Had a very good meeting with @kbsalsaud of Saudi Arabia. We discussed Trade, Military, Oil Prices, Security, and Stability in the Middle East!

How Elon Musk's 'Space Cloud' internet could work.
The early SpaceX Starlink satellites lack inter-satellite links planned for later versions. Can they still provide low latency wide-area communications? In this video Mark Handley looks at what might be possible using ground relays to hop from satellite to satellite around the world.
Using ground relays with Starlink. (Amazing graphics presentation)

So we need to take a long hard look at this. These are CLEARLY not the same man. The ears are a dead giveaway. Also, the dead guy seems to have recently dyed his eyebrows brown, while the Epstein mug shot has normal eyebrows. Also the nose is different, as are the wrinkles on his face. WTF is really going on here, people?

It's still normal. They do this often as part of their training exercises. As a kid on a SAC base I watched dozens of them back in the 70s & early 80s. (Amazing I'm not deaf) Right, what we don't know is sometimes these exercises are preppin for actual conflict like they did for Desert Storm and post 9/11 Iraq/Afghan.
Air superiority over Iran would NOT be anything like Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria. As I'm sure we're all well aware that Iran is a modern country and that Regime has had 40 years of military build-up and lots of weapons friends all over the world.

Q always says U.S. Intelligence "has it all". No need for war that hurts the Iranian people. Simply use that intelligence to target Iran's leaders. Blow them into the arms of the 700 waiting virgins.
Who we are
Supra Et Ultra: Above and Beyond
The NRO has been intertwined with innovation since its inception. Formed in response to the Soviet launch of Sputnik, the NRO was secretly created on September 6, 1961 with the purpose of overseeing “all satellite and overflight reconnaissance projects whether overt or covert.” The existence of the organization is no longer classified today, but we’re still pressing to perform the functions necessary to keep American citizens safe. As the NRO mission states, we are relentlessly working to foster “Innovative Overhead Intelligence Systems for National Security.”
What we do
The National Reconnaissance Office's (NRO) systems are critical to National Security, U.S. policy makers, and war fighters. These systems provide the foundation for global situational awareness, and address the nation's toughest intelligence challenges. Frequently, NRO systems are the only collectors able to access critical areas of interest, and data from overhead sensors provides unique information and perspectives not available from other sources........

Just breaking: DOJ has recommended Michael Flynn be given 6 months behind bars.
The Department of Justice, which previously recommended no prison time for Michael Flynn, asked a judge Tuesday to sentence the ex-national security adviser to six months behind bars.
Something is very wrong/sinister about that recommendation.
DARPA calls it "counter-hypersonics."
The rest of us would call it a way -- or a prayer -- to stop nuclear warheads coming down on our heads at 20 times the speed of sound.
DARPA, the Pentagon's pet research agency, wants an interceptor that can stop weapons that are hypersonic (travel faster than Mach 5).
