Kentucky Man Shoots Down “Peeping Tom” Drone Over His House…

Drone Shooter

There are consequences to snoopin and poopin.

Via Daily Mail

A father has been arrested after shooting down an $1,800 drone that was reportedly hovering over his two sunbathing daughters.

William H. Merideth, 47, from Kentucky was charged with first-degree criminal mischief and first-degree wanton endangerment.

The owner of the drone claims he was only trying to take pictures of a friend’s house when Merideth shot at the device, sending it crashing into a field near his yard last weekend.

Sunday afternoon, the kids – my girls – were out on the back deck, and the neighbors were out in their yard,” Merideth told WDRD. ‘And they come in and said, “Dad, there’s a drone out here, flying over everybody’s yard.”

‘I went and got my shotgun and I said, “I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property,”‘ he added.

At that time, the drone was hovering over the house of a neighbor, Kim VanMater, who has a 16-year-old daughter who likes to lay out by the pool.

VanMeter said: ‘(The drone) was just hovering above our house and it stayed for a few moments and then my daughter finally waved and it took off.’

It then allegedly flew over the Merideths’ garden.

Mr Merideth said: ‘Within a minute or so, here it came. It was hovering over top of my property, and I shot it out of the sky. I didn’t shoot across the road, I didn’t shoot across my neighbor’s fences, I shot directly into the air.’

Four men were about to confront him after the drone was shot out of the sky, but he says they soon changed their minds when they saw his firearms.

‘I had my Glock on me and they started toward me and I told them, “If you cross my sidewalk, there’s gonna be another shooting,”‘ Mr. Merideth told the station.

The police arrested him soon afterwards.

Mothers Of Children Killed By Illegal Aliens Condemn Dem Luis Gutierrez, Obama Regime

Joshua Wilkerson, on the left, killed by Hermilio Moralez on the right. Joshua was just 18, his family called him a ‘joy to be around’.

Via Breitbart:

After Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) exploded with rage at Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies for daring to quote him as saying Kathryn Steinle’s death was a “little thing,” three mothers whose children were murdered by illegal aliens walked out of the hearing in disgust.

Now, those mothers want their voices to be heard.

Brought to Washington by Maria Espinoza’s The Remembrance Project, 13 family members, including the Steinle family, watched as Gutierrez attacked an expert witness testifying to the dangers that hundreds of sanctuary cities pose to Americans.

In exclusive statements to Breitbart News, Laura Wilkerson, Sabine Durden, and Mary Ann Mendoza condemned — in the strongest of terms — Gutierrez’s brutish behavior towards Vaughan.

Wilkerson led the walkout as soon as Gutierrez began to rage at Vaughan for quoting him as saying a woman’s death at the hands an illegal alien was a “little thing.” Her son, Joshua, pictured with murderer — and “DREAMer” Hermilio Moralez below — died under torture on November 16, 2010, after giving Moralez a ride home. Moralez then tied him up and set him on fire, later bragging in court his “killing skills took over.”

Wilkerson testified before another Senate committee on July 21, reading aloud the horrific autopsy while the audience wept. “This was our family’s 9/11 terrorist attack by a foreign invader, whether you want to recognize it or whether you do not,” Wilkerson had said. “This government continues to fail or even recognize that we have an issue. Americans are dying daily at the hands of criminals that we don’t even know are here.”

Illegal Alien Chews Off His Own Fingerprints In Attempt To Not Be Identified By Police…

Roberts Fingers

Not his first rodeo.

Via WPTV

A man is under arrest in Lee County, Florida, despite his attempts to chew off his own fingerprints in an attempt to not be identified.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office says detectives spotted a 2015 Mercedes which had been stolen and stopped the vehicle.

Detectives discovered that the driver, 20-year-old Kenzo Roberts, was using a fraudulent ID, had a concealed firearm, and possessed three fraudulent credit cards, according to Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

As Roberts was being detained in the back of the patrol vehicle, surveillance video shows him attempting to remove his own fingerprints by chewing them off and rubbing them against the cage.

The ploy wasn’t successful though, as a fingerprint scanner quickly identified Roberts.

LCSO says he has two felony warrants for his arrest out of Broward County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Roberts has been charged with three counts of possession of a counterfeit credit card, grand theft auto, possession of a concealed firearm, possession of similitude of a driver’s license, driving while license suspended, and false identification given to law enforcement.

Border Patrol was also contacted and found that Roberts was in the U.S. illegally.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) –
Memphis Police are investigating a scene where a police officer has been shot in the area of Cottonwood Road and Perkins Road.

The officer has been taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown. Memphis Police said the officer was conducting a traffic stop at the time and was shot by the occupant of the vehicle.

Update:

Via CNN:

A manhunt is underway for a suspect who fatally shot a police officer during a traffic stop in Tennessee, authorities said Sunday.

Memphis Police Officer Sean Bolton, 33, was shot multiple times Saturday night by a person who was in the car he pulled over, police said.

The assailant remains at large, Memphis police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph said.

A civilian used the officer’s radio to notify police about the shooting, she said.

