Overnight Open Thread: Police Officer Thanks Young McDonald’s Employee In Wolf Point, MT For Kindness…

Wolf Point

There is still hope for the younger generation.

Via KRTV:

Former Roosevelt County Deputy Sheriff and current Fort Peck Tribes Division of Drug Enforcement Investigator had a “run in” with a very caring young man today.

Investigator Clay McGeshick posted on Facebook today:

Just went through the drive thru at McDonald’s, the young man at the first window realized I was a cop, He said ” Sir you don’t have to pay for your meal, I got it.”

It caught me off guard. I told him thank you for being generous and he just made my day, but I can’t take free stuff. I told him to use the money for a tip, he smiled. After getting my food, I went and spoke to a manager and told them they need to give this young man a raise and keep him on board.

The Manager advised he was new and she really appreciated me coming to her and giving a shout out to this young man.

All I got was his first name [Marcus]……with all the hatred toward LE [Law Enforcement] these days, it’s good to see a young man not being affected by it. So if you go to McDonald’s today and you see this young man at the first Drive in window, be nice to him!”

Democrats Move Quickly To Nominate Tim Kaine ‘By Acclamation’ Rather Than Vote, To Cover Protests

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 10.59.35 PM

DNC=North Korea.

PHILADELPHIA — Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine is now officially the Democratic vice presidential nominee, but party officials intentionally rushed the formal proceedings here at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday to avoid the boos and protests of Bernie Sanders supporters.

“The chair will entertain a motion to suspend the rules and nominate Tim Kaine by acclamation as the vice presidential candidate of the Democratic Party,” said Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge, who took over as chairman of the Democratic National Convention after the ouster of Debbie Wasserman Schultz this week. “Is there a second?”

“All in favor of the motion to suspend the rules and nominate by acclamation Tim Kaine as the Democratic party’s vice presidential candidate, please say aye,” Fudge said to both applause and protests.

After having deemed the measure passed, Fudge continued talking as some in the crowd could be heard protesting and demanding an actual roll call vote of all the delegates. The music inside the convention hall was then turned up to drown out the protests.

Yup, This Is Unity: Bernie Sanders Leaves The Democratic Party

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 10.23.38 PM

Well, in truth, he never really was one. So what was the point in endorsing Hilary?

Via Heatst:

The nomination was barely sealed up at the Democratic National Convention before Bernie Sanders, who had campaigned against Hillary Clinton for the party’s nod, went back to being an Independent.

Sanders, who considers himself, officially, an Independent in Congress because his views lean further left than the Democratic party’s platform, caucuses with Democrats. But until declaring an intention to run for the presidency in 2015, he had rarely, if ever, identified as a member of the Democratic Party (he’s been in politics since 1979).

And now, despite pleading with his base to support Hillary, even though they’re concerned that she’s too moderate, Sanders will return to Vermont and to his seat in the Senate, and he’ll do it with no official party affiliation.

This is what democracy looks like! Or a sultanate…

Via Fox News:

Turkey’s government has decided to close down dozens of media outlets, including 45 newspapers and 16 television stations in the wake of a failed military coup, the country’s state-run news agency reported Wednesday.

CNN Turk reported that 130 media organizations had been shuttered in a widening crackdown by Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government. The list also inlcuded 23 radio stations, three news agencies and 15 magazines. Many of those targeted were regional media outlets as well as several organizations that had already been seized by the state over alleged links to Fethullah Gulen, the U.S.-based cleric accused of being behind the failed uprising.
The state-run Anadolu Agency also reported that close to 1,700 military officers have been formally discharged.

In all, nearly 16,000 people have been detained for questioning over suspected links to the coup attempt, and about half have been arrested to face trial, Interior Minister Efkan Ala said Wednesday.

More On DNC Machinations: It’s All About The Money…

“A lot of people unfortunately get sick”. Slime.

Via Free Beacon:

Major Democratic Party donors enjoy serious perks for their big contributions, emails from the Democratic National Committee reveal that are part of the recent Wikileaks dump.

ABC reporter Brian Ross detailed on Wednesday some of these privileges awaiting high dollar Democratic donors in Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention, which have been exposed after Wikileaks released approximately 20,000 DNC emails.

“A price for everything, including what it costs for a private dinner with Hillary Clinton. It’s all about the money,” Ross said. “From the welcoming parties with a woman dancer in a bubble in the middle of a fountain at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the nighttime cruises to the luxury suites at the convention center and the private parties with gourmet scrambled eggs and caviar.”

Ross also reported that a private dinner with Clinton costs $200,000.

Ross described how DNC finance director Jordan Kaplan had a bigger donor moved next to President Obama at an event and a cancer patient moved to a less prominent seat.

