Politico’s Thrush Politicizes Oklahoma Tornado

The destructive tornado that destroyed the quiet town of Moore, Oklahoma was only a few hours gone. The devastation had yet to be measured, and the dead barely counted much less mourned and laid to rest. Politico‘s Glenn Thrush felt it was already time to politicize the event by scolding Oklahoma’s Senators because they are against global warming and big government spending.   http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism by WARNER TODD HUSTON

New York Times:

Vast Oklahoma Tornado Kills at Least 91  —  MOORE, Okla. — A giant tornado, a mile wide or more, killed at least 91 people, 20 of them children, as it tore across parts of Oklahoma City and its suburbs Monday afternoon, flattening homes, flinging cars through the air and crushing at least two schools.

Tulane S Walker breaks neck in hit to helmet

TULSA, Okla. — Tulane safety Devon Walker suffered a broken neck and collapsed lung Saturday in a head-to-head collision with a teammate during a game with Tulsa, according to a Tulane trainer.

Walker was revived on the field and a tracheotomy was performed. Walker is currently in the emergency and trauma center at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, but there is no further update on his condition.

According to the Johns Hopkins Hospital‘s website, an injury to the neck at the first and second vertebrae in the spinal column — and especially lower in the third through fifth vertebrae — can affect respiratory muscles and the ability to breathe.

The injury occurred on the last play of the first half. Walker had a helmet-to-helmet collision with teammate Julius Warmsley while trying to tackle Tulsa back Willie Carter. Walker then rolled on his back and didn’t move.

FOX reported he stopped breathing when emergency medical workers removed his jersey and shoulder pads. The network said workers administered CPR and put in an IV before Walker began breathing again.

A hush went over the crowd at H.A. Stadium as Walker was attended to on the field. Several coaches were in tears. Spectators bowed their heads as someone on the field led the stadium in prayer.

Walker is a senior majoring in cell and molecular biology. His brother, Raynard, told The Associated Press that their mother was watching the game on television when her son was injured.

The family was waiting for an update on Walker’s condition, he said.

“We haven’t heard much at all,” he added. “We’re still kind of in the dark right now.”

Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson told a FOX Sports sideline TV reporter after the 45-10 loss that he hadn’t received an update on Walker’s condition, but said the injury had devastated his team.

“He’s one of us, and he’s a good kid,” Johnson said.

Until WE have the second coming of Charles Martel, this crap ain’t gonna’ stop!

25 minutes ago (Reuters) via Breitbart

The Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations welcomed the ruling, calling it “a victory for the Constitution and for the right of all Americans to freely practice their faith.”

Oklahoma’s “Save Our State Amendment,” which was approved by 70 percent of state voters in 2010, bars Oklahoma state courts from considering or using Sharia law.

The lawsuit challenging the measure was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Awad, who is director of the Oklahoma chapter of CAIR.
