Just your average liberal stricken with white guilt.
A man stabbed a fully marked Maricopa County Sheriff’s Posse vehicle on Wednesday in Fountain Hills, authorities said.
Deputies reported Zachary Jacobson, 20, said he attacked the vehicle because he “hates the police” and “wanted to send a message to everyone,” according to a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office statement.
The statement said Jacobson jumped on the hood of the vehicle while holding a butcher knife with an 8-inch blade.
Posse members ordered Jacobson to drop the knife at gunpoint, at which point he stabbed the hood of the patrol vehicle, piercing the metal, the statement said.
“This is a scary time for all law enforcement,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “We are dealing with a war on cops. People are randomly shooting our law-enforcement officials, then this guy targets a fully marked sheriff’s vehicle to send a message.”

Hillary Clinton’s email problems are already causing headaches for her presidential campaign. But within American counterintelligence circles, there’s a mounting sense that the former secretary of state may not be the only Obama administration official in trouble. This is a scandal that has the potential to spread to the White House, as well.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation can be expected to be tight-lipped, especially because this highly sensitive case is being handled by counterintelligence experts from Bureau headquarters a few blocks down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, not by the FBI’s Washington Field Office. That will ensure this investigation gets the needed “big picture” view, since even senior FBI agents at any given field office may only have a partial look at complex counterintelligence cases.
And this most certainly is a counterintelligence matter. There’s a widely held belief among American counterspies that foreign intelligence agencies had to be reading the emails on Hillary’s private server, particularly since it was wholly unencrypted for months. “I’d fire my staff if they weren’t getting all this,” explained one veteran Department of Defense counterintelligence official, adding: “I’d hate to be the guy in Moscow or Beijing right now who had to explain why they didn’t have all of Hillary’s email.” Given the widespread hacking that has plagued the State Department, the Pentagon, and even the White House during Obama’s presidency, senior counterintelligence officials are assuming the worst about what the Russians and Chinese know.
Islamist militants al Shabaab issued a warning against Somalis who frequent hotels, beaches and nightclubs in the capital Mogadishu, saying it will target men and women who engage in “immoral culture.”
Al Shabaab frequently stages bomb and gun attacks in the capital – and especially around popular hotels – in its bid to topple Somalia’s Western-backed government and impose a harsh version of Islamic law.
Somalia, which descended into chaos after dictator Mohamed Siad Barre was ousted in 1991, is trying to rebuild after two decades of conflict and chaos.
Improvements to the security situation in Mogadishu has led some Somalis to return from the diaspora, and they have brought with them habits of playing music into the night and swimming in Mogadushu’s white sand Indian Ocean beaches.
“Let Muslims avoid going to the hotels where men and women misbehave,” Sheikh Ali Jabal, Al Shabaab’s leader for the capital region, said in a statement. “Anybody engaged in this immoral culture is seen as part of the enemies that invaded Somalia.”
Somali authorities had no immediate response to the threat.
Feminists suck at life.
How anti-feminist of him!
Kermit the Frog has announced that, despite yesterday’s rumors, a pig puppet named Denise is actually not his new girlfriend.
Unfortunately, his announcement didn’t come soon enough — people had already started freaking out about how sick and anti-feminist it was that Denise was thinner and younger than his ex Miss Piggy.
“Well, apparently Kermit can’t get enough of women like his ex – as long as they’re younger and thinner than her and less successful than him (but still work at ABC, so he can rub her in Miss Piggy’s face),” Megan Carpentier, the U.S. opinion editor for The Guardian, wrote in a piece titled “Kermit the Frog’s New Girlfriend Is Younger, Thinner — and Blander.”
Punching for dollars.
FERGUSON • Two people face felony assault charges after a fight that broke out last October in a Ferguson parking lot over the sale of commemorative Michael Brown shirts.
Latonya R. Ewings, 35, of the 3500 block of Illinois Avenue in St. Louis, and Calvin Carter, 36, of the 2400 block of Petrova Avenue in Jennings, were each charged Tuesday with one count of second-degree assault.
Court documents say Tony Petty was helping Pearlie Gordon sell “Justice for Mike Brown” merchandise under a tent at Red’s BBQ, a restaurant at 9300 West Florissant Avenue, on Oct. 18. Michael Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer on Aug. 9, 2014, prompting civil unrest here and nationwide.
Gordon is the mother of Michael Brown Sr.’s wife, Calvina. Gordon said at the time that she was selling the shirts with Petty and another man that afternoon when a group of about 20 to 30 people rushed them.
One of them was Lesley McSpadden, Michael Brown’s mother, who told Gordon she couldn’t sell the shirts. Gordon replied that McSpadden didn’t have a patent on the name and that she was going to keep selling the items.

