  • Liberals "well intentioned but misguided?" Or viscious, violent thugs destroying free speech?

    05/25/2016 8:51:10 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 36 replies
    I can remember for years a lot of the talk radio people saying that liberals were "well intentioned, but misguided." That may have been true once, but if it was the case years ago, it is not anymore. Just look at the anti trumpers and their rioting or the black lives matter filth storming the stage at a Yiannopoulis event and you can see what liberals really are today--viscious, fascist, thugs trying to shut down free speech with violence and intimidation. Is there any way that these people can be thought of as "well intentioned?" The answer is clearly NO.

    The Nationwide Crime Wave Is Building As the homicide rate keeps rising in many cities, even some who dismissed the ‘Ferguson effect’ admit the phenomenon is real. By Heather Mac Donald May 23, 2016 Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey has again drawn the wrath of the White House for calling attention to the rising violence in urban areas. Homicides increased 9% in the largest 63 cities in the first quarter of 2016; nonfatal shootings were up 21%, according to a Major Cities Chiefs Association survey. Those increases come on top of last year’s 17% rise in homicides in...

Police responded with tear gas. The camp on the border village of Idomeni has become home to around 10,000 migrants, more than four months after the Balkans route into northern Europe was shut off. Greek officials have recently announced their plans to evict the camp.

With morgues overflowing, medicines running out, and apocalyptic scenes playing out across the nation, Venezuelans took to the streets of Caracas today - at the behest of the opposition - demanding a recall referendum to end Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's socialist rule. The troubled nations leader was not happy and security forces fired tear gas and shut subway stations to block the thousands of protesters. Over the last two weeks, several provinces have hosted scenes of looting in pharmacies, shopping malls, supermarkets, and food...

    Activities will resume Sunday morning at Stone Mountain State Park one day after hundreds of protesters clashed with police. Eight counter-protesters had been arrested by late Saturday morning for refusing to take their masks off, authorities said. "Anytime there is a white supremacist that attempts to promote their horrible views there needs to be people out in opposition," protester Charlie Abrams said. At least one was seen spraying a Georgia State Patrol officer with pepper spray. "We're not anti-cop, we're not anti-white people or whatever the case may be. We're anti-racist white people," protester Mac McCoy said.

    The dangerous propaganda of Trump and his allies continues, drawing the American public ever more closely to a taste of Trump’s notions of “democracy” and “winning.” Some have stated that Trump is willing to do anything to get his way. This is arguably possible and that is the risk we are facing. Trump has been promising that riots will occur if he does not get the nomination. Arguably he is not warning but signaling to his supporters what he expects of them. Trump stated in an interview with the New York Times that even if he does not reach the...

In fact, they’re confident security plans are coming together and staffing shouldn’t be an issue. Nicholas Vroutos runs Nick’s Sports Corner steps away...

It’s a prediction that local leaders have called “irresponsible” and “dangerous,” and one which continues to fuel the narrative that repressive, military police tactics are necessary during the RNC. This month, the city posted a request for bids on a spectrum of riot...

    Yeah, no. “He was speaking figuratively” is the one argument you can’t make in defense of what he said this morning on CNN. You can say it’d be unjust if he ended up with 1,200 delegates and lost the nomination anyway in a floor fight. Some would disagree, but Trump would have a lot of support on that. You can say that he wasn’t condoning riots as a reaction to losing the nomination, merely observing matter of factly that they’d happen with or without his approval. There’s truth to that too, although it’s harder to give a candidate the benefit...

    Many Ferguson residents expressed concern Tuesday that a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice could financially ruin the St. Louis suburb where a police officer fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown. Residents were about evenly split on whether the city should go along with the agreement, which includes overhauling police policies, training and practices. Cost concerns were a common refrain among opponents. The cost of implementing the Justice Department-mandated changes would be significant — preliminary estimates are at least $500,000, Mayor James Knowles said. The city already faces a $2.8 million deficit in part to legal fees, lost sales tax...

    "NEW EMAIL shows adviser telling Hillary to CREATE PALESTINIAN UNREST in order to pressure Israel!!" The Free Beacon caught a pretty remarkable email that went to Hillary and recommended that she spark fake protests among Palestinians in order to pressure Israel: Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan created by her then-advisers to foment unrest among Palestinian citizens and spark protests in order to push the Israeli government back to the negotiating table, according to emails released as part of the investigation into the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s private email server. In a Dec, 18, 2011, email, former...

    Back in November 2010 I reported in this space on the murder of Aaron Shannon Jr., who at age 5 was shot and killed in his South Los Angeles backyard. Such a killing is horrific under any circumstances, but it was all the more so in that it happened on the afternoon of Halloween, and that Aaron was wearing his Spider-Man costume in joyful anticipation of trick-or-treating that evening. Compounding the horror even further was the motive for the crime: retaliation against a street gang to which neither little Aaron nor anyone in his family had any affiliation. Aaron's...

    (CNN)An Ohio grand jury has decided not to return an indictment in the 2014 police shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, prosecutor Tim McGinty said Monday. Rice was holding a pellet gun when he was shot. It was "reasonable" to believe that the officer who killed the boy was facing a threat, McGinty said. The officer was in training outside a Cleveland recreation center in November 2014. The shooting sparked controversy given Tamir's age and the fact that he had a gun that resembled a handgun. McGinty called Rice's killing an "absolute tragedy." "But it was not, by the law...

    Barack Obama is preparing for his final State of the Union Address, which he'll deliver January 12. And the president is not looking to slow down as the end of his presidency nears. "I've got 12 months left to squeeze every ounce of change I can while I'm still in office. And that's what I intend to do," Obama writes in an email to supporters. We've done a lot of remarkable things together this year, and it's because of committed citizens like you that this country keeps moving forward. You keep proving the cynics wrong. On January 12, I'll be...

    A crisis mediation group plans to open up several sites around Baltimore after the verdict is announced in the first trial of a police officer charged in Freddie Gray's arrest and death. Changa Onyango, director of Community Mediation Baltimore, said he has about 75 mediators in the city who plan to set up sites indoors where people can come and express their opinions safely. He said the "emotional energy" of people gathering outside in West Baltimore in April contributed to sparking the riots. His team is going over several options to help people express themselves, including setting up open mics....
