Space Force instrumental to future of America’s defense, says former NASA astronaut Tom Jones

Space ForcePresident Trump’s new military branch —  is “very important” for the future of the United States as the world places increasing importance on “the space domain,” former NASA Astronaut Tom Jones said Saturday.

Appearing on “America’s News HQ: Weekend” with host Ed Henry, Jones said the president’s investment in this new branch is a “big shakeup.”

“I think it recognizes the importance of space to our defense,” said Jones. “It recognizes that we have these critical satellites up there that help us do intelligence gathering and reconnaissance and instant communications and getting information about early warnings…You know, launches from enemies towards us.”

TRUMP SIGNS $1.4T SPENDING BILL THAT INCLUDES SPACE FORCE, AVOIDS SHUTDOWN

On Friday, the president signed a  $1.4 trillion spending package that included the launch of Space Force — the first new military service in over 70 years.

“Space is the world’s new war-fighting domain,” Trump said Friday during the signing ceremony at Joint Base Andrews. “Among grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital. And we’re leading, but we’re not leading by enough, and very shortly we’ll be leading by a lot.”

AIR FORCE SECRETARY BARRETT: SPACE FORCE NOW OPERATING TO PRESERVE AND PROTECT OUR VITAL INTERESTS IN SPACE

Jones said the Space Force is designed to focus U.S. efforts on protecting the satellites and “making sure that other enemies know that they can’t get away with an attack like that without suffering themselves.”

“This recognizes that we’ve got to do more to protect our own satellites with the Space Force. And, it brings the talent together from all the military services to protect those satellites and to build the military capability to threaten an adversary’s,” he told Henry.

The program has a budget of $40 million with 200 new recruits, whereas the U.S. Army has a budget of more than $180 billion with 480,000 active-duty soldiers.

“What’s important is to bring the talent together so they can do their job with less friction and less red tape and acquire the launchers and the satellites that we need rapidly to put our assets back up if they’re ever attacked,” Jones explained.

“I think it’s very important. I think we’re going to be moving more and more importance into the space domain,” he stated.

North Carolina man accused of murder by poisoning wife with eye drops in 2018

A North Carolina man who collected $250,000 in insurance money upon his wife’s 2018 death has been accused of fatally poisoning her with eye drops.

Stacy Hunsucker’s death had been ruled a heart attack. She was 32 and the mother of two young children, now 5 and 6, when she died.

Joshua Hunsucker, a paramedic, was charged with her murder Friday after being accused by a prosecutor of poisoning her with Visine.

VA DEPT. NURSE ADMITS POISONING HUSBAND WITH EYE DROPS OVER THREE DAYS, FACES MURDER RAP

A blood test “detected very high levels of tetrahydrozoline which is one of the active ingredients in certain eye drops,” prosecutor Jordan Green said in court, according to Fox 46 Charlotte.

The station also quoted Green as telling the judge, “We believe, through the interrogation of the defendant that occurred yesterday, that he was the one that poisoned Hunsucker with Visine or a similar product.”

Hunsucker was ordered held on a $1.5 million bond.

High levels of tetrahydrozoline in the body can cause heart stoppages, WBTV reported.

TEXAS MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING WIFE SAYS IN JAILHOUSE INTERVIEW THE BULLETS ‘DIDN’T EVEN FAZE HER’

The station quoted prosecutors as saying they believe the life insurance money was the motive for the crime.

The North Carolina Department of Insurance opened a fraud case after Stacy’s mother Suzie Robinson reported her suspicions about the death in May, the Gaston Gazette reported.

A search warrant affidavit says that her suspicions were based on her belief that Hunsicker was having an affair during the marriage, the paper reported.

Two weeks before Stacy’s death, local media had reported the arrest of a South Carolina nurse who was accused of killing her husband by putting eye drops in his water, the paper reported.

The paper also reported that Stacy had suffered from heart problems in the past and had received a pacemaker in 2015.

Hunsucker’s Facebook page shows that on the first anniversary of his wife’s death he posted a photo of the two of them together.

Jeff Flake claims Senate Republicans, not just Trump, are on trial

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5972424748001_5972426827001-vs Jeff Flake claims Senate Republicans, not just Trump, are on trial fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox news fnc/politics fnc ef19f2eb-9b27-5f09-90c7-c05819890da6 article Adam Shaw

Former Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., is warning his former colleagues in the Senate that they, along with President Trump, will be on trial when the articles of impeachment eventually move from the House to the upper chamber.

“President Trump is on trial. But in a very real sense, so are you. And so is the political party to which we belong,” Flake writes in an op-ed for The Washington Post Friday.

