SURPRISE! LLWS Champs Ride On Air Force One With President Trump

President Trump gave the Little League World Champion Eastbank Little League Team a surprise ride back to Louisiana on Air Force One. 

The team traveled to Washington to meet with the president today in the White House. 

At the meeting, Trump reportedly asked the team members' parents if the team could hop on Air Force One for the ride back to Louisiana since Trump was already headed to the state for a campaign rally. 

The team met the president on the tarmac outside of Air Force One this afternoon, and they all ascended onto the plane together.

Editor's note: Earlier today we posted a video of the rally that showed President Trump had also invited the team up on stage at the rally. 

Internet Abuzz – Schiff’s Ukrainian Hoax Linked to Members of Obama’s NSC Including Eric Ciaramella and Charles Kupchan


The Deep State is doing all they can to damage President Trump before news comes out about the many criminal acts by the Obama Administration, the Democrat Party, the Deep State, Global Elites and the corrupt mainstream media.

The Deep State’s latest act is called either ‘Russia.2’ or ‘Ukraine Collusion Hoax’. In their latest effort to remove the President, the lying Adam Schiff speaking for all Democrats declared that a CIA ‘whistleblower’ had dirt on President Trump concerning his phone call with the newly elected Ukrainian President.


BUFFOON: In May Joe Biden Said China’s Not A Threat – Now Says Trump Too Weak On China

If the Democrats nominate Joe Biden, they are not only going to lose in 2020, they are going to look stupid doing it.

In May of this year, Joe Biden told America that China represents no threat to the United States.

Now he is calling them human rights abusers and saying that Trump is weak for not standing up to them.

So which is it Joe?


Officials warn against vaping THC over fears it is causing mystery lung illnesses dubbed 'EVALI'

As cases of vaping-linked lung illnesses mount to nearly 1,300 in the US, officials still don't know what in e-cigarettes is making people sick.

But vaping THC is a common thread in 76 percent of the reported illnesses, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are urging all Americans: 'Do not use e-cigarette or vaping products that contain THC.'

It's a slightly stepped-up warning and comes as early tests of confiscated cartridges and e-liquids found some have THC concentrations as high as 77 percent. On average, they were about 41 percent THC - still twice what's in a pot plant.

Two Ohio teens charged in death of woman struck by falling 74-pound log

Two 16-year-old boys were arrested Thursday on charges of reckless homicide in the death last month of a woman who was struck by a falling six-foot log at an Ohio state park.

It was initially believed Victoria Shafer’s death was an accident, but investigators soon determined the log that hit her had been pushed or thrown off a cliff at Hocking Hills State Park in Logan.

Shafer, a 44-year-old professional photographer from Chillicothe, Ohio, was taking photographs with five of her students when the log, weighing 74 pounds, fell more than 75 feet off the cliff and struck her as she was sitting on a staircase, Fickel said. She was killed instantly.


'Tackle football is like smoking'

A gut-wrenching public service announcement shows youth football players in crisp uniforms puffing on cigarettes, comparing tackle ball to smoking because both do more damage the earlier kids start.

In the case of football, that's brain damage, linked to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, the devastating disease thought to have driven late NFL player Aaron Hernandez to suicide in 2017.

Similarly, the lungs never grow to their full potential if you start smoking before age 25, when they stop developing.

CTE is cause by repeated head traumas, and brains don't bounce back from injury as well under the age of 12, studies suggest.

Stephen Miller Brilliantly Destroys Liberal Reporters Defending Biden Crime Family Ukraine Corruption, “It’s Substantiated!”

Trump White House advisor Stephen Miller on Friday took on the den of media vipers and brilliantly destroyed them with facts about Hunter and Joe Biden’s corruption involving their dealings in Ukraine.

Stephen Miller is a brilliant debater — anyone who tries to debate him gets crushed.

“I think Adam Schiff, and I think the entire House Democratic caucus, is humiliating and embarrassing themselves,” Stephen Miller told liberal reporters at the White House.

“They’re running these secret sham proceedings, a violation of every principle of justice, due process and fairness that is embedded in our constitution and our cultural history and centuries of legal precedent,” he added.



Oak Park trustee Susan Buchanan told her male colleagues, “you are a white male….so shut up!” during a board meeting on racial equity.

Buchanan, who is white, even lectured a Palestinian migrant, Oak Park Mayor Anan Abu-Taleb, telling him, “Your skin is light enough. Stop it!”

