Farrakhan threatens race war, as "teens" kill white man with hammers

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97Y9FjtQ5Wc]
In a speech last Saturday (Nov. 29, 2014) at Morgan State University, a black college located in Baltimore, Maryland, leader of the black Muslim Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan — with his pasted-on hair and his malice barely concealed beneath his sinister smile — effectively calls for a race war in America by threatening that “we’ll tear this goddamn country apart” if the demands of Ferguson protesters aren’t met.
The protesters want to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown although a St. Louis County grand jury had reviewed the evidence and concluded that the shooting of Brown was justified and Wilson should not be indicted.
The Daily Caller reports that Farrakhan said that peaceful protests are only in the interest of “white folks.” Invoking the “law of retaliation” that he claims to be in both the Bible and the Koran, Farrakhan said violence is justified in response to the St. Louis County grand jury’s decision. “We are going to die anyway,” so “Let’s die for something.”
Farrakhan also said the parents of teenagers should teach their kids how to throw Molotov cocktails: “Teach your baby how to throw the bottle if they can. Fight!” Farrakhan then made gestures of throwing an explosive device.
Despite its name, the beliefs of the Nation of Islam have little to do with Islam but instead consist of bizarre notions that “the original man” was black, that a black scientist invented the white man — those evil “blue eyed devils” — in a lab some 6,000 years ago, and that the end days are near, when a big mother “wheel” or UFO will appear in the sky to restore blacks to their rightful place on Earth as the superior race. (See Message to the Black Man in America, by Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad, who was born Elijah Robert Poole.)
Meanwhile, a group of “teens” in St. Louis seemed to have heeded Farrakhan’s call to a race war.
In the early hours of Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014, 32-year-old Zemir Begic was sitting in his car in south St. Louis when a group of “teens” began banging on the car. Begic, a Bosnian immigrant to the United States, stepped out of the car and was brutally attacked by the “teens” with hammers until he was unconscious and left for dead. The suspects then fled on foot.

KMOV St. Louis reports that Begic was found unconscious with injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth in the 4200 block of Itaska at 1:15 a.m. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Surveillance video led to the capture a short time later of two of the suspects, 15 and 16 years old, who were placed in the custody of juvenile authorities. Later, a third teen, 17, surrendered himself to homicide investigators.
The violent death of Begic sparked a spontaneous protest in south St. Louis’ Bosnian community with about 50 demonstrators blocking off traffic at Gravois and Itaska Sunday night.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson tried to assure the Bosnians: “I want everybody to know I take your safety and everyone in the community’s safety very seriously. I heard your message loud and clear. You want to make sure you are safe. I want to make sure you are safe in every neighborhood in our city.”
Dotson also said the strain Ferguson has put on his department is great as officers have been working 12 hour shifts and no days off, but he assured the crowd the police will be here to protect them.
So what’s the racial identity of the four “teens”?
Regular readers of FOTM should know by now that whenever the news media use vague words such as “teens” and “juveniles” in reference to crime suspects, those are code words for young BLACKS. In the case of Begic’s murderers, it’s no different. Here’s confirmation that his murderers are black.
1. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that “A police spokeswoman said investigators do not believe race played a role in the bludgeoning death of a Bosnian immigrant early Sunday, but declined to say what police believe is the motive in the killing.” That immediately is a clue that Begic’s assailants are black.
2. The deceased’s 23-year-old sister Denisa Begic told St. Louis Post-Dispatch that “some Bosnians are upset over her brother’s death because they believe the suspects, who are black and Hispanic, targeted Begic because he was Bosnian,” i.e., white. Why would those Bosnians think the suspects are black? Because not only was the brutal attack recorded by surveillance camera (the video of which has not been released to the public), there’s an eye-witness to the killing — Suad Nuranjkovic, 49, who was a passenger in Begic’s car “when a group of at least five teens started banging on the car.” Afraid for his life, Nuranjkovic got out of the car and hid in a parking lot across the street during the attack.
On Twitchy, people are tweeting about why the national mainstream media are not reporting the brutal murder by hammers of Zemir Begic. Here’s an example:
Twitter on Begic
Writing for Breitbart, Awr Hawkins concludes:

This senseless beating death—which came on the heels of the November 24 Ferguson looting and the August riots—demands a clear response from Republicans who aspire to run for president in 2016. Those would-be candidates need to study the 1968 GOP campaign and revive calls for “law and order.”

Devil's Night in Ferguson: paramilitary men set car on fire

On the night of November 24, 2014, after St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s announcement of the grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, the Missouri cities of Ferguson and St. Louis ignited in a conflagration of riots, looting, and burning.
Note that prosecutor McCulloch must have known that timing his announcement for 8 pm Central Time is sheer lunacy because anyone with two brain cells knows that darkness provides the perfect cover for looters, rioters, and arsonists.
Ferguson is part of the Greater St. Louis metropolitan area, with a majority Black population (67.4% in the 2010 census).
Ferguson St. Louis map
Most of the destruction took place within two square miles, centering on Florissant Ave. and Chambers Rd. in northern St. Louis (with a majority Black population), right on the eastern edge of Ferguson.
Florrisant Ave. & Chambers Rd
I don’t watch network TV news, so the images captured in the video below are the first I’ve seen of the mayhem.

It was a Devil’s night of hell on Earth.

