Mudslide survivor: ´I did not let
that baby go for one second´

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/9/2014 10:09:28 PM

SEATTLE- Amanda Skorjanc was watching videos with her infant son when the lights in her home started to flicker and shake. She looked outside and saw a terrifying sight: a massive mudslide crashing down the hillside, and nearby houses "exploding" from its force. A neighbor´s chimney was barreling toward her door, so Skorjanc gripped her son tightly and turned away. "I held onto that baby like it was the only purpose that I had," she said. "I did not let that baby go for one second." When it was over, the powerful river of mud and debris had laid waste

The physical tends to take care of itself if one survives an extreme horror.

As the doctor stated, it´s the emotional trauma that gets implanted on the brain.

And haunts. I think, for the rest of one´s life.

IRS Officials To Face Judge Who Once

Mark your calendars for July 10. That is the day IRS officials get to explain to a federal judge why the tax agency didn’t inform the court that Lois Lerner’s emails had been lost even though the agency had knowledge of the missing emails and of other IRS officials´ missing emails. Things are definitely heating up for the IRS. On Friday, attorneys for Judicial Watch sought a courtroom status conference “as soon as possible to discuss the IRS’s failure to fulfill its duties to this court under the law, as well as other ramifications of this lawsuit.” Emmet G. Sullivan,

Confusion over doctor lists is costly
for Obamacare enrollees in state

Frustration and legal challenges over the network of doctors and hospitals for Obamacare patients have marred an otherwise successful rollout of the federal healthcare law in California. Limiting the number of medical providers was part of an effort by insurers to hold down premiums. But confusion over the new plans has led to unforeseen medical bills for some patients and prompted a state investigation. More complaints are surfacing as patients start to use their new coverage bought through Covered California, the state´s health insurance exchange. "I thought I had done everything right, and it´s been awful," said Jean Buchanan, 56.

(Video) Washington- During his two weeks aboard a ship to the United States, Ahmed Abu Khatallah was questioned by FBI interrogators over his alleged role in the 2012 Benghazi attacks that left four Americans dead. As it turns out, he was interrogated both before and after authorities told him of his Miranda rights -- which give him the right to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination, a U.S. official told CNN. But Abu Khatallah continued providing information to officials after being advised of those rights, the official said. Miranda rights are part of due process for anyone arrested in the United

I am rapidly coming to the preliminary conclusion that Elizabeth Warren will be the Democrats’ 2016 standard bearer. Hillary Clinton is just too unlikable (remember that Barack Obama called her “likable enough” in one of the most memorable back handed compliments of recent political memory), and too transparently greedy, self-serving, and out of touch. Not to mention the appalling foreign affairs crises the United States faces in the wake of her term as Secretary of State. Her brand is tarnished. Jonah Goldberg, one of the canniest and funniest observers of the political scene, has a must-read column on why Warren

Aggressive pricing strategy, or the worst fundraising gimmick ever? You make the call. While conservatives and Republicans have mocked the weak performance of Hillary Clinton’s ballyhooed policy tome, Hard Choices, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) thinks there’s gold in that thar Hill. The DSCC today ran an ad on the front page of NYTimes.com offering a personalized, signed copy of Hillary Clinton’s new book. It’s FREE, if you win the drawing. (Second prize: A set of steak knives.) Of course, the real purpose of the ad is to induce you to make a contribution to the DSCC to help

During a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border on Saturday, Nancy Pelosi said she held little hope that Congress will pass comprehensive immigration reform this year. The House Minority leader made her remarks during a visit to a Brownsville border patrol facility that cares for unaccompanied children. Saying that she wished she could ´take home´ the tens of thousands of children being cared for by such centers, Pelosi called for politics to be set aside to address what Barack Obama has called an ´urgent humanitarian situation´. More than 52,000 unaccompanied children, most from Central America, have been apprehended entering the U.S.

