Incredible pictures and video. Via commenter "Splunge." More from The Weather Channel and The Guardian. [rdbrewer]


Jonah Goldberg: Will the Clinton-Cash Scandal Doom the Hillary’s White House Bid?
"The Clintons are like the Tudors of the Ozarks. They believe they are royalty, but they also understand that even monarchs need friends. The Clinton Foundation is the perfect vehicle for their ambition. Like the medieval Catholic Church, it blurs the lines between ideals and interests." [rdbrewer]

NY Times: Candidate Clinton and the Foundation
"The only plausible answer is full and complete disclosure of all sources of money going to the foundation." [rdbrewer]


Male Columbia student sues school over 'mattress girl' case
"[S]ays Emma Sulkowicz campaign against him created hostile environment, gender bias." Via @ComradeArthur. [rdbrewer]


Stella Morabito: What You Should Know About The Armenian Genocide
"President Obama joins those who deny it by refusing to call it was it was: genocide. This is the seventh time he’s retracted his 2008 election-year promise that if elected he would recognize the Armenian genocide." [rdbrewer]


Raymond Ibrahim: The Islamic Genocide of Christians: Past and Present
"Today, April 24, we remember how exactly 100 years ago the last historic Muslim caliphate, the Ottoman Empire, tried to cleanse its empire of Christian minorities...." Via @EdDriscoll. [rdbrewer]


Trey Gowdy To Clinton Lawyer: Here's 136 Unanswered Questions About Hillary's Email
"[Clinton attorney David] Kendal send the House Select Committee Chairman a letter saying that the former Secretary of State had already answered all the questions about her email therefore she didn't need to testify on that subject." [rdbrewer]
Daily Mail: Our climate models are WRONG: Global warming has slowed - and recent changes are down to ‘natural variability’, says study
"Global warming hasn't happened as fast as expected, according to a new study based on 1,000 years of temperature records. The research claims that natural variability in surface temperatures over the course of a decade can account for increases and dips in warming rates." I guess they don't believe in #Science! [rdbrewer]

Press Herald: Senate Republicans introduce bill to keep NSA phone surveillance intact
"In an unusual procedural move, the GOP measure to extend the NSA’s so-called 'bulk collection' of phone records was not considered by any Senate committee." Mitch McConnell did that. [rdbrewer]


Jeb Bush praises Obama over NSA spying
"The former Florida governor said the NSA’s bulk collection of Americans’ phone data was 'an important service' carried out in a way that protects individual civil liberties." As if people don't abuse power. Examples of public servants protecting civil liberties: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. People are rotten. Not all, of course, but this is why we cannot afford to water down constitutional protections. [rdbrewer]



CBS New York: Coyote That Has Made The Big Apple Its Home Still On The Run
"Earlier that morning, police were on the coyote’s trail, but it managed to evade officers." Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]

Mediaite: NYT Reporter: Hillary Can’t Just Declare Everything ‘Off-Limits’
"'They’re basically saying ‘Off-limits.’ Anything you want to say, anything you want to report about their background, you’re biased, you have an ax to grind, and you’re part of the vast right wing conspiracy.'" Dems, you want eight more years of Clinton drama? They're just awful. [rdbrewer]

The Blaze: Infamous American Al Qaeda Member Adam Gadahn Killed in U.S. Counterterror Operation, Along With Others Including Hostages
Via @BenK84. [rdbrewer]

CBS DC: Rand Paul: ‘Our Founding Fathers Would Be Mortified’ By NSA
True, but some like Jeb Bush think routine Fourth Amendment warrant requirement violations are good to keep you safe. After all, Patrick Henry said, "Give me security, or give me death!" Or something. Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]


NY Times Reports Clinton Foundation Donations May Have Allowed Russia To Buy Control Of US Uranium
"As the State Department was mulling of the deal, the Chairman of Uranium One donated the $2.35 million from his family foundation to the Clintons." [rdbrewer]

NY Times: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company
From Jeff's post above. "At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family." [rdbrewer]


Jonathan Allen: Exclusive: Clinton charities will refile tax returns, audit for other errors
"The charities' errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters." A million here, a million there... how can you keep track of these things? Via @GabrielMalor. [rdbrewer]
Twitter, Thursday Morning
(ref Clinton tax ooopsie) [@ComradeArthur]
An Oral History of Airplane!
Most interesting reveals: David Letterman tested for role of Ted Striker; Peter Graves called the script the most offensive pile of garbage he'd ever seen, but his wife and daughter convinced him to (reluctantly, skeptically) do the movie anyway
Florida man bitten while trying to kiss venomous snake

