A distraction. You would think we would all be used to it by now.
But these distractions are so overwhelming, so "important", so craved by the American public, that we MUST watch them, we MUST critique them, we MUST "understand" what happened. You are programmed to think you want to know until a week, two weeks later and then, wait a minute, what about that amnesty issue?
Too late. That's old news, isn't it?
Something else comes down the line to distract.
We need something to get us to the football playoffs and the holiday season so here it is. An event that was, really, a non-event. According to witness testimony the homicide was justified. Was it?
Eric Holder will now take his turn at the podium for Chapter 2 as the amnesty issue must REALLY be ignored for awhile longer.
What about those 12 million illegal immigrants that just got added to the welfare roles, MSM?
With so many clear-cut cases throughout the country of police officers killing or maiming innocent black civilians, why does the media always choose to focus on ambiguous cases?
Prior to Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Trayvon Martin’s death at the hands of George Zimmerman dominated the news cycle. Like the Brown/Wilson case, the Martin/Zimmerman case was anything but clear-cut.
While everyone is tuned into Ferguson (what a joke) and the weather..... White House quietly releases plans for 3,415 regulations ahead of Thanksgiving holiday
From the air you breath to the puddle in your driveway; education, medical, all foods to include even wine flavoring, guns, new regs for tractors, trucks, trailers, tires, reduced medical and dental exp (tax)

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attended a lunch with influential members of the Jewish community hosted by former Democratic Leadership Council chairman and mega-philanthropist Michael Steinhardt, according to the New York Observer.
After listening to concerns that his association with the tea party movement could potentially wreak havoc on his prospects should he run for president in 2016, Cruz blamed the media for inventing "a new caricature" that portrays him and some Republicans as "crazy."
A discussion between CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and RT’s Anissa Naouai degraded into a tense back and forth on Friday, resulting in Naouai’s criticisms of CNN and its coverage of international affairs being cut from the finalized interview that was broadcast.
After repeated questions which, according to Naouai, implied her impartiality was lacking, the RT host responded by questioning Amanpour’s own impartiality and potential conflicts of interest when it comes to US military interventions.
These comments never made it on air.
Ben Swann speaks to Naouai herself for a reaction.
I have been frustrated about this since the latest set of riots.
The media picked this "Officer involved shooting" because it was a divisive issue. Because divisive politics is what fuels the media machine in this country. Because tribal "Us against Them" narratives are what sells.
They didn't pick Eric Garner, what happened two weeks prior! AND WE HAVE BEEN COMPLICIT! This is Trayvon Martin all over again!
And liberals have been complicit!!! Where is the outrage about Eric Garners cold blooded murder???
Liberals don't care about him, because he owned a business, sold cigarettes, and didn't pay his taxes!
They don't care, because like a man, he stood up bravely against the leviathan and said "It ends today"! And where is the indictment of his cold blooded murderer??? Nobody knows! Nobody cares, because they are to busy talking about Mike Brown, the convenience store thug, and whether or not he deserved to die!
UPDATE: November 27, 2014
CLIP: Info From First Interview Of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson
Whole Broadcast Below (11/26/2014)
For Immediate Release | Tuesday, November 25, 2014
Dear Sen. Paul,
We agree with you that Congress should obey the Constitution. We should never engage in foreign wars without a congressional declaration of war, a restraint on military action put in place by our Founding Fathers to ensure lawmakers never send our troops to war without deliberation.
But a constitutional war in the Middle East is just as bloody, destructive, and likely to incite terrorism as an unconstitutional war.
Our half-century of interventions in the Middle East have been a colossal failure. We have provided arms, military training, and subsidies to virtually every country in the region, inciting continual war and unrest. This has created a breeding ground for international terrorists that pose a real danger to our country and the world — one that would not have existed had we kept our noses out of the affairs of other countries.
U.S. military interventions have put our troops in harm's way, separated them needlessly from their families, and led to tens of thousands of American deaths and casualties — plus many more losses for innocent citizens of foreign countries.
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. […]
Quickly I'm coming upon emergency for my cat Hopper.
I have a two and a half year old male cat who was in healthy until a week and a half ago when he didn't so much eat but devoured a bird. Thirty minutes after Hopper ate the bird, he threw it up. I cleaned up bones, feathers and the bird. He threw up a few more times where each time he did there was small yellow puddles of liquid.
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.
