US Successfully Tests Advanced Hypersonic Weapon

"The U.S. Army on Thursday carried out a successful initial test of a cutting-edge technology that might be incorporated into a non-nuclear "prompt global strike" capability that could be targeted anywhere around the world within an hour", according to GlobalSecurityNewswire and other news groups.

"The vehicle tested this week employs a conical design that has been around for decades and can travel up to 6,100 miles an hour or at Mach 8 speed."

"AHW technologies, if proven successful, might be incorporated into the Air Force Conventional Strike Missile, which could be the first such prompt-attack capability to be fielded.

Defense Cuts Lead to Smallest Navy since 1915

From the AP, "the Pentagon faces some $500 billion in reductions in projected spending over 10 years — on top of the $450 billion already under way."

This is the result of Obama's Defense cuts and the failure of Republicans to extract themselves from such a trap as the SuperCommitte.  Boehner is no Gingrich, when it comes to House maneuvering.

"...eliminating one of three "legs" of the U.S. nuclear arsenal — would force a historic shift in nuclear planning. Panetta said he would be forced to eliminate intercontinental ballistic missiles, the globe-circling missiles based in underground silos. These currently consist of 450 Minuteman III missiles based in the north-central U.S."

The concept of the Nuclear Triad was to give a triple fail-safe safety feature.  If an adversary were to solve one key technological breakthrough to destroy one aspect of the Triad, we would still have 2 large   mechanisms to ensure Nuclear Deterrence. These consisted of a Strategic Bomber Force, Strategic ICBM Force, and Strategic Submarine Force.

Other programs targeted for termination or further cut would include the Joint Strike Fighter, next generation Ballistic Missile Submarine, new Army helicopter program and sophisticated Drone programs.

As the US winds down in Afghanistan and Iraq, the US Military is beginning to plan for both fighting a more selective War on Terror and planning for future adversaries.  That means China.  The new Air-Sea Battle Concept, which focuses on Anti-Access and Area Denial countermeasures, would be hit hard by the Budget Cuts.

US Vulnerability to Chinese supersonic Anti Ship Cruise Missiles and the new DF 21D Anti-Carrier Ballistic Missile has the US cutting critical parts of Air-Sea Battle, at a time when Chinese technology is at record levels and gaining rapidly through both acquisitions from the Russians and stealing Western technology.

Upcoming...Specific Articles on Chinese ASBM DF-21D Carrier Killer and Air-Sea Battle Concept coming this week.

5 European Socialist Virtues that are Turning US into Italy

Germans love David Hasselhoff, but they will not love being the financial strongman of Europe.  They will be expected to bail out Portugal, Greece etc...and now Italy.

America can't afford to bail out Italy, we have California to worry about.

For generations, Liberal Democrats have extolled the virtues of Europe and pointed to Europe as the "shining city on a hill".  Now, you rarely hear that yelled from the mountain top.  However, Obama and Pelosi's reign in the House have done far worse.  They are actually emulating Europe and Italy via policy.

 The UK's Daily Mail has the goods on Bialek :  
"...a friend of Ms Bialek, from Chicago, told the New York Post: 'She has a very infectious personality. It’s easy to see how she won [Cain] over. But the reality of her situation is -- she’s a complete gold digger. It’s all about the money.'...

...the source said: 'Most of her jobs ended in termination. It’s always the employer’s fault, not hers. ...'This is a lady who lives off the system. She is hellbent on finding a way of never having to work and living the lifestyle she wants to live, a very affluent lifestyle."

"Details of a number of legal and financial difficulties have since emerged, with the Chicago Tribune listing a long history with tax evasion and late or missed credit card payments...DETAILS FOLLOW

Voyager 2 Launched in 1977 Keeps on Ticking into Deep Space

From"Launched in 1977, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are each equipped with six sets, or pairs, of to control their movement. These include three pairs of primary thrusters and three backup, or redundant, pairs. Voyager 2 is currently using the two pairs of backup thrusters that control the pitch and yaw motion of the spacecraft. Switching to the backup thruster pair that controls roll motion will allow engineers to turn off the heater that keeps the fuel line to the primary thruster warm."

"Voyager 2 will relay the results of the switch back to Earth on Nov. 13. The signal will arrive on Earth on Nov. 14.

Water-Boarding Politico.........The Conservative-Cain Strategy

I would take great joy in personally waterboarding the "journ-o-lists" who wrote this meaningless hit piece on Herman Cain.  But I'd also enjoy doing that to GOP Establishment hacks like Joe Scarborough and Karl Tokyo Rove, as well.

Information is important and I'd love to know whether it was Romney or Perry's campaign which gave their opposition research to Politico.  I have my feelings on this, but I won't speculate until more information comes out on it.

The bottom line is that these were allegations made 20 years ago that were found to be "baseless and false"

The media is now spinning Cain's version is a false and misleading way.  Cain has added more information and the Leftist media and GOP Establishment hacks like Tokyo Rove are claiming Cain has changed his story.  That is false.

Herman Cain is the last viable conservative left standing, thus thus attempt at his destruction.  If Cain is out of the way, the Establishment has it's glorious match-up...Romney versus Obama.  A weak Obama actually has a shot to beat a weak Romney, who really can't attack ObamaCare.  It also gives Obama, a politician with no economic successes, an opportunity to go on the offensive.  He can attack Romney's flip-flops, which are numerous and substantial.

Conservatives can still prevail, but it will take  some forward thinking.  The Conservatives will Prevail with 3 Actions:

1.  Conservatives must Rally around Cain - Now...We cannot expect the campaigns of Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum and especially Perry to dropout and support Cain.  It is up to the conservative supporters of said candidates.  This will take thinking ahead and supporting ONE Conservative, now.

2.  Read Above
3.  Read Above...It is that simple.  Romney has no chance if Conservatives are united.  None.
