Obama World: In Brooklyn, North Korea, Cuba, Evil Triumphant

Update: In cyberspace the surrender to North Korea is complete. Sony Pictures Caves to More Hacker Demands – Wipes ‘Interview’ From Social Media.

In Chicago the Mayor’s son, who is white, was assaulted and ironically put into a choke-hold because the police were not where they usually are in front of the Mayor’s house. That’s what happens when the police go missing.

In New York The time is past for Bill de Blasio to resign.

“What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”

The Mayor must surely be aware that this is not constitutionally protected free speech any more than shouting “Fire!” in a crowded movie theater. That is incitement to riot and mayhem. When chants like that are erupting in the streets, you do not tell your cops to put on body cameras. You tell them to put on body armor. You do not hear those calls to tear down the fabric of civilization and tell your cops to get out of the way. You tell them to get out the water cannons. You do not hold secret meetings with the protest leaders to tell them how sorry you are that your police officers are so awful. You hold public meetings with your police officers and tell them that the executive branch of the city government has their backs and that they have the full support and resources of the city in doing the dangerous and necessary work they do every day. You do not remind those calling for the murder of police officers that you feel their pain. You reassure every citizen that they will be protected and that they not only live in a nation of laws, but a city of laws as well, and that those laws will be enforced regardless of whatever social unrest is taking place. And if that means that the laws are enforced at the end of the baton, the riot shield, the tear gas canister or even the gun, so be it.

Civil society or animal carnage. That is the choice. Those are the sides.


Al Sharpton loaded the bullets. Bill DeBlasio fired the shots. The results: two cops dead in Brooklyn.

In Hollywood, always full of ideas for courage on celluloid, Obama supporters could not muster sufficient guts to even sign a letter.

In Cuba, Barack Obama gave the Castro brothers for free the American capitulation they have wanted for so long.

As Winter darkens our skies we see the consequences of Obama’s occupation of the White House.

Evil is on the march and triumphant. Barack Obama? He’s on vacation for 17 days.

Two NYPD cops executed in Brooklyn, suspect suicides and the blood is on the hands of everyone who marched on behalf of lawbreakers Michael Brown and Eric Garner. It was an execution of law officers:

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of the two officers, whose names were being withheld pending family notification of their deaths.

The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank in their heads by the lone gunman, who approached them on foot from the sidewalk at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues in Bed-Stuy.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot through their front passenger window.

“They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs” wrote the killer on anti-social media. The cops shot belonged to racial minorities in the racial minority majority New York Police Department. To the families of Wenjian Liu, and Rafael Ramos all decent law abiding Americans should send condolences. Those that marched with Sharpton or voted for Barack or cheered DeBlasio deserve condemnation. Sharpton, Barack and DeBlasio deserve the punishments, and tortures, of Hell.

  1. Tonight makes me very proud that in 2008 I said Party Unity, My Ass the anti-Democratic Party and Barack Obama. I am proud of every word and every vote made in opposition to the events that have come to pass. The World of Barack Obama is evil.

    VIDEO: NYPD officers turn away from Mayor de Blasio as he enters police presser for murdered cops

    PIX11 — Police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio as he walked into the police press conference about the two NYPD officers shot and killed execution-style in Brooklyn.

    De Blasio weaved through the officers on his way to the presser with Police Commissioner Bill Bratton at Woodhull Hospital Saturday evening.

    Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were taken to Woodhull after 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, shot and killed them execution style outside of the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant before 3 p.m.

  3. Absolutely horrific act of violence . May these heroes rest in peace and their families comforted by G-d during this holy season.
    Where is the condemnation from the race pimps/hustlers and public officials who did not support the police??? Blood is on their hands!!!!

    The killer’s hash tag is an indictment of Obama, Holder and Sharpton.

    Jointly and severally each of them has stoked division, strife and anger culminating in mob violence and now this killing.

    The pattern we see here is a familiar one.

    Act I: A black thug is killed in the commission of a crime by a police officer

    Act II: Obama/Holder/Sharpton reject due process, play the race card, demonize the police, and demand instant justice.

    Act II Obama/Holder/Sharpton incite mob action which results in protests, then mayhem and now murder

    Act IV: Obama/Holder/Sharpton then seek plausible deniability, call for peace and hold prayer sessions.

    Epilogue: Big portrays Obama/Holder/Sharpton as men of peace, when they are in fact agent provocateurs, who benefit political and financially from inciting riots. How ironic that the legacy of our post racial president would turn out to be this.

    Here is Christian Adams, former Assistant Attorney General on the subject.


    “Obama and Holder stoked division, strife and anger in Ferguson, culminating in last night’s violence.

    Sure, President Obama called for calm in Ferguson. But that was after the damage was done. Calls for calm came after Attorney General Eric Holder tripped the time bomb during his visit to Ferguson by meeting with activists and agitators and assuring them the administration was on their side against the police.

    When Holder complained about the police, when Obama talked about problems with policing in the United States, everyone understood the administration’s loyalties.

    President Obama’s call for calm in Ferguson provided the administration deniability that the administration bore any responsibility for the riots, even after Holder flooded the zone with swarms of FBI agents and Civil Rights Division lawyers to investigate the police.

    The Obama administration led their legions to believe that if Officer Wilson was not charged, it was due to racial injustice, racial injustice Obama would help remedy one way or another. Holder and Obama made the protesters think their cause was just and correct.

    It was no accident that President Obama named Vanita Gupta acting head of the Civil Rights Division weeks ago. Gupta is beloved by the radical left for her militant hostility toward law enforcement officers. It’s why another Justice Department lawyer, Karla Dobinski, who illegally railroaded police officers in Louisiana, still hasn’t been fired.

    When the mob thinks Obama is on the mob’s side, the mob will be on the side of Obama. This is a president schooled in the art of flexing left-wing mob muscle. For decades, mobs have been useful to Obama’s cause of fundamental transformation.

    Consider a 1988 mob in Chicago. Obama, according to Stanly Kurtz in his book Radical in Chief, was deeply involved in a group called UNO that “favored civil disobedience and tactics that went to extremes.” In a demonstration that Obama helped plan, a mob of one-hundred activists burst into a private boardroom where bank officials were discussing plans to develop a landfill with Waste Management Corporation. Obama and his UNO gang delivered their message of opposition and intimidation

    When Eric Holder was at Columbia, Holder helped a mob take over the Navy ROTC office until the demand was met that it be renamed the “Malcom-X lounge.”

    Michelle Obama, dressed all in black, helped a mob take over the dean’s office at Harvard Law School to demand that the administration hire professors on the basis of race.

    Mobs, to these people, are seen sometimes as partners, not threats.

  5. It was not difficult to predict that some heinous, sickening, UNJUST action like the murder of these two public servants would happen. That makes it no less tragic, heartbreaking, and fucking infuriating. Obama, Holder, DeBlasio, had an opportunity to be positive role models for young men, especially young black men – about whom Obama has expressed much concern, even developing programs to improves their lives. They had a responsibility to do so. But they chose, instead, to use their positions to incite more hatred, declaring racial prejudice and injustice motives in the killings of Trayvon Martin, Brown, and Garner. While these deaths were regrettable, there was no proof that the killings were racially motivated.

    Holder, especially, as a lawyer and an officer of the court, never-mind, US Attorney General, knew that here was no proof of racial injustice. Demonstrating his own racial prejudice, he used the incidents to launch a campaign against white law enforcement officers and white people, in general. He’s not fit to serve this country in the position of dog catcher, let alone Attorney General. He should be disbarred in every state in which he is a member of the bar.

    Obama is a second rate hustler who worked his half-white ass off to, in his words, earn his “street cred”. He was used by a bunch of stupid white people in the Dim Party to prevent a Clinton from becoming president. He knew he wasn’t qualified to be president. He said he wasn’t qualified when they asked him to run. And yet, he agreed to be their candidate – to do their bidding. His white backers in the Dim party said he talked well, and was really clean – I think it was Dirty Harry who said that. Screamin’ Dean and Nano were running interference for him, making sure no tough questions were asked. Of course, there was no one to ask the tough questions. MSM hadn’t planned to ask any of him. Give the black guy a pass. If Barack had any genuine pride instead of delusions of grandeur he would have been incensed that he wasn’t asked the tough questions, treated like a real candidate instead of a puppet of the white folks who propped him up.

    Sharpton is a damn idiot, and anyone who takes a damn thing he says seriously, attends his rallies, listens to his so-called sermons is a bigger damn idiot.

    The families of these dead police officers can place some of the blame on Nano, Harry, Dean, and all the damn Dims, as well as the media for these tragic deaths. And, if at any time, any of the guilty parties, whether DeBlasio, Sharpton, Harry, Kerry, or any of the other sorry ass race baiters, calls for assistance from law enforcement, their calls need to go unanswered.

  6. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/12/20/police-unions-others-blast-de-blasio-after-shooting-deaths-of-2-nypd-cops/

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Police union officials blasted Mayor Bill de Blasio Saturday, saying the blood of two NYPD cops who were shot and killed in Brooklyn is on his hands.

    “There’s blood on many hands tonight. Those that incited violence on the streets under the guise of protest that tried to tear down what NYPD officers did every day. We tried to warn it must not go on, it cannot be tolerated,” Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said. “That blood on the hands starts at City Hall in the office of the mayor.”

    “Those who allowed this to happen will be held accountable,” he added.

