This is beyond offensive. Democratic Missouri Congressman Lacy Clay chose the painting below as part of the United States Congressional Art Competition. The so-called artist is David Pulphus and it is meant to depict the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, where a police office shot Michael Brown. That officer wound up moving and ending his career over this even though he did nothing wrong. Brown charged him and he did what he was trained to do. Black Lives Matter and the left immediately began to push the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” lie. That never happened, but tell a lie often enough and you’ll get a good number of useful idiots to believe you.
Pulphus paints the officers as pigs in his artwork. Two of the officers carry guns while protesters march towards them carrying signs that read “history,” “stop killing” and “racism kills.” It’s all kinds of wrong. It’s full of cop-hatred and racism, not to mention pent up violence. And my personal opinion is it just sucks as art. I guess I just don’t get BLM nuance. Pulphus’ artwork won first place in Missouri’s 1st Congressional District, so his painting now hangs in a tunnel between the Capitol building and the Longworth House Office Building. It should be in the trash.
From Young Conservatives:
The police have been demonized by the media and the left in this country over the last few years.
There is no question about that.
Some radical groups, like Black Lives Matter, have even called for the murder of police officers.
It’s been scary to watch.
You wouldn’t expect politicians and educated leaders to buy into the nonsense.
But that’s exactly what has happened.
Check out the picture that was approved to hang in the United States Capitol building.
A Missouri congressman has approved a painting that depicts cops as pigs to hang in the U.S. Capitol building.
The painting, done by David Pulphus, shows the unrest in Ferguson, Mo. after a police officer shot Michael Brown, reports the Independent Journal Review.
And the Democratic Congressman who approved the painting? He’s a piece of work himself. Rep. William Lacy Clay, Jr. is supported by the Communist Party USA and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. He’s part of the Progressive Caucus and the Black Caucus. Clay is a Marxist and a racist, so it figures he would be all in on this painting. He is a strong supporter of Black Lives Matter as well.
Clay praised the painting as a “colorful landscape of symbolic characters” in a press release. “The painting portrays a colorful landscape of symbolic characters representing social injustice, the tragic events in Ferguson and the lingering elements of inequality in modern American society,” the press release stated. Do tell… so you call cop-hatred colorful? Not everyone shares those sentiments… “Unfortunately, many people of influence have taken part in promoting offensive and inaccurate caricatures of the very people who do the most to protect our families,” Washington GOP Rep. Dave Reichert, a former police officer, told the Independent Journal Review.
A senior Republican congressional aide also blasted the artwork in a scathing statement provided to IJR:
“That a sitting member of Congress thought it was a good idea to honor the depiction of police officers as pigs — in the U.S. Capitol of all places — is reprehensible. I feel incredibly sad that the officers working nearby have to see this on the wall. These officers protect this congressman, his staff, and his office every day, never knowing if it may be their last. Meanwhile, he’s encouraging teenagers in his district to treat police officers as animals. It’s disgusting, and he should be ashamed. This hate masquerading as art needs to be taken down now.”
Naturally, Clay could not be reached for comment. He’s all for others threatening police officers, but when it comes to standing on his convictions, Clay seems to be more missing in action than activist at times. Clay also reportedly called the piece of art the “most creative expression that I’ve witnessed over the last 16 years” during remarks on the House floor.
It’s a massive disgrace that a painting depicting cops as pigs is hung in our Capitol. I’m fairly certain that if President-elect Trump has anything to say about it, that painting will be deep-sixed as it should be.
It’s been an interesting few weeks in The Show Me state of Missouri. Events there have not left anyone feeling as safe and secure as Obama keeps claiming they should be from his podium. Quite the opposite. Things in the US are getting really interesting these days in a bad way. First we had the Jihadist killings in San Bernardino by the Bonnie and Clyde of terrorism. On Syred Farook’s phone were pictures of at least 11 schools. Then this morning, the LA School District was evacuated. Over 700,000 students were sent home and 900 schools are being searched from top to bottom today because of an overseas terrorism threat sent to a school board member. That must have been one doozie of a threat. We are a little light on those details, but it evidently involved at least three schools and an unspecified number of students. Welcome to the new America.
Missouri just became ground zero for some intense evolving events that have occurred there recently. In the last week, six Walmarts were visited in the wee hours of the morning by at least two Middle Eastern men. At each stop they purchased 60 burner phones. They couldn’t be arrested because technically they did nothing illegal. Cell phones can be used for communications in terrorist cells and as detonators for bombs. ISIS just released a snuff film in Syria showing rebel prisoners who had explosives placed underneath them. The thugs stood off and detonated the bombs with their phones and rebel bits went everywhere. Just think what they could do with over 360 phones and those are just the ones we know about.
