Dale Earnhardt Jr. crashes into tree after helping car stuck in snow

Dale Earnhardt Jr. crashes into tree after helping car stuck in snow

It could be said that former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. has some of the best driving skills ever, having made a living out of going more than 200 miles an hour on some of our country’s toughest racetracks. Yet, with snow involved, Earnhardt got into some trouble while trying to help other people stuck in the weather.>> Read more trending news  “(North Carolina) stay off the roads today/tonight. Five minutes after helping these folks I center punched a pine tree,” Dale shared on his Twitter page on Wednesday shortly after stopping to help some stranded travelers on the road. “All good. Probably just needs a new alignment,” he added. Fans were were thankful Earnhardt was OK, but the tweet didn’t come without some NASCAR jokes.  “Jr. did you attempt to turn right? Gets ya every time,” one Twitter user said. Earnhardt’s accident comes a day after the former NASCAR driver, voted the sport’s most popular driver for 15 consecutive years, announced the day before that he would be covering the Winter Olympics and the Super Bowl in the coming weeks as part of his new deal as a contributor to NBC Sports. Unfortunately, Dale Jr. was not the only driver to find himself in harm’s way thanks to the snow, as NASCAR driver Daniel Suarez found himself stuck in the snow on the side of the road in his sports car Wednesday. Michael Waltrip decided to drive in snowy conditions in North Carolina, and appeared to do so safely in his Ford and later in his Toyota Tundra. Driver Kevin Harvick thought better of it, making the decision to stay in and enjoy the snow off the main roads.

Grandson surprises grandfather with restored 1957 Chevy

Fred Lamar’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air sat in a garage, just as he left it, for 30 years. >> Read more trending newsUntil about a year ago, when his grandson, Cameron Dedman, started restoring the iconic Motor City machine. On Saturday, Lamar, 81, nearly passed out when the car was revealed to him. “I have been doing a full frame off restoration of this car a big surprise for my grandpa,” Dedman wrote in a post with the photos of the restored Bel Air. “He’s my best friend and truly deserves it.” Lamar has owned the vehicle since the 1950s. The pair plan to take it to car shows this spring and summer, according to WHAS.

House Republicans overcome differences, approve 4-week funding bill for Uncle Sam

House Republicans overcome differences, approve 4-week funding bill for Uncle Sam

After a full day of uncertainty, the House of Representatives on Thursday evening approved a plan to fund the federal government until February 16, sending the measure to the Senate, where the bill is likely to be derailed by strong opposition from Democrats and a few Republicans. The final House vote was 228-196 in favor of the plan to fund the federal government to February 16, as Republicans made clear that if a shutdown occurs, it should be blamed on the Democrats. “My friends on the other side are showing why the people, the American people, like root canals, head lice, colonoscopies more than Congress,” said Rep. Pete Olsen (R-TX). Democrats fired right back, saying that Republicans were to blame for the legislative brouhaha over government funding, repeatedly saying the GOP is in charge of the House, Senate, and White House. “You can do anything you want,” said Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ). House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi was even more pointed, arguing that an extra item in the funding bill to insure resources for children’s health coverage was “like a bowl of doggie doo with a cherry on top.” Pelosi compares GOP proposal on CHIP to 'doggie doo' with a cherry on top. pic.twitter.com/hXQrgM5emU — Oliver Willis (@owillis) January 18, 2018 For other Democrats, the calculus on this vote was simple – if there was no provision in the measure to deal with the DACA program and the future of illegal immigrant “Dreamers,” then they weren’t going to support it. “No DACA,” said Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV). “I am a nay vote tonight.” As the day went on, there was a distinctly higher volume of verbal barbs between the two parties, as President Donald Trump and GOP leaders took clear aim at Democrats in Congress, hoping to win the battle of public opinion on who would be responsible for any government shutdown. Just a few hours before the House vote, a bloc of more conservative Republicans in the House Freedom Caucus had vowed to vote against the bill, frustrated with the process that has once again left Congress far behind on budget work for 2018. “I mean it’s a broken system,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL). “It baffles me and it perplexes me, because I come from the business world, that we don’t run our country better.” “When will Republicans start limiting government?” asked Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), who voted against the temporary funding plan. The head of the Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), told reporters that he won assurances from GOP leaders for votes in coming weeks to hold votes on funding for the military, along with a vote on a GOP designed immigration bill. Meadows says that in an effort to get the Freedom Caucus on board he has been told they will vote within the next 10 legislative days to separate out defense spending from non-defense spending an bust the caps. Also a commitment to work on 'a conservative immigration bill.' — Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) January 19, 2018 But even if those bills were to be approved in the House, they would not have 60 votes to make it through the U.S. Senate, which could bring the Congress, the President, and the nation to the brink of the first government funding crisis since 2013. In October of that year, Republicans in the Senate blocked action on funding bills to protest the Obama health law – but after 16 days, they gave in, and their effort fared badly in some polls, though it seemingly had no effect on the GOP in the next election. In the Senate, Republicans were clearly preparing to blame Democrats for stopping the stopgap budget – known as a “CR” or “Continuing Resolution,” even though there may not even be a majority ready to vote for the funding plan.

At odds on immigration and spending, Congress stares at a Friday night government shutdown

Unable to bridge the partisan divide on immigration, federal spending levels and more, Republicans and Democrats in the Congress were on the verge of letting funding for the government lapse at midnight on Friday night, as members of both parties eagerly pointed the finger of blame at each other for the spending impasse, which could trigger the first federal shutdown in over four years.

“That would be a mistake,” said Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). “Government shutdowns do not make sense.”

That Republican argument carried the day in the House, as lawmakers voted mainly along party lines Thursday evening in favor of a [More]
