Something very, VERY, big is taking place in the world. So big, in fact, that the F-117 Stealth Fighters, pulled out of service in the 1990's after one was shot down in Serbia, and allowed to be officially RETIRED by Congress in 2016, have been pulled out of being mothballed, and are FLYING. The photo below was taken in southern California yesterday:
In the picture, two F-117A stealth fighters can be seen airborne along with a KC-135 refueling tanker.
This is a staggering development on many levels.
First, there was no public discussion in advance of the F-117's being taken out of mothballs. They just appeared yesterday.
Second, conversations with some of my former colleagues from the Intelligence Community, during my years working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, provided almost giddy information about what has been done to these planes. Even more astonishing, the first picture of the brand new B-21 Raider has also been made available as of yesterday, also shown below:

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.
