U.S. Swimmer Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger & Jimmy Feigen Robbed at Gunpoint in Rio at Olympics

RYAN LOCHTE AND THREE OTHER U.S. SWIMMERS ROBBED AT GUNPOINT IN RIO

NBC News is reporting that U.S. Olympic swimmers Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen were robbed at gunpoint at the Rio Olympics. According to accounts, the four U.S. Athletes left France House early Sunday morning in a taxi headed for the Olympic Village. Their taxi was stopped by individuals posing as armed police officers who demanded the athletes’ money and other personal belongings. This is interesting, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said that the U.S. Committee denied the crime. The investigation is in progress.”

Following conflicting reports — including the IOC denying any incident took place — Lochte himself confirmed with TODAY’s Billy Bush that he and the other swimmers were robbed at gunpoint.

“We got pulled over, in the taxi, and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing just a police badge and they pulled us over,” Lochte said. “They pulled out their guns, they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground — they got down on the ground. I refused, I was like we didn’t do anything wrong, so — I’m not getting down on the ground.

“And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said, ‘Get down,’ and I put my hands up, I was like ‘whatever.’ He took our money, he took my wallet — he left my cell phone, he left my credentials.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) States Hillary Clinton Discussed Executed Iranian Scientist Shahram Amiri on Email Hosted on Her Private Server (VIDEO)

AND YOU THINK THAT HILLARY CLINTON SHOULD BE PRESIDENT, EH?

Over the weekend Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) stated on CBS’ Face the Nation that Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason.  Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program. Yup, this is exactly how reckless Hillary Clinton truly is. With such a lack of judgement about America’s secrets as Secretary of States, how the hell does this woman deserve a promotion to be president?

 Tom Cotton on CBS’s “Face the Nation” – August 8, 2016

The Washington Examiner:

Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” he said on “Face the Nation.” Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program.

The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe.

“That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe,” he said.

Iran confirmed on Sunday that Amiri had been hanged for treason. He was convicted of spying charges in a death sentence case that was upheld on appeal, according to the Associated Press.

Thousands of German Protesters Take to the Streets Saying Chancellor Merkel ‘Must Go’ and Her Open Borders Immigration Policies

GERMAN PEOPLE RISE UP AGAINST CHANCELLOR MERKEL AND HER OPEN BORDERS IMMIGRATION POLICIES

Chancellor Angela Merkel finds herself in a precarious situation as the German people march in the streets and demand that “SHE MUST GO.”  This is in response to her ‘open-door’ policy that many have blamed for four brutal terrorist attacks that left 13 dead over the last month. Three of the attackers were among 1.1 million who entered as refugees as part of Merkel’s open door policy. But what does Merkel do, defends her policy as innocent Germans are murdered.  This is what happens when you have open borders and let not only terrorists into your country, but also individuals who have no intention of ever assimilating to your culture.

  1. Suicide bomber in Germany pledged allegiance to ISIS leader.
  2. 21year old Syrian refugee hacks PREGNANT woman to death with machete and injures two others before hero BMW driver runs him over in yet another attack in Germany.
  3. ISIL flag found in room of German train attacker.

Guess what America, this is what is in sore for the United States as well as Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton want to do the same and bring in unvetted refugees from parts of the world that hate the US and where ISIS has stated that they will infiltrate the refugee population.

Merkel on the ropes: Thousands of German protesters take to the streets saying she ‘Must Go’ and a key coalition ally withdraws support to open-door immigration policy after terror attacks

  • Thousands to gather in towns and cities across Germany today at 3pm
  • They are calling for her resignation over open door immigration policy
  • Comes after four brutal attacks leaving nearly a dozen dead in one week
  • Three of the attackers were among 1.1million who entered as refugees

Merkel’s premiership is hanging by a thread today as thousands gathered to call for her resignation while a key political ally dramatically withdrew his support over immigration policy.

More than 5,000 protested in Berlin and thousands more throughout Germany over the ‘open-door’ policy that many have blamed for four brutal terrorist attacks that left 13 dead over the last month.

The Chancellor faced a fresh wave of fury after it emerged that two recent terror attacks and a third killing were carried out by men who entered the country as refugees.

Hot Air Balloon Carrying 16 People Crashes in Lockhart, Texas … There Are No Survivors

TERRIBLE …

A hot air balloon carrying at least 16 people caught fire and crashed in a field in central Texas, IN Lockhart, Saturday morning. According to reports, there were no survivors.  The Associated Press stated that the balloon was operated by Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloon Rides, which is based in New Braunfels, outside of San Antonio.

A hot air balloon carrying at least 16 people caught fire and crashed in a field in central Texas Saturday morning, officials said, adding that there were no survivors.

Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety told the Austin American-Statesman newspaper that 16 people were killed when the balloon crashed in Lockhart, about 30 miles south of Austin.

However, federal investigators would not confirm the exact number of deaths. Erik Grosof of the National Transportation Safety Board would only say that there were “a number of fatalities.”

Caldwell County Sheriff Daniel C. Law told The Associated Press that it’s the kind of situation where people can walk up and buy a ticket, unlike an airplane, which would have a list of names.

Late Saturday, two officials told the Associated Press that the balloon was operated by Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloon Rides, which is based in New Braunfels, outside of San Antonio. Local media outlets identified the pilot as Skip Nichols, who owned the business and was believed to be in his late-40s.

On a personal note, my hearts and prayers go out to those lost and their families, but I also have to ask the question … 16 people aboard a hot air balloon? I have honestly never heard of so many people aboard a balloon at one time. Could there have been too much weight on board that made it impossible for the balloon to ascend high enough to avoid the high tension lines?

UPDATE I: Newlyweds, a preschool teacher, a young mother among the 16 dead in worst hot air balloon crash in US history.

The newlyweds of just six months boarded the big, rectangular basket early Saturday morning, anticipating a hot air balloon ride that would float them high over the pasture lands of rural Lockhart, Texas, just as the sun peaked above the horizon.

It was a birthday present from her to him, according to reports, one Matt and Sunday Rowan, both 34, had had a hard time scheduling.

Saturday finally fit.

The couple met the Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloon Rides pilot and 13 other passengers in a Walmart parking lot at 5:45 a.m., officials said, then traveled to an airpark for their 6:45 a.m. departure. The crew was delayed by about 20 minutes.

Soon they took off, dangling below a red, white and blue balloon, large yellow faces smiling out from the design.

UPDATE II: Texas Hot Air Balloon Likely Hit Power Lines Before Crash.

 A hot air balloon that crashed in Texas, killing all 16 people on board, likely hit power lines before it plummeted to the ground, the National Transportation Board said Sunday.

A fire broke out on the balloon but it was not clear whether this happened before or after it hit the electrical wires near the town of Lockhart on Saturday, NTSB board member Robert Sumwalt said.

Investigators have gathered 14 of the victims’ recording devices — including cellphones, cameras and an iPad — and hope to piece together what happened. Sumwalt asked that any witnesses also turn over any videos or pictures they may have taken before the crash.

Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloon Rides has a Better Business Bureau rating of D+ and a Yelp rating of 1.5 stars, mostly due to complaints about canceled and rescheduled flights.

The type of balloon that crashed Saturday has been involved in at least one other accident since 2011, according to the NTSB’s Sumwalt.
