Rep. Banks: Bolton book a “betrayal of the president”

first_imgIndianaLocalNews Previous articleBraun: In-person Republican National Convention could happen, if done correctlyNext articleMillersburg man injured in motorcycle crash Network Indiana Facebook Twitter (Photo supplied/Jim Banks for Congress) WASHINGTON — Indiana Congressman Jim Banks is calling former National Security advisor John Bolton’s book a “betrayal of the president.”“This is the worst type of get-rich-quick scheme that I have ever seen,” Banks said on Fox Business Network on Thursday, June 18. “I hate talking about it because unfortunately there’s a market out there by liberals to buy books like these that bash the president.”Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accuses Bolton of “spreading lies” calling Bolton a “traitor” and that his book is “sad and dangerous.” The Trump administration is trying to block the book by court order saying there could be classified information in it.The tell-all book by Bolton is a memoir of his time as President Trump’s national security advisor.Excerpts that have been leaked to the public show claims by Bolton that President Trump tried to solicit help from Chinese President Xi Jinping to get re-elected in the 2020 presidential election. Bolton also claims Trump supported the building of prison camps for Muslims in China.“Chairman Xi and the Chinese Communist Party want Joe Biden to win the presidential election in the fall,” Banks said. “They don’t want President Trump so what … Secretary Pompeo had to say to dispute his claims show that this book is probably not worth the price tag.”The excerpts also criticize Democrats in Congress from being too narrow-minded on the Ukraine scandal in which the president was investigated for trying to curry favors from Ukrainian leaders in order to try and dig up dirt on political rivals. Those investigations led to a subsequent impeachment trial in the Senate and Trump’s eventual acquittal.Bolton’s book is set to be released early next week barring a judge does not block its release.

Snoop Dogg’s Christmas Present To Willie Nelson Was Dank AF

first_imgTheir public love for the ganj has helped the two artists develop a friendship over the years, as they have become two of the most well-known unofficial spokesmen for recreational marijuana use in popular culture. For Christmas this year, Snoop sent his buddy Willie a truly thoughtful gift–one that was not only festive and seasonally appropriate, but also reflected his interests. Nelson’s son Lukas shared a photo of Willie rocking Snoop’s gift, and let’s just say it’s pretty fantastic. Check it out:Hey hey hey hey…Happy Holidaze! While it would be hard to draw much of a comparison between the music of outlaw country icon Willie Nelson and West Coast hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, it is well-known that the two share a common love: that sticky icky.last_img

Redfield fails drug test, denied plea agreement

first_imgFormer Notre Dame football player Max Redfield was denied a plea agreement Tuesday after failing a drug test, according to a report from WNDU. Redfield and four other current Notre Dame football players were pulled over in Fulton County in August and arrested on charges of marijuana possession. Redfield was additionally charged with possession of a handgun without a license. Redfield pleaded guilty to all counts in November, and had agreed to a plea deal requiring no jail time and mandating a 180-day probation period. However, at his sentencing hearing Tuesday, prosecutors withdrew the deal because he tested positive for marijuana during a court-ordered drug test, Fulton County Deputy Prosecutor Michael Marrs said in an interview with the South Bend Tribune.According to the article in the Tribune, Fulton Superior Court Judge Wayne Steele ordered the drug screen as part of the county probation department’s pre-sentence investigation.The defense attorney for Redfield, Randy Fisher, said he was “completely blindsided” by the results of the test, according to the South Bend Tribune. “I question the validity of the test,” Fisher said in a phone interview with the Tribune. “We had Mr. Redfield tested independently the same week as part of a substance abuse program he entered on his own, and he tested negative for any drugs prior to the court-ordered testing.”Redfield’s next court date is set for Jan. 3, and both lawyers are currently working on a new agreement, according to the Tribune.Following his arrest in August, Redfield was dismissed from the football team and subsequently expelled from the University.last_img read more

Bipartisan Support in Appalachia for New Investment

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Devin Henry for TheHill.com:Appalachian lawmakers in both parties are pushing a bill called the Reclaim Act, which would release $1 billion in federal funding for distressed coal communities.The money, to be appropriated over five years, would help communities diversify their economies.“The communities are not giving up on coal, the people haven’t, and I’m not, either. But … we are desperate for jobs,” said Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.), a member of the bipartisan group.“They’re survivors, and they’ve been through tough conditions before. Now, this one’s about as tough as we’ve ever seen, and the causes are different than what we’ve seen. But people are fighters … we want to do what we can to create job opportunities.”The legislation is backed by the White House and dozens of local communities. It has a powerful sponsor in House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), whose state — along with Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania — would receive several million dollars under the bill.Money would come from the Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) fund, a pool of $2.8 billion meant to help clean up mine sites.Rogers said his bill is designed to expand the scope of that fund, giving cities and local governments the chance to use federal funding to also invest in public infrastructure needed to attract new industries.Local communities have clamored for assistance, said Aaron Wells, who works on economic diversification for the group Appalachian Voices. More than two dozen county commissions in Appalachian states have endorsed either the Reclaim proposal or the Power Plus Plan.“What Power Plus has done — by offering all this federal funding to coal communities — it’s forced our local leaders to engage in a conversation about moving our economies forward,” he said.But political problems have already doomed parts of the proposal.Republicans and the energy industry view Obama’s Clean Power Plan as a major stumbling block for the American coal sector, and anger over that has fueled skepticism about federal efforts to help workers.Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has floated a plan similar to Power Plus, but a recent gaffe  — “We’re going to put a lot of coal companies and coal miners out of business,” she said in March — illustrates the lack of trust coal country has toward Washington.Democrat Jeff Kessler, the minority leader in the West Virginia Senate, said he’s been flummoxed by efforts of his state leaders to deal with the crisis. This session, they passed a plan to lower severance tax rates on coal producers but did little to address the question of modernizing local economies.“I would like to [undertake those efforts], but I’m in the minority,” said Kessler, a gubernatorial candidate.“I would embrace it in a heartbeat, and if I become governor, I will cooperate with it absolutely and entirely. … You can’t just sit back and wring your hands. You have to figure out where you go from here.”Full article: Coal country rages against fall Bipartisan Support in Appalachia for New Investmentlast_img read more

