WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR?
The New York Post is reporting that newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign. Well doesn’t this look like an Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson race baiting shakedown? They would be proud. Hell, the mob would be proud. Then again, is Obama anything any different? This president has done more to harm race relations in this country. Imagine that, seeing that most misguided individuals voted for him to do just the opposite. SHAMEFUL, SIMPLY SHAMEFUL.
Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation.
So far, Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has reached more than $220 million in settlements with several auto lenders since the agency launched its anti-discrimination crusade against the industry in 2013. Several other banks are under active investigation.
That’s despite the fact that the CFPB had no actual complaints of racial discrimination — it was all just based on half-baked statistics.
A confidential 23-page internal report detailing CFPB’s strategy for going after lenders shows why these companies are forking over millions of dollars in restitution and fines to the government despite denying any wrongdoing.
The high-level memo, sent by top CFPB civil-rights prosecutors to the bureau’s director and revealed by a House committee, admits their methods for proving discrimination were seriously flawed from the start and had little chance of holding up in court. Yet they figured they could muscle Ally, as well as future defendants, with threats and intimidation.
Let’s hope that America can survive the damage that has been inflicted upon it and its people during this terrible Obama presidency.

THE REAL QUESTION IS WHEN WILL AL SHARPTON’S LAST SHOW BE, PERIOD!
The Politico is reporting that Al Sharpton and his unwatchable show, ‘PoliticsNation,’ will be moved from its daily spot to Sunday morning. Sharpton stated in an interview, “I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.” Note to Reverend Al, you are neither, you are a race baiter and race profiteer.
MSNBC should have admitted their mistake and just dumped Al altogether. Sorry, but is his is not watchable. Now his new show will be shown at Sunday morning at 8, because that is a big time viewership time slot.
Al Sharpton is leaving MSNBC’s weekday dayside lineup, and moving to Sunday mornings.
Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.
“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”
This means that Sharpton will only air for one hour a week, rather that been seen 5 times a week on a daily basis. I guess for that we should say thank you to BSNBC. This is all a part of the shakeup at MSNBC in an attempt to get ratings that actually can be measured.
Kid Rock Tells People that are Protesting Him & Al Sharpton’s Action Network Demanding He Denounce the Confederate Flag to “Kiss His Ass”!!!
LAST TIME A CHECKED THIS WAS STILL AMERICA, KID ROCK IS CORRECT, THEY CAN KISS HIS ASS …
We have now reached critical mass insanity when a flag becomes more important and to blame for all the ills of racism and what has happened to blacks in this country, than the individual and vile acts of people and the liberal laws and policies that have caused blacks to be forever dependent on the government. Personally, I could care less about the Confederate battle flag, I am from the North. That being said, what is up with the bullying over demanding that private citizens of the United States be forced to do something, or else?
Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has publicly called on Kid Rock to denounce the Confederate flag and stop using it during his performances, claiming the flag is a racist symbol. Kid Rock responded to the group’s request in a statement that Fox News host Megyn Kelly read on the air Wednesday night, well read most of. Kid Rock said … “Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my ass”.
Good for Kid Rock, some one has to stand up to these race-bating bullies. The Detroit chapter of National Action Network (NAN), the NYC based group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, also sent a letter requesting a meeting with Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, which is sponsoring Rock’s summer tour. So if Kid Rock wont kneel down to these fools, they are going to look to extort and harass his sponsors. How unlike Al Sharpton. All these clowns got is some cutely phrased words calling Kid Rock, a home town Detroit hero who is a hero with the Confederate flag. Really? Just curious, when was the last time Kid Rock even used a Confederate flag in concert? Does it even matter to these people?
The Rev. Charles Williams II, who heads the Detroit activist group, insisted that GM withdraw its support from Rock, saying the flag represents racism and hatred.
