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

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 5.28.21 PM

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? Now they seem to be painting it as a robbery, when previously they said that there was no attempt at robbery, that Brown had gone up to the window of the car and just shot him.

The media from the start has tended to ignore this case, but additionally they have ignored that there were others involved.

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.

Crowd In Cincinnati Attacks Police With Fireworks And Bottles, Man Stomped Allegedly For Being White

Via IJR:

While the July 4th weekend may have gone peacefully in many communities, the same could not be said for Cincinnati.

The city’s Fountain Square was the site of a hip hop and electronica concert Saturday night. But the situation became violent when a large crowd began tossing fireworks and bottles at police, which wounded several police officers:

In an anonymous posting on the website Cincinnati vs. Everyone, someone claiming to be an officer described how he and his colleagues then donned helmets and shields and began assembling in riot formation. Here’s what he claims that they saw next:

“So we see ahead a scuffle begin and think it’s just a fight. Well not so much, it was like 40 v. 1. I saw 40 v. 1, it was 40 black youths stomping the crap out of one unlucky male white. He didn’t do anything to deserve this beating except be white.”

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.

BREAKING: South Carolina Senate Votes To Remove Confederate Flag From Statehouse Grounds…

Confederat flag SC Statehouse

Elected officials caving in to hysteria… shocker!

Via WACH 57

The South Carolina Senate has voted to remove the Confederate flag from a pole on Statehouse grounds.

The 37-3 vote Monday allows the state to remove the flag and the flagpole where it flies as soon as it passes the House and is signed by Gov. Nikki Haley.

The bill must pass a two-thirds vote, which is likely to be held Tuesday.

Monday’s vote comes less than a week after the 15th anniversary of South Carolina taking the flag off the Capitol dome where it flew since the early 1960s and moving it to beside a monument honoring Confederate soldiers.

Lawmakers had largely ignored the flag until the killing of nine black people during a Bible study at a historic African-American church on June 17.

South Carolina state senators also rejected an amendment that would allow the Confederate flag to continue to fly outside the Statehouse — but only on Confederate Memorial Day. They’ve also voted down a suggestion to leave the fate of the flag up to a popular vote. They’re continuing debate on other amendments dealing with the future of the flag.

One Republican senator who wants to leave the flag in place says the flag has been misused by people like Dylann Roof, who’s charged with nine counts of murder for last month’s shootings at a historic black church.

But among the senators who believe the flag no longer represents the valor of Southern soldiers are a white lawmaker who, for decades, fought attempts to remove the flag from Statehouse grounds, and a black senator whose family was also in South Carolina during the Civil War.

Republican Sen. Larry Martin, who is white, says he changed his mind after the shootings of nine blacks at the church in Charleston.

Sen. Darrell Jackson, who is black, helped write the compromise that took the flag off the Statehouse dome in 2000 and put it on a pole in the capitol’s front lawn. He says he regrets that he didn’t go further to get rid of the flag completely.

White House Blames GOP For Illegal Immigrant Killing San Francisco Woman

Nothing is ever the fault of the Obama administration.

Via The Hill

The White House on Monday defended its immigration policies and blasted Republicans following the killing of a San Francisco woman — allegedly by an undocumented immigrant.

When asked if the case was a failure of the administration’s enforcement policies, White House press secretary Josh Earnest chided Republicans for blocking a bipartisan immigration bill that would have boosted funding for border security.

“I recognize that people want to play politics with this,” Earnest said. “The fact is the president has done everything within his power to make sure that we’re focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety.”

Kathryn Steinle, 32, was shot and killed Wednesday at a popular tourist destination in San Francisco. The suspect, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, had multiple felony convictions and had been deported five times to Mexico.

Earnest faulted the “political efforts of Republicans” for blocking “the kind of investment that we would like to make in securing our border and keeping our communities safe.”

The spokesman refused to comment on the details of the case, but he pointed to Obama’s executive actions on immigration launched last fall, which instructed the Department of Homeland Security to prioritize the deportation of people who are considered “public safety threats.”

“We have started to make changes in terms of structuring and staffing … to ensure that our law enforcement efforts are focused on felons and not on families,” he said. “These efforts would be significantly augmented had Republicans not blocked common sense immigration reform.”

After Months Of Avoiding Media, Hillary To Sit Down For TV Interview…With Reporter Who Went To Her Aide’s Wedding…

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 2.31.02 PM

Via Daily Caller:

For the first time since her April 12th presidential campaign announcement, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will sit down for a national television interview.

According to a report, Clinton will sit down Tuesday with CNN senior political correspondent Brianna Keilar in her inaugural appearance, with the full interview airing on “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer and “Anderson Cooper 360″ Tuesday evening.

In all, Clinton will have gone 86 days without a national media sit down since her campaign launch, having only done interviews in early primary states with local reporters instead.

Keilar’s exclusive with the Democratic frontrunner will take place in Iowa City, Iowa.

