Cruz Campaign Raises $1.1M In First 22 Hours Following CNBC Debate

Ted Cruz Campaign Announces How Much Money It Raised In The 22 Hours After The CNBC Debate – The Blaze

The Ted Cruz campaign on Thursday announced it had raised $1.1 million in the 22 hours after the CNBC Republican presidential debate.

The average donation was $54, the Cruz campaign said.

.

.
Speaking to the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” the Texas senator said “this level of support shows just exactly how energized and excited people are by our campaign.”

“Whether it’s on the stage or on the stump, we are telling the truth to the American people about how broken and unaccountable Washington is, and how it’s going to take consistent conservative leadership to get America back on track,” Cruz said. “We are seeing conservatives begin to coalesce around my campaign.”
.

.
“It’s Tea Party groups, libertarians, evangelicals, social conservatives, and millions more who have been disappointed by the career politicians and lobbyists of the Washington Cartel,” he added. “People want to unite behind someone who will take on Washington and I believe that’s why we’re seeing such tremendous support.”

Most political pundits said that Cruz performed well during the Wednesday debate. He earned the largest applause from the crowd when he blasted the moderators for their conduct and came in first in TheBlaze’s online poll.

“It’s an honor,” Pearson tells The American Mirror, insisting he did nothing to warrant being blocked, except his most recent video released last week.

In the video, he accuses the president of playing politics with the Texas student who was suspended for bringing a clock to school that appeared to be a bomb.

“He’s used this child as a political prop,” Pearson said. “This president has used this child to push his radical, leftward agenda. And I think it’s disgusting, and I think many, many people agree.”

Pearson’s video has been viewed over 1.8 million times on YouTube.

UPDATE – 10:23 p.m.:

CJ says the White House issued a statement saying the president didn’t block him on Twitter. CJ responds here:

Cell Phone Thief Calls Cops To Complain That Her Victim Won’t Stop Following Her

Police: Robber Calls Cops Because Victim Won’t Leave Her Alone – KOMO

.
…………

.
If she had to do it all over again, a suspected cellphone thief probably wouldn’t call the police to complain that her victim was following her and refusing to leave her alone. But, you know what they say about hindsight.

According to the Seattle Police Department, the 20-year-old suspect called 911 around 4 p.m. Saturday from a gas station parking lot in the 6600 block of Martin Luther King Junior Way South. She said a man was following her and accusing her of taking his phone.

Officers arrived to find the suspect standing with a 21-year-old man, who had multiple cuts and bruises.

According to police, the suspect told officers she and her boyfriend were sitting near the 21-year-old on a Metro bus when he woke up from a nap, accused them of stealing his cellphone and attacked them as they ran from the bus.

But according to the 21-year-old, that’s not quite how it happened. He told officers he was sitting on the bus with his eyes closed when suddenly the music he had been listening to stopped. He opened his eyes to see the suspect and a man with his phone.

The 21-year-old said he asked the couple to return his phone only to have them punch and kick him in the head. He told officers the couple ran off the bus,, and he followed them. He said the other man kept running, while the suspect stopped to call 911.

According to police, the suspect denied taking the victim’s phone until officers noticed a phone-shaped bulge in her pocket. Officers reportedly found both the victim’s phone and three grams of crack on the suspect.

She was booked into King County Jail for investigation of robbery and drug possession.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

Maybe The President Of The U.S. Should Stop Following Porn Sites On Twitter… Just Sayin’

@BarackObama Follows A Porn Site, Maybe Should #Bemorecareful – Mediaite

Retweets may not be endorsements, but what about follows?

Barack Obama’s Twitter account – which, to be clear, is not managed by the POTUS himself, but by the Organizing for Action staff – is following Wicked Pictures, a producer of “award winning adult entertainment.” Featured titles: Skin Tight, Rebound, and Bikini Outlaws.

.
……….

Philadelphia comedian Pat House noticed the follow while conducting what was no doubt legitimate internet research, and posted this screencap:

.

Glen Tickle of Mediaite sister site Geekosystem did the digging and confirmed that Obama’s Twitter account does indeed follow the porn site.

Glen Tickle of Mediaite sister site Geekosystem did the digging and confirmed that Obama’s Twitter account does indeed follow the porn site.

It’s not the first time the account has been spotted following skin purveyors, either. Conservative Twitter dredger Twitchy discovered last year that Obama’s account followed @PlayBoyMan and @ILikeTitsDaily – the latter of which it still follows, despite having had the matter brought to the staff’s attention.

Obama’s feed follows over 660,000 accounts. Maybe time for some pruning?

Patriots Release Aaron Hernandez Following Arrest

Patriots Release Aaron Hernandez – Sports Illustrated

The New England Patriots have released tight end Aaron Hernandez after he was arrested Wednesday morning at his Massachusetts home.

.

The release comes just two hours after Hernandez was taken out of his home in handcuffs. Hernandez was arrested after four unmarked police cars pulled up to his home and placed the Patriots tight end into custody. The team called the release of Hernandez “the right thing to do” in a statement released on Wednesday:

“A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss. Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.”

.
Hernandez has spent his entire three-year career with the Patriots after being drafted in the fourth round in the 2010 NFL Draft. Last season, Hernandez caught 51 passes with 483 yards with five touchdowns. Hernandez has 175 receptions for 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns over this three years as a tight end in New England.

The Patriots signed Hernandez to a five-year, $40 million contract extension in August, 2012 with $16 million of that contract being guaranteed money as a signing bonus.