Bolton, who joined the force in October 2010, was taken to hospital in critical condition. He later died.

This is the third time a Memphis police officer has been killed in the past four years, Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong said.

“It doesn’t get any easier. This is a very difficult time, not only for me as director, but for all the officers you see standing behind me,” he told reporters early Sunday morning.

Hero of the Day: Kentucky police officer John Nissen!

He went above and beyond for a grief stricken driver named Barbie Henderson.

While driving, Barbie got word of her sister’s death and pulled over to the side of the road. She was too distraught to drive and didn’t know what to do so she called 911.

That’s when officer Nissen came on the scene and asked if he could sit and talk with her.

Nissen says: “I turned the air vents towards her – it was over 90 degrees that day – held her hand, and she cried on my shoulder. I had her take sips of water.”

He stayed with her for an hour until another family member could come and get her home safely.

When Barbie’s other sister, Shonda, arrived, she was so amazed by the officer’s kindness that she took a photo of the two and sent it to the Hillview Kentucky Police Facebook Page.

She wrote:
“Officer Nissen was more than an officer yesterday. He was a person with a heart to understand this was a lady who just lost her sister. From there on he took care of my sister … What an awesome guy!!!!”

Hilarious: Three Girls ‘Catfished’ ISIS For Travel Money…

If you’re low on funds for that big vacation, you could always ask to borrow money, make a Kickstarter campaign … or swindle a couple of Islamic State recruiters. It may not be the safest way to make money, but that’s what three girls from Chechnya, a Russian republic in southeastern Europe, did.

The Chechen girls are under investigation for fraud after they allegedly scammed ISIS members into giving them money on the pretense that they would use it to travel from their homeland to Syria. The ladies got away with $3,300 before being discovered, according to RT News.
The ISIS members allegedly reached out to the girls’ social media accounts, asking the girls to join the militant cause. The young women kept in contact with the ISIS members and even sent fake pictures to string them along.

DNC Assigns Full-Time Staffer To Trump…

Trump is on their radar screen, and definitely under their skin…

Via The Hill

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has appointed a full-time staffer to handle all DNC responses to Donald Trump — a signal the group is now treating Trump as a serious contender for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination.

The employee is responsible for countering Trump’s media statements and working against his Oval Office bid, The Guardian said Saturday.

The DNC is only devoting its human resources to campaigns it considers especially threatening next election cycle.

The organization is currently targeting nine out of the 17 GOP presidential contenders with full-time opposition staffers.

The DNC’s Trump watchdog also monitors New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the report added.

Next year’s GOP presidential fields is one of the most crowded in recent memory.

The DNC is reportedly using full-time staffers for Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.), Govs. John Kasich (Ohio) and Scott Walker (Wis.) and former Govs. Jeb Bush (Fla.) and Rick Perry (Texas), in addition to Christie and Trump.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Gov. Bobby Jindal (La.), former Govs. Mike Huckabee (Ark.), George Pataki (N.Y.) and Jim Gilmore (Va.), former Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) and private citizens Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are not getting the same attention.

Via The Federalist:

A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.

Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.

Gun Used By Islamic Terrorist In Garland Attack Was A ‘Fast And Furious’ Gun

Via Chicago Tribune:

Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.

At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi’s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process.

Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.

What Soofi could not have known was that Lone Wolf was at the center of a federal sting operation known as Fast and Furious, targeting Mexican drug lords and traffickers. The idea of the secret program was to allow Lone Wolf to sell illegal weapons to criminals and straw purchasers, and track the guns back to large smuggling networks and drug cartels.

Nutty Professor: Rutgers Prof Who Said US Worse Than ISIS Has History Of Bizarre Statements

And despite that history (or because of that history?), she’s still teaching.

Via Fox News:

A Rutgers University professor who is under fire for saying that the U.S. is “more brutal” than ISIS has used racial slurs against white men, attacked a leading advocate against female genital mutilation and even led a successful protest last year to stop former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice from speaking to students.

Deepa Kumar, associate professor of journalism and media studies at New Jersey’s main public university, made news recently by tweeting: “Yes ISIS is brutal, but US is more so, 1.3 million killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.” But that tweet, sent in March but only brought to prominent attention after it was noticed by the site SoCawlege.com, is not Kumar’s first brush with digital bigotry.

“Okay, I’m sold on using the term ‘douchebag’ to describe rich, white entitled males and their misogynistic, racist behavior!” Kumar wrote in a Facebook endorsement of an online article last fall.

Ohio State Marching Band Had Book Of Songs Including One That Made Fun Of Holocaust Victims…

Ohio State

Lost in the shuffle over comments made by Huckabee comparing the Iran deal to leading Israelis to the doors of the oven.

Via Daily Mail

Ohio State University’s celebrated marching band had a shocking unofficial song that made fun of Holocaust victims, it has been revealed.

The parody tune written by members of the controversy-riddled band included references to furnaces used in Nazi concentration camps and the train cars used to transport Jews to their deaths.

