Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Calls Charges Against 6 Baltimore Police Officers in the Death of Freddie Gray … “It’s a Miscarriage of Justice”
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke calls the charges against the 6 Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray by States Attorney Marilyn Mosby “a Miscarriage of Justice.” Sheriff David Clarke called her a neophyte and stated that she did it for political reasons to appease the mob.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) declared the charges brought against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray “George Zimmerman and the Duke Lacrosse case all over again” and said “these cops are political prisoners,” offered up as human sacrifices, thrown like red meat to an angry mob” on Friday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
Clarke said of the charges, “it’s a miscarriage of justice. This neophyte prosecutor stood up there and made a political statement, Neil, and I say that because she’s chanting or voicing some of the chants from this angry mob. Her job is to tune that out. She said, I hear the voices. She’s not supposed to hear anything as she reviews this case that is not consistent with the rule of law and our system of justice. Look, I’m an experienced and a veteran homicide detective. I’ve had — I’ve participated in charging conferences. There is no way I have ever gotten a criminal charge within 24 hours after taking over all the reports and evidence to a prosecutor. A prosecutor who is thorough needs several days to sift through hundreds of pages of reports. They usually want to interview some of the witnesses themselves, in person, and they have to sift through all of the evidence, piece by piece, and they have to wait for some of the forensics evidence to conclude, to come back and that’s why I say on a minimum, three to four days. She just got this case yesterday. This is political activism. She’ll never prove this beyond a reasonable doubt, and I’m not going to silently stand by and watch my brother officers, offered up as human sacrifices, thrown like red meat to an angry mob, just to appease this angry mob.” And that “she rushed this thing through.”

Six police officers, Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., Officer William Porter, Lt. Brian Rice, Sgt. Alicia White, Officer Edward Nero and Officer Garrett Miller have been charged in the death of Freddie Brown. So was this a political arrest or a criminal one? Was this done to appease the mob? As reported at CBS Baltimore, cheers erupted as City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby after she announced that the charges were brought against the police officers. The charges against the officers range from second degree depraved heart murder for the driver of the van to manslaughter to misconduct in office to false imprisonment.

Mosby’s announcement on the steps of the War Memorial Building was greeted with cheers and applause. Mosby said she told Gray’s family that “no one is above the law and I would pursue justice upon their behalf.”
The city was gearing up for another round of demonstrations after the announcement. Baltimore City and Maryland state offices granted workers in the city liberal leave early Friday afternoon.
After the charges were announced, Desmond Taylor, 29, shouted in jubilee in front of the War Memorial Building.
“I did not expect this, but I prayed for it,” he said. “This day means that your actions bring consequences in Baltimore City.”
REALLY, THE ONLY REASON WHY PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR HILLARY CLINTON IS BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN …
Just curious, would it be okay to say that you are voting for an individual because they were a man? And that being their only qualification? Face it America, Hillary Clinton after all her years in the public eye, after all her years in government as a US Senator and Secretary of State has accomplished nothing of accomplishment. In fact, the things she has done, like the Russian reset, Benghazi-gate and her private email server scandal have probably been more of a detriment than help.
Is America really going to vote an unqualified individual who cannot seem to tell the truth President of the United States just because she is a woman? Just how ignorant and foolish has this country become? When you think about the social experiment of voting in the first woman as president, just because she is a woman ask yourself … how did that social experiment work of voting for Barack Obama, the first black one? Enough said.
It seems many students at the University of Washington can’t think of any reason why they should vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — other than her gender.
Campus Reform headed to Seattle, Wash., and asked several college students if they were “ready for Hillary” and why they would vote for her.
“She’s a woman, and that’s literally all,” one female student told Campus Reform.
“Because it’s time we have a female president,” another woman said.

Pilot Doug Hughes Explains His Mission to Draw Attention to Campaign Finance Reform Before Landing at the Capitol with his Gyropcopter … Did He Just Provide a Blueprint for Terrorists?
THANKS DOUG, TERRORISTS NOW HAVE A NEW METHOD TO ATTACK WASHINGTON, DC …
Watch the VIDEO below of 61 year old Doug Hughes, a mail man, from Florida explains what his planned mission was and that he had planned it well in advance. Doug says that no sane man would do what he was going to do, ya think? He stated he carefully planned this stunt, and did not want to get hurt. Doug Hughes states that “terrorists don’t announce their fights before they take off. Terrorists don’t broadcast their flight path. Terrorists don’t invite an escort to go along with them.” Hmm, thanks to Dough Hughes and the idiotic reaction of the Capital police and Secret Service, I bet they do now.
