      Good morning. The Founder of Green Peace was on ;FNC this morning. He has turned on them and made a great observation. If Climate Science is settled, why are they still researching it? The answer is obvious, they get govt
      money to do the research.

      Here’s the skinny on the college cheating thing 2 Hollywood holier-than-thou actresses have been charged for

      Full House star Lori Loughlin and Oscar nominee Felicity Huffman are two of the 50 parents charged in a plot to get their children into elite schools

      Loughlin and her husband ‘agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team’

      The two girls did not participate in crew, and Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli has also been charged in the scandal

      Huffman paid a $15,000 ‘charitable contribution ‘to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter’

      She knowingly had an individual who was known to assist students or change their answers proctor her eldest daughter’s SAT exam according to documents

      Huffman and her husband William H Macy had then planned to do this again later this month with their younger daughter

      She is charged with Conspiracy to Commit Mail Fraud as are Loughlin and her husband

      Between Amazon and the Post, Bezos is a monster – he’s worse than Gates ever was. Or Branson. Or Musk.

      If Bezos was a Trump SUPPORTER, the Democrats would be working overtime to destroy him. But as with Soros, who is as evil as they come, he’ll get a pass.

      Have you seen the video of AOC Fyre Festival Cortez questioning him? Asking why he was responsible for putting children in cages and if a pipeline leaked why wasn’t his bank responsible since they provided the financing.

      When he said “NO, we didn’t DO that!” the moron said “I’ll move on….”

      What is it with her and that Omar bigot and their making slanderous comments and then saying “I’ll move on…?” These two need to be yanked from their Committees.

      EVERY DIME ONLINE. IN REAL TIME: That’s the motto of OpenTheBooks.com, the amazing web site that is putting trillions of dollars of spending at all levels of government online and accessible to everybody.

      Adam Andrezejewski is the founder and top poo-bah there and he’s the subject today of The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” series of video interviews.

      I’ve known Adam for more than a decade and as a journalist have turned to him countless times for data that made big stories on waste, fraud and abuse in government. The guy deserves a medal and I hope somebody in the Trump White House is listening.

    29. 31 | March 12, 2019 6:14 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      Of course the libs are all saying that this is going to entrap Trump and Dersh as well as Prince Andrew as well as Clinton; that Trump was on the jet as well. Which is kind of odd, since Trump has his own Boeing 737 that he can fly.

      Also they’re saying Trump was involved, since Epstein’s so-called procurer “recruited” the girls at Mar-a-Lago.

      Dershowitz already sued the person(s) who accused him (and won), I believe. I don’t know if there are any pics of Trump w/Epstein. Probably.

      But I think what everyone is waiting for – I am – is to see if this touches Haiti. If it does, that’s the Clintons, that’s Hillary and that’s ‘pizzagate’.

      Sad news. It’s not on their front page yet, but weaselippers just lost one of their own, Dapandico, last nite. He’d gone in to have a tumor removed, but I thought this was just a surgical intervention that looked pretty clean. He was a good guy. Stop by when it gets posted, they were good about Iron Fist.


    32. 34 | March 12, 2019 7:09 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      Trump knows Epstein from New Yawk and they were friends. I’m pretty sure that not everyone that knew Epstein knew he had a Lolita Island and I have real trouble even picturing Trump keeping him as a friend if he knew.

      Bill Clinton is the lech here. And they are doing everything they can to deflect from it. Look for news to mention that “rape lawsuit” filed against President Trump at various times in 2016 – a lawsuit that had to be filed FIVE times because they didn’t do it correctly and which was NEVER served on Donald Trump. But I wouldn’t put it past CNN and MSNBC to resurrect it, with Jeffrey Tubercular providing flawed legal analysis.

      yeah, I remember the woman who kept filing it too. Katherine somebody. She’s another Julie Swetnick and somebody should go dig her up and put that media stake in her heart. How much do you want to bet, she’ll try to re-file?

