Florida no longer part of controversial national voter data project

For those following the issue of voter fraud nationwide, this fact-check by PunditFact of a claim by Fox News commentator Dick Morris is a must-read.

Morris said that “probably over a million people” voted twice in the 2012 general election nationwide. PunditFact rated that False -- and you can read the full report here.

Morris was referring to data from a project dubbed Interstate Crosscheck run by Republican Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

As of 2013, 28 states sent voter information to Kansas where the record of each of their voters is run against the records in all the other participating states. They are matched on first name, last name, date of birth and Social Security number.


We didn't take out the runways.


Important detail - We didn't take out the runways. The only logical reason for that is to accommodate Russia. Is this really as it appears?

Dont believe a word Trump says about Syria

or anything else for that matter

We all knew this moment would come.

Donald Trump, a serial, pathological liar, faced with an international crisis, would need to communicate a message to the world about that crisis and we would have to choose rather or not to believe him.

Thursday night, without the very congressional approval that Trump once said Obama needed to strike Syria, he ordered airstrikes on a Syrian airfield, reportedly in retaliation for recent chemical attacks against citizens in the country. Trump said it was when he saw the images of children dying and suffering from the attacks on television that he decided he must act.

I don’t believe him. Not even a little bit.


U.S. Strategic Command tweets Breitbart article from official Defense Department account

The federal agency responsible for the nuclear arsenal is now promoting articles from a white nationalist website

The U.S. Strategic Command, a branch of the Department of Defense in charge of the nuclear arsenal, tweeted out an article from Breitbart News this week. The ultra-conservative website has been known as “the platform for the alt-right,” running headlines like “WOULD YOU RATHER YOUR CHILD HAD FEMINISM OR CANCER” and publishing certain stories under the tag “Black Crime.”



Trump eyes new chief of staff; House Leader on short list

President Trump is considering a broad shakeup of his White House that could include the replacement of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and the departure of chief strategist Steve Bannon, aides and advisers tell us.

A top aide to Trump said he's contemplating major changes, but that the situation is very fluid and the timing uncertain: "Things are happening, but it's very unclear the president's willing to pull that trigger."


220 Cities Losing All Passenger Train Service per Trump Elimination of all Federal Funding for Amtra

The National Association of Rail Passengers denounced the budget outline released by the Trump Administration, which slashes investment in transportation infrastructure. These cuts to Amtrak, transit, and commuter rail programs, and even air service to rural towns, would not only cost construction and manufacturing jobs, but place a disproportionate amount of pain on rural and working class communities.

“It’s ironic that President Trump’s first budget proposal undermines the very communities whose economic hardship and sense of isolation from the rest of the country helped propel him into office,” said NARP President Jim Mathews. “These working class communities — many of them located in the Midwest and the South — were tired of being treated like ‘flyover country.’ But by proposing the elimination of Amtrak’s long distance trains, the Trump Administration does them one worse, cutting a vital service that connects these small town economies to the rest of the U.S. These hard working, small town Americans don’t have airports or Uber to turn to; they depend on these trains.”

"What’s more, these proposed cuts come as President Trump continues to promise that our tax dollars will be invested in rebuilding America's infrastructure,” continued Mathews. “Instead, we have seen an all-out assault on any project — public and private — that would advance passenger rail. These cuts and delays are costing the U.S. thousands of good-paying construction and manufacturing jobs in America's heartland at this very moment."

Mathews was referring to the decision by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to indefinitely suspend a grant that would allow California to proceed with a commuter rail electrification project. Caltrain, the agency overseeing the project, estimates the project would create 9,600 total direct and indirect jobs. The delay also threatens the construction of a new railcar assembly plant planned for Salt Lake City, which would generate sustainable, family-wage jobs for 550 employees.

Irony Alert: Kentucky coal museum switching to solar power

(CNN)You wouldn't expect a museum dedicated to the coal industry to run on anything other than coal -- but a mining museum in Kentucky is soon to be solar powered.

The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum in Benham, owned by Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College, is switching to solar power to save money. The museum, which memorializes Kentucky's history in coal mining, is modernizing with a new form of cheaper energy.

Communications director Brandon Robinson told CNN affiliate WYMT that the project "will help save at least eight to ten thousand dollars, off the energy costs on this building alone."

Robinson also said that the project was funded through an outside foundation, WYMT reported. The project includes 20 solar panels installed by Bluegrass Solar.
