  2. https://www.defenseone.com/business/2020/10/army-halts-apache-deliveries-after-boeing-finds-improper-record-keeping-helicopter-factory/169332/ "The U.S. Army has stopped accepting Apache helicopters from Boeing after the company found that an employee kept “improper” records concerning parts installed on the aircraft. It’s the latest quality-control issue to bedevil America’s largest planemaker, which is trying to shift its company’s culture and repair its public image after two deadly airliner crashes and a production line that left tools and trash inside new tanker aircraft. “At this time the Army is still conducting a comprehensive review of a number of Boeing processes, production, and manufacturing plans for critical safety items applicable to all AH-64E aircraft production,” Lt. Col. Brandon Kelley, an Army spokesman, said in an emailed statement. When it learned of “improper record keeping” at its AH-64 Apache factor in Mesa, Arizona, Boeing “immediately notified the Army,” Steve Parker, vice president and general manager of Boeing Vertical Lift, said in a statement provided by a company spokesman. “Boeing and the government are jointly reviewing our Mesa quality management processes and procedures,” Parker said. “Flight operations and deliveries will resume when Boeing and the Army are satisfied this issue has been resolved and appropriate corrective action plans have been implemented.”

"Giuliani: Computer Shop Owner Who Found Hunter Biden’s Emails Said He Was ‘Really Afraid’ " https://www.redstate.com/jeffc/2020/10/18/giuliani-computer-shop-owner-who-found-hunter-biden’s-emails-said-he-was-‘really-afraid’/ "During an appearance on Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Giuliani told host Mark Levin that John Paul Mac Isaac, the computer shop owner who had Biden’s laptop told the FBI that he was “really afraid because the Bidens are very powerful around here.” The former New York City mayor explained that Hunter Biden had left his laptop at a computer repair shop in Delaware. “He may very well have forgotten where he left it for a while because the gentleman who got it said he was drunk for the entire time that he dealt with him, and he dealt with him twice.” Biden’s business relationship with Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, came under scrutiny when House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s July 2019 request that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is Hunter’s father. “The gentleman, after he saw a lot of these things in the newspapers, got concerned that he had some kind of illegal property because of all these allegations that were being made back and forth about the Bidens,” Giuliani said. “So he looked at the hard drive, and when he looked at the hard drive, he was very concerned with what he saw." Right. He probably didn't want to be an 'unexplained suicide' all-of-a-sudden.
  4. https://www.redstate.com/nick-arama/2020/10/18/joe-biden-is-ducking-those-scandal-questions-he-just-announced-hes-going-into-hiding/ "Trump has been going all-in in the last weeks before the election, campaigning everywhere. On Saturday, he literally was in three battleground states campaigning, all in one day. Not so for Joe Biden. Not only did the Biden team not reach out to people on the ground for months, but Joe Biden hid in his basement. Then when he finally started getting out there, he frequently called a “lid” early in the day. Calling a lid means the campaign is done with official activities or any media activities for the day. More recently, they’ve only been reaching out to people in person on the ground for about the last week or so. Now that the allegations about him and his son have burgeoned into a full-blown scandal, suddenly not only is Biden calling a lid for the day early in the morning, Biden is now saying today to not expect to hear from him for most of the rest of the week until the debate on October 22, using the excuse that he’s “debate prepping.” "Everyone thinks he’s going into hiding to avoid questions on the scandal. He’s literally going to hide out and hope to scoot through down the final stretch without responding on the issue and hope he gets in."

