Obama speaks about shooting of
Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

Washington Post, by William Branigin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/14/2014 1:22:36 PM

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

So the police aren´t to use excessive force even if they feel their lives are endangered? Of course the political hack Obama didn´t forcefully call for the violence to stop. He and Holder are getting just what they want and encourage. The code words “to see that justice is done” were heard loud and clear.

His lack of enthusiasm for dabbling in racial issues again is starting to tell. He looks odd...strange mixture of tired and anger and personal nervousness. I sincerely hope the job is starting to eat his insides out.

I saw a disturbing picture of what may have been Mike Brown. It did not mean he should have been killed, but the Martin Narrative of image control is out there. I am not clear what happened, but this is tragic on many fronts.

Probably a good thing he chimed in about events of Ferguson, Missouri. If cops are bad, go after them. But . . . how about commenting on the dead General in Afghanistan, how about the prisoner/marine being held in Mexico? I could go on, but perhaps this guy isn´t the one he preached about during campaining . . . such as President for "ALL" the people. Obama is divider, not a uniter!

The money line is "“there is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting.”

There is ample EVIDENCE of lawless violence, vandalism and looting by blacks in Ferguson. Obama should call on his black brothers to obey the laws and call on Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to follow his example in the future by butting out and letting local officials handle local issues.

When his handlers told him that he had to make this speech today, don´t you know he had a hissy fit.

He is on vacation, and having to make a speech takes him away from valuable golf time after all.

Heard the police chief of Milwaukee on Fox this morning. Since we are required to filter everything through a racial prism I should say the black police chief. Big 2nd amendment guy but asked to comment on this situation he gave the standard race based analysis on how a mostly white police force doesn´t represent a 70% black community. Why don´t they just release the cops name so the mob can lynch him and get it over with....another form of reparations don´t you know...

If you listened closely a lot of what you heard was about Obama, obviously it was not necessary for Omaha to tell the Dept of Justice and the FBI that he was sending them there to find out what went on, as they conduct those types of investigations all the time.

“When something like this happens, local authorities, including the police, have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death,” Obama said.

Talk about calling the kettle black, so to speak. Look at the transparency of the Obama Administration and Obama´s words make one puke at the hypocrisy Obama spoke here?

I don´t recall Obama saying anything when that young mother was shot and killed by DC police. She had two young children in the car with her. There were no riots or race hustlers around. That was kind of hushed up and we never really heard much about why it happened or how. Hmmmmmm.

I will probably get slammed by some of my fellow LDotters for my comments but here they are. I don´t believe for one minute that this teenager put his hands in the air and the cop opened fire on him unless the cop is a total whack job in which case he needs to go to prison. None of us know at this point what the heck happened so we should withhold judgement. Having said that, of course the police have the right to defend themselves but in the news they frankly look like jack-booted thugs who have fantasies of being some kind of Special Forces. The militarization of the police is starting to give me chills and we should be keeping a sharp eye on them. We could be their next targets at a peaceful Tea Party rally. Lastly, if Michael Brown had been shot by a black guy it wouldn´t even show up on the last page of the paper. These protestors are not looking for justice. They are theives.

Obama has no idea what occurred during this incident and neither does anyone else. As usual, the CrapMedia inflames the situation along with the presence of Sharpton.

Perhaps this could be a ´teachable´ moment as Obama was so fond of saying 5 years ago. Our public schools could help out by having a mandatory class to teach kids how to behave when having to interact with police officers, in general. For example, if you are stopped driving a vehicle, keep both hands on the steering wheel until the officer gets to your window an if you have to reach into something to retrieve your license/reg, then ask permission so the officer knows what you are about to do. Follow directions and do not be confrontational. As with all things in life, attitude is e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Did Michael Brown get shot repeatedly as he ran away, empty-handed?

If this is so, it is easy to understand why the cop has not been ID´d, as he would get the street justice that is coming to him, long before his trial and guilty verdict.

Police protocol does not call for the emptying of the weapon at a fleeing, unarmed perp, even if the perp tried to wrestle away the cop´s weapon before fleeing empty-handed.

We need fewer hotheads on police forces. The hotheads should be culled before they murder.

We need more arrests of street-agitating lowlife calling for resisting arrest and killing the cops, whose jobs are highly stressful and dangerous.

None of us know what happened.

This is a normal race-baiting tactic to throw all sorts of accusations out there that the brain dead public believes are "facts". No matter how they are refuted later by the real facts, people with an agenda will continue to believe the BS that is thrown out early in the story.

Just like with any other shooting, everyone needs to remain calm until this is thoroughly investigated. Then everyone needs to remain calm if/when there is a trial and verdict. That is what civilized people do, though clearly the people causing all the destruction and looting there long ago lost any pretense of being civilized...

FTA: ´´...Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week.´´

Let the lefty media´s Trayvon-like canonization of Michael Brown begin. Can we find a photo of Michael when he was a cute 14 year old and use that?

It´s a particular fetish of the left news media to put forward a fable version of who the perps WERE, not so much the precise conditions and actions of the situation at issue. i.e. Here´s the shiny object of Michael´s promising life, don´t dwell on what he actually did, like go after a cop and his gun in the cop´s car.

I am so sick of our president sticking his nose into anything concerning a black person and the allegedly mistreatment of one.
If President Bush had commented on every black on white crime that occurred, he´d never get anything else done. Read the papers or surf the net on any given day and it´s knock out whites, shoot babies in the face, robbing & looting and in general acting like the savages they are. On top of that, Obama said nothing about all the looting & destruction committed in the name of justice.

What a flat, up impassioned delivery! He was obviously whizzed off to be dragged into doing his job in the first instance. He needs to go to Iraq himself and see how dayum safe it is today!
In the second, he should butt out and tell the stooges JJ and Sharpton to stop ginning up the black populace.
Gov. Nixon (D) gave the same type of talk a bit ago, sped thru as though he was late for a more important event, and introduced the others. All show, no substance.

While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process.

Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God. The phrase "the banality of evil" gets bandied about a

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

Breitbart Texas made several queries to Governor Perry´s press office for comment, but as of press time,

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email. The idea is to use the muscle of the
