Donald Trump delays State of the Union Address after Nancy Pelosi bars him from House chamber

Donald Trump delays State of the Union Address after Nancy Pelosi bars him from House chamber Donald Trump said in a late night Tweet on Wednesday that he would delay a State of the Union address until the government shutdown was over. The move came in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's move to bar him from delivering the annual presidential address in its traditional location, the chamber of the House of Representatives. Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat Speaker of the House, announced the US president was not welcome for the planned major speech on Jan 29. She said he would not be welcome until the US government was reopened. The Republican president responded to the Democrat speaker on Twitter, writing: "This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over. I am not looking for an alternative venue for the SOTU Address because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber," the president said in the tweet. "I look forward to giving a “great” State of the Union Address in the near future!" As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over. I am not looking for an....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 24, 2019 ....alternative venue for the SOTU Address because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber. I look forward to giving a “great” State of the Union Address in the near future!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 24, 2019 Ms Pelosi responded to the President shortly after, writing that she hoped he would end the shutdown on Thursday when the Senate vote on a house-passed package to end the shutdown.  Mr. President, I hope by saying “near future” you mean you will support the House-passed package to #EndTheShutdown that the Senate will vote on tomorrow. Please accept this proposal so we can re-open government, repay our federal workers and then negotiate our differences. https://t.co/57KMATZZTO— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) January 24, 2019 The government has been partially shut down for over a month due to a row between Mr Trump and Democrats over funding for his proposed border wall. The latest escalation put relations between America's legislative and executive branches in uncharted territory. Mr Trump said Mrs Pelosi had "cancelled" the State of the Union and the decision was a "great blotch" on the country, and a "negative part of history". He added that it was a "disgrace". For the State of the Union both houses of the legislature cram into the House chamber for an annual update from the president. The event is a convention, rather than having written down rules. The US Constitution states only that the president "shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union". It does not specify the location, or preclude the president from giving his update in writing. The president cannot speak in front of a joint session of Congress without explicit permission from both chambers. A resolution needs to be approved by both chambers specifying the date and time. But Mrs Pelosi said the Democrat-controlled House would not authorise such a resolution at this time. The traditional invitation to the president had gone out before the shutdown began. Nancy Pelosi is in a standoff with the president Credit: AP Last week, Mrs Pelosi suggested the high-profile event be suspended due to security concerns stemming from the shutdown. However, on Wednesday, Mr Trump wrote to the speaker formally accepting the original invitation to speak on Jan 29. Mr Trump said he had consulted with the Secret Service and they would have "no problem" keeping him safe. The president wrote to Mrs Pelosi: "Therefore, I will be honouring your invitation, and fulfilling my Constitutional duty to the people and Congress regarding the State of our Union. "It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!" In a quick written response Mrs Pelosi said the House would not authorise the resolution allowing Mr Trump into the chamber. She wrote: "I look forward to welcoming you to the House on a mutually agreeable date for this address when government has been opened." Immediately after that, Mr Trump said: "I'm not surprised. It's really a shame what's happening with the Democrats. They've become radicalised. "The State of the Union has been cancelled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn't want to hear the truth. "She’s afraid of the super-left Democrats, the radical Democrats. What’s going on in that party is shocking. She doesn’t want to know the truth. I think that’s a great blotch on the great country we all love." The impasse opened up the possibility that Mr Trump could deliver the State of the Union from another location, perhaps the Oval Office, or the chamber of the Republican-controlled Senate. Or, he could choose to do it in front of supporters at a rally well away from Washington. In recent days White House officials have been working on a backup plan to give the speech somewhere else. Kellyanne Conway, Mr Trump's counselor, said it would be "remarkably petty" for Mrs Pelosi to deny Mr Trump entry to the House. In what is becoming a deeply personal standoff Mr Trump recently revoked Mrs Pelosi's use of a military aircraft, thereby canceling her planned visit to meet troops in Afghanistan.

Boeing's flying car lifts off in race to revolutionize urban travel

Boeing's flying car lifts off in race to revolutionize urban travel Boeing Co said on Wednesday its flying car prototype hovered briefly in the air during an inaugural test flight, a small but significant step as the world's largest planemaker bids to revolutionize urban transportation and parcel delivery services. Boeing is competing with arch-rival Airbus SE and numerous other firms to introduce small self-flying vehicles capable of vertical takeoff and landing. Boeing's 30-foot-long (9 meter) aircraft - part helicopter, part drone and part fixed-wing plane - lifted a few feet off the ground and made a soft landing after less than a minute of being airborne on Tuesday at an airport in Manassas, Virginia, Boeing said.


