Rayciss!: “Chicago cop disciplined for playing ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ at protest”

Everything is racist to someone. Especially if it helps them get their way.

A Chicago police officer has been disciplined after he admitted playing a song some consider racially offensive during a protest against police violence last weekend, the department announced in a statement Thursday.

The action was taken after a video surfaced apparently showing a Chicago police car blasting the song “Sweet Home Alabama” by the band Lynyrd Skynyrd during the Saturday protest.

In the statement, the officer said he was playing the music as a “fan of the University of Alabama,” which was playing the University of Missouri for the SEC championship and a shot at the NCAA playoffs.

But the department said it “fully understands sensitivities related to the song and, regardless, we cannot condone any behavior that may be viewed as disruptive or disrespectful to any protester or resident.”

“CPD is dedicated to ensuring residents’ right to free speech and peaceful assembly,” it added.

The officer will be suspended for 10 days pending the approval of Superintendent Garry McCarthy, according to a source.”

“Conservatives: Let’s Primary Every GOP Boneless Wonder Who Votes For The CRomnibus”

Boy, do I agree with this. Each and every Republican who votes for this monstrosity needs to be thrown out. We may not be able to succeed in firing them but primarying them is another matter.

The bill includes funding for abortion, amnesty for illegal aliens, benefits for illegals, the war on coal, and costs more than a Trillion dollars. With our runaway national debt this is exactly the opposite of what the country needs.

omnibuscartoon121114

There’s only one way to stop Obama’s destructive policies, especially the ruinous spending that has pushed America into a national debt of over $18 trillion, and that is for Republicans to stop voting “YES” on spending bills like the “CRomnibus.”

However, the policies that are funded by the “CRomnibus” represent practically everything that conservatives who volunteered, donated and voted in the 2014 midterm election thought they had just defeated.

But what is the deepest betrayal by the House Republican leaders behind the bill is that it is not something that was forced upon a reluctant Republican majority in the House by Harry Reid and the just defeated Senate Democrats – this is a deal Republican leaders negotiated on behalf of themselves and the House Republican Conference.”

This idea came from Conservative HQ where there is a more in-depth description of the things that are bad about this bill.

Update: The bill passed the House 219-206. The roll call vote list is here. Is your Congresscritter on the list of yeas? Mine is.

White House Budget Office Preparing For Shutdown

From the hill… Hell, even Democrats are opposed to this crime-nibus bill. Granted, they are opposed because it doesn’t spend enough of China’s money, but opposed they are.

Congress is taking a series of actions today on legislation that would prevent a lapse in appropriations and allow for continued Government operations. We continue to believe that time remains for Congress to pass full-year appropriations for FY 2015, and prevent a government shutdown,” an OMB official said in a statement.

“However, out of an abundance of caution, we are working with agencies and taking steps to prepare for all contingencies, including a potential lapse in funding.”
While the White House still doesn’t believe a shutdown is likely, the call came as lawmakers looked for the votes to pass a $1.1 trillion spending bill unveiled earlier this week.

While President Obama backed the bill despite provisions that would roll back elements of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill and reduce limits on campaign contributions, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she would not be backing the legislation.

Palin To Congress: “Kill The Omnibus Spending Bill”

She’s right. We didn’t throw out the bums so they could be replaced by more bums. You in the Congress promised to stop Obama. You are now telling us that you are going to fund his madness.

Shame on you.

From her Facebook page, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin advises House members to kill the bill:

Grant me this use of America’s voice:

When you cut through all the “inside baseball” stuff in this Omnibus Spending Bill that’s in front of Congress, you’re left with two cold hard facts: this bill doesn’t defund Obama’s amnesty (so he gets to reward lawbreakers with your tax dollars) and it adds to our dangerous, unsustainable debt. It also breaks campaign promises made by quite a few of our incumbent politicians on both sides of the aisle. Hey, if you thought we wanted more of the same as we worked our butts off to get good folks elected in November, then why did we vote to oust liberals who got America into this mess in the first place? Guess what, GOP: our victory party is over and voters are wide awake and trusting you to keep your promises to America.”

A Sincere Warning To Senator Diane Feinstein

Attacking the CIA is not the smartest thing she has ever done. It appears that she believes she is somehow immune from retribution. Sitting Senators often think things like that.

Someone should caution Diane Feinstein… ‘You don’t tug on Superman’s cape,’ and you definitely DO NOT play Truth or Dare with ‘crazies’ in the C-I-A!”

If Diane Feinstein is trying to play a dangerous game of Truth or Dare with the Central Intelligence Agency, many insiders believe there can only be one winner walking away from this most recent confrontation.”

Has anyone seen this?

I admit, I miss out on a lot of things here. I might have missed out on this one. This story has been in the news for a while. A Department of Homeland Security Procurement Specialist by day acts as genocidal racist Revolutionary by night. When videos like the one that follows surfaced, he was placed on administrative leave.

Let it be no wonder that those who have engaged in acts of racially motivated mass violence since this video and many more like them have been made and broadcast to the public, do get to see dynamic speakers like this live and in person. They are everywhere. There is nothing new under the Sun with these people. I’ve been hearing this stuff for Decades. They are in a City near you right now, doing what they do. They will not be dealt with effectively by Law Enforcement.

