  1. So what do we have here? Wh have the blacks rioting and burning down buildings, and stores, and breaking in to these stores so that they could STEAL STUFF, anything that they could get their filthy hands on no matter if they need it or not, but just STEAL, STEAL, STEAL. And for what? In defense of a 300 plus pound criminal !! And now that a video has leaked out that the animal that was shot just after committed strong armed robbery !!And also info is leaking out that the cop was treated for injuries indicating a physical altercation before the officer made Michael Brown good. if you think this makes any difference to these SAVAGES looting stores and steeling TV sets and car rims and burning down buildings in honor of the 300 plus pound criminal think again. And as expected we are seeing those same bleeding hearts over on the left called Progressives defending those assholes who are looting shit. It doesn't matter to these looters if the if the 300 plus pound criminal was shot and killed! It just gives them the chance and the opportunity to looting shit!
    As long as we keep making excuses for these sub human animals this kind of behavior it will only get worse.

      "As long as we keep making excuses for these sub human animals this kind of behavior it will only get worse."

      Should Jerome Katzenjammer really be referring to the police as sub-human animals? Just because the police shot an unarmed person in the back (more than once), does not make the police sub-human animals.

  2. Today, I saw this comment about the Ferguson riots:

    The perp had a gun in his belt. The cop behind him saw it and yelled gun. The gun is in his dead hand on the ground.

    Does anyone in this thread have a link confirming that information?

    RICK PERRY INDICTED: ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC PARTY DIRTY TRICK

    A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.

    The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption. It was that office, controlled by the Democratic Party machine, that infamously indicted Tom DeLay for nothing. It took years before DeLay could finally clear his name, and his career was ruined.

    Conservatives should respond to this indictment by rallying around Perry. The indictment is a bad joke, intended simply to generate negative publicity. As with the bogus DeLay indictment from the same source, years may go by before it is finally proved baseless. In the meantime, conservatives should stand behind Perry and denounce the politically-motivated machinations of Texas Democrats.

And once again sadly Obama has put his 2 cents into th works to fuel the flames, and that only contributed to provoke those animals to riot. .

  6. Lets call it like it is. At this point the rioting, burring, stealing, and destroying property no longer has nothing to do with protesting the shooting, but has everything to do with these people acting like the wild animals they are. Unless you count stealing and looting as protesting! ..It’s time for the National Guard to start shooting these looters. Enough is more than enough.

    These IGNORANT Bastards was carrying picket signs that read, ““God hates divorce”, another one read, “Williams mocked God with his comedy” and another said “Robin in hell” with a picture of his head in flames.

    And more evidence that the Left are a bunch of Wacko’s.
    A Marine combat veteran was denied admission to a New Jersey amusement park because he was wearing a patriotic Fourth of July shirt with a picture of a military rifle on it.

    Mario Alejandro, 33, a veteran of the 2003 Iraq invasion, was stopped by a security guard when he and his family tried to enter Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, N.J., because his black shirt bore a drawing of an M-26 military rifle in red, white and blue, and the slogan, “Keep Calm and Return Fire,”

  12. These incredible Progressive Morons thinks that the Moonbat Messiah we now have as resident of OUR White House grew up as an ordinary Black American Citizen.

    That couldn't be further from the truth.

    Obozo has no clue what it's like to live as an impoverished black person growing up in a ghetto. He's never been arrested for Walking While Black" in a white suburb. He's never had to choose between working hard at school or being ridiculed for "acting white". He's never been denied a job because he was black, he's never had a real job anyway. But he sure likes to yack about it. He sure wants everyone to think it’s so.

    Obozo doesn't give a flying rat's behaid about black people in this country. He uses them for HIS own political gain, period.

