Republican Governor Witch Hunt While World Is On Fire

In case you haven't noticed, typical Socialists dirty politics are in play.   Socialists and the lame stream left wing media are going after Republican Governors that are presumed candidates for the Presidency.  What a surprise.  So, cases are being made against Scott Walker of Wisconsin related to his political activities, Chris Christie of New Jersey specific to some stupid bridge closing and now Rick Perry of Texas because he vetoed funding for a state agency headed by a woman convicted of drunk driving as a means of pushing her to resign.   These things are happening because Walker and Christie have pushed back on public employee unions and collective bargaining and Perry called out the National Guard to secure our border.  If not for the Michael Brown case in St. Louis, which is now the focus of the lame stream left wing media, they would be harping about these Republican Governors every day. 

Of course, the world is on fire.  We have race riots in St. Louis. IRS Dirty Tricks and the Veterans Affairs Scandal get worse by the day.  The economy stinks as ten million Americans have dropped out of the labor force.  50 million Americans are on Food Stamps and Welfare, up 20 million since Obama was elected.   More than 10 million Americans are now collecting Disability Benefits, which come right out of the Social Security Trust Fund that is headed toward bankruptcy.   ObamaCare is a train wreck.  Our National Debt is approaching $18 Trillion with no end in sight.  Let's not forget about Hillary Clinton's roll in the murders in Benghazi.  We have a do nothing Congress because Senator Dirty Harry Reid will not allow bills enacted by the House of Representatives, many with bipartisan support, to come up for a vote.  Yet the Socialists and the lame stream left wing media are focused on Governors Walker, Christie and Perry related to petty issues.    

I guess it is just business and usual because Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.  Frankly, business as usual is getting really old.

Missouri - Time For The Grown-Up's To Speak The Truth

The protest and riots in St. Louis must come to an end because they are counter productive and will do nothing to get at the truth, whatever it is, related to the killing of Michael Brown by a White Cop.  Further, Missouri Socialist Governor Jay Nixon, who needed Black votes to win election, just made matters even worse by calling for "vigorous prosecution" of Police Officer Darren Wilson to appease his PEEP's on the streets before a Grand Jury has reviewed the evidence.  It really is time for the Grown-Up's in the Black Community and in office to speak the truth.  If they continue to encourage and allow Protests, they should be confined to a public park, or some open field, rather than on city streets.   Businesses on those streets, including many owned by Black Business Owners are being devastated by these protests/riots.  It is important to note that after the riots that occurred in the sixties in many Black Areas in cities around the country, as a result of the destruction and looting that occurred, many of those businesses never returned leaving those areas blighted and with no jobs to this day.  Rioting Blacks destroyed their own communities, which was downright stupid and very counter productive. 

Pandering Socialist Governor Jay Nixon, President Pinocchio Obama, Liar Attorney General Eric Holder and Black Community Leaders need to put on their big boy and girl pants and say ENOUGH.  Poverty Pimps like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and others inciting these protests and riots should be sent packing by saying out loud that they are not welcome in St. Louis.   If Protests are allowed to continue, they should be confined to some area where looting and destruction are impossible so that business can resume, which is in everyone's interests.  The lame stream left wing media must be put on a tight leash because they too are sensationalizing what is happening in St. Louis for ratings.  

While this investigation needs to be finalized to determine what really happened no matter how long it takes, there should be a commitment to hire more Black Cops in Ferguson, Missouri, which is about 67% Black.  It is ridiculous that the police force does not reflect the community; however, only 6% of Blacks in Ferguson even bother to vote in local elections.   So shame on them.  As a result, the Mayor and City Council are White.  Out of 50 Cops in Ferguson only three are Black.  This happens in the Mid West, in particular, where overt, or covert racism is more alive than in the South because of family nepotism.   White Cops hire their family members who many times have been Cops for generations because the pay and pensions are pretty good.  While this Blogger does not support Affirmative Action, this is about Common Sense, not preferential  hiring.  It is only Common Sense that a good number of Cops in Ferguson, Missouri should be Black.   This may not have changed the killing of Michael Brown because it is very possible that a Black Cop would have reacted the very same way as Darren Wilson, the White Cop that killed Brown after he was attacked by him; but at least this would not be a Black and White issue.    

