Major blizzard buries cars, homes in more than 12 inches of snow in Newfoundland: report

Canada’s easternmost province was buried under 30 inches of snow Friday – a record for the most snow in 24 hours – as residents of the provincial capital of St. Johns struggled to clear snow drifts of 12 to 15 feet high left in the wake of the storm, a published report said.

CANADIAN ZOO CANCELS PENGUIN WALK DUE TO ‘EXTREME COLD WEATHER CONDITIONS’

St. John’s broke the old record for snow in 24 hours as 30 inches hit Newfoundland and Labrador resulting in a slew of power outages and business closings as roadways were ordered cleared except for emergency vehicles, The Washington Post reported. Government officials called in the Canadian armed forces to help clear the inundation.

Officials said because of hurricane-level winds in the area, in some cases reaching the century mark, it was difficult to ascertain an exact amount of snow with all the blowing and drifting, the newspaper reported.

Residents awoke Saturday morning to find the snow had not only covered up their cars, but also the first floors of many homes.

Meanwhile, the storm was labeled a Canadian meteorologists as a meteorological “bomb,” having undergone a process of rapid intensification known as bombogenesis, the report said. Although short in duration, it was unusually ferocious even for an area used to powerful ocean storms during the winter – “as severe a blizzard as St. John’s metro has ever seen,” tweeted The Weather Network’s Chris Scott.

Almost 7,000 customers in the St. John’s area experienced power outages late Saturday afternoon, according to Newfoundland Power, which posted no estimated restoration time for the majority that were attributed to poor weather. On Friday evening, that number stood at 10,000 customers, the Post reported.

The Department of Transportation and Works for Newfoundland and Labrador said plow operators handled more than 100 requests for assistance Friday, including 24 from ambulances, 23 from police and 60 from the public.

Australian wildfires prompt $11G fine for tossing lit cigarette from vehicle

Drivers in Australia caught tossing a lit cigarette from their vehicles can now face a fine of up to $11,000.

The penalty took effect on Friday in New South Wales (NSW), according to a press release from the local government. It comes as devastating wildfires continue to severely impact the region.

“If a motorist commits the offence during a total fire ban, the penalty will double to 10 demerit points and a fine of up to $11,000,” the release said.

As of Sunday, 69 fires continue to burn in the region which has claimed the lives of at least 21 people, according to the Guardian.

The hefty fine will be imposed during a total fire ban, described as days when fires “are likely to spread rapidly and could be difficult to control,” according to the County Fire Authority (CFA).

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau in 2018, the $11,000 penalty is nearly 1/5 of the yearly median U.S. household income.

Passengers will also be fined $660 if they’re caught tossing butts onto the roadway — which will double to $1,320 during a total fire ban, the release said. In 2019, over 200 people were caught tossing cigarettes out of their cars in NSW.

CLIMATE CHANGE OR POOR POLICY? AS AUSTRALIA’S WILDFIRES SEE SOME RELIEF, BLAME GAME ASCENDS

NSW Rural Fire Service Association President Brian McDonough said he was happy with the government’s decision.

“This reckless behaviour puts the safety of firefighting volunteers at risk,” McDonough said, according to the release. “I hope this move makes people think very carefully about the consequences of their actions next time they go to discard a lit cigarette.”

Drivers will also be penalized five demerit points, which doubles during a total fire ban. The release added that it’s “the first time a demerit point penalty has been imposed on this type of offense.”

Steve Hilton calls impeachment ‘an insult’ to Americans

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6124832208001_6124827192001-vs Steve Hilton calls impeachment 'an insult' to Americans Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/the-next-revolution fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 31d7db84-7a80-5cd8-b37c-677ffbf74895

On “The Next Revolution” Sunday, host Steve Hilton touted President Trump’s recent victories over the Washington establishment, slamming the Democrats impeachment push and praising the president for his accomplishments.

“It’s a totally different mindset when you put an outsider in the Oval Office, that mindset is what’s delivering results on deregulation, immigration and border trade and all the rest of it,” Hilton said in his opening monologue.

NADLER SAYS DEMS UNWILLING TO NEGOTIATE HUNTER BIDEN TESTIMONY IN EXCHANGE FOR OTHER WITNESSES

Hilton called impeachment “an insult” to Americans.

“All this is why he’s delivering and why impeachment is not just a joke, but an insult to every American who has a right to expect that Congress, like the president, is spending its time getting real results for workers and families,” Hilton said.

While running through numerous examples of the president’s success, Hilton used this week’s China trade agreement as another example of the president’s focus on the issues while Democrats are focused on Trump.

“Of course, you can forget about that from today’s decadent Democrats. But the best thing the president can do is to focus on policy, on results,” Hilton said. “So we continue to see that contrast between Trump results and Democrats stunts.”

Charles Hurt, founder of Turning Point USA, joined Hilton and criticized the “ruling class,” saying they are “infatuated” with  impeachment.

“America’s divided, but it’s not divided the way that the media wants us to believe,” Hurt said. “It’s divided between the ruling class that is just so infatuated with impeachment and destabilizing, destabilising this president and revitalization that’s happening in this country.”

