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.

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

The case for impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama

The case for impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama

Allen WestThis morning on WMALs “Morning on the Mall” radio show with hosts Brian and Larry I was asked a simple question relating to the Taliban prisoner release and impeachment of the president. I responded yes that in this current case, the U.S. House of Representatives should file articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama.

Now before all the detractors go apoplectic here, let me tell you about Article 2 signing statements, their intent, purpose, history, and usage, and the implications for the president’s impeachment.

President Obama used an Article 2 signing statement to deem unconstitutional a measure HE had signed into law contained in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The law stated that he must advise Congress within 30 days about any plans to transfer detainees from GITMO. Obama basically stated that this was “unconstitutional” and that his unilateral action fell within his purview. Once again Obama used selective discretion as to what law he feels he must adhere to — in this case it has severe ramifications for our national security. SOURCE

Let me start this commentary off by saying; I love Allen West, I admire him greatly, I would NOT hesitate to vote for him in the position of POTUS or VPOTUS.

I have great confidence in Allen West and I have to say; if we were BOTH younger men and I was healthy and able to serve, I would follow Allen West on a campaign through HELL, while carrying a couple of 5 gallon cans full of gasoline.

I would love to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached, convicted of high crimes and misdemeanors and spending the rest of his life in a dark, dank hole in some Federal Prison. Calling for that impeachment is not at all out of line, it’s more like out of reach.

Obama will NOT be impeached until AFTER the November elections, and then only IF the GOP can retake the Senate and hold the House, and if they can come up with enough BALLS to actually do it.

Why would the United States acquiesce to the demands of a non-state, non-uniform terrorist organization — the Taliban? The Taliban is our enemy and it is not a nation-state with whom we should enter into negotiations. There are some 141 detainees at GITMO. The five released were senior Taliban officials, basically members of Mullah Omar’s inner circle. If we wanted to release detainees in exchange for Bergdahl, there were many others to choose from. Why these?

I wish we had a solid answer for that *WHY* from Allen West, it’s an answer that I am interested in hearing.

I can’t back these words up, it’s just MY opinion, but Obama never does anything that doesn’t serve HIS purpose in some way. There has to be some nefarious reasoning that has to be known before this can make sense. I am of the opinion that Obama has some grand plan as to WHO was released and WHY they were released, and somehow, it fits into one of his schemes.

The thing I seriously don’t understand is WHY did we do a 5 for 1 trade? Continue reading

Dear BLM; The Eyes of Texas have you in the Crosshairs!

God Bless Texas 2Republicans warn BLM eyeing land grab along Texas-Oklahoma border

Texas officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a massive land grab in northern Texas.

The under-the-radar issue has caught the attention of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who fired off a letter on Tuesday to BLM Director Neil Kornze saying the agency “appears to be threatening” the private property rights of “hard-working Texans.”

“Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box,” wrote Abbott, also a Republican gubernatorial candidate. SOURCE

The Bureau of Land Management is about to pick a fight that they will wish they hadn’t. I am talking about a fight that they will lose and one that very easily could cause the United States to lose the state of Texas in the process.

Something that the Washington blow-hards need to consider is this; Texas CAN survive, not just survive, but we can actually prosper without the United States. The United States will suffer greatly without Texas though.

Read Greg Abbott’s letter to the Bureau of Land Management

I have read the letter linked above and I am of the opinion that Greg Abbott is NOT about to take ANY *stuff* off of the federal government and the BLM.

Something the BLM needs to consider is this; your average, every day, run of the mill, man and woman on the street Texans aren’t going to take any *stuff* off of you people either.

It’s THAT simple, and if you think the folks in Nevada turned out to stand against you federal land grabbing, good for nothing bunch of liars and Obama lovers, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.

The agency, though, argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property.

It certainly strikes me as *strange* how all of a sudden the Feds are claiming all of this land, trying to seize land and then claiming that the land in question, and its ownership was all settled *long ago*. Continue reading
