*(GENTLE GIANTS FOR A TUESDAY)* Black Lives Matter Netroots Mob: “Burn Everything Down”

Published on Jul 27, 2015

In rarely seen angle on the [Black Lives Matter mob takeover] of a NetRoots Nation Presidential Town Hall last weekend in Phoenix, Arizona activists from the group scream explicit calls for violence and chaos, using an Occupy Wall Street style call-and-response technique to advocate “burn everything down”, “shut this shit down” and “rise the fuck up.”
The shouted manifesto lays bare the theory behind the burning, looting, and rioting that happened in recent months in Baltimore and Ferguson and it also lays out the group’s agenda on current news events like immigration reform, transgender activism and the fables about the death of convicted criminal Sandra Bland that the group is spreading through the media.
The nascent Black Lives Matter movement can’t claim that these statements were made by a few fringe members: the entire rant was orchestrated by Black Lives Matter Founder Patrisee Cullors, who can be seen in the video enthusiastically pumping her fist and shouting along with every incendiary statement.

Every American Needs To Hear What This Latino Just Said About Trump On Live TV

During Trump’s visit to the Mexican border on Thursday, she waged her own war of words with anti-Trump protesters.

BY JACK DAVIS

Mexican-American Rosa Palacios said she likes the sound of the truth, and she likes Donald Trump for saying it. During Trump’s visit to the Mexican border on Thursday, she waged her own war of words with anti-Trump protesters at the event and forthrightly defended Trump to a CNN reporter.

“I like what he’s doing. I love what he’s gonna be doing,” she said, in contrast to other Latinos gathered in Laredo, Texas, to protest Trump. “I’m praying for all of his intentions. What he’s talking about and what he’s going to be doing, I hope they go through.”

When Trump announced his presidential candidacy in June, he said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

The comments brought strong reactions from the Latino community.

“It’s scary, not just what he says, but in terms of people supporting that,” reacted Albuquerque, N.M., resident Teresa Guevara.

However, even at the time, there were dissenting opinions from the Latino community.

“Finally somebody got up there and said what needed to be said,” Edward Morfin told the Los Angeles Times.“He said what everybody’s thinking but is afraid to say out loud.”

At the scene of Trump’s border visit Thursday, Megyn Kelly reported that the CNN reporter had to double-check Palacios’ ethnicity to make sure she was a Mexican-American. She reported that the CNN reporter than asked Palacios if she was insulted by Trump’s assertion that many undocumented Mexicans are rapists and killers.

“No, sir, not at all,” Palacios said. “He’s talking just about the truth.”

I Will Not Apologize For Being Born White In America !

It truly makes me sad that in the 21st century race relations in the United States of America are at their lowest point since the end of the Civil War. What is even more troubling, is that it should not be like this . America is not perfect, but as a nation we have never stopped trying to live up to the ideals of our forefathers that were set down over 200 years ago. Americans are not quitters, if we are knocked down, we get right back up and continue to keep striving to be a better nation. A nation that has set the standard of excellence and is a shining beacon of hope to all others who live under tyranny and oppression.

Sadly, there are those that want us to believe that we are NOT special, that we are not a good and moral people. Sadly, the man chosen by his country to lead us into a new and golden age, a man of color who was supposed to bring all people together, is nothing more than a small minded, greedy and petty individual. Barack Obama was supposed to be “the one” to heal all of our wounds and lead us into the light. Sadly, Barack Obama is dragging us down into the mud. He is not a moral man and he possesses no qualities that make him able to do anything more than be a garbage collector. He, of all men is living proof that any man, regardless of the color of his skin, can rise to the greatest heights in our nation. Yet he is the very personification of all that is wrong and continuously pretends to be a victim and convince others that they too are victims of racial hatred.

His election as president of the United States of America is proof of the exact opposite. Yet he feels that he has to change everything about the United States…why ? What was so wrong with this nation that compels him to attempt to transform America into a third world, communist banana republic ? One can only surmise by his actions, that deep down in his heart he actually has nothing but hatred and contempt for the nation and people that made him the most powerful man on earth.

