Trucking companies often buy diesel in bulk to send trucks out full and reduce the amount of fuel they need to pay bust-out retail for while on the road.

Can easily see this being sold under the table.


Maybe, did they check the plates of the vehicle in question,

I just got my Betsy Ross Rush Limbaugh shirt - its the newer edition, a real pretty blue and very soft material. Only 4 days to get it 😃from day of order to delivery. Can't wait to wear it to Bible Study tomorrow. Everyone is a Trump fan.


I get in baltimore very little is orobably on the up and up.


The journal had no need for him:



I see on Twitter that New Orleans fans are bringing Bibles to the next game to show solidarity with Drew Brees.





Beautiful evening in Fayetteville tonight! Big day in North Carolina tomorrow. Make sure you get out and VOTE for Dan Bishop in #NC09 and Greg Murphy in #NC03! pic.twitter.com/bu296fHQab

Pictures at the link, including one from outside, showing how large the crowds were which couldn't get in.





This fellow is who they based the red aparrow atory around:


So sciutto wasnt enough, now they bring out kem dilanian (his track record is as bad as the cubs)


NBC News
BREAKING: A fmr. senior Russian official is living in the Washington area under U.S. government protection, current and former government officials tell @NBCNews



And why does NBC news tell anyone?


They want to get him killed, i guess, i included the link from sam neils character in red october.


The other link is a fellow who gave up the chapman ring theyve been looking for him for nearly ten years.


Thats who peter strzok has taken the credit for btw



I have given up on figuring out the ins and outs of who leaked what and who has the truth.

Look at this tweet from Brit Hume. Why would he report something like this?

Brit Hume
Herein the ultimate blind quote, second-hand from an anonymous source speaking to some other news outlet: “He’s deteriorating in plain sight,” one Republican strategist who is in frequent contact with the White House told Business Insider on Friday.”

Another Bob

I’m hoping Hume was trying to point out the nonsensical non-sourcing of that claim.


Sounds like max boot, hes this close to grazing in the garden

Another Bob

Brees does it again. Engineers a drive with time expiring, and the kicker who missed last year hits from 58 for the win as the clock hits zeroes.

Another Bob

“why does NBC news tell anyone?”

Because they’re traitors?


Oh, looky here!

That would be the father of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's procurer.




Well thats kind of awkward, i would have though the reverse, that bain had funded some pf maxwells purchases



I’ve never worn mine, it’s a white one, but because it has sleeves it’s too bloody hot. I’ve got another flag shirt for 9-11 but if it gets dirty i’ll Buck up to Betsy Ross.

Lawyer up, Ralph.


What a den of slithy toves, rocky, rolls around in


Love that Tom Fitton is getting all the dirt on the Obama administration.
DOJ needs to make a decision and indict McCabe.
They must have all the evidence they need by now.


I thought that name kevin poulson sounded familiar:



This starts to feel like an episode of alias:


Another Bob

Dave, that suit will go nowhere. Herring can’t show damages, and actual malice is essentially an impossible standard.


I think they are trying to get this cat, killed like erovchin and somehow tie it to trump.


Interestingly i was watching an old episode of crime story witn george dzunza as a mig pilot who defects in vegas.


They have indeed wielded sullivan as a sword, the times putting a target on the huntress seven years after the first incident,then came the attack against her husband her daughter the viciousness of joe mcguinness, maybe he ultimately found peace.

Another Bob

And narc, there was no point to it at all except to harass, and be a warning to others.

Should be criminal.


Its why dueling was considered, an honorable enterprise, the likes of hanilton and decatur engaged in it. To varying degrees of success.

Dave (in MA)

Who was the businessman Trump mentioned having mutual hatred with who's now a supporter? If he was identified, I missed it.

I missed a few of them. It's a personal list that I might add or subtract from, but, overall it's a good list.

For instance:
Twelve O’Clock High (1949
Patton (1970)
Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003
Saving Private Ryan (1998)
We Were Soldiers (2002) perhaps my all time favorite, look at the others too, see if he missed any of yours.

