From HUckFunn: Looks like this is it, folks. Grab some C-rats and bottled water and find your safe place. And turn off those killer air conditioners. Who knows, maybe this thing will blow over and turn out to be just another bad forecast.

Via Daily Mail:

In September, the world was warned apocalypse was coming when a rare ‘super blood moon eclipse’ filled the night sky.

Luckily for us, the world continued as it was. However a new YouTube video claims that the world will come to its catastrophic end today.

End Times Prophecies say that doomsday will occur as ‘the second coming of Jesus Christ coincides with a magnetic polar flip.’

The video, which has had over five million views, claims that a magnetic polar flip will trigger worldwide earthquakes and a ‘rolling cloud’ that will destroy the world.

Deep within the Earth, a fierce molten core is generating a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds.

FBI Warned Clinton Campaign Last Spring Of Cyberattack

Screen Shot 2016-07-29 at 10.08.42 PM

They also warned the DNC, who apparently didn’t do enough to address the issue.

Via Yahoo:

The FBI warned the Clinton campaign that it was a target of a cyberattack last March, just weeks before the Democratic National Committee discovered it had been penetrated by hackers it now believes were working for Russian intelligence, two sources who have been briefed on the matter told Yahoo News.

In a meeting with senior officials at the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters, FBI agents laid out concerns that cyberhackers had used so-called spear-phishing emails as part of an attempt to penetrate the campaign’s computers, the sources said. One of the sources said agents conducting a national security investigation asked the Clinton campaign to turn over internal computer logs as well as the personal email addresses of senior campaign officials. But the campaign, through its lawyers, declined to provide the data, deciding that the FBI’s request for sensitive personal and campaign information data was too broad and intrusive, the source said.

Friday doc dump…

Via The Hill:

The FBI has delivered “thousands of documents” to the State Department that it recovered during its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, CNN reports.

A court filing in a civil case related to Clinton’s server from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch said that the FBI plans to turn over more emails on Aug. 5, according to the news network.

The State Department will then again sort through the documents, determining which should be considered “agency records.” They’ve been expected to release them publicly on a rolling basis.

The FBI earlier this month said it would begin sending “several thousand” deleted work-related emails from Clinton’s private server to the State Department.

Whole lotta hacking going on…

Via Reuters:

The computer network used by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign was hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows reports of two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, and the party’s fundraising committee for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.

A Clinton campaign spokesman said in a statement late on Friday that an analytics data program maintained by the DNC and used by the campaign and a number of other entities “was accessed as part of the DNC hack.”

Ohio Concealed Carrier Saves Cop Pinned Down By Meth Addict; Receives Citizen Award of Valor…

OHIO CCW

Outstanding!

Via The Federalist:

Last year, an Ohio man with a concealed carry permit saved police officer Michael Wheeler’s life from the hands of a meth addict. On Wednesday, Wheeler, who serves in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, awarded his hero the city’s Citizen Award of Valor, Inside Edition reports.

The assailant, who later admitted to authorities he had been strung out on meth for several days, had been sleeping on a woman’s porch without permission when Wheeler confronted him. He attacked Wheeler, pinning him to the ground, and began grabbing at his belt in an attempt to get the officer’s gun. Wheeler, whose shoulder microphone was ripped off during the confrontation, was unable to call for backup.

During the struggle, Wheeler looked up and saw Dylan DeBoard, who announced he had a concealed carry permit and was pointing his weapon at the assailant. While the homeless man was distracted, Wheeler was able to get out from under him and handcuff him.

“I wish a lot more of society would do what he did,” Wheeler said. “There were people standing around, but they were just watching. I kept wondering why people didn’t do anything.”

Hillary Kicks Off Swing State Tour Vowing To Create Shovel Ready Jobs…

DEM 2016 Convention

Four more years!

