Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn Fires White Officer for Refusal-to-Die Incident at the Hands of Racist, Black Berserker; Dead Racist’s Family Demands “Answers” (Read: Millions from White People, and the White Hero’s Blood); Flynn’s Mandate: De-Policing Rules! White Cops Must Flee All Potential Confrontations with Blacks


Dismissed, former Milwaukee PD Officer Christopher Manney. His offense: Refusing to permit Dontre Hamilton to slaughter him with his own weapon while white (hey, that sounds familiar!) (These captions are fast becoming boilerplate.)

Failed, racist, would-be cop-killer Dontre Hamilton (that also sounds familiar!)

Desperately pandering, Milwaukee PD chief Ed Flynn

Milwaukee police shoot, kill man at Red Arrow Park


A man is shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Red Arrow Park.

The brothers of a man shot and killed by police in downtown Milwaukee are distraught and demanding answers.

Flynn said he terminated Christopher Manney, 38, on Wednesday following an internal investigation.

WISN 12 News learned Thursday that Manney requested duty disability two days prior to his firing. Click Here to read more about what that could mean.

Flynn said officers were sent to Red Arrow Park twice on the afternoon of April 30 to check on Hamilton's welfare but had no physical contact with him.

Then, at 3:28 p.m., Manney, the beat officer for the area, responded to an earlier voice mail not knowing officers had already responded to Red Arrow Park.

When Manney arrived, he found Hamilton lying on the sidewalk near the Starbucks, Flynn said.

Flynn said Manney approached Hamilton, identified himself and asked Hamilton to stand up. When Hamilton stood up, Manney approached Hamilton from behind, reached under Hamilton’s arms, placed his hands on his chest to conduct a pat-down search and asked if Hamilton had any weapons.

As Manney began the search, Hamilton began fighting with Manney.

Flynn said Manney tried to use his baton to subdue Hamilton, but Hamilton was able to take the baton from Manney. Hamilton swung the baton at Manney multiple times and struck Manney on the side of the neck with the baton.

Fearing that Hamilton would seriously injure or kill him, Manney used his service weapon and shot Hamilton.

Flynn said Manney accurately determined Hamilton was an "emotionally disturbed person [‘He’s a murderous psycho!’], but treated him as a dangerous criminal [which he was!] instead of following his training and treating Mr. Hamilton as an EDP."

"It was an incorrect, wrong decision that placed him ultimately in legitimate deadly jeopardy," Flynn said.

Manney had been on paid leave since the shooting.

VIDEO: Hamilton's mother addresses firing of officer

While Hamilton's family called the firing a victory, they said their fight for justice is not over.

"There's no grief like a mother's grief. [Gimme a break!] Now that the name of the officer is out there, it's something you asked for for months. Does that give you any sense of relief?" WISN 12 News reporter Terry Sater asked.

"No, I'm not going to grieve until he's in jail," Dontre Hamilton's mother, Maria Hamilton, said. "I'm still angry because I feel like they're not being honest. Yes, it's a plus that he was fired, but he took a man's life, and like any other citizen would go to jail."

That's where Flynn said he disagrees.

"My inner cop is not dead. Every member of this police department has had to make critical decisions under pressure with insufficient information that could have gone wrong. Here's the point I want to make -- there's got to be a way of holding ourselves accountable absent of putting cops in jail for making mistakes," Flynn said.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said he agrees with Flynn's decision and that this based the police department's protocol.

The American Civil Liberties Union released a statement Wednesday afternoon saying, the chief's explanation of the firing was an important first step, but changes need to be made.

"To the extent that police department policies and practices contributed to an officer-involved fatal shooting, the MPD should change its policies and practices and not use the punishment of one or more officers to allow the MPD to escape its responsibilities," ACLU of Wisconsin Executive Director Chris Ahmuty said.

Mike Crivello, president of the Milwaukee Police Association, said, "The use of deadly force by an officer is a difficult decision that must be made accurately and instantaneously. The MPA is confident in the officer's training and trust the action taken was of necessity."

"The decision to terminate this officer is cowardice and certainly unfounded and unsupported by fact," Crivello said.

Dontre Hamilton's family has been waiting more than five months to find out whether the officer will face disciplinary action or criminal charges.

The Milwaukee County district attorney has not yet made a decision whether to criminally charge the officer.

The FBI has been brought in to help with the investigation.

The family said the marches will continue because they're still fighting for changes to Milwaukee police policies and procedures.

There's another march planned for Thursday from Red Arrow Park.

Manney worked in the Milwaukee police operations division and had been on the force for 13 years.

He routinely patrolled downtown and made headlines in 2012 when he got into a public scuffle with a clown. (Watch story)

The clown was squirting water on cars and would not stop when officers [ordered] asked him to.

How Obama is Gutting the American Military (Daniel Horowitz)

Obama’s Dyslexic Immigration Policies
By Daniel Horowitz
September 29th, 2014
Conservative Review

While everyone in the political world is focused on the elections and our involvement in the Syrian civil war, Obama has implemented yet another administrative amnesty for illegal aliens. This time he is using our military – the pride of the nation – as a visa mill to legalize his future voters. Congress has a responsibility to clamp down on this illegal and dangerous unilateral action.

