A 5-year-old child in a remote Alaskan village carried a toddler a half-mile to a neighbor’s house in bitter sub-zero temperatures after they were left home alone, police said Friday. The older child was frightened after the power went out at the home, so wearing only socks and light clothing, he picked up the younger child and started walking through temperatures that dipped 31 degrees below zero in the village of Venetie, Alaska, according to state troopers. Both children suffered cold-weather injuries, according to an Alaska Department of Safety news release.

My gosh! Now compare/contrast the noble behavior of this five year old in Alaska to Hunter Biden taking care of his dead brothers widow.......And then Joe says "Jack", or was it "Fat Jack"?

This is one seriously tough kid!I I hope he and his sibling are adopted by a truly loving family. His 37 year mother on the other hand should be Venezuela.

I was skeptical when I read -31 degrees, but I looked it up and Wednesday the high was -17, low was -41, on Thursday the high was -39, low was -45, Friday high was -43 low -46. THAT is insane. Since libs think we can control the climate, we better do something to warm that area up! The Average temp for this time of year is high -1, low -11

The mom, or whoever she is, is a piker compared to some in small rural communities. I know of three kids 10 through 16 who’s parents split up and simply left the kids to fend for themselves for a year. Terrific, huh?

The children were lucky there were no polar bears out and about. Polar bears consider humans to be a natural part of their diet.

Those temperatures are typical of the year I spent up there. You get used to it, and Alaskans are pretty tough anyway. Plus the five year old knew there was no help available, so he took it upon himself to take care of business. That's how we became the dominant species on the planet. In a world before 911 everyone did that. Good for him.

Good kid. It's surprising what you can do based on where you grew up. I was raised in similar temperatures and did some quick comparisons in my head. I've done fast walks in a t-shirt and socks in temperatures colder than -31F, but only to take out the garbage or start the car. If you're not properly dressed, anything below -10 Fahrenheit becomes a matter of time and distance. You know you're on the clock, and you have to keep moving. Air flow is your other enemy. If you walk too fast, you get too cold that much quicker. If the wind picks up substantially, you're going to have a bad time. Last winter I went out to start my car wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and Crocs. It was morning and still dark. At first, the car wouldn't start. Then it caught badly, with the engine making a terrible grinding sound. I shut it off immediately and thought, "Super. My car is broken." Then I looked at the outside temperature gauge in the dashboard. It said -49F. My next thought was, "Great. Now my temperature gauge is broken too!" I literally tapped it like a pilot hoping for more fuel in an old war movie. By this time, the water from the snow that had melted inside my Crocs during the walk to the car was beginning to re-freeze around my feet, and my sleep-addled brain finally got the message: My car wasn't broken. It really was that cold. The engine had simply frozen. Seven months later I was sitting in a car in Las Colinas, Texas, and I looked at the outside temperature gauge. It said 109F. I took a picture and sent it to my family up north. We all laughed because none of us had ever seen a temperature that high before. That second temperature seemed stranger to me than the first.

It was -5 at our cabin in the Colorado mountains in late October, and we were driving on an unplowed road many miles from 'the hard road'. We were reasonably well dressed, and in a 4WD vehicle, but aware that the temps were potentially deadly if things when awry. -31 is a lot worse, and they were certainly not dressed for it. This makes me think of the old poster, "He ain't heavy. He's my brother." The older folks here will remember it. I think it was for Boy's Town.

Here is the quick story on how our Russian children became available for adoption. In February, 1994, in the middle of the night in Moscow, Russia, the two little children were left alone while the parents went drinking. The 5 year old girl took her 22 month old brother outside, looking for the parents. (The motivation was probably the lack of food in the apartment.) A police officer found them wandering the streets, the parents lost custody, and the two little ones were placed in an orphanage, called a Children's Home. During their 27 months in the Children's Home, their parents visited them just once. We brought them to the U.S. on Mother's Day, 1996.

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame's status as a shoo-in to win a congressional seat in northern New Mexico is now deeply imperiled amid charges she's an outsider from Washington who knows too little about the district she seeks to represent. Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state's 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population. Lujan, who has held the seat since 2009, announced a run for Senate in April last year, drawing prominent Hispanic candidates into the primary.

A political Halley’s Comet flew over the Capitol this week. Even politics junkies averted their gaze. The Senate impeachment trial of a sitting president, just the third such event in the history of the republic, strangely acted as soporific rather than stimulant. Richard Burr led a contingent of colleagues using fidget spinners to stay alert. Rand Paul allegedly drew a picture of the capitol building as House members orated. A bipartisan group of senators reportedly violated rules by wearing Apple watches or using digital devices. Others stretched and paced. A New York Times sketch artist captured Jim Risch, a Republican from Idaho, asleep. Many Americans imitated him on their couches.

