New Black Panthers Plotted To Bomb Gateway Arch, Assassinate St. Louis Prosecutor, Ferguson Police Chief… Foiled By EBT Card…

My favorite part of this story: They wanted to buy two more bombs but couldn’t afford it until one of their girlfriend’s got her welfare payment.

Update to this story.

Via Stl. Today:

Two men indicted last week on federal weapons charges allegedly had plans to bomb the Gateway Arch — and to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson — the Post-Dispatch has learned.

Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.

The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished. […]

One of the defendants’ plans, the sources said, included planting a bomb inside the observation deck at the top of the Arch. It was not clear how they could have gotten a bomb past airport-style security screening for rides up.

It also wasn’t clear, the sources said, whether the men intended to use bombs as the means to kill McCulloch and Jackson. Both officials became targets of national criticism and protests after Brown’s killing.

Local and federal authorities have served search warrants at two buildings, one in the 2500 block of Hampton Avenue in St. Louis and the other in the 1500 block of Reale Avenue in north St. Louis County, but the associated documents were sealed.

Holder Promises Liberal Activists He’s Going To Aggressively Investigate Ferguson Police After Grand Jury Decision…

Holder

Holder is never one to pass up a chance to stoke racial tensions.

WASHINGTON, Nov 26 (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told civil rights activists the Justice Department would aggressively investigate police practices in Ferguson, Missouri, after a grand jury declined to indict a white officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager, two of the activists said on Wednesday.

In a phone call late on Monday, Holder, the country’s top law enforcer, said the Justice Department was “moving strongly” in its investigation of police patterns and practices, said Barbara Arnwine, executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, who was on the call.

Laura Murphy, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington legislative office, who was also on the call, said Holder is “very conscious of it needing to move quickly.”

A Justice Department spokesman on Wednesday confirmed a call took place.

NAACP President: Brown’s Stepfather Urging People To “Burn This Bitch Down” Was Not “A Call For Violence”…

Good grief.

Via Newsbusters:

On Tuesday night, Cornell Brooks, president of the NAACP, appeared on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront to discuss the shooting death of Michael Brown and dismissed calls for violence by a member of Michael Brown’s immediate family as inciting violence.

Burnett played video of Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, telling a crowd of protestors to “burn this bi*** down” after the grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson and asked Brooks if “that served as a call for violence?” Rather than condemn Brown’s stepfather’s highly charged rhetoric, the president of the NAACP proclaimed “I don’t think that was a call for violence or it caused violence.”

Liberal Organizer: Police “Would Sooner Murder” Protesters “Than Allow Them A Small Amount of Dignity”..

How many protesters did the police kill?

Via Media Trackers:

 The leader of a prominent community organizing group in Wisconsin, and a blogger for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, has taken to Facebook to condone the violent outburst in Ferguson, Missouri on Monday night after a grand jury found no probable cause to charge a police officer in the fatal shooting of a young man who had just robbed a convenience store and assaulted the officer.

declared Jennifer Epps-Addison, the head of Wisconsin Jobs Now, on Facebook. Epps-Addison wrote that the Missouri criminal justice system, which worked closely with the federal government, “would sooner murder” the protesters “than allow them a small amount of dignity.”

St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch said in a press conference Monday night that local officials worked closely with federal investigators through every step of the probe. It was a grand jury of citizens from Missouri that found no probable cause for prosecutors to press charges against Darren Wilson, the police officer who claimed self-defense in the shooting.

In the aftermath of the announcement, police officers claimed they “came under heavy automatic weapon fire” according to USA Today, and at least two police cars were torched while buildings and restaurants were vandalized or looted.

981 Missouri Black Babies Have Been Aborted Since Michael Brown’s Death, No Riots…

Where’s the outrage??

Via Truth Revolt:

To illustrate the utter hypocrisy and injustice pervading the black community following the death of Michael Brown, LifeNews published the depressing reality that 981 black babies have been aborted in Missouri since that fateful day back in August-and not a single person has rioted over their wrongful deaths.

LifeNews published the numbers in response to a blog post from a pro-life advocate in Missouri named Reverend Katherine. She wrote:

Since the day that Michael Brown died [Aug 9, 2014], another 981 Black Missourians have died; 9 per day, every day since then. These Black Missourians were unarmed, innocent, and had no ability to defend themselves and died in plain sight. But there is no outrage, no riots, not one protest.

This is exactly what people want as they’re shopping for the holidays…

Via Washington Examiner:

Shoppers this holiday season will encounter a lot more Obamacare.

The Department of Health and Human Services is set to announce a new partnership Wednesday with retail stores, pharmacies and popular websites that will allow them to better spread the word about open enrollment season, according to Politico.

Westfield Shopping Centers, the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and the XO Group will carry the new outreach approach on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday to highlight how consumers can sign up for healthcare during enrollment season.

Open enrollment season began on Nov. 15 and ends on Feb. 15.

The Obama administration is excited about the new partnerships and their potential for reaching Americans, “whether consumers are shopping at a mall, online or at their community pharmacy,” HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said.

Politico: “Is The Tea Party Ready To Chill Out?”

Via Politico:

Most of their candidates were crushed this year, even as their party won big. Now, many tea party activists are embracing a strategy for 2016 that’s strikingly at odds with the movement’s take-no-prisoners approach.

It’s time, they say, to show a little restraint.

In interviews, more than a dozen conservative leaders said the activist right needs to be pickier about which Republican incumbents it challenges in primaries, acknowledging its total wipeout in primary challenges to resurgent establishment Republicans.

“I would generally urge my conservative friends to not focus on the primaries as much as on open races,” said Richard Viguerie, a veteran tea party operative. “There’s some primaries you have to go out there — and you should — but I wouldn’t spend as much energy and resources on incumbents, particularly for Senate.”

