>After seven years of drought, elated cattle farmers in the Australian state of Queensland welcomed the rainstorms heading their way as a blessing.
But now, after one of the most devastating deluges in state history, a billion-dollar industry could be left in tatters.
Authorities estimate that nearly 500,000 cattle -- worth about $213 million (AU$300 million) -- have been killed by flooding in Queensland's north since the rain began falling

what is the point of a Senate investigation? they don't have the same kind of fact-gathering powers that the Special Council do. so they sifted through a billion documents. I can go to my local library and do that. it doesn't mean they got their hands on the same stuff Mueller and the Southern Disctric of NY prosecutors have. the Feds have pulled truck-fulls of evidence from Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, and Michael Cohen. Did the Senate get that stuff?

WASHINGTON — After two years and 200 interviews, the Senate Intelligence Committee is approaching the end of its investigation into the 2016 election, having uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.

But investigators disagree along party lines when it comes to the implications of a pattern of contacts they have documented between Trump associates and Russians.

"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.

Democratic Senate investigators who spoke to NBC News on condition of anonymity did not dispute Burr's characterizations, but said they lacked context.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has been conducting the sole bipartisan inquiry, led by Burr and ranking Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia. The committee has sifted through some 300,000 documents, investigators tell NBC News, including classified intelligence shedding light on how the Russians communicated about their covert operation to interfere in the 2016 election.

Predictably, Burr's comments led Trump to tweet that he had been fully vindicated, which is not the case.

Democratic Senate investigators say it may take them six or seven months to write their final report once they are done with witness interviews.

The report, Democrats say, will not be good for Trump.

>Starbucks baristas rise up!
So how much money was pissed up the wall, on that inquiry?
>Please. This Russia trash had been cover for the DNC rigging the primary since inception and berners know that better than anyone because we watched it happen.
It they looked so dumb for rigging their primary AND propping up trump thinking it was the perfect ploy to influence the general election.
It all backfired on them and shot themselves in the foot.
All of this since then is the same tired tactic they used in he kavanaugh hearing.
I find it truly sad that more people don't see it for what it is-- a ploy to Garner public support via misinformation and propaganda
When you think about it, in a certain sense Democrats are the real russians
Nah, the Russians are the real Russians.

as Putin said russian state has no fucking point to invest into american politicians because those corrupt and lying fucks will backstab russians as soon they are in power. "It is no matter who is Washington americans will still demand from everyone that Russia is "the enemy"." on other hand is it sooo fucking hillarious when democrats 80% of election finances pool was spend by jews from around the world inclusive neonazi and racist jews from Ukraine and Israel. but that investigation part is hush hush under secret brand.

>This week the Governor of New York blamed budget shortfalls on the state of Florida.

>He said New Yorkers are fleeing to the sunshine state to save big time on taxes.

>It all goes back to the tax reform passed by Congress. The changes increased the incentive to move to the sunshine state dramatically.

>On Sunny Isles Beach, developer Edgardo Defortuna has a lot to smile about. His development Jade Signature, an ultra-luxury beachfront condominium building, is nearly sold out.
Finally, people are starting to take the Florida-pill and realize that it hasn't been Russia all along. Just look back at the hanging Chad's

during the Bush administration. And the fools blamed Russia back then too. Florida stole the election from Hillary, it was her turn and Russia did nothing wrong!!!
That's what happens when they get old.
If you are "losing citizens to Florida", it really says more about you than Florida
Cuomo's a machine politician, NY is a corrupt as fuck state and he's just spouting shit off so he doesn't get blamed for the new budget shortfall.

Nobody actually likes Cuomo, he previously made a deal to support a small group of Republicans to stop the Democrats from advancing anything he didn't want to see.

He's a fucker.
>Ol' King Cuomo loses his budget due to taxpayers abandoning ship after the feds stop subsidizing his retarded taxes
>Should he A.) Lower the fucking taxes you piece of shit the whole state isnt NYC
>Or should he B.) Publicly complain that Florida is stealing his middle class by nefariously lowering their taxes
Have to say, Im not surprised. Sometimes it feels like the stationary used by this state starts with "we are going to enact a new tax on ______ in order to raise funds to deal with _________"

Kamala Harris is for Slavery reparations for some people but not all people. Harris stated:

>Well look, I think that we have got to address that again, it’s back to the inequities. There, through–look, America has a history of 200 years of slavery. We had Jim Crow. We had legal segregation in America for a very long time. The Voting Rights Act was only strong for 50 years and then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme Court in the Shelby decision, to the point that 22 states immediately thereafter put in place laws that one court found were crafted with surgical precision to have black people not be able to vote.”