Dough Hughes did this stunt in order to draw attention to campaign finance reform and most likely probably brought more attention to would-be terrorists and lone-wolfs in how to fly in a no-fly zone without getting blown out of the sky. Hughes says his intent was to deliver 535 letters strapped to the landing gear to give to members of Congress.
Doug Hughes’ close friend and co-worker, Mike Shanahan, said today that the Ruskin mailman is not a terrorist and did not mean any harm with his protest.
And just hours before Hughes landed in Washington, Hughes’ friend said he called a Secret Service agent to notify him of the possibility of the gyrocopter flight.
“He’s not a suicide bomber, he’s a patriot,” said Shanahan, 65, of Apollo Beach. The whole stunt centers around Hughes’ effort to change campaign finance laws, “or the lack thereof,” according to Shanahan.
About a year ago, Shanahan said, Hughes told him of the idea to deliver letters to legislators by gyrocopter. Not long after, they were both questioned by a Secret Service official in Florida, he said. Wednesday morning, Shanahan said, Hughes called his friend and said he was in Washington, ready to take off.
Just curious, didn’t I see this same flying contraption in the 1986 movie, Howard the Duck?
UPDATE I: AP Captures VIDEO of Doug Hughes buzzing the Capital area.
How in the hell was this allowed to happen and according to reports, authorities were warned in advance that this would happen and still allowed it to occur. HUH? So it was okay, because Hughes was a LEFT-WING nut-job? ABC7 reports that the small single-man gyrocopter that flew through restricted airspace around the National Mall was undetected by NORAD.
Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Mississippi, the top minority member on the House Homeland Security Committee, told CNN he had “deep concern” about Wednesday’s incident and the fact that the Secret Service knew about the pilot.
“Obviously we should have kept a little closer tabs on him, especially within the prohibited airspace,” Thompson said.
“It shows that we still have some areas that are vulnerable and while we can have prohibited airspace it shows that certain kinds of flight patterns are still problematic, and a really bad guy could have caused significant harm if had been armed with explosives or things like that,” he said.
UPDATE II: Doug Hughes wrote on his website, The Democracy Club, As I have informed the authorities, I have no violent inclinations or intent.”
Who thinks that terrorists hell-bent on attacking the United States would say the same thing.
Some one has gone from a tingly feeling up his leg to very, very bitter …
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews loses it again as he went on a tirade for his pathetic network that no one watched, MSNBC, stop airing “Goddamn” right-wing ads. I guess Matthews only wants MSNBC to air only “Goddam” LEFT-wing ads. Matthews denouncing the troubled network for playing commercials paid for by “piggish” conservative groups. Hey Chris, you do realize how a network makes money, right … by commercial ad play? At this point MSNBC would take ad money from Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levine. MSNBC’s needs all the commercial dollars it can get to keep the lights on. But isn’r it great to see Chris Matthews lose it, makes my day.
MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts ended up under friendly fire on Tuesday when his colleague Chris Matthews launched into a tirade against his own network for airing “goddamn” ads by rightwing groups.
Matthews appeared irritable from the beginning of the segment on Robert’s afternoon show and brushed off small talk with his fellow host.
Matthews said that unlike the “piggish” elites of the Republican Party, average voters who send their children to war would not be interested in more hawkish foreign policy.
“Those people are not impressed by these goddamned ads,” Matthews said, scowling.
“I certainly wouldn’t put them on free, Tom. That’s what we should stop doing,” Matthews added in an apparent reference to the clip that had been played. “Stop running rightwing ads for free on our network.”
Hey Chris Matthews, how’s that far LEFT Obama foreign policy working with Russia, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yeman and the list goes on and on and on.
Hillary Clinton Cronies Could Care Less About the First Amendment … HRC Super Volunteers Look to Curb Free Speech When it Comes to Describing Hillary
SEXISM IS THE NEW RACISM … According to Hillary Clinton supporters, sexism now means using such words as ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident, secretive, will do anything to win, represents the past, and out of touch.
