Black Racism is Politically Correct
American Thinker, by Kevin Jackson    Original Article
Posted By: geo11- 8/19/2014 3:39:31 AM     Post Reply
I´m amazed at how openly racist black Liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it. I was waiting to be interviewed on CNN the other night, and I was listening in advance of my appearance to an interview of a Missouri legislator said to Don Lemmon, [pp] "The way for Ferguson Missouri to improve public relations is to have more black cops." Can you imagine the reaction if a city asked for more white cops? This call for "blackness" as an answer to what´s plaguing the black community is happening a lot, and quite frankly is

One in 10 Venezuelan claims to be seeking information or making arrangements for leaving the country, according to data disclosed by the latest Omnibus survey conducted by research firm Datanálisis. The figure exceeds the numbers pertaining to the highest peaks of emigration from Venezuela in the last decade: after the coup of 2002 and after the presidential recall referendum in 2004. Luis Vicente León, the president of Datanálisis, explains that the survey consists of three basic questions about emigration. First, interviewees are asked if they have a family member who has left the country. Twenty-seven percent of respondents replied affirmatively. This means that

Cairo - Unidentified warplanes on Monday bombed a small arms depot and other locations in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, that are controlled by Islamist-aligned militias, suggesting that a foreign state had intervened in the escalating battle for control of the city. At least six people were killed, The Associated Press reported. The origin of the planes remained a mystery. (Snip) The airstrikes were beyond the capacity of the limited Libyan Air Force, and Libyan authorities said the planes had come from a foreign state. The United States, France, Italy and Egypt all denied responsibility. “The United States was not involved whatsoever in these

Ron Paul: Local police not ´warriors´
Politico, by Jonathan Topaz    Original Article

Former Rep. Ron Paul on Monday called for the elimination of the Defense Department program that has transferred billions of dollars in surplus military equipment to local and state agencies. “It should be gotten rid of,” the Texas Republican said on MSNBC of the Pentagon 1033 program, which has come under increased scrutiny because of the equipment used by St. Louis County police forces in Ferguson, Missouri. “Police are supposed to be local people, and they’re supposed to be peace officers,” he added. “They’re not supposed to be warriors.” The former presidential candidate and libertarian favorite said he was “strongly opposed” to

Correction: An earlier version of this post mislabeled the second-largest spending category on children. It is childcare and education. It will cost an average middle-income family nearly a quarter-million dollars to raise a child in 2013 to adulthood. Food, housing, childcare, education and other expenses will total $245,340 by the time the child turns 18, the Department of Agriculture estimates in a new report. That is a 1.8 percent increase over the year before. In 2013 alone, the cost of caring for a child ranges from $12,800 to $14,970. The report relies on data from the Labor Department’s Consumer Expenditure Survey,

Before Texas Governor Rick Perry´s criminal indictment, before national attention turned its focus to the state capital Austin and Perry´s 2016 presidential ambitions - Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was arrested for drunk driving. Lehmberg, a Democrat, is one of the most powerful prosecutors in the state. She had a blood alcohol level of 0.239percent - nearly three times the legal limit - when she was arrested in April 2013. Jailhouse video shows her drunk, belligerent, threatening officers, kicking the door of her cell and repeatedly trying to pull rank in the Travis County Detention Center.

Washington - A specially equipped U.S. ship has finished neutralizing all 600 metric tons of the most dangerous of Syria´s chemical weapons components surrendered to the international community this year to avert threatened air strikes, the Pentagon said on Monday. It said the Cape Ray, equipped with the U.S.-developed Field Deployable Hydrolysis System, neutralized 581.5 metric tons of DF, a sarin precursor chemical, and 19.8 metric tons of HD, an ingredient of sulfur mustard, while afloat in the Mediterranean. Damascus agreed last September to a Russian proposal to give up its chemical weapons to avert threatened military strikes

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas commented on Monday evening for the first time about the Israel Security Agency’s (Shin Bet) revelation that it foiled a Hamas network´s plot to carry out a coup in Judea and Samaria. In a statement quoted on Channel 2 News, Abbas said that the implications of the revealed plot “will be serious for the Palestinian and regional situation, especially after Israeli officials published a list and pictures of confiscated weapons." Abbas stressed that the reports endanger the unity of the Palestinian people as its leadership tries to form a unity government. "We are living

Tired of her kids ignoring her phone calls, this Texas mom taught herself how to develop an app and created “Ignore No More.” “We need to develop an app that just shuts their phone completely down and they can’t even use it,” Sharon Standifird, a mother of two, told ABC 13. “I got on the Internet and I literally just started researching how to develop an app.” Once parents install the app, they will be able to take control of their children’s smartphones when they believe their phone calls or messages are being ignored.