As concerning as those events were, it gets even worse. Over the last two weeks in Missouri, dozens of propane tanks have been stolen from various locations. As with the cell phones, the FBI says they are not concerned. Really? I’m sure they realize you can make bombs from propane tanks. Not to mention, you can empty them, pack them with explosives and plant them back in stores of propane tanks and set them off remotely. Yep, there are all kinds of nifty, evil uses for propane. There was also a sighting in Florida of several Muslim men buying propane tanks in bulk. Gee, wonder what they intend to do with them? That would make for one hell of a barbecue.
Man spotted in Madison County woods, not far from Mark Twain Forest explosives discovery
My favorite part of this whole screwed up affair by far involves a walk in the woods in the same area where the cell phones were purchased and the propane tanks went missing. First off, a man was spotted acting very suspiciously in the area. He has never been found, no big surprise there. The coup de grace has to be the other incident that occurred in the Mark Twain National Forest in Mid-Missouri. This is just 30 minutes from Lebanon, Missouri where one of the Walmart purchases took place. A hunter was camping in those woods when he noticed that the earth had been disturbed. He dug a little and what he found rocked his world. He called the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department who came out and brought a whole bunch of experts with them. Buried there was a massive cache of explosives. Not the kind you buy for personal use. Terrorist grade… the kind used in IEDs and pipe bombs. Still think there’s nothing to worry about in Missouri? I’d get worried and fast. The best part… they found the cache in October. That’s right, two months ago and the authorities didn’t tell anyone. After all, we wouldn’t want people to panic or have any chance whatsoever to protect themselves, now would we? Unbelievable.
Officers found a huge cache of “extremely volatile” explosives, which police described to be of a style “that could not be purchased for recreational use.” This suggests that the extensive supply was all homemade pipe bombs or other IEDs, created and collected with a specific plan in mind. The stock was so dangerous that it couldn’t be safely detonated without the help of the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit (EOD), the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s EOD Unit, and the Waynesville Rural Fire Department, KY3 reported. The exact location, as well as recent developments, make this discovery even more concerning than what law enforcement knew at the time.
The sheriff and authorities are denying that any of this is connected to terrorism. They are telling the public there is nothing to see here, move along. But how many pieces of the puzzle have to fall into place before you warn the public that something very bad is brewing? Evidently they consider mass purchases of burner phones, the theft of dozens of propane tanks and the uncovering of explosives as routine and nothing for Missourians to worry their pretty little heads about. There is absolutely nothing to worry about here until the day there is of course.
Guess who’s behind the protests in Chicago? Old, white communists from the ’60s – again. These agitators helped organize and coordinate last week’s protests in Chicago over the shooting death of Laquan McDonald. He was a 17 year-old black thug. A dashcam video shows him being shot 16 times by a white police officer. Cue the riots led by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
The festivities began at about 4 pm last Wednesday, downtown on the corner of Jackson and State Streets. The night before, these same communists enthusiastically handed out fliers stating their intention to be the driving force in the protest movement there. Retirement is so boring.
It didn’t start out as much of a protest evidently, but that changed as they made their way to downtown Chicago. Hundreds gathered to follow the radicals. The communists worked diligently together carrying a bullhorn, a connected loud speaker and a carefully crafted sign from an October protest in New York City. The primary agitator at the protest screaming nonstop into the bullhorn with a barrage of chants was longtime communist Chicago activist Grant Newburger.
Newburger claimed to be the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade when he was in his 40’s. Now he’s 57 and still at it. During Wednesday’s protest, he kept shouting to the crowd political stances pushing his communist agenda. Newburger and other communists urged people to show up for the protest on Black Friday, so they could shut down the “Magnificent Mile.” Newburger led moronic chants like, “16 shots!” Another shout-back recital was: “CPD. KKK. How many kids did you kill today?”
Enter another commie, Lou Downey. He’s also a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party. “Send the killer cops to jail,” Downey urged protesters to chant. He was followed by yet another middle-aged white communist woman yelling into the bullhorn.
The meandering crowd was halted by police around 6 pm on Wednesday before they could get to Lake Shore Drive, which is a bustling thoroughfare. So, they turned around and headed south. They eventually made their way to the Trump International Hotel & Tower blocking traffic as they went. “We are the people! The mighty mighty, mighty people,” was a communist agitator-led chant. Also: “Whose streets? OUR STREETS!” These people need to get some seriously new chants going. It’s trite. In front of Trump’s place, protesters yelled “hands up, don’t shoot” at an assembled throng of police officers. What an insult and a lie to boot.
“How many bullets in the clip?” an enraged white protester shouted at the cops while marching. “Fuck y’all.” “We are not products! We cannot be bought or sold!” was another Mensa moment. Next in line were the offices of ESPN radio and the local ABC affiliate.
By 9 pm, the white-communist-led protesters had made their way to the south Loop chanting “fuck the police.” Also: “We’re black. We’re strong. We’re marchin’ all night long.” If they weren’t so violent and dangerous, I’d compare them to four year-olds who are colorblind. For kicks, when they got to Millennium Park, they ripped the lights from the City of Chicago Christmas tree. If there’s one thing commies hate more than cops, it’s Christians.
