Donald Trump has repeatedly confused the definitions of “weather” and “climate,” as the Independent has noted, but in a wide-ranging interview with the Washington Post newspaper published on Tuesday, Trump made what the paper described as “Trump’s most extensive yet on why he disagrees with the dire National Climate Assessment released by his own administration Friday, which found that climate change poses a severe threat to the health and financial security of Americans, as well as to the country’s infrastructure and natural resources.”
In the Washington Post interview, Trump cited his own “very high level of intelligence” for his denial that climate change is real, or if it is, that it is the result of human actions.
“One of the problems that a lot of people like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence but we’re not necessarily such believers,” Trump told the paper. “You look at our air and our water, and it’s right now at a record clean.”
Conservative Sinclair Broadcast Group is under fire for forcing local TV stations to run a segment defending the use of tear gas on migrant women and children as they attempt to seek asylum in the United States. Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns and operates approximately 175 local TV stations, famously requires stations to run segments catering to the pro-Trump business’ views, according to a report from The Daily Beast.
On Monday, the media group had stations run a commentary from former Trump administration aide and “chief political analyst” Boris Epshteyn during the middle of otherwise objective local news reporting.
“The migrant crisis on our southern border has greatly escalated,” Epshteyn reports in the segment. “This past weekend…. Dozens of migrants attacked U.S. border enforcement by throwing rocks and bottles. Ultimately, American authorities had to use tear gas to stop the attacks.”
In one of his famous Twitter rants, the president of the United States attacked CNN and said he’d like for the US to create a state-run media.
“While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair…”
This is how Trump’s Twitter rant began on Monday. Here’s how it continued. “…and false way. Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!”
The ramifications of this statement are far-reaching. What Donald Trump is essentially suggesting is a state-run media, the likes of which can be found in countries such North Korea, Russia, and Saudi Arabia.
This past September, an experienced skydiving instructor, Brett Bickford, was embarking on a tandem jump with a student. Forty-one-year-old Bickford had 10 years of experience under his belt as a skydiving instructor, having made countless jumps before. No one expected this particular jump to be any different. However, while in mid-air, Bickford became separated from the other diver and ended up falling to his death. According to People, police don’t believe his death was an accident. After a two-month-long investigation, it was determined that Bickford intentionally loosened his safety harness to cause his own death.
Knickers the cow has grown himself right out of the slaughterhouse.
The Australian cow has grown to a height of six feet and four inches tall and tips the scales 3,000 pounds — the same weight as a small car — and is so big that he couldn’t fit into the slaughterhouse. As owner Geoff Pearson told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the 7-year-old Holstein Friesian is about double the height of the average dairy cow.
“He was too big to go into the export plant’s chain,” Pearson said. “We have a high turnover of cattle, and he was lucky enough to stay behind.”
Wedding photographer Katherine Mehta gave one couple a day they will never forget — though likely not in the way they had hoped.
Police in Texas arrested the wedding photographer on Saturday on charges that she had sex with a guest in the reception hall and then urinated on a tree before issuing a bizarre threat to kill the police officers’ families. The New York Post reported on the strange arrest, which took place in a town about 30 miles west of Fort Worth and captured national attention this week.
Police said the 26-year-old Mehta — who goes by Max McIntyre for her photography business — had been hired to take photographs at a wedding being held at The Springs Event Venue in Weatherford, but an off-duty sheriff’s deputy who was working security at the time said she took a break to have sex with a guest inside the event hall. When an officer confronted Mehta and asked her to leave, the situation escalated quickly.
Despite having its biggest champion in the White House, the financial situation of the country’s largest gun-rights group has reportedly worsened in the age of President Donald Trump.
The National Rifle Association suffered a significant $55 million drop in annual revenue last year, The Hill reports, citing tax records. Donations to the NRA are down to $98 million in 2017 from nearly $125 million in 2016, a year that marked a record-breaking haul for the organization, according to the documents, the report states.