And, since Blacks were actually better off when George W Bush was President than when Obama took over six years ago, it is time for Obama to stop dividing the nation and to implement pro-growth, free market economics, rather than Socialist Schemes that continue to destroy jobs, hurting minorities the most.   Unemployment in Ferguson, Missouri is more than 13%, double the national rate.  And, no doubt it is actually much worse in Ferguson as many of those people protesting on the streets are on Welfare and Food Stamps and therefore they are not in these numbers.  Typical family assets in Ferguson average just $10,000 when the national average is $30,000.  After spending trillions of dollars on the War On Poverty since the Great Society, 26% of Blacks still live in poverty, which is more than 10 million Americans.  This is more than double the percentage of Whites living in poverty.   This is the case because many living in poverty of all colors are functionally illiterate and they lack marketable job skills because inner city public schools have often failed to educate.     

Poverty continues for many reasons that must be addressed starting with 7 out of 10 Black babies being born out of wedlock.  And our public schools in the inner city often do not educate these children as 32% of Blacks do not graduate from high school.  Grown-Up's of all colors need to speak the truth to solve problems in the inner cities of our country.   Until the truth be told, nothing will change.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon Is A Democrat

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has ordered local, county and state police to stop the riots happening in St. Louis as a result of Michael Brown's death at the hands of a White Cop.   Nixon tried a curfew from 12 to 5 am and that ended in gun fire and even more military style police response.  So now Governor Jay Nixon has called out the National Guard to get this situation under control.  While all this is happening, our first Black President Pinocchio Obama is vacationing on the water in a mansion in Martha's Vineyard.   Our first Black Attorney General, Liar Eric Holder has sent in the FBI to investigate this case; though it is doubtful that this will do much to calm the situation since due process must still take place whether the Black community in the nation likes it or not.  Those 40 FBI agents are badly needed in cities like Chicago to deal with Black on Black Crime that has resulted in hundreds of deaths each year and or they should be used to deal with IRS Dirty Tricks, or the Veterans Affairs Scandal.   Using 40 FBI agents to deal with this one killing by a White Cop is over kill pun intended.   

Can anyone with a brain imagine what would have been said if the Governor of Missouri, the President and Attorney General were Republicans during this race riot.  First, all of them would have immediately been called "racists" by Socialists around the country and the lame stream left wing media.   Governor Nixon is doing his job as best he can; though he does appear to be struggling to find a response that ends the violence.  The notion of No Justice No Peace, the chants coming from the Black protesters on the streets, must be re-channeled by the Governor to No Justice Without The Truth.  The Democrat Governor, President and Attorney General should help their PEEP's around the country, that voted for them and particularly the Black Community understand that until the investigation is completed, the benefit of the doubt goes to the COP, not Michael Brown the 6 foot 4 inch, 300 pound man who robbed a convenience store just a few minutes before the altercation.  Getting at the truth is the only way to restore any kind of normalcy on St. Louis streets. 

Given the facts that keep coming out, it is very probable that this killing will be ruled a justifiable homicide in the line of duty because COPS have wide protection in these cases.  The lame stream left wing media, elected officials and Black leaders need to prepare the community for this possibility.   This is not another Trayvon Martin case.  The truth is never racist.  The killing of Michael Brown is a tragedy; but no more so than the thousands of Blacks that have been killed as result of Black on Black crime.  In any case, it may very well be that the Cop was just doing his job.   If that was not the case, the evidence will eventually come out requiring prosecution.   However, the point to all of this is that if Republicans were now the Governor of Missouri, President and Attorney General, the criticism of them from Black leaders, Socialists and the lame stream left wing media would be scathing; yet it is not happening.   Funny how that works.     

