Poor Hillary: No Step Stool Or Bathroom Breaks During Debate With Trump On Monday…

dem-debate

Can Hillary power her way through the debate without having a coughing fit?

Via The Daily Mail:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman asked the Commission on Presidential Debates to give the Democratic presidential nominee a step stool on stage Monday so she could avoid looking dramatically shorter than Republican rival Donald Trump, according to a new report.

The Clinton camp didn’t get its wish, but Hillary will have a ‘custom-made podium, which will accommodate the difference in stature,’ according to a breaking news alert The Drudge Report published Friday morning.

Clinton is 5-feet, 4-inches tall, according to famed news aggregator Matt Drudge. Trump towers 10 inches above her at 6’2″, he adds.

When she meets the Republican nominee Monday night at Hofstra University, Clinton will be stuck on stage if she is unsteady on her feet or lapses into a prolonged coughing fit.

Drudge didn’t name names, but quoted a ‘commission source’ saying: ‘There are no commercial breaks. Period.’

In addition, debate moderator Lester Holt, who anchors NBC Nightly News, will not have the power to instruct cameramen to ‘cut away’ from the stage if Clinton finds herself physically compromised during the 90-minute debate, the first of three showdowns before the November 8 election.

‘And microphone audio for either of the candidates is not to be manipulated,’ Drudge reported.

FBI Docs: Cheryl Mills Asked Hillary’s IT Guru About ‘Wiping Computer Data’

screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-11-33-41-am

Intent? Sounds like…

Via Daily Caller:

Hillary Clinton’s State Department chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, asked Clinton’s email server technician, Bryan Pagliano, about “wiping computer data,” new FBI documents reveal.

According to notes released by the FBI on Friday, Pagliano also told investigators during his Dec. 22 interview that Mills, who now serves as Clinton’s attorney, dismissed concerns he raised in 2009 or 2010 about the then-secretary of state’s use of a personal email server.

The bombshell revelations comes just hours after news broke that the Justice Department granted Mills immunity in exchange for her cooperation with the FBI’s email probe.

Pagliano, who also received limited immunity, told the FBI that in Fall 2013, Mills called him “and inquired about the effectiveness of two types of software for wiping computer data.”

Hillary Delays Trip To Charlotte After Plea From Mayor…

Turning into a get-out-the-vote rally.

Via WISTV:

Presidential Hillary Clinton will delay her trip to Charlotte after a plea on national television from the city’s mayor Jennifer Roberts on CNN.

Roberts said during an interview on CNN Friday night that she would prefer presidential candidate Hillary Clinton delay a trip to Charlotte this weekend that she announced Friday afternoon.

Roberts said she hopes Clinton will delay the trip in an effort to not stress security resources.[…]

Friday night, Clinton’s camp responded – saying that she would delay for more than a week.

“Hillary is grateful for, and intends to honor, the invitation from faith leaders to visit with the Charlotte community. After further discussion with community leaders, we have decided to postpone Sunday’s trip as to not impact the City’s resources,” said Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri.

Clinton will visit Charlotte next Sunday, October 2, “provided circumstances allow.”

Larry Elder On Interactions With Police: “Comply And You Wouldn’t Die”

It’s a simple concept, broken in virtually every case that hits the news.

Yes, not every cop is good or perfect and some may make mistakes or wrongly shoot someone. It’s possible even if you do everything right, you may face an evil cop.

But your chances of survival don’t hinge on your skin color, they hinge on your compliance with the officer’s directions.

Military Wants 500 More Troops In Iraq To Help Iraqi Military Battle ISIS For Mosul…

Boots on the ground.

Via Legal Insurrection:

The military has requested approval to send 500 more troops to Iraq to assist in missions to retake Mosul from the Islamic State. The White House needs to approve the request, but officials promise the troops would not see combat. Instead they would help the Iraqi military coordinate and prepare a mission.

ISIS took over Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, in the summer of 2014. Militaries have pushed ISIS out of many areas, but they continue to hold onto Mosul.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

The new U.S. forces would increase the number of American personnel officially deployed to Iraq from 4,400 to about 4,900. The Pentagon also maintains up to 1,500 additional U.S. forces that it doesn’t acknowledge as part of its Iraq force, most at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad or on temporary assignments. The new deployment would bring the overall U.S. presence to as high as 6,400. The 500 would be in addition to roughly 400 new personnel the U.S. sent to Iraq in early September to prepare for the Mosul offensive.

President Barack Obama hasn’t yet been presented with the military plan, according to U.S. officials.

The White House maintains that the troops the Pentagon sends to Iraq aren’t heading into direct combat. Rather, U.S. officials have said, those troops are there in an advise-and-assist mission. While they are armed and always have the authority to defend themselves on the battlefield, they aren’t performing direct action missions, officials have said repeatedly.