    His own blood relatives (that is if Frank Marshal Davis isn't his true father) live in squalid conditions in Kenya. $100 a month from him could change their lives. He has "family" in the states that live in the ghetto, but only Moochelle's mother is fit to get any support from the family.
    And pleeeaase don’t get me started on Moochelle, our First Wookie, the one that these Smug, Arrogant, Imbeciles think is the most Wonderful and Beautiful First lady American has ever had!!.

    there are 14.82 murders per 100K by blacks versus 2.17 per 100K for whites,

      Liberals seem almost pathologically accommodating of that most illiberal of all the world's religions, Islam. My theory is "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" - that is, since the people most alarmed by Islamic extremism are conservatives, their hate for conservatives trumps what should be a natural disdain for a religion that sanctions, for example, barbarism toward women.
      Additionally, liberals with a national audience will mock and slander Christians and Christianity in ways they'd never dare with Islam. May have something to do with the fact that Christians don't riot, behead people and blow people up when they're offended. Real brave, those liberals.

      Really? What I've been hearing from many GOP pundits and others is to bomb the hell out of ISIS.

      The beheading of James Foley and the threat of beheading the next journalist, already a captive, is a clever strategy on the part of ISIS. Now, no matter what Obama does, he's damned by one crowd or another.

      Actually, what I do know as reasonably as I can is that the coalition should have bombed the hell out of ISIS back in January when the ISIS forces were smaller and, more importantly, out in the open and not well armed.

      Now, estimates show that ISIS is 80,000 troops strong. A formidable force!

      ISIS will behead the second journalist if ISIS doesn't get back control of the Mosul dam. Already, the Obama administration has stated that the United States will keep on doing in Iraq as we have been doing.

      First, the United States ought to recognize Kurdistan as it exists outside the borders of Turkey.

      Second, the United States ought to recognize the Shia state of Iraq as it exists in the southern and southeastern territory controlled by the Iraqi government.

      Third, all surrounding nations are to be notified of our intent of recognizing the Islamic State of Iraq as it exists as controlled territory at the end of ninety days.

      Fourth, at the end of ninety days we recognize the Islamic State of Iraq and declare war on it, demanding their unconditional surrender.

      After that, any violation of international law committed by the Islamic State of Iraq shall be met with military reprisal. First any identifiable military equipment goes, then the airports, power plants, dams, bridges, railroads, highways... treat them as we treated the axis in WWII.

      Has AOW not been paying attention? Since President Obama won the Presidency, the Republican'T crowd has been damning USA and President Obama.

      AND ... had President Obama acted in any other way than he did, the USA hating Republican'T Party would scream President Obama was kowtowing to Muslim Brotherhood terrorists.

      Ahem. You need to review grammar information about the use of now as an interjection -- not as a time-frame qualifier. I was using now-comma in the sense of "now then" (as opposed as merely saying "well").

    9. Typo alert! The words (as opposed as merely saying "well") should read as opposed to merely saying "well".

    10. As a time qualifier in the example cited by Ema, it should have been placed thusly:

      "No matter what Obama now does, he's damned by one crowd or another." There is no ambiguity if one uses that placement; of course, such placement was at all what I meant.

      I love grammar!

    Obama’s motorcade actually zipped quickly past where he gave his pathetic speech about the beheading of an AMERICAN to the first hole after his pathetic media session on the murder of James Wright Foley.
    Obama delivered a short pathetic statement and took no questions from the media.
    And was seen cutting up, and laughing on the Golf course just moments after.
    After his pathetic speech Obama was asked a comment......He said... “ NO COMMENTS”

He thought that if he gave good speech, looked nice in a suit, said the right things that he could just breeze through his presidency (I honestly believe that's how he approaches being president). He's never liked being president ... but oh those perks, playing gold with big stars, and dancing , and partying with Hollywood celebs, having his Wookie appearing on all those late night TV show, all those goodies never seems to end! He just couldn't resist. I have never been more embarrassed of a president and more concerned at the lack of leadership. And ISIS is ALL on him, and on HIS watch!

    Of course these individuals lack the power of introspection, even when someone holds a mirror in front of their face.

    Octopus, and other liberals than conservatives that may share more of my political views but who give a nod and a wink to these asshat trolls, like those found on AOW’s blog and assassins only because they aren't liberal.

    It seems as though all the average T-Bagger, republican, Conservative want to hear are these meaningless speeches about their loss of freedoms, gun controls, illegal immigration, and baseball and apple pie. They don't want to hear the truth which is that republicans have nothing to offer, and that’s why they haven’t beaten Barack Obama or won an election since their last failed disaster named George W. Bush.

