“Enemies Within” Teaser: Grijalva, Gutierrez, Medina, Obama’s Marxist “Amnistas”

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

America’s three most effective illegal immigrant amnesty activists were all members of Barack Obama’s Latino Advisory Council in 2008.

The three key “Amnistas” are Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva, Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez and SEIU Executive Vice President Eliseo Medina.

All three work closely together. All three are staunch allies of the President. All three have Marxist backgrounds. All three want to use Latino immigrants to create a socialist America.


Raul Grijalva is, like the President himself, a disciple of Chicago radical Saul Alinsky.

“I’m a Saul Alinsky guy, you know, that’s where I learned this stuff,” Grijalva told socialist journal In These Times.

Also, like the president, Grijalva has close ties to the Communist Party USA – even penning an article for the party’s Peoples Weekly World back in November 1993.


Grijalva has been very active in immigration issues in Arizona, but in 2009 he joined with Luis Gutierrez and other elected officials and launched a new push for comprehensive immigration reform, building to the opening months of 2010. Their banners read: “Reform Immigration FOR Families” and “Family Unity Cannot Wait.”


Luis Gutierrez became an Alderman under Chicago’s socialist mayor Harold Washington and belonged for many years to the pro-Cuba Puerto Rican Socialist Party. He has been working to pave the way for illegal immigrant amnesty since the early 1990s. First in Chicago, later nationally.

And like the President, Gutirrez has long been close to the US’ largest Marxist organization Democratic Socialists of America.

Below, Gutierrez is listed speaking at a DSA sponsored forum in Chicago in 1998 with DSAers Dolores Huerta, Rep. Danny Davis, Jose LaLuz (later head of Latinos for Obama) and Stan Gacek.


Like the President (who was an actual member), Gutierrez was close to the Democratic Socialists of America sponsored New Party in Chicago in the mid-1990s.


Eliseo Medina is a leading member of Democratic Socialists of America, but is also a big fan of the Communist Party’s Peoples’ Weekly World.

“For us, the PWW has been and always will be the people’s voice”


Medina has led the charge in the US labor movement to turn unions away from their traditionally anti-illegal immigrant stance, to one of ardently supporting mass amnesty.

This has been helped by the fact that the AFL-CIO was taken over by Democratic Socialists of America in 1995 and now toes the socialist line on every major policy issue.

In 2009, Medina revealed the true purpose of amnesty, while addressing a “progressive” conference in Washington, D.C.

Speaking of Latino voters, Medina said “when they voted in November, they voted overwhelmingly for progressive candidates. Barack Obama got two out of every three voters that showed up.”

So I think there’s two things that matter for the progressive community.

Number one, if we are to expand this electorate to win, the progressive community needs to solidly be on the side of immigrants, that we’ll expand and solidify the progressive coalition for the future…

Number two. “We reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters”. Can you imagine if we have, even the same ratio, two out of three?

If we have eight million new voters who care about …… and will be voting. We will be creating a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle..

In other words, illegal immigrant amnesty is about giving the Democrats and their socialist and communist masters permanent, unchallengeable power… “not just for an election cycle.”

To get get the full picture of how the left are trying to destroy America through illegal immigration and amnesty, you must read Trevor Loudon’s new book The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress.

Tisha B’Av

Arlene from Israel

The 9th of Av.

Today is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. A day of mourning and fasting. It is the day on which the Temples were destroyed, and, traditionally, is seen as the time at which a number of other calamities have fallen the Jewish people.

We are taught that the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE because of sinat hinam — causeless hatred between Jews.

Credit: bleon

And it is this that I want to address here before going on to other matters.


It is difficult for me to write this, but I must. For healing cannot proceed without acknowledgement of what is happening.

And what is happening here in Israel is sinat hinam.

The worst, the most shameful perhaps, is the physical attack on hareidi (ultra-Orthodox) soldiers by other hareidi men. It has happened three times now.

There is a battle going on now in terms of conscription of hareidi young men, who have until now been exempt from military service if they were studying full time in yeshiva. I happen to think that those in charge of structuring changes in the law on hareidi conscription handled the matter insensitively — and, in fact, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon says he may not proceed with the full conscription that will be permitted by the law.