The outburst prompted a round of applause from citizens who attended the meeting.

“You have been white from birth,” Buchanan told fellow trustees Dan Moroney and Deno Andrews. “Why are you arguing what is a system of oppression? You’ve never experienced one, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you! Just stop Dan, just stop Deno. You are not oppressed and people in Oak Park and we are trying to recognize that as a community.”


UTOPIA: Rotting Fish, Spotty Internet and Closed Businesses on Day 3 of Deliberate California Power Outages

More than 1.5 million Californians on Thursday were without power after Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) cut off electricity to even more residents in order to ‘prevent dangerous wildfires.’

On Wednesday, 800,000 people in 3 dozen counties in Northern California were cut off from electricity for their ‘own safety’ and these residents are living in chaos because they have no idea when the electricity will be restored.

Rotting fish, spotty internet and closed businesses mark day 3 of the deliberate power outages in Gavin Newsom’s Socialist utopia of California.

Via a Bloomberg reporter in Northern California:
On Thursday morning, I managed to squeeze a few emails out of Verizon’s hobbled network from home before signing off to tend to our 1-year-old daughter and make the trek into San Francisco. I walked into the nursery to find Sophie’s hands and feet were freezing. So much for our natural gas-fueled heating system. A frantic Google search tells me that, while these systems indeed depend on gas, they’re designed to automatically shut off during power outages.

'Extreme intolerance is un-American': Ben Sasse blasts Beto O'Rourke for threatening to tax 'sincere Christians, Jews, and Muslims'

Sen. Ben Sasse tore into Beto O'Rourke after the former Texas congressman called for the taxing of churches that refuse to support gay marriage.

"This extreme intolerance is un-American. The whole point of the First Amendment is that, no matter who you love and where you worship, everyone is created with dignity and we don’t use government power to decide which religious beliefs are legitimate and which aren’t," the Nebraska Republican said Friday in a statement. "This bigoted nonsense would target a lot of sincere Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Leaders from both political parties have a duty to flatly condemn this attack on very basic American freedoms."

During a Thursday CNN candidate forum on gay issues, O'Rourke endorsed yanking the tax-exempt status from all religious colleges, charities, and churches that did not support gay marriage.


Harris Announces Two Grants for Eastern Shore Entrepreneurs

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) announced the award of two federal grants for entrepreneurs on the Eastern Shore: A $40,530 grant to the Eastern Shore Entrepreneurship Center in Easton and a $96,039 grant to Maryland Capital Enterprises, Inc. in Salisbury. The grants were awarded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of Rural Development. The funds will be dispersed through the Rural Microentrepreneur Assistance Program.

According to the USDA, the grants “will be used to provide business based training and technical assistance to rural microenterprises and microentrepreneurs in rural Maryland (Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico and Worcester counties). Technical assistance efforts are intended to promote small business growth and development in rural communities, leading to job creation and jobs saved.”

Rep. Andy Harris made the following statement:

“Small business and innovative entrepreneurs are crucial to our local economy and job growth on the Eastern Shore. As a member of the Agriculture Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations, I applaud the investment of these federal funds in entrepreneurs on the Eastern Shore. I will continue to work to protect and sustain our way of life in rural Maryland.”

Farmers in Idaho rallied to harvest a neighbor's potatoes as a deep freeze threatened to ruin them

With meteorologists predicting a hard freeze in southeast Idaho for Wednesday, farmers rushed to harvest all their potatoes before the surprise cold snap ruined them.

One farmer in Hamer, Idaho, about 30 miles north of Idaho Falls, wasn't able to take in all his crop in time.

So other farmers sent their workers, and "a ton of members of the community" came to help save his crop, Jason Larson told CNN.


Nearly 20 years after USS Cole attack, commanding officer and Gold Star mother frustrated with slow pace of justice

“ Before 9/11, there was 10/12.”

That's a mantra repeated by former USS Cole shipmates and family members in recalling the 17 sailors killed in the Oct. 12, 2000, bombing of the Navy destroyer in Yemen’s Aden harbor. The waterborne suicide attack by al Qaeda proved a morbid warning of the terror group's potency, less than a year before it hijacked planes and killed nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001, all on American soil.

Many issues related to the attack remain unresolved. The suspected mastermind, Saudi-born Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, 54, still hasn’t been tried for his role. Former crew members and victims' families are frustrated with the slow pace of justice in military commissions at Guantanamo Bay, where he has been held for over a decade.

