The Pentagon Just Did Something It’s Never Done Before… Trump Is Going To Love This!

Liberal snowflakes are going to hate This!

Published

President Trump’s input with Lockheed is definitely producing results and cutting costs. The latest batch of F-35 fighters that we just put on order, will be produced at the lowest cost in history. Lockheed gives credit to the successful negotiations to President Trump for this outcome. They ended with a savings of $728 million… not bad for the start of Trump’s presidency.

Even better, it saved $128 million more than even Trump thought it would. This was one of President Trump’s campaign promises… that he would cut costs and he is doing just that. And he’s doing it in the military, which is even better. But not in a way that hurts us on the battlefield, like Obama did. Trump’s original tweet on all this: “The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th.” Trump is indeed a man of his word.

From Western Journalism:

Citing the involvement of President Donald Trump, Lockheed Martin announced Friday the new batch of F-35 fighters ordered by the government will be supplied at the lowest price in the history of the program.

The deal Lockheed and the Defense Department agreed upon brought the price per jet to below $95 million for the first time, compared to $102 million in the previous batch, a savings of $728 million for the entire order.

Lockheed Martin said in a statement that “President Trump’s personal involvement in the F-35 program accelerated the negotiations and sharpened our focus on driving down the price.”

The savings announced by Lockheed exceeds what Trump said only days ago would be saved in the newest round of F-35 purchases.

“We cut approximately $600 million off the F-35 fighter, and that only amounts to 90 planes out of close to 3,000 planes,” Trump said on Monday.

The negotiations took several meetings with Lockheed chief executive Marillyn Hewson. “The agreement represents $728 million in savings and a nearly 8 percent reduction in price over our last contract for the air vehicle delivered by Lockheed Martin and our industry partners,” Lockheed Martin said in a statement. “This is a good deal for the American taxpayer, our country, our company and our suppliers.”

Lt. Gen. Chris Bogdan, F-35 program executive officer, also said the deal was fair “for the taxpayers, the U.S. government, allies, and industry. “(W)e are substantially bringing the cost of each aircraft down, and at the same time the F-35 program will continue to add thousands of additional jobs to the U.S. economy as we increase production year over year,” said Jeff Babione, Lockheed Martin F-35 vice president and general manager, in a statement. More jobs is music to Americans’ ears.

And Lockheed is looking to reduce costs even further. This is what you get when a businessman sits down and deals intelligently with contractors. Lockheed may be hurt in the short run by all this, but in the long run, it will actually make them more money with more contracts. Everyone wins here.

Here’s A Look At Our Military’s New Weapon Systems

Some badass firepower!

Published

on

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.

Lasers

HEL Photon Cannon 

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.”

ATHENA

The Army’s Advanced Test High Energy Asset (ATHENA) uses a 30-kilowatt laser that has shown the ability to shoot down a drone.

AN/SEQ-3 (XN-1)

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.

HELLADS

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.

LITSABR

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.

Missiles

CHAMP

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.

JAGM

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.”

Pike

This is a 40 mm guided missile designed to be launched from a grenade launcher that can reach up to 1.2 miles.

Pyros

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

Programmable Ammunition

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.”

Small Diameter Bomb II

This 208 pound, 70 inch long all-weather laser-guided bomb that can travel up to 40 miles.

Electromagnetic Railgun

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

Mk 38 Mod 2 Bushmaster autocannon

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

Saab M4 Carl Gustav

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

Published

on

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.

“Thank you to the @usarmy 1-214th Aviation Regiment for getting me & my staff to our mtgs safely! ,” Melania Tweeted from her official Twitter account today.

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.

“Thank You for representing the USA and making our Armed Forces PROUD!! ,” one reader replied.

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

Published

on

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.
