A catastrophic tornado has ripped through Missouri's capital, according to the National Weather Service. The 'violent tornado' was confirmed in Jefferson City around 11.43pm Wednesday night. Jefferson City took a direct hit by the storm and there are several unconfirmed reports of residents hearing 'mass casualties' over their scanners. Three deaths in Missouri have been confirmed, the result of a tornado earlier in the day, but there is no word yet on possible fatalities in the capital. Police Lt. David Williams said officers have received multiple calls of people being trapped in their homes and 20 people have been rescued by emergency workers in Jefferson City.

Devastating, just devastating. Please pray for the people of Jefferson City.

Certainly this is a bad thing, and if it was one of your loved ones killed, that is as bad as it gets. If it was your home or business destroyed, that is as bad as it gets. But this looks like a few homes and businesses and a few people killed. As bad as that is, it is still, fortunately, not as bad as it can be at times. But the Joplin tornado killed 150+ people and leveled everything in a 1/4 mile wide swath for miles. THAT was catastrophic. This is far, far less serious. The media needs to avoid using the most extreme limits of the language for any and all serious events, they have really made it impossible to trust their judgment, they always go overboard. This was about 100 miles east of us. We had strong storms here, but no tornadoes in our area. Just luck of the springtime draw in the Midwest. unfortunately. Yes, serious. Yes, a bad thing. But hardly catastrophic.

Used to be, mass casualty events meant at least 10 or more deaths attributed to whatever happened to cause the tragedies. Now we have the media whipping up hysterics where none are needed. RIP to the ones who were killed, and may God comfort their families in this time of trial.

As of one hour ago, local news are reporting 20 injured, no deaths in Jefferson City. A few dozen homes and businesses destroyed and damaged. Three killed in a different location in south western Missouri. Yes bad, but still, on the rational measure of tornadoes, this is pretty minimal. It can, and has been, far worse. Best wishes for the folks who had homes and business damaged, a and sincere condolences for the dead. These storms are so unpredictable in their severity and where they might spit out a tornado, and how strong or durable it might be.

I guess it depends on where you live when you consider the severity of an occurrence. I live in Jefferson City. At this time, they're saying the tornado was an EF3 so, no, not nearly as bad as Joplin but considerably more severe than some strong winds. Among other things, most of an apartment complex was destroyed, along with several historical homes. We have many, many families displaced and yes, several businesses completely destroyed. We were already dealing with flooding north of town so this definitely adds to the mess. We appreciate those who continue to pray for our town and we are thankful that there was no loss of life.

It is wonderful, #9, that there was no loss of life in Jeff City. Certainly a very bad thing to have people injured and good bit of property destroyed. Glad that people apparently sought effective shelter in time. Buildings can be replaced.

The Forgotten Armenian Genocide of 1019 AD 6 replies

Last April 24 was Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day. Millions of Armenians around the world remembered how the Islamic Ottoman Empire killed -- often cruelly and out of religious hatred -- some 1.5 million of their ancestors during World War I. Ironically, most people, including most Armenians, are unaware that the first genocide of Christian Armenians at the hands of Muslim Turks did not occur in the twentieth century; rather it began in 1019 -- exactly one thousand years ago this year -- when Turks first began to pour into and transform a then much larger Armenia

The ruthless Saudi government is beheading so many people it needs to recruit a deadly new squad of sword-wielding executioners. The news comes after it slaughtered 37 people in one bloody day last week meaning it is now tipped to kill a record number of its citizens in 2019. The Sharia law-run state has advertised for eight new executioners to handle the projected rise in brutal public beheadings.

Ami Horowitz, the investigatory film maker who often exposes campus madness, has produced a video that ought to terrify anyone familiar with the history of Weimar Germany. Then, as now, universities were among the leaders in whipping up Jew-hatred and actually persecuting Jews. One of the neglected aspects of the origins of the Holocaust is that the purge of Jews from Germany’s famous universities opened up new career possibilities for those faculty and students who remained once their institutions were Judenrein. We are not (yet) at the point of expelling Jews from faculties and student bodies,

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Saturday called for governments to play a greater role in regulating the Internet, citing four areas where he believes better rules are needed. Zuckerberg said new regulations are needed to protect society from harmful content, ensure election integrity, protect people’s privacy and to guarantee data portability. Facebook has faced a torrent of public criticism over its handling of Russian intervention in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and its policies on hate speech that many governments and users consider too lax.

Classic films now face the wrath of perpetually enraged social justice warriors. Last weekend’s "Watters World" on Fox News Channel analyzed the impact of this politically correct phenomenon. Exhibit A was Mel Brooks’ “Blazing Saddles,” the single funniest motion picture ever committed to celluloid. Jesse Watters’ guest, Cathy Areu, publisher of Catalina Magazine, responded to a clip of the comedy-Western in which Brooks himself portrays a Yiddish speaking American Indian chief. After securing safe passage for a family of black pioneers rolling West in their stagecoach, the feather-headdress-clad Indian bids them, “auf wiedersehen.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Tuesday castigated supporters of President Donald Trump by claiming America's problem with ignorance is "pervasive." Omar appeared on the Nation’s "Next Left" podcast with host John Nichols to discuss various issues, including the intelligence of Trump supporters. "So suddenly you’re elected, and you had this teaching moment. It strikes me that, in watching you, you are conscious of teaching moments and of that opportunity to say something that might cause people to think differently about what’s going on," Nichols said. Omar said U.S. voters "have a misconception" about refugees and the process they face getting into the United States.

Nobody likes a loser who can’t accept defeat. Hillary Clinton apparently can’t understand that American voters just didn’t like her. She’s still reenacting the 2016 presidential campaign in her mind and finding new ways to blame us all for her loss. Now, the failed Democratic nominee brought her blame game to new levels by complaining about being told she shouldn’t complain. She claims people are telling her to shut down her blame game tour because she is a woman and that nobody wants a male loser to shut his pie hole.

Barack Obama is literally more popular than Jesus among Democrats. Unfortunately, neither the former president nor any of the party’s 23 candidates currently seeking the 2020 nomination know quite what to do with that information. Of course, before any serious endorsement conversation can commence, Obama has to finish his book (between rounds of golf and raising millions for his foundation). The writing has been going more slowly than he’d expected, and according to several people who have spoken with him, the 44th president is feeling competitive with his wife, whose own book, Becoming, was the biggest release of 2018 and is on track to be the best-selling memoir in history.
