A video shared on Youtube by Tamara Smith on Oct. 12 shows horrifying scenes as two people try to escape the wildfire in Loma Rica, California. The dramatic video has two men trying to escape the dangerous circumstances of a wildfire.
The footage starts with the man driving asking his fellow passenger to get out of the car and open a gate so that they can escape the harrowing fire. As soon as the man sitting in the passenger seat gets out, he can be heard shouting that he has trouble breathing because of the smoke, after which he gets back in the car and asks his friend to drive away quickly.
The recording is being done by the man sitting in the passenger seat who tells the driver that it is going to get hard to breathe. The vehicle they are driving in is identified by the driver as a Ford Expedition, as he can be heard saying, “Come on Expedition baby, you can do it, girl.”
At one point in the clip, the man driving can be heard suggesting going back but his friend refuses and asks him to escape the fire and not stop before they get out of there, “We almost got killed, man,” he says. The rest of the video shows how the two men despite under critical conditions, escape by driving their car through the nearest gate, away from the fire and the smoke quite heroically.
Melted cars. Mangled homes. Shocking drone footage shows communities of ashes created by California wildfires.

[Madison, Wis…] In response to a fellow student who said a campus rape could have been prevented by concealed carry, protesters wielding penis-shaped sex toys refused to answer her, and then shouted her down at Tuesday’s speech by Townhall editor Katie Pavlich on the UW-Madison campus.
The student told protesters that she has a friend who was raped, a crime that would have been prevented if her friend was able to carry her concealed weapon. After a brief silence, protesters responded by waving dildos in the air and shouting “this is what Democracy looks like” and “Cocks not Glocks.”
Inside, Pavlich told a polite, standing-room-only audience that allowing concealed carry on campus would allow young women to defend themselves in dangerous situations.
A group calling itself “Cocks Not Glocks” arranged the protest, the “Bonerfide Penis Arts Festival” in response to Pavlich’s pro-Second Amendment message.
Transgendered woman and alleged model Munroe Bergdorf attacks all white people for being racists, have white privilege, and basically any "coloured person" (sic) are not racist, only whites are racist. This person did NO favours to the cause of anti-racism by labelling EVERYTHING racist. The power of the word racist / racism has nearly disappeared because of left + snowflakes over-use of the word.
Almost every day some mainstream media reporter breaks a story about how the White House is in meltdown and the only thing standing between the nation and the abyss is Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly.
Depending which “scoop” you are reading, Trump also is about to fire Kelly or Kelly’s about to quit or Kelly is staying to protect the nation from Trump.
These scoops create a media and political frenzy that have anti-Trump politicians and media talking about invoking the 25th Amendment or some other type of intervention.
It all makes for good theater. It’s the same phenomenon I reported on when Russia was the hot media topic – a steady flow of anonymously sourced unverifiable accusations of impending doom.
In this entire media feeding frenzy, Kelly uniformly is presented as the adult in the room, the one honest person (in addition to Gen. Mattis) in the White House.
Well guess what. That one honest man just said those media reports are full of s***. Of course, he didn’t use that word, but I think that’s a fair paraphrase of what he said.
The Trump administration is claiming that they worked with Pakistan to free the family.
MSNBC’s Hans Nichols reported Thursday that President Trump’s administration had secured the release of an American family held captive by the Taliban.
“We just heard, moments ago, from President Donald Trump claiming credit, saying that the United States government, working with the Pakistani government, secured the release of this family,” Nichols said.
The American family has been handed over to U.S. authorities and ready to head home.
However, Nichols said that it was not clear how Pakistan was involved in the release, given many Trump administration officials’ distrust of the country.
Trump is making a habit of securing the release of U.S. hostages. In April, the president convinced Egypt to release American aid worker Aya Hijazi.
His administration also brought home student Otto Warmbier from North Korea, before he tragically died.
As the industry expresses its outrage against sexual harassment following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, social media has dug up footage of Aquaman and Justice League actor Jason Momoa making a joking reference to rape six years ago during a Comic-Con Game of Thrones panel. The actor quickly apologized on Instagram last night and we hear that there are no plans by Warner Bros. to hide the actor during any upcoming Justice League promotional appearances or interviews.
