It’s no surprise to me that Mueller has or will impanel a grand jury to investigate the Russian interference and collusion allegations. This is typical in federal probes, and it’s utilized to issue subpoenas, hear testimony from witnesses and in the end to determine whether or not real evidence/probable cause exists to charge someone with a crime otherwise known as an indictment. Grand Juries do not determine guilt or innocence!
We may know from a report that a subpoena has been issued in connection with the meeting Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner had with a Russian Lawyer who supposedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton. The meeting itself was NOT illegal; however, Mueller’s, team has to investigate this meeting as part of its probe as it should, this also is not surprising.
Here is what we don’t know, whether or not President Trump is being investigated, the Presidents Attorneys stated that “they have no reason to believe that President Trump is under investigation.” A report by Blomberg news on July 20, 2017, indicates that the special counsel is investigating Trump's business transactions and their source is “someone close to the investigation.” Now 3 sources “close to the investigation,” said a Grand Jury has been empaneled. We don’t know if this is true and if it is, Mueller’s team is leaking information. I conclude if Mueller doesn't say it, then, we don’t know what’s happening and all “sources close to the investigation” should not be taken seriously until confirmed!

Thanks to Progressive Democrats, Law and Order in the United States is breaking down. I encourage all law-abiding Americans to go out and legally purchase a gun to protect themselves and their families. Join the NRA and train how to use it properly. As Democrats slowly and purposely erode order within our country, police may not be able to protect you. Police are now being 2nd guessed when they take on a dangerous gunman, and riots ensue even when a police shooting is legitimate. The War on Cops narrative by Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, The Congressional Black Caucus and President Obama have turned many of the inner cities into combat zones and unsafe for law-abiding citizens. Soon this type of anarchy may extend to every neighborhood; you better be prepared!

Re: Donald Trump’s statement: "Look, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind. And the something else in mind—you know, people can’t believe it. People cannot, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can’t even mention the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on" So what does this mean? Well in the minds of liberals, it means the President is a “Manchurian Candidate." These words do not mean the President was somehow involved in the Orlando Terrorist attack as liberals have stated, liberals think they can read minds; the mere thought is ridiculous; it's what liberals want it to mean! Why would Trump say this well, here is. Why? Obama releases thousands of drug felons from Federal Prison because he believes drug offenses aren't violent crimes. Drugs are the number-one cause of gun violence! Negotiates a treaty with IRAN that cannot be verified if they are violating it! This puts the whole world in danger. Obama weakens and cuts our military to the point that they can’t get spare parts for aircraft and other military equipment. Meanwhile, the world is a more dangerous place since the cold war. North Korea, China, Russia is flexing their muscles, and ISIS is expanding its influence worldwide. He wants to bring thousands of Syrian refugees into this country, does he not see what they are doing in France, Belgium, Germany and England. He and his progressive sycophants are at war with Law Enforcement and allow anarchy to rule the inner cities. He has divided this country more than any President in history; he divides blacks, whites, rich and poor. He has appointed member of the Muslim Brotherhood Rashad Hussain as his special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation this Org. It wants to quash criticism of Islam and jihad violence. Here is the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood. Now you know why Donald Trump said what he said! Who wouldn't!

