Ferguson rioters harass, threaten reporters
Politico, by Byron Tau

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 8/16/2014 1:43:10 PM

FERGUSON, Missouri — Reporters trying to cover the renewed chaos in this town faced a new threat on Friday: the demonstrators themselves. Print, video and photo-journalists were all repeatedly and aggressively threatened and harassed when attempting to photograph or videotape any of the looting or property destruction. Many of the demonstrators expressed concern about being identified by police or told reporters that the looting was none of their concern. Police largely remained on the sidelines on Friday and into the dawn hours of Saturday morning as demonstrators descended on a number of businesses in Ferguson — pulling alcohol, lottery tickets, and

Just like in most perdomenently Black communities it looks like all the businesses, convenience and grocery stores, in Ferguson that interreact with the Black population are run by foreigners from the Middle East or Southwest Asia. Some of those businesses have been looted or burned down with the owners now guarding them armed with firearms.

One guy, a obvious foreigner, whose store was being looted last night said that he called the Ferguson police department for assistance and was told to call the St. Louis County police, who told him to call the Missouri State Highway Patrol. It look like all the booze in his store was stolen before any police arrived.

FTA - The Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery reported on Twitter that one looter “just threatened to pull knife” on him and other reporter outside a liquor store that was being cleaned of inventory.

One would think that Mr. Lowery is not welcome in Ferguson! Wonder if he would welcome the police escort in this situation? LOL!

This is what everyone KEEPS MISSING.

The big story here is not that the rioters are harassing people, it´s that the POLICE just stand off to the sidelines.

This is exactly what happened in the LA riots. My best friend is a cop, and used to work for a smaller city next to LA. He told me that LAPD likely told the officers that the problem was "too big" and to stand down unless there are gunshots, etc. In his town, the mayor and the police chief stated there would be no overflow looting from LA and all people breaking the law would be going to jail. They didn´t have an issues.

This should paint a clear picture for everyone. The police are NOT there to protect you. They are not going to go into dangerous situations. They are not firemen. They are there to pick up the pieces after the crime, or if lucky and a small scale, stop someone small before a crime. There are exceptions and levels of tolerance of course, but this is a nationwide problem.

If there is a major earthquake or disaster in your area, people WILL try to ransack your nice house and hurt you. It will happen. The only way to protect yourself is yourself. That means multiple firearms and lots of ammunition.

Take stuff like this as a warning. You don´t have to love in a bad neighborhood, the bad will come to you.

There´s millions of people in this country that are trigger happy to take matters in their own hands if Obama.Holder and the left continue to appease the worst people in this country and around the world.

The idea that people should be allowed to openly loot because of past grievances is a joke of a theory.

These rioters are mad at Obama more than anything else.He ran on wealth redistribution which is music to these people´s ears.Instead Obama has made the rich,uber rich,while everyone else´s standard of living has plunged 28%.

Instead of a booming economy to boost people´s income,he simply wants to steal it and shuffle it around that way.The people that have the spare money are Obama supporters and they´re not getting off it.

Watching press conference by leftist Democrats. Animals screaming at them wanting a lynching of anyone white.

These Democrat politicians act shocked--they created this cesspool of failed liberal social dysfunction when they destroyed the black family.

You did it--live with it now.

Sadly, those of who pay taxes and don´t commit crimes and steal votes will get the bill.

{Sigh....} Think back 10 years or so. How was your life? Were you upset about the war in Afghanistan and suddenly in Iraq too? Did loved ones in your family join up to go fight off the terrorists, so they wouldn´t come to our homeland? Were we not all brothers-in-arms, male-female, black-white-etc, older-younger....? Were American racial minorities even a smidgeon part of any angst you may have had?

How do you feel about racial minorities now?

Sometimes I feel like I´m being forced to transport back to a time I never lived in... a time I´m not sure ever even existed. Butt hose in charge of all our lives right now seem determined to undo everything good, and re-do it, their way, just so they can. No other good reason on earth. It´s like they regret not living through these things the first time - if there ever WAS a first time. If not, they´re creating it. Create the chaos, then decry it, then convince the fools that only they can fix it.

Liberal Left Democrat Progressive Fascist 101. I´ll just go to the range.

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

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.

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.

President Obama on Wednesday night outlined an open-ended campaign to combat the threat posed by the Islamic State, significantly expanding the counter­terrorism strategy that has been a hallmark of his presidency.Obama said in a prime-time speech televised from the White House that the United States will join “with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” using an alternative acronym for the group that has emerged in Iraq and Syria.Saying the United States is meeting the threat with “strength and resolve,” the president also sought to assuage the concerns of Americans who are

Americans overwhelmingly view Islamic State terrorists as a serious threat to vital U.S. interests and, in a significant shift, widely support airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.The nation’s increasingly hawkish mood will form part of the backdrop for a speech by President Obama on Wednesday, when he will outline his thinking on how to confront the threat from the Islamic State. Obama’s remarks will come a day after he confers with congressional leaders at the White House about the administration’s planning.Obama’s speech also comes at a critical moment in his presidency.

We know Derek Jeter by heart, so why all this memorizing? The between-pitches bat tucked up in his armpit. The fingertip helmet-twiddle. The left front foot wide open, out of the box until the last moment, and the cop-at-a-crossing right hand ritually lifted astern until the foot swings shut. That look of expectation, a little night-light gleam, under the helmet. The pitch—this one a slow breaking ball, a fraction low and outside—taken but inspected with a bending bow in its passage.

The United Nations Security Council met Thursday to discuss the Ukraine crisis for the 24th time this year, after reports indicated that Russian soldiers and weapons had crossed the border into eastern Ukraine to support insurgents there. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said that Russia is not pulling back in Ukraine as it has repeatedly promised to do. "Russia has come before UNSC to say everything except truth.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

[Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.
