NEXT U.S. WAR WILL BE LONG, HARD AND TAKE THE ENTIRE COUNTRY TO WIN, ARMY CHIEF SAYS Newsweek (Americans currently see all their wars on TV and most have come under that illusion that these wars are just movies, but that is about to change. We’re about to start being active participants in our wars if we don’t change our warring ways)

The Army’s leading officer dispelled Thursday some of the more persistent myths about the potential major conflicts of the future, emphasizing that war was never likely to be a simple endeavor.

Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley told reporters at the National Press Club in Washington that despite technological and strategic developments, tomorrow’s wars may look a lot like today’s in the sense that they will probably be violent, prolonged battles that require extensive resources both to fight and to resolve.

New Report Exposes Thousands of Illegal Votes from 2016 Election CNS News (Maybe President Trump has a point, after all?)

A new bombshell study released by the Government Accountability Institute shows why President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity has such an important job ahead of it.

The Institute concluded in its report that thousands of votes in the 2016 election were illegal duplicate votes from people who registered and voted in more than one state. Read more…

Eastern Libya force jet shot down by missile over Derna: official. Reuters (America ignited war in Libya is still raging even if our media has moved on after selling it to us. Just a reminder that they’ll also move on from Syria, if and when they finish the job of selling if for their masters.)

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) – A fighter jet from eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar’s self-styled Libyan National Army was shot down in Dahr Al-Hamer district in Derna and its two crew detained, an air force spokesman said on Saturday.

Haftar’s LNA is one of the most powerful armed factions in Libya, where a U.N.-backed government in Tripoli is struggling to assert authority over an array of armed factions which have been competing for control since the 2011 fall of Muammar Gaddafi. Read more…

China’s Xi urges need for ‘world-class’ army loyal to Party. AFP. (Is America’s recent belligerence on the world stage about to breed a new arms race?)

Chinese President Xi Jinping touted the need to build a “world-class” army capable of “defeating all invading enemies” at a military parade held Sunday to mark the 90th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

Since coming to power in 2012, the president has trumpeted building a stronger, combat-ready army, while leading efforts to centralise the ruling Communist Party’s control over the PLA, the world’s largest standing military. Read more…

Conformity In Congress Greases The Skids Toward World War III. Huffington Post (Just so you wouldn’t say you did not see it coming. The establishment want their war by all means, and not even their war monger candidate losing the election will stop them.)

Prospects for World War III got a boost this week on Capitol Hill, where conformity reached new lockstep depths. A bill that was most conspicuous for ratcheting up sanctions on Russia sailed through the House of Representatives by a 419-3 margin.

To further grease the path toward thermonuclear annihilation, the White House announced on Friday night that President Trump will sign the sanctions bill. Read more…

U.S. government ordered to solve ‘Case of the Incredible Shrinking Airline Seat’. Reuters (As Americans have kept increasing in size, Airlines have kept decreasing aircraft seat sizes. That can’t be good, and something has to give at some point. This might be it.)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. aviation authorities were ordered back to the drawing board on Friday to solve what a federal appeals judge called “The Case of the Incredible Shrinking Airline Seat.”

Judge Patricia Millett told the Federal Aviation Administration to take another look at an advocacy group’s assertion that shrinking airline seats are imperiling passenger safety. Read more…

Court says Flint residents can sue Michigan over bad water. ABC News (It’s one thing to sue, and quite a different thing to win anything that will adequately compensate for the harm done. It’s a start, though.)

Residents in Flint who were exposed to lead-contaminated water can pursue constitutional claims against Michigan and city officials, a federal appeals court said Friday.

In a 3-0 decision, the court overturned decisions by a judge who said federal water law eclipsed claims of civil rights violations. The court said it wasn’t judging the merits of the two lawsuits, but it’s allowing residents to at least get inside the courthouse door. Read more…

MS-13, THE GANG TRUMP SAID HE WOULD DECIMATE, IS ONE OF TEXAS’S MOST POWERFUL. Newsweek. (Mostly fueled by illegal immigrants but we don’t want illegal immigration curtailed because it’s discrimination)

Just a few days before President Trump on Friday promised to decimate MS-13, the state of Texas released a threat assessment that said MS-13 is among a handful of the most dangerous of 20 criminal gangs, with as many as 100,000 members that operate across the state.

MS-13 and three other Hispanic gangs were categorized as the biggest threat to public safety based on their relationships with Mexican cartels and their high levels of violence and transnational crime, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety assessment, which was released Tuesday.

5 States Where the Middle Class Is Being Destroyed. Cheatsheet. (I know it’s a very unimportant news, but someone needs to talk about it in the face of the very critical Russia elected our president story.)

The economic wounds of the financial crisis and Great Recession are evidently deeper than anyone has realized, despite the fact that nearly every economic indicator is showing significant progress. Case in point: the shrinking middle class. We’ve been hearing about how the middle class has been in trouble for years now, and while there’s been plenty of evidence to back those claims up, new data is showing just how deep and widespread the damage is.

Building blocks of alien cells found on Saturn’s largest moon. New Scientist (The search continues for alien life making you wonder what we’ll do with it if we find it.)

Conditions on Titan are looking more and more promising for life. For the first time, the building blocks of cell membranes have been detected in the moon’s atmosphere.

On Earth, each cell is a packet of mostly water surrounded by a thin membrane made of lipids. Neither of these components would fare very well on Saturn’s largest moon. Titan is far too cold for liquid water, with average surface temperatures of -149°C. Instead, its seas are made of liquid methane, in which the lipid membranes necessary for life on Earth would be unable to develop. Read more…