Republicans in Congress will have two opportunities to address Obama’s administrative amnesty via military service. When Congress returns for the ‘lame duck’ session in November, they could potentially pass the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which oversees all of our military-related policies. They will also vote on the annual budget bill, which is set to expire on December 11. Republicans should not allow those bills to pass through the House unless there is a provision explicitly prohibiting the Pentagon from recruiting illegal aliens to serve in the military.

It is also likely that Republicans will have an opportunity to fight back against the lawlessness during the confirmation hearings of the next nominee for Attorney General. Nobody has been more complicit in rubber-stamping Obama’s lawlessness than Eric Holder. Now that he is stepping down, Senate Republicans must go on record refusing to confirm any nominee who does not publicly swear off administrative amnesty. Many Republicans believe that the president should be granted wide latitude in choosing cabinet officials, as long as the nominees are qualified. But anyone who refuses to uphold the law is inherently unqualified to serve as Attorney General.

Last Thursday, the Department of Defense announced a new policy allowing military recruiters to target illegal immigrants under the auspices of the Military Accessions Vital to National Interest, or MAVNI. According to the Military Times, MAVNI, which is designed to recruit foreign nationals with special language skills, would be expanded to include those here illegally but granted amnesty under Obama’s DACA program. Obama is literally creating his own laws by using his initial lawless action as the baseline.

Aside from the obvious problems stemming from lawlessness and encouraging illegal immigration, this particular act is even more pernicious given the inherent threat to our national security. The screening process for the DACA program is essentially a farce because 99.5% of applications have been approved.

Last year, Judicial Watch obtained a wealth of information through a FOIA request detailing how DHS ostensibly gutted all background checks for DACA applicants, including the requirement of a valid photo ID. Just this past year, scores of illegals have been apprehended from countries that represent a security risk. Now, any illegal alien with a shady background can be admitted into our military.

What is most appalling about inviting illegal aliens into our military is that it comes at a time when so many American servicemen are being forced into retirement. Thousands of soldiers from each branch of service, many of whom served valiantly in Afghanistan and Iraq, are losing their jobs due to Obama’s unprecedented downsizing of our military. Yet, these veterans will now have to make room for undocumented Democrats.

Sadly, this is not the only recent example of Obama’s moral and intellectual dyslexia as it relates to immigration, national security, and the misuse of our military. Several weeks ago, Obama announced that he was sending 3,000 soldiers to “fight” the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

In addition to exposing our soldiers to a deadly disease while treating them like health professionals and social workers, this policy is completely backwards as it relates to our national security. The focus of any effort to protect America from deadly diseases, much like defending against Islamic terrorism, should be securing our homeland and points of entry, not needlessly risking the lives of our soldiers overseas. Yet, amazingly, Obama has signed another amnesty order, staying all deportation orders for Liberians living here without visas.

In addition to those here illegally, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that roughly 200,000 people from countries stricken with Ebola are here legally on visas. Once again, our national security is being sacrificed on the pagan altar of political correctness and our military is being used as a guinea pig in this effort to fundamentally transform America.

Fortunately, our Founders already established checks and balances to protect against an imperial president. There are many candidates running this cycle as constitutional conservatives, but how many of them are committing to using the power of the purse to rein in these lawless actions?

Instead of standing for nothing and hoping for a miracle in November, Republicans must provide a bold contrast by putting our military, borders, and national security first.

The Death of a President: Fifty-One Years After the Communist Assassination of John F. Kennedy

By Nicholas Stix

Reprinted from last year.

The Death of a President: November 22, 1963, a Date Which Shall Live in Infamy
On This Day, 50 Years Ago, President John F. Kennedy was Assassinated by a Communist Traitor, Not by a "Right-Wing" Cabal



And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

Inaugural Address
January 20th, 1961

Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom - symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning - signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.

The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe - the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans - born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage - and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge - and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do - for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom - and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.

To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required - not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge - to convert our good words into good deeds - in a new alliance for progress - to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.

To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace, we renew our pledge of support - to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective - to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak - and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.

Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed. But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course - both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final war.

So let us begin anew - remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belabouring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms - and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah - to "undo the heavy burdens -. and to let the oppressed go free."

And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavour, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again - not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are - but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" - a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shank from this responsibility - I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavour will light our country and all who serve it -- and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.

The Death of a President
By Nicholas Stix

(Reprint, partly from 2009, the rest from 2006.)

In Dallas 47 years ago today, Communist and dishonorably discharged ex-Marine Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated 46-year-old President John F. Kennedy, shooting him from a window in the Texas School Book Depository building, as the President's motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, b. May 29, 1917, d. November 22, 1963.


Commemorative Essay from 2006

Forty-three years ago yesterday, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States of America, was felled in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist, dishonorably discharged, ex-marine. For most of my life, November 22 was commemorated as one of the darkest days in American history. In recent years, such commemoration seems to have been fading.

President Kennedy was riding that day in a motorcade with his wife, Jackie, Texas Gov. John Connally and the latter's wife, Idanell (1919-2006), and Texan Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Kennedy had come to Texas to shore up a rift among Texas Democrats.

As soon as she saw her husband had been hit with gunfire, Mrs. Kennedy showed herself willing to sacrifice her own life, to save her husband's. She threw herself across her husband, to shield his body from further gunfire with her own, as if she were a secret service agent, rather than America's First Lady. Alas, it was too late.