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDLpiEWlFZ0]
Here’s a breakdown and analysis of the video:
The video begins with a fire burning inside and smoke billowing out of the building of the Auto Zone store.
Ferguson
Three men dressed in black hoodies and pants are outside the TitleMax Title Loans store. One of them smashes the glass door.
Ferguson1
Another store, Auto Parts, is engulfed in flames.
Ferguson2
Throughout all this, the voices of black men are audible, as cars drive past, honking, as if this was some ordinary night on the busy main street of some small town in America. Who are the people in the cars? Are they rioters or gawkers?
At the 0:52 mark in the video, four white men wearing facial masks, dark caps, dark jackets with some insignia on the front and back. One man is carrying a rifle.
Ferguson3
Who are these men? 
At the 1:05 mark, a fire is burning inside TitleMax Title Loans.
Beg. at the 1:10 mark, we see an extraordinarily brave unarmed woman determined to protect a Papa Johns store. A man (#1) in a dark jacket and backpack, wearing a light-colored cap and face mask, is breaking the glass window of the store. A white woman with short dark blonde hair confronts the man. A black man (#2) joins man #1, shouting at and arguing with the woman. Man #1 defiantly throws another rock at the window. More shouting at the woman. Man #1 kicks the window and shoves the woman against the boarded-up door. She stands firm.
Ferguson5
At the 2:13 mark, a group of five (including a couple holding hands!) stand in front of the Fashion R store. One of the group smashes a window with a garbage bin, as looters go in and out of the store’s broken door carrying armfuls of clothes.
At the 3:15 mark, things get really interesting.
A group of seven men in military-green jackets and pants, light-colored head gear and white face masks, carrying backpacks and assault rifles, stand around a car parked to the side of the Advance Auto Parts store. One of the men, dressed in black, throws something incendiary (a flashbang grenade?) into the car.

Ferguson7Paramilitary men in Ferguson riot, Nov. 24, 2014Click pic to enlarge

By the 3:24 mark, the video camera has moved away from the paramilitary men.
I cropped the second picture above to get a closer-up view of two of the men. Note the military field-green color of their uniforms, the big backpacks, white masks, and white shoes.
Ferguson8
They look paramilitary. What were they doing, throwing a grenade into a car?
The video camera then pans across the Advance Auto Parts store, showing a fire inside.
At the 3:28 mark, three more paramilitary men (inside the yellow circle I painted) are walking on the sidewalk past a row of cars parked in front of the auto parts store.
Ferguson9
At 3:37, the video camera comes in for a split-second close-up of three of the paramilitary men who had been standing around while the black-garbed man threw a grenade into the car.
Ferguson10
At 4:47, another business completely engulfed in flames.
Ferguson11
At 5:09, a man wearing a gas mask and dark clothes with the word “POLICE” in white on his back, walks past with a German Shepherd dog on a leash. Note that he looks nothing like the paramilitary men at Advance Auto Parts.
Ferguson12
At the 5:27 mark, TitleMax Title Loans is now completely engulfed in flames. You can hear the crackling sound of the fire. Next door is Hunan Chop Suey Chinese Restaurant, which also was burned down.
Ferguson13
At the 6:26 mark, Taco Bell is also burning.
Ferguson14
At the 6:48 mark, a group of men in dark clothing and helmets are standing next to two black police cars with flashing lights at a Mobile gas station. You can hear a black man’s voice saying they are “SWAT team.” Note that the SWAT men look different from the paramilitary men at Advance Auto Parts.
Ferguson15
At the 8:06 mark, a big store with the words “LOVE” on one of its windows looks ransacked and looted.
Ferguson16
The video ends with the image of a white man dressed all in black with short dark hair, wearing dark glasses and a black mask over his mouth, carrying some sort of weapon. Is he one of the SWAT team? Note that he does not look at all like the paramilitary men.
Ferguson17
Here’s a side by side comparison of paramilitary dudes vs. SWAT dude:
Ferguson8
Nor do the paramilitary men in Ferguson resemble the Missouri National Guardsmen who, despite having been activated by Gov. Jay Nixon, were nowhere in sight on the night of Nov. 24, 2014.  Ferguson Mayor James Knowles says National Guard troops were purposely held back. Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder has accused Gov. Jay Nixon of holding back the National Guard troops because of pressure from Obama’s attorney general Eric Holder.
The National Guard were deployed only the next day. This is what the Missouri National Guard look like (source of pic: USA Today). Note that they don’t look anything like those paramilitary men at Advance Auto Parts.
Missouri National Guard troops
So what were those paramilitary men doing at Advance Auto Parts, throwing an incendiary bomb into a car? Had they set the store on fire earlier, out of the sight of the video camera? Did they set other cars on fire like these at the 7:18 mark in the video (below)? What about the businesses like TitleMax Title Loans and Hunan Chop Suey that were burned down? Did the paramilitary guys also set the stores on fire?
Burning cars in Ferguson riot, Nov. 24, 2014
To add to the suspicion, in the video below, a man who identifies himself as a former fire chief, firefighter and a fire academy certified instructor, tells Alex Jones that in his expert judgment, the fires in Ferguson were the work of TRAINED arsonists.

Are Ferguson riots a planned event?

A day after the Nov. 24 Ferguson riots, Washington Post published a fascinating article by the Post‘s senior editor Marc Fisher and Wesley Lowery on how the riots had an inorganic staged character. In their words:

The unseemly buildup to the announcement of the grand jury’s conclusion that no crime was committed in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown has produced an expectation of ugliness. What occurred Monday night — and may continue in the days ahead — is rioting as planned event, so pervasively predicted, so extensively prepared for as to obscure the power and meaning of the protests.
A news media obsessed with predicting the next step, a security apparatus equipped to put down almost any uprising, and a political power structure apparently seeking to head off violence by predicting it have combined to produce an unprecedented sense of inevitability, reducing what has historically been an explosion of frustration to a kind of staged performance. […] Monday night’s violence became on-demand programming for a nation that flits from one blockbuster event to the next.

