    The key issues cited by the group are costs and communication problems with the Pentagon Police Department.

    A civilian contractor pilot hired by the Hawaii Air National Guard was in serious condition Wednesday after crashing his plane during a military exercise off the coast of Honolulu, authorities said. A private sailboat rescued the unidentified 47-year-old pilot about 3 miles south of Oahu near Honolulu's Sand Island where he was then transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard. The Hawker Hunter jet went down in the ocean around 2:25 p.m. after taking off from Honolulu's airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said. The Hawker Hunter is a British jet developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s, according...

    I watched this movie over the last couple of nights.I am not a movie reviewer so cut me some slack.I thought it was really good.Joaquin Phoenix stars as a damaged veteran (but who of us who gives a shiite isn't damaged). I was warned that it was a gratuitously violent movie. It wasn't.It reminded me of the Comet Pizza thing of child molestation by those in power.I thought this movie was powerfully acted and the plot was spot on about what those evil ones in power do to satiate their hunger and thirst by sexually devouring our young.

    Gary SinisePatricia Heaton made her own suggestion on social media after TIME's Person of the Year announced its shortlist on Monday night, offering up actor and humanitarian Gary Sinise. "Hey @TIME , why isn’t @GarySinise ever on the Person of the Year list? Hey @TheAcademy, why isn’t he ever picked for the #jeanhersholt humanitarian award? He raises $30M a year to build homes for wounded vets along with his #goldstarfamily support. Retweet!" the "Everybody Loves Raymond" actress wrote in a tweet. Heaton's choice was apparently well-received online — with more than 30,000 people sharing her opinion.

    Following the two court filings on President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen and his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, the White House has dismissed the case as the President declared himself "totally" clear. The sentencing memo registered by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York regarding the investigation and probe into the personal business dealings of Cohen didn't include fresh or valuable information, according to Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary.

    The City Council on Thursday put its political clout behind a proposal in Albany to overhaul state health care by creating a “Medicare for all” program that would raise taxes by $139 billion a year. The single-payer plan would extend coverage to the roughly 1 million uninsured New Yorkers — including undocumented immigrants — and eliminate all co-pays and deductibles.

    American Thinker ^ | 12/07/2018 | Robert Arvay
    China is following the path that Japan took in the years leading up to the bombing of Pearl Harbor 77 years ago. Of course, China has been much more subtle, but no less aggressive. Indeed, the outcome may be worse. Some background is in order. In the year (1918) immediately after First World War, a war in which Japan was a member of the winning alliance, the Japanese expected to take their place on the world stage as major player. They were awarded many of the formerly German territories in the Pacific, but they demanded more. They demanded the formerly...

    Most everyone watching the live coverage of yesterday’s George H. W. Bush’s memorial service was touched by the comments made about the man. However, interesting enough, I overhead two 50 something (assumed to be liberal) women talking about former Congressman Alan Simpsons comments about the former President and it struck me as to how different we think, men vs. women / conservative vs. liberal. What Alan Simpson said was, “George H. W. Bush hated no one.” He went on to say, “hatred corrodes the container it’s in.” That was an amazing statement about a man that the media had put...

    Pretty much anyone on the planet who studies firearms or military history has heard of the pistol known as the 1911.

It was a product of the fertile mind of John M. Browning, a man considered to be one of the most important and...

    The Navy will honor former naval aviator and 41st president George H.W. Bush on Thursday with a largest-ever 21-aircraft missing man formation as part of his funeral services in Texas. Thirty F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets departed Naval Air Station Oceana, Va. today ahead of the Dec. 6 internment ceremony at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas. A naval aviation official told USNI News that a missing man formation of this size is unprecedented and reflects Bush’s legacy as a naval aviator and ongoing relationship with the Navy’s carrier strike group community.
