Tyler Durden's picture

In a few moments, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will speak at 4:00 p.m. ET. about the turmoil in Ferguson. As NBC reports, Nixon canceled a planned visit to the state fair and said he would visit the St. Louis suburbs Thursday after a fourth night of civil unrest over the police killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. Nixon said in an earlier statement that the worsening situation in Ferguson was “deeply troubling.”

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming.....4 dead in Moe

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Who the fuck downvoted "Ohio?"

We are apparently doomed to repeat history - again.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

An event like this will tip it over.  We know it.  They know it.

What came first the chicken or the egg? It's like asking what came first, the rich white liberal or the thug inner city lawless blacks, or what came first, the thug inner city lawless blacks or the natural liberal response, a militarized police force to protect them from the thug inner city lawless blacks.

Actually it is so complicated economically that it would take a long analysis to see how it progressed linearly.

Short Version: Blacks got some big advances in government employment rights in the 1960-1980... maybe mostly in Military & Federal Government. Civil Rights mostly helped women getting rights.

So after Factory jobs went overseas with American Capital there were many minorities that had moved to new communities for factory work... who were left in a lurch.

President Obama was the great Hope for many Minorities who needed better jobs and wanted a chance. But President Obama either abused his mandate or turned out to side with military, Wars, Drones, Rendition, and Torture. That is why he won't get impeachment.

Capitalism is about profit we all know. But it is also about controlling Legislators, Keeping the Lobby, Using Money as power to get support of Regulators, universities, and the Labor Market. It means getting lower taxes on the wealth and using resources overseas. Capitalism is not about taking care of people.

President Obama is a Capitalist who supports War, and who supports crazy progressive, liberal, or socialist ideas on the Side... such as Open Borders which the Republicans also support, and Corporate Subsidies and FISCAL Spending which the Republicans also support.

Poor Americans came first, then their hope let them down just like Al Sharpton, Louis Farakan, Jessie Jackson, and Jackson's Son. The owner of the Capital always wins - it is just that he tries to confuse people about his political ideology. Thus always a Tyrant.

Teach them to Fish, and they will forever be thankful.

The Drudge Report has a banner link to FOP Director Pasco, where he says he sees nothing wrong in what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri. This guy should be tested for drugs. Luckily, thanks to his comments against Obama, he should expect multiple audits from the IRS in the years ahead. What a mope!

----

The executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police criticized President Obama Thursday for his remarks about law enforcement in Ferguson, Mo. "I would contend that discussing police tactics from Martha's Vineyard is not helpful to ultimately calming the situation," director Jim Pasco said in an interview with The Hill. "I think what he has to do as president and as a constitutional lawyer is remember that there is a process in the United States and the process is being followed, for good or for ill, by the police and by the county and by the city and by the prosecutors’ office," Pasco added. . . . Pasco said both police and members of the public are entitled to due process but said he is not convinced police have used excessive force in Ferguson. "I'm not there, and neither is the president," Pasco said. "That is why we have due process in the United States. And this will all be sorted out over time. But right now, I haven't seen anything from afar — and maybe the president has — that would lead me to believe the police are doing anything except to restore order."

Fuck your "hood".  

I'd rather live among the pasty white boys.

For all I care, we could could drop neutron bombs on the many hoods in the USA. 

They are a blight. Deadwood. They're dragging down the nation.

You got that right. At this morning's news conference in Ferguson, Nixon was spouting off about the need to be open and transparent to regain the trust of the people there. Then this afternoon when a British reporter asked twice who was responsible for the police's paramilitary actions last night, he replied each time "That's in the past" when it happened just last effing night. Unbelievable slime!

NY post and twitter are reporting he's taking the county cops (the ones that were gassing reporters) out of the enforcement detail.

Damn right you take them out of enforcement detail. You stick them behind a desk and only give them a 5% raise and pension increase. If we don't start teaching these guys a lesson this will just get worse and worse.

5%? Fuck that noise, they deserve to go year with nothing. 

