  If they can fool their biggest ally into thinking that they’re the victims, North Korea thinks they’ll have leverage.
The only problem is that China was one of the 15 nations who agreed to sanction against North Korea.
But instead of being furious at their ally, they take it out on the United States – and specifically President Trump – by threatening to attack Guam.
And why would they attack Guam with nuclear weapons?
They have developed technology to miniaturize nuclear weapons to send with missiles that have a range farther than any nation had expected.
Breitbart reports:
“A grim milestone appears to be passing, as both U.S. and Japanese intelligence analysts believe North Korea has developed the technology to miniaturize nuclear warheads and fit them inside long-range missiles, years ahead of schedule.
Japan’s annual defense review, released on Tuesday morning, described the threat from North Korea’s nuclear missile program as “acute.”
“It is conceivable that North Korea’s nuclear weapons program has already considerably advanced and it is possible that North Korea has already achieved the miniaturization of nuclear weapons and has acquired nuclear warheads,” the white paper warned.
“Since last year, when it forcibly implemented two nuclear tests and more than 20 ballistic missile launches, the security threats have entered a new stage.”
Accordingly, the BBC reported that Japan has begun its first civilian air-raid drills since the end of World War II, evidently stepping up a program revealed earlier this year which taught civilians in certain towns how to deal with an errant North Korean test missile (or perhaps a weapon fired at American military installations in Japan) falling in a populated area.
“We’re told to hit the ground or hide behind the wall, but will that really help? Will that really protect us if a missile really falls here, I wonder?” asked one Japanese citizen interviewed by the BBC.
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday afternoon that U.S. analysts at the Defense Intelligence Agency reached similar conclusions about North Korea’s capabilities in a confidential assessment prepared last month.
The DIA report also raised the official estimate of North Korea’s nuclear inventory considerably, from the handful of bombs hypothesized by most earlier analyses to almost 60 nuclear devices.
The report’s authors believe some of these devices are small enough to be delivered by intercontinental ballistic missile.
As the Washington Post notes, North Korea claims it has successfully tested such miniaturized devices, although their claims were greeted with widespread skepticism at the time.
The missing piece of the ICBM puzzle for North Korea would appear to be reliable heat shielding to protect the warheads from re-entry, a technology Pyongyang is clearly working hard to develop.
A new poll from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs released on Monday found 90 percent of Americans “reject the idea that North Korea should be allowed to produce nuclear weapons,” 75 percent see the North Korean nuclear program as a “critical threat facing the United States,” and 62 percent would support using American troops to defend South Korea from a North Korean attack.”
Kim Jong Un’s actions are incomprehensible because he knows every nation would be against him, and yet he still persists.
It makes one think that he has ulterior deceptive motives.

"Big Trouble in Little China"...aka NOKO

Yeppers this satire just about sums it up...Jack Burton{Donald Trump} a simple man who doesn't believe in ghosts or majic until he is swept into a mind-boggling adventure deep within Chinatown's mysterious underworld . Burton with his pal Wang Chi {General Kelly} are trying to rescue our kidnapped country! 
It may be confusing... laced with humor... but in the end Jack wins!

Former Navy SEAL: If Trump is railroaded out of office there will be ‘gruesome massacre’

Nowhere here does this say innocent civilians, or a legit impeachment. On the contrary, this speaks specifically to an illegal silent coup by corrupt officials using false charges, as has leaked out by Clinton cronies lately. 

From Facebook
Anything else is a different scenario entirely. Honor our Constitution! Keep it straight.
Americans, Patriots, pray for our nation. Pray for our President.
I’m hearing serious rumblings of a hostile, illegal coup against our democratically elected President by seditious, deep-state subversives funded by Soros & other globalists. Very disturbing.

Patriots, this would be nothing less than an act of war against the American people. It would be the removal of our boldest defender & last possibility of maintaining our protective Constitution. Under the boot of globalists, life as we know it, would immediately decline to the model that suits the globalist interest – Marxist/Socialist/Communist. They get complete control, you get zero. Freedom, Gone! Liberty, Gone! This agenda is evil and simply cannot be allowed, at ANY cost.
Like ALL military, law enforcement and government officials, I took an oath to defend our Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. By abandoning the rule of law and conducting a coup against the President & policies WE THE PEOPLE elected, they have made themselves enemies of the United States.

