OMG … TMZ is Reporting Paul Walker of “The Fast and the Furious” Movie Fame Died Saturday Afternoon in Single Car Accident (Fiery Car Crash) in Santa Clarita, CA (Pics) (Update: Autopsy Delayed) … RIP

VIA The Drudge Report:

Paul Walker2

OMG … TMZ is reporting that Paul Walker, the actor best known for his role as Brian O’Conner in “The Fast and the Furious” movies has died this afternoon in a single car crash. Say it isn’t so. Walker was just 40 years old. Hmm, but I do not see this updated on  IMDb. The actor born on  on September 12, 1973, in Glendale California is also known for his other roles in my favorites, as Lance Harbor in ‘Varsity Blues’, Lewis Thomas in ‘Joy Ride’ and ‘Into the Blue’ with Jessica Alba. Damn, that is just too bad. Even though the movies were never meant for my demographic, I was a huge Fast and Furious fan.

Paul Walker: September 12, 1973 – November 30, 2013 … Rest in Peace

TMZ:

Paul Walker — best known for his role in “The Fast and the Furious” movies – died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California … TMZ has learned.

The accident happened in Santa Clarita — north of Los Angeles — and according to multiple sources connected to Paul … the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree … and then the car burst into flames.

Several of our sources — some who are still at the scene of the accident — tell us Paul and another person in the car were killed.

UPDATE I: The actor has been taking people on test drives of the car at a car show to raise money for victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.

Only the Good do die young. Paul Walker was reported to have been taking people on test spins in his Porsche to raise money for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines when the accident occurred. Walker was a passenger in a friend’s car and both were attending a charity event for his organization, Reach Out Worldwide.

UPDATE II: Trying to figure out why I do not see any news agencies reporting this. Please tell me this is not a hoax.

UPDATE III: From The Santa Clara Valley Signal … UPDATE: Actor Paul Walker believed killed in Valencia car crash.

Two people were killed Saturday afternoon when a Porsche sports car crashed and burst into flames in Valencia, and initial reports indicated the passenger was actor Paul Walker.

The single-car crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Hercules Street near Constellation Road in the Rye Canyon Business Park, fire officials said.

The red Porsche was reduced to unrecognizable twisted metal in the single-car crash.

Sheriff’s Department officials did not confirm that the actor was killed in the crash, saying the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office would determine the victims’ identities and causes of death. The coroner’s office could not be reached for comment late Saturday.

Spectators gathered at the scene, and several said the passenger was the star of “The Fast and the Furious” series of films. One witness at the scene said he tried to put the fire out and recognized Walker inside the vehicle.

“Him and his buddy, his brother in arms at heart just decided to joyride, take a spin. Something we all do. We’re all car enthusiasts. … We’re all here driving, enjoying each other, and God must’ve needed help,” said Antonio Holmes, who said he was a friend of Walker.

UPDATE IV: So much for those who were questioning the validity of the story … all MSM is reporting it now … CNN, WAPO, ABC News, NBC News,

UPDATE V: BBC has pictures of the car wreck … OMG, just terrible!!!

UPDATE VI: VIDEO remembrance of Paul Walker … the terrible sick irony that he would die in a car crash as a passenger when he was made famous with mad driving skills in the Fast & Furious movies. Just terrible. Just not right.

The autopsy of “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker will be delayed until later in the week, as a Los Angeles coroner awaits the actor’s dental records.

The bodies of Walker, 40, and his friend Roger Rodas were deemed “unidentifiable,” a rep for the L.A. County coroner told TMZ, after being badly burned in a fiery car crash on Saturday.

UPDATE XI: Police confirm Speed a factor in crash that killed actor Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.

Speed played a role in the one-car crash that killed “The Fast and the Furious” actor Paul Walker in Southern California on Saturday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Walker, 40, was a passenger in the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames in the city of Santa Clarita on Saturday afternoon.

“Speed was a factor in the solo vehicle collision,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

WOW … #4 Auburn Stuns #1 Alabama 34-28 on Last Play of Game as ‘Second’ Miracle at Jordan Hare Happens in Two Weeks (VIDEO) .. Twitter Erupts!!!

