    When it comes to the Trump administration’s temporary travel restrictions, everyone has an opinion. However, most people who say the order is heartless don’t have a fundamental understanding of the restrictions. They continue to repeat the lies spouted by MSNBC. “It’s a MUSLIM BAN!”   No. No it’s not.   There’s one response to the order that I believe everyone should watch– conservative and liberal alike. Over the weekend, Kimber highlighted the response from this U.S. Marine working in Iraq, and it’s so common sense and so straightforward, I have no idea how anyone could disagree with it.  ...

    SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Powerful winds during a night in which "all hell broke loose" have pushed a raging wildfire to the doorstep of this wealthy coastal city, threatening to destroy dozens more homes and leading to the evacuation of more than 20,000 people. Firefighters were putting out roof fires Friday as gusts drove the flames down from the steep canyons above Santa Barbara and started burning homes in the residential flatlands. Once tame, the fire front now stretches for five miles, city Fire Chief Andrew DiMizio said. "Literally last night, all hell broke loose," he said.
