Louisiana Police Officer who Shot and Killed a 6-year-old Autistic Child Found Guilty
Post Date: 2017-03-28 10:27:03 by Deckard
A Louisiana police officer who shot and killed a 6-year-old autistic boy is facing justice after having been found guilty of manslaughter and attempted manslaughter of the boy’s father who survived the high-speed car chase turned into a deadly shooting spree. Christopher Few- the father of the slain boy Jeremy Mardis, says that he was fleeing police to get his son to safety in the event he would be arrested, and the disgraced  Marksville deputy Derrick Stafford says he would have never opened fire had he known there was a child in the car. The problem lies in the fact that Stafford should have never pumped the vehicle with 14 bullets with 4 of the bullets entering ...

83-year-old Grandpa Forgot to Use His Blinker, So Cops Put Him in the Hospital
Post Date: 2017-03-28 10:05:38 by Deckard
“The next thing I know, I was down on the ground.” Antrim County, MI  — Failing to use a blinker for a u-turn has ended with a stay in the hospital for an 83-year-old business owner in Antrim County. Bar owner, Larry Sevenski found out the hard way that police in America can and will escalate violence when it is entirely unnecessary — even against the elderly. Last week, Sevenski got a call from customers informing him that state troopers were parked outside of his pub, Larry’s Seven-Ski Inn. So, this business owner of 50 years decided to go talk to the police. He had no idea that this decision would end up with charges and a stay in the hospital. ...

The headlines are awash with the recent tensions with North Korea, and most are focused intently upon this act of the play that has been running hot for several years, now.  Akin to the proverbial frog in cold water, however, we are not paying as much attention to the surveillance state that is continuing to wrap its tentacles around us.  Eurasia is our ally, Eastasia is our enemy…and nobody notices that the chocolate ration has been diminished.  While everyone focuses on what is reported in the headline news, everybody misses what is happening right before their eyes. Point of Sale is the new jail, the ubiquitous surveillance system that records your every purchase and ...

Oklahoma home invasion shooting: Suspected getaway driver arrested
Post Date: 2017-03-28 09:07:07 by Justified
Oklahoma home invasion shooting: Suspected getaway driver arrested The woman accused of acting as the getaway driver for three would-be burglars shot and killed by a homeowner's son in Oklahoma was arrested, law enforcement officials announced late Monday. More details also emerged about the moments leading up to the gunshots. Two of the three who broke in through a glass door in the back of the house were armed: one with a knife and one with brass knuckles, according to investigators in Broken Arrow. The suspected getaway driver, 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez, turned herself in hours after the shooting, Fox 25 reported. She was booked in the Wagoner County jail on three ...

Did the Government Spy on Trump? Of Course. It Spies on All of Us!
Post Date: 2017-03-28 07:02:23 by Deckard
There was high drama last week when Rep. Devin Nunes announced at the White House that he had seen evidence that the communications of the Donald Trump campaign people, and perhaps even Trump himself, had been “incidentally collected” by the US government. If true, this means that someone authorized the monitoring of Trump campaign communications using Section 702 of the FISA Act. Could it have been then-President Obama? We don’t know. Could it have been other political enemies looking for something to harm the Trump campaign or presidency? It is possible. There is much we do not yet know about what happened and there is probably quite a bit we will never know. But we do know ...

Rep. Mo Brooks files bill to repeal Obamacare
Post Date: 2017-03-27 23:01:48 by hondo68
U.S. Congressman Mo Brooks speaks at Washington Update Luncheon sponsored by Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County. (Bob Gathany/bgathany@AL.com) In a simple two-page document, an Alabama congressman has filed a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare. Or, as it is stated in the bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, introduced the bill Friday. "This Act may be cited as the 'Obamacare Repeal Act,'" the bill states. And the bill uses just one sentence to do it. "Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or ...