President Obama will ask Congress to provide more than $2 billion in new funds to control the surge of illegal Central American migrants at the South Texas border, and to grant broader powers for immigration officials to speed deportations of children caught crossing without their parents, White House officials said on Saturday. Mr. Obama will send a letter on Monday to alert Congress that he will seek an emergency appropriation for rapidly expanding border enforcement actions and humanitarian assistance programs to cope with the influx, which includes record numbers of unaccompanied minors and adults bringing children. The officials gave only

PORTLAND, Ore.- When Rachel Martinez-Regan graduated from Corvallis High School this month, her diploma had a little something extra - an embossed seal certifying that she is bilingual. She is one of more than a dozen students at the Oregon high school who earned the distinction based on their proficiency in English and Spanish. The honor is part of a pilot project led by several school districts in the state with dual-language programs, and the Oregon Department of Education plans to make the bilingual seals available statewide next year. California, New Mexico, Washington, Illinois and Louisiana are among the other

President Obama is golfing Saturday with ESPN sports commentator Tony Kornheiser, for the third time in less than a year. Luke Rosa and Marvin Nicholson, a pair of White House staffers, round out the president’s foursome at Fort Belvoir in suburban Virginia, about a half hour outside Washington. Kornheiser, a former Washington Post columnist, co-hosts ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” with Michael Wilbon. Kornheiser and Wilbon, another former Post columnist, both golfed with the president in July 2013 and September 2013.

(Video) Saturday at a press conference from the Rio Grande Valley, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed her tour of a border holding facility and addressed the humanitarian crisis of thousands unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, which she called a "humanitarian opportunity." Pelosi explained, "We are all Americans -- north and south in this hemisphere," and urged America to see this as not a crisis but an opportunity "to be helpful." She also said she wished she could simply "take home" the thousands of children temporarily housed in the overburden facilities. According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Ahmed Abu Khattala, a suspected Libyan ringleader of the 2012 terrorist embassy attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, was brought Saturday from a Navy warship to the federal courthouse in the District, where he entered a plea of not guilty to a single conspiracy charge. Just before 3:30 p.m., Abu Khattala walked into a courtroom in downtown Washington unshackled, wearing a black zip-up hoodie and black pants. He appeared in public for the first time 13 days after he was captured in Libya and hours after a brief sunrise helicopter ride from the USS New York, which had transported

The Billings Gazette, a Montana newspaper that endorsed President Obama over John McCain in 2008 (but went with Romney in 2012) admitted Friday that they were wrong -- Obama is in fact worse than his predecessor, George W. Bush. Apparently, the potential collapse of Iraq (and the disastrous worldwide consequences sure to follow) was the last straw. "[W]e were wrong," the editorial page notes,"We said things couldn´t get much worse after the sub par presidency of George W. Bush.

Currently traveling in Minnesota, Barack Obama appears to be bristling at the notion that House Republicans are set to challenge him in the courts. PBS characterizes his demeanor as "mocking." Perhaps. But observers of he Obama White House might note that he often becomes petulant, if not downright immature whenever he feels his presumed authority is being challenged by another branch of America´s Constitutional form of government. “They’re not doing anything, and then they’re mad at me for doing something,” Mr. Obama said of Republican lawmakers, adding, “They’ve decided they’re going to sue me for doing my job.” This came

With the news of a massive influx of immigrants on the southern border, a new Gallup Poll shows that only 22% of Americans favor increased immigration. Only 14% of Republicans, 23% of independents, and 27% of Democrats favor increased immigration. The poll actually revealed a strong desire among Americans to decrease immigration, as 41% of respondents thought immigration should be decreased. This included 50% of GOP voters, 43% of independents, and 32% of Democrats. The percentage of those preferring to decrease immigration has jumped from 35% in 2012 and 2013 to 41% in 2014.

A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained. Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company’s paint colors, “Clinton Brown,” “Tucker Chocolate,” and “Confederate Red.” “Being a black man named Clinton Tucker, the plaintiff found this to be extremely racially offensive,” reads the complaint, filed in Essex County Court.

ALAN COLMES: You know it’s funny to me that conservatives talk about how much they love the constitution but when somebody exercises their constitutional rights they’re declared guilty when they’re not supposed to be. Simply because of the Fifth Amendment. Does invoking the Fifth Amendment indicate guilt? I mean, I love how conservatives always tell me how much they love and admire and basically want to have sex with the constitution – except they’d probably get paper cuts with that old parchment paper – but when somebody actually exercises their constitutional rights, it’s a big problem.

Comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney have been greatly exaggerated, Hillary Clinton says. Clinton practically rolled with laughter when PBS’ Gwen Ifill noted humorlessly that her own husband has been “forced” to defend her recent comments about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House. What was humorous in that remarks is known only to Clinton. “I shouldn’t have said the, I think, five or so words that I said,” the former secretary of state said. “My inartful use of those five words doesn’t change who I am.” Later in the interview, Ifill asked if Clinton had become the Democratic adaptation of

Lois Lerner is back in the news cycle after the IRS told a House committee recently a chunk of her emails are missing because of a failed hard drive, with House Republicans holding multiple hearings on the matter in the past week. And in an interview with POLITICO, Lerner’s lawyer says it’s “a little brazen to think she did this on purpose.” William Taylor III says all the Republican hand-wringing about Lerner doing something sinister is just “silly” because, he said, she honestly doesn’t know what happened to the emails.

Dear Secretary Clinton, Please consider this in the nature of a friendly intervention. You have a money problem. It’s time to deal with it before it gets worse. Actually, you have two money problems. The first is how you talk about it. The second is how you collect it — or, to be more precise, the fact that you’re still frenetically collecting it. Let me be clear at the outset: The issue isn’t that you’re rich, or even that you and your husband became rich after leaving office. American voters don’t have a problem with wealthy candidates or even wealthy ex-presidents

Actress Amy Adams traded her first class seat on a Detroit to Los Angeles flight with a soldier who had been booked in coach. Adams reportedly noticed the American serviceman at the gate and quietly asked to switch seats with him. The five-time Academy Award nominee has often spoke glowingly of her father´s time in the military and of growing up on bases in both Italy and U.S. She then had a brief chat with the soldier near the cockpit and scurried to her seat in coach before many people noticed what had happened, according to ESPN host Jemele Hill, who witnessed the switch.

What transpired in the Mississippi Senate run-off is a red line for many conservatives across the country, because the Republican Party establishment essentially took a civil war and escalated it to a war for independence. It’s one thing to oppose your base in a primary. It’s entirely another to despicably play the race card against your base, and bolster the legitimacy of the propaganda of our race-baiting opponents on the Left. But that’s exactly what the Kamikaze pilots running the GOP did. As a result, Chris McDaniel won Republican voters handily on Tuesday, but still lost the run-off statewide thanks

How far did the establishment GOP forces backing Senator Thad Cochran go in Mississippi this week? Too far, and their tactics are likely to leave permanent scars in a civil war with Tea Party forces that are out of all proportion to the importance the establishment placed on saving one 76-year-old senator’s ability to please Washington’s K Street lobbying interests. “This is a win for the establishment, but it’s a win with an asterisk, because it’s so tainted that it might be one of those things where they’re going to be sorry they ever won the runoff in Mississippi,” Craig

MINNEAPOLIS – Move over, Republicans. President Obama has a new boogeyman: The media. During his two-day tour here, the president has let out his frustrations on the fourth estate for failing, in his view, to cover serious issues facing the American people and instead focusing on the frivolous. “If you watch the news, you’d think, ‘Okay, Washington is a mess and the basic attitude is that everybody’s crazy,” Obama told a crowd of 3,500 here at the Lake Harriet Band Shell. Noting that he met with a local resident to discuss her difficulties paying her bills, Obama said: “You don’t

There are two arguments that advocates of Chris McDaniel are using to suggest that the results of Tuesday´s Republican Senate run-off election in Mississippi should be overturned. First, they argue that voters who voted in the Democratic primary and the Republican run-off should be eliminated from the total. And, second, they argue that Mississippi law prevents someone from voting in a party primary who won´t support the general election candidate. Neither argument will work. In the first case, there are almost certainly not enough Democratic primary/GOP runoff ballots to make up the nearly 7,000-vote gap between McDaniel and incumbent Sen. Thad
