Houston Area Says Good Bye To Deputy Darren Goforth, “One Of The Good Guys”

Prayers for his family.

HOUSTON (AP) — Thousands of law enforcement officers stood at attention to form a wall Friday outside one of Houston’s largest churches as a 21-gun salute and flyover by police helicopters were carried out in honor of a slain sheriff’s deputy.

The symbolic gestures followed the funeral for Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, who was gunned down at a gas pump a week ago.

“We come to this place with heavy hearts, and have questions we don’t really understand,” Lt. Don Savell, the chaplain for the sheriff’s department, said as the ceremony at Second Baptist Church began. “We gather to share the grief we all feel and perhaps to find the strength to bear our sorrow and to look for seeds of hope.”

The church, which holds 7,000 people, was filled. Some officers stood outside and watched the service on big-screen televisions, while other spectators gathered outside the suburban convenience store where Goforth was killed to view the funeral on screens set up there. Flowers, balloons, posters and written messages in memory of Goforth still surround the pump where he was shot.

Christie, Kasich Refuse To Criticize Black Lives Matter Rhetoric

Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 6.09.41 PM

They’re still in the race? Just one more reason to say, buh bye…

BERLIN, N.H. — The Republican primary’s scramble to the right has led to pointed criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement, and of the Obama administration’s approach to police reform. After Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) criticized the president for “vilifying” law enforcement, other candidates found reasons to blame Democrats for an atmosphere where protesters could chant threats to police.

“In the last six years under President Obama, we’ve seen a rise in anti-police rhetoric,” wrote Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) in an op-ed this week. “Instead of hope and change, we’ve seen racial tensions worsen and a tendency to use law enforcement as a scapegoat. This kind of attitude has created a culture in which we all too often see demonstrations and chants where people describe police as ‘pigs’ and call for them to be ‘fried like bacon.'”

That comment was quickly endorsed by the Wisconsin Professional Police Association. Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), who did not go quite as far as Cruz or Walker, pointedly declared a Sept. 14 “day of prayer” for law enforcement.

But the other two sitting governors seeking the White House, both from diverse and urban states, resisted the pressure. At a Wednesday morning campaign stop in Hooksett, N.H., Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) faced a question about “political correctness” from Marc Miville, a city councilor. “A cop is getting killed every day,” Miville said.

Kasich responded by joking that he’d “never been accused of political correctness,” and by briefly describing the work he’d done in Ohio to connect police to community leaders. After the event, Miville told the Washington Post that he was seriously concerned by the political embrace of “Black Lives Matter” activists.

Abilene Police Arrest Alleged Killers Of Officer Don Allen, Officer’s Gun Still Missing

Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 5.44.07 PM

ABILENE, TX – Police have arrested and charged two people suspected of killing an Abilene police officer.

Phillip Walter, 29, and Violetta Walter, 30, were linked to stolen property taken from officer Don Allen’s home.

Shortly after 6 p.m., the Texas Rangers and officers with APD arrested the couple at a south Abilene apartment complex with arrest warrants obtained by the Texas Rangers. Both suspects were charged with first-degree felony murder, which carries confinement from 5-99 years, or life in prison.

Their bond has been set at $500,000 each.

The Abilene Police Chief said it will be up to the Texas Rangers and the District Attorney as to whether they pursue capital murder charges.

The police chief said the department is confident they have taken the correct people into custody and do not believe there are other suspects.

The alleged killers have three children and according to the police, the husband, Phillip Walter, has a history of crime. There is nothing in their social media that would specifically link them to Black Lives Matter or any radical groups. The police have said this was a premeditated murder in the officers home, making this then a very unusual case, yet the police haven’t explained the motive in this case. There was a report that the officer had been tortured and anti-cop slurs written on the wall in his home, however the police have denied that.

According to Big Country:

Recovered items include a Tazer, baton, two pairs of handcuffs, a clipboard, and an old badge.

Items still missing include a Glock 22 .40-calibur handgun, duty belt, can of O.C. spray (pepper spray), flashlight, and a Harris brand police radio. Sgt. Beard says the radio was remotely disabled when it was discovered missing.

Information from an APD tip line and emails from citizens helped police determine that both suspects were selling multiple items from home and attempting to sell some of the police-duty items which are still missing.

Sgt. Beard says police do not believe that the people who purchased these items know that the property belonged to APD, and he encourages anyone who may have purchased one of these items on or after August 31 or had contact with the suspects to come forward.

Investigators are prepared to arrange for the safe return of the items “in a manner that’s beneficial to everyone,” Beard said.

Hispanic Group Outraged MSNBC Cutting José Díaz-Balart’s Show From Two Hours To Just One…

Racists!

Via Mediaite:

As first reported by Mediaite, MSNBC is currently planning to scale back The Daily Rundown with José Díaz-Balart to only one hour instead of two. But that report has angered a Latino advocacy group, who note that José Díaz-Balartis MSNBC’s only Hispanic host.

