NFL Player Reuben Foster Arrested In Domestic Violence, Weapons Case; Was Apart of Police Protests Earlier

(Via The Daily Wire)


In his second arrest in one month, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested in Los Gato, California on Sunday on suspected domestic violence and weapons charges.


Bleacher Report reports:


Sarah Ravani and Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle first reported the news Sunday, noting Foster is being held without bail. Robert Salonga of the Mercury News added Foster was also charged on suspicion of possessing an assault rifle….


According to Ravani and Branch, Foster was also arrested on Jan. 12 while in Tuscaloosa, Alabama—where he attended the University of Alabama—for second-degree marijuana possession. The second-degree marijuana possession in Alabama is a Class A misdemeanor.


As Twitchy points out, Foster was among a group of 49ers who followed the lead of their former teammate Colin Kaepernick in protesting “systemic racism” and police brutality during the performance of the national anthem at multiple games in the 2017 season.


Above is an image of Foster (#56) standing in solidarity in a group with his kneeling teammates during the performance of the National Anthem at their game against the the Chicago Bears on December 3. Below are shots of their protest before games against the Tennessee Titans on December 17 and the LA Rams on December 31.


​While getting arrested doesn’t necessarily negate anyone’s protest of what they perceive to be systemic problems in the criminal justice system, Foster’s situation certainly doesn’t help with public perception of the already divisive anthem protest movement. The protests, which dominated news coverage of the league for weeks last season, began during preseason in 2016 with Kaepernick’s declaration that he is “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color” and that racist police officers are “getting away with murder.”

Judicial Watch Calls DOJ ‘s probe of Hillary a “Sham”- Doubles Down on call for criminal investigation

Published

on

Tom Fitton says “Abedin Emails show an urgent need for a criminal investigation.”

Wednesday, a dedicated citizen who has filed numerous FOIA lawsuits against the Federal Government to force their transparency,  reminded readers that classified emails from Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton to her aide Huma Abedin were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop and again said they should be investigated.

“The fact that classified emails, between Clinton and Abedin, were found on Weiner’s laptop shows the urgent need for a real criminal investigation,” said Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch.

Previously Fitton had called upon President Donald J. Trump’s Department of Justice to start a “real criminal investigation”.

FLASHBACK:

In December, Judicial Watch told followers that they had received notice of the email release of emails that were overlooked in previous investigations.

This new release of a batch of 2,800 documents, proves to Fitton that a new investigation needs to be opened into embattled Hillary Clinton’s “Illicit secret server”, where Fitton believes he will find further proof of “pay to play” between the Department of State and the Clinton Foundation, under Clinton.

In January, Fitton made an appearance on the Tucker Carlson show and told host Brian Kilmeade, he has read about 140 emails and found 4 that were clearly classified so far before the State Dept server went down.

“The FBI found the emails last year, and 16 months later they have gotten them to us.  We are digging thru the records. You are not supposed to remove them or store them in unclassified systems,” Fitton said.

Anthony Weiner, who owned the laptop where they found the classified documents,  was found guilty of producing Child Pornography.

Fitton said that Weiner was involved in “stuff that made these classified documents at risk. We know that.  Why was Hillary left off the hook? They left this classified info on the internet equivalent of a public park bench, ” said Fitton.

“There was a sham investigation into these emails when Obama was there, we need the Justice Department to do a real investigation.  President Trump was elected to make sure this stuff was stopped,” said Fitton.

Not So Fast: Where are the Gun Running Records on Eric Holder?

Published

on

March 7,  Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Department of Justice (DOJ) would provide documents to Congress on the Obama-era program dubbed “Fast and Furious”.

The program allowed criminals to purchase guns in Phoenix-based gun shops in order to track them into Mexico.

The Justice Department, then run by Eric Himpton Holder Jr., declined to provide documents on the program to Congress in 2012 and was held in contempt of Congress.

Holder is the only Attorney General to be held in contempt of Congress.

Holder is an open border, pro-Amnesty, pro-Santurary city advocate, currently at the center of a battle between lawmakers in California, with the Senate wanting him to tight President Trump’s immigration policies, and the Assembly wanting him to go away.

Holder continues to be a social justice warrior using race against the American culture, and he has been active in a Democrat plot to redistrict States congressional lines, where Democrats need an edge to win US house races in 2018 and 2020. 

The decision to release the sought after documents ends six years of litigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The Washington Times reported on the murder of a Border Agent, Brian Terry , who was killed by a criminal who had been encouraged to get guns under Holder’s scheme.

According to  Washington Times, “Mexican authorities said Thursday they’ve arrested one of the fugitives wanted on murder charges in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — a shooting that drew new attention to the dangerous border and exposed a botched Obama administration gun crimes probe.

Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was part of a five-man “rip crew” that patrolled the border looking to rob drug smugglers, U.S. officials said. A team of agents got on their trail in December 2014 and the crew decided to shoot it out, killing Terry in the exchange.

Two of the weapons the crew used were part of the Obama administration’s botched Operation Fast and Furious, which had allowed straw purchasers to buy weapons in the U.S. and then smuggle them back to Mexico, where many ended up in the hands of the cartels.”