If you read the entire article, you’d know that Fisher and Lowery did not mean the riots were really “planned” and “staged” events, orchestrated like some theatrical performance. But Fisher and Lowery inadvertently may have come closer to the truth than they realized.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch

St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch


To begin, why did St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch schedule his announcement of the grand jury’s decision for 8 p.m. central time? Anyone with half a brain knows that the night provides just the perfect cover of darkness for looters, vandals, and arsonists to commit mayhem, which was precisely what happened.
Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse asks that and other questions, as well as points out ten oddities about the night of Nov. 24, 2014:
1. Federal, state and local law enforcement authorities had more than three months to prepare for the violence that would follow the announcement of the grand jury decision. The mainstream media endlessly hyped this controversy and everyone knew that trouble would be brewing.  But despite an enormous amount of time to prepare, very little was actually done to prevent any violence from happening.
2. Anyone involved in law enforcement knows that crowd control is far more difficult after dark. But prosecutor McCulloch made the decision to make the public announcement about the grand jury decision in the evening. This also ensured that instead of being tied up with work or school, a maximum number of protesters would be able to be involved in the violence.
3. The announcement of the grand jury decision was perfectly timed to provide the largest possible number of prime time viewers for the big news networks.
4. Just like back in August, no law enforcement authorities of any kind responded while dozens of businesses were vandalized, looted and set on fire.
5. Ferguson Mayor James Knowles says National Guard troops were purposely held back from intervening in the rioting that was unleashed when the grand jury decision was made known to the public. The troops had been readied a week before by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, but as gunshots rang out in the night and looters torched buildings, they were nowhere to be seen. In a press conference, Knowles said the Guard troops were available but were not deployed when city officials asked.
6. Instead of being deployed for crowd- and riot-control, the Daily Mail reports that the heavily armed National Guard troops were limited to “keeping the peace at a courthouse, patrolling the outskirts of town and preventing disturbances in other suburbs” as violence raged in the heart of Ferguson on Monday night.
7. Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder has accused Missouri Governor Jay Nixon of holding back the National Guard troops because of pressure from the Obama administration. Kinder told Fox News:

“Is the reason that the National Guard was not in there because the Obama Administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out? I cannot imagine any other reason why the governor who mobilized the National Guard would not have them in there to stop this.”

8. According to the Washington Post, a Justice Department official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said Attorney General Eric Holder had expressed to Governor Nixon “displeasure and frustration” about Nixon’s activation of the National Guard because doing so “escalated” the situation in Ferguson.
9. Firefighters in Ferguson did not immediately respond to calls to put out the multiple fires that were set by protesters. As a result, many businesses burned to the ground. (See “Ferguson: Before and After the Riots”)
10. In the worst of the “war zones,” journalists with cameras and microphones were crawling all over the place, but hardly any police was seen.
Snyder concludes by asking:

How is it possible that law enforcement could have failed so badly?  Could it be possible that this was orchestrated on purpose?

All of which brings us to this video of St. Louis County police officer Dan Page (who was a Green Beret and sergeant major in the U.S. Army) who gave an extraordinary speech to the Oathkeepers of St. Louis and St. Charles in 2012:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cF2zKzXYAwQ&sns=fb
Here’s a transcript:
“Contractors are going to come in, maybe me. People like me who don’t have a side; they’re gonna kill you. You’re going to start seeing people — that person sitting right next to you, a few years from now will not be sitting here ’cause they’ll be gone. Somebody like me’s gonna come in and kill you….”
[Page passes out copies of what he calls “a proposed Constitution” that’s been drafted, ordered under George W. Bush] The new Constitution is all ready to go. They only need the right incident to bring it down, and they’re working on that right now. We’re not very far away from an event that’s gonna bring what you call martial law, but that term will never be used by the way, “Emergency Police Powers” will be.
“I know that there’s a big target on my back… I still carry a secret clearance…I get briefed every six months, I still do. You’re going to start seeing more, the news media will start banging on something, could be Ukraine, could be we don’t know. That’s how psychological warfare works: they talk about this, and this is happening over there [gesturing to his left]. It’s called a distraction….
“So number one is there’s gonna be an emphasis upon an international event, the news media’s gonna pound it, pound it. The second thing is you’re gonna start to see a group or a person guilty of racism or something along those lines. They’re gonna start pounding on that. They want your attention over here [gesturing to his right]. The third thing you’re gonna start seeing is people being arrested for domestic terrorism. The fourth thing you’re gonna see is…what I call ‘ancient hates, ancient madness, ancient revenge.’ When these things start to happen, people are gonna start rioting, the EBT cards are gonna shut down. Can you imagine what’s gonna happen in our St. Louis County when the EBT cards go down, when the ATM machines don’t work… Think about what’s gonna happen when the inner cities start to ignite, people are gonna start killing people they don’t know….”
[At the 3:23 mark] “Do you know how the Muslims take care of you? They cut your head off. Obama is allowing hundreds of thousands come in every week…. Muslims are passive until they gain parity with you or they exceed you in numbers, and they will kill you. I told my commander I’m not gonna obey an undocumented president [referring to Obama not being constitutionally eligible to be president]. And I left — I took two years early retirement.”
In other words, in 2012, many months before Ukraine (and Crimea) became an international crisis in which the Obama administration has locked the United States in opposition to the Soviet Union, Dan Page had already predicted that the U.S. news media would “pound on” Ukraine.
In 2012, two years before Officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown and so ignited racial riots in Ferguson and St. Louis and protests across America, Officer Dan Page had already predicted that “a group or a person” would be accused of racism, which would arouse “ancient hates” and “people are gonna start rioting.”
In the August riots in Ferguson, Officer Page made the news when CNN reporter Don Lemon complained to the police department that Page had shoved him.
On August 23, 2014, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that a day before, on August 22, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar announced that “officer Dan Page, a 35-year veteran of the department, has been suspended pending a review by the internal affairs unit” after Lemon brought the video of Page’s “incendiary” 2012 speech to the attention of Belmar.

