Democrat Rosa DeLauro (CT) went off on the Republicans' proposed health care bill, holding up a sign on the House floor that read "Get Old People."
"What does the GOP stand for? 'Get Old People.' That's what this bill does," she said.
DeLauro said the bill, which is scheduled for a vote this afternoon, will impose an "age tax on older Americans" and make their health care unaffordable.
She also said 24 millions will lose their insurance while shifting costs to states under the American Health Care Act.
A small plane has crashed into a subdivision in the northern Atlanta suburbs Friday night, killing the pilot and setting a house ablaze, authorities said. FAA spokesman Rick Breitenfeldt said a Cessna Citation I crashed on Vistawood Drive in Marietta, Georgia, about three miles northeast of Cobb County International Airport, around 7.20pm Friday. The plane, coming from Wilmington, Delaware, en route to Fulton County Airport, crashed next to a house and exploded. The house next door caught on fire from the radiant heat and was fully engulfed when the Cobb County Fire Department arrived on the scene, authorities said. Everyone in both houses got out safely and no injuries were reported. Some neighborhood residents witnessed the plane crash. 'I noticed they were looking up in the sky and I see a plane going straight down, it was going down in a corkscrew fashion, it was really slow, I couldn't hear an engine,' resident John Perry told Fox 5. Resident Duncan Elrod was working on his roof nearby and filmed the immediate aftermath of the crash. Elrod thought the pilot may have been trying to land on the street, but the angle was too sharp and they could not make it. 'And I heard a plane and it sounded like it was flying really, really low and about the time I started to look and see where it was, there was a boom and huge explosion, and a large fireball,' said Elrod of the crash. A large black plume of smoke could be seen for miles in the area of the crash Friday night. Officials said the pilot issued a distress call from the Cessna Citation I - a small-sized business jet that can hold five passengers and two crew members. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
This video should rock every advocate of “free speech” to the core. Is there a social media platform that isn’t silencing the voice of conservatives?
Six militants were killed after an alleged attempted attack against the Russian National Guard base in Naurskaya village, on Friday.
The group of armed militants broke into the base at 02:30 local time (23:30 Thursday GMT), but were found by a group of National Guard soldiers. As a result of the shooting, six National Guard soldiers were also killed and three injured.
The so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
With the energy of 100 million supernovae, gravitational waves may have ejected a supermassive black hole from the center of a distant galaxy. The Hubble Space Telescope spotted a rogue black hole that’s said to be the largest yet to be found outside of a galactic core, weighing more than 1 billion suns. Astronomer suspect the ‘monster object’ was kicked out of the center as two large black holes merged, unleashing powerful gravitational waves. The find, according to NASA, was out of the ordinary. ‘When I first saw this, I thought we were seeing something very peculiar,’ said team leader Marco Chiaberge of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) and Johns Hopkins University. ‘When we combined observations from Hubble, the Chandra X-ray Observatory, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, it all pointed towards the same scenario. ‘The amount of data we collected, from X-rays to ultraviolet to near-infrared light is definitely larger than for any of the other candidate rogue black holes.’ Hubble images in visible and near-infrared light revealed a bright quasar named 3C 186 in a galaxy 8 billion light-years away. But, the object was far from the galaxy’s core. These are known to be energetic signatures of black holes, and are typically found in the center. ‘I was anticipating seeing a lot of merging galaxies, and I was expecting to see messy host galaxies around the quasars, but I wasn’t really expecting to see a quasar that was clearly offset from the core of a regularly shaped galaxy,’ Chiaberge said. ‘Black holes reside in the center of galaxies, so it’s unusual to see a quasar not in the center.’
A Florida woman is being told to take down her Blue Lives Matter flag that's been flying for several years now by her homeowners association.
Jeff Gaddie told Action News Jacksonville that his daughter in St. Johns County has been flying the flag to honor him and many other family members who are law enforcement.
"She called to ask why," Gaddie said. "They told her they had received a complaint that it was considered racist, offensive and anti-Black Lives Matter,” he said.
The association asked the woman, who did not want to be identified for fear of backlash, to submit a request for permission to fly the flag, which has since been denied.
Action News Jacksonville reached out to the First Coast Association Management, which said only American and military-themed flags are allowed to fly in the neighborhood, even though there are other types of flags flying.
Gaddie says the flag is only a show of support and the family is planning to appeal the decision at the next homeowner's association meeting.

