The Continued and Brazen Lies of Black Lives Matter

waving flagPosted on August 24, 2015Rob Knowles

1014182_187274628110457_946782098_nBlack Lives Matter is a cultural infection. There’s really no other way to put it. This collective of organizations has latched onto ludicrous claims, blown them up, and perpetuated them. Hands up, don’t shoot. That four word phrase has been proven false, yet it continues to be used fervently by BLM protestors. Why? Because it sustains the movement. They don’t care if it’s a lie, they need an anthem.

I was perusing, because I like to laugh, and I came across two things that were so ridiculous, I had to write about them. Ok, I actually came across more than two things worthy of examination, but I’m not writing a dissertation.

First, on the “Demands” page, they once again push the idea of “hands up, don’t shoot.”

“We will seek justice for Brown’s family by petitioning for the immediate arrest of Officer Darren Wilson and the dismissal of county prosecutor Robert McCullough. Groups that are part of the local Hands Up Don’t Shoot Coalition have already called for Wilson’s swift arrest, and some BLM riders also canvassed McCullough’s neighborhood as a way of raising the public’s awareness of the case.”core belief

Despite the evidence, including multiple autopsies, dozens of eye-witness testimonies, and forensic evidence showing that Michael Brown was not surrendering, and that he did not have his hands up, “hands up, don’t shoot” continues to be propagated.

The Washington Post reported in October 2014:

“Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which casts Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life.”

In another WaPo report from October 2014:

“…one of the officer’s shots hit Brown’s forearm and traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm, which means Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson, as some witnesses have said.”

blacklivesmatterDespite a grand jury choosing not to indict Darren Wilson because of insufficient evidence, and the Eric Holder Justice Department dropping its own investigation due to a lack of evidence that Officer Darren Wilson did anything wrong, “hands up, don’t shoot” is still chanted aggressively by the race-baiting liars at BLM.

In the face of all of this, proudly repeats the “hands up, don’t shoot,” “arrest Darren Wilson” mantra. At this point, it’s just mob justice. We hate Darren Wilson because he’s white, and Michael Brown was black. Let’s put him in jail.

Christ himself could descend from the heavens and tell BLM protesters that Darren Wilson was not guilty of any wrongdoing, and the next day, BLM activists would appear on CNN and call Jesus a racist.

Second, on the Black Lives Matter website, they prominently feature a widely debunked statistic:

“Every 28 hours, a black man, woman, or child is murdered by police or vigilante law enforcement.”

black lives matter graphicblack-lives-matter-lolThis alleged statistic was debunked by PolitiFact. Yes, even PolitiFact, the extremely left-leaning “fact-checking” website, could not help but rate this claim false:

“[The stat comes from] a 2013 report by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement called ‘Every 28 Hours,’ which examined killings of African-Americans in 2012 by law enforcement, security guards and ‘vigilantes’ who claimed self-defense… The report is not an academic, unbiased representation of these deaths. It was put together by one volunteer researcher and details 313 deaths based on news clips and police reports…

In nine cases, police said they shot at suspects because they were charging at them from behind the wheel of a vehicle…Another case to make the list is Rudy Eugene, the Miami man who attacked a homeless man and gnawed his face before police shot him to death…

The report, which is not an academic work, reaches its conclusion by including deaths that were not at the hands of police, deaths of blacks who were armed, car accidents, and deaths of blacks who were in aggressive or hostile situations…we rate the claim ‘False.’”Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

black-lives-matter-lgbt-1024x532The statistic BLM appears to be referencing is absolutely false. Yet, BLM continues to blather on that black people are killed every 28 hours by police or “vigilantes” (whatever that means). Why? Because people don’t look into stuff like that—they just assume they’re being told the truth. So BLM gets away with telling an obvious lie.

Also, let’s examine the word “murdered.” Google defines “murder” as “the unlawful, premeditated killing of one human being by another.” In the case of BLM, the assumption is being made that every black person killed by a police officer is being “murdered.” That’s complete conjecture. They cannot know the machinations of every cop’s mind, so they cannotassume that every time a cop shoots and kills a black person, it was murder. But they do, because His Life Mattersonce again, no one cares enough to call them out on their blatant lies.

Well here I am. Black Lives Matter, you lie. You lie to advance your agenda, which serves only to undermine it. If your cause were true, and your aims righteous, it wouldn’t be necessary for you to continuously and brazenly lie. Given that, I can only conclude that you’re cause isn’t righteous. I have also concluded that you’re an infectious disease crippling our society.

I will grant you one thing, however. You do make me laugh, and that’s good for something.

Peaceful rallies in Ferguson give way to violence, gunfire/ and / Listen to the Chant Ferguson Protesters Were Caught on Video Shouting Shortly Before Gunfire Erupted

waving flagMon, Aug 10, 2015

URL of the original posting site:


FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — A man who opened fire on officers in Ferguson, Missouri, on the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death was critically wounded when the officers shot back, St. Louis County’s police chief said early Monday.

Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference that officers had been tracking the man, who they believed was armed, during a protest marking the death of Brown, the black, 18-year-old whose killing by a white Ferguson police officer.

The man approached the officers, who were in an unmarked police van, and opened fire, Belmar said. The officers returned fire from inside the vehicle and then pursued the man on foot when he ran.

The man again fired on the officers, the chief said, and all four officers fired back. He was struck and fell.

The man was taken to a hospital, where Belmar said he was in “critical, unstable” condition. Authorities didn’t immediately release the identities of anyone involved, but Tyrone Harris told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the injured man was his son, 18-year-old Tyrone Harris Jr.

The elder Harris told the newspaper shortly after 3 a.m. that his son had just gotten out of surgery.

None of the officers was seriously injured. All four have been put on standard administrative leave. They were not wearing body cameras, Belmar said.

The shooting happened shortly after what the chief called “an exchange of gunfire between two groups” rang out around 11:15 p.m. Sunday while protesters were gathered on West Florissant Avenue, a business zone that saw rioting and looting last year after Brown’s killing. The shots sent protesters and reporters running for cover.

The chief said an estimated six shooters unleashed a “remarkable” amount of gunfire over about 45 seconds.

Belmar waved off any notion that the people with the weapons were part of the protest. “They were criminals. They weren’t protesters,” he said.

The man who fired on officers had a semi-automatic 9MM gun that was stolen last year from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, according to the chief.

“There is a small group of people out there that are intent on making sure that peace doesn’t prevail,” he said. “There are a lot of emotions. I get it. But we can’t sustain this as we move forward.”

Early Monday, another reported shooting drew officers to an apartment building in the area. Two men told police they were targeted in a drive-by shooting near the memorial to Brown outside Canfield Apartments. A 17-year old was shot in the chest and shoulder while a 19-year-old was shot in the chest, but their injuries were not life-threatening, the St. Louis County Police said in a news release.

The anniversary of Brown’s killing, which cast greater scrutiny on how police interact with black communities, has sparked days of renewed protests, though until Sunday they had been peaceful and without any arrests.

Shortly before gunfire erupted during protests marking the anniversary of officer-involved fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, demonstrators were caught on video chanting that they were “ready for war.”

“Ready for what?! We’re ready for war!” the protesters chanted. (CLICK ON PICTURE TO VIEW VIDEO)


Leftist monster raceThe video was tweeted by St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Paul Hampel at 10:47 p.m. central time — and gunfire rang out just after 11 p.m., police said. Police shot and critically injured one suspect who allegedly opened fire on plainclothes detectives.

Separately, police said a 17-year-old male has been charged with unlawful use of a weapon and one count of resisting arrest after he fired shots near the protesters late Sunday. He is being held on $100,000 bond.

The anniversary of Brown’s killing, which cast greater scrutiny on how police interact with black communities, has sparked days of renewed protests, though until Sunday they had been peaceful and without any arrests.

Before the gunfire, protesters were blocking traffic and confronting police. One person threw a glass bottle at officers but missed.

For the first time in three consecutive nights of demonstrations, some officers were dressed in riot gear, including bullet-proof vests and helmets with shields. Police at one point early Monday shot smoke to disperse the crowd that lingered on West Florissant, Belmar said.

One officer was treated for cuts after a rock was thrown at his face, and two officers were pepper-sprayed by protesters, county police spokesman Officer Shawn McGuire said in an email. Five people were arrested, according to records McGuire released.

The police ‘instant replay’

waving flagHoppy's Commentary Hoppy’s Commentary | June 11, 2015

URL Of the Original Posting Site:

Instant replay has become invaluable in sports. It greatly improves the ability of game officials to get the call right. The inconvenience of the delay is offset by the advantages of applying the rules accurately and fairly. Instant replay also benefits from a controlled environment of perfect camera angles, definitive rules and expert reviewers.

The latest application of instant replay and, as a result, instant analysis, is police work. The country watched the phone-shot video multiple times of the police responding to teenagers fighting at a pool party in McKinney, Texas. Attention focused on Officer Eric Casebolt, who shoved a 14-year-old girl to the ground and pulled his gun. Police Chief Greg Conley said Casebolt’s actions were “indefensible” and that the officer had resigned.

We’ll agree with the chief on this and defer to his judgment. However it’s worth noting what did not happen at the chaotic scene; the officer didn’t shoot anyone or even fire his weapon and no one was injured. There are suggestions of racism—the officer is white and the teenage victim is black—but there is conflicting evidence as to what role, if any, race played in the police actions.

But the larger question is this: Why is this a national story worthy of several days of headline coverage? There are a couple of reasons:

  • First, there is compelling video. The fact that people are watching drives the agenda in a competitive environment.
  • Second, it fits the current storyline that “the police” are out of control.
  • Third, the race card can be played easily.Picture2

We have a real-life instant replay where news consumers are likely to make their own judgments about the decisions made by the police and others seen in the video.

WVLY’s Howard Monroe told me on “Talkline” Wednesday he believes this is a good thing because it exposed the actions of an overzealous officer and serves as a warning to other police of what not to do.  But Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt offered on the same program that subjecting more behavior to such intense national scrutiny will have unintended consequences. “Here’s your dystopian fantasy for the future; it’s all on camera. Everything is recorded and you better do everything perfectly because if you do it wrong, you won’t get a chance to even things out.” And that, Stirewalt suggests, will lead to “cultural paralysis” nobody will do anything. That may be hyperbolic, but there is already evidence the intense scrutiny of police actions is leading to police inaction.Picture4

CNN interviewed two Baltimore police who spoke anonymously about police simply reacting to events instead of being pro-active because they’re afraid of making a mistake. “Even if you have a reasonable suspicion, nine out of 10 times that officer is going to keep on driving,” one officer said.

Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Heather MacDonald wrote in the Wall Street Journal recently about the “Ferguson effect.” Violent crime is rising rapidly in major cities across the country as police disengage and the criminal element feels more empowered.

