Video: Rioters Loot And Set #Ferguson Market On Fire, Hero Local Woman Rushes In To Put Fire Out

See more of the video here, from Right Scoop.

This is the store that Michael Brown stole the cigarillos from, strong arming the owner, as Brown tried to get away. It has been hit before, but was attacked again on the night of the grand jury decision. You can see in the video people with a plan going to great effort to get in, past boards and bars to destroy the store. Then, a man very deliberately spreads accelerant around and lights it on fire. He sprays more accelerant on the fire before he flees the store.

A woman, described as a local frequent customer of the store, courageously rushes in and pours milk on it to put it out, otherwise the store might have gone up.

According to the attorney for the store, Jay Kanzler, the store through the various attacks has suffered hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage and loss, and they have set up a gofundme account to help out the store.

Obama: The Only People Who Have The Right To Object To Immigration Are Native Americans

President Obama Delivers Remarks On Executive Action Immigration Reform

Typical strawman. No one is objecting to immigration, people are objecting to ILLEGAL immigration and a president who not only condones the breaking of the law, but assists in it, by violating the Constitution, Mr. President. Not to mention that “Native Americans” is not a static entity, all of them were immigrants as well.

Via The Independent:

President Obama quite succinctly summed up the absurdity of the Republicans’ issues with his immigration reform in Chicago yesterday, arguing that perhaps the only people who can legitimately be pissed off about illegal immigrants are Native Americans.

Returning to his hometown to speak, the president tried to place his recent executive action, which saved five million immigrants from deportation, within a great American tradition of welcoming foreigners.

“If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave there have been periods where the folks who were already here have said, ‘Well I don’t want those folks,'” he said. “Even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans.”

Newly elected Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) delivered the Republican Thanksgiving Day address on Thursday, emphasizing his gratitude for the sacrifices made by members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

“For many, there will be no homecoming this week. From Afghanistan to Iraq to Korea, our troops continue to patrol the world to bring peace and security for us all. From Marines in Liberia to sailors across the oceans to airmen over the Asian skies to the sentinels standing guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, these troops will sacrifice the comforts of family and home so we can enjoy them. To each of you, on behalf of the people of a grateful nation, I extend our deepest thanks for your honorable and faithful service.”

#Ferguson Grand Jury Reveals The Inconsistencies Of Witnesses Which Fed False Media Narrative

dorian johnson and friends

Yet it was these same witnesses that the media used to concoct its false narrative of the unarmed boy just shot down in the street.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Some witnesses said Michael Brown had been shot in the back. Another said he was face-down on the ground when Officer Darren Wilson “finished him off.” Still others acknowledged changing their stories to fit published details about the autopsy or admitted that they did not see the shooting at all.

An Associated Press review of thousands of pages of grand jury documents reveals numerous examples of statements made during the shooting investigation that were inconsistent, fabricated or provably wrong. For one, the autopsies ultimately showed Brown was not struck by any bullets in his back.

Prosecutors exposed these inconsistencies before the jurors, which likely influenced their decision not to indict Wilson in Brown’s death.

Bob McCulloch, the St. Louis County prosecutor, said the grand jury had to weigh testimony that conflicted with physical evidence and conflicting statements by witnesses as it decided whether Wilson should face charges.

“Many witnesses to the shooting of Michael Brown made statements inconsistent with other statements they made and also conflicting with the physical evidence. Some were completely refuted by the physical evidence,” McCulloch said.

The decision Monday not to charge Wilson with any crime set off more violent protests in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson and around the country, fueled by claims that the unarmed black 18-year-old was shot while surrendering to the white officer in the mostly African-American city.

Coast Guard Saves 193 Rare Sea Turtles From Global Warming

Cape Cod Turtles

The War on Global Warming is heating up from the polar vortex.

Via Stars and Stripes

A Coast Guard plane touched down in Orlando at dusk Tuesday, hauling a cargo of the world’s rarest sea turtles, rescued by volunteers from the lethally chilly waters and beaches of Cape Cod Bay.

Weighing only 2 to 10 pounds, the young Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles are among the first of an astounding wave of the reptiles to succumb to hypothermia in the “bucket” of the Massachusetts bay.

