Let me guess: no guns were allowed on the base and shockingly enough someone diidn't pay attention to that.

This is where a lot of our naval aviators are trained. What in the hell has gone wrong with the Navy? Looks like it is good that the old SecNav is gone. Hope the new SecNav can start to sort this mess out.

Just heard on the radio that the shooter was a member of the Saudi military, here for training. Why are we allowing this?

Saudi student. A relative was a USN aviator and worked for a few years as a Navy flight instructor. Then it was Iranian students. The reports are that the students were lazy, uninterested, coming from wealthy families, used to being pampered and given everything. In one case, after repeated problems with an Iranian student, and the student clearly just ignoring the instructions, this instructor stood up in the back seat, reached forward and clouted the student on the head with a knee board, an aluminum clipboard sort of assembly which is strapped to a thigh to hold notes and paper, etc. The student, of course had on a crash helmet, so no injury, but the student focused better for the rest of that hop. Worthless. Let them teach each other to fly, and away from our shores.

#4, as for allowing this, it is policy that the Saudis are opposing the Persians and we sell them aircraft, and bundled is the pilot training. So, they paid for it, hopefully PLENTY. Not a new thing. And I have met French pilots at a USN winging ceremony for Naval Aviators. I took the occasion to thank them for Admiral De Grasse, Gen. Rochambeau and Gen Lafayette's criticlal assistance during our "time of need". But training Muslims is starting to be a really questionable idea. In the end, they are all our enemies, as long as the adhere to the Koran.

Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders are taking a victory lap after Amazon.com Inc. and other technology giants leased millions of square feet of office space in New York City -- without the billions of dollars in government support that Amazon tried to negotiate earlier this year.

The Supreme Court denied the Trump administration’s request to override a district court ruling halting federal executions that were scheduled for this week.

Circuit and, if necessary, the Supreme Court. The Department of Justice is committed to upholding the rule of law and to carrying forward sentences imposed by our justice system,” said Kerri Kupec, the spokesperson for the Justice Department.

The U.S. military believes the unarmed drone that went missing over the Libyan capital last month was actually shot down by Russian air defenses. The U.S. Africa Command is demanding the return of the aircraft's wreckage, which had been part of an operation conducted in Libya to assess the area's security and monitor for violent extremist activity. The command didn't give a reason for the drone loss after the Nov. 21 incident, but they had been investigating, Reuters reported. Army General Stephen Townsend told the outlet he believed Russia's air defense operators at the time "didn't know it was a U.S. remotely piloted aircraft when they fired on it."

Uranium and other contaminants fell into the Detroit River last month when a site where nuclear material was created during the 1940s and 1950s partially collapsed, according to the Detroit Free Press. Known as the Detroit Dock, the area gave way before Thanksgiving weekend, spilling chemicals upstream from a section of the river from which Detroit gets drinking water. Michigan's Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) issued a statement saying they did not believe there was any danger. "EGLE is aware that the site was previously used to process uranium and there is no evidence to suggest that there is a current radiological risk," the statement said.

In the spring and fall migration seasons each year, billions of birds wind through the central U.S. as they soar the skies between Latin America and Canada. For many, the journey is deadly. Recent research from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in New York estimates that a whopping 600 million birds in the U.S. die every year after crashing into tall buildings. And for traveling birds, Chicago — where a skyline of glass and steel stretches across a heavily trafficked migration route — may be the most perilous of all U.S. cities.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), high Chancellor of the Trump impeachment effort, might be getting away with murder. The impeachment circus that has engulfed D.C. has overshadowed the House Intelligence Committee chair’s egregious abuse of power. He executed a secret subpoenas adventure of phone records of prominent Republicans. He got their phone records and published them in the committee’s 300-page impeachment report. Now, the report is a work of fiction. Schiff is a liar, and nothing from House Democrats on this whole fiasco should be believed.

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.
