The Air Force has awarded Boeing a $600 million modification to a previous contract to buy two commercial 747 jetliners, and convert them for the Air Force One. The additional money, according to an Air Force statement, is for design upgrades to the pair of planes that were originally destined to be sold to a now-bankrupt Russian airliner, which never took delivery. The contract is for the design of modifications to ensure the planes can accommodate the communications and security needs of the president. The actual work on the aircraft won´t begin until sometime next summer, and will require a

The Story Behind Norman Rockwell’s
‘Thanksgiving Picture’
Breitbart Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 11/23/2017 3:28:37 PM     Post Reply
Norman Rockwell’s “Thanksgiving Picture” is one of the most iconic images ever created of American life.First published in the March 6, 1943 weekly edition of The Saturday Evening Post, Rockwell worried that the presentation of such a large turkey at the center of the bountiful and happy feast back home might cause unhappiness among the American troops fighting in Europe, North Africa, and the Pacific at a time when the tide of the war had not yet turned. It was still more than a year before the successful D-Day invasion on the beaches of Normandy June 6, 1944.Among the troops,

In October 2016, a Texas woman sent packages laden with explosives to Governor Greg Abbott, President Barack Obama and Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin. The only reason Abbott was not either severely burned or killed was that he did not open the package as designed.According to court documents, Julia Poff, 46, was reportedly angry at Abbott because she had not received support from her ex-husband. The package to Obama was detected in screening and rendered safe. The package to Colvin was reportedly motivated by the fact that Poff had applied for Social Security benefits and been denied.Poff

Hillary Clinton just won’t go away!Ol’ Crooked is so delusional that she actually thinks the 2020 Dem presidential hopeful can benefit from her advice–since she lost two election bids.Hillary’s recent loss is even more pathetic given that she cheated and lied the entire time and failed to visit blue states she lost to Donald Trump.Even the illegal alien vote couldn’t save Hillary! Hah!

The Democratic Party Is Still Having

The anti-Trump "Resistance" may still be active in some communities, but it´s definitely not cutting any checks to the Democratic Party.According to fundraising numbers released on Tuesday, the Democratic Party — and it´s leader, Tom Perez — managed to raise only $3.9 million in October, one-third of the $9.2 million raised by the Republican National Committee. That´s the worst October the DNC has had in more than 15 years. October took the Republican Party out of debt; it´s now raised $113.2 million for the year, with around $40 million ready in the bank for the 2018 mid-term elections. Democrats, meanwhile, have

A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share." "For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store. They were facing 10 years in prison. President Trump asked President Xi Jinping for leniency. The three players were released. Thug life on display – After watching this bizarro interview with his father I can completely understand why LiAngelo Ball thought it would be perfectly okay to shoplift in China and live a life beyond

A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds the race in a statistical tie nearly two weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore rocked the campaign. (Snip) When asked “what do you think about the allegations made against Roy Moore,” 45% believe all or some of the allegations; 34% do not believe the allegations; and 21% believe some or all of the allegations, but say it has not changed their vote. Among party lines, nearly half (48%) of Republican voters surveyed do not believe the allegations. Another 24% of Republicans say they believe some

A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling on the underside. (Snip) The charges against Mr. Moore are not only serious; they are completely credible. If you read the original Washington Post story, you know it was rigorously reported, with great care and professionalism. Four women who did not seek out the press, who did

The NFL is considering an idea for next year to keep players inside their locker rooms during the playing of the National Anthem. "I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen," said one person familiar with the owners´ deliberations on anthem-related issues.Years ago, the players would come out on the field to warm up and then return to the locker room during the National Anthem. The league is thinking of going back to that policy. Washington Post: That person said it was "too early to tell" for certain
