The Coward of The County– All Lives Matter

My father passed away over the weekend. He was 90 years old.

Today was the Sixth Anniversary of this blog.

The thought occurred to me that he was born into a segregated world.

A world that had just 4 years earlier had given women the right to vote.

A world where he wouldn’t see a TV until his mid 20s.

He died in a world torn apart by warfare, class warfare. A world segregated by race, sex, orientation, color and all for political advantage, not military advantage as in WWI that ended 7 years prior to his birth, nor WWII which he was veteran of in his 20s.

So he died largely in the same world he was born in, possibly worse.

So what does that say about “progress”?

A Texas man faces a capital murder charge in the “execution-style shooting” of a sheriff’s deputy while he was fueling his patrol car near Houston, authorities said.

Deputy Darren H. Goforth was in uniform when he was shot in the back Friday night in what authorities described as an unprovoked killing.

He was white. The perp was Black. What more provocation do you need these days. This is what the Left’s “Race War” has wrought.

The suspect, identified as Shannon J. Miles, has been in police custody since Saturday.

His criminal history includes convictions of resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct with a firearm, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said.

The motive in the shooting, which Hickman described as “senseless and cowardly,” is still unclear.

He was white. The perp was Black.What other motivation do you need. All white people are racists and oppress black people. White Cops only shoot black people. They do because all White people are racists. (according to Leftist Agenda)

But Goforth appears to have been targeted “because he wore a uniform,” the sheriff said.

“We found no other motive or indication that it was anything other than that,” said Hickman, adding that he doesn’t believe the suspect and Goforth knew each other.

Hickman said “a big gun … a handgun” was used in the shooting and ballistic tests on a weapon recovered matched the one used to kill the deputy.

So you know it will be The Gun’s fault. The guy will be aggrieved, oppressed, or mentally ill. So the Agenda item is the Gun itself.

Absolutely NOT the black guy killing the White Cop because a) he was white and b) he was a cop. That is not allowed by the Left’s agenda.

It’s the gun’s fault.

“This is the kind of thing that drives you right down to your soul,” Hickman said. “It strikes at the heart of who we are as peace officers. …This was just a cold-blooded execution.”

But he the perp was Black and the “victim” was White, so it must be the guns fault.

We need more Gun control, obviously. 🙂

“Deputy Goforth was refueling his vehicle and returning to his car from inside the convenience store when, unprovoked, a man walked up behind him and literally shot him to death,” he said.

He was shot multiple times from behind and then fell to the ground, where the suspect fired at him some more, said Deputy Thomas Gilliland, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.

The 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office died at the scene in “an unprovoked, execution-style killing,” Hickman said.

“I have been in law enforcement (for) 45 years,” the sheriff said. “I don’t recall another incident this cold-blooded and cowardly.”

He was White, it had to be his fault. The legacy of slavery provoke the killer right?

All #LivesMatter

Hickman warned that the tension against officers is getting out of hand.

“When the rhetoric ramps up to the point where calculated, cold-blooded assassination of police officers happen, this rhetoric has gotten out of control,” Hickman said. “We’ve heard ‘Black Lives Matter,’ ‘All lives matter.’ Well, cops’ lives matter too. So why don’t we just drop the qualifier, and just say ‘Lives Matter,’ and take that to the bank.”

After announcing the arrest, Hickman said investigators were still trying to determine a motive.

“The general climate of the that kind of rhetoric can be influential on people that do thing like that,” he said.

The sheriff’s department posted “#BlueLivesMatter. #BlackLivesMatter. All #LivesMatter.” on its Twitter page Saturday.

Damn Racists! 🙂

This is not the “better world” that the 60’s Liberal promised. Its far worse.

And it’s THEIR Fault. But they will be far to self-righteous and far to up-their-own-asses for their Agenda to see it.

It saddens me.

So CNN ends the article, with this liberal rationale inanitity :

The attack Friday adds to a grim tally. With that included, 23 law enforcement officers have been shot to death so far this year nationwide, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Traffic incidents are the leading cause of officer fatalities in the U.S., followed by shootings.

So the trend of black people killing white people with extreme prejudice completely escapes their understanding. They can’t even see the problem they are so blinded by ideology.

State Representative Garnet F. Coleman, a Houston lawmaker who is heading a legislative inquiry into the death of Sandra Bland, an African-American woman found hanging in a Waller County jail cell in July, criticized the sheriff’s remarks.

