A man suspected of driving through a military display and destroying crosses that had been placed for a Memorial Day ceremony in a Kentucky park was arrested this weekend, police announced.
Anthony Burrus, 27, was taken into custody Saturday on suspicion of first-degree criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident, the Henderson Police Department said in Facebook post. The arrest came hours after the incident.
Burrus is accused of driving through the Memorial Day display, destroying 20 crosses and damaging another 160, the post stated.
His 1997 Ford Thunderbird was found abandoned at a McDonald’s, according to the post. Pieces of crosses and stakes were found embedded in the tires.
The Henderson community expressed outrage over the incident, which occurred at a Memorial Day tradition that has been taking place for decades.
“It’s disturbing, that somebody just has no respect,” said Tom Davis, whose father started the annual ceremony.
The Wall Street Journal’s deputy editorial page editor Bret Stephens joined Fareed Zakaria Sunday on CNN. Stephens insisted he will not vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump under any circumstance. Stephens told his leftist host Trump needed to be defeated soundly so that “Republican voters will forever learn their lesson.” Breitbart.com reported:
“I most certainly will not vote for Donald Trump,” Stephens said. “I will vote for the least left-wing opponent to Donald Trump and I want to make a vote to make sure that he has — that he is the biggest loser in presidential history since, I don’t know, Alf Landon or going back further. It’s important that Donald Trump and what he represents — this kind of ethnic quote, ‘conservatism,’ or populism be so decisively rebuked that the Republican Party, the Republican voters will forever learn their lesson that they cannot nominate a man so manifestly unqualified to be president in any way, shape or form. So they have to learn a lesson in the way perhaps Democrats learned from McGovern in ’72. George Will said let’s have him lose in 50 states. Why not Guam, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, too?”
The US Government, including all federal, state and local employees, employs nearly as many employees as ALL Fortune 500 companies combined.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of April 2016 more than 22 million people were employed in the US government. Their measurement of government employment covers only civilian employees; military personnel are excluded. Employees of the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, and the Defense Intelligence Agency also are excluded. Postal Services are included.
The US has another 1.4 million military personnel in force today. Combined with the BLS measurement the total number of government employees including the military is more than 23 million. This doesn’t include the CIA and other agencies noted above.
Fortune magazine came out with its list of the 500 largest corporations in America. This list is commonly known as the Fortune 500. The total employment for the 500 largest companies in the US at the end of 2015 was 26.8 million people.
This means that the US government employs nearly as many people (86%) as the top 500 largest corporations in the US today. It’s no wonder that the US is now more than $19 trillion in debt!
As Obama continues to release Islamic terrorists right and left out of Gitmo, he never mentions our Sons who were sentenced to prison in Leavenworth for their defensive actions on the same battlefield.
Several patriotic military mothers, including Bev Perlson, succeeded in the case of Michael Behenna, with much help from an Oklahoma delegation of Republicans who supported his release. Behenna was jailed for five years for killing an al-Qaeda operative. He was released from prison in 2014.
Now after two years of meetings with Congressman Cummings’ office and other Maryland lawmakers, Cummings is finally talking with Congressman Rangel’s office in hopes of getting the Congressional Black Caucus to pen a letter to Obama and the Army, requesting a pardon or reduction in the life sentence of Sgt. Derrick Miller.
Derrick’s lawyer, Colby Vokey, has also sent a packet to Obama and Army asking for pardons of several of our Sons sitting in Leavenworth.
Sgt. Miller was jailed for killing a Taliban operative who tried to grab his gun. DC Exposed reported:
In September 2010, twenty-eight year old Sgt. Derrick Miller, of Hagerstown, Maryland, took part in a combat mission in an area of Afghanistan known to be a Taliban stronghold. An Afghan national who had penetrated a defense perimeter set up by the US Army was brought to Sgt. Miller’s attention by one of the soldiers under his command. This soldier recognized the man from a security checkpoint one day prior. He positively identified him as the driver of a truck which Miller’s security detachment had searched. That search revealed the vehicle was transporting armed combatants to a nearby firefight. Derrick’s men were, at that time, instructed to let the vehicle pass because of instructions handed down by his superiors in command at the time.