In sports, the instant replay resets the game back within the parameter of the rules. In police work the instant play can also be beneficial when it provides an accurate account of a serious event. However, if the McKinney, Texas, video is an example of where news coverage of the police is headed, where every action caught on video is subject to nationwide scrutiny, then the law enforcement game is going to change completely.Civil Race Both freedom combo 2

Cleveland Braces For Verdict In 2012 Police Shooting

I have never published anything from, or associated with, NPR. This report has importance because of the New WhatDidYouSay Logopresent racial unrest, and racial hatred, stirred up by the Sharpton/Jackson/Obama mob. While this is a copy of a transcript from one of their radio broadcasts, you can hear the Leftist application of propaganda. However, it is an important news report, because if things do erupt, like anticipated, you will have advance warning.

I find this report a little obvious because of the “meeting” they are reporting, and the City Councilman quoted. I’m not sure I am buying that they really want to avoid a riot, or giving advance promotion of one. You decide.

As the verdict nears in the racially charged case, city officials hope to avoid violence. They’ve reached out to civic and religious groups for constructive dialogue to help ward off potential unrest.


People in Cleveland, Ohio, are waiting for a verdict in a police shooting trial and waiting to see what follows. Incidents in Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore led to violence. Protests after a shooting in Madison, Wis., were peaceful. Cleveland could go either way or its own distinctive way. Here’s the flashpoint. Officer Michael Brelo is on trial for voluntary manslaughter. He is accused in the shooting deaths of two black suspects, both unarmed, who were sitting in a car boxed in by the police. Here’s Brian Bull of member station WCPN.


I’m standing here outside of the Glenville Recreation Center on the east side of Cleveland. Inside, roughly two dozen people are gathered – law enforcement, local politicians, clergy and activists to discuss how they can best quell any violence that could happen in the wake of the Brelo verdict.


We’re getting ahead of the violence.


Hank Davis is one of 75 citizen volunteer marshals whose job will be to walk the streets after the verdict, mediate any conflicts and point out trouble to police. The goal is to mirror Madison protesters rather than Baltimore’s after the verdict. Part of this effort will be to identify agitators who officials fear might try to spark riots.


Anyone that’s looking to come and confuse our kids, our youth, and mislead the people and bring chaos and mayhem, I would suggest that you find another city or somewhere else to do it because it won’t be tolerated in Cleveland.


Cleveland officials have designated nearly five dozen churches across the city as safe places after the verdict is announced. Pastor Andrew Clark of the Federation of Network Ministries says anyone upset over the outcome can come in for counseling and a shoulder to lean on. Clark says he’s had good talks with the Cleveland police over preparations.


We have been assured that the police officers will not be in riot gear, that they are not going to stop any demonstration or protest.


That contrasts for Ferguson’s police response which was highly criticized for being militarized following the Michael Brown shooting. Cleveland protesters did shut down traffic around Public Square last fall after a rookie officer fatally shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who had only a gun that shot plastic pellets in his hand.


UNIDENTIFIED MAN: If we don’t get it…


UNIDENTIFIED MAN: If you don’t get it…



But the protest was more disruption than destruction. The city has also set up a Twitter hashtag #onecle to promote a united city. Cleveland leaders also held a community safety meeting outlining their teamwork with civic groups to promote calm among residents. Cleveland’s police spokesman, Ali Pillow, says they’re trying to stay ahead of the protests.


I wouldn’t dare compare or critique anything that the Ferguson Police Department did. But in terms of the Cleveland Department, this is the proactive approach that the city and the police department has taken.


And city councilman Kevin Conwell says he plans to ride around the city after the verdict.


I plan to ride the neighborhood for three days after the verdict if he’s acquitted. I have to ride. I have to show leadership. And I’ll be out there riding all the time, seeing what’s going on, riding the streets.


With so many people from the Cleveland community working to offset any violence, city leaders are hoping that residents respond to appeals from neighbors and activists urging peaceful protest. For NPR News, I’m Brian Bull in Cleveland.

Ferguson: A Murderous Mob Incited by Holder and Obama

by Joel B. Pollak12 Mar 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site:

Two police officers in Ferguson, MO were shot at a protest early Thursday against alleged racism in the department and the city itself. It was not enough that the chief of police had just resigned. It was not enough that a local judge had quit. It was not enough that the Department of Justice had exonerated former officer Darren Wilson. No–the mob, told by President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that Ferguson was still guilty of racism, wanted “justice.”

The violence is the direct result of incitement by the federal government on the basis of trumped-up accusations, based on the faulty notion that a city that enforces traffic tickets vigorously as a means of raising revenue is inherently racist. (By that standard, my own ultra-progressive town of Santa Monica, California would be akin to a Ku Klux Klan headquarters.)

Racist emails discovered from a few employees implicated those individuals alone–but Obama and Holder wanted more. They, and serial inciter Al Sharpton, wanted the humiliation of the town, wanted the division of America, wanted it to be clear that white public officials could never represent a black population, wanted middle America to know that the federal government could nullify self-government at a whim.core belief

On the basis of the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie, they let black businesses in Ferguson be torched and sowed rage across the country that took the lives of two police officers in New York. Now the campaign of terror against police has come back to where the great lie started. Obama and Holder will not finish until they have destroyed Ferguson–destroyed it, in the oft-mocked parlance of the Vietnam era, in order to save it, razed it to rebuild it in the stylized image of Selma 1965, razed it in order to fit the delusions of an Attorney General who thinks we have made no progress since the era of Malcolm X and a President who once promised–incredibly!–to unite America.racismjacksonsharptonobamaracebaiterssettingamericaback

This protest has been updated to reflect the fact that while the protest began Wednesday evening, the shooting was reported Thursday morning.

Bassem Masri, Obama’s Face of Racial Justice

Posted by Michael BeckerDecember 22, 2014

URL of the Original Posting Site:

Barack Obama and Eric Holder are consulting with terrorists to reform our police departments and achieve racial justice. What could go wrong?

We’ll get to Bassem Masri and racial justice in just a minute.  First, some background.

As you certainly know by now, two NYC police officers were butchered in retribution for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.  The man who butchered them, shot from behind, was a newly minted Muslim from Maryland who is also, apparently, a member of the Black Guerrilla Family, a viscous black prison gang.  His name was Ismaaiyl Brinsley.

Here’s what Brinsley left on his Instagram.

Brinsley also used the derogatory term “pigs” to refer to police in social media posts he sent shortly before murdering the officers.

“I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours … let’s take 2 of theirs,” Brinsley posted on Instagram shortly before executing the two officers.

“This may be my final post…I’m putting pigs in a blanket,” Brinsley wrote.

Moving right along to Bassem Masri.  Masri is a resident of Ferguson, MO and has been active in the demonstrations surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown.

Masri was selected by Eric Holder’s Department of Jusice to consult with them on police reform.  Yep, police reform.

Last month, Masri bragged on social media that the Department of Justice invited him to take part in a community meeting to provide input on how to enact police reform.

“DOJ has appointed a few of us2reform the police in the entire region that should resonate nationwide thats the director intentions,” Masri tweeted in November.more evidence

Just so there’s no doubt in your mind as to what kind of people Barack Obama and his administration are looking to in order to “reform” police departments, take a peek at the following video, shot in Ferguson.v01

Prior to the events in Ferguson, Masri’s activism focused on the Palestinian cause and support for the terrorist group Hamas.

Masri put that support on display Saturday, at one point wrapping his face in a keffiyeh, a scarf meant to show solidarity with Palestine.

“This how my boys wrap they face. The Palestinian resistance. Real mean. Y’all police – why don’t y’all go stand toe-to-toe with the Palestinian resistance?” more evidence

He’s a Hamas supporter.  Hamas is officially a terrorist organization.Muslims in the White House Administration

Video: Rush Limbaugh: ‘There is a Grievance Politics in this Country that is Tearing Our Country Apart’

December 8, 2014 By

Rush Limbaugh, the top voice in America for conservative talk radio, recently appeared on Fox News Sunday to addressrush2 the politics surrounding the recent deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York.
Right out of the gate, Limbaugh spoke candidly about the nature of the protests that have engulfed America and noted, “There is a grievance politics in this country that is tearing our country apart.”
Limbaugh noted that the “grievance politics” are constantly augmented and though President Obama could do much in the way of offering a unifying message, continues to use his pulpit for the further division of this country.
The interview is fascinating with many astute observations about the nature of racial politics in America and who is using and abusing this serious issue to further a political agenda.

Moments before Officer Darren Wilson took Michael Brown’s Life, He was Saving One

Researched and Written by Tim Brown

URL of the Original Posting Site:

In a story that isn’t getting national media coverage, it’s now being reveled that minutes before Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson that he was engaged in helping to save the life of a two-year-old child, who just may have been black.

According to Opposing Views:

The report goes on to describe how Wilson responded to a call at Ferguson’s Northwinds Apartment Complex for an “emergency involving a 2-year-old child who had trouble breathing.” While attending to the sick child and the mother, Wilson reportedly got a call about the convenience store incident, but instead of responding himself, he reportedly stood with the family until health care workers arrived at the scene. It was only after they arrived that he responded to the theft call and, eventually, ran into Brown in the middle of the street.

In the report, Whiteman claims that the sick baby was “most likely” black because of a past report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that talks about the demographic of people living at the apartment complex in question.

“However, the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Oct. 18, 2014 that the very same Northwinds Apartment complex as one of many federally designated Section 8 Housing projects that the Post-Dispatch described as an ‘amalgam of crime, mismanagement and African-American poverty,'” reported Whiteman. “Furthermore, the Post-Dispatch made note that of the slew of low income projects (to include Northwinds) in St. Louis County, the overwhelming number of residents are black. According to the newspaper, ’99 percent [are] African-American.’ The remaining 1 percent is divided between whites, Latinos, American Indians, Pacific Islanders, East Asians and those of mixed races.”

The reported concluded that while there was no concrete evidence the child was black, all the demographic evidence points to that assumption.

However, the larger issue is that Officer Wilson was not one that seemed to take life lightly, but rather showed compassion for his fellow man and the citizens he served in Ferguson.

The fact that he waited with the family and child till medical help arrived and didn’t just jump in his car and head out looking for the so-called “gentle giant” speaks volumes too. He definitely put the life of the child ahead of a convenience store robbery. In other words, acts like this fly in the face of the claims of the Brown family and others that Wilson was a cold-blooded murderer.

However, one wonders about the mindset of many of Wilson’s critics. After announcing on ABC’s Good Morning America that he and his wife are expecting a baby, several liberals tweeted out these kinds of comments:

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1386367046357-1’); }); Ferguson Cop Darren Wilson Is Expecting a Child, unknown if he’ll shoot the baby when he raises his arms for a hug. @absrdNEWS

Seriously, after reading some of these comments, hearing Louis Head calling on protesters to “burn this b*tch down,” hearing the stories of Michael Brown’s mother and her posse and various other supporters of the Brown family, who sounds more psychotic and more apt to needlessly take a life, Darren Wilson or them? My money is on those who have already engaged in verbal assaults and the destruction of private property. What about you?

