Tom Brady's Wife: 'You're Lucky You Married a Witch'
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady credits his wife, Gisele Bundchen, with their latest Super Bowl win. Specifically, he credits the former Victoria's Secret angel's witchcraft.
"She said you're lucky you married a witch—I'm just a good witch," Brady said of his wife's spirituality.
Brady told reporters that he believes the Patriots' win over the Rams was derived from the work the couple does spiritually.
"I have these little special stones, healing stones, protection stones and she has me wear a necklace, take these drops she makes, say all these mantras," Brady said.
The famed quarterback also said Bundchen "always makes a little altar for me at the game because she just wills it so much," complete with pictures of his children.
Brady told the crowd that Bundchen foretold how Patriots' seasons would go down.
"So it was early January this year, and I said, 'Babe, I'm asking ... like, do we have a chance?'
"And she said, 'Yeah, but you're going to have to do a lot of work and you're really going to have to listen to me,'" Brady said.
"So man, I listen to her. And then right after the game she said, 'See? I did a lot of work. You do your work, I do mine.'"

According to the Wall Street Journal, Bundchen builds her beliefs around astrology, Buddhism, Taoism and the Mexican spiritual guru Don Miguel Ruiz.
"I'm an optimistic person," Bundchen said. "I believe that what we give energy to is what grows. If you focus on positivity and this higher, lighter vibration of love and good things, they will eventually come."

A Brief History of The Health Support Uses of Silver
For thousands of years silver has been used as a healing and anti-bacterial agent by civilizations throughout the world. Its medical, preservative and restorative powers can be traced as far back as the ancient Greek and Roman Empires. Long before the development of modern pharmaceuticals, silver was employed as a germicide and antibiotic.
Consider these interesting facts:
The Greeks used silver vessels to keep water and other liquids fresh. The writings of Herodotus, the Greek philosopher and historian, date the use of silver to before the birth of Christ.
The Roman Empire stored wine in silver urns to prevent spoilage.
The use of silver is mentioned in ancient Egyptian writings.
In the Middle Ages, silverware protected the wealthy from the full brunt of the plague.
Before the advent of modern germicides and antibiotics, it was known that disease-causing pathogens could not survive in the presence of silver. Consequently, silver was used in dishware, drinking vessels and eating utensils.
In particular, the wealthy stored and ate their food from silver vessels to keep bacteria from growing.
The Chinese emperors and their courts ate with silver chopsticks.
The Druids have left evidence of their use of silver.
Settlers in the Australian outback suspend silverware in their water tanks to retard spoilage.
Pioneers trekking across the American West found that if they placed silver or copper coins in their casks of drinking water, it kept the water safe from bacteria, algae, etc.
All along the frontier, silver dollars were put in milk to keep it fresh. Some of us remember our grandparents doing the same.
Silver leaf was used to combat infection in wounds sustained by troops during World War I.
Prior to the introduction of antibiotics, Colloidal Silver was used widely in hospitals and has been known as a bactericide for at least 1200 years...
Why Justin Bieber Is Reportedly Seeking Treatment for Depression
Justin Bieber is seeking treatment for depression, multiple sources have confirmed to People. A source close to Bieber said that the Biebs has been "down and tired. He has been struggling a bit." His issues have nothing to do with his new marriage either, the source clarified.
“It has nothing to do with Hailey—he is very happy being married to her," the source said. "It’s just something else that he struggles with mentally. He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon.”
A second source told People that his childhood fame took a toll on his mental health over the years. “He started off as a typical sweet, Canadian teen," the source started. "He was such a great kid, honestly super sweet and very polite and nice to everyone around him. Having this huge amount of fame completely changed him. He had access to anything and everything and was surrounded by people who just said ‘Yes.’ ”
“He’s emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame—being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face," the source continued. "It all sets him off and he often feels like everyone is out to get him."

