Rush Limbaugh: New Media Prevented
Mainstream Media from Turning
´Gentle Giant´ into Rodney King
Breitbart Big Journalism, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 8/22/2014 8:48:39 PM     Post Reply
Rush Limbaugh said the mainstream media, as desperately as they tried, could not turn "gentle giant" Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson after Brown allegedly charged and beat him, into Rodney King because of today´s new media. Even though Rodney King resisted the arrest of officers who tried all they could to detain him without using force, the nation never got to see the full video. Instead, the mainstream media used an edited one-minute clip of officers brutally beating King after he charged them to fan the flames, trying to hammer home the notion

‘Extorting’ Is the Word For
Government Action Against
Bank of America

The $16.65 billion settlement by Bank of America over financial-crisis-era mortgage securities “highlights a pattern of the government extorting the banks,” Dick Kovacevich said on CNBC this week. (Italics mine.) Mr. Kovacevich is the former Wells Fargo chairman. I’ve known him for years. He ran a great bank. He kept Wells Fargo clean during the credit meltdown. Unusual for a big-bank CEO, he strongly supports free-market principles. Mr. Kovacevich went on to say, “It’s definitely politics. It has nothing to do with justice or restitution to the innocent victims. In fact, more of the money is going to the coffers

Ali Muhammad Brown was already a suspect in the murder of three Seattle men when he shot 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin eight times at a West Orange traffic light in his home state of New Jersey in June. Brown is described as a devout Muslim man who killed as part of what prosecutors allege was a “bloody crusade” against the United States. He sought revenge against America for what he said was the wonton killing of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tevlin was allegedly Brown’s fourth victim. Brown’s victims, with the exception of Tevlin, had a similar background: they were young,

Santa Barbara County officials issued an arrest warrant Friday for a 24-year-old man who stopped treatment for tuberculosis and who they say poses a public health risk. Agustin Zeferino, 24, received "extensive" information and medication for his illness, but he discontinued his treatment, public health officials said. He has not been seen for two weeks. Authorities checked his last known address but have not been able to locate him, said Susan Klein-Rothschild, a spokeswoman for the Santa Barbara County Health Department. If he does not continue his treatment, she said his lung condition could worsen, he could die or he

A declassified intelligence report released by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) this week showed Hamas terrorists have been firing rockets at Israel from heavily populated civilian areas, including churches, United Nations facilities, Red Cross stations, hospitals, schools, children’s playgrounds, and a number of other areas. The report, which was declassified by the IDF earlier this week, includes previously unreleased statistics and military surveillance videos showing Hamas launching missiles from many of these civilian locations, which constitutes a war crime. New evidence is presented that Hamas used several United Nations schools run by the Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) as a base from which

There’s Very Little in the Michael
Brown Shooting Incident Report
Time Magazine, by Alex Altman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/22/2014 8:03:54 PM     Post Reply
Nearly two weeks after Michael Brown’s death, a police report on the shooting has finally been made public. But the glaring lack of detail is likely to increase widespread criticism that the law-enforcement community is closing ranks around Darren Wilson, the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9. The incident report, filed by the St. Louis County police department, contains no new information on the encounter between Brown and Wilson. There are no written details about the event. As a result, the officer’s account of what transpired when the two men met just after noon on Aug. 9 remains a mystery.

Mexico City - Mexican avocados, on their journey to guacamole bowls the world over, often first pass through cartel-controlled farmlands, where extortion can raise prices, drag down the economy and put farmers at risk. The same goes for limes from Michoacan, sorghum from Tamaulipas, shrimp from Sinaloa. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Friday announced the inauguration of a new police unit intended to protect the production chain and take on other unorthodox assignments. Nieto said Friday that the new force will “serve and protect Mexicans in areas where it is needed, or where institutions are weak.”

