'Complicit': Democrats tied to crimes by illegals

This post is about the video titled 'Complicit' in which Democrats are correctly tied to horrific crimes committed by illegals. 

Cop-killer Luis Enrique Bracamontes via Chaos In Courtroom 

Video is embedded below. Mexican citizen and Sacramento cop-killer Luis Enrique Bracamontes AKA Marcelo Marquez AKA Julian Beltran, an illegal alien, a drug cartel member, and a convicted drug dealer who was deported twice (1997 and 2001), is shown smiling in court.

Bracamontes shot and killed two CA county sheriff's deputies in 2014. He is NOW ON TRIAL for those murders.

 CTH made note of this monster's "rampage" then... [which included] "shooting three police officers, killing two –- and shooting another civilian in the head during a botched carjacking."

...but as Katie Pavlich would point out, "[T]hanks to the Obama administration's new selective deportation guidelines and refusals by local agencies to comply with federal immigration laws, he's been able to stick around since the last time he got into legal trouble."

The two police officers that Bracamontes killed: 

Deputy Sheriff Danny Paul Oliver

End of Watch: Friday, October 24, 2014

[Quoting] Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver was shot and killed as he and another deputy investigated a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of a motel in the 2000 block of Arden Way.

A male occupant of the vehicle opened fire on the deputies with a 9mm handgun, striking Deputy Oliver in the forehead. The man and a female occupant then fled in the vehicle as his partner returned fire. A short distance away the male shot a civilian when they attempted to carjack a vehicle. They then carjacked two other vehicles as they continued fleeing the area.

After carjacking the second vehicle the pair fled up I-80 to Auburn, where they exited the highway and stopped on the side of the road. They were spotted by Investigator Michael Davis, of the Placer County Sheriff's Department, and his partner. As the two officer approached the vehicle the man opened fire striking both deputies. Investigator Davis succumbed to his wounds at a local hospital.

The female was arrested at the scene while the male subject was arrested several hours later after barricading himself inside a nearby home.

Deputy Oliver had served with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department for 15 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters. [End quote]

Detective Michael David Davis, Jr.

End of Watch: Friday, October 24, 2014

[Quoting] Detective Michael Davis was shot and killed while taking part in a massive manhunt for the murderer of Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

The subject who murdered Deputy Oliver, assisted by a female accomplice, carjacked a vehicle and fled up I-80 after killing Deputy Oliver. They exited the highway in Auburn, before stopping on the side of the road off of Maidu Drive. Investigator Davis and his partner spotted the vehicle and began to approach it when the male subject opened fire with an AR-15 rifle, striking both officers.

Both officers were transported to a local hospital where Detective Davis succumbed to his wounds.

The female subject was arrested at the scene while the male subject fled into a residential area. He was taken into custody several hours later.

Detective Davis had served with the Placer County Sheriff's Department for 15 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

Detective Davis' father, Investigator Michael Davis Sr., was killed in the line of duty on October 24th, 1988, while serving with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. Their line of duty deaths occurred exactly 26 years apart to the day. [End quote]

Other information, re: depth of those "complicit"

This was noted [8th paragraph -- see "Weeks"] in 2015:
...[W]hen an illegal alien (assisted, in part, by Obama's immigration policies) killed two California officers, Sacramento County Sheriff Danny Oliver and Placer County Investigator Michael Davis, Jr., Obama was silent again. As American Thinker's Jan LaRue noted in a November 2014 article 'Obama and Holder Ignore Cop-Killings While Obsessing over Ferguson Shooting':
"Neither President Obama nor Attorney General Holder has expressed a word of outrage over the murders nor expressed sympathy to the families. 
Oliver left a wife and two daughters. 
Davis is survived by a wife and four daughters." (Fb Note's comment section includes related information.)

As for the Ferguson shooting, the "Hands up, don't shoot" claim was proved to be a lie. It NEVER HAPPENED. But that didn't stop broadcast networks and print media from using it. In fact, we would later learn in the year that followed "[o]ther news outlets, left wing blogs and liberal politicians joined in advancing the false narrative."

