Video catches Tuscaloosa tornado as it passes overhead

Published

on

The massive tornados that hit Tuscaloosa, Alabama nearly a month ago, on April 27, produced a number of stunning videos — but none of them hold a candle to this one.

In the latest clip, one unlucky filmmaker gazes upon the funnel as it literally passes over the top of his residence. Thankfully, nobody appeared to be injured.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for others state-wide. The tornado outbreak last month caused a total of 238 deaths, authorities said. It was Alabama’s worst natural disaster since tornadoes killed over 300 people in 1932.

This video is from YouTube user MrEverduarte.

Donald Trump is a living, breathing national emergency. Our president has repeatedly encouraged violence against his perceived enemies — and at least some of his supporters are following his lead. These are not isolated incidents. There are dozens of court cases where Donald Trump has been cited for "inspiring" acts of violence and other crimes. There are also the most odious examples such as the recent white supremacist terror attack in El Paso in which the alleged mass murderer wrote an online "manifesto" that almost verbatim channeled Trump's threatening rhetoric towards nonwhite people.

Is Trump’s love affair with Fox News fading?

Published

on

Last month after Donald Trump watched Fox News lob what he called "softball questions" at a Democratic lawmaker, the US president delivered a crisp smackdown of his favorite network: "Fox sure ain't what it used to be."

After years of often fawning coverage by Fox, particularly from its pro-Trump anchors like Sean Hannity, the commander in chief appears to be tilting his media gaze toward a younger, more right-wing rival, cable outfit One America News Network (OANN).

The small upstart broadcaster was launched only recently, in 2013, by technology millionaire Robert Herring, who sought a more conservative alternative to mainstream media behemoths like CNN.

Workers were ordered not to protest or show any ‘resistance’ at Trump rally in Pennsylvania

Published

Workers in attendance at President Donald Trump's rally at a Shell plant in Pennsylvania on Tuesday were ordered not to protest or do "anything viewed as resistance" during the event.

That's according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which reported late Friday on the strict instructions employees were given by their bosses ahead of the event.

"No yelling, shouting, protesting, or anything viewed as resistance will be tolerated at the event," read orders from one contractor. "An underlying theme of the event is to promote good will from the unions. Your building trades leaders and jobs stewards have agreed to this."
