  • Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying

    04/17/2014 5:26:01 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | April 17, 2014 | Larry Elder
    <p>If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished.</p> <p>The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives.</p>
  • Sharpton turned mob rat to dodge drug sting: report

    NY Post ^ | 4/9/14 | Kevin Fasick, Bruce Golding and Geoff Earle
    The Rev. Al Sharpton may claim he wore a wire for the feds because he had been threatened by the mob — but a new report says he turned rat to save himself after a federal drug sting. The FBI “flipped” the bombastic reverend after agents confronted him with a surveillance video showing him discussing cocaine with an ­undercover agent, The Smoking Gun Web site said Wednesday. During that March 1983 conversation, Sharpton wore a cowboy-like hat that was garish by even the rabble-rousing preacher’s 1980s standards. He later showed up at a Manhattan apartment for another meeting that June...
  • Al Sharpton Gets Testy With Lesley Stahl When Asked About FBI Role In 2011

    — President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network. The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.” “I was never told I was an informant with a number,” Sharpton said Tuesday. “In my own mind, I was not an informant. I was cooperating with an investigation.

    Ever wonder why a dirt-bag like The Reverend Al Sharpton has not yet felt the weight of the long arm of the law? On Monday it became less of a mystery. It isn’t much of a stretch to believe that Sharpton is a liar and race pimp of the worst kind. He does little that does not benefit him directly. Now the good “Reverend” has fresh bullet points to add to his CV; shakedown artist and rabble-rouser extraordinaire, it turns out that Sharpton was also tightly bound to the mob and subsequently agreed to be “flipped” by the FBI to...

    ....At the third meeting with Quintana, Sharpton made sure to go alone — wearing a cowboy hat and chomping on an unlit cigar, which was made famous in footage from the FBI surveillance leaked in 2002.... And once he was caught, he had no choice but to wear a wire to save his ample hide from prison. “Sharpton said they could do whatever they wanted with him after that,” Curington said. “Because they had him. Either he worked for them or they put that news out there that he was into coke.”.... Curington said the activist put on a good...

    The National Action Network’s annual National Convention kicked off this morning at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel on the heels of a report by The Smoking Gun on Rev. Al Sharpton’s alleged role as an FBI informant. The New York Post and Daily News both responded with front page headlines yesterday that called Mr. Sharpton, the president and founder of the civil rights organization, a “snitch” and a “rat.” For some of the attending civil rights activists, many of whom had traveled from across the country for the week-long convention, the treatment was another reminder of the uphill...

    President Obama’s labor-secretary nominee Tom Perez has a long association with CASA of Maryland, a group that serves immigrants and runs day-laborer centers. Perez was on CASA’s board from 1995 to 2002, and while it doesn’t appear he’s had any official ties since then, as a Montgomery County Council member Perez promoted a day-laborer site that was ultimately run by CASA. An example of CASA’s attention to illegal immigrants can be found in a booklet that was updated in 2008. The booklet, which can be viewed on CASA’s website here,

    Gun violence on Chicago streets has become such a concern that Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said today he's considering turning to celebrity mouthpieces like Bulls star Derrick Rose to try to convince residents to break the "no-snitch" code of silence that often impedes investigations into shootings in Chicago neighborhoods. McCarthy said he has "spoken to a number of (celebrities) and they're all very interested" in becoming spokespeople for a campaign to convince Chicagoans to cooperate with police. He would not give specific names, but did say Rose, who grew up in crime-plagued Englewood before achieving NBA fame, is the type...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is just the latest keeper of the ObamaCare enemies list. Last week, she warned that insurers who dare to pass along to consumers the cost of new federal mandates would face "zero tolerance" from the administration. But the White House has been keeping tabs on critics of ObamaCare for more than a year. It started with the health czar's Internet Snitch Brigade: Last August, the White House Office of Health Reform called on its ground troops to report on fellow citizens who talked smack about the Democratic plan.

They discovered two Tampa police officers, David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab, lying together on the ground. The officers had been shot. Dontae Morris, a 24-year-old black ex-convict, would be charged in the shootings. Roundtree checked the officers' pulses, and Keen dialed 911. The three women stayed with the dying officers until others arrived. The Hillsborough County Commission honored the women...

The former community organizer who saved American lives by undermining a left-wing terrorist plot at the 2008 Republican convention used to be a proud member of the radical left. He called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. He hated cops. He consorted with eco-terrorist tree-spikers, radical feminists and black nationalists. He was approached to rob an armored car and asked to commit arson to fight gentrification. He mouthed politically correct slogans about the Bush administration. Government didn’t care about people, and he thought the botched response to Katrina proved it. When he...

    Snitches get stitches. It’s a plot point you see all the time on television and in Hollywood — a witness to a violent crime testifies at trial, only to later suffer serious retribution, usually of the violent variety itself. But how much of a problem is witness intimidation — really — in our nation’s court systems? A chilling Philadelphia Inquirer story out Monday reports that, at least in the City of Brotherly Love, it’s a gigantic problem. “It’s endemic. People are frightened to death,” said District Attorney Lynne M. Abraham. “We’ve had witness after witness intimidated, threatened, frightened.” Indeed, the...

Just in case you want to be able to hand people over to the government, call it "violence-by-proxy", but you are too cowardly to risk the real-world consequences of doing so openly, the LEOs are anxious to accommodate you. You can now anonymously (so they say) text a tip to the local enforcers.

"It" is the Obama administration's call for Americans to snitch on their neighbors by e-mailing to the White House any communications they receive "about health insurance reform that seem fishy." The desperation move by Obama, who has staked the "success" of his presidency on nationalizing another 17 percent of the nation's economy – America's gigantic health care industry – comes in the wake of poll after poll saying Americans are scared and outraged over what they're hearing about "Obamacare."

The first wave targeted Asian eateries and struck during the 2007 holiday season. The second arrived last spring and was more indiscriminate. The third struck in July and August.

The exchange began the final ironic twist in the strange, sorry tale of "Petey Cap," one of the better-known and well-liked mobsters to grace or -- depending on your view -- plague North Jersey. Caporino was the Hasbrouck Heights wiseguy who traded four decades of service in the mob...

    PATROL BASE INCHON — The rural areas south of Baghdad have long been a trouble spot for Coalition Forces. The fertile land was given by Saddam Hussein to Baath Party members and close friends, and the ties made it a hotbed of terrorism. Increasingly, however, residents are combating terror in their areas. On July 23, a local Iraqi man came to Patrol Base Inchon, near the Euphrates River, staffed by Company D, 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) out of Fort Drum, N.Y., and elements of the 4th Battalion, 4th Brigade, 6th...

    PHOENIX -- Four people have been arrested in connection with kidnapping, assaulting and using a branding iron to burn the word "snitch" on a Mesa woman's face, police said. Investigators said they believe the crime was done in retaliation for reporting one of the men and woman to Child Protective Services in February 2006, which ultimately led to CPS taking away their children. "If CPS removes a child from the house, there must be some very serious allegations," said Sgt. Chuck Trapani of the Mesa Police Department. "So the children removed, they're in CPS custody, and now they're blaming this...

    On Saturday, Gibson released a statement apologizing: "After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the L.A. County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am...
