In the aftermath of the Ferguson riots in Missouri and the Freddie Gray fiasco in Baltimore, the decriminalization of crime in the name of "social justice" -- long a goal of the cultural-Marxist Left -- got fully underway. The result was exactly what anyone not fully invested in Critical Theory would have expected: "Calling violence in Baltimore “out of control,” Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered 30 agency heads to meet every morning at police headquarters, and to make crime reduction the top mission not only of police, but also of health workers, housing officials and public works crews. The mayor ordered the directors
Baltimore - a cautionary tale. "...a prime example of what happens when citizens are categorized by skin color or cultural background, and then have differing standards of behavior applied to them by what should be an impartial justice system."
70% of black kids are born with no fathers around by women who had no fathers around and who´s mothers had no fathers around....and on it goes. Your no going to fix anything till these communities and people take responsibility for their own plight.
Conservatives are out trying to get the government off our backs so we can manage our own lives: get jobs, get out of debt, empower ourselves, choose whats best for our communities, etc.
Liberals are just the opposite, they seem to strive for more government to keep people like blacks held as slaves.
One system seems to work and the other doesn´t. Which one would a logical person choose for the best chance at a functional life?
#2, "70% of black kids are born with no fathers around by women who had no fathers around and who´s mothers had no fathers around....and on it goes. Your no going to fix anything till these communities and people take responsibility for their own plight." AND you´re not going to fix anything as long as WTP are forced to pay/reward the bebe mamas to keep having fatherless kids.
How do you take a "teen" thug off the street if every time you arrest him or her, the judges keep letting them go? You can´t. These ´sons of Obama" have the number of the authorities and know there will be no repercussions of any significant nature for their violent, destructive behavior.
Here is why they do that- It´s the same reason the media and city officials call them "teens". The city officials and media would rather see a city hurled back into the stone age than have to face the fact that they are involved in a deep racial war the likes of which they have never seen. That Freddy Gray crap of the City attacking the cops rather than face the problem of black violence and deviant behavior head on. Quit calling these monsters "teens". Face it! these are murder minded little black punks who have a deep attitude of black entitlement. You people made them yourself. You developed the same attitude as you grew up. These "teens" are merely reflecting your own attitude and now you are being forced to live with the consequences of it.
Deal with them without your racial bias and your problem will quickly vanish.
Marxists have never had a problem sacrificing the lives of others to further their cause.
It is a necessary part of the Revolution.
NFL take notice! It´s your brothers who are being annihilated at the hands of other brothers. You might want to re-think your social justice platform because when street justice overtakes legitimate justice, many, many more will die needlessly. Just saying...
FTA...And she extended night and weekend hours at six recreation centers to try to keep young people out of harm’s way.
Midnight basketball anyone? Because it worked so well back in the 90’s.
Instead try this - support your police and don’t drive them into court on firvolous charges. Quit giving the thugs “space to destroy”. Arrest the thugs and keep them in jail - no bail. And that includes the “teens”. It would be a start.
Our (Democrat controlled for 50 years)inner cities have a 74% illegitimacy rate. Across America, these cities have millions of fatherless homes. Coming from a fatherless home is the number one cause of juvenile delinquency. Were government willing to produce honest statistics, we would probably discover what goodly percentage of inner city children are likely to end up on the wrong side of the law. With the terrible inner city schools, the Democrats´ drumbeat teaching their followers to hate Republicans, you can´t really blame the people for not knowing the truth, but you sure can blame the SJW media, who allow the Democrat political leaders (like John Lewis and Maxine Waters and Frederica Wilson) to exploit their constituents and do their terrible damage generation after generation. The media promotes these "leaders" and covers up the truth about who are the real bad guys (and it sure isn´t the Republicans).