The Real Tragedy In Black Inner City America

Taking of innocent life, including the 50 million abortions that have occurred in the last 40 years, many in the inner cities of our country, is a tragedy when ever and where ever it happens.   As we see riots and protests in St. Louis concerning the death of Michael Brown, if this is ruled a murder by a police officer, rather than justifiable homicide in the line of duty, the police officer should be tried and convicted.   That said, in the same time period there were two murders and 14 wounded as a result of Black on Black crime in Chicago alone in the last week.  Year to date, there have been 218 murders in inner city Black Chicago.  34 of those murders have been children under the age of 18.   These statistics are just for Chicago.   If we were to add in the other inner cities of our nation, Black on Black crime would add several hundred more murders.  

These numbers are the result of Black Gang Bangers often fighting over drug turf, vendettas for past deaths and or people who just got caught in the cross fire.    These deaths have occurred not because of legal gun acquisition; but rather illegal gun acquisition.  So anyone calling for more gun control to stop this violence is shooting blanks.  Chicago has the strictest gun control laws in the country and among the highest murder rates.  The question is where are the protests concerning these murders.   While what has happened in St. Louis is a tragedy, that tragedy happens every day in our Black inner cities; yet we don't see outrage from left wing politicians, including the President and Attorney General, from Black Activists, or from the left wing lame stream media that does not even cover these stories, perhaps because they have become routine. 

While these needless deaths are a tragedy, the real tragedy in Black Inner City America is that after spending trillions of taxpayers dollars since the Great Society, 26% of Blacks still live in poverty, in our inner cities, or about 10 million Blacks.  12% of Whites live in poverty or about 39 million Americans.  So, Blacks have a poverty rate more than double Whites.  Many of these people are in the 50 million Americans getting Food Stamps and Welfare; though obviously far more Whites in real numbers than Blacks are on the dole.  The Black Unemployment Rate is double the White unemployment rate as well because many of these people are functionally illiterate with no marketable job skills.   While 20% of all Americans do not graduate from high school,  32% of Blacks fail to graduate from high school, which is a sure road to continued poverty.  7 out of 10 Black babies each year are born out of wedlock to single Mom's presumably on Welfare with no Dad in the picture.  Though perhaps not true in all cases, the odds are pretty good that this leads to kids with problems. 

These numbers are the real tragedy in Black Inner City America because it is often these numbers contributing to the hopelessness and deaths in the Black Community.   Until all of these numbers improve by personal responsibility and Black leaders willing to call it like it is, we will continue to see misery, pain and suffering in the Black Community.  Fortunately, there is a glimmer of hope.   While 26% of Blacks live in poverty, 74% of Blacks, or about 29 million Americans have made it into the mainstream in the last 40 years by hard work, often over coming obstacles to success, just like all generations of Americans of all colors.  These successful Blacks, like all Middle and Upper Class Americans, earned high school and college degrees giving them job skills that are marketable.  The key to success and upward mobility like always is Focus, Discipline and Passion to live the American Dream.  It does not happen any other way.

St Louis Riots & Protests - The Truth Is On Trial

What we are seeing in St. Louis, related to the Riots and Protests occurring because of the shooting death of Michael Brown by Police Officer Darren Wilson in the line of duty, is the racial divide that exists in the United States.   We don't have the facts yet, however, Blacks are calling this shooting a murder.   It is not a murder until a jury says it is a murder.  While there are many homicides that occur each year as result of Black on Black crime that are murders, to call this killing a murder before we have the facts just inflames the Black Community.  And, it is a disservice to our nation.  There are two investigations going on; one local and one by 40 FBI agents sent in by Liar Attorney General Eric Holder.   In addition, we need to see the result of the autopsy report to determine not only the number of bullets fired at Brown and the trajectory; but whether Brown was intoxicated on drugs or alcohol that could have caused his aggressive behaviors.

