Watch: Child Left In Hot Car Rescued By Cops. Then Her Mother Shows Up And This Happens…

It seems to be happening with almost epidemic frequency — young children being left alone in hot cars while a parent goes shopping. In just the last few days, a handful of disturbing incidents have come to light, with some resulting in charges being filed against the mother who went off and left a helpless youngster in a vehicle heated to a potentially dangerous temperature by the pounding summer sun.

About ten days ago, the video of a Kansas woman breaking a car window to rescue a child from sweltering heat went viral. Oregon authorities on Thursday reported investigating three separate incidents where mothers had allegedly left children in hot cars, despite outside temperatures climbing to near 100 degrees. An Oklahoma woman was arrested and jailed this week on a charge of child neglect after police say she left her one-year-old daughter alone inside a van while she went to a Walmart.

And now comes a video of an incident in New Jersey where a mom reportedly left her young daughter alone in a hot vehicle while she shopped with a second child.

The discovery of the “soaking wet” girl, her rescue from the vehicle, and the arrival of the startled mother on the chaotic scene in a Costco parking lot were all caught on camera. By clicking on the video above, you can watch what happens when a sheriff confronts the mother, who was later arrested and charged with child endangerment.

Watch: White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Admits To ‘Merely Repeating’ Planned Parenthood Talking Points

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted that the administration’s response to the damning Planned Parenthood videos that have been released over the last few weeks has come from the organization’s public comments, not from any investigation on the part of the White House.

Earnest was asked by Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering where he was getting his information that the videos were fraudulent and distorted:

I’m merely repeating what I’ve seen that they’ve [Planned Parenthood] said, and has been reported publicly about what they’ve said.

Earnest also said he suspected that someone in the White House had watched the Planned Parenthood videos, and that they were “grossly distorted” and “selectively edited,” even though he hasn’t seen them himself.

In this case, the truth apparently doesn’t matter, and Planned Parenthood’s word is good enough for them.

Watch: She Gets Asked The One Question A Democrat NEVER Wants To Hear, And It Gets Awkward…

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s face began to turn the color of her dress when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews threw her off-script, busted her for trying to spout tired talking points, and insisted that she answer a question that put her in an awkward spot for which she obviously wasn’t prepared.

Wasserman-Schultz, the Florida representative who serves as the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), was pressed by the clearly frustrated host of Hardball to explain the difference between a Democrat and a socialist. The discussion on Thursday night’s show related to Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist who’s gaining traction in his challenge to Hillary Clinton for the party’s 2016 nomination for president.

As TheBlaze notes in its coverage of the tense exchange: “Matthews first began questioning Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.) on whether presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist, would be given a slot on primetime to speak at the Democratic National Convention.”

Matthews kept after Wasserman-Schultz until she finally blurted out an answer – you’d have thought he had a GOP spokesperson on the hot seat. But then the interview came close to going off the rails entirely when Matthews — a long-time Democrat loyalist who used to be chief of staff for House Speaker Tip O’Neill — insisted on getting an answer to his question:

What’s the difference between a Democrat and a socialist? I used to think there was a big difference. What do you think it is?

That’s when Debbie tried to play dodgeball on the show called Hardball. By clicking on the video above, you can see for yourself how the interview took on a decidedly downhill course.

What do you think the difference between a Democrat and a socialist is? Let us know in the comments section below.

BOMBSHELL: Mosby’s Freddie Gray Case May Have Just Blown Up In Her Face With 2 HUGE Claims

Baltimore State’s prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, may have a huge problem, if not an explosive scandal, on her hands if defense claims in just-filed court papers prove to be true.

The Baltimore Sun reports that defense attorneys for the “Baltimore Six” police officers charged by Mosby’s office in the Freddie Gray case have raised serious questions about whether the prosecution has properly turned over relevant evidence that could exonerate their clients.

The most shocking defense claim brought to the attention of the court on Thursday, according to the newspaper account, is that Mosby’s office is intentionally withholding “information indicating that Freddie Gray ‘attempted to injure himself’ during a previous arrest.”

Gray died in April after suffering a severe spinal cord injury, supposedly while being transported in a police van. Six officers who were involved face charges that range from misconduct to second-degree murder. The prosecution’s case against the six rests largely on the belief that Freddie Gray suffered his fatal injury because of police misconduct.

The newspaper report says the bombshell the defense just dropped could undermine the case that Mosby has prominently put herself out in front of since day one:

In their filing Thursday, the defense attorneys said prosecutors have withheld “multiple witness statements from individuals who stated that Mr. Gray was banging and shaking the van at various points” after his arrest April 12, as well as “police reports, court records, and witness statements indicating that on prior occasions, Mr. Gray had fled from police and attempted to discard drugs.”

In addition, reports the Sun, another key pillar on which the prosecution’s case against the Baltimore Six rests has to do with the knife that police found in Freddie Gray’s possession the day they arrested him. Was it or was it not an “illegal” weapon?

[Defense attorneys] also said Mosby was told by police that a knife found on Gray was spring-assisted -— and thus illegal -— before she brought charges against the officers.

In announcing the charges on May 1, Mosby said the knife was legal, and Gray should not have been arrested.

Western Journalism has published a number of reports that detail criticisms of State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby for her controversial actions in relation to the Freddie Gray prosecution. Those criticisms include Mosby’s alleged rush to file charges that have been called overreaching and unfounded, as well as her apparent self-aggrandizing publicity seeking in relation to the case.

Freddie Gray’s death while in police custody touched off days of rioting, looting, and arson that rocked Baltimore and added volatile fuel to the fire of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Will Mosby’s rush to file charges against the Baltimore Six blow up in her face? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Man At Lake Feels Something Brush His Feet. Now One Family Is Eternally Grateful

A 4-year-old girl is alive today because Angelo Mondragon turned from a vacationer to a hero while at Colorado’s Lake Windsor last weekend. The 32-year-old plumber was wading in the water when something bumped up against him that would change his life forever.

“I saw the bottom of a baby’s foot float up,” he said, recalling that when the object bumped into him, his initial response was to kick it to see what it was.

The father of two reacted instantly. He screamed for the child’s family and for bystanders to help him with the little girl as he frantically pulled her out of the water.

The toddler, Sitlali Hernandez, was unconscious, turning blue, and barely breathing, Mondragon said. He, with two certified nurses who had answered his call by his side, began performing CPR on the girl.

“I breathed one little breath into her, and she immediately exhaled,” he said.

The girl was taken to a hospital immediately, and by Monday was reported in good condition and talking. Mondragon visited the girl in the hospital later.

“I love her and she’s a part of my family now,” Mondragon said.

Mondragon’s impulse to help did not end with saving the girl, who had not been wearing a life vest when she was rescued. He is now on a mission to help prevent what happened to her from happening to other children by seeking donations from local businesses to supply life vests for the children of families who can’t afford the devices.

“If I was not in that right spot at the right time, it could have been a search and rescue mission,” he said. “The baby was not wearing a life vest. If she was wearing one, the whole situation could have been different.”
