(CNSNews.com) – “I am done asking people in my community to outsource their personal safety to the government,” Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke told Fox News’s Sean Hannity Thursday night.
The sheriff accuses Democrats of “exploiting misery and tragedy” to pursue a political, anti-gun agenda.
“But here’s my challenge to the president of the United States, you think this is so easy. Forego your Secret Service protection, for you, for the first lady, and your children, and see what it is like to have to fend yourself.
“And then we’ll sit down and have a conversation so you know what we here at ground level have to deal with on a daily base in terms of self-defense.”
Common sense and no nonsense is in such short supply in Washington, Sheriff Clarke has plenty of both
Another fail for gun control advocates who think criminals obey laws
A serial criminal has been arrested in connection with the ‘senseless’ and ‘cold-blooded’ killing of a sheriff’s deputy who was shot dead during a gas station ambush.
Darren Goforth, a 47-year-old father of two, was pumping fuel into his patrol car at a Chevron station Friday night when a man crept up behind him and opened fire.
Shannon J Miles, 30, who has a long criminal record which includes firearms offenses, was arrested on Friday night and has been charged with capital murder. He is being held in Harris County Jail and is expected to be arraigned on Monday.
After Goforth fell to the ground, the suspect allegedly kept firing bullets into his body in what colleagues described as a ‘cold-blooded and cowardly’ execution.
No definitive motive has been put forward for the killing – but Harris County sheriff Ron Hickman pointed the finger at the Black Lives Matter protest group for their ‘out of control rhetoric’ against law enforcement.

……………we get noted idiots like Cornel West on CNN as if he has anything relevant or important to add
Cornel West couldn’t seem to answer Carol Costello‘s question about whether or not the broadcast shooting death of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward was racially motivated.
During the Thursday morning editon of CNN Newsroom, Costello opened West’s visit by asking whether or not he believed “race [played] a factor” in the actions of Bryce Williams, real name Vester Flanagan, during his “rampage” on Wednesday. In response, West delivered one of the most verbose, convoluted and uncomfortable non-answers of the topic of race and violence ever witnessed.
Some of the more academic bits of West’s ramble include:
“The fundamental question is how do you get at this spiritual decay and this moral decadence in this society as a whole? All of us have to deal with rage. How do you filter that rage through love?”
“The problem is we live in a society where people don’t give or get enough love. They don’t give or get enough justice. They don’t give or get enough community. When you’re isolated and insulated, that rage bubbles up.”
“Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”
Good freaking grief, shut up already Cornel! You are a rambling. incoherent buffoon. Of course, I must also note that Carol Costello is not all that sharp either. I mean she actually asks IF race MIGHT have had something to do with the killing in Virginia? The guy who did the shooting said he wanted to inspire a RACE WAR! For goodness sake, how hard can it be to do the math on that one Carol Costello? Of course, to a Leftist, the idea that a Black can be racist is foreign. Only Whites can be racist right? This is what they teach in college now, which explains why so many idiots are college grads!
It is too bad America is not the imperialistic nation the Left insists we are. If we were think how much better off Mexico and its people would be? And, as an added bonus, we would not have to hear the corrupt, race pimping, leeches that run Mexico whining!
We had better drop the idea of putting an end to the birthright citizenship nonsense that combined with chain migration is allowing millions of unskilled peasants from Third World countries to climb aboard the welfare gravy train. Texas tried it, and got a stern warning from Mexico:
The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State.
The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican Consulate to undocumented immigrants. …
The families who are suing say that Texas is violating the 14th amendment and that the state is superseding federal immigration laws.
The sad fact is that Mexico is NOT our friend, as it does not respect our sovereignty our laws, or our liberties
Can I offend Feminists, vegetarians, environmentalist nuts (because EVERYTHING offends them) AND overly Social Conservatives with 0ne pic?
YES, yes I can!
Here is the transcript
An unidentified black man said “when those mother f**kers are by themselves, that’s when when we should start f***ing them up. Like they do us, when a bunch of them ni**ers takin’ one of us out, that’s how we should roll up.” He said, “Cause we already roll up in gangs anyway. There should be six or seven black mother f**ckers, see that white person, and then lynch their ass. Let’s turn the tables.”
They conspired that if “cops started losing people,” then “there will be a state of emergency.”
He speculated that one of two things would happen, “a big-ass [R’s?????] war,” or “ni**ers, they are going to start backin’ up.”
Notice that the caller on the radio show also seems to be referencing a “race war” — like Flanagan did in his suicide note/manifesto faxed to ABC News the next day.
He said, “We need to turn the tables on them. Our kids are getting shot out here. Somebody needs to become a sacrifice on their side.
“Find a mother f**ker that is alone. Snap his ass, and then f***in hang him from a damn tree. Take a picture of it and then send it to the mother f**kers.”
