Via Inquistr:

One clothing company, Pacific Sunwear, is under fire for a t-shirt that was prominently displayed for the Memorial Day weekend that many Americans are calling offensive. The t-shirt features an image of the American flag in black and white flying upside down. An American flag flown upside down is a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property and those opposed to the shirt feel that unless PacSun was being robbed at gunpoint, there was no reason for such an offensive shirt to be on display. However, backers of the shirt say that the flag is rightfully being flown upside down as many feel the country is in a state of distress and are allowed to fly the flag in such a manner thanks to freedom of speech.

Black TV Mogul Rips Obama For Being A Sellout, Says He’s A “White President In Black Face”…

Barack Obama

“Black America would have done much better with a white president.” …. Ouch!

Via Daily Caller:

Media mogul and Entertainment Studios CEO Byron Allen unloaded on President Barack Obama over the weekend for not acting black enough.

“President Obama is, at this point, a white president in black face,” Allen, who is black, told TMZ.

“Black America would have done much better with a white president. You have let us down tremendously,” he continued.

The 53-year-old Allen, who has worked as a producer and talk show host, took Obama to task for publicly calling out the rioters and looters who descended on Baltimore last month after the death of Freddie Gray and for failing to improve conditions in the black community.

Get Your Hillary Swag, The Hillary Clinton Store Is Open! Buy Your ‘Everyday Pantsuit T-Shirt’!

Need some overpriced, horrifically Hillary swag? You to can pretend this is ‘hip’, and cause people to give you the stink eye when you walk down the street…

Via Time:

Cheeky, chic, youth-oriented, red pantsuit t-shirt. These are words that describe the items in Hillary Clinton’s brand-new presidential campaign store—and the tone that Clinton wants to set in the race.

The frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination launched her online store Tuesday morning. The store—which offer clothes, bumper stickers, and signs—will allow Clinton both to sell goods to bankroll her campaign, and more important, to build out her email list for heavy-duty fundraising down the road.

The overall look of the store items will also help define Clinton’s image among voters.

Visitors to the store can find a $30 “pantsuit tee” with the Hillary logo, or a t-shirt with the words “women’s rights are human rights are women’s rights,” which echoes Clinton’s 1995 speech in Beijing. A $55-stitched pillow in the store says “A woman’s place is in the White House,” and a coffee mug has the words “Red, white and brew.”

Rand Paul Plays Race Card On NSA…

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.00.10 AM

Just say it’s wrong and end it there. The second he branches off into racism, 90% of those on the right roll their eyes.

Presidential hopeful and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Monday defended his role in scuttling Senate compromise on government surveillance reauthorizations, a move that could lead to the controversial intelligence programs expiring outright at the end of the month.

“I’m right in line with what the founders would have fought for and I am proud of the fight,” Paul said on CBS’s “This Morning.”

“The Constitution is inconvenient, but the thing is, we obey the Constitution because it protects the rights of all individuals.”

The Senate adjourned last weekend without a compromise on extending expiring portions of the Patriot Act. Paul led an effort to block a compromise bill, called the USA Freedom Act, as well as a number of short-term extensions of the program meant to carry the policies through a congressional recess.

Paul bucked criticism from other lawmakers that his efforts are just for show or to help shore up fundraising for his presidential campaign. He noted that a recent Justice Department Inspector General report found that “the bulk collection of data hasn’t cracked one case.” [….]

”You don’t ever want systemic bias to enter into government,” he said.

“If you give the government too much power, there’s always the danger of having systemic violence. “

Paul added that the Republican Party often focuses its attention on some parts of the Constitution and leaves others, specifically the Fourth Amendment right to unreasonable searches, without protection.

Poll: 81% Of Al Jazeera’s Arabic Readers Support Islamic State…

Tiny minority of extremists?

Via Breitbart:

In a recent survey conducted by AlJazeera.net, the website for the Al Jazeera Arabic television channel, respondents overwhelmingly support the Islamic State terrorist group, with 81% voting “YES” on whether they approved of ISIS’s conquests in the region.

The poll, which asked in Arabic, “Do you support the organizing victories of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)?” has generated over 38,000 responses thus far, with only 19% of respondents voting “NO” to supporting ISIS.

Al Jazeera Arabic’s television audience is largely made up of Sunni Muslims living in the Arab world. Its biggest viewership numbers come from Egypt and Saudi Arabia, along with a large amount of satellite television viewers in the United States, according to research estimates. AlJazeera.net is most popular in Saudi Arabia, the United States, Egypt, Morocco, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the Alexa webpage analytics site. Al Jazeera claims that it has over 40 million viewers in the Arab world.

