The government will allow gun-rights activists to post plans for 3-D printable guns, beginning Aug. 1, CNN reported. The settlement marks the end of a legal battle that began when Cody Wilson posted plans for a 3-D printed handgun in 2013 called "The Liberator." That single-shot pistol was made almost completely out of ABS plastic, the same material used to make Lego bricks. The only metal parts were a firing pin and a piece of metal that was included to comply with the Undetectable Firearms ...
Authored by Tom Streithorst via The American Conservative, It's become obsolete, the days of conquest are behind us, yet the military-industrial complex grinds on all the same. America spends more on its military than all its enemies put together yet it still can’t win wars. Failed adventures in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan have drained America’s power and diminished its prestige. The bloated Pentagon budget actually makes us weaker. Here’s the weird bit: nobody seems to care. If ...
Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com, The Federal Emergency Management Agency has admitted they made deadly mistakes in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. FEMA admits that they were not prepared at all to handle the situation in Puerto Rico, and people likely lost their lives relying on the government agency. FEMA’s after-action report details how the agency’s warehouse on the island of Puerto Rico was nearly empty due to relief efforts from Hurricane Irma when Maria made landfall las ...
Chinese shipbuilders are constructing eight new submarines to protect its ally Pakistan with an aim to counter India. Currently, Pakistan’s Navy has ten subs, which suggests their submarine fleet could expand by 80 percent upon delivery, expected in the mid to late 2020s. Relations between both countries are incredibly complex, as the Kashmir conflict and the numerous military disputes on the Line of Control (LoC) have intensified in recent years. According to unnamed sources, as quoted per Z ...

During a press conference last month, President Donald Trump ordered the Pentagon to “immediately” establish a “space force” as an independent service branch. As we have highlighted before, the Pentagon is preparing for decades of hybrid wars across multiple domains - space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime - against Russia and China in the 2025-2040 timeframe. According to an unnamed Russian defense industry source, as quoted by Sputnik News, Russia is developing a new electronic warfare airc ...
Since formally launching in 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been riddled with multiple unforeseen problems of a magnitude equaling the hugely ambitious infrastructural project spanning a continent and affecting 4.4 billion people, which will involve a total investment from Beijing that could surpass a trillion dollars. Foremost among those problems has been security as China has brokered multi-billion dollar projects in less than stable political enviro ...
The People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAF) will send H-6K bombers, J-10A fighters, JH-7A fighter-bombers, IL-76 and Y-9 transport aircraft, and a team of airborne troops to Russia for the upcoming International Army Games (IAG) 2018. The war games, first launched by Russia in 2014, will be co-organized this year by China, Russia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Iran and Armenia from July 29 to August 11, said CGTN News. IAG 2018 will consist of 28 ‘real combat’ military competitions. Chin ...
Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com, Police in New Jersey have officially crossed the [thin blue] line and literally attempted to confiscate guns from an army veteran without a warrant.  But it didn’t go as planned, because  Leonard Cottrell Jr. refused to comply with the orders of the cops. Eventually, all gun confiscation will be carried out by the police; who “don’t make the laws, they just enforce them,” and Cottrell found this out the hard way.  After serving two tours in Opera ...
As discussed previously, the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command, or TRADOC, drafted a new strategy for how soldiers will operate, fight, and campaign successfully across multiple domains—space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime—against all enemies (Russia and China) in the 2025-2040 timeframe. Warrior Maven has confirmed that the Army is literally "gearing up" for decades of hybrid conflict, and in doing so, testing and prototyping self-generating “Ironman-like” soldier exoskeletons. These “b ...
