CNN Begins Fresh Campaign to Get Policemen Race-Murdered In the Streets
— Ace

Quick, give them a Polk Award.

Incidentally, if you're planning on going out tonight, plan for inconveniences and/or racial murders.

The refusal of grand juries in Ferguson and Staten Island to indict the cops who murdered Michael Brown and Eric Garner made this clear. So the powerful, beautiful and necessary outpourings that have disrupted this society's normal routine must continue and escalate on New Years Eve and into the New Year.

But in this society, cops who brutalize and murder are given the benefit of the doubt and are almost never punished in any way for their crimes. This is illegitimate and unacceptable. It must be STOPPED, and it's up to us to stop it! On New Year's Eve, we must act in many different ways to do just that.

Say in a loud, clear voice -- NO NEW YEAR UNDER THIS OLD SYSTEM! And -- WE CAN'T BREATHE! Bring your whistles and blow them loudly. Bring your signs and banners. Bring your signs and banners too. Figure out imaginative ways to say NO MORE to all these horrors.

As Obama always reminds his pressure squads, "Power never conceded anything without some inconvenience."

13 "I can't breathe." is a self-evident lie. If you can't breathe, then you can't say "I can't breathe." Also, Garner didn't die for another 2 hours -- of a heart attack. I used to think that there should have been an indictment over the Garner case. It's a very different case for many reasons. But I just can't give-a-sh!t because of these douchebags. Cannot give any sh!ts at all.

Yeah. let's just skip that for cops. Because some, er, pigs* are apparently more unequal than others.

37 Fascinating how these people cry RACIM at the very mention of the word "lynch," and yet they are the very embodiment of a lynch mob. They don't know the slightest thing. Nothing. They are their own enemies. They don't know that a lynch mob is a group of citizens outraged at what they perceive is an unfair verdict, so they want to take vengeance into their own hands. This is what lynch mobs were in the 19th century. It actually had almost nothing to do with race. The most common lynching victims even in the south were Italians, not blacks. The most common reason was that a suspect was either found innocent or had the charges dropped. That is what is happening now. The SAME MINDSET that produced lynch mobs is producing the Ferguson riots. And yet they see themselves as the polar opposite of lynch mobs.

67 I think everyone is well aware of the disproportionate crime rate of the black community versus others. Therefore, if the media wants to continually turn every situation in which a black is arrested or shot by a police officer into a front-page story as they did with Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Ezell Ford, we will see stories like this one pretty much every single day. But instead of pointing the finger of blame at the perpetrators, the mainstream media focuses on the police. Unbelievable but not unexpected by the left-wing media.

"One of the activists who helped plan the Michigan protest asked potential demonstrators to learn these lyrics posted to the group's Facebook page":

We ain't gonna stop, til people are free"

Yes, but the beauty of the new system is no math is required for the secret cabal picking the matchups such that the team they want to win the big game has the best opportunity to do so.

It doesn't really matter about points scored, yards gained or yards allowed, or objective things like turnovers and sacks.  Doesn't even matter if you win a bunch of games...it's all about how the Grand High Council feels about you when they sequester themselves away for an orgy of hookers and blow.

99 To hold on to the LIE that either Michael Brown or Eric Garner were "murdered" is bad enough, but to deliberately incite violence like this is beyond the pale. Have they forgotten about Antonio Martin? You know, the unarmed young black teen who was, well, armed? There was another unarmed armed victim, shortly after Brown but before Garner. They held on to that one too. ("He was pointing a sandwich!" "The gun with his fingerprints was planted!") It was such an interesting thing to watch because the narrative given by the accomplice (shot in the back, hands up don't shoot) was rushed into the media. I commented on it when it was happening. And that stuck. When the autopsies (how many were there? 42?) showed that he wasn't shot in the back and was likely bent over, as if he were running at the shots and that shots were fired inside the police car, well, the Fergusonians said, literally, "No evidence will convince us" they were wrong. Then Eric Garner came around. This was a much better narrative. Garner was older (over 40), there was video showing very rough treatment and something that looked like an illegal hold. The arrest, although in view of a large number of cops and with a black cop present, was over a trivial matter. Garner did not attack the cops... ...and yet he wasn't as much fun. He was an old guy who died, basically, because he was too fat to survive police procedure when resisting arrest. These guys want some race warriors. They want young, virile, angry 18-year-olds too stupid to realize how stupid they are and how they're being used. Who's going to be inspired by Fat Bastard selling loosies?

