  • VIDEO: Black Trump Supporter, “Obama Planned the Charlotte Riots”

    Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democrat Machine don’t care about poor urban America – they only care about wealth and power. That’s what this fed up Trump supporter says. “The Democrats are in a ‘divide and conquer’ mentality.” He also claims that Obama planned this “event” when he met with domestic terror group Black Lives Matter. He maintains that it was a strategic move to burn down locations like the Ritz Carlton instead of destroying their own inner city neighborhoods. He said it’s designed to incite more of a “race war” atmosphere. Watch the video:
  • NAACP Leader on Keith Scott Shooting: ‘It Really Doesn’t Matter If He Had a Gun’

    09/22/2016 10:24:43 AM PDT · by PROCON · 67 replies ^ | Sep. 22, 2016 | Alex Griswold
    A local NAACP leader told CNN’s Carol Costello Thursday that it didn’t actually matter whether or not black Charlotte man Keith Scott had a gun on him when he was shot and killed by police. Scott’s death led to protests and violence for the past two days, after his family reported that he was holding a book when he died. Charlotte police have called that false, saying that police body camera footage shows he was brandishing a gun and that they recovered a weapon from the scene. But the president of the Charlotte chapter of the NAACP Corine Mack said...

    Mission accomplished. Truth unimportant Here was the first thing you heard from every journalist rushing to be among the first to tell the story. “Police shoot unarmed black man.” Then there were other early-emerging stories, like the one that claimed the “unarmed black man” was retreating and had his hands up, but they shot him anyway. You know the media. This is what they’re hearing, it fits their narrative of racist killer cops, and more importantly, it will bring about the one thing they want more than anything else in this world: Race riots! So off they go with the...

    Hey media, they're "riots" not "protests" Dear media outlets, All the violence we’ve been witnessing in Milwaukee for the last few days? Yeah, that’s not a “protest.” You keep calling it that, but the fact is you’re just plain wrong. These are “riots.” Ugly, violent, racist, riots. I know, I know. You get all uncomfortable when you’re forced to report things accurately. You hate to use a label that you think will get you called “racist” by the left. God forbid you’re not invited to the White House correspondent’s dinner.

Gov. Scott Walker (R) activated Wisconsin’s National Guard as a precaution but calm had apparently been restored Sunday.

    There can be no dispute that Barack Obama was forced to wade through unprecedented bigotry in his speedy ascent to the most powerful perch in the world. His predecessor, George W. Bush, called it the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” A street hustler with sterling academic bona fides — which are always suspect — Mr. Obama had never accomplished a single thing as a politician when he decided to run for president. In his 2008 campaign, he was most admired for not voting to invade Iraq — a vote that took place years before he joined the U.S. Senate.

    Freddie Gray suffered a single "high-energy injury" — like those seen in shallow-water diving incidents — most likely caused when the police van in which he was riding suddenly decelerated, according to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by The Baltimore Sun. The state medical examiner's office concluded that Gray's death could not be ruled an accident, and was instead a homicide, because officers failed to follow safety procedures "through acts of omission." Though Gray was loaded into the van on his belly, the medical examiner surmised that he may have gotten to his feet and was thrown into...

    As our first African-American president, Barack Obama had the opportunity to personify the final triumph of civil rights, and in the process, become a celebrated and historic figure. Instead, his ironic legacy on race is one of abject failure, as the rioting and looting in Baltimore underscore. The tragic reality is that Obama passed on the opportunity to the “post-racial” president he promised to be when he first ran in 2008. Instead, he farmed out leadership on racial issues to Al Sharpton, for whom grievance is like oxygen. The prejudgment of George Zimmerman, and related fury, set the stage...

    So, as Baltimore cleans up the mess left behind by the latest riot, be assured that another is right around the corner somewhere. When you’ve lived over seven decades in America, the news about another race riot is really not news. It’s just another race riot. The latest is Baltimore and the theme for this one is police violence against an unarmed black youth. This was the theme of the Ferguson, Missouri riots last year and has been a fairly common theme since the arrival of the new century fifteen years ago. Such events included riots in Cincinnati in 2001,...

In a piece outing “The Monsters Who Screamed For Dead Cops,” The Daily Beast’s Jacob Siegel cites a “web of circumstantial ties” to the group. The man who shot the disturbing video — showing marchers chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them?

    There are four major problems with justifying the violence in Ferguson by reference to the Boston Tea Party and the Stamp Act Riots, either in moral terms or in terms of effectiveness. If you were reading left-leaning commentators over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, you probably saw a rather strange argument: that looting, arson and rioting in Ferguson, Missouri in the aftermath of the decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown was defensible on the grounds that it was equivalent to the Boston Tea Party or the Stamp Act Riots. The problem with this parallel is that...

