Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and her campaign, claiming that her loss to GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp was caused by voting irregularities, are preparing to take a drastic step in order to derail Kemp taking office if state officials declare Kemp the winner: a legal challenge that would call for an entirely new election.
WASHINGTON — A Democratic congressman has proposed outlawing “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution, a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms.
In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”
As migration-related news coverage continues to center around U.S. troops deploying to the U.S.-Mexico border in anticipation of the migrant caravan’s long-awaited arrival, one service member has reportedly gone against the security grain by smuggling Mexican migrants into the United States.
California National Guardsman Pfc. Edward Jair Acosta-Avila was arrested Nov. 10 when his car was stopped near San Diego, California, about two miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, USA Today reported.
After pulling over Acosta-Avila’s Honda Accord, Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended five individuals, including three undocumented Mexican nationals who were discovered hiding under a blanket in the back seat.
Humanity is facing a long, cold winter which could see temperatures across the planet plunge to depressing lows. That’s the warning from a Nasa scientist who fears sunspot activity on the surface of our star has dropped so low that it could herald the arrival of a uniquely grim mini Ice Age. ‘We see a cooling trend,’ Martin Mlynczak of Nasa’s Langley Research Center told Space Weather.
Although they look very similar to the Rhode Island Red, the New Hampshire never attained the runaway success that the Rhode Island Red did.
It was overshadowed by the success of the Rhode Island Red even though the two were created just several years apart. The fact that they look very similar may have had something to do with it.
This is a shame since this bird has much to offer the modern homesteader as a true dual purpose hen.
Today we are going to discuss this often overlooked bird and see if it would fit into your flock. We will look at its history and origins, before discussing the known color varieties, temperament, egg laying abilities and much more…
I just copped a 30 day suspension from FB after putting in some serious work to get another 3 days off.
I’m not kidding, this time it was work. I posted all kinds of weird ‘offensive’ shit and didn’t get a second glance.
First, the pictures they let slide:
A Pittsburgh woman is facing several charges after allegedly throwing several cans of SpaghettiOs at a woman’s vehicle in Pittsburgh’s Terrace Village neighborhood.
The incident happened last month as the victim was expecting to meet with a man who was expected to provide money for their children.
Here’s what I love to see, a satisfied customer with great feedback.
Earlier I had contacted Bill to see if he could work on project for me. I recently had the pleasure of having my first granddaughter brought into the world. What I was looking for was a jewelry box the granddaughter could have now and then use as she became older. Hopefully, becoming a family heirloom passed down from daughter to daughter.
Bill had some previous pictures of the custom box on his website over the last few months. He has been given permission to post more in-depth pictures on his website as long as the personal details are omitted.
With this brief mention of Bill and his services my intention was to provide some feedback to you and your readers. Working with Bill on this was a true collaboration. The original concepts were discussed with him. He added value with construction details that were included as the concepts solidified. During each stage of construction Bill provided several detailed photos that allowed me to monitor progress. The completed box was received today.
Everyone who has seen this box have been praiseworthy of the workmanship, construction details, and materials utilized. I would concur. My daughter has only seen a single piece of this so far. She is very happy with what she has seen, and looking forward to seeing the completed project soon.
In closing, anyone who is wanting a custom designed wood item should contact Bill. I believe they will be pleased with the interaction and overall progress of working with Bill on their own custom wood project.
Folks, I have several pieces made by Bill and I can personally vouch for everything Remo said.
Remember, Christmas is coming up and if you want that perfect gift for that special person in your life, Bill is the person to go to. Please remember to place your orders early.
His ad is in my sidebar as Bill’s Custom Wood Products and you can find his contact information there.
A federal judge on Friday granted CNN’s request for a court order that would temporarily reinstate network correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House press pass, which had been suspended indefinitely in the wake of a fiery exchange between the reporter and President Donald Trump a week earlier.
The ruling from Judge Timothy Kelly, who was appointed by Trump, was the first victory for CNN in the ongoing case.
Just because he’s in the room doesn’t mean that Trump has to call on him or answer any of his questions. Let him throw a temper tantrum over not being called on, then physically eject him from the property for being disruptive.
A one thousand year old Anglo-Saxon remedy for eye infections which originates from a manuscript in the British Library has been found to kill the modern-day superbug MRSA in an unusual research collaboration at The University of Nottingham.
Dr Christina Lee, an Anglo-Saxon expert from the School of English has enlisted the help of microbiologists from University’s Centre for Biomolecular Sciences to recreate a 10th century potion for eye infections from Bald’s Leechbook an Old English leatherbound volume in the British Library, to see if it really works as an antibacterial remedy. The Leechbook is widely thought of as one of the earliest known medical textbooks and contains Anglo-Saxon medical advice and recipes for medicines, salves and treatments.
Early results on the ‘potion’, tested in vitro at Nottingham and backed up by mouse model tests at a university in the United States, are, in the words of the US collaborator, “astonishing”. The solution has had remarkable effects on Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) which is one of the most antibiotic-resistant bugs costing modern health services billions.
‘If the president wants to exclude all reporters from the White House grounds, he has the authority to do that,’ a lawyer for the administration said during a hearing.
Donald Trump sought Wednesday to land a massive blow in his long-fought battle against the news media, with administration lawyers asserting in court that the president could bar “all reporters” from the White House complex for any reason he sees fit.
Two Deschutes County inmates on a work crew got drunk on the alcohol from hand sanitizer, then went joyriding on a stolen ATV until deputies caught up with them Wednesday, authorities say.
Christopher G. Turre, 30, and Shawn D. McCallister, 34, were part of a four-inmate work crew at a ranch east of Bend feeding rescue animals and cleaning up the property. At some point, Turre and McCallister drank sanitizer from a container in the jail van, took off on a sheriff’s office four-wheeler and broke through a ranch entrance gate on their way off the land, the sheriff’s office said.

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office now believes the deputy who was shot while looking for an illegal hunter was injured by his own service weapon.
Deputy Jarrett Turner was shot in the foot Monday evening. The sheriff’s office calls it an “accidental discharge” from backup pistol on the deputy. A landowner had called to report that someone set up a deer blind and was trespassing on his property near Cattlebaron and White Settlement roads.
The 27-year-old deputy approached a tree where the owner said he thought the deer blind was located. He had a flashlight in one hand and one of his guns in the other.
