10 Year Old Nickolas Taylor Suspended from School for Using his Finger as an Imaginary Gun

 

What ever happened to common sense in this country … note to educators, ITS A FINGER!!!

10 year Nickolas Taylor was suspended from Milford’s Stacy Middle School for pointing his finger and using it as an imaginary ray gun in the school’s cafeteria. HUH? It gets even more ridiculous. According to school administrators, two students reported to the assistant principal that they believed the gesture Nickolas made was threatening. THREATENING? The fifth grader was written a conduct slip by Assistant Principal Noah Collins, who listed the offense as a threat. Thus, the brain surgeons at the school state that the discipline consistent with “other incidents of a threatening nature.”

If a school is going to punish every individual for what some child in this day makes them feel uncomfortable, there is going to be a very full detention class. Of course back in the day what Nickolas did would have been common place and no one would have thought anything of it. We’ve come a long way.

Finger Gun

Yup, looks really threatening to me, sarcasm intended.

A child was suspended for two days after reportedly pointing an imaginary gun at school.

Nickolas Taylor, 10, was suspended last Friday from Milford’s Stacy Middle School after pointing his finger and using it as an imaginary ray gun in the school’s cafeteria.

“It’s totally ridiculous, it’s not right at all,” Rory O’Brien, Nickolas’ grandfather, told FOX 25 News.

According to school administrators, two students reported to the assistant principal that they believed the gesture Nickolas made was threatening. The fifth grader was reportedly written a conduct slip by Assistant Principal Noah Collins, who listed the offense as a threat.

Nickolas was suspended, discipline consistent with “other incidents of a threatening nature,” a statement from the school said on Wednesday.

Nickolas has no history of discipline outside detentions for incomplete school work, said Brian Taylor.

Nickolas has been diagnosed with ADHD and sometimes is disciplined because he is hyperactive and fails to focus, Brian Taylor said.

Just curious, has anyone in authority at this school ever heard of the word discretion? How about you explain to the child not to do this in the future and explain what was wrong. Not suspending him from school.

Friday Night Ferguson, MO Protests … ‘We Don’t Give a F*CK About Your Laws’

 

As the grand jury deliberates on a decision whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18 year old Michael Brown, the protest pressure cooker is close to blowing …

Ahead of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri in the shooting death of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, local, state and federal authorities have beefed up their forces to prepare for the reaction. They have asked for calm. However, the protesters leading up to the eventual grand jury decision have been anything but. Friday night was no different as protesters responded to police by chanting ”F*ck the police” and shouting “We don’t give a f*ck about your laws like you don’t give a f*ck about our lives.”

This is going to get ugly, really ugly.

Warning: Adult language

The NRO:

The protests in Ferguson, Mo., on Friday night grew larger than previous days’ gatherings of protesters, despite the rain and cold weather. Police officers used a megaphone to ask protesters to leave the street outside the Ferguson Police Department or they would be arrested. In this video, protesters responded by chanting ”F— the police” and shouting “We don’t give a f— about your laws like you don’t give a f— about our lives.”

Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is still agitating until the very end. Holder urged police to show restraint in handling any protests that flare after the grand jury’s decision. REALLY? ARE YOU KIDDING? All hell is going to break loose in Ferguson if the grand jury does not come back with a murder indictment. Even with that, there will probably still be protests and riots. Just curious, how about telling the agitators to do the same?

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder urged police to show restraint in handling any protests that flare after the grand jury’s decision as tensions simmered in Ferguson, Missouri, over a case that has become a flashpoint for U.S. race relations.

Even Former Obama Mouthpiece Jay Carney Admits that Emperor Barack Obama Flip-Flopped on What The One Can Do on Immigration

 

YOU KNOW IT IS BAD WHEN EVEN YOUR FORMER CHIEF SPINMEISTER SAYS YOU FLIP-FLOPPED AND CNN QUESTIONS OBAMA …

Jay Carney, Barack Obama’s former Press Secretary, when asked what had changed for President Obama on immigration, he said that Barack Obama is doing a 180 today on what he has said he could do in the past. While appearing on CNN’s 360 with Anderson Cooper after Obama’s immigration executive order speech, after being confronted with video of Obama’s past comments on immigration, Carney stated, “I think if he could have his words back, especially where he specifically talked about suspending deportation. That is literally what he is doing today.”

In other words, Obama for for the US Constitution, before he was against it. Or, does it all depend on what the meaning of “separation of powers” is?

CNN Host, Anderson Cooper:I just want to play again the presidents past comments on this because clearly there is a stark distinction on what he said tonight and what he said in the past.  [VIDEO]

CNN Host, Anderson Cooper: Other than his frustration, what has changed. I mean he is a Constitutional scholar, what has changed that allows him to do this?