      As for the media burying it – it’s the Miami Herald along with NYT and WaPo and about 20 other media outlets who filed suit, so I don’t think they’ll be burying much soon. They may be looking for Trump slime, but once it’s out, those docs are accessible to anybody


    34. 36 | March 12, 2019 7:39 pm

      oh goody! They found a newbie!

      The Cascadia Subduction Zone.

      Roughly 100 miles off the West Coast, running from Mendocino, California, to Canada’s Vancouver Island, lurks the Cascadia Subduction Zone, where the Juan de Fuca Plate is sliding beneath the North American Plate, creating the conditions for a megathrust quake 30 times stronger than the worst-case scenario along the notorious San Andreas, and 1,000 times stronger than the earthquake that killed 100,000 Haitians in 2010. Shockwaves will unleash more destructive force against the United States and Canada than anything short of nuclear war, a giant asteroid strike, or a civilization-threatening super-volcano.

      We didn’t even know a megaquake was coming until recently.
      []
      layers of tsunami debris—that date back millennia and, most recently, again, to 1700, revealing a cycle that repeats itself every 300 to 600 years. The Cascadia Subduction Zone is not quiet, after all: it triggers catastrophic megathrust quakes, on schedule.
      []
      When it happens, the earth will slip by roughly 60 feet along a rupture zone more than 600 miles long, unzipping the sea floor at roughly two miles per second and convulsing the West Coast for as long as five minutes. Bridges will fall. Wet soil will liquefy. Brick and masonry buildings will shatter. Skyscrapers built before modern earthquake codes may topple. City centers in Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver will be buried beneath glass shards and rubble. Everything underground—water mains, natural gas pipes—will be crushed. Land that has bulged upward from tectonic pressure for the past 300 or so years will collapse to baseline, permanently altering the topography and plunging low-lying coastal areas into the ocean. The inland Cascade Mountains will knock the knees out from under the earthquake, but numerous landslides will occur, especially on roads built with a “cut and fill” method, where flat slabs get cut out of rock walls and smoothed over with soft fill. Just a few minutes after the quake finally stops, the second hammer blow will strike. Tsunami waves up to 50 feet high will rip the face of the coastal region clean off the map, pulverizing everything and killing everyone in their path.

      sounds like fun. Actually, no. Do you know how much of our food comes from California?

      This is long but worth it. Gabe Schoenfeld is now, inexplicably, residing in the sewer known as The Bulwark. He wrote a vicious adhominem screed against Victor Davis Hanson, complete with Nazi moral equivalencies. Hanson has TORCHED him.

      Schoenfeld instead gives us a sad exercise in self-abasement. And his review offers an illustration of the poverty of Never Trump personal venom and incoherence.

      In Itidarod news, Pete Kaiser crossed the finish line at about 7:30 am EDT. It’s his first win, his 10th finish. Joar Ulfsom, who won last year, was 12 minutes behind him. The both arrived with 9 dogs. My musher, Blair Braverman, is about 350 miles out, resting at a cabin, probably waiting for daylight, as she has some water to cross. She’s now running 10 dogs.

      There’s a caller on Rush who says the reason Manafort is pleading guilty to charges that haven’t even been brought is due to a case called ‘Gamble’ (sp?). It’s a firearms case and is currently under review for double jeopardy issues but hasn’t been decided.

      If THAT case gets tossed on double jeopardy grounds, then the state of NY can’t go after Manafort for charges as he’s already pled to them.

      Don’t know if that makes any sense………..


    59. 62 | March 13, 2019 2:54 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      It makes perfect sense. It’s called the “separate sovereigns” rule – that you can commit an offense against a state and against the federal government with a single action. The Supreme Court has a history of upholding.

      However in 2016, in Puerto Rico v. Sanchez Valle, the defendants appealed their convictions in both federal and state courts for selling the same firearm, and the Supreme Court did rule that Double Jeopardy barred the federal prosecution.

      I can see them vacating Gamble’s federal conviction on the same grounds – the circumstances are quite similar. Interesting that they accepted cert here since they had so recently ruled likewise in Valle. They may be wanting to refine the ruling.

