Americans should know this about their president before more U.S. cities burn. #Obama #Ferguson #Baltimore #BlueLivesMatter

Obama’s disturbing record on “blue lives”…

“Gangs” in Baltimore continue to work together and target law enforcement professionals. This is a credible threat with national repercussions. What follows may raise eyebrows, but when President Obama publicly condemns this news, why should we believe him? His record for showing concern or having any empathy for “blue lives” is, at the least, disturbing. Here are some examples (references and sources are included in the comment section of the link posted below):

In 2007, Obama marched and shared a podium in Selma (yes, that Selma) with the racist militant New Black Panther Party (NBPP). Controversy over their 2008 endorsement of him for president would later have him scrubbing it from his campaign website (a sign of the “transparency” to come?) but make no mistake: Obama was and still is “tight” with the NBPP.

How “tight”? Look at the White House Visitor Logs. Or recall how, after Obama was elected, he allowed baton-wielding NBPP thugs to walk(!) despite the DOJ winning the case against them for intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place in 2008… the same Obama DOJ behind the organized protests for Trayvon Martin at taxpayer expense… the same Obama DOJ that “outed” Ferguson police officers’ and family members’ identities and addresses.

Back to Obama’s 2007 Selma campaign stop: when NBPP Minister of War Najee Muhammed publicly called for killing cops with AK-47s, Obama was silent. More recently, when the NBPP established a (George Soros-sponsored) presence in Ferguson, he was silent once again. Obama even met with protesters and told them to “stay the course.” Well, they did — many went to Baltimore, to riot and loot and set fires.

Obama has also never publicly denounced the repeated calls to murder Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. In fact, he met with his almost-weekly White House guest Al Sharptonthe same week Sharpton had his protesters in NY chanting about “wanting dead cops”… which they got when Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley brutally executed NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. And many supporters of Obama cheered. Wenjian Liu left behind his wife of two months, and his father. Rafael Ramos is survived by his wife and two sons.

This assassin Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley actually referenced Obama’s Big Lie of Ferguson (“Hands up, don’t shoot”) in social media before he pulled the trigger… the same Big Lie that OFA peddled to mainstream media. [OFA is ‘Obama For America’ morphed, post-election, into ‘Organizing For Action’].

Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley also ran with the Black Guerrilla Family (BGF), which has been identified by law enforcement as “the most politically oriented of the major prison gangs.” Yet, with all this information known, and an undercurrent of leftist-enabled racial strife, and our nation mourning two fallen officers, Obama BLEW OFF their Memorial because he was too busy vacationing in Hawaii.

Weeks before that, when an illegal alien (assisted, in part, by Obama’s immigration policies) killed two California officers, Sacramento County Sheriff Danny Oliver and Placer County Investigator Michael Davis, Jr., Obama was silent again. As American Thinker’s Jan LaRue noted in a November 2014 article ‘Obama and Holder Ignore Cop-Killings While Obsessing over Ferguson Shooting’: “Neither President Obama nor Attorney General Holder has expressed a word of outrage over the murders nor expressed sympathy to the families. Oliver left a wife and two daughters. Davis is survived by a wife and four daughters.”

Recall Obama’s pick for DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. The Senate would eventually block the nomination, but the choice itself, an advocate for an unrepentant cop killer, was a message Obama wanted sent to those who Protect and Serve… a dead fish wrapped in newspaper.

Law Enforcement Organizations (LEOs) banded together, citizens made their voice heard and Debo Adegbile was rejected, 52-47. Obama called it “a travesty”… and he was furious. 47 senators on the left agreed… the same senators who REFUSED to hear testimony from Maureen Faulker, widow of murdered police officer Daniel Faulkner. Meanwhile, his killer, Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal (aka Wesley Cook), became the left’s newest celebrity.

Note: The Black Panther Party and the New Black Panther Party are separate entities.

There is a reason why so many law enforcement professionals have gone public, either by making statements or writing SCATHING open letters about Obama and how he operates. Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., immediately comes to mind. Others have waited until they left public service before calling Obama out. Former FBI Assistant Director Ron Hosko and former FBI Agent K. Dee McCown are two such cases. Perhaps they know of Obama in the same manner that profilers “know” criminals. Or they’re aware of his record of retaliating against those who criticize him…

…because Obama is a vengeful president. (Recall the still-up-and-running snitch-for-Obama website dedicated to “help stop the attacks on the President before they start.”) Tragically, that almost says it all.

In his ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., warned of drinking from “the cup of bitterness and hatred,” something this president keeps doing. And he seems content with that till his term expires.

Until then, may God Bless and keep safe law enforcement professionals who “wear blue,” so to speak. They are, in a sense, the glue that holds our society together. #BlueLivesMatter. And may He Guide those dedicated to getting America back on track.