From the beginning of the protests across the nation, including the Occupy movement and now Black Lives Matter, I have said that you would find communists behind the radicals. The Revolutionary Communist Party is a big player in all this, with their aging hippie Marxists who feel this is their last chance to cause upheaval in the nation. They have always hated the police and now they have a vehicle to work on that hatred. Charlie Manson would be proud.
You saw these same people in Ferguson, Missouri. They paid protesters and were behind the movements there. Now they are in Chicago. But trust me, wherever you see racial division and violent chaos in the streets, the communists are not far behind. And not all of them are old… there are a lot of young ones joining the ranks these days.
“We are revolutionaries,” Downey, the well-traveled communist agitator, told The Kansas City Star in August 2014. “We’re working to do this in a way that puts an end to the system that for generations has criminalized youth, especially black youth.”
In the Revolutionary Communist Party’s flier, they describe the efforts of police officers as “a campaign of terror with genocidal implications.” “This is a situation where the burning anger and righteous refusal of the people to take this shit any more has erupted repeatedly into resistance since the uprising in Ferguson over Mike Brown’s murder,” the handout declares. “We need an end to the whole system of capitalism-imperialism.”
“We need a whole different system, one where the system of oppression of Black people and other oppressed nationalities is eliminated, along with all the other outrages this system perpetuates here and around the world. This requires an actual revolution. This revolution is real and possible.”
The Party’s website presents a glowing picture of their founder and leader, Bob Avakian. Reality is somewhat different.
Bob Avakian is the Chairman of the anti-capitalism, Maoist Communist party formed in 1975 within the United States called the Revolutionary Communist Party.
In “From Ike to Mao and Beyond” (2005), Avakian tells the story of a middle-class California boy who moved left during the ’60s, first in the Free Speech Movement and Students for a Democratic Society at Berkeley, then with the Black Panther Party, and finally into the far-left Maoism of the party he founded in 1975, the Revolutionary Union – later to become the Revolutionary Communist Party.
A little history… Students for a Democratic Society met in June 1969 in Chicago. By this time, S.D.S. had more than a hundred thousand members, making it the largest leftist organization in the United States. Its politics were anti-imperialist and somewhat Marxist, although anarchist currents existed in the organization, as well. During the convention, three ideological groupings became clear. One was led by the Progressive Labor Party faction and espoused a Maoist philosophy, another was the Weatherman faction, also Maoist, but also a follower of third-world revolutionary nationalism, and the third dominant grouping was Marxist-Leninist. This latter grouping was originally known as the Revolutionary Youth Movement 2 (RYM 2). As time progressed, RYM 2 splintered into smaller formations, with one of the largest organizations calling itself the Revolutionary Union (R.U.).
R.U. began in the San Francisco Bay Area under the leadership of Jane Franklin, Bruce Franklin and Bob Avakian. In 1979, Avakian was arrested at a demonstration against Deng Xiaoping’s visit to the White House; charged with assaulting a police officer, he fled the United States for France. It is unknown where Avakian, “Chairman Bob,” currently resides.
“He has advanced the science of communism and made decisive breakthroughs in the theory, method, and strategy of revolution and the final goal of communism throughout the world,” their website declares.
The Revolutionary Communist Party runs a handful of radical bookstore franchises around the country called Revolution Books.
The Chicago mess started when McDonald died on October 20th, 2014. Evidence was withheld and once video was leaked, everything blew up. The officer in question is Jason Van Dyke, who has now been indicted on a single charge of first-degree murder. In the now public video, McDonald has a knife and is walking away from the police officers. Van Dyke shot McDonald from 15 feet away. He kept shooting even after the teenager was on the ground unresponsive. Van Dyke has been denied bail and he is in protective custody. Van Dyke’s lawyer has said the officer opened fire because he feared for his life and the lives of other police officers when he saw McDonald had a knife. He is citing the “Fleeing Felon” rule. Under U.S. law, the “Fleeing Felon” rule was limited in 1985 to non-lethal force in most cases by Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1. The justices held that deadly force “may not be used unless necessary to prevent the escape and the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious bodily harm to the officer or others.” If he is convicted, he will probably get 20 to life. The CPD has already settled with the McDonald family for $5 million reportedly.
Give the McDonald family its due… they asked people to refrain from violence this week. Then the commies came to gin people up just like they always do.
The Revolutionary Communist Party flier called for a Black Friday protest to begin at Chicago’s famous Old Water Tower at 11 am last Friday:
Black Friday saw thousands march in Chicago… they literally shut down the “Magnificent Mile.” This disrupted business on the busiest retail day of the year. It was the continuation of the protest over the shooting death of McDonald by officer Jason Van Dyke. The protest was also over the fact that the shooting has taken well over a year to even come up in court. They didn’t like the handling of the case and that was reflected this morning as the Police Superintendent was fired by the mayor there in Chicago. Mayor Rahm Emanuel never lets a crisis go to waste and he has found a sacrificial lamb to take the fall for all this.