      The indictment, unveiled by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, charges Manafort with 16 counts related to mortgage fraud, conspiracy and falsifying business records.

      “No one is beyond the law in New York,” Vance said in a statement. Manafort’s alleged actions “strike at the heart of New York’s sovereign interests, including the integrity of our residential mortgage market,” Vance added.

      oh, their stock price is cratering, so how can you blame them. I used to work at the Air Line Pilots Assn, the union for commercial airline pilots. They felt the FAA was in the pocket of the manufacturers and was lax about enforcing safety rules, etc. This, I suspect, is no different. Pilots have been complaining about that plane for some time.

      Spot on Eagles. The FAA has been in the pocket of the manufacturers for a very long time. Before FAA officials look at safety issues they look first to the knock on effects to corporate bottom lines. That is CORRUPT and is yet ANOTHER example of the corruption of the organs of government and smells a lot like just another stinking bog within the wider SWAMP. There has been to close alignment between former members and executives of the FAA and manufacturers who hire these former bureaucrats as ‘consultants’. The ALPA shouldn’t shouldn’t get all ‘high-horse’ about this either as former senior executives of the polite’ association have also been recruited by the aviation industry as so called ‘consultants’.

      The only way to stop these rorts is to rigidly enforce stand down periods on all bureaucrats once they leave government before they can be recruited by industry as lobbyists or ‘consultants. I’m afraid that it’s up to ALPA to clean its own house !

      There’s a caller on Rush who says the reason Manafort is pleading guilty to charges that haven’t even been brought is due to a case called ‘Gamble’ (sp?). It’s a firearms case and is currently under review for double jeopardy issues but hasn’t been decided.

      If THAT case gets tossed on double jeopardy grounds, then the state of NY can’t go after Manafort for charges as he’s already pled to them.

      Don’t know if that makes any sense………..

      It certainly does.

      Tactically Manafort NEEDS to ensure that his vulnerability to charges by States has been pinched off permanently so that he then only has to serve his Federal time…. and be eligible for a possible Trump Presidential pardon.

      Without the guarantee that no States will be hunting him with incitements Manafort will still be living on borrowed time…. a Presidential pardon or not !

      Tell me about it!

      NZALPA was one of many global ALPA branches that complained that Boeing was dragging the chain on problems with the Boeing 737-300s when there was a problem with the rudder hydraulics that on occasion gave a run away rudder inputs… Full hard left or right for unknown reasons.

      I know the feeling as I was flying B-737-300s at the time. The FAA had to drag Boeing by the scruff of its neck to ground all B-737-200s and B-737-300 until they discovered what was causing these phantom inputs. NZALPA and Air NZ both demanded a ‘fix’ from Boeing and one was eventually found. It was a design fault. In the meantime we trained to instantly recognise a run away rudder and turn off the hydraulics cut outs BEFORE the rudder ran to full deflection making the airplane uncontrollable as it yawed and then rolled onto it’s back. Once you cut hydraulic power to the rudder you still had to deflect the rudders MANUALLY. You really needed strong leg muscles and had to reduce airspeed to give yourself a fighting chance, plus a big handful of aileron to maintain control.

      It was a ‘twitchy’ time waiting for a ‘fix’ by Boeing to be found.

      Of course she does, because she is a rational actor!

      There are PLENTY of ‘safe’ aircraft operated by safe and competent aircrew. What eagles can NOT do is reduce the chance of dying in an aircraft crash to zero. Nor should she even try. What is life lived without some manageable risk?

      It all comes down to that phrase ‘manageable risk’. Aircraft are constructs of mankind’s imagination and are therefore all flawed to one extent or another. The trick is to drive that ‘chance’ as close to zero as is humanly possible.

      The airline industry is an exemplar in that field …compared to almost every other human endeavour. The old shibboleth that when going flying the most dangerous part of the journey is actually making it to the airport in one piece. After walking into the terminal the risk profile drops almost to zero…. but never quite zero.

