Kim Jong-un About To Receive The Wrath Of ‘Rods From God’ The Air Force Is Dropping On Him

Published

on

Another shinning example of why Americans are an exceptional people. We have just confirmed that North Korea might be looking at a totally new fate unlike any other if their supreme leader Kim “Fat Boy” Un doesn’t stop his temper tantrums.

The new weapon is called “Orbital bombardment,” and it’s just what the name implies. It targets weapons on earth’s surface from outer space. Though not as well advertised as the “Star Wars” weapon system, it was the fear of the development of this technology which fueled the early years of the Cold War-era Space Race between the US and the USSR. If one side developed advanced spaceflight capabilities and the other didn’t, that meant that one side could use orbital technology to target the other with total impunity. Neither side was willing to be that vulnerable, and fanatically rushed ahead with rocket technology to make sure they didn’t fall behind.

Military Wikia Reports:

Lazy Dog “bombs” (sometimes called Red Dot Bombs or Yellow Dog Bombs) were small, unguided kinetic missiles, each measuring 1.75 inches (44 mm) in length, 0.5 inches (13 mm) in diameter, and weighing 207 grains, about 0.47 ounces (13 g).

The weapons were designed to be dispersed over the battlefield with Mark 44 cluster adapters. Lazy dog bombs were technically not bombs because they used no explosive, but were in many ways equally destructive. Mark 44 cluster adapters were one of many possible means to deliver “Lazy Dog” projectiles.

Lazy dog bombs were descended from projectiles of almost identical design and appearance that were originally developed early in World War II as early as 1941. The Korean War-era and Vietnam War-era “Lazy Dog” was further developed, tested and deployed into the 1950s and 1960s.

Originally an Armament Laboratory program codenamed LAZY DOG, the weapon’s development involved Delco Products Corporation, F&F Mold and Die Works, Inc., Haines Designed Products, and Master Vibrator Company of Dayton. The project objective was to design and test free-fall missiles and their dispensing units for use in bombers and fighters. LAZY DOG anti-personnel missiles were designed to spray enemy troops with small projectiles with three times the force of standard air-burst bombs. The Armament Laboratory worked with the Flight Test Laboratory to conduct wind tunnel tests of a number of bomb shapes which design studies indicated to be the most efficient for stowage and release from high performance aircraft.

Experimental LAZY DOG projectiles of various shapes and sizes were tested at Air Proving Ground, Eglin AFB, Florida, in late 1951 and early 1952. An F-84 flying at 400 knots and 75 feet above the ground served as the test bed while a jeep and a B-24 were the targets. The result was eight hits per square yard. Tests revealed Shapes 2 and 5 to be the most effective. Shape 5, an improved basic LAZY DOG slug, had the force of a .50 caliber bullet and could penetrate 24 inches of packed sand. Shape 2 could penetrate 12 inches of sand — twice as much as a .45 caliber slug fired point blank.

The Shape 2 projectile was sent to the Far East Air Force (FEAF) for combat use by mid-1952. FEAF immediately ordered 16,000 Lazy Dog weapon systems. An Air Force Lieutenant Colonel named Haile attached to the Armament Laboratory spent 90 days in Japan to set up local manufacture of the Lazy Dog weapons and train crew members in their use. Project LAZY DOG continued throughout 1952 to determine the optimum characteristics for stable dispersion containers and the feasibility of substituting a LAZY DOG warhead for the explosive nose of the Matador. The LAZY DOG program was still ongoing in the late 1950s.

The rationale for using lazy dogs in the Vietnam War was because they were highly effective against enemy troops hidden beneath the jungle canopy. The munitions were also cheap and easy to scatter over large areas. Like many other weapons, however, their effects were often gruesome and indiscriminate. “Lazy Dog” projectiles were also referred to by other names such as “lawn darts” or “buzz bombs” because of their similar shape to both those objects.

Lazy Dog projectiles were dropped in very large numbers, and usable with almost any kind of flying vehicle. They could be hurled from buckets, dropped by hand, thrown in their small shipping bags made of paper, or placed in a Mark 44 cluster adapter—a simple hinged casing with bins built in to hold the projectiles, opened by a mechanical time delay fuse as shown. The adapters themselves were 69.9 inches long and 14.18 inches in diameter. They would be shipped empty, then filled by hand. Depending on how many projectiles could be packed in, loaded weight varied between 560 and 625 pounds, with the theoretical maximum number of projectiles listed as an astonishing 17,500.

