Video: Driving through Paradise in the midst of the Camp Fire

Published

The Camp Fire in Northern California has forced tens of thousands to evacuate. Some barely made it before the fire reached them.

At least five didn’t make it.

The rapidly spreading fire has yielded hundreds of videos and startling images being shared on social media. One in particular has nearly 800,000 views in a day with over 12,000 shares and 2,000 comments. The video was posted by a Paradise resident who’s Facebook profile is Brynn Parrott Chatfield.

This stunning video shoes complete devastation and a nearness on both sides of the road that would terrify any driver. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by this disaster.

Bill de Blasio campaign launch sputters. Even his YouTube channel has under 100 subscribers.

Published

It’s been about 24 hours since New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio launched his presidential campaign, and it’s off to a strange start. First, the excitement level has been hovering somewhere south of none. Then, he was clowned in his own city by Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

Not to be outdone, Jimmy Kimmel joined in on the bashing.

The morning after his launch is treating the Democrat any kinder. He’s waking up to headlines like “De Blasio unites America — against his presidential bid” and “Doesn’t anyone like Bill de Blasio?

But arguably the most embarrassing indictment of how poorly his campaign is being received is on his own YouTube channel. As of the time of this article, a full day after he announced, he’s been able to accumulate 87 subscribers.

President Trump has been giving him plenty of attention, but perhaps it’s time to stop. Bill de Blasio is not going to be a contender for the Democratic nomination. Even 76% of people in his own city don’t want him to be President.

California Senate Republican Leader Grove responds to fate of the doomed high-speed rail

California Senate Republican Leader Grove responds to fate of the doomed high-speed rail

SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement after the United States Department of Transportation released a letter today to the California High-Speed Rail Authority announcing that it will terminate nearly $1 billion in funding for the boondoggle project.

On Wednesday, the online media website California Globe posted an op-ed written by Leader Grove where she stated, “The high-speed rail project has run off its rails and become a massive waste of taxpayer dollars.” Read the full op-ed here.

“Today the federal government acknowledged what everyone who isn’t being paid by the authority already knows; California’s high-speed rail project is dead. The only question that remains is — how many more taxpayer dollars are going to be wasted chasing this impractical dream?

“Right now, the federal government has put California on notice that we aren’t getting the nearly $1 billion that the High-Speed Rail Authority says it needs to complete the Merced to Bakersfield line. When voters were asked to consider this project, it looked a lot different. Now, the project will take longer, will cost more money, and will no longer travel to its original destination. This is not the project voters approved. It is time for California to cancel this big rail fail,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.

AOC flat-out lies about Alabama abortion bill and her flock buys into it without question

AOC flat-out lies about Alabama abortion bill and her flock buys into it without question

The Alabama abortion bill that just passed in the state Senate is heading to the desk of Governor Kay Ivey. Most are expecting the pro-life Republican to sign it. When she does, Alabama will have the strongest abortion laws in the country until it’s shot down in courts. It will eventually reach the Supreme Court where its fate – and the fate of Roe v. Wade itself – may be on the shoulders of the two right-leaning justices.

As expected, many on the left are already up in arms before the bill has even been signed. Some on the right are saying it goes too far, and I’ll explain in a future article why this is a ridiculous sentiment, but for now I want to focus on one particular unhinged, untruthful, and often unintelligible leftist: Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

In response to the bill’s passage, AOC told a bald-faced lie and her swarm of followers ran with it. They’re still running with it even though many are calling it out for being patently false.

Tens of thousand of her supporters have liked and/or retweeted it, meaning it has been seen by millions of Twitter users. But it’s a lie. Multiple components of the Tweet are false, but the full-blown Pinocchio impersonation is in the middle when she says “felony punishable w jailtime,incl women victimized by rape+incest.”

This is not true. But reading the comments made by her avid, unquestioning supporters, there are now plenty of people who believe this is factual, adding to the hatred brewing on the left and likely confusing at least a few in the middle and on the right who would find such things to be unfair.

Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles pointed out the truth:

Others have called her out for it, including OAN’s Liz Wheeler who got into a discussion with AOC in the Twitter thread itself.

Others joined in.

For the record, in case AOC’s lies are too plentiful for some to see the truth, the Alabama abortion bill does NOT punish women who get an abortion regardless of the circumstances behind their pregnancy. This bill goes after those who perform abortion. The taking of a human life is murder and the murderers are to be punished.

Here are a couple more Tweets worth noting:

It’s telling the left has to tell bald-faced lies in order to try to make their point about abortion. But the facts are there for everyone to read. No level of Democratic deception can prevent the truth from coming out.
