The United States has made plenty of enemies over the years thanks in part to Barack Obama’s weak foreign policies. Instead of Obama easing tensions with world leaders he would placate them and push issues off to the side instead of dealing with them head on. Now, we have President Trump in the White House who is a strong leader and is not a pushover like his predecessor. While many thought that Trump would be able to ease the tensions with Russia that has not been possible thanks to liberals pushing the fake collusion scandal. As tensions mount between the two countries an enemy plane was just spotted flying over the Capitol, the Pentagon, the Central Intelligence Agency and Andrews Air Force Base at low altitude, but what why is the real question.
On Wednesday morning, an unusual sight was spotted flying over the Capitol, the Pentagon, and other various Washington sites. The flight, however, was neither unexpected or threatening, and it took place as part of a longstanding treaty the two countries to observe each other from the air. The treaty is called 2002 Treaty on Open Skies and was designed to allow military aircraft in the United States, Russia, and other nations observe military sites of the 34 signatory nations. Apparently, it was Putin’s turn to observe the United States which is why the unarmed Russian plane was spotted in the United States skies. According to the State Department, “the treaty is designed to enhance mutual understanding and confidence by giving all participants, regardless of size, a direct role in gathering information through aerial imaging on military forces and activities of concern to them.”
The plane was a Russian Air Force Tupolev Tu-154 that flew at a range around 3,700 feet over downtown Washington and Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, where Air Force One is based, according to flight tracking website.

Here is more from Washington Post:
A Russian surveillance plane soared through secure airspace over Washington on Wednesday, presumably collecting intelligence as it traveled near the Pentagon, the Capitol and other government buildings, two U.S. officials said.
The Russian Air Force Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft made the flight through the Treaty on Open Skies, which Russia, the United States, and 32 other nations have signed. The treaty established criteria under which countries can make unarmed observation flights over the soil of other treaty members in an effort to promote transparency and international arms control efforts, according to the State Department.
The Capitol Police issued an alert Wednesday that warned that an “authorized low-altitude aircraft” would enter restricted airspace between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The alert did not state who owned the plane, but said it “will be large and may fly directly over the U.S. Capitol.”
“This flight will be monitored by U.S. Capitol Police and other federal government agencies,” the alert concluded.
A Defense Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing operations, confirmed that the flight alluded to was Russian and operating in the area through the treaty.
The flight, first reported by CNN, is expected to be followed by another one Wednesday evening that flies over President Trump’s property in Bedminster, N.J., where he is vacationing. According to the treaty guidelines, U.S. airmen are aboard the Russian jet observing when an Open Skies flight occurs.
But Marine Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has argued that Russia may be taking advantage of the treaty. He told the House Armed Services Committee subcommittee on emerging threats and capabilities last year that he would “love” to deny future Russian flights over the United States through Open Skies.
“The things that you can see, the amount of data you can collect, the things you can do with post-processing, allows Russia, in my opinion, to get incredible foundational intelligence on critical infrastructure, bases, ports, all of our facilities,” Stewart said in March 2016. “So from my perspective, it gives them a significant advantage.”
The United States carries out similar surveillance flights through the treaty while using an OC-135B, an Air Force observation jet. A Pentagon spokesman, Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, defended the program to reporters last year.
“We have to remember that while we have pretty good intelligence on a lot of the world, a lot of other countries don’t necessarily have that great of intelligence on us,” Davis said. “So, in the interest of transparency and miscalculation on their part, sometimes it’s worthwhile to allow them to have a look at what you’re doing or what you’re not doing.”
Of course, the left is frothing at the mouth with this information, but it truly is a nothing to see here moment. However, that won’t calm the incessant shrieking from the left considering that on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort had to endure his Virginia home being raided by FBI agents working on the special counsel’s fake Russia probe.
At any rate, whether or not this was just Putin’s turn to fly over does it make anyone nervous? Considering how tense the relationship is between the two countries it does not exactly bode well, and it is quite possible that Trump will fly over the Kremlin next.

Here’s A Look At Our Military’s New Weapon Systems
Some badass firepower!
President Trump had promised to build a strong military during his candidacy and has followed through with it as president. However, most people are unaware of what our military has done in the past few years. So here is a list of the currently available new weapons systems.
Boeing’s High Energy Laser (HEL) is sometimes referred to as a “death ray on wheels”. The Army’s new laser has already been “successfully used to blast some UAV drones and 60mm mortars.”
The Army’s Advanced Test High Energy Asset (ATHENA) uses a 30-kilowatt laser that has shown the ability to shoot down a drone.
