After Ferguson, critics lean on Holder
The Hill (Washington DC), by Peter Schroeder

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/28/2014 9:09:22 AM

Eric Holder´s Justice Department is coming under pressure to order sweeping changes to police operations in the United States. Civil rights and community groups, as well as some lawmakers, are pushing the attorney general to take action to address racial and social problems that they say were exposed by the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. “We’re at our zero moment as a nation,” said Maya Rockeymoore, president and CEO of the Center for Global Policy Solutions, a community-empowerment group. “If we continue to let this go unaddressed, we’re going to have Fergusons springing up all across the country.”

What do you suggest, Maya? That the police, when faced with a large thug regardless of race, just allow him to relieve the peace officer of his weapon and rampage the populace? Excellent plan, Maya; just tell me where you live so I can live many miles away.

Racial and social problems are created by blacks because they have created their own culture and their young are growing up like wolf cubs.
Self discipline, obedience, respect for authority, joy in learning, proper speech and grammar, belief in God are necessary to have a good life.

I have no problem with police fighting back against thugs. Why would you want to change that? You want the thugs to win?
The police are our first line of defense, the second line is ourselves.

In Ferguson black criminal attacks white cop, get´s shot.
In Sanford Fl black punk jumps white guy get´s shot.

Holder´s gotta do something about these whitey´s protecting themselves with guns. A little sensitivity training will be just the ticket.

Meanwhile in West Point Miss white marine beat into coma by 12 black guys cause he´s in the wrong restaurant. Hate crime? Holder? Eric? Where are you?

A. Obama, Holder, Jarrett and the rest of the WH racial posse will keep Ferguson alive as part of their "get out the minority vote" operation for 2014.

B. If local grand jury does note indict the police officer, expect Obama and Holder to address the nation the same day. TelePrompTers are already loaded with comments about Obama´s son, the plight of young black men (made worse by Obama´s open borders to Central American men) and how police departments should reflect the demographics of their communities (code for quotas).

C. If policeman is indicted, expect Holder to announce that DoJ will assist prosecutors to ensure "fair" trial that guarantees guilty verdict.

The next 3 months will be racially charged by Obama.

This is like asking John Dillinger to help revise the laws on bank robbery. As far as I can see, whatever happened or did not happen in Ferguson, Missouri will get my siding with the police until there is incontrovertible evidence showing wrongdoing on his part. And here´s why: Who would you call if you were in an endangered situation, the "gentle giant" or the cop? Enough said.

Michael Brown was shot and killed by a policeman whom he badly injured, and who then made efforts to arrest him. Brown then charged back toward the policeman who attempted to stop him with bullets in non-lethal areas. Finally he had to shoot to kill for self preservation. Where in that (witnessed) scenario is race a factor, or social problems evident? Divide and conquer is the topic of the day. Set the ethically different against each other is the agenda.
Will we stand for it is the question.

The only thing wrong with the shooting in Ferguson is that it took six shots to bring the elephant to the ground. They need to switch to 45s.

#9, it only took one shot to bring him down. The rest were misses. A .40 is very powerful.

At a Steak Fry in Iowa, the Clintons
Sell Their Brand of Sizzle
New York Times, by Jonathan Martin & Amy Chozick    Original Article

INDIANOLA, Iowa — It was a preview of coming distractions. When Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton decided to return to the state where her presidential ambitions first came undone six years ago, the idea was that they would remind Democratic activists about the importance of the midterm elections and honor their host, Senator Tom Harkin, Democrat of Iowa, who is retiring from Congress and held his final steak fry fund-raiser here Sunday. And that was what transpired, in part, on a sun-splashed day on a balloon field here, just south of Des Moines. But as is often the case wherever

Liberal comedienne and 9/11 truther Rosie O´Donnell insisted that her return to The View on Monday will feature more "objective" discussions. In an interview with Variety on Tuesday, she bashed previous co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. Variety writer Ramin Setoodeh relayed, "[O´Donnell] explains that the Hot Topics segment will include pre-taped newsy intros to catch viewers up on stories they might not be as familiar with." O´Donnell insisted, "In talk shows like ‘The View’ or ‘The Talk,’ sometimes the argument is over what the givens are...We’d like to first present an objective view of the situation."

