One American among those killed in Spain terror attack: State Department

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 15:33

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday that at least one American died in Thursday’s terror attacks in Spain.

“We have now received word and confirmed the death of one American citizen in the terrorist attacks in Spain,” Tillerson said in a statement.

America’s top diplomat said that U.S. officials are still confirming the other reported injuries and deaths after a van plowed through a crowd of people in a popular tourist area in Barcelona. The attack came just one day after a house explosion in Alcanar, Spain, killed one person, CNN reported.

Hours after the van attack on Thursday, two Spanish police officers were injured after being run over at a security checkpoint just outside the city. Then, early Friday, five individuals drove through a crowd of people in the Cambrils, Spain, about 70 miles southwest of Barcelona. Police engaged in a shootout with the individuals, and all five were shot dead.

At least 14 people died in the attacks in Barcelona. More than a hundred others were injured, according to CNN.

The Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks. Spanish officials believe the incidents were connected.

At least four people have been arrested in possible connection to the attacks. The driver of the van fled on foot.

Tillerson, in his remarks on Friday, did not immediately reveal the identity of the American, or where the individual lived.

KNTV-TV in San Francisco reported Friday that the American who died was 42-year-old Jared Tucker of Walnut Creek, California.

Tucker was reportedly visiting Spain with his wife, Heidi Nunes, for the couple’s one-year wedding anniversary.

“[O]bviously we express our deepest sympathies to the loved ones of this individual, and obviously others who have suffered loss of life, and we offer our thoughts and prayers to their families, as they’re going to be dealing with a very, very tough few days ahead of them,” Tillerson said.

— CBS News (@CBSNews) August 18, 2017

A spokesman for the State Department did not immediately respond to TheBlaze on Friday when asked about the identity of the American who died.

CNN reported Friday that people from at least 34 different countries were among those injured.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy called the Barcelona attack “jihadi terrorism.”

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday, calling what happened a “terror attack.”

The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!

The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities just sent Trump a rather interesting letter

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 15:08

All but one of the 17 private members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities on Friday sent President Donald Trump a letter of resignation after the president’s response to violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

According to the group’s resignation letter, Trump failed to condemn white supremacist groups in Charlottesville “quickly and unequivocally,” a decision the group cannot stand by.

“Elevating any group that threatens and discriminates on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, orientation, background, or identity is un-American,” the letter said. “We have fought slavery, segregation, and internment. We must learn from our rich and often painful history.”

The group, which comprised prominent Broadway, Hollywood and other arts figures, claims the arts and humanities are based on the idea of inclusion, which Trump has actively worked against. They cite a number of the Trump Administration’s policies that they disagree with, including banning transgenders in the military, pulling out of the Paris climate change Agreement and a budget that eliminates the arts and culture agencies.

Kal Penn, who is most known for his role in “Harold & Kumar,” tweeted out the resignation letter for all to see:

Dear @realDonaldTrump, attached is our letter of resignation from the President's Committee on the Arts & the Humanities @PCAH_gov pic.twitter.com/eQI2HBTgXs

— Kal Penn (@kalpenn) August 18, 2017

Producer Eric Ortner was the only member of the resigning committee who shared a comment on social media. Other members retweeted Penn’s original tweet with the letter.

Charles Barkley slams protests of ‘stupid’ Confederate statues: ‘I’ve always ignored them’

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 14:37

Always-outspoken basketball legend Charles Barkley didn’t hold back when asked about the hot issue of the moment: whether or not Confederate statues and monuments should be removed.

The Alabama native and NBA Hall of Famer told Rick Karle, sports director at WRBC-TV in Birmingham, that protesting the statues is “wasted energy.”

“I’m not gonna waste my time worrying about these Confederate statues,” Barkley said.

He then offered an alternate idea: “You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna keep doing great things,” Barkley continued in a clip posted Thursday. “I’m gonna keep trying to make a difference — No. 1, in the black community, ’cause I’m black — but I’m also gonna try to do good things in the world.”

For Barkley, the prospect of “screaming at a neo-Nazi who’s gonna hate me no matter what” is wasted energy just like the effort one expends “worrying about these statues that they’ve got all over the country.”

But Karle pushed back a bit: “So do you leave them up and ignore them?”

Barkley was incredulous: “I’ve always ignored them!” He then offered more of his life’s perspective.

“I’m 54 years old,” Barkley told Karle. “I’ve never thought about those statues a day in my life. I think if you ask most black people, to be honest, they ain’t thought a day in their life about those stupid statues.”

Barkley — who has taken the black community to task on more than one occasion, particularly with respect to black-on-black violence — said black Americans have farther-reaching goals to focus on.

