The Air Force revealed on Monday that it had finished installing new wings on the last of its A-10 Thunderbolt IIs. The news wings on the iconic aircraft, also known as the Warthog, should last for up to 10,000 flight hours without a depot inspection, expecting the aircrafts to fly until the late 2030s.
“At the end of the program, making sure we had all the pieces and parts that we needed to make that happen required a really significant team effort,” Stephen Zaiser, director of the 571st, said in a release. “I think the fact that we produced the aircraft so successfully is a testament to the whole team, the special program office, Boeing and others that were a part of making it all work.”
It’s good to see this incredible aircraft has been given a new lease on life. The A-10 has saved countless numbers of lives in the battlefield, where at times just a quick reminder of its deadly reputation with a Burrrrrrrrrrr of its cannon in close proximity to the enemy being enough to make them stop in their tracks and run.
At least 6 Philadelphia police officers were shot during a gun battle that took place Wednesday afternoon. The situation began as officers attempted to serve a narcotics warrant on the 3700 block of North 15th Street at about 4:30pm, when the suspect, identified as Maurice Hill, opened fire. The police exchanged fire and were forced to flee through the windows and doors. The situation evolved into an hours long standoff between the suspect and police, with at least 30 officers being forced to discharge their weapons.
According to CBS Philadelphia, one woman claimed the standoff was reportedly similar to a warzone and said, “When they started dumping with the firepower and stuff like that, they did it in front of the day care, the babies were out and everything, that’s crazy. I’m a discharged veteran. I thought I was in a DMZ zone. It’s triggering PTSD, all types of things, all of this needs to be resolved. It’s senseless, seriously senseless.”
While the officers had to deal with this intense situation, they also had to deal with being taunted by a crowd of people who laughed and yelled at officers in the middle of the gunfire.
This nonsense is just as odd and barbaric as the actions taken by the shooter that shot 6 officers. The officers were risking their lives to protect the people, and the people were taunting them and harassing them.
Police have arrested a man early Tuesday morning after he allegedly fired gunshots through the windows of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Antonio.
The man apparently fired the shots from across the highway into the windows of the building. The windows are not bullet proof, and at least one shot penetrated the windows.
“They have a 24/7 command center in there so there were people in the building,” a former senior ICE official who spoke with an official based at the office reported to the Washington Examiner.
It won’t be long until these leftists shoot something other than a building. ICE facilities need to turn their cameras around so they can see who is approaching and if it appears someone is about to engage the building, they should be shot and taken into custody as a corpse.
Multiple well-known Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court this week that it will face a fundamental restructuring if the justices are unable to “heal” the court soon.
According to Fox News, “The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court’s conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.”
The conservative majority in the Supreme Court has driven this radical desire for fundamentally changing a crucial organ of the federal government. The Democrats clearly believe that if they are unable to win by the rules, then they need to change the rules. Multiple Democratic presidential candidates, including Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand have promoted the idea of packing the courts, meaning adding justices to the Supreme Court until they have an ideological majority that will not enforce the Constitution. This will allow them to push as mush tyrannical and unconstitutional legislation as they desire. This is a very bad idea, even the leftist beloved Ruth Bader Ginsburg agrees, she told NPR in July, “nine seems to be a good number.”
It has become a hostile living environment in this country because of the leftist Democrat Party and the slothy Republican Party that does nothing to stop them. These leftist threats to undermine our Constitution must not go unnoticed by the American Citizenry because it is clear that so called conservatives and constitutionalists in DC won’t stand up and defend what was put in place by the men that fought tyranny to create this country. It should be clear to everyone that the only people in government who are maneuvering to counter this nations foundation, is a collective of leftists with tyrannical tactics of governance.
A man has been arrested after allegedly going on a stabbing and robbery spree, killing four people and injuring two others on Wednesday night. According to police, the suspect used “multiple knives or machetes” in the attacks, and he has been identified as a documented gang member who had previously been in prison for selling methamphetamine.
“Four people needlessly lost their lives tonight from this savage suspect. This is a brutal attack,” said Garden Grove Police Lt. Carl Whitney at a news conference on Thursday. “This is tragic. We don’t want to see tragedy like this happen. It’s been happening across the United States.”
This incident comes days after a total of 31 people were killed in mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. It also happened days after a man with a gun prevented a mass shooting in Springfield, Missouri.
The typical definition of a mass shooting is a shooting where four people are shot. In this scenario, 6 people were stabbed, 4 died. Like I always say, an attacker can kill with a fork if it’s the only weapon they have. Motivation is what allows a person to kill, not access to a firearm.
