Ben Carson Moves Within 5 Points Of Donald Trump In Latest Iowa Poll

Ben Carson Edging Close To Front-Runner Trump In Latest Iowa Poll – Bloomberg

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has emerged as a leading Republican presidential candidate in Iowa and is closing in on frontrunner Donald Trump in the state that hosts the first 2016 nomination balloting contest.

The latest Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows billionaire Trump with the support of 23 percent of likely Republican caucus participants, followed by Carson at 18 percent. When first and second choices are combined, Carson is tied with Trump.

Trump finds himself in a vastly better position than when the previous Iowa Poll was taken. He has become a credible presidential candidate to many likely Republican caucus-goers. The real estate mogul is rated favorably by 61 percent and unfavorably by 35 percent, an almost complete reversal since the Iowa Poll in May. He finds his highest ratings among those planning to attend the caucuses for the first time (69 percent) and limited-government Tea Party activists (73 percent). Just 29 percent say they could never vote for him, a number cut in half since May.

Although he isn’t generating the headlines enjoyed by Trump, Carson has quietly built a dedicated network of supporters in Iowa. During the past month, he also aired more ads than any other presidential candidate in Iowa. Carson has the highest favorability rating among Republican candidates, with 79 percent of likely GOP caucus-goers seeing him positively.

Those glowing views of Carson, who has a compelling life story and is seeking to become the nation’s second black president, could make it hard for Trump or other rivals to attack him as the campaign heats up this fall. Christian conservatives, who represent nearly 40 percent of likely caucus participants in the poll, may be starting to coalesce around the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins.

The poll displays the political benefit, at least for now, of not being part of the Republican establishment. When their totals are combined, Trump and Carson – two men without any elected experience – are backed by more than 4 in 10 likely caucus participants. Add in former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who also has never held elective office, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is running an explicitly anti-establishment campaign, and the total reaches 54 percent of the likely electorate.

“Trump and Carson, one bombastic and the other sometimes soft-spoken, could hardly be more different in their outward presentations,” said J. Ann Selzer, president of West Des Moines-based Selzer & Co., which conducted the poll. “Yet they’re both finding traction because they don’t seem like politicians and there’s a strong demand for that right now.”

.

.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, the previous Iowa frontrunner, has been hurt the most by the Trump and Carson summer surges and is now backed by just 8 percent of likely caucus-goers, less than half what he recorded in the last Iowa Poll in late May. Cruz, who will need to cut into Carson’s support among social conservatives if he’s to advance in Iowa, is tied with Walker at 8 percent.

Jeb Bush, who continues to face major headwinds in Iowa, scored below Walker and Cruz. The former Florida governor is backed by just 6 percent, has one of the highest unfavorable ratings among the 17 Republican candidates tested, and has the support of just 16 percent of those who consider themselves business-oriented establishment Republicans, the group most central to his brand.

Bush’s fellow Floridian, Senator Marco Rubio, is also backed by 6 percent. He’s closely followed by Fiorina, who is supported by 5 percent after her strong showing in the Aug. 6 debate.

In the 2008 and 2012 Republican caucuses, Christian conservatives broke late in the race and helped determine the outcome in Iowa. While some of their leaders have expressed skepticism about the potential to unify behind one candidate in such a crowded race, there’s an opening for that. More than three-quarters of Christian conservatives in the poll say they could be convinced to back someone other than their first or second choice, if they could be assured that another Christian conservative would win.

At the moment, Carson is leading with voters in that bloc at 23 percent, followed by Trump at 16 percent and Cruz and Walker tied at third. If his competitors can successfully raise questions about Trump’s credentials as a Christian conservative, they could potentially peel off some of the front-runner’s support.

One major unknown for the caucuses is the size of the electorate, which has been around 120,000 on the Republican side for the past two Iowa caucuses. One of Trump’s campaign goals is to get thousands of new people to vote, a move that helped Barack Obama score an upset on the Democratic side in 2008.

First-time caucus-goers are clearly an important part of Trump’s Iowa base. Among those who say they’ll be attending for the first time, Trump is ahead of Carson, 28 percent to 20 percent.

For now, the poll suggests about a fifth of those attending the Feb. 1 precinct meetings will be doing so for the first time. That’s comparable to four years ago, when 24 percent said that on the Republican side in an October 2011 Iowa Poll.

Trump’s supporters in Iowa a have a higher level of trust in their candidate than others in the field to make the right decisions, if he makes it to the White House. Among all Republicans likely to attend the caucuses, 41 percent want their candidate to be clear about the specific policies they would address if elected, while 57 percent trust their candidate to figure it out once elected.

