Agree but they weren’t on final approach.
I didn’t say they were on final approach.  But they were talking to RDU Approach, and were on the heading of 050, and RDU has a 05L and 05R. I think it’s fair to assume they were on either an approach or a straight in visual, even if they were 10+ miles out and probably descending.

Thanks!  I had found that online at an unverified source but it looks real from that source.  Sounded real anyway.  So the initial media reports about “jumped” were correct, surprisingly.  Or at least that’s what the pilot claims.  I don’t happen to believe he pushed him out and lied about it, but who knows?
It would take a great deal of trust in your autopilot to leave your pilot’s seat and throw a copilot overboard while on final approach into an airport.

Occam’s Razor says that is not likely.

While technically true there is a bit more to it than the POTUS just "deciding" the material is no longer classified.  And some of it had the highest level of classification.  Don't worry yourselves, this will go no where.  Trump will be covered by his toadies friends in Congress.  His followers are like you all, they truly don't care what he does.
And you truly don’t care about facts whatsoever.  The President’s sole authority to declassify a document rests in his power as Commander in Chief. There is no fourth branch of government that holds power over the Executive over classified information.   There is no statute or bureaucratic rule that holds power over the President’s ability to declassify anything at any time.

If the president wants to declassify “the highest level of classification,” all he has to do is say something is declassified. There is no “process” he must go through to declassify something. Those rules apply to anyone else in government or otherwise, but cannot apply to the President due to the Constitution.

I imagine the faculty lounge floor is quite slippery with the drool of other Marxist faculty hoping to see Trump frog walked into prison. Too bad you’ve all been mislead. Maybe they could talk to some C-law faculty in the Law School for clarification.

Spin Zone / Re: biden Regime Abolishes ICE Labor Union
« on: August 14, 2022, 05:36:22 PM »
The far-too-cozy relationship between american federation of government employees and dhs, proved to be the shit hole many expected, as the labor union that represents the single largest group of whistleblowers has been abolished - clearly an attempt to silence any voice of truth and dissent.
The senile imposter and his regime of liars can't stand free speech, or the expectation that the biden shit hole will act legally.

The Biden administration delivered a death sentence Thursday to the labor organization that represents thousands of employees at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Federal Labor Relations Authority’s decision erases the National ICE Council and leaves its 7,600 members, mostly deportation officers, without a collective bargaining agreement or union representation, members said.

The move also dents a prominent critic of both the administration and the American Federation of Government Employees, the umbrella union that included the ICE Council.

“DHS and AFGE leadership both wanted desperately to silence ICE Council whistleblowers. Without a union, it’s doubtful those whistleblowers will have jobs much longer.”
The Marxists aren’t even hiding their intentions any more. Democrats’ support of unions has always had ZERO to do with workers rights. It’s has EVERYTHING to do with political donations to a single politician party.

Rusty & Student Pilots / Re: Memories from primary training
« on: August 14, 2022, 04:26:30 PM »
I did my private pilot training at Monroe, NC (KEQY) but has to fly to Rowan County airport (KRUQ) for my checkride.

It was an unusually cold morning on Dec. 7, 2005, so the plane (an OMF Symphony, N380MF) climbed like never before. The problem was it was a 38nm trip underneath Charlotte’ Class Bravo airspace and through the Class Delta airspace of Concord Airport. I believe I briefly busted the Bravo airspace of 3,600’, and was certain I would get a call from someone about that. Perfect way to start a checkride thinking I broke the Bravo airspace. Smdh.

It was a nerve wracking oral exam - so much that the examiner stopped the exam to show me his handmade Turkey calls, obviously to settle me down and get me to relax.

So I completed the oral, and completed the flying portion, and got the Temporary Airman’s Certificate!!! 

As I left, I was sitting in the Symphony and called my wife and instructor (in that order) to tell them I passed.

I was getting ready to start up the Symphony and fly back to Monroe when two Sheriff’s deputies came up to the plane. They were wearing black flight suits and carrying weapons. One came up to the door and said “We’re conducting a ramp check.” 

I think they could tell by my face, after the stress and then relief of passing my checkride, that I was in NO MOOD for the stress of a ramp check. So the first deputy said “Just kidding. We haven’t seen this kind of plane before, can you show it to us?”  I almost shit my pants.  I told them I literally just passed my checkride, and they knew it as they heard it from my DPE a few minutes before. So we all had a good laugh about that.

