Storm threatens disruption on busiest travel weekend

A powerful storm making its way from California could cause major disruptions for millions of travelers across the country hoping to get home after the Thanksgiving weekend.

The National Weather Service said travel could be impossible in some parts of the country as ice or flash flooding continues to cover swaths of the country.

The storm was expected to head east throughout the weekend into the Plains on Friday, the Midwest by Saturday and Northeast on Sunday.

Sunday will be particularly disruptive as millions of holiday travelers are expected to head home. One traveler asked the weather service via Twitter on Friday if it was advisable to drive to Duluth, Minn., over the weekend.

“If you are in Duluth by tonight, you will likely be stuck there until at least Sunday afternoon due to heavy snow and blizzard conditions,” the agency warned.

Airlines for America, the airline trade industry’s trade group, expects 31.1 million passengers to take to the skies Sunday. Multiple airlines said they were operating on Friday as usual.

Delta Airlines said weather could disrupt travel at airports in the upper Midwest on Saturday and the northeast on Sunday and Monday.

It offered to let customers cancel or reschedule flights. American Airlines issued similar offers in Rapid City, S.D. Sections of the state were under a blizzard warning and could see as much as two feet of snow.

Authorities in the state reported a fatal crash after a driver lost control on an ice-covered road. A 37-year-old passenger died after a truck slid into a ditch and rolled over.

Highways elsewhere were shut down. Drivers in California were left stranded and authorities in Arizona pleaded with travelers to wait out the weather.

The weather service issued warnings Friday from Montana to Nebraska to Wisconsin. It anticipates heavy snowfall in parts of Utah, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. Strong winds and snow became an issue earlier this week when 60 vehicles were involved in a massive pileup in Utah.

Northern Michigan University reopened its residence halls two days early to give students options as forecasters predicted a foot or more of snow in the region.

“We want to make people aware of what they could be driving into,” campus police Chief Mike Bath said.

The West Coast was slammed with winter storms earlier this week, causing thousands of flight delays. Up to four feet of snow was dumped in mountainous areas of the Pacific Northwest and Denver was clobbered by a storm Tuesday.

Gen. Anthony Tata: Trump was right, fired Navy secretary was wrong on Eddie Gallagher case

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6110037265001_6110028605001-vs Gen. Anthony Tata: Trump was right, fired Navy secretary was wrong on Eddie Gallagher case fox-news/us/military fox-news/tech/topics/us-navy fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article Anthony Tata a0ba1dfd-d43b-5bda-8a55-cb8876cb5770

Fired Navy Secretary Richard Spencer’s outburst at President Trump in a Washington Post op-ed published Wednesday, calling the president’s handling of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher’s case a “shocking and unprecedented intervention in a low-level review” is in and of itself shocking and unprecedented in several ways.

Spencer wrote: “The president has very little understanding of what it means to be in the military, to fight ethically or to be governed by a uniform set of rules and practices.”

In reality, Spencer is the man who bypassed the chain of command by cutting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper out of his scheming and working a backroom deal. Now, after being exposed, Spencer submissively avails himself to an eager mainstream media ready to consume his invective aimed at the president, creating the very chaos he blames on the president.

FIRED NAVY SECRETARY CRITICIZES TRUMP FOR ‘SHOCKING’ INTERVENTION IN SEAL CASE

Spencer aligned himself with the prosecution, adding more weight to the suffocating pressure of a resource-rich bureaucracy bearing down on the defense attorney and his client, Gallagher. Commanders and secretaries with decision-making and appellate authority are meant to be neutral by design, open to evidence, mitigation, and extenuation from both sides of the case.

More from Opinion

Those, like Spencer, who lack the requisite experience of leading large numbers of servicemen and women often fall prey to their own emotion-driven predilections. Spencer wanted the Navy to be right, so he followed prosecution guidance in a case that was marred by prosecutorial overreach.

For example:

Navy prosecutor Cmdr. Christopher Czaplak secretly embedded a tracking virus in an image of the scales of justice and the American flag on emails he exchanged with Gallagher’s defense attorneys, affording him an illegal window into the defense strategy.

Czaplak’s prosecution team, which included Naval Criminal Investigative Service officials, tampered with witnesses in efforts to prevent testimony, tainted the jury pool by leaking reports to the media favorable to the prosecution, and then conspired to shield those crimes as the defense brought them to light.

When Gallagher refused to sign a confession, reports indicate the brig commander moved him to solitary confinement, something we in the military recognize as an “enhanced interrogation” technique. Gallagher’s only “misbehavior” was not doing what the prosecution was badgering him to do. Sensory deprivation is solely intended to influence the target. It didn’t work on Gallagher, but they tried.

