An Animal Rights Activist Beaten Upside His Head With a Duck by a Spanish woman defending the Catalonia’s ‘Duck Chase’ Tradition

 

THIS MIGHT BE THE CRAZIEST STORIES YOU NEVER HEARD …

From the UK Daily Mail comes the following story that might be one of the most bizarre of 2015. Forget about running with the bulls, how about swimming with the ducks!!! An animal rights activists was clubbed upside his head by a Spanish woman in a white bathing suit during the annual Catalonia’s ‘Duck Chase’. So as this tradition goes, the ducks thrown into Mediterranean, then recaptured by swimmers. The incident took place after a woman, seen in the below video in a white bathing suit was confronted by an animal rights activist. She then started beating the dude with the duck.

Obviously, I hope the duck was not hurt, but what a sight that must have been. Please, oh please, does any one have video on that? Those folks in Spain have an awful lot a free time on their hands.

This is the shocking moment an animal rights activist was beaten around the head with a duck by a Spanish woman defending one of the country’s most controversial traditions.

The woman struck the man with the bird while he was filming the annual ‘duck chase’ in the seaside town of Roses in north eastern Spain.

Every August ducks are thrown into the Mediterranean and then caught and brought back to the shore by swimmers as part of the festival.

The footage shows a young woman wearing a white bathing suit attack the man with a duck – holding it by the legs as she repeatedly lashes him with it.

As the attack goes on, animal rights activists gathered on the shore can be heard chanting, ‘You would not do that to your dog,’ before they were removed by police.

Have They Had Enough .. Are Democrats Turning on Hillary Clinton … Former Dem. Presidential Candidate Dean Says, “As I was watching that tape, I was thinking to myself, this is a lawyerly answer.”

 

HAVE THE DEMOCRATS HAD ENOUGH OF HILLARY CLINTON AND HAS SHE GONE JUST ONE SCANDAL TOO FAR?

It is is not the GOP that Hillary Clinton needs to worry about, it is the Democrats. Hillary already came to the dance with a lot of baggage, now the current email/private server scandal has gone from a so-called partisan witch hunt to a full scale scandal being investigated by the feds. Hillary sees her poll numbers drop as no one except her true-believers this she is honest or trustworthy. So the question now is, are the Democrats turning on Hillary before its too late?

Enter Joe Biden to rescue the Democrat party, are you kidding me?

hillary-clinton what emails

What difference does it make if I am incapable of telling the truth?

With the specter of Vice President Joe Biden jumping into the 2016 race for the White House, some prominent figures in the Democratic party seem less sure of Hillary Clinton’s chances at clinching the party’s nomination.

Notable Democrat California Gov. Jerry Brown weighed in Sunday on the possibility of Biden’s run, saying if he were in the vice president’s position, he would give “very serious consideration” to the 2016 contest.

“All I can say is, if I were Hillary, I would say [to Biden], ‘Don’t jump in,’” Brown told NBC News. “If I were Joe Biden, I’d probably give it very serious consideration.”

Joe Biden’s political star has risen in recent weeks, with his national poll numbers climbing despite his unofficial status as a potential candidate. In a move that could signal more earnest consideration of a run, Biden this weekend met privately with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a progressive policy leader of the Democratic party.

Still, Dean questioned the way the former secretary of state has handled the controversy.

“As I was watching that tape, I was thinking to myself, this is a lawyerly answer,” Dean said, seemingly in reference to Clinton’s responses when asked by the press about classified information. “And one of the problems is that Hillary Clinton is an incredibly smart lawyer.”

A Clinton opponent for the Democratic nomination, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, said Sunday that while he’s eager to debate the issues, he considers the GOP’s questions about Clinton’s email server to be “legitimate.”

Three Americans & One Brit Receive France’s Highest Honor, the Legion of Honor, for Thwarting Train Terror Attack (VIDEO)

 

President François Hollande of France awarded the Legion of Honor, France’s highest award, to 23 year old Airman First Class Spencer Stone, 22 year old Alek Skarlatos, a specialist in the Oregon National Guard, and their friend 23 year old Anthony Sadler for their role in stopping a gunman on a high-speed train traveling to Paris from Amsterdam on Friday.  Also receiving the honor was 62 year old Chris Norman, a British consultant who helped subdue the gunman.  President François Hollande praised the men as heroes and “an example for many and a source of inspiration”.

“One need only know that Ayoub El Kahzani was in possession of 300 rounds of ammunition and firearms to understand what we narrowly avoided, a tragedy, a massacre,” Mr. Hollande said at the ceremony, referring to the suspect in the attack, a Moroccan who is in police custody and denies that he had planned to stage a terrorist attack.

“Your heroism must be an example for many and a source of inspiration,” Mr. Hollande added. “Faced with the evil of terrorism, there is a good, that of humanity. You are the incarnation of that.”

CNN:

They grew up together, fought off an attacker together and accepted a nation’s honor together.

