1…………> S400 Missile Defense: Danger Ahead
How dangerous is the newest Russian S400 Missile System? Most importantly, it supports four different missiles – the very long range 40N6E-series (250 miles), the long range 48N6 (160 miles), the 9M96e2 (75 miles) and the short range 9m96e (25 miles). By comparison the US Patriot system supports only one interceptor missile with a range of 60 miles.
The 9M96E2 is the dangerous component of the S-400 system since it can fly at Mach 15 (around 15,000 feet/sec or 11,500 mi/h), can engage targets as low as 15 feet off the ground, and it can maneuver pulling up to 20 Gs. It is designed to knock out penetrating aircraft and missiles flying “off the deck” or just above ground and neutralize cruise missiles.
So is no wonder that Saudi Arabia’s and Turkey purchased the S-400 anti-aircraft Triumph anti-missile system from Russia in a major blow to the United States and its European allies.
In addition the S-400 has optional acquisition radars designed to defeat modern stealth aircraft such as the F-22 and the F-35. They work by operating in multiple frequency bands including both VHF and L bands that can “see” stealth-protected fighters.
2…………..> Cruise Missiles: US Icebreakers
The US Coast Guard is seeking to equip icebreaker vessels operating near the Arctic Ocean with cruise missiles for the first time as US hopes to get ahead in the new “Cold War” brewing in the world’s coldest waters, a policy decision confirmed by Coast Guard Commandant Paul Zukunft that is looking for new icebreakers capable of storing and firing heavy weapons.
Speaking before a House panel, Zukunft stated “We need to look differently… at what an ice breaker does. We need to reserve space, weight, and power if we need to strap a cruise missile package on it.”
Weaponized icebreakers are desirable, according to Zukunft, “in the event this world changes in the next five, 10, even 15 years from now… you can’t project out the status quo.”
3…………..> On A Warpath: Uncle Soros
Infamous Hungarian-American billionaire and philanthropist George Soros said he feels “more than ready to fight back” against the ideology of “nationalism.”
“It’s déjà vu all over again with one big change — the dominant ideology in the world now is nationalism,” Soros, who is largely seen as the adept of “globalism” claimed, dubbing Russia “the resurgent power” and warning that the EU is “on the verge of a breakdown.”
Yet he appears to have a wide range of very powerful enemies as the statements below may attest to.
“The only network which operates in mafia ways, which is not transparent… in Hungary is the Soros network,” said Hungarian PM Viktor Orban “National Consultation 2017,” targeting dozens of the magnate-linked non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the country.
Despite heavy criticism from Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and American conservatives, Mr.Soros believes that Russia is behind much of the attacks against him over his support to the Georgian so-called Rose revolution of 2003, leading to Russian Prosecutor General’s Office banning the “Open Society Foundations” and its affiliates as “undesirable groups,” threatening the country’s national security.
4………….> The Mongols vs DOJ:
“Gangs that conspire to spread illegal drugs like methamphetamine and lethal opioids, extort legitimate businesses, and wage violence on our fellow Americans will be held accountable by the Department of Justice. Last year, we secured the convictions of more than 1,200 gang members, and, as this case makes clear, we are not slowing down. I want to thank the ATF and all of our incredible state, county, and local law enforcement partners who helped make today’s indictment possible, including the Clarksville and Owensboro Police Departments, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and four county sheriff’s offices. Today’s indictment is the next step in our efforts to dismantle gangs and stop the spread of deadly drugs and violent crime,” Attorney General Sessions described a 54-count indictment charged 12 members of the Mongols Motorcycle Gang (Mongols) with racketeering conspiracy,engaging in a host of violent criminal activities, including murder, attempted murder, assault, kidnapping, robbery, extortion, witness tampering, money laundering, interstate travel in aid of racketeering, and large scale drug trafficking.
Three other individuals were charged with other federal crimes including large-scale drug trafficking allegedly from California to Tennessee and Kentucky, and crimes related to the Hobbs Act.
5…………> The Americans vs Illegals: Schummer
When President Trump said that we may have a “good shutdown”, he probably meant the looming budget standoff as the Democrats are blackmailing the country to grant amnesty to 800,000 DACA so called dreamers, branding it the “Schumer Shutdown.”
Donald J. Trump tweet:
“Government Funding Bill passed last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate – but they want illegal immigration and weak borders. Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!”
“What they’re simply trying to do is hold the government hostage, our military, kids’ health, over something completely unrelated,” House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said on Fox News Friday.
Fearful that a shutdown will harm the U.S. military, President Trump has strongly urged Congress to keep the government open, yet with hours away from a very unpleasant event, he seemed resigned to a shutdown, blaming Democrats for prioritizing “illegal immigration and weak borders.”
The White House said that Mr.Trump will not travel to Florida as previously scheduled, until the continuing resolution is signed.
