#WhoIsBurningBlackChurches? No Evidence Fires Any Relation To Race, Some Not Arson

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 10.08.09 PM

Social media has already created the hashtag, #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches, driven by activists, already stating white supremacists are behind the fires.

But hey, facts, who cares about those, when you have a narrative to drive?

Via LA Times:

Arsonists are suspected of attacking at least two black churches across the South last week, but no arrests have been made or suspects identified, officials told the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

None of the late-night attacks have been a declared a hate crime and it’s unclear whether any of the fires are linked. Social media reports that six black churches have been burned down in arson attacks are not accurate, according to local officials’ accounts of the fires.

Keep reading…

So to break it down, of the “6 Black Churches burned':
1. Knoxville, Tenn – fire set with materials on site, according to police more like a vandalism/kids thing, doesn’t look like ‘hate crime’
2. Macon, Ga – possible arson, but ‘nothing to suggest malicious intent’ (not sure how to reconcile those two statements by police)
3. Gibson County, Tenn – ‘white’ church, hit by lightning
4. Charlotte, N.C. – Arson, but nothing to suggest hate crime, damage to youth area
5. Warrenville, S.C. – don’t know what cause was, can’t rule out an accident
6. Tallahasee, Fla – fire likely touched off by electrical short

As we go to press on this, there is another fire reported at Mount Zion AME Church in South Carolina, a church previously burnt out by the Klan many years ago. Already it is being reported as ‘7th Black Church to burn’.

EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton Had ANOTHER Email Account, She Also Used Blackberry Internet Services Mail Email Account While At State

Blackberry – remember them? Blackberrys come connected to a service called “Blackberry Internet Service” or “BIS” for short which is hosted by Blackberry for your wireless company.

The Blackberry Internet Service provides customers with access to Blackberry Messenger as well as an email address (if you set it up) to send and receive small (or you can forward it to an actual account you own.

Anyway, combing through the 3,000 or so emails released by the State Dept today I came across this whopper.  Hillary Clinton using an “att.blackberry.net” email account to correspond.


And for those of you thinking maybe she just goofed when setting up her Blackberry. Nope. Here she is cc’ing her own Blackberry e-mail account from her improper private mail server account.


Mrs Clinton has previously claimed to only have used one email account, except for a few weeks of transitioning into the start of her position in January of 2009.

Among the other issues of note in the release were Mrs. Clinton’s apparent difficulty understanding how to receive a fax and that she seemed to become aware that a cabinet meeting was being held by radio rather than through official notification.

America Has Chosen Its Favorite Fast Food Place…Chick-Fil-A


A ethic of service to customers, coupled with good food goes a long way. Chick-fil-A has come under attack from the Left because of the Christian values of its owners and it has faced boycott efforts. But America apparently doesn’t care what the Left thinks about Chick-fil-A.

Via The Blaze:

It’s the first year that Chick-fil-A was featured in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, and the Southern chicken chain took gold.

In a report released Tuesday, the ACSI asked more than 5,000 customers their opinions on fast-food chains and compiled a list of the best and the worst. Chick-fil-A finished in first place, with the highest score ever given to a fast-food chain, and Chipotle, also making its debut on the list, finishing close behind.

DOJ Faults #Ferguson PD For Protest Response…


The Mayor also failed to designate destruction zones.

Via STL Dispatch

Police trying to control the Ferguson protests and riots responded with an uncoordinated effort that sometimes violated free-speech rights, antagonized crowds with military-style tactics and shielded officers from accountability, the Justice Department says in a document obtained Monday by the Post-Dispatch.

“Vague and arbitrary” orders to keep protesters moving “violated citizens’ right to assembly and free speech, as determined by a U.S. federal court injunction,” according to a summary of a longer report scheduled for delivery this week to police brass in Ferguson, St. Louis County, St. Louis and Missouri Highway Patrol.

They already have the summary, still subject to revision, that was obtained by the newspaper.

