    I had friend who was cop. Actually he was police inspector (detective) when SHTF in first few weeks he simply used his badge and authority in chaos and „confiscate“ gold from people in the name of „cause“. The cause back then was to support our fight against the enemy troops who have surrounded our city. But the cause can be anything of course. At first it was story about how it is not secure to have gold inside home because bad security state in town, so it will be kept in safe in town hall. Sounds stupid maybe, but people...

    Minnesota has always been known for its thousands of lakes and cold winters; but now it is drawing attention as a recruiting ground for Islamists willing to fight for ISIS. According to recent reports and the examination of dead bodies, about 10 Minnesotans have joined ISIS in its crusade to destroy the world. The good news is that two of these swine have been killed, but the bad news is that there will likely be more of them coming forward to “settle a score” with Western Civilization. This festering situation has been in the works for a long time. The...

    It was inevitable. Rookie Michael Sam, heralded as the first openly gay player in the National Football League, was released Saturday by the St. Louis Rams, prompting the liberal blog Mother Jones to run what amounted to a photo of the player, along with a provocative, almost juvenile headline. The post, “Michael Sam, Who Is Better At Football Than You Will Ever Be At Anything, Has Been Cut By the Rams,” offered no perspective whatsoever. In fact, other than the headline, there were no words. When Sam was first drafted, it was clear that if he were to eventually be...

    Rapper Nipsey Hussle has been arrested for interfering in the arrest of a man authorities were after for violating his probation. The incident occurred on the night of Friday, August 29th. Police responded to a report that a man had violated his probation and was currently located in a clothing store in downtown Los Angeles. Upon searching the store for the alleged parole violator, they came across Hussle, who committed an undisclosed action that authorities viewed as obstructing an officer which subsequently resulted in his arrest. He was released shortly after his arrest after posting bail in the amount...

    The National Lawyers Guild had legal observers on the ground in Ferguson to monitor protests against the killing of unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, by a Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. They were also present to help with jail support for community residents. But, while working, four of the NLG’s observers fell victim to the police occupation they were trying to help Ferguson fight and were arrested. As Dennis Black, one of the legal observers arrested, commented, “Ferguson is a pilot program of what’s to come when communities respond to police brutality.” He and others had traveled from Detroit to...

    At noon on Saturday, August 9, Michael Brown, 18, and his friend, Dorian Johnson, crossed paths with Ferguson, Mo. Police Officer, Darren Wilson. By 12:04 p.m., Wilson had fatally shot Brown six times. His body was left out for hours as other officers responded to the scene. The next evening, his family and community gathered at the site of his death for a vigil in his honor. After a while, they decided to march down West Florissant Ave. to a QuikTrip gas station/convenience store. After that, the details of what is happening in Ferguson become murky, depending on the source....

But that changed August 9, when photos of Brown’s lifeless body, shot by a cop and left sprawled in the street, kept appearing on social media. “I saw a dead body on my timeline. It kept appearing hour after hour and somebody said ‘I hope somebody gets up and does something about it,” said Russell, 30. “Then I heard his mother on TV say, ‘Why did they kill my son.’” Those words triggered something in Russell. He rallied...

As the man backs away, Mr Brown turns and walks in a threatening manner towards the shopkeeper. Michael Brown is 6’4” and 300 pounds. Any physical altercation between the robber and merchant is a mismatch of force. The actions of Michael Brown are deemed a “strong-arm robbery with the use of...

Judicial Watch first reported the scheme two years ago when Countrywide Financial Corporation doled out $335 million to settle its discrimination lawsuit with the feds. The money was supposed to be distributed to more than 200,000 minority victims who supposedly were charged higher interest rates and fees than white borrowers based on their race not their credit.

    At the height of the financial crisis in 2008 the U.S. government forced some of the countries largest banks to take “bailout” funds amounting to billions of dollars in order to keep them from going bankrupt. It was a move designed to not only keep too-big-to-fail financial institutions afloat, but one that would inspire confidence and keep American consumers spending. As a result, the last several years have seen stock markets reach record highs with Americans continuing to rack up personal debt for real estate, vehicles, education, and consumer goods as if the financial crisis never happened.

    When President Obama declared last Super Bowl Sunday that there was "not even a smidgeon of corruption" at the Internal Revenue Service, he gave his personal Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval to it and especially vouched for Lois Lerner, the key figure in the IRS scandal over the treatment of tax exemption applications. To vouch is "to give personal assurances; give a guarantee" (www.thefreedictionary.com/vouching). Team Obama predictably blamed conspiracy theorists for the idea that something was amiss at the IRS. To date, no evidence has surfaced that President Obama personally ordered discriminatory treatment of tax exemption applications to promote his...

The term initially sprung up in that great cradle of pointless conversation, left-wing academia, and has gone on to dominate the American political discussion with increasing furor in the years of the Obama Administration. Liberals assert that the causation of so many of the social inequities in our nation stem from the inherent privilege that white Americans enjoy in our society, as a result of our history and racial discrimination. As is the case, however, with nearly all liberal-progressive talking...

The argument against polygamy was it did just that – placing women, some troublingly young, and children at the behest of powerful patriarchs. Just three years ago, the B.C. Supreme Court seemed to put the debate to bed, ruling that Canadian laws that banned polygamy were constitutional and important. But now...

Instead, on Monday he'll be mourned at his funeral, more than two weeks after his fatal shooting by a white police officer— an act that ignited days of violent protests and reawakened racial tensions that still linger in the nation. Brown, who was unarmed when he was killed, became an instant symbol of racial injustice as protesters flooded into the streets after his death.

