-War on Police-
Obama: Police Can 'Make the Job of Being a Cop a Lot Safer' by Admitting Their Failures
America's police will be safer when they admit they have a problem, Pres. Obama declared on Sunday at a bilateral event with the prime minister of Spain in Madrid.

Fielding a question on Sunday, July 10, about the violence against police in Dallas, Texas last week, which left five officers dead, Obama said police officers will be safer once they acknowledge their failures:

"There are legitimate issues that have been raised, and there's data and evidence to back up the concerns that are being expressed by these protesters.

"And if police organizations and departments acknowledge that there's a problem and there's an issue, then that, too, is going to contribute to real solutions. And, as I said yesterday, that is what's going to ultimately help make the job of being a cop a lot safer. It is in the interest of police officers that their communities trust them and that the kind of rancor and suspicion that exists right now is alleviated."

Greeeaaat... blame the victim. Classy. How many more dead cop's blood will be on this wank wastes hand's from this remark?

Forget Rule of Law and Cop Killings, GOP Reaches For Nuances on Race
ATLANTA (AP) -- Some prominent Republicans are speaking out about race, expressing empathy for the challenges faced by black Americans, after a spate of racially tinged gun violence that saw two black men killed by police and retaliatory attacks by a black sniper that killed five Dallas police officers.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and one of his predecessors, Newt Gingrich, have argued for frank conversations about race, citing some hurdles unique to African-Americans.

"It's important that we acknowledge ... there are people in this country who believe that because of their color of their skin, they're not as safe as everybody else," Ryan said recently on CNN.

Gingrich, among the finalists to be Donald Trump's vice presidential pick, said, it was "difficult" for white Americans to "appreciate how real" it is for black Americans to live in fear of a "situation where the police don't respect you and you could easily get killed."

#2  It seems fairly obvious to me that if you respect the police, they will not shoot you down like dogs. I believe a lot of the problem is that some people do not respect the police and get all up in their face. They think they are entitled to special treatment.

And the media feeds the hysteria.

#4  The problem that blacks have is best summarized by the one statistic. More than 70% of black children are raised by unmarried, single mothers. There are no fathers around and no role models.

#7  Left unstated is the fact that many black Americans have legitimate fears of easily getting killed, fears that have absolutely nothing to do with the police, and everything to do with their fellow black Americans. But we mustn't ever talk about this, oh no.

#10  Along the lines of my earlier post, in the CLE area tonight: 19-year-old man shot & killed at Euclid "Stop the Violence" party.
According to Euclid police, 200 to 300 people were gathered for the party on Lakeshore Blvd around 8 p.m. when unknown suspects opened fire and then fled the area on foot.

A 19-year-old Euclid man, identified as 19-year-old Phillip Banks, was shot in the head and killed. A 12-year-old boy was shot in the back. He was taken to a local hospital in unknown condition.

About an hour later, an 18-year-old Euclid man was walking in the area of 24000 Lakeshore Blvd when an unknown person fired multiple times at the victim from across the street. He was hit in the shoulder and taken to a local hospital in unknown condition.

Trump condemns killings of police overshadowing convention
[REUTERS] Donald Trump condemned the killings on Sunday of three Louisiana coppers as the fresh spasm of violence put a somber note on the opening of the Republican National Convention due this week to formally nominate him for the White House.

Trump seized on the shooting deaths of the officers in Baton Rouge to bolster his case that he is the better candidate in the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election to restore law and order than his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton
... sometimes described as The Heroine of Tuzla and at other times as Mrs. Bill, never as Another John Jay ...
"We grieve for the officers killed in Baton Rouge today. How many law enforcement and people have to die because of a lack of leadership in our country? We demand law and order."

Clinton had no immediate comment on the latest violence.
Nor could she...
There were no plans to delay Monday's start of the four-day Cleveland, kept in touch with the world by Obamaphone,
...was ruled by a Democrat machine from 1942 through 1971. After the river caught fire during the administration of Carl Stokes they tried a Republican, then went back to being Democrats when the party hacked up Dennis Kucinich ...
convention, where thousands of Republican delegates are gathering amid a threat of protests both for and against Trump, 70, a businessman-turned-candidate.

