The Columbus Division of Fire says one person is dead and five critically injured after a ride malfunctioned at the Ohio State Fair.
The city had been paying over $220,000 annually for 22 guards, but sliced that funding in half for the 2017 budget arguing that it was time for the school system to cover part of the cost as well.
However, almost all Democrats voted against the bill; it failed in a 219-187 vote. Republicans may try to pass it again under regular order with a simple majority.
Lawmakers said Wednesday they are looking into a funding solution for the Department of Veterans Affairs Choice Program, which is at risk of going bankrupt before the end of the fiscal year unless Congress takes prompt action.
Continuing on the clear liberal bias of the media, Concha stated: “Our media, political media, not local media or war correspondents, international reporting, financial reporting. Our political media is broken. When the story gets ignored because of party affiliation, and nothing more.”
Varney and Concha ignored the story for months as well.
Wednesday, the Washington Post picked up on the story, publishing it under the dare-you-not-to-click headline, “Congressional IT staffer charged with home equity loan fraud.”
Concerning media coverage, Politico has reported something on it, but the big three—ABC, NBC, and CBS—have virtually buried this story, preventing the millions of viewers that tune into these respective networks from learning about it. NBC and ABC have been silent in their broadcasts, but CBS did devote 37 seconds to it.
A search of guests at the White House show that Imran’s younger brother Abid was a guest at the White House on Thursday, November 21, 2013. He arrived at 5pm and didn’t depart for 7 hours. He attended with another 17 individuals.
Likely he was there for a legitimate reason. I’d caution you from jumping to conclusions about the White House meeting.
A team of U.S. researchers for the first time ever edited human embryo DNA, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Tech Review revealed Wednesday.
“I see no substantive difference that would make the former act moral and the latter immoral,”
That’s exactly what the pro-life movement has been saying since the beginning.
Anthony Scaramucci, incoming White House communications director, said Wednesday night that he knows who is orchestrating leaks among the communications department and will take “dramatic steps” to stop them.
It’s rumored Clinton will do a lot of blaming, rather than accept the blame for the epic loss. However, not only can Hillary Clinton not assume responsibility for losing the election, but her legion of aides, consultants and advisors couldn’t even help her select an original book title. As it turns out, “What Happened” is also the name of former President Bush’s press secretary Scott McClellan’s book.

“This vote is not only a blow against an outdated Reefer Madness mindset,” says Marijuana Majority Chairman Tom Angell, who first reported Sessions’ letter. “It is a personal rebuke to Jeff Sessions. The attorney general, in contravention of President Trump’s campaign pledges and of public opinion, specifically asked Congress to give him the power to arrest and prosecute medical marijuana patients and providers who are following state laws. A bipartisan group of his former Senate colleagues just said no. A majority of states now allow medical cannabis, and we will not allow drug warriors in the Justice Department to roll back the clock. The war on marijuana is ending, even if Jeff Sessions doesn’t realize it yet.”
0.01% looks like a small percentage, but $69,000,000 is an enormous number. That’s how much the military would spend on health care in 2018 for its 250 transgender members currently in transition, according to NBC’s online article. But instead of focusing on numbers like that, the network news shows touted “outrage” against Trump and interviewed experts claiming the president’s tweets “harm national security.”
DHA and its pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts run a vast organization that dispenses medications through military hospitals and clinics, by mail and at retail stores nationwide via multiple contracts.
The RAND study says that the cost of gender transition treatment for transgender service members would be “relatively low” — that is, relative to total military expenditure on health care. But a closer look at the numbers in the study reveals that the health care costs of transgenders who choose to undergo gender transition treatment in the military would be some 14 times higher than the average health care costs of service members in general.
“There are several members of the conference who feel this really needs to be addressed,” senior House Committee on Appropriations member Robert Aderholt of Alabama said Tuesday. “This isn’t about the transgender issue; it’s about the taxpayer dollars going to pay for the surgery out of the defense budget.”
“We are $20 trillion in debt and the taxpayers … are projected to spend $3.7 billion in the next 10 years for sex-reassignment surgeries,” @RepScottPerry says.
The OPM rule described the House of Representatives as having only 45 staffers and 45 employees, and the Senate as only having 45 total employees. This means that Congress was portraying itself as a small business and therefore eligible to buy health insurance on D.C.’s Small Business Health Exchange Program (SHOP). SHOP exchanges are normally only available for businesses that employ fewer than 100 people–except for Congress, evidently.
