On Saturday, President Donald Trump sparked controversy with his stark criticism of the California wildfires. While most people are aware of how difficult it can be to pinpoint and contain a natural disaster, unfortunately, Trump is blaming California authorities for the problem. In his infamous tweet, he ranted about the ongoing disaster and even threatened to withhold federal funding for the state.
As expected, the angry tweet sparked outrage and many people have reacted to the statement. Now, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff is speaking out about the situation and he’s dismissing all of Trump’s claims.
It’s been days since the midterm election, and the state of Georgia still has yet to officially announce the name of its new governor. Initially, the faceoff between former Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams ended with him being the projected winner of the race. But shortly after the election, there was mounting speculation of alleged voter suppression and other political obstacles that may have sacrificed the integrity of the election. For that reason, Georgia ultimately opted for a recount, and Stacey Abrams adamantly refused to concede. Needless to say, Brian Kemp wasn’t pleased at all. Now, he’s speaking out about the political debacle yet again and he reportedly has a damning message for Abrams.
President Donald Trump faced backlash Saturday after posting a tweet in which he blamed poor management for the devastation caused by California wildfires. That tweet read as follows.
“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
Among the problems with that statement is the fact that the federal government manages most of the state’s forests. According to the University of California Forest Research and Outreach, the federal government manages 19 million of the 33 million acres of forest in the state, so most of the state’s forest fall under the president’s jurisdiction.
Camille Grammer is now among the mounting list of California residents who have fallen victim to the vicious wildfires currently destroying Malibu. According to The Blast, on Sunday, November 10, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills took to social media with a lengthy post about the natural disaster confirming she’d lost her home in the Woolsey, CA wildfires. Camille Grammer shared a gutwrenching, aerial photo of her Malibu home in flames.
With the photo, she wrote, “Sadly my house couldn’t be saved. The courageous firefighters were able to save my cars and personal items recovered from my home.” Camille continued, “I thanked the fire captain and his team of firemen for all of their hard work. He took the time to explain what happened and I’m grateful for all of their hard work trying to save my home. Sad we lost our home but grateful that my family is safe.”
The last family waiting to find out about the status of their loved ones following the Thousand Oaks shooting has now learned of their young daughter’s death. According to People, the family of 20-year-old Kristina Morisette, who worked as a cashier in Thousand Oaks, was forced to wait for twelve hours to find out if she had survived the ordeal.
It was twelve hours of terror and anxiety as Michael and Martha Morisette held on to cautious hope that their daughter was okay. The family had been awoken in the early hours of Thursday morning by someone pounding at their front door. It was the frantic knocking of Kristina’s best friend who lived down the street. There had been a shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill.
An 11-year-old Arizona girl foiled a kidnapper by demanding a “code word,” causing him to flee once he realized she wasn’t going to fall for his scheme, Fox News is reporting. Now the girl’s mother is crediting that bit of parenting advice with saving her daughter’s life.
For decades now, parenting advocates have encouraged parents to use “code words” as a tool in their belt to keep their kids safe from kidnappers. As Good Housekeeping explains, the concept is beautiful in its simplicity: assign a code word that only the child knows. That way, in the rare event where an adult who isn’t known to the child may need to pick them up, the adult can use the code word and the child can know that the adult is genuine. Any adult who doesn’t know or use the code word is probably up to no good.
An estimated 5,500 mostly-Honduran people from Central America are departing from Mexico City and heading for the U.S.-Mexico border, most of them through Tijuana, which lies about 1,700 miles northwest of Mexico City. It’s the last stage of their journey that began nearly a month ago when they departed from San Pedro Sula in Honduras. Their size grew as they made their way to Mexico’s capital city. The Los Angeles Times reported that the migrant caravan has moved through southern Mexico on foot or by car, bus, or truck and stayed largely in a sports field that was converted into a refugee camp about a week ago. Their stay at the camp allowed them to rest and leave Mexico City refreshed. About 3,000 of them opted to seek refugee status in Mexico City instead of continuing on to the U.S.
Georgia man Robert Page’s wife of nearly 50 years reported him missing about 5 p.m. on Thursday after she returned home and found him gone. According to reports, police began and ended their search for the 70-year-old Page at the home of his neighbor Christian Ponce-Martinez, after surveillance video from the home of a neighbor showed the suspect outside the Pages’ home earlier in the day.
Fox 5 Atlanta reported that officers found Martinez hiding under a couch when they entered his home. They said he seemed nervous and behaved in a suspicious manner. It wasn’t long before investigators noticed a trail of blood at the home. They followed the trail through the backyard and about 11 p.m. discovered the dismembered remains of the elderly minister who had been his neighbor. Martinez had placed Page’s body parts in a cooler that he had hidden under two tarps in his backyard.
A 62-year-old man had the shock of his life when he reportedly snapped his penis in two places while having sex in a Taiwan motel.
According to theDaily Mail, the unfortunate incident took place while the retiree was having sex with his bed partner, who was on top during the session when she heard a “loud crack.” The man, who has only been identified with his surname “Liao,” was immediately rushed to the hospital by his partner.
According to the report, doctors at the Feng-Yuan Hospital Ministry Of Health And Welfare examined the man’s condition and said that his penis was left resembling a saxophone and was the size of an aubergine because of the traumatizing fracture.
Picking up at the end of this story, we could report that scooter sharing companies are making a push for scooter safety and awareness. The Verge ends their article on the latest news about Lime this way.