Michelle Obama’s Surprise Grammys Appearance Stuns Audience
Those expecting a ho-hum Grammys night were surely jolted awake on Sunday when, just minutes into the show, Michelle Obama walked onto the stage hand-in-hand with Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez. They were joined by the host Alicia Keys.
In the surprise appearance, which doubled as a moment of female solidarity the Grammys needed, Obama spoke to the crowd as it erupted in applause and cheers.
“All right, all right, we got a show to do,” Obama, who wore a loose-fitting shimmering silver jumpsuit, said playfully when the audience wouldn’t settle down.
“From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side to the ‘who run the world’ songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story, and I know that’s true for everybody here,” she continued, referring to the Chicago neighborhood where she was raised.
“Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys. It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in. Music shows us that all of it matters — every story within every voice, every note within every song. Is that right ladies?” she said as many in the crowd remained standing.

"I will never let you down," Trump pledges at National Prayer Breakfast
President Trump, speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. Thursday, assured his audience that his administration will protect religious liberties.
"I will never let you down," the president told his audience — which included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "I can say that. Never."
The president has relied on religious conservatives, particularly evangelical Christians, for much of his base. His speech came after he devoted some of his State of the Union address to the issue of late-term abortion, a key issue for many conservative Christians — especially after bills in New York and Virginia aiming to ease late-term abortion restrictions. The president reiterated his commitment to the pro-life movement Thursday.
"All children born and unborn are made in the holy image of God," Mr. Trump told the prayer breakfast.
Mr. Trump also brought up religious persecution abroad, human trafficking and other issues he says his administration is committed to addressing.

Trump's State of the Union address wasn't about politics, it was about doing what's right for the country
President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night once again revealed a clear contrast between radical, left-wing Democrats intent on rejecting compromise and a president offering sensible proposals to benefit the American people.
State of the Union
This is our future, our fate, and our choice to make. I am asking you to choose greatness.
President Trump had a simple, powerful message for his second State of the Union Address: “Choosing Greatness.” When our leaders in Washington put citizens first and their careers second—when they choose a spirit of compromise over the politics of retribution—there is no limit to what America can achieve.
5 Takeaways From Trump's 2019 State of the Union Address
President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union address on Tuesday night, originally scheduled for a week ago, but delayed due to the partial shutdown of the federal government.
The president focused on several key issues, including immigration and the border, rising healthcare costs, and abortion.
Ahead of Tuesday night’s address, Trump said the theme of his speech would be creating “unity” between both parties in Congress.

Pope publicly acknowledges clergy sexual abuse of nuns
Pope Francis on Tuesday publicly acknowledged the scandal of priests and bishops sexually abusing nuns and vowed to do more to fight the problem, the latest sign that there is no end in sight to the Catholic Church’s abuse crisis — and that it now has a reckoning from the #MeToo movement.
Francis admitted to the problem for the first time in public during a news conference while returning to Rome from the United Arab Emirates. The acknowledgment comes just two weeks before he hosts an unprecedented gathering of bishops to craft a global response to the scandal of priestly predators who target children and the superiors who covered up the crimes.
The magazine, “Women Church World,” noted that the scandal involves a corollary: nuns being forced to abort the priests’ children or bear children that the priests refuse to recognize.
The Associated Press and other media have reported on cases of abused nuns in India , Africa, Europe and South America — evidence that the problem is by no means limited to a certain geographic area.

‘El Chapo’ Guzman associate claims kingpin paid $100M bribe to former Mexican President
A former close personal aide to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman testified Tuesday that the drug kingpin once paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
The stunning testimony came from Alex Cifuentes, a Colombian trafficker who once served as Guzman’s secretary and close personal aide.
Under cross examination by defense lawyer Lichtman, who referred to transcripts of de-briefings Cifuentes had with US authorities, Cifuentes alleged that a $100 million bribe was paid to Peña Nieto, who was President from 2012 to 2018.
During opening statements in November, Lichtman claimed that Peña Nieto and former Presidents of Mexico “received hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes from his organization.”
Cifuentes told authorities the money was given to Peña Nieto in October 2012, when he was president-elect.
“Yes, that very thing is what Joaquin told me,” Cifuentes responded, adding that a bribe would ensure the kingpin could “continue working.”
Guzman, 61, has pleaded not guilty. If convicted of international drug trafficking, conspiring to murder rivals, gun charges and money laundering, he faces a sentence of life in prison.