Though many of the conservatives noted that just the threat of a primary challenge can pull a mainstream Republican senator to the right, some questioned the wisdom of targeting relatively reliable conservatives this year, such as Kansas’ Pat Roberts and Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell. As a general rule, they said, the tea party should only go after Republican incumbents who are to the left of their state’s electorate. They mentioned New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte, Illinois’ Mark Kirk and Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey — Republicans representing liberal or moderate electorates – as senators up for reelection in 2016 who may deserve a pass on those grounds.

The White House And Congress Raided Hundreds Of Millions From Anti-Bioterrorism Funds…

161605624

Of course they did.

Via Daily Signal:

Congress and the Obama White House looked for billions of dollars a few years ago to offset the costs of a legal settlement with black farmers and American Indians, to increase education aid to the states and to develop a vaccine for swine flu.

To get those billions, they looked to the same coffer: Project BioShield, a $5.6 billion fund created specifically to prepare America for a bioterrorist attack and develop treatments for deadly viruses such as Ebola.

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., warned that the BioShield fund was not supposed to be raided as a source of “Monopoly money for politicians.”

However, a review of documents by The Daily Signal found that Congress and the Obama administration have taken or tried to take millions from Project BioShield to pay for priorities that had nothing to do with defending the nation from bioterrorism.

Singer Pharrell Williams: Why Aren’t We Talking About Michael Brown’s “Bullyish” Behavior?

Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh arrive at the 56th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles

Wait, a celebrity actually said this?

Via The Root:

Grammy Award-winning producer Pharrell Williams has previously gotten flak for his comments on race, such as when he told Oprah that “the new black doesn’t blame other races for our issues.” But that didn’t stop the singer-songwriter from voicing his thoughts on Monday’s grand jury decision in Ferguson, Mo., although he said he didn’t want to “get … in trouble.”

In an extensive interview with Ebony, the star wondered why there wasn’t more discussion about why Michael Brown exhibited the behavior he did in the convenience store, which Williams described as “bullyish.”

“It looked very bullyish; that in itself I had a problem with,” Williams said, referring to released surveillance video that allegedly shows Brown forcefully stealing cigarillos from a store shortly before he was fatally shot by Officer Darren Wilson. “Not with the kid, but with whatever happened in his life for him to arrive at a place where that behavior is OK. Why aren’t we talking about that?”

Turns Out Republicans CAN Defund Obama’s Amnesty Order…

U.S. President Obama speaks about Iraq and also the shooting in Ferguson, Missouri on Martha's Vineyard

The real question is: Will they? Probably not.

Via Hot Air:

As Allahpundit observed on Tuesday, congressional Republicans agree that Barack Obama’s executive actions involving the extension of legal status to millions of illegal immigrants have to be fought. The GOP is, however, split on what methods would be the most effective in blunting or even reversing Obama’s actions.

Congress’s more conservative elements believe that a series of symbolic measures should be used in conjunction with more operationally focused tactics. Some, like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), have suggested that Congress should not invite Obama to Congress for his annual State of the Union Address and that no presidential nominee should be confirmed until these orders are stricken.

…On Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart that a report via the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service contends that Rogers is incorrect. The CRS indicated that Congress can deny funds to the immigration enforcement agency despite the fact that it operates primarily on revenues collected through the imposition of fees.

Via Fox News:

Islamic jihadists worldwide have launched a barrage of recruitment messages amid the latest unrest in Ferguson, Mo., using Twitter accounts to call on African-Americans and others in the United States to join their cause.

Some messages urge direct revolt against the U.S. government, while others evoke the names of former black leaders – among them Malcolm X – in a bid to convince people of color that living under an Islamic caliphate is in their best interests.

“March against tyranny and arm yourselves against the true terrorists of our time: the US government,” says a tweet from a prominent Dutch jihadist in Syria going by the name of Israfil Yilmaz, and carrying “Ferguson Rising” and “Ferguson Decision” hashtags.

Another tweet from a user going by the name of Abu Hamza As Somaal says: “My fellow black community know that #Jihad is the only thing that will bring justice, respect and honor in (the) Ferguson decision.” ­This message is followed by the hashtag “Islamic State.”

HORROR! Family Dresses Man Up As A Man For His Funeral…

For some reason Huffington Post is outraged over this.

In a depressing reminder of the times in which we live and how far we still have to go to reach equality for everyone in the LGBT community, an Idaho transgender woman was presented as male in an open-casket funeral service this week.

Jennifer Gable, 32, reportedly died suddenly of a brain aneurysm while working her job at a Wells Fargo Bank on Oct. 9. At her funeral, Gable, who legally changed her name in 2007, was reportedly not referred to as Jennifer once.

Additionally, the late Gable’s family cut her hair short and presented her wearing a suit, and her obituary reportedly skipped the decade of her life she spent transitioning to live authentically as Jennifer.

“I am disgusted,” Stacy Dee Hudson reportedly posted on Facebook. “A great and dear friend’s mom went to the funeral today. It was not closed casket. They cut her hair, suit on. How can they bury her as Geoff when she legally changed her name. So very sad. Jen you will be missed and people who know you know that you are at peace.”

Biting a cop, how progressive.

BOSTON (CBS/AP) — State Police say 51 people were arrested in Boston late Tuesday night during protests of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white Ferguson, Missouri, officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager.

All but one were turned over to Boston police for booking Wednesday, most on disorderly conduct charges.

One state trooper was hurt when he was bitten on the wrist by a protester, according to police. He was treated at the scene.

An estimated 1,500 people marched from Dudley Square in the Roxbury down Massachusetts Avenue to the South Bay.
