Even As Obama And Holder Race-Bait, Americans Know It’s Not The Cops – It’s Black Culture

obama holder

The Department of Justice and the White House have been doing their level best recently to hype race problems in the Ferguson police department and make it seem like there is this huge problem with police in the United States targeting blacks. If you listen to the administration and the media, you would think that America is a totalitarian police state with poor blacks getting shot on every corner in their neighborhoods by white police officers and the KKK running rampant through every inner-city in America. We all know this is not true.

Although it IS true that blacks are getting killed every day in large numbers by other blacks, recent polling shows that Americans understand what is really going on. The problem is not the police; it is black culture.

In a recently released poll, Rasmussen reports:

The fallout continues in Ferguson, Missouri, following a Justice Department report accusing the city government of a widespread pattern of racial discrimination. But in most inner city communities, is racism the real problem?  Not according to 70% of Likely U.S. Voters who say the level of crime in low-income inner city communities is a bigger problem in America today than police discrimination against minorities. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 20% think police discrimination is the bigger problem.

Few Americans expected white police officer Darren Wilson who killed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson last summer to be charged with murder, and most opposed the Justice Department trying to prosecute him after that. Wilson was not charged by a local grand jury, and the Justice Department also failed to find any civil rights violations by the police officer.

Americans are solidly convinced that their local police are their protectors and give them high marks for the job they do. Most also believe deaths that involve policemen are usually the fault of the suspect, not the cop.

America needs a president and a justice department that can deal with the reality on the ground in black neighborhoods instead of laying blame away from where it actually lies. There must be accountability on this issue within the black community itself, or there will be no progress economically for millions of blacks stuck in bad neighborhoods drowning in violence. We need an administration and a leader who can bring America together racially instead of the racist policies of the Obama administration.

This poll also showed that most Americans, black and white, consider race relations to be much worse under Obama. That is the reality of the situation.

Ferguson Protester Won’t Believe Facts About Michael Brown Case Amidst Shooting Of Two Officers

Protester Ferguson

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and a participant in the recent Ferguson protest that involved the shooting of two police officers butted heads while discussing this latest shooting, as well as that of Michael Brown.

The protester, Ivory Ned, called the twin shootings a “reaction” to the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson.

“You should be saying it’s wrong,” Hannity said, listing off the facts of the Brown case and adding that people shouldn’t be out shooting cops.

Ned couldn’t admit to any wrongdoing on Brown’s account, repeatedly stating that “the fact was Mike Brown laid on the ground for four hours.”

Hannity read him facts from Attorney General Eric Holder’s DOJ report, but Ned stayed defiant. He asked the host to put the facts up on “live TV,” despite being read the facts moments earlier from the DOJ:

Witness accounts suggesting that Brown was standing still with his hands raised in an unambiguous signal of surrender when Wilson shot Brown are inconsistent with the physical evidence, are otherwise not credible because of internal inconsistencies, or are not credible because of inconsistencies with other credible evidence.

In contrast, Wilson’s account of Brown’s actions, if true, would establish that the shootings were not objectively unreasonable under the relevant Constitutional standards governing an officer’s use of deadly force. Multiple credible witnesses corroborate virtually every material aspect of Wilson’s account and are consistent with the physical evidence.

Ned refused to believe the reports and argued with Hannity for the rest of the interview.

Sheriff David Clarke Disgusted With Obama And Holder After Mo. Police Shooting


Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke slammed President Barack Obama’s tweet following the shooting of two Ferguson, Mo., police officers on Thursday night’s The Kelly File on Fox News.

Sheriff Clarke said the president’s tweet is not being well-received by him or his fellow law enforcement officers.

That might score him point with hipsters, but it’s not going over real big with me and it’s not going over real big with the American law enforcement officer.

Kelly read a tweet that summed up the inconsistency from the White House regarding the Michael Brown case:

Mike Brown got a speech and forty DOJ investigators. Two police officers get a tweet.

Clarke told Kelly that Obama “took the lazy way out” by issuing a tweet.

He didn’t have the decency to put on a suit and go to the East Room or the Rose Garden and issue a heartfelt condemnation of what’s going on in these assaults against officers.

The sheriff told the Fox News host that he expects the nation’s authority figures to back the police when necessary and not undermine them.

But what we expect — and it’s all we expect, Megyn — is we expect that responsible people in this country back us in these situations. When we’re wrong, we’re wrong. But when we’re right, I expect them to come out in very strong language, indicate that and give us some sense that at least they have our backs in these situations and they’re not looking to indict based on emotional mob rhetoric or bring criminal charges or even slam our reputations.

Kelly noted that although Officer Darren Wilson was exonerated of all charges by the Department of Justice, President Obama was not forceful in acknowledging that verdict.

Breaking: This Huge Development In The Trayvon Martin Shooting May Just Close The Case

Images Credit: Orlando Sentinel

After a lengthy investigation extending almost to the third anniversary of the fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, the U.S. Justice Department is bringing its civil rights probe to an end.

ABC News reports that Attorney General Eric Holder and his legal team at Justice will not file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, the man who killed the teen during a confrontation in 2012.

“Federal prosecutors concluded there is not sufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Fla., intentionally violated Martin’s civil rights, sources told ABC News.”

You’ll recall that the state of Florida prosecuted the neighborhood watch volunteer, trying to convict him for murder and manslaughter. After a highly emotional trial that drew international attention, a jury acquitted Zimmerman in the summer of 2013.

In protests surrounding the racially charged trial, Al Sharpton played a major role in supposedly speaking for the Martin family. In a separate post, Western Journalism this morning reported on a new investigative video from conservative activist James O’Keefe, dealing with the anti-Sharpton sentiment expressed by some people involved in the controversial Martin case.

As ABC notes of the just-announced decision at Justice:

“Privately and publicly, Justice Department officials have been telegraphing all along that they were unlikely to file charges against Zimmerman.

And in November 2013, Holder said the case against Zimmerman “in substantial part was resolved” with his acquittal months earlier.”

In April 2013, as the Orlando Sentinel reported, Trayvon Martin’s parents settled a wrongful death lawsuit against the homeowners’ association of the subdivision where Zimmerman was on patrol when he shot the 17-year-old. The amount of that settlement was said to have been more than $1 million.

With its findings in the Trayvon Martin case now a matter of public record, the Justice Department is continuing its investigation into possible civil rights violations in connection with the Michael Brown police-involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri.

Scandals Revealed: Neil Cavuto Admits It’s All Fox News’ Fault

Neil Cavuto

Fox News host Neil Cavuto, on his show Your World, jumped on the Obama Administration for their fondness of only criticizing Fox News. According to Cavuto, Obama’s administration ritually despises Fox News and makes a point to say so to the media.

He then launched into a sarcastic tirade on the administration’s claim that Fox would have nothing to talk about if they weren’t perpetuating potentially damning information.

“Pick a crisis, any crisis, you name it. Fox News is behind it,” Cavuto said. “Worse yet, Fox News created it. And I’m here to admit the White House ain’t telling you the half of it. How clever we are, how devious we are. If only I had known that you had known.”

Cavuto spilled the beans on everything and cited Fox News as the culprit “every time.” He joked that the cold weather, the measles outbreak, natural disasters, and even the JFK assassination was Fox News’ fault.

He even blamed the sinking of the Titanic on his employer because the captain of the ship resembles Rupert Murdoch.

“So Rupert Murdoch with a beard, don’t you think?” Cavuto joked.
