UNLOADING ON COPS

It should come as no surprise that an angry black man with a gun would empty his gun into a white policeman.

Given the long history of police shootings in which suspects were not just shot, but literally mowed down in a hail of bullets, it's obvious that someone seeking retribution might act in the same way.

Maybe it's time to rethink the way suspects are apprehended by police rather than vilifying an obviously mentally damaged lone wolf.

Ambushed Texas Sheriff’s Deputy Was Shot 15 TIMES In Gas Station Execution
 

Authorities in Harris County, Texas say 30-year-old Shannon Miles ambushed sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth and shot him 15 times at a Houston-area gas station Friday.

Miles was arraigned Monday and is being held without bond on capital murder charges.

“They found Deputy Darren Goforth face down in a pool of his own blood,” Harris County district attorney Devon Anderson told a judge during Monday’s court proceedings, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Miles allegedly approached 47-year-old Goforth from behind and shot him in the back of the head. Miles continued shooting the 10-year veteran, who was in full uniform and still on duty, even after he fell to the ground.

The 15 shell casings found at the scene matched a .40-caliber handgun found at Miles home, according to Anderson.

“He unloaded the entire weapon into Deputy Goforth,” she said in court.

TRUMP TRAMPLES MEDIA POLITICS

 What happened to objective journalism?  Reporting the news rather than making it? The claim that journalists have the right to ask obviously personal and biased questions promoting political agendas is preposterous. First Kelly, now Jorge' come into Trump's cross hairs and suffer the consequences.




At an Iowa event on Tuesday, Donald Trump threw Univision anchor Jorge Ramos out after the journalist pressed the Republican presidential frontrunner on immigration.

"Excuse me, sit down. You weren't called, sit down. Sit down. Sit down," Trump said. He then proceeded to call on another journalist who raised his hand.

Ramos continued his questioning and said, "I have the right to ask a question." Trump replied, "No you don't. You haven't been called. Go back to Univision."

The Univision anchor then said to the GOP candidate, "You cannot deport 11 million people."

ASHLEY MADISON CHEATS

Just when you think that people are not as dumb as you think they are another example of how wrong you are pops up.

Paying to find someone to cheat with? Really?  Especially on a site where 90 to 95% of the membership is male and looking for the same thing you are. D_U_M_B_!



Back on July 15, tech blogger Brian Krebs revealed that a hacking collective calling itself Impact Team had “completely compromised” adultery websiteAshleyMadison.com’s user databases, financial records, and more. According to Impact Team, one of the reasons they targeted Ashley Madison is because of its “full delete” feature—where, for the price of $20, the site said it would completely wipe all of the user’s data. The hackers claimed that this function, which allegedly netted Ashley Madison’s parent company ALM $1.7 million in revenue in 2014, was “a complete lie,” and that user data remained on their database.

Well, it looks like the hackers have been proven correct. On Tuesday evening, Impact Team released all of the hacked Ashley Madison data online, along with a message:


“Avid Life Media has failed to take down Ashley Madison and Established Men. We have explained the fraud, deceit, and stupidity of ALM and their members. Now everyone gets to see their data. Find someone you know in here? Keep in mind the site is a scam with thousands of fake female profiles. See ashley madison fake profile lawsuit; 90-95% of actual users are male. Chances are your man signed up on the world's biggest affair site, but never had one.

Stolen data from the Ashley Madison infidelity dating site includes approximately 10,000 email addresses belonging to government officials or workers with .gov addresses. The Daily Beast reviewed the files and found accounts linked to the email addresses of members of the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), as well as numerous officials from the Australian and British governments. The Daily Beast, however, cannot verify the authenticity of all the accounts yet.

The data dump included 36 million email addresses for 33 million accounts, along with user names, first and last names, the last four digits of credit cards, personal IP addresses, street addresses, and phone numbers for a large number of them. In total, the hackers released 10GB of compressed data—a staggeringly large amount.

THOSE LEFT BEHIND

If this were the "end of days" and the Rapture had begun, it looks like Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders were chosen while the rest of the political herd will be among the "fallen" and those left behind,

and it's got the Establishment in a tizzy.




Donald Trump is on top in Iowa, Ben Carson is hot on his heels, and Bernie Sanders has flown past Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire.

That’s the snapshot polls captured this week. It’s a far cry from the Bush-Clinton horse race that many had predicted going into the 2016 campaign season — and it belies conventional wisdom that predicted Trump’s demise after he attacked Fox News host Megyn Kelly after last week’s GOP presidential debate. The results have skeptics asking: Are these numbers the real deal? Story Continued - Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2015/08/are-the-polls-skewed-121346.html#ixzz3ikPcLJBi

BERNIE'S HIT LIST

Using the Sara Palin "cross hairs" approach Bernie Sanders is taking aim at the super wealthy tax dodgers that continue to live high on the hog at the tax-payers expense.