THE GREATEST IRON BOWL EVER … TIGERS WIN, TIGERS WIN, TIGERS WIN … WAR EAGLE!!!

It was an Iron Bowl for the ages, the #4 Auburn Tigers stunned #1 Alabama  34-28 on the final play of the game. The Crimson Tide tried a 56 yard field goal with 1 second left on the clock to win the game when another miracle happened on The Plains. The FG was short and the Auburn Tigers’ Chris Davis ran the ball back 109 yards for a game winning touch down. The irony of it all was that Alabama coach Nick Saban lobbied for an extra second to be put on the clock to attempt the long FG. Then they set up for the game winning field goal and the rest is Iron Bowl lore.

The Auburn Tigers will head to Atlanta, GA and play for the SEC Championship.

Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions’ BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers’ own.

Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith’s 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference).

This is why we love college football!!!

DESTINY BEATS DYNASTY!!!

Last week it was the “Prayer at Jordan Hare” as the hail Mary pass was tipped by two Georgia defenders on a 4th and 18 play into the hands of Auburn WR Ricardo Louis for a game winning TD! This week it was even more improbable as the game seemed all bust lost after Bama scored on a 99 yard TD pass.

The play of the year in college football … Auburn’s Chris Davis runs back the missed Bama FG 100 yards for a game winning Iron Bowl TD!!!

Check out the Bleacher Report for more from the game of the year.

UPDATE I:  I nesver thought it was possible, but Nick Saban got out-coached. On a personal note, I have never really questioned Nick Saban’s coaching as he is one of the best in the business, but today he seemed off his game. However, he went for it on 4th down when he was at about the Auburn 20 yard line in the center of the field and failed. Even though his kicker had already missed two FG’s, he really should have kicked it there and tried to go up by 10 points. Then on the last play of the game, no what in hell I would have attempted a 56 yard FG with a red-shirt freshman kicker who had only tried 2 all year. Sabin does realize that ‘Facing the Giants’ was a movie and the last second FG kick by David of 51 yards was a movie as well, right? I am not sure how Saban left his chances of winning a third consecutive BCS Championship to a freshman kicker, rather than his senior QB AJ McCarron in OT.

WAPO OP-ED: End Presidential Term Limits … Let’s Have a King Again Instead … We Should Have Senate and House Term Limits

End presidential term limits, are you insane? We should implement US House and Senate term limits as well.

In what might be one of the most foolishly thought out premise, NYU history professor Jonathan Zimmerman inked a WAPO oped titled “End presidential term limits,” suggesting that the 22nd Amendment limiting presidents to two terms of office should be repealed as a way to assuring a more effective presidency and protecting democracy from a leader without fear of voters’ wrath.  Why is it so important now, because Barack Obama is president? Hell, it’s not like he follows the US Constitution now, watch him run for a third term anyhow and call those oppose racists.

Term Limits

Sorry, but if our countries first president, George Washington, thought multiple terms was a bad thing, that is good enough for me. As it was Washington had to be talked into a second term. Ending term limits was wrong when it was discussed by Republicans during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, it was wrong when Democrats brought it up with Bill Clinton and it is still wrong with Barack Obama. The office of the President is bigger than any one man, that includes Obama. There is a reason why America fought a War of Independence against King George and it was not to replace one tyrant with another.

In 1947, Sen. Harley Kilgore (D-W.Va.) condemned a proposed constitutional amendment that would restrict presidents to two terms. “The executive’s effectiveness will be seriously impaired,” Kilgore argued on the Senate floor, “ as no one will obey and respect him if he knows that the executive cannot run again.”

I’ve been thinking about Kilgore’s comments as I watch President Obama, whose approval rating has dipped to 37  percent in CBS News polling — the lowest ever for him — during the troubled rollout of his health-care reform. Many of Obama’s fellow Democrats have distanced themselves from the reform and from the president. Even former president Bill Clinton has said that Americans should be allowed to keep the health insurance they have.