>So we’ve got to recognize, back to that earlier point, people aren’t starting out on the same base, in terms of their ability to succeed and so we have got to recognize that and give people a lift up. And, there are a number of ways to do it. Part of my initiative again around the ‘Lift Act’ is that same point–you lifting people up who are making less than a hundred thousand dollars a year. What I want to do about rent is the same thing. What we need to do around education and understanding disparities, what we need to do around HBCUs. But we have a history of racism in America.

Minneapolis (CNN) Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced her presidential bid at a snowy, freezing outdoor event on Sunday, vaulting the three-term senator from Minnesota into the field of Democrats angling to take on President Donald Trump in 2020.

Klobuchar, with snow piling up around her and blanketing the thousands of people before her, cast herself as the product of working-class roots who can win bipartisan support and help Democrats win back the Midwestern cities and towns that drifted toward President Donald Trump in 2016. Throughout her speech, she pledged to take on issues like money in politics, climate change and election reform, and leaned heavily into her Minnesota roots.

Klobuchar's team believes there is an opening in the Democratic primary for someone who is able to relate to voters in Iowa because of her local ties, but is also able to talk to Democrats eager to beat Trump in 2020 as well as win back Trump voters.

Klobuchar has a liberal voting record but is not considered as liberal as other candidates running for president or considering a 2020 run. Klobuchar does not support abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare-for-all bill -- instead pushing to lower the age when people are allowed to buy into the government health care program.

Some Democrats question whether her more moderate voting record -- she supported, for example, Trump's nominations of Wilbur Ross, Mike Pompeo and John Kelly and a host of other nominees -- is left enough to succeed in a Democratic primary. According to FiveThirtyEight's congressional vote tracker, Klobuchar voted with Trump's interests 31% of the time since he took office.

>that hebrew prayer at the start of the ralley
>- she's from the Midwest, is where zero Democrats live, as opposed to large Democratic states (Harris, Ocasio-Cortez)
totally wrong. Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois are democratic strongholds. Missouri typically goes for the republican candidate but it's actually close in most presidential elections. it wouldn't take much to swing it for the dems. also, the midwest is going to be an important section of the country to appeal to in a race against Trump, even if they aren't the most populous.
>all the booty blasted leftards ITT
k e k

In 2019 a Buzzfeed News investigation reported that Klobuchar's Congressional office was 'controlled by fear, anger, and shame'.[37] Interviews with former staffers indicated that Klobuchar would frequently abuse and humiliate her employees, with as much office time given over to managing her rage, as managing senatorial business.[38] Klobuchar was also listed as one of the 'worst bosses in Congress', with an annual staff turnover rate between 2011 and 2016 of 36%, the highest of any senator.[39]

Odds are, someone formerly on her staff will spill the beans about her being a bitch and this will derail her campaign (not that she has a chance in hell).

>Trump attacks 'ridiculous partisan investigations' in his State of the Union address


President Donald Trump on Tuesday denounced "ridiculous partisan" investigations during his State of the Union address, adding that there cannot be peace as long as there is "war and investigation."

"An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only things that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations," the president said.

Trump did not specify which investigations he was referring to, but he has often attacked special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russians and his 2016 campaign as a "witch hunt."

But even as Mueller's investigation shows signs of reaching its conclusion, Trump is facing an explosion of probes from newly empowered House Democrats and federal prosecutors examining other aspects of Trump's business and political activities.

Trump said if Americans are going to "defeat our adversaries abroad," the U.S. "must be united at home."

>He did? I thought he said that both sides got out of hand
That is what he said but complete retards prefer to believe otherwise or strangely twist his words to mean something they clearly were not intended to mean
>Trump is actually supported by Nazis.
So are several Democrats like illhar Omar.
Even David Duke supports Omar
Him: the guy who shot these people was a democrat
You: your argument fails completely., First he worked for Sanders
he's probably the kind of person that uses the ADL as a source for "white terrorism" aka a random hate crime against a fag.
People bring up Charlottesville because it was a neo nazi protest that happened because they were emboldened by Trump, and when the inevitable violence broke out, Trump refused to condemn then, they later did an insincere condemnation where they blamed. Because there's middle ground between nazis and not nazis. There isn't.

