Michael Brown´s Grandfather to Obama:
´I Voted for You,´ So Come Meet Me

Breitbart Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/19/2014 9:48:00 AM

President Obama has become notorious among his Missouri supporters for not visiting the embattled city, and the grandfather of the teen shot by police there a week ago is perturbed over the President´s distance. This week he went on TV to remind Obama he voted for him and urge the President to make his way to Ferguson to stand with his family. In an appearance on MSNBC, Michael Brown´s grandfather, Lesley McSpadden, insisted that it was time for "my President to step forward" and take action in Ferguson. With the rest of the Brown family, McSpadden has spent the week

Of course grandpa did. As did all of the 73% or so of Ferguson that is black, and probably a fair share of the whites. I wouldn´t be surprised to hear that Officer Wilson voted for Obie.

They are finding out that that doesn´t get them much. Talk. Talk. More talk. Platitudes. Lies. Talk.

Remember that everything coming out of the Brown family is being choreographed and scripted by evil lawyer Crump.

If the investigation doesn´t go sour, it will be hard for Crump to prevail when his "victim", a huge hulking man, assaulted a cop after committing a strongarm robbery and got himself shot while charging that cop.

Crump et al are trying to narrow it down to: Unarmed teenager Brown was shot by a cop while walking down the street.

We need to keep our eye on what the OTHER side is saying. And not allow ourselves to be derailed.

I want to know what other drugs were in Brown´s system at the time of death.
I smelled a lie of ommission from the Dr. who did the autopsy. So, he admitted to pot...but what else?

Statement from the POTUS:

"Mr. McSpadden, thank you for your vote, now, if you don´t mind, I´m busy drafting an executive order to boost future democrat voter rolls since the black community, thanks to my anti-life policies, is rapidly diminishing in numbers and therefore, won´t be able to swing or impact future elections."

Did Gramps not ever tell young Michael that nothing good ever happens from bum-rushing a police officer and trying to relieve him of his weapon?

HOUSTON, Texas -- The ambulance crew that transported America’s first Ebola patient to the hospital has been placed in quarantine as a precaution. The quarantine is a precaution to make certain no one else is exposed in the event the crew became infected during transportation of the patient. The city of Dallas said the crew took all safety precautions during the transport process. “Our firefighters are in quarantine,” said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings in an interview with NBC 5 in Dallas “that took this guy to the hospital.” “We will place them into isolation per Dallas County and CDC recommendations,”

Will George Clooney be

(Video) The chances George Clooney becomes president of the United States may be small, but they are growing. William Hill, the world’s biggest bookmaker headquartered in London, has halved the odds of the star actor becoming U.S. president in his lifetime, from 200/1 to 100/1. The change comes following hints made by family members that he and new wife Amal Alamuddin, a London-based lawyer, activist and author, have political ambitions. Clooney is now at 20/1 odds that he’ll join the 2016 presidential race, with a 500/1 chance he’ll win it. By comparison, Democrat Hillary Clinton is the favorite at 5/4

The newsroom of the New York Times will absorb a cut of 100 newsroom jobs through a buyout program, though the company will resort to layoffs, if necessary, according to memos from top executives at the paper. The cutbacks will also affect other areas of the Times. “We are reducing the cost base of the company to safeguard the long-term profitability of The Times, not because of any short-term business difficulties,” reads the memo from Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and CEO Mark Thompson. A separate message from Executive Editor Dean Baquet laid out the impact on the news operation: “So,

The GOP´s Senate fortunes seem to have taken a step forward over the last week or so, with polling showing Republicans leading in eight contests over Democrat-held seats (AK, AR, CO, IA, LA, MT, SD, WV) -- and within striking distance in three more races (MI, NC, NH). The party must gain six net seats in November to demote Harry Reid and reclaim the upper chamber majority. But one match-up in the heartland is giving Republicans unexpected heartburn. Voters in Kansas -- a state Mitt Romney carried 60-38 over President Obama in 2012 -- are flirting with the idea of

Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi has been jailed in a Mexican prison for the past nine months for accidentally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border with several firearms. Since his arrest, the “big three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) networks have barely covered his story on their morning or evening newscasts despite the numerous efforts by the public to get him freed. On Wednesday, Sergeant Tahmooressi´s mother appeared before a House committee asking Congress to support a resolution calling for her son’s safe return to the United State and unsurprisingly all three network morning newscasts ignored her upcoming testimony on Capitol Hill.

"Have you tried the new watermelon flavored toothpaste?" reads the speech bubble in today´s Boston Herald cartoon depicting last week´s White House intruder and a perturbed President Obama. The internet, however, is not laughing, with the toon drawing allegations of racism since its publication. The Herald´s racial stereotype gaffe comes to us from cartoonish Jerry Holbert, who appears to be poking fun at Army veteran Omar Gonzalez´s intrusion into the White House last week, which got him all the way to the East Room before an off-duty security guard caught him in the act. Admittedly a funny situation, but some—including

WASHINGTON — President Obama must be touched by all the concern Republicans are showing him these days. As Congress examines security breaches at the White House, even opposition lawmakers who have spent the last six years fighting his every initiative have expressed deep worry for his security. “The American people want to know: Is the president safe?” Representative Darrell Issa of California, the Republican committee chairman who has made it his mission to investigate all sorts of Obama administration missteps, solemnly intoned as he opened a hearing into the lapses on Tuesday.

Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson said there is one particular contact of the patient who he fears may have Ebola. "Let me be real frank to the Dallas County residents: the fact that we have one confirmed case, there may be another case that is a close associate with this particular patient," Thompson said Wednesday morning in an interview with local ABC affiliate WFAA.

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

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

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

Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

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.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman.

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,
