Via Reddit_The Donald, the headline of the day: UN globalists are on suicide watch after President Trump´s speech If you are wondering why Hillary´s speechwriters called us a basket of deplorables, now you know why. They fear President Trump. (Snip) Now the globalists -- the men without a country or a conscience -- are in a panic. Their Russian conspiracy is cracking. Their immoral espionage on Candidate Trump is showing. Their hold on Washington is slipping. President Trump today gave a great speech to the United Nations -- one that proves beyond a doubt that he is the leader of the free world. We live in a

SANTA ROSA Wildfires driven by powerful winds tore through Northern California’s famed wine country Monday, killing at least 10, leveling neighborhoods and forcing residents to grab what they could and flee from fast-moving walls of flames. Two huge fires in Sonoma and Napa counties were part of a series of blazes that raged across the north state, from Yuba and Nevada counties in the east to Mendocino and Lake counties in the west. Cal Fire Chief Ken Pimlott said bone-dry conditions and high winds combined to whip sparks into firestorms. (Snip) In the early morning hours Monday, the 30,000-acre Tubbs fire raced down the
Almost one week on from the Las Vegas shootings, investigators are now coming around to the idea that killer Stephen Paddock may have have been mentally ill, insiders have revealed. On Wednesday FBI insiders said investigators believed Paddock may have been in ´mental or physical anguish´ based on information given by his girlfriend. But they didn´t believe that his mental situation had deteriorated to the point of planning and executing mass murder. Now, however, police insiders say that some investigators increasingly believe he was in the grip of a severe mental illness - and that it had been building for
The gunman who attacked a country-music concert in Las Vegas shot a security guard in the hotel before beginning his assault on the concertgoers, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Monday, a significant change to the timeline of the massacre that officials had previously given to the public. Officials had previously said that gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos after Paddock had started shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country-music festival from his 32nd-floor hotel suite on Oct. 1. Officials had previously credited Campos, who was shot in the leg, with stopping the 10-minute
The gunman who killed 58 people in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history targeted aviation fuel tanks, stockpiled his car with explosives and had personal protection gear as part of an escape plan, the Clark County sheriff said Monday. Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a news conference that they still have not pinpointed the shooter´s motive behind his decision to fire on a concert crowd of 22,000 in Las Vegas on Oct. 1 from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino. There´s still no evidence Stephen Craig Paddock was motivated by ideology, and there´s no evidence
Visiting the United States in 1831, when Andrew Jackson was president, Alexis de Tocqueville was appalled by the “vulgarity and mediocrity” of American politics. After meeting Jackson, Tocqueville concluded that the low tone of American society started at the top. In Tocqueville’s estimation, Jackson was “a man of violent character and middling capacity.” Worse, he seemed to have no talent for politics: he rode “roughshod over his personal enemies” in a way no president had done and treated members of Congress with disdain. “Nothing in all the course of his career had ever proved that he had the requisite qualities
A fire early Monday forced the evacuation of Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa only hours after the completion of the PGA Tour´s season-opening Safeway Open. Mitch Cosentino, a prominent winemaker in the Napa Valley, an avid golfer and friend to many on the PGA Tour, posted this on his Facebook page about 1:30 a.m. (PDT): SILVERADO COUNTRY CLUB IS IN DANGER. THE FIRES HAVE COME DOWN PAST William Hill Winery. Both sides of Hardman Rd are burning across from the driving range at the Country Club. This has passed thru a very good Cab Sauv vineyard just north of the 5th
Las Vegas - He was a nocturnal creature who gambled all night and slept all day. He took Valium at times for anxiousness, and had the doctor who prescribed it to him on retainer. He wagered up to a million dollars a night, but wandered around glitzy Las Vegas casinos in sweatpants and flip-flops, and carried his own drink into the high rollers´ area because he didn´t want to tip the waitresses too much.This was Stephen Paddock as he saw himself four years before he opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers,(Snip)The details are contained in a 97-page court deposition obtained