“It strikes me as politicizing a death that, I don’t know that anyone knows what was in the mind of the shooter,” said Mr. Coleman, a Democrat. “I think black lives matter. I think deputy sheriffs’ lives matter. But I think the statement shows a lack of understanding of what is occurring in this country when it comes to the singling out of African-Americans.”

See what I mean?

“I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this violence.” 🙂

One is a “racist”, can you guess which one?

The other one? It’s the Gun’s fault or Mentally unbalanced.

Which one is which?

Get over it!

2014:

Students at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord wanted to come up with ways to observe the occasion during a lunchtime celebration Friday. But when the school announced a menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, other students and parents became offended.KNTV-TV reports that school officials held an assembly on campus Wednesday to discuss the issue and also sent a letter apologizing to parents. Principal Nancy Libby wrote that the items were taken off of the menu and that the school doesn’t perpetrate racial stereotypes.Libby also wrote the school will hold a diversity assembly for students and faculty.

‘Nuff Said? 🙂

In the event that there are more “Vester Lee Flanagans” out there in the Untied States of The Overly Offended who’re ready to snap because the world won’t recognize them as God’s gift to humanity, and yet, you’re not completely sold on the murder/suicide option: herewith are six surefire points to move you back into reality and officially remove you from being The Mayor of Mangina-town and into the rarefied air of a combobulated human.

He was the perfect model of the aggrieved and oppressed Progressive Liberal. I would think Liberal would canonize him. He’s everything they have worked for for generations. They built him.

1. Drop the “poor you” crap, especially, if you live in America. If you live in the USA you … are … not … suffering. So quit crying. Oh, and speaking of not crying here’s a big FYI to you: most employers I know don’t want some screecher who bleats about going over molehills in the Garden of Eden. Therefore, play the man if you truly wish to draw the attention of a company that’s worth its salt. And definitely don’t do videos, tweets or Facebook posts where you bray to the masses that you’re an unhinged, pitiful ass.

2. Get a vision. Visionaries who want to slay a dragon, save a nation and right a wrong are attractive. Solipsistic me-monkeys are repugnant to people of note. Look, God didn’t call you to be a navel gazer. So, go out into the desert and get aligned with your eternal purpose – and if for some reason your antenna isn’t picking up on God’s higher calling for you, there’s plenty of things currently bigger than your dipstick life to get involved with that’ll help God and country. Get lost in them and, even if you look like Napoleon Dynamite, your passion will make you magnetic. 

3. If you really want a great job, then don’t be a jerk to everyone you come in contact with. Duh. Vester The Killer got crapped on, according to his multiple employers and his workmates, because he was an insufferable boor with a chip on his shoulder that was bigger than Rosie O’Donnell’s beer gut. If you want the stellar gig then forego being the company’s Costanza.

4. Instead of pining like a charter member of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band, use that time to read books and start with the Classics. After you plow through the Classics read the awesome tome titled, How Not To Be A Pathetic & Murderous Punk. Also, read bios of people who went through true difficulties instead of imagined ones like you’re bemoaning and follow simple shampoo instructions, namely: lather, rinse and repeat their indefatigable spirit instead of rolling up in the fetal position and wetting your gigantic entitlement diaper.

5. Spend time with God. Get your identity from Him, not culture, and certainly not from some slick-haired grievance monger like Al Sharpton.

6. Embrace rejection and pain. That stuff Vester squealed about in his “manifesto” is an homage to the “poor little me” industry. Rejection and pain is the way of life, hombre. That’s why God created beer.

Lastly, getting rebuffed by employers is the standard for young dorks. It’s the way of the jungle, Dinky. Get used to it and get busy bettering yourself and the planet … and do us all a favor and shut the %@&# up. (Doug Giles)

 Oh, and one more thing: LIFE ISN’T FAIR!!!

“No one owes you a livin.”

“living wage” or otherwise.

NO ONE OWES YOU JACK!

Get over it.

For the hyper easily offended Political Correct, grow the Man/Woman/Whatever the hell up!

Oh, and one last thing: No one is more “equal” than anyone else. That’s what equality means. It doesn’t mean you get special treatment for some aggrieved wrong or perceived slight regardless.

