President Donald Trump arrived back at the White House on Friday, December 15, pointing to his new hat, which read “Presidential Helicopter Squadron.” According to the remarks released by the White House via the Office of the Press Secretary, Trump spoke in Quantico, Virginia, at the Marine Corps Air Facility to Marine Helicopter Squadron One. Although Trump didn’t speak to the press upon his return to the South Lawn, he let the words “Presidential Helicopter Squadron” on his white baseball cap speak for him.
However, the words that the president spoke during his speech are what’s gaining buzz online, with President Trump claiming that no other president would wear such a hat.
“THE PRESIDENT: So they gave me this hat. It says: ‘Presidential Helicopter Squadron. Would you wear it? Now, no other President would do this. But I will, because I’m proud of you. (Applause.) I’m proud of you. What the hell.”
On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission gathered for their December Open Commissions Meeting, and, much to the chagrin of internet users the world over, elected to overturn the Obama-era net neutrality laws established in 2015. Central to the concept of net neutrality is the idea that internet service providers should not be able to slow or restrict access to content on the internet. Yesterday’s passing of the Restoring Internet Freedom Order, the brainchild of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, strips the federal commission of its ability to govern the internet and affords ISPs a greater amount of leeway in terms of how much and which parts of the web users may access. Though a widely disliked topic, United States Congressman Steve Scalise later voiced his support for the act through Twitter.

Landyn Melton was only three years old when his frozen body was found on the porch of his home in Morganton, North Carolina. The toddler died from the cold, but it appears he didn’t leave this world without a fight. “Claw marks” on the front door near where his body was found indicate he tried to get back into the house where it was warm, according to the reports. Inside the house is also where his mother was allegedly “passed out” after doing drugs, according to The New York Post.
The boy was found dead back in March, but his mother has “dodged” jail time this week after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter, reports the New York Post. Landyn was discovered when a neighbor saw his lifeless body on the front porch of his home as they walked past the house.
Donald Trump frequently makes “racially charged” statements and doesn’t know how to interact with minorities, departed White House adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman said after she was ousted from the Trump administration.
Omarosa rose to fame thanks to Trump’s reality show The Apprentice and became an important surrogate for Trump during his unlikely rise through the Republican primary and his election victory in November. She was rewarded with a job inside the White House, but she was fired this week amid disputed circumstances.
Now, the reality television star is bringing new drama to Donald Trump with an interview in which she admits that Trump made “racially charged” statements in many of their interactions.
“Donald Trump is racial, but he is not a racist,” Omarosa told ABC News Nightline. “Yes, I will acknowledge many of the exchanges, particularly in the last six months, have been racially charged. Do we, then, just stop and label him as a racist? No.”
Following Tuesday’s stunning defeat of Republican candidate — and accused child molester— Roy Moore in the Alabama United States Senate special election, the chances that Donald Trump will face impeachment jumped to the highest point of his nearly 11 months in office so far, according to an expert writing for the online political magazine Slate.
The Slate“Impeach-o-Meter” maintained by the magazine’s chief news blogger Ben Mathis-Lilley rated Trump’s chances of impeachment at a stunning 55 percent after Moore’s defeat by Democrat Doug Jones, a former prosecutor who became the first Democrat to win an Alabama Senate election in 25 years.
Despite the allegations against Moore, which came from five women who accused him of improper contact with them when they were in their teens — including one who was 14 at the time she says Moore touched her sexually — Trump delivered a full endorsement of Moore and even campaigned for him at a rally held in northwestern Florida, just over the Alabama state line.
During the final leg of Trump’s campaign for the presidency, powerhouse attorney Lisa Bloom allegedly sought “paydays” for the women who came forward to tell their stories of alleged sexual misconduct that they claimed came from Donald Trump. An explosive new report coming from The Hill on Friday claimed that Bloom worked to arrange compensation for these women by approaching campaign donors as well as tabloid media outlets.
These alleged “paydays” were not just for the women who would tell their stories, but it also included a commission for her, according to this new report. She was reportedly successful, as in one case the report indicates that Bloom managed for one of these women to have their mortgage paid off. Bloom is also accused of attempting to secure a six-figure payoff for one of the other women, but that woman reportedly declined to come forward despite being offered $750,000.
The Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal net neutrality on December 14. Dismantling the so-called net neutrality regulations will grant broadband providers more power than ever. Companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast will now be able to charge more, block certain websites, and censor content. These corporations now have the power to redefine, reshape, and modify the entire country’s internet experience.
