More Problems – Now Boeing Is Forced To Suspend Test For New 777X Aircraft After “Door Explosion”

Forget problem-plagued Boeing 737 MAX. It doesn’t look like the “fastest-selling“ airplane in Boeing history would be able to make it to the sky by the end of the year. Even if the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the agency that oversees American airspace, gives the green light for the aircraft to take off, most would still be sceptical […]

An Admission Of Guilt – Former Boeing Official Invokes Fifth Amendment Protection In 737 MAX Scandal

While watching TV, you would sometimes hear about a lawyer telling his client to “plead the Fifth”. In a nutshell, it’s the constitutional right of a person to refuse to answer questions or otherwise give testimony against himself.

Brexit Endgame – Here’s Why The Suspension Of Parliament Could Be A Masterpiece Of Boris Johnson

When Boris Johnson became British prime minister on July 24, his biggest problem was obviously the lack of time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union. In comparison, Theresa May had served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from July 2016 to July 2019. She had 3 years, yet failed to […]

And there’s a new man (actually a boy) who has given the party a black eye – a certification of approval – that […]

To Be Booted!! – Zakir Should Preach & Unite The Arab Muslims To Prove He’s Not A Snake Oil Salesman

As expected, Zakir Naik, the controversial Indian Islamic preacher accused of spreading hate speech, laundering money, and funding terrorism by the Indian government was quick to use “misquoted” and “out of context” excuses to defend himself when his pants caught  fire. Amusingly, the previous corrupt Barisan Nasional government often used them too whenever they screw […]
