Video: Passengers Push Plane on Runway After Landing Gear Ices Up



A bunch of passengers left their seats to give their frozen plane a push at a snowbound airport in Siberia.

That was the situation at Igarka Airport earlier this week where temperatures of minus 50 Celsius left a Tupolev Tu-134 aircraft stranded on the runway.

Passengers rallied to the rescue when oil in the plane's landing gear iced up, according to UTair, the airline whose livery the plane carries.

According to the Komsomolskaya Pravda website, there were cries of "Let's go!" as two rows of passengers, dressed in heavy coats and thick gloves, each took a wing and apparently began shoving the aircraft into position



 

Video- Ferguson Thug Protesters Flip, Then Set Fire To Police Car



A small group of protesters began breaking the windows of a police cruiser on South Florissant Street, the scene of many of the protests that followed the fatal shooting in August of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, by Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, who is white. The group tried but failed to overturn the car, but someone tossed an incendiary device at it, and the vehicle caught fire.

About a dozen police cars responded, arriving at the scene from two directions. An announcement went out over a loudspeaker: "This has turned into an unlawful protest. You must disperse or you will be arrested, even media."

Schumer: President Obama and Dems were Wrong to Pass Obamacare Instead of Trying to Fix The Economy (Video)

Americans weren't looking for changes in health care...


Sen. Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that Democrats were wrong to pass Obamacare.

“Democrats lost the opportunity the American people gave them. We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem–health care reform,” Schumer said.

Schumer conceded that health care was an important issue, but it was not the primary issue.

“The plight of uninsured Americans and the hardships caused by unfair insurance company practices certainly needed to be addressed, but it was not the change we were hired to make,” Schumer said. “Americans were crying out for the end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs, not changes in health care.”

If Democrats had done the math, they would have realized that health care reform affected just a small portion of the electorate: 5 percent.

MSNBC Contributor: Michael Brown Latest 'Casualty' In 'War on Black Boys'



newsbusters
On the November 24 edition of Hardball, MSNBC contributor Michelle Bernard called for the federal Justice Department to "get involved" in prosecuting Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson regardless of the outcome of the St. Louis County grand jury investigation.

Rehashing a charge she leveled earlier this year, Bernard insisted that Brown was the latest "casualty" of a nationwide "war on black boys," and castigated conservatives who support "state's rights" by suggesting that the notion was simply an excuse for racist, unequal treatment of blacks by law enforcement

New Hampshire 2016: Hillary Clinton Leads Romney, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul


Looks like NH voters don't want that new car smell. In the Dem primary, Clinton has a 49 point lead. Hillary 62%, Elizabeth Warren 13%,  Bernie Sanders 6%

In 2016 presidential matchups, Clinton leads all Republicans



Bloomberg 
Hillary Clinton holds a historic lead in the New Hampshire Democratic primary, although a shift in opinion about the party's brand could be a drag on her candidacy in the general election. Sixty-two percent of likely Democratic voters in the early primary state said they support Clinton in a new Bloomberg Politics/Saint Anselm New Hampshire Poll of likely primary voters conducted by Purple Insights

Though New Hampshire is a small state, it has voted for the winner of the White House in eight of the last nine presidential elections. Clinton runs nearly even with Romney in a head-to-head match-up, with 46 percent of likely general election voters selecting the former first lady and secretary of state and 45 percent selecting the former Massachusetts governor. She has a wider lead—7 percentage points—against Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, whom she beats 47-39 among the same group.