Napa County endured a hellacious night of wind-fed wildfires that prompted scores of neighborhood evacuations in Napa and Calistoga, sending hundreds of people to shelters and closing all public schools in Napa County, including Napa Valley College, on Monday. Fanned by strong wind gusts, major fires burned all night in the Atlas Peak and Partrick Road areas, as well as on the outskirts of Calistoga, with flames lighting up ridgelines, dumping acrid smoke and ash into the Napa Valley. Cal Fire said Monday that the Tubbs Fire, that started in Calistoga and burned into Sonoma County, has burned 25,000 acres as of
A swarm of wildfires ripped through the North Bay on Monday, killing one resident, injuring scores of others, destroying hundreds of homes and businesses and forcing tens of thousands to flee. The blazes turned wide swaths of the Wine Country into wastelands of twisted metal and ash as firefighters sought to contain flames super-charged by powerful winds. (Snip)One of the most aggressive fires roared in the Atlas Peak area of Napa County, a famed winemaking spot northeast of the city of Napa and the Silverado Trail where at least 50 structures were leveled. Another fire burned north of Carneros, and
Things are getting a little “Real Housewives” around the White House. (Snip) Here’s a breakdown: To promote her new book, “Raising Trump,” about parenting Trump’s three eldest children, Ivana Trump gave a Monday interview to “Good Morning America” in which she made some comments sure to privately raise the hackles of the woman currently occupying the role of Wife of Donald. “I’m basically first Trump wife. Okay?” Ivana Trump said. “I’m first lady.” She offered faux sympathy for Melania Trump, saying “I think for her to be in Washington must be terrible.”
Today many Americans will be celebrating Columbus Day. Many others will instead be commemorating something they call Indigenous Peoples Day. Which camp you fall in largely hinges on whether or not you think Christopher Columbus was a big fat jerk. To the best of my discernment, Indigenous Peoples Day exists for those who think it’s a noble idea to honor those who were too technologically backward to defend their own land. Perhaps its first emergence as a counter-celebration to Columbus Day happened in South Dakota, which in 1990 decided to host Native American Day on the second Monday of October. Two
Put this in the ‘Things Moonbats Do That Backfire‘ folder. The day after California Governor Jerry Brown signs a bill that prevents local police notifying ICE of illegal alien arrests ICE notifies California their new law forces workplace raids as enforcement actions: SB54 will negatively impact ICE operations in California by nearly eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state, voiding the delegated authority that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has under the 287g program, and prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees. ICE will have no choice but to conduct
Colin Kaepernick, the former 49ers quarterback who started the protest of kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games, told CBS he´ll stand during the anthem if given a chance to play in the NFL again. The former quarterback, who has not yet been signed this season, spoke to CBS sports off camera. CBS reporter Jason LaCanfora says Kaepernick is working out daily at a sports facility in New Jersey with the expectation or hope that a NFL team will sign him.
Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones has had it with anthem protests. Just how tired of it is he? Tired enough that Jones has now publicly said that if his team doesn’t respect the flag, they’re not going to play. Jones was asked by Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, about two Cowboys players who raised their fists at the end of the anthem. Jones said he did not see the raised fists. But then, Jones made a definitive statement about how he wants to see his team to handle the anthem from now on. According to Pro Football Talk, Jones
Federal disability law requires Plano-based Cinemark and other movie theaters to provide specialized interpreters to patrons who are deaf and blind, an appeals court said Friday. The Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Cinemark, the nation´s third-largest movie chain, in a case involving a Pennsylvania man who wanted to see the 2014 movie Gone Girl and asked a Cinemark theater in Pittsburgh to supply a "tactile interpreter." The theater denied his request. The plaintiff, Paul McGann, is a movie enthusiast who reads American Sign Language through touch. He uses a method of tactile interpretation
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted Sunday that he left the Indianapolis Colts game against the San Francisco 49ers because of protests during the national anthem. It wasn´t clear whether any Colts players were involved in a protest. Also Sunday, Colin Kaepernick said he would stand for the national anthem should he have the opportunity to play again in the NFL. Kaepernick sat for the anthem, then knelt, last season, sparking national debate over social awareness by NFL players and respect for the flag and national anthem.