Three days after they pounced and subdued a gunman aboard a packed train, American childhood friends Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos got the Legion of Honor — France’s highest recognition.

Fellow British passenger Chris Norman, who helped tackle the gunman, also received the award during Monday’s ceremony at the Élysée Palace.

“By their courage, they saved lives,” President François Hollande said. “They gave us an example of what is possible to do in these kinds of situations.”

The four stopped a potential massacre Friday aboard the high-speed train headed from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Paris.

“Three Americans and one Englishman … you risked your lives to defend an ideal, the ideal of liberty and freedom,” Hollande said.

Former State Department Officials Say Hillary’s E-mail Defense is ‘Total BS’

 

Hillary Clinton’s email defense is as I like to refer to … “Bovine Scatology”.

It appears that others are calling BS on Hillary Clinton and her excuses with the email/private server scandal. Former State Department security officials are calling Hillary Clinton’s email defense total bull $hit. Any secretary of state should have known better. It would appear that Hillary’s excuses are wearing thin with ex-state department insiders. This scandal is far from a right-wing conspiracy witch hunt that Ms. Clinton would have every one believe. It just will not go away. Why, because it has merit and legs. For the first time I am actually believing that this might just sink her presidential run.

Hillary Clinton_BS

Former State Department security officials don’t buy Hillary Clinton’s latest alibi that she couldn’t tell that government e-mails — which she improperly, if not illegally, kept for several years on an unsecured home server — contained top-secret information because they lacked official markings and weren’t classified until later.

Such messages contain sensitive “keywords” distinguishing them from unclassified information, even if the material didn’t bear a classified heading as she claims.

The secretary would have known better, the department ­officials say, because she was trained to understand the difference when she was “read in” on procedures to ID and handle classified information by diplomatic-security officials in 2009.

Clinton also went through a so-called “read-off” when she left ­office in 2013. In that debriefing, security officials reminded her of her duty to return all classified documents, including ones in which the classification status is “uncertain,” which would have included the e-mails stored on her private server — which she only this month turned over to authorities. The read-off would have included her signing a nondisclosure agreement.

Two U.S. Marines Wounded After Stopping Islamist Terror Attacker on French Train in Belgium (VIDEO) (Update: Gunman ID’d as Ayoub el Khazzani)

 

HEROES: US Marines always at the ready …

Two U.S. Marines were reportedly wounded after they stopped an Islamist terror attacker aboard a French train traveling through Belgium. The terror suspect was wielding a box cutter and an AK-47. The suspect opened fire aboard the train injuring several individuals. CNN International reports, the struggle was brief, bloody and chaotic as three Americans ,  a civilian, an Air Force member and a National Guard member,  jumped into action and quickly tackled the suspect preventing a most certain massacre aboard the train.

They have yet t officially call this an act of terrorism; however, if it walks like a duck … The suspected gunman, a Moroccan national, was on the radar screen of European counterterrorism agencies for his radical jihadist views, the European counterterrorism official said.

The train was speeding through Belgium when the man emerged from the train bathroom, shirtless with a rifle — possibly an AK 47 — slung over his shoulder, the Americans said.

The three men — a member of the Air Force, an inactive National Guard member and a civilian — responded quickly, possibly preventing a deadly attack on the high-speed Thalys train.

The suspect had a box cutter or some other bladed weapon, authorities said.

“My friend Alek (Skarlatos) yells, ‘Get him,’ so my friend Spencer (Stone) immediately gets up to charge the guy, followed by Alek, then myself,” Anthony Sadler said in an interview with CNN.

“The three of us beat up the guy,” Anthony said. “In the process Spencer gets slashed multiple times by the box cutter, and Alek takes the AK away.

Dramatic footage shows aftermath of French train attack

UPDATE I: The Telegraph – Hero off-duty soldiers and British IT worker describe beating French train terrorist unconscious.

Chris Norman, the British man on board the train who helped tie up the attacker, has praised Spencer Stone’s bravery in helping an injured passenger who he said had been shot, even though he was badly injured himself.

He told reporters: “Once we had actually finally been able to get the guy under control, then Spencer, who is Alek’s friend, went to help the guy who had been shot, because there was a person who had actually taken a bullet wound and he was losing a lot of blood.

“So Spencer, he had a couple of cuts in the back of his neck, and his thumb was nearly cut off, actually probably saved the life of the other guy as well.

“So, it was really amazing. I think Spencer is the real hero of this.

“He was the guy who got up – Spencer first, Alek, Anthony, and then I came in at the end of it.”

UPDATE II: Correction, Three Americans are heroes in preventing terror attack on train.

In any case, the actions of U.S. Airman First Class Spencer Stone, of Sacramento, Oregon National Guard Spc. Alek Skarlatos, and Anthony Sadler, a Sacramento State University student described as a longtime friend of Stone’s, meant there was no worst case scenario.

