  • Sharpton: Grand Jury Decision Proves Federal Government 'Needs to Step In'

    Breitbart TV ^ | November 25, 2014
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Speaking at a press conference in St. Louis along with attorneys for Michael Brown’s family, Rev. Al Sharpton said the decision handed down by the grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson proves that the federal government should have handled the case “from day one.” “Three days after Michael Brown Jr. was killed, we had a major rally in this very church,” Sharpton began his remarks. “We said that night, with his parents present, that we had little to no faith in the grand jury by the local district attorney. We said that night that we wanted the federal...

    Race hustler and “Reverend” Al Sharton, better known as “CI-7″ (Confidential Informant 7) to the FBI once upon a time, is in trouble again, though you wouldn’t know it by the dearth of mainstream media reportage. Seems the perennial race-baiter has plenty of time to gin up problems and incite violence in Ferguson, Missouri, following a decision by a St. Louis County grand jury that there was not enough evidence to indict police officer Darren Wilson over the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, but no time to pay his “fair share” of federal taxes.

    Years of massive corruption by the man known for stirring up race relations and making them worse are finally being exposed. While flying around the country first class, dressed in lavish suits, and most recently stirring the pot in Ferguson, Mo., Al Sharpton has avoided paying millions in taxes - that would have landed the rest of us in prison. The situation is so egregious that even the left-wing New York Times finally wrote a long article last week exposing Sharpton’s tax evasion as well as graft and crime going all the way back to his teenage years. The Times found there...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton says Rand Paul’s efforts to engage black voters could present a strategic challenge for Democrats: If the Republican senator runs for president, fewer African Americans may be motivated to show up and vote against him. The civil rights activist and TV host had breakfast with the Kentucky senator last week, and the pair discussed the need for criminal justice reform before disagreeing over how to deal with the immigration system.

    Where is the black leadership now that a grand jury has decided not to indict the police officer that killed Michael Brown? Where is Al Sharpton? He advertises himself as a spokesman for the best interests of black America. But he is absent. Where is Jesse Jackson, another popular media personality who says he speaks for black America? He’s missing in action, too. It breaks my heart to see televised images of violence from Ferguson, Missouri juxtaposed next to President Obama, the first black president. The president represents black power beyond anyone’s imagination just a few years ago. President Obama...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton has always been keen to maintain his reputation as the least plausible cleric since Elmer Gantry. The racial tension and riots in Ferguson, Mo. have proved to be the perfect vehicle to do just that. Not just satisfied with creating unrest in one beleaguered Missouri city, though, the “Reverend” is looking to go national with his “peaceful protests” that worked out so well in Ferguson. With that, Sharpton’s group, the National Action Network (NAN) has put out a list of national protest sites, because apparently just one city experiencing hellish violence and racial strife just isn’t...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday sharply criticized a New York Times article that explored his history of unpaid taxes, rent and other bills, calling the report “misleading and totally out of context.” During a news conference at the headquarters of his National Action Network in Harlem, Mr. Sharpton sought to refute the article’s assertion that there were $4.5 million in state and federal tax liens outstanding against him and the for-profit businesses he controls. He said that the liens had been paid down, although he declined to say by how much, and that he was “current on all taxes”...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton is perhaps best known these days for his MSNBC show. This provides viewers with a daily diet of its host misreading his teleprompter and egregiously overusing the phrase, “I mean, what is he talking about?” But there is much more to Sharpton than his left-leaning political worldview and unimpressive TV skills. He rose to national prominence in the 1980s when he falsely accused white law enforcement officials of raping a teenage African-American girl. After that, he moved on to incite anti-Semitic violence in Brooklyn and Harlem. This was his preparation for a later bid for the...

    --SNIP-- The finances of the Rev. Al Sharpton have a somewhat troubled history. He was indicted on charges of income tax fraud and stealing from charitable donors in 1989, but was eventually acquitted at a trial. In 1993, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of failing to file a tax return for 1986. His eponymous promotional company has no official documents on record with the state. As recently as two years ago, he drew no salary, but he still manages to send his daughters to an expensive and respected private school. Mr. Sharpton has always been studiously circumspect when...

