Via ABC:

Sometimes, all you really need is a good hug.

Amid the nationwide protests over the failure of a grand jury to indict a white police officer for shooting an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., freelance photographer Johnny Nguyen snapped the picture above during a demonsration in Portland, Ore., on Nov. 25.

“I came upon this boy who had tears in his eyes and I knew this was the place to be, so I followed him in the crowd,” Nguyen said. “Then he came upon the police officer. They talked and he gave him a hug.”

Devonte Hart, 12, was at the demonstration holding a sign that said “free hugs” when Portland Police Sgt. Bret Barnum noticed him, motioned the boy over and the two began talking.

Nguyen said that Barnum pointed to the sign and asked “Do I get one of those?” and they hugged.

Nguyen’s Instagram account has more photos from the protests.

Seven people were arrested during the protest on Portland on Nov. 25, and parts of several highways were closed when pedestrians entered the roadways, according to police reports.

Homeowners In Ferguson May Sell And Flee Elsewhere Thanks To All The Rioters…

Protestors defy police, take to the streets of Ferguson

Nobody saw this coming…

Via Yahoo:

(Reuters) – Realty brokers in battered Ferguson, Missouri, are predicting many homes could go up for sale early next year after rioting over the August police shooting of a black teenager appeared to put a chill on the number of active listings.

Some homeowners are eager to leave Ferguson because of racially charged unrest over the past three months, brokers told Reuters. In the latest violence, stores were looted and set ablaze after a grand jury decided on Monday not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown.

“There’s no question that we have people wanting to leave because of the unrest,” said Pearce Neikirk, a long-time real estate broker in Ferguson.

Colorado Walmart Worker Travels To NJ In Protest Of Low Wages, She Doesn’t Make Enough To Get Dental Work Or To Take A Vacation

Only a matter of time until a Walmart is torched in solidarity with St. Swisher of Ferguson.

Via NJ Com

Hundreds of people protested outside Walmart in North Bergen on Friday morning, rallying for a higher minimum wage on what is considered one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Roughly 300 people from various labor organizations gathered outsidethe Walmart on 88th Street, blocking a section of the parking lot as a steady flow of shoppers continued to arrive at the store. The protest was among 1,600 planned across the country — and joined at least three others held in New Jersey — which were organized by OUR Walmart and the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. The protests focused on raising wages to $15 an hour and forcing Walmart to offer consistent full-time work to its employees.

Barbara Gertz, who works as an overnight stocker at a Walmart in Colorado, said she makes $10.40 an hour with a $2 night shift differential. She lamented that she can’t help her stepdaughter pay for college and said she and her husband have never been able to take a vacation.

She also noted that she can’t to afford to fix a broken tooth because her benefits don’t cover enough of her dental bill. But she said she traveled to New Jersey because she wanted to speak out for all Walmart employees.

NYT Praises 20-Year-Old Abortion Funder In The “Abortion Clinic Desert” Of Texas…

lenzi

Sounds about right for the New York Times…

Via Newsbusters:

For The New York Times, Black Friday’s just another great day to promote “abortion entrepreneurs” like 20-year-old Lenzi Sheible, who helps troubled women get around Texas abortion laws by paying for hotels and transportation bills to other abortion clinics. The headline was “Activists Help Pay for Patients’ Travel to Shrinking Number of Abortion Clinics.”

For the liberal media, abortion is a precious procedure which must always be provided with maximum convenience (for the baby-expelling “mother”). Texas has become an “abortion clinic desert” that desperately needs more “choice.” Reporter Jackie Calmes lamented the increasing difficulties:

Like an entrepreneur meeting a new market demand, Ms. Sheible, among others, has stepped up as women are finding it increasingly difficult to get abortions across large areas of the United States. In just over three years, according to the Guttmacher Institute, states have passed 231 laws restricting abortion, more than any time in the four decades since the Supreme Court established a constitutional right to abortion in Roe v. Wade.

Watchdog: Prisoners Get Millions From IRS In Bogus Refund Claims

irs

Via Fox News:

Hundreds of thousands of prisoners are filing phony tax refund claims and the IRS is not doing enough to quash the problem, according to a watchdog report.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) said in its report Tuesday that refund fraud associated with prisoner Social Security numbers is a “significant problem” for the tax agency that is only getting worse over time.

