Thu, 23 Mar 2017 06:19:30 GMT

The stars of American baseball have finally earned their World Baseball Classic stripes.

After three World Baseball Classics dating back to the inaugural tournament in 2006 in which Team USA never made it past the semifinals, the Americans won their first title in decisive style in front of a raucous, bipartisan crowd of 51,565...

Saying we're not afraid isn't enough

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:20:05 GMT

They stood in the centre of Brussels. Row on row. Hands held high, making hearts to the heavens. Showing the slaughtered they were not forgotten. Reminding themselves they were here with love. Looking to show humanity wins. That love conquers all. They lay in the centre of London, face down where they fell. Stabbed by a knife, rammed with a car, flung, broken, into the Thames, life bleeding out on the curb. And the news came thick and fast.



Why President Trump's abysmal popularity rating won't hurt him

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:15:34 GMT

If you perked up at news this week that President Trump's approval rating had dipped to 37 percent, according to figures tracked by Gallup, you should un-perk. The truth is, whether Trump is in the 30s or 40s — or even 20s or 50s — simply doesn't matter much. For those of us between the ages of 25 and 100 years old, this is going to take some getting used to. We are accustomed to believing that a president needs to be popular to see his agenda become law. Presidents from Woodrow Wilson to George W. Bush used their political...

Ri had lived in Vietnam for about...

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 04:12:10 GMT

Philadelphians will soon no longer be able to purchase 2-liters or 12-packs of Pepsi soda products at local stores, according to grocers. Managers of two independent Philly grocery stores confirmed they’d received letters from Pepsi saying the company would no longer distribute 2-liters or 12-packs to Philadelphia stores, as of March 20.



Woodward: Surveillance Report Likely 'Highly Classified Gossip' About Trump

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 04:10:14 GMT

Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward said that allegations from a report that say President Trump's transition team was named in surveillance reports of foreign individuals would be "gross violations." A couple of diplomats who were legitimately wiretapped were talking about meeting Trump or his team, Woodward said on "The O'Reilly Factor." However, U.S. intelligence agencies are supposed to comply with "minimization" rules, which protect Americans' names from being published in reports or leaked in any way, he added. "The idea that there was intelligence value was really thin," Woodward said. "You've got this really serious problem potentially of people...



House GOP leaders emerge from late-night meeting without yet securing enough votes

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 03:54:03 GMT

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump and House Republicans are still scrambling to reach a deal on legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare ahead of what is expected to be a dramatic vote Thursday. House Speaker Paul Ryan held a long meeting Wednesday night in his office with moderate Republicans. Cameras from networks were set up for possible reactions and readouts, but it was clear leadership had no good news to share. With the exception of a few members who rushed away without speaking to press, all leaders, including Ryan, ducked out using side exits.

Freedom Caucus appears to be getting on board with "Repeal and Replace" (Hannity Show)

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 03:28:55 GMT

Congressmen Mark Meadows and Dave Brat, who have up to now been dead set against Ryan's "Repeal and Replace" bill were on the Hannity Show (towards the end) tonight both looking like the cat that ate the canary. Apparently much progress has been made on the "Repeal and Replace" bill and they are now optimistic that the revised bill is very close to getting the necessary votes tomorrow to pass the House. I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that Ryan's bill has been gutted and rewritten to satisfy the Freedom Caucus (a congressional caucus consisting...



Bidding has begun for Trump's border wall

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 03:23:54 GMT

The Trump administration wants to build a 30-foot-high border wall that looks good from the north side and is difficult to climb or cut through, according to a pair of contract notices posted to a government website further detailing President Donald Trump’s promise to build a “big, beautiful wall” at the Mexican border. The notices were made public late Friday by Customs and Border Protection, the Homeland Security Department agency that will oversee the project and eventually patrol and maintain the wall. The proposals are due to the government by March 29.



Normangee police chief arrested after standoff at his home

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 02:08:02 GMT

NORMANGEE, Texas (KTRK) -- After gunfire, a brief chase and negotiations by police radio, the police chief in Normangee, a small town north of College Station, has been arrested. Charles Herford is charged with evading arrest and deadly conduct. Deputies responded to his home in the 400 block of North 4th Street after a 911 call around 1:55 a.m. Texas Rangers said dispatchers spoke briefly to Herford's wife, but then the call dropped. When they called back, investigators said, the dispatcher heard two gunshots. As deputies responded, they located Herford driving through the city in his police unit. They said...