The Afghan man appeared to be gathering information, thus portraying suspicious behavior, ultimately leading to Sgt. Miller being sent to question him. At this time he was already confirmed to be an enemy combatant.
The questioning took place in an open area with another soldier and an Afghan interpreter present. During questioning, Sgt. Miller asked the man why he was within the perimeter. As the man began to speak, his story changed, not once, but twice. He originally claimed to be there to fix a power line that was down. Later he claimed he was there to fix a water pump.
Originally he was seen accompanied by two men whom he claimed to be his sons and helpers. However, both of these men left the perimeter without performing any work, and going separate directions to their village. These men were not present during Sgt. Miller’s questioning. While questioning the insurgent things began to get heated. The Afghan insurgent attempted to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon, ultimately leading to him being shot and killed in the struggle.
The military has since identified the deceased as Atta Mohammed, but his name was not used in court.
The two men who escaped were later believed to have been carrying back detailed information to the insurgents with details as to how to most effectively attack.
Today Bev Perlson is hoping Mr. Trump will speak to this issue and at the very least, comment that when he becomes President.
I can tell you Americans out here in the homeland are outraged as the terrorists continue to be released and there is no relief for our Sons. I think Mr. Trump would garner tremendous support if he took a position on this and let the American people know our Sons deserve to go home too.
Jim, there isn’t any road I won’t go down to try and help these Warriors. Hoping you might consider letting the Trump campaign know about this injustice.
Please keep Sgt. Miller in your thoughts and prayers today.
The Freedom Rock, recently installed at the Cedar Falls Veterans Park on Waterloo Road was vandalized during Saturday evening.
Tom Hagarty, commander of the Cedar Falls American Legion No. 237, said the rock was spray painted. Other areas of the park were also damaged by spray paint, he said.
The vandalism is on the side of the rock with Taylor Morris’ drawing. A neighbor’s fence on nearby Bluff Street was also sprayed as was a utility box near the park.
The vandalism was discovered Sunday morning.
Police and park officials have been notified and the investigation continues. Hagarty said Sunday that the parks department will coordinate the cleanup. A Memorial Day ceremony at the park Sunday night was to go on as planned.
The rock includes images of the Five Sullivan Brothers killed in World War II, Medal of Honor winner Robert Hibbs of Cedar Falls, a U.S. Army second lieutenant killed in Vietnam in 1966, and Taylor Morris, a U.S. Navy explosive ordnance disposal expert who survived a bomb blast in Afghanistan despite losing portions of all four limbs. It also bears an image of veterans and people of various generations saluting the flag.
Police say a tough 91-year-old World War II veteran survived a brutal attack by his caregiver who is accused of hitting him on the head with an oxygen tank and then leaving him to die in a pool of blood when he refused to give her a blank check.
Elena Erickson, 45, of North Port, is charged with two counts of attempted murder and tampering with evidence.
Investigators say North Port Fire Rescue crews responded to the home of Michael Nicholas Tristano, age 91, at 8:12 a.m. on May 16. Erickson, who is Tristano’s caregiver, told paramedics that she found Tristano lying in a pool of blood and urine near the dining room table. He had a laceration on his head. Erickson told paramedics that Tristano was home alone from about 10:30 p.m. on May 15 to 8:10 a.m. on May 16 when she arrived to check on him.
According to an arrest affidavit, Tristano had a laceration above his left eye and multiple lacerations to the top and back of his head. He also had skin tears on both of his wrists and forearms.
Tristano was transported to a local hospital. Four days later, detectives interviewed him at the medical center where he was being treated for his injuries. Tristano told detectives that Erickson arrived at his home at 7:45 p.m. on May 15 to care for him as she has done for many years. He said that during the evening, they had been arguing about payment for his care and how he would not give her a blank check for her services. Tristano said that at about 9:30 p.m., Erickson took a portable, aluminum oxygen tank and struck him twice on top of his head while he was sitting at the dining room table.
