Mass Dem Gov. Deval Patrick: “I’m Sick Of Unarmed Black Men Being Shot” By Racist Police Officers…

Deval Patrick

He makes it seem like this happens every day. Shouldn’t he be more concerned with black men shooting other black men which occurs countless times every day?

(HuffPo) – Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) weighed in Wednesday on the ongoing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, by a police officer.

A reporter asked Patrick for his thoughts on the situation in the St. Louis suburb, and the governor responded, “I’m sick of it.”

“I’m sick of unarmed black men being shot by police. I’m sick of the lawlessness on the streets. I think everybody’s tired of it,” Patrick said. “When are we gonna get through with this kind of thing?”

Attorney General Eric Holder arrived in Ferguson later Wednesday to meet with officials as part of a federal investigation into Brown’s death. Patrick said he hoped the investigation would have a swift resolution.

Obama Takes A Break From Golfing To Go Hiking With Mooch…

Days not over yet.

Via The Hill:

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama spent an overcast morning Friday hiking through Chilmark, Mass., a sleepy town on the southwestern tip of Martha’s Vineyard.

The hike came amid growing complaints over the president’s vacation activities, as the White House grapples with crises at home and abroad.

On Friday morning, The New York Times splashed a front-page story detailing criticism of the president’s decision to go golfing immediately after addressing the nation about the brutal murder of journalist James Foley by Islamist militants.

“As a general rule, I think that he’s right that you can’t be held hostage to the news cycle — the man deserves a bit of downtime,” Jim Manley, a former aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), told the paper. “But in this particular instance, I think a lot of Democrats flinched a little bit.”

Harry Reid Mocks Asian Stereotypes: “I Don’t Think You’re Smarter Than Anybody Else” – Update: Apologizes For His “Extremely Poor Taste”…

It’s only racist if a Republican says it.

Via America Rising:

At the Asian Chamber of Commerce in Las Vegas, NV on August 21, 2014, Harry Reid said that Asian Americans convinced “us” that they are smarter than everyone else and then said he has a problem keeping his Wongs “straight.”

Update: I can think of a long list of things Dingy should be apologizing for.

Washington (CNN) – Harry Reid, who faulted his 2010 Republican opponent for making an insensitive remark to Asian-Americans, cracked two Asian-themed jokes at a Las Vegas event Thursday.

“I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” the Senate Majority Leader said to laughs from the audience at a Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce event.

Reid issued an apology for his remarks on Friday, releasing a statement that said, “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing.”

Back in 2010, Reid and his campaign pounced on a racially insensitive remarks that Sharon Angle, his Republican opponent, made about Asians.

Barack Obama

He openly pals around with Al Sharpton, so no surprise.

Via The Hill:

Nearly nine in 10 people say race relations in the United States have not improved under President Obama, according to a new poll.

The New York Times-CBS poll found the majority, 52 percent, said race relations have stayed about the same. Another 35 percent said relations have gotten worse.

Only one in 10 said race relations have improved during the tenure of the first black president.

The poll comes amid turmoil in Ferguson, Mo., were protests appear to be calming after more than a week of clashes with police following the shooting of black 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white officer.

Fifty-nine percent of black people and 50 percent of white people say race relations have stayed the same under Obama.

Forty percent of white people believe relations have gotten worse, twice the percentage of black people.

Forty-seven percent of conservatives said race relations are getting worse under Obama. Twenty-two percent of liberals said the same.

Palestinian Terrorists Kill 4-Year-Old Israeli Boy With Mortar Attack…

Palestinians fire indiscriminately into civilian areas, but don’t worry, Israelis are still the real terrorists.

(AP) – Israeli rescue officials say a 4-year-old boy has been killed in a mortar attack near the border with the Gaza Strip.

The attack occurred early Friday evening in a southern Israeli village along the frontier.

Eli Bin, head of Israel’s national rescue service, confirmed the death in TV interviews.

It was the first Israeli death since a new round of fighting erupted on Tuesday between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers following the collapse of cease-fire talks in Cairo.

Obama Had Sharpton Report Directly To Valerie Jarrett On Situation In Ferguson, Acted As Their Go-Between With Brown Family…

Rather ironic the “post-racial” president’s inner circle includes vile race pimp Al Sharpton.