School district distributes lesson plan that compares Ferguson protests with Boston Tea Party

By Howard Portnoy on December 4, 2014

URL of the Original Posting Site:

Ferguson protestI was under the impression that the Boston Tea Party was no longer taught in the nation’s schools because it is insulting to American Indians. Obviously I was mistaken:

After protesters in Ferguson, Missouri looted shops, burned police cars, and harassed reporters in the wake of a grand jury decision they disagreed with, the Madison Metropolitan School District in Madison, Wisconsin circulated a guide to teachers offering tips about how to talk about Ferguson with students.

Calling the Ferguson riots “a teachable moment for our students,” the Madison teacher’s guide encourages educators to use the resources and articles linked in the document, “to help frame the issues in Ferguson in a historical perspective.”

One of the resources linked in the document is a blog post by a Michigan teacher from August that compares the Ferguson riots and looting to the Boston Tea Party. Another resource linked was an article from The Atlantic titled “Reparations for Ferguson” that compared police officers to predators. [Emphasis added]

OK, let’s back up here and take a closer look at this comparison. The Boston Tea Party was a carefully planned and organized protest by the Sons of Liberty against a scheme by the British Crown to impose unfair taxes on the colonists. The Ferguson protests were a spontaneous, if predictable, mob reaction to a shooting death, egged on by “community organizers,” that resulted in the wholesale destruction of property in the predominantly black St. Louis suburb. About the only thing the two events have in common is that both can fairly be described as protests.Pro Race Baitersracismjacksonsharptonobamaracebaiterssettingamericaback

While we’re on the subject of education, this protester in New York City could certainly stand to do some work in remedial spelling:

As ISIS Attempts to Recruit Black Men in Ferguson, It Appears As if Obama’s Buddy Beyonce is Helping

December 1, 2014 By

URL of the Original Posting Site:

During the initial weeks following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, a chilling sign was seen behind CNN’s Jake Tapper as he reported from Ferguson. A man was holding a sign that read “ISIS here.” Since the announcement last week that the grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in that shooting, ISIS has ramped up their efforts to recruit black men out of Ferguson. Therefore, it is a bit shocking that Beyoncé, one of the biggest stars in the music industry, would film a video that could be construed as both propaganda for ISIS and for the violent rioting in Ferguson.

In a promo for her Superpower duet with Frank Ocean, Beyoncé sported a niqab, a Muslim headdress for women, along with an outfit not even fit for a club, that no Muslim woman could ever wear. Her short skirt is paired with a short mid-drift bearing top that also exposes the lower part of her breasts.

The singer, who appeared on this year’s Grammy’s with the word FEMINIST behind her as she performed a sexual act with a chair wearing a scantily clad outfit while her husband, Jay-Z watched, was criticized by both Muslims and feminists on Twitter.

Karesa Warner said on Twitter, “Dear Beyoncé: Do you think you’re going to get away with wearing a version of Islamic head-dress, niqab, while promoting your Demonic music?”

Dina said, “Quoting our holy Quran and dressing in a niqab isn’t a fashion statement you dumb beyonce.”

Feminists also chimed in chastising Beyoncé for her hypocrisy in wearing the niqab.

Dana Yager said, “Sorry, Beyonce. Probably not in the best interest for women’s rights to make the niqab fashionable. Just sayin’.”

In watching this video, given the volatile situation in Ferguson, including massive destruction of personal property, and the Muslim terrorist group ISIS actively recruiting blacks in Ferguson via social media, one has to wonder what exactly is Beyoncé trying to accomplish? com 02

WATCH the Ferguson rioting style video, which also appears to promote Islam, promoted by Beyoncé.

Feds Enable Arsonists, Target Oath Keepers Protecting Ferguson Businesses

Feds Enable Arsonists, Target Oath Keepers Protecting Ferguson Businesses
Feds tell police to stop “domestic terrorists” providing free security

Police in Ferguson, Missouri, have been pressured by the federal government to stop members of Oath Keepers from guarding local homes and businesses targeted by arsonists.

Oath Keepers, an organization consisting of former and current military, police and first responders, dispatched several members to Ferguson the day after the Grand Jury announcement to provide free security to those in need.

Almost immediately after receiving praise in a local paper for protecting vulnerable residents, Oath Keepers standing watch on top of a locally-owned bakery witnessed a three-man sniper team exiting a silver Suburban on the ground below.

The three men were then seen setting up sniper hides in a nearby building before aiming their rifles directly at the group. Across the street, on top of the fire hall, a seperate sniper team began setting up as well.

A Missouri Oath Keeper named Sam Andrews, who spoke briefly with Infowars, immediately called Unified Command to find out why snipers had taken up an aggressive position against them.

According to Andrews, local police, a large portion of which have been supportive of the Oath Keepers, were completely unaware of the feds movements.

Shortly after, a St. Louis County police officer appeared on scene and began telling Andrews that business owners wanted them off their roofs.

After calling the store owners, Andrews and his team quickly confirmed that no such request was ever made. That is when the officer admitted that his chief was being pressured by the feds to keep Oath Keepers from protecting buildings.

Further reports revealed that the feds had told police earlier that day that Oath Keepers were “domestic terrorists,” an unsurprising claim given the federal government’s baseless targeting of the group. com 01

The owner of a Chinese restaurant receiving free protection was reportedly confronted by federal agents also and told to kick the Oath Keepers out.

Failing to remove the businesses’ and homes’ much needed protection, other officers began telling Andrews that his group was in violation of state law. Police claimed the group needed to posses security licenses, despite the fact that the law only applies to paid security, not volunteers.

“We’re volunteers. We read the statute. We had three attorneys read the statute,” Andrews told Infowars.

Andrews began speaking with other volunteers not affiliated with the Oath Keepers, including a group of young Ferguson residents protecting a local gas station, and learned that none had been approached or told to obtain licenses by police.

Stewart Rhodes, founder and president of Oath Keepers, told Infowars that the American people are being presented with a false choice by those running the show in Ferguson. Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

“They want to create a false paradigm… They are presenting a false choice between lawlessness, looting, arson, assault, murder on the one side, unrestrained, or a hyper-militarized police state on the other,” Rhodes said. “They are failing to do the intelligent thing and protect businesses without trampling on rights.”

Rhodes’ remarks cause even more concern in light of comments made by Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, who accused President Obama of ordering a National Guard stand down as Ferguson businesses burned to the ground last week. group imperial obama

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles also stated that his request for National Guard help was turned down by Governor Jay Nixon, a Democrat ally of the President. Liberalism a mental disorder

Andrews and the other volunteers, who even spent Thanksgiving pouring water on rooftops in case arsonists and rioters returned, are now shifting tactics in order to continue protecting life, liberty and property in Ferguson.

Pro Race Baiters

Last week, as I was watched the Ferguson fiasco go down, I kept bouncing back and forth between CNN and MSLSD to see how the Left was pitching this massive destruction of personal and private property on behalf of the “innocent” and “gentle giant”, Michael Brown.

Both networks had black ministers on throughout the week that basically justified the riots. Yes, some pooh-poohed the extreme acts of violence, however several of them didn’t really crap on the “protestors”.

Chief amongst the “ministers” who didn’t seem to care what chaos was created was the Reverend Al Sharpton and his spirit-twin the Reverend Jesse Jackson.Liberalism a mental disorder

As I watched these “men of God” cheerlead this mess, I started thinking to myself, “Self … what Bible do they read? … ‘The Race-Baiters Grievance Edition?’ “; because no one who’s ever traipsed through an unadulterated New Testament would think that such mayhem, for such a flimsy — no … farcical — reason is remotely justifiable.  That is if, and that’s a big “if”, Jesus is the standard for a person’s behavior.

Indeed, if one read just a smidgen of Jesus’s teachings they would quickly deduce that if Christ were the blueprint for the believer, then the behavior of these looting morons is contemptible and worthy of a true minister’s rebuke and wide spread public condemnation.  But, eh … not so much for the likes of the Reverend Sharpton and Jackson, which left me thinking that they must revere something else other than the Jesus of The Gospels because the Christ of the Scripture wouldn’t back their race-baiting and destructive behavior or anyone that fans those hideous flames.

That said, please allow me to inject at this juncture that Jesus was not above kicking some butt and breaking stuff if need be.  Look, Jesus was no wussy.  For example, one of the first snapshots we have of Jesus in John’s account of his ministry was his turning water into wine and cleansing the temple, two things the teetotalers and the timid would not like being in the sacred text.

Check it out in John 2:13-17:

13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

And here’s Matthew’s account of Jesus’ opening up a can of whup ass: Matthew 21: 12 “And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 13 He said to them, ‘It is written, “My house shall be called a house of prayer,” but you make it a den of robbers.’ “

Let’s break it down, shall we?

First off, please take note of the offense that got Jesus in a bad mood: Religious hucksters had turned God’s house into a cash cow for religious goobers.  In other words, it was a clear-cut, irrefutable offense, with empirical evidence, that got Christ’s dander up.  Ponder that nugget before you burn down an innocent couple’s grocery store, por favor.

This lead, as stated, to Jesus’ going postal on the place.  But what I’d like to point out was how Jesus released his rage as an example to us schleps that follow his lead, if and when it comes to dusting up against some true injustice.  Are you ready? Well, alrighty then.

Herewith are the various particulars regarding how the Holy One rolled.

  1. Jesus made a whip, which screams to moi, that he was patient and methodical and it wasn’t belligerent, out of control, frenzied rage he sported.
  2. Jesus only vandalized the evil SOBs’ stuff that were desecrating God’s house.  Please note, he didn’t morph into a crazy vandal.
  3. Jesus didn’t steal their stuff after condemning their actions. Hello!
  4. Jesus had a clear biblical mandate that God’s house was to be a house of prayer and that zeal for its purity drove his legit wrath.
  5. Jesus, didn’t cleanse the temple incognito. He wasn’t anonymous.  He wore no weird mask, or a bandana over his face, or a hoodie and shades. People who do that are nutless wonders.  If you’re so bold and so in the right, then like Jesus, represent … stand up and be counted.
  6. Jesus didn’t make a living off grievance based temple-tossing.  He didn’t form a non-profit that went around making life miserable for everyone he thought sucked.  Also, he acted alone, without some massive posse and there are only two examples of him ever engaging in such acts.
  7. Jesus never said to his disciples lets “burn this bitch down”.  Please note, he also didn’t call them “mother—kers” as his wrath was bridled.

And that, my little children, is how Christ threw a holy fit.  Anything else is … well … uh … un-Christlike and must be repented of and condemned especially by “reverends” who lead the flock of God, of which I bet the majority of the Ferguson protestors go to church. So I’m a thinkin’ the aforementioned should apply.

Finally, for the slow amongst us who claim Christ as their captain please note in Jesus’s example of opening up a can of whup ass that …

  • There was no stealing.

  • There was no arson.

  • There was no stoking of a phony revolt based on lies. Empirical evidence drove Jesus’ cleansing of the temple.

  • There was no labeling of the folks as “Jewish-devils.”

  • There was no unnecessary destruction of property.

  • There was no inciting to riots.

  • He didn’t do it in defense of some teenaged criminal.

