5 Reasons Cleveland Is A Terrible Choice To Hold The GOP’s 2016 Convention

The Republican National Committee has selected Cleveland to host its 2016 convention, Chairman Reince Priebus announced on Tuesday. Though the GOP’s desire to carry Ohio’s 18 electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election undoubtedly played a major role in the selection, Republicans will be fighting an uphill battle. They haven’t carried the Buckeye State since 2004, and with good reason: Ohio, and Cleveland in particular, has been bucking Republican policies for years.

Here are five ways:
Cleveland is benefiting from $1.4 billion in stimulus funding.

Cleveland is helping expand Obamacare coverage to thousands of lower-income residents.

Cleveland is embracing marriage equality protections for LGBT couples.

Cleveland is supporting sensible new gun laws. (don't go crazy all you gun nuts)

Cleveland is recognizing climate change and lowering its carbon emissions.

The Cupcake bubble has crumbled

Cupcake shop Crumbs shuttering all its stores

NEW YORK- Crumbs says it is shuttering all its stores, a week after the struggling cupcake shop operator was delisted from the Nasdaq.

The New York City-based company said all employees were notified of the closures Monday. A representative for Crumbs could not immediately say how many workers were affected or how many stores it had remaining on its last day.

"Regrettably Crumbs has been forced to cease operations and is immediately attending to the dislocation of its employees while it evaluates its limited remaining options," the company said in an emailed statement. That will include filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation.

The laugher for the day: Tony Perkins Fears Obama Will Start Putting Christians In Jail Any Day Now

Tony Perkins invited Fox News’ go-to-Christian-persecution-commentator Todd Starnes to join him on the weekend edition of “Washington Watch,” where Starnes pointed to recent remarks by Rick Warren and Russell Moore warning of the imminent imprisonment of Christians in America as proof that Christians will indeed soon face jail sentences.

Perkins, who recently warned that gay rights advocates are about to launch an anti-Christian Holocaust, naturally agreed that such arrests are going to “play out very quickly in our day.”

The Family Research Council president told Starnes: “I do think that it could very well come to that in our lifetime. A few years ago I didn’t think it would, not this quickly, but as we have seen the aggressive nature of this administration and this president and the open hostility of this administration toward orthodox faith — we have seen it in the HHS mandate, we have seen it in the numerous cases regarding marriage — I think it is going to come down to that.”

Who pulled the cord? - Emergency slide inflates mid flight

Emergency Evacuation Slide Deploys Midair On United Flight

June 30 (Reuters) - A United Airlines flight bound for southern California with 101 people on board was diverted to Wichita, Kansas on Sunday night after an emergency evacuation chute inflated inside the aircraft in mid-flight, the airline said.

United flight 1463, which was carrying 96 passengers with five crew members on board, was bound for Orange County's John Wayne Airport, south of Los Angeles, when the emergency chute accidentally deployed, the airline said.

"The flight diverted to Wichita ... No one was injured and the flight landed safely," United said in a statement. The Boeing 737-700 took off from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

American interests translated to Oil Companies interests

As the president talks about sending advisers to Iraq, he said "We will be helping Iraqis as they take the fight to terrorists who threaten the Iraqi people, the region, and American interests as well."

We all know the only interest that Americans have in Iraq is oil. And protecting that only means we are protecting several corporations interests. The first Iraq war was about oil, the second Iraq war was about oil, and this is as well.

Deadline Set For Claims In Freedom Industries Case

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A federal bankruptcy judge has set an Aug. 1 deadline for financial claims by West Virginia residents and businesses affected by a January chemical spill in Charleston that contaminated the local water supply.

Proof of claims forms can be obtained and filed on the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's website. The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1lYAOpF) reports business losses must be accompanied by documentation, while residents don't need such documentation for personal damage.

A spill of the coal-cleaning agent crude MCHM at Freedom Industries' plant along the Elk River contaminated 300,000 people's tap water in nine counties. Residents were ordered not to use tap water for up to 10 days except for flushing toilets and putting out fires.

Dozens of individuals and businesses sued Freedom after the spill, many saying they lost profits and wages while their workplaces remained shuttered for days without clean water. Those legal cases were frozen when Freedom filed for bankruptcy protection eight days after the spill.

The Freedom case's claims agent, James W. Layne Jr., said people should not rely on those previously filed civil lawsuits. They should instead file bankruptcy claims.
