A message to the people of Ferguson
Post-Dispatch [St. Louis, MO], by Eric H. Holder Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/19/2014 6:43:40 PM

Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened. Today, I will be in Ferguson to be briefed on the federal civil rights

Vigilante lynching, ghetto style. Holder clearly shows that the White House (0bama) verdict is in and it´s, "Guilty." Racist swine.

Based on the actions of the people of Ferguson one can only surmise that Brown was a thug since he comes from a community of thugs...

A message to Eric Holder:

The federal government has no business interfering with the situation in Ferguson. Simply by being there, you are showing extreme prejudice, and your words are making things worse.

I expect to see this happen all over America for the next three months. This is a way to rile up their base and to register voters. Who knows maybe if Obamas´ armys, The black panthers, acorn etc burn down America then Obama can declare martial law. Anyone who has been paying attention knew this would happen years ago.I don´t blame the poor blacks in these community´s, I blame the agitators the shyster lawyers that are being bused in. I also blame the media for their lying one sided reporting.

This is a big mistake on Holder´s part. He is leaving himself open, to looking like a fool and/or a racial bigot.

If a shot was fired off in the car, gunshot residue and a bullet hole will be found inside the car. The officer suffered a bad injury, from a blow to the eye. Worse yet (for Holder), witnesses are coming forward vouching for the officer´s actions.

Too many community organizers have already traveled to Ferguson. We don´t need any more to incite the rioters. Obama and Holder have said too much already.

I wonder if the Marine being held in that Mexican prison was black would he have been freed by now? Obama and Holder: Do your job and protect ALL Americans!!

I can hardly wait to see this Pathetic excuse of a Man Eric Holder brought to Justice by the American People. He is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with this Regime. Being black does not give him an excuse to ignore the rule of Law. And he and his Buddy Barry have grossly miscalculated the response that WE THE PEOPLE will inflict upon them . Once they are in OUR CUSTODY. This is not going to end well for a bunch of People who think they are immune from Justice. WE PROMISE!

And beyond the investigation itself, we will work with the police, civil rights leaders, and members of the public to ensure that this tragedy can give rise to new understanding — and robust action — aimed at bridging persistent gaps between law enforcement officials and the communities we serve.

FTA: Enforcement priorities and arrest patterns must not lead to disparate treatment under the law, even if such treatment is unintended. And police forces should reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.

Holder´s new favorite words "disparate treatment" which is used heavily by this DOJ and means "is when an individual of a protected group is shown to have been singled out and treated less favorably than others."

The former mayor of Ferguson was on Fox this morning and said they had asked for applications for black police officers and did not receive any. Could you visualize any of those thugs we have seen on TV as police officers?? I think not. They are so intent in diversifying everything without considering there aren´t any qualified minority individuals available.

Holder is Obama´s representative to the black community because Obama does not consider himself one of them and has no intention of finding himself in a photo op with racist thugs. Holder is racist enough for both of them and has never hid the fact. This is what comes of minorities trying to rule majorities.

Holder is a Race Merchant.
He only prosecutes white on black incidents.
But 80% of the killings are black on black and he does nothing while the black community kills and kills and kills and there is not even a peep about gun control.

Holder and Obama have destroyed Race Relations in Amerika and the Media stay silent!

#6 is spot on. Look for the regime to take every opportunity to get the lock-step Black vote motivated and turned out to vote in Nov. But I think they already suspect that Ferguson will not fulfill that promise of being a Black vote motivator. They can see this will be more of a Louis Gates dust-up situation where a good copy has been mistakenly maligned, this time by the media and the Governor. But it will take much more than a Beer Summit to smooth out this overwrought madness in Ferguson.

Read this article and tell me Holder hasn´t already decided how this will end. Just like in the Zimmerman case, the facts are strongly in favor of the shooter, but these race baiters will ignore. The narrative has been set. Just listen to Holder and the Missouri governor. As they say... The fix is in.

Absolutely, the fix is in on this. From the start the Dimocrat Governor and the DOJ decided the cop is guilty. Twelve witnesses is not enough to stop the DOJ, which sent agitators to start the riots (on our dime no less!). Holder must be impeached and jailed.

Doesn´t he get whiplash from all that whipping from one position to another? Rarely have I seen so much "on the one hand, this" and "on the other hand, that" waffling.

Although these acts have been committed by a very small minority — and, in many cases, by individuals from outside Ferguson — they seriously undermine, rather than advance, the cause of justice. And they interrupt the deeper conversation that the legitimate demonstrators are trying to advance.

"...deeper conversation"? What deeper conversation? And who is doing the conversing? Is this implication that there is persistent white-on-black racism in the police department? Gee, a black police officer in charge of TV statements on this killing and yet, there´s still institutionalized racism in the police dept?

