“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

The difference between vicious murdering IDF Occupation Police killing protesting teenagers in occupied Palestine for throwing rocks and how civilized police departments handle the same situation








  1. Racists in an apartheid state. There is no way that young Palestinian girl would have die like that if she were a Jew.

    Cold-blooded state-sponsored murder in the racist state of Israel

    1. Do you know she died ?

      I saw her being taken away on a stretcher to, I assume, the ambulance that had arrived.

      She was still moving then, both arms held in the air.

    2. Israel, as you well know, is not an apartheid state. Arabs sit in the Knesset....sit on the beaches....

      Gaza is an apartheid 'state-let', the Arabstinians are pledged to create an apartheid state if they ever get a state, which they do not deserve.

      Whatever happened to the Christians in Bethlehem, by the way ?

      Gaza and any future Arabstinian state are pledged to be apartheid, genocidal, militant, misogynist, racist, violent and aggressive and much of the rest of the Mideast, save Israel.

      It's tiring, the anti-Israel, anti-Jewish propaganda.

    3. Deuce doesn't show the civilized deaths caused by the civilized palestinians throwing rocks, firebombs and stabbings of innocents.

      He doesn't show the ramming by civilized palestinians driving cars, trucks busses into innocents..

      The civilized palestinians, have used terrorism to wipe out the jewish state. Murdering jews, arab, christian, black or white of those living (or visiting israel)

      Now that is civilized, no discrimination by the civilized palestinians...

      blowing up pizza shops, restaurants are civilized...

  2. This has been going on for decades in the face and back yard of the Muslim Middle East. European Jews, an invading and occupation force, generating future terrorists and given a green card by the US government.

    What normal human being would tolerate such daily injustice?

    1. The Jews of the middle east have been stabbed, tortured, raped and occupied by the occupying arabs since the year 640 ce.

      Deuce only focuses on the remnant of European Jews not slaughtered by the nazis (to which deuce blames the euro jews for not defending themselves)

      850,000 Jews from the occupied (by the arabs) lands of the middle east were forced out and into Israel.

      Long before one Jew came home to the pre-state of Israel from europe the arabs were murdering Jews, taxing them, and treating them as the apartheid oppressors that they are...

      deuce, why can you not admit that Israel's jews from the occupied arab world have rights also?

      Deuce cannot accept the fact that Israel is Jewish state, the historic homeland for a people.

  3. No real American would tolerate such treatment. No democratic government would survive based on this behavior.

  4. Are there any Jews in Gaza ? In the arab parts of the west bank ? Any where in the arab world ?

    No, and no, and no.

    What's happened to the Christians in Bethlehem ?

    Would any Real American tolerate this absolute ethnic cleansing ?

    But there are arabs living and working in Israel that vote, have members in the Knesset, sit on the beaches, shop in the markets, and don't seem to want to leave, as very few ever do. Why is that ?

    I'm going to bed, having been up all night and not wishing to get disgusted on this soon to be bright blue morning.....


  5. By your video of the girl we have to assume that she was shot by the IDF.
    I see them responding to a Medical Emergency.

    Would the Arab street do the same for an IDF soldier?

    It is more likely that the soldier would be killed and dragged through the street.

    Lets look at the full story of the Arab/Israeli conflict. For complete context.

    You want to eliminate any connection with the Bible.

    That's where it all started.
    And will end.

  6. There is no answer to the Worlds’ problems in religion. That girl, shot, bled out and dying was not helped by any of those uniformed thugs because she was not a Jew and the thugs were. Had she been a Jew, all human behavior would be seen in action to save her life.

    Religious bigotry and racism killed her. Had she been viewed as a human being, other human beings would have saved her and never shot her in the first place.

    It is a disgusting display of the inherent evil of religion, racism and arrogance.

    1. There is no answer to the Worlds’ problems in religion.

      If it is rooted in religion than that is the prism of which it must be looked at in order to understand better the centuries long conflict, imo.

    2. .

      No, it's not rooted in religion. It's rooted in nationalism.


    3. Wrong, Quirk.

      It all comes from the Koran.

      If you haven't figured that out yet there is no hope for you.