At one point several Caucasian leftists harassed and abused a black Trump supporter.
The Trump supporter responded: If you go over there with the Trump supporters you are treated civilly. If you go over where people dislike Trump it’s a threat to your life. OK. It’s a threat to your personal wellbeing. You see how all these people act like savages?
Of course, the lying liberal media will NEVER report on this type of racist abuse that is widespread among leftist anti-Trump protesters.
CBS News Political Director: ‘Our Job’ to Steer Away from the Clintons’ Past
News political director John Dickerson told Stephen Colbert that part of a journalist’s job when it comes to covering Bill and Hillary Clinton is to steer conversations away from their pasts.
This stunning admission came Wednesday night in New York City in a live interview that took audience questions. A question surfaced about Bill Clinton’s past and how that could affect Hillary’s chances in the presidential election.
Colbert reiterated the question and added his own tag: “Can Bill Clinton’s past take down Hillary Clinton’s future? I will also say, add Hillary Clinton’s past in there. Can things from the ‘90s count now?”
“Well it’s ah…so it feels like this campaign’s going to be a lot about Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton’s past and Donald Trump’s past. Elections are supposed to be about the future. And it feels like we are not, um, we’re not having that conversation. Although we’ve tried it. Actually, you know, one of our jobs is to try to take the conversation and make it about the future and people’s lives, not about adjudicating the past.”
Dickerson did say an exception could be made if that “past goes to character and temperament which is crucial because we’re not going to be there when the big decisions are made and you need people who have the character and the temperament for the job.”
The Clintons would seem to qualify for his exception, yet Dickerson said, “So, um, I don’t know.”
Watch the video:
Do you recall anyone asking this question in 2012 when Democrats and liberals in media were talking about Romney cutting another guy’s hair in high school?
The rules are always different depending on the party.
FANTASTIC! Donald Trump is looking to hold his acceptance speech at a Cleveland Stadium.
Trump will be intimately involved in the planning of the event and hopes to give it a Hollywood flair. CNN reported:
Donald Trump’s campaign is considering booking one of Cleveland’s big sports venues for his acceptance speech in July, two GOP sources familiar with the planning of the upcoming GOP convention say.
The sources said First Energy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, and Progressive Field, home of the city’s Indians baseball team, are the two sites under consideration for Trump’s acceptance speech on the final night of the convention.
One of the sources said the campaign is closing in on signing a contract for use of one of the two venues, with the football stadium currently the favorite for Trump’s speech.
“It’s going to be a big production,” a Trump campaign adviser told CNN. “Given Trump’s profile and how he handles things, nothing is off the table.”
“And he’s going to be intimately involved in it,” the adviser added.
Yesterday I had lunch with a family friend. Both of us have been involved in Republican politics for decades. We talked about the primary process, who we may have backed at the beginning, how we feel about Trump as the nominee, various specific platform issues.
As we talked I was struck by something…. we disagree on a fair number of issues. She is pro-choice, I am pro-life. We both were leaning toward different potential candidates. Yet we still see ourselves in the same party, on the same “team”. We were both struck by, and proud of, our field of candidates that consisted of both sexes, various races, various religious approaches (some more private, some very public) different backgrounds, ages, career paths. In comparison the progressive offerings are all white, mostly old, mostly career politicians.
It’s funny that progressives and the MSM successfully, but falsely, smear Republicans as lacking diversity at all levels when progressives are the ones that not only lack diversity in their leadership levels, you are kicked off the progressive planation for diversity of thought.
The only diversity they offer is levels of extremism of progressive positions.
Our primary process showed different views on what should be priorities, how they should be addressed. The differences between, say Kasich and Cruz, are huge. And we allow and encourage that. She and I disagree on probably as many things as we agree on, yet there is room for both of us in the party.
Ask yourself what kind of reception a pro-life democrat gets. Or a democrat that wants to address illegal immigration. Diversity of opinion is not allowed in the new Democrat-Socialist Party.
