    “I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyana Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who were murdered in cold blood. And in respect for the peaceful protest I want to say hands up, don’t shoot, black lives matter. That’s it your honor.” Michigan Live described the crime spree by the two men and their sentences. Photos of the victims are posted at MLive as well as photos of their killers yawning and making faces in court. “Bobbish, 17, and Kudla, 18,...

    Milwaukee County Sheriff and conservative commentator David Clarke told Fox & Friends Thursday morning that the Justice Department’s likely decision not to pursue a civil rights case against Ferguson officer Darren Wilson was a vindication for the officer and an indictment of “race hustlers” like Attorney General Eric Holder and Reverend Al Sharpton. “The grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri got it right, Clarke said. “Officer Wilson has been exonerated. The thing I want to know is how does he get his reputation back?” Clarke reserved much of his ire for Sharpton. “I don’t expect anything intelligent to come out of...

    I have some sad news, folks. Al Sharpton will not be appearing on Dancing with the Stars any time soon. Sharpton said so in comments earlier today addressing criticism that he and his organization goes to certain cities where tragedy has happened for the publicity. The reverend and MSNBC host said, “That’s exactly what we want.” He explained, “Part of the role of activists is to get your attention. You don’t see me on Dancing with the Stars. You see us dealing with social issues and to draw the attention to those issues.”

    **SNIP** “It won’t help with the police unions, certainly,” said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf. “They don’t like Al Sharpton; never have. They see him as an enemy, and furthermore, they see him as a lawbreaker who owes millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.” “Politically, it is unfortunate that he seems to want to keep being identified with Sharpton so explicitly, given Sharpton’s reputation out there,” added Doug Muzzio of Baruch College. “So the mayor is, in a sense, being truthful to himself, but that not be the wisest thing politically.” Political experts pointed out that it is unlikely that Mayor...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell used a 'King Day' speech at a breakfast hosted by Al Sharpton to promote Obamacare. Burwell, who was one of two Obama administration officials to speak, asked attendees of the National Action Network breakfast to 'tell your neighbors and tell your friends' to sign up for health care insurance. 'In the spirit of Dr. King, we're asking you to help us again, in big ways and small,' Obama's health czar told the activist organization, calling on them to help HHS sign up as many African Americans as possible before the Feb. 15 close...

    Protesters invoking Michael Brown and Ferguson burst into an auditorium at Harris-Stowe State University early Monday afternoon and briefly shut down a Martin Luther King Day celebration. The protesters and Harris-Stowe students later confronted one another outside the venue, as police converged on the area. Shortly before 1 p.m., as the King observance was in progress in the crowded auditorium, about two-dozen protesters came in waving an upside-down American flag and chanting "No Justice, No Peace." They took the stage, and as the crowd began filing out angrily, they used a microphone to accuse the university and the clergy who...

    Martin Luther King Jr.’s accomplishments include being one of the most revered civil rights leader in history. Al Sharpton’s accomplishments include dodging taxes and being really awful at reading a teleprompter. But that didn’t stop Geraldo Rivera from comparing the two men on Bill O’Reilly’s show. O’Reilly had him on to discuss Fox poll numbers that suggest that, overall, Americans are not fond of the Rev. “Al Sharpton’s constituency really likes him a lot. He is the man for the black civil rights movement right now,” Rivera replied. “It’s sad that a shakedown artist tax cheat can be put in...

    By the tone and tenor of the reaction to the recently announced Academy Award nominations, you would think that old Jim Crow himself had been resurrected and is stalking the land. No black actors are up for best actor or supporting actor. The film "Selma" - which some historians claim is horribly inaccurate - was "snubbed" (although nominated as Best Picture) as was the film's female director. The reason? 97% of Academy voters are white and 75% are men. Case closed, right? It is - if you live your life looking at reality through a prism of race and gender....

    Obama dispatched Valerie Jarrett in 2008 to woo the reverend. Near the end of 2007, Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett met with Al Sharpton in New York City and began to cement a relationship that would eventually make the inflammatory activist the president’s “go-to man” on race, according to multiple sources. The backdrop to the incipient Obama-Sharpton alliance was the then-senator’s 2008 presidential campaign, which still hadn’t locked away the black vote, and the political cross-currents created by two other controversial reverends, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright. That tentative relationship has now grown into a full-blown partnership that has vastly increased...