    The Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted: “The blood of 2 executed police officers is on the hands of Mayor de Blasio. May God bless their families and may they rest in peace.”

    On Saturday, some officers turned their backs on de Blasio as he walked into the hospital following the shooting deaths of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

    The mayor’s office later issued a statement responding to the PBA, saying, “It’s unfortunate that in a time of great tragedy, some would resort to irresponsible, overheated rhetoric that angers and divides people. Mayor de Blasio understands this is the time when we must come together to support the families and friends of those brave officers New York City lost tonight – and the entire NYPD community.”

    Others also took to social media to place blame on the mayor.

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki tweeted: “Sickened by these barbaric acts, which sadly are a predictable outcome of divisive anti-cop rhetoric of #ericholder & #mayordeblasio. #NYPD”

    NY State Sen. Greg Ball posted a statement on Facebook that said, in part, “Today, our NYPD and other law enforcement and emergency responders have walking targets on their backs and are in grave danger. Mince no words. The Mayor is directly responsible for their safety or lack thereof.”

    Rep. Peter King said it is “time for elected officials to stand by the men and women of law enforcement and end the demeaning of police officers and grand juries.”

    Police said the suspect, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, approached the passenger window of a marked police car and opened fire, striking Ramos and Liu in the head.

    It happened around 2:47 p.m. Saturday at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

    “They were, quite simply, assassinated — targeted for their uniform,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. “They were ambushed and murdered.”

  7. They got what they wanted:

    12/13/2014 – “Million Marchers” in Murray Hill neighborhood of NYC chant: “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”

  8. DeBlasio is persona non grata with the New York’s finest. He has vilifed them and what comes around goes around. They shun him when he enters to room. They ban him from their funerals. He is public enemy #1. He is a disgrace to the office he holds. In those respects he is like Obama and Holder. And Chris Van Holen who plays the race card as well.

  9. Obama was impressed that the leader of North Korea would pledge to work jointly with him to catch the hackers who did this.

    Soon, he and Holder will be working with OJ to find the real killer of Simpson’s former wife and Ron Goldman.

    Obama sternly rebuked Sony for caving in to the hackers.

    This coming from a man who has caved in to Russia, China, Iran and Cuba?

    Obama also chastised Sony for failing to contact the White House to elicit their help.

    Turns out they did contact the White House several times, and all they got was water mellon talk.

    Obama need to grow dreadlocks.


  10. 12/13/2014 – “Million Marchers” in Murray Hill neighborhood of NYC chant: “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”

    This is outrageous!!!! Calling for the murder of police officers.

    I agree that not all cops are good, but calling for murder of mainly good, brave people that risk their lives every day to protect the American public…they should all go to trial and spend time in jail.

  11. The reaction from DailyKooks to the shooting of two NYPD cops:


    Wow. That’s extreme and scary and, gee, you say it happened in New York City?

    The New York City where Eric Garner’s killer was not prosecuted? Imagine that.

    In a somewhat surprising twist of actual journalism, Yahoo even linked the two incidents right off the bat:

    The shooting comes at a time when police in New York and nationwide are being heavily criticized for their tactics following the chokehold death of Eric Garner, a black man who was stopped by police for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes and could be heard on an amateur video gasping, “I can’t breathe” as he was being arrested.

    I fear for this nation. I truly do. And, just to be clear, I do not believe these officers deserved what happened to them (as was suggested in the comments), but I think America has been a tinderbox since Mike Brown’s murder. I do feel like this was almost bound to happen, sooner or later, because police forces all around the country do not appear to be listening to the people they police.

    That’s why we call them KOOKS.

  12. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/12/20/police-robbery-reported-across-the-street-from-mayors-home/

    The teenage son of Mayor Rahm Emanuel was the victim of a robbery outside the mayor’s Lakeview home Friday night, a spokesperson from the mayor’s office confirms.

    Police were called to the 4200 block of North Hermitage at 10:05 p.m. Friday for a report of a robbery on the street where there would normally already be a police presence.

    Emanuel’s 17-year-old son went out to make a phone call when he was jumped by two men who stole the teen’s cell phone.

    A police report obtained by the Chicago Tribune says that he was put in a chokehold by one of the suspects and punched in the face by the other. Emanuel reportedly suffered a fat lip and chipped tooth.

    Emanuel’s spokesperson Kelley Quinn released a statement saying, “Yesterday evening Mayor Emanuel’s son Zach was assaulted in a robbery during which his phone was stolen. He sustained injuries that required medical treatment, but was able to join the family for a long planned trip. The Mayor’s focus is on his son’s well-being, and as parents, he and Amy ask that the media respect their family’s privacy at this time.”

    Police officers are assigned to the mayor’s home front and back 24 hours a day. There are also cameras at both ends of the block.

    Dan Hill lives on the block. Hill says he’s seen an increased police presence on the block Saturday.

    “There’s been at least one more paddy wagon out here this morning and, just a couple unmarked cars up and down the street,” Hill said. “Usually there’s just two, one in front and one in the back.”

    Police say no weapon was used. The suspects remain at large.

  13. I’m so angry about all of this.
    No one will be held responsible.The race baiters will continue unabashed, more innocents will be murdered.
    Meanwhile Obama basks in the sun in Hawaii, gloating that he’not finished yet, wait till the 4th quarter and who can blame him?…As the Republicans do nothing but support his assine polices against America and humanity

  14. Included in article linked immediately above, a gutsy tweet from a former NY gov:
    George E. Pataki @GovernorPataki
    Sickened by these barbaric acts, which sadly are a predictable outcome of divisive anti-cop rhetoric of #ericholder & #mayordeblasio. #NYPD
    10h ago
    #ABC7NY is trying to devote its entire early morning coverage to the assassinations, but Rob Nelson and female host have been thrust into uncomfortable roles and it shows. heh heh

  15. This rude about-face of the racial stirrings makes for bad optics, the Obama’s having just proclaimed, justified their vacay and departed the continent….

  16. Thanks to admin for not letting this moment go by in silence. Sorry to be such a blog hog today, but UK’s daily mail has taken on this subject in its inimitable style. Even moveon has a petition demanding deblahs resign:
    Police officers turn their backs on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio as he is accused of having ‘blood on his hands’ over anti-police sentiments

    Hundreds are attacking Mayor Bill de Blasio, President Barack Obama and Al Sharpton after the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn on Saturday
    Many are saying that Mayor de Blasio has ‘blood on his hands’ and ‘should be charged with murder’
    Retired NYPD detective Harry Houck told CNN, ‘I guess Al Sharpton got what he wanted’
    A Move On petition demanding that Mayor de Blasio resign already has thousands of signatures
    Sharpton has released a statement saying, ‘We plan to hold a press conference in the morning to express our outrage and our condolences to the families and the police department’
    Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik said, ‘De Blasio, Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands’
    Hundreds of officers lined the street at the Woodhull medical Center and silently saluted as the bodies of the two police officers were driven away Saturday evening


  17. I just know that Obama and his coharts are thrilled about this terrible crime.
    He has advocated violence and retribution from the gitgo!!!

    Remember in 08 he said. If they bring a knife we bring a Gun. 👿

  19. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/20/sick-cheers-for-cop-killer-in-brooklyn.html

    “You’re a bunch of killers,” a passerby told cops standing sentry there, according to one police source. And short distance from the crime scene — where a crowd was backed up by the police tape — a few members of the crowd repeated “fuck the cops” within earshot of a Daily Beast reporter.

    One 30-year-old local who gave his first name only as Carlos, didn’t hear the fatal gunfire but saw the hysteria aftewards and walked to the police tape.

    A lot of people were clapping and laughing,” he said.

    “Some were saying, ‘They deserved it,’ and another was shouting at the cops, ‘Serves them right because you mistreat people!’” he said.

    For Carlos, who walks his 10-year old daughter to school pass the police cruiser posted at Tompkins and Myrtle avenues, the double homicide—just a football field from his home of over a decade—was tragic.

    “I walk my kid to school, passed that cop car everyday,” he said. “That’s their post. What would people rather not have the cops here to keep us safe?”

    “Nobody deserves this,” he added. “If they really wanted to get revenge they should have gone to Staten Island and found the cops that killed Eric Garner.”

    Others seemed less sympathetic towards the police, and even seemed to resent that the cops didn’t take as much notice of the area’s other crimes. While violent offenses are dramatically down in Bed Stuy, pockets of violence persist here.

    “Gunshots is usual for this neighborhood,” said Kenneth Otero, 30, who lives in a ninth-floor apartment across the street in Tompkins Houses, the housing projects Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were assigned to.

    He says he heard the two shots that killed Liu and Ramos.

    “I was watching ‘Daniel The Tiger’ with my kid and I heard two shots like ‘boom-boom,’” he said.

    But he believes the cops are going too far in the investigation of the murder of two of their own, with scores of cops and idling vehicles, and powerful spotlights turning the night of Tompkins Street into a surreal daylight.

    “They’ve been here all day and now tonight,” he said. “This has happened before and it wasn’t this big spectacle.”

    Liu and Rafael were there to protect against the common criminality Otero mentioned. It is so common, that 22-year-old Yonas Tenayo was dodging bullets just the night before on her way home to her safer neighborhood of Clinton.

    “Each day I walk through here,” she said, pointing to the slots of walkway through the monolithic hi-rises that loom over the area.