Last year, about one-fifth of the NRA’s donations came from one single anonymous donor, who contributed almost $19 million to the group, tax forms show. Additionally, the organization also saw membership dues drop to a five-year low, according to Politico. In 2016, the NRA took in more than $163 million in dues, which dropped to about $128 million last year, according to The Hill, which could signal a decline in public support for the gun-rights group.
Speaking on Tuesday about her use of a private email server to conduct official government business, Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to President Donald Trump, said her practice of doing so in no way resembled similar actions that her father was critical of in the run-up to his election in 2016.
During that campaign between Trump and his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, Trump frequently touted Clinton’s usage of a private email server during her time as secretary of state as a disqualifying feature of her candidacy. Crowds regularly shouted “lock her up” at his rallies, which he regularly encouraged.
Yet earlier this month, the president defended his daughter’s similar usage of private emails for public business, stating that it was dissimilar enough that it wasn’t worth looking into. He also suggested his daughter didn’t know better at the time.
On Monday, 46-year-old Michael Todd Pegram was indicted by a Forsyth County grand jury for abusing eight young boys from Winston-Salem.
Per a report by the Winston-Salem Journal, the charges include 21 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, five counts of first-degree sex offense, one count of attempted first-degree sex offense and one count of statutory sex offense. The offenses occurred between January 1991 and December 2001, with the boys aged between 12- and 16-years-old at the time.
The courts did not specify where the boys met Pegram or where the alleged offenses took place. Further details about the case have not been released by detectives who investigated the case.
Donald Trump liked to remind his supporters of the ingenuity of his plan to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it at his campaign rallies during the 2016 presidential elections. In fact, even early this year, Trump reiterated his belief that America’s neighbor will pay for the wall in some form because, well, that is what he wanted Mexicans to do.
“I believe Mexico will pay for the wall,” Trump said during a brief news conference at Camp David early this year, according to the Guardian.
“I have a very good relationship with Mexico. But yes, in some form, Mexico will pay for the wall.”
The former manager of O.J. Simpson, Norman Pardo, claims that the former NFL great did not act alone in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Page Six reported that Pardo worked with O.J. for nearly 20 years after his acquittal in the infamous murders that divided the nation as to Simpson’s guilt or innocence.
Pardo has allegedly been developing a film that will delve into this information for four years with co-executive producer Dylan Howard reported Page Six.
The entertainment news source reported that the series will be pitched next week to streaming services, cable and premium networks to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the murders of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
“For the first time, the most thorough investigation into the murder ever conducted will be shared with America,” said Pardo, reported Page Six.
Many people have pets in their homes. From dogs and cats to rabbits, guinea pigs, and hamsters, furry friends are a daily part of many people’s lives, and the reasons for this can vary greatly. But whatever the reason, more and more studies are showing the positive influence pet ownership has on people’s lives.
Another new study has just shown that pet owners may be enjoying success in their careers because of their four-legged children. As reported by People, a survey conducted by Banfield Pet Hospital with Kelton Research found a potential link between a successful professional life and having a wagging tail waiting for you at home.
The study surveyed 851 Americans over the age of 18, working in a wide range of different professional fields.
If you thought the airport was a little crowded over Thanksgiving weekend, you were right. According to a new report by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), this holiday weekend marked the busiest time in the history of the organization.
In a report by Business Insider, it was noted that over 2.7 million people went through security checkpoints on Sunday alone, a major milestone for the TSA. That’s roughly an increase of over 16,000 passengers from the last record-breaking day, back in 2004 — again, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. While there have been some seriously busy travel days over the years (Thursdays and Fridays during the summer are particularly swamped), this Sunday is a landmark in the 17-year history of the TSA.
Donald Trump has made no secret of his distaste for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, most recently posting a Twitter message on Wednesday morning, baselessly accusing Mueller of “viciously telling witnesses to lie about facts.”
But in an interview with ABC News on Tuesday, Trump’s 37-year-old daughter Ivanka Trump, who is also a White House assistant to her father, joined the elder Trump is his attack on the Mueller investigation. But some evidence suggests that Ivanka Trump’s call to quickly shut down the Russia investigation comes not simply from concern for her father — but that she could be implicated in the probe herself.