Less than one month until literal rivers of salt will flow
Sen. Chuck Grassley says he expects the Mueller report to be released 'within a month'
Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday that he expects special counsel Robert Mueller's final report to be released "within a month."
Mueller and his team of prosecutors have been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign collaborated with Moscow to tilt the race in Trump's favor since May of 2017.
In a January 28 press conference, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker became the first senior Justice Department official to offer a clue as to when the investigation would conclude.

"Right now the investigation is, I think, close to being completed," Whitaker told reporters. "And, I hope that we can get the report from director Mueller as soon as possible."

Well considering the House and now the senate have both come to the same conclusion. Its not far fetched that mueller won't come to that one as well.

I mean all the indictments are just tax fraud and lying.
I love the damage control from you shills. It's so cute.

The senate and house have given us a preview of whats to come.
I do actually hate america and I do support russia.

Is this guy for real or trolling?
>Republicans who are covering Trump jumping the gun.
Shocking no one.

>The Trump Tower meeting, in which top Trump campaign officials, along with Trump’s son and son-in-law, met with Russians “for the express purpose of obtaining ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton,” the Democratic aide said.
>The 100+ contacts that members of the Trump campaign and transition team had with Russia-linked officials.
>George Papadopoulos’ meeting with a professor in London in which he drunkenly said he knew that Russians had a trove of emails relating to Clinton that had yet to be released. Papadopoulos lied to the FBI about this meeting, and served jail time for his crime of lying to federal agents.
>The fact that indicted Trump confidant Roger Stone was in regular contact with WikiLeaks at the same time that he was communicating with Trump campaign staff.
>And Trump’s lies about his attempts to forge a deal for a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 campaign, a campaign that Russia interfered with to boost Trump’s chances of being elected.

That's doesn't mount to collusion according to Barr


Donald Trump’s favourite TV show, Fox & Friends, has a reputation for giving airtime to conspiracy theories that benefit the White House agenda. But host Pete Hegseth may now have managed to upset the famously germaphobic president – by revealing that he has not washed his hands in a decade.

The admission came as Hegseth discussed eating day-old pizza that had not been refrigerated. He did not see any issue with eating the pizza, he said, then added that he didn’t think he had washed his hands in 10 years.

“Really,” he said. “I don’t really wash my hands ever.”

Met with laughter, he explained: “I inoculate myself. Germs are not a real thing. I can’t see them, therefore they’re not real.”

On Twitter on Monday, Hegseth gave mixed messages. He claimed he had been joking and paraphrased the president in blaming the media for being so “self-righteous and angry”. He also said he supported drinking from hosepipes and riding bikes without a helmet.

I only do this with pizza that's been out a few hours
Semi-warm pizza is good.
eating finger foods and not washing your hands is a bit much
i hope they showers thoroughly every day
He was clearly joking but I guess humor like common sense are also no longer being used by liberals.
it's pretty clear he is.
I'm with you brother. I will get a super burrito from a taco truck, eat half and leave the other half unrefrigerated in my truck overnight. At lunch the next day I will eat the other half. Sometimes I leave it for up to 24 hours with meat, cheese, sour cream, guacamole all in room temperature or warmer storage. I also eat day old sushi and sushi that has been sitting in my car for 6+ hours.

Other people have bitch-ass immune systems and they will die during the famine because they wont be able to eat rotting meat collected from traps.

U.S. states increasingly require identification to vote – an ostensive attempt to deter fraud that prompts complaints of selective disenfranchisement. Using a difference-in-differences design on a 1.3-billion-observations panel, we find the laws have no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any group defined by race, gender, age, or party affiliation. These results hold through a large number of specifications and cannot be attributed to mobilization against the laws, measured by campaign contributions and self-reported political engagement. ID requirements have no effect on fraud either – actual or perceived. Overall, our results suggest that efforts to reform voter ID laws may not have much impact on elections.

I'm sure proper identification would also make it harder to employ illegals, why don't you follow Europe's example?
So are you saying that more black people voted when Barack Obama voted?

