UNREAL, CRIMINALS TODAY HAVE NO FEAR …
KTVU reporter Cara Liu was attacked in broad daylight as she covered the fatal shooting that took place the night before on San Francisco’s Pier 14 on the Embarcadero. In the VIDEO below you can see her startled reaction as news crews are attacked by a robber in San Francisco on July 2, 2015 on LIVE TV. The reporters were attacked and robbed on live TV. According to reports, a masked man snuck up behind KTVU and KNTV reporters as they prepared to do live reports. The robber pointed a gun at KTVU Fox 2 cameraman Keith Crook and fled with his camera and tripod. Police described the three suspects as black males, all wearing dark clothing. At least one of the suspects had dreadlocks.
A brazen masked armed bandit robbed two news crews – including a crew from KTVU Fox 2 – early Thursday morning.
Crews from four Bay Area television stations were reporting on a fatal shooting on San Francisco’s Pier 14 on the Embarcadero that took place Wednesday night.
A man armed with a handgun and wearing a black mask approached the crews around 6 a.m. while KTVU Fox 2 reporter Cara Liu was preparing to go live for the KTVU Morning News.
As anchor Brian Flores went to Liu’s report, she is visibly distracted and looking off camera.
Nearby, the unidentified bandit was pistol-whipping KNTV cameraman Alan Waples and his equipment was being stolen.
So what makes this 4th of July so special …
The authorities are saying that there has been no specific, credible threat; however, they are warning of possible lone wolf terrorist acts this 4th o July weekend. As reported at CNN, as Americans get ready for the holiday weekend, the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center have issued a bulletin to law enforcement across the country warning of the possibility of an imminent strike against the United States. Intelligence agencies are watching as online chatter rises. But how is this different than past years? Could it possible be that ISIS, the so-called JV terrorist group as once stated by Barack Obama is now very active and successful in using social media to recruit “lone wolfs” to commit terror acts?
This 4th of July weekend, have fun, enjoy your time but be vigilant.
Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, American counterterrorism officials have increased security at national landmarks and large public events ahead of major holidays or significant anniversaries, and issued bulletins calling for increased vigilance by the public.
But this Fourth of July weekend has spawned particularly strong warnings about a potential attack as the federal authorities and national security experts say the United States is more susceptible now because of tactics chosen for recent terrorist strikes by the Islamic State.
Officials cite an increased effort by the Islamic State to galvanize its sympathizers in the United States and elsewhere since Memorial Day and during this Ramadan season to carry out acts of violence on their own — so-called lone-wolf attacks. Those potential plots by individuals are harder for the authorities to detect and disrupt, senior American officials say, and have led the F.B.I. to put more Americans under investigation for suspected ties to terrorist groups than at any point since Sept. 11.
At the same time, senior American officials acknowledge that, as with many past holidays and anniversaries, they know of no specific terror plot against targets in the United States. And while militants have said in previous years that they would like to pull off an attack on a major national holiday, there has not been a successful terrorist strike on American soil on a previous July 4 or similarly high-profile day.
One thing is for certain, if these radical Islamist terrorists ever attacked America on Independence Day, it would be their ultimate demise.
Missing Maricopa, Arizona Couple, 44 Year Old Michael Careccia & 42 Year Old Tina Careccia, Bodies Found … Jose Valenzuela Arrested & Charged with First Degree Murder
The bodies of missing 44 year old Michael Careccia and his wife, 42 year old Tina Careccia have been found in Maricopa, Arizona. The bodies were found on the property of 38 year old Jose Valenzuela in a 6 foot grave. Valenzuela reportedly confessed to the crime and has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He is being held on a $2 million cash bond. Valenzuela reportedly shot the victims with a .22 caliber handgun. Valenzuela claims that he and the couple have been acquainted for the past two years and used methamphetamine together. Michael Careccia and Tina Careccia went missing on 6/22/15. Investigators said Valenzuela brought meth to the couple’s home the day before they went missing, Father’s Day. Then they went to Valenzuela’s home later that day and Valenzuela brandished a weapon during a fight. Of course this is the comments of a man facing two counts of first degree murder. A toxicology will have to be done to confirm any of his comments.