Belmar told the Post-Dispatch that Page’s comments defaming President Barack Obama, the U.S. Supreme Court, Muslims and various sexual orientations, and especially his self-description as “an indiscriminate killer” were “beyond the scope of acceptable police conduct.”

Blacks who protected stores from Ferguson looters

The other day, I posted about righteous blacks who spoke out against the Ferguson looters, arsonists and rioters, to remind us that we should not generalize from the looters to all black Americans.
Not only should we eschew generalizing from the Ferguson looters to all black Americans, we should not generalize from the rioters to all Ferguson blacks.
Why?
Because there were black Ferguson residents, including Bloods and Crips gang members, who risked their own safety by protecting small businesses from looters.

Black Ferguson residents protect white-owned store, Nov. 24, 2014

Black Ferguson residents protect white-owned store, Nov. 24, 2014


Emily Flitter reports for Reuters (via Las Vegas Review Journal) that on the night of Nov. 24, 2014, at least a dozen stores were set ablaze and others looted in racially charged riots in Ferguson after a grand jury cleared white policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown.
But as looters were rioting and burning down businesses in a two-square-mile area of the predominantly black city, one business was spared — a white-owned Conoco gas station and convenience store. That was because a group of black Ferguson residents armed with high-powered rifles stood outside the store to protect it from the rampaging mob. 
Missouri allows the open carrying of firearms.
One of the protectors, a 6-foot-8 man named Derrick “Stretch” Johnson, held an AR-15 assault rifle as he stood in a pickup truck near the store’s entrance. Three other black Ferguson residents joined Johnson in front of the store, each of them armed with pistols.
That night, Jordan and his three friends at times were joined by other black men from the neighborhood, also armed. None of the men was getting paid to be there. They said they felt they owed it to the store’s owner Doug Merello, who has employed many of them over the years and treats them with respect.
Carrying a Taurus 9mm pistol in his sweatpants, a 29-year-old man who identified himself as R.J. said Merello is “a nice dude, he’s helped us a lot.” R.J. said the group chased away several groups of teenagers who wanted to loot the store, but also nearly got into a brush with soldiers from the Missouri National Guard who initially mistook them for looters. The guardsmen, rifles raised, had handcuffed one man before Merello came outside the store to explain that the residents were trying to help, not hurt.
Like the other volunteer protectors, R.J. had lived a short distance away from Merello’s store for most of his life.
Merello, whose father had first bought the gas station in 1984, said the men definitely saved his store: “We would have been burned to the ground many times over if it weren’t for them.”

Note: According to Channel 4 KMOV St. Louis, however, a Conoco gas station was among the businesses that were damaged in the riot: “A Conoco gas station and cars in the parking lot of a nearby car dealership were set on fire Monday night.”.

During the riots last August in Ferguson and St. Louis, there also were blacks who protected stores from looters.
Here’s a picture of three black men from the Bloods (red-orange color) and Crips (blue color) gangs guarding a beauty salon and supply store at 9070 W. Florissant Ave., St. Louis, in August 2014.

Righteous Blacks speak out against Ferguson riots

Tempting though it may be, we must eschew generalizing from the blacks who rioted, looted, and burned after the grand jury decision, to all black Americans. If we do that, we are descending to the same irrational and passion-driven level of the rioters.
Instead, we must be SPECIFIC — distinguishing the rioters, the agitators and inciters (Missouri State Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadali and Michael Brown’s stepfather Louis Head), and the forked-tongue demagogues (Barack Obama, Eric Holder) from rational and righteous blacks like Rev./Dr. James David Manning, media personality Johnathan Gentry, and Project 21, the national leadership network of Black conservatives.

Project 21’s Comment on Ferguson Grand Jury Decision:

