A total of eight people died in crashes across the state of Iowa on Monday 185 crashes across the state. Vehicles are seen turning off the road onto snow-covered grassland as

It takes a special kind of stupid to barrel down an icy road during a snow storm.

Toward the latter part of the video, the speed of some of the vehicles is ridiculous. Don´t the Brits know that the white stuff is slippery?

Trucks on an interstate.....not lorries on a motorway.

I have gotten off of the interstate a couple of times when it got too bad to sanely continue. I learned this weather sense by being a small plane pilot for a few decades, understanding that sometimes it is too dangerous to continue.

No matter how inconvenient it may be to not arrive at your intended destination on time, being dead and never getting there is even more inconvenient.

Trump´s Move to End DACA
Program Blocked by Second Judge

Posted By: Attercliffe- 2/13/2018 8:07:43     Post Reply
U.S. President Donald Trump’s move to end a program protecting hundreds of thousands of children of undocumented immigrants from deportation was blocked by a federal judge in Brooklyn, New York. It’s the second time in less than two months that a U.S. judge ruled that rescinding the Obama-era program as proposed would be illegal. U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis ruled Tuesday that the government hasn’t offered legally adequate reasons for ending the program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals -- or DACA. The judge issued a preliminary ruling which ordered the government to keep processing renewal

House Democrats are upping the pressure on the Trump administration to explain apparent inconsistencies in how it handles security clearances. In a Tuesday letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Reps. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and Don Beyer (D-Va.) expressed heightened concerns that top White House officials without permanent security clearances are nonetheless accessing highly classified materials, thereby posing a threat to national security. “Due to the seniority of several White House officials who reportedly have not received positive security clearance adjudications and the extremely

The recently enacted Media law says that it is forbidden to make public any statement that links Poland to Germany’s evil in the Holocaust. Up to three years in prison if you are caught saying “Polish death camps” out loud, especially through the press. So let’s keep this private. Make sure not to pass this around…that the Poles were not innocent bystanders. They were horribly complicit before, during and after. History knows what happened, though my family (and yours too, I’ll bet) needs no books to tell the story or give the number -- 3-miilion Polish Jews slaughtered one way or another. Most of

A BENEFITS cheat fraudulently claimed handouts while hiding tens of thousands in 12 undeclared bank accounts. Mother-of-four Abida Khan had almost £40,000 savings yet claimed income support housing benefit and council tax relief after falsely declaring she had only £650 in the bank. She was overpaid almost £30,000 before being caught in an investigation by the Department of Work and Pensions. The fraudulent claims began after Khan, 52, split up with her husband, Teesside Magistrates´ Court heard.

FBI director Christopher Wray said Tuesday that the White House was given four separate reports about disgraced former aide Rob Porter´s security clearance investigation – with the first heads-up coming 11 months ago. The bombshell development could put White Houe Chief of Staff John Kelly and White House Counsel Don McGahn on the hot seat as they face new questions about what they knew and when they knew it. Responding to a question from Oregon Democratic Sen.

US President Donald Trump has spoken with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin about North Korea´s nuclear program, the Israel-Palestine conflict and Sunday´s tragic plane crash outside Moscow. The Kremlin said the two leaders discussed some aspects of the Middle East peace process in the telephone conversation before Putin´s meeting with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in the Russian capital. They also discussed North Korea´s bid to develop nuclear weapons, with the White House explaining President Trump had ´reiterated the importance´ of ensuring the Stalinist dictatorship is denuclearized.

Theresa May, Donald Trump and Angela Merkel were all depicted in less-than-flattering light during the annual Rose Monday street parades across south and western Germany today. The parades, held in traditional carnival strongholds like Cologne, Duesseldorf and Mainz, usually draw huge crowds of locals and tourists alike. The costly and intricately built floats often feature huge caricature puppets of politicians, poking fun at current events. This year, creators spared no expense in ensuring that German leaders as well as the British Prime Minister and the U.S. President were portrayed with uncanny likeness.

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle were in attendance on Monday as their portraits were unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. While President Obama´s striking portrait by Kehinde Wiley garnered audible gasps of awe from the audience, Michelle´s portrait was not as warmly welcomed.

Shouldn’t official portraits of America’s presidents and first ladies attempt to resemble them? The point of these artistic exercises might seem archaic in the modern age, where photography can take the place of the artist. That might be the impulse that drove the portrait choices made for Michelle Obama’s remembrance, unveiled earlier this morning in a ceremony at the Smithsonian:(Snip for video)The audience erupted in applause, but the head-scratching began in earnest almost immediately afterward. Who is the woman in the portrait? It only bears a generic resemblance to the former First Lady, if that, HuffPost reporter Sam Stein noted: Sam

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday "sexism" and a "macho atmosphere" helped doom Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said during a discussion at Columbia University. The liberal-leaning associate justice, who is 84 years old, shared a stage with CNN reporter Poppy Harlow and took a long pause before continuing.

Monday morning, the Smithsonian´s National Portrait Gallery unveiled their official portraits of former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. And while both portraits are the work of avant garde contemporary artists, in this case they might be just a touch too avant garde. Barack Obama´s portrait was done by pop artist Kehinde Wiley, who is well known for his hyper-realistic portraits of African American men and women, often done in the style of the Old Masters or with backgrounds familiar to fans of classical, "old world" European art. Wiley recreated Obama´s likeness in his trademark hyper-realistic way, with Obama

I´m gonna go out on a limb here: I generally like the Obama official portrait. It´s an odd style, but it expresses him and what´s more, it reflects the art of his era. (snip) Here´s the problem: It´s not drawn very well. The work shows a lack of skill in the basic rendering of an image. The hands are out of proportion in size, even placed in the foreground, overly big. One might be able to write that off as intentional. But the front hand itself has problems in construction, at least if the aim is to create a realistic

President Trump has proposed replacing some food stamp grants with actual food. This has curiously enraged liberals, who you would think would be delighted to see "hungry" people getting food.The Trump administration is proposing a major shake-up in one of the country´s most important "safety net" programs, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps. Under the proposal, most SNAP recipients would lose much of their ability to choose the food they buy with their SNAP benefits.But if you like your supermarket, you can keep your supermarket, right?

CNN ran an absurd story Saturday afternoon, seemingly praising the sister of one the world’s most evil dictators for “stealing the show” at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The piece starts off, saying, “If ´diplomatic dance´ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un´s younger sister would be favored to win gold.” Hailing Kim Yo Jong as North Korea’s “answer” to Ivanka Trump, CNN claims that “with a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea's presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.”

Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned liberal activist, plans on cobbling together a group of experts Monday night to discuss Trump’s mental health and his nuclear ambitions. It’s part of his mission to oust Trump. He used various social media platforms in October 2017 to launch a “need to impeach” Trump movement.