  • He didn’t threaten to rape and/or murder his enemies’ women and kids.

  • And he wasn’t impulsive in his anger and reduced to animalistic destruction.

Jesus was an example on how to deal with egregious wrongs without losing one’s holy head.

Now, here’s my challenge to my black brethren: I dare black ministers to read this in their churches.DO NOT JACKASS

Oh, and one more thing: the only religion that allows for the kind of destruction and chaos that we witnessed this past week in Ferguson and other places is Islam and not Christianity.   So you might ought to think about either converting to Islam or repenting for missing Christ’s example by a flippin’ mile.  Amen.

Ann Coulter Letter: Liberals willing to fight to the last drop of black blood

Liberals willing to fight to the last drop of black blood

The riot in Ferguson reminds me, I hate criminals, but I hate liberals more. They planned this riot. They stoked the fire, lied about the evidence and produced a made-to-order riot.

Every other riot I’ve ever heard of was touched off by some spontaneous event that exploded into mob violence long before any media trucks arrived. This time, the networks gave us a countdown to the riot, as if it were a Super Bowl kickoff. 

From the beginning, Officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown wasn’t reported like news. It was reported like a cause. The media are in a huff about the prosecutor being “biased” because his father was a cop, who was shot and killed by an African-American. What an assh@le!

Evidently, the sum-total of what every idiot on TV knows about the law is Judge Sol Wachtler’s 20-year-old joke that a prosecutor could “indict a ham sandwich.” We’re supposed to be outraged that this prosecutor didn’t indict the ham sandwich of Darren Wilson.

Liberals seem not to understand that they don’t have a divine right to ruin someone’s life and bankrupt him with a criminal trial, just so they’re satisfied. The reason most grand jury investigations result in an indictment is that most grand juries aren’t convened solely to patronize racial mobs. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was basically demanding an indictment of Wilson before Big Mike’s body was cold. It was only because of racial politics that this shooting wasn’t dismissed without a grand jury, at all.

Obama says anger is an “understandable reaction” to the grand jury’s finding. Why? And why — as almost everyone is saying — are we supposed to praise the “peaceful protests”?

There’s nothing to protest! A cop shot a thug who was trying to kill him. The grand jury documents make perfectly clear that Big Mike was entirely responsible for his own death. Can’t the peaceful protesters read?

The night of the riot, Obama said the law “often feels as if it is being applied in discriminatory fashion.” Maybe, but not in this case — except toward Officer Wilson. I know liberals were hoping they had finally found the great white whale of racism, but they’re just going to have to keep plugging away. They might want to come up with a more productive way to spend their time, inasmuch as they’re about 0:100 on white racism sightings.

Anyone following this case has seen the video of Big Mike robbing a store and roughing up an innocent Pakistani clerk about 10 minutes before being shot by Officer Wilson. They’ve seen him flashing Bloods gang signs in photos.

They know Brown’s mother was recently arrested for clubbing grandma with a pipe over T-shirt proceeds. They’ve seen the video of Brown’s ex-con stepfather shouting at a crowd of protesters after the grand jury’s decision: “Burn this bitch down!”

Liberals will say none of that is relevant in court, but apparently they don’t think actual evidence is relevant either. It’s certainly relevant in the court of public opinion that the alleged victims are a cartoonishly lower-class, periodically criminal black family.

TV hosts narrated the riot by saying it showed “the community” feels it’s not being listened to. Only liberals look at blacks looting and say, See what white Americans made them do?

That’s their proof of injustice — look at how blacks are reacting! (While I don’t approve of the looting part, I do approve of the whole throwing-bottles-at-CNN part.)

The looters aren’t the community!

The community doesn’t want black thugs robbing stores and sauntering down the middle of its streets. The community doesn’t want to be assaulted by Big Mike. The community didn’t want its stores burned down.

That community testified in support of Officer Darren Wilson. About a half-dozen black witnesses supported Officer Wilson’s version of what happened. One was a black woman, who saw the shooting from the Canfield Green apartments. Crying on the stand, she said, “I have a child and that could have been my son.”

And yet, she confirmed all crucial parts of Wilson’s account. She said “the child” (292-pound Big Mike) never had his hands up and the cop only fired when “the baby” was coming at him. “Why won’t that boy stop?” she asked her husband.

I always want to know more about the heroic black witnesses. They are put in a position no white person will ever be in and do the right thing by telling the truth — then go into hiding from “the community” being championed by goo-goo liberals.

White people don’t feel any obligation to defend some thug just because he’s white. Only blacks are expected to lie on behalf of criminals of their own race.

But real heroism doesn’t interest liberals. They only ooh-and-ahh over blacks with rap sheets. The only meaningful white racism anymore is the liberal infantilization of black people. 




Black Residents Armed With Assault Rifles Stand Guard Outside White-Owned Business During Ferguson Riots

Black Ferguson Residents Protect White Owned Store.png<img width=”665″ height=”385″ src=”×385.jpg” data-attID=”1638955″ class=”single-leader wp-post-image” alt=”Black Ferguson Residents Protect White Owned Store.png” />

A group of black Ferguson residents armed with high-powered rifles stood outside a white-owned business in the city during recent riots, protecting it from rioters that looted and burned other businesses.

After a grand jury returned no indictment against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown, protesters took to the streets and the demonstrations quickly turned into rioting. Several buildings were set ablaze, but a group of heavily armed black men stood outside a Conoco gas station.

One of the residents, a 6-foot-8 man named Derrick Johnson, held an AR-15 assault rifle as he stood in a pickup truck near that store’s entrance. Three other black Ferguson residents joined Johnson in front of the store, each of them armed with pistols.

In a city torn apart by racial tensions, the fact that black residents took up arms to defend a white-owned store made headlines.

The men said they felt indebted to the store’s owner, Doug Merello, who employed them over the course of several years. The men said Merello always treated them with respect.

“He’s a nice dude, he’s helped us a lot,” said a man identified himself as R.J. The 29-year-old R.J. said the group chased away several groups of teenagers who wanted to loot the store, but also nearly got into a brush with soldiers from the Missouri National Guard, who initially mistook them for looters.

The gas station’s owner said the men definitely saved his store.

“We would have been burned to the ground many times over if it weren’t for them,” said Merello, whose father first bought the store in 1984.

While the black Ferguson residents defended the white-owned store, dozens of other businesses were not as lucky. Officials said more than a dozen businesses received “significant” damage as groups of rioters threw bricks, broke windows, and set fires.



#FERGUSON PROTESTORS: Threaten to Rape and Kill Wives and Children of Police

lootBut it’s OK… they’re black and blacks can get away with saying such things because we’re living in Obamaland now.

Protesters in Ferguson have been threatening to rape the wives of front line police and kill their children during the latest clashes, the wife of one officer has claimed.

The unnamed woman said that her husband has been ‘screamed at’ as he faced off with the angry crowds amid heightened tensions in the suburb of St Louis, Missouri.

She told Fox 2 News that they threatened a home invasion in an apparent attempt to provoke the officers.

The wife claimed the protesters said: ‘We’re going to go to your house. ‘We`re going to rape your wives then we`re going to kill them and we`re going to kill your children’.com 01

The allegations comes after many police officers’ families in Ferguson, Missouri, were reported to be in hiding or running from town amid death and assault threats.

One police wife told KTVI that she’s received threats over the phone and she’s been paranoid for her and her young daughter’s safety ever since.

‘Did they follow me here?’ she told the station. ‘Did I do a good enough job after work today of taking different routes, on my way home?’

SHOCK REPORT: St. Louis Bomb Plot Fails Because of Maxed Out EBT Card

by 26 Nov 2014

URL of Original Posting Site:

Only days before a grand jury released its decision on whether there would be a trial for the August shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, the FBI arrested two men who were allegedly looking to buy supplies to make a pipe bomb. 

Sources say the men planned to kill St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch, and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, and also planned to bomb the famed Gateway Arch in downtown St. Louis. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the men bought what they believed to be a pipe bomb from undercover police but could not afford more bombs “until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.”

The two men were arrested on November 21 and accused of attempting to purchase explosives that they planned to use during the Ferguson protests. They were also brought up on gun charges.

But this week, we are learning a bit more about what these men were allegedly planning to do with the explosives.

Sources close to the ongoing investigation have revealed that the men, Brandon Orlando “Muhammad” Baldwin, age unreported, and Olajuwon Ali Davis, 22, were nabbed in an undercover gun sting. The pair were initially arrested after misrepresenting who the firearms were being purchased for, authorities say. Sources also say that the pair intended to kill the St. Louis prosecutor as well as Ferguson’s police chief and also wanted to place their pipe bombs on the upper deck of the St. Louis Gateway Arch. Both pleaded not guilty at their Tuesday hearing. The two also waived their rights to a bail hearing and are being held pending further proceedings.

Olajuwon Ali Davis was a recent speaker at a meeting of the New Black Panther Party held at the Greater St. Mark Family Church in Ferguson in October and has been identified as the Panthers’ “minister of law.”

Authorities would make no further on-the-record statements about the case.



Civil Disobedience in Ferguson Was Planned and Choreographed Beforehand, Not a Spontaneous Riot

Listen to it ButtonNovember 26, 2014 Windows Icon Windows Media

URL of Original Posting Site:


RUSH: I tried yesterday to make a point about this business in Ferguson, and I did not spend enough time actually thinking about how I wanted to say it in order to be the most clearly communicable and understood.  The artificiality of this, and I do mean artificiality.  These were not riots.  These were planned, staged, predicted, counted on incidents of civil disobedience.

This was not a riot.  This did not happen spontaneously. It did not happen because of something that happened unexpectedly that caused people to lose their mind.  They planned it.  It was a strategic plan, and the media fell right in line, predicting it, and counting down to it and heightening tensions.  And so when it happens, it was expected, and therefore it can’t be a riot. The fact that it was expected and still happened, what does it say about the civility of our culture?  What does it say about the overall civilization that we have?

Something about this has just not seemed right to me and I haven’t been able to put my finger on it.  But it’s the same way I felt in the days leading up to the Obama announcement on amnesty, the executive amnesty for the five million illegals.  Here we were told what was gonna happen and the media, in the pre-days and hours leading up to the event, heightened the tension, the anticipation.  We had a countdown to an event we all knew was coming, and that was the Constitution being violated.

When you get right down to it, that’s what the event was.  And it seemed, even though it happened and we knew it was gonna happen, it just seemed surreal.  Everything seemed to happen on a media schedule, on a media timetable.  Everything seemed to happen because of the media.

In other words, it was real, and what Obama did was real, there’s no question about that. But the same thing here in Ferguson.  We knew the grand jury was gonna have a report at some point and we knew that no matter what that grand jury report was, there was gonna be a riot.  So we all sat down and we expected and waited for it. And the only question was how big was it gonna be, as though now it’s just common.  We sit by, almost idly, and accept the idea that we’re going to have civil unrest, civil disobedience, call it a riot if you want, and that it is justified and we’d better try to understand it. It’s now part of the American fabric, instead of being something spontaneous that is an actual reaction to something.