Security was extraordinarily tight with downtown streets lined by concrete traffic dividers and tall metal fences, propelled by a new urgency after an attacker drove his truck into a holiday crowd in Nice, La Belle France, last week, killing 84 people.

After Sunday's shootings in Baton Rouge, in which three other coppers were maimed, the head of Cleveland's police union asked Ohio Governor John Kasich to suspend state laws allowing people to openly carry firearms, but Kasich said he lacked the authority to do so.

#1  Cut and Paste from innernet:

Reuters left out the rest of the story...

STEVE LOOMIS, PRESIDENT OF CLEVELAND POLICE PATROLMEN'S ASSOCIATION: The president of the Untied States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the Media are pressing out there to the public — He validated with his very divisive statements And now we see an escalation.

This has got to end.

We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this.

I don’t care if it’s clergy or who it is but somebody has to step up and put an end to this. It’s false narrative and people politicizing the false narrative that we have a President of the United States and the governor of Minnesota making a statement less than one day after the police involved shootings.

Those police involved shootings are what absolutely has triggered in rash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across the country. It is reprehensible.

The president has blood on his hands and it will not be able to come washed off...

How the hell did we ever become the bad guys in this country? I can not imagine how we got here. It is the irresponsible reporting of the media and irresponsible statements from people who are credible - like the president, like celebrities.

Obama vows to ‘destroy’ ISIS after Bastille Day attack
[NYPOST] President B.O. pledged to "destroy" ISIS following the heinous terror attack at a Bastille Day celebration in La Belle France -- and used remarks to diplomats at the White House to defend his own legacy.
Yeah, yeah. Whoopdy do. If he meant it, he'd have done it already.
"We cannot give in to fear or turn on each other or sacrifice our way of life. We cannot let ourselves be divided by religion, because that’s exactly what the faceless myrmidons want," Obama said, pledging to be "vigilant" in defending security and liberty.

Obama urged the gathered diplomatic corps "to step back and reflect on what we are doing to eliminate this kind of chronic violence."

But sensing the end of his presidency, Obama pivoted to focus on legacy items he wants to be remembered by and not the terror acts that have become a near weekly occurrence.

"I want to thank so many of your countries for the partnership that we have forged, and the progress that we have achieved together over the past eight years: in rescuing the global economy and securing vulnerable nuclear materials, a comprehensive deal to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, halting the spread of Ebola and thereby saving countless lives..." Obama said.

"And through the efforts of many of you, we have continued to try to move beyond old conflicts supporting the transition to democracy in Burma, forging a new partnership in Vietnam, deepening our new chapter of engagement with the Cuban people, helping to support efforts in Colombia to end decades long-conflict. That’s the power of diplomacy."

Kerry: Reports The US Assisted Attempt To Overthrow Turkish Gov't Are ‘Utterly False'
[Daily Caller] Secretary of State John Kerry spoke Saturday evening with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and suggested any public reports of U.S. involvement in the failed coup attempt of the Turkish government are "utterly false."

Not only are they false, Kerry said, but they also harm relations between the U.S. and Turkey.

After receiving an update from Cavusoglu on the rapidly developing coup situation in Turkey, Kerry reiterated that the U.S. supports the "democratically elected government in Turkey." Kerry also urged Turkish authorities to respect due process and adhere to international obligations in its treatment of those involved in the coup and to make sure civilian life and property are protected. If Turkey needs additional assistance, Kerry added, the U.S. is prepared to help.

Champ Urges Americans to Tamp Down Divisive Inflamatory Rhetoric
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Confronting another killing of police officers, President Barack Obama on Sunday urged Americans to tamp down inflammatory words and actions as a violent summer collides with the nation's heated presidential campaign.

Obama said the motive behind Sunday's killing of three officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was still unknown. It was the latest in a string of deadly incidents involving law enforcement, including the police shooting of a black man in Baton Rouge and the killing of five officers in Dallas.

"We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies attacks on law enforcement," Obama said in remarks from the White House briefing room.

#2  July 2009 (six months after assuming the Presidency):

Obama continued, "I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That's just a fact."

But either way, it's not good. We have a president who either deliberately or out of sheer incompetence has been fanning the flames of a wild fire.