The proportion of voting blacks increased?

Suddenly voter ID laws weren't preventing them from voting?
They are free here nigga.


Shell last year rejected changes to its business demanded by Friends of the Earth. On Tuesday, it said that legal action would not produce the change wanted by activists.
"Tying up individual companies in a lengthy court process cannot replace policies that will encourage lower-carbon choices by all business and consumers," the company said in a statement.
Major oil producers including Shell have come under increasing pressure from consumers and shareholders over their role in climate change.
Shell agreed in December to establish short-term carbon emissions targets starting in 2020 following pressure from investors. It will also link executive pay to hitting the targets.
Rival energy producer BP (BP) pledged in February to align its business more closely with global climate goals and link the bonuses of 36,000 employees to greenhouse gas reduction targets.

>Also, the ice caps have decreased greatly in size. I dont know how you can watch a video like this and be 'whatever'

Oh no no no no


you do realize the video I posted is of the north pole, right?

Also, you just helped my point by posting more evidence that the earth is warming, thanks! Feel free to keep posting!

I love how you are posting plate tectonic theories though, like shifting the blame to volcanoes really achieves anything. Like there's any difference between energy from cars and volcanos (other than cars emitting 100X more). Also, 97% of scientists disagree with plate climatology as being the leading cause of the warming. So even if it's peer reviewed and correct, it is a meaningless study that is a side note at best to the scientific community. The vents warming that part of the ice shelf are tiny and scattered, and dormant- the only active volcano is thousands of miles away inland.

You cant just find some heat source somewhere and decide that that debunks co2. That's not how it works. Shit is fucking complicated and you are not in the realm of being able to make an argument here.
>He thinks the north pole melting will raise sea levels
>He thinks that a volcano melting ice in antarctica is "more proof of global warming"

The "global warming" crazies are a cult
Oh shut the fuck up your troll. Like you are a fucking scientist who did any fucking digging. I'm already proven correct. The onus is on you, retard.

Saudi Arabia and its coalition partner in Yemen, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) transferred US-made weapons to al-Qaeda-linked groups and a Salafi militia whose commander who once "served with" the Yemeni branch of ISIL, a CNN investigation has found.

Corroborating an earlier report by Al Jazeera, the CNN investigation said that the weapons had also made their way into the hands of Houthi rebels who are battling against the coalition for control of the country.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE entered Yemen's war in 2015 leading a military coalition to try and restore the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The two Gulf countries wanted to restore the Hadi government after a civil war broke out between Hadi's supporters and those loyal to the Houthis.

But according to CNN, the coalition was using US-manufactured weapons "as a form of currency to buy the loyalties of militias or tribes, bolster chosen armed actors, and influence the complex political landscape," local commanders and analysts said.

According to the Pentagon, the Gulf monarchies were breaking the terms of their arms deal with Washington.

A US defence official told CNN that there was an ongoing investigation into the issue.

Neuroengineers from Columbia University reportedly developed a way to use artificial intelligence and speech synthesizers to translate one’s thoughts into words.

The team’s paper, published Tuesday in Scientific Reports, outlines how they created a system that can read the brain activity of a listening patient, then reiterate what that patient heard with a clarity never before seen from such technology.

The breakthrough opens the path for speech neuroprosthetics, or implants, to have direct communications with the brain. Ideally, the technology will someday allow those who have lost their ability to speak to regain a voice. This can help patients who have suffered a stroke or are living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) communicate more easily with loved ones.

“If the wearer thinks ‘I need a glass of water,’ our system could take the brain signals generated by that thought, and turn them into synthesized, verbal speech,” Dr. Nima Mesgarani, the paper’s senior author and a principal investigator at Columbia University’s Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, explained in a statement.

“This would be a game changer,” he continued. “It would give anyone who has lost their ability to speak, whether through injury or disease, the renewed chance to connect to the world around them.”

Right now, the technology can only voice what one’s listened to, not what they wish to say. But further development can improve the system for this purpose.

>Removing the Lioning's 14-degree bow would convert the ship into "a training platform to fly warplanes for China's next generation aircraft carrier, the Type 002," an unnamed retired PLA Navy officer told the South China Morning Post Sunday.

>Yet the prospect of electromagnetic catapults on Liaoning remains "just a proposal," the anonymous officer said.