VIDEO: Democrat State Rep Barbara Norton Attacks Declaration Of Independence On House Floor
HB 1035, a bill by Rep. Valarie Hodges that would have mandated that schoolchildren in Louisiana be taught the Declaration of Independence, sailed through the House Education Committee with a 6-2 vote. But Wednesday, when the bill reached the floor of the House, it had a different fate – amid a torrent of squabbling, Hodges returned the bill to the calendar and it’s likely finished for the session.
The Louisiana House of Representatives has 61 Republican members out of 105, and yet it was apparent no consensus for a cornerstone of basic civics in the state’s public schools was available to the bill’s supporters.
And yet, the bill did serve to provide a bit of civic education for the people of Louisiana – although perhaps not the lesson Rep. Hodges was looking for.
What we found out was something many of us knew – namely, that Rep. Barbara Norton, a Democrat from Shreveport, isn’t a fan of our founding documents – and also is a barely sentient being.
Watch the video:
Is there anything Democrats don’t think is racist?
Any individual with government experience in top secret information can tell you they are repeatedly on documentation and privacy rules. The rules are repeated continually. A person with security clearance like the one Hillary Clinton had while Secretary of State would surely had known that classified information was maintained on government servers and that any information even the least bit classified should be handled with care and be confined to well-protected environments, like government servers.
The fact that Mrs. Clinton even decided to house government related emails on her personal server was incomprehensible. The fact that she then decided to cover this up and prevent access to her server criminal.
One challenge for the government in their investigation of Mrs. Clinton is to determine whether Secretary Clinton handed over all her emails over to authorities after she said she did. Clinton’s lawyers admitted that Clinton’s server was wiped clean after it was requested from the Department of Justice and before being handed over.
There ought to be legal consequences for this action but Clinton evidently determined that the consequences would be worse if she turned her emails over to government authorities. Hillary gambled that the FBI would not be able to retrieve the deleted contents on her server. This gamble seemed like a good one for Clinton until recently.
The Associated Press reported in October 2015 that “Hillary Clinton’s private email server maintained in her home was possibly hacked by Russia-tied authorities, and others, on five separate occasions. This is why government officials are required to maintain their emails on government servers.
The AP report noted that investigators discovered among Clinton’s cache of released emails malicious software aimed at transmitting data to three overseas computers, including at least one in Russia.
Recently separate reports noted that Romanian computer hacker Marcel Lazăr Lehel (Guccifer) had indeed hacked Clinton’s emails. It was also reported that Russia cracked into Hillary’s server as well.
Guccifer was transported to the US where he was questioned by the FBI. This week he pleaded guilty to the crimes he committed related to hacking into others’ servers illegally. When discussing Clinton’s email server, Guccifer claimed that it was “completely unsecured”, which he compared to “an open orchid on the internet.”
Guccifer was able to bargain a plea deal with the government. It is unknown what the deal entailed. If Guccifer did hack into Clinton’s private server and if he kept the contents of the emails he took from her server, then Hillary could have a major problem. If he was able to provide investigators copies of Clinton’s emails not already provided by Clinton, then Hillary is in a whole lot of trouble. If there are criminal acts recorded in these emails she is in more trouble.
It looks like Hillary had not counted on someone else having her emails. This is why she should have protected them on a government server!
Thank God for Sarah Palin.
Is there anyone who has done more to shine a light on Barack Obama’s naive and evil anti-American beliefs?
Sarah Palin was a prominent leader of the Tea Party movement.
And today she is a leader of the Trump revolution.
Friday in San Diego Sarah Palin ripped the Boy-Wonder for his pathetic apology tour speech in Hiroshima.
Once again Sarah Palin nails it.
I want a president who inherently knows it weakens us showing up, Memorial Day weekend even! No! Instead of showing up somewhere to promise, hey when you mess with the innocent, you pick a fight with America, you steal our security, you spit on our freedoms, we’ll put a boot in your ass. IT’s the American way!
Barack Obama completed his apology tour in Hiroshima yesterday by equating the genocidal Imperial Japanese army to American patriots in World War II.
Obama also equated today’s Christian world to the barbaric ISIS killers.