Regardless of how they were released into the air, each “Lazy Dog” projectile would develop an incredible amount of kinetic energy as it fell, penetrating nearly any material upon hitting the ground. Some reports say that their speeds often exceeded 500 mph before impact.

One period military manual with information on this weapon system, dated 04/27/69, had the awkward name “Resume of Technical Data on Conventional Munitions used in Special Air Warfare Activities.”

A variant version of the “Lazy Dog” projectile was developed for the recoilless rifle. However, development was suspended because another kind of flechette solution was used for the recoilless rifle instead.

Because lazy dog bombs were regarded as an experimental weapon throughout the period of their use, and were never deployed widely enough to be commonly sold as military surplus, therefore all versions of them are now highly sought after by military collectors. In the 1970s and 1980s, they could routinely be found for sale at gun shows, but now they are rarely if ever for sale because the supply has been almost completely exhausted. Especially collectible are the earlier forged steel Parkerized finish designs. Later lathe-turned steel examples, including unissued specimens and rusted examples picked up from battlefields, can usually be found on popular auction sites and vertical-market gun auction sites for prices ranging from $15.00 USD to $75 for a set of 10 unissued units. The earlier forged models rarely come up on the auction sites, and generally fetch $80.00 for a single unissued unit.[citation needed]

It brought on a sigh of relief when both sides signed and adhered to the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, which forbade the placement of nuclear weapons in space. The SALT II treaty, as it was named, of 1979 placed further limitations on such technology by the major players in the Cold War, but does not prevent non-signatories of the agreement from developing such weapons in the future. This treaty didn’t affect the development of “Star Wars” because it was only a defense mechanism which would blow rockets from the attacking nation out of the sky before they could reach their destination. This weapon though is for purely attacking our enemies without the long lasting effects of nuclear radiation.

Like Ronald Reagan said, The best way to have peace is by having “peace through strength.” Let us pray that it never comes to this.

Can You Guess What This Maverick Navy Pilot Drew In The Sky That Everyone Was Shocked To See

Wow! This is Huge!

Published

on

And once again we have people who have nothing better to do with their lives making a mountain out of a molehill.

This time, several residents in Okanogan County took photos of an “artwork” done by a Navy Pilot and posted them on social media. One mother even went as far as calling the local news to complain and saying that she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were. I don’t think you have much to worry about since your kids probably already know more than even you claim to know.

The FAA confirmed that some pilots at NAS Whidbey did some skywriting on that day. But an FAA official said there’s nothing they can do about this stunt because they “cannot police morality.” However, officials from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island admitted that one of their aircraft was used, and issued a statement to apologize. Claiming they just didn’t see it coming and added that the US Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and that they find this stunt absolutely unacceptable and of zero training value. They added that they are in the process of holding the crew accountable and that disciplinary steps will be taken as soon as they get to the bottom of this incident.

OMG, People, it’s time to lighten up. No crime no foul. If any mother has a hard time explaining this to their children it’s because they are failing as a parent. And it’s nothing worse than what the far left machine is teaching kids in the classroom about sex while they indoctrinate the new generation to be a bunch of brain dead left wing zombies that would make “Uncle Marx” beam with pride.

WND Reports:

PUBLIC SCHOOLS RUINING U.S. KIDS WITH ‘INDOCTRINATION’

Americans warned, ‘Get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself’

Public education in America today is almost the opposite of education, according to an education expert who calls the nation’s schooling “indoctrination.”

“This isn’t some kind of huge national accident that all these legions of Ph.D experts and all these legions of committees and the U.S. Department of Education – it’s not that they’re just incompetent fools and don’t know what they’re doing,” said international journalist and educator Alex Newman. “They want the system to be doing what it’s doing, and that is destroying real education.”

Real education, according to Newman, means developing knowledgeable, well-rounded Americans who can think critically, process information, make good decisions, support themselves and serve the needs of society.

In other words, real education produces productive members of a capitalist society.

“That’s what you do in a free market,” Newman said. “If you want to profit, you have to serve your fellow man. If you want to have a business, you have to make sure you’re selling a product that they’re willing to purchase at a price that they’re willing to purchase.

