El Chapo Handed Over to the US, Just Before Donald Trump's Inauguration - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Joaquin " #El Chapo " Guzman, one of the world's most notorious drug traffickers of all time, has been extradited to the United States. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aside from moving enormous amounts of drugs in the US from Mexico, the infamous drug kingpin became widely known by staying a few steps ahead of officials. Then, when finally caught, Guzman managed to escape from prison several times, with the help of prison officials. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Late Thursday (Jan 19), Guzman arrived in New York after being extradited. Apparently, the timing of the extradition was strategic. According to reports, Mexican officials wanted to hand Guzman over to the United States, just before the inauguration of #DonaldTrump. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The drug lord will appear in federal court on Friday in Brooklyn, where he will stand trial at a later date, CNN reports. While Guzman is being transported to court, the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Guzman faces six separate indictments in the states, as well as charges in California, Texas, Illinois, Florida and New Hampshire. However, if convicted, he will not receive the death penalty.

Elijah Cummings Talks Inauguration: “If The Public Knew What Members of Congress Know….” They Would Boycott Too -blogged by @msjennyb - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The inauguration of Donald Trump is less than 24 hours away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In light of the swearing in of the President-elect, demonstrators have filled the streets to protest the reality star’s presidency. Since the election, celebrities and leaders of both political parties have denounced some of Trump’s views, divisive language and actions. Many have severed ties with all things Trump to further demonstrate their disapproval of the President-elect. Others have taken their objection a bit further with a vow to boycott the inauguration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings, if the general public had access to classified information about the President-elect, more people would join the rally to boycott the presidential inauguration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Cummings revealed that he would be at the inauguration, but over 50 Democratic politicians will not be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You’ve got to understand that members of Congress have a lot of information that the public does not have,” Cummings said, in regards to Russia’s involvement in the U.S. election. “And I can tell you over the last week or two, the classified briefings that I have been to, and if the pubic knew what members of Congress know…The information will come out later at some point. Then the public will fully understand.” Cuomo interjected, wondering why the public has not been made aware of the information Cummings is referring to, “If it’s that important that it’s going to make people not go to the inauguration….shouldn’t people know?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Apparently, Congress needed to do more to investigate Russia’s involvement in the election and FBI Director Jame Comey’s role in the WikiLeaks scandal for more information to be released to the public.....to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile) #readmore #clickthelink #logon

Reports Confirm that Tesla Driver Involved in Fatal Crash Had Seven Seconds to Take Action-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A driver killed in a #Tesla car crash last year while the Autopilot system was activated, is said to have had at least seven seconds to see the tractor trailer prior to the fatal impact. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration's investigation of the accident, this should have been enough time for the driver to take “some action,” said Bryan Thomas, communications director for NHTSA. However, Thomas admits that while the driver may have been able to see the tractor, it's unclear "whether that was enough time to avoid or mitigate the crash.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The NHTSA investigation report referred to the seven seconds as a “period of extended distraction,” and mentioned that similar crashes generally have a “much shorter time” available for both the driver and the system to sense and actively respond to a possible collision. The report says that distractions longer than seven seconds are "uncommon, but foreseeable.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is no word from the NHTSA about what could have been distracting the driver during those seven seconds. The driver of the tractor trailer however, claims that the driver was watching a #HarryPotter movie. The driver's last interaction with the car was setting it to cruise control at a speed of 74 mph less than two minutes before the fatal accident. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the NHTSA report: "An attentive driver has superior situational awareness in most of these types of events, particularly when coupled with the ability of an experienced driver to anticipate the actions of other drivers. Tesla has changed its driver monitoring strategy to promote driver attention to the driving environment." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After an in-depth investigation, the NHTSA concludes that the driver-assist software in the Tesla Model S has no safety defects and they have declined to issue a recall.

Woody Johnson May Disappoint as New York Jets Owner, But Trump Thinks He'll Make A Great U.K. Ambassador-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to #YahooSports, president-elect #DonaldTrump has tapped #NewYork #Jets owner #WoodyJohnson to be named the U.S. ambassador to the #UnitedKingdom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump revealed his newest appointment during a luncheon in Washington D.C. Thursday, just one day prior to him being sworn in as the 45th U.S. president. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Robert Wood “Woody” Johnson IV purchased the Jets 17 years ago. He is a longtime donor of the Republican Party. He once served for Jeb Bush’s campaign but then shifted his support to #Trump after Bush dropped from the race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Johnson also was a vice chairman of the victory committee for campaign’s and has hosted several fundraisers for him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While Johnson steps into his new role in the administration, his younger brother Christopher Wold Johnson will be taking on the responsibility of the team. While it's unclear how well Woody will do in this role, hopefully he does more in this position than he has as an #NFL team owner.