Rock told the Free Press in 2002 that he used the flag during that year’s tour as a nod to Southern rock and a rebel spirit. It’s unclear how recently Rock has displayed Confederate flag imagery in concert, but some fans have told the Free Press it has not appeared onstage in several years, including Rock’s current tour.
UPDATE I: A note to these idiots who would go after a flag because its easy to deflect attention away from their own failings to their people and the liberal politics that has devastated and destroyed the city of Detroit over the years. To show you how misguided and how absurd all of this is, in 2011 Kid Rock received the organization’s Great Expectations Award, honoring him for his advocacy of Detroit city. He did so by attending with his teenage son Robert Ritchie Jr., who is black, the 56th Annual NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner at Cobo Hall on May 1, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan. Note to all, it was the NAACP who gave Kid Rock this award and guess what, he was using the Stars and Bars back then as well.
UPDATE II: Don’t forget that Kid Rock played in Washington, DC celebrating the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009. No one seemed to care of his use of of the Confederate flag back then. However, since then Kid Rock has basically called Obama a disappointment and a failure as the country has never been more divided. Hey Kid, that is what community agitators do.
City of New York Orders Al Sharpton’s Daughter (Dominique Sharpton) to Save Incriminating Hiking Pics & Not to Delete Instagram Bali Hiking Photos
RUT-ROH, Some one is in trouble …
As reported at the NY Post, NYC attorney have warned Dominique Sharpton, the daughter of Rev. Al Sharpton, not to destroy or delete any pics on her Instagram account, like the ones that show her hiking in Bali. The 28 year old Sharpton is suing NYC for $5 million claiming she fell in the street and sprained her ankle that supposedly left her “severely injured, bruised and wounded”. Dominique’s lawsuit states she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries;” however, she stupidly posted hiking pics on her Instagram account showing her hiking in atop an Indonesian mountain and making comments regarding how tough the hikes were. CAN YOU SAY BUSTED!!!
City lawyers warned Dominique Sharpton not to delete Instagram photos like this one atop an Indonesian mountain — where she trekked while claiming in a lawsuit that she has “permanent” injuries.
The city Law Department sent Rev. Al’s daughter a letter telling her to preserve all of the damning evidence that she posted on her social-media accounts.
The warning comes after The Post revealed that Dominique Sharpton has been globe-trotting despite her May 7 suit that says she will never fully recover from a sprained ankle she suffered on an uneven Soho street.
CAN YOU SAY FRAUD!!!
Al Sharpton’s Daughter Dominique Has Even More Pics on Instagram Hiking on a Permanently Injured Ankle
DOLT OF THE WEEK …
In the end, 28 year old Dominique Sharpton should only get $5 for her lawsuit against New York City claiming injury due to falling on uneven pavement. It would appear that Al Sharpton’s daughter has much to learn from the master in the art of the shake down. Even more pics have surfaces on Dominique’s Instagram account of her hiking. But, according to her lawsuit, she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.” Those injuries do not seem to stop her from hiking in Bali either.
Personally there should be no nuisance settlement in this case. If NYC wanted to make a point and put an end to this, the City should counter sue for fraud.
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s island-hopping, mountain-hiking daughter — who is suing the city for $5?million after purportedly injuring her ankle on a Soho sidewalk — posted more damning Instagram pics Monday of her frolicking in Indonesia as legal experts said her social-media activity could cost her big bucks.
“#Balidays on the Gilis!!!’’ Dominique Sharpton, 28, wrote with two snapshots of herself at what looked like a posh Gili Island retreat.
The new entries came the same day The Post revealed others in which the supposedly hobbled Dominique boasted of climbing a mountain there.
Since allegedly spraining her ankle in October, she has also been pictured in high heels at a hippie party and climbing the dicey terrain of Red Rock Canyon in Nevada.
The photos kill even the slightest chance Dominique had of collecting big bucks from the city, legal experts said, even as the de?Blasio administration has been shelling out more money than ever to settle lawsuits.