      The chances of an ‘impossible’ two engine ‘go around’ (aborted landing) on a Boeing 747-200 having lost two engines to catastrophic failure is a case in point.

      Theoretically it’s impossible because once you drop the gear and with landing flap selected there are NOT enough hydraulic power left in the system to raise BOTH the flaps AND gear in a go around situation. The amount of drag on the airplane is so great that you are going to auger in sooner or later. That said the trick is to ensure that you never get into a situation where you HAVE TO go around in a two engine on one side fully ‘dirtied up’ approach. So you select flap for landing and LEAVE the gear down selection until the last moment. That’s called minimising risk and is basic airmanship. Airmanship is defined as NOT getting into a corner where you have to demonstrate one’s superior flying skills.

      Even then in Air NZ we used to try all manner of approaches in the simulator where we could give ourselves at least an even chance of walking away from such a situation. We tried lifting BOTH gear and cleaning up (lifting0 flaps but just as Mr. Boeing said we ‘crashed’ by rolling onto our backs upside down. Then we tried lifting the flaps and leaving the gear down. That resulted in crashing upside down again. Then we tried leaving the flaps in landing position and lifting the gear…. upside down again. It seemed that Mr. Boeing had tried everything. BUT then we tried lifting the gear leaving the flaps alone and letting the airplane loose altitude (we were at 300 feet) and allowing the wing to go down a little bit due to asymmetric thrust until the gear was almost up and then selecting Flap 5 to decrease drag a bit. We usually ended up at 100 feet in a wing down attitude but with the drag reduction we ‘just’ managed to stop digging in and as speed increased we regained control and stopped descending and levelled out still with out wings banked 45 degrees BUT with increasing airspeed. Once we got to that situation it was just a matter of nudging the nose up slowly and eventually selection flap 1 leaving the leading edge flaps giving us lift from the ‘slots’ but bugger all drag… climbing away and eventually levelling the wings…. and making another 2 engine approach.

      When the alternative is dying a little bit of logical thinking and good handling and airmanship saves the day and your passengers get to go home.

      My Blair got lost during the day, everyone was frantic. Turns out her tracker died. They found her, she’s still on the trail and will get a new tracker at the next checkpoint. She’s still running with 10 dogs.

      FYI: The last place is called The Red Lantern finisher (“we kept the light on for ya!”). The longest finish was – wait for it – 35 days. Good Lord.

      Yup.

      A runaway STAB (stabiliser) that pitches the airplane nose up and down by moving the WHOLE horizontal Stabiliser can ruin one’s’ whole day. Fortunately there are two STAB disconnect switches on the lower consol just aft of the thrust levers that can cut power to the STAB. They get their inputs from Angle of Attack probes that look like two little sharp blades that hang out either side of the cockpit in the airflow.

      You can move the STAB up and down by operating two co-located switches on the left hand side of the yoke or near the top of the stick. Pilots use these all the time to ‘trim the airplane’ so that there are no flights loads felt through the controls. The airplane is ‘in trim’ and flying smoothly and there are no loads felt through the controls.

      Nominal pitch up and down controls are made by pulling the flight yoke or stick back and forth which actuates linkages , either mechanical or fly by wire to small aerofoils mounted at the rear of the movable elevators hanging off the rear of the normally stationary Horizontal STABiliser. Pull the controls back and the small aerofoils move DOWN thereby causing the rear of the Elevator aerofoil to move UP at the rear, dumping lift and causing the Elevator become more curved relative to the airflow and pitching the nose UP, and if you have engine power on, the airplane will CLIMB. The opposite will happen when you push the controls forward. The airplane pitches nose down.

      The STABiliser however electronics hydraulically will just move the whole Horizontal STABiliser UP ( by pushing the two switches towards the pilot) to push the tail DOWN and the Nose UP….. or if the Horizontal STABiliser is moved UP (by pushing the two switches away from the pilots) the tail moves UP and nose will move DOWN.

      It’s highly intuitive and most guys have no problems at all with the systems.

