  1. Any chance of training during the week? I work weekends and it's hard to get time off. My job is exempt btw.
  2. I had to come into work last night. The place I work for is considered exempt. Since this place is out in the country, I can avoid the main highways for the most part. Ironically enough I ended up passing by 2 state troopers on the edge of a small town. They didn't do anything. Perhaps it's because I have several antennas on my truck which makes it look like I work for some government agency. (Actually, I'm with AMRRON and am also a storm spotter) I do have my work I.D., but I wonder if I should ask my boss for a letter similar to the one above just in case.
  3. Learn different ways of hunting, fishing, trapping growing your own fruits and vegetables. I went to the store the other day and they had plenty of vegetable seed packets. (Not sure if they were non - GMO)
  4. Her royal highness's order is dangerous and unconstitutional. How does this help prevent the spread of any disease? Answer: it doesn't. It would be like passing a law saying the COVID 19 is illegal. Totally stupid, ineffective, a waste of time and resources. I certainly hope that the mayors in my AO don't get any bright ideas like that. I just learned that there are now 3 cases here in central IL. One person is in intensive care.
  5. Iran directly responsible per multiple US sources. Since this is being considered a major escalation we need to act swiftly and severely. Enough is enough.
  6. Checking in. Mrs. DW-14 has been adamant about stocking up, having enough supplies, wood, water, food, equipment for the long haul. I'm so thankful that God brought her into my life.
  7. I just did my part by sending in that notice to the A/t-F and joining GOA. If they really want to register my guns they can register my glue gun, my staple gun and my caulking gun. My other ones were carried away in a freak tornado.
  8. Delta Whiskey 14 checking in. I just told one of my co-workers about My Militia. He seemed interested and said he was going to check us out.
  9. Headhunter. Sorry to hear about your wife. How is she doing? I'll be praying for the both of you. As far as checking in goes, I'm not in charge of anything as far as I know. Perhaps you're thinking of LTC Grunt or Sheepdog? Anyway, it's good to hear from you. If you're ever in my AO let me know. Maybe we can have lunch or something.
  10. First person to person transmission of the virus has been reported in Chicago. Apparently the husband of the woman who was diagnosed contracted it from her. She had traveled to China. Both are in their 60's. He is in isolation and doing well at this time. My wife and I are taking precautions and stocking up. I would add that we should make sure we get plenty of sleep along with the hand washing, proper nutrition and exercise.
  11. Not sure if this is related, but is very interesting. Department of Justice Office of Public Affairs FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Tuesday, January 28, 2020 Harvard University Professor and Two Chinese Nationals Charged in Three Separate China Related Cases The Department of Justice announced today that the Chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department and two Chinese nationals have been charged in connection with aiding the People’s Republic of China. Dr. Charles Lieber, 60, Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, was arrested this morning and charged by criminal complaint with one count of making a materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statement. Lieber will appear this afternoon before Magistrate Judge Marianne B. Bowler in federal court in Boston, Massachusetts. Yanqing Ye, 29, a Chinese national, was charged in an indictment today with one count each of visa fraud, making false statements, acting as an agent of a foreign government and conspiracy. Ye is currently in China. Zaosong Zheng, 30, a Chinese national, was arrested on Dec. 10, 2019, at Boston’s Logan International Airport and charged by criminal complaint with attempting to smuggle 21 vials of biological research to China. On Jan. 21, 2020, Zheng was indicted on one count of smuggling goods from the United States and one count of making false, fictitious or fraudulent statements. He has been detained since Dec. 30, 2019. Dr. Charles Lieber According to court documents, since 2008, Dr. Lieber who has served as the Principal Investigator of the Lieber Research Group at Harvard University, which specialized in the area of nanoscience, has received more than $15,000,000 in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense (DOD). These grants require the disclosure of significant foreign financial conflicts of interest, including financial support from foreign governments or foreign entities. Unbeknownst to Harvard University beginning in 2011, Lieber became a “Strategic Scientist” at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and was a contractual participant in China’s Thousand Talents Plan from in or about 2012 to 2017. China’s Thousand Talents Plan is one of the most prominent Chinese Talent recruit plans that are designed to attract, recruit, and cultivate high-level scientific talent in furtherance of China’s scientific development, economic prosperity and national security. These talent programs seek to lure Chinese overseas talent and foreign experts to bring their knowledge and experience to China and reward individuals for stealing proprietary information. Under the terms of Lieber’s three-year Thousand Talents contract, WUT paid Lieber $50,000 USD per month, living expenses of up to 1,000,000 Chinese Yuan (approximately $158,000 USD at the time) and awarded him more than $1.5 million to establish a research lab at WUT. In return, Lieber was obligated to work for WUT “not less than nine months a year” by “declaring international cooperation projects, cultivating young teachers and Ph.D. students, organizing international conference, applying for patents and publishing articles in the name of” WUT. The complaint alleges that in 2018 and 2019, Lieber lied about his involvement in the Thousand Talents Plan and affiliation with WUT. On or about, April 24, 2018, during an interview with investigators, Lieber stated that he was never asked to participate in the Thousand Talents Program, but he “wasn’t sure” how China categorized him. In November 2018, NIH inquired of Harvard whether