Witnesses testified about Guzman getting a police escort after a prison escape and politicians who asked for help shipping 100 tons of cocaine in an oil tanker.

Sarah Sanders: God 'wanted Donald Trump to become president'
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted President Donald Trump to win the 2016 election, the Christian Broadcasting Network reported on Wednesday.
"I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that's why he's there," Sanders told CBN's David Brody and Jennifer Wishon, according to a transcript of the interview provided by CBN.
"I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about," Sanders added.
When asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling Trump's proposed wall along the US southern border "immoral," Sanders told CBN, "The idea that protecting the people of your country, which is the fundamental duty of being president of the United States, would in some way be immoral is a ridiculous charge."

President Trump Lashes Out at Intelligence Chiefs After They Publicly Contradict Him
Democratic lawmakers serving on Congress’ intelligence committees accused Trump of undermining U.S. intelligence professionals.
At a hearing Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said intelligence information does not support the idea that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will eliminate his nuclear weapons.
Trump insisted Wednesday on Twitter that the U.S. relationship with North Korea “is the best it has ever been.” He pointed to a halt in nuclear and missile tests by North Korea, the return of some U.S. service members’ remains and the release of detained Americans as signs of progress.
Kim committed to denuclearization after meeting with Trump last year. A second Trump-Kim meeting is expected in February.
“The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran,” Trump tweeted. “They are wrong!”
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House intelligence committee, credited the agencies with providing “rigorous and realistic analyses” of threats facing the nation. “It’s deeply dangerous that the White House isn’t listening,” Schiff tweeted.
Mark Warner of Virginia, the senior Democrat on the Senate’s intelligence panel, also expressed displeasure with Trump’s comments.
“The President has a dangerous habit of undermining the intelligence community to fit his alternate reality,” Warner tweeted. “People risk their lives for the intelligence he just tosses aside on Twitter.”

Trump signs measure to temporarily reopen government, setting up new battle over border wall
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump signed a measure late Friday to reopen the federal government for three weeks, ending the longest shutdown in U.S. history even though the bipartisan legislation included no additional money for his proposed border wall.
The bill, which breezed through Congress in a matter of hours by unanimous voice votes, capped a 35-day partial shutdown that exposed the new power dynamic at play in a divided Washington and set off negotiations to avoid a repeat outcome when the money runs out again next month.
“We have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government," Trump said during a hastily arranged address in the White House Rose Garden.
Trump's decision to back the deal came amid mounting pressure from members of Congress to end the impasse and in the face of public opinion polls showing that most Americans blamed him and Republicans for the shutdown. Pressure to reopen the government intensified as airports along the East Coast reported delays because of a lack of air traffic controllers.
Trump signed the bill at the White House privately, without reporters present – a contrast with House Democratic leaders, who scheduled a photo opportunity on Capitol Hill moments after the measured cleared that chamber. Trump took to Twitter to defend his decision to back the deal, which was quickly criticized by some conservatives in his party.
"This was in no way a concession," Trump insisted in a tweet late Friday. "It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!"
"The wall should not be controversial," Trump said.
But Trump warned that if he doesn't get "a fai..
World War 3 RISK: Why is Russia and China BACKING Venezuela's Maduro? Russia vs USA
VENEZUELA has been gripped by a presidential crisis following disputed results from the 2018 election. But why are Russia and China backing socialist leader Nicolas Maduro?
By GEORGINA LAUD
PUBLISHED: 13:09, Thu, Jan 24, 2019 | UPDATED: 13:27, Thu, Jan 24, 2019
Incumbent President Nicolas Maduro was proclaimed president following the 2018 election, however, the results of this vote were widely disputed. Earlier this year, the results were declared invalid by the National Assembly of Venezuela and opposition candidate Juan Guaido given the title of acting president. The fallout from this crisis has seen widespread protests, and support for both sides around the world.
A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said today (Thursday) that Britain supports Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido as head of the democratically elected National Assembly.
The spokesman added that a 2018 presidential poll was neither free nor fair.
Guaido proclaimed himself interim president on Wednesday, winning backing from Washington and parts of Latin America resulting in socialist Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela's leader since 2013, to break relations with the United States.
Mrs May's spokesman said: “The 2018 presidential election in Venezuela was neither free nor fair, so the regime's basis for power is deeply flawed.
“We fully support the democratically elected National Assembly with Juan Guaido as its president.
"In relation to the U.S, we think it is totally unacceptable for Venezuela to cut off diplomatic ties.
“The solution to this crisis lies in working to find a peaceful and diplomatic solution, not in expulsions."