      Consider ISIS for instance....wanting a world wide 'caliphate'

      Grow a brain, Quirk, grow a brain.

      It's fortunate for us that there is a giant division in Islam between the Shits and the Suns.

      And Deuce's comment above about all religions is truly ignorant....

      The problem today is one religion, Islam.

      Where ever they are they are in conflict with their neighbors....Russia, India, China, the West, everywhere....

    4. Universalism is the answer, we are all ONE.


  7. The sad fact is that the IDF sucks at killing arabs.

    Iran, Syria, the Palestinians themselves and Hezbollah have killed hundreds of thousand arabs in the last 6 years, more than every single arab killed in 70 years by the IDF.

    If ONLY deuce's assertions were correct. Sadly there are MORE arabs today inside of Israel than existed in the entire region in 1945.

    1.2 MILLION arabs inside of Israel.

    In the Gaza strip the population has GROWN from 260,000 (including refugees) to a number of 1,200,000

    Wow the IDF sucks...

    Maybe if the IDF learned to kill like the rest of the world, including the USA, China or Russia things would be different

  8. It's funny actually Deuce blame the european jewish "colonies" in creating Israel and oppressing the natives.

    All the while he lives in America, a land that oppressed and genocided the natives...

    If you feel so strongly about the injustice deuce why do you stay in America?

    Do you support the rising up of the natives of the americas against the occupiers, such as you and yours?

    Or are you just a jew hating hypocrite?

  9. How about some nice civilized videos of the arabs throwing their civilized fellow arabs from roof tops?

  10. How about some nice videos of some civilized arab videos of suicide bombings?


  11. Deuce, why do you only show selected videos without any context?

    Are all arabs that are shot by the murderous nazi Jews INNOCENT?

    What would the cops in America do if confronted by the same violence?

    Let's look to Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love...

    Philadelphia Cops Shoot and Kill People at 6 Times the Rate of the NYPD

    But do we blame the cops or maybe there is some justification?

    Now of course, this is HOW the cop in Philadelphia handle it...

    Philadelphia Police Bombs MOVE Headquarters Killing 11, Destroying 65 Homes

    oday marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of a massive police operation in Philadelphia that culminated in the helicopter bombing of the headquarters of a radical group known as MOVE. The fire from the attack killed six adults and five children and destroyed sixty-five homes. Despite two grand jury investigations and a commission finding that top officials were grossly negligent, no one from city government was criminally charged. MOVE was a Philadelphia-based radical movement that was dedicated to black liberation and a back-to-nature lifestyle. It was founded by John Africa, and all its members took on the surname Africa. We hear from Mumia Abu-Jamal and speak with Ramona Africa, the only adult survivor of the bombing. [includes rush transcript]

    Now that's interesting.

  12. Look at our hosts own words:

    Deuce ☂Thu Jun 02, 07:12:00 AM EDT
    Racists in an apartheid state. There is no way that young Palestinian girl would have die like that if she were a Jew.

    Cold-blooded state-sponsored murder in the racist state of Israel"

    Actually the violence is NOT in the Jewish State, it's inside a war zone, outside of the Jewish state.


    Let's be clear, Deuce throws the terms racist, apartheid around like a fat man spreads butter on corn on the cob...

  13. Now here is a great example of how civilized palestinians treat jews they capture.

    Jewish Soldiers Lynched and Thrown to Blood Thirsty Masses Who Ripped Them Apart and Ate Their Organs

    In 2000, two IDF reservists were lynched in Ramallah by a mob of Palestinian savages. New info has been revealed: after they were hanged, their bodies were tossed to a pack of bloodthirsty rioters, who proceeded to tear their bodies apart with their bare hands and eat their organs.

    The Israeli government freed the Palestinian terrorist who gleefully waved his bloody hands after the savage murder of the two Israeli soldiers.

    The soldiers lost their way to their base on October 12, 2000, ending up in the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled city of Ramallah by mistake. PA police forces took the two into custody.

    Word reached local PA residents that undercover Israeli agents were being held in the building; some 1000 rioters reportedly gathered outside. The IDF declined to take action to rescue the soldiers; they were eventually stormed by the rioters.

