watch his disastrous interview on 60 minutes right now. Unfreaking believeable.

Cop Threatens To Send Latino Family 'Back To The F**king Border'


A community is calling for an officer's dismissal after a cell phone video showed him swearing and threatening a Latino couple.

Footage in which a police officer in Passaic, New Jersey can be heard threatening a Latino couple has incited hundreds of community members to demand his dismissal from the force.

Sgt. Roy Bordamonte's voice was caught on cell phone video cursing and shouting at Jazmin Vidal and her boyfriend while they sat on their porch, The Record reports.

Vidal told NBC New York that the officer drove up and started talking to them, and became incensed after they asked him to get out of his vehicle.

In the footage, which started gaining attention online this month, the cell phone camera is trained on Vidal and her boyfriend, and the police officer’s voice and radio can be heard in the background.

“You go to school?” Bordamonte says. “What school? What are you, fucking special ed? You fucking idiot. You might be an idiot because you mouthed off. That’s why you’re going to get this ticket.”

He then starts threatening to have the man's family deported:

I’m going to knock on your door and I’m going to check your mom and dad’s ID, and all your fucking cousins, and when they give me that bullshit fucking name, I’m gonna have immigration pick everybody up so they can go back to the fucking border in Puebla or where the fuck they came from and all that work … they came to America, you fucked it up.

The video prompted a rally of hundreds of people outside the Passaic City Hall Tuesday night, demanding the officer be fired. NBC New York notes that 70 percent of the residents of Passaic identify as Hispanic or Latino.

Thursday saw a crowd of about 150, still pushing for the department to either fire Bordamonte or force him to resign. Organizer Diomedes Minaya told The Record that Bordamonte is known for giving out meaningless citations.

“People get stopped on the street for nothing,” Minaya said. “The police are abusing their power.”

The Passaic police department has not replied to a request for comment by The Huffington Post, but Passaic Mayor Alex Blanco released a statement urging residents to stay calm while the city investigates the matter.

Bordamonte was the head of the department’s bias crimes unit, which investigates racially motivated crimes, though Police Chief Rosario Capuana removed Bordamonte from the unit after becoming aware of the video. Bordamonte remains in charge of the “Quality of Life” unit, though he’s placed on desk duty for the time being, according to a memo obtained by The Record.

An online petition to remove Bordamonte from the department has more than 2,000 signatures.

** This is going to start being a common thing I believe**

Rick is gone and now Scotty. Who do you think is next to drop out?

I think Santorum is out next

Here it comes.... (NH town meeting)

The media is fixed on Trumps answer to the guy who called for ethnic cleansing in America.

Trump: "There's alot of bad things, were looking at them. Things are going to change"

I would love to see Jeb on Bill Maher show.

Maher: " So Jeb didn't 9/11 happen under your brothers watch, then how did he keep us safe?"

Jeb!: " Um, *screams fire!!*"

You know what? How many times you think 'Reagan's' name was mentioned in the debate? lol

Trump is right about North Korea, why the silence on North Korea's nuclear direct threat?

They spent so much time threatening Iran.

North Korea warns U.S. it's ready to use nuclear weapons 'any time'


(CNN)In its latest bout of saber rattling, North Korea says it is ready to use nuclear weapons against the United States and other foes if they pursue "their reckless hostile policy" toward Kim Jong Un's regime.

In a statement carried by the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency on Tuesday, an atomic energy official said Pyongyang is improving its nuclear weapons arsenal "in quality and quantity."

"If the U.S. and other hostile forces persistently seek their reckless hostile policy towards the DPRK and behave mischievously, the DPRK is fully ready to cope with them with nuclear weapons any time," the director of the North Korean Atomic Energy Institute said, using an abbreviation of the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

North Korea's main nuclear complex at Yongbyon, which includes a uranium enrichment plant and a plutonium production reactor, is operating normally, the official told the news agency.

** No inspections for NK ?**

Do you think Donald Trump can brag his way to become Commander in Chief?

I'm going to call his demise the Sarah Palin effect. If he does win the primaries, how will he fair in a one on one debate , a town hall meeting, serious questions about foreign and domestic policy. Healthcare,the military, education, infrastructure, employment and unemployment, etc. Could you imagine him doing a state of the union address?



In a long and often emotional interview with Ginni Thomas before his speech on Thursday at the Rally against the Iran Deal in Washington, D.C., Glenn Beck explained his mission to relocate Syrian refugees fleeing ISIS into the United States, even if that requires facilitating their illegal entry and his imprisonment.

“I asked if my audience could raise $10 million before Christmas to bring the Christians in from Syria,” Beck explained. “We will vet them ourselves. We have former CIA people that are going over and they’re vetting everybody right now. We can save more people by Christmas than Oscar Schindler saved. Okay? Well, what are you going to do with them? What are you going to do with them? How are you going to get them in here? State Department won’t let them in. Really? Because I know some bridges over a river in Texas that doesn’t seem to matter. It doesn’t seem to matter. And if they want to say, ‘Now you can’t bring those people in, now you can’t, that’s somehow illegal, we’ll put you in jail’ – I will so gladly grace a jail for the justice cause of saving people’s lives. I don’t need your permission at all to do the right thing! That’s who we need to be now! Forget about Washington! You don’t need permission to do the right thing.”

Beck, who has vocalized his support for the plight of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, even going so far as to organize the distribution of teddy bears, soccer balls, and hot meals to illegal immigrants detained at the border last summer, got emotional discussing the Middle East migrant crisis engulfing Europe.

“‘I hold my lamp beside her golden door,’” Beck cried, reciting a line from the Emma Lazarus poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty. “When we don’t welcome in the tempest tossed. When we can watch them and see a boy laying face down in the sand and we don’t accept them into our country, we don’t have a light that we’re holding by that door anymore. This is a sacred land, and God’s plan will be enacted. God’s will will be done, and he’ll do it with or without us. We must choose to be on his side.”

Beck characterized current events as part of a struggle of good versus evil that he feels compelled to address.

“I’m not a preacher. I’m really under-qualified for everything I’ve ever done,” Beck explained. “But I know this, and I’ve seen it coming for more than 10 years, that there will come a time that the Lord will say, ‘I can’t protect you any more.’ He’s not going to punish us. He’s going to allow us to feel the full ramification of our choice. And that time is here. And I’m not here to change the minds and the hearts of anybody in Congress, any political person, any press person—I think my speech is going to sound like Chinese to most people in Washington and in the media.”

Beginning to tear up, Beck continued, “But I’m here so I will be seen by the Almighty God, that my family will see their father stand. And that hopefully Americans that have eyes to see and ears to hear will understand it’s time now.”

Beck’s message has shifted towards issues of faith, which he sees as divinely serendipitous. “God’s timeline and our timeline has now just connected. We’re now on his timeline. This is the time that we were born for. It’s remarkable. And I can feel it happening,” he said.

“What I’m trying to do right now is work on uniting people of different faiths,” Beck explained. “We don’t have to mix, nor should we mix, our theologies or disregard the differences we have in theology. But [God is] calling all of God’s people together to stand right now. And I’ve done enough homework and enough history to realize what point we’re at right now, and I refuse to be the church that stood and said, ‘Sing louder’ when the trains packed with the Jews go by.”

When asked why Obama’s poll numbers are still so high, Beck answered, “Because we live at the time of warning. Woe to those who make good evil, and evil good.”

When Thomas mentioned how many projects Beck has going currently, he joked, “I don’t sleep a lot.”