“They’re so small,” said Alyssa Hancock, a SeaWorld Orlando aquarium worker, peering into one of 101 banana boxes holding 193 turtles.

Turtle rescues happen every year in late fall in the Northeast, but for reasons not yet known what’s happening this year is “epic,” said one of the nearly two dozen volunteers passing boxes of turtles like a bucket brigade.

“Statistically, I feel like we are out on Pluto,” said Tony LaCasse, spokesman for the New England Aquarium’s marine-animal hospital in Quincy, Mass., who fears the number of cold-stunned turtles could quadruple.

“We’ve been rescuing sea turtles for 25 years, and we are just absolutely shocked,” LaCasse said.

Among possible explanation for the huge spike in turtle rescues – the record of 242 in 2012 has been eclipsed already this year by more than 400 rescues – is that the number of highly endangered Kemp’s ridleys has been increasing slightly in recent years.

So when more of them turned up for their normal summer feast on crabs in Cape Cod Bay, more were trapped there when water temperatures began to drop in September.

Overwhelming Support Pours In For Woman Whose Store Was Damaged In #Ferguson Riots

2663770_1416933819.0709

We reported on rioters in Ferguson attacking Natalie’s Cakes and More and damaging the store. Her story has gone viral and the goodness of people from all over the world contributing has been amazing. The amount is now over 200,000.

Via Fox News:

There has been an overwhelming outpouring of support for a single mother whose bakery was damaged in the Ferguson protests.

The window of Natalie Dubose’s shop was smashed in during protests following a grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

A photo of Dubose (above) prompted calls from people who said they wanted to help her fix her store, and so they set up a GoFundMe page. The crowdfunding site raised $110,000 in a matter of hours, and the money is still rolling in.

Dubose opened Natalie’s Cakes and More in June after renting a booth at a flea market every weekend in order to make the money to set up a storefront. Business was good until August, when protests first began after Brown’s death.

“Sometimes I was counting $12 in an envelope at night after being there for 10 hours a day. And so that was a little depressing. I did a lot of praying, I did a lot of crying and some more crying. But all that, it kind of brought me here today.”

Dubose said that she still can’t come up with the words she would say to the people who damaged shops in her community. She said today on “Shepard Smith Reporting” that she had made pleas to individual protesters, urging them not to harm her store because it is her only source of income to raise her two kids.

“I was more hurt than anything,” she said.

As for those who’ve chipped in to help? Dubose says she is so grateful for the love and support that has poured in from across the country.

“If I could have arms big enough, I would just hug each and every last one of them,” she said of those who have donated.

A sample of Natalie Dubose’s cakes:

Dubose has expressed her gratitude on her gofundme page and is asking people to help some of the other businesses in the area:

I’m overwhelmed by the amazing generosity I’m receiving. The love, attention, support, the many, many people stopping by to say hello, the offers of assistance, the letters, the anonymous donations, the lovely letters, flowers, telephone calls, media support, and the support of the people of Ferguson.

Thank you for the wonderful comments, I can’t wait to read them all.

I am truly and humbly blessed.

People have ordered cakes for weeks in advance in support.

Obama Celebrates His “Favorite Holiday”

Via The Hill:

President Obama plans to watch some football on Thursday as he and his family celebrate Thanksgiving, his “favorite holiday.”

“Before we lift a fork, we lend a hand by going out into the community to serve some of our neighbors in need. And we give thanks for each other, and for all of God’s blessings,” Obama said a day after his family volunteered at a southeast Washington, D.C., food bank.

“Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because, more than any other, it is uniquely American. Each of us brings our own traditions and cultures and recipes to the table – but we all share this day, united by the gratitude for the bounty of this nation,” Obama said.

The president will spend the day with friends and family “eating some good food and watching a little football,” Obama said in his weekly address Thursday, released two days early due to the shortened workweek.

Obama, a longtime Chicago Bears (5-6) fan, is sure to be cheering for his home state team as the underdogs go up against the Detroit Lions (7-4) starting around lunchtime on the East Coast.

He didn’t get the memo that eating turkey is evil. While Michelle leaves school children with paltry lunches to celebrate, the Obama dinner table is heavily laden with lots of tasty fatty foods.

