116 rallies across America this weekend to support Ferguson cop

Darren Wilson rally

Leo Hohmann reports for WND that as many as 116 mass rallies are scheduled  in cities and communities across the country this weekend in support of several causes, including Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

The rallies began yesterday, in support of:

  • Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson: that he’s being unfairly portrayed as a cold-blooded killer in the national media.
  • U.S. Marine Andrew Tahmooressi who is still languishing in a Mexican jail because he accidentally crossed the border with guns for which he has a U.S. permit.
  • U.S. Border Patrol agents who have come under fire from Mexican drug cartels while trying to police the southern border.

Overpasses for America and Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) are leading a broad coalition of groups participating in the rallies, which they see as a “warm-up” for even larger protests scheduled for Oct. 24-25 against illegal immigration if Obama unilaterally declares amnesty, which he has already telegraphed.

ALIPAC president William Gheen said that if Obama follows through with threats to declare amnesty for a large percentage of the roughly 25 million to 35 million illegals now in the country, his organization is prepared to “take the next step,” beyond holding protest signs on highway overpasses. “We may have to escalate our peaceful activism beyond overpasses and begin doing large scale sit-ins of whatever processing facilities they try to set up for the illegals. What Obama is doing and telegraphing he is going to do is a complete violation of our existing laws, our Constitution and our republic.”

James Neighbors, founder of Overpasses for America, said he senses that grassroots activism is growing in America:

“You get the train moving and people jump on, so whatever it takes. We jumped on the border protests July 18-19 and that was the first time multiple groups had come together, and that was sort of our alpha test. We had some bumps and potholes along the way, but we ended up pulling it off with over 320 groups. We understand Obama is the poster child for the problem but he is not the problem. He’s just the front man for the whole thing. You can almost look at Obama as the crowning achievement of the corruption going on in D.C. right now. He’s easily the most corrupt president we’ve ever had, but we like to bring attention to all of the problems that are a result of that agenda, and some of those we’ll be addressing this weekend [one of which is the “misperception” that all police are out to kill unarmed black teens.]

I honestly think what we’re seeing now is an example of neo-feudalism. If you look at the middle ages, it was that 1 percent of elites that seized control of everything. It’s a common behavior throughout history, and I think we’re just seeing another example of it in the 21st century. If you look at it, we have corporate lobbyists that go to Congress, and they go to every level of government, they lobby, they donate to campaigns and they get what they want. We’re now $18 trillion in debt. And at some point, we will have to repay that. If the U.S. government goes bankrupt, what will the U.S. government do if corporations say, ‘OK, we’ll pay off your debt, but guess what, we want provision?’”

Neighbors said few government programs have fulfilled their intended purpose, and most create a culture of dependency. “The vast majority of them have just simply failed. They’re ineffective. They’re over cost, and yet the government tries to get involved in every aspect of our lives. It’s almost as if the United States doesn’t matter to them. We’ve got 35 million illegal aliens in our country now. They tout 11 million but that’s a 10-year-old number.”

Neighbors believes that the collapsing of the U.S.-Mexico border is a purposeful act meant to usher in the North American Union, unifying the U.S., Mexico and Canada and modeled after the European Union across the Atlantic. “You have to wonder if that’s their agenda. I can’t remember hearing anything about it in the mainstream media, not a peep. The mainstream media are now controlled by six mega corporations, and because of that we no longer have real and fair journalistic reporting. That’s why this doesn’t get talked about. If it weren’t for the alternative media, thanks to the Internet, journalism would be dead.

Neighbors believes the Obama administration has declared war on hard-working middle-class Americans, tearing away at jobs by fostering open borders and disastrous trade agreements. “With Obama, I don’t know if he’s weak or just weakening us. We need a president who understands what this country is about, what our culture is.”

As of 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Texas already had 25 communities signed up to participate in the rallies this weekend.

Gheen said all racially inclusive groups are invited to join the growing coalition: “We are looking for more peaceful and racially inclusive organizations willing to unify with all Americans in opposition to illegal immigration.”

Any leader of an organization wishing to add their group to the coalition may email Gheen at WilliamG@alipac.us.

Gosh, do you think there’ll be riots and looting at any of the 116 rallies? [Sarc/]

Meanwhile, here’s the latest on Ferguson.

Last Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014, CNN broadcast a purported audio of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, with sounds of 11 gunshots. The audio led almost every hour and was the biggest story of the day on CNN.

CNN did that without verifying the authenticity of the audio.

