Thank A Cop In Your Town - Tues, Sept 8, 7:00 PM At #YourCopShop

(All opinions stated in this blog post are mine. My opinions do not reflect the opinion of any who choose to participate in the following action. I speak solely for myself; I do not speak for this movement in part or as a whole.)
***THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE NEW SCHEDULED TIME OF 7:00 PM***

Are you tired of OUR cops being KILLED, harassed, bad-mouthed, belittled, and "hated-on" by too many? I am too.

The following is one simple thing we can all do to show our cops that we LOVE them and that we have their backs.

Tuesday, September 8th, at 7:00 PM (in your time zone) show up at your local police station and THANK your local cops for being there for YOU. Give them a standing ovation and shake their hands. Call your local police department or sheriff's office and coordinate with them which would be the best time of day for you to show up. "Roll call" (shift change) at our local police division (Norfolk, NE) is at 6:00 PM, and that is why 7:00 PM has been selected to hopefully be able to "thank" as many officers as is possible at the same time.

It's time for those of us who support our police officers to SHOW UP and let them and their detractors know that there are more of us who support our police than there are of those who HATE ON or HUNT them.

Bring your children. Teach them the importance of police officers in society. Teach your children that cops do this job because they care about people...all people. Teach your children that their respect for officers is tantamount to any future interaction they may have with an officer. Teach your children to stay away from those who "hate cops". For it is most often those who "hate cops" who have had the most interaction with them because of their involvement in criminal activity! If you do not teach this to your children, you are basically teaching them to hang out with criminals. It really is that simple. Ask any cop.

The idea for this "All Community Police Appreciation" event was not my idea. It was an idea that was proposed in a large "local" (to me) public group on Facebook.

This is the original message that was posted to the group (I've contacted Wendy and have her permission to post the following screen shot - as well as her other message to the group which can be seen above):

When I've spoken with others who support police officers these few truths have become evident:
We recognize that all cops are not perfect.
We also recognize that neither are we.
We know that cops do the job they do because they want to help make our communities better for all residents.
Whether "their help" always turns out the best for US is NOT the fault of the officer.
It is ours.
If we speed, we expect a ticket.
If we attack a cop in any way, we expect that cop to do what is necessary to protect his or her own life, including the use of deadly force against us.
If we shoot at a cop, we expect them to shoot back at us with an aim to kill.
We don't blame them for shooting back at us, even if they kill us, nor do we understand those who do blame them for doing so.
We understand that we all have a responsibility to live by the same set of laws as every other resident of our community.
We believe no one is above the law.
This includes police officers and elected officials...on every level.

For "National #ThankACopNight" to come to your town you may have to organize it yourself, contact your local police department/radio/tv/papers to help spread the word, but, SHOW UP on...Tues, Sept 8th 6:30 PM and let those who protect you know that you appreciate them. This is a completely organic movement and if YOU don't plant it in your OWN community, it will never grow. It's time to get out of your comfort zone and make a difference.

It's time in America for people who have BELIEFS to start standing up for them. Stop hiding in the background and feebly hoping that another will pick up a cause you claim to care about so dearly. Our society is slipping away. You either grab onto it now or figure out a way to tell your kids or grandkids what you were doing when your America was lost.

#AllLivesMatter

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, September 8th at 7:00 PM on the front lawn of the Norfolk Police Division. Have a happy Labor Day weekend. When you return home from your fun weekend, you'll have another job to do. Please join us.

MUST SEE: "Restoring Unity" Crowd Parts & Cheers 89-Year Old Veteran As He Completes The March (VIDEO)

This weekend Glenn Beck's "Restoring Unity" march took place in Birmingham, AL. And the man on the right, 89-year old Roger Coit Chappell who served in the Navy in the South Pacific, participated, as in "marched in", the entire march. The march, which was approximately one mile, began at the 16th Street Baptist Church and ended at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham Saturday morning.

According to the woman in the photo, who is on Mr. Chappell's left, Penny Holley (who commented under my posting of the video below on Glenn Beck's Facebook page), Mr. Chappell "drove himself to the event from Utah! All by himself!". She also said that her and some of the other marchers "tried to get him a wheelchair or cart but he would have no part of it. He was determined to march the entire way."

Penny also told me, "At first he did not realize the crowd was cheering and clapping for him and when he realized it - it gave him strength to finish the march."

How COOL is THAT!?!?!

Excellent work, Mr. Chappell and THANK YOU for your service to the USA. You and your veteran brothers and sisters are truly appreciated and admired by so many of us.

According a post that Glenn made on Facebook last night, the "Restoring Unity" or #NeverAgainIsNow march march was the largest march in Birmingham since Martin Luther King, Jr.'s march in 1963:
I just saw a report on TV in Birmingham.
"Police say the crowd at the March was 20,000 to 30,000 and said that the Never again is Now March
IS THE LARGEST MARCH IN BIRMINGHAM SINCE MARTIN LUTHER KINGS MARCH IN 1963!!!
‪#‎alllivesmatter‬
‪#‎neveragainisnow‬
‪#‎SOMETHINGHASBEGUN‬

This is the video in which you can see the crowd separate and applaud "Warrior" (my nickname for him) Roger Coit Chappell as he's completing the march. Thousands of people were waiting in this line to enter the Legacy Arena where the "Restoring Unity" events following the march took place. All of them applauded Warrior Chappell as he made his way past them.