It suggests that last year’s unrest was aggravated by long-standing community animosity toward Ferguson police, and by a failure of commanders to provide more details to the public after an officer killed Michael Brown.

“Had law enforcement released information on the officer-involved shooting in a timely manner and continued the information flow as it became available, community distrust and media skepticism would most likely have been lessened,” according to the document.

It also says that use of dogs for crowd control incited fear and anger, and the practice ought to be prohibited. And it complains that tear gas was sometimes used without warning and on people in areas from which there was no safe retreat.

Girl Scout Book Still Encourages Girls To Go To Media Matters Website, Despite Organizations Claim They Took It Out

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.13.13 PM

Girl Scouts, building character, one lie at a time…

Via The Blaze:

It was back in 2011 that a concerned mother first approached TheBlaze to expose a paragraph inside of a book printed by the Girl Scouts of the USA that encouraged young girls to visit a well-known liberal website to clear up any “media misinformation” they encountered.

Three years later, she says that the controversial directive to use Media Matters for America — a liberal “information center” aimed at “correcting conservative misinformation” — to fact-check the news is still prominently displayed inside copies of the books being sold in some of the organization’s stores, despite intense media coverage over the issue and the Girl Scouts’ claim that they reprinted the book in 2012.

“I am not all that shocked to learn the Girl Scout organization has broken yet another promise made to its members. Sadly, example after example exists of the Girl Scout organization saying one thing and doing another,” Christy Volanski, a former Girl Scouts leader, told TheBlaze. “Considering that this organization claims to ‘build girls of character,’ it is deeply concerning that Girl Scouts USA and its local councils continue to be deceitful with families and supporters.”

Anarchist Group Plans To Burn American Flags IN NYC Park Before July 4th

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 2.59.00 PM

If you didn’t already know from the language, the black anarchist flag in the bottom right corner would give them away. Many of the Black Lives Matter events involve burning the American flag. But this makes very clear again their ultimate goal is not ‘equality’ or ‘justice’, or even ‘black lives’, they’re demanding America be torn down.

Via The Blaze:

A group calling for the immediate disarmament of the New York Police Department plans to burn American flags in a Brooklyn park on Wednesday, just days before the Fourth of July holiday.

“Disarm NYPD” announced the “Burn the American Flags” event on Facebook, inviting individuals to join the organization at Fort Greene Park to “set fire to this symbol of oppression.”

Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an “isolated actor,” but a “product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.” The event originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes.

“There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all.”

Teenage Mob Crashes Walmart In Macon, GA To See How Much Damage It Can Do

Via Macon Telegraph

Surveillance video of a wee-hours ruckus at a Macon Wal-Mart on Sunday shows a teenager race inside flashing gang signs ahead of a mob of four dozen or so people who burst in and smashed merchandise.

The commotion, which caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, appears to have been planned.

Some in the crowd also snatched a man, apparently a shopper at the Zebulon Road store, from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor, Bibb County sheriff’s officials said Monday.

The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, “destroying merchandise displays and items,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident noted.

Floors in parts of the store were “coated with broken merchandise,” the report added. “The length of the store from front to rear was lined with items which had been shattered, destroyed, turned over and thrown about.”

When sheriff’s deputies got there, the crowd “began to flee into many different vehicles and leave the scene,” the report said.[…]

The teenager seen leading the rushing horde of young men and women told a Wal-Mart employee “that this was a planned event … to see how much damage they could cause,” the sheriff’s report said.

The teen, identified as 17-year-old Kharron Nathan Green, of Ashton Drive in northwest Bibb County, was arrested when he returned to the store to retrieve his cellphone.

Greece Defaults


Puerto Rico and China also in deep doo.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece slipped deeper into its financial abyss after the bailout program it has relied on for five years expired at midnight Tuesday and the country failed to repay a loan due to the International Monetary Fund, deepening fears over whether it will be able to remain in the eurozone.

