    "This is a great day in our household. This is not a political statement. This is a statement of unity," Brooks said. He wouldn't divulge which songs he was considering playing but added that he won't be playing "We Shall Be Free" as he played it during President Obama's 2008 inauguration. Brooks was also asked to perform during President Trump's 2016 inauguration, but mentioned that he couldn't do it as he had a tour date. Prior to Monday's announcement, Brooks had three dates on his touring calendar, beginning with a Feb. 27 show in Las Vegas, where he's scheduled to...

    “When we have a vote on the House floor, there is no way in the world I’m going to be voting to ratify the Electoral College votes from states where I believe that illegal votes have distorted the will of the people in those states who have cast their votes illegally,” Brooks added. “And we’ll see how that goes. It is not the Supreme Court who decides who is the President of the United States, under the Constitution, it is the Congress who makes that decision.” Such an outcome could force the 50 U.S. House state delegations to determine the...

    At a press conference on Wednesday, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, a Democrat, announced charges against former Atlanta Police Officer Garret Rolfe, who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks Friday night outside of a Wendy's restaurant. Rolfe now faces charges that include felony murder and aggravated assault. Police found Brooks intoxicated and passed out in the drive-thru lane. When police tried placing Brooks under arrest, Brooks attacked the officers, stole a taser and used the weapon on police while attempting to escape on foot. These crucial facts were largely absent in Howard's remarks during the press conference, which nitpicked the...

    The death of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta is a terrible event, and my hope is that this helps us all see more clearly what happened. May we give Officer Garrett Rolfe and Officer Devin Brosnan the presumption of innocence while GBI finishes their investigation and while the legal system gives them due process.

    **SNIP** The Washington Examiner reached out to EPM for comment. About two hours after publication, the company released a statement that said Rolfe was fired because she violated company policy. "As an employer, it is imperative to maintain a safe environment for all employees. Melissa Rolfe's termination was a director result of her actions in the workplace and violation of company policy," the statement said. "While working with Melissa as she transitioned to a leave of absence granted by our organization, we discovered she violated company policy and created an uncomfortable working environment for many of our employees.

    The Fulton County, Ga. district attorney who charged fired former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe with felony murder -- an offense that can carry the death penalty -- is facing a criminal investigation and a primary runoff in a difficult fight to remain in office after his challenger secured more votes than he did in the June 9 primary. Fani Willis, who previously worked for Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, got 42 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary to Howard's 35 percent, triggering a runoff that will happen on Aug. 11. Willis' campaign has hammered a message...

    ABC News published a glowing piece about Rayshard Brooks, the man killed by former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe after he resisted arrest, assaulted an officer, stole his taser and discharged it, saying he was remembered for his “hard work and dedication to family.” The news outlet spoke with those who worked with him at a construction company in Toledo, Ohio, and his wife. Though ABC describes that he was in Ohio “tending to his father.” What's not mentioned, however, is that he had failed to notify his probation officer of his new address and a warrant was issued for...
  • DA Says Brooks Wasn’t ‘Threat’ Toward Cop He Shot Taser At, Said Two Weeks Ago Taser Is ‘Considered’ A ‘Deadly Weapon’

    Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard announced on Wednesday that the police officer who killed Rayshard Brooks last week was being charged with felony murder and that Brooks did not pose a threat to the officer even though Brooks fired a taser at the officer. The remarks from Howard come after he charged a police officer earlier this month “for pointing a taser” at someone because a taser is considered to be a “deadly weapon” under Georgia law. -snip Earlier this month, however, Howard announced charges against several police officers in a case about alleged excessive use of force against two college...

    1.) Cont... And What Deescalation Tactics For Civilians Does BLM Actually Support? 2.) If BLM thinks tasers aren't a deadly weapon, and they want balance and think deescalation is good, then to promote deescalation among civilians as well as the police, would one cop being allowed to have a taser already drawn in front while the other applies the cuffs from behind be a good thing to them? 3.) Nobody wants people to be shot in the back, but if this police power can be or is being eroded to even protect communities from even possibly deranged people fleeing, then...

    Country music legend Garth Brooks posted a picture of himself in a "Sanders" jersey after his packed show Saturday night in Detroit, which created a bit of misguided outrage and confusion online. Brooks wore the No. 20 jersey of former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders – a football legend in the city and NFL Hall of Famer – which caused some of his Instagram followers to mistakenly attack him for being a Bernie Sanders supporter.

    Flanked by members of the famed "Miracle on Ice" U.S. Olympic hockey team, President Trump celebrated the team's captivating 1980 performance at a campaign rally on Friday. Forty years removed from defeating the Russian hockey team in the semi-finals of the 1980 Olympic Games, Trump honored the U.S. team's historic victory by bringing captain Mike Eruzione and coach Herb Brooks's daughter onstage during a campaign stop in Las Vegas. The team stood behind Trump as the president ran through his stump speech and lashed out at the fake news media. The players wore red Make America Great Again hats and...

    Steuben County DA Brooks Baker is apologizing after the Chemung County 911 released audio of a phone call where Baker is heard berating and cursing at a dispatcher. Baker called 911 after picking up a dog off I-86 and was looking to connect with Animal Control. After what Baker calls a “tense phone call” between Baker’s wife and a male dispatcher, Baker spoke with a female dispatcher in the audio released on Facebook. While discussing with the dispatcher where he can hand off the dog, Baker became agitated and cursed at the dispatcher four times in a two minute phone...

    In the 1940s, when Mel Brooks launched himself into comedy, he invented a persona: “Crazy Mel.” Perhaps you remember Crazy Mel: He was exuberant, reckless, loud—a wild, comedic id. Carson loved him. So did his audience. When Crazy Mel wasn’t vamping on TV, he was mugging in photos, including one gloriously zany shot in which he appears wild-eyed and open-mouthed, like a zoo animal hit with a tranquilizer dart. Silently, he conveys shock, fear, and aggression. “Tragedy is when I cut my finger,” Brooks once said. “Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.” That crazy photo...

Show your face where we can all see the travesty that you are trying to foist on America & the degradation of our Republic that you are engaged in.” Brooks added, “We demand open...

    Mo Brooks, the Republican congressman from Huntsville who represents five north Alabama counties, is having a crappy morning. It even stinks, you might could say. Brooks has never shied from controversy and, on Thursday, he stepped in it again. Deliberately. And he even went so far as to make sure President Donald Trump knew about it. So enough of the bull. Brooks tweeted his thoughts about the whistleblower report released Thursday that made serious allegations against Trump – a report that has led his Democratic colleagues in the House to launch impeachment inquiries. That picture, attached to the Twitter post,...

    I often wonder who didn’t love Donald Trump. I often wonder who left an affection void that he has tried to fill by winning attention, which is not the same thing. He’s turned his life into a marketing strategy. As Michael Cohen said in his testimony on Wednesday, even the presidential campaign was a marketing campaign to build the Trump brand. In turning himself into a brand he’s turned himself into a human shell, so brittle and gilded that there is no place for people close to him to attach. His desperate attempts to be loved have made him unable...