“I awoke in Australia to the justified reactions by many people to a distasteful joke I made years ago in Hall H for which I am sorry. I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those hurtful words. Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends. I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I said,” wrote Momoa on Instagram.
In regards to Momoa’s original joke at Comic-Con during the Game of Thrones panel he said, “As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it, and rape beautiful women.” It was that clip that went viral.
Momoa previously told the New York Post about his discomfort in shooting the rape scenes with his onscreen wife Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke.
“I’m raping Emilia [Clarke, who plays Daenerys]. I love her, but I’m hurting her and she’s crying. We could have made it longer, but you get the idea,” said Momoa, “I’m not a rapist! I prefer my women to enjoy sex … Just do whatever your woman wants, and you’ll be fine.”
Students aggressively mock, harass Charles Murray at UMich
Charles Murray’s event at the University of Michigan was completely overthrown by student protesters, who occupied the auditorium and loudly interrupted Murray for 40 minutes before sauntering out of the room.
The event, set to begin at 6:00 p.m. EST, was immediately shut down by protesters before Murray even was given a chance to begin as one demonstrator projected a “white supremacist” hologram above his head.
“Charles Murray go away; sexist, racist, KKK! Charles Murray go away; sexist, racist KKK!,” protesters continually shouted, seemingly occupying the majority of the seats in the venue, according to a live stream of the event provided by the school’s College Republicans chapter who hosted the event.
At one point a man who identified himself as the school’s director of public affairs took the microphone while attempting to ask student protesters to remain quiet.
“We’ve been silent too long!” protesters repeatedly shouted in response, with another yelling “stop silencing students of color!”
The administrator appeared to continue delivering the statement he had come make, but was drowned out by protesters, who took to remarking on the presence of police officers in the auditorium.
Until protesters left the venue, Murray was allowed only brief periods to speak, as one protester took to the stage to ask him a question.
“Do you not understand that your book undermines our very means of speaking?” one protester asked as he walked up on stage to confront Murray personally, mocking Murray’s commitment to free speech.

The president is unhappy with the network’s reporting on the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
President Trump called NBC “fake news” for their report on nuclear weapons in remarks to the press from the Oval Office on Wednesday.
NBC reported earlier Wednesday that the president had asked for a tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear stockpile:
President Donald Trump said he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a gathering this past summer of the nation’s highest-ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room.
Trump’s comments, the officials said, came in response to a briefing slide he was shown that charted the steady reduction of U.S. nuclear weapons since the late 1960s. Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve.
“That was just fake news by NBC, which gives a lot of fake news lately,” he said.
Trump denied that he ever asked for such an increase in the arsenal. Instead, he said that he only asked for modernization of the stockpile.
“It’s frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write,” he added.
Colorado school teachers in at least one small town will now be permitted to carry guns in school in order to protect their students, their co-workers and themselves.
School officials in Briggsdale voted to approve the concealed carry of handguns for teachers, providing the educators participate in ongoing training.
Unfortunately for teachers in Wisconsin, they won’t be afforded the same self-defense protections. A bill to allow retired and off-duty police officers to carry concealed weapons at schools will not be put up for a vote.
Teachers at the Colorado school must agree to going to the firing range and shooting at least 100 rounds per month in order to remain in compliance with the guns-in-the-classroom program. Of course, firing 100 rounds just once per month is both an affordable and enjoyable training task for the majority of gun owners.
Briggsdale Superintendent Rick Mondt told local media that the rural location of the school makes arming teachers important. The school is about 20 minutes away from a police station.
CNN’s Dana Bash and Chris Cillizza both thought the Obamas’ silence on Weinstein was odd.
Following Hillary Clinton’s response to allegations of sexual harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, CNN’s Dana Bash and Chris Cillizza wondered why the Obamas have remained silent about Weinstein.
“The other question is where are the Obamas? Where is Michelle Obama? Where is President Obama?” Bash asked. “I mean, it makes no sense at all that they are not coming out and saying something, nevermind the question of the donations.”
Cillizza then noted that there would be a huge outcry from Democrats if this had been a Republican donor who acted like Weinstein and top Republicans like former President George W. Bush didn’t respond to the allegations.
