The President's Daily Brief (PDB), is a top-secret document produced daily each morning for the President. The PDB is reviewed by a select number of senior officials each approved by the President. The PDB is provided to the president-elect between election day and inauguration. Image
The PDB is produced by the Director of National Intelligence and involves 👉fusing👈 intelligence from the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and any of the other 17 Intelligence Community members.
The PDB is intended to provide the President with new intelligence warranting attention and analysis of sensitive international situations. The prototype of the PDB was termed the President's Intelligence Check List (PICL); the first was produced by CIA officer Richard Lehman at

The VENOVA project was a United States counterintelligence program initiated during World War II by the United States Army's Signal Intelligence Service, later absorbed by the National Security Agency in 1952, which ran from February 1, 1943, until October 1, 1980.
VENOVA was intended to decrypt messages transmitted by the intelligence agencies of the Soviet Union such as NKVD, KGB, and GRU. VENOVA began while the Soviet Union was an ally of the US in WWII and continued during the Cold War.
Project VENOVA decrypted and translated approximately 3,000 messages. The signals intelligence yield included discovery of the Cambridge Five espionage ring in the United Kingdom and Soviet espionage of the Manhattan Project in the US.

Tonight, 76 years ago, C-47A-80-DL, 43-15211, took off from England to breach Hitler’s Festung Europa by dropping a stick of Bravo Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division into Occupied France.
#DDay
This aircraft was in formation six aircraft behind Bravo Company’s commanding officer’s, First Lieutenant Thomas Meehan III, stick when his plane was shot down and he was killed in action.
The 506th was widely scattered during the Mission ALBANY night drop on the morning of D-Day, June 6, 1944. The most famous action for the 506th on D-Day was the Brécourt Manor Assault, still taught at West Point as a classic assault on a fortified position.

A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead were stranded on the top of a cliff looking down upon a beach.
Suddenly, a genie appears to them and says, “I will grant you each one wish if you jump off this cliff.”
The redhead jumps first and yells, “Seagull!”

Poof! The redhead turns into a seagull and flies away.

@bushmillsvassar It’s disinformation. Hydroxychloroquine kills malaria by reducing platelet count thus starving the parasite of O₂. It lowers the immune system’s ability to fight pathogens thus helping lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, both autoimmune disorders. Hydroxychloroquine is useful in
@bushmillsvassar stopping a cytokine storm, a condition where the immune system goes wild as is expected from an immunosuppressive drug. It is safe and effective and tolerated in most people. In rare cases. Hydroxychloroquine causes fatal heart arrhythmia and permanent eye damage.
@bushmillsvassar It does not not cure nor prevent COVID19. It helps you body survive a rare cytokine storm. There is no cure for common coronavirus colds and flu. Only your immune system can kill a virus.

Lost Wingman

I lost sight on a wingman June 14, 2017. His name is John Schulze. John was two years behind me at @okstate’s @AFROTCDet670 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I knew of John; he was selected as the Outstanding Freshman Cadet, an honor we shared.
Unfortunately, John was assigned to another flight or squadron when I was a commander, so I didn't get to really know him well. John and I connected later as Oklahoma State University alumni, but more as military brothers.
If you haven't been in the military, you'll never experience how a friendship can continue as if the thirty years in between never happened. It's one of the invaluable benefits in the best traditions of service.

"In Flanders Fields"

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead, short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

–John McCrae

The legal standard is, “What would a reasonable and prudent person do?”

A “reasonable and prudent” person would self-isolate in fear of infection or if sick, and would know a mask without eye protection provides no protection from a viral respiratory infection, ‘cause “ducts.”
A “reasonable and prudent” person would know wearing a mask reduces a sick person’s ability to infect another, as do surgeons, generally, who wear PPE to prevent infecting the patient; not to prevent contracting the patient’s diseas. Masks reduces ability to, not be, infect[ed].
A “reasonable and prudent” person would read the Constitution and know Article VI, Clause 2 establishes the Constitution, federal laws made pursuant to it, and treaties made under its authority, constitute the "supreme law of the land."

The Supremacy Clause of the Constitution of the United States (Article VI, Clause 2), establishes that the Constitution, federal laws made pursuant to it, and treaties made under its authority, constitute the "supreme law of the land".
#KnowledgeNotMemes
It provides state courts are bound by the supreme law; in case of conflict between federal and state law, the federal law must be applied. Even state constitutions are subordinate to federal law when that law is made in pursuance to the Constitution. In the same respect,
the Supremacy Clause establishes the States are NOT bound by laws created by the federal government that are not made under the specifically enumerated powers delegated to the federal government through the Constitution. "…the power of the Constitution predominates.

