Black Lives Matter Activist Fires 17 Shots Into Cop’s Car And Home – Gateway Pundit

A Black Lives Matter felon fired 17 shots into a police officer’s home and car. March Eugene Ratney also urinated in the interview room after his capture.

Ratney was wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt when he fired 17 rounds into a police officers car and home. He was arrested by this same officer several years ago.

FOX 59 reported, via Pamela Geller:

March Eugene Ratney, according to Department of Correction records, wasn’t due to be released from prison until this past June 6 after serving half of a 12-year sentence following his conviction as a serious violent felon with a weapon. Ten days later, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers were called to an east side address where Ratney’s sister said he had pulled a gun and threatened to kill her.

Investigators now report, and neighbors confirmed, Ratney, on parole, was the man clad in a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and screaming profanities at police, who shot up an IMPD officer’s house not far from his own home early this morning.

The officer and his family were uninjured.

“Think about this, this is your home,” said IMPD Chief Troy Riggs. “If there is one place in this world where you should always feel safe and your family should feel safe, it is in your home.”

The officer had just returned from work, but had not yet retired for the night, when approximately 17 shots were fired from a 9mm handgun into his house, fence and patrol car…

New GOP Platform: Build The Wall – Breitbart
.

.
The Republican Party Platform approved by the Platform Committee this week in Cleveland adopted Donald Trump’s call for a security wall on America’s southern border as part of the solution to the nation’s broken immigration system, as well as safeguarding national security.

Republican Party staffers prepare a first draft of the platform for delegates to use as a starting point for debate, a draft based on the previous convention’s platform (in this case, the 2012 platform), updated to account for current issues. These staffers had already included language in the first draft calling for “construction of a physical barrier” on what it called “our vulnerable borders.”

But some delegates noted that a “physical barrier” could mean all manner of things, from a chain-link fence, to a series three-foot high concrete blocks like Americans typically see on construction sites or around sensitive government buildings. The delegates decided to remove all ambiguity, replacing it with Donald Trump’s words, calling for the construction of a “wall.”

The platform specifies that the security wall should secure “the entirety of the Southern Border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”…

Guy Who “Identifies” As A Female Arrested For Taking Pictures Of Woman In Target Dressing Room – Daily Caller

Idaho police arrested a man – who identifies as a transgender woman – on one count of felony voyeurism Tuesday after he took pictures of a woman while she was changing clothes in a Target dressing room, the Post Register reported.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested 43-year-old Sean Patrick Smith, who reportedly identifies as Shauna Patricia Smith, the day after he was spotted reaching over the changing room wall with a cell phone taking pictures of a woman who was trying on clothes. The victim confronted Smith, who then ran out of the store.

The alleged incident took place on Monday. Authorities tracked down Smith after interviewing witnesses and reviewing security footage, local news stations reported. If convicted, Smith faces up to five years in prison.

Target announced in April that men who identify as women would be allowed to use the women’s facilities at the retail store. Soon after, a man recorded himself receiving permission from Target staff to use the women’s bathrooms after he explained that’s where he “feels comfortable.”

A petition calling for a boycott of Target received hundreds of thousands of signatures from people upset with the bathroom policy. The company’s stock dropped soon after, costing the company more than $2 billion, according to one estimate.

Target shareholders expressed their displeasure with the bathroom policy at the annual shareholders meeting last month but the company has remained committed to allowing customers to use whichever bathroom they’re most comfortable using…

Obama Never Once Met With His Defense Intelligence Chief – Daily Caller
.

.
President Barack Obama twice appointed former Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn to key national security jobs in his administration, including as deputy director of national intelligence and later as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, yet he never once met with Flynn face to face.

The general, who spent 33 years in the intelligence field, told The Daily Caller News Foundation he was never called in for a face-to-face meeting with Obama to offer his assessment of ISIS as it rampaged through the Middle East, or during the political meltdown of Libya and Egypt, or on Iran’s efforts to build a nuclear bomb, or of the “Russian reset” that ended in shambles.

