A lot of Tom Clancy novels, and a series on Amazon Prime, and several movies

I got to take Tom for a fam ride on one of our P-3's once, got my copy of Cardinal of the Kremlin signed, what a cool guy to hang out with

People of such character are few and far between especially in our current leader society.

This thread can be so cool at times!

The Great Reset being pitched by Klaus Schwab and the WFO has nothing to do with economics. It's about power and control. Their slogan "You will own nothing, and you will be happy" is made to sound like a promise, but it's actually a threat. It should be read more like "You will own NOTHING, and you WILL be happy!"

Yep. They are already trying to come for my guns with the latest push on an AWB bill. Good luck with that.

You hit the nail on the head (post 10780) but you would catch a hard time convincing over half the population that such is and can occur in the U.S. Those I have spoken with have placed their faith in the enemies hands and follow blindly JAN 6th Proved that. and refusing to listen to the opposite view.

what I want to know is what do they hope to achieve/profit? I have only seen the originators of the lies/confusion profit, not the populace which they supposedly protect

Nice video DAVID
We here (U.S.) can learn from you if we could get past the monetary side of things.

The January 6th insurrection had one purpose to allow those who instigated it to hold on to power after losing a legal binding election. They have more money then they could ever spend this was a blatant power grab. They took so much from Hitler and the Nazi's playbook. Their big lie about a stolen election is a big part of it and is still being pushed to keep what power they have left and keep the money coming in so they don't have to spend any of their own money. They figure let the chimps pay for it and if the chumps go to jail tough luck we're still on the outside.

A good example of why we need term limits. I also wouldn't let any first or second degree relative held the same office as their relative. Our British friends can run their country as they see fit but I'm not a fan of dynasties.

We did that on a state level it helps some and wasn't the disaster the politicians predicted.

Are you better off now than in 2019? I know I had more money in the bank and less going out under our Great President Trump. 81 million voting for that waste of space that is there now? I don't believe it. My 401K dropped $50,000 since February 2021. Our borders WERE secured, now millions of illegals cross without any background checks. We were for the first time in a very long time Energy Independent, but that went away January 20th 2021. Anyone who thinks mumbles and word salad are doing a good job needs their head examined. They are an embarrassment to this great nation.

I see they are still spreading lies about deaths on Jan 6th. One person died, shot in the head, for no reason, and the killer has yet to be named. There is video out there of Antifa members on a room staging to storm the Capital, in fact I believe they were actually IN the Capital where it was recorded. What the jan 6th committee is doing is spreading half truths and partial lies, but the truth will come out eventually. It's the latest dog and pony show, and their followers are right their with their tongues hanging out believing all they spew without looking up the truth for themselves.

Also, why are the Democrats against a resolution against attacks on churchs? Are they Anti Religion? House Democrats on Friday rejected a resolution condemning recent attacks on churches, anti-abortion centers and groups. If they are so pro choice than pull up their little girl panties and make it a federal law making abortion legal. What are they afraid of? States still have their say in it, as they always did regardless of Roe V Wade.

What this country needs is a cleaning of Congress. Out with the old, In with the new, a balanced Congress that would put this country back in it's rightful place, not this Titanic heading at an iceberg at flank speed. The latest "assault weapons" ban they are trying to push through is another hit against the Second Ammendment and unconstitutional. The 2nd is Very clear, The right to bear arms, ANY Arms, shall NOT be infringed. They way they have it written now, if I want to pass my Rugar AR556 on to my son, it would be illegal. They are trying to ban a standard magazine. All in a knee jerk reaction to the shootings, which would not have happened had EXISTING laws been followed. Are they really that DUMB? Our country is run by MORONS, the Three Stooges could do a better job. Both sides of the aisle! At least the republican have a few with their heads on right, and a couple Democrats, but the majority are idiots.

Oh, forgot to mention, that there was finally Peace in the Middle East, now Iran is back to making Nukes.

Hi Everyone;

I could not agree more with acdii's message above! What has happened since Jan. 21st '21 is an absolute disgrace, and this ongoing Pelosi/Schumer/Schiff/Cheney/Hillary Jan. 6th Kangaroo Court/Catch 22/All-Out Hate Trump and Anything Trump/Witch Hunt is more than a disgrace, and should be stopped. President Trump was besieged by Pelosi for his entire term and was finally Impeached on phony Russia propaganda invented by Hillary and Obama. That Impeachment conviction should be nullified and Trump found to be totally innocent.

Also. and most shocking to my Wife and Myself was what we found on CNN about 2 weeks back; we were Channel surfing, stumbled onto an Interview on CNN pf author James O'keefe, discussing his book 'American Muckraker', and his organization called 'Project Veritas'. Therein he discusses the fact that President Biden and Wife Dr. Jill's only daughter has had numerous Drug and Sexual Addiction problems which she blames on her showering with her Father as a child and adolescent. We found these facts to be just plain sickening!......This man in our President, The Commander and Chief, my god, can you believe it! Also mentioned was Biden's Son Hunter, another prize individual, drug abuser and child molester, in that he had sexual relations with both his late Brother Beau's 14 yr old daughter and Beau's wife, Please look up James O"Keefe and his Project Veritas for yourselves on the Internet, and form your own opinions.

I do not know where we are headed, but I have mixed feeling about our Nation's future, and hate to think where we may be by Nov .'24, [it cannot come soon enough for me]. Will Close for now, thanx for your enlightening message acdii, and best regards from very warm Wickenburg, Arizona,

Joe and Shirley, [my own blonde blue eyes] Nagy.

In reality the Queen of England has no political role and any power which the monarchy theoretically has, has not been excercised since the accession of George I in 1714.

The government of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is elected by the people albeit by an electoral system which is flawed in my view and which results in a government which does not reflect the views of the British people.

As for perverts in positions of power we have a few of our own but I expect that that's always been the case..

It's the great Media Cover up that causes it. Look outside the country for news and it tells a far different story. Kudos to Gov Abbot for following up on his promise to bus the illegals to DC. They wanted them to cross, well, now they have them to deal with.

You need to start learning how to fact check, actually Biden has halted are large number of visitor day passes from Mexico last year to stop them from coming in and taking a runner. He is being sued by the Plasma industry because it has shutdown their border operations. I don't trust either side. Remember the immortal words of Ronald Reagan "Trust be verify".

So that's what Trump and his gang are on! I have Biden pegged as more of a weed smoker.

If we may return to aviation matters I believe that some of you gentlemen may like the following video. The gentleman who shot it is an American citizen currently living and working in England. Reading between the lines as it were, I believe that he is an engineer who works for Rolls Royce. Certainly he used to own a house in Derby which is where the headquarters of Rolls Royce is located. I believe that he now lives in the countryside near Derby. He has posted several videos of his experience of living in the UK. All of the aeroplanes featured in this video were originally powered by Rolls Royce engines which confirms my suspicion that he works for Rolls Royce.

I'm informed that these aircraft were fitted with De Havilland engines and not rolls Royce engines. My mistake. I stand corrected.

There are still some nice aircraft on display. Someone may be tempted to produce a replica.

I like jets and warbirds as much as the next fellow but that is about all you see at the local airshows. It is nice to see some variety.