  52. Let’s face it. There are times when the blogosphere resembles a war zone.
    Anonymous trolls, predators, stalkers, and comment assassins – they pop up sight unseen like whack-a-moles. Some merely argue in bad faith; some rise to the level of road rage; others leave behind taunts and menacing comments. Some incidents are more memorable – meaning more disturbed and disturbing – than others. For over a year, a persistent predator has been stalking this community

    It is difficult to know who "he" the “Troll” is. Trolls are aplenty and certainly I have a few that target me everywhere. It's just the price one pays for not "staying on the reservation" or having independent views. As well, trolls, and their boorish behavior are not limited to any particular political or philosophical view or party.

    My philosophy is that Republics will fail and fall, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.

This is the crap-ola the Media is reporting.

    I guess that there bleeding heart Progressives never knew that Constitutionally, a police officer can shoot a suspect who is threatening the life of the officer, a fellow officer or a member of the public..

    Perhaps Officer Brown was on his way home to have Tea and biscuits. And the Cop just blazed away at the Un-armed Gentle “Teen” Giant, while he was just walking down the Street eating Skittles and drinking Iced tea for no reason.

    And by the way, since last Friday afternoon there was 43 people shot and KILLED in Chicago including a 6year old, and guess what? NO Presidential delegation was sent... NONE!
    Do you think that the American people might finally get the message. I think not, and don't hold your breath.. And how about the General that was just killed in Iraqi? I get it - everything for the street-thugs and criminals but nothing for the real heroes of America.

  57. The Obama administration announced this weekend that it will be sending not one, but THREE, officials to attend the funeral of Michael Brown on Monday.
    President Barack Obama is sending three White House officials to the funeral service of the Missouri teenager whose death in a police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, has sparked days of racial unrest.
    Leading the group for Monday's service will be the chairman of the My Brother's Keeper Task Force, Broderick Johnson. My Brother's Keeper is an Obama initiative that aims to empower young minorities. Johnson is also the secretary for the Cabinet.
    Also attending will be the deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, Marlon Marshall, and an adviser for the office, Heather Foster.

    This decision was highly questionable as is, but when compared to the White House’s presence at, say, the funerals of Maj. Gen. Harold Greene an American General that was killed by Iraqi Terrorist’s or British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, it’s DEPLORABLE.

    And In just case you were wondering, Obama was golfing during Greene’s funeral.

  58. Rant Time? I guess it is!
    If one were to look at today’s Democratic Liberal, Progressive Party, they would find there is very little difference, if any between it the Communist Party. And this is the Party which twice endorsed and elected Barack Obama to the Highest office in the land. The office of the president of the United States of America TWICE! They elected a man whose father was a Communist, whose grandparents who helped raise him were Socialists, and who was mentored by a card-carrying member of the Communist Party of the United States. A man who sat in the Church of a Pastor (Jeremiah Wright) who clearly stated that BLACKS SHOULD NOT sing "GOD BLESS AMERICA" BUT "GOD DAMN AMERICA."
    The very same Reverend Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, "The Audacity of Hope."
    We have a President who believes that the problems throughout the world have been caused by America. His disdain for the nation and the military that serves to protect it is on full display. And the Democratic Party twice chose him as its candidate.

    If you want to see what Communism looks like, acts and says, watch and listen to the Democratic Party.
    The American People who are members of the Democratic, Liberal, Progressive Party march to the drum of Communism.

    This is the reason I have long suggested that the Republicans do a frontal assault on the true Marxist-Leninist orientation of the Democrat Party.
    This is a disgusting display of hypocrisy and is proof positive that we’ve finally hit the bottom of the barrel.
    It’s no wonder that Conservatives (like me), and Tea Party supporters (like me) are FED UP to our Ears with this man! Us patriotic Americans know exactly what Obamas goals are and WE don’t like it and we don’t want any part of the racist Community Organizer, or the racist, Community Agitator, Al Sharpton who now seems to be at the highest level of Obama’s Administration, as Obama's Race Ambassador.