In four years, Flynn was never invited to brief the president on any kind of intelligence issue. Ever.

“Here is the crux of my relationship with Obama,” Flynn told TheDCNF in a wide ranging interview Tuesday. “Here I am, running one of the largest intelligence agencies in the world. He appoints me twice – one as the assistant director of national intelligence and one as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency…

Chicago’s Collapse Has Begun – Michael Bargo, Jr.

The city of Detroit, now famous as an economic disaster, began its decline when it lost jobs. This was accompanied by a loss of population, a rapid rise in poverty, increasing dependence upon federal entitlement programs and an unstoppable downward economic spiral.

Puerto Rico is now undergoing an economic collapse sparked not by population loss but by excessive government spending. Chicago is in the same situation. Government overspending and overtaxation comes first, population loss follows.

Chicago is technically bankrupt. Its expenditures have exceeded its receipts for about ten years. All big rust belt cities in the Midwest, East, and Northeast have been losing population since 1950. Detroit’s population has dropped from 1.85 million to 800,000.

Chicago was only able to delay its loss of population by becoming the first official sanctuary city in 1985. Since then the only part of its population that has increased is the Hispanic segment. But even adding the illegal immigrants and their children, today Chicago’s population has fallen to below where it was in 1920. And the number of white people living in the city has declined to below where it was in 1890. This decline is not just due to white flight: the city’s black population is also now less than it was in 1970, according to the Census Bureau.

Today 46% of Chicago’s public school students are Hispanic. While these Hispanic students have delayed the depopulation of the overtaxed city, Chicago is still showing clear, irrefutable evidence of population and economic decline…

Police Official Threatens To Pull Officers From Browns Games Over Isaiah Crowell Post – Washington Post
.

.
Isaiah Crowell went to some lengths to say he was sorry for posting an image of a policeman getting his throat cut, but even his team, the Cleveland Browns, said that “just an apology is insufficient.” So it should come as no surprise that the head of Cleveland’s police union feels that the running back needs to do much more to make amends.

In fact, if Crowell does not travel to Dallas to apologize in person to the families of officers killed last week during a protest of recent police shootings, and to “write them a check,” the law enforcement official threatens to “pull” his men from providing security at Browns games this fall. So said Stephen Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, in comments Tuesday to TMZ Sports.

Loomis told the website that the image Crowell posted was as “offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the ’60’s.” Crowell shared the drawing via social media on Wednesday, after two black men were killed in separate shootings by policemen but a day before a sniper killed five officers in Dallas…

Cleveland Police Union Leader: ‘Obama Has Blood On His Hands That He Can’t Wash Off’ – Gateway Pundit

Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association President Steve Loomis says Barack Obama has blood on his hands “that he can’t wash off.”

Loomis, who is president of the patrol officer’s union unloaded on Barack Obama today following the police massacre in Dallas last Thursday night.

Steve Loomis: Certainly when the president of the United States gets on TV and uses very divisive language, when the governor of Minnesota gets on TV and uses very divisive language that just serves to incite a very small group of people that have an agenda.

And when you’re hearing from legitimate politicians, the President of the United States down to a local prosecutor, speaking in this very divisive way before one day of investigation is completed, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana or up in Minnesota, that’s very hurtful.

And those gentlemen are going to have a lot to answer for. That’s inciteful and they have blood on their hands. They have blood that they’re not going to be able to wash off.

Rep. Blackburn Drafts Letter To FBI, IRS And FTC Calling For Public Corruption Investigation Of Clinton Foundation – Daily Caller
.

.
A new congressional letter circulating among lawmakers charges the William, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is a “lawless, ‘Pay-to-Play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years.”

The letter, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, is authored by Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn who plans to send it to FBI Director James Comey, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen and Federal Trade Commission chairwoman Edith Ramirez.

The letter calls upon the three agencies to launch a “public corruption” investigation into the ties between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton’s policies as secretary of state.