Or consider the reaction to the Iran nuclear deal. Regardless of his political approval ratings, Obama could expect Republican senators such as Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and John McCain (Ariz.) to attack the agreement. But if Obama could run again, would he be facing such fervent objections from Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.)?

Probably not. Democratic lawmakers would worry about provoking the wrath of a president who could be reelected. Thanks to term limits, though, they’ve got little to fear.

Nor does Obama have to fear the voters, which might be the scariest problem of all. If he chooses, he could simply ignore their will. And if the people wanted him to serve another term, why shouldn’t they be allowed to award him one?

Nothing to fear eh, what would you call the approval rating in the 30′s and the panic that Democrats are presently experiencing? Also, Zimmerman says, “If he [Obama] chooses, he could simply ignore their will.” Just curious, when did Barack Obama or Democrats ever care about the will of the People?

That being said, not only should the 22nd Amendment not be repealed, there should be term limits for Senators and House members as well. As a matter of fact there should be a limit as to how many years that some one can serve in over-all political life. These people need to understand who they work for and the laws they pass will eventually effect them too. That does not happen in today’s politics.

Woman Uses Stun Gun on a Fellow shopper during a Vicious Black Friday Brawl at the Franklin Mills Mall in Philadelphia, PA

ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT IS THE COUNTRY COMING TO?

GOOD GRIEF!!! A woman used a stun gun on a fellow female shopper during a vicious “Black Friday” brawl at the Franklin Mills Mall in Philadelphia, Pennslyvania. The incident, which was caught on video, occurred at around 2:30 a.m. Friday. The two women got into a cat fight that turned into a smack down as they can be seen exchanging punches and wrestling on floor when suddenly one of the women takes out a stun gun and uses it multiple times.

“It started out, one couple was fighting with another couple. They had words, the guys got into a fight and then the girls,” said Napolitano, who videotaped the melee. “One couple, they were like a family  and all, with a young child in a stroller.”

The video shows the two women punching each other and someone in the crowd yelling, “No, stop.”

76 Year Old Yvonne Small Could be NY Citiy’s 10th ‘Knockout Game’ Victim

Not again … Another victim of the ‘Knockout’ game …

A 76 year old woman, Yvonne Small, is believed to be the latest victim in New York City of the knockout game. Or should we say, cowardly assault! The elderly woman fell to the ground after being punched by her assailant on Alabama Ave. and Wortman Ave. in East New York about 11:35 a.m. on Friday. Yvonne Small was sent to the hospital for her injuries and released. The suspect is still at large.  The NYC Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the person caught in this surveillance camera picture below.  This coward is wanted in an assault on a 76-year-old woman in the 75 Precinct in Brooklyn.

The irony, or I should say crying shame, is just before Small was attacked, members of the Rev. Al Sharpton group National Action Network rallied in East New York against the attacks.

76-year-old Brooklyn woman was punched in the back of the head by a stranger in what residents fear could be the city’s tenth “knockout game” attack.

Yvonne Small fell to the ground after being punched by her assailant on Alabama Ave. and Wortman Ave. in East New York about 11:35 a.m., according to police sources.

As she was being attacked, an already-planned rally against the sick game was wrapping up in the same neighborhood.

CNN Poll: What Obama Job Revovery … Only 24% Believe That an Economic Recovery is Under Way

Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!

During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.

According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and  his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.

Obama_Failure

Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.

Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.

Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.

So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.

The 2012 State of the Union:

Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking

Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.

2011 State of the Union:

The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.

But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.

2010 State of the Union:

This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]

The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]

That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]

2009 State of the Union:

You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.

The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

What a Coincidence … Cancer Patient Bill Elliot Who Spoke Out Against ObamaCare Now Being Audited by IRS

THIS IS REALLY DISTURBING, DO WE REALLY HAVE A GOVERNMENT TARGETING AMERICANS WHO DARE BE CRITICAL OF OMAMA?

