Rasmussen poll for 2020 POTUS: Oprah 48% Trump 38%

After Oprah Winfrey’s speech at last Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, chatter of her possible running for the presidency in 2020 reached feverish pitch, fueled by Fake News CNN’s report that two “close friends” of Oprah’s said she is “actively thinking” about a presidential run.

So Rasmussen Reports conducted a survey of 1,000 Likely Voters on January 8-9, 2018, with a 3% margin of sampling error. The results, released yesterday:

  • 48% would vote for Oprah in 2020.
  • 38% would vote for Trump.
  • 14% are undecided.

The Rasmussen poll also found that Oprah has a 55% general favorability, and 27% “very favorable” rating, which is consistent with a March 2017 Quinnipiac poll that found Oprah with a 52% favorability rating among Americans in general, and a massive 72% favorability rating with Democrats. However, 69% of those polled by Quinnipiac said she shouldn’t run for president.

Philadelphia’s new DA vows to “trade jails for school”

Didn’t criminals already have a chance at school?

According to Wikipedia: Philadelphia consistently ranks above the national average in terms of crime, especially violent offenses.It has the highest violent crime rate of the ten American cities with a population greater than 1 million residents, as well as the highest poverty rate among these cities. It has been included in real estate analytics company NeighborhoodScout’s “Top 100 Most Dangerous Cities in America” list every year since it has been compiled.

And from the Philadelphia Police, the city ended the 2017 with 315 homicides.

From HuffPo: In an emotional swearing-in speech Tuesday, Larry Krasner, Philadelphia’s new district attorney, promised to transform the city’s criminal justice system, fight inequality and lower the high incarceration rate.

“Today, we start the long road towards trading jails and trading death row for schools,” Krasner said. “Today, we trade fear for sanctuary.”

A civil rights defense attorney with a history of suing the Philadelphia Police Department, Krasner was elected as the city’s top prosecutor in November, defeating Republican opponent Beth Grossman.

Krasner, who has been applauded by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and other progressives for his calls for reform and strong stance against capital punishment, said Tuesday that everyone deserves protection, support and a second chance. He spoke of human potential being lost due to incarceration, and of how the current system impacts residents across the city — from the police officer to the young student to the mother of a heroin addict.

“Today we start the long road towards trading division between police and the communities they serve for unity and reconciliation and cooperation, all of which make us safer,” he said.

Along with not pursuing death sentences, Krasner has said he will end the city’s use of cash bail and its controversial “stop and frisk” policy.

Krasner said the election was not about him as a person, but “a movement for criminal justice reform” that is sweeping the nation. His duty as a “technician” of that movement, he said, is “to seek justice in society.”

“That requires us to communicate the truth, to represent the public and to exercise power with restraint, with our roots dug deep in the rich soil of equality,” he said. “That’s what we need to do.”

Krasner replaces Kelley Hodge, who has been serving as acting district attorney since July, when she replaced Seth Williams(demorat). Williams announced in February that he would not seek a third term and was later indicted on 29 federal fraud charges involving campaign funds and other financial disclosures. He pleaded guilty to a bribery charge and was sentenced in October to five years in prison.

Of Course They Do

Next Question Please

 

For those who are expecting more, this is deliberately brief. The point is that the reflexive accusation of racism as a means of silencing every kind of non-leftist speech is a very tired meme. You can call me racist until you faint, and I will not be shaken up or defensive. Leftists, black and beige alike, you are boring.

Breaking! NYPD released pic of white supremacist who drew swastikas on Manhattan doors

NYPD is searching for a man who’s been vandalizing apartment buildings throughout Manhattan by drawing swastikas and penises on more than a dozen doors in the last 30 days.

The man’s vandalism includes:

  • In the evening of Nov. 26, the man entered a Kips Bay high-rise near Madison Avenue and East 29th Street and vandalized apartment doors on the 48th floor with drawings of two swastikas, male genitals, and “Max G was here”.
  • A few days later, the man went inside a Financial District apartment building near Pine Street on Dec. 2 at about 3 p.m. He drew an upside-down cross on the building’s elevator doors, and multiple swastikas, male genitals and the tag “Max G was here” on apartment doors.
  • On Dec. 18, the man entered an apartment building near North Moore and Greenwich streets and drew a swastika, male genitals and “Max G was here” on two floors.
  • The next day, the man went inside a Chelsea apartment building, located on W. 29th St., at about 11 p.m. and drew swastikas and male genitals on nine doors.
  • The most recent vandalism happened on Dec. 23, when the man entered another Chelsea apartment building, on W. 23 St., and drew a swastika, male genitals and “Max G was here” on various doors.

