1/1 scale F-4 Phantom-2 model

24 April 2017 (15:42 UTC-07 Tango 06) 03 Ordibehest 1396/26 Rajab 1438/28 Jia Chen 4715

The USAF 36th Maintenance Squadron and Civil Engineering Squadron worked together to refurbish an old F-4E Phantom static display on the U.S. Island territory of Guam.

Veterans of Foreign Wars members, and Vietnam conflict vet, pose in front of the 1/1 scale F-4E Phantom II display at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.

During the Vietnam occupation many U.S. Air Force operations were launched from Guam.  The USAF version of the F-4 Phantom II was first deployed in support of the Vietnam occupation in December 1964.  For some odd reason the squadrons who rebuilt the static display painted the aircraft to represent a USAF bird based in West Germany from 1973-75.

“The U.S. Forest Service has always been a strong partner with the Department of Defense when it comes to firefighting. This is probably one of the clearest examples of the benefits of using military aircraft in a civil support role and the U.S. Forest Service is the agency that does it the best. The U.S. Forest Service and the four airlift wings within the Air National Guard and the Air Force Reserve have really figured it out, with everything from logistics to funding, to execution, to standardization and the direct result is we save American lives and property using military crews and equipment in a civil support role. We’ve really built a strong partnership with the U.S. Forest Service over the last 44 years.”-Colonel Bryan Allen, Air Expeditionary Group

MAFFS training in Idaho concluded on 24 APR 2017, with a total of 121 sorties, 124 flight hours & 373,900 gallons of water dropped!

Video interview with Captain Melissa Emmett on Gowen Field, Idaho, 22 APR 2017:

“We have recognized the benefits to combine training periodically for operational consistency and standardization, not only with the air wings but for our personnel, as well. The compelling reason to do a combined training again this year was the integration of the 152nd Airlift Wing, from Reno, into the MAFFS mission. We know we have a window of opportunity to get Reno proficient. The speed to that proficiency is important. When you have this kind of setting, with all four wings together, it provides a more complete setting to meet that objective.”-Kim Christensen, U.S. Forest Service

“We hope to get an initial understanding about the space micro-gravity effects on stem cell proliferation and differentiation.”-Duan Enkui, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Inside the cargo compartment of space-freighter Tianzhou-1

Aboard China’s new and just launched Tianzhou-1 space-freighter an experiment like no other is taking place; making space babies!

Among other experiments Chinese scientists are using human stem cells to test the viability of Earthlings being able to have sex, I mean conceive children in a weightless environment.

To make it even more interesting, the scientist conducting the experiment are still on Earth.  They’ll be using remote sensing technology to ‘get-it-on’ in space.

On top of that, they hope to discover the ability to help Earthlings regrow new organs and limbs: “Maybe scientists will be able to induce stem cells to grow into certain tissues or organs in space in the future to serve people on earth. In another scenario, if a human is injured and loses organs in future space migration, the lost organs might be regenerated……We expect to continue our research into embryonic stem cells on China’s future space station. We aim to try to culture functional tissues, such as heart, kidney, liver and spleen tissues.”-Lei Xiaohua, Chinese Academy of Sciences

“everything is financial”: U.S. Government Shenanigans, February 2017

Incomplete list of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for February 2017:

Alaska: Taxpayer owned Alaska Railroad Corporation laid off 31 people and eliminated 29 positions, blaming an un-recovered economy for creating a forecasted loss of $4.9-million USD for 2017.

Arizona: Marana Hooters restaurant shutdown not by protesters, but by a $148-million USD state taxpayer funded road project.  Local news reports say the road project will block both access points to the restaurant.

California: Taxpayers in the city of Covina forced to pay to re-develop a former Kmart property into a housing project and bus terminal! Tax sucking maker of parts for inflatable boats, Wing Inflatables, warning that 1-hundred jobs in Arcata could be lost, if they don’t win a multi-million USD tax-sucking contract from the U.S. Navy for Special Warfare Boats!   Washington based port operator Puglia Engineering suddenly backed out of its deal to take over a former British empire BAE pier in San Francisco, 184 jobs suddenly gone!  Administrators blame the U.S. tax-sucking British empire’s BAE for selling them a pig-in-a-poke as they discovered $9-million USD in damages to the pier caused by BAE!  Local news media reported that under BAE the pier employed more than 2-hundred people.   Tax-sucking Rockwell Collins issued a WARN, 44 jobs in Irvine lost by the end of April.

Colorado:  Missouri based prescription ‘benefits’ company Express Scripts shutting down its call center in Pueblo, 320 jobs lost by the end of April!  City leaders say Express Scripts still owes local taxpayers $2.8-million USD that was loaned to the prescription company, and never mind that Express Scripts also got about $3-million in tax incentives to build a call center in Pueblo!

Idaho: In the overwhelmingly christian (Mormon) dominated south eastern part of The Gem State, some christians actually campaigned against Pastor Jacqualine ‘Big Momma’ Thomas’ planned homeless shelter in Pocatallo! After a local Muslim doctor started the financial ball rolling in favor of the homeless shelter (waking up true local Christians who had money to donate), a group of christians went to the city council to point out that the Sublette Street property was not zoned for “transitional housing”.  The Mormon dominated city promptly revoked the temporary operating permit.  Pastor Big Momma commented to local news media that she’s taking this as a sign that god has a better location in mind.