Ferguson, MO / Washington, D.C. – After a grand jury chose not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death last August of local resident Michael Brown, members of the Project 21 black leadership network are speaking out about the ruling, what it means for the black community and how protestors might redirect their energies to find some redemption from the loss.
Stacy Washington“Now that we have a grand jury decision, may the process of healing begin in earnest,” said Project 21 member Stacy Washington, a St. Louis resident who hosts a local radio talk show. “I truly hope for a refocus of protest energy towards reflection and away from blaming the police for the difficulties facing black Americans today. We must begin to look at improving ourselves instead of blaming groups of others for endemic problems that plague the black community. May God grant the Brown family peace and closure.”
Joe Hicks“The grand jury’s decision shows that facts do matter,” said Project 21 member Joe R. Hicks, a former executive director or the Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Los Angeles City Human Rights Commission. “From the inception — and despite the hyperbolic rhetoric from national black leaders, local protesters and political opportunists of all stripes — my position was that the facts and a thorough investigation would tell the story of what happened on that street between teenager Michael Brown and Officer Darren Wilson. Now that Officer Wilson’s actions have been deemed within the scope of a lawful police response to the dangerous actions of Mr. Brown, it’s now important to watch how the so-called black leadership responds. Will they irresponsibly reject the decision, along with the facts it revealed, and continue to claim that Brown was the murder victim of a racist white cop? To what extent will Ferguson protesters defy the orders of authorities for lawful behavior? We don’t need a replay of the violent, pathological riots we saw on the streets of that small suburb of St. Louis.”
Michael DozierIt amazes me that there are so many who dismissed the fact that Michael Brown robbed a convenience store and attacked a police officer prior to being killed,” said Project 21 member Michael Dozier, Ph.D. “Once again, the black community largely turned a blind eye to the real issues affecting the very lives of our youths. Black-on-black crime is an epidemic and thousands of black children are brutally killed every year, yet we do not see the Al Sharptons or Jesse Jacksons protesting their deaths. The President doesn’t proclaim their lives would reflect the life of a son he never had. The black community needs to stop with the excuses and victimization and stop allowing antagonists to come into their communities to promote their own agendas.”
Kevin Martin“Now that the grand jury has rendered a decision, people on both sides can now peacefully debate the result. The decision does not give anyone the right to engage in property destruction, physical assaults and general chaos if they don’t agree with that decision,” said Project 21 member Kevin Martin. “The grand jury looked at all the evidence, and it surely did its best to render a judgment respectful of all parties. It is long past the time for those who might seek to use violence to achieve an outcome to decamp from Ferguson and allow the community to heal.”
Since August, Project 21 has issued six press releases and posted numerous news-related blog entries addressing the death of Michael Brown and related events. Project 21 members have already completed over 150 radio and television interviews on the death of Michael Brown and unrest in Ferguson, Missouri and have been mentioned by Cal Thomas in his nationally-syndicated column. Several Project 21 members have visited the area in the wake of the initial rioting, and two members live in the immediate area and another is currently there to chronicle events as they unfold.
Additionally, Project 21 member have been interviewed or cited by the media over 1,500 other times in 2014 – including TVOne, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Fox News Channel, Westwood One, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, SiriusXM satellite radio and the 50,000-watt radio stations WBZ-Boston, WHO-Des Moines, KDKA-Pittsburgh, KOA-Denver and WJR-Detroit – on issues that include civil rights, entitlement programs, the economy, race preferences, education and corporate social responsibility. Project 21 has participated in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court regarding race preferences and voting rights, defended voter ID laws at the United Nations and provided regular commentary during the Trayvon Martin judicial proceedings in 2013. Its volunteer members come from all walks of life and are not salaried political professionals.

Rev./Dr. James David Manning:

Pastor James Manning, of the ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem, New York, tells his people that if they want to progress, they must “break the demonic ancestral spirits” — the Barack Obamas, Nelson Mandelas, the Louis Farrakhans, the Jesse Jacksons, the Al Sharptons, who offer blacks nothing but “food stamps and cell phones” instead of helping them to be owners of homes and businesses. Instead of the Holy Spirit, these so-called leaders to whom blacks look up, are all demon-possessed.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eZSb9dArVg

Johnathan Gentry:

On Gentry’s Facebook page, he writes this to the rioters on Nov. 25, 2014, a day after the grand jury decision:

“You showed absolutely No Respect to Michael Brown, his family, your community, or yourself! But yet, you demand respect as a human being. His family asked for a “Peaceful” protest. Yet, you disregarded, dishonored & disrespected their wishes & burned down your own city anyway. It’s your own actions & behavior that’s keeping you bound, stuck & not getting ahead. Everything you stood for went down the drain last night by burning down your own community. That’s no ones fault but YOURS!! Your behavior confirmed everything I been speaking on #Accountability #Responsibility.
“Your iniquities have turned these blessings away, and your sins have kept good from you.” (Jeremiah 5:25)

In the video below, Gentry says the rioting, looting, and burning “is not helping…. Change is not going to come unless we change it…. All we know how to do is march, and riot, and loot. This is not helping…. All we know how to do is to blame the police and white folks for our action…. ‘They mistreat us. They beat us up. Oh, slavery still exists.’ I’m sick of it! … Let’s change as black people. When is this going to stop! … How are our kids going to grow up when we out here are acting stupid! … [To the black civil rights leaders who converge on Ferguson chanting] ‘No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace.’ Shut up! When there were 60 plus [black-on-black] shootings in Chicago…, where were you? No where to be found… When little Ray-Ray kills little Lucas, where were you? No where to be found. When the little girl riding her tricycle in her front yard was hit by stray bullets, where were you? No where to be found. Police beat up on the black man — Aw, slavery exists! Slavery still exists!”
Listen to the rest of what this impassioned man has to say for yourself.

To the Ferguson rioters/looters/vandals/arsonists:

This is what you did in the name of “Justice for Michael Brown.”
You must be so proud burning, looting, demolishing small businesses, most of which are owned by minorities.
You must be so proud trashing your home town. Even animals know better than to foul their nests.
Just remember these pictures when you complain in the weeks, months and years to come that no one wants to set up business in Ferguson — an auto store, a laundromat, a beauty supply store, a Little Caesar’s pizza, a gas station, an antique store, a Chinese restaurant . . . .

