8/21/2017 The Great American Eclipse

A total eclipse of the sun occurs today, with the path of totality moving northwest to southeast across the United States. The eclipse can be watched live online at NASA. Some broadcast and cable television channels will also offer live coverage. If you’re fortunate enough to be able to view the eclipse in person, be sure to wear appropriate eye protection.

NASA tells us:

This is the first time a total solar eclipse has gone from one American coast to the other since 1918. It will also be the first time in U.S. history that a total solar eclipse will make landfall exclusively on U.S. soil, meaning it will not be visible from any other country. (This technically happened in 1257 — but, of course, the United States wasn’t a country way back then.)

If it’s raining or overcast, a total eclipse will still provide the spectacle of total darkness and a drop in temperature, as much as 15 degrees or more. Birds may roost. Cicadas may sing. Owls may hoot. It promises to be magical.

Refer to the above chart (click to enlarge) to see whether you’re in the path of totality. There’s a live chart at this link that will help to determine when totality arrives (UT, Greenwich Mean Time) and how long it will last. (There are online converters. Here’s one for UT to CDT, but it uses a 24-hour UT clock, so subtract 12 hours. Here’s another.)

Even if you’re not in the path of totality, you will still experience a partial eclipse within the continental U.S. (and some other countries, including parts of Mexico and Canada).

Catch you on the other side!

    Barron Trump’s newest J. Crew T-shirt sends internet into a frenzy as Chelsea Clinton defends him …. LEAVE him B ….

    AOL.com …..”Hannah Kramer” , AOL.com good?bad/ulgy?
    Fresh from their two-week vacation in New Jersey & New York, the First Family arrived on the D.C. tarmac, ready to get back to work. And though Melania’s flowy yellow Delpozo sundress caught the world’s eye,

    it’s time we “D I S” -cussed what another Trump has contributed to the fashion world.
    Walking off of Air Force One along side his parents, Barron Trump looked relaxed & renewed in khaki shorts, matching tan loafers & a red graphic tee. The tee, which reads “On your mark tiger shark,” has seemingly caught the eye of the internet, anxious to share the first son’s style.

    Reddit, ready to pounce, traced the shirt as yet another J. Crew find. As soon as the world caught on, the shirt, which retails for $24.50, was already sold out on the retailer’s website. “You snooze, you lose,” Reddit sulked.

    “I’m just going to buy every single shirt on J.Crew so maybe I’ll have the same t as Barron some day,” one commented on the thread.

    Another fan commented, “I had the same thought this morning! It was already sold out, so I thought maybe we should just start doing all our shopping at J. Crew.”

    This isn’t the first time Barron’s style has sent the internet into a tizzy. In June, the 11-year-old was photographed in another J.Crew graphic tee,
    this time printed with … “The Expert” …. in bold blue.

    And while most of the internet has been loving the middle schooler’s style, some aren’t too in tune with his stylistic choices. On Monday, the conservative news site …… The Daily Caller “bashed” ? …..
    Barron for his most recent outfit.

    “It’s High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He’s In the White House,” the article’s headline read. Like most of Twitter, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton came to Barron’s defense with a message that has garnered a lot of attention:

    ~Zen… yep that …musty old WH is like a bunker/cave BUTT’ he’s still 2
    young 2
    leave home … B A R R O N …. ROCKS MY WORLD … 2 CUTE! YEP !

  2. BELIEVE THIS STORY. It’s apparently NOT fake news, although it would be far better for our country if it were. This takes political correctness to a new level AND it’s beyond the pale that it appears as if this Asian-American was bullied into “agreeing” with this plan: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/wow-espn-pulls-asian-anchor-uva-game-name-robert-lee-video/

    “ESPN Pulled Asian Anchor “Robert Lee” from announcing the University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. …

    ESPN ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON MOVING ROBERT LEE FROM VIRGINIA GAME:

    “We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.” …”

    Yes, it’s a shame and it sounds to me like a hostile work environment and like Robert has an argument for discrimination. Will he have to change his name if he expects to work again? Is that what this is coming to? Where this Asian man will be hassled on account of his NAME?