Jay Carney: Here is what I say, think if he could have his words back, especially the first clip, where he specifically talked about suspending deportation. That is literally what he is doing today.” In later instances, including when I was there, he would speak very carefully about what he could not do as president.” [editors note: Carney was Obama's Press Secretary from January 27, 2011 to June 20, 2014.Who the hell is he kidding about Obama was more careful as to what he could and could not do? Watch the video below and see the dates of Obama's remarks. They are  March 2011, September 2011, September 2013 and February 2013. Every single one of the Barack Obama's comments was made when Carney was is press secretary. But this is what Obama and his minions do, lie, lie and when caught, lie some more.]

Other videos of Obama grubering on immigration.

The above video cuts off the last part of the discussion; however, this one (VIDEO) does not. Carney further goes on to say that, “He Obama] can’t change the law. He can’t provide a path to citizenship. He can’t do the things that only Congress can do.” Then Carney does what any uber-Lib does best … Carney defended Obama’s actions, even though he just said Obama couldn’t do them.

AMERICA … ONCE AGAIN OBAMA HAS “GRUBERED” YOU!

IRSGATE: IRS Inspector General Tells Congress They Have Found as Many as 30,000 of Lois Lerner Supposedly Irretrievable, Missing Emails

 

Hey Lois Lerner … YOU GOT MAIL!!!

IRS investigators have informed Congress that they have located as many as 30,000 of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails. The emails that were said have been permanently lost after a convenient hard drive crash of her computer. Remember when  John Koskinen, the new IRS commissioner,  testified under oath to Congress on June 20th the emails had been irretrievably lost. Hmm, I guess not so much, eh? Where were those found? The inspector general discovered the potential emails among 744 disaster recovery tapes that backup IRS systems. Just where everyone said they would be. However, why had the IRS not found her emails sooner? Judicial Watch announced earlier this month that  the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) admitted to the court that it failed to search any of the IRS standard computer systems for the “missing” emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials.

IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THIS SCANDAL IS NOT OVER, ESPECIALLY WITH THE GOP TAKING CONTROL OF THE SENATE NEXT YEAR.

Email_ you got mail

The IRS’s inspector general has told Congress that it may have discovered as many as 30,000 of the lost Lois G. Lerner emails, despite the IRS’s repeated insistence both in testimony to both Capitol Hill and federal courts that they were beyond recovery, congressional committees said Friday.

Investigators are now trying to figure out if they can to the data in a readable format — a process that could take weeks, according to a congressional aide.

The inspector general discovered the potential emails among 744 disaster recovery tapes that backup IRS systems, and found up to 30,000 Lerner emails from 2009 to 2011, which covers the period of emails she reported lost in a computer hard drive crash.

The revelation raised a host of questions about the IRS’s claims that the emails had been irretrievably lost — assertions the agency and its new chief, John Koskinen, had made both while testifying under oath to Congress and in court papers defending against lawsuits from several of the conservative groups who had been denied approval for nonprofit status.

The missing emails extend from 2009 to 2011, a period when Lerner headed the IRS’s exempt-organizations division.
The emails were lost when Lerner’s computer crashed, IRS officials said earlier this year.

Now what are the odds that there will be any incriminating emails delivered to Congress. Not only does the IRS need to produce Lerner’s emails, they also need to produce all of the emails of all the other individuals who Lois Lerner emailed. We all know you can delete the received and sent accounts of emails. It is the email chain that becomes the smoking gun of who the emails were sent to and forwarded to from third parties.

Obama Administration Paid Ransom and Released 5 Top Gitmo Detainees for Army Deserter Bowe Bergdahl

 

I thought the United States did not pay ransoms to terrorists?

It turns out that the Obama administration did pay money to terrorists in an attempt to get the release of Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl. UNREAL. The Department of Defense did pay a ransom for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl but the transaction’s Afghan middle man ran off with the cash. This goes against previous Pentagon statements in 2009 where they denied doing any such thing. LIARS!!!  The ransom payment also goes against President Obama’s strategy finical strategy in pressuring foreign governments, corporations and families of captives not to pay ransom. What are the odds we will hear Obama say, he just learned about this scandal too? But when that failed, Obama did the next worse thing … released 5 GITMO terrorists for a deserter.

The Department of Defense attempted to pay a ransom for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl but the transaction’s Afghan intermediary ran off with the cash, according to a member of the House Armed Services Committee.

The claims directly contradict statements from the Pentagon, which has vehemently denied that it paid cash to a Taliban splinter group that captured Bergdahl in 2009. The administration in May released five-value Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Bergdahl’s release.