The Holocaust song, called ‘Goodbye Kramer,’ also had lines about soldiers from the Third Reich ‘searching for people livin’ in their neighbor’s attic,’ and a ‘small town Jew…who took the cattle train to you know where.’

The parody tune was written so it could be sung to Journey’s hit ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.

The lyrics were contained in a 2012 version of an unofficial band songbook, according to an article by The Wall Street Journal.

Other versions of the songbook had circulated privately among band members over the years, including 2006 and 2010 versions.

An independent investigation of the marching band revealed the existence of the song last year but not the lyrics.

US-Trained Rebels Fighting ISIS Are Failing Miserably

Typical Obama regime fail, at $4 million a rebel. Meanwhile, he’s letting his buddy Erdogan bomb the Kurds.

Via NY Post:

Has anyone seen the US-trained rebels who were dispatched from Turkey to battle ISIS in northern Syria?

The Obama administration certainly hasn’t — though it spent $4 million apiece to get these men battle-ready.

In fact, the administration was the last to learn that an al Qaeda affiliate had captured the group’s leader and several of his soldiers right after they entered Syria.

Nadeem al-Hassan is the leader of Division 30, a unit of rebels recruited under Washington’s Train and Equip Program to battle ISIS in Syria. The Nusra Front, al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, ambushed him and six of his soldiers Thursday.

Even after Reuters reported the grim news, the State Department and Pentagon denied it. Then Division 30 confirmed the capture and demanded the men’s release.

A Friday attack on Division 30’s headquarters killed another five of its members.

Such are the fruits of a program that aimed to train 5,000 rebels as part of Obama’s strategy of recruiting Syrian boots on the ground to take on the Islamic State.

Puerto Rico Is The New Greece, Will Default…

Puerto Rico will miss a payment on debt due Aug. 1, the governor’s chief of staff said on Friday, an event that will be considered a default by investors as the commonwealth lurches towards what could be one of the largest U.S. municipal debt restructurings in history.

The missed payment will mark the first default by the commonwealth and shows the depth of the island’s economic and cashflow problems. Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla shocked investors in June when he said the island’s debt, totaling $72 billion, was unpayable and required restructuring.

According to a 2014 bond offering statement, Puerto Rico has never defaulted on the payment of principal or interest of debt.

“Tomorrow is Aug. 1 and we don’t have the money,” Victor Suarez, chief of staff for Puerto Rico’s governor, told journalists in San Juan, referring to a $58 million payment due on Public Finance Corporation (PFC) bonds.

“The PFC payment will not be made this weekend,” Suarez said. “It was not consigned.”

Chris Christie Borrows McCain’s Town Hall Playbook For NH…

Christie will get stuck and not make it out of the starting gate.

Via CSM

In the summer of 1999, John McCain didn’t have many big names backing his campaign for president. He didn’t have much money, either, and even resorted at one point to giving away ice cream to drum up a decent-size crowd.

Enter the town hall.

Driven to “desperation,” McCain decided to meet as many people as possible at as many of the Q&A events as he could. It took months for the strategy to pay dividends, but when it did, McCain was packing ’em in.
Recommended: How much do you know about Jeb Bush? Take our quiz.

“It was just jammed,” McCain said of one town hall, held at a fire house at 8 a.m. “That people would get up real early in the morning to go to a town hall with me — that was the first real indication that we had some momentum.”

That momentum turned into a victory of 19 percentage points over George W. Bush in the New Hampshire primary. He lost the 2000 nomination to Bush but later rode the same strategy to a victory in the state’s 2008 primary — his first on the way to becoming the GOP nominee that year.[…]

“For better or worse, the curse of McCain is he set the standards for how you win in New Hampshire,” said Steve Duprey, a top McCain adviser and Republican National Committee member from New Hampshire.

None of the 17 candidates in the GOP field may be following the McCain playbook as closely as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who flew to New Hampshire the day he announced his candidacy. He’s held seven town halls since his announcement and 15 so far this year as well as other public events.

Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez Can’t Handle The Heat, Melts Down After His Words Are Used Against Him During Sanctuary City Testimony…

Luis trying to give a lecture on exploitation.

Via BPR

Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez, an illegal-immigration activist, proved he can’t handle the truth as he became completely unhinged when confronted with his own words by an immigration expert.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday about the dangers of “sanctuary city” policies.

When Gutierrez took the floor he accused Vaughan of not being informed and said she was “exploiting” the murder of Kate Steinle, the young woman who was murdered by a 5-time-deported illegal criminal, to make a buck.

Vaughan had angered Gutierrez by repeatedly referencing a remark he had made about Steinle’s murder. Gutierrez had told Telemundo during an interview on July 16 (emphasis added), “Every time a little thing like this happens, [Republicans] use the most extreme example to say it must be eliminated.”

Gutierrez’s testimony offered the Steinle family a few platitudes about his “sympathies,” but he was only able to keep it together for a short while.

“Apparently people have decided to besmirch people’s reputation, and take their words, and exploit the death of a beautiful young American woman… But don’t exploit a young woman’s death in order to receive a paycheck to put food on your table,” Gutierrez said.