The HRC Super Volunteers, a group of true believers Hillary Clinton supporters have sent out an email to journalists warning them of words they cannot use to describe Hillary. The “super volunteers,” who claim they are not connected to Clinton’s political operation, have warned that such words like ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident and secretive’ to describe Hillary Clinton are deemed sexist. HUH? So much for Freedom of Speech when it comes to Hillary Clinton. We already know that she rates about a zero when it comes to being transparent and trust-worthy as seen by her past scandals and her private email server that we now know has been scrubbed clean. Oh wait, is that sexist? , Hypocrisy alert, but of course its perfectly fine for Hillary to use such words.
Journalists, you have been warned: The HRC Super Volunteers know what you said about Hillary Clinton. And if they don’t like it, they’re going to call you out.
The group, a collection of Clinton die-hards, have launched a campaign to combat media sexism as the former Secretary of State contemplates a 2016 presidential bid.
“Super volunteers, help us find journalists smearing Hillary. We must push back against their sexism,” the group said Friday on Twitter.
The volunteers are not connected to Clinton’s political operation. “We’re not at all attached to the campaign, not at all,” John West, one of the group’s founders, told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. “All we are is a Facebook group of Democrats. We met in 2007 and stayed connected afterwards.”
They’re already putting some journalists covering Clinton on notice — and the list of words they deem off-limits is extensive.
“A group called HRC Super Volunteers just warned me ‘We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism,’” tweeted Amy Chozick, a reporter for the New York Times, on Wednesday. “Sexist words, they say, include ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident’…Also sexist, according to HRC Super Volunteers: ‘Secretive’ and ‘will do anything to win, represents the past, out of touch…’”
The email, according to Chozick, warned, “You are on notice that we will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism.”
Hillary Clinton uses words to 2007 about Secret Email Accounts that no one is allowed to use now to describe her.
So basically, any word that appropriately describes Hillary Clinton for what she truly is, acts and believes is off limits. GOOD GRIEF. For the past 6+ years under Obama anything anyone has said against his disastrous and ridiculous policies and agenda, they have been branded racist. Now the same will hold true and you will be called sexist. Enough is enough. The government is supposed to be of, by and for the People … not one to protect scurrilous people who should be forbidden from running because of past bad acts.
REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.
Full poll results can be read HERE.
40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
Texas Republican Louis Gohmert Announces He Will Challenge to John Boehner for Speaker of the House in New Congress
FINALLY, A REPUBLICAN US REPRESENTATIVE WITH A CLUE THAT THE GOP VOTERS WANT NEW LEADERSHIP …
This morning on FOX News, Fox and Friends Weekend, US Representative Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) announced that he will be challenging John Boehner (R-Ohio) for the Speaker of the House in the new Congress. Gohmert said, if he is elected Speaker, he would “fight amnesty tooth and nail. We’ll use the powers of the purse. We’ll have better oversight. We’ll fight to defund ObamaCare.” Unless the Republican party wants to lose its base forever, newly elected and establishment GOP representatives best vote in a new Speaker of the House. A recent poll conducted by Caddell Associates and commissioned by the People’s Poll indicated that 60% of GOP voters want Boehner replaced as Speaker. Voters are tired of the status quo and gutless GOP establishment candidates. The GOP was not given control of the US Senate and a wider margin of control in the House so that establishment Republicans like Boehner can pass bills with Democrat votes. YOUR DAYS ARE OVER.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today regarding his decision to buck the status quo and challenge John Boehner in the race for House Speaker:
“After the November elections gave Republicans control of the Senate, voters made clear they wanted change. There have been numerous examples of problematic Republican leadership, but we were hopeful our leaders got the voters’ message. However, after our Speaker forced through the CRomnibus by passing it with Democratic votes and without time to read it, it seemed clear that we needed new leadership. There had been much discussion. But, until yesterday, no one had stepped up.
I applaud my friend Rep. Ted Yoho for putting his name forward as an alternative to the status quo. Ted is a good man for whom I could vote, but I have heard from many supporters and also friends in Congress who have urged me to put forward my name for Speaker as well to increase our chances of change. That is why I am also offering my name as a candidate for Speaker. (MORE)
Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) said Sunday that he will challenge John Boehner (R-Ohio) as Speaker in the new Congress.
“I’m putting my name out there today to be another candidate for Speaker,” Gohmert said on “Fox and Friends.”
Gohmert said that after “years of broken promises, it’s time for a change.”
Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) on Saturday announced that he would not support Boehner for Speaker.
