Hurricane Michael is so bad
that 18 Waffle Houses are closing
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

Waffle House restaurants don’t close unless absolutely necessary — so the shuttering of 18 Florida locations ahead of Hurricane Michael speaks volumes about the severity of the storm. “We have closed these restaurants yesterday so our employees can be safe as Hurricane Michael comes on shore,” Waffle House spokesperson Pat Warner confirmed to Fox News. “We have staged people and resources outside of the strike zone to come into the area after the storm passes. We will assess the damage and begin to reopen the restaurants as soon as it is safe to do so.”

Confirmation bias: Brett Kavanaugh and
the major media´s worst moment

For all the recent talk about facts versus “fake news,” telling the truth, and recapturing the public´s trust in the era of President Trump, some of our most important newsrooms blew it when it mattered most. Worse still, some demonstrated an immediate willingness to trade this industry´s already badly battered reputation for a political victory. We are now at the unsuccessful conclusion of a four-week-long effort by certain media organizations to prove Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is a violent sexual predator and a lying alcoholic. The reckless and grossly irresponsible scramble

The cult of Beto

There is no way Robert Francis O´Rourke, alias "Beto," a.k.a. the no-doubt gleaming future of the Democratic Party is as delusional about his prospects for success as his followers. That would be impossible. The Texas congressman is your average 46-year-old liberal failson politico, the grandson of a secretary of the Navy, the son of a judge, a hanger-on in his party who graduated from playing in an amazingly bad hardcore punk band to a seat on the El Paso City Council. After that, he challenged Rep. Silvestre Reyes,

The San Francisco school board’s new president broke with protocol Tuesday night by deciding to skip the Pledge of Allegiance before a meeting, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. In its place, Steven Cook recited a quote from the poet Maya Angelou: “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” Cook told The Chronicle he chose not to enforce the pledge because of his disappointment with the political climate. He said the Trump administration “has been attacking our liberties.”

Dem senator Heitkamp slams Clinton
call to abandon civility with GOP

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s incendiary suggestion this week that liberals "cannot be civil" with Republicans any longer is unproductive and simply "ridiculous," a top Democratic senator said Wednesday. The stark repudiation of Clinton´s comments by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a vulnerable red-state Democrat seeking re-election this year, comes as Republicans have lined up in recent days to criticize Democrats´ fiery rhetoric amid the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday. “That’

WASHINGTON – Jeb Bush wasn’t invited to niece Barbara Bush’s surprise weekend wedding, it was revealed Wednesday. Former first lady Laura Bush said the former Florida governor and failed presidential candidate didn’t make the cut for the small-scale, and short notice, Oct. 7 nuptials — in which her eldest daughter with former President George W. Bush married actor Craig Coyne. “Well, I think Barbara just kept it a secret, plus so few people were invited,” the former FLOTUS told journalist Cokie Roberts, who interviewed her on stage at an event in Washington, DC. “It was just our family and Craig’s

Austin, Texas — With an unassuming air and a black Toyota Tundra he says was “the first new vehicle I’ve ever purchased,” Beto O’Rourke has campaigned thousands of miles across Texas and risen to national prominence on a workaday image that aligns with his politics, but not his personal finances. The son of a onetime Republican county judge and a longtime furniture store owner, the Democratic congressman from El Paso married into the family of one of his hometown’s most prominent developers and has assembled real estate investments worth millions.

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered an operation to lure Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia from his home in Virginia and then detain him, according to U.S. intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plan. The intelligence, described by U.S. officials familiar with it, is another piece of evidence implicating the Saudi regime in Khashoggi’s disappearance last week after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Turkish officials say that a Saudi security team lay in wait for the journalist and killed him.Khashoggi was a prominent critic of the

Hispanic Caucus chair rips request

Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.) is pushing back against House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy´s (R-Calif.) recently proposed legislation aimed at fully funding a wall along the southern border. Lujan Grisham, who is running for governor of New Mexico, blasted the legislation, arguing it would be economically irresponsible to allocate funds toward the project — a top priority for President Trump. “Despite evidence showing the negative economic and environmental impact of Trump’s border wall and overwhelming opposition by border communities and national security experts, Republicans in Congress continue to use the border wall as a political ploy to

Social Security checks to rise?
A look at past adjustments

The Social Security Administration will tell retirees on Thursday how much of a bump to expect in their checks next year, and some experts project it could be the biggest in years. The Senior Citizens League, a nonpartisan senior advocacy organization, forecasts benefits will jump by 2.8 percent in 2019 – which would be the largest increase in seven years. That is slightly down from the group’s previous forecast of 3 percent, but would still boost the average beneficiary’s check by $39 per month – and raise the current maximum benefit collected by someone who retires at full retirement age

Ratings: Taylor Swift Can’t Save AMAs
From Hitting New All-Time Low

ABC’s “AMAs” set a new record low in TV ratings on Tuesday, despite Taylor Swift opening the show with a performance and closing it by clutching the evening’s top award. The “American Music Awards” settled for a 1.8 rating this year among adults 18-49, which is the demographic most attractive to advertisers. It had a 2.4 in 2017 when the special aired on a Sunday in November. Last year’s 2.4 tied the previous record-low set by the 2016 version. Here are the (mostly) comparable 2017 AMAs ratings. That one didn’t do great either, but its Nielsen returns were 25 percent



The Most Important Movie

It’s here. Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer debuts in theaters nationwide on October 12. I do believe this groundbreaking film by indie producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney is the most important movie in America right now — a true-life saga of good vs. evil, deadly medical malpractice, systemic government malfeasance, and cultural apathy toward the most vulnerable members of our society. I first reported on this real-life horror story nearly eight years ago, but you’ve probably not heard or read a word about Gosnell in the mainstream press, TV news, or online.

