Plane Dumps 30 Tons of Fuel Mid-Flight in Emergency Landing to Save Passenger’s Life

Crew members attempted to assist the woman, who was transferred from economy class to business class so she could receive more attention. However, her breathing became worse and she lapsed into unconsciousness.

“The situation had not improved after help from a doctor on board”, according to a statement by the airline.

In a bid to save the passenger’s life, the pilot decided to dump fuel, enabling the plane to land in Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in Alaska.

Video shows 2-year-old ejected from back window of vehicle

The accident happened on Sunday around 5pm. According to Winter Haven Police, the 23-year-old driver of a silver Buick LeSabre was traveling with her two small children, ages 2 and 3.

Police say that driver was stopped at the stop sign on the corner of Avenue K NW and Highway 17 for approximately 32 seconds before she pulled out into the path of a maroon Ford F-150.

Police: Teen injured in bike crash, driver assaulted by friends

When police arrived, the paramedic told them that friends of the injured teen rode up on their bikes, and began arguing with the 32-year-old driver. One of them had reached through the open car window, and punched the diver. As the friend tried to run, officers pulled up and grabbed him. He was also 15-years-old.

Anti-abortion lawmakers lay groundwork for Roe challenge

Emboldened by the Trump administration and possible changes to the makeup of the Supreme Court, more states are looking at laws that would ban abortion at a certain point in pregnancy.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant (R) signed a bill earlier this month banning abortions after 15 weeks. If it survives legal challenge, it would be the earliest ban in the country.

Indiana Gov. Signs Historic Pro-Life Bill: Killing Unborn Babies Is Murder

America’s abortion laws are one giant case-study in cognitive dissonance. If a pregnant woman is murdered, laws in some of the most liberal states call it double-homicide; however, if the woman were to “terminate” that same child just moments before, it’s called empowerment.

Trying to bring some sanity into this bizarre equation, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a law on Sunday allowing for “murder charges to be brought against unborn babies who are victims of secondary violence,” according to LifeNews.

Thomas More Law Center Offers Free Legal Assistance to Student Organized Pro-Life Walk Outs

The walkout is scheduled to take place on April 11, 2018 at 10:00am and last for 17 minutes to honor the lives of the millions of children lost to abortion. In March, approximately 3,000 public schools across the nation gave students permission to walk out of classes to protest gun control laws as an expression of their free speech. In response, Brandon Gillespie, announced his plans for a comparable free speech pro-life demonstration.

Maryland redistricting case comes before Supreme Court

The justices are hearing arguments Wednesday in an appeal filed by Republicans in Maryland. They complain that Democrats who controlled the state government in 2011 drew a congressional district for the express purpose of ousting the Republican incumbent and replacing him with a Democrat.

In Wisconsin, Democrats are challenging legislative districts drawn by Republicans statewide. Those districts gave Republicans a huge majority in a state that otherwise is closely divided between the parties.

Kansas Legislation Proposes Making Schools Liable If They Won’t Allow Armed Teachers

Rep. Blake Carpenter, a Republican who helped write the legislation, pointed out to the House Insurance Committee that in many cases, it could take precious minutes for police to arrive in case of an imminent attack, and in smaller districts in which school-resource officers aren’t hired because of a lack of funding, the bill would allow for the “next best thing,” adding, “It is not, if our kids will be killed. It is, when will they be killed and what are we doing to prevent it?”

DOJ Inspector General reviews alleged FISA abuses by DOJ, FBI

The Office of the Inspector General released a statement Wednesday outlining the start of the review.

“The OIG will initiate a review that will examine the Justice Department’s and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s compliance with legal requirements, and with applicable DOJ and FBI policies and procedures, in applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) relating to a certain U.S. person,”

Despite media narrative, study says teenagers made up just 10 percent of March for Our Lives crowd

“My research tells a different story about who participated in the March for Our Lives — and it is more complicated and less well-packaged for prime time,” University of Maryland sociology professor Dana R. Fisher wrote in a Wednesday story for the Washington Post.

Fisher’s study indicates that — while news coverage focused on the teenagers marching for gun control in the wake of last month’s shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — 90 percent of the crowd was actually adults. She said the average age of adults in the crowd was just under 49.

Arizona police department mounts AR-15 rifles on backs of some motorcycles

At least eight of the department’s motorcycles now have a mount on the backs where officers can place the rifle. Tempe Police Sgt. Ronald Elcock told KNXV that the department tested the mounts for a few months before deciding to implement them.

The reasoning, he said, is to equip the officers with something more powerful than a handgun, as motorcycle officers are typically the first to arrive at a crime scene.

FACEBOOK WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO CONTROL YOUR PERSONAL DATA

As part of Wednesday’s privacy changes, Facebook redesigned its settings menu on mobile devices so that privacy options are available in a single place, rather than spread out across nearly 20 different screens. Facebook will also let users download more of their information than before, so they can see and manage the personal data they’ve shared with Facebook (including new categories such as likes, comments, reactions, search history, and location history), and transfer it to another service, if they choose.

Facebook thinks it knows whether you’re liberal or conservative: Here’s how to find out

Hidden in plain sight under Ad Preferences is a section called Your Information. If you click on that tab, you’ll see an option for Your Categories, which contains a section called US Politics — in parentheses, Facebook will have you labeled as Very Liberal, Liberal, Moderate, Conservative or Very Conservative.

The social network says it fills up these categories “based on information you’ve provided on Facebook and other activity.”

‘Roseanne’s’ pro-Trump reboot draws massive audience for politically-charged premiere

The typically liberal ABC brought back “Roseanne” after a 20-year hiatus on Tuesday to a massive audience, with a 5.1 rating in the key demo of adults age 18-49 and 18.1 million viewers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show’s revival proved that the Conners are not immune to the changing political times. The show, starring a pro-Trump title character, was “the highest-rated regularly-scheduled scripted show of the last few seasons, as well as the highest-rated sitcom in recent memory,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The trade magazine wrote that “Roseanne” dominated every other program on broadcast television on Tuesday night.

Aunt of Cop Killed by Illegal Immigrant Applauds Death Sentence: ‘He’s a Monster’

Trump says administration ‘stands in solidarity’ with Orange County in fight over California’s ‘sanctuary’ law

President Trump on Wednesday said his administration “stands in solidarity” with a California county pushing back against the state’s policies offering ‘sanctuary’ to illegal immigrants.

Orange County has become the center of national attention after it announced a series of measures to push back against a controversial law that limits cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

Trump to end deportation protection for Liberians

Liberians have been eligible for Deferred Enforcement Departure since 1999. The program, which began under President Bill Clinton, and was extended during the Bush and Obama administrations, allows people from the country to live and work legally in the U.S. It’s similar to another program called “Temporary Protected Status,” which the Trump administration also has worked to scale back.

In a memorandum issued Tuesday, President Donald Trump said Liberia is “no longer experiencing armed conflict” and has made “significant progress in restoring stability and democratic governance.”

Commentary/Opinion:

Liz Peek: Census 2020 – Liberals, get over it, we must ask about citizenship!

People who are not citizens are not allowed to vote. So why should they be given representation in Congress? Should Arizona get more seats in the House because it has a large population of undocumented people, giving it more clout than Maine, for instance, that has few?

No, it should not. But it does now.

State leaders are increasingly choosing to allow a large portion of their populations to be people who have entered the country illegally.

California, most conspicuously, has made that choice, granting sanctuary to illegal residents and granting such people numerous benefits and rights. As a consequence, the state is home to about 2.5 million unauthorized people, making up about 6 percent of California’s population.
