...legal steps to challenge the subpoena warrant?

matt - deplore me if you must

The Russians have been stealing American designs for decades. We used to have 10-12 different aircraft in production until the 1960's, You could even say that the F-16 took some of the best features of the F-5 and other single engine jets.

The upgrades such as the F/A 18 continuations and now the F-15EX are refinements of the original designs and extend capabilities significantly.

One of the intriguing possibilities is the Valkyrie drone. Linking a couple of F-15EX's or 35's with several Valkyries (disposable) opens up a lot of options.

It seems the Navy is putting a huge amount of effort into ship killing. having a fully loaded squadron of Valkyries do a kamikaze at 800-1,000MPH into a nice Chinese formation sounds like good bang for the buck (pun intended).This would even the odds pretty quickly.

Remember, if the Chinese fleet loses it is a huge loss of face. And Xi has that exact kind of hubris to think he's got the odds beat.

Its just so absurd, there was no assault on democracy except those rotten boroughs as trollope called them, and equally rotten media companies engineered.

Leaving out alexandria for a moment, there was the attack on the capitol building in 1983, there was the faln doing a similar thing a third of a century earlier in the notes of the winter soldiers they planned the assasination of pro war senators

narciso,

I've been trying to follow all of the various arguments about what fighter planes to field and I think they all go back to the decision to build a joint fighter with variations for each service.

I'm not aware of the Navy or Marines raising as much of a stink as the Air Force about this lately.

I hate to use the word, but the F-35 was built to be modular, not just in its' 3 variants, but because each year the plane would get better as they upgraded the software and its' newly developed armaments.

The newest F-35's are more capable that the early ones. The older ones now need expensive upgrades. All of the services understood that in the beginning. Now the Air Force seems to be balking at the cost.

There is one line of thought out there that makes some sense in acquiring new 4th generation fighters - that if you pair them up with the F-35's ability to network you can turn the 4th generation planes into 4 1/2 generation planes.

The counter-argument to that is then you should spend that money on small stealthy unmanned drones to serve as F-35 outriders.

Somewhere in all the arguments comes the lobbying. How many fighter manufacturers do we want to have remain and if the US buys something other than the F-35 does that make that plane more saleable overseas?

In any event we're still in better shape than Canada.

https://www.thespec.com/opinion/contributors/2021/04/25/should-canada-spend-77-billion-on-new-fighter-jets.html

They were going to by F-35's back in 2010. Then the Bombadrier cluster-fuck, Trudeau and now the GREENs and they still haven't selected a new plane.

Last I heard they were buying used Australian fighters and refurbishing them.

It stands to reason the newer models would perform better

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Tomato tomatoe if i recall the f 16 was based on the mig 25 that landed in japan in 1976--

I don't think so.
The Mig 25 was a large, twin engine, maximum speed, high altitude interceptor/reconnaissance plane built primarily to defend against the U-2 and B-52s.
The F 16 was a small, single engine, highly maneuverable fighter bomber.
It may have influenced the F 15 but that plane was started 10 years after the Mig was and years before 1976.
What was revealed in 1976 was how heavy, fuel guzzling and primitive in the avionics department the Mig 25 was.

Narciso

I do almost all of this from memory sans notes so i caveated.

So instead of that we are spending incalculable gobs of cash on a starter set for the green new deal, which involves in part tearing down some roads so you have a gravel path out of new orleans and houston?

I think the big bifurcation on fighter acquisition is whether the next conflict will be with China, Russia or some low-intensity thing that doesn't require a top-line stealthy fighter.

Do we waste the limited lifespan of an F-35 on low-conflict high-cost missions or do we not have enough of them for a high-conflict who cares about the cost war?

I'm not a fighter pilot and I don't need a billet so I'm a little partial to the idea of drone outriders commanded from an F-35 as the next worthy project to spend money on.

That's the next logical move. Take the pilot out of the plane and you no longer have to worry about G-forces. The thing will instantly be capable of more radical movement without worrying if the pilot is still conscious.

Without the most valuable component on board - the pilot - you can sacrifice the craft to attain a kill. Use all the weapons up and there is still the kamikaze option left.

jim nj

And China is building a new space station. I'm sure they haven't given any thought as to how they could militarize it in its' final stages.

Michigan Gov. Whitmer announces plan to tie coronavirus vaccination rate to reopening
Michigan will fully reopen when 70% of Michiganders have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose

WTF?

This is even sillier than NYC mayor deBlasio announcing that NYC will reopen July 1st. Why July 1st? Why not earlier? That's two months away! I'd have add in the requisite deBlasio fudge factor here. Yes, by July 1, if not sooner, NYC will be a low Covid risk, it's all the other NYC risks I would be worried about.

Michigan is never going to reopen if they are waiting for 70% vaccination rates.

I may be over-sharing. I got up early for a 10AM tele-health call. Which I received at 3:30PM.

The Aortic aneurysm, as I suspected, is in the "watchful waiting" category. "OK, when do we we do the angiogram so I can walk for more than 5 minutes at a time?" "Well, we have to wait for an approval and that often takes some time." "The insurance company sent me a copy of the approval dated April 6." "Oh, let me have Sandra call you back."

I'm scheduled for May 18th and looking forward to it.

In local news Hackensack is scheduled for a non-partisan election for mayor and all council races on May 11. 3 slates. The one who brought, as the campaign literature agrees, one billion dollars worth of residential development to Hackensack. A slate I know nothing about and another that seems to be well financed.

