  • (NYT's) Robles Continues “Scheme Team” Narrative – All Local Officials Must Be Replaced (shortened)

    We know the entire set-up and construct of the Parks and Crump modus operandi. The Parks/Crump scheme cannot advance without removing the uncontrollable local players and replacing them with pre-selected outside agents. This is why they are continuing the call for removal of the Mayor, the Police Chief and the local prosecutor. As you are aware, and just like the 2012 Trayvon Martin scheme, their list of trusted media water-carriers includes: Al Sharpton, Joy-Ann Reid, Michael Skolnik and Frances Robles. Today, Frances picks up the removal ball and advances it toward the goal line. Note the phrase “who is white”...

    Despite surveillance video that allegedly shows Michael Brown robbing a convenience store and violently shoving a store clerk into a rack, his parents state that there is nothing to suggest that Brown had an "aggressive temperament." His mother, Lesley McSpadden, and father, Michael Brown, Sr., told CBS News that they have not yet seen that surveillance video. His mother said Brown "was just tall, big and black."

    Published on FrontPage MagazineBy Enza Ferreri Either the West Will Become Christian Again or It Will Become Muslim It's all very simple. We can't fight Islam in the West without fighting the enablers of Islam in the West, namely the Leftists. And, since the Left has many different and separate aspects, we have to fight against each one of them. Secularism, environmentalism, global warming alarmism, homosexualism, militant feminism, sexual relativism, multiculturalism, anti-Christianity, Islamophilia, post-nationalism, internationalism are just as important targets to attack as Marxist economics, the expropriation of the capitalist class (or, in its modern reincarnation, high taxation and...

    Looking at the non-stop unrest in Ferguson reminds me of what so much of America has become. Our ideology and unsettled grievances result in a tension that is keeping us apart from reason and if left unresolved will lead to even worse consequences and ramifications. I see reasonable people in Ferguson who are willing to see due process play out. After all, 99.9% of us were not there when Michael Brown was shot by police office Darren Wilson. The facts are yet to be determined and that will take a reasonable amount of time. Every news report or sound bite...

    After almost six years of pretending, Barack Hussein Obama has revealed himself to be our Golfer-In-Chief. Presidents, real presidents, are supposed to be the people who make tough decisions sometimes with very little notice. They have to be ready with ideas to safeguard Americans abroad and secure domestic tranquility at home. By these standards Barack Hussein Obama has been a miserable failure. He has continued to do what is wrong so often that only those who will directly benefit by the death march he is putting America through are left to defend him. In our streets his voters who are...

The 29,029 feet mountain is in danger. What is the crisis? According to the National Geographic team, the mountain is “overcrowded with inexperienced climbers and polluted with waste.” The nature of the pollution includes human corpses, human excrement, garbage leaking from glaciers, abandoned equipment, and overcrowding. How crowded could it be? Mark Jenkins described at 26,000 feet the dangerous inconvenience of more than 100 climbers moving...

Back just a few short years ago this would not be “news.” It would have been expected that no school, much less a parent, would allow a boy to dress like a girl, but that’s no longer the case. Now, not only is it considered “scandalous” by our idiot media that this school would dare to...

The rest stop is a member of a pair of rest stops as is often seen; one on each side of the freeway.   On the return trip, I stopped at the sister rest area to see if it had the bad signage as well.   It did.  The sign appeared to be identical with the sign that I recalled on the South side of I-40. Note the location of the prohibition on...

This unique non-motorized racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous, human-powered soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race. Teams are judged on three criteria: speed, creativity and showmanship. This criteria has inspired a piano, a baby carriage, a rodeo clown, a massive cob of corn, a jail...

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.

First, my prediction: Obama will eventually issue a bland, fairly affect-free statement, either through a spokesman or through a brief appearance on the White House lawn (no questions from the press, please). In an anodyne tone, he’ll say how sad he and the American people are at the news. He’ll promise to issue strongly worded condemnations of the killers. He’ll assure us that the killers are aberrant and have nothing to do with the...

Siding with teachers unions, atheist groups and public education administrators, Hobgood deemed the Opportunity Scholarship program to be unconstitutional. The ruling comes less than a week after the program awarded more than 360 lower-income families with education grants of $4,200 per child, providing their parents the opportunity to place their sons or daughters in a school of their choice.

The active and passive support Hollywood stars are showing for the Palestinian Liberation Front in its war against Israel is not an aberration but rather what should be expected.

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...