The letter says there is a “pattern of dealing that personally enriched the Clintons at the expense of American foreign policy.”…

Facebook Accused In $1B Lawsuit Of Being Hamas Tool – Bloomberg

Lawyers filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Facebook Inc., alleging it allowed the Palestinian militant Hamas group to use the platform to plot attacks that killed four Americans and wounded one in Israel, the West Bank and Jerusalem.

“Facebook has knowingly provided material support and resources to Hamas in the form of Facebook’s online social network platform and communication services,” making it liable for the violence against the five Americans, according to the lawsuit sent to Bloomberg by the office of the Israeli lawyer on the case, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner.

“Simply put, Hamas uses Facebook as a tool for engaging in terrorism,” it said.

Hamas is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S., European Union and Israel. The suit said the group used Facebook to share operational and tactical information with members and followers, posting notices of upcoming demonstrations, road closures, Israeli military actions and instructions to operatives to carry out the attacks.

Mushir al-Masri, a senior Hamas leader, said by phone that “suing Facebook clearly shows the American policy of fighting freedom of the press and expression” and is evidence of U.S. prejudice against the group and “its just cause.”

Facebook wants “people to feel safe when using Facebook. There is no place for content encouraging violence, direct threats, terrorism or hate speech on Facebook,” the company said in a response to a request for comment on the case. “We have a set of Community Standards to help people understand what is allowed on Facebook, and we urge people to use our reporting tools if they find content that they believe violates our standards so we can investigate and take swift action.”

In March Facebook took down a page promoting a new Palestinian uprising against Israel because it made “direct calls for violence,” in violation of company polices…

Putin Sacks Every Commander In His Baltic Fleet After Top Brass Refuses To Follow His Orders And Confront Western Ships – Daily Mail
.

.
Vladimir Putin has sacked every single commander in Russia’s Baltic fleet in what has been described as a ‘Stalin-style’ purge.

Up to 50 officers of the fleet were fired alongside Vice Admiral Viktor Kravchuk and his chief of staff Rear Admiral Sergei Popov after they reportedly refused to follow orders to confront Western ships.

Reports in Russia also suggested the purges followed an alleged cover-up of a submarine accident, flaws in recruitment and military construction projects.

It comes amid an undisclosed number of other senior officers of the fleets have been fired over serious flaws in combat training and their failure to take proper care of personnel.

The purges’ scope and publicity make them highly unusual for the Russian military, which usually removes senior officers in a more subtle way…

White House Petition To Recognize BLM As Terrorist Org. Gains 100K Signatures – Daily Caller

A White House petition to formally recognize the Black Lives Matter movement as a terrorist organization garnered it’s one-hundred-thousandth signature Monday afternoon, the minimum-threshold for earning a response from the administration.

The petition had been created on Wednesday, July 6, but had only gathered 12,000 signatures in its first two days online.

“Terrorism is defined as the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims,” writes the petitions author. “This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations.”

Despite the petition’s slow, initial momentum, the Thursday night murder of five Dallas police officers helped the petition gain mainstream media coverage.

The Black Lives Network denounced the actions of Micah Johnson in a Friday statement.

Though movement leaders have called on America to “reject” violent rhetoric, several supporters have continued to call for violence against police officers…

Trump Releases 10 Step Plan To Reform The VA – Breitbart
.

.
Speaking from Virginia Beach, Virginia on Monday afternoon, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump released a ten point plan to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

“Veterans should come first in the country they fought to protect, and under a Trump administration, they will,” the billionaire declared during his speech at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center. “We are going to fight for our military and our law enforcement personnel the same way they have fought for us. We will be a safe, strong, and proud country once again.”

