Maybe Obama Can Save the Republic With Hip-Hop




OBAMA THROWS “DOWNGRADE PARTY” AT WHITE HOUSE

Posted on Sunday, August 7th, 2011
By  Weekly World News

WASHINGTON -   For the first time in history the U.S. credit rating was downgraded – and the White House celebrated in style!
Standard & Poor’s announced Friday night that it has downgraded the sterling U.S. credit rating for the first time in the nation’s history.  The Obama Administration not only shrugged off the announcement, and held another barbecue party before the President headed to Camp David for more parties this weekend.
“We’re still AA+,” said Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary.  “An A+ is an A+, we’re still at the top of the class.  If we were downgraded to a B or B+ we would be concerned, but we’re still A rated!”
Obama’s had it’s second Hip-Hop BBQ in two days.   The President had Earth, Wind and Fire over to the White House along with Jay-Z, Beyonce and Oprah.  They all danced in a conga line around Tim Geithner, the Treasury Secretary, who seem unfazed by the downgrade.
“It’s a tiny downgrade, we’ll be upgraded soon.  It’s no big deal.  Have another mojito,” said Geithner to WWN’s Frank Lake.
S&P decided to lower the AAA rating, held by the United States for 70 years, to AA+ after a bipartisan debt deal signed into law this week failed to assuage concerns about the nation’s growing spending.
Analysts have said a downgrade could increase the cost of borrowingfor the U.S. government and lead to tens of billions of dollars in more interest costs per year. That could translate into higher borrowing for consumers and businesses, too.
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were at the White House “dancing barefoot in the Rose Garden.”
“The downgrade does not affect the White House,” said one White House insider, “we all just got 20% pay raises!”
Tom Hanks danced on a piano rug with Susan Sarandon.
“The president asked everyone to dance — and they did!” read a Politico account of the “Downgrade Party.”  The menu included barbecue chicken, ribs, hot dogs and salad.
Also present: Chicago pals, law-school friends, donors — and lots of kids of friends, who stole the show by doing dance routines to the hip-hop songs, in the center of the East Room.’
“This is the best downgrade party I’ve ever been to!” said one young White House insider.  “This is awesome!”

  1. Obama's priority all along was social engineering and redistribution. He is clueless. He was the first Black President that did not appreciate the value of green and I do not mean as in leaves.

    Tax cuts are what allows wealth creation. Allowing people to keep more of their own money is something that most of the world and U.S. Democrats just don't understand, but, as Obama's White House just recently admitted, the government does not create jobs.

    The best way for a strong economy is to have low taxes. Taxes fuel more government growth and truly drag economies down, especially if there is no check on spending. It's textbook economics. Couple that with an economy that can't get off the ground, a tax increase will be devastating. Obama, himself, said the very same thing when he was just a Senator voting "not present".

    The United States spends about 2/3rds of its budget on mandatory socialist/welfare policies that are growing at a fast pace.

  2. This is a political crisis as much as an economic one. However, in its fundamental essence, it is a moral crisis. During the twentieth century, practically all the traditional moral imperatives for the conduct of human affairs were thrown overboard. Situational ethics clouded the clear understanding of what was good and what was bad. This has led us into not being able to trust anyone any more, in particular our political and economic masters, and it is this deep malaise that has given us the stage setting for the current world situation. Only a return to the truth as a primary guiding principle will help us now.

    Several days ago you outright lied about human organ-harvesting rabbis. I gave you the opportunity to make good your claim. You obviously could not. Now, you misrepresent the facts of an Israeli military operation – one undertaken in self-defense after repeated bombardment by your brothers.

  10. Obama's election will forever be a stain on the main stream media that failed in its role to vet candidates thoroughly . If the press spent one tenth of the resources and time vetting Obama that they did vetting Palin he would never have been elected. He is a cipher. He is President Chauncy Gardner the semi retarded character played by Peter Sellers in the movie "Being There" whose simplistic comments appeared profound to his liberal audience.

    Well, the Iranians are no military threat to the United States, no doubt of that.

    Nor will they be, even if they had a nuke or two.

    Which they do not.

