Senate Democrats To Hold “Ferguson” Hearings

When it came to hearings on the tragedy in Bengazi, or the use of the IRS as a political weapon, the Democrats have been anything but cooperative.

But when it comes to a hearing for a robber, who assaulted a police officer, and those who rioted and burned businesses because of him, Democrat Senator, Dick Durbin, can’t wait to form a hearing to bring attention to them. A press release from his office states:

On Tuesday, December 9th, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights, will hold a hearing entitled “The State of Civil and Human Rights in the United States.” The hearing will examine the status of key civil and human rights issues, including criminal justice reform, voting rights, and police-community relations.

Following enactment of legislation like the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, bipartisan initiatives to protect civil and human rights have continued, including ongoing efforts to reform federal sentencing and restore federal voting rights for ex-offenders. Nonetheless, significant roadblocks remain. Racial disparities persist at many stages of the criminal justice system. Many states have enacted voting laws making it harder for minority and other voters to cast their ballots. And this year’s events in Ferguson, Missouri have highlighted the continued need to reevaluate and reform police practices, including the militarization of state and local law enforcement. This hearing will explore how Congress and the Executive Branch can build on recent successes and address ongoing civil and human rights challenges.”

It would seem that the political left are only interested in hearings that help spread, or distract from, their political ideology. Instead of the ones that expose their hypocrisy, and hold them accountable.

Palestinian and Communist Groups Join Ferguson Protests

As the Ferguson protests continue around the country, more and more radical groups are joining the ranks.

CBS reports that Palestinian and Communist groups have joined the protests in Portland, Oregon:

“Police in Portland used pepper spray and arrested seven people after hundreds of demonstrators roamed the city and blocked traffic Tuesday night while protesting a grand jury decision not to indict a Missouri police officer in the killing of an 18-year-old.

“…As with Occupy, the vast majority of protesters preached peace, but a fringe group of people — some covering their faces with black bandannas — advocated violence and confrontations with police. And like Occupy, the original protest drew a disparate group of people together, not all of whom agreed with one another.

“Military veterans called for peace, a communist group called for the overthrow of capitalism, and a group calling for a Palestinian state all held court during a series of speeches on the steps of the state Justice Center in Portland.

But the radical leftists are not just contained to Portland, Oregon.

In Oakland California, a revolutionary Communist called for a protest against the “murderous pigs”. (Video) In New York City, a 62 year old Communist shouted chants to the crowd in Times Square. And recently Palestinians sent a message of solidarity to the Ferguson protesters.

As disturbing as this is, the sad reality is that the Ferguson movement has had radical leftest support for some time. At least in St. Louis, Missouri.

Even before the Grand Jury verdict was announced Communists handed out leaflets to students at St. Louis University encouraging that “Amerikkka” should be “brought to a halt” if Officer Wilson wasn’t indicted.

As far back as August, during the first riots in Ferguson, Palestinian groups sent Ferguson protests tips on how to protest.

If the number of radical leftest continues to grow inside the Ferguson movement, it will quickly change to one that seeks to destroy Capitalism and America as we know it.

EXPOSED>>> St. Louis Public School Lesson Plan on #Ferguson and Gentle Giant #MikeBrown – Part 2

Mike Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014.

Michael Brown robbed a local Ferguson convenience store shortly before his death. Then Brown smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face and wrestled the officer for his gun before he was shot dead.

At least seven black Ferguson witnesses corroborated Officer Darren Wilson’s story. Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted by the St. Louis County grand jury after an extensive investigation.

But facts be damned.
St. Louis public schools have put together a lesson plan for students on how to teach students about Ferguson and Gentle Giant Mike Brown.

** Part One is here.

Here’s more on the St. Louis Ferguson plan…

On page seven teachers are urged to use Hip-Hop music to teach about Ferguson.
(Refrain from using Mike Brown’s filthy rap lyrics)

On page 8 the teachers are urged to discuss racial inequality and the modern racism.

On page 9 teachers are urged to discuss the generations of racist laws in America.

Finally on page 12 teachers are to discuss the case for reparations.

This is an example of the racist porn they are teaching students in the St. Louis region.

Racist Protest Leader Praised By BET Calls For Violence Against Police “Start Shootin’ Them B*tches!”

Monday 25th 2014, the day of the Mike Brown verdict, BET aired a 1/2 hour special focused on the young activists that are leading the #Ferguson movement. The show was hosted by Marc Lamont Hill and it featured the group ‘Lost Voices’

Prior to the taping of this special Lost Voices had already been blamed for violence with in the movement. Witnesses identify members of the group as those who assaulted a fellow protester during a meeting earlier this month. Another member was caught on tape spitting in a man’s face outside a Rams game.

Did BET know about this and portray them as peaceful activists anyway or did they not do due diligence before producing this piece? The same questions apply to Marc Lamont Hill.

Today even more disturbing video has surfaced. Maggio News captured a woman who appears to be Lost Voices leader Dasha Jones on video calling for police to be shot just after the verdict.

Jones, who is heavily featured in the BET special, is known to carry an upside down American flag like the woman in the video who screams:

“Hate all you white motherfuckers!!”

Looking and gesturing toward police the woman then shouts:

“Start shootin’ them bitches!!”

See The Video Here.

I’m calling on Marc Lamont Hill and BET to address this dangerous rhetoric.

SHOCK VIDEO – Heart Attack Victim Denied Help From #Ferguson Police, Then Tear Gassed.

Blogger Victor Maggio has been in the mix in Ferguson all week providing us with truly amazing video.

While documenting the mayhem of Monday night Victor captured what appears to be a tragic mistake by the Ferguson Police Department.

