Imagine the outcry if a white republican had said this.
Imagine the outcry if a white republican had said this.
Finally, a public figure is openly saying what so many of us have been thinking.
A week ago, in a discussion on Twitter on the despicable tactics deployed by the Left, Marjus Persson @notch, the 39-year-old Swedish self-made billionaire who created the Minecraft video game, tweeted his 3.7 million followers (h/t Infowars):
I know people don’t like it when I point this out, but the left has been taken over by evil.
And I mean that literally.

The latest example of the evil Left is a special-ed teacher in Rosemount, Minnesota who, as “Spooky Spam” on Twitter, urged that Justice Brett Kavanaugh be killed:
“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”
As reported by LifeNews.com, the teacher, an instructor at the Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center, quickly deleted her tweet and even her Twitter account. But netizens captured her tweet and reported her to the FBI and U.S. Secret Service. The FBI in Minneapolis confirmed they are aware of her tweet (see below).
Intermediate School District 917, based in Rosemount, provides services to special education students in nine public school districts across the southeast metro area. The Alliance Education Center serves students ages 5 to 21 who have autism spectrum disorders, developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders and other disabilities.
The (Minnesota) StarTribune refuses to name the teacher “because she has not been charged with a crime.” Calls to a phone number listed for the teacher were not immediately returned.
On Oct. 8, two days after the homicidal tweet, in a statement on the school district’s website, ISD 917 Superintendent Mark Zuzek said that “Pursuant with the (Minnesota) Data Practices Act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter,” but that the teacher did not make the post on Twitter while at school, and that she had been placed on paid administrative leave “pending the outcome of the investigation.”
The next day, StarTribune reported that the teacher had resigned.
Instead of chastising this teacher and the Democrat Party’s rank and file, leaders of the Party of Evil are openly calling for violence.
On Sunday, Oct. 7, speaking to a crowd of campaign volunteers at a rally in support of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Stockbridge, Georgia, former Attorney General Eric Holder flatly rejected Michelle Obama’s call for civility. Holder instead urged Democrats to use violence against their political opponents:
“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are…. Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick ’em.”
Responding to Holder’s call to violence, the crowd cheered and chanted “Fight!”.
Two days later, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in an interview with Fake News CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Hillary Clinton, who during the 2016 presidential election called millions of Americans over whom she meant to rule “deplorables”, said:
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Below is CNN’s tweet about the interview:

Here’s the link to the YouTube video of the interview, if you can stomach hearing Hillary’s grating voice and seeing her ever so self-satisfied face. It is noteworthy that the comments on YouTube are overwhelmingly anti-Hillary.
That same day, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) — who was attacked and beaten by a Democrat neighbor last Fall, and chased and verbally harassed by anti-Kavanaugh activists at Washington’s Reagan National Airport just last week — said what many of us have thought. He told a Kentucky radio show that heated political rhetoric has the potential to turn deadly:
“I fear that there’s going to be an assassination. I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation … they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence.“
Senator Paul Paul was not being hyperbolic. He was at the congressional baseball practice last summer when a Bernie Sanders supporter, James T. Hodgkinson, opened fire, hitting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La) in the hip and injuring two Capitol police officers and an aide.
Paul’s wife, Kelley, revealed in a Breitbart interview on Friday that she sleeps with a “loaded gun by my bed,” has updated their home’s security system and has “deadbolts all around my house.” Kelley also wrote an op-ed published by CNN in which she called on Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) to tone down his rhetoric. In June, Booker told his supporters “get up in the face of congresspeople.”

“Fast and Furious” is a Department of Justice ATF program ostensibly to track Mexican cartels by purposely allowing licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping to track the guns to Mexican drug cartel leaders and arrest them.
In other words, while the Obama is bent on imposing gun control on Americans, his administration has been running guns to Mexican criminals.
Fast and Furious took the life of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry when, on December 14, 2010, he was shot while attempting to arrest five individuals in Nogales, Arizona. Two of the guns found at the scene were linked to Fast and Furious.
When the scandalous program was uncovered, Americans thought that was the end to Fast and Furious. But not only is it continuing, the arms “transfers” have gone global, specifically to Muslim jihadists in the Middle East, according to Lt. Col. Matt Smithy-Meck, a retired U.S. Marine who is working on behalf of Terry’s family.
Adan Salazar reports for InfoWars that in an interview with Alex Jones on March 29, 2016, Lt. Col. Matt Smith-Meck revealed the following:
(1) Fast and Furious actually transferred more weapons than initially suspected, “in the magnitude of 4,700”. Smith-Meck said: “Not only is it guns and rifles, but also grenades, grenade launchers, military grade night vision goggles, black special forces tactical uniforms.”
