(Charlie Rood)   After the 6:30 news, I had a few observations regarding the news this week broke by the Washington Post of Democratic payments for the “Trump Dossier”.   I find it politically rewarding this story has been turned around.   I continue to find it rewarding how President Trump has turned Washington upside down with his untraditional approach.   And for the old school GOP getting in the way, it’s time to get out of the way (runs  7:51) –

Another statue getting attention…

PITTSBURGH (AP) – The Pittsburgh Art Commission has voted to recommend removing a statue of composer Stephen Foster because it includes a slave with a banjo at Foster’s feet. The commission is asking the city to remove the 117-year-old statue and put it on private property where it can be “properly
contextualized.” Some say the statue is offensive, while others argue it shows
Foster was inspired by black spirituals. Foster wrote songs like “Oh!
Susanna,” “My Old Kentucky Home” and “Camptown Races.” Mayor Bill Peduto will review the recommendation and make a decision.

The Air Force on the naughty list at first, then nice…

MINOT, N.D. (AP) – The U.S. Air Force says its tweet declaring Santa Claus “isn’t real” was just a bluff, part of a threat to steal Christmas from two feuding bases.

Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri jostled on Twitter about which fleet was better. KFGO radio reports the official Air Force account responded that if the bases couldn’t get along, Santa would “bring you nothing this year because he isn’t real!”

After the tweet generated widespread ridicule, the Air Force reversed itself. It declared Santa in fact “is real” and that the previous message was just an attempt to get the bases “in line.”

The Air Force stressed its North American Aerospace Defense Command tracks Santa’s Christmas Eve sleigh travels using satellites, radar and jets.
