If you live in the upper United States, you may want to take a peek outside your window Sunday night. Why? Well, thanks to a recent explosion on the sun, a light display known as the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights, may be visible "as low as New York to Wisconsin to Washington State," according to NOAA´s Space Weather Prediction Center. The National Weather Service tweeted that the lights will be most visible after sunset on Sunday until about 2 a.m. on Monday. Experts say the lights will be most visible under dark, clear skies. (Tweet) So what causes the aurora? "The 'Northern Lights' are caused by

When I was stationed at Minot AFB, back around July, 1975 there was an aurora display that wet horizon-to-horizon, and lasted three days. It was spectacular.

A real, serious Northern Lights show is a thing to behold. It, by itself, is enough justification to visit Alaska some day, although there are many, many other reasons, too.

Donald Trump rails against government
checks and balances after defeat for
Obamacare repeal in Senate
Independent [UK], by Alexandra Wilts    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/28/2017 10:29:44     Post Reply
Washington DC - Donald Trump has called for a change to Senate voting rules in the wake of a devastating defeat for his push to repeal Obamacare – one of his major campaign promises. The President wrote on Twitter that in order to pass "great future legislation" the Senate "must immediately go to a 51 vote majority, not senseless 60". The Senate's Republican leadership had been trying to pass their healthcare bill, which would have dismantled the Affordable Care Act – otherwise known as Obamacare – under the budget reconciliation process. To conform to the rules of reconciliation legislation — meaning that the Senate only

Washington - For months, conservative news outlets have built a case against Imran Awan, his wife, two brothers and a friend, piece by piece. To hear some commentators tell it, with the help of his family and a cushy job on Capitol Hill, Mr. Awan, a Pakistani-American, had managed to steal computer hardware, congressional data and even — just maybe — a trove of internal Democratic National Committee emails that eventually surfaced last summer on WikiLeaks. It helped that the story seems to involve, if only tangentially, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman who is the former chairwoman of the committee and an

White House tensions flare in the open as
Scaramucci rips Priebus in vulgar tirade

The cinematic infighting that has consumed the White House in recent days was pushed into public view on Thursday, exposing the West Wing as the political equivalent of a New York-accented reality television show that runs on a raucous mix of drama, machismo and suspicion. The new communications director — Anthony Scaramucci, a flashy New York financier who brags that he and Trump “started out as friends” — has been trying to oust White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus (Snip) Scaramucci accused Priebus of leaking to the media about behind-the-scenes maneuverings and his own personal finances,

Ben Cardin says Senate is still in

Sen. Ben Cardin said Friday that the Senate will remain in session and could “quickly” hold a hearing if there was a new health care proposal to debate. “The Senate is in session. We could have a hearing next week. We could put hearings together quickly,” Mr. Cardin, Maryland Democrat, said on CNN. Mr. Cardin added that if a new proposal were put forward, he would want more time to debate and review it. “We also believe when you come up with proposals, you should let it be aired. You should let people have an opportunity to understand it. Recognize that the last bill we voted on was shown to us two hours before we voted on it,”

Italy´s cabinet has backed sending a mission to Libya to try to stem the influx of migrants. The mission would help Libya "reinforce their capacity to control their borders and national territory", said Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. It would reportedly comprise ships, planes and 700 personnel. Mr Gentiloni claimed it had been requested by Libya, but the UN-backed government there vigorously denied making any such request. In an earlier statement, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj said his administration had agreed to receive only training and arms from Italy, but said: "Libya´s national sovereignty is a red line that nobody must cross."

The young man had immigrated from El Salvador three months earlier to join his mother in Nassau County, Long Island. The gang had harassed him in El Salvador because he refused to join them.

Missile as U.S. Considers New Sanctions

Tehran - Iran successfully launched a missile into space on Thursday, state media reported, two days after the United States House of Representatives approved a bill that would impose additional sanctions against the country, and Russia and North Korea. Such tests of what are essentially carrier rockets are not prohibited under the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and a group of six world powers including the United States. That agreement eased existing economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for the country’s verifiable promises to restrict its nuclear program to peaceful purposes.

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

Moscow - Russia seized two American diplomatic properties on Friday and ordered the United States Embassy in Moscow to reduce its staff by September, in the Kremlin’s first retaliatory steps against proposed new American sanctions. The moves, which Russia had been threatening for weeks, came a day after the United States Senate approved a measure expanding economic sanctions against Russia, as well as against Iran and North Korea. The bill, mirroring one passed by the House on Tuesday, now goes to President Trump for his signature. It is unclear whether Mr. Trump will sign.

Washington - About two weeks after teasing a potential bid for US Senate, musician Kid Rock announced early Thursday morning that he is creating a non-profit to promote voter registration. "The one thing I´ve seen over and over is that although people are unhappy with the government, too few are even registered to vote or do anything about it. (Snip) He also said he'd hold a news conference in the next six weeks to address the non-profit and a potential Senate run.

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton assessed the limited options for the Trump administration in the wake of new reports that North Korea could have a nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile as early as next year. U.S. officials warn Pyongyang could be readying another test-launch, as the hermit dictator threatens to strike the U.S. with a "powerful nuclear hammer" if it attempts regime change. (Snip) He said the last diplomatic option involves China and convincing them that it´s in their best interest to unite the Koreas.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani IT staffers and brothers who were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach. Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal. When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
