Not starting curfew until tomorrow? Huh?

Mayor speaking, saying difference between peaceful protesters and those thugs attacking today. They are trying to tear down what so many have fought for, things that will impact our community for years. We are employing every force we can.

We will deploy the national guard, there will be a curfew city wide, 10 pm to 5 am. but not starting until tomorrow. This preliminary curfew will last for at least a week. Under 14 by 9pm curfew, already in force.

Also have activated emergency activation response to be prepared for anything that may occur.

Commissioner says 15 officers have been injured.

Mayor said if Al Sharpton wants to come, he is welcome.

Looting is continuing, but police rapid response seems to be improving.

Surprise! Jimmy Carter Will Meet With Hamas Militants In Gaza This Week…

Carter meeting with Hamas? No way!

Via Breitbart:

Former U.S. Democratic President Jimmy Carter will travel to the Gaza Strip on Thursday and meet with officials from Hamas, the Jihadist terror organization that rules the Palestinian territory.

“Carter will arrive in Gaza on Thursday through the [Israeli-controlled] Erez border crossing to meet with leading Hamas officials,” a Palestinian security spokesperson told Anadolu Agency, a news outlet based in Turkey.

Carter, 90, will meet with the Hamas military chief Ismail Haneya, Xinhua reports.

He will attempt to seek reconciliation between Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah, the latter which rules the Palestinian areas of the West Bank. Carter has urged Saudi officials to help with his mediation efforts.

“Carter has lately met with prominent Saudi officials and urged their intervention to achieve reconciliation between Palestinian factions, which was welcomed by Riyadh,” a Hamas spokesperson told Anadolu Agency. “The Saudi government has begun preparations for mediation between the two movements to reach a ‘Mecca II’ agreement,” the spokesperson added.

Carter plans to arrive in the region on Thursday for a 3-day tour of Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. His request to meet with Israel’s President and Prime Minister was denied. In refusing to meet with the 39th U.S. President, both offices cited his anti-Israel, pro-Hamas sentiments.

Baltimore Sun Attributes Riots Today To Social Media Flier Calling For “Purge”

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 6.29.16 PM

This in addition to the credible threat of the threat against police, and possible teaming up of Bloods and Crips to attack the police.

Police warned the mall, and shut down buses and subway, but apparently failed to marshall sufficient police forces.

Via Baltimore Sun:

The incident stemmed from a flier that circulated widely among city school students via social media about a “purge” to take place at 3 p.m., starting at Mondawmin Mall and ending downtown. Such memes have been known to circulate regularly among city school students, based on the film “The Purge,” about what would happen if all laws were suspended.

The flier included an image of protesters smashing the windshield of a police car Saturday during a march spurred by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who suffered a spinal cord injury earlier this month after being arrested by city police.

Kowalczyk would not speculate on whether the incident was related to Gray’s death.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake activated the city’s emergency operation center just before 6 p.m. to coordinate response to the riots.

Police were preparing for rioting to make its way downtown, with officers in helmets and carrying shields stationed at Lexington Market and the Inner Harbor. Maryland State Police sent 40 troopers to the city, said Keiffer Mitchell, a top aide to Gov. Larry Hogan. Several other jurisdictions, including Baltimore and Howard counties, sent officers to assist.

All but one gate to Oriole Park at Camden Yards was closed, with a game set to begin at 7:05 p.m. But team officials postponed the game less than an hour before first pitch was scheduled.

Update via The Hill:

President Obama dodged potential questions about violent street protests in Baltimore on Monday when he met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Obama met with Lynch for the first time since she was sworn in, but the White House barred print, radio, and television reporters from covering the Oval Office meeting. Only still photographers were allowed inside.

The president and his new attorney general said nothing while their pictures were taken, photographers told a pool reporter.
During the meeting, Lynch updated Obama on the situation in Baltimore and said she “stands ready to provide any assistance that might be helpful there,” the White House said in a statement.

British Labour Chief: You Know What I’m Gonna Do If I Become PM? Make Islamophobia An Aggravated Hate Crime…

Ed Milliband

Thanks to this guy, you’ll probably be hearing a push for this here…

Via Hot Air:

Via Breitbart, a reminder that Britain’s left remains a few steps ahead of America’s in legally sanctioning thoughtcrime. Here in the good ol’ free-market U.S.A., we still prefer economic sanctions for deviating from ruling-class orthodoxy. But give us time. As a much older nation, the UK’s had longer to make “progress.”

There’s a parliamentary election set for 10 days for now so Miliband’s speaking here with an eye to that. I wonder which group he’s hoping to goose into turning out with these remarks — devout Muslims or Britain’s Social Justice Warriors? Frankly, apart from women’s issues and gay rights, there’s probably not much difference between those constituencies anymore.

“We are going to make [Islamophobia] an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” Miliband told the Editor of The Muslim News, Ahmed J Versi in a wide ranging exclusive interview.