      Until you get a runaway STAB and then you grab those two STAB cut outs FAST before the system drives the nose HARD UP or HARD DOWN

      The MD-83s were a very old Douglas DC-9 design concept, designed and designed over and over again to keep it ‘up to date’ as a design. It was a bit like grandpa’s favourite axe… two new heads and 5 new handles. During some of these ‘re-design’ errors crept in and basic parameters were stretched to the breaking point. Douglas / Macdonald Douglas should have cut their losses and given the technology and honourable burial but $$$$ talk and folks die.

      85 | March 13, 2019 11:53 pm

      Opps elevators round the wrong way

      Pull back on the elevator…. tabs move DOWN adding lift to the elevator trailing edge… elevator trailing edge moves UP …… and the tail loses lift so it moves DOWN……….. pitching the nose UP to climb the airplane.

      Push forward on the elevator… tabs move UP reducing lift to the elevator trailing edge…. elevator moves DOWN…….. and the tail gains lift and moves UP… pitching the nose DOWN to dive the airplane

      Phew.

      That’s better

      These problems happen because polite and airlines who employ them want the airplane flown automatically as much as possible. 99.9999% of the time computers fly the airplane much more smoothly that pilots can. Except on auto-approaches then the automatics can be rather ‘choppy’ and the slower reaction time of pilot inputs (200 ms) smooth out the approach especially in pitch.

      Companies want pilots to fly using automatic so pilots don’t get actual aircraft handling time and experience. I made it a practice to fly the airplane from Take off to 10,000 feet and from 10,000 feet to landing almost always. Just to keep practiced. Accountants hate it because it uses a little bit more fuel (200-300 lbs).

      Similarly an old crusty skipper used to say that you can NEVER have too much fuel , too many engines, or too much runway in front of you. And the corollary was… The only reason I fly a 4 engined airplane is that they don’t make 5 engined ones anymore!

      This is the most patently ridiculous statement I’ve heard out of a higher court in a long time. “Wrongful marketing”? Even if there were such a thing, it would not be applicable here even under the broadest interpretation possible.

      Adam Lanza MURDERED his mother in order to STEAL her guns and go on his monstrous killing spree. He did not take the AR-15 (which if I recall correctly he never used but was in the trunk of his car) because of any marketing by Remington.

      Orrrrr. Continental Airlines flying through Auckland and headed back to Honolulu full of mainly American tourists. An Air NZ Ground engineer was servicing the airplane and noticed a
      bump’ in the floor of a rear toilet. He looked closer and eventually lifted the floor and found a SHEET of PLYWOOD . When he removed the ply the structural members supporting the floor were corroded by the leaking blue toilet flushing agent, leaving one structural member swinging in the breeze. Naturally he brought it to the attention of the resident Continental engineer and the Kiwi engines refused to sign off the airplane as fit to fly. Continental Airlines immediately put pressure on their tame Senator who phoned the FAA and it was agreed that the airplane could ‘position empty back to the continental US. That however was not good enough and the US Senator put further pressure on the FAA to allow Continental to just lock off that toilet and fly back to the States FULL of passengers ! They took off 6 hours late risking 280 American citizens while the lawyers battled it out with the FAA about allowing an unsafe airplane to operate out of NZ airspace. By then it was a feit accomplice.

      So Lori Lauchner has been fired by the Hallmark Channel. Sephora may be dropping the cosmetic line advertised by her useless daughter. And people are filing class action suits against the universities.

      Schadenfreude. Yeah, I’m a terrible person

      One of the questions many are asking now is how that piece of crap David Attention Hogg got into Harvard with lousy grades and less than stellar SAT scores. I originally thought Harvard offered him a place, but if that isn’t the case, it would not surprise me to learn that Bloomberg wrote a check.

      This is a beautiful pic. The photog, Jeff Shultz, is ‘doing’ thi Iditarod this year and I’ll probably be shelling out for every book, print, etc.