This riot was planned. It was gonna happen no matter what.  How bad it was gonna be was the only thing unknown.  The actions of the authorities to stop it or not stop it, that was an unknown, but we knew it was gonna happen.  Rodney King was not like this, for example.  The Watts riots in the sixties were not like this. Trayvon Martin was not like this.  This has all been staged.  I’m not saying conspiratorially.  I’m not saying the Wizard of Oz is behind the screen, behind the curtain pulling marionette type strings on puppets and this kind of thing. It’s just that there are now certain destructive aspects of the American culture, civilization, that we have just accepted.  We have resigned ourselves to the fact that they’re gonna happen, in a way, legitimizes them, is the problem here.

And the way the media focuses attention on and counts down, builds the anticipation. And the media leading up to it was not, “Will there or won’t there be a riot?”  There was no question there was going to be a riot.  The only question was, how bad.  And here come the experts predicting the degree of badness of the riot based on whatever the grand jury said.  And while it happened, I’m not saying it didn’t happen, I’m not saying it isn’t real, but at the same time there was nothing spontaneous about this.  It was orchestrated. It was planned. It was going to happen no matter what.

It was going to happen independent of events.  We knew the trigger.  All we had to do was wait for the trigger.  That was the grand jury decision and the report and the announcement, and that was it, and we all knew what was gonna happen.  It’s almost as though we’ve come to expect it, and in a way it’s therefore justified, justifiable.  I don’t know, folks.  I can’t put my finger on this.  And again, I’m not alleging conspiracy.  Don’t misunderstand.  I wish I could find a way to — my problem here is I have feelings about this, and I’m not good at describing the feelings I’ve got.  I’m trying to turn the feelings, convert them into thoughts, which is what I rely on.

There’s something about it that, even though it happened and even though I saw it and even though it was real, there’s something about it that seems illegitimate to me.  (interruption)  Well, it was a stunt.  It was preventable.  But nobody made any effort to stop it.  That’s another thing about this that kind of troubles me in the deep, dark crevices of my mind, is this acceptance, okay, it’s gonna happen, it’s justified, whatever, there was no effort to stop it.  The president didn’t even make an effort.  The president fed the rage when he had his 20-minute little speech, when he was split screened with the riots.

There’s a story out there today, by the way, that that split screen shot is gonna haunt Obama for the rest of his — who in the world believes that?  How in the world is that gonna haunt Obama?  If anybody thinks that that split screen TV shot, here’s Obama on one half of the screen supposedly railing against riots and trying to ask for calm, which is not what he really did.  On the other half of the screen is Ferguson burning and people I guess cannot give up the traditional way of looking at politics and political figures in this country.

If that would have been George W. Bush or George H. W. Bush, maybe even Clinton, it might be something that would haunt.  But what was happening on the screen was not something that troubles Obama.  There’s no way that he could be haunted by this.  Haunted by it means it’s harmful.  Haunted by it means he has no credibility.  Well, there he is out demanding and asking for calm and right next to him on the other side of the screen is Ferguson in flames.  That’s not gonna be a problem for Barack Obama.  A, he’s not responsible for it.  B, he wishes it didn’t happen; but, C, his call for calm was perfunctory.

But even without all of that, that split screen image you could practically do that every day with some sector of life in this country in chaos and say that’s gonna haunt Obama.  I mean, why isn’t Fast and Furious gonna haunt him?  Why isn’t Benghazi?  I mean, those things are not gonna haunt.  Why isn’t using the IRS against the Tea Party, why is that not gonna haunt him?  Why is violating the Constitution not gonna haunt Obama?  None of this is gonna haunt Obama because it’s all working, from his standpoint.  All of these are elements of his “success” story in terms of his ultimate agenda of transforming the country.


RUSH:  Look, let me clarify something.  When I say, “There’s no conspiracy,” of course there is conspiracy between all of the groups that were organizing to protest in Ferguson and all over the country.  Of course that was a conspiracy.  What I’m trying to say was that there was not a conspiracy between all of this and the timing of the grand jury announcement and what the grand jury announcement was gonna be.  I’m trying to make a really, really fine point here and I’m not doing it. I haven’t gotten there yet.

I’m talking about fake versus real, artificial versus substance — and a lot of this is not real.  Politics. People think politics is about the way things are, and it isn’t.  Politics is about the way things appear.  And that’s one of the things that bothers me the most.  What’s happening in our… Look at this Darren Wilson interview, the cop.  Do you realize that to whatever group of people we’re talking about on the other side, it doesn’t matter a hill of beans what the facts are? The truth and what is real doesn’t matter.

There’s no way you can convince them. There’s no way you can convince them to care about the truth and what is real.  It doesn’t matter.  It’s a pointless effort.  And to me — the mayor of Realville and somebody consumed and obsessed by the idea of getting truth out and having people understand it and act on it and believe it and behave according to it — it’s really frustrating to know that, to a large segment of this country, none of that matters.  They don’t care what the truth is.

The agenda is all it is.  The appearance, the fake, whatever it takes in order to advance the agenda.

I’m telling you, it’s destructive.  Liberalism is a poison that is rotting this country, every element of it where it is dominant or growing.


RUSH:  Let me try this another way.  I’m sitting down, Kathryn and I, in front of the TV on whatever the night the grand jury announcement happened. This is Wednesday, so it must have been Monday. The days run together in a short week, I get confused.  Whatever night it was.  And we turned on Fox at nine o’clock, and we’re expecting the announcement at nine o’clock, and by 9:20 there’s no announcement. No, we tuned in at eight o’clock thinking the announcement was — we were off by an hour.

Anyway, the announcement finally came, and I looked at Kathryn, I said, “Listen to all these people on TV.  They’re just vamping and filling time and they’re just trying to flap their gums until the real news is made.”  The whole thing, to me, made me feel like I was watching a scripted event.  Now, one of the allures supposedly of reality TV is that it’s real, that there isn’t a script.  That’s why audiences really like it, like The Real Housewives of whatever, or whatever reality TV show. But let me tell you, there is no such thing as improvisation or reality TV.  It’s all scripted.

The only difference in reality TV and other TV is that the writers in reality TV are not members of unions, and that’s it.  The whole thing feels like a scripted event that I know in advance the outcome.  And, therefore, it isn’t news.  And none of it was spontaneous.  We tuned in all knowing what was gonna happen.  We tuned in expecting what was going to happen.  There was not any thought given by anybody to stopping it.  And what happened?  Sheer barbarism.  People’s businesses were destroyed.  That’s real.  Real live bullets were fired at people.  Real live Molotov cocktails were used.

A woman who saved up everything because her hobby, her passion in life is baking cakes, and she’s black, and she has a place in I think a little strip mall or some street in Ferguson near where all this happened.  It was totally destroyed.  She had nothing to do with any of this.  She was in tears the next day.  From her own neighborhood, people from her own neighborhood and who knows where else, showed up and destroyed her little cake shop.

Now, there’s a great campaign on to refund and donate to her to rebuild, and she’s collected, I think before the program started, over 70 grand and she’s happy as she can be, and thank God for that.  But everybody knew this was gonna happen, maybe not that specific thing, but everybody knew it, the governor knew it.  Where was the National Guard?  The governor knew it. Every law enforcement official knew what was gonna happen. There was no effort to stop it.  The only thing that we speculated about was how bad was this gonna be, how big was it gonna be, and we all tuned in to see that.

We all tuned in to see how bad the destruction, how big the flames, how chaotic.  There wasn’t an effort made to stop it.  We were witnesses to barbarism, scripted barbarism that was designed to tear apart the fabric of an American community, and we sat and watched.  And we had pre-advance knowledge.  They could have put the listings in TV Guide.  Your DVR could have scheduled this because that’s how much in advance we knew it was gonna happen.  Just like any other scheduled television show, which is what this was, except it’s not.

Lives were at risk.  People’s businesses were destroyed. Barbarism was on display.  All-out assaults on the American culture and civilization were taking place.  And there was no effort to stop it.  None, nowhere.  The governor of Missouri, in preparing the state, made it look like it was London in World War II on the eve of the German blitz.  That’s the degree to which he made preparations.

And then for some reason the National Guard was not deployed, and we were told that, well, maybe Obama called on the governor, fellow Democrats, “Keep the Guard out of this. I don’t want militarized pictures during my Regime.  I want to do what I want to do without anybody figuring it out with the pictures, so keep the Guard out of there.”  Who knows.  But we’re left to speculate.

But there wasn’t any effort to stop it.  And then the next day we got questions on television, which should be absurd, but instead they were legitimate:  “Did authorities let Ferguson burn?”  It was a legitimate question, sadly.  “Did authorities let Ferguson burn?”  Why?  There was no effort to stop it.  When the Rodney King riots, the Watts riots of the sixties, when those things started, there were efforts to stop them.  I mean, they played out to a certain point, and I don’t know if you could call ’em great TV or what have you, and they were structured and planned and so forth.  Again, nothing is brand-new in 2014.  Everything has a precedent.  But this is destructive in ways way beyond the riot itself.

This is destructive in ways way beyond the damage to Ferguson, Missouri.  This is destructive because there are a lot of casualties here.  Truth, reality, fact, all casualties.  None of that mattered.  None of it matters today to a significant portion of the population, which is hell-bent on tearing down the modern-day order.  And nobody appears to be willing or knowledgeable enough or whatever to stop it.  Instead, it becomes a television show, a scripted television show.  There was not even a cliffhanger.  We knew who shot J.R. before watching the episode.

The whole thing, I don’t know, folks, it just seems we’re being manipulated in ways that we haven’t been before.  We are really being manipulated by a media complex, in its association with the American left and the Democrat Party, and I think I’m instinctively reacting and objecting to and pushing back against that manipulation and saying, “I’m not gonna fall for it.  You’re not gonna get me.  I am not gonna be manipulated by it.  I’m not gonna get emotionally caught up in this because I know that what I’m seeing on TV is not what this is really all about.”

And that’s the bottom line.  None of this is really, when you get down to brass tacks, you strip all this away, this is not about the grand jury. It’s not about Darren Wilson. It’s not even about the Gentle Giant.  It’s about entirely different things that they don’t show you, that you don’t see.  And it’s the ease with which people are being manipulated and the ease with which people are falling for it, to me, is a problem, and it’s very troublesome.  I look all of this, and I think I understand the purpose of it.  I don’t “think” I know; I know what the ultimate objective to all this is.  You know what it is?

At the end of all this, the real objective is to make you think that it’s ludicrous and ridiculous to oppose any of this or speak out against it ’cause you can’t stop it.  The grievances are too real.  The country is too unjust. The country is illegitimate and immoral, and it’s taken 250 years for this to come to light.  But you’d better learn to accept that, and you’d better learn to accept that if you’ve been on the wrong side, i.e., in the majority in this country since it was founded, your day is coming.  That’s what this is about.  And all of these events are just steps taken in that direction.