Trump can show up to deliver the State of the Union, but Pelosi could shut off the lights and keep out cameras
In the latest twist in the ongoing saga over the State of the Union, President Trump on Wednesday wrote that he planned to ignore House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's disinvitation and proceed with delivering his speech on Jan. 29 "on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!”
So can Trump simply show up to the House of Representatives to deliver his speech? And if he does, can Pelosi just have security kick him out?
The answer is multi-layered.
Under the rules, declaring a formal joint session of Congress requires the agreement of both the House and Senate. Without Pelosi's consent, in other words, there can't be a joint session.
At the same time, however, as described by McClatchy, no rules would prevent Trump from entering the House chamber, or speaking on the House floor, whenever he wants. So he's perfectly within his powers to show up and deliver his speech.
That said, Pelosi, D-Calif., has other tools at her disposal to thwart Trump. She could shut off the lights, turn off the microphones, and also make sure that no cameras are allowed because the House won't be in session.
But, while there is some precedent for these sorts of games, it would take things to a new level if something like this were to take place involving the president arriving on Capitol Hill to deliver the State of the Union.
Trump and his team have now had time to discuss various responses to Pelosi's letter, including the possibility of delivering the speech from the White House, the Senate, or another location. He may have reached the conclusion that simply showing up is a win-win. In this way of thinking, if Pelosi relents, it makes him look like a stronger leader who stared down Pelosi and won...
Pope Francis unveils new ‘Click to Pray’ app
Are you there, Pope Francis? It’s me …
The Holy Father launched an app called “Click to Pray” on Sunday that’ll allow the world’s 1.3 billion Roman Catholics to join him in prayer.
The pontiff has a profile on the Android and iOS app that shows Catholics around the globe what he’s currently praying for. Users can then click an icon to indicate that they’ve prayed with him.
Thousands of faithful watched Sunday as Francis — who once said he was a “disaster” with technology — showed the app on a tablet at his weekly address in St. Peter’s Square.
“Did I do it?” Francis asked an aide after swiping on the tablet.
Still, Francis said the internet is a way “to stay in touch with others, to share values and projects and to express the desire to form a community.”
He specifically called for young people to download the app and pray with him — especially during World Youth Day 2019 in Panama, which begins Tuesday.
The pope then told crowds he had “two pains in his heart” that he was currently praying for: victims of the car bomb blast at a police academy in Colombia and the 170 migrants from Libya and Morocco who died in the Mediterranean.
The app is available in six languages and has an accompanying website, clicktopray.org

Waiting for a Shutdown to End in Disaster
Aides on Capitol Hill fear that a dramatic government failure may be the only thing to force President Trump and the Democrats back to the table.
As the longest government shutdown in American history lurches toward its fifth week, a grim but growing consensus has begun to emerge on Capitol Hill: There may be no way out of this mess until something disastrous happens.
This is, of course, not a sentiment lawmakers are eager to share on the record. But in interviews this week with congressional staffers on both sides of the aisle (whom I granted anonymity in exchange for candor), I heard the same morbid idea expressed again and again.
The basic theory—explained to me between weary sighs and defeated shrugs—goes like this: Washington is at an impasse that looks increasingly unbreakable. President Donald Trump is dug in; so is Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Democrats have public opinion on their side, but the president is focused on his conservative base. For a deal to shake loose in this environment, it may require a failure of government so dramatic, so shocking, as to galvanize public outrage and force the two parties back to the negotiating table.
In these interviews, I heard an array of macabre hypotheticals—from airplane crashes to food-safety scares, TSA strikes to terrorist incidents. But the one theme that ran through every conversation was a sense that the current political dynamics won’t change until voters get a lot angrier.

