Trump: "I lost 100's of friends" in the World Trade Center

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- It appears from news investigations and just pounding the streets, that President Trump's long overdue "mourning" of his lost friends, he never attended not one of his dear friends services or memorials.  Not one name of any of his 100 friends that perished that horrible day, not one name can President Trump produce from that time. -KHS

Jeronimo Yanez - Poster boy for really "Sick and Scared" Cops in St. Anthony MN

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- This writer does not know to much about you Mr. Jeronimo Yanez, except that you are the "poster child of the month" for bad cops everywhere.  What is the breakdown for these "killings" is that the Police Do Not Listen -- their ears are closed off.  Their "Heat of the Moment" is created by their fear.  They create this madness and then place the blame on others.  Hell it's easier to do just that. . . create the problem and kill some too.

You can tell them the true and comply with their demands and, they will straight up and down lie and write in down that way.  Except, the cameras do not lie.  Without prejudice -- the camera continues to record what is happening without bias to either side.  Yet, the police manage to lie their way out of these situations every time.

Mr. Yanez, you really need to go back where you came from with a knife in your in your chest to cut out your heart.  I have been writing about these rogue cops with guns for over twenty years, and it keeps getting worst.  

If you are a person of color driving in the United States of America -- or walking in the United States of America-- you are a target!!

America Blacks are at the point where the Nazi's of Germany started rounding up the Jews and everyone else just because of their color.   Have the Afro-American community become like barn animals to be rounded up and disposed off in prisons and murdered in the name of JUSTICE!  THIS IS IN-JUSTICE.  This is not the America I know and served in the military for.  How many years must I go on writing about these in-justices?  How many more times, must this writer document another crazy cop that is "SCARED".  Why are "you scared cops" with guns and a bad attitude -- on the police force?  Get yourself another job and be happy.  Because the job that you have now does not suit you at all.

This writer fines that the majority of Afro-Americans are law biding citizens, businessmen and women, teachers, contractors, fathers, brothers and sisters, with many young Black women dying the jail cells all across this country without very little press.  

Blacks contribute Billions of dollars to the economy and make Billions of dollars for industry.  Yet, we are targets all the time.  There are stories about then Attorney General Eric Holder on a run in Washington, D.C., and was stopped and harassed by the police.  They did not even know the person they stopped -- was their own boss, and the Number #1 Cop in the nation, and yet he is treated with discuss, disrespect  and contempt.

"It's really --  "JUST- US". . . Don't fall for that you are apart of America stuff.  If you are a person of color and living in America -- YOU ARE A TARGET!! 

The largest members of the National Rifle Association (NRA) should be the black community.  You are going to die if you don't have a gun. . . so die with a gun in your hand.  

With this "WHITE IS RIGHT" mentally from the police, we fine one thing time and time again in history, is that the police is always the point guard for carrying out "JIM CROW LAWS" with the dogs and water hoses, and now it's still the same old dogs and the racist cops that love to kill. 

As crazy as it gets, the NRA has said nothing about this crime.  What should we do about the city of St. Anthony, Minnesota?  It's obvious that their citizens do not give a damn about their fellow citizens and continue to hire racist persons to be police in their "Fair" city.  

St. Anthony is not apart of the America I know.  It is the tip of the iceberg for total "targeting" of persons of color.  The fatal shooting of Philando Castile by Jeronimo Yanez who lied even with the police cameras rolling and recording what really happen.  Yet, he was acquitted for killing a person, because he was "Scared".

"There is a disturbance in the force, Luke Skywalker." 

The rubber band has been stretched to the limit, and the reaction force will be to much and will tear this country apart.  If you believe that the Civil War was something. . . the next chapter in American history -- will be like the scenario in the movie 'The Postman".  It can go there in an instance.  

Mr. Yanez' life will be great.  He will get endorsements from the likes of every race hater in the country.  They will lift him high as a big fat balloon rising into the air.  Mr. Yanez will be hailed as the new leader of death.

This writer will not praise Mr. Yanez, but will only place a sharpen pin into his doll likeness and ask the gods for your destruction.  The only right thing to do is let Mr. Yanez live. . .and be hailed as a hero for killing young black men, killing fathers of color with their children watching.  