JEFF FLAKE SAYS ‘AT LEAST 35’ REPUBLICAN SENATORS WOULD PRIVATELY VOTE TO IMPEACH TRUMP

Flake, who left the Senate this year after having staked out a vocally anti-Trump stance, wrote after the House voted for two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The articles are expected to soon go to the Senate for a trial, although there are indications House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., may delay the articles being transmitted. In the Senate, Trump is almost certain of acquittal unless there is a sudden and dramatic shift of Republicans in favor of impeachment.

Flake urges Republicans to consider the evidence, but at the same time not to repeat House Republican assertions the president hasn’t done anything wrong: “He has.”

“The willingness of House Republicans to bend to the president’s will by attempting to shift blame with the promotion of bizarre and debunked conspiracy theories has been an appalling spectacle,” Flake argues. “It will have long-term ramifications for the country and the party, to say nothing of individual reputations.”

TOP DEMS IN CONTENTION TO PROSECUTE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT CASE — IF IT GOES TO TRIAL

He asks what Republicans would have done if President Barack Obama had engaged in the same behavior, in regards to Ukraine.

“I know the answer to that question with certainty, and so do you. You would have understood with striking clarity the threat it posed, and you would have known exactly what to do,” he says.

While Flake says he does not envy Republican senators’ task, he urges them to avoid “an alternate reality that would have us believe in things that obviously are not true, in the service of executive behavior that we never would have encouraged and a theory of executive power that we have always found abhorrent.”

“If there ever was a time to put country over party, it is now,” he writes. “And by putting country over party, you might just save the Grand Old Party before it’s too late.”

There have been no public signs so far of any mass defection against Trump by GOP senators. Despite rumors that a number of Republicans in the House may break off, no GOP members in the lower chamber voted for impeachment — while a few Democrats voted against.

It isn’t the first time Flake has indicated he believes that a Senate conviction of Trump is in the realm of possibility. He claimed in September that close to three dozen Republican senators would back ousting the president if the vote was held in private.

“I heard someone say if there were a private vote there would be 30 Republican votes. That’s not true,” Flake said on Slate’s “What Next” podcast. “There would be at least 35.”

Fox News’ Joseph Wulfsohn contributed to this report.

Mariah Carey Debuts New Video For Her Classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

Westlake Legal Group 5dfe3d6824000026135a40b1 Mariah Carey Debuts New Video For Her Classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

Mariah Carey debuted a new music video for her forever Christmas classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

The singer released the new video on Thursday in the midst of a monumental week. Her 1994 holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” climbed to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time, 25 years after its release.

The new video, which stars 7-year-old “Mixed-ish” actor Mykal-Michelle Harris, shows Carey sporting festive ensembles, including her own version of a Santa suit and a sparkly Nutcracker costume. Like her original 1994 video, the 2019 version sees Carey in snowy winter weather ― but with a sweet surprise cameo.

Carey’s 8-year-old twins with actor Nick Cannon, Moroccan and Monroe, appear in the video, breaking out a few dance moves.

Earlier this month, Carey released a mini-documentary on Amazon Music about the history of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” off her 1994 album “Merry Christmas.”

Carey celebrated the release of her new music video on Instagram on Saturday. 

“Hope you like my new video for All I Want For Christmas Is You,” she wrote. “We had so much fun making it.”

Clyburn says Pelosi isn’t handing over impeachment because she’s unsure of ‘process’ in Senate

Westlake Legal Group James-Clyburn-AP Clyburn says Pelosi isn't handing over impeachment because she's unsure of 'process' in Senate Sam Dorman fox-news/us/congress fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article a575b4f5-e470-59b2-b309-84070b8a2be9

House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., claimed on Saturday that Democrats were keeping impeachment from the Senate because they weren’t sure of the “process” that Republicans would adopt.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto had asked Clyburn why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was stalling. “Because we don’t know whether we should send two managers or 22 managers. If we knew what the process was, we would know what to do,” Clyburn said.

Clyburn pointed to how senators voted on a process after former President Clinton’s impeachment. “It was a bipartisan process, they put it on the floor, everybody bought into it” he said. Cavuto countered by arguing that the Republican-led House, at the time, didn’t hold off on sending the articles of impeacment to the Senate.

DEM WHIP NOT PUSHING MEMBERS TO SUPPORT ‘DIVISIVE’ IMPEACHMENT, EXPECTS TO LOSE SOME SUPPORT

Cavuto also suggested that the trial process was for the Senate to decide.

After the House approved impeachment on Wednesday, Pelosi indicated that she wouldn’t send it to the Senate because Republicans were creating an unfair trial.

Let me tell you what I don’t consider a fair trial,” Pelosi said. “This is what I don’t consider a fair trial — that Leader McConnell has stated that he’s not an impartial juror, that he’s going to take his cues, in quotes, from the White House, and he is working in total coordination with the White House counsel’s office.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., responded on Thursday by arguing that Pelosi realized her impeachment push was a disaster.

