    Unlike some Hollywood A-listers, Jennifer Garner certainly isn’t rooting for Trump to fail. In fact, she wants to help President Donald Trump make good on some of his campaign promises. The star said she knows that many people from rural communities voted for Trump. She traveled to her hometown in West Virginia last year and saw for herself how many Trump supporters were there.

    While police officers are getting murdered in Dallas and Baton Rouge, while others are under assault in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, while supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify the murders of police officers, the Democratic National Convention, AKA Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation. One mother who will speak will be Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, the “Gentle Giant” who burgled a convenience store, then attempted to grab the gun...

    --snip-- Jewel Miller said Legacy, born April 13, 2014, has been shunned by the Garner family, but it’s not just about the money her daughter is entitled to receive. “They knew she was his (Eric’s) daughter but they didn’t want the public to know so they could keep up the image of the happily married husband and wife together which was the farthest thing from the truth,” Miller told The News.

    Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell videotape. Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a secretly recorded conversation by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas. One of O’Keefe’s investigators poses as a Garner supporter with a hidden camera during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.

    Over 100 protesters marched through Oakland on Sunday against police brutality. The demonstrators held signs and blocked traffic while being followed by dozens of cops from the Oakland Police Department. The protest was mostly peaceful, but there were some tense moments and three demonstrators were detained by officers. The demonstrators held signs that read: "Black Lives Matter," noted USA Today. About 50 demonstrators performed a "die-in" outside a local Walmart and chanted "poverty is violence," while 100 people disrupted shopping in Emeryville, California, by blocking traffic and yelling, "Stop shopping. Shut it down." The protests were planned to coincide with...

    Catholic Theologians Protest ‘Deep-Seated Racism’ Of US, Compare Eric Garner To Christ A "statement of commitment to racial justice." More than 400 Catholic theologians signed a statement protesting the “deep-seated racism” of the US and compared Eric Garner to Jesus Christ.

    Daniel M. Donovan Jr., the district attorney in the controversial police chokehold case on Staten Island, appears poised to run for the seat in Congress about to be vacated by Representative Michael G. Grimm, and may face several adversaries if he does. Mr. Donovan, who impaneled the grand jury that cleared a police officer in the July death of Eric Garner, said in a statement on Tuesday that he was “very seriously considering the race.” But some other prominent Republicans and Democrats also expressed interest, either publicly or privately, in running for Mr. Grimm’s seat.

    A high school basketball tournament set to begin Monday in Fort Bragg has been thrust into the national discussion over police killings of unarmed black men, after Mendocino High’s girls team was disinvited because its players refused to stop wearing a T-shirt with the slogan “I Can’t Breathe” during warmups. The debate has pitted socially progressive high school students from Mendocino against a blue-collar Fort Bragg community still mourning the killing of Ricky Del Fiorintino, a Mendocino County sheriff’s deputy and popular wrestling coach at Fort Bragg High who was gunned down in March by an Oregon fugitive. The controversy...

    One of Eric Garner’s daughters marked Christmas Day by spreading personal information about an NYPD cop who was present during the chokehold death of her father — outraging officers still reeling from last weekend’s execution-style slayings of two policemen in Brooklyn. Erica Garner tweeted that cop Justin D’Amico was “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” and directed her 5,000-plus Twitter followers to a Web page that lists ­addresses for D’Amico and five possible relatives. The information was viewed about 500 times before Garner’s stunning tweet was deleted following inquiries by The Post.

    Two more men have been arrested for threatening New York police, including one who called the precinct headquarters of two officers killed as they sat in their patrol car and asked to speak to one of them, a police spokesman said on Thursday. The arrests bring to six the number of those detained for threats against the New York Police Department since officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were shot on Saturday by a gunman seeking revenge for unarmed black men killed by police. Tyrone Melville, 41, of Manhattan, was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly called the switchboard of...

    This is Philip Banks. Until recently he was the Chief of Department in the NYPD, the highest ranking black police office in the NYPD.

    Anti-cop protesters flood NYC despite de Blasio’s appeal By Georgett Roberts and Aaron Short Over a thousand anti-cop activists began demonstrating on Tuesday to shut down Fifth Avenue as people try to do last-minute Christmas shopping — even as Mayor de Blasio has called for a moratorium on the demonstrations, and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton blamed them for the deaths of two murdered officers. “NYPD, KKK, how many kids did you kill today?” chanted the protesters, who started on the sidewalk but have now moved into the streets of Fifth and Madison Avenue. The agitators started moving downtown on 5th...

While Ganim said that most of the people who had showed up were paying their respects to the officers, she added “I do, just in full disclosure, want to say that in the last couple of minutes, for the first time today, we’ve seen protesters come out here and start yelling at groups of police who are mourning their slain police officers.”

    Bill de Blasio, like his progressive political idol Barack Obama, is finding out that you can’t do the New Politics if you don’t pay attention to the old politics. In Obama’s case, it was a failure to recognize the threat posed to him by Republicans who didn’t buy into his calls for a post-partisan partnership with Congress. For New York’s ambitious liberal mayor, it was an inability to keep long-simmering tensions with the city’s traditionally powerful police department from boiling over in the last few days. Just over a year after sailing into office with 72 percent of the vote...

    As the New York Police Department mourns two of its own, Mayor Bill de Blasio pleaded for a pause in protests and rancor amid a widening rift with those in a grieving force who accuse him of creating a climate of mistrust that contributed to the killings of two officers. De Blasio called on Monday for a halt of political statements until after the funerals of the slain officers, an appeal to both sides in a roiling dispute centered on the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of white police officers. “We are in a very difficult moment....
