Baltimore Officials Finally Admit They Gave a Police Stand Down Order During Violent Riots following Death of Freddie Gray
THE CITY OF BALTIMORE IS ABOUT TO HAVE THE PANTS SUED OFF THEM AS OFFICIALS GAVE STAND DOWN ORDERS THAT CAUSED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGES TO PROPERTY …
Despite months of denials by top city officials, the Baltimore Sun is reporting that police officers trying to do their duty during the April riots that rocked the city were ordered not to engage the mob to protect businesses being threatened by violence, even when they were under direct attack themselves. The Baltimore Sun reports that police commanders now admit they told officers to “hold the line” and not engage rioters several times on the day of the funeral for Freddie Gray. The result was complete anarchy and the destruction, burning and looting of Baltimore.
This is what happens when you tell the police to stand down and give the rioters their space.
Baltimore police commanders acknowledge that they ordered officers not to engage rioters multiple times on the day of Freddie Gray’s funeral but said they did so to protect officers and citizens as they prioritized life over property.
In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts and six top commanders who directed deployments on April 27 denied that they gave blanket orders to do nothing as rioters looted, raided businesses and even attacked officers with impunity.
More than two months after riots broke out across Baltimore, top brass and rank-and-file officers continue to spar over how platoons of officers were deployed that day. About 160 officers were injured in the riots and businesses suffered millions of dollars in damage.
Batts has repeatedly denied issuing a “stand down” order — akin to ordering a withdrawal — while officers say they were in effect given such an order, either over the radio or in person, when they were told “do not engage” or “hold the line.”

TV Land Pulls Dukes of Hazzard TV Show from Its Schedule … Remember When it was OK to Just Watch TV?
THE UNITED STATES HAS OFFICIALLY LOST ITS PC MIND … WHO KNEW DAISY DUKE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EVILS OF RACISM.
Just when you thought liberal thought and political correctness could not get any worse in the United States, it did. Yesterday, TV Land pulled the TV show, ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off their programming schedule. In the wake of the church shooting in South Carolina and the agenda driven attack on the Confederate flag, the Dukes of Hazzard was made to be a scape goat in the out of control PC land we live in. UNREAL. So now an 80′s TV show that was a comedy is too offensive. As stated at RWN, Remember how ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ was a hotbed of racism and Confederate sympathy? Yeah. Me neither. Let this be a lesson to Americans that are apathetic and asleep at the wheel. Is racism a terrible thing and should the church shooter who killed 9 innocent black church goers an evil individual who should be put down like a rabid animal, yes. However, the LEFT had much more in mind and has exploited this terrible mass shooting for its own agenda.
Following the shootings in Charleston at the hands of a racist, Charleston and the families of the victims stood strong in unison against what Dylann Roof stood for and marched together. The families of those murdered even proclaimed they forgave Roof and prayed for him. For as much as what the good people of Charleston did and stood for following this heinous act, the same cannot be said who have acted in such a cowardly manner. Yes, that includes you TV Land.
TV Land has pulled reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard off its schedule, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to EW on Wednesday.
The network did not comment further or say why the episodes were removed, but the news comes as the show became part of the growing national debate over use of the Confederate flag, which is displayed on the roof of the Duke boys’ car.
Last week, Warner Bros. Consumer Products said it would no longer license toys or models of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, dubbed General Lee, joining a number of other retailers vowing to stop selling Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of the deadly shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, earlier this month.
So what’s next on the Liberals agenda to ban … Gone with the Wind? What other TV shows and movies will be found too offensive for the delicate constitutions of the LEFT? Hey, while you are at it, ban the move Glory, they showed Confederate flags in that one too. Does the LEFT even have a clue what the move was about?
Any TV network with a brain would buy the rights to the syndicated broadcasts of the Dukes of Hazzard and make a mint. At what point will there be a backlash to this over the top nonsense, much like what happened when the LEFT and gay activists tried to target Chick Fil-A?