The wrong-headed case
against Texas Gov. Rick Perry
Washington Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 8/18/2014 10:15:10 PM     Post Reply
THERE ARE MANY fair grounds on which to criticize Rick Perry’s performance as governor of Texas: his rejection of federal funding for Medicaid expansion and his grandstanding deployment of the state’s National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, to name just two. But the list does not include the charges newly levied against him by an Austin grand jury. It’s true that the case revolves around bare-knuckled tactics by Mr. Perry (R). Last year, he threatened to veto $7.5 million in funding for the prosecutorial unit in Austin that investigates public corruption, unless that unit’s boss, an elected Democratic district

Kurdish peshmerga forces backed by American fighter jets recaptured Iraq´s largest dam from the Islamic State on Monday, in what US President Barack Obama called a "major step forward" in the fight against the jihadists. Local forces seized control of the dam after dismantling a complicated network of land mines and booby traps lain by the Islamic State fighters, who had themselves fled the area earlier in the day after a sortie of airstrikes by American F-18 fighter jets. [Snip] If the dam is intentionally damaged, or even just not properly maintained, it could unleash a 60ft-high wall of water

Vice President Joe Biden’s office stonewalled a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for his travel expenses, according to Ronald Kessler’s new tell-all book on the Secret Service, The First Family Detail. Kessler, a former Wall Street Journal and Washington Post investigative reporter, filed a FOIA request in April 2013 with the Air Force for the details and costs of Biden’s personal trips. “But in what amounts to a cover-up on behalf of the vice president, on June 6, Biden’s office blocked transmitting the results to me and told Air Force officers they were not to comment to anyone about the case,”

The State Department defended missile sales to Turkey just hours after news emerged that Ankara is hosting and abetting a senior Hamas operative who planned to violently overthrow the Palestinian government in the West Bank and wage war on Israel. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf defended the transfer of Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) to Turkey just days after she was forced to explain why the White House had stepped in to block similar weapons shipments to Israel. Reporters at Harf’s daily briefing expressed confusion as to why arms shipments would be stopped to Israel yet permitted to Turkey, despite

President Obama stopped by for an unscheduled dinner on Monday night at the home of Sam Kass, a White House chef and adviser to first lady Michelle Obama. A White House pool report said his deputy chief of staff Anita Decker Breckenridge also joined him for the dinner. No other details were provided. Obama flew back to Washington from Martha´s Vineyard, Mass. on Sunday night, breaking up his two-week vacation. But it is unclear if Monday night´s dinner is the reason Obama made the trip back to Washington before he returns to Martha´s Vineyard to resume his vacation on Tuesday.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry picked up another statement of support from a potential 2016 presidential rival. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, issued a statement Monday in support of Perry, who was indicted in Austin last week on abuse of power charges by a Travis County grand jury. “I have complete faith and confidence in Governor Perry’s honesty and integrity,” Christie said in a statement released through the RGA. “And I’m sure that will be confirmed over time.” Christie joins Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal — all attracting notice

Utah officials are scrambling to prevent the Obama administration from locking down thousands of acres of land in their backyard, as federal officials consider up to a dozen possible national monument designations – all in western states. The Antiquities Act gives U.S. presidents the authority to unilaterally declare public lands as national monuments at the stroke of a pen, with no input from the public unless they choose to seek it. Many national monuments eventually go on to become national parks. National Parks Conservation Association spokeswoman Kristen Brengel said the practice has been used for over a century to preserve

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

Right on cue Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks drag Lesley McSpadden, the mother of Mike Brown, in front of GMA to outline the next request/step in the scheme. In 2012 Benjamin Crump described getting the arrest as “getting to second base”. Second base is the arrest. “All we want is an arrest”. (Snip) Once they get to Second Base (The Arrest) a financial hurdle will have been removed, as the arrest will suffice for probable cause of a wrongful death claim.

It goes by the name Wax, Butter and Honeycomb on the streets, and it can pack a kick equal to 15 to 20 joints of marijuana. The new drug looks and feels like lip balm. It´s made from the oils of marijuana plants and has a high level of THC - the chemical that produces a high. Police say while it is easy to make, the ingredients needed to make it are flammable which could lead to burns or even cause a house to explode!

NEW YORK — Two influential NFL voices — including CBS lead analyst Phil Simms, who will handle Washington´s Week 4 game — said Monday they likely won´t use the term "Redskins" when discussing the franchise. "My very first thought is it will be Washington the whole game," Simms told The Associated Press on Monday. Simms will work the Thursday night package the network acquired this season and will have Giants-Redskins on Sept. 25. He isn´t taking sides in the debate over whether Washington´s nickname is offensive or racist. But he says he is sensitive to the complaints about the name,

Before he was shot and killed, Michael Brown allegedly bum rushed officer Darren Wilson multiple times, punched him in the face, grabbed his gun and caused it to discharge, and even taunted Wilson, saying, "You´re not going to shoot me," according to a woman who claims to know Wilson´s significant other. Last week, "Josie" called into KFTK NewsTalk 97.1 and said Wilson allegedly thought Brown was "on something" and felt Brown´s actions were "unbelievable." CNN has since reported that her recollection matches what Wilson told police after the incident. "Josie" told host Dana Loesch that Wilson´s "significant other told me"
