Ferguson Curfew Cancelled As National Guard Arrives; Holder Demands To "Remove The Damn Tanks"

Tyler Durden's picture


The Missouri Governor Jay Nixon gave "no heads up" to the White House before deploying The National Guard and has now made another abrupt decision as The National Guard closes in on Ferguson:


We presume when there are military tanks rolling through the streets of a town, there is no need for the actual implementation of a curfew... This once again rubs the administration's nose in it as AG Holder's comments from last week hang in the air: "get those damned tanks out of there."

The neighborhood has been under a midnight-to-5 a.m. curfew the past two days, after Nixon declared a state of emergency. That has now changed...

As NBC News reports,

Authorities on Monday lifted the overnight curfew for Ferguson, Missouri, after two nights.


The announcement came from Gov. Jay Nixon, who earlier in the day ordered the National Guard to the St. Louis suburb after a week of clashes between police and protesters over the police shooting death of an unarmed black teenager.


Nixon said that the National Guard would have a limited mission and that overall command would still be the responsibility of the Highway Patrol, which took over security in Ferguson on Thursday.


The National Guard, under the command of Brig. Gen. Gregory Mason, will “provide protection, and ensure the safety of our Unified Command Center, which was the target last night of a coordinated attack,” Nixon said.


Nixon said that law enforcement officers were the target of gunfire on Sunday. The violence also included firebombs, looting and “a coordinated attempt to overrun the unified Command Center,” Nixon said.


And as WSJ reports, locals and Feds are not in agreement...

Mr. Holder, the attorney general, rewrote a statement about Ferguson he was planning to issue to emphasize he expected local authorities "to complete a thorough, fair investigation in their own right,'' even though the FBI had opened its own case into whether Mr. Brown's civil rights had been violated, a law-enforcement official said.


The two sides also clashed later in the week over the Ferguson Police Department's plan to release the surveillance tape of the convenience-store robbery. Lawyers in the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division objected, saying it would anger the community and intensify protests by those who felt it was an attack on Mr. Brown's reputation rather than an evenhanded disclosure of information, law-enforcement officials said. 


The police department decided to release the video Friday, over the continued objections of federal officials. Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said last week the move came in response to numerous media freedom-of-information requests.


Federal, state, and local authorities also have disagreed publicly over the tactics and equipment deployed to deal with protests.



"Tell them to remove the damn tanks," Mr. Holder told his deputies on Thursday, according to a law-enforcement official, referring to heavily armored vehicles the local police had used. That day there were discussions among local officials about how to scale back the armed presence, officials said.

We are sure this, too, will end very well: for the happy ending tune in tonight sometime after sundown.

Now that the Black Racists have shown up to make money off their racist hate-speech, it's time to consider Black Racism in America today, of whom Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Eric Holder are the biggest proponents.

There is a certain segment of the Black community that is nothing but a bunch of David Dukes wearing blackface. Anyone who doesn't believe this segment of Blacks are among America's largest and most virulent group of racists, needs only spend a few minutes reading their hate-speech.

Judging by the content of their character, Dr. King is weeping to think how they've turned his "I have a Dream" speech into such a sick nightmare.

So you want to discuss Blacks getting killed by Whites? First, when are you shutting down the Killing Fields of endless Blacks killing Blacks in DC, Chicago, NYC, Detroit, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, East St. Louis . . . ? Oh, can't bring peace to your own neighborhoods?

Or how about even coming out with rallies against "Polar Bear Hunting" - the Black Racist event that you (I'm speaking to Eric Holder in particular) can't seem to admit is Black Racism at its most despicable and violent?

Or how about shutting down the 70% illegitimacy rate of Blacks? Or the fact that more Black babies are aborted than born in NYC?

Care to opine on why Black children graduate from high school and can't read or write cursive? Or tell time on an analog clock - even though they are taught by Blacks - or are we supposed to believe in your Black Racist insanity that the remaining White teachers undo the teaching of the Black teachers?

Maybe you can bounce around some thoughts about why Blacks allow gangsta rappers to be role models - with their misogyny, drug addictions, relentless violence, irresponsible sex lives, and bling-based evaluation of personal worth?