For Trump, nearly two-thirds of his supporters trust him to figure out the right decisions once in office. That’s in keeping with a claim he made to reporters Aug. 15, shortly after landing by helicopter outside the Iowa State Fair, saying it’s mostly the media that cares about policy papers and positions.

Among most of the subgroups measured in the poll, Trump has the advantage, although Carson beats him or comes close with several. Carson has an 11-percentage-point advantage over Trump among seniors and 7-percentage-point edge among Christian conservatives.

“I’m sick and tired of the political class,” said Lisa Pilch, 54, a middle school physical education teacher leaning toward Carson who lives in Springville, Iowa. “I just like his tone and think he’s someone who could pull us together, rather than the polarization we have right now. He has a lot of wisdom, even if he doesn’t have political savviness.”

While Carson is doing slightly better than Trump among women, the billionaire has the advantage among men, 28 percent to 17 percent.

“He’s got a no-nonsense approach,” said Patrick Messmore, 32, a construction equipment sales manager who lives near Grundy Center and plans to back Trump. “His history as a businessman is potentially a good change for our country, so that we don’t just have another life-time politician taking over as president.”

In some ways, Messmore sees Trump as an antidote to Bush. “I’m not OK with another Bush presidency,” he said. “We’ve had two of them now and I don’t see that there will be enough of a different approach than his dad or brother had. It’s just not something I’m interested in.”

.

.
The poll shows Walker and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, especially, aren’t performing anywhere close to earlier expectations.

Paul, who was backed by just 4 percent, was perceived a year ago to have an advantage in Iowa, given the third-place finish in the 2012 caucuses recorded by his father, former Representative Ron Paul of Texas. In October, his favorable rating outweighed his unfavorable by nearly 3-to-1.

“Whatever advantage he had has eroded,” Selzer said. “Now, more Iowa caucus-goers have negative than positive feelings about him.”

For Walker, who has been in a slump since his lackluster debate performance, the poll is certain to further reduce expectations around his performance in Iowa, which had grown to the point where anything short of a win would have been viewed as a loss. One upside for him in the poll: Besides Carson, he’s the only candidate to exceed 70 percent in favorability.

Iowa Republicans are showing little interest in re-runs. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who won the 2008 Iowa Republican caucuses, is at 4 percent. He’s followed at 2 percent by candidates who are governors, Chris Christie of New Jersey, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and John Kasich of Ohio.

Former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who narrowly beat eventual nominee Mitt Romney in the 2012 caucuses, is backed by just 1 percent, the same level of support recorded by former Texas Governor Rick Perry, who is also struggling in his second White House bid even amid heavy spending in Iowa on the part of a super political action committee backing him.

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, former New York Governor George Pataki and former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore all recorded support of less than 1 percent.

The survey, taken Aug. 23-26, included 400 likely Republican caucus participants. On the full sample, it has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.

.

.
Besides the nearly the nearly 40 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers who say Christian conservative is the best way to identify them, “business-oriented establishment Republicans” and Tea Party activists are roughly tied as the next largest groups, at 22 percent and 21 percent. Those who feel they are most closely aligned with the “liberty movement,” a bloc associated with Paul, represent only about 8 percent.

To offer another assessment of candidate strength – something difficult to divine in such a crowded field – Selzer created an index built on multiple measures in the poll. The index takes into account first and second choices, as well as a question that was asked on whether respondents could ever – or would never – support each candidate they didn’t name as their first or second pick. First choices were given double weight, while “ever support” was given a half weighting.

Using that system, Carson is narrowly ahead of Trump, 75 to 73. Walker comes next at 55, followed by Cruz at 53 and Rubio at 50. The index and never/ever question also show some of the candidates could struggle to expand their support. Nearly half of likely Republican caucus participants, 48 percent, say they could never support Christie. For Paul, it’s 43 percent and for Bush it’s 39 percent.

Black Lives Matter… Just Not In Baltimore, Apparently

45 Murders In 31 Days: Looking Back At Baltimore’s Deadliest Month – Baltimore Sun

.

.
Taylor Street and Delvin Trusty began dating in high school after he sent her a message on social media. They attended prom together, and three years later were expecting their first child.

When she gave birth this month, she was surrounded with support, including Trusty’s parents and brother, and her mother, sister and cousin – but not Trusty.

