Drone footage of Hurricane Michael’s destruction

155 MPH winds from category 4 Hurricane Michael decimated Mexico Beach, Florida. Some areas along the coast are absolutely flattened. At least five have been reported killed by the hurricane and death tolls are expected to rise dramatically.

Mexico Beach left in ruins by Michael

At least two people died in the storm, and federal officials fear the death toll could rise as search and rescue crews begin to assess the damage.

Roads to Mexico Beach were virtually impassable, so Baldwin, who spent the night in nearby Destin, Fla., chartered a chopper to get the view from above. Fires could be seen burning in the distance, homes shredded and boats strewn across the town of about 1,100 people.

The President is expected to visit as soon as it’s feasible. Rescue and recovery efforts are already underway.

The most powerful hurricane to ever hit the Florida panhandle came as a surprise to most as it rapidly increased strength overnight just prior to hitting.

How the FISA Report will further dampen the Mueller Report

How the FISA Report will further dampen the Mueller Report

The hopes and dreams of Democrats around the country were systematically shattered over the last few months as the Mueller investigation into Russian hacking of the 2016 election yielded very little fruit. That hasn’t stopped the House Democrats from fishing for more information than the two-year investigation produced in hopes of hanging President Trump with an impeachment.

But the initial draft of the Department of Justice’s inspector general Michael Horowitz’s report has been given to the Attorney General for classification and markup, meaning the public will soon have access to the sordid details surrounding the Steele Dossier and other measures used to secure FISA warrants against the Trump campaign.

Meanwhile, former Deputy Attorney General Andrew McCabe has been recommended for charges after allegedly lying about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation around the same time period. And there’s still the U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into illegal spying on the Trump campaign. All of this combines for a very rocky road ahead for Democrats and former DoJ personnel who may be held accountable for a fruitless investigation trumped up by false claims and shoddy sourcing.

It seems very likely the various “investigations of the investigators” will cause controversy at the very least while possibly leading to charges against multiple people. The seemingly coordinated effort to subvert the Trump campaign and to counter his victory in the then-unlikely scenario in which he wins jibes with the incessant pushing of the collusion narrative by Democrats and mainstream media. It wasn’t that they had anything of substance. They hopes what they had would have substance that would manifest in the Mueller report.

But now the Mueller investigation itself is in jeopardy of losing any remnants of credibility it still has as the premise behind it is being challenged by Attorney General William Barr and the various investigations he has commissioned. Horowitz’s report is the biggest so far, but may only be the tip of the iceberg compared to what Durham may find.

With all of the arrows pointing to foul play by Obama’s DoJ and the Mueller investigation, these reports are likely to unravel all hopes the Democrats have of stopping President Trump before the 2020 election. After he wins, their dreams will be quashed.

Shocking videos highlight heinous violence in Ilhan Omar’s Minneapolis district

Shocking videos highlight heinous violence in Ilhan Omars Minneapolis district

Murders, rapes, assaults, and other violent crimes have skyrocketed in Minneapolis over the last year. Robberies alone are up over 53% year-over-year, but the real picture is more disturbing than statistics can show. Recent videos demonstrate a severeness in the violence being perpetrated. The criminals running the streets in Minneapolis aren’t just robbing people. They’re beating them senseless and humiliating them in ways that go beyond the simple motive of theft.

One of those videos is making its rounds on social media today. Warning: This brutal assault is difficult to watch:

Meanwhile, their representative in Washington DC, Ilhan Omar, is busy trying to crackdown on ICE, CBP, and other law enforcement agencies. In case you think that’s a misstatement, the freshman Democratic Congresswoman isn’t trying to crack down crime or criminals. She’s trying to crackdown on law enforcement to prevent them from doing their jobs, in some cases calling for entire law enforcement agencies to be abolished. These are the types of policies that lead to the rise in violence her district is seeing today.

But it’s not her fault. She’s a Congresswoman, and it would be disingenuous to try to pin these problems on her. The point isn’t to blame her but instead to blame the far-left policies that resonate through cities like Minneapolis. To seek blame, we need to look at leadership in the city itself, namely Mayor Jacob Frey and the city council. Frey is a progressive Democrat. All but one of the 13 city council members are Democrats with the lone exception being a radical progressive Green Party member.

These are the people to blame for rampant, heinous crimes that continue to put the people of Minneapolis at risk. To stay in power, they bow to the criminals by hampering police, reforming their justice system, and deflecting their problems by claiming the opposition is racist for wanting to bring an end to crime.

Is it possible for Minneapolis citizens to demand better conditions that allow them to walk the downtown streets unscathed? As long as they keep electing radical progressives to lead the city, any such demands will fall on deaf ears.

If you think you support red flag gun laws, listen to Jim Jordan talking about them

If you think you support red flag gun laws listen to Jim Jordan talking about them

Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee are pushing through HR1236, the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019, that will impose red flag gun laws across the nation. The gun control legislation is being heralded by most on the left and some on the right who see it as a way of stopping mass shootings before they happen.

But conservatives are pushing back against the law as subversion of gun rights, property rights, and due process rights. One of those leading the charge to stop this bill from making it through the House is Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH). In a passionate speech within the committee, Jordan lambasted his colleagues for betraying their oath to the Constitution and for upending what the House Judiciary Committee was intended to do in protecting the Bill of Rights.

“What other constitutional right can you lose without doing anything wrong and without your knowledge, and have to petition the court to get it back?” Jordan asked.

Red flag gun laws such as HR1236 would allow various people to petition the court to have law enforcement remove firearms from people they believe to be a threat to themselves or others. It has gained in popularity following several mass shootings this summer, though none of them seem to have been preventable if such laws were in place. As Jordan points out, the language of the bill makes it to where anyone who has lived with the accused in the last year, from an ex-girlfriend to a disgruntled roommate, can have the court remove firearms without the victim even knowing the process is happening.

In other words, accusers get the power to paint someone as guilty without due process, at which point they must then prove to the court they’re innocent. This isn’t how America is supposed to work.

Law abiding citizens can be targeted for confiscation without doing anything wrong under red flag gun laws. This is unconstitutional, unAmerican, and moves us closer to the authoritarian state the left wants for all of us.
