…Iron man Mattis halts deliveries. Nice to know that at least one person has their eye on the bottom line. Didn't the president promise to get rid of the thing completely?


The Defense Department has reportedly stopped accepting F-35 jets from Lockheed Martin because of a dispute over who would be responsible for covering the costs to fix a production error found in more than 200 of them.

“Production on the F-35 program continues and we are confident we will meet our delivery target of 91 aircraft for 2018. While all work in our factories remains active, the F-35 Joint Program Office has temporarily suspended accepting aircraft until we reach an agreement on a contractual issue and we expect this to be resolved soon,” a Lockheed spokeswoman told Reuters.

Fixing the jets won’t be simple because it could require technicians to travel to stations around the world, anonymous sources told Reuters.

It isn’t clear when the suspension began, but the Pentagon allegedly received two jets despite the suspension.

This isn’t the first time technical errors have disrupted the Pentagon’s most expensive weapons program.

>that's assuming this money is actually going to the F-35 project and not being laundered and funneled back out to black-budget fuckery.
you whats kind of ridiculous is that the program itself is so enormously large and complex that no one individual will ever know the answer to that question. you'd need to give a large team of people PhDs in aeronautical accounting years just to get an estimate.

ACLU of Louisiana: ““Ka’Mauri Harrison’s suspension from school was an excessive and unjustified punishment that reflects the deeply-rooted racism that criminalizes Black students and fuels the school-to-prison pipeline.”

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Landry met with the family of a fourth-grader who was suspended for moving a BB gun during a virtual learning session.

The name of the 4th grader is Ka’Mauri Harrison and the young boy attends school in Jefferson Parish.

They're using the "shelter in place" ordinance to shut down "nonessential" businesses, and they're saying gun stores are nonessential. This effectively means that there is no legal way to acquire guns in the state now, and you can only buy ammunition at Walmart, but they'll probably find a way to stop that too.

Believe me, if we could organize a statewide tax revolt that actually worked, I'd support it. But the vast majority of the population are dumbshit normies and soccer moms, and they just can't handle life without an omnipresent police state brutalizing groups of people they don't like. And that's definitely the case here- whenever I see some comment online about how we need to vote California's unjust laws away, I'm reminded of the cultural divide between the states. They have a supermajority, my vote essentially does not matter. All the dumbshit soccer moms will continue voting away my gun rights and increasing my taxes, and the supreme court isn't doing a damn thing about it.

So they're open just restricting sales? What convinces you that the management didn't decide to this on his own?

It must be made clear, there are absolutely people who for whatever rhymes or reasons don't give a shit about accuracy of reporting, and want to use this happening as a pretext to grab power for themselves.

If you read the articles I posted, it's clear that the state and local government are saying gun stores are "nonessential" businesses, which are being shut down. Various other kinds of businesses are also shutting down, and most of them post signs saying they'll be shut down for a while. None of the signs are typed in such a way as to say they were ordered to shut down, but that's basically what happened. They were told that if they're "nonessential," they are to close. How long these businesses will remain closed, or if some will be allowed to open in the coming weeks, is not certain. Knowing this place, I wouldn't be surprised if they specifically keep guns stores shut down longer than other businesses. And I'm quite concerned that Gavin Nuisance and Javier Basura will decide to drag this on for a year or more, specifically to keep guns from being sold.

This place isn't so popular as it once was. In addition to many of us just growing up and without as strong a feeder community, I blame the format favoring a desktop web browser when the world shifted to a phone/tablet view and social media platforms overtaking message boards. But I remember a time when big international goings-on meant there was a thread here.

The flooding along the Yangtze this summer is one of those big deals. And a collapse of the largest gravity dam on the planet could potentially touch off the greatest international economic crisis in history, as well as military conflict grown out of saving face and "controlling the situation."

Be nice if there were enough people to share interesting Twitter threads, thinktank blogs or news reports about it. The rain isn't stopping in its VAST upriver watershed, the flooding and abnormally high stress on the dam has been going on for months, and today the water reached a record height against the dam and volume/minute passing through the sluices.

Have a nice time getting banned, my dude,” Army recruiter and gamer Joshua “Strotnium” David told me right before he booted me from the US Army’s Twitch channel. I had just reminded viewers of the United States’ history of atrocities around the globe, and helpfully provided a link to the Wikipedia page for US war crimes.

