World War III and Civil War in America Unfolding Before Our Very Eyes

by Douglas J. Hagmann on Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

The stages are being set and the actors are being cast in their respective roles for two separate yet closely related plays opening in the global and domestic playhouses of pandemonium. From within the United States, racial and socio-economic tensions are growing against the backdrop of the militarization of our police forces. Bullets, body bags, detention centers and depictions of draconian measures against the American people are just a few of the props that have been moved to center stage in the American theater, where a captive audience anxiously awaits the opening narration and introductory scene that will guide the plot forward.

As front row seat spectators of these dual plays, many can be heard asking in hushed tones and murmurs, “What will be the spark that ignites the dry tinder strewn about the stage of our Republic? The world?”

Amid the stage preparations, the stifled conversation of the audience offers many possibilities, including an orchestrated economic collapse, racial tensions and race baiting, growing ideological differences that have been exacerbated by covert means, identifiable to those with spiritual discernment, or to those having the eyes to see and ears to hear.

Watchmen have been ringing the alarm bells for years and decades, only to be scoffed at and ridiculed by those working behind the scenes. What has been done by design, following the script written by the playwright of pandemonium, has too often been ascribed to incompetence.

For those with ears to hear and a desire to know the positions of those on the domestic and global stages, tune in tonight for a special Hagmann & Hagmann Report broadcast. Steve Quayle, one of the first watchmen to sound the alarms on a national and international scale will be the sole guest as he details the coming acts of plays unfolding before us.

Racism Can Be White or Black

by Alan Caruba on Monday, November 24th, 2014

This is article 166 of 166 in the topic Racism
By Alan Caruba
On Monday, Nov 17, the Governor of Missouri activated its National Guard “to support law enforcement during any period of unrest that might occur following the grand jury’s decision concerning the investigation into the death of Michael Brown.” He declared a state of emergency.
A grand jury verdict that is likely to exonerate officer Darren Wilson is assumed to require significant law enforcement because in August we witnessed the initial weeks of rioting, looting and arson in what has been described by police authorities as an organized effort.
When the subject of racism occurs, it is always in terms of white racism and rarely, if ever, discussed in terms of black racism.
However, racism is a two-way street and while the ill treatment African-Americans encountered as slaves and for a century thereafter before the Civil Rights Act in 1964 is surely cause for resentment the fact remains that black Americans have had fifty years, two generations, of opportunity and equality intended to redress the past.
What white Americans find it difficult to understand is why there are protests at this point. Don’t the lives of blacks who have been killed, as often as not by other blacks, have value too?
Why doesn’t the fact that the nation has a black President, a black Attorney General, a black Supreme Court justice, blacks in Congress, and ample evidence of the progress the black community has made since the 1964 Civil Rights Act was passed seem to make any difference?
The events in Ferguson are well known by now. Video confirmed that Michael Brown stole some cigarillos at the Ferguson Market and Liquors on August 9th and when one of the staff protested, he was threatened in a menacing manner by Brown, a very large young man.
The theft was swiftly reported to the police with a description that fit Brown. Not long after, Officer Wilson, driving alone, spoke to Brown and a companion, telling them to move away from the center of West Florissant Avenue. At that point Brown began to scuffle with Wilson and forensic evidence showed that Wilson’s gun was fired twice in the police car during the struggle. Brown allegedly punched him repeatedly, leaving a swelling on his face. He attacked a police officer.
Wilson went after Brown to arrest him and when Brown turned on him he was shot six times. Reportedly, six black witnesses to the incident confirmed Officer Wilson’s account. The autopsy is said to have showed evidence of marijuana in Brown’s system. Brown was not armed, but his size and the assault on Officer Wilson constituted a threat to Wilson’s life.
What followed were weeks of demonstrations that quickly escalated in force, in arson and looting in addition to the confrontations between the protesters and the police. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon deployed the National Guard to help quell the disturbances. In October the Ferguson Police Department handed over responsibility to the county police department which is larger and better equipped. At this point, all of the police who were called upon had protective gear and an arsenal of means to quell a riot.
Why did the shooting evoke such a reaction? Why did those involved in the demonstrations assume it was more than a white cop versus black suspect situation?

The War on Police, Revisited

by Cliff Kincaid on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

This is article 51 of 53 in the topic Police/Fire

The justified police killing of black thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was used by the media to accuse the police of being “militarized” when they brought out the heavy equipment to cope with rioters. At the same time, Brown was portrayed as an innocent black man shot with his hands up. All of this was false, and it has now been proven to be false.

Anti-police protesters, joined by outside agitators, some of them communists, were said by CNN and other media to be opposed to racist “police violence” against black people. That was the story we were told.

