David Clarke, a goalkeeper, started his career at Northampton Town. He moved to Glossop in the Second Division of the Football League. Over the next two years he played 67 games for Glossop. In 1904 he moved to Bristol Rovers before joining West Ham United. He was signed as understudy to George Kitchen. His debut was against Tottenham Hotspur in December 1906. Despite the 4-2 victory, Clarke did not get another opportunity until Kitchen was injured in February 1908. This gave him an extended run of 15 games for the first-team. The following season he played in only one game and at the end of that year he moved to Bradford Park Avenue. He also played for Southend United before retiring from the game.

David Clarke, former Milwaukee County sheriff, banned from Fox News: Report

David A. Clarke, the controversial former sheriff for Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, has reportedly been banned from appearing on Fox News.

Previously a regular fixture on the cable network, the conservative commentator and former lawman has not appeared on Fox News in more than a year, The Daily Beast reported Tuesday.

Mr. Clarke last appeared on Fox News during an episode of the opinion program hosted by Sean Hannity that aired on Feb. 14, 2018, and his most recent appearance on the network’s sister station, the Fox Business Network, occurred two days later, the report said.

Two sources familiar with the situation said Mr. Clark has been effectively “banned” by Fox News, the report said.

“His rhetoric became crazier and crazier and most shows refused to use him,” an unnamed source told the outlet.

Neither Mr. Clarke nor Fox News provided comment, the report said.

An assistant for Mr. Clarke acknowledged in an email statement that the former lawmaker made frequent, uncompensated appearances on Fox News through 2017 and that he approached the network seeking a paid contributor role late that year.

“It may have had something to do with the very liberal Rupert Murdoch boy taking over after Roger Ailes and Bill Shine, who was in charge of programming, were let go. Ailes and Bill Shine liked the Sheriff,” the assistant said.

Mr. Clarke, 62, served as sheriff of Milwaukee County from 2002 through 2017. He was a vocal supporter of President Trump’s election campaign in 2016, and the following year he became a spokesman and senior adviser for America First Action, a pro-Trump super PAC.

He parted ways with America First Action last month, The Daily Beast reported. The ban blocking him from appearing on Fox News complicated his job serving as the super PAC’s public face, the report said.

America First Action did not immediately return a message seeking comment.


David A. Clark Jr. (1956- )

David Alexander Clarke Jr. or Sheriff Clarke is the sixty-fourth sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. While originally appointed by Wisconsin Governor Scott McCallum in 2002 to fill a vacancy, Clarke has been re-elected four times (2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014). Clarke is one of a handful of African American sheriffs in large counties across the United States.

Sheriff Clarke has stirred up controversy and admiration for his tough stance on crime and his strong criticism of the Black Lives Matter political protest movement. While most of his supporters nationwide are Republican, Sheriff Clarke is a registered Democrat and has been elected by an overwhelmingly Democratic and white constituency. This, however, was offset in 2016 by his high-profile support for presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and his role as a speaker at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Clarke was one of five children. His father, David Clarke Sr., was a United States military veteran. Upon graduating high school, Clarke went into the field of law enforcement, joining the Milwaukee Police Department in 1978. Clarke served many different roles within the department, spending time as a patrol officer before being promoted to the position of homicide detective. In 1993 Clarke became a detective lieutenant, and in 1999 he was promoted to captain. While serving in the MPD, Clarke went back to school, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Management of Criminal Justice from Concordia University Wisconsin, located in Milwaukee (1999).

As sheriff of Milwaukee County, Clarke became a controversial figure. Clashes with local government officials over budget cuts, his vocal support for gun ownership, and his proselytization of the Christian faith failed to push away Democratic or Republican voters, however, as the sheriff now serves his fourth term in office. Clarke’s right-leaning views on race, especially pertaining to the black community, have made him somewhat of a celebrity among social conservatives. He has been very critical about the behavior and culture of inner city African Americans suggesting that their own actions help to perpetuate the poverty and alienation they often criticize. More recently, Clarke has taken on the Black Lives Matter movement, suggesting that it is generating increasing tensions between African American communities and police departments while ignoring rampant crime in those communities. Clarke has been honored with numerous awards from law enforcement organizations, Second Amendment advocacy groups, and conservative causes.

Sheriff Clarke and his wife, Julie Clarke, reside in Milwaukee. Clarke serves on the board of the greater Milwaukee Boys and Girls Club and is a member of various sheriffs’ organizations. According to his campaign website, he has a pet dog and a pet horse. His favorite musician is country singer George Strait, and his favorite television show is South Park.


Bice: Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke dumped by Fox News

David A. Clarke Jr. is no longer Fox News' favorite sheriff.

