  • What Would It Take To Build A World Without Globalists?

    Authored by Brandon Smith via, You can bet that whenever you find people analyzing the root of a problem you will also find other people trying to derail those efforts with dishonest arguments. For reasons that we can guess at but are rarely able to confirm, there are some folks out there that get rather agitated at constructive discussion among their fellow humans. One of the most common tactics for hijacking the discussion of a problem is to suggest that it is “all pointless”...

  • The U.S. Navy Isn't Building 'Battleships' Anymore

    James Holmes Security, Sorry.  In that vein, it’s fair to say the DDG-1000 suffers from the same problem bedeviling the rest of the U.S. Navy surface fleet. Assume the advanced gun system eventually boasts the same range against warships it boasts against land targets, eighty-three nautical miles. Guns can disgorge a large volume of fire, to the tune of hundreds of rounds, compared to the ship’s eighty-round missile magazine. That’s good. Over the years it’s become commonplace for writers to...

  • Fire! Here's All the Battleships That Would Have Been Built If No World War II

    Robert Farley Security, The one and only Robert Farley gives us his take on what could have been. The late 1930s promised a renewed era of battleship construction, similar in some ways to the bonanza that immediately followed the construction of the HMS Dreadnought. The “naval holiday” restrictions imposed by the Washington Naval Treaty system were relaxing, and in any case Japan and Italy had determined to abandon the system, reducing the constraints on Britain, France and the United States....

  • Watch a terrifying documentary about the lethal "world's tallest" waterslide

    Last year, a Kansas state grand jury issued a 20-count indictment against the management of Schlitterbahn water park for the horrific death of a child while riding Verrückt, a much-hyped, Guinness World Record-breaking water slide in 2016. Caleb Schwab, the ten-year-old son of Kansas state representative, Scott Schwab, was decapitated after a raft on the 168-foot-tall slide went airborne over its main ramp, striking the guard railing which anchored the ride’s safety net.
