    Well, another one is in the books. The 147th iteration of the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits went off without a hitch (and without the predicted appearance by Antifa or other protesters).

    As usual, it was an amazing event. I always try to go when it’s in this part of the country, and have never been disappointed. 15 acres of the latest guns and gear, dozens of great speeches, and a chance to hang out with 80,000 like-minded patriots. What’s not to like?

    I survived the crowds, flight delays and humidity (and the $6.00 hot dogs and $4.00 bottles of water) so you didn’t have to. Here are links to the major speeches:

    Wayne LaPierre: 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum
    Chris W. Cox: 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum
    
    Vice President Pence: 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum
    
    President Trump: 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum
    Dana Loesch: 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum
    
    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
    
    U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) 
    
    Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) 
    
    Gov. Pete Ricketts (R-NE)
    
    U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) 
    
    Mark “Oz” Geist, Former Marine, Author of “13 Hours”
    
    Mark Robinson, Second Amendment Activist, Greensboro, NC.
    
    Diamond & Silk, Social Media Commentators
    
    Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union

      this was mainly the Joint Commisions’s fault, period. Several states have gone ahead and sued them for this train wreck.

      This doesn’t surprise me in the least. 90% of the “problems” government says they HAVE to solve are ones of their own creation.

      The Boss Baby tv series summed up the current politician stance in the us right now. “You can’t fire me, I like power too much!”

      @ coldwarrior:

      I have an issue with this – several, actually, but I’ll focus on just one. Not all of the current opioid problem is due to over-prescribing. A lot of the addiction is multi-generational and in rural areas. We’re seeing it and hearing it from our farmers constantly and it is a plague.

      Also, if I’m not mistaken, people who do have pain mgmt issues have become addicted because their docs have cut them off and they’ve turned to street heroin, etc.

      I’m old enough to have seen this cycle before. I’ve seen doctors jailed for ‘over prescribing’ when what they’ve done is treat a clientele with intractable pain issues. The surgeon who operated on me 3 times for trigeminal neuralgia and headed up the pain clinic at GW went on a tear about it frequently.

      I’m also not convinced that pain ISN’T a vital sign. What else would you call it?


    8. eaglesoars
      8 | May 6, 2018 9:34 pm

      And one more thing. Having lived for almost a decade with one of the most painful conditions known to medicine, addiction is not the worst thing that could have happened to me if opioids could have taken care of the pain. It would have been an easy trade-off.

      That’s why their proposed “solutions” are so devastating. It will probably wind up taking away from or limiting people who desperately need it.

      @ Deplorable Martian Overlord:

      yep.

      That’s why I don’t understand why pain shouldn’t be considered a vital sign. Believe me, if it’s bad enough you will do anything to stop it. I almost walked off the subway platform at Dupont Circle one rush hour evening. Only the thought of what it would do to my mother stopped me.

      I felt that way this morning. A migraine so bad that every tiny movement made me want to scream out. And I had to walk all the way upstairs and get my pills. That was the longest walk I’ve done in ages. Or at least it felt that way. I’m so glad that I don’t have anything that would cause massive pain like that daily. (Though I’ve had one every day for a month now. Just not as bad as this morning.)

      My headaches are harder to pin down. Some are traditional migraines, some are sinus, some are photosensitivity, and the worst ones are in the back of my neck and should be tension headaches, but I don’t really have a lot of tension. I respond well to imitrex usually, sometimes have to do two. But, it makes my stomach upset and my heartbeat feels weird.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Personally, I am convinced that their is a HUGE segment of American society who use opiod pain medication because of work related injuries. They do jobs that require massive amounts of physical strain and the injuries are a consequence of it.

      My brother is an example that I believe represents way more people than 90% of those talking about the opiod crisis are willing to even think about let alone admit.

      He is a maintenance technician level 6 or 7. He injured his back years ago, had to have surgery, had a couple of disc’s fused and takes pain medication for it.

      My brother earns $100,000.00 a year. He works his ass off for it. His work is very physically demanding. He’s 51 and still has at least another 10 to 15 years to go before he can think about retiring.