The USS Cole's commanding officer the day of the attack, Kirk Lippold, 60, said it was “absolutely inexcusable” that the legal process had been allowed to be dragged out by defense attorneys.


“It’s Very, Very Good” – Chinese Top Trade Representative Tells Reporters: Trump Trade Deal Brings “Peace and Prosperity to the World”

On Friday afternoon the US and China announced they had reached a partial trade agreement. Stocks rallied on the news. The Dow was up 319 points at closing.

The president tweeted out the news earlier today.
Good things are happening at China Trade Talk Meeting. Warmer feelings than in recent past, more like the Old Days. I will be meeting with the Vice Premier today. All would like to see something significant happen!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2019
China’s chief trade negotiator Liu He later met with President Trump and his economic staff in the White House for discussions.



Photo of a soccer player sharing her similarity with one-year-old fan goes viral.

Apparently, you only need one hand to steal a heart. It’s a trick that Carson Pickett and Joseph Tidd seem to have played on each other, as well as on the countless people who have seen the memorable photos of them “arm bumping” each other at a soccer game in early June (Pickett is a pro soccer player for the Orlando Pride). The photo shows Carson, who was born with only half of a left arm, with an ear-to-ear grin as she greets 22-month-old Joseph, who was born with the same limb difference.

Although the photo at the soccer game is the one that has gotten the most attention—going viral on social media and also getting coverage on television news shows—it’s not the first time the two have come together and greeted each other in this fashion. They met for the first time after an earlier game on April 15, when a Fox 35 Orlando television reporter they knew arranged for the meeting to happen, according to the Washington Post.

Local Alpacas Farm To Hold Open House

BERLIN — Ocean Breeze Alpacas will have an open house on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. when the farm will be open free to the public for tours, demonstrations and activities. The farm is located 10304 Caleb Road in Berlin. The rain date will be Oct. 20.

Co-owners Nancy and Susan Taylor invite the public to come meet their alpacas and visit their Breezy Barn farm store of local alpaca yarn, roving and fibers. Alpaca goods and one-of-a-kind hand knits are also available for sale in the shop, just in time for the holiday gift-giving season.

“We hope everyone can join us on Saturday when we have invited various fiber artists demonstrating knitting, spinning, rug-hooking, and weaving,” said Susan Taylor. “There will be games, activities and our popular hayride for the kids and the young at heart.”


Pollster: Anxiety Over This 2020 Candidate Could Force PA Democrats To Vote For Trump

So, is the Democrats’ impeachment push popular with their base? Probably. This is something that they’ve de facto campaigned on for nearly three years. The impeachment of Donald Trump because he won the 2016 election was not a question of ‘if’ but ‘when.’ But this is mostly an issue that appears to get the professional elite in the Democratic Party excited. There are other issues for the 2020 cycle. In Pennsylvania, a must-win state for both sides, Democrats in the western part of the state are not happy with the Democrats’ 2020 agenda. They’re not thrilled their party is anti-fracking and pushing an agenda that will gut their health insurance. For Medicare for All to work, all private plans have to go, which includes those for union workers. David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report noted this recently, adding there is a chasm where Democrats can fall if they come off as too insane. These folks are also not happy with the prospect of Lie-a-Watha Liz winning the nomination either:

The problem is that they already have jumped off the cliff into the left-wing abyss. They’re for gutting private health insurance, they want a wealth tax, forgive student loan debt, enact the Green New Deal, hate cops, want to make abortion permissible up until the moment of birth, and give illegal aliens health care benefits—while promoting an open borders agenda. This isn’t just conservatives saying the Democrats have gone off the deep-end, former Obama officials have as well. David Axelrod, a former top adviser to Obama, lamented about the appalling approval numbers at the core of the 2020 Democratic agenda, noting that it’s important to listen to voters and what they want. That’s funny—Democrats hate voters and think their small, elite brain trust is what should be entrusted to make and enforce all of their authoritarian and ruinously expensive policy positions. On the flip side, Trump has to ensure that he can be competitive in the collar counties around Philadelphia, specifically Buck County, where he split with Hillary 48-48, but that result was enough for him to clinch the state, as he ran up the score in the ‘T’ counties between Philly and Pittsburgh.