    One PA terrorist, Aziz Salha, got to the soldiers first, where he brutally murdered them – stabbing, beating, and dismembering them along with other rioters. He famously then stuck his bloodstained hands out of the window of the room where the two were held, eliciting cheers from the crowd.

    Now, transcripts of the terrorists’ remarks recorded during those proceedings have been released for the first time.

    Ra’ad A-Sheikh, a Ramallah cop spotted a red Ford Sierra approaching the station. He asked the soldiers what they were doing in the city.

    “They told me they lost their way and they need to get to Beth-El,” he said. Beth-El is close to Ramallah and is home to several central army bases in control of the Judea and Samaria region.

    “I led the soldiers into the police station, after the crowds outside the station began pressuring me,” he claimed.

    The terrorist cop took the soldiers to the second floor of the station. “I took a length of iron pipe – about 25 centimeters or so – and went into the room where there were two reservists.”

    “I saw the soldier was alive and on his feet. I went over to the Russian soldier, and beat him with the tube I was holding in my hands. I then punched him in the head until the soldier began making gurgling noises.”

    PA policeman Tariq Tabesh also participated in the murder. “I saw a soldier on the floor, laying facedown, crying and saying things in Hebrew that I couldn’t understand,” he told investigators. “I hit him on the back three times.”

    Salha told investigators that he entered the fray after seeing a car with an Israeli license plate parked outside the police station. Israeli cars bear yellow license plates; PA cars bear white plates.

    Salha alleged that the crowd encouraged him to enter the station. “I saw an Israeli soldier laying there, on his stomach,” he stated.

    “I approached him and I saw a knife in his back right shoulder,” he continued. “I took the knife from the back of the soldier and stabbed him in the back two or three times, and left the knife in his back. Others in the room continued to hit the soldier in the legs.”

    “After stabbing the soldier, I put my hand over his mouth to strangle him. I saw that my hands were stained with blood and my shirt covered in blood at the bottom, then went to the window and I waved my hands to people in the yard,” he recounted.

    “Then I returned from the window and saw the other soldier lying on his stomach in one corner of the room.”


  14. As for deuce's wonderful video provided for by RT NEWS (PRAVDA)

    The 2008 Greek riots started on 6 December 2008, when Alexandros Grigoropoulos (Greek: Αλέξανδρος Γρηγορόπουλος), a 15-year-old Greek student, was killed by two policemen[1] in Exarcheia district of central Athens.[2] The murder of a young student by police resulted in large protests and demonstrations, which escalated to widespread rioting, with numerous rioters damaging property and engaging riot police with Molotov cocktails, stones and other objects. Demonstrations and rioting soon spread to several other cities, including Thessaloniki, the country's second-largest city. Outside Greece, solidarity demonstrations, riots and, in some cases, clashes with local police also took place in more than 70 cities around the world,[3] including London, Paris, Brussels, Rome, Dublin, Berlin, Frankfurt, Madrid, Barcelona, Amsterdam, The Hague, Copenhagen, Bordeaux, Cologne, Seville as well as Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, and the western Cypriot city of Paphos.[4] In cities far away from Athens, solidarity often was expressed as a peaceful informational protest, for example Sao Paulo,[5] it proved that people could spread the news around the globe, from San Francisco to Wellington and Buenos Aires to Siberia.[6] Newspaper Kathimerini called the rioting "the worst Greece has seen since the restoration of democracy in 1974".[7]

    Showing us video of the riot after the police shooting and KILLING of a 15 year old teenager is funny...

  15. Now of course the RT news? Pravda?

    How does Russia treat riots by enemies of state?

    The 1999 Russian bombing of Chechnya was Russian Air Force's military operation against the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria that was a prelude to the main part of the Second Chechen War. In late August and September 1999, Russia mounted a massive air campaign over Chechnya, with the stated aim of wiping out militants who invaded Dagestan the previous month.

    yeah baby..