"The Air Force should hold off on retiring any legacy bombers until B-21s are rolling off the assembly line in substantial numbers..."

That is counter to current Air Force plans to retire the B-1 and B-2 bombers because of high maintenance costs.

"MITRE suggested that USAF buy a fighter variant of the T-X trainer now entering flight test, and use it for less-demanding missions such as homeland defense, thus “freeing up” more capable 4th- and 5th-generation fighters for combat in an overseas theater..."

"Gerber said MITRE urged a T-X derivative rather than an existing 4th-generation fighter because of expected sharply lower costs to operate the platform versus current aircraft."

I hadn't heard of this before.


Currently not armed. Interesting given the talk about buying more of the latest F-15 or F-16.

Not a day goes by where we could not discuss in these spaces the continuing battle over religious freedom.

I think a lot of these towns should change their marketing plans from trying to attract new industries.

I can't afford great architecture currently, but I love watching "This Old House." Buying a high-quality house that needs some renovations might appeal to people who are retired or have work from home jobs and want a small time community.

I didn't find any boarded-up masterpiece homes, but the prices are nothing like northern NJ. Homes, some with acreage, sell for less than a condo here.


For a'mom--


Update: Mom due to get out of hospital today and you get much better service at hospitals when a family member is consistently there during rounds and brings a legal pad to kepp taking notes. After mulling over distolic heart failure with preserved ejection fraction it now appears as her bnp has come down that it is mostly the pneumonia and viral meningitis.


As I learned right here at JOM, and why I've never left. Truly, somehow, in searching early on as to what that Trayvon thing was about--by Day Three, I knew there was some reason I was only seeing of him as a cute ten or twelve year old, and I wasn't getting the real story.
Maybe Insty linked to JOM? But there was excellent collating being done here.


The Trayvon Hoax That Divided America Is About to Be Exposed

September 9, 2019
By Jack Cashill

"On Monday. September 16, Joel Gilbert will preview his new documentary, “The Trayvon Hoax,” in the 500-seat Ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The screening begins at 1 p.m. Admission is free, and Gilbert is encouraging all interested parties to come see for themselves what could be a game-changer in the way the media report racially-charged news. Gilbert’s findings are that significant.

Having written a book on the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin — If I Had a Son-- I have been following Gilbert’s progress with interest. In fact, I introduced Gilbert to George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. Those who have followed the case know that not since the Scottsboro boys has any ordinary citizen endured the kind of malicious and conspicuously false reporting Zimmerman has. My hope was that Gilbert would set the record straight.

Gilbert has done that and more. In the course of his relentless research into the shooting and subsequent trial, I can say without risk of overstatement that he has unearthed a legal fraud the likes of which I know no parallel. Not only has Gilbert discovered it, but he has also proved it six ways from Sunday, including DNA and handwriting analysis.

If I were Trayvon Martin’s parents or his family’s attorneys, I would be very nervous right now. If I were Florida state attorneys who prosecuted the case, I would be more nervous still. And if I were the media who covered this case — are you listening Matt Gutman and Lisa Bloom? — I would prepare to be mortified. The coverage of this case was a disgrace from day one.

To uncover this staggering fraud, Gilbert did what reporters used to do. He immersed himself in the milieu that produced Trayvon Martin. He mastered the patois of urban black Miami. He reviewed the thousands of text messages, tweets, Facebook and Instagram postings sent and received by Martin and his friends. He interviewed George Zimmerman and heard, from the only person who knew, Martin’s final words, words that revealed the cause of Martin’s tragic downward spiral.

Gilbert did some serious shoe leather reporting as well. He visited all the relevant Miami-area high schools, the neighborhoods where Martin and his friends hung out, the streets of Miami’s Little Haiti, and the town community where Martin died.

At the end of his research, Gilbert knew Trayvon Martin better than his parents did, literally. As their deposition revealed, they had no idea how Martin’s life had descended into a violent mix of street fighting, guns, drugs, burglary, and sex. Although both parents made good incomes, their separate lives created an abyss where a home should have been, and their once promising son fell straight to the bottom of it.