But now she began to notice an oddly powerful personal reaction to "the small stuff" – like people littering, or neighbours chopping down an old tree. So, she's a bossy...

    Jim Hoft and Fox News say he did, CNN says he didn’t, and now here’s WaPo saying yep, he did. Your move, New York Times. The signs of easing tensions came as a family friend of the officer who fatally shot Brown came forward to offer a version of the incident with new details, saying that the officer suffered a fracture to his eye socket in a scuffle with the unarmed teenager before opening fire. Hospital X-rays of the injury have been taken and will be shared with a grand jury that is weighing evidence to determine whether Officer Darren...

    Most of us understand that yelling “fire” in a crowded theater is not a valid exercise of free speech. Why, then, do we permit the irresponsible, agenda-driven media, the race-baiters and poverty pimps to do so? Black America has plenty of problems, and not all of them are of their own making. But a significant portion are. In theory, black families should be doing well. We’ve had how many generations of affirmative action? For some families this has worked well. But for a lot of them it hasn’t. Why? We can start with the phrase “black family.” In a lot...

    DES MOINES, Iowa —Police and protesters have clashed for more than a week in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri. Local filmmaker Justin Norman captured dozens of images and video of the conflict to document the tense situation. Norman said it didn’t take long to witness a physical dispute on a street corner. “Before a half-hour of being there, I saw this woman forced to the ground, handcuffed and put in the back of a police car, arrested for standing and holding a sign,” Norman said. The distance between Des Moines and Ferguson is about 340 miles, but Norman...

    A lot of racism exists in the United States, but not what you think: it's anti-white racism among a great number of blacks, and among Leftist media and politicians of every colour. What on 9 August happened in Ferguson, a suburb of St Louis, Missouri, where black delinquent Michael Brown was shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson, is like a rerun of the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case of 2012. What the Left, the media and the race industry - the people that author Tammy Bruce calls "Misery Merchants", as they have made a career out of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Protesters against the police actions in Ferguson, Mo. as well as police killings of other suspects in California and other states gathered in Oakland on Wednesday. A couple of hundred demonstrators gathered at Oakland Police headquarters on 7th and Broadway and faced off with officers in riot gear. Some protesters unveiled a new tactic, by holding up mirrors in the faces of officers. “I was holding up the mirror because I wanted the police to just look at themselves. Especially if they were about to take some kind of action just so they had to acknowledge what they were doing,”...

    In June of last year I wrote that the future of ObamaCare would depend upon the outcome of a small number of under-reported lawsuits filed to prevent the IRS illegally re-writing the Affordable Care Act. At issue in the lawsuits: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides tax credits and subsidies for the purchase of health insurance through exchanges that are run by “a governmental agency or nonprofit entity that is established by a state.” (2) By mid 2013 however, 33 states had refused to build an ObamaCare Exchange so necessary to the functioning of the law. And although the ACA...

    "criminally-biased selective moralizing  -from a suitably safe distance" It's easy to criticize at-a-distance... but none of the people currently protesting against Israel would behave any differently in the same circumstances -and many of them would behave a helluva lot worse. This is why the selective outrage we're seeing is SO truly nauseating. Where were all you 'progressive humanitarians' when Assad was butchering 1000s in Syria, or Bashir in Sudan? Where were the angry mass demonstrations for those people? Or for the victims of the (Muslim) butchery in Nigeria? Or for the 1000s murdered in Iraq just recently... in cold blood. But the...

    Americans were made acutely aware of the threat posed by Western jihadist fighters joining the ranks of ISIS in Syria and Iraq when a man with a London accent beheaded James Wright Foley as part of a taped ultimatum to President Barack Obama. Inexplicably, President Barack Obama chose not to even abstractly address the nature of that threat, even though he plans to personally chair a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on precisely this subject next month. A July intelligence estimate suggested that up to 3,000 ISIS militants were of European origin and 1,500 of those are young...

    It’s time to impeach a real crook named Nixon.  This time, it’s the current governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, who has violated every principle of American jurisprudence and individual due process rights by calling for the “vigorous prosecution”–not merely the diligent investigation–of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.  Nixon went before the cameras and lights today to demand, again and again, “justice for Michael Brown” and “justice for the Brown family,” before any facts or evidence had even been considered by a grand jury. This is appalling.  Nixon is openly declaring without due process that he, representing the most powerful force of government in the state of Missouri, has...

    It’s never been exactly cozy between American Muslims and African Americans. But with Ferguson—and Gaza—that’s changing.The Muslim-American community of which I’m part hasn’t been great in standing up with and for African Americans. A lack of empathy and racism are the main culprits. What makes this especially astonishing is that 30 percent of the Muslim-American population is African-American. You would think that there would be natural alliances, but that hasn’t been the case. At least not up until now. The shooting of Michael Brown and the heavy-handed response by the police that followed has struck a nerve among Muslims. It...

    Radical communists, anarchists, even an ISIS flag waver; members of the far left from CA to NY are taking advantage of the death of Michael Brown to foment fury in Ferguson. A revolutionary named Gregory “Joey” Johnson is promoting and agitating local protestors as shown in a Missouri web post by writer Duane Lester. (1) Johnson is wearing a black tee shirt with white lettering: “The System Has No Future. Revolution Does.” He is chanting in childlike, sing song lyrics that say there will be no police brutality, no wars, no oppression when the Revolution comes. Using hatred of America,...
