Democratic Rep Caught Playing Candy Crush During State of the Union

BY:

Democratic Rep. Brenda Lawrence (Mich.) was caught playing Candy Crush on her iPhone during President Donald Trump’s first formal State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

Lawerence, secretary of the Congressional Black Caucus, is playing the puzzle game in a photo posted on the stock photo website Getty Images. She is shown, phone in hand, sitting next to two other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D., N.J.) and Joyce Beatty (D., Ohio), who are equally glued to their phone screens as the president speaks.

According to Getty, the photo was taken roughly one-third of the way through the 80-minute address, at 9:42 p.m., while Trump was discussing his administration’s efforts to re-negotiate trade deals to benefit the American workforce.

In the photo, while Lawerence is working her way through another level of Candy Crush, Watson Coleman can be seen staring intently at a response to a tweet she sent only moments before, in which she accused the president of surrounding himself with “white nationalists.”

Beatty appears to be proof-reading her official response to Trump’s unfinished speech.

“That State of the Union is put out an hour in advance so Democrats and Republicans can read along,” a spokesman for Beatty told the Daily Mail. “And while the speech was going on, she was putting together a statement in response.”

Lawerence, who spent decades as an employee at the U.S. Postal Service prior to her election to Congress, told the Detroit News last month that she would wear black to the State of the Union to protest Trump and his administration’s policies.

“I will be in all-black in protest, but I will be in attendance,” Lawerence said.

And you wonder why the kids today seem so screwed up? Aside from parenting time, the kids are subject to brainwashing in school, every day.

Military-bashing California teacher pulled from classroom, city council duties pending investigation

The Southern California teacher facing a firestorm after he was recorded by a student bashing the military in a profane classroom rant has been placed on administrative leave and removed from all assignments he’d be given as a city councilman.

Gregory Salcido, the El Rancho High School teacher and elected Pico Rivera city councilman, will not be able to enter the classroom while school officials conduct an investigation into the recording, the Whittier Daily News reported late Monday.

“One thing we are telling people for sure is that the commitment of the board and the superintendent and the staff is to really get to the bottom of this for the community,” School Superintendent Karling Aguilera-Fort told the paper.

Another teacher has taken over his history and government classes for the foreseeable future, he said.

 

Salcido, 49, told the paper he is not granting interviews at this time.

“Based on the many hateful, vulgar, and violent threats being made against me and my family, my priority is the emotional and physical health of my wife and son,” he said in the text, the paper reported.

In the recordings, Salcido is heard asking students in his government class why they would want to serve in the military overseas.

“Think about the people who you know who are over there. Your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumbs‑‑‑s. They’re not like high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people. They’re the lowest of our low.”

A Pentagon spokesman on Monday condemned Salcido’s remarks as “very uninformed.”

His anti-military rant has also resulted in his removal from all Pico Rivera City Council committee assignments, CBS2 Los Angeles reported.

The council, including Mayor Gustavo Camacho, issued a statement late Monday criticizing Salcido over his remarks.

“We, the elected governing body of the City of Pico Rivera, unequivocally disagree and condemn the recent comments made by Councilmember Salcido regarding those individuals who have served or are currently serving in our nation’s military,” the statement said.

“The City Council and residents of Pico Rivera are steadfast in the recognition that the contributions by those who have served or are currently serving our country via military service are respected and we are grateful for their service.”

A previous statement from Camacho did not comment on Salcido’s remarks while paying tribute to the contributions of those in the military to Pico Rivera.

STUDENT WHO TRIGGERED MILITARY-HATING CALIFORNIA TEACHER GIVES HIS SIDE OF THE STORY

Salcido became a city council member in 1999. He was also mayor in 2002, 2010 and 2015.

The 17-year-old student who made the secret recordings told Fox News opinion writer Todd Starnes Monday that he did so out of anger.

“He has a history of being anti-military,” the student said, of Salcido. “Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion but at the same time they shouldn’t be disrespecting the veterans who have fought for our rights, who give up their lives and do stuff that other people are not willing to do.”

The student, who says he wants to be a Marine, later identified himself as Victor Quinonez to Los Angeles station KTLA-TV.

Quinonez says he recorded Salcido Thursday and gave the videos to his mother, who shared them with a friend. The friend then posted them on Facebook.

The student made three short recordings. Salcido is heard but not seen.

The recordings had been viewed nearly 6.4 million times as of Monday evening, the Whittier Daily News reported.

This could get very interesting. The intent of establishing the FISA court has been abused for years…

The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to invoke an obscure congressional rule to force the release a classified memo written by Republicans that outlines what they say are abuses of federal surveillance authorities.Ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told reporters that the Republican majority voted Monday night to make the four-page GOP memo public, but voted against the idea of releasing a counter memo written by the Democratic minority.

“[House Intel] voted to release GOP memo publicly and to release the Dem memo for viewing by Members of House of Representatives,” committee spokesman Jack Langer confirmed with the Washington Examiner.