On the morning of Oct. 1, 2015, a middle-aged telemarketer arrived at the Washington headquarters of the Federal Trade Commission. His name was Aaron Michael Jones, or possibly Michael Aaron Jones, and in any case, he went by Mike. According to court documents, Mike was a father and widower. He lived well, paying $25,000 a month for a Spanish Colonial Revival in a gated community near Laguna Beach, Calif. He also employed a personal chef, drove a couple of Mercedes, and maintained a gambling account at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Jones sustained his lifestyle by spamming people with robo-calls. He
PORT RICHEY — One of the 50 passengers who had to jump off of a burning boat and into frigid waters on Sunday has died, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. Meanwhile the Coast Guard on Monday morning started investigating the gutted vessel as it sat in the muck off the coast of Pasco County. The 42-year-old woman was not identified. She was pronounced dead at 10:42 p.m. Sunday night, deputies said, while being treated for her injuries at Bayonet Point Regional Medical Center. The hospital staff reported her death to the Sheriff’s Office at about 1 a.m. Monday. Deputies did
ABC Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stepped up the liberal media’s condemnation of President Trump during Sunday’s This Week by heinously exploiting the heroic death of a U.S. soldier to take a snide shot at the President for his recent immigration comments. As he was wrapping up the show, Stephanopoulos drew attention to the death of Private Emmanuel Mensah. Private Mensah was an immigrant from Ghana who sacrificed himself to save several others from a fire that was consuming the apartment building he was staying at with family while he was on leave. “Finally this week, in that now infamous oval
OPRAH FOR PRESIDENT! Oprah Winfrey is loved across the globe for being the fattest black female billionaire in world history, and for that, she deserves to be worshiped! Most people know her for making film history after becoming the first female African American thespian to pee for ten minutes straight on film in Steven Spielberg’s heartwarming racial/gender drama The Color Purple. Sure, even after America rewarded her with enough wealth to buy several African countries in addition to a lifetime Weight Watchers membership, she still feels fit to lie and say that millions of black Americans were lynched (actually, the best estimate
We may have been the first to expose the Democracy Alliance, back in 2014. The Democracy Alliance is a shadowy group of far-left money men who organize their efforts to try to radically transform American society through left-wing organizations of various kinds. The Democracy Alliance rates such groups and encourages its far-left donors to support those who rate the highest, and it attempts to coordinate the efforts to transform America that are carried out by elements of the far left. Last November, Paul commented on the fact that a Washington Post reporter, Janell Ross–her beat is “race”–spoke at a secret Democracy
We have followed recent events in Wisconsin’s scandalous John Doe investigation of Governor Walker’s allies and supporters here (also citing background on the scandal) and here. State senator Tom Tiffany then updated us on the scandal’s aftermath. Now Senator Tiffany has directed our attention to Matt Kittle’s current MacIver Institute report “In John Doe’s shadow: Showdown looms in bitter battle over bureaucrats’ jobs.” Senator Tiffany has also forwarded Deborah Hawley Jordahl’s column commenting on current developments. Ms. Jordahl was herself a victim of the secret John Doe investigation. Her home was searched and turned upside down in a pre-dawn raid by
The biggest scandal of our time is the manner in which the Democratic Party, under Barack Obama, weaponized the intelligence agencies and the FBI for political purposes. An obscure news story–obscure but for the fact that it was linked by Drudge–suggests that the CIA may have used entertainment personalities to smear Donald Trump shortly after his inauguration. The story relates to Moby, who I take it is an entertainer of some sort. (Snip) Moby could be lying, of course. There is a lot of that going on these days. But if he is telling the truth, the matter could hardly
TAMPA — Kenneth Spain told his students at Chamberlain High School that he overcame a pornography addiction when he found Jesus. Pornography and Jesus are both taboo topics for public school teachers, so this became a case for the Hillsborough County school district’s professional standards office. Spain resigned. He asked if he could return as a substitute. A letter in his file said not just yet. But Kelly Educational Staffing hired him anyway and sent him to work at Greco Middle School. Kelly — contracted by the district since 2014 — fills more than 170,000 shifts each year when teachers are absent or on
Walt Blenner is a Tampa Bay personal injury lawyer who also does some estate planning and recently fell into a niche of representing lottery winners. About three years ago, Blenner helped a man who won a $3 million scratch-off secure his newfound wealth. He’s also written blog posts on his law firm website, providing guidance to lottery winners, and has consulted with several of them on the phone. Then came Shane Missler, the 20-year-old Port Richey man who claimed the $450 million Mega Millions jackpot on Friday. Among the advice Blenner has told his new client so far: "Your old life is