It remains for Congress or Court to decide definitively. In Compagnie Francaise & c. v. Board of Health, 186 US 380 (1902) (law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/t…), the Supreme Court affirmed the State’s right to involuntary quarantine individuals to prevent the spread of disease does not
violate due process nor equal protection. However, the Court found in Railroad Company v. Husen, 95 U.S. 465 (1877) (law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/t…) states may not interfere with transportation into or through the State, beyond what is absolutely necessary for its self-protection.”
States may not, under the cover of exerting its police powers, substantially prohibit or burden either foreign or inter-state commerce. In Henderson v. The Mayor, & c., the statute of New York was defended as a police regulation to protect the State against the influx of foreign

The defendant put the judge in a place judges don’t like to be. I think Sullivan thought defendant was railroaded, as did I, which is why Sullivan was upset about the steadfast repeated guilty plea. Judges get angry at defendants who move to change plea at sentencing, after two
years, in violation of plea agreement, when defendant realizes a custodial sentence is coming. Judges get pissed at steadfast prosecutors who, after repeated defendant guilty pleas, suddenly drop charges after two years. The judge is in a lose/lose situation. Federal judges
are not partial to abuse of the federal judiciary and being mocked by both sides. I expect Sullivan to sanction both defendant and prosecution. To what degree, I don’t know. He could tongue-lash them to taking both into custody for contempt, or possibly, perjury.

The Little Red-Haired Girl

The Little Red-Haired Girl is an unseen character in the Peanuts® comic strip by Charles M. Schulz, who serves as the object of Charlie Brown's affection, and a symbol of unrequited love.
#RedheadProblems
Charlie Brown often notices her while eating lunch, failing to muster the courage to speak to her. He first catches sight of her in the November 19, 1961 strip, saying he would "give anything in the world if that little girl with the red hair would come over and sit with me.”
She figures prominently in Valentine's Day strips, several of which focus on Charlie Brown's hope of getting a valentine from her. Charlie Brown typically attempts to give her a valentine but panics at the last minute.

Я не подтверждаю и не опровергаю, что у меня есть какие-либо знания о российской дезинформации, а также о прошлых, текущих или будущих операциях дезинформации против России. Я не знаю ни русского языка, ни кириллицы. Конечно, я не знаю, что Сталин страдал от атеросклероза в
результате сильного курения, умеренного инсульта во время Парада Победы в мае 1945 года и тяжелого сердечного приступа в октябре 1945 года. Я не знаю, Сталин пригласил Маленкова, Молотова, Берия и Хрущев 28 февраля 1953 года на ночь развлечений и пили алкогольные напитки.
Я не знаю, что в 7:00 утра 2 марта Берия и группа медицинских экспертов были вызваны для осмотра Сталина. На основании медицинского осмотра, у Сталина было артериальное давление 190/110 и правосторонняя гемиплегия. Конечно, я не знаю о желудочно-кишечных петехиальных

Sorta. An afterburner “hard start” and my second declared emergancy. At Elgin I had a number two P&W F100-100 airborne hard start caused by “failure of the afterburner to start resulting in excess fuel being ignited by engine exhaust producing high pressure
waves causing the #2 engine to stall and decouple the from the starter.” per the Board.

BOOM!😳 In a hard start, liquid fuel settles in the afterburner either before using the afterburner or after. The result is an uncontrolled explosion resulting in a pressure wave that goes
two ways, out the front and out the back. It causes a compressor stall resulting in power loss. In my case, during a night solo training flight, after coming out of afterburner on the #2 engine, I throttled up again to afterburner pouring more fuel into an already saturated

1. The FBI neither decides nor declines prosecution. The FBI investigates interstate crime & counterespionage.

Per the 5A & 6A, grand juries decide to prosecute and juries convict; unless the defendant waives those rights as defendant did on 30 Nov 17.
assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4318…
The “side deal” was clearly and publicly stated in the charge sheet (assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4318…). The plea agreement is an agreement to not charge defendant on additional counts for acts contrary to §1001 and §951 in exchange for a plea to one count contrary to 18 USC § 1001.
Prosecutors, “the People,” routinely give defendants plea agreements for various reasons. A plea is a legally binding contract between defendant and the People. The contract stipulates defendant provides a thing of value to the People, usually in exchange for less jeopardy.

Reminds me of college! Every morning about 0710, I’d hear a double-sonic boom. Weird I thought. Anything transonic causes a sonic boom first at the leading edge and then the trailing edge (Fluid Dynamics 301). However, the two shockwaves are perceived by the human ear as a
single boom as they are created nearly instantaneously as leading and trailing edges are not far apart; especially at 1,125.328 ft/sec. To hear a double-sonic boom separated by one second requires an aircraft length of 1,126 feet. The only supersonic aircraft large (long) enough
to cause the two shockwaves to be perceptible to the human ear are the Space Shuttle, the Blackbird, and the Concord. I went to @okstate in Stillwater, Oklahoma. No Concords flew over Oklahoma. When the Space Shuttle flew over Oklahoma, it was attached to a subsonic B747.
