Protestors torched Michael Brown family's church during Monday night's Ferguson protests as pastor blames white supremacists

In Ferguson, facts don't matter. What does matter is any grievance, no matter how bizarre or unfounded, that's entertained by a perpetually offended Black person. The latest is Rev. Carlton Lee:

The Missouri church attended by Michael Brown’s father and his family was one of a dozen or so buildings burned to the ground during Monday night’s protests in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.

While the majority of the buildings destroyed on Monday were in downtown Ferguson, the Flood Christian Church is located some three miles away from the protests in a remote section of Country Club Hills.

Pastor Carlton Lee, who has been a vocal advocate for the Browns since their son was shot in August, has said he believes that white supremacists rather than protesters were to blame for the destruction.

Why does Rev. Lee say this? What facts does he present? Well, none, really - but it's his "belief" that White supremacists torched his church, so the media gives him a forum. And don't you know that when further mindless violence erupts, the media will be aghast and demand an investigation into the roots of Black anger. And so it goes.

US drone strikes – the facts on the ground

Whatever the apologists for the DC Empire say it stands for, this is what it does:

The drones came for Ayman Zawahiri on 13 January 2006, hovering over a village in Pakistan called Damadola. Ten months later, they came again for the man who would become al-Qaida’s leader, this time in Bajaur.

Eight years later, Zawahiri is still alive. Seventy-six children and 29 adults, according to reports after the two strikes, are not.
It's also true that no matter how many times DC's mouthpieces say so, those who oppose the Empire are not motivated by blind, irrational hatred of freedom, minorities, or universal brotherhood, but by recognition of the terror and oppression DC unleashes at home and abroad.

13 Facts About Ferguson the Media Will Never Tell You

From Newsmax:

1. Surveillance video showed that shortly before the confrontation, 18-year-old Brown stole cigarillos from a convenience store and shoved a clerk who tried to stop him.

2. The autopsy report showed that Brown had marijuana in his system when he died.

3. Officer Wilson, driving to the call of a medical emergency, first encountered Brown walking in the middle of a street and told Brown and his friend to walk on the sidewalk. Brown responded with an expletive.

4. Wilson chose to confront Brown only after he saw the cigarillos in his hand and recalled the radio report of a robbery at the convenience store.

5. Wilson said when he tried to open his car door, Brown slammed it back shut, then punched Wilson in the face.

6. Fearing another punch could knock him out, Wilson drew his gun, he told the grand jury, and Brown grabbed the gun, saying "you are too much of a pussy to shoot me."

7. An African-American witness confirmed that Brown and Wilson appeared to be "arm-wrestling" by the car.

8. Another witness saw Brown leaning through the car's window and said "some sort of confrontation was taking place."

9. After Wilson fired a shot that struck Brown's hand, Brown fled and Wilson gave chase. Brown suddenly stopped. An unidentified witness told the grand jury that 6-foot-4, 292-pound Brown charged at Wilson with his head down. Wilson said Brown put his hand under the waistband of his pants as he continued toward Wilson. That's when Wilson fired.

10. A witness testified that Brown never raised his hands.

11. Gunpowder found on the wound on Brown's hand indicated his hand was close to the gun when it fired. According to a report, the hand wound showed foreign matter "consistent with products that are discharged from the barrel of a firearm."

12. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist who reviewed the autopsy for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said the gunpowder "supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun, if he has particulate matter in the wound."

13. Wilson said Brown was physically uncontrollable and "for lack of a better word, crazy." He said that during the confrontation, he was thinking: "He's gonna kill me. How do I survive?" Legal experts say police officers typically have wide latitude to use deadly force when they feel their safety is threatened.

I can hear Charles Johnson gnashing his teeth already...

Priorities in Ferguson

In response to "It's mayhem out here," a puzzled reader asks "Where are the police???"

The police are busily showing restraint. After all, Attorney General Eric Holder has already announced a federal investigation of the Ferguson PD. What's more important, protecting lives and property, or avoiding a civil rights lawsuit?

"It's mayhem out here"

Welcome to Ferguson, where the locals are looting in the name of social justice. Notice the reporter's consternation at thugs who're expressing their anger at "the man" by stealing from their own people:

Quote of the day

"Every time this country has pardoned illegal immigrants, crime and black unemployment have gone through the roof. Don’t believe me? Check the statistics from Reagan’s congressionally-approved amnesty package. Not only did three times as many illegal immigrants as were promised become legal through the undiscovered intricacies of chain immigration, but the crime rate soared and black unemployment went through the roof."

