    I’ll get this posted quick as I gotta get some shut-eye.

    From one of last night’s med charts:

    Focused Assessment Complaint: states she has chest pain and is not feeling well after smoking crack. states that last time she smoked she felt the same way.

    I get paid for people’s stupidity.

    Enjoy your Thursday and don’t smoke any crack!

      NOW what?

      Donald Trump’s ‘promise’ to unnamed foreign leader is at the heart of mystery whistleblower complaint that spy chief refuses to hand over to Adam Schiff, new report claims

      Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a ‘promise’ that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an intelligence official to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter told the Washington Post.

      One of the officials said the communication was a phone call. It was not immediately clear who the foreign leader was or what Trump discussed with the leader.

      WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK??

      Colt is ending production of AR-15s

      Colt released a statement on Thursday to clarify the decision, which was made because the company simply isn’t selling enough of the rifles in the civilian marketplace to continue devoting the resources into it — a pattern that may be attributed to Colt rifles’ $1,000+ price tag and a market supplied with lower priced competitors.

      Colt President and CEO Dennis Veilleux said, “The fact of the matter is that over the last few years, the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity. Given this level of manufacturing capacity, we believe there is adequate supply for modern sporting rifles for the foreseeable future.”

      The Inspector General of Intel is one Michael K Atkinson. The letter is telling Schiff and Nunes that altho HE believes the complaint falls within Congress’s purview, the Acting DNI does not, so he’s flummoxed trying to get the info to Schiff, et. al. It’s a long letter, but see 2nd para, page 2

      Have you ever seen a cheap Colt anything? Not going to happen.

      They actually have a very small segment of the civilian market at this point, and from what I’ve read, there’s a ton of unsold inventory sitting in distributors’ warehouses. If they can’t move the merchandise they already have, why make more?

      Colt is primarily a handgun manufacturer that also makes M-4 carbines for military and law enforcement sales. Stopping civilian sales of ARs won’t even register on their bottom line.

      No. My grandfather had a gorgeous Colt 45 revolver – pearl handles, the whole nine yards, maybe a classic Peacemaker – – that I was supposed to inherit from my father – that somehow disappeared when my father died. How pissed off am I? I could never afford to replace it even if I found its twin.

      Yup. I was bumming around the local gun Shops this summer, no gun shows, and was seeing M4s / AR15 platforms going between $500-600, but not Colt…they were usually @ $1,000 and up. Their margins are not derived from the civilian market, but more always structured on LEO / military contracts.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if he DOES know that they’ll be closed. That way he won’t be embarrassed by the optics of all the people pushing past his protesters to get some chicken strips and waffle fries, like they did to the idiots in Toronto earlier in the week.

      The Patriots have just released Antonio Brown.

Apparently he’s been sending threatening tweets/texts to a woman who accused him of rape. Her lawyer contacted the NFL and Patriots and told them he’d be wise to stop.


    46. 47 | September 20, 2019 4:47 pm

      Okay, time for a little of spitballin’ conspiracy re “the Whistleblower.”

      What if….Trump camp realizes MSM will never latch on to the old story about Biden withholding tax dollars to fire prosecutor for his son’s wrongdoing. So send out the “Whistleblower” to hint of nefarious phone call – other staffers play along, including Asst. Dep. trying to keep him from Congress.

      LEAKS say it had to do with Ukraine, telling them to go ahead and investigate Biden’s son’s ties. Meanwhile that tape recording Biden would like people to forget about – that he blackmailed Ukraine with U.S. tax dollars to get them to stop government investigation of his son’s possible wrongdoing – is getting a boatload of airplay.

      Interesting. Now it’s back out in the open. On every major conservative talk show this afternoon.

      I guess he doesn’t know that the CIA bugged Nixon’s Oval.

      Anthony Codevilla, however, has the intel community’s number and he guts them.

      Alas, there is nothing new about the intelligence community sabotaging this president, and nothing new in his allowing them to do it.

      Contrary to the nonsense conservatives hear on Fox News, the CIA has always been more interested in, and capable of, influencing U.S. policy and politics, as well as in spreading progressivism, than it is in learning about foreigners’ secrets. From the beginning, it has been addicted to cronyism and allergic to quality control. It takes what comes over the transom, and calls it good. Over the years, its combination of professional incompetence and political presumption spread to the FBI.

      yeah, that’s what I thought. This ‘whistleblower’ didn’t hear a damn thing. ‘whistleblower’ is being used as a cover to escape leaking penalties

      The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.

      THIS…..is CNN

      Looks like De Blasio’s entire presidential “campaign” may have been to enable a “pay to play” scheme:

      FEC finds fault with de Blasio’s campaign finances

      “[The campaign] appears to have concocted a shell game to arrange for a small number of wealthy donors to support de Blasio’s presidential run above and beyond legal contribution limits,” the group’s complaint said.

      Thursday’s FEC letter did not delve into the issue of contribution limits, but simply requested the campaign amend its public reports.

      The mayor ended his presidential run Friday morning. However, the federal Fairness PAC will live on and his former campaign treasurer and top City Hall aide Jon Paul Lupo will consult for the action committee. If history is any indication, that leaves the door open for the mayor to continue a practice that has raised questions from political observers: soliciting money from businesses, people and communities who want action from city government.
