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).
If you are an evildoer wishing to bring harm to the members of River at Tampa Bay Church, don´t expect congregants to turn the other cheek. They´ll blast you. So says a sign at the church, at 3738 River International Drive in Tampa, that delivers a stark warning to anyone thinking of wreaking havoc. "PLEASE KNOW THIS IS NOT A GUN FREE ZONE," it reads. "WE ARE HEAVILY ARMED — ANY ATTEMPT WILL BE DEALT WITH DEADLY FORCE — YES WE ARE A CHURCH AND WE WILL PROTECT OUR PEOPLE." The message is signed "THE PASTORS." The sign at the 21-year-old church was put
Al Franken is a well-known jerk. I would say that just about everyone who has dealt with him personally knows it, including Senator Amy Klobuchar and his other Senate colleagues. One can see the pure manifestation of this aspect of his character in his treatment of Leeann Tweeden as set forth in her powerful first-person account of his unwanted attention. Franken has issued two statements in response to Tweeden’s account today. First he offered a cursory attempt at exculpation. As his colleagues abandoned him, Franken sensed he couldn’t talk his way out of this jam. He abjectly apologized and joined the
That face, that face, that wonderful face. It shines, it glows, all over the place. Who would have thought that this face was the countenance of a Hollywood siren who was also a brilliant scientist whose invention helped pave the way for present day Wifi, GPS, and Bluetooth? We know there is no official competition or Oscar for the title of the most beautiful woman in the world, and especially one who would shine anywhere. If the search was confined to Hollywood actresses in the mid-1900s, the Golden Age, the likely winner would be Hedy Lamarr, a close winner over other
Leeann Tweeden has posted a detailed account of her sexual assault by Minnesota Senator Al Franken in 2006 (Franken was first elected to office only two years later). Tweeden’s account has been posted by 790 KABC in Los Angeles, where she works as a morning news anchor. Her account is posted here. I see no reason not to take it at face value. The incidents recounted by Tweeden amount to recent history by comparison with the conduct charged against Roy Moore. Moreover, unlike the charges against Moore, Tweeden’s case against Franken is supported by photographic evidence. She has the ocular proof
ST. PETERSBURG — What does disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein have to do with the city’s fight against the influence of money in politics? Believe it or not, there is a connection. Last month the City Council approved an ordinance limiting the amount an individual can give a political action committee in a single year to $5,000. It could serve as a vehicle for challenging the Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission decision. The historic 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling removed restrictions on how much outside groups can spend on elections. Two weeks ago, City Council chairwoman Darden Rice touted the offer
Senator Patrick Leahy is the Democratic former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He remains a member of the committee. He must be one of the Senate’s unfunniest senators and most partisan hacks. Vice President Cheney spoke for a lot of us with his imprecation to Leahy back in 2004. Serving on the Judiciary Committee with Minnesota’s own Al Franken, however, has probably dimmed Leahy’s bulb in all departments. Leahy showed his stuff in questioning Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett at the committee hearing on his nomination to the Fifth Circuit yesterday. Justice Willett is known to many of us
The Trump administration’s Justice Department is inching toward a full investigation of possible corruption in Hillary Clinton’s dealings with Russia as secretary of state — with Republican lawmakers urging a focus on her campaign as well. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, addressing the House Judiciary Committee yesterday, insisted any probe of President Trump’s 2016 Democratic rival will be handled in a nonpartisan way, without undue influence from the White House despite Trump’s goading tweets. A DOJ letter to the committee Monday said Sessions has directed senior federal prosecutors to “evaluate certain issues” related to Clinton and recommend whether a special counsel should be
Senate Republicans coupled its tax-reform bill with a massive budget cut. The House of Representatives would be wise to follow suit. The Senate majority leader and the Senate finance committee endorsed Senator Tom Cotton’s proposal to include a repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate alongside tax cuts. This either kills two birds with one stone or that one stone sinks the tax plan because of its weight. If Senator Bob Corker issued his complaints last month regarding deficit reduction in earnest, one guesses that the former occurs. Aside from moving toward individual freedom and the Constitution, the repeal of the individual mandate makes