If the White House approves, these troops will stay at an area just south of Mosul that the U.S. has established as a hub called “Q-West” since it is located west of Qayara. Many U.S. forces already stay “there in the past several months in anticipation of the Mosul fight.”

The military does not know what the soldiers will find once everyone advances into Mosul:

U.S. military officials have said it is unclear what kind of fight they will find once inside Mosul. Gen. Joe Votel, who heads U.S. Central Command, said last month there may be areas Islamic State decides to cede to coalition forces immediately, and others in which it decides to fight to the death.

“They are going to have to make hard decisions about where they’re going to concentrate their power and where they’re going to have to let the coalition and our indigenous partners succeed, and that’s kind of what I see going forward,” Gen. Votel said at the Pentagon on Aug. 30.

Los Angeles Police Union: Police Commission Wants Cops To Run From Armed Suspects…

lapd

Stupid is as stupid does.

Via The Daily Caller:

The Los Angeles Police Commission wants LAPD police officers to run away when a suspect confronts them with a weapon, warns the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the labor union of the city’s police officers.

The organization posted a blog post critical of the commission’s recent decision to find that fault lay upon an LAPD officer who used deadly force when a female suspect, Norma Guzman, came at him and his partner swinging a large knife.

“The key facts in this case are not in dispute. A female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly ignored commands to stop, and was recorded yelling ‘shoot me’ as she swung her knife from side to side,” the LAPPL Board of Directors wrote in a blog post.

The armed suspect immediately closed the space between her knife and the police officers from 70 feet to no more than 5 feet in less 10 seconds. At this point, the first officer shot from his service weapon.

The second officer (Officer C) involved in the incident only had three seconds to react to the forthcoming threat. The Commission stated, “It was reasonable for Officer C to believe, in the moment when the use of force occurred, that the subject would imminently assault him with the knife.”

So why did the commission have a problem with the officers’ reaction?

The commission stated that the first officer’s “position initially provided Officer C with a position of tactical advantage” but lost the advantage as the suspect came at him. They wrote, “this advantage rapidly diminished as the Subject continued her advance, leaving him with neither distance nor effective cover as the Subject approached the space between two parked vehicles by which Officer C was located.”

“Suspect charging from the front. Vehicles on either side. Where do you ‘redeploy?’ Run backwards. This is absurd and it’s dangerous. What happens if the officer loses his footing with a charging suspect? What happens if the suspect runs into a nearby home or store and confronts its occupants with her weapon?” LAPPL asks.

NY Town Mourns 4 Murdered Teens, Some Blame Federal Immigration Policy

screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-9-33-05-pm

Guess their lives don’t matter…

Via Fox News:

The village of Brentwood, on New York’s Long Island, is nearly 2,000 miles from the Mexican border, but with four dead teenagers, it has become a flashpoint in the debate over federal immigration policies and their possible links to gang violence.

The murder last week of Brentwood High School students, Nisa Mickens, 15, and Kayla Cuevas, 15, and the discovery of two sets of human remains, males ages 17 and 19, in a wooded area adjacent to the Long Island Railroad have allegedly been linked to the MS-13 gang that has wreaked havoc in Brentwood.

Mickens’ family said they believe gang members tried to kidnap Cuevas, and investigators say Mickens may have been killed trying to help her friend.

Suffolk County police said on Friday that the department was launching an “all-out assault” on gangs in the 11-square-mile town as well as in Central Islip and Wyandanch.

Area residents are worried and frightened given the notorious El Salvadorean gang’s growth in the area, which they say has coincided with an influx of illegal immigrants.

Via CBS 46:

Gwinnett County Police are looking for two suspects involved in a home invasion that left one man dead after a person inside the house fired on the suspects.

The three people were forced out by a woman in the home who had a handgun and opened fire when she saw them inside early in the hours of Sept. 16. One man, Antonio Leeks of Atlanta, was killed in the shootout.

Surveillance footage released on Thursday shows the woman inside the home shooting at the suspects as the scatter. She owns businesses in the restaurant industry and stays at that house with someone else based on a convenient commute to one of her businesses, according to police.

Police are hoping the public can help them identify the two men who fled the scene.

Overnight Open Thread: Moment Mom Finds Out Dying 4 Yr Old Daughter Will Get New Kidney From Her Teacher…

A heartwarming video shows a woman learning that her dying daughter’s teacher will donate a kidney in bid to save the four-year-old girl’s life.

Dena Carreyn from Wisconsin posted a video on Facebook last week which shows her finding out that Beth Battista will be a donor for her daughter Lyla.

