Major Cities Across America See Spike In Murder Rate

by Jack

Cities across America are seeing a startling rise in murders on President Obama’s watch. Milwaukee was once a clean, prosperous city then the far left democrats took control and down it went. An old story for many of America’s largest cities. So far this year in Milwaukee, 104 people have been killed and we’ve still got 3 months to go! There were 86 homicides in 2014 and they thought that was bad!

In Baltimore homicides just hit 215, up from 138 at the same point in 2014. Baltimore is run by democrats and they have a black city council, a black mayor and black AG, so now who can they blame? More than 30 other democrat-run cities with large black populations have also reported similar increases in violence. In New Orleans, 120 people had been killed as of late August, compared with 98 killed during the same period a year ago.

In Washington with all their tough gun control laws the murder toll is now 105, compared with 73 people a year ago. And in St. Louis, 136 people had been killed this year, a 60 percent rise from the 85 murders the city had by the same time last year. Now consider, these are mostly black on black homicides!

What’s the cause of this? Law enforcement experts tend say one thing in public and another in private. They know this crime wave is do to the actions and inaction’s in the White House. Barack Obama has created a false cause of victim hood for blacks and its resulted in distrust and disrespect for law enforcement. Police have reacted to this by not being as aggressive as they once were and crime has in-filled that enforcement vacuum.

Of course there are many disparate factors to be considered here and the reasons change from city to city, but it boils down to several main causal factors: Obama’s tacit endorsement of sanctuary cities and open borders. Obama’s tendency to be automatically siding with blacks against the police. Obama’s refusal to come down hard on the provocateurs, the race-baiters and black militants stirring up the hate. In example of this, recently we have seen these crazy militants calling for murder of police officers and its actually happened too! And lastly is the rise of large drug dealing black gangs with tons of money and guns and that thin blue line is no longer the threat to them it once was. The result has been a surge in black on black homicides and Obama helped it happen.

President Obama has had many opportunities to take a leadership position in the black community, because he can speak with great authority. He could say something about the rapes, robberies, murders and drugs that plague the black communities that could change lives. But, he didn’t. Demanding accountability and supporting police could have been one of his crowning achievements! Instead he has made it his priority to blame the justice system for incarcerating too many blacks. In Obama’s bias world, it must be the system’s fault, it couldn’t possibly be the offender’s fault.

After all his missteps, and they are many, I don’t think it’s any stretch to say Barack Hussein Obama has fundamentally transformed this country into a debt and crime riddled country that is now far more racially divided nation than it was when he took office.

In Iowa Republican Insiders Rejected – Carson Neck and Neck with Trump

Posted by Tina

The Republican primaries in Iowa are proving to be a great indicator of the American people rejecting the dysfunction, overreach and power of government elites.

A survey of Iowa voters revealed that, “56 per cent of Iowa GOP’ers want a presidential nominee with no political pedigree at all.” In fact the top four contenders all come from the private sector with Dr. Ben Carson rising in the ranks to a tied position at 23% with Donald Trump. Carly Fiorina, at 10%, fills the number three slot with Ted Cruz in fourth place at 9%.

I hope they’re getting the message in Washington DC.

Going to Extremes: EPA Fines Small Rancher 37.5K a Day for Buildinga Stock Pond on His 8 Acre Property

Posted by Tina

We heard about this case in comments last week but it’s back in the news today and it occurred to me that it definitely for an extreme action by the so-called servants of the people in our federal government:

Farmer Andy Johnson hasn’t sent millions of gallons of gold-mine wastewater down any rivers, but he’s facing more than $16 million in fines from the Environmental Protection Agency for running afoul of the Clean Water Act.

His violation? In 2012, Mr. Johnson built a stock pond for his horses and cattle on his 8-acre property in Fort Bridger, Wyoming.

Even though the Clean Water Act exempts stock ponds, and Mr. Johnson had obtained the necessary state permits, the EPA ordered him in January 2014 to restore the area to its original condition or accumulate fines of $37,500 a day. Instead, Mr. Johnson hired a lawyer.

