Soros Sponsored Mayhem; Alphabets Silent; And Rhetorical Hoops *Open Thread*

by

Remember all the mayhem that occurred in Ferguson (and other areas) after the decision of the Grand Jury regarding the justified homicide of criminal cop basher, Michael Brown? I know, I know, how could one forget? The police cars being overturned in Ferguson, the businesses that were burned to the ground, the sheer cost of all the manpower required for the police, the National Guard, State Troopers, and more?

Just to refresh your memory, here are a few photos of the violence that RACKED that area for weeks:

Honestly, the first minute, seeing the sheer level of destruction in Ferguson, was unbelievably disturbing. All of that damage, all of that TREMENDOUS cost no doubt being born largely by the state of Missouri and a bunch of insurance companies, all of the lives impacted by these acts of violence and these marches against a LAWFUL decision.

And much of it bankrolled by none other than Democrat-supporting billionaire, George Soros. The Washington Times broke this story (h/t BizPacReview):

There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

[…]

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

I tell you what, if I was a business owner who lived in that area, or the Police Chief, or the Fire Department Chief, or just a regular old citizen there, I would be wanting to charge George Soros as an accessory to violence, inciting to riot, and more. Maybe they could get a class action suit against MoveOn.org and George Soros in general for stoking these flames of violence, theft, arson, and more. SOMEONE should be held accountable, and SOMEONE should have to pay, and it sure shouldn’t be the town of Ferguson. I might add, this mindset by Soros speaks volumes…

As we have been discussing here, Obama, in his infinite wisdom, just released five more very dangerous terrorists following in the wake of the terrorist attack in Paris. But if you were watching any one of the Alphabet News networks, you sure wouldn’t know about the release of these five Yemenis. Oh, wait – that isn’t quite fair – ABC gave all of 35 SECONDS to the release (h/t Fox and Friends), though the Media Research Group says it is more like 16 seconds. That is just STUNNING. STUNNING that regular citizens are being kept in the dark about what Obama is doing. I know – what else is new? Just more of their twisting themselves through all kinds of hoops to protect The One.

And speaking of rhetorical twisting, Jonah Goldberg had a very good piece in Townhall about that very thing, “Ducking Reality: Administration Goes to Rhetorical Extremes on Terror Attacks“:

[…] The problem is that the White House’s position is categorical denial. It is not that the role of Islam in such attacks is exaggerated. Nor is it that these attacks should not be used to disparage more than a billion peaceful Muslims around the world. These are mainstream and defensible positions.

But, again, that’s not what the White House is saying. It is saying that one should not associate these attacks with the word “Islamic,” no matter what adjective you hang on it — radical, extreme, perverted, etc. — even when the murderers release videos attesting to their faith and their association with Islamist terror groups.

[…]

The Obama administration seems to believe that the wonder-working power of their words can get everyone to stop believing their lying eyes and ears. It’s tempting to ask, “How stupid do they think we are?” But the more relevant question is, “How stupid do they think the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims are?” Whatever appeal the Islamic State may or may not have in the larger Muslim world, Barack Obama insisting “it is not Islamic” surely makes no difference whatsoever. And as for the jihadists, it’s not like his words speak louder than his drone strikes.

It’s true that the Obama administration has had remarkable success playing word games. They “created or saved” millions of jobs — as if that was a real economic metric. (For what it’s worth, I do or save 500 pushups every morning). They decimated “core al-Qaida,” with the tautological definition of “core al-Qaida” being “the parts of al-Qaida that we have decimated.”

But this is different. Those distortions were political buzzphrases intended for domestic consumption and a re-election campaign. This is a much bigger deal. The threat of Islamic extremism transcends Obama’s theological hubris and lexicological shenanigans. All Obama’s insipid rhetorical gamesmanship does is send the signal to friend and foe alike that he can’t or won’t see the problem for what it is. (Click here to read the rest of this good piece.)

There seems to be a lot of that going around in DC. But those of us who have eyes to see, see. And we know that what the White House is spinning is nothing but a yarn. It makes them look, well, stupid, to put it bluntly. And desperate. Foolish. Ignorant. Crazy. I could go on, as I am sure you could. Bottom line is, we cannot deal with this very real danger if we cannot, no, WILL not, name it. Enough with the rhetorical twists. Just try speaking the truth for a change. Just a thought!

And those are mine for today. What are yours? This is an Open Thread.

    This makes me sick. Where are all the Lefties and Dems speaking out about this? Yeah, right: http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2015/01/16/isis-throws-men-to-their-deaths-for-being-gay-n1944080

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      That’s one of the many puzzling things, at least to me, about the left. Theyclaim to be the stalwart supporters of Gays and Women yet support Islam which treats both so horribly. The death of these men was not some isolated incident by some bigoted idiot. It is part and parcel of their religion. How can they not see that? How can gays and women support a party that supports these things? It makes no sense!

      On another topic, since I’m already here, I was once a big fan of the new Pope. Now? Not so much. The more he opens his mouth the less I like him. I think this is the final straw!

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        It truly is puzzling, Marge. You see all these college kids and professors supporting the Muslim Student Association on campuses which has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Yet, they think they are being all cool and hip by supporting an organization that wants to destroy the USA, Israel, and impose Shariah law, which would end up killing MANY of them, if they had their druthers (gays, women who are raped, etc., etc.). It makes NO sense.

        Right there with you abt the new pope. GREAT cover!

    Good morning Friends,
    Great post Amy!!!!
    I am one happy Lady,Walking on air,
    Got the all clear from my Doctor.
    Keep up the PT and stay off the WALL. 😀

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      So happy for you Foxy! You obvisouly had a good doctor but you also helped yourself by doing what you needed to do.

