Congressional Black Caucus Head: Ferguson Decision Shows ‘Black Lives Hold No Value’

Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, put out a statement tonight reacting to the Ferguson grand jury decision, saying it’s another example of the “unwritten rule that Black lives hold no value.”

Here is Fudge’s full statement:

The Ferguson Grand Jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown is a miscarriage of justice. It is a slap in the face to Americans nationwide who continue to hope and believe that justice will prevail.

This decision seems to underscore an unwritten rule that Black lives hold no value; that you may kill Black men in this country without consequences or repercussions.

It is people like this woman who are commies and need to shut up! She is a typical example of Blacks that do not obey the laws....like Michael Brown....he had what was coming to him...KARMA! What goes around comes back around...so PHOEY on Al Sharpton and the rest of those Blacks...Nooo...the System works just fine without your anti American, Anti White attitudes. Why the hell don't you just go back to AFRICA where you belong...and take your BITCHIN With you! It is the Fault and continues to be the Fault of Parents who do not RAISE THEIR KIDS PROPERLY. Just goes to show these sort of Blacks are so low in the intelligent level they are a disgrace to other blacks who have made it. P.S. I look forward to any such WAR with you certain Blacks and especially the stupid New Black Panther asses. Bring it ON! OH by the Way Marcia Fudge, you yourself are a miscarriage of justice even being allow to be elected.

GB: Could not have said it any better! GOOD JOB!

The blacks are so damn STUPID they can't help themselves!

I wish they WOULD all go back to Africa and take their leader

obama with them!

None of them will ever leave....got it made here, despite what they say and do....how could they possible even find a Getto Car with 30 inch (1K $$ each) wheels for it??  I earned my Military retirement pay (some of it in Vietnam)...paid into my SS and get that now at 71 yoa. Getto Moms in LA...take home more than I do....theirs is tax free...mine is not....I have to pay for my Cell phone, they do not....I pay my power bill...they do not!!!  On and on...makes me want to throw up....Thanks for Ferguson Holder/Jarrett/Hussein....see what happens tonight!!

If you have looked at the positions taken by the Congressional Black Caucus, you know that "commie" really applies, along with "socialist", liberal's liberals, progressives (at the front of the handout line), far left Democrats.  They know of no handout for which they don't have their hand out (or in our pocket)!

Whites die every day, do the blakkokus give a holy sh_it? We need a White Caucus in congress, most every one else seems to have one!!

Brown was a 300lb.  6'4" thug, attacked the officer with such violent force, he broke bones in the officers face.

I would empty my weapon on such an attack!!!

Why do blacks continue to play the role of government dupe? o is making sure blacks stay poor and stupid by giving amnesty plus all the jobs to illegals. Blacks should be uniting with true Costitutional Patriots rather than following their stats quo!!

This woman is an idiot and as a political figure, she should be tarred and feathered!     We have well over 40 million illegals that are now legal democrats (doubt that only 5 million got legalized)   Criminals are getting released from Gitmo!    This administration could give a rats ass about any American!    So Ferguson---- get off the soap box already and realize that this is nothing but a smoke screen for this corrupt illegal administration and you are being used to the hilt !

They are too STUPID to know any better!

Obama has sold them all out, the illegals are

going to have their jobs and they still do not

even know which way is UP! HA! HA! HA!

You got just what you deserved: OBAMA

Black lives who choose to act like rabid Tasmanian devils are worth no value as is white, brown, red or yellow. It's just that the black leadership, democrat party and the American media really do believe "black lives" are worthless and therefore uses and treats them like rabid animals.

She's partially right - black lives hold no value.  That's shown by the stupid blacks torching their own neighborhood businesses and stealing everything they can.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD TELL THE BLACKS NOT TO ROB STORES OR GET INTO AN ALTERCATION WITH AND ATTACK A POLICE OFFICER....MAYBE YOU SHOULD INFORM THOSE BLACK COMMUNITIES THAT IN MANY AREAS THEY COMMIT 75 PERCENT OF THE CRIMES...MAYBE IN CITIES LIKE DETROIT AND CHICAGO...THOSE BLACKS SHOULD STOP KILLING EACH OTHER AND THEN PUT THE BLAME ON THE WHITES....MAYBE THE BLACK THUG CULTURE....THE RAP CULTURE THAT DEMEANS WOMEN AND ADVOCATES KILLING COPS SHOULD BE OUTRAGED BY THE BLACKS.....MAYBE IF THE BLACKS WOULD STOP LISTENING TO THE DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS, THE BLACK RACE BAITERS, AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN SITUATION....THINGS WOULD GET BETTER. grand juries go on all over the united states everyday...and their job has nothing to do social justice or fairness. they must go by the crimes committed and the evidence, witnesses and something called the truth...jury trials are based on the same thing...and our courts are not designed to solve social justice issues or make people feel better...the president, eric holder...and all of the racial community organizers are just a part of the problems as those that are burning down the businesses in ferguson...so after 6 years of president Obama...60 years of democrat policies, welfare and social justice...we are no better off today than we were back in the 1950's.

Al, you don't understand, looting, rioting, demeaning women, killing cops - those are the chosen professions of too many (but not all) blacks.  Rep. Fudge just wants the "get out of jail free" card she knows they will need!

Al....very well said!  Strangest "excuse" for all this is the local black "leaders" there in St Lois complaining that 75 percent of the stops, tickets, arrest are blacks...don't mention that 75 percent of the residents are black!!??

The Cops would have to start arresting whites in the next predominantly white community and let the purps go there...to change those numbers.....what blatant, idiotic, racists they are!!!!!!!!!!

ALERT ALERT

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors.

NJ.com adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