The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA) sent an open letter to MSNBC honchos Andrew Lack and Phil Griffin “Since MSNBC’s launch in 1996, José Díaz-Balart has been the first and only Latino anchor on your network,” they write. […]

“NHLA, which is comprised of 40 preeminent national Latino organizations, strongly opposes the type of programming restructuring reported by Mediate. In light of our recent meeting where we were assured that more Latino representation would be a priority for the network, any changes to minimize or eliminate José Díaz-Balart’s two-hour show will be meet with strong organizational opposition.”

If the facts are as stated, then why are police bemoaning this? Had he not had the gun, he and his sibling might be dead.

Iran: “We Welcome War”, Pledges “To Set Fire To U.S Interests”

Still laughing at moron in chief.

Via Free Beacon:

A senior Iranian military official has vowed to “set fire” to all U.S. interests in the region and maintained that the Islamic Republic welcomes war with America, according to regional reports demonstrating that Tehran is still committed to fighting the United States in the wake of a recently inked nuclear accord.

“In threatening remarks,” a top Iranian commander of the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) stated that Iran is prepared to “annihilate” U.S. and Israeli war forces should they “take the slightest military move against Iran,” according to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency.

“We monitor their acts day and night and will take every opportunity to set fire to all their economic and political interests if they do a wrong deed,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the IRGC’s lieutenant commander, was quoted as saying in Tehran on Thursday.

In a direct threat to both the United States and Israel, Salami promised to “cut off enemies’ hands and fingers will then send its dust to the air,” according to the report.

Mr De Blasio’s Neighborhood: Thousands Sleeping On Streets In NYC, Homeless Encampments Springing Up Everywhere

Not only an increase in numbers, but they are also more emotionally disturbed as well, which I’ve observed personally.

Via Daily Mail:

They are sleeping in front of the Empire State building, sprawled in front of the doors of Macy’s, and panhandling outside Grand Central.

New York is in the grip of a homeless epidemic so bad that it has raised fears of the city slipping back into the disorder of the 1970s and 1980s.

The city’s police chief this week said that as many as 4,000 people are now sleeping rough in the city, in a crisis which even the city’s ultra-liberal mayor has finally acknowledged after months of denials.

Police officers have identified 80 separate homeless encampments in the city, 20 of which are so entrenched that they have their own furniture, while its former mayor Rudolph Giuliani has spoken scathingly of how his successor is failing to keep order.

Taxpayers Fleeing Democrat Run States For Republican Run States

Wish Obama would flee too.

Via ATR:

In 2013, more than 200,000 people on net fled states with Democrat governors for ones run by Republicans, according to an analysis of newly released IRS data by Americans for Tax Reform.

“People move away from high tax states to low tax states. Every tax refugee is sending a powerful message to politicians,” said ATR President Grover Norquist. “They are voting with their feet. Leaders in Texas and Florida are listening. New York and California are not.”

That year, Democrat-run states lost a net 226,763 taxpayers, bringing with them nearly $15.7 billion in adjusted gross income (AGI). That same year, states with Republican governors gained nearly 220,000 new taxpayers, who brought more than $14.1 billion in AGI with them.

Here’s the thing the reporter didn’t even bother asking, if it isn’t also about evangelizing, why the number asking ‘why Islam’? Meaning why would you or should you follow Islam?

He doesn’t ask the Islamic proponent how do you explain the poor treatment of women in Islamic countries?

Further, he didn’t offer any opinion on the people behind the sign, ICNA. ICNA’s handbook states the goal is the establishment of Islam.

Working in an ‘Islamic Movement’ culminates in an Islamic super-state, the Caliphate, the hand book says. Believers have an obligation to strive to reestablish a collective body of Muslims worldwide, organized into the super-state under the direction of a Caliphate and Islamic law. The group wants “the united Muslim Ummah [community] in a united Islamic state, governed by an elected khalifah in accordance with the laws of shari’ah.”

Trump Confuses Quds With Kurds In Questioning By Hugh Hewitt

You don’t have to know every name but you do have to have an understanding of the gravity of the threat, the basic players and the willingness to take it on once you’re in.

Via Weekly Standard:

Radio host Hugh Hewitt interviewed Donald Trump Thursday and asked the Republican frontrunner some details on foreign policy. After Trump confused some terminology, he accused Hewitt of asking “gotcha questions.”

Hewitt, who will also be moderating CNN’s September 16 presidential debate, first asked Trump if he was familiar with General Qasem Soleimani. When Trump asked for a little more information about Soleimani, Hewitt said, “He runs the Quds Forces,” the Iranian military unit that engages in terrorism and guerilla tactics outside of Iran. But Trump seemed to have confused that term with the Kurds, an ethnic group being targeted by ISIS in northern Iraq.

“The Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated,” Trump began.

General Soleimani went to Russia in violation of the sanctions against Iran. The Obama regime’s response? Not condemnatory, not we wouldn’t make the deal if you keep violating the rules, but ‘we’re concerned’. But you can’t criticize them for the underreaction if you don’t know who he is. Ted Cruz was asked a question about him in the debate and answered it very well.