  6. https://www.westernjournal.com/defense-department-rep-amazed-1-shot-new-weapon-upgrade-expecting-order-us/ "A new weapon sight soon could make its way to the U.S. armed forces, and a Department of Defense representative’s reaction to the technology means it could be a game-changer for troops. The official was introduced to the sight during SHOT Show, a firearms convention in January that lured industry innovators, enthusiasts and government officials from around the world. The convention, held in Las Vegas, reportedly is where the DOD representative first met with Matbock, the Virginia Beach company behind the design." "According to The Virginian-Pilot, Matbock founders Sean Matson and Zach Steinbock were working at the convention when they met a program manager from the Department of Defense’s Unified Combatant Command. The two founders, both former Navy SEALs, had a unique weapon sight that had been in development for years." "The Acquire Read Deploy Sight, as the weapon upgrade is known, is designed to fit modern grenade launchers such as the MK19 or M320. When it is fed information about the weapons system and ammunition, the sight will display the angle and distance the round will travel. For the traditionally difficult-to-aim-precisely explosive rounds, the ARD Sight offers users a better alternative to analog leaf sights." "Although the Acquire Read Deploy Sight has yet to see real field use, positive early impressions mean it could be a powerful upgrade for troops armed with the device."
  7. https://www.westernjournal.com/volunteer-firefighter-incredible-saves-life-little-girl-trapped-burning-home/ “Meet Elijah Hale,” the company posted shortly after the rescue. “Member of the Irishtown Fire Company, and Alpha Fire Company #1 of Littlestown. Elijah came upon tonight’s house fire on Bender Road, accessed a ladder on the property, throwing it to the second floor, rescuing a trapped resident. “Our company is proud of his quick thinking, and willingness to take action without the benefit of PPE or other fire personnel on scene. His quick action undoubtedly saved a life." "Locals commented on the initial posts as well as the follow-ups, highlighting their personal gratitude and knowledge of the man’s character. “Couldn’t be more proud of my son,” Terri Hale wrote. “Elijah, that little girl was my niece!” wrote Lindsae Kimm. “I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of my heart!!!! God bless you.” The Irishtown Fire Company posted a follow-up as well, talking about how generous a member of the community Hale is, and how he’s done a lot to help local people and animals in need. The company also noted that he didn’t want the recognition, but that has only convinced people more that he truly deserves the title “hero.”

"NYPD woes mount: Patrol chief's sudden retirement part of 'troubling' exodus" https://www.foxnews.com/us/shakeup-nypd-new-york-city-police-chief-retirement-department-departures "But sources first told the New York Post and later confirmed to Fox News, that Pichardo’s decision to retire was spurred in part by de Blasio’s micromanaging. “I think he knew better to call Shea and beat him up, so ... he called Pichardo instead, and he had enough,” a law enforcement source told Fox News. “I believe that it was a steady drumbeat” that got “louder and louder,” until “it ultimately led to” his retirement, the source said."
  9. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/rick-moran/2020/10/16/at-least-118-seattle-police-officers-have-quit-or-separated-from-the-department-this-year-n1063726 "The mass exodus of officers started in May with 10 separations, followed by 16 in June, 10 in July, and 14 in August. In September, that number jumped to 39. So far in October, there have been eight separations according to a source, though this is not in the mayor’s report. Police Chief Carmen Best, who resigned this year, is included in the statistics. Not all of these monthly numbers directly match a partial list of data circulated internally within the SPD or mayor’s office. They have, however, been confirmed by two police sources and match the total number of separations outlined in the mayor’s forthcoming report. The union president wasn’t kidding when he told residents that their “911 call for help will go unanswered for a significant amount of time.” Response times to serious, in-progress crimes have gone up to 9 minutes in some precincts from July through September. The reason is simply a matter of numbers. The mayor’s office believes the number of deployable staff could drop to 1,072 officers if the trends and hiring freeze continues, along with the council’s vote to fire 70 officers. But these numbers don’t tell the whole picture. Sources reveal that many officers are using sick time at higher than normal rates. Many of them are looking for other jobs in different agencies. When they leave, some officers fear the separations could hit 200. While the number of officers has dropped to 1990 levels, the population of the city has increased by 44 percent. Year-over-year murders have increased by a whopping 60 percent. The radicals are doing a great job “reimagining police,” making Seattle a hell-hole with a horrific murder rate. Maybe this had something to do with the exodus." Can you blame them? Only a chump would allow themselves to be used as a target, or a punching-bag. Add-in, they have no support whatsoever; from their city government!