A pot marketplace is offering federal employees free weed during the shutdown

A pot marketplace is offering federal employees free weed during the shutdown Our political system may be crumbling, but at least federal workers who can't pay for medical marijuana during the government shutdown can get it for free! Called the "Craigslist of weed," BudTrader is a massive pot-trading marketplace that allows users to buy and sell grow supplies, bud, and paraphernalia. As we continue to endure the longest government shutdown in history, the company wants to help federal employees who have gone without pay for 33 days.  SEE ALSO: Understanding the confusing world of CBD and THC ratios "I don't think federal employees are getting enough love and support," BudTrader CEO Brad McLaughlin said in a statement to the Hill. "In these tough times, we want to extend the offer of a donation of medical cannabis to any federal worker affected by the shutdown."  Pledging to give the "maximum legal allowable amount of cannabis" to federal workers, BudTrader will also ensure that all weed donations are "confidential and compliant with the California Cannabis adult use laws and regulations." In a Facebook post on Monday, BudTrader assured cannabis users that they wouldn't have to worry about anyone finding out.  "God Bless all Federal Employees, God Bless the Cannabis Community, and God Bless the United States of America," the company said in the post.  This gesture is one of many from companies and celebrities who are offering donations and aid to struggling federal employees. ## WATCH: The perfect fire-starter for your camping needs

Nurse arrested over Arizona care home patient pregnancy

Nurse arrested over Arizona care home patient pregnancy A  nurse has been charged with rape after a severely disabled woman gave birth in care home in Arizona. The 29-year-old victim stunned her caregivers and family when she gave birth to a baby boy late last month, sparking an investigation. Nathan Sutherland, a 36-year-old licensed practical nurse, was arrested Wednesday on one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said. Mr Sutherland was responsible for providing care to the victim during the time the assault occurred. He was arrested after his DNA was matched to that of the baby, Phoenix Police department said. The 29-year-old victim, who police said "was not in a position to give consent", has been in the care of the Hacienda Health Care facility in Phoenix, Arizona since the age of three.    The victim's family described her as having "significant intellectual disabilities as a result of seizures very early in her childhood". Police collected DNA samples from male staff at the clinic Credit: CBS/Universal News And Sport (Europe) While she does not speak, she has some mobility in her limbs, head and neck. She also responds to sound and can make facial gestures, the family said in a statement.   The family's lawyer, John Micheaels, said the relatives were  "outraged, traumatised and in shock" at the assault. The child is now in the care of the patient's family. Court documents state that the woman is "not alert" and requires a "maximum level of care", according to the Arizona Republic. Staff at the facility said they had no idea she was pregnant and the case has triggered reviews by state agencies and highlighted safety concerns for patients who are severely disabled or incapacitated.  The CEO of the nursing facility resigned following the scandal and earlier this week the clinic announced that one of the victim's doctors had resigned and another has been suspended. Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams announces the arrest of Nathan Sutherland Credit: AP Police are still investigating whether Mr Sutherland, who has worked at the facility since 2011, has assaulted any other patients and are encouraging anyone with information to come forward. Tommy Thompson, a spokesman for Phoenix Police, said the baby boy was "doing good". "We can't always choose how we come into this life, but what we can choose to do as a community is love this child, and that's what we have the opportunity to do," he said. The force said the case had become "the highest priority of our police department".   In a press conference yesterday, Ms Williams said she had not encountered a similar case during her 30-year-career in law enforcement.  "We owed this arrest to the victim. We owed this arrest to the newest member of our community - that innocent baby," the police chief added.

Emiliano Sala: Rescuers give up hope of finding missing footballer alive as experts claim the plane was downed by ice