Via WISTV:

With momentum still high from the historic Democratic convention, Hillary Clinton used her rally Friday to stress the “stark choice” voters will face between her and Republican rival Donald Trump when they vote in exactly 101 days.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that every election is important in its own way, but I can’t think of an election that was more important in my lifetime,” the Democrat told thousands of supporters in the first stop of a three-day bus tour through the Rust Belt battlegrounds of Pennsylvania and Ohio.

“It’s not so much that I’m on the ticket, it’s because of the stark choice that’s posed to Americans in this election,” she said.[…]

“I stayed up really late last night. It was just hard to go to sleep,” she told supporters gathered in a West Philadelphia arena, a short hop from the arena where Clinton delivered her acceptance speech Thursday night. “It was so exciting but I have to tell you it was also kind of overwhelming. I take deeply and with great humility the responsibility this campaign imposes on us.”

Clinton, accompanied by Kaine and their spouses, will use her bus trip to focus on economic opportunity, diversity and national security. Democrats hammered home those themes this week with an array of politicians, celebrities, gun-violence victims, law enforcement officers and activists of all sexual preferences and races.

Their goal is to turn out the coalition of minority, female and young voters that twice elected President Barack Obama while offsetting expected losses among the white male voters drawn to Trump’s message.

“As of tomorrow, we have 100 days to make our case to America,” she said.[..]

Kaine said “there’s still an awful lot of repair work” to be done on the economy, particularly with regard to job creation. But he insisted, “We don’t have a single issue in this country that we can’t tackle,” and said job creation would be the top priority if Clinton wins the White House.

The stakes are high: A loss to Trump would not only end Clinton’s political career, it could be a devastating coda to her and her husband’s political legacy and leave the Democratic Party weaker than it has been in a generation.

Report: Facebook Could Owe $5 Billion In Taxes…

Inside The F8 Facebook Developers Conference
Zuckerberg isn’t paying his fair share.

Via WACH:

Yes, that is billion with a “b.”

Facebook disclosed on Thursday that is could owe billions due to an IRS investigation into the way it moved assets to an Irish subsidiary to avoid higher taxes, CNN reports.

According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the tax penalty could be up to $5 billion plus interest.

The IRS investigation dates back to 2010 when Facebook shifted the rights for its worldwide business, excluding the U.S. and Canada, to Ireland as part of a “complex maneuver to reduce tax payments,” CNN says.

Facebook disagrees with the IRS and says they will file a petition with the United States tax court challenging the notice.

An investigator with the IRS alleges she issued six summons last month for Facebook to produce records related to the asset transfer and they failed to comply.

Earlier this week, the IRS disclosed that Facebook allegedly ignored a seventh summons as well.

Obama Regime Pays $342M To 10 Sanctuary Cities To Subvert Federal Requests For Illegal Aliens

Via Washington Examiner:

President Obama’s Justice Department has coughed up hundreds of millions of dollars to so-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse federal demands for criminal illegal immigrants sought for deportation, according to a new inspector general memo.

In just 10 of 155 jurisdictions reviewed, taxpayers handed over $342.1 million in Justice grants to the law-breaking cities and states that have policies barring jails and police from cooperating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The IG said that is 63 percent of the funds available to all American cities.

Weapons Stolen From Arms Room On US Military Base In Stuttgart, Germany…

Stuttgart

Back in the day, Arms Rooms were checked hourly.

Via Stars and Stripes:

Special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating the theft of guns and other military equipment from a base arms room in Stuttgart, military officials said.

“Several semi-automatic pistols, one small-caliber automatic rifle and a shotgun were among the items taken,” said Chris Grey, a CID spokesman.

The Army did not identify all the items stolen or the unit targeted, citing the active investigation. A possible breach of the base fence is also part of the ongoing probe.

“We are looking at all possibilities as the investigation continues, but at this point in the investigation it does not appear that an outside entity stole the firearms and equipment or breached the fence line, but we have not completely ruled it out,” Grey said.

A military official who was not authorized to speak to the media said that the site was Panzer, which also is home to elite units such as Army Green Berets and Navy SEALs, as well as the garrison’s headquarters.

