Yes, #NeverTrumpers, You Are In Fact Morally Responsible For The Hillary Clinton Presidency You’re Agitating For (Ace Of Spades)

Yes, #NeverTrumpers, You Are In Fact Morally Responsible For The Hillary Clinton Presidency You’re Agitating For – Ace Of Spades

Sorry, I was on Twitter. I felt it was necessary to dispel the widely-held myth, adored by #NeverTrumpers, that somehow attacking Trump relentlessly does not aid Hillary Clinton, and that they are not choosing Hillary Clinton by choosing to be NeverTrump.

All choices have consequences. By supporting Trump, I am responsible for the consequences of a Trump victory – and those consequences could indeed be dire.

But a childish morally-unserious fantasy has infected the #NeverTrump not-so-intellgentsia, that they can agitate for Hillary Clinton – by relentlessly disparaging Trump – and somehow, they are not responsible for the consequences of the Hillary presidency they are bucking for.

They’ve dreamed up this self-pleasing, responsibility-evading dreamscape in which those who plump for Trump are responsible for the outcomes of a Trump presidency, but, for no explanation thusfar discoverable, they are not responsible for the outcomes of the Hillary presidency they’re agitating for.

I tried to explain to them that there is no such thing as a consequence-free choice – all choices have consequences, both on the upside and the downside – and both the upside and downswide consequences must be considered by any adult, intellectually-serious person in making his choice.

But they like this idea that, like little children, they are free to gambol and play in the fields and this does not even perturb the leading edge of a butterfly’s wing, and so they just keep teling me “No you’re wrong” without saying why I’m wrong.

Which, seriously, is a rather important part of any argument beginning with the words “You’re wrong.”

I ask people: When you knocked Obama in 2012, and wrote posts and comments noting his flaws, did you think you were doing nothing to improve Mitt Romney’s chances of winning the presidency?

If so– why the fuck did you bother?

Of course, this is silly; everyone knows that when one buys ads attacking a candidate, one is helping that candidate’s opponent win.

The #NeverTrumpers are filling their blogs, magazines, and Twitter timelines with nonstop political advertising (free) against Trump, and maintain, just because they say so and because it pleases them to think so, this does exactly nothing to help Hillary, and they are therefore not responsibe for her election.

Or let me put it this way: I am not hoping for Trump to get into some serious international snafu by supporting him. Yet I know that is a very real possibility if he’s president.

Should this happen, I can’t just say “But I didn’t want trump to screw up so badly.”

People would say – no, but you knew the risks in supporting him, and you supported him anyway; you are therefore morally responsible for this.

Yet the #NeverTrumpers claim that the obvious, inescapable outcome of their position – that Hillary Clinton will be the president – is not their responsibility, just because they didn’t intend that as a pirmary matter.

No, but they were completely aware it was the natural and inevitable consequence of their position.

So why would a Trump supporter be responsible for a foreign policy catastrophe he didn’t even know for a fact would happen, when a #NeverTrumper claims to be innocent of the Hillary Presidency they know beyond a shadow of any doubt is the direct and inescapable consequence of the NeverTrump posiition?

They’re responsible for it. They don’t want to be, but they are.

I don’t particularly want to be on the hook for a Trump presidency, but, being a morally serious person who has not yet delegated my thinking to the Twitter Hivemind, I recognize that by taking the action of lending him my support, I am responsible for the conseqyences of that act.

Why do the childish #NeverTrumpers mewl that they, alone in the universe, are not responsiblee for the consequences of their own choices?

I understand the #NeverTrump impulse. I’ve expressed it myself. After Trump’s boorish, vulgar, half-insane attack on Cruz’s wife, I announced “I’m done” with Trump and vowed to never vote for him.

I understand #NeverTrump, emotionally. I think there’s merit in the position.

However, we have difficult choices to make. And difficult choices should be treated as what they are – difficult, hard choices requiring moral seriousness and rigorous cost-benefit analysis.

They should not be made – artificially and falsely – into easy-breezy decisions where one just says “I will do everything I can to make sure Trump is defeated, and I shall never give a thought to the prospect of a Hillary presidency, and I should never allow my shoulders to feel the burden of the consequences of the choice I am making.”

Real men – and tough-minded women – do not go fleeing tough choices by simply hallucinating an “Officer Dimes, please come and save me” miracle solution.

Either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be president in November.

If you think Hillary would be a better president – or if Trump is so repulsive to you you cannot support him even if you think Hillary would be worse – fine. I respect your opinion.

We all have different brains. We all have different priorities.

But what I must insist you cannot do – what i will not permit you to do – is fantasize that while a Trump supporter is resonsible for the gaffes and disasters of a President Trump, you are somehow innocent of the purges and witchhunts of a President Hillary.

Trump supporters will own the consequences of a Trump presidency – and Hillary supporters, both those who declare it proudly and those who wish it secretly – own the consequences of a Hillary presidency.

Adults accept the consequences of their choices.

Only children run from them, or cross their fingers behind their backs and claim that’s a charm insulating them from the consequences of their choices.

Some decisions are hard. They should be respected as being hard.

And no, Officer Dimes is not coming to save you from the dilemma you face.

Christie: Cruz’s Speech ‘Awful’ And ‘Selfish’, He ‘Richly Deserves’ Reputation He Has On Capitol Hill – Breitbart
.

During an interview on CNN on Wednesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie criticized Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) speech at the RNC as “awful” and “selfish.” And “why Ted has so, so richly deserved the reputation that he’s developed on Capitol Hill.”

Christie said Cruz’s speech was “awful” and “selfish.” And that Cruz “signed a pledge, and it’s his job to keep his word. And I think you the performance you saw up there is why Ted has so, so richly deserved the reputation that he’s developed on Capitol Hill.”

He added, Every one of us signed a pledge, and our words should matter, and that’s what disgusts people out in your audience about politicians, that they give their word and then they think that’s negotiable…

Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage At Convention For Not Sticking To His Pledge To Endorse The GOP’s Nominee – Daily Caller

At the conclusion of Sen. Ted Cruz’s Wednesday speech at the Republican National Convention, the crowd in the Quicken Loans Arena booed the Texas senator loudly for not endorsing Donald Trump.

At one point during his speech, Cruz said, “And to those listening, please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

By the end of the speech, the crowd appeared to become restless and disgruntled that Cruz did not endorse Trump. When it was clear that the endorsement would never come, and as the Texas senator was signing off, the boos eclipsed Cruz’s remarks.

Earlier in the day, just as Cruz admitted that the Republican Party “now has a nominee” that was not himself, Trump’s plane did a flyover of his event, silencing the booing crowd.

Massachusetts Attorney General Bans Sales Of All New AR-15 “Assault Weapons” – Daily Insider
.

.
After the usual “assault rifles” are “weapon of war” used by “mass murderers” anti-AR agitprop, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey dropped this bombshell at The Boston Globe.

The Massachusetts assault weapons ban mirrors the federal ban Congress allowed to expire in 2004. It prohibits the sale of specific weapons like the ColtAR-15 and AK-47 and explicitly bans “copies or duplicates” of those weapons. But gun manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to define what a “copy” or “duplicate” weapon is. They market “state compliant” copycat versions of their assault weapons to Massachusetts buyers. They sell guns without a flashsuppressor or folding or telescoping stock, for example, small tweaks that do nothing to limit the lethalness of the weapon.

That will end now. On Wednesday, we are sending a directive to all gun manufacturers and dealers that makes clear that the sale of these copycat assault weapons is illegal in Massachusetts…

Anti-American, Leftist Protester Sets Himself On Fire While Trying To Burn American Flag Outside RNC – WCBS

Police arrested 17 people Wednesday after a melee broke out during a flag-burning in the streets outside the Republican National Convention.

It was the most turbulent protest since the four-day convention began on Monday. The chaos briefly prevented delegates and members of the media from getting into the Quicken Loans Arena for the night’s proceedings.

The melee brought to 22 the number of people arrested during the convention, far fewer than some law enforcement authorities had feared.

“Right now, I think so far, so good,” Police Chief Calvin Williams said Wednesday night. “We’re still out there, we’re still vigilant, to make sure we finish this day and the last day tomorrow on a positive note.”

Among those arrested was Gregory “Joey” Johnson, whose torching of the flag at a GOP convention three decades ago led to the landmark 1989 U.S. Supreme Court decision that said flag-burning is speech protected by the First Amendment.

Moments after the flag was set on fire, officers charged in to put it out with an extinguishing spray that some in the crowd thought was pepper spray because of similarities in the design of the canisters and the eye irritation caused by the fire-suppression substance.

“You’re on fire! You’re on fire, stupid!” a Cleveland officer shouted at a protester while firing the extinguishing spray…

Obama Regime Issues Another Pass To Cabinet Official For Lawbreaking – Hot Air

After Hillary Clinton walked scot-free despite having evidence of multiple violations of federal law in mishandling national-security information, why would anyone expect Barack Obama to hold other Cabinet officials to the legal standard? Julian Castro won’t get prosecuted or even punished by his boss for politicking on the job despite the conclusion from the Office of Special Counsel that the HUD Secretary violated the Hatch Act. Why? Because he’s really sorry, according to White House spokesman Josh Earnest:

“I think, to his credit, Secretary Castro acknowledged the mistake that he made,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

“He owned up to it, and he’s taken the necessary steps to prevent it from happening again,” Earnest told reporters.

“I think that’s the expectation that people have when you make a mistake, particularly in a situation like this.”…

Milo Suspended Permanently By Twitter Minutes Before ‘Gays For Trump’ Party At RNC – Breitbart

Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention.

The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening after she complained about “abuse” on the platform. Milo was suspended despite the fact that he sent no abusive tweets to the actress.

BuzzFeed gleefully reported that the suspension is permanent, citing a statement from Twitter promising a clampdown on “targeted abuse.” Milo has also received a message from Twitter confirming that that his ban is permanent, copied below.

The statement also promises to tackle “hateful” conduct, in the wake of widespread media condemnation of racist tweets sent to Leslie Jones. However, it remains to be seen whether Twitter will take any action against Jones’ own racially hateful tweets, seen below and archived here.

— Lord have mercy… white people shit

– Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) February 9, 2015 —

In a comment, Milo said “With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives.”

