Hillary Clinton ‘Refuses’ To Fill Out Police Union Endorsement Questionnaire

Simple answer: she doesn’t care about police, she’s too busy pitching for black vote and thinks soliciting the police vote would hurt that.

Via American Mirror:

Hillary Clinton may have indicted her real feelings about law enforcement officers by refusing to fill out a police union endorsement questionnaire.

One America News reports the Fraternal Order of Police sent a list of questions to both Clinton and Republican rival Donald Trump.

Trump’s answers covered 12 pages.

Clinton, meanwhile, “refused” to answer anything at all.

D.C. Restaurants Lose Eight Jobs a Day as Wage Hikes Take Effect

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 7.42.18 PM

All of you people who just lost your jobs can thank Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser for your newfound freedom from job lock.

Via Free Beacon:

Restaurants in the nation’s capital experienced their worst hiring period in 15 years, fueling speculation that wage hikes are reducing employment opportunities.

Employment in the food service industry fell in Washington, D.C. even as it continued to increase in the region. Restaurants shed 1,400 jobs in the first six months of 2016, a three percent decrease and the largest loss of jobs since the 2001 recession, according to an analysis from American Enterprise Institute scholar Mark Perry.

The steep drop was isolated to D.C. Neighboring suburbs in Virginia and Maryland added nearly 3,000 jobs over the same period, a 1.6 percent increase in hiring.

Perry said the hiring slowdown can be tied to recent minimum wage hikes in the city. Washington, D.C. began the year with a higher-than-average wage for tipped employees in the restaurant industry. Tipped employees in the nation’s capital earn a base wage of $2.77, almost 30 percent above the federal minimum of $2.13 that is used by Virginia. The city also mandated a $10.50 minimum hourly wage for non-tipped employees in January—higher than Virginia’s $7.25 and Maryland’s $8.75 rate.

“The preliminary evidence so far suggests that DC’s minimum wage law is having a negative effect on staffing levels at the city’s restaurants,” Perry said on AEI’s website. “If the DC restaurant industry can’t easily absorb an $11.50 an hour minimum wage without experiencing the greatest job losses over the last six-months than in any comparable period in 15 years, just imagine the troubles adjusting to further labor cost increases of more than 30% (and $3.50 an hour) for minimum wage workers in the coming years to the full $15 an hour.”

The gap between D.C. labor costs and its neighbors is about to increase even further. In June, Washington D.C. joined a handful of major cities to adopt the $15 minimum wage, more than double the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour. That bill will nearly double wages for waiters and other tipped employees, hiking wages from $2.77 to $5 an hour. Similar laws have been adopted in New York and California.

Video: Harry Reid Calls Benghazi Victim’s Mother ‘Crazy’

Sleazy Dingy Reid. So will Democrats condemn him for this? Don’t hold your breath…

Via American Mirror:

Sen. Harry Reid is fighting back against claims that Hillary Clinton was responsible for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya by calling the most outspoken parent “crazy.”

While speaking to reporters, Reid slammed Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, who died in the 2012 terrorist attack.

“At the national convention, they had that poor Smith woman some out and say, ‘Hillary Clinton killed my son,’” Reid told reporters (wearing sunglasses inside).

“How crazy,” he said.

The Senate Minority Leader was referring to Smith’s speech to the Republican National Committee in July.

Chicago Man Accused Of Shooting At Cop: “I Should Have Smoked His A**”

kentrell-pledger

Not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Via CBS Chicago:

Far South Side man accused of shooting at a Chicago Police officer lashed out at a Cook County judge in court Tuesday, saying he should have just “smoked his a ‑ ‑” after being ordered held without bail, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

“Chicago Police shot at me first,” Kentrell Pledger, a reputed Black Disciple gang member, pleaded with Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr.

As sheriff’s deputies led Pledger away, his protests grew louder: “He shot at me first. So get your story straight, dog. And for that, I should have smoked his a ‑ ‑.”

Pledger then told Bourgeois, who is African-American, “You ain’t black, you’re white, b ‑ ‑ ‑ ‑ ‑.”

A picture of Pledger holding the same weapon used in the shooting Monday in the 300 block of West 106th was posted on social media two hours earlier, Assistant State’s Attorney Guy Lisuzzo said.

When Pledger was arrested after officers found him hiding under a nearby porch, he came out with his hands up, according to a police report.

He allegedly continued to tell the police that he left the gun under the porch wrapped in his red T-shirt.

Pledger, 29, also had one more thing to tell the arresting officers, according to the police report: “Thank you for not shooting me.”

Obama, Kerry Caught With Pants Down On Chemical Weapons In Syria

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 5.23.08 PM

Of course, their supposed deal, trusting Assad and the Russians didn’t work. Who’d have thought?

