BREAKING: Multiple Police Officers Have Been Shot In Philadelphia

Westlake Legal Group police-850054_1280-300x212 BREAKING: Multiple Police Officers Have Been Shot In Philadelphia police shooting philadelphia Front Page Stories Breaking Allow Media Exception 2019

There is an active shooter in Philly who has wounded at least four police officers and is firing at more as they approach the building where he has barricaded himself. According to NBC NEWS

Philadelphia police were shot at Wednesday afternoon after responding to a shooting incident in a North Philly neighborhood.

A large police presence responded to a shooting incident in a residential area of the Nicetown section of the city. One male shooter was still inside a residence in what police described as an active situation.

Officers took cover behind cars and blocked off surrounding streets as they were fired upon by the unidentified shooter.

A witness who lived close to the shooting told NBC Philadelphia that she heard a series of shots fired, what felt like 100 gunshots, and could smell what seemed to be gunpowder before police arrived to the scene. The unidentified woman told NBC Philadelphia that it felt “like a war.”

Reports also suggest that there might be hostages involved.

Our prayers are with all those first responders in Philadelphia.

Never let a crisis go to waste – that’s the number one rule of politics.

While America digs out from 3 mass shootings in the span of two weeks, Democrats fighting for their party’s nomination have taken the opportunity to weigh in on the chaos.

Beto O’Rourke didn’t mince words, directly calling Trump a racist and making his responsible for the shootings.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg was also quick to get in on the blame game, although slightly less pointed than Beto. The 2020 candidate said Trump’s rhetoric was responsible and that he encourages White nationalism.

“Yeah. I mean, at best he’s condoning and encouraging white nationalism … It is very clear that this kind of hate is being legitimized from on high.”

Multiple Reports Say El Paso Shooter Wrote Hate-Filled Manifesto

The primary suspect behind the mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart may have written a manifesto, multiple news outlets are reporting.

Reporters are basing this on statements from elected officials speaking to the press about what they know so far. Authorities, however, have not confirmed the alleged manifesto belongs to 21-year-old Patrick Crusius of Dallas.

At a late afternoon news conference, officials said the suspect, identified as a 21-year-old white man from the Dallas suburb of Allen, Texas, had posted a hate-filled manifesto before undertaking the shootings, in which at least 26 others were wounded.

A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that the suspect taken into custody was a Dallas-area man named Patrick Crusius.

The official was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

So far, there is no public confirmation that the manifesto referenced was indeed written by the Crusius. However, the reports on the document say that it was a far-right manifesto raging against immigration, among other issues. It was posted on an alt-right message board that is well-known for its trolling as it is its extreme views.

Despite there being no official confirmation that Crusius authored any such document, several politicians are speaking out about it.

At the news conference, U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar, a Democrat who represents the El Paso area, said more needs to be done to address hate.

“The manifesto narrative is fueled by hate, and it’s fueled by racism, bigotry and division,” Escobar said.

The FBI is investigating the claim, though there has so far been no word on when a determination will be made.

BREAKING: James Comey Referred for Prosecution, DOJ Responds

According to sources, via The Hill, James Comey was referred for prosecution by IG Horowitz in his yet to be released report on the handling of the Trump-Russia investigation.

Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz’s team referred Comey for possible prosecution under the classified information protection laws, but Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors working for Attorney General William Barr reportedly have decided to decline prosecution – a decision that’s likely to upset Comey’s conservative critics.

Yes, you read that right. He was referred for prosecution but won’t be prosecuted because of a lack of intent despite the fact that the report itself is said to fillet him for his actions.

This is the same James Comey who publicly said he leaked the memos on purpose to get a special counsel appointed. Apparently, that doesn’t qualify as intent somehow.

As many of us have speculated for years, there will be no justice here because no one in D.C. ever pays for their actions. Comey is part of the protected class and is treated as such.

There is a chance the sources are wrong here about prosecution, but that’s unlikely.

BREAKING: DOJ Releases Guidelines for Robert Mueller’s Testimony Before Congress

Robert Mueller by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

As I mentioned this morning, the #resistance are all hyped up about Robert Mueller is testifying on Wednesday in front of the House Judiciary committee. An honest assessment says this is going to be a big dud, with Mueller not straying outside of the bounds of his report. To do otherwise would break Mueller’s own word about the report being the full measure of his testimony. Any pronouncements of criminality, collusion, or obstruction would also completely undermine the report.