    In 2008 the Israeli shot and killed over 800 civilians. Civilians who were not even demonstrating, but were in their homes and neighborhoods.

    The only other country that behaves more ruthlessly, with regards civilians, Syria.

    Birds of a feather, nesting together.






    To anyone that reads Rat's Rants...

    He is a self confessed murderer. He has shot people in the back in central america while NOT in uniform.

    And bragged about it..

    This sub-human, has a history of distortion, and lies about Israel, jews and zionism. Rat has posted thousands of disgusting posts that for some reason this blog still keeps his name as a "bartender".

    When will this blog be honest and either remove his name from the door?

    I notice that this blog NEVER has given myself or Allen or SAM the power to post at will as it does a proven jew hating, israel bashing, zionist hating piece of shit!!!!

    One of the reasons that this blog has lost so many posters is that it continues to reward people like Rat.

    My friend, I want no such authorization. You may have noticed: I am hardly a regular. Rather, I post when something strikes me as needing validation or refutation. Usually, this has something to do with the misrepresentation of Jewish law or life. As you know, our law requires action on such occasions.

    Dear T,

    You might not have noticed that the post I posted did not mention you in any way shape or form.

    Please take your ego and put it back where it belongs... in your ass...

    As for your "name" you have had your name and demanded it be removed several times... I have never called for your banning....

    Your statement "all because I don't think we should give Israel military aid when they are one of the top ten arms exporters in the world."

    You are so full of shit I am surprised you can brush your teeth without toilet paper....

    Your rants against jews, israel and zionism makes you an asshole. Not your opposition to "military aid" to israel. And that as well is a fine point not worthy of "BANNING" you...

    You create bullshit for no reason other than to stir the pot...

    No one called for your banning, no one has a problem with your lack of love for jew, israel or zionism...

    It's a distortion... a misdirection and yes a lie...

    But you know that...

    You have stated you love to stir the pot...

    The truth?

    The arab and islamic peoples, Rat friends, are savages...

    No lie..

    they kill on a monthly basis more than have died in the entire israel/arab war in 40 years...

    Now to take rat's statement as truth?

    800 civilians died in gaza...

    so according to hamas's OWN value chart, that is worth about 1 israeli... (actually about 1/3 of an israeli)

    If hamas demands 3,ooo hamas members in israeli jails for ONE israeli gilad shilat then 800 gazans killed is actually quite understated..

    israel, rat has given you permission to kill another 2,200 palestinians to catchup to the prescribed numbers of deaths to be relevant...

    If israel killed at the same rate that the arabs killed?

    lol

    it would be a holiday....

  20. Hopefully it was an RPG, not a SAM7, that took down that shithook, in Afghanistan.

    That we were using the old and slow shithook and not Blackhawks or Ospreys in combat operations, an indictment of the leadership in that war zone.

    Recall, if you will, that it was the introduction of surface to air missiles, by US, into Afghanistan conflict that sealed the fate of the Soviet efforts there.

  21. The house sent two bill to the Senate, both of which were tabled and never received an up or down vote, as Reid said they would not pass. Now from everything I hear, including from the S&P executives, had either of them become law there would have been NO downgrading of our credit rating. So how is it the Tea Parties fault.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Because, anon, they sent over proposed legislation that never had a chance of passage, in the Senate.

    While the legislation that would have produced the $4.1 trillion in "cuts" that S&P was looking for never had a chance of passage in the House.

    The entire "crisis" and the after effects were caused by the Tea Partiers.

    Instead of $4.1 trillion in deficit reduction, they got $800 billion in "cuts".

    Kicking down the road any real solution to the spending and revenue challenges facing the Federals.

  23. If the Congress had passed a "Clean" debt extension and not made an issue of raising it, the rating agencies would not have cause to even look at the ratings.

    The Tea Partiers should and could have addressed the issue during the appropriations process, but passed on that.

    They were looking for headlines, not solutions.

  26. (Reuters) - The insurer AIG is suing Bank of America Corp to recover more than $10 billion of losses from a "massive fraud" on mortgage debt, deepening the morass of litigation faced by the largest U.S. bank.


