Baltimore Authorities Combing Evidence For “Destruction Zone” Participants, Vows No Impunity…

Would be easier to exclude those that didn’t participate.

Via Baltimore Sun

More than two months after Baltimore erupted in rioting, teams of police and federal investigators are still combing evidence in a hunt for those responsible for the destruction and looting.

The Baltimore Police Department has formed a task force to identify suspects, while the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Drug Enforcement Administration have called in additional agents to handle the work.

“The cases are particularly important because many of the people who were involved in committing these crimes acted with the assumption that they had impunity,” said Rod J. Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for Maryland. “There is a sense of urgency.” […]

More than 200 people were taken into custody and held in jail for close to two days under an emergency rule imposed by the governor, but half had to be let go because police had not filed charging papers. They joined 35 who were arrested when protests downtown became violent April 25.[..]

Among them is Wayne Gray, who said he took his 2-year-old son to a protest in April. Representing himself recently in District Court, Gray, 47, wondered aloud how he had ended up in front of a judge while many fellow protesters had gone free.

Called to testify, Officer Garfield O’Toole, a member of the Police Department’s SWAT team, described a chaotic scene during the protest at Pratt and Howard streets.

A large crowd had gathered, and officers formed a long line. O’Toole’s team was ordered by commanders to pull three individuals back from the crowd and they were taken to a police transport wagon.

Gray noted that there was a large crowd and asked the officer, “Why just me?”

Officer Israel Villodas, another member of a tactical extraction team, testified that many in the crowd did not move even as orders to disperse were coming from the police helicopter and officers with bullhorns on the ground.

Judge Jack I. Lesser found Gray guilty of disorderly conduct and imposed a 10-day jail sentence. Gray begged not to be taken into custody right away, saying he needed to make arrangements for his son to be picked up from day care, move the car he drove to the courthouse and get his medications.

Lesser ordered him sent straight to jail.

“I made a mistake and misinterpreted my constitutional right,” Gray said as he was handcuffed by sheriff’s deputies.

DHS Chief Refuses To Admit “Sanctuary Cities” Pose A Threat To Citizens After Illegal Immigrant Kills San Fran Woman…

jeh johnson

Via Washington Examiner:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson declined to say Monday whether cities offering “sanctuary” to dangerous illegal immigrants are posing a safety threat in the United States, just days after a criminal alien who was given sanctuary in San Francisco shot and killed a California woman.

Johnson was asked if the death of Kathryn Steinle last Thursday proved that sanctuary cities were part of the problem when it comes to removing dangerous immigrants. But Johnson didn’t answer directly, and instead said generally that the federal government is slowly starting to work more effectively with state and local governments on deportation matters.

“In my view, this type of situation highlights the importance of the direction where we are headed,” he said when asked about the California murder.

Johnson explained that many local jurisdictions were “resisting cooperating” with DHS under its Secure Communities program, which was aimed at deporting criminals behind bars. DHS replaced it in November with a new prioritized list of deportable aliens.

Black Memphis Professor Who Left Job Under Cloud For Racist Comments Resurfaces At Another School

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 9.59.43 PM

Looks like the new school hired her BECAUSE of her anti-white comments, even though many of their students are white.

Via Fox News:

A Memphis professor who left her job under a cloud after a series of racist tweets and Facebook posts has resurfaced at a school across town, where some of her new faculty peers are not happy to have her as a colleague.

Zandria Robinson, who taught sociology at University of Memphis until resigning on June 11, had previously posted on Facebook and Twitter that she did not want her daughter attending school with “snotty privileged whites,” apparently ramped up her social media rhetoric after leaving the job. In a series of tweets that began June 26, nine days after white racist Dylann Roof gunned down nine African Americans in a Charleston, S.C., church, Robinson wrote that “whiteness is most certainly and inevitably terror” and said she expected to see “thinkpieces about how more mental health services could prevent white people from acting how they are conditioned to act.”

Officials at Rhodes College announced Robinson’s hiring last week, and praised her for her “provocative” comments, some of which were first reported by the website SoCawlege.

#BlackLivesMatter Idiots Vandalize…Statue Of Columbus?

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 9.41.13 PM

Because hey, he’s evil,even though he had absolutely nothing to do with black people.

Via Boston Herald:

The Christopher Columbus statue in the North End was vandalized yesterday — with red paint dumped on its head and “Black Lives Matter” emblazoned on its base — in a defacing that left one local leader frustrated the cherished site was used for protest.

