Video: Sessions Calls On Congress To Defend The Law, The Constitutional Order, and the People’s Interest

In an interview on Fox News, Friday, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) once again called on Congress to step up and fight Obama’s amnesty edict, to defend the law, the Constitutional order, and the American people.

“Congress needs to fund the government of the United States, but it should not fund [executive amnesty].  Congress has no duty to fund a program it opposes as a matter of policy and absolutely a responsibility to reject funding of a program that is unlawful…

 [DHS] is announcing the hiring of 1,000 people to provide legal status to people who are unlawfully here.  It’s a breathtaking overreach… Congress should defend the law, the Constitutional order, and the people’s interest.”

This week’s winning essay,The Right Planet’s#Ferguson: If You Like Your Facts, You Can Keep Your Facts is a superb roundup of the incident and a reminder to us that no one is entitled to their own facts. Here’s a slice:

If you visit the blog on a regular basis, you might’ve noticed I haven’t posted much lately about the riots and mayhem going on in Ferguson, Missouri. The reason is simple: I’m not giving the agitators what they want. What do the Ferguson agitators and rioters want? They want to be seen and heard; and the more they are seen and heard, the better, as far as they’re concerned.

Like moths attracted to the proverbial flame, the major networks and countless other  media outlets have descended upon Ferguson, Missouri, like a plague of locusts. Recently, I watched Fox News’ reporter Mike Tobin claim there were more cameramen at his location than there were protestors a few days ago. (Apparently the cold weather was keeping the rioters at bay.) That image really stuck with me. It’s like a bunch of people grabbed their lawn chairs and ran off to go watch the riots in Ferguson. One must wonder whether the media would’ve been disappointed had there been no riots and looting.

Ever since this whole debacle in Ferguson started, I just wanted the facts. If Darren Wilson was in the wrong, then he should be brought to justice. But there were a number of initial eyewitness accounts that reported Michael Brown attacked police officer Darren Wilson and attempted to take his gun. Well, the Grand Jury report appears to substantiate the initial reports. Furthermore, the whole “hands up, don’t shoot” meme is based upon a fallacy. The forensics report, three autopsies, the medical examiner, the coroner, and eyewitness reports appear to show that Michael Brown did not have his hands up when he was fatally shot by Officer Wilson. But rest assured, facts do not matter to the people busily trying to stoke the flames of crisis and chaos in Ferguson.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is what mobocracy looks like. The facts do not matter. As a matter of fact, they really just get in the way of some good ole fashioned “radical social change.” There is no such thing as due process or being considered innocent until proven guilty in a mobocracy; it is a lynch mob—pure and simple. Whether you’re guilty or not does not matter. Once the mob has labeled you the enemy, it’s over. There is no justice in a mobocracy. The rule of law is replaced with the law of force—chaos and violence that never ends. Our Founders warned us over and over again about the capricious will of the mob; they coined the term “mobocracy.”

From the very beginning, the whole meme has been a “racist, white pig” mercilessly gunned down an “unarmed, innocent black child.” Just forget the fact Michael Brown was 18-years-old—old enough to get married, old enough to join the military, old enough to be considered an adult by law—and stood 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighed 292 pounds. Oh, and just forget the fact Michael Brown (a.k.a. “The Gentle Giant”) had just committed a strong-arm robbery (a felony) at a local convenience store prior to his death.

I realize, as I believe most do, that the death of such a young man is truly a tragic thing indeed. But one must accept responsibility for one’s own actions, and their subsequent consequences. Crime and violence often ends badly for all involved. What we’re really talking about is bad behavior, not racism. Bad behavior is no respecter of race or ethnicity.

In our non-Council category, the winner was an eye openng piece in the Atlantic by former AP reporterMatti Friedman What The Media Gets Wrong About Israel submitted by The Glittering Eye.

In it, he reveals the innate bias of many news outlets including the AP in favor of the ‘narrative’ that casts the Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians as the Good Guys and the Israelis as villains…and exactly how it is promulgated and shaped by them. It’s a must read piece, written by an insider.

Obama Does Too Have Tradition Of Running His Mouth Off While Cases Are Being Investigated

Obama-Divider-on-race-relations-300x200

We’ve reached a point in Obama’s presidency where he really seems to enjoy mortifying average Americans. He no longer has to face the electorate, and since the midterm shellacking, last month, he’s been on a vengeful rampage, issuing his amnesty edict while promising more, dividing the nation on race, and continuing his never-ending blizzard of lies – knowing full well most of us no longer believe him.. (Some of us never did.) But he doesn’t care. He’s Like Holder and the US Congress. After being held in Contempt of Congress, Holder said he didn’t care because he doesn’t have any respect for Congress, either. Likewise, Obama doesn’t care that a majority of the American people now hold him in contempt because he doesn’t respect us, either. He’s going to do whatever the hell he wants to do and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it. He promised to fundamentally transform America, and he’s succeeded. We’re now living in a post-constitutional dictatorship.

