BLACK AND BLUE AMERICA

Below is a column by Gary Mienert, re-posted with permission.  Gary has been documenting the conditions along the United States southern border with Mexico for a very long time.  In this column, Gary talks about the situation facing America’s law enforcement officers since the situation in Ferguson, MO with thug Michael Brown.

Black and Blue America by Gary Mienert

On August 9, 2014 Michael Brown, a black 289 pound 18 year old, was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer after Brown robbed a convenience store. Every American who reads newspapers or watches television knows the Michael Brown drama. During the same year 126 police officers in the United States were killed.  Can you name one?

From the outset the evidence was convincing that the officer had every reason to use deadly force to stop this well known thug.  Witnesses, both black and white, confirmed that Brown refused to obey every order given to him by the officer up to the end when he attempted to grab the officer’s weapon.  Brown is still venerated as a martyr primarily by the black community.  How could this happen?

Although numerous state and local agencies were well underway into their investigations, Obama leaped into the fray with the following statement to the press.

The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time.  As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is investigating the situation along with local officials, and they will continue to direct resources to the case as needed.  I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding.”

With his statement and that of Attorney General Holder the media flooded in and the explosion of news coverage began.  Literally, before the body had cooled Al Sharpton and his entourage slithered into town appearing to sympathize with the family but injected hatred for his own agenda. It was more than a dollop of irony and coincidence that Sharpton visited the president’s office just prior to his trip to Ferguson. His close relationship with Obama is evidenced by almost 70 such “hug fests” over eight years.

All the pieces were in place: A known thug killed at the hands of a police officer, Obama’s nationwide sympathetic messages, A corrupt Attorney General Holder inserting himself into the game, and Al Shapton stirring the community and interlopers into rioting.

The “Hands up don’t shoot” narrative and “Black lives matters” chant gave birth entirely by “The Ferguson Effect.”

That event in itself was the genesis, the lighting of the fuse for “Black lives Matter” riots which have continued unabated for over two years.  This was no accident, it was well orchestrated and it continues without pause until today.  Any death of a black person by the lands of law enforcement automatically becomes a cause for a march often leading to riots and deaths of officers.

If any doubts linger regarding Obama’s culpability we need only to look back to February of 2016 when he convened a room full of leftist agitators including “Black Lives Matter” leaders and praised their skills as “much better organizers” than he was. He continued by saying he “was confident they are going to take America to new heights” because of their “degree of focus and seriousness and constructiveness.”  Let that sink in while you recall the burned out buildings, the looted stores, the overturned vehicles, the injured innocents and especially the police officers killed or wounded. All were the end result of the very people in the room to whom Obama was praising. Families of fallen officers will forever remember the chants of “Pigs in a blanket, Fry ‘em like bacon” and “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want ‘em? Now”

July 9, 2016 Obama declared “Right now the big concern is the fact that data shows black folks are more vulnerable to these kinds of incidents” referring to officer shootings of black men. Ironically Obama’s words were spoken only three hours before Micah Xavier Johnson shot and killed five police officers in Dallas, wounding nine others and two citizens.  Johnson was reported as saying he was angry over police shooting black men.”

Obama falsely claims “African Americans are arrested at twice the rate of whites.”  He, of course, conveniently omits the fact that blacks commit murder at almost six times the rate of whites!  The recent assault rate on American citizens is 229 per every 100,000.  During that time the assault rate on police officers was 9,300 per every 100,000. That’s a rate of 41 times higher than on citizens. It’s obvious with that data police officers aren’t anxious to fire their weapons even when assaulted!  The killings by police officers are less than 1% of the assaults on them.

The statistics when police officers kill their assailants is even more startling. The Bureau of Justice Statistics show the rate of black officers who kill their assailants is 32 per every 100,000.  The same statistics show the rate of white officers who kill their assailants is 14 per every 100,000, less than half of that of black officers.  The statistics come from a Harvard study, The Manhattan Institute and Bureau of Justice Statistics.

It’s of utmost importance how the “Ferguson effect” of “Black lives Matter” affects the police officers.  The Pew Research Center just released a poll taken on this very subject.  A survey of over 8,000 police officers from across the country was taken.  76% of officers are more hesitant to use force even when it is appropriate.  72% are less likely to stop a suspicious suspect.  Over 90% say their colleagues are worrying more about their personal safety than doing their job. .

Chicago, Obama’s home town carrying the title of “The killing field” just received the report from Obama’s Justice Department. “The Chicago Police Department engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force.”  Statistics, however, show that very little of the problem rests with a pattern of force by the police.  Black on black killings by any test is the culprit but Obama certainly wouldn’t agree with that.  The 2016 Christmas weekend in Chicago equaled 41 shot and 11 killed. A similar slaughter occurred on Martin Luther King Day equaled 39 shot leaving 10 dead.

Thanks to the residue of Obama’s racist policies toward our nations’ police officers and support of “Black Lives Matter” we can expect many to retire or relocate in safer environs. How can we possibly blame them?

Rock River Patriots Meeting Friday January 9th – CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

I regret to inform all of you planning to attend the Rock River Patriots Meeting tomorrow night, January 9th, 2015, that the meeting has been cancelled due to the weather.  We received notice that many people were not going to be able to attend because of the bad weather.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.   We hope to see you all in February at our next meeting!