“Twitter is holding me responsible for the actions of fans and trolls using the special pretzel logic of the left. Where are the Twitter police when Justin Bieber’s fans cut themselves on his behalf?”…

Retired Warship Takes 12 Hours To Sink After U.S. Navy Bombards It During Weapons Testing Exercise – Daily Mail

It was a retired war ship hit with over 5,000 pounds of high explosives.

However the USS Thach, which was bombarded from the air, sea, and even underwater last Thursday during a missile-testing exercise, did not go down without a fight, taking 12 hours to finally sink to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.

The Rim of the Pacific Exercise, also known as SINKEX or the sinking exercise, takes place every two years, and involves stripping an old frigate of its weapons, ammunitions and fuel.

It is then used for Navy target practice, with ships, submarines and aircraft from the US, Canada, Australia, and the Republic of Korea all taking aim.

But the latest, the USS Thach, which was retired in 2013, turned out to be quite hardy.

The ship was towed to an area 55 miles north off the coast of Kaui and then bombarded.

According to Popular Mechanics, the ship was first hit with a harpoon missile from a South Korean submarine.

Next, the Australian frigate HMAS Ballarat launched another Harpoon, and an Australian SH-60S helicopter shot it with a Hellfire missile.

The US maritime patrol aircraft then hit it with Harpoon and Maverick missiles.

However that was merely the beginning.

The cruiser USS Princeton then hit it with yet another Harpoon missile, while an American SH-60S Navy chopper hit it with more Hellfires…

Mother And Three Daughters Stabbed By Muslim Man In France Because They Were ‘Scantily Dressed’ – Daily Mail

A mother and her three daughters were reportedly stabbed while on holiday in France because they were ‘scantily dressed’.

A knifeman attacked the woman and her three daughters, aged eight, 12, and 14, in the village of Garde-Colombe near Laragne-Monteglin, in south-east France, at around 10.30 this morning.

The attacker, named locally as Moroccan-born Mohamed Boufarkouch, was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in police custody.

Local reports suggest the Boufarkouch attacked the victims because they were ‘scantily dressed’. The victims are believed to have been wearing shorts and t-shirts at the time.

It is also understood that the victims were known to the attacker and his family as they were staying next door to each other in the holiday camp.

The victims, who have not been named, were attacked while eating breakfast at the holiday camp.

Local mayor Edmond Francou, told Le Parisien that the attacker was on holiday with his own family, including two children, from their home in Yvelines, near Paris.

At a press conference today, the Prosecutor said so far there was no motive…

Afghan Refugee Shot Dead After Slashing Attack On German Train – Fox News

Multiple people were injured after a teenage Afghan refugee went on a slashing spree armed with an axe and knife on a train in southern Germany on Monday night before he was shot to death by police, officials said.

Wuerzburg police said on their Facebook page that three of the victims suffered serious injuries and one was slightly injured. Another 14 people were being treated for shock.

Bavaria’s top security official, state Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann, told Germany’s ARD television that the attacker had been identified as a 17-year-old Afghan refugee.

Herrmann said initial information was that the suspect came to Germany as an unaccompanied minor and had lived in the Wuerzburg area for some time, initially at a refugee facility in the town of Ochsenfurt and more recently with a foster family.

He said authorities were still investigating the motive of the attack and were looking into reports that the suspect had yelled out “an exclamation” during the rampage.

He was responding to reports that some witnesses had heard the suspect shout “Allahu Akbar” (“God Is Great”) during the attack.

The train was on its way from the Bavarian town of Treuchtlingen to Wuerzburg, which is about 60 miles northwest of Nuremberg…

Daytona Beach Cop Car Firebombed; ‘Black Lives Matter’ Note Left Behind – American Mirror

An empty police car parked outside a Florida mosque – intended to deter vandalism during Ramadan – itself was the target of vandals who torched it with a Molotov cocktail over the weekend.

Daytona Police Chief Mike Chitwood says a “ghost” car was stationed outside the Islamic Center at 347 S. Keech St. when someone set it on fire at around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, News 6 reports.

“We were in bed and I heard a ‘boom’ noise. It sounded like a window being broken and I thought it could be someone trying to break into my boyfriend’s car. So I looked out the window and didn’t see anyone near his car then I looked left and saw the police car was on fire,” a neighbor who did not want to be identified tells the News-Journal.

“The police car has been parked there since the Orlando shootings. They move it every now and then but it’s always empty. My boyfriend called 911 and it took so long before they got there that by the time they did the entire car was covered in fire. It took a bit to get the fire out.”

According to Chitwood, when police arrived, a note was left behind reading, “Black Lives Matter A. Sterling P. Castile F*ck the police,” referring to the two black men killed by police in Baton Rouge and St. Paul.

Chitwood says the department has not yet confirmed that arson was indeed the work of a Black Lives Matter protester.

“I really do believe in my heart of hearts that we have a really great rapport with our community overall. They know that if there’s a problem, they can come and talk to us,” Chitwood tells the paper…

France “Is On Verge Of Civil War” Security Chief Warns Feckless Hollande – Zero Hedge

Now, in the wake of the Nice terror attacks that left 84 people dead with over 300 others wounded, Calvar is doubling down warning an increasingly questioned Hollande that an inevitable confrontation between the far right and Muslims looms, posing more of a threat than terrorism.

As SputnikNews reports, French President Francois Hollande faces stern criticism for his feckless response to the growing wave of Islamic migrants and the horrors of terrorism that have followed in their wake leading not only to a resurgence of the far-right nationalism within the country, but also leading members of his own cabinet to question whether he is overseeing the descent of France into a bloody civil war…

Baton Rouge Shooter Gavin Eugene Long Was Nation Of Islam Member, Railed Against ‘Crackers’ On YouTube – Daily Caller

A Youtube account operated by Gavin Eugene Long and discovered by The Daily Caller reveals key insight into what might have motivated the 29-year-old black man who killed three Baton Rouge police officers Sunday morning.

Videos on Long’s account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member. He also ranted against “crackers” and made references to Alton Sterling, the black man killed by police in Baton Rouge on July 5.

Other information about Long shows that the Kansas City native, who CBS reported was honorably discharged from the Marines in 2010, went by the name Cosmo Ausar Setepenra.

In one video filmed from Houston and posted to Long’s Youtube account on July 12, the suspected guman discusses being in the Marines and reaching the rank of E-5.

Long, who was reportedly carrying a rifle and wearing all-black attire when he confronted police, posted several videos within recent weeks discussing various police-involved shootings.

“If I would have been there with Alton – clap,” Long says in a video posted on July 14.

In the video, Long met with several men he seemed to not have known prior to their encounter. He promotes a book he wrote and discusses black liberation ideology…

Thousands Of Venezuelans Enter Colombia For Food, Medicine – Fox News

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans poured into neighboring Colombia to buy food and medicine on Saturday after authorities briefly opened the border that has been closed for almost a year.

A similar measure last week led to dramatic scenes of the elderly and mothers storming Colombian supermarkets and highlighted how daily life has deteriorated for millions in Venezuela, where the economy has been in a freefall since the 2014 crash in oil prices.

Colombia’s foreign ministry said in a statement that at least 35,000 Venezuelans entered Colombia on Saturday, and their entry took place “in an orderly manner and under conditions of security.” The border was opened for roughly eight hours and will be opened again on Sunday, it said. Roughly 35,000 people also crossed during last week’s 12-hour border opening.

Saturday’s opening took businesses in the Colombian border city of Cucuta by surprise since it had been announced that the border would opened on Sunday.

Colombian Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas said “we have made a great effort to have sufficient supplies” for the Venezuelans expected to stream across the border on Saturday and Sunday.

Gov. Jose Vielma of the Venezuelan border state of Tachira said that President Nicolas Maduro supported the opening, ordering that people “not be disturbed” when they crossed into Colombia…

65 Arrested In Baltimore #Afromation ‘Black Lives Matter’ Demonstration – Inquisitr

An #Afromation demonstration in Baltimore that blocked northbound traffic on the Interstate 83 was soon broken up when police moved in and arrested demonstrators. The Baltimore Sun reported a total of 55 adults arrested, along with 10 minors.

Original reports stated only 20 arrests, but this climbed quickly to 65 in total. Demonstrators were either moved into nearby Penn Police Station or onto vans.

According to The Baltimore Sun, processing of the arrested #Afromation demonstrators was still continuing at midnight, hours after the arrests. This is confirmed by a tweet uploaded by one of those arrested.

Pickle kept people informed of what was happening, saying that many had not yet been taken to Central Booking because of insufficient resources to process them all. As of 1:30 a.m., 6 hours after her arrest, she, and likely many other #Afromation demonstrators, had still not been made aware of the charges.

ABC News reports that demonstrators were charged with failure to obey police and cited for traffic charges for walking on the highway. #Afromation demonstrators were reportedly chanting “hands up, don’t shoot.”

One of the #Afromation demonstration organizers, David Blaim, was interviewed by The Baltimore Sun. He said that when police came and told them to move off the road onto the shoulders, most people complied. Police had said an ambulance was coming.

Hacked Email Shows Democrat Party To Spend $800,000 To Disrupt RNC And Harass Delegates – Real Strategy

Internet hacker “Guccifer 2.0” released the Democrat Party’s plan to disrupt the RNC in Cleveland and harass delegates at the convention.

Democrats plan to spend at least $800,000 on operations to torment Republicans at their convention.

Hundreds of paid liberal activists will also converge on Cleveland to disrupt and cause mayhem.

The Smoking Gun reported:

The Democratic Party’s plan to crash this month’s Republican National Convention is heavy on gimmicks and stunts meant to highlight a possible “Trumpocalypse,” as well as to ridicule the presumptive GOP candidate’s purported spray tan, tiny fingers, and dog whistle proclivities.

The Democratic National Committee’s “Counter Convention Plan Sketch” covers 22 pages and outlines the party’s activities in Cleveland, where the Republican convention begins July 18. Democratic operatives will launch their operation a week earlier, on July 11, to coincide with the opening of the RNC’s summer meeting.

A copy of the plan was obtained by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0,” who breached party servers and made off with DNC financial records, e-mails, research reports, and other documents. In e-mails to TSG, “Guccifer 2.0” has claimed to be a Romanian “hacktivist,” though security researchers who have examined the DNC breach have said that the infiltration appears to be the work of a Russian espionage unit.