NewsBusters and Media Research Center each documented this, and "Hands up, don't shoot" ranked as one of biggest 'Pinocchios' of 2015...

...but this MSM and OFA-propagated "fake news" BIG LIE still caused unexpected deadly consequences!

Cop-killer Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley made reference to it before he brutally ambushed NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos on the Saturday before Christmas 2014... this occurring THE SAME WEEK that President Obama was meeting with "reverend" Al Sharpton at the White House as Sharpton's protesters in New York City were chanting they wanted "dead cops"!

(Reminder: As 2014 came to a close, with our nation still mourning the two ambushed NYPD cops, President Obama would BLOW OFF attending these officers' Memorial to be in Hawaii vacationing.)


Personal note: When I first saw the video, I recognized Bracamontes immediately. My recollection of him as an Obama administration-era cop-killing perp might be because I already knew of complicit leftists among us who have already sided with terrorists and illegal felons. That, and Obama's legacy of words and actions which unconscionably placed more of our law enforcement professionals in the crosshairs.

The six men who died in search of Bergdahl

This is a simple from-the-heart post about the six U.S. Soldiers who died some eight years ago trying to find one of their own. Or maybe they knew better, but they still tried, because it was in them to never leave a comrade behind. For that alone, this post is for them.

The content that is presented here is nearly verbatim text, pulled from other links, as indicated. The focus is on recollections from family and friends, how they remember their fallen loved ones.

The thought here is recent news developments add to the burden these six Gold Star families carry, one that began with the dreaded knock on the door in 2009 to five years later when new light was shed on the circumstances of each U.S. Soldier's death.

May the grieving wives and mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and daughters and sons know that we will always remember the sacrifice these men made. And May God continue to give the families Strength, Comfort, and Peace.

Six U.S. Army Soldiers lost their life looking for Bowe Bergdahl. It is they who served with "Honor and Distinction."

2nd Lieutenant Darryn Andrews
Darryn Andrews, 34, of Dallas, Texas -- “If he knew you, it was always a bear hug. It didn’t make any difference,” said his mother, Sondra. She said he loved life, especially with his wife, Julie, and their 2-year-old son. The couple was expecting their second child when Andrews died...

His mother said he was lighthearted, energetic and “could put a fun spin on any situation.” He enjoyed scuba and sky diving, fishing and hunting, and he immersed himself in athletics, theater productions and church youth group while growing up in the Texas panhandle.

“We grew up with an enormous amount of pride for our nation. We passed it on to our children, never thinking we would pay the ultimate sacrifice.”

On 4 September 2009, [w]hile recovering a vehicle that was disabled, Second Lieutenant Andrews' Platoon came under heavy RPG fire. Second Lieutenant Andrews fatally placed himself between the incoming enemy fire and his fellow comrades. His courage under fire was essential in saving another Soldier's life, and saving the lives of five other Soldiers who were with him.

For his heroic actions, 2LT Darryn Andrews was posthumously awarded the Silver Star Medal, the third highest military decoration for valor.

At the age of 32, Darryn left behind his parents; his twin brother, Jarrett; his wife, Julie; his 2-year-old son, Daylan; and Jacey, his daughter who was born that following December.


Staff Sergeant Clayton Bowen
Clayton Bowen, 29, of San Antonio, Texas -- He joined the Army when he was 17 and served as a drill sergeant and a shooting instructor before he was deployed to Afghanistan.

About one month before an improvised explosive device ended his life, Clayton offered his fellow soldiers at a remote Afghanistan outpost a parcel that made their jaws drop. Addressed to him, the package contained a collection of heavy-duty construction tools the soldiers later would use to improve living conditions at the crude desert outpost, where plywood huts serve as sleeping quarters. “I’ve got connections,” Bowen, 29, explained.

Earlier, the 12-year Army veteran had asked his stepfather and mother, who publish a construction industry newspaper, to print an ad asking for donations. The tools had poured in, according to Buddy and Reesa Doebbler.