“For someone who was in the neighborhood, I certainly sympathize with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ discussions,” said state Rep. Aaron Michlewitz. “But, I think there’s a better way to get your point across than to vandalize public property — even with the complexities that surround Christopher Columbus’ history.”

Daunasia Yancey, founder and lead organizer at Black Lives Matter Boston, said her group wasn’t behind it, but “we fully support it.”

The Boston Parks Department found the defaced statue early yesterday morning, and it was quickly cleaned up.

Top American Indian Scholar Outed As Fake Indian

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 9.15.16 PM

Why did both she and Rachel Dolezal fake their identities? Because it meant better opportunities to get a job teaching in their chosen field.

Via Daily Caller:

Just a few weeks after Rachel Dolezal transfixed the nation with her bogus claims to black heritage, yet another professor stands accused of falsely claiming a different racial identity to advance her career.

Andrea Smith, a professor of media and cultural studies at the University of California at Riverside, has started to draw attention in the wake of the Dolezal incident from those who say she has for years falsely claimed to have Cherokee blood. The case is arguably much more significant, though, because while Dolezal was a relatively undistinguished academic at Eastern Washington University, Smith is recognized as a significant scholar in her field. She routinely appears as a featured scholar at major events and has written books that were well-received by her colleagues (though others may question the broader worth of works like Conquest: Sexual Violence And American Indian Genocide).

Her career has largely been defined by her supposed American Indian identity. Besides her academic work, she also helped create the organization INCITE!, which describes itself as a collection of “radical feminists of color.” She’s also been active in the Indian group Women of All Red Nations (WARN).

But according to many, Smith’s Cherokee identity is a complete sham. Much of the attack on Smith is coming from an anonymous, but well-sourced, Tumblr blog, Andrea Smith Is Not A Cherokee. She has also been called out in The Daily Beast.

The Beast article quotes David Cornsilk, a Cherokee genealogist, who says he actually researched Smith’s heritage back in 1993 (while she was still an undergraduate) at her request and found absolutely no evidence of Cherokee heritage. Cornsilk says Smith actually approached him a second time in 1997 to look again, allegedly telling him “her employment depended on finding proof of Indian heritage.” Once again, Cornsilk found nothing.

But that apparently didn’t deter Smith, who simply continued to claim Cherokee heritage directly or allow others to attribute that heritage to her.

Bill Clinton Limo Service To Hermes Cost Taxpayers $8,852

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 8.59.42 PM

It’s just like Target, lots of ‘everyday Americans’ there. And why is the State Department paying for this?

Via Free Beacon:

The limousines that took Bill Clinton to Hermès in Paris cost taxpayers over $8,000.

The State Department picked up the tab for the multimillionaire former president’s transportation costs during his trip to Paris last month, government contracts show. The agency paid Biribin Limousines $8,852 for rental cars for Clinton during his stay.

As a former president, Clinton receives a Secret Service detail, whose hotel, transportation, and security costs are covered by taxpayers.

Biribin Limousines is an international chauffeur company with “prestigious references.”

“With exceptional customers historically composed of national and international institutions, corporations, personality of the World of Arts and Fashion, but also the partner of major events that make the news,” the company said.

While in Paris, Clinton was dropped off at the luxury boutique Hermès by a “five-car convoy.” Clinton was said to be “probably buying the store,” after an hour-long private visit.

Clinton’s wife, Hillary, is vying for the Democratic nomination for president as a champion of “everyday Americans.”

Jeb Bush And Other Candidates Rush To Distance Themselves From Donald Trump Comments About Illegal Aliens…

Jeb

The truth hurts. Trump specifically noted ‘some’ were committed the crimes, and others did not, a point left out of many of the news stories covering his comments (including this one).

Via CSM

The crowded and ideologically diverse field of Republican presidential candidates has found one thing they mostly agree on: Donald Trump does not speak for the majority of Republicans.

Candidate after candidate used appearances on Sunday talk shows to denounce Mr. Trump and distance themselves from him after the billionaire real estate mogul criticized Mexicans and immigrants who come to the US illegally as “rapists” and “killers.”

“They’re bringing drugs,” Trump said while announcing his presidential bid last month. “They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

Former New York Gov. George Pataki was the first GOP candidate to denounce Trump, first in a tweet and later in a press release, describing the remarks as “sad and divisive.”[…]

GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor who has a Mexican wife, told the Associate Press he is personally offended by Trump’s remarks.

