Houston Police Officer Escapes Attempted Ambush, Shoots One Suspect

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 8.57.12 PM

Good thing this cop had great instincts. He was wearing his uniform, so even though he was in his private vehicle, he was identifiable as a cop.

HOUSTON – A group of suspects targeted the wrong person to ambush after one of them was shot by a Houston police officer they were following on the way home late Thursday.

According to the Houston Police Department, it started at 11:30 p.m. when the 34-year veteran officer was heading home in his personal vehicle from a second job and noticed he was being followed as he drove down Woodhead Street in the Montrose area.

The officer turned onto Indiana Street to see if the car would keep going, but it didn’t. The suspect vehicle stopped and one male got out with a gun in hand. The suspect started toward the officer, who happened to still be in uniform.

The officer got out of his car and repeatedly identified himself as a police officer and ordered the suspect to stop. The suspect ignored the command and pointed his gun at the officer.

“At that point in time, a rear passenger got out and began running toward the sergeant as he went under street light he had arm extended and was shooting pistol directly at the sergeant,” Kese Smith, with HPD, said.

Obama Still Manages To Politicize Visit With Roseburg Families, While ‘Not Politicizing’

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 6.37.18 PM

So he wasn’t going to mention politics, but then does anyway. Way to go, champ!

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — The public must “come together” to figure out how to keep deadly mass shootings from happening, President Barack Obama said Friday. But he emerged from a private meeting with family of the victims of last week’s shooting in Oregon to declare: “Today is about the families.”

Addressing reporters briefly after the approximately hourlong meeting, Obama said occasions like these always remind him that any child or parent or family member could suffer such a loss.

Immediately after a gunman killed eight students and a teacher at a community college last week, a visibly angry Obama said thoughts and prayers are no longer enough in the aftermath and that the nation’s gun laws needed to be changed. He pledged to “politicize” the issue.

Clinton Not Only Received CIA Source Name, But Forwarded It Over Unsecure Email

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 6.31.28 PM

The information was inherently classified. Can we say Valerie Plame, folks? I knew we could…

Via Yahoo:

On March 18, 2011, Sidney Blumenthal — Clinton’s longtime friend and political adviser — sent the then secretary of state an email to her private account that contained apparently highly sensitive information he had received from Tyler Drumheller, a former top CIA official with whom Blumenthal at the time had a business relationship.

“Tyler spoke to a colleague currently at CIA, who told him the agency had been dependent for intelligence from [redacted due to sources and methods],” the email states, according to Gowdy’s letter.

The redacted information was “the name of a human source,” Gowdy wrote to his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, and was therefore “some of the most protected information in our intelligence community.”

“Armed with that information, Secretary Clinton forwarded the email to a colleague — debunking her claim that she never sent any classified information from her private email address,” wrote Gowdy in a letter to Cummings.

Clinton has repeatedly said she never sent or received classified information on her private email server “that was marked classified at the time that it was sent or received.” But the FBI, at the request of the inspectors general for the intelligence community and the State Department, is investigating the handling of classified information on the private server.

And while there is nothing that indicates that the email from Blumenthal (who was not a government employee) was marked classified at the time Clinton received it, the sensitive nature of its contents should have been a red flag and never should have been passed along, according to a former veteran CIA officer.

“She is exposing the name of a guy who has a clandestine relationship with the CIA on her private, unprotected server,” said John Maguire, who served for years as one of the CIA’s top Mideast officers.

Hilarious: Top Clinton Ally Finds Out You Never Know Who May Be Listening When You Rant About 2016 On A Train…

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 6.04.10 PM

Hahahahaha, that’s when you get real honesty.

Via Daily Beast:

This morning on Amtrak, Lanny Davis had a lot of feelings about 2016 and inadvertently decided to share them with the 6:55 a.m. train—which included two political reporters—as it zipped from D.C. to New York City.

The DC power lawyer and his traveling companions covered a lot of ground- whether Bernie Sanders is truly a Socialist (no), whether Joe Biden is a threat (he’s seen as a “buffoon”) whether Republican Carly Fiorina is nasty (yes)—as they chatted noisily and candidly about the ins and outs of the 2016 presidential race.

(Their chat also provided valuable insight for The Daily Beast and TownHall’s Guy Benson—who sat across the aisle from them.)

Benson, who first spotted Davis and his cohorts and caught the first part of their conversation noted Davis had sharp words for the Democratic-Socialist Senator from Vermont, calling him a “flip-flopper” on guns and a “nut.”