“This is not a personal attack against Mr. Boehner, however, the people desire and deserve a choice,” Yoho said in a Facebook post. “In November, they resoundingly rejected the status quo.”
“Eventually, the goal is second, third, fourth round, we have enough people that say ‘you know what, it really is time for a change,’ ” Gohmert said Sunday. “’You deceived us when you went to Obama and Pelosi to get your votes for the cromnibus. You said you’d fight amnesty tooth an nail. You didn’t, you funded it.’ ”
Gohmert said, if elected, he would ”fight amnesty tooth and nail. We’ll use the powers of the purse. We’ll have better oversight. We’ll fight to defund ObamaCare.”
CALL YOUR GOP REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THEY VOTE FOR GOHMERT OR ANY OTHER CHALLENGER OTHER THAN BOEHNER.
IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE, BOEHNER MUST GO!!!
Police Commissioner Bratton Tells NYPD, Don’t Turn Your Backs on Mayor de Blasio at Officer Wenjian Liu’s Funeral
SHAME ON NEW YORK CITY POLICE COMMISSIONER BILL BRATTON, HE HAS BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN A SUIT BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY THE MAYORS OFFICE …
New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has warned NYPD officers not to turn their backs on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio this Sunday at the funeral of Officer Wenjian Liu. Bratton released a memo to the NYPD pretty much chastising them for their behavior at officer Rafael Ramos’ funeral. Bratton stated in the memo that a “hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance.” The memo further went on to attack the NYPD, blaming the officers involved with taking attention away from the funeral and ruining the NYPD’s reputation.
UNREAL. Bratton best watch out or the NYPD rank and file officers will be turning their backs on him next. I could not disagree with Commissioner Bratton more. It sounds like this once cop is nothing more than bureaucratic shill for Mayor de Blasio. The NYC mayor has shown no effort to mend the riff that he created between himself and the NYPD. In fact he has made it worse by reappointing Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson to another year term on Wednesday, the same judge who let individuals out of jail without bail who made terrorist threats against police officers, one of who was a gang member.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is so worried his cops will turn their backs to his boss, Mayor Bill de Blasio, at another NYPD funeral that he sent out a memo to shame them into good behavior, sources told The Post.
“A hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance,” began the four-paragraph plea, which is being read at precinct roll calls ahead of slain Officer Wenjian Liu’s Sunday service.
Bratton won’t punish officers who choose to turn their backs to de Blasio — which was done in droves at the funeral for fallen Officer Rafael Ramos — but he pleaded with the rank and file to shelve their anger.
“I issue no mandates and I make no threats of discipline,” the memo said. “But I remind you that when you don the uniform of this department, you are bound by the tradition, honor, and decency that go with it.”
Police Commissioner Bratton should most likely shut up and allow the NYPD officer to express their First Amendment rights and freedom of expression. Other than going on strike and letting the masses fend for themselves, the only way they can dispaly the lack of support for the mayor is by doing such peaceful protests. As the NYPD are turning their backs on de Blasio, who had turned his back on law enforcement long ago by with words and deeds, the NYPD also does it in solidarity with slain officers like Officer Wenjian Liu. De Blaio and Bratton would like all to forget, but make no mistake, the NYC Mayor has blood on his hands.
Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani Discusses the Murder of Two NYPD Officers … Calls for ‘Shameful’ De Blasio, Politicians to Stop the Propaganda (VIDEO)
Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend this morning to discuss the aftermath of the shooting deaths of two NYPD officers and what Mayor De Blasio should do. Giuliani stated that De Blasio should give a speech to the police department and would explain to them that maybe he was wrong about a few things and maybe he was wrong about putting too much emphasis on police misconduct. Giuliani went on to say, “the politicians with this propaganda, separating the community from the police, are doing something that’s shameful. And they have to stop doing that.”
Giuliani said that de Blasio should admit he was wrong in putting too much emphasis on police conduct, as opposed to violent crime in communities.
“The police are doing the most in these very, very poor communities,” Giuliani said. “The police officers are doing the most to save the children that are at greatest risk.”
“The politicians with this propaganda, separating the community from the police, are doing something that’s shameful. And they have to stop doing that.”
Giuliani asserted that de Blasio let protests get out of control and failed to emphasize the importance of fatherhood, education and seeking opportunities in poor communities.
“If you really want to save black lives … then you start talking about the underlying problems and how we solve it. You don’t blame it on the police,” he said.
“The police are doing the best job of saving black lives.”