  10. https://freebeacon.com/national-security/two-senior-al-qaeda-operatives-reportedly-killed-in-drone-strike/ "Two senior al Qaeda operatives were reportedly killed in an American drone strike in Syria’s Idlib Governorate on Thursday. Though the strike has yet to be confirmed by the Department of Defense’s Central Command, regional experts have circulated images and information indicating that the two operatives were killed. The two operatives, Abu Dhar al-Masri and Abu Yusuf al-Maghrebi, were both defectors from Huras al-Din, an insurgent group active in Syria. A 2019 drone strike was said to have killed key members of Huras al-Din, including Abu Dhar, but the new strike’s confirmation would dispel those rumors. While al Qaeda's numbers have dwindled significantly in recent years—the State Department estimates al Qaeda’s contingent in Afghanistan is below 200 members—it is also the case that the terrorist group still cooperates with the more-established insurgency of the Taliban."
  11. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/defund-police-movement-drives-police-to-back-president-trump "The progressive "defund the police" movement is driving members of law enforcement nationwide to back President Trump on Election Day. To endorse the president, police unions and associations are bucking the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations or AFL-CIO, according to a new report in The Washington Times. They are also mobilizing in support of the incumbent, which could help Trump in tightly contested battleground states." Although the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association has endorsed state and regional candidates for 40 years, this year was the first federal endorsement in nearly two decades. “Because of this particular election process with ‘defund the police,’ we decided to get involved in this presidential election,” explained the association’s executive director, John Midgette. While Democratic challenger Joe Biden has presented himself as a moderate candidate and previously claimed he would not defund police departments, the connection Biden had with law enforcement during more than four decades in Washington reportedly appears to be weakening following protests after the death of George Floyd, a Black man who perished while being detained by police. In 1994, Biden backed a crime bill that included grant money to help communities hire 100,000 more police officers and he donated $26,000 in leftover campaign funds to build a memorial for fallen Delaware law enforcement in 2009. Biden has since sought to distance himself from the 1994 legislation and called for dramatic overhauls to policing on the campaign trail."

In a video posted on Friday, Bongino said the doctors confirmed he has cancer, specifically Hodgkin's lymphoma. "But it is treatable, feel like I owe you an update. Gonna leave it there, nothing to be depressed about, there's a treatment plan. As I've always said, I mean it, everybody's got their obstacles. This is just another one for me and Paula," he said.

If not, please continue — although I can’t make any promises about how you’ll feel by the end — particularly if you watch the video. Combs began the lecture by acknowledging that “I am on traditional Dakota land.” She also gave a shoutout to “George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and all of the other lives stolen from families and communities and our world due to police brutality and state-sanctioned violence.” (You can still bail, you know.) She then asked attendees: “What comes to mind when you hear the term ‘white supremacy?’” Combs already “knew” the answer, of course. As part of her answer, she displayed a slide titled “The face of white supremacy.” On the slide were pictures of Ku Klux Klan members as well as white nationalists in Charlottesville. She then took those images off and put a picture of her own face on the screen. Ooh, clever. See what she did, there? [Eye-roll emoji.] “Stepping into that tension and accepting my connection to white supremacy,” she said, “has been a freedom of sorts to show up in better alignment with my values and do the work for the rest of my life.” Absolutely sickening! I wonder if this Combs person would also drop-to-her-knees in guilty, white atonement; and deliver a courtesy-honk?