Father Pfleger helped organize the Black Friday protests in Chicago. Father Michael Pfleger was a spiritual adviser to Barack Obama. He’s also a stone cold Marxist and a devout radical. He protested with Obama against the payday loan industry demanding the State of Illinois regulate loan businesses in January of 2000. He’s just one more communist member who abhors capitalism.
Approximately 2,000 protesters marched in the cold and wet with signs that said “Stop Police Terror” and other nifty slogans. Organizers said the rally, led by activist-politician Rev. Jesse Jackson and several state elected officials, was a show of outrage over the October 2014 death of Laquan McDonald and what they see as racial bias in U.S. policing. It took the prosecutor 13 months to announce charges in the case and just hours later, a graphic video of the shooting was released to comply with a court order. Now, the protesters want the head of the prosecutor as well and they may just get it at this rate.
“It’s unconscionable that the police officer who killed Laquan McDonald was able to sit at a desk for over a year and draw a paycheck,” said James Hinton, 49, who joined the march holding a sign that read: “13 months, 16 shots.” The protesters chanted “Stop the cover up, 16 shots,” as they marched along Michigan Avenue.
This is another instance of communists, anarchists, racists, Islamists and radicals joining forces because they want to ‘change’ the face of America. They all have different goals, but they believe if they unite to defeat a common enemy, they can overthrow the U.S. from within. The death of the teenager was tragic and it remains to be seen whether the officer will be held accountable for doing what he saw as his job. What will come as no surprise is that these aging, white, hippie communists will be somewhere behind every protest and every hate-filled event you see in our streets. That’s where they put their money and efforts. It’s what they live for… they want revolution.
The Young America’s Foundation “exclusively obtained a private message from students at the University of Missouri” advising peers to “arm themselves with tasers and pepper spray.” Also, TheBlaze reported that black students are being advised by peers and on social media to get weapons, presumably to protect themselves against vague, unsubstantiated hate crimes.
“…a group of students will be gathering to form a ‘safe place’ and intend to protect it with ‘non-lethal weapons’ throughout the course of the day. ‘Black students and [their] closest allies at Mizzou are encouraging their peers to arm themselves with tasers and pepper spray.’…”
Here is the image captured, which was “…sent earlier this morning and disseminated through private Facebook groups and text messages in order to deliberately avoid public exposure…”

As pointed out at theBlaze, “Students and supporters on social media have also called for black students to arm themselves while on campus.” But the incidents that have led up to the insanity are highly questionable. Back in September, University of Missouri Student Body President Payton Head “reported that people shouted racial slurs at him from a passing pickup truck, galvanizing the protest movement.” There was also a completely unsubstantiated account of a feces swastika. Today, it was reported that Payton Head further posted about the Ku Klux Klan being on campus, then deleted the post:
A bunch of black football players on the University of Missouri football team Tweeted out the other night that they refuse to take part in team activities until the university president resigns from office. I say, kick every one of them off the team. No big loss. If this is the kind of respect you show your university and your team, then you shouldn’t be part of it. They claim that University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe has been too slow in response to racial slurs and they aren’t standing for it. From what I understand, Wolfe is for all students’ rights and that is what they object to. So much so, that one graduate student was on a hunger strike. Let him starve if that is what he chooses to do. It’s still a free country. At least for now.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (TheBlaze/AP) — Black Missouri football players announced Saturday night on Twitter that they will not participate in team activities until the university president is removed from office.
The statement from the athletes was tweeted out Saturday by several members of the football team, including starting running back Russell Hansbrough.
The move aligns the team with campus groups who have been protesting the way university president Tim Wolfe has dealt with issues of racial harassment during the school year. Jonathan Butler, a black graduate student, is in the sixth day of a hunger strike to call attention to the issue.
The statement from the players included a photograph of 32 black men, including Butler. In the photo, two players have their arms linked through his:
The message reads: “The athletes of color on the University of Missouri football team truly believe ‘Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere’ We will no longer participate in any football related activities until President Tim Wolfe resigns or is removed due to his negligence toward marginalized students’ experience. WE ARE UNITED!!!!!”
Wolfe met with Butler and student groups on Friday to discuss the university’s handling of racial harassment cases.
Butler also has expressed concern about other student issues, including the removal of graduate student health care subsidies and an end to university contracts with a Planned Parenthood clinic.
Student groups have been critical over how Wolfe has handled issues of race and discrimination, and blocked his car at homecoming in an attempt to speak with him. They have complained that the use of racial slurs is prevalent. In April, a swastika was found in a Missouri dormitory, and officials said last month they were investigating another act of vandalism that targeted minorities.
The campus of 35,448 is mostly white. Approximately 17 percent of the student population identifies with a minority group, according to the university website.
Missouri last played Thursday night at home, losing to Mississippi State to fall to 4-5 on the season. The Tigers have three more games left, including next Saturday at home against BYU.
