Puerto Rico dam on verge of collapse after
Hurricane Maria - 70,000 forced to evacuate
Daily Express [UK], by Leigh Boobyer    Original Article

TENS of thousands of people already devastated by the destruction of Hurricane Maria are being rushed out of their homes after a dam threatens to pour downstream onto the stricken island of Puerto Rico. Emergency officials in Puerto Rico raced to evacuate almost 70,000 people away from the eastern dam on the rain-swollen Guajataca River, which will cave “very soon” under the weight of flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Disaster-struck residents of the area were being ferried to higher ground in buses, according to bulletins issued by the National Weather Service from its office in San Juan, the capital

Donald Trump says NFL

President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve

Jimmy Kimmel, Have You No Shame?

It has been said that you could get a declaration of war against Canada if you claimed it was for the children. While Jimmy Kimmel’s personal story of his child’s medical needs is compelling, his exploitation of that story to advance lies about the Graham-Cassidy ObamaCare replacement is shameful. Not only does he lie to a national audience about Graham-Cassidy’s impact on those with preexisting conditions, he stooped to calling one Louisiana senator a liar and the other an “inbred”. Kimmel called the ObamaCare replacement bill’s co-author, Louisiana GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy, a liar after Cassidy appeared on Kimmel’s late

Not long ago, on a summer afternoon, I found myself in Las Vegas with nothing much to do. My flight back home wasn´t until the next day. The $20 I was willing to throw away on gambling didn´t last as long, so I needed something to do. Luckily, over the last decade or so, Las Vegas has become the machine gun capital of the world. A Mecca of hot lead unloaded at a blistering pace. There´s at least half a dozen places where you can rent some full-auto fun. There´s no other town I´m aware of that has more than

Has Rocket Man conducted another nuclear

A powerful 3.4 magnitude earthquake has rocked North Korea, sparking fears the nuclear-obsessed nation may have conducted a missile test. The tremor was detected in the Kilju area in the North Hamgyong province hours after Donald Trump mocked ´madman´ Kim Jong-un and the dictator called the US President a ´rabid dog´. The earthquake was felt at 3.30am ET (8.30am GMT) at a depth of zero miles, with China´s official Xinhua News Agency saying it was a ´suspected explosion´. A tremor earlier this month was caused by Kim´s sixth nuclear test so it´s no surprise there are fears this is another.

Health Reform: We checked, and we couldn´t find Sen. John McCain telling voters who reelected him in 2016 that he´d repeal ObamaCare, but only if the Senate followed all the proper "procedures." But that´s his excuse now for killing what is likely the last chance to get rid of this law. After signaling that he could support the latest ObamaCare repeal-and-replace effort authored by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, McCain issued a statement saying that "health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate." This is, he says, "the only way we might achieve bipartisan

Yesterday, I saw Senator Coons, Democrat from Delaware say he couldn’t vote for the Graham Cassidy healthcare replacement bill because it didn’t have a clear definition of adequate and affordable for those with preexisting conditions. What a joke! The Affordable Care act (ACA) was an over 2,000 page bill (that most hadn’t read when they voted on it) with massive numbers of mandates and twenty new taxes and I don’t recall Democrats asking for definitions let alone on subjective terms like adequate and affordable. President Obama went around repeating that everyone would be able to keep their plan and doctor

The media take North Korea´s side

Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they´ll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does. After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy. Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no

The Left Warms Up To North
Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is growing in popularity on America’s political left-wing as the despot engages in a war of words with President Trump. Progressives have shown an increasing willingness to embrace the brutal dictator as a means of attacking Trump, and some in the media have given the brutal dictator friendly, celebrity-like coverage. Left-wing activists, meanwhile, are eagerly spreading pro-North Korea propaganda and making excuses for the dictator’s murderous activities. Un’s public attacks on Trump on Tuesday prompted praise for the dictator by some in the media. Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak fawned over Un in a column

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

It was late in April, not long after he had filed his first three lawsuits against Fox News and was gearing up to file three more that the lawyer Douglas Wigdor decided he needed a flow chart. His legal barrage against the network was getting confusing. Litigation was flying everywhere. It was leaping off his desk. And so one day he sat down with some lawyers at his law firm in Manhattan, Wigdor L.L.P., and put together an Excel spreadsheet titled “Chart All Fox Litigation.” There were columns for the captions of the cases, for the names of the various plaintiffs,

