Did Washington state DOT’s webcam capture Bigfoot image? ‘We will leave that up to you!’

Is it? Could it be? Maybe … or maybe not.

An image of the legendary creature Bigfoot may have been captured on a Washington State Department of Transportation webcam, the agency says.

“Sasquatch spotted!!! I’m not superstitious… just a little stitious,” a WSDOT East post on Twitter said this week. “Have you noticed something strange on our Sherman Pass/SR 20 webcam before? If you look closely by the tree on the left there looks to be something… might be Sasquatch… We will leave that up to you!”

People played along, asking for more information or other photos of Sasquatch in response to the post.

“They DO exist!!!” one reader replied, adding the hashtag, #IBelieve.”

POSSIBLE BIGFOOT SIGHTING REVEALED AS SCIENTISTS HUNT FOR ‘APELIKE CREATURE’ IN OREGON FORESTS

The agency — responsible for transportation information east of the Cascade Mountains — posted a follow-up tweet Thursday saying crews made several passes near the area but came up empty.

“We made it back from Sherman Pass! Made several passes and even stopped at the top of the summit near the camera to see if we could find Sasquatch… no such luck,” the agency said.

When asked for more details about the photo, the transportation agency said its “signals/sign shop manager knows the truth behind it.”

“There is a story behind it,” the agency said. “I’ll see what I can find out, but he’s very tight-lipped!”

The agency also posted a GIF of “Seinfeld” character George Costanza saying his famous line, “Just remember, It’s not a lie if you believe it.”

Another person did some investigating and replied to the Twitter post after taking a look at the webcam later in the day.

“Well if it’s a Bigfoot it must be a slow one,” the user said. “Cause he’s still there…”

The camera operates 24 hours a day and the image updates every 60 minutes, according to the WSDOT.

Back in December, scientists and explorers were reportedly on the trail of the legendary creature in the forests of Oregon, with some using thermal cameras as part of a documentary for the Travel Channel. More than 10,000 people in the U.S. have described encounters with Bigfoot over the past 50 years.

James Carafano: Iran Ayatollah Khamenei ‘really nervous’ about anti-government protests

A rare public appearance by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei shows how nervous his regime is about the “level of anger and mistrust” inside Iran today, retired Army Lt. Col. James Carafano said Friday.

Appearing on “Outnumbered: Overtime” with host Harris Faulkner, Carafano noted that the Ayatollah had not been seen at public prayers in Tehran for eight years. Khamenei used the platform to praise the country’s retaliatory strike against the U.S. over the killing of one of its top generals. He also appeared to call President Trump a clown who cannot be trusted.

IRAN’S SUPREME LEADER CALLS TRUMP A CLOWN, PRAISES MISSILE ATTACK IN RARE APPEARANCE

“The villainous U.S. government repeatedly says that they are standing by the Iranian people. They lie,” Khamenei said. “If you are standing with the Iranian people, it is only to stab them in the heart with their venomous daggers.”

He also insisted Iran would not bow to U.S. pressure after months of crushing sanctions and called Washington’s decision to kill Gen. Qassem Soleimani earlier this month a “cowardly” hit.

However, Carafano said that Khameini’s remarks seem to be more about domestic policy than confrontation with the United States and putting a “strong face on the administration and his government.”

“Look, he would not be doing that if they weren’t really, really, nervous about the level of anger and mistrust inside Iran today,” he added.

Carafano, vice president of the Heritage Foundation’s Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy, told Faulkner that, in many ways, any unrest within the Middle Eastern country is “just an extension of ongoing protests we’ve seen against the regime.”

“And, [protesters are] really blaming the regime for their circumstances, not blaming the United States…for the sanctions,” he said. “But, the Iranians [in government] were essentially taking all the money and spending it on surrogates, spending it on adventurism, and not really investing in the Iranian people.”

“Now look, we don’t know how really widespread that is,” Carafano added, “but when you see things like the Iranian students … walking down the street and then consciously trying to walk around images of the American [and] Israeli flag, we have not seen anything like that since somebody took a sledgehammer to the Berlin Wall.”

Rep. Brian Mast: Politically motivated Dems tried to ‘steal’ moment of reflection for fallen soldiers

Westlake Legal Group MAST Rep. Brian Mast: Politically motivated Dems tried to 'steal' moment of reflection for fallen soldiers Julia Musto fox-news/world/terrorism fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox-news/us/us-regions/west/washington fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/virginia fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/wisconsin fox-news/us/terror/counter-terrorism fox-news/us/terror fox-news/us/military/veterans fox-news/us/military fox-news/us/congress fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/foreign-policy fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 315bc431-b6a8-56f5-9855-0f28e97951d3

Congressional Democrats in a hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday tried to “steal” a moment of reflection about fallen U.S. military members because it didn’t align with their political agenda, retired Army Ranger and double amputee Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., said Friday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” along with Virginia Republican congressional candidate Rob Jones and Wisconsin Republican congressional candidate Jason Church, Mast argued that the criticism of the operation that took out Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani further proved the need for veterans in Congress. All three men lost their legs in combat.