I mean, listen to Obama and his speech in Chicago.  Here’s the Breitbart story: “Obama Lectures America About the Justified Anger Towards Law Enforcement in Minority Communities — Tuesday at Copernicus Community Center in Chicago, IL, President Barack Obama addressed the riots and protests going on throughout the country in reaction to the grand jury announcement that Ferguson police officer,” blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.  And that’s just BS.  What he did was he went before a black audience, and this is what he said.  “A grand jury made a decision yesterday that upset a lot of people. And as I said last night, the frustrations that we have seen, are not just about a particular incident.” So, you see, it’s not just about that.

And, by the way, the grand jury decision upset a lot of people, they’re justified being upset. Not because this decision might have been wrong, but because of all the previous ones where people got screwed.  You have to understand. We have to step back and understand what happened, those businesses being destroyed, that barbarism, we had better understand that it is legitimate, because a lot of people were upset.  Maybe this decision, the grand jury got it right, but that doesn’t erase all the wrongs that happened before it which still breed all kinds of frustration.

“As I said last night, the frustrations that we have seen, are not just about a particular incident.” See, it’s about a lot of stuff that came before this. “They have deep roots in many communities of color,” the frustrations do, “who have a sense that our laws are not always being enforced uniformly or fairly.” In other words, even though the facts of the Brown case do not support any claims of an unjust shooting, the anger over all the previous injustices is enough to legitimize the anger this week in Ferguson.

And that’s the problem, folks.  There’s no reason for feeling screwed.  There’s no reason, the facts of this case do not support any claims that the shooting was unjust. “Okay, fine.  Well, what about last year?  What about Trayvon Martin?  What about OJ?” And on and on and on. What about Emmett Till?  And it never ends.  So this incident is used to justify and permit all of this barbarism, not based on what happened this week, but all of the years prior, about which nothing can be done now, see.  The events in the years prior, they’re over and done with, and they have deep roots in many communities of color, who have a sense that our laws are not always being endorsed uniformly or fairly. Even though they might in this case, that doesn’t erase what happened in years past.

Like the Trayvon Martin case, in fact, which ended up not being supported by the facts either.  But that doesn’t matter.  The facts of the Trayvon case have been forgotten just as the facts here will be forgotten.  The news media’s early lies will be remembered.  The Duke lacrosse case is a case is reverse.  If anybody ought to be mad about anything and an injustice and so forth, look at that case.  But were there riots?  Was there barbarism? Was there any kinds of acts of destruction that took place over that injustice?

No, sir, no, ma’am, there were not.  And that was a gross miscarriage of justice.  But, you see, that was also justified because, well, they’re white and they played lacrosse?  Come on.  That means they’re rich.  Come on, even if these guys didn’t do it, you know they wanted to. Even if these guys didn’t, you know it’s happened before.  So these guys pay the price, except they didn’t.

So all of this adds up to this country has a lot to account for, it has a lot of prices to pay, it has a lot of forgiveness, it has a lot to make up for, and you better just get used to it.  And they’re getting so accustomed to it now they’re writing a script of all these events in advance. We know what’s gonna happen. Nobody tries to stop it because everybody, “Yeah, you know, we do kind of suck. Yeah, we were kind of bad back then.  Yeah, I guess we do kind of justify this. We deserve this.”


RUSH: I finally want to get to the point I’m trying to make here about how we’re being manipulated, set up, and staged.  We’re watching scripted events portrayed to us as real and really what I think I’m getting at, I know it will never happen, but if you want to reduce some of the incidents of this stuff, get the cameras out of there. Get the cameras out of there.  Get the media out of there.  In a real protest, in a real riot, the media doesn’t know it’s gonna happen before it starts. They show up afterwards.

Everything that happens is real.  But when you have a riot that everybody knows is coming and you’ve got the cameras and you’ve got the journalists and you’ve got blithering idiots like Don Lemon — do you realize what he did yesterday?  He inadvertently tear gassed himself. Putting on his mask he ended up tear gassing himself.  There’s a piece in the New York Daily News — I hope CNN doesn’t get rid of him because we love Don Lemon. We need him here.  But there’s a really, really critical piece of Don Lemon, a media review in the New York Daily News today, about how out to lunch he is.  They even mention he’s the guy that asked the transportation official could a black hole have swallowed up the Malaysian airliner.

But, at any rate, you get the cameras out of there, you get the script writers out of there, get the media out of there, who knows what would have happened; that’s the point.  But we knew it’s gonna happen, cameras show up, and it just makes what happens after, I’m sorry, unreal.  Even though it was real, this is where it becomes a real challenge to communicate what I’m really talking about here, but if the cameras are not there — now, in this case it probably would have worked the other way. If the cameras weren’t there, the media not being there, the protestors would have torched even more to get ’em to show up.  I understand that.

But when you’ve got an event that everybody knows is gonna happen, you take the cameras out there, it’s not real, folks, when it’s all done for the cameras.  And that’s the point, all this is done for the media. Michael Brown was not shot because he’s black. Trayvon Martin did not die because he’s black.  Now, you can’t convince anybody else of this on the other side.  If they accept that, then everything they’re doing is illegitimate, and they’re not going to agree with that point.

So the whole thing is unreal.  The whole thing is not based on reality.  Everything is a set up.  We’re being manipulated to participate in it and we’re told that what we’re watching is real, but you get the cameras out of there, you get the media out of there and stop all the prepub, same thing might have happened, but I’m telling you it would have felt different, it would have had a whole different set of consequences to it.


RUSH:  Glenn Reynolds runs a website called Instapundit. He’s a law professor at the University of Tennessee and has a theory on why Ferguson happened post-election.  You can understand Trayvon Martin, you can understand all these other things about black turnout, but he thinks that Ferguson, Missouri, has nothing to do with any of that.

“It’s not about swing voters. It’s about the base. And it’s not about the Democratic Party’s base, but about certain leaders’ base within the Democratic Party. This may be best understood as an intra-party struggle. Obama is the champion of the urban-black wing of the party, and because of him that wing has been on top. But his star is fading, black voters are beginning to realize that they haven’t benefited economically, and the next Dem nominee — whether it’s Hillary Clinton, Jim Webb, or Elizabeth Warren — will be from the white gentry-liberal wing of the Democratic Party.”

So he’s talking about the different factions within the Democrat Party.  Obama runs the urban black wing, which would be the Congressional Black Caucus and people that are concerned with the inner city, and that Hillary or Elizabeth Warren, Jim Webb, they’re from the white gentry liberal wing of the Democrat Party.

“The riots, the marches, the traffic-blocking are a way of telling them –” the Hillarys, the Elizabeth Warrens, and the Jim Webbs “– that the Sharpton,” and Jackson, “wing is still a force to be reckoned with,” and that this is all about the Sharpton wing of the Democrat Party demonstrating its power and strength to the Hillary Clintons, the Elizabeth Warrens, as a means of “bargaining power between now and 2016.”

And Reynolds says “that’s the only way this — not at all spontaneous — street theater makes sense.” And folks, this was scripted!  Everybody knew it was coming.  Nobody made an effort to stop it.  It was portrayed as spontaneous, but it wasn’t.  And there’s politics at the end of the rope on it anyway, so there you go.




Since Michael Brown Died, 981 Black Babies Have Died in Abortion in Missouri, But There are No Riots

by Steven Ertelt | Jefferson City, MO | | 11/26/14

URL of Original Posting Site:

Riots are taking place across the country in response to a grand jury’s decision not to indict a Ferguson, Missouri police officer for shooting a black teenager. The decision not to bring charges has renewed difficult racial tensions nationwide.

blackbabyYesterday, LifeNews reported how the Planned Parenthood abortion business fanned the flames of racial divide by aggressively opposing the decision in Ferguson.

Though the events in Ferguson have nothing to do with abortion, Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion CEO Cecile Richards have been very active on Twitter condemning the decision and stoking the racial divide. Ironically, as the abortion giant jumps in the debate, it makes no mention of the fact that it preys on black Americans and aborts black babies at alarming rates.

Today, a pro-life advocate from Missouri put Planned Parenthood’s targeting of black babies in abortion into perspective. She says that while there are riots over the controversial death of a black teen in Missouri, there are no riots over the death of 981 black babies who have died in Missouri since Michael Brown died. She wonders why no one is speaking up for those black victims of violence via abortion.

From Reverend Katherine’s blog:

Today, my native city of St. Louis is under siege; one black man was shot dead by a police National death rate percentagesofficer because he feared for his own life while on duty. The people of Ferguson and surrounding municipalities including St. Louis are looting, setting fires, rolling cars, etc., because of one person.

Since the day that Michael Brown died [Aug 9, 2014], another 981 Black Missourians have died; 9 per day, every day since then. These Black Missourians were unarmed, innocent, and had no ability to defend themselves and died in plain sight. But there is no outrage, no riots, not one protest.

So, while these rioters are trying to destroy my native city of St. Louis because of the death of one Black man, the rioters overlook the fact that just a couple of miles away at Planned Parenthood on Forest Park Avenue, another 109 Black babies have died since Michael Brown.

Why aren’t the rioters at Planned Parenthood defending themselves and their future generations? Why do they allow themselves to be essentially exterminated by abortion but riot over one?

Everyone’s life has value regardless of how many people die or in what circumstances. Michael Brown’s life had value in the same manner as the lives of black babies killed in abortion, yet we’re outraged by the taking of one life and not the other.

What do you think?



**Media Shock**: New York Times Publishes Darren Wilson’s Address Info

by 25 Nov 2014

Liberal Media BiasUPDATE: The New York Times has posted a correction to the story: “An earlier version of this post included a photograph that contained information that should not have been made public. The image has been removed.”

However, the “information that should not have been made public,” in the Times’ view, is not the name of the street where Officer Wilson’s home is located. The story still contains that information. The Times has merely removed the photo of Wilson’s marriage license from the article.

Breitbart News will not link the story or give out the specific information, but the New York Times had no qualms whatsoever about publishing almost all the information needed for Officer Darren Wilson’s enemies to track him and his wife down at home:

Officer Wilson and [his wife] own a home together on XXXXXXX Lane in XXXXXXXXXX, Mo., a St. Louis suburb about a half-hour drive from Ferguson. Trial of Officer

This malicious move by the New York Times has not gone unnoticed by Ferguson’s protesters:

But printing his street name in the nation’s most influential newspaper on the day the grand jury is expected to hand up a decision on the indictment could reignite interest in — and awareness of — the location, and some critics worry that it could result in protesters descending on his home. Slate even went a step further than the Times, publishing an article featuring a photo of the modest, red-brick house on Monday.

A number of Twitter users — some of whom have identified themselves as planning to protest the grand jury decision — have tweeted the location of Wilson’s home as they gear up for rallies. The house number was not printed in the Times, but the street in the St. Louis suburb of Crestwood where it sits is only about two blocks long, and the house number can be easily located via online sources using only the street name and Wilson’s name.

This type of behavior is nothing new from our elite media. When the media was pulling out the stops to electronically lynch George Zimmerman like they are Wilson, CNN broadcast Zimmerman’s Social Security number to the world.