      This war on opiod’s is not going to be doing him any favors. He takes 1 to 2 Norco’s a day to manage his pain. He rations them out as carefully as he can because he already has to worry about the over prescription paranoia.

      I honestly do not believe that my brother is any sort of outlier on this subject. He’s down right scary when it comes to being responsible. I know plenty of other people like my brother who take pain management medication, and every single one of them do so because of work related injuries.

      I have a very funny story about migraines. I was in a car accident back in 1985 and went through the windshield of the car, and landed… Face first on the freeway. Yes, it literally killed me.

      Fortunately the car we had hit belonged to the Chief of Trauma at Sharps Hospital here in San Diego, so dying turned out to not be a permanent problem. It did however (or perhaps it was the landing on the freeway at 70 miles per hour and breaking my face) resulted in my having killer migraines for years.

      Then a funny thing happened. I got into another car accident. Someone rear-ended me, the back of my head struck my Corvettes titanium roll bar and I had to have 9 staples put in my head. That was also the rather dramatic end to my migraines, well, sort of.

      I still get the migraines, I see the electric neon snakes in my peripheral vision, become nauseous and loose my balance, but the screaming pounding agony in my head is no longer there.

      Maybe you just need a good old whack in the head???

      I’ve been told that my whole life. Even before I knew I had migraines.

      And we don’t know what the solution is. What can help with the pain people deal with that isn’t addictive or doesn’t cause other long term problems?

      If I could answer that, I would be the richest person in history. Personally, I survive on aspirin, one of these days that is not going to be enough. I was born with clubbed feet, I literally have been in pain since before I was even born. I have only known a few days in my life when I wasn’t in pain.

      Consequently, pain is a little different for me than it is for most people. No, I do not like pain. But the few times in my life when I actually was not in any pain at all was actually uncomfortable for me. Its kind of difficult to explain really. Most pain medication, taken at the proscribed dosage, does nothing noticeable for me.

      Even at significantly higher dosages I do not get “high” off it. The fist time I knowingly took an opiate pain medication, I remember laying in bed, feeling extremely uncomfortable, because I could feel all of the places that I normally hurt, very distinctly not hurting. It was a very disconcerting sensation.

      Back in my Rock Star days I used to be a YUGE fan of certain illegal narcotics. But they were not opiate narcotics. Cocaine and meth to be exact. I understand why people get addicted to them, because of the energy and euphoria they produce. I just have never understood the illegal use of opiates.

      Back when I was a baby, having many many surgeries to fix my clubbed feet I am pretty sure that the hospitals gave me opiate based narcotics for the surgery. I suspect it because I discover many years ago that I have an unusually high tolerance for opiates.

      I discovered this in an odd sort of way. I sprained one of my ankles really really badly one day (we’re talking black and blue strip going from my ankle to my knee bad), and a Hell’s Angel friend of mine gave me a dozen dilaudid, I took three, it didn’t do anything, so I took 2 more, still didn’t do anything, so I took 2 more, and it finally took away the pain.

      I went and saw my friend a couple hours later, he asked how I felt, I told him it took 7 of his dilaudid before they worked, but once they did, they worked great. He looked at me in complete disbelief and asked how I was even still alive. Apparently 7 of the high dosage dilaudid is an awful lot of dilaudid to take at one time. But not that much for someone who spent the first 5 years of their life being given morphine on a regular basis.

      Also, apparently, since the 1960’s doctors have discovered… That a lot of surgery isn’t required to correct most cases of clubbed feet.

      Like I said, I do not like pain, sharp acute pain drives me nuts, low level constant pain, I mostly just ignore, I know its kind of creepy when I say this, but its almost like an old friend, ok, maybe not a friend, lets call it an old companion. But I can definitely understand why most people would do almost anything to not be in constant pain.

      Brian Stelter at CNN is complaining on Twitter that Donald Trump had only tweeted out once to say “Thank you Cleveland.”