Via Daily Caller:

Syrian President Bashar Assad likely held on to a few of his chemical weapons, despite assurances by the U.S. officials that he gave them all up to Russia.

A new confidential report by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, obtained by Foreign Policy, “indicate potentially undeclared chemical weapons-related activities.” The report finds the regime’s explanations for the evidence against it are “not scientifically or technically plausible.”

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime … that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” President Barack Obama told reporters in August, 2012. A year later definitive reports confirmed widespread chemical weapons use by the Assad regime against civilians, including sarin gas.

Despite pressure from his advisers, the international community, NATO, and almost every U.S. ally, Obama demurred on his “red line.” Obama instead opted for a Russian-brokered deal with the Assad regime, in which Assad would give up his chemical weapons arsenal.

Defense Official: Iranian Vessels Make ‘High Speed Intercept’ Of U.S. Ship: Defense Official

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 5.07.30 PM

They will mock us and take people hostage, now that they got money from Obama.

Via Reuters:

Four vessels from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) “harassed” a U.S. destroyer on Tuesday by carrying out a “high speed intercept” in the vicinity of the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. defense official said on Wednesday.

The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said two of the Iranian vessels came within 300 yards of the USS Nitze in an incident that was “unsafe and unprofessional.”

“The Iranian high rate of closure…created a dangerous, harassing situation that could have led to further escalation including additional defensive measures by Nitze,” the official said.

The IRGC, the Islamic Republic’s praetorian guard, is suspicious of U.S. military activity near Iran’s borders. The Guards operate land and naval units separate from the regular armed forces and stage frequent war games in the Gulf, which separates Iran from its regional rival Saudi Arabia and a U.S. naval base in Bahrain.

In January, 10 U.S. sailors, who were aboard two patrol craft, were detained by the IRGC when they inadvertently entered Iranian territorial waters. They were released the next day after being held for about 15 hours.

The USS Nitze had to alter course in order to increase its distance from the Iranian vessels, the official said. The official said the incident could have led to a diplomat protest, but the United States does not have diplomatic relations with Iran.

Los Angeles VA Hospital Lost 30 Cars, Then Fired Worker Who Reported It

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 1.37.06 PM

The VA is festival of fraud, waste and incompetence, even after years of promises of reform from the ruling class, it’s a disgrace to the nation and to the veterans they are supposed to be serving.

Via Daily Caller:

Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) bosses fired an employee for reporting a hospital lost 30 of its 88 vehicles and official credit cards intended for the fleet had been misused.

Robert Benkeser, manager at the Greater Los Angeles VA, fired whistle-blower Anthony Salazar after Salazar tried to bring the theft to light. The department convened an “administrative investigation board” (AIB) that resulted in “a letter of counseling” to Benkeser for mismanaging the motor pool. Benkeser then fired Salazar several months later.

The Office of Special Counsel (OSC), a government-wide agency that protects whistle-blowers, said earlier this month that VA blocked Salazar from showing that he was being retaliated against. The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) imposed “an overly rigorous” standard of proof to show prohibited retaliation.

“On Oct. 24, 2013, Mr. Salazar sent another email to Mr. Benkeser and his second-level supervisor, the Assistant Director for Administration and Facilities, about the continued problems with agency vehicle and fleet card usage. “Mr. Salazar described how 30 of the 88 agency vehicles were unaccounted for, explained how ten fleet cards were suspected of fraudulent purchases, and pressed the urgent need for the VA to get the situation under control,” OSC wrote.

Salazar was fired Feb. 4, 2015. The ease with which Salazar was fired — he was put on a “performance improvement plan,” told he didn’t meet the goals, then let go — stands in contrast to the many employees who unambiguously committed egregious misconduct and are still on the job.

For example, two felons work in management at the San Juan VA hospital, and a worker in the security office came to work each day with a GPS monitor because she had taken part in an armed robbery, which a spokesman said was irrelevant since it occurred off-duty. At another VA hospital, a nurse’s aide remains on the payroll as he awaits a manslaughter trial in the beating death of a patient.

White House Refuses To Blame Russia For Cyber Attacks, Says It’s GOP’s Fault…

Earnest

Yes, our fault.

Via Washington Examiner:

White House spokesman Josh Earnest on Wednesday blamed Republicans in Congress for recent cyberattacks against the United States, and refused to blame Russia.

“The United States has made important progress in strengthening our cybersecurity, and that’s because the president has made it a priority,” Earnest said at his daily press briefing. “I would say a significant source of disappointment has been a failure on the part of Congress to provide additional resources that could strengthen our cyberdefenses. It’s Republicans in Congress who’ve been the chief obstacle to this progress.

