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.”

Democrat Party worried another hacked email trove could surface before election

Democrat Party officials are bracing for the possibility that another batch of damaging or embarrassing internal emails, the kind that cost the party chairman her job on the eve of the Democrat National Convention could become public before the November presidential election.

That fear reportedly comes as officials with knowledge of a Russian cyber attack that targeted Democrat politicians and organizations told the media that the breach was bigger than first thought and exposed the private email accounts of party officials and groups including the personal email accounts of Hillary Clinton’s key campaign officials.

The apparent wider breach reportedly has prompted the FBI to broaden its investigation, and agents have begun notifying top Democrat officials that the Russians may have breached their personal accounts, the media reported.

An earlier release of emails just days before the party convention in Philadelphia cost Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job as party chairman, while party CEO Amy Dacey; chief finance officer Brad Marshall, and communications director Luis Miranda resigned last week.

Canada police kill suspect in an anti-terror operation

Police have shot dead a suspect in an anti-terror operation in the Canadian province of Ontario, media reports say.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) would only say “action had been taken” against a lone suspect.

Canadian media said police had raided a property in Strathroy, about 225km (140 miles) south-west of Toronto.

They named the suspect as Aaron Driver, 24, who was arrested last year for openly supporting so-called Islamic State on social media.

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.

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.

Taylor Swift: Pay Me For My Music, Apple

Recently, Taylor Swift spoke out about Spotify economics. Now, she has slammed Apple over its decision not to pay musicians during a trial period for its new music service.

The music powerhouse has announced that she won’t allow her latest album, “1989,” to be included in Apple Inc.’s new music-streaming service, in a protest over royalties. Swift says Apple is acting greedy despite being one of the richest companies ever, and Taylor Swift is angry. When the Apple Music streaming service launches June 30th, users will get a three-month free trial.

Taylor Swift gets support from music superstars after writing open letter to Apple where she sad it was “shocking” that her music was to be given away for free as she pulls album from new music service.

The Apple tech giant is about to launch a new music subscription service, Apple Music on June 30, and to get folks to try it out, Apple will offer free three-month trial subscriptions.

This is usually what happens with large companies, they start attempting to railroad everyone just so they are able to do what they want, which is probably to sell more electronics rather than to help who they are using such as Taylor Swift and other great artists.

Scott Baio & Family Brace For Brain Tumor Treatment

Hollywood, California – Scott Baio, the well celebrity known as Chachi in Happy Days and his wife Renee are bracing for what is to come following her diagnosis with a brain tumor.

Baio who is now 54 and Renee Baio who is 46, posted on Facebook an explanation and a public statement about his serious condition on June 16, a meningioma brain tumor which doctors have not yet determined to be cancerous or not.

“Just a few days ago we learned my wife, Renee, has a meningioma brain tumor,” the 54-year-old star shared. “Although 90% of these type of tumors are benign they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location. We are waiting to learn the exact location to see if its operable,” he explained.

Baio praised his wife’s positive attitude saying, “Renee has been down some rough roads in her life,” he continued. “Yet each time with her strong faith in God, she comes through a better and stronger person. During this time we ask for your prayers and support. My wife is my rock. She refuses to even shed one tear, nor will she question God’s will. Renee, Bailey and I will get through this.”

He then explained how they want to help educate people on these health problems and encourage them to get checked because “6,500 people each year, mostly women get these tumors.” he says. Baio added that he and his family hope their news will encourage others to see a doctor if they suspect something is amiss.

Renee told People magazine that she has been suffering from migraines and cluster headaches for almost two years and that doctors initially told her it was because she’s over 40 and pre-menopausal. “Unfortunately, a lot of women are given this explanation and they need to get checked out,” she said. “An MRI did not pick up the tumor, but an MRI with contrast spotted it.”