Several protesters attempted to get a woman who was having a medical emergency to safety. Carrying the woman, they ran toward the police line screaming, “She’s having a heart attack!”

Unfortunately, in all the confusion and craziness, the only thing police saw was people rushing the line. That’s when all hell broke loose.

You can read Victor’s account and see the video below:
From Maggio News

Front Line Ferguson: The protests taking place in front of the Ferguson Police Department on November 25, 2014 angered many people for a reason other than the Mike Brown verdict. Many saw the shocking incident involving a woman that was having a heart attack. She was being carried by five protesters towards the Ferguson Police seeking help from officers, the men carrying her are heard screaming in the video, “She is having a heart attack!” They promptly responded by launching tear-gas and flash bang grenades at the protesters while carrying the woman. They quickly dropped her on the street and ran leaving the woman on the ground. She was dragged off some time later. Her status is unknown at this time.

UPDATE: If this was video of an actual heart attack – the lynch mob made it impossible for the woman to receive assistance.

4.5 Million Problems But a Snitch Aint One – Al Sharpton Dodges Questions About Unpaid Taxes (VIDEO)

Earlier this year news broke that in the mid 1980’s Reverend Al Sharpton acted as a federal informant as a means to avoid charges in a cocaine bust. The good Reverend even went so far as to wear a wire.

Recently new allegations have surfaced that Rev Al Sharpton has failed to pay 4.5 million dollars in taxes and or tax liens from 2009.

With Sharpton’s record of throwing others under the bus to save his own ass, we attempted to find out if snitching was part of the plan to clear up his tax issues.

Progressives Today reporter Adam Sharp caught up with Sharpton in St. Louis on Tuesday and asked him that very question.

Video of that brief interview can be seen below.

#FERGUSON Protesters Accept “Donations” While Mike Brown’s Grave Remains Unmarked

Amid calls for the officer to receive the death penalty, awards and talk show appearances, marches, a brawl and a trip to Geneva decrying his body on the street for four hours, it seems no one took the time to get a headstone for Michael.
Meanwhile those out in the streets protesting, the ones that claim they care the most about Mike Brown are soliciting donations via Paypal, Amazon Wish Lists and Wedding Registry’s. Some asking on a daily basis for money for food, bail, equipment and supplies. Yet none of them have used ANY of those funds to get a proper headstone for Mike Brown.

It goes to show that the majority of those protest leaders don’t give two craps about Mike Brown. They are all about blowing up their own name and filling up their own pockets.
Shame on them.

Obama: “Hillary Would Be A Great President”

HOImage PolitisSpa

A day after Hillary Clinton endorsed President Obama’s executive action on immigration, The India Times reports that President Obama is paying Hillary Clinton lip service by saying she would be a great President:

US President Barack Obama today said Hillary Clinton would be a formidable Democratic candidate and a great president if she decided to run for the 2016 election.

“…I am very interested in making sure that I’ve got a Democratic successor. So I’m gonna do everything I can, obviously, to make sure that whoever the nominee is is successful. If she decides to run, I think she will be a formidable candidate and I think she’d be a great president,” Obama told the ABC news in an interview.”

Considering most of the Democrat candidates avoided Obama like the plague before the mid-term elections believing he was bad luck. Combined with the fact that there is no loved lost between President Obama and Hillary Clinton. One is let to wonder if President Obama’s endorsement of Hillary is just a matter of ‘I scratch your back you scratch mine’, or a deliberate act of sabotage.

 

 

Progressives Outraged Over Bill To Force Students To Watch “Patriotic” Film

Considering President Obama continually shows disrespect for the United States and the principles of liberty it stands for, it should be no surprise that other Progressives dislike the nation as well.

For instance, Newsmax reports that Florida Progressives are up in arms over a bill that would require students to watch a patriotic film:

 “Florida State Sen. Alan Hays has triggered a firestorm of controversy by introducing a bill to require eighth- and 11th-graders watch conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary, “America: Imagine The World Without Her.”

The Orlando Weekly called the film “conservative agitprop,” warning that D’ Souza is “anti-Obama, anti-progressive [and] anti-liberal.”

An Orlando Sentinel columnist wrote that the film illustrated that “if you could cash in on crazy, Florida would be the richest state in America.”

But in an interview with Newsmax TV this summer, Hays and D’Souza emphasized that they were only asking for balance in the classroom.

D’Souza pointed to the fact that Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11 and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” are “routinely shown in schools as an educational tool to illuminate people and foster debate.”

Considering the Progressives are pushing the adoption of Common Core standards in public schools which is filled with decidedly anti-American propaganda, one is left to wonder if the idea of making students watch a pro-American film is either a good start, or just too little…too late.

Civil War? Harry Reid Tells White House To “Get a Life”

Harry ReidImage The Washington Free Beacon

It’s not all hugs and kisses in Progressive paradise lately. The National Review reports that Senator Harry Reid recently told the White House to “Get a Life”:

It seems that it’s not all hugs and kisses in Progressive paradise lately. The National Review reports that Senator Harry Reid recently told the White House to “Get a Life”:

“The New York Timesreports that the rift between Reid and the Obama administration over David Krone, Reid’s top staff member, who made a series of highly critical remarks about the president earlier this month.

Reid also appears furious at the White House for their targeting of his top aide and close friend. ”They should just get over it,” he told the Times. “I have a good relationship with the president. This is all staff driven. Get a life. Forget about this.”

It appears the prema-donna that is President Obama doesn’t appreciate criticism from anyone. If if it’s from a staff member on the Democrat team.
