    If you're looking for an out-of-this-world gift this Valentine's Day, an auction house is offering up rare meteorite chunks from the moon, Mars and beyond — for as little as $250. In an online sale beginning Tuesday, February 9, Christie's auction house is auctioning off 72 meteorites — solid pieces of debris from celestial objects like comets and asteroids that arrive on Earth as shooting stars, somehow managing to survive their journey through our atmosphere to land on the surface.   "The weight of every known meteorite is less than the world's annual output of gold, and this sale offers spectacular examples for every collector, available at estimates ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars," the auction house wrote on its website.  Included in the collection is a meteorite containing 7 billion-year-old stardust, space gems encased in iron and the fourth-largest slice of the moon. A large chunk...
    Savannah Rychcik January 10, 2021 0 Comments Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is sharing his thoughts on whether President Donald Trump’s actions leading up to the siege at the U.S. Capitol amount to an impeachable offense. “What we had was an incitement to riot at the United States Capitol. We had people killed, and to me, there’s not a whole lot of question here,” Christie said during his appearance on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. George Stephanopoulos pressed Christie on whether he believes it is an impeachable offense. “Oh sure, yeah,” Christie added. He asked Christie if he would vote to impeach Trump. “If I think it’s an impeachable offense that’s exactly what I would do,” Christie replied. He continued, “If inciting to insurrection isn’t, then I don’t really know what is.” Check out his comments below: Chris Christie tells @GStephanopoulos Trump’s...
    The White House finally lowered its flags to half staff on Sunday after three days of criticism over Donald Trump refusing to make the symbolic move to honor the Capitol Police officer who died from injuries sustained during Wednesday's Capitol riot.  On Sunday evening, the White House caved into the pressure to lower the flag and order the same be done at military posts and other federal buildings and public grounds. In a proclamation on Sunday evening, Trump released a statement claiming he was not lowering the flags for just Sicknick, but for 'all law enforcement'. 'As a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice of United States Capitol Police Officers Brian D. Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, and all Capitol Police Officers and law enforcement across this great Nation… I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff,' Trump said in his statement....

Chris Christie on Sunday responded to President Trump’s pardon of Charles Kushner — the real estate developer that the then-US attorney Christie prosecuted in 2004 — saying only that it highlighted the “extraordinary” work of his office. “What it doesn’t overshadow is the extraordinary work that my office did 16 years go,” Christie said on ABC News’ “This Week.” “Let’s remember, the case was not tried.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he believed President Donald Trump is “hurting himself” and the country by continuing to challenge the results of the 2020 election. “I think he’s hurting himself, and I think he’s hurting the country by keeping it going,” Christie said in a Sunday interview with Joel Pollak on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday. “I mean, the fact is, listen, I’m a big supporter of the president. I was the first one of his 2016 opponents to endorse him. We’ve been friends for 20 years. I prepared him for his debates in 2016, headed his transition in 2016, prepared him for his debates in 2020. “But there’s no evidence that I’ve seen that there was fraud that occurred in this election that would change the result, nor have courts all across this country found any such evidence, either,” Christie said. “We’ve continued to hear from people like Sidney Powell that,...

During an appearance on ABC’s election coverage, Christie was asked by anchor George Stephanopoulos about his experience as the incoming Trump administration’s lead transition official in 2016. The ABC anchor began by noting that the transition efforts mostly happen behind the scenes and the cooperation involved can stand in stark contrast to the political differences among outgoing and incoming presidents. “Chris, you were the original transition director for President Trump last time around. do you think beneath the Biden – Trump level, the teams will get together pretty quickly?” Stephanopoulos asked. “They already have. The laws require that. Ted Kaufman is running his transition. He’s already been talking to Chris Liddell in the White House,” Christie divulged, referring to Biden’s...