How does the EPA justify such idiocy? What possible harm can a small pond, built to water cattle cause an environmental problem? Well, the fact is…it doesn’t! This is another example of the extreme left’s radical ways. They have taken control of the Democrat Party and, as they always do, have set about bullying citizens from their lofty positions of power.

Environmental extremists have been claiming world wide disaster since the seventies. Doom is always right around the corner. How many people have been harmed over more than four decades through this type of harassment, ridiculous regulations, extra taxes that choke off business, policies that eliminate jobs and do absolutely nothing except line the pockets of radical activists and the already bloated governments in the world. These people are vile blood suckers that produce nothing but misery…and get paid well for it from the fruits of our labors.

Radical leadership leads to tyranny and totalitarianism. Mr Obama and the extremists that serve him (instead of the people) has put us on a fast track toward that miserable dead end. It’s a sad state of affairs when we discover that those we have put in power are our enemies. The candidates for President under the Democrat mantle are all socialists, green sympathizers, and the UN resolutions that threaten our sovereignty and our freedoms.

The stock pond Johnson built is fed from a creek that flows from the Green River, one of the protected “navigable, interstate water of the United States” established by Bill Clinton in cahoots with the UN back in 1997. Using language such as “the emerging international system,” Bill Clinton “enthusiastically described the treaties which are locking the United States into a network of global entanglements: the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Chemical Weapons Convention, “binding international commitments to protect the environment” (i.e,, the Global Warming Treaty), and the NATO Expansion Treaty.” The EPA’s treatment of Mr. Johnson flows from this so-called vision for a “reorganization of the world.”

Conservation is supported by the American people. The people also want reason and common sense to guide our leaders. In future let’s NOT go to extremes!

Big Government’s Next Blow to Small Business

Posted by Tina

Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature. – Benjamin Franklin

Obama’s next intrusion will be meted out by the Labor Relations Board in collusion with Big Union:

The labor board, which is charged with protecting workers’ rights to organize, changed the definition of a crucial employer-employee relationship that had held in some form since the Reagan era of the 1980s.

Now, a company that hires a contractor to staff its facilities may be considered a so-called joint employer of the workers at that facility, even if it does not actively supervise them.
A union representing those workers would be legally entitled to bargain with the parent company, not just the contractor, under federal labor law.

This will essentially nullify the contract between the small business owner franchisee and the sponsoring corporation making it impossible for the business owner to control employee costs. There’s a good chance that this will destroy the franchise business model that has made it possible for so many middle class Americans to improve their lives while creating jobs for those entering the workforce, those who have retired but need a little extra income, and those who lift themselves to a management position in fast food to the point where they can get a better management job with a larger company. (I watched a young gentleman do just that right here in Chico over a 10 year period!)

“Beware the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry.” – Thomas Paine

Americans had better wake up if they expect their children and grandchildren to enjoy living in freedom…freedom supported, NOT DICTATED, by the rule of law. Government intrusion is how our nation loses ground on the Freedom Index scale.

This action by the Labor Board is a corruption of the republic we were promised by our founders

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” — Benjamin Franklin

Minnesota Man Obtains Commercial License to Drive Truck

Posted by Tina

We seem to be overrun by absurdities of late. This story fits the bill but could wind up being deadly serious.

What’s so absurd about a man getting a truckers license? Connect the dots, to borrow a phrase of significance:

Amir Meshal was kicked out his Bloomington mosque after he was caught promoting radical Islam.

Amir Meshal attended a terrorist training camp in Africa.

But that’s not all, folks!

Meshal, a terrorist suspect, was also placed on the Homeland Security “No Fly” list. But since this country is now “America the Tolerant,” who cares?

By the by, his tuition for driving school, 4K, was paid for by taxpayers in the state of Minnesota.

This could be a serious mistake. A lot of explosives could be packed into a big semi…just sayin’.