  14. https://americanmilitarynews.com/2020/10/chinas-xi-jinping-tells-troops-to-focus-on-preparing-for-war/ "Chinese leader Xi Jinping called on Chinese troops to “put all (their) minds and energy on preparing for war” during a visit to a military base in the southern province of Guangdong on Tuesday. According to a translation of Xi’s remarks, reported by the Chinese state-run Xinhua news agency, Xi told People’s Liberation Army Marine Corps troops stationed in Chaozhou City to “maintain a state of high alert.”The Chinese news agency also reported Xi called on the troops to increasingly train for actual combat capabilities. “It is necessary to insist on leading training by combat, strengthening task traction, strengthening targeted and confrontational training, and beating hard and training the troops. It is necessary to promote innovations in combat theory, training models, and task organization to improve training levels and actual combat capabilities,” Xinhua wrote of Xi’s remarks. Xi also reportedly called on the troops to be “absolutely loyal, absolutely pure, and absolutely reliable.” He also called on the PLA’s Marine Corps to “cultivate a fighting spirit that is not afraid of hardship and death, and bring the troops to life.” Xi’s remarks come amid increased tensions between the U.S. and China. China has increasingly sought to exercise control over the South China Sea and has made increased gestures against Taiwan. Chinese warplanes have flown over Taiwan’s airspace in recent weeks, including in September as U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar became the highest-level US official to visit Taiwan in decades. China also planned amphibious landing drills near Taiwan-held territory over the summer."
  15. https://www.wisconsinrightnow.com/2020/10/14/joshua-ziminski-alex-blaine/ "The man who allegedly fired the first shot behind Kyle Rittenhouse just prior to the fatal shooting in Kenosha last August has been charged. Joshua Ziminski, 35, was charged on Oct. 9 with disorderly conduct by use of a dangerous weapon for firing a gun into the air as Rittenhouse was pursued by Joseph Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse would shoot Rosenbaum seconds later. The charges could give Rittenhouse’s defense attorneys a chance to argue that their client may have thought he was being fired upon when he opened fire at Rosenbaum, as Ziminski allegedly fired a gun in the air seconds before Rittenhouse opened fire. Video shows Ziminski standing behind Rosenbaum at the time. Court records show he has a lengthy criminal history in Wisconsin for carrying a concealed weapon and other offenses. He had an open domestic abuse criminal case at the time of the Rittenhouse shooting. Joshua Ziminski also went by the online pseudonym of Alex Blaine." "According to online court records, Ziminski had an open misdemeanor criminal case for alleged domestic abuse battery and disorderly conduct at the time of the Rittenhouse shooting. There was a warrant for his arrest for some time that was cancelled in August. The charges are pending. In 2016, he was convicted of misdemeanor hit and run property damage. He was cited in 2014 for carrying a concealed weapon. In 2011, he was charged with disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property as a repeater, but the charges were dismissed and read-in. In 2010, he was charged with violating a harassment order as a repeater, a charge also dismissed but read-in. He was convicted on another charge of misdemeanor violating a harassment order, repeater. He was convicted in 2010 of yet another charge of violating a harassment order and disorderly conduct. In 2007, he was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and bail jumping. In 2006, he was convicted of disorderly conduct while armed. He was convicted of bail jumping in a separate case. In 2006, he was convicted of yet another carrying a concealed weapon charge. In 2005, he was convicted of marijuana possession. In 2002, he was charged with felony robbery with use of force but it was dismissed and he was only convicted of misdemeanor disorderly conduct."
  16. https://www.dailywire.com/news/denver-shooter-who-killed-right-wing-protester-plans-to-plead-self-defense "Although internet sleuths have been working to uncover information about Dolloff’s background, none of those details have been confirmed, leaving only speculation. Pinkerton, the agency hired to provide security to Denver’s 9NEWS during the rally, says that while Dolloff was assigned to the job, he was an independent contractor, not an employee. It also appears Dolloff lacked the necessary license to serve as a private security guard, something his lawyer says is immaterial to the case. “Dolloff picked up the security jobs as a contractor through Pinkerton,” Richards told the Denver Post adding that “he did not know exactly what security training Dolloff had or what entity provided the training. He also said he didn’t know whether Dolloff had a license to work as a security guard in Denver. Such licenses are required to work in private security in the city.” “Even if he didn’t carry the special Denver security license, it didn’t stop Pinkerton from sending Matt into that job and it doesn’t change the fact that Matt was acting in self-defense,” the lawyer claimed."