      As for me I have to use a cane more all the time. But Lou, darling that he can be, thought he would make that fact a little easier for me. He bought me a new cane – a quad cane which stands on its own unlike my old one and it is also shorter so that it fits me better. It is also “PINK”!

      I’m the one who uses Amazon here so he had a friend order it and have it shipped here. I was surprised with my new cane yesterday.

      Here’s a picture.

      • foxyladi14 Says:

        Wow!! Love that new Cane, Marge. ❤

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          It took me shopping today and worked very well. Stylish too isn’t it? I feel I can brag a little since it was a gift and a thoughtful one at that.

          I’m hoping the leg will get better soon, it has its little fits and starts and then disappears for weeks at a time. Until the time, I suppose when it comes to stay. Whatever, there are those who are in a lot worse shape than I am.

          Just so glad to hear how well you are doing.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            Glad the cane worked well for you, and by all means, brag away! It was a very thoughtful gift from Lou.

            I hope your leg gets better soon, too. And I hope the day is long, long away for when it becomes a regular thing…

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      WOOHOO, Foxy!! So, so happy for you!! That is GREAT news!!! Yippee!!

      And Marge, I know what you mean. I have to use mine more and more, especially at places like airports or anywhere I have to do more walking than normal.

      But how very, very sweet of LOU!!! What a doll he is for getting you this new cane! Maybe you can get it bedazzled like my Great Aunt June had done to hers:

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I need mine for the same things you mentioned. Like today, we will be going to get groceries in a little while and all the walking is a problem. The cane helps. Pretty cane you aunt has.

        I cannot believe that I am discussing, let alone excited, about a cane. When did I get old? I accept the wrinkles, the fact that things that once took a short time now take me half a day and the lapses in memory but NOT the ability to get around.

        By the way, I am wearing my fluffy pink hat and scarf so you can see why he knew to get me a pink cane.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          LOL abt the hat, scarf, and now matching cane! Very nice – smart man, that Lou!

          Yeah, the getting around thing is indeed tough. I usually don’t take anything into a grocery store using the cart instead. And I should probably use it more around the house, but it just gets in my way and I can’t do as much with only one hand.

          Anyway – I hear you – this aging thing is something else, ain’t it?

    • kinthenorthwest Says:

      Have you all seen where they are already trying to fry Carson.
      Heck for that matter they are trying to fry Cruz too. Cruz’s ticket at 18 for alcohol didn’t turn many heads though. Most people even liberals were highly insulted that anyone felt it was a problem.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Oh, yeah – they went after him pretty fast. That’s always a good indication of how threatened they are by them, if you ask me…

  4. kinthenorthwest Says:

    Another good post Amy…Why is it that we have to go Forums to figure out the real news in America??? Seems that almost everything and anything from mainstream media is so twisted and turned that it doesn’t even take much for a smart person to figure out all the lies.
    I am actually so glad to see that Ferguson and NY is quieting down some. However I do believe that Sharpton is going to try and use the Oscars as a way to ignite them again. Hey I lived during the Civil Rights era and yes it had some violence. However the “Selma” movie’s main focus seems to be mostly the violence and almost an exaggeration of the violence. Although I have not seen all of the Oscar movies I do believe that good choices were made.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thanks so much, Kin – and nice to *see* you!

      That is so true, isn’t it? We have to dig to get to the truth, but too many don’t have the time or the inclination to get to the bottom of things. So they believe what ABC, CBS, or NBC tell them – they don’t know they SHOULDN’T, you know?

      I am glad things are calming down now, too. But yeah. Sharpton is getting out there trying to keep the animosity and violence flowing so his coffers get filled. And I had heard that “Selma” was not historically accurate, just like “The Butler” took TREMENDOUS license with the book. Sounds like Oprah is up to her old tricks with this movie, too. No wonder Sharpton is mad…Ahem.

  5. kinthenorthwest Says:

    I get emails from Charles Benninghoff, Pray For US here and there. Today’s email really struck home cause I have been saying this about the illegals for a long time now. I do believe that mixed in with the Hispanic Illegals is a large % of Muslim Illegals, of which many are most likely radicals.
    “Here is what former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has to say about Obama’s executive actions on amnesty:

    “[Obama] is going to give full-scale amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, which by the way would include terrorists who are in this country who came in illegally.”

    An unknown number of illegal alien Muslim terrorists (the number could actually be in the millions) will be granted amnesty and citizenship benefits unless the Senate has the courage to stop Obama.

    We reported earlier that under Obama, the number of Muslims in the country has risen from 1.9 million to almost 7 million – in a short six years. This current number present is reported from a very authoritative and reliable source. If we assume only 10% of these Muslims support jihad, that gives us some 700,000 radical Muslims who are being proposed for automatic citizenship.”

  9. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Do these people ever hear themselves? I just saw Cecile Richards, daughter of the late, great, Anne Richards (she is NOT her mother, I might add) on Special Report. She made this comment abt some abortion bill that’s up: “This is an unconstitutional ban, and this is something we expect to defeat,” she said. “The people of this country believe Congress should be focused on making people’s lives better, and they shouldn’t be involved in making personal medical decisions for women and their doctors.” (Link:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/14/20-week-abortion-ban_n_6472034.html)

    Um, isn’t that PRECISELY what Obamacare does??? Take away decisions between doctors and patients?? Just asking…

    And THIS is the mindset of the President of Iran, the country with which Obama and Cameron are insisting we have diplomatic relations, and no more sanctions: http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Irans-Rouhani-likens-Paris-terrorist-attacks-with-Israels-policies-toward-Palestinians-387258