The break-in, which occurred earlier this month, comes at a time of heightened security concerns in Germany in the wake of a wave of high-profile terrorist attacks. These include the July 23 suicide bombing in Ansbach by a Syrian migrant who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and the July 19 attack by an Afghan refugee, also claiming allegiance to the group, on a group of tourists on a train in Wuerzburg.

‘Reparations’ Site Invites White People To Give Free Stuff To Minorities

Screen Shot 2016-07-29 at 2.57.46 PM

Via Breitbart:

A new website inviting white people to provide minorities with free goods, services, and financial assistance as a means of “reparations” has been launched.

“Reparations.me” is a website that takes the principles of crowdsourcing and applies them to white liberal guilt. It invites minorities to request free stuff — ranging from favours and “emotional support” to money. It then invites white people (or “people who identify as white,” to use the website’s definition) to provide them.

Examples on the site include a request for free video games, for help covering tuition fees at the University of Pennsylvania, and, bizarrely, an offer to argue with white people on behalf of minorities.

The bloodthirsty jihadist who executed a Catholic priest in France “easily” passed a background check to become an airport baggage handler, according to a report.

Abdel Malik Petitjean, 19, worked full time at Chambéry Airport in the Savoie region, which is used by more than 250,000 passengers a year, until just three months ago, the Evening Standard reported.

He began working at the airport as a porter in December after completing his studies at the Lycée Marlioz, a high school in his hometown of Aix-les-Bains.

“Petitjean had no trouble getting through a police investigation and psychological evaluation,” a source told the paper.

Federal Appeals Court Deals Major Blow to North Carolina Voter ID Law

Screen Shot 2016-07-29 at 2.09.45 PM

RALEIGH, N.C. (TheBlaze/AP) — A federal appeals court has found that a North Carolina voter ID law was enacted “with discriminatory intent” and must be blocked.

An opinion issued Friday by a three-judge panel of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond reverses a lower-court’s ruling that had upheld the law.

The 2013 rewrite to voting laws in North Carolina required photo identification to cast in-person ballots and made other changes.

The U.S. Justice Department, state NAACP, League of Women Voters and others sued the state, saying the restrictions violated the remaining provisions of the federal Voting Rights Act and the Constitution.

The ruling comes just days after a federal appeals court in Louisiana found that the Lone Star State’s strict voter ID law also violated the Voting Rights Act and ordered the state to make changes before the November election.

California State Assembly To Proclaim August As “Muslim Appreciation And Awareness Month”…

(SACRAMENTO, CA, 7/29/16) – On Monday, August 11, the California chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-CA) will join Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) in the presentation of House Resolution 59, which recognizes the month of August 2016 as “Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month.”

“I am proud to celebrate the first ever Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month by honoring generations of Muslim Americans for their many social, cultural, and economic contributions to California,” Assemblymember Quirk stated. “The rhetoric surrounding this election makes the presentation of this resolution more important for me,” he said. “It is appropriate to acknowledge and promote awareness of the myriad invaluable contributions of Muslim Americans in California and across the country, and extend to them the respect and camaraderie every American deserves.”

Cory Booker: Polls Showing Trump’s Support Rising Among Gay Community Are “Terrifying”…

Cory Booker

Oh boy.

PHILADELPHIA — New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker is alarmed by polls that suggest GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is seeing a rise in support from the gay community.

“That’s terrifying,” Booker told the Washington Examiner after the Democratic National Convention. “Donald Trump probably picked one of the most anti-gay vice presidential candidates we’ve had in a long time.”

Booker said Gov. Mike Pence, R-Ind., has been at the forefront of leading efforts he said unfairly discriminate against members of the LGBT community. The New Jersey senator went on to argue why he believes the Democratic Party is best for the gay community.

“Clearly we are the party of civil rights, worker’s rights, women’s rights and definitely gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights,” Booker said.