White supremacists arrested in Ferguson

More disturbing news from Ferguson:

Two men suspected of buying explosives they planned to detonate during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, once a grand jury decides the Michael Brown case, were arrested on Friday and charged with federal firearms offenses, a law enforcement official told Reuters.

Word of the arrests, reported by a number of media outlets Friday, came ahead of the grand jury's widely anticipated decision on whether the white police officer who fatally shot Brown, an unarmed black teenager, should be indicted on criminal charges.

The Aug. 9 slaying of 18-year-old Brown under disputed circumstances became a flashpoint for U.S. racial tensions, triggering weeks of sometimes violent protests in the St. Louis suburb by demonstrators calling for officer Darren Wilson's arrest.
Oh, brother, I can hear Mark Potok now, with his voicebox set to full outrage. The actions of these violent nutcases will be used to discredit the entire conservative movement. I'm just puzzled that this story hasn't been ballyhooed in the mainstream media. Odd...

But wait - what's this?

Against this backdrop of heightened tensions, according to a law enforcement source, two men described as reputed members of a militant group called the New Black Panther Party, were arrested in the St. Louis area in an FBI sting operation.
Oh, that explains a lot. But I'm sure the SPLC will issue trembling denunciations of these domestic terrorists ... any time now ... wait for it ...

UKIP Emerges as Major Political Power

The people of Britain have an alternative to the pro-immigration, pro-European Union parties. Nigel Farage's U.K. Independence Party scored a major political victory yesterday:

The populist U.K. Independence Party won its second seat in the British Parliament early Friday with a striking victory that threatened to destabilize the Conservative Party of Prime Minister David Cameron.

The right-wing party, known as UKIP, won a parliamentary by-election in Rochester and Strood in southern England, in a contest prompted by the defection of a lawmaker, Mark Reckless, from the Conservatives. ...

In response to the rise of UKIP, Mr. Cameron has already toughened his position on immigration and the European Union, the two main issues on which UKIP campaigns.
Looks like there are still some in Britain who refuse to go gentle into the night of Third-World colonization. Here's to you, chaps.

Has the Democratic Party Given Up on the South?

They might as well, says the New York Times:

This region has become so solidly Republican, particularly since President Obama was elected, that there isn’t much left there for the Democratic Party to defend or salvage. For instance, prior to the 2010 midterms there were 54 Blue Dog Democrats in Congress. In the outgoing Congress, there are only 19 left, including eight from the South....

After the midterms, The Associated Press provided this tally:

“In January, the G.O.P. will control every governor’s office, two U.S. Senate seats, nearly every majority-white congressional district and both state legislative chambers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas.”
This assessment echoes Pat Buchanan's post-election observations. Both Buchanan and the Times conclude the South is becoming "solid" again, though this time under the Republican banner instead of the Democratic one. And the Times piece ends with this: "We are self-sorting ourselves into hardened, impenetrable citadels of ideological sameness."

True. But isn't division what one would expect from importing diversity? Those who expected DC's insane immigration policies to lead to Kumbaya-style group hugs are in for a real shock.

Majority Sees DC as Dysfunctional

Image from Listverse

You'd expect voters to feel some relief after blowing off a lot of built-up steam in the recent midterms. But they don't - in fact, pessimism has ratcheted up. To a huge majority, D.C. means corruption, waste, and tragi-comical dysfunction:

The recently concluded midterm elections cost billions of dollars, generated thousands of different headlines and resulted in Republicans winning control of the U.S. Senate. But they didn’t change much else – especially the public’s attitudes about politics in Washington, D.C., according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Consider:

•More than three-quarters of Americans say the election won’t substantially change the nation’s direction;
•More say they have less confidence that elected leaders in Washington will start working together to solve problems
Again, we're seeing why more voters look to their State legislatures to get things done. That's the ONLY way we can get anything done on a growing list of pressing problems from illegal immigration to domestic spying.

Legacy of Slavery - or Liberalism?

One of my favorite iconoclasts, Thomas Sowell, rips up liberal know-it-all Nicholas Kristoff:

New York Times writer Nicholas Kristof asserts that there is “overwhelming evidence that centuries of racial subjugation still shape inequity in the 21st century” and he mentions “the lingering effects of slavery.” But before we become overwhelmed, that evidence should be checked out....