Today starts the trial of Baltimore Police Officer Goodson, the driver of the van in the Freddie Gray Case. This is the 3rd trial and so far the score is Truth-Justice 2 & Criminal States Attorney 0. The prosecution must now prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Goodson took Gray for a “rough ride” to intentionally do him harm, which resulted in his death. Already there are problems with this trial, which I think anyone could assume based on the last two. The Baltimore Sun reported the States Attorney has video of Goodson running a stop sign and crossing the center line. Well, they better have more than that because for Goodson to be giving a rough ride the van would have to be weaving and turning quickly in order for Gray to be bouncing around on the inside. However, there was also someone else in the back of the van under arrest Dante Allen, he survived uninjured and he stated that he did not feel a rough ride and that he heard Gray thrashing himself around in the van, then he recanted, most likely to NOT get his butt kicked on the street for telling the truth. Prosecutors met with Allen last year and did not disclose it nor did they take notes, this made Judge Williams furious and he ordered the States Attorney that he did not know the rules of discovery & evidence. Williams ordered them to go back and check for other things that may have failed to disclose. Another blow to the case is that the Medical Examiner initially believed Grays death to be a “freakish accident” but changed her mind after a pressurized meeting with prosecutors. I can’t wait for that deposition in the law suit and the defenses cross examination. The States Attorney also claim that after Goodson made a turn and ran the stop sign he stopped to check on Gray, their contention is that he knew he hurt Gray and checked on him. This is a wild assumption on their part Goodson may also have stopped to check on Gray because he was thrashing himself around in the back of the van like Allen stated. If Goodson wanted to hurt him, why check on him? As I have stated before I don’t believe for a second that the States Attorney does not know what they are doing and everyone from the Mayor and the States Attorney are involved in this miscarriage of Justice and should be investigated for Official Misconduct. This is just another battle in the War on the Police that is perpetrated by progressive democrats and its one we may just win. LikeBaltimore Police Officer Goodson goes on TrialComment

The attack in San Bernardino California should be a wakeup call for Police countrywide. It raises the question, are our patrol officers who are the first to respond properly equipped to confront active shooters with assault type rifles? The answer is a resounding no, and here is why. With the increasing chance and frequency of this type attacks its almost suicidal for officers armed with 9 MM handguns to confront shooters who are armed with AR-15 type weapons that can be easily converted to fully automatic (machine guns). The reality is that if the shooters in San Bernardino were still active at the scene when police first arrived they would have had the advantage of firepower over patrol officers, and their bullet-proof vests would have been useless against a 5.56 bullet. This could have easily resulted in dead police officers. Police cannot wait for Swat teams to arrive with proper weapons and equipment to engage; Patrol must confront the shooters immediately. The attack in Columbine resulted in a new police response to immediately engage to eliminate the threat and stop the killing. Therefore, patrol officers need to be properly equipped with M-16 automatic rifles and bullet-proof vests that will stop a military type round. Officers should have M-16 rifles mounted and locked in their vehicles and better body armor/helmets that would be used only for these active shooter type incidents. This attack in San Bernardino is the best example that police officers require military type equipment to properly respond. I know there will be those who say that the Police should not have these weapons. However, my response would be, “then you won’t mind if we give you a 9mm and a vest, and you can confront the shooters,” I’m sure no one will volunteer! Police response without this equipment is almost suicidal, and we should make sure that the officers who lay their lives down are given at least an even chance to survive!

The main question in this trial, did Freddie Gray die as a result of his own actions or that of the Police? Already the jury pool has been tainted by the city of Baltimore settling with the Gray family for 6.4 million dollars. This is an admission of guilt on the part of the city. This should have been considered after all the trials were finished. This may have been the plan all along to guarantee a conviction. Based on the evidence that I have seen in this case, and I admit I have not seen it all. This has the appearance of a political action and prosecutorial misconduct. I believe PO Porter was specifically put on trial first because he is black and may make a deal to testify against the other officers in the next trials. They tried to persuade PO Porter to break away from the other 2, Sgt. White and PO Goodson and save himself. Officer Porter did not accept the offer by the prosecutors and pleaded not guilty. PO Porter warned PO Goodson (driver of police van) that Gray, required medical attention, although he wasn't sure if Gray was faking!!! He also told Sgt. White the same thing. I believe Porter's culpability here diminished when he informed Sgt. White of his condition, and she did not take charge and have Gray hospitalized. I don’t see Porter being convicted if he has a fair jury. I will be watching the Freddie Gray Case very closely now that the trials will start. This case is being watched by police officers; the result will more than likely dictate how police officers in this country will pro actively respond to criminal behavior, and it may not be good for the inner cities.

