As one donor wrote, “May God turn this tragedy to a lesson in the power of the love of strangers. I stand with you Natalie and pray God’s blessing and protect on you!”
Natalie’s Cake’s & More, a bakery in Ferguson, MO has received
nearly $100,000 over $200,000 in online donations following the damage that was inflicted on the business by looters and thugs following the “no true bill” no indictment of police officer Darren Wilson. According to Natalie Dubose, who owns Natalie’s Cake’s & More, rioters damaged her shop’s windows and baking equipment overnight Monday. For some unknown reason, the powers that be in Missouri decided not to present a show of force and have the National Guard in Ferguson to protect against the obvious destruction that was going to take place. However, thanks to the kindness of many
As of the writing of this post, the account has reached $212,664. Good defeats evil!!!
A Ferguson bakery owner says she is “so humbly blessed” after receiving nearly $100,000 in online donations to repair her shop that was damaged by looters.
Natalie Dubose, who owns Natalie’s Cake’s & More at 100 S. Florissant Road in Ferguson, said rioters damaged the shop’s windows and baking equipment overnight Monday, after a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Ms. Dubose started a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to repair her shop and has received a wave of support, including from “The Middle’s” Patricia Heaton and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville.
“Thank you to actresses Patricia Heaton and Brandi Glanville for supporting me!” she wrote in an update on her page. “I must have missed thousands of other tweets, and I’m so sorry I can’t mention them all. The sweet lady who offered money from her social security check brought me to tears … Thank you to EVERYONE for the kind words, prayers, and emotional support.”
I’m overwhelmed by the amazing generosity I’m receiving. The love, attention, support, the many, many people stopping by to say hello, the offers of assistance, the letters, the anonymous donations, the lovely letters, flowers, telephone calls, media support, and the support of the people of Ferguson.
Thank you for the wonderful comments, I can’t wait to read them all.
I am truly and humbly blessed.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Shown the Door … Barack Obama Can Tolerate A Lot, Cluelessness, Incompetence & Laziness But Not Criticism
THAT WAS QUICK …
Barack Obama’s Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is out. Some say he resigned, others say it was a firing. In any event, Hagel has stepped down as Defense Secretary. Talk about a revolving door. On January 7, 2013, President Barack Obama nominated Hagel to serve as Secretary of Defense. On February 12, 2013, the Senate Armed Services Committee approved Hagel’s nomination. Now on 11/23/14, Hagel has resigned. The former Senator from Nebraska had many missteps and seemed like he was over his head from the outset. But how should that be any different from others in Obama’s inner circle, including Obama himself? However, it was Hagel’s criticism of Obama policy that ultimately led to his demise. Hagel’s comment that ISIS is “like beyond anything we have ever seen” might have been the truth, but as we have seen on so many other occasions with the Obama presidency, there is no place for the truth with this administration.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s exit from the Obama administration came after weeks of discussion with President Obama over what role he would play in shaping defense policy over the last two years of his term.
The pair ultimately came to the conclusion that another leader would be better equipped to lead the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), senior administration and Defense officials said.
While aides described the departure as a mutual decision based on shifting priorities at the Department of Defense, there are signs that tensions between Hagel and the White House contributed to the personnel change.
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Hagel’s problems were not institutional, he was over his head from the beginning. Anybody who watched his hearings knew that, he knew that. He was sort of a non-presence for the first year or so. The irony is that he got tossed in the end and thrown under the bus because he actually sort of spoke up, spoke out and spoke the truth on the fact that the Syrian policy was entirely incoherent. He went against the White House and Susan Rice and the NSC, who were trying to manage his department and manage the Department of Defense over his head. And when he said the truth, he criticized the administration. Obama can tolerate a lot — cluelessness, incompetence, laziness — but not criticism; he had to go.
Emperor Obama Shreds the US Constitution with Immigration Amnesty Executive Order … Obama Rewards the Breaking of the Rule of Law
Barack Obama: If you like your illegal immigrant, you can keep your illegal immigrant …
So this is the way that Barack Obama starts on his promise of wanting to work with the GOP following the Democrat midterm election butt kicking? Tonight, Barack Obama went there and played with matches. Obama started his speech by saying, “Today our immigration system is broken and everybody knows it.” Obama should know it is broken, he helped break it by not enforcing current laws on the books. Tonight, Obama tried to play the emotion and guilt card on Americans saying, let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans.” One usually does use emotion when they can’t stand on the law. Actually, Americans are people who believe in the rule of law and the US Constitution. Obviously, Barack Obama does not.