On December 27, NYPD released a photo of the man they believe has spray-painted the hateful images.

Police have not yet identified the suspect. The police department’s hate crimes task force is investigating the incidents. (Source: Patch)

NFL, Morehouse College co-host “social justice” workshop

Colin Kaepernick

Oh, the personal “sacrifice” of the warrior Kaepernick…

No doubt listing that workshop on your resume will certainly impress potential employers.

From Fox News: The National Football League is partnering with Morehouse College for a three-day social justice workshop in February inspired by Colin Kaepernick’s activism.

“The Advocacy in Sport Workshop is a direct extension of Colin Kaepernick’s activism,” Interim President of Morehouse College Harold Martin Jr. wrote in a letter. “We recognize and applaud Mr. Kaepernick’s efforts and personal sacrifice. His work…inspired this very tangible discussion and training.”

The workshop in Atlanta, Ga. “will engage professional athletes around issues of social justice and other advocacy agendas emphasizing how to effectively launch platforms that rally community support and national attention.”

The announcement comes after the NFL pledged to donate $89 million to social justice causes over the next seven years, a commitment that came after Kaepernick and other NFL players kneeled during the national anthem to protest police brutality and other perceived racial injustices.

“This historic workshop is aimed at training the next generation of athletes who wish to use sport as a powerful platform for advocacy,” said Troy Vincent, NFL executive vice president of football operations in an NFL press release. “Our partnership is designed to equip athletes as influencers and community leaders with the mechanics to develop their advocacy platform.”

Dr. David Wall Rice, associate professor of psychology at Morehouse, designed the curriculum for the workshop through his Identity, Art and Democracy Laboratory. Students selected to participate in the workshop will also take his winter term course Psychology, Sport and Social Justice.

Rice tweeted his thanks to Kaepernick for the event: “Looking forward to this crucial work. Thank you @Keapernick7 @RISEtoWIN @nfl @Morehouse for the activism that got us here…”

“Linking with the NFL and their players in pushing forward social justice agendas that mirror present and past activist foundations of Morehouse College is important work,” said Martin Jr. “We take our relationship here and the trust that many of the players have already communicated to Dr. Rice seriously, and we know that the work we do in February and beyond has the capacity to impact lives.”

Kaepernick drew praise but also outrage for refusing to stand during the national anthem. Some accused him of lacking patriotism and disrespecting the American flag. He has not been signed by another team since his protest.

While the university referred to Martin’s letter, Benson said “the workshop will not support or promote kneeling during the national anthem.”

Report: NFL wants to use breast cancer, military funds to quiet protesting players

NFL blowback

Yeah, that move will definitely enhance the NFL’s image and reputation.

From MSN: 49ers safety Eric Reid claims the NFL’s proposed initiative to contribute $89 million to social justice causes is shifting money away from breast cancer and military support programs, according to Slate.com.

The NFL on Friday issued a memo to teams disputing that claim.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the NFL had proposed the massive funding initiative after meetings with the Players Coalition, a group of players meeting with league officials on social justice issues. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and retired wide receiver Anquan Boldin founded that group and have led talks with the league.

But Reid and some other players walked away from the coalition this week over disagreement about how that initiative would be funded.

“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us — based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate.com Thursday. “So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one.”

Other players who have left the Players Coalition over the issue include Dolphins safety Michael Thomas and Chargers offensive lineman Russell Okung.

Accordng to ESPN, the NFL submitted its proposal to players Monday. Owners will still have to vote on the proposal at the league meetings in March. The funds would come from both owner and player contributions, as well as select events such as memorabilia auctions.

But Reid claims he’s been told the NFL intends to use money already earmarked for the breast cancer awareness and military salute programs, making it easier for owners to sign off on the deal.

“[NFL Commissioner] Roger Goodell is trying to make this as easy for the owners to agree to as possible so that — again, their goal is to end the protests,” Reid said. “He’s trying to make it as easy possible to do that for the owners. He’s going to present them with a proposal saying, ‘Look you really don’t have to do anything. We’re just going to shift this money from this area and just move it here.'”

NFL Chief Operating Officer Tod Leiweke disputes that account of how the program will be funded. In a memo sent Friday to club ownership, community relations directors and player engagement directors, Leiweke wrote, “This new program will supplement, and not replace, our other key social responsibility efforts, including Salute to Service, cancer awareness, domestic violence/sexual assault and youth programs.”