Hawaii Republican Leader Rep. Beth Fukumoto Officially Resigns From GOP

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 02:06:19 GMT

In a letter to the Hawaii Republican Party on Wednesday, Rep. Beth Fukumoto wrote about the partisanship she saw from her colleagues on the right, which included criticism from her own caucus that she felt was due to her participation at the Women's March in Honolulu in January. "This election, I saw members of my party marginalizing and condemning minorities, ethnic or otherwise, and making demeaning comments towards women," Fukumoto wrote in her letter. "So, when I listened as our now top office holder refused to condemn the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, speaking out didn't seem...

Actor Shia LaBeouf is taking his controversial anti-President Trump art installation across the pond, claiming America isn’t “safe enough” for his work. The “He Will Not Divide Us” webcam exhibit has been adopted by the Liverpool-based Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, the group said Tuesday.



LaBeouf Taking Anti-Trump Project to England Because ‘America Not Safe Enough’

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 01:56:15 GMT

In a statement released a day before a terrorist attack struck in the heart of London, actor-turned-crazy-man Shia LaBeouf has announced he is relocating his “art project” to England because America just isn’t safe enough. LaBeouf’s webcam installation “He Will Not Divide Us” began at the New York’s Museum of the Moving Image on Inauguration Day with the intent of staying there for the duration of Donald Trump’s presidency, but was removed by the museum less than a month later after the camera was constantly swarmed by ne’er-do-wells and trolls.  The project found a new home in Albuquerque, but after...

Authorities: Man errantly texted prosecutor about drug swap

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 01:52:32 GMT

Authorities say a man mistakenly sent a text message to a Pennsylvania prosecutor indicating that he wanted to trade marijuana for heroin. Luzerne County prosecutors say Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews received a text Nov. 2 using drug lingo that they called an “obvious text for a drug deal.” They say she later received a photo of a plastic bag containing a green substance on a scale.



‘You got swamped’: Schwarzenegger calls out Trump’s low approval rating

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 01:47:51 GMT

Add another chapter to the ongoing star war between President Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger. By way of dimly-lit video shot from an urban waterfront, Schwarzenegger mocked the president’s low approval ratings via Twitter on Tuesday. The former California governor and actor was not above tossing a few barbs in the president’s direction. “Donald, the ratings are in, and you got swamped,” said Schwarzenegger, a Republican but not a Trump supporter. “Wow. Now you’re in the 30s?”



USAF Looks To Retire The F-15C Eagle And Replace It With Upgraded F-16s

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 01:44:03 GMT

This startling news came during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the current state of the U.S. Air Force. Chairman Joe Wilson asked right out of the gate about a previously unknown USAF plan to retire the F-15C/D Eagle fleet and replace them with F-16s. The subject of the question itself seemed to be big news to the committee with Congresswoman Vikki Hartzler later asking about what upgrades the F-15C/D was going to get so it could meet modern threats. Obviously the answer is not many if the Air Force is going to retire the jets in the relatively...



Leaders’ Appeals Fail to Sway House Foes of Health Care Bill

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 01:41:19 GMT

WASHINGTON — A small but potentially pivotal group of House conservatives were largely unmoved Wednesday by appeals from Vice President Mike Pence and House Republican leaders to support a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, leaving it unclear whether President Trump and the Republican Congress could fulfill one of their central campaign promises.Speaker Paul D. Ryan has expressed confidence that the House will pass the bill, scheduled for a vote on the House floor on Thursday. But on the eve of the crucial vote, party leaders appeared to be short of a majority and were working into...



Washington justice to feds: Keep immigration agents away

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 01:25:30 GMT

SEATTLE (AP) — The chief justice of the Washington state Supreme Court on Wednesday urged the Department of Homeland Security to keep immigration agents away from courthouses, saying it's "deeply troubling" that lawyers and judges have reported seeing more of them recently.In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Chief Justice Mary Fairhurst said the agents' presence could scare people away from courthouses, including domestic violence victims and witnesses in criminal trials."When people are afraid to appear for court hearings, out of fear of apprehension by immigration officials, their ability to access justice is compromised," Fairhurst wrote. "Their absence...