They are also whining about Obamacare subsidies being removed and the ending of Planned Parenthood contracts. What does that have to do with football? Do players get abortions now? This is total leftist, racist, Marxist claptrap. Wolfe has been far more patient with these jerks than I would be. Race has nothing to do with it. They claim to have found a swastika in a dorm made out of feces. Color me highly skeptical on that claim. If there was one, it was probably a liberal plant. These idiots have been threatening Wolfe for some time and he stood his ground until today when he resigned. What the hell for? Being white? I bet he quit and said to them, ‘Here… you can have them. I’m through!’ And I wouldn’t blame him in the least.
Tim Wolfe was eloquent and distinguished in his stepping down. He’s too good for that university; they don’t deserve him. He took full responsibility, but the real fault lies with the radicals. I don’t think he should have stepped down. He caved to a bunch of Marxist students who only care about themselves. He was dignified in his resignation, but it still had the feel of surrender. 8% of the school is black and they are letting them dictate policy.
The University of Missouri system’s president, Tim Wolfe, resigned Monday morning in the face of growing protests by African-American students, the threat of a walkout by faculty and a strike by football players who said he had done too little to combat racism on campus.
Wolfe made the stunning announcement at the start of a special Board of Curators meeting Monday morning that had been scheduled to address the growing crisis at the Show Me state’s flagship university. The board voted in favor of accepting his resignation.
“I am resigning as president of the University Missouri system,” said Wolfe, who choked up as he announced he was stepping down. “My motivation in making this decision comes from a love of Columbia where I grew up and the state of Missouri. I thought and prayed over this decision. It is the right thing to do … The frustration and anger I see is real, and I don’t doubt it for a second.”
After Wolfe’s announcement, the university’s athletic department said in a statement that the football team would return to the practice field Tuesday to prepare for its game on Saturday against BYU. Canceling the game would have cost the university in excess of $1 million. I sincerely hope no one shows. I know I wouldn’t. By the way, the basketball team refused to protest with these thugs. Good for them. But the faculty were ready to walk out. The football players and radical students should be expelled. The protesting faculty should be fired over this.
The student protesters, after having achieved their goal of ridding the university of Wolfe, were then confrontational with reporters today. They set up a “no media safe space” for protesters and harassed reporters who were trying to take photos. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch‘s sports writer Benjamin Hochman tweeted out images of protesters linking arms to create the “safe space” and also tweeted out a video of protesters clashing with a reporter who presumably infringed upon the safe space. Sounds like these dimwits are getting their degrees in fascism.
The students at Mizzou have built a human shield to block reporters from interviewing peaceful protesters pic.twitter.com/YCZjuvIZDL
Hundreds of protesters gathered on the university’s quad to celebrate after Wolfe announced his resignation. Shame on these morons. They sang We Shall Overcome, a song that had become an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement and said the episode was just one moment in what will be a larger push for change on campus. You betcha! This is the Black Lives Matter movement on campus. This is just the beginning in institutions of higher victimization as Rush Limbaugh put it today.
As Denise Simon put it, this has the social justice types at the White House and the Department of Justice’s fingerprints all over it. These people don’t have specific demands… they just want blacks and radicals to control the campus and university. These universities have bred this and are now reaping what they have sown. I don’t feel sorry for them and I don’t think we should have our children attending them. They are a breeding ground for radicals, communists and insurgents. Enough of the white privilege already.
This whole thing is insane and getting worse. I’ll close by sharing the radicals’ inane demands. This is what higher learning has morphed into in America. They now force anyone who doesn’t agree with them out. Bet their parents are proud.
Demands from Concerned Student 1950 – they get their name from the first year that a black student attended the university:
I. We demand that the University of Missouri System President, Tim Wolfe, writes a handwritten apology to the Concerned Student 1-9-5-0 demonstrators and holds a press conference in the Mizzou Student Center reading the letter. In the letter and at the press conference, Tim Wolfe must acknowledge his white male privilege, recognize that systems of oppression exist, and provide a verbal commitment to fulfilling Concerned Student 1-9-5-0 demands. We want Tim Wolfe to admit to his gross negligence, allowing his driver to hit one of the demonstrators, consenting to the physical violence of bystanders, and lastly refusing to intervene when Columbia Police Department used excessive force with demonstrators.
II. We demand the immediate removal of Tim Wolfe as UM system president. After his removal a new amendment to UM system policies must be established to have all future UM system president and Chancellor positions be selected by a collective of students, staff, and faculty of diverse backgrounds.
III. We demand that the University of Missouri meets the Legion of Black Collegians’ demands that were presented in 1969 for the betterment of the black community.
IV. We demand that the University of Missouri creates and enforces comprehensive racial awareness and inclusion curriculum throughout all campus departments and units, mandatory for all students, faculty, staff, and administration. This curriculum must be vetted, maintained, and overseen by a board comprised of students, staff, and faculty of color.
V. We demand that by the academic year 2017-2018, the University of Missouri increases the percentage of black faculty and staff campus-wide to 10%.