With its failure to repay the roughly 1.6 billion euros ($1.8 billion) to the IMF, Greece became the first developed country to fall into arrears on payments to the fund. The last country to do so was Zimbabwe in 2001.

After Greece made a last-ditch effort to extend its bailout, eurozone finance ministers decided in a teleconference late Tuesday night that there was no way they could reach a deal before the deadline.

Black Civil Rights Icon Andrew Young: Problem Is Blacks Killing Blacks, Not Confederate Flag

Sense, but is anyone listening?

Via DC Clothesline:

Black civil rights icon and former Mayor of Atlanta Andrew Young says that debate over the Confederate flag is a divisive non-issue which completely distracts from the real problem – the fact that 93% of blacks are killed by other blacks.

Young is widely recognized as a prominent activist for the African-American civil rights movement, having been a personal friend and supporter of Martin Luther King. Young marched with King in Selma, Alabama and was with King when he was assassinated. He was also instrumental in pushing through the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Young, a former Democratic Congressman, was also the United States Ambassador to the United Nations and served as President of the National Council of Churches USA. He cannot be dismissed as an “Uncle Tom” or an apologist for right-wing Republicans.

In an interview with Fox 5 Atlanta, Young skewers the politically correct outrage mob that has targeted the Confederate flag in the aftermath of the Charleston shooting, asserting that the elimination of southern heritage will do nothing to address the problems faced by black people today.

“The challenge for us is not to wipe out our past history but to learn to live together in the future,” said Young.

State Supreme Court Rules To Remove 10 Commandments Statue At Oklahoma State Capitol…


Ten Commandment displays at courts and capitols have been upheld in the past as foundations of the law. A depiction of Moses with the commandments is still on the U.S. Supreme Court, but Moses is placed there amongst other lawgivers as well.

Via Daily Signal

By a margin of 7-2, the Oklahoma State Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday to remove the State Capitol’s Ten Commandments monument. The State Supreme Court ruled that the monument is “obviously religious in nature and are an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths,” and therefore defies separation of church and state.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt said the monument was constitutional and cited a similar monument in Texas the U.S. Supreme Court deemed constitutional.

“Quite simply, the Oklahoma Supreme Court got it wrong,” Pruitt said in a statement. “The court completely ignored the profound historical impact of the Ten Commandments on the foundation of Western Law.”

As a result, Pruitt said his office will request a rehearing and attempt to repeal the verdict.

The case was originally filed by four plaintiffs from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Oklahoma on the basis that the monument violates the Oklahoma State Constitution, which prohibits public funding to go toward supporting a particular sect of religion.

“I think that at the end of the day it is the right decision simply because it acknowledges limits on the government’s power to effectively decide what religious edicts are right and wrong,” said Brady Henderson, legal director for the ACLU of Oklahoma.

The ruling has received pushback from state officials, including Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin.

“Gov. Fallin is disappointed with the court’s opinion that a privately funded monument acknowledging the historical importance of the Ten Commandments is not allowed on Capitol grounds,” said Fallin’s spokesman Alex Weintz. “She will consult with the attorney general to evaluate the state’s legal options moving forward.”

Previous attempts have been made to remove the monument as well. Last March, American Atheists attempted to file a suit to abolish the monument. However, the case was rejected because the court found the plaintiffs did “not have standing to bring the legal action.”

Obama To Announce US, Cuba To Open Embassies In Each Other’s Capitols, Restore Relations


In the time of Obama, enemies are treated as friends, friends he treats as enemies.

Via ABC:

President Barack Obama will announce Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba have finalized an agreement to reopen embassies in each other’s capitals, a major step in ending hostilities between the Cold War foes, a senior administration official said.

The U.S. and Cuba have been negotiating the reestablishment of embassies following the historic December announcement that they would move to restore ties after a half-century of animosity.