Government shutdown may upend State of the Union speech
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked President Donald Trump to postpone his Jan. 29 State of the Union speech. She cited concerns about whether the hobbled government can provide adequate security, but Republicans cast her move as a ploy to deny Trump the stage.
In a letter to Trump, Pelosi said that with both the Secret Service and the Homeland Security Department entangled in the shutdown, the president should speak to Congress another time or he should deliver the address in writing. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen denied anyone’s safety is compromised, saying both agencies “are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union.”
Trump did not immediately respond to the request and the White House, thrown off guard by the move, had yet to offer any official response hours later. But GOP allies accused Pelosi of playing politics, with Republican Rep. Steve Scalise tweeting that Democrats are “only interested in obstructing @realDonaldTrump, not governing.”
Pelosi, who issued the customary invitation to Trump weeks ago, hit the president in a vulnerable place, as he delights in taking his message to the public and has been preparing for the address for weeks.
Pelosi left unclear what would happen if Trump insisted on coming despite the welcome mat being pulled away. It takes a joint resolution of the House and Congress to extend the official invitation and set the stage.
“We’ll have to have a security evaluation, but that would mean diverting resources,” she told reporters when asked how she would respond if Trump still intended to come. “I don’t know how that could happen.”
Pelosi’s office said Congress is already familiar with the percentage of Secret Service and Homeland Security employees who have been furloughed and working without pay.

Something very strange is happening to Earth's magnetic North Pole and no one knows why
according to the science journal Nature, something strange is going on deep down below
It’s causing the magnetic North Pole to ‘skitter’ away from Canada, towards Siberia.
“The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move,” Nature reports.
On January 30 (delayed due to the US Government shutdown), the World Magnetic Model — which governs modern navigation systems — is due to undergo an urgent update.
This model is a vital component of systems ranging from geopositioning systems used to navigate ships through to smartphone trackers and maps.
The current model was expected to be valid until 2020. But the magnetic pole began to shift so quickly, it was realized in 2018 that the model had to be fixed — now.
“They realized that it was so inaccurate that it was about to exceed the acceptable (safe) limit for navigational errors,” Nature reports
Every year, geophysicists from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the British Geological Survey do a check on how the Earth’s magnetic field is varying.
But the movement of the north magnetic pole has been the object of study since 1831. Initially, it was tracked moving into the Arctic Ocean at a rate of about 15km each year. But, since the mid 1990s, it has picked up speed. It’s now shifting at a rate of about 55km a year.

FedEx worker goes viral for stop she didn't have to make: 'I pray every day for the Lord to use me'
A FedEx employee in South Carolina with a big heart went viral after she posted a video about being prompted by God to help another person on her route in York County.
Amanda Riggan, a full-time driver with FedEx and founder of "Hungry Heroes," a non-profit that feeds first responders and veterans, was making her regular rounds last Thursday when she met a woman who tearfully shared with her that her husband had cancer. After the two made some small talk, Riggan left.
"I drove off, my heart's pounding. I do probably 20 more stops, and I have to go back," Riggan shared in a video on Facebook after pulling to the side of the road. "I stopped what I was doing. I went back to that neighborhood. I rang her doorbell...and when she came down the stairs she had tears in eyes. When she saw it was me, she smiled."
Riggan prayed with her as she broke down in tears.
"She came out on the front porch and squeezed me so tight, this lady I've never met," Riggan said, "and I prayed for her and her family -- for her husband."
Riggan used the heartfelt moment as a chance to share about following God.
"I pray every day for the Lord to use me," Riggan said through tears. "When you feel those tugs on your heartstrings, and you feel like you need to do this, stop and do it."

