#Ferguson: Has Obama Made it Worse?

I have yet to write about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, for one simple reason. I have not felt like wading into the mud that seems to be getting thicker every day. Even with Missouri National Guard now helping the Missouri Highway Patrol police the area, Monday night was still dangerous on the streets in Ferguson. Dozens were arrested and two people were shot by the protestors. We do not know how this is going to end up, but I believe I can safely say, it will not be good. Simply put, the situation in Ferguson is […]

Be Very Damn Careful With That Dam!

Yesterday, Fox News reported that the US planned further air strikes against the ISIS forces in northern Iraq, some of which were specifically to help Iraq regain control of Iraq’s largest dam which fell into ISIS hands a month ago. This morning another Fox News story reported that Kurdish forces have reportedly launched a ground offensive to seize control of Iraq’s strategic Mosul dam from Islamic militants. Upon reading the Fox article last night, I was reminded of a piece I’d read several days ago at Zero Hedge on the Mosul dam. This dam is a disaster waiting to happen. The […]

A Second Declaration of Independence

  Hat/Tip to David Shapiro at Breitbart.com.   When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to assume that their president, hostile to the principles that formed the nation and determined to act with malice toward its inhabitants by suppressing their rights and enabling its enemies to prosper in their attempts to destroy it, must be confronted, a rational response for the nation is to encumber itself no more with such a president and reject his authority and the acolytes who carry out his wishes. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men […]

#Ferguson: Valerie Jarrett Revealed as Orchestrating the Crisis

Hat/Tip to DW Ulsterman & Breitbart. It’s long been rumored that Presidential Adviser, Valerie Jarrett is the brains behind the Obama Presidency. Speculation surrounding the amount of influence she sways over Obama abounds, but the New York Times has released a story revealing that Jarrett has been in constant talks with Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, and civil rights leaders, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. According to Ulsterman and Breitbart, via the New York Times: But as Obama returned to the White House on Sunday, Jarrett assured members of the media that he will stay personally engaged with the situation. “He […]

ISIS has released a video showing American Journalist, James Foley reading a statement. Foley is kneeling, dressed in orange next to a man standing, dressed in black.

Navy Bans Bibles then Kicks Atheist Group to the Curb – Puts Bibles Back in Hotels

Hat/Tip to Tim Brown at the Freedom Outpost. Those tolerant lefties are at it again. This time, they tried to intimidate the Navy into removing Gideon Bibles from hotel rooms. Atheists from the Freedom from Religion Foundation had complained back in March to the US Navy that the Navy was unconstitutionally showing preference to Christianity. As a result, the Navy sent out a memo in June informing all lodge managers that any religious materials, including Bibles, would be removed from the rooms under “established procedures for the lost-and-found property.” However, upon a review of its policies, the Navy ordered that […]

Gowdy on Benghazi Investigation: “…we are going to do it methodically, professionally.”

Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. As we all know, Congressman and former Federal Prosecutor, Trey Gowdy has been appointed Chair of a select committee to investigate the events at Benghazi that led to the deaths of four American citizens, including our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. But true to his undefeated streak as a prosecutor, he is taking his time and not rushing into anything. After Congress returns from their August recess, Gowdy intends to begin holding hearings with the Benghazi Select Committee, most likely in early September. Gowdy has already promised to subpoena Hillary Clinton and compel her to testify, […]

#Ferguson: Sharpton says Christie bad for attending party, Obama gets a pass for attending Jazz concert…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. As usual, WeaselZippers sums it up nicely: Why does Sharpton think the Governor of New Jersey should cancel his plans because of what’s happening in Missouri? Shouldn’t he be outraged over Obama going to a concert during the riots? Via The Hill: The Rev. Al Sharpton slammed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for dancing with Jamie Foxx in the Hamptons over the weekend, while protests and police activity in Ferguson, Missouri, escalated. The potential 2016 candidate was attending a fundraiser. Also present and taking his turn on the stage was Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Sharpton told […]

#Ferguson: Obama sends Holder to Ferguson, Authorizes Yet ANOTHER Autopsy – Why?