Once a regular talking head on several Fox News programs, the former Milwaukee County sheriff has now been dumped by the right-wing network, according to The Daily Beast.

"The one-time Fox News regular, who was previously considered for different senior posts in the Trump administration, was effectively 'banned' last year by the network, according to two sources familiar with the situation," the news website said Monday.

Clarke's last appearance on the network was more than a year ago. Since then, the Stetson-wearing provocateur has tweeted criticism of Fox News over a variety of issues, including its support of CNN's lawsuit against the Trump administration for stripping reporter Jim Acosta of his White House access.

At least ONE conservative news source @OANN has some balls. FOX News backed Acosta and crawled into bed with CNN in their lawsuit against @realDonaldTrump. Wow. https://t.co/okn5RCMNQn

&mdash David A. Clarke, Jr. (@SheriffClarke) November 16, 2018

The news story does not explain why Clarke has been exiled. The former sheriff came under heavy criticism in his final term for spending so much time promoting Trump on host Sean Hannity's show and so little in Milwaukee.

An unnamed Clarke "assistant" told The Daily Beast in a lengthy email that he was dropped after he asked to become a paid contributor to the network.

In Clarke's final term, at least four people, including a newborn, died at the Milwaukee County Jail under his watch.

The county has agreed to pay nearly $7 million to the family of one of those who died. Three workers at the jail have been charged criminally in connection with that inmate's death.

The Daily Beast also reported that Clarke, who stepped down as sheriff in August 2017, is also no longer working for America First Action, a pro-President Trump super PAC.

Federal Election Commission records show America First Action last paid Clarke's consulting firm, DAC Enterprises, on July 23, 2018. Clarke's former business partner Hedieh Mirahmadi dissolved DAC Enterprises as a limited liability company in November, according to Maryland corporate records.

Since September 2017, America First Action paid Clarke's firm nearly $92,000, say FEC records.

Not that the longtime sheriff will be hurting for cash.

Records show Clarke, 62, is getting pension payments of more than $100,000 a year after walking away from his county job midway through his final term. Clarke, a conservative often critical of government agencies and workers, receives separate checks from Milwaukee County and the city.

On top of that, he made more than $100,000 in speaking fees, gifts, lodging, airfare and other travel-related expenses during each of his final two years in office while traveling the conservative lecture circuit.

In August, Clarke attacked Mirahmadi on Twitter, saying he had been "duped" by her and accusing her of ties with Muslim extremists. Mirahmadi, president of the World Organization for Resource Development and Education, called Clarke's accusations "laughable."

Around the same time, the former sheriff withdrew his divorce filing against his wife, Julie. The two have since reconciled.


Bice: Former Sheriff David Clarke files for divorce in Milwaukee County

David A. Clarke Jr., the former Milwaukee County sheriff, is getting a divorce.

Clarke, 61, filed for divorce from his wife Julie in Milwaukee County Circuit Court earlier this week.

The two have been married since 1996 and live on the city's northwest side. They met during a double-homicide trial in which Clarke was the lead detective and she was a court clerk. She later became a real estate agent.

Neither the ex-sheriff nor his attorney, Daniel Exner, responded to messages on Thursday.

Clarke abruptly resigned as sheriff in August after nearly 16 years to take a job with the pro-Donald Trump super PAC America First Action as a spokesman and senior adviser.

He also created a new company called DAC Enterprises, based in Maryland, and is working for two conservative think tanks, the Capital Research Center and America First Action Policy.

This week, Clarke has been in the news for his conspiracy theory that the children who survived the brutal Parkland, Fla., school shooting last week are actually operatives of liberal billionaire George Soros.

The well ORGANIZED effort by Florida school students demanding gun control has GEORGE SOROS’ FINGERPRINTS all over it. It is similar to how he hijacked and exploited black people’s emotion regarding police use of force incidents into the COP HATING Black Lives Matter movement. pic.twitter.com/XDZ3bcwF6F

This weekend Clarke is speaking at CPAC, the annual gathering of conservative activists and Republican leaders in National Harbor, Md.

Look Inside

It would have been such fun to ride a little train from Rye to Camber Sands but now we must imagine the children and their parents with picnics and pop and the golfers for the Golf Links Halt. The rails can still be seen in places on the walk to Camber.

And a walk to a Castle marooned on the Levels and another town, Winchelsea aloof on its hill built to a pattern, safe behind its medieval gates.

And who can resist the climb up Toot Rock to the Lookout Post and imagine being a lookout in the dark days of war, searching the horizon for enemy ships. At low tide the beach reveals a wreck and a submerged ancient forest, branches, trunks, knots and roots soft with sea water.

And finally, a little walk along the peaceful and serene River Tillingham before a short climb up to a village mentioned in the Domesday Book 1086.