This is welfare at it's worst and continues to drain this nations resources at the expense of the middle and lower classes who continue to carry the weight of the seemingly untouchable upper class.



Bernie's hit list consists of some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in America; primarily old white males who buy politicians who then write the laws that allow them to exploit the system and eat the hand that feeds them; the American taxpayer.  This is only the tip of the iceberg. There are thousands more like these welfare kings who hide in the shadows and spend inordinate amount of money to stay below the radar and out of Bernie's cross hairs.





Remaining true to his promise to serve the people as a politician, Sanders responded to the lecture from the American CEO’s by releasing a report detailing how 18 of them have helped blow up the deficit and wreck the economy outsourcing jobs and evading US taxes.



The list of 18 CEO’s follows:



1) Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $1.9 billion tax refund.



Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department? Over $1.3 trillion.



Amount of federal income taxes Bank of America would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $2.6 billion.


2) Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2008? Zero. $278 million tax refund.



Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department? $824 billion.



Amount of federal income taxes Goldman Sachs would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $2.7 billion


3) JP Morgan Chase CEO James Dimon



Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department? $416 billion.



Amount of federal income taxes JP Morgan Chase would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $4.9 billion.


4) General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt  



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $3.3 billion tax refund.



Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve? $16 billion.



Jobs Shipped Overseas? At least 25,000 since 2001.


5) Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $705 million tax refund.



American Jobs Cut in 2010? In 2010, Verizon announced 13,000 job cuts, the third highest corporate layoff total that year.


6) Boeing CEO James McNerney, Jr.



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? None. $124 million tax refund.



American Jobs Shipped overseas? Over 57,000.



Amount of Corporate Welfare? At least $58 billion.


7) Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer



Amount of federal income taxes Microsoft would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $19.4 billion.


8) Honeywell International CEO David Cote



Amount of federal income taxes paid from 2008-2010? Zero. $34 million tax refund.


9) Corning CEO Wendell Weeks



Amount of federal income taxes paid from 2008-2010? Zero. $4 million tax refund.


10) Time Warner CEO Glenn Britt



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2008? Zero. $74 million tax refund.


11). Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2009? Zero. $55 million tax refund.


12) Deere & Company CEO Samuel Allen



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2009? Zero. $1 million tax refund.


13) Marsh & McLennan Companies CEO Brian Duperreault



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $90 million refund.


14) Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs



Amount of federal income taxes Qualcomm would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $4.7 billion.


15) Tenneco CEO Gregg Sherill



Amount of federal income taxes Tenneco would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $269 million.


16) Express Scripts CEO George Paz



Amount of federal income taxes Express Scripts would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $20 million.


17) Caesars Entertainment CEO Gary Loveman



Amount of federal income taxes Caesars Entertainment would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $9 million.


18). R.R. Donnelly & Sons CEO Thomas Quinlan III



Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2008? Zero. $49 million tax refund.





As PoliticusUSA discloses, eighteen of the 80 CEOs who signed the call for deficit action are actually some of the biggest outsourcers and tax cheats in America. Not only did they crash the economy in 2008, they followed that incident by taking billions in taxpayer bailout dollars.



Then, they outsourced jobs and evaded taxes. It’s pretty unbelievable, then, that they are now calling for action on a deficit that they helped create over the past four years.



Thankfully, Senator Sanders is not standing for the corruption and has done a great deed by bringing the disgraceful actions of these CEOs to attention.

TRUMP AS USUAL

I'm begining to like this guy. He's a clown, an idiot, a bigot, a racist, a misogynist, a super duper narcissist, and a tried and true A-hole. And he's taking a wrecking ball to politics as usual.



He embodies everything the Republican party stands for and has no problem owning it. In my book this makes him the best possible candidate for a party that has long hid it's real agenda in the shadows.




Republican brains are exploding and no matter how hard they try they just can't knock Humpty Trumpy off the wall. 

According to the tweets, Trump said he was cleaning house and running a “serious campaign,” and called the Washington Post over and over again to comment.

“I want to surround myself only with the best and most serious people. We want top of line pros,” Trump told the Post.

TROPHY HUNTERS AND SERIAL KILLERS

People that kill for the fun of it (pleasure) are psychological deviants and in many cases labeled as serial killers.



The behavior of "trophy" hunters; those who kill some of our most majestic wildlife for pleasure and/or notoriety are remarkable similar to those of serial killer;


Serial killers enjoy prolonging the suffering of their victims as it gives them a sense of power over the victim. They get to decide whether, and how, the victim will live or die.

They have a belief that “the power to cause pain is the only power that matters, the power to kill and destroy, because if you can’t kill you are always subject to those who can” (Card). 