This will not end well. The big question is the one that seems to get everybody in trouble so maybe I won’t state that question here. Again I say that I am not here to promote Fear or Hatred. I am here to promote Understanding. If you are ever forced into a physical confrontation as a result of the current and ongoing Civil Unrest it will be important for you to understand exactly what it is that you are up against so that you will be able to make the most informed decision possible when it comes to Fight or Flight. When you make your choice you must then execute the course of action with firm resolve. At the very least the life you will save will be your own.

Preparing For The Coming Civil Unrest?

Story

What the hell does “prepare for action” mean and to whom would such a message be directed?

A mixture of human and computer error caused a “Civil Emergency” alert to be sent to thousands of cell phones in Southern Kentucky Tuesday, the Kentucky Emergency Management office said.

There was never an emergency and the alert was sent out during testing at the Emergency Operations Center in Frankfort, spokesman Buddy Rogers said.

According to Rogers, during the testing on Tuesday a computer error, followed by a human error caused the alert to be sent the to people in the Corbin and London areas of Southern Kentucky.

The alert was only sent to cell phones via the Federal Communication Commission’s Wireless Emergency Alert system, Rogers said.

According to the FCC, the Wireless Emergency Alert system is a public safety system that allows customers who own certain wireless phone models and other enabled mobile devices to receive geographically-targeted, text-like messages alerting them of imminent threats to safety in their area.

Your Disturbing Lack Of Humanity Update

Stay calm. Stay armed. Stay Ready. Man’s inhumanity to man is unimaginable to most honest people.

BBgB3Iz

A 19-year-old woman was burned alive in the US after being beaten and having lighter fluid poured down her throat.

A murder investigation has been launched in Panola County, Mississippi, after Jessica Chambers’ death on Saturday. Her family said she used her last words to describe her killer to paramedics.

Firefighters called to her burning car in Courtland found her walking down the road on fire, her father said, and she died of severe burns later in hospital.

“They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose, and apparently they knocked her out,” Ben Chambers told television station WDBD-TV. “She had a big gash on top of her head.

“When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire … only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet.”

Mr Chambers, who works for the Panola Country Sheriff’s Department as a mechanic, said she used her last breaths to try and tell paramedics who attacked her, although police said they could not confirm the claim.

“She told them, she told them, told him who done it,” he said.

Miss Chambers was flown to a specialist hospital unit in Memphis but died. Post-mortem results showed she died of severe burns covering 98 per cent of her body.

Republican Betrayal: The $1.01T Crime-nibus Bill

WaPo has an outline of the contents. [My commentary is in bold/brackets.]

ABORTION:
The bill once again bans using federal funding to perform most abortions; blocks the use of local and federal funding for abortions in the District of Columbia; and blocks the use of federal dollars for abortions for federal prisoners. Republicans say that there’s also new language directing the secretary of health and human services to ensure that consumers shopping for health-care coverage on the federal exchange can tell whether a plan covers abortion services. [Blocking funding for abortions is always a win.]

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT:
The law is still funded, but there’s no new money for it. [This means that they are getting the same amount as last year. It is a shameful betrayal of the people who elected Republicans to congress. Nothing will change. If they are trying to provoke the people to armed insurrection, it’s working.]

CAMPAIGN FINANCE:

The bill would dramatically expand the amount of money that wealthy political donors could inject into the national parties, drastically undercutting the 2002 landmark McCain-Feingold campaign finance overhaul. Bottom line: A donor who gave the maximum $32,400 this year to the Democratic National Committee or Republican National Committee would be able to donate another $291,600 on top of that to the party’s additional arms — a total of $324,000, ten times the current limit. [I support the right of corporations to have a voice in the electoral process. This though, is beyond ridiculous. This is outright buying favors. I want someone to argue the other side of this, please – as I haven’t given it much thought.]

CLEAN WATER ACT:
In a win for Republicans, the spending bill blocks the Environmental Protection Agency from applying the law to certain farm ponds and irrigation ditches — a move that GOP aides said would benefit farmers.[Win.]

WaPo: “Deal reached on $1.01 trillion spending bill”

Cloward, meet Piven.

boehner laughing

Congressional leaders unveiled a massive $1.01 trillion spending bill Tuesday night that will keep most of the federal government funded through September.

The legislation is expected to pass in the coming days and will allow the incoming Republican-controlled Congress to clear the decks of lingering spending issues while setting the stage for a prolonged fight with President Obama over immigration policy.

At 1,603 pages, the bill includes at least $1.2 billion for agencies to deal with the influx of unaccompanied immigrant children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“The parents should be able to freely decide on what would amount to postnatal abortion”

From the National Post:

End-of-life debate turns to newborns: ‘Postnatal abortion’ morally acceptable in some cases, ethicist says

headstone

Doctors would be justified to end the lives of some terminally impaired newborn babies, says a prominent Canadian bioethicist in a report that pushes the country’s euthanasia debate into provocative new territory.

