A Sheriff speaks on Baltimore’s rioting and I’m paraphrasing what I heard last night: “Here’s what has to happen, you have to eradicate the American ghetto. This means you have to shrink the size of the underclass. We have a permanent underclass becoming too comfortable with ghetto-life and we need to get them out of their comfort zone. We must go after modern liberalism. Modern liberalism is conduct without borders and it deflects personal accountability. It celebrates black under-achievement and it makes excuses for this abhorrent behavior that we’re now seeing in many of these (black) neighborhoods. It blames others for the underclass continually making bad lifestyle choices. I would start by shaming the bad behaviors, not celebrating them or excusing them. Make it uncomfortable and you will see the underclass behaviors start to shrink.” Sheriff David Clarke (see pic on left)
(Clark recently said that a bronze plaque memorializing Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. was a disgrace.)
It seems modern liberalism has a split personality, for example, its okay to smoke dope, but you shouldn’t be allowed to drink a 32 oz. soda? The modern liberal wants the freedom to burn the flag or protest to the point of destructive behavior, but they don’t want to bear of any of the responsibility for the cost of that freedom, they treat it like an entitlement.
Liberals are full of excuses, but short of solutions. Everything they’ve done for the last 50 years has been a setup for some sort of societal disaster and now we’re reaping what they have sown, key among this harvest are the riots in American cities. Ironically, they take zero responsibility for any of this and instead resort to blaming others, like the cops in Ferguson, Baltimore or Cambridge for examples.
The cops were never the root cause of the rioting in Baltimore or anywhere else. They may have been a symptom of a great problem, but they were not [the] problem. However, liberals are placing the blame entirely on the police (everywhere) at this time and that is so unfair its ludicrous.
So, what was the natural reaction of the Baltimore police being stereotyped as a bunch of racist, jackbooted thugs and told to back off, respond only to calls for service? Baltimore’s crime has instantly surged. Last weekend 29 people were wounded, 9 more were shot dead and not by cops, but by black on black crime. The monthly death toll in this one city…a record 35 dead. That is higher than among our soldiers fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan in the last 3 months. This is what happens when police are not allowed to do their jobs because of liberals who know nothing about law enforcement intervene. Liberals are the first to forget how thin this blue line really is. Liberals have contributed to far more deaths among poor blacks than any of the police officers they condemn.
You’ve got about 859,000 police officers in the USA, that means 859,000 unique personalities, common sense says that some of those people don’t belong in law enforcement, they don’t have what it takes and sooner or later they are bound to screw up. But, as statistics will prove, their numbers are extremely small, thanks in no small measure to the great lengths police agencies go to test and background applicants. However, modern liberalism isn’t interested in statistics when it doesn’t support their narrative.
Modern liberalism goes to great lengths to excuse pervasive criminal behavior in the ghetto, yet they are all over that miniscule percentage of criminal behavior found in law enforcement. Why? Modern liberalism is quick to indict the cop and assign blame, yet frequently rallies behind the criminal, crying “innocent till proven guilty!” or excusing the crime altogether because the defendant is just another “victim” of the system.
United we stand – divided we fall: As a result of this modern liberalism, our nation is now a dangerously fractured society. We are thoroughly divided against each other, black verses white, rich verses poor, and conservatives against liberals. It seem the destructive objectives of the communists during the cold war has finally taken hold, but through another form of politics called modern liberalism.
The emphasis from a “war on crime” or a “war on drugs” has shifted to a war on cops, a war on the wealthy, a war on business and a war on law abiding gun-owners. In the process, our Constitution has been regularly assaulted with unconstitutional legislation from the left. This is exemplified by the example set in the White House. President Obama claims to be a great Constitutional expert, yet he has been ruled against 13 times by the federal court that keeps telling him he’s exceeding his authority. Some leadership, we might as well have elected the mayor of Baltimore to president.
The latest from Fred—
I don’t think anyone (but your typical left wing liberal lunatic) can blame the Baltimore police from backing off and reducing patrols.
In my humble opinion, they should let these monsters kill each other until the communities with high crime rates start looking at themselves, taking responsibility, and start asking for help instead of rioting and bashing the police.
I read 2 sentences so far, again I am a Californian from Grass Valley in Baltimore, why are you trying to make a case from afar?
I do believe Baltimore was a thriving manufacturing City with an Eastern Port. I do believe Bethlehem Steel was huge among other industries. Now we get our steel from a communist country that had cheap labor and wall street got hold of the country.