    American International Group Inc, still largely owned by taxpayers after $182.3 billion of government bailouts, is the latest of a growing number of investors filing lawsuits to hold banks responsible for losses on soured mortgages that contributed to the financial crisis.

    The AIG complaint accuses Bank of America and its Countrywide and Merrill Lynch units of misrepresenting the quality of mortgages placed in securities and sold to investors. AIG said it suffered its losses on $28 billion of investments

    Romans 12:19-21
    Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave itto the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
    “Never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’”God is going to take up your cause and see to it that justice is done, you can lay it down. You don’t have to carry anger and bitterness and resentment and revenge. Indeed you dare not. Jesus warned that an unforgiving heart will destroy you in the end (Matthew 6:15; 18:35).

    Tax cuts are what allows wealth creation... but, as Obama's White House just recently admitted, the government does not create jobs...

    It's true tax cuts have created wealth, at least for some. As for creating jobs, it should be obvious by now that lower taxes do not automatically result in more jobs.

    It's textbook economics.

    The textbooks don't seem to be working very well these days. The Laffer curve is common sense written on a cocktail napkin. However, it's simplicity makes it worthless. At the extreme ends of the curve you get reductio ad absurdem and in the middle no one has ever defined what the optimum level of taxation should be (other than philosophically).

    It's easy to say low taxes create jobs but looking at the recent history of the US (the last 30 years or so), it is hard to prove the case, at least, on the macro level.

  45. Rule #2, as written by Colonel Robert Rogers, in 1757.

    Nothing new to the proper infantry tactics.

    Whenever you are ordered out to the enemies forts or frontiers for discoveries, if your number be small, march in a single file, keeping at such a distance from each other as to prevent one shot from killing two men, sending one man, or more, forward, and the like on each side, at the distance of twenty yards from the main body, if the ground you march over will admit of it, to give the signal to the officer of the approach of an enemy, and of their number, &c.

  53. It's easy to say low taxes create jobs but looking at the recent history of the US (the last 30 years or so), it is hard to prove the case, at least, on the macro level.

    When most of the economic texts were written, it was never envisioned that a country would voluntarily give up manufacturing. Low taxes can create jobs in China or Kansas. If you can buy the labor of one worker in regulated New York or ten in China with no regulations, no unions and no benefits, there is an obvious economic choice…that is what we have. All the low tax benefits go to the entrepreneur and China. The US is stuck with an unemployed worker with government welfare subsidies.

    It would make more economic sense for the economy to tax upper level earners higher and give the tax benefits to the enterprise. The entrepreneur would choose to leave the cash in the enterprise and not have it taxed as income. It is not a good deal for the government because they would collect less taxes. It would be much better for middle class earners.

  59. Referencing the work of Dr. Hess, providing a hand as an organ harvester for the State of Israel.


    Israel's military has admitted forensic pathologists once harvested organs from dead bodies - both Israeli and Palestinian - without the permission of their families.


    Four months ago Israel threatened legal action against a Swedish newspaper which published claims that Israeli soldiers had killed Palestinians to harvest their organs.

    But now, Israeli television has broadcast part of an interview with the former head of Israel's Abu Kabir forensic institute who has acknowledged pathologists did harvest heart valves, skin, corneas and bones from Israeli soldiers and civilians, Palestinians and foreign workers.

    Responding to the TV interview, the Israeli military confirmed the practice took place, but said it ended...

    I'd suggest O hire Dave Ramsey as his economic adviser and Treasury Secretary.

    Won't be easy but Dave's the man. He'll fix it in baby steps.

    Baby step one - The White House, VP and Congress go on a 'rice and beans, beans and rice, and water' regimen. This hurts I know but a necessary first baby step. No more booze for Biden.

    Baby step two - all the government credit cards get the scissors. This is a tough baby step also.

    Baby step three - Dave does an analysis of our assets and liabilities and we give up the losers and retain the winners, if any. Again a tough baby step.

    Baby step four is easier. Do away with all of the capital gains tax. This frees up trillions in frozen assets that people will be able to trade around again, stimulate the economy.

    Baby step five - bike when you can, drive used car if you must drive, for all government employees. No limos ever again.