(2) Fast and Furious involved not just guns, but also military equipment and installations. Smith-Meck said: “I was approached by a Col. Taylor – told me he was from OSI, Office of Special Investigations and that the military was aware of possible military installation and equipment involvement with Fast and Furious.”
(3) Arms transfers into Mexico are ongoing to this day.
(4) Those weapons may then be resold to international networks outside Mexico — “part of a much larger international gun running operation” — specifically Morocco and Algiers in the Middle East. Mexican traffickers were already on record meeting with foreign purchasers in 2010, and weapons linked to the operation later showed up in Morocco. Smith-Meck said that on October 16, 2010, the commander of Morocco’s internal security forces (DST) “reported to his supervisors that Fast and Furious weapons were in the kingdom of Morocco en route to arm the rebels in Algeria.”
(5) According to his sources, Smith-Meck predicts yet another arms transfer to Mexico will occur towards the middle of May, which may then be exported to the Middle East: “We’ve got a mid-May of this year time frame where another large shipment is scheduled to go across from basically Arizona into Mexico, and we’re trying to make sure that does not occur.” Smith-Meck said he had forwarded the information on to Rep. Trey Gowdy.
(6) Suspecting that Agent Terry might have been murdered for digging too deep into Fast and Furious, Lt. Smith-Meck said he himself was harassed and threatened. On the night of March 22, 2015, while he was walking his dog at around 10 p.m., someone approached him, knocked him down, kicked him in his lower back and told him, “You obviously aren’t getting the message. Keep your F’ing mouth shut.”
Smith-Meck filed a police report about the incident and declares he will continue searching for the truth of Brian Terry’s death and is asking for Congress’ help to find answers.
In a more recent InfoWars interview on May 16 with Lt. Col. Matt Smith-Meck, Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, and Kent Terry, it is claimed that a major Fast & Furious arms shipment to ISIS will take place in 2 weeks. Plumlee is a former CIA contract pilot who flew drugs and arms for the CIA; he says the State Department and the Clinton Foundation are also involved in the international gun-running. Terry is the brother of slain Border Agent Brian Terry.

And the State Run Media is doing their best to protect Obama and Holder. According to Newsbusters, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Univision censored El Chapo weapon being linked to Fast and Furious during their Wednesday night broadcasts. Shocker, not.
Via NY Post: One of the guns that Mexican officials say was found at the hideout of drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera has been found to be associated with Fast and Furious, a failed “gun-walking” operation, according to the Justice Department.
The department said in a letter to members of Congress that a .50-caliber rifle that Mexican officials sent for tracing after Guzman’s arrest in January has been connected to Fast and Furious.
Officials say the weapon was one of 19 firearms that Mexican authorities said were recovered from the hideout and was the only one determined to be associated with the botched sting operation, in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed gun runners to buy weapons in hopes of tracking them and disrupting gun smuggling rungs.
The rifle was bought in July 2010 in a straw purchase by someone not known to ATF at the time. The buyer was later identified and came under investigation but was never indicted. The weapon is not known to be associated with any other crime, the Justice Department says.
Wayne Allyn Root hits one out of the ballpark, again.
by Wayne Allyn Root · July 7, 2015
Someone is getting very nervous. Obama. Valerie Jarrett. Eric Holder. Hillary Clinton. Jon Corzine…to name just a few. And I know why.
I wrote a book entitled, “The Murder of the Middle Class” about the unholy conspiracy between big government, big business and big media. They all benefit by the billions from this partnership and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all, and all for one.
It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich. Everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies.
But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. I’ve never seen them this outraged…this vicious…this motivated…this coordinated. NEVER in all my years in politics, have I seen anything like the way the mad dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.
When white extremist David Dukes ran for Governor of Louisiana even he wasn’t treated with this kind of outrage, vitriol and disrespect. When a known fraud, scam artist and tax cheat like Al Sharpton ran for President, I never saw anything remotely close to this. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.
Why? Because David Duke was never going to win. Al Sharpton was never going to win. Ron Paul was never going to win. Ross Perot was never going to win as a third party candidate. None of those candidates had the billion dollars it takes to win the presidency. But Donald Trump can self fund that amount tomorrow…and still have another billion left over to pour into the last two week stretch run before election day.
No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business and political elite understand that Donald Trump is no joke and could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.
It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy Donald. No this is a coordinated conspiracy led by President Barack Obama himself. Obama himself is making the phone calls and giving the orders- the ultimate intimidator who plays by the rules of Chicago thug politics.