When the media wants you destroyed they want you destroyed.



Mark Levin on Ferguson: ‘What We Are Witnessing Now Is the Left’s War on the Civil Society’

by 25 Nov 2014

 From Mark Levin’s Facebook page:

Ferguson burns and violence has been unleashed thanks to the reckless liberal media, the lawless administration (especially Eric Holder) exploiting the shooting to smear police departments across the nation, phony civil rights demagogues, race-baiting politicians, and radical hate groups.

The lies about why and how Officer Darrin Wilson shot Michael Brown started on day one and never ended. The indisputable facts are that Brown was shot because he assaulted a police officer, attempted to take the officer’s pistol resulting in two close range gun shots in the police cruiser, and then turned around and charged the officer as he was being pursued. The entire event was precipitated by Brown earlier stealing cigars from a local store and assaulting the owner.

What we are witnessing now is the left’s war on the civil society. It’s time to speak out in defense of law enforcement and others trying to protect the community and uphold the rule law.



How Some Islamist Supporters Are Reacting to the Ferguson Unrest

Following the eruption of violence in Ferguson, Missouri, some apparent supporters of Middle East Islamists added their voice to the debate, accusing the U.S. of being a “fake” democracy, likening the U.S. to a terrorist group, and calling for Shariah law to be implemented in the U.S.

It all came as a result of the no indictment of police officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Journalist Jenan Moussa with the Dubai-based Al Aan television first reported Tuesday morning that supporters of the Islamic State group and others were actively commenting on the Ferguson developments using Arabic hashtags which translate to “America burning” and “America collapsing.”

Report: Two New Black Panther Members Arrested with Explosives Near Ferguson

by 21 Nov 2014

URL of Original Posting Site: 01

The FBI arrested two alleged New Black Panther members on Thursday on outstanding warrants, they’re “accused of purchasing explosives they apparently planned to use during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, a law enforcement source told CBS News.”

It’s believed they planned to use the explosives in pipe bombs. The men are said to be from the St. Louis area and were arrested as part of an FBI undercover operation.

Last Updated Nov 22, 2014 7:56 AM EST/

The FBI arrested two men earlier this week on firearms charges as part of increased law enforcement presence in Ferguson, Missouri, ahead of a grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Court documents show Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis face charges of making false written statements in connection with a firearms purchase and aiding and abetting. FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu told CBS News the suspects were arrested on outstanding warrants.

A law enforcement source said the two men allegedly purchased explosive material during an FBI undercover operation to possibly use during Ferguson protests.

Court documents show Baldwin and Davis were arrested and charged with the illegal purchase of two Hi-Point .45 ACP pistols.

Within days, a grand jury investigating the Aug. 9 shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown is expected to decide whether white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson should face criminal charges.

The FBI said Friday it has deployed about 100 agents to the St. Louis area ahead of the decision, in case demonstrators take to the streets as they did after Brown’s death.

St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley said Friday that police, government leaders and protesters have met in recent weeks to discuss so-called “rules of engagement” if protests arise.

Brown’s family, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have urged the community to remain calm, no matter what the grand jury decides.



Ferguson protestors say it’s ‘inevitable’ cop will NOT be charged with killing Michael Brown as they await grand jury decision- and Obama secretly meets with activists to tell them to ‘stay on course’

  • Tensions rising ahead of anticipated grand jury decision in Missouri this week
  • Revealed that President Obama met with activists and encouraged them to continue their peaceful protests 

Protesters are gathering in support of Michael Brown in and around St. Louis as they nervously await what many believe will be an inevitable no-indictment vote in the coming days by a grand jury for the officer who shot him.

Demonstrators held a ‘die-in’ Sunday to mark 100 days since the unarmed Ferguson, Missouri teen was killed. They also convened to, among other things, prepare for the imminent court decision by issuing ‘rules of engagement’ for police there for crowd control, the New York Times reports.

Many of the high-profile protesters met with President Obama and discussed the matter November 5, including Reverend Al Sharpton. It was a meeting the Gateway Pundit notes was not included on the president’s daily schedule.racismjacksonsharptonobamaracebaiterssettingamericaback

Sharpton told the Times that Obama urged the group to ‘stay on course.’

A crowd of a couple hundred demonstrators, angry about the fatal August shooting took to the streets of St. Louis on Sunday, briefly blocking a major intersection in protest.

Dozens of people lay down in the street outside of a downtown theater hosting a film festival, pretending to have been shot by other demonstrators playing the role of police officers in an action intended to evoke the memory of 18-year-old Brown, who died 100 days ago in front of his home in the suburb of Ferguson.

Marchers went on to briefly block a major intersection near Washington University and the event ended without any of the violence that was seen in Ferguson following Brown’s shooting death by police officer Darren Wilson.

‘This is a mature movement. It is a different movement that it was in August. Then it just had anger, justifiable anger,’ said DeRay McKesson, a 29-year-old protest leader, as wet snow fell on the city. ‘Now we are organized. We are strategizing. And we are going to bring our message to the power structure.’

A grand jury, sitting in the county seat of Clayton, Missouri, is currently deliberating whether to bring criminal charges against Wilson. Many residents and officials in the region fear another wave of rioting similar to the one in August that led to the burning out of multiple businesses if the grand jury decides not to charge Wilson.

‘We are bracing for that possibility. That is what many people are expecting. The entire community is going to be upset,’ if Wilson is not indicted, said Jose Chavez, 46, a leader of the local Latinos en Axion group.

There have been conflicting witness accounts of the shooting, with some saying that Brown had his hands up in surrender while others have described it as a struggle between Brown and Wilson.

Ferguson and its surroundings have been fairly quiet the last few days as both police and protesters plan their response to the grand jury’s report.

‘We’ve decided not to wait for that decision. We’ve decided to get started,’ said Rockit Ali, a 22-year-old organizer of Sunday’s demonstration, who marched in a Spider-Man mask.

While Sunday’s event had been planned as a nonviolent action, Ali said that violence could not be ruled out if the grand jury finds Wilson without fault.

From Boston to Los Angeles, police departments are bracing for large demonstrations when the grand jury decides.

The St. Louis County grand jury, which has been meeting since August 20, is expected to decide this month whether Officer Darren Wilson is charged with a crime for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown after ordering him and a friend to stop walking in the street on August 9.

For some cities, a decision in the racially charged case will, inevitably, reignite long-simmering debates over local police relations with minority communities.

‘It’s definitely on our radar,’ said Lt. Michael McCarthy, police spokesman in Boston, where police leaders met privately Wednesday to discuss preparations. ‘Common sense tells you the timeline is getting close. We’re just trying to prepare in case something does step off, so we are ready to go with it.’

In Los Angeles, rocked by riots in 1992 after the acquittal of police officers in the videotaped beating of Rodney King, police officials say they’ve been in touch with their counterparts in Missouri, where Gov. Jay Nixon and St. Louis-area law enforcement held a news conference this week on their own preparations.


A St. Louis County town that neighbors Ferguson, Missouri, is warning residents to prepare for potential unrest that may follow the grand jury announcement in the Michael Brown case.

Berkeley officials passed out flyers this week urging its 9,000 residents to be prepared just as they would in the event of a major storm, with plenty of food, water and medicine on hand in case they’re unable to leave home for several days.

The flyer says Lambert Airport will be protected by the National Guard, but airport spokesman Jeff Lea says that’s wrong. Lea says the airport will continue to be protected by its own security force.

Brown was killed Aug. 9 by Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson. A grand jury is expected to decide this month whether to charge Wilson.

A suburban St. Louis school district says schools will get early notice once the Ferguson grand jury reaches a decision.

If it’s a weekday, Tobias says districts will learn three hours before media, so students can be sent home before potential protests. District spokesman Jack Wang says districts won’t be told what the decision is.

The grand jury is expected to decide this month whether to charge white Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old who was black and unarmed.

A prosecutor’s office spokesman didn’t return messages seeking comment.

Indict America: Protesters made some startling statements as they awaited the grand jury decision

In Las Vegas, police joined pastors and other community leaders this week to call for restraint at a rally tentatively planned northwest of the casino strip when a decision comes.

In Boston, a group called Black Lives Matter, which has chapters in other major cities, is organizing a rally in front of the police district office in the Roxbury neighborhood the day after an indictment decision.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, police are expecting demonstrations after having dealt with a string of angry protests following a March police shooting of a homeless camper and more than 40 police shootings since 2010.

Philadelphia police spokesman Lt. John Stanford said he anticipated his city will see demonstrations, regardless of what the grand jury returns.

But big-city police departments stressed they’re well-equipped to handle crowds. Many saw large but mostly peaceful demonstrations following the 2013 not-guilty verdict in the slaying of Florida teen Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman. In New York, hundreds of protesters marched from Union Square north to Times Square, where a sit-in caused gridlock.

The New York Police Department, the largest in the nation, is ‘trained to move swiftly and handle events as they come up,’ spokesman Stephen Davis said.

In Boston, McCarthy said the city’s 2,200 sworn police officers have dealt with the range of public actions, from sports fans spontaneously streaming into the streets following championship victories to protest movements like Occupy.

‘The good thing is that our relationships here with the community are much better than they are around the world,’ he said. ‘People look to us as a model. Boston is not Ferguson.’

Ferguson Resident: ‘We are Getting Prepared for War’

By CBS Radio,

URL Of Original Posting Site:

FERGUSON, Mo. (CBS St. Louis/AP) – Ferguson is “getting prepared for war” if a grand jury doesn’t indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson told CBS News he has been meeting with students, gang members and ministers about what might happen following the grand jury decision that is expected to come down this month.

“There’s a lot of fear. A lot of people are afraid of what could happen,” Johnson explained. “In the end, this is gonna be the community we have to live in.”

Ronardo Ward, 33, is one of those hoping to maintain peace in Ferguson if Wilson isn’t indicted.

“We are getting prepared for war,” Ward told CBS News. “And that’s just crazy.”

Michael Johnson, 42, believes many young people will rail against the “system.”

“There’s gonna be a lot of angry young people that’s pretty much not gonna listen to the system anymore,” Michael Johnson said. “Why should they?”comment 02

Protests have been going on for months following Brown’s death in August.

“The destruction here symbolizes this community, and how fragile and crumbled things are here,” Johnson told CBS News.comment 03

Despite the potential violence, Johnson doesn’t believe Ferguson is ready to explode if Wilson is not indicted.

“I don’t think it’s going to be as bad as people want to make it out to be, but I think there’s some tough times ahead,” Johnson stated.

Activists asked last Wednesday for advance notice before prosecutors announce whether Wilson will face charges in the shooting death of Brown, saying they can help prevent widespread violence if they have 48 hours to prepare for protests.

Members of the Don’t Shoot Coalition said at a news conference that they want to “de-escalate violence without de-escalating action” once a grand jury decides whether to indict Wilson, who is white, for the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown, who was black.