Kanye West serves as an example of the intolerance to varying opinion on the left, and how they react when people of color escape the Democratic plantation. CNN commentator Bakari Sellers responded to the rapper’s scheduled meeting with President Donald Trump on Thursday to discuss prison reform and job opportunities for ex-cons by effectively calling West ignorant. (Video) “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read,” Sellers told CNN host Don Lemon. West is a de facto pied piper, showing other black Americans that they too can leave the Democratic Party and the left knows full well how crippling

Major technology companies saw their shares fall sharply Wednesday, leading a broad market selloff that dragged the Dow more than 800 points lower. The S&P 500 Information Technology sector was down 4.77 percent, marking its worst day in seven years. It was also the worst performer among all 11 S&P sectors. Meanwhile, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite dropped 4.08 percent, its steepest loss since June 24, 2016. Amazon lost nearly 6.2 percent of its value in the selloff. The stock has now entered correction territory – defined as a 10 percent drop from their 52-week high. The e-commerce giant is down

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Frontier Airlines said a woman had to be escorted off a flight bound for Cleveland Tuesday night due to a squirrel. Frontier said a passenger boarded Flight 1612 in Orlando, saying the squirrel was an emotional support animal. The airline said the passenger noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal, but it was not indicated the animal was a squirrel. Frontier said "rodents, including squirrels are not allowed" on its flights. The passenger was advised of the policy and asked to get off the plane. The airline said when she refused




Kavanaugh backs Trump administration

Washington - Newly seated Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke up Wednesday in defense of the Trump administration’s view that legal immigrants with criminal records must be arrested and held for deportation, even years after they were convicted and completed their sentences. At issue is a federal law that calls for mandatory detention and possible deportation for “criminal aliens,” including legal immigrants convicted of crimes ranging from violent felonies to simple drug possession. The law says the Homeland Security secretary “shall take into custody any alien” with a criminal record that could lead to deportation “when the alien

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. on Wednesday referred more than a dozen judicial misconduct complaints filed recently against Brett M. Kavanaugh to a federal appeals court in Colorado. The 15 complaints, related to statements Kavanaugh made during his Senate confirmation hearings, were initially filed with the federal appeals court in Washington, where Kavanaugh served for the last 12 years before his confirmation Saturday to the Supreme Court. The allegations center on whether Kavanaugh was dishonest and lacked judicial temperament during his Senate testimony, according to people familiar with the

A new book titled "Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape" purports to show that Americans are more politically alike than they are different, that a vast majority of Americans reject "PC culture," and that fewer people have truly radical political beliefs than it may seem. The Atlantic reports that the book is based on a study conducted by More in Common, an organization charged with bringing British citizens together in the wake of MP Jo Cox´s murder at the hands of a pro-Brexit extremist. The study involved more than 8,000 Americans and had some surprising results. "According to

The former assistant, Nicolas De-Meyer, was accused of stealing more than $1.2 million in high-end wine from the collection of his former boss, David M. Solomon, who is now the chief executive of Goldman Sachs.

CNN is being accused of racism after commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer bashed rapper Kanye West over his support for Trump on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, going so far as to call him a “token negro.” “Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” CNN commentator Bakari Sellers said, in reference to an old Chris Rock bit. CNN’s Tara Setmayer went even further, calling Kanye West a “an attention whore like the president.” “He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson—he’s the token Negro of the Trump Administration?” she also said.

As we reported earlier today Rod Rosenstein is one of the most conflicted and corrupt officials in US history. According to multiple reports, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein has given a verbal resignation to Chief of Staff John Kelly following an explosive NYT report he wanted to wear a wire and oust Trump from office. Last week, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC), who previously filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein, called for the Deputy Attorney General to appear before Congress under oath this week. But today Rosenstein notified Congress he will not turn over the subpoenaed memos

Senate Republicans turned back a Democratic bid Wednesday to kill President Trump’s plan to expand the sale of health plans that fall short of Obamacare’s rules, saying Americans who buy insurance on their own need more options, not fewer. Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican, sided with Democrats in the 50-50 vote, though the resolution needed a majority to advance. Its defeat was never in doubt, really, though the vote allowed Democrats to paint Republicans as “junk plan” peddlers who don’t care about people with preexisting conditions who might pay more for robust coverage, as healthier people who cross-subsidize their costs

Kavanaugh May Change Election Map

This is impetuous, but I think the electoral map has changed with the Kavanaugh decision. The Democrats avoided direct confrontation and tried to sandbag the nominee by a late allegation of sexual assault from 30 years before. They gambled that whipping up post-Weinstein militant-feminist support would induce the president to say something outrageous that would split his party and drench him in another momentary shower of confected outrage, such as during the partial migration ban, the Charlottesville imputations of softness toward Nazis and the Klan, the Helsinki comments, and the detention of abandoned minors of illegal immigrants at the southern borders.