    This is just a beginning, but Dave Ramsey would get the job done.

    There is a 600 ton nuke ...

    The AGM-62 Walleye is a television-guided glide bomb which was produced by Martin Marietta and used ... during the 1960s. Most had a 250 lb (113 kg) high-explosive warhead,
    some had a nuclear warhead.

    The designation of the Walleye as an "air-to-ground missile" is a misnomer, as it is an unpowered bomb with guide avionics, similar to the more modern GBU-15.


    So, we'd be down to 50,000 or so in the immediate blast area.

    A tenth suspect in the Spanish case has since died, and 10 other suspects have not bee located.
    Salvadoran officials have said it is unlikely that El Salvador's supreme court will vote to extradite the men to Spain.

  94. Suitcase nuclear weapons
    There has been no official information released on the existence of true suitcase or briefcase-sized nuclear weapons in either the U.S. or Russian arsenals. However, the Washington, D.C.–based intelligence-firm, Center For Defense Information (CDI), states that the US government produced a class of nuclear devices in the late 1970s which were small enough to fit into an actual suitcase or briefcase.[citation needed] Likewise, CDI claims that a detailed training replica—with dummy explosives and no fissionable material—was routinely concealed inside a briefcase and hand-carried on domestic airline flights in the early 1980s.[6][non-primary source needed]
    While the explosive power of the W54—up to an equivalent of 6 kiloton[7] of TNT—is not much by the normal standards of a nuclear weapon (the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II were around 16 to 21 kilotons each), their value lies in their ability to be easily smuggled across borders, transported by means widely available, and placed as close to the target as possible.

  102. Sarah to Iowa????


    Iowa GOP to announce “special guest” at Ames debate


    Later this week, Tina Korbe and I will travel to Ames, Iowa, to cover both the nationally-televised presidential debate on Thursday and the straw poll two days later. Our Townhall colleague Guy Benson will join us as well. That will bring its share of drama and intrigue, but the Iowa GOP may have a surprise up their sleeve before then, too. A few minutes ago, I received this brief e-mail from the state chair’s office:

    Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn will hold a media availability following the meeting of the Ames Rotary at 1pm [CT] today to announce an special guest attending the Iowa GOP/Fox News Debate on Thursday, August 11. Chairman Strawn will also give an overview of the week’s events including Thursday’s debate and Saturday’s Straw Poll. Interested parties should email cmills@iowagop.org.

    A ‘special guest’? That sounds rather interesting, given who has already declared themselves in the race — and who hasn’t. The two surprises with the most media impact would be Rick Perry, who’s reportedly very close to announcing his entry in the race, or Sarah Palin, who has a tremendous draw in Iowa. An appearance as a “special guest” by either would stoke their attraction for write-in votes on Saturday, as well as draw huge media attention to the event. It would also allow either potential candidate to make a big splash without actually having to participate in the event — and overshadow the rest of the attending field.

    Five rabbis are among those arrested for their alleged involvement in a huge money-laundering scheme, including the trafficking of human body parts, as a result of a 10-year investigation by the FBI in New Jersey.

    FBI officials said they had arrested 44 people including two mayors, major political figures and rabbis, part of the Syrian-Jewish community who are said to have laundered the money through their personal charities.

    The rabbis who have been charged include Saul Kassin, Grand Rabbi of the US Syrian-Jewish community.
    He allegedly helped launder about $3 million from fake Gucci and Prada handbags.

    One of the other accused men, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, was charged with conspiring to traffic human organs after officials said he had offered a witness’s relative a $160,000 kidney which he himself had acquired for $10,000.

    Officers raided synagogues, government offices and a Jewish school when making their swoop.

  117. Former CIA Director James Woolsey on Iran's Terror Threat


    James Woolsey, who was director of the Central Intelligence Agency during the Clinton Administration and has remained heavily involved in the intelligence and security arena since leaving that post, has a clear understanding of the threat posed by Iranian support of terrorism and its nuclear weapons program. Woolsey said, "Iran's threats should be taken seriously. The people who have the mindset that they're just rhetoric are the same types of people who in the late 1920's and early 1930's said that Hitler's Mein Kampf was just rhetoric.