    “Yesterday I was walking home at around 7 [p.m.] and I hear eight gunshots.

    “I ran for my life,” said Tenayo, who is a home attendant for an autistic resident, but wants to transfer because of the crime.

    “It’s been three weeks,” she said. “But I don’t want to be here anymore.”

  20. Holder’s comments. 🙁
    “Our nation must always honor the valor — and the sacrifices — of all law enforcement officers with a steadfast commitment to keeping them safe. This means forging closer bonds between officers and the communities they serve, so that public safety is not a cause that is served by a courageous few, but a promise that’s fulfilled by police officials and citizens working side by side.”


  21. Even the left of Moderate Voice has a few well deserved scathing words for De Blasio:


    Once at the Chief’s press conference, in contrast to the quiet sincerity of the Chief, De Blasio spoke hackneyed words, reading off a paper by rote, giving the impression he was seemingly ill prepared, insincere, and didnt know what to say to lead, having lost his usual ‘take nothing too seriously’ gab. Some say he is not in any way mayor-ly and did not reassure the citizenry, and has no leadership plan to protect officers or the citizens from further violence, that instead he used the tired trope that ‘this is all about the ‘families who lost the two officers,’ and as the leader of Gotham, one of the most ddeply diverse and populated and financially and culturally important cities in the world, said he didnt want to say anymore
    Indeed it is about the families, of course it is, and the Chief of NY Police said so with sincerity and gravitas compared to De Blasio. But also in a city of millions, it seems to escape De Blasio that it is also about the huge number of New Yorkers who have suffered the horrors of the rampant violence of the bombings of the Trade Towers, the loss of near 3000 innocent souls, and the equally horrific loss of over 350 NYPD and NYFD who had rushed to rescue others…


  22. A quick look around the web to see it the prig blogs featured articles about the two dead police officers. Several had little, if anything to say. DU, which has been rabid in its condemnation of police following Brown and Garner, and supportive of the protests, has only a silent thread in honor of the fallen officers. A silent thread. No smart-ass commentary. No outrage about the injustice. A silent thread. Now there’s courage for you.

    Salon – nothing. Common Dreams, a collection of prog voices – nothing. Black Agenda – Nothing.

    Maybe they will share some thoughts later. Possibly, haven’t had time as yet. If they do not, if these voices so quick to condemn police officers throughout this country as racists, choose not to condemn this violence against these two men, this will confirm their total lack of credibility and their warped sense of justice. Their silence on the matter will effectively condone the violent actions against these police officers – not marked for death because they were racists, but because they were cops.

  23. Blame the victim–unless he is black.

    That’s what Obama, Holder, Sharpton, and most of all big media do.

    Not a sparrow false to earth but some racist somewhere caused it.

    And if we Ivy League blacks wish to divide society in this way, and cut off the poor communities where the police are often the first line of defense against violent crime, why its jest politics.

    On a related note, I was greatly relieved to learn that the ever vacationing Obama was informed of this incident which had to happen on the eve of his vacation. A smell a patter speech coming–which we should all just ignore.

    Obama is meeting now as we speak with Soros operatives planning the next step in his global warming program, in follow up to his giving China a pass on the issue.

    That will be the carbon exchange which spells big money for Soros and Chairman Mo–the Canadian billionaire and UN bureaucrat who was the architect of the failed Rio Treaty. The normal go between is Robert Wolfe of UBC bank.

    Obama is putty in the hands of Wall Street.

    True to form, big media is silent about this conspiracy against America.

    The movie is getting stale.

    There are no surprises left.

    I need to move on.

    That may be my New Years Resolution.

  24. Blame the victim (continued)

    Whose responsibility is it if cops in Arizona come across a North Korean commando team fixing to attack the electric grid? They would probably think it was the federal government’s and act in support of an Army response. But they would be right to presume the Army would respond if North Korean commandos were on the prowl. It would never enter their minds that the Army would say it was the rancher’s problem. If a business has been ruined by a cyberattack from Iran or North Korea cybercommandos, why should the president admonish the company for “caving in”? Shouldn’t the company remind the president that he’s at least partially responsible for defending the territory of the United States?

    Cyber-attacks by foreign governments on private individuals or corporations in the US are no longer a hypothetical. As the Sony case showed, they are an actuality. And as September 11 showed, sub-national organizations like al-Qaeda will not hesitate to deliver physical attacks on American soil. The Taliban grafted both the Sony and September 11 imagery into a single scene when it proclaimed that it’s recent attack on the children of the elite in Pakistan were “only a trailer” of what was to come. That Taliban movie may be coming to a theater near you.

    And if such an attack comes, how will it be regarded? A law enforcement problem, an act of war? Something in-between? Part of the problem is that boundaries between “war” and “crime” and “peace” have been blurred by the Commander in Chief himself. If groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda are to be met by lawfare or police action, how then should the administration respond to North Korea?

    The fact that president Obama can plausibly say ‘Sony it is your fault for not standing up to North Korea’ shows how little anyone expects any more from the Chief. What does a “single sovereign” actually do in these days in of cross-border cyber attacks or when his territory is raided by “non-state” actors. If we’ve abolished War then we might as well abolish the office of Commander in Chief. What does the C-in-C do besides give advice to corporations?

    Cyberwarfare between sovereign nations has been ongoing for some time. For example, Iran’s centrifuges were attacked by a country best left unnamed; by the same token US bank records were hacked by another country, located in the Far East, also best unnamed. In each case the target country has probably retaliated as best it could. So things went.

    The Sony case is different in that the perpetrating country openly claims responsibility. By its open avowal North Korea has thrown down the gauntlet, daring the United States government to respond in a clear-cut fashion. Until now cyberewarfare between nations could be likened to NBA players fouling each other when the referee wasn’t looking. Player A elbows Player B and Player B trips Player A on the return play, much to the entertainment of the onlookers. But now North Korea has brought a baseball bat on court and openly attacked Player B with it. Now what?

    Sony may play its part in retaliating against North Korea, but clearly the ball is in Single Sovereign’s court. We live in an era where government preoccupies itself with dispensing contraceptives, Obamaphones, even advice on individual criminal cases or marital relationships. By diverting its attention to these miscellaneous issues it has somewhat neglected its core duty: preserving the sovereignty of the American laws in American territory.

    Just now North Korea has decided to proclaim its innocence and has proposed to investigate itself together with the US government, a generous proposal which if not accepted, will lead to “grave consequences”. Fox News reports:

    North Korea says it can prove it is not behind the massive Sony Pictures cyberattack that has led to several e-mail leaks, threats on movie theaters and the cancellation of the release of the movie “The Interview.”

    The country has also said it proposes a joint investigation with the U.S. on the attack and if the U.S. does not agree, North Korea warns of “grave consequences,” state media says.

    What is North Korean for “give me money”?


  25. But while every network must defend itself, it’s not Sony’s job to defend itself against attacks by sovereign nations. The hack is only part of Pyongyang’s offense. They are also engaged in intimidation. In president Obama’s own words Pyongyang is imposing its censorship laws in California. They are asserting the power to legislate in the US. It would be nice if Sony would resist, but the job of protecting individuals or organizations domiciled in the US against attacks by other nations is Obama’s. It is nobody else’s. He’s the Commander in Chief.

    The president has for example asserted that the states have no business going after illegal immigrants because the defense of borders is a federal responsibility. He is jealous of that power and sued the state of Arizona for its attempts to curb illegal immigration into that state. The New York Times reported in 2012:

    The Obama administration argued that federal immigration law trumped — or pre-empted, in legal jargon — the state’s efforts. Last year, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, blocked the four provisions on those grounds, including the one the Supreme Court upheld. …

    Justice Scalia went on. “Perhaps it is, though Arizona may not think so. But to say, as the court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the president declines to enforce boggles the mind.”

    He added that Arizona and other states should not be left helpless before the “evil effects of illegal immigration.”

    Justice Kennedy responded that “federal law makes a single sovereign responsible for maintaining a comprehensive and unified system to keep track of aliens within the nation’s borders.”

    The defense of the borders is a federal responsibility. The idea that a “single sovereign” is responsible for defending US borders against foreign incursions is central to the legitimacy of Washington. To be fair, the administration has promised to do something unspecified to North Korea at a time of its choosing. It will retaliate somehow, someday.

    But if the administration’s admonitions to Sony were any indication, the “single sovereign” is less than intimidating to its potential foes. North Korea’s attack on Sony is also an indication of just how much Kim Jong-un respects president Obama.

    North Korea’s attack on Sony may the forerunner of similar attacks by other countries on US infrastructure. The American Enterprise Institute warned that the US power grid is vulnerable to a hacking attack.

    EMPs are not the only threat to the grid. In April 2013, snipers spent 19 minutes shooting up a power station near San Jose, Calif., and knocked out 17 big transformers. The utility was able to make up the power loss from other stations, but repairs took 27 days. …

    Another threat is from cyber attacks. The grid runs on software code, which means that it could be hacked. The head of NSA recently warned that he expects major attacks within the next decade, and that it is a question of “when,” not “if.”

    If the power grid goes down in a major city for an extended period of time, tens of thousand of people will die. People will be trapped in high rises. Hospitals will fail to function. Food will spoil. Water supply pumping will fail. Your cell phone will become a useless piece of plastic. Nothing will work.


    White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer conceded that he fears a President Ted Cruz will overturn President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, perhaps signaling that Cruz represents the greatest threat to the progressive left.