Spencer argues that the president’s intervention in a “low level” case is counter to the good order and discipline of the military. There is nothing “low level” about a wartime murder trial involving a Navy SEAL where a jury of Gallagher’s combat veteran peers found him not guilty of all crimes with which he was charged save being one of 12 individuals who posed for a picture with a dead combatant. Wrong, yes, but not something that justifies such an aggressive prosecution.

Lastly, Spencer’s quibbling over whether the president’s tweet was a “direct order” or not demonstrates how petty and vengeful he was toward Gallagher. The president was right to intervene to prevent a biased, small-minded person like Spencer from spitefully tilting the weight of the bureaucracy on top of a single sailor. Servicemen and women enjoy the same due process rights as the civilians of the country they serve.

As Spencer and his hashtags fade over the next several days, the president’s support of warfighters over bureaucrats will increase the morale of those in the rank and file. The critics will angrily accuse the president of supporting a war criminal, but the real crimes in this case have been papered over by a secretary of the Navy eager to avoid embarrassment at the expense of a sailor who, on the whole, served honorably.

Climate protesters block stores, disrupt Black Friday shopping

Westlake Legal Group Climate-Protest-AP-Germany Climate protesters block stores, disrupt Black Friday shopping Sam Dorman fox-news/world/world-regions/france fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world/united-nations fox-news/world/environment/climate-change fox news fnc/world fnc bc89837d-5d97-5be4-8beb-ab1711eb4c00 article

Protesters around the world disrupted Black Friday shopping in order to draw attention to climate change days before the United Nations met to discuss the issue in Madrid.

The retail holiday saw protests in a long list of countries — including France, Germany, the United States — with some activists entering stores and holding mock funerals. Near Paris, climate demonstrators blocked a shopping mall and gathered in from of Amazon’s headquarters to protest over-production they say is killing the planet.

To many activists, Black Friday is the epitome of this shift, a purely commercial event designed to boost U.S. retailers ahead of the Christmas holidays, the symbol of capitalism run amok.

“We are living in a system of endless consumerism,” the group Extinction Rebellion NYC tweeted on Friday. “Earth cannot sustain that, especially as we accelerate towards climate and ecological catastrophe.”

HARVARD-YALE CLIMATE CHANGE PROTEST AT FOOTBALL GAME SEES 42 CHARGED, OFFICIALS SAY

The group posted photos and videos purportedly showing activists protesting the holiday.

Protesters also reportedly shut down streets in Vancouver, Canada for a mock funeral procession.

The Sunrise Movement, a group that’s helped promote the Green New Deal, swarmed the large Water Tower Place shopping mall in Chicago.

CLIMATE ACTIVISTS TURN UP THE HEAT ON ELECTED DEMS, CRITICIZE INACTION

In Washington, D.C., actress Jane Fonda led yet another protest as part of a series called “Fire Drill Fridays.” In a post retweeted by Fonda, the group cliamed that “38 people were arrested demanding food justice.” Activists also reportedly planned to hold a “Black Friday Funeral for the Future” on Capitol Hill in order to “eulogize and mourn all that has been lost and all that is threatened by the climate crisis.

Climate change protests seemed to intensify in the fall with thousands skipping school during September’s climate strike. Activist Greta Thunberg also appeared at a United Nations meeting where she vehemently denounced politicians for inaction on climate change.

And last week, nearly 260 groups sent a letter requesting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Ill., pursue policies like the Green New Deal instead of “incremental or isolated policy tweaks.”

HARVARD STUDENT BLASTS CLIMATE CHANGE PROTESTERS FOR DELAYING HARVARD-YALE FOOTBALL GAME WITH ‘EMPTY ACTIVISM’

According to The Washington Post, the group Extinction Rebellion held a hunger strike in an attempt to force the speaker into a video-recorded meeting. When they realized she was planning to leave D.C., the protesters attempted to storm past her office’s entrance and into a broader room where her chief of staff sat.

Also last week, climate protesters delayed a Harvard-Yale football game when they occupied the field and demanded the Ivy League schools divest from the fossil fuel industry.

The disruptions will likely continue as the United Nations meets to discuss the issue in Madrid on Monday.

The United Nations offered what it called “bleak” findings Tuesday as it warned that the world was headed toward global “extinction” and would need to increase its efforts “fivefold” if nations wanted to reach the temperature reduction goal outlined in the Paris climate agreement.

AGGRESSIVE CLIMATE CHANGE PROTESTS HIT MAJOR CITIES IN EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, MORE THAN 300 ARRESTED

The United States recently filed paperwork to officially remove itself from the multilateral agreement. Conservatives, meanwhile, have warned about economic consequences of large-scale reform and pointed to failed, historical climate predictions as reasons for avoiding drastic change.