Going to Extremes: University Suggests Elimination of “He” and “She” in Everyday Speech

Posted by Tina

Talk about going to extremes! Gay rights advisers at the University of Tennessee, “advised staff and students to stop using “he” and “she” – and switch to “xe,” “zir” and “xyr” instead:

The idea is to avoid any implication that mankind is divided into men and women. This is discouraged as “binary” thinking. In the brave new world, gender neutral pronouns are preferred to make the university “welcoming and inclusive” and to prevent feelings of marginalization. I feel marginalized, however, when men can’t recognize women and rules of grammar are destroyed.

Words mean things…at least they should.

First came the definition of marriage. I warned that husband, wife, mother, and father would follow. Now the definition of male and female is challenged by these radical leftist elites of the university. This is insane! The world should not have to change the meanings of words and adjust to make a minority few comfortable…that responsibility lies with them.

I suggest therapy.

Almost Beaten to Death for Not Shooting Black Attacker

detectivebeatenAn Alabama man has been charged with attempted murder after gruesome pictures popped up online showing him pistol-whipping a Birmingham police detective during a routine traffic stop Friday morning.

pistolwhipperAccording to AL.com, the incident started shortly after 11:00 a.m. Friday when the unnamed officer — who was in plain clothes and an unmarked car — stopped 34-year-old Janard Shamar Cunningham. The officer told Cunningham to stay in his car as he waited for backup to arrive on the scene.

Cunningham instead chose to ignore the request and exited his vehicle to angrily confront the detective why he was pulled over!  He attacked the detective and stole the officer’s gun that he used to strike him in the head until he was beaten unconscious.

POA Spokesman Boackle blamed a national climate of poor police-community relations for the officer’s injuries as do I.

The deaths of unarmed black men during confrontations with police — including Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in Staten Island — have sparked massive protests, despite officers being found innocent of any wrong doing.

This irrational climate of hatred toward police officers has made some officers “hesitate” in dangerous situations.   They would rather put themselves at great risk than to give the local black community an excuse to riot and loot.

You know if the detective had shot Cunningham the mainstream media would have portrayed it as another cop shooting an innocent, unarmed black man… again!  Obama would have taken to his podium and the burning and looting of liquor stores would soon  follow.

President Obama is in some degree to blame for creating this climate of hate and the public’s hyper-sensitivity during a police contact.

I truly believe Obama has done an incredible amount of damage to police community relations by taking the side of the accused (now seen as a victim) just because they were black.  That racial bias has set our race relations back by decades and worse, it has indirectly contributed to untold deaths of officers and blacks alike.

Obama has yet to come out and speak the truth about police shooting statistics of blacks and put an end to this false narrative.  He has had ample opportunity to hold blacks accountable for their over-representation in black on black homicides, black on white crimes and other violence, but he has sidestepped dealing with this reality.

This is why the false narrative about trigger happy cops continues and why trigger happy blacks are nudged just enough to commit murder.   FACT: Cops killing blacks is not a national problem that requires racial sensitivity training or overhauling the criminal justice system as Obama has suggested.   All this anti-cop hype is based on a few isolated incidents of cops behaving badly.   What gets me is that tens of thousands of blacks can behave badly, doing murders, rapes, drugs, robbery, child abuse, and they get a pass by the media and the rest of the black community.   That’s not right!

If we had a real President and not an enabler we wouldn’t have such an outrageous crime problem and the surge in killing of police officers.

Obama has allowed the big liberal lie…this stupid false narrative to take root!  Yes, he did it!  His failure to stand up and tell the truth has exacerbated degrading race relations.  Overall we see that he and his “Black Lives Matter” cohorts have created an atmosphere where false victimization replaces truth and justice.  Until the truth comes out and we have real leadership and not racist pandering at the top, there will be NO JUSTICE!

In today’s case, the plainclothes Birmingham detective was legitimately investigating a string of burglaries when he stopped Cunningham’s GMC Yukon for probable cause.   He was doing the job he was paid to do.  He had done nothing wrong and certainly nothing to warrant the violent reaction by Cunningham.  But, Cunningham had a chip on his shoulder and all the excuses by liberal apologists for black criminal behavior helped put it there and so did the worst liberal of all…Barack Obama.

