Massive Flash Flood in Ellicott City MD Last Night

Amazing. I have been there many times. If you are not familiar, Main Street runs at a steep incline down through rock to the bridge over the Patapsco River. That is what you are seeing here. Four streams come together toward where the town is. One woman reported found dead in the river.

Ghazala Khan Wash. Post Op/Ed: "Trump criticized my silence. He knows nothing about true sacrifice."


Ghazala Khan: Trump criticized my silence. He knows nothing about true sacrifice.

Ghazala Khan’s son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004.


Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart.

The last time I spoke to my son was on Mother’s Day 2004. We had asked him to call us collect whenever he could. I begged him to be safe. I asked him to stay back, and not to go running around trying to become a hero, because I knew he would do something like that.

He said, “Mom, these are my soldiers, these are my people. I have to take care of them.” He was killed by a car bomber outside the gates of his base. He died trying to save his soldiers and innocent civilians.

When Donald Trump is talking about Islam, he is ignorant. If he studied the real Islam and Koran, all the ideas he gets from terrorists would change, because terrorism is a different religion.

Donald Trump said he has made a lot of sacrifices. He doesn’t know what the word sacrifice means.

Clinton leads Trump by 6 points after Democratic confab: Reuters/Ipsos poll

By Grant Smith | NEW YORK

(Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton held a 6- percentage-point lead over Republican rival Donald Trump, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll with new wording that was released on Friday, the day after she formally accepted her party's nomination for the Nov. 8 election.

Nearly 41 percent of likely voters favor Clinton, 35 percent favor Trump, and 25 percent picked "Other," according to the new July 25-29 online poll of 1,043 likely voters, which overlapped with the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

"He spoke for seventy-odd minutes. And I do mean odd."

My favorite line.



Transcript: Hillary Clinton's complete Democratic National Convention speech

Thank you! Thank you for that amazing welcome.

And Chelsea, thank you. I'm so proud to be your mother and so proud of the woman you've become. Thanks for bringing Marc into our family, and Charlotte and Aidan into the world.

And Bill, that conversation we started in the law library 45 years ago is still going strong. It's lasted through good times that filled us with joy, and hard times that tested us.

And I've even gotten a few words in along the way.

On Tuesday night, I was so happy to see that my Explainer-in-Chief is still on the job. I'm also grateful to the rest of my family and the friends of a lifetime. To all of you whose hard work brought us here tonight. And to those of you who joined our campaign this week. And what a remarkable week it's been.


"Some rich business elite guy from Manhattan is criticizing Trump! How dare he!!1&!!"

Oh, wait...

Fantastic Lines by Bloomberg! "I KNOW A CON WHEN I SEE ONE."

"Trump says he wants to run the country like his business?? God help us!"

"The richest thing about Trump is his hypocrisy..."

I wouldn't have expected that from him.

DORAL, Fla. - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed claims made by Democrats that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee emails to benefit his campaign.

Trump said he's never met or spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin, but he said the incident with the hacked emails demonstrates that Putin and other world leaders no longer respect the United States.

He said it may not even be Russia behind the email breach and suggested that China may be the culprit.

Trump said that he hopes Russian hackers find and share Clinton's missing emails.

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump told reporters Wednesday morning at Trump National Doral Miami. "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."