Washington — Never mind the disease and slavery wrought by Christopher Columbus´ voyage — or the fact that he didn´t actually "discover" the New World. President Donald Trump´s first presidential proclamation of Columbus Day gave only high praise to the 15th century explorer, a stark contrast to the proclamation made by President Barack Obama one year earlier. "The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation," Trump said in his proclamation. "Therefore, on Columbus Day, we
Washington - Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a veteran California Democrat, said Monday that she´s running for another term. The 84-year-old took to Twitter to declare that "I´m all in." "I am running for re-election to the Senate. Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to health care," Feinstein said. She would be running for her fifth full term. She joined the Senate in 1992 after winning a special election. She had a serious challenge in 1994 from wealthy GOP Rep. Michael Huffington but has cruised since. On Sunday, Feinstein told NBC´s "Meet the Press" that "I´m ready for a good fight.
A speeding bicyclist has taken away something dear to Virginia Pearsall. “I can’t feel safe on the trail anymore,” the 67-year-old Spokane woman said on Friday, walking with a slight limp and her left arm in a sling. The Spokane River Centennial Trail running through Kendall Yards was a major attraction for Pearsall and her husband to move into the development overlooking the Spokane River Gorge. “I walk the trail almost every day,” she said Friday. “Or at least I did.” On Sept. 22, Pearsall was walking near Trail Milepost 24 at Nettleton Street with her sister when she heard someone behind her yell,
LAS VEGAS — Stephen Paddock was a contradiction: a gambler who took no chances. A man with houses everywhere who did not really live in any of them. Someone who liked the high life of casinos but drove a nondescript minivan and dressed casually, even sloppily, in flip-flops and sweatsuits. He did not use Facebook or Twitter, but spent the past 25 years staring at screens of video poker machines. Mr. Paddock, a former postal worker and tax auditor, lived an intensely private, unsocial life that exploded into public view on Sunday, when he killed 58 people at a country music
It isn’t enough for California to contemplate its own state-run single payer health care system that would require, at a minimum, tripling the state budget. Now a lawmaker wants to have the state ban gasoline-powered cars by the year 2040. I certainly hope California follows through and tries this. If nothing else, it will provide wonderful black market opportunities. Think of all the meth labs that will convert to mini-refineries, not to mention the smuggling. It is doubtful we can legally confiscate existing cars, so look for California’s rolling stock to become the equivalent of all those 57 Chevys and
Fashion designer Donna Karan is standing by Harvey Weinstein and has suggested his alleged victims may have been ´asking for it´ by the way the women act and dress. During a red carpet interview at the CinéFashion Film Awards on Sunday, the DKNY creator was asked to weigh in on the scandal hours after the disgraced film mogul was fired from his company. (Snip) Karan´s comments are striking as a legend in the fashion world and having designed women´s clothing for decades. Her comments come as many of Weinstein´s former friends, including Judi Dench and Meryl Streep, have denounced the producer based
Why now? That was the first question many were asking this weekend after explosive revelations came to light about Harvey Weinstein, one of Hollywood´s most powerful men, and decades of alleged sexual harassment on his part.First, it was a question about Hollywood, where tales about Weinstein and his behavior with women had circulated for years, yet news outlets had been unable to nail down the story. But it also fed into a broader question, one that touched on the recent fates of Bill Cosby, the late Roger Ailes, and Bill O´Reilly — all rich and hugely powerful men brought down,
Actress Meryl Streep has condemned Harvey Weinstein’s “abuse of power,” four days after the New York Times published reports alleging that the Hollywood film mogul committed decades of sexual harassment against young women. In a statement published Monday by the Huffington Post, Streep called the claims against the embattled film boss “inexcusable” and called the women who made the allegations “heroes.” “The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported. The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes,” the