For Obama, ending the U.S. freeze with Cuba is central to his foreign policy legacy as he nears the end of his presidency. Obama has long touted the value of direct engagement with global foes and has argued that the U.S. embargo on the communist island just 90 miles south of Florida was ineffective.

The official insisted on anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter ahead of the president.

State Department To Release 3,000 Pages Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Tonight…

Via Stars and Stripes

The State Department said it would release about 3,000 pages of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton’s correspondence from 2009, her first year as the nation’s top diplomat, on Tuesday night.

State Department spokesman John Kirby said the emails, covering March through December 2009, would be posted online.

“There’s been nothing but nearly nonstop work on this” since the last group of emails was released, Kirby told reporters at a State Department briefing in which he acknowledged the inconvenient timing. “You have to understand the enormity of the task here. It is a lot of stuff to go through.”

The release comes as part of a court mandate that the agency release batches of Clinton’s email correspondence from her time as secretary of state every 30 days starting June 30. The goal is for the department to publicly unveil 55,000 pages of her emails by Jan. 29, 2016. They were sent from the personal email address Clinton used when she was secretary.

Video: Black Friend Of Dylann Roof, “Church Wasn’t His Primary Target”, Never Racist With Me

This video has gotten very little play in the media. The friend, Christon Scriven, is black and says that Dylann Roof was never racist with him. He also notes that his original target was the University of Charleston, and that maybe he didn’t attack there because of the security. In other words, maybe he saw the church as an easier target.

Scriven says he hid the gun, but that because of his own problems with the law, he couldn’t be around guns, so had to give the gun back.

Statue Of Former Democrat SC Governor “Pitchfork” Ben Tillman On State House Grounds Vandalized…


Time to dispatch the DOJ hate crime squad.

Via The State

The statue on the S.C. State House grounds of a former governor and senator widely known as a white supremacist has been vandalized.

It was not known around noon Tuesday when the red paint was thrown at the statue of “Pitchfork” Ben Tillman, splattering paint down one of the statue’s legs and base.

Efforts to reach law enforcement officials about the vandalism were unsuccessful immediately after it was discovered.

Security has been increased on the State House grounds in recent days because of tensions over the Confederate flag there. Many, including Gov. Nikki Haley, have called for the flag’s removal, following the June 17 killings of nine African-Americans in a Charleston church. A 21-year-old white Columbia area man has been charged.

There have been at least two arrests connected with the flag in recent days – one early Saturday, after someone climbed a pole and took the Confederate flag down; and a second person Monday night after an alleged scuffle with anti-flag demonstrators. Both people face charges.

Tillman is a former governor and U.S. senator whose political career spanned 1890 to 1918.

He promoted white supremacy, including lynching and denial of voting rights to blacks and women. Tillman also was a participant in the massacre of black militia members during Reconstruction.

Al-Qaeda Frees More Than 1,000 Prisoners From Yemeni Prison…


Via The Hill:

More than 1,000 prisoners — including suspected al Qaeda terrorists — escaped during clashes at a jail in central Yemen on Tuesday, according to reports.

The incident, the biggest in a series of prison breaks that have freed al Qaeda militants in recent years, comes amid a breakdown in Yemen’s security and stability since the Arab Spring.

“Groups of al Qaeda supporters … today attacked the central prison in the city of Taiz and more than 1,200 of the dangerous prisoners escaped,” a security official told state news agency Saba, according to Reuters.

Yemen is currently in the midst of an insurgency by Iran-backed Shiite Houthi rebels, who took over the capital of Sanaa last fall from the Western-backed government.

The U.S. was forced to withdraw troops and diplomatic personnel from Yemen in February, and al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has sought to make gains in the chaos. Its leader, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, was killed in a suspected U.S. drone strike earlier this month.

The U.S. is currently supporting a Saudi-led military coalition that has been conducting airstrikes against the Houthis, as well as units in Yemen’s army that are siding with the Shiite-rebels.

The security official said army forces linked to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh allowed the prisoners to escape as the Houthis advanced.
