Good Grief: TSA Searches 96-Year-Old Wheelchair Bound Woman, Sparks Debate

Talk about an invasion of privacy. Millions of people have watched TSA agents pat-down, search, and creep upon a 96-year-old wheelchair bound mother. While public safety and airport security is important, many are saying this was over the line and completely unnecessary. Still, others assert the TSA agents were doing their duty.

Jeanne Clarkson was traveling with her mother, Evelyn Labrier who happens to be in a wheel chair when TSA agents decided that her mother might some how pose a security threat and needed an invasive pat-down.

“I was just shocked. I’ve traveled with her before, I’ve been in a wheelchair myself unable to walk through the machines and I’ve never had that kind of a pat-down ever. I was just shocked. I couldn’t believe they were doing this to my 96-year-old mother,” Jeanne Clarkson told CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave. “It was just shock, and frustration because they would not talk to me. I felt helpless.”

Clarkson says she, her fiancé and Evelyn LaBrier were traveling back home to Anderson, Indiana after visiting her son in Maryland. The TSA screener was polite and explained what was happening during the search which included a pat-down of LaBrier’s chest and pelvis region.

. . .

Commenters on Facebook have offered a mix bag of reactions. Some say “This poor lady! Her shoulder was stiff and she needed that arm rest so badly! She was so patient! She may have needed to use the restroom after all that prodding! Bless her!” and “Wow,sorry your mother had to go through that,like she has something to hide.where do they get these ingorant (sic) people?”

50 Years After RFK Was Killed, Here Are 5 Reasons Why His Own Son Doesn’t Believe the Official Story

On June 5, 1968, Senator Robert F. Kennedy had just won the California Democratic presidential primary when he was shot following a speech at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. As Americans remember the tragic night 50 years ago, Kennedy’s son is joining with one of the survivors of the shooting to call for a new investigation.

Below are five bombshell reasons explaining exactly why Robert Kennedy Jr. is justified in calling for this investigation into who killed his father.

1. Forensic scientists claim the audio of the shooting includes 13 shots from two guns, but the “lone gunman” blamed for the shooting only had one gun with eight bullets

Sirhan Sirhan was quickly convicted of shooting and killing Kennedy, and he was labeled as the “lone gunman” in the assassination. According to reports, he opened fire on Kennedy with a .22-caliber revolver from three feet away, while the presidential candidate was greeting staff members in the hotel’s kitchen.

Sirhan’s first bullet hit the head of Kennedy’s aide, Paul Schrade, who was standing six feet behind Kennedy. His second bullet missed completely, and he fired the last six bullets, wounding four other people before he was taken down by two hotel staff members who grabbed his gun. However, while it was only physically possible for Sirhan to have fired eight shots, audio expert Phil Van Praag determined that 13 shots had been fired from at least two guns.

2. The autopsy report shows the bullet that killed Kennedy entered his skull behind his right ear—but Sirhan was standing in front of him

The timing and layout of the shooting placed Sirhan in front of Kennedy the entire time, but the autopsy report showed that the fatal shot that took Kennedy’s life, entered his skill from behind his right ear. Yet investigators have failed to explain the multiple other bullet holes that were found in the kitchen, or how it was possible for Sirhan to have fired the shot that killed Kennedy.

After he survived the shooting, Schrade has devoted years to pushing for a new investigation and calling for justice for Sirhan—the man who allegedly shot him in the head. In a statement, Schrade said, “The LAPD and LA DA knew two hours after the fatal shooting of Robert Kennedy that he was shot by a second gunman and they had conclusive evidence that Sirhan Bishara Sirhan could not and did not do it. The official record shows that [the prosecution at Sirhan’s trial] never had one witness—and had no physical nor ballistic evidence—to prove Sirhan shot Robert Kennedy.”

3. Multiple witnesses have testified that there was a second gunman

In addition to Schrade’s claim that a second gunman was responsible for Kennedy’s death, actress Nina Rhodes-Hughes was a witness to the shooting, and she has testified that she believes there was more than one shooter. She was behind Kennedy when the shooting started, and while she remembers seeing Sirhan in front of her, she claims she heard multiple shots fired from her right-hand side.

Rhodes-Hughes told the Vancouver Sun that not a single police officer questioned her the night of the shooting, and it was more than a month before FBI agents arrived at her home for an interview. She said even though she told them that she heard 12 or 13 shots ring out, the agents’ notes claimed she said she heard eight rounds—the exact number of bullets in Sirhan’s gun—and she was never called to testify in court.

