2020 Dems’ Latest Attack on Obama: His DOJ Bungled the Michael Brown ‘Murder’ Investigation

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

First off Micheal Brown got his punk ass shot because he had attacked a police officer and was rushing toward the same officer.

I know Bathhouse Barry Obama has to be pissed having his legacy challenged by the 2020 DemocRat clowns.

Warren, Harris stand with activists against Obama officials.

Democratic presidential candidates continue to throw shade on the legacy of former President Barack Obama. They rarely criticize him by name, but many of the 2020 hopefuls have implicitly attacked Obama’s record on health care, immigration, and climate change, among other issues.

The latest example of implied criticism, courtesy of two prominent contenders, focuses on the Obama administration’s investigation into the controversial police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) marked the five-year anniversary of Brown’s death on Twitter by asserting that he was “murdered.”

5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.

Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America. His tragic death sparked a desperately needed conversation and a nationwide movement. We must fight for stronger accountability and racial equity in our justice system.

That’s not what Barack Obama’s Department of Justice concluded after investigating the incident. The federal probe, in addition to the local criminal investigation presented to a grand jury, did not find sufficient evidence to pursue charges against Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot Brown. Both largely substantiated Wilson’s version of events that Brown reached into his police car and attempted to grab the officer’s gun.

The DOJ investigation further concluded that a central detail in the popular narrative surrounding the case — that Brown held his hands up and shouted “don’t shoot” — was likely false, and based on testimony from unreliable witnesses. The tweets from Sens. Harris and Warren suggest that Obama’s Justice Department failed to address “systemic racism” and “racial equity” in the justice system.

California Introduces Radical Anti-Semitic High School Curriculum

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Will the last sane American leaving Commiefornia Please bring the flag and turn out the lights.

Outrage in Jewish, pro-Israel community after anti-Israel activists hijack curriculum.

The state of California has introduced “blatantly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel” lessons into its official high school curriculum, drawing outrage and concern in the state’s Jewish and pro-Israel communities, according to multiple sources involved in the controversy.

The California Department of Education is facing backlash after permitting a host of anti-Israel activists to build a statewide educational curriculum that demonizes the Jewish state and is said to be fostering hatred of Jewish and Israeli-American students, sources said.

Already, 83 pro-Israel and anti-discrimination organizations have petitioned the state’s education department to reform its Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) to remove multiple instances of what they say is anti-Semitic and anti-Israel bias.

Multiple sources involved in the fight have described to the Washington Free Beacon anti-Semitic courses that they say are fostering an unsafe environment for Jewish and Israeli-American students. Further information obtained by the Free Beacon reveals that several of the educators involved in pushing the new curriculum have a history of anti-Israel activism that has often spilled into anti-Semitic territory.

“We are aware that many individuals and groups affiliated with the Jewish community have already written to you about the ESMC’s shocking omission of information about American Jews and anti-Semitism, its use of classic anti-Semitic stereotypes, and its blatant anti-Israel bias,” a coalition of 83 pro-Israel organizations led by the AMCHA Initiative, a watchdog group that combats anti-Semitism in America, wrote to California’s Education Department.

“This includes the California Legislative Jewish Caucus, who wrote to you that they ‘cannot support a curriculum that erases the American Jewish experience, fails to discuss anti-Semitism, reinforces negative stereotypes about Jews, singles out Israel for criticism and would institutionalize the teaching of anti-Semitic stereotypes in our public schools,'” the groups wrote.

The curriculum, the organizations claim, is the result of an effort by several leading educators who have expressed both anti-Israel and anti-Semitic viewpoints.

“The anti-Jewish, anti-Israel bias of the proposed ESMC curriculum—including its implicit portrayal of Jews and Israel as part of ‘interlocking systems of oppression and privilege’ and its endorsement of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement as a form of ‘direct action’ or ‘resistance’ that students are encouraged to engage in—clearly exposes the politically motivated and directed nature of the curriculum and its drafters,” the organizations wrote.

“Not surprisingly, more than one-quarter of the Model Curriculum Advisory Committee members, appointed by the State Board of Education to draft the ESMC, have publicly expressed animus towards Israel and its supporters, with some members openly supporting BDS,” the letter states. “There is no doubt that these committee members have unconscionably used the state-mandated curriculum as a tool for politically indoctrinating California’s high school students with anti-Israel propaganda and encouraging them to engage in political activism against the Jewish state.”

