Truth? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Truth; Respect Enemies (Not Cops); And Blast Off *Open Thread*


It is near to impossible to stay away from some of the sheer insanity coming out of the mouths of our Democratic leaders over the past few weeks. I am just stunned that these people were ELECTED to represent my fellow Americans. No wonder we are currently mired in this ginned up racial division fomented by none other than our President, and our Attorney General, despite the facts of the cases (heck, even Eric Garner’s own DAUGHTER does not believe his death was racially motivated – h/t Martha MacCullum). It is certainly convenient for the Democrats since it shifts focus from their disastrous losses in the Mid-terms to something Obama has focused on since he began his run in 2008: race. Many of us feel he has set back race relations decades, and the past few weeks have done nothing but confirm that suspicion.

But I digress. Kind of, though I suppose it is all related when you have people like Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton make statements so obvious in their attempts to fan the flames of racial tension. I have to say, when I saw what she said, it just burned me up. Check it out (h/t BizPacReview,com):

Yes, Rep. Holmes Norton, if you just scream your position that makes it right. And her statement that, “my interest isn’t in what happened, but what SHOULD happen.”

What the HELL???

It is PRECISELY what happened that is at issue! In both the Ferguson and Garner cases, FACTS MATTER!!!! For heaven’s sake, if we don’t base our conclusions, especially LEGAL conclusions, on FACTS and EVIDENCE, then why the hell even BOTHER?!?!

Sorry. This just has me hot under the collar. Especially since that is just the tip of the iceberg. Next up, we have the Minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, making a leap that defies any semblance of logic. From BizPacReview:

[…] Undeterred by the evidence, she released a ridiculous statement Wednesday night citing three recent high profile police killings as part of a pattern.

“Tonight, in communities across the country, Americans are grieving the tragic deaths of unarmed citizens. Neither Eric Garner, nor Tamir Rice, nor Michael Brown deserved to be killed,” Pelosi said in the statement.

“Any one of these deaths would be a tragedy, but three such incidents appear to be a clear pattern,” Pelosi said. “All lives matter. We must work to ensure that law enforcement has the resources, training, and commitment to community needed to uphold our laws and keep our families safe.” […]

Wow. Just freakin’ wow. Never mind facts like these:

[…] Her (Pelosi’s) comments are in stark contrast to hard evidence presented by Fox News host Bill O’Reilly Wednesday during a debate with radio host Tavis Smiley.

O’Reilly pointed out that 123 blacks were killed by police gunfire in 2013, while 326 whites were killed the same way.

“There are 43 million-plus black Americans, 123 were killed by police gunfire,” he said. “There isn’t an epidemic of this.”

And anyone who wants to know why there is such a high concentration of police activity in predominately black areas need only look at O’Reilly’s numbers.

The host showed data proving that while blacks make up 13 percent of the population, as opposed to the 63 percent of whites, blacks actually committed more murders in 2013 — 5,375 to 4,396. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Truth?? We don’t need no stinkin’ truth before we make up our minds and whip the mobs into a frenzy against the police as this article highlights (h/t Weasel Zippers):

The Denver police union says protestors marching against the Ferguson grand jury decision cheered and chanted “hit him again” after four officers were hit by a runaway car.

Several other police sources tell 9NEWS crime and justice reporter Anastasiya Bolton that there is evidence as well as DPD witnesses to the fact that some students cheered after the officers were struck. {…] (Click here to read the rest.)

Let me make clear that the person who did the hitting was having a medical issue, and it was unintended. But that this was the response of protestors speaks volumes, and it can be laid fully at the feet of Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Holder Norton, and a host of other Democrats.

But what pales in comparison to their comments is one made by Hillary Clinton. It is startling when compared to the disdain and animosity these folks are ginning up against our people in Blue. And that would be this suggestion by Clinton as reported by Fox News:

[…] Touting an approach she calls “smart power,” Clinton urged America to use “every possible tool and partner” to advance peace.

This, she said, includes “leaving no one on the sidelines, showing respect even for one’s enemies, trying to understand and insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view.”

At a time when the U.S. military is launching airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, some called the comments out of place. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

So, let me understand this: because there are two recent cases of two men who resisted arrest losing their lives as a result, directly or indirectly, our former hero First Responders are now a bunch of racists who must be re-trained to respect citizens who are being encouraged not to respect them. MEANWHILE, we are supposed to respect and EMPATHIZE with our enemies.

Are you freakin’ kidding me with this crap??? Seriously. WTH is going on in this country that these things are being pushed and taught by Democrats?? It is just infuriating, beyond infuriating, actually. It is despicable.

This insanity makes me wish I was aboard Orion this morning as it took off for a test mission for Mars:

It continues to amaze me what people can do when we put our minds to it. This is just such a moment, and gives a bit of relief, a bit of pride, in the midst of the insanity we are enduring at this time in our country. To space and beyond!

In honor of the Orion mission, I leave you with this:

Nothing like a good tune to push some of the insanity to the side, right? I hope you enjoyed it! Feel free to add some music of your own, or discuss whatever else is on your minds.

    pull all cops out of black neighborhoods. let the bloods and the crips and the black panthers rule. that should make the cbc, holder and backtrack very happy. the law abiding citizens will get hurt but hey that is just collateral damage

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Honestly, Helen, I would not blame the NYOD one bit if they said, “you know what? Since you seem to think so poorly of us, and seem not to understand what we really do, we’ll just be staying home for a few days. Buh-bye!”