Now, The New York Times has disclosed the evidence presented to a grand jury in the case. Police Officer Darren Wilson was attacked by Brown—after Brown robbed a convenience store—and the officer fired in self-defense.

This conclusion, reported by the Times in an October 17 story, should not come as a surprise. We’ve known that the shooting followed Brown’s robbery of a local convenience store, where he pushed the store manager around. In addition, the police said from the beginning that Wilson fired at Brown inside the police car, showing the officer was attacked there.

The idea of Brown throwing up his hands in a surrender pose has been shown to be utterly false.

The Times reported, “The officials briefed on the case said the forensic evidence gathered in the car lent credence to Officer Wilson’s version of events. According to his account, he was trying to leave his vehicle when Mr. Brown pushed him back in. Once inside the S.U.V., the two began to fight, Officer Wilson told investigators, and he removed his gun from the holster on his right hip.”

In a follow-up, The Washington Post confirmed the account, saying, “Officials who spoke to The Washington Post on Saturday said the forensic evidence supports Wilson’s account that a scuffle occurred at the police vehicle, that Wilson feared for his life and that Brown went for, or lunged for, his gun.”

The Post added:

From the earliest days police have said that Brown scuffled with Wilson and that a shot was fired in the vehicle.

In those first police accounts, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said that Brown ‘allegedly pushed’ Wilson back into the car after Wilson tried to open the door. Brown, police said, then ‘physically assaulted’ Wilson and went for the gun. Wilson fired inside the vehicle, they said. Wilson then got out and killed Brown, Belmar said. Police said Wilson feared for his life because Brown charged him on the sidewalk.

In other words, the police have been telling the truth all along. And this is now admitted by officials familiar with Attorney General Eric Holder’s effort to bring trumped-up charges against Wilson for murder. The forensic evidence makes Holder’s efforts impossible.

The Post said that some “protest organizers” were “unmoved by the forensic details…”

These “protest organizers” are racial agitators and communists. Why doesn’t the Congress investigate them?

Instead, as we have reported, Senators Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Rand Paul (R-KY) held a hearing to complain about the “militarization” of the police, with Paul received sympathetic media attention for his “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” display, one similar to the protesters egged on by the racial agitators.

My newest piece at Fox News: "The truth about young black men and police shootings"

by John Lott on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

This is article 165 of 166 in the topic Racism
My newest piece at Fox News starts this way:

Tensions are still high in Ferguson, Mo., after the Aug. 8 police shooting of Michael Brown. On Friday, it was reported forensics showed Brown’s blood was on both the inside of police officer Darren Wilson’s car as well as Wilson’s gun. The gun had also been fired twice within the car. This evidence hardly squares with early witness accounts that Brown was shot with his hands in the air while he was surrendering.

With forensic evidence finally coming in, Officer Wilson’s shooting Brown is looking as if it were justifiable self-defense.  But that hasn’t stopped people from making it a racial issue.

Over the weekend, the New York Times noted some black leaders, such as Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, D-Maryland, “often invoke voting rights and the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed black man shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., as a way to mobilize black voters.”

About a week ago journalists at ProPublica and Slate further fueled the anger many blacks felt about the shooting. Slate’s headline read: “Black Teens Vastly More Likely to Be Killed by Police Than Whites Even After Adjusting for Crime Rates.”

The incendiary finding got massive uncritical news coverage . . . .

The Media Taboo: Reds Mobilize for Democrats

by Cliff Kincaid on Thursday, October 16th, 2014

This is article 62 of 63 in the topic Communism

The Washington Post headline said the convoluted answer constituted “40 painful seconds of Alison Lundergan Grimes refusing to say whether she voted for President Obama.” The Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate evaded direct questions from a newspaper’s editorial board about whether she had voted for Obama. It was truly an embarrassment. NBC’s Chuck Todd basically said she’s finished as a candidate.

But while Lundergan Grimes is avoiding the issue, and Obama is not even on the ballot this year, the Communist Party is openly organizing against the Republican Party in order to strengthen Obama’s ability to carry out his Marxist agenda in his final two years in office.

With elections just a month away, the Communists have made it plain, once again, that they favor Democrats over Republicans.

While Lundergan Grimes’s ridiculous evasions are getting some media attention, the nature of Obama’s “progressive” base will get glossed over because it’s not politically correct to talk about communists involved in the political process. That’s considered McCarthyism.

Communist support for Obama is definitely a taboo subject for the press.

Although the CPUSA is not necessarily the preeminent communist organization on the U.S. political scene these days, it still maintains links to the Russian Communist Party and is able to organize and deploy activists in some critical election contests, such as in North Carolina and Florida.

