    The Drive ^ | SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 | JOSEPH TREVITHICK
    It’s something of an open secret that maritime special operations forces around the world rely on a wide array of highly specialized water craft, such as high-speed, low-profile speed boats, miniature submarines, and more. Now, one company, SubSea, is trying to combine a number of these features into single design it calls the Diver Delivery Unit (DDU), which can transform from a speedboat to a mini sub and back again. The DDU concept is centered on a symmetrical twin-hull design, both of which could carry personnel or other equipment. The United Kingdom-based firm says the final arrangement will be both...

    President Trump responded Friday to reports of a terrorist attack aboard the London subway with a tweet that his travel ban against six Middle Eastern countries "should be far larger."

    As the GOP’s latest, half-hearted effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act crashed and burned this summer, the Left celebrated. President Obama’s signature policy lives. Still, it’s not at all certain that it won’t soon succumb to natural causes. As insurers continue to flee the Obamacare markets, choices are reduced, plans are canceled, and premiums skyrocket, we’re left with a status quo that appears unsustainable.If replacing Obamacare is not a matter of “if” but “when,” the billion-dollar question is: what will that replacement look like? With Republicans floundering and much of their congressional delegation too cowardly to give free-market...

    Queen Elizabeth II, 91, is the longest reigning monarch and allegedly held a meeting as recently as two weeks ago to begin the process. Her Majesty is said to have decided that if she is still on the throne at the age of 95 then she will request the Regency Act to come into force. The Regency Act would make Charles a Prince Regent and a King in all but name. Under the Act, the Queen would remain head of state but would have reduced duties without abdicating the throne. [snip]

    The Left is turning a blind eye to sex grooming gangs for fear of being branded racist, a sacked Labour MP has said. Sarah Champion was dismissed from the shadow front bench last month for saying that Britain has a ‘problem’ with British Pakistani men exploiting white girls. In her first interview since then, the former shadow women and equalities secretary said the ‘floppy left’ was failing vulnerable children with its silence. In a newspaper piece last month, the MP said: ‘Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls.’ She quit her role after the...

    BRITAIN is home to up to 35,000 fanatical Islamists - with 3,000 of them “worrying” MI5, Europe’s top anti-terrorism official said today. European Union's counter-terrorism co-ordinator Gilles de Kerchove singled out the UK as having more radicalised muslims than any other country in Europe. Mr de Kerchove also warned Islamic State will attempt a cyber-attack on nuclear power stations or air traffic control systems within five years - possibly by paying Russian hackers to break into vital computer systems. The official, who is in regular contact with security services, as well as terror experts and governments around Europe, said: “The...

    British drivers will face extra checks when renting cars and vans to ensure they are not extremists in the wake of a string of deadly terror attacks using vehicles. Ministers are ordering the crackdown amid growing concern over how easily extremists are renting vehicles and using them to mow down pedestrians in attacks. It comes after 14 people were killed when terrorists ploughed into passersby in Barcelona and seaside town of Cambrils on Thursday. This year in the UK, vehicles have been at the centre of deadly attacks on Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. The incidents sparked suggestions van...

    ASIAN RAPE gangs who target white teenagers are not handed longer jail sentences because of political correctness and fear among the judiciary, the Government’s senior legal advisor has said. Young, white girls have been brutally raped and sexually abused by extensive gangs of Asian men in towns and cities across Britain - yet when it comes to sentencing - the race aspect has been largely ignored, he claimed. Now legal experts are calling for British judges to properly defend the girls who are targeted because of their skin colour. The claims followed a horrific court case in Newcastle this week...

    The UK is likely to face an Islamist terrorist threat for the next 30 years, the former head of MI5 has warned. Jonathan Evans, who stepped down as director general of the spy agency in 2013, described the threat as a “generational problem” which will take decades to tackle. Lord Evans also claimed the Westminster Bridge attack earlier this year may have had an energising effect on extremists. Meanwhile, he said he would be “very surprised” if Russia had not tried to interfere in the UK's last general election. Lord Evans, who now sits in the House of Lords as...

    Seventeen men and one woman were found guilty of a host of sexual crimes against young women – many of them children – after a massive “grooming gang” was uncovered in Newcastle, England. The gang, made up of mostly Muslim Middle Easterners and South Asians (commonly referred to as just “Asian” in the U.K.) preyed upon white British girls, plying them with alcohol, marijuana, mephedrone and other drugs. The victims of sexual abuse were between the ages of 13 and 25. They were drugged unconscious and then raped or pressured into sex through physical or emotional abuse. According to the...
