Update II: Martin O’Malley hurts nonexistent presidential chances with Baltimore visit. O’Malley’s Benghazi? Hillary has questions to answer about what happened on 9/11/12. O’Malley has to answer for Baltimore:
Back in Baltimore, Martin O’Malley is heckled, and could face political fallout
BALTIMORE —Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley was heckled on a packed street corner in West Baltimore on Tuesday, after he cut short a trip to Europe to return to the city he led as mayor for seven years.
O’Malley (D), who is preparing to launch a White House bid, waded into a crowd near the burned-out shell of a CVS pharmacy that was destroyed and looted Monday night. He was confronted by two men on motorcycles who shouted expletives and blamed the recent violence in the city on O’Malley’s tough-on-crime policies from 1999 to 2007. [snip]
In his travels to early nominating states, O’Malley has described Baltimore to Democratic audiences as a down-on-its-luck city that came to believe in its potential again while he was mayor. He has trumpeted progress made during his tenure, including a steep drop in violent crime, which is attributed in part to a zero-tolerance approach that led to a sharp increase in arrests. [snip]
“It sure isn’t going to help him,” said Gene Raynor, a longtime O’Malley critic who was a close friend of the late Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor William Donald Schaefer (D). “I think it does reflect on him.”
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, former Republican National Committee chairman Michael S. Steele accused O’Malley of contributing to a poisoned atmosphere in Baltimore. Steele, a former Maryland lieutenant governor, said tensions had simmered for a long time and got worse during O’Malley’s tenure as mayor. [snip]
On the street corner Tuesday afternoon, O’Malley displayed a wide smile as he shook hands and posed for selfies with some residents. A team of aides accompanied him through the crowd, as reporters and residents questioned him about his administration’s policing policies.
“F— that, this is his fault!” screamed a man who followed along on a red motorcycle as O’Malley and the crowd that surrounded him moved down the street. “Do you know who he is? Why would you shake his hand?”
Shake hands with the Devil. Is O’Malley a data-driven KKK racist? By Barack Obama campaign standards (we mean by that Al Sharpton race-baiting smears “standard”) there can be no doubt that O’Malley is a racist!
Don’t blame us for calling O’Malley a RACIST! – we’re following the new post 2008 Obama/DailyKooks standard for calling someone a racist.
Update: We get results. Martin O’Malley cancels his paid speeches and returns to the scene of the crime – his Baltimore. Decades of Martin O’Malley “leadership” lead to Obama-like failure. Martin O’Malley is not fit to be mayor of any city let alone president:
Washington (CNN)Democratic presidential contender Martin O’Malley is canceling a series of paid speeches in Ireland and returning to his riot-scarred home city of Baltimore on Tuesday morning, his spokeswoman said late Monday. [snip]
O’Malley has made his time as Baltimore’s mayor a key part of his pitch for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. He touted it in a recent speech to the Polk County Democrats in Iowa.
He said when he ran for mayor in 1999, Baltimore was the “most violent, most addicted, most abandoned city in America,” and that he “set out to make our city work again, to make the dream true again.”
“Together, in other words, we put into action that powerful belief that, that in our community, there is no such thing as a spare American. That we are all in this together,” O’Malley said. “Over the next 10 years, Baltimore went on to achieve the biggest reduction in part one crime of any major city in America.
Martin O’Malley’s legacy:
Martin O’Malley wants to be president. Look to Baltimore, Maryland to see the future. Live video: Protesters throwing rocks, bricks at cops in Baltimore during Freddie Gray demonstrations.
Baltimore, Maryland has a black police chief, black deputy police chief, over 40% black police force, and a black woman mayor. The F.B.I., headed by a black woman is “monitoring” what is going on. The black president presumably is still hung over from his rage filled race-baiting at this past weekend’s whorehouse called the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.
We’re told today that the Baltimore Riots are “years in the making”. The governor for those years? Martin O’Malley.
Martin O’Malley will offer himself to the nation on the basis of his brilliant “data driven government”:
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) believes he has discovered a “new way of governing” that could revolutionize Washington.
Throughout his political career, O’Malley has been obsessed with data. Now, he appears to be mulling whether to mount a potential primary challenger to 2016 front-runner Hillary Clinton. If he does run, it seems his devotion to performance metrics could become a major part of his platform.
“It is not like the old way that was very often hierarchical, and bureaucratic, ideological — orders from on high that eventually make it to the bottom of the pyramid,” O’Malley recently told Business Insider in his Annapolis office, which is adorned with historic paintings and war memorabilia. “It’s relentlessly interactive. It is performance-measured.”
Martin O’Malley is a data pimp with a performance in office that deserves to be measured. O’Malley loves his data:
“We took measurable actions to reduce storm-water runoff and to expand the number of acres planted with winter cover crops, to upgrade clean technology at all of our sewer treatment plants,” he says. “We reduced nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment levels by 14, 15 and 18 percent, respectively.”