With Penny's permission, here are the relevant comments, in full, that she left for me on Facebook about this experience (I had stated under my video on YouTube that I "had no idea if this man participated in the march or not".) (ALL emphasis below, except on words in "ALL CAPS", is mine):
YES!! YES HE DID! He was in Group 13. My daughter and son were talking to him when our group started marching and I quickly saw that he was falling way behind. So my family and several others just let our group go on and we all stuck with him the entire way.

He had to sit and rest only a couple of times. As we rested the marchers passing by clapped and cheered and many stopped, shook his hand and thanked him. We tried to get him a wheelchair or cart but he would have no part of it. He was determined to march the entire way. He was getting tired by the time we reached the arena but when he saw the incredible reception he got, he just kept going. At first he did not realize the crowd was cheering and clapping for him and when he realized it - it gave him strength to finish the march.

MANY, MANY people approached him to shake his hand and thank him for his service! He is an amazing man!! It was an honor for me and my family to meet him.
He allowed our entire "little group" to escort him and stay with him for the rest of the event. And after it was all over he gave my family a helping hand and drove us to our hotel! My entire family has been so blessed to have met this man!!

She also said:
I was so honored. I don't care if you use my name or not....for me it was all about him. I am on his left helping him and was so captivated by him, his life, his determination, and his spirit!!!

I forget the details of his service but his name is Roger Coit Chappell and he served in the Navy in the South Pacific. Seems like he traveled from island to island sweeping mines or something like that. It didn't take long for it to be a whirlwind of events and lots of people talking.

I'm so happy you posted video of it. THANK YOU!! We were all so wrapped up in him and helping him I got no video or pictures of us during the March at all. There were so many people taking pictures and videos......I wish I could see them all.

What do you think about if I opened a Facebook page and we spread the word to ask everyone that took pictures and videos to post them to the page? He would be so touched and I know I would appreciate pictures/videos to memorialize the incredible day. I can't believe none of us got any while it was happening.

He was hoping to meet Glenn and tell him about a book he helped write - The War Against Christianity - that's what I mean by there is so much more to the story ..... He is an AMAZING MAN!!!

He drove himself to the event from Utah! All by himself!! He was all by himself at the event......that's why I just didn't have the heart to leave him as he started to fall so far behind the group. I'm not sure about how long the walk was.......maybe a mile or so. From the 16th Street Baptist Church to the Legacy Arena.

(As of the time of the writing of this post I do not yet know if Penny is starting a page on Facebook or not. I will update this post with a link to it if I become aware that she has started one.)

Thank you to you, Penny Holley, for commenting under the video I posted on Glenn's Facebook page. Hopefully, with the help of some other Glenn Beck fans, we can get this information TO GLENN! I, for one, would dearly love to hear more about "Warrior" Roger Coit Chappell's story. (In other words, Beck fans, please post this blog post ON Glenn's Facebook page. Thank you for doing so.)

***UPDATED*** Did THIS New Black Panther Kill A Harris Co TX Deputy Last Night? (PICS)

*****UPDATE 6:02 PM CST*****
Newly released (and corrected) mugshot of the person in custody - from the Harris County S.O. twitter feed:

But, I still think the guy from the NBP looks more like the man in the picture from the gas station's surveillance pic than Shannon J. Miles does.

*****UPDATE 5:00 PM CST*****
From CNN:
A suspect was arrested Saturday in connection with the execution-style shooting of Deputy Darren H. Goforth at a Houston-area gas station, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said. Shannon J. Miles is charged with capital murder. The motive is unclear.

A handgun has been recovered and tests show it matches the weapon used in the killing, Hickman said.
End of update.


Late last night, in Harris County Texas, Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth was murdered execution-style outside a gas station. The fat loser that killed him stood over him and shot him some more after he was on the ground. Deputy Goforth was a 10-year veteran of the sheriff's office and he leaves behind a wife and a 12-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son.

Harris County Texas (Houston) neighbors Waller County Texas (Hempstead) - I tell you this because on August 12th there was a New Black Panther protest outside the Waller County jail (where Sandra Bland hung herself while in custody). At this protest, members of the NBP chanted "Oink! Oink! Bang! Bang!" And, the NBP guy with the bullhorn said, "We're the wrong n*ggers to mess with. You gotta stop doin' what you're doin'...or we're going to start creepin' up on you in the dark of the night." (That audio can be heard in the video from the Houston Chronicle in THIS POST on Breitbart.)

This morning, CNN reported that a suspect is in custody for last night's murder of Deputy Goforth. After seeing the picture of the suspect that police have released (from surveillance video at the gas station) and watching the video of the NBP protest I think that the killer MIGHT be a member of the New Black Panthers...one of the members that was present at the NBP protest 2 weeks ago in Waller County Texas.