“There’s no way he can be nominated, ever,” said Davis, who sported a patterned tie and dapper pocket square for his morning train commute.

On Biden, Davis was confident the vice president would 1) enter the presidential race and 2) have no success. He cited Biden’s third-place status as evidence of that latter point, said Biden is seen as a “buffoon,” and said Clinton’s numbers were at “the bottom of the bottom.”

Here Are Threatening Messages Received By Irving Officials After Media Hyped ‘Ahmed The Clock Kid’ Hoax

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 5.43.28 PM

These aren’t even the worst of them, apparently.

Via The Blaze:

Officials in Irving, Texas, released about 14 pages of threatening, vulgar emails from people fuming over the incident involving local teen Ahmed Mohamed, who was put in handcuffs last month when his homemade clock was treated as a possible hoax bomb.

One man who claimed to be with a group that provides emergency air transportation wrote, “All employees of Irving ISD and the Irving PD and their immediate family members are banned from our aircraft,” adding that instead ”our members will watch your child die bleeding and convulsing on the Love Field tarmac.”

KTVT-TV said Irving police have stepped up patrols over the chilling emails, and Mayor Beth Van Duyne told the station off camera that the messages released Thursday aren’t the worst of them.

Breaking: Hillary Meets With Cop-Hating #BlackLivesMatter Radicals, Calls Racism ‘America’s Original Sin’

Comes out saying this:
Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 7.20.45 PM

Apparently, Hillary Clinton has forgotten or doesn’t care BLM chanting for the death of police and supporters/members actually shooting police officers. She apparently missed DeRay McKesson, that’s the guy in the ridiculous blue vest in the middle of the picture, and his class at Yale, ‘In Defense of Looting’.

America is apparently specially evil and created racism, according to Hillary Clinton. Notice how she went even a step beyond what they were asking her to say, changing ‘cardinal’ to ‘original’, an astonishing comment, even in a blatantly pandering attempt.

This is what Hillary Clinton is championing. God help us all.

Boehner Plotting To Stay Till December, Conservatives Working On Plan To Remove Him…

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 1.48.49 PM

Better have someone coming in that can take back the reins.

Via Breitbart:

Some on Capitol Hill believe that House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is going to attempt to remain in his position through mid-December.

The election to replace outgoing Boehner was unexpectedly and indefinitely postponed Thursday after front-runner and current Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) pulled out of the race.

Boehner has said that he plans to stay on as Speaker until a new Speaker is elected. That is a reversal from his previous decision to resign from Congress and the Speakership on Oct. 30.

If Boehner tries to stay in office past Oct. 30, his previously scheduled resignation date, it’s likely that conservatives who put together a plan that led to his resignation will pull the trigger on a move that would forcibly remove the Speaker from office. Sources close to the effort—which hinges around a motion to vacate the chair, a fancy term for removing Boehner as Speaker of the House immediately—confirm to Breitbart News they will likely forcibly remove Boehner if he tries anything unsavory in the next few weeks.

Slime Of The Day: Odious ‘Talking Points Memo’ Editor Josh Marshall Attacks Grieving People Of Roseburg

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 5.11.02 PM

Here’s some of the pictures and video from the protest.

How dare these people have a problem with President Obama specifically saying that he was politicizing this tragedy to push his gun control agenda? How dare they question the royal presence before he goes off to his fundraiser in Seattle?

Apparently, not believing what Josh Marshall demands you believe makes you pro-Massacre to the ver-intolerant Left. Never mind that these are the people who have suffered a terrific loss, who have lost friends, neighbors and maybe even family members.

But once again, it shows what leftists are about, totalitarian thought control.

Congratulations, Josh Marshall, you win Slime of the Day!

Martin O’Malley: Democratic Debate Schedule Shows Party’s Fear

Gov. O'Malley

Major meltdown coming when she goes to prison.

Via The Hill:

Former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-Md.) said on Friday that the Democratic presidential debate schedule exposes the party’s unease about Hillary Clinton.

“It would appear to me that they’re trying to circle the wagons around this year’s inevitable front-runner,” he said of Clinton’s presidential campaign. “I think it shows a lot of fear about the future.”

Playing off “gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s “fear and loathing” on the campaign trail theme, CNN asked O’Malley what he thought the late author would think of 2016 race. “He’d probably say the Democratic Party is hurting itself very badly by waiting so long to start its debates.”