“What we as black people need to do … we need to worry about getting our education,” he said. “We need to stop killing each other. We need to try to find a way to have more economic opportunity. Those things are important and significant.”

Florida pro sports teams to pay for Confederate statue removal

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 14:12

Professional sports franchises in Tampa, Florida, announced Thursday that they are joining together to provide the funds necessary to remove a Confederate statue from the city’s downtown area.

The Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL), Rays (MLB) and Buccaneers (NFL) said in a statement that they will work with the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce to remove the statue, which is currently in front of a courthouse. The statue is a monument to all Confederate soldiers.

The statement asserted that the Confederate monument is not reflective of Tampa values and that the franchises must stand for diversity and inclusion in the aftermath of the violent Charlottesville, Virginia, protests.

A joint statement from us, @raysbaseball, & @tbbuccaneers regarding the movement to remove the Confederate monument from downtown Tampa. pic.twitter.com/U87JQsYXO4

— Tampa Bay Lightning (@TBLightning) August 17, 2017

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Tony Dungy personally pledged $5,000 to the removal fund earlier Thursday. Last month, the county commissioners voted to approve the relocation of the statue to a local cemetery, as long as no public money was used in the effort, according to WTVT-TV in Tampa. This week, they placed a one-month deadline on the removal.

County Commissioner Les Miller viewed the deadline as a measure meant to derail the relocation of the statue. Miller was one of the primary advocates for removal of the statue from the courthouse. At the time, he didn’t believe the community would be able to raise the funds in time.

“By the motion that was made today and passed, the monument will stay where it is,” Miller told WTVT earlier this week before the recent pledges. “Hillsborough County, the progressive county we are, will let a Confederate monument stay while everyone else is taking theirs down. I will be highly surprised if we are able to raise those dollars in 30 days. I don’t think we will. I think that monument will stay.”

After the initial approval, private fundraising efforts produced about half of the $280,000 needed to remove the statue, but efforts had stalled in recent weeks. It appears the recent pledges will provide for the remaining needed funds.

Confederate monuments have been a source of conflict recently. The “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, was originally a protest of the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Statues in other cities around the country have been removed, sometimes by cities and in some instances by protesters.

Steve Bannon is out as White House chief strategist

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 13:53

President Donald Trump on Friday announced the removal of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, the New York Times reported.

Conflicting reports are coming in about whether Bannon resigned or Trump fired him.

Bannon reportedly gave his resignation on Aug. 7 and the announcement was supposed to be made sometime this week. The announcement was delayed after violent protests erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, the Times reported.

According to CNN, Bannon was fired.

According to the Drudge Report, Bannon may return to Breitbart, a right-wing news site, where he was previously an editor.

Breitbart did not immediately return TheBlaze’s request for comment.

UPDATE: 2:03p.m. EST

Fox News and CNN are now reporting Bannon was “removed” and “fired” from his position in the White House.

This is a developing story and will be updated as new information comes in.

‘Run ’em over!’: Radio host fired for Black Lives Matter comments

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 11:03

Portland, Oregon, sports radio station KXTG-FM fired host Dino Costa after comments he made in June advocating for drivers to run over Black Lives Matter protesters with their cars gained national attention, RadioInsight reported this week.

The radio station initially stood by Costa despite the controversial comments, but new backlash in light of the Charlottesville, Virginia, “Unite the Right” protests led the station to terminate the provocative radio personality. Eugene Weekly posted a transcript of the comments Monday.

“You know these protests where they shut down the road, they lie in the road? If I’m the cops, I wave the traffic on,” Costa said during a June 7 broadcast. “Listen, as soon as one or two of these sumbitches are run over you’ll see the entire, in unison, everybody be up off the street. When people are being killed by 18-wheel trucks coming by, pickups, cars. Run ’em over!”

Those comments took on a new resonance after Heather Heyer, a Charlottesville counterprotester, died after a white nationalist protester allegedly drove his vehicle into a crowd Saturday.

As late as Monday, a statement from the station said Costa had been disciplined with “aggressive actions” at the time of the original comments, but he had not been fired. Costa wasn’t fired until Wednesday, after the displeasure of listeners, as well as the University of Oregon and the MLS Portland Timbers franchise, grew.

KXTG has broadcast agreements with the Timbers and University of Oregon football. The agreements were put in jeopardy once Costa’s June comments gained more widespread attention. Both organizations strongly condemned Costa and the sentiments he expressed.

Costa has had a history of controversial or offensive takes on radio, and this wasn’t the first time his opinions have cost him a job. He was fired from a St. Louis radio station earlier this year for his comments and behavior, including saying women don’t have a place in sports radio.
