A young mother asleep with her three-year-old daughter as her 10-year-old nephew slumbered nearby were among those killed in a devastating mudslide that brought tragedy and sorrow to the small, wealthy California enclave of Montecito as the death toll rises to 18.Other victims included a 22-year-old woman who died in the arms of her brother as he frantically tried to save her after their father was swept to his death by the fast-moving river of mud.Californian authorities have called for public help in locating seven people still missing although they acknowledge that finding anyone alive would be a ´miracle´.´The missing

Very sad. I saw something like this in NM after heavy storms. Was told later the ultimate cause was developers filling in the natural runoff gullies at the base of the mountain and building houses on top. When it rained hard enough, the water had nowhere to go, but it went anyway. Seeing swimming pools filled with boulders is surreal.

Hillary Clinton revealed she believes things are only to get worse in the US while Donald Trump remains president. Clinton, who was speaking at women´s club The Wing in Manhattan, urged her audience to vote in the midterms because ´I don´t think we´ve seen the bottom yet´. ´You can march from now until doomsday, but if you don’t elect people who agree with you nothing will change,´ she said on Tuesday night.

As Parkland student activist David Hogg runs laps with his media appearances touting gun control and attacking the Second Amendment, it seems his fame has had a direct effect on another student. The mass shooting at his Florida high school in February catapulted Hogg to his new-found fame and increasing Twitter followers – now at over 720K – but also affected another David Hogg who decided to leave Twitter for a time. The other David Hogg is actually a 16-year-old college student, a conservative and a proud supporter of the Second Amendment. But the social media attention on the Parkland

The YouTube shooter was identified by multiple news outlets Tuesday evening as Nasim Aghdam, a Middle Eastern woman with a grudge against the company. NBC News said she was a 39-year-old woman whose last known address was in San Diego and whose middle name is Najafi. ABC News reported similarly, citing “two law-enforcement officials.” (Tweets) While she was not a YouTube employee, NBC Bay Area reported that she had a YouTube channel and would frequently use it to post rants against the company. According to NBC, she accused YouTube in January 2017 in a video of having “discriminated and filtered”

“I feel very strongly about this. I feel that it’s the right thing to do,” said Fred W. Brown in an interview with LifeZette on Tuesday. Brown is the sheriff of Hunterdon County, New Jersey — and he was referring to strengthening the security of our country. “We need Congress to support law enforcement. The president is very supportive of law enforcement, fortunately,” he added about Donald J. Trump. “And we’ve noticed a big turnaround in support for law enforcement [since the election]. We need that. America needs that.” Hundreds of elected officials — members of the National Sheriffs’ Association

“Roseanne,” the ABC sitcom, brought in 25 million viewers and counting to the shock of elites who believed that the biggest new draw on TV was Jimmy Kimmel and comedy tilting politically left. But there are an estimated 15 million closet conservatives in America today — people who have views that are more conservative than they let on to friends and family — and series star Roseanne Barr tapped into that enormous constituency.Hillary Clinton recently suggested that women were being in some sense forced or brainwashed into following their spouses. And yet, the real phenomenon seems to be the opposite:

Andrew McCabe was fired hours before he would’ve collected a multi-million pension from FBI, where he served as deputy director. It was abundantly clear that Mr. McCabe had to go—and this wasn’t from the Trump White House. Sure, President Trump made McCabe to be a boogeyman, but the smoking gun was not in the Oval Office, it was the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility, which recommended McCabe get the axe. The reason: lying to investigators and an unauthorized media disclosure to The Wall Street Journal about the tension between the FBI and DOJ over the Clinton Foundation probe. Oh,

WASHINGTON- Special counsel Robert Mueller responded to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort´s motion to dismiss charges by filing a memo showing authorization from the deputy attorney general to investigate an unknown number of individuals for collusion or financial crimes related to the Russia investigation.In February, arguing that Mueller had exceeded the scope of his investigative authority, Manafort filed a motion to dismiss the superseding indictment. That includes charges of conspiracy against the United States, money laundering, operating as an unregistered agent of a foreign government, and more.In response to that motion, Mueller late Monday filed a 282-page opposition response

A new report shines a light on the growing momentum to appoint a second special counsel to probe Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Steele dossier. Washington Free Beacon reports: Momentum is building on Capitol Hill for the Trump administration to reopen an investigation into former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her connections to an anti-Trump dossier that served as the basis for an ongoing investigation into President Trump and collusion with Russia during the 2018 election, according to lawmakers who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman speculated the Mueller special counsel probe will result in some sort of finding that will lead to a “constitutional crisis.” That according to Friedman will lead to former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama having to step and prevent a constitutional crisis. (Snip) I believe the Mueller investigation, when it is finally put on the table before us, will trigger some form of constitutional crisis. I don’t know what he’s going to find about the president, whether it’s collusion, whether it’s financial impropriety, I have no idea. But

Conservatives’ expectations for honest and fair movies coming out of Hollywood are understandably low. For decades now we have been brow-beaten and lectured by clueless celebrities on everything from saving the Spotted Owl to gun control – the latest flavor of the moment. But a breath of fresh air is blowing in from the left coast. The new movie ‘Chappaquiddick,’ from Entertainment Studios and Apex Entertainment, is a brutally honest recounting of one of America’s greatest public tragedies: the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in a car owned and driven by Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)

South African anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has died aged 81, her personal assistant says. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was the former wife of South Africa´s first black president, Nelson Mandela. The couple - famously pictured hand-in-hand as Mr Mandela walked free from prison after 27 years - were a symbol of the anti-apartheid struggle for nearly three decades. However, in later years her reputation became tainted legally and politically. Family spokesman Victor Dlamini said Mrs Mandela "succumbed peacefully in the early hours of Monday afternoon surrounded by her family and loved ones"

Viral videos posted on social media show teenagers snorting condoms as part of a so-called "condom snorting challenge." In the videos, teens put an unwrapped condom up one of their nostrils and inhale until the condom comes out of their mouth. Like other viral challenges, the condom snorting challenge has been around for years but recently reemerged on social media. In San Antonio, Stephen Enriquez, who teaches drug and alcohol prevention to parents, has also started to teach parents about dangerous online trends like the condom snorting challenge, KABB-TV reported.

Many Marjory Stoneman Douglas students behind the #NeverAgain movement don´t support a new requirement to carry only clear backpacks. Some see it as an invasion of privacy, and some say it´s not the change that´s needed to ensure school safety. Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure. As of Tuesday morning, the photo was retweeted nearly 2,000 times. He followed up with a comment about tampon prices, also making a point to say women´s health products should be easier to access. Last month, families of the Florida

With the U.S. Census Bureau reporting yet another year of population loss for the city, it doesn’t take an investigator to determine the causes. The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.

(Video) - The organization behind the 1,000-person strong caravan of Central Americans surging toward the United States´ southern border accused President Trump on Monday of "bullying" immigrants and threatening "mass violence" -- while Trump again warned the advancing procession "had better be stopped." Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, fired back at Trump after the president´s Twitter tirade urging Congress to invoke the “nuclear option” -- requiring only a simple majority to pass legislation -- in order to pass bills for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and tough immigration reform.

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions. In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges. The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is

The workshop, titled “Christian Privilege: But Our Founding Fathers Were All Christian, Right?!” will be hosted by Timothy Kane, the “proudly gay” interim associate director for inclusion initiatives at George Washington University.