The GOP’s Obamacare Repeal Bill Is Dead Because Trump Doesn’t Understand How Health Policy Works
Post Date: 2017-03-27 21:22:20 by hondo68
It's hard to make a deal on a policy deal when you don't care about the policy. Molly Reilly/SIPA/NewscomThe House bill to partially repeal and replace Obamacare is officially dead. The American Health Care Act (AHCA), which was scheduled for a vote this afternoon, has been pulled from consideration. The move means that GOP's years-long quest to repeal and replace the health care law has failed. For the foreseeable future, at least, Obamacare will stay on the books. President Trump stumped for the bill aggressively over the last several weeks, and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said today that the president "left everything on the field when it comes to this ...

AG Sessions says he’ll punish sanctuaries, cities could lose billions of dollars
Post Date: 2017-03-27 15:15:47 by cranky
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year, which identified three grant programs — the COPS grants, Byrne ...

Blue Privilege: Cop Gets Speeding Ticket After Running Over Innocent Man, Killing Him
Post Date: 2017-03-26 14:02:14 by Deckard
York County, PA – Blue Privilege is rearing its head again in the case of a homeless man struck and killed when an on-duty cop unnecessarily sped through a 35 mph zone on a rainy night. For a normal citizen, this would likely bring a charge of involuntary manslaughter or vehicular homicide. But for Officer Scott George, it means nothing more than a speeding ticket. York Daily Record reports that George was doing 13 miles over the speed limit, in dark, rainy conditions that would normally call for reducing one’s speed. He was on a non-emergency call to investigate a retail theft, when he struck 74-year-old Raymond Updegraff, a homeless man known as “Rayme” around the ...

Cops Go to Innocent Woman’s Home, Shoot Her Dog for No Reason, Take No Responsibility
Post Date: 2017-03-26 13:56:40 by Deckard
Eastview, KY — Kaytlin McClure didn’t call the police. She had no need to do so. She was just minding her own business in her own home this week, when the police dropped by late at night to pay her a visit. They were canvassing the neighborhood and wanted McClure’s help with their search for a fugitive. But rather than catching their man, they shot her dog. In a Facebook post, McClure described her babies. “I have no kids. My two dogs are my children and are treated as such. I live out in the country. My dogs are trained to potty in the yard and come back to the porch once they are done,” she said speaking with endearment of her beloved pets. She described ...

Ohio Accidentally Legalized Running Red Lights, State Doesn’t Turn Into Chaos
Post Date: 2017-03-26 13:47:40 by Deckard
Ohio — A bill signed into law this week gives Ohio drivers the green light — to run red lights — seriously. When a traffic light turns red, you’re obligated to stop your vehicle and wait until it turns green again — unless you live in Ohio, where, this week, running red lights was legalized. Sufficiently sloppy language in a new law intended to allow bicyclists to treat red lights as stop signs actually permits motorists — at least for the time being — to run a red light in certain situations, and not be ticketed by police. Because bikes and other light means of transportation do not alert traffic signal weight sensors used at many lights in ...

Do Muslims Commit Most U.S. Terrorist Attacks?
Post Date: 2017-03-26 13:29:14 by Deckard
Nope. Not even close. "It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported. In many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it," asserted President Donald Trump a month ago. He was referring to a purported media reticence to report on terror attacks in Europe. "They have their reasons, and you understand that," he added. The implication, I think, is that the politically correct press is concealing terrorists' backgrounds.To bolster the president's claims, the White House then released a list of 78 terror attacks from around the globe that Trump's minions think were underreported. All of the attackers on the list were ...

Is Rick Perry a Raging Homophobe? Media Thinks So
Post Date: 2017-03-26 08:23:14 by HomerBohn
The mainstream media never misses a chance to accuse a Republican of being racist, sexist, homophobic, or some combination of the three, so it was so surprise to see them go after one of their favorite targets last week: Energy Secretary Rick Perry. According to the news reports, Perry, the former Texas governor, is incensed about Texas A&M – where he graduated – electing a gay student body president. The insinuation to the headlines was that Perry was trying to make waves because the student body president is gay. Perry doesn’t like gays, so he went and made up some story about why it was wrong for his alma mater to allow such a thing to occur. If that seems a bit ...