    "With these crazy, highly ideological, totalitarian movements, one's best guide often to what they will really do if they get power is their statements that they issue in line with their ideology in order to rally their troops and get them enthusiastic. It would be very foolish and really quite naive to say that Ahmadinejad is just blowing smoke. I think he certainly would do it if he could."


    As Iran comes ever closer to completing its nuclear weapons program, the day when Israel and the rest of the world must deal with the awful reality draws near. Yet, instead of doing anything effective about this grave threat, the world is focusing on Israel instead. In some ways it's not surprising since in his Cairo speech, President Obama identified the Arab-Israeli conflict as second only to Al Qaeda as a threat to peace. But it's ridiculous! The Obama Administration and the UN are fully committed to creating a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.



    If some rabbis sold body parts they should be prosecuted. If it's against the law. Is it against the law to sell a kidney of one's own? Or were they getting them from the dead? I'm an organ donor myself. Anyway, if true, 10k to 160k is one hell of a markup.

    If rat would spend as much time ferreting out the good in the Jewish people as he does trying to dig up some dirt, his opinions might change drastically. But, he won't let that happen.....

    S&P had originally miscalculated -- by about $2 trillion -- how much an agreement Obama signed into law last week would lower the country's debt. Obama administration officials alerted S&P to the mistake Friday, but the ratings firm said despite the error, the US does not deserve its highest credit rating because the country has not taken sufficient steps to lower its deficit.

    Turns out Jackie O's "explosive" tapes are not as juicy as we thought. ABC News has denied reports in British papers claiming that the network is sitting on a recording of Jackie Onassis accusing Lyndon B. Johnson of orchestrating JFK's murder and admitting to an affair. "The tabloid reports about content of the tapes are total nonsense," the network's rep said. "ABC isn't releasing any content from those tapes until mid-September, at which time it will be clear how off-base these reports are."

It smacked more of some people needing to clear positions with fairly narrow exits to clear those positions, and that's why we got the price action that we did," said Stephen Roberts, economist at Nomura Securities.

    "This sort of situation needs to clear before we can form a base," he added.

    Royal Bank of Canada strategists added, "All eyes will now shift to the Fed's Federal Open Market Committee meeting Tuesday, with the market looking for any guidance/signals on the possibility of the Fed injecting any further monetary stimulus to help stem the current global growth confidence crisis."

    PHILADELPHIA — Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths “you have damaged your own race,” imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest “flash mob” - spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city’s tourist and fashionable shopping districts.

    “Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer,” Mr. Nutter, the city’s second black mayor, said in an angry lecture aimed at black teens. “Pull your pants up and buy a belt ‘cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.”

    “If you walk into somebody’s office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won’t hire you? They don’t hire you ‘cause you look like you’re crazy,” the mayor said. “You have damaged your own race.”

  151. The aircraft was large, modern and considered among the world's safest. But that night it was flying straight into a huge thunderstorm. Turbulence was extreme, and airspeed indicators may not have been functioning properly. Worse, the pilots were incompetent. As the plane threatened to stall they panicked by pointing the nose up, losing speed when they ought to have done the opposite. It was all over in minutes.

    Was this the fate of Flight 447, the Air France jet that plunged mysteriously into the Atlantic a couple of years ago? Could be. What I'm talking about here is the Obama presidency.

    When it comes to piloting, Barack Obama seems to think he's the political equivalent of Charles Lindbergh, Chuck Yeager and—in a "Fly Me to the Moon" sort of way—Nat King Cole rolled into one. "I think I'm a better speech writer than my speech writers," he reportedly told an aide in 2008. "I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I'll tell you right now that I'm . . . a better political director than my political director."

    On another occasion—at the 2004 Democratic convention—Mr. Obama explained to a Chicago Tribune reporter that "I'm LeBron, baby. I can play at this level. I got game."

    Of course, it's tempting to be immodest when your admirers are so immodest about you. How many times have we heard it said that Mr. Obama is the smartest president ever? Even when he's criticized, his failures are usually chalked up to his supposed brilliance. Liberals say he's too cerebral for the Beltway rough-and-tumble; conservatives often seem to think his blunders, foreign and domestic, are all part of a cunning scheme to turn the U.S. into a combination of Finland, Cuba and Saudi Arabia.