The Clinton campaign has had a contentious relationship with the press during the first three months of her campaign, with the situation coming to a head on Saturday when the press was kept away from the former first lady by a rope line as she walked in a 4th of July parade in New Hampshire.

Late Sunday, Fox News media reporter Howard Kurtz reported that Clinton would begin doing national television interviews in the coming week.

Who is Brianna Keilar? Why, here she is, as a guest at the wedding of Clinton operatives, along with other CNN folks, Dan Merica and Ashley Killough.

Detroit Leaders of Al Sharpton’s Group Demand Kid Rock Denounce Confederate Flag…

And if he doesn’t they will boycott a museum exhibit about Kid Rock that Kid Rock funded, or something.

(DFP) – About a dozen members of a Detroit activist group called for Kid Rock to distance himself from the Confederate flag at a protest this morning in front of a Midtown museum where an exhibit bears the country-hip-hop-rock superstar’s name.

The controversial flag, flown by the South during the Civil War and associated with racism and slavery, has previously appeared in photos with the musician from Michigan. Robert James Ritchie, 44, has always been a fan of southern rock and has performed in front of the flag — as well as the American flag.

The Rev. Charles Williams II, president of the Michigan Chapter of the National Action Network and pastor at King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit, issued a statement Monday calling for Ritchie to keep the flag out of his performances.

Williams at the demonstration called Kid Rock “the home-town hero who is a zero with the Confederate flag” and asked museum officials to take his name off the exhibit Kid Rock funded if he doesn’t denounce the flag.

He and others met this morning outside the Detroit Historical Museum on 501 Woodward Ave.

“How in the hell can Kid Rock represent Detroit and wave that flag just generating millions and millions in ticket sales — a flag that represents genocide to most of Detroit?” asked Sam Riddle, political director of the National Action Network.

Dem Rep. Alan Grayson Calls For A “New” Leftist “Declaration of Independence”…

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 12.20.53 PM

Yeah, we’ll pass.

Dem Rep. Grayson Via Huffington Post:

The original Declaration of Independence, declared 239 years ago, was a philippic against King George and his tyranny. I am no fan of King George. But the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution laid most of his tyranny to rest, and what remained was then laid to rest with him.

We need a new declaration of independence. FDR took a stab at this, with his “Four Freedoms.” Freedom of speech. Freedom of worship. Freedom from want. Freedom from fear. That’s a good start.

But now, eight decades later, we need to declare our independence from other forms of oppression.

We hereby declare our independence from bigotry, in all its evil forms. We declare our independence from racism, sexism, homophobia, language discrimination and chauvinism. Everyone has equal rights, no matter where you’re from, what you look like, what language you speak, and whom you love. Everyone deserves respect.

We hereby declare our independence from narrow-minded, extremist or violent religious fundamentalism. We live in a land where church and state are separate. Religious belief, no matter how sincere, is no license to dictate to others whether to terminate a pregnancy, whether to use contraception, or whom to marry. Earlier this year, I placed my hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution; I didn’t place my hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible.

We hereby declare our independence from the greedy. Malefactors of great wealth have no right to buy and sell elected officials thorough the legalized bribery of “independent expenditures.” They have no right to despoil our land and our water, the air we breathe and the food we eat. They have no right to manipulate or gut our laws in order to increase their lucre. They have no right to jack up the price of what we buy, or determine what we see on TV or on our computer screens.

Illegal Immigrant Killer Went To San Francisco Because He Knew It “Was A Sanctuary City Where He Would Not Be Pursued” – Update: All Four Dem Presidential Candidates Support “Sanctuary Cities” For Illegals…

San Fran $15.00

Lot of people shrugging in San Fran today.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — In an interview you’ll see only on ABC7 News, the man accused of shooting and killing a young woman at San Francisco’s Pier 14 admitted to the crime and talked about where he got the gun.

Francisco Sanchez didn’t recall every detail because he says he doesn’t remember everything that happened. But in the 45 minute jailhouse interview, he revealed how the shooting went down and why he kept returning to the United States after being deported numerous times.

Steinle was shot and killed near the Ferry Building on Wednesday. Sanchez tells ABC7 News that the shooting was an accident. He says he was wandering on Pier 14 after taking sleeping pills he found in a dumpster.

Barnard: “Where did you get the gun?”
Sanchez: “In the ground. When the… when the… over there in the bench, um, um, I put my leg and I see the one T-shirt and then see over there something like that.”

He claims a gun was wrapped in that T-shirt and that it went off when he picked it up.

“Then suddenly I heard that boom boom, three times,” Sanchez said.

He claims he kicked the gun into the San Francisco Bay, lit up a cigarette, and walked off, not knowing he shot someone until he was arrested by police hours later. Sanchez reportedly first told police he was shooting at sea lions.

He appeared frail and nervous when he talked about returning to the U.S. after being deported back to his native Mexico five times.

Barnard: “Why did you keep coming back to the U.S., why did you come back to San Francisco?”
Sanchez: “Because I was looking for jobs in the restaurant or roofing, landscaping, or construction.”