When will you admit that your Black Racism is a scam to excuse the Black community's Death Spiral at the hands of your fellow Black Racists?

How about some discourse on the way Blacks sold Blacks to Arabs - to this very day? Tell us about your rallies to shut down the present-day African slave trade.

And don't forget that after thousands of years of slavery by Blacks - as well as every other race on Earth - that it was Whites who outlawed - and enforced - the criminalization of slavery - which is still practiced by African Blacks.

And who can be a really Black, Black Racist without forgetting all about the hundreds of thousands of Whites who died to free Blacks from slavery in America. Oh that's right - it's all the White's fault that slavery existed in America - despite the fact that the first slaveholder in America was Black - over a third of slaves were owned by Blacks - and the largest slaveholder at the time of the Civil War was Black.

Darn those Inconvenient Truths!

Frankly, you are a disgusting group of nothing better than a Black Ku Klux Klan. Those of us who got our heads wacked by the cops in the Freedom Marchs didn't do that so that the White Citizens' Council could be replaced with the Black Racist Hate-Speech Club. (By the way, Al - Eric - Oprah - Jerimiah - Michelle - Barack, care to share how many marches you got beat up in to win these freedoms from apartheid?)

I expect to read about how being White I have no place commenting about anything to do with the Black community - it's a Black thing and all that Black Racist trash.

OK, so shut up about Whites. You're not White so you are as equally incapable of discussing White culture as Whites are incapable of discussing Black culture. Let's see how your total lack of integrity sits with your Black Racist standards being applied to your own Black Racist hate-speech.

I for one, will be no more intimidated by a bunch of Black Racist bullies than I was of the White racists. You are big-mouthed cowards who don't have the sense to come in out of the rain.

If Oprah is correct, and racism will only die when the racists die - I look forward to your demise very soon. Hades will have new fuel for the fire, and the Earth will be a safer, cleaner, more loving place without you.

I have issues with both sides: I disagree with the police becoming a military state, and I also disagree with rioting, random shooting and burning. I have no problem with the police shooting those that refuse to stop rioting uncontrollably and causing death, injury and property damage. I also have no problem with peaceful demonstrations to make a point. Shooting an "unarmed thief" may have been justified for all I know; I wasn't there to see it.

An article about verbal comments accidentally caught on a video that was in fonzannoon's comment in a ZH article yesterday could be very damning and justify the shooting by the police, if true.

One thing I do know is the current rioting will seem like nothing when the officer(s) involved are aquitted of all charges.

- Justifiable Looting by Fed & Federal Government & TBTF Banks
- Justifiable Looting by Salary & Compensation by Police at many levels where they make a butt load of money but citizens AVG Wages have been shrinking since like 1980
- Justifiable Privatization of War, DoD Functions, Military Functions, Military Passenger Air Flights, Military Cargo Merchant Marine Shipping
- Justifiable NSA, FBI, CIA, Military Spying
- Justifiable Exponential Increases in MIC Budgets now to $1 Trillion Dollars (picking the winners who are in love with Fascism!!!)
- Justifiable Waivers in Corporate Taxes while commerce actually does the most damage to our ports, highways, & Bridges
- Justifiable Financial Conflict of Interest by US Congress
- Justifiable Killing off of US Banks as fewer and fewer survive the Wall Street Monopoly
- Justifiable Usury by Lenders & Creditors in the Face of World Historical Low Interest Rates for Primary Dealers
- Justifiable World Record Financing & Lobbying of US Congress & Presidential Elections (Call it world Record RICO Violations!!)

Yes, you certainly opened this up a little more! How is it the citizens can allow what you mentioned (and more) to happen? No rioting, no demand for justice, no anything! Ironic, isn't it? Pathetic, isn't it? Is that the main reason for the welfare state: as long as everyone receives their dole check, they're not going to bite the hand that feeds them?

I'm thankful I'm old with one foot in the grave because I won't have to put up with crap much longer. If I were young and healthy, I'd be leading the revolution to bring back the Constitution, along with equality and justice for all.

The whole plan of Bail-ins following Bailouts... in a Country were individual bankruptcy is now not really possible even in the face of Exponential Health Care costs... and Identity Theft.