Here’s another pathetic part of this terrible incident.  Pictures of the unconscious, bloodied officer surfaced on social media shortly after the brutal confrontation.  Instead of rendering aid to the fallen officer a number of bystanders were too busy taking pictures and posting them to Face Book.  This has police officers frustrated and angry.  The irony is many of the  people currently screaming epithets at police will be among the first to call them for help.

Here’s some of the less coarse comments circulating on Twitter…

“Pistol pimped his face n um chillen now,” Twitter user @TriggaMane666 posted with a picture of the wounded officer.

“Pistol whipped his ass to sleep,” a Facebook user wrote before deleting a post showing the officer face down on the sidewalk.

Cunningham has a record for violence and a prior conviction for assault.  This time I hope that he’s going to jail for a long, long, time.  He’s too violent to be remain in society IMHO.

President Obama – worst president ever.

Going to Extremes: Part III Facts About Blacks and Cops

Total number of arrests in 2012 for all races:

  • 9,340,000 – 2,460,000 were black Americans.
  • For the past 10 years officer involved shootings number about 340 annually and of those, about 31% are black males.
  • Of the 2.5 million annual arrests for blacks (and blacks are greatly over represented) , its estimated that only about 110 blacks will be shot and killed.  That means there are 2.5 million annual arrests where the police don’t shoot black criminals.

Statistically it would be ideal if this 110 number were zero, however the number of police shootings of black offenders is minuscule compared to the arrest rate and black on black homicides.  3 or less homicides on average per year are due to criminal behavior by police.

Sources of statistics – FBI and Dept. Justice.

Special note:

Blacks comprise about 12.61% of the total population of the United States, but commit about 49% of the murders, mostly against other Blacks.

In 2012 blacks committed 49.4% of murders,  32.5% of rapes, 54.9% of robberies, 34.1% of aggravated assaults, 39.9% of weapons charges, 42.8% of commercialized vice, 31.2% of drug violations, and 31.4% of offenses against family and children.

In the under 18 years of age category, Blacks committed 50.8% of all homicides and 68.6 of all robberies.  Black suspects represent 51.5% of all violent crime.

Between 1980 and 2008, young adult black males had the highest homicide offending rate compared to offenders in other racial and sex categories. U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics Nov. 2011 NCJ-236018

Going to Extremes: Part II Follow Up Story

by Jack

According to the FBI there have been over 20,000 officers killed in the line of duty since the USA began tracking their statistics.  However, the deliberate violent attacks on police is rising and several patterns are obvious….the race of the shooter and the randomness of the attack.

Last year on Obama’s watch the murder of police officers spiked by 89%, and about 90% of them were cold blooded murders by a black male offender.   Was this a sheer coincidence, no politics or black activism/racism involved?  I think not.

Obama has inserted himself into too many situations that were completely unwarranted and he made assumptions of police wrong-doing even before the facts were known.  This reckless action has only served to inflame racial tensions and give blacks that already had  a twisted hatred for police just the excuse they needed to kill.

The list of the fallen s growing almost every day in 2015:

Here are but a few…

DEPUTY DARREN GOFORTH  A man “believed to be the alleged gunman” (black male) in the killing of a uniformed Houston-area sheriff’s deputy was in custody and being questioned Saturday morning.

The execution of the deputy came just days after black radicals went on an internet radio show hosted from Texas and called for the lynching of white people and the killing of cops to “turn the tide” against blacks being killed by cops. Breitbart Texas reported on Friday morning the details of the radio show and the comments that were made.

One black man spoke up saying they needed to kill “cops that are killing us. The other black male on the show said, “That will be the best method right there.”

OFFICERS TATE AND DEEN

Tate graduated from the police academy last year and jumped right into his new job. The 24-year-old was backing up fellow Officer Benjamin Deen during a traffic stop in May in Hattiesburg when both were fatally shot.  4 black males and one black female were arrested.

His partner, Erik Jansen, survived.

OFFICER ROBERT WILSON