According to the report, more than 137,000 phony tax returns were filed in 2012 using a prisoner’s Social Security number to the tune of $1 billion. While many of the fake refunds were flagged and prevented by the agency, the IRS issued $70 million in bogus refunds.

This was a significant increase from 2007, when more than 37,000 fake tax returns were filed for amounts equaling $166 million.

“Tax refund fraud associated with prisoners remains a significant problem for tax administration,” the report said.

Atlanta Fire Chief Suspended And Must Go Through Sensitivity Training For Christian Views On Homosexuality…

Ridiculous. Another casualty of the PC Police…

Via Truth Revolt:

Atlanta Fire Rescue Chief Kelvin Cochran did the unthinkable: he published a book expressing his Christian views toward homosexuality and various other sexual sins. For this grievous offense, he must now be suspended for one month without pay, undergo sensitivity training, and keep his mouth shut if he ever wants to work again.

As LifeSiteNews reports, Cochran, a Baptist deacon and former Obama appointee as FEMA’s U.S. Fire Administrator, published the book Who Told You You Were Naked? that explored the theme of being “naked” in the biblical sense of the word, which he emphasized meant as suffering “condemnation and deprivation” that can only be amended when people are “clothed with Christ.”

His book also highlighted that various actions lead to a life devoid of God’s blessings…

Unarmed 18 Yr Old White Man Killed By Black Police Officer Mirrors Ferguson With No Indictment, But No Protests

No protests, no riots.

Via Washington Times:

A two-year-old case involving the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old white man by a black police officer is gaining attention on social media in the wake of this week’s protests and rioting in Ferguson, Missouri.

Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama. Despite public pressure for an indictment, a Mobile County grand jury refused to bring charges against Officer Austin, concluding that the officer acted in self-defense.

The circumstances mirror those of the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, a black unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs by Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, in Ferguson.

So Sad: Biden And Hillary Increasingly Walking Away From Obama…

hillary-biden-one-600x398

Ah, about that time people slowly abandon Obama with 2016 on their minds…

Via Washington Times:

Et tu, Joe?

Whether out of frustration or political necessity, some of President Obama’s closest lieutenants from his first term are distancing themselves from Mr. Obama as 2016 approaches. The latest is none other than Vice President Joseph R. Biden, who usually boasts about the lack of daylight between the president and himself.

The vice president let it be known last week that he was “ticked off” about the way the president forced out Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, a longtime Senate colleague of Mr. Biden‘s. Mr. Hagel was pushed out in less than two years by a White House that is accused of micromanaging national security policy.

Earlier this year, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized Mr. Obama’s stated principle of foreign policy: “Don’t do stupid stuff.”

“Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle,” Mrs. Clinton said in an interview.

An anonymous Clinton ally criticized Mr. Obama’s handling of the Islamic State and other Middle Eastern crises this fall as too “passive,” saying, Mrs. Clinton “would have taken a more aggressive approach.”

#Ferguson: Pregnant Woman In Car Driven At Police Loses Eye After Police Shoot Bean Bag In Self-Defense

Police were responding to the gas station because of shots fired.

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) — This St. Louis woman’s picture and story has spread through social media, she’s now ready to talk about what happened to her shortly after the grand jury announcement was made in the death of Michael Brown.

Dornella Conners is now blind in her left eye and can hardly see out of her right eye after her and her boyfriend, De’Angelas Lee, stopped at a gas station in the 10000 block of Halls Ferry early Tuesday morning. Conners says as she and her boyfriend were driving away from the station multiple police officers showed up.

“They pulled up while we were coming towards the street, De’Anglas was trying to get away, they blocked us from the side, front and back,” Conners said.
Conners says her boyfriend was trying to drive around St. Louis County Police but police say he drove towards them. Police say the officer, fearing for his safety, used his less lethal bean bag round, striking the front passenger window causing it to shatter.

Conner went to another police officer who helped her get medical attention.