From the very beginning, the FCC has been determined to repeal net neutrality, despite the overwhelming, largely bipartisan, push back from the public. Social media websites and news aggregators like Reddit have been flooded with pro-net neutrality submissions for the past couple of weeks. Almost everyone online seems to be for net neutrality, which has, reportedly, prompted the FCC to come up with a very bizarre and probably illegal way to spread anti-net-neutrality propaganda.
Rebecca Johnson, widow of Kentucky GOP State Representative Dan Johnson, says that her husband killed himself earlier this week based on an “unfounded accusation” and an expose by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting (KyCIR) intended to “crucify” the self-proclaimed Christian “bishop.” In an interview Friday, Mrs. Johnson, whose husband shot himself to death on December 13, claimed that the allegations that the Kentucky GOP lawmaker had sexually assaulted 17-year-old Maranda Richmond were simply untrue. She went on to add that the people behind the sensational story acted as “a lynch mob funded by out-of-state money,” reports NBC News.
“It’s really an outrageous, unfounded accusation, and there has never been a criminal investigation. We didn’t even know about this until it came out.”
Macaque monkeys, also known as snow monkeys, are getting sexual gratification from wild deer, and scientists aren’t completely sure why. As Inverse reports, there have been viral videos going around showing adolescent female snow monkeys mounting sika deer in a sexual manner. A team of researchers has been investigating this behavior and their findings have been published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
The research has shown that it was primarily adolescent female macaques who were mounting the deer. There are a couple of reasons why these teenage primates might be engaging in this sexual behavior. Firstly, sex with male macaques can be life-threatening for them, so they could be looking for a safer way to relieve their sexual tension. This is one of the reasons why they often see female same-sex encounters within this species.
Authorities are investigating whether human remains found in Missoula, Montana belong to the Skelton brothers who vanished from Morenci, Michigan during a Thanksgiving holiday visit with their father in 2010. The remains, determined to be from children, are now undergoing forensic testing to uncover their origin.
Seven years ago, Tanner, 5, Alexander, 7, and Andrew Skelton, 9, were visiting their father, John Skelton, for Thanksgiving when they disappeared. They have not been seen or heard from since.
A search warrant posted on the KTMF TV website states that in September of this year, a rental property cleaning crew found a box containing human bones and teeth. After authorities examined the box’s contents, it was determined the remains belonged to three children around the same age as the Skelton brothers when they vanished.
North Korea’s recent missile tests have shown to the rest of the world that Kim Jong-un’s hermit country is not planning to take a diplomatic approach with the United States of America. The growing tension between Washington and Pyongyang is escalating with each passing day but according to US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile (ICMB) with a nuclear warhead is still incapable of reaching the mainland USA. However, test results from last month’s missile launch apparently show that the missiles fired from North Korea can reach the mainland USA.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that the American analysts are working on understanding North Korea’s November 29 launch, but he does not believe Kim’s ICBM posed an imminent threat to the United States of America.
“It has not yet shown to be a capable threat against us right now… we’re still doing the forensic analysis.”
When Bethany Lynn Stephens failed to return home after taking her two pet pit bulls for a walk, family members grew worried and went looking for her.
What they found was gruesome. Stephens’ dead body was found in the woods, covered in blood and having suffered what authorities said were grievous injuries. The cause of death was even more disturbing — police believe her own dogs mauled her to death.
As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, the wounds were consistent with an attack by the two pit bulls, which they said were large and aggressive.
“It appeared the attack was a violent attack initiated by the victims’ dogs while the victim was out for a walk with the dogs,” Sheriff James Agnew said (via WTVR).
Agnew said that Stephens suffered serious injuries to her face and throat. He believes that the 22-year-old Virginia woman was taken to the ground during the attack, lost consciousness, and then was mauled to death.
The CDC, which is the nation’s top health agency, may need to keep a thesaurus handy when drafting up documents for next year’s budget after the Trump administration has handed down a list of seven forbidden words and phrases. These words are common and used often among health officials at the CDC, leaving those working on the budget for next year hard-pressed to find an alternative to words like “fetus” or “transgender,” which are two of the forbidden words.
These seven banned words are not to show up anywhere in the budget that the CDC is preparing this time of year along with many other government agencies. But unlike the other agencies, the CDC now has seven very commonly used words and phrases that are banned from appearing within that budget. These banned words are especially common in the medical and science fields, which are the fields making up the nation’s leading health agency.
In our usual Christmas tale, reindeer supposedly are the ones pulling Santa Claus’ sleigh. But a complete turn around of events happened in Oregon just recently.
Clad in red, Jeff Johnston, later on identified as a firefighter in a local district of Oregon, was caught on video trying to reach out to a trapped reindeer on a frozen golf course pond in Sunriver, Oregon.