This weapons system is being used by the Navy as a defensive weapon on a ship that will “shoot down incoming missiles, drones, boats and other potential threats.” It will eventually be a 150 kilowatt weapon that will be eventually placed on a destroyer or aircraft carrier.
The High Energy Liquid Laser Area Defense System (HELLADS) is a laser weapon designed for use by the Air Force “to defend against surface-to-air threats” such as enemy aircraft, surface-to-air missiles, and rockets.
The Laser Identification through Scattering and Beam Recognition (LITSABR) is defensive weapon designed to detect laser beams being projected by enemy forces.
It should be noted that lasers are viewed as so important that members of congress have asked the military to get them into the field – faster.
The Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile (CHAMP), is a non-lethal missile that projects a microwave pulse that effectively acts as an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP). The EMP will shut down all computers and electronics within its range.
The Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) is designed to serve the Army, Marines, and Navy. It is “equipped to allow for laser, millimeter-wave and thermal targeting systems to be installed.”
This is a 40 mm guided missile designed to be launched from a grenade launcher that can reach up to 1.2 miles.
This is a 12 pound, 22 inch long, laser-guided missile designed to be launched from a drone at enemy ground forces and equipment.
Bombs and Projectiles
“This new technology makes it possible for any larger gun to fire shells that can be programmed to explode with pinpoint accuracy, either before, above or inside a target.”
This 208 pound, 70 inch long all-weather laser-guided bomb that can travel up to 40 miles.
The railgun is designed for ships to launch projectiles electromagnetically (rather than by traditional means) at speeds greater than 4,500 mph (about Mach 6 or six times the speed of sound) to targets more than 100 miles away.
Weapons and Weapon Systems
Also known as the Typhoon Weapon System, this is a 25-mm machine gun installed for ship self-defense to counter High Speed Maneuvering Surface Targets (aka “fast boats”).
And finally, the
The Carl Gustav is an 84 mm man-portable reusable anti-tank recoilless rifle. It becomes a shoulder-fired rocket launcher if a post-firing booster is added. This weapon is designed to be used against both personnel and tanks.
Welcome the 21st Century and our U.S. Armed Forces.

WHOA! Look What Melania Just Did To Her Entire Flight Crew After What Happened To Her Staff
Melania Trump doesn’t have a personal staff as big as Michelle Obama’s was, which was an intentional decision she made to cut back on unnecessary spending. Operating with a team of professionals who each have an important purpose, our compassionate First Lady shows sincere gratitude for each person who helps her, recognizing that it’s a privilege. So when she saw how they were treated recently, Melania responded in a surprising way our of protection for the people who help her do her job.
Melania doesn’t speak often unless she has something meaningful or important to say. She saves her words for when they matter most, especially since the liberal media is waiting with baited breath for a chance to twist anything she says or does. Today she said something that won’t soon be forgotten, especially by her entire flight crew who her remarks were directed at.
While Melania is traveling around the globe on her first overseas trip as First Lady, she’s on Air Force One just about daily, going from one location to the next. It’s a lot of travel and flight time, which she’s become somewhat used to as she flies frequently while living in New York, but having First Lady duties in Washington, D.C. With this much time in the sky and need to rely on her flight crew she and her staff are dependent on, the team has gotten to know the personable First Lady and they aren’t just any flight crew.
Melania and her staff are transported by the US Army 1-214th Aviation Regiment who have always shown the First Lady and her staff the utmost respect in doing this important job. This is something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Melania who likes others to know how much they are appreciated, rather than just taking advantage of it the opportunities afforded her like her predecessor seemed to do.
Even though she’s overseas right now, Melania hasn’t forgotten about her awesome Army men who she publicly thanked today on Twitter going into this Memorial Day weekend. Like her husband, our First Lady has a love and respect for our military.
— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) May 26, 2017
She didn’t have to say a word and perhaps nobody would have expected her to, but the fact that she remembered them and made a point to thank them for their service to she and her staff, speaks volumes as to the incredible First Lady we have in the White House. The gesture wasn’t just well-received by the American public who appreciated her thoughtfulness to our military, other servicemen and women saw her social media message and responded with gratitude.
Inevitably, the liberals came out in the comments too, as they always do as soon as FLOTUS posts anything, since they are waiting for it. One took the opportunity of seeing the photo of Melania with the Army flight crew to ask about her husband’s service in an accusatory way, claiming he dodged the draft. A wise citizen responded to it, effectively putting this troll in their place.
“Not serving doesn’t mean you’re a draft dodger. He registered. Lots of guys did and got deferments. Some actually left the country,” the Twitter user wrote.
