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.

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

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

Westlake Legal Group jail-45-plate Texas man receives 'nasty' messages after DMV revokes 'Jail 45' license plate: report fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us fox-news/auto fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 5adfd672-f76a-5b5e-a084-911dcf2f6da8

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.

TEXAS MAN, 18, SHOT AT HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL GAME HAS DIED

“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.

A manhunt was underway Sunday night after two people were killed and five others were injured following a shooting during a concert at a San Antonio club, Texas authorities said.

Police said officers were called shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday to the Ventura, a music venue located along San Antonio’s Museum Reach portion of the River Walk.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said an argument broke out inside of the club between a group of individuals and one person pulled out a gun and started shooting.

The Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in Miami next month, after dominating the Tennessee Titans and the Green Bay Packers, respectively, in their conference championship games on Sunday.

Kansas City ends a 50-year drought

The Kansas City Chiefs knocked out the Tennessee Titans 35-24 in the AFC Championship game on Sunday to secure their first trip to the Super Bowl in 50 years.

The Titans jumped to an early 17-7 lead in the first half, but Kansas City clawed their way back propelled by the play of star quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns. Mahomes, who was born a quarter century after the Chiefs’ last trip to the Super Bowl, sealed the game with a fourth quarter, 60-yard pass to wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

“We’re not done yet,” Mahomes said after the game. “We’re going to get it.”

The victory was made extra sweet for Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, who after the game got to hoist the Lamar Hunt Trophy — named after his father and the team’s founder — which was presented to him for the AFC title.

“This trophy belongs to the best fans in the National Football League,” Hunt said to the hometown crowd at Arrowhead Stadium.

“We love every minute of this, and we appreciate every minute of this, but it’s not done,” added Chiefs coach Andy Reid, whose last Super Bowl trip with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004 ended in a New England Patriots victory.

It’s the Chiefs’ third attempt chasing Super Bowl title, having done so successfully once in 1970. The Chiefs lost to the Packers, 35-10, in the first-ever Super Bowl in 1967. Three years later, Kansas City took their first Super Bowl victory in a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

Niners dominate early

In the rivalry NFC Championship game that followed, the San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 37-20. 49ers running back Raheem Mostert sent San Francisco on the road to Miami with three touchdowns in the first half alone.

The Green Bay Packers came charging back with a late surge. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers finally put Packers on the board in the third quarter, when he got the first of two touchdown passes he needed to carry his total playoff touchdowns to 40, surpassing Brett Favre’s franchise record of 39.

In another touching father-son moment, former Super Bowl-winning coach Mike Shanahan, urged by 49ers owner Jed York, got to hand the George Halas Trophy to his son and the team’s coach, Kyle Shanahan.

“We can win so many different ways,” said Niners quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, after playing a relatively idle game. “Raheem [Mostert], those guys up front, the tight ends obviously were just dominating tonight. It was fun.”

“I just woke up like it was any other game,” Mostert said. “Once we all get in a groove, we’re just going to keep it riding, keep it going, and that’s what we did.”

The Niners emerge Super Bowl-bound for the first time since Colin Kaepernick paved the way seven years ago. In the franchise’s six previous Super Bowl appearances, the 49ers have only blown the title once.

Where to watch

The big game is set to take place at Hard Rock Stadium, the home of the Miami Dolphins on Feb. 2. FOX will air the game, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET. Demi Lovato is signed on to sing the national anthem at the pregame show; Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will take the halftime stage.

New York Times editorial board endorses Warren, Klobuchar for president

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6119872406001_6119872308001-vs New York Times editorial board endorses Warren, Klobuchar for president fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 82fe4224-1b56-52ee-b76b-4b24157ce415

The New York Times announced late Sunday that its editorial board was breaking “from convention” and will endorse two candidates for president in 2020: Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

The paper’s endorsement has traditionally been one of the most coveted for a Democratic politician. The editorial board wrote that in choosing these two candidates, it recognizes that both “radical” and “realist” models should be considered.

The paper said it spent more than 12 hours with the candidates before coming to its conclusion.

“The history of the editorial board would suggest that we would side squarely with the candidate with a more traditional approach to pushing the nation forward, within the realities of a constitutional framework and a multiparty country,” the editorial read. “But the events of the past few years have shaken the confidence of even the most committed institutionalists. We are not veering away from the values we espouse, but we are rattled by the weakness of the institutions that we trusted to undergird those values.”

The paper called Warren a “gifted storyteller” who has “emerged as a standard-bearer for the Democratic left.” The editorial board called her path to the White House is “challenging, but not hard to envision.”

Warren reposted the article on Twitter, joking, “So I guess @AmyKlobuchar and I are now both undefeated in New York Times endorsements!”

Klobuchar was described as the “standard-bearer,” but for the party’s center. The paper gushed that she is the very definition of “Midwestern charisma, grit and sticktoitiveness.”

The paper pointed to her goals of slashing childhood poverty, achieve 100 percent net-zero emissions by 2050 and her push for a more robust public option in healthcare. He moderate approach to governing would make for a formidable deal maker in Washington, the editorial wrote.

Reports on how she treats her staff “gave us pause,” but she pledged to do better in the future, the paper wrote.

Perhaps as important as who the paper endorsed is who it did not.

Joe Biden, the former vice president who continues to lead in polls, but his agenda does not go far enough on issues like climate and health care, the board wrote. The editorial board also wrote that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., appeared to have missed his moment. The paper pointed out that he would be 79 when he’s sworn in and has recently suffered a heart attack. “His health is a serious concern,” it wrote.

The paper said it is looking forward to watching South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg develop as a politician and said it was impressed with his resume, but it also pointed out that he never won more than 11,000 votes. The paper said it hopes Andrew Yang, the entrepreneur, also continues to work in politics and recommended looking to New York to get started.

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor who the editorial board endorsed twice, falls short of the editorial board’s aspirations for 2020. The editorial pointed to issues like barring his own media company from investigating him and his refusal to let women who signed nondisclosure settlements speak to the media. The paper said his campaign approach “reveals more about America’s broken system than his likelihood of fixing it.”