      Anyway, this is the Bering Sea, which is along the route being used this year (the Southern route). Usually iced over but it seems it melted early this year. The musher is Aily Zirkle, who has taken 4th place.

      @ The Barbarian:

      the little bitch got in because they thought he has some cachet. He does, but it doesn’t smell the way they think it does.

      He really was the canary in the coal mine in all this. Harvard was more than willing to debase their brand for that punk

      Never know that this was hiding in clear view deep in the GAFA (Great Australian Fuck All) 🙂

      No wonder the Chinese were attempting to buy vast stretches of ‘cattle’ country’ …. fortunately unsuccessfully. These reaches of the Outback are patrolled by NORFORCE a Reserve army unit and NOTHING goes un-noticed from the eyes on the ground of NORFORCE. Not even Chinese trying to infiltrate, and dying of thirst during the ‘dry’ or being eaten by crocs in the ‘wet’ in the process.

      China can of course ‘look’ electronically but stopping the Chinese 5G will certainly help snuff out that option as well.

      Unknown. It was during Clinton’s years as president. I do know that it was hushed up in the NZ press as the NZ Labour government were making ‘kissy face’ to Clinton at the time.

      You really have to hand it to the Chinese. They will try on almost anything no matter how bare faced outrageous it is. Like trying to buy a huge cattle station down the road from one of Australia’s Jindalee ultra long range over the horizon radar stations. There are 3 of these massive stations deep in the bush and can watch airplanes taking off and landing in China and as far away as the Middle East. Jindalee were watching SCUDs being launched during Desert Storm 1, reporting their location via satellite to a receiver in Honolulu, then vis cable to the US west coast and again by satellite to Central command in Florida. The signals ere analysed in real time and the co-ordinates and targeting information up-linked to strategic forces in Iraq for destruction….. all i real time.

      Amazing… and that was two decades ago!

      @ eaglesoars:

      I’m still waiting for Avenutti’s hearing.

      It appears that he may be in some serious hot water regarding the timing of his law firm’s second bankruptcy filing. He was supposed to participate in a debtor’s examination re the lawsuit recently won by the former partner, and was specifically instructed by the receiver NOT to file again.

      Judge Bauer wants to question him. THIS is not good.

      Also, what we are seeing w/Manafort amounts to nothing less than judicial murder.

      3 hospitals in 5 days…having a Lagunitas IPA, an Oliva G Churchill, and a belt of tequila in the parking lot sitting on the tailgate and watching some big thunderstorms roll in… some moments are worth the pause.

      Home late tomorrow night.

      Its 70f…but not for long.

      Think about all of the time Manafort spent in solitary. That can drive you out of your mind.
      It is disgraceful.

      I heard some woman today saying the reason he thought he could go on ‘his excellent adventure’ is because he’s a white male who can afford a stay at home wife.

      long knives are out. I’m not sure Tingles and his ilk will take much notice, tho.

      half the remaining mushers are in to Nome. We expect the race to finish up on Sunday with the Red Lantern arrivals – which will include Blair. I’m tired, good nite.

      Republicans should stay completely out of the Democratic primaries. Don’t air a single campaign ad saying anything negative about any of them until after the convention and we know who will be facing in the general election. Gather up as much information about all the candidates and once The final campaign is in full swing, unload with everything.

      The two mosques in Christchurch we’re attacked at 1440 this afternoon during Friday prayers.

      At lease 9 dead so far and multiple wounded in 2 co-ordinated attacks. Triage centre has been set up at Christchurch Central hospital just 400 years from the Dean’s Ave Central Mosque to receive casualties.

      AOS Police Armed Offenders Squad have one suspect in custody after ramming a white van with a police car and trapping the driver inside wedged against a building. The Christchurch shooter was described as dressed in cam gear and carrying a military style rifle. Reports say that he changed magazines multiple times and fired off at least 6 magazines. He then quietly walked out of the mosque and down the street firing at fleeing people from the mosque. He has not been found spot far and it is reported that he may have been wearing a bike helmet so he could have escaped on a bike