The DNC plan notes that the party’s efforts in Cleveland will cost in excess of $800,000. In addition to 16 staffers on the ground, the party will have numerous surrogates available for media interviews and an RV to “serve as a mobile billboard” and green room. The plan was honed when the GOP field narrowed to Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich. Subsequent updates focused primarily on “gimmicks” to ridicule Trump…

Following a new primary election poll showing that House Speaker Paul Ryan has plummeted to well below 50 percent in his home district, Ryan is out with new mailers assuring Wisconsin voters of his desire to secure the border, and urging them to support him in his contentious August 9th primary election.

The new mailers touting Ryan’s support for border security is interesting given that just last year, Ryan championed a spending bill that fully funded President Obama’s open borders agenda – including funding sanctuary cities, executive amnesty, and the release of criminal aliens. The mailers also come amid new reports indicating that, one month after his election, Ryan plans to bring up “criminal sentencing” measures that could release thousands of criminal illegal aliens from prison onto the streets.

“Keeping America safe is a big job. And it’s the most important one there is,” the Ryan mailer reads. “Protect our Homeland – that means securing the border, confronting Islamic Terrorism, and tackling new threats by stopping them from reaching our shores… Paul Ryan for U.S. Congress… Vote Tuesday, August 9th”…

Virtually Every Remaining Obamacare Co-Op Is On The Verge Of Total Collapse – Towanhall
.

.
Well, in March, it was reported that the last remaining Obamacare co-ops are on the verge of failing. Two more co-ops in Connecticut and Oregon recently decided to close shop. Right now, roughly one-third of the co-ops are left out of 23 that were set up. Virtually every one that remains could fold this year. Ali Meyer of The Washington Free Beacon reported once again from the ruins of this health care venture:

Six of the seven Obamacare co-ops that are still in operation are currently on corrective action plans, according to an official from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The Illinois Department of Insurance announced this week that it was requesting an order of rehabilitation for the state’s Land of Lincoln Health co-op because of its unsustainable financial position. The co-op was originally awarded $160.2 million by CMS…

Fraud Alert: DC Schools Have More Students Than School-Aged Kids Living In The District – Daily Caller

District of Columbia public and charter elementary schools have more students attending classes than the federal city’s entire population of such school-aged kids, indicating a fraud rate of at least 11 percent.

Mathematically, that is the minimum portion of elementary schoolers who must be non-D.C. residents, but whose parents are freeloading off taxpayers to take advantage of the District of Columbia Public Schools’ extended hours, after-school care and proximity to employers.

The District’s public and taxpayer-funded charter schools had 36,785 students in kindergarten through 5th grade in 2014 – slightly more than the city’s population aged five to 10, which was estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau at 36,770.

The gap of 15 students could be explained by the Census estimate’s margin of error or through special cases – except for the fact not every child in D.C. attends its public schools is considered. Children from wealthy D.C. families often go to private schools, for example.

The Census Bureau estimated that 4,139 children aged five to nine were in private schools in 2014 – meaning that in those six grades alone, the public school system had 4,154 more students enrolled than the total population of those that age.

The discrepancy is understated by those figures because they don’t include the District’s home-schooled students, or 10-year-olds in private school, since the Census Bureau’s private school estimate doesn’t break out that age group…

‘Black Lives Matter’ Organizer “Triggered” By White People, Demands Money For Being A “Fat, Black Bitch” – Zero Hedge

According to ‘Black Lives Matter’ organizer Ashleigh Shackelford, white people aren’t welcome at Black Lives Matter rallies and instead should just hand over “reparations” to black people so that they can purchase new cellphones and laptops.

In an article for ‘Wear Your Voice’, an “intersectional feminist media” outlet, Shackelford says that she finds the presence of white people at Black Lives Matter rallies “triggering,” and that black people are “frightened” by whites, adding that their roles should be confined to acting as human “buffers against the police”.

“Why are you going to a protest when you’re the oppressor?” asks Shackelford, adding, “WHITE PEOPLE ARE KILLING US. So when I see white people show up to rally excited and smiling, ready to march like it’s a hobby – I’m disgusted and absolutely fucking livid… I’m ready to fight.”…

Turkish Soldiers Surrender On Bosphorus Bridge After Overnight Military Coup Fails – Daily Mail

More than 2,800 rebels have been detained after their failed military coup that killed at least 250 and wounded more than 1,500 as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed revenge for the bloody uprising.

Erdogan made his triumphant return back to Istanbul after his forces quelled the coup on Friday evening, as he warned that the members of the military behind the plot to oust him would pay a ‘heavy price for their treason’.

Some 104 plotters were killed after a coup attempt to bring down the Turkish government, while 160 people – at least 41 of them police and 47 civilians – fell as ‘martyrs’.

Soldiers who have taken over the Chief of General Staff Headquarters in capital city Ankara, the last base held by coup supporters, have requested negotiations to surrender.

President Erdogan meanwhile used Twitter to call on supporters to prevent any additional military action, adding: ‘We should keep on owning the streets no matter at what stage because a new flare-up could take place at any moment.’

The rebel army faction – who call themselves the ‘Peace Council’ – said they were trying to overthrow the government to ‘protect human rights’ and restore democracy from Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party, AKP, which has repeatedly faced criticism from human rights groups and Western allies over its brutal crackdowns on anti-government protesters…

Obama Regime Has Released Tens Of Thousands Of Criminal Illegal Aliens Because Their Home Countries Won’t Take Them Back – Daily Caller

The Obama administration has released “tens of thousands” of illegal aliens convicted of crimes in the U.S. because their home countries refused to take them back.

And a “substantial number” of those involve serious crimes, a government official said Thursday during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on so-called recalcitrant countries.

Nations like China, Liberia and Guinea often refuse to take back their own citizens after being convicted of crimes in the U.S.

Congress Releases Long-Classified ’28 Pages’ On Alleged Saudi Ties To 9/11 – Washington Post

A long-classified document detailing suspected connections between Saudi Arabia and the hijackers who carried out the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks was released Friday by the House Intelligence Committee after being redacted by U.S. intelligence agencies.

The document, referred to as the “28 pages” throughout a years-long battle over whether it should be made public, had taken on a near-mythic status. Victims’ families and some lawmakers had pushed for its release, charging that the government had tried to cover up possible Saudi links to the attacks, in which 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens.

But the pages, part of a 2002 joint inquiry by the Senate and House Intelligence Committees into the al-Qaeda plot, do not appear to add significantly to information collected in subsequent investigations, including the 9/11 Commission report, published in 2004, and numerous other documents that have since been made public.

All of the Saudis named in the pages released Friday, including several who had been in direct contact with two of the hijackers during their time in the United States before the attacks, were investigated by the FBI and the CIA, with results detailed in later reports.

The 9/11 Commission report, the most exhaustive study of the attacks, said it found no evidence that the “Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded” al-Qaeda.”

Eleanor J. Hill, who served as staff director of the joint congressional inquiry, stressed that the panel itself never reached any conclusions about the material in the newly released pages and that the public should understand that they contain threads that were seen at the time as investigative leads for others to pursue…

France ‘Suppressed Reports Of Gruesome Torture’ At Bataclan Massacre – Haaretz

A French government committee has heard testimony, suppressed by the French government at the time and not published online until this week, that the killers in the Bataclan appear to have tortured their victims on the second floor of the club.

The chief police witness in Parliament testified that on the night of the attacks, an investigating officer, tears streaming down his face, rushed out of the Bataclan and vomited in front of him just after seeing the disfigured bodies.

The 14-hour testimony about the November attacks took place March 21st.

According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda. For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.

But prosecutors at the hearing claimed these reports of torture were “a rumor” on the grounds that sharp knives were not found at the scene. They also claimed that maybe shrapnel had caused the injuries…

Trump Rally Attendees Sue San Jose Mayor, Police Chief And Attackers Over Violence At June Rally – Gateway Pundits

Fourteen victims of anti-Trump rioters at a Trump campaign rally in San Jose, California on June 2 filed a class action federal civil rights lawsuit on Thursday against San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Police Chief Edgardo Garcia, the City of San Jose and several named and unknown attackers.

Two of the victims filing suit were featured in national reporting over the attacks on them: A teenage boy who was rabbit-punched and then chased and tackled by the mob, and a woman who was chased, cornered and pelted with eggs and bottles by the mob.

The lawsuit describes police ordering Trump supporters to walk directly into the maws of the anti-Trump mob and then failing to intercede when the Trump supporters were set upon and attacked by the mob. The suit alleges this was done at the direction of the mayor and police chief.

The suit was filed by Harmeet K. Dhillon, an attorney who is also vice chair of the California Republican Party.

The suit was announced in a press release.

Fourteen individuals who attended the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign rally on June 2, 2016, in San Jose, Calif., filed a class action lawsuit this morning against the City of San Jose, its mayor, Sam Liccardo, its chief of police, Edgardo Garcia, certain named individual rioter defendants, and 38 yet-unknown “Doe” defendants, alleging that the Defendants created a dangerous situation for all Trump Rally attendees that caused plaintiffs to be exposed to brutal assault, intimidation, false imprisonment, and threats by an angry mob of hundreds of anti-Trump protesters…

House Democrats’ Plan To Secure Nation Is Less Than Two Pages Long – Washington Free Beacon

House Democratic leaders unveiled a national security agenda that is less than two pages in length and prioritizes combatting online radicalization and restricting gun sales.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D., Md.), and other leading Democrats unveiled the agenda for a “stronger America” at a Thursday news conference on Capitol Hill.

The three-pronged agenda focuses on securing the nation, its future, and its democracy. The white papers outlining each target area are roughly one-and-a-half pages long.

House Democrats’ brief plan to address national security comes at a time when threats facing the nation and its allies are complex, as demonstrated by Wednesday’s deadly truck attack in Nice, France. The United States is currently waging a campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, deploying troops to Eastern Europe to help NATO deter Russian aggression, attempting to mitigate tensions surrounding China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, and thwarting domestic terror threats, among other actions to protect U.S. interests…

Immigrant Bans Cops From Eating At His Restaurant, Immediately Regrets It – Mad World News

An irate immigrant who owns a Washington state restaurant didn’t want cops for customers after the recent turmoil in our country fueled by Black Lives Matters. A group of officers was eating there when he kicked them out and told them to spread the word that law enforcement wasn’t welcome there. However, the owner regretted it after what happened as soon as his message got out.