    1. Until September 25, 1999 Russian warplanes had carried out at least 1,700 sorties since the bombing runs began. Russian command claimed that a total of 150 military bases have been destroyed, along with 30 bridges, 80 vehicles and six radio transmitters, while 250 kilometers of mountain roads were mined. In early October the Chechen President Aslan Maskhadov said some 60-70 percent of the bridges in Chechnya have been destroyed.

      The air strikes quickly crippled Chechnya's stationary and mobile telephone system and hit the Chechen television station. The electricity supply was also cut; in addition to its other consequences, the loss of electricity further crippled the Chechen administration's ability to compete in the information war.[4]

      The attacks were reported to have killed hundreds of civilians and forced at least 100,000 Chechens to flee their homes. The neighbouring region of Ingushetia was reported to have appealed for United Nations aid to deal with tens of thousands of refugees.[5] On October 2, 1999 Russia's Ministry of Emergency Situations admitted that 78,000 people have fled the air strikes in Chechnya; most of them were heading for Ingushetia, where they are arriving at a rate of 5,000 to 6,000 a day.

      Now that's the way to be civilized

  16. .

    I love it when these assholes say you have to step back and look at the context or even today when one of them says 'hey, read your Bible if you want to understand all this'.

    Context? They love to look at context until they don't. They justify cold-blooded murder because of 'context'. Yet, they will pull a single word out of an extended conversation on a different subject altogether and ignore the rest of the 'context'.

    The video I put up on the last stream of the boys being murdered while walking down the street should have shown all the context a normal individual in the West should need.

    It wasn't me that put up that initial snuff video from the last stream. It was some dolt who was trying to justify the cold-blooded murder of those teens. It had nothing to do with forests or trees or the Bible. It was a specific incident caught on film and put up by a guy who then tries to justify the cold-blooded murders.

    He is also the guy who continues to call for more of it. The same guy who whines constantly about being threated by another blogger here, even taking it to the police; yet, who is the only one here who is constantly wishing harm on others on the blog, and not only those here.

    i can only hope that someday, your grand daughter, wife, relative, is in a car, when some jihadists decide to do to them what they do across the globe.

    What kind of sick fuck comes up with a wish like that?

    They are all Sick fucks, the perps who commit the murders, and the enablers who try to justify and excuse their actions because of 'context' or the 'bible'.

    Really sick.


    1. The "boys" had been attacking the IDF for hours. they were not "boys" they were soldiers in a war.

      You are putting your own bias on them.

      They are proud solders of Allah against the Jews.

      You look at 15 seconds of video and you are the judge and jury.

      The entire context shows the "boys" to be using slingshots to try to injure the police/IDF.

      The very moment they don't have a slingshot the are shot.

      And you cry foul.

      Your lack of standards suck.

      If like when we bomb a ISIS member are you demanding he be in the actual active moment of an act of war or crime? Of do we bomb the target even if they are taking a crap, eating breakfast or such?

      You are vile.

    2. i can only hope that someday, your grand daughter, wife, relative, is in a car, when some jihadists decide to do to them what they do across the globe.

      What kind of sick fuck comes up with a wish like that?

      they kind that sees you as the suck fuck that you are.

      they kind that sees your justification for the murder of my family by the "boys".

      Look in the mirror you sick fuck.

      You are the one that has no reality.

    3. quirk: The video I put up on the last stream of the boys being murdered while walking down the street should have shown all the context a normal individual in the West should need.

      the boys?

      in the west?

      you are on crack

    4. Quirk: He is also the guy who continues to call for more of it. The same guy who whines constantly about being threated by another blogger here, even taking it to the police; yet, who is the only one here who is constantly wishing harm on others on the blog, and not only those here.

      I live in the west. SO I don't do the violence that the palestinians do. I called the AZ FBI to report a crime since I live in the west and do not believe in being a murderer.

      Rat, the poster who made threats, is of the mindset of the jihadists. he justifies and threatens just like them

      You justify and vilify the IDF for fighting a war against jihadists,

      You don't seem to get it that you cannot put your western bias on a war between Jihadists and others.

      You either very naive or very evil, which is it?

    5. .

      The "boys" had been attacking the IDF for hours. they were not "boys" they were soldiers in a war.

