U.S. Air Force “stands ready” to retaliate against one million people ready to invade Area 51
Who would win? One million Facebook users, or the US Air Force?
I’m not a gambling man, but my money’s on the Air Force, who now say they are preparing to stop any invasion to the Nevada base.
The Facebook event has caught the attention of media internationally, as the number of attendees has skyrocketed to 1 million, with another million “Interested.” If everyone were to show up, that would mean there are more people ready to attack Area 51 than there are people in Latvia.
Air Force spokesperson Laura McAndrews told the Washington Post that the US Military is — unsurprisingly — well equipped to stop any and all attacks to the Area 51 facility.
“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect its assets,” said McAndrews. She went on to say that the site is “an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.”
The raid is set to begin at 3 in the morning on September 20th in the Nevada desert.
Comedian podcaster Joe Rogan joked that he believed he was “at least partially responsible” for the creation of the group. Rogan recently had on Bob Lazar, a man who claimed to have worked in a facility near Area 51 where they attempted to reverse engineer a device that produced gravitational fields.
Though the event is admittedly hilarious, it should be noted that the US Air Force is not an easy adversary to have, and there are many who would advise against it.
US President Donald Trump’s official Facebook page shared a post commending him for the American job numbers for November, while calling out Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the abysmal job numbers in Canada, the worst since the 2008 financial crisis.
“Let’s see. President Trump is fighting for America and our economy [sic] just ADDED 266,000 jobs,” starts the post from a Trump supporter shared by the POTUS on Facebook.
“Justin Trudeau was laughing it up in London and the Canadian economy just LOST 71,200 jobs. That’s no joke. Trump wins. Again,” the post ends, referring to Trudeau being caught on a hot mic earlier in the week making fun of Trump to other world leaders when at the NATO anniversary gathering.
Trump responded by calling Trudeau “two-faced” and that the PM didn’t like him calling out Canada as “delinquent” in its defence spending. The US President was also caught on a hot mic when leaving the London saying it was “funny when I said that guy was two-faced.”
On Friday news broke that Canada had lost over 72,000 jobs in the month of November, many Canadians losing their jobs just before the holiday season. The job loss was the biggest in Canada since the 2008 financial crisis.
Trump has been boasting throughout the day about the great jobs report in America and appears to have not forgotten Trudeau talking about him behind his back in London.
Trudeau hasn’t likewise addressed the Canadian jobs report on social media.
Many political experts have said that Trudeau being caught laughing behind Trump’s back could have untold consequences for Canada relationship with the US, especially if Trump is reelected in 2020.
Since the Trump Administration was inaugurated, the Trudeau Liberal Government has shown a repeated tone of arrogance and superiority towards our American allies.
Whether it was Trudeau and Freeland giving virtue-signalling speeches that were thinly-veiled swipes at the US, lecturing the US on social issues, or Trudeau’s latest debacle at the NATO summit, it’s been clear that the Trudeau Liberals have no respect for America.
Yet, at the very same time, the Trudeau Liberals show far more respect towards Communist China, no matter how badly that nation treats Canada.
Consider the fact that—whatever disagreements Trudeau and Trump may have—the US is still available to talk and discuss issues with our country, and is a democratic nation governed by the rule of law.
By contrast, Trudeau and Freeland often can’t even get China to answer their phone calls.
Canada and America are part of the same inheritance of Western Civilization, and our history and future are inextricably linked.
Meanwhile, Canada’s values and the values of China’s Communist government are clearly incompatible, as the suppression of freedom, forced organ harvesting, denial of religious rights, execution of political dissidents, and horrifying surveillance state all makes clear.
And while Canada and the US have disputes like any two nations do, the fact remains that China has treated us far worse than the US ever has. China is illegally detaining two Canadian Citizens, has spoken in arrogant and threatening tones towards our nation, and is clearly an ideological and strategic adversary.
Additionally, the vast majority of our foreign trade is with the US, and given our amazingly weak defence spending, the US is basically the only armed force that is defending North America (and by extension defending the Canadian People) at the present time.
All of this should be the basic groundwork for how any Canadian Leader thinks about the United States. And it should go without saying that a Canadian Leader should always be more respectful towards the US than towards Communist China.
But with Trudeau, we see the opposite.
He’s never laughed about Xi Jinping.
He’s never mocked Xi Jinping.
He hasn’t even lectured China on their concentration camps with as much force as he lectured the US about abortion.
In short, Trudeau has shown far more respect to Communist China than he has towards the United States, a clear sign that his value-system and worldview is severely messed up.
Trudeau appears to be in thrall to the view of the radical far-left which blames the Western world for everything, admires brutal communist states, and seeks to weaken their own nation and our Western allies in order to strengthen foreign nations out of some insane sense of “historical guilt.”
Now, with Trudeau’s screwed up mindset governing the nation, our country is increasingly distanced from our closest ally, putting all of Canada at risk in an increasingly dangerous world.
Trudeau doesn't remember Canadian military spending numbers, Trump calls Canada 'slightly delinquent'
US President Donald Trump addressed media in a meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, openly name-calling Canadian military spending.
In the meeting, Trump criticized countries that do not meet the recommended threshold of military spending did not end at Canada, which is specified at 2 percent of a country’s GDP. Currently, Canada does not meet the standard, falling flat at just 1.4 percent.
When Trump was asked where Canada stood surrounding the country’s military spending specifically, Trump called Canada “slightly delinquent.”
“Slightly delinquent, I’d say Canada. But they’ll be okay. I have confidence. Just slightly delinquent. Some are major delinquent, some are way below one percent. And that’s unacceptable. Then, if something happens we’re supposed to protect them, and it’s not really fair. And it never has been fair,” said Trump.
Trump was then asked, about Canada not meeting Trump’s two percent figure, and whether Canada should have a plan to meet the two percent standard.
“We’ll put them on a payment plan, I’m sure the prime minister would love that,” joked Trump, before asking Trudeau what figure Canada was at.
“The number we talk about is a 70 percent increase,” said Trudeau, avoiding the fiture. “Including significant investments in fighter jets, significant investments in naval fleets, increasing significantly from previous governments who cut it,” stated Trudeau.
To which Trump replied, “What are you now in terms of your number?”
Trudeau then looked off-camera to an advisor, confirming the number. “1.3 percent? 1.4 percent.”
“They’re getting there. They know it’s important. Their economy’s doing well… It’s to their benefit,” said Trump, noting that Canada was a valued ally.
Tens of thousands of tweets have flooded in, as it appears Facebook and Instagram—both owned by the Facebook Group—are experiencing vast technical difficulties, loading slowly for many users across the world.
Instagram published a response via Twitter that the tech giant is “aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram,” and promising to “get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
WhatsApp is also reportedly experiencing issues.