Dominique Sharpton, Al Sharpton’s Daughter Sues New York City for $5M after Spraining Ankle (Update: Pics of Dominique Sharpton Hiking Mountains)
The apple does not fall far from the shake down tree in the Sharpton family … or is it by Shaking the Apple tree, trying to take a bite out of the Big Apple?
28 year old Dominique Sharpton, the daughter of Rev. Al Sharpton is suing the city of New York for $5 million. Dominique Sharpton is claiming she fell in the street, sprained her ankle and severely injured and bruised her ankle because of uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown. Good grief. It would appear that Dominique has learned from the master of shakedown. According to her lawsuit, she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.” Dominique Sharpton claims she fell in a crosswalk, which would make hers a “defective roadway” claim. However, in December Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach. And even with the claims of “permanent physical pain, there are pics on social-media of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree. Yup, she has learned well from the Shakedown master.
My Monkey senses make me say the following …
Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers after she fell in the street and sprained her ankle, court records show.
Dominique Sharpton, 28, says she was “severely injured, bruised and wounded” when she stumbled over uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown last year, according to a lawsuit.
Currently on vacation in Bali, the membership director for her gadfly dad’s National Action Network claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” according to the suit filed against the city departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.
“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in a post to Instagram after the Oct. 2 fall.
She was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the tumble, but by December, Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC, and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach.
And despite claiming “permanent physical pain” in a breathless notice of claim, there are social-media shots of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree.
Hmm, isn’t that called fraud if you claim one thing and it is a knowing false claim?
From Weasel Zippers comes the screen shot of Sharpton’s daughter, who is currently of vacation in Bali hiking up mountains. How many Americans in this terrible economy can afford to take a vacation to Bali? Oh but wait, I thought she claimed permanent physical pain? So sharpton’s daughter is looking to ceat the NYC tax payers out of money with a trunped up claim that she injured herself as she
Oh wait, here is another picture from Dominique Sharpton’s Instagram site showing her hiking in Red Rock canyon about a month ago. Because everyone knows that some one with a severe and permanent damage to their ankle can hike there. Of course I guess it is just a coincidence that her daddy Sharpton owes $4.5 million in back taxes.
NYC should sue her for fraud.
It not only adds up to no case, it amounts to fraud.
Dominique Sharpton posted pictures to Instagram showing she completed a difficult mountain climb in Bali, Indonesia — even though her suit says that “she still suffers” debilitating pain after twisting her ankle in a street crack in Soho last year.
She didn’t seem to realize that her mountaineering exploits might undermine her legal claims as she bragged online about the difficulty of her ascent.
What legal experts saw as truly unreal, however, is the younger Sharpton’s brazen boasting after she claimed in court papers that she was in “permanent physical pain.”
“It is starting to look like Tawana Brawley is orchestrating the Sharpton trial strategy,” quipped CNN legal analyst Paul Callan. “It graphically demonstrates bad judgment and good feet. It all adds up to no case.”
Fox News Reporter Leland Vittert Confronts Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as Al Sharpton Prevents Freedom of Speech
I KNOW HE WORKS FOR MSNBC, BUT ISN’T AL SHARPTON A MEMBER OF THE MEDIA … WHAT’S UP WITH THIS PREVENTING THE MEDIA FROM TALKING TO A PUBLIC OFFICIAL?
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake owes everyone an explanation as to her disastrous handling of the Baltimore riots. However, AL Sharpton does not seem to think so. Instead, he is protecting her backside. Talk about hypocrisy and double standard. Watch the video below and see Al Sharpton, a member of the MSM who receives a paycheck from MSNBC, actually prevents a member of the media from asking questions of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. the so-called Reverand Al Sharpton is running cover and playing body guard to embattled Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. HUH? Fox News reporter Leland Vittert is shoved out of the way as he tried to do what the media’s job is to do and that bis ask public officials questions and hold them accountable to the people. The Fox News reporter tried to get clarification from the Baltimore Mayor as to whether she gave the police the order to stand down and “Let Them Loot, It’s Only Property”.