A strange clip of a teacher biting a students hair in order to lift her head off the table has emerged. The odd incident happened about a year ago but has resurfaced online. Jaws wide, the teacher approaches the snoozing student across a classroom.He then pounces on her, chomping her ponytail between his teeth. As she's pulled from the desk where she was sleeping she looks shocked and worried. She gasps and grabs her hair and the creepy teacher relinquishes his grip. It isn't known exactly where the weird incident happened but the 27-second clip has been shared widely on social media and other internet sites. Viewers have expressed their shock and confusion at the teacher's strange method of waking up a sleeping pupil.One said: 'That was the most inappropriate thing he could do.' Another questioned: 'Is that legal?' Someone else joked: 'He's just walking around like: ''What can i eat in this room? Oh look, hair!''' The video has divided opinion with some taking a light-hearted view and others taking it more seriously. 'I think this is rather funny,' wrote a viewer. 'I think a lot of people forget that even as we age we retain certain silliness that we did as children.' But an outraged comment-posted replied: 'He is violating her safe space and oppressing her because she is a female.'
The residents of Montgomery County are about fed up with having to pay for illegal immigrants to go to school. One particular resident, a woman who knew all the facts on the issue, spoke with Twitter star Jack Posobiec about what exactly the school district has been doing, in light of the fact that an illegal immigrant raped a 14 year-old girl in a Montgomery County school bathroom. “The Montgomery County school district enacted an 8.7 percent tax increase…” the woman said. “Supposedly the money was to go for school expenses for all the illegal immigrant children coming in.” -- “They’re coming in at 2,000 a year,” the woman continued. ---- So basically, taxpayers are being forced to finance people who could commit crimes. When does this end?
A video has been shared online showing the moment a pickup truck ran a red light and became airborne after launching off a snowbank. The heart-stopping 42-second clip was uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, where it has racked up more than 15,000 views as of Friday morning, and counting. The video, shared by Roland Plain III, a fitness instructor from Highland, New York, begins with a vehicle carrying several men driving on a road in broad daylight with hip hop music blaring in the background. Suddenly, one of the occupants of the car spots a white pickup truck up ahead that appears to be speeding. 'He's going straight,' the man says just before the other vehicle blows through a red light at an intersection and smashes into a snowbank, sending a cloud of ice and snow into the air. 'Oh, holy s*hit, bro!' the astonished eyewitness exclaims. 'That was real.' The young men keep the camera rolling as they drive up to the spot where the battered pickup truck had come to a stop after smashing into a low metal pillar, with the rear of the vehicle resting atop a small mound of snow and ice. 'Is this dude good?' the narrator of the video wonders aloud, referring to the driver of the pickup. 'What was this dude doing? This dude is so f***ed up.' The clip ends with the companions pulling over and getting out of their car, presumably to render aid to the crash victim. Little information is known about the accident and its outcome, beyond the fact that it took place on Thursday somewhere in the US, possibly in upstate New York where the person who posted the video lives and works.
This is the terrifying moment two passengers narrowly escaped unharmed when an escalator crumpled into pieces at a subway station in eastern China. One passenger suffered minor injuries to his leg in the incident which took place in Suzhou yesterday. The railway company attended to the scene and repaired the escalator four hours after the accident.According to Yangtse.com, the accident happened at the no. 4 exit of Lindun Lu station in Suzhou city at 10:30 am yesterday. Surveillance footage from the railway station shows the moment two passengers get on the escalator. The stairs then start to pile up at the bottom. Two other people that were walking towards the machine stop in front of the escalator. At least three steps were stacked up, revealing the motor parts under the footplate of the escalator. The breakdown triggered the emergency stop. The two lucky passengers can be seen walking up quickly to exit after.A spokesperson from Suzhou Rail Transit told reporters that one on-duty cleaner reported the incident to the station staff. He explained the escalator had a malfunction and was repaired within 30 minutes but 'due to safety issues, the exit remained closed in order to carry out an inspection overnight.
A young man with autism and his friend were viciously attacked and beaten as they walked home from a grocery store on Richmond’s Southside. The attack happened on Saturday, March 18.
The whole thing was captured on camera.
The victim said he hoped people who saw the video would recognize what he called "a vicious gang of kids."
"A bunch of kids just jumped him," the victim's father said.
CBS 6 hid the identity of the victim, who was thrown to the ground, kicked, stomped, and hit in the face.
Blindsided and beaten, the victim suffered a black eye and broken nose. He said he knew it could have been worse.
"They slammed me to the ground and beat the crap out of me,” he said. “My eyes were black, missing teeth, got up, and I was dizzy and dripping blood."
When President Trump made his claim that President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the presidential campaign, the media demanded evidence. Since Trump’s initial tweet on March 4, the evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC have called on the White House to provide more evidence a grand total of 123 times. But when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes briefed the President, and the press, revealing that Trump associates’ names hadn’t been redacted from intelligence reports, the networks changed their tone. According to Nunes, the Trump associates hadn’t been the target of surveillance. However, their conversations were picked up in the process, and then their identities weren’t masked as is usually the protocol with American citizens.