“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think,” he told reporters after marching in Fourth of July parades in New Hampshire.

And other Republican candidates are now following suit.

US Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida called the comments “not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive,” in a statement released last Friday.[…]

Some candidates have come out in support of Trump, however, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

Sen. Cruz appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in an interview that aired on Sunday, saying: “I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need to address illegal immigration.”

“The Washington cartel doesn’t want to address that. The Washington cartel doesn’t believe we need to secure our borders,” he added. “The Washington cartel supports amnesty and I think amnesty’s wrong, and I salute Donald Trump for focusing on it. He has a colorful way of speaking. It’s not the way I speak, but I’m not going to engage in the media’s game of throwing rocks and attacking other Republicans. I’m just not going to do it.”

Bernie Sanders: The Majority Of Gun Owners Are Responsible And Obey The Law

We, of course, know this to be true, but it runs against narrative for socialist Sanders to echo it.

Via Washington Examiner:

Vermont liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday that the majority of gun owners are responsible and obey the law.

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Sanders said that a gun manufacturer should be no more responsible for a murder performed by their product than a hammer manufacturer is responsible “if someone beat someone over the head with a hammer.”

Sanders was taking on detractors who have pointed to a bill he voted for that shields firearms manufacturers from being sued by gun violence victims. Presidential rival Hillary Clinton made reference to this bill in New Hampshire Saturday, saying that it was the “height of irresponsibility not to talk about it.”

Sanders noted Sunday that he has a pretty poor grade of a D- from the National Rifle Association and has voted for the assault weapons ban.

Sanders suggested that he could broker a “serious debate and action on guns,” but that it won’t happen if “we have extreme positions on both sides.”

“I come form a state that has virtually no gun control but the people of my state understand that guns in Vermont aren’t the same thing as guns in Chicago,” he said.

The senator has been drawing big crowds in Iowa and other places, but still lags behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the polls.

AP: Bill Cosby Admitted In 2005 To Getting Quaaludes To Give To Women With Whom He Wanted To Have Sex

Bill-Cosby-denver

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby admitted in a 2005 deposition that he obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with. He admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman.

The Associated Press went to court to compel the release of the documents, and they were made public Monday. Cosby’s lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client.

The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.

Cosby settled that sexual-abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms in 2006. More than a dozen women have since accused him of sexually assaulting them. Some believe they were also drugged. Cosby has never been criminally charged, and most of the accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.

Cosby’s lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls.

Senior U.S. State Department Official: It Feels “Weird” To Be Defending Iran So Much…

CJPM0pgWoAARzKv

Treason feels “weird,” good to know.

VIENNA (Reuters) – It’s always awkward to defend your enemies.

But that’s the position U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration has found itself in with Iran as it pushes for an historic accord that would end a 12-year nuclear standoff.

Tehran and Washington, which have called each other the “Great Satan” and a member of the “Axis of Evil” during 36 years of hostility, are more used to exchanging insults than defending each other. The two foes cut diplomatic ties after Iranian revolutionaries seized 52 hostages in Tehran’s U.S. embassy during the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Yet for a month now the U.S. State Department has been defending Iran from suggestions that it was on the verge of violating a requirement to reduce its low-enriched uranium stockpile under a 2013 interim nuclear with major powers. […]

One senior U.S. official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, acknowledged that the U.S. defense of Iranian compliance was “weird” and did not come naturally.

“Iran has done a lot of bad things in Syria and across the Middle East, and still does. It’s holding Americans hostages. But the fact is, it’s complying with the JPOA.”

Former CNN Anchor Lynne Russell: The Second Amendment Saved My Life…

Update to this story. Just a terrific story on one of the important reasons for the Second Amendment.

Via Fox:

Lynne Russell thanks the right to keep and bear arms for keeping her and her husband alive during an armed robbery on June 30th. The former CNN anchor and Chuck de Caro, formerly a CNN reporter, were held at gun point in an Albuquerque Motel 6 room by felon Tomorio Walton.

What ensued was a stand-off that left Walton dead and de Caro shot three times. Russell was not injured in the shootout.

Russell told FOX411 that having a gun “absolutely” saved their lives.