Gov. Connally also was wounded, and his wife, Idanell Brill "Nellie" Connally (1919-2006), helped save his life by "pull[ing] the Governor onto her lap, and the resulting posture helped close his front chest wound (which was causing air to be sucked directly into his chest around his collapsed right lung)."

Later that day, aboard Air Force One, Vice President Johnson was sworn in as America's 36th President.

On April 11, Oswald had attempted to assassinate rightwing Army Gen. Edwin Walker; one hour after assassinating the President, he murdered Dallas Patrolman J.W. Tippit, before being arrested in a Dallas movie theater. Two days later, Oswald was himself murdered by Jack Ruby, as lawmen sought to transfer Oswald from police headquarters to the Dallas City Jail.

Jack Kennedy has become, like his ersthwile fling, Marilyn Monroe, a Rohrschach Test, onto which people (particularly leftists) project their preoccupations. Thus do conspiracy obsessives project the notion that the President's assassination had issued out of a conspiracy so immense, including at least two assassins, with the identity of the specific participants – the Cosa Nostra, the CIA, Fidel Castro – depending on the imaginings of the obsessive in question.

Likewise has Kennedy's presidency been fetishized by leftwing obsessives and family retainers, who have turned him into a socialist demigod, who supported massive economic redistribution and radical "civil rights."

The best way of summing up the real JFK versus the fantasy version propagated by the Left and Kennedy courtiers since his death, is by comparison and contrast to President Richard M. Nixon, Kennedy's opponent in the 1960 election.

Kennedy has been portrayed as a leftwing saint and Renaissance man, who gave us or supported (or would have, had he lived) the War on Poverty, civil rights for blacks, and utopia. Nixon, by contrast, was a rightwing Mephistopheles ("Tricky Dick"), and a crude, racist, fascist warmonger.

Politically, Kennedy and Nixon actually had much in common. Both were unapologetic anti-communists in matters domestic and foreign. Nixon successfully prosecuted for perjury the traitor and Soviet spy, Alger Hiss (which inspired the Left to work tirelessly thereafter for Nixon's destruction), while Kennedy ("Ich bin ein Berliner.") was an unequivocal supporter of West Berlin against Soviet imperialism, and risked nuclear war, when he faced down the Soviets during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. (Due to the statute of limitations, Nixon could not prosecute Hiss for treason or espionage.) On the negative side of the ledger, Kennedy betrayed the Cuban insurgents who carried out the Bay of Pigs invasion, by withholding promised air support, thus turning the invasion into a fiasco.

Domestically, at least in fiscal matters, Kennedy was considerably to the right of Nixon. Early in Kennedy's administration, he signed off on what was then the biggest tax cut ever, and which set the economy on fire. In light of Kennedy's fiscal conservatism and belief in self-reliance ("Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"), it is highly unlikely that he would have signed off on a program for massive government welfare programs. The War on Poverty was the idea of Lyndon Johnson, who exploited the nation's mourning for JFK to ram his programs through Congress.

By contrast, Nixon introduced price and wage controls, a move that was far to the left economically of the Democratic Party, even after Kennedy. And it was Nixon, the hated "racist," not Kennedy or even Johnson, who institutionalized affirmative action. Note that over 30 percent of blacks voted for Nixon for president, over three times as high a proportion than ever would vote for George W. Bush for president.

For over thirty years, leftist Democrats have sought to tar and feather Nixon as a "racist" for his "Southern Strategy" of appealing to Southern whites with promises of "law and order." The presuppositions of the leftist critics are: 1. If one is not a leftist, one may not campaign for the votes of groups that may potentially vote for one, but rather must hopelessly chase after the votes of people who will never vote for him, thereby guaranteeing his defeat; and 2. Because the explosion in crime was primarily the fault of blacks, no politician may ever campaign on behalf of "law and order" (in other words, see #1).

Since leftists have long controlled the media and academia, no successful counter-movement has ever been waged against the Democrat Northern Strategy that continues to this day inflaming and relying on racist blacks for their votes and their violence.

If anything, Nixon was a stronger supporter of "civil rights" than Kennedy. When Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested during the 1960 presidential campaign, Nixon wanted to call King's parents in support, but let his advisers talk him out of it. Conversely, Kennedy let his adviser, future senator Harris Wofford, talk him into calling "Daddy" King, which resulted in Kennedy winning the black vote.

In August 1963, the Poor People's March, in which Martin Luther King Jr. would give his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, was almost shut down by the Kennedy Administration without King even getting to speak.

The march had been organized by A. Philip Randolph, the legendary socialist founder of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the nation's first successful black labor union. Randolph was planning on giving a radical leftwing speech written by Stanley Levison, a communist advisor to both Randolph and King, but as historian David Garrow tells in his biography, Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the President's brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, acting in his brother's name, threatened literally to pull the plug on the demonstration, were Randolph to deliver the planned speech. Randolph relented, and gave a considerably toned-down speech.

There is no record, to my knowledge, of Nixon ever censoring a political speech, much less one by a civil rights leader.

As for Southeast Asia, Kennedy got us involved in the War in Vietnam; Nixon got us out.