In his remarks Wednesday on the non-indictment of the white New York police officer accused of killing Eric Garner with an apparent choke-hold during what should have been a routine arrest,  Obama laughably claimed that he does not involve himself in these controversies. “My tradition is not to remark on cases where there may still be an investigation,” he said.

Of course, the opposite is true. His tradition is to butt in whenever there is a racial component to an incident involving the police. “Rubbing raw the resentments” of minorities to push a divisive racialist agenda is what an Alinsky-trained community organizer does, after all. It is his nature.

Whether it was Skip Gates, Trayvon Martin, or Michael Brown, the Community Organizer in Chief  very inappropriately weighed in while the investigation was ongoing. The only appropriate response would have been to ask citizens to calm down, respect our laws, respect the law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line for us, and respect our judicial system. Instead, he and his race-mongering partners on the ground, threw fuel on the flames.

There are hundreds of incidents involving the police that end tragically every year.   But Obama has only commented on cases that involved blacks deaths. He’s not interested in addressing white victims of police shootings or the epidemics of black on black crimes and black on white crimes. Those victims aren’t helpful to his radical racial agenda.

Obama needs black “victims” to help him push his race-based political agenda which involves “police reforms” but no reforms or self examination in the urban communities that have the high crime rates. Nothing good will come of Obama and Holder’s police reforms unless you think the crime rates in Detroit or pre-Giuliani New York City are something to aspire to.

Read J. Christian Adam’s Injustice Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department  to understand what they’ve been doing to the criminal justice system for the past six years.

Adams recounts the shocking story of how a once-storied federal agency, the DOJ’s Civil Rights division has degenerated into a politicized fiefdom for far-left militants, where the enforcement of the law depends on the race of the victim.

In Injustice, Adams reveals:

  • The inside story of how the Obama DOJ spiked the voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party—and the Panthers’ little-known public appearance with Obama
  • How the Obama administration changed DOJ hiring policy to ensure radical leftists would dominate the Civil Rights Division
  • The Obama DOJ’s bizarre agenda, from insisting on kids’ rights to attend school dressed as transvestites, to litigating for teachers’ rights to take paid vacations to Mecca
  • How the DOJ has repeatedly sided with political bosses who flagrantly disenfranchise entire communities of white voters
  • Why the DOJ’s fixation on racial grievance threatens the integrity of the 2012 elections

If you thought the federal government was dedicated to race-neutral equal protection, Injustice will set you straight. This searing indictment of government malfeasance unveils the astonishing political extremism and outright lawlessness that now infects on of the government’s most powerful agencies.

Are you getting the picture?

John Perazzo, FrontPageMagazine: Saul Alinsky Lives in Ferguson

In his quest to cultivate the type of chaos that would spark social revolution against America’s capitalist system, Alinsky exhorted activists to constantly “rub raw the resentments of the people” and “fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression”—but to do this in measured tones, so as not to “scare off” middle-class Americans.

Thus did Obama dutifully and blandly call for “unity” and calm in the immediate aftermath of Michael Brown’s “heartbreaking and tragic” death, even as he repeatedly reminded us that: “police should not be bullying or arresting” anyone without cause; “in too many communities, too many young men of color are left behind and left as objects to fear”; “there is no excuse for excessive force by police”; “the justice gap” between whites and nonwhites is unacceptable; “the criminal-justice system doesn’t treat people of all races equally”; and “too many young men of color feel targeted by law enforcement, guilty of walking while black, or driving while black, judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness.” And when the grand jury in Ferguson subsequently chose not to indict Darren Wilson because the officer obviously had shot Michael Brown in self-defense, Obama pronounced the black community’s indignation to be “an understandable reaction.”

Obama’s carefully chosen words—all delivered in the type of nonthreatening tenor advocated by Saul Alinsky—clearly communicated a single, foundational theme to African Americans: In the racist cesspool known as the United States, black people are routinely treated like second-class citizens, if not subhumans. Oh, and by the way, please remain calm. Wink, wink.

Exactly, exactly exactly. It’s time to swallow hard and face the ugly truth. Those revolutionaries  out on the street looting, burning, and throwing molotov cocktails at the police are this president’s foot soldiers – just like they were in Sanford Florida, and just like they were during the Occupy “protests.”

In NYC as in Ferguson, Obama fellow travelers were on the ground leading chants and handing out Communist propaganda. In New York, a Communist group equated the NYPD With KKK.

Lest anyone think there might be a way to bridge the gap between civil society and the revolutionaries in the vanguard of the current Gentle Giant Brigades, a dose of reality is in order: Alinsky emphasized that the overarching objective of any crusade is never to promote peace or reconciliation, but rather to be unwaveringly “dedicated to an eternal war” in which “there are no rules of fair play” and “no compromise” whatsoever; to mercilessly “pulverize” people with “fear”; and ultimately to “force their capitulation.”

Now that Obama has demonstrated a clear pattern of fanning the flames of racial discord, he’s signaling to his media toadies the counter-narrative he wants them to Gruber America with. That’s right. Obama has a long “tradition of not remarking on cases where there still may be an investigation.”

That has certainly been the tradition of presidents in recent American history. But not this current one.