Killing is usually the only way they can achieve those feelings of empowerment.  They think that killing the victim, usually in some sort of a ritualistic manner.

Serial killers must continuously kill simply because they are addicted to the feelings they get when they do. They also rationalize every aspect and detail of their behavior so there is no reason in their head as to why they should stop. 

 Most serial killers, and psychopaths in general, are “consummate chameleons” who are able to hide their rage and true intentions behind a charismatic, civilized fa├žade called the “mask of sanity”  Psychopaths are amoral and though they knowing the difference between right and wrong, they do not care and lack feelings of remorse or guilt. They tend to objectify their prey and treat them as if they were objects. They don’t know how to have sympathy  because of their psychopathic nature, but they do know how to simulate it by observing others.

Most serial killers are highly charming and persuasive, but it is only a manipulative act.  Their killings are material symptoms of the combination of their lifelong habits and personal motivations and fears.  

Two of these killers that made headlines this week are doctors who obviously don't take their professional oath to "do no harm" seriously when it comes to living creatures outside their offices. 



The tourist who paid thousands of pounds to kill one of Zimbabwe’s most cherished lions has been identified as an American dentist.Authorities in Zimbabwe say Walter Palmer, from Minneapolis, paid a $55,000 (£35,000) bribe to wildlife guides to allow him toshoot the lion, named Cecil, with a crossbow.

The 13-year-old animal was found beheaded and skinned near the Hwange National Park, where he was beloved by tourists and local residents alike.

Dr Palmer, who is described as an “experienced general and cosmetic dentist” on his practice’s website, is married with two children. His professional biography describes his enjoyment of “outdoor activities”, adding: “Anything allowing him to stay active and observe and photograph wildlife is where you will find Dr Palmer when he is not in the office.”

On July 1, Cecil the lion was allegedly lured out of a protected national park by hunting bait — a dead animal being dragged by a Jeep — as two of Palmer’s companions used a spotlight to focus on the majestic animal while he aimed his bow and arrow at the animal.

After it was shot, the bleeding lion was then tracked for 40 hours, before it was eventually shot and killed by Palmer’s group. The animal was then beheaded, and skinned, with the remains left behind.


The hunter hunted: American dentist who paid $55,000 to kill Africa's most famous lion goes into hiding and says he 'did nothing wrong' as Zimbabwe police demand to speak to him

The lion hunter's house of horror: Dentist 'wanted to show off Cecil in special shrine, which contains than than 50 animal heads'

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3182475/The-lion-hunter-s-house-horror-Dentist-wanted-Cecil-special-shrine-contains-50-animal-heads.html#ixzz3hnAUQayS 
 


Walter Palmer, the despised hunter who killed Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, has a special ‘hunting shrine’ where he is believed to display the heads of more than 50 animals he has killed from across the world.

And neighbours say the building – on a 650-acre plot the dentist owns in rural Minnesota – is where Cecil’s head was destined to be mounted.

The brazen dentist has also kitted out the taxidermy showroom with a drinks bar where he sits and admires his handiwork and has pals over to visit so that he can show off the spoils of his hunting trips.

On show are local elks, deer, moose and bears alongside his collection of exotic African animal kills.   

Past conquests: Kimmel showed the audience photos of Dr Palmer posing with his other wildlife trophies, including another lion he killed some years ago 

Unfortunately the good doctor is not alone but only one of a group of similarly deranged and wealthy individuals; most often members of the notorious 1%, who pay vast amounts of cash to satiate their desire for power/control and derive pleasure slaughtering magnificent creatures of the wild.   

Every year, trophy hunters kill thousands of exotic wild animals, representing hundreds of different species, in foreign countries, primarily in Africa. They prefer to kill the most beautiful, the biggest and the rarest.

Wealthy trophy hunters pay big bucks to local cash-stripped governments for permits that grant them a choice of which animal to kill—Donald Trump’s two sons just killed several wild animals, including a giraffe and an elephant in Zimbabwe. The list of “huntable” species is usually very long and includes more common species such as impala, black bears, common zebra, giraffes, and baboons, but also endangered species such as elephants, leopards and white rhinos (the Western African black rhino was recently officially declared to be “extinct”).

There is also no regard for species protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) such as the African elephant or leopards. In fact, the more rare the animal, the more thrill to kill for the “big game” hunters, and the higher the price for the permit.

Competition and Bragging rights
Trophy hunters do not care about conservation, the struggle for survival of many animals. What they care about is killing the biggest and the best, and bringing home full trophy mounts or body parts. Heads, horns, tusks, and other body parts of most of these animals are legally, and sometimes illegally, imported as trophies to the United States by the hunters.

Trophy hunting hurts conservation
The mantra of trophy hunters is that their killing “benefits conservation”, but not only are individual animals brutally sacrificed, trophy hunting poses a significant threat to the very survival of African lions. Similarly, considering that African elephants are already endangered— by some estimates facing extinction in 50 years—it is ludicrous to argue that trophy hunting benefits elephants.

