U.S. Women’s Soccer Player Drops American Flag on Ground to Mug for Cameras

The U.S. women’s soccer team won the World Cup on Sunday, but in the process continued its trend of creating controversy.

Minutes after the 2-0 game ended in Lyon, France, U.S. midfielder Allie Long was holding an American flag when forward Megan Rapinoe urged her to join in on a choreographed celebration for the cameras. . .

U.S. player Kelley O’Hara, who was forced to the sidelines after a hard collision left her with concussion-like symptoms, quickly jumped in to pick up the flag. . .

The U.S. team has been mired in controversy since the beginning of the World Cup. After scoring the second goal in the World Cup for a 2-1 win over England last Tuesday, player Alex Morgan celebrated by pretending to drink a cup of tea, hoisting a pinkie in the air.

WATCH: Trump GOES OFF on UK Ambassador Who Attacked Him

President Trump pulled no punches in condemning Britain’s ambassador to the United States on Sunday, saying “we are not big fans of that man” and asserting that he has “not served the U.K. well,” after a leaked diplomatic cable showed the ambassador secretly slamming the White House.

Ambassador Kim Darroch described the Trump administration as “diplomatically clumsy and inept” and said he doubted it would become “substantially more normal,” according to the cable. . .

“We’ve had our little ins and outs with a couple of countries, and I would say that the U.K. — their ambassador has not served the U.K. well, I can tell you that,” Trump told reporters. “We are not big fans of that man, and he has not served the U.K. well. So, I can understand it and I can say things about him, but I won’t bother.”

Britain’s Foreign Office did not challenge the authenticity of the leaked documents, which covered the period of 2017 to the present, and came to Darroch’s defense. It called the leak “mischievous behavior” and said the public has expected diplomats to provide honest assessments of the politics in the countries where they’re posted.

The Foreign Office said the leaks would not harm the productive relationship between the British government and the Trump White House. A formal investigation of the leak may be set in motion in the coming days. (Read more from “Trump Goes off on UK Ambassador Who Attacked Him” HERE)

Border Patrol Agents Put AOC to Shame with Video Tour After She Insists Detainees Are Drinking from Toilets

Arizona Border Patrol shared a video tour of their facility this week, directly refuting claims about the conditions in the facility made by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y). . .

The Arizona Border Patrol posted the video Wednesday and captioned it, “Here is a look at the inside of a #BorderPatrol processing center with Chief Patrol Agent of #TucsonSector Roy Villareal.”

In the video, Villareal can be seen showing well-stocked supply closets, filled with medical supplies, clothing, and personal hygiene supplies. A supply cart full of food, baby formula, and blankets can also be seen.

In extremely heated remarks, Ocasio-Cortez said that she witnessed horrible treatment during her visits to the detention centers.

She alleged that young children did not have access to clean diapers, and insisted that many detainees also reportedly went without ample access to clean water or food — even claiming that some were told to drink from the toilet. The freshman lawmaker also referred to the facilities as “concentration camps,” a term that did not go over well with those lawmakers on either side of the aisle.

WATCH: Woman Licked Ice Cream, Put It Back on Grocery Shelf — Now She Faces 20 Years in Jail

By The Blaze. A woman who thought it would be funny to video herself licking the ice cream in a tub at a Walmart store and replacing it on the freezer shelf isn’t laughing at the prison time she’s facing. . .

Texas police on Wednesday said that they had identified her after detectives “obtained surveillance video placing a woman matching the suspect description in the Lufkin store on June 28 around 11 p.m.”

That charge could mean up to $10,000 in fines and 20 years in prison, if she’s convicted.

“Our detectives are working to verify the identity of the female suspect before a warrant is issued for her arrest on a charge of second-degree felony tampering with a consumer product,” said a police spokesperson.

Police are also trying to identify the male who shot the video and can be heard encouraging the women to lick the ice cream.

Police Find Girl Who Licked Blue Bell Ice Cream in Viral Video

By NBC News. Police in Texas said Friday that they found the girl who was filmed licking a tub of ice cream and returning it to a grocery store shelf in a viral video last week. . .