The video showing Michael Brown and his sidekick Dorian Johnson committing a Strong Arm Robbery at the nearby convenience store just a few minutes before the altercation with the police officer is absolutely relevant to this case because it demonstrates Brown's aggressive behaviors.   Michael Brown has been portrayed as an otherwise good kid and innocent 18 year old "teenager" and high school graduate on his way to college.   The reality is that Michael Brown was a 6 foot 4 inch 300 pound man, that a few minutes before he was killed, robbed a convenience store stealing a $50 box of cigars.  In doing so, he physically accosted the store clerk and exhibited very aggressive behaviors that were captured on video.   We also need to know more about both Brown and his friend Johnson to better understand their personal history, which would give us an indication of their aggressive tendencies.  No doubt, if this case goes to trial all of these factors will come out. 

It is highly doubtful that 28 year old Officer Darren Wilson was anywhere near the size of Michael Brown; but that remains to be seen.  What has been reported is that Brown attacked Wilson in his police car and that a shot was fired while they both scuffled in the car.  Wilson apparently suffered bruises because of the attack, which if true have no doubt been documented.   Besides these facts so far, there is no way to know what finally motivated Officer Darren Wilson to shoot to kill Michael Brown.  Since Wilson, who was on the police force for six years is reported to be very mild mannered with a clean record, we can only surmise that he feared for his life; but again all of this remains to be seen and proven. 

The racial divide in our country, made worse by our first Black President, often makes it impossible for common sense and in this case fairness to prevail.   Officer Darren Wilson is innocent until proven guilty.   That is just how our legal system works.  Blacks on the streets of St. Louis, spurred on by Black Poverty Pimps and the Black Panthers that make their living off the misery of the poor, are all screaming No Peace Without Justice when they should be saying No Justice Without Truth.  Until the facts all come out, Truth Is On Trial.   Even if Officer Darren Wilson acted properly in the line of duty, the politics will most likely require a lengthy trial.  And, after dealing with this case for a miserable year or two, if Wilson is found innocent, there will still be Blacks in America that will call him a murderer, threatening his life.   Sadly, it is what it is.  Why on earth would anyone want to be a Cop in the inner cities of our country.

The Militarization Of US Police Departments - Why?

When the Police Department in Boston basically declared Marshall Law to capture the Boston Bombers, we saw the extent of all the military hardware used by local police.   We saw it again recently in St. Louis to put down riots and looting as a result of the killing of Michael Brown.   Under a government program in place since the 90's called 1033, the Defense Department is making available military equipment, often for free, to Local Police Departments.  Local Police Departments are being given military garb, grenade launchers, helicopters, machine guns and other automatic weapons, tank like vehicles and even military aircraft to patrol city streets.   SWAT Teams are now being used for routine police actions.  Local Police Departments are turning into military units on our city streets. 

While the police do need the right equipment to deal with drug lords and Gang Bangers, why on earth do they need this equipment to deal with typical crimes.  This is about the Boys playing with their new toys; but in the process they are terrorizing the American people.  This Blogger once saw the ATF literally attack the home of a neighbor, an old man and his wife from Latin America, suspected of drug sales.   The ATF came with automatic weapons and broke the door down.  We never saw the old couple again.  Their home was seized and sold.   

This Blogger believes that the federal government, in the name of Homeland Security, is purposely arming local police departments to deal with the day that we see the civil strife and riots on our streets that will come from the economic collapse of the United States.   Those in power fear the rise of the Tea Party; though not violent in any way, that they see as anti-government.  It is true that most Tea Party members are opposed to big government favoring instead limited Constitutional government, as was intended by our Founding Fathers.  We see the government as the problem and not the solution.  However, it is not the Tea Party government elites and bureaucrats need to fear; but rather the 50 million people on Welfare and Food Stamps that will surely riot when those monies stop because the government simply cannot borrow any more money to  provide for so many people on the dole.  That is the real threat to our country. 

