We will now have a balance of power, which is a very good thing for our republic. Signs of an awakening are everywhere tonight. The giant is stirring. Do not stop speaking and living American values.
Who is the giant this buffoon speaks of?
If real, absolutely none. The Vegetation, not burned. Vehicle on its side, obviously not driven there. Vehicle's on top of each other, obviously not driven there. Power lines and telephone pole over vehicles. Concrete traffic barrier. Helicopter completely burned.

Andy, if the rest of the world had to reimburse us for everything we've done for them they'd all be broke.
They're a bunch of ungrateful parasites.
"There will be many strange beasts upon the Earth in those days, some from the past and some that we have never seen. The nature of mankind will appear strange in these times we walk between worlds and we will house many spirits even within our bodies After a time we will again walk with our brothers from the Stars, and rebuild this Earth. But not until the Purifier has left his mark upon the universe. "No thing living will go untouched, here or in the heavens. The way through this time it is said is to be found in our hearts, and reuniting with our spiritual self. Getting simple and returning to living with and upon the Earth and in harmony with her creatures. Remembering that we are the caretakers, the fire keepers of the Spirit. Our relatives from the Stars are coming home to see how well we have faired in our journey.
Ethiopia arrests 27 senior military officials over allegations of mass corruption
Tsegaye said the military-linked conglomerate Metal and Engineering Corporation (MeTEC), which is building several mega infrastructure projects, is suspected of being responsible for the vast majority of corrupt practices.
"MeTEC officials and civilians close to them were involved in the illicit purchases of a plane, ships, cranes and other equipment and pocketed a portion of the purchased money," said Tsegaye.
The attorney general also said 36 other suspects, mostly intelligence officers, had been arrested over alleged human right abuses including torture, murder, rapes and enforced disappearances.
ADDIS ABABA, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopia's Attorney General Berhanu Tsegaye said on Monday that 27 senior military figures had been detained over the weekend over allegations of mass corruption.
In a press conference given in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, Tsegaye said the corrupt activities, which had a span of six years from 2011 to 2017, involved purchases without tender bids of goods worth 2 billion U.S. dollars including a plane, ships and cranes.
Several on the list are non-profit organizations, but GIJN also has learned that some of the largest commercial firms are prepared to help journalists and provide images (see below).
Given the technical issues involved, reporters may be well advised to seek expert help.
“I’d rather have journalists spend their time and effort in doing the story and crafting a great piece than sitting at a computer and scratching their heads saying what can a Sentinel 2 image do that a Landsat 8 image can’t,” commented one veteran in the field who works for a group that helps journalists.
He and others who work regularly with satellite imagery believe that journalists can do much more with satellite images.