So you want "US" to like you and respect the Police?  For what?  You are the ones that perpetrate death and destruction and yet you want to blame the citizens and ask US to be one with the police.  

You are the poison -- Mr. Yanez, 

I hope that you will burn in hell and that you live a very long long life and have nightmares that drive you to jump off a bridge -- any bridge -- head first and put yourself out of your miserable existence.  No disrespect to the great police officers in this country who do their jobs.

Mr. Yanez, Sir you are the poster boy for really "Sick and Scared" cops.  You really made a very bad career choice.  It's obvious that you cheated on your "Personality Examination".  Maybe, you should have gone for the street sweeter position. . . and again maybe not.  You can't be trusted with government equipment. - KHS

5 Disturbing Statements By The Cop Who Shot Philando Castile
By Huffington Post

Disturbing information surrounding the fatal shooting of Philando Castile last July has emerged this week after a jury found a Minnesota police officer not guilty of second-degree manslaughter in the death.
On Tuesday, newly released dashcam footage of the traffic stop by St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez showed a quickly escalating situation after Castile was pulled over in the St. Paul suburb for having a broken taillight. Castile, in the car with his girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter, at first calmly informed the officer he had a firearm and is told by Yanez not to “pull it out.” He tells the officer he is not and is then shot several times. In audio from the footage, Castile can be heard saying “I wasn’t reaching” as the gunfire ends.
Throughout the trial, Yanez maintained that Castile was reaching for the weapon, but his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, said he was reaching for his wallet. Reynolds’ live-streamed video following the shooting went viral and prompted massive protests in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
Now a transcript of an interview between investigators and Yanez reveals the officer’s shocking interaction with Castile, including the quick escalation. Five passages from the transcript are below, with emphasis added. The mistakes in the transcript are from the original.

1. Castile clearly stated he had a gun, and the situation’s escalation was “split second.”

Investigator: “From the time he mentioned to you that he had a firearm, weapon, um, what was the timeline? Did he immediately announce that at start ...?”
Yanez: “I can’t remember if he immediate announced it but it caught my attention right away and it seemed like it was split-second from the time he told me to the time he was reaching down, to the time I gave him direction, to the time he had the his hand wrapped around it and then I gave him more direction and shots were fired.”

2. Castile made a “C-shape” with his hands, and it was dark inside the vehicle.

Yanez: “He dropped his hand down and, can’t remember what I was telling him but I was telling something as his hand went down I think. And, he put his hand around something. And his hand made like a C shape type, um, type shapeand it appeared to me that he was wrapping something around his fingers and almost like if I were to put my uh hand around my gun like putting my hand up to the butt of the gun.
“And then I lost view of it. Cuz he kept canting his shoulder and then I believe told him again I can’t remember don’t do it. And then he still kept moving his hand and at this point I looked and saw something in his hand. It was dark inside the vehicle, I was trying to fumble my way through under stress to look and see what it was to make sure uh what I was seeing.But I wasn’t given enough time and like I said he had no regard for what I was saying. Didn’t follow my direction. And, uh he started reaching out and then pulling uh away from his uh his right thigh. I don’t know if it was in his pocket or in between the seats or the center console. But I, I know he had an object and it was dark. And he was pulling it out with his right hand. And as he was pulling it out, a million things started going through my head. And I thought I was gonna die.”

3. Yanez said the car smelled like “burnt marijuana,” and he wasn’t sure if Castile’s gun was for protection “from a drug dealer.”

Yanez: “As I get up to the car I’m hit with an odor of burning marijuana .... And I know it’s already been smokedand I’ve been around uh through my training I’ve been around burnt marijuana and uh as a police officer I’ve been around burnt marijuana and uh fresh marijuana. So I know the distinct smells between both.
“I can’t remember if I asked for his ID or not but, I know I asked for his ID or his driver’s license. And then he goes I have a gun. And as I’m telling him or as he’s telling me that he’s reaching down between his right leg, his right thigh area and the center console. And he’s reaching down and I believe I’m telling him something along the lines of don’t reach for it, don’t do it. Referring to the, uh the firearm. Yep. Because usually people that carry firearms carry ’em on their waistband. Um and or in between the seats and being that the vehicle smelled the inside of the vehicle smelled like marijuana um Ididn’t know if he was keeping it on him for protection, for, from a, a drug dealer or anything like that or any other people trying to rip him. Rip him meaning steal from him.”