Former President Jimmy Carter Says, Obama’s Successes on World Stage “Have Been Minimal” … “US’s Influence & Prestige & Respect in the World is probably Lower than it was 6 or 7 Years Ago.” (VIDEO)
JIMMY CARTER SAYS OBAMA HAS HAD MINIMAL SUCCESSES ON THE WORLD STAGE … I GUESS THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD.
Former President Jimmy Carter ripped Barack Obama in a recent interview stating that Obama’s successes on the world stage “have been minimal.” WOW, that says a lot coming from this disaster of a president on the world stage. Not only did Carter say that Obama’s accomplishments were minimal, he also stated that US influence and prestige in the world was lower than it was 6 or 7 years ago. But Carter doesn’t want to be called a racist so he says’ he doesn’t blame Obama for his failures on the world stage. Of course Obama isn’t to blame, why would anyone in the Democrat party hold him accountable for his failures? Um, then who is to blame, GWB? Or would it be Hillary Clinton’s fault? After all, Carter proclaimed John Kerry was “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
After proclaiming John Kerry “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had,” Carter dumped cold water on Obama’s record abroad.
“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”
“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.

29 year old Amanda Waller has been missing since Thursday, June 25, 2015 while she was snorkeling with her husband and friends along Cas Abou Beach in the Caribbean island of Curacao. When the snorkeling group returned to shore about 20 minutes later, they realized that Waller was missing. Days of searching by the Coast Guard and volunteer divers have turned up no clues. There have been searches in the water and on the land as it is not known whether Amanda Waller from Katy, Texas made it to shore or not.
Anthony Waller told KHOU that his sister-in-law, Amanda Waller, 29, was snorkeling with her husband and friends along Cas Abou Beach around 3 p.m. Thursday, June 25, when she went missing.
Matt Myers, who was part of that snorkeling group, told KHOU that after snorkeling and taking pictures in the water, one of the women became tired and began swimming to shore.
He says a couple minutes later, Amanda Waller began swimming after her.
However, when the group returned to shore about 20 minutes later, they realized that Waller was missing.
After an unsuccessful search in the water, Myers says they called the Coast Guard, who arrived within 30 minutes to begin the search.
VIDEO below of snorkeling not related to this case but to provide context of what it looks like. The water appears to be calm and extremely clear. It is hard to imagine one could not find a person in such water.
A missing-person alert on the GoFundMe page urges people to call police or the U.S. Embassy if they see Waller.
- Even though they claimed to have been caught off guard, they had already predicted an increase and expect there to be 127,000 this year many of which are juveniles
NBC Fires Donald Trump for Un-PC Comments on Illegal Immigration But Keeps News Anchor Lying Brian Williams
NBC TO DONALD TRUMP, YOU’RE FIRED … WELCOME TO LIBERAL INTOLERANCE AND THE MSM DOUBLE STANDARD.
Look what happens when you dare take a position that goes against the liberal MSM. NBC has cut ties with Donald Trump following the comments the Donald made over a week ago when he announced his candidacy for the president of the United States. NBC stated that the network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump. NBC stated in a press release that, “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.” Hmm, really? NBC has respect and dignity for all people, who knew? Unless you are a Conservative, member of the Tea Party, or anyone who dare disagree with the liberal agenda.
NBC is ending its business relationship with Donald Trump over his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” NBC said in a statement. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
The network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump, the statement added. Its relationship with “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue, as Trump ceased his involvement with the reality show during his presidential bid.
The real estate mogul and 2016 presidential candidate has faced criticism for comments he made during his announcement speech earlier this month.
Donald Trump: NBC will stand behind ‘lying’ Brian Williams, but it won’t stand behind me
What about NBC’s values regarding telling the truth? I guess that is not high on their list or a cornerstone of their values. Isn’t it quite telling about NBC that they would fire Donald Trump for speaking his opinion, yet NBC kept news anchor, “lying” Brian William after it had been documented that he had lied too many times to keep track while reporting the news. But that is OK and keeping in line with NBC values. Because that showed dignity and respect. This is the same network that also employees Al Sharpton, who has made fabricated comments as well.