WATCH – Woman’s Food Stamp Card Rejected – Her Shocking Response is Going VIRAL
Post Date: 2017-03-26 07:46:51 by HomerBohn
Welfare leeches have literally made it a career to sponge off We the People, but when you take that free money away, they show you what they really are… petulant little children. After her food stamp card was declined at a local convenience store, a woman rampaged through the store, dumping buckets of candy and throwing food off of shelves all while hollering, “Call the police! Call the police! Do your job! Do your job!” The one-woman riot barged through the small store, destroying everything within her grasp. She even starting throwing bags of food at other patrons. The aftermath looked like a hurricane had rolled through the shop. One customer began filming after a ...

BREAKING: Hannity Drops Criminal BOMBSHELL on Judge Who Blocked Trump Travel Ban
Post Date: 2017-03-26 07:36:32 by HomerBohn
The more we learn about the judge who blocked the travel ban, the more it looks like a conspiracy against Trump. Sean Hannity took to the airwaves recently to raise these connections between Obama and Judge Derrick Watson: “This judge who issued the travel ban ruling is an Obama law school classmate. Maybe he should have recused himself from the case. Just a maybe? Were they best friends in Hawaii? Were they part of the Choom Gang, smoking pot and hanging out and doing a little bit of weed and maybe even a little blow?” (via Conservative 101) We do not know exactly how close they were, but even the specter of doubt, and the fact that they were classmates, should be enough to ...

BREAKING : Kentucky Passes “Blue Lives Matter” Law!
Post Date: 2017-03-26 03:28:18 by Gatlin
Kentucky lawmakers passed a new “Blue Lives Matter” law to combat the hate and violence against police that crops up from domestic terror group Black Lives Matter and other leftists. . It will now be a HATE CRIME to target police officers. As it should be….. From Town Hall To counter the instances of shooting in which police officers were targeted, the state of Kentucky has passed a new law that makes it a hate crime to target law enforcement. Republican Gov. Matt Bevin signed the blue lives matter bill into law. Louisiana also passed a law that afforded hate crime protections to police officers. The bill received bipartisan support and goes into effect this summer (via ...

‘Hello, Bob’: President Trump called my cellphone to say that the health-care bill was dead
Post Date: 2017-03-25 18:49:20 by HomerBohn
President Trump called me on my cellphone Friday afternoon at 3:31 p.m. At first I thought it was a reader with a complaint since it was a blocked number. Instead, it was the president calling from the Oval Office. His voice was even, his tone muted. He did not bury the lead. “Hello, Bob,” Trump began. “So, we just pulled it.” Trump was speaking, of course, of the Republican plan to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, a plan that had been languishing for days amid unrest throughout the party as the president and his allies courted members and pushed for a vote. Before I could ask a question, Trump plunged into his explanation of the politics of deciding to call off a ...

Atlanta family battling state over right to name daughter Allah
Post Date: 2017-03-25 16:15:14 by cranky
The toddler daughter of Elizabeth Handy and Bilal Walk has everything you would expect: a sweet smile, curious nature and finicky tastes. But, in the eyes of the state of Georgia, the 22-month-old child has no name. According to Handy and Walk, the Georgia Department of Public Health refused to issue the infant a birth certificate with the last name the couple chose for their daughter: Allah. The ACLU of Georgia has filed suit on behalf of the couple, who say they can't get a Social Security number for their daughter because they don't have a birth certificate. They also anticipate problems with access to health care, schools and travel. Already, they said, they had to cancel a ...

