White House “Did Not Know” National
Guard Was Being Deployed In Ferguson

BuzzFeed News, by Evan McMorris-Santoro

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 8/18/2014 11:11:20 AM

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon called the National Guard to Ferguson late Sunday without letting the White House know first. “Folks didn’t know,” an administration official told BuzzFeed Monday. “The White House did not know they were sending it in.” Nixon gave “no heads up,” the official said. President Obama is back at the White House today on a pre-scheduled break from his August vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. He’s scheduled to be briefed by Attorney General Eric Holder on the situation in Ferguson early this afternoon. Holder and the administration have been critical of the militarized response to protests in Ferguson.

Comments:
That is pretty much all there is to this article so far. My guess is that Obama will find out about this "stupid stuff" in the news.

Do they know anything? Do they even know what month or day of the week it is? The only thing they seem to know is the web site hotels.com for vacation planning. Their level of disengagement is beyond belief. Unfortunately it´s all too true much to our dismay. Idiots.

It would be nice for the governor to tell the president he was calling out the Guard, but it that a requirement?

I don´t think so.

The National Guards of the various states belong to their states unless federalized.

More anti-Ferguson propaganda.

If I had the misfortune to be on that police force, I would resign. Imagine if all the white officers resigned - including that inept chief - and left Ferguson to the fewer black officers to manage.

And then the minority population - the whites - should move out.

Turn Ferguson into a real ghetto and let the blacks deal with it. Abandon it.

Re #6, there has been steady white flight from Ferguson for since 1990, when 73.8% of the population was white.

By the 2010 census, 29.3% were White and 67.4% were black. The whole population is only 21,111 as of last year.

OK. They want it? They can have it.

Better to keep your mouth shut about your cluelessness than to open it and remove all doubt. Doesn´t Barky get a newspaper out there at the Vineyard?

These days I live in a state of almost continual amazement, bedazzled by the things progressives believe. Earlier this week the New York Times had to print a correction which is probably the number one all time winner in a long line of their recent corrections: “Correction: September 8, 2014 An earlier version of a summary that appeared with this article misstated the former title of Dick Cheney. He was vice president, not president.” Seriously, someone was hired to and does write for the major progressive publication in America who thought that Dick Cheney had been our president.

A new poll from Gallup has found that Republican voters think the immigration woe facing America is the most important issue in the country. Of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters, the Gallup poll found that 22 percent believe immigration is the “most important problem” in America. Republicans rank the issue as more important than dysfunctional government, the economy, unemployment and healthcare—for which 20 percent, 17 percent, 12 percent, and 9 percent, respectively, said it was the most important.

A new report released by New Jersey authorities shows that taxpayers are being socked with a $6.5 million legal bill in part for Gov. Chris Christie´s (R) defense over allegations of political corruption in what came to be known as the "Bridgegate" probe. The New Jersey state attorney general released the documents on Friday, revealing the fees from Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, the firm Gov. Christie retained for his defense against charges of political corruption for the temporary shutting down of the George Washington Bridge near Fort Lee, New Jersey in September of 2013.

Hamas reportedly rejected a comprehensive, 11-clause long term ceasefire proposal on Saturday. Egypt has warned that this proposal will be its final effort to secure a lasting end to the Israel-Gaza conflict. According to details leaked by Egyptian newspaper al-Shorouk, the 11-clause proposal contained several key concessions to the Palestinian delegation, including the opening of border crossings between Israel and Gaza, the elimination of the so-called "buffer zones" along the Israel-Gaza border, the extension of the fishing zone to 12 miles off the Gazan coast, and the assistance of Israel and the Palestinian Authority in rebuilding the

President Obama´s Goldilocks
Mideast Policy

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is too strong. PLO boss Mahmoud Abbas is too weak. That’s why we can’t get a peaceful settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict, says President Obama in an interview with the ever-serious Tom Friedman of the New York Times. The president seems to be confusing Mideast politics with Goldilocks. The peace porridge is too hot (Netanyahu). It’s too cold (Mahmoud Abbas). But with Mr. Obama’s Goldilocks policy, it’s just right. Actually, his Mideast isn’t just right. It’s mostly wrong. Mr. Obama’s thinking about the Mideast is fully on display in this disturbing interview. If we wonder why

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. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. 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´.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

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.

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

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

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
