Pentagon’s New High-Tech Deal with Australia, Britain, Aims to Counter China

From underwater drones to electronic warfare, the U.S. is expanding its high-tech military cooperation with Australia and the United Kingdom as part of a broader effort to counter China’s rapidly growing influence in the Indo-Pacific.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met with defense chiefs from Australia and the United Kingdom at the U.S. military’s defense technology hub in Silicon Valley on Friday to forge a new agreement to increase technology cooperation and information sharing. The goal, according to a joint statement, is to be able to better address global security challenges, ensure each can defend against rapidly evolving threats and to “contribute to stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.”

Austin met with Australian Defense Minister Richard Marles and Grant Shapps, the British secretary of state for defense, at the Defense Innovation Unit headquarters.

Speaking at a news conference after the meeting, Austin said the effort will, for example, rapidly accelerate the sophistication of the drone systems, and prove that “we are stronger together.”

The new technology agreement is the next step in a widening military cooperation with Australia that was first announced in 2021. The three nations have laid out plans for the so-called AUKUS partnership to help equip Australia with a fleet of eight nuclear-powered submarines. AUKUS is an acronym for Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Under the deal, Australia will buy three Virginia-class submarines from the United States and build five of a new AUKUS-class submarine in cooperation with Britain. The subs, powered by U.S. nuclear technology, would not carry nuclear weapons and would be built in Adelaide, Australia with the first one finished around 2040.

Marles said there has been an enormous amount of progress in the submarine program. He added that as an island nation, Australia has a need for improved maritime drones and precision strike capabilities.

And Shapps said that with China “undermining the freedom of navigation in the Indo-Pacific, we’ve never had a greater need for more innovation.” He said that open navigation of the seas, including in the Pacific and the South China Sea is critical.

According to officials, Australian Navy officers have already started to go through nuclear power training at U.S. military schools.

Also, earlier this year the U.S. announced it would expand its military industrial base by helping Australia manufacture guided missiles and rockets for both countries within two years. Under that agreement, they would cooperate on Australia’s production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems by 2025.

The enhanced cooperation between the nations has been driven by growing concerns about China’s burgeoning defense spending and rapidly expanding military presence in the region. Last year Beijing signed a security pact with Solomon Islands and raised the prospect of a Chinese naval base being established there.

The U.S. has increased U.S. troop presence, military exercises and other activities in the region. U.S. relations with China have been strained in recent years, over trade, U.S. support for self-governing Taiwan, Beijing’s military buildup on a series of manmade islands, and a numbers of aggressive aircraft and ship encounters.

High-tech demonstrations were set up across a large parking area at DIU and inside the headquarters, allowing Austin to take a few minutes before the start of the meeting to see a number of projects being developed, including a virtual training device that will help Ukrainian pilots learn to fly F-16 fighter jets and swarming drones being developed for warfighters. The projects aren’t tied to the Australian agreement, but reflect the ongoing effort by the three nations to improve technology — an area where China often has the lead.

As Austin walked through the exhibits, he was able to watch a swarm of five drones lift off from the pavement and hover over the onlookers — all controlled by a single worker with a small handheld module. The short range reconnaissance drones — called the Skydio X2D — are already in use in combat, but the swarming technology and ability to control them all from a single device is still in development, said Skydio CEO Adam Bry.

Inside the DIU offices, Air Force Maj. Alex Horn demonstrated a new portable, pilot training module that will allow instructors in the United States to remotely coach trainees overseas using a virtual reality headset. Four of the so-called “Immersive Training Devices” will be delivered to Morris Air National Guard Base in Arizona next month and will be used to train Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16s.

Horn said the devices, which are cheaper than other systems, will help accelerate the training for Ukrainian pilots who are used to flying Soviet aircraft and need schooling on F-16 basics before moving to cockpit training.

Doctor says ‘white lung syndrome’ an overlap of common viruses

(NewsNation) — Reports of a spike in respiratory infections among children in China are triggering frightening flashbacks for some parents in the U.S. who worry the illness could launch another global pandemic like COVID-19.

But China insists it’s just an overlap of common viruses that normally hit kids this time every year, and the World Health Organization (WHO) agrees with that.

China told the WHO the spike was caused by already known viruses like the flu, COVID-19, and RSV and is not the result of a new pathogen.

Mandy Cohen, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), testified on Capitol Hill that the agency has no reason to believe an unknown virus is circulating.

Dr. Kristin Englund, an infectious disease specialist at the Cleveland Clinic, joined NewsNation’s “Morning in America” to discuss what is being dubbed “white lung syndrome,” saying there’s little evidence the outbreak is the result of a new pathogen.

“What this seems to be is a very common bacteria that we see year after year called mycoplasma pneumonia,” Englund said. “So this is something that we see surges of every three to four years. And it just seems to be the right time for us to have a surge here.”

Ohio was the first state in the U.S. to report an outbreak of the illness, with an ‘extremely high’ number of children being hospitalized.