One has to ask themselves, why now? If this was such an important issue and so vital to America and Latinos, why didn’t he do it back in 2009-2010 when Democrats had control of both the House and the Senate? Why didn’t he do it in 2012 before his reelection? Why didn’t he make this speech and put forth this executive order before the 2014 midterm elections? I think we all know the answer. Sorry to be so cynical, but this president has lost all right to be trusted. Especially when Obama has said over and over gain that he did not have the legal authority to do so. But suddenly … tonight he has the legal authority. So does that mean he had been lying all of the time in the past? Like I said previously, Obama has zero credibility.
Interestingly enough, the ABC, CBS and NBC did not cover Obama’s speech.
Full transcript can be read HERE.
OBAMA: First, we’ll build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings and speed the return of those who do cross over.
Second, I’ll make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders proposed.
Third, we’ll take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already had live in our country.
I want to say more about this third issue, because it generates the most passion and controversy. Even as we are a nation of immigrants, we’re also a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous.
That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids. We’ll prioritize, just like law e enforcement does every day.
But even as we focus on deporting criminals, the fact is millions of immigrants in every state, of every race and nationality still live here illegally.
And let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans.
It wasn’t too long ago when Obama said he wasn’t the Emperor of the United States and his job was to execute laws that are passed.
Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC on Barack Obama’s Immigration Plan (VIDEO) … “I Haven’t Found a Single Elected Democrat in Washington” that Can Legally Justify It
HMM … EVEN LAWRENCE O’DONNELL OF
MSLSD MSNBS MSNBC HAS ISSUES WITH WHAT BARACK OBAMA INTENDS TO DO AND QUESTIONS ITS LEGALITY …
This does not happen very often, a host at MSNBC has a lucid moment. Although he bypassed many parts of Barack Obama’s intended immigration changes, even though they are Unconstitutional, Lawrence O’Donnell questioned his panel to give him the legal justification. O’Donnell states, I have not found a single elected Democrat in Washington that could give me the legal justification that allows Obama to do this. You know it is mad when even MSNBC questions a Democrat president.
Democrat Senate Votes Down XL Keystone Pipeline And Thousands of American Jobs … Sen. Landrieu (D-LA) “Fail Mary” Falls Incomplete
The Harry Reid, Democrat lead Senate has shot down the vote for the passage of Bill (S.2280 ), a bill to approve the XL Keystone pipeline, 59-41. All the begging to save her Louisiana Senate seat was for naught as Se. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) failed in her efforts to get the Democrat support for the passage of the bill. It fell one vote short. All of the 41 “nay”votes against passage were Democrats or so-called Independents who caucus with Democrats. This was a political vote in a cynical attempt to help Landrieu, where Democrats had no intention of having this bill pass. The bill had been blocked by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for coming up for a vote for years.
The U.S. Senate on Tuesday narrowly failed to pass a bill that would have approved construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, rejecting a measure the House of Representatives approved last week.
The vote count was 59-41 in favor, but 60 “ayes” would have been needed to assure passage. Fourteen Democrats voted for the bill, joining all 45 Republicans who voted to support the pipeline.
Look for the GOP to bring this bill up again in the new year when they have control of the Senate following the 2014 midterm shellacking. Republicans are not done yet with this, but Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu is. It hardly makes her look influential as she could not get her party to pass the legislation. This all but seals her fate in her upcoming Louisiana Senate runoff election against Bill Cassidy. Her poll numbers were already bad, now this is a green light for voters to elect a Republican to get this passed in the newly elected US. Senate. Republican leadership have guaranteeing her opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy, a seat on the energy committee. The House GOP also had him sponsor their own Keystone authorization bill, which was easily approved Friday on a 252-161 vote.
The Senate blocked a measure Tuesday that would have authorized construction of the Keystone XL pipeline as Democrats chose their pro-environment base over an old friend — embattled Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu.
The vote could just be a speedbump for the Keystone project, with Republicans ready to try again — with much better odds of success — once they take control of the Senate in January.
“This will be an early item on the agenda in the next Congress,” incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said after Tuesday night’s vote.