 

Cotton Fields

Besides his apparent erratic workplace demeanor, <Vester Lee> Flanagan seemed to have this mindset that he was besieged with racism at the workplace. Before his termination at WDBJ, co-workers said he thought the words “field” and “swinging” were racist. According to the Daily Mail, this is what prompted him to file a complaint in 2012 against then-intern Alison Parker, who he would eventually murder, for saying stuff like “‘swinging’ by an address,” or “going out into the ‘field.’” To no one’s surprise, Flanagan was described as “management’s worst nightmare.”

[Alison] Parker, who was referred to by her middle name as Bailey in the documents, was never disciplined for the remarks.But they appear to be the ‘racist’ comments Flanagan was referring to when he Tweeted in the aftermath of the deadly shooting.

Ryan Fuqua, a video editor at WDBJ, told The Post: ‘That’s how that guy’s mind worked. Just crazy, left-field assumptions like that.’

‘He was unstable. One time, after one of our live shots failed, he threw all his stuff down and ran into the woods for like 20 minutes.’

Trevor Fair, a 33-year-old cameraman at WDBJ, told the newspaper the words Parker used are commonplace but that they would routinely anger Flanagan.

We would say stuff like, “The reporter’s out in the field.” And he would look at us and say, “What are you saying, cotton fields? That’s racist”.’

‘We’d be like, “What?’ We all know what that means, but he took it as cotton fields, and therefore we’re all racists.’

The man who was news director during Vester Flanagan’s rocky tenure at Virginia station WDBJ-TV described him as someone who constantly saw himself being victimized by others.

Dan Dennison described Flanagan, who shot and killed a reporter and a cameraman on live television Wednesday, as a “professional victim” during his time at the station before being fired in 2013.

“He was victimized by everything and everyone and could never quite grasp the fact that he was the common denominator in all of these really sometimes serious interpersonal conflicts that he had with people,” Dennison said.

The article then went on to delve into other aspects of Flanagan’s work performance at the station, which was abysmal. He also exhibited a poor work ethic as well.

There are many Americans who get down on their luck. They may lose their jobs, face discrimination at work, and have legitimate anger as a result. Yet, they do not engage in cold-blooded murder. Only the mentally unstable engage in such behavior.

Or the product of the Liberal Media and Liberal education’s obsessions with everything being racist or bigoted, especially if you disagreed with their agenda.

After all, you speak out against Obama, you’re a racist.

Say anything against Gays, refuse them in any way for any reason, and you’re a bigot.

Everything on the left comes down to controlling people by labeling them as either racists or bigots for daring to oppose them, even on the most innocuous things.

Refuse to bake them a cake, they” take you to court and fine you $135,000 for “discrimination”.

Refuse to serve them a pizza and they’ll try and destroy everything about you.

A White cop shoots a black person, for any reason, he’s a racist.

“White Privilege” the new in-thing for the Progressive Liberal.

So pump this guy so full of the liberal shit and he exploded. Why am I not surprised that this should happen far more often than it does?

He was also censured for wearing an Obama sticker while recording a segment at a polling booth during the 2012 US Presidential Election – a clear breach of journalistic impartiality.

Considering the pimp job the Liberal Media in general was doing at the time that’s hardly worth mentioning.

The PC agenda encourages people to think that being mightily offended, or ‘triggered’ (I believe that is the current PC terminology) excuses any irrational behaviour.

So the Left primes the bomb and dares you to set it off, then blames YOU for setting it off!

The infinite fun of The Politically Correct.

Ze are Mindless Nutjobs!

 

Educators in the Volunteer State are very concerned that students might be offended by the usage of traditional pronouns like she, he, him and hers, according to a document from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

A Division of The Ministry of Truth. Proud spewer of Doublespeak, Newspeak, and Doublethink gobbledygook.

They are very proud of their mindless zombie like adherence to Political Correctness.

They want to assimilate you. Resistance is Futile.

“With the new semester beginning and an influx of new students on campus, it is important to participate in making our campus welcoming and inclusive for all,” wrote Donna Braquet in a posting on the university’s website. “One way to do that is to use a student’s chosen name and their correct pronouns.”

How about including people who have a brain that functions? Nope, didn’t think so.

The exclusivity of “inclusiveness”.

Braquet, who is director of the university’s Pride Center, suggested using a variety of gender neutral pronouns instead of traditional pronouns.

“There are dozens of gender-neutral pronouns,” she declared.

For all you folks who went to school back when there were only him and her – here’s a primer: some of the new gender neutral pronouns are ze, hir, zir, xe, xem and xyr.