I am aware, as well, of the sense within the hareidi community that the conscription threatens their insular way of life, that it will cause some of their young men to “go off the path,” and that it takes away from the supreme value of Torah study.


But there is another side to this that has to do with the hareidi young men being involved in the fabric of Israeli life and carrying their weight. What is more, not every young man born into the hareidi community is temperamentally or intellectually fit for full time Torah study. Their place is elsewhere within the larger community — within the IDF and the workplace.

The new law does allow for exemptions for the best of the Torah scholars, not everyone is to be drafted.

And there are units within the IDF specifically for hareidi soldiers — providing them with proper levels of kashrut, and time for their prayers.

Credit: viciousbabushka


What has happened is that some members of the hareidi community — and the point must be made that it’s a small number of that community! — see those hareidi young men who have volunteered to serve as traitors. And are so enraged with them that they have physically attacked.

It is vile and inexcusable in all terms. People cannot claim to stand for study of Torah and behave thus at the same time. It does not compute and for me invalidates their claims.

Their behavior is also hillul Hashem — it brings disgrace to the name of the Almighty.


I’m seeing other instances of sinat hinam that constitute hillul Hashem as well, in particular with regard to some severe tensions over the selection of new chief rabbis. There are derisive comments incoming from certain quarters that are totally unacceptable.

For all of this, I am ashamed and grieve.

As a rabbi whose shiur (lesson) I attended today said, we must recognize that the way we are behaving is crazy, and stand up and heal ourselves.

There is so very much in this country that is good — so much lovingkindness and blessing. But it has to be better still.


Never in the years that I have doing these postings have I received as many messages as I do now from my readers about ostensible happenings that are, in fact, inaccurate or simply not true. There is so much out there that is undocumented and (I would venture to say) in some cases simply made up. These things are shared by e-mail or put up on websites. I do not want to address particulars here, but would like to caution that care be taken before alarmist stories (for that’s the crux of it — these are alarmist stories ) are accepted as true.

This doesn’t mean some very alarmist things are not really happening. They are. But checking facts is advised.


For some time now there has been a serious disagreement between our government and the US government with regard to how close to constructing a nuclear bomb it’s possible to allow Iran to get before it’s necessary to intervene.

“We’re watching, we’ll know before it’s done,” the US officials have insisted, saying there was still time. While Netanyahu has told them they’re wrong — the Iranians must be stopped at an earlier stage than what the Americans have been saying, because it won’t be possible to tell at the very end. Suddenly, unexpectedly it will be too late.

And guess what? Netanyahu is correct. Are we surprised?

According to Israel Hayom yesterday:

“The United States is concerned that Iran would somehow be able to deceive the West and develop a nuclear weapon ‘under the radar,’ and it is no longer certain that it would be able to learn of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s intentions to that effect ahead of time, Israel Hayom learned Sunday.

“Despite the West’s attempts to carefully monitor Iran’s nuclear progress, a senior Western source told Israel Hayom that Tehran’s accelerated uranium enrichment efforts and the fact that it has multiple secret enrichment sites were cause for concern.”


In fact, according to Israel Hayom’s source (emphasis added):

The US “is very concerned for Israel and its other allies in the Middle East.”

“Very concerned”? This enrages me. And I hope it enrages you, as well. Obama could stop “being concerned” for Israel and others if he used the power that ONLY the US has, and took out Iran’s enrichment sites. Or if he even agreed to put a “credible military option” on the table, as Netanyahu has so urgently requested.

But, as I’ve just written, Obama is demonstrating a distinct disinclination to use that military option. He’d rather send people to sit over coffee with the new Iranian president-elect.

So expressed “concern” strikes me as rather hypocritical.


Then, once again, to the question of what Netanyahu is going to do about Iran in the end.

First, see this video of a CBS Face the Nation interview with the prime minister. He appears decidedly resolute when he declares that he “won’t wait too long”:



Then we have the statement, originally from Maariv, by a “senior diplomatic source,” that Israel will not hit Iran in the end.


It would help if we knew the political orientation of this “source.” My inclination at this point is still to take Netanyahu at his word on this.