Deputies in Skagit County stopped by Lucky Teriyaki in the town of Sedro-Woolley on Thursday for lunch. After they sat down, that they were asked to leave and never come back, because “customers didn’t like law enforcement there,” KREM News reported. Shocked, they stood up and simply left, reporting what happened to Sheriff Will Reichardt, who couldn’t believe it, so he called the owner to confirm that all cops were banned from his business.

“The owner not only repeated the request but asked that we spread the word to other law enforcement that they were no longer welcome either,” Reichardt wrote on social media. The Sheriff did just as he asked and respectfully put Lucky Teriyaki on blast for their disrespectful decision, just giving the community the heads up that officers wouldn’t be anywhere near the restaurant because “a business owner has a right to refuse service if he wants to,” he said.

The Sheriff’s post instantly went viral after disgusted citizens couldn’t believe the audacity of this owner and shared it more than 23,000 times, flooding the post with over 10,000 comments that were mostly in support of our brave men and women in blue. The following day, after this message didn’t go over in the eatery’s favor, the restaurant scrambled to save face and made excuses for banning cops.

The customers, who the owner said were uncomfortable around cops, proved that wasn’t the case when the community became outraged over the decision, which immediately had a negative impact on Lucky Teriyaki. The owner blamed it on “miscommunication” because of the language barrier since he had never fully learned English before moving to America and setting up shop.

Lucky Teriyaki has since reversed its ban on cops and is hoping to make up for this “miscommunication” by making July 18 a day for deputies to eat for free…

Idiot Who’s Reading While Riding His Bike Somersaults Through The Air After Slamming Into Stationary Car – Daily Mail

A cyclist somersaulted through the air after ploughing into the back of a stationary car – because he was allegedly reading while riding his bike.

Driver Anthony Ginn, 38, captured the moment the cyclist crashed into the black Vauxhall Vectra on his daschcam while driving in Warwick, Warwickshire.

His footage shows the male cyclist appear to ride with his head down reading a large piece of paper – possibly a map – which is resting on the handlebars.

And despite flying through the air and writing off his bike, the cyclist got up and brazenly tried to blame the driver of the Vauxhall.

He then picked up the paper and remonstrates for around two minutes before leaving – without leaving his details with the driver of the damaged vehicle.

Mr Ginn, a father of two, said the cyclist was listening to music through headphones and riding on the road despite there being a cycle path just yards to the left.

He said: ‘The cyclist was really aggressive and arrogant. He was trying to blame the car when I could clearly see that he wasn’t paying attention to the road.

‘I was following the cyclist up the hill and didn’t really take too much notice of him until he went into the back of the car.

‘Never Trump’ Movement Dies In Committee – Real Clear Politics

A long-shot, last-ditch attempt by a few Republican delegates to prevent Donald Trump from securing the GOP nomination failed by an overwhelming margin late Thursday night.

Some anti-Trump delegates on the Republican National Convention Rules Committee sought a strategy to unbind convention delegates, allowing them to vote their conscience against Trump even if they were bound to him by primary results. Delegates loyal to Trump and the Republican National Committee fought back by proposing a counter-measure to clarify that all delegates are bound to vote based on the primary results.

The votes came near the end of a marathon 14-hour session of the rules committee to set any changes ahead of next week’s convention to officially nominate Trump as the Republican presidential candidate. The first vote, on the pro-Trump measure to keep delegates bound, passed easily, 87 to 12.

Immediately following that vote, Kendal Unruh, a Colorado delegate who has led the efforts to unbind the delegates, offered her highly anticipated amendment. She gave a speech beforehand calling the ability to vote one’s conscience a “God-given right.”

“The right to conscience is not just something that we’ve decided is a cool idea. It’s something that is the very basis of our nation,” Unruh said. “It is why the pilgrims came here and founded our nation. It is a God-given right to why we have the Bill of Rights.”

Immediately after that, however, Michigan delegate Matt Hall moved to end debate on the measure, and more than two-thirds of the committee, 77 to 21, voted to cut off all debate while some anti-Trump delegates, including Utah Sen. Mike Lee, were still waiting to speak on the matter…

Black Thug Who Randomly Attacked 75-Year-Old Man And Beat Him Unconscious Is Arrested – WCBS

A man and woman have been arrested and charged in connection with the brutal attack on a 75-year-old man in the West Village, police said Thursday evening.

Alleged assailant Deangelo Coleman, 20, of the Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago, was charged with two counts of assault in the attack on 14th Street on Wednesday afternoon.

Brianna Crusade, 19, who is homeless, was charged with grand larceny, police said. Authorities said a woman kept watch as a lookout while a man attacked the victim.

Police sources told CBS2 the two suspects were caught shoplifting at the Kmart at Penn Station. Security guards took them into custody, and when NYPD officers arrived, they recognized them as the suspects in the assault, sources said.

The victim of the random attack spoke to CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez earlier Thursday.

Ahmad Ahmad, 75, was back on his feet a day after the attack – out of the hospital and recovering at home. But his head and face were left severely bruised in the attack, which was caught on video.

“I didn’t see him because I’m walking. He hit me from my back,” Ahmad said. “I didn’t know who. I didn’t see him.”

The attack happened around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday as the victim was walking on West 14th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues outside of the Salvation Army’s executive offices…

Cleveland Police Given ‘Stand Down’ Order At RNC; Protesters To Wreak Havoc On Republicans And City – Gateway Pundit

Although the radical left has days of protests planned and has a history of protests, the Cleveland police has issued a stand down order to officers, I can exclusively report.

Remember when thugs from the left attacked Trump supporters at his San Jose rally? The San Jose mayor and police chief claimed it would have been “too dangerous” for officers to do their jobs by defending Trump supporters.

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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…

Conservative Activist Jailed After Pulling Gun On Menacing Black Lives Matter Thugs – Gateway Pundit

This weekend Michael Strickland, a former contributor at The Gateway Pundit and Progressives Today, was jailed in Portland, Oregon after he pulled a gun on a gang of thugs who were going to kick his a$$ at a black lives matter protest.

Last year Michael was jumped by an anti-gun activist who broke his arm in three places at an anti-Second Amendment event.

This weekend Michael was confronted by a gang of men and he pulled out his gun. The story made headlines and Michael was thrown in jail. Michael has a concealed carry permit in Oregon and can legally carry a weapon. He was being threatened and he pulled the gun on his would-be assailants.

Apparently, the state of Oregon issues concealed carry permits in Portland but you’re not allowed to use your gun if you are being threatened with an a$$beating.

** Victoria Taft has an amazing report on the incident including several video clips.

The court set bond for Michael at $250,000.

Please help free Michael Strickland.

You can help out by donating to his release at Oregon Firearms Educational Foundation, indicating “Michael Strickland Legal Fund” in the tribute box.

San Diego Police said Wednesday, that a fourth victim has been critically injured, and set on fire by what appears to be a serial killer. Police say, the killer struck the 23 year old homeless man with an unidentified object while he was sleeping, and then set him on fire. This is the fourth known attack in the last four days, that have left at least two dead. Police said, the 23-year-old victim was not expected to survive his injuries, which will bring the death toll to three. The fourth victim, remains in critical condition, but is expected to survive.

San Diego police Chief, Shelley Zimmerman told reporters, “I want everyone to know that this series of attacks against our homeless, is the highest priority for our police department. These evil acts of violence are some of the worst that I have seen in my 34 years in law enforcement,” Adding, “This killer has targeted some of our city’s most vulnerable citizens while they are asleep.”

Police believe that the same man is behind all the attacks that killed two, and critically injured two others. Police Captain David Nisleit said, “It’s really hard to say what our suspect’s motive is. All I can say is these are senseless attacks.”…

Syrian Refugee Sexually Assaults 13-Year-Old Girl At Public Pool – Gateway Pundit

Syrian refugee Emad Hasso was arrested near Boston after sexually assaulting a 13 year-old girl at a swimming pool.

Hasso had been in the United States for two months.

WND reported, via Religion of Peace::

If you think Muslim sex attacks at public swimming pools are only happening in Europe, think again.

In Lowell, Massachusetts, a 22-year-old Syrian refugee, Emad Hasso, has been arrested after being accused of inappropriately touching a 13-year-old girl at a public swimming pool. Hasso has been in the United States only two months.

On Friday, Hasso was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail by the Lowell District Court after pleading not guilty to one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under 16. Hasso spoke through an interpreter.

Sign the petition! Urge Congress to ‘halt Muslim immigration now!’

Prosecutor Sam Miller reported on Thursday the 13-year-old girl said a man approached her, touched her upper thigh and asked her age. The girl told him she was too young for him and walked away. Hasso then allegedly followed the girl around the pool. While swimming, he again approached her, touched her upper thigh and asked her age. Miller said the girl responded that she was a “little kid, leave me alone.” At that point other people at the pool, including the lifeguard, saw some of the interaction between Hasso and the alleged victim and intervened.

Defense attorney William Kittredge reports Hasso speaks little English, and he receives assistance from the International Institute of New England, a nonprofit group which offers resources and information to immigrants and refugees…

Bill Proposed To Strip Hillary Of Security Clearance, Restore Expectation Of Integrity – UFP
.

.
In an effort to maintain a bare minimum level of national security integrity, Texas Sen. John Cornyn is promoting legislation to strip an extremely careless and unaccountable Hillary Clinton of her security clearance.

Earlier this week FBI director James Comey laid out the details of Clinton’s extreme carelessness, announcing that Clinton would not be held criminally liable for her malfeasance. After which, Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a statement confirming that the Department of Justice will follow suit and refuse to hold Hillary accountable despite her extreme negligence and recklessness. However, not all government attorneys and lawmakers find such incompetence and low expectations acceptable.

Prior to a meeting between Senate Republicans and Presidential candidate Donald Trump, Sen. John Cornyn and Sen. Cory Gardner announced their proposal of a bill that would revoke security clearances from Hillary Clinton and multiple aides who jointly and knowingly disregarded secure information protocol at the highest level. While Hillary’s own compromised security clearance is concerning to any American with integrity, many of her former aides while Secretary of State now have key roles in her campaign…

Lawsuit: Class Action Vs. Obama, Farrakhan, Holder, Sharpton, Black Lives Matter – Conservative Base

On Friday, Larry Klayman, a former prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice, founder of Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch, and a former U.S. Senate Candidate in Florida, filed as lead plaintiff a class action lawsuit to redress the incitement, violence and killings of law enforcement and others, as occurred last Thursday in Dallas, Texas.

