No Need For Evidence: Minnesota Governor Declares Shooting Racist, Obama Declares Justice System Racist

This morning, I asked why Americans couldn’t wait for the facts to emerge on the shootings of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota before jumping to racial conclusions. This afternoon, America’s top Democratic politicians proved why: they need to race-bait.

Early this afternoon, without waiting to hear any of the evidence, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton called the shooting of Castile racist: “Would this have happened if the driver and the passengers where white? I don’t think it would have. This kind of racism exists and it’s incumbent on all of us to vow and ensure that it doesn’t continue to happen.”

President Obama also issued a racially inflammatory statement:

All Americans should be deeply troubled by the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. We've seen such tragedies far too many times, and our hearts go out to the families and communities who've suffered such a painful loss.

Although I am constrained in commenting on the particular facts of these cases, I am encouraged that the U.S. Department of Justice has opened a civil rights investigation in Baton Rouge, and I have full confidence in their professionalism and their ability to conduct a thoughtful, thorough, and fair inquiry.

But regardless of the outcome of such investigations, what's clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.

What is your answer to this question: 

Did Obama Incite The Dallas Cop Killings? (here)

To admit we've got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day. It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement.

That's why, two years ago, I set up a Task Force on 21st Century Policing that convened police officers, community leaders, and activists. Together, they came up with detailed recommendations on how to improve community policing. So even as officials continue to look into this week's tragic shootings, we also need communities to address the underlying fissures that lead to these incidents, and to implement those ideas that can make a difference. That's how we'll keep our communities safe. And that's how we can start restoring confidence that all people in this great nation are equal before the law.

In the meantime, all Americans should recognize the anger, frustration, and grief that so many Americans are feeling -- feelings that are being expressed in peaceful protests and vigils. Michelle and I share those feelings. Rather than fall into a predictable pattern of division and political posturing, let's reflect on what we can do better. Let's come together as a nation, and keep faith with one another, in order to ensure a future where all of our children know that their lives matter.

This is nonsense. First off, there is no systematic pattern of black men being shot for racial reasons by law enforcement. One study at the Washington State University found that “even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects.” And according to Professor Peter Moskos of John Jay College of Criminal Justice at City University of New York, “If one adjusts for the racial disparity in the homicide rate or the rate at which police are feloniously killed, whites are actually more likely to be killed by police than blacks… Adjusted for the homicide rate, whites are 1.7 times more likely than blacks die at the hands of police. Adjusted for the racial disparity at which police are feloniously killed, whites are 1.3 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police.”

Next, incompetence by cops does not automatically translate into racism. Police officers are frequently involved in controversial shootings. Sometimes, those shootings are egregiously bad. That still does not mean the officers in question hate black people – it could also mean they don’t know what they’re doing.

Finding him was accidental apparently according to the text, "this guy looks like the guy in the armed robbery..."

Because he apparently had a firearm and intended on using it... the video is not conclusive on what was gong on with regard to the weapon in the car.  The girl friend's testimony is only PART OF THE STORY... we must wait for the REST OF THE STORY..

Recall Tawana Brawley, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and others... that upon full examination proved to be hoaxes or justified.

Well Gawlee the dumbest fake president, calls his Injustice department Racist, now does it get any dumber then that.

"Well Gawlee the dumbest fake president, calls his Injustice department Racist, now does it get any dumber then that."

Give Obama time; what little time he has left.

UNLESS..........he creates such chaos over the entire country and uses martial law...

I guess the age old terminology of being innocent until proven guilty has been done away with by the Minnesota Governor and Obama.  I have about as much confidence in the justice system coming up with an equatable system as I do of me walking on water.  Evidentlyi that committee he appointed 2 years ago hasn't been very effective.  I still remind folks that there have been more whites killed this year than blacks but we don't hear anything about that.  Evidently White lives don't matter to thiss Administration .  It is also interesting that the police in Dallas last night did not have riot gear on because it makes demonstrators uncomfortable.  I wonder if aniy lives would have been saved if they would of had riot gear on?  Yes I agree with him on one statement.  I am also feeling anger, frustration and grief but I'm not going to go out and insult and harass the pollice and march up and down the street.   If I had a AR15 I certainly wouold not take it out to a demonstration where there is more of a chance of an outburst of anger. (And that guy wants the Police to appologize to him.  Get a life that demonstration wasn't all about you and the fact that you had an AR - 15.)  Another thing that I asked byself last night when I was watching all of that unfold here in Dallas, was why in the world would you take a child to a so called peaceful demonstration?  I also asked that in regard to the lady pushing one in a baby carriage.  I know those parents can take their children any where they want to but the question came to me what was their priority, "The safety of their child or demonstrating".  I guess I'm old fashion because I would not have taken any one of my 4 children there even if they were teenagers or older.  I guess somebody should have bought a calculater last night as the organizer said there was 1500 to 2000 and the police said 800.  One thing we all need to learn, Black, White, Brown, Asian etc. is That World was not created just for us or me."  It was created for all races and we were all created equally.  Note I said created.  That is the message that we need to have out there.  That is the Message that I felt Martin Luthee King was giving us plus that the segregation and racism is a SIN and we are alll sinners.  We need to get back to the word . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here is just a quick look at that Dumbcrat gov.

