Head of Spokane NAACP quits amid furor over racial identity

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Rachel Dolezal resigned as president of the NAACP’s Spokane chapter Monday just days after her parents said she is a white woman posing as black — a dizzyingly swift fall for an activist credited with injecting remarkable new energy into the civil rights organization. SOURCE

‘Brown ocean’ effect may bedevil soggy Texas as storm nears

‘Brown ocean’ effect may bedevil soggy Texas as storm nears

DALLAS (AP) — The historic rainfall that inundated Texas in May continues to leave the soil saturated and rivers engorged, but a scientist involved in a NASA-funded research project says it also could strengthen a storm moving inland from the Gulf of Mexico.

A broad area of low pressure that developed near the Yucatan Peninsula could brew nasty weather along the Texas and Louisiana coasts and inland. These low-pressure systems can become tropical storms that gather power from the warm waters of the ocean, and then weaken once they move over land.

But the research has found some storms can actually strengthen over land by drawing from the evaporation of abundant soil moisture, a phenomenon known as the “brown ocean” effect, according to Marshall Shepherd, director of atmospheric sciences at the University of Georgia.

“All the things a hurricane likes over the ocean is what we have over land right now,” said Shepherd, one of the principals who conducted the research. SOURCE

So, I show this to my neighbor, the one that waters his yard 7 days a week, even when we were under severe water restrictions, and he says, “You don’t believe this crap do you?”

I guess over the next few days we’ll find out, here’s the latest forecast.

The approaching storm

Mr. Alan Caruba Oct. 9, 1937 — June 15, 2015

Alan CarubaMr. Alan Caruba Oct. 9, 1937 — June 15, 2015

Today the world lost a great writer and Patriot, a Veteran of the United States Army, and a true gentleman with a wit that was unmatched. Alan Caruba was the author of Warning Signs, his blog, and with that blog he taught many aspiring bloggers how to do it right! I was one of those individuals.

Alan Caruba was my friend and mentor, he was my sounding board, he was the reason I kept on blogging when I felt that there was nothing left to say and that folks like us were only *preaching to the choir*, but most of all, Alan Caruba was my FRIEND and I loved that gentleman as if he were my father.

Today I am truly heartbroken.

Alan Caruba was an American public relations counselor and freelance writer who is a frequent critic of environmentalism, Islam, homosexuality and research on global warming.

Career — In the late 1970s Caruba founded the PR firm The Caruba Organization, and in 1990, the National Anxiety Center, which identifies itself as “a clearinghouse for information about ‘scare campaigns’ designed to influence public policy and opinion” on such subjects as global warming, ozone depletion and DDT. From 1984 until 2004, he ran The Boring Institute, a “spoof” satirizing the media by releasing annual lists of the year’s “boring” celebrities. From 1994 until 2004, he was director of communications for the American Policy Center. He is an adjunct scholar at the Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise, a wise use think tank in Bellevue, Washington. Continue reading

‘They finally broke him,’ dad says of gunman plagued by mental illness

‘They finally broke him,’ dad says of gunman plagued by mental illness

James BoulwareJames Boulware was lashing out in rage long before the attack on Dallas police headquarters early Saturday.

Besides a history of domestic strife, he was accused of threatening the judge who presided over his custody battle against his own mother.

His father said Boulware’s explosive violence Saturday was the culmination of blaming authorities for taking his 11-year-old son away from him.

In April, the boy’s grandmother was granted custody. On Monday, the judge in the case signed the final order, but Boulware was not in court. SOURCE

*He wasn’t ALL bad…*

Well, he’s not *all bad* now. He’s been shot, field dressed, fricasseed and he’s no longer suffering mental illness either.

How many times do we hear that said about all violent criminals? *But he was a good boy…* and then they throw in the *disclaimer*, “Well sure, he was a pimp, a rapist, an armed robber and a dope dealer but he was a good boy and loved his Mama and Daddy…”

I guess that makes it all OK if he loved his Mama and Daddy. But wait, he abused his Mama too …

Oh no!

Latest: Van where Dallas suspect found dead catches on fire

Latest: Van where Dallas suspect found dead catches on fire

The van where a suspect in the Dallas police headquarters shooting was found dead has caught fire and ammunition rounds are going off inside the vehicle.

Dallas police say in a Twitter post that the fire erupted when they used robots to clear the van of weapons such as pipe bombs. SOURCE

James Boulware

The van DID catch fire, but I am guessing that was because of the explosive devices being used in a deliberate attempt to detonate any remaining bombs that may have remained in the van, thus protecting Police Officers.

Was the body out of the van BEFORE it burned? I don’t think so, I really don’t care, you see, quite likely there was NO body, or not much of one anyway. I was told that the Police sniper had disabled the vehicles motor with a round from a .50 Barrett Rifle, and then disabled the attacker, Boulware, with a round from the .50 Barrett.

Best line of the day? AwwwwwHe went to Barrett. 😈
