    Just a few years after boasting that tickets for his appearance on Saturday Night Live were the “hardest to get in the history of this great show,” President Donald Trump on Sunday morning again expressed his unhappiness with his portrayal on the long time NBC comedy program, as he issued a familiar blast, saying the “RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.” “Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC,” the President tweeted early on Sunday morning, before he left his Florida retreat at Mar-a-Lago for a round of golf, as Mr. Trump again complained about his treatment by the press. “Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution?” the President tweeted. While Mr. Trump did not specify what had earned his ire, Saturday Night Live began its latest show with actor Alec Baldwin portraying the President at his Friday news conference, where the President announced a national emergency to funnel money from the Pentagon into a border wall. It was a different story for President Trump back in November of 2015, when his appearance helped the show’s ratings. “Thank you to all of those who gave me such wonderful reviews for my performance,” the President said a few days after his NBC appearance – before many people gave him a serious chance to win the White House. But by October of 2016 – as the election approached – the President did not like what he was seeing on Saturday Night Live, and that has kept going in 2017 and 2018 as well, no matter how many times he’s tuned in, or seen highlights aimed at him. Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016 I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016 Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2016 . @NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2017 Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2018 A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 16, 2018 Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2019 The President’s last two tweets – on Sunday morning, and back in December, both used the word “Collusion” in his attacks on Saturday Night Live as well. It was different when he was Candidate Trump – in November of 2015. Thank you to all of those who gave me such wonderful reviews for my performance on @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live. Best ratings in 4 years! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 9, 2015 They are saying that tickets to tonight's Saturday Night Live are the hardest to get in the history of this great show! Off to a good start! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2015
  • Broken Arrow police were called to a home near Kenosha and S. 145th E. Ave. on Tuesday night. The victim says three males kicked in the front door. The three people took off running when the victim fired a gun. Two of the suspects were armed with a handgun.  Friday morning police released that they arrested 20-year-old Zackary Mosley. Investigators are still looking for the other two suspects. No one was hurt.
  • On July 24th, 1969 Navy frogman John Wolfram was the first person to greet Apollo astronauts back to earth after they became the only humans to have walked on the surface of the moon. But that is only part of Wolfram’s story, which he will share this Sunday at a Tulsa church (see details below). His participation in the Apollo 11 mission to the moon happened in between two deployments to Vietnam. On that second deployment, he was injured and received the Purple Heart. He also had a drug habit, and tells KRMG a bad LSD trip brought him close to suicide. [Hear our full interview with John Wolfram and Pastor Don Martin] He returned to the states and eventually, found himself at a Pentecostal revival meeting. “I went back to my apartment that night and I took a pillow case and filled it up with marijuana and pot and LSD and pills and all the drug paraphernalia, and took it down to the San Diego Bay and baptized them - threw them away,” he told KRMG. He’s spent the next several decades as a missionary around the world, but his primary focus is on Vietnam. He helped build a church there, dedicated to the memory of his friends who died in the war. The public is invited to meet Wolfram and hear his story Sunday (Feb. 17th, 2019) at the Metro Pentecostal Church in Tulsa, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The church is located at 8611 E. 21st Street.
  • The flu vaccine is doing a relatively good job this season, protecting about half the people who got it, U.S. health officials said Thursday. Preliminary figures suggest the vaccine is 47 percent effective in preventing flu illness severe enough to send someone to the doctor’s office. Health officials are generally pleased if a flu vaccine works in 40 to 60 percent of people. “These are early estimates, but they are encouraging,” said Dr. Alicia Fry of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Somewhere between 10,000 and 16,000 people have died from flu and its complications so far this season, according to new estimates released Thursday. Last winter was dominated by a nasty kind of flu, and the vaccine’s weakness against it was one reason it was the deadliest flu season in at least four decades. An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications. This winter, in most parts of the country, most illnesses are being caused by a somewhat milder virus that vaccines tend to perform better against. Overall, flu is widespread in 47 states, according to the most recent CDC data. Health officials don’t know if flu season has peaked yet, Fry said.