Under threat, ALL patriots, whether civilian, law enforcement, government, or military, have the duty to defend our Constitution against such enemies. Some speculate on “civil war”. I readily recognize a much more sobering reality: Anti-American subversives involved in ANY WAY in an unconstitutional coup against our President will be run down and executed immediately by the world’s most supreme warriors. There will be nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide, no mercy, no sense of humor. Harsh examples will be made. My prediction is it will be a gruesome massacre. Why? Because one side in this conflict has 8 Trillion bullets & the other side doesn’t know which bathroom to use.

It will likely only take a few hours. Lessons will be learned. History will take note. Order restored.
Patriots, We The American People stand united as one, against ALL enemies. We are peace-loving people who abide by the rule of law. Prepare yourselves in case this ridiculous insanity actually gets played out and the rule of law goes out the window under their gross miscarriage of our legal process. Shaking my head…
United We Stand! At the ready. USA! ???

Update: What It’s Like to Fly—And Stall—In the Icon A5 Plane

oped; Indeed see :


About 20 minutes into my test flight aboard the Icon A5, the cockpit alarm started blaring. The angle-of-attack (AoA) display in front of me, an ingeniously designed gauge that seemed so delightful moments ago, was signaling doom. We were in the red. We had no lift. We were about to stall, the point at which an airplane ceases to be an airplane and simply becomes a massive chunk of dead weight ready to drop out of the sky.
We were at full throttle, and pilot Craig “Bowser” Bowers, Icon’s VP of sales and a former Marine F/A-18 Hornet pilot, had the stick held at its full aft position. If I could have seen anything below me at that point, I would have admired our view about 1,000 feet above the Hudson River. I would have taken a look at Fort Tryon to my right and the Ross Dock picnic area to my left, one last look for all of eternity. I’d likely see those things soon enough, spiraling around me as we hurtled toward the water.

But right now, I could not see the ground, even though my window was wide open. All I could see was the sky, and all I can remember is the high-pitched whine of that alarm.
And then the strangest thing happened: nothing. We didn’t go into a spin. Instead, the plane just kind of floated, nose up, in midair. An airborne Wile E. Coyote, refusing to look down, just hovering. It only lasted a few seconds, even if it felt like forever. But there was no spinning, no free-fall toward the ground. In fact, Bowers even turned the plane left and right, and we actually gained a bit of altitude during the stall—the opposite of what happens to every other airplane on the planet.

“The purpose of the demo is not to encourage this kind of flying, but to demonstrate that the A5 has a remarkable safety feature that helps keep the aircraft flying and controllable even when the pilot has made the mistake of inadvertently stalling the aircraft,” says Icon Aircraft CEO and Founder Kirk Hawkins. “Most aircraft when held in a stall, even at full power, will enter into a rapid descent which can degrade into a loss of control or a spin under certain conditions.”

According to Icon, that floating-in-midair trick could have continued indefinitely—just as long as the plane’s engine didn’t overheat. Rotax, which manufactures the A5’s 100-horsepower engine—which drives the plane’s three-blade pusher propeller at a top speed of about 120mph—advises against using full power for extended periods.
The Icon A5 may react very differently to a stall, but recovering from one is standard operating procedure. Bowers eased up on the stick, causing the nose of the plane to dip, the aircraft to pick up airspeed, and we were back on our way up the Hudson instead of shit creek.
What makes the A5’s carbon-fiber frame spin-resistant isn’t any one thing, but a combination of design elements that have been in development for the better part of a decade. According to Icon, the A5 required an FAA weight exemption for the Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) class to nail the spin-resistant design.

They needed bigger wings with several unique elements—stall-resistant wing cuffs, a bit of a twist in the contour of the wing, and differently designed airfoils on different parts of the wing—and that required a larger tail. That, in turn, required a stronger tail boom. All that added up to a larger and heavier airframe, one that clocks in with a maximum gross weight (that is, fully loaded with passengers and equipment) of 1,510 pounds rather than the 1,430-pound maximum gross weight of other amphibious LSAs.
“I wish I could give you one magic bullet or a simple, easy to understand list of elements,” Hawkins says. “It’s a very complex and highly integrated problem requiring the entire aircraft to be designed with this goal in mind. There is no band aid or simple add-on to make an airplane spin resistant. It’s far more of a careful recipe, unique to each airplane, that uses many common tools… airfoil design, wing shape, wing devices, tail shape, fuselage factors, control surfaces.”