“We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country,” he said…

Throughout his interview, Miliband insisted that he took “extreme care” in what he said but it still did not stop him in using the generic term of “Islamist terrorism” and inferring the cause was religious rather than political when suggesting more than once it was based on “perverted ideology.”

You Knew It Was Coming! Professor Claims Global Warming Caused Nepal Earthquake

CDcTgzAVAAA3CcA

They’re still trying to rescue many people, whole villages are reported destroyed, but yes, let’s use a tragic disaster to push our crazed political point!

Via Daily Caller:

So not only does global warming cause volcanoes, but it also caused the massive earthquake that rocked Nepal Saturday and killed thousands of people.

“It now appears that there exists a clear relationship between the global warming and earthquakes and other under earth activities,” writes Dr. Vivek Kumar Srivastava, an assistant professor at India’s Kanpur University.

Srivastava argues that when permafrost melts in the Arctic “and associated areas due to the increased global temperature, it is quite likely that the under located areas of the earth are affected due to alteration in the pressure on the earth crust.” He adds that when “water level on the seas and oceans increase due to the increased water quantity caused by the global warming, impact on the inside zones of earth can cause many tremors.”

Nepal and surrounding areas were hit with a 7.8 magnitude earthquake Saturday that toppled houses and killed more than 3,000 people. So far, officials say that a further 6,500 people have been injured and responders are continuing to rescue climbers around Mount Everest. On Sunday, a massive aftershock rocked the region, exacerbating the damage.

Obama Regime Fighting For Right To Use ‘Cell Phone Kill Switch’

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 12.44.19 PM

Oh, try that, the one thing that will get millions of Americans in an uproar is trying to kill their cell phones.

Via Al Jazeera:

For nearly a decade, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has maintained a policy for unilaterally shutting down private cellular service, over an entire metropolitan area if necessary, in the event of a national crisis.

Adopted without public notice or debate, Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 303, often referred to as the cellphone kill switch, has been shrouded in secrecy from its inception and has outraged some civil liberties groups battling to make the policy public.

A key hearing in that fight is set for next week.

“We have no clue what’s in it or what it’s about,” says Harold Feld, the senior vice president of Public Knowledge, a public interest advocacy group. In 2012 the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed suit in federal court seeking disclosure of information about SOP 303’s basic guidelines and policy procedures.

Obama Secretly Granted CIA Operating In Pakistan Exemption From Rules Governing Drone Strikes

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 3.04.58 PM

If you have been listening carefully, the Obama regime is moving very quickly to try to whitewash mistakes surrounding the drone strike death of American hostage Warren Weinstein and Italian hostage Giovanni LoPorto.

They didn’t want to tell the press last week that the CIA had been behind the strike, reason being that it would reveal that they hadn’t followed normal rules trying to verify who was there, and whether the alleged targets represented an “imminent danger” to the U.S.

Via Fox News:

President Obama secretly granted the Central Intelligence Agency more flexibility to conduct drone strikes targeting terror suspects in Pakistan than anywhere else in the world after approving more restrictive rules in 2013.

The Wall Street Journal, citing current and former U.S. officials, first reported that Obama approved a waiver exempting the CIA from proving that militants targeted in Pakistan posed an imminent threat to the U.S. According to the paper, under that standard, the agency might have been prevented from carrying out a Jan. 15 strike that killed an American and an Italian who were held hostage by Al Qaeda-linked militants.

A military intelligence source confirmed to Fox News that there are indeed looser rules in effect for CIA strikes in Pakistan. If the exemption had not been in place, the CIA would have been required to gather more information about the target, and may have delayed or put off the January strike altogether.

Chief Moonbat Elizabeth Warren Gives One Word Answer When Asked About Hillary’s New Liberal Rhetoric: “Eh”…

1000

Cat fight!

Via Guardian:

Is Hillary Clinton co-opting Elizabeth Warren’s progressive message? Warren has a one-word answer: “Eh.”

The Massachusetts senator and liberal icon added to her inscrutable initial response in an interview with the New Yorker, telling the magazine: “She’s laying out her vision for the country and she deserves an opportunity to do that.”

But the opaqueness of her answer will raise eyebrows about Warren’s role as a Democratic party powerbroker as she continues to put pressure on Clinton from the left.

As the former secretary of state turns towards populism to shore up the Democratic base in her run for the White House, her rhetoric increasingly sounds like Warren’s. In an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on Monday, Clinton wrote: “The deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Something is wrong when CEOs earn 300 times more than a typical American worker and hedge fund managers pay a lower tax rate than a truck driver or a nurse.”

“Conservative” Newsmax CEO Defends Clinton Foundation; FLASHBACK: Pledged $1MIL To Foundation…

ruddy

Christopher Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax, wrote an op-ed today defending the Clinton Foundation. (Above is a picture of slick willy in his office.)

