If you call a protest a riot, or a riot a protest……

What would you get? A Riotest? Not sure, but the Other McCain reports that a group of filthy Lenninists are looking to stir up trouble in Baltimore if George Zimmerman is convicted or is not convicted. Ptretty much any excuse to hold an anti-America rally

Jeff Quinton reports a story today with the headline, “Marxists to protest Zimmerman trial verdict in Baltimore.”  This “protest” will involve “activists,” says the Baltimore Sun, which reports that the “The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly” is organizing the riot looting peaceful demonstration, but evidently the Professional Journalist didn’t bother to ask, “Who is The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly”?

Of course they did not ask. Why should a reporter go to any trouble? Or maybe, maybe finding out who this group is was really hard or something?

Readers will be shocked at the profound mystery irresponsible allegationseasily discovered facts that Jeff reports about this outfit:

They have a “Solidarity Center” on North Charles Street just north of West North Avenue where they have some of their events. In fact one of these events this weekend is a birthday party for two activists:

Two very good reasons to party – Andre and Shauna’s birthdays! Andre Powell, who is a long time union and LGBTQ activist, Workers World Party organizer, and New Wave singer along with Shauna, a new Peoples Power Assembly

They are asking for donations at the party:

The Solidarity Center is suffering from the “summer lack of money blues” to pay its rent. As many of you know the Center has housed organizing for the Poor Peoples Campaign and many other campaigns. The Solidarity Center has opened its doors to a variety of different groups who have met and planned activities including Occupy Baltimore, SCLC, UPP, WWP, the Green Party and the families and victims of police violence.

Additionally, the only “Like” tha the Baltimore People’s Assembly makes on their page is the Facebook page of theBaltimore Worker’s World Party. The Baltimore WWP lists it’s physical address as the sam location as the People’s Assembly Solidarity Center.

It would seem that Jeff Quinton has uncovered vicious innuendo baseless rumors incontrovertible proof that the “Solidarity Center” and the “People’s Power Assembly” are basically fronts for the fringe Stalinist splinter group, the Workers World Party.

Just another group of Marxists looking to get some trouble started, and,a s usual the media is too lazy to actually USE their skills to uncover anything that might be important. Or maybe, they just think this is non news, you know, like all those Obama-related scandals?

 

Seven-year-old boy suspended for chewing pastry into a gun-like shape, sanity hardest hit

Oh brother!

A 7-year-old Maryland boy was suspended from school for two days for shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun, according to his father.

FoxBaltimore.com reports that Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, was eating a strawberry tart when he decided to shape it into a mountain.

“All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun [kind of],” Josh told the station.

Josh, who suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, said his teacher was visibly mad when she saw that the pastry looked like a gun, according to the report.

The boy’s dad, who was not identified in the report, was later notified that Josh had been suspended for two days for fashioning the pastry into a gun.

Ravens stun Broncos, Niners level Pack to win spots in conference championships

Baltimore gets tie Broncos in final 30 seconds, win in double OT

Welcome to NFL immortality, Joe Flacco.

Somewhere up there in the all-time playoff archives near the “Hail Mary” by Roger Staubach and the “Immaculate Reception” by Franco Harris now lives the “Flacco Fling” by theBaltimore Ravens quarterback.

One big throw down the sideline, 70 make-or-break yards on a wing and a prayer — a high, arcing touchdown pass that soared through the icy air, flew over two defenders, landed in the hands of Jacoby Jones, saved the game for Baltimore and kept Ray Lewis‘ 17-year career going at least one more week.

The record will show Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal 1:42 into the second overtime Saturday to give the Ravens a 38-35 victory overPeyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. The highlight? That would be Flacco’s game-tying touchdown to Jones on third-and-3 from the 30 with 31 seconds left in regulation and no timeouts.

“At that point,” Flacco said, “you have to start taking shots. You have to get a little lucky.”

Kaepernick runs wild, Green Bay hardest hit

The unproven kid thoroughly beat the former Super Bowl champion and reigning MVP.

With a strong arm that allowed him to pick the Packers apart from the pocket and speedy legs that helped him break free for big gains, Colin Kaepernick did a little bit of everything in a record-setting, sensational playoff debut — and Aaron Rodgers just couldn’t keep up.

Kaepernick passed for 263 yards and ran theSan Francisco 49ers right back to the NFC Championship Game with a 45-31 win over Green Bay in an NFC divisional game Saturday night.

Kaepernick rushed for a quarterback-record 181 yards and two touchdowns and threw two scoring passes to Michael Crabtree. Next up for the Niners: a game on Jan. 20 for a spot in the Super Bowl, against the winner of Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Falcons at Atlanta.

 

NFL Playoff picks for Divisional Round

Only eight teams are left standing, and after Sunday, there will be four. So who makes the cut?

The action kicks off later today with the Broncos hosting the Ravens in cold Denver. My pick, Denver. Yes Denver might score less than normal, but so will the Ravens, and that spells doom for Baltimore.

Game of the weekend? The Niners hosting the Pack. Such a tough call here. I have been going back and forth on this one. But, I am sticking with my original pick, the Niners, although I will be rooting against them.

Sunday sees the Falcons host the Seahwaks. Another very tough choice. I can see it go either way, but Seattle is hot right now, and the Falcons have yet to prove they can win in the post season.

Lastly, the Pats will destroy the Texans. I wish it was going to be different, but I do not see it.

 

Ravens roll Colts, Seahawaks shut down Skins

The Colts ran up over 400 yards of offense, but could only mange three field goals in Baltimore. The Ravens now head to Denver to play the Broncos

 

The Baltimore Ravens want one long final ride for Ray Lewis. Having disposed of Andrew Luck and the Colts, they now face a more imposing challenge.

Next up, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Anquan Boldin set a franchise record with 145 yards receiving, including the clinching touchdown in the Ravens’ 24-9 victory Sunday over Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game. The win delays star linebacker Lewis’ retirement for at least another week as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (13-3) next Saturday.

Can the Ravens D stand up against Peyton’s offense?

Seahawks too much for Skins, ailing RG3

The Seattle Seahawks finally won a road playoff game Sunday, taking a 24-14 NFC wild-card victory over the Washington Redskins, who lost Robert Griffin III to another knee injury in the fourth quarter.

Marshawn Lynch ran for 131 yards, and Russell Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards for the Seahawks, who broke an eight-game postseason losing streak away from home.

Seattle will visit the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.

Lynch’s 27-yard run with 7:08 remaining gave the Seahawks (12-5) the lead. On Washington’s next series, Griffin reinjured the right knee he sprained about a month ago while trying to field a bad shotgun snap.

The knee buckled badly, and the Seahawks recovered the fumble and kicked an insurance field goal

Can the Atlanta Falcons stop red hot Seattle next week?

Oh yes, the NFL Playoffs DO start today

And here are my picks for the opening weekend

The slumping Texans will edge the Bengals in a close game. 

The Pack will nip the Vikings

The Colts will go back to Baltimore and defeat the Ravens in Ray Lewis’s last game. And that means we NEVER have to watch that moronic pre-game dance Lewis does! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Finally, the Seahawks go to DC and knock off the Skins