Their daughter, a 9-pound, 11-ounce girl named Avah, was born one month to the day that Trusty was gunned down in Northeast Baltimore. “I text his phone still,” Street said. “I send pictures of the baby.”

Trusty was among 45 people killed in Baltimore in July, a toll that matched the deadliest month in the city’s modern history and came amid a surge in violent crime surge that followed Freddie Gray‘s death. The last time 45 people were killed in one month was in August 1972, when the city had about 275,000 more residents.

The deaths occurred across the city, overwhelmingly in historically impoverished neighborhoods. All but one of the victims were male, all but two of them black. Many had serious criminal records. The victims also included a 5-month-old boy and a 53-year-old grandmother, a teen stabbed to death in a dispute over a cell phone and a carryout deliveryman killed in a robbery.

They left behind scores of grieving relatives, including dozens of children and stepchildren who will grow up without fathers – a city’s deadly legacy.

The Baltimore Sun sought to profile each of the victims, through interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors and police, as well as information on social media – and to chronicle the impact on those left behind.

Tamara Stokes hasn’t been able to break to her young children what happened to their father, Robert Lee Jackson, 33, who was killed July 13 in East Baltimore.

“She doesn’t even know that he’s G-O-N-E,” Stokes says, spelling out the word as her 3-year-old – one of two children they had together – babbles in the background at her home. “She doesn’t know what’s going on. She doesn’t know that he was K-I-L-L-E-D.”

Dechonne McNair, 22, tattooed a cross onto his arm in honor of his father, John F. Davis. The 48-year-old mechanic, who went by the nickname “Lucky,” was gunned down near his Cherry Hill home on July 6. He had eight children.

“I still feel like he’s still here sometimes. But he’s gone,” McNair said. “I miss my father.”

The daughter of Damon Tisdale, 33, who was killed July 15 in West Baltimore, wrote a message in the program for his funeral at Perkins Square Baptist Church: “I miss you so much and I just can’t take all this with me being so young Daddy. I love you so much.

“It hurts that you’re not here to see me grow-up.”

Dr. Geoffrey Greif, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work, said growing up without a father can cause children to have questions about their identity, and seek out other role models. In many cases, they may find that in another relative, a coach, or pastor.

“But when positive role models are not there, sometimes it puts them at risk for getting involved with people that are not looking out for their best interests,” Greif said. “Communities have to come together and help the children to realize that while this is a significant and very upsetting and huge loss, there are people in that child’s life who are going to step up and try to support them.”

Jahi Faw, an uncle of victim Shyteak Lawrence, said he’s trying to be that role model for Lawrence’s children, who came to his home on a recent weekend for a sleepover and to make S’mores. He wants to take them camping as often as possible, “just to get them outside of the asphalt living of the city, to give them another perspective on life.”

“It’s important to understand, we have to pay more attention to the people who are alive,” Faw said. “I love [Shyteak] with all my heart, but I believe he’s in a better place. If we’re not telling people that we love them today, you may not have that chance tomorrow.”

Myron Higgins grew up without a father but said he had filled that void with uncle Gregory Tavon Higgins, who, despite being incarcerated for 20 years, was always there for him.

“I just latched on to him. Even though he wasn’t there physically, he was always there,” Myron said. “He helped me change my life.”

Gregory Tavon Higgins was released last year, and together they began pursuing business ventures including a trucking company, as well as producing music. During the protests over Gray’s death, they grabbed a video camera and filmed a video for one of Myron’s songs, a black power anthem called “Set It Off.”

Higgins, 40, was fatally shot July 11 in East Baltimore.

“We were like one person,” Myron said, “and I’m really trying to find my way, by myself.”

The spike in violence began soon after Gray died in April from an injury sustained in police custody. In May, Baltimore recorded 42 homicides which at the time was the highest monthly total since 1972. That was surpassed by July’s toll, and in August there has been an average of about one homicide per day. Already, the city has recorded more homicides this year than in all of 2014, when 211 people were killed.

In discussing the violence, city officials and police leaders have offered several theories. Among them: a dispute within the Black Guerrilla Family gang and the possible fallout in the illegal drug trade after pharmaceutical drugs were looted during the April riot.

A review of the July cases with police shows mostly petty disputes and cases being investigated as drug-related.

Capt. Donald Bauer is commander of the city homicide unit, which has handled more than 215 cases so far this year. He sits in a tidy corner office on the fifth floor of police headquarters, a stack of case folders piled neat and high on his desk. As he flips through them, he notes the long criminal records of many victims, and says police are working diligently to solve the cases.

