Two Humboldt County residents, Dave Creech and Neal Carnam, were believed to be on a hiking trail near Mount Everest when a 7.8 quake struck about 12:40 a.m. our time.
“We are stuck in Lukla. No flights in or out,” came the message from Dave Creech. He and his partner Neal Carnam, both of Northern California, had been exploring the area around Mount Everest when a 7.8 quake struck. Family here anxiously awaited news (see this post here for more information) for hours until just recently when Creech and his partner were able to contact them and let them know they were all right.... Creech sent photographs from the area as the people in Nepal grapple with damaged buildings and fears of aftershocks

Next Republican president must prosecute

Screw bipartisanship. Compromise brought you Dred Scott and Bloody Kansas. Radical Republicanism brought you the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments.

I want the next Republican president to play hardball. Prosecute. Get the Clintons. Get Harry Reid. Get Nancy Pelosi. Wipe out and disbar every prosecutor in Wisconsin who ever used John Doe warrants. Definitely Lois Lerner deserves a special prosecutor.

And be subtle about it. Don't say a damned word. Just do it.

Watch the Obama Administration Mislead the Public on Iran’s Breakout Time

Bruce Jenner comes out as...a Republican! We learn that Americas tolerance/intolerance isn't based on personal differences,but partisanship!

As of today, Americans have earned a combined $4.8 trillion in income since January 1st – the exact amount of state, local and federal taxes we will owe for 2015. And it's still not enough to cover federal spending!

OBAMA EDUCATION SECRETARY: Parents Who Opt Out Of Common Core Are Racist, And the “Feds Will Step In” If Opt Out Continues

OBAMA EDUCATION SECRETARY: Parents Who Opt Out of Common Core are Racists

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan issued a veiled threat to the parents and students who choose to opt out of Common Core testing – The Feds “have an obligation to step in.”
Federal law, under No Child Left Behind, requires 95 percent of students in a state to take the annual standardized tests in reading and math from grades 3-8. It is a requirement which until now has never needed enforcement or consideration.

With as many as 184,000 students in New York choosing to opt out, the 95 percent threshold will not only be in jeopardy, it will be an easily missed mark.

Gay men have dinner with Ted Cruz.
Gay community punishes them

Ted Cruz Campaign Battles 'Intolerant' Boycott of Gay Men Who Hosted Him in New York - David Weigel/Bloomberg @daveweigel
Texas Senator Ted Cruz has picked many fights in his short political career, and faced down a multitude of enemies. Yet he has never faced an opponent quite like Broadway Bares Solo Strips.

The producers of the New York City show became the first people to boycott a venue owned by Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, gay entrepreneurs who hosted Cruz for an event this week. As first reported by Maggie Haberman in the New York Times, Cruz held a "fireside chat" with about a dozen interested people at the penthouse owned by Weiderpass and Reisner. The ostensible topic was Israel; Cruz, like many Republicans, is looking for openings with donors who have leaned Democrat may be shopping around for a new party out of a feeling that the Obama administration has slighted the Jewish State. Yet Cruz told attendees that gay marriage was an issue for the states -- though if one of his daughters were gay, he would love them just as much....

In statements to Haberman, Reisner and Weiderpass said that they disagreed with Cruz on gay marriage, and that his appearance "was a step in the right direction toward him having a better understanding" of what they believed.

..."The swarm of locusts we've dubbed 'the Rainbow Jihad' on my show is so out of control, it now threatens it's own benefactors," said Steve Deace, a conservative Des Moines radio host. "If these cultural Marxists won't even tolerate leaders in their own community like Reisner having a peaceful dialogue with the other side, then it's not a movement but an inquisition."

That was the tone Cruz's campaign took when asked about the boycott this afternoon.

"I'm not sure where their intolerance leads," said Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler. "Are they going to boycott TV networks and their advertisers that interview Ted Cruz? Book stores that sell his books? How about the hotels that host his events. Where does it end?"

Wisconsin Democrats Using "John Doe" Laws To Terrorize Conservatives

People had their lives DESTROYED...just for being conservative.
And it happened in the USA not some far flung country.

What is the average American citizen to do when those in authority trample on 1st Amendment rights? Further, what is a citizen to do when the police are “weaponized” to punish them for their political views? These are issues the voters and legislature in Wisconsin are now facing thanks to corrupt Democrat officials.

PAY-TO-PLAY: New accusations Clintons enriched themselves on Haiti earthquake

For Hillary Clinton, Scandals Have Achieved Critical Mass - IBD
Ethics: With each day, new revelations call into question Hillary Clinton's behavior during her tenure as secretary of state and after. It's time for her to suspend her campaign and start answering questions.

When even the left-wing media notice a leading Democrat's apparent ethical lapses, she has a real problem. And so does the Democratic Party, which as of now has all its bets for 2016 placed on Hillary Clinton, who, Peter Schweizer's upcoming book "Clinton Cash" suggests, may have engaged in corrupt behavior in office.
This would imply the extent of corruption is known. It's not. There is more to come. Think Cheryl Mills. - Join the discussion at Lucianne

From the comments: It´s not the critical mass of the scandals that matters. It´s the critical mass of the media´s criticism of the sordid mess that will make a difference. Will they do their job? Past history doesn´t offer too much reason for optimism.

