Parts across the Northeast United States are bracing for record cold temperatures on Thanksgiving Day, meteorologists say.

Western Massachusetts to Albany, New York, is expected to receive bouts of snow ranging from 2 to 4 inches, while other cities may see nearly 6 inches. Parts of southern Vermont and Maine are also likely to see snowfall, while Buffalo to Waters could see snow showers. “Thanksgiving Day is going to be frigid, with wind chills in the Northeast below zero and in the teens from Washington, D.C., to Pittsburgh to Philadelphia. Record lows are expected throughout the region, with daytime temperatures forecast to be 20 to 35 degrees below normal. Temps should return to normal by the weekend,” ABC News reports.

From Wednesday night to Friday, badly needed rain showers will are expected to fall in parts of Northern California, prompting a flood watch warning. Officials are hopeful the rain will help contain the Camp Fire, which thus far has killed at least 81 people. Some worry excess rain may cause deadly mudslides. Los Angeles to Seattle is expected to see rainfall throughout Wednesday, while Sierra Nevadas could receive 6 to 15 inches of snow in the evening, making commuting through the area difficult for many.

America is About to Face an Invasion


There’s a ‘caravan’ of people coming up from Mexico. The fake-stream media calls them a caravan because that sounds more benign, but they’re actually illegal alien invaders and should be called that. Such invasions have occurred non-stop for many decades now. Millions of illegal aliens live in this country already. Nothing was done to deport them. Many were given amnesty. Not enforcing our border law has consequences and we’re seeing it now in the form of perpetual invasions.

The current invasion force numbers are growing and we don’t know who they are. If they are allowed in, some will commit heinous crimes. Some may be terrorists from the Middle East. All will most likely get on the dole. They’re coming for free stuff. They want free food, free housing, free medical care, free driver licenses, and free education. California will allow them to freely vote and they will vote for those pushing more free stuff—the Democratic Socialists. Read the rest of this article at grrrgraphics.com.

The Last Straw

The irony of the plastic straw ban

by Adriana Cohen

You know you’re a misguided environmentalist if you support banning plastic straws — the latest enviro craze sweeping the nation — while still consuming trendy Frappuccino-like drinks contained in big ol’ plastic cups.

Cups that also have plastic lids.

Has it ever occurred to enviro “elites,” who never hesitate to ban any product they dislike, that the plastic cups they routinely use will end up in the same landfill or ocean as those plastic straws?

Perhaps the extremist crowd in Santa Barbara, a city that has criminalized the use of plastic straws and will jail and fine offenders, hasn’t noticed that the single-use plastic cups they buy and chuck everyday from their local coffee joint has a significantly bigger plastic load than the little plastic straws and stirrers they want to keep out of the ocean. The same goes for all the juices, soft drinks and other beverages contained in plastic that they continue to consume — not to mention scores of other plastic products they purchase across industries.

Do facts matter, or are “banners” more interested in “feel-good” symbolic environmentalism than actually curtailing marine pollution? Read the rest of this article at heraldextra.com.

DeSantis Rising: Florida Congressman Now the Sunshine State GOP Gubernatorial Frontrunner


by Jeff Poor

JACKSONVILLE, Florida – With just over a month to go until Florida Republicans vote to select their nominee for the governor’s race, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is pulling ahead of Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, according to recent polling data.

Past polling showed DeSantis trailing Putnam by a wide margin. One poll from June 21, conucted by Fox News, had DeSantis down by 15 points.

This month’s polling, however, shows the trend is decidedly in DeSantis’ favor. A survey from Remington Research conducted July 2-5 has DeSantis up 17 points. Another survey conducted by pollster Tony Fabrizio has DeSantis up 12 points.

According to the Real Clear Politics polling average, which includes the Fox News poll showing Putnam with a double-digit lead, DeSantis has a 2.7 percent edge over Putnam as it stands now.

At a campaign meet-and-greet–with a visibly pro-Donald Trump vibe–just south of downtown Jacksonville on Saturday morning, DeSantis offered Breitbart News his reasons for the surge.

“I think it’s a number of things,” he said. “I think it’s a strong contrast between me and my opponent. Adam Putnam is a career politician. He’s been in office since he was 22, and he’s been an insider transactional Republican. I’m somebody who is an Iraq veteran, a military officer – somebody who has really fought entrenched interests and has stood on principle. Those records are clear.”

“He was somebody that was very hostile to Trump down the stretch against Hillary Clinton, and if he had his way, Hillary would have won,” DeSantis added. “I’m somebody that’s been endorsed by the president, so it’s a big contrast.”

Trump has voiced his support for DeSantis on two occasions and going back as far as last December. Read the rest of this article HERE.

EU Statement Opposing U.S. Embassy Move is Blocked

Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania, in coordination with Israel, today blocked a joint EU statement criticizing the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, Israeli officials and European diplomats told me.

Behind the scenes: The initiative to publish the statement was led by France and several other EU member states. Israeli officials say the goal was to present to the U.S. a common position against the move by all 28 member states, and to embarrass and isolate the Trump administration ahead of Monday’s ceremony.

According to European diplomats and Israeli officials, the draft statement circulated in European capitals had three points:

  1. Jerusalem should be the capital of both states — Israel and the future state of Palestine.
  2. The final status of Jerusalem should be negotiated and only determined through negotiations between the parties.
  3. The member states of the EU will not follow the U.S. and will not move their embassies to Jerusalem.

Trump Ends Obama’s Iran Deal (and His Legacy)

www.grrrgraphics.com

By Joel Pollak

President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the U.S. is leaving the Iran deal marks the end of what his predecessor, Barack Obama, considered his main foreign policy legacy.

Trump will earn credit from his supporters for keeping his promise. But in truth, the Iran deal was undone by its own terms. It did not stop Iran from enriching uranium; it did not stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon, eventually; and it did not stop Iran’s global aggression.

In fact, the Iran deal was not even a deal at all.

It was never signed by any of the parties (the U.S., Iran, France, the UK, Germany, China, and Russia). It was unclear about crucial subjects like ballistic missiles, because the “deal” was described differently by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and by the UN Security Council Resolutions that were meant to implement it. And, crucially, it was never sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