What’s truly remarkable is that Melania is an immigrant and has more respect for our armed forces and genuine love for our country than ungrateful degenerates who were born here and seem to hate it. Our First Lady is proof that immigrants who come to America the right way are proud citizens who have a deep appreciation for what makes America great, and that starts with our military.
It wasn’t often or ever that the Obamas showed this kind of gratitude for anyone who flew them around safely. In fact, our former president couldn’t even bring himself to salute soldiers standing outside Air Force One or Marine One to welcome him. We’ve come a long way in the White House in a short time, with the Trumps there now who truly love this country and respect its citizens.
Trump About To Send National Guard To Take Over Miami Beach After What Was Just Revealed About Rampage
Over the last several years, the left has been pushing for a race war to create as much chaos in the country as possible. Hate groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Black Panthers have appeared to be apart of this nefarious plan by stoking the flames of division. These terrorist groups have pledged to destroy the country in an all-out war against the American people which has everyone on edge.
Every time a police officer has had to use deadly force that has involved a black person these radical liberal groups claim racism and proceed to riot in the streets. So, after this past weekend when the Miami Beach police had to use deadly force against a black woman everyone is wondering will this be the spark that starts a civil war and force President Trump to call in the National Guard.
This past weekend, a black college student went on a rampage in Miami Beach, Florida that has left the residents in the busy city stunned. Cariann Denise Hithon, 22, was driving her black BMW through South Beach when she hit several cars which prompted the police to be called in to help. Instead of Hithon pulling her vehicle over the young woman ran a red light before running over police officers in the area.
After Hithon ran over the officers, the police had no choice but to draw their weapons and fire at Hithon which subsequently killed her.
Here is more from Fox News:
A Temple University student was shot and killed by police in Miami Beach on Sunday after she charged her car toward the officers, striking and injuring one — an incident a witness said: “played out like a movie set.”
Cariann Denise Hithon, 22, was driving her black BMW when she crashed into several cars in South Beach, a popular tourist district, police said. Hithon ran the red light and was traveling “at some rate of speed,” police said. Michael Davis, who witnessed the chaotic scene, told WSVN Hithon repeatedly rear-ended cars.
“She rear-ended it, and after she rear-ended it, she drove off,” Davis told WSVN. “She actually drove off again and ran over a police officer, and after that, shots were fired.”
Another witnessed captured Hithon hitting Officer David Cajuso.
Miguel Garcia, another witness, recalled: “So everyone is like, ‘Oh my God! Oh my God!’ And people started running after her car. Like she wanted to escape no matter what.”
Other bystanders said they heard several shots fired before a crash. Hithon was rushed to the hospital where she later died of her gunshot wounds.
Cajuso was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries. He was released Monday morning.
John Butchko, a retired Miami-Dade homicide detective whose car was struck by Hithon, told the Miami Herald the deadly ordeal “played out like a movie set with people running, screaming, car crashes, gunshots, an injured officer lying on his back on the ground — all within a minute.”
Butchko’s passenger, Miami Beach lawyer Sean Ellsworth, said he was alarmed by her behavior.
“I was literally shocked she would drive into four or five officers. She just floored it.” Ellsworth said. They both suffered minor injuries.
It’s unclear why Hithon attempted to flee, but investigators said she and her friend, who casually got out of the car before Hithon accelerated, were drinking heavily earlier Sunday. Investigators questioned the unidentified man, who was later released.
Hithon, who was from Bowie, Maryland, was in Miami to celebrate her birthday. She attended Temple University after transferring to the school from Hampton University. Temple University released a statement on Hithon’s death, saying their “thoughts are with the Cariann’s friends and family during this tremendously difficult time.”
Hithon, who was part of mentorship programs for community children, was enrolled in the university’s College of Liberal Arts program and expected to graduate with a degree political science in the spring. Hithon’s father, retired U.S. Navy Capt. Cary Hithon, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview on Tuesday that the police account of the shooting didn’t sound like his daughter.
“The only logical explanation in this situation is she panicked, and things just escalated out of control,” he said.
The current climate in America is one that is on edge due to lunatics on the left pushing for war. Instead of the liberal politicians working to bring the country together in order to move forward these hateful individuals have called for “resistance” and protests. Police officers in the country are now afraid to do their job in fear that they will be called a racist or even worse be killed in the line of duty.
These officers in this particular situation had no other choice but to use deadly force on a person that was trying to kill innocent people. Of course, those in Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the Black Panthers won’t see it that way which has government officials nervous. It is only a matter of time before these extremists on the left begin to use violence and President Trump will be forced to implement martial law.
And, martial law is something none of us want.