And intelligence consultant Daniel Nisman, writing in the Wall Street Journal, agrees, saying that, “Israel has launched long-shot attacks before” (emphasis added):

“Last week, Israel’s outgoing ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, sought to settle a long-running debate regarding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s willingness to use military force to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

“‘Certainly,’ Mr. Oren told daily newspaper Haaretz, ‘[Mr. Netanyahu] was the one who succeeded in drawing the world’s attention to the threat. . . . But this success is not enough. The question he faces is similar to the question that [former Prime Minister Levi] Eshkol faced in May 1967.’

“…Throughout its short history, the state of Israel has repeatedly shocked the world with bold military operations previously considered impossible, unthinkable, or borderline suicidal. On June 5, 1967, Eshkol sent most of Israel’s air force into Egypt for a surprise preemptive attack, which left less than a dozen warplanes to defend the entire homeland. In the six days that followed, Israel defeated multiple threatening Arab armies, changing the face of the Middle East to this day.

“Since the Six Day War, successive Israeli leaders have signed off on daring operations that have entered the annals of history…

“In the face of such choices, forget the intelligence estimates and risk assessments. It ultimately takes a do-or-die, all-or-nothing mindset to make a decision which could either bring complete victory, or considerable military defeat and diplomatic isolation. In this context, Mr. Netanyahu not only views Iran as an existential threat comparable to the Nazi Holocaust—he also wishes to be remembered as the one who personally delivered its demise. On this point, sources close to the prime minister assert that he keeps in his desk drawer World War II-era letters from the U.S. War Department, which decline requests by the World Jewish Congress to bomb gas chambers at Auschwitz.

“…while Mr. Netanyahu may have faced resistance in the past to launching a preventative strike, current conditions at home and across the region may be the most optimal he has ever had. Since Jan. 2013, Israel has provoked Iran and its allies (at least) three times with airstrikes against weapons convoys destined to Hezbollah in Syria, albeit without any reaction. The incidents, which served to reduce fears of a regional conflagration, have clearly resonated with Israel’s various security chiefs, who have refrained from voicing any concerns about a strike on Iran, unlike their predecessors.



The EU is conducting itself in a manner that exceeds its routine anti-Israel inclinations and the matter is serious:

The European Commission, on behalf of the EU, has published a guideline for all 28 member states. It forbids any “funding, cooperation, awarding of scholarships, research funds or prizes to anyone residing” past the Green Line — in Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.

“The regulation, which goes into effect on Friday, requires that any agreement or contract signed by an EU country with Israel include a clause stating that the settlements are not part of the State of Israel and therefore are not part of the agreement.”

A senior official, quoted by Haaretz and others, calls this new ruling an “earthquake.”
“‘This is the first time such an official, explicit guideline has been published by the European Union bodies,’ the senior official said. ‘Until today there were understandings and quiet agreements that the Union does not work beyond the Green Line [the pre-1967-war border]; now this has become a formal, binding policy.’
“The official noted that the significance of the regulation is both practical and political: From now on, if the Israeli government wants to sign agreements with the European Union or one of its member states, it will have to recognize in writing that the West Bank settlements [and eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights] are not part of Israel…

“‘We are not ready to sign on this clause in our agreements with the European Union. We can say this to the Europeans, but the result could be a halt to all cooperation in economics, science, culture, sports and academia. This would cause severe damage to Israel.”


EU officials have the unmitigated gall to represent this as something that benefits Israel by preventing full boycotts.

I would point out that EU political decisions are clearly influenced by the large Muslim populations within the various member states.


Deputy Foreign Minister Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) charged today that with everything else, this new EU directive is “giving a tailwind to Palestinian intransigence.”

Finance Minister Yair Lapid (while supporting a two-state solution), emphasized that, “This decision signals to the Palestinians that there is no economic or international price to be paid for their continued refusal to resume negotiation; it leads them to believe that Israel will succumb to international and economic pressure.”

Lapid said he will “appeal to our friends in the European Union and explain to them that their decision damages the very end they are attempting to achieve, as it pushes peace farther away instead of bringing it closer.”

Eliyahu Shviro, mayor of Ariel, located in Samaria, voiced his firm objection to boycotts but then made a significant additional point: Palestinian residents of Samaria are employed in their thousands in Israeli industry. It would not occur to us to boycott them because of their religion or faith or where they live. The EU’s boycott could even undermine this achievement.