The next day, however, CNN was no longer crowing and began retreating from the audio, after two law enforcement experts believe the audio to be a hoax.

John Nolte of Breitbart points out that this is the second time CNN has been irresponsible with audio and, in so doing, smeared two men’s reputation. Using unintelligible audio of George Zimmerman’s 911 call, CNN falsely claimed Zimmerman had described Trayvon Martin as a “fucking coon” before fatally shooting the teenager. Even after it was proven Zimmerman didn’t use the racial slur (Zimmerman said it was “fucking cold” that night), CNN continued to lie to its audience, claiming Zimmerman had. 

No wonder CNN is doing so poorly in viewer numbers that it’s trying to reduce its staff with buyoffs and layoffs. (See DCG’s post on this here.)

Judicial Watch: Feds say imminent terrorist attack on US-Mexico border

Judicial Watch is a nonpartisan citizen’s watchdog based in Washington, D.C.

JW’s president Tom Fitton just sent out the email below and urges us to disseminate this far and wide.

Ciudad Juarez

Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.
The disturbing inside intelligence comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S. intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said this week [yesterday] during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”
The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”
These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy.
Sincerely,
Tom Fitton
President

Former CIA agent and Obama critic Jim Garrow arrested in Canada

The long arm of President Ebola extends all the way across our northern border into Canada.

Dr. Jim Garrow is the Christian founder and executive director of The Bethune Institute, a charitable organization dedicated to advance education in China via teaching English, giving free books to poor Chinese, and medical scholarships. Through its branch organization, The Pink Pagoda, the institute also rescues baby girls from infanticide  in China, and finds homes for the unwanted girls. Dr. Garrow is credited for saving the lives of over 50,000 Chinese girls for which he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Last year, Garrow told the world (via Alex Jones’ radio, Glenn Beck, and other conservative media) that Obama’s U.S. military was purging top brass using a “litmus test” of sorts. High-ranking military officials were being asked “Would you fire on an American citizen?,” and if one answered no, you would be fired.

A week after his whistle-blowing, on the Oct. 6 Now the End Begins Internet radio program, Garrow claimed that he had been a covert CIA agent but was fired by none other than Obama himself because of his disclosure.

Then Garrow made another bombshell of an announcement — that he knows Obama had ordered the hits that killed Tom Clancy and Andrew Breitbart. (Read more here.)

Although Garrow lives in Ontario, Canada, that hasn’t stopped Obama’s goons from retaliating.

Jim GarrowDr. Jim Garrow

Agenda 21 Radio reports that on Sunday, Aug. 24, 2014, Dr. Jim Garrow, the former CIA agent of 45 years, was arrested at his home in Ontario, Canada.

In a message to Agenda 21 Radio Dr. Garrow stated:

“When I arrived home from the Infiltration Tour I unloaded my camper trailer and discovered a pistol in a Ruger bag with ammunition and a gun lock. I called my Son in Law Chris Neilsen who is a cop and he came over and had a look at it. He told me that it is a restricted weapon like one he had to turn in. I asked what they are worth on the black market and he told me an amount that floored me. He didn’t ask me where it came from oddly enough. My wife and I went for a ride on our Goldwing and when we got back the cops arrived and arrested me. They took my passport and kept me in jail for 5 hours. I have 4 charges against me. This was all a set up.

When contacted by Agenda 21 Radio Dr. Garrow stated that the gun did not belong to him and it was an obvious ‘plant’.

This is what Garrow wrote on his Facebook page:

Valerie and Bathhouse Barry must have had a great laugh today. I was greeted by my local police department who had been informed that I was in possession of illegal firearms. As you remember I just returned from my eastern swing of the “Infiltration Tour”. Guess what was in my camper? A a snub nosed pistol considered to be a restricted weapon in Canada. I showed it to my son in law and low and behold he turned it and me in to the local police. I now know how the Nazis got collaborator jews like George Soros to turn in his own people. 4 different charges have been filed against me and I spent the last 5 hours locked in a jail cell. I am now restricted to staying in my Province, no more Infiltration Tour. Folks may remember that I zoomed home as a result of my daughters serious concussion (she is gradually showing some improvement) and it was her husband who turned me in to the local police. He never asked me how I got the gun that I showed him. I had made a comment about them being valuable on the black market but he showed no interest in learning where I had found it. Rather than ask questions he took the gun to the local police and had me arrested and charged. Little did he or whoever slipped it into my camper know that they were doing Gods bidding.

