Bikers And ‘Patriots’ To Descend On McKinney In Support Of Abusive Officer

In full, the group’s statement reads:

TWO RALLY EVENTS: Friday, 7pm and Saturday, 10am, both at McKinney PD HQ as listed here! We understand that the group “2 Million Bikers to DC” will be there to protest AT LEAST on Saturday morning, perhaps before. SHARE THE HECK out of this event and invite all your Patriot friends, bikers, truckers, anyone and everyone for the biggest thing to happen in Patriot Movement since the Bundy Ranch victory! Bring your flags and signs and make it a Patriotic WEEKEND! Race-baiters, cop-haters, outside agitators, and Black Panthers are FLOODING into Collin County by the busload, so we are having a 2nd rally to BACK THE BLUE! In the spirit of anarchy and total lawlessness, black supremacists are now planning to descend upon McKinney, TX to scream and cry about the fact that they were not allowed to 1) Trespass 2) Intimidate, scream at, and curse at home owners and their young children in public 3) Break the law 4) Resist arrest 5) Start a street fight, film it, and brag about it on Twitter. I’m sure you’ve all seen the left-wing lame-stream media coverage of McKinney PD trying to get a screaming, foul-mouthed mob of party-crashers under control. The national race-baiters who make money by stirring up controversy are now pushing for yet more cop-hating protests in MCKINNEY. **Please note: I am devastated that I cannot be there personally for this 2nd rally, but I am working all night that night!*** Cause Patriots HAVE JOBS.

Elizabeth Warren Totally SHREDS Jamie Dimon's Mansplaining!

"The problem is not that I don't understand the global banking system. The problem for these guys is that I fully understand the system and I understand how they make their money," Warren said in response in an interview with The Huffington Post reported on Friday. "And that's what they don't like about me."

Warren has found herself in the crosshairs of the banking industry thanks to her work helping to craft the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and railing against the amount of influence Wall Street has in the halls of Congress.

In December, for example, Warren gave a searing speech bashing CitiGroup's connections to Congress and attacking a provision that rolled back parts of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law.

"You know, there is a lot of talk lately about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect," Warren said in that speech. "So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces."

Denali

There's no easy way to say goodbye to a friend, especially when they've supported you through your darkest times. Denali is the story of photographer Ben Moon and his beloved dog, Denali. A collaboration between director Ben Knight, producer Ben Moon and cinematographer Skip Armstrong, Denali celebrates the human-dog bond and illuminates the incredible resilience we can conjure up with the help of friends.

AMAZING VIDEO (still crying)

Thursday in Miami we showed a large crowd of children how we shoot the homeless.

Antonio Torres a Miami police officer shot Fritz Severe, a homeless man 5 times in front of 40 to 60 children attending a summer camp Thursday morning, according to local media. The homeless man, who was holding a metal stick, was allegedly shot five times after refusing to comply with officers demands for him to drop it. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries.

Two officers were dispatched to the scene with a report of a violent dispute. A nearby library had called the police in order to remove the homeless man because he was brandishing a stick, witnesses said.

Police fired at the man around 10 a.m at Gibson Park in the Overtown neighborhood of Miami, notable for its public swimming pool and athletic fields. The approximately 40 to 60 children who witnessed the shooting were attending a summer camp in the park.

Officer Antonio Torres will be placed on administrative leave, said Miami Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes, according to local media. One witness claims that the homeless man was well-known in the neighborhood and always carried a stick, reports the Miami Herald.

Nevada GOP congressman: My kids ‘will not be a drain on society’ like disabled children

“I have three children,” Hardy explains. “One of them is summa cum laude and two were magnum cum laude. The other one, he didn’t need an education. He works for Raytheon, smarter than all the rest. He works hard, he builds things that are genius. Some people have that ability.”

“But they all work hard. They are raising their own families,” he continued. “They will not be a drain on society, the best they can. Hopefully they will never have some disability that causes them to have to utilize that.”



Nevada State Democratic Party released a statement this week calling on Hardy to apologize to people with disabilities.

“If Cresent Hardy wants to talk about ‘drains on society,’ he should point a finger at his buddy, deadbeat rancher Cliven Bundy, not disabled children,” Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson insisted. “Hardy has compared employment non-discrimination laws to ‘segregation,’ agreed with Mitt Romney that 47% of the American people are ‘freeloaders,’ and now called children with disabilities ‘drains on society.’”

Bernie Sanders: “I think the Republicans, frankly, have gotten away with murder."

When it came to Clinton’s policy positions, though, he could be merciless. He suggested that her refusal to take a position on the controversial Pacific trade agreement being deliberated in Congress is bewildering. Most progressives are imploring Congress to block the deal the Obama administration is negotiating.

“I don’t understand how on an issue of such huge consequence you don’t have an opinion,” Sanders said.

The Vermonter said he would like to see more than the planned six Democratic primary debates — but he said they shouldn’t just be debates of Democrats. Get Republican contenders on the same stage too, he suggested.

“It’s a good idea to have a group of Democrats and a group of Republicans,” he said. “I think the Republicans, frankly, have gotten away with murder. I think people really do not know what their agenda is.”

The world is full of good people. But if you can't find one, be one.