“So that’s what an education is, is to create an individual who can take care of themselves, who understands the Scripture, who understands history, who understands science, who understands, obviously, reading and writing and basic mathematics at the very least,” he said.

Newman made these comments during a recent appearance on “The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show.”

Jesse Lee Peterson, host of the show and a wildly popular WND columnist, already knew something was wrong with the American education system.

“One of the reasons I started my private school, BOND Leadership Academy, for boys and girls grades 1 through 12, was because I noticed that these boys and girls are not being educated – especially the boys. They’re coming out dumbed down rather than educated,” said Peterson, author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America.”

According to Newman, government schools are no longer teaching the components of a real education.

In Newman’s book “Crimes of the Educators,” co-authored with the late Samuel Blumenfeld, Newman condemned the “whole-word method” of teaching children to read. In this method, kids are taught to memorize words as if they were pictures, rather than sounding out the word based on the letters that form it. Newman calls it a “quack method” of teaching reading.

Newman also wrote in his book about how progressives have scrubbed the public schools of God and religion. He writes that they have rewritten American history textbooks to downplay patriotism and prepare children to be global citizens. They have confused children by focusing on mathematics to the exclusion of basic arithmetic, which people need to use in their daily lives, he says.

“Crimes of the Educators” reveals how the architects of America’s public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population

 In the author’s estimation, it all adds up to indoctrination.

“We need to draw a clear, defining line between education, which enables people to know how to think, versus what the government is doing today, which is indoctrination, training people what to think rather than how to think and how to process information and how to have critical thinking ability,” Newman explained.

The public education system is too far gone to be saved, Newman argues, largely because progressive educators such as John Dewey designed it specifically to dumb down and indoctrinate children. Therefore, he says modern education reformers need to start over if they wish to save the system.

“If we’re going to have government-provided education, we really need to start from the very beginning, from the very foundation and build on a new foundation that’s based on proper reading, proper writing and real knowledge – not indoctrination,” he said. “And for that to happen, we’ve got to start from scratch and we’ve got to build from there, because the system, I think, is too far gone, it’s too corrupt to be salvaged.”

It’s possible for publicly educated children and adults to overcome the indoctrination, Newman asserted, but it’s very difficult.

“If you subject yourself to a government school or you subject your children to a government school, you’re automatically starting with a huge handicap because a government school is scientifically designed to dumb you down,” he said. “And it is possible to bypass that, but it takes very, very hard work.”

Those wishing to overcome the dumbing-down process need someone who can teach them to read properly, according to Newman. Once they can read well, they can acquire knowledge and truth independently and receive a real education.

“You’re not going to get the truth out of the government schools any more than you’re going to get the truth from the far-left media,” Newman warned.

He offered further advice for adults wishing to educate themselves: Read books.

“They hide all the secrets in the books,” he quipped. “Get books. Make sure you have a big library stocked with information on everything you need to know: history, economics, politics, culture, science – we all need to be well-rounded people, and if we’re going to educate others, we need to be educated ourselves.

“So there’s a lot of great sources out there, but I really recommend people just need to expand their libraries, get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself with books the old-fashioned way. I think there’s really no shortcut.”

Please share if you agree it’s time parents start worrying more about what the left wing teachers teach and less about a childish stunt a naval aviator pulls….

Say What? The Bergdahl Saga Isn’t Over Yet? Yikes!

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

Last week, Judge Col. Jeffrey Nance convicted Sgt. Robert Bowdrie (“Bowe”) Bergdahl’ of two charges of one count of “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty” and one count of “misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.”. For these two charges which Bergdahl could have received up to life in prison. However, Judge Nance gave him:

No jail time for his desertion, be dishonorably discharged from the military, his rank lowered to private (E-1), and pay a fine of $10,000.

Veterans freaked. But the saga isn’t over yet.

The New York Times is reporting Bergdahl’s sentence will be reviewed by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, who convened the court-martial and has the power to lessen the punishment.

According to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ):

If the sentence is a dishonorable discharge, bad conduct discharge, dismissal (if you are an officer), confinement for at least a year, or death, your case will automatically be reviewed by a military court of appeal.