At what point does the film of the robbery and the assault against the storekeeper, committed by the Gentle Giant, and the broken eye socket of the police officer who shot him indicate that GG wasn´t just a big, innocent teddy bear surrendering with his hands up?

Are we supposed to view this video of the robbery and dissociate it from GG´s behavior toward the police? See no evil?

Sorry, Eric, you can´t have it both ways: Either you instinctively believe the police are racists or you give them, not a thief and doper the benefit of the doubt.

Eric {CONTEMPT} Holder is the biggest RACIST going. This man´s DOJ only tends to the needs of minorities, so said by a DOJ Whistle Blower. What ever became of the civil rights case against the New Black Panthers that were interfering in the peoples voting rights in PA? Answer-NOTHING with no explanation. How about when Eric worked for Bubba under AG Janet Reno he helped pardon Marc Rich & the FALN gang of murderers. This is what we are dealing with and he supposed to be the top cop of the USA>

I´m guessing there is a pattern here. Think about it, our soldiers cannot be armed. Maybe the administration is looking to disarm our police. Mentally and physically. Isn´t that the basic message coming out of Ferguson - we can´t trust the police? This administration is floating between community organizing and backing up the police force. Like everything Obama has done, he is "present" on this one.

FTA: at the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers..no its a demand for the white policeman to be prosecuted..heck with the facts...even the democrat governor has demanded the policeman be prosecuted. If I were a policeman, I would never go near the neighborhood this happened in.let those people defend themselves.
notice how fast obama and holder can re-act to this shooting, but cannot make a phone call to close the borders.

But upon reflection, I don´t think the "H-O-MO Riots" would fly.

From what I have read since the so called disturbances started most of the people arrested during the rioting are from out of town. Not only that, but agitators are wearing facial coverings with a preprinted statement that says... ´no justice, no peace´.

This isn´t an incidental riot, but something preplanned for when the circumstances arise. I suspect that Ferguson is a victim of a planned assault. It isn´t incidental that ISIS signs suddenly pop up. On top of that, Holder is a worthless accessory.

Chances are the liberal Democrats are going to be out there without any clothes as they go about pushing their anti law enforcement liberal agenda, as this matter goes forth in the criminal justice system. There is no doubt that big Mike was the aggressor and a bully from the time he perpetrated a strong armed robbery and ten minutes later assaulted a police officer causing the officer to sustain a serious injury to his eye socket.

Chances are the officer could not even see out of that eye or had double vision at the time big Mike bull rushed him as the fatal shots were fired that brought big Mike down in front of the officer. Since an officer always has the right to protect himself from serious bodily injury or death in the line of duty, when all the evidence comes out, and if liberal Democrat politics does not corrupt and undermine the grand jury process, this officer should not be indicted.

Violence, felonious behavior, looting, rioting, and 72% bastid out-of-wedlock births......

Quite a legacy, quite a "race" of people that we are supposed to have "race relations" with....

Throw in Holder, Obama-Hussein, Sharpton, and Jesse and Sheila Jackson, and what have you got?

T--H--U--G--S--!!!

Throw in the corrupt media liars and you´ve got this current false portrayal playing out all across America, as they continue to hide the fact that Officer Wilson´s eye was fractured!!! Liars!! I want ALL the media put on trial! Alongside Holder and Obama!

Code Pink to exploit Ferguson “Weekend

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests. Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.” More ominously, Medea Benjamin, the leader of Code Pink, just attended a gathering of anti-Israel groups, including notorious anti-Semites, in Tehran, as reported by Buzzfeed: A number of American and European antiwar activists and conspiracy theorists have gathered in Tehran for a conference aimed at addressing supposed Zionist control of the

Obama Factor in 2014
Vote Similar to 2010
Gallup Politics, by Jeffrey M. Jones    Original Article

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

You Want Executive Action?
Here’s Some Executive Action

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

How Ebola Compares to

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

How Many U.S. Cities Need An Ebola Case

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Cut off Mumia’s microphone

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

Dereliction of duty: Obama

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only

Imagine if you downloaded something that ended up wiping out all the information you needed before meeting with an IRS agent asking about discrepancies on your tax return. How sympathetic do you think that IRS agent would be? But when it comes to the IRS itself, this is just what officials would have us believe. Turns out too it’s not just Lois Lerner, whose computer crashed right after Congress asked for info about the tax targeting of conservative organizations. Now we’re learning of another case where hard drives holding information that would help tell us what the IRS was up to have

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo and a top aide resigned Thursday over revelations that they were among dozens of state officials who sent or received pornographic e-mails over state computers. In a letter to Gov. Corbett, Abruzzo said he had not been able to review the explicit messages he allegedly sent or received, but said he accepted responsibility for "any lack of judgment" he may have exhibited. He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam. The UK Daily Mail reported Tuesday that “while the

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
