Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”
I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.
It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”
Hmm, who is spewing the hate?
Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.
Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”
Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.
C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!
Michael and Tina Careccia Missng Since in 6/22/15 in Maricopa, AZ (Update: Authorities Find Missing Couple’s Honda)
44 year old Michael Careccia and 42 year old Tina Careccia have been missing since Monday, June 22, 2015 in Maricopa, Arizonia. Family members say the couple left the home around 5 AM on Monday; however, Tina Careccia never arrived at her job at a Chandler construction company. According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, Michael and Tina Careccia were reported missing by Michael’s child on Monday at approximately 7 PM. Later on Monday, sheriff’s deputies found the Honda at 10 PM near Ralson and Papago roads, not far from the Careccias’ home.
Luke said he made the call to 911 at about 7:15 p.m. Monday night to report his dad and stepmother as missing. The couple left the house at about 5 a.m. in their 2008 Honda Accord and didn’t show up for any of their appointments.
About three hours later, sheriff’s deputies found the Honda near Ralson and Papago roads, not far from the Careccias’ home, but detectives said there was no sign of where the couple went from there.
Investigators said Michael is a 44-year-old White man with black hair and brown eyes, who is 5-feet 10-inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. Tina is a 42-year-old White woman with blonde hair and brown eyes who is 5-feet 8-inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds.

Volunteer search teams have spent several days looking for the couple in a remote area outside Maricopa.
“The response was amazing. We really didn’t know what to expect coming into this. We kind of threw it all together, reached out here and to get over 100 people to come out and search is absolutely amazing,” Alexis Kroll, one of the search organizers, said.
“It’s just been amazing,” said another family friend, Francesca Lever. ” Last night we had over 150 people come out and just join the search; we expect the same amount today.”
Family, friends and even complete strangers have canvassed the area in jeeps, quads, dirt bikes and trucks.
“We are kind of focusing more on the canals and the remote areas that really we had a hard time with the lighting last night,” Kroll said.
Some volunteers, like Larry Meyer, don’t even know the couple. “If you have the ability you go out and you look for people. You do whatever it takes to help your neighbor out ,” he said. “Just trying to help. I know there are a lot of other people out doing the same thing so we’re just trying to bring these people home safe.”
Investigators asked anyone with information to contact sheriff’s detectives at 520-866-5111.
Daily Commentary – Thursday, June 25, 2015 – Was the Mass Shooting in South Carolina a Tragedy or an Execution?
- It was more like an execution and the shooter should be executed himself. I’m not sure how removing the confederate flag will make it better though
New York Prison Guard Gene Palmer Arrested for Providing Tools to Escaped Prisoners Richard Matt & David Sweat
57 year old prison guard Gene Palmer has been arrested in connection with the prison escape of convicted murderers Richard Matt and David Sweat from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York. Palmer was charged Wednesday with promoting prison contraband in the first degree, two counts of tampering with physical evidence, and one count of official misconduct. According to court documents, Gene Palmer is accused of accepted paintings from the two convicts in return for tools. Palmer is said to have destroyed the paintings following the prison escape. Palmer attorney stated that his client “did not know that Joyce Mitchell had conned him into giving contraband to these two individuals.” Palmer worked at the prison for 27 years. Bail was set at 50,000 bond or $25,000 cash bail.
NBC News – New York Prison Guard Gene Palmer Arrested.
A guard at the New York prison where two convicted killers escaped earlier this month accepted paintings from them in return for tools, according to court documents.
Gene Palmer is alleged to have later destroyed the paintings — burning some of them in a fire pit at his home and burying others in woods nearby — after Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora on June 6.
Palmer was charged Wednesday with promoting prison contraband in the first degree (a class D felony), two counts of tampering with physical evidence (a class E felony) and one count of official misconduct (a class A misdemeanor). The charges carry prison terms ranging from 15 months to seven years.
The documents allege that Palmer provided a flat-head screwdriver and needle-nose pliers on “at least four separate occasions” beginning as early as November 2014. According to the complaint, this was a result of Palmer receiving paintings from the Matt and Sweat.

If you’ve got a plastic pink flamingo on your lawn, give it a pat on the back. The man who designed the lawn art, Donald Featherstone, has died. He was 79.
His wife, Nancy, tells The Associated Press that Featherstone died Monday and that he had battled Lewy body dementia.
A trained sculptor with a background in classical art, Featherstone created the now-ubiquitous pink flamingo in 1957, based on a photo he saw in National Geographic. The flamingo ornament was one of hundreds of items he made for the Union Products plastics company in Leominster, Mass. The AP reports that Featherstone spent 43 years with the company, “rising to the position of president before his retirement in 1999.”
Mr. Featherstone created the pink flamingo in 1957 after graduating from art school at the Worcester Art Museum. He worked at Union Products in Leominster, and the pink flamingo was one of 750 items he created for the company.
In 1996 Mr. Featherstone was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize in art. The prize is a parody of the Nobel Prizes and given to honor unusual or trivial achievements in scientific research. That year he also was appointed president of Union Products, a post he held until 2000.
eBay to Ban Sale of Confederate Flag Merchandise … Really, They Missed A Lot and They Seemed to Have Forgot to Remove the 2008 Hillary Clinton Campaign Buttons
This is what the slippery slope of censorship looks like … Its one thing for a State not to fly it at the Capitol, but now comes the purge of all things with the Confederate flag.