The right stuff from a first lady

First ladies are usually, but not always, eager to establish themselves as separate but equal personalities. Some of them are content to be the “wife of,” but nearly all of them leave their mark on a presidency, even if only their husbands know the details of how and when the mark was applied. (Snip)Melania Trump, our first immigrant first lady, harks to the traditions and verities that were the strength of an earlier time. She wants to promote good and effective family life, and a recognition of the effect good families have on the nation’s comfort and security. “Show me

Like virtually all Democrats, Tim Ryan is no fan of Donald Trump. But as he speeds through his northeastern Ohio district in a silver Chevy Suburban, the eight-term Congressman sounds almost as frustrated with his own party. (Snip)No one waits on the horizon to broker a peace. The DNC has been hollowed out, first by Obama´s neglect and then by a Clinton campaign that raided its talent. Now it is trying to play catch-up, sending $10,000 a month to each state party to help add bodies and channel activists´ energy into permanent organizations. But the party is still $3.5 million

A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to give the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed documents related to the Trump dossier. And for a third time, the bureau has not produced the material. The dossier is a collection of what former FBI Director James Comey called "salacious and unverified" allegations of collusion between Russia and Trump campaign figures in the 2016 campaign. The Russia allegations were compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is thought to have been paid for the work by wealthy

President Trump rallied with his Alabama supporters on Friday evening for more than an hour in a last-ditch effort to push incumbent Sen. Luther Strange across the finish line in next week’s tight Republican runoff. During a campaign rally in Huntsville, the president said he appreciated how Strange agreed to vote for ObamaCare replacement legislation this summer without asking any favors from him. “I called him up a week ago and I said, ‘You know, I think you’re down by a few points,’” Trump said. “But I’m going to come to Alabama and I’m going to make a speech for

The end is still nigh -- just not as nigh as it was earlier this week, a Doomsday writer says. David Meade, who claimed the world is ending Saturday when a mysterious planet collides with Earth, is now backtracking on the calamitous claim. Meade said the world won´t end on Sept. 23 after all, but instead Saturday will only mark the beginning of a series of catastrophic events to occur over several weeks. “The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending,” he told the Washington Post. “A major part of the world will not be the same

The Obama Presidential Center planned for Jackson Park could be a shot in the arm for the South Side, bringing jobs, economic development and other benefits. But a coalition of activists and residents want those promises put in writing — something the former president himself refused to do just this week. Still, those groups are pressing on, saying they plan to go to the city to get the legal enforcement a written document would provide. The Kenwood-Oakland Community Organization has started the process of getting a community benefits agreement drafted as a city ordinance. Jawanza Malone, executive director of the

White German woman tells ‘Maury’ of her

This model has taken “go big or go home” very seriously. Martina Big, born Martina Adam from Western Germany, appeared on “The Maury Show” on Wednesday to discuss her “transition” to becoming a black woman. Big, a model and flight attendant, said she’s always wanted to look like a Barbie or Pamela Anderson, and has had severe body modifications to look the part, including breast implants (she is a size 32S), a nose job, and liposuction. But this year, Big felt another change was needed: she had three tanning injections in her stomach to change her skin color. “I am now the proud

SINGAPORE: A 25-year-old man was sentenced to six years and two months’ jail and six strokes of the cane on Friday (Sep 22) for multiple offences, including slashing a police officer with a bread knife. The man had been under investigation for posting a nude photo and explicit video of his teenage girlfriend on her Facebook page in March 2016. He had accessed her Facebook and email accounts without her permission and changed her passwords, locking her out of her own accounts. Afraid he would post more compromising photos and videos of her taken while the couple were still together, the

The New York Times’ Sunday Book Review became embroiled in controversy last week when one author published an inaccurate review, Vanity Fair reports. Michelle Goldberg reviewed Vanessa Grigoriadis’s new book, Blurred Lines, which examines the debate about consensual sex on college campuses. Goldberg offers a few pieces of praise, Vanity Fair writes, before giving a harsh critique of the book, even saying that “occasionally (Grigoriadis) makes baffling errors that threaten to undermine her entire book,” according to Vanity Fair. But Grigoriadis defended herself and her book on her Facebook page, saying that Goldberg performed “some of her own (incompetent) journalism here.”