REP. MAST WAITS SILENTLY AFTER ASKING FOR NAMES OF ANY FALLEN AMERICANS WHOSE DEATHS DIDN’T JUSTIFY SOLEIMANI STRIKE

The hearing Mast was alluding to had been called to discuss U.S. foreign policy with regard to Iran, following Soleimani’s death and the rogue nation’s retaliatory attack on American coalition forces in Iraq.

When it came his turn to speak, Mast told lawmakers: “If you walk out this hallway, you are going to come to several beautiful walls that have the names of our fallen service members from the war on terror. And, I would ask: can any of you provide me one name on that wall that doesn’t justify killing Soleimani?” he asked to resounding silence.

“I got two minutes and 30 seconds,” the Florida Republican continued. “I’ll be more than happy to sit here and wait. Somebody provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify his killing.”

As Mast sat and waited, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., attempted to move the hearing along, telling Mast, “you’ve made your point” and “you’re out of order.”

“Look, I just wanted them to have to answer an honest question, because they are trying to debate all of these semantics about whether we should have killed this terrorist that killed Americans…hundreds of Americans across the country that was because of Soleimani and force them to answer this question. Not give them a pass on it,” Mast explained.

“And, what did they do?” he asked. “They tried to steal a moment of reflection about our fallen service members — friends of mine, friends of Jason, friends of Rob — because it didn’t fit their political agenda.”

“They tried to silence us; we can’t let them do it,” he told Hegseth.

“I think veterans are kind of necessary representatives in Congress because we are experts at selflessness and we are experts at sacrificing of ourselves for the greater good,” Jones remarked. “And, those are two requirements – in my opinion – for somebody that’s going to be a representative.”

Church added that watching Mast take a stand showed “the power of an individual that’s inspired by something that he has seen and experienced in the harshest of circumstances.”

“And, we have all seen that,” he said. “And, we have seen the destruction that Qassem Soleimani has done. We have seen it firsthand.”

“This man was a terrorist,” Church continued, “So, I applaud Brian for what you were talking about there and I applaud the president for his actions. Because, at the end of the day, this has saved countless lives and – in my opinion – is preventing another war.”

“The one thing I can tell you if you want to serve in Washington: do it the way that people did in combat — without personal gain and without regard for personal sacrifice,” Mast said. “Any other way, you don’t belong here.”

Winter weather hits Seattle as Northwest storm brings ‘treacherous’ travel impacts, power outages

Thousands of residents across the Pacific Northwest were without power on Monday after a storm system brought heavy snow to the region, part of an active stretch of rough weather over the next couple of days.

The National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said a steady onshore flow will aid in production precipitation as pair of storm systems track through Washington and Oregon, bringing heavy snow.

“Big storms across the Pacific Northwest, that’s one spot to pay attention to,” Fox News Meteorologist Adam Klotz said on “Fox & Friends.” “Higher elevations, maybe a whole lot of snow. Right along the coast, just heavy rain.”

POLAR VORTEX, BOMB CYCLONE, SLEET: HERE’S WHAT THOSE WINTER WEATHER TERMS MEAN

Forecasts said that snowfall will be measured in feet in the Cascades, the Northern Sierra Nevada, Northeast Oregon, Northern and Central Idaho, before impacts shift further east into Western Wyoming, North-Central Utah and the Colorado Rockies.

“Wintry weather is the headliner with numerous Winter Storms Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories in effect from the Cascades of Washington and Oregon, eastward to the Central Rockies,” the NWS said.

The region’s first major winter storm of the season spawned widespread warnings about forceful winds, snow dumps and freezing temperatures. The Seattle metro area has been under winter weather advisories until late Monday as they may pick up several inches of snow.

“Expect treacherous and icy travel conditions in these affected areas,” the WPC said.

The heavy, wet snow in the Seattle area was causing numerous problems, including school closures, as power lines and trees came down, according to Q13FOX. Some 12,000 customers were without power in the Seattle region due to the heavy snow, while around 3,000 additional customers were without lights in western Washington into parts of Idaho.

WISCONSIN POLICE OFFICERS FALL ‘VICTIM TO THE ICE’ AMID SLIPPERY CONDITIONS

A 30-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 2 was also closed at Stevens Pass due to downed limbs and power lines.

