Since it was introduced in 1976, well over a thousand of BAE Systems’ Hawk trainer jets have entered service in 18 countries around the world. Now the latest variant, the Advanced Hawk, has taken to the air for the first time in the skies over Warton, Lancashire, UK in demonstrator form. Boasting a new wing design and a revamped cockpit, the Anglo-Indian two-seater is intended to train pilots to handle fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Ramadan, the Muslim Holy Month is soon coming to a close. And what a month it has been – record setting in fact. There have been more deaths and more casualties in 2017 than any Ramadan month prior. In fact, as Breitbart writes, that deaths have more than tripled that of 2016 and injuries have doubled. They have been kind enough to add a timeline, chronicling daily attacks from the start of Ramadan, and will update attacks daily until the close on June 24. I invite everyone to view it by clicking on the link above. It’s rather remarkable.
Then there is the singular event, which has attracted so much press attention, of the whack-job white guy in London who used a van to mow down several Muslims exited a Mosque. Of the incident, the Atlantic penned a piece entitled, “An Attack From the ISIS Playbook.”
They’re right about that. No doubt this dirtbag Darren Osborne got the idea of using a vehicle from the recent Islamist attacks. However, the liberal Atlantic added a subtitle to the piece which reads, “The London attack seems to fit with a pattern of growing attacks on Muslims—both in Europe and in the United States.”
They write that the attack by the white guy in London was “right out of the ISIS playbook,” for the following reasons. “The attacker was a man, apparently acting alone. He took as his weapon a simple van, ramming it into people in an attempt to kill them. And he obeyed the command from ISIS spokesman Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer to strike civilian targets in the West during the holy month of Ramadan.”
Recall the nationwide outrage of American football fans and patriots alike when then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during a pre-game national anthem.
Every week thereafter he continued his antics, taking a knee, occasionally joined by other know-nothing wealthy black players throughout that season – and for what?
The backlash against Kaepernick was monumental and compounded his collapse as an NFL starting quarterback. So caustic is he that he is literally unable to find employment as even a third-string quarterback. It seems no one wants him.
He was roundly condemned by practically the entire country, save for leftist radicals, anarchists, communists and Black Lives Matter. I supposed that list was a bit redundant, as all are cut from the same red cloth.

President Trump has officially pulled us out of the Paris Wealth-Distribution Treaty. Hooray for the President!
Yesterday, as many have heard, Trump said: “In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord…”
Well that’s terrific, or at least it would have been if he had ended there and simply said “thank you and have a nice day.” But he didn’t. His campaign promise was to pull out completely and leave it at that.
Yet he kind of left the door open by next saying: “…but begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris Accord or really an entirely new transaction, on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers…”

from The Washington Free Beacon:
Congress is scheduled to host an anti-Israel forum that takes aim at the Jewish state’s military, accusing it of “systematic discrimination” against those living in the “occupied Palestinian territory,” according to an invitation for the event circulating on Capitol Hill that has sparked outrage among pro-Israel lawmakers.
The event, which is sponsored by a member of Congress who has chosen to remain anonymous, will feature several anti-Israel organizations that back boycotts of the Jewish state and distribute propaganda accusing the Israeli military of human rights violations, according to an invitation to the June 8 briefing obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The event, “50 Years of Israeli Military Occupation & Life for Palestinian Children,” has riled several pro-Israel offices on the Hill and sparked a search for the anonymous lawmaker who has provided the organization space in room 122 of Capitol Hill’s Cannon House Office Building, according to conversations with multiple sources.

from Katie Hopkins:
At this difficult time, Britain is faced with some hard questions the people charged with protecting us are going to have to answer sooner or later.
The Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was known to the authorities.
He is believed to have travelled to the Middle East and become radicalised before returning to the UK to cause carnage at a gig in the city where he was born just days later.
As his father and brother were arrested in Libya, security force sources there said the father had links to Al Qaeda and another source claimed the brother ‘was aware of all the details’ of attack plans.
Yet he was allowed to walk back to the UK unchallenged.
Katie Hopkins asks: Who is going to protect our kids from the terror the politicians let in?
With almost 10% of its population now Muslim migrants and refugees, the nation of Austria has admitted it has problem. A problem they’ve finally decided to address. They’ve passed new laws that will be instituted beginning in October to ban the burqa in public places, require Austrian integration classes, including the German language, culture and customs.
Naturally those on the left are not happy with change in policy – a 180% turn from the current just-let-them-all-in policy, which has worked so well.
