Hypersonic Arms Race Heats Up

Officially dubbed Flight Experiment-1, the test was a milestone achievement for a Pentagon technology development project in the works since 2008 with the aim of giving the president the option to hit high-value, time-sensitive targets anywhere in the world within an hour. It’s known as Conventional Prompt Strike.

One Test, $160 Million

The Halloween test was of a modified version of the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW) that successfully flew the same route in 2011 in the Conventional Prompt Strike program’s only other successful flight test to date.

Did China Leap Ahead?

The potential for delivering a game-changing capability is prompting a number of nations to pursue hypersonic technologies. The recent U.S. hypersonic success comes as China and Russia are, according to press reports and concerns of some in Congress, actively working to develop a similar ultra-fast weapon, conducting as many as three flight tests a year of the DF-FZ and 3K22 Tsirkon systems, respectively.

Despite Promises, Obama Planning to Close ICBM Squadron by Dec 2017

November 21, 2013

The Obama administration has drafted a plan to shutter an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) squadron three years after it assured hesitant lawmakers that the New START U.S.-Russia arms reduction treaty would not lead to deep cuts in the ICBM force.

A new timeline prepared by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon maps out a strategy to eliminate an ICBM squadron—and destroy its missile silos—by Dec. 5, 2017. An environmental assessment would begin next month.

The document says the reductions are necessary to “meet the New START Treaty compliance date by closing an ICBM squadron and eliminating the associated Launch Facilities.”

Several Democrats on the Senate ICBM coalition voted for New START, vowing that the treaty would maintain a strong ICBM force. Sens. Max Baucus (D.) and Jon Tester (D.), both from Montana, the home of many ICBMs, issued a press release in 2010 backing New START and saying that the missiles would “continue to play a key role in U.S. national security for decades to come.”

“There was some talk around this town about making deep reductions to the ICBM force,” Baucus said in the press release. “We made it clear to the president that was unacceptable, and fought hard to make sure the START Treaty recognized the critical role that ICBMs play in U.S. national security.”

Baucus and Tester did not respond to requests for comment.


Watch out for 2014 Spoiler Candidates — VA libertarian gubernatorial candidate funded by. an Obama campaign bundler

2013 VA Election for Governor

Tuesday, Nov 5, 2013 at 1:06 PM MST

On yesterday’s radio program, Glenn encouraged Virginia voters to do their homework and know who they are voting for in the contentious gubernatorial race. A three-way race is underway between the President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden backed Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, the TEA Party supported Republican, Ken Cuccinelli, and the candidate running on the libertarian line, Robert Sarvis.

Sarvis has amassed so much support and fractured the Republican, conservative, libertarian voting block so greatly, McAuliffe may very well come out on top in today’s election. While Glenn was certainly not opposed to third-party candidates, he warned his listeners in Virginia to understand who they were voting for before heading to the ballot boxes.

Glenn was primarily referring to Sarvis and some of the bizarre stances he has taken on issues in the past. From raising taxes to rejecting the Austrian-type economics, Sarvis does not sound like your proto-typical libertarian. And, as it turns out, it was a major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler, Joe Liemandt, who helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Sarvis on the ballot.


Rep. Steve Stockman Hands out Articles of Impeachment in the House of Representatives

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) arranged for the distribution of a book described as "the first draft of the articles of impeachment against Barack Obama" to all 435 members of the US House of Representatives. "Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office," by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott were donated by the book’s publisher, WND Books.

There’s a lot to look at, and I think, at some point, if the smoking gun leads to the White House, we have to take action," Stockman told WND.
Back in January, just before Barack Obama presented his 23 executive orders regarding gun prohibition, Stockman said that Obama’s plan to implement administration controls was "an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic."

"I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including, but not limited to, eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment," Stockman said at the time.

"Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person – much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court," he argued.

This appears to be a step towards that, as he has now submitted a book that outlines just why Barack Obama should be impeached.

