The Foley family received an email one week ago from their son’s captors. ISIS threatened to kill James Foley if the United States continued airstrikes in Iraq. The White House was immediately informed of the threat.

DailyMail

…Foley’s family received an emailed threat a week ago warning ‘that they would execute Jim,’ and made the White House aware of it right away, according to Philip Balboni, who founded the Global Post – a Boston news outlet that published Foley’s photographs.

Balboni told reporters that Phil Balboni the kidnappers’ email was ‘full of rage against the United States for the bombing’ of ISIS targets.

‘[We] explained to them that Jim was an innocent journalist, had done no harm to the Syrian people,’ he said. ‘Sadly they showed no mercy to Jim….’

Media Plays Down Shooting of White Man by Black Cop

, , , , ,


To all of the Blacks pushing that bogus story line that law enforcement only kills Black people, listen up.

Less than 48 hours after the police shooting of an 18-year-old Black teen in Ferguson, St. Louis, Missouri another shooting occurred.

25 year ol Dillon Taylor (Facebook).

25 year old, Dillon Taylor (Facebook).

On August 11th outside a 7-Eleven convenience store, 25 year old, Dillon Taylor was shot and killed by a Black police officer in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Clearly, shedding light on the double standard and selective media outrage, the shooting of Taylor has been largely overlooked by the mainstream media.

Could it be that Taylor wasn’t Black enough? Definitely, Dillon Taylor is a Caucasian male.

WND

Police in Salt Lake City are continuing their probe into an Aug. 11 shooting outside a 7-Eleven convenience store, when a black police officer, whom local media are referring to as “not white,” shot and killed 20-year-old Dillon Taylor, who is white and was unarmed at the time, according to his supporters.

Police Chief Chris Burbank said the entire incident was captured on the body camera of the officer who shot Taylor….

Rush Limbaugh said it best in Wednesday’s podcast.

Have You Heard About the Salt Lake City Shooting? – Rush Limbaugh (excerpt)

Now, note the similarities to the Michael Brown story, except in this case there’s no evidence that the victim actually committed a crime, as there is in St. Louis. And note the total absence of any mention of race in this story. There is absolutely no mention of race. Now, from all accounts, Dillon Taylor didn’t obey the cop’s orders because he was wearing headphones. He may not have heard the order to “get down.” He reportedly was trying to pull up his pants in order to get down on the floor.

In any case, he didn’t resist. He didn’t hit the cop. He didn’t try to flee, and yet he was shot dead. The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, but in this story there was no reference whatsoever to race.

Now, our caller said that the police officer that pulled the trigger’s black, except the media in Salt Lake City’s not referring to him that way. They are referring to the officer as “other-than-white…”

Continue Reading

Taylor’s family is demanding justice as well but the media is not listening because the mainstream media in collusion with the grievance industry need Americans, in particular Black Americans to believe that whatever the circumstance police only shoot Black people. Blacks should find that offensive.

Double standard?

Selective outrage?

Lies of omission by the media?

Racism?

How say you?

Anti-Israeli Protesters Hang Palestinian Flag on Manhattan Bridge

Two weeks after pranksters artists displayed two German flags high atop the Brooklyn Bridge, anti-Israeli activists protesting the Israeli/Hamas conflict hung a Palestinian flag on the lower south side of the Manhattan Bridge.

The flag remained in place for about 30 minutes before it was removed read, “boycott, divest, sanction.”

The march started at Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza. Protesters shouting, “Free Palestine” and “Long Live the Intifada” made their way across the Brooklyn Bridge toward New York City Police Plaza.

In addition to the Israeli/Hamas conflict, protesters wanted to shed light on “attention to the unequivocal support of Israel by NYC’s political elite, despite overwhelming condemnation from the international community… connecting Palestinian resistance to Israeli aggression to recent struggles in the U.S. against highly militarized police departments….”

In other words, every one of these hypocrites has an agenda of their own. Therefore, all are taking advantage of the crisis in Ferguson. They all want to be Mike Brown. Balderdash.

What the protest has done is highlighted another difference between Michael Bloomberg and Bill de Blasio.

Although the man is a putz, under Bloomberg, the two German flags would never have made it atop the Brooklyn Bridge in the first place. Furthermore, we would not reading today about anti-Israeli supporters unfurling the Palestinian flag on the Manhattan Bridge either.

No one can say that the Obama wannabe, Bill de Blasio, is slipping because he never had it. De Blasio is out to lunch all of the time.

Finally, NYPD had better put an end to this. Otherwise, we’ll have every group hanging their nation or ideological flags on our bridges. This must be stopped now.

Ferguson Reporters Robbed and Attacked by Mob

Tags

, ,


A reporter covering the protests in Ferguson has her cellphone stolen. Surprised? Nope, especially when one takes into consideration the mainstream media’s treatment of the City of Ferguson, i.e., as if the residents are on display as part of a dog and pony show when the real circus is the mainstream media.