Looking back: Obama’s blameworthine$$ in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill

April 22, 2015

Five years later, in revisiting this disaster that occurred April 20, 2010, mainstream media conveniently forgets to mention the information below, and how it still points to the Obama administration — and Barack Obama personally — for having some culpability for the oil spill.

Hope that helps fill in some of the blanks concerning Obama and his administration’s role in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill. We already know that his lap-dog media won’t ever do that for us.

Justin’s Article Read on the Air by Rush Limbaugh!

April 19, 2015

Justin Trask Haskins

The relevant part of the clip starts at 17:55

Below is an article I wrote for The New York Post that was published on January 27, 2015. Amazingly, the famous (or infamous, depending upon who you talk to) radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh read my story on the air during his show, which just so happens to be the largest radio show in America. Thanks for the shout out Rush! If you’d like to hear the clip, it’s embedded in this post, and the story appears below:

Endlessly slapped by ObamaCare

“I’m sorry sir,” the polite Healthcare.gov customer-service agent said. “There’s nothing I can do. You’re either going to have to enroll in Medicaid or you’re going to have to pay the full health-insurance rate.”

“The rate you quoted earlier?” I asked. “That’s nearly 30 percent higher than my current insurance bill, I just can’t afford it.”

A response to a local news story, i.e., ‘Feds: Guardsmen tried to sell guns to cartel’

April 17, 2015

The news…

‘Feds: Guardsmen tried to sell guns to cartel’
http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/15/army-reservists-arrested-in-gun-sale-scheme/

A response…

It’s surprising that two men were arrested. Usually the Obama administration condones such activity, having gotten away with it themselves. Of course I’m talking about their illegal gun-running scheme dubbed Operation Fast and Furious that armed drug cartel scum who leave body parts behind as calling cards. Federal Agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata and hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens died because of it.

Some links (in rough chronological order) to back up what I’m saying:

Kent Terry: “Somewhere deep inside you must have some conscience; do the honorable thing and have some integrity as an attorney general. You have children, wouldn’t you want… justice for your children? Of course you would. These guns will continue to show up at murder scenes in the future, and I am sure you don’t want more blood on your hands. So I ask you: stop misleading my family and the American people. Stop obstruction of justice. My family has been through enough grief with the loss of my brother, and to have no answers for why [his blood was spilled] on this soil is upsetting to me and my family; our lives are shattered for the rest of our lives and will never be the same.”

Kelly Terry-Willis: “I do not find it a coincidence that Eric Holder chose now to resign after Judge Bates denied the request from the DOJ to delay the release of the Fast and Furious documents. I personally think Eric Holder was really hoping that the documents would never be made public to my family and the American people. Will we ever get the accountability for my brother, Brian, Jaime Zapata and every other person who lost their lives to the guns from this horrific scandal? I don’t know, but I have a serious gut feeling when we finally see what is in those documents….the dynamics of this investigation are going to change and hopefully the people involved are brought to justice. Eric Holder can run, but there will be no hiding. The truth always reveals itself.”

Closing paragraphs: [Quoting] Fast and Furious is one of ten possible gunwalking operations in five states, according to investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson.

At least one of those alleged DOJ operations, dubbed “Gangwalker,” was apparently designed to supply weapons to Chicago’s murderous drug gangs and drive up the number of gang-related homicides in that city, increasing calls for more restrictive gun control laws.

The next time you hear of someone attempting to claim that American citizens are responsible for “an epidemic of gun violence, ” be sure that you point out that the Obama Administration appears to have intentionally implemented multiple plots to smuggle weapons to criminal gangs on both sides of the border, hoping that the public would respond to their manufactured outrage with calls for more gun control.

At least 300 people have died so far as a result of Fast & Furious guns, including American citizens. [End quote]

Starting with the starters …

April 17, 2015

MLB.com beat writer Corey Brock on the #Padres: “But how about that starting pitching?”

Follow The Padres

We’ve talked (a lot) about the Padres revamped offense, and rightfully so. Through the first 10 games, the offense is notably better than a year ago and we’ve already seen the contributions of Matt Kemp and Justin Upton in the middle of the lineup so far.

But how about that starting pitching?

After Wednesday’s victory over the D-backs, Padres starting pitchers have a 2.44 ERA in their first 59 1/3 innings this year, which is the best mark in the National League and the third-best in baseball, trailing the Tigers and A’s.

The team will begin its third turn through the rotation on Friday when the Padres open a three-game series at Wrigley Field against the Cubs, but so far the early returns from the starters have been very good.

And consider that Ian Kennedy, the team’s No. 4 starter is on the disabled list. Odrisamer Despaigne has filled in…