Shoham Nicolet, head of the Israel American Council, an organization working to oppose the curriculum and expose those behind it, told the Free Beacon that California’s small, tightknit Israeli-American community is concerned that this curriculum will foster anti-Semitism in the state’s schools.

“As immigrants of this country, we’re looking at a curriculum that will discriminate based on ethnic backgrounds,” Nicolet said.

After researching the educators behind the new curriculum, Nicolet said he was “surprised to find out that you have people who are … supporters of BDS publicly.”

The global BDS movement has been described not just by pro-Israel leaders but also by many members of Congress as an anti-Semitic movement that seeks to wage economic warfare on Israel and Jewish citizens.

“It’s odd that a professional committee that’s supposed to have an impact on the education of millions of kids in California in public school and is funded by taxpayers is so biased,” Nicolet said. “How come the BDS movement is part of what is supposed to be allowed in classrooms in California?”

Public research materials viewed by the Free Beacon reveal that several committee members behind California Department of Education’s Draft Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum are outspoken critics of Israel.

One member, Samia Shoman, is a Palestinian-American who teaches in the San Mateo Union High District. Her lesson plans on Palestinian history have been featured as a teaching tool by the Qatar Foundation International, a group tied to the nation and its efforts to proliferate boycotts of Israel. Shoman is also a pro-Palestinian activist on Twitter.

Another committee member, Gaye Theresa Johnson, an associate professor at UCLA college of social sciences, also has supported pro-Palestinian causes on Twitter, including retweets from pro-Iran individuals who have deemed Tehran as the victim in the ongoing nuclear standoff with the United States.

A third committee member, Theresa Montaño, a professor at California State University, Northridge, has publicly supported the BDS movement and advocates for Israeli scholars to be boycotted in the United States. Montaño also signed a 2009 letter to then-president Barack Obama that was organized by one of the globe’s most prominent BDS organizations.

Masha Merkulova, founder and executive director of Club Z, a Bay Area organization that fosters commitment to Israel, told the Free Beacon that the effort to promote this one-sided curriculum should worry all Americans.

“If we allow this to happen, California’s children are going to be indoctrinated in intolerance and hate,” Merkulova said. “This is our flashpoint … this ethnic studies curriculum is infused with Jew hatred. Let’s call it for what it is, anti-Semitism. Our Department of Education has put bigoted people in charge of writing a curriculum that is supposed to promote inclusivity and tolerance.”

“This is an attempt to make anti-Semitism institutional,” she said. “This is what the kids are going to learn as part of normal things they learn.”

REPORT: Florida’s Anti-Gun, Republican Senate President Received $500K from Bloomberg

H/T GunPowder Magazine.

If Florida has a recall provision I would like to see this clown get recalled and removed from office.

Bill Galvano, a Republican and Florida’s Senate President, has come out as very anti-gun recently, and reporter Ian MacDonald points out that Galvano accepted half-a-million dollars from Michael Bloomberg.

Bill Galvano

@BillGalvano

Senseless violence like we saw over the weekend across the country must stop. No function of government is more important than the safety of the people we serve. The @FLSenate will work even harder to ensure that safety. Thoughts and prayers must yield action.

54 people are talking about this

The Tampa Bay Times “reports”:

Bill Galvano: Credit Florida’s Senate President with being one of the first major Republicans to respond to last weekend’s mass shootings with more than just thoughts and prayers. He correctly identified white nationalism as a factor in the surge of mass shootings. Perhaps most importantly, the Bradenton lawmaker suggested he’d consider pushing legislation that would address the real issue: access to powerful, military-style guns. Sure, it’s an election year, so politics might be part of Galvano’s calculations. But when compared to the response from José Oliva, his counterpart in the Florida House, Galvano at least sees a role for government to play in this public health crisis.

MacDonald, writing for PoliticsElections.com, reports one in four Floridians has a concealed carry permit. MacDonald writes:

‘Campus carry’ bills have been dead on arrival in the Republican Majority Legislature and Galvano’s tenure and over the last three years, despite much statewide support by Sunshine state citizens.

Florida Senate President Galvano is coming off as a very anti-second amendment politician these days. Dig a little deeper and the answer as to why becomes clear. Galvano was ‘blasted’ by the NRA for his unlikely associations with Michael Bloomberg.

Bill’s name is directly associated with his Political Action Committee named “INNOVATE FLORIDA.” If you search “INNOVATE FLORIDA” on the State of Florida website you will find some interesting donations. Liberal gun control mouthpiece, Michael Bloomberg, made two major cash infusions to Galvano’s PAC through Bloomberg’s PAC named “Everytown for Gun Safety:”

On 09/04/2018 there was a donation for $200,000, and again on 10/26/2018 for $300,000.