A Tampa lawyer was among three men arrested Wednesday by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office on cocaine trafficking charges. Robert Carr, 66, whose firm is the Resolute Law Group at 808 W Waters Ave., faces felony charges of cocaine trafficking, conspiracy to traffic cocaine and possession of a vehicle knowingly used to traffic cocaine. Brandon Byars, 37, of Tampa and Logan Sebring, 24, of Bayonet Point were also arrested and face drug trafficking charges. On Jan. 10, an undercover detective with the High Intensity Drug Trafficking task force arranged to meet with Byars for a drug deal ranging from 1 to 4 kilos
WEEKI WACHEE — At 7 a.m. on Saturday, Lydia Byrd texted her aunt Mista Whitson, "You guys awake?" Byrd, 22, was ready. The North Carolina natives flew to Florida for one reason: to watch Byrd try and become a Weeki Wachee mermaid. "She has wanted to be a mermaid her whole life," Whitson laughed. "This is about as close as she can get." Byrd was among dozens of women who braved the cold Saturday for the first part of tryouts for the world-famous mermaid squad at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park. This year, officials said the park had its highest number of people sign up
In 1938, so the story goes, America nearly scared itself to death when "the Mercury Theatre on the Air enacted a Martian invasion of Earth". Orson Welles´ radio play took the form of simulated news bulletins, but its content provoked mass hysteria. Mass hysteria is not a thing of the past and there have been numerous outbreaks since all the way into the 21st century. In 2016 an epidemic of hundreds of "evil clown" sightings in the US and Canada eventually spread to " Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and South America." Mass hysteria can affect even politics and historians cite
Michelle Obama and her eldest daughter Malia made a rare appearance in swimsuits as they are enjoying the sun in Miami.The mother and 19-year-old daughter were spotted walking off Miami Beach on Saturday surrounded by friends - including former Obama administration senior advisor Valerie Jarrett - and Secret Service personnel.Michelle, 53, looked sensational in a white bikini top matched with high-waisted white denim cut-off shorts as she trudged her way barefoot through the sand, holding her shoes in one hand.
A Civil Defense employee is set to be retrained after a shocking blunder on Saturday morning, when a mistaken alert warning of an inbound ballistic missile sent thousands fleeing for shelter. The false alarm was caused by a Hawaii Emergency Management Agency employee who ´pushed the wrong buttons´ during an internal drill timed to coincide with a shift handover at 8.07am. The all-clear phone alert was not sent until 38 minutes later. Incredibly, officials said the employee who made the mistake wasn´t aware of it until mobile phones in the command center began displaying the alert. ´This guy feels bad,
The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he
Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that
This is the shocking moment a massive brawl broke out in a California pizza restaurant over a missing iPhone that turned out to have been in the lost and found the whole time. Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other. Newark police officers had to call in officers from the Fremont Police Department
Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.
Former President Bill Clinton said on Twitter Saturday that no Clinton Foundation funds were used to pay for his daughter´s wedding. After President Trump reportedly made crude remarks about Haiti and other less-developed countries, some on the right pointed to alleged mishandling of Haitian earthquake relief funds by the Clinton Foundation. On Twitter, President Clinton slammed the notion that any funds from the foundation, whether earmarked for Haiti or not, were used in association with his daughter Chelsea´s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—
Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
Yesterday, writing about former president Obama’s hack remark to David Letterman about the absence of “a common baseline of facts” shared by Americans, I asked whether Obama really is as shallow a thinker as he appears to be. It was not a rhetorical question. To be sure, Obama has failed to display appreciable depth since he wrote his fictionalized autobiography, Dreams From Father. His signature pronouncements and phrases are banal and borrowed. “The audacity of hope,” borrowed from his spiritual mentor the Reverend Wright. “Just words,” lifted from Deval Patrick. “You didn’t build that,” the obnoxious contribution of Elizabeth Warren. “Right
Shortly after winning the election, President Trump told the New York Times that he probably would not make good on his promise to pursue a new criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s many shady deals, from her email server to her campaign apparatus to her and Bill’s massive and well-connected foundation. Trump declared that further investigation would be “very, very divisive for the country.” Unfortunately for Hillary – and possibly for Bill as well – some things are beyond the control of even the most powerful man in the world. Some conservative members of Congress may force the Justice Department to take
President Trump is employing techniques “popularized by Joseph Stalin” to demonize the press and his approach could do great harm to the nation in the long run, Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” the retiring Arizona Republican and outspoken critic of the president said he’s deeply troubled by how Mr. Trump attacks the media. “You can talk about crowd size, and this is pretty innocuous if there’s a falsehood. But when you reflexively refer to the press as the ‘enemy of the people’ or ‘fake news,’ that has real damage,” Mr. Flake said. “It
Axios.com’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections.If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the president’s