All 5% does is tell them "next time make sure it doesn't get recorded"

how about we split the difference and go with 2.5%. for the economy.

"NY post and twitter are reporting he's taking the county cops (the ones that were gassing reporters) out of the enforcement detail."

Setting further precedent that the county sheriff can be superseded at will

"The Sheriff is the lawful Chief Executive Officer and highest Peace Officer of the entire County in which he or she was elected. Unlike the State Police and Municipal Police, the Sheriff reports directly to the Citizens of the County. In today’s terms, the Sheriff is the “Chief Law Enforcement Officer” (CELO) of the County. The duties, responsibilities and authorities of the County Sheriff (a constitutional officer) are, at a minimum, the same as they were when the State Constitution was originally written. The duties, responsibilities and/or authorities of the Sheriff cannot be diminished by those in the legislature or the courts of the State or of the County. Only the Citizens of this Commonwealth, by a constitutional amendment (that is lawfully done) can diminish the duties, responsibilities and/or authorities of the County Sheriff.  These facts, and many more, were true and recognized in Pennsylvania long before it became a State on September 28, 1776 and lawfully remain true today."

It's obvious that the locals are thugs unworthy of badges. Their antics with the press guarantees a rethinking of just what power they will be allowed to have after this affair.

 

From what I'm seen, the local cops and SLP are nothing but bullies who do what they do because the know they will be aided and abbeted by the DA's office to get them off the criminal charges hook. The number of serial felonies they've commited is tremndous.

 

What is needed is a state constitutional admendment taking the investigation of cops and charging them with crimes out of the hands of the cops themselves, and the DAs. Neither can be trusted to be honest.

 

As for the locals, I expect them to be replaced with the NG, and militarized State Police (Troopers).

 

Martial Law by any other name . . .

Investigation, really, how long should it take to see that an unarmed man at least 20 feet from militarized police is shot in the back.  If it were anyone else who is not cop would be in jail and wait for a day in court.  This is BS and is happening all over the country.  The cops and all others in the force are criminal for not acting NOW.  It appears to go deeper and really it is anyone in the government criminal cabal.

The only reason the "investigation" will take so long ( I have heard weeks or months) is that they are trying to figure out how to blame the victim and the the cop go.

Eric Holder has sent a crew to investigate.  You know how that went down in the Zimmerman story.

Use the word  "folks" as much as possible.

 

Police shot some folks

Police gassed some folks

Some folks looted some stores

Some folks burned down a few C-stores

Some folks protested

Let's face it .gov and the elite want Whites replaced in this country. Just by changing the immigration law in 1965 they guaranteed an eventual disappearance of the White race from the US.

The hordes of ILLEGAL immigrants attending schools, getting in-state tuition, getting SCHOLARSHIPS that are denied to White students, the Affirmative Action, the government set-asides in contracts ONLY for those who are of color or NON-GENTILE. Zuckerberg giving tons of money to republicans who SELL US OUT Immediately. Soros funding immigratin, the Koch brothers funding black colleges and IMMIGRATION, the VISA system to replace white workers with Asian and other employees, of course the WHITE employee must TRAIN his replacement if he wants severance pay.

This was by DESIGN, not by chance.
And who cares about US? NOBODY, not even our fellow whites, but that better change FAST.

Read her harrowing story and then realize this is the RULE not the exception. WHITE MEN AND WOMEN WTFU you are TARGETED for extinction and YOU fund your very demise by paying taxes to your EXECUTIONERS, the same ones who BUTCHERED the Czar and his family.
The LITERAL descendants of those BUTCHERS now are Big City Mayors who were White House Chiefs of Staff, they are Senators, Fed Big Shots, Wall Street helmsmen, movie producers, you get the idea? And they RUN our government.

Another tech-worker, Diane Drozdowski, was forced out of her job at American Express in Phoenix, AZ. After her manager used "bully tactics and psychological warfare" to try to get her to quit, resulting in a mental breakdown, she was replaced by two Indian workers based in India. American Express flew these Indian workers to Phoenix and forced her to train them, upon threat of losing her severance pay.
