Trump borrows Clinton's words for State of the Union address

President Trump borrowed a term from a 2010 Hillary Clinton speech in his State of the Union address.

“This in fact is our new American moment, there has never been a better time to start living our American dream,” Trump said Tuesday evening.

“New American moment” was a phrase used in a 2010 speech delivered by then Secretary of State Clinton, as the Washington Post noted in a Sept. 8, 2010, story:

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton declared Wednesday that “a new American moment” has arrived in international relations, “a moment when our global leadership is essential, even if we must often lead in new ways.”

Clinton delivered her remarks at the Council on Foreign Relations, discussing President Obama’s foreign policy plan.

Trump has continued to reference his former presidential rival, as he did two weeks ago during a Pennsylvania speech, but early excerpts of the State of the Union address did not mention her by name.

At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Melania Trump was criticized for lifting quotes from a 2008 Michelle Obama speech.

"It's a historic day," Finance Minister Vic Fedeli said in a speech to the legislature.

    Despite some reluctance from Italy's anti-establishment government, EU leaders will make the call for a new regime to impose economic sanctions more quickly on specific hackers anywhere in the world at their summit on Thursday. "Work on the capacity to respond to and deter cyber attacks through EU restrictive measures should be taken forward," EU leaders will say, according to a draft of their final summit statement, using EU parlance for economic sanctions. "Negotiations on all cybersecurity proposals should be concluded before the end of the (EU) legislature," the draft statement said, referring to the April 18, 2019, closure of the European Parliament's term.

    IT repairman seeks home for Apple collection, possibly world's largest

    An Austrian computer repairman has amassed what he believes could be the world's biggest collection of old Apple computers, but it might all soon be destroyed unless someone can take it off his hands. Over the years since he began working for a company that repaired Apples in Vienna in the 1980s, Roland Borsky's collection has grown to roughly 1,100 computers, he says - far more than the 472 items at Prague's Apple Museum, which says it is the world's biggest private collection of Apple products.

    Roseanne calls TV death 'morbid,' audience slumps for 'The Conners'

    Some 10.5 million viewers watched Tuesday's premiere of "The Conners" on Disney-owned ABC, according to Nielsen data, compared with the 18.4 million Americans who tuned into the first episode of the revival of "Roseanne" in March. "That is was done though an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show," Barr said in a statement. Bruce Helford, one of "The Conners" executive producers, said writers had not wanted to write out the family's fierce matriarch is a way that seemed "pathetic or debased." "I wanted a respectful sendoff for her, too: one that was relevant and could inspire discussion for the greater good about the American working class, whose authentic problems are often ignored by broadcast television," Helford wrote in a column on Wednesday for The Hollywood Reporter.

    Woman convicted of fraud; FBI said she cast 'hoodoo' spells

    An investment adviser was convicted Wednesday of charges she defrauded investors out of millions of dollars, some of which she used to pay more than $800,000 for prayers by Hindu priests in India to ward off federal investigators. Prosecutors said Bennett used money that people had invested in her luxury sportswear company to finance her lavish lifestyle, including six-figure expenditures on astrological gems, cosmetic medical procedures and the religious rituals in India. Jurors heard testimony that Bennett paid a man in Washington state to arrange for Hindu priests to pray for her while her business was collapsing and she faced a Ponzi scheme investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    NewsAlert: Streamlined pardon process for marijuana possession convictions on the way

    The federal government promises it will soon be quicker — and less expensive — to obtain a criminal pardon for simple pot possession convictions of the past. The Liberals have faced pressure to address the pot pardon issue, including within their own caucus, due to the effect of marijuana-related convictions on marginalized Canadians. Until now, simple possession of up to 30 grams of marijuana has been punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and six months in jail.

    Photos: These are the first Canadians to buy legal weed

    As of 12:01 a.m., recreational cannabis became legal across Canada. Well before the hour struck, lineups were queueing up outside pot stores in the country’s biggest cities. Ian Power was the first person to purchase legal marijuana in Canadian history. He lined up at midnight in St. John’s during the opening of the Tweed retail location. That event was attended by Bruce Linton, CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation, which owns the Tweed brand. “I’m elated,” Power told CBC News. “I’m so excited, I can’t stop smiling. I’m not cold. It’s freezing cold out, but I’m not cold.” Power also told The Canadian Press he was not actually going to smoke the first bud he bought, and would keep it as a memento “forever.” On Wednesday morning, stores began opening in other provinces, and more Canadians made their first purchases. Among those waiting outside the store in Sydney River, N.S. was none other than Canadian fiddling legend Ashley MacIsaac. “I don’t need to be a criminal anymore, and that’s a great feeling,” MacIsaac told The Canadian Press. In 2001, he was arrested for possession in Saskatchewan. “And my new dealer is the prime minister!” But not every province and territory has brick-and-mortar locations available. Sales in Ontario will only be through the Ontario Cannabis Store’s website until April 2019 at the earliest. It was down early Wednesday morning, but was back up as of this writing. Alberta’s online pot store also received heavy traffic as soon as 12:01 a.m. hit. At 12:07 a.m. local time, the Alberta Liquor and Gaming Commission tweeted: “You like us! Our website is experiencing some heavy traffic. We are working hard to get it up and running.” Here’s a look at some of the first Canadians to get their hands on legal pot.

    Emergency management officials say the area around a Nova Scotia town's sinkhole remains unsafe, three months after it first appeared in a local park. The sinkhole first appeared in mid-July as a hole the size of a dinner plate, and quickly grew to larger than 32.6 metres by 38.7 metres, swallowing up trees and picnic benches and drawing curious onlookers to Oxford, N.S. Its growth has slowed to a virtual halt in recent weeks, but new cracks keep appearing both near the sinkhole and in a nearby parking lot.

    Sovereigntist Quebec solidaire members refuse to swear oath to Queen in public

    The 10 members elected Oct. 1 for the sovereigntist left-wing party Quebec solidaire refused to swear allegiance to the Queen publicly Wednesday as they made their entry into the provincial legislature. In public, they declared their loyalty to the Quebec people, the second part of the oath required of all members of the national assembly. Sol Zanetti, who represents a Quebec City riding for the party, said it was "humiliating" to swear an oath that clashed with his personal convictions.
