Obama tells Ferguson not to resort to violence while he sends more troops, guns and bombs to Iraq...Submitted by turling on Wed, 11/26/2014 - 01:14
and Afghanistan. Am I missing something here? Is this not a prime example of hypocrisy? The warmonger has no business telling the city of Ferguson to talk things out and begs them not resort to violence and destruction. "Nothing of benefit results from destructive acts," the president said.
What a charade!
The latter half of this op-ed by Rand Paul sounds thrillingly like a nominating convention acceptance speech. As the only presumptive presidential candidate to even visit Ferguson, Rand has more cred when discussing this issue than any other Republican. And people are taking note.
Kevin Glass commented on Rand's article on TownHall.com, saying, "Sen. Rand Paul is perhaps the Republican politician most attempting to create positive change out of the tragedy that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri. He has consistently made the case that it is government dysfunction and mismanagement that created the backdrop for the sense of injustice in the St. Louis suburb."
In the search for culpability for the tragedy in Ferguson, I mostly blame politicians. Michael Brown’s death and the suffocation of Eric Garner in New York for selling untaxed cigarettes indicate something is wrong with criminal justice in America. The War on Drugs has created a culture of violence and put police in a nearly impossible situation. […]
Check out this new video I made. It's a list of 8 of the dumbest statements ever made by anti-gun politicians. It's sort of a follow-up to my now infamous "Ghost Gun" video. Check it out and share it and lets see if we can't make these idiots go viral!
Can somebody tell me what just happened???
Something JUST happened...Is something broken with this site??
This site has to be broken....
The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy
HOW DID THIS CASE GET PICKED???
Everyone has been railroaded by the media into a box canyon. Yes, there are thousands of bloodthirsty killer-cops out there. No, Darren Wilson is not one of them and the verdict was correct.
We were all duped, the innocent Gentle Giant walking while black gunned down in cold blood....
We were roped in.
Then the other facts dribbled out: Brown was stoned. Brown robbed the cigar shop. Brown attacked the cop. Etc.
YOU ARE SHEEPLE! You should have given up the ghost a long time ago.
I've read about a mayor* who plainly admitted that he couldn't ever go after corrupt police. He confessed that if he did, the entire force would harass him and his family and other public workers related. E.g., follow them home from restaurants for DUI arrests, bust their kids for pot, invent prostitution charges etc.
The stiffest allowable punishment for a cop is probably a paid vacation.
In a case where a cop shoots somebody, the people who collect the evidence and investigate are co-workers of the cops. Maybe even his friends. And they are likely to protect their own fraternity. After all, if you are one of them, it might be your own investigation that needs help some day.
Once a case goes to court, it's the judicial system vs. the judicial system. At a practical level, they need the cops' support and participation like no other group.
They need a stream of criminals and convictions. Cops bring this. The court's income is at stake. Every organization's primary objective is to survive and grow. This is the court's mission, well above dispensing justice.
You hear about the growing prisoner population, but not so much about a growing court business. But if prisons are getting larger, so must the courts.
I don't know much about posting, but wanted to share this video. http://kdvr.com/2014/11/24/denver-police-accused-of-excessiv...
Governments should sack plans to auction off old television frequencies to the highest bidder and instead use the bandwidth for free super-frequency WiFi if they want to boost the economy, scientists have said. Here
Years ago, my husband and I saw a study published that indicated milk was probably a culprit in the onset of juvenile (type 1) diabetes. The study was soon scrubbed, and the insulin manufacturers continued with their highly profitable business. Similar studies can now be found:
(although the CDC continues to deny the link.)
Years ago, I had a lot of stomach problems. No need to get graphic, just know that any sort of issue that can occur in a digestive tract was going on in mine. I heard that changing to raw milk might help, so I tried it. I found IMMEDIATE relief from all symptoms. Hallelujah!
In recent years, a LOT of marketing has been done to promote "probiotic" foods. This morning, I see that yogurt is being touted as a preventative for adult onset (type 2) diabetes. "Probiotics" are beneficial micro-organisms that we pasteurize out of raw milk, then grow in a lab to put into yogurt.
The Jewish State in the Levant is a burden we shouldn’t have to bear
by Justin Raimondo, November 24, 2014
Today [November 24, 2014] is the deadline for the closing of a deal with Iran regarding their nuclear program. No one should be surprised that Israel is marking this deadline with a threat to attack Iran regardless of the outcome of the negotiations. As the Jerusalem Post is reporting on its front page:
"Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit."
This is a lie, and is widely recognized as such: the Israelis don’t have the military capacity to take out all the Iranian nuclear sites without American assistance. Aside from that, however, they never attack those capable of hitting back in any significant way, so we can write off this latest threat as just so much kvetching.
Dear Daily Paul
I sit tonight with a feeling inside of turmoil, distrust, and just an utter feeling of dismay and gloom. I don’t know how to describe it, but watching these people riot in Ferguson, I just get this feeling that I need to type tonight. So many things are wrong with this I don’t know where to start. Rather than digging into the case itself, I truly have to think that someone or something wants this to escalate beyond anyone’s control. Why? Look at the way everything is being handled. They knew the verdict, and they expected some problems so why in the hell would you not be ready and lock that place down? I am talking a full military control. In this type of situation this is what our government is supposed to prevent and suppress. THIS is what I feel I pay my taxes for, too crush this type of violence and put a HALT to all of it in a matter of minutes. Do you agree with me? It almost seems as though something eerie is going on. Also, as George Bush put a squash on all media outlets covering the deaths of Americans in Iraq in 1991 and Obama just making up laws as he goes, why would they not crush the media escalating this?
Why would you not shut down the media hype over this crap?
Ahead of a grand jury’s decision over whether to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, police in the city of Ferguson have reportedly heavily increased their presence this week to ensure residents are adequately provoked.
In 1971, US President Richard Nixon closed the 'gold window', ending the free exchange of dollars for gold, guaranteed by the US in 1944 at Bretton Woods.
In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin has reopened the 'gold window', without asking Washington's permission.