      Poor man. Perhaps we should put him on suicide watch. BTW, if you didn’t see it last night and can get shows on demand, Life, Liberty and Levin was pretty good – he interviewed Joe DeGenova and Dan Bongino on the Mueller investigation and DeGenova had some marvelous insights into how this whole investigation is illegal.

      I’m surprised the Judge gave them two weeks to give him the unredacted scope memo. I’d have given them a week. I have a feeling when it all comes out, Rosenstein and Muellers ass will be grass and Judge Ellis is a lawnmower. Of course, in a sane world, they both would have already been hauled in front of Congress to explain themselves.

      Of course, in a SANE world, there wouldn’t even BE a special counsel at this time.

      OUCH…

      MR. DOWNING: So our position is that to the
      extent that Mr. Rosenstein exceeded his authority to
      appoint a special counsel, the special counsel does not
      have the authority of a U.S. Attorney.
      THE COURT: Thank you.
      MR. DOWNING: Thank you.
      THE COURT: All right. I’ll take the matter
      under advisement.
      Did you wish to respond to this last point?
      MR. DREEBEN: No thank you, Your Honor,
      unless you have any questions.
      THE COURT: Good choice on your part.
      I must tell you that I’m exercising
      uncharacteristic restraint on my part not to require
      you to tell me about those things, but I think I have
      an adequate record now. You’re going to let me know in
      two weeks the rest of this letter.
      I’m going to be interested if CIPA really is
      invoked. That creates a whole new regime for the
      treatment of discovery and so forth, as you all well
      know.
      Thank you for your arguments. They were
      entertaining. I think I found the right adjective.
      Thank you.

      If this reads the way I think it does, Mueller and company better pull a smoking gun the size of Hitler infamous Paris gun out of their asses or this whole investigation is kaput.

      Classified Information Procedures Act. Whenever material information in any criminal case has been justifiably classified as secret or confidential and therefore cannot be reveled in open court, CIPA defines exactly how, where and under what conditions said information may be disclosed.

      What it comes down to is this. While there may at times be legitimate reasons for not disclosing certain information in open court, there is never any justification of secrecy to the extent that the Judge and Defense Attorney’s may not see evidence or charges being brought against a suspect.


    37. 38 | May 7, 2018 12:24 pm

      @ doriangrey:

      Justice Ellis basically just told Mueller and company, “You are claiming that the scope of your investigation and the evidence you have are to classified to be shown to the Defense Attorney or myself, and Sir, frankly you are full of shit, put up or shut up”.

      There was a pretty damning moment in there that probably slipped by most people, where Ellis rebuked Dreeben on the CIPA by referencing his dealings with CIPA in the John Walker Lindh case, Lindh you may recall was an American citizen captured in Afghanistan on the battlefield in 2001 fighting for the Taliban.

      Connecticut To Give Its Electoral College Votes To National Popular Vote Victor

      Connecticut’s legislature has passed a bill that would give the state’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote nationally.

      The state Senate voted 21-14 on Saturday to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, which includes 10 states and the District of Columbia. The state House passed the measure last week, 77 to 73.

      He’s an excellent choice. I’m surprised that it wasn’t announced on Saturday. Now that I think about it, I don’t recall seeing him in the room (the Members’ Meeting is held in a regular ballroom, not the arena where the Friday speeches were). There may have been some behind-the-scenes wrangling involved.

      I suspect that he’s going to be a lot more active than the last few presidents have been. Most people (including most NRA members) probably couldn’t name the current president. He’s leaving his Fox News gig, and he lives in Northern VA, so I think that means you’ll see him around headquarters in Fairfax quite a bit.

      One thing that happened on Saturday that I haven’t seen discussed is the board elections. Guess who got voted out?

      Squash (correctly known as ‘diluting juice’), in British English, is a non-alcoholic concentrated syrup used in beverage making. It is usually fruit-flavoured, made from fruit juice, water, and sugar or a sugar substitute. Modern squashes may also contain food colouring and additional flavouring. Some traditional squashes contain herbal extracts, most notably elderflower and ginger.

      No disrespect intended eagles, but this is a over cooked nothing burger. We get literally 10,000 earthquakes every year. At least a hundred in the 4 to 4.5 range. A 4.5 earthquake usually wont even spill your gin and tonic if your not holding it.