Kennedy repeatedly jeopardized national security, both as a naval intelligence officer during World War II, and while President, due to his obsessive womanizing. By contrast, even Nixon's sworn enemies have failed to find any evidence of his cheating on his beloved wife, Pat.

And as for the two men's intellectual status, Nixon was clearly superior. The notion that Kennedy was an intellectual the planned product of a PR campaign engineered and financed by the future president's father, Joseph P. Kennedy Sr.. The elder Kennedy got his son's undistinguished, pro-appeasement (echoing the elder Kennedy, who was a Nazi sympathizer) Harvard senior thesis, Why England Slept, published as a book, after having it rewritten by erstwhile family retainer, New York Times columnist Arthur Krock (whom JFK would later stab in the back, using future Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee as his tool of choice); later, the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Profiles in Courage, was ghostwritten for JFK by another family retainer, Theodore Sorensen, in order to give the young senator the "gravitas" necessary for a run at the White House. Working on behalf of JFK and Joe Kennedy, Arthur Krock campaigned relentlessly on behalf of the fraudulent work, and succeeded in gaining it the 1957 Pulitzer Prize for biography, yet another fraudulent Pulitzer that has never been rescinded.

Nixon, on the other hand, really did write a series of important books on politics. But although Nixon was a true Renaissance man, he was a Republican, and so while the Kennedy hagiography of the press, Hollywood, and academia would slavishly promote the myth of Kennedy as Renaissance man, in the same parties' corresponding demonography of Nixon, the last thing they were going to do was to give Nixon due credit for his very real intellectual accomplishments.

So, where does that leave us? Must we choose between the fictional but pervasive image of JFK as Renaissance man, socialist, and compassionate civil rights supporter, or Garry Wills' revised version, in which Kennedy appears as a ruthless, pathologically lying sociopath?

If we jettison our illusions about the political leaders we support being compassionate, kindly, fatherly (or insert your romanticized cliché of choice) types, and admit that the ruthless, pathologically lying sociopath has been a frequent Oval Office type, that still does not free us from the obligation of weighing the virtues of this sociopath against that one.

While it is ludicrous to speak of a man who inhabited the office for only two years and ten months as a "great president," John F. Kennedy had his moments. He gave us a tax cut of historic dimensions, stood up to the Soviets, founded the Peace Corps, and started the race to the moon that culminated in 1969, with Neil Armstrong's world historical walk.

Black males murder five year old white girl in Milwaukee. No national outrage
November 7, 2014

Where is MSNBC now?

Two black males in Milwaukee walked up to the home of a white family, in a majority black neighborhood, and unleashed a hail of gunfire. A five year old white girl was murdered while sitting on her grandfather’s lap.

Milwaukee police say there is no question the shooters were deliberating trying to kill people inside the house. At least a dozen bullets were fired directly into the house. There may have been a third person driving a getaway car.

The house was located in a census tract that is 77% black and 14% white.

The Milwaukee Sentinel and Milwaukee channel 6 have actually been trying to downplay the murder. They are falsly reporting that it was “a stray bullet.” That directly contradicts all the evidence found by police.

If the races were reversed, this would be the biggest news story in the entire western world right now. Imagine for one second that two white males walked up to a black occupied home, in a mostly white neighborhood, and opened fire.

Imagine a five year old black girl was murdered while sitting on her grandfather’s lap. There would weeks of national coverage. There would be documentaries. The story would be revisited by the national media over and over for the next ten years.

For decades, Midwestern black street gangs have used racially motivated violence against white people as gang initiations [actually, black gangs all across the country have done it]. The most common form is mob attacks on white college students. However, more and more gang initiations are targeting random white people for shootings. There have been numerous fatalities. Black on white hate crime violence is also surging due to media agitation over Ferguson. A panel on MSNBC even urged blacks to “make white people feel uncomfortable.” A statement that seemed to greenlight black on white hate crime violence.

The following list was compiled by one of my readers, Pax Romana, who posted it at the CofCC.

Antonio Santiago may not have been white, but he was white enough—his killers, De'Marquise Elkins and Dominique Lang, slaughtered him because they thought he was white.

"Another causality in a nameless war, being brutally waged nationwide; where few mourn for the vanquished.”..."Just another white person whose life came to a shocking, senseless, and violent end at the hands of a black individual, whose actions are ultimately protected from being too harshly judged because he belongs to a racial group whose collective failures are not to be noticed..."-Paul Kersey

What the list does not include are the names of their mothers, fathers, older brothers or sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents or other white adults who may have been raped, or tortured, and murdered with them, ....... at times in front of their eyes before they themselves were killed.

Their stories and final moments are what the most horrific nightmares are made of. All downplayed, or ignored by the Liberal MSM and Black Victimists.

Where is the Duke Lacrosse/Jena 6/Trayvon Martin/Michael Brown MSM, Jesse 'HymieTown / I spit in white people's food' Jackson, Al 'Tawana Brawley/ Freddie's Fashion Mart' Sharpton, Eric ‘My people’ Holder, and Barack ‘If I had a son’ Obama??

The 'Black Victimist' MSM has strived to makes sure that Emmett Till will always be remembered, just as they strive to makes sure that the names on the above list will remain forgotten.

