Joe Biden's inspirational message to Morehouse grads; America hates you and you are perpetual victims.

Iran's president, foreign minister, other officials confirmed dead in helicopter crash

Seems to have been bad weather.... but a few metal shaving or sand in the transmission have similar results.

At any rate good riddance.

So Biden wants to destroy the democrat parties' version of "democracy" and impose a top down equity.

That speech writer is steeped in Marxism and Critical Theory.

By the way, Joe Biden attended an HBCU. After he graduated, he led SEAL Team Six in the raid that liberated Auschwitz (Roger Staubach was his XO). Last year when he met Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, she hugged him and said “thank you”. For what? he asked. “For liberating Auschwitz“, she said. True story.

Oakland CA. copper thieves take wire out of traffic lights.

Oakland makes the ration, sane decision to just remove traffic lights.

Oakland locals blame homeless encampment for city removing traffic lights to stop copper thieves

How the hell does an "ICC arrest warrant" work when the ICC has no police power and no police?

I remember numerous protests against the Shah back when I was in college.   I guess that since Dhimmi Carter's installation of Khomeini, the Iranians have had an advanced-study course in the truth of the old adage that more tears are shed over answered prayers than over unanswered ones.

Presumably they would request/demand that member nations carry out the warrant.

Joe Biden reminisces about that time he was Vice President during the pandemic, and Obama told him "go to Detroit, and help fix it!", and he did.  

Well.  Okay.

MV Dali refloated and move to a dock.

Q: Do we have any report analyzing the crash into the bridge and what went wrong beyond the early speculation seen in video footage?

The nexus of the protest in Iran was Tehran University.

The Shah played a dicey game with the Soviets, non-lethal military transport equipment he bought from Russia. Also Russian and Bulgarian exchange students.

We learned later from friends in the intel business many of the "exchange" students were agents.

We see the same pattern here now. A few paid Marxist agitators on campus, a lot of organization via TikTok using Russian and ChiCom controlled accounts.

The preliminary NTSB report is out.

What happened is main circuit breakers tripped causing loss of power and steering. The main propulsion using that main power for things like lubrication, fuel injectors, etc.... So they lost steering and propulsion. The emergency generators came on, but those don't run steering or the engine systems. By the time they got everything switched over to the secondary breakers it was too late.

Why the main breakers tripped is not in the report.

Thanks for the update. That would indeed seem to be the linchpin issue.

The first one is clearly not an engineer. No,the gas does not burn in pistons; it does in cylinders. A few other errors too.

Chief MAKOi is an engineer, and I note he skips over what was going on on the bridge, but covers engineering very weool
