Just ahead of the first Republican primary debate this week, according to a recent NBC News/WSJ Poll, businessman Donald Trump has surged into the lead. Trump garnered 19% of the vote, while Jeb Bush was second with 14% followed by Ben Carson – 10%, Ted Cruz – 9%, Mike Huckabee – 6%, Rand Paul – 6% and Marco Rubio – 5%. Trump has bewildered the pundits and so-called political experts with his strong polling efforts. However, like him or hate him, the reason why Trump is resonating with so many Americans is because of his unfiltered, no-PC commentary. However, at some point he is going to have to present actual solutions and how he would do things, not just ripping the current political establishment.
Days before the first Republican debate, Donald Trump has surged into the national lead in the GOP primary race, with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush following, a new NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll shows.
Trump is the first choice of 19 percent of GOP primary voters, while 15 percent back Walker and 14 percent back Bush. Ten percent support retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
All other Republican candidates earn single digit backing. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is favored by nine percent of primary voters; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul are tied with six percent support; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio clocks in at five percent;
POLICE LIVES MATTER!!!
As I have always said, for the police, there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop. 33 year old Sean Bolton, who had been with the force since October 2010, was shot and killed Saturday night during a traffic stop. As Officer Bolton was conducting the traffic stop, he was shot by someone inside the vehicle he had pulled over. The incident took place at approximately 9:18 PM local time near Cottonwood and Perkins Roads Saturday night. Officer Bolton was taken to Regional Medical Center in critical condition, and later passed away. Bolton had been with the force since October 2010. The murder suspect is still on the run. Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Officer Sean Bolton and to the Men and Women in Blue of the Memphis,m TN police.
A manhunt was underway for a suspect who fatally shot a Memphis police officer during a traffic stop on Saturday evening, according to officials.

“The suspect responsible is still at large and officers are in the area attempting to locate him,” police said in a statement.
The slain officer was identified by the police department as 33-year-old Sean Bolton, who had been with the force since October 2010.
Armstrong said Saturday’s fatal shooting was the third time an officer has been killed in the last four years.
Bolton, who graduated from White Station High School in 1999, served a tour in Iraq. He studied political science at the University of Memphis.
Bolton served as best man at his brother Brian’s wedding at Woodland Presbyterian Church on Park Ave. on June 20. Less than two weeks after that wedding, Bolton’s father died on July 2, according to his Facebook page.

Back in my youth when I used to watch wrestling, Piper was one of my favorites. His actions were off the charts and he could go from bad guy to good guy on the wrestling mat with ease. Of course we know that professional wrestling is sports entertainment, but Rowdy Roddy Piper was a master of entertainment and during his era of wrestling was truly the Golden Age. Piper was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005. Roddy Piper is survived by his wife Kitty and their 4 kids, including 3 daughters and son Colton who’s pursuing a career in professional wrestling.