Now, we may have confirmation that Mueller is indeed going to offer absolutely nothing new.

This is the right move.

The DOJ owns that report. Mueller has no right to go before Congress with a bunch of baseless insinuations and claims outside of the job he was contracted to do. This will of course lead to lots of gnashing of teeth, but that doesn’t matter. The Democrats were going to complain about a cover up anyway, just as they’ve been doing for months.

Even more obvious is that this is what Mueller himself wants. He doesn’t want to be grilled or answer a bunch of questions outside the scope of the report. The DOJ is giving him the cover he needs now to basically tell them “I can’t answer that” more times than you can count.

In the end, this is going nowhere. Polling shows most of the country have moved on. No one cares about this topic anymore except Democrats desperate to keep their base in a frenzy. Trump is here to stay until at least January of 2021. Mueller isn’t changing that.

BREAKING: Hurricane Barry Makes Landfall, Immediately Weakens To Tropical Storm

Hurricane Barry has officially made landfall in Louisiana, though it’s already lost strength and become a tropical storm again.

The storm had reached sustained winds of 75 mph while in the Gulf, and was named a hurricane just hours prior to making landfall. However, shortly after reaching land, the storm began losing power and is currently showing sustained winds of 70 mph.

The National Hurricane Center has said that the slow movement of Barry will result in a lot of rain over Louisiana’s coast and further inland. Some parts of the state are looking at 20 or more inches of rain.

It will reach Lafayette, Louisiana, this evening and continue north, essentially heading up I-49, becoming a tropical depression along the way.

Though Tropical Storm Barry hasn’t yet reached Louisiana’s coastline, the people along the coast are already getting a glimpse of what is to come.

Rain and early signs of flooding are already hitting the coast, and there are reports that more than 60,000 residents along the coast are without power. The storm, however, isn’t expected to make landfall until late Saturday morning or early afternoon.

Barry is expected to become a full-fledged hurricane by then, though only right above the 74 mph threshold. Once on land, it’s expected to weaken back to a tropical storm before moving up into the Acadiana region of the state through Saturday afternoon and evening.

The remnants of the storm will hit north Louisiana Sunday before moving northeast.

The storm’s path has shifted several times late this week, which meteorologists say is due to the disorganized nature of the storm. It’s also a slow-moving storm, leading to increased worries of flooding such as was seen during Hurricane Harvey in Houston.

Areas of the state will see several inches of rain, and some areas in the southern part of the state are looking at 15 inches or more by the time the slow-moving system passes through.

Barry is the first storm to make landfall this hurricane season, which began on June 1.

Billionaire on Twitter Helping Those in Need, Enlists Donald Trump Help.

Finally, a feel-good story about Twitter after all the negative news we hear about it and from it. Including that lil spat over the newbies in the House of Representatives by the Speaker of said House over social media and Twitter in particular.

Earlier today on Twitter, Michigan billionaire Bill Pulte tweeted that he would give 30,000 dollars to a Veteran in need if the United States President and avid Twitter user Donald Trump would give an RT to this noble cause. You have to know already what POTUS did.

According to Fox 2 Detroit, this is something he hopes to encourage with others who can help those in need…

In a video Pulte, managing partner of Pontiac-based Pulte Capital Partners LLC, says he hopes this is the start of a new wave of philanthropy on the social media site.

“Twitter is so full of negative stuff these days, especially with the politicians, businessmen, political reporters all of this stuff,” Pulte said in a video. “It is about time we finally have something positive on Twitter. This website is huge, why are we not using that?”

Pulte also hinted that some of his rich friends have been waiting to see if this takes off before joining him in giving away money on Twitter. He hopes the president’s retweet encourages them to start.

Mr. Pulte is right.

We have allowed social media to devolve to the state that it is in today. Luckily we have someone such as Bill Pulte who is stepping up by his own hand and encouraging others that have his type of resources to do the same. Once you get a positive ball like this rolling you know that wherever it ends up peoples lives will be better for it.

Also as a side note, as one who lives in Michigan also, I can’t tell you how awesome it is that someone from my home state is helping lead the charge in this and creating something good using Twitter. You can follow @Pulte on Twitter or the hashtag #twitterphilanthropy.

Well done, sir.