    The Islamic Jihad Conquest Formula By Matthew Bracken August, 2014 Mohammed’s unchanging formula for conquest is time-proven; variations were also used in history by the invading Mongol hordes among others. Emissaries ride forward of their advancing armies, offering to spare the lives of the targeted population in return for their unconditional surrender and explicit submission to their new rulers. In the Islamic context this submission is exemplified by the fresh converts repeating the Shahada prayer before Muslim witnesses. There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger. The Shahada prayer is the first of the Five Pillars of...

Obama has already dispatched Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate why Michael Brown died at the hands of a police officer who shot him six times. Obama also addressed the issue in careful language on Monday. This has not satisfied protesters who see the shooting as symptomatic of a broader culture of intimidation and civil rights violations by law enforcement. They want the president to make a personal visit to give...

    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...

    I’ve been told by a black friend that I, as a white person, can’t know the fear that permeates the mind of a black man when they are stopped by a cop, knowing that they can be harassed, arrested or killed simply for the crime of being black. That’s true. I can’t. The truth is, it does happen that innocent black men are sometimes harassed, arrested and even killed by white cops. According to USA today, there were an average of 96 instances of white cops killing black men per year between 2005 & 2012. Author Jim Fisher states that...

    The  intruder broke in the back door, which had a deadbolt lock.  He then chased the wife, and started fighting with the husband, who was still in bed when he heard the wife's cries for help.   The intruder, Marquise Trevel  Yates, had a gun, but initially used it as a bludgeon.  It is unclear exactly how many guns were involved, or who fired how often.  From news4jax.com: According to the police report, Coker retrieved his personal firearm and exchanged gunfire with Yates. Coker's wife, Pam, also fired her personal handgun at Yates, who died at the scene. Later, this...

    Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has not yet been charged in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and may never be. But just in case, there's already more than $30,800 raised in his name, "for any financial needs [Wilson and his family] may have including legal fees." In one day, the GoFundMe page "Support Officer Darren Wilson" has received more than 800 donations, well on its way to a fund-raising goal of $100,000. "He did his job correctly!" wrote Peter Ilica, who gave $100. "He needs the money now!" The page has become a virtual gathering space for those...

    For the past week, we have all watched the events of Ferguson, Missouri unfold with a mixture of anger, frustration, perverse fascination and above all sadness. Regardless of how one feels about the case and the events that led to the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, we are all left with the sobering reality that America is a house divided against itself. It's a division we have all felt for some time, but in the grand modern American tradition of denial, justification and enabling, we chose to push it toward the back of our collective psyche, hoping...

    Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has likely never heard of Edward L. Johnson, a New York City Police Sergeant who was killed by an alcoholic psycho on a cold January day more than 54 years ago. But those who passed through the NYCPD Academy during the 1960s remember the story of how Sergeant Johnson died because it was part of the Firearms Training curriculum. As the story goes, Sgt Johnson and his driver were called to a Bowery soup kitchen to back up a team of officers who were attempting to arrest a drunken, psychotic client who was using a...

    This is not the 1950s or 1960s. It is 2014 and this is getting very old. Ferguson, Missouri, and its re-run of 1950s civil rights grievances has now achieved national stature with the dispatch of our black Attorney General, Eric Holder, by our black President, Barack Obama, to address the unhappiness of blacks in the community over the shooting of a 6’4”, nearly 300 pound, black teenager, Michael Brown, who we are repeatedly told was “unarmed.” According to witnesses, Brown had accosted a police officer, Darren Wilson, after being told not to walk down the middle of the street. After...

    Holder: "Extraordinary circumstances" surrounding Brown's shooting dictated that the feds conduct their own probe If at first you don’t succeed, try - oops; not that one, but it’s very close. The one I’m thinking of when I heard that the cavalry, in the form of two black leaders, not Black Panthers, although that group are certainly present at this roasting; but these warriors heard that a young black boy got shot by a white policeman during the riots in Ferguson, suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, and they’re here to make sure some white cop gets not necessarily fair but equal...

    The “Angry Black Man” (ABM) is angry again. Civil insurrections are flaring up in various parts of the country because ABM is angry. The implied message in these riots is that it is time for the greater society to ante up more free stuff. The free stuff ABM has gotten for 4 and 5 generations has long since been taken for granted. The Society’s largesse elicits no thanks, just fresh demands accompanied by threats. ABM believed the Ministry of Information’s “Gentle Giant” (GG) mask would cover the fact that their latest Trayvon Martin was apparently a strong arm robber. Now...