Apparently, Rowan County airport was the home to the county’s helicopter fleet. Thus the black flight suits.

I think the 38nm flight back to Monroe was the best flight of my 550 hours.

Thanks, I am concluding I can do nothing about it except wait.  But I am impatient.
Lucifer is correct. The same thing happened about 6 months ago or so. It was back on in a couple of days.

Is there a specific accident/incident that you are concerned about?  Richard McSpadden’s AOPA Air Safety Institute has started getting much more current information about incidents which I find very helpful.

Full disclosure:  Richard was my Navion transition instructor and is also one of the nicest guys in the world. I’m proud to have his signature in my logbook.

Is it Lucifer who always says the flak is heaviest over the target?  This is the heaviest flak yet.  MAGA is growing and they’re about to lose the midterms and Trump looks very good for 2024.  They can’t fix the economy.  They won’t fix the gas prices.  They’re too stuck up they’re own asses to understand how to fix these things even if they wanted to which they don’t because they’re doggedly pursuing the idea of tearing down the country so they can implement the Great Reset.  On some level they realize that bad economy and inflation will lose them elections.  So they try to rig the elections and they flood the media with propaganda claiming the economy is good.

Don’t let it fluster you.
^^^^Very well stated, Rush.

I've taken the liberty of copying and pasting your last two paragraphs to a couple of other places on the net. I hope you don't mind.
Not alt all. Spread the truth.

Is there, honestly, any turning back now?  Let's say Trump gets re-elected in 2024, how is he going to clean this up?
“We could fight ‘em with conventional weapons.  But that could take years and cost millions of lives.”

In the event Mike comes back with yet another pants-on-fire claim that the documents were “highly classified” and thus it was a security breach to take them, I’ll leave him this.

Article II of the Constitution vests absolute authority as Commander in Chief.  In the 1988 Supreme Court ruling in Department of Navy v. Egan, the court wrote “His [the President’s] authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security…flows primarily from this Constitutional investment of power in the President, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant.” 

In other words, the president has the final authority to classify or declassify documents at will. There is no fourth branch of government that can exercise authority over the President on intelligence matters. The intelligence agencies all fall under the Executive Branch. And Congress cannot exercise authority over the Executive if the President’s authority originates out of the Constitution.

The Hot Air Balloon....

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The woman below replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You’re between 59 and 60 degrees north latitude and between 107 and 108 degrees west longitude.”

“You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist.

“I am,” replied the woman, “how did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I’ve no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is that I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help at all. If anything, you’ve delayed my trip.”

The woman below responded, “You must be a politician.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know?”

“Well,” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you’ve no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is, you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault.
I’ve heard this identical joke, except that the balloonist was a woman, and the engineer on the ground was a man.

Methinks lucifer is becoming a squishy feminist. 

Here’s an interview by Bill O’Reilly with Trump’s personal lawyer, who was denied access to the premises by the FBI.

Sorry it’s from Facebook, but maybe it’s out there in some other platform that everyone can watch.

After some documents were taken from Trump's residence there was at least one witness who claimed there was more yet to be uncovered, at least that's been reported.  How they discovered that said documents were potentially classified materials involving nuclear weapons I don't know.  But the DOJ can't move without actionable intelligence, which it appears they got. They didn't have that 19 months ago.  Try learning a little about how your government works.

I doubt strongly that the FBI would take such a step without dotting their i's and crossing their t's, they are aware of the ramifications. Garland himself has asked that the warrant be unsealed.

What will be of far more critical interest is whether they actually found what they were looking for.
Educate yourself. Did your sources tell you that the Steele Russian Dossier that was used by the FISA court to issue FISA warrants, and is leaked to a firm used by the DNC and Hillary’s campaign?

Now tell me again the fairy tale as to how the DOJ can’t move without actionable intelligence.

Your naïveté is astounding.

Fair point.  I will amend my statement to say taking any illegal street drug is a choice.  But demonizing fentanyl is no more a solution than demonizing guns as the cause of gun deaths.  All it does is make it harder for everyone else to get it legally when they need it.  There’s nothing dangerous about fentanyl at all if you use it correctly. 