The class action complaint filed today in the the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas (Klayman et. al v. Obama et. al, Civil Action Number 3:16-cv-2010), can be viewed at www.freedomwatchusa.org. Klayman had this to say upon the filing of this class action complaint:

“It’s time that law enforcement, such as the plaintiffs in this case, including myself, come forward by peacefully attempting to use the legal system to redress the incitement, threats and killings provoked by the defendants in this class action case. I am hopeful that I will be joined by other law enforcement to join in the suit,” said the Washington, DC watchdog.

“For too long, law enforcement and others, including white and non-white Jews and Christians, have remained silent, scared to speak and act, for fear of being branded racists over the fear of being threatened and harmed by the defendants and their accomplices.

This must stop and justice must be done to preserve the integrity of our great nation and to avoid an all out race war that will destroy the freedom that our Founding Fathers dedicated their sacred honor, their fortunes and risked their lives for,” he noted.

Ivy League Professor: ‘The Fraternal Order Of Police Is A Terrorist Organization’ – Daily Caller

A Cornell University professor charged that the Fraternal Order of Police is “a terrorist organization” at a Black Lives Matter protest in Ithaca, New York on Friday.

The protest was in response to the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, reports The Ithaca Voice.

Castile was shot by a police officer on Wednesday in Falcon Heights, Minnesota – 1,074 miles from Ithaca. Sterling was shot by a police officer on Tuesday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana – 1,395 miles from Ithaca.

The professor is Russell Rickford.

“The Fraternal Order of Police is a terrorist organization,” Rickford said during the protest, according to the Voice. He was countering an unidentified protester who suggested a letter-writing campaign to various law enforcement agencies about Black Lives Matter.

Rickford, a history professor who “specializes in the black radical tradition,” declared that the situation in America today calls for a much more radical response.

“We charge genocide,” Rickford said, and he presented the definition of genocide as proffered by the United Nations.

El Paso Police Chief: Black Lives Matter Movement A ‘Radical Hate Group’ – Big Country

El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen says the shooting in Dallas is due to the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement. NewsChannel 9’s Marissa Armas asked the police chief what his thoughts were on the protestors and the movement, here was his response:

“Black lives matter as far as I’m concerned… it’s a radical hate group. I think the leaders of this country need to look a little harder at that particular group. The consequences of what we saw in Dallas is due to their efforts,” says Allen.

Although the police chief sees the Black Lives Matter movement as a hate group, the El Paso county sheriff didn’t agree.

“That’s not my belief…I certainly understand that there are incidents that are occurring around the country that are bringing attention to things that are important to communities all across this nation and I think we need to sit down and listen and communicate about problems,” says County Sheriff Richard Wiles.

People on social media seemed to have mixed feelings about the chief’s comments, one reading:

“He speaks the truth.” Another commented: “It is a hate group, how hard is it to believe that it is.”

While others say it wasn’t his place. Jorge Curiel commented, “I think its very unfortunate that a person with this high of authority, can think like this and not do his homework on what these groups really stand for.”

FBI Director James Comey has a long history of involvement in Department of Justice actions that arguably ended up favorable to the Clintons.

In 2004, Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, apparently limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, which left out former Clinton administration officials who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives. The documents were relevant to accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the build-up to the 9/11 terrorist attack.

On Tuesday, Comey announced that despite evidence of “extreme negligence by Hillary Clinton and her top aides regarding the handling of classified information through a private email server, the FBI would not refer criminal charges to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Justice Department.

Authorities: 911 Caller Ambushed, Shot Officer In Georgia – ABC News

A man who called 911 to report a car break-in Friday ambushed a south Georgia police officer dispatched to the scene, sparking a shootout in which both the officer and suspect were wounded, authorities said. Both are expected to survive.

The shooting in Valdosta, just north of the Georgia-Florida state line, happened hours after five police officers were killed Thursday night in an ambush in Dallas. Despite saying the officer was lured to the scene by the gunman, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said there was no immediate evidence that the shootings were related.

Tensions between law enforcement and the African-American community flared this week following two instances where white officers fatally shot black men. Videos of those shootings or their aftermath went viral. In the shooting in Valdosta, police said the suspected gunman is Asian.

“We’re putting pieces together to understand what happened and why, developing witnesses,” said Scott Dutton, spokesman for the GBI, which is handling the case at the request of local police. “There’s nothing to indicate there’s a connection to that.”

Officer Randall Hancock was shot multiple times as he responded to a 911 call about a car break-in outside the Three Oaks Apartments just after 8 a.m. Friday, Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress said at a news conference.

Cops: Tennessee Shooter Targeted White Victims, Similar To Dallas Ambush – CBS News

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has released the name of the suspect behind Thursday morning’s random shooting in Bristol, TN that claimed the life of an area newspaper carrier and injured three others, including a local police officer.

The TBI says 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott was armed with at least two weapons, an automatic-style rifle, a pistol and a large amount of ammunition, reports CBS statation WJHL in Tennessee.

According to the TBI, the victims were:

* Jennifer Rooney ( A Bristol Herald Courier newspaper carrier) : Deceased after being shot driving in her vehicle on Volunteer Parkway.

* David Whitman Davis: Received minor injuries at the scene after being injured by flying glass resulting from the gunfire.
* Officer Matthew Cousins: Sustained a superficial wound to the leg. Was subsequently treated and released from BRMC.

Preliminary findings indicate Scott may have targeted people and officers after being troubled by recent events involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country.

Marine To Use Clinton’s Non-Indictment As Defense In Classified Information Case – Russia Today

Maj. Jason Brezler has been locked in a battle with the Marine Corps since he used an unclassified Yahoo email account to send a classified message warning fellow service members of a potentially corrupt Afghan police chief in July 2012.

Why Hillary Clinton Must Go To JailTop 30 Things ‘More Trusted Than Hillary’ – Daniel Greenfield

In 1994, Hillary Clinton took questions under a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Wearing a pink pantsuit, she offered what would become her customary mix of lies and defensiveness, admitting to something and then trying to shift the blame, denying that she had broken the law and then claiming ignorance.

It was an act that we would see over and over again for the next few decades, but back then it was still new when Hillary Clinton claimed that she couldn’t remember anything, that the whole Whitewater affair was an invasion of her privacy and that she had never meant to do anything wrong.

Some twenty years later, we have spent the past few months witnessing the same performance.

She blamed sexism for Whitewater. “It’s a little difficult for us as a country, maybe, to make the transition of having a woman like many of the women in this room, sitting in this house.” Her supporters claim that her email scandal is caused by sexism rather than her blatant violation of the law.

“I do feel like I’ve always been a fairly private person leading a public life,” Hillary Clinton whined about the examination of her shady investments. This time around she claimed that her whole rogue email server filled with classified documents was an attempt at protecting her classified yoga routines.

The truth, then and now, is that Hillary Clinton is a public figure who claims that her private life is being invaded whenever she gets caught violating the law.

Then there are the vague statements that almost sound like apologies, but aren’t. “I’m not in any way excusing any confusion that we have created,” she said of Whitewater…

House Republicans Push For New Hillary Clinton Investigation – Wall Street Journal

House Republicans said Thursday they would seek a new Federal Bureau of Investigation examination into Hillary Clinton, this one focused on whether she lied to Congress about her handling of classified information, raising the likelihood the controversy over her private email system will continue through the fall elections.

The announcement came as FBI Director James Comey appeared before Congress to forcefully defend his recommendation to the Justice Department earlier this week against charging Mrs. Clinton. Mr. Comey said that only once in the past century had charges been levied against someone for handling classified information negligently but without malign intent.

Conduct like Mrs. Clinton’s could lead to administrative penalties if the individual were still in the government, Mr. Comey told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, but he doesn’t believe the former secretary of state should be prosecuted.

“We don’t want to put people in jail unless we can prove they knew they were doing something they shouldn’t do,” Mr. Comey said.

The FBI director suggested Mrs. Clinton reasonably assessed that some of the disputed emails were unclassified because they weren’t properly marked. He added that she may not have been “sophisticated” about the treatment of classified information. Those are potential obstacles for a push to prosecute her for lying to Congress about whether particular emails were classified.

The nearly five-hour back-and-forth between Republicans, Democrats and Mr. Comey marked an extraordinary moment, as top lawmakers grilled an FBI director over a prosecutorial decision regarding a presumptive presidential nominee…

One suspect died after a tense standoff with cops in an El Centro College garage, law enforcement sources said. It was unclear if the suspect was killed or had shot himself.

State Department Reopens Hillary Clinton Email Probe – The Hill

The State Department is restarting its internal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server now that the Department of Justice has decided not to pursue charges against her.

“Given the Department of Justice has now made its announcement, the State Department intends to conduct its internal review,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.

The State Department had suspended its investigation into its former secretary to avoid interfering with the FBI and Justice Department reviews.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced this week the DOJ would not press charges against Clinton, following FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation.

Kirby said he can’t provide specific information about what the department is evaluating, and he could not give a timeline for the process.

“Our goal will be to be as transparent as possible about our results, while complying with our various legal obligations,” he said.

State’s probe will likely include top Clinton advisers including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan.

Kirby said earlier this week that former officials could still face “administrative sanctions” for past actions, according to the Associated Press…

FBI’s Comey To Testify Before Congress On Clinton Email Probe – New York Post

FBI Director James Comey will testify before Congress on Thursday to explain how he concluded that an “extremely careless” Hillary Clinton should not be prosecuted for sending top secret messages over a private email server while serving as secretary of state.

Comey will get grilled by angry Republican members of the House Oversight Committee.

The House Judiciary Committee, meanwhile, announced that Attorney General Loretta Lynch will be appearing before its members on Tuesday, after a week of questions about her private meeting with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac in Phoenix.

“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing. The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable,” Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said in a statement.

The Utah Republican added: “Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI’s investigation. I thank Directory Comey for accepting the invitation to publicly answer these important questions.”

