Freddie Gray Autopsy Shows Questionable Conclusions

Maybe now we know why Ms. Mosby didn’t want this out. The autopsy seems to contain a number of questionable conclusions, to put it mildly.

From the Baltimore Sun:

Autopsy of Freddie Gray shows ‘high-energy’ blow

By Justin Fenton | June 23, 2015

Freddie Gray suffered a single "high-energy injury" to his neck and spine — most likely caused when the police van in which he was riding suddenly decelerated [sic], according to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by The Baltimore Sun.

Exactly how can anyone tell the difference between injuries caused from the van suddenly stopping (for which there are no witnesses), versus injuries caused by Mr. Gray throwing himself against a van wall (for which there are witnesses)? (Hint: they can’t.)

The state medical examiner’s office concluded that Gray’s death could not be ruled an accident, and was instead a homicide, because officers failed to follow safety procedures "through acts of omission."

So following the same procedures the Baltimore Police Department had used for decades until nine days before is suddenly a crime of omission?

Sally Kohn: Taking Down Confederate Flag Not Enough

Ms. Kohn says taking down the flag isn’t enough. We must take down racism. Why hasn’t anyone ever thought of that before?

From  Sally Kohn at CNN:

Taking down Confederate flag is not enough

By Sally Kohn | June 23, 2015

(CNN) It’s a relief that South Carolina leaders, including Republicans such as Gov. Nikki Haley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, are finally calling for the removal of the Confederate flag that still flies on the Capitol grounds.

That flag should have been taken down 150 years ago at the end of the Civil War. And political leaders should have stood firmly against the Confederate flag — and all it stands for — before the Charleston shooting.

Can Ms. Kohn name any other symbol that is banned in the United States?

NASCAR Bans Confederate Flag It Has Banned For Years

NASCAR has officially prohibited Confederate flags for at least a decade. But that doesn’t matter. This is a victory over the rednecks. And yet it’s still not enough for some.

From The Hill:

NASCAR joins race to disavow Confederate flag

By Keith Laing | June 23, 2015

NASCAR… said Tuesday that it agrees with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s (R) call for removing the flag after nine African-Americans were killed in a shooting at a church in Charleston. "NASCAR supports the position that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley took on the Confederate Flag on Monday," the company said in a statement.

"As our industry works collectively to ensure that all fans are welcome at our races, NASCAR will continue our long-standing policy to disallow the use of the Confederate Flag symbol in any official NASCAR capacity," the statement continued.

Confederate Flag Sales Soar, Before Amazon Bans Them

Are these stores also going to stop selling merchandize that gang members use to distinguish themselves from each other? If not, why not?

From a distraught CBS News:

Amazon’s Confederate flag sales skyrocket

June 23, 2015

Even as national retailers pull Confederate flags from shelves and websites after the shooting deaths of nine black church members in Charleston, South Carolina, manufacturers that produce the divisive symbol [sic] said that sales were surging. On Tuesday afternoon, five of the six items on Amazon.com’s "movers and shakers" list in the Patio, Home and Garden category were Confederate flags. Sales of the most popular flag in the category had risen 8,800 percent in the last 24 hours.

However, Amazon shoppers were no longer able to buy them — or any merchandise featuring the Confederate flag.

Hillary Insists: Confederate Flag Shouldn’t Fly Anywhere

Didn’t she just seven month ago lecture us on how we needed to show more respect for our enemies and to try to understand and empathize with them?

From an irony proof Associated Press:

Hillary Clinton: Confederate Flag ‘Shouldn’t Fly Anywhere’

June 23, 2015

FLORISSANT, Mo. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says the Confederate flag “shouldn’t fly anywhere.” The Democratic presidential contender calls the deadly shootings of nine black church members in South Carolina “an act of racist terrorism perpetrated in a house of God.”

Gee, why would she go to a town right next to Ferguson, Missouri to make these remarks? Does she, like Dylann Roof, want to start another civil war?

Also, when was the last time Hillary described an attack by a Muslim extremist as terrorism?

Obama Allows Ransoms; ISIS Drowns Captives In Cages

Obama is going to sign an executive order making it even more profitable for terrorists like ISIS to take US hostages. So we thought we would post some reminders of whom we will be dealing with.

First, from a joyous New York Times:

Obama Ordering Changes in U.S. Hostage Policies

By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS | June 23, 2015

WASHINGTON — President Obama will announce Wednesday that the government will no longer threaten criminal prosecution of the families of American hostages who are held abroad by groups like the Islamic State if they try to pay ransom for the release of their loved ones…

In a presidential directive and an executive order [sic] enshrining the changes, Mr. Obama also plans to make it clear that while he is keeping a longstanding federal prohibition against making concessions to those who take hostages, the government can communicate and negotiate with captors holding Americans or help family members seeking to do so in order to ensure their safe return.

Obama: ‘Fox News Viewers Get A Different Set Of Facts’

Apparently, Mr. Obama wants Fox News and its millions of viewers to go the way of the Confederate Flag.

From Breitbart:

Obama Attacks Fox News Viewers… Again

By Charlie Spiering | June 22, 2015

President Obama continued his criticism of Fox News, arguing that the network’s viewers are getting a different set of facts than the rest of the country. During a WTF Podcast with Marc Maron, Obama lamented that the media is “splintered” now, with all kinds of different news outlets.

"A WTF podcast." Speaking of the downward descent of our language.

“We’re not in a common conversation,” he said. “If you watch Fox News you inhabit a completely different world with different facts than if you read (the) New York Times,” he said.