GPM has reported in the past that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), another RINO pushing for gun control, also accepted big donations from Bloomberg.

The Post and Courier reported at the time:

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s $250,000 contribution to a super PAC that supports U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s re-election is tied to Graham’s strong support for Israel and his record of results in Washington, the PAC’s controller said.

But Bloomberg is also an outspoken advocate of gun control, which could come back to haunt Graham in a state filled with voters seen as pro-Second Amendment.

Hollywood Haters: ‘The Hunt’ Producer Says He Would ‘Take Out’ Trump

H/T Godfather Politics.

It is time the Secret Service pays this hate-filled producer a visit as he has threatened President Trump and his administration.

The producer of the shelved shock film, The Hunt, said that if it were up to him, he would kill President Trump and his administration.

The Hunt caused all sorts of controversy last week when people began to realize that the plot consisted of liberal elites kidnapping red state Trump voters and then releasing them on a preserve where the liberals can hunt and kill them for sport.

Here is the trailer:

A lot of conservative news sites and commentators were infuriated with the plot. Many of these commentators insisted that the movie proves just how much Hollywood hates Republicans, so much so that they wanted a death-porn film where Republicans are hunted down and killed.

By Saturday, film studio and distributor Universal canceled plans to release the movie at the end of September. The film will likely be shelved for a while, but you can be sure it will be released eventually, but perhaps straight to video or to streaming first instead of in theaters.

Now, to make the film’s future even murkier, the producer of the film, Jason Blum of BlumHouse Films, has admitted that he’d like to kill everyone in the administration. Blum was heard saying that if he could do one thing without consequences, it would be to kill Trump and his administration.

As Bleeding Cool noted, in 2017, when he was doing press for his film Happy Death Day, Blum was asked what he would do if he could keep reliving the same day without any consequences. Blum replied, “I would take out the current administration.” And he did not look like he was joking.

With this, we can see what Blum really thinks.

Granted, it appears that The Hunt started with the deaths of Trump supporters. But it also seems that it does a switch at some point and becomes a revenge film as the Trump voters rise up and turn the tables on the leftists killing them.

Clearly, Blum was in hog heaven in making a film where conservatives were murdered one by one.

Twitter feed: Claim that “Assault Weapon” Definition is Unimportant

H/T JPFO.

The definition of the term assault weapon is important.


Assault Weapon in New Jersey, 1990-2018, Proposed Assault Weapon
on Florida Ballot Proposition. Banned in Australia

By Dean Weingarten. August 12th, 2019
Original Source

A political activist on twitter posted a non-argument about “assault weapons” on 4 August, 2019. He got over 8 thousand retweets and 57 thousand likes. How many of those were bots is unknown.

Jason Isbell wrote if you argue about the definition of an “assault weapon” you are part of the problem. He claimed his opponents know what an assault weapon is, and know they do not need one.

The rifle pictured above has been one of the most popular hunting rifles in the United States. It was legally an “assault weapon” in New Jersey from 1990 to 2018. It is proposed as an “assault weapon” in the Florida petition to amend the state Constitution. It is banned in Australia.

The term “assault weapon” has never been clearly defined in dictionaries. It is a legal term. From the outset, those pushing for a disarmed population have deliberately sought to confuse the public about the term and what it means.

They point to fully automatic firearms on TV ads, then they include common, everyday rifles, pistols, and shotguns in their legal definitions.

Below is the tweet meant to convince people that facts and definitions are not important. Tweet that assault weapon definition is unimportant.

Isbell may or may not be as clueless as he appears. Some activists that wish for a disarmed population have done their homework and know how slippery the legal definition of an “assault weapon” is. They do not wantthe electorate to know.

The most important part of any law about “assault weapons”, after the obvious infringement against Second Amendment rights, is the legal definition. Arguing that ignorance is strength is an old, Orwellian tactic.

Most of the people who are liking this tweet probably fall into the category of the consciously unarmed. They have chosen to be unarmed, and they do not want anyone else to be armed, because they are acutely aware of the power differential between armed and unarmed people.

There is an easy way to understand how a many of people who want you unarmed think.

Assume you have deliberately chosen to be unarmed. Being armed requires effort. Being unarmed requires far less effort. Being armed requires you to be responsible, to practice safety and to train. You have to face unpleasant choices and prepare for them. It takes money and time and thought.