But let us look at this from the spiritual perspective. Paul went to jail charged falsely with treason and he counted it “all joy”. He encouraged us to be joyful in affliction. Staring at the wall in my cell and praising God took on a whole depth of meaning for me this evening and I must admit that my spirit soared. I understand Paul and what he was saying, I get it. I am falling asleep as I write this but am praising the Lord for his guiding hand in it all.

On Aug. 27, Garrow reported on his Facebook about more messing, this time by Skype:

I learned today that folks have not been able to call me using skype. It turns out that skype arbitrarily and without my permission changed my skype call number from drjgarrow to jim garrow. I was not notified of the change and of course now all my contacts do not know how to get hold of me through skype.

I would appreciate it if folks would continue to try to get me on drjgarrow rather than what I had not chosen jim garrow. I have used drjgarrow on skype and as my email address for decades. Not a nice thing to have lost all those contacts.

I hope Dr. Garrow isn’t planning on undergoing any surgery. (See Trail Dust’s post on Joan Rivers, “Joan Out?“)

If You’re Going To Drink, Don’t Drive. A PSA From FOTM.

cartoon_car_2

With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience
with my family & friends about drinking and driving. As you may know some
of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to
time on the way home after a “social session” out with friends.

Well, three days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had
several cocktails, followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I
still had the sense to know that I may be over the limit. That’s when I
did something that I’ve never done before .. I took a cab home!

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it
was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.
This was a real relief and surprise because I had never driven a cab
before.

I don’t even know where I got it, and now that it’s in my garage I don’t know what to do with it!!!

France and multiculturalism: One in Six French People Say They Support Isis Caliphate

beheading3

IBTimes: Almost a sixth of the French population (16%) have a favourable disposition towards the terror group Isis (now known as the Islamic State), according to a new poll.

The survey, conducted by ICM Research, asked people across the western European countries of Germany, UK and France whether their view of IS was favourable or unfavourable.

The participants were asked: “From what you know, please, tell me if you have a very favourable, somewhat favourable, somewhat unfavourable or very unfavourable opinion of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant otherwise known as Isis?”

A breakdown of the age groups participating in the poll revealed that the younger the respondent, the more likely they were to have a favourable view of IS.

Twenty percent of French people between the ages of 35 and 44 had a favourable opinion of IS while 22% of 25-34 year-olds asked were also favourable to the group.

The highest opinion of the group came in the youngest age group, the 18-24 year-olds.

France, a country with a population of 66 million, has a Muslim community of 4.7 million (as of 2010) and a large number of this community have emigrated from North Africa.

However, the poll was commissioned on behalf of Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya, likely to take a swipe at the western countries in question.

The Islamic State and its march through Syria and Iraq have continued to attract worldwide media attention following the shocking video of US journalist James Foley’s murder.

james_foley

The group’s aims are to bring every corner of the world under their radical Islamic ideology and they have already declared a “Caliphate” straddling the Syrian-Iraqi border.

France has witnessed a growing threat of terrorism in recent years as hundreds of young French Muslims are believed to have flocked abroad to fight for jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq, with the potential to return home as radicalised members of society.

For the ICM poll’s data collection, the company interviewed 1,006 French nationals by telephone between 11-21 July 2014. The poll had a margin of error of 1.5-3%.  A representative for ICM was unavailable to answer IBTimes UK’s questions about methods of participant and location selection.

57 Cops Murdered by “Unarmed” Criminals: From Stephen Frank

From Stephen Frank:

We are told a lot about Ferguson—how an unarmed man was shot by a police officer. The media called him “unarmed”. Since 2000 57 cops nationwide were shot to death by “unarmed” criminals. This happens when the criminal takes a gun from the cop and uses it to kill. Yet, the Times of any variety, the Post, etc. talk about a cop in Ferguson killing an “unarmed” man—without ANY facts.

The aftermath of police encounters with “unarmed” individuals — 57 murders

“While statistics for officers killed with their own weapons are hard to find, we know from the FBI and http://www.odmp.org that between 2000-10, at least51 officers were killed by suspects who used the officer’s own gun. Four officers were killed in 2011, one officer in 2013. While the data for 2014 is not final, we know that Johnson City (New York) Police Officer David Smith was murdered this past March with his own weapon.

Thus asking, “What justification do the police have for killing an unarmed suspect?” and answering “none” as former Police Chief Joseph McNamara did in this blog is pointless.”