“These may sound a little funny at first, but only because they are new,” Braquet explained. “The ‘she’ and ‘he’ pronouns would sound strange too if we had been taught ‘ze’ when growing up.”

Orwell, is very proud of you, you are a great example for all to see.

Somehow I sincerely doubt that, but whatever. Anything goes for the sake of inclusivity, right?

For all you folks who went to school back when there were only him and her – here’s a primer: some of the new gender neutral pronouns are ze, hir, zir, xe, xem and xyr.

There will be a Politically Correct test later. You will have to pass it or be re-educated by the Ministry of Truth.

Resistance is Futile.

“Instead of calling roll, ask everyone to provide their name and pronouns,” she wrote. “This ensures you are not singling out transgender or non-binary students.”

For example, the birth certificate might say that Big Earl is a male. But what if Big Earl identifies as a lady who wants to be called Lawanda?

According to the procedures outlined by the folks at the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the professor is obligated to call Big Earl – Lawanda – or whatever name makes Big Earl feel more included.

How about “pain the ass narcissist”?? Sorry, was that not inclusive enough? 🙂

“We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems,” Braquet wrote. “Transgender people and people who do not identify within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.”

Has your brain melted yet?

It’s all so confusing, right? So thankfully, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion has devised a way to prevent students and professors from calling “sir” a “ma’am.”

“You can always politely ask,” she wrote. “’Oh, nice to meet you (insert name). What pronouns should I use?’ is a perfectly fine question to ask.”

BARF! Seriously? Of course they are serious…The Ministry has no sense of humor and neither do the Politically Correct.

Let’s just say that not everyone is on board with the new gender neutral pronouns. Lots of folks in Big Orange Country are turning blood red.

“It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard,” Republican State Sen. Mae Beavers told me. “If you must interview a student before you greet the student, that’s not acceptance – that’s just absurd.”

Bigot! 🙂

Beavers represents a “very conservative” district and she said her constituents are enraged over how their tax money is being spent by the university.

Should that be Diversity instead of University? 🙂

“The idea a child would want to be called by a gender neutral term is absolutely ridiculous,” she said. “It’s getting so crazy in this country.”

Julie West has two children at the university – not to mention a family dog named after the Volunteer’s revered coach – General Neyland.

“This isn’t inclusion,” she said. “This is the radical transformation of our lives and language.”

Yes, it is. That’s what Political Correctness is all about. The control of language, thus the control of thought.

I reached out to the vice chancellor for tolerance and diversity (yes they really do have such a thing) – but I’m still waiting for him or her or ze or xyr to call me back.

Has hell frozen over yet? The Vice Minister of Truth does not talk to the unpeople.

There you have it, folks. His and Hers is no longer good enough at the University of Tennessee – where they are willing to sacrifice anything for the sake of gender inclusivity – including common sense.

I wonder if they’ve got a gender neutral word for idiot?

Yeah, “Liberal” “politically correct”, take your pick!

The Very Model of the Perfect Modern Progressive Liberal

Good thing they were white, otherwise we might have another race riot on our hands…

(sarcasm, not callousness or is it both?) Warning: extreme cynicism ahead. The Politically Correct will have their head explode with “offense”.

ROANOKE, Va. (CBSDC)He planned it all so carefully — a choreographed execution of two former colleagues, broadcast live to a horrified television audience. Hours later, he shared his own recording of the killing worldwide on social media.

Vester Lee Flanagan’s own video shows him approaching WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, gun in hand, as they conduct an interview. He points the gun at Parker and then at Ward, but he waits patiently to shoot until he knows that Parker is on camera, so she will be gunned down on air.

TV viewers heard about the first eight of 15 shots. They saw Parker scream and run, and heard her crying “Oh my God!” as she fell. Ward fell, too, and the camera he had been holding on his shoulder captured a fleeting image of the suspect holding a handgun.

Franklin County Shooter Image 2

That man, authorities said, was Flanagan — a former staffer who used the on-air name of Bryce Williams and was fired by WDBJ, a man who always was looking for reasons to take offense, colleagues recalled. He fled the scene but then posted his own 56-second video of the murders on a Twitter account labeled @bryce_williams7 and Facebook.

He later ran off Interstate 66, just outside of D.C., while being pursued hundreds of miles away and was captured. He died around 1:30 p.m. at Inova Fairfax Hospital of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was listed in critical condition for a couple of hours.