Homeland Security has purchased thousands of assault rifles, the same AK-15's that Socialists want to ban from private ownership and millions of rounds of ammunition to use against who?  Homeland Security is focused on the internal security of the United States.  Obviously, Homeland Security sees a threat from the American people. Arming Local Police Departments with military equipment is part of this story.  All of us that have learned the lessons of history recognize that we need to fear big, over reaching government that has frequently murdered its own citizens.  Don't think it can't happen in the US because it has happened many times in history and even in the US.  The American people should stand up and say NO to the militarization of our Local Police Departments.   They don't need all this equipment to keep the peace.  The equipment they have is designed to make war on the American people.  We don't need the Gestapo patrolling our city streets and that is where we are headed.   

Riots In St. Louis - The Real Story

It seems like every year a White cop kills a Black young man somewhere in the country in the line of duty.  When it happens, no matter the circumstances, it often sparks protests in the Black Community charging Racism.   It has happened again.  This time in Ferguson, Missouri, a Black suburb of St. Louis.  Officer Darren Wilson, with no history of inappropriate behaviors, was responding to a Strong Arm Robbery Call from a convenience store in Ferguson ten minutes earlier.  He apparently encountered Michael Brown and his side kick and now witness Dorian Johnson nearby who fit the description of the robbers.  An altercation occurred and Michael Brown was shot dead.  This is what we know as of now.   Whenever an "innocent" American of any race is killed by someone in an arm of government, there should be an investigation and swift justice.  If Officer Wilson acted incorrectly, he should be prosecuted; however, it appears that the Cop was just doing his job.  Time will tell. 

The real story here is not just the protests that are taking place; but the Black trouble makers, many of whom came from out of the area to riot, destroy private property and loot the stores in the area using the death of Michael Brown as their excuse for mayhem and robbery.  And of course, the poverty pimps, that have gotten rich off the misery of the poor, always show up when one of these incidents occurs in this case Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers throwing gasoline on the fire.  These characters shout No Peace Without Justice, when they should be saying No Justice Without The Truth.  In the mean time, both Socialist President Obama and Liar Attorney General Eric Holder stick their noses into the case to satisfy their PEEP's in the Black Community, so now the Justice Department is involved in the investigation.  

But what this Blogger wants to know is why are there no protests about the several thousand Black on Black murders committed each year, primarily in our inner cities, by Black Gang Bangers in their fight for drug territory.   Where is Obama and Holder concerning those murders.  And or, where is the outrage about the innocent Black kids that are often killed in the cross fire by these Black Thugs.  While every life is precious, so a killing by a Cop of an innocent person, if this is one, is tragic, but what about all these other murders.  Given the war zones that exist in our inner cities, it is rare that a Cop does wrong against an innocent person. 

But, the Black on Black crime that happens every day is real and growing.   Why aren't Black leaders in the streets of our inner cities every weekend protesting these murders to stop them.  And, where is the lame street left wing media related to Black on Black crime.  The answer is that they are all missing in action because it is not politically correct to point out the dysfunction that exists in the Black inner city, where 7 out of 10 Black babies are born out of wedlock and Welfare and Food Stamps are a way of life for millions.  Black young people, hanging around on street corners occurs because they have no jobs in the Obama economy.   This is the real story and tragedy.

However, what is equally concerning in this most recent incident in St. Louis is the militarization of  city police forces around the country.  Armed by Homeland Security, presumably to deal with the unrest and civil strife that will eventually come from the economic collapse of the United States, whenever the police force comes out today to quell violence, it is as though they are American Soldiers on the streets of Iraq or Afghanistan.  The police are dressed and armed for war, not civil service.  This is dangerous and will result in over reaction as apparently has happened in St. Louis.  The police should be in place to keep the peace, not make war on American citizens.   The police need certain equipment to deal with drug lords and Gang Bangers; but they don't need military style assault weapons and tanks on our city streets.   All of this has gone too far in the name of Homeland Security giving us all reasons to fear big government.