Why is this so important to Obama? Because most of the other politicians are part of the “old boys club.” They talk big, but in the end they won’t change a thing. Why? Because they are all beholden to big money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, multi-national corporations like Big Pharma or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock stock and barrel by foreigners- like George Soros owns Obama, or foreign governments own Hillary with their Clinton Foundation donations.
These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money. But one man- and only one man- isn’t beholden to anyone. One man doesn’t need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Autoworkers, or the Teachers Union, or the SEIU, or the Bar Association to fund his campaign.
Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help. That means he doesn’t care what the media says. He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think. That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests. That makes Trump a huge threat. Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slavemasters.
Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why Boehner and McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet they’ve never tried to defund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal Executive Action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right?
Well first, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs…or secretly gay…or stealing taxpayer money…the NSA knows everything.
Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money, from his own bank account. Trust me- the NSA, SEC, IRS and all the other 3-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They know everything.
Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called “racists.” So they are scared to ever criticize Obama, or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment.
Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you’re a “good boy” you’ve got a $5 million dollar per year lobbying job waiting.
The big money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose…they win.
But Donald Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules. Trump breaks up this nice cozy relationship between big government, big media and big business. All the rules are out the window if Donald wins the presidency. The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides. But not Donald.
Remember Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate. He questioned Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university.
Now he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do- question our relationship with Mexico …question why the border is wide open…questioning why no wall has been built across the border…questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests…questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes yet are not deported…questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.
Donald Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick? Good question.
I’m certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michele Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare web sites. By the way that tab is now up to $5 billion.
Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying. He will ask if Obama himself committed fraud when he said, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.”
Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records.
Trump will prosecute Hillary Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover-up Benghazi before the election.
How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election.
Obama, the multi-national corporations and the media need to stop this. They recognize this could get out of control. If left unchecked telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Donald could wake a sleeping giant.
Trump’s election would be a nightmare. Obama has committed many crimes. No one else but Donald would dare to prosecute. Donald Trump will not hesitate. Once Donald gets in and gets a look at “the cooked books” and Obama’s records, the game is over. The gig is up. The goose is cooked.
Eric Holder could wind up in prison. Valerie Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Jon Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money.
Hillary Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails …or accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State …or for “misplacing” $6 billion as head of State Department …or for lying about Benghazi.
The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison. Obamacare will be defunded and dismantled. The Obama Crime Family will be prosecuted for crimes against the American people. And Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters.
Trump will investigate. Trump will prosecute. Trump will go after everyone involved…just for fun. That will all happen on Trump’s first day in the White House.
Who knows what Donald will do on day #2?
That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump. That’s why we must all support Donald. This may be our only shot at saving America, uncovering the crimes committed against our nation and prosecuting all of those involved.

IT’S TIME FOR BLACK AMERICA TO BLAME BLACK AMERICA
By Wayne Allyn Root
Where are the black fathers in Baltimore? They don’t exist. I saw black mothers in the streets. I saw black male teens. But no black fathers trying to keep their kids off the streets and away from violence.
Where is Obama? Our nation’s first black president has been silent as blacks tear apart a major America city. He’s quick to weigh in and assign blame every time one black kid gets shot by a white cop. But not a word when thousands of blacks rampage and terrorize a city? Not a word about black-on-black crime, rioting, looting, burning or murder?
Where is the black Mayor of Baltimore? She clearly ordered police to stand down, make no arrests, stop no crimes while her city was being destroyed, while the businesses she is sworn to protect were being looted and burned. She clearly said days before the riots went ballistic that she wanted to create a “space for those who want to destroy.” Then she blamed the media for merely repeating her words verbatim. https://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/baltimore-city-mayor-allows-rioters-space-to-destroy-during-weekend-violent-protests-video
Where are the black leaders? Where’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?
How about the war on poverty? How’s that worked out for black America? The longest and most expensive war in American history has been in place since LBJ and inner cities like Baltimore look exactly the same. Same poverty. Same hopelessness. Same anger and violence. Same rioting and blame and excuses. After $22 trillion has been spent- more (by far) than all the wars in the history of America combined, the results are…nothing. https://www.ncpa.org/sub/dpd/index.php?Article_ID=25288
I hear plenty of excuses from black America. I hear they feel powerless. Really? With a black president, the first black Attorney General, another black Attorney General, a black Mayor of Baltimore and a black city council? All that and you still feel powerless?
How has having the first black president helped black America? With black unemployment double that of whites, who is to blame?
I heard ultra-liberal (and pathetically politically correct) CNN analyst Sally Kohn blame white America today. She wished white America would be half as outraged as outraged over “police violence” as they are over the riots. https://twitter.com/search?q=sally%20kohn&src=typd
Well I have a message for Sally Kohn:
I wish black Americans would be half as outraged over black on black violence, black on black murders, black gangs, black drug dealers, black looting, black burning of black small businesses, black rioting as they are about one white cop killing one black kid.