Kristof’s other “overwhelming” evidence of the current effects of past slavery is that blacks do not have as much income as whites. But Puerto Ricans do not have as much income as Japanese Americans. Mexican Americans do not have as much income as Cuban Americans. All sorts of people do not have as much income as all sorts of other people, not only in the United States, but in countries around the world. And most of these people were never enslaved.
Sowell then marches out some cold, hard facts demonstrating how Blacks in the US were better off BEFORE the Civil Rights Revolution. Despite the rhetoric that heralded that revolution, it in fact increased Black dependence on government and devastated Black families. Worse, it siphoned off the most capable Blacks into the White mainstream, which culturally, intellectually, and financially impoverished Black society. Not only are we still seeing the effects of that today, it's getting worse.

But try explaining that to Al Sharpton, Morris Dees, Jesse Jackson, or any other merchants of perpetual resentment.

Financial settlement for family of Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan

Only in America.

Thomas Duncan lies about having been exposed to Ebola, then makes his way to Texas where he's given FREE TREATMENT. He dies of Ebola, which has a 70% mortality rate. So what does his family back in Africa do? They sue the hospital, of course. The hospital decides to settle out of court:

The undisclosed settlement paid by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital is described by attorney Les Weisbrod as 'a very good deal' for Duncan's four kids and parents. It comes just a month after the 42-year-old Liberian national died of Ebola at the Dallas hospital.
The "multifaceted" agreement includes - now get this - a new charity for Ebola victims to be funded by the Texas Health Resources Foundation, and a fuzzy promise to make a movie about Duncan's death.

We are the world's crazy rich uncle.

The Cold Civil War, ctd.

The electoral map shows that things are so different in this country from generations past that they're really the same. What separates the two regions? Culture. From the Washington Post:

We are used to our current political divides, but in many ways the political alignment of 1896 also makes economic sense, with the richer northeastern states supporting more conservative economic policies. Even in a world in which parties have static positions on issues, there is no obvious way that liberal New Yorkers, say, should vote: should they follow the 1896 pattern and support business-friendly policies that favor local industries, or should they vote as they do now and support higher taxes, which ultimately redistribute money to faraway states with more conservative values? A similar conundrum befalls a conservative Mississippian or Kansan in the other direction. In that sense, it perhaps is plausible that, although economic issues have been and remain most important in any particular election, social issues can be the determining factor that can, over a century, reverse the electoral map.

The Big Money Behind the Push for an Immigration Overhaul

Think the big corporations and pressure groups pushing for amnesty are motivated by compassion for the huddled Hispanic masses? Think again - what drives them is their insatiable appetites for cheap, exploitable labor. If they win, the poor and middle class will take another painful hit to their pocketbooks. That would mean more money for obscene profits and executive bonuses:

When President Obama announces major changes to the nation’s immigration enforcement system as early as next week, his decision will partly be a result of a yearslong campaign of pressure by immigrant rights groups, which have grown from a cluster of lobbying organizations into a national force.

A vital part of that expansion has involved money: major donations from some of the nation’s wealthiest liberal foundations, including the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Open Society Foundations of the financier George Soros, and the Atlantic Philanthropies. Over the past decade those donors have invested more than $300 million in immigrant organizations, including many fighting for a pathway to citizenship for immigrants here illegally.
A true picture of who's behind this drive would forget the propaganda shots of dewy-eyed Hispanic toddlers and focus instead of George Soros and the Koch brothers picking the pockets of middle class workers.

Something for DC apologists to consider

The Obama regime comes clean on DC's illegal and immoral acts after 9/11. After years of outright denial, as well as a shameless barrage of weasel words like "enhanced interrogation," the US government admits to what everyone already knew about its use of torture:

In a two-day presentation in Geneva, the American delegation acknowledged that the United States had tortured terrorism suspects after the Sept. 11 attacks. It emphasized, however, that the government had since tightened its rules, including with a 2005 statute against using cruelty and a 2009 executive order by President Obama that limits interrogators to a list of techniques in an Army field manual.
Confession is good for the soul, but the Evil Empire has none. It lied about torture and WMD in the past, and will lie again.

Remember this the next time you're asked to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Busted!

Oh, dear. Ed Sebesta has caught me red-handed. He says I'm guilty - that is, G-U-I-L-T-Y - of "playing with the facts" on European secession movements. Here's his post, entitled Neo-Confederates play with the facts on secession:

The League of the South is reporting on a recent Catalan vote on secession.

http://www.lsrebellion.blogspot.com/2014/11/81-of-catalans-vote-for-independence.html

The headline proclaims "81% of Catalans Vote for Secession." Is that true? No.