The FBI is supposed to be insulated from partisanship, with directors appointed to serve 10-year terms under legislation passed in 1976 following J. Edgar Hoover’s extraordinary 48-year tenure.

Comey is a Republican first nominated to a senior Justice Department post by President George W. Bush, and tapped to lead the FBI in 2013 by President Barack Obama.

But Comey’s declaration that “no charges are appropriate” against Clinton is drawing a deluge of GOP criticism, even though Comey prefaced it by calling Clinton “extremely careless” in her handling of highly sensitive information…

Trump Beats Expectations, Raises $51 Million With GOP In June – Washington Post
.

.
Donald Trump raised more than $26 million through online and mail solicitations in June and another $25 million at events with the Republican National Committee, his campaign announced Wednesday, a hefty haul that his allies hope will put to rest anxieties in the party about his fundraising prowess.

The combined $51 million falls short of the $68.5 million that Democratic contender Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party collected in June, which included $40.5 million she raised directly for her campaign. But it was the biggest monthly take by far for the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, who did not begin to hold fundraising events until late May. And it suggests Trump has the ability to quickly inject large sums of money into his campaign coffers by tapping into the fervor of his supporters.

Much of the campaign’s money appears to have come in during the final 10 days of the month, when Trump’s operation began aggressively soliciting money online for the first time. The Trump campaign announced Wednesday that more than 400,000 supporters made donations in June, with more than $3 million coming in just one day…

Obama Calls Clinton ‘Diligent’ Hours After FBI Director Calls Her ‘Extremely Careless’ – Weekly Standard

President Obama says Hillary Clinton “could not have been more diligent” as secretary of state in a video her campaign released mere hours after FBI director James Comey accused her of being “extremely careless” in her handling of classified materials during her tenure.

“She could not have been more diligent, more tireless, more loyal, and more committed to making sure that around the world, diplomatically, we were promoting the interests and goals of the American people,” says Obama in the two-minute promotional spot the Clinton camp characterized as an “interview”.

Earlier Tuesday, Comey announced the findings of the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time at the State Department. While stopping short of recommending an indictment, the Bureau criticized her behavior and “the security culture of the State Department in general.”

“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” Comey said at a press conference.

“While not the focus of our investigation, we also developed evidence that the security culture of the State Department in general, and with respect to use of unclassified e-mail systems in particular, was generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information found elsewhere in the government.”

The FBI’s conclusions include:

From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received…

Professor: Pledge And National Anthem Are Racist, “Nationalistic Indoctrination” – Red Alert Politics

Dr. Gerald Horne of the University of Houston isn’t a fan of American symbols, as evidenced by his interview with Sharmini Peries for The Real News Network. Despite this distaste, he holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African-American Studies.

Horne blasts the flag and Pledge of Allegiance, which came about because “it was thought that this artificially-constructed former slaveholders’ republic needed some kind of glue to help to bring disparate elements together.”

There’s also a tie-in to how harshly African Americans have been treated, with added emphasis:

And once again, the issue of national unity was at play, not least because a substantial percentage of the citizenry, particularly those of African descent, were subjected to routine atrocities, and it was felt that they would not necessarily be enthusiastic about shedding their blood and making the ultimate sacrifice for this so-called Republic. And so therefore you had the installation of the Pledge of Allegiance, particularly in schools, because it was thought that you had to get U.S. nationals at an early age in order to inculcate in them some sort of identification with the United States of America.

“The Star-Spangled Banner” is also problematic.

According to Horne, it speaks to “reprimanding, reproving, and denouncing black people for not standing alongside the star-spangled banner, but instead aligning, as the black population tended to do, with the real and imagined enemies of the United States of America.”

Peries did more than just agree. As she began her interview, “July 4 Independence Day celebrations are underway. It’s a weekend heavily adorned by national symbols of the U.S. flag everywhere, and all kinds of other nationalistic paraphernalia. It is a good time to analyze these [altruistic] national symbols, how they evolved, should we be pledging allegiance to them.”….

2015: DOJ Prosecutes A Naval Reservist For Mishandling Classified Info Without Malicious Intent – Daily Caller

During a Tuesday press conference, FBI Director James Comey recommended that Hillary Clinton not be charged for mishandling classified information while serving as secretary of state.

Comey argued that based on “the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent… and how similar situations have been handled in the past,” “no reasonable prosecutor” would even consider bringing a case like Clinton’s to court.

Only, that isn’t exactly accurate.

Less than one year ago, Assistant US attorneys Jean M. Hobler and Lee S. Bickley successfully prosecuted Naval Reservist Brian Nishimura in a strikingly similar case.

Back in 2012, Nishimura admitted to handling “classified materials inappropriately” while deployed to Afghanistan from 2007-2008.

Nishimura served as a Regional Engineer and, according to the FBI’s investigation into the incident, “had access to classified briefings and digital records that could only be retained and viewed on authorized government computers.”

“Nishimura, however, caused the materials to be downloaded and stored on his personal, unclassified electronic devices and storage media,” wrote the FBI. “He carried such classified materials on his unauthorized media when he traveled off-base in Afghanistan and, ultimately, carried those materials back to the United States at the end of his deployment.”…

James Comey And The Road To Tyranny – Bruce Thornton
.

.
FBI Director James Comey has decided not to recommend that Hillary Clinton be indicted for violating security laws concerning the handling of classified information, among other offenses. By doing so he has compromised a fundamental principle of consensual government: that the laws apply equally to everybody, including those entrusted with the people’s power. Now it is up to voters come November to reaffirm that we are a nation of laws, not men.

Comey chose to do what I suggested on May 20 as a possible scenario: “There are any number of ways the Bureau could spin such a recommendation [not to indict] in a way to let Hillary off the hook: no proof of intent, evidence of carelessness but not criminality, or throwing some staffers and aides under the bus.” Comey in his announcement chose two out of three. He scolded Hillary for being “extremely careless,” but said there was no evidence of intent.

Both statements raise suspicions. First, the statute in question proscribes “gross negligence.” How is “extreme carelessness” different from “gross negligence”? Is there a firm legal distinction between these two? Black’s Law Dictionary defines “negligence” in law as “The omission to do something which a reasonable man, guided by those considerations which ordinarily regulate the conduct of human affairs, would do, or doing something which a prudent and reasonable man would not do.”…

Austria Warns It Will Leave EU If Turkey Wins Controversial Brussels Bid – Sunday Express

Austria will turn its back on the crumbling European Union if Turkey is successful in its controversial bid for membership, the country’s anti-immigration party leader has vowed.

Far-right party leader Norbert Hofer said Turkey joining the bloc could be the game changer that forces Austrians to call for an EU referendum in a bid to break away.

He said: “I believe that people are able to learn, that political structures are able to develop, and that Austria will contribute to making Europe better.

“There is one exception, however, that is if the EU decides to let Turkey join the Union. Austrians will have to be asked whether they want this.”

His remarks come amid fresh discussions between Turkey and EU bigwigs after Ankara demanded an acceleration on its application in return for taking back migrants seeking asylum in Europe.

The European powerhouse and Turkey have been locked in a high-stakes standoff over Ankara’s refusal to reform its strict terror laws in return for visa-free travel and £2.5billion to clamp down on the migrant crisis.

But keen to jump on the Brexit result in talks earlier this week, EU minister Omer Celik argued that the bloc needs his country more than ever after Britain voted to pull out in last week’s historic referendum…

That makes June the 14th month in a row to see a new background check record, including every month of 2016. This year is on pace to break 2015’s record for most checks in a year.

Man Loses Foot After Stepping On Explosive In Central Park – New York Post

A tourist had his left foot blown off in Central Park after stepping on something that exploded, possibly a firework, police sources said.

Connor Golden, 18, was climbing on some rocks near east 60th Street and Fifth Avenue with his two buddies – Thomas Hinds, 20, and Joseph Stabile, 18 – when he stepped on the object at around 11 a.m., the sources said.

ISIS Bombing Kills 125 Ramadan Shoppers In Baghdad – BBC

At least 125 people have been killed and about 150 injured in an explosion claimed by the so-called Islamic State group in Baghdad, Iraqi police say.

A car bomb exploded on a busy street in the Karrada district late on Saturday.

A second bomb also exploded at about midnight in a predominantly Shia area north of the capital, killing another five people.

The bombing in Karrada is the deadliest in Iraq this year and comes a week after Iraqi security forces recaptured the city of Falluja from Islamic State (IS) militants.

Police said the dead included at least 15 children and six policemen. At least 12 other people were missing, feared dead.

National Debt Jumps Nearly $100 Billion In One Day To Record High – Washington Examiner

The U.S. national debt is creeping up again, after holding steady for the last few months thanks to the annual flood of individual and corporate tax receipts.

Total government debt hit a record $19.38 trillion on Thursday, up nearly $98 billion from the day before. It’s the first time it has ever exceeded $19.3 trillion.

The debt will soar higher still in the coming months, and is expected to approach $20 trillion by the time President Obama leaves office.

The total debt had been essentially flat since March, when it hit $19.2 trillion. Growth in the national debt often slows or plateaus in the spring and early summer, as tax receipts in April help balance out federal spending that’s on a current pace to exceed receipts by $500 billion.

The federal government collected a record high $1.48 trillion in tax revenues in the first half of the year, which helped offset growth in the deficit over the last few months.

Total public debt on Thursday was $13.93 trillion, and government loans to itself are $5.45 trillion.

Aside from tax receipts or lower spending, another way to reduce the national debt is through gifts to the Treasury Department…

‘Fact Checker’ Lies About Trump’s Latest Claim, But Here Are The Facts – Mad World News

Donald Trump’s statements are always being fact checked, but now, one famous fact checker is in the hot seat. Politifact said Trump lied on an issue that is extremely important – crime in America. US Citizens want to know the facts about criminal activity in our country, and you’ll be shocked at the lies being told, all in an effort to make Trump look bad and the Democrats in charge look good.

Politifact is a fact-checking organization that has won the Pulitzer prize, but now they are learning the hard way that it is best not to lie because someone could fact check you. After Donald Trump made the statement that “crime is rising,” they took on the task of seeing if his statement was true.

