The aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush, currently in the Persian Gulf, is holding nothing back as F/A-18 Super Hornets deployed from the supercarrier blast Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria without pause.

“The precision strike operations being carried out by the Bush Carrier Strike Group in the eastern Mediterranean Sea continue to demonstrate the tremendous warfighting capability and flexibility of the U.S. Navy,” said Vice Admiral Christopher Grady, commander of the US Sixth Fleet. 

“By defeating violent extremists in Iraq and Syria, we are simultaneously supporting two separate geographic combatant commands. We remain committed to defeating Daesh, committed to our allies and partners, and committed to global security.”

The inauguration of US President Donald Trump has also marked an uptick in American military force deployed against Daesh. The USS Bush was deployed in February against the terrorist group, and in March the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit and 75th Ranger Regiment were deployed to provide artillery support to the coalition forces attempting to wrest the Syrian city of Raqqa from Daesh hands.

Boeing Wins $50M to Extend Service Life of F-18 Super Hornet Aircraft

This is the USS Bush’s second deployment against Daesh as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. The first deployment came in 2014, and then, too, the carrier was known for being a launching platform for Super Hornets.

The Super Hornet and its cousin, the larger but slower Hornet, are the US Navy’s preferred fighter aircraft for carrier deployment. The Super Hornet is also a known favorite of pilots, who show appreciate its speed, maneuverability and armaments. 

The Super Hornet’s perhaps most famous fighting feat came in the early days of the Gulf War, when a pair of the F/A-18s needed o

Infringing the right to bear arms- You can’t carry here

Give Me Liberty

H/T JPFO.

The failed liberal wet dream gun free zones.

By Rob Morse. April 22nd, 2017

Your right to protect yourself shall not be infringed..well..except where it already is infringed. That is what my young liberal friend told me. Here is what he said.

I think we should pass a law to ban guns. That way we wouldn’t have any more violence and we could close the prisons. It’d be great.

You think so? We tried it before. It is called prohibition. It failed when we prohibited alcohol. It failed with prohibiting drugs. It is failing today with prohibiting guns.

But we need to do something. Maybe we should take it piece at a time. We don’t have to prohibit anything, we can just regulate all we want. Yeah, that’s it.
I know. Hospitals should be gun free zones. Surely you wouldn’t want sick people to get their hands…

BUILD THE WALL

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

The Democrats are bluffing.  The last thing they want is to do is go on the record that they would rather shut down the government than pay for a border wall.  The next to the last thing they want is to go on record with a vote against the wall.  They know that to do either of these things would bring them no votes just more people outraged over them continuing to choose illegal immigrants over citizens.

Have the fight.  Call the vote.  Don’t follow Ryan in funding Planned Parenthood while refusing to fund the wall.  Don’t throw us under the bus for political expediency.

Obamacare is still here.  China isn’t a currency manipulator.  NATO is all right.  Intervention in foreign wars and military confrontations seem to be the order of the day.  Hopefully we won’t be singing with the WHO, “The new boss is the same as the old…

USS Bush launches Super Hornets to pound Islamic State – News – Stripes @USNavy

Crews fire up a cluster of F/A-18 Super Hornets every hour as part of pre-flight preparation on the USS George H.W. Bush in the Persian Gulf on April 19, 2017. The Bush is launching air strikes on the Islamic State.
SCOTT WYLAND/STARS AND STRIPES

Supersonic F/A-18 Super Hornets soar off the USS George H.W. Bush to bomb Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria at all hours of the day and night.

Their pilots speak almost affectionately when describing the Super Hornet’s speed, maneuverability and destructive power.

This is the second time the Bush has been deployed to battle ISIS. The first time was in 2014.

The Bush launched airstrikes against ISIS in February while in the Mediterranean, then traveled to the Persian Gulf to continue the assault with the Super Hornets.

Trump says ‘major, major’ conflict with North Korea possible, but seeks diplomacy

How to Provide

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday a major conflict with North Korea is possible in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute.

“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely,” Trump told Reuters in an Oval Office interview ahead of his 100th day in office on Saturday.

Nonetheless, Trump said he wanted to peacefully resolve a crisis that has bedeviled multiple U.S. presidents, a path that he and his administration are emphasizing by preparing a variety of new economic sanctions while not taking the military option off the table.

Numbers 11:4-5, 10-23

Numbers 11:4

The mischief in the camp usually commenced with the mixed multitude, and it is the same with the church of God now: the merely nominal Christians in her are the tinder for Satan’s sharks. It is sad, however, to note that the Israelites were ready enough to follow the bad example of the mixed company. They murmured wantonly. They did not want for either bread or water, but pined for luxuries. Such complaining is sure to be punished.

Numbers 11:5; 10-15

The meekest man failed in his meekness. He was so provoked by the senseless clamours of the people that he spake unadvisedly with his lips unto God. The best of men are subject to infirmities. The Lord in Moses case was very pitiful towards his servant, and sent him help that he might the better bear the burden of so great a charge.

Defeating Worry

StopAndPrayTV

Here are seven truths that may help you in defeating worry:

1. If God gave us the great gift of life, surely He will give us the things necessary to support that life:

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” (Matthew 6:25)

2. Since there is no worry in the birds’ lives, why should there be in yours?

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:26)

3. Worry is useless and changes nothing:

Which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” (Matthew 6:27)

4. If…

I enjoyed this movie, but for such a compelling story, it deserves an all star cast. Furthermore, I can identify with the storyline: I too was incarcerated several years for a crime I did not commit. It would have been great if I had a friend to come to my rescue in the same manner. After six years of battling the system, I won a favorable ruling through a habeas court. To my dismay, after having spent in upwards of $60,000 toward legal expenses and exhaustive efforts, the State’s Attorney General appealed my favorable ruling. So after languishing for another year,  the state supreme court sided with the attorney general and let my wrongful conviction stand. Tragic but true. Hopefully someday the world will hear my story. Today I’m still dealing with the aftermath. I feel so broken and let down…