Syosset Residents May Find Plane Parts After Crash, Cops Say

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Investigators believe they’ve recovered most of the small plane that broke up and fell from the sky over Syosset on Tuesday, killing three occupants, but authorities said residents may still find wreckage.Nassau County police, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators worked through the night to secure the aircraft parts scattered in five sites across an estimated 1/3-mile-long debris field along Cold Spring Road.“There may still be some pieces of the plane in and around the area,” Nassau Police Chief Steven Skrynecki told reporters Wednesday during a news conference near the scene. He urged residents to call police if they find plane parts or personal effects that may belong to the victims.The Beech BE35, built in 1973, had taken off from Myrtle Beach, SC and was on its way to Robertson Field in Plainville, Conn. when the crash occurred at 3:39 p.m. Tuesday, the FAA has said. Nassau officials said that the pilot of the doomed craft had sent out a “mayday” call that was received at Republic Airport in Farmingdale.Robert Gertz, an NTSB investigator, told reporters that a plane breaking up mid-air was a rarity, but not unprecedented. He said he’s seen about five such cases in his 18 years on the job.“It’s not completely unheard of, but it’s not common,” Gertz said, noting that the plane appears to have broken apart and didn’t explode.Nassau police identified the pilot as 66-year-old David C. Berube and his two passengers as Dana E. Parenteau, 49, and Benjamin Bridges, 32. All three are from Bristol, Conn.One body was found in the parking lot of the Long Island High School for the Arts, another was found in the nearby woods and the third was found 50 yards away in the Village of Oyster Bay Cove, police said.Skrynecki noted that despite the tragic events, nobody on the ground was injured and the only property damage appears to have been minor, from a wing hitting a house.The incident prompted the Syosset School District to order students and faculty at three nearby schools to stay indoors while the investigation was underway. Residents in the area reported hearing buzzing and a loud boom when the plane came down.The NTSB is continuing its investigation into the cause of the crash.last_img read more

Adam Weitsman donates to Tioga County Probation Program

first_imgThe Decision Points Program was working on incentives to get youth to want to freely visit, as most of the youth they work with are adolescent males, they found out food was a great motivator. “We are in a small town here and the probation department is so important to get kids on the right track. Twenty years ago I was apart of the probation department in Broome County when I got in trouble and it did a lot of good for me. The same experience I had in Broome County I think could happen here in Tioga County and help get kids back on the right track,” said Weitsman. “They role play, they talk it out, we have all these papers all over the walls where they think about what are some of the possible consequences if I make this choice, or this choice, or this choice. So basically its teaching them about making choices in the future.” said Joy Bennet, the Tioga County Probation Director. (WBNG) — Local businessman Adam Weitsman made a generous donation Friday morning to a local program that supports at risk youth. Weitsman presented a donation of $2,500 to the program on Friday morning at his Owego Shredding Facility, after learning that the program is paid partly out of pocket by probation officers.center_img It’s an evidence based program where juveniles meet in a small group and acquire important decision making skills. The program established by the Tioga County Probation Department is called Decision Points. The donation will go towards providing more incentives for at risk youth, one alley they wanted to explore was the purchasing of sneakers for the kids for school.last_img read more

Nextbike system of public bicycles present in over 30 cities in Croatia

first_imgTwo friends, Krešimir Dvorski and Ante Gustin, bravely and proactively set out six years ago with the story of public bicycles promoting integrated public transport. At the very least, the whole road was thorny, even ahead of time in line with the slow reaction and interest of the market, but today, when they have gone through the hardest road and endured the arduous breaking of ice, the time of great expansion of public bicycle systems is slowly coming. From this summer, after many years of waiting, nextbike will be available to citizens and tourists in Split and Dugopolje, as new nextbike locations. Today, on the sixth birthday of the nextbike – public bicycle system, the cake is being cut in more than 30 cities in Croatia and the region, and what follows is integration with other stakeholders in public transport and the expansion of the electric bicycle network. Sit down, drive and enjoy the indigenous tourist offer, what do you say? “In the past year, we have grown from 20 to more than 30 cities. More and more cities and companies are investing in sustainable mobility, so we can say that this is not a trend but a long-term strategy. Users of new forms of transport have become a critical mass in creating public opinion. The need for faster and more favorable movement from point A to point B with the use of the most modern technologies has been met. With the improvement of the user experience and the introduction of the latest generation of bicycles with a built-in electric motor to support the driver (pedelec), it is time to realize our vision of integrating public transport via a mobile application”, Said the founders of the project, Krešimir Dvorski and Ante Gustin.center_img Integrated public transport is imperative, especially in tourism as well as larger cities, and visitors and tourists can use the bus, train, car and public bicycle system as the charms of combined transport. Nextbike system of public bicycles in Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina today has more than 50.000 registered users who have recognized it as the most affordable, fastest, healthiest and most fun transport. The public bicycle system is certainly a great complement to the tourist product for tourist destinations, and I would venture to say that it should be the standard tourist offer today, which unfortunately it is not yet. Imagine that the whole island of Krk is connected by bikesharing stations or the entire Istrian coast, and why not Slavonia from Baranja to Ilok, all connected with the local tourist offer.last_img read more