They said his comment was not true and gave him the worst rating of “pants on fire” over his statement. Now, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) has come out with the truth, calling out Politifact as the liars with pants on fire. From the AEI website:

But there is a big problem with their conclusion: Politifact just stopped looking at data in 2014. They cite the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) database, which to date has only published final figures through 2014. Preliminary figures for 2015 are public but curiously the fact-checker doesn’t cite them – although the data were available in January 2016, well before the post was published.

The FBI’s preliminary 2015 figures actually do show crime rising in most categories across the country between 2014 and 2015. Violent crime (i.e. murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault) is up. For example, the murder rate rose 6.2% in 2015, while rape rose 9.6%.

So, we can speculate why Politifact chose to ignore the most recent data. Obviously, they are backed by liberals who hate Trump and want to ensure he is not elected as our next president, but there’s another shocking tidbit…

Another Mass Shooting At Club, But Look Why Media’s Refusing To Report It – Conservative Tribune

The mass shooting terrorist attack in Orlando has been discussed endlessly by the liberal media for weeks now, but you probably didn’t hear about another mass shooting that occurred this past weekend in South Carolina.

Why didn’t you hear about it? Well, because it was promptly stopped by a concealed carrier who used his gun to take out the bad guy before he could kill anybody.

According to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning in Lyman, South Carolina. Jody Ray Thompson, a 32-year-old Lyman resident, allegedly got into a verbal confrontation with another man outside the Playoffz nightclub at about 3:30.

Thompson quickly decided to escalate the verbal altercation, firing at random into the crowd and hitting three people. One of the men who was shot at, however, had a concealed carry license. He fired back at Thompson, wounding him in the leg and stopping his rampage.

Thompson has been charged with four counts of attempted murder; the man who returned his fire will not be charged, according to police, as he was acting in self-defense.

Taiwan Accidentally Fires Killer Anti-Ship Missile Toward China – Forbes

The timing for Taiwan could not have been worse. On Friday, the island country accidentally fired a missile into the Taiwan Strait from a naval base in Kaohsiung, in southern Taiwan.

Reports said that a Taiwan warship mistakenly launched a supersonic “killer anti-ship” missile toward China. The missile hit a fishing boat, killing the boat’s captain. In response, China, who was celebrating the Chinese Communist Party’s 95th birthday, called it “a serious matter.”

“The Taiwanese side must explain to us what was going on in a responsible matter,” said the mainland’s Taiwan affairs chief, Zhang Zhijun. The Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post said that the incident further strained “already tense ties with the mainland.”

Taiwan quickly apologized for the mistake. “The Ministry of National Defense sincerely apologizes for the incident that caused the death of the captain (of the boat) and injured other crew members,” Maj. Gen. Chen Chung-Chi said in a news conference.

The missile, however, did not pass the mid-course line of the Taiwan Strait, which meant that it was not aimed at Fujian, China, located less than 200 miles from Taiwan. However, complicating matters, the missile, the Hsiung Fen III, has a range of 300 kilometers, and was developed to counter threats from mainland China.

Just a few days earlier, Taiwan said on Monday that it planned to test fire its newest anti-ship missile for the first time in early July at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Reports said that the test will be conducted in the U.S. to avoid China collecting sensitive information about the weapon…

Bret Baier: FBI Agents Are ‘Livid’ About Private Clinton/Lynch Meeting – Mediaite

Fox News’ Bret Baier reported Friday, citing a “well-placed source in the FBI,” that FBI agents are “livid” about the private meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former president Bill Clinton.

“Not just because of the optics and the bad appearance,” Baier explained, “but also because Bill Clinton is a potential target, a potential witness intricately involved in the second part of the investigation, and that is the corruption investigation into the possible mishandling, misdealings with the Clinton Foundation.”

The FBI agents, he said, were not placated by Lynch’s explanation that they only talked about grandchildren and personal matters. “You don’t have to be talking about the substance of the investigations to have influence on somebody who is going to make a decision about the end result. It’s like working the refs, and lawyers know this.”

Baier also pointed out this wasn’t the first time FBI agents went to the press to complain about the handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s emails. “Remember back in October, the president said there was not going to be any national security implications in this email investigation in an interview, and the FBI was very upset about that at the time as well,” he said.

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Warns Against July 4th ‘Americanism’ – Daily Caller
.

.
Former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration and current University of California Berkeley professor Robert Reich wants Americans to be vigilant this July 4 against “exclusive patriotism” that “asserts a unique and superior ‘Americanism.’”

“We hear a lot about patriotism, especially around the Fourth of July. But in 2016, we’re hearing about two very different types of patriotism. One is an inclusive patriotism that binds us together. The other is an exclusive patriotism that keeps others out,” Reich writes.

Reich claims that “we’re now hearing a strident, exclusive patriotism. It asserts a unique and superior ‘Americanism that’s determined to exclude others beyond our borders.”…

Obama Admin Hiding Info From Congress On $1.7B ‘Ransom Payment’ To Iran – Washington Free Beacon

The Obama administration is withholding from congressional leaders documents and information related to a $1.7 billion U.S. taxpayer funded payout to Iran earlier this year, furthering accusations the cash was part of a “ransom payment” to free U.S. hostages from Iranian custody, according to communications obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and conversations with lawmakers.

The controversy over this payment – which arose from the settlement of a longstanding legal dispute with Iran – has deepened in recent weeks after Iranian officials disclosed that nearly all of the U.S. money had been spent to strengthen Iran’s military.

Congressional efforts to compel the Obama administration to come clean about the payment have yet to yield results, prompting a separate effort to determine whether the White House overpaid Iran and is now withholding information that would prove this claim, according to documents obtained by the Free Beacon.

Lawmakers suspect that key records relating to the $1.7 billion payout were not properly maintained over the years and are now seeking to force the Obama administration to hand over the evidence.

The timing of the March legal settlement has raised questions on Capitol Hill among lawmakers who view it as part of the Obama administration’s effort to free 10 U.S. sailors who had been abducted by Iran. It also is suspected that the payout was another byproduct of last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

“Earlier this year, the administration announced a $1.7 billion settlement to a case that had been pending for 35 years before the [International Claims] Tribunal, claiming it was in the American public’s best interest to settle,” Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), one of the lawmakers spearheading the disclosure effort, told the Free Beacon…

Europe Crumbles: Support For Angela Merkel Plummets As EU’s Growing Divisions Laid Bare – Daily Express

The German Chancellor’s approval ratings have plummeted in the countries hit hardest by Brussels’ chaotic economic policies and the spiralling migrant crisis.

She is now viewed with “no confidence” by huge swathes of the European population at a time when the EU is facing potential oblivion in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

The results show a growing backlash against Germany from the rest of a bloc that feels Mrs Merkel has trashed their economies and unleashed huge levels of migration for her own country’s gain.

And the survey was carried out before Britain voted to leave the EU, with it likely that her approval ratings have sunk even lower still since the historic June 23 referendum.

Many southern European nations have suffered terrible hardship and depression following the imposition of the euro, which has fuelled an economic boom in Germany by driving down the cost of its exports.

Meanwhile many Balkan and eastern European countries blame Mrs Merkel for unleashing chaotic mass migration on their borders following her infamous welcome for the whole of the Middle East to settle in Germany.

The new poll, by the respected US Pew Research Center, shows that the German leader’s approval ratings are unsurprisingly lowest in Greece, which has been forced into abject austerity and poverty by Berlin…

Boris Johnson Says He Isn’t Seeking To Replace British Prime Minister David Cameron – Wall Street Journal

Late Wednesday, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, who teamed up to win the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, had their arms around each other, celebrating their victory at a Conservative Party fundraiser at the Hurlingham Club, a members-only hangout in West London.

Mr. Johnson, London’s former mayor, was hours away from formally entering the race to become the country’s next prime minister, with Mr. Gove, the current justice secretary, as his co-chair.

But the next morning – in a tumultuous turnabout – it was Mr. Gove who threw his hat in the ring, blindsiding Mr. Johnson.

Mr. Gove, who had long insisted he didn’t want, and wasn’t equipped for, the job, said he felt he had no choice. He said he had lost confidence in Mr. Johnson’s ability to form a team to lead the U.K. through its separation from the EU…

IRS Scandal: No End To Lois Lerner’s Lawlessness – Investor’s Business Daily

Justice: IRS official Lois Lerner didn’t merely target conservative groups to take away their tax-free status, as first suspected, but also handed over more than a million pages of tax returns to the Justice Department. That’s a crime.

It’s now apparent, if it wasn’t before, that the Internal Revenue Service – which was created solely to collect revenues due the government, not to persecute the administration’s political enemies – has become a kind of rogue agency.

Its chief, John Koskinen, is being threatened with impeachment for not telling the truth in testimony before Congress. But Lerner, more than even Koskinen, has become a symbol of IRS arrogance and illegality.

As Eliana Johnson of the National Review reported this week, Lerner transmitted some 1.25 million pages of tax returns of mostly Tea Party and conservative groups to the Justice Department in October 2010. In Johnson’s words, this was “likely the largest unauthorized disclosure of tax-return information in history.”

For some perspective, this took place at the start of a three-year period during which the same groups found their applications for tax-free status inexplicably held up, while those for liberal groups were more or less routinely rubber-stamped.

But the actual transmission of their tax returns as part of a fishing expedition by Lerner is the big problem here – because she also transmitted IRS Schedule B data, which includes the names and addresses of contributors to those conservative groups. That’s a big no-no…

ISIS Terrorists Used Obama’s ‘Fast And Furious’ Gun During Paris Attack – Gateway Pundit

On the evening of 13 November 2015, ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 130 people in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris.

The Islamists murdered 89 concertgoers at the Bataclan during a concert by the Eagles of Death Metal.

ISIS later released a poster of the Paris killers.

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks was from Phoenix where Obama allowed criminals and cartel members to buy thousands of guns in his Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

Judicial Watch reported:

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”.

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a gun’s ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers. The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations – for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic – but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual…

Judge Upholds Voter Citizenship Checks – Washington Times

Kansas, Alabama and Georgia can demand their residents submit proof of citizenship before signing up to vote even if they’re using the federal government’s registration forms, a judge said Wednesday, delivering a win to states concerned about voter fraud.

The League of Women Voters and the Obama administration had tried to halt the practice, arguing that federal law doesn’t require an extensive citizenship check when people register to vote, and saying the three states were imposing an extra burden on voters.

