The mother of a US Navy sailor who survived a direct hit to his sleeping berth during a collision at sea said her son kept diving to try to save his shipmates until the flooded berth began running out of air pockets, while others - believing the ship was under attack - hurried to man the guns. Mia Sykes of Raleigh, North Carolina, told the AP on Sunday that her 19-year-old son, Brayden Harden, was knocked out of his bunk by the impact, and water immediately began filling the berth, after their destroyer, the USS Fitzgerald, collided with a Philippine-flagged

Stood my share of bridge watches. Something is seriously off here and I refuse to believe so many sailors would have messed up.

It´s possible that this was simply a failure on the part of the watch team. Part of the Standing Orders on almost every Navy ship is that the captain be notified of any vessel that is tracking to pass within 3,000 yards. Either the captain wasn´t notified by the Officer of the Deck or opted to not go to the bridge when notified. This being the midwatch, I can also see a scenario in which the watch team was fatigued and failed to exercise proper judgment. There was nothing suspicious about the USS Port Royal running onto the reef off Honolulu International Airport a few years back - that was simply a bad mix of fatigued sailors and non-operational equipment. It happens.

President Donald Trump has outpaced his immediate predecessors when it comes to having his choices for federal judgeships confirmed. The Senate this week approved a fifth Trump nominee, placing Trump on a faster pace for approvals than either President Barack Obama or President George W. Bush. Most recently, Alabama lawyer Kevin Christopher Newsom was confirmed to a seat on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, on a 66-31 vote, with 16 Democrats joining the GOP on the affirmative side, the Washington Times reported. Newsom was the third Trump pick for circuit judge to be approved so far. Combined with

The Department of Homeland Security announced its plans to build a 15-mile prototype of the border wall in San Diego. The department issued a waiver from numerous environmental laws and regulations to build the wall with "robust physical characteristics" to prevent illegal immigration crossings in an area of "high illegal entry." "The Department is implementing President Trump’s Executive Order 13767, Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements, and continues to take steps to immediately plan, design, and construct a physical wall along the southern border, using appropriate materials and technology to most effectively achieve complete operational control of the southern border,"

A new batch of emails from longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin show efforts to use old connections to get jobs or score face time with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The emails are the latest batch that conservative group Judicial Watch got from a freedom of information lawsuit. In one email, Clinton library Puerto Rican executive Miguel Lasell seeks a meeting with Clinton, and makes a separate online pitch for a favored candidate to be ambassador to the Domican Republic. ´I will be in DC from the 7th to the 9th and would like if possible to say

Jeff Foxworthy made it big with his "you just might be a redneck" routine. Foxworthy´s success inspired me to flatter him, sincerely, with a "you just might be a Progressive Democrat" imitation. The take-off goes as follows: If you think you are the most tolerant person in the room but label all opposing views "hate speech," you just might be a Progressive Democrat. If you believe that being gay is hardwired and unchangeable but insist that male and female are merely social constructs and that folks can change their "gender identities" from one day to the next, there´s a good

The internet has been sent into a frenzy after several prescient books written more than 100-years-ago have reemerged about the adventures of a boy named Baron Trump. Ingersoll Lockwood, an American political writer and novelist, wrote two children´s books titled ´Baron Trump´s Marvelous Underground Journey,´ and ´Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulgar,´ as well as an ominously titled political tome, ´The Last President.´ The book titles and the connections to President Donald Trump and his son Barron are just the beginning of several spooky parallels. In the children´s books, the novels tell the tale of a wealthy aristocratic

Former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power is believed to have made "hundreds" of unmasking requests to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources who said the behavior is unprecedented for an official in her position. Power was first identified by the Washington Free Beacon last month as a central figure in a congressional investigation into efforts by senior Obama administration officials to obtain classified intelligence information in what many allege was an effort to undermine President Donald Trump and his incoming national security team.