Anyone who has been following the protests live stream has noticed the media frenzy.

screenshot ferguson protest 002 08182014

Anyone who has been following the protests live stream has noticed the media frenzy once they arrived in Ferguson. If you recall, citizen journalists and social media not the media who broke the stories on protests and riots in Ferguson

Bunched together, the media behaves as if they are tourists visiting the zoo, impatiently waiting for the sea lions to perform.

Watching them clamor and the moment something happens scurry off in a group hoping to be the one to get the money shot is offensive and bound to piss off the residents of Ferguson.

The Mysterious Mike Brown Autopsy – And How The Parks and Crump “Scheme Team” Used Their New York Times Cohort Frances Robles To Sell The Lie…

The Brown Family attorney’s Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks are now claiming Mike Brown was “executed” by Officer Wilson to CNN:

(Via CNN)  We are getting a new description of the shooting of Michael Brown from a woman calling herself “Josie” and claiming to be a friend of the police officer who fired the fatal shots. She describes Brown pushing officer Darren Wilson and punching him in the face. That contradicts the account given by Michael Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, who was with him at the time and witnessed the shooting.

Attorney Benjamin Crump is representing the Brown family. He spoke to Anderson and described the shooting as an execution.  (link)

To support their “execution” claim, they are pointing to “their autopsy” given to the New York Times.

Israeli Vessel Blocked from Docking at Oakland Port

BeFunky_null propalestinian activists block israeli ship from docking at Oakland port

 

Since Saturday, thousands of anti-Israeli protesters have blocked an Israeli cargo ship from docking and unloading at the port of Oakland.

Protesting the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the goal of the pro-Palestinian activists is to block Israeli from docking at American seaports throughout the western U.S. and Canada.

The target of their ire is Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd., Israel’s largest shipping company headquartered in Norfolk.

TheBlaze

Saturday’s protest drew several thousand people, Al Jazeera reported, one of a slew of “Block the Boat“ events planned for the West Coast, with similar actions slated for Seattle and Tacoma, Washington, on Wednesday and, later, Vancouver.

The protests are fueled, in part, by trade unions….

As posted on Block the Boat’s Facebook page, the longshoremen’s union is standing with pro-Palestinian activists. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union refused to cross the picket lines, which makes it impossible for cargo vessels, Zim Lines and others to dock and unload.

ZIM ship turned away from SSA!

August 19, 2014

For four days straight the San Francisco Bay Area community blocked the Israeli ZIM ship from unloading at the Port of Oakland. And today, we salute the rank and file of ILWU for standing with us against Israeli Apartheid by honoring our pickets and letting the ship go from the SSA terminal this afternoon!

Saturday we mobilized thousands of our community to show the world that Oakland does not welcome racism, apartheid or Zionism, from Ferguson to Palestine. We flooded the streets and marched towards the Port only to discover that the ZIM ship decided to stay at Bay rather than dock and be confronted by the power of our numbers. The ship attempted to dock and unload on Sunday, but within a half hour’s time hundreds of us organized community pickets requesting that ILWU to stand with us on the side of justice and not unload the Apartheid ship. And as ILWU always has, and as they did during South African Apartheid, they demonstrated their solidarity with the global fight against oppression and honored our picket. Once again on Monday, and then on Tuesday morning, community pickets coupled with worker solidarity stopped the ZIM ship from unloading….

According to JOC.com, the protesters were long gone Tuesday but the marine terminal remained closed because longshoremen refused to show up for work due to the situation evolving from supporting protesters to a problem between the union and management.

According to Communist newspaper, Workers World, protesters tied the blockade of the Israeli cargo vessel to the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.

When they reached the berth at SSA where the Zim would have been tied up, the protesters were met with a large and menacing police line across the entire driveway where the longshore workers enter to work the ships. Spontaneously, the crowd marched square up to the police, raising their hands in the air and chanting “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” to indicate support for the African-American community in Ferguson….

Odd isn’t it that who support Hamas support of the Islamization of the United States and jihad, are permitted to set up blockades at U. S. seaports against our allies.

james foley american journalist beheaded by isis

As reported by ABC, the White House knew in advance that ISIS intended to behead American journalist, James Foley. Foley’s murder is in retaliation to U. S. airstrikes in Iraq. H/t Twitchy.

The White House had been aware of the threat prior to the release of a video Tuesday night that appears to show the beheading of Foley and warns that militants will carry out a similar act against U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, who went missing in August, the official said.

If this mugshot of Robert Burt simply a bit surreal, it is because Burt was arrested wearing a teeshirt with his prior mugshot displayed on the front. He now has a great image for the back. Consider it a low-rent version of Norman Rockwell’s Triple Self-Portrait technique.

Ferguson Officer Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack


Originally posted on BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!:

While the calls for the lynching of Police Officer Darren Wilson continue without concern for the truth of the matter, this little part of the story slowly comes out. Apparently  Michael Brown was not rising to Sainthood as has been portrayed by the unrelenting media and Governor of the great state of Missouri,

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.
