President Trump Blasts Sweden for A$AP Rocky Charges, Social Media Perplexed Over His Priorities –

July 26th, 2019

President Donald Trump‘s continued support for A$AP Rocky, who’s currently incarcerated in Sweden following a fight, has proven shocking to many in recent weeks and he’s showing no signs of stopping. Some believe it’s all an act, however.

Rep. Carson told TMZ he’s been working to have A$AP Rocky freed from prison in Sweden, and claimed Trump had no involvement in that effort. He called his recent social media salvo a show to attract the support of the black community, and said he didn’t feel Sweden would be moved by Trump’s social media temper tantrums.

“I love Kim Kardashian and Kanye [West] and I appreciate what they’re doing on prison reform. On Criminal justice reform. I just think the president is using a word called triangulation. He’s making oath to the African American community talking about this grave injustice but at the same time he thinks it’s ok to diss The Squad,” Rep. Carson told TMZ.

Social media users were equally confused by Trump’s focus on A$AP Rocky.

He continued, “I don’t think the Swedish government cares about what he has to say.”

Carson added that while Trump may not actually care what happens to A$AP Rocky in Swedish prison, he’s dedicated to seeing him freed.

“I’m disappointed right now. I’m upset. We’re gonna stay tuned and see how the trial goes,” Rep. Carson said.

He continued, “They reaffirmed that Sweden is a country that’d dedicated to the rule of law. They don’t have a bail system.”

Trump, 73, launched into a Twitter tirade against Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven on Thursday, claiming he “let our African American Community down.” The president maintained A$AP Rocky’s innocence, alleging that he was “followed and harassed” in the violent incident that led to his imprisonment.

The former reality star went on to demand the New York native’s “FREEDOM,” touting the many ways the United States supports Sweden. Trump alleged that the country had its own problems to focus on.

U.S. politicians aren’t the only ones that think Trump is full of it. He was blasted by former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt, according to The Hill. In a set of tweets, Bildt said that in Sweden the rule of law applies to everyone, even celebrities.

“Political interference in the process is distinctly off limits! Clear?” He tweeted.


Bildt went on to say that if Trump “tries to obstruct justice in his own country he will be in deep trouble with the very principles of the US constitution.”

So far, Trump hasn’t responded.


Float plane crashes north of Port Hardy – Vancouver Sun

July 26th, 2019

The Cessna 208 crashed on Addenbroke Island off the B.C. central coast, about 100 km north of Port Hardy

Four people have died in a float plane crash on an uninhabited island off the northern end of Vancouver Island.

Lt. Chelsea Dubeau with the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria said the centre received word Friday that a Cessna 208 float plane had crashed on Addenbroke Island, about 100 kilometres north of Port Hardy.

The centre said the chartered plane crashed at about 11 a.m. Dubeau said it’s unclear where the plane was heading, or whether it was a commercial flight. The centre said late Friday that the plane had nine people aboard. Two survivors were airlifted to hospital in Vancouver, while three others were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

“Unfortunately we can confirm at this time that there are four individuals that are deceased,” Dubeau said.

The plane was operated by Seair Seaplanes, said Chris Krepski of the Transportation Safety Board. The plane is capable of carrying 10 to 14 passengers.

Krepski said the board was gathering information before deciding what its next steps would be.

Seair Seaplanes, which offers daily charter flights and scenic tour flights in British Columbia, said in a statement that the “serious accident” involved one of its Caravan float planes.

“Our thoughts are with those involved in the crash and their loved ones [who] are devastated by this fatal accident. We are currently working with first responders and authorities and have immediately suspended all flights,” the statement said.

The company said it would provide updates as details become available and its focus is on working with first responders to provide whatever support is needed.

Dubeau said the B.C. Ferries vessel Northern Sea Wolf was on scene quickly because it was nearby, and a Canadian Coast Guard Cormorant helicopter and Buffalo fixed-wing plane were also dispatched to lend assistance, and a crew with the Cormorant is on scene.

Dubeau said no one lives on Addenbroke, although there is a lighthouse on the island.

The island is on the route the ferry takes from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert.

B.C. Emergency Health Services said paramedic ground crews and two air ambulance critical care teams are staged in Port Hardy for survivors of the crash. It’s co-ordinating with the coast guard for the care of five patients, spokeswoman Shannon Miller said.

Critical care teams are made up of paramedics with the highest level of specialized training, with a focus on acute medical emergencies and air medical responses, she added.

“We won’t have an update on patients’ conditions until they arrive in Port Hardy,” she said.

“Weather, we’re told, was raining with low visibility,” Dubeau said earlier.

Boris Johnson backs high-speed Leeds to Manchester rail route – BBC News

July 26th, 2019

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will pledge to fund a new high-speed rail route between Leeds and Manchester.

In a speech in Manchester later, Mr Johnson will give his backing to the trans-Pennine transport link to “turbo-charge the economy”.