57 Cops Killed by “UNARMED” Criminals

By LA Police Protective League, Board of Directors 08/26/2014

Repeated descriptions of a suspect as “unarmed” when shot by a police officer does not, contrary to the belief of the New York Times and others who use the term without further describing the facts of the encounter, determine if the force used by an officer was lawful or reasonable. Labeling the suspect as “unarmed” does not begin to answer the question of the danger they posed in each instance where deadly force was used.

According to the FBI’s online database of officers feloniously killed, as well as the Officer Down Memorial Page, since 2000, there have been at least 57 occurrences where the suspects have taken officers’ weapons and murdered the police officer with it. Fifty-seven times, loved ones of those officers heard the awful knock on their front door, notifying them that their husband, wife, father, mother, son or daughter would never be coming home again. Fifty-seven times, the threat that some loudly continue to claim does not exist, ended with fatal results.

While statistics for officers killed with their own weapons are hard to find, we know from the FBI andwww.odmp.org that between 2000-10, at least 51 officers were killed by suspects who used the officer’s own gun. Four officers were killed in 2011, one officer in 2013. While the data for 2014 is not final, we know that Johnson City (New York) Police Officer David Smith was murdered this past March with his own weapon.

Thus asking, “What justification do the police have for killing an unarmed suspect?” and answering “none” as former Police Chief Joseph McNamara did in this blog is pointless. Twenty-five years ago, in the case ofGraham v. Connor, the United States Supreme Court set forth the legal standard for evaluating a use of force. The U.S. Supreme Court wrote an officer’s action is judged in light of the facts and circumstances confronting them, without regard to their underlying intent or motivation. Crucially, the “reasonableness” of a particular use of force must be judged from the “perspective of a reasonable officer on the scene.” The U.S. Supreme Court recognized that the “calculus of reasonableness must embody allowance for the fact that police officers are often forced to make split-second judgments—in circumstances that are tense, uncertain, and rapidly evolving—about the amount of force that is necessary in a particular situation.”

The reality is that police officers need and wear guns. Those firearms can be taken by “unarmed” suspects and turned against the officer. Many armchair experts across the country sit around their air-conditioned conference rooms, pondering their views on how police officers could kill an “unarmed suspect” and the non-existent threat they pose to officers. We must ask, what did they use to as the factual basis for their conclusions? Is it from fictional police dramas on TV? Gut instinct?

We won’t be so crass as to suggest that we give a gun to the columnists and editorial writers who equate “unarmed” with “not dangerous,” and then tell them that although we are unarmed, we are going to try to take that gun from them. If successful, we will use the gun to shoot them. While we are confident this scenario might slightly affect their mindset on “unarmed” suspects, the tragic reality is that scenario has happened at least 57 times in 14 years.

Until all of the facts surrounding the use of force by any officer are known, the urge to decide whether the use of deadly force was reasonable and lawful is simply a “rush to judgment”—no matter how many times the suspect is referred to as “unarmed.”

If Global Warming Exists Why Would They Have To Cheat…Yet Again

This time folks it seems like they have caught the Australian Bureau of Meteorology cheating. Hmm, would that mean the whole Gov was in on it?         ~Steve~

PS, but that’s not stopping Skippy. This is a link from Drudge.

Obama Pursuing Climate Accord in Lieu of Treaty

———————————————————————————————

25 Aug 2014

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show “global warming” where none actually exists.

At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was “homogenized” (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century.

At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist’s pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia’s hottest year on record. This prompted Australia’s alarmist-in-chief Tim Flannery – an English literature graduate who later went on to earn his scientific credentials with a PhD in palaeontology, digging up ancient kangaroo bones – to observe that global warming in Australia was “like climate change on steroids.”

But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies.

Though the Bureau of Meteorology has insisted its data adjustments are “robust”, it has been unable to come up with a credible explanation as to why it translated real-world data showing a cooling trend into homogenized data showing a warming trend.

She wrote:

“Repetition is a propaganda technique. The deletion of information from records, and the use of exaggeration and half-truths, are �others. The Bureau of Meteorology uses all these techniques, while wilfully ignoring evidence that contradicts its own propaganda.’’

This is a global problem. Earlier this year, Breitbart reported that similarly dishonest adjustments had been made to temperature records by NASA and NOAA. Similarly implicated are the UK temperature records of the Met Office Hadley Centre and at Phil “Climategate” Jones’s disgraced Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.