4. Yanez said Castille fit the description of a robbery suspect and had a similar “wide-set nose.”

Investigator: “Do you remember what you pulled ’em over for?”
Yanez: “I was keeping my eye on 2424 Larpenteur which is a convenience store on Larpenteur at the intersection of Larpenteur and Eustice. It’s on the southwest comer of the intersection. Um, I wanted to pay attention to that because we had a strong armed robbery last week uh which involved two African American males um, one having a firearm and pointing it at the clerk and then the other uh the victim to!d me that he also had a firearm but I wasn’t ab!e to see it when the video was reviewed. Um, so I was sitting at a intersection and I see a white vehicle. I can’t remember what kind of vehicle it was. Um but I see two occupants. What I believed was two occupants inside the car. And I couldn’t make out the passenger. But I knew the passenger had a hat on. And I couldn’t make out if it was a guy or girl I just knew that they were both African American and the driver uh appeared to me that he appeared to match the uh physical description of the one of our suspects from the strong arm robbery, gunpoint.”
Investigator: “What is that description?”
Yanez: “Um it was a (sigh) I can’t remember the height, weight but I remember that it was, the male had dreadlocks around shoulder length. Or longer hair around shoulder length. And, um it wasn’t specified if it was corn rows or dreadlocks or straight hair. Um and then just kind of distinct facial features with like, a kind of like a wide set noseand uh I saw that in the driver of the vehicle.”

5. A 4-year-old girl in the car, the daughter of Castile’s girlfriend, was in the line of fire.

Investigator: “Where is the little girl seated?”
Yanez: “She was seated behind, directly behind the front seat passenger. But diagonal, uh, from where I was standing. Um, so basically behind the driver. And then, so...”
Investigator: “Behind the driver or the passenger?”
Yanez: “So if I’m facing the driver she was, she was diagonal from him. Behind the backseat or front seat passenger. So she was in my line of fire. Um, but I made sure that I directed my firearm down and as best as I could and let off rounds and as the rounds were going off I thought he was still moving for his gun and (sigh) I it just seemed like he was pulling out the gun and the barrel just kept coming. It seemed like something was just coming out and I thought it was a gun ...
I don’t remember how many rounds I let off. Um I remember seeing the last two rounds go off and I remember seeing one of those rounds hit him in the arm. Uh his glasses flew off. I’m not sure if it was from gunfire or from him uh whipping his head back or anything like that. Uh but uh as that was happening as he was pulling at, out his hand I thought, I was gonna die and i thought if he’s, if he has the, the guts and the audacity to smoke marijuana in front of the five year old girl and risk her lungs and risk her life by giving her secondhand smoke and the front seat passenger doing the same thing then what, what care does he give about me. And, I let off the rounds and then after the rounds were off, the little girls was screaming, I held the suspect at gunpoint. His arms came up into view. And they were up by his chest I can’t remember what I said. But I acknowledged this little girl first. Cuz i wanted her to be safe.”

GOP Chairman Try to Scold Kamala Harris about ‘Courtesy’ after she GRILL...

