    Trump Organization Found Guilty in Tax Fraud Scheme Not much new under the sun today.Guilty on all 17 counts. America's crime family, pride of evangelicals and MAGA voters. Stealing and cheating from others the only difference is a court finally recognized it.

    After month of pent up anger I'm expecting a torrent of posts that I won't see except when they are quoted.That will go on for about 5 days till the next vacation. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    That’s literally what underestimating means. A gaffe like that from Biden and you would say it’s proof he has dementia.

    If you are jumping once a month, don't worry about it. kleggo's advice is solid, but is more of a 'long term' storage process. I take winters off these days (too old to jump in the cold) so my rig usually sits from maybe late October/early November until April or May. The only thing I really do is pull the pilot chute out of the BOC pouch to keep the spandex 'relaxed'. Rig sits in the gear bag, in the spare bedroom (kept at normal house temps). Standard I&R & repack the main in spring.

    The McCoy circus... Interview with McCoy's son Rick.. 3 hours.. Pro tip set to 1.5x speed Rick genuinely believes McCoy was Cooper, claims a family secret.. he is very emotional. He believes the parachute Gryder showed was Cooper's.. it wasn't.. He idolized his father and his grandmother. Claims jump log books as evidence,,, it isn't. Gives lots of background on Richard.. believes FBI murdered his father.. probably right. He reiterates the description of the chute Gryder found matches Cossey's description but has the details wrong. Haven't heard any evidence.. essentially points to Gryder's vids which we know are flawed. Claims aunt said Cooper's tie clip was 100% McCoys.. that wasn't what she said in FBI files. She said one similar. Calame and Rhodes lied about it. Lots of family trouble after Richard's death. Blame, kidnap and abuse. Conclusion, Rick is genuine, he idolized his father and believes he was Cooper. He has no evidence and points to Gryder's vid and the chute which does not match.. My impression is that he isn't fully aware of the Cooper case evidence and is repeating inaccuracies Gryder told him.. McCoy has an amazing story but he wasn't Cooper. Rick had a traumatic childhood and sounds sincere..

    Guardian: Trump did not disclose $19.8m loan while president, documents show The loan from Daewoo, a company with ties to North Korea, should have been reported in public financial disclosures I'm shocked!!!

    Then you'd think you'd know I was talking about "fucking" with people in a negative way that causes anger. Not "fucking" around with people as in bantering. Maybe if you read the whole thread - you wouldn't have got lost on that one, it was pretty fucking simple. Shame on you.

    Agree Agree Agree. I didn't think that I could agree with Joe and Jakee on the same issue on the page of posts. The more Putin attacks Ukrainian infrastructure the more I think the Baltic leaders are right and know Russia best. They suggest that arming Ukraine substantially better is the way to deter Putin. Because sanctions are not sharp enough to outsmart Putin. The Ukrainians have been smart and responsible in the use of NATO supplied weapons. But they are suffering large losses in the process. An exhausted capitulated Ukraine and a Putin win does nobody favors. He could win. What if he drafts a million men next spring? Decides Georgia, Belarus, Moldova should be next? Even before he finishes off Ukraine?

    ??? No-one's talking about invading Russia or has any intention of invading Russia. But so far with about 5 exceptions every bit of ordinance used in this war by both sides has exploded on Ukrainian territory, devastating Ukrainian land, infrastructure, culture and people. Russia acts as if those 5 or so exceptions are shocking, unprecedented and unjustified violations of its national sovereignty rather than natural consequences of starting a war on their own border. So far NATO and the EU have effectively played along with that narrative, as does talk about 'invading Russia'. There's no good reason why Ukraine should bear the entire brunt of the damage from this war, and no good reason why they should not be able to strike at the military equipment and infrastructure inside Russian border that is continuing to support and facilitate the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    Appeals court tells Michael Flynn he must testify in Fulton County's Trump investigation Funny how all these MAGAts constantly crowing about all the election fraud evidence they have...fight tooth and nail to resist talking about it in court.

    What bothers me is the way millions of voters supported him knowing full well that he is a con artist, liar and sexual predator, and I don't suppose this conviction will make a scrap of difference to them. A large subset of them will no doubt vote today for a guy who's been hit in the head several times too many in his former career, and is an incoherent ignoramus. I find that very disturbing.

    Definitive evidence of the chutes is the existence of the packing cards. Didn't Cossey's description say that one of his chutes was his bailout rig (that he wore when putting out static line students and not jumping himself) and the other was a sport rig? The sport rig would have the D-rings to attach a front reserve, but it would NOT have a packing card. Sport reserves and pilot emergency rigs are required to be packed by a rigger, and thus have the packing cards. Sport mains do not. The dummy reserve would not have one. The real reserve, that Cooper opened and cut lines from, would have one. Both of Hayden's rigs would have one. A sport main such as Cossey's, or the one Gryder showed, would not. So that there were TWO packing cards left with the remaining back rig would indicate that the back rig Cooper used was also a bailout rig (Hayden's) and NOT a sport rig, such as either Cossey's described rig or Gryder's. The only other possibility would be if that second card was from the real front reserve. But if that one is accounted for, and there were THREE packing cards on the plane, then that eliminates Gryder's rig.