ToriMae to Pax Romana • 12 days ago

Also Autumn Pasquale, she was 10 and the victim of pre meditated murder by 2 black brothers. They claimed they had bike parts and lured her to their house where they strangled her and left her body in a dumpster. One of the brothers is now free, because apparently he was covering for his brother. Nobody outside of Southern NJ or the the Philadelphia have heard of her. There was an article in Huffington post but I think it was about how one of the brothers supposedly had a learning disorder or some crap like that.

Pat Buchanan: Obama as Dictator

Re-posted as Nicholas Stix

Rogue President
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Thursday - November 20, 2014 at 7:27 p.m.

Asserting a legal and constitutional authority he himself said he did not have, President Obama is going rogue, issuing an executive amnesty to 4 to 5 million illegal aliens.

He will order the U.S. government not to enforce the law against these 5 million, and declare that they are to be exempt from deportation and granted green cards.

Where did Obama get his 4-5 million figure, not 2-4 million, or 5-7 million? Nowhere in law, but plucked out of his own mind, as to what he can get away with. Barack Obama just felt it was about right.

Thus does our constitutional law professor-president “faithfully execute” the laws of the United States he has twice swore to uphold?

Our rogue president has crossed an historic line, and so has the republic. Future presidents will cite the “Obama precedent” when they declare they will henceforth not enforce this or that law, because of a prior commitment to some noisy constituency.

We have just taken a monumental step away from republicanism toward Caesarism. For this is rule by diktat, the rejection of which sparked the American Revolution.

The political, psychological and moral effects of Obama’s action will be dramatic. Sheriffs, border patrol, and immigration authorities, who have put their lives on the line to secure our broken borders, have been made to look like fools. Resentment and cynicism over Obama’s action will be deeply corrosive to all law enforcement.

Businessmen who obeyed the law and refused to hire illegals, hiring Americans and legal immigrants instead, and following U.S. and state law on taxes, wages and withholding, also look like fools today.

Obama’s action makes winners of the scofflaws and hustlers.

Bosses who hired illegals off the books will also receive de facto amnesty. La Raza is celebrating. But, make no mistake, a corrupt corporate crowd is also publicly relieved and privately elated.

Immigrants who waited in line for years to come to America, and those waiting still, have egg on their faces. Why, they are saying to themselves, were we so stupid as to obey U.S. laws, when it is the border-jumpers who are now on the way to residency and citizenship?

When the world hears of the Obama amnesty, millions more from Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East will be coming. And if they cannot get in legally, they will walk in, or fly in, and overstay their visas.

Why not? It works.

That this action will be as much a part of Obama’s legacy as Obamacare is certain. The unanswered question is how the Obama amnesty will be remembered by history.

His aides think that it will be seen as a second Emancipation Proclamation. Perhaps.

But with this amnesty Obama takes custody of and responsibility for the entire illegal population. He is the patron saint of illegal aliens. And for what they do, he will be held accountable, as was Jimmy Carter for the Marielitos Castro sent and Carter welcomed.

If the amnestied illegals contribute to the drug trade and violent crime, that will be Obama’s legacy to his country. If they turn up disproportionately on the welfare rolls, exploding state and federal deficits, that will be Obama’s legacy.

If this amnesty is followed by a new invasion across the border America cannot control, that, too, will be Obama’s gift to his countrymen.

One wonders. Will poor and working class blacks and whites, Hispanics and Asians, welcome this unleashed competition from the amnestied illegals, for jobs where the wages never seem to rise?

In the four decades before JFK, the nation had a pause in legal immigration. During that pause, the Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews, Poles, Greeks and Slav immigrants who had come in from 1890-1920, and their children and grandchildren, were fully assimilated. They had become not only U.S. citizens, but also identifiably American.

The Melting Pot had worked. We had become one nation and one people, almost all speaking the same language, and steeped in the same history, heroes, culture, literature and faiths.

Today, in 2014, after an influx of perhaps 50 million in 50 years, legal and illegal, no longer from Northwest Europe, or Europe at all, but Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, of every race, color, creed, culture and language we seem less a nation than some mammoth Mall of America. An economy, but not a country.

Running in 2008, Obama said he intended to become a “transformational president.” With this decision, he succeeds.

He has accelerated and ensured the remaking of America. Now when the wives and children of the illegals arrive, and their extended families apply for and receive visas, and bring their wives and children, we will become the Third World country of Obama’s dream, no more a Western nation.

But then the community organizer did not much like that old America.

Leaving No Illegal Behind: The Top 10 Lies from Obama’s Speech Announcing His Illegal Amnesty for Tens of Millions of Foreign Criminals



Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Top 10 Lies from Obama's Nullification Speech
By Daniel Horowitz
November 21st, 2014
Conservative Review

“The one [a president] can confer no privileges whatever; the other [the king] can make denizens of aliens, noblemen of commoners; can erect corporations with all the rights incident to corporate bodies.” 

– Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 69

Make no mistake about it. Obama’s illegal amnesty will not just apply to 5 million individuals. It will apply by default to all 12-20 million illegals in the country as well as the millions more who will now come here to enjoy the permanent cessation of borders and sovereignty.

Lie #1: Every President has Taken Executive Action on Immigration: No other president has ever issued an amnesty of anywhere near this scope, created it out of thin air, or built it upon a prior executive action instead of a statute. And in the case of President Eisenhower, his executive action was to deport 80,000 illegal immigrants.