The news that an overwhelming majority of respondents to the Al Jazeera Arabic poll strongly support ISIS may not surprise long-time trackers of the controversial network. The news outfit, which is run by Qatar’s ruling family and headquartered in Doha, has a track record rife with allegations that the organization supports the narratives of Sunni terrorist groups.

Lib Rag Vox Marks Memorial Day By Lamenting Fact Military Deserters And Draft Dodgers Don’t Get Their Own Holiday…

OWS-flag burning

Dem Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Bill Ayers nod in approval.

Via Vox:

Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veteran’s Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who’ve perished. It’s an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized.

Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters.

American history is littered with examples of pointless wars fought for bad reasons, and with people who risked their careers and their freedom to oppose them. The Mexican-American War, for one, was a blatant land grab. While James K. Polk claimed that Mexico had struck first — saying in his war message to Congress that “Mexico has passed the boundary of the United States, has invaded our territory and shed American blood upon America’s soil” — the truth was that he had sent American troops into disputed territory between the Rio Grande and Nueces Rivers, whereupon Mexican troops, concerned by American encroachment, attacked.[…]

Desertion is an extreme measure, and it’s easy to condemn those who resisted in that manner, to claim they were cowards or fell down on their duties to their fellow soldiers. It’s easier still to point to wars of more moral clarity — the fight against Nazi and Japanese imperialism in World War II, the destruction of slavery in the Civil War — and ask what conceivable moral point resistance, especially desertion, would have served.

There’s no comparing isolationist or antisemitic opposition to World War II with clearheaded opposition to the waste of World War I or Vietnam. But advocates of war have never lacked for political backing. Relatively few have suffered for supporting a conflict that turned out to be a calamity, and even in the rare cases it’s happened the cost has been minimal. Supporting World War II was correct — but it was also easy. Opposing World War I was hard. That makes the contribution of those who did the latter all the braver and more commendable — and all the more necessary too.

Other countries have started to recognize this and honor their war resisters accordingly. A memorial in Glasgow, Scotland — a hotbed of British antiwar sentiment during World War I — commemorates “those who opposed World War One in order to challenge the purpose of the war and the waste of lives.” Monuments in Ypres, Belgium and Alrewas, England honor those World War I soldiers who, due both to disillusionment and sheer terror, deserted rather than continue killing in an unjust war. An official monument to Austrian deserters of World War II was unveiled in Vienna last year. The sculptor Mehmet Aksoy’s Monument to the Unknown Deserters of Both World Wars, debuted in West Germany in 1989, honors “the man who refused to kill his fellow man.”

The US is a long ways away from accepting, say, a memorial for those who deserted the military or dodged the draft during Vietnam. Merely deciding to spare them prosecution was controversial enough — and their counterparts from Iraq and Afghanistan still face the possibility of jail time for refusing to kill. Even the more modest step of honoring those who tried to stop war through peaceful means — organized protest, tax evasion, other forms of civil disobedience —would likely be a tall order. The Vietnam War Memorial faced tremendous opposition upon its unveiling for not being an uncritical celebration of the conflict.

But some wars aren’t worth fighting. Some causes aren’t worth sacrificing American lives for. Those who’ve fought to remind the government of those basic facts deserve our respect and our thanks.

Moonbats And Activists Hold Confederate Flag Burnings In 13 Southern States On Memorial Day…

Via Raw Story

Artists and activists around a purported 13 Southern states followed through on a plan to burn and bury the Confederate flag on Monday, WTVM-TV reported.

“If you don’t see the hate that comes along with it, that has come along with it, if you don’t see the racism behind what has been founded with the usage of it, then you’re ignoring it,” said Terone Allen, who organized a ceremony in Atlanta as part of an exhibit by Sarasota-based artist John Sims.

Artists taking part in the various events shared “eulogies” they composed for the flag before burying it.

“You decided to fight for the wrong side of history,” said a speaker at the Atlanta ceremony, Egypt Robinson X.[…]

History professor Julian Chambliss, who organized the Orlando event, said he burned the flag at home over the weekend, citing regulations covering the event site, a local pond. However, he was one of several participants who scattered the flag’s ashes onto the pond.

“The Confederate flag means a lot of things to a lot of people,” Chambliss said. “But to a lot of people, it’s a repressive thing.”

Members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans at various event sites also criticized the demonstrations, with many of them arguing against holding it on Memorial Day.

“With all due respect to the men of the other wars, those men were, whether you like it or not, defending their homes,” said Scott Gilbert, who identified himself as a former “post commander” for the group.

Littlest ‘Marine’ Visits Resting Place Of His Dad

Christian Jacobs and his mother, Brittany Jacobs, visited the grave of Sgt Christopher James Jacobs, who served one tour in Afghanistan and one in Iraq, in Arlington National Cemetery on Monday.