Was I undiplomatic? Sure. But if the military is going to use one of the world’s most popular platforms to recruit kids, then it shouldn’t be able to do so without some pushback. Right now, with the support of Twitch, gamers with the US military are spending hours with children as young as 13, trying to convince them to enlist.

The Army, Navy, and Air Force all stream on Twitch using dedicated e-sports teams. These teams are comprised of skilled gamers who compete in tournaments for cash prizes. While members of military e-sports teams offer the regular gaming skill set, they’re also on-screen talent and recruiters. Instead of approaching a recruiter behind a table in a school cafeteria, kids can hang out with one who is playing their favorite video games and replying to their chat messages for hours on end.

Hasan Piker, a popular Twitch streamer with a dedicated following of over 430,000 users, recoiled at the thought of recruiters’ building relationships with young, impressionable viewers.

“Twitch is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced in my career, and it’s because you’re live for hours on end, talking to these people in the chat. You develop a community and know your individual chatters. There is an ecosystem in every Twitch channel,” Piker said. “Recruiting in this predatory way is a violation of [the users’] safety.”

While an 18-year-old might watch a piece of propaganda like American Sniper once in movie theaters and go on with their lives, here military members themselves are streaming hawkish agitprop day after day. In some cases, such as Call of Duty, these are games that the military or ex-military figures have consulted on and helped shape. In these Twitch channels, recruiters are using these games to solicit young viewers to share personal information. Branches that use e-sports and Twitch streams to reach and recruit younger viewers rely on sleight-of-hand tactics, false promises, and deceptive messaging to trick them into filling out recruiting forms.

The Twitter account for the US Army e-sports team links to a sparsely populated page with register to win! at the top, no details on what one could even win, and a sign-up form that, according to a tiny disclosure at the bottom of the page, welcomes an eventual harangue by an Army recruiter. It allows people as young as 12 to submit the form, but adds a notice on the post-submission page that recruiters are not permitted to contact a child under the age of 16.

Twitch’s advertising pitch boasts that it can reach 80 percent of teen males in the United States. The minimum age requirement for Twitch is 13.

“All parents are concerned about screen time and what it’s doing to their children,” Justin Hendrix, the executive director of the NYC Media Lab, told me. “As a parent, I reckon a lot of us are unaware that our children are encountering marketing messages, influencers, and sales people in a variety of contexts online when we think they’re just playing games.”

Twitch viewers in the Army’s channel are repeatedly presented with an automated chat prompt that says they could win a Xbox Elite Series 2 controller—an enhanced controller with customizable options and extra paddles for advanced play that costs upward of $200—and a link where they can enter the “giveaway.” It, too, directs them to a recruiting form with no additional mention of a contest, odds, total number of winners, or when a drawing will occur.

The Army declined to comment.

There are over 325,000 current active-duty Navy servicemen and women. The inaugural Navy e-sports team commissioned earlier this year consists of 10 people. To qualify for the e-sports team, you must be at least an E-4, petty officer third class, a rank that takes on average two to three years to reach. One cannot join the Navy and immediately be on the e-sports team, but the Navy’s Twitch channel features a bio that reads, “Other people will tell you not to stay up all night staring at a screen. We’ll pay you to do it. Get a look at what life is like inside the uniform on the America’s [sic] Navy.”

Lara Bollinger, a public affairs officer with the Navy Recruiting Command, said in an e-mail that the bio is “a nod to the fact that when standing watch in various capacities on a ship (on the bridge, in the combat information center, etc.) a Sailor will be looking at various screens, (radar, sonar, navigation, etc…).”

Twitch does not consider military e-sports streams mature programming, so it does not require people to enter their age before viewing. One need only click a button acknowledging that the stream is intended for older viewers. With screen time spiking because of the pandemic, this presents a troubling dynamic.

“You can say what you want about people who serve in the military and what that says about them. I’m not saying they shouldn’t be able to play video games or e-sports, but I do think it’s more insidious to have the military using it as a recruiting tool for young, impressionable people,” Rod Breslau, an e-sports industry consultant and insider, said.