    “Our first 100 days we spent a lot of time signing executive orders undoing what [President George W.] Bush did, and I would like not to be sitting on a beach somewhere reading about President [Ted] Cruz doing that to us, so it’s very important to us,” Pfeiffer told the Wall Street Journal on Friday.

    Earlier in the day, Pfeiffer declared that Obama’s executive amnesty was one of the reasons that made 2014 a “year of great progress” for the “progressive agenda.” He told the Journal that from the “perspective of advancing our agenda through our pen and our phone, this has been a tremendously successful year.”

    Cruz, a potential 2016 heavyweight, would run as a bold conservative. And the conservative Texas Senator has not been ambivalent in the least about wanting to repeal Obamacare and reverse Obama’s executive amnesty.



  27. executive amnesty was one of the reasons that made 2014 a “year of great progress” for the “progressive agenda.” He told the Journal that from the “perspective of advancing our agenda through our pen and our phone, this has been a tremendously successful year.”
    If that is what that idiot believes, the two things are clear. First the progressive agenda is NOTHING MORE than a front for big business, who is the ultimate proponent of open borders. Second, advancing an agenda by through illegal actions is illegal. Third, when the Liar in Chief has no support in congress, and must resort to the game plan of a banana republic dictator, is that how they measure success. The American People are stupid when it comes to politics. That is an empirical fact. Big media will make them believe this drivel.

  28. So much of my frustration and desire to get away with it stems from a revulsion of the ignorance of the American People, the corruption of big media, and seeing how the corrupt political system works to the detriment of the American People. There will come a point where we will all go down with the ship, and there is nothing I can do to stop it. That is the frustration.

  29. Obama is always late to the party. Even when he lights the fuse, he arrives late and says things like this was horrible, and we must all hold hands and sing kumbiya. Leading from behind, with his head up his ass. Now there is a picture for you, for some aspiring artist. Also, he and skunk boy Holder need to sport dread locks.

    The people who incited these deaths through intemperate remarks and classic scapegoating are the same people who insist on political correctness for the rest of us. They call themselves “progressives”.

  31. The NYPD should just remove all of their officers from the community where those officers were killed as well as any protection around the mayor’s home. In fact, maybe they should just go on strike.

  32. Or call in sick. They could just say that they suddenly all need counseling from emotional distress caused by the tragic events and their esteemed mayor’s presence.

  33. Barack Obama is a Racist Asshole

    By Larry Johnson on December 20, 2014 at 8:58 PM

    When Trayvon was killed (in a justifiable shooting), Barack Obama beat a path to the microphones to remind us that he could have had a son that looked like Trayvon. He made similar efforts to capitalize politically on the deaths of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York as examples of police brutality.

    Now, two cops have been executed in New York by a racist mother fucker. And where is Obama? Where is his outrage?

    I hope the police tell NY Mayor DeBlasio to go fuck himself and forbid him from attending the funerals of these officers. DeBlasio helped create the atmosphere that led to the murder of these two officers.

    Now for the T-shirt, “Don’t Shoot, I’m sitting in a car.”

    Worth noting. This killer murdered a Chinese American and an Latino American.

  34. Open season in NY:

    “Only hours after two New York policemen were ambushed and executed in Brooklyn by a man claiming he wanted revenge for the death of Eric Garner, a man in the Bronx allegedly attempted to murder a third New York policeman. He only failed because his gun didn’t work when he pulled the trigger, police say.

    On Saturday night at 9 p.m., Raymond Leonardo, 18, was allegedly shooting out windows with a .357 caliber revolver when police arrived. According to law enforcement, he refused to drop the gun and aimed point blank at one policeman.

    But when he pulled the trigger, it didn’t fire, officials claim. Leonardo fled with the gun in his pocket, then was captured after running a few blocks. One police source offered a simple cause for the gun’s inability to function: “It looks like he used up all of his bullets.”


  35. Poor race-baiter Al. Maybe he should call the police.
    Hmmm, wonder how much the caller got paid for this:

    “Rev. Al Sharpton said Sunday that he’s received multiple threatening calls since the execution-style killing of two NYPD cops in what the 28-year-old gunman apparently considered vengeance for the police-involved deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.”

    SHOCK VIDEO>>> #Ferguson Protesters Chant “Pigs in a Blanket” After Two NYC Police Officers Executed

    Ferguson protesters were back out on the street Saturday night in St. Louis.

    One protester wore a skeleton mask. Another protest leader, Bassem Masri, wore a Palestinian keffiyah scarf.

    The protesters chanted “Pigs in a blanket” after two NYC police officers were shot execution style in Brooklyn Saturday afternoon.

    One Ferguson protest leader Bassem Masri, who was leading the chants in the above video, posted this tweet after the shootings.

    The police have no1 2blame but themselves4the cops getting murdered inNY #Ferguson

    Bassem Masri (@bassem_masri) December 21, 2014

    Bassem Masri was invited to meet with Eric Holder’s DOJ in November to discuss police reform.

  37. It will be a cold day in Hell before the American voters will trust another (half) black man to become President.

    Thanks to Barack Obama, Holder, Sharpton and the other racebaiters that have created a racial divide that would shame and embarrass Martin Luther King Jr.

  38. Messiah Obama and his media whores are about to learn that it is one thing to start a revolution, and quite another to control it. Their cheap political theater has cost innocent lives. Sharton has visted the White House 61 times since Obama took office.

    Will Bill de Blasio be Forced to Resign?

    Maybe. I submit that the mayor of New York cannot govern the city without the support of the police. Does Bill de Blasio have that support? Consider this exchange, overheard yesterday at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn:

    De Blasio: “We’re all in this together.”
    Unnamed police officer: “No we’re not.”

    This was after police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, shot by a crazed black Muslim named Ismaaiyl Brinsley, had been pronounced dead but before the mayor and his entourage made their way through a hospital corridor jammed with police who turned their backs on the mayor, shunning him.

    On December 3, in the aftermath of the death of Eric Garner, who died of a heart attack after resisting arrest, the mayor held a press conference and told the world that he worried that his biracial son Dante might be the victim of police brutality. “I’ve had to worry over the years,” de Blasio said, “Is Dante safe each night? And not just from some of the painful realities of crime and violence in some of our neighborhoods but safe from the very people they want to have faith in as their protectors.”

    Ten days later the mayor was back in front of the microphone praising the anti-cop protestors in New York for being peaceful. That was the protest at which one could hear this chanted refrain:

    “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”

    They got their wish.

    It was during that pacific event that two police lieutenants were, as the New York Post reported, viciously attacked by a mob. The mayor described the attack as “an incident . . . in which a small group of protesters allegedly assaulted some members of the NYPD.”


    Officers Ramos and Liu were murdered Saturday at about 3:00 in the afternoon in Brooklyn. That night in Ferguson, Mo., where the thug Michael Brown was killed by a police man after he tried to grab his gun, protestors were caught on video gleefully chanting “pigs in a blanket.” Also that night, police went to East 140th Street in New York after getting a report that a man was shooting out windows. As the Post reports: “They spotted the suspect, Raymond Leonardo, 17, and ordered him to drop the gun. Instead, he took aim at one of the officers and pulled the trigger two times, officials said.” Fortunately, Leonardo had already used all his bullets and the police were able to apprehend him.

    Former Governor George Pataki summed up my feelings with this Tweet: “Sickened by these barbaric acts, which sadly are a predictable outcome of divisive anti-cop rhetoric of ‪#ericholder & ‪#mayordeblasio.”

    Will de Blasio be able to continue as mayor? I think it’s an open question. Even as I write, the news has come in that an Orlando police officer has been shot and killed. It’s not clear at this point whether that incident was related to the wave of anti-police sentiment that has been fanned by hucksters like Eric Holder, Bill de Blasio, and Obama’s confidante Al Sharpton, who has been a visitor to the White House 61 times since 2009.

    Barack Obama was supposed to usher in a new era of racial harmony. How’s that working out? About as well as his prediction that future generations would look back on his nomination as the moment when “the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” Bill de Blasio is political fallout from the rise of Obama. It’s unclear at this point how de Blasio will fare. It depends partly on how angry the police are, partly on how the major media decide to cover news of his relations with protestors and the police. I suspect that both men are just about to learn that it is one thing to start a revolution, quite another to control it. Unfortunately, we will be the ones to bear the brunt of this difficult lesson.

    Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch is instructing NYPD officers to use “extreme discretion in every encounter” with the public because they have zero support from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D).

    He said de Blasio acts as if he’s leading a “f*cking revolution,” not a city.

    On December 4 MSNBC reported that de Blasio reacted to the Garner grand jury decision by saying, “The way we do policing needs to change.” At that point Lynch responded by saying the Mayor was “throwing [police officers] under the bus.”

    Capitol reports that Lynch decided to use the criticisms of police differently a few days later–he encouraged officers to do exactly what NYPD critics have demanded. He said: “If we won’t get supported when we do our jobs, if we’re going to get hurt for doing what’s right then we’re going to do it the way they want it. We will use extreme discretion in every encounter. Our friends, we’re courteous to them.”

    Lynch further clarified his statement: “Our friends, we’re courteous to them. Our enemies, extreme discretion. The rules are made by them to hurt you. We’ll now use those rules to protect us.”