On the occasion of the CPUSA’s 30th party convention in June in Chicago, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation sent a “Dear Comrades” letter of greetings, seeking to “further strengthen these ties on the basis of the principles of proletarian internationalism.”

In 2012, the Communist Party had said that re-electing Obama was “absolutely essential.” Now it’s afraid of Republicans undermining his Marxist agenda by making gains in the November elections.

“Defeating the extreme right wing in this election comes down to voter turnout,” says Communist Party operative Joelle Fishman. “This huge fight to get out the vote can result in a stronger movement going forward.” Fishman warns of “Republican sabotage” against Obama, Republicans winning control of the Senate, and Republican governors “on a rampage.”

The party disagrees with Obama on some issues, but generally supports what he has done—and what he wants to accomplish in his final two years.

The party’s slogan used to be, “People before profits.” Now it’s “People and nature before profits,” incorporating the demands of the “green” movement to deindustrialize the U.S., promote “climate change” legislation and stop fracking.

While Republicans think the pendulum is swinging in their favor this year, Fishman begs to differ, noting, “The political landscape is beginning to change in the historically deep red Southern states. The Moral Monday movement has spread to 12 states now, including Indiana. It is a multi-issue, multi-racial movement that is taking on racism and other divisions. Sen. Bernie Sanders has toured Southern states with this message. The racist police killing in Ferguson, Missouri and the exposé of lack of representation there is also inspiring voter registration in the south and nationally.”

The so-called “racist police killing” is, of course, a reference to police officer Darren Wilson defending himself against a black robber who rushed and attacked him in his police car.

Fishman’s praise of the so-called Moral Mondays Movement is significant.

A Few Bad Apples

by Burt Prelutsky on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

When it comes to Islam, people like George W. Bush, Barack Obama and our corrupt State Department, insist the jihadists are an aberration and should not be the cause of slandering an entire religion. To which, I say a heart-felt “Baloney!”

When it comes to the followers of Islam, we’re not talking about a few rotten apples; we’re talking about a toxic orchard. In much the same way, our leaders keep pretending there’s a world of difference between Sunni and Shite, or between Al Qaeda, the Khorasan Group, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood. They even pretend that CAIR, the propaganda arm of the Brotherhood here in America, is any better or has any other function than the Nazi Bund had in the 30s and early 40s, prior to our entry into World War II. The problem is that the past two administrations have refused to acknowledge that Islam is at war with us.

Whether it’s a beheading in Oklahoma or several others in Iraq; the killing and maiming of several members of the military by Major Hasan; the burning of churches and Christians in Egypt; the D.C. killers; the pressure cooker bombings in Boston; the kidnapping and raping of 300 school girls in Nigeria; clitorectomies in Yemen; suicide bombings in Israel; or the horror of 9/11; our gutless leaders insist it has nothing to do with Islam. Even though the villains are constantly telling us that the crimes are committed in the name of Allah, those sworn to protect America insist they’re lying and that they have nothing to do with Islam. You might as well pretend that the concentration camps, the ovens and Dr. Mengele’s nightmarish operations, were all aberrations and had nothing to do with Nazism.

As you may have heard, perennial bachelor and left-wing pinhead George Clooney finally got around to tying the knot with the Lebanese-born Amal Alamuddin. One can easily see the mutual attraction. One, both are physically attractive. Two, lawyer Alamuddin has represented the Communist state of Cambodia, the former Libyan chief of intelligence Abdullah Al Senussi and the vile Julian Assange, while simultaneously opposing the use of drones in counter-intelligence operations and, predictably, condemned Israel for defending itself against Hamas. She said, “I am horrified by the situation in the occupied Gaza Strip,” but never condemned the tunnels dug by Islamic terrorists or the thousands of missiles that the vermin constantly rain down on Israel.

It can be very difficult shopping for a couple who have everything but brains, but I don’t think anyone can go wrong sending the newlyweds the collected works of Saul Alinsky or an autographed photo of Osama bin Laden.

During his recent address to the U.N., Obama, in the same sentence, actually linked Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and ISSA’s attempt to create a caliphate in the Middle East to the shooting of a black thug, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. It would be as if I seriously compared someone being diagnosed with cancer or another person’s having a leg amputated to my case of the sniffles.

The Democratic Party’s White Voter Problem

by Daniel Greenfield on Monday, September 22nd, 2014

This is article 373 of 377 in the topic Elections

Hardly a week goes by without some Democratic Party hack putting finger to iPad and swiping out a screed about the Republican Party’s problem with women or minorities.