      You haven't a clue as to what these boys were doing for hours. The film certainly doesn't show any of it. At the time, there was no indication they presented a present danger to any Israelis or IDF soldiers. You are pulling assumptions out of your ass and trying to make excuses for that for which there is no excuse, cold blooded murder.

      Even if they were throwing rocks earlier. They certainly weren't at the time of the shooting. They had no weapons of any kind. Is that what the IDF rules of engagement are? What do you think would be the reaction if that film involved a police swat team sniper here systematically shooting people as they walked down the street regardless of what they might have been charged with?

      I called the AZ FBI to report a crime since I live in the west and do not believe in being a murderer.

      But you are certainly willing to excuse or even praise others that do the murders.

      You justify and vilify the IDF for fighting a war against jihadists,

      You are so full of shit you stink this place up. This isn't about the IDF. It's about some loose cannons in the IDF who consider themselves judge, jury, and executioner, or to put it in terms doug saxum might understand, god. You show your mindset with these type of stupid comments. You take any comment about specific Israeli policy as condemnation of the whole and in doing so you end up coming up with things like you bizarre excuses for what amounts to simple murder.

      You don't seem to get it that you cannot put your western bias on a war between Jihadists and others.

      Western bias? What you mean is western values. I admit I'm guilty of being disgusted by cold blooded murder. Evidently, that is something you will never be bothered by.

      You either very naive or very evil, which is it?

      And have you stopped beating your wife yet, WiO?


    6. Funny quirk,

      I guess the answer is your friends murdered my wife.

      Blew her out of the sky...

      you cocksucker

  17. Now let's examine the fine civilized South Korean police...

    In context...

    In the 1980s, many student activists in universities struggled against Chun Doo-hwan's dictatorship and the aftermath of the 1980 Gwangju Massacre. Park Jong-chul, the president of the student council in the linguistics department of Seoul National University, was one of those students. Detained during an investigation into such activities, Park refused to confess the whereabouts of one of his fellow activists. During the interrogation, authorities used waterboarding techniques to torture him,[4] eventually leading to his death on 14 January.

    The events surrounding Park Jong-chul's death was suppressed at first. However, the Catholic Priests Association for Justice (CPAJ), revealed the truth to the public on May 18, further inflaming public sentiment. CPAJ planned a June 10th demonstration in his honor.

    Death of Lee Han-yeol[edit]
    As demonstrations intensified, students in Yonsei University swore to take the field and demonstrated at the university on June 9. During the protest, Yonsei student Lee Han-yeol was seriously injured when a tear gas grenade penetrated his skull. In critical condition, he quickly became a symbol of the subsequent protests over the ensuring weeks. He finally died of his wounds on July 5, after the regime had agreed to the people's demands. Over 1.6 million citizens participated in his national funeral, held on July 9.[citation needed] He was buried at May 18th National Cemetery.

    So the video of the riots, in RESPONSE to the police torture and murder of their FELLOW citizen the police were CIVILIZED

    he Gwangju Uprising, alternatively called May 18 Democratic Uprising by UNESCO,[3] and also known as Gwangju Democratization Movement[4] (Hangul: 광주 민주화 운동; hanja: 光州民主化運動; RR: Gwangju Minjuhwa Undong), refers to a popular uprising in the city of Gwangju, South Korea from May 18 to 27, 1980. Estimates suggest up to 606 people may have died.[5] During this period, Gwangju citizens took up arms (by robbing local armories and police stations) when local Jeonnam University students – who were demonstrating against the Chun Doo-hwan government – were fired upon, killed, and beaten in an unprecedented attack by government troops.[6][7] The uprising eventually ended in defeat on May 27, 1980. The event is sometimes called 5·18 (May 18; Hangul: 오일팔; hanja: 五一八; RR: Oilpal), in reference to the date the movement began.

    The hypocrisy is amazing..

    1. .

      It certainly is.

      In South Korea, the 'rioters' are resistance protesters but in Israel they are jihadis.

      You condemn murder in South Korea but excuse it in Israel.

      You accusing others of hypocrisy is funny. Just not ha ha funny.