For Memorial Day Commemorations, they came bearing flowers, cards and photographs, and Christian had lain on the ground next to his father’s tombstone, at section 60 of the cemetery.

‘I hope for you to come back soon, daddy. And I love you and hope for you to be here. I know you will be here and I love you. And he is always watching over me and makes sure – he’s proud of me, daddy. And I love you daddy,’ Christian said.

Americans Gave Their Lives To Defeat The Nazis. The Dutch Have Never Forgotten…

Via WAPO

They haven’t forgotten. For 70 years, the Dutch have come to a verdant U.S. cemetery outside this small village to care for the graves of Americans killed in World War II.

On Sunday, they came again, bearing Memorial Day bouquets for men and women they never knew, but whose 8,300 headstones the people of the Netherlands have adopted as their own.

For the American relatives of the fallen, it was an outpouring of gratitude almost as stunning as the rows of white marble crosses and Jewish Stars of David at the Netherlands American Cemetery. Each grave has been adopted by a Dutch or, in some cases, Belgian or German family, as well as local schools, companies and military organizations. More than 100 people are on a waiting list to become caretakers.

At the cemetery’s annual commemoration, 6,000 people poured onto the 65-acre burial grounds just a few miles from the German border, including scores of descendants of American war dead who had traveled here from all over the United States. They were eager to pay tribute to parents or grandparents who had died to defeat the Nazis. But they also wanted to thank the Dutch families who had been tending the graves of their loved ones, often passing the responsibility from one generation to the next.

For Arthur Chotin, 70, who had come from Annapolis, Md., to finally meet the couple caring for his father’s resting place, the devotion of the Dutch was a source of awe.

“What would cause a nation recovering from losses and trauma of their own to adopt the sons and daughters of another nation?” asked Chotin, the only American descendant to speak on Sunday. “And what would keep that commitment alive for all of these years, when the memory of that war has begun to fade? It is a unique occurrence in the history of civilization.”

Saw This Coming: Cleveland Reaches Settlement With DOJ Over Police Conduct

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 7.49.48 PM

Said this was coming next. Doesn’t matter that the police officer was acquitted. Each incident is not the individual facts in the case, but about the DOJ inserting itself, and asserting control.

CLEVELAND — Cleveland has reached a settlement with the Justice Department over what federal authorities said was a pattern of unconstitutional policing and excessive use of force, people briefed on the case said Monday.

The settlement, which could be announced as early as Tuesday, comes days after a judge declared a Cleveland police officer not guilty of manslaughter for climbing onto the hood of a car and firing repeatedly at its unarmed occupants, both of them black. The verdict prompted a day and night of protests and reignited discussions about how police officers treat the city’s African-American residents.

The details of the settlement were not immediately clear, but in similar talks in recent years, the Justice Department has required cities to allow independent monitors to oversee changes in police departments. Settlements are typically backed by court orders and often call for improved training and revised policies for the use of force.

27 Shootings And Eight Deaths In Baltimore Over Memorial Day Weekend…

Baltimore shooting

Welcome to the destruction zone.

Via Daily Caller

Baltimore has seen 27 shootings and eight deaths so far over Memorial Day weekend, as the month of May promises to be the most violent the city has seen this century.

“It is disheartening that we are seeing such an increase in violence, especially when we think about the progress that we’ve made,” Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told WJZ. “We’ve come too far to have this type of setback.”

The sharp uptick in violence coincided with the April 12 arrest of Freddie Gray. Gray, 25, died in police custody a week later. The case sparked rioting and looting in the city and nationwide protests over police brutality. Six officers involved in Gray’s arrest and transport were indicted last week by a grand jury. Charges include second-degree depraved-heart murder and manslaughter.

According to Baltimore Sun reporter Justin Fenton, crime in the city has reached levels not seen since 1999.

The city did not reach the 100 murder threshold until July last year.

“China and Russia are two good examples of countries who will be fielding capability in the next three to five years; if they stay on track, that is better than what we currently have in many areas,” Welsh said during a three-day visit to Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.

“Fighter aircraft in the next three to five years that have more capability than what we currently have sitting on the ramp. The F-35 will stay a generation ahead of them. F-22 will, too. Everything else we have will not stay ahead. The gap has closed.”

Student Veteran With PTSD Suspended, Labeled ‘Threat’ To Peers After Requesting To Meet With Non-Muslim Counselor…

MS College

If the roles were reversed, the counselor would have been fired.

Via Campus Reform

Months after the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) pledged to improve its treatment of veterans, disabled student veteran Jeremy Rawls is hoping his college might do the same.

Since February, the rising senior at Mississippi College in Clinton, Miss. has struggled to maintain good grades and reclaim his work-study position after MC administrators allegedly suspended him and labeled him a threat to himself and other students.