Before O’Malley was governor, he was mayor of Baltimore — and, he says, he implemented “the 48-hour pothole guarantee. And our crews actually hit that guarantee, and they hit it 97 percent of the time, and each of the members of those crews got a thank-you note from the mayor when we did it.”
Martin O’Malley loves to attack Hillary Clinton. O’Malley has been so busy on that front he has not had time to visit his data driven home of Baltimore. O’Malley loves to criticize Hillary for what he himself does:
Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, who’s been busy traveling to early presidential nominating states, is diverting overseas for a few days to make some money for his family.
The Democrat is scheduled to deliver a series of paid speeches in London and Dublin the first part of the week on topics including data-driven governance and renewable energy, according to aides.
Since leaving the governor’s office in January, O’Malley’s income has come primarily from such speeches, as well as a teaching arrangement at the business school at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he lives.
O’Malley is too busy to comment, let alone take responsibility, for the mess in Baltimore, where he currently lives and made his bones as mayor.
To his credit, Martin O’Malley did teach his data driven techniques very well while at Baltimore. The criminal gangs of Baltimore use Martin O’Malley’s data driven theories to run riot and pillage:
Gangs vow to target police as Baltimore protests spread
Violent rioting rages across Baltimore
Violence and looting overtook much of West Baltimore on Monday, seriously injuring several police officers and leaving a store and several vehicles in flames. [snip]
Smoke filled the air as police responded with shields and a tactical vehicle. Demonstrators pelted officers with rocks, bricks and bottles and assaulted a photojournalist, and officers fired back with tear gas and pepper balls.
Demonstrators set a police vehicle ablaze at North and Pennsylvania avenues. Nearby, they looted a CVS drug store, which store officials said had already closed, before it caught fire. Rioters cut the fire hose as firefighters battled the blaze.
The unrest spread toward downtown, with looting along Howard and Centre streets as afternoon turned to evening. Another group of people was destroying property around North and Fulton avenues, police said. [snip]
The incident stemmed from a flier that circulated widely among city school students via social media about a “purge” to take place at 3 p.m., starting at Mondawmin Mall and ending downtown. Such memes have been known to circulate regularly among city school students, based on the film “The Purge,” about what would happen if all laws were suspended.
Lawless and data driven by social media.
The criminal gangs of Baltimore use social media and data to block certain streets and target police:
Residents and commuters are being urged to avoid parts of Baltimore as a large riot continues to grow violent Monday afternoon.
Baltimore Police say seven officers, including one who is unresponsive, have been injured.
Police have sprayed mace and used tear gas to stop the riots, but a large group of teenagers continued to throw bricks, rocks and other items at officers.
The group is currently looting businesses, including a CVS in the area of North Ave. and Pennsylvania Ave.
Police are urging all parents of Baltimore to locate their children and bring them home, as the riots consist of a large number of juveniles. [snip]
A police car was set on fire at North Ave. and Pennsylvania Ave. and drivers are advised to avoid the area. [snip]
The Baltimore Police Department said earlier in the day they received a credible threat that numerous gangs have entered into a partnership to “take-out” law enforcement officers.
According to the department, they have received credible information that various gangs including the Black Guerilla Family, Bloods and Crips have entered into the partnership.
Martin O’Malley should be proud. His thugs and gangs have learned their data driven lessons well.
Martin O’Malley should be proud. His black woman mayor of Baltimore has learned her O’Malley data driven lessons well:
The odd tactic of giving Baltimore protesters ‘space’ to destroy property
Sometimes a protest is just a riot camouflaged in self-righteousness. It might not start that way, and the actors might not think that it is. But nonetheless, sometimes it is.
A few miles from my apartment, the Miami neighborhood Liberty City has yet to shake the aftereffects of the 1980 riots that sprang from the acquittal of four officers in the killing of a black man. In California, neighborhoods and property values remain scarred from the Watts Riots in 1965 and the Rodney King Riots in 1992. More recently in Ferguson, Mo., the long-term consequences of a few nights of looting and burning are starting to be felt by residents and property owners.
So it makes sense, in a way, that facing a weekend of protests against the mysterious police-related death of resident Freddie Gray, that Baltimore authorities would be on edge.
What no one expected is what Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake admitted in a press conference on Sunday: that she asked the Baltimore Police Department to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that.”
It’s Obama style “community organizing” supplemented with Martin O’Malley data driven “burn it down”.
Some will try to shift blame for the Baltimore riots to the recently elected Republican governor of Maryland (a Repubican governor in deep deep blue Maryland?/??? Yeah, that’s how great a governor Martin O’Malley was), not the black mayor nor the black police chief nor current Baltimore resident and former Baltimore mayor and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley. But if the Obama lovin'”social justice” warriors of Baltimore are right that the Baltimore riots were years in the making, we have to look at who was in office for all those years. Yup, it was data driven away from his city as it burns, Martin O’Malley.
