Beto: The shooter of El Paso was inspired by POTUS to KILL

Beto O’Rourke asserted during his opening declaration at the Democratic discussion on Thursday that President Trump was accountable for last month’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

According to Beto, the horrific assault, which killed 22 individuals and wounded 24 others, demonstrates “just how hazardous Donald Trump is.” “Two things became crystal evident to me on August 3rd, in El Paso, Texas, and I believe it gave this nation a turning point,” Beto started.

“The first is just how hazardous Donald Trump is–his presidency’s expense and effect,” continued O’Rourke.

“A racism and violence that had long been part of America was openly welcomed and directed to my hometown of El Paso, Texas, where twenty-two people were killed, tens more grievously wounded by a man carrying a weapon that should never have been able to buy in the first place–inspired by our president to kill.” “The second is how insufficient our politics is to meet the threat we face. “The bitterness, the meekness of the time, the incentives to attack each other and attempt to create differences without distinctions, mountains from the mole hills.” “We have to be larger. We need to see obviously, we need to talk honestly and we need to take decisive action. That’s what I’d like to do for you as United States president. Thank you. “Reports from Washingtonexaminer.com: racism, hatred, and all the other poor things that apparently never existed before Trump were to blame for the killing, O’Rourke said at the case in his opener. Maybe at that time ABC should have tossed up one of those sweet fact-checking TV news that has become so fond of. It might have said something like: “O’ROURKE: TRUMP TO BLAME FOR EL PASO (THERE’S NO PROOF HE WAS).” Apparently, last month’s shooter was concerned with “unchecked companies” involved in a U.S. government “taking over,” job automation, and an internet conspiracy theory about a deliberate effort to replace immigrants from native-born white Americans.

The domestic press, as well as Democrats like O’Rourke, basically overlooked those first two prongs.

In what was supposed to be his “manifesto,” the shooter also wrote that immigration and his other obsessions “predate Trump and his presidential campaign.” He said explicitly that he blamed mass immigration on both Republicans and Democrats.

O’Rourke doesn’t care. In this race, he’s drowning, and he wants to grab something, even if it’s a cruel lie.

The Loop Fantasy Football Update Week 3: Dalvin Cook iffy, Christian McCaffrey less so

The Loop Fantasy Football Update Week 3: Dalvin Cook iffy, Christian McCaffrey less so

UPDATE: 1:02 p.m. Saturday
They were the consensus top two picks in fantasy drafts this summer, but the Vikings’ Dalvin Cook and Carolina’s Christian McCaffrey are not looking that well lately.

McCaffrey pulled a hamstring in Thursday night’s victory over Houston, and the No. 1 running back in the NFL will be out a “few” weeks, according to the team. That means Chuba Hubbard will move up for the Panthers, with Royce Freeman seeing some action. Only the former is worth rostering for now.

As for Cook, the Vikings haven’t updated his status since yesterday, when he missed another day of practice. So he is still listed as questionable with a sprained ankle.

Since the Vikings are playing at 3:25 tomorrow, you will NOT get to see their inactive list when you set your lineup in the morning. So you’ll have to keep an eye on the Twitter. If you’re counting on Cook, it might behoove you to have a backup plan ready with someone playing late Sunday or Monday. Or to have Alexander Mattison, which goes without saying …

In other Saturday headlines: it’s looking as though rookie Trey Sermon may finally get his first big workload with the 49ers. Elijah Mitchell is considered doubtful, so it will likely be Sermon on Sunday night in their big game against the Packers.

A few notables have been cleared to start. Dallas WR Amari Cooper and Cleveland wideout Odell Beckham Jr. are said to be good to go, as is Indy QB Carson Wentz, he of the double sprained ankles. You can certainly ignore the latter.

Ruled out for Week 3 are Tampa Bay WR Antonio Brown and Pittsburgh WR Diontae Johnson, and Bengals wideout Tee Higgins is doubtful.

