    Awkward Moments 1. When Starship deploys up to 400 Starlink satellites at a time. It will be clear that the heavy cargo capability of SLS can be provided by another system for pennies on the dollar. 2. if the Lunar Starship ever docks with Gateway, the size comparison with Gateway will appear silly. Two Starships simply do...

    The Doctor Spoke He's my nephew, and he's a doctor in Maine. I don't see him often enough. Maybe I should go there on vacation this coming summer. I had thoughts of going this year but woke people and the plague kept me out. I've also had health issues of my own. Moving on... Dr. XXXX MD called. His father died many years ...

  Isn't it Interesting  Following the Saudi-led (Saudi nationals with tacit encouragement from senior Saudi officials) attack on the World Trade Center, Ashli Babbitt asked her mother to sign a waiver so that she could join the Air Force at age 17.

  Marketing If your “news” article starts out with graphic and emotional description, an emotional little story, you are being lied to, expect the whole thrust of the article to be selling you a lie. Modern advertising is designed to make you want a product regardless of whether the product has any merit or not. It will not even attem...

Enemy at the Gates

  EdB's facebook Post in the League of Deplorable Gentlemen led me to comment on Vienna, 9/11/1683,  when the barbarians were at the gates.   SEPTEMBER 11, 1683 At the Battle of Vienna, the Poles were divided into three corps: King Jan Sobieski (with his 16-year old son Jakub Ludwik) in the center, Sieniawski on his left flank, an...

  Joe, Ho, and the traitorous Milley - Blood on their Hands   Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin does not want to testify before Congress about his role in the disastrous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and if he continues to resist, even after being subpoenaed, he could face a penalty up to and including jail time. It does...

  Will his Next Medal be a Red Star? During the American Civil War there arose a class of General Officers on the side of the Union who achieved their rank not on the merit of military accomplishment or even by training but rather by knowing highly placed politicians. These men were awarded a rank in quid pro quo agreements with ...

Military Matters

  The Uncertain Roadmap We have the Time magazine piece where the oligarchs were openly bragging about election engineering. We have the general officers and bureaucrats who were bragging about lying to President Trump about troop levels in various regions to prevent or forestall drawdowns and now we've seen what General Milley is up to ...

A Few Thoughts

12
  We will soon know if California rigged another election/recall. (link) I learned that a ballot in my name arrived at my old address by mail so that I could vote in the recall election. I don't live in California, but what do you want to bet that somebody voted my ballot. I realize that's considered to be woke these days.   ...

The Early Taliban – Part Two –

25
  Continued I personally don't know when the plan was hatched, but Pakistani ISI clearly understands both their own people and the Afghans. Likely in the 1992-93 time frame they polished the plan and began to move pieces around the board. The time-tested way to uproot Muslims since the days of Mohammed. Declare a Jihad! You can't just...

    Charitable Giving A flat 10% of what I earn is given as a tithe. Sometimes it's more than that but never less. Having said that, I'm very careful and very jaded when it comes to charities and charitable organizations. I've seen how some famous tele-evangelists spend the money that they take in and they are abominations. Don't...

The Early Taliban – Part One –

  Based on your request - we'll ride the way-back machine. The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan on Christmas Eve, Dec 24, 1979, and left on Feb 15, 1989, A little over nine years later. If you read revisionist history,  the Soviet Russians were opposed by "Shi'ite and Maoist groups". I'm not saying that it's a total fabrication but at le...

Notions

    The Coming War in Africa Yes, it's kind of a map blog today - sort of. As you know, I like maps. Can Jo/Ho return to Afghanistan to fight - whoever? The military-industrial complex would like that a lot but I don't see it happening. Too much baggage. We're back in Syria but not in the sort of Big Army operation that costs ...

    The World Trade Center & Pentagon Attack Benghazi And now the Kabul Fiasco And on September 11, 2021, we still have Americans, left behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, while our filthy, corrupt administration crows its success.

      Liberals are looking after you poor rubes - Pride disguised compassion. C. S.
