When the F.B.I arrests "Nunberg the traitor" might I suggest that they use a little more force than is necessary? Perhaps Sam resisted arrest.......if you know what I mean......and a riot stick had to be used used to crack open his left kneecap just to bring him under control.....if you know what I mean.....? Just to send a message to the rest of the Benedict Arnolds that the deep state is coming for them.

This has some background on the last election and his resignation.

MM:
And as we read the post on the other blog we absorbed that information and read the link to it.

Captain Hate

Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi is resigning April 1 due to health issues.

This having to happen is a travesty brought on by the Turtle, who engineered a gutter campaign against McDaniel to secure the win for Cochran even though it was well known he was on the fast fade. I can't even be upset about Cochran over it because he was surely too out of it to know what was being done in his name. At least he can leave with more dignity than McRINO; not that that's saying much.

GUS

A war is coming. Someone should tell Sessions.

maryrose

CH:
I believe it is a preemptive move for McDaniel to try for Cochran’s seat in the special election rather than challenge Wicker .

Miss Marple the Deplorable

maryrose,

I am sorry if some of the information was repetitive. It's hard for me to keep everything straight, and I would rather make a mistake by duplication than ignore something.

Extraneus

Thank you Duda, I didn't know about Nunberg and obviously had no idea how important he was to you assholes. If they lean on him, will he sue Mueller for being improperly appointed and therefore illegitimate, due to the fact that no crime was ever posited when Rosey chartered Mueller, even though the law that allows Special Counsel investigations requires that?

I think Sam Nunberg deserves a formal invite to JOM.

Just a suggestion, feel free to ignore.
We covered all this info at the time it was happening in real time.
Why not comment on it yourself like CH just did and showcase your thoughts on it?
It then provides a fresh perspective.

Gov. Hickenlooper's kind of a liar, huh?

Posted by: Extraneus

I am quite sure he is, in light of the report of the Ohio sheriff who offered classes to teachers in his county two Saturdays ago on gun defense and had to close them at 300 because that was all he could handle at one time.

Ordinarily I wouldn't cite anything from the review, which is in the pillow covering business.

Hickenlooper doesn’t care about curbing violence in schools.
I challenge him to install security scanners in each every school and to hire security guards for each one.
Then we can talk about how many teachers will be armed.

From the end of the Tim Kaine/Medicare link:

Chip Kahn, president of the FAH, told Kaine after his remarks that his organization was concerned about lower reimbursement rates under Medicare. He urged lawmakers to work to fix Obamacare.

"We signed on [to Obamacare] because we thought it was the best route to universal coverage, and if it hadn't been for the Supreme Court and Republicans, it would have been," Kahn said, referring to changes that were made to the healthcare law over the years.

FAH stands for Federation of American Hospitals.

Best route to universal coverage. Ugh.

This is an excellent biographical article about Devin Nunes. While I knew he was a descendant of Portuguese immigrants and a dairy farmer, I didn't know much about what propelled him to run for office or any of his history.

I really recommend this article.

maryrose,

I assume many, like me, miss some information along the way. For example, daddy is often where he has limited internet. Others have jobs and cannot read every single post. And some, like me, forget things.

If you think I am repeating something, just scroll on by.

As far as me doing my own commentary, I don't have the authority of someone like Conservative Treehouse. I also am unwilling to set up my own site as I like to keep a low profile. I have already been stalked and had to block my nutso ex-husband on Twitter, so anything which would get me exposure is not something I am interested in.

PDinDetroit

The interesting thing is that controlled semi-auto rifle fire is far more deadly than full-auto most of the time (Full-Auto definitely has uses). One of the reasons that the 3 round burst was introduced, many people cannot control full-auto firing.

In an M4 (Full-Auto and 3-round-burst version of AR-15), a 30 round magazine is empty in 3 seconds. Very difficult moving from target to target and being accurate. Wastes plenty of ammo too.

Maryrose, get off of Miss Marple's butt! She does a great job of posting news on here, and you can easily scroll by anything that is a repeat.

Miss Marple you mean the professional latino (formerly known as Jerry Rivers) is sucking up to the Trump family? My my my.

As for the Oscars---haven't watched them for years. My wife and daughter still do. I read a book and enjoy a glass of wine in another room. Daughter has admonished me, "You can't say anything bad about the Oscars". Only way to do that is to refuse to watch it at all.

Looking at this year's viewership figures (in the paper this morning) I guess I had plenty of company last night.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Comanche Voter,

Indeed you did! I think I quit watching about 4 years ago, but there is no way I would have watched this year.
I consider Rivers a bellweather for where the power and popular opinion is going. Remember well how he sucked up to W and then got on the anti-W bandwagon due to the hurricane in New Orleans.

That's why I posted tat tweet. It's a Sign. LOL!

Hunting licenses in New York can be issued to those 16 years or older who have passed courses. Youths 14-16 can hunt with a 21+ mentor who has hunted for three years.

There is no law in New York restricting age for a rifle or shotgun.

As one who learned to handle target rifles safely around 10 years old, I would need a good reason to change the laws. I appreciated the responsibility I was given.

If you want to consider restricting access to those who have proven they are not law-abiding, I might consider it.

If you want to keep young people from learning to exercise responsibility, I want to understand why.

You make good points. I have been conflicted about this because of worrying about the irresponsible kids, and because I am not one who owns guns.

I follow that, sbw, but I really hadn't considered if there were any age restrictions in place. PD made a good point about people of military age being able to purchase guns and I appreciate that. Those in my family who wanted shotguns or rifles got them at whatever age the parents or grandparents wanted.

My question for readers is why did LA country prosecutor Patrick Frey carry on a correspondence with anarchist and FBI target Barrett Brown, who was raided by FBI in March and who has been referred to by intelligence outfits like Imperva as a member of the LulzSec crime syndicate? What else went on between them?

Los Angeles and Frey's conservative readership alike deserve answers to these questions, which I will provide over the next few days.

Barrett Brown

Miss Marple the Deplorable

maryrose,

You are a counselor? My gosh, I am horrified given how you have come after me and others!

You definitely left the opinion that everyone should read every single post. This is a ridiculous point, since many people are doing other things, like flying planes over the Pacific or editing newspapers or writing books or other work.

Might I remind you that you didn't know why the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia visiting the Coptic cathedral in Egypt was a big deal? I didn't criticize you, but instead merely explained. However, I will now point out that if you didn't know why that was a big deal, you are not keeping up with current events the way you should be.

For gosh sakes, that was an extremely insulting post to Bubarooni! Take a break and have a glass of wine or something. You are entirely off base!