  • As President Donald Trump on Friday announced a pair of executive actions and declared a national emergency to funnel more money into border security, lawmakers in both parties in Congress were left in the dark on how the Pentagon would deal with the largest part of the President’s declaration, carving $3.6 billion out of military construction projects authorized and funded by the U.S. House and Senate. “I strongly believe securing our border should not be done at the expense of previously funded military construction projects,” said Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), whose district is home to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, which received $116 million in 2019 for construction of a new building for the National Air and Space Intelligence Center. “We certainly cannot allow him to rob our military of $3.5 billion for critical construction projects that serve our troops, support our allies, and deter our adversaries,” said Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI). Congress approved $10.3 billion for military construction for Fiscal Year 2019, doling out money to dozens of domestic and overseas military facilities, projects which are often prized as bring-home-the-bacon items for Democrats and Republicans alike in Congress. The list of military construction projects in each year’s budget runs the gamut of military needs – from an F-35 maintenance hangar at Camp Pendleton in California, to a training facility at the Mayport Naval Base near Jacksonville, Florida, to a reserve training center at Fort Benning in Georgia, to a dry dock facility at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, and much more. In all, military construction money was approved last fall by lawmakers for defense installations in 38 different states, and at least 14 overseas locations, some of those U.S. possessions. You can read through the list of projects from the bill here. A quick look at the list of military facilities with 2019 funding shows that many of them are located in House districts held by Republican lawmakers – who could find money for their local military project in jeopardy, as the President tries to funnel more money to his signature border wall. Democrats from around the country were quick to issue statements asking that their home state military construction projects be spared from any cuts, and challenging their GOP colleagues to do the same. Trump’s “National Emergency” strips billlions of dollars from base housing construction. Martha will you join me in opposing this farce? Who is more important the military spouses or your obedience to the President? https://t.co/Z56pZ9VRYr — Ruben Gallego (@RubenGallego) February 15, 2019 The President's unconstitutional action threatens to take money away from construction at Nellis Air Force Base, and local national security activities that keep Nevada families safe. I will support the House’s actions to restore order and protect Nevadans. — Rep. Steven Horsford (@RepHorsford) February 15, 2019 Since Trump reportedly plans to take money from existing military construction projects for his #nationalemergency, this could steal millions in approved & necessary funding away from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. #mepolitics My full statement on his authoritarian power grab pic.twitter.com/djQdIcHmub — Chellie Pingree (@chelliepingree) February 15, 2019 The Pentagon and the White House had no answers for reporters on Friday on which military construction projects would be put on hold, whether from the 2019 budget, or from money approved by Congress, but not yet spent from previous years. “We would be looking at lower priority military construction projects,” a senior administration official told reporters on a Friday conference call before the President’s announcement. That official – and another senior White House official on the call – both downplayed the amount of money being taken from military construction, with one saying the budget was ‘substantially’ more than the $3.6 billion being diverted by the President. But that’s not the case. “I sit on the committee that funds Military Construction,” said Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) tweeted on Friday. “Trump is taking $3.5 billion out of the $10 billion that’s in the account. That’s 35%.” Earlier this month, the Republican chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee specifically said his biggest concern about an emergency would be taking money out of military construction, a point Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) emphasized again this week. “As I heard in a hearing yesterday, military housing and all military installations are facing disrepair and poor conditions,” Inhofe said. “We cannot afford to allow them to be further impacted.”
  • A sheriff’s deputy in Ohio is recovering after being set on fire by the man he was trying to serve a warrant on, WJW reported. Portage County Sheriff David Doak said the deputy, whose name has not been released, was trying to serve the paperwork on the suspect at a home in Rootstown Township, when the man allegedly threw a container of flammable liquid on the deputy, according to WJW. The suspect, whose name was also not released, then set the deputy on fire, the sheriff said in a press release. >> Read more trending news  The deputy had severe burns and was given first aid as other deputies took the suspect into custody, WJW reported. The deputy was admitted to an area hospital burn unit. His condition was not released. The home where the incident happened was damaged in the fire, Cleveland.com reported. Several deputies were also treated for smoke inhalation, according to the news outlet.
  • President Donald Trump will use a combination of executive actions and one national emergency declaration to funnel over $6 billion in funds not directly approved Congress for security efforts along the border with Mexico, tapping money from both the Treasury Department and the Pentagon, with a goal of building a minimum of 234 new miles of border barriers, White House officials said on Friday. “With the declaration of a national emergency, the President will have access to roughly $8 billion worth of money that can be used to secure the southern border,” said Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, in a phone call with reporters before the President’s announcement. Mulvaney said the money will come from several sources, as a national declaration will be used in one instance – to take $3.6 billion in military construction money already approved by Congress for other projects – and re-direct that to border security. “It shouldn’t surprise anybody that the President under certain circumstances has the right to use military construction dollars in order to build things to help defend the nation,” Mulvaney said. Mulvaney said the President will also use executive actions to grab money from a Pentagon fund which deals with counter-drug activities, and a Treasury Department forfeiture fund. When combined with the $1.375 billion in border security funding approved on Thursday by the Congress, these actions would give the President close to $8 billion for border security measures in 2019. Asked about President Trump setting a precedent which could be exploited by future Democrats in the White House, Mulvaney sharply criticized such evaluations as incorrect. “It actually creates zero precedent, this is authority given to the President in law 0already,” Mulvaney said, as he rejected talk by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others that it would allow Democrats to declare emergencies on gun violence or other issues. “That’s completely false,” Mulvaney said. “If the Democrats could have figured out a way to do that, they would have done that already.” Maybe the most contentious part of the President’s decision will be over the $3.6 billion being taken out of military construction, which has a budget in 2019 of $10.3 billion. Asked for specifics on what projects would be deferred, senior administration officials had no answers for reporters. The authority for the action on military construction money comes from Title X, Section 2808, which allows a President to re-direct such funds under a national emergency – also allows the Congress to try to block the move. “Yanking money from the Military Construction budget is a violation of the law and the constitution, and an abdication of our obligation to responsibly fund the military,” said Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), as members of both parties have weighed in against the idea.