Make up your mind Al, either you are a civil rights activist or a member of the media, you can’t be both. As for MSNBC, there should be no question, he should be let go immediately as t is obvious that Sharpton has no objectivity and does not even pretend to.
Who thinks Al Sharpton would be treating a white Mayor this way of a city where a black man was killed in police custody?
Fox News reporter Leland Vittert was shoved out of the way when he confronted Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as she was walking with Al Sharpton on Thursday.
The reporter received no answers to his questions about the report or riots.
“We can’t we ask questions?” Vittert asked. “We can’t ask questions of a public official?”
As Rawlings-Blake walked silently, Sharpton is seen on video telling Vittert that he will “have the opportunity” to ask questions at an upcoming press conference.
Vittert is later literally shoved out of the way and the tense confrontation ended shortly after.
According to the Daily News, Charlatan Al Sharpton ‘Circus’ Not Welcome by Family of Murdered Walter Scott Family
The Daily News is reporting that the family of slain Walter Scott does not want any part of the Al Sharpton 3-ring circus and he is not welcome. Imagine that, the family of 50 year old Walter Scott, a black man who was shot in the back by a white police officer after a traffic stop does not want any part of Al Sharpton and his traveling race-baiting show to exploit his death. That was the message from the family of South Carolina police shooting victim Walter Scott to the civil rights
activist charlatan Thursday, two days before the funeral for the slain father of four. The family did not want Walter Scott’s death turn into the circus that followed the death of Michael Brown in Missouri. Hopefully, they will not fall to pressure and keep that same request. 33 year old police officer, now former officer as he has been fired, Michael T. Slager, has been charged with murder.
Who, me use tragedy for my own gain?
Hoping to avoid a Ferguson, Mo.-style “circus,” the family of alleged police shooting victim Walter Scott doesn’t want the Rev. Al Sharpton to attend the funeral, according to the Daily News.
“We don’t want another Ferguson type of circus here,” a source close to the Scott family in South Carolina was quoted as saying in the Daily News.
The family reportedly was referring to Rev. Sharpton’s speech at the funeral for Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson. That officer wasn’t charged in the incident, sparking numerous protests.
Of course, Al Sharpton has to make the death of Walter Scott about him and has refuted the claim that he was not welcome.
The Rev. Al Sharpton has refuted a Daily News report that says the family of shooting victim Walter Scott does not want him to attend his funeral in South Carolina.
The family reportedly was referring to Rev. Sharpton’s speech at the funeral for Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The officer wasn’t charged in the incident, sparking numerous protests.
Patrolman Michael Thomas Slager has been charged in connection with the death of Scott, who was shot while allegedly fleeing from a traffic stop in North Charleston, S.C., on Saturday.
“Today’s Daily News story is bogus and has no merit,” Rev. Sharpton said in release Friday, adding that he has been invited to preach and help local clergy lead a healing prayer vigil on Sunday in North Charleston.
“There has never been a discussion about me attending or participating in the funeral on Saturday, since everyone knows that NAN’s convention with thousands of delegates is happening in New York and doesn’t end until Saturday night,” Rev. Sharpton said of the conference at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in Manhattan.
“I have not decided whether or not I will accept the invitation to preach in North Charleston and participate in the prayer vigil on Sunday,” Rev. Sharpton said. “However, I am told the mayor and police chief have said that if I do choose to come they will attend the service as we seek healing and justice in these matters.”
HATE CRIME: 43 Year Old White Man Assaulted on MetroLink Train in ST. Louis, MO by Black Man Over Michael Brown Question … No It was Over Black Hate
JUST CURIOUS … DO WHITE METROLINK PASSENGER LIVES MATTER … HANDS UP, DON’T PUNCH.