But Judge Richard J. Leon said that while it may be an inconvenience to require proof of citizenship, and voter registration drives may have to do more work to get folks signed up, it’s not an insurmountable burden – and certainly less so than trying to explain Obamacare.

“The organizational plaintiffs and their members will undoubtedly have to expend some additional time and effort to help individuals,” Judge Leon wrote. “But let’s be candid: doing so pales in comparison to explaining to the average citizen how the [Affordable Care Act] or tax code works!”

Since the voter groups didn’t show a real and irreparable harm, he rejected their request for a preliminary injunction.

The ruling is the latest in a years-long struggle by some states to combat potential voter fraud by insisting voters prove they are citizens. In one Kansas count alone, officials count 25 instances of non-citizens attempting to register to vote.

“This is a very real problem and the only way to solve the problem is to require proof of citizenship on the front end,” said Kris W. Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state…

Judge Expands Investigation into Hillary Clinton’s Dealings With Foundation Donors – National Review

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the State Department to produce the e-mail records of Hillary Clinton’s scheduler during her tenure as secretary of state, expanding an investigation being pursued by conservative nonprofit Citizens United into the overlap between Clinton’s official travel and her meetings with foreign Clinton Foundation donors.

Citizens United is slated to receive all e-mails sent to and from Lona Valmoro, Clinton’s State Department scheduler, in the two-week periods before each of 14 international trips Clinton took during her four years in office. David Bossie, president of Citizens United, hopes to confirm suspicions that Clinton maintained an off-the-books schedule, meeting with Clinton Foundation donors on the taxpayer’s dime. “Citizens United wants to know how many overseas dinners Secretary Clinton attended with Clinton Foundation donors that didn’t make it on her schedule,” he says.

Judge Rosemary Collyer, the federal judge presiding over a public-records case brought by Citizens United, was initially hesitant to allow the release of Valmoro’s e-mails, and asked the group to provide one example of an off-the-books meeting with Clinton Foundation donors…

YouTuber Calum McSwiggan Faked Gay Hate Crime Injuries In Police Cell After Being Arrested For Vandalism – Daily Mirror

YouTuber Calum McSwiggan claimed to have been “beaten up” after he left a gay club in West Hollywood, but according to reports, officials have since rubbished his story.

Posting to his Instagram account, the 26-year-old vlogger – who runs a LGBT and lifestyle channel – shared a picture of his injuries as he recovered in a hospital bed after an alleged attack at a nightclub on Sunday night.

“After one of the most wonderful weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my friends and beaten up by three guys,” explained the caption.

But in a statement to The Advocate , Captain Holly Perez, from the West Hollywood Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, explained that officers had been “unable to substantiate the assault” and that the pictured injuries were self-inflicted inside his police cell.

Pro-Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Taunts E.U. Parliament: ‘You’re Not Laughing Now’ – Washington Post

Tensions between the European Union and Britain, as well as within the country itself, spilled over to Brussels on Tuesday, as Nigel Farage, the leader of the right-wing populist U.K. Independence Party (UKIP), told assembled members of the European Parliament that the E.U. was “in denial” about its failure and the fact that it was falling apart.

“When I came here 17 years ago and said I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union, you all laughed at me,” Farage said in a speech that was carried live by TV channels in Britain and across Europe.

“Well, you’re not laughing now, are you?” Farage said. He continued to predict that the U.K. would not be the last nation to leave the European Union.

The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, had to calm jeering parliamentarians after Farage told them: “Most of you have never done a proper job in your lives.”

Schulz accused MPs of “acting like UKIP,” but also criticized Farage for his lack of respect.

Farage’s provocations did not go unanswered.

“I am surprised that you are here,” Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, told Farage in parliament. “You were fighting for the exit. The British people have voted in favor of the exit. Why are you here?” European MPs reacted with applause and cheers to Juncker’s speech…

Corrupt Clinton Aide Rigged The Benghazi Accountability Review Board – 100PercentFedUp

The big question in all this corruption is why these people aren’t in jail! The collusion between Cheryl Mills and Hillary Clinton had to be there. Is there anyone out there who REALLY believes that Clinton isn’t culpable in all this? This entire thing is sickening!

Remember the Accountability Review Board, appointed in the wake of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans in September 2012? The ARB, headed by former ambassador Thomas Pickering, provided the first attempt at oversight over the State Department’s actions in Benghazi and Libya following the sacking of the American consulate. Pickering’s probe didn’t bother to interview State officials of higher rank, such as Hillary Clinton, and tried to lay the responsibility on low-level staffers instead.

According to the new majority report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi, that may not have been a coincidence. The report accuses longtime Hillary aide Cheryl Mills of undue influence over the ARB, from the composition of the committee to access to information and witnesses, Politico reports:

Cheryl Mills, the longtime attorney, friend and former chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, influenced the findings of an internal State Department review of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, according to a draft of the final House Benghazi Committee report.

A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents reviewed by the board and helped edit the final report.

“The decisions to deviate from longstanding processes raise questions about the board’s independence, thoroughness and therefore the fullness of their findings of accountability,” the report reads…

More Than 2,000 Illegal Aliens Were Released From Prison Onto American Streets Last Year – Gateway Pundit

Liberals love to claim Obama has been tough on immigration and has deported tons of illegals but the facts tell a different story.

A new report from FOX News indicates that thousands of illegals who should have been deported after getting out of prison were allowed to stay for some reason:

Obama administration pressed to deport illegal immigrant ex-cons

More than 2,000 illegal immigrants were turned loose on American streets after serving prison sentences last year – often because their home countries refused to take them back – and many subsequently committed crimes including rape and murder, a key lawmaker charged Monday.

The claim, by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, comes a week after a federal audit blamed the Department of Homeland Security and an uncooperative Haiti for an illegal immigrant being freed to kill a Connecticut woman.

Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the Obama administration to put renewed pressure on countries that won’t take back their own criminals after they have been ticketed for deportation.

“Dangerous criminals, including murderers, are being released every day because their home countries will not cooperate in taking them back,” Grassley wrote in a June 27 letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson…

Benghazi Report: Wardrobe Concern Stunted Rescue, Cover-Up Started While Victims Still Alive – The Lid

The official report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, offered proof of what America already knew about the attack, but more importantly added shocking details about the lack of leadership during that attack which led to the death of two of the four victims, and that the Administration was already working on a cover-up during the attack, when Ambassador Stevens was missing and not yet reported dead, and at least two of the four victims were still on the roof of the compound (Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods) fighting for their lives.

The official 800 page committee report issued Tuesday came just a few hours after a politically motivated report released by the Democrats which referred to Donald Trump more times than two of the Benghazi victims.

While the report does find fault with Clinton and the State Department, it does not focus on her just as committee Chairman Trey Gowdy promised. The report is a chronology of the events of the lead-up to the attack, the attack itself and the aftermath. Additionally, the committee interviewed more than 80 people, and reviewed thousands of pages of new documents not available to any prior investigation.

Along with finding fault in some the State Department and Hillary Clinton’s actions the report criticizes the CIA saying it “missed the looming threat despite warnings and wrote faulty intelligence reports after the attack. The findings will also indicate that the Defense Department did not meet its response times to deploy military assets to Benghazi and follow up to ensure Americans were rescued in a timely fashion.”

It is not surprising that the report says the story the Administration told America, that terrorist attack in Benghazi was incited by a lousy Mohammed video on YouTube, was a fabrication invented by the Obama Administration political team and had nothing to do with the ongoing live reports the state department was getting from Benghazi during the attack…

Open Borders Zealot Zuckerberg Angers Neighbors By Building Massive Wall Around His Home – Doug Ross Journal

For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear.

Multiple attempts by TGI to contact Shawn Smith, former Falk Partners manager, who Hall says sold some of the $200 million, 700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, were unsuccessful Friday.

Shosana Chantara, a Kilauea resident, voiced her concerns about the breeze that’s being obstructed.

“It’s hot behind that wall. Because it’s up on a berm, there’s not a breath of air on this side from the ocean,” Chantara said. “You take a solid wall that’s 10 or more feet above the road level; the breeze can’t go through.”

Another Kilauea resident, Donna Mcmillen, calls the wall a “monstrosity.”

European Superstate To Be Unveiled: EU Nations ‘To Be Morphed Into One’ Post-Brexit – Daily Express

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.

Controversially member states would also lose what few controls they have left over their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees.

CIA Weapons Shipped To Jordan For Syrian Rebels Stolen, Sold On Black Market – Reuters

Weapons shipped into Jordan for Syrian rebels by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, the New York Times reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Some of the stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, according to a joint investigation by the New York Times and Al Jazeera. (nyti.ms/292MmdH)

A Jordanian officer shot dead two U.S. government security contractors, a South African trainer and two Jordanians at a U.S.-funded police training facility near Amman before being killed in a shootout, Jordanian authorities had said in November.

The training facility was set up on the outskirts of the capital, Amman, after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq to help rebuild the shattered country’s postwar security forces and to train Palestinian Authority police officers.

The weapons used in the shooting had originally arrived in Jordan for the Syrian rebel training program, the paper reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Theft of the weapons, which ended months ago after complaints by the American and Saudi governments, has led to a flood of new weapons available on the arms black market, the New York Times said.

Jordanian officers who were part of the plan “reaped a windfall” from sale of weapons, using the money to buy iPhones, SUVs and other luxury items, according to the paper, which cited Jordanian officials.

Illegal Alien Activists Shut Down Atlanta Highway To Stop Deportations – 100PercentFedIp

Once again, the illegal activists have decided to flex muscles and shut down entire highways and streets. do they really think Obama will deport them? Not happening!

Immigrant-rights activists attempted to block the road to federal immigration agents’ headquarters in Atlanta on Monday, demanding President Obama stop deporting any more illegal immigrants after last week’s Supreme Court stalemate.

Led by the Not1More campaign, which webcast the protest, the demonstrators called Mr. Obama to hamstring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the deportation agency, saying it’s up to the administration to protect illegal immigrants now.

“We are defending the security and stability of our families, sending a direct message to the Obama Administration,” said Carlos Medina, a member of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. “We know that he has the ability to stop deportations at any given time. Our fight will not stop.”

The Supreme Court issued a tie ruling last week that left in place a lower court’s injunction blocking Mr. Obama’s broad amnesty program, which would have granted tentative legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.