Reid contends that while reports have suggested that 40 or more NFL players have been involved in the Players Coalition talks, the true figure is less than half that number, and that Jenkins is the only one of those players who has participated in national anthem protests.

While there is no informal agreement that players would stop protesting as part of the $89 million proposal, Jenkins announced Thursday he would no longer protest during the anthem.

“Based on my understanding, every player who was actually protesting [aside from Jenkins] was not in agreement [with] this proposal,” Reid said, via Slate. “That leaves a remaining, I guess, nine or so players who don’t protest who were in agreement with the proposal.”

Lawyer of Steinle killer blames racism, and other reactions to Kate Steinle verdict

Her name is Kate Steinle

On July 1, 2015, 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle died in hospital two hours after being shot in the back by a bullet which had ricocheted off the concrete floor of Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district of San Francisco while she was walking with her father and a friend.

The bullet was fired from a 40 caliber handgun held by Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, a Mexican national who was illegally in the United States, had been deported from the U.S. a total of five times, most recently in 2009. He was on probation in Texas at the time of the shooting, and had seven felony convictions of drug (heroin possession and manufacturing.

On March 26, 2015, U.S. Bureau of Prisons turned Garcia Zarate over to San Francisco authorities for an outstanding drug warrant. He was transported to San Francisco County Jail to face a 20-year-old felony charge of selling and possessing marijuana after he had completed his prison term in San Bernardino in Southern California for illegally entering the U.S.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a detainer for Garcia Zarate, requesting S. F. authorities to keep him in custody until immigration authorities could pick him up. But, San Francisco, being a sanctuary city, disregarded the detainer and released him on April 15, 2015.

2½ months later, on July 1, Garcia Zarate fired the bullet that killed Kate Steinle. If San Francisco had not released the illegal repeat-offender, Steinle would still be alive today.

Garcia Zarate claimed he had fired the shot accidentally while picking up the gun which he had found, moments before, wrapped in cloth beneath the bench on which he was sitting. (The gun belonged to a BLM ranger, who lost the gun when his car was broken into.)

The bullet struck Steinle in the back and pierced her aorta. Her father and others performed CPR on Kate before paramedics arrived and took her by ambulance to San Francisco General Hospital where she died two hours later.

Garcia Zarate fled the scene and threw the gun into the bay. He was arrested about an hour after the shooting about one mile south of Pier 14. San Francisco Police divers found the gun in the bay alongside Pier 14 the next day.

During the trial of Garcia Zarate, which began on October 23, 2017, police revealed how they tricked him into confessing to the shooting. The prosecution claimed he brought the stolen gun to the crime scene while the defense contended the weapon was found under a Pier 14 seat.

On November 30, 2017, after 9 days of deliberation, the jury found Garcia Zarate not guilty of murder and manslaughter, but convicted him on illegal possession of a firearm. (Source: Wikipedia)

Here are some reactions to the Steinle murder verdict:

(1) President Trump:

(2) Secret Service agent Dan Bongino:

(3) Steinle killer’s defense attorney, Francisco Ugarte, calls those who are outraged by the jury verdict “racists” (h/t Gateway Pundit):

“I believe today is a vindication of the rights of immigrants. That today we have to reflect all of us on how we talked about this case in the beginning. And how this swarm of reflection and reaction on the basis of what I believe to be the racial dynamics of this case. Nothing about Garcia Zarate’s ethnicity, nothing about his immigration status, nothing about the fact that he was born in Mexico had any relevance on what happened on July 1, 2015.”

In other words, Ugarte wants it both ways — While insisting that Zarate’s illegal “immigration status” has no relevance to his killing of Steinle, Ugarte at the same time calls the jury verdict “a vindication of the rights of immigrants”.

(4) Trump administration will deport Zarate:

(5) Republicans react to Steinle verdict by rioting . . . .

What you can do:

Support Kate’s Law!

After Steinle’s killing, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Arizona) introduced HR 3011, the Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act of 2015, also known as Kate’s Law. No vote was ever held. (Salmon has since retired from Congress.)

On June 23, 2017, House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) reintroduced Kate’s Law (HR 3004) and an anti-sanctuary city bill into the House. HR 3004 protects public safety by enhancing penalties for deported felons who return to the United States.

On June 29, the House passed HR 3004 or Kate’s Law by a vote of 257-167. The bill is now in the Senate.