In this case, the appellate court is the Army Court of Criminal Appeals. The court has the power to reverse convictions that are either legally or factually insufficient, and to reduce sentences that they deem to be inappropriately severe.

Needless to say, this sentence doesn’t even approach a slap on the wrist, so any reduction will most likely not happen. Unless, that is, Bergdahl’s plan is to have the court overturn the sentence entirely. Based on the trial, that wil probably not happen either.

However, because Bergdahl’s sentence contains a dishonorable discharge, he may also appeal his sentence to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

So there you have it: review by Gen. Robert B. Abrams; automatic appeal to the Military Court of Appeal; and possible review by Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

And most of us thought the Bergdahl saga was over. Stay tuned…

Traitor Bergdahl About To Receive a Major Award That Will Make Your Blood Boil – This Must Be Stopped

Published

on

Most Americans are still livid over the news of Obama’s little pet Bowe Bergdahl walking out of a courtroom last week a completely free man, after receiving zero punishment for joining the Taliban and subsequently getting 6 members of his unit killed. While we all wonder just what the hell is going on in our country where it’s now acceptable behavior in our military to abandon their posts and hook up with terrorists, Bowe Berghdal’s lawyer still isn’t quite done sticking it to Americans. The demand he’s now making on his client’s behalf is so outrageous it will make you want to punch through a freaking wall and call it a day.

Obama hugs it up in the Rose Garden with the Muslim Converts and parents of Bowe Bergdahl

Back in the good old days, we used to publicly execute traitors. Fast forward to today, and not only are these treasonous morons traded for GITMO terrorists and then free to go on with their lives, but they’re awarded freaking medals for their treasonous and disgusting behavior. You heard that right. If Berghdal’s lawyer gets his way, several shiny new medals will soon be swinging from Berghdal’s neck, replacing what should actually be there, like a newly-woven rope.

According to American Newshub:

After outrageously being allowed to walk free of his desertion charges, the lawyer for traitorous Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl now wants the Pentagon to award him with some of the service medals he would have been eligible for if he had served with honor.

Early this month the traitorous American soldier who escaped to join the Taliban but was held against his will for five years afterward was let off the hook by a military judge. Despite not being convicted of desertion or treason, Bergdahl was given a dishonorable discharge and allowed to walk free without jail time.

The judge’s decision was so outrageous that even a Democrat Congressperson was driven to slam the move.

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D) was a supporter of Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Democrat primaries, but she was no supporter of Bergdahl’s soft treatment.

But now that Bergdahl has essentially been allowed to go without any meaningful punishment, his lawyer is brazenly demanding that Bergdahl be awarded military medals.

Not only does Bergdahl’s civilian lawyer, Eugene Fidell, think that the traitorous soldier should have his dishonorable discharge reversed, he also thinks Bergdahl should be awarded a POW medal.

“We have long felt he was entitled to the POW medal,” Fidell said, according to USA Today.

The Prisoner of War medal is given to any soldier who “was taken prisoner and held captive” while in military service.

Of course, Bergdahl deserted his post on his own. His being grabbed by the Taliban is incidental because the traitor had already abandoned his service before being “captured.”

Still, during his trial, his defense team even insisted that he should get the POW medal so that it wouldn’t look like the government was biased against him — a weak claim if there ever was one.

In January of last year his military defense team demanded he be awarded his medals, too.

Accodring to Military.com:

A military lawyer representing accused deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl called for the Army to award his client several medals, including the Purple Heart and the Prisoner of War medal, during a pre-trial hearing Tuesday.

“We believe this is a prejudice and casts a semblance of guilt,” Rosenblatt said, noting Bergdahl was wearing his dress Blue Army uniform, including a Combat Infantryman Badge and 10 overseas service bars. “We encourage the government to correct that.”

In addition to the Purple Heart and POW Medal, Rosenblatt told Army judge Col. Jeffrey R. Nance, Bergdahl should be awarded the Afghanistan Campaign Medal and the NATO medal during the hearing that largely focused on the defense’s ability to access classified material related to Bergdahl’s case.

If this treasonous POS actually gets a military medal for his “service,” I will publicly hold a bonfire and burn every last one of my military medals I received overseas as an act of defiance because these medals obviously mean nothing if traitors to America are awarded them.

What the hell is going on in our country? The only thing that belongs around Bowe Bergdahl’s neck is a freaking rope!
