Listen up, people! Flash floods in Arizona are extremely dangerous and to be respected and expected ANY time it rains. I´m looking at a monsoon storm in the mountains just south of where this occurred. The waters will come roaring down out of those mountains and be here on the desert floor in minutes...there is no place else for it to go and you will not escape if it catches you. It´s not what is happening where you are that matters. It´s what is happening anywhere on higher ground.

What a terrible tragedy. As #1 says, you have to be alert to any rainfall upstream.
It may seem counter intuitive but flooding in arid or semi-arid regions is not uncommon.

I have a good friend who just posted that they had been swimming in that same stream just shortly before this happened. They saw the sky get dark and purple in the distance. One of the people with them, who grew up in the area, said that when they saw the sky like that they got out of the stream. They got out of the creek and went to get ice cream.

Sad news. Whenever we go into canyons in the SW, we check for weather reports in the area. If there are thunderstorms around, it just isn´t worth it to go in.

Cancun, MX - Gunmen murdered two police commanders and an 8-month-old child in the Mexican resort city of Cancun at a shopping mall frequented by American tourists. The officers were husband and wife and recipients of death threats for their cartel crackdowns. A team of assassins was waiting for the family outside of a local theater in the Gran Plaza shopping center, Mexico’s Milenio reported. (Snip) When the gunmen performed the ambush, they killed Duran while his wounded wife tried to flee with the child in her arms. The woman and child were later shot execution style, as well.

Washington - The Trump administration is preparing to make it easier for American gun makers to sell small arms, including assault rifles and ammunition, to foreign buyers, according to senior U.S. officials. Aides to President Donald Trump are completing a plan to shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department, four officials told Reuters. While the State Department is primarily concerned about international threats to stability and maintains tight restrictions on weapons deals, the Commerce Department typically focuses more on facilitating trade.

During his speech to the UN General Assembly Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned of a "vast Islamist Iranian empire" if the Iranian nuclear deal is not fixed or nixed. "Every day, Iran is conducting a campaign of conquest across the Middle East and developing ballistic missiles to threaten the entire world," he said. He compared Iran´s quest to become a nuclear power with that of North Korea, whose leader US President Donald Trump referred to as "rocket man" earlier today. "There are those who still defend the dangerous [Iranian nuclear] deal, arguing that it will block Iran´s path to the bomb.

Mexico City - A 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico on Tuesday, shaking buildings in the capital of Mexico City and sending people fleeing into the street. The quake hit only hours after many people participated in earthquake drills around the nation on the anniversary of the devastating quake that killed thousands in Mexico City in 1985. The 7.4 quake hit 5 miles (8 km) southeast of Atencingo in the central state of Puebla at a depth of 32 miles (51 km), the U.S. Geological Survey said. Luis Felipe Puente, the head of Mexico’s civil protection agency, said on his Twitter account that there were no immediate reports of damages.

The U.S. is considering shooting down missiles from North Korea even if they do not directly threaten the U.S. or its allies, according to CNN. CNN on Tuesday reported that the notion of downing a North Korean missile has largely centered on projectiles immediately endangering America or its partners. An official directly familiar with the Trump administration’s options planning, however, told CNN that other possibilities are under review. CNN’s source said that it needs to be answered if North Korea’s missile program has progressed to the level of presenting an inherent threat. The source noted that at such a level,

Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on

Amman - U.S. troops and allied Arab fighters have evacuated a garrison set up in June in the Syrian desert near the border with Iraq and relocated to their main Tanf base, rebel sources said on Tuesday. They said the move follows a deal between Washington and Moscow to abandon the Zakf site, located around 60-70 km (40-50 miles) northeast of Tanf. (Snip) Zakf was established to stop the Syrian army and allied Iranian-backed militias advancing from territory north of Tanf towards the Iraqi border after they managed to cut off and encircle rebels backed by Washington. “We have left the garrison after our allies reached an

According to IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen, Ronen Manelis the Hezbollah-operated drone which took off from Damascus International Airport and was followed in real time by the Israel army before it crossed the demilitarized zone and was intercepted by one Patriot missile. The Iranian-built drone was used by Hezbollah to collect intelligence, Manelis said, adding that fighter jets were also scrambled but did not fire on the drone which

Paul Manafort wiretapped —

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, was being wiretapped by feds — not just once, but twice — as part of an FBI investigation into his dealings in Ukraine and Russia. The secret surveillance took place at a time when Manafort was in contact with Trump, all the way into 2017. And with that, Trump, who claimed that his Trump Tower had been wiretapped by Barack Obama in the lead-up to the election, is suddenly no longer the crazy dude the left made him to appear. Suddenly, it seems — hey now, maybe feds working under the Obama administration did catch Trump in some secret

   

 

  


 
Former Trump Campaign Chief Reportedly
Under Intermittent FBI Surveillance
From 2014 Until This Year

There are many potential vulnerabilities in President Trump’s legal defense in the multipronged investigation into his Russian ties—Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., Mike Flynn, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, advisers Roger Stone and Carter Page, to name a few in Trump’s orbit—but former campaign chief Paul Manafort, so far, appears to be the biggest liability. On top of all we know already about Manafort’s shadowy overseas political consulting operation, CNN reported Monday that Manafort was under FBI surveillance dating back to 2014, well before he joined the Trump campaign.

Senate overwhelmingly passed bill
pumping $700 billion into military

The Senate has overwhelmingly approved a sweeping policy bill that would pump $700 billion into the military, putting the U.S. armed forces on track for a budget greater than at any time during the decade-plus wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Senators passed the legislation by a 89-8 vote Monday. The measure authorizes $700 billion in military spending for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, expands U.S. missile defenses in response to North Korea’s growing hostility and refuses to allow excess military bases to be closed. The 1,215-page measure defies a number of White House objections, but President Donald Trump hasn't

Apology, apology, who’s got an apology?
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article

The art of the apology has become junk science, particularly in the entertainment business. Calibrating an apology is hard work, figuring out to whom the apology is aimed, and how much of it is sincere. A rule of thumb is that apologies are spoken to the wind, and none of them are sincere. ESPN, the sports network, is part of Disney entertainment enterprises, and last week one of its “anchors,” a $1.98 cent word for “announcer,” or “reader,” had to be disciplined by the network for telling her semi-vast following that “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/other white supremacists.” She said it in

A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way.

Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more

The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.

Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,

Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation.

U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,

President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