Obama called on the world to morally evolve. The LA Times reported:
Speaking slowly and solemnly, a tempo that seemed intended to underline his reach for history, the president noted that as battlefield weapons and tactics evolve, accompanying norms about whether to use them advances only in fits and starts.
“Technological progress without an equivalent progress in human institutions can doom us,” Obama warned. “The scientific revolution that led to the splitting of an atom requires a moral revolution as well. That is why we come to this place.”
Meanwhile, the world called on Barack Obama to quit lying.
Barack Obama’s lying is consistent and outrageous.
Obama’s lying is as predictable as the morning sun.
After seven years of Obama here are his five worst lies. 1.) If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan Number of mentions: 37 times
As Obama was pushing the tremendously unpopular legislation now known as ‘Obamacare’, at least 37 different times he promised that – If you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan. Even the liberal media could not ignore it. This was lie of the year in 2013. After cancellation letters were sent to 4 million Americans, the public finally realized his breezy assurances were wrong.
2.) With Obamacare we will reduce your insurance premiums by $2,500, per family per year Number of mentions: At least 22 times
Barack Obama promised repeatedly that Obamacare would reduce your premiums by $2,500 per year. It was a lie. The exact opposite happened. Average premiums have skyrocketed, for some groups as much as 78 percent.
3.) I cannot pass amnesty through executive action… I am not a dictator Number of mentions: At least 22 times
At least 22 times Obama said he couldn’t do executive amnesty himself. Then he implemented an immunity scheme via executive fiat. “In bypassing Congress, Obama blatantly ignored the rule of law that is the foundation of our democracy and violated his presidential oath to uphold the laws of this land.”
4.) Not one dime of Obamacare will go for abortions
Number of mentions: At least 12 times
1,036 Obamacare plans cover abortions.
In spite of repeated promises that Obamacare would not pay for abortions, it is now clear that Obama lied. The GAO confirmed that Obama lied about this and if fact 1,036 Obamacare plans pay for abortions. In fact, the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of Catholic nuns who provide care for the poor, were forced to file a class action mandate to obtain a judgment so they could refrain from providing access to abortion-inducing drugs.
5.) It was not my decision to pull all the troops from Iraq Number of mentions: 2 times, maybe more
When Obama was running for reelection in 2012, he repeatedly took credit for “ending the war in Iraq.” Then in August 2014, when he sent troops back to Iraq to fight ISIS, Obama said removing U.S. troops from Iraq was not “my decision.” As a result of this reckless move, thousands of innocents have been murdered (including many beheadings), enslaved, relocated forcefully, terrorized and tortured. The horror of Obama’s Iraq blunder will be felt for generations.
These are just President Obama’s most notorious lies.
Please quit lying, Barack. Please!
People are being hurt and you don’t seem to care.
Death Threat to Trump at Protest: ‘He’ll Be Dead Within a Week’
Hundreds of protesters gathered outside a Donald Trump rally on Friday, chanting “f**k Donald Trump” and holding obscene signs — including one that included a death threat against Trump should he win the presidency in November.
The young protester held up a sign that read: “If TRUMP wins He’ll be DEAD with in A week The Cartel wont have his Bullsh*t.”..
Mexican flags waved as the crowd flooded the street in front of the San Diego Convention Center, where Trump was speaking.
At one point bottles were thrown at police, and in the course of the protests, several people were detained. Several piñatas depicted Trump, including one whose head had been severed in the street, with the rest just a crumpled bit of papier-mâché.
Daham Al Hasan has been given approval to bring over 12 more kids and another two wives. (Express.co)
Syrian migrant Daham Al Hasan says he is too sick to work. He lives in Denmark now with eight children. The government just gave Daham approval to bring his two other wives and their 12 children to Denmark under its reunification program.
Here’s another shot of Al Hasan with a few of his 20 children.
It’s been a tough seven years for the narcissist man-boy wishing away evil in our time. Today he continued down that path in Hiroshima by equating the American efforts in World War II with the Imperial Japanese Army.
Charles Krauthammer ripped Obama after Obama’s latest show of ignorance.