“We take every case on its merit, and continue to investigate individually,” Bauer said. “We’re drawing some connections, using science and technology with our federal partners, and hopefully additional cooperation from the community will help us put these down.”

He notes that amid a sharply increased workload, police have solved more cases than at this point last year. Still, 11 of July’s 45 cases have been solved, and the closure rate for the year stands at 33 percent.

Fifteen-year-old Josh Burnett was one of the youngest victims in July, and the person suspected of killing him was even younger – 13.

Burnett’s parents said he was a hard worker who washed cars, cut grass and sold water to make money, and he was constantly engaged in youth sports.

He confronted the younger boy for stealing his cell phone on a Northwest Baltimore playground, and was stabbed in the heart, police say. The suspect, charged as a juvenile, has not been identified publicly.

“This, to me, is big boy stuff,” said father Remus Burnett, who thinks the suspect should be charged as an adult. “He went straight to the heart, a decision you might look at as an adult decision. If you can make an adult decision, you can do adult time.”

Bauer points to the July 24 killing of Daquan Mason, 20, as an example of another “innocent victim.” Though his family could not be reached for comment, they recalled in his obituary that he enjoyed skateboarding, playing video games and making music. They also recalled his “protective spirit.”

Police believe Mason was killed when he stood up for a relative who was getting picked on. “He steps in and intervenes, and winds up getting shot,” Bauer said. The case is unsolved.

Then there is Marcus Downer, a 23-year-old who was gunned down in Northwest Baltimore on July 26 outside a relative’s home. Downer, a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts, had performed in plays such as The Wiz and The Lion King as a youngster. Now, he was hoping to move to California with his mother to pursue an acting career, relatives said. Police said an argument led to his shooting death, but have yet to make an arrest.

Police attribute other homicides to drug-related issues. They are investigating whether Donte Dixon Jr., a 29-year-old rapper known as G-Rock, was killed over a drug dispute. Lamont Randall, 39, killed in a quadruple shooting that left two others dead, was a ranking member of the Black Guerrilla Family, according to police, who say at least three victims in other cases were members of the Bloods gang.

While the some of the victims’ criminal pasts were believed to be tied to their deaths, for others it was only a footnote. Eric Renard Forrester had been charged with and acquitted of murder in 2002. But the reason for his death on a basketball court in Southwest Baltimore is believed to be a robbery of a dice game, police said. Raja’ee Sincere served more than 20 years for murder, but police believe he was killed because he stepped into a dispute at a bar.

The effect on families, many of whom relied on the victims to make ends meet, has been devastating.

Dante Barnes, who was killed July 11 in East Baltimore, was the breadwinner of the family, and fiancee Andrea Young said his death forced them to move out of their home and into hotel rooms and a relative’s house, before finally finding a new residence.

Young is disappointed Barnes didn’t get to continue on his second chance after spending 14 years in prison for assault and a gun crime. He was working a janitorial job and had just gotten an HVAC certification, while serving as a mentor to her four children.

Phyllis Poole, 59, has a large photo of her youngest son, Tyrone Johnson, from his funeral hanging on the wall of her living room. Poole said authorities haven’t told her if they’ve made an arrest in his murder or what the motive was. She prays every night that the killer will turn himself in.

“This space is really empty in my heart right now,” she said. “I think that’s the only way I’ll be able to rest, is that his killer be caught… I need to ask this person in court: ‘Why did you take my child from me?'”

Poole said she is one of too many grieving mothers in Baltimore experiencing “a parent’s worst nightmare.”

“The murder rate in this city is terrible. It’s sad in my heart to see all these young men getting killed down here,” she said. “This is hurting a lot of mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers.”

Tona Burrell’s boyfriend of 11 years, Steven Justin Lewis, was killed July 12 in Northeast Baltimore.

“When I see something on the news about the amount of people, homicides for that month, I always think, ‘My baby is a part of that number…” said Burrell. “He is not just another number added to the countless homicides, he was a wonderful person with a huge heart and his family meant everything to him.”

When buffoons are celebrated…………………

……………we get noted idiots like Cornel West on CNN as if he has anything relevant or important to add

Cornel West couldn’t seem to answer Carol Costello‘s question about whether or not the broadcast shooting death of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward was racially motivated.

During the Thursday morning editon of CNN Newsroom, Costello opened West’s visit by asking whether or not he believed “race [played] a factor” in the actions of Bryce Williams, real name Vester Flanagan, during his “rampage” on Wednesday. In response, West delivered one of the most verbose, convoluted and uncomfortable non-answers of the topic of race and violence ever witnessed.

