Pete Buttigieg said Wednesday there will be 'accountability' if an investigation finds there are specific entities or individuals responsible for the Baltimore bridge collapse. The promise from the Transportation Secretary comes after President Joe Biden vowed the day the Francis Scott Bridge went down into the Patapsco River that the federal government would foot the bill for reconstruction. The 1.6-mile bridge partially collapsed after a cargo shipping container vessel crashed into one of its support structures just before 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Why is Congress securing the funding and not the shipping company?

The ship at fault should have primary responsibility... Expect them to evaporate as an entity. As a vital link of an interstate, highway, I would expect the feds to put up 90% and the state 10%. It would be proper, convert this to a toll bridge. The indirect losses from the bridge being out? Incalcubly large, widely spread, and virtually impossible to monetize…or collect. Mayor. Pete…beyond his pay grade, and rapidly approaching his past due date

Re posters comments on the insurance company picking up the tab. As a retired agent, I can guess the ship’s insurance company will pay out the policy limits fairly quickly. However, that probably will only make up a small portion of the damage. You have deaths, injuries and massive property damage. Next under the gun will be the ship owner itself and will result in bankruptcy. Other suits could be aimed at the bridge architects, the city and whoever else the trial lawyers can think of.

The feds cover the cost because this is a federal economic issue concerning the ninth largest port in the country and because litigation is going to take years to recover funds from the ship owners. The region and the country will take a huge economic hit if the Port of Baltimore is not up and running as fast as possible. The port handles more new vehicles than any other port in the country. While certain makes such as BMW, VW, Mercedes, and Mini won't be affected because those cars come to another location before the bridge, many Japanese makes and others will be affected as will spare parts for those vehicles. Those makes go to the main port and all ships carrying those makes are shut out as long as the channel is closed.

New York— A fundraiser for President Joe Biden on Thursday in New York City that also stars Barack Obama and Bill Clinton is raising a whopping $25 million, setting a record for the biggest haul for a political event, his campaign said. The eye-popping amount was a major show of Democratic support for Biden at a time of persistently low poll numbers. The president will test the power of the campaign cash as he faces off with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who proved with his 2016 win over Democrat Hillary Clinton that he didn’t need to raise the most money to seize the presidency.

For the longest time, the media played this game of pretending that it doesn’t consist entirely of a bunch of leftist activists who exist to promote their political agenda and attack those of their political opponents. The pretense is wearing thin. And who knew that Ronna McDaniel of all people would be the breaking point? But it’s kind of like the way that the media’s attacks on dishwater liberals like McCain and Romney, portraying them as Hitler 2.0 just because they posed a threat to Obama, helped kill the media’s credibility.

In addition to terms describing Islamic terrorists, ODNI instructs employees to avoid phrases such as "blacklisted," "cakewalk," "brown bag," "grandfathered," and "sanity check."

A 3,000-acre solar farm 40 miles from Houston, Texas, was massively damaged on March 15 when huge chunks of hail fell from the sky and shattered hundreds of panels, leaving the facility running at “reduced capacity.” From the look of the pictures, it would seem that it’s operating at heavily reduced capacity. Not only does the storm highlight the fragility of so-called green energy facilities, but area residents are worried about toxic chemical leaks.

The reconstruction efforts, however, may be complicated by demands that the project further leftwing ideas about racial justice, the treatment of immigrants, climate change, and wealth redistribution. An op-ed in The Hill underscores that some of these demands may be irreconcilable.

The following essay is adapted from the author’s new book, Pagan America: The Decline of Christianity and the Dark Age to Come. It’s hard to survey the state of our country and not conclude that something is very wrong in America.