“The discussion over the debate to own a gun is just ridiculous. As Americans we have the right to bear arms and as humans the right to protect ourselves. I’m sure that the man who shot my husband did not have a gun permit. Criminals will always have guns. The rest of us legally obtain our gun permits.”

Russell and de Caro have been long time advocates for carrying guns legally. The author of “Hell on Heels” explains the decision should be an individual one, and those who do not want to carry should not weigh in on the gun control conversation.

“If you don’t want to carry please don’t. Then, shut the f–k up about it. Make your own decisions. “

Obviously Fake News Site Causes Outrage Over White Supremacist “Massacre” Of Black Teens In Myrtle Beach On Saturday …

The doltish #BlackLivesMatter supporters will fall for just about anything.

Via Myrtle Beach Sun News

“Despite what was published on a website that has become popular in recent weeks, there was no “hate crime” or “massacre” in Myrtle Beach on Saturday.

An article published on Newswatch33.com said that a group of white supremacists beat and killed two black teenagers, critically injuring a third, during a July Fourth festival on Saturday in Myrtle Beach.

The teens were said to have been wearing anti-Confederate flag T-shirts, according to the article. The article further states that the group of white supremacists was taken into custody. The article is accompanied by what appears to be a cell phone photograph taken during Memorial Day weekend near Landmark Resort while a traffic loop was in place on Ocean Boulevard.

Myrtle Beach police have no record of the alleged incident occurring this weekend.

“We are aware of the story and preparing a post on social media to advise our citizens and [guests],” police spokesman Lt. Joey Crosby said.

The post to the police department’s Facebook page read that they were aware of the false news story being circulated on social media.

“If you have seen the story or headline of ‘Independence Day Massacre: 2 Black Teens Beaten To Death By White Supremacists, 1 In Critical Condition’ that occurred in Myrtle Beach, this story is false and did not occur,” the Facebook post read. “Please continue to have a safe and fun week!”

Horry County deputy coroner Darris Fowler said there were no such deaths that have occurred in Myrtle Beach.

“I can assure you that I would know about that,” Fowler said.

The website was created on June 18 through GoDaddy.com, according to a domain search online.

The site appears to be filled with fake news articles. Other headlines seen on the site include “ISIS Use Shark Attacks As Part Of Terrorism Plot” and “Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Offered Movie And Book Deal.”

Muslim Who Killed NJ Teen Brendon Tevlin Charged With Murder And Terrorism

Why did they not charge the other two? I’m going to assume that they gave up some information. What happened to the fourth man?

The media from the start has tended to ignore this case, but additionally they have ignored that there were others involved. I hope we don’t have cause to regret the authorities decision to give the two a pass…

Via NJ.com:

The man accused of killing Livingston teenager Brendan Tevlin last year has been indicted on terrorism charges, marking the first time the statute has been used in a murder case in New Jersey history.

An Essex County grand jury found enough evidence to charge Ali Muhammad Brown twice under the little-used law, along with murder, robbery, carjacking and other offenses, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said in a statement.

Brown, who says he is Muslim, told investigators after his arrest in July that he had killed Tevlin and a trio of men in the Seattle area as “vengeance” for lives lost due to U.S. military action in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and other parts of the Islamic world.

“All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life,” he said, according to documents charging him with murder in Washington.

Murray sought special permission from Acting Attorney General John G. Hoffman to present the charge to the grand jury.

Chicago Police Chief’s Not-So-Genius Solution To War Zone-Like Violence: More Gun Control Laws!…

Does he realize he’s the police superintendent in Chicago?

Via Guardian:

Ten people, including a seven-year-old boy, were killed in shootings in Chicago over the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Police superintendent Garry McCarthy acknowledged that his department’s decision to increase the police presence in the city by 30% in anticipation of holiday violence had not prevented the killings – and called for more restrictive gun laws. Last year 14 people were killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend.

“If you think that putting more cops on the street would make a difference, then take a look at the fact that we put a third more manpower on the street for this weekend,” McCarthy said.

“What’s the result? We’re getting more guns. Well, that’s great,” he said. “It’s not stopping the violence. And it’s not going to stop the violence until criminals are held accountable and something is done to stem the flow of these guns into our city.”

The youngest person killed this weekend was Amari Brown, seven, who was shot on Saturday night while watching fireworks with his father. McCarthy said that the gunfire was aimed at Brown’s father – who was described as a “ranking gang member” by police. A 26-year-old woman was also struck in the shooting.
