Ohio Police Officer Caught On Tape Telling Driver He Was Pulled After He Looked The Officer In The Eye

Originally posted on JONATHAN TURLEY:

daytonpolice220px-Eye_irisIt is common to get advice like “never look a polar bear in the eye.” The same appears to be true with Dayton police officers. Driver John Felton has posted a video of a pull over by a police officer who told him that he was pulled over because he “made direct eye contact” with him while driving by.

Resolved – Obama should drink pee!

1 Sep

Obama is in Alaska hoping he and Bear Gryllis will get to cross streams.

As a gay voter I wholly approve.

There is a petition up on the White House petition site demanding that President Obama drink his own purified urine like the other guests on Bear’s show. Frankly I’d rather watch James Marsden (a previous Gryllis guest) do it, or at least prepare the libation. And I’d rather that Obama drink the pee of the unemployed, or Pakistani kids droned to death, or taxpayers harassed by the IRS for their political beliefs.

But having him drink his own pee is a start.

Indiana’s Justice Agenda: Second Chances in the Hoosier State

With keynote remarks from Governor Mike Pence.

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. A buffet luncheon will be served at noon prior to Governor Pence’s remarks.

Time: 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Indiana’s state constitution calls for incarceration to “attempt to reform persons and not punish them vindictively,” a promise that is a marked departure from commonplace “tough-on-crime” rhetoric. Recent criminal justice reforms have made inroads on this promise, yet there is still work to be done.
How can Indiana realize the ideal proposed by Governor Mike Pence that “Indiana should be the worst place in the nation to commit a crime and the best place to get a second chance once you’ve done your time”? 
Please join the Charles Koch Institute as it hosts a panel discussion with criminal justice experts and featured keynote remarks from Governor Pence.

Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

I can’t wait to tell you this!
Glenn Beck just confirmed that he’ll be speaking at our 9.12 Grassroots Summit in Orlando, Florida. Bruce, when I think about 9.12 there is one name that immediately comes to mind, and that is Glenn Beck. I remember when he launched the original 9.12 project. And, I remember standing with him in Washington, DC when a million patriots made #DCListen.
Joining Glenn Beck, will be Congressmen Mark Meadows, Ron DeSantis, and Ted Yoho. These are three of the most principled conservatives in the U.S. House who are leading the charge to take America back and restore the values you and I believe in. I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss this critical update about some of the great speakers we have confirmed for the 9.12 Grassroots Summit.

And, finally, you’ll get to see Andrew Wilkow, who will be emceeing the event. And Fox News and the Wall Street Journal contributor Stephen Moore will be joining him. We’ve even invited every presidential candidate including Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, and more.

At the Summit you’ll get the chance to network with thousands of fellow patriots. You’ll receive the latest and greatest techniques in grassroots organizing. And not to mention the incredible speakers we have confirmed including Glenn Beck. Passes are going fast and space is limited, so register today.
Bruce, this is turning out to be a can’t miss event. Almost 6 years ago, a million patriots marched on Washington, and that sent a message to the world, that freedom does work. As the years have gone by, they seem to have forgotten it. Let’s remind them. If you want join, me, Glenn Beck, and thousands of fellow patriots, like you, then sign up to get your passes today.
Let’s remind the world why freedom works.

The Story of Three NSA Whistleblowers
6:30 p.m.
National Press Club: The Main Ballroom
529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor
After 9/11, disrespect for civil liberties, repression of dissent, impunity and lack of accountability took hold at the National Security Agency (NSA). This rogue culture is an assault on the rule of law and the fundamental liberties of our republic. It has had tragic consequences for our nation. The United States now has a comprehensive domestic surveillance system that provides a turnkey basis for a garrison state. This system damages our security, violates our Fourth Amendment rights and stains the reputation of our government at home and abroad. 
We owe a great debt to three American citizens: Bill Binney, Tom Drake, and Kirk Wiebe. These former NSA employees took great personal risks in objecting to the violation of our Constitution. It was because of these individuals that we know a great deal of what we know today about the intrusion of the NSA in our lives. Our government made them pay a heavy price for their truth-telling. Theirs is a story that has to be heard directly from them to be believed. It is a story every American should hear.
The Committee for the Republic has chosen Constitution week to publicly honor the patriotism, courage, and private suffering of these three whistle-blowers who defended the law and liberties of all Americans. Citizens will have the opportunity to discuss ways to restore accountability and respect for the letter and spirit of the Constitution.
The Committee for the Republic is a citizen-based, non-partisan, nonprofit organization founded in 2003. The Committee sponsors speakers monthly on challenges to the American Republic, including the military-industrial complex, too-big-to-fail banks, campaign finance, and U.S. competitiveness.

He does really hate doing it….

I hate asking you for money. I mean literally, I hate it. It’s the worst part of my job. If I had a choice I never would. But FreedomWorks has expenses. We have to pay rent, utilities, technology, equipment, and tools for activists. Heck, even this email is costing us money. I want to take our country back. I want to repeal and replace ObamaCare. I want to end Common Core. I want to stop (once and for all) Obama’s unconstitutional spy program. And most of all, I want to make sure the next generation has the same opportunities that I had. That’s why I’m here. That’s why I keep fighting, but the only way we can do that, is with your support.
Bruce, while the left is funded by a few rich corporations or billionaires, we’re funded by tens of thousands of patriots like you. And I’m hoping that today you’ll stand with FreedomWorks and donate right now. I need you to stand with FreedomWorks and donate right now.

We’ve done a lot this year. We’ve helped pass legislation in New Mexico, fought Common Core in states across the country, defended your right to privacy, and ended the Ex-Im Bank. And, we’re not stopping there. Right now, we’re working hard to impeach Obama’s IRS Commissioner, fire Boehner as Speaker of the House, end Common Core, and get Obama out of your inbox. But, if we’re going to keep that up, we need to have your support.
Your donation will cover rent, utilities, our email service provider, and the tools hundreds of thousands of activists need to make a difference: calling technology, yard signs, palm cards, door hangers, whip lists, and more.
Bruce, we’re a grassroots organization, and we depend on our community to keep the fight alive in DC.And, that’s why I’m hoping you’ll chip in today. If everyone who read this email donated just $5, I wouldn’t have to bother anyone for the rest of the year.
I hate writing this. I hate asking you for money. I grew up in Cleveland, and we don’t ask for hand-outs. And that’s why I want to make sure that you know if you donate to FreedomWorks, 79% of your donation will go directly to fighting the progressives in DC. Most organizations can’t say that. But we can. And that’s why we’re hoping you’ll stand with us today and donate at least $5. Your support matters and your donation will make a difference.
I believe in freedom. I know it works.
Thank you.
Adam Brandon,
President and CEO, FreedomWorks