Remember following the release of Bowe Bergdahl, FOX News reported that the Obama administration may have given the Taliban and Haqqani terrorists money as well as the five top Taliban prisoners? Watch the VIDEO below of the Catherine Herridge interview with Greta Van Susteran and On the Record.

VIDEO Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit

The Washington Times:

The Pentagon is under fire for making a ransom payment to an Afghan earlier this year as part of a failed bid to win the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, according to U.S. officials.

Sgt. Bergdahl was released in May after nearly five years in captivity as part of a controversial exchange for five terrorists held at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The ransom payment was first disclosed by Rep. Duncan Hunter in a Nov. 5 letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Mr. Hunter stated in the letter that Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) made the payment covertly as part of a release deal. But the money was stolen by the Afghan intermediary claiming to represent the Haqqani terrorist network.

“Given the significance of this matter, as well as the fact that Pentagon officials have denied that a payment was even considered — and you also said you were unaware of any such attempt — I ask you to immediately inquire with JSOC to determine the specific order of events,” said Mr. Hunter, California Republican and member of the House Armed Services Committee.

Mr. Hunter also asked Mr. Hagel whether ransom payments are being considered for other captives.

Disclosure of the ransom payment undermines a key financial element of President Obama’s strategy to counter the Islamic State — pressuring foreign governments, corporations and families of captives not to pay ransom. In a speech in September, David S. Cohen, Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said the Islamic State made $20 million this year in ransoming hostages.

Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in Talks to Resign; as Grand Jury Decision Nears

 

Even if officer Darren Wilson is not indicted on any charges, he is forced to resign …

As we all wait for the the grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, CNN is reporting that Officer Wilson is in talks to resign. Wilson is supposedly in the final stages of talks to resign. Previously, Ferguson Chief of Police Tom Jackson said that Officer Wilson would be immediately returned back to active duty if he is not indicted. That seems not to be the case. Officer Wilson continues to maintains he has done nothing wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in Brown’s death. His reason for leaving his job has more to do with easing pressure and protect his fellow officers. The sad reality is though, a police officer may not only be found not guilty of a crime, he may not even be indicted of one and still pretty much be forced to resign. That is what happens when community agitators come to town.

As a grand jury gets closer to announcing its decision, Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown, is in the final stages of negotiations with city officials to resign, sources close to the talks said.

The grand jury hearing evidence is preparing to meet Friday for what might be its final session. A decision on whether to charge Wilson in the death of the unarmed teen could come the same day, law enforcement officials have said.

Wilson maintains he has done nothing wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in Brown’s death, the sources said.

While Wilson has told associates he would resign to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, he’s expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.

Wilson could announce as soon as Friday his plans to resign, the same day a St. Louis County grand jury meets to deliberate and possibly decide on an indictment.

Remember When Emperor Barack Obama Said He Did Not Have the Power to Take Executive Action on Immigration?

 

Not only does the Emperor have no clothes, he has no credibility and no Constitutional authority …

Remember when Emperor Barack Obama said the following:

  • “I take the Constitution very seriously, the biggest problems that we facing right now is George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that is what I intend to reverse when I am President of the United States of America.”
  • “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system.”
  • “For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
  • “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”
  • “There are laws on the books that I have to enforce”.
  • “If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.”
  • “This notion that I can change laws unilaterally is just not true”.

Really Mr. President? Because last night when you announced your executive order on immigration, you pretty much did a 180 on every single previous remark you have ever made on the issue. So much for the rule of law and the US Constitution. If Barack Obama cared so much about these families and even went so far to cite scripture, why didn’t he do it sooner? Just curious, does Obama care about the American legal citizens whose families are about t be affected by this influx? How about all the people who came to the United States legally?

VIDEO Hat Tip: Washington Free Beacon

The Hill:

The president will also announce plans to shift enforcement efforts, ordering federal law enforcement officers to narrow their focus to those illegal immigrants with criminal records, gang affiliations or ties to terrorism.

And Obama will expand the total number of high-tech visas that are available, as well as loosen restrictions so that more would-be entrepreneurs can travel legally to the United States to launch companies.

The president and other Cabinet and senior administration officials plan to “fan out” across the country over the coming weeks in order to promote the executive actions, according to one aide.

The moves are all aimed at “bringing some accountability to our broken immigration system,” a senior administration official said Thursday.

The biggest change to the immigration system will be a new program that allows the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents to apply for work permits and deferred deportation.

An estimated 4 million parents will be eligible for the initiative. They are people who have been in the United States for at least five years and have no felony convictions but are currently in the country illegally.