Being unarmed does not require these things. It is much easier. Part of choosing to be unarmed is not having to learn about weapons, weapons technology, or tactics, or even the history of weapons and tactics. People who have chosen to be unarmed, often don’t want other people to be armed, except for the government, which they have to assume is always beneficent and available to provide armed security, when it is necessary.

This is how the desire to disarm the population works. It appeals to emotion, bypassing fact and argument. Those who have chosen to be unarmed do not care if gun owners are harmed or if gun owners rights are trampled on. They are not gun owners. They do not intend to be gun owners. If they gain a tiny advantage, while gun owners rights are destroyed, they think they have achieved something for nothing. They are wrong.

It is the responsibility of gun owners to educate them.

The consciously disarmed need to realize that gun owners are a positive force in society. They need to realize they are getting a free ride on gun owners’ responsibility, training, and use of firearms.

The left has done everything it can to demonize gun ownership. Isbell’s tweet illustrates the educational challenge Second Amendment supporters face.

It can be done. We are winning. Show someone who thinks they support banning “assault weapons” what they really ban. Show them they are being manipulated. I remember explaining the “assault weapons” ban to a fellow veteran 15 years ago. He was shocked. He thought the meant machine guns!

People do not like to be manipulated. Remind them that semi-automatic guns have been common in the United States for over a hundred years, but mass murder with semi-automatic guns is a recent phenomena, promoted by the media. Remind them the media makes profits from the tragedies and use them for ideological purposes.

Take a non-shooter to the range. Have them shoot a .22, with hearing protection, at a close target.

Many people become gun owners from such an experience.

Show people, who are not gun owners that guns are used for defensive purposes every day. From the Center for Disease Control:

Defensive use of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence, although the exact number remains disputed (Cook and Ludwig, 1996; Kleck, 2001a). Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million (Kleck, 2001a), in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008 (BJS, 2010). On the other hand, some scholars point to a radically lower estimate of only 108,000 annual defensive uses based on the National Crime Victimization Survey (Cook et al., 1997). The variation in these numbers remains a controversy in the field. The estimate of 3 million defensive uses per year is based on an extrapolation from a small number of responses taken from more than 19 national surveys. The former estimate of 108,000 is difficult to interpret because respondents were not asked specifically about defensive gun use.

Second Amendment Supporters are winning. The facts, the Constitution, and the culture are on their side.

Trump Ending Welfare-Dependent Immigration, Saving Taxpayers Billions

H/T Breitbart.

I applaud President Trump for making this bold move.

You can not get into Mexico if you are going to be on welfare there.

I look for the DemocRats and their ilk will file lawsuits.

If you can not support yourself we do not need or want you.

 

President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.

A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.

The regulation will be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.

A recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) study notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.

In California — with the largest noncitizen population in the country at almost 11 million or nearly 30 percent of the state’s total population — more than seven-in-ten, or 72 percent, of households headed by noncitizens are on at least one form of welfare. Compare that to the findings that only about seven-in-twenty, or 35 percent, of native-born households in California are on welfare.

(Center for Immigration Studies)

Preventing Americans from being forced to foot the bill for welfare for newly arrived legal immigrants is hugely popular among U.S. voters. A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in 2017 revealed that more than six-in-ten voters, or 62 percent, said they would support a plan that bans legal immigrants from receiving welfare for at least the first five years of their residency in the country. Roughly 67 percent of swing voters and nearly 60 percent of black Americans said they would support such a plan.

Another 76 percent of U.S. voters said welfare users should be mandated to prove that they are not in the country illegally before being allowed to obtain public benefits, including 74 percent of black Americans, 77 percent of swing voters, and 63 percent of Democrat voters.

Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs.

 

 

How Chocolate Helped To Win The War

Pacific Paratrooper

Seventy-five years ago, more than 160,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy during the D-Day invasion.  And while we all know that day served as a huge turning point for the Allied cause, you probably haven’t thought much about what those soldiers carried with them to eat during and after the invasion.

Food had to be lightweight, nutritious and very high in energy; after all, these men were about to invade Nazi-occupied land.  As it so happens, the one substance that could fulfill all those requirements was a very unlikely it — a Hershey’s chocolate bar.

D ration chocolate bar

The Hershey Chocolate company was approached back in 1937 about creating a specially designed bar just for U.S. Army emergency rations.  According to Hershey’s chief chemist, Sam Hinkle, the U.S. government had just four requests about their new chocolate bars: (1) they had to weigh 4 ounces; (2)…
