CNBNews graphic files First, President Biden blamed the oil shortage on Russia. Has Russia given us any more oil? Of course not. Then the President blamed the greedy oil companies.

NRA-ILA Alert: New Credit Card ISO Would Create Gun Registry

NRA-ILA source On September 9, the International Organization for Standardization (“ISO“) announced that it would create a new Merchant Category Code (“MCC”) specific to firearm and ammunition retailers. MCCs are the codes that payment processing networks (like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express) use to categorize various transactions. This is the system that allows various credit cards to offer different benefits for certain categories of purchases or to charge different fees for those same categories. In June, Amalgamated Bank petitioned the ISO to create a new firearm-specific MCC. This was the second such petition after the ISO denied an identical petition last year. The petition was supported by, among others, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), New York Mayor Eric Adams, and the anti-gun groups Giffords and Guns Down America. The petition, at least initially, seemed to lack the support of Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. If fully implemented by the various payment... Read more →


Final preparations underway for lifting fishing vessel Aleutian Isle 

SEATTLE -- Response crews working to salvage the fishing vessel Aleutian Isle successfully rigged all required cables to lift the vessel out of the water and place on a barge near Sunset Point on San Juan Island Friday.   The 58-foot fishing vessel spent over a month under 200 feet of water in Haro Strait, after it sank on Aug. 13 off the west side of San Juan Island, Washington. The exact date and time of the imminent lift depends on tide, current, and onscene weather conditions. In preparation, the Unified Command is executing a pollution mitigation strategy to minimize fuel leaks. Dive crews already plugged all known fuel vents and secured all valves, but it is likely that there will be sheening visible during the lift operations from fuel coming free that was trapped in the vessel.   It is difficult to predict how much fuel might come out. The anticipated amount could cause... Read more →