    I don't buy it. I just think the president isn't very bright.

    {…}

    ReplyDelete
  152. {…}

    Socrates taught that wisdom begins in the recognition of how little we know. Mr. Obama is perpetually intent on telling us how much he knows. Aristotle wrote that the type of intelligence most needed in politics is prudence, which in turn requires experience. Mr. Obama came to office with no experience. Plutarch warned that flattery "makes itself an obstacle and pestilence to great houses and great affairs." Today's White House, more so than any in memory, is stuffed with flatterers.

    Much is made of the president's rhetorical gifts. This is the sort of thing that can be credited only by people who think that a command of English syntax is a mark of great intellectual distinction. Can anyone recall a memorable phrase from one of Mr. Obama's big speeches that didn't amount to cliché? As for the small speeches, such as the one we were kept waiting 50 minutes for yesterday, we get Triple-A bromides about America remaining a "Triple-A country." Which, when it comes to long-term sovereign debt, is precisely what we no longer are under Mr. Obama.

    Then there is Mr. Obama as political tactician. He makes predictions that prove false. He makes promises he cannot honor. He raises expectations he cannot meet. He reneges on commitments made in private. He surrenders positions staked in public. He is absent from issues in which he has a duty to be involved. He is overbearing when he ought to be absent. At the height of the financial panic of 1907, Teddy Roosevelt, who had done much to bring the panic about by inveighing against big business, at least had the good sense to stick to his bear hunt and let J.P. Morgan sort things out. Not so this president, who puts a new twist on an old put-down: Every time he opens his mouth, he subtracts from the sum total of financial capital.

    Then there's his habit of never trimming his sails, much less tacking to the prevailing wind. When Bill Clinton got hammered on health care, he reverted to centrist course and passed welfare reform. When it looked like the Iraq war was going to be lost, George Bush fired Don Rumsfeld and ordered the surge.

    Mr. Obama, by contrast, appears to consider himself immune from error. Perhaps this explains why he has now doubled down on Heckuva Job Geithner. It also explains his insulting and politically inept habit of suggesting—whether the issue is health care, or Arab-Israeli peace, or change we can believe in at some point in God's good time—that the fault always lies in the failure of his audiences to listen attentively. It doesn't. In politics, a failure of communication is always the fault of the communicator.

    Much of the media has spent the past decade obsessing about the malapropisms of George W. Bush, the ignorance of Sarah Palin, and perhaps soon the stupidity of Rick Perry. Nothing is so typical of middling minds than to harp on the intellectual deficiencies of the slightly less smart and considerably more successful.

    But it takes actual smarts to understand that glibness and self-belief are not sufficient proof of genuine intelligence. Stupid is as stupid does, said the great philosopher Forrest Gump. The presidency of Barack Obama is a case study in stupid does.

  156. However, the Metropolitan Police admitted they were struggling with the number of incidents as rioters used social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook to plan their violence.

    However, much of the planning apparently took place on BlackBerry smartphones, which have a free messaging system. Polic are unable to monitor these messages, but Black–Berry's manufacturer said it would try to co–operate with detectives.

    Roy Ramm, a former Met commander, had earlier warned that the Met could lose control of the streets.

    He said: "That has to be a possibility and the Home Secretary and [Met] commissioner are going to have to make some difficult decisions." Mr Ramm added that by using mobile phones and social networks "these people can mass and change direction very quickly and the police tactics are being subverted".

    Last night more than 225 people had been arrested, the majority of them teenagers. The youngest was an 11 year–old, who was charged with burglary.

  157. Mr Godwin said that while the violence on Saturday was rooted in frustration over the death of Mark Duggan, who was shot during a police operation in Tottenham, later disorder on Sunday was "pure criminality".

    There were fears that tensions may rise further when the Independent Police Complaints Commission today confirms that a bullet that hit a police officer's radio in the incident in which Duggan died was a police issue bullet.