Sanchez said he knew San Francisco was a sanctuary city where he would not be pursued by immigration officials.

Sanchez: “Yeah, I’m feeling sorry for everybody.”
Barnard: “You feel sorry for everybody? Including Kate Steinle’s family?”
Sanchez: “Yeah.”

Update: Friendly reminder.

Via Daily Caller:

All four of the Democratic candidates for president have expressed support for sanctuary cities, a controversial policy that is being blamed for the recent release of a five times-deported illegal alien who allegedly murdered a woman in broad daylight in San Francisco.

As a senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, twice made public statements backing sanctuary cities. In 2008, she and two other Democratic candidates, Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Virginia U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, voted against an amendment that would block federal funds from going to sanctuary cities. And last year, as governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley announced that the Baltimore city jail would stop honoring requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to hold illegal aliens until they could be deported.

Sanctuary city policies, which are on the books in about 140 cities, are coming under scrutiny following Wednesday’s shooting death of 32-year-old San Francisco resident Kate Steinle.

Steinle was walking on Pier 14 with her father and a friend when 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez allegedly shot her. The Mexican national, who was last deported in 2009 and had a rap sheet that included seven felonies, was in ICE custody as recently as March following an arrest for felony re-entry.

Hillary: the government was failing when they enforced the law, and kept future illegal alien voters for me out of the country…

Via Breitbart:

San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy is receiving harsh criticism after Wednesday’s murder of 32-year-old Kate Steinle by Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a illegal immigrant who has been deported five times and has been convicted of seven felonies.

On Sept. 6, 2007 at Dartmouth College while debating during her last attempt to become president, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton supported sanctuary cities saying they help ensure the “personal safety and security of all the citizens.”

Clinton said, “If local law enforcement begins to act like immigration officers what that means is that you will have people not reporting crimes. You will have people hiding from the police. And I think that is a real direct threat to the personal safety and security of all the citizens. So this is a result of the failure of the federal government and that’s where it needs to be fixed.”

When pressed if that means she supports the sanctuary cities policy Clinton replied, “Well, I don’t think there is any choice.”

Chicago 4th Of July Violence: 30 Shot In 8 hours Overnight, 7 Year Old Boy And Two Men Killed…Update: Final Total: 10 Killed, 54 Wounded

july-4th-violence-chicago-photos-20150702-020

Not a mass shooting worthy of nationwide attention or use as a rallying cry to take down the Confederate Flag.

Via Chicago Tribune

A 7-year-old boy and two men were killed overnight and at least 27 other people were injured during an 8-hour stretch that started not long after dark.

Someone opened fire in the 1100 block of North Harding Street about 11:55 p.m., hitting the 7-year-old boy and a 26-year-old woman.

The boy was with his father after spending the day at his grandmother’s house at a July 4th celebration.

The boy was hit in the right side of the chest and was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

His grandmother, Vedia Hailey, said she learned about the shooting when she got a phone call from her daughter — Amari’s mother — who had spoken to his father.

“It’s crazy. Who would shoot a 7-year-old in the chest?” Hailey, 52, said in an incredulous tone as tears streamed down her face early Sunday outside Stroger Hospital. “Who would do that to a baby? When is it going to stop?”

He was later pronounced dead, according to police.

The woman was hit in the chest and was also taken to Stroger where her condition stabilized.

Police officers blocked off an intersection of Harding Avenue and Thomas Street with yellow and red tape. The crime scene extended half block on Harding north of Thomas.

Several neighbors gathered at each side of the scene, watching police officers.

Hollie Williams, 38, a nearby resident, walked up to the yellow tape, wondering if a friend who lived on the block was the one who got shot.

She said she was washing dishes in the kitchen when her 9-year-old son ran in, scared, saying he heard gunshots.

“I didn’t even hear anything with all the fireworks,” Williams said. “I was shocked he knew the difference between gunshots and fireworks.”

Civil War Statue Vandalized At UNC-Chapel Hill With “KKK” And “Black Lives Matter”…

No, this is not vandalism… it’s celebrating diversity!

Via WRAL:

A Civil War memorial statue at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was found vandalized Sunday morning with the words “black lives matter.”

The statue, known as Silent Sam, was erected in 1913 as a monument to 321 alumni who died in the Civil War and students who joined the Confederate Army, according to the university’s website.

Vandals used black spray paint to deface the statue, which also had the words “KKK” and “murderer” written on it. No suspects or arrests have been made.

Rick White, the school’s associate vice chancellor of Communications and Public Affairs, released the following statement Sunday:

“We understand that the issue of race and place is both emotional and, for many, painful. Carolina is working hard to ensure we have a thoughtful, respectful and inclusive dialogue on the issue,” he said. “The extensive discussions with the Carolina community this past year by the Board of Trustees and University leadership, and the work we will be doing to contextualize the history of our campus is a big part of advancing those conversations. We welcome all points of view, but damaging or defacing statues is not the way to go about it.”

The graffiti sparked debate among some in the campus community about whether the statue should be removed.