Unwilling to accept their own responsibility for his demise, they took the bait promised by the family attorneys and sweetened by the media and projected their guilt on to George Zimmerman. Although an Obama supporter and civil rights activist, the half-Hispanic Zimmerman proved to be just white enough to play the “racist” killer role in the unholy melodrama that followed.

In the documentary and even more so in the accompanying book of the same name, the Trayvon Hoax, Gilbert shows how politicians — are you listening Andrew Gillum and Barack Obama? -- exploited the ensuing racial divisions to further their political goals. The gratuitous anger the media and political class stoked throughout this case led to the creation of Black Lives Matter, the parallel Ferguson hoax, and a crime wave that that has devastated black America.

All of this was based on one spectacular fraud, and Joel Gilbert uncovered it. The film trailer and website will be live on Thursday, Sept 12. “The Trayvon Hoax,” book and documentary, will be released and available on Amazon later this week in DVD, digital, paperback, and ebook formats."

Tariffs are a lagging indicator. Announce a tariff, orders rise to beat it. Apply the tariffs and orders will, presumably, peter out with US warehouses full of Chinese products.

September exports should reflect the tariffs imposed in September, but not the upcoming December tariffs, which may also pre-load order demand for delivery before December.

December and January export figures, in theory, should show bigger declines.


rse, yes, one should most definitely always be at rounds. I'll go even further than that-- never leave anyone alone in a hospital. Any hospital.

(And it's not "service" you are getting --or want--it's care.
It is different, and makes a huge difference.
You want people who are caring for you, not servicing you.)


Good correction a'mom, but I used the term loosely as a synonym for "getting information".

I am not sure whether I said it here, but the docs and I believe her passing out saved her life. It uncovered underlying issues befoe they became intractable.

Very interesting article.

Some more more war movies:

The Longest Day
Lawrence of Arabia
Tom Sellack as Ike
Kirk Douglas in that WWI film
The Battle of Britain with the fighter scenes



Saint Skittles BioPic was an NBC Original Film. MFM’s been given 3 years to straighten up and fly right, but has instead chosen the form of their destructor, what I call DDI, or Democratically Distributed Information.

I’d get some more popcorn, if I were you.



Glad they’ve gotten ahead of the infections and your mom can go home.

HUH! WTF? Ah, the link didn't mention it was an amusement park in Ohio. Click-bait?

Link headline was "Coney Island to Shut Down All Amusement Park Rides"

Deliberate Fake News.


Doubling down on a Ben Rhoades Special does not seem wise, but who am I to judge: https://twitter.com/jimsciutto/status/1171226614866337792?s=21

NBC again, and even Steve McIntyre ain’t buying the preposterousness of the whole charade: https://twitter.com/climateaudit/status/1171251798520344583?s=21


This was NBC’s late afternoon lead, yesterday: https://twitter.com/contessabrewer/status/1171371463171084289?s=21

Washington Examiner agrees with you.



Here comes the Disney Team’s effort: https://twitter.com/w7voa/status/1171371345978056704?s=21


Obviously, the NYT editorial staff memo went out: https://twitter.com/jamesgleick/status/1171371160539471874?s=21


rse - Encouraging news about your mom. I agree and never leave a family member alone in the hospital. It is an exhausting but necessary duty.

Coney Island is on the Ohio River east of Cincy next to the River Downs race track. It may even be bigger than the one in NYC.

jim nj



Uh---that IN CINCINATTI thing in the headline keeps it from being clickbait, no? ;-) The only one I am aware of is in Ohio.



jim nj


You misunderstand, Cincinnati wasn't mentioned in the underlying link, only in the full link. For those of us in northern NJ there is only one Coney Island and it's located in NYC.

As I posted earlier the clickable link was,

Link headline was "Coney Island to Shut Down All Amusement Park Rides"

I had absolutely no idea that there was a Coney Island Amusement Park in Ohio.

Can you grok the difference between some pissant amusement park and a national icon.

Nathan's hot dog eating contest, a boardwalk, a large beach, amusement rides and all of it accessible by the subway.


jim_nj, don't cross the Hudson. Bears will eat you. ;)