  40. There is no doubt whatsoever that the racial hatred — and the anti-police hatred — whipped up by Obama and de Blasio was the direct cause of these deaths proving, yet again, that progressives are much more prone to using violence to act out their personal politics than any other group of peopele. And it seems like Obama’s reacting to these deaths with that smug satisfaction that has become all too commonplace.

    From his first days in office, Barack Obama has made it one of his objectives to use race relations as a wedge for political purposes. It started with the beer summit and it has metastasized in the worst possible way in the wake of the shooting in Ferguson and the choking in Staten Island.

    Personally, I think that out of control law enforcement is more of a danger to our civil liberties than the action of any guy who robs a convenience store or sells single cigarettes. I’ve said that numerous times and I’ll say it again. This robo-policing is not an Obama phenomenon. It is a War on Drugs phenomenon and it has been obvious to all but the most willfully blind since Ruby Ridge and Waco.

    What happened in NYC, however, has nothing to do with out of control cops. What happened in NYC was cold blooded, pre-meditated murder of two police officers who were minding their own business. What happened in NYC is a function of what happens when politicians… in this case the most prominent being Barack Obama and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio but their name is legion… join forces with hard core racists like Al Sharpton to whip up outrage for political purposes and use policemen and policewomen as the target of two minutes of hate. The two police officers gunned down were not involved in the apprehension of a criminal, they were gunned down as part of a scheme for revenge hatched in the mind of a violent man who was egged on by the actions of major figures in NYC and the nation.

    Obama golfing while this situation is happening is crappy atmospherics for any president. Obama, who is so wedded to the perquisites of office that the substance of the office is irrelevant, has long ago dropped any pretense about his priorities. What makes this worse is that he bears some responsibility for the street protests and reacted with studied indifference:

    Obama did not endorse or praise the official investigations into the two killings. Instead he sought to harness African-Americans’ anger. “The problem is not just a Ferguson problem, it is an American problem. And we’ve got to make sure that we are actually bringing about change,” he said at a Nov. 25 rally in Chicago.

    “I think Ferguson laid bare a problem that is not unique to St. Louis or that area, and is not unique to our time, and that is a simmering distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities of color,” Obama told reporters Dec. 1.

    “The sense that in a country where one of our basic principles, perhaps the most important principle, is equality under the law, that too many individuals, particularly young people of color, do not feel as if they are being treated fairly,” he said.

    There is no doubt whatsoever that the racial hatred — and the anti-police hatred — whipped up by Obama and de Blasio was the direct cause of these deaths proving, yet again, that progressives are much more prone to using violence to act out their personal politics than any other group of people. And it seems like Obama’s reacting to these deaths with that smug satisfaction that has become all too commonplace.

  42. Wicked Mobs, Cop Killers and The Attorney General

    By Christian Adams


    In this season of lights, it is appropriate to ask what separates our experiences from these horrors? Why is this age, in the West, blessed?

    For starters, our culture has elevated the commandment Thou Shall Not Kill to a place of reverence. The culture of the West has largely distinguished itself by elevating the dignity of the individual, by treating others as they wish to be treated.

    But ideas alone aren’t enough to turn back barbarians. Sir Winston Churchill understood that leaders must lead civilized people against barbarism. “Civilization will not last,” he said at the University of Bristol in 1938, “freedom will not survive, peace will not be kept, unless a very large majority of mankind unite together to defend them and show themselves possessed of a constabulary power before which barbaric and atavistic forces will stand in awe.”

    Without men in power and police on the streets who share these values, history trends toward barbarism.

    All of which brings us to Eric Holder and his swarm of lawyers at the Justice Department. Holder, rather than opposing the lawless, says things to make the mob’s fury seem more justified. Holder went to Ferguson and complained that the police even treated him in a racially unfair manner. His stories are always thin on detail and merit closer media scrutiny.

    Soon after the inauguration in 2009, I experienced Holder’s odd tendency to side with the lawless. Early on, I attached the term “lawless” to this administration when I published my first piece on the New Black Panther dismissal in the Washington Times. I noted the dismissal “is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions.”

    After visiting Ferguson, Holder sent swarms of federal officials into town and made it clear the federal government was on the side of the protesters. The “constabulary powers” which Churchill spoke of had crossed over.

    For those who haven’t paid attention to Holder’s anti-police policies, now is a good time to start paying attention. And it isn’t just Holder. He’s hired swarms of other lawyers and put them in important positions where their anti-police attitudes have become federal government policy.

  43. Link to the above article which names the hard core leftist radicals whom Holder has seeded the Justice Department with, as he sides with the lawless elements of society at EVERY turn. He is, in that sense, the ALTER EGO of the big media beloved messiah. For the sake of their meme of first black president, big media would defend SATAN himself. They are in that sense, the whole lot of them at NBC, CNN, ABC, and CBS THE DEVIL’S ADVOCATES.


  44. Oh? Really! And where were you when Palin was on the receiving end of left wing character assassination over the assault on Gabby Giffords by a mentally ill assailant? Did you speak out against the scapegoating then. Of course not. Truth to tell, you enjoyed it to the hilt when it happened to the other side. Your silence was deafening. And, only now when the shoe is on the other foot and your own side is being blamed for the murder of police officers by another mentally ill assailant do you conjure up the unfair Palin attack a defense against Obama Holder and De Blasio. Besides, if the left got away with it, then turn around is fair play. So don’t pretend to be an elder statesman when all you really are is a partisan practicing damage control. Go read Christian Adams’s article about how Obama’s alter ego Holder not only set the national tone for this violence, but seeded his justice department with radical leftist lawyers aid and abet lawless actions. Jeffrey, you may be a law professor, and you may be the legal expert of CNN, but you are a bitter partisan, liar, and a bit of a dumb shit. How can anyone in their right mind take you seriously. Just shut the fuck up and be thought a fool, rather than opening your mouth and removing all doubt.


    As Jonathan Tobin noted in Commentary:

    Conservatives know very well that attempts to politicize violence on the part of the mentally ill is deeply unfair. They know that liberal claims that either the Tea Party or conservatives such as Sarah Palin were somehow responsible for the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was sheer slander. If some angry supporters of the police now try to say Obama, Holder, or de Blasio approved or countenanced the actions of Ismaaiyl Brinsley, they are just as wrong. Obama, Holder, and de Blasio have all rightly condemned the murder of the two officers.

  45. How the Brooklyn Shootings Are like the Oklahoma City Bombing

    Jim Geharty @ NRO

    We’ve heard a lot lately about tensions between the police and the communities they serve. But usually no one is willing to point out that a major source of that tension is an irrational animus toward the police, fueled by activists and commentators who lie about what they do.

    Protesting police actions is not, ipso facto, a call for violence against the police. But that particular chant — “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” — is precisely that. We can argue whether that chant rises to the explicit level of threat to the point where it would not be protected under the Constitution. We can argue whether or not the shooter would have gone on his anti-police rampage if the protesters had not chanted that slogan, or if it the protesters had any particular impact on his actions.

    But I don’t think there’s going to be much dispute that chanting that you want to see cops dead is a terrible, terrible idea. If the protesters denouncing the New York City Police Department want to be regarded as something beyond violent anarchist scum, they’ll have to — no pun intended — police their own. When somebody starts chanting that they want dead cops, if you’re a protester with an ounce of sense, you have to stand up to that. This movement likes to claim that when it comes to police misbehavior, “silence equals consent.” That would apply to the violence of this anti-police movement, as well.

    If you oppose this recent anti-police protest movement, these incidents of violence against cops are probably the single most effective way to turn public sentiment against them. (The presence of Al Sharpton was probably the second-most effective way.)

    Police shootings will do for the anti-police movement what the Oklahoma City bombing did to the militia movement.

  46. The End of Bill de Blasio’s Political Career

    Jim Geharty @ NRO

    Jazz Shaw makes the argument that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, who hasn’t hesitated to stand with the protesters against the police, must resign in disgrace:

    It is time for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to resign. Yesterday’s assassination of two of New York City’s finest was only the latest and most devastating brush stroke on a canvas which has been coming into focus for months. When you are the mayor of a city you have many responsibilities, but one of the most vital (in terms of maintaining a functional societal structure) is the mandate to enforce the laws and maintain social order. It is the same for mayors everywhere, as well as governors and presidents. But currently, the state of relations between City Hall and the New York Police Department has devolved to the point of complete dysfunction, and criminals are well aware of this state of affairs. The fault for the creation of this toxic atmosphere is essentially found solely at the feet of Mayor de Blasio.

    Former commissioner Ray Kelly is saying that de Blasio’s relationship with the police department has gotten so bad, he needs an intermediary.

    One of Bill de Blasio’s role models is former Mayor David Dinkins. Liberals have attempted to airbrush the Dinkins years as the beginning of the city’s renaissance that most associate with Rudy Giuliani, a task of airbrushing so intense it requires a wind tunnel. Put another way, Dinkins was so bad, he convinced New Yorkers to vote for a Republican.

    Dinkins reigned over an era of high crime rates, serious racial tensions, a Crown Heights riot targeting Jews so intense that Giuliani and other politicians called it “a pogrom,” and a general sense of rising chaos in the city. But Dinkins never had this:

    Believing City Hall has betrayed them, cops demonstrated their anger Saturday by turning their backs on Mayor de Blasio as he entered a Brooklyn hospital to pay his respects to two murdered officers.

    A startling video shows a hallway at Woodhull Hospital filled with officers silently facing away from de Blasio as he walks a blue gantlet.