Hurt blasted the media for ignoring Trump’s “results.”

“So the ruling class, the wise men of Washington, the kingdom of Washington, D.C., their entire agenda last 40 years has now been proven completely incorrect. They’ve been getting rich while America really has been falling behind,” Hurt said. “And it’s a disgrace that the media continues to ignore the results of this president.”

China counts sharp rise in coronavirus cases during country’s busiest travel time, 2 in Beijing

Westlake Legal Group 18dd5f1d-coronavirus_AP China counts sharp rise in coronavirus cases during country’s busiest travel time, 2 in Beijing fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fnc/health fnc e16928af-9549-5e76-a238-1996e99e205b Associated Press article

BEIJING — China reported Monday a sharp rise in the number of people infected with a new coronavirus, including the first cases in the capital. The outbreak coincides with the country’s busiest travel period, as millions board trains and planes for the Lunar New Year holidays.

Health authorities in the central city of Wuhan, where the viral pneumonia appears to have originated, said an additional 136 cases have been confirmed in the city, which now has a total of 198 infected patients. As of the weekend, a third patient had died, bringing the death toll to three.

Two individuals in Beijing and one in the southern city of Shenzhen have also been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, health commissions in the respective cities said Monday. The three people had visited Wuhan.

The outbreak has put other countries on alert as millions of Chinese travel for Lunar New Year. Authorities in Thailand and in Japan have already identified at least three cases, all involving recent travel from China.

At least a half-dozen countries in Asia and three U.S. airports have started screening incoming airline passengers from central China.

Many of the initial cases had connections to a seafood market in Wuhan, which was closed for an investigation.

As hundreds of people who came into close contact with diagnosed patients were not infected themselves, the municipal health commission maintains that the virus is not easily transmitted between humans, though it has not ruled out limited human-to-human transmission.

Coronaviruses cause diseases ranging from the common cold to SARS, or severe acute respiratory syndrome. SARS first infected people in southern China in late 2002 and spread to more than two dozen countries, killing nearly 800.

The virus causing the current outbreak is different from those previously identified, Chinese scientists said earlier this month. Initial symptoms of the novel coronavirus include fever, cough, tightness of the chest and shortness of breath.

Texas man receives ‘nasty’ messages after DMV revokes ‘Jail 45’ license plate: report

A Texas man says his family has received ‘nasty’ messages after the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles forced him to remove his controversial license plate.

Jerry Balkenbush’s vanity plate, which is now being revoked, reads “Jail 45” — a reference to Trump, the 45th president of the United States.

The reported Air Force veteran says he got the plates in November as a form of peaceful protest, but after receiving a complaint back in December, he said the state determined it was derogatory.

“Someone said, ‘OK, that’s OK,’ and then one complaint says, ‘OK, you’ve got to take them off’ when to me, that’s my freedom of speech, my First Amendment rights,” Balkenbush told Dallas-Fort Worth’s WFAA.

After he posted photos of the plate to Facebook, Balkenbush says they prompted hate from people online who messaged his family.

“I did not foresee the hate coming, the nasty words and profanity towards me and towards my wife,” he told the station. “I feel like this is the new normal in our politics.”

A DMV rarely issues a vanity plate only to take it back. It’s happened just 12 times in the last fiscal year, DMV spokesman Adam Shaivitz told the outlet. The Texas DMV approves roughly 1,000 vanity plates each week and rejects hundreds each month.

Balkenbush has 30 days to take the plates off, according to KXAS Fort Worth.

Justice Dept. Ignores Kushner Part Of Court Order To Release Mueller Interview Notes

Westlake Legal Group 5e251e412200009e063f7c55 Justice Dept. Ignores Kushner Part Of Court Order To Release Mueller Interview Notes

In apparent defiance of a court order, the Justice Department has held back all notes in the Robert Mueller investigation concerning interviews with Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, according to CNN.

Justice officials were ordered to turn over notes to two news organizations from the former special counsel’s interviews with key witnesses during his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The department on Friday released an additional 176 pages of documents after a batch more than two weeks ago. But all information linked to Kushner was conspicuously missing, CNN reported.

Senior U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton had ordered the Department of Justice in October to release records that had been supplied to the U.S. House in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by CNN and BuzzFeed. The DOJ provided no explanation for the missing Kushner records, according to CNN. 

The DOJ is allowed to redact information in the records and to withhold some documents provided to the House, CNN noted.

“On January 2 and Friday night, the Justice Department was to have handed over as much of the documents the House had read as it could …. Kushner wasn’t in either January batch,” said a statement from CNN. “It’s still not clear why. CNN and BuzzFeed continue to fight for access to more documents from the Mueller investigation in court.”

Walton has criticized the Trump administration for failing to adequately staff federal offices charged with complying with FOIA requests. “It seems to me that they are just thumbing their nose at the FOIA statute because we are talking about years down the road” before records will be released, he said late last year of the requests from CNN and BuzzFeed.

The Justice Department couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