  4. HELENK3 Says:

    when I was a kid space travel was just science fiction. Buck Rodgers was a movie character. How far we have come in my lifetime. How far will we go in my grandchildren and great grandchildren’s lives? I will never cease to be amazed

    • HELENK3 Says:

      did you ever think we would see beauty like this?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      It really is amazing, isn’t it, Helen? Can you believe how far we have come? It is truly astonishing. I think abt my great aunt and all the changes she has experienced in the almost 100 yrs she has been on the planet. Just think of it – phones, tv, space travel, computers, and so much more…

      Thank you for the photos! WOW!!!!

    I could not read this article without tears and wondering would I be as brave?

    why no protest marches and outrage over this?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Isn’t that just HORRIBLE??? And of COURSE there are no protests over this. Why? Because this is a REAL issue, not a ginned up one…

    I saw the same thing happen in Seattle several years ago

      That is incredibly disturbing that that happened in Seattle, too. What is WRONG with people?!

  12. kinthenorthwest Says:

    Had to share this with you all…It is something else. It is apparent that Louis Head meant to start the riots.
    Lesley McSpadden: :02 “Y’all wrong, y’all wrong, y’all wrong, y’all wrong”
    Louis Head: 00:08 “Burn this bitch down”
    McSpadden: 00:09 “They Wrong”

    Head: 00:10 “Burn this bitch down”

    Head: 00:12 “Burn this bitch down”

    Head: 00:15 “Burn,… no, if I get up there, I’m gonna start a riot”

    Head: 00:18 “Burn this shit down”

    McSpadden: 00:25 “why Lord, why, why”? “They still don’t care.” “They ain’t never gonna care”.

    […] At 01:15 Louis Head climbs onto top of vehicle with McSpadden. Moments later, as he previously stated he would, Louis Head begins the chant “Burn this bitch down”

    Head: 01:47 “Burn this bitch down, burn this bitch down”. “Hand me a fucking mic”. “Burn this bitch down”. “Burn this bitch down”. “Burn this bitch down”.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I , Kin – I think he incited a riot, too. He should most definitely be charged for this. No doubt abt it.

      Btw, the other day I mentioned some stats from O’Reilly’s show on homicides. The specific numbers are: Blacks committed 5,375 in 2013; whites committed 4,396. Blacks comprise 13% of the population; whites 63%. Just for clarification.

      Oh, and this morning I heard abt Jon Stewart conflating stories of so-called cop killings. Needless to say, he fudged the numbers and facts. The DA for San Bernadino County, one of the places Stewart mentioned, was not happy abt it at all, and made it clear that the cops did NOT kill the guy Stewart mentioned, but being on PCP did.

      He also mentioned that no one seems to care abt all of the COPS who are killed in the line of duty, and his county has more than anywhere else (if I heard correctly). No one is protesting and marching for THEM.

      This anti-police rhetoric by this Administration is abhorrent. I cannot wait for Obama and Holder to get out of there. And when the hell is Holder leaving already?!?!?!

        The truth about Michael Brown’s parents:

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Uh, yeah – a gangbanger and a woman who will beat up a grandmother. I am sure they will win Parents Of The Year award – not.

        • kinthenorthwest Says:

          Sad but true they raised a child to be just like mama. Brown’s mother had lost me already, but when I heard about going after Grandma, then I knew. You all know that Brown was staying at relatives because of Head. Turns out McSpadden chose her boyfriend over her son several years ago.
          When you look at the statistics of criminal deaths due to Law Enforcement the number of black criminals killed by Law Enforcement is around 1/4 of the number of Caucasian criminals killed by Law enforcement.
          However it seems that the number of Black on Black murders in America is higher than the total number of Law Enforcement related deaths of Both Blacks and Caucasians. In looking at the stats I have been finding that Black on Black murders is the highest segment by a huge percentage.

    Candy Crowley, Who Propped Up Obama at 2012 Debate, Out at CNN

    I know I have a very suspicious mind but something about this just doesn’t “smell” right. Why would she give up her own television show to pursue other interests? Isn’t getting their own show exactly the kind of interest most media types pursue?

    Oops, seems my “suspicious” mind knew something.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      They SHOULD have ousted her after her unprofessional performance, but I guess she was doing their bidding, so there’s that. And yeah, Marge – just because we’re suspicious or cynical doesn’t mean it isn’t without reason! 😀

      I have been laughing about this exit for several days now. Now if MSNBC would get rid of Sharpton.

    good question. good point brought out in this article

    family tells sharpton “stay away”

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      It’s abt damn time someone told Sharpton to stop jumping in front of the camera on their behalf. Should have happened YEARS ago…

    Another good video by Bill Whittle….Bill Whittle has some goo pieces on Obama.
    “Everyone knows it is true, and no one has the courage to say it. The American people are letting Barack Obama destroy this country through illegal executive orders for one reason and one reason only. In his latest FIREWALL, Bill Whittle has the courage to speak out and make the case that no one else will make.”