“You’ve heard me say many times that the president included a substantial, robust proposal in his budget to consider strengthening cybersecurity,” Earnest added. “And Republicans for the first time in four decades canceled the hearing to discuss the budget.”

Black Lives Matter Thugs Pummel Reporter Until They Release He’s Not White: “Stop! He’s Not White! He’s Asian!”

90

In Milwaukee (shocker).

Via Politico:

I knew the protest was going to spiral into something bigger when I saw a man in tears push a police officer. I had never seen anyone lay a hand on a cop, even amicably. But these people gathered now in the street were utterly out of patience. I wasn’t sure whether I would be caught in the crossfire. Then a community activist I had earlier asked to interview spotted me, and called me over.

“I can see from your face that you don’t think you’re safe,” he told me. He was black; I’m Chinese-American. “You are. You’re a minority, too.”

It was just the reassurance I was looking for. It would also turn out to be wrong.

It had all started earlier that day, around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 13, when Milwaukee police officers pulled over two black men in the city’s predominantly African-American Sherman Park neighborhood. The men fled on foot with the officers running after them. Officer Dominique Heaggan caught up with one of the men, Sylville Smith, who was armed. After a confrontation, the details of which are still unclear, the officer shot and killed Smith. […]

As the confrontation went on, the crowd became more and more violent. What started as shoving and rock throwing escalated into smashing cars and setting businesses aflame. By nightfall, I was crouching behind a Chevy Suburban to avoid bullets. Another intern, a white man who had arrived later on to take photos, huddled beside me. After the gunfire ceased, he emerged from behind the car to take more pictures while I stayed behind.

“Get your white ass out of here!” he soon heard. “You better not let me fucking catch you!”

After trying unsuccessfully to defuse the situation, my colleague was flying down the street with a group of men chasing him. Wanting to help, but not knowing how, I decided to run after them. In order to run faster, my colleague dropped the two bulky cameras hanging around his neck. When I tried to retrieve them, and yelled at him to get out of the area, some in the group of rioters started chasing after me too. As a former back-of-the-pack runner in middle school gym class, I wasn’t surprised when they caught me. When they threw me to the ground, I reflexively curled up into a ball. Blows landed on my back, head and torso.

“Stop! He’s not white! He’s Asian!”

I wasn’t sure who said it, or how they knew my race, but within seconds, the punches stopped. Someone grabbed me by the arm and lifted me up. As my vision came back into focus, I saw a group of concerned black faces and heard someone repeating, “Don’t fuck with Chinese dudes.” My attackers had run off. Those who had intervened escorted me to safety.

The Journal Sentinel pulled its reporters off the scene that night once it got violent; thankfully, I walked away from the incident with only scrapes and bruises, and none of my colleagues were injured. Still, I was rattled.

The voice that stuck in my head over the next few days, as I talked to my relatives and friends about it, belonged to a woman who’d come up to me in the afternoon scrum: “You’re Asian, right?” she said to me. “Why are you even here?”

Obamabots Rejoice! Movie About Barack And Michelle’s First Date Opens In Theaters This Weekend…

SOUTHSIDE_Still_0086_crop2_160216_ar1457109859

No, there’s nothing cult-like about this at all.

Via WaPo:

All politicians are actors. They must be, to travel the country telling the same personal anecdotes with the same emotional inflections, all while convincing constituents of their spontaneity and sincerity. When the public wants to know what politicians are really like in private, they either wait for a tell-all by the staff, or they wait for a fictionalized version that feels like it illuminates the truth as well as the facts would.

The new movie “Southside With You,” which opens Friday, is a feature film about Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date in 1989. It’s perhaps best described as a “Before Sunrise” for political wonks: the story spans a single day as the future first couple catch a movie, visit an art museum, and talk about their hopes and dreams while meandering through Chicago. On a more meta level, the movie is about the creation of the Obamas’ private-life narrative — a shaping of how the public will understand them in the future and an acknowledgment of how it sees them now.

“Movies that come out after ours are probably going to be conventional biopics,” writer/director Richard Tanne said in a recent interview when he and the film’s two stars visited D.C.. “They’ll weave in policy and history. The special thing about being able to focus on this slice of life is that you can bring into it your individual perspective, and whatever your relationship with the Obamas is.” He began working on the script even before Obama had won the 2008 election, after watching how the couple interacted: “The way they’d look at each other, flirt with each other, how authentic and sexy their love seemed to be,” he says. “It’s rare in regular people, and even rarer in public figures.”

Crazy Video: Gangstafarians Shoot It Out At Atlanta Gas Station…

Due to the shooters’ lack of shooting skilz, the only one wounded was a woman sitting in the car and she was not the intended target. Also, the article makes reference to a “machine gun”. Viewers of the video will clearly see that there is no automatic fire.