Following the Navy Yard shootings, Barack Obama indicated that he had plans to implement more gun prohibition.

"Impeachment is one of the many options, including lawsuits and other actions, we can take to defend the Constitution," Stockman said in response to Obama’s statement.

Stockman believes impeachment must be a last resort, but say it is the law of the land. "Enforcing the Constitution and preserving limitations on executive authority aren’t just mainstream, they’re the law," he said.

Author Aaron Klein said of his book, "Consider this work to be the articles of impeachment against Barack Obama."

"Every American, whether conservative or liberal, Democrat, Republican or independent, should be concerned about the nearly limitless seizure of power, the abuses of authority, the cronyism, corruption, lies and cover-ups documented in this news-making book," Klein added.

Here are some of the offenses outlined in the book:

  • Obamacare not only is unconstitutional but illegally bypasses Congress, infringes on states’ rights and marking an unprecedented and unauthorized expansion of IRS power.
  • Sidestepping Congress, Obama already has granted largely unreported de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens using illicit interagency directives and executive orders.
  • The Obama administration recklessly endangered the public by releasing from prison criminal illegal aliens at a rate far beyond what is publicly known.
  • The president’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack, with new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S. mission prior to the assault – arguably impeachable activities in and of themselves.
  • Illicit edicts on gun control in addition to the deadly "Fast and Furious" gun-running operation intended, the book shows, to collect fraudulent gun data.
  • From "fusion centers" to data mining to drones to alarming Department of Homeland Security power grabs, how U.S. citizens are fast arriving at the stage of living under a virtual surveillance regime.
  • New evidence of rank corruption, cronyism and impeachable offenses related to Obama’s first-term "green" funding adventures.
  • The illegality of leading a U.S.-NATO military campaign without congressional approval.
  • Obama has weakened America both domestically and abroad by emboldening enemies, tacitly supporting a Muslim Brotherhood revolution, spurning allies and minimizing the threat of Islamic fundamentalism.

Stockman isn’t the only one who has been talking about impeachment.

"I’ve looked at the president. I think he’s violated the Constitution. I think he’s violated the Bill of Rights," said Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX). "I think if the House had an impeachment vote it would probably impeach the president."

Other members of Congress who have made comments about impeachment include Rep. Duncan Hunter, (R-CA); Sen. Tom Coburn, (R-OK); Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, (R-MI); Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-TX); Rep. Blake Farenthold, (R-TX); Sen. James Inhofe, (R-OK); Rep. Jason Chaffetz, (R-UT); Sen. Tim Scott, (R-SC); Rep. Michele Bachmann, (R-MN); Rep. Louie Gohmert, (R-TX); Rep. Trey Radel, (R-FL); Rep. Steve King, (R-IA); and Rep. Ted Yoho, (R-FL).

This is all well and good, and I’m glad to see these representatives and senators talking about impeachment, but I think for my readers and myself, the question is, "When will the talking end and the impeaching begin?"

Impeachment can and should happen. Barack Obama can be impeached by the House. His removal from office is a different story, of course, seeing that the Senate would need 67 votes to remove him. Can you just imagine how many RINOs would vote to keep him in office, after seeing this shutdown deal go down?

Pressure needs to be applied for impeachment. Even Bill Clinton was slowed down in his agenda due to impeachment proceedings. The same should be true of Barack Obama. So, how about it House of Representatives? Are you going to stop at only words, or will you meet those words with action?

Reduce Oil Imports – Electric Cars–How Much Does It Cost per Charge?

Does trading a gasoline power source for an electric one really help the environment?

When you compare battery to gasoline power, electricity wins hands down.

How to Buy a used Hybrid Car


Dear EarthTalk: If you have an electric or plug-in hybrid car, you’re paying for electricity rather than gasoline all or most of the time. How does that cost compare to a gas-powered car’s cost-per-mile? And since the electricity may be generated from some other polluting source, does it really work out to be better for the environment?
