The Argentine military submarine ARA San Juan has been missing for approximately three days. Today there were reports of seven attempted transmissions from frequencies that appear to emanate from the sub. However, they were only a few seconds in duration and no direct communication was possible. The Argentine’s are asking for help. The U.S. Navy has dispatched a P8-A Poseidon search aircraft and NASA has changed mission for a close proximity P-3 Orion aircraft that was already in the vicinity.(CNN) The crew of a missing Argentine military submarine tried contacting naval bases seven times, Argentina’s Defense Ministry said. The calls were

Everyone officially hates the Americans until something goes wrong and they need some real competence.

Too bad they pizzed off the British Navy during that little Falkland kerfuffle.

Prayers for the crew nonetheless.

Location is one thing, retrieval is another. I do hope the sub was built to certain rescue standards.

According to the comments (some knowledgeable Bubbleheads there) the boat has been located in 70 meters of water off the coast of Patagonia. That´s not to deep but the sea state is is pretty rough on the surface, which might hinder rescue operations.

USN is sending a DSRV. No telling what they´ll find. Hopefully some sailors still alive.

The US Navy has retired both of it´s DSRV´s and there is a new unit that can be transported via a USAF C-5B and can do rescues down to 2000 feet. All it needs is the proper style support boat.

If the sub did´t have a hull breach, and if their Oxygen holds out, maybe things will end on a bright note.

Even though I´m an enlisted senior Air Force NCO, I´ve been on 18 different US subs and have written several books on the Los Angeles Class SSNs as well as the Virginia and Seawolf boats.

Trump’s Jerusalem Gambit
Recalls Harry Truman
American Greatness, by Brandon J. Weichert    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 12/11/2017 7:44:06     Post Reply
When the United States recognized the Jewish state of Israel, it sent shockwaves throughout the international system. Donald Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is as historic as Harry Truman’s move in 1948. In fact, the announcement last week is probably the most consequential foreign policy decision of the young Trump Administration. Of course, there is significant opposition to the decision—not least because it was Trump who made it. The United States effectively served as midwife to the modern state of Israel during the Truman Administration. President Truman’s decision to recognize Israel as an independent state was met with

Reveling in my freedom in our Age of Communications Revolution, I found myself rummaging through the bowels of YouTube (best not to say for what). In the process, I discovered an exotic foreign past time: “mudlarking.” Pursued in a nation purporting to be a United Kingdom, properly licensed royal subjects amble along the banks of the Thames at low tide and scavenge through the aquatic detritus and muck to find historical and literal gold. Usually, though, the mudlarkers cull lesser treasures from the foreshore’s mire—animal bones, buttons, and pipes. (Snip)Watching a gaggle of mudlarkers combing through the muck, I experienced

Dick Clark had a game show called The $10,000 Pyramid. It was so successful that eventually it became The $100,000 Pyramid. Contestants guessed at the category by hearing examples of things in the category. For example, "bats, baseballs, gloves" were clues for Things You Would Use In A Ballgame. Easy as pi. Using tweets on Twitter, can you guess the Hashtag? "Joe Biden at a Girl Scout event." No? How about: "Lawrence O´Donnell´s psychiatrist." Nope, that´s not it. Try: "Bottled water from Chernobyl." Hmm.

Well, journalists had another stellar week of buying petards from Acme, setting the explosives off, and hoisting themselves high above the ground.The first ten days of December have seen: ABC News´s Brian Ross lie about General Flynn´s plea bargain. Reuters and Bloomberg News reported on an imaginary subpoena of Trump´s records at a German bank. CNN lied about Donald Trump Junior being tipped off about a WikiLeaks. David Weigel of the Washington Post lied about the size of the crowd at a Trump rally. Liars all of them.

Santa Barbara County was under siege from the Thomas fire Sunday as fire crews fought to keep the destructive blaze from the region’s picturesque beach communities. Authorities said the out-of-control blaze had scorched 230,000 acres by Sunday evening, making it the fifth largest wildfire in modern California history. The fire grew by more than 50,000 acres during the day, triggering new evacuation orders for about 5,000 county residents, including those east of Mission Canyon and north of Highway 192. An additional 30,000 residents west of Mission Canyon to Highway 154 and south of Highway 192 to the county line were told

Sex is private. Everybody lies about sex. And the classic but far from classy quip from James Carville, "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you´ll find." Democrats were so clever that they thought they got away with it when they protected Bill Clinton in 1998. But they still pay today. Margaret Carlson of the Daily Beast bravely tried to fashion the sow´s ear of Al Franken into a silk purse.(Snip) Nice try, but it won´t work because as long as Bill Clinton is alive, so is his scandal. He survived but at a price others pay.

Though the hate-filled press would like you to think otherwise, this Christmas we have witnessed a return to a classic sense of style at the White House. The much-discussed Trump Christmas decor has contributed to this proper and appropriate appreciation of style which—as opposed to fashion—is timeless. Adam Flusser, the master of sartorial propriety, taught us certain standards complement our humanity. Style is higher than fashion because style comports itself with something eternal; something that is in accord timeless and elegant principles.(Snip)When the Obamas occupied the White House, their decorations reflected a cavalier attitude not only about the meaning of

Toward the final months of his presidency Barack Obama infamously said the following regarding jobs that had left America – including millions during his eights years as President: “…some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back.” And when commenting on then-candidate Donald Trump’s promise to bring jobs back, Mr. Obama said this: “…Well, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?” No magic want was needed by POTUS Trump. Just some common sense, a basic understanding of economics (remember, Barack Obama never created a private sector job in his life and is

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes.

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair.

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be.

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?
