Might the walls be closing in on Biden instead? And I'm assuming this is coming out now because it gives some Dems a way to muscle into the presidential selection process. 

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) wrote to Gestapo chief Merrick Garland and his henchman, FBI top dog Christopher Wray, on Wednesday with some allegations that were positively explosive. Grassley and Comer say that they’ve “received legally protected and highly credible unclassified whistleblower disclosures” regarding a “criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions.”


The implications of this cannot be understated. It would be no surprise if Old Joe were confirmed as the corrupt kleptocrat he has long been reputed to be, but if this bribery scheme did end up reaching Obama, it could have a serious impact on the Democrats’ present electoral chances and even upon their continued ability to sew up elections left and right by means of ballot harvesting, mail-in ballots, and other present-day chicanery. The only problem is that the very agencies that ought to be energetically pursuing this issue are part of the same corrupt Leftist establishment that dominates Washington. Consequently, it’s not at all clear that the truth about this will ever come out.

Might be a sign the DNC establishment wants to dump Biden.  Who knows.

The plane that keeps giving. Troops and pilots love it.

The F-35 just can't come close in CAS.

Argument for retiring it is that it would not survive in an environment with an adversary with modern air defenses.  Of course, we could maybe take those out… with those F-35s.

F-35 fell back into the old McNamara fallacy of "muliti" role.

Col. Boyd and the Fighter Mafia gave us the F-15, F-16, F-18, and A-10.

IMAO the F-35 will be very vulnerable in CAS due to the fuel being used as a coolant around the engine. One round into that coolant system and it's a fireball.

I’m no engineer, but that seems like a terrible idea even on a civilian aircraft.

It's how rocket engines are cooled. The F-135 engine generates 40,000lbs of thrust. It's and elegant engineering solution cooling without have a special separate cooling system, it also pre-heats the fuel making the burn more efficient.

In a combat aircraft is seems vaguely nuts, but I'm just an armchair quarterback.

I don't think Thomas' trips involved any conflict of interest.

The wise latin clearly had a conflict.

3 masked teens jump on school bus, shoot at 14-year-old boy's head, beat him after gun misfires

PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. -- Three masked teens jumped on a school bus in Maryland on Monday afternoon and targeted a 14-year-old boy --- the last remaining student on the bus, WJLA reported.

One of the masked teens pointed a gun at the boy and pulled the trigger three times.

Three times, the gun didn't fire. Police later found three live rounds on the Prince George's County bus.

"This was an attempted murder, plain and simple. Call it what it is," said Martin Diggs, head of the bus drivers' union.

The problem with cooling a jet engine is there needs to be a way to dump the heat. Combat aircraft cannot afford the weight of a separate cooling system. Dumping heat into the fuel works because the fuel gets burned anyway. The exhaust is hot and not having any other radiator means that is the only target for heat-seeking missiles.

The SR-71 did the same thing. I read a recent article that all the heat was dumped into the fuel, including the spacesuits the pilot and RIO wore, so often, they'd refuel just to cool off.

The fuel had to be specially formulated to have a very high flashpoint and the tanks were filled with nitrogen IIRc as the fuel was used.