A Virginia state trooper located Flanagan driving on I-66 using license plate recognition equipment.

State Police Sgt. Rick Garletts says the trooper followed Flanagan until backup arrived, then turned on her flashing lights. The suspect tried to evade her but after a couple of minutes, he ran off the road into the median. That’s where he was found with the self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Hope he wasn’t white, because a White Cop and a black “victim” always starts a race war these days thanks to the Leftists.

Wednesday’s on-air murders reverberated far from central Virginia because that’s just what the killer wanted — not just to avenge perceived wrongs, but to gain maximum, viral exposure. He used his insider’s knowledge of TV journalism against his victims – a 24-year-old reporter who was a rising star and a 27-year-old cameraman engaged to a producer who watched the slaughter live from the control room.

Flanagan’s planning may have started weeks ago when, ABC News said, a man claiming to be Bryce Williams called repeatedly, saying he wanted to pitch a story and needed fax information. He sent ABC’s newsroom a 23-page fax two hours after the 6:45 a.m. shooting that was part-manifesto, part-suicide note — calling himself a gay black man who had been mistreated by people of all races, and saying he bought the gun two days after nine black people were killed in a June 17 shooting at a Charleston church. The fax also included admiration for the gunmen in mass killings at places like Virginia Tech and Columbine High School in Colorado.

Remember, kiddies, guns kill people, not people with guns. 🙂

And he was an ‘oppressed’ “victim of WASP hatred so he’s the good guy right?

“White Privilege” and all that.

He was a ticking Politically Correct “victim’ of the evil White Privilege, Anti-Gay Christian World and he just went off, right?

It wasn’t his fault. It’s the evil racist, anti- gay white controlled society’s fault.

He’s not a Leftist programmed with self-loathing waiting to go off.

Nope. Not at all.

Anyone wanna order a pizza?

He described himself as a “human powder keg,” that was “just waiting to go BOOM!!!!”

President Barack Obama says the fatal on-air shooting is heartbreaking.

But it’s precisely what he’s been working for all these years. It’s his Agenda. He must secretly be very proud.

Obama says “it breaks my heart every time” he reads or hears about these kinds of incidents.

Except when it’s, say Trayvon Martin or Ferguson Or Baltimore, etc.

White people shooting Black people is so much easier on his Agenda.

“What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism,” he said.

See, there’s that AGENDA roaring it’s little head. We are the problem. We should should be put down. The Government needs to control us all. Terrorism is nothing to worry about.

It’s you gun toting maniacs that are the problem!

Parker and Ward were a regular team, providing stories for the station’s “Mornin’” show on everything from breaking news to feature stories on subjects like child abuse. Their live spot Wednesday was nothing out of the ordinary: They were interviewing a local official at an outdoor shopping mall for a tourism story before the shots rang out.

The extraordinary from the ordinary.

I wonder if anyone from the Administration wound this guy up. Naw, probably just the Liberal Media… 🙂

As Parker screamed and Ward collapsed, Ward’s camera kept rolling, capturing the image of the suspect pointing the gun. WDBJ quickly switched to the anchor back at the station, clearly shocked, who told viewers, “OK, not sure what happened there.”

“We heard screaming and then we heard nothing,” Jeff Marks, the station’s general manager, said during the WDBJ broadcast.

Parker and Ward died at the scene. Their interview subject, Vicki Gardner, the head of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, also was shot. She emerged from surgery later Wednesday in stable condition.

Flanagan, 41, who was fired from WDBJ in 2013, was described by the station’s president and general manager, Jeffrey Marks, as an “an unhappy man” and “difficult to work with,” always “looking out for people to say things he could take offense to.”

The Very Model of the Perfect Modern Progressive Liberal!!

Obama and Co must be so proud. The Politically Correct should erect a monument in his honor because he’s everything they’ve ever wanted.

They were white “racists” and he was a Gay Black Man. Throw in cisgender and you’d have a trifecta.

“Eventually after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him. He did not take that well,” Marks said. He recalled that police had to escort Flanagan out of the building because he refused to leave when he was fired.

But since he was black and gay, he was politically correct to be offended. They should have given a promotion instead. 🙂

Tweets posted Wednesday on the gunman’s Twitter account — since suspended — described workplace conflicts with both victims. He said he filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Parker, and that Ward had reported him to human resources.

The only thing missing was a little “Allah Ackbar” and it would have been perfect. The media would have ignored him with fierce determination then.