A missing Phoenix-area couple were killed and buried in the yard of a man who told investigators he was high on methamphetamine at the time, authorities said Thursday.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Jose Valenzuela, 38, acknowledged killing Michael Careccia, 44, and his wife, Tina, 42.
“Essentially he confessed,” Babeu said at a news conference.
Valenzuela has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He is being held on a $2 million cash bond.
According to Babeu, Valenzuela was found with a .22 caliber revolver that authorities believe is the murder weapon.
Two bodies were recovered from Valenzuela’s property and identified as the couple, authorities said. The grave was not noticeable initially because the suspect had piled other debris and materials on top of it, Babeu added.
Jose Valenzuela claims a fight broke out after he had provided drugs to the couple. Read the story and see if it makes any sense or was Jose on meth at the time he confessed to authorities?
Valenzuela claimed he brought Michael and Tina Careccia the drug on June 21 and attended a Father’s Day party at the Carrecias’ home, Babeu said.
“Sometime later that evening … they went over to Valenzuela’s home, and something happened, a fight ensued and that’s when he brandished a weapon,” Babeu told reporters.
Valenzuela allegedly used a .22-caliber revolver to kill the couple. He shot Michael Careccia first, and then shot Tina Careccia sometime later, Babeu said. Investigators believe Valenzuela was high on drugs at the time of the killings.
The bodies were kept on the property, possibly in a shed, until Valenzuela borrowed a backhoe from an acquaintance and buried them in a six-foot deep grave, and their car was moved to a location away from the home, Babeu said.
On the eve of the 4th of July, America’s Independence Day … The LEFT is ruining this country.
According to a recent Gallup poll, only 54% of people say that they are “extremely proud” to be an American. This is down sharply following the 911 terror attacks in 2001 and the 70% who stated that they were extremely proud to be an American in 2003. The poll also showed that 27% say they are “very proud,” 14% say they are “moderately proud,” 4% are “only a little proud” and 1% state that they are “not at all proud.” The South is the most proud at 61%, then comes the Midwest, East and West at 55%, 50% and 46%, respectively.
Remember what Michelle Obama said in 2008, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country …”
So what is the reason why so many Americans are no longer extremely proud to be Americans? One would think that it could be a result of Barack Obama being President and his efforts to change America. But in looking at what parties say they are extremely proud to be an American. it is the Republicans at 68%, Independents at 53% and the Democrats bringing up the rear at 47%. So why are Democrats not proud? Is it because the Democrat party now resembles more socialism that the Democrat party of JFK?
As Independence Day approaches, most in the U.S. say they are proud to be an American, including a slight majority, 54%, who are “extremely proud.” The percentage saying they are “extremely proud” is slightly lower than in recent years and down from peaks at and around 70% between 2002 and 2004, after 9/11.
In addition to the 54% who are extremely proud to be an American, 27% say they are “very proud,” 14% say they are “moderately proud,” 4% are “only a little proud” and 1% state that they are “not at all proud.”
What is most telling of this Gallup poll is the age breakdown of those who say they are most proud to be an American. The younger the age demographic of this poll, the lower the level of being proud to be an American. With those who are 65 years of age and older, they are 64% “extremely proud” to be American, while the 18-29 crowd is at 43%. What else should we expect when they have been continually told be the LEFT, the liberal MSM, politicians, race-baitors and liberal politicians and educators that America is bad?
Once again we should send a shout out and a sarcastic thank you to the public schools and the liberal indoctrination that has passed for the education of children over the years. The liberals have successfully made the young not be proud of the country that provided them liberty and freedoms that they could never comprehend.

Baltimore Officials Finally Admit They Gave a Police Stand Down Order During Violent Riots following Death of Freddie Gray
THE CITY OF BALTIMORE IS ABOUT TO HAVE THE PANTS SUED OFF THEM AS OFFICIALS GAVE STAND DOWN ORDERS THAT CAUSED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGES TO PROPERTY …
Despite months of denials by top city officials, the Baltimore Sun is reporting that police officers trying to do their duty during the April riots that rocked the city were ordered not to engage the mob to protect businesses being threatened by violence, even when they were under direct attack themselves. The Baltimore Sun reports that police commanders now admit they told officers to “hold the line” and not engage rioters several times on the day of the funeral for Freddie Gray. The result was complete anarchy and the destruction, burning and looting of Baltimore.
This is what happens when you tell the police to stand down and give the rioters their space.