There are a lot of exceptional things about the Icon A5 beyond the light sport aircraft’s spin-resistant frame. The other wonderful things have been said so much that they are now cliches. In terms of size and operation, the small plane is as close as we’ve come to an honest-to-goodness, on-the-market flying car. The propellor is behind you, which means you have a beautiful, unobstructed, wide-angle view in front of you. Think about all the money you’ll save on baggage fees. You can even open the side windows. That means you can do that thing where you stick your hand out the window and feel the lift on it like an airplane wing—this time in a real airplane.


But the A5 is also like a flying speedboat; the amphibious craft doesn’t just take off and land on water, but it also handles like a jetski in the drink. On the water, you can carve corners with ease.
The A5 is 23 feet long, which is about the size of a ski boat, according to Hawkins. It has wings that fold back so you can hitch it to your trailer for a trip to the lake. Those folding wings are also handy for storage; when it’s folded up, the plane is about eight feet tall, so if your garage is really long, it’ll probably fit in there. You can fill the A5’s 20-gallon tank with high-octane automotive gas as well as aviation fuel. Its instrument panel has been stripped down and streamlined, simplified from the ground up to accommodate casual and novice pilots.

According to Icon, it also handles a bit differently than other aircrafts. During our short test flight in the A5, I was allowed to steer the plane for a bit as we sailed above the Hudson. I hadn’t flown before, and I was amazed at how little effort it took to turn the plane left and right. It wasn’t finicky, and there was plenty of feedback on the stick; you just didn’t have to muscle the controls to steer the plane. Bowers instructed me to grip the stick with three fingers of pressure and gently steer the plane; gripping the controls like a joystick with a clenched fist would have produced stronger, jerkier movements.

“There’s a fair amount of variability among aircraft,” says Hawkins. “Some require high control force inputs, while at the other end of the spectrum, others may be hyper-sensitive, even ‘twitchy,’ which can be unsettling to a pilot. The A5 was designed to have appropriate control force input and responsiveness to give user confidence when flying it.” According to Icon, the A5 is designed to feel smooth and responsive down to its cables, pulleys, bell cranks, and pushrods that connect its controls, as well as the materials used in the bearings of those systems.
Although the plane has a range of more than 300 miles on a full tank, the two-seater isn’t really built for hopping from New York to Boston or Cincinnati to Cleveland for that afternoon business meeting. In the same way a convertible sports car isn’t made for running groceries or family road trips, this is a plane made for the sheer enjoyment of flying around.

According to Hawkins, the A5 is also built with the “democratization of flying” in mind. That concept goes beyond the Icon A5’s safety mechanisms and car-like instrument dashboard; it also has to do with the license you need to fly the A5. In order to pilot Icon’s little plane—or any of the 130 or so light sport aircraft available—you need a Sport Pilot License. Qualifying for that type of license requires about half the flight time you need to get a private pilot license—a minimum of 20 hours of flight time as opposed to 40 hours—but it also comes with more restrictions. For example, you can only fly during the day, you can only fly two-seaters, you can only fly in nice weather with at least three miles of visibility, and you’re limited to flights up to 10,000 above mean sea level or 2,000 feet above ground level.
With a Sport Pilot license, you’re only allowed to fly in Class E or G airspace, and you need permission from a foreign aviation authority to fly outside of the United States. Dan Johnson, a longtime recreational airplane reviewer who now concentrates on Light Sport Aircraft reviews, says that if you follow the book, the sky is your oyster.

“Using a Light Sport Aircraft is truly not that much different than taking out your motorcycle for a ride,” says Johnson. “If you stay out of high air traffic areas, particularly major airline airports (in B airspace) an A5 pilot will enjoy great freedom… If you follow the [FAA rules], you can largely just go fly. If you wish to increase your allowed functions, you get with an approved instructor, take additional training, get him/her to sign your logbook, and you can do the added things. It’s really a pretty free system but with some constraints.”


The FAA doesn’t seem too concerned at the prospect of hundreds of newbie pilots flying these vehicles around willy-nilly. “It is the responsibility of the aircraft owner to maintain the aircraft in an airworthiness condition for safe flight,” the FAA public affairs office told WIRED. Otherwise, some stiff penalties may apply.
“A $1,000 fine per violation is possible, and in more severe cases a suspension or loss of certificate,” says Johnson. “Very few pilots are ever charged with such violations. Greater determining factors are peer pressure plus insurance and tort liability.”
So even if you’re a responsible and licensed Sport Pilot, have somewhere between $189,000 to $250,000 to spend on an A5, and have a huge garage, your dreams of flying your own amphibious toy may need to wait a bit longer. According to Icon, the production facility in Vacaville will start production slowly, as the company wants to solve any unforeseen problems before producing the plane at high volume. They hope to have 100 airplanes shipped by the end of 2016 and around 550 A5s in the land, sea, and air by the end of 2017.

