- The U.S. Army plans to field a new armed scout helicopter, the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA), in the 2030s.
- Two companies, Lockheed Martin and Bell, will now build prototypes of their FARA aircraft designs.
- Lockheed Martin and Bell are expected to deliver prototypes in 2023, turning them over to the U.S. Army for testing.
The U.S. Army has selected Lockheed Martin and Bell as finalists to build Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft, or FARA. Lockheed’s Raider X (pictured above) will go up against Bell’s 360 Invictus (below). Each company will build one prototype, with the winner chosen in 2023. The service wants to field the armed scout helicopter quickly to fill a critical gap left when the service retired the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior.
Once again, the left just can’t help itself. It’s like there is some sort of contest to see which leftist can demonstrate the most stupidity and heinousness.
Is there is a special Pulitzer for the biggest jerk in media?
A successful American business owner wants to retool his factory to make much-needed Covid-19 masks. For this and his audacity at mentioning God in the same sentence seemingly wins him the most reviled human award who isn’t named Trump.
It would laughable if it weren’t so sad and pathetic.

Liberals are outraged Trump invited MyPillow CEO to the podium after he announced he was dedicating his company’s resources to manufacture badly needed masks
A new study has tracked the potency of cannabis products across a number of American states, finding the majority of medical marijuana is stronger than it needs to be for pain relief purposes. The research suggests higher THC levels are unnecessary for medical uses and can increase the risk of negative side effects.
In an age where instant photography means whipping out a smartphone and immediately sharing the digital image with friends online, a boxy camera that produces self-developing prints seems like a huge backward step. But that’s exactly what instant film cameras provide, and a revamped Polaroid has announced a new model called the Now.

Well I’ll be. Another computer model has completely overblown the severity of something. First, decades of global warming doomsday scenarios developed by computer models have been proven to be complete crap, and now the Wuhan coronavirus computer generated sick and death toll numbers are found to be not even close.
But we humans sure do love to panic. It sometimes seems that we thrive on it. I think it’s why so many love horror movies.
So, without ever questioning the method or results of the “scientific” community, we, like lemmings, dutifully hunker down in shelters and comply with the edicts of “experts.” For the “experts” can never be wrong.
Well, the experts were apparently wrong when they gave us the dire warning that we best be prepared for this to last 12-18 months. And now that’s been revised ever so slightly to possibly peaking in as little as 2 to 3 weeks!
Meanwhile, multiple millions are out of work, businesses are forced to close and possibly for good. Supply shortages are everywhere and more than likely, the suicide rate will spike due the fear instilled in people.
As impressive as computers are becoming, they still pale in comparison to nature’s version – the brain. As such scientists have started designing computer chips that work in a similar way to the brain, using artificial neurons and synapses. Now Intel has unveiled its most powerful “neuromorphic” computing system to date. Named Pohoiki Springs, this system packs in 100 million neurons, putting it on par with the brain of a small mammal.

On Tuesday, the ultra-leftist Guardian website posted an article entitled: “Arizona man dies after attempting to take Trump coronavirus ‘cure’.”
Well that’s a surprise on at least two fronts. First – I wasn’t aware that Trump was president, a doctor and a research scientist. Who knew?
And second, what kind of moron would drink fish tank cleaner – for any reason?
Oh and there is a third point, yet it’s no surprise. It’s the Guardian’s practice of yellow journalism when it comes to reporting on Trump.
The U.S. Space Force has received its first “weapon,” the Counter Communications System.
CCS is designed to prevent nearby adversaries from accessing their own military satellite communications, cutting them off from their home countries.
In addition to the United States, Russia and China are working on their own satellite communications jammers.
This is a 1966-model Volkswagen T1 Samba Bus. It has spent more than half a century on the roads of California, meaning it’s probably got wild and woolly stories to tell about Woodstock and the Summer of Love, and unspeakable things have surely taken place in its roomy interior. Lives have likely begun in this humble little people mover, and now it’s getting a second life of its own.