Sharpton said that his civil rights group have been planning for "vigils and non-violent demonstrations" when the Ferguson grand jury hands down its ruling. "I have pledged to the mother and father of Michael Brown that I will be there with them when the decision is announced," Sharpton said at a press conference today.

According to MSNBC activist Al Sharpton, Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating." The revelation comes 21 paragraphs into a story about what tactics the protesters might use in the event a grand jury does not indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown. One group, for example, said it...

Al Sharpton spoke to the congregation at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville, invoking Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis as he urged members to vote in the upcoming election. “How do we answer Stand Your Ground in Florida? How do we answer our outrage over Trayvon Martin? How do we answer the things that we consider abusive and disrespectful and offensive? We go to the polls!" Sharpton said Tuesday. "They should not say, in the light of all that we’ve seen in Florida, that we were missing in action when we had an opportunity to do...

    Sanford Rubenstein's mattress taken as evidence as lawyers for alleged rape victim are confident he will be indicted. ‘There’s a lot of new information that will be devastating to Mr. Rubenstein,’ said one of the attorneys representing the woman, 42, who alleges she was raped by the high-powered lawyer after a birthday bash for the Rev. Al Sharpton. Police on Monday removed at least a dozen evidence bags and a mattress from Rubenstein’s building. But Mayor de Blasio wouldn’t speculate how the rape accusations would affect the case of NYPD chokehold victim Eric Garner, whose family is represented by Rubenstein....

    NYPD detectives zeroed in on the Upper East Side apartment of Al Sharpton confidant Sanford Rubenstein Sunday in their hunt for “rape” evidence, after an attempt to nail the high-powered attorney in a setup meeting with his accuser disintegrated. Investigators spent about an hour and a half in the palatial penthouse on East 64th Street, where Rubenstein was holed up with his top-notch lawyers, Michael Ross and Benjamin Brafman. A team of NYPD crime-scene specialists then moved in and began scouring for evidence.

    Alleged rape victim had consensual sex with Sanford Rubenstein twice, source says, as police search home for object used in reported assault The woman allegedly raped by Sanford Rubenstein awoke the next morning and had sex with him again, a source close to the powerhouse attorney told the Daily News. That version of events, in which the pair had consensual sex, conflicted with one presented by a police source, who said the 42-year-old victim awoke from a booze-filled haze to find she was having sex with the 70-year-old lawyer. “It’s a classic he said, she said. She’s claiming she was...

    Racism is caused when the liberal mostly white establishment anoints left-wing radicals as black leaders. The truth is that most blacks in America are conservative patriotic religious people. Black radicals such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and historic figures such as Malcolm X and the Black Panthers are turned into cultural icons by left-wingers with ulterior motives. No wonder there is racism in America. The establishment left plucks radicals out of obscurity, grooms them, lavishes them with money and fame and holds them up as representing all black people. We don’t hear much from the majority of blacks who...

    Ferguson, Missouri, Police Officer Shot Saturday Evening By Tom Winter A Ferguson police officer was shot Saturday night in the St. Louis suburb where the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen sparked days of protests, according to officials. The officer was shot close to the area impacted by protests last month over the shooting of Michael Brown, a senior local police source with official knowledge of the situation told NBC News. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said he did not think the officer's shooting was related to two separate protests about Michael Brown's shooting that were...

    An Al Sharpton-led memorial service yesterday for Michael Brown, the black 18-year-old thug who gave a white Ferguson, Mo. police officer a severe head injury while trying to seize his handgun, became the grotesque political rally some observers feared it would be.The distinctly anti-police tone of the service was proof that the lie that Brown tried to surrender to white police officer Darren Wilson, rather than trying to beat the life out of him, won’t die. The racial-grievance industry, egged on by President Obama, won’t let it go. The Left’s narrative that the nearly 300-lbs. Brown, who had just robbed...

    A few days after 18-year-old Mike Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri, White House officials enlisted an unusual source for on-the-ground intelligence amid the chaos and tear gas: the Rev. Al Sharpton, a fiery activist who became a household name by provoking rather than pacifying. Sharpton—once such a pariah that Clinton administration officials rushed through their ribbon-cuttings in Harlem for fear he’d show up and force them to, gasp, shake his hand—arrived on the scene 72 hours after the shooting at the request of Brown’s grandfather, who had admired his advocacy on behalf of the family of slain Florida...
