Two Killed as Learjet Crashes Into New Jersey Buildings

Source: NBC NEWS

Two crew members were killed and several buildings were set ablaze when a Learjet carrying no passengers crashed Monday while trying to land at a New Jersey airport, authorities said.

The Federal Aviation Administration told NBC News that the plane, which was flying from Philadelphia International Airport, went down about a quarter-mile short of Teterboro Airport in Carlstadt, about 15 miles northeast of Newark, at 3:30 p.m. ET. Carlstadt police told NBC New York that neither crew member survived.

The airport, a major hub for general aviation in the New York region, was closed as thick smoke poured from the scene.

White House claims they were fooled, suckered, or hoodwinked by the Russians today.

From WAPO:

Presence of Russian photographer in Oval Office raises alarms
By Carol Morello and Greg Miller May 10 at 9:23 PM

A photographer for a Russian state-owned news agency was allowed into the Oval Office on Wednesday during President Trump’s meeting with Russian diplomats, a level of access that was criticized by former U.S. intelligence officials as a potential security breach.

The administration official also said the White House had been misled about the role of the Russian photographer. Russian officials had described the individual as Lavrov’s official photographer without disclosing that he also worked for Tass.

“We were not informed by the Russians that their official photographer was dual-hatted and would be releasing the photographs on the state news agency,” the administration official said.

As a result, White House officials said they were surprised to see photos posted online showing Trump not only with Lavrov but also smiling and shaking hands with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

What A Way To Go: Life at the end of Empire

"One of the most important movies of our time"

This doc just supports and solidifies what I already have learned, observed, researched, pondered, read, and realized for the last 30 years... And sadly, no, Jesus is not coming to save us! The only thing that keeps me from laughing and stating the proverbial "I told you so," is the fact I have a 6 1/2 year old son (who I love much more than Jesus), he breaks my heart with his love and concern for the planet already, asking and reminding me to recycle... while I know that unchecked population growth and capitalism will destroy what once was a unique and beautiful planet, and likely leave him a unpleasant future. We have only ourselves to blame...

He isn't teaching New Age platitudes or building a fanatical following; instead, he is quietly uncovering the hidden history of our planet, redefining the fall of man, and retracing a path of human spirituality that extends millions of years into the past. From the beginning, Fr. Osborne is stunned, outraged, and awed by the simplicity and profundity of B's teachings. Is B merely a heretic--or is he the Antichrist sent to seduce humanity not with wickedness, but with ideas more alluring than those of traditional religion? With surprising twists and fascinating characters, The Story of B answers this question as it sends readers on an intellectual journey that will forever change the way they view spirituality, human history, and, indeed, the state of our present world.

Skillz - 2016 Rap Up

Just like every year since at least 2010, Skillz revisits the stories that shaped our culture. In his new song "2016 Rap Up," rapper Skillz recaps the past calendar with aplomb. Spitting over an old school beat, Skillz gives his verdict on an eventful -- some will say crazy -- 12 months saying "they keep shooting Black men but wouldn't shoot killer clowns."

That line pretty much sums up Skillz's opinion on what 2016 brought us. The track comes off as a list of every absurd iteration of reality Americans were subjected to, like a dream you can't wake up to. The song culminates in Trump's unanticipated victory in the presidential elections and the hopes that pros will take back the reigns in 2017.

Clinton campaign sends legal warning on ads claiming she's 'under investigation'

Source: CNN

(CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign sent cease-and-desist letters to broadcasters advising that they shouldn't air ads from pro-Donald Trump PACs that include the claim that Clinton is "under investigation by the FBI."
The letters were dated Sunday, the same day the FBI announced that it was sticking by its conclusion that no charges were recommended against Clinton following completion of a review of recently discovered emails belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

"These ads falsely claim Secretary Clinton is under investigation by the FBI," said the letter from Marc Elias, general counsel for the Clinton campaign. A copy of the letter was read to CNN by a recipient.
The letter lists some pro-Trump PACs, including Rebuilding America Now and Future 45, and the titles of ads they are funding.
