Sunday Links

Some things going on out there:

From CNN, New Jersey Governor and presidential candidate Chris Christie (R) promises that as president, he will "track undocumented immigrants like FedEx packages".  This begs several questions.  In order to start such tracking, don't we have to first find them, which according to some people, can't be done for all 11 million of them?  And if we can find them, wouldn't this enable us to deport them?

From Breitbart Texas, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman addresses the #BlackLivesMatter "rhetoric".

From Reuters, Sheriff Hickman states that Deputy Darren Goforth was "killed because of [his] uniform".

From Independent Journal Review, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke accuses President Obama of starting a "war on police".

From the Chicago Sun-Times, General Mills announces its goals for cutting greenhouse gases.

From Arkansas Online, the University of Texas has removed its statue of Jefferson Davis from its place near the university's clock tower.

From The Sun, a British MI6 spy who was found dead five year ago had hacked into data on former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

From The Weather Channel, in a historical rarity, there are three Pacific hurricanes now in category 4.  (via End Time Headlines)

From US of Arn, Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) faults Senator Dick Durban (D-IL) for supporting the Iran nuke deal.

From WQAD, a small plane crashes near Kewanee, Illinois.

From Middle East Online, for the first time ever, woman in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to vote in local elections.

From the Chicago Tribune, Wisconsin Governor and presidential candidate Scott Walker (R) thinks that putting a wall on the U.S.-Canada border "merits further review".

From Fox News, some Appalachian Trail hikers have been "behaving badly".  (Having hiked all of the Maryland part of the trail, and a few miles into both Pennsylvania and West Virginia, I naturally find this news rather disconcerting.)

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, hundreds mourn for a 9-year-old girl killed in Ferguson, Mo.  (via ABC News)

And from the New York Post, a resident of the Hamptons, a very rich and very leftwing area of Long Island, has had to take extraordinary measures to protect his "Hillary For Prison" signs.
