The extreme violence has left police on edge and many attendees the victims of violence. We got wind of this footage late last night. It turns out it was just the tip of the iceberg. As the protests wore on, reporters and bystanders posted multiple incidences of violence to social media
MSNBC correspondent Jacob Rascon painted a picture of what awaited Trump supporters outside of the rally: Here a woman who engaged anti-Trump protesters was pelted with eggs. Protesters tried to jump the barricade. Here they are assaulting police officers, while a Mexican flag waves in the background:
The constant here is an environment of total anarchy, and a police force that was either indifferent or overwhelmed. In fact, several mainstream news sources suggested it was the former.
So far, it seems like no one was seriously injured. But this is only the beginning. And as many pointed out, it may actually end up helping Trump
When asked to respond to the unspeakable violent atmosphere at the event, San Jose’s Mayor, a Hillary Clinton supporter, BLAMED TRUMP:
The mayor, a Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, criticized Trump for coming to cities and igniting problems that local police departments had to deal with.
“At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign,” Liccardo said.
The presumptive GOP nominee spoke for about 50 minutes at the rally, sniping at Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and calling her speech on foreign policy earlier in the day “pathetic” and “sad to watch.”
It seems that the liberal left are absolutely desperate to get rid of Trump, no matter at what cost, however when looking at the footage and pictures it is clear it is really the Obama food stamp people causing all the violence too afraid of loosing their free stuff which includes cellphones. – Extra Comment

DANNY MACK MCWILLIAMS [GM KRNH FM Country (The Ranch 92.3)] (Kerrville, TX) Subject: Sad day. Jim, Just read about Mike Lawrence passing away. I am shocked and saddened by this news. My partner, Angel, and I upon Mike’s and Dana’s departure followed this beloved radio duo into the KGEE 100 morning slot. He and Dana had set a high bar, and we had to work very hard to achieve what success we had. While in the Permian Basin, I had the chance to get to know Mike, when he and Dana took the reins of the KICKS morning show, and while reading the news of his passing a couple of things came to mind. I would have to say he was not only a great radio personality but a good man to boot. He was a tough competitor with a very good heart. He always treated me well, while competitors and beyond. He even offered to help me a few years later when I was out of work, suggesting I return to the Basin. It is folks like Mike who helped make the radio years so memorable. My thoughts and prayers are with Dana and their family. “Danny Mack” McWilliams

BILL CHERRY [Realtor, In late 1950s Music ’til Dawn host on WWL-870] (Dallas, TX) Jim, That’s troubling. What broadcasting teaches that is the most important is confidence and how to alleviate stage fright — from times when you enter a room full of people at a cocktail party, to your job interview, to speaking before an audience. I have virtually no stage fright. It sole foundation is from my radio days beginning when I was 14. I couldn’t have been nearly as successful had I had to look at people rather than just a mike when I first started. Since then, I have spoken before audiences for years, I have played the piano as a professional for more than 50 years, and on and on. What Parkland College is doing is ignoring that teaching and letting students practice preparing and speaking before audiences is what it’s all about. Who cares how many people are listening to the station? The college needs to re-evaluate that idea. I’m planning to write them and say so. Regards…hope Suzie gets well soon, Bill Cherry

Houston, Texas – Laus Deo
John the Baptist’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees followed ironclad traditions of fasting and praying as signs of closeness to God. When they fasted, they made sure there was no joy associated with it. When they prayed in public, their faces were somber and serious. Holiness, in their minds, was not something to enjoy but to measure a disciple’s devotion to God, often in comparison to others.
But Jesus and his disciples were different. By not overemphasizing fasting and prayer, Jesus crossed a theological line that was taboo for most rabbis. Instead of merely following tradition, Jesus challenged the status quo. His opponents concluded he was out of line.
Jesus used wedding celebrations to illustrate his point. Weddings were about celebration, laughter, food, and dancing—joy and happiness for the bride and bridegroom.
Jesus changed the focus from fasting and praying as ends in themselves to the means of entering into the joy of the Lord, who celebrates life with us all. When traditions are drained of purpose, they become mere rituals. John’s disciples and the Pharisees missed the joy of the Lord hidden in plain sight. We have a reason to celebrate with joy! We have the marvelous Savior, who desires life “to the full” for all his followers(John 10:10).
Jesus, help me to use spiritual disciplines only to increase my joy in you
and with others, not to compare or judge.
May I celebrate your goodness and grace every day. Amen.