“The issue is this is behavior that rightly should be condemned. When you are the two most prominent faces in the Democrat Party, and they still are, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the fact it went five days with not a word, I guess, I’m echoing Dana: just odd,” Cillizza concluded.
A custodian at Merrimack High School makes kids smile every week by waiting at the door to high five them as they walk into the building.
Jodie Wedge Cole, who works at the high school, said she has been watching Kevin Freeman's weekly routine outside her office every week and asked him on Friday if she could post a video on Facebook.
“He’s just a great guy who really cares about the kids. I’ve been watching him do this outside my office every week,” Cole said.
"What can I say, I loooooove my job," Freeman commented on the post.
One Russian-linked campaign posing as part of the Black Lives Matter movement used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Pokémon Go and even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN has learned.
The campaign, titled “Don’t Shoot Us,” offers new insights into how Russian agents created a broad online ecosystem where divisive political messages were reinforced across multiple platforms, amplifying a campaign that appears to have been run from one source — the shadowy, Kremlin-linked troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency.
A source familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN that the Don’t Shoot Us Facebook page was one of the 470 accounts taken down after the company determined they were linked to the IRA. CNN has separately established the links between the Facebook page and the other Don’t Shoot Us accounts.
The Don’t Shoot Us campaign — the title of which may have referenced the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan that became popular in the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown — used these platforms to highlight incidents of alleged police brutality, with what may have been the dual goal of galvanizing African Americans to protest and encouraging other Americans to view black activism as a rising threat.
A man accused of killing a South Carolina high school student had been protected from deportation under the DACA program, U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News Thursday evening.
Daniel De Jesus Rangel-Sherrer, 19, is accused of murder, kidnapping and possession of a weapon during a violent crime in connection with the death of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez.
Martinez-Gonzalez, a junior at Greenville High School, was found dead in a wooded area Oct. 4. Officials said she had been forced into the woods and shot multiple times in the head.
"Immediately upon contact, [Rangel-Sherrer] confessed to one of the deputies," Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis told reporters.
Investigators said a friend of Martinez-Gonzalez was also held against her will by the suspect, but she managed to escape and contact authorities. It's not clear how Rangel-Sherrer and Martinez-Gonzalez knew each other.
On Tuesday's episode of MSNBC's "Deadline White House," host Nicolle Wallace said the Second Amendment was intended to help fight against "foreign militias," not to create an "armed population" while interviewing gun-control activists.
Wallace used New York Times columnist Bret Stephens recent op-ed calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment as a jumping-off point while interviewing John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, and actress Julianne Moore. "A conservative wrote a piece last week that got a lot of attention about maybe opening up the conversation about the Second Amendment," Wallace said. "His name is Bret Stephens, and he said the intellectually honest way to have this debate is to say that this isn't what was intended, that we're an armed population. This was a right to bear arms against foreign militias."
Stephens, however, does not claim in his column that the Second Amendment was not intended to mean America should be an armed population or that it doesn't protect a right to arms. Stephens instead recognizes the right and argues that the protection of it should be repealed. "I wonder what Madison would have to say about that today, when more than twice as many Americans perished last year at the hands of their fellows as died in battle during the entire Revolutionary War," Stephens wrote. "My guess: Take the guns—or at least the presumptive right to them—away."
Additionally, though the Second Amendment says "a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State," it does not mention "foreign militias." Instead, it specifically reads "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Feinblatt responded to Wallace's question by saying he believed the Supreme Court should reconsider its 2008 ruling in Heller vs D.C., which confirmed the Second Amendment's protection of individual gun ownership, and pointed out that the Court stated certain regulations of gun rights remains constitutional.
"Look, there's no doubt that I think the Second Amendment decision ought to be looked at but we also ought to look at the decision itself," he said. "The NRA tries to characterize it as an absolute right but Rehnquist went out of his way in writing that decision that says it's actually the Second Amendment is subject to reasonable regulation."
Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the opinion for the Court in that case, not William Rehnquist. William Rehnquist's tenure at the Supreme Court ended three years earlier when he passed away on September 3, 2005.