Asked by ABC News interviewer Deborah Roberts whether the Mueller investigation should be allowed to continue, Trump called for the probe to end.
Will Smith’s oldest son, Trey, has traditionally shied away from the spotlight. But the eldest son of the Aladdin star is now speaking out on his love for his family and his unconventional upbringing.
Will Smith recently posted a moving tribute to his son Trey while attending the F1 race in Abu Dhabi, admitting that their relationship was not always easy. Smith revealed that while his son felt abandoned by him, the 26-year-old now calls him his “best friend.” The actor expressed gratitude for the close relationship he now has with his son, as previously shared by the Inquisitr.
In an incredible account provided to the Washington Post, an insider in the Saudi Royal Family revealed that the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was a result of complicated power grabs that surround the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Examples referenced in the report include family members spying on one another and even fooling China into arresting a businessman critical to the regime.
Issues of infighting within the family began almost immediately upon the death of King Abdullah, the half-brother and predecessor of King Salman, in 2015. This triggered a scramble for power between Abdullah’s sons and King Salman and his family as both factions sought to have the upper hand in the government as well as control the wealth of the royal family, according to columnist David Ignatius, who has written extensively about the country and penned the account in an opinion column.
On October 29, a Lion Air jet crashed into the Java sea just off the coast of Jakarta, Indonesia, approximately 13 minutes after taking off from the capital city. Since then, the search has been on for any and all retrievable parts of the aircraft that could help to explain what happened on board.
Shortly afterwards, passengers on the same aircraft’s previous flight expressed their concern over their own flight, on which they experienced major dips in altitude after taking off. Now it appears that investigators have concluded that the aircraft was not airworthy on the previous flight already, and should never have been allowed to continue on the doomed flight, according to Reuters.
The Boeing 737 MAX jet lost contact with ground control about 13 minutes after takeoff, and witnesses saw it nosedive into the ocean. All 189 people on board, including the crew, were killed in the horrific accident.
Members of Paradise High School in California received a welcome gift from a businessman after wildfires devastated the area, according to the Associated Press. Bob Wilson, 90, reached deep into his pockets to donate a generous amount of money to students, teachers, and staff at Paradise High School. He gave each person affiliated with the school $1,000.
Wilson — who is a restaurant owner and real estate developer — is from San Diego, but felt the need to help students from Paradise High School. He arrived in Paradise with two suitcases full of checks, totaling $1.1 million. Hearing heartbreaking stories of students scattered all over — and families still looking for housing — Wilson was urged to act. He told the Associated Press that high school was a carefree time for him.
A home in southeastern Manitoba was burned down to ashes after an overheated laptop ignited nearby combustible materials lying on the desk.
According to a report by CBC News, the unfortunate incident happened on November 21 in Sundown community, located just over 100 kilometers southeast of Winnipeg. After an investigation, the provincial fire commissioner’s office released a statement this week and cited the incident as “accidental, due to an overheated laptop igniting nearby combustibles.”
As the report detailed, the owner of the home, Joyska Tkachyk, told CBC News that the laptop was charging on a desk near paperwork — something which a lot of people do on a regular basis. She also explained that her family runs their business out of home, therefore the desk was used as an office.
The creepy skeleton of a mysterious sea creature has turned up on a beach in New Zealand, reports RT.
The unnerving discovery was made over the weekend by Christchurch resident Hanna Mary, who stumbled upon the dried-up skeleton near the Rakaia Huts in Canterbury while cleaning up the beach of debris after a big storm.
According to the New Zealand Herald, the eerie skeleton — which was found washed up on the beach on Saturday — looks completely out of this world. In fact, Mary herself confessed that initially suspected she had come across “something alien.”
The bizarre sea creature had wings adorned with claws, two long claspers, and a long tail. In addition, the skeleton sported an elongated head and a ferocious-looking mouth, with sharp fangs.
The desiccated remains were a truly frightful sight to behold — scary enough to make Mary scream in dismay when she realized that the object she had picked up in her hand wasn’t a piece of plastic or driftwood.