Barack Obama Wrote in his 2006 Autobiography, ‘The Audacity of Hope’ … An Influx of Illegal Immigrants Will harm “the Wages of Blue-Collar Americans” & “Put Strains on an Already Overburdened Safety Net.”
THE AUDACITY OF HIS OWN WORDS: BARACK OBAMA OWN WORDS REGARDING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND THE DAMAGE IT WILL CAUSE AMERICANS …
The below statements are not from Conservative or GOP critics of Barack Obama’s amnesty plan. They are not of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham or anyone at Fox News. They are in fact the words of Sen. Barack Obama in 2006 when he was running for president and penned his autobiography, ‘The Audacity of Hope’. Obama admits that such a large influx of low-skilled workers would threaten to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net. That was then and this is now, what changed? Obama wants to sign an executive order that would allow this to happen. So does Obama not care about black people? Blacks already have an more than double the rate of white unemployment rate. Does he not care about blue collar workers?
I wrote what, its so hard to keep the lies straight?
“There’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border—a sense that what’s happening now is fundamentally different from what has gone on before,” then-Senator Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”
“Not all these fears are irrational.”
“The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” Obama noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”
Hey Hispanic voters, La Raza and the rest, did you read this … Obama also reveals that he personally feels “patriotic resentment” when he sees Mexican flags at immigration rallies. Hmm, is Barack Obama a racist?
“And if I’m honest with myself, I must admit that I’m not entirely immune to such nativist sentiments,” Obama wrote. “When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
FOX NEWS Reports that Barack Obama to Announce 10-Point Amnesty Immigration Plan via Exectutive Action Early Next week
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO DO …
President Barack Obama and Democrats got their Donkey “asses” handed to them in the 2014 midterm elections as a complete and total repudiation of his policies and agenda. So what does Obama do, doubles down on those same reviled policies as would Saul Alinsky. Fox News is reporting that Barack Obama is going to go ahead and poison the well when he returns to Washington, DC by passing an Executive Order declaring amnesty to millions of illegals. Of course he is, because this is what some one does who just wants to cause chaos and dismantle a country. Obama has two years left to destroy America and he could care less whether he does it legally or not. Obama is a lawless president.
Remember when Obama, while pandering to Laraza, said he would like to go it alone, but he could not because that is not is how our sytem works, that is not how our Democracy works, that is not how our Constitution was written. Hmm, what changed other than the fact that this president is looking to reek as much havoc as he can, even though he knows he has no authority to do so. He just does not care.
Video Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit
President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.
The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.
Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox News has learned.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters traveling with Obama in Burma Thursday that the president had not made a final decision on any executive actions concerning immigration and would not announce any until he returned to Washington.
The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children — but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.
The latter could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.

Gun Sales Spike in Ferguson, MO Ahead of the Grand Jury Decision on the Shooting Death of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson
There are tense times ahead of the grand juries decision in Ferguson, Missouri with regards to the shooting death of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, as gun sales spike. Will Officer Wilson be cleared or indicted? And if indicted, for what? The longer this goes on, the more tense things get. Those who are pro-Michael Brown claim they want justice; however, it sound more like revenge. The result is many uneasy citizens in Ferguson and the surrounding areas buying up guns for their protection.
Lately, Dan McMullen has been bringing an extra gun to his office in Ferguson, Missouri.
McMullen runs Solo Insurance on West Florissant close to where looting and vandalism briefly broke out in early August after a police officer shot to death teenager Michael Brown.
“I bring an extra gun now only because it has a bigger magazine,” McMullen says. He began carrying it after tensions increased in the area following the shooting. He says he would never use it to protect his business, but he would use it to save his life.
More … Steven King, the owner of Metro Shooting Supplies in Bridgeton, Missouri, says sales have recently “skyrocketed” again because of the fear of the unknown ahead of the grand jury decision. People saw what the protesters were capable of and now want to protect themselves from the protesters, looters and vandals.
“You’re exactly right. In August gun sales went up exponentially. Not only at our store but around the entire St. Louis metropolitan area. It’s kind of tapered off over the last couple of months. And, now in the last week or so, sales have started to skyrocket once again… We have a wide variety of people who are buying right now. We have first time buyers. We have elderly people, white, black, Asian. We’ve got women. We’ve got men. We’ve got head of households. But, primarily we got people, 100% of the people this weekend who have bought a firearm have bought it because of some sort of fear of the unknown.”