Ruddy’s defense of the foundation in Newsmax:

When I heard that Bill Clinton was making as much as $500,000 per speech and made many more millions in his post-presidency, I thought to myself, God bless him. This is the American way.

Former President Clinton’s speaker fees are probably in line with other former presidents who draw big fees, maybe bigger owing to his global popularity.

But God bless them all.

Business and organizations love to rub shoulders with iconic American leaders — though the money Clinton has earned is probably a fraction of what President George H.W. Bush made by signing up with The Carlyle Group, an international conglomerate that made most of its initial money from U.S. defense contracts and from foreign countries like Saudi Arabia.

The elder Bush served his country admirably over a long period, starting in World War II as a heroic pilot, and later in several public offices, including the presidency. He later got his reward after leaving the White House.

God bless George H.W. Bush.

So, it is not every day that I defend Bill and Hillary Clinton, or the Clinton Foundation.

In fact, it may come as a surprise to some. In the 1990s I was described by both James Carville and George Stephanopoulos as the Clinton White House’s No. 1 press enemy. But after Bill Clinton left the White House, I came to admire him and his post-presidential work.

FLASHBACK: The so-called conservative Ruddy pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation in the past:

Via Weekly Standard:

Conservative website Newsmax has pledged a very large donation to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a new report in the Wall Street Journal states.

Newsmax, a conservative news organization, last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period, according to a spokesman for Chris Ruddy, the organization’s CEO. Mr. Ruddy has been friends with the Clintons since 2007,” reports the Journal.

“Through a spokesman, he said the donation wasn’t tantamount to an endorsement of Mrs. Clinton’s potential campaign, though he thinks she would ‘make a great presidential candidate.'”

Ruddy himself has even written a blog post for the Clinton Foundation website. The topic? “Public-Private Partnerships Advance Health Care in Mozambique.”

“Christopher Ruddy is a noted journalist and entrepreneur. He currently serves as CEO and President of Newsmax Media, one of the nation’s leading online news media companies. In 1998, Chris founded Newsmax Media, a multimedia publishing company that publishes online and offline content in the fields of news, politics, health and finance. Newsmax.com is consistently ranked as one of the country’s most trafficked news websites,” reads his bio on the foundation’s website.

Another amazing example of the progress we’ve made under Barry!

Via CNS News:

(CNSNews.com) — In 19.9 percent of American families in 2014, according to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), no one in the family worked.

A family, as defined by the BLS, is a “group of two or more persons residing together who are related by birth, marriage, or adoption. In 2014, there were 80,889,000 families in the United States, and in 16,057,000 of those families, or 19.9 percent, no one had a job.

The BLS designates a person as “employed” if “during the survey reference week” they “(a) did any work at all as paid employees; (b) worked in their own business, profession, or on their own farm; (c) or worked 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in an enterprise operated by a member of the family.”

Members of the 16,057,000 families in which no one held jobs could have been either unemployed or not in the labor force. The BLS designates a person as unemployed if they did not have a job but were actively seeking one. The BLS designates someone as not in the labor force, if they did not have a job and were not actively seeking one.

Israel, with a population of 8 million sent two jumbo jets carrying a 260-member emergency response team to set up a field hospital, mobile operating rooms and X-ray labs, as well as a military search and rescue team to look for survivors, as it did following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The tab will likely run in the millions. The U.S. government initially pledged $1 million in aid and a disaster response team.

Moonbat Writers Citing Mohammed Cartoons Withdraw From Event Over Decision To Charlie Hebdo…

French-satirical-weekly-Charlie-Hebdos-editor-in-chief-Stephane-Charbonnier-800x430

It’s almost like liberals are trying to enforce sharia law.

Via Raw Story:

Six writers have withdrawn from a PEN American Center event over its decision to honor French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo with its Freedom of Expression Courage award. The literary and human rights organization announced Sunday that the writers were disappointed by Charlie Hebdo’s representation of Muslims and its caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

The writers — Peter Carey, Michael Ondaatje, Francine Prose, Teju Cole, Rachel Kushner and Taiye Selasi — have withdrawn from the gala, which is scheduled to be held on May 5 at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The Paris-based magazine was attacked in January by Islamic extremists who killed 12 people. Editor-in-chief Gerard Biard, and Jean-Baptiste Thoret, a Charlie Hebdo staff member who survived the attack because he arrived late for work, are scheduled to accept the award.

“I was quite upset as soon as I heard about (the award),” Prose, a former president of PEN American, told the Associated Press during a telephone interview on Sunday night, adding that while she was in favor of “freedom of speech without limitations” and “deplored” the attack on the publication, giving an award signified “admiration and respect” for the magazine’s work.

“I couldn’t imagine being in the audience when they have a standing ovation for Charlie Hebdo,” Prose said.

Kushner reportedly cited her discomfort with the magazine’s “cultural intolerance” and promotion of “a kind of forced secular view,” as the reason for her withdrawal from the event, according to an email sent Friday to PEN’s leadership.