The facts are in this article:

http://www.newsweek.com/spains-catalans-vote-secede-symbolic-ballot-turnout-low-283306

Turn out was very low as reported in "Newsweek."

"Turnout was also relatively low, at around 2.23 million out of 5.4 million potential voters."
The reason the turn out was low was because it wasn't a real ballot. It was at places run at by pro-independence groups and not official polling places.

This is another League of the South headline:

"Venice votes to cut ties with Italy"

Playing with the facts, huh? Where to start? Whenever you respond to anything Sebesta writes, you have to realize you've chosen to deal with a swirling mass of half-baked notions and, um, "creative" interpretations of the facts. It's like trying to organize a bucket of squirming worms. So you just pick a spot in his dizzying narrative and go from there.

We'll start with my "misleading" headlines. For one thing, I didn't compose them. Both were taken from the original headlines from the news articles I linked to. For example, the original Business Insider headline was "81% Of Catalans Vote For Independence From Spain In Symbolic Referendum." In my post, I quoted the original source stating that the vote was "a simulated referendum." And the original headline from the PressTV report on the Venetian vote was "Venetians call for independence from Italy." I linked to both stories so readers could see for themselves.

Did I pick two unrepresentative sources that were biased toward the secessionists? Here's the BBC's headline from its article on Catalonia: "Catalonia vote: 80% back independence."

And Time Magazine's story bore the following headline: Catalonian Vote for Independence Could Lead to Compromise

There were two votes. Both were for self-government. In fact, here's what Time had to say about the self-determination effort in Catalonia: "The results represented a triumph for the pro-independence movement, not only because they managed to pull it off in the face of fierce Spanish opposition, but because the returns were so overwhelmingly in their favor: nearly 80.76% answered those two questions in the affirmative."

Guess we can only conclude that PressTV, the BBC, and Time are all Neo-Confederate news organizations.

Sebesta clutches to the report that turnout was low in the Catalan vote, ignoring the fact that Madrid refused to allow a referendum. The Catalan self-determination movement still managed to round up over 40,000 volunteers to conduct the vote. That's quite an accomplishment in the face of threats from the central government.

Funny how Sebesta poses as a champion of "democracy," yet stands with Generalissimo Francisco Franco to deny self-government to minorities.

DC Mandates Same-Sex "Marriage" on South Carolina

Once again, DC usurps State sovereignty and imposes its radical egalitarian agenda on the people AGAINST THEIR WILL:

Federal Judge Richard Gergel of Charleston overturned state law and ruled Wednesday that couples of the same sex have a right under the U.S. Constitution to marry in South Carolina.

Allen Wilson, the state’s attorney general, said that he will file a quick appeal.
The bright side of this story is that South Carolina's attorney general has the backbone to resist this completely unconstitutional intrusion, unlike many other attorneys general, including (ugh!) Roy Cooper, North Carolina's attorney general (and future FAILED candidate for governor).

Illegal immigrants faking crimes to stay in Charlotte

The illegal alien invaders have a nifty new trick up their sleeves for bilking American taxpayers. From a WSOC-TV investigation:

It’s called a U-Visa, and the government hands out 10,000 of them a year to victims of certain -- mostly violent -- crimes and their family members. Fernandez and his mother received theirs’ in July and it immediately began opening doors....

A U-Visa is good for four years and just filling out an application can delay or stop deportation proceedings altogether.

Not surprisingly, that's led to a flood of applications at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, where they have had more than 700 thus far in 2014.
Oh, good. We needed another flood of scams perpetrated by our colonizers. And I have to admit I've never heard of the U-Visa, which sounds like it was designed to encourage fraud and further colonization. I cannot keep up with all the idiotic schemes our back-stabbing government has concocted. It staggers the mind.

Urgent Congressional Action Needed to Defund Obama Amnesty

The U.S. House will reconvene on Thursday.

President Obama is still threatening to give an executive amnesty to 5-6 million illegal immigrants in December, perhaps before. The main tool Congress has to stop him is to defund it.

Tell your representative to defund amnesty NOW, so that it cannot be implemented in the Lame Duck Session. Tell them not to approve any funding plan that might allow Obama to fund amnesty.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE'S VOTE AGAINST OBAMA'S AMNESTY OR TO DEFUND HIS AMNESTY NOW FOR GRANTED. Contact their office by phone, email, or fax immediately.

Please do it ASAP. There is no time to lose.

If Obama gets away with his administrative amnesty, he will have destroyed the Constitution and almost guaranteed a One Party Socialist Government with a few years.