 

Rock River Patriots Meeting This Friday November 9th

The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting in Fort Atkinson this Friday November 9th at 6:00 pm in the Dwight Foster Library.  The Dwight Foster Library is located at 209 Merchants Ave.  We will discuss the election results and discuss future plans / initiatives.  This is the only meeting in November.

On the election…(more will be discussed at the meeting)

Many were surprised by the election results from night.  While personally hoping the outcome would be different, deep down in my soul I have always had an uneasy feeling about both Romney and Obama.  Both are in favor of big government.  Yes, the flavor is a little different, but the brand is very similar.  Choosing the Republican may have slowed down the nation from the economic cliff, but we would still be heading that way.

I have no reason to address the Democratic party in this analysis because they have been morally bankrupt and unprincipled for a long time.  A group that has no problem with the killing unborn children, really needs no other explanation.

The Republican Party, on the other hand, has continually sacrificed our founding principles, from the entitlement state to the police state.  They like to talk about how the liberals are “shredding” the constitution, but they are just as culpable.  Many in the GOP are globalists as is evidenced by their embrace of Green Tier and Agenda 21.  The leadership doesn’t want true leaders who stand on principle.  Make no mistake about it, the party elite expect legislators to do what they are told, or they will find a way to get rid of you even if it means giving up that seat to the opposition.  The Republican party leadership did this to several people we personally know including Rep. Evan Wynn, using the redistricting process to make his district predominately Democrat.

This is what John Adams and George Washington said about the two party system:

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution. (John Adams)

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind, (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight,) the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.

It serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another. (George Washington)

So where does this leave us…are we on a sinking ship?

The only answer I can give you is this:  Pray and seek guidance from the Lord.  If you do not already have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, take the time to meet him.  He is truly the only one with all the answers.

Proverbs 1:7 – The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Do We Have A 1st Amendment Anymore?

This bill was signed in secret by the President in March of 2012.  When we say we have all of the pieces in place for a “turn-key dictatorship”, this is further proof.  Have we become a third world nation where despots control what is seen and heard?

Let’s see who voted for this terrible piece of legislation: HR 347 Vote Tally

All of the WI Congressional Reps voted for this bill.  The U.S. Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent, so there is no record of how they voted on it.  However, all it would have took was for a Senator to object and ask for a roll call vote.

This is disgraceful!!!

Is the media finally paying attention to Obama’s eligibility?

A very interesting event will take place on March 1, 2012.  Maricopa County AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio will hold a press conference releasing the results of his investigation into the eligibility of Barak Obama to be president.  Below is an excerpt from World Net Daily’s article:

Media finally paying attention to eligibility?

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Poll after poll in recent months has indicated that Americans have a high level of concern over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, with one poll showing fully half of the nation wants Congress to investigate the question.

But reporters for the traditional media – networks, major newspapers, major news corporations and conglomerates – mostly have giggled when talk turns to the serious question of just what the U.S. Constitution requires of presidents.

Nevertheless, media organizations from all political persuasions are seeking admittance to a news conference to be held by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz.

The event is tomorrow at 1 p.m. Mountain Standard Time in Phoenix, 3 p.m. Eastern, and will be live-streamed by WND.

The topic of discussion will be an investigation by Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse into concerns about Obama’s eligibility. It’s the first time an official law enforcement report has addressed many of the allegations about the presumptive 2012 Democratic nominee for president.

The issues include Obama’s eligibility under the U.S. Constitution’s requirements, questions about his use of a Connecticut Social Security number and the image of his purported birth certificate from Hawaii.  (read more)

 

The Real State of the Union by John Stossel

What should Obama have said in his speech? Here’s what John Stossel wishes he’d said.

| January 26, 2012

Has Barack Obama learned nothing in three years? Last night, during his State of the Union address, he promised “a blueprint for an economy.” But economies are crushed by blueprints. An economy is really nothing more than people participating in an unfathomably complex spontaneous network of exchanges aimed at improving their material circumstances. It can’t even be diagrammed, much less planned. And any attempt at it will come to grief.

Politicians like Obama believe they are the best judges of how we should conduct our lives. Of course a word like “blueprint” would occur to the president. He, like most who want his job, aspires to be the architect of a new society.

But we who love our lives and our freedom say: No, thanks. We need no social architect. We need liberty under law. That’s it.

Obama—and most Republicans are no different—doesn’t understand the real liberal revolution that transformed civilization. The crux of that revolution is that law should define general visible rules of just conduct, applicable to all, with no eye to particular outcomes. In other words, as Nobel laureate F.A. Hayek taught, the only “purpose” of law is to enable us all to pursue our individual purposes in peace.

If Obama really wanted, as he says, a society in which “everybody gets a fair shot,” he would work to shrink government so that the sphere of freedom could expand. Instead, he expands government and raises taxes on wealthier people, as though giving politicians more money were a way to make society better. Instead, the interventionist state rigs the game on behalf of special interests.

What should Obama have said in his speech? Here’s what I wish he’d said:(click  to the goto the full story)

OBAMA TELLS SAN FRANCISCO HE WILL BANKRUPT THE COAL INDUSTRY

Cap and Trade is a tool used to bankrupt industry in this country by radical environmentalists.  This is why the States need to pass a prohibition on any Cap and Trade implementation.