      All of this hyperventilating you hear in the news… Yea, I have been trying to get everyone to understand this for years. The people doing the hyperventilating are neither California natives, nor life long residents.

      Let me put it this way, a 4.5 doesn’t do any physical damage. You can barely get a California Native out of bed with a 6.0. Life long residents like myself sometimes get a little excited, when, you know, their is a string of a dozen 5.5’s and a couple 6.5’s.

      But really, its the Special Snowflake Social Justice Warrior’s living in La-la land that freakout over little baby earthquakes that mean nothing.

      The magnitude 4.5 event occurred 11 km (7 miles) N (4 degrees) of Cabazon, CA.
      The hypocentral depth is 13 km ( 8 miles).

      Big fuss over the 4.5 in Cabazon, because it rattled the imbeciles in Berzerkley. Not a whisper about the 4.5 in Ferndale, virtually identical earthquakes, the difference being, one scared the Special Snowflake Social Justice Warriors in Berzerkley, while the other made a few marijuana plants wiggle their leaves, and caused a few goats to look sideways at each other.

      Sadly, these damn 4.5 to 5.5 earthquakes aren’t even usual for scaring the fucking Marxist wannabe Special Snowflake Social Justice Warriors that keep flocking here into leaving.

      Apparently Mueller has rejected Trump’s request that his questions be submitted via written interrogatory.

      Which proves to my satisfaction what we’ve said to begin with on this. The “interview” was designed to be nothing more than a perjury trap. Mueller’s whole “but you’re not a target of the investigation” BS was nothing more than an attempt to get Trump to drop his guard and submit to an interview. If Trump was not the “target” and all Mueller wanted was further information, he would have no problem submitting the questions for written answer, since that would be better evidence anyway.

I was in the grocery store when it hit and the shelves were falling over. We still haven’t fixed the cracks (cosmetic) to our house. And we weren’t even at the epicenter. But the earth out west is different, so I can see that the physical manifestation would be very different.

      ROTFLMAO… Sorry, not being disrespectful here, but, no. The difference is that we build for earthquakes. We have done the engineering research and you cannot build anything here that will not be unaffected by a 5.5 earthquake. Its not the geology that is different, its the way you build.

      After the 1905 San Francisco earthquake we started taking earthquakes into consideration when we built. Now granted, we didn’t get really serious about it until the 1994 Northridge earthquake which was a 6.7. But like I said, it isn’t the geology that is significantly different, its the way we build.

      Indeed. Our office buildings in the Bay Area are built on “rollers and rails” which allow the building to freely move during an earthquake. And believe me, in a building like the Embarcadero Center, which is wiiiiiiide and not thick, when you get an earthquake, you can literally see them “sway.”

      Yup, those of us here in California may be crazy, but we’re not stupid. Well, ok, mostly not stupid, or partly not stupid anyway. I’m mean, if you exclude the Democrats, who are obviously both crazy and stupid. But even the majority of them recognize that you have to build for earthquakes if you live in an earthquake prone geography.

      This just in from literally the edge of the main crater in Hi. from my friendly general officer.

      🙂

      Aloha all, some good (stable?) news today.
      May 8th update:
      Challenges.
      – Lava vents largely quiet overnight but Lava is unpredictable so there is no way to tell how long, how much, or where it will go next.

      – Total count of homes/structures destroyed remains about the same; 35 structures of which 26 are homes. Area residents are being allowed back into their homes between 07:00 and 18:00
      (7 am- 6 pm) each day to “grab” stuff and check property based on gas danger readings each hour.

      – 12 “puka” (holes) have opened up; all pretty much along the same NE to SW line through the subdivision. There are new cracks in HWY 130 (the main north-south hwy through the area); some as wide as four inches but so far no lava or Sulfur dioxide gas, just steam from these cracks.

      – Hawaii Island First Resonders still doing great work. Mahalo nui to our Fire, Police, and Emergency Management folks who are dealing with over 1,700 stressed out family members 24/7.