“Likud MK Ofir Akunis called the EU decision ‘unfortunate’ and added that ‘the land is not occupied, it is the cradle of the Jewish homeland.'”

Right he is, of course. What is important is for Israelis to know this and stand firm.

MK Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi) clearly agrees: “We have to be strong and determined. We will not operate on the basis of the caprices of Europe.”

And Gush Etzion Regional Council head David Perl, expressing real determination, called for the annexation of Area C [the area of Judea and Samaria totally under Israeli control according to the Oslo Accords, and the site of all Jewish communities beyond the Green Line]:

“Now is the time for the prime minister to stand up and apply Israel law on territory that is part of our homeland, and in so doing, fix an ongoing historical distortion.”

Perhaps most importantly, Minister of Defense Moshe Ya’alon said:

“It is not new that many countries in the world refer to Judea and Samaria as occupied territory, and according to this they act. We have our policies and will continue to abide by and according to our interests.”


There were MKs who called the EU decision racist and compared it to European policies towards Jews 70 years ago. And MKs who called for increased building in the face of this. Irritation was also expressed about the fact that this announcement was made on Tisha B’Av.

In some quarters there is the thought that this new EU directive is so pervasive that it will be unworkable and fall apart

On the left, of course, are parties, such as Meretz Party Chairwoman Zehava Gal-On, who think this is peachy keen.

All the above from a variety of sources, including:




And — aren’t we lucky! — Secretary of State Kerry has now returned to the area. He is currently in Jordan where he will be meeting with Abbas and Jordanian officials. But also with members of the Arab League, to whom he will provide an “update on Middle East peace.” This last unsettles me, as the League “contribution” is greatly destructive to Israel. And if Kerry is playing to them, it’s not good.

Kerry will, of course, then come to Jerusalem to meet with Netanyahu. His goal is a meeting between Netanyahu and Abbas; he is said to have a “plan.” There are varying reports about whether his aides, in his absence, have made any “progress.” But fairly consistently the Palestinian Arab comments have been pessimistic.


What is reassuring is this:
“Army Radio on Tuesday quoted a senior Likud minister saying Netanyahu did not plan to take far-reaching diplomatic steps in the peace process with the Palestinians. According to the Likud minister, Netanyahu’s main goal is to display a willingness to negotiate. The minister said that the government believes Abbas’ obstinacy will prevent progress toward peace. He also said that Netanyahu would not have Likud’s support to make significant concessions to the Palestinians.”



Virginia Henrico Mosque, A Recipe for Disaster

By: Sylvia Hoehns Wright
Right Side News

Henrico County VA, July 16 2013 – Described by eyewitness as “Islamic Center of Richmond attendees leaving the ICR property by means of private Hoehns driveway appeared that they were trying to force a Hoehns Lakeview Farm resident’s vehicle into the oncoming traffic of Hungary Road”, this event – one of many hostile activities reported by surrounding community residents to local law enforcement – initiated by ICR’s land agent Yunus Vohra and his colleagues resulted in a formal charge of disorderly conduct. (example in photo of parking jihad)

James Lafferty of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force who attended Henrico County public hearings says,

“I continue to be concerned about the role the DOJ (Department of Justice) played in muscling this through local officials. You (addressing local residents) are clearly right on principle. But this is not about principle. It is about the exercise of raw political power.

Typically, the only thing which holds us back is the fear of being called bigots by those who are wrong. We – all – benefit from a full public examination of what they (ICR) are doing and why they are doing it.”

Disturbed by queries from residents of his district, Majority Leader for the Congress of the USA Eric Cantor solicited DOJ’s opinion. As a result, Thomas E. Perez Assistant Attorney General respond,

“complaints related to this site appear to be the result of a failure to be respectful of the property rights of nearby property owners and the surrounding community’s expectation of public safety and welfare.

While Henrico County is operating under a consent decree issued by the United District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia related to a dispute to rezone property to build a mosque on Impala Drive, the Hungary Road site’s issues fall outside of this purview. Enforcement of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) should not interfere with the County’s standard regulations and procedures.”

Since public safety and welfare issues which were documented during a County Plan of Development hearing remain unresolved, area residents filed a community appeal. Although they only requested “approval for not simply a ‘place of worship’ but a SAFE place of worship for all whom frequent as well as reside in our community”, community pleas for adequate support parking and/or agreement to scale down ‘intensity of use’ to balance available vehicle parking; and amenities such as fencing and/or landscaping that will shield adjacent properties from lights/noise and/or enable adjacent property privacy rights – were again denied.