Emiliano Sala: Rescuers give up hope of finding missing footballer alive as experts claim the plane was downed by ice Rescuers searching for the £15 million Cardiff City footballer, Emiliano Sala, admitted they had given up hope last night, amid fears that his single engine aircraft had crashed into the English channel after the propeller became blocked with ice. The Argentinian born striker sent a message to relatives shortly before taking off expressing fears over the state of the 25-year-old aircraft, It has also emerged that the pilot, Dave Ibbotson, 60, had to abort three attempted takeoffs and had joked with friends that he was a "bit rusty" in the days before the doomed flight. The Piper PA-46 Malibu left Nantes airport in north west France at around 7.15pm on Monday evening and was on route to Cardiff, where Sala was looking forward to joining up with his new teammates. Just after an hour into the flight the pilot asked air traffic control to reduce altitude from 5,000 ft to 2,300 feet. But a short time later the Guernsey coastguard was alerted after the aircraft disappeared from radar screens. David Ibbotson was thought to be the pilot of the aircraft Aviation experts suggested the privately chartered single-engine aircraft should not have been risking the flight in the icy conditions. Alastair Rosenschein, a former pilot, said: "It's already a fairly risky crossing to do in a single engine aircraft, especially in winter and definitely at night. There are icing problems too. It's a strange thing to do though to go and fly over water with one engine at night in winter because if your engine goes you're going in the water". Mystery continued to surround who the owner of the £100 per hour aircraft was, with Cardiff City insisting Sala had rejected their offer of a commercial flight, in favour of sorting out his own arrangements. A source at the club said they had launched an investigation to find out why their record breaking signing had gambled with his life on the "risky" Channel crossing. Neil Warnock took his players on a sombre first training session since the tragedy on Wednesday. Players and staff were described by one source as feeling "absolutely terrible" and "in the dark" about the circumstances of Sala's flight arrangements. Sala, who had been in prolific goal scoring form for Nantes in recent months, had been a dream signing for the club. Willie McKay, a well-known agent, was reported to have played a part in negotiating the club's record-breaking deal, but he told The Telegraph he had nothing to do with Sala's flight. He told The Telegraph: "I have had family members ringing me about this and it's just not true. None of it." Fans have left scarves and flowers at the Cardiff City stadium  The aircraft, which was built in 1984, is registered in the United States rather than Britain through a company based in Norfolk. The firm, Southern Aircraft Consultancy, charges owners around £500 pounds per year to register their aircraft with the Federal Aviation Authority, which means it is harder for the owners to be identified. Three years ago the Piper aircraft, which can carry six passengers, was delivered to the UK from Spain by a British pilot called, David Henderson. Emiliano Sala timeline He told the BBC at the time of the dangers of flying single engine aircraft over water. He said: "One of the problems we can encounter is that ice can build up on the surfaces of the aircraft, on the propeller and on the wings and if is gets too great then ultimately the aeroplane would stop flying and the only way in most of the aeroplanes we fly of getting rid of ice is to descend into warmer air and the ice will dissipate." Missing light aircraft over the English Channel Guernsey Police said rescue workers had launched three aircraft and one helicopter in a bid to find the missing plane. The aircraft scanned 280 sq miles of a target area after reviewing tidal and weather information, while coastal areas around Alderney and off-lying rocks and islands were also examined. But the search was called off on Wednesday evening with local police saying they would take a decision whether to resume the search on Thursday morning. However experienced rescuers warned there was "no hope" of finding the missing pair. A tearful Horacio Sala, father of the footballer, speaks during an interview outside his home in Progreso, Argentina Credit: AP Photo/Mauricio Garin John Fitzgerald, Chief officer of Channel Islands Air Search, said "even the most fit person" would only last a few hours in the water. Mr Fitzgerald said: "Sadly, I really don't think, personally, there is any hope. At this time of year the conditions out there are pretty horrendous if you are actually in the water." Sala had taken flown in the aircraft from Cardiff to Nantes on Saturday evening after finalising his move to the Premier League club. He had wanted to say goodbye to friends and former colleagues at the French club before embarking on his new career at Cardiff. But he had told friends he was worried about the return flight because the outbound trip had been "bumpy". Mr Ibbotson, a highly experienced pilot, from the village of Crowle near Scunthorpe, had joked with friends on social media that he was a "a bit rusty with the ILS", thought to be a reference to the aircraft's Instrument Landing System. Shortly before take off, Sala also sent a WhatsApp voice message to family saying he was "so scared". Media in Argentina reported he said: "I'm on a plane that looks like it's going to fall apart."

No. 3 House Democrat floats possible $5.7 billion in border funding

No. 3 House Democrat floats possible $5.7 billion in border funding The No. 3 Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday raised the possibility of approving $5.7 billion in funding to secure the U.S. border though various means but not by building a wall. Referring to Republican President Donald Trump's demand for $5.7 billion to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. House Majority Whip James Clyburn told reporters, "We see ourselves fulfilling that request" with a "smart wall." The consideration comes as U.S. lawmakers this week seek to forge a path out of the partial government shutdown as it entered its 33rd day on Wednesday. Trump has said the $5.7 billion would be for the wall in addition to other funds for border security, and that he will not back any measure that does not include his long-promised barrier.