      – Earthquakes have lightened up some but aftershocks continue to impact various areas such as the Volcano Village and Volcano National Park area. The XXXXXX house enjoyed a 4.1 at 20:35 (8:35 pm) last night and a 3.6 at 00:35 (12:35 midnight) early this morning. The epicenter for the midnight one was less than half a mile away. XXXXX had to get up to go to the bathroom anyway. No significant damage from earthquakes so far. Still keeping our fingers crossed.

      Good News.
      – Local, State, and other organizations continue support efforts.

      – However, as often happens, there appear to be “the usual suspects” scamming for donations on the web/by phone. Should you wish to donate in future to the relief effort, make sure you are dealing with a reputable agency.

      – One suggestion to consider….We plan to make any monetary donations as we did during the Houston Hurricane event. We linked up with family members in Texas and donated directly to their Church so all our donations went directly to a member of their Congregation who had a specific and identified need.

      – Still no lives lost! Great news.

      BOTTOM LINE: What happens next? Who knows. As we used to say in the Army; “Standing by to stand by.” The eruption is by no means “over”. The response of all our Hawaii Island communities as this event matures has been heartwarming. We take care of each other.

      Our continued aloha for all the prayers and well wishes from our extended Ohana.
      a hui hou,

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Mother Nature is messing with the Special Snowflakes. Earth does not have stable weather or geography, it never has and most likely never will. Earth is not a particularly “Safe” place. Human’s, as it just so happens, live relatively short life’s, as a consequence, we experience things on a time scale which allows the illusion of relative stability to exist for us.

      Events like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes actually take an incredibly long time to take place, they tend to be events that are thousands or even tens of thousands of years long. We just notice the part of the event which takes place in a relatively short period of time, which also happens to be the most violent part of the event.

      I’m glad your friends in Hawaii are rolling with the punches, honestly, there is little else they can do, but I am glad that they have not been injured. Living in paradise comes with certain risks. Well, technically, living comes with certain risks. Knowing what those risks are at least presents the opportunity to plan for them.

      don’t have a clear picture but..it seems Israel detected ‘unusual’ Iranian activity in Syria so they blew up a bunch of targets somewhere around Damascus. Initial reports that high level Revolutionary Guard were killed. Like at the General level.

      NRA Dallas Convention Sets All-Time Attendance Record

      The NRA enjoyed a record of 87,154 attendees at its May 4-6 Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas.

      These attendees came after months of student-led gun control marches and walk-outs, celebrity finger pointing–which sought to blame the NRA for the Parkland school shooting–and a focused establishment media template supporting gun control while allowing the NRA to be denigrated.

      Breitbart News reported that donations to the NRA’s Political PAC literally tripled, compared with January, after student gun control activists and celebrities began blaming the NRA for the Parkland shooting.

      Then came March, and the NRA broke a 15-year record by receiving nearly $2.5 million in donations. The Miami Herald reported that the nearly $2.5 million was “the most money raised by the NRA’s political arm in one month since June 2003.”

      Now the NRA can also point to the 87,154 who attended the Dallas convention and set a record there.

      In addition to the record crowd, President Trump was present at the Dallas convention. He spoke to thousands of convention attendees on Friday, saying, ““Your second amendment rights … will never, ever be under siege as long as I am president. … We believe that our liberty is a gift from our Creator, that no government can ever take it away.”

      Uh, no f**kwits. “America” made no such deal. Two crappy negotiators made that deal and wouldn’t submit it to the Senate because they knew it would go down in flames. If “America” had made that deal, it would be called a “treaty” and would have been approved by a branch of the government that represented the people.

      If your lawyer is on TV every day, FIRE him. Especially if your lawyer is (1) confirming wiretaps that didn’t happen and (2) slanders people because he’s an idiot.

      Is he getting his intel from a leak at Mueller’s investigation, who are using him to get false information out to the public and he’s too stupid to do his own research.

      “It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control.” said Iver Mossberg, Chief Executive Officer of O.F. Mossberg & Sons. “Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’ recent anti-Second Amendment actions.”