Cher Rips Chuck and Nancy over Shutdown: ‘You’re Putting Lives in Danger’
Left-wing pop icon Cher went after Democratic Congressional leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, accusing them of “putting lives in danger” by failing to end the ongoing government shutdown.
In a now-deleted tweet, Cher warned that Democrats are vulnerable to the political fall out over the shutdown, and that their current refusal to negotiate makes them look like “obstructionist swamp scum.”
“DEMS,STOP SHUTDOWN B4 TRUMP DOES,” she wrote. “HELL B HERO & MAKE U LOOK LIKE OBSTRUCTIONIST SWAMP SCUM‼️ “HE HAS NO SCRUPLES.HES PLAYING IT RIIGHT,& UR PLAYING RIGHT IN2 HIS HANDS.HE’LL EAT UR LUNCH & STEAL UR LUNCH ‼️YOU’LL B FKD 6 WAYS 2 SUNDAY.DONT DIE ON THIS HILL.HE STOPS AT NOTHING.”
Cher later said, “FOR trump THIS IS POLITICAL..BUT REAL PPL ARE REALLY SUFFERING ‼️WHERE WAS THE FKNG CRISIS 1 MONTH AGO,1YR AGO⁉️WHERE HAS IT BEEN FOR THE LAST 2 YRS. HAVING SAID THATNANCY YOU ARE A HERO LET HIM HAVE HIS FKNG MONEY‼️PPL WILL STARVELOSE THEIR HOMES, B UNABLE 2 C DRS.”
Cher’s comments come a day after Pelosi and Schumer delivered a rebuttal to President Trump’s address to the nation on the importance of stopping illegal immigration by constructing a border wall, with the pair accusing Trump of “manufacturing a crisis” for political ends.
“President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis and must reopen the government,” Pelosi said.
Democrat’s refusal to agree a deal with Trump on border security is the reason behind the government shutdown, meaning around 800,000 federal workers are not getting paid, while many essential government departments are not receiving the necessary funding to carry out their activities.
Cher, meanwhile, continues to provide regular Twitter commentary on current political even..
Jeff Bezos and Wife MacKenzie Will Divorce After 25 Years of Marriage
Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing after a relationship that started at a New York hedge fund and is ending a little more than a year after he became the world’s richest person.
“After a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” according to a tweet Wednesday that both of them signed.
The couple met in New York at D.E. Shaw. Jeff was the first person to interview MacKenzie for a role at the hedge fund and the pair ended up having offices next to each other, according to a 2013 interview with Vogue. They married in 1993 and a year later drove across the country to Seattle, where Jeff founded Amazon. They have four children.
MacKenzie, an author, played a significant role at the company in the early years and “was there when he wrote the business plan,” she wrote in a disparaging 2013 review of a Bezos biography. “I worked with him and many others represented in the converted garage, the basement warehouse closet, the barbecue-scented offices, the Christmas-rush distribution centers, and the door-desk filled conference rooms in the early years of Amazon’s history.”
Bezos, 54, is worth $137 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, a ranking of the world’s 500 wealthiest people. He owns about 16 percent of the retailer as well as the Washington Post and space exploration company Blue Origin.
“Jeff remains focused on and engaged in all aspects of Amazon,” Drew Herdener, a spokesman for the retailer, said in an emailed statement in response to a question about how the divorce might affect the company and its investors.