The four-page memo put together by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., allegedly details how Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sought the renewal of a federal court-authorized surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

Also reportedly named in the memo are outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey.

By invoking House Rules 10 — which the Congressional Research Service has said has never been invoked before — the memo can now be made public so long as President Trump does not explicitly object within the next five days. The White House has indicated Trump might support the release of the memo, but wasn’t specific on Monday about how Trump would decide.

The Department of Justice warned the committee last week against releasing it, as neither its top officials nor those in the FBI had viewed it.

However, it was reported that FBI Director Christopher Wray was allowed to view the memo in the House’s safe spaces over the weekend.

Democrats have said the memo is misleading and mischaracterizing — it also reportedly accuses top FBI brass of abusing the surveillance warrant process known as FISA — and said they will put together and vote to release a classified memo of their own to fill in the blanks.

“We have crossed a deeply regrettable line in this committee,” Schiff said.

The transcript from the committee’s Monday night debate over both memos will also be made public, Schiff revealed.

Its about damn time.

Woman Sets Fires At Catholic University Over Military In ‘Muslim Land’

edited

A student, who recently dropped out of St. Catherine University, set multiple fires on its campus on Wednesday.

​St. Paul, MN – A former student was charged on Friday with setting multiple fires on the campus of St. Catherine University, according to The Blaze.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Tnuza J. Hassan, 19, told police that “she wanted the school to burn to the ground and that her intent was to hurt people,” according to the complaint charging her that was filed in Ramsey County District Court.

“Hassan said she started the fires because she’s been reading about the U.S. military destroying schools in Iraq and Afghanistan and she felt that she should do exactly the same thing,” the complaint read.

On Wednesday, Jan. 17, Hassan set eight fires in seven locations on the campus of the Catholic university she previously attended, according to university and fire officials.

Police have obtained surveillance video of the woman, who dropped out of St. Catherine during the fall semester, setting fires in various locations between 11:40 a.m. and 2 p.m.

During her fire-starting spree, Hassan started a fire at St. Mary’s Hall, a dormitory that also houses a daycare center, according to the Pioneer Press. There were 33 children and eight adults in the building when the former student started the blaze.

She burned a couch and other small furnishings in the residence call, but the fire alarm went off, triggering the sprinkler system, which prevented the fire from spreading throughout the building.

Police said Hassan also started a fire in the women’s restroom in the Butler Center fitness facility.

According to the complaint, Hassan told investigators that “her fire-starting was not as successful as she had wanted” and that “she wanted the school to burn to the ground.”

Hassan told police she’d dropped out of St. Catherine’s to join her family on a trip to Ethiopia.

Prior to leaving, she said she wrote a letter in support of the Islamic state, and gave it to her roommates. Frightened, they turned it over to university security, the Star Tribune reported.

Assistant Ramsey County Attorney Margaret Galvin said that authorities were investigating Hassan’s international ties.

Dennis Gerhardstein, a spokesman for the Ramsey County attorney’s office, said authorities charged Hassan with the “most severe form of felony arson.”

The Star Tribune reported that Hassan’s attorney, Patrick Nwaneri, asked for $5,000 bail, but Ramsey County District Judge Sophia Vuelo rejected the request, saying that Hassan was a threat to public safety.

Hassan was being held on $100,000 bail at the Ramsey County Jail. Her next court hearing was scheduled for Feb. 28. She had not yet entered a plea.

Additionally, the court issued a “stay away” order banning Hassan from St. Catherine’s campus, and ordered her to turn over her passport.

Today’s humorous article. If it wasn’t so sad, it would be funny.

Former FBI Director James Comey will teach a college course on ethical leadership

The ethics of former FBI Director James Comey have been called into question by some, including the president, over the past year, but Comey will be teaching a course on the subject this fall.

Comey has been hired by the College of William and Mary to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington, D.C. center.

Comey is a 1982 graduate of the college, and the school calls him “among William & Mary’s most distinguished alumni.”

“Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly the truth,” Comey said. “Building and maintaining that kind of leadership, in both the private sector and government, is the challenge of our time.”

The school’s president, Taylor Reveley, lauded Comey for his commitment to the values of ethical leadership.

“He understands to the core of his being that our leaders must have an abiding commitment to ethical behavior and sacrificial service if we are to have good government,” Reveley said.

Comey was fired by President Donald Trump in May for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, and Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence committee in June that he kept memos of conversations with Trump, including when the president asked him to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, which Trump has denied.

Report: TV Crew Arrested For Intentionally Bringing Fake Explosives To Airport

Reporter

A film crew was caught trying to bring fake explosives through airport security in Newark, N.J., Thursday in an attempt to film TSA for a reality TV show.

The seven member team associated with the upcoming reality show “Staten Island Hustle” admitted they want to film how TSA at Newark Liberty International Airport would react to finding a bomb, the New York Daily News reports.

The New Jersey Port Authority caught the fake bombs quickly, and then arrested the stars of the show, which is set to start this spring, along with the crew filming the interaction.

