Resilient flag shredded by Florence off NC
coast ‘represents who we are as America’

McClatchy, by Matthew Martinez

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/14/2018 4:20:00 PM

Richard Neal, the owner of a bed-and-breakfast 32 miles off the coast of North Carolina in old Coast Guard tower, says he fielded several angry calls from veterans as Hurricane Florence approached. That’s because his B&B at Frying Pan Tower is also the home of one of the many Explore.org live cams that have been documenting the storm as it rumbled toward the Carolina coast. And also because, that live footage at times has shown the tower’s American flag, being shredded by the devastating rain and wind the storm is bringing with it. “They told me, ‘this is disrespectful,’ and

On the shore dimly seen,
through the mists of the deep,
Where the foes haughty host
in dread silence reposes;
What is that which the breeze,
o´er the towering steep,
as it fitfully blows,
half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning´s first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream.
´Tis the star-spangled banner! O long may it wave o´er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I agree. Ever see what one of those battle standards looked like in 1865? I´d call those color bearers pretty patriotic.

Leftists always insist that their proposals for socialism will be nothing like what´s found in communist hellholes way down the rapids to the falls. But somehow, the opening ideas are always the same. So here we have a well-meaning Democratic candidate for president in 2020, entrepreneur Andrew Wang, who´s proposing an idea that´s already being implemented in China and Venezuela. According to the Daily Caller: New York entrepreneur and Democratic 2020 candidate Andrew Yang wants to implement a system in which a government-run mobile app rewards Americans with “digital social credits” (DSCs) for good behavior. Americans would receive DSCs under

President Trump joins California officials as they tour the destruction left in the wake of the deadly wildfires. On Saturday, the president arrived in the Northern California town of Paradise, and surveyed the damage caused by the devastating Camp Fire. (Photo) He was joined by outgoing Governor Jerry Brown and Governor-elect Gavin Newsom. GOP congressmen Kevin McCarthy and Doug Lamalfa, also joined the president during the assessment. The president said the government will take care of the people who have been hurt badly by the fires, and praised first responders and emergency crews working to extinguish the flames throughout the

President Trump and his predecessor, Barack Obama, were not the best of buds during the 2016 campaign. But the two buried the hatchet before Trump took office -- and Obama even offered some helpful advice to the incoming commander in chief. In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Trump revealed that Obama told him what he thought was the most pressing problem facing the United States. "I think North Korea’s been very tough because you know we were very close. When I took that over -- President Obama right in those two chairs, we sat and talked and he said

Before killing himself with a drug intended for rapid and painless animal euthanasia, Richard A. Morrisett had endured a nightmare at the University of Texas in Austin. The 57-year-old tenured professor of pharmacology and toxicology was once a rising star in the College of Pharmacy – a man regarded as a first-rate research scientist and teacher during his 21 years at the state´s flagship university. Morrisett´s research offered new insights into alcohol-related brain disorders and alcoholism – an arcane area of research among neuroscientists. Some colleagues called him “brilliant.” Morrisett´s career, however, was destroyed by a single newspaper article. Published

Students are allowed to bundle up during the winter, but only if they do so cheaply, says a high school in northwestern England. The school sent a letter to parents in early November warning them that expensive coats would no longer be allowed. The headteacher of Woodchurch High School in Birkenhead said the ban would take effect after Christmas and the school was “mindful that some young people put pressure on their parents to purchase expensive items of clothing,” according to CNN. The coats being banned are from Canada Goose and Moncler, brands that sell jackets that can cost well

Boy, is this video ever interesting. In the first several minutes of the video (briefing) Governor Brown and Governor-elect Newsom are absent. Likely both are receiving massive inbound communication from their political teams and national democrats who are watching every granular moment/optic for political damage and giving advice. After Brown and Newsom finally show up, their lack of actual connection to the crisis being explained in front of them is jaw-dropping. Watch their body language, they are oblivious to the actual issues at hand and have no questions for the SME’s. Stunning. Absolutely stunning. (Video) As a comparative mental exercise

After Recount, Democrat Gillum Concedes
Florida Governor Race to Republican DeSantis
Breitbart Politics, by Kyle Morris    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 11/17/2018 9:04:13     Post Reply
After a strenuous recount process that ended Thursday, Democrat Andrew Gillum has thrown in the towel and conceded the Florida governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis, making DeSantis Florida’s governor-elect. DeSantis defeated Gillum by 33,683 votes, or 0.41 percentage points. Gillum, who withdrew his Nov. 6th concession to DeSantis once the election went to an automatic recount, released an official statement on Facebook saying, “We said we would fight until the last vote is counted. We are now closing out the hand recount phase in two of the statewide races.” (Video) Gillum, who serves as Tallahassee’s mayor, also congratulated Governor-elect DeSantis