We are back. It’s felt like an eternity since Becca awarded Garrett with her final rose, but the wait is over. The Bachelor kicked off Monday night with our old friend Colton Underwood taking centerstage as this season’s star.
When we last left Colton, he was having his heart broken by Becca, finishing fourth on the last season of The Bachelorette. (And, yes, I know he was on Bachelor in Paradise, but we don’t consider that canon around these parts.) Now he’s back and has 30 women vying for his heart, and we’ll be here to recap the action every week.
For whatever reason, ABC decided that the premiere needed to be a live event that lasted THREE HOURS when it should have lasted no more than an hour.
Right off the bat, there are a lot of allusions to his virginity, but Colton takes it all in stride. This would have been an awkward season otherwise.
Several women observed that Colton was nervous during the introductions, but he seemed to shake the nerves when it was time to mingle with the women. He even kissed three women, Hannah G., Caelynn and Katie, on the first night.
So who’s gonna win?
Our prediction for the winner of the season, which will be updated every week. After this week, we’re going with…
After winning the all-important First Impression Rose, Hannah G. is the clear leader in the clubhouse after one episode. Colton told her that she reminded him of home, and then repeated that same line to Chris Harrison during the live portion of the episode.
Solomon Turns from the Lord
1Ki 11:1 Now King Solomon loved many foreign women. Besides Pharaoh's daughter, he married women from Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon, and from among the Hittites.
1Ki 11:2 The LORD had clearly instructed the people of Israel, 'You must not marry them, because they will turn your hearts to their gods.' Yet Solomon insisted on loving them anyway.
1Ki 11:3 He had 700 wives of royal birth and 300 concubines. And in fact, they did turn his heart ..
Emergency to Build the Wall?
The president has teased the idea of circumventing Congress and ordering the military to intervene
While fielding questions from reporters in the Rose Garden last week, President Trump floated the idea of circumventing Congress and using the military to build his long-promise border wall. “We can call a national emergency because of the security,” he said. “I haven’t done it. I may do it. But we can call a national emergency and build it very quickly.”
If anyone doubted the president was serious, several outlets have since reported that the White House has been discussing the prospect. Negotiations to resolve the issue and re-open the government have not been going well, with Democrats steadfastly refusing to include border-wall funding in a spending bill and Trump refusing to accept a bill that does not include over $5 billion of taxpayer money allocated toward its construction, which could ultimately cost as much as $70 billion. Something has to give. “We can only stay like this for so long,” a White House official told CNN on Saturday. Bringing the military into the picture may seem ridiculous and implausible, but then again so did shutting down the government.
On Monday morning, Trump tweeted something Rep. Adam Smith (D-VA) said Sunday on This Week with George Stephanopolous in an attempt to legitimize a potential national emergency declaration.
Donald J. Trump
Congressman Adam Smith, the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, just stated, “Yes, there is a provision in law that says a president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times.” No doubt, but let’s get our deal done in Congress!

In December, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon explained to New York Magazine that declaring a national emergency and enlisting the military to b..
'IT WAS SO PEACEFUL' Brit skier, 29, saw ‘the afterlife’ after she ‘died for 20 MINUTES in avalanche before coming back to life’
Rhianna Shaw made the chilling decision to stop breathing, after an avalanche in St Anton, Austria, fully encased her in snow
She had been skiing with friends at the St Anton ski resort in Austria, when she collided into another skier.
As both of her ski's flew off her feet and she tumbled down the slope, she felt what she thought was a "wash of snow" shower her. But that 'snow shower' turned out to be a massive avalanche.
Rhianna, from Chichester, West Sussex, told Sun Online: "Our crash was so powerful, it created a massive fracture in the mountain and forcing a ledge to break off, setting off an avalanche which pushed me 200m down.
"But suddenly I stopped moving and all I could feel was this weight. Heavy snow just stopping me from moving, seeing and thinking. I could feel everything, but within seconds I couldn't breathe. I was just focusing on breathing.
"I tried to scream, but it became apparent that no one could hear me. So I decided to stop breathing. And everything became so peaceful."
Rhianna initially thought she was having a vivid dream, but says this was different. She had died, but her brain was still ticking.
She said: "I started walking along a pathway in this peaceful, pale forest. It had big tall evergreens on either side.
"Everything was as bright as day. Weirdly it was so calming, and it looked like there was some kind of snow on the ground but not like snow as we know it."
Rhianna believes she was conscious for at least five minutes before she decided to 'let herself die'.
Experts have suggested that we remain 'trapped' inside our bodies even after our hearts stop beating.
Dr Sam Parina and his team from New York University Langone School of Medicine launched a study into consciousness after death.

Pelosi was asked about her mother’s approach to meetings, ahead of a highly anticipated briefing with President Trump and other top congressional leaders scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in the White House Situation Room.