47 Year Old William H. Merideth Arrested for Criminal Mischief & Wanton Endangerment For Shooting Drone Down Over His Yard While Daughter was Sunbathing
REALLY, ITS A CRIME TO PROTECT YOUR DAUGHTER FROM PERVS?
The Washington Times is reporting that 47 year old William H. Merideth was arrested for first degree criminal mischief and wanton endangerment after he shot a drone out of the sky. Merideth claims the drone was hovering over his property while his daughter was sunbathing. Sorry, I would have probably done the same thing. In this day and age with the access of individuals to drones with video capability and the all-too voyeuristic our society have become, it should be considered an invasion of privacy. The owner of the drone claimed he was only trying to take pictures of a friend’s house. Sure you were. Sorry, but the person use of drones by irresponsible individuals has become nothing but a menace, just ask firefighters.
A Kentucky man shot down an $1,800 drone hovering over his sunbathing daughter and was then arrested and charged with first degree criminal mischief and first-degree wanton endangerment.
“My daughter comes in and says, ‘Dad, there’s a drone out here flying,’ ” William H. Merideth, 47, told a local Fox News affiliate reported Tuesday. The Bullitt County father shot at the drone, which crashed in a field near his yard Sunday night.
The owner of the drone claims he was only trying to take pictures of a friend’s house, the station reported.
“I went and got my shotgun and I said, ‘I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property,’ ” Mr. Merideth said, noting that the drone briefly disappeared when his daughter waved it off. “Within a minute or so, here it came. It was hovering over top of my property, and I shot it out of the sky. I didn’t shoot across the road, I didn’t shoot across my neighbor’s fences, I shot directly into the air.”
WDRB News spoke with Merideth Tuesday afternoon, and he gave his side of the story.
“Sunday afternoon, the kids – my girls – were out on the back deck, and the neighbors were out in their yard,” Merideth said. “And they come in and said, ‘Dad, there’s a drone out here, flying over everybody’s yard.’”
Merideth’s neighbors saw it too.
“It was just hovering above our house and it stayed for a few moments and then she finally waved and it took off,” said neighbor Kim VanMeter.
VanMeter has a 16-year-old daughter who lays out at their pool. She says a drone hovering with a camera is creepy and weird.
“I just think you should have privacy in your own backyard,” she said.
Merideth agrees and said he had to go see for himself.
“Well, I came out and it was down by the neighbor’s house, about 10 feet off the ground, looking under their canopy that they’ve got under their back yard,” Merideth said. “I went and got my shotgun and I said, ‘I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property.’”
That moment soon arrived, he said.
“Within a minute or so, here it came,” he said. “It was hovering over top of my property, and I shot it out of the sky.”
JUST CURIOUS, IS IT POSSIBLE TO PULL THE PLUG ON AN ENTIRE NETWORK?
As reported at The Politico, LSNBC, BSNBC, MSNBC is pulling the plug on three shows, “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show.” But is anyone going to miss them, no one watched the garbage in the first place. MSNBC President Phil Griffin says the moves was made to change the uber-liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics channel, at least in daytime. Now that’s funny, reporting straight forward, no liberal spin news. Who are they going to replace these failed shows with Bill O’Reilly?
Coming in September 2015, MSNBC will add a 5 PM program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor. Oh yeah, that will change the liberal slanted, moonbat network programming, adding lying Brian Williams to the mix. PLEASE!!!
MSNBC has formally decided to cancel three programs — “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show” — as part of a larger effort to shift its daytime lineup away from opinion programming, network sources told the On Media blog on Thursday.
Alex Wagner and Ari Melber, a “Cycle” co-host and MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, will remain with the network. Ed Schultz, the host of “The Ed Show,” will leave the network, as will “Cycle” co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Krystal Ball and Toure. MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced the news in a memo sent shortly after the initial version of this item was published.
The cancellations, which have been expected for some time, come as NBC News chief Andrew Lack moves to refashion the liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics offering, at least in daytime. In September, MSNBC will add a 5 p.m. program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor.
This move by MSNBC asks the age old question, If three TV shows are canceled that now one watched, did they ever exist in the first place?
As the Politicus USA opines, Ed Schultz won’t be the last liberal to be let go, it has been reported for months that Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Chris Hayes are also on the way out. One can dare to dream. As stated earlier, they could all be shown the door and no one would notice. There are private website that get more traffic than MSNBC.