The reindeer seemed to be petrified. Through its might, the reindeer slipped and glided, and its legs completely bent. It could not get all its legs underneath him, going nowhere.
Then came in firefighter Johnston, as reported by AP News, astride a new ice-rescue sled that was as bright red as the suit he wore, and as the nose on Rudolph the reindeer, which guided Santa’s sleigh one foggy Christmas Eve. Johnson gently nudged the reindeer to the edge of the pond and freed the trapped reindeer.
Bernard “Barry” Sherman, founder of Canadian drug company Apotex Inc., and his wife Honey were found dead under mysterious circumstances in their Toronto, Canada, home. On Friday, Canadian police launched a full investigation into the deaths after a real estate agent found the deceased couple in the basement.
Police have not officially named Mr. and Mrs. Sherman as the victims found in the home as medical examiners removed two unidentified bodies last night. However, Ontario health minister Eric Hoskins did issue a statement acknowledging the couple’s death, describing Barry and his wife as “wonderful human beings.”
“I am beyond words right now,” wrote Hoskins, as reported by CNBC.“Incredible philanthropists, great leaders in health care. A very, very sad day.”
During a press conference, Constable David Hopkinson withheld many details of the investigation, except that the deaths were unusual.
“The circumstances of their death appear suspicious, and we are treating it that way,” said Constable David Hopkinson, per a report from Business Insider.
Memphis officials have charged Sherra Wright-Robinson, ex-wife of former NBA star Lorenzen Wright with his 2010 murder.
Wright-Robinson was arrested in Riverside County, California Friday night on a fugitive from justice warrant. She is charged with first degree murder and conspiracy.
The arrest is the second this month in what had been a cold case since Wright’s bullet-riddled, decomposing body was found in a Memphis suburb July 27, 2010.
A grand jury indicted Billy R. Turner, a Shelby County, Tennessee resident on first degree murder charges. Turner, who has pleaded not guilty, was arrested earlier this month and is being held on $1 million bond. Memphis Police Director Michael Rollins would not discuss what the connection was between Wright-Robinson and Turner.
The discovery last month in a Mississippi lake 75 miles east of Memphis in Walnut, Mississippi of the gun that killed Wright appears to have been the development that led to the arrests.
“Paycheck President” Trump might not spend 14 days at Mar-a-Lago for Christmas and New Year’s festivities after all. Instead, expect President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and Barron Trump to head down to Mar-a-Lago on Friday, December 22, leaving perhaps on New Year’s Day. According to the Palm Beach Post, an alert for “VIP Movement” from the Federal Aviation Administration initially alerted pilots to expect a very important person to arrive in Palm Beach on Wednesday, December 20, with expectations of the big wigs leaving on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
U.S. President Donald Trump departed from his prepared remarks yesterday at the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy to again mock his frenemies in the mainstream news media. The president was on hand to speak at the graduation ceremonies for law enforcement officers at the academy’s Quantico, Virginia, facility.
According to its website, the FBI National Academy provides an invitation-only, rigorous 10-week course for law enforcement managers from around the country and the world which covers a broad array of training and is meant to boost standards, knowledge, and cooperation.
In his wide-ranging address the transcript for which is posted at WhiteHouse.gov, the president underscored that he has the backs of police officers, declaring that as long as he is in the White House, cops “will have a true friend and loyal champion.”
It has happened again, another beachcomber has come across a human foot tucked neatly inside a shoe, severed from the body from which it once belonged. This find was in Canada, but the U.S. has also found their fair share of severed feet washing up on the Pacific Northwest shores.
A foot washing ashore still tucked neatly into its shoe is a gruesome find for any beachcomber, but this time around the beachcomber picked up the foot, which was still attached to bare bones up to the knee, and he took it home. While there wasn’t any sinister agenda behind this, once his dog found the foot, Mike Johns, 56, said he brought the foot home before reporting it.
David Dauzat will spend the next five decades in prison for beheading his wife in front of their young children and then stuffing her head in a freezer.
The 24-year-old Texas man pleaded guilty to killing 21-year-old Natasha Dauzat back in 2016, the New York Daily News reported. Dauzat took a plea deal that allowed him to avoid going to trial and instead receive a single 50-year sentence. The prosecutor, Michael Jarrett, said they had the couple’s young children in mind when they arranged the deal, not wanting to have them go through what could have been an extended trial.
Family members said David Dauzat was acting strangely just before his wife’s murder, with David’s brother saying he received a series of strange phone calls. In a later phone call, David Dauzat admitted that he had killed his wife while the couple’s 1-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter were home.