What an embarrassment. And I say this as someone who spent a lot of time in Boston for work and for pleasure when I lived in southern NH, which was the vast majority of my life, so I'm not automatically anti-Boston.

127 Dana Loesch and Beck both seem convinced there should have been a charge of manslaughter in the Garner case.  I think maybe possibly, but probably not.

But the real issue is those two Dana/Beck are so insistent ... Dana was tweeting like ... don't complain about Obamacare if you don't agree with me on this (forget her exact gripe on that).  Beck states he doesn't know all the evidence, and doesn't know what grand jury saw ... but still knows for sure there should have been at least a manslaughter charge.

"Stu" is more on the side of the cops.

Beck's bunch puts out some good stuff at times, but goes off the rails at times too.  Sometimes he seems to think he's prophesying for God or something, other times he's a capitalist getting rich off the "pledge our lives and sacred honor"  bravado.

I can be against cop public unions and rogue cops, and still not want anarchy, or federal control of local police departments.  If there is a broader Serpico style problem, it probably has more to do with the underworld than racism.

165 "It was such an interesting thing to watch because the narrative given by the accomplice (shot in the back, hands up don't shoot) was rushed into the media." I suspect that the massive holes in dear Dorian's recounting of events were a key reason why the Ferguson grand jury decided it was a "no-bill cause". Especially entertaining was Dorian's claim that the Gentle Giant couldn't possibly have attacked officer Wilson because, dontcha know, both of Big Mike's hands were chock full of multiple boxes of (stolen by strong-arm robbery) cigarillos. How's a guy supposed to throw a punch in that situmacation? Can't, like, happen, man. Then on the other hand there's the video of Big Mike leaving the store with one (1) handful of cigarillos in one huge hand, and the other empty hand clearly visible picking up the diminutive shopkeeper and hurling him into the display racks. Then the same empty hand balling up into a fist to threaten the storekeeper further. Oh, and Dorian in his sworn testimony, before being pressed on the point, described said acts of robbery and battery thus: "We went to the store to get cigarillos." That's it! The entire sequence of violent criminality at the store? Elided entirely from his version of events. The Scheme Team certainly did themselves no favors by putting Dorian up front as a star witness. Just as they blew up the Zimmerman case with their reliance upon Rachel Jeantel as the star.

BRASSTOWN, N.C. (AP) For most of the past 20 years, a live animal has been used in a small North Carolina town's annual New Year's Eve Possum Drop. But this year, following challenges from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the organizer says he'll no longer use a live possum.

The Brasstown event involves enclosing an opossum in a tinsel-covered plastic box and lowering it to the ground at midnight, then releasing the animal. PETA says the lights, noise and crowd can harm an possum's nerves and health.

A judge ruled earlier this month that organizer Clay Logan could use a live opossum if he got a state permit. But Logan says he didn't have time. Logan says instead he'll use a road-kill opossum or pot of possum stew.

It will be interesting  to  see  what happens in the playoff games.  I could certainly see huge, lopsided wins by Oregon and Alabama  (I seriously doubt the opposite would be possible), and then everyone can start arguing about how arbitrary  it was to decide who got the slots.

191 My father taught me to always know who's around you when driving. Many years ago on NYE we were on way home from party in south shore city & I always ended up driving, we were on Tobin Bridge & I looked in rear view mirror & saw car speeding & then spin out of control. I was fast & got my car out of the way. Since then I've chosen to stay home on this night. Thank God my father taught me to watch who is around me. I still glance in rear view mirror. Isn't it time to retire these protests? Police can't get violent & knock a few out because that will add more fuel to the flame. Arrest every single one. Disrupt Super Bowl is also planned. What a bunch of idiots. Religious leaders are going to lead that one, per WZ.

213 From what I've seen (never been to Times Square on NYE), the city has neat little cordoned-off squares of standing space. everyone entering these areas are subject to search. I thin (again, just going by what I've read), there are porta-potties around, but if you leave your zone you can't get back in. Looking at Earth Cam, there is already a large crowd up there. Hoping everyone stays safe.

281 My Boykin Spanel, now dead, use to tree opossum in our back yard.   She had what I call a possum bark.  I knew I would have to get up and kill the damn thing before she tore it to pieces. 


They stink, but after a quick slap against a brick wall, they calm down.  I think she treed over 20.  I live in the middle of CLT in one of  the nicest area.  They are fucking everywhere.  One of my neighbors, BA CEO, killed 38.

