Here Are The Top 10 Worst Traffic Bottlenecks For Trucks In The Country

Here Are The Top 10 Worst Traffic Bottlenecks For Trucks In The CountryCongestion is a problem for almost every driver. But for professional truckers, knowing how, when, and where to drive in order to avoid traffic can make a huge difference. How big of a difference? Every year, the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) publishes a list of the most congested highways in the country for freight. As the research arm of the American Trucking Association (ATA), the ATRI has a huge set of truck GPS data to draw from. According to the ATRI, the number one most congested bottleneck in the country is on I-95 in New Jersey. The intersection with Route 4 just before the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan adds an extra 29 minutes of driving each day. The average speed for a truck in that area is 31.7mph. And even during non-peak hours, it only goes…

Coast Guard Lieutenant Compiled Hit List of Lawmakers, Feds Say

Coast Guard Lieutenant Compiled Hit List of Lawmakers, Feds SayWASHINGTON—A Coast Guard lieutenant who was arrested last week is a “domestic terrorist” who drafted an email discussing biological attacks and had what appeared to be a hit list that included prominent Democrats and media figures, prosecutors said in court papers. Christopher Paul Hasson is due to appear Thursday in federal court in Maryland after his arrest on gun and drug offenses, but prosecutors say those charges are the “proverbial tip of the iceberg.” “The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect governmental conduct,” prosecutors wrote in court papers. Hasson, who works at the Coast Guard’s headquarters in Washington, has espoused extremist views for years, according to prosecutors. Court papers detail a June 2017 draft email in which Hasson wrote that he was “dreaming of a way to kill almost every…

To Reduce Money in Politics, Slash the Size of Government

To Reduce Money in Politics, Slash the Size of GovernmentLike a terrifying demon that returns during the final scene of a horror movie, campaign-finance reform is the “thing” that never goes away. The U.S. Supreme Court sometimes saves the day, as it did with the First-Amendment-related Citizens United case in 2010. Yet reformers always have a new scheme to take “the money out of politics,” even though their last schemes always resulted in more cash influencing political campaigns. The campaign-finance scaremongers are baaaack with a symbolic bill that is a political poke-in-the-eye of the sleazy-seeming Trump administration. It could never pass the Senate or gain a presidential signature, but it makes a point. Now that they have a majority in the House, Democrats are pushing H.R. 1, which Vox describes as a “sweeping anti-corruption measures aimed at stamping out the influence of money in politics and expanding voting rights.” The…

The United States Is Still Trying to Sell North Korea on Denuclearization

The United States Is Still Trying to Sell North Korea on DenuclearizationIt was a remarkable statement: “I don’t know if North Korea has made the choice yet to denuclearize,” a senior Trump administration official noted on Thursday, just days before Donald Trump is due to meet Kim Jong Un for a second summit that the president has touted as evidence of his success in ending the North Korean nuclear threat.Eight months after the U.S. and North Korean leaders first met in Singapore, the official’s admission underscored that the key question looming over the next round of negotiations in Vietnam is still whether Kim will give up his nuclear program, not how he will do so.“The reason why we’re engaged in this is because we believe there’s a possibility that North Korea could make the choice to fully denuclearize,” said the official, in briefing reporters on condition of anonymity about the…

Once a Critic of Executive Power, Trump Is Now Taking Us Closer to Rule by Decree

Once a Critic of Executive Power, Trump Is Now Taking Us Closer to Rule by DecreeIt’s difficult to think much of an “emergency” that the president himself admits he declared just so he could get what he wants faster and without the muss and fuss of normal governing procedures. Unfortunately, President Donald Trump’s declaration “that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States” just because neither house of Congress, under either major political party, has been impressed with his demands for funding for a border wall isn’t an unheard of abuse of presidential authority. Emergency declarations by tantrum-throwing wannabe American monarchs play a large and dangerous role in U.S. politics. In continuing that unpleasant tradition, Trump’s action is less of a break from the past than a risky step toward a dictatorial future. “Well, I got $1.4 billion. But I’m not happy with it,” Trump told…