Lie #2: Illegal Immigrant Crossings are Down: Actually, this is the third straight year that border crossings have gone up, not to mention the entirely new wave from Central America.

Lie #3: It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here permanently: Under the royal edict, the work permits can be renewed every three years, and most likely, they will be renewed at the same 99.5% acceptance rate as DACA applications.  And once they get Social Security cards, they are going nowhere.  So yes, this is permanent.  And yes, they will be able to get green cards, which puts them on an automatic path to citizenship: “we are reducing the time that families are separated while obtaining their green cards.  Undocumented immigrants who are immediate relatives of lawful permanent residents or sons or daughters of US citizens can apply to get a waiver if a visa is available.”

Lie #4: Only 5 Million: Make no mistake about it.  Obama’s illegal amnesty will not just apply to 5 million individuals.  It will apply by default to all 12-20 million illegals in the country as well as the millions more who will now come here to enjoy the permanent cessation of borders and sovereignty.  Given the numerous options for people to become eligible for amnesty, ICE and CPB will be restricted from enforcing the law against anyone because each individual has to be afforded the opportunity to present themselves and apply for status.  There is no way those who were here for less than 5 years will be deported and there’s no way the new people rushing the border and overstaying their visas will be repatriated.

Lie #5: Deport Felons: Obama claims he is going to focus on deporting felons. Yet, he has done the opposite.  36,000 convicted criminal aliens were released last year, 80,000 criminal aliens encountered by ICE weren’t even placed into deportation proceedings, 167,000 criminal aliens who were ordered deported are still at large, 341,000 criminal aliens released by ICE without deportation orders are known to be free and at large in the US.  Again, this is cessation of deportations for everyone. They are leaving no illegal behind.

The GOP campaigned on stopping Obama. Will they? Watch now.

...the bureaucracy will be flooded with applications of illegals, and those are the applications that will be prioritized, those families who came here legally will have to wait longer to be united. There is no longer an incentive to enter the legal immigration process.

Lie #6: Don’t deport families: Obama is playing the family card. It works like this: people are encouraged to come here illegally, Obama grants them amnesty, then their relatives all get to come, even though they would otherwise be ineligible under public charge laws.  Yet, at the same time, because the bureaucracy will be flooded with applications of illegals, and those are the applications that will be prioritized, those families who came here legally will have to wait longer to be united. There is no longer an incentive to enter the legal immigration process.

Lie #7: They have to pay taxes to stay: Aside from the absurd notion that they would turn someone away for not paying taxes, almost every one of these illegal immigrants lacks a high enough income to incur a net positive tax liability.  Hence, by paying taxes, he actually means they will collect refundable tax credits!

Lie #8: Background Checks: Just the thought of a criminal background check of people coming from the third world on a lawless program is a joke.  But the reality is that Obama has already done this with DACA, and 99.5% of applications were approved, including those of criminals. 

Lie #9: Cracking Down on Illegal Immigration at the Border: Obama promises to beef up resources at the border.  But as we’ve seen over the past few years, what good are more agents if they are explicitly intimidated into turning a blind eye.  Moreover, there is no promise to build a fence or implement a visa tracking system, so any talk of enforcement is an insult to our intelligence.  Moreover, he is unilaterally abolishing the Secure Communities program, the only successful interior enforcement program left after he abolished 287g state-federal cooperation in 2012.  At a time when we are facing threats from Islamic terror and deadly diseases, this invitation to the world will present a security nightmare.

Lie #10: Scripture tells us, we shall not oppress a stranger: It’s great to see him quoting the Bible for once, but nice try.  There are different variations of this verse throughout the Bible, but each one uses the Hebrew word “Ger” to describe what Obama translates as “stranger.”  A Ger is a convert to Judaism.  The commandment was not referring to people who illegally migrate to a nation state.  And more importantly, it is downright offensive to Americans to insinuate that not granting them benefits is tantamount to oppression, especially given the fact that they have been the biggest recipients of our generous legal system.  Moreover, if there is oppression taking place it is to the American taxpayer and worker and those who suffer from gangs like MS-13.

Sessions Comments on President’s Impending Executive Amnesty Announcement

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee and a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement today after the White House announced that President Obama will lay out his unilateral immigration actions tomorrow, which are expected to provide legal status and work permits to 5 million illegal immigrants:

“President Obama previously said he could not issue an executive amnesty because ‘I’m the President of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.’ Well, apparently we now have an ‘Emperor of the United States.’ President Obama’s immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected: Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permits—which will allow them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans in every occupation. Congress must not allow this unconstitutional action. That means Congress should fund the government while ensuring that no funds can be spent on this unlawful purpose.”

Hate Crime in McMinnville, Oregon, Shines a Light on Obama’s Dystopian Plan for Anti-America


War crime victim Parker Moore

The war criminal formerly known as "Joventino Bermudez Arenas"

An Illegal alien, whose true identity is still unknown, murders a white college student; police call crime “random,” and refuse to reveal killer’s immigration status, while dead killer’s alleged family and Hispanic cheerleader “reporter” portray him as victim, while ignoring victim, and rev up lawsuit machine

By Nicholas Stix

The story below should about Parker Moore, a college student who was murdered by a foreign invader who used the alias “Joventino Bermudez Arenas.” It should tell of Moore’s grieving family and friends, and what he had done and hoped to do. Instead, the victim is mentioned in passing in terms of moral equivalence with his murderer and forgotten, by a Reconquista media operative who doesn’t even feign concern about him. She is concerned about the killer, whom she tries to transform into the real victim.

