First Footage Shows Historic Hurricane Dorian Destroy The Bahamas With 200mph Winds





Hurricane Dorian moved very slowly as it crossed the Bahamas over the weekend, inflicting massive damages on the region.

The storm has not had a clear path and continues to baffle researchers, who are unsure which direction it will be headed once it leaves the Bahamas. The hurricane seems to have made a complete stop over the Grand Bahama Island, with record-setting winds being reported on its path.

At its strongest, Dorian registered as a category 5 hurricane, but it slowly downgraded to a category 4 after unleashing fury on the Bahamas. The hurricane currently remains a category 4 storm, but officials are warning that it should not be taken lightly, and evacuations should still be taken very seriously.

The destruction left in the Bahamas has many people in the United States concerned about the path of the storm. Over the weekend, an evacuation of at least 1 million people was ordered in South Carolina and Georgia. The National Hurricane Center has issued hurricane, storm surge, and tropical storm watches and warnings from the Atlantic coast of Florida northward into southeastern Georgia, as the United States braces for the storm.

The following Tweet from the National Weather Service shows some of the speeds that were recorded at different locations on Dorian’s path.

At around noon on Monday, Dorian was roughly 30 miles northeast of Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, and was moving so slow that its travel speed was just 1 mph. However, despite the slow travel speed, the storm is still producing gusts of nearly 200 mph, and some have said that it could be the strongest storm in recorded history.

The good news is that the storm is beginning to weaken, though it is still a stronger storm than most, even in its weakened state. The Hurricane Center predicts that Dorian will continue to weaken as it passes Florida.

This news is no consolation for the people of the Bahamas, who seemed to have gotten the worst that the storm had to offer.

Record-setting winds of nearly 200 mph were reported on the Grand Bahama Island on Monday, creating a massive storm surge that flooded the region and left coastal areas under 18 to 23 of water.

The duration that the hurricane stayed over the island was one of the major factors that caused the situation to be so bad. According to weather experts, the prolonged direct hit resulted in larger storm surges because the hurricane was hovering over the island through multiple high tides.

Kara Doran, leader of the USGS Coastal Change Hazards Storm Team, said that slow-moving hurricanes that remain at sea for long periods of time tend to build up large storm waves, which can sometimes travel hundreds of miles.

The Bahamian government has given no official death toll, but the expected forecast is grim. Prime Minister of The Bahamas Hubert Minnis gave a press conference in the wake of the direct hit, and told reporters that this was the worst storm the Bahamas had ever seen. Minnis told the Nassau Guardian that rescue teams won’t be able to conduct search and rescue missions for hurricane victims on Great Abaco Island until Wednesday.

Because the storm was so bad and there were so many people evacuated from the Bahamas, there are very few photos or videos showing the extent of the damage. However, some footage was posted online by people who stayed on the island and managed to keep themselves safe.

Minister of Agriculture and Marco City MP Michael Pintard was one of the people who were able to capture some footage of the storm while it was at its peak. His footage can be seen below.

There were also a few news broadcasts that were on location to show the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, such as ABC World News Tonight with David Muir.

Catastrophic damage reported in northwest Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian

‘CATASTROPHIC’ HURRICANE: Marcus Moore reports from the Abaco Islands, after Hurricane Dorian made landfall in northwest Bahamas as a massive Category 5 storm, calling the situation “pure hell,” adding, “this will no doubt be a deadly event.”

Dorian looks like an extremely threatening storm from space, the following image, posted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, shows satellite imagery of the hurricane as it slowly moves towards the United States.

The National Hurricane Center has reported that the storm could go in any direction at this point. If just a slight change in timing or wind occurs, the hurricane could end up turning north and not make landfall at all, but many people in the US are not willing to take that chance.

Nancy Pelosi Reelected As House Speaker In Narrow Vote





Nancy Pelosi won another term as Speaker of the House of Representatives on Sunday, after a narrow vote.

80-year-old Pelosi will hold the position for a second consecutive two-year term and fourth overall, having previously been elected in 2007, 2009 and 2019.

Pelosi has served as a US representative from California since 1987. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and, until the inauguration of Kamala Harris as Vice President, is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.

As House speaker, Pelosi is second in the presidential line of succession, after the vice president.

During her first speakership, she was instrumental in the passage of many of the Obama administration’s landmark bills, including the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the 2010 Tax Relief Act.

Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 after the Republican Party won a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections.

She retained her role as leader of the House Democratic Caucus and returned to the role of House minority leader. In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House.