Marks said Flanagan alleged that other employees made racially tinged comments to him, but that his EEOC claim was dismissed and none of his allegations could be corroborated.

But they are White, of course they made racist remarks, They’re White!! DUH! 🙂

“We think they were fabricated,” the station manager said.

White Privilege strikes again!

Dan Dennison, now a state government spokesman in Hawaii, was the WDBJ news director who hired Flanagan in 2012 and fired him in 2013, largely for performance issues, he said.

I’d says his Politically Correct performance should get a 10.

“We did a thorough investigation and could find no evidence that anyone had racially discriminated against this man,” Dennison said. “You just never know when you’re going to work how a potentially unhinged or unsettled person might impact your life in such a tragic way.”

Yeah, he might even be in the Military, say Fort Hood.

Court records and recollections from former colleagues at a half-dozen other small-market stations where he bounced around indicate that Flanagan was quick to file complaints. He was fired at least twice after managers said he was causing problems with other employees.

But a quick “offense” when no has occurred is precisely what The Left wants. He’s a martyr to their Agenda.

They should build a shrine to him.

A former co-worker of Flanagan says he was “off-kilter” and that he thought news anchoring was about “acting.”

It is about acting. Acting like your not an Orwellian Propagandist. That you’re a “journalist”. That takes acting talent.

Kimberly Moore Wilmoth worked with Flanagan in 1999 when he was at a Tallahassee TV station. She said Wednesday that “he didn’t laugh at our jokes or at himself when he would make a mistake.”

Because it was all YOUR fault! 🙂

Wilmoth describes Flanagan as a loner who didn’t socialize with other reporters. She says he got mad when co-workers made light of on-air mistakes. She recounted one story in which he filmed an elderly man trapped inside a car during a flood even though the man was calling out for help.

She says: “Instead of helping the man, he used the man as a prop.”

So he was the perfect Leftist then!! They use everyone as a prop for their agenda.

Flanagan sued WTWC-TV in north Florida in March 2000. The lawsuit claimed that a producer called him a “monkey” in 1999 and that other black employees had been called the same name by other workers.

Seeing racism everywhere. Such a lovely product of Leftist education. He must have been an A+ student.

He also claimed that an unnamed white supervisor at the station said black people were lazy because they did not take advantage of scholarships to attend college.

See, he was the perfect “victim” of “white privilege”.

The station generally denied the allegations of discrimination and said it had legitimate reasons for ending Flanagan’s employment, including poor performance, misbehavior with regard to co-workers, refusal to follow directions, use of profanity and budgetary reasons.

But mostly it was because he was Black and Gay. Don’t kid yourself! 🙂

Both Parker and Ward grew up in the Roanoke area, attended high school there and later interned at the station. After Parker’s internship, she moved to a smaller market in Jacksonville, North Carolina, before returning to WBDJ. She was dating Chris Hurst, an anchor at the station and had just moved in with him.

“We were together almost nine months,” Hurst posted on Facebook. “It was the best nine months of our lives. We wanted to get married. We just celebrated her 24th birthday. She was the most radiant woman I ever met.”

So it was all her fault! She was White, it had to be her fault, right?

Ward, who played high school football, was a devoted fan of his alma mater, Virginia Tech. His colleagues said he rarely, if ever, missed a game. They called him a “happy-go-lucky guy” — even during the early morning hours that are the proving ground for so many beginning journalists.

He was exercising his “white privilege”.

Ward’s fiancee, station producer Melissa Ott, was in the control room when the shots rang out, marking her last day on the job. He had planned to follow her to her new job in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The land of Confederate Racists!

In an interview with CNN, Marks said: “It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? She was moving on to a station in Charlotte. It was going to be a day of celebration.”

More “white privilege”. It just has to stop! 🙂

Marks helped lead the live coverage Wednesday after the station confirmed its two employees were dead. He said he and his staff covered the story despite their grief, to honor their slain colleagues.

“Our hearts are broken,” he said. “Our sympathy goes to the entire staff here, but also the parents and family of Alison Parker and Adam Ward, who were just out doing their job today.” (CBS Radio)

And Vester Lee Flanagan was doing the job the Left had programmed him for years to do.

He was an angry, discriminated against Gay Black man in a “white privilege” world. How unfair was that!

White cop shoots violent Black criminal: It’s a race issue.
Black criminal shoots unarmed White people: It’s a gun control issue.

