I guess crime Does pay, at least in Ferguson.

First, Michael Brown robbed a store. Then he assaulted a policeman, fighting for the officer’s gun.

The officer was left badly bruised and worried he might lose consciousness.

Only when Brown charged once again did the officer fatally shoot him. As I show below, there is no debating the facts about the August 2014 shooting.

Yet, what has Ferguson, Missouri done?

On Saturday it was revealed that they “secretly” awarded Brown’s family a “wrongful death claim” of $1.5 million.

But if that doesn’t get you angry, look who is getting the money.

Center for American Progress kerfuffle accidentally reveals Palestinians were advising demonstrators in Ferguson

American Thinker

Oops!  As a byproduct of an internal dispute at the far-left think-tank the Center for American Progress (CAP), it has been revealed that Palestinian advisers were brought into the Ferguson, Missouri demonstrations to advise the rioters.  Exactly who paid for them to apparently fly halfway around the world (or otherwise build “strong relationships”) and stick their noses into an American political dispute is unclear, though it has been bandied about that George Soros has played a major role in funding the #BlackLivesMatter movement that is ginning up black anger, and presumably 2016 election turnout for Hillary.

Dear Democrats, Your America Sucks

The American Spectator

To the Democratic Party, and specifically those of you responsible for shaping federal policies over the last seven years and our cultural institutions over a far longer time…

Great job.

You’ve succeeded beyond your wildest dreams in your efforts to, as the front man for your current operation called it, “fundamentally transform America.” It’s been seven years with said front man in charge, and those of us not in on your game are staring slack-jawed at what you’ve made of this country.

Treason Is Too Nice of a Word

Freedom Outpost

Many people believe the old saying that people shouldn’t be afraid of government, but government should be afraid of the people. It sounds good on the surface, and, to some degree, it makes sense; however, I don’t think it’s true. I’m not saying people should live in abject fear of their governments by any means; it’s just that, well, to be honest, I think our government is scared to death of us, and they will do whatever it takes to keep us from exposing them. I would argue that their fear of exposure is the number one motivating factor behind their attacks on the first and second amendments. Their fear of us discovering the truth of just how deep their deception runs, has led to the creation of the massive militarized police force, and the attempts to silence patriots by labeling us domestic terrorists. Their actions reek of treason against the American people and its due time we take charge of this mess and hold them accountable. This article will highlight ten of the most treasons acts.

Holder Prepared To Dismantle Ferguson Police Dept…If Necessary…

Weasel Zippers

And now we get to the heart of it, it’s all about an exercise of federal government control, not about the facts. As we reported earlier, the DOJ report on the police department was twisted to enhance the supposedly ‘racist’ nature of the department.

WASHINGTON, March 6 (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday the Justice Department would use its full authority to demand police reforms in Ferguson, Missouri, including possibly going so far as dismantling the department accused of racial bias.

“We are prepared to use all the power that we have … to ensure that the situation changes there,” Holder told reporters.

Asked if that included dismantling the Ferguson Police Department, Holder said, “If that’s what’s necessary, we’re prepared to do that.”

Civil rights lawyers have previously said the county could absorb the functions of the Ferguson Police Department.

The Justice Department issued a report this week that found that police in Ferguson overwhelmingly arrested and issued traffic citations to black residents, creating a “toxic” environment with its policing practices.

When liberals become totalitarians and Republicans become toadies

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD

To paraphrase the sage of Oklahoma, Will Rogers, liberals used to be people who did good with their own money.

To paraphrase former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, liberals learned that, by doing so, they would quickly run out of their own money. Whereas, through government, they could satisfy either their altruism or their guilt and do good on a much larger scale using other people’s money.

Unfortunately for them, implementing “social justice” by legal mandate, that is, transforming a liberal philosophy into liberal politics, forced them to swim in the same dogmatic waters as communists, where liberals had difficulty drawing a distinction between their policies and those endorsed by the communists.

That dilemma was temporarily resolved by the Great Depression, an economic calamity arguably caused by government through the inappropriate action of the Federal Reserve, which resulted in the “throw out the bums” election of liberal Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt, who ironically promoted government as the solution. Knowing they could not be elected to high office by truthfully articulating their aims, American communists joined the Roosevelt Administration in droves.

The Dark Forces Behind America’s Racial Jihad

CFP

The recent racial hysteria that has engulfed Ferguson, Missouri, and other parts of the United States has shown that Islamist-type jihad is not the only kind of “holy war” plaguing America. The unspoken jihad – or intifada – that plagues America is a racial jihad engendered by radical black urban racial terrorists. This jihad is created, nurtured, perpetrated and perpetuated by the unholy trinity of the mainstream media, black supremacists, and cowardly, spineless and feckless white politicians. And it is a jihad that threatens to engulf America into a racial firestorm not seen since the War Between the States (a.k.a., the Civil War).