She interviews a man who uses the same last name as the murderer, and who claims to be his brother, but who may not be related at all. Local police have not been able to determine the identity of the killer, which means he was an identity thief. And if his name is phony, the “brother’s” name is likely also phony, as well of the then means of the other “siblings” in the house.

Everything we know about the person calling himself “Joventino Bermudez Arenas” involved crimes. He was illegally in the country, he was an identity thief, he worked here illegally, and he murdered a young American with a promising future. One thing that didn’t involve a crime: If his “family” is to be believed, while having lived in our country for several years, the killer had refused to learn a word of English.

When reconquista operative Adrianna Rodriguez promotes this cock-and-bull story, it is in order to lay the groundwork for an extortionist, illegal lawsuit. People who are in the country illegally, almost certainly themselves using stolen identities, are going to try and leverage their friend’s crime into a multimillion-dollar payday. And how much do you want to bet that Adrianna Rodriguez has already put the killer’s friends in touch with a reconquista lawyer for the Big Shakedown? Only in Obama’s America.

But it gets better. “Obama’s” illegal, unconstitutional mass amnesty, if he gets away with it, would have pardoned the killer and his friends for their crimes, and probably would have thrown in the murder, as well, on the house. For although “Obama” keeps on claiming that he would not amnesty criminals, he has been doing that all along, with no limit as to the severity of their crimes.


Man accused of killing Linfield football player was turning self in when police shot him, family says
By Adrianna Rodriguez |
November 18, 2014 at 6:22 PM, updated November 18, 2014 at 8:09 P.M.
The Oregonian

Hours after he buried his [alleged] brother, [illegal alien] Horacio Bermudez Arenas said he still doesn't know exactly what happened Saturday night between his sibling and a Linfield College football player that left the two dead.

Parker Moore, 20, was at a convenience store across from the college on Southwest Baker Street when police found him with multiple stab wounds. His assailant, 33-year-old Joventino Bermudez Arenas, returned to the scene and was shot by law enforcement who said he was holding a knife and did not respond to commands to drop it, sheriff's officials said.

Horacio, interviewed Tuesday at the family's McMinnville home after Joventino's funeral, said the family is hurting and doesn't understand why Joventino stabbed Moore, as witnesses have described. The deadly encounter between Bermudez Arenas and Moore appears to have been random, police have said.

"I'm extremely sad. I will never forget everything with him."

The family says Joventino returned to the 7-Eleven to turn himself in. They also say Joventino, who only spoke Spanish, would not have understood English-speaking authorities if they had given him instructions. [And whose fault is that?]

During the interview, Horacio described what he experienced Saturday night and said he believes any gesture with the knife was probably his brother trying to give up the weapon to police.

Horacio said he and Joventino returned home about 6 p.m. Saturday from work at the Holiday Tree Farms in Sheridan. After eating, Horacio went to sleep about 7 p.m. About three hours later his sister woke him, saying Joventino returned from 7-Eleven and said there was a problem and he was going to turn himself into the police.

Horacio said he looked out a window and saw a calm-looking Joventino standing on the other side of the street looking at the scene illuminated by red and blue flashing lights.

[Why would a man who had just murdered someone be “calm”?]

He yelled at his brother to get back inside the house but didn't get any response. Joventino began to cross the street.

[So, he tried to stop his murdering “brother” from turning himself in?]

Horacio said he ran down the stairs and went toward the 7-Eleven, then the sound of three rapid gunshots stopped him. He saw his brother lying on the ground with gunshot wounds to the stomach.

[That's the only good part of the story.]

"He went to turn himself in. That's honorable. Why did they shoot?" Horacio said he wonders.

[Oh, so he was an “honorable” murderer?]

The investigation into the deaths of Moore and Bermudez Arenas is ongoing, said Yamhill County District Attorney Brad Berry.

Three McMinnville police officers involved in the shooting were scheduled to meet with investigators Tuesday to give their accounts of what happened. Sgt. Rhonda Sandoval, Officer Brian McMullen and Officer Justin James have been on paid administrative leave since the shooting.

A key part of the investigation right now is verifying if Joventino Bermudez Arenas is who family members say he is, Berry said.
Investigators have not found any public records for Bermudez Arenas, he said. Knowing more of his past could help aid the investigation, he said.

His family said Tuesday the Joventino has no documentation from any country. [That’s impossible, unless he threw away his documentation.] Before coming to Oregon six years ago to live with two brothers and two sisters, Joventino, who is one of [maybe] 11 siblings, lived in California with his uncle.

Family members said Joventino lived with his parents in Guanajuato, Mexico, before moving to California. He told his family he wanted to return next year to Mexico, where he recently fixed up a house he had bought.

Gene Carson, the business' manager at Holiday Tree Farms, confirmed Joventino worked for several hours in the shipping yard the day of the stabbing.

Joventino was working his second harvest season, which usually lasts about six weeks, Carson said. An uncle works for [sic] at the tree farm year-round and other family members worked for the company, Carson said.

