How the media discovered Ferguson
Politico, by Byron Tau

Posted By:FlyRight, 8/16/2014 7:45:03 AM

Ferguson, Mo. — Score one for the Beltway media. After several nights of intense community outrage over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, it wasn’t until two Washington-based reporters from The Huffington Post and The Washington Post were arrested by heavily armed local police that the political class in D.C. and Jefferson City started paying attention. Days of Twitter dispatches and Instagram videos from the protesters themselves had done little to change police behavior. But Wednesday night, tweets and stories about the arrests of Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery and Huffington Post reporter Wesley Lowery

Since the first 2 sentences are blatant lies, I see no need to read further.

I’m surprised they aren’t using an 8th grade school photo!

Bottom line, if Michael Brown had not robbed a convenience store and acted like a jackass by walking in the middle of the street, none of this would have happened. All the locals could see was a brother doing what brothers do and a racist cop shot him. There was absolutely no excuse for days of rioting and thievery. Pardon the racist overtone but those people acted like a pod of monkeys, one gets agitated and pretty soon the whole group is jumping around and howling.

I wonder what the "body count" will be this weekend in Chicago? If it remains the same, there will be about 5 or 10 dead "children" under 21 killed by their own, and about 20 "wounded". I´m sure "stupido-politico-reporters" are on the way there right now to once again cover this horrendous crime against humanity, even though there are no Police officers involved!.....What´s that?.........never mind....

There are two majority types of African Americans. One, the Brown type who robbed a store and shoved the small old owner. This one is the black thug. The other type is African American Tim Scott who studied hard, didn´t steal do drugs, worked hard and became a US Senator

Media malfeasance is stunning. Thug Michael Brown was stealing tipped cigars to make blunts--dope. And thug Trayvon was buying Skittles and the flavored ´tea´ to make a drug concoction as well.

The media knows this, but refuses to report it.

I´m not sure I´m allowed to mention other sites, if not, I apologize.
Having said that I cannot recommend strongly enough to, right after perusing Lucianne, go to the theconservative treehouse, particularly ´sundance´s´ entries. I started reading from the site at the beginning of the Zimmerman lynching and continue to be in awe of the investigations done there.

#4, I saw a photo of Brown´s father yesterday and in it he was wearing a tee shirt with a photo of little Mikey as a toddler. I´m sure that Trayvon´s lawyer told him to have the shirt made and wear it at all public appearances.

A thug is a thug and a thief is a thief! Who doesn´t recognize exactly what they are by their own choice of irresponsible actions?
...And the Law is the Law, but when everyone is not held EQUALLY accountable to the Rule of Law, chaos results. Property is destroyed and people are hurt when those responsible for maintaining & upholding the Law simply stand aside and ignore such resulting LAWLESS rampages. Night after night, Gov. Nixon!

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

So this was the way it had to end for Derek Jeter at Yankee Stadium, with him turning a lost season for the Yankees and a lost September into a great October night out of the past, even the World Series night once when he won a game for the Yankees and they called him Mr. November. It was a single this time past first base against the Orioles in the bottom of the ninth, and it won the last game of baseball he will ever play at Yankee Stadium, and in that moment he gave them what they wanted

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) on Thursday said he´s not interested in replacing Eric Holder as attorney general.Patrick said the job is an "enormously important one," but "it´s not one for me right now," according to the New England Cable News Network. The comments came at an event in Hudson, Mass. Patrick served as the head of the Department of Justice´s civil rights division under President Bill Clinton and has long been talked about as a possible replacement for Holder. He is a friend of President Obama. Patrick´s public schedule says that he is traveling to Washington on Thursday. The reason is

WASHINGTON — The vast majority of airstrikes launched against Sunni militant targets in Syria have been carried out by American war planes and ship-based Tomahawk cruise missiles, military officials said Tuesday, in what they described as the successful beginning of a long campaign to degrade and destroy the Islamic State.In disclosing the identities of the five Sunni Arab nations that joined or supported the attacks in Syria — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan and Qatar — the Obama administration sought to paint a picture of an international coalition resolute in its determination to take on the Sunni

President Barack Obama decided long ago that he was no fan of female congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), and now the male dominated White House is doing all it can to crush her political career.The White House let loose on Wasserman Schultz in a lengthy Politico article that labeled her a “liability” for the Democratic Party who cares more about her “own political ambitions than helping Democrats win.” Those political ambitions have been dashed after the White House leaked details of its battle with the DNC chairwoman. The White House has long been known as a hostile place for women,

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

Posted By: Flyright- 9/12/2014 7:41:48 AM     Post Reply
Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Some Capitol Hill lawmakers are baffled. What does President Obama want from Congress as he begins the U.S. military escalation in Iraq and Syria? The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

Obama’s Three Fatal ISIS Delusions

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
