Conservative media personality Charlie Hurt suggests 911 ignore calls for help for people who protest police
Charles Hurt boasts an extensive resume for conservative commentary at The Washington Times, Fox News, Breitbart, and as a Drudge Report editor. Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, he suggested that anyone who calls 911 for help should be ignored if they have issues with the police.
His complaint came as part of an argument about Facebook advertising policies when an ad from the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police was blocked. The ad promoted their Officer of the Year award, but their Facebook account wasn't set up for advertising and hadn't been approved ahead of their post.
Facebook took action after the 2016 election when so many international groups were running social and political ads and weren't in compliance with the Federal Elections Commission and all federal laws regarding independent spending from foreign countries in an American election. Anyone running ads on their platform now that are of a political nature or a social issue must be registered and approved by Facebook to do so.
"This ad content has been correctly disapproved for violation of Facebook Advertising Policies and Guidelines As per policy: Your ad may have been rejected because it mentions politicians or is about sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion, how people vote and may impact the outcome of an election or pending legislation," Facebook said as the reason for not running the ad.
"Our policy for running ads related to politics requires you to get authorized first by confirming your identity and creating a disclaimer that lists who is paying for the ads," the response from Facebook also said.
The reality is that Facebook wasn't censoring the police department, they would run the ad under any Facebook-approved ad account that has been authorized to run the ad. Or the police chiefs group could file to be approved by Facebook to run such ads. The process is a simple one that even this writer has been approved of. So, for example, if the police chiefs' group doesn't want to wait for approval and allowed my ad account the permission, I could run the ad under my own authorization.
This isn't censorship, but that's not the way Hurt saw it. He said that Facebook should never be allowed to call the police to report anything ever again as a result of the ad.

Trump aides know he must abandon 'broke' Rudy Giuliani —even if he could end up like Michael Cohen: report
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported Sunday that there is no way Rudy Giuliani is getting his legal bills paid after he went to bat for former President Donald Trump.Giuliani spread conspiracy theories, lied about Dominion Voting Systems, sparked an investigation into his mental stability with the New York and Washington, D.C. Bar Associations, and is now engrossed in a slew of lawsuits. While his efforts were for Trump, the disgraced former New York City mayor is now broke and desperate.
Haberman explained that Trump's aides don't think that they can pay his bills because it would look so bad for the former president. They also believe that Giuliani took actions that no sensable lawyer should have taken, even if their client wanted it. Still, Giuliani did everything Trump wanted, and now he's suffering the aftermath.
Trump made it clear back in Jan. 2021 that he had no intention of paying Giuliani because he was unsuccessful in the cases.
Two officials said that Trump was offended by Giuliani's demand for a reported $20,000 a day legal fee.
Trump brought in $82 million in cash in the first quarter of 2021 on non-stop campaigns that he would protest elections across the country. Not one dollar has gone to that cause. Instead, the money is going to pay for things in Trump's properties.
Meanwhile, Haberman says that Giuliani's friends are warning that he is "close to broke."
In an interview with Giuliani on Friday, New York News 4 reporter Melissa Russo said that it's clear "he knows he's in legal jeopardy."
One of Trump's greatest legal challenges is that if someone in his fold is in legal jeopardy and Trump doesn't swoop in to help, there's a greater likelihood that they might be willing to make deals with prosecutors to testify against the former president.
Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has explained multiple times that when he was hauled into court, Trump and the family made it clear that they would do anything to protect him. They told Cohen he was "family." In the end, he was abandoned by the family just as Giuliani.
See the comments from Haberman below:
Fox News host Laura Ingraham and Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) went after Gen. Mark Milley during a QuakeMedia show. While Ingraham has never served a day in uniform, Banks should know better as a Navy captain.
It isn't the first time either of the right-wing nutters have attacked the high-ranking general. While Gen. Milley has seven rows of medals and honors on his chest, it appears Banks earned the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, so good for him. Ingraham may have been given a participation trophy at some point in her life, but it isn't listed on her IMDB page.
Banks is being triggered by the idea that soldiers are being "taught" that racism is bad.
"I can't think of any general officer in American history that has done more to destroy the apolitical ethos of the military than General Milley," said Banks on the show.
Ironically, Banks attacked Milley for attacking a commander-in-chief while President Donald Trump was in office. But, Banks, as a member of the Navy and member of Congress, has been more than eager to do the same, and he's doing so while Biden is the commander. Milley at least waited until Trump was no longer in office to speak out.
Banks was blocked from being on the Jan. 6 select committee, in part because there is a concern that he was part of the event.
