'The most dangerous storm in history': Threatening up to TEN MILLION people

The strongest hurricane to ever hit the Pacific coast has slammed into western Mexico this evening as thousands of tourists desperately tried to flee.
Hurricane Patricia made landfall with wind speeds of 165mph as it tore through the town of Emiliano Zapato in Jalisco state, according to officials.

It is now expected to slowly move north west, laying waste to towns and villages in its path. Forecasters said the hurricane's wind speed would slow once it reached land but there were still 160mph gusts as of 9pm.

Holidaymakers evacuated earlier today as forecasters said the storm would bring 200mph winds, 40ft waves, deadly mudslides and dump up to 20 inches of rain on parts of Mexico.

Category 5 storm Patricia is the strongest recorded hurricane in history, with the US National Hurricane Center measuring 201mph sustained winds before it hit land and the lowest recorded atmospheric pressure of 880mb.

House votes to repeal key pieces Obamacare

Lawmakers approved the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act in a 240-189 vote that saw all but one Democrat vote against the measure, along with seven Republicans.

The bill would eliminate the individual and employer health insurance mandates, the 2.3 percent medical device tax, and the tax on "Cadillac" health care plans. It would kill off a public health fund under Obamacare that the GOP has said is a "slush fund" for the Obama administration.

And, importantly for many Republicans, it would also impose a one-year moratorium on federal funding for Planned Parenthood. That group is being investigated after a series of videos suggesting that the group may be profiting from the sale of fetal remains.

Jeb Bush Is Toast, And other insights from third-quarter fundraising reports

Removing senior staff, canceling fundraisers...

...Jeb Bush has almost no chance of being the GOP nominee, owing to a near-complete lack of support from the GOP’s rank-and-file donors.

John Kasich, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, Lindsey Graham, and George Pataki also have almost no chance of being the GOP nominee, much less of winning the general election. That doesn’t mean it is impossible that one could do well in Iowa or New Hampshire. Nor does it mean that they should drop out, or that they are bad candidates, or that they might not have a significant effect through their presence on the nominating process. But from their early fundraising, it is clear that they will not have the grassroots support, money, or organization to win the general election, especially against what is still a very deep field....

Contrary to media narratives, Ted Cruz looks to be in the strongest position to win the nomination, given the fundraising data. The one major wild card in that analysis is Donald Trump, currently by far the leader in GOP polling. His support base overlaps in some ways with Cruz’s. He hasn’t fundraised actively, so it is difficult to draw firm conclusions, but it seems likely that he would be a very strong in both major-donor and grassroots fundraising. He looks like the favorite, but the party establishment, as well as a significant number of conservative activists, are set against him. He’s a unique candidate with unique positioning, and therefore he is uniquely challenging to quantify using traditional measurements.

Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio could still win the nomination. But compared with past successful nominees, they have substantial fundraising and strategic weaknesses right now....

It’s human nature to “judge a book by its cover,” even when it comes to such hot-topic issues as political affiliation. But how accurate are our snap judgments about others?

What to expect at next week's GOP debate

CNBC’s “Your Money, Your Vote” debate, will be focused on monetary and economic policy. The debate will once again be separated into two tiers.
Candidates that hold an average of at least 3 percent in major polls will be included in the primetime debate.

The debate will be held at the University of Colorado Boulder.

UC students have made national headlines for plans to hold their own broadcast focused on millennial engagement. Student Voices Count, a group that has called on event organizers to open up seating to more students, will be sponsoring the broadcast that, they say, will feature journalists from around the country.

The Student Voices Count group told Red Alert Politics that both the Boulder County Republicans and Democrats have signed a joint letter supporting the group.

OUCH! Jim Webb drops pres bid; What did he REALLY say to Dems? (Truth hurts, libs)

"I fully accept that my views on many issues are not compatible with the power structure and the nominating base of the Democratic Party," Webb told reporters at the National Press Club in Washington. The current Democratic hierarchy, he said, "is not comfortable with many of the policies laid forth, and frankly I am not that comfortable with many of theirs."

..."The Democratic Party is heavily invested in interest-group politics," he said, and that could exclude groups it means to include...

That one photo says it all. THAT is what you want, Democrats? Apparently, yes. Here’s more from National Review:

The Thursday night debate conclusion: America now has an openly socialist party. This morning, a new poll confirms it: Socialism remains less popular than capitalism in the United States: only 25% of adults have a favorable opinion of it, while 48% view capitalism positively. Among Democrats, however, the balance is flipped, with 49% favorable to socialism compared to 37% for capitalism. Which party is extreme again? Which party is out of touch with the rest of the country?

Ding, ding, ding! Tell us again that WE are the wing nutty wing nuts with wings, Dems.

"Had it not been for Trey Gowdy, we would never have known about the server, the lies, the emails and the danger zone you allowed to our national security," Judge Jeanine said. "To all the critics out there: let Trey Gowdy do his job."

Dear Mr. Cummings:

Thank you for your early Sunday morning letter. I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

As you know our Committee is not investigating Secretary Clinton or allegations surrounding the handling of classified or otherwise protected information. Other entities may be investigating matters related thereto, but we are not. This is best evidenced by the fact our Committee has not issued a single subpoena related to her email arrangement or server or any aspect surrounding allegations of mishandling classified or otherwise protected information. Moreover, as you know out of the 54 interviews conducted by the Committee precisely one (1) has been related to her server and that interview - as you recall - was very short because the witness invoked his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination. In fact, after the media - not our Committee, but the media - broke the news of her exclusive use of private email and her use of a personal server in early March of 2015, the next 21 witness interviews in a row had nothing to do with Clinton or her email. This hardly evidences your baseless allegations of a "pivot" toward the Secretary or her email. What broke that string of 21 interviews in a row unrelated to any aspect of her email was the June 16, 2015 deposition of Sidney Blumenthal, which is discussed below.....

PS: I am envious of your staff's ability to get information from this administration in less than 45 minutes on a weekend. This is something the majority Members struggle to do on weekdays. Perhaps you would be willing to help us gain access to the information the Committee has been seeking from the administration for over half a year now.

This is a family that commodifies everything, from sex tapes to fertility treatments to Caitlyn Jenner’s transition.

As former NBA star Lamar Odom clings to life in a Las Vegas hospital, his soon-to-be ex-wife Khloe Kardashian and her clan have done what they do best: make the story all about them.
Before the Kardashians even made it to the hospital, there was no dignity here. Odom was found on Tuesday unconscious and face down in a Nevada brothel, choking on his own mucus, damage to his lungs from crack cocaine and track marks on his arms. He’d spent four days and $75,000 there, in a grim whorehouse that most closely resembles a Marriott....

...The Kardashians, said the source, “have blood on their hands.”

It’s a well-established pattern of abusive behavior for the Kardashians, who have built a $100 million empire on mining their lives — while shamelessly exploiting others — for entertainment.

Odom — who once confessed to the LA Times that, emotionally, “I consider myself a little weak” — was no match for a family who casually and consistently trails human wreckage in their wake.
