Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 with 140 mph winds as of early Saturday, is not expected to make landfall in Florida and instead will track up the coastline, possibly slamming into the Carolinas late Wednesday. Earlier projections had it hitting Florida head on as early as Monday. Areas all along the coast still are bracing for storm surge, heavy rain and dangerous, gusty winds. Other forecasts have the storm not making landfall at all in the U.S. A high-pressure system in the Atlantic is helping push the storm north. If Dorian remains farther off shore, parts of Florida may see only up to 10 inches of rain, significantly lower than earlier forecasts.

Leftists foiled again by Trump. He must have nuked the storm so it wouldn’t hit Mar a lago. We all know he controls the weather. He’s the guy making these storms, he says where they go.

This will upset our liberal friends. DJT has the power to redirect hurricanes. You know he is going to say something to the haters that were hoping for destruction in Florida.

A day or two out, the track forecast is fairly reliable. They had Irma right up my tail 3 days out and they were really only off by 50 miles. That said, we are more than a day or two out, and if I were in NE Florida I wouldn't tear down the plywood yet.

It is still shown tracking close to the coast where it can still do considerable damage. I hope and pray that it turns to the NE sooner an goes farther out to sea.

Talk about irony! I've spoken with many people who were reluctant to live in the west for fear of earthquakes, and many in the west shudder at the thought of hurricanes and tornadoes in the east. The home we just sold was in the California desert just a few miles from the epicenter of the 7.1 earthquake - just 2 weeks before escrow closed. We moved to North Carolina and our new home is due to close just a week after the hurricane. How many people are fortunate enough to experience two such dissimilar disasters in the same year? I imagine if we moved to Wyoming the Yellowstone super volcano would erupt!

I live in Charleston, SC and Dorian is now headed our way, by Thursday, though expected to drop to Cat 2 and may not even hit the coast but veer north without ever touching land. Meanwhile, my worry wort husband is freaking out and wants to start boarding up the windows today. We evacuated for Florence last year and didn’t even get a fallen branch or a puddle in the street. Maybe I’ll slip him some Xanax.

I heard a funny one yesterday. When Jim Cantore checks into your hotel, your all going to die! Last year's hurricane was supposed to hit the Jacksonville area and literally, at the last second the storm jogged to the right, just enough to spare the area the full brunt of the storm. I keep an eye on projections, but dont light my hair on fire until 24 hours in advance. And then I hold my breath.

I was predicting this trend two days ago. You could see that every successive set of path predictions had it curving farther "right" - north and east, from the original predictions to cross Florida and hit New Orleans. Every 12 hrs, it was shown to be curving farther north and east. That trend has continued as the high pressure system has moved in. Think of the high as a hill and you are rolling a ball, the ball will go straight, until it gets to the hill, and it will roll off to the side as it is deflected. Putters know this phenomena exactly. Still, there will be damage along the coast, and a good bit of rain, as it moves along. Could be flooding plus beach erosion.

It irritates me that so many in the media and on the left seem to be cheering for this storm to be something significant, as though proving global warming is more important than the loss of property and life as well as misfortune of so many of their countrymen. Shame on these people!

Common gumption would dictate that colleges and universities foster environments that promote “free and open inquiry in all matters,” and guarantee “the broadest possible latitude to speak, write, listen, challenge, and learn.” Too many higher education administrators today, however, are afraid to endorse such principles, principles clearly articulated in what is known as the “Chicago Statement.” These administrators have allowed their institutions to become ideological gulags, where speech codes limit discourse, certain topics are off limits, and invited speakers must pass litmus tests. Entire academic disciplines, such as political science, education, sociology and others, are in pedagogical and ideological lockstep. It is

Move over, Nancy Pelosi. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the “squad” of freshmen women of color are emerging as new stars of Republican attacks against Democrats running for Congress. The tone is being set from the top as President Donald Trump bashes the four squad members with a strategy Republicans are quick to mimic, modeled on his own rise to the White House. Trump set a new standard in 2016, making some Republicans uneasy, by taunting rivals and branding them with exaggerated nicknames intended to make them unelectable. The GOP is embracing the tactic for 2020. A first test will be a Sept. 10 special election in North Carolina,

Right to work is a very simple concept. It simply means that no worker should be compelled to join or pay dues to a union just to get or keep a job. Twenty-seven states have now enacted and implemented right-to-work laws, with five joining in the last eight years. And on June 27 of last year, the U.S Supreme Court handed down one of the most significant employee rights legal victories in the history of the right-to-work movement with the Janus decision, which ended the forced payment of union dues or fees for millions of government workers nationwide. Unfortunately, there are more private sector American workers in the 23 non-right-to-work states and

At least four state health departments, hundreds of Planned Parenthood clinics and dozens of independent providers have withdrawn from the more than $250 million Title X program. Some have literally had to box up and return unused supplies bought with a government discount. They’re leaning on emergency funds, private donations and in some instances, state assistance.

Explorer and aviator Richard E. Byrd noted how surprising it is, “approaching the final enlightenment, how little one really has to know or feel sure about...” [Alone, 1938]. Tardiness in discerning first and final things points to a common weakness among intellectuals, leaders and movers of society, namely a radical detachment from the spiritual side of human life, with a total disregard for the consequences in the here and now, let alone the before and hereafter. Compensating for that spiritual blindness with brain-powered “enlightenment” requires an impossible act: the substitution of self for God, an act that mostly leads to misery, not progress. For it feeds an egomania, especially

"The check's in the mail" is a promise that payment's been sent even if it hasn't. It's a stalling tactic to avoid pressure from creditors, from those expecting payment. That's the scam our government is running on the American people today, a ruse to tamp down expectations of justice. We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This dossier was used to start a counterintelligence operation to plant spies in Trump's campaign, to get a special counsel to impeach the president.

Some told him it was too risky, but Biden said he brushed off their concerns. “We can lose a vice president,” he said. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” The Navy captain, Biden recalled Friday night, had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade,