“Another email describes how a donor battling cancer lost his coveted seat at a presidential roundtable. An even bigger donor bumped him, ‘please move him next to the president.’ The DNC finance director Jordan Kaplan wrote with no sympathy of the cancer patient, ‘a lot of people unfortunately get sick.’”

DNC Lawyers Now Implicated in Email Leaks as Giving ‘Pro-Hillary’ Advice

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 9.24.44 PM

A clear conflict of interest.

Via Law Newz:

A high profile law firm is now caught up in the DNC WikiLeaks mess. A group of Bernie Sanders supporters filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, and the now-former chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz. In a letter sent Monday, they are demanding that attorneys from Perkins Coie LLP be removed from the case due to a conflict of interest. New emails discovered through the WikiLeaks dump show that attorneys from the law firm have given strategy advice to hurt Sanders, well before he dropped out. To add fuel to their claim, they’ve now discovered that attorneys from Perkins Coie are representing both the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign.

The lawsuit, which was actually filed before the leaks, claims that the DNC “actively concealed its bias” from its donors and supporters backing Bernie Sanders. The plaintiffs say the recent emails only give them more evidence that the Democratic National Committee was on board with Hillary Clinton from the start.

Internal emails discovered through WikiLeaks show that Perkins Coie attorneys advised the DNC on how to fight allegations from Bernie Sanders. This spring, the Sanders campaign accused Hillary Clinton of ‘laundering’ money through the Clinton Victory Fund. Marc Elias, who serves as the Clinton campaign’s general counsel and also a partner at Perkins Coie, fired off an email to DNC staff stating:

They don’t care who they hurt in pursuit of their agenda.

Via IJR:

Much about the internal operations of the Democratic National Committee has been revealed this week in light of the Wikileaks email drops, which resulted in the ousting of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. But of particular interest to North Carolinians are the committee’s eye-opening communications over the issue of the state’s controversial HB2 “bathroom bill.”

In response to North Carolina Democratic Party Comms Director Dave Miranda forwarding an email to the DNC regarding reports that the state had lost jobs and millions in revenue as a result of the passage of HB2, one DNC official replied, “Awesome.”

Young Single Mother In Chicago Fatally Shot Hours After Moving Into a New Apartment On Son’s 5th Birthday…

Africa Bass

Not enough time for the DNC to invite her mother to speak at the convention.

Via WLSTV:

A young mother of two was shot to death on her son’s 5th birthday in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood. The 23-year-old woman’s family identified her as Africa Bass.

“What do I say to my nephew? I can’t. My nephew is always going to remember that. His mama died on his birthday. You can’t forget that,” said Jovanna Jones, Bass’ sister, as tears streamed down her face.

Police said she was walking in the 8700-block of South Burley Avenue around 12:05 a.m. Wednesday when someone in a black SUV shot her in the back. Her aunt, Sade Wilson, was walking with her through the Germano Millgate Apartments when she was shot. She said Bass was also shot in the chest.

“The shots came and we started running. She turned around like, ‘Sade, I’m hit,’ and she just hit the floor. She was just squeezing my hand… My niece don’t do nothing,” Wilson said, sobbing.

Bass was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Bass moved from the Roseland neighborhood to the South Chicago neighborhood just hours before she was killed, her family said. They can’t understand why this happened to her.

“Her little thing was tough love. Her little thing was tough love because she always spoke her mind. Whether nobody liked it or not, she was going to say it,” Jovanna Jones said.

“Who would do this to my baby? When is it going to stop? When is it going to stop? Y’all done killed something very special to me. Very special,” said Sheila Jones, Bass’ mother.

Bass is also survived by her 2-year-old daughter. Her family said Bass worked at a Walmart in the south suburbs.

Neighbors who did not want to go on camera said Bass was an innocent victim caught in the middle of gang retaliation. They also said the intended target, who lives in the complex, apparently had minor injuries to his hand.

“It’s time for everybody in America to wake up. This **** is over. Whatever you’re trying to accomplish, let it go. Let it go,” Sheila Jones said.

Mother Of Orlando Shooting Victim Speaks At DNC: “The Weapon That Murdered My Son Shoots 30 Bullets A Minute”

No, my dear, the weapon doesn’t have any greater capacity than any other gun. One bullet per trigger pull. “The weapon” didn’t murder your son, the Islamic terrorist did.

How does the DNC actually talk about an Islamic terrorist massacre without even mentioning that it is an Islamic terrorist massacre? By turning it into a cause for gun control?

More Shady White House Ties In DNC Emails…

hillary and obama hug

Via Daily Caller:

New details have emerged about a possible “pay-to-play” scheme that surfaced in the Democratic National Committee documents released by Wikileaks last week.

The Democratic National Committee’s national finance director sent a White House official who handles personnel matters a list of Democratic donors that the DNC hand-picked for appointments to federal boards and commissions.

