Donald Trump: We’re going directly to the voters

You’ve seen it – the liberal media can’t stop telling outrageous lies about me.

They are really a disgrace to journalism, and they’re so desperate to mislead the American people about our campaign!

Yet at every stage we continue to prove them wrong, including:

— Smashing the Republican primary vote record by 1.4 MILLION votes;

— Pulling off an incredible Republican National Convention, with much higher viewership than the Democrats’ disastrous convention;

— Packing stadiums everywhere we go;

— Raising $82 million in July alone from hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters.

Now we must continue to build on our great momentum all across the country.

We know the Clinton campaign will cheat to win – just like they did in the race for the Democrat nomination.

And we know the liberal media will continue to say and do ANYTHING to put Crooked Hillary Clinton in the White House!

I know you’ve been following this race closely. I’m sure you’re as sick and tired of their desperate lies as I am.

Day in and day out they attack me, our campaign, our Republican friends down the ticket and supporters like you all across the country…

…while giving Crooked Hillary a free pass on her terrible policies and long record of failure and cronyism!

Don’t let them get away with it – help me prove our opponents and the liberal media wrong about the Trump movement, by growing our team and WINNING on Election Day!

We’re going to reach the American people directly with our message about making better deals for our country, bringing back our jobs, and achieving a brighter future for every American.

NFL says no to the Dallas Cowboy decals for fallen police officers in Dallas Texas

The NFL denied the Dallas Cowboys request to wear a decal on their helmets that would have paid tribute to the five police officers killed last month in a downtown Dallas ambush.

The team had been wearing a decal with the words “Arm in Arm” since the first day of training camp this summer where Dallas police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings paid the team a visit on that day.

The NFL has strict rules on uniforms forcing the league to deny the Cowboys request to wear the decal for the upcoming pro football season. In the past, there have been several other tribute decals allowed to be worn on helmets and other parts of the uniform.

Dallas police said it appreciated the support that the Cowboys are attempting to show.

“Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future,” the department said in a statement.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and tight end Jason Witten, who created the decal, said they were disappointed with the leagues decision but said they believed the stickers already served its purpose.

NFL says no to the Dallas Cowboy decals for fallen police officers in Dallas Texas

The Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation told the media they were extremely upset over the NFL’s decision not to allow the Cowboys to wear the decal.

“The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement,” Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the foundation, told the website. “These are our friends and our loved ones … it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us.”

Arkansas deputy sheriff shot dead, suspect arrested

An Arkansas deputy sheriff was fatally shot Wednesday morning and a local police chief was injured while responding to a disturbance call.

Sebastian County Deputy Bill Cooper, who had been shot in the neck, was pronounced dead Wednesday afternoon at Sparks Hospital in Fort Smith.

A visibly emotional Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck described Cooper, a 15-year veteran and former U.S. Marine, as “dynamic.”

“He loved his job,” Hollenbeck told a news conference. “He could’ve retired years ago. He loved this community so much he stayed on.”

Deputy Bill Cooper was shot Wednesday morning.

Billy Monroe Jones, 34, was identified as the accused gunman and taken into custody shortly before noon, nearly five hours after the shooting at Jones’ home east of Hackett, near the Oklahoma border.

NASA and Curiosity Celebrate Four Years On Mars

Four years ago today, NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity made one of the most dramatic and technical landings in the history of space exploration.

On the night of August 5, 2012, a rocket powered sky crane lowered the car size Curiosity onto the Mars red dirt using cables, then flew off and intentionally crash-landed a safe distance away.

Curiosity team members had modeled this novel technique repeatedly using computers, but it had never been tested fully here on Earth, let alone employed on the surface of another world.

Still, everything worked perfectly at crunch time, and Curiosity soon began exploring the interior of Mars’ 96-mile-wide Gale Crater. The discoveries came fast: The rover found that the area near its landing site harbored a lake-and-stream system long ago, showing that at least some parts of the Red Planet could have supported microbial life in the ancient past.

“It was just an early home run that kind of took the pressure off, and allowed us to expand on that [discovery] for the next few years,” Curiosity project scientist Ashwin Vasavada, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, told the media.

San Francisco High-rise Sinking and Tilting

A high-rise residential tower built recently in San Francisco that is home to famed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana and San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is slowly sinking and shifting, and may ignite a court battle between residents and the city.

P.J. Johnston, spokesman for Millennium Partners, which built the tower, told the media in a written statement that the transit center has been a negative impact on the luxury high-rise.