This time it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz with “The GOP’s Woman Problem”. Schultz claims that the Republican Party was “rejected again by a bloc of voters that make up more than half of the electorate”. That claim is as real as Schultz’s hair color. The only bloc that rejected Romney was the same bloc that rejected Hillary; the bloc of minority voters who came out in force for Obama.

And unless Hillary Clinton also had a “woman problem” they didn’t do it over gender.

For example in the South Carolina Democratic primary, Obama beat Hillary among women by 54 to 30. That’s a much bigger split than the one between Obama and Romney among women. While Hillary Clinton beat Obama among white voters, Obama won 78 percent of the black vote.

There was no gender gap. There was a racial gap.

Throughout her campaign, Hillary Clinton consistently won the votes of white women in large numbers and lost the votes of women who said that their gender was not important. Obama won the female vote by his largest margins in southern states because he wasn’t really winning by gender, he was benefiting from a large turnout of black women.

Obama won the female vote in Georgia by 32%, but Hillary won 62% of the white female vote. Obama however had won 87% of the black female vote. In Ohio, Hillary and Obama had nearly the same split, but Hillary won the female vote in Ohio by 16% because the racial makeup of the voters was different.

In 2012, Romney won 53% of the white female vote and 3% of the black female vote in Ohio. He didn’t lose women. He lost the same “bloc of voters” that had rejected Hillary, not over gender, but over race.

The Republican Party doesn’t have a “woman problem”. Romney won the votes of white women in every age group; including young women. And Obama lost white women as he did all white voters.

He lost white voters by 59% to 39%. He lost white voters of every age and gender. His loss among white voters was completely unprecedented for any winner of a presidential election.

The GOP doesn’t have a “woman problem”, but the Democrats have a “white woman problem” and a “white man problem”.

The articles about the GOP’s problem with minority voters blame the Republican Party for alienating minority voters. But shouldn’t the Democratic Party be held accountable for alienating white voters?

This is about more than just numbers.

The Democratic Party’s poor performance among white voters is leading it to engage in some very questionable behavior. If Obama and his party weren’t polling so poorly among white voters, it’s doubtful that the Democrats would be nakedly exploiting racial tensions in Ferguson in the hopes of turning out black voters for the midterm elections.

This isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s a New York Times article which describes how the Democrats are hoping to retain control of the Senate “as they urge black voters to channel their anger by voting Democratic in the midterm elections”.

Forget slavery: even too Uncle Tom for conservatives?

by Lloyd Marcus on Friday, September 12th, 2014

This is article 164 of 166 in the topic Racism

Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a black person too Uncle Tom-ish for even them. Their retort is “Surely, you must admit that being African American in America is challenging.” When my reply is, “No, it is not.” their reply is, “Thanks for coming on the show Lloyd. And we’ll be right back.”

I am in my sixties and America has come a very long way since my youth. Mary, my beautiful awesome white wife of 38 years and I began dating over 40 years ago. We caught heck from both sides; severe push back from our families. We were chased in our car by a car load of angry white boys. On another occasion, we were waiting at a traffic light when a white man got out of his car, cursed at us and spat on our car. A white landlord revealed to me that her black maid advised her not to rent to us because any black man who dates a white woman is no good.

Then, there was the time at a family restaurant, a white man approached our table and smashed a beer bottle on my forehead and fled the restaurant. I was not severely injured and he was later apprehended. Back in those days, being black in America had its challenges.

Today, in terms of living a happy and fulfilled life; achieving one’s American dream, racism is not serious enough to block anyone. As a matter of fact, America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet. I am extremely grateful to God for blessing me to be born an American. Cut the victim crap and go for your dreams.

Is racism alive and well in America? Absolutely, on both sides. People have a variety of prejudices. Is racial prejudice in America prevalent enough to stop anyone from achieving? No.

The Bible says “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Wow, what a powerful truth, able to empower or destroy you. If you see yourself as a victim, you are. But, if you see yourself powerful and free, you are.

Can someone please explain to me how viewing themselves as victims of slavery empowers black Americans today? It does not, quite the opposite. Liberals love to lay the serious economic and moral problems devastating the black community at the feet of white America and America’s sin of slavery. This mindset weakens black America because it places their salvation in the hands of someone other than themselves; contingent on white behavior and intervention. Are we slaves on a national plantation waiting for our masters to better manage our lives?

Throughout American history there are countless inspiring tales of blacks using their will to succeed. Born in 1885, A’Lelia Walker was a black businesswoman. She was the first self made female millionaire in the United States and also one of the first black millionaires. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A%27Lelia_Walker

Imagine Miss Walker’s life had she obsessed about slavery and reparations.

My black college buddy Joe Ford was a wonderful role model; focus and determination. Joe had every excuse to fail.
