  • Jihadist Mass Murder in USA, Four Dead, Story Being Censored by CNN and Others

    American Uncensored News Network ^ | 8-21-2014 | Dana Allen
    For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer ran loose across the country. At least four innocent men died this spring and summer as acts of “vengeance” on behalf of aggrieved Muslims, the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed. Have you heard about this horror? Probably not. Meet Ali Muhammad Brown. His homicidal Islamic terror spree took him from coast to coast. A local TV station in Seattle is not censoring this story. Below is part of their report and there is a video report on the link. CNN has a small army in Ferguson over one death, yet has...

    DES MOINES, Iowa —Police and protesters have clashed for more than a week in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri. Local filmmaker Justin Norman captured dozens of images and video of the conflict to document the tense situation. Norman said it didn’t take long to witness a physical dispute on a street corner. “Before a half-hour of being there, I saw this woman forced to the ground, handcuffed and put in the back of a police car, arrested for standing and holding a sign,” Norman said. The distance between Des Moines and Ferguson is about 340 miles, but Norman...

    A lot of racism exists in the United States, but not what you think: it's anti-white racism among a great number of blacks, and among Leftist media and politicians of every colour. What on 9 August happened in Ferguson, a suburb of St Louis, Missouri, where black delinquent Michael Brown was shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson, is like a rerun of the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case of 2012. What the Left, the media and the race industry - the people that author Tammy Bruce calls "Misery Merchants", as they have made a career out of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Protesters against the police actions in Ferguson, Mo. as well as police killings of other suspects in California and other states gathered in Oakland on Wednesday. A couple of hundred demonstrators gathered at Oakland Police headquarters on 7th and Broadway and faced off with officers in riot gear. Some protesters unveiled a new tactic, by holding up mirrors in the faces of officers. “I was holding up the mirror because I wanted the police to just look at themselves. Especially if they were about to take some kind of action just so they had to acknowledge what they were doing,”...

At issue in the lawsuits: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides tax credits and subsidies for the purchase of health insurance through exchanges that are run by “a governmental agency or nonprofit entity that is established by a state.” (2) By mid 2013 however, 33 states had refused to build an ObamaCare Exchange so necessary to the functioning of the law.

    "criminally-biased selective moralizing  -from a suitably safe distance" It's easy to criticize at-a-distance... but none of the people currently protesting against Israel would behave any differently in the same circumstances -and many of them would behave a helluva lot worse.

Where were all you 'progressive humanitarians' when Assad was butchering 1000s in Syria, or Bashir in Sudan? Where were the angry mass demonstrations for those people? Or for the victims of the (Muslim) butchery in Nigeria? Or for the 1000s murdered in Iraq just recently... in cold blood. But the...

    Americans were made acutely aware of the threat posed by Western jihadist fighters joining the ranks of ISIS in Syria and Iraq when a man with a London accent beheaded James Wright Foley as part of a taped ultimatum to President Barack Obama. Inexplicably, President Barack Obama chose not to even abstractly address the nature of that threat, even though he plans to personally chair a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on precisely this subject next month. A July intelligence estimate suggested that up to 3,000 ISIS militants were of European origin and 1,500 of those are young...

    It’s time to impeach a real crook named Nixon.  This time, it’s the current governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, who has violated every principle of American jurisprudence and individual due process rights by calling for the “vigorous prosecution”–not merely the diligent investigation–of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.  Nixon went before the cameras and lights today to demand, again and again, “justice for Michael Brown” and “justice for the Brown family,” before any facts or evidence had even been considered by a grand jury. This is appalling.  Nixon is openly declaring without due process that he, representing the most powerful force of government in the state of Missouri, has...

    It’s never been exactly cozy between American Muslims and African Americans. But with Ferguson—and Gaza—that’s changing.The Muslim-American community of which I’m part hasn’t been great in standing up with and for African Americans. A lack of empathy and racism are the main culprits. What makes this especially astonishing is that 30 percent of the Muslim-American population is African-American. You would think that there would be natural alliances, but that hasn’t been the case. At least not up until now. The shooting of Michael Brown and the heavy-handed response by the police that followed has struck a nerve among Muslims. It...

    Missouri Democratic Governor Jay Nixon announced the world is watching history unfold and that the “Show Me” state must lead the way with a “vigorous prosecution”. So in other words, nothing but a murder conviction will suffice. How commendable! All this from the same man who admonished the police department for releasing a videotape of Mike Brown robbing a convenience store because it supposedly tainted any hope of justice? Hmm, I’m not sure how the truth impedes justice – except to show Mr. Brown was indeed the same criminal who “vigorously” assaulted Officer Wilson just moments later – but it’s...

We help rebel groups oust dictators and oppressors like Muammar Gaddafi and the Taliban. We send drones and warplanes to bomb rebels from Islamic rebels in Iraq and Syria who are killing Christians. And we put sanctions on Iran for putting protesters in jail. Yet here in America, the federal government...

    Most honest criticism of President Obama doesn't stem from racism or prejudice. When George Will claims, "As the president begins his second term, the signature achievement of his first term looks remarkably rickety," he's speaking from his own honest assessment of the ACA. Similarly, when Pat Buchanan asks, "Will Obamacare Be the Death of Liberalism?" he's voicing the genuine sentiment of millions of concerned citizens. However, conservative politics since President Obama's first term has blurred the lines between sincere analysis and surreptitious messages aimed at pandering to extremists. Whereas Republicans used to shy away from the mention of Willie Horton...

The unrest came after a day of mainly peaceful protests over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by a police officer a week ago. That calm came after days of tense confrontations between protesters and the police. Trouble began again early Saturday after a crowd gathered in the area near a mini-mart that authorities allege Brown had robbed shortly before he was killed. Protests in the area soon deteriorated into looting. [Note: The first tweet below...