The coalition represents more than 50 organizations including union workers, clergy, anti-war activists and black empowerment groups. Its members are leaders of the protests that erupted across the region after Brown’s death and have continued in the three months since.Picture1

“Everyone around the United States and much of the world is looking at St. Louis,” said Michael McPhearson, executive director of Veterans for Peace. “There’s much anticipation as to what happens next.”

Demonstrators on Wednesday criticized the use of tear gas, riot equipment and armored vehicles by county and local police in the early days of the protests. The heavy initial response led Gov. Jay Nixon to summon the National Guard and temporarily put the Missouri Highway Patrol in charge of Ferguson crowd control.

Ed Magee, a spokesman for St. Louis County Attorney Bob McCulloch, who is overseeing the grand jury investigation, met with McPhearson and attorney Denise Lieberman earlier Wednesday and said the coalition’s request for 48 hours’ notice of a grand jury decision is “being considered.”

The grand jury was expected to hear evidence in Brown’s case until mid-November, but McCulloch said Tuesday night that its work could continue for several more weeks. Brown, 18, was unarmed when Wilson encountered him walking in the street with a friend. A scuffle ensued and Brown was shot multiple times. Witness accounts of what happened varied, with some saying they saw Brown raise his hands as if in surrender.

“After the verdict, no matter what it is, people are going to pour into the street — either in celebration or in rage,” said Montague Simmons, chairman of the Organization for Black Struggle. “It’s in the best interest of the public, the police and elected officials who control the actions of the police to work together to protect the rights of people to engage in civil disobedience and expression of their First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly.”

Organizers have created 19 “rules of engagement” they want police to follow, including calls to treat protesters as “citizens and not enemy combatants.”

County police Chief Jon Belmar earlier this week reiterated that police do not intend to impede peaceful dissent but said he wouldn’t take anything off the table when asked about the use of tear gas and other tactics.

“I have a responsibility…to make sure that everybody walks out of this on the other end,” he said.

Ferguson Waits Uneasily for Grand Jury’s Decision

NOV. 7, 2014

FERGUSON, Mo. — Walk down West Florissant Avenue, and the scars of the summer are still there. The door and display window of a beauty supply store remain covered with plywood; a glued-up poster, “Beauty Town Is Back,” is the one hopeful sign of the life inside. A cellphone store, too, still has the plywood up from when riots and confrontations with the police shook this neighborhood. And the Family of Faith Baptist Church uses its billboard to proclaim, “Join us as we pray for peace.”

But few are expecting peace as this St. Louis suburb prepares for a grand jury decision, expected in the next few weeks, on whether to indict the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man in August, inciting months of protests and putting Ferguson at the center of a national debate over the police and race.

Here, where heavily fortified police officers faced the demonstrators and the nights sometimes turned violent, even those shopkeepers who put in new windows are boarding up again.

“I hate this,” said Dan McMullen, the president of Solo Insurance Services, as he sat behind his desk on Thursday. During the course of a 20-minute conversation, his phone did not ring; no customers walked through the door. “Business is terrible,” he lamented. “The customers don’t want to come here anymore. We all know the grand jury is going to come back in the next couple of weeks, and everyone knows there won’t be an indictment. This time around will be a lot more violent.”

What Happened in Ferguson?

Why did the police shoot an unarmed black teenager in a St. Louis suburb, and what has unfolded since then? Here’s what you need to know about the situation in Missouri.

Mr. McMullen, a former police officer who is white, opened his desk drawer to show the loaded revolver that he keeps there.


“I don’t anticipate having to use it,” he said, but added that he was prepared to do so if necessary to defend his business.

All around this small suburb, people are bracing for the grand jury’s decision, with the wide expectation that the officer, Darren Wilson, will not face serious charges for shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown six times.

Government officials have said that forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on Officer Wilson’s gun, giving credence to the officer’s account that at one point he was pinned in his vehicle and engaged in a struggle over his gun with Mr. Brown. He told investigators that he had feared for his life, and police officers are typically given wide latitude to defend themselves if they feel their safety is threatened.

Nor are civil rights charges expected. Federal officials have said that while their investigation is continuing, the evidence so far does not support such a case against Officer Wilson.

But people protesting police tactics, who have continued to hold marches here since the shooting on Aug. 9, say they envision larger, angrier demonstrations should Officer Wilson not be charged. Fearing renewed unrest, the police in the region have bought new riot gear, called meetings with nearby departments and held special training seminars.

School leaders are reviewing emergency contingency plans and urging officials to announce the grand jury finding outside of school hours — perhaps on a Sunday, so that children returning home are not caught in a melee.

On Friday, President Obama spoke by phone with Gov. Jay Nixon to get an update on the situation. Earlier in the day, he was briefed by the Justice Department on efforts to assist state and local governments as needed.

Behind the scenes, government officials at various levels have been struggling with how to orchestrate and blunt the effects of the grand jury announcement. Investigators in Missouri want the Justice Department to announce the results of its civil rights investigation at the same time, according to several people briefed on the case, who insisted on anonymity to discuss confidential conversations. Yet Justice Department officials, who have promised that their investigation will be independent, do not want to coordinate announcements.

racismjacksonsharptonobamaracebaiterssettingamericabackOther government officials have been privately discussing whether they can pressure the Ferguson police chief, Thomas Jackson, to step down, or somehow substitute the St. Louis County police for the local force. The county prosecutor, Robert P. McCulloch, has said that if the grand jury does not indict Officer Wilson, he will take the unusual step of releasing the evidence for public scrutiny if a judge approves.

 Mr. Brown’s parents are preparing to call on the people of Ferguson not to react violently to the grand jury’s decision, even though they have little faith in the prosecutor, according to their lawyer, Benjamin L. Crump. “We want people to pray that the system will work, but the family doesn’t have much confidence at all,” Mr. Crump said. Nor, he added, are they confident that the local police will deal properly even with peaceful protesters.

Regardless of what the grand jury decides, Mr. Crump said the Browns would dedicate themselves to pressuring the federal government and states to pass “Michael Brown laws” that would require officers to wear video cameras.

“The real change they want is for people to use their frustration and turn it into legislation,” he said. “If you get the Mike Brown law passed, nobody will have to deal with something like this and the insult to injury afterwards.”

Some protest groups have said that they are urging demonstrators to be peaceful. The Don’t Shoot Coalition, which formed in the aftermath of the shooting, is pressing local officials for coordination in advance of the grand jury’s return so that members can adequately prepare for the announcement. The coalition, which represents about 50 groups, said this week that it was promoting “a peaceful response” from demonstrators.

The group also asked the police to do their part. Michael T. McPhearson, a co-chairman, said in a statement that the police should provide protesters “adequate space.” The police should also shun the use of tear gas and armored vehicles, the group said, and allow protesters to retreat to predetermined “sanctuary safe spaces.”

Elected officials have tried to soothe nerves in recent days, even as some police departments have bought more pepper-spray balls, flexible handcuffs and batons, and, in the case of at least one department, decided to delay repairing police vehicles until any unrest is over. Anxious business owners filled part of a banquet hall here the other night, brimming with worries.

racecard1At the meeting, billed as a “disaster preparedness seminar,” they peppered city officials with questions: If Officer Wilson faces no charges, will Ferguson be able to manage the ensuing protests? Should they be stocking up on fire extinguishers, in case someone tries to burn down their stores? Should they arm themselves? Yon Kim, a clerk at a beauty supply store, later described the growing tension. “I know it’s not going to be smooth,” she said. “The customers are already scared. And if something happens, we don’t know if insurance is going to cover it.”

“There’s going to be protests,” Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff, an assistant Ferguson police chief, told the business owners, while urging them to be careful how they respond. “Once you pull that trigger,” he warned, “you cannot pull that bullet back.”

Among the other bits of less-than-reassuring guidance for business owners: Empty your trash often, fire officials said, so it is not set aflame during protests. And Mayor James Knowles III suggested that people steer clear of the area in the evening if protests break out. “By 8, 9 o’clock, nothing good is going to happen out on the streets,” Mr. Knowles said. “When the gremlins come out, you’re just going to get caught in the crossfire.”

And the protests go on. Nearly every night, demonstrators gather in front of Police Headquarters on South Florissant Road, chanting and confronting police officers with expletive-laden cries and promises to shut the streets down.

On Wednesday evening, an unusually large crowd of more than 100 protesters was there, many with garish Guy Fawkes masks of white faces. The police, wearing riot gear and armed with plastic handcuffs, warned the protesters that if they continued to block the road, they would be arrested. The group defied the police, marching down the middle of the street and leaving a traffic jam behind race-card-al-sharpton-race-baiter-race-pimp-justice-brother-politics-1340765468them. Some pounded on cars whose drivers were trying to maneuver through. One driver, a white-haired older woman, turned onto South Florissant, saw the protesters and did a hasty U-turn to avoid being trapped by the crowd.

At times, officers appeared to struggle to remain calm in the face of insults. “You’re three-fifths of a person,” one woman taunted a black police officer, who turned his back and walked in the opposite direction.

The leaders of at least three police departments — the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the St. Louis County Police Department and the St. Louis Police Department — have held regular meetings as part of an effort at unified preparation. “We’re focused on the preservation of life and property,” Jon Belmar, the chief of the county police, said in an interview. His department spent $37,741 in October on helmets, shields, batons and shin guards.

A central goal, some law enforcement officials said, is to ensure that peaceful demonstrators are able to voice their views while also preventing violence.

The St. Louis Police Department has spent $325,000 on new equipment, including riot gear; sent 350 officers to training sessions on how to manage civil disobedience; and met with police chiefs from other communities around the nation that have dealt with unrest. Still under consideration are canceled days off for officers and 12-hour shifts. “We’ll be prepared to respond,” said D. Samuel Dotson III, the chief in St. Louis.

satisfied peopleCapt. Ronald S. Johnson, the Missouri State Highway Patrol official who became the public face of law enforcement here after early clashes, said he had spoken to school groups and church panels about long-term changes needed in Ferguson. Still, the grand jury’s looming decision comes up regularly.

“I tell them that we’re going to make it through whatever happens,” Captain Johnson said in an interview. “I also tell them that it is my belief that whatever happens is not going to be as bad as we believe it’s going to be. I also tell them that I believe we’ll be better for it. But I tell them that I look at each day for each day.”

Missouri rock-oriented radio station KFNS-FM, 100.7 “The Viper,” released a news item Tuesday evening that, if true, will destroy the case against Darren Wilson, the officer who shot and killed Brown.

Under the banner headline, “”JUSTIFIED!,” the station reported on its Facebook page:

Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction.

Johnson’s prior testimony that Wilson shot Brown in the back while running away from the officer was cast in doubt after autopsy reports indicated he was shot in the front.

Since the Ferguson, Mo., shooting, that area has become the scene of nightly looting, vandalism and racially-charged demonstrations. The vast majority of the demonstrators have called for the officer’s arrest.

In a video address released Tuesday, even Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, has called for Wilson’s “vigorous prosecution.”

Readers should be cautioned that the radio station’s breaking news item has so far been uncorroborated.