Cornel West Claims: ‘Obama Has Become N*****ized’

Am we the only ones who are sick of all this? How have we descended into this level of discourse? We thought Obama was supposed to move us past all of this.

From Real Clear Politics:

Cornel West on Obama: "The First Black President Has Become The First Niggerized Black President"

June 22, 2015

Reacting to President Obama’s use of the n-word on Marc Maron’s podcast, Cornel West called him the first "niggerized" president in an appearance on CNN. West criticized Obama as "a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy."

"Too many black people are niggerized," West said Monday on CNN. "I would say the first black president has become the first niggerized black president."

Try to imagine the fireworks if a white person had said this.

Obama Stands By Use Of ‘N-Word'; It’s Called A Pay-Off

Why can’t anyone explain exactly what good the use of this word by the President of the United States has accomplished?

First from The Hill:

White House: Obama stands by use of N-word

By Jordan Fabian | June 22, 2015

President Obama has no regrets about using the N-word to make a point during a recent discussion on race, the White House said Monday. “He does not,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “The president’s use of the word and the reason he used the word could not be more apparent.”

Sadly, that is all too true. Mr. Obama will say or do anything to keep the wounds of racism fresh and loaded with salt.

The president’s phrasing renewed a debate over who is allowed to use the word and when it’s appropriate to say…

We thought this was ‘settled science.’ Only authentically black people who are ‘down for the struggle’ can use the ‘N Word’.

Walmart To Stop Selling Confederate Flag Merchandise

Plus, Hillary won’t explain the apparent use of the Confederate battle flag in Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign.

But first there is this via Mediaite:

Walmart Will Stop Selling Confederate Flag Merchandise

By Josh Feldman | June 22, 2015

… The controversy over the Confederate flag renewed after pictures were uncovered of the Charleston church shooter having a Confederate flag license plate. People have argued the kind of hate the flag represents has no place in modern America. Well, now Walmart is taking action too… The retail giant will no longer sell any merchandise with Confederate flags on them.

A spokesperson explained, “We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site.”

Well, the American flag offends a lot of people from both ends of the political spectrum.

Haley Calls For Flag Removal; TNR Says She Is No Hero

Remember when there was a push to enact a Constitutional amendment to make it illegal to burn the US flag? The supporters were told it nonsense to make so much fuss over a piece of cloth. Whatever happened to that?

First, from NBC News:

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Calls for Removal of Confederate Flag From State Capitol

by Elisha Fieldstadt | June 22, 2015

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.

Media Matters Head Admits: We Defend Hillary Clinton

Plus, it appears the Tea Party isn’t the only group the IRS has delayed tax exemption for. They also delayed 501C3 approval for a pro-Israel organization.

But first there is this from the Daily Caller:

Media Matters Founder: We Defend Hillary Clinton!

By Patrick Howley | June 22, 2015

Media Matters For America founder David Brock admitted Monday that his nonprofit, tax-exempt organization specifically defends Hillary Clinton, a political candidate for office, from Republican criticism…

What a surprise, since in reality, Media Matters was actually created at Hillary’s request. Though, of course, they shouldn’t admit this for the reason this article goes on to note.

Brock made the admission in an op-ed defending his group’s association with Sidney Blumenthal, Hillary Clinton’s political adviser and informal Libya consultant… Blumenthal testified in a closed-door session last week with Rep.

Schweizer: ‘Hillary Is Either Incompetent Or Dishonest’

Of course, there is no reason why Hillary couldn’t be both incompetent and dishonest. In fact, all indications are that she is both.

Here is Mr. Schweizer’s response to Hilary’s interview, via an op-ed in the New York Post:

‘Clinton Cash’ author demolishes Hillary’s self-defense

By Peter Schweizer | June 22, 2015

Grave incompetence or brazen dishonesty? Those are the only two conclusions one can reasonably come to after reviewing Hillary Clinton’s stunning Sunday interview on local New Hampshire TV. When WMUR local TV host Josh McElveen asked Hillary Clinton why her State Department greenlit the transfer of 20 percent of all US uranium to the Russian government, Clinton claimed she had no involvement in her own State Department’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia.

Hillary: ‘Clinton Cash’ Full Of Wild Inaccurate Allegations

This is Hillary’s rebuttal, after all these weeks? It’s laughable. No wonder she decided to try it out first on some local radio station.

From Breitbart:

Hillary: ‘Clinton Cash’ Full of Wild Inaccurate Allegations, a Partisan Axe

By Pam Key | June 21, 2015

Sunday on “CloseUP” with Josh McElveen for the first time Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton answered questions brought up in the book “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer...

[Hillary] said, “I think part of the interesting twist to this is most foundations, charities do not publish all of their contributors. The Clinton Foundation does.”

And never mind that most foundations do publish their contributors (in their 990 forms and elsewhere). And, even now, the Clinton Foundation still has not published all if their donors.

OPM Hack May Affect 18M; Hillary Says State Is Hit Daily

Note that the the Chi-Coms hacked into information obtained during "security clearances." Information that would be especially handy for blackmail purposes.

From CNN:

U.S. data hack may be 4 times larger than the government originally said

By Evan Perez and Shimon Prokupecz | June 23, 2015

Washington (CNN) — The personal data of an estimated 18 million current, former and prospective federal employees were affected by a cyber breach at the Office of Personnel Management – more than four times the 4.2 million the agency has publicly acknowledged…

Of course it is a scandal in its own right that there are over 18 million current and former federal employees. Who is going to pay for their benefits? — Actually, come to think of it, that might be why the Chinese were so interested in them.
