THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNEW IT
:yup:



First Jewish Chief of Staff appointed to head US Air Force


Hero of Gulf War and Kosovo had been shot down and trapped behind enemy lines. Now the Four Star General becomes USAF's first Jewish chief.





For the first time since its founding in 1947, the United States Air Force is going to be under the command of a Jewish Chief of Staff.

On Tuesday the Pentagon announced that it had appointed General David L. Goldfein to succeed incumbent USAF Chief of Staff, General Mark Welsh. Welsh is set to retire in July.

With more than three decades of serving in the USAF, Goldfein has built an impressive record both as a pilot and officer.

Goldfein is a veteran of the 1990-91 Gulf War, the 1998-1999 Kosovo War, and the war in Afghanistan. He flew combat missions in both the F-117 stealth fighter and F-16 Flying Falcon.

During a mission over the fomer Yugoslavia in 1999, Goldfein was shot down over enemy territory. Trapped behind enemy lines, Goldfein snuck across Serbian farms, hiding from enemy patrols, until he was able to reach the extraction point.

With enemy forces closing in, a rescue mission managed to save Goldfein, extracting him in the middle of a heavy firefight. The helicopter which recovered Goldfein was struck at least five times by enemy fire during the rescue operation.

“We never know when some young airman is going to risk everything to come pull us out,” Goldfein told the El Paso Times. “They get a bottle of scotch from me every year”.

Goldfein’s career impressed John McCain, chair of the Armed Services Committee, which must approve Goldfein’s appointment later this year.

A former naval aviator, McCain was also shot down in combat. McCain was eventually captured and held prisoner in a Vietnamese prisoner of war camp.

"He has an excellent bio and an excellent reputation," the Arizona Senator said. "From everything I've heard, he is pretty impressive."

For Goldfein, the US Air Force has become a part of his family heritage. His father served in the USAF, as did his older brother Stephen, who achieved the rank of Major General. Today, one of Goldfein’s two daughters also serves in the USAF.

US to give Israel 'largest military aid package in history'



White House responds to pressure by Senate, pledges to offer Israel unprecedented level of military aid.

The White House is reportedly planning to accept Israeli demands for increased military aid, following pressure by the US Senate to sign a new Memorandum of Understanding laying out US support to Israel for the next decade.

With the current Memorandum of Understanding set to expire in 2018, Israel has been pressuring the White House to enlarge the annual aid package from $3.1 billion to between $4-4.5 billion.

Israel has stated that it must increase its military spending to cope with growing threats from ISIS and the Iranian regime following last year’s nuclear deal.

Since the signing of the deal last July, Iran has gone on a shopping spree for military hardware, purchasing Russian missiles, submarines, tanks, and fighter aircraft.

On Monday the Senate signed a joint letter calling on the White House to finalize a new Memorandum of Understanding, including a raise in the level of aid offered to Israel. The non-binding bipartisan declaration was adopted by 83 senators, including 51 of the Senate’s 54 Republicans and 32 Democrats.

In response to the letter, a White House official pledged that the new Memorandum of Understanding would include the largest military aid package ever offered to a foreign nation.

“We are prepared to sign an MOU with Israel that would constitute the largest single pledge of military assistance to any country in US history.”

Despite the pledge, the White House has yet to specify how much will be included in the proposed MOU.

Try to get over it, "goyim", eventually ...






This masterwork of interpretative history begins with a bold declaration:

The Modern Age is the Jewish Age--and we are all, to varying degrees, Jews.

The assertion is, of course, metaphorical. But it underscores Yuri Slezkine's provocative thesis. Not only have Jews adapted better than many other groups to living in the modern world, they have become the premiere symbol and standard of modern life everywhere.

Slezkine argues that the Jews were, in effect, among the world's first free agents. They traditionally belonged to a social and anthropological category known as "service nomads," an outsider group specializing in the delivery of goods and services. Their role, Slezkine argues, was part of a broader division of human labor between what he calls Mercurians-entrepreneurial minorities--and Apollonians--food-producing majorities.

Since the dawning of the Modern Age, Mercurians have taken center stage . In fact, Slezkine argues, modernity is all about Apollonians becoming Mercurians--urban, mobile, literate, articulate, intellectually intricate, physically fastidious, and occupationally flexible. Since no group has been more adept at Mercurianism than the Jews, he contends, these exemplary ancients are now model moderns.