    Agreed. McCoy had an interesting life story with a tragic ending. Had he just kept his head down and done his prison time, I think he would have been released early just like the other hijackers who were suffering from PTSD at the time, LaPoint and Heady.

    The FBI completely screwed up the chutes... but the container does not match Cossey's wrong description and it does not match Hayden's either.. In Gryder's vid there was a small green canopy attached to it.. If Dan does not turn it in to the FBI that is a tell...

    The chute is "actionable" evidence, so why not bring it to the FBI who said they would still review actionable evidence. Now, the next question is, given the confusion over the chutes, would the FBI even be in a position to accurately determine it's veracity or authenticity ?

    Russia, China and N. Korea are not transparent states. More so in the time of war. The idea that Russia is building new long range cruise missiles using western chips. While under sanctions. Should open many eyes. “There is no greater danger than underestimating your opponent.” From the author of the original treatise on war.

    What part of "you DON'T fuck with those you may be going into battle with" are you just not getting? Do you sit around in your mum's basement jacking off to porn every time you think you've scored some debate point on here? You're in each thread and got nothing to add but some snarky bullshit to everyone. You can piss off and consider yourself blocked. I don't deal with stupid shit.

    You should ask Maurizio di Palma. He should be able to set you up to rent one of the apartments immediately next to the landing area. If that's outside your budget, their are plenty of AirBnB options, as well as a nearby campground that plenty of jumpers stay at. I have never stayed there myself, but plenty of people do.

    I keep reading the same stories you are reading. But I am skeptical. There is a long history of news organizations being spoon fed false or overly positive information to keep public support in times of war. I don't completely call bullshit, but I definitely take stories about Russia's problems with a healthy grain of salt.

    It is clear Putin is a megalomaniac whose goal is to reunite the old Soviet Union. As soon as he captures Ukraine, every other former part of the old USSR would be on the table. And after that would be all the old satellite states of the USSR. Give Uraine everything they need to put a stop to it.

    This is it.. Crew transmits Cooper's initial demand.. "stairs to be lwrd after tkoff" Now, a little later Cooper wants Tina to manipulate stairs for him.. (that must mean lowering after take-off) crew tries to tell him instructions/operate stairs.. then crew suggests letting them lower partially and possibly locking in intermediate position. In this passage Cooper wants Tina to lower stairs and crew tries to convince him to allow them to lower part way.. This indicates crew first suggested stairs lowered for take-off.. they wanted to get Tina off of the plane. Cooper still wants Tina to lower stairs after takeoff.. (even after crew suggested lowering part way) note, here Cooper wants stairs in 1 degree,, that might mean unlocked. Flight Ops advices Crew cannot takeoff with door down. (It was the crew that previously suggested it) This all takes place before the Reno negotiations... Later, after Reno negotiation Cooper agrees to stairs full uprite position.. (this indicates locked position) Fact, Cooper's initial demand was stairs lowered after take-off. Fact, while Cooper wanted Tina to manipulate the stairs it was the crew that first suggested lowering/locking part way. It appears Cooper wanted the stairs unlocked, not fully extended for take-off.. but eventually accepted fully up and locked. There may have been some communication error between the crew, ground and Cooper.. Tina was probably the intermediary between Cooper and the crew. Cooper always wanted Tina/stew to lower the stairs (after take-off).. it is also indicated that he also wanted the stairs unlocked/open/1 degree.. IMO, he wanted them unlocked, not lowered for take-off (the crew suggested that) and the stew to lower after take-off.

    Hi folks, Now, this is interesting: Trump came in third place with 14.6 percent, nearly 2 points below [ Liz ] Cheney and nearly 10 points behind [ DeSantis] Would it not be the final irony if Liz Cheney were to get the GOP nod for POTUS?

    American Rescue Plan Act. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Remember when trump promised this? With zero effort to achieve it? A bipartisan passed bill. Inflation Reduction Act. Chips and Science Act. Again bipartisan. Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. Again bipartisan. Sgt. 1st Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics, or PACT, Act. A bipartisan passed bill Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, and about a dozen more. Its just too bad that one tribe spends so much time in the warrens watching FOX that they don't see how he protects Americans.

    So, now you echo the infamous Jefferson quote. One problem. He never said that. (you're free to contact the Thomas Jefferson Foundation to confirm - they have nothing that states he said that). It was written by John Barnhill in 1914. The way the Constitution protects against tyranny is Separation of Powers. “Liberty requires that the three great departments of power should be separate and distinct.” ~James Madison. You've really got to stop using YouTube, Rumbl, Breitbart and other supposed media outlets to make your arguments and try picking up a book. Or two, or three.
