The flights will arrive at military bases in California, Texas and Nebraska.

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said Monday that he will vote to acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment, making official a vote that was never in doubt. “I think you know how I’m going to vote,” the Oklahoma Republican said in a speech on the Senate floor. “I’m going to vote to acquit the president on both articles of impeachment.” Inhofe said House Democrats had presented no evidence that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine to force that country to conduct investigations that might help Trump politically. The House investigation centered around the partial transcript of a phone...

    In a historic act of compassion and justice the Nebraska State Department of Vital Records refused to deny my aborted baby Liam Michael Allen a Certificate of Non-Viable Birth because he was aborted. On December 5th, 2019 in Lincoln, NE, I was handed this healing certificate, officially recognizing Liam and archiving his existence within state records. Having met all the statutory requirements of NE Statue 71-607 (NE LB 1040), accept that Liam was aborted not miscarried, Vital Records chose to do the right thing and approve the application. The moment I was handed the certificate I felt an immense wave...

    Fox News Host Tucker Carlson dedicated a segment of his show Tuesday night to torching the Wall Street billionaire Paul Singer. Carlson’s show featured an investigation into how hedge funds, like the the one Singer manages, have destroyed American towns and economies for the sake of lining their pockets. Carlson described how Singer and his hedge fund Elliott Management has made billions of dollars from their style of “vulture capitalism,” exploiting financially distressed countries and American companies. “Elliott Management has made billions by buying large stakes in American companies, then firing workings, driving up short-term share prices, and in some...

    Equipment World's Better Roads ^ | November 11, 2019 | Don McLoud
    With few exceptions, states are losing the battle with aging bridges in need of repair or replacement. Even states with low percentages of bridges rated poor are finding it difficult to keep up with bridge and road systems that in many cases are 50 years old or older. Utah, which ranks fourth for the lowest percentage of poor bridges, programs a bridge for repair or replacement in the year after it drops to a poor rating, completing the project within four or five years. The Utah Department of Transportation notes, though, that the number of bridges falling from good to...

"We're fighting for the hardworking Nebraska families left behind in the GOP agenda -- and they are -- and for Nebraska farmers struggling under Trump's trade recklessness...

    been as head-spinning as the social conservatives and evangelical Christians who now consider Mr. Trump a hero. Many of the conservative women who once saw him as a boor have come to believe that for too long they were focused on the wrong qualities in presidential candidates. They wanted someone pious when they should have been looking for someone who could throw punches. “I endorsed Rick Santorum in 2012. And Mike Huckabee,” said Penny Young Nance, who signed the statement in 2016 of anti-abortion activists opposing Mr. Trump. “But at the end of the day, I’m not sure those guys...

    WASHINGTON — In 2016, Erick Erickson could not have been clearer. Donald Trump was “a racist” and “a fascist.” It was no wonder, Mr. Erickson wrote, that “so many people with swastikas in their Twitter profile pics” supported him. “I will not vote for Donald Trump. Ever,” he insisted, adding his voice to the chorus of Never Trump Republicans. Last week, Mr. Erickson, a well-known conservative blogger, titled one of his pieces “I Support the President.” In three years, he had come completely around, a transformation that is a testament to President Trump’s remarkable consolidation of support inside the Republican...

    The Maine senator was unequivocal in her statements, which came after a firefighters memorial service in Augusta on Saturday morning, joining Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Ben Sasse, R-Nevada, in breaking rank with GOP support for the president. “I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent,” Collins said. “It’s completely inappropriate.” The president’s comments came days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, announced a formal impeachment probe into his attempt to solicit foreign help in an election, which is illegal and considered by many lawmakers to be a foundational threat...

    On August 12, 2019, at about 9:52 p.m., in Omaha, Nebraska, an apartment resident named Mark had some friends visiting him. He heard persistent knocking at the door.

He locked the door and went to get his rifle, a Ruger AR 556 (AR-15 clone). In the video, just as he returns, the door is kicked in with a rear spear type kick.

GOP lawmakers are asserting the whistleblower did not have firsthand knowledge of the actions detailed in the complaint and question whether the person had a political agenda. “It doesn’t come from a person with personal knowledge. It’s like I heard these people say this, and now I’m reporting it. I think that is pretty bizarre,” said Sen. John...
