  1. This is getting to the point where it is a almost daily occurrence, and something that didn't happen as much when Obama was in office. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Officials-White-House-Fence-Jumper-Caught-by-Shoelaces-416903603.html
  2. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/18737245/mlb-union-agree-get-rid-traditional-intentional-walkwill-use-signal-dugout As part of its initiative to improve pace-of-game play, Major League Baseball has approved a change to the intentional walk rule, going from the traditional four-pitch walk to a dugout signal, team and union sources told ESPN's Howard Bryant. MLB has studied various ways to quicken games. ESPN's Jayson Stark reported earlier this month that MLB had made formal proposals to the players' union to usher in both raising the strike zone and scrapping the practice of lobbing four balls toward home plate to issue an intentional walk.
  3. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/elizabeth-warren-questions-devin-nunes-loyalty-over-trump-wiretap-flap/article/2618188?custom_click=rss Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren unleashed another Twitter rant on Wednesday, calling on Republicans to "get on the right side of history" and call for an independent commission to investigate President Trump's ties to Russia after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes revealed that he shared information with Trump that was withheld from his committee. "Who does House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes think he works for: the American people or [Trump]?" the Massachusetts senator asked.

  5. http://www.imdb.com/news/ni56439601/   The sequel, titled “It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story,” is being produced by Allen J. Schwalb of Star Partners and Bob Farnsworth of Hummingbird. The duo are aiming to get the movie into theaters for the 2015 holiday season.
  6. The trailer drops.
  7. Which guarantees I will hate it.
  8. There is zero chemistry with all the leads on this show, and it is very predictable. I am not sure what casting saw when this cast was put together. The viewership has been going down and down. I suspect this franchise will not come back ever again.
  9. https://www.yahoo.com/movies/ridley-scott-says-he-anticipates-making-six-more-alien-films-ill-be-ready-to-go-again-next-year-161138717.html Ridley Scott Says He Anticipates Making Six More 'Alien' Films: 'I'll Be Ready to Go Again Next Year' In a new interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, Scott confesses that he’s so intrigued by the “fantasy” of his sci-fi series — which he resurrected with 2012’s polarizing Prometheus — that he’s more than ready to keep it going for the foreseeable future: “If you really want a franchise, I can keep cranking it for another six,” Scott declares. “I’m not going to close it down again. No way.” Scott’s plan for SIX more installments would bring the franchise’s total number of prequels to eight, and the entire series’ run to 12 movies (not counting the two Alien vs. Predator spin-offs). If that sounds like an ambitious course of action for the 79-year-old director, know that he’s already getting set to start work on the next Alien chapter — which could begin production as early as next year.
  10. Good to hear GoBengals.
  11. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2616227/ Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' immediate resignation after it was reported he had two contacts with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign, joining several other prominent Democrats who also pushed for his departure late Wednesday. The Massachusetts Democrat launched a flurry of tweets late Wednesday night calling his role in leading the Justice Department's investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia "a farce," and pushing for him to step aside so a special prosecutor could conduct the probe. "It's a simple q: Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election?" she tweeted, referring to a question Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., asked during his confirmation hearings.
  12. I am not sold on the supporting cast, which for the most part is what worked really well in the prior seasons of this show. I think the lead is doing a good job though. I miss the "damn it Chloe" lines though.
  13. Looks like Brandon Phillips is heading to Atlanta: http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/18670405/cincinnati-reds-agree-trade-brandon-phillips-atlanta-braves
  14. Congress scared now?
  15. I didn't vote for him, I thought he was stupid on "The Apprentice" years ago before it the celebrity route and I refused to watch that version. There are people in the business world that could rip him to shreds in terms of how he ran his businesses. But yeah, every hour that goes by, he continues to get more and more comical.
  16. Anyone watch this last night? It is also on tonight.
  17. http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/sharknado-5-syfy-tara-reid-ian-ziering-1201976519/ “Sharknado 5” is happening, and Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are all set to reprise their roles. Syfy and studio The Asylum have given an official greenlight to the fifth installment of the “Sharknado” series. The original 2013 “Sharknado” introduced the concept of a shark-laden twister via one bearing down on Los Angeles. In “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” New York City was the target of the disaster, and in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” a mega-sharknado made its way down the East Coast from Washington, D.C. to Florida. In the most recent installment, the very-close-to-copyright-infringement-titled “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” the shark-infested storms went national. The film ended with the Eiffel Tower ripping away from Paris and crashing down on Niagara Falls, setting the stage for the fifth edition of America’s answer to the sprawling sagas of the ancient world.
  18. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2613690 President Trump threatened to withhold federal funds from the University of California-Berkeley if it doesn't allow Milo Yiannopoulos to speak on campus after the school canceled his speech due to violent protests Wednesday.
  19. https://amp.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/01/30-iconic-records-turning-30-years-old-in-2017.html To prove the year’s embarrassment of recorded riches, here are 30 of the best, most iconic releases from 1987 to revisit while they celebrate their 30th anniversaries this year. 1. U2, The Joshua Tree When U2 released The Joshua Tree in early 1987, Bono uncharacteristically stated that he was, “as pleased with the record as I can ever be pleased with a record.” Little did he and the rest of U2 know just how much it would please worldwide audiences, as well. Widely regarded as one of the best albums of all time, The Joshua Tree hit No. 1 on the charts in more than 20 different countries and has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide. The album’s three biggest singles—“With or Without You,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where the Streets Have No Name”—not only helped to define the band’s anthemic sound, but also the decade itself in many different ways, both within the U.S. and globally. The Joshua Tree transcended pop music in ways that allowed U2 to give voice and draw attention to a variety of important social and political issues, all while they toured the world as certified international rock stars.
  20. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/san-francisco-sues-trump-over-sanctuary-city-order/ar-AAmsXA2?OCID=ansmsnnews11http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2613047/ Tuesday's lawsuit alleges that the executive order violates the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states that powers not granted to the federal government should fall to the states. "In blatant disregard of the law, President of the United States seeks to coerce local authorities into abandoning what are known as 'Sanctuary City' laws and policies," said the lawsuit, filed in San Francisco federal court. Herrera told reporters at City Hall on Tuesday morning the city's sanctuary policy was borne out of a desire to allow and encourage undocumented immigrants to report crimes to police without fear of being deported. He said such policies make residents safer and cited research suggesting that counties and cities with sanctuary policies, of which he estimated there were 400 across the country, had fewer crimes per 10,000 residents than other jurisdictions.
  21. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/13/politics/house-obamacare-repeal-vote/index.html?adkey=bn The House of Representatives began the process of dismantling the Affordable Care Act on Friday, approving a budget resolution on a mostly party line vote. The vote was 227-198. The Senate passed the measure earlier this week. It allows Republicans on Capitol Hill to use a process known as "budget reconciliation" to roll back major parts of the health care law. Top Republican leaders are also saying they plan to move to replace Obamacare along the same track, but they are still struggling to come up with the details on how it will work.
  22. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/albright-im-ready-to-register-as-muslim/ar-AAmf8Wv?OCID=ansmsnnews11 Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday she is prepared to "register as Muslim" in solidarity amid reports that President Trump plans to take executive action affecting immigrants to the U.S. "I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as Muslim in #solidarity," Albright tweeted.

It's not immediately clear whether Morgan resigned or was asked to leave.