Izvaryne, Ukraine - The West rebuked Russia for sending scores of trucks Friday from a controversial aid convoy to east Ukraine´s rebel-held Lugansk in a move Kiev decried as an "invasion." The European Union and the United States demanded that Russia immediately withdraw the convoy, amid fears the cargo could shore up pro-Moscow rebels fighting Kiev´s forces. (Snip) Some 280 trucks from the Russian convoy had been waiting at the border with Ukraine for a week as Moscow pressed for the aid to urgently be delivered to civilians in areas that have come under Ukrainian shelling. Russian President Vladimir Putin said further delay

Attorney general Eric Holder and Missouri Democratic leaders need to apologize to the law-enforcement community for impugning officers’ motives in light of the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., according to one prominent county sheriff. Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke, who gained notoriety last year for encouraging gun ownership within his Wisconsin community, said Holder, Governor Jay Nixon, and Senator Claire McCaskill made the situation in Ferguson worse with their “irresponsible, inflammatory” comments about the city’s police force and its supposed problem with race relations.

Jim Inhofe told the Fox-25 television in Oklahoma City. Inhofe, the ranking GOP member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, warned that leaders of ISIS ´are really bad terrorists.

Got milk? Get fingerprinted,

Carcass, Venezuela - Venezuelans could soon have to scan their fingerprints to buy bread. President Nicolas Maduro says a mandatory fingerprinting system is being implemented at grocery stores to combat food shortages by keeping people from buying too much of a single item. He calls it an "anti-fraud system" like the fingerprint scan the country uses for voting. In announcing the plan late Wednesday, Maduro did not say when the system would take effect, but other administration officials suggested it could be in place by December or January. The move was met with skepticism. Critics said the new system is tantamount to rationing

The White House upped the ante Friday on the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), declaring that the videotaped beheading of American photojournalist James Foley is ´a terrorist attack´--an admission that brought a stern ultimatum from a senior Republican in Congress. [Snip] ´That represents a terrorist attack against our country and against an American citizen.´ Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers, the Republican who chairs the powerful House Intelligence Committee, told MailOnline after the briefing that it´s time for President Barack Obama to get serious about eradicating ISIS--which half the American government refers to as ISIL--instead of merely keeping the

The White House on Friday rejected findings by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) that President Obama broke the law when he swapped Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders from Guantánamo Bay. "We strongly disagree with GAO´s conclusion, and we reject the implication that the administration acted unlawfully," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said. "The president has the constitutional responsibility to protect the lives of Americans abroad, and specifically to protect U.S. servicemembers." The GAO report, released Thursday, said the Pentagon violated a law that requires the administration to inform Congress at least 30 days before any prisoner

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) issued a subpoena Friday for White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, arguing he has not cooperated with a GOP probe of President Obama´s political office. Issa accused McDonough in a letter of failing to accept investigators´ "good faith" effort to address concerns about revealing privileged communications between Obama and his staff. "The White House has acknowledged that the dialogue has been constructive and that progress has been made. Unfortunately, these characterizations represent the total sum of what the White House has provided," Issa wrote

James Foley was singled out for the harshest treatment by his ISIS captors after they found pictures of his brother who serves in the U.S. Air Force on his laptop computer, fellow prisoners said on Thursday. He was regularly the victim of mock executions including once when he was ´crucified against a wall,´ said French journalist Didier Francois. Francois, 53, told Europe 1 Radio that the captors gave Foley rougher treatment from the rest of them because they discovered a picture of John Foley — the hostage´s 35-year-old officer brother — on his computer.

Democratic House Candidate John Foust attacked his female Republican opponent Barbara Comstock on Thursday, saying, “I don’t think she’s even had a real job.” “In her mind [creating jobs] means giving tax benefits to special interests and the super wealthy,” Foust said at an event in Leesburg, Va. “I don’t think she’s even had a real job.” The Comstock campaign pushed back on Foust’s “bizarre and sexist attack,” calling his comments offensive to working women, federal employees, and stay at home moms.

As of right now the support page for Police Officer Darren Wilson has raised over $190,000 and growing. People around the nation are awake to the propaganda within the culture of rabid hate within the professional grievance industry. People like Daryl Parks, Benjamin Crump and Al Sharpton can only exist within a system that allows them to rage against people for fallacious reasons. The constructs of hate are always manipulated by people who derive financial benefit and power from the targeting it creates as a specific consequence. Their latest chosen target is Police Officer Darren Wilson. But something is different this time,