  63. Michael Brown could have been a son , or an older brother who played with his little siblings, of the president of these United States. Just as Trayvor martin “could have”.But instead, he took to the streets where he made a lifetime of stealing and manhandling, store clerks. His bad decision or decisions made him who he turned out to be. After all Michael Brown was black, and Blacks are born with 2 strikes against them already. And he was only human and human beings often make bad decisions.

    I understand the negativity of stereotyping, but the fact are facts and these are the facts. OLD RICH WHITE REPUBLICAN PEOPLE may tell you differently, but these ARE the facts.
    I don't care that he smoked pot, face it, over half of the young people in America smoke pots these days, should we shoot them all down in the streets? I think not.
    Let us not forget that the police are required to follow the law themselves.

    The White community can put every spin that they can think of to try to justify the killing of that young man, but they are not succeeding...........you probably think Black America is blind to the truth here. we are not a community of useless, free- grabbing, degenerates, and crazy people who need to get a job, a life, and quit tugging, attacking, looting and shooting people.

      Ever been charged by a 292 pound male? I have. In a school hallway. I was able to retreat.

      Retreat isn't always possible.

      Furthermore, the full toxicology report on Michael Brown might give more information. PCP, for example, enables extraordinary strength and speed. I'm not saying that Michael Brown was a PCP user; pot can be treated with PCP without the toker knowing it.

      See this about PCP-laced marijuana. Note that it can have a strong analgesic effect.

      As one who saw what PCP did to my own 18-year-old cousin, I have to think about that possibility.

      Again, WE SHOULD WAIT MAKING OUR OWN EVALUATIONS OF THIS CASE -- UNTIL ALL THE EVIDENCE IS IN!

    Norvell Rose — August 26, 2014
    A president whose approval rating is suffering often tries to rescue his popularity by wrapping himself in the flag. You know, giving a rousing, stars-and-stripes speech about our American values as exemplified and protected by the armed forces…or going before a military group to generate supportive applause and good ole red, white, and blue media coverage.
    Well, if that sort of ratings boost was Barack Obama’s goal in appearing before the American Legion’s annual convention in Charlotte, NC, not only did the president fall short of that goal…he absolutely fumbled the ball.


    And from Fox News
    Obama's] 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House’s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out.
    A Virginia legionnaire who served in the U.S. Marine Corps told MailOnline that ‘a small group of Obama’s admirers – and there are some here – sat near the front and tried to generate applause for him about 10 times.’
    ‘They didn’t get much pickup,’ the retired lieutenant colonel said of the ‘instigators’ gathered at the Charlotte, North Carolina event, but ‘they were persistent. You could tell when the applause was genuine and when it wasn’t. It was obvious to everyone here.’
    Most of the veterans sat on their hands, leaving awkward silences where White House speech writers expected ovations.


    I guess that he can't be bothered with the BIG things that are happening these days!

  68. "Whether Officer Wilson knew about the robbery or not, the robbery goes to Brown's state of mind that day."

    Yes, and it speaks volumes about his [general] character, as well. Of course, that doesn't matter to Liberals who continue to think of this, obvious, thug as a "gentle giant"!

  70. As expected , the alleged CNN audio of the shooting was a phoney! And as I expected, the officer shot in rapid-fire fashion as indicated on the tape. I'd figured that when seeing the autopsy results and noting the hit pattern on Mr. Brown's arm. The pause in the shooting audio being hyped up isn't surprising either. It's indicative of the officer either losing track of how many rounds he'd fired and reloading to be safe then resuming fire, or more likely, noticing his target isn't falling down correcting, taking a deep breath and continuing to fire.

    While emptying your clip, reloading, and emptying another might seem excessive to laypeople, it's actually what officers are taught to do. My thinking is once he began to fire on Mr. Brown he reverted to his training model and did exactly as he'd been trained to do. Whether he reloaded or not is moot. Whether he paused and corrected and resumed fire is moot. He behaved as he'd been trained and the justification to use lethal force doesn't change or cease because you pause in the exercise of it.

    While some are describing the audio as 'damning' I think it simply further vindicates the officer.