VI. We demand that the University of Missouri composes a strategic 10 year plan by May 1, 2016 that will increase retention rates for marginalized students, sustain diversity curriculum and training, and promote a more safe and inclusive campus.
VII. We demand that the University of Missouri increases funding and resources for the University of Missouri Counseling Center for the purpose of hiring additional mental health professionals — particularly those of color, boosting mental health outreach and programming across campus, increasing campus-wide awareness and visibility of the counseling center, and reducing lengthy wait times for prospective clients.
VIII. We demand that the University of Missouri increases funding, resources, and personnel for the social justices centers on campus for the purpose of hiring additional professionals, particularly those of color, boosting outreach and programming across campus, and increasing campus-wide awareness and visibility.
Born in 1856, Booker T. Washington was an amazing black educator, orator, author and adviser to US presidents.
Isn’t it interesting that black men and women in America way back then were achieving extraordinary success? Meanwhile, liberals and Democrats claim America is such a hellhole of racism that blacks need cradle-to-grave welfare, affirmative action, lowered standards and numerous other special concessions to survive. Why am I seemingly the only black person on the planet highly offended by the Left’s bigotry of lowered expectations? Actually, I know other blacks who share my frustration with blacks who think liberals and Democrats are their friends.
Booker T. Washington so succinctly and perfectly described black race profiteers, I am convinced he personally knew Al Sharpton. Thus, Sharpton must have a portrait of himself in his attic like Dorian Gray. The portrait collects Sharpton’s plethora of sins and keeps his appearance from reflecting his true age. I suspect this despicable race hustling conman has been peddling crap/hate for a very, very long time.
Washington really nailed Sharpton and the Black Lives (Lies) Matter movement in his following quote.
“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Can you believe Washington said that back in the late 1800s? Black “losers” (a little Trump lingo) were exploiting race and looking for a free ride. As the saying goes, there in nothing new under the sun.
So, here we go again. To commemorate the one year anniversary of the death of black thug Michael Brown, Black Lives Matter thugs trashed Ferguson again. http://cnn.it/1MpUaCa Liberals still advise government to walk on eggshells to appease the BLM terrorists.
Michael Brown robbed and assaulted the clerk of a convenience store. He died attacking a police officer. Period. End of subject. Why in the name of all that is righteous would intelligent people, black and white, reward this thug with civil rights hero status? How offensive is that? What a slap in the face to the legacies of real civil rights icons?
Black Lives Matter thugs are allowed to roam the country wrecking havoc. At a major speaking event, liberal Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders allowed BLM thugs to storm the stage, take his microphone and run him off his own stage. How wimpy is that? http://bit.ly/1DMRkEq
Democrat presidential contender Martin O’Malley also allowed BLM thugs to hijack his event. O’Malley wimped out and pandered to the rude thugs. O’Malley’s attempt at appeasement emboldened the thugs to demand that he apologize for daring to say “white lives and all lives matter.” O’Malley complied. http://fxn.ws/1WlZnhh
Sanders and O’Malley displayed typical Democratic Party weakness and politically correct liberal thinking. Liberals believe because blacks were slaves in America, whites must be careful not to offend and have no moral authority to ever tell blacks no.
These two Democrats immediately waving the white flag of surrender to BLM perfectly illustrates why Democrats must never be in-charge of our national defense.
Black Lives Matter thugs are bullying everyone because they can. These evil hate-filled race profiteers ignored the facts in every incident in which a black is killed. The movement is a scam. BLM is really about gaining political power. It is not about resolving issues or racial unity. Nor do they want as Washington brilliantly stated, “the Negro to lose his grievances…”
The insidiously evil movement is unworthy of respect from the American people. Pandering to BLM is a huge mistake; emboldening them to behave more outrageously and make more absurd demands.
BLM has intimidated numerous major corporations. Cowering in fear, major store chains have stopped selling confederate flags. http://cnn.it/1JV3ig5
What continues to boggle my mind is why do liberal activists always fight for symbolic changes which do not impact blacks’ lives in any way. And yet, not only do liberals ignore, they verbally beat up anyone who dares to address real issues plaguing the black community. http://bit.ly/1HIFUMF What is up with that?
Bottom line, America needs to stop pandering to Black Lives Matter haters and race profiteers. Tell these terrorists no. Tell them to shut up and go away. If not, the infectious BLM disease will continue to grow and spread, nurturing racial hate, pounding on it’s chest and poisoning our great land.
Amidst all the other emergencies, real and concocted here in the US, one has gone almost virtually unnoticed. But it’s a kicker. The Bird Flu is sweeping the country like wildfire and has now killed 45 million chickens and turkeys here in the US… 20 million 2 months ago and 25 million last month. Nearly 80 percent of those are egg-laying hens, a reality that has been crippling for the egg industry. That’s staggering. And to goose the visuals for a little perspective, take a gander:

Guess where we are going today? To buy dozens of eggs. We have two fridges and we’re stocking up. Consider it our modest way of getting into the commodities market in egg futures. Fully 25% of the US’ chickens and turkeys are now ‘offline,’ which is a nice way of saying they have died from the flu or have been euthanized. If one bird gets sick in a batch, they slaughter all of them.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Millions of dead chickens and turkeys lie in stinking, fly-swarmed piles near dozens of Iowa farms, casualties of a bird flu virus that’s swept through the state’s large poultry operations in the last month.