Debris From Aircraft Discovered In Indian Ocean on Reunion Island, Believed to be That of Missing Malaysia Flight 370
HAS MALAYSIA FLIGHT 370 BEEN LOCATED?
After all this time, is it possible that the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has finally been found? Debris has been discovered on the French island of Reunion in the western Indian Ocean off the coast of Madagascar. If the debris found is that from Malaysia Flight 370, it will have been located some 3800 miles from where the plane was last spotted. The debris from the aircraft found was about six feet long and covered in barnacles. Malaysia Airlines flight 370 disappeared in March of 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Nearly 18 months since Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished, a 2.7m-long piece of debris discovered on Wednesday on the island of Réunion could finally provide clues to one of aviation’s great mysteries.
Investigators suspect the debris is a “flaperon”, a mix of a flap and an aileron.
To provide some context, see where the ill-fated Malaysian flight took off from and the subsequent search areas after the plane went missing.
Developing news in the Indian Ocean this Wednesday, where debris from an aircraft has been discovered.
A US official says investigators are extremely confident that it belongs to a plane that went missing more than a year ago.
The official says investigators identified the parts as being from the edge of a Boeing-777 Wing.
The same model as Malaysia Airlines flight 370 that disappeared in March of 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Investigators are now heading to the French island of Reunion in the western Indian Ocean for further inspection.
Authorities hunting for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 said Friday that they were “increasingly confident” the wreckage found on an Indian Ocean island was from the ill-fated jet, raising hopes of solving one of aviation’s great mysteries.
The two-metre long piece of wreckage is to be sent to France for analysis, with hopes high that it could turn out to be the first tangible proof the plane went down in the Indian Ocean.
Investigators are hoping they will then move closer to understanding the mystery swirling around the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, which vanished 16 months ago with 239 people aboard, most of them Chinese.
“We are increasingly confident that this debris is from MH370,” Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which is leading the MH370 search, told AFP.
“The shape of the object looks very much like a very specific part associated only with 777 aircraft.”

Illegal immigrant Juan Emmanuel Razo Previosuly Ordered Freed by Feds … Now Suspected of Rape and Murder in Ohio
IS THIS STORY STARTING TO SOUND ALL TOO FAMILIAR … WAS THIS GUY A DREAMER TOO?
35 year old illegal immigrant Juan Emmanuel Razo is under arrest after murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl. As if that does not sound bad enough as this individual had no business being in the United States, it gets worse, if possible. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told Ohio sheriff’s deputies weeks ago not to detain a man who is in the U.S. illegally. On July 7, Lake County sheriff’s deputies questioned Juan Emmanuel Razo after finding him alone in a car in Painesville, about 30 miles east of Cleveland. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told Ohio sheriff’s deputies weeks ago not to detain a man who is in the U.S. illegally because he had not committed a crime. Of course for some reason, being in the US is not longer considered being a crime. A note to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, how about now? Is it a crime to commit attempted murder, murder and rape? You have blood on your hands.
An illegal immigrant suspected of murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl was released earlier this month by Ohio sheriff’s deputies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told them not to hold him, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.
Juan Emmanuel Razo, 35, was arrested Monday after a shootout with police following a crime spree police say began with the attempted rape of a girl in a park in Painesville, about 30 miles northeast of Cleveland. He later shot a woman in front of her children and murdered a 60-year-old woman in nearby Concord Township, according to police. While Razo is being held on $10 million bond, authorities are trying to explain why he was allowed to remain in the U.S. illegally after local authorities questioned him just three weeks ago.
“I have somebody who we don’t know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder,” Painesville Municipal Court Judge Michael Cicconetti thundered at Razo’s arraignment, noting the suspect has no green card, birth certificate or driver’s license.
A detective said during the arraignment that Razo has confessed to the deadly, one-day crime spree in the quiet Lake Erie town. Police began seeking Razo late Monday morning after the girl described him to police and said he had tried to rape her. Hours later, he allegedly shot a 40-year-old woman in the arm as she walked with her two children along a bike path and an hour after that, a man told park rangers he’d found his wife, 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik, shot to death in their home near the bike path.
Razo has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 40-year-old woman Monday afternoon as she walked with her two children along a bike path in Concord Township. She was shot in the arm. Just over an hour later, a man told park rangers he’d found his wife, 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik, shot to death in their home near the bike path.
The Lake County coroner said Kostelnik was shot multiple times.
The manhunt for Razo began late Monday morning after a 14-year-old girl told police he had tried to rape her in another section of the park. The Lake County prosecutor said evidence in the slaying of Kostelnik and the attempted rape will be presented to a grand jury.
