Ferguson update: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the official Michael Brown autopsy reveals: 1) An altercation within the police car with Brown being shot at close range. This squares with reports that Brown tried to grab Officer Darren Wilson’s gun. 2) That Brown was not shot running away from Wilson “or with his hands up.” (Forensic pathologist) & 3) That Brown had marijuana in his system.
Finally, from Wednesday’s WA Post: “Seven or eight African American eyewitnesses have provided testimony consistent with Wilson’s account, but none of them have spoken publicly out of fear for their safety.”
The Dems are so desperate that their new flier in Georgia has a photo of two black children holding signs that say “Don’t Shoot” and a message that reads: “If You Want To Prevent Another Ferguson In Their Future … Vote.” Here’s a Dem message you’ll never see: “If you want to be the next Dr. Benjamin Carson and not the next Michael Brown then study hard, don’t do drugs, don’t rob convenience stores and don’t fight cops!”
Mark Steyn on “Fox & Friends” Monday: “Election Day is one day a year, and the culture is the other 364 days a year. So if you’re not in there competing in the schools, competing in the pop culture, competing in the media, competing in the main-line churches, then the air we breathe becomes liberal.”
He’s right … let’s say Repubs win the Senate…
Will civics, free market economics & American Exceptionalism be taught in our schools? Will colleges have faculties that are not 90% liberal? Will the PC media be more honest? Will Hollywood stop producing garbage? Will there be no more hyphenated-Americans? Will DC policies encourage traditional families over single motherhood? And will entitlement reform and the debt finally be tackled?
Conservatives need to be elected but as Andrew Breitbart once said: “Politics is downstream from culture” and we’re way past politics alone saving America. So Mark Steyn is sadly correct, unless enough citizens engage in the cultural battles the only thing elections can do is slow the rate of our nation’s decline.
Zerobama isn’t kidding.
Breitbart’s Jonathan Strong reports that Zeroboy is taking bids from potential contractors capable of making a “surge scenario” of 9 million ID cards (green cards & work permits) within a year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.” For some perspective, the combined total population of ME, NH, RI, MT, DE, SD, AK, ND & VT is LESS than 9M!
But we’re not done.
Strong adds that the “estimated maximum for the entire contract is 34,000,000 cards.” Now add the previous 9 state total (about 8.6M) to the total population of CT, MS, AR, KS, NV, NM, NE, WV, ID, HI, WY & DC and that’s still LESS than 34M. The sad thing is (as AL Sen. Jeff Sessions points out) those most hurt economically will be minority U.S. citizens. But there is good news … some Obots are finally smelling the coffee! As O began to speak to a predominantly black audience at a campaign event in MD Sunday, many got up and walked out! It seems even they are tired of the same old BS. There may be hope for America yet!
Two appropriate stories from this past Sunday:
1) City officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho have threatened ordained ministers Donald & Evelyn Knapp with months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines if they decline to perform weddings for same-sex couples.
& 2) Houston Mayor Annise Parker was instrumental in the passage of an “Equal Rights Ordinance” that includes access to all public restrooms for those with differing “gender identities.” The city then subpoenaed sermons from 5 local pastors suspected of openly supporting the repeal of the ordinance. After a public outcry the city has backed off but is still demanding “private communications” between the pastors and church members with the mayor tweeting: “If the 5 pastors used pulpits for politics, their sermons are fair game.” But Reverend Jeremiah Wright and those of the cloth now pushing amnesty aren’t the least bit worried. Nor are any mosques that refuse to perform gay marriages.
They all know that First Amendment rights in America these days are only guaranteed for PC hypocrites!
In his weekly radio address on Saturday, Zerobama explained why he’s against a travel ban from West Africa: “Trying to seal off an entire region of the world — if that were even possible — could actually make the situation worse.”
ABC News headline Friday: “Africa Stems Ebola Via Border Closings, Luck” From the article: “Border closings may also be helping halt the spread of Ebola. Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal, all of which share borders with at least one of the three most affected countries, have closed those borders.”
Many other African nations have done so as well.
And this headline on Sunday from Judicial Watch: “Obama Plans to Let Ebola-infected Foreigners Into U.S. for Treatment” One source told Judicial Watch that “the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress.”
Either Zero is deliberately trying to harm America or the man is mentally ill. Or both.
Regardless, Judicial Watch has a proven track record for reliability so if this is true, IMPEACHMENT proceedings must begin immediately!