ZEPHYRHILLS — An experienced parachutist died Monday while practicing a skydiving technique called "tracking" at Skydive City, said general manager David "T.K." Hayes. The skydiver was identified as Kurt A. Tracy, 36, by Zephyrhills police on Tuesday. The incident took place around 4:30 p.m. Monday. Tracy’s parachute failed to open while jumping from 13,500 feet with a group, police said. He was taken to Zephyrhills Municipal Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. He had performed more than 250 jumps, police said. Tracy and the group of skydivers he was with were "tracking," or performing horizontal body movements while free-falling, according to a
No sooner do I note yesterday that GQ magazine has consistently disgraced itself with its choice of cover honorees (culminating in naming Colin Kaepernick its “Citizen of the Year”) than Marie Claire decided to say “Hold my beer” and offer up this tweet: (Snip) Now, I do not follow Taylor Swift at all, and couldn’t pick one of her tunes out of a police lineup. But I know that she is phenomenally successful, and as such the Cult of Liberalism is demanding that she throw in with the rest of the celebrity mob on behalf of liberalism, or “explain” why
Is there anything in the news more farcical than liberals and feminists saying it’s time for “a reckoning with Bill Clinton”? Clinton was credibly accused of severe sexual misconduct by several women. One of them, Juanita Broaddrick, alleged that Clinton raped her. Her claim was highly credibly, inasmuch as she complained contemporaneously to five people. Clinton also admitted, after brazenly lying about it, to having sex with Monica Lewinsky. The White House intern was barely out of her teens at the time. If Roy Moore, against whom no allegation of sexual misconduct has been conclusively established, is unfit to occupy one of
A pro-ISIS media group today circulated a poster depicting a vehicle moving toward the Vatican with a cache of weapons, vowing "Christmas blood." "So wait..." are the only other words on the image from the Wafa´ Media Foundation. The illustration shows the point of view from an unseen driver as his or her BMW approaches St. Peter´s Basilica in the evening with an unobstructed view driving down Via della Conciliazione. In the passenger seat: a rifle, a handgun and a backpack. In the rearview mirror, a masked face. ISIS followers have favored attacks during the holiday season, with the 2015 attack on a
Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC. When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing. You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special
NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?" Trump
Lil Peep, a fast-rising rapper whose emotional tracks charted depression and drug use, has died aged 21. His UK representative confirmed the news to the Guardian. Gustav Åhr, who grew up in Long Beach, New York, was reportedly taken to hospital following an overdose, according to music manager Adam Grandmaison. In a video Åhr posted online hours before his death, he said he had taken prescription drugs and other substances, saying: “I’m good, I’m not sick”. Lil Peep: the YouTube rapper who´s taking back emo Read more The rap world has paid tribute to him, with Diplo writing on Twitter that Åhr “had so
WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that the Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) after his bribery and corruption trial ended in a mistrial. “Because of the seriousness of these charges, I am calling on the Senate Ethics committee to immediately investigate Senator Menendez’s actions which led to his indictment," McConnell said in a statement. He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history." Menendez´s bribery and corruption trial ended with the judge declaring a mistrial on Thursday after jurors
Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was
Following The Gateway Pundit’s viral story on Judge Roy Moore’s alleged signature inside accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook, more evidence suggests it may be a forgery.On Monday, CNN published photos of the signature showing two different inks. The signature says “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.” Strangely, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy,” is written in black ink, while “Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” is in blue ink. (Snip)Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and
Former President George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a Michigan woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992. The woman, now 55, spoke exclusively with CNN and said she was attending a fundraiser for Bush´s re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her rear end during a photo-op. "We got closer together for a family photo and it was like ´Holy crap!´" she said, describing the moment Bush touched her buttocks. "It was like a gentle squeeze."
Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson, said she had not asked her client if she saw Moore sign her yearbook. Questions had been raised by the Moore campaign a day earlier at a press conference in Birmingham, AL about the authenticity of the signature, which Allred had held up as evidence to bolster Young’s claim against Moore. Partial transcript as follows: TUR: Does your client, Beverly Young Nelson, remember him signing it? ALLRED: She remembers — well, she remembers being with him. It was on the counter. She