The strain of pneumonia spawned 142 pediatric cases in Ohio’s Warren County since August of this year, according to a release from state health officials.

Now, reports indicate doctors in parts of Massachusetts are reporting a spike in child pneumonia cases.

“In western Massachusetts, physicians are seeing ‘a whole lot’ of walking pneumonia, a milder form of the lung condition, which is being caused by a mixture of bacterial and viral infections,” the Daily Mail reports.

Dr. Tom Frieden, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told NewsNation he believes the world is experiencing what is sometimes called an “immunity gap.”

“Although we don’t have all of the information I wish we would have on the details of who’s getting sick and when,” Frieden said. “What we believe is happening is sometimes called an ‘immunity gap,’ that there were years where people weren’t getting infected because of lockdowns and therefore are much more susceptible to influenza, RSV, COVID and other infections.”

According to reports, the term “white lung” comes from pneumonia showing up on X-rays as a whitening of the lung.

“It’s clearly a walking pneumonia,” Dr. Englund said. “I think we’re just simply seeing the effect of the lockdown and coming out of the lockdown in many different places across the world.”

“I think if this was something that was a new pathogen, we wouldn’t see it involving just a specific group like children. We’d be seeing it involving all ages,” Englund continued. “And I think it’s the children that have never seen mycoplasma before that are most at risk.”

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an ‘atypical’ bacterium that causes lung infection, according to the CDC.

Health officials recommend taking necessary precautions to protect your health, issuing a reminder to “wash your hands, cover your cough, stay home when ill, and stay up to date on vaccines.”

Englund said the lessons Americans learned over the COVID-19 pandemic have “kept us from having cases of influenza and RSV, and mycoplasma pneumonia.”

She shared health tips to teach your children to lower their chances of contracting the illness.

“Just teaching your children the importance of covering their cough, using a Kleenex or coughing into their elbows,” she said. “Making sure that if they’re sick, keep them home so that they’re not getting other children infected.”

“And unfortunately,” she said, “as we start coming into the holidays, if you’re sick, you might have to start skipping those family and friends events.”

Republicans just can’t let go. We have yet to see one who honestly wants to do anything to help the people they allegedly represent, yet they are dying to be and remain in office. They think they’re smarter than everyone else, and perhaps, in a way, they are. Look at the Georgia ruling against the congressional districts drawn by a majority Republican legislature for example. Judge Jones told Republicans to draw several majority Black districts, but he didn’t say “how.” What’s the first thing Republicans did? Redraw two that already included Democratic representation, which will do little, if anything, to dilute Republican power in Georgia.

In their minds, it makes sense to eliminate two white-majority districts that are currently represented by Democrats. While they think they’re satisfying Judge Jones’ order, basically nothing changes. Heaven forbid they look at their own districts, which have been gerrymandered over the years to favor Republicans. Of course, this change doesn’t completely satisfy Judge Jones’ order, but you can certainly see where it’s heading. Republicans are hell bound to stay in office, even when people don’t want them, and a judge has issued a ruling telling them to change. They just keep doing what they want to do. They were supposed to be beginning their work on redistricting Wednesday, so let’s see what they come up with because this plan doesn’t satisfy the order issued in October.

Judge Jones ordered Black majorities in one additional congressional district, two in state senate districts, and five additional state house districts. Drawing these two to wipe out to white Democratic majority districts will not satisfy the order. He ordered eight majority Black districts, not two. Two of them must be drawn in southern Atlanta, which is heavily Black. Those districts are in Douglas County, Henry County, and Clayton County, all of which have seen a large increase in the Black population since 2010. By mingling these districts with others, white Republicans have been able to have majorities all over Georgia, regardless of whether those districts are right, fair, or even make sense. Republican maps are ridiculous. There is no way that people in Cobb, Gwinnett, southern metro Atlanta, Houston County, and Peach County have the same concerns. Not only does this dilute the Black vote, but those areas have little, if anything, in common. They are neglecting one thing: Judge Jones must accept the maps they draw.

According to NBC News, Republicans are also looking at counties in Fulton and Cobb that were not ordered redrawn, and you can guess why: They are Democratic districts. Judge Jones is not going to accept this foolishness. He was quite clear when he ordered the maps redrawn. He didn’t ask them to draw over every Democratic district Republicans can snoop out. He wanted them redrawn in the obviously gerrymandered districts. It’s going to be quite interesting to see how this plays out. Judge Jones told them if they couldn’t do it, he would do it himself. He’ll likely do a much better job of it.

Texas attorney says Von Miller investigation will continue even if alleged victim recants

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Bills linebacker and former Super Bowl MVP Von Miller is still in hot water Friday after he turned himself in to face a felony assault warrant Thursday afternoon.

The 34-year-old allegedly assaulted his pregnant girlfriend in their luxury apartment Wednesday morning in Dallas, Texas. He turned himself in to police in Glenn Heights on Thursday and was processed at the DeSoto Regional Jail, where he posted $5,000 bond.

