Dem Rep. Emanuel Cleaver: Blacks Believe “The Police Represents An Army Patrolling An Occupied Territory”…

It’s always someone else’s fault.

Via Breitbart:

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Reid Report,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) said, ‘African-Americans all around this country believe that the police represents an army patrolling an occupied territory.”

While discussing the Congressional Black Caucus reaction to officer Darren Wilson not being charged in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, Cleaver said, “What happened actually leads further to the furtherance of the distrust between African-Americans and police because African Americans all around this country believe that the police represents an army patrolling an occupied territory.”

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.”

Do you or somebody you love identify as transgender? Don’t let this happen to you — register your final wishes with an attorney.

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.

Univ. of Penn Professor: Michael Brown A “Sacrifice” To America’s “God of White Supremacy”…

Anthea Butler

Our old friend Anthea Butler doing what she does best, brain dead race baiting.

Via Campus Reform:

An Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania has blamed “America’s racist god” for the killing of Michael Brown.

Anthea Butler, A regular guest on MSNBC, blamed America’s blood thirsty “god of white supremacy,” for the Ferguson tragedy in which police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot teenager Michael Brown during a violent altercation.

“America’s racist god requires black people’s blood to atone for the sins committed by its followers,” Butler writes in Religion Dispatches, an independent non-profit news and commentary blog hosted by the University of Southern California.

“This time, the blood shed in sacrifice to this god of white supremacy was Michael Brown’s,” Butler writes.

Butler continues by likening prosecutor Robert McCulloch to Pontius Pilate and alleging that Darren Wilson acted as agent to the “god of white supremacy.”

Islamic State Beheads Ismaili Man For Being An “Apostate”…

In non-Ferguson news, Islamic State fighters are still animals.

BEIRUT, Lebanon — The jihadist Islamic State group on Tuesday said it beheaded a member of Syria’s minority Ismaili community, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, accusing him of “apostasy.”

“Yesterday [Monday] the Islamic police in Homs province carried out the punishment for apostasy against an Ismaili apostate… The punishment was carried out before a group of Muslims,” IS said in a statement distributed on jihadist forums.

IS also distributed graphic photographs of the execution, including one showing the unnamed victim kneeling on the ground as a jihadist raises a sword above his head.

“This is what will happen to every apostate,” read a handwritten sign placed above the shoulders of the victim’s disfigured body.

The Ismaili community numbers some 200,000 people in Syria, where many live in Salamiyeh, a town in the central province of Hama.

Michael Brown Supporters Shut Down San Diego Highway, Fist Fights Breakout Between Motorists And Protesters…

Who wouldn’t be pissed if they got stuck on a highway because of these protesters?

Via News 6:

A human barricade completely stopped traffic in La Jolla Wednesday morning during rush hour. Traffic is just slowly getting back to normal on the 5-North freeway, near Nobel Drive.

This is all in response to the grand jury’s decision not to charge Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of an unarmed teen. Around seven this morning protesters lined the freeway during rush hour – and literally stopped traffic for about a half hour.

About 50 people held signs saying “Hands up, Don’t shoot.” When this line of protesters stood in the middle of the road, things got heated – drivers got out, confronted the group and punches were even thrown.

The California Highway Patrol and San Diego Police set up a staging area, and eventually moved in. No one was arrested and the protesters peacefully marched down the shoulder.

HHS To Try And Enroll Mall Shoppers In Obamacare During Black Friday…

Via Politico:

HHS is hitting the malls this weekend to make sure that Obamacare is on the minds of consumers during the busiest shopping weekend of the year.

The department on Wednesday will announce new partnerships it has made with retail stores, pharmacies and popular websites to spread the word about the current open enrollment season, which began on Nov. 15 and ends Feb. 15. On three key days after Thanksgiving — Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday — as well as dates beyond, Westfield Shopping Centers, the National Community Pharmacists Association and the XO Group will provide consumers with information about how they can sign up for coverage through the exchanges.

The outreach approach is a stark shift from Obamacare’s first year, when HHS utilized celebrities and other high-profile figures to generate buzz about HealthCare.gov. But with a shorter enrollment period this time around, the necessity of capturing renewals and the challenges of messaging in the midst of a frenetic holiday season, HHS is turning to more practical approaches to get people to enroll.

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

MCSPADDEN: “That he was just emotional. I don’t feel that he stirred the crowd. The crowd was already stirred. It’s been stirring since August 9th. I hold — I wouldn’t hold him accountable for that. That comes from a higher power, elected official and it’s called the governor.”

MCSPADDEN: “They stirred the pot. They had everyone on edge. They had everyone in an uproar and had the city on edge, basically, since August 9th.”

Ferguson Protesters Attempt To Storm St. Louis City Hall, 3 Arrested…

Does storming city hall classify as “mostly peaceful?”