Lieber had failed to disclose his then-suspected relationship with WUT and China’s Thousand Talents Plan. Lieber caused Harvard to falsely tell NIH that Lieber “had no formal association with WUT” after 2012, that “WUT continued to falsely exaggerate” his involvement with WUT in subsequent years, and that Lieber “is not and has never been a participant in” China’s Thousand Talents Plan. Yanqing Ye According to the indictment, Ye is a Lieutenant of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China and member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). On her J-1 visa application, Ye falsely identified herself as a “student” and lied about her ongoing military service at the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), a top military academy directed by the CCP. It is further alleged that while studying at Boston University’s (BU) Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering from October 2017 to April 2019, Ye continued to work as a PLA Lieutenant completing numerous assignments from PLA officers such as conducting research, assessing U.S. military websites and sending U.S. documents and information to China. According to court documents, on April 20, 2019, federal officers interviewed Ye at Boston’s Logan International Airport. During the interview, it is alleged that Ye falsely claimed that she had minimal contact with two NUDT professors who were high-ranking PLA officers. However, a search of Ye’s electronic devices demonstrated that at the direction of one NUDT professor, who was a PLA Colonel, Ye had accessed U.S. military websites, researched U.S. military projects and compiled information for the PLA on two U.S. scientists with expertise in robotics and computer science. Furthermore, a review of a WeChat conversation revealed that Ye and the other PLA official from NUDT were collaborating on a research paper about a risk assessment model designed to decipher data for military applications. During the interview, Ye admitted that she held the rank of Lieutenant in the PLA and admitted she was a member of the CCP. Zaosong Zheng In August 2018, Zheng entered the United States on a J-1 visa and conducted cancer-cell research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston from Sept. 4, 2018, to Dec. 9, 2019. It is alleged that on Dec. 9, 2019, Zheng stole 21 vials of biological research and attempted to smuggle them out of the United States aboard a flight destined for China. Federal officers at Logan Airport discovered the vials hidden in a sock inside one of Zheng’s bags, and not properly packaged. It is alleged that initially, Zheng lied to officers about the contents of his luggage, but later admitted he had stolen the vials from a lab at Beth Israel. Zheng stated that he intended to bring the vials to China to use them to conduct research in his own laboratory and publish the results under his own name. The charge of making false, fictitious and fraudulent statements provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of visa fraud provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of acting as an agent of a foreign government provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of conspiracy provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of smuggling goods from the United States provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Field Division Joseph R. Bonavolonta; Michael Denning, Director of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Boston Field Office; Leigh-Alistair Barzey, Special Agent in Charge of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, Northeast Field Office; Philip Coyne, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General; and William Higgins, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Export Enforcement, Boston Field Office made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorneys B. Stephanie Siegmann, Jason Casey and Benjamin Tolkoff of Lelling’s National Security Unit are prosecuting these cases with the assistance of trial attorneys William Mackie and David Aaron at the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section. The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. These case are part of the Department of Justice’s China Initiative, which reflects the strategic priority of countering Chinese national security threats and reinforces the President’s overall national security strategy. In addition to identifying and prosecuting those engaged in trade secret theft, hacking and economic espionage, the initiative will increase efforts to protect our critical infrastructure against external threats including foreign direct investment, supply chain threats and the foreign agents seeking to influence the American public and policymakers without proper registration.
  12. I just ordered some n 95 masks from chinook medical. Keep Shooting dot com has US Dept of Defense pandemic kits which I ordered as well. You have to click on equipment then safety and survival. It's on the seventh page. What about an NBC mask and filter? More expensive but worth it imho.
  13. I finally got my ham radio license again after letting it lapse several years ago.

      I just got my beofangs,  Lots to learn.

  14. Perhaps someone could use a variation of that like MyMilitia period Com or my militia Decimal Point com. I wonder if they would catch something like that right away.
  15. Delta Whiskey 14 on alert and monitoring.
  16. I have ordered stuff from Keep Shooting.com and Military Clothing.com with no problems.

    Iran

    That would explain his demeanor the next day when he gave his speech. Mrs. Delta Whiskey 14 and I both noticed that something was off. He seemed tense and not his usual confident self. As far as the Ukrainian plane goes, I want to put this out there. Russia and Iran are pretty much allies. Russia has been attempting to annex Ukraine. My question is were there any significant passengers from the Ukraine on that flight? How convenient for Russia to have Iran "accidentally" shoot down the plane. Perhaps the Canadians and Iranians were not the actual target.
  18. Could it have been some kind of underground nuclear test? We really don't know just how advanced the Iranians are. Remember, the are in cahoots with NK. On top of that they just got finished taking part in military drills with Russia and China in the Indian ocean. Who knows what kind of help they are getting.