The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and the Confederate Flag …
It would appear that eBay has jumped on the band wagon to ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise. According to eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff, “We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” REALLY? Because as of this morning, a simple search on eBay of “Confederate flag” brought up over 10 pages, 50 items on each page, of Confederate flag merchandise. So what is next, pretending like Civil War never took place and the scrubbing of Southern history?
I personally think slavery was one of our darkest hours in the United States and this existence of racism and bigotry is reprehensible; however, I find the exploitation of a heinous crime disgusting as well. This country has made great strides from the days of slavery, more so than many other countries where it continues today. I am not a fan of the Confederate flag, I am not from the South, I am more of a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag fan. But how long will it be before that symbol offends people? Hell, we have people in this country that are offended by the American flag, Old Glory.
How About this One?
Even Hillary Clinton chimed in on South Carolina’s removal of the Confederate flag from the Capitol building, but maybe Hillary would like to discuss her 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign buttons with the Confederate flag on them complete with Stars and Bars. By the way, that button is for sale on eBay. Oh, but that’s different, that was 8 years ago, what difference does it make. Right? In the video below Hillary Clinton said, “recognizing it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past, that has no place in our present or our future.” Did she feel that way when Bill Clinton signed a Law Honoring Confederacy in Arkansas Flag? Then comes Hillary’s anti-free speech comment, “It shouldn’t fly there, it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” Sorry folks, as long as people are allowed to burn the American flag as an example of free speech, flying a Confederate flag has to be allowed as well. You don’t get to allow one and not the other.
Hillary Clinton Says she appreciates the removal of Confederate Flag, but what about her campaign buttons?
eBay will ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise, the auction site announced Tuesday, in a decision that follows in the steps of major retailers like Walmart and Sears.
“We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said in an email to CNN. “This decision is consistent with our long-standing policy that prohibits items that promote or glorify hatred, violence and racial intolerance.”
Hoff added that the company continually monitors and evaluates its 800 million products on its site to ensure that they are “consistent with our core purpose.”
The company’s decision mirrors that of Walmart and Sears, which have also removed Confederate flag products from their stores.
The controversial flag has come under intense scrutiny following a racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine African-Americans dead in a historic church. On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also called on the Confederate flag to be taken down from the state’s capitol grounds.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley Calls for Removal of Confederate Flag From State Capitol in South Carolina
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley calls for the removal of Confederate flag from the State Capitol.
Following the shooting of 9 black church goers at the historic Emanuel American Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC, there has come the call to take the Confederate, Stars and Bars, flag from the South Carolina State Capitol in Columbia. Yesterday, Nikki Haley calls for removal of Confederate flag. Authorities stated that the shooting was a hate crime, and a white supremacist website that may be linked to the shooter, Dylann Roof, has images that apparently show him holding the Confederate battle flag.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state Capitol Monday, less than a week after a 21-year-old white man gunned down nine people at a historic African American church.
Support for the flag to come down from leaders around the state and around the country has been steadily growing in the wake of the devastating attack.
“Today, we are here in a moment of unity in our state, without ill will, to say it is time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley said during a news conference attended by Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, along with other state leaders.
I can understand the reason for the removal of the flag that divides individuals; however, if anyone thinks that this is the solution to stop racism, you are sorely mistaken. Love and Kindness ends racism, not the removal of a flag. If anything, the removal of the flag will probably fan the flames of the misguided and vile white supremacists. It is kind of playing into this hands and their mantra. However, the love, kindness and forgiveness shown by the families of the shooting victims in Charleston, SC will go farther to help get rid of racism and change hearts than any removal of a flag.
Rapper Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Arrested after Assaulting UCLA Strength & Conditioning Football Coach Sal Alosi
HIP-HOP HELICOPTER DAD ARRESTED …
42 year old rapper, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, was arrested Monday on the campus of UCLA and charged with assault with a deadly weapon after an altercation with a UCLA assistant football coach. Diddy’s son, Justin, is a football player with the UCLA Bruins. As reported at TMZ Sports, Diddy allegedly attacked UCLA strength and conditioning coach coach with a kettlebell weight. Diddy was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, which is a felony. Diddy was supposedly confronting the assistant coach because coach Sal Alosi was “riding Justin badly” and told him not to come back until the end of the summer. Can you say “Helicopter” dad?
According to accounts, the incident was captured on video.
P. Diddy has been arrested for allegedly getting into a fight with a football coach at UCLA … where his son is on the team, TMZ Sports has learned.
We’re told Campus Police took the music mogul into custody early Monday afternoon. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a defensive back on the team. We’re told the fight went down at the UCLA athletic facility.
One source says a strength and conditioning coach was screaming at Justin on the field during a strength and conditioning session. We’re told the coach “was riding Justin, screaming intensely at him.” Diddy watched the whole thing from the sideline.
At some point later, we’re told Diddy confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him. Diddy was arrested for assault.
“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation. This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”