    2. You really are amazing.

      2200 stabbing attacks by jihadists, thousands and thousands of rock throwing, fire bombing of civilians and you still justify palestinians behavior.

      Like I said, you and your family deserve to get caught up in the violence you are excusing.

    3. .

      Once again, you prove yourself the village idiot. In your twisted mind, my condemnation of murder by some IDF asshole somehow translates into supporting Palestinians stabbing Israelis. You're an idiot.

      A sick idiot.


      Like I said, you and your family deserve to get caught up in the violence you are excusing.

      Only a sick toad like you would wish violence on others.

      Here's an idea. Why don't you get your kids together along with the grandkids and the wife and show them that snuff film you pt up and explain to them what a great thing it was that that IDF sniper did.

      Or have you already done that?


    4. Why doesn't America show the videos of the every shot that our troops take in the field?

      Where is the video of the drone strikes?

      Sorry Quirk, you are a prick.

      You advocate justice in murdering Jews, to which I say, fuck you.

      If you attack, with a rock, a slingshot, a knife, firebomb, auto be prepared to be shot.

      And I have said before, you support violence against Jews. Deuce scolded us for not fighting those that attack us.

      Never again means never again.

      You try to kill us?

      Die motherfucker DIE

    5. .

      Tell it to you grandkids. Show them the video.


  18. Here is picture of a typical "boy" that Quirk defends..

    Over 2200 attacks by these children...

    n September of 1928, a group of Jewish residents of Jerusalem placed a bench in front of the Western Wall of the Temple Mount, for the comfort of elderly worshipers. They also brought with them a wooden partition, to separate the sexes during prayer. Jerusalem’s Muslim leaders treated the introduction of furniture into the alleyway in front of the Wall as a provocation, part of a Jewish conspiracy to slowly take control of the entire Temple Mount.

    Many of the leaders of Palestine’s Muslims believed—or claimed to believe—that Jews had manufactured a set of historical and theological connections to the Western Wall and to the Mount, the site of the al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, in order to advance the Zionist project. This belief defied Muslim history—the Dome of the Rock was built by Jerusalem’s Arab conquerors on the site of the Second Jewish Temple in order to venerate its memory (the site had previously been defiled by Jerusalem’s Christian rulers as a kind of rebuke to Judaism, the despised mother religion of Christianity). Jews themselves consider the Mount itself to be the holiest site in their faith. The Western Wall, a large retaining wall from the Second Temple period, is sacred only by proxy.

    The spiritual leader of Palestine’s Muslims, the mufti of Jerusalem, Amin al-Husseini, incited Arabs in Palestine against their Jewish neighbors by arguing that Islam itself was under threat. (Husseini would later become one of Hitler’s most important Muslim allies.) Jews in British-occupied Palestine responded to Muslim invective by demanding more access to the Wall, sometimes holding demonstrations at the holy site. By the next year, violence directed against Jews by their neighbors had become more common: Arab rioters took the lives of 133 Jews that summer; British forces killed 116 Arabs in their attempt to subdue the riots. In Hebron, a devastating pogrom was launched against the city’s ancient Jewish community after Muslim officials distributed fabricated photographs of a damaged Dome of the Rock, and spread the rumor that Jews had attacked the shrine.

    The current “stabbing Intifada” now taking place in Israel—a quasi-uprising in which young Palestinians have been trying, and occasionally succeeding, to kill Jews with knives—is prompted in good part by the same set of manipulated emotions that sparked the anti-Jewish riots of the 1920s: a deeply felt desire on the part of Palestinians to “protect” the Temple Mount from Jews.

    Yep "boys will be boys"

    1. .

      After WWII, war criminals tried to say they weren't guilty of the individual inhuman acts they committed because they were just following orders. That we should look at the bigger picture and consider the context.

      It didn't work.


    2. The jihadis proudly say they are following the highest orders of all, Allah's orders....

      'There's a Jew over behind that tree....KILL HIM'

      Right from the koran....

    3. Sadly many nazis in the arab world were never tried convicted and executed.

  19. Sweet little 'Palestinian' kids do terror show at kindergarten graduation ceremony -

    They should all be in the mandatory care of some western or Israeli Family Services group.