A CNN reporter broadcasts from Wuhan, China, on the recent viral outbreak. There is nobody near who could possibly infect him ­— unless the cameraman has Guinness Book of Records coughs and sneezes. So why does he insist on wearing a blue surgical mask while talking? It’s called “drama,” which is badly needed, because there appears to be nothing very special about this outbreak of the 2019-nCoV or Wuhan ­virus. It should actually be called the DvV, or Déjà vu Virus, because we have been through these hysterias before.

At least two of the FBI’s surveillance applications to secretly monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page lacked probable cause, according to a newly declassified summary of a Justice Department assessment released Thursday by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). The DOJ's admission essentially means that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant authorizations to surveil Page, when stripped of the FBI's misinformation, did not meet the necessary legal threshold and should never have been issued. Democrats, including California Rep. Adam Schiff, had previously insisted the Page FISA warrants met "rigorous" standards for probable cause, and mocked Republicans for suggesting otherwise.

If Rep. Adam Schiff was around in 1864, he would have orchestrated the impeachment of President Abraham Lincoln. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff, D-Calif., and his confederate impeachment managers demand that President Trump be removed from office because the president did something that might advantage him politically in the upcoming election. This, they claim was an impeachable “abuse of power.” On the floor of the Senate, Schiff exclaimed that Trump wanted “to cheat” in the November presidential election by asking Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son over potential corruption. Democrats are the only ones who are buying this thin gruel.

Congratulations, Virginia – you overcame the terrible peril that was patriots rallying in Richmond to peacefully express your disgust with Governor Jolson Klanrobe and his legislative back-up dancers’ attempt to strip you of your rights. You came, you saw, you protested, and then you swept up. But the fight’s not over. It’s just starting. But know this – you will win. Let’s begin with a basic principle: You have no moral obligation to respect or obey unconstitutional actions by a government. None. And when a government acts outside its constitutional limits, you do not merely have the right but the sacred duty to reject and replace it.

It’s his prominent supporters….and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women.’ She concluded: ‘I think people need to pay attention because we want, hopefully, to elect a president who’s going to try to bring us together and not either turn a blind eye, or actually reward the kind of insulting, attacking, degrading behavior that we’ve seen… it’s all just baloney

Margaret Court is the greatest Australian female tennis player ever. In fact, she’s one of the very best female tennis players ever from any country, having won more Grand Slam singles titles than any other woman. Fifty years ago, Court accomplished one the most remarkable feats ever in women’s tennis — a calendar year “grand slam.” In other words, she won the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open in the same year. At this year’s Australian Open, Australian tennis officials intend to honor Court’s achievement. However, the decision to do so has generated controversy. Why? Because of Court’s views on LGBT issues.

We are facing an impeachment shutdown — the road-blocking of all our government’s institutions for an impeachment that is going nowhere. It will inflame passions, divide our country further and accomplish nothing of any significance. The cast is now complete with shady characters, wronged bureaucrats and impeachment prosecutors preening for their close-ups on national TV. As in 1998 and 1999, there is going to be a reckoning when this is all over. I helped to defend President Clinton when the country wasted time then on another impeachment that went nowhere. The president certainly was not innocent of all of the accusations, and he lost his law license and paid significant fines

House Democrats launched into lengthy arguments that broke little ground, if any, in President Trump's impeachment trial Wednesday -- as the head impeachment manager, California Rep. Adam Schiff, suggested that Russians could attack the U.S. and insisted that removing Trump from office was necessary because the integrity of the 2020 election could not be "assured." Trump's lawyers sat by, waiting their turn, as the president blasted the proceedings from afar, threatening jokingly to face off with the Democrats by coming to "sit right in the front row and stare at their corrupt faces."

More than 30% of inmates in Canadian prisons are Indigenous—even though aboriginal people make up just 5% of the country’s population, according to new figures released by a federal watchdog. In a scathing report published on Tuesday, the correctional investigator of Canada, Dr Ivan Zinger, described Indigenous overrepresentation in the country’s jails and prisons as “nothing short of a national travesty”. The figure is highest in the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, where Indigenous people make up 54% of the prison population.(Snip) Indigenous inmates also serve more of their sentence before being granted parole–and reoffend at much higher levels than non-indigenous inmates.

Even cats could be running out of lives to while away under passengers’ seats at 30,000 feet. The US Department of Transportation on Wednesday proposed that only specially trained dogs qualify as service animals, which must be allowed in a passenger plane cabin at no charge.