(LEFT) Mass exit from ICR property blocks use of single-lane private road Hoehns for its residents as well as endangers early morning commuter traffic on public road Hungary. (RIGHT) ICR land agent Yunus Vohra using his vehicle blocks residents as well as public services from exiting and entering Hoehns Lakeview Farms.

It was during this appeal hearing that Khader Allahbaksh, a member of the ICR Board, referred to his Indian heritage (pdf) and remarked “ICR will sweeten the Henrico community and strive to provide a safe environment“. Yet, more than a year after formal hearings, community residents do not find Allahbaksh’s prediction their reality.

Instead, their community is plagued by ICR members who choose to participate in activities which block residential homes from access to public services such as emergency, interfere with the safe use of the community’s school bus stop, result in actual as well as ‘near miss’ vehicle accidents, result in reckless endangerment to others; and specifically, entice others to trespass into private residential areas.


ICR land agent Yunus Vohra deliberately parks and vacates his vehicle (parking jihad) in single lane private road Hoehns to attend an ICR event prohibiting ingress/egress of nine non-public road front homes and access of public services such as emergency to these homes

When confronted concerning these issues, ICR leadership committee member Assadullah Kahn denied ICR’s involvement. Their land agent Yunus Vohra not only chose to deny but issued an email to Henrico County appointed and elected representatives, staff and area residents in which he called those who confront him and his colleagues, liars.

Area resident Paul Thorne of the Brittany Subdivision located across from the Hungary Road mosque site says:

“The Islamic Center of Richmond was approved for development of a 30,277 square foot building on the old Stone’s Nursery property on a 5.2 acre lot, on a very busy Hungary Road amidst surrounding quite neighborhoods. The Henrico Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors have unexplainable shown a ‘blind eye’ to concerns from the community over traffic safety, noise, and aesthetic appearance of the huge proposed ICR structure.

While as a community, we have rally as many voices as possible in an attempt to get Henrico County and ICR to slow down and look at our concerns more closely. This has not been an attempt to stop the Mosque, but to bring common sense into a situation that appears unreasonable for the area and its surroundings. We base our concerns on Mosque style events which are presently held in the site’s existing limited-use structures.”

Construction plans for the ICR Hungary Road Mosque have been resubmitted for County approval. Proposing to construct a phase I, approximately 10,000 of the overall 30,000 square foot structure, these plans are undergoing agency review and available for public review and input. Those interested, are advised to contact Kevin D. Wilhite, AICP project manager for Henrico County Planning Department at 804-501-4989.

To express comment to legislative reps, contact Richard W. Glover, Office – (804) 501-4208 Brookland District Supervisor and/or STATE reps John M. O’Bannon, III and Walter A. Stosch at their respective offices.

Sylvia Hoehns Wright, a spokesperson for her community Hoehns Lakeview Farms, agrees with the neighborhood assessment of this situation urging all to contact their legislative reps to ensure a SAFE community for those who dwell as well as travel through this area.


What Happened to the ‘Post-Racial America’ Dream?

Ask Marion

By Marion Algier – AskMarion

Many Americans voted for a Senator named Barrack Hussein Obama: half-black, half-white with a Muslim middle name, that they really knew nothing about in the hope that America, as a nation, could finally put racism behind her. Sadly his election for president in 2008 and re-election in 2012 did not accomplish that. In fact, in many ways it appears that the divisions within America have grown; divisions between parties, between religious and secular Americans, between racial and ethnic groups, between conservatives and liberals (or progressives), between traditionalists and those who want to fundamentally change America, as well as the gap between the haves and the have-nots.

For many Americans the bloom was off the rose far too quickly after the Obama Beer Summit incident and Holder’s decision not to prosecute the voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party and has gone downhill ever since. America in 2013 is not what most Americans expected or at least hoped for on Election Day in November 2008. And the division seems to have played itself out through the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman trial.