Street crime & Home Break-Ins is less of a risk & threat to our Well Being. Still we want the feeling of security for our young family members and elderly. Riots probably will raise costs for insurance after all too.

That is the problem with capitalism (growth), it is unsustainable!

We have lots of empty real estate in DC Metro area, but they still build. Probably in your area, it’s worse than here. But we will catch up to you, eventually.

Unfortunately, NO one wants to face it.

That’s one of ‘many’ reasons why the US government, financial institutions, and its citizens (us) are running many Ponzi schemes.

Did you really believe that the house Ponzi scheme would last?

Do you really believe all these college graduates are better prepared to face collapse by having degrees?

Do you really believe that we can build when there is NO demand? Did you see all the Chinese Empty real estate?

Right now we are producing about 80 million barrels of oil.

What do you think will happen when that goes down to 60 million barrels?

US People are so simplistic, they prefer lazy cognitive activity like "our Team Vs Your Team"

That is the approach to Change by Government & Police

- One side has Military Training, Military Equipment, Police Tactics, State of the Art Communications devices and Safety Gear
- The other side is just Citizens asking for Change

But of course their will be Outsiders trying to manipulate
- Black Panthers & Islamic Usurpers
- Government Agents Provocateurs
- Media following Marching Orders, Publishing Propaganda & Spin

But Mostly it is the same "Dumb" Nation of the Vietnam Era

- Our Team is going to Win, since this is our Job, This is what we are here to do
- No Responsibility in Ferguson Mayor, South County Government, Governor Nixon (Surreal Right?)
- From Obama, Holder on down, no one likes Change or Divergence from their Planned Agendas, and Lobbyist Based Schemes (After all they have no Permission from above)

I agree that it will be going on a while and that it's not going to end well, not matter the outcome. At this point, it appears to be a lose-lose situation. Either the cop is in the wrong (the 'justice' won't be enough to satisfy) or they find that there was no wrong doing on the part of the cop (obviously shit would hit the fan for this scenario). Just make sure you don't keep too close of an eye... I think there are other things afoot in the world, no?

Not sure extended Activism and Street Protests would work if the US Jobs Environment was more like Scandinavia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Brazil, Australia (maybe I am wrong on a few of these and know many hate the taxes & Cost of living in many)

But... would Protesters keep going if they had jobs that even just paid like $11 an Hour with Full Time Schedule?

I don't know about you, but I'm not too keen on a replay of our wars of religion of the past, especially intra muros. Don't forget in Europe people receive even more government goodies than in the US. You do not have to be a genius to figure out what will happen if those entitlements can no longer be guaranteed.

You lost me at "elaborate hoax".

Has anyone noticed there are no simple hoaxes anymore? You know why that is? Do you know why all the hoaxes now need like 8 levels of gearing just to get off the ground? Well I happen to wonder about that.

A short story. They used to think the planets, stars and sun all went around the Earth. It was simply obvious. However they also thought the motions were driven by internal laws rather than (oh say) the thoughts of the angels, so they tried to come up with equations and mechanical models that matched observations. No seriously this really happened. Well as they worked on it the mechanisms became increasingly complex to match better celestial observations. Eventually the mechanical models didn't work at all, not even nearly, but rather than abandon the geo-centric model in favor of something else all kinds of exceptions had to be thought up, just really weird shit. Wheels within wheels, within more wheels, within still larger wheels, all moving together each inside the other. It was nuts but they had to keep trying, you see. Then Copernicus came along and pointed out that if you can only describe your model of the universe using increasingly baroque and tortured explanations and unworkable physical models and machines, then maybe you should step back and consider the other possibility being that your initial assumptions were simply completely fucked up. He then showed that if you placed the Sun at the center of the solar system, and had the planets (including Earth) all move in orbits around it, you not only end up with an accurate predictive model of the universe you also strip out all the 8 levels of gearing that were needed to make your old model work. And since God likes to keep things simple, that must be the answer. He was so afraid of his model of celectial mechanics (ie, the reaction of the church) he would only allow it to be published after is death.

And that's why you will always lose me at "elaborate hoax".

That shit don't do elaborate.
