The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A 50-year-old bridge spanning a ravine collapsed in Pittsburgh early Friday, requiring rescuers to rappel nearly 150 feet (46 meters) while others formed a human chain to reach occupants of a dangling bus.

The collapse came hours before President Joe Biden was to visit the city to press for his $1 trillion infrastructure bill, which has earmarked about $1.6 billion for Pennsylvania bridge maintenance.

There were minor injuries from the collapse but no fatalities, said authorities, who also flew drones to make sure no one was under any collapsed sections.

Police reported the span, on Forbes Avenue over Fern Hollow Creek in Frick Park, came down just before 7 a.m. Witnesses said the loud noise from the collapse was followed by a hissing sound and the smell of natural gas.

“The first sound was much more intense, and kind of a rumbling, which I guess was the structure, the deck hitting the ground,” said Ken Doyno, a resident who lives four houses away. “I mean, the whole house rattled at that point.”

A spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board, an independent government agency that investigates transportation problems, said Friday the agency was sending a team of about 10 people to investigate “not only what happened but why it happened.”


Contacted for comment, Moscow Mitch said "We don't need no stinkin' infrastructure bill if it makes Biden look like a success."

Quote:
A group of anti-Trump Republicans and conservatives made an ad calling out GOP leaders for their hypocrisy on Jan 6 — and aired it during several Fox News programs

I loved P.J.

He also wrote (and I'm paraphrasing here) successful governments
aren't successful by party ideology, but by the quality and motives
of people running that government.

Under pressure, Cawthorn changes his story about orgies, cocaine


Quote:
House Republican leaders have a near limitless capacity for tolerating misconduct. Trying to overturn a presidential election? Great. Embracing the deranged QAnon delusion? No problem. Speaking at a white nationalist event? They’ll let it slide.

Siding with Vladimir Putin as he wages a brutal and unprovoked war against a U.S. ally? Fine. Releasing a video depicting a GOP member killing a Democratic colleague? Let’s not overreact.

But as it turns out, there are still some lines House Republican leaders don’t want their members to cross. NBC News reported:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., met with first-term Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., on Wednesday about his claims of colleagues using drugs and inviting him to a “sexual get-together.” McCarthy said he told Cawthorn that “I lost my trust in him” because of the salacious claims and that there “could be” consequences as a result. He didn’t specify what those consequences could be.

If you’re just catching up on this story, Cawthorn appeared on a podcast last week and was asked whether the TV show “House of Cards” is realistic. The 26-year-old lawmaker said he couldn’t help but marvel at the “sexual perversion” of his older colleagues.

The North Carolina Republican, who has a reputation for peddling strange nonsense, proceeded to tell stories of his congressional colleagues inviting him to orgies and doing cocaine in his presence.

While many assumed this was just the latest in a series of Cawthorn's tall tales, his House GOP colleagues took the accusations seriously and expressed their outrage. McCarthy quickly arranged a private meeting with the freshman lawmaker, and the two met yesterday in the late morning.

The House minority leader soon after told Axios that Cawthorn acknowledged during their chat that his claims were “exaggerated.” Instead of seeing members of Congress doing “key bumps” of cocaine, the North Carolinian apparently told McCarthy he thought he saw “maybe a staffer in a parking garage from 100 yards away.”

According to a Politico report, Cawthorn told McCarthy “he doesn’t know what cocaine is.”

The minority leader appeared displeased. “I just told him he’s lost my trust,” McCarthy said of Cawthorn. “He’s going to have to earn it back.” The would-be House Speaker added, “It is just frustrating. There is no evidence behind his statements.”

Rep. Madison Cawthorn departs a briefing by senior Biden officials on Ukraine and Russia, in Washington on Feb. 3, 2022.

Comments like these may seem relatively restrained, but for McCarthy, who’s practically obsessed with promoting party unity and loath to lash out at members of his own conference in public, it was an unusual rebuke.

Part of what makes this controversy notable is what it tells the public about the party’s breaking points. As practically every fair-minded congressional observer will concede, House Republicans say outrageous things on a nearly daily basis, nearly all of which go ignored by GOP leaders.

But a known fabulist told a literally unbelievable story about cocaine and orgies, and the party wasn’t about to let that go.

That said, at least at this point, Cawthorn isn’t facing any consequences of great significance. He faced a public rebuke from McCarthy, and I have no doubt that was unpleasant, but for now the far-right freshman remains a member in good standing.

The party could announce that it’s no longer supporting Cawthorn’s re-election campaign. It could endorse a primary rival in his North Carolina district. It could withdraw all financial support for Cawthorn and his political operation. It could strip him of his committee assignments. It could kick him out of the House GOP conference. As of this morning, McCarthy and the House Republican leadership team haven’t taken any of these steps, and they’ve given no public indication that such punishments are on the table.

In other words, while the party isn’t pleased with Cawthorn, it’s still far angrier with Rep. Liz Cheney — whom the Republican National Committee has formally denounced, and whose primary rival now enjoys official GOP backing.

The Wyoming congresswoman didn’t make up any stories about her colleagues partaking in orgies and cocaine, but she did denounce Donald Trump and seek answers about the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. And for House Republicans, that’s far worse.

hmmm a GOP shop owner knows the harddrive was tampered with and by himself as custodian...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/mac-repair-shop-owner-reveals-multiple-attempts-to-insert-questionable-material-on-to-hunter-biden-s-laptop/ar-AAW7W2L?ocid=winp2oct&cvid=53ffac35c02e46f2ad746b5976fd743d


Mac Repair Shop Owner Reveals ‘Multiple’ Attempts to Insert ‘Questionable Material’ on to Hunter Biden’s Laptop


Quote:
A new twist has emerged in the Hunter Biden laptop saga as John Paul Mac Issac, the owner of the repair shop where Hunter Biden “forgot” his laptop, has admitted he knew of “multiple attempts” to insert “questionable material” on the hard drive.

The Trump-supporting repair shop owner has become an unlikely key figure in this saga that has come with allegations of disinformation and media/big tech censorship during the 2020 general election and for well over a year later.

Mac Isaac sat down with Real America’s Voice anchor Ed Henry to discuss the laptop, and a portion of the video was shared on Twitter.

Mac Isaac revealed that he saw the hard drive as a national security concern, which “caused [him] to do a deep dive into the laptop once it became [his] property.” Mac Isaac added “During that time, I saw a lot of photos. I did not see a lot of photos that are being reported to be seen.”

“I do know that there have been multiple attempts over the past year and a half to insert questionable material into the laptop as in not physically, but passing it off as misinformation or disinformation as coming from the laptop,” he continued. “And that is a major concern of mine because I have fought tooth and nail to protect the integrity of this drive.”

For a story that has received a great deal of media attention, there is still a lot that we do not know about the origins of this laptop and hard drive which was first revealed to the New York Post by former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Hunter Biden has left open the possibility that the laptop belongs to him but the simply didn’t recall, owing to his past struggles with drugs that led him to two stays at a recovery clinic in Newburyport, MA. A laptop of his was also reportedly seized by federal officials from Dr. Keith Ablow’s office, who treats addiction from his office in Newburyport.