We “just need one example,” and “then people will start watchin’.” This will turn the tables on s**t, he said. He said this will start “a trickle-down effect.” He said that when one white person is hung and then they are just “flat-hanging,” that will start the “trickle-down effect.” He continued, “Black people are good at starting trends.”
Another black man spoke up saying they needed to kill “cops that are killing us. The first black male said, “That will be the best method right there.”
This is where the media could play a vital role. Why not report this. They certainly would if a tape of White people calling for mass murder was brought to light.

William Teach as the latest despicability from BLM
(Fox News) The boos began as soon as Washington’s mayor said she was putting more police officers on the streets in neighborhoods affected by violent crime. They didn’t let up for the next 18 minutes as Democrat Muriel Bowser laid out her plans to address an increase in homicides in the nation’s capital.
Bowser was repeatedly heckled and interrupted by a few dozen protesters affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement during her address Thursday inside the sweltering gymnasium of a long-shuttered school in southeast Washington.
That’s right, they’re seriously booing a plan to try and make high crime areas safer from criminals. BTW, Mayor Muriel Bowser is Black, and a member of the Democratic Party.
Go read the rest. I hope the black community starts to reject these Communist agitators that make up BLM. These thugs are the worst enemies of Black Americans frankly.
And tonight is one of those times for me, I just cannot get into the blogging mood, so, I am going to read, and get some rest. See y’all tomorrow!
The first question is how do such incredibly stupid people earn positions where they have any authority?
So characters who use “violence” to solve problems are bad. this is more of the Lefts inane obsession with the notion that all violence is bad. Again, this is about indoctrinating kids that self-defense, or defense of others is bad.
To use a phrase an old buddy used, this woman is dumber than a stepped on roach
A mewling gun control group is irate that a local grocery store chain is refusing to infringe upon the rights of citizens to bear arms for their defense, a policy that is fully in accordance with state laws.
Anti-firearm protesters are planning to protest against Mariano’s allowing guns in their suburban stores Tuesday morning during a grand opening ceremony of the chain’s newest location in Northbrook.
“Mariano’s doesn’t let people carry guns in its Chicago stores,” said Lee Goodman of Peaceful Communities, an organizer of the protest, “Why should people in the suburbs shop in a store that isn’t even trying to keep its customers safe? Why shouldn’t we have the same protection that people in Chicago do?”
Oh boy! Lee Goodman of “Peaceful Communities” really just said he wants to be safe, you know like those folks in Chicago! Chicago, where the murder rate is off the charts. And of course Lee Goodman, who I can now safely call a noted idiot, wants more of the gun control that Chicago has, even though that gun control has done nothing to curb murders or violent crime. But, that is NOT the most idiotic thing from these “peaceful” protesters folks. No, observe this jewel of colossal stupidity!
Signs Save Lives? Allow Bob Owens to sum up depth to which this buffoon has dug into the Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity
Three simple, short words, showing how disconnected from reality this poor woman truly is.
She honestly thinks that a “no guns” sign on a door is going to cause a criminal to not just pause and reconsider the armed robbery he is a bout to commit, but cause him to reverse course entirely.
She thinks a sign will make a deadly predator—one that likely has only marginal literacy to begin with—to alter his criminal path.
She truly believes that the threat of prosecution for a minor infraction is going to dissuade a criminal from committing felonies.
It blows the mind to fathom the depths of her delusions.
All I can say is Good Freaking Grief! This illustrates how unserious the Left is. It is a bumper sticker mentality frankly. An ideology devoid of reason, common sense, and thought.
Because they have to! Bob Owens exposes the lies of the DC police chief
Emily Miller of Fox 5 has been one of the few journalists attempting to holding government officials responsible for the outbreak of murders in the nation’s capital, and their attempts to pass the buck onto law-abiding gun owners in other parts of the country where citizens still have a practical right to bear arms.
D.C. is in a murder crisis this year. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier have been saying that “high-capacity guns” are a major cause.
But police sources tell me that they don’t track the capacity of seized guns, so they have no reason that is the cause for the spike in homicides.
“Guns continue to make their way into the hands of violent criminals,” said Bowser. “Unfortunately some of those guns have high-capacity magazines that inflict maximum harm.”
“Multiple of our cases have high-capacity magazines and multiple rounds fired making the shots more lethal,” said Chief Lanier.
Last week, I asked the chief to back up her claim.
“In D.C., over ten rounds is high capacity, but your department doesn’t trace what kind of magazine size guns have. I’m asking when you say high capacity, where are you getting that information?” I asked.
“From the guns that we’ve recovered,” Lanier responded.
“So I’m talking about 100-round drum magazines — that would be high capacity.”
