THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from the President of the United States, Barack Obama.  On Tuesday night Mr. Obama was in Chicago making a speech about his great accomplishment in effectively granting amnesty to something like 5 million illegal aliens.  But, since he did not unilaterally grant full and total amnesty to them, the take-no-prisoners wing of amnesty advocates was...

BENJAMIN WATSON\’S FACEBOOK POST

Benjamin Watson is a professional athlete – a tight end for the National Football League\’s New Orleans Saints. He has written a facebook post about Ferguson.  It is honest – sometimes painfully so.  It is introspective.  And it is well worth your while to read.  I don\’t agree with the religious convictions espoused in Mr...

IS MICHAEL BROWN A MCGUFFIN?

When explaining how movies are made, the great director, Alfred Hitchcock, used to talk about a “McGuffin”.   A McGuffin is something in a movie that has no intrinsic value in and of itself, but is used to further the plot.  An excellent example would be The Maltese Falcon, where the quest for a small, falcon, made of precious materials, is the reason for...

WHY IS CNN INFLAMING FERGUSON?

Earlier today cnn.com\’s lead story was a big picture of Michael Brown\’s father with a headline telling us that his son\’s character was being crucified (you can read my take on this in the previous blog). Now it has been replaced by “Michael Brown\’s mom:  \’This could be your child\'” What\’s the next one going to be? “Message To...

CRUCIFYING MICHAEL BROWN\’S CHARACTER

This is a blog I don\’t particularly like writing.  But we tell the truth here, so it\’s in. Here is a quote from Michael Brown\’s father, speaking of the grand jury conclusion while being interviewed by that paradigm of racial tolerance and personal integrity, al sharpton: “Itjust let me know that where we live is not what we thought, or what Ithought. It\’s...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Cornell Brooks, the President of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Sitting down?  I hope so. Mr. Brooks was asked about Michael Brown\’s stepfather, Louis Head, screaming “Burn the bitch down”, which was immediately followed by the people around him screaming it, which was soon followed by a large...

GRUBER GOOBERS

For whatever it is worth to you, I\’ve come up a name for people who are every bit as stupid as Jonathan Gruber thinks they are – which, sad to say, includes an awful lot of people… …like, for example, anyone who believes any new promises or projections about ObamaCare, even after knowing that President Obama lied about whether you could keep your policy, keep your...

MICHELLE MALKIN DECONSTRUCTS PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S FERGUSON COMMENTS

It is never a surprise to find fact-filled, fully referenced, well written, logical material from Michelle Malkin.  And her latest column, which puts the wood to President Obama\’s comments regarding Ferguson, is no exception. Please read it all by clicking here.  But, for the moment, here is a key segment: Onlyafter expending 756 words on the need to “understand”...

SHOULD GOVERNOR NIXON RESIGN?

Jay Nixon is the Governor of Missouri.  And, in that capacity, he has mishandled the Michael Brown/Darren Wilson incident so completely and so disastrously that it is not unfair to ask whether he should step down. Right from jump street, Nixon\’s actions have pandered to the race hustlers and the anarchists who, aided and abetted by his actions, have spent the last three and a half...

FERGUSON: WE FINALLY KNOW WHO THE REAL CULPRITS ARE

I thank those nice folks who marched through Ferguson last night, for telling us who is really responsible for racism in the United States. Here\’s your answer: Ok, now that this is settled, I have a question:  do you think these geniuses care even 1% about Michael Brown or Darren Wilson?  Or do they care about the cameras and microphones all over Ferguson?

DANA MILBANK\’S “ANALYSIS” OF THE MCULLOCH PRESS CONFERENCE

Washington Post columnist, and blinders-on leftward suck-up, Dana Milbank has written a piece about Prosecutor Robert McCulloch\’s press conference regarding the grand jury decision in Ferguson. I tried to read it through.  I really did.  But how do you deal with something that starts with: Fergusonreminds us that we still have a race problem in America. But the faceof this...

FERGUSON TONIGHT: AN EASY QUESTION TO ANSWER

I just heard a commentator speculate on whether things will be as bad in Ferguson, Missouri tonight as they were last night. That\’s easy. Short of a shooting war, things will be better.  Not because anything about Michael Brown and Darren Wilson has changed, but because there are no more stores to loot and burn down. Michael Brown has been a cause celebre for many people. ...

ABOUT THE “PEACEFUL” MICHAEL BROWN FAMILY

I\’m glad that Michael Brown\’s father called for peace.  And I wish that were the only thing that was said by Brown\’s family members. But it wasn\’t, and the media venues claiming so are lying to you. Here is a CNN video, which I pulled from an article at mediaite.com. If you watch the video, you will find that…...

MSNBC & FERGUSON\’S “COMPELLING IMAGES”

I just put on the TV for a few moments.  Turning to MSNBC, I caught NewsNation, hosted by Tamron Hall, a moment before she went to commercial.  Ms. Hall ended the segment by showing us “some of the more compelling moments” from last night in Ferguson. What we saw were images of a peaceful march, someone holding a sign saying “End Police Brutality”...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, who started his special coverage of the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury decision this way: “Thegrand jury in Ferguson, Missouri has failed to come up with anindictment for the police officer in the shooting of the unarmedblack teenager Michael Brown.” Fascinating.  To me, when people fail to do...
