“In too much of policing today, officer safety has become the highest priority. It trumps the rights and safety of suspects. It trumps the rights and safety of bystanders. It’s so important, in fact, that an officer’s subjective fear of a minor wound from a dog bite is enough to justify using potentially lethal force, in this case at the expense of a 4-year-old girl. And this isn’t the first time. In January, an Iowa cop shot and killed a woman by mistake while trying to kill her dog. Other cops have shot other kids, other bystanders, their partners, their supervisors and even themselves while firing their guns at a dog. That mind-set is then, of course, all the more problematic when it comes to using force against people.”—Journalist Radley Balko

This is the biggest story we may ever witness. Seth Rich was a beautiful young man, who was a DNC employee over Voter Data, and he was an avid Bernie Sanders supporter. I am sure you know that Seth was murdered – gunned down – shot in the head as he was headed home late at night in his DC neighborhood.
The Rich family hired Investigator Rob Wheeler to privately investigate his death, as the DC Police was not making any progress. His death was not a robbery, and it had been declared a homicide…the family wanted answers.

The Family Research Council has endorsed Rep. Jim Bridenstine for Congress in Oklahoma’s First Congressional District. FRC Action released this letter today:
FRC Action Letter:
On behalf of FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, I am pleased to endorse you in the race for re-election to the United States Congress in the 1st District Congressional District of the state of Oklahoma.
These are challenging times. Our nation is looking for leaders who are committed to addressing important political issues head-on. From observing your work on Capitol Hill, speaking with those who know you, and evaluating your record as a legislator, we believe you will continue to be such a leader in the United States Congress.
Your record of voting to repeal Obamacare, to defend religious liberty, to ensure the American people are not forced to subsidize elective abortion, and to end taxpayers’ government-mandated partnership with Planned Parenthood make you a candidate who stands for the most fundamental freedoms of Americans.
By your condemnation of executive overreach into school bathrooms, and your co-sponsorship of the First Amendment Defense Act, you have proven you will continue to defend the Constitution and the rule of law. You understand that Big Government is not the answer to America’s challenges, and have supported reigning in an intrusive government bureaucracy. We commend your commitment to our First Amendment liberties, the right of conscience, and our freedom to live out our beliefs.
FRC Action PAC is confident that you will continue to advocate for limited government and strong family values. We are pleased to offer our endorsement, and will encourage those who care about the future of our nation and our freedoms to support you as well.
Lt. Gen. (US Army-Ret.) Jerry Boykin
Executive Vice President
Family Research Council Action PAC
