Headlines of the Day: ICE Under Fire, Oil Prices Topping the Charts, and Walmart Drops "Impeach 45" T-Shirt from Website
Breaking down the top 3 headlines of today, Tuesday, July 3, 2018. The top three headlines Pulsar has chosen to go over are as follows:
Monday night a group associated with the "Abolish ICE" movement through a brick through the office window of Nebraska Republican Party's headquarters in Lincoln, NE. The same vandals then spray painted "Abolish ICE" on the sidewalk outside of the office. This all according to the The Daily Caller.
This is just one of multiple violent leftist protests against ICE. On Saturday, a man assaulted a United States Secret Service officer after an ICE protest in Lafayette Square in Washington D.C. Per NBC Washington, a man illegally parked his car along Pennsylvania Avenue, got out, moved a security barrier, and started screaming "Where is the president" to officers.
After the suspect started shouting at the officers, he then punched an officer in the jaw and in the eye. He was arrested for assaulting a federal law enforcement officer.
According to CBS Philly, an ICE protest turned violent with multiple arrests today. See the news report, per CBS Philly, here:
People need to stop acting on emotion and look at the facts and statistics of ICE. Research ICE, and look at all the good things they do for the United States. They put their lives on the line and go to work every day to protect American citizens. Why does the left hate Americans so much? The left needs to tone it down, or they'll start being arrested more, or even worse, get people killed.
2. Oil Tops $75 per Barrel for the First Time Since 2014
Oil topped out at $75 per barrel today, but has leveled out at around $74 after the closing bell today per CNBC. Today was the first day since 2014 where oil has reached $75 per barrel.
President Trump has been calling on OPEC to increase oil production to help combat the rising prices, and some have been calling for the president to open up some of the US oil reserves.
Russia, per The Wall Street Journal, Russia plans to boost production output by 200,000 barrels a day. OPEC in general plans to boost oil production as well. Looks like President Trump is herding the cattle when it comes to oil countries.
According to The Hill, Saudi Arabia is planning to boost oil output by 2 million barrels per day. Saudi Crown Prince bin Salman and President Trump have had a great relationship since 2017, and we need a good one with Saudi Arabia in terms of oil supply and other things.
Here is a breakdown of rising oil and rising gas prices per Fox Business:
3. Walmart Buckles to Pressure to Remove "Impeach 45" T-Shirts from Store Website
Per Fox News, Walmart has removed "Impeach 45" t-shirts from their store website. Walmart came under intense social media fire today when it was revealed that they were selling t-shirts that had "Impeach 45" on them.
With all the division and incivility around the country, along with the democrats pushing for impeachment and violent protests, this seemed like a good idea for Walmart to remove it. Also a great business move after #BoycottWalmart started trending on Twitter and quickly gained support.
This is America, and you should be able to sell whatever you want, legally that is, but you're not entitled to sell it anywhere you want. Especially in bad political times as now, a large company shouldn't be profiting or encouraging a movement of division.