The book concentrates on the drama of the Russian Jews, including emigres and their offspring in America, Palestine, and the Soviet Union. But Slezkine has as much to say about the many faces of modernity--nationalism, socialism, capitalism, and liberalism--as he does about Jewry. Marxism and Freudianism, for example, sprang largely from the Jewish predicament, Slezkine notes, and both Soviet Bolshevism and American liberalism were affected in fundamental ways by the Jewish exodus from the Pale of Settlement. Rich in its insight, sweeping in its chronology, and fearless in its analysis, this sure-to-be-controversial work is an important contribution not only to Jewish and Russian history but to the history of Europe and America as well.

The Coming War in Space :cool:

The Joint Chiefs briefed President Donald Trump on space, as officials consider how to keep it benign amid Russia and China’s ambitions.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, California – Gen. David Goldfein, the fighter pilot who now serves as the Air Force's top officer, had an unorthodox priority on his mind when he and the rest of the Joint Chiefs of Staff sat down for their first meeting with President Donald Trump on Jan. 27 to outline for the incoming commander in chief their top operational concerns.

"We talked about space more than any other topic," Goldfein recalls from that session in "the Tank," the Pentagon's secure facility for top-level meetings, "because there's this debate going on now, and will go on for the remainder of this year: Where are we headed in the business of space?"

The debate centers on the 73 trillion cubic miles spanning everything from a few hundred miles above the Earth's surface to the farthest reaching satellites 22,000 miles out. It's a domain over which the U.S. claims it must continue to be the principal governing power if space is to remain a peaceful commons. And it involves both protecting orbiting U.S. assets as well as ensuring the safety of the vital military and commercial information they convey to Earth.

Losing U.S. dominance in space could have wide-reaching effects, American officials fear (...)

Discussions of war above the atmosphere often lead to breathless predictions about space-age battles.

In the unlikely event that, say, a Russian or Chinese satellite attacked a U.S. satellite, the American response would not center on firing back at it, says Navy Rear Adm. Brian Brown, deputy commander of the military's Joint Functional Component Command for Space, a key headquarters for monitoring and tracking space operations based here. Retribution in this hypothetical scenario would more likely take the form of a U.S. bomber attacking the foreign base that commanded those satellites.

When asked about U.S. capabilities to deploy weapons in space, Brown, Goldfein and other U.S. officials are tight-lipped.

"Our competitors out there have been watching the way we fight over the last 26 years. And they see our asymmetric advantage that very often comes from capabilities in space," Goldfein says. "They're looking for ways to deny that to us."

(addendum: SPACE DENIAL LAWS ahead!!! ;) )

Last week, Goldfein toured some of the military's central hubs for space operations, including the space command and launch facilities here, as well as an inconspicuous base in downtown Los Angeles.

Another concern for Goldfein has been how to refer to his service's role in space. In remarks in Washington, D.C., at the Air Force Association this week, the general referred to space as a "warfighting domain" – a term of art the military uses to describe areas where conflict takes place but also a standard term for young troops to understand the gravity of where they're operating.

"Hopefully in that process we'll keep busting down the barriers and the moats that have allowed space and air to actually become separate domains. The reality is, in the business of warfighting, they're completely connected," Goldfein says.

America's ambitions now center on standardizing how responsible countries should behave in space (...)

Trump and his staff were receptive to Goldfein's ambitions for space, the general says. The president announced in January he would place particular focus on missile defense.

"I'm going to be in this dialogue as chief of staff, I imagine, more than any other time in the U.S. Air Force mission. I think that's going to dominate my time as chief," Goldfein says. "And I love that."

Goldfein Urges Trump To Boost Air Force Readiness

(Addendum: reminds me very much of Einstein then.)

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein recently told President Donald Trump to boost the service’s readiness so it can perform all the critical missions it is tasked.

Goldfein said Friday that he had five minutes to discuss the Air Force when the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which includes the Air Force’s top officer, met briefly with Trump at the Pentagon Jan. 27 prior to James Mattis being sworn in as defense secretary. Goldfein gave Trump his eleveator pitch, explaining what the Air Force does to protect the United States.