Arizona star DeAndre Hopkins is listed as a game-time decision, as is another wideout, the Jets’ Jamison Crowder.

ORIGINAL POST: 9:30 a.m. Wednesday

From the moment the 2021 season began, it was only a matter of time. Just how long would it be before rookie Justin Fields replaced Andy Dalton as the starting quarterback for the oft-quarterback challenged Chicago Bears.

The answer proved to be about 76 minutes of game play. That’s when Dalton left last Sunday with a knee injury, and the Ohio State phenom headed into the game amid rousing cheers at Soldier Field.

How did he do? Not that well.

Sure, Fields made a nice run to help clinch the game in the fourth quarter. But that was about it for his heroics. He completed only 6 of 13 passes for 60 yards. Fulfilling the fantasy dreams of nobody.

But Dalton is said to be “week to week,” so Fields is in line to get his first NFL start Sunday against Cleveland. Not a great matchup. The Bears have to start the former Buckeye, but wise fantasy mavens should probably wait before taking that plunge.

Other quarterbacks and teams are feeling the Bears’ pain:

Carson Wentz (Colts) — Indy’s QB pulled off the rare double by spraining BOTH of his ankles. There’s no way either you nor the Colts should count on starting him this week in Tennessee. And if Jacob Eason has to replace him, you can forget about starting any Colts except, maybe, for Jonathan Taylor.

Tua Tagovailoa (Dolphins) — The Deshaun Watson trade buzz heated up again immediately after No. 1 went down with injured ribs in the shutout loss to Buffalo. Tagovailoa has been ruled out this week, and the Dolphins might be better off with Jacoby Brissett at the helm.

Tyrod Taylor (Texans) — Houston’s QB had been surprisingly sensational in the first game and a half, and now he’s on injured reserve with a bad hammy. The Texans will likely be starting rookie Davis Mills the next three weeks. So expect our preseason pick to be the NFL’s worst team to start playing like it. Immediately.

Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers) — Pittsburgh’s QB has had an assortment of issues through the years, and now he has a “pectoral issue.” While he’s certainly not a top 10 quarterback anymore, Big Ben could have been a decent streaming option for this week against the Bengals’ defense. But you can scratch that thought.

Derek Carr (Raiders) — The early candidate for Comeback Player of the Year, Carr is questionable this week because of an ankle injury. But with 817 yards and four TD passes so far this season, Carr might still be worth grabbing off waivers and starting against a reeling Miami team.

SITTING STARS
Despite winning Monday night, Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers was in a testy mood. That will be true Sunday night when they play the rugged 49ers defense. … Tom Brady is a must start, but the Buccaneers’ QB will cool off a bit against the Rams in what could be an NFC championship preview. … New England RB Damien Harris will find the going tougher against New Orleans than he did last week against the J-E-T-S … Two other running backs who will have a tough day: Washington’s Antonio Gibson vs. the Bills and the fumble-prone Clyde Edwards-Helaire vs. the Chargers

MATCHUP GAME
Denver is a surprising 2-0, and QB Teddy Bridgewater and RB Javonte Williams will look almost unbeatable against the lowly Jets. … Same goes for Sam Darnold, the QB for 2-0 Carolina, against the Texans. … Philly QB Jalen Hurts has been up and down, but he’ll be very, very up vs. Dallas. … The Vikings’ meager pass defense will help Seattle’s D.K. Metcalf keep up with receiving partner Tyler Lockett. … Running backs we particularly like this week are Pittsburgh’s Najee Harris vs. Cincinnati, the Chargers’ Austin Ekeler vs. Kansas City’s poor run defense, and Arizona’s Chase Edmonds vs. Jacksonville.