Carreyn said on the social media website September 15: ‘Last Friday, I was called into Lyla’s school, Kids Express Learning Center. I was told a new teacher was starting, and I needed to meet with her.

‘You see, every time Lyla gets a new teacher, I have to train that person re: Lyla’s medical conditions, medications, etc. It’s a whole thing.

‘So I show up at the school, and Lyla’s two current teachers are there, and they tell me the new teacher is on her way.

FBI Docs: Clinton Deleted At Least 2,800 Work-Related Emails

But…but..yoga routines? Wedding arrangements?

Via Washington Examiner:

At least 2,800 emails from the records recovered off Hillary Clinton’s server by the FBI were related to her State Department work, government attorneys revealed Friday.

However, most of the files will not be made public until after the election, according to a schedule laid out by the State Department at a court hearing Friday.

Of the 15,000 emails collected by the FBI, 9,400 were deemed personal in nature and will be withheld by the government. Up to 50 percent of the remaining 5,600 emails could be duplicates of documents already made public by the agency, leaving at least 2,800 official records that have never been disclosed.

The revelations came in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch. The Wall Street Journal first reported details of the new production schedule.

Via Washington Examiner:

Employees at Platte River Network, the firm tapped to manage Hillary Clinton’s emails in 2013, sent emails describing the ‘Hilary [sic] coverup [sic] operation’ after Clinton’s staff asked them to begin wiping emails in Dec. 2014.

The revelation came in 189 pages of FBI documents made public Friday evening amid controversy over the five immunity deals extended to aides involved in the case — including one that protected a key employee at Platte River from prosecution.

The unnamed employee told FBI agents that his reference to the “cover-up” was a joke.

He was also claimed by ISIS, who said he was a ‘soldier of the caliphate’.

Used it overseas and lied that she didn’t have another one.

Via Washington Examiner:

Hillary Clinton created a previously undisclosed email account to communicate when her private server system was down, documents made public by the FBI Friday show.

Monica Hanley, a former Clinton aide, told FBI investigators that Clinton likely created the second private account — a “gmail.com” address — to send messages when her server crashed in 2011 during a trip to Croatia.

An FBI report made public earlier this month showed Clinton and her staff had been warned repeatedly about using private accounts while overseas. What’s more, Clinton and her staff have repeatedly said the former secretary of state used just one personal address.

The 189 new pages of notes from the FBI’s closed investigative file came amid controversy over the five immunity agreements doled out to witnesses in the criminal probe.

UN Group: Police Killings Of Black People In United States Reminiscent Of Lynchings

screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-9-16-23-pm

Sigh, America-hating agenda again. No, they’re really not. Shooting someone who has pulled a gun on you or even who you think is reaching for a gun, is at best a mistake, even if not justified. Saying this actually diminishes true lynchings.

GENEVA (Reuters) – Police killings of black people in the United States are reminiscent of lynchings and the government must do far more to protect them, a United Nations working group says in a report that will be debated at the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday.

The hard-hitting criticism – drawing a comparison between modern police behavior and mob killings of blacks in the 19th and 20th centuries – comes at a time of renewed racial tension in the United States.

This week Charlotte, North Carolina, saw street riots over the shooting of a black man, Keith Scott, by a black police officer. On Friday, a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man turned herself into authorities in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Black Louisiana Deputy City Marshal Claims Self-Defense In Shooting That Killed 6-Year-Old White Boy…

There were no riots after the shooting.

Via WAFB:

A deputy city marshal charged with murder after a police body camera recorded him shooting a 6-year-old boy is asking a Louisiana judge to throw out his indictment, saying he acted in self-defense by opening fire on a car driven by the boy’s father.

A court filing by Derrick Stafford’s attorneys says the video recording lacks audio for the first 27 seconds, making it impossible to determine if Stafford started shooting before or after Jeremy Mardis’ father raised his hands inside the car.

Stafford’s lawyers claim the father, Christopher Few, ignored officers’ commands to stop and rammed into a vehicle that another deputy marshal, Norris Greenhouse Jr., was exiting.

Stafford and Greenhouse await separate trials on second-degree murder charges.

A Dallas activist was released from prison Wednesday just eight days after he reported to prison to serve a five-year sentence for seriously injuring a child by shaking him.

And it isn’t an error.

A spokesman for the Texas prison system said Friday that when state District Judge Gracie Lewis noted the date of the beginning of Dominique Alexanders’s sentence on paperwork, she wrote that it was July 2011.
The judge counted the time Alexander lived in the free world on probation as part of his time served.
The move sliced more than three years from his sentence.

“He did his sentence, and he got out out on the 21st,” said prison spokes man Jason Clark.
Lewis declined to comment. She is a Democrat who took the bench in 2009 and was previously a juvenile court associate judge.
