It was like something straight out of a Three Stooges episode.
President Barack Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto — the so-called “3 Amigos” — were hoping to look like the North American tough guys after the earth establishment shaking Brexit vote last week.
Instead, they looked like Larry, Moe and Curly.
Hands were flying, left hands were shaking, other hands were just dangling, waiting for any touch from a fellow leftist — it was almost as if someone’s hand was going to windmill and hit somebody else on top of the head.
Indiana’s Fountain County Sheriff’s Department is mourning the loss of an officer who died while tracking three robbery suspects near Danville, Illinois.
Sheriff’s officials posted about “the passing of K9 Tyson” on the department’s Facebook page Monday.
The five-year-old German Shepard had worked for the department for four years with Deputy Andrew Krout and was called out earlier this week to track three men who allegedly robbed a Danville, Illinois Walgreens at gunpoint, Fox 59 reports.
“During this search, K9 Tyson developed minor heat exhaustion which developed into a critical case of heat exhaustion due to high outside temperature and humidity,” according to the sheriff’s department Facebook post.
“He was transported via ambulance (emergent) to the local vet office, where he was being monitored regularly by great hands. Unfortunately, K9 Tyson developed complications and ultimately succumbed.”
The media is loving Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump in the national polls, but she still lags among the voting blocs that put President Obama in the White House.
Obama’s “coalition of the ascending” was responsible for getting him elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2012.
His campaign focused on massive support and turnout among millennials, blacks, and women. Despite their inclinations toward the Democratic Party, they don’t find themselves nearly as supportive for Clinton as they were for Obama in ’12.
Four of the most recent polls tracked by Real Clear Politics that breakdown voters support along the lines of race, gender and age, show a substantial decline in support for Clinton, compared to Obama’s numbers in 2012.
Is the prospect of losing to Donald Trump — after narrowly defeating a 74-year-old socialist senator — frazzling the Hillary Clinton campaign?
Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, sent an email early this morning begging for donations and fearing she may not reach her June fundraising goal.
I don’t want to be hyperbolic — but I do want to be honest with you about where we are. And the truth is, as of today, we’re 130,000 donations short of our goal.
This goal isn’t some kind of generic oh-it-would-be-nice-to-get-there sort of thing. You know that’s not how we do things on this campaign.
This is about actual projections and budget decisions: If we don’t raise what we thought we would for June before tomorrow at midnight, we’re going to have to make some difficult calls about where our funding goes in key battleground states, whether to hire more organizers or cut back, or whether to set up that next field office.
Photos of worn American flags treated like garbage at the Rhode Island Veterans Cemetery – heaped in piles on the ground and stuffed in bags for disposal – ignited outrage online, and forced state officials to take action.
Stan Sniezyk told WPRI he noticed the neglected and worn flags next to a dumpster and in an open storage shed when he visited his father’s grave last weekend, and decided to snap pictures of the disgrace and post them to social media.
“It just broke my heart because everyone in this cemetery fought under that banner and every fiber of that flag is their blood, sweat and tears,” he said.
“My father fought under that banner,” Snyezyk told ABC 6. “And to see them like that is an absolute disgrace …”
Snyzyk posted the pictures to Facebook Sunday with a message: “So, this is what happens to the used American flags at the Rhode Island veterans cemetery that have been donated by family members of the deceased veterans.
Greeley resident Samuel Adams put an American flag up on his apartment complex balcony, then the apartment manager ordered him to take it down.
The incident didn’t sit well with Adams, whose father and grandfather served in the Armed Forces, and he vented his frustrations in an online video that’s since gone viral, the Greeley Tribune reports.
In the video, posted to Facebook and YouTube, Adams identified himself as a resident of Sterling Heights Apartment complex in Greeley, Colorado, and explained that he decorated his balcony in anticipation of the July 4 holiday.