Some of the more academic bits of West’s ramble include:

“The fundamental question is how do you get at this spiritual decay and this moral decadence in this society as a whole? All of us have to deal with rage. How do you filter that rage through love?”

“The problem is we live in a society where people don’t give or get enough love. They don’t give or get enough justice. They don’t give or get enough community. When you’re isolated and insulated, that rage bubbles up.”

“Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”

Good freaking grief, shut up already Cornel! You are a rambling. incoherent buffoon. Of course, I must also note that Carol Costello is not all that sharp either. I mean she actually asks IF race MIGHT have had something to do with the killing in Virginia? The guy who did the shooting said he wanted to inspire a RACE WAR! For goodness sake, how hard can it be to do the math on that one Carol Costello? Of course, to a Leftist, the idea that a Black can be racist is foreign. Only Whites can be racist right? This is what they teach in college now, which explains why so many idiots are college grads!

Just another reason to say Muck Fexico!

It is too bad America is not the imperialistic nation the Left insists we are. If we were think how much better off Mexico and its people would be? And, as an added bonus, we would not have to hear the corrupt, race pimping, leeches that run Mexico whining!

We had better drop the idea of putting an end to the birthright citizenship nonsense that combined with chain migration is allowing millions of unskilled peasants from Third World countries to climb aboard the welfare gravy train. Texas tried it, and got a stern warning from Mexico:

The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State.

The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican Consulate to undocumented immigrants. …

The families who are suing say that Texas is violating the 14th amendment and that the state is superseding federal immigration laws.

The sad fact is that Mexico is NOT our friend, as it does not respect our sovereignty our laws, or our liberties

Your Daley Gator WTF Story O’ The Day

Woman, 80, Trampled To Death In Venezuelan Supermarket Stampede – London Telegraph

.

.
An 80-year-old Venezuelan woman died, possibly from trampling, in a scrum outside a state supermarket selling subsidized goods, the opposition and media said on Friday.

The melee at the store in Sabaneta, the birthplace of former Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, was the latest such incident in the South American nation where economic hardship and food shortages are creating long queues and scuffles.

The opposition Democratic Unity coalition said Maria Aguirre died and another 75 people were injured – including five security officials – in chaotic scenes when National Guard troops sought to control a 5,000-strong crowd with teargas.

“Due to the shortage of food… the desperation is enormous,” local opposition politician Andres Camejo said, according to the coalition’s website. It published a photo of an elderly woman’s body lying inert on a concrete floor.

Camejo said thieves had also attacked the crowd, members of which were seeking to buy cheap food on offer at an outlet of the state’s Mercal supermarket chain in Barinas state.

There was no confirmation of the incident by authorities.

El Universal newspaper reported that Aguirre was knocked to the ground during jostling in the crowd, while the pro-opposition El Nacional said she was crushed in a stampede.

Another person was killed and dozens detained following looting of supermarkets in Venezuela’s southeastern city of Ciudad Guayana earlier this month.

President Nicolas Maduro accuses opponents of deliberately stirring up trouble, exaggerating incidents, and sabotaging the economy to try and bring down his socialist government.

Critics, though, say incidents of unrest are symptoms of the increasing hardships Venezuela’s 29 million people are facing due to a failed state-led economic model. Low oil prices are exacerbating economic tensions in the OPEC nation.

Leftist Enviroweenie Cooks And Eats Roadkill On Live TV (Video)

Environmentalist George Monbiot Skins, Butchers, Cooks And Eats A Squirrel On Live TV – Digital Spy

Environmentalist George Monbiot has sparked debate by skinning, butchering, cooking and eating a squirrel on live TV.

The Guardian columnist attracted criticism after revealing that he had eaten a roadkill squirrel, and later wrote a 2,360-word piece in the newspaper justifying his actions.

.

.
“There are millions of squirrels, rabbits, pigeons, deer that are killed every year, and a lot of them are landfilled,” Monbiot said on the BBC’s Newsnight as he butchered a squirrel bought from a farm shop.

“It doesn’t have to be. It’s not very nice! But meat production isn’t. But at least there’s no further ethical problem here.”

He continued: “I’m just cutting through the tail vertebrae – the tail bone in other words – but not the skin. It’s quite a delicate operation, that. A super-sharp knife, by the way.

“The cutting along a little bit each leg. This is a rather fat old squirrel – a lot of meat on it, but the older they are the tougher they get, so they do have to be marinated.”