But weird – and black comic – as everything is these days, the Clintons are an American greed story beyond Sinclair Lewis’ wildest imagination. The president who diddled an intern is the same dude as the ex-president who delivers speeches at $500,000 a pop in Moscow while his wife is making deals with their government.

...No, I don’t know how the “Voters for Hillary” got my cell number. (Yes, they’re real. They have a Facebook page). Maybe they just dial at random in California, figuring almost everyone’s a Hillary supporter. But it should be a warning, even though we already know it. A whole lot of people out there are clueless, even those working for candidates, and likely to remain so. I didn’t get into the 30,000 erased emails with this character but I doubt he would have heard of them. That the Clinton Foundation was suddenly refiling five years (or possibly the last decade) of taxes and that some $140 million in foreign donations had somehow mysteriously disappeared in the midst of the uranium sale would probably have gone flying over this dude’s head. One wonders if he would have cared....

Can you imagine what it will be like in this country if Hillary actually succeeds in getting elected after all this? We will have a president the majority of people think is a bald-faced liar to start with. Where does she go from there? She will have no way to recover the trust of the American people. It will never happen. We will live in a miserable, strange land as the globe goes to Hell (or continues to). If “liberals’” (or whatever they choose to call themselves) don’t replace her at this point, they hate us and themselves....

Mark Levin: Hillary uranium scandal BIGGER than any of her other crimes and unethical behaviors

This really has been the particular case of the Clinton Cash that bothers me the most and that should bother voters the most. We now have a uranium company that is control of 20 percent of the uranium mining in North America—that’s owned by the Russians. This deal had to be approved by Hillary Clinton and it turns out that the stockholders in that company gave $145 million to Hillary Clinton’s foundation. I can’t imagine how she could be a part of the decision-making process while she received so much money in her foundation—$145 million...."

Poll: Rubio leapfrogs Bush & Walker to lead the GOP pack

Dear Liberal Caller Who Thinks “Republicans Are Evil”…

A liberal friend of my home station called in and said, “The Republican party is evil, and must be destroyed.” - Steven Crowder/Louder With Crowder

To clarify, he’s not a close friend, but I have friends all across the political spectrum and felt it necessary to address. What I find fascinating is that this mindset is quite common on the left. I know lots of people on the right who want to defeat, politically, the actions and legislation of Democrats each election, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard it said that they must be “destroyed.” The Conservatives that I talk to regularly know that a system with checks and balances is imperative. It was put in place by the founding fathers for a reason....

The thing that bothers me the most is that this friend/caller says Republicans are “evil.” Some are incompetent, for sure… but typically, the Conservatives I know are anything but evil. I know a lovely woman who is homeschooling the brightest, most charming kids I’ve ever met. I know a young man who has a painting of the founding fathers on his office wall, right next to a painting of Jesus, and on the other wall, he has a magnificent photograph of a World War II bomber. He’s patriotic, he has faith, and he respects the Constitution. I don’t see that as evil… even if I am an agnostic, and don’t fully understand religion. The Conservatives I know donate to charities, they have calm discussions, and when they gather in public, they clean up after themselves. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

I know many very good people who are liberals too…however, liberals do have a very different outlook as to what is right and wrong. Even as an agnostic...

As the Russians assumed control of Uranium One, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation


The complete story is long, and very detailed. Democratic Party insiders have to be in a state of quiet panic that there aren’t any other serious and prepared candidates on the bench.

Obama delivers statement on hostage killings

“One unapologetic senator who I’ve had a few rounds with said, ‘If you’re not talking to terrorists, why are you worried?’” Paul said. “Have we fallen so low that that is our standard? If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear? It’s a long way from innocent until proven guilty.”

The libertarian-leaning Kentucky Republican, who launched a White House bid earlier in the month, noted that members of his own party support programs that allow the National Security Agency to collect the phone records of millions of Americans.

“Our Founding Fathers would be mortified,” Paul said during an awards ceremony hosted by the Constitution Project, a Washington think tank.

You have to watch this Robert Downey interview. It’s cringe-inducing

Not because of Downey, who’s very kind and handles it like a pro… but because of this liberal jackass reporter trying to corner the actor about his politics. - Steven Crowder/Louder With Crowder

...How do I know the interviewer is a liberal? Because I’ve given him interviews before. At the Value Voters Summit three years ago. He began asking increasingly bizarre questions. It was clear as day that he was aiming to paint me as a homophobe. When it didn’t work out, he continued on down the trail and my interviews never saw the light of day.

We see him doing the same thing here. This reporter doesn’t like Conservatives. Just look at his body of work and it’s clear. Here, he was at a press junket to talk with Robert Downey Jr. about “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Instead he found it necessary to dig up an old Robert Downey Jr. quote, and confront him about his politics. The funny thing is that there’s absolutely NOTHING offensive in Robert’s original quote… unless of course you’re a die-hard liberal.... (it starts at 3:56 in)
