Posted March 5, 2019 (Amended March 8, 2019)

President Trump is defying Congress by using his emergency powers to push through arm sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Congress stopped those sales after the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi [[ ka-SHO-gee ]]. The deal for arms is worth about eight billion dollars.       The U.S. Supreme Court is putting a hold on lower court rulings dealing with partisan gerrymandering. The Court is expected to issue a ruling on gerrymandering by Republicans in North Carolina and Democrats in Maryland by the end of June. Lower courts ordered Ohio and Michigan to redraw their maps after finding partisan gerrymandering did take place.       The man who kidnapped a Wisconsin teen and killed her parents is going to spend the rest of his life behind bars. A judge sentenced Jake Patterson to two life sentences for the murders of Jayme Closs's parents and then an additional 40 years for kidnapping the 13-year-old. The sentence comes without the possibility of parole.       Mississippi's "heartbeat" abortion bill is being rejected. A federal judge blocked the law that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. In some cases that could be the sixth week of pregnancy. The judge wrote the law prevents a woman's free choice.       A Colorado rancher accused in the disappearance and presumed death of his fiancee is pleading not guilty to first degree murder. Patrick Frazee [[ FRAY-zee ]] made his plea this morning. His trial is scheduled to start on October 28th. Kelsey Berreth was his fiancée and mother to his child. Her body hasn't been found.       The replica of Noah's Ark is suing because of rain damage, and it didn't even take 40 days and nights. The owners of the Ark Encounter in Northern Kentucky are suing five insurance companies for not covering rain damage to their park. They claim heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on access roads. They are claiming one million dollars in damages.