It’s not the first time Monbiot has controversially grabbed the headlines, having had to make a £25,000 charity settlement with the late Lord McAlpine after wrongly implicating him in the North Wales child sex abuse scandal.

Monbiot issued a full and unreserved apology over a tweet sent to his 56,000 followers, which said: “I looked up Lord #McAlpine on t’internet. It says the strangest things. I can confirm that Lord #McAlpine was Conservative Party Treasurer when Mrs Thatcher was prime minister.”

Barack Obama Proves Once Again That He’s A Complete Imbecile

Obama: ‘…As We Push Our Economy And The World To Ultimately Transition Off Fossil Fuels’ – CNS

.

.
President Barack Obama said in his weekly address today that four villages in Alaska are in “imminent danger” because of climate change and that safety will be his administration’s top consideration in permitting offshore oil and gas drilling “as we push our economy and the world to ultimately transition off of fossil fuels.”

‘America will lead the world to meet the threat of climate change before it’s too late’

Here are key excerpts from the president’s address:

Alaska’s glaciers are melting faster too, threatening tourism and adding to rising seas. And if we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century, changing all sorts of industries forever.

This is all real. This is happening to our fellow Americans right now. In fact, Alaska’s governor recently told me that four villages are in “imminent danger” and have to be relocated. Already, rising sea levels are beginning to swallow one island community.

Think about that. If another country threatened to wipe out an American town, we’d do everything in our power to protect ourselves. Climate change poses the same threat, right now…

Since the United States and China worked together to set ambitious climate targets last year, leading by example, many of the world’s biggest emitters have come forward with new climate plans of their own. And that’s a good sign as we approach this December’s global climate negotiations in Paris.

Now, one of the ways America is leading is by transitioning away from dirty energy sources that threaten our health and our environment, and by going all-in on clean, renewable energy sources like wind and solar…

The bottom line is, safety has been and will continue to be my administration’s top priority when it comes to oil and gas exploration off America’s precious coasts – even as we push our economy and the world to ultimately transition off of fossil fuels.

So I’m looking forward to talking with Alaskans about how we can work together to make America the global leader on climate change around the globe… Because what’s happening in Alaska is happening to us. It’s our wakeup call. And as long as I’m President, America will lead the world to meet the threat of climate change before it’s too late.

Guess what some racist Black radicals were urging the night before the racist in Virginia slaughtered two White people?

Via Allen West

Here is the transcript

An unidentified black man said “when those mother f**kers are by themselves, that’s when when we should start f***ing them up. Like they do us, when a bunch of them ni**ers takin’ one of us out, that’s how we should roll up.”  He said, “Cause we already roll up in gangs anyway. There should be six or seven black mother f**ckers, see that white person, and then lynch their ass. Let’s turn the tables.”

They conspired that if “cops started losing people,” then “there will be a state of emergency.”

He speculated that one of two things would happen, “a big-ass [R’s?????] war,” or “ni**ers, they are going to start backin’ up.”

Notice that the caller on the radio show also seems to be referencing a “race war” — like Flanagan did in his suicide note/manifesto faxed to ABC News the next day.

He said, “We need to turn the tables on them. Our kids are getting shot out here. Somebody needs to become a sacrifice on their side.

“Find a mother f**ker that is alone. Snap his ass, and then f***in hang him from a damn tree. Take a picture of it and then send it to the mother f**kers.”

We “just need one example,” and “then people will start watchin’.” This will turn the tables on s**t, he said. He said this will start “a trickle-down effect.” He said that when one white person is hung and then they are just “flat-hanging,” that will start the “trickle-down effect.” He continued, “Black people are good at starting trends.”

Another black man spoke up saying they needed to kill “cops that are killing us. The first black male said, “That will be the best method right there.”

This is where the media could play a vital role. Why not report this. They certainly would if a tape of White people calling for mass murder was brought to light.

O’Malley And Sanders Claim DNC Rigging Nomination Process

O’Malley Challenges DNC Over ‘Rigged’ Debate Schedule – The Hill

.

.
Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley thinks the Democratic Party’s decision to limit the number of primary debates is tantamount to rigging the nomination process.

“Four debates and only four debates – we are told, not asked – before voters in our earliest states make their decision,” the presidential candidate said at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Summer Meeting on Friday.

“This sort of rigged process has never been attempted before,” he added. “One debate in Iowa. That’s it. One debate in New Hampshire. That’s all we can afford.”

