The officers called for backup and then approached the suspects, but one immediately opened fire on the officers, taking them by surprise.

“What I can tell you is it appears our officers were unable to respond,” Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith told the media. “They were taken completely by surprise.”

“This is one of the roughest hours of your career,” Smith added. “There’s not a chief, not an officer that ever wants to have to deal with this. This is a very difficult thing for the family, very difficult for the department.”

The officer killed at the scene was identified as Sgt. Wytasha Carter, 44, of Birmingham, a 14-year veteran who leaves a wife and children behind. The last Birmingham officer killed in the line of duty fell in 2004.

Already, six police officers have lost their lives even as the new year is only 13 days old.

Oy vey!

Michelle Obama and other Americans who will vote for Joe Biden in November seem to forget the damage Barack’s administration caused for nearly a full decade. If they weren’t race-baiting or pandering, the members of the team really didn’t know what to do with themselves. The nation is a better place now that the Obamas are out of the spotlight. But that’s not where they want to be. From The Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama claimed that she has been suffering from “low-grade depression” recently, and pinpointed the Trump administration’s response to the nation’s racial problems as a cause. During an interview on her new podcast with Washington Post columnist Michele Norris, Obama said that, like many Americans, the coronavirus pandemic and the turmoil roiling the nation since George Floyd’s death have led her to some low points. CONTINUED: “There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low,” Obama said. “You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.” Claiming she has been experiencing sleep disturbances, Obama continued, “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1290996047104409601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1290996047104409601%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-claims-he-didnt-mean-to-make-racist-comments-about-blacks-despite-doubling-down-fails-to-apologize

He is everywhere – even inside a random Walmart in North Versailles, Pennsylvania. The clip you’ll see below went viral for all the right reasons. You can take the people out of the church, but you can’t take the church out of the people. From Post Millennial: A video of a worship service happening inside a Walmart, reportedly in North Versailles, Pennsylvania, has the internet chirping. The churchgoers took to Walmart to come together in worship, as churches have been closed, but Walmarts are open. WATCH: https://twitter.com/LifeNewsHQ/status/1291411407947407363?s=20 The left has never been a friend of Jesus. How some liberals can consider themselves Christians, while supporting the atrocity that is abortion, makes little to no sense whatsoever. On Monday, Bernie Sanders-supporting radical Shaun King tweeted something he should feel pretty silly about. But he probably doesn’t. From Daily Wire: Shaun King, the controversial Black Lives Matter activist known for pushing false claims, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275106946916499456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275106946916499456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p He then followed it up with this gem… https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275113067555303424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275113067555303424&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p