Senator Kamala Harris Questions former FBI Director James Comey

Senator Kamala Harris Talks Comey Hearing on the Today Show

Senator Kamala Harris Tours CA Sites Impacted by Trump Budget

Last Week Senator Harris Toured CA Sites
Impacted by Trump Budget  

Friend - 
Senator Harris spent the Memorial Day state work period last week visiting key sites in California impacted by President Trump's budget and the GOP Health care bill.
On Wednesday, Senator Harris, a member of the Senate Budget Committee and the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, met with officials at the Port of Los Angeles. Harris was briefed by officials on the national and regional impact of the Port. The Trump Administration's proposed budget includes damaging cuts to transportation, goods movement, and workforce development. Harris also toured part of the Port. The Port of Los Angeles is the nation’s largest and busiest container port. It creates nearly 500,000 jobs within local counties and 1.5 million jobs nationwide. President Trump’s proposed budget would cut key programs it depends on, including workforce training programs, infrastructure development grants, and port security. As a member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Harris sent a letter of support to U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao for America’s Global Freight Gateway: Southern California Rail Project to secure a grant under the Department of Transportation’s Fostering Advancements in Shipping and Transportation for the Long-term Achievement of National Efficiencies (FASTLANE) program. This project will remove freight bottlenecks to the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach, which are the first and second busiest container ports in the nation.

*Hover over and click LA port photos for embedded video of her visit. 
On Thursday, Senator Harris met with patients and physicians at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Outpatient Center in Los Angeles. At the clinic, Harris was briefed on the Center’s critical role in providing substance abuse treatment, including opioid addiction, to patients in Los Angeles, many of whom are covered by Medicaid. The GOP health care bill cut more than $800 billion from Medicaid. The President’s proposed budget would cut up to an additional $616 billion from Medicaid. Additionally, the GOP health care bill would result in 14 million Americans losing health care coverage next year. The Center for Disease Control estimates that more than 4,600 Californians die each year from opioid overdoses, including heroin, and that number is expected to rise. Medicaid is the largest payer for opioid treatment, and both the GOP health care plan and Trump’s proposed budget would potentially make substance abuse treatment more expensive or completely unaffordable for millions of Americans. Previously at the Center for American Progress Ideas Conference, Harris spoke out against U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session’s revival of the War on Drugs and outlined how we can effectively treat the current opioid epidemic. Harris urged policymakers to treat addiction as a public health issue and to fight “not a War on Drugs but a War on Drug Addiction.”

The Senator also met with Navy officials at U.S. Naval Base Coronado on Friday, where she toured the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt and visited the Navy SEALs at the Naval Special Warfare Command and training center.
On the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt, Harris received a briefing on the ship’s capabilities, as well as the scope of Third Fleet operations in the Pacific and the role of the Carrier Strike Group. At the Naval Special Warfare Command, Harris was given an overview of Navy SEAL operations and capabilities, and their unique role in U.S. Special Operation Forces. Harris expressed her deep gratitude to all sailors and SEALs for the sacrifices of the men and women of the Navy, including fallen Navy SEAL, Special Warfare Operator First Class Remington Peters, who was memorialized at the base on Friday. The Navy is on the front lines of defending U.S. interests by sea and land. It is also a critical part of the San Diego community and economy, and the three naval bases in the region are responsible for roughly 300,000 jobs. The Navy, and its ability to operate in San Diego and Coronado, plays an essential role in our nation’s security, domestically and around the world.

Senator Harris on NBC's Today Show, Questions Comey on Sessions’ Role in Russia Probe, Requests AG Rosenstein for Full Independence to Special Counsel

Senator Harris on NBC's Today Show,Questions Comey on Sessions’ Role in Russia Probe, Requests AG Rosenstein for Full Independence to Special Counsel  