“At least seven individuals have been arrested by Port Authority Police after Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers detected a suspicious item in a carry-on bag,” TSA said in a statement.

 After catching the device, which appeared to be homemade, authorities contacted the FBI, but the explosives were deemed to be fake.

“The TSA bomb tech just happened to be (at the checkpoint),” one source told NY Daily News. “He quickly looked it over, said it was nothing and they were taken in.”

“Staten Island Hustle” was picked up by CNBC and is set to be released this spring, according to Variety. The production company, Endemol Shine Productions which also produces the show “Big Brother,” did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment, but released a statement saying they were looking into the arrests.

“We are looking into the details of what happened as a matter of priority and are in contact with relevant authorities on the ground,” Julie Holland, a spokesperson for Endemol Shine North America, said. “While this process is ongoing we are unable to comment further but in the meantime, we sincerely apologize for any disruption caused.”

The seven filmmakers face charges of conspiracy to create a public alarm and up to $13,000 in fines.

Illegal Immigrant Cop-Killer Says He Regrets Not Killing More Police

edited

Luis Bracamontes murdered two police officers, and mocked his victims on his first day of trial.

Sacramento, CA – A twice-deported illegal immigrant started his first day on trial on Wednesday for murdering two officers.

With a broad smile, Luis Bracamontes refused to obey the judge’s order to remain silent and said in court, “I don’t f—–g regret that s—t. Only thing I f—–g regret is that I f——g just killed two. … I wish I f—–g killed more of those mother——s.”

Bracamontes, who is from Mexico, is accused of shooting and killing Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr. on the same day in 2014.

Bracamontes, 37, faces the death penalty, according to the Sacramento Bee. His wife, Janelle Monroy, 41, is facing a possible sentence of life in prison for helping her husband.

During the first day of his trial Jan. 16, Bracamontes grinned and called one of the officers he murdered a “coward” as the prosecutor was describing to the jury how the officer died.

According to the Sacramento Bee, in 2015, Bracamontes said after a court hearing, “I’m guilty. I killed those cops. I want the execution. I’m guilty.”

Because of his antics, even Bracamontes’ own lawyers don’t deny he murdered the two police officers.

“Let me be clear and up front,” public defender Jeffrey Barbour told the jury, according to the Sacramento Bee. “Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis. He shot them both.”

The trial has been delayed for years as his lawyers continually push for a please of not guilty by reason of insanity. Despite their best efforts, Bracamontes was deemed competent to stand trial.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White removed the jury for a short time in response to Bracamontes’ outbursts and ordered him to be quiet.

But a defiant Bracamontes said, “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me … There’s no need for a f—–g trial.”

Sad, sad tale.

Missing woman’s boyfriend arrested with facial injuries

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED BY:

A grief-stricken Minnesota mom is holding out hope her 27-year-old daughter will be found alive after the girl’s boyfriend, Joseph Porter, was arrested in the wake of Cristina Prodan’s disappearance.

“The deputies told me that they are looking for the body, but I don’t know if they find it or not,” Livia Prodan, of Richfield, Minn., told FOX9 Minneapolis on Monday.

Cristina Prodan lives in Edina and was reported missing there Jan. 5. Five days later her boyfriend Joseph Porter, 25, was arrested in Arkansas on a theft charge. His booking photo shows several apparent injuries to his face.

An Edina Police spokeswoman told Fox News on Tuesday that charges have been brought in connection with Prodan’s disappearance but declined to say what they were.

“Since this is an active investigation, all we’re releasing at this time is that we’re working with multiple agencies on a missing person report that came in at 3:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5,” spokeswoman Kaylin Eidsness said.

She said the charges had been submitted to prosecutors and could be filed this week.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Monday that Edina police anticipate charging Porter, perhaps as early as Tuesday. He was arrested Jan. 10 in Jacksonville, Ark., and was being held without bail at the request of Edina police and US Marshals, according to the paper, which did not identify Porter by name.

Prodan invited Porter to move in with her after they met on Facebook in October, FOX9 reported.

In early December, Porter allegedly became abusive and was the subject of a court order barring him from having contact with Prodan, the station reported.

Records show on Dec. 28, Porter pleaded guilty to violating the order and was sentenced to time served.

Soon after that, Prodan reportedly took him back only to be reported missing days later.

Prodan’s mother told FOX9 her daughter “loved people” and had a nice personality. She said she also told her daughter Porter was just using her.

“She felt in love with him — she wanted to get married,” the mother said. “I told her, ‘He doesn’t love you, he just came to you to steal from you — he’s homeless, he doesn’t work.’”

She accused Porter of killing her daughter, according to the station.

Porter’s rap sheet includes arrests in the past few years for battery, burglary and property damage in Arkansas, where he also lived, FOX9 reported.

WCCO-TV reported last week that in one case a girlfriend said in court papers that Porter “beat her unconscious…and killed her dog violently.”

The Star Tribune also reported that Porter was the subject of a no-contact order involving another woman in Hennepin County in 2014. He was sentenced in that case to probation and ordered to undergo anger- management treatment.
