Eric Holder’s parting shot: We’re Racist.


Card-Block-590-LIFrom the Politico:

In a lengthy discussion ranging from his own exposure to the civil rights movement of the ’60s to today’s controversies surrounding the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven partly by race.

“There have been times when I thought that’s at least a piece of it,” Holder said, adding that “I think that the primary motivator has probably been political in nature … [but] you can’t let it deflect you from … your eyes on the prize.”

No, we’re driven by his ineptitude and complete lack of accomplishment during this do-nothing administration. Holder went on to say,

“…that between now and his departure, probably in early March when the Senate is expected to confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor, he will call for a lower standard of proof for civil-rights crimes. Such a change would make it easier for the federal government to bring charges in the case of a future Ferguson or Trayvon Martin.”

Oh, so he’s going to push for change which would allow civil rights prosecutions where there are no civil rights violations? How wonderful.  Because if something is too hard, we should just change the rules… .  Rules of evidence and burdens of proof?  Pfft!


Government Threatens Volunteers in Ferguson. UPDATED.

UPDATED:  Oath keeper Volunteers Thumb Nose at Ferguson PD:

UntitledUntitled2Nailed it.

Volunteer groups appear in Ferguson, to do what the Mayor and Governor could not, or would not do – provide protection to law-abiding citizens, and those volunteers are threatened by the police.  Under the guise that they are providing security without proper business permits… . .

238AB67800000578-2855736-image-14_1417427633377–  If individuals accept the services – consent to it – and are happy to have it (maybe even get documentation to that effect),

–  No payment is exchanged, and any services are voluntary,

– Open carry is not unlawful in Missouri…. .

Then a good guy with a gun is a deterrent anywhere.

Looks kinda like FIL.

Though, if I were a business owner in that situation, I would contract with any security if I could.  With an established company that that has insurance.  That have employees that are vetted and checked out.  Cases have been made for vicarious liability from the acts of trustees or volunteers… .  Damn lawyers.


Shawn Parcells: How forensics ‘expert’ without a medical degree assisted in Michael Brown’s autopsy.

ExpertCartoonMaybe he slept in a Holiday Inn Express before the autopsy.


Or, I am not a forensic pathologist, I only play one on TV… .

I seriously don’t know why the Brown family would have wasted their time and money on this “expert” with such shady credentials.

The Story:





Julie Bosman, NYT reporter who drops dime on Darren Wilson’s address, is scared.


Apparently Ms. Bosman (pictured) has been calling her local police as she feels harassed after revealing officer Wilson’s address in her employers rag, the New York Times Slimes. She reports that she has been contacted, harassed, and even receives anon deliveries to her home.

Links to Bosman’s irresponsible article here.

That’s too bad, if true.

The fact remains, she did reveal just enough to put Wilson in great danger.

Her employer later defended her in publishing Wilson’s home address saying that it was revealed back in August. I’m not buying it.

Even if Wilson’s address was revealed back then, that was before the juries no-bill and resulting riots. After Wilson’s attorney wisely counseled him to stay off the beat. After the guy remained in hiding for the last many months. After the “black rebels” offered a reward for Wilson’s location – not Ms. Bosman’s motivation – the Brown family themselves incited the masses (“…burn this bitch down…”) and 2200 members of the national guard were called out.

Bosman and the Times are wrong, obviously. Or they live in a left-wing fairyland, a place where liberals of their type think nothing of what could happen with irresponsible reporting. A place where they can push a liberal agenda. Or both.

This, in a time when one can, with only a name and city, utilize resources to easily see – and publish- the personal details of another. Down to the cars they drive, the vin numbers and plates, names of spouses, phone numbers, properties they own, professional licenses, voting affiliation, and all of the above on all of that persons adult children, siblings, cousins, parents, grandparents and more.

With maps.

The irony.

Campbell Robertson also co-reported with Bosman in the article revealing Wilson’s address.

Ferguson. A live feed. And a Shame.

ferguson-mo-back-offI am listening to live feeds from scanner traffic from Ferguson, and have reviewed alleged witness accounts, images, and media reports for the last three months.  Taking all of those for what they are worth, I may compile something, soon, as I have strong feelings on this matter.

This grand jury made their decision on all evidence that was presented.  They did their job.  A good job.

I understand the Grand Jury Process.  I support the Grand Jury Decision.  As I hear this decision, I hear reports of shots fired, things thrown, fires, I hear reports of windows being broken out, burglar alarms, looting, robberies and drive byes.  Shameful.  On the part of the protesters.  Looting at your local Walgreens, Family Dollar, and CVS, to name a few.  Somebody having a legitimate medical condition, a heart attack, that is trapped by a mob.

And now, I hear of shots fired at the Ferguson PD too.

I will put my attorney hat on later, but just wish to point out the silliness danger of the common mob.  Protect yourself and stay away from crowds of course.

In the context of this ridiculous scenario, liberal media to blame with their blood-dancing and support for protesters ridiculous “rules of engagement.”  As well, Holder, and Obama, for saying that this chaos only invites broader dialogue between law enforcement and those in his agenda.

Just listen to Obama’s speech this evening, and listen to the above feed, as I did.  You will understand.

Oh, and Chris Cuomo from CNN just got tear gassed.  That makes me happy.