To Barack Obama:
You’ve made two speeches since the Ferguson grand jury decision. I read both speeches (here and here) and found NOT ONE WORD of empathy for the owners whose small businesses were maliciously and wantonly destroyed. Instead, you asked for “understanding” for the rioters and condemned Americans who actually are disturbed by the violence:

“But what is also true is that there are still problems and communities of color aren’t just making these problems up. Separating that from this particular decision, there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in discriminatory fashion. I don’t think that’s the norm. I don’t think that’s true for the majority of communities or the vast majority of law enforcement officials. But these are real issues.  And we have to lift them up and not deny them or try to tamp them down. What we need to do is to understand them. […] those who are only interested in focusing on the violence and just want the problem to go away need to recognize that we do have work to do here, and we shouldn’t try to paper it over.” (“Remarks by the President After Announcement of the Decision by the Grand Jury in Ferguson, Missouri,” Nov. 24, 2014)
“And as I said last night, the frustrations that we’ve seen are not just about a particular incident.  They have deep roots in many communities of color who have a sense that our laws are not always being enforced uniformly or fairly. […] Separate and apart from the particular circumstances in Ferguson, which I am careful not to speak to because it’s not my job as President to comment on ongoing investigations and specific cases, but the frustrations people have generally — those are rooted in some hard truths that have to be addressed. […]  And to those who think that what happened in Ferguson is an excuse for violence, I do not have any sympathy for that.  (Applause.) […] But for the overwhelming majority of people who just feel frustrated and pain because they get a sense that maybe some communities aren’t treated fairly, or some individuals aren’t seen as worthy as others, I understand that.  (“Remarks by the President on Immigration – Chicago, IL,” Nov. 25, 2014)

From your speeches, I can only conclude that you view yourself as President of only “communities of color” and those misunderstood “frustrated” rioters, but not of the small business owners, many of whom are minorities, whose businesses were looted, trashed, and burned to the ground, nor of Americans like me who actually take notice of the violence and destruction.

Ferguson cop: Michael Brown looked like "a demon"

Michael Brown, 6"4", 300 lb.

Michael Brown, 6″4″, 300 lb.


Leonardo Blair writes for The Christian Post, Nov. 25, 2014:
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, revealed in grand jury testimony released Monday evening that he was attacked by a hulking teenager who had the look of a “demon.”
In his chilling account before the Grand Jury on Sept. 16 of what led to Brown’s death on Aug. 9, Wilson described Brown as belligerent, petulant and showed no respect for his authority as an officer of the law. Wilson, who describes himself as 6-foot-4 and weighing approximately 210 pounds, explained that when he first tried to defend himself against Brown he was forced to grapple with the teenager’s incredible strength.
“… When I grabbed him, the only way I can describe it is I felt like a 5-year-old holding onto Hulk Hogan. … That’s how big he felt and how small I felt just from grasping his arm,” said Wilson.
He further explained that during a fight with Brown inside his patrol vehicle, Brown dared him to shoot him and he was worried that a third punch from the teenager could have killed him [Wilson].
“He grabs my gun, says ‘You are too much of a [expletive] to shoot me.’ The gun goes down into my hip and at that point I thought I was getting shot. I can feel his fingers try to get inside the trigger guard with my finger and I distinctly remember envisioning a bullet going into my leg. I thought that was the next step,” Wilson said of the struggle.
Wilson explained that he attempted to fire his gun several times as he struggled with Brown in his patrol vehicle but it didn’t go off.
“Like I said, I was just so focused on getting the gun out of me. When I did get it up to this point, he is still holding onto it and I pulled the trigger and nothing happens. It just clicked. I pulled it again, it just clicked again,” he noted.
The gun eventually goes off after a third attempt.
“At this point, I’m like why isn’t this working, this guy is going to kill me if he gets ahold of this gun. I pulled it a third time, it goes off. When it went off, it shot through my door panel and my window was down and glass flew off my door panel. I think that kind of startled him and me at the same time,” Wilson said. “When I see the glass come up, it comes, a chunk about that big comes across my right hand and then I notice I have blood on the back of my hand.”
Wilson explained that after the first shot is fired and he sees blood on his hand, Brown gives him an angry look that makes him appear “like a demon.”
“After seeing the blood on my hand, I looked at him … he looked up at me and had the most intense aggressive face. The only way I can describe it, it looks like demon, that’s how angry he looked. He comes back toward me again with his hands up. At that point I just went like this, I tried to pull the trigger again, click, nothing happened,” said Wilson.
He said he then saw Brown’s hands and demon-like face coming toward him and he shielded his face as Brown hit him. That attack forces him to fire his gun without even taking aim.
So I pulled the trigger, it just clicks that time. Without even looking, I just grab the top of my gun, the slide and I racked it, and I put my, still not looking just holding my hand up, I pulled the trigger again, it goes off.
Wilson is then asked how many times the gun went off in the police car and he said twice.
“When I look up after that, I see him start to run and I see a cloud of dust behind him. I then get out of my car. As I’m getting out of the car I tell dispatch, ‘shots fired, send me more cars.'”
At this point, Wilson said he decides to go after Brown.
“We start running, kind of the same direction that Johnson had pointed. Across the street like a diagonal toward this, kind of like where the parking lot came in for Copper Creek Court and Canfield, right at that intersection. And there is a light pole right there, I remember him running toward the light pole,” said Wilson.
He then said he continued to chase Brown, passing two cars until he suddenly stopped.
“When I passed the second one, about that same time, he stopped running and he’s at that light pole. So when he stopped, I stopped. And then he starts to turn around, I tell him to get on the ground, get on the ground,” said Wilson.
“He turns, and when he looked at me, he made like a grunting, like aggravated sound and he starts, he turns and he’s coming back toward me. His first step is coming toward me, he kind of does like a stutter step to start running. When he does that, his left hand goes into a fist and goes to his side, his right hand goes under his shirt in his waistband and he starts running at me,” he continued.
Wilson said Brown was wearing a shirt longer than his waistband and at the time he placed his hands under his waistband Brown made his first stride toward him.
“As he is coming toward me, I tell, keep telling him to get on the ground, he doesn’t,” Wilson continued.
I shoot a series of shots. I don’t know how many I shot, I just know I shot it. I know I missed a couple, I don’t know how many, but I know I hit him at least once, because I saw his body kind of jerk or flinched. I remember having tunnel vision on his right hand, that’s all, I’m focusing on that hand when I was shooting,” he noted.
Brown, however, refused to stop even with Wilson’s shooting.
“… After the last shot my tunnel vision kind of opened up. I remember seeing the smoke from the gun and I kind of looked at him and he’s still coming at me, he hadn’t slowed down.
“At this point I start backpedaling and again, I tell him to get on the ground, get on the ground, he doesn’t. I shoot another round of shots. Again, I don’t recall how many it was or if I hit him every time. I know at least once because he flinched again,” said Wilson.
Officer Wilson said Brown appeared ready to “run through the shots” even after being shot several times already.
“At this point it looked like he was almost bulking up to run through the shots, like it was making him mad that I’m shooting at him. And the face that he had was looking straight through me, like I wasn’t even there, I wasn’t even anything in his way,” said Wilson.
The officer explained that it was at this point he was certain that if Brown got to him, he would be killed.
“Well, he keeps coming at me after that again. During the pause I tell him to get on the ground, get on the ground. He still keeps coming at me, gets about 8 to 10 feet away. At this point I’m backing up pretty rapidly, I’m backpedaling pretty good because I know if he reaches me, he’ll kill me,” said Wilson.
He said Brown then leaned forward toward him as if he was getting ready to tackle him, despite being shot already.
“His hand was in a fist at his side, this one is in his waistband under his shirt, and he was like this. Just coming straight at me like he was going to run through me. And when he gets about that 8 to 10 feet away, I look down, I remember looking at my sites and firing, all I see is his head and that’s what I shot,” said Wilson.
“I don’t know how many, I know at least once because I saw the last one go into him. And then when it went into him, the demeanor on his face went blank, the aggression was gone, it was gone, I mean, I knew he stopped, the threat was stopped,” he said.
“When he fell, he fell on his face. And I remember his feet coming up, like he had so much momentum carrying him forward that when he fell, his feet kind of came up a little bit and then they rested.
“At that point I got back on the radio and said, ‘Send me a supervisor and every car you got.'”

