A tornado ripped through Dallas Sunday night, leaving a trail of heavy damage across the area, including collapsed buildings and downed power lines. The damage, estimated to have stretched 17 miles long, left more than 95,000 people without power. No major injuries have yet to be reported, however, first responders were going door to door in some

Comments:

Apparently, there were at least two. I think I saw one funnel cloud backlit by lightning a few miles away. (I was on my way to the underground parking garage in the basement).

No reported fatalities; no large number of serious injuries.. Tornado - mainly very high winds - went west to east across walnut hill and then royal lane from harry hines to N Central in north dallas - about a 8 mile stretch, Also some damage in Richardson. Some of the most expensive homes in dallas - $1 to $5 million each...

We're 20 miles northwest of Dallas and didn't get the heavy winds, but got a lot of noisy thunder and very heavy rain. I'm grateful for the rain and prayerful for those in the Dallas area who were harmed.

We're about 5 miles west of downtown Fort Worth. An old, rotted out, approx. 100 ft tall pecan across the street from us was knocked down - completely blocked the street.

It is interesting that the tornado is a almost uniquely American weather phenomenon. There are a few dozen tornadoes scattered around the globe, and most notably in Bangladesh there are many and powerful tornadoes, but by comparison, powerful tornadoes are uncommon in Europe and most of Asia. Lucky us. I live in Kansas and have never seen a tornado, although I did clearly hear one last year.

In Texas, a jury ruled against a father who was trying to prevent one of his sons from undergoing a “gender transition” process, according to the Daily Wire. Eleven of the twelve jurors ruled against Jeffrey Younger as he was trying to gain sole custody of his twin sons from his ex-wife Anne Georgulas, who is trying to force one of the boys, James, to take puberty blockers. As a result of the ruling, the father will be forced to agree to the boy’s new “gender identity,” including his female name Luna. Speaking on a podcast after the ruling,

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calf.) issued a statement on Sunday honoring her older brother Thomas D’Alesandro III, the former mayor of Baltimore, Md., who had passed away that day.“Tommy was the finest public servant I have ever known,” Pelosi said. “His life and leadership were a tribute to the Catholic values with which we were raised: faith, family, patriotism. He profoundly believed, as did our parents, that public service was a noble calling and that we all had a responsibility to help others.”D’Alesandro, who was 90 years old, served as mayor of Baltimore from 1967 to 1971.
'C'est moi': Mitt Romney admits

For years, Pierre Delecto’s presence on Twitter largely went unnoticed. Operating a bare-bones account with the handle, “@qaws9876,” the user’s limited activity only revealed an interest in politics — namely supporting Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah). So when “Pierre Delecto” started trending Sunday on the social media platform, people were understandably confused. “Why are we talking about Pierre Delecto,” one person asked. “WTH is a Pierre Delecto & why is everyone going crazy about it?” another wanted to know. On Sunday, Twitter users lost their collective minds when they learned that “Pierre Delecto” wasn’t a bot or a random Romney superfan,

I want my vote back, Mitt. Give me back my vote. In 2012, I voted for this insufferable establishment icon, this inept goof who the Democrats wish every Republican would emulate. Some nights, I wake up sweating and screaming when I relive it in my nightmares. I should have taken my ballot, lit it on fire and flushed it down the Schiffhole. But Romney does serve a purpose, as hard as that is to see through his pathetic antics. His perpetual groveling for approval – including, hilariously, from Donald Trump himself who just broke him right in front of our eyes over the Secretary of State gig – is so shameful

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has been caught using the pseudonym “Pierre Delecto” to defend his own honor on Twitter.Everything about this story says so much about Mitt Romney: his pettiness, his insecurity, his lack of character, honesty, and decency, starting with how it all unraveled: Romney doing business with the establishment media — in this case, the far-left Atlantic and activist-reporter, McKay Coppins, who was originally hired at BuzzFeed to destroy Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.Back in 2011, Coppins was the affirmative-action hire of all affirmative-action hires. Determined to win Barack Obama a second term, BuzzFeed knew it needed a left-wing Mormon (or a “media-approved Mormon,”

President Trump lashed out at Mitt Romney saying Democrats don’t have to deal with backstabbers like he does after the former Massachusetts governor admitted he was behind a bogus Twitter account used to slam the administration.“I think (Democrats) are lousy politicians. But two things they have — they’re vicious and they stick together. They don’t have Mitt Romney in their midst, they don’t have people like that,” Trump said Monday.Donald Trump Jr. also took a swipe at the Utah senator, saying Romney lacked the courage to win the presidency.“If Mitt Romney had any guts the would would take on media directly rather than with a fake twitter account,

Drudge leaves Conservatives, follows Fox down the liberal rabbit hole 33 replies

The Drudge Report seems to have lost its conservative-leaning. More and more the headline aggregator, whose claim to fame was Monica Lewinsky’s semen-stained blue dress, is highlighting articles that are anti-Trump, anti-Republican, and pro-Impeachment. It has been an obvious trend during the Trump Presidency that is accelerating as we get closer to the House Impeachment farce and the 2020 election. Drudge is increasingly anti-Trump. Top headline this morning, for example: “Romney Downloads on Trump: May vote to Remove!” in a glaring center headline.The article, from the known ultra-liberal magazine The Atlantic, could not be more open in its bias against the President.

Joe Biden claims he wants to take Trump behind the gym and beat him up. Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) jokes that she would like to go into an elevator with him and see Trump never come out alive. Robert De Niro has exhausted the ways in which he dreams of punching Trump out and the intonations in which he yells to audiences, “F—k Trump!” The humanists and social justice warriors of Hollywood, from Madonna to Johnny Depp, cannot agree whether their elected president should be beheaded, blown up, stabbed, shot, or incinerated. All the Democratic would-be presidential nominees agree that Trump is the worst something-or-other in history—from human being to mere president.

Procter & Gamble’s Always feminine hygiene brand announced it is removing feminine symbols from its packaging in the name of inclusivity. “For over 35 years Always has championed girls and women, and we will continue to do so,” the company said in a statement to The Independent. “We’re also committed to diversity and inclusion, and after hearing from many people across genders and age groups, we realized that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female.” The decision comes after transgender activists criticized the company for including the feminine Venus symbol on its packaging.

CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin voiced regret on Monday for how he covered the Hillary Clinton email scandal during her failed 2016 presidential run, saying in hindsight that he “should have been talking about other issues.” Toobin made the comments while responding to Friday’s news on the Justice Department finally concluding their investigation into the Clinton email matter and found no “systemic” effort from the former secretary of state to flout laws protecting classified information. “This is also a story about the news media, about how much time we spent on that, and that’s something that I have felt a great deal of personal responsibility for,” Toobin told CNN’s New Day.