  • The discount shoe retailer Payless ShoeSource could close most if not all of its 2,700 stores once it files for bankruptcy later this month, CNBC is reporting. Company owners have been trying to find someone to buy the chain, but have not been able to make a deal. Unless someone steps forward to save the business, stores are expected to begin going-out-of-business sales next week, a source told Reuters. Payless could also sell blocks of stores in various parts of the country, CNBC reported. If bankruptcy is filed, this will be the second time the company has done so. Payless filed for bankruptcy in April 2017 and came out of it more than a year ago, still having $400 million in loans from a previous total of $800 million, court filings showed and creditors took ownership of Payless, Reuters reported.  >>Read: Payless becomes Palessi to prove point in new advertising campaign Payless also closed about 400 stores, CNBC reported. The company has not responded to Reuters or CNBC’s requests for comments. Payless was founded in 1956, according to Bloomberg.
  • Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter released what were confidential documents Thursday in the case against the nation’s leading opioid manufacturers. The state’s top lawyer says Purdue Pharma executed a covert disinformation campaign that attacked attorneys general who had filed lawsuits against opioid manufacturers. “These documents are damning evidence showing Purdue executives were more interested in spreading propaganda than stopping the death toll from rising and fixing the problem they created,” said Attorney General Hunter. Hunter says the documents show Purdue planted stories in national publications and on social media. The idea was to shift blame for the growing opioid crisis to victims of opioid addiction and de-legitimize the lawsuits. “The company’s actions are absolutely appalling,” said Hunter. 
  • The House and Senate moved swiftly on Thursday to approve a package of unfinished spending bills for 2019, as President Donald Trump signaled that he would sign the measures into law in order to avoid a second partial government shutdown on Friday night, but the White House said the President would go a step further and declare a national emergency to funnel more money into his campaign pledge for a border wall. “President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency – to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. While there were sharp differences on the use of executive powers by the President to fund his signature campaign promise, there was much more bipartisan agreement on finishing work on seven different bills which fund about one-quarter of the federal government. The Senate passed the plan 86-13, while the House gave it overwhelming approval a few hours later. As for the national emergency, it was not immediately clear what emergency laws or procedures the President would use, or what pots of money Mr. Trump would try to tap in order to divert more resources to border security efforts, which he felt were underfunded in the House-Senate deal, which gave $1.375 billion to border barriers – Mr. Trump had requested $5.7 billion. While many Republicans also wanted more money, a number had strong reservations about the President going around Congress to take money from other areas to fund construction of a wall. . @marcorubio on Trump going ahead with an emergency declaration for the border wall: “Depends how he structures it but i generally don’t think it’s a good idea.” — Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) February 14, 2019 “President Trump is opening the door for any future President to act alone without Congressional approval,” said Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). But GOP leaders in both the House and Senate signaled that they would support the President on executive action to get more money for a wall. “I support the President in declaring a national emergency,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). “I support President Trump using constitutional executive action to build the wall and keep our country safe,” said Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA). As for Democrats, they spared little in their in their denunciations of the President’s emergency plan. “If Trump circumvents Congress to declare a National Emergency, it would be grounds for impeachment,” said Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI). “If the President declares a national emergency tonight, we must challenge it in court tomorrow,” said Rep. Joe Neguse (D-CO). “Declaring a national emergency is irresponsible,” said Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA). “Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President Trump broke his core promise to have Mexico pay for his wall,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer in a joint statement. Things that warrant a #NationalEmergency declaration: The attack on Pearl Harbor; the 9/11 terrorist attacks; Hurricane Katrina. Things that DO NOT warrant a #NationalEmergency declaration: Not getting your way in a democracy. — Senator Tom Carper (@SenatorCarper) February 14, 2019 “The President’s emergency declaration is irresponsible, counterproductive, and an overreach of his constitutional authority,” said Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI). GOP supporters of an executive ’emergency declaration’ said Congress had given the President a series of legitimate options. “There’s three different statutes,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the head of the House Freedom Caucus, who has fully endorsed the idea of unilateral action by Mr. Trump. One example is Section 2808 of Title X, covering military construction authority in the event of a declaration of war or national emergency – there is also another section, 284, which deals with powers to combat counter drug activities. Democrats vowed to immediately force votes in the House and Senate to overturn any emergency declaration, and threatened court action as well, as they said what Mr. Trump was planning to do was an attack on the Constitution. “This isn’t about building or stopping the wall; it’s about defending the Constitution,” said Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ).

Preliminary figures suggest the vaccine is 47 percent effective in preventing flu illness severe enough to send someone to the doctor’s office. Health officials are generally pleased if a flu vaccine works in 40 to 60 percent of people. “These are early estimates, but they are encouraging,” said Dr. Alicia Fry of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Somewhere between 10,000 and 16,000 people have died from flu and its complications so far this season, according to new estimates released Thursday.