According to AP, Quang Paasch of the activist group Fridays for Future said governments attending next week’s annual climate conference should keep in mind the goals of the 2015 Paris accord, which set a target of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit). “We need to keep taking to the streets, we need to defend Paris.”

In Berlin, about two dozen environmental activists jumped into the chilly waters of the Spree river in front of parliament to protest a government-backed package of measures they say won’t be enough to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. The package was blocked Friday by Germany’s upper house, which represents the country’s 16 states.

Later, tens of thousands of students rallied in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

Apple Bends To Russia, Recognizes Crimea Annexation On Maps App

Westlake Legal Group 5de1abb7210000a0a334e902 Apple Bends To Russia, Recognizes Crimea Annexation On Maps App

MOSCOW/KIEV, Nov 27 (Reuters) – Ukraine said on Wednesday Apple did not “give a damn” about its pain, after the U.S. tech giant began referring to the Russian-annexed Crimean peninsula as part of Russia in its Maps and Weather apps for Russian users.

Russia and Ukraine have both been highly sensitive to the way global companies identify Crimea, since Russian troops seized the territory and Moscow annexed it after a referendum that Kiev and its Western allies say was illegal.

Apple appeared to have changed the way it displays locations in Crimea in its software, in a nod to Russian politicians who have demanded the peninsula be referred to as part of Russia.

Reuters reporters in Moscow who typed the name of the Crimean provincial capital Simferopol into Apple’s Maps and Weather apps on Wednesday saw it displayed as “Simferopol, Crimea, Russia.” Users elsewhere ― including in Ukraine’s capital Kiev and in Crimea itself ― see locations in Crimea displayed without specifying which country they belong to.

“Let me explain in your terms, Apple,” Ukraine’s foreign minister, Vadym Prystaiko, wrote on Twitter in English. “Imagine you’re crying out that your design and ideas, years of work and piece of your heart are stolen by your worst enemy, but then somebody ignorant doesn’t give a damn about your pain.

“That’s how it feels when you call Crimea a Russian land.”

Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov called the change a “huge scandal.”

“Regionalization of facts is unacceptable appeasement,” he tweeted on Wednesday.

Apple’s Russia division did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

The EU and United States do not recognize Crimea as Russian and have imposed sanctions against the peninsula and individuals they accuse of violating Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, reported on Wednesday that the head of the committee on security and anti-corruption, Vasily Piskaryov, had held a meeting with an Apple representative.

According to a report on the State Duma website, Piskaryov said: “Apple has fulfilled its obligations and brought the programs on its devices in line with the requirements of Russian law.”

Sia removes famous wig to buy groceries for holiday shoppers at Walmart: ‘The heart, beautiful soul you have’

‘Tis the season of giving.

Sia got into the holiday spirit on Thursday when the pop star picked up the tab for several shoppers in a Palm Springs, Calif., Walmart in a moment captured by fans and shared on social media.

While arriving at the packed retail chain in the California desert, the Australian songstress told shoppers and staff her name was “Ci Ci” and claimed to have won the lottery, thus the reason for her being in such a giving mood, this according to a Twitter post showing a 15-second clip of the “Chandelier” performer hugging total strangers while donning an olive-colored overcoat, a blue-and-purple tie-dye sweater and black pants — notably sans her famous black-and-white wig.

COUNTRY STAR KELSEA BALLERINI SURPRISES BLIND BOY BATTLING CANCER WITH SPECIAL GIFT

The video has been viewed more than 3.5 million times as of Friday night.

The 43-year-old singer has long been recognized for sporting the two-tone wig that completely obscures her face and disallows anyone from seeing her true identity. But her plainclothes look wasn’t enough to thwart one eagle-eyed fan from spotting her in the flesh.

SIA TWEETS PHOTO OF HER BARE BUTT AFTER HEARING IMAGE WAS BEING SHOPPED AROUND

One woman claiming she was among the cornucopia of customers to have their groceries covered by the nine-time Grammy-nominee shared her experience on Twitter, writing: “So @Sia paid for my groceries today thank you so much!! The heart and beautiful soul you have for paying for everyone!! I’m sorry for telling everyone once I realized who you were !! But this kindness must be acknowledged!!!”

The user also shared another video captured by an additional shopper, which showed the “Never Give Up” artist cradling a bouquet of flowers, seemingly a token of gratitude from a lucky customer.

“Who’s next?” Sia asks as she prepares her credit card for another pass at the register.

SIA SURPRISES MADDIE ZIEGLER WITH SPECIAL 16TH BIRTHDAY GIFT

While many on social media lauded the makeup-free singer for her selflessness, calling Sia “an angel” and “the kindest person in all music industry,” others were quick to take the gesture with a grain of salt and questioned the sincerity of her actions.

