The lockdown for Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi has been lifted, according to Corpus Christi police officers assisting at the base. An armed suspect reported on the base caused a lockdown to be issued at around 7:40 a.m. Public Affairs Officer Francoise “Fifi” Kieschnick said the suspect was reported to be near building 8 on the base. That building remains on lockdown, according to employees at the base. (Tweet) In a Facebook post, base officials posted a suspect was in custody as of 7:47 a.m. Texas A&M Univeristy-Corpus Christi notified students and faculty via a Code Blue alert that base personnel have the situation contained.

Fifi? Has our military come to this? No wonder terrorists have infiltrated it.

This was my last duty station, NAS CC. Was shocked to see the lack of security several years ago. We could never get on the base nor could we leave the base without stopping by the Marine guard.

Another USN air base. Used to be more pilot training going on at nearby Beeville, but Chase Field closed some time back. Maybe the training was pulled back to NAS Corpus. I've been out of the naval aviator training loop for a while now.

Can't be. Mil bases are gun-free zones.

Fifi doesn't bring to mind terrorist to me. I think of French women or Poodles. Mohammed is a name to be concerned about, and I wonder why (I know: money) we train people who want to exterminate us. I read where the Navy pilots, who teach the students, are asking permission to be armed. The Navy allows these same pilots, who are experienced and have been allowed to take an aircraft loaded with weapons into the air, to be trusted not to bomb or shoot up the base, or the local town. Carrying a firearm is nothing compared to that.

#5 nails it. My question for every perfumed high command officer who thinks unarmed service men and women is a good idea, you trust these people to deliver deadly weapons that can kill millions in an enemy city, but they can't be trusted with a pistol on base? Your screening either works or it does not and right now YOU fail as being able to carry out your mission. I miss the world where commercial pilots carried a .38 revolver in their flight kits as part of their normal day. Now we are PC insane and stupid at the same time.

The Trump administration has ruled that gun shops are considered “essential” businesses that should remain open as other businesses are closed to try to stop the spread of coronavirus. Gun control groups are balking, calling it a policy that puts profits over public health after intense lobbying by the firearms industry. (Snip) After days of lobbying by the National Rifle Association, the National Shooting Sports Foundation and other gun groups, the Department of Homeland Security this past weekend issued an advisory declaring that firearms dealers should be considered essential services — just like grocery stores, pharmacies and hospitals — and allowed to remain open.

Washington DC - A Washington-based lawyer Larry Klayman has filed a USD 20 trillion lawsuit against China for the “creation and the release of the novel coronavirus” that has infected more than 334,000 people globally.

Italian engineers are making ventilators out of diving masks and fitting them with 3D-printed respiratory valves in an inventive plan to keep hospitals supplied at the height of the coronavirus crisis. A Brescia-based startup firm has offered the contraptions for free to local hospitals in the region of Lombardy which is at the centre of Europe's worst virus outbreak. The crucial part of the equipment is the 3D-printed 'Venturi valve', a device named after 18th-century physicist Giovanni Battista Venturi which connects the mask to an oxygen tube. The company is gearing up to make 100 of the chess piece-like valves per day and hand them out to medics

In light of the nursing home disaster in New York, what kind of a ghoul would take that as an example to emulate instead of a baleful death warning to avoid, and then order contagious COVID-19 patients into her state's nursing homes? Only Michigan's hard-faced Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the ambitious Democrat who banned sales of garden seeds to Michiganders, saying she's doing it in the name of keeping everyone "safe." "Safe" to Whitmer is seeding the nursing homes with COVID-19 patients, supposedly as a means of lightening the loads of hospitals. Too bad if Granny

The media, computer modelers, epidemiologists, and the censors keeping dissenting views off of social media have succeeded in terrifying much of the political class and the American public into accepting far-reaching suspensions of civil liberties in the name of suppressing the spread of a Covid-19, a highly communicable flu strain whose lethality principally affects the elderly and those with comorbidities. At the moment it is an open question whether the lockdown ”cure” will end up being more lethal than the disease. Last week, American Thinker took some flak, including from some conservatives for publishing Peter Barry Chowka’s warning, “Mandatory coronavirus vaccination looming on the horizon.”

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New data from Johns Hopkins University shows that the Navajo Nation is now leading the nation in COVID-19 cases per capita. According to the data, the Navajo Nation has 2,304 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people. In comparison, New York has a rate of 1,806 per 100,000. New Jersey follows at 1,668 cases per 100,000. Much of the Navajo Nation lacks water and electrical utilities. At a time when disinfecting and hyper sanitation is critical to fight the virus, many homes don’t even have the basic infrastructure of running water.

They've been through riots, protests, and natural disasters—but America's colleges have never seen anything like the financial meltdown the coronavirus is about to bring to their campuses. The rising wave of health fears, added costs, and vanishing tuition payments could crush small colleges, many of which were already hanging by a financial thread. Those that can weather the crisis—including big-name universities with billions in their bank accounts—in turn stand to gain big from the fallout. The emptying out of schools and the mass transition to distance learning has already been "the largest all-sector hit that we've ever seen," Jim Hundrieser, a vice president with the National Association
