UPDATE TO THIS STORY
Loser continues to be a loser.
The Texas woman who garnered an unexpected national spotlight after tweeting that a Harris County deputy deserved to be executed was arrested in her home county on an assault warrant out of Houston. The arrest stems from a 2011 incident where she allegedly punched a former co-worker in the face causing bodily injury.
Montgomery County jail officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that Monica Foy was arrested on Tuesday evening for an arrest warrant out of Harris County. The warrant was for a 2011 charge of assault with bodily injury, a misdemeanor charge. She was held for several hours and then released on a $1,000 bond in the early morning hours.
I don’t think anyone anticipated he’d do that…

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley is organizing a protest outside of the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters over the decision to hold only six debates.
In an email to supporters with the subject line “Time to protest,” the O’Malley campaign said “it’s time to take it up a notch” and pressure the DNC to expand the number of debates by joining the protest of another group that is planning a Sept. 16 rally outside the committee’s headquarters in Washington.
“It’s important that we bring our call for more debates directly to the group that is restricting candidates’ ability to debate,” the email says. “It’s, frankly, undemocratic. Enough tweeting. Let’s take action.”
In recent weeks, O’Malley has been singularly focused on pressuring the DNC to expand the debate scheduled.

The White House has hired a Facebook employee to serve as its first director of product, a new position focusing on software like the “We The People” petition site.
Josh Miller, who announced the job move on his personal website, said that he expects to build off the White House’s existing digital efforts.
“The White House has many digital products — from WhiteHouse.gov to the We the People Petition site,” he said. “It’s a dream to be able to add to and improve this portfolio.
“These initiatives represent amazing progress, and there’s so much more good work to be done,” he continued. “I’m excited to apply what I’ve learned in the technology industry to the ideals of our democracy.”
Likely in retaliation for this incident last June.
He’s like Superman… only real.

In a bow to the huge U.S. Hispanic population and the Catholic Church’s advocacy of immigration, Pope Francis plans to give his Washington mass Sept. 23 in Spanish, according to Cardinal Donald William Wuerl.
“The mass is going to be in Spanish,” Wuerl said Wednesday while previewing the pope’s trip to reporters.
“It’s a recognition of how large the Hispanic population in the United States is,” said Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. “And he’s coming as the first pope from the New World and the predominant language in this hemisphere is Spanish,” added Wuerl of the Argentine-born pope.
Francis, meanwhile, will use his address to Congress to call for bipartisanship, something missing for several years as Republicans and President Obama have jockeyed for power. In that speech he will speak English. […]
The cardinal said that since Spanish is his “mother tongue,” Francis feels more comfortable speaking it. The non-Hispanic mass audience will be provided translations on Jumbotrons, he added.
The main problem is a lot of them are not “refugees,” they are ISIS operatives.
His name is Freddie Carlos Gray. No ‘e’. But when a person is just a vehicle for your political agenda, things like that don’t matter. The signs were constructed by People’s Power Assembly, a radical leftist organization that has been very active in the protests in Baltimore.
The judge did, however, chastise the State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby for her actions and protester pep rally tactics
A Baltimore judge has refused to dismiss charges against six police officers accused in the death of a black man who was in their custody.
During a hearing Wednesday, Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams denied a defense motion for the charges to be dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct on the part of State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.
The officers are facing charges in connection with the death of Freddie Gray. The 25-year-old Gray received a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody on April 12. He died a week later.
Dozens of protesters demonstrated outside the courthouse Wednesday morning, holding yellow signs with slogans including, “Stop racism now” and “Indict, convict, jail.” One banner said “Justice 4 Freddie Carlos Gray.”
But no influence of Black Lives Matter, I’m sure…
HOUSTON (KTRK) — Some disturbing graffiti is popping up around town, emojis showing a police officer and a gun.
We’ve seen them in at least four spots in the Washington Avenue area, and we’ve gotten reports of more than that.
As you might imagine, those in uniform say it’s incredibly disturbing to see this just days after a deputy was killed while pumping gas.
HPD Union President Ray Hunt said, “I can’t believe that there are people out there so heartless and so ruthless to put something on there before this deputy is even buried. It does nothing to help to help morale in the police department and does nothing to help the Goforth family.”
The police union has ordered 10,000 bracelets printed with the words ‘Pray for police.’ Officials are hoping to distribute the bracelets to the community next week.

While crafting herself a jail sentence.
Image was a paramount concern to Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, and her aides went to great lengths to warn their boss of potentially damaging reports, devise strategies to fight unflattering portrayals, and ply her with compliments after successful media appearances.
Clinton’s symbiotic, love-hate relationship with the press is hardly unique among power brokers in Washington, but dozens of her emails released this week portray an inner circle that was highly skilled at image control and ready to play the long game, building relationships with journalists and crafting a public persona that might serve her well beyond the secretary’s seat. Many of the same advisers from that era are now part of Clinton’s presidential campaign.
