It has been barely two weeks since China joined Russia in the "Vostok" war games, the largest display of Eurasian military might since 1981 when the Soviet Union was still a global superpower, and already the US has found an opening to try and drive a wedge between China and Russia, or at least express its displeasure with their increasingly close relationship. Amid a simmering trade dispute between the US and China, the US has imposed sanctions on a branch of the Chinese military in retaliat ...
This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge Scientists are concerned about the next significant “space weather” event, which begins at the sun in the center of the solar system. Severe space weather occurs less frequently than traditional weather on Earth but can be more destructive in nature. The sun is now headed towards a solar minimum, forecasted to arrive in 2019 as the Sun changes over from Solar Cycle 24 to Solar Cycle 25. The Sun goes through 11-year cycles, ...
SkyNet is one step closer to reality. A US Reaper drone shot down another with a missile, the Air Force said on Tuesday. The incident, which took place in November of last year and involved an unmanned target drone, was the first ever case of a drone shooting down another another aircraft, and according to Popular Mechanics, the event is a watershed moment in the history of aerial warfare, as unmanned aircraft begin to muscle in on air-to-air combat, which until now was the exclusive domain o ...
This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper When Hurricane Florence slowed to a Category 1, people breathed a sigh of relief in hopes that the damage would not be as great as had been originally feared. People scoffed, “It’s ONLY a Category 1. We’ve seen worse before.” But, as I’ve often written, there isn’t any such thing as “only” when it comes to hurricanes. Florence stalled just off the coast, picking up more water from the ocean for days and that water ...
The latest news from Yellowstone National Park is a little terrifying, but experts keep reminding us that we have nothing to fear.  The thermal activity in the park has been increasing lately, and geysers have reportedly been shooting out rocks. Authorities have been forced to shut down certain areas of the park after hot plumes of water erupted from the ground several feet up in the air.  This prompted fears that new geysers are forming over the caldera.  New vents were s ...
As the flooding from Hurricane Florence dissipates, North Carolina residents could face significant public-health and environmental crisis after at least 17 animal waste pits, coal ash facilities, and human sewage plants across the state released millions of gallons of toxic liquid into nearby communities. On an aerial tour Monday of pig country, housing the nation's largest hog producing counties, many anaerobic lagoons or manure lagoons, a human-made outdoor earthen basin filled with animal ...
Authored by 'Selco' via Daisy Luther's Organic Prepper blog, When finally the SHTF was over, when peace came it was not like we imagined it. It was very different from what we imagined it while we were in the middle of the SHTF. It was different on many levels. During the war, many ceasefires were signed, and many peace treaties, local or countrywide. Many times high delegations from the EU came to our country or in surrounding countries. They held long elaborate peace conferences wi ...
When it comes to global health policy, Bill Gates has never been known for subtlety. So it's hardly surprising that his charitable foundation's latest report on the greatest challenges facing mankind might make some readers want to lock themselves in an indefinite quarantine. Readers familiar with Gates' previous warnings about the rising risk of a global pandemic will recognize the top three risks: antibiotic resistance, governmental reluctance to fund health-care solutions and the next glob ...
Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson on Monday called for a significant increase in the service’s size, as it prepares for the possibility of war against a major nation such as China or Russia, in the next decade. Under the expansion plan outlined by Wilson, the Air Force needs to grow by 74 additional squadrons, a 25% increase, by 2030. She said the number was based on internal reports, using intelligence estimates of what the service would need as far as manpower to be victorious in the next ...
President Trump indicated that a decision on the future of US policy in Syria is coming soon in remarks made at a press conference with his Polish counterpart. Speaking alongside President Andrzej Duda, Trump said the Monday night downing of a Russian maritime surveillance plane by accidental Syrian friendly fire was "a very sad thing". Trump's remarks did not include criticism of Putin, and seemed to signal regret over Monday night's dramatic escalation over Syria after a massive Israeli att ...