Just remember: This is the angelic helpless teenager who’s being celebrated by rioters and protesters — a 6’4″ 300-lb hulk who tried to grab a cop’s gun and, despite having already been shot, nevertheless turned back to charge at the cop.

Those who are fanning Ferguson riots into a race war

Last night, after St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch, a Democrat, announced and explained the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown, Obama’s sons and daughters predictably rioted in the streets of Ferguson and St. Louis.
The rioters overturned and vandalized cars.
They blocked traffic on the interstate.
They transformed downtown St. Louis into a war zone.
They looted, burned, or completely destroyed small businesses, most of which are owned by minorities, including Walgreens, Little Caesers Pizza, Autozone (burned, with explosions), Beauty Town, Title Max, Family Dollar Store, O’Reilly Auto Parts (completedly engulfed by flames), a cake store owned by Natalie Dubose who was reduced to tears, and Ferguson Market and Liquor, the convenience store that Michael Brown had strong-arm robbed before he was killed by Officer Wilson. (Source: Breitbart)

Fox News’ Juan Williams noted that all the self-appointed and media-recognized Black leaders are missing in action. Williams plaintively asks:

Where is the black leadership now that a grand jury has decided not to indict the police officer that killed Michael Brown?
Where is Al Sharpton? He advertises himself as a spokesman for the best interests of black America. But he is absent.
Where is Jesse Jackson, another popular media personality who says he speaks for black America? He’s missing in action, too.

In the place of those MIA leaders, these are the blacks who fanned the flames.

Michael Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden

In the days preceding the grand jury announcement, Michael Brown’s divorced parents, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown, Sr., had issued statements calling for peaceful protests in the wake of the grand jury’s decision.
But McSpadden clearly changed her mind because after the prosecutor announced no charges would be filed against Officer Wilson, the woman went into a screaming obscenities-laden tirade: “You motherfuckers think this is a joke!”

Michael Brown’s Stepfather Louis Head

For his part, Brown’s stepfather, 38-year-old Louis Head, an ex-con who is married to McSpadden and whose rap sheet includes two felony narcotics convictions, stood atop a platform in the middle of the agitated crowd of several hundred protesters, and screamed “Burn this bitch down!” He did this at least ten times, and at one point yelled for a microphone so that he could broadcast his incendiary message beyond the range of his unamplified voice. (Source: Smoking Gun)

Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadali (D) calls for a “race war”

On MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadali, a Democrat, calls the riots a “race war” that’s long-time coming. In doing so, the senator in effect deems the riots to be an appropriate reaction. She also threatens in so many words that the riots are only a beginning and there’ll be more to come.
Maria Chappelle-Nadali
These are Chappelle-Nadali’s words:

“This is St. Louis’s race war. We didn’t have a race war like other cities throughout the U.S. This is our race war. I have to tell you that there has been systematic racism, institutionally in state government for decades, including my own state party. So what we are looking at right now is a symptom of racism that has been swept under the rug for decades…. I know people in my own party, in my own government structure who disregard things that we say and how we feel, and we are not going to allow it anymore.