    Talks have been held with the organisers of Notting Hill Carnival, which takes place at the end of this month, as fears grow that it could become a focal point for violence.

    Police have already admitted that they had no choice but to allow looters to steal from high street shops on Saturday evening as they had to focus their attention on the dozens of burning buildings and rioting in Tottenham.

    Former Met commanders said the riots were unprecedented in their sporadic and spontaneous nature.

    Brian Paddick, the former deputy assistant police commissioner who was a sergeant during the Brixton riots in the 1980s said: "We have not faced this situation before.

    "In the absence of intelligence it is a major difficulty for the police, and the fact it is sporadic and widespread."

  159. Video shows white teens driving over, killing black man, says DA

    Jackson, Mississippi (CNN) -- On a recent Sunday morning just before dawn, two carloads of white teenagers drove to Jackson, Mississippi, on what the county district attorney says was a mission of hate: to find and hurt a black person.

    In a parking lot on the western side of town they found their victim.

    James Craig Anderson, a 49-year-old auto plant worker, was standing in a parking lot, near his car. The teens allegedly beat Anderson repeatedly, yelled racial epithets, including "White Power!" according to witnesses.

    Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith says a group of the teens then climbed into their large Ford F250 green pickup truck, floored the gas, and drove the truck right over Anderson, killing him instantly.

    Mississippi officials say it was a racially motivated murder. What the gang of teens did not know was that a surveillance camera was focused on the parking lot that night, and many of the events, including the actual murder of Anderson, were captured live on videotape.

    CNN has exclusively obtained that surveillance tape. The group of teens that night was led by 18-year-old Deryl Dedmon, Jr., of Brandon, Mississippi, according to police and officials.

  161. Another Dirty White Boy


    Michael Hance’s cold-blooded killing of such a young victim after stalking seven other people on a tidy suburban Akron street named Goodenough Avenue was, neighbors said, the culmination of a family and neighborhood dispute over a home that once belonged to his girlfriend’s parents.

    Hance, 51, had no criminal record before the killings late Sunday morning and his death in a shootout with police in Copley, where a flag flew at half-staff yesterday outside the home where the carnage began.

    Hance had recently become angry over residents’ comments about the property, where he lived with his girlfriend, Becky Dieter, said neighbor Carol Eshelman. About a month ago, Hance’s next-door neighbor Gudrun “Gerdie’’ Johnson asked Hance to clean up the property, which included a broken-down car on blocks.

    Johnson, 64, was killed in the attack, along with her husband, 67-year-old Russell Johnson; their 44-year-old son Bryan Johnson and his daughter Autumn, 16; Becky Dieter’s brother, Craig Dieter, and his 11-year-old son, Scott; and an unidentified girl who was slain while in a parked car with Autumn outside the Johnsons’ home.

    All that excitement for nothing: DNA tests from a new suspect in the D.B. Cooper case failed to match DNA from a necktie that the criminal left on the airplane he hijacked in 1971. While it doesn’t necessarily rule out the new suspect—the tie itself could have contained someone else’s DNA if, say, it were borrowed—it makes proof significantly less likely. The new suspect was first identified when a woman, Lynn Doyle Cooper, came forward to say she had childhood memories that suggested her uncle was the hijacker. She also provided fingerprints to the FBI, but those tests were inconclusive.

    There was no confession of murder, that is an outright lie.




    It's tough for you to undo the murderous bragging you have sown...

    We all KNOW you bragged about it...

    It's coming knowledge.

    As for the "big lie" theory of saying something over and over again til people to take it as fact applies directly to people of YOUR mentality stating anti-semitic rants over and over again...

    So you nazi embracing piece of lying shit? your constant anti-israel, anti-jewish and anti-zionist rants paint you as the very thing the "big lie" was created and used for Herr Rodent...

    You are a mental NAZI.

    I am NOT.

    Nor is Israel, zionism or Jews..

    They are NOT NAZIS, matter how many lies, distortions and misdirections you try to throw at the subjects....

    Israel's war record about NOT targeting civilians is the best in the world. No other government comes close...

    And it's enemies? (your friends?)

    ARE SAVAGES....

    That is a fact...

    You defend SAVAGES....