Police told News 4 that Miller and the victim “got into a verbal argument and the suspect assaulted the victim,” who suffered minor injuries but was not hospitalized. Under Texas law, assault against a pregnant person is a third-degree felony.

According to the ABC affiliate in Dallas, the victim is walking back some of her statements. She allegedly told the station “the situation was blown out of context” and “no one assaulted anyone.” News 4 was not able to independently confirm those statements.

A legal expert in Texas, however, said a statement made to the media does not exonerate Miller.

“If they have enough to suggest that something occurred, whether or not she recants, that’s not going to dictate letting him off the hook,” Wesley Sackrule, a criminal defense attorney in Dallas who is not affiliated with this case, told News 4 via Zoom on Friday.

Legal experts told News 4 on Thursday that assault is typically a class A misdemeanor in Texas but can be enhanced depending on the circumstances. According to Texas law, assaulting a pregnant person elevates the charge to a third-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years in state prison if convicted.

“The idea that there’s pain and bruising that would suggest that there’s probable cause to continue on with this,” Sackrule said. “Regardless of whether she wants to recant her statement, they’re going to see whether or not the evidence will support an indictment in this situation.”

The Dallas Police Department’s Domestic Violence Unit interviewed the victim after the incident, police said, and “observed minor abrasions on [her] left hand along with bruising to her neck, injuries consistent with applied pressure to the neck.”

Miller was investigated for an alleged domestic incident in 2021, but was not charged by a district attorney in Colorado.

“[The Dallas County DA’s office] is going to know about these prior allegations. The fact that these charges were dismissed prior to, that’ll factor in to their decision whether or not to push further,” Sackrule said. “They don’t want to cut corners and they want to make sure they get this right.”

The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office did not have anything in its prosecution system about this case as of Friday morning.

Miller’s agent did not respond to a requests for comment.

On Thursday, the Buffalo Bills said the team was made aware of an incident involving Miller and is “in the process of gathering more information.” The NFL said in a statement it is working with the Bills amid the investigation. The Bills are currently on their bye week. They visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Dec. 10.

The warrant affidavit

Miller and his girlfriend have been in a romantic relationship for 7 years and have children together, according to the warrant for his arrest. The document also states that the victim, whose name is being withheld by News 4, is six weeks pregnant and had discussed her due date and doctor’s visits with Miller.

According to the warrant, the incident began over an argument about travel plans. When Miller’s girlfriend slammed a door out of frustration, Miller allegedly became “visibly angry” and yelled at her to “get out” while attempting to push and shove her out of the apartment.

The warrant states that both Miller and the victim attempted to record video on their phone during the altercation. Miller allegedly left the apartment once his girlfriend said she was going to call the police.

The warrant affidavit accuses Miller of the following as the incident escalated:

  • Pushing his girlfriend while stepping on her feet, causing her to fall back into a chair
  • Applying pressure around her neck with one hand for 3-5 seconds
  • Throwing her laptop on the ground and stomping on it
  • Pulling her by her hair and ultimately pulling out a chunk of hair
  • Grabbing her and pushing her into a couch
  • Applying pressure around her neck with both hands, causing pain but no difficulty breathing

Legal experts in Texas say this will be a lengthy legal process and the district attorney’s office will not begin their investigation until it receives the police documents, which could take about a month. Then, prosecutors will investigate the case and could push it to grand jury, which would decide if Miller should be indicted and go to trial on these charges.

Several attorneys in Dallas say this case will likely be expedited because of Miller’s status and plea deal or other agreement could be made during the investigation.

I’ve never been particularly fond of public debates – regardless of how good our candidates look on TV, a feeling that’s only gotten worse since Secretary Hillary Clinton immolated Donald Trump during the 2016 debates and it didn’t make a difference in the outcome of the election or even much of Clinton’s press coverage.

The problem is that the average voter treats these like sporting events more than anything else – they tune in to cheer for their favorite player but rarely if ever decide who they’ll vote for based on a strong debate performance. For this reason, I was largely opposed to the Fox News debate between Governors Gavin Newsom and Ron DeSantis.

This one worked a bit differently, however. DeSantis was the one who needed it – and his supporters (what’s left of them) were hoping he could dominate the night and do a send up of Newsom, governor of California, the state all right-wing media teaches their listeners to hate.

Instead, he just drove DeSantis through the wringer, while giving anyone who would watch a list of easy to frame arguments to counteract Republican talking points – particularly when it came to border security where he forced the audience to realize that the GOP has no actual policy when it comes to securing the border, while reminding DeSantis that his own antics have brought him down 41 points in his home state.

Hannity who moderated, wasn’t quite prepared for this – or the final insult Newsom brought down on his opponent where he said the only thing he and DeSantis had in common was that neither would be the 2024 nominee. The fact is that Democrats have a number of solid arguments to use between now and next year and Gavin Newsom gave us a number of them, delivered effectively.
