MUGSHOT MAYHEM: WISCONSIN MAN THREATENS To KILL President OBAMA!!!


Meet BRIAN D. DUTCHER!!!

Thursday, July 2, federal authorities on Thursday charged 55-year-old TOMAH, WI resident BRIAN D. DUTCHER a TOMAH, WI, man with making threats to kill President BARACK OBAMA on today during his visit to LA CROSSE, WI!!!

DNT reports the threat was made in La Crosse on Wednesday, July 1, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in MADISON.
 
U.S. Attorney John VAUDREUIL said Thursday that he was being kept in a mental health facility under a civil commitment sought by authorities in LA CROSSE COUNTY.
 
On Wednesday, according to an affidavit written by UNITED STATES SECRET SERVICE Special Agent JEFFREY FERRIS, he approached a security guard at the LA DROSSE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
 
BRIAN D. DUTCHER said to the SECURITY GUARD;
"The usurper is here and if I get a chance I'll take him out and I'll take the shot."
Dutcher was interviewed by the U.S. Secret Service on Wednesday, confirmed the statement, and said he had made similar statements on his Facebook page. 
 
According to the affidavit, on Tuesday, DUTCHER wrote on FACEBOOK;
"That's it! Thursday I will be in La Crosse. Hopefully I will get a clear shot at the pretend president. Killing him is our CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY!"
Dutcher told a La Crosse police detective that his threat was serious and he would not have said what he said if he didn't intend to carry it out, the affidavit states.
 
In another Facebook post to friends, Dutcher wrote;
"I have been praying on going to D.C. for 3 months and now the upsurper is coming HERE. saving me a 800 mile trip. doing what I do for my daughter, so she can live free. pray for me to succeed in my mission. He added, "secret service is probably tracking my phone right now. I do not hide what I am doing, CONSTITUTIONALY."

KIM KARDASHIAN On ROLLING STONE!!!

Kim Kardashian Rolling Stone
Reality-TV Juggernaut/Selfie Queen/Actress/Mother/Wife/Mother/Brand Ambassador/Internet-Breaker/Entrepreneur/Video Game Subject Mrs. KIMBERLY NOEL KARDASHIAN WEST has something to say for the cover story ROLLING STONE: 11 REVELATIONS From KIM KARDASHIAN:
"I believe that I am so much smarter than I'm portrayed."
Here are some highlights from the interview:

 When Kim was a teen she dated Michael Jackson's nephew, TJ. It was her first experience in an interracial relationship — and not her last.At the time, her dad, Robert Kardashian, "explained to me that he's had a lot of interracial friends, and it might not be the easiest relationship. He said I should prepare myself for people to say things to me. . . . When I was in high school, I'd get magazines and see interracial couples and think, 'They are so cute.' I've always been attracted to a certain kind of look."

The most rebellious thing Kim did as a youngster? Secretly marrying."She was a teenager then, and teenagers do a lot of crazy things," Kim's mother Kris Jenner says of her daughter's marriage to music producer Damon Thomas at age 20. Kardashian explains it this way: "I was very happy at home learning how to cook and clean and keep a house. I knew that was where I wanted to end up."

Kim discovered her stepfather dressed in women's clothing in the garage when she was 22 — 12 years before the former Bruce Jenner announced to the world, "Call me Caitlyn.""I was shaking," Kardashian says. "I didn't know if I'd just found out his deepest, darkest secret, and he was going to come after me." Jenner called her on the phone a half hour later, and said, "One day, I'll talk to you about this. Until then, don't tell a soul." Eight years later, he said, "Let's have that talk." Before Kim's wedding to West, Kardashian talked to Kanye about it. "I wasn't sure if Bruce was going to be comfortable walking me down the aisle," she says. "He had just had his trachea shaved, so I knew something was going on." She was afraid of what West might think, but West calmed her concerns. "[Kanye] obviously moves to his own drum," she says. "He lives his life the way he wants, a really authentic life, and he was like, 'If you can't be authentic and you can't live your life, what do you have?' "

Kim was living with her father, O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian, when the actor/athlete was accused of murder in 1994 — and he briefly moved in, staying in Kloe's room."It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad's house," Kim says. Kris was close with Nicole Brown Simpson and believed that O.J. was guilty, creating a massive amount of tension in the family. "I definitely took my dad's side," Kim says. "We just always thought my dad was the smartest person in the world, and he really believed in his friend." As far as what she believes now, she says, "It's weird. I just try not to think about it."

Kim rolled with Paris Hilton's "celebutante" crew but never got caught exiting a car without her underwear. How?"I rarely wear underwear, but that never happened to me," she says. "I was never drinking. . . . I think that saved me a lot." Kardashian explains she doesn't drink or do drugs except for "five shots of vodka in Vegas every three years."