Much of the discussion of physician assisted-death in Canada has centred around adult patients capable of making known how they want to end their lives.

But Udo Schuklenk, a Queen’s University philosophy professor, argues that in rare cases of severely impaired, deeply suffering newborns, actively causing death is morally acceptable, if still illegal in this country.”

Illinois Makes Recording The Police A Felony

“Only a government that lives like cockroaches in the darkness would pass a law criminalizing the act of turning on the light.” Not unlike gun control – there is only one reason that the government would prevent you from defending yourself with voice & audio recordings of public officials acting in a public capacity. They mean to be stronger than you, so they can control you without you fighting back.

In March of this year the Illinois Supreme Court struck down the state’s eavesdropping law, and rightfully so, as it was touted as the most unconstitutional law of its kind in the country[…]

The Amendment to Senate Bill 1342 was introduced on Tuesday, Dec. 2, as an amendment to an existing bill on a completely different subject. The amendment removed all of the bill’s previous content and replaced it with the new ban on recording. The House passed it the following day, and the Senate passed it the day after that.

This bill passed both the Illinois House and Senate with overwhelming majority votes; 106-7 in the House on and 46-4-1 in the Senate[…]

According to IllinoisPolicy.org, the bill discourages people from recording conversations with police by making unlawfully recording a conversation with police – or an attorney general, assistant attorney general, state’s attorney, assistant state’s attorney or judge – a class 3 felony, which carries a sentence of two to four years in prison. Meanwhile, the bill makes illegal recording of a private citizen a class 4 felony, which carries a lower sentencing range of one to three years in prison[…]

Below is some of the vague wording from this legislation.

(a) Eavesdropping, for a first offense, is a Class 4 felony (from Ch. 38, par. 14-4) and, for a second or subsequent offense, is a Class 3 felony. (b) The eavesdropping of an oral conversation or an electronic communication of between any law enforcement officer, State’s Attorney, Assistant State’s Attorney, the Attorney General, Assistant Attorney General, or a judge, while in the performance of his or her official duties, if not authorized by this Article or proper court order, is a Class 3 felony, and for a second or subsequent offenses, is a Class 2 felony 1 felony.

The wording in this bill is also written in such a way that it could stifle the recent police accountability measures of body cameras. Police may argue that using body cameras to record encounters with citizens outside of “public” places would violate the law, as citizens have not consented to being recorded.

This isn’t the least bit surprising – coming out of Illinois – but it is frustrating, nonetheless. Why would you want to stifle the ability of the people to keep their public servants in check? I’m surprised they didn’t add themselves to the list of protected servants.

Hoping For Change In Wisconsin

beloit police car

The police chief in Beloit, Wisconsin is obviously a progressive. He is asking the town’s residents to Volunteer to have their homes searched for guns. He says he ‘Hopes he can get residents to think differently about those evil guns’.

Police Chief Norm Jacobs said he doesn’t expect the phone to be ringing off the hook with requests for police to search their homes. He nevertheless hopes the program will encourage people to think about gun violence as an infectious disease like Ebola, and a home inspection like a vaccine to help build up the city’s immune system.

“Gun violence is as serious as the Ebola virus is being represented in the media, and we should fight it using the tools that we’ve learned from our health providers,” he said.

Jacobs said he hopes some searches will result in the discovery of guns they didn’t know were in their own homes. He said that there’s also a chance they’ll find guns linked to crimes.”

Like all progressives, Chief Jacobs sees the problem of violence as the fault of the gun, not the perpetrator.

How many people in Beloit Wisconsin do you think have guns in their homes that they are unaware of? More importantly, what will Beloit police do when they find a , Gasp!, gun? Confiscate it? If so, what gives them authority to do so?

The article says there have been a grand total of seven ‘Gun Homicides’ in Beloit. Four were ‘Young Men in their teens or twenties’. Sounds to me that the Beloit police have a gang problem instead of a gun problem – and not a very big one at that.

Predictably, this stupidity comes from Wisconsin Public Radio.

What Is The Difference Between Issuing An Executive Order And Making Law By Fiat?

Actually, quite a lot. Law by fiat gives up all pretenses of legality.

President Obama went on national TV and announced that he was issuing an Executive Order that gave amnesty to millions of undocumented aliens. Then he never signed such an order. He just sent out a memo. But the nation is acting as though he did and as if it’s legitimate.

SunKingObama

“EXECUTIVE AMNESTY ORDER? WHAT ORDER?

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., a leading opponent of President Obama’s move to provide amnesty for up to 5 million illegal immigrants, expressed astonishment Monday and ridiculed the administration for not carrying out the action through an executive order.

In remarks made at the Washington office of the government-watchdog group Judicial Watch, Sessions said: “I guess they just whispered in the ear of (DHS Director) Jeh Johnson over at Homeland Security, ‘Just put out a memo. That way we don’t have to enforce the law.’”

How fitting. Gruber is an academic who places himself, and those with whom he agrees, far above the American people. But he has shown himself to be the stupid one by revealing to the world the prejudices he and his fellow progressives hold dear.