The Daily Caller reported earlier this week that Jordan Kaplan, the DNC finance director, sought guidance from his colleagues on what donors to choose for federal appointments. Names were collected, and a spreadsheet entitled “Boards and Commissions” was created.

Following up on that report, OpenSecrets, the blog of the Center for Responsive Politics, which monitors political spending, found an email from Kaplan to Amanda Moose, a special assistant to the President for presidential personnel, which appears to show coordination about the appointments between the DNC and the White House.

Marilyn Mosby Claimed ‘Bias’ From Police Hurt Cases, But Judge Admonished Her Team For Withholding Exculpatory Evidence

The decision whether to have a bench trial (by judge) or a jury trial is completely up to the defendant, the prosecutor has no say in it. She also claimed that the facts that she got indictments showed the worth of her case. Even non-lawyers know the expression ‘prosecutors can even indict a ham sandwich’, meaning indictments really don’t show the worth of case.

Via Daily Caller:

In her heated remarks, [Marilyn] Mosby slammed members of the Baltimore police department investigative team. She also complained that prosecutors were not granted any say on whether the officers would be tried by a jury or by Williams, who is black.

“What we realized very early on in this case is that police investigating police…was problematic,” Mosby shouted.

“There was a reluctance and an obvious bias that was consistently exemplified, not by the entire Baltimore police department, but by individuals within the Baltimore police department at every stage of the investigation.”

She claimed that police investigators refused to conduct search warrants. Some conducted counter-investigations of their own, she alleged.

What she did not mention is that Williams faulted Mosby’s team for failing to turn over numerous pieces of evidence that supported the six defendants.

Black Vietnam War Veteran Shot For Being A Trump Supporter

Thankfully, he should make a full recovery.

CLEVELAND – A discussion over the upcoming presidential election ended with a Cleveland man in the hospital, shot in the thigh, and the gunman on the loose.

Paul Jones, Jr., 60, was at his neighborhood bar Winston’s Place near E. 131st Street and Miles Avenue around 6 p.m. Monday, talking politics with a friend.

Jones, an Air Force Vietnam War veteran, just happens to be a staunch Donald Trump supporter — something that didn’t sit well with a man nearby.

“He butted in the conversation,” Jones said, speaking from his hospital bed. “The conversation wasn’t directed at him or to him.”

It escalated from there in a way no one ever imagined.

The man got so upset, he went out to his car — and came back with a gun.

One of the Normandy church murderers was a convicted terrorist who was meant to be living with his parents with an electronic tag on his ankle, according to security sources.

The astonishing revelation – made to the French TV news channel I-Tele – well cause further outrage in a country devastated by constant security failings.

Two attackers were shot dead by police commandos during the siege at Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray this morning, and their identities are already known to the authorities.

One, who lived close to the church, is said to have left for Syria in 2015 to try and join Islamic State, but he was arrested in Turkey.

He was jailed for terrorist offences following a short trial in France, before being released on March 2nd this year.

No, Black Lives Don’t Matter To Bill And Hillary, Especially Haitian Lives…

Via Breitbart:

Despite what the Mothers of the Movement believe, black lives don’t matter to Bill and Hillary Clinton. Just ask the Haitians who’ve spent years trashing the Clinton’s for screwing them over and turning the tragic earthquake that rocked the tiny Caribbean country in 2010 into a lucrative venture for their closest allies.

Indeed, in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti — while 316,000 lifeless bodies lay buried under rubble, and while 300,000 Haitians suffered from injuries, with another 1.3 million displaced — Hillary Clinton’s family and monied cronies cashed in on the back of the tragedy-stricken Caribbean country.

Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, landed a lucrative and historically rare Haitian “gold exploitation permit,” while Clinton Foundation donors, including Digicel mobile phone company founder Denis O’Brien, were winning multi-million dollar contracts that would siphon massive profits from the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

BREAKING: John Hinckley To Be Released…

John_Hinckley,_Jr._Mugshot

Via CNN:

A federal judge on Wednesday granted John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, “full-time convalescent leave” from St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.

The order allows Hinckley, Jr. to live full-time in Williamsburg, Virginia, but still under certain restrictions.

Hinckley and his lawyers appeared in federal court in April 2015 and argued that he had been successfully rehabilitated from his illness and that he deserved a release. But prosecutors worried that his family, struggling to pay the bills to treat his illness, could afford to take care of him.

Hinckley was 25 when he shot Reagan and three others outside the Washington Hilton 35 years ago. James Brady, the White House press secretary who was hit in the shooting, died in 2014 due to injuries from the assassination attempt, though authorities announced earlier this year that they would not pursue additional charges.

Hinckley has slowly gained some freedoms since he was incarcerated. In 2003, he was allowed day visits with his family, and since then has been granted longer visits.

He is not allowed to go near any member of the Reagan or Brady families, along with relatives of the Secret Service officer and the D.C. police officer wounder in the 1981 attempt, according to the court order.