Today, Senator Kamala D. Harris, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, appeared on NBC’s Today Show for an interview with Savannah Guthrie to discuss today’s hearing with former FBI Director James Comey.
During the interview, Senator Harris stated“There is no question we have to get to the truth of what's going on. There are more questions to ask. The written statement validates some of the reports that we've been hearing that have led us to this point of even questioning whether there's been obstruction of justice. He outlines clearly there have been conversations initiated by the president that seem to be intended to interfere with the investigation at least at relates to Flynn. His letter in terms of his written statement validates that he was asked to take a loyalty oath. When I think about that, I was a District Attorney of San Francisco, the Attorney General of California, and now a United States Senator. I've taken the oath many times. The oath was to the constitution of the United States, not an individual. It's inappropriate.”
Regarding the questions that Senator Harris has for Comey, she stated: “I have lots of questions including whether he spoke with Jeff Sessions about the investigation. Was that before or after Jeff sessions recusal? I have questions about what conversations were initiated by any other member of the staff around what was going on with the investigation. I have questions about whether there were any other conversations with anyone else initiated by those people with Comey about the nature of the investigation or asking him to slow down or stop” 
Watch the full NBC’s Today Show interview HERE
At the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing, Senator Harris questioned former FBI Director James Comey about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ continued involvement in the Russia probe despite having recused himself from the investigation. This included Sessions’ recommendation that the President fire Director Comey as head of the FBI, even though Comey was leading that exact investigation in which Sessions recused himself from participating. 
Harris sought assurances from Comey that safeguards were put in place to ensure that Sessions was indeed abiding by his recusal. Harris asked, “aside from any notice or memorandum that was not sent or was, what mechanism or processes were in place to ensure that the Attorney General would not have any connection with the investigation to your knowledge?” Comey replied by saying he didn’t “know for sure.”
Harris’ questioning of Comey came on the heels of yesterday’s Intelligence hearing where she pressed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to grant Special Counsel Robert Mueller full independence. Harris asked Comey whether Director Mueller should have “full independence,” and Comey agreed.
In his prepared testimony, Comey said Trump told him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.” During the hearing, Comey said he interpreted that as an order for the probe to be dropped. Senator Harris opened by comparing this to her time as a career prosecutor, stating, “in my experience of prosecuting cases, when a robber held a gun to somebody’s head and said, ‘I hope you will give me your wallet, the word ‘hope’ was not the most operative word at that moment.” 
Watch Harris questioning Comey HERE
Yesterday, Senator Harris pressed U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on whether he would provide full independence to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the FBI’s Russia investigation.
“[T]he greater assurance is not that you and I believe in Director Mueller’s integrity, which I have no question about Mr. Mueller's integrity”, Harris said. “It is that you would put in writing an indication based on your authority as the Acting Attorney General that he has full independence in regards to the investigations that are before him. Are you willing or are you not willing to give him the authority to be fully independent of your ability, statutorily and legally, to fire him?”
Previously, Rosenstein wrote a memo that was used by the White House as justification for firing former FBI Director James Comey, a decision that has come under scrutiny. Rosenstein appointed Mueller as Special Counsel on May 17th and retains the authority to override Mueller’s decisions and to order his dismissal. In the hearing, Rosenstein refused to commit in writing to grant Mueller full independence from any officer at the Department of Justice.
Harris noted that precedent had been established when in 2003, then-Deputy Attorney General James Comey appointed a special counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald, to oversee the investigation into the leak that led to the disclosure of Valerie Plame’s identity as a CIA officer. Comey granted Fitzgerald full independence from the supervision or control of any officer at the Department of Justice.

Trump's Legacy will be on wrong side of history, science, civil rights, and everything else

Gov. Jerry Brown: While Trump is `AWOL,’ China is emerging a climate leader


Trump is on wrong side of history, science, civil rights, and everything else

 SACRAMENTO — Responding to news reports that President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw the United States from the historic Paris climate agreement, Gov. Jerry Brown said Wednesday that Trump is “on the wrong side of history” and that he hoped the president’s stance on global warming would be short-lived.

 “President Trump, he’s going off the reservation hopefully for a month, a year, not much longer,” Brown said. “If he stays on his present course California will just redouble its efforts and the people of the world will have to rise up and take action. And I think in a very paradoxical way, that’s exactly what Trump is stimulating — the very opposite of climate denial is climate activism.”

 Brown spoke to the Bay Area News Group in advance of a week-long visit to China to solidify climate and clean energy partnerships between California and Chinese provinces — ties Brown is trying to forge with other states and provinces in the U.S. and Canada. He leaves Friday.

The governor went on a similar mission to China in 2013, but a lot has changed since then. The Paris agreement was signed in 2015, and Trump was elected last fall. Trump has claimed global warming was a hoax devised by the Chinese to gain unfair trade advantages.

And on the campaign trail Trump promised to break from the 195-nation climate because it would hurt the U.S. economy. On Wednesday, he tweeted that he would announce his decision soon, followed by his campaign slogan, “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