“When done without recognition it’s beautiful thing, with national news recognition it’s called publicity…..who even cares,” tweeted one skeptic.

SIA REVEALS BATTLE WITH NEUROLOGICAL DISEASE, HAS BEEN LIVING WITH ‘CHRONIC PAIN’

Other fans tried to make the connection to a $1 million donation that was reportedly made to an advocacy group centered on tackling Ehlers-Danlos syndrome — a neurological disease that Sia, along with Lena Dunham and actress Jameela Jamil, share in common and have been outspoken about supporting.

“Y’all the Ehlers Danlos Society got an anonymous donation of one million dollars!!!,” the tweet read. “Lowkey wondering if it was Sia.”

Lawrence Jones: Trump will ‘filet’ Biden in 2020 general election

With moderate Democratic presidential candidates topping recent polls, “The Five” discussed whether  the Democratic Party has come “back to reality” and moved away from the “far-left” candidates in their party.

“I think the bottom line is, is that the Democratic Party voters, they want to win,” co-host Lawrence Jones said Friday. “And they realize that the socialism, no matter how crazy the activists and the Twitter activists are, they want to beat the president.”

BIDEN RETAKES LEAD IN NEW POLL AS WARREN’S NUMBERS PLUMMET, BUTTIGIEG GAINS GROUND

A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s numbers slashed in half from 28 percent to 14 percent from the month before. After leading the pack in Quinnipiac’s October poll – which was seen as a sign of her surge in the race – Warren’s 14-point drop has her now in third place behind former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Co-host Dana Perino believe’s the party’s more centrist voters are now paying attention to the race.

“Early on in a primary process the most active is wing of your party is going to be the most active. And then as you get now, we’re 65 days till the first votes in Iowa,” Perino said. “Now everybody else starts paying a little bit more attention.”

Jones pointed out frontrunner Biden was problematic for Democrats.

“But it’s still problematic for them because Joe Biden is a weak candidate,” Jones said, calling him “wounded.”

The Fox Nation host predicted Biden would win the nomination but would ultimately fall to President Trump in the 2020 general election.

“I think it’s going to be Joe Biden at the end of the day,” Jones said. “And I think the president is going to filet him.”

H&M tests clothing rental service to address environmental concern

H&M has decided to test out a clothing rental service as the fashion industry faces environmental concerns over its contribution to waste and pollution.

The move by the Swedish fashion giant follows brands Banana Republic and Urban Outfitters, which both launched similar services earlier this year to tap into a market that reached $1 billion in 2018, according to Bloomberg.

H&M’s clothing rental service, which is so far only available at its flagship store in Stockholm, is limited to a collection of 50 garments offered to members of its loyalty program.

The retail company will assess the trial in three months before deciding to expand any further. The store will also provide repair services, a coffee shop and a beauty bar.

“We have a huge belief in rental, but we still want to test and learn quite a lot and do tweaks and changes,” H&M Head of Business Development Daniel Claesson said in a presentation at the flagship.

The clothing industry has faced mounting criticisms after a United Nations report indicated that it was responsible for as much as 10 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and consumes more energy than aviation and shipping combined.

Former ‘RHOC’ star Alexis Bellino slammed for calling out ‘maids’ in Instagram post: ‘Stop being lazy’

Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Alexis Bellino is being taken to task over an Instagram post admonishing her maids for their cleaning, or lack thereof.

“When your couch accidentally disconnects and you realize your maids aren’t doing deep cleaning. Found 2 socks too…  😂🤦🏼‍♀️🤔,” Bellino, 42, captioned an interior photo that showed pillow feathers, paper cutouts of ‘peace’ signs and a blue mechanical pencil on the floor by her leather sofa.

However, Bellino’s comments about her living room not being cleaned properly did not sit well with many followers who slammed the reality star for calling out her employees.

“Stop being lazy and crying about your 1st world problems. Clean it yourself,” one commenter wrote in response to Bellino’s post, while another echoed the sentiment, adding, “Who says that?? This isn’t gross … you are … #unfollow.”

Another commenter noted Bellino’s timing of her post, which she shared a day after Thanksgiving and questioned if the “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” alum was even grateful for her blessings.

“Why would you post this? So much for being thankful huh? This makes you even more unlikable…,” wrote the user.

Additionally, some followers felt that Bellino could have used different verbiage than calling the cleaners maids and felt the term was demeaning.

“Maid is such a trashy word. You sound really privileged,” one person wrote, another adding, “Let’s call them house keepers instead. It sounds better.”

Despite the onslaught of criticism, some users actually agreed with Bellino and jumped to her point that paying for a service should mean that the service be performed properly.

“If you are paying someone for a service, that’s unacceptable,” one fan said.
