French jet maker Dassault just pulled back the curtain on its vision for a sixth-generation fighter jet. The Future Combat Air System, or FCAS, is Dassaut’s first clean sheet fighter design in four decades, following the 1980s-era Rafale. The aircraft, which is being designed in collaboration with European aircraft giant Airbus, will fly for the first time in 2026. read more

Reparations – Who Pays and Who Gets?

from Walter Williams at Townhall:

Reparations for Slavery

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls are calling for Americans to make reparations for slavery. On June 19, the House judiciary subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties held a hearing. Its stated purpose was “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.” read more

The Left is Unhinged over Detention Facilities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern border detention facilities are like Sandals Resorts compared with concentration/death/labor camps in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China.

And anyone who makes such an absurd comparison is a moron, who, in Nazi Germany, would have be deemed too mentally impaired to continue living. For the good of society they would have been euthanized.

Regarding the Southern border, Rush Limbaugh had a great point just yesterday, as to why the dems are hitting the conditions at these detention centers so hard. It’s because they can no longer talk about their other favorite topic – the plight of the homeless.

During both the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the left lamented regularly about the homeless situation.

Ronald Reagan was constantly blamed for American homelessness. He increased spending, “through the escalating military budget, all the while slashing funds for domestic programs that assisted working class Americans, particularly the poor.”

Decades later, Reagan was still being blamed. read more

Wind storms can cause a great deal of damage to coastal areas, producing waves that erode the shoreline and destroy facilities such as marinas. A newly-proposed “floating forest” could help, however, by blocking both the wind and the waves. read more

Will the Next Blasey Ford – Come on Down!

A woman has come forward, 20 something years after the fact (except that there are no facts), to claim Donald Trump sexually assaulted her. And as they always do, in a rush to push the narrative that Trump is evil, and of course trust the accuser as unassailable, they snag her for an interview on CNN (of course), only to discover that she is even less believable than Christine Blasey Ford.


from the Daily Wire:

YIKES: CNN Interview With Trump Rape Accuser Goes Off The Rails

On Monday morning, CNN’s “New Day” anchor Alisyn Camerota interviewed Elle magazine advice columnist E. Jean Carroll —and it was a doozy.

Carroll, who claims in her new book that President Donald Trump attempted to sexualy assault her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago, changed her rationale for not pressing charges against Trump and stumbled over answers in a disaster interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Monday.

President Trump has vehemently denied the accusations, claims he doesn’t know Carroll, and has publicly thanked Bergdorf Goodman for “confirming they have no video footage of any such incident.”

In the first part of the interview, Carroll detailed the alleged rape, telling Camerota, “When we walked into the lingerie department there was nobody there, which is strange. It was in the evening, so — and on the counter were three really fancy boxes and a see-through bodysuit. He walked right to the bodysuit and snatched it up and said, ‘Go put this on.’ Now, that struck me as so funny because here I am, a 52 — I am not going to put — my idea was — I said, ‘No, you put it on.’ And he said, ‘No, it looks like it fits you.’ I said, ‘No, it goes with your eyes.’ So I am spinning a comedy scene in my head.”

New DHS Chief Undermines Trump

What’s that old saying? “Sometimes it’s better to stick with the devil you, than choose the one you don’t.”

Well, it’s been proven yet again, as it has many times just in the recent past.

Trump got rid of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen because he thought her ineffective. Maybe so, but at least she was loyal. She’s the devil he knew.

Her replacement, acting Secretary, Kevin McAleenan, is the devil Trump evidently did not know.

Kirstjen Nielsen isn’t looking so bad at this time.

from Zero Hedge:

Acting DHS Chief ‘Sabotaged’ ICE Raids By Leaking Plan To Washington Post

Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration’s plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum – prompting the administration to cancel the raids – many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump’s longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.