Former President Bill Clinton railed against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday and framed the midterm elections as more broadly about defining “the terms in which we will relate to each other and relate to the rest of the world.” Speaking at Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-Iowa) annual steak fry fundraiser, Clinton said while much had improved in America, one problem still prevailed: “We don’t want to be around anyone that disagrees with us.” "We’ve got to pull this country together to push this country forward,” he went on to declare. Speaking directly after Hillary Clinton, the former president´s

Race for Iowa Senate seat is

Sioux City, Iowa -In a campaign so far defined by hogs and chickens, the race for the open Iowa Senate seat that most expected to fall to Democrats is now perhaps the closest in the country. And with the control of the Senate majority at stake in the upcoming election, Democrats are dispatching their biggest stars to help, starting Sunday with Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton. Democratic candidate Rep. Bruce Braley, a four-term congressman, was once the front-runner to succeed Democratic powerhouse Sen. Tom Harkin. But Braley has spent the last few weeks trying to regain the upper hand after some

BLOOMING GROVE, Pa.- A Pennsylvania state trooper who was injured when a gunman ambushed him and killed another trooper outside a police barracks is conscious and talking for the first time since he underwent surgery, a spokesman said Sunday. State police spokesman Trooper Tom Kelly said investigators hope to soon interview Trooper Alex Douglass to get additional information on the attack. The troopers were ambushed around 10:50 p.m. Friday as one of them was leaving the barracks and another was arriving. Cpl. Bryon Dickson of Dunmore was killed.

Germany will do all it can to fight anti-Semitism, Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a speech on Sunday, following a surge of abuse against Jews and spreading anti-Israeli sentiment aroused by the Gaza conflict. Merkel made her pledge to thousands at a landmark rally protesting a rise in anti-Semitism that authorities and Jewish leaders blame mainly on Muslim extremists and young immigrants, saying anyone who attacks Jews is attacking all of Germany. "That people in Germany are threatened and abused because of their Jewish appearance or their support for Israel is an outrageous scandal that we won´t accept," Merkel said. "It´s

The U.S. Senate´s 380-page handbook — which has never before been released to the public — has been made public for the first time. The book, which "governs everything from how many sheets of paper and potted plants each Senate office is allotted to when Senators can use taxpayer money to charter planes or boats," was made public Sunday by USA Today, which published nearly whole thing online. The newspaper is withholding 10 pages that pertain to Senate security issues. The book "contains detailed rules on how each senator can spend their official, multi-million-dollar, taxpayer-funded budget on things like meals

INDIANOLA, Iowa -- Hillary Clinton fanned the 2016 flames on Sunday, making her first return to the early caucus state since her 2008 presidential loss. As the former secretary of State took the stage at retiring Sen. Tom Harkin´s (D-Iowa) final steak fry, she told the crowd: "Hello Iowa-- I´m ba-ack!" Even though she was there to pay homage to the retiring Democrat and stump for the party´s candidates in the competitive state, Clinton cheekily acknowledged that another White House bid wasn´t far from her mind. "And then of course there´s that other thing,"she told a crowd that had chanted

Democrats routinely deride Republicans as extremists bent on coarsening the discourse. In January 2014, in the same interview in which he infamously claimed that ISIS was a “jayvee” team, President Obama blamed conservative media for polarizing the country: The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things we’ve put in place worked better than people

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — This struggling seaside gambling resort has been in the national news for all the wrong reasons lately: a rash of casino closings, thousands of unemployed workers, and a domestic violence case involving a former NFL star. But for three hours Sunday night, America will get a different look at Atlantic City. The Miss America pageant will present an upbeat view of the city where it began in 1921 and crown its next winner during a nationally televised finale. The show will feature iconic Atlantic City visuals including its beach, Boardwalk, the Steel Pier, Black Fish Pier

ATLANTA —Greg Norman is recovering from a chain saw accident that nearly cost him his left hand, but not his sense of humor. "At least I can still play tennis," Norman told The Associated Press by phone Sunday morning. Norman, the Hall of Fame golfer and entrepreneur, was cutting back trees in his South Florida home when the weight of a branch pulled his left hand toward the chain saw. He said the blade hit him just below where a person would be wearing a wrist watch. He said doctors told him it missed his artery by a fraction of

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may be headlining Sen. Tom Harkin´s annual Steak Fry today, but the longtime progressive senator indicated that shouldn´t be taken as an endorsement should she decide to run for president in 2016. Harkin, who is retiring after 30 years in the Senate and was hosting his last annual Steak Fry today, said progressives should raise questions about Clinton´s foreign policy and economic positions. "As someone who has carried the liberal, progressive populist banner for many years, we´re always nervous about people moving too far to the right," Harkin told ABC News´ Jonathan Karl for

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

She is building stamina through tough new workouts with a personal trainer and yoga. She is talking about how to address income inequality without alienating corporate America. And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle.

But inside the Clinton operation, the groundwork is already quietly being laid for a candidacy. On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton will appear at the 37th annual Iowa steak fry hosted by Senator Tom Harkin;

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