After O’Malley’s speech wrapped up, observers noted palpable tension as he greeted DNC Chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

O’Malley had previously criticized the DNC’s decision to hold only four debates before early states cast votes as “undemocratic,” and questioned the legality of the schedule.

He has also said Democrats are making a “big mistake” by rushing to make Clinton the party’s nominee.

“I think it’s a big mistake for us as a party to circle the wagons around the inevitable front-runner,” O’Malley said on Thursday.

The first Democratic Party debate will be held on Oct. 13 in Las Vegas.

A RealClearPolitics polling average has Clinton leading the field at 47 percent support, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at 26 percent support and Vice President Biden at 14 percent support. O’Malley places fourth with just over 1 percent support.

Sanders: DNC Using Debates To Rig Primary – The Hill

.

.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) believes the Democratic Party is using its limited primary debate schedule to rig the nomination process.

“I do,” Sanders reportedly responded when asked Friday whether he agrees with former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s assertion that the debate system is “rigged.”

The two Democratic presidential candidates were speaking at the summer meeting of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in Minneapolis on Friday.

“This sort of rigged process has never been attempted before,” O’Malley said in his speech earlier Friday.

The DNC has drawn criticism for scheduling only four debates before the early-primary states cast their votes, and six total throughout the election cycle.

DNC spokeswoman Holly Shulman defended the schedule, saying it will “give plenty of opportunity for the candidates to be seen side-by-side.”

“I’m sure there will be lots of other forums for the candidates to make their case to voters, and that they will make the most out of every opportunity,” Shulman said in a statement, according to The Washington Post.

Sanders previously said he would not agree to additional debates unless all of the Democratic presidential candidates participated.

But he has expressed concern with the number of debates.

“At a time when many Americans are demoralized about politics and have given up on the political process, I think it’s imperative that we have as many debates as possible,” Sanders said in a statement earlier this month. “I look forward to working with the DNC to see if we can significantly expand the proposed debate schedule.”

“Further, I also think it is important for us to debate not only in the early states but also in many states which currently do not have much Democratic presidential campaign activity,” Sanders wrote in a letter to DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) in June.

The first Democratic Party debate will be held on Oct. 13 in Las Vegas.

Low-Life Coward Murders Deputy Sheriff At Gas Station In Houston, Texas (Video)

Man In Custody After Deadly Ambush In Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy – KTRK

.

.
A person of interest is in custody after the deadly ambush of a Harris County sheriff’s deputy, fatally gunned down without warning Friday night while filling up his patrol car at a northwest Harris County gas station.

We’ve learned the person of interest is inside the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in east Houston and continues to be questioned. So far, no one has been charged.

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, had just left an accident scene last night when he stopped by a gas station on Telge and West Road. As he was pumping gas, a man approached him from behind, said nothing and fired multiple shots. Once the deputy fell to the ground, authorities say the suspect fired more shots. Deputy Goforth was pronounced dead on the scene.

An intense manhunt covered Harris County for hours overnight. At about 2:30am, authorities converged on a home on Crystal Lake in Copperfield, led there by a tip. The focus of the investigation is on the red pickup truck in the home’s driveway. The person of interest was taken into custody at what’s said to be his mother’s house. His identity has not been released.

The man’s mother – who didn’t want to show her face or give her name – told Eyewitness News her son is innocent. She said, “My son is innocent. I was in the house with him, so when that happened, my son was home.”

Authorities arrested a suspect in the deadly ambush of Deputy Darren Goforth after an all-night manhunt.

Goforth was a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, assigned to the west district patrol. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

“This is a very tough moment right now for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. I can ask you if you give us your prayers and your thoughts,” said Deputy Thomas Gilliland with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. “It’s tough enough being a deputy and being in law enforcement in this country right now, but for people, the way that they are right now, I have no words for what this type of person did.”

Officers had described the suspect only as a dark-complexioned man who’s about 5 feet 11 inches tall. He had short hair, possibly a fade cut. He was wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts at the time of the shooting and fled the scene in a dark red Ford Ranger.

“It strikes us all at the heart of public service,” said Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman, who vowed to hunt the suspect down. “”I’ve been in law enforcement 45 years. I don’t recall another incident this cold-blooded and cowardly.”

“It’s an act of cowardice and brutality the likes of which I’ve never seen,” added Harris County DA Devon Anderson.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls tweeted this message of support this morning: “Despite the cowardice attack last night, we will continue to provide professional (law enforcement) services to our communities. Be careful out there.”

Dr. Kevin Pigg, Senior Pastor of Crossbridge Christian Church, felt moved to come out and pray with deputies overnight.