Krauthammer: Obama closed the apology tour today in Hiroshima. And to say it wasn’t a form of apology, of course he wasn’t going to use the word. And yes he did speak in the abstract but he did it in Hiroshima… Look, this is a visit he should have made next year as a private citizen. In which case he could speak like a naive private citizen about escaping the logic of fear… And the president speaking as president, representing the United States, I thought it was embarrassing utopianism and the implicit apology dishonored our nation.
In July 2015 Donald Trump ripped on Senator John McCain during an event in Iowa. This was after McCain insulted Donald Trump and his supporters.
“He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”
Of course, the media and many conservatives were very upset about his comments.
On Friday Rush Limbaugh admitted that he advised Donald Trump after his McCain prisoner comments. Rush told him not to apologize. The Rush Limbaugh Show reported:
CALLER: You never advised him?
RUSH: What’s that?
CALLER: You never gave him advice?
RUSH: No. I have never advised him. Not personally. I take it back. When the McCain thing happened in the campaign last fall, I did get a call from Mr. Trump, just to say hi. It was about a week after he had said that he doesn’t like military people that get captured. He’d prefer to support military people that don’t get captured, and he was talking about McCain. And he asked me if I thought he should apologize. I said, “Not now, it’s a week, no, no, no, don’t.” That’s it. That’s the only time, Quinn. I’m not an advisor. I’m not a confidant. There are all kinds of other people who are, but I’m not.
CALLER: Well, what about the radio? What about all the, oh, I don’t know, tweaks for him more than anyone. Because you taught us how to listen, sir.
RUSH: Why do you think I’m the one that taught him how to — on what basis do you say that? Don’t misunderstand my tone. I’m genuinely curious. What in the world has happened that makes you think I’m the one that taught him how to listen? I don’t think he does, by the way —
CALLER: You taught us how to listen. No, he needs to learn how to listen a little bit better. It just smells like it’s got your touch. It just feels like your touch is there. And it’s so great. I’m very interested in how this is going.
RUSH: Well, did you hear yesterday’s program? Because yesterday’s program was all about how Trump’s following his instincts. And in my own mind I’ve got a lot in common with him on that. We’ve never talked about it. We’ve never once talked about any of this performance stuff. But in my own career — you know, I told him yesterday, on the air, and last week, too, I said that now that he’s won, for all intents and purposes, the nomination, he’s gonna be under a lot of pressure from people within his own circle to change.
Rush Limbaugh spoke about Donald Trump’s brilliant idea to debate Socialist Bernie Sanders on live TV. Rush says it scares the hell out of Democrats because “the mask will be off” if Crazy Bernie goes on national TV and reveals what the Democratic Party is all about. The Rush Limbaugh Show reported:
I’m here to tell you, folks, that the reason why there is such panic and palpable fear on the Democrat side that this may actually happen, they are afraid the public is going to end up seeing the real Democrat agenda, with the mask off and with no camouflage, if they put Bernie out there. I mean, Hillary’s a radical socialist, too, but she knows how to cover it up. She knows how to hide it. She knows how to mask it. She knows how to camouflage it. She’s much better at that. So was Slick Willie. Obama is good at hiding it. Crazy Bernie doesn’t even try to.
Crazy Bernie is just pedal-to-the-metal, testicles to the wall as far as he can go on this, and nobody has seen it. This is the most exciting guy in the Democrat Party. That’s why they’re worried, folks. Remember, Democrat Party, it’s as true today as it was 27 years when I started this program. They cannot win national elections by being honest about their intentions.
Just to reillustrate. If Barack Obama told everybody what was gonna happen to the national debt before he ran for office as part of his campaign, he wouldn’t have gotten elected. If he had explained exactly what was going to happen with the passage of Obamacare, he would not have been elected. He had to lie (paraphrasing), “If you like your doctor, you get to keep your doctor. Like your plan, get to keep your plan, premiums coming down $2,500.” They have to lie about their intentions and they have to lie about the outcome, the results.