It’s just like making getting guns more difficult to get.  The criminal users still get them and use them and the law abiding are restricted.  You can’t stop the manufacture of illegal drugs any more than you can stop “ghost guns”.  But to try only brings more tyranny to the law abiding.  See my thread about how hard it was to get tramadol for my mother.

We need to solve the reason kids become addicts in the first place.  In the meantime make all drugs legal so that the manufacture is aboveboard and safe.  That’s what will stop the unintentional overdoses.

Why are kids resorting to drugs?  I think because nature intends teenagers to begin functioning as adults but our society thwarts them.  Instead of a Wisconsin boy being forced to sit in high school learning about white privilege and how he is to be blamed for all of society’s problems, a 14 year old should be apprenticing and learning a trade.  By 16 he should be earning money.  But we keep them in school til 18, all the while telling them their perfectly normal sex drive is something to be ashamed of and any overture to a girl is sexist misogyny at best and criminal harassment at worst, and then we require them to go to college for four years, never beginning to function in any self sufficient way until well into their 20s.  To boot, we tell them to major in useless crap so they graduate in debt and flipping burgers with their degree in “art theory for the gender fluid”.  This is what boys are being told to look forward to, instead of nurturing their natural drive to work with their hands, be productive and start developing their identity as future provider and protector to a nice female.  Don’t dare hope for that!  Women don’t want or need you anymore, they’ll get their own career thankyouverymuch and if you do manage to ever have sex with one and she gets pregnant and doesn’t suck it into a sink you can look forward to financial ruin, if you ever manage to get any finances to start with.

Are we really wondering why kids are hopeless these days?  Half the time they’ve already been made addicts to ADHD drugs by the time they’re in their teens.  And the girls, what girls dream about most is babies, it’s a biological urge, but THAT is squashed real fast. Don’t you dare want a man and a family.  That’s patriarchal oppression.  Men are toxic, to be avoided at all costs.  Unless of course you discover that you yourself are in fact male, and you need to search on the internet how to find a clinic that will start you on hormones and schedule the surgical removal of your budding titties. But whatever you do, do NOT imagine yourself a stay at home mom raising babies, that’s the quintessential definition of evil.

By early teen years both girls and boys are designed by nature to have these drives - for males to work and provide for, for the reward of sex, and females to be protected by someone strong, and snuggle little babies - but today’s culture COMPLETELY denies teens validation of these basic evolutionary instincts. And we wonder why they come apart at the seams and get into drugs.

Stop demonizing an inanimate substance as if it can jump into your veins without your assistance and instead address all the causes of these hopelessly confused and misguided kids resorting to escaping to street drugs.
Do t get me started on what we are doing to our boys and girls. You hit on all my points. Boys are being medicated because they are acting like boys. My brother was a Boy Scout Leader for I think 12 years, and at all times he said at least half the troops’s boys were medicated, and as scout leader HE had to administer them. Madness!  Some parents look at scouting as a weekend off from having to deal with their autistic son, so my brother then had to deal with their autistic son.

We have feminized boys almost to the point of no return. I see football and most sports disappearing in the next 20 years, because boys are either too afraid or too disinterested to participate or push themselves.

Agree although I’m not on board with the fentanyl “emergency”.  It’s as easy to avoid as avoiding anal sex, it’s a choice.  I wish the right would stop using opioids for fear mongering about the border.  They SHOULD use gang violence and sex trafficking.  Real victims.  Sorry, if you use fentanyl illegally I have trouble feeling sorry for you.

Absolutely right about monkeypox.  It is being used as a political weapon.  Just watch, they’ll drop monkeypox as soon as the first case of this new Chinese virus hits the U.S.  Then we will get “two weeks to flatten the curve” (and universal mail in ballots mwa haha) all over again.
I strongly disagree.  Fentanyl is cheap to manufacture, but so strong it is being laced into other drugs and sold on the street to make the other drugs more powerful and cheaper to produce. They are also manufactured to look like pain relievers like Oxycodone or stimulants like Adderall.

Any street drug can be laced with this stuff. That’s why so many Wisconsin KIDS are dying from fentanyl.  They weren’t knowingly taking fentanyl, but OD’d from it.