During the last six years he has stoked the fires of racial hatred to such a point, that Americans are more distrustful of each other than they have ever been, more so than even during the Civil War. One would almost believe, that he is actually trying to antagonize the American people into tearing each other’s throats out. Black against white, man against woman, poor against rich and straight against gay. He has spent the last six years creating such mistrust and hatred, one would almost believe that by his actions he cannot stand this country or what it stands for.

Now, during the 21st century I am supposed to feel shame because of the color of my own skin, that I have been a recipient of some imaginary “privilege” just because I’m “white” ? And there are those among us, who have such low self-esteem that they actually believe this line of bullsh*t ! They are even teaching our children that they and all of their family, whether they know it or not, have been oppressive towards people of color and they should feel guilty for something that none of them have ever done ?!?

WHAT A CROCK !

I have a newsflash for all of those black people who believe they’re a “victim”. The Civil War ended in 1865, 150 years ago. The Union prevailed and slavery was abolished. Not one single black person today was alive when it happened. The statute of limitations has run-out and nobody “owes” you a damn thing ! You can be anything you want to be…even president of the United States. So knock-off with trying to put a guilt trip on the rest of us, because we weren’t there either and did not cause you any offense.

Instead of pretending to be a victim, try acting like an adult and take responsibility for your own actions. Instead of complaining about how sh*tty your life is, be an adult and make your life better, you have that power. And quit listening to hate mongers who only want to make a buck off of you, they’re NOT your friends just because their skin color is the same as yours. Send bastards like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and Barack Obama packing, because believe it or not, the only way for them to make a living is for you to be miserable.

Remember this, we are all members of the same race…..the HUMAN RACE !

Illegal Immigrants Run Ashore, Crash Miami Beach Photo Shoot (Video)

BY CAROLINE MAY

A group of illegal immigrants crashed a morning Miami Beach photo shoot earlier this month — inadvertently photobombing a model as they ran ashore from their boat and on to the beach.

Ekaterina Juskowski captured video of the moment, filming her model friend at 6 am on July 10, according to the New Times Broward-Palm Beach.

When Juskowski saw the illegal immigrants in the background of her shot she turned off the video but then turned it back on to capture about eight men jumping out of their boat and sprinting up the beach.

U.S. Border Patrol told the Times that the incident is under investigation.

“That’s a testament to how confident these organizations are — what we call transnational criminal organizations — who smuggle criminals and narcotics right onto the beach.” CBP spokesman Frank Miller said to the outlet.

“There has been an increase in known maritime smuggling in Florida — from Key West all along the Florida coast — from fiscal year 2014 to now,” he added.

According to CBP’s figures, in fiscal year 2014 there were 2,034 illegal immigrants apprehended by the Miami Sector. FY 2014 also saw 3,942 coastal boarder apprehensions.

The Coast Guard’s apprehension figures for FY 2014 were 3,587. Most of those individuals apprehended were from Cuba (2,111), Haiti (1,103), the Dominican Republic (293), Mexico (48) and another 32 were from “other” countries.

Miller told the Times that Florida’s large coastline means that even with the help of the Coast Guard and other law enforcement agencies “it’s difficult to get a solid level of situational awareness on whats coming in.”

GOP Leaders Are Driving Their Base Into The Arms Of Donald Trump

BY SCOTT GREER

Remember that picture of Chris Matthews looking upset at the announcement of a Republican sweep in the midterm elections?

There he was — arms crossed, frowning intensely — looking at the results like a man who just lost a lot of money at a game of cards.

It was gleefully shared around by Republicans and conservatives rejoicing in the fact that Congress was now back in the hands of the GOP, with the hope that President Obama’s agenda would finally be put in reverse.

If only Matthews and those same Republicans could see what would happen in the GOP-controlled Senate on July 26.

The MSNBC host’s frown would’ve turned into an ear-to-ear grin. All those optimistic conservatives would’ve shed a few tears at the thought of the brutal disappointment that awaited them this congressional term.

On Sunday, Sen. Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders kneecapped conservative amendments to a highway bill proposed by conservatives including Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. This action protected funding for Planned Parenthood, killed legislation targeting sanctuary cities and resuscitated the Export-Import Bank. (RELATED: McConnell Angers Conservatives By Blocking Defunding Planned Parenthood, Kate’s Law)

Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities and the Export-Import Bank are anathema to grassroots conservatives. Two of the measures — on Planned Parenthood and sanctuary stories — had outrageous national stories that provided the needed impetus for action.