The Portland metro area was also bracing for a possible round of snow in the coming days that will be coupled with below-freezing temperatures.

Many in the Portland area were preparing whatever may come later this week.

Jake Doherty, an employee at an Ace Hardware store in Lake Oswego, Ore., told FOX12 the store had already gone through half a pallet of ice melt by Sunday afternoon.

“As soon as the snowflakes start to come down, we really see people come in,” Doherty told FOX12. “It’s a pretty big surge of people, which is always fun. It’s fun to get everyone what they need and out the door safely.”

Green Bay Packers fend off Seattle Seahawks to advance to NFC Championship

The Green Bay Packers are back in the NFC Championship game for the first time since the 2016 season after defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 28-23, on Sunday night.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers led Green Bay on the final drive to seal the deal thanks to a 9-yard pass to tight end Jimmy Graham, who narrowly got past the first-down marker. It was part of his 16-for-27, 243-yard performance.

He added two touchdown passes to his night as well.

PACKERS’ ZA’DARIUS SMITH SENDS ONE-WORD MESSAGE TO CRITICS AFTER SACK

The Packers offense was buoyed by running back Aaron Jones, who had 62 rushing yards on 21 carries and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Davante Adams led the Packers with 160 yards receiving on eight catches. He had both of Rodgers’ touchdown passes.

Seattle gave the Packers all they had.

JIMMY JOHNSON LEARNS ABOUT HALL OF FAME INDUCTION ON FOX HALFTIME SHOW

Green Bay led Seattle 21-3 at the half but Seattle stormed back with running back Marshawn Lynch’s touchdown run from the 1-yard line and a 7-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to wide receiver Tyler Lockett. Lynch would score another rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter to bring the game to within five points.

However, the Seahawks’ final drive stalled out after a sack on Wilson from linebacker Preston Smith. The Packers defense got to Wilson five times. Seattle never got the ball back after the Smith sack.

Preston Smith and linebacker Za’Darius Smith had two sacks each. Defensive tackle Kenny Clark had one other.

GOP challenger says AOC failing New York by pandering for the spotlight

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is failing her congressional districts in New York by not working with other elected officials in her party and pandering for the spotlight, Republican U.S. Congressional candidate Scherie Murray said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Lisa Boothe, Murray said Democrats are frustrated with Ocasio-Cortez and she is challenging for her seat because it is impacting her district.

“This is just another example of AOC trying to deliver socialism to America. And, she is trying to recruit radicals to do so,” said Murray.

“I think it’s just a shame that she doesn’t want to support her own party and be a team player,” she added.

AOC RILES DEMS BY REFUSING TO PAY PARTY DUES, BANKROLLING COLLEAGUES’ OPPONENTS

Although Ocasio-Cortez has already topped the fundraising charts in her short time in Congress, Fox News has learned that she won’t donate a cent of her money to the Democrats’ House campaign organization — a position that has rankled some of her colleagues.

Instead, she is building her own fundraising operation for fellow progressive candidates to bypass the official Democratic Party infrastructure. Already, she’s actively funding primary challengers to oust certain Democratic colleagues.

AOC SLAMS DEM CENTRISTS AS ‘TEA PARTY OF THE LEFT,’ SUGGESTS BIDEN SHOULDN’T BE IN SAME PARTY

Murray said she is challenging Ocasio-Cortez’s seat because of how much her actions negatively impact the voters of her district.

“We are in this fight to combat what we see as a far-left socialist narrative that’s detrimental to America. Democrats are up in arms with her,” Murray told Boothe.

“I plan on being in the district and I have a record of accomplishments, unlike my opponent who, from the time since she [was] elected, has been her bid for the limelight and has left the constituents of the 14th District abandoned,” she stated.

Murray believes that Queens and the Bronx deserve more.

“We don’t need someone in Washington that’s going to continue to divide the fight. We need someone that is going to unite the fight,” she asserted.

“We need a leader in Washington that can work across the aisle and that’s what I plan to do if duly elected to Queens and the Bronx to represent NY-14,” said Murray.

Rep. Adam Smith mocked for flip-flop on Pelosi strategy; Trump Jr. cites ‘BS’ from Dems’ ‘lunatic fringe’

U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., became the target of social media trolls and other critics – including Donald Trump Jr. – on Thursday for his abrupt reversal regarding when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should deliver articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate.

Early Thursday, Smith said he believed Pelosi was looking to establish negotiating leverage with the Senate by withholding the two articles of impeachment against President Trump, which the House approved last month. The articles charge the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in relation to a July phone call with the president of Ukraine.