She also added, “High-capacity magazines are magazines that are designed to enhance the normal capacity of a firearm.”
And yet, despite Lanier’s claims, Miller notes the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department has no documentation to support her claims, because magazine capacity isn’t one of the data points that the city tracks when a firearm recovered at a crime scene is cataloged.
God bless Emily Miller, one of the few journalists who are honest about gun issues
Enhance capacity? Many compact and sub-compact pistols come with a standard magazine, and an extended magazine as well. My Ruger SR 9 C for example has a 10-round mag, and also a 17-round mag. What the devil is she bleating about enhancing “normal” firearm capacity? the pistol is designed to accept either magazine, so both are normal, in that sense. The Chief is just using scary verbage to shift the blame to guns, rather than on criminals. And, as long as she blames guns, she will never do anything to curb the violent crime rate in DC.
But it is OK, it is all about the “collective good”
“We know that low-income minority communities would be hardest hit,” McCarthy said.
Power to the people? More like pain to the people
One estimate from NERA, which opposes Obama’s Clean Power Plan, has energy costs rising 12-17%. The Energy Information Administrationestimates a 4% increase by 2030. Remember, any increases in energy costs circulate through the economy. The end user isn’t just paying more for energy at home, but also in the cost of goods and services, as they pay more.
Now, in worse case scenario, this could make the average bill rise $240 a year. Cult of Climastrology members will certainly think this is no big deal, as they sip cocktails at fancy parties, but, for poor people, this is real money. Especially as other costs rise.
(Prospect Magazine) But energy efficiency programs won’t save low- and fixed-income families. While the median family spends about 5 cents out of every dollar on energy costs, low-income families spend about 20 cents of every dollar.
Just bend over and say Marxism!
The more deranged and nefarious the propaganda, the earlier you have to start ramming it down people’s throats if you don’t want them to cough it back up — particularly if they are the victims of the malevolent lies being advanced.
The target audience for the “one-stop reference” with an introduction by [ultra-left Muslim congresscritter] Keith Ellison is students from sixth grade to high school, trumpets an email sent to The Daily Caller.
The book introduces “nonblack children” to “antiblackness,” “antiblack violence” and “terror” “in U.S. law and society,” declares a gushing review by The Feminist Wire.
Don’t worry, though, the book explains how “black people have been killed with impunity” “since time immemorial” in a way that is not “emotionally overwhelming 6-12th graders who are learning about the movement, and its inheritance, for the first time.”
These Communist agitators should be nowhere near children frankly
Stuck on Stoopit!
Everett D. Mitchell is the Director of Community Relations at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is also an attorney, pastor, and community leader.
At a recent panel discussing “Best Policing Practices,” Mitchell said that police should stop prosecuting individuals who shoplift from Wal-Mart and Target.
His reasoning? He simply does not believe that police have any justification to engage in policing practices with thieves who steal from Wal-Mart or Target because they are big box stores with insurance:
“I just don’t think they should be prosecuting cases for people who steal from Wal-Mart. I don’t think that. I don’t think that Target, and all them other places – the big boxes that have insurance – they should be using the people that steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police behavior.”
He begins his speech by advocating legal relativism – the notion that communities should decide for themselves which laws be enforced and which laws are not in order to better recognize what safety means for the specific community.
Well, he is a special kind of stupid isn’t he? Watch and see stupidity in action
So, to follow this buffoons logic to to its natural end, if someone breaks in his home, and robs him, he should not press charges if he has home owners insurance? What if someone seeking “social justice” steals from his shopping cart? Is that OK with him? Of course, he never imagines such things happening to him, after all, he is an elite.
Now, salads, yes salads are unsafe for the environment
At the Washington Post, our moonbat overlords have pointed the finger of righteous condemnation at yet another dietary staple. This time it is not sugar, not salt, not meat, but something you would never expect them to condemn:
It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing but crunch to the plate.
It’s salad, and here are three main reasons why we need to rethink it.
Salad vegetables are pitifully low in nutrition. The biggest thing wrong with salads is lettuce, and the biggest thing wrong with lettuce is that it’s a leafy-green waste of resources. …
When we switch to vegetables that are twice as nutritious — like those collards or tomatoes or green beans — not only do we free up half the acres now growing lettuce, we cut back on the fossil fuels and other resources needed for transport and storage.
Save the planet, skip the salad.
So, to be clear it is lettuce that is evil, not tomatoes, or cucumbers, or collards according to the Cult of Climate Change. BTW, my grandfather grew collards, and turnips, and mustard greens as well. My grandmother made the best collard greens , and the best cornbread known to man, I KNOW a little something about collards! They take up as much ground as lettuce does. Oh, and, of course no one puts collards in a salad, OK a radical environmentalist or a heathen, but I repeat myself, might, but not a normal person.