    The demonstration, captured by WPIX11 News, included the presidents of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association and the Sergeants Benevolent Association.

    “Mayor de Blasio, the blood of these two officers is clearly on your hands,” Ed Mullins, president of the sergeants association, said in a statement to his union members Saturday night.

    “It is your failed policies and actions that enabled this tragedy to occur,” he said. “I only hope and pray that more of these ambushes and executions do not happen again.”

    I don’t think de Blasio’s mayorality recovers from this. He may remain in office, but whatever mandate he once had is gone. A lot of the mayor’s critics charged he would bring back the bad old days. Now we have thugs targeting cops, convinced they’re acting in the name of righteous vengeance.

  47. (cont.)

    Meanwhile, Down in Washington Hawaii . . .

    How quickly one day’s presidential statement can be overtaken by the next day’s events:

    President Obama responded to black activists who deny that racial progress has been made in the United States by arguing that they are preempting the possibility of further progress.

    “There’s no reason for folks to be patient. I’m impatient. That’s why in the wake of what happened in Ferguson and what happened in New York, we’ve initiated task forces that in 90 days, are going to be providing very specific recommendations,” he told Candy Crowley during an interview that aired Friday on CNN’s State of the Union. “On the other hand, I think an unwillingness to acknowledge that progress has been made cuts off the possibility of further progress. If — if critics want to suggest that America is inherently and irreducibly racist, then why bother even working on it? I’ve seen change in my own life. So has this country. And those who would deny that, I think, actually foreclose the possibility of further progress rather than advancing it.”

    The president gave the interview on Friday. Late Saturday night, he called for “patient dialogue” in statement on the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn.

    The names “Alfred Sharpton” and “Al Sharpton” appear 81 times in White House visitor logs.

  48. Priceless comment about the new found skepticism of Obama by Hollywood billionaires over the Sony debacle:

    Still, the scales seem to have fallen from the eyes at least momentarily at Variety, which is what happens when Obama’s foreign-policy fecklessness gores one’s own ox instead of someone else’s.

    Obama has tossed more than a few people under the bus to cover for his own policy failures. It’s just this time, though, that he’s done the underbus toss with his major benefactors.


    Oh, pay no mind of him. He is just “An intelligent man in an intelligent house in an intelligent city” —-Washington Post Pulitzer prize winning “journalist” Eugene Robinson, African American Obama worshipper.

    Honestly, it is just noise.

    If you doubt it, think back to how far off the mark all the pollsters were about the mid term election.

    The pollsters are illegitimate.

    They reflect the interests of those who finance them.

  50. Wbboei, I agree to an extent, but since the mid term thrashing, Obama seems to have actually picked up some momentum while the republican in fighting seems to have left them a hallow victory.

  51. Personally, I hope the rake this cocksucker de Blasio over the coals. He has forfeited the right of a mayor to be at the funeral of a slain officer. It would be like Satan attending high mass. A police blockade to keep this cop killer de Blasio away and prevent him from pretending that he has no blood on his hands. He may not have pulled the trigger himself, but he might as well have because the man who did was responding to the inflamed racial hatred which he, and his partners in crime, i.e. Obama, Holder and Sharpton (I have visited the White House 61 times since Obama took office) constantly. So tell me now, skunk boy Holder what do you think about our honest discussion about race now. And you thought we didn’t have it in us . . . . The corporate overlords who control the political system must be enjoying this to the hilt.


    by KERRY PICKET Dec 2014 New York

    Retired NYPD members are discussing ways to keep New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio away from the funerals of recently-murdered NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

    One tactic, suggested in a popular law enforcement web forum, instructed officers to block the Mayor’s motorcade when it approached one of the funerals:

    All unions should reach out to their retired members. Use us to block this POS Mayor from attending these funerals. I don’t know if the fallen are from the City or not, but it shouldn’t matter.

    We can assemble en masse, and start a peaceful protest when his motorcade approaches. We’ll have cars too which might break down in various intersections. He won’t get within 5 blocks.

    How can they stop us? 10,000 summonses for obstructing vehicular traffic?

    Lets do this and let the whole country see what we think of him. Let them see the blood on his hands. Count me in. Just contact us and let us know where and when.

    I have direct deposit for my pension check if I happen to get collared. Plenty of sick days left too so I will be at both funerals. Lets do this instead of the active MOS so they don’t have to fear consequences from the Mayor, the Mayors husband, or their puppet Commissioner.

    Another poster suggested officers turn their backs on the mayor at the funeral: “I got a better idea…?? turn our backs on Deblasio at the funerals (just like at the hospital) BUT when hearse & family are present, we face forward like we always do; ie, upon arrival & after service… THAT is where all the cameras will be… BUT again, we should not expose the families to any of this…”

    Another commenter chimed in: “Even though I have been retired nine years, every time a MOS is hurt or killed it still flecking hurts. May they rest in peace and yes count me in. The PC is a puppet and I cannot even start to how much I hate this person who calls himself mayor. Since he will (hopefully) be banned from their funnels, he probably run to the perp’s.”

    Earlier this week, the New York City Patrolmen Benevolence Association’s Patrick Lynch urged officers to sign a petition demanding that de Blasio not attend their funerals if they are killed in the line of duty.

    Officers turned their backs on the mayor Saturday night when he walked into the hospital where both officers were taken after the shooting.

    There is “blood on many hands,” Lynch said at a press conference held on Saturday, placing blame on the mayor, political organizers, and anti-cop protesters.

    “We tried to warn it must not go on. It cannot be tolerated,” he said. “That blood on the hands starts on the step of City Hall in the office of the mayor. When these funerals are over, those responsible will be called on the carpet and held accountable.”

  52. Wbboei, I agree to an extent, but since the mid term thrashing, Obama seems too have the momentum while the republican in fighting has left them with what appears to be a hallow victory.

  53. http://nypost.com/2014/12/21/email-circulated-among-cops-2-cars-respond-to-every-call/

    The first assassination of an NYPD officer since the 1988 ambush of Edward Byrne has rattled the rank-and-file — and prompted cops to adopt drastic “wartime” policing tactics not seen since the 1970s.

    At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be,” an e-mail widely circulated among cops advised Saturday night.

    Doubling the number of cops responding to even minor 911 calls would effectively cut in half the NYPD’s patrol strength.

    The memo also pointed to potential slowdowns in arrest and ticketing activity: “IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest,” the statement said.

    “These are precautions that were taken in the 1970s when police officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis,” the statement added.

    “We have, for the first time in a number of years, become a ‘wartime’ Police Department,” the message concluded. “We will act accordingly. FORWARD MESSAGE IN ITS ENTIRETY TO ANY AND ALL [members of the service.]”

    Police brass did not immediately comment on the communication.

    “This is just the beginning,” one cop told The Post. “There are people out there who will want to be copycats. The tension out there is the worst I’ve ever seen it.”

    Vernon Geberth, a retired homicide lieutenant considered a legend in the NYPD, said the assassination Saturday of Officers Rafael Ramon Wenjian Liu “brought me back to the days of the 1970s when cops were routinely being assassinated.’’ He blamed the rhetoric of Mayor de Blasio for putting cops in danger.

    Cops told The Post they are under seige — in the streets and online. One pointed to a tweet that went out only hours after the tragedy: “Kill em all i’m on the way to NY now #shootthepolice 2 more going down tomorrow.

  54. I hope the cops play this thing right, and do not over play their hand.

    They are entitled to show de Blasio the same level of respect that the shows them, which is none.

    But they must not exceed the level of indignation felt in the public.

    As long as the public is on their side, they can destroy de Blasio deftly, with a scapulae instead of a meat axe.

    But if they go to far, then it will backfire.

    The goal should be to destroy him, without making him a martyr.

  55. The retired New York cops should produce a rap video on Hiss Honor de Blasio called “Gangsta May’r” co-starring Al Sharpton.

  56. Holder’s words from Hold’em’s post:

    “This means forging closer bonds between officers and the communities they serve, so that public safety is not a cause that is served by a courageous few, but a promise that’s fulfilled by police officials and citizens working side by side.”


    ” so that public safer is not a cause that is served by a courageous few” ??!!

    This POS Holder is trying to bamboozle us with these words of BS. Only a few cops are devoted to public safety? So is it ok to randomly kill cops because in Eric’s words, only a few of them actually are courageous and work to defend public safety?

    He, like his boss, is incapable of doing the decent thing and calling for an end to attacks on cops, and calling for the arrest of the racist, punk, low-lifes whose chants are encouraging people to kill police officers. And, I just wonder WTF to these demonstrators get so damn much free time? How the hell do they have time to protest for weeks on end?

    I hope Rev. Al calls on the cops to protect his sorry ass from the threats on his life, and that they turn their backs on him, just as they did Bull Shit Bill. I hope the cops protest outside his window chanting ” dead cops can’t protect race baiting has-beens”.

    You’re exactly right, Shadow. Except for the few wimp cop-hating progs who are so lame, they would have to call the police to protect them from a toothless poodle if attacked by one, the rest of America knows what Barack’s about. His fifteen minutes were up a few months into his so-called administration. He just didn’t know it because the media kept propping him up. Now the country knows that MSM is even more unreliable than Barack. Who’s gonna prop them up while they’re trying to prop up their skeleton of a president?