“He wanted to see if there was anything he could bring into the outpost to make their lives a little more normal,” said his mother. This act of generosity was one of the last in a history of such displays, relatives said.

Bowen was also a very good singer. “He was asked to try out for the 82nd Airborne All-American Chorus,” said Doebbler. “He passed the audition and I got to see him perform two or three times a year when the group would come to San Antonio.” Being a member of the chorus allowed Doebbler to preserve his voice. “I have two of the groups CDs from when Clay was a member. He was the only bass in the group so you could always hear him.”


Staff Sergeant Kurt Curtiss
Kurt Curtiss, 27, of Murray, Utah -- Curtiss was an 18-year-old Salt Lake Community College student when the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 occurred. The following day, he walked into an Army recruiter’s office and signed up.

“He just wanted to make a difference,” said his sister, Lynn Burr. “He wanted to help keep everybody safe, especially his family.”

His mother, Ruth Serrano, says during the last eight years he deployed twice to Iraq and had been in Afghanistan nearly a year. She said he loved his country and his service in the Army.

“He was infantry, so he was right in the middle of it. He was wounded a couple of times.”

His mother will always remember him as the boy who could make anyone laugh. “He was quite the joker,” she said. “He could cheer up anybody.”

Curtiss had many interests in life including his enjoyment of martial arts, dirt biking, 4-wheeling, jamming on his guitar and spending time with his family. He was a loving father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He was a caring person who always placed others before himself. He will always be remembered for his love, devotion, compassion and humor. He is loved by many and will always be his family’s number one hero.

Curtiss is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, a 9-year-old son and a 6-year-old daughter.


Private 1st Class Matthew Martinek
Matthew Martinek, 20, of DeKalb, Ill. -- Friends and family say Matthew M. Martinek had a sparkle in his eyes...

“If you were in a bad mood, he always did something to cheer you up y’know, one of those clowns,” said Ryne Jones, who worked with him at a car care center in Martinek’s hometown of DeKalb, Ill.

“He tried not to talk too much about what he was doing, but he said he liked helping people,” said his brother, Travis Wright.

The Bartlett High School football player graduated in 2007 and joined the Army the next year, following a family tradition that included his grandfather, uncle and two older brothers.

His stepmother, Char DeGand, said he loved the outdoors snowboarding, camping, all-terrain vehicles and had an impressive tan for someone stationed at Fort Richardson, Alaska.

She said he was an organ donor, helping to save other soldiers even after his death.

Martinek also is survived by his father, Michael; mother, Cheryl Brandes Ferguson; and brothers Frank and Michael Jr.


Staff Sergeant Michael Murphrey
Michael Murphrey, 25, of Snyder, Texas -- The AP reported that those who knew him said he had all the qualities of a good soldier. He was loyal, respectful and had a selfless sense of service. “He always prioritized his comrades’ needs and did more than his share of the work,” Brig. Gen. Keith Walker said at Murphrey’s memorial service, where hundreds of people packed the church and locals lined the streets, waving American flags.

The September 11 attacks inspired Murphrey to enlist in the U.S. Army, said Jeanie Rutherford, his oldest sister. He joined shortly after he graduated Snyder High School in 2003. “He knew what he signed up for and he knew what he was going to do. And he knew the sacrifice that it would be. He knew how proud we were of him. He knew how much he was loved.”

Rutherford said her brother was a laid-back, easy-going guy who loved his wife, his two children and the men he commanded. “He admired those guys. He loved those soldiers. He protected them before he thought about himself.”

Murphrey enjoyed hunting, fishing and motorcycles — pretty much anything outside, Rutherford said. She said he pushed himself to excel at anything he attempted.  Murphrey’s high school coach Chad Rogers remembered him as a proud athlete that could always be counted on. “He was an outstanding young man, he always had a grin on his face... one of those kind of mischievous grins, but one of those grins that kind of made you love him, too.”

Mourners at the First Baptist Church of Clyde wiped away tears as a slideshow flashed images of Murphrey growing up, from his own infancy to the birth of his son, Jaden, and his daughter, Cameron. Murphrey is also survived by his wife, Ashley; his parents, Elvie and Evelyn Murphrey; and his sisters Jeanie Rutherford, Wendy Stehouwer, Pearl McKay and Krisa Johnson.