Narcissist-In-Chief Uses First Person Singular 91 Times In Speech On Immigration…

Barack Obama

Everything is all Obama all the time to…Obama.

Via CNS News:

Leaving aside passages in which he quoted a Chicago pub owner and a letter from a citizen from Georgia, President Barack Obama used the first person singular—including the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my”—91 times in a speech he delivered in Chicago Tuesday to explain his unilateral action on immigration.

But as often as Obama used “I,” “me” and “my” in Chicago this week, it was no match for the speech he delivered in Austin, Texas, on July 10, when he used the first person singular 199 times.

In that Texas speech, however, Obama had not focused specifically on immigration policy. In that speech, Obama had explained his intention to act unilaterally wherever he could.

‘Shocking Revelation': IRS Gave The White House Thousands Of Taxpayer Confidential Tax Documents

Criminal.

Via Newsmax:

The IRS improperly turned over thousands of confidential tax documents to the White House for review, according to information obtained from a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Treasury Department’s inspector general by the legal advocacy firm Cause of Action, exposing a pipeline of communication between the two, the Daily Caller reports.

“[T]he Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed Cause of Action that there exist nearly 2,500 potentially responsive documents relating to investigations of improper disclosures of confidential taxpayer information by the IRS to the White House,” Cause of Action noted, according to the Daily Caller.

Such documentation, including the exchange of confidential information between White House policy adviser Jeanne Lambrew and former IRS official Lois Lerner, came to light after it was revealed that the the IRS had likely targeted conservative groups for review, including one that had sought in a 2012 lawsuit to overturn Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, the Daily Caller noted.

The Justice Department has asked for a longer window under which to review the newly found documents before releasing them publicly, the Daily Caller said.

The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard, in his “Secrets” column, called news of the leaked documents a “shocking revelation.”

Ferguson School Robbed During Protests On Monday Night…

I wonder whose son the robbers would look like?

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Some school kids may return from break to find classroom windows boarded. Armed criminals struck an elementary school in Ferguson during overnight riots this week.

Resident Renwick Ware said, “Now you`re interfering with the school. You`re messing with the kids` education now.”

Students at Griffith Elementary already missed extra classes this week. Now they may see boarded windows and missing electronics when the doors open at 8:30a.m. Monday.

Ware said it`s the work of four men in two cars. He said, “They had guns on `em and all that and I approached and came out of my driveway, I noticed they were loading stuff up.”

Ferguson Police report stolen electronics, some of which they`ve already recovered. Ware says Ferguson officers and National Guardsmen responded quickly after he drove to a command station to report what he witnessed.

Ware said, “I was getting ready to head over to my office because I got a call that they knocked out City Hall windows and they knocked out windows to the office that I was in, so happened that I came out that night I ran right into this.” He added, “One was standing through the sunroof of the white vehicle with his gun in the air.”

Ray Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension by the NFL, which has been “vacated immediately,” the players’ union said Friday.

The appeal was heard earlier this month by former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones. She was deciding whether the NFL overstepped its authority in modifying Rice’s two-game suspension, making it indefinite after video of the Baltimore Ravens running back punching his fiancee– now his wife — became public.

Rice was released by the Ravens and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the suspension indefinite shortly after the video was made public.

Obama Kills Tax Cut Because It Wouldn’t Help Illegal Immigrants…

Shocker.

Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama quietly killed a draft tax-cut because the GOP leadership wouldn’t agree to his demand that valuable tax breaks be given to millions of illegal immigrants, according to a Politico article about the secret negotiations.

Just before Thanksgiving, “the deal fell apart just as it seemed to be coming together… [because] Republicans worried undocumented immigrants targeted by [Obama’s Nov. 21 amnesty] would begin claiming the credits,” Politico reported.

The GOP leadership’s reluctance to award tax-breaks to illegals suggests top leaders may use the required December budget bill to deny funds to operate Obama’s promised amnesty. So far, GOP leaders have said anything concrete on the amnesty funds, partly because Democrats say they’ll shut down the government.

But GOP leaders stepped back from the deal because they recognized that Obama planned to award the EITC money to illegals covered by his Nov. 21 executive order.