Why No Warning Label on Marijuana?
Cybercast News Service, by Thomas Ascik    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/2/2017 5:05:41     Post Reply
The federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act requires all drugs in the United States to be shown safe and effective before being marketed in the United States. Now that the manufacture and sale of marijuana is legal in Colorado, California, and six other states, why hasn’t the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required warning labels on marijuana? The FDA has plenary powers, including the outright prohibition of the marketing of unsafe drugs. It has similar statutory authority to issue an order recalling drugs, although recalls are normally done voluntarily by drug manufacturers. The FDA issues weekly enforcement reports on drugs, medical

The Republican National Committee is touting some big fundraising numbers bolstered by President Trump´s appeal with his base, including small donors. The $75 million-plus brought in by the party in the first six months of this year is more than double the amount that Democrats raised during Barack Obama´s first six months, ABC reported. "Our base loves the president," RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel said this morning. McDaniel told Bill Hemmer that Republican voters want Congress to support the president´s agenda and voters backed Trump because they believed he would fight for them.

The new Republican president wanted to pass tax cuts, repeal Obamacare and build a border wall. (Video) But nothing happened.

Six months later...CNN´s Fareed Zakaria has it figured out. Or at least he thinks he does. Donald Trump became President Trump, the host mused, because Americans wanted to stick it to the elites. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. (Free Beacon) Zakaria went on to argue that

A mother of four living in Ohio was deported to Mexico after a traffic stop revealed she entered the country illegally from Mexico nearly 20 years ago. Beatriz Morelos Casillas, 37, was arrested for driving without a license near Cleveland, Ohio, on July 24. Tuesday, she was deported to Nuevo Laredo, one of the most dangerous places in Mexico and where the State Department issued a travel warning in December 2016 due to violent crime. Beatriz´s husband – who is here legally on a work visa – drove from Ohio to be with her and make sure she´s safe. Her relatives in Ohio called her deportation unfair and worry about the

President Obama and his allies are already whispering in the ear of the Democrat they´d like to see run for president next, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett and even the former president himself, according to Politico, all see Patrick, who left politics in 2015, as an heir apparent. He, however, doesn´t seem that interested yet, while Obama´s ex-vice president Joe Biden, seems more primed to run. ´I´m trying to think about how to be helpful, because I care about the country, and I´m a patriot first,´ he told Politico for the pub´s Off Message podcast. ´It´s

A friend of mine who attended the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year -- I skipped it -- reported to me that the Young Republican men were "wearing their ties down past their [crotches]." I cleaned up the quote a bit for the benefit of a family newspaper. Though I´m not sure why I should bother when a White House communications director has helped so many staid institutions expand their horizons. As my National Review colleague Kyle Smith noted, the New York Times has a long history of insisting that vulgarities do not meet the definition of news fit to print.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Newly minted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flipped Russia conspiracy questions during Tuesday’s press briefing, pointing to a lack of evidence against the Trump Administration and a host of evidence against Bill and Hillary Clinton. Sanders slammed media questions aimed at showing that there were any “misleading” actions by the Trump campaign or Trump Administration with regards to Russia. “The thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion.

President Donald Trump has become increasingly frustrated with his advisers tasked with crafting a new U.S. strategy in Afghanistan and recently suggested firing the war´s top military commander during a tense meeting at the White House, according to senior administration officials. During the July 19 meeting, Trump repeatedly suggested that Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford replace Gen. John Nicholson, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, because he is not winning the war, the officials said. Trump has not met Nicholson, and the Pentagon has been considering extending his time

Auto sales continued their declines across most of the industry for July. General Motors led monthly declines for the Detroit Three as its vehicle sales fell 15.4% for July compared to the same month a year ago. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles fell 10% and Ford was down 7.5%. Toyota, in a departure from the overall trend, notched a 3.6% increase. The results continue a general drop-off in sales for most automakers that has been ongoing for months following record sales last year. They highlight the prediction that the industry is in a post-peak period. Much of the decline was attributed to lower fleet sales. The sales news

Once upon a time, brothers-in-law William Procter and James Gamble sold candles and soap. Their 19th-century family business grew into the largest consumer goods conglomerate in the world -- launching the most recognizable brands on our grocery shelves, including Tide, Pampers, Crest, Nyquil and Old Spice. Now, Procter & Gamble want to conquer a new market: identity-politics pandering. Industry marketers aren´t satisfied with selling useful products people want and need. They´re hell-bent on transforming successful businesses into social justice busybodies. P&G´s "My Black is Beautiful" campaign released a new video last week called, "The Talk."