“Following the recall of the Segway Ninebot scooters, Lime launched a $3 million program called Respect the Ride, which is designed to educate riders on safe riding practices, distribute helmets, and improve maintenance. It says that it will distribute 250,000 free helmets in the next six months around the world, and that it will partner with city officials to help improve safety.”
It goes on to say that the CEO of Bird, the other big scooter sharing company is working on ruggedized scooters that would stand up to real-world use. This is all great news. Unfortunately, that is not where the story begins.
President Trump’s statements about his past relationship, if any, with Matthew Whitaker, the man he recently appointed as acting Attorney General, have been inconsistent. He most recently said that he does not know him. White House Adviser Kellyanne Conway, however, said on Sunday morning news program Fox News Sunday that he does know Whitaker and has known him for about a year.
The Huffington Post reports that President Trump stated in an interview with Fox & Friends last month that he knew Matthew Whitaker.
“I can tell you Matt Whitaker’s a great guy. I mean, I know Matt Whitaker.”
The troops that Donald Trump sent to the U.S.-Mexico border in advance of the arrival of a caravan of migrants seeking asylum are without hot food and electricity and working in sweltering conditions, a new report claims.
Trump has come under fire for announcing that he was sending between 10,000 and 15,000 troops to the border to offer support in advance of the migrant caravan. Critics said it was a ploy before the midterm elections and that the troops were unnecessary given that the migrants were mostly families fleeing violence in Central American countries to seek asylum in the United States, but Trump still characterized the migrants as dangerous criminals and said they planned to invade the U.S.
Lawyer Michael Avenatti decided to post a video on Twitter which he says vindicates Juan Carlos Granados and proves that Tucker Carlson isn’t telling the truth about what transpired at the Virginia Country Club where an assault reportedly occurred last month.
The Daily Mail says that Granados is planning to press charges against Tucker Carlson and his son, Buckley, for assault at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. Michael Avenatti tweeted that Carlson had “assaulted a gay, Latino immigrant, and had his membership rescinded from the country club.”
Carlson struck back, saying that Granados called Carlson’s teen daughter ugly names, but denied that he or his son assaulted anyone.
“My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s wh**e?’ He then called her a ‘f**king c**t. ”
As wildfires continue to rage through multiple areas in Northern and Southern California, more than 150,000 people have been forced to evacuate from their homes and the death toll is gradually rising as bodies are being discovered.
Now, it is being reported that at least five people were burned to death while trying to escape from vehicles. According to authorities in Northern California, the people were trying to adhere to the mandatory evacuation order, but due to the rapid speed of the fire, they were unable to do so. In fact, the fire was reportedly spreading so rapidly, firefighters did not attempt to intervene.
A Turkish journalist who says he has heard an audio recording that captures the brutal, seven-minute-long murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi has told the Middle Eastern news agency Al-Jazeera what the recording allegedly reveals to be Khashoggi’s chilling final words before a team of Saudi Arabian assassins snuffed out his life.
“I’m suffocating! Take this bag off my head! I’m claustrophobic,” the 60-year-old reporter who had become an outspoken critic of the Saudi regime headed by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said, according to the Al-Jazeera report. The report goes on to say that Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 by means of a plastic bag pulled over his head until Khashoggi did, in fact, suffocate to death.
Erika Booth, a mom from North Carolina, has declared war against her 12-year-old daughter’s charter school over the dress code. Erika recently joined a pre-existing lawsuit filed by Bonnie Peltier, another mother with a child at the school, for the same reason.
According to Erika, the legal war started when her 12-year-old (who she preferred not to name) was offered three uniform choices for the school year. She should wear a skirt, a skort, or a jumper. What the 12-year-old was not allowed to wear was any form of pants or shorts.
According to Pop Sugar, Charter Day School, located in Leland, NC, forbids all female students from wearing pants or shorts. The dress code left a bad taste in Erika’s mouth, so she was thrilled when she learned a previous lawsuit about the same issue had already been filed.
Malibu residents like Gerard Butler realize that their homes have either been burned or are in peril and are urging the public to please make financial donations rather than donations of supplies like food and bottled water to please instead send funds if you can directly through the LAPD website so they can immediately get desperately needed supplies like hydration packs.
TMZ is reporting that Butler returned to the Malibu site where his house was to find its charred remains. The actor said he finds the whole thing “heartbreaking,” but still reached out to thank the LAFD for all that they are doing. He asked that anyone who can help should please make a contribution through the LAFD website, Support LAFD.
Fox 11 wrote about how to help those affected by the fire, and they also mentioned the need for funds to buy more hydration packs.
The most destructive fires in California’s history continue to rage on in both northern and southern parts of the state. By Sunday night, thousands of homes had been engulfed by the massive inferno, and the rise of strong winds across California threatened to add to the tally as firefighters desperately fought the flames.
According to ABC News, the death toll of the fires has risen to 31, after six people were found dead on Sunday.
“This week, California has experienced the most destructive fires we have seen in its history. There are 196,000 acres burned, thousands of homes and dozens of lives lost,” Chief Scott Jalbert of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said early on Sunday.
On Veterans Day, former U.S. President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush were honored for their service to U.S. military veterans since they’ve left the White House.
As reported by the Associated Press, the couple was awarded the National Constitution Center’s 2018 Liberty Medal at the Philadelphia History Museum on Sunday, with former Vice President Joe Biden presenting them with the award.
The former president shared that he was proud to be “following in his father’s footsteps once again,” and honored to be recognized for the work he has been doing since the end of his presidential term in 2009. Bush’s father, George H. W. Bush, was awarded the medal alongside another former president, Bill Clinton, back in 2006.
