The Dale Jackson ShowPrep for June 3rd, 2016…

What the hell is happening…

Where is our perpetually offended press demanding the people supported by these animals calling for them to stop?

If Trump supporters were attacking people at Hillary rallies the media would be losing their mind.

Here they are

Trump rallies frequently feature violent confrontations between the candidate’s supporters and protestors. A black student was shoved out of one such event by a 75-year-old veteran in March, and a 15-year-old girl was pepper-sprayed at a rally in Wisconsin. A Connecticut man was arrested in April for threatening to bomb a Trump rally

The Huffington Post has kept a running tally of racist things that have happened at Trump events, and the list is long.

Again, these aren’t Trump supporters. They are Bernie/Hillary supporters.


A bit of good news for Mike Hubbard

Two business executives who each invested $150,000 in a debt-plagued printing company co-owned by House Speaker Mike Hubbard, testified today that they did not make the investment because Hubbard was speaker.

Great Southern Wood President Jimmy Rane and Hoar Construction President Robert Burton testified today in Hubbard’s ethics trial in Opelika.

Rane and Burton testified that Hubbard was a friend. At Hubbard’s request, both invested in Craftmaster Printers in 2012, when the company was at risk of bankruptcy.

“I’ve known Mike since 1984 and our relationship is very personal,” said Rane, who portrayed “Yella Fella” in TV ads for his company’s pressure-treated pine. “When I look at him I’m not seeing the speaker of the House of Representatives. I’m seeing my friend.”

Still going

Prosecutors are expected to call more witnesses today in the ethics trial of Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard.

During seven days of testimony so far, prosecutors have tried to establish that Hubbard used his public offices illegally to generate income, investments, clients and advice for his businesses.

Hubbard’s lawyers have claimed his consulting work and efforts to raise capital for Craftmaster Printers were separate from his position as speaker and that he relied on guidance from the Ethics Commission.

 Prosecutors have tried to prove, among other things, that Hubbard ignored that guidance.

Clinton eviscerates Donald Trump on foreign policy

Mrs. Clinton, whose campaign had grappled for weeks over how to handle Mr. Trump, seemed to find her footing as she addressed an audience in San Diego that laughed and cheered as she deconstructed Mr. Trump’s foreign policy pronouncements. They were, she said, “not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies.”

The speech, which mixed biting sarcasm and somber assessments of the foreign crises of the Obama years, unfurled what is likely to be the core argument that Mrs. Clinton will carry into the general election.

Her remarks were billed as a major foreign policy address, and she was flanked by a row of 19 American flags as majestic as those that often back Mr. Trump at his public events. Yet the speech was devoid of new policy prescriptions, and she skipped over difficult episodes during her tenure as secretary of state, including the NATO intervention in Libya and its bloody aftermath in Benghazi.

Instead she borrowed a tactic from President Obama, reeling off zingers that are catnip to cable-news channels. It won her the kind of sustained live coverage that Mr. Trump has enjoyed routinely but Mrs. Clinton has not, though the announcement by Speaker Paul D. Ryan that he planned to vote for Mr. Trump stole her thunder in the opening moments of the 30-minute address.

She said she imagined Mr. Trump was “composing nasty tweets” about her even as she spoke. And indeed he was: “Bad performance by Crooked Hillary Clinton!” Mr. Trump wrote. “Reading poorly from the teleprompter! She doesn’t even look presidential.”


100,000 need to worry about their water

The West Morgan East Lawrence Water and Sewer Authority has advised the approximately 100,000 people served by their water system not to drink tap water until further notice due to potentially hazardous levels of chemical contaminants PFOA and PFOS.

The EPA issued a health advisory May 19 that the chemicals could be harmful to humans at lower concentrations than previously thought, and Thursday morning the water authority board decided to issue the do-not-drink advisory on the recommendation of general manager Don Sims.

The utility provides drinking water for about 100,000 people in Lawrence and Morgan Counties and has about 10,000 direct residential customers.

This has been known since the 19th? What the hell?


The city of Madison spent $50k trying to defend the guys who tried to bury their own officer….

The City of Madison spent over $50,000 to defend senior police officers under investigation by a federal judge, but did not pay the legal bills of the junior officer who launched the whole legal tangle.

Madison paid just over $36,000 in legal fees to defend Madison police Chief Larry Muncey, who was eventually found guilty of contempt of court by U.S. District Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala. The judge fined Muncey $2,500 and he remains on indefinite administrative leave while appealing the unusual conviction.

Meanwhile, Madison city officials have not commented on any of this, despite repeated phone calls, emails and a couple contacts in person. Mayor Troy Trulock has not responded to inquiries from AL.com for several weeks, communicating through a secretary to say the matter was under investigation.

Madison city attorney Kelly Butler provided the amounts paid in legal fees after AL.com filed a records request with the city. Butler said she could not comment further and that the city would not provide access to other requested public information about the officers, including hire dates, salaries and any reprimands or commendations placed in their files.

Council President Tim Holcombe did return messages for comment as to why the city elected to defend the chief but not Officer Eric Parker.

“There’s really no explanation for it, other than they wanted (Parker) gone,” said Robert Tuten, Parker’s attorney, when asked this week. Tuten has said the Police Benevolent Association paid the legal bills for Parker.

Fire this guy.


The UCLA shooter had a kill list and a gun, but he has demographics that are uncomfortable for the media, so they have essentially dropped it.

The investigation into a murder-suicide on the UCLA campus took a more sinister turn Thursday when police announced they suspected the shooter earlier killed a woman in Minnesota then drove to Los Angeles to confront a professor he believed had stolen his work.

Detectives also believe that Mainak Sarkar, a 38-year-old former engineering graduate student, intended to kill a second professor Wednesday morning, but could not find him on campus, Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck said.

In a search of Sarkar’s home in St. Paul, Minnesota, authorities found a “kill list” with at least three names that included professor Bill Klug, the woman found dead in a Minneapolis suburb and a second UCLA professor who was not harmed, Beck said.

Sarkar shot and killed Klug in a UCLA engineering building, leading to a lockdown on the campus with 60,000 or more students and staff members. He then fatally shot himself.

Sarkar drove to Los Angeles from Minnesota with two guns and ammunition before he killed Klug.


Paul Ryan comes around and endorses Trump. No other options.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said he will back presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

In a column written for the Gazette/Xtra, Ryan wrote that he will be voting for the businessman-turned-politician in the November general election. His statements end months of controversy over whether the House’s top Republican would back his party’s bombastic nominee.

“As I said from the start, my goal has been to unite the party so we can win in the fall. And if we’re going to unite, it has to be over ideas,” Ryan wrote. “Donald Trump and I have talked at great length about things such as the proper role of the executive and fundamental principles such as the protection of life. The list of potential Supreme Court nominees he released after our first meeting was very encouraging.