    Wbboei, I agree to an extent, but since the mid term thrashing, Obama seems too have the momentum while the republican in fighting has left them with what appears to be a hallow victory.
    Jbtonesfan: apart from the proven failure of these pollsters to predict public sentiments, as witnessed most recently in their failure to predict a wave election, and their insistence that it would be a tight one, there are three reasons to reject this 7% spike in Obama’s approval rating which they report, all of which have occurred post election:

    1. Amnesty for 5 million illegals: this is the most important thing he has done since the election. It was opposed by 2/3 of the public. Therefore, it is hard to believe it has contributed to this alleged upsurge in his popularity. More likely, it would cause it to tank further, especially after he ignored the mid term voters and went full speed ahead with it.

    2. Race Relations: this is the second most important development, and Obama has conspicuous by his absence. It began with the killing of two black thugs in the commission of crimes, it was heightened by the racist rhetoric of Obama, Holder and Sharpton, it led to mob violence and ultimately to the assassination of two police officers, while no drama Obama golfed in Hawaii. Many saw Obama as a racial instigator and those who did not could hardly see him as a protector. At best he was MIA. I doubt this was a contributing factor, but if it was, the assassination of the police officers will have the reverse effect.

    3. Republican Infighting: if we were measuring Republican approval rating, then I expect that number has in fact gone down since the election, for reasons previously discussed. But since this support was based on an opposition to Obama, it is highly unlikely that the Republican to do what they promised will cause those anti Obama voters to migrate suddenly to Obama.

    In sum, there is no credible explanation for a 7% surge in Obama’s approval rating. If the polls were honest they would have remained where they were, i.e. 40% or slipped even further.

    (Note: there are other post election issues, such as the Cuban initiative and the Sony matter, but any impact they might have on his standing would be negligible.)

  59. http://www.politico.com/story/2014/12/bill-de-blasio-113755.html

    Just over a year after sailing into office with 72 percent of the vote on a message of transformational change, de Blasio found his mayoralty subsumed by a torrent of anger, unleashed by the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn Saturday by a troubled gunman who said he was killing “pigs” to avenge the deaths of two men by cops in Staten Island and Ferguson, Missouri. By Monday, de Blasio was lashing out at the press corps that covers him, trying to paper over public divisions with his own police commissioner and coping with what friends described as the emotional blow of facing public rejection by many in the nation’s biggest police force. “He’s pretty badly shaken” by the murders, one told us.

    That a civic tragedy would so quickly devolve into a full-blown political crisis for the new mayor was testament to the vehemence of anti-de Blasio elements in the police union – and the mayor’s mistaken belief that his 2013 victory gave him the right to shred an old Gotham political playbook that dictated a mayor show deference to the NYPD.

    You can’t be big-city mayor and alienate the cops – and that’s just as true now as it was under three-term New York City Mayor Ed Koch, or even a century ago.

    Koch was loved by the cops and always told all his successors that you must have the support of the cops, that the cops can be your best friend. If Koch were alive today that’s what he would tell Bill de Blasio,” said George Arzt, former press secretary to Koch, whose election in 1977 election greatly improved City Hall-police relations.

    De Blasio “needs to press reset in his relationship with the cops,” Arzt said.

    Good luck with that. The bad blood between the NYPD and de Blasio is nothing new – it dates back to an election campaign centered on de Blasio’s withering criticism of the Bloomberg administration’s stop-and-frisk policy, and his close alliance with the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has organized scores of protests targeting cops over their behavior toward urban blacks.

    According to a former de Blasio aide, during the general election campaign in 2013, de Blasio’s team was even convinced that members of his police detail were eavesdropping on his private conversations in his city-assigned car. Things got so bad that de Blasio, according to the staffer, would step into the street to make sure he was out of earshot of plainclothes officers.

    The low-boil contempt for de Blasio, which has been building for months, erupted publicly on Saturday when dozens of cops turned their backs on the mayor as he arrived at the Brooklyn hospital where the bodies of officers Wenjian Liu, 32, and Rafael Ramos, 40, had been taken.

    In a sign of the growing strain, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told the “Today” show on Monday morning that the murder of the officers was the “direct spinoff” of protests against police violence – and added that police-community tensions were the highest since the 1970s. That infuriated de Blasio allies. An emotional de Blasio appeared later in the day at a Police Athletic League event, seeming jarred by the turn of events. His message, however, was now the same as Bratton’s: Protests could wait until after the funerals for the two men had passed.

    City Hall officials seemed genuinely surprised by the ferocity of the backlash. They said de Blasio wasn’t concerned with the optics, and that he’s trying to calm the waters, even if it means allowing police union leaders to lambaste him in public.

    “In these situations, the loudest voices are on the most extreme ends of both sides,” De Blasio senior adviser Peter Ragone said. “And what we’re trying to do right now…responsible actors are trying to avoid having the loudest voices [overtake the others].”

    De Blasio allies often point out that he is governing at a time of transition in the city, the first new mayor elected since the population shifted to a majority of Hispanics, blacks and Asians. The police department has seen demographic changes as well, although its top union leaders — a set of hard-edged members who have long been quote machines for the city’s voracious media — have basically remained the same. The unions, whose leaders have long criticized city mayors, are currently in a contract dispute with City Hall.

    David Axelrod, Obama’s longtime adviser whose former business partner, John Del Cecato, is a de Blasio adviser, said that de Blasio’s dilemma isn’t unique – it’s a burden borne by any progressive who wants to speak truth to power while wielding it. “My sense is that he sincerely appreciates both the hard job the police do and the gulf that exists today, and is trying to close that breach,” Axelrod said. “And he has to weather the storm and speak hard truths to police and the community and over time, the public will appreciate his role as a rational voice, trying to heal the city and move forward.” [snip]

    People close to de Blasio also said he supported the Garner protesters not because he backed their position, but because he wanted to avoid antagonizing them in the wake of the grand jury decision not to indict the officer who killed Garner. Above all, one source said, de Blasio wanted to avoid provoking riots akin to the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, after a white cop shot an unarmed black man whom he later said had attacked him.

    But de Blasio’s unpopularity with the historically white-dominated NYPD parallels his increasing struggles with white New Yorkers, who now disapprove of him by a nearly two-to-one margin in public polling. When confronted with similar polling numbers over the last year, de Blasio allies have repeatedly said that the mayor retains the strong backing of non-white New Yorkers and the Democratic base – and claimed the mayor’s private polling showed a much more modest racial disparity.

    The blue rage isn’t rooted in any one statement de Blasio has made against cops – in fact, he has been universally supportive of the rank-and-file in his public utterances. But in his past roles as a public official, he’s often sided with the victims of police brutality, and recently told an interviewer that he has told Dante, his teenaged mixed-race son, not to reach for a cellphone around officers because it might put him in danger as a “a young man of color.” He took the unusual step — unimaginable under the mayoralties of Rudy Giuliani or Michael Bloomberg — of inviting Sharpton to City Hall, seating him opposite Bratton at a table where the activist proceeded to strongly denounce the police. (“If Dante wasn’t your son, he’d be a candidate for a chokehold. And we got to deal with that reality,” Sharpton said to de Blasio as Bratton looked on.) Last week, de Blasio privately met with organizers of the Garner protests, another moment that antagonized police.

    But the action that turned off cops most of all was his defense of City Hall staffer Rachel Noerdlinger, a longtime Sharpton aide whose son and boyfriend posted anti-police messages on their Facebook accounts. The boyfriend allegedly tried to drive a cop off the road in Edgewater, New Jersey, and later pleaded to a lesser offense, according to the New York Post. The mayor stood behind Noerdlinger for weeks until her son was arrested for trespassing – and even then he didn’t fire her. When she left her job, City Hall officials said she was on leave.

    His words and his deeds don’t match,” said veteran cop reporter Leonard Levitt, who runs NYPD Confidential, a website fed by tips from inside the department and widely read by the rank-and-file. “You had Noerdlinger’s son calling cops ‘pigs’ and de Blasio doesn’t think that’s inappropriate? What message are you sending? De Blasio says it’s just the union guys who are angry. It’s not. It’s everybody. I’ve been covering this for 25 years and I have never seen anything like it… The mayor doesn’t have a clue.

    Axelrod, who recently visited with de Blasio in City Hall, said the mayor isn’t clueless – just trying to walk a fine line. [snip]

    The same coalition that elected Obama also swept de Blasio to an outright win in the 2013 primary, helping him avoid a runoff.

    Yet like Obama, de Blasio sometimes seems hampered by his inability – or unwillingness – to master the stagecraft of his own mayoralty, which requires Kochian force rather than Obamaian reason. Bloomberg – as stiff a politician ever elected to run the city – took office when the pit at Ground Zero still spewed smoke, and realized quickly that the ceremonial parts of being mayor mattered, as much as he hated them. De Blasio, by contrast, has struggled with those aspects of the job – routinely showing up late for events, including a recent commemoration for the victims of a plane crash in Far Rockaway, where he missed his window to speak.

    De Blasio was clearly pained and jarred by the police executions Saturday, but he left the indignation to Bratton. The angriest moment de Blasio has mustered since the weekend was on Monday, and it was directed at the press.

    “What are you guys going to do?” he asked, his voice rising, as he accused reporters of amplifying the few bad actors among the protestors. “Are you going to keep dividing us?”