Goldfein said the Air Force provides the president with two of three legs of the nuclear triad and, on the nation’s worse day, ensures the president is where he needs to be and has access to nuclear command and control. Goldfein said the Air Force also provides quality decision-making information via 12 satellite constellations and sensors in the air, land, sea, space, cyberspace and undersea. Goldfein said the joint force also achieves air and space superiority through a network of bases around the world.

The problem, he explained, is that these missions are a growth industry as every one of them is in greater and greater demand by the joint force. At the same time, Goldfein said 50,000 airmen have left the Air Force.

“We find ourselves, today, as an Air Force that is too big for the resources that we’ve been given and far too small for what the nation demands,” Goldfein told an audience at a Peter Huessy breakfast on Capitol Hill. “In between those two bookends lies risk.”

Fortunately for Goldfein, Mattis has his sights set on increasing readiness. During a trip visiting Asian allies, Mattis released a memo on Jan. 31 titled “Implementation Guidance for Budget Directives in the National Security Presidential Memorandum on Rebuilding the U.S. Armed Forces.”

The memo sets down Mattis’ “initial guidance” for DoD funding priorities for a fiscal year 2017 supplemental budget, the FY ’18 president’s budget request and the five-year defense plan that runs from 2019 to 2023.

DoD will approach the task of rebuilding the military in three phases, according to the document. Phase one will focus on improving warfighting readiness. The program will then move on to achieving “program balance by addressing pressing shortfalls.” In the third and final phase, Mattis plans to “build a larger, more capable and more lethal joint force" (Defense Daily, Feb. 2).

With Trump, Gingrich and GOP calling the shots, NASA may go back to the moon

by Joel Achenbach en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aach_%28toponymy%29 --- www.dict.cc/?s=Bach

In the spirit of promiscuous speculation, we will float this notion: The moon is back!

:chuckle:

This July 20, 1969 photo shows astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin Jr.
walking on the surface of the moon near the leg of the Lunar Module.

NASA may soon be told to get ready to do what it already did back in the 1960s and '70s — put people on the moon, this time to stay.

Some boilerplate background: During the Cold War space race, NASA's Apollo 11 mission in July 1969 succeeded in putting the first men on the moon. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and then 10 more American astronauts left boot prints in lunar regolith across six Apollo missions, the last in 1972. No human being has been beyond low Earth orbit since that final moonshot.

NASA, heeding Trump, may add astronauts to a test flight moon mission

by Joel Achenbach (meaning: see above)

President Trump has indicated that he wants to make a splash in space.

:D

It was launched into space on a test flight.

President Trump has indicated that he wants to make a splash in space. During his transition, he spoke with historian Douglas Brinkley about John F. Kennedy's famous 1961 vow to go to the moon before the decade was out. Now Trump and his aides may do something very similar: demand that NASA send astronauts to orbit the moon before the end of Trump's first term — a move that one Trump adviser said would be a clear signal to the Chinese that the U.S. intends to retain dominance in space.

war ahead



Both chambers of Congress just passed the NASA Authorization Act of 2017.
With this transformative development, the space agency got a lot more than just $19.508 billion in funding.
They also got a very clear mandate:
Get humanity to Mars.


futurism.com/us-government-issues-nasa-demand-get-humans-to-mars-by-2033/



Tuesday March 7, 2017, Congress passed a NASA authorization bill for the first time in nearly six and a half years.
The March 7 approval in the House of Representatives follows the unanimous consent in the Senate of February 17.
The House approved the NASA Transition Authorization Act of 2017, S.442, via voice vote after a short discussion without opposition.

AIPAC

Monday March 27, 2017
Rep. Marc Veasey (D-TX)


Israel in My State – F-35




Please welcome from the 33rd Congressional District of Texas, Marc Veasey.

Where I'm from, we have a saying. Everything is bigger in Texas. The expertise of Lockheed Martin engineers working in my hometown of Fort Worth with an assist from our allies in Israel proves that the Texas-made F-35 fighter jet isn't just bigger; it's better, faster, and stronger.