It is claimed the plans would cut journey times on the 36-mile (58km) route from 50 minutes to less than 30.

The full details of the route are expected to be published in the autumn following the review into HS2.

It is thought the new route will be part of Mr Johnson’s wider commitment to deliver a high-speed railway link across the north of England, which would cost about £39bn.

The previous government supported the project in principle but had not committed to investing in it.

But Labour cast doubt on Mr Johnson’s pledge – saying he had failed to deliver on infrastructure as mayor of London.

HS2 and HS3

  • HS2 would connect London, the Midlands and up to Wigan, Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds using trains capable of travelling at 250mph.
  • The north-to-south rail line is budgeted to cost £56bn.
  • The first segment – between London and Birmingham – is due to open in 2026, with the second – to Leeds and Manchester – expected to be completed by 2033.
  • HS3 – a high-speed east-west rail link between Manchester and Leeds – was first announced by the government in 2014 but no firm commitments have been made since.
  • In June 2019, the Department for Transport would not confirm when a decision on HS3 would be made, but estimated it could cost up to £39bn.

The idea of a high-speed, east-west rail connection in northern England was first announced in 2014 by the then chancellor George Osborne as part of his Northern Powerhouse strategy.

He claimed it would allow cities from Liverpool to Hull “to take on the world”, but since then little progress has been made despite swathes of reports, announcements and pledges.

In 2016 a report for the National Infrastructure Commission found the scheme needed “kick-starting” and concluded a concrete plan should be in place by 2017.

In 2017, Mr Osborne claimed Theresa May’s government had made a “systematic attempt” to “eradicate all mention of the initiative”.

The Northern Powerhouse Minister Jake Berry replied that the scheme “would happen”, but failed to provide any details of when.

In 2018, a £70bn master plan announced by Transport for the North – set up to co-ordinate transport across the north of England – included HS3 in its plans for a new rail network, called Northern Powerhouse Rail. It was met with a mixed response.

Image caption Mr Johnson is only proposing to fund the route between Manchester and Leeds

Labour’s shadow transport secretary Andy McDonald said the project had been “announced time and time again by the Conservatives”.

“With Boris Johnson’s staggering failure to build a bridge across the Thames and an estuary airport I’m not confident he’ll be able to deliver better train services between Leeds and Manchester,” he added.

“What we really need is Labour’s Crossrail for the North, from Liverpool to Hull and up to the North East to unleash the economic potential of the region.

“Just upgrading the rail between Leeds and Manchester – the same distance as the Central line on the London Underground – won’t achieve that.”

Theresa May’s government had said that it supported the idea of a new, fast rail route across the Pennines in principle – but it hadn’t found the money to make it a reality.

Boris Johnson’s speech goes one step further with a firm pledge to fund the Leeds to Manchester line.

The new railway would have a significant impact on journey times. Leeds to Manchester could be cut from around 50 minutes to less than 30 minutes.

Local authorities in the north have campaigned hard for extra cash for the north’s railways following years of investment in big transport projects in London such as Crossrail – and the rebuilding of several of the capital’s rail stations.

Attention will now turn to the precise route and if the HS2 experience is anything to go by that’s when the difficulties of building a railway become apparent.

Mr Johnson will use the speech to state he is committed to “rebalance power, growth and productivity across the UK”.

He will also pledge to “improve the unglamorous local services which people use every day”, such as buses.

This has been welcomed by Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, who said improving the current transport system “is more important than a railway line that might be built in 15 or 20 years”.

Image caption The HS3 rail link would reduce journey times from Leeds to Manchester to 30 minutes

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “If you asked me to prioritise, I would say prioritise this next decade but I don’t think we should be asked to prioritise because London has never been asked to do that.

“We should have new rail infrastructure alongside support for our transport system now.”

A survey by the Northern Powerhouse Partnership (NPP) found companies believed the upgraded network would boost productivity and investment.

NPP director Henri Murison said: “This is a seminal moment for the north – the entire Northern Powerhouse concept is all about connecting the cities and towns of the north to boost productivity.”

Leeds City Council leader Judith Blake said: “Northern Powerhouse Rail is key to our vision for a modern, reliable transport network that delivers faster journey times, additional capacity and greater reliability and I hope the Government will now work with us to accelerate delivery of this project.”