5 Things The Mainstream Media Was Afraid To Tell You

Man drives five hours for surgery insurance won't cover

James Schlieper drove five hours from Central Texas to a surgery center across state lines for his hernia surgery — a procedure his catastrophic insurance doesn't pay for. Hospitals back home quoted him cash prices of over $30,000.

Then he went online and found the Surgery Center of Oklahoma's cash price: just over $3,000.

"It's like [the] a la carte menu at a Mexican restaurant," Schlieper said, laughing. "It's great. What do you want? That's how much it costs."


Left-wing Rioters Attack Trump Supporters Leaving Minneapolis Rally

Left-wing rioters attacked supporters of President Donald Trump leaving a rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Thursday evening — assaulting them in groups, setting fire to pro-Trump hats, and attacking the police.

Riot police stood by as members of Antifa were seen dragging steel fences away from the Target Center. They were filmed by Elijah Schaffer, a correspondent for The Blaze, a conservative news site — who was maced as he filmed.

Local Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter Liz Sawyer noted there were several hundred rioters, and that some were singling out Trump supporters and surrounding them in groups before attacking them. Some also attacked police.

The Target Center had attempted to charge the Trump campaign hundreds of thousands of dollars for additional security. The rally itself — with a capacity crowd inside and tens of thousands outside — passed without serious incident, but local police seemed unprepared for the violence by anti-Trump rioters after the event was over.

California adopts broadest U.S. rules for seizing guns

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a law that will make the state the first to allow employers, coworkers and teachers to seek gun violence restraining orders against other people. The bill was signed Friday by Newsom but had been vetoed twice by former governor Jerry Brown; both are Democrats.

It goes beyond a measure Brown signed allowing only law enforcement officers and immediate family members to ask judges to temporarily take away peoples' guns when they are deemed a danger to themselves or others.

Seventeen states and the District of Columbia have laws similar to California's current law but the new law taking effect on January 1 will be broader.


UMES announces new testing admissions' policy

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore announced today it is implementing a “test-optional” admissions policy for applicants whose high school transcripts show their grade-point average to be 3.4 or higher.

Applicants with strong academic credentials seeking to enroll at UMES will no longer rely on the submission of college test scores for admissions purposes.

The new policy will be used to screen applicants for the spring 2020 semester and beyond.

“As a historically black, doctoral research institution,” UMES President Heidi M. Anderson said, “the university has long embraced its role as a place that creates greater opportunity and access to a quality college education. This new policy supports not only our students, but reinforces our founding mission.”

Trump blasts 'bulls--- impeachment' at Louisiana rally, says Nancy Pelosi 'hates the United States'

President Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., during a Friday night rally in Louisiana, saying "Nancy Pelosi hates the United States of America."

In his second rally in as many nights -- following Thursday's rally in Minneapolis -- Trump also ridiculed the ongoing impeachment inquiry spearheaded by House Democrats, whom he called "scammers and con artists,"

"They know they can't win an election," Trump told a packed arena in Lake Charles, La., "so they're pursuing an illegal, unconstitutional bulls--- impeachment."


US and China reach 'phase one' trade deal, staving off more tariffs for now

President Trump said Friday that his administration had reached a "substantial deal" on trade with Beijing but that the specific details remain to be worked out.

The deal involves China making $40 billion to $50 billion in additional purchases of U.S. farm goods while the White House stops a tariff hike previously scheduled to go into effect next week. Agreements were made on intellectual property and currency issues as well, Trump said.

“We've agreed in principle to just about everything. Now we are getting it papered," Trump told reporters. He said the U.S. and Beijing would meet again in five or six weeks in Chile, by which time they expected the details to be ironed out.

Atlanta defends rainbow crosswalks as symbols of pride; officials say it impacts safety

ATLANTA —Atlanta's dazzling rainbow crosswalks won't be repainted any time soon, the mayor said.

The symbol of solidarity with the city's LGBTQ residents will remain, the office of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced, days before Atlanta's Pride festivities begin.

"Much like glitter, the crosswalk is here to stay indefinitely," spokesman Michael Smith said in a statement to CNN.

The announcement comes the same week another city denied the Federal Highway Administration's request to remove its rainbow crosswalks.

Ames, Iowa, painted its first crosswalks with the colors of the gay, gender non-binary and transgender pride flags in September. That month, the FHWA sent a letter that claimed the new art interfered with the safety of road users.
