Obama Appointee Manipulates Votes from the Bench

Texas voter ID law blocked by federal judge

U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales RamosAUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge on Thursday likened Texas’ tough voter ID rules to a poll tax meant to suppress minority voters and blocked Texas from enforcing it just weeks ahead of next month’s election, knocking down a law that the U.S. Justice Department condemned in court as deliberately discriminatory.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi is a defeat for Republican-backed photo ID measures that have swept the U.S. in recent years and have mostly been upheld in court. And it wasn’t the only one. The U.S. Supreme Court also blocked Wisconsin from implementing a law requiring voters to present photo IDs.

Gonzales Ramos, an appointee of President Barack Obama, never signaled during a two-week trial in September that she intended to rule on the Texas law — rebuked as the toughest of its kind in the U.S. — before Election Day. But the timing could spare an estimated 13.6 million registered Texas voters from needing one of seven kinds of photos identification to cast a ballot.

The Justice Department says more than 600,000 of those voters, mostly blacks and Hispanics, currently lack any eligible ID to vote. SOURCE

Voter ID 1
This BS has gone WAY past the point of ridiculous, this is nothing more than an attempt by the Democrats and an Obama appointed Liberal, Hispanic, female judge to legislate from the bench and force the will of the Democratic Party on the entire state of Texas.

In a post on Facebook Texas AG Greg Abbott said, “Voter fraud is real and must be stopped. I’m appealing the ruling by an Obama appointee blocking our voter ID law.”

I have to agree with Abbott, there is voter fraud and there has been in for years, this voter I.D. law is not designed to disenfranchise ANYONE, it is NOT some move designed to keep a person of ANY color from voting, all it does is help the elections workers verify that the person voting is entitled to vote and that they are who they say they are.

I have MY Texas I.D. and I have no issue with using it at the polls. Here in Rowlett we have voted at the same location for 10 years now and the elections people generally know most of us when they see us, but since the voter I.D. law has been in place most of the people that I see at the polls have their voter registration card and I.D. in hand as they walk in, most folks KNOW it’s a requirement and from my observation, most have NO issue with presenting their I.D.

No one that I know considers having a pictured I.D. to be an issue to begin with, especially a RACIAL issue as the DOJ, Eric Holder and this Hispanic judge are trying to make it out to be and I talk to a lot of my fellow citizens here in Rowlett and across Texas. We like the idea of having straight and honest elections and voter I.D. cards go a long ways in insuring that we do have honest elections. Continue reading

More on the events in Ferguson, MO

Chief releases name of officer who shot, killed Michael Brown

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) — The officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson Saturday was identified Friday.

Darren Wilson is a six year veteran of the Ferguson Police Department. Police said he had no history of discipline. Wilson was treated for injuries after the incident.

The release of the officer’s name comes after false names were released on social media and by the hacker group Anonymous. Police previously said they would not release the officer’s name due to safety concerns. On Friday, however, Chief Jackson told News 4 he felt “it was time.”

According to the police reports, Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, were suspected of taking a box of cigars from a store in Ferguson that morning. Jackson said Wilson, along with other officers, was called to the area after a 911 call reporting a “strong-arm” robbery just before noon. He said a dispatcher gave a description of the robbery suspect, and Wilson, who had been assisting on another call, was sent to investigate. That strong arm robbery was caught on video. SOURCE

Imagine that, poor little Michael was a thug, leading a thug life and had just committed a *strong-arm* robbery and roughed up a store clerk.

Michael Brown Gang Thug 1Michael Brown Gang Thug 2That *teenager* may have been unarmed but DAMN, he’s big enough to play Defensive Tackle for the Rams, uh, well, not NOW maybe, but he WAS anyway.

You see, here’s what so many just don’t understand; if an Officer of the Law is questioning you, interviewing you, and you attack that Officer, pushing him into his car as you attempt to hurt or possibly KILL that Officer, even if you don’t have a gun, if that Officer is in fear for his life he can fire on you, and keep on firing on you until the threat to his life has been removed.

Victim Mentality Afflicts Black Americans

Today I am compelled to bring you this piece of work from my wonderful friend, Mr. Alan Caruba. You can read all of his marvelous writings here: Warning Signs

Victim Mentality Afflicts Black Americans

By Alan Caruba

Police in Ferguson MOWell, we now have another black riot to put in the books. This one, like the others, involve the death of a black American by a white police officer, but buried in the stories about the Ferguson, Missouri riot is the fact that there was an altercation between Michael Brown and the officer who shot him after having sustained an injury.

The response of some members of the black community in Ferguson was to vandalize and loot stores on Sunday night victimizing the owners of those stores, some of whom avoided it by standing fully armed in front of their place of business. Since then the rioting has continued through Wednesday, inflamed by the predictable presence of Al Sharpton who is famed for getting on the first plane available to get to the scene of riots and similar incidents.

Keeping blacks convinced of their victimization has a long history and was even commented upon by Booker T. Washington (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915) who, as far back as 1895, called for avoiding confrontations over segregation by putting more reliance on long-term educational and economic advancement in the black community. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. expanded on this theme by advocating non-violent protest during the 1950s that led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964.

There is no question that blacks in America have had a very sorry history of slavery, segregation, and lynchings, but that was then and this is now. Fifty years past the Civil Rights Act, however, there should be no riots the likes of Ferguson.

Police officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect us have a right to self-defense.

Recently, a fellow blogger cited a few of the riots since the days of civil rights protests. In 1989 there was the Overton riot in Miami, Florida, in reaction to the shooting of a black motorcyclist by a Hispanic police officer in that predominantly black community. In 1992, there were the Los Angeles riots in reaction to the acquittal of LAPD officers involved in the videotaped beating of Rodney King.

In 1996 there was a riot in St. Petersburg after a police officer stopped 18 year old Tyron Lewis for speeding and his car lurched forward toward the officer. In 2001 there was a riot in Cincinnati in reaction to the acquittal of Steven Roach after the fatal shooting of an unarmed young black male, Timothy Thomas, during a foot pursuit. And in 2009 there was a riot in Oakland, California, after another fatal shooting of an unarmed black man, Oscar Grant, by a BART transit policeman.

All of these riots have in common the shooting of a black man by a white or Hispanic officer, presumably in fear for his life, with the exception of the response to the Rodney King beating following a high speed car chase.

Lost amidst these events is the fact that black men are more likely to be murdered by other black men, fully 94 percent of such deaths, despite the fact that blacks are 13 percent of the population. They account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims in America, some 7,000 annually. Continue reading
