Today is January 23, I am Dennis Michael Lynch, and the stories I am following are below.
1-3 Americans battling Australian wildfires killed in C-130 crash
Three American firefighters died in a water tanker plane crash Thursday while battling wildfires in Australia, New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian confirmed. Rural Fire Service officials said they had located the plane, a C-130 Hercules, that crashed in the snowy Monaro region of New South Wales state. Coulson Aviation in the U.S. state of Oregon said in a statement that one of its C-130 Lockheed large air tankers was lost after it left Richmond in New South Wales with retardant for a firebombing mission. It said the accident was “extensive” but provided few other details.
DML: May they rest in peace.
2-Schiff warns of Russian attack on US mainland
The Russians could attack the U.S. and removing President Trump from office is necessary to preserve the integrity of the 2020 election. Those were the claims Wednesday from Democrat Adam Schiff on Wednesday during Day 2 of Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.
DML: You can’t make this stuff up.
3-Biden won’t play ball with Dems when it comes to impeachment trial
Former Vice President Joe Biden was on the campaign trail when asked if he would take part in the witness swap concept floating around DC. The lead candidate for the Democrats in the 2020 race for president says he won’t be part of witness deal some Democrats reportedly eyeing.
DML: Sort of understandable. Why would Biden want to reveal his corruption on national TV amid an election season.
4-Supreme Court justices spar over major school-choice case
The Supreme Court appeared closely split during oral arguments Wednesday in a case with potentially major implications for the school choice movement. The case, Montana Department of Revenue v. Espinoza, centers around a tax-credit scholarship program passed in May 2015 that gave Montanans up to a $150 credit for donating to private scholarship organizations, helping students pay for their choice of private schools. The state’s revenue department made a rule banning those tax-credit scholarships from going to religious schools before the state’s Supreme Court later struck down the entire law.
DML: Justice Roberts meanwhile is listening to Adam Schiff. Insane.
5- Trump sets a record for number of Tweets in one day
The president loves to tweet. He is constantly touting things such as the U.S. having the “greatest economy in American history,” how unemployment for certain demographic groups is the “lowest in the history of our country,” and how his reelection campaign is setting fundraising records.vBut as of 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday — on a day when the Senate was embroiled in his impeachment trial and the president was attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland — Trump broke one of his own records by sending out a whopping 131 tweets and retweets in a single day, marking the most of his presidency.
DML: Trump loves to break records, so he must be happy with his 131 tweets. My concern however is the impact this may have on his thumbs. That many tweets is a lot of wear and tear placed on the fingers. The good news for the president is that we have an incredible product called MIRACLE ME CBD, and it’s a pain relief body oil that can take away most pain within minutes. Although it cannot take away the pain caused by Democrats and impeachment hearings, it can relieve the pains associated with over-tweeting.