And so Aug. 21, 2015 will not join the list of dates of horrific carnage that have come to be associated with modern terrorism. It will not be recalled as the deadliest attack since Sept. 11, 2001, or simply 9/11, which it could well have been. It won’t be remembered as deadlier than 11-M, the March 11, 2004, terror attacks on commuter trains in Madrid, Spain, that left 191 dead. It won’t eclipse the carnage of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris earlier this year, which began on Jan. 7 and ended Jan. 9, and left 17 victims and three attackers dead.

UPDATE III: Gunman Identified as Ayoub el Khazzani.

Former President Jimmy Carter Discusses His Cancer: Doctors Found “Four Spots of Melanoma” on His Brain

 

Jimmy Carter, the former President of the United States, held a press conference yesterday and discussed his bout with cancer, Carter stated, that along with having a cancerous tumor on his liver that has since been operated on, doctors had also found four small spots of melanoma on his brain. The former 90 year old president further went on to detail how the cancer was discovered and his upcoming treatments.

Jimmy Carter spoke plainly when he said Thursday that doctors had found “four spots of melanoma” on his brain. The 90-year-old former president was relaxed and matter-of-fact as he talked about the uncertainty he faces. “I’m perfectly at ease with whatever comes,” he said.

Flanked by family members and friends at a news conference at the Carter Center in Atlanta, he detailed the treatments that he has already begun and will continue in coming weeks, including radiation and the IV infusions of a new type of anti-cancer drug that tries to harness the body’s immune system to fight the disease.

All politics aside because trust me, Jimmy Carter was the second worst president in modern times, we with him our prayers and a speedy recovery.

Ferguson, MO: 9 Year Old Jamyla Bolden Shot Dead as She Was doing Homework on Her Mother’s Bed … Do Black Lives Matter?

 

DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER IN FERGUSON, OR IS IT JUST WHEN THEY ARE KILLED BY THE POLICE?

9 year old Jamyla Bolden was shot dead as she was doing homework in her home as she laid on her mother’s bed. Jamyla was a fourth grader at Koch Elementary School. The incident took place at about 9:30 Thursday night in the 9200 block of Ellison in Ferguson, Missouri.  The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the site where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014. What a tragic and sad story about the death of a child who was simply just doing home work. Her mother also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.

Jamyla Bolden

For the Black Lives Matter crowd, this is what you should be concerning yourself with. But alas, there are no cops, and white ones at that, to blame. Only most like gang members. You would protect when a thugs who attempt to attack a police officer or stupidly points a gun at police and wind up dead, imagine that? But for an innocent young girl you are silent. What’s the matter Rev’s Al and Jessee, not enough race-baiting in this tragic situation?

Ferguson police are searching for clues about the killing of a 9-year-old girl who was shot when someone fired into a home where she was doing homework on her mother’s bed.

No arrests have been made in Tuesday night’s fatal shooting of Jamyla Bolden and police don’t yet know if the home was targeted or the shots were random, Ferguson Sgt. Dominica Fuller said Thursday.

Jamyla’s mother, 34, was struck in the leg and treated at a hospital.

“You have a 9-year-old child on her mother’s bed doing homework and a bullet strikes her,” Fuller said. “Our concern is to get this person off the street.”

The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the site where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014, sparking sometimes violent protests.

Fuller, herself the mother of a 9-year-old, was among the first officers at the home after the shooting, which was reported just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. She said police did all they could to help the child, to no avail.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan Says Hillary Clinton’s Private Emails Violated Policy

 

This is hardly a partisan political issue as Hillary Clinton would like you to believe …  Federal Judge says, “We wouldn’t be here today if this employee had followed government policy,”

Things keep getting worse and worse for Hillary Clinton as she sinks deeper in the private email server quick sand. A federal judge has added a little fuel to the already out of control burning Hilary email/private server fire asserting during a hearing Thursday that she violated government policy by storing official messages on a private server when she worked as secretary of state. The federal judge stated, “We wouldn’t be here today if this employee had followed government policy.” This took place during a FOIA hearing with Judicial Watch and Hillary’s attorneys.  The federal also ordered the State Department to confer with the FBI and Department of Justice to find out if those agencies had recovered any additional Clinton emails from the server and a thumb drive that was turned over by her attorney earlier this month.

Emails, what emails?

A federal judge has added fresh fuel to the incendiary controversy over Hillary Clinton’s email, asserting during a hearing Thursday that she violated government policy by storing official messages on a private server when she worked as secretary of state.

“We wouldn’t be here today if this employee had followed government policy,” said U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, apparently referring to Clinton, during a hearing on one of the many Freedom of Information Act lawsuits seeking access to her records as secretary of state.

Sullivan’s said Clinton’s actions had complicated the State Department’s ability to respond to requests for records on various topics. He also ordered the State Department to contact the FBI to determine whether the private server Clinton used, which Clinton turned over to that law enforcement agency earlier this month, contains official records possibly responsive to the FOIA suit.

This scandal is going to dog Hillary until 2016, if she lasts that long.