    1. Then they might have a chance at a real life.

      It's all the same as back in the days of Martha Gellhorn, and long before. They teach them to hate.

      'They love hate. They eat, sleep, breathe hate...'

    2. "Q"nit Assault: Georgia,USA -

      Cops: Victim Battered With American Flag

      Burka-clad assailant jailed on three misdemeanor charges

      JUNE 2--A woman clad in a burka attacked a Georgia homeowner with an American flag that was flying in front of the victim’s home, police allege.

      According to cops, Aisha Ibrahim, 30, emerged Tuesday morning from a wooded area adjacent to victim Dami Arno’s home in Lawrenceville, a city about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta.

      Arno told police that Ibrahim--whose eyes were only visible--walked up to her mailbox and “pulled the flag out of it.” Armed with the flag--which was attached to a four-foot long PVC pipe--Ibrahim then advanced on Arno “in a threatening manner swinging the post and flag at her, hitting her with it,” according to a Lawrenceville Police Department report.

      As Arno’s two children sought to help their mother, Ibrahim “was able to get one of her shoes off” and struck Arno’s teenage daughter in the head. A neighbor subsequently “entered the fight” and was “able to help hold the suspect until the police department arrived.”....

    3. The assailant should have been charged with felony assault and perhaps attempted murder.

      Let her try to plea bargain down from the attempted murder change.

  20. So what’s up with Obama’s stammering attack against Trump ?

    posted at 9:21 am on June 2, 2016 by Larry O'Connor

    Did the Teleprompter go on the fritz or something?

    Jim Hoft grabbed this video of President Obama attacking Donald Trump in a speech yesterday in Indiana and the president has a bit of a stammering fit:


    Obama was specifically attacking the idea that Donald Trump would reverse course on much of the president’s agenda if he wins the White House in November. Hoft was good enough to provide a pretty accurate transcript of this moment:

    “If we turn against each other based on division of race or religion. If-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if-if we fall for, you know, a bunch of okie-doke, just because, you know it-it-it. You know, it-it-it-it-it-it sounds funny or the tweets are provocative.”

    This isn’t the first time Obama’s vocal tic has been brought to the spotlight. Many observers have pointed out that without prepared remarks displayed in front of him, the president often stammers and lets loose a string of “uh….”s as he appears to be searching for just the right brilliant combination of words to make his enlightened point about something.

    Thankfully, the president has many apologists who run to his defense at a moment’s notice. in 2011 the LA Times published an op-ed explaining the president’s vocal stylings when he’s in freestyle mode. According to Meghan Daum, Obama’s stammer is a manifestation of his superior intellect. I’m not kidding:

    It’s not that Obama can’t speak clearly. It’s that he employs the intellectual stammer. Not to be confused with a stutter, which the president decidedly does not have, the intellectual stammer signals a brain that is moving so fast that the mouth can’t keep up. The stammer is commonly found among university professors, characters in Woody Allen movies and public thinkers of the sort that might appear on C-SPAN but not CNN. If you’re a member or a fan of that subset, chances are the president’s stammer doesn’t bother you; in fact, you might even love him for it (he sounds just like your grad school roommate, especially when he drank too much Scotch and attempted to expound on the Hegelian dialectic!).

    To be fair, none other than intellectual giant William F. Buckley often employed this same characteristic when in the midst of forming a question for one of his guests on Firing Line. However, I don’t remember anyone jumping to his defense to explain that Buckley’s stammer was an indication of his extraordinary intellect. I remember Saturday Night Live brilliantly mocking him for it:


    No matter.

    It’s useless to try to explain Obama’s stutter as an example of the president’s alleged intellect or lack there of. Isn’t it more instructive to point to the subject that reduces this eloquent speechifier to a stammering joke?

    The mere thought of Trump reversing following him into the White House and reversing his agenda is the trigger for this mental melt-down. What does this tell us?

    Is the president starting to realize that Hillary Clinton may very well lose this November? Is he starting to face the reality that his radical agenda, achieved in main part through extra-constitutional executive orders, could very well be reversed in the first several days of a new administration?

