The days of Maverick flipping a bird at a MiG while Inverted are over.
“Gates Announces Major Pentagon Priority Shifts.”
Defense Secretary Robert Gates‘ pledge today to draw up plans to implement President Obama’s goal of homosexualizing our military — and to remove a key means of identifying violating homosexual service members.
ANAL MASTURBATORS USED BY SOCIALISTS TO DESTABILIZE THE CONSERVATIVE UNITED STATES
F-22 Stealth Fighter Engine made by Pratt And Whitney.
RHINO John McCain And Barrack Obama, Stopped Production Of The F-22 to Enfranchise General Electric. General Electric Controls Main Stream Media And Jeff Immelt CEO of G.E. Was Appointed By Obama To Serve On The Economic Recovery Advisory Board.
To replace the F-22 is the F-35
BUT G.E. JUST SHUT DOWN PRODUCTION OF THE F-35. AMERICA NOW HAS NEITHER FIGHTER JET BEING BUILT AND MORE AMERICAN JOBS HAVE BEEN DESTROYED. YOU MAY THANK BARACK OBAMA, JEFF IMMELT OF G.E. AND RHINO JOHN MCCAIN. I GUESS THE ABUSE OF STIMULATION MONEY WASN’T ENOUGH TO CRIPPLE THE UNITED STATES. WE ALSO HAD TO UN EMPLOY 95,000 CITIZENS.
General Electric Now Shuts Down The Production Of The F-35
PORK GOES THE ENGINE . . . JSF STYLE (UPDATED)
I hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but my greatest fears about how the defense industry operates are being realized these days by developments surrounding the Joint Strike Fighter‘s power plant(s).
When you have an airplane that is already wrestling with a flyaway unit cost that is well above program estimates ($80 million versus $65 million), more than a year behind the developmental test schedule for the Navy variant, and increasingly overweight the notion of an “alternative engine” just reeks of – dare I say it – pork.
Aviation Week reports the following: “The House Appropriations defense subcommittee added $480 million to the Joint Strike Fighter research and development account to fund continued work on the alternate engine for the F-35. The Pentagon argued against funding the alternate engine for fear it would reduce the focus and resources necessary for the program of record. Lawmakers also add $200 million to the development account to address ‘unfunded information assurance requirements’ driven by Defense Dept. policy updates, the committee’s report says.”
Hmmmm . . . so Pentagon doesn’t want the alternative engine but lawmakers are shoving down their throats anyway. How can that be? Don’t congressmen get all teary-eyed when they talk about how they support the troops?
Well, let’s take a look at how this particular game is played – which happens to be a nice window into how the defense game is too often played overall.
MOST ADVANCED FIGHTER JET IN WORLD HISTORY F-22 RAPTOR
Representative Jean Schmidt, the hawkish Republican from the Ohio district that hosts a General Electric engine manufacturing plant has once again re-inserted the alternative engine funding line into the defense budget. At the same time, Rolls-Royce, the alternative engine co-manufacturer, is calling in a couple of markers on the Hill. First, Rolls-Royce is a British company run by British people who have influence over Parliament whose members want some love because of their support for the Iraq War. Second, Rolls-Royce jumped the gun and built a huge JSF engine manufacturing facility at their plant outside of Indianapolis and the company’s lobby arm is executing a full court press to ensure that the American taxpayer pays for it (instead of Rolls-Royce shareholders).
And while – as a former Tomcat guy – I’m not overwhelmed by engines made by Pratt and Whitney, I have to believe that company is capable of making an engine that’ll work over the JSF’s service life.
The scariest part is all of this is being conducted in plain sight. Will GE and R-R get their way in an environment that is funding a war that costs $12 billion a month? Stay tuned . . .

(Updated July 31 at 0016Z.) CBS News is adding Ted Kennedy to the pork list
with a report that suggests he is trying to bring JSF jobs to the GE plant in Lynn, Mass. And check out our favorite editor Christian in this news clip.
Guess What Obama Has Accomplished?
F-22 The Most Sophisticated Fighter In The World Is Shut Down Including 95,000 Jobs During His Orchestrated American Collapse.
Now Conveniently, G.E. His Collusion Comrade – Shuts Down The F-35 Fighter Jet.
Don’t Forget G.E. Was Awarded The Contract To Produce The F-35 Engine Which They Shut Down.
G.E. Is Obama Socialist Thug Partner, Who Also Controls Main Stream Media MSNBC Etc.
Common Sense Dictates To Maintain 95,000 Jobs Producing F-22 During Stimulus Money Printing And Not
To Shut It Down To Make U.S. Subservient To Socialist Ideals And Inferior To Russia/China.
We produced 183 F-22s And Need Minimum Of 300 As Russia Is Producing 300 T50s. At First U.S. Was To Produce 700 F-22s, But With Socialist Jeffrey Immelt (CEO Of G.E. On
Obama’s ‘Recovery Panel, Well Its Easy To See Who Is Serving Who.
CHINA’S J-11 Has Beat U.S. F-35
THE J-11B IS NOT A COPY OR EVEN A DEVELOPMENT OF THE SU-27.
If you bother to read aviation articles, the J-11B is a CHINESE-DEVELOPED fighter using 100% CHINESE COMPONENTS AND DESIGN, but with a Su-27SK airframe as a jumpstart.
This is a video of the J-11B (along with some J-11As and Su-30MKKs).
NOTE: THE J-11B HAS DEFEATED THE F-35 IN SIMULATED AIR COMBAT
The J-11B is a Chinese-designed, 4.5-generation, indigenous fighter jet that has EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH combat, dogfighting, and multirole capabilities (as said by Wikipedia). The J-11B is superior to the Su-27 and Su-30, and lies on a complete different generation than of the J-11A. The J-11B also has superior air-to-ground and naval strike capabilites, and is compatible with a huge variety of Chinese and Russian weapons.
The specs of the J-11B are FAR GREATER than the J-11A. We don’t have the J-11B specifications, but here are the J-11A specifications:
A new strike variant called J-11BS has come out. Superior to the F-15K Slam Eagle.
J-11A SPECIFICATIONS (NOT J-11B)
- Speed: Mach 2.35 (2,500 km/h, 1,600 mph)
- Combat range: 2,000 km
- Ferry range: 3,720 km (2,010 nm, 2,310 mi)
- Service ceiling 19,000 m (62,000 ft)