In an exclusive interview with Campus Reform, the former active-duty Marine who served two combat tours in Iraq said his suspension came after he requested to meet with a different counselor in the school’s Office of Counseling and Disability Services. Rawls, who is diagnosed with combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), was originally paired with a female counselor who wore traditional Muslim dress during his initial visit to the office.

“It’s not that I didn’t want to participate… I didn’t want to traumatize her and it wasn’t a good environment to be talking about [my disabilities] with that specific person,” Rawls said.

Rawls’s original reason for visiting the school’s counseling office was to pick up paperwork intended for his professors, a task that had been delayed because of a lengthy recovery from knee surgery.

“Every semester I have to identify with the school as disabled and they give me letters to give to my professors,” Rawls explained. “This semester I had a surgery at the beginning which caused some issues in getting some letters.”

According to Rawls, his attempts to meet with staff members to discuss the school’s policy about changing counselors were repeatedly ignored and it wasn’t until a recent meeting with administrators that he was able to speak with staff.

“Their response was suspending me pending a mental evaluation which I provided and then they put me on further restriction and a reintegration program,” Rawls said.

In an email notifying Rawls of his suspension, Associate Dean of Students Jonathan Ambrose said administrators and the Student Intervention Team have a “due diligence in not only the protection of yourself, but also the campus community as a whole from potential harm or the threat there of.”

“You are not permitted to be on campus for any reason or attend class during the duration of the Interim Suspension unless you have written permission,” states an email sent to Rawls on Feb. 26 and later obtained by Campus Reform.

No Relation?

This morning, I googled The Unknown Soldier. I was looking for an image of his grave to accompany something I had written to commemorate Memorial Day. I found the photo I was looking for at Arlington, but right next to it, I saw another headstone that caught my attention.
My first thought was “maybe we’re related?” My family tree, especially on my Dad’s side, is more like a wall of ivy, so I thought it might be possible. I clicked on the link below the image. The link took me to a webpage, and the page – a true memorial if there ever was one – told me the incredible story of Lt. Colonel James “Nick” Rowe.

As it turns out, Colonel Rowe is a legend among the Special Forces, and if he were in anyway related to my own family, I’d have certainly known it by now. His story would have been drilled into my head as a child. My father would have taken us to his grave. And the details of his heroism would have been memorized years ago. How strange, to learn of them this morning, in such a random way.

Ambushed in 1963, Rowe spent 5 years in a wooden box, courtesy of the Viet Cong. He was an intelligence officer, and possessed mountains of information the enemy desperately wanted. 1st Lt. Rowe on the other hand, was not inclined to cooperate.

The governor of Texas on Monday declared states of disaster in 24 counties, citing the severe weather and flash flooding that have killed at least two people.

The state has been pounded by tornadoes, heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and flooding that forced evacuations and rooftop rescues and left thousands of residents without electrical power.

In declaring the states of disaster in 24 counties, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said: “The State of Texas has taken brisk action in dispatching all available resources to aid those affected by this severe weather system.

“My thoughts and prayers are with all the communities that are suffering as a result of this weather disaster, and I am grateful for the first responders who have worked tirelessly to provide shelter, care and resources to all impacted areas,” he said.

Widespread severe thunderstorms were forecast for Monday in north-central and northeast Texas and southern Oklahoma, likely bringing destructive winds, tornadoes and hail, the National Weather Service said.

The Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm and flash-flood warnings as well as tornado watches throughout the region.

The most intense storms threatening Texas and Oklahoma were likely to strike in the late afternoon and early evening, according to Accuweather.com meteorologist Brian Lada.

“Damaging wind gusts and frequent lightning strikes can occur,” he said.

Parts of the area have received more than a foot and a half of rain since May 1, which is six times more than the area typically receives in all of May, Accuweather said.

Deadspin Targets St. Louis Cardinals Mascot For Daring To Hold A ‘Police Lives Matter’ Sign

Who could think that a baseball team would disallow such a statement as controversial? But the Cardinals wimp out under pressure…

Via St Louis Post-Dispatch:

Sports website Deadspin took the St. Louis Cardinals mascot Fredbird to task this week for posing for a photo while holding a sign that said “police lives matter” in a story titled “Your Racist Uncle Will Love This Picture of The Cardinals’ Mascot.”

The article said Fredbird “would be the one sports mascot to attend an event hosted by the St. Louis Police department and hold up a ‘Police Lives Matter’ sign.”

Hinting that any defense of the Cardinals would be “crypto-racist,” Deadspin went on to say they emailed the Cardinals to ask what was required to get Fredbird to attend an event.

What they didn’t do, apparently, was email anyone to ask about the actual circumstances surrounding that specific photo.