Screen shot from CNN video - Suspect.

Here's the video from Breitbart Texas:

SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON...

Here's a partial description of the suspect:
Sheriff’s officials believe the suspect is a dark-skinned male who’s about 5-feet 10-inches or 6-feet tall, 20-25 years old...

I know we won't know if this is the same guy or not until a better picture of the suspect is released, but the two look A LOT ALIKE to me. What do you think?

Sarah Palin - FINAL Night Hosting "On Point" - One America News (VIDEO)


Tonight was the final night of Sarah Palin's week-long guest-hosting stint on the One America News (OAN) show "On Point".

As a long-time Sarah Palin supporter, it's been my pleasure welcoming her into my home on a nightly basis. I subscribed to OAN via KlowdTV.

OAN definitely has a new fan in me. I love their format and I hear more news in ONE HOUR on OAN than I did in an entire day of watching FOX News (for comparison). I used to record ALL FOX News shows throughout the day (in case of breaking news - because I'm a breaking news addict) but, since I cancelled my subscription to pay television a few months ago, I've been looking for more online sources of news. I think I've found it with OAN (via KlowdTV).

The links in this post to OAN's website may not work because earlier today, when it was announced that Sarah Palin would be interviewing Donald Trump on "On Point" tonight, OAN's website CRASHED...and, it must have crashed HARD...because at the time of this writing (1 AM CST), it's STILL not working.

All the video from Sarah's final show guest-hosting "On Point" is below.

To find out where you can view One America News, go HERE.

If One America News is not available on your cable or satellite provider CALL THEM and request that it be added to their line-up. Call every day...until they add it. Don't just believe them when they tell you "it's in the works" or that "they are in the process of adding it" (that's what they tell you to stop you from repeatedly calling them). Keep calling them until it's been added! ;)

Here's a few specifics from tonight's "Final Thoughts" from Sarah on "On Point" (emphasis mine):
"We want good news to wrap-up a great week. It has been my pleasure guest-hosting on One America News."

"In my book, "Good Tidings & Great Joy", I covered legal cases (that were) brought about to gag and silence and otherwise just drive Christians out of the public square. One ludicrous case was brought about by the American atheists, a group crying that the steel beam cross that was formed from the wreckage of the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks, that it shouldn't be allowed in the 9/11 memorial museum."

"The intolerant left sued, claiming the display caused them, quote 'headaches, mental pain' and, get this, 'indigestion'. That was their legal claim. They argued that the whole thing was unconstitutional, too. The lawsuit was dismissed."

"But the leftist ne'er-do-wells they won't stop of course, pressuring, persecuting, filing frivolous lawsuits to try to destroy our One America's foundation. Trying to intimidate you so that you'll sit down and shut up and just swallow some 'fundamental transformation of America'. Who's mamma told them anyway that anyone's got the right to go through life unoffended? Well, buck up, lefties. You don't like intersecting scrap metal beams? Then, look away! Look away!"

"I am happy to tell you that cross now stays at the 9/11 museum. It stands as a symbol of true hope and good change and (as) a fundamental restoration of the greatest nation on earth. So, American atheists, with your owies and your indigestion, instead of a lawsuit, next time try Tums."

Sarah Palin - 4th Night Hosting "On Point" - One America News (VIDEO)

The fourth night of Sarah Palin's week-long guest-hosting bid at One America News (OAN) is nearly complete. Only one night remains. :'(

All the video from Thursday night's show is below.

To find out where you can view One America News, go HERE.

If One America News is not available on your cable or satellite provider CALL THEM and request that it be added to their line-up. Call every day...until they add it. Don't just believe them when they tell you "it's in the works" or that "they are in the process of adding it". Keep calling them until it's been added! ;)

Segment #5:



Here are a few "highlights" from tonight's last video, the "Final Thoughts" segment (emphasis mine):
"Leftist politicians never let a tragedy go to waste."

"Reports are, the killer, that as a gay, black man, he felt that he was targeted and persecuted, he said. So, he took action after the Charleston shooting in a black church."

"He said he wanted a quote 'race war'. So, did the president issue a statement about racial reconciliation like he did after Charleston? Nope. Not even close. He focused on something truly bizarre. He said, 'The number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.' What? His comment shocked a nation that was paying attention. In one breath, he managed to minimize terrorism, the 2nd Amendment, and the truth."

"We do a disservice to the mission of ending this violence if we just assume that we can eradicate evil in this world by (enacting) some sort of regulation or restriction that ties the hands of any good American. A president must rise above their emotional inclinations."

"Solely relying on others to get there in time to protect you? It is astoundingly unsafe and naive."

"These anti-self-protectors, these anti-2nd Amendment advocates, these anti-gun crusaders, they are the most naive, ill-advised, worst-of-the-bunch Pollyannas out there. And, they are hurting the cause of law & order in America."

"Friends, you'd better start clinging even more tightly to those guns, your God, your Constitution. And, while you're at it, pray. Do pray for all those affected by yesterday's tragedy."
