Organizer Of Protest That Left 5 Cops Dead Arrested For Felony Theft
Officers of the Dallas Police Department arrested Dominque Alexander on Thursday, the black activist that organized the 2016 anti-police protest in Dallas that left 12 officers shot and five dead.
Alexander faces charges of felony theft, stemming from a previous employer who claims the activist received payments between $2,500 and $30,000 from clients without transferring them to the company, the Dallas Observer reported.
Alexander pleaded guilty in 2009 to causing serious bodily injury to a 2-year-old and was subsequently sentenced to probation, FOX 4 Dallas reported. His repeated probation violations led to a final sentence of two years in prison in August 2016, but a judge counted his years of probation against his two-year sentence, and he spent less than a month in jail.
LESS THAN A MONTH!
[CtH: I sincerely hope that judge gets called to account by God for letting a child abuser walk!]

Donald J. Trump
Republicans, sorry, but I’ve been hearing about Repeal & Replace for 7 years, didn’t happen! Even worse, the Senate Filibuster Rule will….

…never allow the Republicans to pass even great legislation. 8 Dems control – will rarely get 60 (vs. 51) votes. It is a Repub Death Wish!
Michelle Obama outshines all Democratic prospects for 2020
As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020. This alternative plan requires a new, united opposition, led by a political leader with widespread popularity. The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.

Green groups are discovering that Donald Trump is not the same president as Barack Obama, whose EPA routinely engaged with them in corrupt deals flavored with an excess of sugar and grease.

Democrats’ top problem in 2018: The math is still against them
Failing to appeal to working-class voters in key states won by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama was a key part of Hillary Clinton’s downfall. But Hillary’s problem went well beyond swing states; it was national. Overall, Trump won 2,622 counties, while Clinton only carried 490. Why does this matter? Because there are simply not enough coastal seats to be won for Democrats to win the House.
MSNBC: Menendez Can ‘Hang On’ to Senate Seat ‘Months’ After Corruption Conviction
“Chris Christie’s term is up…he will be out of the office by the second week of January.

He assured the show’s liberal panelists: “I’m almost sure he would do this and I’m almost sure Democrats in the Senate would have his back in doing this.”

Brace Yourselves For IMPACT- Illegal Alien Sitcoms Headed To CBS And CW
The shows, entitled Have Mercy and Illegal (not exactly subtle) focus on illegal aliens who are struggling to achieve their full potential in the United States.
