Trump gave the US Marine who was held in Mexico money to help jumpstart his life after months of captivity.
What most people don’t know is that: Peggy Hubbard is a native of Ferguson, Missouri, but now lives in Rockville, Illinois. According to her Facebook page, she’s a Navy veteran who has since retired from working at the IRS. Her photos show her at events featuring bikers and the confederate flag.
Earlier in August 2015, Hubbard wrote that her cousin, Michael, had become the new police chief in East St. Louis. Fox St. Louis reported at the time that Michael Hubbard is a 19 year veteran of the East St. Louis department. The station says he was hired because of his “strong reputation for community policing and inspiring excellence through ethical leadership.”
Peggy Hubbard tears down #BlackLivesMatter on Don Lemon CNN . Woman Who Posted Viral #BlackLivesMatter Rant Hits Back at Critics: ‘Bite Me’. Peggy Hubbard, the woman who posted a #BlackLivesMatter rant that went viral, appeared on CNN tonight to tell Don Lemon why she thinks the movement has misplaced priorities.
Hubbard told Lemon that police officers across the country are worried either about being killed or being “the next Darren Wilson” because of the strong anti-police sentiment.
Peggy Hubbard had a very strong emotional reaction to the case of St. Louis officers fatally shooting a black 18-year-old who reportedly had a handgun and the death of a 9-year-old in Ferguson who was killed in a drive-by shooting.
It outraged Hubbard that activists protested for “the thug” and said, “Are you ‘fugging’ kidding me? Police brutality? How about black brutality. You black people, my black people, you are the ‘fugging’ most violent ‘motherfuggers I have ever seen in my life.”
She said the “black lives matter” mantra should be applied equally to black-on-black crime and elaborated, “327 homicides later y’all want to holler police brutality? Black people, you’re a fucking joke. You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals.”
She added, “You shoot at them, they’re gonna shoot at you.”

WARNING: Explicit language
New FOLLOW UP Reply to Viral Black Lives Matter Video :
Good morning everyone. I apologize for the language I used yesterday in my rant. Peggy was very upset yesterday because of the deterioration of our society and our neighborhoods and losing that little girl.
As a mother, wife and grandmother I was very upset. I have a grandchild that age and it broke my heart; because what if it was my grandson or grand daughter.
I apologize for my language. My mother did teach me better than that. I’m going to refrain from using that type of language.
What the American people know and what the families of victims of violent crime know is that this Administration has consistently and steadfastly placed the goal of amnesty above the goal of public safety. Time and time and time again that has been the fact…
If this Administration spent one-tenth of the effort on enforcement and protecting people from crimes and punishing people who are criminals who violate our immigration laws, rather than on amnesty we’d be a lot safer today. Many of the people who have been injured, robbed, or killed by illegal aliens would be alive today. That’s just fact and everybody knows it.
Alabamian (Alabaster) and Iraq War hero Noah Galloway, (NO Excuses) who lost his left arm and leg in a roadside bomb blast, delivered an incredible performance on Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) Monday night, bringing at least one judge to tears, and the audience to its feet.
Now a personal trainer and motivational speaker, Galloway doesn’t take excuses from his clients, fans and followers – and finds ways to get things done.
“You want a super hero?” Len asked after Noah Galloway and his partner Sharna’s short contemporary dance to Toby Keith’s “American Soldier,” “There it is.”
Monday night Galloway told the story of his “most memorable year;” sharing the night in 2005 he was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq:
“My most memorable year was 2005, on my second deployment to Iraq.”
Galloway and his former platoon leader, Lieutenant Jerry Eidson, then told the story of being out on a patrol in the night, attempting to see their surroundings in a hostile country with night vision goggles, when their Humvee rolled over a trip wire.
“It detonated a roadside bomb large enough it threw this 9,000 pound armored Humvee through the air.”
“Noah’s injuries were catastrophic,” said first responder Major Dennison Segui. “We didn’t think he was going to make it.”
Galloway woke up six days later on Christmas morning in Walter Reed hospital in Washington, D.C.:
“I was a physical person before the military. Once in the military, I had fallen in love with the job that I had, and suddenly I woke up and all that was gone,” Galloway said. “The career was gone, two of my limbs were gone, so I thought, ‘Well, there goes me ever being physical again.’”
Galloway said he tried to make it seem like he was ok, burying his grief, and drinking away his pain. Until one day he realized he couldn’t do that any more.
“This dance represents the journey of acceptance from the man I was, to the man I’ve become,” he concluded.
“I really looked in the mirror and quit looking at what I was missing, and paid more attention to what I still had left,” Galloway said, fighting to hold back tears. “I realized I had to make a change, and it had to happen fast; my kids were growing up.”
~ And when Noah looked into the mirror at the beginning of his dance, well that says it all ~ JP:
Megyn Kelly and Juan Williams tonight sparred on “The Five” over whether or not Hillary Clinton broke the law through her use of personal email as secretary of state.