When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, Pelosi was again elected speaker, becoming the first former speaker to return to the post since Sam Rayburn in 1955.

Under Pelosi’s leadership, the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019.

Despite supporting the $2000 checks for struggling Americans, Pelosi, along with everyone in congress have provoked anger from citizens who see them as being out of touch with the average people.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) estimated in 2009 that Pelosi’s average net worth was $58 million which ranks her 13th among 25 wealthiest members of Congress.

Roll Call said Pelosi’s earnings are connected to her husband’s heavy investments in stocks that include Apple, Disney, Comcast, and Facebook. Roll Call reported that the Pelosis have $13.46 million in liabilities including mortgages on seven properties.

According to Roll Call, Pelosi and her husband hold properties “worth at least $14.65 million, including a St. Helena vineyard in Napa Valley worth at least $5 million, and commercial real estate in San Francisco”.

FAA Responds To Numerous Reports Of A UFO Over Hawaii





The FAA was notified after multiple people reported seeing an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in the sky over Leeward Oahu on Tuesday evening. Witnesses all over the region called into 911 at around 8:30 p.m.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said that there were no aircraft incidents or accidents in this area at the time of the reports, but multiple witnesses reported seeing a large blue object fall out of the sky and into the ocean.

Some of the witnesses managed to get video or photos of the incident.

Witness Misitina Sape told Hawaii News Now she captured a photo of the object at 8:26 p.m. near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli.

Another witness named Moriah said she had never been a believer in UFOs until she saw the object fall from the sky.

“I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see. They all said yea!” Moriah said.


They jumped in the car to follow the object and see what it was.

“I don’t know what it was,” she said. “This one was going so fast.”

About three miles down the road, they saw the object fall into the water.

She said that it was larger than a telephone pole but didn’t make any sound when it hit the ground.

“We called 911,” Moriah said, “For have like one cop or somebody for come out and come check em out.

She also says that they saw another light in the sky after the blue object fell into the water. She says that police saw the second light as well.

“My husband went look up and he seen the white one coming,” she said. “The white one was smaller. Was coming in the same direction as the blue one.”

FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor said the agency received a report from police Tuesday night about a possible plane down in the area “but had no aircraft disappear off radars. And no reports of overdue or missing aircraft.”

Earlier this year, the Pentagon announced the formation of a new task force that will be studying UFOs or “Unidentified Flying Objects.”

The formation of this new task force was revealed last year when the Pentagon acknowledged that military pilots were encountering aircraft that might not have been made by humans.

The new task force was officially revealed to the public after the Pentagon released declassified videos that appeared to show government aircraft interacting with UFOs in the sky.

One of the videos, taken from US Navy aircraft, seems to show the pilots chasing a UFO off the east coast of the United States.

Navy pilots reported spotting the objects flying around 30,000 feet in the air at hypersonic speeds and showing no visible engines or exhaust plumes typical of any known aircraft currently on Earth.

The new agency has been called, The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF).

Mitch McConnell’s House Vandalized Over $2,000 Checks





Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had his home vandalized this week, after blocking the vote to increase stimulus payments to $2,000.

Messages like ‘WERES MY MONEY’ and ‘MITCH K1LLS THE POOR.’ were spray-painted on the building.

Police said that they don’t have any suspects.

On Saturday, McConnell released a statement to the Louisville Courier Journal which read: “Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society. My wife and I have never been intimidated by this toxic playbook. We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”


In 2015, Time listed McConnell as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. McConnell is the longest-serving U.S. senator for Kentucky in history, and the longest-serving leader of U.S. Senate Republicans in history.

During the Trump administration, Senate Republicans, under McConnell’s leadership, broke records on the number of judicial nominees confirmed. Among those nominees were Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh who were recently confirmed to the Supreme Court.


McConnell’s critics have called him by a variety of different nicknames, including “Moscow Mitch”, “Cocaine Mitch”, the “Grim Reaper”, “Darth Vader”, “Rich Mitch”, “Nuclear Mitch”, and “Midnight Mitch.” On some occasions, he has even embraced these nicknames, although he was apparently unhappy with the more recent “Moscow Mitch.”

McConnell has a net worth of $35 million dollars, and many Americans feel that he is out of touch. He isn’t the only US politician that was a target for vandalism this week.


According to a report from TMZ this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had her house vandalized with a pig’s head and fake blood.

Spray painted in black on the white garage door were the messages “$2K,”  an apparent reference to the $2,000 COVID stimulus checks that have been held up in the U.S. Senate, as well as “CANCEL RENT!” and “WE WANT EVERYTHING!”