Instead, the future of Planned Parenthood’s half-billion-a-year funding, sanctuary cities and the Ex-Im bank were all saved from the jaws of defeat by Republican leaders.
It would be easy to say this result was shocking. But it’s not. This latest incident is par the course from the Republican masters of Congress. But it was.

Up until to Election Day, these GOP chieftains promised to bring sweeping change to D.C. and duke it out with Obama.

They have done everything but what they promised to do.

On executive amnesty, they rolled over and played dead.

On Obamacare, they put up half-a-fight before giving it more funding.

On abortion, they previously allowed a few moderate members to derail popular legislation on the eve of January’s March for Life.

The only thing Republican leaders have shown any muscle in trying to get through is Trade Promotion Authority — a measure requested by Obama to give him more power and less congressional oversight.

Naturally, Trade Promotion Authority is despised by the base and could hurt the GOP in the upcoming election season. (RELATED: The GOP’s Foolish Embrace Of Obama’s Trade Deal)

To call Republican leaders useless would imply that they are, in fact, doing nothing on behalf of their core constituency. It’s worse than that. Republican leaders seem to doing their most to fight against their own base.

And it’s not like powerful GOP figures don’t publicly air their contempt for the people who keep them in office. John McCain called all the people who showed up to hear Donald Trump speak in Arizona “crazies” — even though those same people narrowly saved him from an electoral upset in 2010 after the senator acted like a border warrior in the primary race.

It’s not much of a surprise, then, that rank-and-file Republican lawmakers now have a historically-low favorability rating among voters in their own party.

Anyone wondering why Donald Trump keeps surging in polls in spite of all the establishment hand-wringing can stop wondering.

Congressional Republican leaders have no one to blame but themselves for the unhappiness of conservative voters. What’s the point in voting Republican if the party is going to do nothing it promised when it attains power?

This question is rarely posed to Democrats, who always seem intent on pushing their agenda and working for their interest groups. It would be one thing if Republicans were alienating conservative voters to uphold principles, but that’s certainly not the case.

There’s an argument to make that the Republican Party simply exists to perpetuate the personal prestige and power of its leaders rather than to promote the principles and interests of its followers.

That’s why nearly a third of Republican voters are choosing a reality-TV star with a treasure trove of insults over veteran politicians this election cycle.

A positive result of this tumult could be the party getting a clue and adopting a firmer posture and an agenda more in tune with its “Silent Majority.”

However, the GOP could very well double-down on its current path and pave the way for even more disappointments and failures in the future.

The rising level of alienation in the party is due to a majority of the base feeling that it is being taken for granted. The GOP expects conservatives to show up Election Day, no matter which policies or candidates are on the ballot — as long as they come with the elephant brand.

Republican lawmakers seem more interested in taking stances on issues like immigration, trade and corporate welfare which are very much out of line with their most reliable voters. At the same time, they expect the core constituency will still vote Red when it comes down to a choice between a Republican and a Democrat.

But the growing discontent and the embrace of Trump should send a clear signal to Republican upper echelons that this demographic is tired of its low priority and lack of respect.

They want their voices heard and their issues addressed.

*(Are you McSurprised?)* The consequences of the $15 minimum wage: McDonald’s to add 2000 self-service kiosks in 2015

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 11.02.55 AM

BY JOHN BRODGIAN

Mind you, this was the plan in the end of 2014. I can only imagine that the 2,000 locations with self serve kiosks will double by the end of this year…

The self-service stations, which McDonald’s has billed as “Create Your Taste,” enable customers to choose from a selection of buns, toppings and sauces on tablet-like touchscreens, USA Today reports.

McDonald’s franchisee Bob Nibeel said the program would appeal to increasingly choosy and tech savvy millennials.

“Most millenials would rather deal with a computer, iPad, iPhone than actually have interactions with another human being,” Nibeel said in a video interview with USA Today.

The irony here is that it’s those same millenials pushing for a $15 minimum wage for fast food workers. Maybe this is why?