    So let me get this straight; Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg – also the head of the Public INTEGRITY Unit – is convicted of aggravated DUI. When she refuses to resign for behavior unbecoming of her office – accountability is foreign to most liberals - Governor Rick Perry promises to veto the 7.5 million budgeted for the Integrity Unit. And for this, something presidents and governors practically do on a weekly basis, he is indicted on felony coercion charges by a heavily Democratic-laden, Austin grand jury? Oh, something definitely stinks in the Lone Star state and it’s called dirty...

    People are angry about Michael Brown’s death. The black eighteen-year-old was shot by police in the working class St. Louis suburb of Ferguson on Saturday afternoon. He was unarmed, and according to police, attempting to grab an officer’s pistol. Ever since this took place, our already fractious national debate over race relations has been kicked into high gear. This has allowed some familiar faces from last year’s Trayvon Martin nightmare to resurface. Brown’s relatives have hired Benjamin Crump, the high-profile lawyer retained by the Martin family. Al Sharpton has made an appearance to advocate for his own vision of justice....

    The people of Ferguson, Missouri are still out on the streets. They're loud, and they're upset, but tonight they're not being intimidated by warrior cops. They're not being tear gassed. They're not being shot at with rubber bullets. They're simply doing what Americans do in hard times. The decision today by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to yank St. Louis County Police from security detail appears to be paying off. Since police shot and killed Michael Brown on Saturday, heavily armed officers locked down the neighborhood, intimidating peaceful protestors. Police aggression peaked on Wednesday night as the nation watched, as officers...
  • ISIS Issues Threat To White House; Secret Service Taking "Appropriate Steps"

    While ISIS has issued direct threats against the US in the past week now that the US is officially droning and "humanitarianly advising" it (after having armed it for the past year), until now it was largely broad, diffuse statements. That changed in the last few hours when ABC reported a photo has emerged via Twitter which shows a hand holding up an image of a flag for ISIS, displayed on a smartphone, on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House fence, an area which is frequented by thousands of tourists every day. The photo was tweeted from an...

    There are many things at which North Korea is Number One: 1. It has the greatest wealth inequality in the world. 2. It is the most closed and secretive country in the world. 3. It is the most purely Communist/Marxist/Collectivist country in the world. 4. It is the most anti-American country in the world. Removedtofit 9. It is the first country to retrogress into a royal aristocracy in the last 100 years, that has achieved blood line succession to the third generation. 10. It is the most militaristic country in the world, proud of its “Military First” or Songun policy,...
  • Hackers have the names and Social Security numbers of Ferguson police. But should they share them?

    A promotional image for Anonymous’s #OpFerguson.David, a.k.a. Pharoah, doesn’t hold a political office or opine for CNN. But this week, the 14-year-old hacker mounted what might have been one of the more personally damaging attacks against Ferguson, Mo.’s embattled police department: the name — and the address, and the Social Security number — of St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar. That’s not all. Pharoah, a self-proclaimed member of the loosely affiliated hacker collective Anonymous, has also obtained the name and Social Security number of a Ferguson police officer he believes was involved in 18-year-old Michael Brown’s fatal shooting last...

    This is an open letter to Soledad O’Brien, a paid journalist of the Qatari network Al Jazeera. It was prompted by an interview of Ms. O’Brien by Hugh Hewitt. Ms. O’Brien, I recently heard your interview with Hugh Hewitt regarding Qatar. As someone who has spent the last three years investigating what this tiny Gulf state is up to, I can assure you that Qatar not only funds international terrorism, but participates in the international narcotics traffic as well as the slave (labor and sex) trade. The Qataris have built a paper empire on human suffering. Their intimate ties with...

    Michael Snyder asked the obvious question, “How in the world is it possible that more than 170 health workers have been infected by the Ebola virus?” The World Health Organization (WHO) does not seem to have the answer even though health workers are dressed “head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus.” The WHO released the information that West Africa has tallied 1,711 Ebola diagnoses and 932 deaths. Ken Isaacs of the Samaritan’s Purse said, “We believe that these numbers represent just 25 to 50 percent of what is happening.” CDC Director...

    Anytime someone dies unexpectedly, family or not, it’s a tragedy. The death of Mike Brown in St. Louis is no different. However, regardless of culpability, I’m curious about something; have any of the race baiters, media puppets, and opportunistic anarchists converging in Missouri ever rioted or held a vigil for the numerous white victims of black crime? Hmm, how about in the name of a white citizen gunned down - wrongfully or not - by a cop? No, still nothing? There is real life misfortune, tragedy, and then there is racially instigated civil disobedience. If someone wants to pillage and...

    Police use a range of non-lethal weapons to maintain social order, quell civil disturbances and stop political violence. The scenes of violent confrontation in Ferguson, Missouri, over three straight nights show angry African-American residents protesting in response to a police shooting currently under investigation. To counter the crowds, local police have attempted to use the same techniques that security forces use around the world, including tear gas, bean bag rounds and wooden bullets. Riot control police – wearing helmets, visors, body armor and gas masks – are called in for disturbances ranging from rowdy soccer matches and merchandise looting to...

    As a 72-hour ceasefire takes hold in Israel, New York Times Gaza-based reporters remain locked in a peculiar moral equivalency between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas bent on the nation's destruction, with reporters taking pains on social media and television to stick up for Hamas, dismissing the idea of Hamas harassment of journalists as "nonsense," and even criticizing Hillary Clinton for taking on the group.. Reporter Anne Barnard appeared on Sunday's edition of CNN's Reliable Sources, hosted by former Times colleague Brian Stelter. When Stelter asked Barnard about the "biggest misconceptions" in the coverage offered by naysayers "thousands of...
