Well, since we must. Enjoyed Chinese food at Hung Wai Ching’s My Tantalus home as a kid. Ching made sure Japanese-Americans in Hawaii were not put in internment camps during WWII. Other notables my brother’s and I got to talk with at that dinner: General Feilding (“make a note of that Fielding” as seen in Tora Tora Tora), Admiral Christie (head of submarines in the Pacific WWII). Fielding lost it laughing when I asked Christie if the John Wayne film about torpedoes not working was factual. Ching was my grandfather’s good friend and neighbor from his USARPAC command days. We were visiting my uncle, then Commander AntiSubmarine Warfare Pacific out of Pearl.

Bringing the memory back is seeing this tweet about a friend I grew up with on the Ferguson Mo swim team thru high school, we shared many birthday parties (he is one year younger than I). Good to see he is doing the joint Pacific Command from Pearl Hickam as is ties it all together. Small world eh?

Evangelicals band together to pray for the President.
Statement from AFA--

AFA is joining 250+ Christian leaders and Rev. Franklin Graham in asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2, as a special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump.

President Trump's enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. We believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God.

This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice. Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President.

We know that God hears and answers prayer. He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful, and He rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, "that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior" (1 Timothy 2:2–3, NKJV).

On June 2, we ask that pastors would lead their congregations in praying for the President, that Sunday schools and other groups would join together and pray, and that individuals and families across the country would have a special focus on praying for the President that day.

Instead of having workers claim and then prove discrimination, Kamala Harris wants the opposite.

I'm actually arguing about the football Rooney Rule in another blog, and there are people who say they think that forcing teams to interview minority candidates helps minority candidates, as if racist owners would hire minorities just because of this rule rather than opt for inferior candidates due to their racism, and thus lose more football games due to their inferior hires.

Captain Hate

The FISA abuse alone is breathtaking in its scope. This article says Judge Rosemary Collier has found that 34,000 of 40,000 searches of NSA's database from 2012 to 2016 were illegal. Of 5000 searches between 10/16 and 4/17, 4250 were illegal or noncompliant.

I think I've posted a link to the Rosemary Collyer report that was declassified in the Spring of 2017 at least a dozen times since it was released. It's why I've been saying for over two years that the spying went on since at least 2012.

There is no way in hell that isn't coming out. It was the basis for Horowitz' FISA abuse investigation. People most definitely are going to be indicted.

From the end of that Lifson piece:

Recall that U.S. attorney for Utah John Huber is investigating the handling of the dropped prosecution of her violations of national security law with her home-brew server and possible crimes related to the Clinton Foundation, including, presumably, the Uranium One acquisition of U.S. uranium reserves by Russian interests and the massive donations to the Clinton Foundation.

It would be great if Huber was able to come through and not go down in history as a useless fool.

Narciso's response has me a little more confused, Sid.

To me heaters and coolant go hand in hand, Air Conditioning(AC) and refrigerant go hand in hand.

I'm not quite clear on the problem anymore and I don't know another way to rephrase my questions.

Stu Voigt was my summer camp counselor in International Falls when I was 10. I learned his trick for soft catching hands. Ping pong balls caught with the fingertips, only. Most of the Vikings offensive line was there to learn footwork by American Indian dancing, a trick let on by Bronco Nagurski, who lived nearby and owned the Union 76 station downtown. Mr. Nagurski had the biggest hands I'd ever seen, then and now. Gas pump handle could fit in his palm.

Voigt loved using a double headed axe in competitive felling.

I think Comey has been Trump's ally since the Gambino case in the late 1980s. But the left figured out why Comey made his Hillary announcements, why he left so many bread crumbs & it wasn't Comey's "gross negligence". Spygate was never about Trump, it was about stopping Comey.

I was getting more confused during the conversation. Coolant is for heater and engine and didn’t see it as a major concern for the AC. Suspect the selector door as TK or refrigerant which would indicate a leak.. but not sure if air would still be coming from dashboard if selector is goofy. I’m in Abilene Tx and ANY air from the blower is gonna be hot in May if no AC is working.

Threadkiller

Sid, I was concerned with the "blend" door which separates the heater core from the plenum. That is controlled by the TEMP knob. When narciso mentions air conditioning it throws me off. That system is controlled by the MODE knob that also operates several "selector" doors within the plenum.

I have no idea what the car is doing. If there is little noticeable temprature difference between the full right and full left of the TEMP knob, that is one problem. If, in addition to that, the air does not drop in temperature when AC is selected on the MODE knob and the TEMP is in the coldest setting, it could be a couple of problems.

I would listen for the compression cycling to at least confirm that the AC is trying to work. Click then a pause then another click.

Good luck narciso, I'm afraid I may not be giving you the best info.