A 43 year old white man, minding his own business on his commute home on a MetroLink train in ST. Louis, MO was attacked by a black man who the media would like you to believe was started because of the black man asking a Micahel Browm question. Sorry, that is the excuse. What caused this unprovoked assault of a white passenger was because of black hate. The death of Michael Brown and the made up and bogus “Hands up, don’t shoot” is just an excuse to attack and assault white people. At this point we know that Hands up, don’t shoot is a lie and never happened. But what did happen on a MetroLink train was the as assault of a white man. Where is Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Barack Obama running to his aid? Will Eric Holder press hate crime charges against these punks, I didn’t think so.
If it were three white kids beating up on a black guy the MSM would have made it a front page story and a national event. But its just a white guy minding his business, trying to get home from work. That that gets no play as a bunch of thugs hassle the guy, because they can.
The victim, 43, was commuting home when a young man in a red T-shirt and cap walked up to him. The victim asked not to be named in media reports.
The man asked to use the victim’s cell phone. He declined, and the young man sat down beside him.
“Then he asked me my opinion on the Michael Brown thing,” the victim told KMOV, “and I responded I was too tired to think about it right now.”
The suspect, in his 20s, stood up.
“The next thing I know, he sucker punches me right in the middle of my face,” the victim said. The video showed the suspect unleashing a barrage of punches at the head of the victim, who covered himself with his hand and forearms.
The two other men, also in their 20s, joined in, police said. As the train pulled into a station, a security guard saw part of the beating and alerted police.
The man in the red T-shirt could be seen on video kicking at the victim’s face before the train’s doors opened and the assailants ran out.
EXIT QUESTION: Hey Eric Holder, is the police department responsible for this as well? Is it those racist police that are to blame, or the racist blacks?
ARE YOU HAPPY BARACK OBAMA, ERIC HOLDER, AL SHARPTON AND THE MSM? YOU FINALLY GAVE THE MOB WHAT THEY WANTED … BLOOD.
Two police officers have been shot in Ferguson, Missouri just after midnight last night as police were confronting protesters who had gathered outside the police station. One St. Louis county police officer, who is 41 and has been on the force for 14 years, was hit in the shoulder. The other police officer, a Webster Groves officer, who is 32 and has been on the force seven years, was shot in the face. The injuries of both officers are being described as “very serious gunshot injuries,” but are not considered to be life threatening.
The open season on police officers in Ferguson, MO takes place following the over the top, scathing Justice Department report alleging bias in the police department and court and the resignation of Ferguson police chief Tom Jackson. However, this is what happens when you pander to the mob. This is what happens when Attorney General vows to dismantle the Ferguson police department and at the same time he and Barack Obama fail to mention that “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot” was based on a complete and total lie.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOVERNMENT FANS THE FLAMES OF RACISM. ERIC HOLDER INCITED THIS BY HIS ACTIONS, RATHER THAN ACTING LIKE AN ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.
Two police officers were hit by gunfire early Thursday outside the Ferguson police department.
The shots were fired just after midnight as police were confronting protesters who had gathered outside the police station.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said one officer was with his department and the other was with the Webster Groves department. Both were being treated at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where Belmar spoke, and were in serious condition.
The chief said at least three shots were fired. He described the injuries of both men as “very serious gunshot injuries.” Neither injury was considered life-threatening.
One officer told KMOV-TV that the shooting was an “ambush.”
The shots were fired shortly after midnight as protesters were gathered following the resignation of embattled Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson on Wednesday.
Before the shooting, some at the protest were chanting to show they weren’t satisfied with the resignations of Jackson and City Manager John Shaw earlier in the week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Authorities from multiple agencies had gathered outside of the department.
The protest was a familiar scene in Ferguson, which saw similar and much larger demonstrations after the shooting death of Michael Brown last summer by officer Darren Wilson. When Wilson was cleared in November by a state grand jury, the decision set off further protests, looting and fires.
Wednesday was the first time an officer at a protest had been shot.