This is very important. Please Act now. Click here to look up your representative's contact info by zip code.

81% Of Catalans Vote For Independence

These numbers are hard to ignore - not that that's going to keep supporters of the dying megastate from dismissing them - but it's clear the rising tide of self-determination has hit the shores of Spain. From Business Insider:

Nearly 81% of 2.25 million Catalans who participated in a simulated referendum Sunday said they wanted autonomy from Spain, according to preliminary results cited by the Financial Times and other news outlets.

Catalan Vice President Joana Ortega announced the results of the vote on Monday morning at 12:30 a.m. with just over 88% of the returns in from polling stations, according to the Spain Report. 80.72% of Catalans voted yes-yes to a two-part question asking if they wanted Catalonia to be a state and if they wanted that state to be autonomous.
What's funny is how both the left and the US corporate media sneer at European self-determination movements. In this case, they're taking the same position as Generalissimo Francisco Franco - who, like the 19th- and 20th-century megastate he held together by terror, is still dead. They just don't know it yet.

Two Nations Emerge

Last Tuesday, the last Southern Democrat went the way of the Dodo bird in the Deep South. And White Democrats are getting hard to find anywhere below the Mason-Dixon line. As the New Republic reports in its latest issue, the Solid South has arisen once again, this time for the Republican Party. Not that the GOP is a desirable or capable champion of Southern values, but folks see it as the best deal going. What's significant is that North and South are slipping away from each other like two tectonic plates along a fault line.

Stay tuned. This is going to be interesting.

Venetians call for independence from Italy

The spirit of self-determination is haunting Europe. Now it's Venice's turn to shake up the globalists:

The leader of the Venetian independence movement has called for the secession of the wealthy and industrial northeastern Italian region of Veneto from Italy.

Italy “must leave our territory” and “give our people freedom to decide. It is an act of democracy and freedom,” said Alessio Morosin on Friday.

"The Veneto is self-governed as an independent state - it was called La Serenissima, an organization that has a distinguished history, and that had nothing to do with Italy for 1,100 years. Meanwhile our attachment to the Italian state is no more than 148 years. It's absurd compared with our history," he added.

Morosin said Venetian officials are concerned that Italy’s paralyzing economic crisis would also affect Veneto, adding that the region’s independence from Rome will improve its economic situation.
I bet ol' Benito is spinning in his grave...

Obama Seeks $5.6 Billion to Double Number of Ground Troops in Iraq

Here we go again. Let me know when you've had enough.

When Fall the Mighty

Here in Charlotte, folks are being treated to the spectacle of two high-and-mighty lefties going down in flames. This is not only highly entertaining, but quite instructive.

Above is a picture of Heath Morrison, the ex-Superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools, next to a picture of Mayhem from the Allstate ads. (They really look alike, don't they?) Anyway, not that long ago, Morrison invited Tim Wise to come to Charlotte and lecture Whites about how eeevil they are. Wise, who is just a little butterball of smug superiority, apparently wasn't enough. So Morrison tried to bring in Glenn Singleton, a "Critical Race Theory" huckster who eclipses even Tim Wise in heavy-handed and tendentious grandstanding. Fortunately, enough opposition rose up to keep Singleton's noxious presence out of CMS schools - at least for the time being.

Earlier this week, Morrison unexpectedly announced he had to quit his job because of "family issues." When pressed, he explained he had to look after his ailing mother.

My BS detector nearly blew a circuit breaker.

Turns out CMS has just compiled a report documenting how Morrison had misled the Board of Education about cost overruns on pet projects. Worse, the report claimed Morrison had created a "climate of fear" among CMS staff. One assistant told investigators that she was constantly in tears from Morrison's verbal abuse. So while Morrison was conducting "anti-bullying" indoctrination for CMS students, he was bullying his underlings.

The other big news is that Patrick Cannon, who pled guilty to multiple counts of bribery while mayor of Charlotte, has been placed under house arrest for voting despite being a felon. Cannon, you'll remember, was the public official who leaned on area hotels to deny the civil rights of Jared Taylor and others to hold a conference in Charlotte. Local pundits are trying to figure out why Cannon filed an absentee ballot knowing full well it was illegal to do so.

I have a guess. Cannon is the type who thinks he can get away with anything. He thought he could get away with taking bribes, and apparently imagined it was a fluke that he got caught. I believe that by voting, he was trying to prove he was still bulletproof, and could fool the people at least one more time. Turns out he was wrong.
