Election Day is here and it’s all high-stakes in the 2018 midterms, with Democrats fighting to take back control of the House of Representatives and Republicans hoping to keep their majority in both the house and senate. By casting their ballots, American voters have the opportunity to either stymie or accelerate President Donald Trump’s policy agenda. As of right now, Republicans currently control both the House and the Senate. But that all could change tonight with Democrats currently holding an 88 per cent chance of winning back the House. If Democrats win back the house, can Trump get impeached? It is likely, but there are caveats. If Democrats end up taking back the House, we can expect to see more calls to launch investigations into Trump’s scandals and controversies.

Does anyone win publishers clearing house sweepstakes
Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EDT Nov 3, 2018 Just when you think the red flags relating to a scam should be pretty clear, you hear more troubling reports when it comes to sweepstakes and gift cards.

The end result: You only lose money, you don't win anything. Nearly a half-million people reported some sort of lottery- or sweepstakes-related fraud to enforcement agencies in the United States and Canada in the last three years. Reported losses totaled $117 million in 2017, according to a Better Business Bureau report. The actual number of victims and … [Read more...] about Lottery scams: Fraudsters use sweepstakes, gift cards to steal money

Michael O'Flynn, chief executive of the O'Flynn Group, said Ireland still needed to address the cost of land and the lack of housing supply in the short term. By 2020, Ireland's housing supply is expected to reach 27,000 units a year - against a soaring demand of 35,000 units … [Read more...] about Warning that land agency does not offer short-term housing fix

Today it was the turn of Greg Hands, who announced that he was stepping down as a junior trade minister in order to vote against Heathrow expansion. The vote on building one more runway at the airport finally comes on Monday, and Tory MPs will be whipped to support it. Hands, always a loyalist, was very polite when he announced he was off, describing it as an ‘honour’ to serve Theresa May and previously David Cameron, but he needed to honour his 2017 election pledge to oppose the new runway. He’ll be replaced by George Hollingberry, another true loyalist who has served May as her PPS and is one of her most trusted colleagues. It’s hardly a … [Read more...] about Hands off, Hollingberry in: does anyone notice ministerial resignations any more?