Music is a huge part of Kim's life — and she still makes mix CDs.
"As kids, we were at concerts like Michael Jackson every weekend. My first concert was Earth, Wind and Fire." As an adolescent, she liked Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder, and played Mary J. Blige and Jodeci on her bedroom record player. "I still make mix CDs," she says. "I have an older computer with a disk drive so I can do it." In high school, she was obsessed with 'NSync and the Backstreet Boys — "really obsessed, though I was more of a Backstreet girl." She also listened to Snoop, Dre and Ice Cube.

Kim and Kanye are "definitely opposites" and she respects his desire not to appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians."You can't expect me to jump up onstage and start singing — it's not what I do." But West has spent the past few years dressing his wife. "The makeover Kanye has given me is amazing," she says. And while she says West introduced her to wearing runway fashion, she believes she would have come to that decision herself eventually.

WHY This BLACK WOMAN DEFENDS The CONFEDERATE FLAG!!!

For many Americans, the CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG is an unmistakable symbol of slavery and oppression!!!
 
Meet NEW YORK native KAREN COOPER, a BLACK WOMAN who now lives in VIRGINIA, and for whom the flag embodies something else entirely.
 
WASHINGTON POST reports KAREN COOPER said;
“I actually think that it represents freedom. It represents a people who stood up to tyranny.”
KAREN COOPER is a member of The VIRGINIA FLAGGERS, an activist group that rejects the idea that the Confederate flag is a symbol of racism and hate.
 
The group was formed in response to a decision to remove Confederate flags from public view in several locations, including a Confederate memorial chapel on the grounds of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond and city light poles in Lexington.
 
Like the rest of the Flaggers’ 40 or so members, Cooper feels pride and reverence each time she displays the flag in public.
 
If the flag was a racist symbol, Cooper argues, she wouldn’t be an accepted member of a group composed primarily of white Southerners.
 
K. COOPER said;
“I’m not advocating slavery or think that, you know, it was right. It wasn’t, and none of my friends think it was. It was just something that happened. It didn’t just happen in the South, it happened worldwide. She added, slavery is 'a choice.' I say that because of what Patrick Henry said: ‘Give me liberty or give me death.’ To me, if we had went back to that kind of slavery, no I couldn’t do it. Give me death.”
A 2014 Winthrop University poll found that 61 percent of black South Carolina residents said the flag should no longer fly on the state house grounds, The Post’s Aaron Blake reported last week. And yet, 27 percent of black South Carolinians said it should stay — suggesting that the flag’s meaning remains a source of some debate.

UNIVERSITY Of SOUTH CAROLINA: BEAUFORT (USCB) student BYRON THOMAS says he understands why people hate the Confederate flag, but he doesn’t feel like the symbol is racially offensive to him, even after alleged Charleston shooter Dylann Roof was photographed posing with the flag.

BYRON THOMAS said;
“Dylann decided to use his Confederate flag for racism. My Confederate flag that I own I do not use for racism. I’m entitled to my beliefs and how I choose to use a symbol,” he wrote last week in an opinion piece for The Post. My Confederate flag isn’t racist; after all, I am black. I’m also an American who strongly believes in the constitutional right to free speech.”
Thomas said he hung the flag in his dorm room at the USCB to honor an ancestor who was a cook for a South Carolina regiment during the Civil War. When the university protested, Thomas fought back and eventually won.
 
BIRMINGHAM, AL, native Marine COURTNEY DANIELS argues that the Confederate flag and its “gorgeous colors” were hijacked by “a few cowards in bedsheets,” obscuring its rich history.
 
Last week, COURTNEY DANIELS wrote in the BIRMINGHAM NEWS;
“I revere it as a son of the South in a way that would confuse those on the outside looking in, who by the way are not entitled to commentary on which flag waves in our humid Southern breeze.”
Daniels noted that he didn’t always support the flag. He grew up believing that the flag was a symbol a racism until he started researching Civil War history and eventually concluded that he had “foolishly labeled every white person sporting the flag as a racist.” It is not the South, but northern cities like Philadelphia and New York, he argues, in which black Americans are defined by their skin tone.
 
C. DANIELS continued;
“In the South, we mingle. We play. We do like Willie Mays and ‘say hey’ no matter the color of the person sitting on the porch. I walk into my local grocery with my daughter and like the tick of the clock, I know I can count on an endearing ‘Hey baby doll, you need some help?’ from the attendant whose skin heavily contrasts mine.”
In Asheville, N.C., last week, hours after “Black Lives Matter” graffiti appeared on a monument commemorating SOUTH CAROLINA State CIVIL WAR Governor ZEBULON VANCE - a BLACK MAN stood nearby with a Confederate flag, defending it to anybody who would listen.
 
That man was former ASHEVILLE, NC, Chapter NAACP President H. K. EDGERTON, who is described as “one of few African-American members of the SONS Of CONFEDERATE VETERANS who is known for his love of the Confederate flag and protesting in favor of it.”
 
H.K. EDGERTON said;
“Black folks earned a place of honor and dignity with this flag; black folks and white folks in southland America are family. This is our flag. This was my message when I walked to Texas; that was my message when I walked to the White House. And it’s my message still.”