Yes, Obama, you built this. And yes, Obama, if you had a son, he’d think just like this guy.

You must be so proud. 🙂

Unsustainable

Despite what the Liberals, The Liberal Media, Liberal pundits, Obama, and The Congress want you to believe…

The economy is sluggish but growing and inflation remains low, painting a decidedly mixed picture for the federal government, the Congressional Budget Office reported Tuesday, saying the fiscal situation is improving this year but will snap back by 2018 to swelling deficits and unsustainable debt.

The inflation rate is so low that Social Security beneficiaries probably won’t get a cost-of-living raise after this year, the CBO said.

So all those people on “fixed incomes” who bet their retirement on government assistance are going to be whining even more that they can afford anything.

But tax revenue is up and spending has stayed pat, which is helping reduce the pool of red ink in the federal budget.

Combined, those numbers mean the government will run a deficit of $426 billion in fiscal year 2015, down about $60 billion from 2014 and marking the smallest deficit of President Obama’s tenure.

Which means it’s the least overspending he’s ever done. Mind you, the Feds have gotten more taxes in the last year than ever history too.

The good news will continue for a couple of years as the economy belatedly but fully rebounds from the recession of December 2007 to June 2009. By 2018, though, debt will rise as government spending grows and the economy will cool again, the CBO said.

“The growth in debt is not sustainable,” CBO Director Keith Hall said in presenting the estimates. “At some point, it’s going to get to a very high level. Obviously, you can’t predict tipping points, but at some point this becomes a problem.”

Democrats saw the short-term outlook as progress and said it’s time to close tax breaks and bring in more revenue for spending on investments such as infrastructure.

Democrat Solution: Raise Taxes! Soak the Rich!  (gee where have heard that before?)

Republicans kept their focus on the longer-term warnings in the CBO report. They noted that taxes will remain higher than their historic average over the past five decades but deficits will persist because spending will still outpace revenue.

Budget watchdogs pleaded with all sides to go beyond the numbers and talk about solutions to persistent debt.

Democrats: More Taxes!!! Soak Everyone!

Republicans: Uh…Don’t blame us….

“I don’t know how anyone can declare victory when trillion-dollar deficits are just on the horizon,” (Again!) said Judd Gregg, a former senator and a co-chairman of the advocacy group Fix the Debt. “While deficits are down this year, the real story is that they are on the rise and that our national debt is at record-high levels and growing.”

Watchdogs pleaded with presidential candidates to start talking about the national debt in their campaigns.

Political suicide, for them, so no, they’ll avoid it.

For the most part, that conversation has been muted. Democrats have called for tax hikes to pay for more spending, and Republicans generally have focused on other issues.

See above. 🙂

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, however, has sparred with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a fellow Republican presidential candidate, over the fate of Social Security. Mr. Christie argues that the program needs benefit adjustments to survive.

The CBO report said Social Security spending will be slightly lower than analysts projected five months ago because fewer people will qualify for disability payments. Still, the $66-billion-a-month payout this year makes Social Security the largest single federal program, which is projected to represent 5.7 percent of gross domestic product in 2025.

Medicare and Medicaid, the government’s health care programs for the elderly and the poor, also are growing quickly and are projected to reach a combined 6.2 percent of GDP within a decade.

Defense and other basic domestic spending, however, continue to dip as a percentage of government spending and the economy, reaching levels not seen in decades.

Democrats say cuts to domestic discretionary programs such as education and infrastructure have gone deep enough and that it’s time to reverse them, and they reject Republican calls for limits on growth in entitlement spending.

In other words WHEN IN DEBT, SPEND EVEN MORE! Especially on Agenda Items.

And the Democrats war on your energy bills will obviously help everyone. 🙂

The CBO said the economy is recovering, though more slowly than predicted. The GDP, the report said, will grow 2 percent this year and rise to 3.1 percent next year before slowing again.

Mr. Hall said recent turmoil in stock markets has not changed those estimates.

“The economic fundamentals, at least so far, haven’t been changed,” he said.

In a more pressing finding, the CBO said the government has room to stave off a debt limit breach through November or December — a longer time frame than projected a few months ago. Mr. Hall credited higher tax receipts this year as the reason.

So they can stop talking about it now and do it in November at the last minute and then cave in and raise taxes even more and approve even more spending because “cuts” are politically incorrect.