“That just rips my heart out, seeing anyone die, especially one who protects us like that,” he said. “You could just see the officers holding back the tears. I just felt led to pray with them.”

A witness named Mackenzie, who declined use of her last name, heard the shots ring out.

“We were driving on West Road and we heard the shots, and when I turned and looked, the lady was screaming over top of him. So we busted a U-turn into the parking lot and that’s when we saw what had happened,” she said.

The witness says she saw a woman sobbing over Deputy Goforth’s body.

“She was laying on top him. She was saying that was her best friend and that he had two kids,” Mackenzie said.

Mackenzie says the suspect was gone by the time she had pulled into the parking lot and called 911.

This shooting marks the first time a Texas law enforcement officer was fatally shot this year. This is the first officer slaying in the Houston-area since 2012.

Bob Goerlitz, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization, said the incident was “shocking.”

“We’ve been warned of things like this, because of public sentiment nationally and events over the last few years… It’s just horrific. That’s the only way to describe it.”

We’ve learned the non-profit, the 100 Club, is assisting Goforth’s family. The 62-year-old organization said today they will give the family a $20,000 check to help with any financial needs. The organization added in a statement today, “Additional financial support for the dependent family, which averages $300,000 per tragedy, will be made after an assessment of their needs is conducted.”

Trouble In Jeb Land

Top Jeb Fundraisers Leave Campaign Amid Troubling Signs – Politico

.

.
Three top Jeb Bush fundraisers abruptly parted ways with his presidential campaign on Friday, amid internal personality conflicts and questions about the strength of his candidacy, POLITICO has learned.

There are different versions of what transpired. The Florida-based fundraising consultants – Kris Money, Trey McCarley, and Debbie Alexander – have said that they voluntarily quit the campaign and were still working with Bush’s super PAC, Right to Rise Super PAC. Others said the three, who worked under the same contract, were let go because they were no longer needed for the current phase of the campaign.

None of the three immediately responded to requests for comment. Bush spokesman Tim Miller would only say that “Governor Bush has the widest and deepest fundraising operation of any candidate in the field. Ann Herberger – a longtime aide with more than two decades of experience in state and national politics – will continue to lead the operation in Florida with our team in Miami.”

One source attributed the departures to personality conflicts in the campaign, some involving Bush’s finance team.

“They were glad to go. This wasn’t a shock to anybody,” said one campaign source. “There were just some personality problems. It happens when you have a big organization like this, a big campaign. Some of the national people are tough to work for.”

Alexander, Money and McCarley have deep and longstanding ties to Florida’s GOP power structure. Money is close with former House Speaker Will Weatherford, McCarley’s part of Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam’s political team, and Alexander has been a member in good standing of Bush’s operation since he was governor.

“They raised a lot of money out of Florida. A lot,” said the campaign source. “So if anyone says they didn’t quit, it’s not true. They’re still working for the super PAC as well. This is not about them,” said one source. “This is about the campaign.”

Donors last week told POLITICO that they still felt good about Bush’s chances and that they weren’t worried about Bush’s recent slip from second to third place in averages of national polls. As the son and brother of former presidents, the former governor of the third-most populous state in the nation has a deep and seasoned donor base. Some said they’re less concerned with the campaign than with Jeb’s candidacy, which has so far failed to ignite Republicans.

But Bush’s fundraising pace has slowed in the late summer months. He’s likely to remain the GOP campaign’s top fundraiser, but Bush is also spending more than other candidates because he has a mammoth operation.

“Jeb has a big army, and that army needs to be fed,” said one campaign consultant familiar with the campaign’s internal numbers. “Jeb might not have a fundraiser problem. He might have a spending problem.”

#BlackLivesMatter does not care about Blacks at all

William Teach as the latest despicability from BLM

(Fox News) The boos began as soon as Washington’s mayor said she was putting more police officers on the streets in neighborhoods affected by violent crime. They didn’t let up for the next 18 minutes as Democrat Muriel Bowser laid out her plans to address an increase in homicides in the nation’s capital.

Bowser was repeatedly heckled and interrupted by a few dozen protesters affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement during her address Thursday inside the sweltering gymnasium of a long-shuttered school in southeast Washington.

That’s right, they’re seriously booing a plan to try and make high crime areas safer from criminals. BTW, Mayor Muriel Bowser is Black, and a member of the Democratic Party.

Go read the rest. I hope the black community starts to reject these Communist agitators that make up BLM. These thugs are the worst enemies of Black Americans frankly.