At least four women, including the person who lied about her involvement, had similar screen names and appearances, police said. Authorities had to rule each one out before finding the actual suspect.

Before police knew the girl’s identity, they said she could face a second-degree felony charge of tampering with a consumer product, which comes with a two- to 20-year prison term and up to $10,000 in fines, according to Texas state penal code.

Lufkin police said Friday that if the girl faces charges related to the incident, they will be “at the discretion of the juvenile justice system.” (Read more from “Police Find Girl Who Licked Blue Bell Ice Cream in Viral Video” HERE)

Kamala Harris Reverses Busing Position, After She Attacked Biden for the Same Stance

By USA Today. Sen. Kamala Harris on Thursday clarified her position on federally mandated school busing, saying it’s only necessary in cases where local governments are actively opposing integration.

Harris said that in the 1960s and ’70s, institutions “were literally working against integration of our schools.” That’s why she supported busing then, she said, but now thinks it should just be a “tool” available to local governments and school districts to address segregation.

“Today it is very rare that we require the courts or the federal government to intervene,” Harris told reporters Thursday before a campaign event in Indianola, Iowa.

Her stance on busing came under scrutiny after last week’s debate, when she went after former Vice President Joe Biden for his stance on busing while he was a senator. Biden said he was in favor of voluntary busing but opposed federally mandated busing. During the 1970s and ’80s, however, Biden actively worked against busing efforts and was an outspoken critic of the tactic.

But Harris muddied the waters Wednesday when she told reporters she too did not support federally mandated busing and supported it only as an option for local governments. (Read more from “Kamala Harris Reverses Busing Position, After She Attacked Biden for the Same Stance” HERE)

Biden Laughs at Kamala Harris Shift on Busing: ‘Our Positions Aren’t Any Different’

By Fox News. Former Vice President Joe Biden had a good laugh during an interview aired Friday in response to California Sen. Kamala Harris’s shift on busing following their tense exchange at last week’s Democratic debate.

In what became her most memorable debate moment, Harris challenged Biden’s opposition to federally mandated busing when he was in the Senate, telling him she benefited from the program to integrate schools. The face-off produced Harris’ “That little girl was me” remark that drew widespread media attention. . .

“It’s so easy to go back 30, 40, 50 years and take a context and take it completely out of context,” Biden told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. “I get all this information about other people’s past and what they’ve done and, you know, I’m just not gonna go there… we should be debating what we do from here.”

He continued, “For example, this whole thing about race and busing. Well, I think if you take a look, our positions aren’t any different as we’re finding out.”

“With Sen. Harris who says she sees it as a tool, not a must or all circumstance,” Cuomo said. (Read more from “Biden Laughs at Kamala Harris Shift on Busing: ‘Our Positions Aren’t Any Different'” HERE)

Watch: Communists Burn American Flag, Assault Secret Service Outside White House

Members of the Revolutionary Community Party burned an American flag outside of the White House on Thursday shortly before President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” speech. They then threw the flag on multiple Secret Serviced agents.

A veteran grabbed the half-burned flag and attempted to put it out, clearly upset at the Communists’ gesture. Secret Service eventually used a fire extinguisher to put out the fire.

According to the Washington Examiner, flag-burning activist Gregory “Joey” Johnson and two others were arrested for the stunt.

Johnson made a name for himself when he won a 1989 Supreme Court case that made flag-burning legal. He recently received a $225,000 settlement from Cleveland, Ohio for being arrested for bringing a flag at the 2016 Republican convention.

Why Liberals Need to Shut Their Faces About Tanks Appearing During Trump’s Independence Day Event

Right now, we have a near Chernobyl-level style blow up over tanks and armored vehicles being part of the Fourth of July festivities this week. President Trump ordered it. It was a great decision. And the fact that the Left is triggered by this means that he should have ordered more tanks for the event. Tanks have been present for victory parades before. The optics is fine. No one cares about that. Americans are patriotic and they like seeing tanks. The only people who have problems with all of this are the Democratic Party and their allies in the media because Trump has taken over the event. He can do that. He should do that. And the Left just needs to shut their face over this.