  3. I love Sheriff Joe! 😀

  4. Applause!!! ❤

  5. A student who filmed the attack could be heard laughing before the video cut out. …… ^^^^^^^
    Police said the 16-year-old student who attacked the teacher was arrested at the school & faces POSSIBLE charges ?????? ….of battery, a local Fox affiliate reported.

    Police said the teacher’s injuries were NOT life-threatening. >… SO WHAT?

  6. YEP ….WTP ….WANT….”MORE” !!!!! ….. JUDGE ROY MOORE ….just DO IT!!!

    • Ha, ha. It is too funny.

      The alt-left are digging their hole deeper and deeper and deeper. Methinks they jumped the gun on their “civil war,” forgetting that “they” aren’t a majority YET.

      We have to hope and pray, however, that the people stick with Trump. It’s our only hope.

  7. Washington (AFP) – A US government science envoy on Wednesday became the latest official to R E S I G N ….. ha’ ….. suckers….1 & ALL!!! BYE-BYE!
    over Donald Trump’s refusal to condemn neo-Nazis and the latest to send a coded message of defiance via his resignation letter.

    Daniel Kammen, who had been in government service since 1996 and served as a state department envoy since 2016, said Trump had “harmed the quality of life in the United States, our standing abroad, and the sustainability of the planet.”

    But apparently it was Trump’s equivocation about white supremacists’ who led a deadly march in Charlottesville, Virginia that was the final straw.

    “My decision to resign is in response to your attacks on the core values of the United States. Your failure to condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis has domestic and international ramifications,” Kammen wrote.

    But within the one page letter was a less obvious message — an acrostic, with the first letter of each paragraph spelling “IMPEACH.”

    Kammen is the latest in a series of officials and panelists to resign their posts — from members of the arts to business leaders — and is not the first to deliver a hidden message in doing so.

    When the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities resigned en masse last week, the first letter of each paragraph of their letter spelled out “RESIST” — a watchword for opponents of the Trump administration.

    • Good. Let them ALL resign. Trump won’t have to do the purge himself (which he should have done on DAY ONE) and so the media can’t blame him for purging them. They self-purge.

      How ridiculous. I heard Trump condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis. The transcripts are ONLINE. I heard him say it. He said it again just last night. They LIE. They’re FAKE NEWS, and idiots like this repeat the lie. But he’s not an idiot–this is a planned lie. These people are SO FREAKING JUVENILE to put acrostics in their letters. LIKE FREAKING FIVE-YEAR-OLDS!

      Na na na na, hey, hey, hey, GOOD BYE!

    Lots of job openings being Created, just like HE Promised. !!!!!!

    Will the last person out please turn off the lights?… such little dicks!

    they are fleeing as fast as they can.

    Rats leaving the sinking ship.

    • You have to wonder what’s real and what’s spoof. If it’s real, we can only hope and pray that someone like James O’Keefe’s crew is responding and planning to report from the inside. It’s CRITICAL to our nation’s future for this conspiracy to be revealed. btw, I read that the pipeline owners are filing a RICO lawsuit against Greenpeace protesters who have disrupted their business and cost their shareholders a lot of money. This is a tactic that should be used by anyone whose business is harmed by these “protests” that are astroturfed via a corrupt conspiracy. In addition, they ought to include the social media companies as co-defendants. After all, they provide the means for these people to organize. If they censor so-called alt-right and white supremacists and keep them from organizing via their platforms, then they are therefore complicit if they allow OTHERS to organize in a way that monetarily harms people. By censoring some and not censoring ALL, then they’re able to be blamed. At least, imho. I’m not a lawyer but read enough to understand how the law sometimes works.

      I saw a similar ad on the web where allegedly they were requesting actors fot the Charlottesville riots (although of course they didn’t use that word). https://conservativedailypost.com/exposed-online-ad-recruited-charlottesville-activists-for-25-an-hour/

      Wow. I just found that article to use as background and I read it only now. It mentions the Dakota Access pipeline protests! It would be great if the lawsuits would follow all of these astroturfed “peaceful protests.” I don’t understand why the victims in Ferguson never filed suit against the organizations that arranged the protests. No wonder antifa claims to be “unorganized” and the media go along with that description, when we KNOW they are totally and completely organized. No organization, then nobody in particular to sue.

