Russia creates 'unstoppable' hypersonic missile at 4,600mph

Dig Your Bunker Deeper

(International Business Times)  -  Russia claims to have created a devastating hypersonic missile that travels five times faster than the speed of sound and could rip through navy warship defences because it's too fast to stop.
The Kremlin's Zircon missile has been called "unstoppable", "unbeatable" and "undefendable" with a 4,600mph speed that only one defence system in the world can destroy – that system is owned by Russia.
The missile employs revolutionary scramjet technology to reach its hypersonic speeds whereby propulsion is created by forcing air from the atmosphere into its combustor where it mixes with on-board fuel – rather than carry both fuel and oxidizer like traditional rockets. This makes it lighter, and therefore much faster.

It uses no fans, rotating turbines or moving parts – just an inlet where air is compressed and a combustor where the air is mixed with fuel. Fewer moving parts also means less chance of mechanical failure.
The Zircon has been in testing stages this year and would be capable of destroying the world's most advanced warships and aircraft carriers in one strike and could be put into action by 2020. The US Navy warns it could be fitted to Russia's nuclear-powered Kirkov warship, where it would have a range of up to 500 miles.
In comparison, the Royal Navy's Sea Ceptor missile, which is designed to destroy incoming missiles can only travel 15 miles and hit top speeds of 2,300mph.
A senior Naval source told the Mirror: "Hypersonic missiles are virtually unstoppable. The whole idea of the carrier is the ability to project power. But with no method of protecting themselves against missiles like the Zircon the carrier would have to stay out of range, hundreds of miles out at sea. Its planes would be useless and the whole basis of a carrier task force would be redundant."

Pakistan builds border wall with Afghanistan

A Wall - What a Concept!

(AFP) - Pakistan has begun building a fence along its border with Afghanistan to curtail the movement of militants, its army said, in a move criticised by its eastern neighbour for dividing communities.
The two nations are divided by the "Durand Line", a 2,400-kilometre (1,500-mile) frontier drawn by the British in 1896 and disputed by Kabul, which does not officially recognise it as an international border.
It also splits the Pashtun ethnic group between the states.
Both routinely accuse the other of harbouring militant proxies to carry out cross-border attacks, while their militaries have engaged in numerous skirmishes in recent years.
Last year, Pakistan completed an 1,100 kilometre (700 mile) trench along the southern half of the border. The current round of fencing began in the northern tribal regions of Mohmand and Bajaur over the weekend, according to the army.
"It is first time we've started the formal fencing with the political government onboard. Previous efforts...were local in nature," a security source said Monday.

Tony Podesta Made $500K Lobbying For Chinese Firm Convicted Of Illegal Sales To Iran

(Daily Caller)  -  Democratic super-lobbyist Tony Podesta grossed more than $500,000 to represent a Chinese company criminally convicted in March of sending illegal shipments of telecom equipment to Iran, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.
The seriousness of the illegal sales to Iran were so extreme and continued for so long — from 2010 to last year — the Department of Justice (DOJ) imposed a record $1.19 billion fine on the ZTE Telecommunications company, making it the largest penalty ever imposed in a U.S. sanctions case.
The Chinese firm hired the Podesta Group, one of Washington’s biggest and best-connected lobbying companies in the nation’s capital, in January 2016. ZTE retained Podesta’s personal help as negotiations intensified for a final resolution with DOJ during the final year of President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House.
The Shenzhen-based company pleaded guilty on March 7 to violating a 22-year-old ban on shipments to Iran, including “conspiring by illegally shipping … U.S.-origin items to Iran, obstructing justice and making a material false statement,” according to the DOJ.

'They'd vote no against the Ten Commandments': GOP Congressman resigns from Freedom Caucus

The Freedom Caucus

  • The Bullshit is flowing so thick in Congress it is hard to know who is full of it.

(Business Insider)  -  Rep. Ted Poe explained on Monday why he resigned from the House Freedom Caucus, a group of hardline conservative lawmakers who helped block President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan's healthcare bill.
Poe said on CNN's "New Day" that the conservative caucus "continues to be the opposition caucus against anything in the Republican Party."
The Texas congressman said that while Republican leadership had attempted to ignore the concerns of its most conservative members in the past, caucus members were key players in the negotiation of the American Health Care Act, which Trump and Ryan pulled before a scheduled vote in the House on Friday.
"There's nothing that could be added to the bill that the Freedom Caucus would ever vote yes on," Poe said. "I got the opinion that there are some members of the Freedom Caucus — they'd vote no against the Ten Commandments if it came up for a vote."
Poe said that although the AHCA was "not a perfect bill," Republicans "promised for years" that they would repeal President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, the healthcare law better known as Obamacare, if they held the White House.
"We voted 60 times to repeal Obamacare," Poe said. "Then when it came down to repealing it, when it actually counted, people just said, 'Nah, I'm not going to vote to repeal the bill.'"

Phony "Outrage" as Corpses Pile Up in The Middle East

Humans are Fucking Insane

  • The political liar class claims there is "international outrage" at civilian deaths in Mosul. 
  • But for some strange reason there was no "international outrage" as the CIA shipped mountains of weapons to Islamists in Syria that directly resulted in the ISIS invasion of Iraq.
  • The Middle East has been turned into an open graveyard and giant pile of rubble by the village idiot Bush and Comrade Obama. Now we see Trump being sucked into a war created by the CIA.