If a Democrat took over this event and put tanks on display, there would be no criticism. After the Democratic debates, I don’t want to hear lectures from Democrats about patriotism. They care more about illegal aliens than citizens. That was made explicitly clear.

. . .[I]t’s a tank. Get over it. What do these morons think is going to happen? A coup? This is why no one trusts the media. It’s overreactions to this, among many other things they do poorly. They’ve shown they cannot cover this White House properly and this was a guaranteed move that would trigger the Left. Again, elections have consequences. We won. You lost. This isn’t Tiananmen either. Just shut up, watch the tanks, the fireworks, and enjoy the Fourth, liberal media if you can, you horrible excuses for human beings.

Here’s What Happened to the Vegas Police Officer Who ‘Froze’ During 2017 Massacre

An armed, veteran police officer who stood idle for several minutes as the Las Vegas gunman slaughtered dozens of concertgoers in 2017 was fired by the department months ago, officials revealed Tuesday.

Cordell Hendrex was fired March 20 from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, spokesman Larry Hadfield told the Associated Press.

While officials did not reveal additional details on what led to Hendrex’s termination, police union president Steve Grammas said the officer was fired because of his actions during the Oct. 1, 2017 mass shooting. . .

In video footage released by police, Hendrex could be seen leading a police trainee and three Mandalay Bay security guards to the sounds of gunfire coming from the hotel’s 32nd floor, where Paddock set up his sniper post, but not confronting the shooter. In body cam videos, Hendrex is seen directing the group, with their handguns drawn, on the 31st floor. . .

The actions of Hendrex — which drew comparisons to those of Scot Peterson, a former school resource officer who failed to act during the 2018 Parkland high school shooting — came into the spotlight following records releases. Grammas told the Review-Journal the night of the massacre that officers were “up against something that nobody has been up against before.” (Read more from “Here’s What Happened to the Vegas Police Officer Who ‘Froze’ During 2017 Massacre” HERE)

Watch: Ilhan Omar Won’t Release Tax Returns; Promotes Unhinged Trump Attacks

By PJ Media. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has refused to answer any questions about her tax return issues that the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board recently discovered.

According to the board, Omar filed joint tax returns for the years 2014 and 2015 with Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, who she was not legally married to at the time. Omar was reportedly married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen, for those years but her tax returns were filed with Hirsi, which is a violation of Minnesota state law as well as federal law. . .

Omar also wouldn’t say why she had filed joint tax returns with a man she was not married to at the time. According to the AP, “while she has called for President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, her campaign did not acknowledge the AP’s request to release hers. Her campaign also did not answer a question about whether there might be issues with other tax returns prior to Omar’s marriage to Hirsi in 2018.” (Read more from “Watch: Ilhan Omar Won’t Release Tax Returns” HERE)

Ilhan Omar Promotes Ex-Hillary Aide’s Unhinged Anti-Trump Attacks

By Fox News. One of Hillary Clinton’s former top aides went on the attack against President Trump on Tuesday, seemingly to the delight of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

In the wild rant, Peter Daou claimed that under President Trump, the country endured a variety of conditions that many thought could never happen in the United States.

Daou, who also led the left-leaning outlet ShareBlue, has been an outspoken critic of the president and criticized the media in 2017 for its “disdainful coverage” of Clinton’s 2016 campaign. . .

Daou’s tweets echoed many of Omar’s previous criticisms of Republican leadership. She has, for example, accused immigration enforcement of “killing” children under Trump.

Earlier this year, Omar also branded herself as Trump’s “biggest nemesis” because she’s a “nightmare” for the White House that wants to use her “identity to marginalize our communities.” (Read more from “Ilhan Omar Promotes Ex-Hillary Aide’s Unhinged Anti-Trump Attacks” HERE)