INJURY WATCH
The ranks of running backs have taken a hit in the past week. Las Vegas’ Josh Jacobs (toe/ankle) is “very questionable” this week, according to Raiders coach Jon Gruden. So Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber will see more duty. … San Francisco’s Elijah Mitchell has an ailing shoulder, but he might still be the 49ers’ healthiest runner. … The Rams’ Darrell Henderson has injured ribs, and his status will be up in the air until the weekend. So Sony Michel is getting warmed up. … Two prominent receivers are already out this week: Cleveland’s Jarvis Landry (knee) is on injured reserve and will miss at least three weeks, and Houston’s Danny Amendola (hamstring) will sit out Thursday night’s game against Carolina. … Players listed as questionable include Dallas WR Amari Cooper, Pittsburgh wideout Diontae Johnson, Cleveland WR Odell Beckham Jr., Jacksonville WR Laviska Shenault, Philly TE Zach Ertz and Giants tight end Evan Engram.

THE DEEPEST SLEEPER
This isn’t the deepest dive we’ve ever taken, but it’s obvious that former Viking Cordarrelle Patterson is becoming a solid dual threat for the Atlanta Falcons. The receiver turned running back had two touchdowns last Sunday against Tampa Bay, one rushing and one receiving, and he ran for 54 yards in the season opener against Philadelphia. And this week’s opponent, the New York Giants, has an average-at-best defense. The Falcons’ No. 1 back, Mike Davis, has been especially ordinary with 87 rushing yards over two games. So we’re guessing we’ll see more of No. 84 looking out of place in the Atlanta backfield.

Gophers (again) forced to play without top receiver Chris Autman-Bell

Gophers (again) forced to play without top receiver Chris Autman-Bell

The return of Chris Autman-Bell has been interrupted.

The Gophers top receiver missed the first two games with an ankle injury but returned to have a team-high four receptions for 76 yards in the 30-0 win over Colorado last week.

Then on the first play of Saturday’s game against Bowling Green, Autman-Bell caught a pass for nine yards, got tackled and got up limping. He stayed in the game for the next play, but then exited. He had the joint tapped up and he tried to get loose but didn’t return during the first half.

Without him and with poor offensive line play, Minnesota’s offense sputtered with only 94 yards and trailed Bowling Green 7-3 at halftime.

It’s the same spot Autman-Bell hurt during an horse-collar tackle in training camp practice Aug. 12 and he missed the first two games, making his return to play Sept. 18.

BRIEFLY

The Gopher will pay Bowling Green $1.45 million to play the nonconference game, according to the contract between the two programs. The U will pay the same sum to the Falcons for them to return for a game in 2025. Defensive tackle Rashad Cheney missed his second straight game after playing in the opening two games. The reason is unknown. …. Linebacker Cody Lindenberg, who played in the first three games, had a protective boot on his left foot Saturday. … Linemen Curtis Dunlap Jr. and MJ Anderson were dinged up vs. Buffaloes, but played against Bowling Green.

Netflix’s latest ‘Stranger Things’ teaser introduces viewers to creepy ‘Creel House’

Netflix debuted its newest “Stranger Things” trailer during the company’s first global TUDUM fan event on Saturday. (Netflix)

(NEXSTAR/NEWS10) – On Saturday, Netflix released a teaser for the upcoming fourth season of “Stranger Things,” this time inviting viewers to an entirely new and likely sinister setting, which of course, the main cast will soon start snooping through.

The trailer’s debut is part of Netflix’s TUDUM fan event that opens in the 1950s, on a set of new characters introduced as members of the Creel household.

Something is clearly off about the family’s patriarch, as he’s briefly seen standing over the lifeless-looking bodies of two children.

Fast forward to the ‘80s, and the gang from Hawkins obviously finds their way into the now-abandoned house.

Little else was revealed in the fourth-season trailer, aside from a 2022 release date.

Netflix previously confirmed the return of the original cast, including David Harbour, whose character’s fate was left uncertain at the end of the third season.

Joining the series for this newest nightmare is Robert Englund, best known for playing Freddy Kruger in the “Nightmare on Elm Street” series.

Englund will play a character named Victor Creel, a man who had been “imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s,” according to the official “Stranger Things” social media channels.

