BREAKING: A GOP Hill staffer just told me she was instructed today to keep her distance from Devin Nunes, his staff and the GOP House Intel Cmte staff, because it looks like they are targets "of multiple ongoing investigations by Special Counsel Mueller's office/FBI and the DoJ."

Source: President Trump is Eric Reid's top target in collusion grievance vs. NFL

Source: Yahoo Sports

When Eric Reid filed a grievance against the NFL this week, it highlighted a string of legal breadcrumbs left for months in Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case brought against the league. And now more than ever, those breadcrumbs appear to be leading to one person: President Donald Trump.

A source who has viewed Reid’s confidential collusion filing against the NFL told Yahoo Sports that Trump is the crystal-clear target in the complaint. Specifically, the direct role Trump allegedly played in aligning NFL owners against players who had chosen to kneel as a form of silent protest, an act designed by the players to raise social awareness and promote racial equality, among other pursuits. The source said Reid’s complaint is anchored almost entirely to allegations of direct, but apparently still undefined, communications between Trump and NFL owners, which caused owners to take adverse action against Reid and other players. The “other players” include Kaepernick, but may not be limited to the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.

The source added that the direct communications between Trump and NFL owners are alleged to have taken place both privately and publicly. Presumably, the public communications would include the litany of statements Trump has made about kneeling players on a wide variety of platforms, including speeches, interviews and his own Twitter account. The private communications likely include Trump’s verified personal phone calls with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, but could encompass other conversations that have yet to be revealed.

Rejuvenating antique printer - Toner dump?

No matter what I have done to my Panasonic, 1994 vintage, spots/spider bites remain. I get a faint dark area that divides the page into thirds too - horizontally. The spots are always the same. No change with cleaning. I've tried 70% rubbing alcohol, soft cloths, cotton, vacuum.

The Drum and Toner/developer units were replaced at one point, years ago but they've not had that much use. And that replacement didn't help much.

I'm thinking now there must be dust in the small transistor boards inside the printer, or the contact for the power cord jack/assembly. Or the toner. The cartridges are not new, they're old stock because not manucfactured anymore.

So I'm considering radical innovative exploratory cleaning. Turning the developer upside down to force the toner into the reservoir, then cleaning out the gearing, roller, magnetic rod. I'm fairly sure the toner has some lumps in it. But they just can't be that consistent in making the same spots all the time.

Anyone with experience in these areas? Thanks in advance if you can weigh in.

Listen DUers and you will hear

of a tale of inflation, told in 2 pictures, from 1965. I found these old newspaper ads for supermarkets, and can you believe these prices? Before guns and butter economy of the Vietnam War (Johnson and Nixon), before going off the gold standard (Nixon), before OPEC, before the stimulative policies of Arthur Burns (Nixon and Ford), before the inflation all that caused, before stock market bubbles, Tech wreck, Housing bubble, QE 1,2,3, and now the Idiot in the White House stimulating a full employment economy!!
We are going to get our currency liquidated!

Look at these prices!

The end of Bon-Ton: Liquidators win auction for bankrupt chain's assets, will wind down business


$775 million! No small bid. Nothing spells economic success like bankruptcy and liquidation. Was at one of them this week. Nothing to buy. Store is closing, been there for 40 years including predecessors, anchor in small mall which is now 1/2 empty. Meanwhile a mile up the road more new stores being built on virgin land ... of course. Next recession they all close again and they build some more.