And one more thought for Sally and liberals like her…
What has 50 years of black rule, liberal welfare and entitlement policies, excuses and blame towards white people done for black Americans in inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit? Where’s the progress in those cities under 100% Democrat politicians and policies?
The sighting of a white Republican on the streets of cities like Detroit and Baltimore is just a rumor. There were no Republicans at the podium in Baltimore yesterday with the mayor. 100% black leadership. Yet urban inner cities like Baltimore and Detroit are in ruins.
It’s time to take personal responsibility. Slavery was a long, long, long time ago. My Jewish relatives were enslaved by Hitler and the Nazis much more recently than your ancestors were enslaved by the South. It’s time to move on.
It’s time to fight for jobs, not welfare. It’s time to look within yourselves. It’s time to stop blaming others. It’s time to blame black fathers. It’s time to blame black leaders. It’s time to blame a black president. It’s time to ask what the Democratic Party has ever done for you except insure you’re helpless, hopeless and dependent on government to survive. It’s time to blame the war on poverty.
It’s time for black Americans to blame black America.

The militarization of our police departments has been going on for some years now under the Obama administration. I have a file of several hundred attacks by police on homeless people, drivers, various homeowners killed by SWAT teams, elderly being tazed, and the murder of family pets for no reason both in homes and vehicles. Today’s police brutality is exceeded only by the Nazi brownshirts of the late 1930’s. Does anyone really believe this multi-million dollar effort is going to restore trust between citizens and law enforcement officials? Most likely it is more federalization of the police and more control over the people. I read the following article with a jaundiced eye.

Birmingham has been chosen as one of six cities nationwide to serve as a pilot site for a national initiative on restoring relationships between law enforcement and citizens.
Attorney General Eric Holder made the announcement today. The $4.7 million National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice was announced in April and is a partnership between federal officials and criminal justice experts focused on providing training, policy and research to address distrust between citizens and law enforcement.
The other pilot cities are: Ft. Worth, Gary, Indiana, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Stockton. The initiative comes after several high profile fatal police-involved shootings.
“We are truly honored that DOJ would select Birmingham as one of six national pilot sites,” said Birmingham police Chief A.C. Roper. “The mayor and I actually started discussing this initiative several months ago and knew there would be over 100 cities vying for the limited opportunities.”
“We’re all aware of the modern day issues and national discussion on policing in America. Although we’ve worked extremely hard building bridges in our communities we saw this initiative as an opportunity to strengthen relationships, increase public cooperation, and improve the perception of police legitimacy across our city,” Roper said. “We truly recognize that the Birmingham Police Department cannot be successful without community support and community trust. This three year project will allow us to serve as a national police model and increase our capacity to serve our citizens.”
The Department of Justice started the initiative as part of the My Brother’s Keeper program, which seeks to create opportunities for all young people throughout the country – regardless of background – to improve their lives and reach their full potential.
“We are always committed to engaging with the community to ensure that we are serving them and hearing their concerns,” Birmingham U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance said in a prepared statement. “We want to do a good job of listening, so that we can work together to make the community safe. We appreciate the opportunity to be one of the six pilot sites in this initiative, and the recognition from Washington that we are trying to get it right down here.”
French philosopher Voltaire (1694-1778) wrote that “To learn who rules over you, simply find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.”
By that yardstick, the rulers in America today are Blacks and Muslims.
The citizens’ watchdog group Judicial Watch reports that in May 2013:
In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.
The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates)….
“Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,” Holder said after expressing that he is “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights.
Holder’s message was reinforced by a federal attorney and an FBI agent.
As reported by The Tullahoma News, Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division) warned Americans that they can be prosecuted for “violating civil rights” when they post inflammatory commentary targeted at Muslims.
Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights “as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion” are subject to federal jurisdiction and prosecution. Referring to a 2013 Facebook posting by Tennessee Coffee County Commissioner Barry West of a picture of a man pointing a double-barreled shotgun at a camera lens with the caption saying, “How to Wink at a Muslim,” Killian said, “If a Muslim had posted ‘How to Wink at a Christian,’ could you imagine what would have happened? We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected.”
Eric Holder said he’s “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights? Holder should tell that to:
H/t Freedom Outpost
After all the rioting and looting and burning in Ferguson, St. Louis, and across America protesting the grand jury’s decision to NOT charge white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson with the shooting death on Aug. 9, 2014, of black 18-year-old “gentle giant” Michael Brown . . . .