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Three people were arrested when protesters attempted to gain entry to City Hall in downtown St. Louis Wednesday.

Jeff Rainford, Chief of Staff for the St. Louis Mayor’s Office, told News 4 a small number of protesters attempted to charge into City Hall after the group marched through downtown, causing a small scuffle at the doorway.

Rainford said the mayor’s office usually will work with protesters so they can safely protest inside, and outside, the building but a small number of “unruly” protesters caused a disturbance on Wednesday.

Rainford said the police worked with the protesters so they could march safely downtown but pepper spray was used when things became “unruly” at City Hall.

Lib Cesspool Gawker Praises Ferguson Riots…

Screen shot 2014-11-26 at 12.58.49 PM

Don’t ever change, Gawker.

Via Gawker:

[T]he media reaction to the rioting has thus far been uniformly ridiculous. As much as we all love AutoZone and Doritos, hysterically sobbing at the sight of the former being burned and the latter being looted is a tad over the top. A clip of bullets was unloaded into an unarmed black boy and then his killer was ushered through some sort of cop-loving kangaroo court, after all. Some charred car refreshers are hardly something to get worked up about in moments like these.

But is this really so? There is, of course, the historical case to be made for rioting: the past is replete with examples where rioting gets the goods. But there is also, I’d submit, an even more straightforward case for rioting: at the right levels, rioting is economically efficient.

One need look no further than famous economist and Nobel laureate Gary Becker to see how this is true. According to Becker, punishing bad behavior increases the costs of engaging in such behavior and thereby reduces the amount of it. This is the underlying theory of most criminal justice schemes. Rioting that occurs in response to gross police misconduct and criminal system abuses imposes costs on doing those things. It signals to police authorities that they risk this sort of destructive mayhem if they continue on like this. All else equal, this should reduce the amount of police misconduct as criminal justice authorities take precautions to prevent the next Ferguson.

Another Side Effect of Climate Change and El Niño Events? Shorter Kids – MoJo

The weather pattern known as El Niño could be stunting kids’ growth—even years after the extreme storms abate, a new study finds. Researchers at Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health, led by assistant professor of medicine and international health William Checkley, say they have conducted the first study on the long-term health consequences of El Niño weather systems. According to the paper published today in BioMed Central, children born around the time of the severe 1997-’98 El Niño living in coastal Peru, one of the regions hardest hit by the weather pattern, are significantly shorter for their age than children born before El Niño hit. […]

The team measured the height, weight, and fat, and muscle of a random sample of 2,095 children born between 1991 and 2001 in Tumbes, Peru—a city on the northwestern coast. A decade after the extreme ’97 El Niño, in November and December of 2008 and 2009, they found that, on average, the children born during and shortly after El Niño were shorter and had less lean mass, or body weight minus fat, than children born before the event.

Pentagon Changes Term For Captured Jihadists To “Unprivileged Enemy Belligerents”…

GITMO

Mind-numbing nuance.

Via FAS:

When it comes to Department of Defense doctrine on military treatment of detained persons, “unlawful enemy combatants” are a thing of the past. That term has been retired and replaced by “unprivileged enemy belligerents” in a new revision of Joint Publication 3-13 on Detainee Operations, dated November 13, 2014.

Among other changes, the revised Publication adopts Article 75 of the First Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions which provide minimum standards for humane treatment of detained persons. It also presents expanded discussion of biometric capabilities that are applicable to detainees.

The previous edition of Joint Publication 3-13, published in 2008, is available here for comparison.

Four Freelance Reporters Robbed At Gunpoint In Ferguson…

Update to this story.

Via Riverfront Times:

The site of Michael Brown’s killing has become particularly dangerous for media members in the last 24 hours. A crew of four freelance journalists was robbed at gunpoint this evening around 8 p.m. as they tried to film a segment at the Canfield Drive memorial.

Emily Molli, a freelancer filing for Chinese network Xinhua News Agency, said she was standing behind the camera while her colleague Marcus DiPaola was filming. She said she saw a large group of young men wearing masks and carrying guns walk towards them.

“They got closer and then I heard them say, ‘Turn the camera off, turn the camera off,” Molli told Daily RFT. “They came sort of at us and tried to grab the camera.”

The crew packed up and began walking to their car, but Molli and DiPaola said the men followed them, yelling. The reporters managed to make it inside their Prius before the group caught up and began smashing the windows.

“One guy pulled [the car door] back open, got a gun out of his backpack and pointed it at my head. He tells me to get out of the car and give me the keys,” said Molli. “That’s what I did.”

“Fifteen to twenty males followed us with guns and hammers out,” confirmed DiPaola. “Every single one of them had masks on.” […]

DiPaola and Molli said a large video camera, their car keys and their wallets were taken.