Men wanted in connection with northern B.C. murders spotted in Alberta last weekend: RCMP – Edmonton Journal

July 26th, 2019

Police are trying to find Bryer Schmegelsky, left, and Kam McLeod. The Port Alberni teens are charged with second degree murder of a Vancouver man and are suspects in a double homicide in northern B.C. BC RCMP

The subjects of a nationwide manhunt — now focused around Gillam, Man. — touched ground in Alberta on their way east, RCMP said Friday.
In a news release, RCMP said that the two men wanted in connection with three northern B.C. murders were spotted in the Cold Lake area on Sunday after a resident unknowingly helped them free a silver 2011 Toyota RAV 4, which was struck on a trail behind his residence.
The resident had a “short, unremarkable interaction” with Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and Kam McLeod, 19, on Sunday morning around 9:30 a.m. outside his north-end home, said RCMP, but he did not identify the pair as the wanted men until he checked social media later Sunday evening.
McLeod and Schmegelsky have both been charged with second-degree murder in the death of 64-year-old Leonard Dyck. They are also suspects in the double murder of Australian Lucas Fowler and American Chynna Deese.
A vehicle matching the description of the vehicle the wanted pair were last seen in was found burned out and discarded in northern Manitoba on Tuesday.
The manhunt is now focused in the area of Gillam, Man., where RCMP say civilians may have “inadvertently” helped the pair and are asking the public to come forward with any further information about their whereabouts.

MAP: Northern B.C. murder suspects may have covered 1,400 kilometres over 2 days – Global News

July 26th, 2019

Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod remain the subject of a manhunt that has taken police to Manitoba, where the teens from Port Alberni, B.C. were last seen.

The suspects in the murders of Chynna Deese and Lucas Fowler — and who have been charged in the murder of Leonard Dyck — were last spotted twice in Gillam, Man. on Monday.

The RAV4 they were driving was found burnt and discarded about 55 kilometres away from the community.

There have been no sightings since.

Deese and Fowler were found dead on July 15, in an incident that police believe may have taken place the day prior.

Schmegelsky and McLeod were next spotted at the Cassiar Mountain Jade Store north of Dease Lake, B.C. on July 18.

They were next sighted later that day, travelling south from the Super A general store in Dease Lake at approximately 3:15 p.m.

Then, on July 19, the suspects’ red truck was found on fire about 50 kilometres south of Dease Lake.

Police found the dead body of Leonard Dyck about two kilometres away from where the truck was discovered.

Charges in Dyck’s murder were announced on June 24. There are, as yet, no charges in Fowler or Deese’s deaths.

Schmegelsky and McLeod were next sighted in Cold Lake, Alta. on July 21, a distance of around 2,000 kilometres from Dease Lake.

That trip requires as much as 22 hours of driving.

The pair were seen in Meadow Lake, Sask. the same day.

Their final sightings took place in Gillam, Man., one day later.

That community is approximately 1,300 kilometres from Meadow Lake, making for a drive that can take as long as 14 hours.

That’s also about 1,400 kilometres from Cold Lake.

Police said Friday that they will spend the next 72 hours going door to door in Gillam and the Fox Lake Cree Nation, hoping to generate “new tips and information.”

RCMP are exploring the possibility that the suspects may have left Gillam.

B.C. murder suspects spotted in Cold Lake, Alta., last Sunday – CTV News

July 26th, 2019

The two suspects wanted in connection with three murders in British Columbia were seen in Cold Lake, Alta., last Sunday.

On Friday, RCMP said a resident in the town’s north end saw a Toyota RAV4 stuck on a trail behind their home. There were two young men outside the SUV.

The homeowner went outside and helped them get the vehicle unstuck.

“They continued on their way after a short, unremarkable interaction,” the police release read.

Later that night, the homeowner saw the two people they helped on social media and identified them as Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky.

Earlier Friday, RCMP released surveillance footage of McLeod and Schmegelsky at a Meadow Lake, Sask., co-op store the same day they were seen in Alberta.

McLeod and Schmegelsky were last seen in Gillam, Man., on Monday, but RCMP now believe someone may have inadvertently help them escape.

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey Is Engaged – E! NEWS

Cynthia Baileyis engaged to Mike Hill!

The TV personality got down on one knee to ask for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s hand in marriage on Friday. And, clearly, she said yes! 

It all went down at the grand opening of Cynthia’s new place of business, The Bailey WineCellar. The mother-of-one was surrounded by her daughter, Noelle Robinson, as well as Mike’s two daughters, Kayla and Ashlee, when he popped the question with a massive diamond. Of course, the three teens played a part in the proposal too. According to People, Noelle, Kayla and Ashlee all held a cut-out of a sentence that read: “Can we be a family?”

Her guests then cheered as the reality star slipped on the priceless engagement ring for the first time. 

While the time and place of the proposal surely came as a surprise, the engagement itself isn’t. Since the pair started dating last year, it’s become increasingly clear that they are meant for each other. 

Cynthia herself wrote on Instagram, “did not see u coming @itsmikehill. one year down & a lifetime to go.”

And Mike cannot agree more. “What’s the first love song YOU fell in love with? For me it was Michael Jackson‘s ‘The Lady In My Life’. Even though I didn’t have a lady at the time it touched me the 1st time I heard it & it always meant something to me,” he gushed. “Now that I have @CynthiaBailey10 in my life, I know why the words meant so much.”

Bailey and Hill’s happy news comes three years after Cynthia separated from ex-husband Peter Thomas. Together, she and Peter shared six years of marriage, but decided to part ways after a “difficult” time in their relationship. 

Congratulations to Cynthia and Mike!