After the media, led by CNN, jeopardized the lives of Officer Wilson and his family by broadcasting his home address . . . .
After all the millions of #BlackLivesMatter self-righteous tweets . . . .
After the race-baiting by Black extortionists like Al Sharpton . . . .
After a white Marine veteran sustained brain injury from being assaulted by 20 Blacks angry about Ferguson . . . .
After a black Texas school teacher told white Americans (“dumb duck ass crackers”) who disagree with her on Ferguson to “kill yourselves” . . . .
After Black Muslim Louis Farrakhan incited violence by publicly threatening race war . . . .
After the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder fanned the racial flames by traveling to Ferguson and speaking of his experiences as a victim of racial profiling . . . .
After the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama fanned the racial flames by claiming she and her husband had been victims of racism and racial profiling . . . .
And in spite of the President of the United States Barack Obama throwing a match into the racial fire by secretly meeting with Ferguson protest leaders to “stay on course” and telling black Americans via the Black Entertainment Network that white cops have a “subconscious fear” of black Americans because they “look different” (when the FBI’s own statistics show that more black cops kill black felons than white cops kill black felons, and the real problem is that of blacks disproportionately killing white cops) . . . .
After all the above and more, the Obama administration’s own Department of Justice will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against Darren Wilson because the Obama administration’s own Federal Bureau of Investigation has found no evidence to support such charges.
Matt Apuzzo and Michael S. Schmidt report for The New York Times, Jan. 21, 2015, that although Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against officer Darren Wilson, “it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.”
The FBI’s conclusion supports a prior and separate investigation by Missouri authorities who had recommended against charging Wilson.
Federal investigators interviewed more than 200 people and analyzed cellphone audio and video. Officer Wilson’s gun, clothing and other evidence were analyzed at the F.B.I.’s laboratory in Quantico, Va. Though the local authorities and Brown’s family conducted autopsies, Holder ordered a separate autopsy, which was conducted by pathologists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner’s office at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
The federal investigation did not uncover any facts that differed significantly from the evidence made public by the authorities in Missouri late last year. To bring federal civil rights charges, the Justice Department would have needed to prove that Officer Wilson had intended to violate Brown’s rights when he opened fire, and that he had done so willfully — meaning he knew that it was wrong to fire but did so anyway.
The Justice Department plans to release a report explaining its decision, though it is not clear when. Dena Iverson, a department spokeswoman, declined to comment on the case Wednesday.
But a broader Justice Department civil rights investigation into allegations of discriminatory traffic stops and excessive force by the Ferguson Police Department remains open. That investigation could lead to significant changes at the department, which is overwhelmingly white despite serving a city that is mostly black. It is not clear when the broader civil rights inquiry of the police department, known as a pattern or practice investigation, will be completed. Under AG Holder, prosecutors have opened more than 20 such investigations nationwide. The Justice Department recently called for sweeping changes to the Cleveland Police Department and negotiated an independent monitor to oversee the department in Albuquerque.
Benjamin L. Crump, a lawyer for Brown’s family, said he did not want to comment on the investigation until the Justice Department made an official announcement. “We’ve heard speculation on cases before that didn’t turn out to be true,” Mr. Crump said. “It’s too much to put the family through to respond to every rumor.”
Wilson’s lawyer did not return calls for comment.
Wilson resigned from the department in November, citing threats of violence against him and other officers. “It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal,” he said.

Why I Pray for the Man Who Calls Himself Obama
I don’t think that I have ever felt so much anger towards a single person as I do towards the man who calls himself Obama. When I think of the blatant destruction that he and his cabal of communist usurpers have brought to this country via illegitimate authority: the economic destitution, the destruction of sacred marriage, the persecution and attacks on conservatives and Christians, the ruined lives, the wrecked marriages, the murder of millions of babies, the deliberate tearing down of racial progress and the proliferation of racist policies and actions, etc., I am at a loss to come up with another person in my lifetime that more personifies the word evil.
Yet, I pray for the man.
Why? Because if there’s anyone who has done more to deliberately chart a course to his own eternal damnation in the fires of hell, it’s him. Yet I know that God loves him.
For the same reason, I pray for Holder, and Hillary, and Reid, and Jarrett, and Biden, and Pelosi, and Boxner, and Feinstein, and all the rest.
They are sowing the seeds of their own damnation. Yet God loves them.
I’ll admit, it’s hard to pray for these people. It takes effort. Yet the more I do it, the easier it becomes.
Perhaps one of them will be saved. Perhaps one of them will see the light and the errors of their ways. On the one hand, I’m not optimistic. On the other hand, I know that all things are possible with God.
