Train carrying members of Congress hits a truck

Source: CNN

A train carrying members of Congress to their legislative retreat in West Virginia, hit a truck Wednesday, multiple sources told CNN.

One GOP source was unsure how many members of Congress were on the train or how many people were injured, but said there were injuries.

That source said members "hit the deck."

Republican members of Congress were on their way for a retreat at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia starting
Wednesday and ending Friday. Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to speak to members later Wednesday and President Donald Trump is scheduled to address the event tomorrow.

The # is 48: That is the # of White House staff (20) and Trump Campaign people (28) ...

..... that team Mueller has interviewed.

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 20 White House employees have given interviews to the special counsel in his probe of possible obstruction of justice and Trump campaign ties to Russian election interference, according to a document released Thursday that underscores the breadth of the investigation.

An additional 28 people affiliated with the Trump campaign have also been interviewed by either the special counsel or congressional committees probing Russian election meddling, the document notes. It does not name the people nor provide a breakdown of how many were interviewed by Mueller’s team.

*******

I might be wrong but Mueller and company would not be interviewing that many people if
nothing was there.

BTW Alan Alda can play Bob Mueller in the movie.


Everyone on the Internet Made the Same Joke About Donald Trump's Latest Immigration Comments

The second the President announced his latest immigration stance, people on the internet started remixing his remarks in the form of Power Rangers memes.

President Donald Trump previewed a legislative framework on immigration Wednesday that would give hundreds of thousands of people brought here legally a pathway to citizenship, using the unusual word “morph” to refer to the transition.

“We’re going to morph into it,” Trump said to reporters Wednesday as he previewed the plan the White House hopes will pass. “It’s going to happen, at some point in the future, over a period of 10 to 12 years.”

That brought the internet, inevitably, hilariously to the memes about Power Rangers. If you missed the ’90s TV show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was about teens with the power to “morph” into world-saving heroes in Daft-Punk-like helmets and brightly colorful uniforms.

With the news out of KY I have to say right now I miss that man so much.

https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/12/14/photo-captures-the-exact-moment-obama-learned-of-the-sandy-hook-shooting/23307857/

And with the NRA having the GOP on a leash we can be sure this mass shooting will
be the last one until we have another one in a day, a week, or a month but there will
be more.

BTW P.M. Trudeau is a class act too. https://www.democraticunderground.com/10141969785



President Obama w/a brother and sisters of the little kids who were killed in Newton, CT.


After this the President went and held and cried w/the parents of the children that got gunned
down on that awful day in Dec. 2012.

Did you know that no companies ever made investments in America before Trump?

BTW not one word about the KY school shooting.

US says snow-loving lynx no longer need special protection




https://apnews.com/765773d8e11e4f878454860ff326b1db

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Wildlife officials in the United States declared Canada lynx recovered on Thursday and said the snow-loving wild cats no longer need special protections following steps to preserve their habitat.

The Fish and Wildlife Service said it will begin drafting a rule to revoke the lynx’s threatened listing across the Lower 48 state under the Endangered Species Act. Wildlife advocates said they would challenge the move in court.

First imposed in 2000, the threatened designation has interrupted numerous logging and road building projects on federal lands, frustrating industry groups and Western lawmakers.

Some scientists and wildlife advocates have warned that climate change could reduce lynx habitat and the availability of its primary food source — snowshoe hares.

Canada lynx are about the size of bobcats, but with huge paws to help them navigate deep snow. The animals also are found in Montana, Minnesota, Idaho and Washington state.

*****

How long before the GOP allows for hunting of lynx as part of "smart wildlife management?

TRUMP THINKS ONLY BLACK PEOPLE ARE ON WELFARE, BUT, REALLY, WHITE AMERICANS RECEIVE MOST BENEFITS

http://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-welfare-black-white-780252

President Donald Trump was apparently unaware that not all—in fact, the vast majority—of welfare beneficiaries are not black as recently as last March, according to a new report.

In the spring of 2017, the newly elected president met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus. During that meeting, one of the members mentioned to Trump that welfare reform would be detrimental to her constituents— adding, “Not all of whom are black,” according to NBC News.

The president was incredulous. “Really? Then what are they?”

In fact, whites are the biggest beneficiaries when it comes to government safety-net programs like the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, commonly referred to as welfare.

TRUMP IS 'TERRIFIED' OF SHARKS AND HOPES THEY ALL 'DIE,' STORMY DANIELS CLAIMS

Source: Newsweek

President Donald Trump is terrified of sharks and hopes they all die, according to adult film actress, Stormy Daniels.

snip

You could see the television from the little dining room table and he was watching Shark Week and he was watching a special about the U.S.S. something and it sank and it was like the worst shark attack in history. He is obsessed with sharks. Terrified of sharks, said Daniels.

The adult film actress added that Trump was riveted and obsessed with the show, despite his fear of them.

He was like, 'I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.' He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. Its so strange, I know, she said.