290 Knew a lady once who fed neighborhood cats and had a pet door. She didn't connect this with the possom that hung out in the area until she turned around one day to pick up a sandwich on her bed and found the possom had wandered in, hung out under the bed, then gone for the tasty morsel she'd clearly left out for it... She was online at the time. I have it on good authority people in four time zones jumped clear out of their skins from the scream...

292 277-Hand raised possum can be really sweet-the Fort Worth zoo had one in the petting area that would cuddle. Granted this was years ago when you could feed the hippos and the elephants (the elephant would stick it's trunk through the cage and tap the heads of children. It was amazing.) But in the wild? I wouldn't mess with them. We are staying in tonight, eating crack dip (chicken chili cheese dip) and Martinelli's Sparkling cider, and watching Fringe on Netflix.

When the outer layer of manure turns black & hard as a rock, you break it off, slit the opossum open, scoop out the manure inside; then toss the opossum in the trash & eat the manure.

319 Possums are not of this world. They are alien invaders. I've seen galaxies worth of them lying dead on the roadside, maybe a dozen that were actually alive. My theory is that they arrive from the Marsupia Nebula, scouting out landing strips for the Mother Ship, and are inexorably drawn to highways, where they are dispatched by Michelin/Bridgestone, thus preventing their takeover of Earth.

I loaded my Ruger Convertible Six with Aguila Super Calibri quieted rounds, and shot him in the head. He snarled at me and made that possum-face. I shot him in the head six times, and he was still making that face.

I know an old Kentucky-Tennessee borderer who used to hunt for all his food. Asked about it, he said their brain is too small for a head shot to kill them.

495 It's 33 degrees here in Manhattan. Times Square NYE is typically a symphony of crowd control. Meaning they have 'pens' - interlocking steel barricades in which the 'lucky' revelers are confined. The side streets are kept clear for emergency exits. This all starts very early, and the 'prime viewing areas' are closed off as they fill up. There are no public restrooms. Once you're there, you're there. If you leave, there is no re-entry. I am amazed that anyone even sets foot there.

509 LANSING, Mich. -- One of seven sites recently approved by the Michigan Historical Commission to receive historical markers includes a site where former terrorist-turned-professor Bill Ayers and the organization Students for a Democratic Society crafted the infamous "Port Huron Statement."

The Michigan Historical Commission, a branch of the state's Department of Natural Resources, approved seven new sites for historical markers this month, including a United Auto Workers camp outside of Port Huron in St. Clair County where the Students for a Democratic Society crafted their pro-communism manifesto known as the "Port Huron Statement" in June 1962, MLive.com reports.

The document was written by Thomas Hayden -- a 1960s counterculture radical and former husband of Jane Fonda -- as well as other SDS members like Ayers, who later founded the Weather Underground before turning to academia to become an education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

They're going to slip past security and go to a secluded area of the beach. After laying down the blanket, Barack is going to take Michelle's hand, escort her onto the blanket and motion her to sit down.

After half a bottle of champagne has been poured and enjoyed, Barack is going to reach into the picnic basket, taking out the baby oil. Michelle will laugh and shift uncomfortably as the oil is poured over her feet. Barack's hands will strongly massage the oil into her feet, teasingly moving up her leg.

563 "In a sane world, the enviro-left should be protesting IN FAVOR of increaser carbon dioxide emissions. If they get what they want, the world will become comparatively barren and lifeless." Yes. CO2 was as high as 8,000ppm in the deep past - up to 20X current levels. On the other hand, if it were to drop from the 270ppm pre-industrial level to 160ppm, plant life would begin to die. The earth has been trending colder and less hospitable to life for millions of years. If we're going to stay here, we have to engineer the climate in the best interests of life, and that means, among other things, more CO2.

570 Sandra Lee is getting PAID to live the Horde lifestyle. How much you wanna bet that a couple hours after the show was recorded, she tried to french the nutcracker tree-topper, lurched drunkenly into the tree and it all came crashing down in a maelstrom of gin and tinsel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dK21SZoXoa4

575 i grew up in the suburbs during the detroit riots. how'd those riots go? detroit is a waste area - a national embarassment and the prime example of failed socialist policy (look up the history of detroit on wiki, btw. lol.) . these polices always fail, because they are failed in their base assumptions. any place that tries to repeat these failed experiences will go down too. have fun asshats.

577 Could it be some kind of coded cry for help? Is our very own beloved Rain Man even now being eaten by opossums? Is that the meaning of the "cannibalism" quote? How will we ever plumb the depths of this mystery? Art Bell, where are you? This country turns its lonely eyes to you!