Trump spoke about ten steps he will take if elected president to reform the VA:

1. I will appoint a Secretary of Veterans Affairs who will make it his or her personal mission to clean up the VA. The Secretary’s sole mandate will be to serve our Veterans – not bureaucrats, not politicians, but Veterans. Amazingly, President Obama’s VA Secretary recently downplayed concerns about waiting times by saying that people also wait in line at Disneyland…

Two Thirds Of ObamaCare Co-ops Have Now Failed – Washington Free Beacon

Only a third of Obamacare co-ops are still in operation after two more co-ops announced they were closing their doors in the past week.

Connecticut’s co-op, HealthyCT, was placed under an immediate order of supervision on July 5 after being forced to pay $13.4 million for the Affordable Care Act’s risk adjustment program.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services initially awarded HealthyCT $75.8 million in June 2012, then awarded it $3.8 million in November 2013 and $48.4 million in September 2014.

“It became evident that this risk adjustment mandate would put the company under significant financial strain,” said Katharine Wade, Connecticut’s insurance manager. “This order of supervision provides for an orderly run-off of the company’s claim payment under close regulatory oversight.”

Three days later, the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services announced it would place Oregon’s Health Co-Op in receivership and liquidate the company’s assets. The co-op lost $18.4 million in 2015 due to medical claims and individual policies and owes $900,000 to pay for Obamacare’s risk adjustment program. The co-op was awarded a total of $56.7 million from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

“We understand changing plans in the middle of the year will be difficult for Oregonians, but this action was necessary given the sudden deterioration of the company’s financial position,” said Patrick Allen, director of the department. “Unfortunately, as a startup, Oregon’s Health CO-OP is not in a position to sustain these losses while meeting its obligations to policyholders.”…

Leftist USSC Justice Ginsburg: “If Trump Wins, It’s Time To Move To New Zealand” – Zero Hedge
.

.
In what we can assume was a joke, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that if Donald Trump wins the presidential election, she’ll consider moving. In an interview with The New York Times published Sunday, the Supreme Court justice, whose peers traditionally avoid political topics like the plague, said her husband, who died in 2010, would have said, “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”

“I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be – I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

As The Hill adds, Ginsburg, 83, said she will not leave her job “as long as I can do it full steam.” But she mentioned that that Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Stephen G. Breyer are no longer young, alluding to the effect the presidential election will have on the court.

As the NYT adds, her colleagues have said nothing in public about the presidential campaign or about Mr. Obama’s stalled nomination of Judge Merrick B. Garland to the Supreme Court…

Facebook Puts Up Massive Black Lives Matter Banner At HQ Following Dallas Shootings – Breitbart

Despite remaining under scrutiny for liberal bias, Facebook has used the aftermath of the Dallas shootings to pander to Black Lives Matter, hoisting a giant banner featuring the slogan on their Menlo Park Campus this weekend.

The giant sign spelled out the words “BLACK LIVES MATTER,” with the words formed from the names of black people whose deaths attracted national attention.

The name of Emmett Till, who was lynched in 1955 after he flirted with a white woman appears alongside the name of Michael Brown, who was shot in August 2014 after he robbed a convenience store, physically attacked a police officer and attempted to seize his sidearm. How the two cases can be compared was not made clear by Facebook, but Breitbart readers can of course make their minds up for themselves.

Facebook put up the sign on Friday, a day after black supremacist Micah Xavier Johnson carried out a massacre of police officers in Dallas, Texas during a Black Lives Matter protest in the city, killing five and wounding eight others. Naturally, the names of these police officers did not appear on Facebook’s sign.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is known for being strongly supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement. In February, it was reported that he reprimanded staff at the company for writing “All Lives Matter” on the HQ’s whiteboards.

Facebook has failed to swiftly take down images glorifying violence against the police, despite the fact that the site’s terms of service prohibit content that “promotes graphic violence.” This weekend, a user who reported a cartoon of a police officer having his throat slit by a masked activist was initially informed that the picture did not violate Facebook’s ToS.

Concurrently to accusations of being soft on Black Lives Matter, Facebook has also come under scrutiny for alleged bias against conservatives…