  17. https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/elections/trash-bags-undelivered-mail-found-curbside-postal-service-employees "The agents, with the Postal Service's Office of Inspector General, found the curbside bags Sunday while responding to a report about undelivered mail outside of the home, according to CNN. The discovery is among several recent, similar ones regarding discarded mail, amid concerns about the integrity of the U.S. mail system, as a record number of Americans cast mail-in ballots before Election Day on Nov. 3. An inspector general agent told CNN that “several different classes of mail, including business mail, flats, and a small amount of first class mail” was recovered. There was no indication as of Wednesday morning that mail-in ballots were among the items recovered. The agent also said the postal service expects to perform a “piece count” of the mail and make arrangements to have the mail delivered to customers “as soon as feasible.” The Justice Department last week charged a mail carrier in New Jersey for dumping mail. Nicholas Beauchene, 26, was charged with one count of delay of mail and one of obstruction of mail, according to court documents. Beauchene is accused of dumping 1,875 pieces of mail into two dumpsters, including 99 general election ballots, CNN also reports." Cue the 'Soggy-Bottom Boys': "Your In the Jailhouse Now!" .

  19. https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/10/13/colorado-dem-op-violent-agenda-trump-win/ "Though, Jacks made it clear that the targets of his “revolution” would not be limited to Republicans and/or conservatives. To him, moderate Democrats would also have to be dealt with. “Half of the struggle that I have isn’t with Republicans, it isn’t with the right-wing,” Jacks explained. “It’s with f**kin moderates in the Democratic Party with all these people that are just scared of Trump. ‘Oh my God. I’m so scared. I got to do something,’ which is show up and piss off leftists.” Despite his concerns about moderate Democrats, Jacks made it clear in the video that he believes Joe Biden would cooperate with the agenda of the radical left. “Joe Biden was presumably left-wing, and he’s got a functioning signing hand,” Jacks said. “As long as there’s progressive legislation that comes across his desk, I am confident we can occupy his house. We know where he’ll live, and yeah, he wants to veto Medicare For All. Let him veto it! He’s never leaving that house again without protest.” Who is this dumb, fat POS?
  20. https://www.westernjournal.com/gun-owners-america-hits-facebook-fact-checkers-federal-complaint/ "The complaint cites several provisions of the Federal Election Campaign Act that it alleges were violated, including limitations on corporations making in-kind contributions and the prohibition against foreign nationals contributing to U.S. elections. What the complaint characterizes as blatant support of Harris’ campaign violates more than fairness, it said. “Respondents Facebook and AFP Fact Check have provided valuable services to the political campaign of Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris,” the complaint said. “When AFP Fact Check and Facebook substituted articles supportive of candidate Harris for those which were critical of her record, these corporations made public communications paid for with corporate funds,” it said. “Because Respondents are corporations, they are prohibited from providing this service to the campaign free of charge, or for less than they should normally charge. Therefore, these services constitute a prohibited corporate in-kind contribution to the Harris campaign.”

Seven more received Navy Commendation Medals for heroic service under fire; another two were recognized for responsiveness to the scene; and the civilian security officer, Federal Officer Stuart Levitt, received the Distinguished Civilian Medal for Valor. "I am honored to be able to present these awards today," Gregory Slavonic, acting under secretary of the Navy, said, according to a Navy news release. "Five months ago, these individuals' rapid, decisive actions, and their courage under fire, ensured no loss of life. This surprise assault could have been deadlier, but they utilized their training and responded swiftly and exceptionally thwarting the nefarious intent by the intruder." For these security personnel, the call to action came around 6:15 a.m. May 21, when the suspect tried to force his way into the base at the Naval Air Station Ocean Gate. He was in his personal vehicle and began firing a handgun at the gate guard as he accelerated toward the entry point. Master-at-Arms Yaisa Coburn, a petty officer 2nd class, was hit, taking bullets in her protective vest, but still managed to activate a "final denial barrier" to stop the vehicle from getting through the checkpoint."

The AdviseDX test, which detects the Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibody in a blood sample, differs from another Abbott test which looks for the IgG antibody. The IgM antibody is used to determine whether someone had a recent COVID-19 infection, as it becomes undetectable after several weeks, whereas an IgG antibody remains detectable in the body for a longer period of time."
