Michigan brothers face $450,000 in fines for tree removal on their property

Two brothers in Michigan allegedly removed 1,400 hundreds of trees from their property. (Facebook) Brothers in Michigan are facing nearly $500,000 in fines for allegedly removing more than 1,400 trees from their 16-acre property without permission, a report on Monday said. Gary and Matt Percy removed the trees with the intention of creating a Christmas tree farm on the Canton Township plot, their attorney Michael Pattwell told MLive.com. The attorney said that the land was filled with invasive plants. “This case is about misguided overreach,” Pattwell said. “It is unavoidably about whether people who own property are allowed to use it … We contend the Percy brothers exercised a farming exemption in the local tree removal law to clear the historic pasture behind thei...

Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s Bakersfield office attacked with massive rock, he says

Two men apparently attacked the Bakersfield office of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Monday night, throwing a massive rock through one of its windows and burglarizing office equipment inside. McCarthy posted four photographs documenting the alleged episode on Instagram — three showing the individuals he identified as possible suspects, and one providing a clear view of a massive slab of rock lying on the floor amid shattered glass. “Does anyone know these two guys?” McCarthy wrote on the social media site, next to images of two people spotted near his office. The Bakersfield Police Department did not comment on the alleged incident when reached by Fox News and said it would have more information on Tuesday. McCarthy, like several other congressional Re...

California Good Samaritan rescues 3 people from burning truck, cops say

A Good Samaritan pulled three people from a pickup truck that had caught fire after an early Sunday crash, according to Northern California police. Elk Grove police spokesman Jason Jimenez said the three people likely would have died Sunday morning if not for the quick help of neighbor Jeff Garrett, who is being hailed as a hero. Garrett said he’s a light sleeper and went to investigate when he heard the crash. He jumped over the fence in his backyard to help the injured. “I heard a gentleman coughing and it sounded like he was in distress,” Garrett told Fox 40. “So, I looked over past some trees to the left, and I saw the burning car. The engine compartment was already fully in flames.” A good Samaritan who heard the crash got all three occupants of the vehicle out while the vehicle was o...

Gutfeld on a new campus bias study

A new study found that, among campus administrators, liberals outnumber conservatives by 12 to one. To put that in perspective, North Korea has more diversity. The result: a student body going deeper into debt and only exposed to one kind of thinking–the kind that makes kids dumber, so they won’t notice it’s also making them broke. So let’s try some college-level math: the number of college administrators has doubled in the last 25 years. The only thing growing faster is Jesse’s hair. Meanwhile student debt now tops $1.5 trillion dollars – 37 grand per kid. Now, what do you get for that?  A stupidity farm kept afloat on the backs of students and their parents. And cuz they’re not learning anything of practical value, students won’t realize this, of...

Trump commits to plan for middle-income tax cut after Election Day, blasts Central American countries over caravan

Speaking to reporters outside the White House ahead of a trip to Texas on Monday, President Trump recommitted to a new middle-income tax reduction of approximately 10 percent, which he said he hoped would be voted on after Election Day. “We’re giving a middle-income tax reduction of about 10 percent,” Trump said. “That’s on top of the tax decrease we’ve already done. We’ll do the vote after the election.” Trump had earlier floated that tax break after a rally in Nevada on Saturday, when he said a vote would occur “sometime just prior, I would say, to November” — although Congress won’t be back in session until after the midterm elections. The gambit almost certainly would require Republicans to retain control of both t...