"It's a sad deal," said Carson, who saw the uncle briefly Monday. "I know the family is in complete shock; they didn't see this coming at all. Who would?"

Carson said he didn't know Joventino, but his impression from other workers was that he was a quiet, hard worker.

"It really makes you wonder just what caused him to do what he's accused of doing," Carson said.

[Nothing “caused” him to murder a man. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be murder. And that’s what Gene Carson, a fellow criminal, is insinuating—that somehow, it’s the law-abiding white victim, Parker Moore (remember him?), who is the real criminal.]

Family members they still can't believe Saturday night's events.

"For me, he was a brother and a friend," Horacio said. "We feel for the other family because they are suffering like us."

[No, they’re not suffering like you. The survivors of crime victims do not suffer the way the survivors of criminals “suffer.”]

We Can’t Change Mexico, but Mexicans Have Changed Us; How Much Do We Want to Carry Forward Our Western Ideals?

The New Dictatorship in Washington
By Diana Hull
June 15, 2012
Diana Hull Ph.D

And what should be known in all its detail, but is rarely mentioned, is that Mexico itself is certainly not a financial basket case, although it is surely a moral disaster. Financially, it is fine, with one of the world’s largest economies and the thirteenth largest gross national product. In 2010, Mexico had 86 companies on the Forbes Global 2000 list and was the first and only Latin American country to be included in the World Government Bond Index, a list of the most important global economies that circulate government debt bonds.

So why is the United States obligated to subsidize the education and future of illegal aliens, mostly from one of Latin America’s richest countries? Also, there has been little or no acknowledgement that since the U.S. has financed the education of illegal alien young people so far, the reasonable conclusion is that it’s now surely Mexico’s turn to accept them back home, where they can use their U.S. paid for education and experience, while contributing to the quality of their home country’s labor pool. More good would accrue to Mexico than to us, if illegal alien bilingual students went on to higher education, were trained in a scientific discipline, or prepared to enter a profession in Mexico.

But when, if ever, will the Mexican government’s demands on America’s taxpayers be satisfied? The answer may be never. That would take, on their part, a rethinking of Mexico’s misguided notions about a misfit between lower social class status, higher education, and success. The only reason for the U.S. to continue its tax-funded subsidies policy in dealing with Mexican nationals in the U.S. is that government, private business, and misguided philanthropy continue to look for votes, loyalty, cheap labor, and accolades in the sea of Mexican poverty. Yet, all the U.S.’s big favors and forgiveness shout is “big me, little you.” That will not work because envy can never be tamped down by inappropriate generosity, and over-the-top “do-goodism” tends to make resentments much worse.

Actions like President Obama’s will be the greatest benefit to Mexico via the billions sent home by illegals to their own impoverished relations. In this way our country’s working class citizens take on the philanthropic obligations that the Mexican government and the whiter and more educated classes in Mexico shun. Any claim that Mexico makes to be a democracy that cares about the welfare of its poor is a travesty, as well as the silly idea that those illegally here “live in the shadows.” The reality is that illegal aliens in the U.S. are mostly left in peace to enjoy SSI, health care, free school lunches, car baby seats, low income tax credits, Wal-Mart, Blackberries, and name-brand footwear.

So instead of Carlos Slim taking a pass on his own obligations to the Mexican poor, our message to him needs to be “we have helped Mexico enough and you need to improve your leadership skills more than your income. That also means making sure that your country reins in the violence that permeates the upper reaches of your government that is steadily falling further into crime and depravity.
And you and other Mexican billionaires need to explain to Americans why basic public infrastructure for poor communities and private philanthropy in Mexico is virtually non-existent or minuscule. Either poverty is so endemic that any solution seems impossible, or you, Carlos Slim and other Mexican billionaires, have no concern for your country’s future!”

Also consider that Mexico has a university system of its own, which the Mexican super-rich could also support with a few billion dollars, or enough to cover the extra expense of college educations for poor, U.S. college-ready Mexican nationals who have gotten a free U.S. K-12 education. Excuses won’t do because the National Autonomous University of Mexico, founded in 1910, is one of the largest universities anywhere. Hundreds of specialties are taught and twenty-eight “Faculties” award advanced degrees, including astronomy, with three advanced telescopes in Baja California. The university has 314,000 students and six satellite campuses in Mexico and is ranked 190th in the entire world and second best in Ibero-America in a tie between the University of Barcelona and the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The University of Mexico’s main campus, “Ciudad Universaria,” is a World Heritage Site, designed by Mexico’s best-known architects and filled with art by Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros. This is the world of affluent Mexico which is rarely shared with the lower classes.

Against this background of lavish higher education, in 1990 only 5 percent of Mexicans read books and periodicals, and 80 percent of Mexican farms have less than 25 acres, 40 percent less than 2.5 acres.

Does President Obama understand that Mexico is not wallowing in poverty and can take care of its own? And that refusal to deport also allows further penetration of the current murderous violence and drug smuggling that has reached new heights of criminality and brutality? That alone is more than sufficient reason to focus on keeping our doors closed. We must firmly resign as a safety valve for a government that is both a class-based culture and has a history of being a quasi-criminal enterprise. We can’t change Mexico, but they have changed us. How far we will go on our present path will be determined by our response to amnesties in any form, and how much we want to carry forward our western ideals.
