ERIC GARNER: MICHAEL BROWN II?

Another grand jury declines to indict police for an incident that ended with a Black man dead. Sounds pretty bad when you say it that way, doesn\’t it?  But it\’s not that simple.  The man, Eric Garner, was being arrested for selling cigarettes.  He argued with the police and then resisted arrest.  The officer who took him down – Daniel Pantaleo...

COVERING FOR LOUIS HEAD

This morning\’s Today Show did a two minute feature on Louis Head, the stepfather of Michael Brown.  It told us that charges are being considered because, minutes after he stood in front of an already-inflamed mob and started screaming “burn this bitch down”, members of the mob did just that to businesses, cars, and whatever else they could find to torch on...

FERGUSON\’S RACIST LIARS

Let\’s do a little supposing: -Suppose a Black man was accused of a shooting and killing an uarmed young man.  -And suppose White eye-witnesses – a bunch of them – came forth and swore under oath that the Black man killed that young man in cold blood, while he was begging for his life.  -And suppose the autopsy results showed that those eye-witness...

A CLASSIC CASE STUDY IN MEDIA BIAS

Who is Elizabeth Lauten?  Who is Terry Bean? Let\’s take them one at a time. Elizabeth Lauten Elizabeth Lauten was, until this week, a staff member for Stephen Fincher, and obscure congressperson from Tennessee.

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

I don\’t often agree with al Sharpton or his “National Action Network (NAN)”.  But on this one?  He\’s 100% correct. Heartland Brewery, a New York-based beer maker, has a seasonal brand called German Black Lager. Nothing wrong with that… except… it has decided to advertise the product by assuring prospective customers they will “be a...

THE FUNNIEST MICHAEL BROWN DEFENSE

Hard though it may be to believe, I have found something humorous in the Michael Brown shooting and its aftermath Here, as pulled from the transcript I found at P. J. Gladnick\’s blog for newsbusters.org,  is Eugene Robinson – er, excuse me, “PULITZER PRIZE WINNER Eugene Robinson, as he is always introduced on MSNBC, while he gives us his best Cheshire cat smile...

THE ZEMIR BEGIC BURIAL

It has everything to do with the Zemir Begic story being buried.  Zemir Begic is the Saint Louis man who was beaten with hammers and killed early Sunday Morning, allegedly by four Black and Latino teenagers – three of whom have been picked up so far (aged 15, 16 and 17). Yesterday I...

IRAN – LAUGHING AT US (LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD)

Keeping up with the Obama administration\’s failures is harder than keeping up with the Kardashians. Here is the latest information on one of Mr. Obama and Secretary of State Kerry\’s more consipicuously inept attempts to deal with Iran – a country that has added new meaning to dishonesty and poor faith. Excerpted from Adam Kredo\’s article at freebeacon.com: Iranon...

MICHAEL BROWN AND THE FURTHER POLARIZING OF THE USA

Evidently we are not sufficiently polarized along racial grounds.  So the Michael Brown shooting is being used to make good and sure that polarization is brought up to speed. First, a quick review of the facts. Michael Brown… …an 18 year old behemoth (6\’ 4″ tall, almost 300 lbs)… … with a police record his family is zealously guarding us from...

GAS PRICES

Yesterday, we filled up at Costco…and paid $2.49.9 a gallon.  I\’m figuring we\’re not far from $2.25.  And it\’s domestic oil doing it, not the oil of countries which hate our guts. Do you have a problem with this?  An environmental problem?  Maybe the same kind of problem people had when they believed Al Gore\’s prediction, in 2008...

HAVE YOU HEARD OF ZEMIR BEGIC?

Zemir Begic.  Did you ever hear that name?  Maybe yesterday or today? In case you did not, let me tell you who he is…or, more exactly, was.

THE PRESIDENTIAL LIE CONTEST

Ken Berwitz It\’s not entirely accurate. But it is very clever….and makes a point a lot of people – some of them all too belatedly – are on board with. From our pal Toy Insurance Bob: FamousPresidential Lies Contest LBJ: We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin)  Nixon: I am not a crook  GHWBush: Read my lips – No New...