If you think Juan looks stupid, it is because he is. And we stuck up for him, when it turns out NPR was smart to get rid of him! In this blogger’s opinion Megyn decimates Juan and I don’t even wanna give him a sentence here. I believe Megyn is the only worthwhile primetime on FNC. Heck, mostly all 24 hrs. I rarely watch FNC anymore since it became MsM and jock TV.
Kelly argued that the law says it’s a violation to willfully conceal records:
“She’s got all the documents on her computer, FOIA requests are coming in, congressional demands are coming in, litigation requests are coming in, she doesn’t produce any of the documents. How is that not concealment?” Kelly asked.
The House passed H.R. 240. The bill funds the Department of Homeland Security without the policy rider that blocks President Obama’s executive action on immigration.
THIS is what he said: Excuse the caps, its CSpan *The transcript for this program was compiled from uncorrected Closed Captioning.
ACTUALLY. WE ARE NOT THREE SEPARATE BUT EQUAL BRANCHES OF THE GOVERNMENT. THE ABUSE OF THE EXEC TESTIFY ORDER HAS DIMINISHED CONGRESS AND THE ABUSE OF THE SENATE RULES HAS DIMINISHED THIS HOUSE. WE ARE NOW REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL ALLOW US TO PASS. AND WE ARE — AND THE SENATE’S REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL NOT VETO. THIS IS ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION. WE HAVE THREE MORE DAYS IN WHICH WE CAN CONSIDER LEGISLATION THAT UPHOLDS THE RULE OF LAW, THAT RESTORES THE BALANCE OF POWERS. WE SHOULD TAKE THOSE THREE DAYS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS A DAY THAT WE WILL REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, THAT THE COUNTRY IS LOOKING TO US RIGHT NOW TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL UPHOLD OUR OATH OF OFFICE. I CALL UPON EVERY MEMBER OF THIS HOUSE TO BE AN OATH KEEPER. I YIELD THE BALANCE OF MY TIME.
“The abuse of the executive order and abuse of the Senate rules has diminished this House.” - Gary Palmer
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) in a statement saying:
“The will of the American people cannot be forever denied. Republicans will have to come to realize that it falls on their shoulders to give voice to the just demands of the American people for a lawful system of immigration that serves their interests, defends their jobs, protects their security.”
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Gary Palmer voted against a bill that would allow for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funds to go toward President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action concerning immigration, and is deeply disappointed that the bill passed:
“I have no higher priority as a member of Congress than restoring Constitutional governance. When it comes to funding DHS, the focus has been on immigration, but that is really not the issue. The real issue is the separation of powers set up by our Constitution. I believe the President, the Congress and the Courts should have the power given to them by the Constitution but not one power more.
“I am pleased that a court has given an injunction against President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order, and I hope that will result in this illegal order being permanently struck down. However, it is not the sole function of the judiciary to uphold the Constitution. Congressmen also take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. This vote was not about politics, but about keeping my oath.
“Congress can and should pass legislation to secure our borders and fix our immigration system, but nothing in the law justifies unilateral action by the executive. The Constitution forbids the executive from unilaterally making law, and that is precisely what the President is attempting to do. I have consistently opposed measures that would legitimize President Obama’s unlawful executive action and I am deeply disappointed that this bill has passed.
Sen. Robert Menendez hands down got the most enthusiastic reception of any speaker so far at AIPAC’s annual conference.
I’d say you could barely hear the New Jersey Democrat on Monday night but for the whoops and shouts, except that Menendez has a preacher’s style and his rich tenor and rolling cadences rode the cheering like a rodeo cowboy. He was in control, and everything he said was crystal clear.
So what happened?
Well, for one thing Menendez is the Democrat who puts the “bi” back in partisanship, a one-man bulwark against the notion that hewing to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s Iran-skeptic precepts makes you a Republican.
His tough talk was just the tonic for a lobby battled by perceptions that it is increasingly identified with the GOP.
“I can tell you one thing,” he said. “As long as I have an ounce of fight left in me, as long as I have a vote and a say and a chance to protect the interest of Israel, the region and the national security interests of the United States — Iran will never have a pathway to a weapon. It will never threaten Israel or its neighbors, and it will never be in a position to start a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Not on my watch!”
“And, when it comes to defending the U.S.-Israel relationship, I am not intimidated by anyone — not Israel’s political enemies, and not by my political friends when I believe they’re wrong,” he said.
Then he took on Rice.
I take issue with those who say the prime minister’s visit to the United States is ‘destructive to U.S.-Israel relations.’
“And tomorrow I will be proud when I escort Prime Minister Netanyahu to the House chamber to give his speech! To show him the respect he deserves from every American who cares about our relationship with the only true democracy in the Middle East.”