The last is absolutely apoplectic that the evil real estate developers won't pay a cent of taxes for the next 30 years after investing all that money.

Sonofabitch, they're right. What a freaking rip-off. I should vote those bastards out of office. Oh, wait a minute, all those evil real estate developers signed PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) agreements.

Technically, the last group is correct. The real estate developers won't pay taxes for 30 years, they'll pay the rough equivalent and the library and school board can't demand their share. They'll have to ask for it. How demeaning. Or as Jane might say, "How rude."

I don’t know if you guys know about Nasturtiums, but you should. I’ve grown them before, but it’s been a while, so I did a little reading. The main thing to know is when and if you get tired of looking at one, you can eat it.

Apparently they have as much Vitamin C as Parsley, but who uses Parsley as a metric? Not I.

I guess the most interesting fact is that they are the richest source of Lutein in the edible plants world. Now, if you’ve heard of Lutein before it’s because it’s an important Carotenoid. Chances are you’re looking at some now through your Macula Lutea. The main thing that interests me is that Lutein is what makes egg yolks yellow.

I read that hens store Lutein in their retinas and as their laying cycle progresses their eyes change color-until they molt, but I can’t find the source off hand. There’s no getting around the ridiculous difference between commercial and farm raised eggs, though. You can’t feed those caged birds enough Lutein.

If you like reading scientific papers, maybe you can make head or tails of this:

https://www.european-poultry-science.com/Quantification-of-lutein-in-egg-following-feeding-hens-with-a-lutein-supplement-and-quantification-of-lutein-in-human-plasma-after-consumption-of-lutein-enriched-eggs,QUlEPTQyMTk2ODImTUlEPTE2MTAxNA.html

Personally, I’m going to try adding Nasturtium flowers to my omelets and see if they let me into Stanford.

jim, what I’m hearing is that even on a Tele-Call doctors are ridiculously over booked.

Pin,

I get to talk to the doctor's PA's, not the doctor.

After calling to remind them of the scheduled call that didn't happen I finally gave up and took an afternoon nap a few hours later. Then they called. I had the phone in bed with me. I'm going "Hello. Hello." They hung-up, so I got out of bed and called back.

It's really weird. I get to talk to a person with a heavy Spanish accent after I've already read the diagnostic reports through a health portal and I know what they are going to tell me and then i tell them what they need to do next. Weird. Very.

New book out that seems a bit frightening. Being pushed in one of this week's newsletters.

How to understand a media environment in crisis, and how to make things better by approaching information ecologically.

Our media environment is in crisis. Polarization is rampant. Polluted information floods social media. Even our best efforts to help clean up can backfire, sending toxins roaring across the landscape. In You Are Here, Whitney Phillips and Ryan Milner offer strategies for navigating increasingly treacherous information flows. Using ecological metaphors, they emphasize how our individual me is entwined within a much larger we, and how everyone fits within an ever-shifting network map.

Phillips and Milner describe how our poisoned media landscape came into being, beginning with the Satanic Panics of the 1980s and 1990s—which, they say, exemplify “network climate change”—and proceeding through the emergence of trolling culture and the rise of the reactionary far right (as well as its amplification by journalists) during and after the 2016 election. They explore the history of conspiracy theories in the United States, focusing on those concerning the Deep State; explain why old media literacy solutions fail to solve new media literacy problems; and suggest how we can navigate the network crisis more thoughtfully, effectively, and ethically. We need a network ethics that looks beyond the messages and the messengers to investigate toxic information's downstream effects.

Paging sbw. Book is You Are Here:
A Field Guide for Navigating Polarized Speech, Conspiracy Theories, and Our Polluted Media Landscape

Threats to pack the Supreme Court, Iran appeasement, a border crisis, shutdown of the Keystone pipeline, rejoined the Paris Climate Accord — @POTUS’s first 100 days were a disaster for the American people.

.. Idaho makes history ..

Been quite busy of late, but one of the items on my 'in process' list is a move to Idaho. Have a son and DIL in Boise, as of last December. They give the town and state high marks.

Sounds great Art!

Workers eager to see corporate bosses speak out on politics: Poll

But the data also shows that many senior leaders remain reluctant, as do more white employees, and workers are less supportive of CEOs expressing ideas that don’t match their own.

You must be of Landrew.

The pollsters are not using the correct terms to measure the views of Americans today. The terms republican, democrat and independent no longer describe the categories that divide people politically in this country. I doubt that liberal and conservative apply either. Consequently, these polls which are skewed at best and tainted by over sampling are not an accurate reaction to Biden's speech. Moreover, comparatively few people even watched his speech. I wouldn't grant these 'polls' any weight.

So some blue haired asshole got on the hood of a car and got dragged.

AZ GOP chair Kelli Ward has suggested similarly that BLM and Antifa want to shut the audit down. washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/…

Jeremy Duda @jeremyduda
Cyber Ninjas planned for possible antifa or militia attack on the election audit. Though it acknowledged that the probability is low, it contemplated a possible attack on a nearby chemical tank facility that allow a "perimeter breach operation" abc15.com/news/state/cyb…

Dave Weigel
@daveweigel
On Bannon’s show and other pro-audit media (OAN etc) the idea that antifa could target this audit is very widespread. The more boring reality is that anarchists don’t care at all about a belated 2020 recount, just as they didn’t care if Biden beat Trump in the first place.