WASHINGTON, DC – The White House Press Office released the menu Thursday for the president’s Thanksgiving meal.

The first family will be dining on a main course of thyme-roasted turkey and honey-baked ham. They’ll eat a variety of sides including cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, macaroni and cheese and dinner rolls. The vegetable dishes served will be braised winter greens, sweet potato gratin, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.

The menu also includes five pies: banana cream, coconut cream, pumpkin, apple, pecan, and cherry.

According to the White House Press Office, the Obamas will be “dining with family.”

Darren Wilson To Resign

Via NY Post:

The white Ferguson cop who killed an unarmed black teen is in talks to resign from his police department — and may give up policing altogether, his lawyer said Wednesday night.

“It’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when,” Officer Darren Wilson’s attorney, Neil Bruntrager, told CNN. “He’s on paid leave, and there are discussions that are going on right now to separate from the department in an amicable fashion.”

The news came a day after Wilson said that he lived in fear as he kept under the radar while awaiting a decision from the grand jury that ultimately chose not to charge him.

“I’d use the word stressful, but that’s an understatement,” Wilson told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos during a 90-minute interview in St. Louis.

“You just take precautions — everything you do, everywhere you go. You know, from where you sit in a restaurant to where you drive.”

Thanksgiving Wins: #Ferguson Anarchists Plan To Disrupt Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade In NYC, Epic Fail Ensues

nup_159347_0239_102610723-e1417067077544

Via NY Post:

Anarchists plotted on Wednesday to disrupt the Thanksgiving Day Parade — feeling emboldened after cops allowed them to run free on major roadways like the FDR Drive and the West Side Highway, The Post has learned.

“The police aren’t going to arrest us and they are not going to shoot us,” an organizer who calls himself “Magiq” boasted to a group of two dozen rabble-rousers at a Union Square planning session Wednesday night.

“They’re walking right by us now with their heads down and their tails between their legs,” Magiq, 27, of Brooklyn taunted as scores of cops watched the group from across 14th Street.

The hashtag #StopTheParade was burning up Twitter as agitators planned a fresh wave of chaos following two nights running amok on city streets to protest the Ferguson, Mo., grand-jury decision.

“Yes, they’re planning on crashing the parade,” a law-enforcement source said. “With this hands-off approach, it gives them free rein to do anything they want. It’s a free pass to act like a fool.”

So what happened?

They tried to get into the parade route and police gobbled up the turkeys…

Via NY Post:

The Thanksgiving Day Parade was barely under way when about half a dozen protesters were handcuffed Thursday morning after they ignored police officers and tried to march toward the parade route on Sixth Avenue.

Protesters chanted, “Justice for Mike Brown!” and “No justice, no peace!” referring to the unarmed black teen shot and killed by a white cop in Ferguson, Mo.
The protesters marched south from the New York Public Library and turned right on 37th Street toward Seventh Avenue about 9:30 a.m. – but then tried to make a U-turn toward the parade route.

What Astronauts Eat For Thanksgiving

Bad bad bad, both irradiated and turkey. But on the positive side, no Salon there to chastise you and be the food police!

Via NY Post:

Just be thankful you’re not eating this.

As millions of Americans indulge themselves in the usual fixings for Thanksgiving, the six members of the International Space Station will be chowing down on irradiated smoked turkey, thermostabilized candied yams and freeze-dried cornbread dressing.

The bright side — there’s no slaving over a hot stove for countless hours in space — one snip of the scissors and some water is all it takes for the Expedition 42 crew to treat themselves to “traditional holiday fare with a space-food flair,” according to NASA.

Once they’re done scarfing down the main course, which also includes freeze-dried green beans and mushrooms, the astronauts will cap the meal off with dessert: thermostabilized cherry-blueberry cobbler.

As for leftovers — there’s no fridge, making it impossible to preserve any of the scraps.

Salon: Stop Eating Turkey For Thanksgiving, Give Up Big Fat Holiday Travesty!

Uh, yeah, good luck with that! I’ve got a 14 pounder in the oven right now and I’m going to take a picture and send it to Salon. With a side of sausage stuffing…

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 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.

Good grief.

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.

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.
