The US State Department has summoned Moscow's ambassador after a Russian fighter jet collided with an American Reaper drone over the Black Sea, downing and destroying the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). (Snip) Pentagon officials said the Russian fighters harassed the drone by dumping fuel on it and flying in front of it, before one Su-27 clipped the propeller of the $32 million drone, forcing it down over the Black Sea in a total loss of the unmanned aircraft.


This article notes that the Russian jet “harassed the drone by dumping fuel on it and flying in front of it” before clipping the propeller of the $32 million drone.

The ambassador was probably severely counseled by one of our new diverse State Department wonders.

The Russian Ambassador arrived, looked at the 22 year old blue haired girl who asked to be called “them”, raised two middle fingers, may have said, “Eat me” in Russian, then left, laughing. The Associated Press reported the Ambassador was appropriately chastised and the promised to try and not do it again.

#13 I am not apologizing for the Soviets but KAL 007 was flying over prohibitive Soviet airspace, while a US reconnaissance mission was in progress, when dispatched. It was a tragic navigational error made by the KAL crew. I will never understand why anyone expects the Russians to be good guys especially after our "leaders" keep poking them and telling us how rotten they are.

Do you really believe anything coming from our Pentagon or State Department these days? Noble patriots have been purged. The globalists are spoiling for a war with Russia, and like most wars it boils down to territory, resources, power and money. Money. But, first they have to get the proles worked up via propaganda so that we will accept a war and be willing to sacrifice ouir sons and daughters for a good cause. Compare the land mass of Russia vs the US, China, Canada, Australia or Brazil. It's about twice as big with 11 time zones and massive untaped resources. Russia must be sweating bullets because they have the western globalists on one side and the Chinese on the other.

The weird emphasis on what the Russian fighter supposedly did is great for keeping people from wondering about the real questions. For instance: "Why was a US attack craft flying near a combat zone where Russia was in the middle of an offensive?"

This stupid war is 2 bad guys fighting it out. But it is costing us probably a trillion dollars by the time it is all said and done. When our current government refuses to spend a few million dollars for defense of our southern border from the massive invasion of illegal aliens, but can send billions and billions and billions of dollars (both cash and military equipment and ammo) to Ukraine when we have no treaties or alliances with them (other than how much they pay to the crooked family of Senile Joe bidet), that is when I get angry!!!!

Easy solution, put two air to air missiles on each drone and shoot down anybody that plays games with it. Self defense is a legitimate argument.

WASHINGTON — Over the past 11 months, someone created thousands of fake, automated Twitter accounts—perhaps hundreds of thousands of them--to offer a stream of praise for Donald Trump. Besides posting adoring words about the former president, the fake accounts ridiculed Trump’s critics from both parties and attacked Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and UN ambassador who is challenging her onetime boss for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. When it came to Ron DeSantis, the bots aggressively suggested that the Florida governor couldn’t beat Trump, but would be a great running mate.

After months of near-silence and innuendo, Florida Gov. and GOP presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis decided to speak about Ukraine, removing all doubt about his position. While his statement on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show makes a handful of valid points, it is ridden with a fundamental misunderstanding of the war and US geopolitical interests. First, the good. DeSantis is correct to criticize the Biden administration’s lack of clear objectives in its support for “as long as it takes,” which is a recipe for a long and intractable conflict — which Americans would be right to reject.

Some electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers are scrapping the AM radio from their cars, claiming safety concerns. Although conservative talk radio dominates AM radio ratings, it is also considered a critical safety tool, as it is one of the primary ways that federal, state, and local officials communicate with the public during natural disasters and other emergencies. Automakers such as Ford and Tesla have ditched the AM radio from their newer EV models, arguing that the motors on EVs interfere with AM frequencies, creating buzzing and signal fading, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Because we’re already a quarter of the way through 2023, and if the world can no longer be saved, if it’s too late to reverse climate change (which is a hoax), Greta and her fascist agenda are no longer relevant.

The report discusses the physical limitations of unidentified aerial phenomena and suggests that aliens may be visiting our solar system and deploying smaller probes similar to NASA’s planetary exploration missions. Dr. Kirkpatrick is a highly experienced expert in scientific and technical intelligence.

A draft research report authored by Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), and Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department was released on March 7 and focuses on the physical constraints of unidentified aerial phenomena. “…An artificial interstellar object could potentially be a parent craft that releases many small probes during its close passage to Earth, an operational construct not too dissimilar from NASA missions,” the report read.

Amid the litany of weather reports and coverage of a U.S. drone being downed in the Black Sea after colliding with a Russian jet and recent woke banks going under, Wednesday’s CBS Mornings made it interesting when they spent a few minutes fawning over San Francisco moving closer to offering $5 million, guaranteed incomes of $97,000, and homes for the price of $1 to Black residents as reparations. This was despite the fact that, as they admitted, a Hoover Institution estimate found it could cost San Franciscans of other races (and presumably those in poverty) $600,000 in new taxes. Talk about a case of mass racial arson.