(The Guardian)  -  Iraqi military leaders have halted their push to recapture west Mosul from Islamic State as international outrage grew over the civilian toll from airstrikes that killed at least 150 people in a single district of the city.
The attack on the Mosul Jadida neighbourhood is thought to have been one of the deadliest bombing raids for civilians since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. Rescuers were still pulling bodies from the rubble on Saturday, more than a week after the bombs landed, when the US-led coalition confirmed that its aircraft had targeted Isis fighters in the area.
They carried out the attack on 17 March “at the request of the Iraqi security forces”, and have now launched a formal investigation into reports of civilian casualties, the coalition said.

Open Borders Wins The Day

It is the Death of the West

  • Sheeple "Conservatives" and Leftists alike voted to abolish German national borders and let in Muslim illegal aliens by the millions.
  • The Alternative for Germany party was the only one to stand up for nationalism and controlling immigration.  Voters gave them a "massive" 6.2% of the vote and 3 seats in the state legislature.
  • Germany is finished. You might as well rename it Deutschlandistan.

(Reuters)  -  German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives won a regional election in the western state of Saarland on Sunday, dealing a setback to their Social Democrat rivals and boosting her prospects of winning a fourth term in September's national election.

Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) strengthened their position as the largest party in the state despite expectations ahead of the vote that the Social Democrats (SPD) would be boosted by their new national leader, Martin Schulz.
German State of Saarland

The CDU won 40.7 percent of the vote, up from 35.2 percent in the previous election in Saarland in 2012, preliminary official figures showed. The SPD slipped to 29.6 percent, down from 30.6 percent.

Prior to the election, polls had indicated that a left-leaning "red-red-green" alliance of the SPD, the far-left Linke and the environmentalist Greens -- or even a "red-red" coalition if the Greens failed to win enough votes -- could emerge after the vote.

But the Greens failed to reach the 5 percent threshold required to enter the state assembly, while the SPD and Linke, which won 12.9 percent, lacked enough votes to form a coalition on their own.

Saarland has only 800,000 eligible voters, but the state election was the first of three regional votes ahead of the Sept. 24 federal vote and offered an opportunity for the parties to build, or lose, momentum for the national election.

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD), which bruised Merkel in regional elections last year after her decision in 2015 to open Germany's doors to migrants from the Middle East, won 6.2 percent of the vote in Saarland.

Kasich & GOP Governors Happy With Obamacare

"This is the Silence of the Lambs Congress. They're utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump."

EDITOR -  GOP Governors and Congressmen BS us with talk about how horrible Obamacare is. But when push comes to shove they want that cold hard cash to keep flowing.

(Newsmax)  -  Governors of both parties had warned Congress for weeks that the Republican health care bill threatened to saddle their states with big costs and potentially leave millions of people without coverage, especially because of the cutbacks planned to Medicaid.
The bill's withdrawal on Friday left in place the status quo under the Affordable Care Act. That was welcomed by several governors in the states that opted to expand Medicaid under former President Barack Obama's law.
"I am pleased today's vote has been held as this bill would drastically affect the Commonwealth's ability to ensure essential care for thousands of people," Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican in a Democratic-leaning state, said in a statement after the bill was pulled from consideration. 

He went on, "This version does not reflect the needs of states and does not contain many critical aspects of health care reform that our administration has communicated to the federal government."
In Ohio, the state estimated that rolling back the Medicaid expansion entirely would have saved it $3.7 billion over a decade on Medicaid costs. Trying to maintain the program under the Republican plan would have cost $7.8 billion.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich and three other Republican governors — Arkansas' Asa Hutchinson, Nevada's Brian Sandoval and Michigan's Rick Snyder — wrote a letter to congressional leaders last week saying they wanted to undo Obama's Affordable Care Act but faulted the Republican replacement plan. 
They said it did not give states enough flexibility or provide the "resources necessary to make sure no one is left out."

Communists Ban Books, Movies, Games Without a Permit

(Radio Free Asia)  -  China issued a ban starting Friday on the sale of foreign publications without an import permit, in what activists said is the next step in the ruling Chinese Communist Party's quest for total thought control.

The new rules came into effect on the online shopping platform Taobao on Friday banning sellers from offering "overseas publications."

"In order to ... create a safe and secure online shopping environment and to enhance consumer confidence and satisfaction, Taobao has embargoed sales of foreign publications," the company said in a statement on its website.

The change, which also includes foreign "services" relating to publications, will enter into force on March 10, 2017, it said.

Violations of the rule leading to "serious consequences" will result in the deduction of 48 seller points, it said.

The move comes after five Hong Kong booksellers were detained for selling "banned books" to customers across the internal immigration border in mainland China.

Pan Lu, of the Hubei-based rights group Rose China, said the administration of President Xi Jinping is currently tightening control over every aspect of public discourse.

"They are clamping down on ideology and public opinion," Pan said. "They can't afford to allow a pluralistic value system to seep into China via the consumer market for foreign publications."

"The Chinese Communist Party is terrified that its own single-party ideology is bankrupt, and it is trying to shore up its grip on power by controlling what people think."