Milo Yiannopoulos: How I Ended Up Starring In The Most Violent Video Game Of The Year [rdbrewer]


McConnell introduces bill to extend NSA surveillance
"The move comes as a bipartisan group of lawmakers in both chambers is preparing legislation to scale back the government’s spying powers under Section 215 of the Patriot Act." Reforming this thing is a bipartisan slam dunk. Stunning. [rdbrewer]



Conservative Opposition To Ex-Im Bank Hits Fever Pitch
"If Congress does not act, the bank will expire June 30. 'By paying foreign companies to buy American exports, the Export-Import Bank tilts the playing field away from mid-sized and small businesses in favor of large, politically connected corporations'...." [rdbrewer]


There’s Always a Backstory
"It is the cleverness of the argument — the show-off strut — that is the point of all such punditry. This is the stock-in-trade of writers at Salon and Slate. When you see a headline like, 'ISIS Victory in Syria Would Be the Best Thing for Israel,' or 'The Biblical Argument for Gay Marriage....'" Behold the elite mind. [rdbrewer]


Michael Goodwin: Clintons ran Tammany-like money operation
"From their attempted pilfering of White House furniture to raking in gazillions from countries and companies that might want a government favor or two, they have spent their careers seeing their opportunities and taking a cut of the action." [rdbrewer]

Michael Tomasky: The Clintons Still Aren’t Corrupt
You're just a conspiracy nut if you think they are, hater. [rdbrewer]

Podcast: AoSHQ commenters Alex the Chick and Brent Cochran [rdbrewer]


Brandi Walton: The Kids Are Not Alright: A Lesbian’s Daughter Speaks Out
Gay parents and their kids don't necessarily think alike. [rdbrewer]


Mollie Hemingway: Madonna Quotes Margaret Thatcher. What Happened Next Is Awful.
Interesting that the left wing mob cannot recognize that Margaret Thatcher was a great woman and a great leader. She's on the other team, so she's bad. So they went after Madonna, of course. Fucking children. Also from The Federalist: Everything about booty. [rdbrewer]



Robots Can Mix You a Drink. But Will They Listen to Your Problems?
"The Monsieur was created by a team of engineers from Georgia Tech after a frustrating night watching basketball finals in a crowded restaurant. 'It wasn’t until halftime that we got our first drink....'" Photo from The Fifth Element. [rdbrewer]


You’ve Won Against the Gun Bullies—Here’s Where to Celebrate
"This December, meet Glenn Reynolds, Roger L. Simon, Steve Green, Dr. Helen, Dana Loesch, Ed Morrissey, and Mark Rippetoe in person." [rdbrewer]

WFB supercut: 88 Times Hillary Clinton Said 'Mmm Hmm' in New Hampshire
Video. [rdbrewer]

Scribd: SwiftKey Emoji Report
"SwiftKey analyzed more than one billion pieces of emoji data across a wide range of categories to learn how speakers of 16 different languages and regions use emoji." Guess who scored the highest in money, raunchiness, and violence. Well, the nicest people in the world did. [rdbrewer]

Matt O'Brien: Economists have discovered how bad the economy really is
"Now if you add it all up, this shadow unemployment means our jobs hole is more than three times as big as it looks." [rdbrewer]

Glenn Reynolds, USA Today: Wisconsin's dirty prosecutors pull a Putin
"Abusing law enforcement powers to punish political opponents is a crime." [rdbrewer]

News from the space nerd. [rdbrewer]

Pundit Press: Berkeley Students Protest 'Hostility' for Minority Students, Attack Minorities Trying to Attend Class
"Up to 50 students gathered and prevented foot traffic through the gate. On multiple occasions, students, including minorities, tried to break through so they could attend class. In response, the protesters violently attacked them. Three assaults were reported during the protest." These mob-rule idiots switch off empathy when they gather, because everything is okay when you're a hero fighting for what's right, man. So it's okay to treat others like objects. [rdbrewer]


Orin Kerr: Police can’t delay traffic stops to investigate crimes absent suspicion, Supreme Court rules
"The issue in the case: When the police make a routine traffic stop, can the police delay the duration of the stop, even just for a small amount of time, to wait for drug sniffing dogs, absent any articulable suspicion to believe that there are drugs in the car?" [rdbrewer]
Sad Jerkoffs at Boing Bong Sad That Rightwingers Defended Their Free Speech
Who else would defend speech? Freedom of speech is almost entirely a "rightwing value" now, as the left -- and Boing Boing -- are now supporters of the supposedly Liberating Power of Censorship