Crazy Bernie doesn’t. Crazy Bernie’s out there proudly, happily shouting all of this crazy, left-wing socialism stuff. Somebody asked him, “Crazy Bernie, how do you explain Venezuela?” He didn’t want to go there. You know, when you ask an avowed socialist about any avowed socialist failure, you either don’t get an answer or you get some derivative, “Well, you know, they didn’t have enough money. Well, you know, the right people weren’t in charge. I’m the right people. We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for,” something like that.
But he was asked about Venezuela, the other South American countries that are falling apart by Univision, of all people, that’s who asked him, and his response was in effect to tell ’em to shut up. He said he wants ’em to concentrate on his campaign, as if the real-life effect of radical socialism doesn’t have a bearing on the campaign of a radical socialist.
CALLING ALL TRUMP-HATERS AND HILLARY SUPPORTERS! The Weekly Standard magazine is holding a #NeverTrumper cruise in December so all of the Trump haters and Hillary supporters can go drown their sorrows after Trump wins the election.

We should all buy tickets and wear Trump T-shirts to all the talks.
A French soldier was stabbed by ISIS sympathizers in Saint Julian du Puy by Islamists angry over Syria bombings. Express.co reported:
A FRENCH soldier is fighting for his life in hospital after reportedly being stabbed by two men who yelled that the attack was in revenge for the bombing campaign against Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.
The trooper, from the 8th regiment of marine parachutists, is said to be “seriously injured” in hospital after being set upon whilst out jogging alone near his army base.
The alleged attack took place at around 8.40pm yesterday evening in the southern town of Saint Julien du Puy, which lies around 70 miles to the east of Toulouse.
Reports in French media stated that the 30-year-old sergeant said he was punched and slashed several times with a knife, sustaining a serious wound to his thigh.
The soldier has reportedly told police that the men shouted at him that the attack was in revenge for France’s airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.
Passers-by who discovered the stricken sergeant then called the emergency services, who rushed him to hospital in a “serious condition”.
It is believed that he was not on duty at the time, but was still wearing some of his military uniform.
During his press conference on Thursday DONALD TRUMP was asked about hard left Senator and fake Indian Elizabeth Warren.
The GOP presidential nominee said Warren was “as Native American as he was.”
I really think if her record was exposed and the fact that she was a native American, she says she was a native American but she wasn’t able to document it. She said, “I have high cheekbones. You see, I have high cheekbones so I’m native American.” And she then, I don’t know if you call it a fraud or not, but she was able to get into various schools because she applied as a fact she was a native American. She was probably able to get other things. I think she’s as Native American as I am.
Trump later tweeted about Warren pretending to be Native American to get into Harvard.
This got under Warren’s redskin.
Warren added this tweet as if it excused her from lying about her heritage.
If @realDonaldTrump means my job at Harvard, he can ask Charles Fried, Solicitor General for Reagan. He says loud & clear that’s a lie.
And Warren DID LIE about her heritage.
She was listed as the Harvard Law’s “first woman of color” in 1997 law review piece on diversity and affirmative action!
Elizabeth Warren has pushed back hard on questions about a Harvard Crimson piece in 1996 that described her as Native American, saying she had no idea the school where she taught law was billing her that way and saying it never came up during her hiring a year earlier, which others have backed up.
But a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described her as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color,” based, according to the notes at the bottom of the story, on a “telephone interview with Michael Chmura, News Director, Harvard Law (Aug. 6, 1996).”
But facts don’t matter to the current US president.
Today Barack Obama equated all the players in World War II – and ignored the atrocities of the Japanese military.
What an offensive idiot. The New York Times posted the transcript of Obama’s Hiroshima speech.
Why do we come to this place, to Hiroshima? We come to ponder a terrible force unleashed in a not-so-distant past. We come to mourn the dead, including over 100,000 Japanese men, women and children, thousands of Koreans, a dozen Americans held prisoner.
Their souls speak to us. They ask us to look inward, to take stock of who we are and what we might become.