Bill Elliot, a cancer patient who lost his insurance due to Obamacare and couldn’t pay the expensive new premiums, went on FOX News, ‘The Kelly Files’ to tell his story. Now, suddenly Bill Elliot is being audited by the IRS, scheduled in April 2014. That is if he actually lives that long. There seems to be an extremely disturbing pattern of the IRS being used as the Obama administrations storm troopers for anyone critical of Obama’s policies or who would dare use their 1st Amendment rights of free speech. The cancer victim had an insurance policy he liked and could afford. Now, thanks to Obamacare, he does not and can’t afford the ridiculous premiums.  So what is the remedy for this cancer patient for a president who cares, why have him audited of course.

What a vindictive government! This is still the United States, right?

 

The Front News Magazine:

He went on FOX News where his story was picked up by C. Steven Tucker, a health insurance broker who helped him keep his insurance.

Now suddenly Bill Elliot is being audited for 2009 with an interview only scheduled in April 2014. Assuming he lives that long. That might be a coincidence, but Tucker is being audited back to 2003.

That’s a rather strange coincidence.

Would the IRS actually go after a cancer patient, who had voted for Obama initially, just for appearing on FOX and now being sharply critical of Obama and suggesting that he resign for his health plan lie?

Under the current insane state of affairs, where the IRS was used to silence the opposition, it’s unfortunately entirely possible. The fact that we are even having this discussion shows how badly Obama has undermined confidence in government institutions and the rule of law.

More at Patterico’s Pontifications … hmm, remember when Dr. Ben Carson got audited as well after he was critical of Obamacare at the National Prayer breakfast with Barack Obama mere feet away ?

41 Year Old Holly Grim Missing Since 11/22/13 in Lower Macungie Township, PA

41 year old Holly Grim has been missing since Friday, November 22, 2013 in Lehigh Valley County, Lower Macungie Township, PA. She was last seen outside her home in the Red Maples Mobile Home Park in the 1100 block of Grange Road at 6:33 this morning. Grim disappeared after she dropped her teenage son, Zach,  off at a school bus stop last Friday. Holly never showed up to work that morning and her family has not heard from her.   Her relatives think something bad happened to her between 6:33 a.m. when she brought her son to the bus stop and 7 a.m., when her mother stopped at her mobile home to check on her. Police have listed Holly Grim’s status as “missing person-endangered.” She is described as 5-foot-3, about 100 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Missing – Holly Grim

Holly Grim, 41, of the Red Maples Mobile Home Park, was not home when her mother walked in. Her mother said she found Holly’s glasses, her cigarettes and an overturned cup of coffee.

Grim’s keys also were there and her car still was out front, her mother said. And Grim was due to be at her job at Allen Organ Co. in Macungie.

“There was no reason for her car to be there if she was off to work,” said her mother. “I just figured she was sleeping. I knew she had a cold.” But her mother looked everywhere in the home and no one was there.

Grim normally had a cigarette and coffee as she watched the news before going to work, her mother said, and it appears she was doing that when someone interrupted her.

“It just seems almost impossible,” she said. “Someone had to be there when she got back from the bus stop.”

Anyone with information on Grim’s whereabouts can contact Trooper Robert Devers at 610-395-1438.

IDIOT of the Day … Brother Prank Calls Sister with Bomb Hoax Halts San Diego, CA’s I-15 Traffic for Hours on Thanksgiving Day

IDIOT OF THE DAY …

A brother prank called his unsuspecting sister that a bomb was in the car, the next thing you know she pulls over her car on the highway and calls 911. The bomb squad was called and everyone can guess what happened next on a busy California highway was people tried to get to their Thanksgiving Day destinations.  It turned out to be a hoax but that did not stop traffic from being stopped for hours on I-15 on Thanksgiving Day. Supposedly the sister had no idea it was her brother making the prank call. Honestly, who thinks that it is funny to call some one and say there is a bomb in their car? Yea, real funny. But the unnamed brother will not be laughing now, the authorities have arrested the brother and will be booking him into San Diego jail on felony charges.

Hey brain surgeon, this is the reason why you are not allowed to yell fire or bomb in a movie theater either, so please don’t try that next Thanksgiving!

Idiot of the Day

A prank phone call between a brother and sister involving a bomb hoax led officials to block traffic in both directions on San Diego’s busy Interstate 15 on Thanksgiving afternoon.

The freeway shutdown began around 2:45 p.m. at northbound and southbound I-15 near Miramar Way.