“I am glad that leading Democrats seem to have buyer’s remorse about the least fair, least thorough, and most rushed impeachment in American history,” he tweeted. “They should. But for the sake of the country, I wish this understanding had dawned on them yesterday.”

Woman fed up with nearby cheese shop’s alleged stench told to stop covering neighborhood in disparaging signs

Tough cheese, lady.

A woman in Germany has been ordered to stop plastering her neighborhood with stickers that aim to besmirch the reputation of a local cheese shop — a cheese shop she claims to be responsible for an alleged stench that permeates her residence.

WOMAN WITH LIFELONG FOOD PHOBIA EXPLAINS HER GRILLED-CHEESE DIET

A judge in Munich ruled that Manuela Kragler would still be able to vocally badmouth the Tölzer Kasladen cheese shop, which is located directly downstairs from her apartment in the city of Bad-Heilbrunn, but that she could no longer post the signage.

Kragler reportedly began complaining about the alleged smell in 2016, after moving into her current residence, Germany’s Deutsche Welle reported. She has since complained of the smell coming in through the windows, and even the electrical sockets of her home.

Wolfgang Hofmann, the owner of the shop, argued that the smell was not coming solely from his shop, but rather the farms in the vicinity of Bad-Heilbrunn. He also accused some of the residents of the building of hiding old cheese in the walls, behind the electrical sockets, to frame his shop for the smell.

In the end, the court said Kragler could continue to speak out about the alleged stench, as that constituted an opinion, a court representative said, per Deutsche Welle. However, Kragler was told to stop plastering the town with her stickers, which reportedly showed a nose and a warning sign, the BBC reported.

The Bad-Heilbrunn location of Tölzer Kasladen sells 200 varieties of cheese and matures an estimated 6,000 pounds of it on its premises, according to the BBC.

Trump impeachment sends stock market soaring, despite president’s warning it would crash

If I were one of the writers for next season, I would have Mitt Romney force a leadership change in the Senate and get McConnell voted out as majority leader, leading Trump to defect to Moscow without actually resigning. Trump is removed from office, but Republicans dont prohibit him from holding further office. He becomes the figurehead for Russia Today and continually tweets that he is the real President and Mike Pence is part of the Deep State.

All this plays out too late for Republicans to have any meaningful primaries, so Trump is still nominated (Maybe Graham for Veep this time?). Democrats, having not learned their lesson, nominate Biden, and Trump eeks out another narrow victory and returns to the White House on Putin’s private jet. Putin gives said jet to the American people to replace an aging Air Force One. (Trump continues to contribute to Russia Today from the White House.)

What should happen after that?

Jayme Closs’ captor manipulated her, admitted to having sexual fantasies of the teen, new documents reveal

The kidnapping of 14-year-old Jayme Closs from her parent’s Wisconsin home more than a year ago captured the nation’s attention for weeks but left more questions than answers.

For the first time since Jayme returned home on Jan. 10, investigators have released a trove of documents, which are shedding new light on her parents’ brutal murder in their home and her 88-day captivity. Up until this point, her ordeal remained a mystery to anyone outside the Closs family and law enforcement.

BODY FOUND LIKELY MISSING TEXAS MOM HEIDI BROUSSARD, POLICE SAY; NEWBORN FOUND ALIVE, SUSPECT ARRESTED 

Thousands of investigative reports released by the Wisconsin Department of Justice on Friday revealed disturbing details about the three-month period where Jayme was being held hostage by her parents killer, 22-year-old Jake Patterson.

The newly released transcripts from police interviews with Patterson following his arrest showed the psychological manipulation that Jayme underwent.

(Jennifer Smith via AP)

“I know that she was just (expletive) terrified of me,” Patterson, who is serving a life sentence for the shooting deaths of James and Denise Closs, said. “I just trusted her and that, she wouldn’t try to get out.”

The transcript of Patterson’s interview paints a picture of a man who acted on impulse and controlled Jayme’s movements around the cabin where she was held more than an hour away from her family home.

Patterson believed he had restrained Jayme with fear, telling police he never put extra locks on the doors or windows, because he thought she’d never leave. He said he was counting on “mind things” to keep her from running.

Patterson also admitted to having sexual thoughts about the then-13-year-old girl but refused to act on them because of the guilt he had from killing her parents. He said they slept in the same bed.

Much of the documents are heavily redacted.

(T’xer Zhon Kha/The Post-Crescent via AP, Pool)

Patterson said he became drunk one night and let Jayme write a letter to her aunt but he never sent it. He also told police that he allowed Jayme out of the house on rare occasions to walk in the yard with him but never off the property.

The documents also revealed Patterson’s train of thought during the killings and his desire to kidnap anyone: “If it wasn’t Jayme, it would probably be someone else,” he said.

Officials also released the horrifying 911 call Jayme’s mom placed, seconds before she was killed and another video from a police dashcam that showed responding officers pass right by Pattersons car on the way to the initial crime scene.
