Sheriff Addresses #BlackLivesMatter ‘Rhetoric’ in Press Conference on Executed Deputy

Hickman at presser
The escalation of anti-white and anti-cop rhetoric has been building since militant black activists began marching in support of #BlackLivesMatter after the suicide of Sandra Bland. At protests at the jail where Bland killed herself, a radical activist called for all white people to be killed, and heavily armed members of the New Black Panther Party chanted “the revolution has started … off the pigs.” A Texas-based internet radio show called for the lynching of whites and the killing of police officers. This week, two white journalists and a white deputy sheriff have been assassinated by blacks who appear to be carrying out the message of hate. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said, “This rhetoric has gotten out of control …”

Jeb: Trump’s Wall Won’t Work

Sunday on New York City’s AM 970’s “The Cats Round Table” hosted by John Catsimatidis, Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said his rival Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border won’t work. After talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, Bush said, “What they said is a wall doesn’t work. It just doesn’t work. You can’t build a wall on the rugged terrain that exists there.” He continued, “What Donald Trump is proposing is a wall that can’t be built. And if it was to be built it would be hundreds of billions of dollars. He wants everybody to be deported which will tear family life asunder, would cost an arm and a leg, hundred of billions of dollars again and it will probably be unconstitutional.” “It’s not realistic and its not conservative,” he added.

Jorge Ramos: Latinos Won’t Forget Trump Promoting Bigotry and Hatred

AFP/Jim Watson
Sunday on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,”  while discussing his confrontation with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump last week at a press conference, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said next year at the polls Latino voters “won’t forget,” Trump “promoting in his speeches bigotry and hatred.” Ramos said, “I think it’s very important that as journalists we challenge those who are in power. And I think it’s very dangerous that he wants to do the mass deportation in history, that would cost more than $137 billion. And I think it’s very dangerous that he’s promoting in his speeches bigotry and hatred against immigrants. After I was expelled from that press conference, I saw a man, a Trump sympathizer who said, get out of my country. Interesting because I’m also a U.S. citizen, but this happened just seconds after he told me, go back to Univision. Those messages of hatred that’s precisely

MI6 Spy Found Dead in Bag in Bath Had Hacked Clinton Data

The MI6 spy who was found dead inside a holdall bag in his bathtub in London hacked into secret data held on former U.S. President Bill Clinton, The Sun newspaper has sensationally claimed today.  Gareth Williams was 31 years old when he was found naked, dead in his own bathtub in Pimlico, just a few minutes walk away from Britain’s Houses of Parliament. Speculation has been rife ever since his death in September 2010 about the circumstances surrounding his death. A Metropolitan Police investigation revealed predictably, though suspiciously, that Mr Williams’ death was “probably an accident”. This was despite an initial inquest concluding that his death was “unnatural and likely to have been criminally mediated.” Since then the unexplained death has been the subject of investigation by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The BBC reported as early as December 2010 that Mr Williams had been on secondment from Britain’s signals intelligence

Walker: Talk About Changing the Constitution a ‘Distraction’

Scott Walker
Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while discussing the controversy over calls for changing birthright citizenship in the 14th amendment Republican presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) said when politicians bring up changing the Constitution, they are just trying to distract. Walker said, “What I have point out repeatedly since the beginning of this year, people have heard me say this a thousand times, secure the border, enforce the laws, no amnesty, go forward in a way that provides for a legal immigration system that puts a priority in American working families and their wages in a way that will improve the American economy. I said it — whether it’s talking about the 14th amendment or anything else, until we secure the borders and enforce the law, we shouldn’t talk about any other issue. Politicians that do are trying to distract from the fact that for years in this town, in

FNC’s Rod Wheeler: If Texas Deputy Murder Had Been Other Way Around ‘We Would Be Burning Down CVS Right Now’

Amid the on-going development of white Texas Deputy Darren Goforth being shot and killed execution-style allegedly by a black male by the name of Shannon Juruary Miles, former homicide detective Rod Wheeler suggested on Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Fox News Channel that if the roles had been reversed and Goforth killed Miles, there would outrage and they would be “burning down CVS right now.” Wheeler, who predicted in December that more copycat murders on police would take place after the murder of two New York officers, called for the outrage from politicians “from both sides of the aisle.” “The only motive that I can see from a homicide detective’s perspective is the fact that this was a uniformed police officer with a badge on his chest and crosshairs on his back. But not only was he in uniformed police officer, he was a white uniformed police officer and I think this really could be considered a hate crime.” He later added, “If in this

Jindal: Voters Will Get Past Trump’s ‘Summer of Silliness,’ ‘Insults’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Republican presidential hopeful Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) said voters will get past Republican front-runner’s Donald Trump’s “summer of silliness, and insults,” and center in on a candidate with “intelligence, the courage, the experience.” Jindal said, “I think Donald Trump has done a great job of tapping into the anger and frustration voters feel not only with President Obama but with the Republican leadership as well.  What the polls tell me is that nobody has any real votes right now. I think that after we get past this summer of silliness, and insults the voters will look at who’s prepared to do the job? Who has the intelligence, the courage, the experience? I believe I’m the candidate best able to do this job on the first day. ” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Report: ‘Francis Effect’ Prompts Six in Ten American Catholics to Support Gay Marriage

Barack Obama, Pope Francis
Support for gay marriage is higher among American Catholics than it is in the general population, a new study claims, with one in six Catholics giving the go-ahead to same sex unions. The study comes as Catholics worldwide urge Pope Francis to clarify the Church’s position on marriage. The study, conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute and funded by the Henry Luce Foundation surveyed 1,331 Americans in early August and found that approximately one in five, a total of 384 people surveyed, were Catholic. When those respondents were asked whether gays and lesbians should have the legal right to marry, 60 per cent of them said yes, against 55 per cent of respondents overall. Almost 53 per cent of Catholics disagreed that same-sex marriage goes against their religious beliefs, while 42 per cent agreed, and 76 per cent of Catholics favoured laws to protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender

Watch: Blackburn, Brazile Battle Over Hillary Comparing GOP to Terrorists

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Democratic political consultant Donna Brazile battled over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s comments last week comparing Republican candidates views on abortion to terrorists. Blackburn said the comments were “inappropriate, over the top, uncalled for.” Brazile claimed Clinton “was making a contrast, not a comparison,” which led to the back-and-forth.