Protests on the day of the first court hearing in the death of Freddie Gray were small and mostly peaceful, but they briefly turned heated when police arrested an activist at the Inner Harbor.
“Tell the truth and stop the lies, Freddie Gray didn’t have to die!” chanted a few dozen demonstrators who gathered outside the Baltimore courthouse Wednesday morning.
The lone arrest came around 9:15 a.m., after protesters marched to the Inner Harbor, where groups of uniformed officers were posted on street corners. Police said they arrested Darius Rosebrough, 21, after he attempted to stop the free flow of traffic and claimed falsely to be struck by a motorist. The charges include second-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
Rosebrough is a community activist and hip-hop artist better known by the name Kwame Rose.
Police said an officer suffered minor injuries while assisting with the arrest.
City and police leaders said they were pleased with how the demonstrations went.
“Today’s actions were peaceful, respectful, and an example of democracy in action,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said outside police headquarters late Wednesday afternoon. “And it shows people what Baltimore is really about.”
Here he is blocking traffic, having just hit his hand on the hood of a car that he claimed to have hit him. Police are trying to move him out of the way of traffic and he moves back on them.
Here are the police announcing that he is also being charged with making a false statement.

Would that they all got arrested for making false statements. That would end the lies.

A close associate tells POLITICO that Donald Trump plans to sign a loyalty pledge Thursday that would bind him to endorse the Republican nominee, and would preclude a third-party run. Trump made the stunning decision, which he has long resisted, to avoid complications in getting listed on primary ballots, and to take away an attack line in the next debate, the associate said.
Trump, who has led the GOP field in poll after poll, has long viewed the threat of a third-party candidacy as priceless leverage – and even used that word when he refused to take such a pledge in the first debate, on Aug. 6.
Just as email-gate looked to be winding down, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned a person claiming to be a computer specialist has come forward with the stunning news that 32,000 emails from Hillary Clinton‘s private email account are up for sale. The price tag — a whopping $500,000!
Promising to give the trove of the former Secretary of State’s emails to the highest bidder, the specialist is showing subject lines as proof of what appear to be legitimate messages.
“Hillary or someone from her camp erased the outbox containing her emails, but forgot to erase the emails that were in her sent box,” an insider reveals to Radar of the Presidential contender’s latest nightmare.