Hat/Tip to Townhall.com. I suppose we can be thankful that President Obama didn’t say that if he had a son, he would look like Michael Brown. Instead, he sends his lackey, Attorney General, Eric Holder to Ferguson. And what does Holder do? Why he calls for a THIRD autopsy. Even though it’s being reported as the second autopsy, there have already been two. One by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office and a private one ordered by the family, as reported here at CH2.0. Here is the statement released by the Justice Department: “Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved […]

#Ferguson: Some insights into why the Quick Trip was burnt-”Snitches get Stitches”

One of the iconic images of the #Ferguson is the looting and burning of the Quick Trip convenience store… But why was this business so thoroughly looted and and destroyed?  The Conservative Treehouse has more… After the Quick Trip was destroyed the following message was spray painted on the side of the building: But to understand why the Quick Trip quick was chosen you need to listen to this conversation. In this video you can hear why.   The important understanding happens at :36 point of the conversation: #1 (On camera):  “Ferguson Market they talking about him stole some rillos. Bro, rillos […]

Obama Golfed During the Funeral of an American General Killed in Combat

For a while now, it’s been my theory that many of the changes that Obama is making in the military is to weaken it, and to make what’s left more amenable to being used against the American people.  There are times, however, when I really question that thinking.  This is one of them; an American General was killed in Afghanistan on August 5th.  Major General Harold Greene was laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. It is customary for the President, or at least the Vice President, attend such an event.  However, Barak Obama could not find the time for […]

#Ferguson: Autopsy Shows all Shots Fired From Front

In more #Ferguson news, another piece of the leftist narrative, that Michael Brown was shot in the back, has been debunked.  SooperMexican has more… From the New York Times [emphasis added]: Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found. One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, […]

#Ferguson: What do we know so far?

I’ve been waiting to discuss the events that have occurred in Ferguson, MO.  Like any emotionally charged situation, there are claims and counter-claims.   I tend to wait a bit and summarize what is known.  So, here is what we know about the situation in Ferguson. The “victim” in this situation is Michael Brown, aged 18.  Mr. Brown was seen on video robbing a local store. Here is a video, from FOX News, shown at the linked DC article… Here is more footage, from CNN… And, we also now know that this video was available for some time, but had not […]

You’re Never Going to Believe Who Built This

Many of you my age or older will remember AMC, or American Motors.   Formed out a merger between independent car makers Nash and Hudson in 1954, AMC first became know for manufacturing the Rambler make in the 50’s and 60’s.  By the early 70’s however, AMC was having increasing difficulty competing with the Big Three (GM, Ford, and Chrysler).  They tried some innovative things that worked, like the Javelin, Hornet, Concord, Spirit, Eagle and Gremlin (yes, they sold hundreds of thousands of them during the entire production run;1970-1978!), and some things that did not work at all, like the Pacer […]

Slinging In The Rain

“Obama, with his presidency crumbling, is like a petulant child who wants to pick up his marbles and leave.” (The Presidency is Breaking Obama Even As Obama Has Broken the Nation) “With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop.” (The media is turning on President Obama) “Barack Obama has played almost 200 rounds of golf, no matter what crisis is ongoing.

A week ago,  a Rabbi was shot and killed in Miami Beach while walking to services.  The local NBC affiliate has more… Please note that another nearby Synagogue was vandalized recently with a swastika and the word “Hamas.” In the meantime, we have chronicled the rampant anti-semitism of the political left.

DUI D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg bought 23 gallons of vodka in 15 months, at one store

Rosemary Lehmberg says she doesn’t have a drinking problem. Her credit card receipts tell a different story. When going through filings he found receipts from seven different Twin Liquors stores. They show Lehmberg’s credit card was used to buy more than $3,000 in vodka. The 72 bottles purchased Total more than 23 gallons. “If somebody is buying 23 gallons of vodka within 15 months’ time, is caught with it, three times the legal limit all those things, being that coherent, all suggest that Ms. Lehmberg has probably had some sort of problem for a long time,” O’Brien charged. No wonder […]

Want to Stop Those Annoying Facebook Auto-play Videos? Here is How

I think auto-play videos are one of the great menaces of social media.  I try to avoid them whenever possible.   However, Facebook has been using them as a feature, not a flaw.  These can be annoying on a PC, but they can be hazardous to data plans when on mobile devices.  So, here is a video showing you how to turn off those pesky auto-play videos… I know I’ve been on this anti-Facebook roll as of late.  I would stop if Facebook would stop being so annoying.