Lt. Lorenzo Ruano with the California Highway Patrol said a woman was driving on the freeway with a friend when she received a phone call from an unknown person, whose voice she did not recognize. The person on the other end told the woman there was a bomb in her car.

Frightened, Lt. Ruano said the woman immediately pulled over by the center divide on northbound I-15, just south of the Miramar Way overpass, and called 911.

UPDATE I: Check out the VIDEO at Legal Insurrection at the 0:17 mark where the fool girl thinks that “this is hysterical”. Wow really? I guess she must find dwarf tossing funny as well.

CNN/ORC Poll: NJ Governor Chris Christie Leads Possible 2016 GOP Contenders … Not Only is it Way too Early, Don’t Count On It Christie

A new CNN poll has New Jersey governor Chris Christie as the front-runner of possible Republican contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nominee. For the Democrats it would appear that Hillary Clinton is already being coronated their nominee. However, for the GOP not only is this poll way too early, I would doubt that Chris Christie will be the Republican nominee unless they plan on losing another presidential election. Polls at this point are merely a popularity contest and with Christie’s recent landslide win for governor in NJ against a no-name opponent, he just happens to be the cause-celeb for today.

There is a long, long way to go and the potential winner for the GOP may not have even come forward yet. The same could be said for Democrats as well. Wasn’t Hillary Clinton the presumptive Democrat nominee winner as well before a certain novice, unprepared, 2 year US Senator from Illinois named Obama got into the race?

Obama_Christie

Who actually thinks the GOP base would vote for Christie after this?

And according to a CNN/ORC International survey, if Hillary Clinton decides against making another bid for the White House, Vice President Joe Biden would be the initial favorite to capture the Democratic nomination.

The poll, released Friday morning, indicates that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, fresh off his Garden State re-election landslide victory and widespread national media attention, jumped to the top of the pack of potential contenders for the GOP nomination.

Twenty-four percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP questioned in the survey say they’d be likely to support Christie for the Republican nomination, up seven percentage points from a CNN poll in early September. Back then, Christie and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the House Budget chairman and the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, were virtually tied at the top of the GOP list, with Christie at 17% and Ryan at 16%.

But Ryan, who’s stayed mostly away from the political spotlight the past few months, has dropped to 11%, putting him in third place, slightly behind Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, at 13%. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who like Paul has made multiple trips this year to the states that kick off the presidential primary and caucus calendar, like Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, stands at 10% in the survey, the only other Republican White House hopeful to get double-digit support.

Sorry, but a win in New Jersey is hardly a microcosm of winning a primary in the Republican party or a national election. New Jersey is it’s own animal, much like every state is.  Much of the GOP base considered Chris Christie a “Benedict Arnold” when he went overboard gushing over Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy, sabotaging any chance Mitt Romney may have had. The GOP have run two ‘RINO’s’ in a row, the “mavericky” John McCain in 2008 and Mitt “Romneycare” Romney in 2012. Both candidates alienated the GOP base and in the end, really stood for nothing, except they ere not Obama. At what point will the establishment Republicans understand that the GOP electorate wants a candidate with substance and is not Democrat-light?

The focus this last week should have been on Obama’s shameful conduct in Benghazi. Instead, the  schizophrenic Christie allowed himself to be manipulated by Obama’s camp so easily, that one has to question the reasoning for his desertion of Governor Romney. I believe the egomaniacal Christie would rather run for POTUS in 2016 than 2020. And chose to spend the last week  stabbing Mitt in the back.

I understand that Christie had to ”break bread” with Obama when Obama came to tour New Jersey for disaster relief for Hurricane Sandy. We all should be fine with that.  But after Obama left, Christie has continued to act ”star-struck” toward the liberal Democrat. Both men are frequent apologizers for Islam so that may also be a shared bond.

And Christie refused an invitation to attend a  Sunday night rally with Mr. Romney in Pennsylvania, only 20 minutes from Trenton. You can google Benedict Arnold/Chris Christie or Traitor Chris Christie and see that the internet is abuzz with  stories about how Christie the RINO has been selling out to Obama.