Iowa: The state Department for the Blind eliminating ten jobs in March due to massive taxpayer funding cuts over the next two years.

Kentucky: Privately run but taxpayer funded probation and parole company Kentucky Alternative Programs lost its contract with Boyle and Mercer district courts due to failing to meet new rules established by the state supreme court.

Maryland: Baltimore based, evangelical founded, World Relief warning of layoffs across the U.S. due to the new President of the United States of America Donald Trump.  You see, christian founded World Relief gets paid by federal taxpayers according to how many refugees they take in.

 New York:  U.S. Army contractor L3 Technologies laid off 44 people, other employees are being transferred to Mississippi, due to cuts in taxpayer funding.

Ohio: Enginetics issued a shutdown WARN for its factory in Eastlake, at least 28 jobs lost by July. Enginetics’ main customer is the tax-sucking U.S. military.

Nebraska: In Omaha, after only two years Grane Whiskey Dispensary shutdown. Local news reports say the owner is fighting legal claims over alleged unpaid taxes concerning a different booze business.

Pennsylvania:   CNX Coal Resources-Consol Energy laid off 2-hundred people due to a state Environmental Hearings Board restriction!    Soda pop seller ShopRite laying off 3-hundred people because sales crashed by 50% due to the city of Philadelphia’s 1.5 cents per ounce tax (on top of existing food taxes)! New Jersey based Canada Dry Delaware Valley eliminating 20% of its jobs in Philadelphia, because their soda sales crashed by 45%, again, due the city of Philadelphia’s 1.5 cents per ounce tax (on top of existing food taxes)!

South Carolina:  Tax-sucking maker of fabric armor, DuPont-Kevlar, shutting down its six years old factory in Berkeley due to lack of sales.  Local news reports say DuPont claimed to have invested $500-million USD in the factory, but is now consolidating the work to other factories, resulting in 113 jobs lost in Berkeley County!

Tennessee: After only one year and U.S. taxpayer funded incentives to build a $22-million USD factory in Kingsport, British empire Canada owned Pure Foods now chapter 11 bankrupt busted!  The company also promised to hire 275 Tennesseans, but local news media reported that food production at Kingsport was suddenly halted in October 2016 after the Canadian owners suddenly decided to consolidate operations.

Texas: In Plano, Forex Capital Markets eliminating 56 jobs in April, blaming federal regulators.

Vermont:  It was revealed that state tax collectors forced Flanders Market/North Tunbridge General Store/Chelsea’s Pizza House to shutdown in November! The owner of the stores re-opened them in December after settling the taxes, but then suddenly shutdown them all down in January/February, saying “Everything is financial”.

In the BAT ‘cave’ at Camp Dodge Joint Maneuver Training Center, Iowa.

According to the following video report there are only two BAT (BLACKHAWK AIRCREW TRAINER) in use, and the Iowa National Guard is the first state militia unit to get one of them:

By the way, one BAT costs taxpayers $9-million USD, which is cheaper than flying the real thing.

“We look forward to this joint training with our military and civilian partners. Training together with all four MAFFS wings alongside U.S. Forest Service and other wildland firefighting agencies here in Boise provides a significant opportunity as we prepare for another challenging wildfire season.”-Colonel Bryan Allen, Air Expedition Group

MAFFS : WILDFIRE SEASON 2018 GOING TO BE A HOT ONE!

Destroy U.S. Dollar: Japan recognizes Bitcoin as official money! Charities accept it for donations!

20 April 2017 (15:42 UTC-07 Tango 06) 31 Farvardin 1396/23 Rajab 1438/24 Jia Chen 4715

At the beginning of April, Nippon (Japan) legalized the use of Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, and immediately two major retailers announced they would accept customer’s Bitcoins.  Now the city of Hirosaki announced it would accept Bitcoins for their Save the Cherry Blossoms charity.

The value of Bitcoins has skyrocketed since Nippon legalized its use.  Nippon is the first country to legally, officially, recognize cryptocurrencies as money.

The next big move to watch in the cyrptocurrency revolution is Россия (Rossiya aka Russia).  In 2014 Rossiya banned the use of such money, but towards the end of last year the Федеральная налоговая служба, ФНС России (Rossiya Federal Tax Service) reversed the ban, saying bitcoins are not illegal.  Rossiya  Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Moiseev even said cryptocurrencies could become legally (officially) recognized by 2018.

What is money? Money is not a real tangible thing, it’s whatever a government accepts as money based on a value system.  In ancient times the first money systems used shells then grain crops and even salt as ‘money’.  Then came coins minted by the first empires, and thousands of years later paper money and something called credit. For a long time governments (which includes religions) tied the value of their money to the value of a precious metal like gold, but between 1971-73 U.S. President Richard Nixon changed that.  Nixon and his cohorts United Kingdom (British empire) and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (also connected to the British empire) conspired to create a new money system tied to petroleum oil called the PetroDollar system.