Icon also has more than 1,500 preorders to fulfill. If you order an A5 today, you’ll likely have to wait till 2018 to get it. Think of it as a holding pattern. Or a mid-air hover.

Fox in the Henhouse: Can John Kelly Be Trusted?

While some of President Trump’s supporters are happy to see the last of the establishment-loyal Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff, others are not so thrilled with the man who is taking his place. Gen. John Kelly, by all accounts, was doing a bang-up job as director of Homeland Security, and he might bring the discipline that the White House needs right now. On the other hand, a couple of recent stories shed light on some major concerns about the man who will now control Trump’s day-to-day agenda. Kelly may not be beholden to the Republican textbook…but is he loyal to the ideology of the president he serves?
According to a recent story in The New Yorker, Gen. Kelly spoke two weeks ago at a private meeting with current and former members of the U.S. national security community in Aspen, Colorado. At that meeting, say sources, Kelly said that he had spoken long and often with the president about his proposed border wall and was fairly certain he had persuaded Trump to back off his campaign promise to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

“Instead,” the piece stated, “the use of sophisticated monitoring technology, air surveillance, and fencing could secure the border with what Trump could start calling a ‘barrier.’
“To the officials in the room, it was a fascinating admission,” The New Yorker continued. “Kelly seemed to be suggesting that he was one of the few people who might be able to tame Trump and get him to back off some of his most cartoonish policy ideas, even the ones that were core campaign promises.” 

The other story comes from CNN, so take it with a grain of salt. According to the network, two sources said that after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Gen. Kelly was so outraged by the insulting, long-distance method of the firing that he called Comey and said he was thinking about resigning himself in protest.
From CNN:
“John was angry and hurt by what he saw and the way (Comey) was treated,” one of the sources said.
Comey learned of his dismissal on May 9 from televisions tuned to the news as he was addressing the workforce at the FBI office in Los Angeles, law enforcement sources said at the time. Comey made a joke about it to lighten the mood and called his office to get confirmation.
Comey, who took Kelly’s call while traveling back from Los Angeles to Washington, responded to Kelly by telling him not to resign, one of the sources said.
The sources said Comey and Kelly are not close friends but that they had a professional relationship and a deep mutual respect for each other.
Are these red flags? We’ll wait to reserve judgement. Trump doesn’t necessarily benefit by surrounding himself with yes-men, so it doesn’t concern us that Kelly differs from the president on this policy or that one. It merely raises the question of whether or not Kelly is truly “Team Trump.” The president MUST have loyal supporters in the White House if he is to overcome the astonishing opposition to his agenda. If Kelly can be a voice of reason to counteract Trump’s tendency towards pure, instinctual reaction, that’s a good thing. If, on the other hand, he is there to stifle the president with tiresome echoes of stagnant deep-state thought, the administration is in no better shape than it was last week.

Lesbian Couple Chemically Castrates Their Adopted 11-Year-Old Boy

Lesbians adopting little boys only to castrate them? Six years ago, a lesbian couple in California thought it would be appropriate to let their child decide that he wanted gender reassignment surgery. Yes, you heard that right. Why, you ask? 

According to JoeForAmerica:
[Adoptive guardians] Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel’s reasoning was that children with ‘gender identity disorder’ forced to postpone transitioning could face a higher risk of suicide… That’s bull – they flat out adopted for the express purpose of castration and we all know it. Let’s call this what it is: Disfiguring, mutilating, chemically castrating a boy – and hoping to get a girl out of it. It gets worse, trust me – keep reading..
The ‘parents’ claim it was settled science because of something the child said when he was only three-years-old! … Well, here he / she? is now:

The results are not totally in, of course – but it’s important to update and follow this story along because it’s not the first and won’t be the last time misguided and horrific monsters are LEGALLY allowed to mutilate a child because of an agenda. That’s right I said it (using best Levin voice)..
Thomas’ transition into a make-pretend girl began at age eight. His guardians inflicted hormone suppressants to prevent him from developing a male voice, broad shoulders, and facial hair. If this doesn’t qualify as child abuse, the statutes need to be rewritten.
The real sad fact is, you can find a doctor to do just about anything for money – we’ve seen plenty of disasters from ill-advised contemporary plastic surgery – and trying to change little boys into girls is no different: Where there’s money and an agenda – a doctor will be found.

