  • For the fourth time in the past six days, President Donald Trump has used his platform on Twitter to take a swing at a group of more conservative Republicans in the House, this time raising the specter of using the bully pulpit against them in the 2018 elections, if they don’t get on board with his legislative agenda. “The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast,” Trump said on Twitter. “We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!” he added. The Twitter jabs against the Freedom Caucus are becoming somewhat routine for Mr. Trump, who was frustrated that he was unable to convince those lawmakers to back a GOP health care bill last week. Even before today, those type of tweets by the President have drawn frowns from some members of the Freedom Caucus, who say they’re not budging on their conservative principles, just to give Mr. Trump a legislative victory. “I disagree with him,” Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) said earlier this week, after Mr. Trump signaled his displeasure with the Freedom Caucus opposition to the GOP health bill. “My conscience was to get rid of Obamacare; this doesn’t do it,” Yoho said of the GOP plan that had the blessing of the White House. “Some of the constant tweeting is at minimum distracting, and at maximum, counterproductive to a legislative agenda,” said Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC), who also knocked the President for using Twitter to keep grousing as well about Hillary Clinton. “You’re fighting yesterday’s story if you are fighting against a candidate you were once running against that is no longer the candidate you might be running against,” Sanford said.
  • A person was in critical condition Thursday after being shot in a car on U.S. 78 in DeKalb County, officials said. The incident was confirmed by police to be related to road rage, Channel 2 Action News reported. MORE: Woman accused of road rage, pointing gun at officer  The eastbound side of the highway was shut down for about an hour and a half and two lanes were reopened about 5:45 p.m., Channel 2 reported. Georgia Department of Transportation officials estimate all lanes to clear by 8 p.m. The car veered into the woods about 3:45 p.m., DeKalb County fire spokesman Capt. Eric Jackson said.  The location is near Elizabeth Andrews High School in Stone Mountain. A driver in a black Altima got into an argument with the driver of a Jeep and then shot the Jeep’s driver, DeKalb police spokesman Maj. Stephen Fore told Channel 2. “When they got to this point here on Highway 78, we believe the shot was fired,” Fore said. “It struck the driver of the Jeep and he lost control and crashed the vehicle on the right side of the highway.”    Police were searching for the driver of the Altima, who they believe was the aggressor in the incident, about 6 p.m.   The other driver was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

  • JetBlue launches service at Hartsfield-Jackson International today, initially with only a single route but with hopes to add more. The New York-based carrier will start with five daily flights between Atlanta and Boston. Flights to New York-Kennedy, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale are planned in the future, though the airline has struggled to get its desired gate space at Hartsfield-Jackson. JetBlue started in 1999 as a discount, low-frills airline and has since grown to more than 200 aircraft flying to about 100 destinations. While maintaining a low-cost approach, JetBlue aims to distinguish itself with some extra perks, such as free unlimited snacks like Cheez-Its, Craisins and Terra gourmet potato chips, and free wi-fi. It also sells upgrades to seats with extra legroom. JetBlue has three tiers of fares: Blue, Blue Plus and Blue Flex, offering anywhere from 0 to 2 free checked bags. Blue Flex is a flexible fare class that includes expedited security screening. The airline also has an upscale class of seats called Mint on certain transcontinental and Caribbean routes. For the Atlanta-Boston route, JetBlue plans to use Airbus A320 jets with 150-seats, which don’t have Mint service.i JetBlue tried Atlanta service in 2003 but withdrew within months after bruising competition with Delta Air Lines and AirTran Airways.