Baltimore police commanders acknowledge that they ordered officers not to engage rioters multiple times on the day of Freddie Gray’s funeral but said they did so to protect officers and citizens as they prioritized life over property.
In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts and six top commanders who directed deployments on April 27 denied that they gave blanket orders to do nothing as rioters looted, raided businesses and even attacked officers with impunity.
More than two months after riots broke out across Baltimore, top brass and rank-and-file officers continue to spar over how platoons of officers were deployed that day. About 160 officers were injured in the riots and businesses suffered millions of dollars in damage.
Batts has repeatedly denied issuing a “stand down” order — akin to ordering a withdrawal — while officers say they were in effect given such an order, either over the radio or in person, when they were told “do not engage” or “hold the line.”

TV Land Pulls Dukes of Hazzard TV Show from Its Schedule … Remember When it was OK to Just Watch TV?
THE UNITED STATES HAS OFFICIALLY LOST ITS PC MIND … WHO KNEW DAISY DUKE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EVILS OF RACISM.
Just when you thought liberal thought and political correctness could not get any worse in the United States, it did. Yesterday, TV Land pulled the TV show, ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off their programming schedule. In the wake of the church shooting in South Carolina and the agenda driven attack on the Confederate flag, the Dukes of Hazzard was made to be a scape goat in the out of control PC land we live in. UNREAL. So now an 80′s TV show that was a comedy is too offensive. As stated at RWN, Remember how ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ was a hotbed of racism and Confederate sympathy? Yeah. Me neither. Let this be a lesson to Americans that are apathetic and asleep at the wheel. Is racism a terrible thing and should the church shooter who killed 9 innocent black church goers an evil individual who should be put down like a rabid animal, yes. However, the LEFT had much more in mind and has exploited this terrible mass shooting for its own agenda.
Following the shootings in Charleston at the hands of a racist, Charleston and the families of the victims stood strong in unison against what Dylann Roof stood for and marched together. The families of those murdered even proclaimed they forgave Roof and prayed for him. For as much as what the good people of Charleston did and stood for following this heinous act, the same cannot be said who have acted in such a cowardly manner. Yes, that includes you TV Land.
TV Land has pulled reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard off its schedule, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to EW on Wednesday.
The network did not comment further or say why the episodes were removed, but the news comes as the show became part of the growing national debate over use of the Confederate flag, which is displayed on the roof of the Duke boys’ car.
Last week, Warner Bros. Consumer Products said it would no longer license toys or models of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, dubbed General Lee, joining a number of other retailers vowing to stop selling Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of the deadly shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, earlier this month.
So what’s next on the Liberals agenda to ban … Gone with the Wind? What other TV shows and movies will be found too offensive for the delicate constitutions of the LEFT? Hey, while you are at it, ban the move Glory, they showed Confederate flags in that one too. Does the LEFT even have a clue what the move was about?
Any TV network with a brain would buy the rights to the syndicated broadcasts of the Dukes of Hazzard and make a mint. At what point will there be a backlash to this over the top nonsense, much like what happened when the LEFT and gay activists tried to target Chick Fil-A?
Former President Jimmy Carter Says, Obama’s Successes on World Stage “Have Been Minimal” … “US’s Influence & Prestige & Respect in the World is probably Lower than it was 6 or 7 Years Ago.” (VIDEO)
JIMMY CARTER SAYS OBAMA HAS HAD MINIMAL SUCCESSES ON THE WORLD STAGE … I GUESS THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD.
Former President Jimmy Carter ripped Barack Obama in a recent interview stating that Obama’s successes on the world stage “have been minimal.” WOW, that says a lot coming from this disaster of a president on the world stage. Not only did Carter say that Obama’s accomplishments were minimal, he also stated that US influence and prestige in the world was lower than it was 6 or 7 years ago. But Carter doesn’t want to be called a racist so he says’ he doesn’t blame Obama for his failures on the world stage. Of course Obama isn’t to blame, why would anyone in the Democrat party hold him accountable for his failures? Um, then who is to blame, GWB? Or would it be Hillary Clinton’s fault? After all, Carter proclaimed John Kerry was “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
After proclaiming John Kerry “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had,” Carter dumped cold water on Obama’s record abroad.
“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”
“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.