As if that alone was not obnoxious enough, these two sociopaths say they let him decide who he was sexually at the ripe old age of 3. WTF?
Wake up! What are we doing to our children? Where are the Christians of America? How different is this from the WWII experiments on humans we all agreed could NEVER LET HAPPEN AGAIN? Fact is, you cannot change a boy into a girl and vice-versa – end of story. Any physician, biologist or scientist who isn’t completely mad will tell you that – yet we allow these horrors to happen? 


Urgent Petition to Donald Trump

Army 1LT Clint Lorance: Sentenced to Prison for Protecting His Unit ...

Dear Fellow Patriot,

President Obama refused to pardon an innocent U.S. soldier before he left office.

Now I'm asking you to sign this PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE urging President Trump to do what Obama refused to: send this innocent soldier home where he belongs!

In July, 2012, 1LT Clint Lorance was sent to Afghanistan to replace a platoon leader who was seriously wounded in a Taliban attack. On his third day on the job, Clint and his men were on patrol when a U.S. helicopter radioed that a motorcycle was sitting outside of the village near a road only used by the Taliban. When the motorcycle started gunning toward the platoon, 1LT Lorance ordered his marksman to fire.

Two of the riders were killed. The other was captured in the village, where days earlier a U.S. soldier was shot in the neck. Those of us who have been stationed in Afghanistan know the tactics and actions of the enemy.

Without a doubt, these men posed a threat to Clint's platoon. And as the commanding officer, Clint knew he was responsible for getting every single one of his soldiers back to base alive.

Yet our own government didn't agree. 1LT Lorance was convicted of murder and sentenced to 20 years at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. And even though the government withheld critical evidence during the trial that could have proven Clint's innocence, the three judges on the Army Court of Criminal Appeals recently ruled that Clint will stay in prison.
Now you know why I'm asking you to follow this link to sign the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION right away.

You see, it is customary for U.S. Presidents to grant high-profile pardons just before leaving office. However, when Obama's term came to an end on January 20, 2017, he refused to commute Clint's sentence.
  • Instead, Obama did commute the sentence of traitor Bradley Manning, who leaked sensitive national security information and put our troops at risk.
  • He did commute the sentence of Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was serving 50 years in prison for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government and whose group killed four Americans in a New York City bombing in 1975.
  • And of course he pardoned and commuted the sentences of hundreds of criminal cocaine and heroin dealers.
As a combat veteran, I'm disgusted that Obama let traitors, drug dealers and murderers out of prison early – while 1LT Lorance is left to serve a 20-year sentence for protecting his men on the battlefield! But now that Donald Trump has taken office, you and I have a new chance to finally free 1LT Lorance.

Will you follow this link to sign the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION to Donald Trump right now?

My friend, Clint Lorance signed up to serve his country and risked his life on the battlefield to protect your freedom. When his men were threatened, he did exactly what our military trained him to do. As a combat veteran with 22 years of service, I can't turn my back on this young soldier. And I hope you won't either.

That's why I'm writing you this letter on behalf of the United American Patriots (UAP), an organization founded by another combat veteran who knows just like I do that you can't second-guess our young men for their split-second actions behind enemy lines.

UAP provides legal defenses for soldiers like Clint who have been unfairly accused of crimes for their actions in deadly combat zones. In fact, they're assisting 6 other wrongly accused soldiers who are sitting behind bars at Fort Leavenworth, in addition to funding 2 separate efforts to free Clint – a new appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces and of course this Presidential Pardon campaign.

But as a non-profit organization, UAP doesn't receive a dime of federal funding. Instead, they depend on the big hearts of American patriots like you who support them and their mission. UAP has calculated the cost of filing all the paperwork for Clint's official pardon request, this Petition campaign and the new appeal to be more than $875,000. But I don't think you can put a price tag on this young man's freedom!

I'm not asking you to write a check for $875,000. But I am asking you to make a tax-deductible gift of $31 after you sign the Petition.

Every penny raised will support UAP's efforts to collect millions of Petitions on Clint's behalf – and cover the legal fees for other innocent soldiers – so if you are in the position to send a larger tax-deductible gift in the amount of $50, $100, $500 or more, I pray you will.

1LT Clint Lorance served our country honorably and courageously for 10 years. He does not deserve to be treated as a cold-blooded murderer for doing his job.

Will you take just 30 seconds right now to fight for Clint's freedom by signing the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE and make your best tax-deductible contribution of $31 or more.