I was minding my own business while pontificating about the present political clime and prognosticating about future congressional shenanigans on America’s Voice News when, without warning, I found myself stumbling through the past, darkly: specifically, I was subjected to a video clip of one of my own speeches, circa 2008. Inexplicably, the co-hosts, Amanda Head and Margaret Howell, did not demand my Skype feed be cut off; and, instead, mercifully tolerated the clip. But how did the video magically appear during the segment? Apparently, the producer, Bettina, had found the old speech on YouTube; rather enjoyed it; shared the clip to

Back on the campaign trail: Trump

President Trump is headed to Mississippi a week from Monday for two rallies ahead of the runoff election in the state the following day. Trump will hold the first rally at 5 p.m. Central Time in Tupelo, Miss., and the second later in the evening at 8 p.m. in Biloxi, Miss. On election night last week, neither of the top two finishers, Republican incumbent Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and her Democratic opponent, Mike Espy, received 50 percent of the vote, forcing a runoff set for Tuesday, Nov. 27. Hyde-Smith received almost 1 percentage point more than Espy in the midterm elections,

President Trump on Saturday pushed back on a “phony” New York Times story that said Trump was questioning Vice President Mike Pence’s loyalty and that a 2020 shakeup could be on the cards -- telling reporters that Pence was “100 percent loyal.” “No, I don’t question his loyalty. He is 100 percent loyal,” he told reporters before departing for California. “It was a phony story. I doubt they have any sources, a typical New York Times phony story.” The article, published Friday, reported that Trump has repeatedly asked aides and advisers about Pence’s loyalty to the point that it has

Marijuana regulators in Massachusetts have authorized a pair of dispensaries to start recreational sales on Tuesday, making the state the seventh in the nation to permit retail pot shops in spite of the plant’s status as a federally prohibited substance. The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission on Friday notified the operators of two existing medical marijuana dispensaries – Cultivate Holdings in Leicester and New England Treatment Access in Northampton — that they could begin recreational sales effective Nov. 20. Massachusetts voted in Nov. 2016 to legalize recreational marijuana and launch a system for regulating, taxing and selling the plant, and the two

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

A black woman says she felt “racially profiled” when she was booted from a Virginia Dunkin’ Donuts after she tried to use the shop’s free Wi-Fi without buying anything, reports said. Tirza Wilbon White was about to use her laptop in the Fairfax store when a woman who identified herself as the owner told her and another man — also a person of color — that they’d have to make a purchase if they wanted to stay. “This is what it means to be black in America,” White said in a Facebook post last week. “I am a regular in this

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her. Brenda Snipes, elections supervisor of Broward county, was condemned by Republicans and Democrats after failing to submit tallies in the US Senate race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson on schedule. (Snip) In a short interview, Snipes, 75, said: “You know, the protesters have been claiming stuff all week so whatever they’re doing, that’s what they’re doing. That’s what they feel like they need to do.”

In other words, every rifle in America.(tweets)Further, he´s warning citizens of nuclear annihilation should people refuse to comply.(tweets)When he was confronted, Swalwell tried to backtrack with some context and further explanation.(tweets)He then pulled the victim card.(tweet)"Gun buyback" is a nice term for confiscation, which Swalwell acknowledged. "Assault rifle" is a politically loaded, misleading term used by the left to demonize semi-automatic rifles. And yes, confiscating millions of privately owned firearms is indeed tyrannical.

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, refused to concede in her race against Republican Brian Kemp, but has said there is no possibility of her defeating Kemp and has concluded her bid for Georgia governor. "I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said Friday. "This speech is not a concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper," Abrams said. "As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.

Democrat Stacey Abrams ended her bid to be Georgia governor late Friday in a speech which she said was not a ´concession´ but an acknowledgment that she cannot win. She said Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, would win the vote count which was due to be certified at 5 p.m., just as she made the speech. But she ended her bid to be the nation´s first black female governor defiantly saying that she would be suing in federal court over the election´s ´gross mismanagement´, taking a bitter election with claims of racist voter suppression into a new arena.

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” Snipes has been in the crosshairs of national controversy since Election Day. With a noon Sunday deadline looming,

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession. Even though, as he describes it in his new book, Every Day Is Extra,

Kelly, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, ruled in favor of Acosta in CNN’s lawsuit claiming that the White House violated his First Amendment rights when it revoked his press pass after a contentious exchange between the network’s chief White House correspondent and Trump.
