New Mexico budget crisis.



https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/new-mexico/articles/2020-04-28/new-mexico-finance-secretary-resigns-as-budget-crisis-looms

New Mexico and Santa Fe headed towards a financial crisis. The Los Alamos study group will again suggest closing down LANL as a way to save money for New Mexico since according to them Los Alamos creates poverty. How it does that is beyond me.

Q-Clearance question

If you lie about something on your own 5 year security update regarding not paying your taxes, bankruptcy, a DWI, drug use, etc., you could have your Q-Clearance removed.

What happens to a person with a Q-Clearance who knowingly lies about someone else who has a Q-Clearance with comparable but untrue allegations? In other words, what happens to employees that purposefully weaponize Q-Clearance information against another employee with false information?

China may have conducted low-level nuclear test



The US state department has claimed China may have secretly conducted a low-yield underground nuclear test, in an accusation likely to further inflame already poor relations between Washington and Beijing.

Blog rules

Scooby, recently a poster has taken over this blog with comments about the defense industry, which is irrelevant to the NNSA and flouts the rules of this blog. Could you kindly post the blog rules so as to prevent this from happening again? It’s an unfortunate distraction from an otherwise interesting blog.