Foreign secretary, in Tehran for reopening of British embassy, says countries have shared interest in tackling Isis and questions Iran’s true position on Israel
Britain will “tread carefully” as it rebuilds relations with Iran, but the countries need to work together to tackle problems like Islamic State, Philip Hammond has said.
The British foreign secretary – speaking from Tehran on Monday, following the reopening of Britain’s embassy in the city and ahead of a meeting with the Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani – said that, although relations had been improving, the countries had a “difficult history”.
But it was better for them to engage with each other, and in time Iran could play “a more measured and more responsible” role in the Middle East, he said.
Just rubbing his face in it.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley blasted the Black Lives Matter movement Wednesday for inflaming racial tensions that saw American cities such as Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, vandalized in the last year. Instead of rioting and screaming at police officers, activists should learn from the example set by black and white residents and officials in South Carolina, where an unarmed black man was killed by police and a hate-fueled shooting unfolded at a historically black church this year, said Haley in a sweeping speech on race and inequality at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
“Black lives do matter, and they have been disgracefully jeopardized by the movement that has laid waste to Ferguson and Baltimore,” Haley said of the social justice group that has spread around the country in the last year. “Most of the people who now live in terror because local police are too intimidated to do their jobs are black.”
The provocative remarks came as the Republican governor’s national political profile has been on the rise. Haley became more prominent after her leadership on removing the Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina State House after the racially motivated June 17 shooting at a Charleston church. Haley, the state’s first female and first minority chief executive and a potential vice presidential contender in 2016, is seen by many GOP officials as a draw for minorities who have voted in wide margins for Democrats in the last presidential election. But critics said a lack of diversity in her administration and her somewhat narrow view of racism betrays the idea that she is the new face of the Republican Party.
If one of us did this we’d be making arrangements for bail… Hillary gets to run for president.
Clinton, front-runner to be the Democratic candidate in the November 2016 presidential election, has faced steady criticism from political opponents since it emerged in March that she used a private set-up rather than a government-issued state.gov email address.
Clinton has maintained she did nothing wrong. She says she sent no information via email that was classified at the time, and received no material marked that way.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is examining Clinton’s server to see whether information was mishandled. No evidence has emerged suggesting Clinton’s email practices harmed national security.
A review last month by Reuters of previously released Clinton emails found 30 email threads that the State Department has marked to show they include information shared in confidence by foreign government officials, from prime ministers to spy chiefs.
U.S. government regulations examined by Reuters say this sort of information, whether written or spoken, must be classified from the start, and handled through secure, government-controlled channels.
The Clinton-Mitchell correspondence is one of 57 email threads found by Reuters in the latest batch of emails released on Monday that the State Department has marked as including the same type of information.
In all the 87 email threads examined by Reuters, the State Department has blanked out the confidential information in the public copies, adding the classification code “1.4(B)”, denoting foreign government information.

College and university historians in Kentucky say that a statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis in the state’s Capitol rotunda promotes “miseducation,” even after the addition of a plaque explaining the statue’s historical context.
In a letter addressed to Democrat House Speaker Greg Stumbo and other members of the Kentucky Legislature, 72 historians representing 16 Kentucky colleges and universities expressed their “unambiguous opinion … [that] the statue offers a visceral and potent miseducation,” KY Forward reported Tuesday.
“The Davis statue conveys a powerful message,” the letter claims. “In the Rotunda, he is elevated in public space, on display as a beacon of Kentucky’s highest ideals.”
The statue of Davis is one of five such likenesses displayed in the Rotunda, alongside Davis’ Civil War counterpart Abraham Lincoln (who, like Davis, was born in the state), prominent 19th century politician Henry Clay, surgical pioneer Ephraim McDowell, and vice president Alben Barkley.
I’m sure the timing was just a coincidence.
Planned Parenthood chapters in Iowa, Missouri and Montana received just over $1 million in federal grant funding Wednesday to help Obamacare customers sign up for coverage, even as Republicans in Congress battle to strip the women’s health provider of any federal funding at all amid raging controversy over its abortion practice.
The chapters were among 100 recipients of $67 million in so-called “navigator” grants doled out by the Obama administration Wednesday to nonprofits in 34 states that help people get covered under the Affordable Care Act.
Two thirds of the recipients had received grants in previous years, and a pair of the Planned Parenthood chapters — Planned Parenthood of the Heartland in Iowa and Intermountain Planned Parenthood in Montana — also received funding in 2013 and 2014.

Controversial former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal says she’s pregnant.
Dolezal, 37, is in her second trimester and expects to have a boy, she told celebrity gossip site TMZ.
Dolezal, who went to great lengths to portray herself as African-American, resigned her post as president of the NAACP’s Spokane, Wash., chapter earlier this year after her white parents revealed her true background.
She declined to identify the dad of her expected child.
Dolezal has previously said she has two sons.
One is a 13-year-old she had with ex-husband Kevin Moore. The other is a 21-year-old African-American who grew up as her adopted brother — but later gained legal emancipation from their parents. Dolezal was appointed his guardian.