But ultimately, Smith said, he believed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was in charge of the Senate and should determine that body’s course of action regarding a Trump impeachment trial.

“I think it was perfectly advisable for the speaker to try to leverage that to get a better deal,” Smith told CNN, but adding “at this point, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.”

“I think it is time to send the impeachment to the Senate and let Mitch McConnell be responsible for the fairness of the trial,” Smith said. “He ultimately is.”

But just a short time later, Smith posted on Twitter what seemed to be a complete reversal from the statements he made on TV.

“I misspoke this morning,” Smith wrote. “I do believe we should do everything we can to force the Senate to have a fair trial. If the Speaker believes that holding on to the articles for a longer time will help force a fair trial in the Senate, then I wholeheartedly support that decision.”

Critics quickly took note of the sudden retreat by Smith, the 54-year-old chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and suggested that perhaps he was surrendering to pressure from Democratic Party leaders.

“Hahahaha someones not allowed to think for himself and got in trouble for breaking with Nancy’s narrative,” Donald Trump Jr. wrote. “This has been the problem with the sham impeachment from day one, no one actually believes this BS except for the lunatic fringe who have hijacked the whole Democratic party.”

“Bang bang Nancy’s silver hammer went down on Adam Smith’s head …” political commentator Doug Heye wrote, alluding to an old Beatles song.

Smith’s flip-flop wasn’t playing well in his home state, either.

“He has no courage of his convictions, and had to deny his own words an hour later,” said Dori Monson, host of a Seattle radio show, according to MyNorthwest.com.

Later, Smith tried to clarify his remarks during an appearance on Monson’s program.

“All I was saying was, ‘At the end of the day, we can’t force the Senate any more than they can force us,’” Smith told Monson, according to MyNorthwest.com. “‘We have to try to leverage them and persuade them.’”

1,400 Seattle students without updated vaccinations could be banned from class: report

Students in Seattle who do not have the required vaccinations could be prevented from returning to class when school resumes on Jan. 8, officials said.

As of Friday, some 1,400 students did not have up-to-date vaccination records, according to officials with Seattle Public Schools, as reported by Q13 Fox. 

THE FLU HAS SICKENED THIS STATE THE MOST, REPORT FINDS 

“It’s going to be a matter of the district and the school, principals and teachers and nurses doing everything they can right here at the finish line to get all the students’ records updated come January 8,” Tim Robinson, a spokesperson for Seattle Public Schools, told the news station. Free vaccination clinics were offered over winter break, he noted, adding the number of students without up-to-date vaccination records is expected to decline before the Wednesday deadline.

That said, those who do not meet the deadline will not be allowed to return to school “until the required information is provided to the school nurse,” according to a December statement on the Seattle Public Schools website.

The news comes after a new Washington State law that does away with personal and/or philosophical exemptions to the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine went into effect over the summer. The law “also requires that students are fully vaccinated, be in the process of completing immunizations or have a signed Certificate of Exemption (religious or medical exemption) in order to attend school,” as per the statement.

Any missed days over outdated immunizations records will be counted as unexcused absences, the district said, noting they will be marked as excused only after updated records are submitted.

The Seattle Public School District is comprised of 50,000 students and 104 schools, according to CNN.

“I think as responsible parents, we all should be responsible for our children,” one parent, Marieck Garcia, told Q13 Fox. “I think that’s important to keep everybody healthy.”

The Seattle Seahawks got a fantastic game from rookie D.K. Metcalf and a strong performance from the defense to end the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff hopes and advance to the next round.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was 18-for-30 with 325 passing yards and a touchdown pass in the 17-9 win.

The touchdown pass, to Metcalf in the third quarter, gave Seattle enough of an edge to hold off the Eagles.

EAGLES’ CARSON WENTZ EXITS GAME AFTER TAKING BRUTAL SHOT TO THE HEAD

Metcalf finished with seven receptions for 160 yards and the touchdown. He also had the long catch to seal the win for Seattle.

Seattle’s defense also caught a bit of a break.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game after he took a hit to the head from Seahawks defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney. Wentz didn’t return to the game; Josh McCown replaced him.

McCown gave a valiant effort but couldn’t score a touchdown even when they got close. McCown was 18-for-24 with 174 passing yards. However, he was sacked six times while Wentz was sacked once. Those key sacks were enough to half any kind of Eagles momentum.

Seattle is set to take on the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round.

The last time the two teams met in the playoffs was on Jan. 18, 2015, in the NFC Championship game. Seattle scored 15 points in the fourth quarter and got the game-winning touchdown pass from Wilson to Jermaine Kearse in overtime to win the game.

This upcoming matchup is sure to be a classic.