Contractors hired by the U.S. Department of Agriculture move methodically from barn to barn at the 28 farms, killing the animals that haven’t yet died from the H5N2 virus — a suffocating foam for turkeys, carbon dioxide gas to asphyxiate chickens. Neighbors say they understand the challenge the state’s producers face in disposing of more than 20 million bird carcasses, but are eager for quick action, especially as temperatures rise.
“People in low-lying areas near those facilities have contacted me complaining about a very large number of flies and, until the wind comes up and goes the right direction, a lingering odor,” said Sen. David Johnson, whose northwest Iowa district includes Sunrise Farms — where 3.8 million chickens in 20 barns are dead or dying.
There are few details about how the carcasses are being handled; some are piled up and covered with dirt or other material, turkeys are often composted inside barns and at least one chicken farm is burying them in trenches. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is working with area landfills on agreements to dispose of poultry inside plastic bio-bags and has approved permits for a company to operate portable incinerators in three counties, with the possibility of a fourth roving incinerator.
But one thing is clear, according to Ken Hessenius, a DNR environmental supervisor: “We’ve got to look at all methods of disposal here to deal with this. It truly is a crisis. It’s an extremely difficult situation for all these farms.”
Iowa, which raises nearly 20 percent of the nation’s egg-laying chickens and produces nearly one in every five eggs consumed in the U.S., saw its first reported case on April 13. Since then, nearly 21 million chickens and 470,000 turkeys have died, are dying or are in line to be euthanized. It isn’t the only state dealing with the issue: More than 100 farms in the Midwest have been hit, leading to the loss of more than 28 million chickens and turkeys — 5.5 million of those in Minnesota, the nation’s leading turkey producer.
So, buckle up… because this emergency is expected to last at least a year and a half. The eggpocalypse is upon us it would seem. The poultry industry is facing two, count ’em two, strains of Bird Flu here in the US now. So far, the H5N2 strain has hit the states of Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Arkansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin. It has also been identified in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia. The H5N8 strain has not been doing quite as much damage yet, but it has been killing birds in California, Idaho, Indiana, Oregon and Washington. In addition, Canadian officials have discovered that the H5N1 strain is spreading in British Columbia. Wonder why a poultry plague is not big news in the US? By the time Americans figure out there is a problem, it’ll be too late for most of them to take any mitigating action. I don’t know about you, but we depend on eggs. My household eats Paleo and Whole30 and eggs are a mainstay for us. What are the odds that two different strains would go active at the same time? Aggressive little mutant flu virus, for sure. Who knew that chickens would experiment with influenza virology? Those hens need to be careful what eggscapes from their dimly lit underground labs. Without proper precautions, some dumb cluck could devastate egg production nationwide. *Ahem* … okay, meanwhile back on this side of the cartoon curtain…
It is so dire out there, a number of suppliers are going to what they call “eggless eggs.” These are eggs produced from plants. Sounds so very tasty – not. Whataburger has announced that it is going to be limiting the number of hours that it serves breakfast. McDonald’s and others can’t be far behind. They will either limit hours serving, raise costs, limit their menus or all of the above. I almost feel sorry for McDonald’s – they are mostly shutting down in San Francisco because of skyrocketing property prices. Then there’s the minimum wage fiasco – $15 an hour will also shut them down. Heck, in de Blasio’s commie utopia, 1 in 5 fast food joints are closing their doors now because of the $15 an hour extortion imposed on them. Seattle, Portland and LA are lining up as well. You have to wonder about Walmart running national ads about how great they are since they will be paying their employees higher wages. Egg timer on viability anyone? But, I digress.
“Clinicians should consider the possibility of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5 virus infection in persons showing signs or symptoms of respiratory illness who have relevant exposure history,” the CDC said in a health alert issued to doctors.
“This includes persons who have had contact with potentially infected birds (e.g., handling, slaughtering, defeathering, butchering, culling, preparation for consumption); direct contact with surfaces contaminated with feces or parts (carcasses, internal organs, etc.) of potentially-infected birds; and persons who have had prolonged exposure to potentially-infected birds in a confined space.”
Boy, this would be an elitist’s dream… how to reduce the population and fast. Let’s pray that this virus does not jump the shark.
I’m in Oklahoma – the rationing is in Texas and soon to come in other states I presume.
The egg shortage and Bird Flu pandemic is just one emergency… we are caught in the middle of a number of harsh scenarios playing out. Everything from the drought in the west which will cause food inflation and other ramifications, to terrorism threats from ISIS.