    President Obama met with Ferguson protest leaders on November 5th, the day after the midterm elections. The meeting was not on his daily schedule. He was concerned that the protesters “stay on course.” What does that mean? And why is the president meeting with the violent Mike Brown protesters before a verdict is reached in the court case? The Ferguson protesters have looted over 100 businesses in the St. Louis area. The New York Times hid this in the 21st paragraph of their report: But leaders here say that is the nature of a movement that has taken place, in...

    Protesters in Missouri are reportedly planning to shut down Clayton following a grand jury decision on whether a suburban St. Louis officer who shot unarmed teen Michael Brown should face charges. The protesters want to financially hurt Clayton, a city of roughly 15,000 residents that borders St. Louis, where organizers met late Thursday to hopefully attract hundreds if not thousands of people to show up on the first workday after the grand jury reaches a decision, KTVI reports. The protesters will meet in public spaces and may spread out in small groups, possibly to take part in civil disobedience like...

    St. Louis area schools and townships are warning residents to stock up on water, food and medicine before the Mike Brown court decision. Local officials fear a violent response to the St. Louis County Court’s decision. Over three dozen businesses were vandalized and looted during the Ferguson rioting in August. The City of Berkeley, near Ferguson, released this statement warning residents to stock up on water, food and medicine before the verdict is announced. *Make sure you have plenty of bottled water (a gallon per person per day), and non-perishable, easy-to-access food in case you cannot get to a local...
  • Brown family urges police, protester restraint

    CLAYTON, Mo. — Attorneys for the family of Michael Brown are urging restraint by both protesters and police once a grand jury decides whether the suburban St. Louis officer who shot him should face charges. Attorneys Anthony Gray and Benjamin Crump held a press conference Thursday outside the St. Louis County Justice Center, where the grand jury is meeting and Dr. Michael Baden, who performed a private autopsy on the family's behalf, was scheduled to testify. Brown's parents, who were in Geneva this week as the U.N. Committee Against Torture heard testimony about U.S. policies, did not attend....

    Any minute now, a grand jury is expected to decide if whether or not police officer Darren Wilson is to be charged for the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in the Missouri suburb of Ferguson four months ago. Forensic, autopsy and investigation reports released in October indicate the six-year veteran cop will not be indicted, an event some say will cause an outbreak in riots similar to the ones in 1992 when several Los Angeles cops were acquitted in relation to a taped beating of Rodney King. "The LA riots with Rodney King is what should be expected to...

    The U.S. government agreed to a police request to restrict more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding Ferguson, Missouri, for 12 days in August for safety, but audio recordings show that local authorities privately acknowledged the purpose was to keep away news helicopters during violent street protests. On Aug. 12, the morning after the Federal Aviation Administration imposed the first flight restriction, FAA air traffic managers struggled to redefine the flight ban to let commercial flights operate at nearby Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and police helicopters fly through the area — but ban others....

    Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson is or isn’t resigning or being pushed out of his job, depending on how much you believe CNN’s reporting last night (Jackson disputes all versions). But CNN law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes said the Ferguson PD was right to stock up on riot gear anyway, as things are “going to overheat” if Officer Darren Wilson isn’t indicted and convicted for shooting unarmed teenager Michael Brown. “Whether [Jackson] resigns, or is fired, won’t matter at the end of the day if Wilson isn’t arrested, prosecuted, and jailed for shooting Michael Brown,” said Fuentes, a former FBI...

    A St. Louis property manager is warning businesses near the St. Louis County courthouse to prepare for “civil unrest” in the wake of the imminent grand jury decision in the Michael Brown shooting. Public demonstrations and random acts of violence have plagued the St. Louis area since August, when a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed, black teenager in the North St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, MO. The warning to businesses came by way of a letter, dated October 21, addressed to “all tenants” in The Boulevard shopping center in Richmond Heights, MO. The shopping center is less...

    With the death of Michael Brown, the racial divide in this country has gotten worse. That is because of two diametrically opposed perspectives that permeate race relations. The first perspective is well-known and is reinforced repeatedly by the press and television media. Many Americans are angry and frustrated because of the belief the playing field for African-Americans is not level. White privilege keeps blacks down through job discrimination; blacks are profiled by law enforcement, resulting in much higher percentages of incarceration; the schools blacks have to attend are substandard and testing is biased. The first Ebola patient in Dallas was...