4. Sirhan has spent 50 years claiming he does not remember shooting Robert Kennedy

Sirhan has adamantly claimed that he does not remember the shooting or the events surrounding it. Harvard psychologist Dr. Daniel Brown spent 60 hours interviewing Sirhan over the course of three years leading up to his last parole hearing in 2011, and he determined that Sirhan had likely been subjected to coercive suggestive influence and hypnotic programming.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, the CIA’s MKUltra program was ongoing at the time and Dr. Brown’s colleague, former Georgetown Law Professor Alan Scheflin, “discovered at least three redacted documents describing ‘successful assassinations’ in other countries using the unconscious assassination method,” in which a combination of sensory deprivation, hallucinogenic drugs and hypnosis were used to train unconscious assassins.

5. Police have been accused of destroying evidence, threatening witnesses and intentionally ignoring the possibility of a second shooter.

Los Angeles Police and prosecutors have faced heavy scrutiny in the years since they were instrumental in Sirhan’s conviction. Prosecutors intentionally withheld the autopsy report from Sirhan’s defense lawyers for the first six weeks of the trial, and police “failed to investigate an armed private-security guard who was walking behind Kennedy at precisely the angle where the fatal shots to Kennedy’s head and back were fired,” according to a report from the Washington Post.

In addition to failing to prevent vital evidence at the trial, Los Angeles Police burned 2,140 police photographs related to the shooting, and incinerated thousands of documents and pieces of evidence from the case, including doorframes with bullet holes that proved more than eight shots were fired.

Kennedy was pronounced dead 26 hours after he was shot and while there have been many theories surrounding his death, the 50th anniversary marks the first time his son, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has openly called for a new investigation and after visiting the convicted killer in prison, he has said he does not believe that Sirhan Sirhan was responsible for his father’s death.

“I got to a place where I had to see Sirhan,” Kennedy said just after he visited and talked to the man sitting in jail for killing his dad. “I went there because I was curious and disturbed by what I had seen in the evidence,” said Kennedy, an environmental lawyer and the third oldest of his father’s 11 children. “I was disturbed that the wrong person might have been convicted of killing my father. My father was the chief law enforcement officer in this country. I think it would have disturbed him if somebody was put in jail for a crime they didn’t commit.”

Watch: Two Transgenders Blow out Girls in State Meet

. . .On Monday, when Connecticut had its State Open track and field championships at Willow Brook Park, one person broke the State Open records for girls in both the 100 and 200-meter runs. . .

Terry Miller of Bulkeley, a transgender, won the events. In the 100 meter dash, the runner-up was Andraya Yearwood of Cromwell, also a transgender.

Yearwood won the Class M sprint titles last year; Miller competed on the boys’ team during the winter indoor season then joined the girls’ competition.

Asked about the two girls who worked for years who got knocked out of the finals by Miller and Yearwood and the two girls who finished seventh and eighth in the finals who were denied a chance to compete in the New England championships, CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff said, “We do feel for them. Fully agree it doesn’t feel good. The optic isn’t good. But we really do have to look at the bigger issues that speak to civil rights and the fact this is high school sports.” (Read more from “Watch: Two Transgenders Blow out Girls in State Meet” HERE)

Watch: Woman Lifts Table, Rips Fliers, Dances and Screams at Conservative Students

. . .A liberal university student was caught on camera committing both, after she was “triggered” by conservative students telling the truth about socialism.

During an event held at Santa Clara University, the conservative group Turning Point USA hosted a peaceful anti-socialist demonstration. According to Campus Reform, local students held an event May 31 that recognized the millions of innocent people killed under socialist and communist regimes.

The Black Book of Communism, published by Harvard University, estimates a death toll of near 100 million from communism and socialism, with the Soviet Union and China responsible for the most atrocities. . .

“Incensed by the display, an outraged individual approached the TPUSA students as they were tabling nearby, ripping up their anti-socialist posters and calling them ‘a bunch of f—ing Trump supporters,” reported Campus Reform. . .

Apparently destroying someone else’s property is completely fine as long as you claim to stand with the poor, while ignoring the appalling poverty of socialist nations like Venezuela. (Read more from “Watch: Woman Lifts Table, Rips Fliers, Dances and Screams at Conservative Students” HERE)

Mother of 16-Year-Old Girl Butchered by MS-13 Says Trump Didn’t Go Far Enough With ‘Animals’ Comment

President Donald Trump was absolutely skewered in the media for calling MS-13 gang members “animals”… but the mother of a teenage girl who was murdered by that group believes he didn’t go far enough. . .

