Two women face charges after a videotaped altercation with an off-duty San Jose police officer following a minor vehicle collision.

The video shows the officer, who is dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, slam one of the women against a parked car.

He yells at the passerby who recorded cell phone video of the altercation that he is a police officer, but he does not show his badge at any point during the minute-long recording of the September incident posted on Live Leak.

The woman’s sister comes to her aid, and both of them get into a car and drive away.

KPIX-TV confirmed the man is a San Jose police officer, although his name was not released.

A police spokeswoman said the woman crashed into the rear of the officer’s vehicle, and he attempted to detain her until on-duty police arrived.

Sgt. Heather Randol told the TV station that the woman bit the officer during the altercation.

Misdemeanor warrants have been issued for the woman and her sister for leaving the scene of an accident and use of force against a police officer, the spokeswoman said.

During a discussion on the war on the intelligence community being waged by the Donald Trump's White House, CNN host Victor Blackwell stated that sources speaking with the network stated that the intel official who briefed lawmakers for both parties on new efforts by Russia to meddle in U.S. elections could be on the way out.

Speaking with contributor Lynn Sweet, Blackwell asked about the so-called "purge" being conducted by the White House.

"It sends the signal once again that President Trump is not a respecter of the United States intelligence services with the bigger issue that a permanent director has not been in that office since last summer when Dan Coates was forced out," Sweet explained. "This is a key position, subject to Senate confirmation and Trump hasn't seen fit to have a permanent director for months now."

In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, historian David Rothkopf accused Donald Trump's latest national security director, Robert O'Brien, of undercutting the United States intelligence services and uses his comments about recent reports of new Russian election meddling to make the case that he is contradicting FBI Director Christopher Wray to please the president.

According to Rothkopf, "For just over a century, since America arrived as a major force on the global stage, we have feared that should our enemies defeat us, it would be on the battlefield or via a devastating nuclear onslaught. We never could have imagined that an enemy might take another approach altogether: infecting us with a presidential virus who this week gutted our national security leadership structures like a fish."

Published

To quote the bumper sticker: "What would Jesus do?"

Assuming that he existed and held the views imputed to him, Jesus Christ would not support Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's behavior, values, policies and their consequences are the opposite of what Jesus Christ represented. Trump has put migrants and refugees in cages and delighted in their suffering. He feels contempt for the poor, the sick, the vulnerable and the needy. He has lied at least 16,000 times. He is corrupt and wildly greedy.
