Stacey 'Boxcar' Abrams Under Investigation By State Ethics Commission
[Daily Caller] The Georgia state ethics commission will subpoena bank records from Stacey Abrams’ 2018 gubernatorial campaign and several other groups that raised money to help her candidacy.
Your specific menu may vary. Updates to follow.
David Emadi, a former Douglas County prosecutor who became director of the state ethics commission Monday, announced on Thursday that he will soon subpoena Abrams’ gubernatorial campaign, various political action committees and special interest groups that supported her failed campaign, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"What I can say about the investigation into the Abrams campaign is in the relatively near future, I expect we will be issuing subpoenas for bank and finance records of both Miss Abrams and various PACs and special-interest groups that were affiliated with her campaign," Emadi said to reporters on Thursday.

It’s not immediately clear what Abrams’ camp is being investigated for specifically, and the new director did not give many details on the matter. The ethics commission, known formally as the Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission, is tasked with collecting reports on lobbying expenditures, vendor grift and campaign finance. The Commission is also in charge of issuing penalties for any violations pertaining to these issues.

Wikipedia on Orion

Manufacturer Lockheed Martin
Airbus Defence and Space

The Orion MPCV uses the same basic configuration as the Apollo Command and Service Module (CSM) that first took astronauts to the Moon, but with an increased diameter, updated thermal protection system, and a host of other modern technologies. Orion will support long-duration deep space missions with up to 21 days active crew time plus 6 months quiescent spacecraft life.[10] During the quiescent period crew life support would be provided by another module, such as the proposed Deep Space Habitat. The spacecraft's life support, propulsion, thermal protection, and avionics systems can be upgraded as new technologies become available.[citation needed]

The Orion spacecraft includes both crew and service modules, and a spacecraft adapter. The Orion's crew module is larger than Apollo's and can support more crew members for short or long-duration missions. The European service module propels and powers the spacecraft as well as storing oxygen and water for astronauts.

There are no NASA estimates for the Orion program recurring yearly costs once operational, for a certain flight rate per year, or for the resulting average costs per flight.

#3  Hale said that Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament “was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification.”

"It is not illegal per se, but we just don't like it. Who does he think he is, Trump?"

Whoa: Text Messages Reveal NYT Reporter Told Kavanaugh Source What To Say
[Townhall] A Senate Judiciary Committee report revealed that New York Times reporter Robin Pogrebin coached sources on what to say and how to respond to her questions based on information she obtained, The Federalist reported. Her motive was to shape a false narrative against now-sitting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and allegations of sexual misconduct. Pogrebin is one of the co-authors of the anti-Kavanaugh book whose chapter was featured in the New York Times last week.

They do not deserve to be called "journalists" anymore, or characterized as "the press."

There needs to be a new category under the law that combines political activist organization with profit-seeking publicly-traded corporation.

And new laws need to be written that deny them the kinds of protections we provide journalists. They aren't journalists at all.

Idaho Legislator: State Considering Defunding Leftist Agenda on Boise State Campus
[BREITBART] Idaho House Representative Tammy Nichols spoke to SiriusXM Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle that Idaho’s state legislators are considering defunding Boise State University after revelations that the school’s new president, Marlene Tromp, is seeking to implement a leftist agenda at the university.

“[In] a lot of conservative areas, there’s this attack that’s going on — and we’re seeing things slipping in,” said Rep. Nichols on Saturday. “Idaho has been one of the fastest growing states in the nation, so we’ve been getting people from all over, moving to our state.”

“We had a new president for Boise State [Marlene Tromp] that was selected to take over,” continued Nichols, “and we got a hold of an email that was sent out after she took her position — changes she wanted to make [to the university] — and as we started looking through this email, we became really concerned.”

#4  Gromgoru - I believe that this could be the case now, but at least when I was in school, I saw the minds of so many classmates decimated by relentless leftists BS at university even after they made it to 17-19 without being too badly off. It seems so hard to believe that things have gotten even worse in a relatively short time (I entered university in the late 00s). The university indoctrination really was a lot worse than in K-12, at least where I was (our school drew very heavily from more conservative areas of our state, so parents might have been resisting better while their kids were in school).

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Says He Doesn’t ‘Think There Was Any Coercion’ From Trump
[DAILYWIRE] In a recent interview with Hromadske, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko denied that President Trump attempted to pressure the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, into investigating former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...The former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body...
(emphasis added):

I want to say that we are an independent country. We have our own secrets. Our president has the right to speak to another president so that that conversation remains confidential. This is the one precondition that leaders [set] each other so that they can exchange sensitive information. American Sherlocks have the full right to turn to the U.S. and to get this information if they think that our president has been pressured. They can clear this up. I know what they spoke about, and I don't think there was any coercion. There was a talk ‐ talks can be on different topics; leaders have the right to talk about any problems they wish. This conversation was long, it was friendly, and it touched on a lot of questions, some of which had rather serious implications.

Bill Weld suggests Trump could face execution over Ukraine phone call
[FOXNEWS] Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who is challenging President Trump in the Republican primaries, proclaimed Monday that the president committed treason through his controversial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky -- adding that the punishment for treason is death.

The statement drew a swift rebuke from the Trump campaign.

"The media’s affliction with Trump Derangement Syndrome has driven them into an actual discussion of the proposed execution of the President of the United States," communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News. "In severe cases of TDS such as this, immediate consultation with a physician is recommended.”

Sheila Jackson Lee Confuses AR-15 for 10 Moving Boxes and a Heavy Machine Gun
[PJMEDIA] Introducing her new gun control legislation, Congresscritter Sheila Jackson Lee
......the clownish U.S. Representative-for-life for Texas's 18th congressional district, serving since 1995. The district includes most of inner-city Houston. She is noted for her lack of tact and intellect. She is a member of the Democratic Party, and almost its epitome......
(D-Texas) proved conclusively that she's just too uninformed to go anywhere near the subject. She claims to have "held an AR-15 in my hand," which weighed as much as "10 boxes that you might be moving." She also claimed the rifle fired a .50 caliber round, and that "these kinds of bullets need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street."

"I held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving. And the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street." - Rep. @JacksonLeeTX18 pic.twitter.com/U71ir6BHZH

If Lee wants to ban 90-pound .50 caliber AR-15s, I say, "Why not?" While she's at it, Lee could put a ban on flying cars, unicorns, and doing seven impossible things before breakfast. If Lee wants to get heavy .50 machine guns off the streets, well, first she's going to have to get some on the streets.

#1  Maybe she is confusing the AR-15 with a Bofors gun. It's an easy mistake to make if you are as ignorant as she is.

Posted by: SteveS || 09/24/2019 0:25 Comments || Top||

#2  The AR-15 modified to fire the .50 Beowulf proprietary cartridge exists: "...the .50 Beowulf is best described as a low-velocity, heavy caliber, making its ballistics roughly equivalent to those of early .45-70 Government rounds rather than the higher pressure rounds tolerated by lever-action rifles such as the Marlin Model 1895."

By the way: The .45-70 rifle cartridge, also known as .45-70 Government, was developed at the U.S. Army 's Springfield Armory for use in the Springfield Model 1873, which is known to collectors as the "Trapdoor Springfield.". Ooh! Scary! Not that any sane person would want to be shot by this round, but a big, bad sniper/machine gun bullet it ain't.

TL/DR: "She keeps using that word (.50 caliber). I don't think it means what she thinks it means."
