Charlotte city council member compares police to terrorists

She seems like a nice womyn.

From Fox Insider News: A Charlotte, North Carolina, city councilwoman is receiving backlash after she compared police officers to terrorists on social media.

In the tweet, which was originally posted in March and has gained traction during National Police Week, LaWana Mayfield wrote, “Being black in America under #45 has created homegrown terrorist wearing blue uniforms.”

She posted the tweet, which included the hashtag #AReckoningIsComing, after the deadly officer-involved shooting of an unarmed black man in Sacramento, California.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said the tweet was “offensive” and “hard to stomach.”

FOX 46 Charlotte caught up with Mayfield Wednesday afternoon.

“They find an opinion offensive. When you do the research how many black men and women have lost their lives or been assaulted, then we can have this conversation,” Mayfield said.

This is not the first time the councilwoman has come under fire for a controversial social media post.

In April, she shared an article pushing a 9/11 conspiracy theory, which sparked an online petition calling for her resignation that has received more than 1,700 signatures.

This past October, she tweeted that President Trump is a “disgrace to the nation.”

What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? Gibberish and confusion during her weekly press conference

After watching this video, one has to wonder if Nancy (age 78) is one of the 16 members of Congress having Alzheimer’s medications delivered?

She sure does display some of the early indications of senile dementia: language problems, rambling speech,  and trouble coming up with the right words and using the wrong ones.

Also see Dr. Eowyn’s post from July 2017, “Does Nancy Pelosi have senile dementia?

There are several other videos in that post (also from The American Mirror) which clearly indicate that not all is right in Nancy’s head and with her ability to verbally communicate.

Emma Gonzalez: If you want to shoot assault weapons, go serve your f*cking country

According to Emma an AR-15 isn’t “imperative.”

Set aside the fact that an AR-15 is not an assault weapon. And set aside her fantasy that civilians should not own any of these weapons. And set aside the Second Amendment…

Here’s several reasons why an AR-15 may be imperative:

But hey Emma, you and Media Hogg keep on talking all you want. You’re doing a bang up job for the NRA:

Illegal alien who previously crossed the border four times charged with shootings in Missouri

Lawbreaker: Illegal alien and prohibited possessor Pompa-Rascon/Kansas City Police Dept. photo

From Fox News: An undocumented immigrant illegal alien charged with wounding two people minutes apart in northern Kansas City, Mo., reportedly told investigators he heard “voices” telling him to shoot, and that the gun wouldn’t fire if “they are good people.”

Arnoldo Pompa-Rascon was charged Tuesday with four felonies, including assault and armed criminal action, in the Friday night shootings that wounded a motorcyclist and another man as he pulled into his driveway.

The shootings occurred about an hour after popular tattoo artist Russell Fisk, 30, was fatally shot inside a BMW. No criminal charges have been filed in his death. Court documents filed in the other two shootings say Pompa-Rascon told police he shot a man in a “luxurious” car.

Fisk, a tattoo artist at Black Card Tattoo, died from a gunshot wound to his head, FOX4 KC reported.

A probable cause document stated that, as police were investigating Fisk’s shooting, they received calls on another shooting. A man told authorities he was riding his motorcycle when he heard a gunshot and saw he had been struck. He said he saw a silver sedan drive by.

Following that shooting, officers were alerted to another shooting in Clay County. The victim told investigators he had pulled into his driveway when he noticed a silver sedan stop at his residence. The victim said a man asked him a question but he could not understand what it was because the man spoke Spanish. The victim walked away and was then shot in the chest by the man. The victim said he returned fire but it was not immediately clear if he hit the suspect.

On Tuesday, a man called police saying someone was attempting to steal his truck. The man held the suspect at gunpoint until police came and arrested the suspect, Pompa-Rascon.

Pompa-Rascon claimed he spoke Spanish and was “determined to be an illegal immigrant alien from Mexico and had been previously documented as having crossed the border illegally four prior times, records state,” NBC 12 reported.

Pompa-Rascon was picked out of a six-person line-up from one of the shooting victims who identified him as the man who shot him.

