Custom upgrades add $600 million
to Air Force One sticker price

Washington Examiner, by Jamie McIntyre

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/13/2017 1:15:18 PM

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

Melania Trump once again stepped up her fashion game during a state dinner in Beijing on Thursday, donning an ornate Gucci fur trim dress with an ornate pattern reminiscent of traditional Chinese clothing. The first lady, 47, exuded confidence as she strode in five-inch, baby pink stilettos, which matched the fur lining of her sleeves, next to her Chinese counterpart, Peng Liyuan. Meanwhile, the White House communications director Hope Hicks, who has given Melania a run for her money in the style department over the past few days, appeared to take a step back in a very simple, slightly baggy

John Hillerman, who played stuffed-shirt Higgins to Tom Selleck´s freewheeling detective Thomas Magnum in the 1980s TV series Magnum, P.I. has died at the age of 84. Hillerman, who had been in declining health, died Thursday at his home in Houston, Texas, his nephew Chris Tritico told media. Hillerman´s nephew remembered his uncle fondly, saying: ´He had an outstanding sense of humor and was one of the most well-read people I ever met. You couldn’t play Scrabble with him.´ (Photo) The cause of death was not immediately known. Besides playing manager of the Hawaiian estate that Magnum used as home base,

A juror, who was excused from the bribery trial of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), said Thursday she would have found the New Jersey lawmaker "not guilty on every charge” if she had remained on the jury. “I feel like the government was very corrupted, not that Menendez was. That they were, to me, railroading him. This is how I feel. Personally, he’s not guilty on all counts," Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby said, according to Politico. "I don’t think he did anything wrong,” she added at the end of the jury´s third day of deliberations. U.S. District Judge William Walls had promised Arroyo-Maultsby

The father of Texas church gunman Devin Kelley has broken his silence in the wake of the massacre, saying his family is in mourning, according to a report. “We are grieving, our family is grieving,” Michael Kelley told ABC News on Wednesday at his home in New Braunfels, about 35 miles north of Sutherland Springs, where his son slaughtered 26 people and wounded 20 others at First Baptist Church. After committing the atrocity, the 26-year-old exchanged gunfire with Stephen Willeford, who struck him in the leg and torso with his rifle before jumping into a vehicle driven by Johnnie Langendorff

After raising a family in the San Antonio area, Farida Brown moved to LaVernia about 20 years ago and found a community at the First Baptist Church, as so many others have. It was the type of place where congregants had developed an unofficial seating chart and greeted each other by name each Sunday. But that building will soon be gone. Pastor Frank Pomeroy told leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention it would be too painful to continue using First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs as a place of worship and he plans to demolish the building.

Nov. 11 is the day we celebrate Veterans Day. For many of us who have served, it is an important day; to large parts of Middle America, it is a time to celebrate; and to others, they couldn’t care less. What should this day mean to every American? Are we properly serving our veterans? Are veterans burdens, or assets? By way of education, Nov. 11 actually started out as Armistice Day, commemorating the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1919. This is when the Treaty of Versailles was signed, ending World War I. This was

UPDATE 2:14 p.m.: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called on the party´s nominee for Senate in Alabama, Roy Moore, to withdraw from the race if a new report that he pursued teenage girls in his 30´s is true. "If these allegations are true, he must step aside." The Washington Post published the story about Moore on Thursday.

The Washington Post is imminently planning to run a piece targeting Judge Roy Moore, claiming that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls thirty-four years ago. The alleged incidents, all of which Moore strongly denies, allegedly took place between 1977 and 1982. Breitbart News obtained details of the forthcoming Post story from the newspaper’s letter detailing the allegations sent to Moore’s campaign for comment. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News.

WASHINGTON—Illinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis says he sees ‘nothing wrong’ with the California ACLU’s effort to ban the Star Spangled Banner as the country’s national anthem. “Well, you know, one of the things about the Constitution that our forefathers wrote, and basically, there were none of our foremothers that were there. There were none of our fore-sisters there. There are changes that can take place and there is room to change,” he told TheDC Thursday. Alice Huffman, president of the California chapter of the NAACP, declared the anthem to be “racist” and that it “doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti-black

President Trump may not speak Mandarin (and he does say "China" kind of funny), so on his trip to the biog red nation, Trump brought along someone who does — Arabella Rose Kushner, his 6-year-old granddaughter. During Trump´s meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping on Wednesday, when the leaders strolled through the ancient Forbidden City, Trump showed Xi a video of his granddaughter. In it, Arabella greets "Grandpa Xi and Grandma Peng" and then sings several Mandarin ballads. She concludes by reciting an ancient Chinese poem — all in Mandarin.

In this day and age you don’t actually have to win anything to be considered a winner. People who self-identify as winners can get just as much praise without having to work too hard. Take Hillary Clinton. The media can’t quite get over the fact that she lost the the 2016 election, so they’ve spent the last year showering her with applause and awards. But none of them compare to the applause and awards she gives herself. Now Clinton has written a letter to her teen self, and Teen Vogue actually published it.

I argued that conservatives should disassociate themselves from Roy Moore and denounce him weeks before credible allegations surfaced today that he preyed on teenage girls, one only 14 years old. So I’m pretty locked-in. I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a little hard for me to focus on that upside when you think about what they considered to be acceptable until now. Still, it’s good to know where the line is. You can set up shady charities for profit. You can call for religious tests and champion theocracy. You can

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with

Hillary Clinton is in secret negotiations with Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russian dossier, to purchase a second report that allegedly contains salacious new charges against President Trump, according to several sources with personal knowledge of the transaction. The talks with Steele, a former British spy, are being carried out by Hillary´s former campaign aides, who do not hide their bitterness over the shocking loss of the White House to Donald Trump, these sources say. ´Hillary´s people have been secretly in touch with Steele and are close to making a deal with him on opposition research that he claims has

Following a year of layoffs, ESPN is expected to have another round after Thanksgiving. Over 100 staffers could lose their jobs in the layoffs, including positions on the television side, producers, executives and those in digital and technology, according to Sports Illustrated. SportsCenter is expected to be "hit hard" and some on-air talent could be out of a job. ESPN declined to comment to Sports Illustrated about the looming job cuts. Layoffs have been occurring at ESPN multiple times throughout the last two years. In October 2015, the company laid off over 300 employees and this past April over 100

Sen. Bob Corker said Wednesday he will hold a hearing next week looking at presidential authority to use nuclear weapons, in a move that seems targeted at President Trump. Mr. Corker, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee who has repeatedly tussled with Mr. Trump, said members of both parties have questioned what powers the president has to use nuclear weapons. Mr. Corker said it’s been more than four decades since Congress has looked at the issue, and it seemed the time was ripe. “This discussion is long overdue, and we look forward to examining this critical issue,” he

Election 2018: No question about it, the GOP took a real shellacking in Tuesday´s off-year vote, losing key elections in Virginia, New York and New Jersey. Republicans have been put on notice for 2018: Do your job, or go home. Democrats ran what was for them a smart but unprincipled, bare-knuckled campaign. They smeared moderate Republicans as racists and white-power advocates, while largely avoiding making their campaigns about issues. It worked: They won 16 seats in the Virginia legislature and the state´s governorship, re-elected a failed socialist mayor in New York, and took back New Jersey´s gubernatorial mansion from departing Republican
