      263k new jobs against Wall St expectation of 190k. That’s massive. From the numbers I saw, the largest growth I saw is in service at a little over 200k, then construction at just over 30K

      where’s the inflation? There isn’t any. Unless it’s in asset prices. I don’t know. The Fed is going to be told to cut, but I’m betting they’ll hold. It ain’t broke, they won’t be fixing it.

      In December 2018, two Chinese nationals were
      indicted for conspiracy to commit computer
      intrusions, conspiracy to commit wire fraud,
      and aggravated identity theft. The Chinese
      nationals worked for a company in China
      called Huaying Haitai Science and Technology
      Development Company and acted in
      association with the Chinese Ministry of State
      Security’s Tianjin State Security Bureau.
      Through their involvement with a hacking
      group operating in China known as Advanced
      Persistent Threat 10 (APT10), the Chinese
      nationals conducted global campaigns of
      computer intrusions targeting intellectual
      property and confidential business and
      technological information at managed service
      providers. The APT10 group stole hundreds
      of gigabytes of sensitive data and targeted the
      computers of victim companies involved in
      aviation, space and satellite technology,
      manufacturing technology, pharmaceutical
      technology, oil and gas exploration and
      production technology, communications
      technology, computer processor technology,
      and maritime technology.

      APT10. Remember that one.

      The state Senate voted 27-10 on Thursday to require anyone appearing on the state’s presidential primary ballot to publicly release five years’ worth of income tax returns. The proposal is in response to Trump, who bucked 40 years of tradition by refusing to release his tax returns prior to his election in 2016.

      Never cut when you can hold as that is ammunition held in your back pocket for times when you REALLY do need to cut. If at all possible even add a tad to nudge the interest rates a little higher when you can again as future ammunition to use when you REALLY need to cut rates.

      HERE WE GO-> House Dems Ask DC, Virginia Bar Associations to Investigate Bill Barr

      The rabid House Democrats are gunning for Bill Barr and they are doing everything possible to take him down.

      Democrat Representatives Ted Lieu (CA) and Kathleen Rice (NY) on Thursday wrote a 4-page letter to the DC and Virginia bar associations asking them to open an ethics investigation into Barr.

      “By deceiving Congress and the American people, who vested their trust in both the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice at large, Attorney General Barr must be subject to a professional review for the sake of the legal profession and the public,” the Democrat lawmakers wrote.

      Lieu and Rice referenced the March 27th letter Mueller sent Bill Barr in their letter to the bar associations, arguing that the rules prohibit making false statements and engaging in dishonesty or misrepresentation “which may reflect adversely on the lawyer’s fitness to practice law.”

      “At best AG Barr misled the public. At worst he perjured himself before Congress. We shouldn’t accept that from any attorney, let alone our top law enforcement official,” Congresswoman Kathleen Rice said on Friday.

      In a little-noticed exchange during his Senate hearing Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr made a surprising disclosure that could allow the public and press to obtain sensitive details about the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

      During a back-and-forth with Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, Barr identified Alexander Downer, as the FBI’s source for the information that sparked the bureau’s counterintelligence investigation into George Papadopoulos and other Trump campaign associates.

      The federal government had not officially identified Downer as the source until Wednesday. His role in the investigation was publicly known, but only through press reports and his own statements to the media.

      Federal agencies could deny requests for information about Downer and his role in the opening of “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s name for the counterintelligence investigation, without official confirmation from U.S. government officials.

      That all changed on Wednesday, according to Bradley Moss, the deputy executive director of the James Madison Project, a transparency group that handles national security-related lawsuits.

      “That disclosure by the Attorney General would certainly assist any FOIA litigant seeking additional details about the origins of the Russia investigation, as it appears to be the first time the U.S. Government has officially acknowledged the accuracy of prior media reporting that Downer was the source of information,” said Moss.
      Downer’s role in the Russia probe has been referenced in several major Russia probe documents, though he hadn’t been identified by name until Barr’s comments.

      The special counsel’s report refers to a “representative of a foreign government” who is mostly likely Downer. Memos released by California Reps. Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff last year laid out details of the origins of the Russia probe in publicly released memos, but references to sources are redacted from the documents.

      It is not clear whether Barr intended to identify Downer as the FBI’s source for the Papadopoulos tip. The revelation came after Durbin asked Barr whether he agreed with the premise of the FBI’s investigation.

      On July 26, 2016, the Australian government passed the FBI a memo that Downer had written on May 11, 2016, following a meeting he had in London with Papadopoulos. Downer claimed that Papadopoulos made a reference to Russians possibly releasing information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Aussies sat on the memo until after WikiLeaks began releasing DNC emails.

      Barr suggested in his testimony that he has concerns with the FBI’s rationale for opening the investigation based on the Aussie tip.

      “I would have to see exactly what the report was from Downer, the Australian Downer, and exactly what he quoted Papadopoulos as saying,” Barr told Durbin.

      “But from what you just read, I’m not sure what the correlation was between the Russians having dirt and jumping to the conclusion that that suggested foreknowledge of the hacking.”

      The Daily Caller News Foundation filed a FOIA request for the FBI’s records on Downer on Thursday.

      41 | May 4, 2019 12:01 am

      I wonder if the FOIA will contain Downer’s proclivity for wearing women’s underwear to and net stockings and suspender belt with red 6″ slingback “fuck me” heels to his Bohemian Grove get togethers?

      Stacey Abrams Again Claims She Won Georgia Governor’s Race: ‘I Am Not Delusional’

      Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams again claimed she won the state’s 2018 gubernatorial race on Friday, despite losing to now-Gov. Brian Kemp.

      “I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.”

      She made the remarks an a Houston fundraiser hosted by Annie’s List, a group that seeks to elect progressive women into office. Abrams justified her refusal to accept the result of the election by calling Kemp “an architect of voter suppression that spent the last eight years knitting together a system of voter suppression that is unparalleled in America.”

      According to Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, she said in her remarks that “we don’t have to concede elections anymore, because when we concede, we are condoning systems that are used to oppress us.”

      I beg to differ…

      on her last bracket one of the other teams had an archer drop out because her fingers were blistering from shooting so much and they reduced the flights from 6 to 3

      whoever wins this tourney deserves it

      Well, it was shocking to say the least. Today, the Kentucky Derby very unexpectedly publicly committed suicide.

      Yes, they disqualified the winning horse for “Interference” that never happened.

      Ok…I’m with all the horse people for my parent’s yearly Derby party.

      Omg. A soaked track with standing water and they called it like that?

      The horse peeps are flabbergasted and frankly, angry.

      The interference rules are supposed to be disregarded on what is known as a “Sloopy track”

      Jack walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm.

      He sat down at the bar next to Alexandria and stared up at the TV as the 10 o’clock news came on.

      The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building, preparing to jump.

      Alexandria looked at Jack and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”

      Jack said, “You know what, I bet he will.”

      Alexandria replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.” Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, “You’re on!

      Just as she placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death.

      She was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, “Fair’s fair… Here’s your money.”

      Jack replied, “I can’t take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 o’clock news and knew he would jump.”

      Alexandria replied, “I did too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.”

      Jack took the money. Alexandria went back to work in the U.S. Congress.

      Only horse race I watch is the grand national. Unfortunately sometimes horses, and riders die.

      At 6:50 somethingis dead.

      I think Israel is prepping to send ground troops into Gaza. Like SOON. They blew up a Hamas commander earlier.

      I don’t know what got into Hamas, seemingly out of the blue. Dumbasses.