    Or is it a basic, visceral reaction to the mere thought that he, a brilliant, gifted and transcendent figure in American history, could very well be replaced by a political novice so beneath him that he couldn’t even bring himself to mention his name?

    “You know he seems to do a good job mentioning his own name,” Mr. Obama said to chuckles in the Elkhart, Indiana audience. “So, I figure, you know, I’ll let him do his advertising for him.”

    Whatever the reason, it appears the presumptive nominee of the GOP is getting under Obama’s very thin skin. And isn’t it fun to watch?

    Researcher Discovers Walt Whitman Series on ‘Manly Health’

    Walt Whitman, the so-called “Father of Free Verse,” can now add “Self-Help Guru” to his list of literary accomplishments. A University of Houston graduate student last summer stumbled upon Whitman’s 13-part series, “Manly Health and Training,” lost for more than a century. Parts of the 47,000-word series were published in two papers under the pseudonym “Mose Velsor.” The series details Whitman’s take on a variety of healthy living subjects such as sticking to a diet regimen, surprisingly similar to today’s paleo diet. In another part of the series, Whitman recommends wearing shoes “now specially worn by base-ball players”—the modern-day equivalent of sneakers. Read the digitized document here.

    Fox News - The group behind the lawsuit against Trump University is a front for the Clintons, having paid them $900,000 dollars for a bunch of worthless speeches.

    I take no position on the merits of the case, except that a new Judge is desperately needed.

    And, the press should be taking a close look at the farcical international for profit 'university' of which Billygoat was President.

    At least all the dirty laundary is getting a good airing this year,

    Trump University was something of a piker compared to BillyGoat's educational efforts.

  34. U.S. Worker Perceptions of Hiring Activity Best Since 2008

    by Jeffrey M. Jones

    44% say employer is hiring workers and expanding workforce

    11% say employer is letting workers go, reducing workforce

    +33 Job Creation Index score highest to date, by one point

    PRINCETON, N.J. -- U.S. workers' reports of hiring activity at their place of employment are the most positive in Gallup's eight-year trend. Forty-four percent of workers in May said their employer is hiring workers and expanding the size of its workforce, while 11% said their employer is letting workers go and cutting the number of jobs.

    The resulting +33 Job Creation Index score is the highest monthly average to date, by one point.

    The Job Creation Index improved three points in May from April's +30. Gallup has observed at least a slight improvement in the index between April and May each year since 2013, and in most years since 2008. These regular April-to-May increases suggest employers ramp up their hiring when the summer months approach. The April-to-May increase in 2015 boosted the index to its previous high of +32, a level it sustained through October.

    From December 2008 through August 2009, during and immediately after the economic recession, more workers consistently reported a net loss of jobs where they worked rather than a net gain. By October 2010, the hiring outlook had brightened and the index reached +10 for the first time since the recession. The index hit +20 in April 2012, and +30 in September 2014.

    The latest Job Creation Index is based on interviews with 18,604 U.S. adults who are employed full or part time, conducted throughout the month of May. In addition to the 44% of workers reporting a net hiring increase and the 11% reporting a net hiring decrease, 39% of workers say the size of their workforce is unchanged.

  36. Big Win Over ISIS Could Mean a New War

    The fight against ISIS is succeeding, but ironically the wins scored by U.S.-backed forces raise tough questions about who exactly will rule when the terror group is gone.

    Troops fighting ISIS appeared to on the verge of another victory over the self-proclaimed Islamic State Wednesday, as they moved into a city that has served as the main thoroughfare for ISIS foreign fighters and weapons. But the potential seizure of the Syrian city of Manbij by U.S.-backed forces is only likely to set off a new battle for control—this time pitting Arabs against Kurds.

    The battle Wednesday reflected a growing problem for the U.S. and its push to train local fighters, even as those forces take territory from ISIS. Who exactly will govern those towns now? Will it be the Kurds who have led the fight against ISIS? Or will it be what some in the Pentagon have privately called the “token Arabs” trained by the U.S. to accompany them?

    Two defense officials told The Daily Beast Wednesday they don’t know....