    Middle School Kids Taken To Hear Louis Farrakhan Call For Violence Against The 'Crackers' "We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!” 1.2.2015 News Jeff Dunetz An administrator at Booker T. Washington Middle School in Baltimore, MD, took forty young teenage students as young as eleven-years-old to the 2nd Annual Black United Summit International (BUSI) conference where they heard bigoted purveyor of hatred Louis Farrakhan reference "white people as “crackers” and a call for “retaliation” for the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson." According to Danette Clark, ​who wrote about the conference for the Education...

    I'm not one for boycotts, but I am one for data. And I like this kind of data. It's just good to have data when spending money. That's all. I mean, if I have no choice in keeping a SIGNIFICANTLY large portion of my money from being squandered by the folks that I've freaking employed up on the Hill (like drunk girls on Spring break with their Daddy's credit cards), I'm going to be as informed as possible with what's left of said money. Thus, the data thing. You know. According to the source article above and the New York...

    The American Interest ^ | December 30, 2014 | Nicholas M. Gallagher
    “Where you stand depends on where you sit” is favorite aphorism of progressive activists. It’s used to imply that “privilege” can blind someone to inconvenient facts, e.g. police aggression against minorities. But based on the events of the past few months, from Ferguson onward, it has become pretty clear that both left- and right-leaning groups suffer from this sort of narrowed vision. Writing in USA Today, Glenn Reynolds (a.k.a. Instapundit) points out that tribalism—the desire to identify “your” group and stick with it, no matter what—explains an awful lot about these recent national tensions: [T]here is much opportunity for political...
  • Fox’s Jesse Watters: If Police Were Racist, They Would Just Let Black People Kill Each Other

    A discussion of Fox News’ The Five Tuesday afternoon surrounding the ongoing tension between New York City Mayor Bill be Blasio and local police unions following the murder of two NYPD officers last week led co-host Jesse Watters to a seriously hyperbolic declaration about the idea that police could be seen as racist. The Five hosts Eric Bolling and Kimberly Guilfoyle were discussing what they see as a lack of “respect” for NYPD officers from Mayor de Blasio and other officials where Watters jumped in with his assessment. “Everyone is saying that the NYPD is racist,” Watters said. “If the...
  • When it comes to House race, Rev. Al Sharpton still doesn't get Staten Island

    Staten Island Advance ^ | Tom Wrobleski
    Every time the Rev. Al Sharpton talks about Staten Island, all he does is show how little he understands the borough. The latest example? Rev. Al's take on District Attorney Daniel Donovan looking like the GOP front-runner in the race to replace Rep. Michael Grimm in Congress. (SNIP) Maybe Sharpton didn't get the memo, but the post-Garner protests on Staten Island were mild compared to what was seen elsewhere. The Island did not erupt into chaos and looting, as was seen in Ferguson, Mo., when a grand jury there declined to indict a white police officer in the shooting death...
  • Steve Scalise apologized, will Rand Paul apologize for meeting with black supremacists (short title)

    On Tuesday, Tea Party favorite-turned-pro-amnesty Boehner lackey Steve Scalise issued an apology for addressing a KKK-linked white supremacist group in 2002… It was a mistake I regret, and I emphatically oppose the divisive racial and religious views groups like these hold. But just last month, likely 2016 presidential candidate Paul proudly shared photos from his meeting with homophobic black supremacist Al Sharpton…

    Resist we much? We just can’t. Al Sharpton is the funniest man on MSNBC, and by default the funniest man in cable news. On a network populated with no small share of buffoons, Sharpton’s ultra-pro-Obama boosterism and alarmingly frequent mispronunciation of names, places, and objects has made PoliticsNation a must-watch for anyone who needs a good, hearty laugh.

Seven people were arrested in all, including the person police were originally seeking, Woobenson Morrisset.

    After reading about the gruesome murders of two New York City police officers, I was reminded of my early years as a cop. On a cold, blustery night in February 1964, at the tender young age of 21, I walked my first “beat” as a rookie in a high-crime area of Brooklyn. After graduating from the four-month Police Academy course, I was assigned to the 79th Precinct in the middle of the predominantly African-American section known as Bedford/Stuyvesant. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were murdered on the same street where I walked that first midnight-to-8 am tour of duty....