Now, the grieving mother of one of that gang’s victims is pushing back against the liberal media, and siding with Trump’s tough words. . .

Rodriguez’s 16-year-old daughter Kayla Cuevas was brutally beaten to death by MS-13 gang members in New York two years ago. Another girl was also killed at the same time, and authorities found that three of the four Mara Salvatrucha suspects were illegal aliens.

“(MS-13 is) the demon itself,” Rodriguez said. “When you look at these individuals, it’s just seeing darkness. There’s nothing there.” . . .

Underage sex trafficking is also part of the gang’s activities, making Trump’s comment seem rather tame. When victims of sex slavery don’t comply, brutal beatings and even more unspeakable acts are often the result.

Liberal Town Tells Business to Remove ‘Excessive’ American Flags. Now the Business Is Fighting Back.

To honor veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice, employees at Laer Reality in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, placed 200 American flags in the grass in the front of their office, which lay adjacent to a busy intersection. . .

The business didn’t hear anything negative until Friday, according to Crandall, who said when he showed up to work on Friday there was a note on the door from the city about the flags.

The note explained the business had violated the town’s code for “excessive flags,” and requested the business remove the majority of the flags, so only a “reasonable” amount remained. . .

Instead of removing flags, the business added about 300 more. Now, about 500 flags are prominently displaced in front of the business.

“We feel this is a patriotic act. It’s not about our business. It’s about supporting our troops, supporting veterans,” Crandall said. “I think the flags speak for themselves. I don’t think we need to get into a fight with city hall.” (Read more from “Liberal Town Tells Business to Remove ‘Excessive’ American Flags. Now the Business Is Fighting Back.” HERE)

Drum Roll, Please: Survey Asks Millennials If They’d Date a Trump Supporter or an MS-13 Gang Member

The Dally Caller did a random survey on the streets of Washington, D.C., last week to ask people if they would rather date a Trump supporter or an MS-13 gang member. . .

The interviewers captured several people saying they’d rather date an MS-13 gang member. Hopefully, some of them were being sarcastic. Others said “neither,” when asked which they would choose. A couple of people did not know what MS-13 means. . .

Trump has repeatedly called MS-13 members “violent animals,” a fitting label given their list of alleged crimes. He has also used examples of the gang’s violence to support the case for having a secure border.

The president was recently blasted in the mainstream media for calling the gang members “animals.” Although Trump was specifically referring to violent criminals, his words were twisted to make it sound like he meant all immigrants.

“I noticed recently where Democrats – Nancy Pelosi as an example – are trying to defend MS-13 gang members,” Trump said at an immigration roundtable in May. “I called them animals the other day and I was met with rebuke.” (Read more from “Drum Roll, Please: Survey Asks Millennials If They’d Date a Trump Supporter or an MS-13 Gang Member” HERE)

Bill Clinton Says This Is the Reason Why Obama Was Treated Different Than Trump

By The Daily Wire. On Sunday, former-President Bill Clinton appeared with author James Patterson on “CBS Sunday Morning” to promote their new book, “The President is Missing,” which will hit shelves on Monday. During the segment, correspondent Mo Rocca asked Clinton if he believed that the press treated Obama with more reverence than Trump, and if so, why?

ROCCA: You hear from Trump supporters who say, “You know, the press slobbered all over President Obama. He could do no wrong. And now this guy can do no right. What gives?” That there’s a kind of whiplash.

CLINTON: Well, they did treat him differently than other Democrats and Republicans because they –

CLINTON: It was the political press. You know, I don’t know. They liked him, and they liked having the first African American president – and he was a good president, I think.

Bill Clinton Says Impeachment Hearings Would Have Begun Already If a Democrat Were President

By Fox News. Former President Bill Clinton argued Sunday that impeachment hearings would already be in full swing if a Democrat were in the Oval Office and if the special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election were as deep as it is now.

“I think if the roles were reversed — now, this is me just talking, but it’s based on my experience — if it were a Democratic president, and these facts were present, most people I know in Washington believe impeachment hearings would have begun already,” Clinton told “CBS Sunday Morning.”

Clinton, who appeared alongside James Patterson to promote the political thriller “The President is Missing” that the two penned together, noted that these are “serious issues” that the country is facing.

So far, the special counsel’s investigation, which is headed up by former FBI director Robert Mueller, has charged 19 people – including three former campaign aides of President Trump – along with three companies, and has received five guilty pleas. Perhaps the most high-profile of those guilty pleas came from Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