FOX4 DC reported Pompa-Rascon admitted to the shootings and said “voices told him to shoot” — but that his gun would not work if they were “good” people.

Bond is set at $1 million. No attorney is listed for Pompa-Rascon in online court records.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: The NRA is “just shy of a terrorist organization”

img-cs---debbie-wasserman-schultz_173443774497

Hey Debbie, define “assault weapon.”

I triple dog dare you.

From Yahoo (via HuffPo): Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had stern words for the National Rifle Association on Tuesday, responding to the gun group’s new president attacking student survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, for allegedly engaging in “civil terrorism.”

“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.”

In an interview with The Washington Times last week, newly elected NRA president Oliver North accused students of Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School of using “intimidation and harassment and lawbreaking” in the anti-gun efforts they launched following the Valentine’s Day massacre that left 17 people dead at their campus.

“They call them activists. That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists — this is civil terrorism,” North said.

The retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel previously served on the NRA’s board of directors. He is best known for his involvement in the Iran-Contra firearms scandal in the 1980s, in which he was found to have played a key role in the clandestine sale of weapons to Iran, which was under an arms embargo at the time. Funds from those transactions were then funneled to bolster terrorist efforts against Nicaragua’s socialist government.

North was convicted of three felonies related to the scheme, including charges of obstructing a congressional inquiry and destroying evidence. The convictions were later vacated amid concerns that tainted testimony had been used in the case.

Still, Wasserman Schultz said she considered it ironic for someone with North’s past legal troubles to accuse young people of criminal behavior simply for “standing up to make sure that we can keep people safe.”

She also rebuffed North’s contention that the pressure the NRA now faces has “never been seen against a civil rights organization in America,” and is worse than “the terrible days of Jim Crow.”

“The Jim Crow laws actually resulted in the deaths of people standing up for their rights,” said Wasserman Schultz, who headed the Democratic National Committee from 2011-16. “People that are dying as a result of the infection that is the spread of assault weapons thanks to the NRA are being murdered in cold blood without any cessation or interest on the part of the NRA to do anything about it.

Traitor Hanoi Jane and other elderly actresses star in new movie, “Book Club”

Just what everyone wants to see: A bunch of elderly women getting excited because of the book, “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

This new movie opens on May 18 and stars Hanoi Jane, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton and Mary Steenburgen. The premise, from Rotten Tomatoes:

“Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage. Vivian (Jane Fonda) enjoys her men with no strings attached. Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still working through a decades-old divorce. Carol’s (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. Four lifelong friends’ lives are turned upside down to hilarious ends when their book club tackles the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey. From discovering new romance to rekindling old flames, they inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter.”

Some of the movie reviews.

From Hollywood Reporter: “Instead, sit back and watch four dazzling pros inhabit a sitcommy world like nobody’s business, providing whatever dimension it has and selling lines that have no business being sold.”

From the A.V. Club: “The script is so lazy and outdated in its humor, it condescends to the same audience it purports to empower.”

From the Mercury Entertainment: “Were “Book Club” an actual book, a page turner it would not be. The romantic comedy would be more of a lazy read — its plot developments range from sloppy to almost non-existent — but one with reasonably appealing characters.”

Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Awesome: Hero dog jumps into pool to rescue his canine pal

Luvs a happy ending!

From Fox News: An Arizona family filmed a remarkable video that showed a dog save his buddy who fell into a pool and struggled to get out.

Smokey and Remus, the dog buddies, were reportedly getting “rambunctious” earlier this month at their home in Mesa, Ariz. And at some point, Smokey fell into the family pool.

The dog is seen struggling to get out while Remus was pacing along the side.

After a few unsuccessful attempts to get the dog out of the water, Remus can be seen jumps into the pool to give his buddy a nudge.

The incredible video was captured by Laurie and her husband Jay Becerra on security camera, KSAT.com reported.

“So Remus and Smokey got a little rambunctious. Smokey can swim just not well,” Laurie wrote on social media. “Jay recorded this off our security camera when he saw Smokey all wet!

She praised “hero” dog Remus, saying though he may be “a crazy pup he’s got a heart of gold.”