On behalf of 1LT Lorance and his family, his legal team and UAP, thank you in advance for your support. Steadfast and loyal,

LTC(R) Allen West
Congressman (2011-2013)

P.S. If you agree that it's time for President Trump to do what Barack Obama refused to – and send this innocent American soldier home to his family! – then please sign the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE right away and make your best tax-deductible donation of $31 or more to United American Patriots.

Lest we not forget those who lead the way to modern combat tactics...were cool before Seals were cool...all is good though...

News Obama Humiliated in front of the World As Jeff Foxworthy Calls Him Out, Internet Goes Wild!

Jeff Foxworthy is well known comedian – loved by millions.
His first two comedy albums went Platinum three times over, and his comedy books are best sellers.
But Jeff Foxworthy is also a conservative and a patriot. He supports all that is great about America, and is tired of how liberals are ripping America apart.

Barack Obama has changed America into an entitlement society, where people don’t want to work hard.
That’s why Jeff Foxworthy used Facebook to explain EXACTLY what he thinks about Barack Obama and the state our country is in.

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. 

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. 

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

These comments make us laugh, but it’s also a sad statement of just how far America has fallen. This is an important reminder of just how important the 2016 presidential election was. Finally we have a REAL leader in the White House again!
PETITION: 100,000 Signatures to Force Congress to Use Obamacare!


Hollywood Freaks After Trump Declares No Transgendered People to Serve in Military: ‘You just pissed off the wrong community.’


Trump has made it official, via his Twitter account, that the transgender community no longer will be allowed to serve in the military. Making an announcement Wednesday, President Trump has said the United States will not “accept or allow” transgender people in our military. He said American forces “must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory” and that the trans community would be a burden to our armed forces. In a typical Trump move, he made this major policy announcement on his Twitter account in a series of posts.

He says he made the decision after discussing the issue with generals and military experts, which he left anonymous. “After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military,” Mr. Trump wrote. “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

The sweeping policy decision reverses the gradual transformation of the military under President Barack Obama, whose administration announced last year that transgender people could serve openly in the military. Mr. Obama’s defense secretary, Ashton B. Carter, also opened all combat roles to women and appointed the first openly gay Army secretary. It was not clear what prompted Mr. Trump’s announcement on Wednesday. In June, the administration delayed a decision on whether to allow transgender recruits to join the military. At the time, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said an extra six months would give military leaders a chance to review its potential impact. The president’s announcement came amid a debate on Capitol Hill over the Obama-era practice.... Source:


Gaga Attacks Trump Trans Ban, Then Has Bad Encounter With Iraq Vet

Lady Gaga thought she was making a great point when she tweeted President Donald Trump about his announcement that he wants to ban transgenders from serving in the military. She was stopped in her tracks when Iraq War veteran J.R. Salzman fired back at Gaga using her own words against her. Epic!
The president announced Wednesday morning that he was banning those who identify as transgender from serving in any capacity in our armed forces. His tweets became a trending topic and everyone on Twitter seemed to have something to say about the president’s message.
Lady Gaga was one of those people, and she thought she would try and prove a point to the president. Instead, she made his point for him. Salzman quickly called her out on her ignorance.

“@Potus Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?” Gaga’s tweet read.

xoxo, Gaga @ladygaga
. @POTUS Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?
The tweet was retweeted thousands of times and had over 41,000 “loves” as a result of so many liberals thinking Gaga was right on target with her statement. It’s true that she was correct with her statistics. According to Williams Institute, 45 percent of 18-24 year old transgender people indeed have attempted suicide. 

While her stats were correct, her logic was off base. Her tweet earned her a lot of replies, but the award for most epic response goes to Salzman. “So your solution is to give them a weapon, and send them off into combat where lives depend on mental and emotional stability under stress?” he said. 

So your solution is to give them a weapon, and send them off into combat where lives depend on mental and emotional stability under stress? 
Gaga no doubt wished she had just kept her mouth shut.
What Salzman said is critical for those on each side of the aisle to understand. With such an identity crisis as transgenders go through, there are mental issues there that need to be addressed.

A person under the emotional turmoil of questioning his gender is not emotionally ready to handle to stresses of war. And, as Gaga, pointed out, those who identify as transgender are more likely to have a slew of emotional and mental problems.
As war veteran David French from The National Review wrote, “The military has to make hard choices on the basis of odds, probabilities, and centuries of hard-earned experience. Our national existence — ultimately, our very civilization — depends on getting those answers right.”
It’s a great day when celebrities who pretend they know everything get owned by an average citizen — and there was no one better than Salzman to do it.
