President Donald Trump delayed Air Force One’s departure from Indianapolis on Wednesday until after he was able to talk with a motorcycle officer who crashed in the motorcade to the airport. Initial reports said Trump called the officer during the flight back to Washington, but the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police tweeted Thursday that the president delayed the flight. “#BREAKING: Thank you @Potus for delaying wheels up to speak with injured Officer Turner. #ThankYou,” the tweet read. Robert Turner, a police officer from Indianapolis, broke an ankle in the fall on Interstate 70. A photographer captured the officer on the ground with his uniform ripped. Police released a cellphone video of Turner in the hospital taking the call from the president. He was wearing a neck brace, but laughed and appeared to be in good spirits. The White House initially said Trump called during the flight back to Washington to check on the officer’s condition and thank him for his service. Trump was in the city to push his so-called “middle class miracle,” and sell his plan to overhaul the nation’s tax code and revive his legislative agenda.
Glad this officer is recovering. And, major kudos to President Trump for taking the time to call this downed officer. That’s called leadership, folks! To see a photo of the officer laying down, as well as that video of him on a gurney talking to the President, click on the text above. Excellent!! 🙂
An illegal alien living in the sanctuary city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was sentenced for stealing Americans’ identities to collect more than $800,000 in tax refunds. Abdou Koudos Adissa, an illegal alien from the Republic of Benin, was sentenced to four years in federal prison for his part in a tax fraud scheme, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced. According to court records, Adissa was convicted of conspiring to commit access device fraud in March for his involvement in the tax scheme that ran from February to June 2014. During that time, Adissa was a part of a group that stole Americans’ identities to file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service. Adissa’s co-conspirators filed the fraudulent tax returns, stealing more than $800,000 in refunds which was then deposited onto Green Dot pre-paid debit accounts. That money was eventually sent to Nigeria through Western Union. When federal officials raided Adissa’s apartment in Philadelphia, they found 106 of the Green Dot cards. The illegal alien registered all the debit cards using stolen American IDs before giving co-conspirators the cards’ direct deposit information so they would be able to direct the fraudulent tax refunds to the cards. Adissa called Western Union some 63 times to transfer the stolen $800,000 to Nigeria. Following Adissa’s release from federal prison, he will be handed over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency for deportation.
Identity theft is a HUGE problem in our country. And, we find that Nigeria seems to be associated with a lot of these stories. Just glad this illegal alien piece of garbage was caught. He’ll do some time in prison, as well he should, before being deported.
A Tennessee businessman is pulling TV advertisements for his business that air during NFL games for the rest of football season, citing the “unpatriotic” NFL protests surrounding the national anthem. WTVC reports that Check Into Cash founder Allan Jones, a native of Cleveland, Tennessee, is pulling commercials for his businesses—Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, and U.S. Money Shops—for the rest of the NFL season. “Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior! TAKING A STAND…NOT A KNEE!” Jones wrote on Facebook. Other business owners are also taking a stand against those who take a knee during the national anthem. Sports bar owners in Virginia and Louisiana are no longer showing NFL games until NFL players, coaches, and owners stop protesting the national anthem. Fans are also hitting the NFL in the purse by deciding not to watch games. The NFL’s Sunday Night Football experienced record-low ratings for the season because of the teams’ decision to protest.
More and more people, and businesses, are voting with their wallets, and telling the NFL what to go with itself right now. Here at The Daily Buzz, we support wholeheartedly those taking a stand against those NFL players, and team owners, who are taking a knee to protest out great American flag and our National Anthem. And, if their self-righteous, arrogant, entitlement-minded, and frankly disgusting actions offend you as much as it does us, we encourage you to NOT spend your dollars on NFL gear, tickets, and other NFL related merchandise until the NFL pulls it’s head out of its collective ass.