“All buildings settle over time,” the statement said. “However, 301 Mission exists in a location where major underground construction work was subsequently performed by others, who were obligated to monitor and protect existing structures, and to mitigate any impacts of their work. 301 Mission has settled more than originally anticipated because it was affected by such subsequent construction by others.”

The Millennium Tower Association, the building’s home owners association, told the media it has hired its own group of consultants to try and figure out what’s going on.

“The Association has retained a number of engineering consultants to investigate the causes and long-term impact of these settlement conditions,” the group said in a written statement. “Importantly, the Association has been assured that there are currently no short or long-term concerns with regard to building integrity or safety.”

19,000 Civilians Die In Iraq Since January 2014

Nearly 19,000 civilians were killed in Iraq between January 2014 and October 2015 — a toll the United Nations calls “staggering” in a new report.

The report, released Tuesday, outlines the horrific impact Iraq’s ongoing conflict is having on its civilian population.

The numbers are mind-boggling. In the 21-month period:

At least 18,802 civilians were killed, about half of them in Baghdad alone.

Another 36,245 were wounded.

About 3.2 million people were internally displaced, including a million school-aged children.

The actual figures could be much higher, the report said.

Barack Obama To Join Anderson Cooper On Gun Control

President Barack Obama will join Anderson Cooper on CNN at 8 p.m. ET Thursday for a live town hall on gun control called “Guns in America.”

The President will discuss gun issues with Cooper and take questions from the audience.

The President has repeatedly expressed frustration with Congress’ inability to pass new gun laws. He plans to meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss gun control and is expected to announce soon new executive action aimed at expanding background checks on gun sales.

Rick Santorum On The Supreme Court Same Sex Marriage Ruling

The Supreme Court just launched an unprecedented attack on the religious liberty and the traditional family.

These unelected judges created – out of thin air – a “right” to same-sex “marriage,” and ruled that all states must recognize these unions, regardless of their own laws.

This is a watershed moment in American history. It’s the most egregious rejection of traditional values and the Bill of Rights since Roe v. Wade.

We can’t let it stand!

I’m running for President because I believe our traditional values are worth protecting. I believe that our religious freedom cannot and should not be violated by an overbearing government bending to the whims of a vocal minority.

It’s easy to talk the talk, but together we’ve walked the walk!

I was the author of the Federal Marriage Amendment and I fought my own Party who did not even want to vote on it. But I demanded a vote and we got a vote!

But now, with this same-sex “marriage” ruling, I have never been more driven to stand up for traditional families and defend the true and right meaning of marriage.

I promise that, as President, I will use the most powerful tool of the executive office – the bully pulpit – to have the national conversation on marriage and family that our current President refuses to have, and we will make the case that marriage cannot be redefined by unelected judges.

My administration will talk about the implications on our society if we upend the foundational institution of humanity. We will talk about the importance of children having both a mom and a dad.

If this president can use the bully pulpit to talk about trans fats, then my administration can surely use it to talk about the importance of the building block of society!

We have already gotten a taste of the fallout from this historic ruling.

Family businesses have been shut down because they refused to cater gay weddings. Others have been sued for “hate speech.” How long will it be before our churches and synagogues are in the crosshairs as well?

This court ruling is the Roe v. Wade of the 21st Century. It’s an attack on religious freedom, an affront to the religious liberty of millions of Americans, and a threat to the stability of our families.

We can’t allow it to stand. And as President, I will do all within my power to overturn it.

Charleston Shooting, FBI Manifesto Review, Rally/Protest

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Dylann Roof, the man charged with shooting and killing nine people in an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, this week, appears to have written and published a manifesto and cache of photographs that detail a violent, hateful ideology. Dylann Roof was posing in photographs with a handgun and standing in front of a Confederate military museum and plantation slave houses. FBI agents are reviewing the manifesto linked to Dylann Roof.

A friend of Dylann Roof, the man charged with fatally shooting said if he had any idea what the 21-year-old was planning he would have stopped him although it was reported that Dylann Roof said he wanted to “Do something crazy” before the Charleston killings.

Days after the attack at the black church, grief hangs in the air, hundreds of protesters rally and walked down the streets of Charleston, chanting “Black lives matter” and “We can’t take it no more.” The peaceful march complied with police requests to reroute and ended as planned at the Daughters of the Confederacy. A small group of parishioners was allowed inside where the shooting took place the bullet-scarred Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church on Saturday, getting a firsthand glimpse of the room where nine people from their congregation were slain.

In my view and the staff at News Spoiler, all lives matter, no matter what color your skin. We are all in this together and if some un educated or mentally incapacitated person commits an act such as this, we must all stand together no matter the color of skin.