Nunes’s revelation didn’t prove the President’s wiretapping claims, but it did change the network news’s tone on releasing evidence. Before Nunes, the evening news shows were full of examples of demands for evidence to be made public. “Is it appropriate to ask whether the President is having difficulty with rationality?” CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley asked on March 8. NBC senior political analyst Mark Halperin said, “in case after case as a presidential candidate – even as President – Donald Trump has made outrageous claims with no obvious basis in fact.” ABC senior investigative correspondent Brian Ross mused that “because the President cited no proof, it is not clear tonight whether he based his allegations on top secret White House a briefing or whether it came from reading an article on the conservative Breitbart website.”
But after Nunes, the network journalists seemed less enthusiastic. On CBS Evening News on March 22, foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan said, “Nunes took the unusual step of briefing the press, then then President, before telling Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee.” At the end of a report on Nunes’s statement, ABC's World News Tonight fill-in anchor Tom Llamas noted that “a lot of Democrats are outraged with that statement.” Chief White House correspodent Jonathan Karl agreed: They sure are. And the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, said that Nunes is more concerned with defending Trump than leading the committee's investigation into Russian interference. He said today, Nunes needs to decide whether he is the chairman of an independent investigation or a surrogate of the white house, he cannot do both. And, as you remember, Nunes was a key player on the Trump transition.
A group of unhinged leftists berated police officers that were called in by the college to deal with them protesting the death of a black man at the hands of police. Listen as the long-haired hippies and Libtard feminists chant things such as "fascist" as well as "all cops are bastards."
A former Russian MP who had fled to Ukraine was shot dead on a busy street in central Kiev on Thursday.
What is Islam's position on the treatment of homosexuals?
Islam goes beyond merely disapproving of homosexuality. Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death.
Beneath the surface, however, there are implied references to homosexual behavior in paradise, and it has been a historical part of Arab and Muslim culture.
Quran (7:80-84) - "...For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.... And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)" - An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the "rain of stones" on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people's destruction. (Inexplicably, the story is also repeated in suras 15:74, 27:58 and 29:40).
Quran (7:81) - "Will ye commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you?" This verse is part of the previous text and it establishes that homosexuality as different from (and much worse than) adultery or other sexual sin. According to the Arabic grammar, homosexuality is called the worst sin, while references elsewhere describe other forms of non-marital sex as being "among great sins."
Quran (26:165-166) - "Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, "And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing"
Quran (4:16) - "If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone" This is the Yusuf Ali translation. The original Arabic does not use the word "men" and simply says "two from among you." Yusuf Ali may have added the word "men" because the verse seems to refer to a different set than referred to in the prior verse (explicitly denoted as "your women"). In other words, since 4:15 refers to "your women", 4:16 is presumably written to and refers to men.
Interestingly, the same rules don't seem to apply in paradise, where martyrs for the cause of Allah enjoy an orgy of virgins and "perpetual youth" Quran (56:17) (interpreted by many to mean "boys" Quran (52:24)). Quran (76:19) bluntly states, "And immortal boys will circulate among them, when you see them you will count them as scattered pearls." Technically, the mere presence of boys doesn't necessarily mean sex, however it is strongly implied from the particular emphasis on the effeminacy, handsomeness and "freshness" of the boys. The female virgins of paradise are also compared to pearls (56:23).
[Editor's note: We are not implying a link between homosexuality and pedophilia here anymore than we are implying one between heterosexuality and pedophilia when recounting that Muhammad's preferred wife was a 9-year-old girl.]
Eau Claire, WI, 21 March, 2017 - Eau Claire Police Department Officer Kyle Roder received an urgent phone call from the IRS on his cell phone this morning. He was told he was going to be arrested if he did not call back right away! So, he called them back and used his interrogation skills to scam the scammer. Assuming the person was attempting to scam him, Roder decided to call back and use his interrogation skills to expose the con man’s tactics, recording the entire exchange. “Hello, is this the IRS?” Roder opens the call by asking. “It said to call this number, it said I had committed a fraud or something?” The scammer replies, “Yes,” then asks for a case number. When Roder says he wasn’t given one, the “agent” says he can look Roder up by his address. “But you said you’re going to issue a warrant for me and come to my house,” Roder says. “If you don’t have my address, how are you going to do that?” He also asks how much time he has before he is arrested, which caused the man to waffle a bit before replying, “Until our shift is over.” “This is James Maxwell and I’m holding a badge number of ML0544501221, that’s my badge number.” When Roder grabs a pen and asks him to repeat the number, however, the phony agent says, “This is James Johnson.” When Roder catches him giving a different name, the man tries to cover up by saying, “James Maxwell Johnson, sir.” Contrary to the man's claim that Roder was hours from being arrested, the department says they don’t get arrest warrants from the IRS. Roder recommends that anyone who receives a similar call refrain from engaging the caller and just hang up. The police department decided to post video of the call to educate people.
Nothing really needs to be explained here, as you can see these Islamists continue to show their true face on a daily basis. Here they are praising Hitler, while waving flags of Turkey, who's president ironically claimed that German's were Nazi's for not allowing, well, more flag waving Muslims like this into Germany.
