    “In the United States Senate I will fight with President Trump for the increased safety of the American people and I will not mince words when it comes to calling out radical Islamic terrorism for the threat that it is,” he continued. “I am committed to implementing the President’s travel ban, putting an end to sanctuary cities, building the wall and making America safer.”
  • SCOTUS To Lower Courts On The Travel Ban: Knock It Off

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12/6/17 | Kevin Daley
    The U.S. Supreme Court appears somewhat irritated with federal courts that have repeatedly barred the Trump administration from enforcing immigration policies halting the entry of certain classes of migrants and refugees. The high court’s latest orders sent three clear signals to lower courts, all of which are positive signs for President Donald Trump. First, the Supreme Court is quite clearly expressing its view that the government will prevail on the merits of this dispute. The Court would not grant an application with these facts if a majority of the justices did not believe the administration will ultimately be vindicated. As...

    Judicial Watch ^ | 12/5/17 | Staff
    Judicial Watch today released two productions (335 pages and 44 pages) of Justice Department (DOJ) documents showing strong support by top DOJ officials for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to enforce President Trump’s Middle East travel ban executive order. In one email, Andrew Weissmann, one of Robert Mueller’s top prosecutors and formerly the Obama-era Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section, applauds Yates writing: “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.” Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the...
  • SST that could fly from London to NY in just over 3 hours gets a $10 million boost from JAL

    Flight times from London to New York could be slashed to just 3 hours 15 minutes by 2025, thanks to a $10 million (£7.45 million) investment from Japan Airlines. Boom Supersonic is developing a 55-seat passenger plane that it says will halve flight times and will be faster, quieter and more affordable to fly than Concorde. As part of the deal Japan's number two carrier has the option to purchase up to 20 Boom aircraft and will provide its knowledge and experience as an airline to hone the aircraft design and help refine the passenger experience.

    Today, the United States Supreme Court upheld the law. Specifically they decided that the travel ban, which we’ve written about often, instituted by President Trump can move forward. Via Legal Insurrection: The Supreme Court will allow President Trump’s Third Travel Ord to take full effect, the Justices ruled in two Orders Monday afternoon staying lower court rulings enjoining the Travel Order President Trump’s Third Travel Order restricted entry of nationals from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela.

    If you're an aspiring nurse or are already working in the profession but looking for a change of pace, becoming a cruise nurse can be an appealing opportunity. Especially for someone who isn't tied down to responsibilities on land. Being a nurse on a cruise ship is not unlike working in a busy ER or clinic setting – except that you're in the middle of the ocean on your way to some exotic locale. If you think you might like to hop aboard a career as a cruise nurse, here's what you need to know. Licensing And Requirements The qualifications...
  • Thanksgiving travelers to stuff I-15 with up to 45-minute delays

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | November 20, 2017 | Lee Davidson
    Early Thanksgiving travelers are expected to stuff Interstate 15 with heavy traffic and delays this week. The Utah Department of Transportation is predicting heavy delays — of up to 45 minutes — on Interstate 15 along the Wasatch Front during the evening commute on Wednesday, as many people head out of town or escape from work a bit early for the holiday. UDOT said its engineers expect a 25 percent increase in traffic on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, compared to a typical weekday commute of about 200,000 cars per day. It expects heavier than normal traffic on Tuesday from...

    Eater ^ | November 15, 2017 | Coral Sisk
    It’s easy to get lost in the idea of FICO Eataly World, dubbed by many in the media as the “Disney World of food.” The park, located 30 minutes east of Bologna, Italy and open to the public today, is less of a Disney World and more of a industrial showroom and souped-up mall food court with contrasting surprises. There’s a dairy plant and outdoor livestock stalls housing more than 200 cows, goats, and chickens. There’s a mini-plot of forest land that’s home to truffle dogs (aka some of the sweetest Labradors around) who show guests how they can sniff...

    The six fully enclosed cabins for its Boeing 777 jets feature seats that recline into flat beds and a 32-inch television. These virtual windows - which are used in some cruise ships - project the view from outside the aircraft using real-time camera technology. "Emirates pioneered the First Class private suite concept back in 2003, and today it's the industry benchmark when it comes to first class travel". Emirates, the largest airline in the world, unveiled a new first class suite on the first day of the Dubai Air Show for its Boeing 777 fleet- and said it is rolling...

    The Vail Daily ^ | November 1, 2017 | Ben Trollinger
    In the winter, when Interstate 70 shuts down at exit 205 due to car crashes or a deluge of snow, Silverthorne police chief John Minor gives his officers the same piece of advice: “You better have your head on a swivel and your head in the game, because it’s about to get a little sporty.” For the officers and state patrollers who ride herd over the chaotic cattle drive of cars and semis during an interstate evacuation, being on high alert means the difference between life and death. “If you’re actually on the interstate staffing that closure just before the...

  • American Airlines Believes It Doesn’t Need Over-the-Top Luxury to Compete With Gulf Carriers

    Skift ^ | October 26, 2017 | Brian Sumers
    We’re not surprised American Airlines is not interested in blinged-out first and business class cabins. But we’re still slightly puzzled at the U.S. carriers’ anger toward the Gulf airlines. Yes, Emirates, Etihad and Qatar receive government assistance, but so do a lot of airlines. Don’t expect American Airlines to introduce on-board bars, first class showers, or business class seats that convert to double beds anytime soon. That news shouldn’t come as a surprise to frequent flyers, who know U.S. carriers such as American prefer more utilitarian premium cabins — with flat-bed seats and gourmet food, but without the over-the-top luxury...

    CBS News ^ | October 24, 2017 | By KATHRYN WATSON
    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed its remaining case against President Trump's travel ban, leaving the court's calendar devoid of travel ban cases until any challenges related to Mr. Trump's third and latest travel ban make their way up to the highest court. The Supreme Court dropped the case, first filed in Hawaii over the second version of the travel ban, because the Trump administration's 120-day restrictions on travelers from some Muslim-majority nations and on refugees expired on Tuesday. Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the order. The order did not address the merits of the case.

  • US judge blocks latest Trump travel restrictions to the US from eight countries (This again?)

    A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week. The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii's request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the...

    Trump's Air Force One looks similar to the one that Obama flew. But plans for a bigger one are now under way. The US president walked down the stairs of Air Force One at an airport in Morristown, New Jersey. He gave a thumbs-up to journalists standing on the tarmac and as he walked past the cameras, he straightened the lapel of his jacket. An image-conscious businessman, he brags about the size of his hands and his ability to make a deal. For the new presidential aircraft, he wants both - a big machine that'll save the taxpayer money.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 22, 2017 | Anna Giaritelli
    The Trump administration is getting ready to add countries to its list of six nations whose citizens are banned from traveling to the U.S. due to national security concerns, according to a report Friday morning. The Department of Homeland Security proposal would go into effect Sunday, the expiration of the 90-day travel ban against select countries in the Middle East and North Africa. DHS recently flagged 17 unspecified nations that have failed to meet U.S. standards for screening travelers and ignored other government mandates. About half of those countries made changes to be more in line with U.S. security standards,...

    Pyongyang, North Korea (CNN) — A looming US travel ban has prompted some daring American globetrotters to fast-track their vacations to North Korea. Beginning September 1, United States passports will be invalid for travel to the hermit kingdom. "With the upcoming travel ban I felt like it was now or never," said Virginia resident Nicholas Burkhead, who lamented that he had run out of time to learn Korean before the travel ban.....