Boynton Beach police have released the body camera video of what they say is two moms overdosing with their one and two month old babies in the back seat. WPTV was first to request the video.
The British-built Sentinel-5P satellite, which could saves thousands of deaths caused by pollution, has been launched in to orbit today. There were cheers at the European Space Agency’s technical hub in the Netherlands when the £50 million satellite successfully communicated with Earth at 12.01pm UK time. The satellite has been nine years in planning and was built at the Airbus factory in Stevenage. It will now provide rapid accurate pollution data which could prevent thousands of early deaths each year by tracking deadly smog clouds. There was a hushed silence as the Sentinel-5P was launched at 10.27am UK time from a remote location in northern Russia on a missile built to carry a nuclear warhead. There then followed around an hour and a half when space scientists had no way of knowing where the unmanned aircraft was, and if it was on track to successfully enter the Earth’s orbit.
An attempted robbery in Detroit didn't go as planned for the suspect, when the intended victim pulled out a gun and started shooting in defense. A Concealed Pistol License holder acted quickly, pulled his gun and shot the armed suspect to end the threat. Police told the CPL holder it was a good thing he was legally armed or he and his cousin may not be alive today.

Earlier this month, 41-year-old Robert Pattison went to introduce himself to his fellow firefighters at Engine 55 at Joy and Southfield in Detroit. Second Battalion Chief Shawn McCarty calls it a tradition for firefighters.
"It's not mandatory, it's voluntary," he says. "You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in."
And Pattison, a probationary firefighter, decided to bring a watermelon wrapped in a pink ribbon. We're told some African-American firefighters were instantly offended, since 90 percent of the people who work at Engine 55 are black.
"When you get your first detail at a firehouse you pretty much know what you are getting yourself into," says Patrick Trout. "So you would have to say it was probably a bad call."

This is the moment police and firefighters "drive into hell" as they battle wildfires which have claimed the lives of 23 people. The huge fires are raging across California and have reduced entire neighbourhoods to ash as the "flames are moving faster than firefighters can run".

BEN Affleck has offered an extraordinary apology after a former MTV host-turned-actress claimed he groped her breasts on television.
Actress and TV host Hilarie Burton was just 21 when she says she was groped by Affleck during an interview on MTV's TRL. The incident has shone a light on Affleck's other past bad behaviour - including a different, bizarre 2004 interview that saw Affleck encouraging another interviewer to show him her breasts.
In a Sunday morning junket interview to promote his film Jersey Girl, Affleck and Canadian TV presenter Anne-Marie Losique could be seen embracing each other, the TV host straddling the actor and writhing on his lap as he embraces her.
“They would like the show better if you did it topless, wouldn’t they?” he asks. “That’s a lovely perfume you have on. You usually show a lot more cleavage than this, what’s the story?”
“It’s Sunday morning,” she responds.
“That never stopped you before, from getting them t**ties out. Who you trying to fool, Sunday morning? You should be in church with that rack on display.”
The pair continue their heavy petting as Affleck complements Losique on her “firm breasts” and asks if she has a boyfriend “back in Montreal.”
Later on in the segment, Affleck makes an off-colour joke about the disabled.
“Don’t make me look like I am retarded! I look like I have cerebral palsy now,” he said, before mocking a disabled person.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Gerald McCoy, speaking on Adam Schefter's Know Them From Adam podcast, said he thinks there might "be an uproar" if NFL players are forced to stand for the national anthem.
"I don't think guys are gonna like it," McCoy said, when asked about the possible reaction from players. "I think it's gonna be an uproar if that is to happen because you're basically taking away a constitutional right to freedom of speech. If guys wanna have a, I guess you would call it a peaceful protest, I don't think it's right to take that away."
McCoy, an eight-year veteran and one of the Bucs' defensive captains, said he does not plan on kneeling during the anthem.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear in a letter sent Tuesday to all 32 teams that he wants players to stand during the anthem. He did not provide specifics about how he intends to ensure it, but he wrote that it would "include such elements as an in-season platform to promote the work of our players on these core issues."
The issue will be discussed during the NFL's regularly scheduled fall meetings in New York next week.