Debt held by the public will dip this year to 73.8 percent, down from 74 percent in fiscal year 2014, and will fluctuate for a few years before beginning a steady climb by 2020 and nearing 77 percent in 2025. Those are levels unseen since 1950, when the country was getting out from under the burden of World War II. (WT)

And, it’s all George Bush’s Fault! 🙂

It only Takes a Few Minutes

Another good, honest, hard working, just-wanna-feed-my-family, feel good, liberal sob story about the oppressed “migrants” from south of the border.

This Illegal Immigrant Violently Carjacked A Woman Minutes After Getting Out Of Jail

Just minutes after being set free from jail, an illegal immigrant who had already been deported once stole a woman’s car and threatened to kill her.

Guaymar Cabrera-Hernandez, 24, had been held in the Montgomery County Detention Center since June before being released Monday afternoon, FOX5 reports.

Upon his release, Cabrera-Hernandez approached a woman in the parking lot of a nearby Islamic Education Center and demanded she get out of her car.

Wow, so a politically correct Illegal Alien carjacked a politically correct Muslim! Wow, that must have made the liberal brain twist in the wind to figure out who the “victim” was.

It was probably George W. Bush or some White Privilege asshole…

Cabrera-Hernandez, armed with a knife in one hand and a brick in the other, put the knife to the woman’s throat and forced her out of her car, NBC Washington reports.

Once she was out of the car, Cabrera-Hernandez threw the brick at the woman before speeding away in her car.

Police went to the nearby detention center and were informed that Cabrera-Hernandez was released just 30 minutes before the initial distress call about the carjacking was placed.

Cabrera-Hernandez held on to the stolen car for two days before he found another victim and attempted to steal a different car. He approached a 68-year-old woman at the parking lot of the Sibley Hospital Medical Office Building and demanded she hand over her keys.

The two struggled for a bit before Cabrera-Hernandez threw a bottle at the woman’s head, which missed, and she was able to escape from the car. Cabrera-Hernandez then sped away in the newly stolen car, breaking through a security gate with police in pursuit.

This time he didn’t get away.

Cabrera-Hernandez crashed the car into some trees after leading police on a brief chase. He then took off through the woods, but was found by police shortly after walking down a road in Northwest D.C.

Following his arrest, D.C. police learned that Cabrera-Hernandez was wanted in Maryland for an outstanding armed carjacking warrant. He is currently in jail pending a hearing later this week.

Cabrera-Hernandez was first arrested in 2007 for being in the United States illegally. He was arrested again in 2011 for illegally entering the country and deported later that year.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told FOX5 that the crime Cabrera-Hernandez was arrested for didn’t meet ICE’s “civil immigration enforcement priorities.”

It’s just a good thing he wasn’t a menace to society.

He could be back on the streets in a matter of days.

I’m sure he’s a hard working, upstanding pillar of the community and we’re just all racists for wanting to stop people like this from getting into country, especially illegally.

D.C. is currently one of several sanctuary cities and states around the country that have laws prohibiting law enforcement officials from cooperating with federal immigration agents.

That sanctuary city status might not last long, though, as there is currently legislation in Congress that would force D.C. officials to report anyone arrested by police who is in the country illegally.

The bill requires the District of Columbia to provide the DHS information necessary to determine the immigration status of the person arrested. If the person is in the country illegally, DHS would be required to issue a detainer. Once detained, D.C. law enforcement would then be required to hold an immigrant in custody for up to 48 hours.

Any official who fails to report the illegal immigrants would be fined up to $10,000.

Lake County, Ohio, police detained Juan Emmanual Razo, 35, an illegal alien.

On Monday (July 27), he began a crime spree that started with an attempted rape of a 14-year-old girl, followed by the attempted murder of a woman he shot at and to top it off, he finally did manage to succeed in killing a second woman.  He is now being held on a 10 million dollar bond in the murder of Margaret Kastelnick in her home.  He was captured after a shootout with police.

Razo has been an illegal alien in the country for five years.  Three weeks ago, police found him in a car parked in a lot.  They determined he was an illegal alien and notified Border Control.

Border Control notified Lake County that Razo had no criminal record and ordered them to free Razo immediately.

Border Control spokesperson, Jamie Ruiz said:

“We’re looking at the facts of the case to find out exactly what happened.”

Aka, how can we cover this up.

Glad we have our priorities straight and Illegal Aliens don’t pose any threats to actual Americans. 🙂