The entire saga of the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman encounter: the killing of a 17-year-old by a neighborhood watch captain (no matter who was guilty or their colors of skin); the intervention of politics and politicians into the process; the pressure to bring this case to trial even though they lacked the suitable evidence; the media circus; the race-baiting from far too many and now the acquittal of George Zimmerman by a very engaged jury and the pre-verdict suggestions of possible violence was and is a tragedy.

Most Americans want to move forward into an America that sees issues and not color; that sees people and not the color of their skin, but the people in power and pulling the strings say one thing outwardly while doing and creating circumstances that create the opposite affect, impression or situations.

Even liberals like Geraldo Rivera have said that President Obama should never have injected himself into the Zimmerman-Martin Case by making comments like, “If I had a son, he would look just like Treyvon” as people like Sharpton were screaming No Justice No Peace planting seeds and worrying many about race riots…

Americans overall remained calm and peaceful after the verdict, but California did not. There were demonstrations and riots from Los Angeles to Oakland. Many were prompted by the tweets of celebrities they followed, that have since apologized.

America and Americans have changed in many ways and there is an ever-growing chorus of conservative and independent black voices (see videos below). Just recently a Democrat State Senator switched Parties… and the video of this comments went viral.

Video: African American Conservatives Townhall – COMPLETE – Sean Hannity – Fox News – 6-21-13

Video: “Hannity” Special On African American Conservatives – COMPLETE – 4-8-13

Video: Dr. Benjamin Carson Wipes The Smile Off Obamas Face At The National Prayer Breakfast

But when you have Obama’s Department of Justice helping to organize, pay for, provide security and facilitate the ‘Justice for Trayvon’ protests in Florida (The Daily Caller has discovered supporting documents) that ultimately led to the farcical Zimmerman trial and then you have Eric Holder give a speech supporting the feelings of the protestors the Monday after the verdict instead of staying neutral and acting as a calming force, it is an uphill battle.

We are a country of laws that has been held together by a common culture and a history of becoming better, albeit sometimes slowly… One of the best straight forward discussions on the politics of justice comes from Judge Janine Pirro. Judge Janine is a straight shooter who does not change her opinions or comments for the crowd or political correctness. Definitely worth the watch!

Video: Judge Jeanine: “The Politics of Justice” in Zimmerman Trial – Opening Show Statement

The Zimmerman verdict is a chance for all Americans to work together and pray together to improve America and race relations; to open our eyes and hearts on both sides. Let us hope that politicians of all colors and creeds let that happen without anymore interference. And let us hope that the news media starts reporting all the news and reporting it accurately without their personal spin… and that celebrities with agendas think through the affects of their tweets and comments before making them.

The only way you get to a post racial America is through communication, honesty and love… not through lies, manipulation, and hate!! Remember the words of MLK. If handled correctly perhaps this tragedy could be another step toward the post racial American Dream?


Black on White crime hardly gets anyone protesting in the streets. Racial bias in the courts also a problem.

By: Nelson Abdullah
Conscience of a Conservative

The day before the Sanford, Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman of the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin, another crime victim lost his fight to stay alive but didn’t get much news coverage outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. Pat Mahaney, died suddenly on Friday morning, July 12th in North College Hill, a small town in Hamilton County, Ohio. Pat Mahaney, who is White, was 46-years old and had been suffering from the vicious beating he received 11-months ago by 6 Black teenagers who admitted they beat him because they were bored. To add insult to injury, the 6 Black teenagers, ages 13 to 14, were brought before a Black female Juvenile Court judge named Tracie Hunter, a Democrat, who only won her court seat after a year of controversy over numerous uncounted votes in the 2010 elections. Doesn’t that sound familiar?

WCPO-TV reported on 9/03/2012 on their web site:

NORTH COLLEGE HILL, Ohio – Six teens who allegedly severely beat a man because they were “bored” appeared in court Tuesday.

Hamilton County Juvenile Judge Tracie Hunter set new hearings later in September for each of the boys, ages 13 to 14. She has not yet set a trial date for the boys, who were indicted last week on one count each of felonious assault and aggravated rioting under the serious youth offenders statute, which means that while the teens are not being tried as adults and court proceedings will continue in Hamilton County Juvenile Court, the teens could face either a juvenile sentence or an adult sentence if convicted.

Four of the teens have been released from custody, while Hunter lowered the bond amount for a fifth teen and set a Thursday bond hearing for a sixth teen.