The F-35 is the most advanced fighter jet ever created. The United States military has trained our very best pilots to utilize these unique capabilities, advanced stealth, navigation and radar systems, and an array of sensors and computer systems that give pilots a tactical edge in combat. None of this would be possible without crucial support from our friends in Israel. The F-35 would not fly without Israeli technology. Over 1,000 wings will be produced in Israel and attached in Fort Worth, Texas.

Elbit Systems of America, a subsidiary of a leading Israeli technology company, has a facility in Fort Worth that I have personally toured. They helped design the F-35's high-tech helmets. It allows pilots to aim their weapons with eye-tracking software, flip to night vision goggles with the flick of a switch, and see in all directions around, above, and below the plane with advanced camera technology.

I'm proud that my city produces the jets that protects our skies and helps make the helmets that protect our service members. As a supporter of the U.S.-Israel alliance, I'm especially proud that the greatest fighter jet the world has ever seen is also protecting our greatest partner in the Middle East. Israel received its first shipment of F-35 jets this past winter and by 2024, a total of 50 F-35s will guarantee Israeli air superiority for decades to come.

We often talk about foreign aid and what the United States gets out of investing in our allies. Aid to Israel ensures our strongest democratic partner in the Middle East can defend itself from threats and protect our interests in a dangerous region. That alone makes Israel security a worthwhile investment. But in Fort Worth, we see the additional benefits every day. That's because a key provision of our assistance mandates that Israel spend the majority of the money it receives buying American technology.

Israel's order of 50 F-35s is growing our local economy and creating jobs for Texas in the district I represent. As you meet with your representatives on Tuesday, don't forget about the F-35's impact. Without annual security assistance, without the 10-year, $38 billion Memorandum of Understanding between the United States and Israel, without the imperative to maintain Israel's qualitative military edge, without these crucial policies that you advocate for, Israel's acquisition of the F-35 simply would not be possible. The F-35 shows the world what Israel and America can do when we work together.

Protecting America's finest with state-of-the-art technology driving economic growth and creating jobs—that's Israel and my state. Thank you.

Military leaders warn of bleak future with short-term defense funding




Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein spoke of a severe active-duty fighter pilot shortage and said by the end of the year, the service would be short 1,000 pilots.

“It takes approximately 10 years and $10 million to train a fighter pilot,” Goldfein said. “One thousand short equates to $10 billion of capitol investment that walked out the door and will take us 10 years to replace that experience.”


April 5, 2017 origin-nyi.thehill.com/policy/defense/327494-military-leaders-warn-of-bleak-future-with-short-term-defense-funding



BOOSTING THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX aka WAR INDUSTRY


emo style





Air Force Gen. David Goldfein said his service still has not recovered from sharp cuts in defense funding during the 2013 sequestration round. He said the Air Force will be forced to stop flying when funding runs out.


Air Force Public Affairs, on af.mil, reported Wednesday that pilot training would be impacted in July, thousands of family moves would be affected, retention bonuses would be delayed and morale would suffer.

“As a service chief, I have many obligations, but one remains paramount,” Goldfein said. “Every Airman we send into harm’s way must be properly organized, trained, equipped and led to succeed in their mission, and we must take care of their families while they’re gone. This is our moral obligation. A yearlong CR makes meeting this obligation extremely difficult.”


April 6, 2017 www.timesrecordnews.com/story/news/politics/2017/04/06/service-chiefs-paint-dire-picture-military-branches/100137044/


Gen. David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, said every service chief visits frontline fighting forces and can “give that speech” on why they are there, separated from family and putting their lives at risk. The hardest question to field, he said, is why Americans back home don’t seem to be paying attention.

“Are we serious about this or not? Is the risk, going forward, worth it or not? And I’m not sure if we don’t even pass a budget that we can look them in the eye and tell them that what they’re doing … is on the minds of this Congress,” he said.

Adopting a full-year CR would mean canceled training, costly maintenance delays and supply shortages across the military. But deploying forces would still be well-trained and equipped and other units would still deploy if called, Goldfein said.

The Air Force chief advised adversaries listening to testimony on budget challenges to still know, if they were to challenge the U.S. military, they will lose.

“I’ll give you just one example: If [Russian President Vladimir] Putin makes a bad choice, he will face the combined economic and military might of 28 nations, and the most powerful alliance we’ve ever been part of. And that spells his loss.”