  60. NYC protesters say they won’t stop demonstrations despite de Blasio’s wishes

    … “We are in a very difficult moment. Our focus has to be on these families,” de Blasio said Monday at police headquarters. “I think it’s a time for everyone to put aside political debates, put aside protests, put aside all of the things that we will talk about in all due time.”
    However, the Rev. Al Sharpton told Reuters late Monday that de Blasio’s request was too “ill-defined” to heed.
    “Is a vigil a protest? Is a rally?” Sharpton asked.
    Another group, The Answer Coalition, said it would go ahead with a long-planned march Tuesday evening, and denounced the mayor for what it called an “outrageous” attempt to chill free speech. The New York Post reported that a few dozen protesters staged a “die-in” at Grand Central Terminal before marching toward Times Square.
    “We will not let recent tragic moments derail this movement,” one protester shouted. “This is the revolution and we will not be repressed….”

    CNN Reporter: Protesters Crashed Memorial for Slain NYPD Cops, ‘Started Yelling at Groups of Police’

    Protesters on Monday stormed the site where two NYPD officers were slain Saturday and confronted cops pouring in to mourn their fallen brothers at a makeshift memorial, according to a CNN reporter.

    Sara Ganim, who was reporting for the cable news channel at the scene, noted that things had been mostly calm and respectful. However, as she reported from the scene, commotion could be heard in the background.

    “I do, just in full disclosure, want to say that in the last couple of minutes, for the first time today, we’ve seen protesters come out here and start yelling at groups of police who are mourning their slain police officers,” she said, according to a rush transcript from CNN.

    “Yes, Sara, I want to ask about that,” guest host Suzanne Malveaux said. “We are hearing people in the background there. What are they shouting and what is their main point there, the fact that they are gathering here where there’s a memorial for these two police officers? Obviously emotions are very high there on the street. What do those protesters want, what do they say?”

    “It’s just a few of them, Suzanne,” Ganim responded. “Like I said, just in the last five minutes, and they’re quite frankly yelling at a group of police officers who are standing here silently, just looking at the memorial of candles and flowers and posters.”

    “And they’re yelling similar rhetoric that we’ve been hearing over the last couple of weeks related to the shooting of — the chokehold death of Eric Garner and the shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri. So it’s very, you know, sentiments that we’ve been hearing,” she added.


  64. Maybe the shock of the horror of the NYC Police assignation by a black man who just tried to murder a black woman will bring some sanity to protesters about who these people are that they are supposedly protesting for. Protesting for criminal rights because most of them are black, is just lunacy. Protestors have been Alinskied. There are children beaten, raped and murdered everyday in this country due to lack of protective services and law enforcement. Why not protest that? Tell those officers and social workers to get their asses out there!

    DeBlasio should be tarred and feathered.

    by TONY LEE23 Dec 2014920
    Some prominent moderate establishment Republicans in Utah are plotting to target conservative icon Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) with a primary challenge in 2016.

    Lee’s offense? He didn’t drink the Washington Kool-aid and see the D.C. cesspool as a jacuzzi after he ousted incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett (R-UT), who had supported the TARP bailouts, in 2010.

    When Lee prevailed over Bennett, he gave other conservatives across the country hope that they could also defeat entrenched incumbents who cared more about preserving the status quo above all else. Once Lee arrived in Washington, he didn’t turn his back on the base, which angered some prominent establishment Republicans.

    According to a report in Politico, moderate GOP billionaires like Jon Huntsman Sr. and “some powerful establishment Republicans in Utah are tired” of Lee’s conservatism and willingness to live up to his campaign promises instead of letting the D.C. establishment co-opt him.

    During his first Senate term, Lee has established himself as one of conservatism’s leading voices. As Politico implies, establishment Republicans do not like him because he stood with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to defund Obamacare and has supported defunding Obama’s executive amnesty with Sens. Cruz and Jeff Sessions (R-AL). Most recently, Lee has offered positive solutions via his conservative reform agenda that specifically focuses on improving the lives of working Americans with conservative policies.

    Huntsman, the father of President Barack Obama’s former Ambassador to China and failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, reportedly has refused to meet with Lee because of his “extremely radical” positions against Obamacare and executive amnesty. Huntsman said the government shutdown cost his cancer research foundation millions in federal taxpayer dollars, and he predicted “a major primary challenge” against Lee, telling Politico that Lee is an “embarrassment” and “an extremist.”

    Prominent Utah bank executive Scott Anderson has reportedly met with a variety of potential challengers, including Josh Romney, Mitt Romney’s son.

    A top Mitt Romney ally who has profited from Obamacare pushed a state law that may make it easier for a moderate Republican to prevail in a primary.

    Mike Leavitt, the former Utah governor and Health and Human Services Secretary who was chosen to lead Romney’s transition team, pushed the “Count My Vote” law, which, as Politico notes, “could give way to a more moderate candidate to get onto the primary ballot.” The law, which is being challenged in federal court, allows a potential candidate to get on the ballot by either “winning the support by delegates at a party convention or securing 28,000 signatures.” Normally, Utah nominates its candidates through a convention–if no candidate receives 60% of the delegates, then the top two move on to a primary election.

    As even Politico noted, though, it will be difficult for anyone to successfully primary Lee because he has a “deeply enthusiastic base of thousands of conservative activists who dominate the party’s nominating convention” and the backing of important conservative groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund and the Club for Growth. Conservative talk radio host and scholar Mark Levin repeatedly praises him. Even the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has said, “we are 100 percent committed to getting Sen. Lee reelected.”

    Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), the NRSC chair, told Politico that Lee’s chances “are very, very good.”

    Conservatives have seen Sarah Palin, Cruz, and Lee stand together against the permanent political class on the most important issues facing the country in recent years. They have campaigned for conservatives across the country, opposed Obamacare and massive amnesty legislation favored by the bipartisan permanent political class, and stood with veterans against Obama when the Obama administration barricaded the World War II Memorial during the government shutdown.

    If someone like Josh Romney tries to primary Lee, he may forever been seen as an enemy to the conservative base, which is a consequence anyone thinking about challenging Lee must weigh before potentially deciding to do so.

  66. DeBlasio should be tarred and feathered.
    And run out of town on a rail.

    Like Schumer, he’s got an ass that is six ax handles wide.

    He is finding that it is easier to light the fuse than control the explosion.

    The operative question now:

    How do you get the toothpaste back in the tube.

    HAARP should send some cold winter weather their way.

    I think de Blasio is through.

    You cannot govern that town when the first responders are against you.

    Now, he has to walk on pins and needles which will alienate the rioters,

    But will not rehabilitate him with the cops.

    That train has left the station.

  67. Now, he has to walk on pins and needles which will alienate the rioters,
    De Blasio has to watch himself.

    Everything he says from now on will be viewed through the lens of a mayor who hates the police, just as everything Obama says must be viewed through the lens of someone who hates America. Both are Alinksy protogees.

  68. the nyc police should strike. this would automatically cancel times square new years eve celebration. way too volatile.

  69. the nyc police should strike.
    I hope they consider that possibility. Blahs is in a personality change. Despite public admonitions not to, he has visited Ramos family – imagine they OK’d it. Garner’s wife has pleaded in public for calm. Lights on Christnas tree at Rockefeller Ctr & Empire State Bldg were dimmed for 5 minutes – don’t know who saw to those moments of respect. Blahs did preside over silence at City Hall 2:47 PM yesterday (?) when officers were killed. He has been video’d at public memorial site. Protesters also disgraced themselves, by their message, with a visit to same memorial. Evidently VPOTUS and Dr Jill will attend funeral of Ramos. Funeral for Liu is held up due to uncertainties of when relatives in China can be cleared to come here.

    Seems like all with political interests in this are doing what they can to forge or change their images. Sharpton is off the radar, replaced by references only to protesters. Believe Obama admin is washing itself as we speak. However conservative blog just claiming Obama is not going to attend. These victims’families are going to wish their mourning ceremonies had been planned for private.

    The Race Card’s Steep Cost
    As the NYPD deaths show, demagogues’ constantly taking cheap shots at the police can end in tragedy.
    By Thomas Sowell

    …Make no mistake about it. There is political mileage to be made siding with demagogues like Al Sharpton who, as demagogue-in-chief, has been invited to the White House dozens of times by its commander-in-chief.
    Many in the media and among the intelligentsia cherish the romantic tale of an “us” against “them” struggle of beleaguered ghetto blacks defending themselves against the aggression of white policemen. The gullible include both whites who don’t know what they are talking about and blacks who don’t know what they are talking about either, because they never grew up in a ghetto. Among the latter are the President of the United States and his attorney general.
    Such people readily buy the story that ghetto social problems today — from children being raised without a father to runaway rates of murder — are “a legacy of slavery,” even though such social problems were nowhere near as severe in the first half of the 20th century as they became in the second half.
    You would be hard pressed to name just five examples from the first half of the 20th century of the kinds of ghetto riots that have raged in more than a hundred cities during the second half. Such riots are a legacy of the social degeneracy of our times.
    Calling this social degeneracy “a legacy of slavery” is not just an excuse for those who engage in it, it is an excuse for the ideology of the intelligentsia behind the social policies that promoted this degeneracy.
    Let those who have laid a guilt trip on people in our times, for evils done by other people in past centuries, at least face their own responsibility for the evil consequences of their own notions and policies. If they won’t do it, then the rest of us need to stop listening gullibly to what they are saying.
    The race card is nothing to play with. It can ruin us all.