O’Malley has been critical of the Democratic Party for both refusing to add debates to its schedule and for waiting until October to have its first one. The debate will be broadcast from Las Vegas Tuesday on CNN.

Rolling Stone: No Such Thing As “Real Hillary”


But she’s a real person!

Via Rolling Stone:

In the last day, Hillary Clinton announced her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal that she will likely claim she only championed as part of her duties as secretary of state and that, in reality, she just as likely helped to create. She probably opposes it as strongly as she did NAFTA, which her husband created, and which she and Barack Obama campaigned against in 2008 and then proceeded to do nothing about.

This is a habit. She probably is doing this because, in spite of a career in which neoliberalism got her this far, Bernie Sanders is starting to eat her lunch among labor voters, progressives and anyone who is not a big-money donor. You know, the people who vastly outnumber the latter and do things en masse, like vote.

Google Guy Startup Trying To Put Hillary In The White House…

Via QZ:

An under-the-radar startup funded by billionaire Eric Schmidt has become a major technology vendor for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, underscoring the bonds between Silicon Valley and Democratic politics.

The Groundwork, according to Democratic campaign operatives and technologists, is part of efforts by Schmidt—the executive chairman of Google parent-company Alphabet—to ensure that Clinton has the engineering talent needed to win the election. And it is one of a series of quiet investments by Schmidt that recognize how modern political campaigns are run, with data analytics and digital outreach as vital ingredients that allow candidates to find, court, and turn out critical voter blocs.

A District man was cited by police Friday for flying a drone near the Washington Monument and landing it on the Ellipse adjacent to the White House, authorities said.

Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Park Police, said the incident occurred about 1:30 a.m. Friday. She said police seized the drone and gave the suspect a criminal citation. A statement identified the suspect as Howard Solomon III of the District. His age was not provided.

Authorities had initially said that two people were cited, but the statement issued later Friday lists only one person charged. The person was not arrested but will have to appear in court.

World’s Most Delusional Beta Male: “Russian Campaign In Syria A Sign Putin’s Weakness”

He’s completely out of his mind…

Via Fox News Latino:

U.S. President Barack Obama suggested that Russian airstrikes in Syria are a sign of the growing weakness of Russian leader Vladimir Putin in an interview on CBS News, of which an excerpt was released Friday.

Obama questioned whether Putin is defying U.S. leadership in the Middle East with his air attacks on Syria, which he described as an attempt to support at all costs a tottering Bashar al-Assad regime after four years of civil war.

“When I came into office…Syria was Russia’s only ally in the region,” Obama said in the interview, the complete version of which will air this Sunday.

“And today, rather than being able to count on their support and maintain the base they had in Syria, which they’ve had for a long time. Mr. Putin now is devoting – his own troops, his own military, just to barely hold together by a thread his sole ally,” he said.

Russia Says It Has Killed 300 Militants In Latest Raid…

G20 Leaders Meet In St. Petersburg For The Summit

Via Reuters:

Russia’s air force hit 60 Islamic State targets in Syria over the past 24 hours and killed around 300 militants, the Defense Ministry said on Friday, in Moscow’s most intense raids yet since it first launched strikes on Syria 10 days ago.

In the previous updates, the Moscow had been reporting hitting about 10 targets daily. The increased pace of attacks was aimed at preventing militants from re-grouping and dispersing in populated areas, the ministry said.

The ministry said in a statement that air force jets used KAB-500 precision guided bombs to destroy a headquarters of the Liwa al-Haqq militant group in Syria’s Raqqa province.

The ministry, citing intercepted radio communications, said the raid killed two senior Islamic State field commanders and some 200 militants there.

Liwa al-Haqq is not connected to Islamic State, so it was not clear what the two field commanders were doing at the group’s base.

Democrat Posts Sophomoric Ad On Craigslist Advertising For New GOP Speaker Job


Via PJMedia:

A California Democrat took out an ad on Craigslist today to give House Republicans a hand in finding a new Speaker of the House.

Rep. Mark Takano posted the ad on the government jobs board after Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) dropped out of the race.

“It seems like we’re having a hard time finding the next Speaker, so I created a Craigslist ad to boost our search,” Takano tweeted.

The ad takes a stab at McCarthy’s quote on the Select Committee on Benghazi and Hillary Clinton’s tanking poll numbers.