Via Politico:

A few days after 18-year-old Mike Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri, White House officials enlisted an unusual source for on-the-ground intelligence amid the chaos and tear gas: the Rev. Al Sharpton, a fiery activist who became a household name by provoking rather than pacifying. [...]

And the White House, as the crisis following Brown’s death seemed to flare out of control, worked extensively behind the scenes to maximize The Rev’s doing what he does, using him as both a source of information and a go-between. After huddling with Brown’s family and local community leaders, Sharpton connected directly with White House adviser and First Friend Valerie Jarrett, vacationing in her condo in the exclusive Oak Bluffs section of Martha’s Vineyard, not far from where President Obama and his family were staying. Obama was “horrified” by the images he was seeing on TV, Jarrett told Sharpton, and proceeded to pepper him with questions as she collected information for the president: How bad was the violence? Was it being fueled by outside groups—and could Sharpton do anything to talk them down? What did the Brown family want the White House to do?

It was a heady consultation for Sharpton, who spent years on the outside dreaming of a place in the pantheon of the civil rights leaders he revered as a teenage street preacher in Brooklyn, and it’s an irony lost on no one that his rise to White House adviser has come thanks to Barack Obama, whose restrained personal style couldn’t be any more different from Sharpton’s. If anything, the Ferguson crisis has underscored Sharpton’s role as the national black leader Obama leans on most, a remarkable personal and political transformation for a man once regarded with suspicion and disdain by many in his own party. It’s a status made all the more surprising given that Obama, America’s first black president, ran on a platform of moving beyond the country’s painful racial divisions while Sharpton is the man who once defined those divisions for many Americans.

What brought them together, according to numerous sources I’ve spoken with about this over the years, is a shared commitment to racial justice, and a hardheaded pragmatism that has fueled their success. “He realized I wasn’t as irrational or as crazy as people thought,” Sharpton told me in an interview this week, and indeed Sharpton not only visits the White House frequently, he often texts or emails with senior Obama officials such as Jarrett and Attorney General Eric Holder, the first African American to hold that job and who, like Sharpton, views the Ferguson crisis as a pivotal one in Obama’s presidency.

Anonymous “National Day Of Rage” Protests Over #Ferguson Fizzle

Chicago-Day-of-Rage

Update to this story. Maybe once the outside agitators stop agitating, the local folks can actually finish the investigation in peace…

Via Daily Caller:

Thursday’s “National Day Of Rage” planned by the hacktivist group Anonymous against the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. failed to materialize in any remotely significant way.

Anonymous had called for a protest in 37 cities. A Facebook posting dated Thursday shows that organizers had also envisioned nationwide protests in the early evening in dozens of additional cities — everywhere from Helena, Mont. (pop. 29,134) to Perryville, Mo. (pop. 8,225). The protests were a huge dud.

Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson Under 24-Hour Police Protection, Says He Can’t Go Out…

Nothing to worry about here…

HOUSTON, Texas – A new letter from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) admits that illegal aliens were being allowed to board planes using Notice to Appear forms they received after entering the U.S. illegally. The revelation directly contradicts a TSA statement last month denying such allegations to various media outlets, including Breitbart News. In July Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby broke the news that the TSA was letting illegal aliens board planes using Notice to Appear forms; subsequently, a TSA spokesperson publicly attacked Darby on Twitter, insisting that his report was “completely wrong.”

Al Sharpton To Jesse Jackson On Eclipsing Him As Country’s Top Race Baiter: “Deal With It”…

I’m a bigger scumbag, deal with it.

Via Mediaite:

Rev. Al Sharpton sees himself as having surpassed Jesse Jackson as the face of modern civil rights battles and he’s not afraid to say so.

“I think he’s (Jackson) now realized that he’s older now,” Sharpton says in a new Politico profile. “And he realizes that I’ve come into my own and he’s got to deal with it.”

The profile looks at how Sharpton, an MSNBC host, transformed himself from local race agitator to a top player in politics and close adviser to the Obama White House. It homes in on Sharpton’s role in Ferguson, MO, the city rocked by the police shooting of 18-year-old black man Michael Brown.