  9. “It’s not over till it’s over.” – Yogi Berra. …UNTIL …WTP …KNOW the TRUTH!!!!

    Due to the odds, until the U S U R P ER…. Obama game that the COW-ards in Congress presented to We The People is complete, anything could happen & Judy appears to be a rallying point.

    I say: “Never give up.”

    Barack HUSSEIN Obama is the greatest HOAX …… EVER perpetrated on the citizens of the U.S. of A. – a twist on words of a famous Hollywood celebrity.
    Cody,
    You have definitely found your calling man!
    You are a paragon of perpetual perseverance:-)
    And We May Thank God that you are!
    God Be With You Cody
    God Bless America

    If no one was watching, I wouldn’t be here.
    TRUMP 44…not 45, Sotoero ….NEVER …… was eligible >>> AS OBAMA!!!!!!

    TF bow…no, Cody Judy didn’t strike out 27 times…the courts were corrupt &

    PROTECTED BY THE DEEP STATE SWAMP 27 times. …27 <27< 27< X's !!!!!!!

    Not one single case against Barack Obama/Soetoro has made it to a jury. The reason is clear when when you understand when a Slobbering LIB-eral judge remarked and working for the defense said that Obama / Soetoro’s narrative had been “fact checked” & “snoped” so he was confident Obama / Soetoro was a US citizen.

    Although a mountain of proof denies any truth to Obama’s claim of being a US citizen liberal judges and contemptible and quite cowardly useless republicans allowed this national disgrace to spread.

    If one looks at Obama/Soeotoro’s certificate of live birth the very first & obvious reason for fraud is the term “African American”. These two words
    on the face of that Fraudulent DOC-ument weld it solidly to counterfeit status because that was not used as a definition of a race of people. Only Black & Negro was used on birth certificates & other documents in the early 1960’s.

    Then there are the fonts. There were only typewriters used then & how could you have T W O ….. ???????????
    different Fonts on the same document & then there is the safety paper that has even more issues. Obama’s CLB is an example of very bad counterfeiting. The only thing that exceeds that total incompetence is our justice system alongside congress.
    …. TRUMP 44

    If TF Bow were running against Barry Soetoro for president I bet he’d be playing a different tune on his Constitutional Flute.
    TRUMP 44

    Everybody is so Scared to B U S T ??? Obama,aka Sotoero. Just because the deep state thugs protect this fraud doesn’t mean he was eligible to run for president. If I was the bully of my neighborhood & stole everybodys’ lemonade money it doesn’t justify my actions just because I’m a bully. I’m praying to God right now as I’m writing that his judgement will fall on this corrupt deep state & it’s frightened protection by Crooked Judges who should be arrested for what they have done to our Constitution & O U R people. God please release your high & almighty justice upon these corrupt teeth-gnashing arrogant judges & bless Cody Judy, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Mike Zullo.

    • They cannot EVER allow any case to go to trial, much less to a jury. That’s because DISCOVERY will decide the entire case. Obama cannot face discovery. He HAS NO PROOF. In fact, if he has original, authentic documents at all, they will prove the plaintiff’s case.

    This is so ridiculous. Republicans are anti-intellectuals who look down on the college-educated elite? HARDLY. That guy is the type who believes we’re all deplorable IDIOTS, when I would suspect that a greater percentage of Trump supporters are college-educated than are Hillary or Obama supporters. Just a guess, but I bet I’m right.

    They should charge him with contempt of Congress. He should reveal who paid for the Trump dossier. Why do they let him get away with not telling? Subpoena the records.

    He will win anyway. The Rhinos & Dems have that state sewed up.
    Dems will register as Republicans to win that race for Flake.

    I appreciate the courage of Kelli Ward, but it will take something monumental to knock of Flake due to the alliance that has been created.