Since the election of President Obama, there has been a new consistent wave of Progressive politicians bashing the police and utilizing them as pawns in their political games. It’s fairly obvious to me that this country has become more divided then it has ever been in my lifetime. Divide and conquer seems to be the approach of progressives working in conjunction with the liberal main stream media to help push this divide and conquer strategy. Another tactic is to fabricate the illusion of systemic racism to further divide the community. This War on the police is most evident in the inner cities where the race card is the most important factor in the progressive response to EVERYTHING! The progressive message consistently portrays incidents such as Ferguson and Staten Island as examples of police misconduct. When in fact the officers in both instances were exonerated and found to have acted properly. The “Hands up don’t Shoot” lie is still embraced by them and the congressional black caucus even after it was proved it never occurred. However, the truth does not matter to progressives because it does not coincide with their narrative. Mark Twain popularized the term there are three kinds of lies, “lies, damned lies and statistics” that in itself defines the progressives response to everything. They consistently quote erroneous statistics that aren’t well thought out and those who gathered them have a preconceived notion manipulating them to match their agenda. If that doesn't work they revert back to what happened 50 to 100 years ago to try and make it relevant to what is occurring today. Then administer a dose of the race card. In July 2009, Harvard University Professor Henry Gates was arrested by local police who responded to a call of a burglary in progress. President Obama commented on the incident before the investigation was concluded criticizing the police. It turns out Gates's behavior while this incident was taking place became disorderly and Gates ignored warnings by the police to calm down. Gate was consistently and loudly playing the race card, and it was his own actions that lead to the arrest. The President later apologized and had a ridiculous beer summit with the arresting officer which was a complete waste of time. In Sept 2014, President Obama in a speech to the UN invokes what happened in Ferguson MI. He sends the Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson MO. Obama states in a speech in Martha Vineyard, he states, “And when something like this happens, the local authorities -- including the police -- have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death, and how they are protecting the people in their community” The only thing gleaned from that statement is the police investigation lacks integrity, an assumption on the Presidents part reveals his bias. It’s comical to me how the President talks about integrity and transparency while it’s mired in Benghazi and the IRS Scandal. These two instances prove that even before the facts are in, he criticizes the police in their actions. The President and NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio align themselves with Al Sharpton, who is almost always proven to be wrong in criticizing the police and their actions and perpetrating the race card into every incident. More and more Progressive Politicians are aligning themselves with Sharpton to help lend more credibility to his demagoguery. The race and hate card works for liberals so Sharpton is their best friend. Even MSNBC gave Sharpton his own TV show, so he can spew his racist hateful anti police rhetoric. You see one has to conclude that liberals like high crime rates, poverty and unemployment, and it’s their own policies that created it. However, they have an effective lie that blames others for all the inner-city problems, which keeps getting them elected. It’s safe to say that most high-crime areas in this country, especially minority communities are and have been consistently run by liberal Democrats. However, those who vote in those communities still elect liberals who only claim they care. When will minorities wake up and give another party a chance to see what they can do? I have spoken to Police Officers in Chicago, NY, NJ, LA, DC, Detroit and Baltimore and they all say the same thing, the liberal politicians do not back the police. Progressives and their liberal media partners have created an environment where the cops say I will do just exactly what I have to do and nothing further. Therefore Officers are becoming more reactive and no longer pro-active. You see cops aren't punching bags nor do they get paid to get shot or hurt. However, they are willing to take the extra risks because they care, but the progressives are destroying a police officer’s ability to care. So cops say to themselves why should I care if the people and politicians don’t? Why should I stop someone and lose my home, my job and family in a lawsuit if I’m wrong? Here is a question I want to ask, Sharpton and all the other race baiting progressives. Where are you when two black drug dealers shoot it out in a playground and an innocent 5 yr old black child is killed as a result? I can tell you they are nowhere! You must conclude that they don’t care for black children playing safely in the playground of a housing project nor do they care about black on black crime. However, god forbid if a cop, especially a white cop smacks a drug dealer in the face when he’s being arrested. A drug dealer who poisons children in those parts of the city that they represent. This war on the police will have one effect; it will put the minorities in even more danger in their neighborhoods, and the police will stop caring. The liberals will then get what they want and turn another city into a combat zone. It’s time for all Law Enforcement agencies to start promoting a consistent, loud message to Americans about all the good they do every day. In time this will drown out the false message perpetrated by progressives and their lies will no longer be embraced. Harry J Houck Jr.