CNN CouldnÂ’t Cut This Guest Off Fast Enough Before He Exposed How They Control The Narrative!
Post Date: 2017-03-25 08:17:22 by HomerBohn
CNN’s Brian Stelter recently got called out on his show by former intelligence officer Larry Johnson for attempting to control the narrative through pre-interviews. Stelter started to attack Johnson for going on Russian “propaganda” network RT as he put it. Johnson’s response is amazing, and Stelter’s insistence on “setting” Johnson’s point “aside” afterwards is priceless. Most people have no idea this is even a common practice with mainstream establishment media outlets. It’s just one more way they dish out their propaganda to an unsuspecting public. Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change explains how the mainstream media controls what ...

Libertarians are flexing their political muscle
Post Date: 2017-03-25 00:40:23 by hondo68
The American Health Care Act—the “ObamaCare-lite” legislation championed by most Republicans including President Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan—is dead. And it was the most libertarian members of Congress who did the most to kill it—from the very beginning. Reason’s Eric Boehm writes, “On January 13, a week before Donald Trump would take the oath of office and just days after the new session of Congress opened, Republicans in the House passed a budget resolution that was the first step, GOP leaders said, to repealing and replacing Obamacare. The bill passed, 227-198, with just nine Republicans defecting from the party-line effort.” RELATED: The House ...

Rand Paul takes victory lap on GOP health bill

© Greg Nash Rand Paul (R-Ky.) quickly declared victory on Friday, praising conservatives for "standing up against ObamaCare Lite." “I applaud House conservatives for keeping their word to the American people,” Paul said in a statement. Republican leaders pulled their bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare on Friday afternoon, acknowledging that it was headed toward defeat.Paul — who has been a top antagonist of the House bill — added that "I look forward to passing full repeal of ObamaCare in the very near future.” Paul and other House conservatives have offered an alternative repeal bill that mirrors 2015 legislation cleared by Congress but ...

Unbelievable: 4-Year-Old Gets Suspended for Bringing Empty .22 Casing to Preschool
Post Date: 2017-03-24 16:58:43 by Deckard
The American school system has long abandoned its job of teaching the young. It’s not an exaggeration to say that our schools are little more than indoctrination centers. They don’t really prepare our children for the world. They just teach them to be scared, dependent, and to disregard any traditional value. And god forbid one of your boys does something even remotely masculine outside of a physical education class or a football field. In most schools, boys are treated far more harshly than girls are for their bad behaviour. And that may explain what happened to Hunter Jackson, a 4-year-old from Collinsville, Illinois who was attending preschool. During a visit with his grandpa, ...

Lawsuit: Police Destroyed Farm House To Capture Homeless Man Armed With An Ice Cream Bar
Post Date: 2017-03-24 16:50:52 by Deckard
from the USE-ALL-THE-TOYS!!! dept Is it possible to arrest an unarmed homeless person without destroying the residence he's hiding in? To the Fresno County Sheriff's Department and Clovis PD (and far too many other law enforcement agencies), the question remains rhetorical. David Jessen's farmhouse felt the full, combined force of two law enforcement agencies and all their toys last June. According to his lawsuit [PDF], a homeless man was rousted from a nearby vacant house after he was discovered sleeping in the closet. He left peacefully but was soon spotted by the construction crew breaking into Jessen's house. The construction worker, god bless him, called the police ...

SWAT Raids Man’s Home over $100 in Pot, Shoot at Him 57 Times, Paralyze Him, Then Lie About It
Post Date: 2017-03-24 16:42:57 by Deckard
Radley Balko, of the Washington Post, writes a regular column for the newspaper called “The Watch.” Author of Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces,” Balko blogs about criminal justice, the drug war, and civil liberties. In one of his latest pieces on badge abuses, the author addressed, once again, the near homicide of a low-level Myrtle Beach, South Carolina drug dealer (Julian Betton) at the hands of police. Here’s his summary of the incident.  Julian Betton’s offense was to sell $100 worth of pot to a friend. For that, South Carolina police battered down his door, fired 57 shots at him and hit him nine times, leaving him ...