From the attack in Garland, Texas to the take down of two Jihadists in Boston who were planning to behead Pamela Geller and police officers, lone wolf attacks and worse are becoming a reality here in the States. Yesterday, a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) helicopter was shot at and had to make an emergency landing. The shots came from Mexico and it’s your best guess whether it was the emboldened cartels or ISIS, who has at least two camps there, or a combo of both. Now ISIS is bragging it can bring a nuclear weapon into the US… I suggest we pay attention with the non-existent borders we now have.
Our cities are also embroiled in an epic crime wave, escalating across the nation. Shooting attacks — mostly ethnic minorities — are up 60 percent in Baltimore so far this year compared to 2014. Homicides are up 180 percent in Milwaukee, 25 percent in St. Louis, 32 percent in Atlanta and 13 percent in New York in the same period. All because of Progressive-manipulated racism and riots, fomenting cop hatred. In other words, Cloward and Piven.
Probably of the greatest concern to many here in the US is our massive unemployment problem, the fall of the dollar and it’s replacement as the world’s reserve currency. Did you know that a global bond crash has started? Didn’t hear that in the news? I’m not surprised. Why do you think they want to do away with tangible money? The powers-that-be want to go digitized so they can implement taxes and a global fiscal confiscation “haircut” to bail their sorry asses out as the fiscal emergency — of their own creation — continues to spiral out of control. The Chinese look to take control with the Yuan as the new global currency. Since they are our biggest debt holder, what do Americans think will happen when they come to collect?
Militarily, Russia, China and Iran are plotting and planning on a World War to end all wars. And with a neutered US, there may be no one standing in their way of global conquest. I saw one major media outlet predict WWIII was a sure bet beginning this summer and to pray it would not be nuclear. If it goes full blown, nukes are a virtual certainty along with financial, cyber and space warfare.
The fat lady isn’t belting it out in the US yet, but she’s humming a few notes. The Bird Flu is just one more note in a discordant visage playing out in America. Marxists believe you have to break a few eggs to make a communist omelet – I always thought that was supposed to be a metaphor.
With the recent shooting in Ferguson and deaths in New York City and Baltimore of residents there involved in criminal activity at the time of their arrests, there is an outcry from the likes of civil rights activist Al Sharpton and others for nullification of state’s rights and the takeover of local and state police forces nationwide by the Federal Government, specifically by the Executive Branch.

In all of this, keep in mind that Obama has very successfully used “straw man” arguments to advance his objectives. In this particular case, the “straw man” argument being put forward is that all law enforcement agencies across America are inherently racist and that only his takeover of them will fix these racist organizations.
He has essentially painted a bull’s eye on the backs of our local and state law enforcement personnel and endorsed instead the criminal element in America that has responded by assassination style shootings of law enforcement personnel in NYC and most recently in Mississippi as well.
The nationalization of our local and state police forces is indeed a very bad idea and should be adamantly opposed by both the states and the general populace for several reasons.
First and foremost, it would bring ALL organized armed personnel, namely the American Military, Homeland Security, and all local and state police under the direct control of one man, namely Obama and any future Presidents of the United States.
That would in turn allow for tremendous abuses of that power that we have already seen in this Administration, such as use of the IRS and DHS against what he perceives to be his domestic enemies, namely anyone who opposes him and his policies.
Remember the National Police Force Obama Promised in 2008?
Secondly, if he decided to fully seize power and set aside the limitations of the Office of President imposed on him by the Constitution of the United States, which he has already done in a number of particulars such as with illegal immigration, failure to enforce DOMA, bypassing Congress unilaterally in matters of treaty negotiations, etc., there would be no armed force except the American people directly to stop him.
But without organization and leadership, the probability of that successfully happening on a national scale is remote.
In fact, he could use all of the organized armed forces at his disposal, including local and state police who would be under his direct control, to put down any such opposition that the people might undertake.
As reported in The Daily Bell on December 7, 2011, as early as 2009 Obama advocated “a civilian police force to match the size and power of our armed forces.” One has to ask the question “Why” such national control is required vs. local law enforcement properly trained and equipped to deal with any domestic terrorist threats?
His expansion of the Homeland Security Department has followed that pronouncement, as has his use of the NSA to go far beyond its mandate and monitor the communications of every man, woman and child in America.
And the fact that he is actively promoting and funding illegal immigration on a massive scale in America today without screening for terrorists crossing our borders begs the question of if he indeed wants to see an increase in domestic terrorist attacks like we have seen in many places across the USA such as at Ft. Hood, Oklahoma, Boston and most recently in Garland, Texas with the expressed purpose of forcing the need for such a national police force under his direct control to put down such attacks?
Obama has gone on record on more than one occasion to praise the Chinese Communist form of government and other authoritarian regimes that are essentially dictatorships based on central government control over all aspects of their citizens’ lives including how many children they can have, how they worship, how they communicate with each other over the Internet, and even how they assemble.
Do we want a man with the belief that an authoritarian form of government is preferable to a democratically elected government with clear separation of powers between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches as set for in our Constitution to have the kind of unlimited power that nationalization of our local and state law enforcement agencies would give him?