So when do we argue about how to bring America Back?
When are you going to stop playing politics and have a conversation?
This here person in 3 and 4 just gets ya to thinkin’ what some people are a sayin’ is about as useful as the curl in a pigs tail.
Re #4: ROTFLMAO at Dewey’s idiotic rebuke. Pure, unadulterated hypocrisy.
That bronze plaque memorializing Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. is a disgrace. Anyone planning to move to Ferguson soon?

Most Democrats Think Illegal Immigrants Should Vote
The day that illegal immigrants are allowed to vote is the day the revolution starts.
Re #5 Southern Comfort : “This here person in 3 and 4 just gets ya to thinkin’ what some people are a sayin’ is about as useful as the curl in a pigs tail.”
We don’t take to kindly in the Guevara household to folks disrespecting pigs like that. Some pig breeds have naturally curly tails while other breeds simply do not. But curly or not, pigs are intelleegent and tasty critters and none are like Dewey.
Why do pigs have curly tails?
Because they are born in the spring.
What do you use to treat a rash on a pig?
What do you call it when you cross a dinosaur and a pig?
What do you get when you cross a liberal and a pig?
Won’t happen — there are some things even a pig won’t do.
What do you call a pig with laryngitis?
Why should you never tell a pig a secret?
Because they love to squeal.
Off topic, but hot news:
Jack there will never be a day when Americans allow an illegal immigrant to vote. That will remain illegal. Hence the word Illegal.
There are people working up to 3 jobs in those Ghettos because there is no good full time jobs. Again one has to realize what is going on.
When a man can not find work they create work. They find a way to provide for their family legal or illegal.
Again They sent their jobs overseas. Baltimore is full of empty manufacturing plants. It was a hub.
Typical behavior, destroy a town, give China our jobs then persecute the poor left behind.
When you buy things where are they made? How much in your home says proudly made in USA?
They gave our economy to China. Old American Brands are not American anymore. Buy USA, rebrand America and Tell Obama to stick his TPP where the sun don’t shine.
Be part of the solution.
And Jack the revolution has started. The people are rising all around the world. In order to see it one has to look. I am rising doing the work as we speak!
All US media serves the citizens united political machine.
When it takes Billions to get into the White House you can be assured Those Donors call in their markers. Does not matter which party. Obama is paying his now.
We live in a fascist state not a democracy.
#10 J. Soden – Great news. Let’s hope the Clintons are held accountable for once, besides Bill’s impeachment.
Jack hate to be the barrier of bad news, but illegals are already voting and deciding our election results.
Are Illegal Aliens Deciding Elections? The Answer May Surprise You…
“In a stunning piece today by the Washington Post, a study revealed that non-U.S. citizens are deciding American elections in recent years.
It is stated that in the last two election cycles, upwards of six-plus percent of illegal immigrants actually voted. Up to fourteen percent were actually registered to vote. There are approximately twelve million illegal aliens in the United States; this is a huge number.
The paper goes on to say:
Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.
The United States of America is now being ruled by gangsters. Our laws are being broken. Our elections are being stolen to install a socialist system of government.
From the Washington Post.
Could non-citizens decide the November election?:
“Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? Some argue that incidents of voting by non-citizens are so rare as to be inconsequential, with efforts to block fraud a screen for an agenda to prevent poor and minority voters from exercising the franchise, while others define such incidents as a threat to democracy itself. Both sides depend more heavily on anecdotes than data.
In a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies, we bring real data from big social science survey datasets to bear on the question of whether, to what extent, and for whom non-citizens vote in U.S. elections. Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races.
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.
Finally, extrapolation to specific state-level or district-level election outcomes is fraught with substantial uncertainty. It is obviously possible that non-citizens in California are more likely to vote than non-citizens in North Carolina, or vice versa. Thus, we are much more confident that non-citizen votes mattered for the Minnesota Senate race (a turnout of little more than one-tenth of our adjusted estimate is all that would be required) than that non-citizen votes changed the outcome in North Carolina.”
According to the below survey a majority (53%) of Dems believe illegals should be allowed to vote. But, a majority (60%) of all likely voters believe they shouldn’t.
Most Democrats Think Illegal Immigrants Should Vote:
“Are voters ready to let illegal immigrants vote? A sizable number, including most Democrats, are.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that one-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (35%) now believes that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes. Sixty percent (60%) disagree, while five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.