It is not the fact of war that sets Hiroshima apart. Artifacts tell us that violent conflict appeared with the very first man. Our early ancestors having learned to make blades from flint and spears from wood used these tools not just for hunting but against their own kind. On every continent, the history of civilization is filled with war, whether driven by scarcity of grain or hunger for gold, compelled by nationalist fervor or religious zeal. Empires have risen and fallen. Peoples have been subjugated and liberated. And at each juncture, innocents have suffered, a countless toll, their names forgotten by time.
The world war that reached its brutal end in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was fought among the wealthiest and most powerful of nations. Their civilizations had given the world great cities and magnificent art. Their thinkers had advanced ideas of justice and harmony and truth. And yet the war grew out of the same base instinct for domination or conquest that had caused conflicts among the simplest tribes, an old pattern amplified by new capabilities and without new constraints.
In the span of a few years, some 60 million people would die. Men, women, children, no different than us. Shot, beaten, marched, bombed, jailed, starved, gassed to death. There are many sites around the world that chronicle this war, memorials that tell stories of courage and heroism, graves and empty camps that echo of unspeakable depravity.
Yet in the image of a mushroom cloud that rose into these skies, we are most starkly reminded of humanity’s core contradiction. How the very spark that marks us as a species, our thoughts, our imagination, our language, our toolmaking, our ability to set ourselves apart from nature and bend it to our will — those very things also give us the capacity for unmatched destruction.
How often does material advancement or social innovation blind us to this truth? How easily we learn to justify violence in the name of some higher cause.
Every great religion promises a pathway to love and peace and righteousness, and yet no religion has been spared from believers who have claimed their faith as a license to kill.
Nations arise telling a story that binds people together in sacrifice and cooperation, allowing for remarkable feats. But those same stories have so often been used to oppress and dehumanize those who are different.
What an idiot.
He’s still equating all religious violence unwilling to see the 28,452 deadly attacks in the name of Islam since the 9-11 attacks in New York and Washington. And how many Christian attacks have occurred during this same time frame?
Obama snaps at reporter asking about Hillary Clinton’s emails
President Obama brusquely cut off a reporter’s question Thursday about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system at the State Department.
At a press conference in Japan, the president said he would take one more question from reporters. But when the question turned out to be about Mrs. Clinton’s emails that violated State Department rules, he quickly changed his mind.
“You know I take it back — I’m not taking another question,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re in Japan, don’t you have something to do with Asia that we want to talk about? I’ll be talking about this in Washington the whole time.”
He added, “I’ve already said a lot on those issues — I think these are better directed to the campaign.”
An inspector general found Wednesday that Mrs. Clinton did break State Department rules by setting up her own secret email server, and said she failed to report hacking attempts and waved off warnings that she should switch to a more official email account.
Unlike Bernie Sanders, most Americans would like to hear more about Hillary’s damn emails.
Donald Trump won the nomination defeating 16 Republicans in the largest primary field ever assembled by a major party.
On Thursday night the Trump campaign released a compilation of anti-Trumpers saying he’d never be the Republican nominee.
The video starts with Barack Obama who is the worst economic president since the Great Depression.
Here’s another video montage of Trump naysayers insisting Trump will never win the Republican Nomination.

Last year 1,200 migrants with beards pretended to be “refugee” children to enter Sweden in 2015.
The migrants were carrying signs begging locals for assistance for child refugees. (Exponerat)
Now this… Swedish authorities blamed teenage girls and alcohol for a steep rise in sexual attacks by migrants including assaults on children. Express.co reported:
SWEDISH police have blamed Scandinavian teenage girls’ “Nordic alcohol culture” and Western behaviour for a steep rise in sex attacks carried out by migrants.
The damning police report, which is looking at why Sweden has the worst rates of physical and sexual violence committed against women and girls in Europe, has also excused refugees who it says “cannot handle the alcohol”.
Shockingly, the report revealed the majority of sex attack victims were under the age 15.
Police also admitted the majority of attacks have taken place in public places had been committed by migrants.
But it says refugees might not be able to “handle the alcohol” and simply feel “horny” and have “ignorance of the consequences for the girls”.
The report also warns that girls in Sweden are called “whores” and abused for “their clothes” which leaves many too scared to walk the streets.