In addition to the new “Stranger Things” teaser, Netflix debuted trailers and exclusive scenes for new films, new shows, and returning series.

Fans can learn more on Netflix’s recap of Saturday’s TUDUM event webpage.

Carriage horse collides with vehicle in NYC; incident prompts calls to end rides

Carriage horse collides with vehicle in NYC; incident prompts calls to end rides

MANHATTAN (WPIX) – A recent injury to a carriage horse in NYC has renewed the debate over their presence around Central Park. 

On Thursday, the horse collided with a black sedan. Witnesses on the scene said the horse collapsed and remained unconscious for several minutes, according to a statement from advocacy group New Yorkers for Clean, Livable, and Safe Streets (NYCLASS).

Footage shared by the advocacy group showed the horse kicking and struggling to get off the ground after regaining consciousness. Another showed the destruction and bloody aftermath of the incident.

Police said it was the horse’s first day pulling a carriage in Manhattan.

Christina Hansen, a carriage driver and spokesperson for the industry, said the horse, named Chief, was startled when a “diaper extension” he was wearing came loose and touched his hind legs, sending him running into a parked car. He was “promptly” seen by a veterinarian who treated the horse for scrapes and one cut that required stitches. She later said a vet again checked on the horse Friday evening.

“It’s newsworthy because it happens so rarely. The horse is fine,” Hansen said.

A group called the committee for Compassionate and Responsible Tourism, meanwhile, has previously highlighted such incidents when campaigning for the city to transition to electric carriages. 

Susan Wagner, with the committee, shared her observations on electric carriages from a trip to Guadalajara, Mexico. She said it’s better for the drivers too, as they can work longer hours if they choose, with less expenses. Naturally, it avoids putting horses in dangerous situations, too.

The drivers of the horse carriages, however, question why the city would want more vehicles in the park after removing cars.

The city regulates all aspects of the horse-carriage industry. Adding electric vehicles to the tourism industry would require new legislation. 

During Mayor Bill de Blasio’s term, he and the New York City Council enacted additional regulations for horse-drawn carriages. Horses currently get 15-minute breaks every two hours, and cannot work longer than 9 hours per day. Five weeks vacation is also required.

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Gov. Kathy Hochul Saturday announced the latest round of communities to achieve certification as part of New York State’s Climate Smart Communities program, which supports local efforts to meet the economic, social, and environmental challenges posed by climate change.

By taking meaningful steps to mitigate and adapt to climate change, 11 local governments have reportedly met the criteria to be recognized as leaders for the first time. Additionally, three communities already in the program recertified and increased the number of certification points earned during the most recent round of review.

The actions announced Saturday during Climate Week 2021 are said to support New York’s ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 85% by 2050, as outlined in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, or CLCPA. The announcement was made in the city of Glens Falls, which achieved bronze-level Climate Smart certification.
 

“Our Climate Smart Communities program empowers local governments to take bold action to meet the challenges driven by our changing climate, and I commend these communities for implementing effective measures to help meet the ambitious goals of New York’s landmark Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act and for setting an example for other municipalities to follow,” Gov. Hochul said. “I particularly wish to congratulate the town of New Castle, New York’s very first community to adopt the Climate Smart Community pledge, on achieving certified-bronze status and bringing us one step closer to a cleaner, greener future.”

New York’s newly certified (and recertified) Climate Smart Communities listed by region:

Capital District
Albany County (bronze)
City of Glens Falls (bronze)
Town of Queensbury (bronze)

Long Island
Town of East Hampton (recertified bronze)

“From devastating hurricanes pummeling the East Coast, to destructive wildfires consuming communities out west, climate change demands that we take action. We need an all-hands-on-deck approach that requires contributions from all levels of government. I applaud these newly certified Climate Smart Communities helping to combat the climate crisis by acting locally and bolstering New York State’s national climate leadership,” said DEC Commissioner and Climate Action Council Co-Chair Basil Seggos.
