Will the physics add up for near-silent, ion-propelled cargo drones?

All aircraft propulsion systems provide thrust by moving air or another propellant, and for the vast majority of drones that means some kind of fan or propeller spinning angled blades to push air through and create thrust in the opposite direction. Ionic propulsion, on the other hand, is entirely electromagnetic.

The process uses a high-voltage electric field to ionize the nitrogen and oxygen molecules in the air, liberating electrons to create, primarily, a lot of positively-charged nitrogen molecules. These are drawn toward a negatively-charged electrode, usually in the form of a flat screen grid, and as they accelerate, they bang into other air molecules and bump them in the same direction to create an ionic wind.

Undefined’s ion-propelled drone won’t be the first machine to use this technology; for starters, NASA’s been using something similar in space since the 1960s, bringing its own xenon propellant along as there’s obviously no air in space to ionize.

She also wants to prosecute election officials who refuse to certify until irregularities are properly dealt with, and she wants to prosecute Pennsylvania Republican state officials who met with Trump at the White House. In other words, Dana Nessel has proved herself unfit for any public office by her effort to weaponize law for her political agenda.

George Washington Law School professor Jonathan Turley discusses Dana Nessel’s attempt to coerce Republicans by threatening them with indictments. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/michigan-ag-calls-criminal-charges-against-gop-certifiers-who-wont-fall-line?utm_campaign=&utm_content=Zerohedge%3A+The+Durden+Dispatch&utm_medium=email&utm_source=zh_newsletter

CNN PANICS as Vote Certification in PA and MI in DOUBT! In this video, we’re going to look at how CNN’s coverage of this ongoing campaign reveals increasing anxiety over the election results, how both the courts and the legislatures in MI and PA are signaling that they may indeed refuse to certify their results, and why a number of experts are predicting that Trump may indeed successfully bring this election into the House of Representatives, all but guaranteeing his reelection!

Provocative Visit of US Admiral to Taiwan

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

In mid-November, 97-year-old Henry Kissinger warned that “(u)nless there is some basis for (Sino/US) cooperative action, the world will slide into a catastrophe comparable to World War I.”

War between two nations able to hit back hard against any adversary would be madness.

While unlikely between the US and China, it’s possible. If occurs,  it would be launched by Washington, not Beijing.

At the same time, repeated US provocative actions against China  pushes the envelope toward breaching bilateral relations.

The latest Trump regime provocation came with an unannounced visit by Pentagon Admiral Michael Studeman to Taiwan.

He’s currently US Indo-Pacific Command director of intelligence.

In response to his November 22 arrival in Taiwan, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the foll

Trump Regime Hellbent to Wreck Relations with China and Russia

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Once again, the Trump regime escalated war by other means on China and Russia.

Pompeo’s State Department falsely accused China of “stealing (South China Sea) resources,” bullying regional nations, “intimidating Taiwan, provoking tension” along its border with India, and “aggression in the Indo-Pacific region.”

Aggression against non-threatening nations is longstanding US policy — polar opposite how China operates.

According to Reuters on Sunday, the Trump regime intends restricting exports of tech and other products to 89 Chinese firms with alleged ties to the country’s military.

Banning tech exports entirely may follow in the coming days or weeks while Trump remains in office.

The latest move comes days after Trump’s executive order prohibited US investments in Ch

America & Canada Drifting Toward A Loss of Identity

Read more on this subject: Politics: General Activism
Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
With recent events across America, whether it’s a 50-50 split on the presidential election, prolific anarchy in our cities or a racial divide as wide as the Grand Canyon, we’re facing tremendous riffs from our youth, our 45 million immigrants who were not born here, and our economy.  

Once a country loses its sense of national identity, whether by thoughtless mass immigration or loss of connection to our American ethos/culture—we face a national unraveling in the months and years ahead.  In other words, if we percolate anarchy or allow cultural upheaval on ever larger scales as seen in the last six months, it portends fragmentation of our blacks vs whites, our young vs old, and our liberals vs conservatives.

The same thing occurs in Canada.  Canadians continually lose their identity by importing dozens of cultural identities via millions of immigrants.  If you remember what happened to India, they suffered such conflict with tw

“Burn That Mask! Burn That Mask!” – Huntington Beach Protesters March In Defiance…

According to CBS Los Angeles, non-essential work and all social gatherings must stop at 2200 hours to 0500 hours. The demonstration billed as “Curfew Breakers” began at 2201 hours, precisely one minute after the new curfew went into effect on the beachside community. The curfew was also imposed on 41 of California’s 58 counties to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

Despite the protest’s modest size, RT News said it began “trending on Twitter, as both supporters and critics weighed in on the small act of civil disobedience.” 

Lee Greenwood’s patriotic song, “God Bless the USA,” could be heard playing in one video as patriotic flags were waved. 

Demonstrators also burned coronavirus masks as a crowd was heard chanting: “Burn that mask! Burn that mask!” Folks at the rally must have read the latest study from Denmark, outlining how masks do very little to stop COVID-19.