Private 1st Class Morris Walker
Morris Walker, 23, of Chapel Hill, N.C. -- “What I think of first when I think of Morris is his smile because he was always smiling,” said Wanda Bordone, who taught him seventh- and eighth-grade English at Fayetteville Academy in North Carolina. “He had a great sense of humor, lots of friends.”

Walker was easygoing and an incurable optimist – ‘a ray of sunshine.’ He was on the varsity basketball team, served as student government treasurer and worked with a community service club at his high school.

“He didn’t have to be a star of anything,” said Barbara Lambert, his guidance counselor. “He just wanted to be a participant.” Another guidance counselor, Pam Little, said Walker approached life with an unusual serenity. “He had a peace about him that I find to be extremely rare in someone in high school,” she said. “He was always an optimist.”

Walker graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008. He was Carolina’s first alumnus to die in the war in Afghanistan.

Sam Rosenthal was one of his best friends at UNC. “He wasn’t scared of any physical challenge, and that was one of the reasons he thought he was suited for war, that he could be a warrior. He was physically and mentally tough. He eventually wanted to be Special Forces. He was ready to be in danger; he was ready to stare everything in the face.”

“He was just a joy.” ... “The last conversation I had with him, he was giving me girl advice thousands of miles away. He was still one of my best friends, and that never changed and it still won’t. ... It will in some regards, I can’t ask him stuff anymore.”


It is up to us to honor these men and keep their memory alive

President Trump didn't, BUT OBAMA DID

In view of all that has occurred since President Trump's Inauguration, it should be pointed out (again and again, and over and over) that "mainstream" media is handling him quite differently from the way they (literally) covered (for) Obama.

Consider the following only as it relates to media coverage of our ongoing fight against Islamic State footholds in Iraq:

• President Trump didn't "abandon" Iraq and "create the vacuum" that allowed ISIS to gain its foothold there BUT OBAMA DID.

• President Trump didn't ignore the intelligence community's assessments on the growing Islamic State then have that intel "cooked" (manipulated) BUT OBAMA DID. &

• President Trump didn't say it was a "promise kept" -- that he "ended" the war in Iraq. BUT OBAMA DID. *

What's posted above will be news to many. That alone is part of our problem, though it's a near certainty if President Trump had anything to do with enabling and emboldening an enemy we are still fighting, the TV "pundits" and talking heads would be reminding us of it, daily!

But when it comes to the former "preezy" that our in-the-tank "news" media both deified and adored? He continues to escape responsibility --  media keeps giving him a free pass. This is troubling and deceitful, because THE LIAR here WITH BLOOD ON HIS HANDS is Barack Obama.

Sheriff Clarke: "Fake news" born in #Ferguson

Sheriff David Clarke is correct.

"Hands up, Don't shoot" was "fake news."

And this lie had deadly consequences...

Case in point, Black Guerrilla Family (BGF) prison gang member Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley would cite the OFA-propagated lie four months later to "justify" his brutal execution of NYPD police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, their assassination occurring the same week Barack Obama met with "reverend" Al Sharpton at the White House... ...the same week Sharpton's protesters in New York chanted they wanted "dead cops."

The message was clear: Obama was signaling his intent to keep our law enforcement professionals in the crosshairs.

Sadly, that continues today.

Colin Kaepernick's protest is tragic irony

It is telling that the last high-profile individual to disrespect our flag and our national anthem became the sitting president, whose legacy of words and actions show he always intended to divide the country.

It is also a tragic irony that Kaepernick doesn't realize his protest is an admission that the last eight years have been an abject failure, that 'Hope and Change' was never the course this president set. And he now has the country exactly where he wants: On the precipice... in more ways than one.

PS- The next time Kaepernick is in the "film" room, he could invite Barack Obama to watch 'Remember the Titans' to learn something from one of its scenes about what it takes to come together.