Does this preferential treatment given to 6 Black teenagers accused of a vicious, premeditated crime by a Black, Democrat judge represent racial bias? It sure seems so but where is the liberal mainstream news media lighting the bonfires of righteous indignation? Nowhere to be seen. In an another unrelated controversy involving Judge Hunter, the Cincinnati Enquirer wrote on May 21, 2013, that:

“Judge Hunter has notified (the Hamilton County Prosecutors Office) that she has declined to be represented” by prosecutors, Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor Christian Schaefer wrote in Monday court documents in one of the lawsuits.

This is the latest in an ongoing battle over the lawyers who will represent Hunter. Previously, Hunter, a Democrat, said she can’t trust Republican Prosecutor Joe Deters, whose office includes a group of civil lawyers who, by law, serve as the attorneys for elected officials.

Hunter was elected Juvenile Court judge in the 2010 election but only took office more than a year later, after she won a federal lawsuit that required some previously uncounted votes to be counted. When they were counted, Hunter received enough votes to vault her over John Williams and won the election.

The issues between both stories is a question of race and politics. Black and White and Democrat versus Republican. Juvenile Court judge Tracie Hunter, who is a Black Democrat, sentenced two of the six black teenagers who savagely beat Pat Mahaney to probation and community service. Where was the public indignation over that slap on the hand sentence? Where was the national news coverage? While one of the remaining four has pleaded not guilty, the other three teens have pleaded guilty to assault and await sentencing. But now that Pat Mahaney has died, the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s office has said that additional charges could be filed based upon the autopsy report from the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

Putting this all in perspective, there seems to be a blatant double standard in the liberal news media when it comes to crime reporting in America involving Blacks and Whites. When a victim of a shooting is Black, as in the Trayvon Martin case, and the suspected perpetrator is White, or even half-Hispanic as was George Zimmerman, the race is always made an issue. It mattered not that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. The news media twisted that scenario into outright fiction going so far as to doctor photos of Zimmerman’s bloody head and face and editing his 911 phone call. And the professional Black activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can always be counted on rallying their troops to stage protests. But when the victim is White and the alleged perpetrator is Black there seems to be a zone of silence dropped over the case to keep anyone from becoming alarmed. Another example that is even more horrendous happened in Brunswick, Georgia. Here on the web site of the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Black teens murder white baby for the fun of it
Young black thugs shoot white baby in the face at point blank range
Brunswick, GA has been rocked by the unprovoked hate crime murder of a 13 month old baby. The baby was shot right in front of it’s mother by two black teenage thugs. The shooter is believed to be between the ages of 13 and 15. His accomplice was even younger. The mother was also shot in the leg.

Skin color made victims a target
Brunswick, GA is about 60% black. The area where the murder took place is overwhelmingly black. The 2010 census shows the area to be 13% white and 73% black.

The media absolutely refuses to call it a “hate crime.” CNN called it a “robbery attempt.” NBC National News made their leading online story about how a white male is a suspect in killing another white male. The suspect is called a “white supremacist” because he is an ex-con and belongs to a white prison gang. NBC even enlisted the notorious fraudsters at SPLC to comment on how white prison gangs are a major threat to public safety. Think NBC National News would report that the unprovoked execution style murder of a white baby in a black neighborhood is a “hate crime?”

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Police arrested two teenagers Friday who are suspected in the shooting death of a 13-month-old baby in a stroller and wounding the baby’s mother during an attempted robbery.

Seventeen-year-old De’Marquis Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile, Police Chief Tobe Green said.

There is no doubt in my mind that there is true evil running rampant in our streets today but while some consider it a social issue involving the lack of diversity or poverty or black skin-privilege, there really is a problem in America with the editors and publishers of our news media who make a career out of covering up the threats to our society. Whatever excuse they have, be it political correctness or affirmative action or personal bias – bad news that involves Blacks, Muslims, Communists, Democrats or anything against American interests is just not newsworthy to the mainstream media. Maybe they are the real problem that needs to fixed first.

Political Correctness: Bring Me the Head of George Zimmerman!

By: Lloyd Marcus

I was elated upon hearing the not guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trial. It gave me hope that America has not yet totally succumb to the tyranny of Political Correctness. It is refreshing that the jury was not willing to sacrifice the life of an innocent man on the alter in worship of Political Correctness enforced by the mainstream media and the Obama Administration.