Obama sends mixed messages

As the rioters overtook streets and cable TV broadcasts showed them setting fires and attacking police cars, Obama spoke from the safety and loftiness of the White House.
While pleading for calm — saying that “there’s never an excuse for violence” and asking that the grand jury’s decision be accepted — the President of the United States also talked from both sides of his mouth when he gave an excuse for the rioters by saying that their anger is an “understandable reaction” from people who believe “the law is being applied in a discriminatory fashion” and that “what we need to do is try to understand them.” (Source: White House)
Only one black man is making sense.
Rev. and Dr. James David Manning, of the ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem, New York, tells his people that if they want to progress, they must “break the demonic ancestral spirits” — the Barack Obamas, Nelson Mandelas, the Louis Farrakhans, the Jesse Jacksons, the Al Sharptons, who offer blacks nothing but “food stamps and cell phones” instead of helping them to be owners of homes and businesses. Instead of the Holy Spirit, these so-called leaders to whom blacks look up, are all demon-possessed.

Ferguson grand jury reaches decision: NO INDICTMENT

A St. Louis County grand jury, made up of nine whites and three blacks, decided not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri.
Wilson has been on paid leave and in hiding since Aug. 9.
The grand jury of 12 are the only people who have examined all of the evidence, including all three autopsies, as well as the testimonies of all the witnesses related to this case.
The law authorizes a law enforcement officer, as well as all civilians, to use force as self-defense in a dangerous situation.
The unusual timing of the grand jury’s announcement, after darkness had fallen, was a decision of prosecutors. Several local churches would provide shelter, safe haven and medical care in the event of unrest.
As officials called for peace, security preparations were beefed up around the courthouse and at other locations including the Ferguson police headquarters. Barricades were erected and Missouri state troopers were present with rifles, 3-foot batons, riot shields and other equipment. Crowds of protesters waving signs and chanting spilled into streets near the police offices. (Source: USA Today)

Stores close ahead of announcement…

Signs of rising tension...
Protests growing...

Please pray for peace. Please pray for America.

Waiting for Ferguson grand jury, St. Louis buys guns and prepares for worst

People in St. Louis, Missouri, are preparing for the worst as they await the grand jury’s decision in the police shooting death of 300-lb. Michael Brown on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis.
The shooting of the black 18-year-old by white officer Darren Wilson had sparked looting and weeks of sometimes-violent protests all through the month of August. Fearing for his life, Officer Wilson has been in hiding on paid leave ever since the shooting.
ferguson-market-looting
.
On Monday, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and called out the National Guard in advance of the decision by the grand jury.
Gun shops in the St. Louis area reportedly are selling everything they can get their hands on.
Metro Shooting Supplies, near the city’s main airport, is selling two to three times more weapons than usual in recent weeks — an average of 30 to 50 guns each day. Owner Steven King said, “We’re selling everything that’s not nailed down. Police aren’t going to be able to protect every single individual. If you don’t prepare yourself and get ready for the worst, you have no one to blame but yourself.”
Other gun dealers say their sales spikes are comparable to the increases seen soon after Brown’s death on Aug. 9. County Guns owner Adam Weinstein said, “I’ve probably sold more guns this past month than all of last year.” Last summer, Weinstein had fended off looters with an assault rifle and pistol at his storefront on West Florissant Avenue, the roadway that was the scene of many nightly protests.
Many commenters on the “St. Louis Coptalk” forum expressed fears that demonstrators will take to the streets regardless of the grand jury’s decision. A man who calls himself “A Concerned [Ferguson] Cop” issued a warning to the community to protect their families with firearms:

If you do not have a gun, get one and get one soon. We will not be able to protect you or your family. It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless commanders and politicians have neutered us. I’m serious, get a gun, get more than one, and keep one with you at all times.”

While the commenter’s status as a police officer cannot be confirmed, his warning is neither alarmist nor preposterous. None other than the FBI had released an intelligence bulletin stating a grand jury decision “will likely be exploited by some individuals to justify threats and attacks against law enforcement and critical infrastructure.”

Indeed, the protest group RbG Black Rebels tweeted a stream of violent online posts saying “We are paying $5k cash for location of Ofc. Darren Wilson. Real $, no joke, no crime we just wana get his photo an ask him a few questions,” and boasting of “combat experience,” “stockpiling” ammunition, cleaning out gun stores and being #WarReady. 

RbG Black Rebels tweet
It doesn’t help that Muslims are exploiting the Ferguson unrest by equating Brown’s death to the death of a black radical Islamist, Detroit mosque leader Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah, who was shot during an FBI raid in 2009.

Federal prosecutors say Abdullah was a separatist intent on overthrowing the U.S. government. But Dawud Walid, executive director of CAIR’s Michigan Chapter, calls Abdullah a martyr and portrays both Abdullah and Brown as victims of a national security apparatus that had “completely gone wild” and engaged in “demonizing and criminalizing Muslims.” (Michael Brown was not a Muslim. He was buried in August after a memorial service at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis.)
Kyle Shideler, director of the Washington-based watchdog group Center for Security Policy’s Threat Information Office, says that CAIR and other radical Muslims are “interested in building coalitions with other organizations in order to effect a legislative change to weaken anti-terrorism laws and weaken the ability of law enforcement to engage in counter terrorism.”