The ESA allows importation of endangered species only for scientific research, enhancement of propagation, or survival of the species. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), which implements the ESA, has broadly interpreted the term “enhancement” to include trophy hunting of protected species, and trophy hunters often take advantage of the loopholes to find ways to take “their trophies” across the U.S. border, under the guise of scientific research and other permits for exemption.

In 1997, Kenneth Behring, millionaire, trophy hunter and former president of the Safari Club International (SCI), paid the government of Kazakhstan to allow him to shoot an endangered Kara Tau argali sheep, of which only 100 individuals were left. He then donated $100 million to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and solicited the help of the museum for an import permit. A public outcry ensured and USFWS withdrew the permit. This is not an isolated case and the reality is that many museums have been involved in facilitating the killing and import of endangered species by trophy hunters in the past.

The Safari Club International (SCI)
Trophy hunting is an elitist hobby for those excited to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a safari with the goal of killing a beautiful, large or rare exotic animal. Many trophy hunters are members of powerful and wealthy organizations such as the Safari Club International (SCI), which promotes competitive trophy hunting throughout the world, even of rare and sensitive species, including in cowardly “canned hunts”, through an elaborate awards program.

Killing contests
SCI members kill particular species of animals to win so-called ‘Grand Slam’ and ‘Inner Circle’ titles. The list of macabre ‘contests’ include the Africa Big Five, (leopard, elephant, lion, rhino, and buffalo); the North American Twenty Nine (all species of bear, bison, sheep, moose, caribou, and deer); and the Antlered Game of the Americas, among many other contests. SCI members take short cuts in their hurry to beat competitors by killing captive and defenseless animals in canned hunts, both in the United States and in other countries. Corruption and unethical behavior is rampant in this bloodthirsty competition. “Hunters” lure animals to their guns with bait, shoot them from helicopters or vehicles with spotlights, or in or near national parks. There are 29 awards in all, and in order to win all of them, at the highest level, a hunter would have to kill 322 animals of different species or subspecies.

The “Holy Grail” for SCI members
The “Holy Grail” for SCI members is the club’s record book, a three-volume compendium of thousands of pages listing names of who killed what animal, where and when. The list spans more than 1,100 species, some of which have since become extinct. Meticulous scores and rankings are recorded for the biggest tusks, horns, antlers, skulls and bodies, with photographs of grinning men and women posing with their high powered rifles or archery gear next to dead animals, often holding the animals heads up to display their “prize”.

SCI contributes large sums to mostly Republican candidates, and supports those who are eager to help further the club’s shameful agenda to weaken and to circumvent the intent of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and to legally import once-banned trophies of endangered and threatened wildlife.

Examples of the SCI’s efforts to derail wildlife protection include fighting a current petition to protect the African lion under the ESA. Along with the National Rifle Association (NRA), SCI intervened with a law that directed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remove the Northern Rocky Mountain wolves from the endangered species list. In 2007, SCI testified at a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service hearing opposing the proposed listing of polar bears as a “threatened” species under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

The SCI continues to create and feed a culture glamorizing death and violence globally, across political lines, international borders, and against wildlife and even people. Fortunes are made on the back of millions of animals whose lives are taken by trophy hunters for the sake of killing in an endless spiral of competition.

And while most empathic people prefer to simply watch these magnificent animals, already struggling to survive in human-dominated landscapes, trophy hunters fulfill their lust to kill the largest animals and the most exotic animals to rack up SCI awards. Underlying these actions are futile efforts to transcend weak character, arrested emotional development, narcissism, sexual perversion, anger and finally, a misguided attempt to overcome their own disconnect to nature.

It's encouraging to see that the hunters are now being hunted; 

A second American has been named in a growing big game poaching investigation in Zimbabwe.

Pennsylvania Dr. Jan Casimir Seski, 68, is accused of killing a lion in an illegal hunt in April and his guides have been arrested in the African Country.

Dr. Seski has been pictured online with a series of dead animals including elephants, hippos, zebras, ostriches, impala and water buffalo. An online hunting club claims he has killed six elephants.

It comes a week after Africa's most famous lion Cecil was killed by Minnesota Dentist Dr. Walter Palmer in early July, sparking international outrage.

A British banker who shot a lion on a ‘trophy hunting’ holiday should be stripped of his knighthood, animal rights campaigners demanded yesterday.

Tory donor Sir David Scholey, a former director of the Bank of England, posed by the bloodied corpse of a male lion he apparently shot for fun in Zambia – and even defended the killing.

Photographed in semi-darkness, apparently soon after the hunt, the millionaire leaned back against the dead animal’s body, while a wound on its side oozed blood.