Yes, the Obama Administration unlawfully conspired to “get George Zimmerman”. http://bit.ly/18ewTN0 PC wanted this one, big time! PC sent out a clarion call to its enforcers, Bring me the head of George Zimmerman!

Thank God that there were six reasonable and principled persons on that jury who had the courage to say no in defiance of PC.

Despite having the ability to jump out of the pot of water at anytime, a frog allowed itself to be boiled to death; deceived because the temperature of the water was raised incrementally.

The American people are making a similar fatal error by its passive incremental submission to Political Correctness. PC is well on its way of becoming our tyrannical dictator; nullifying freedom of speech, trumping common sense and dictating our behavior. As I said, I thought George Zimmerman was toast.

Do you think I am exaggerating about the iron fist of Political Correctness? I dare you to step into the national arena and espouse an opinion not in sync with mainstream media consensus. Retaliation by PC enforcers (mainstream media) will be swift, merciless and vicious. They will humiliate and destroy you.

Incrementally bullied into submission, Americans are well aware of the issues they are not allowed to talk about and PC sacred cows they are forbidden to challenge.

Just like the bully in elementary school who threatened to beat you up for not surrendering your lunch money, be prepared to suffer a severe beating for not surrendering your freedom of speech to PC. Whether in the school yard or in the national arena, every surrender empowers bullies. Defending your God given freedom and dignity is worth risking getting your butt kicked.

Tenth grader and six foot tall football star Brutus beat me up. I was a small seventh grader who instinctively refused to be bullied by Brutus. Amazingly, I won Brutus’ respect and we became friends.

It has been infuriating witnessing the media passionately hunting an innocent man to be sacrificed to their god, PC. Frustrated by the lack of evidence of criminal wrongdoing by Zimmerman, the mainstream media hoped the jury would be pressured into making an emotion-driven brain-dead ruling; void of facts, evidence and justice.

Talk about a tale of two opposing network coverages, Fox News coverage of the trial appeared to be fair and balanced. CNN’s coverage on the other hand was nothing more than a lynch mob on the jail house steps demanding that Zimmerman be dragged out and hanged. PC agenda driven hacks spoke out of both sides of their mouths claiming to seek justice while fanning the flames of racial hatred. PC enforcers threatened riots if the “white Hispanic” was allowed to walk. http://bit.ly/17TgvEW And what the heck is a white Hispanic? http://bit.ly/18bTCfV

But folks, the Zimmerman trial is much, much bigger than George Zimmerman. Legal experts have admitted that had the MSM and Obama Administration not made the tragic fatal altercation about race, Zimmerman would not have been charged.

Zimmerman being found not guilty is a wonderful thing for America. Had PC been allowed to dictate Zimmerman’s fate rather than the evidence, it would have marked a dark day in America; further empowering PC to reign supreme as an evil tyrannical dictator.

Shame on CNN and other mainstream media for irresponsibly promoting the lie that Zimmerman is a prime example that America is still a racist nation – where racist white men routinely kill young black men and get away with it. CNN should bear some responsibility for any riots resulting from the verdict.

The MSM hates it when truth upsets the apple cart of their narrative. Do you know who really kills black males in America? Answer: Black males. http://bit.ly/UvLa18

Sorry PC, but here is another truth that dispels your narrative that blacks are routinely attacked by whites. Statistically, blacks are 50 times more likely to assault whites than vice versa. http://bit.ly/3LIVZP

These truths serve to unravel the PC narrative that America is eternally racist and minorities are eternal victims. Thus, Zimmerman escaping with his head still on his shoulders is huge. PC is still pursuing Zimmerman. The NAACP has asked PC enforcer, the Department of Justice, to pursue civil rights charges against Zimmerman. http://bit.ly/13I4e4z

Folks, PC is totally out of control, lording over our lives. As I stated, had Zimmerman been sentenced to prison to appease PC, it would have been a dark day for all Americans – further empowering PC to imprison and enslave us.

The jury’s not guilty verdict for Zimmerman has given me hope that not all Americans have wimped out to PC. It confirms that there is still hope of turning our country around; winning it back from the tyranny of Political Correctness. Praise God!