Mark Brandt Dayton is an American politician and the 40th and current Governor of Minnesota, serving since 2011. He was previously a United States Senator for Minnesota from 2001 to 2007, and the Minnesota State Auditor from 1991 to 1995. Wikipedia

"In the meantime, all Americans should recognize the anger, frustration, and grief that so many Americans are feeling -- feelings that are being expressed in peaceful protests and vigils." 

Mr. President which peaceful protest and vigils are you referring to: Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore Maryland, or Dallas, Texas?  You are such a hypocrite, a divider and dissimulator... an agitator for racial violence, and public unrest... Please do us all a favor and RESIGN NOW.

What can you expect from the Trouble Maker in chief and a libtard from Minnesota, those people are as fanatics liberals as muslims are for Islam.

Alton.....yeah right........another "angel" like Michael Brown?   SERIOUSLY?????


EXPOSED: The 911 Call Before Alton Sterlings Death That BLM Doesn’t Want Heard


The 37-year-old sex offender killed in Baton Rouge may have been hailed a hero by the Black Lives Mattermovement for being shot by a cop, but details from a 911 call placed just before the incident revealed a very different side of the story.

A homeless man placed the call, saying that Alton Sterling had threatened him with a gun after asking him for money, according to CNN.

Video has also been released from the surveillance camera at the crime scene in front of the convenience store showing what appeared to be a gun being removed from Sterling’s possession.

The 310-pound Sterling was placed on the sex offender list after being convicted of having had sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl when he was 20.

In 2009, he was caught up in a wrestling match with a police officer when a handgun fell from his waistband and he was arrested.

He had a lengthy criminal record. With assault and battery incidents as well as a domestic battery case, Sterling didn’t appear to have had much respect for the police or the law at all.

The media narrative coming from the liberal establishment and the Black Lives Matter crowd has been that Sterling was just an innocent man selling compact discs in front of a convenience store when police decided, for no particular reason, to gun him down.

The Tuesday night protest of Sterling’s shooting was estimated at 800 people. Another 500 showed up at the convenience store the following evening.

The Department of Justice has said they will investigate the conduct of officers during the shooting.

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter to spread the truth about Alton Sterling and his extensive criminal past.

Does Sterling's criminal history change your opinion about what these officers did?

http://conservativetribune.com/911-call-before-sterlings-death/?utm...

It appears that certain factions are working overtime to divide this nation along ethnic, social and economic lines, e.g. The New Black Panthers, BLM, The Nation of Islam, CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc.

It also appears that individuals and members of those groups are willing to forgive or overlook the illegal activities the deceased were engaged it at the time of the incident.  That is not to say they should have died but we know from experience that conclusions have been drawn from the highest office in the land on down to the streets before any of the evidence had been collected or the investigations concluded.

This is an excuse to cause an uprising and once again, the Democrats aka Leftists/Socialist/Communist/Globalist/Islamists are using Black Americans to do their dirty work. You have to wonder when they will come to the realization that they are chumps?

Here;s a different angle from people I would NOT have expected...


Rappers Come Together To Express Support For Police, Open Dialogue

"While I have all these cameras on me..."


Rappers Snoop Dogg and The Game led a peaceful march on Friday to the Los Angeles Police Department Headquarters, where they expressed their support for work of law enforcement and their desire for an open dialogue.

Appearing at a joint press conference with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck, Snoop Dogg said, “We are here to show love and support to the police force and get some understanding and some communication.” 

The rapper added, “Our whole mission today was to move in peace and to show that LA can be unified, and not to bash the police, but to come up here and get some dialogue and communication, because we are all angels like [Mayor Garcetti] said. We are all for Los Angeles. We all represent the same cause, and we all want to go home to our families. Today was the first step to many steps.”

The Game, whose legal name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, said during the press conference, “While I have all these cameras on me … I want to tell everyone that has their eyes on me that I love you — no matter what race you’re from, no matter where you come from, no matter what gang you’re from or what police force you stand for, what badge you put on, what school you teach, whoever you are in the world,” he continued. “If you are a human being … this is a day of change … Embrace yourself in positivity.”

The Game also expressed hope that Los Angeles in coming together could set an example for the country and even the world. The performer said he had no idea when he called his friend Snoop Dogg and suggested they do the march that they would end up meeting the mayor and the police chief.

He also found it meaningful the march coincided with the graduation of a new class of police officers, who they were able to meet.

“Sometimes God works in mysterious ways,” Mayor Garcetti said of the two events converging. Both he and Chief Beck expressed their appreciation for the chance to meet with the rappers and discuss ways for better community relations.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
