Project Veritas Investigates “Shakedown” Sharpton: He’s All About The $$$

Conservative Muckraker, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has been promoting his latest investigation – which he declared in an email has left him in fear for his life.

O’Keefe says his investigative team spent months in the field investigating protests in New York, Florida, and Ferguson, MO.

Our investigation started with Mayor Bill de Blasio and his vilification of the cops . . . you’ll never guess what happened next.

I sent my team into the thick of the protests and near riots in New York. They stood next to young and angry citizens raising their hands and screaming “I can’t breathe.” As the dust settled, we found that nearly all of them were stirred to action on false pretenses and to the financial benefit of their agitators.

This led our investigation to Ferguson, Missouri and ultimately to the top echelons of power.

Unlike any other story I’ve unearthed in my career, I have never had the eerie feeling that is now burning in my gut. You see, the target of this video is in Obama’s inner circle. That should give you a good idea about the gravity of this story.

Late Monday night, O’Keefe posted his video at Project Veritas website and  the website went down shortly after the posting of his video.

The NY Post is also running the story.

One of O’Keefe’s investigators poses as a Garner supporter with a hidden camera during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.

“You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?” the investigator is heard asking Garner’s oldest daughter.

“He’s about this,” Snipes replies, rubbing her fingers together.

“He’s about money with you?” the undercover asks.

“Yeah,” Snipes responds.

Snipes, 24, also complained that the Staten Island director of Sharpton’s National Action Network, Cynthia Davis, scolded her for handing out street fliers about her father’s case that did not include NAN’s logo.

“She started attacking me. ‘Oh, I see that you got this flier out, how come you didn’t add the logo?’ ’’ Snipes said.

The undercover then asks, “They want their logo on your fliers?”

“Instead of me, he wants his face in front,” Snipes says, referring to Sharpton

“But it’s not about them, it’s about your dad,” the undercover says.

“Exactly,” Snipes responds.

The “unembarrassable” Sharpton told the NY Post, that the Project Veritas is guilty of deceptive editing.

“They’re splicing and dicing stuff together. It was a distortion. Erica is a sincere victim. She was not trying to infer anything with me,” Sharpton said of the secret recording.

Read the whole NY Post for reactions from the subjects in the investigation to the video which range from indignation and accusations of deceptive editing to total approval.

Obviously, it’s not exactly earth-shattering news that people think Al Sharpton is a race hustler and shakedown artist. But it is somewhat revealing that even the people he has supposedly “helped” feel that way.

I suspect more from the investigation is coming – because I didn’t see anything here that would justify O’Keefe’s fear for his life.

 UPDATE:

Phew…I was right – there is more to come.

In O’Keefe’s latest email, he says, “and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You won’t believe what else we caught on film during our investigation.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Whines About Being “Treated Differently” Because of the Color of His Skin in India

obama_1755936c

Good God, this president is mortifying:

NEW DELHI (AP) – President Barack Obama gently nudged India Tuesday to fulfill its constitution’s pledge to uphold the “dignity of the individual,” drawing on his own experience as a minority in the United States as he closed out a three-day visit to New Delhi.

Obama said that while he has had extraordinary opportunities, “there were moments in my life where I’ve been treated differently because of the color of my skin.” As he touted the importance of religious tolerance, he noted the persistent false rumors that he is a Muslim, not a Christian.

“There have been times where my faith has at times been questioned by people who don’t know me, or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” Obama said.

He forgot to mention how people judge him because of his “funny name.” Oy.

Yeah, Obama’s faith has been questioned by people who know him to be a pathological liar – someone who will lie about literally anything - including his own mother’s health insurance status when she was battling cancer. Not to mention about a gazillion other things – too numerous to catalog. It’s safe to assume at this point that about 75% of what comes out of the man’s mouth is utter BS.

Would such a man lie about his religious convictions?

By their fruits ye shall know them.

Enough said?

Jack Cashill, WND: YES, OBAMA HAS EXPERIENCED ‘CONSTANT BIAS’

The bias started early. Obama biographer David Mendell tells the reader that Obama “won” a full scholarship to Occidental, but as a bench-warming, B-minus student in his fancy Honolulu prep school Obama had to know what he had done to “win” it.

The bias continued in college. Biographer David Remnick tells us that Obama was an “unspectacular” student in his two years at Columbia and at every stop before that going back to grade school.

A Northwestern University prof who wrote a letter of reference for Obama reinforces the point, telling Remnick, “I don’t think [Obama] did too well in college.” As to Obama’s LSAT scores, Jimmy Hoffa’s body will be unearthed before those are.

How such an indifferent student – he did not graduate from Columbia with any kind of honors – got into a law school whose applicants’ LSAT scores typically track between 98 to 99 percentile and whose GPAs range between 3.8 and 4.0 is a subject Remnick bypasses.

The bias continued in law school. Obama, it seems, did not make the Law Review the old-fashioned way, the way HLR’s first black editor, Charles Houston, did 70 years prior.

To Obama’s good fortune, the HLR had replaced a meritocracy in which editors were elected based on grades with one in which half the editors were chosen through a writing competition.

This competition, the New York Times reported in 1990, was “meant to help insure that minority students became editors of the Law Review.”

If Obama’s entry in the writing competition had begun like this bogus passage from “Audacity of Hope” – “I know what it’s like to have people tell me I can’t do something because of my color and I know the bitter swill of swallowed back anger” – I suspect his odds of being chosen for the Law Review would have improved considerably.

“By the time Barack got to campus, in 1988,” fellow alum Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan would tell Obama biographer David Remnick, “all the talk and the debates were shifting to race.”

No one benefited more from this talk than Obama. In the same spring 1990 term that he would stand for the presidency of the HLR, the Law School found itself embroiled in a nasty racial brouhaha.

 

 

 

DOJ Will Not Charge Officer Wilson With Civil Rights Charges in Ferguson Shooting

George Soros spent $33 million of his own hard earned money, hoping to spur civil action – yet no civil action appears to be forthcoming.

So after many months of stoking the flames of racial division, Eric Holder’s DOJ is quietly preparing a legal memo recommending that no civil rights charges be brought against the white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., who shot and killed Michael Brown.

Nevermind that the last five months of protesting was over nothing – what was the point of all this talk about imposing police reforms on police departments about then? If a grand jury and now the most radical, race-obsessed DOJ in our nation’s history, found  that Officer Wilson did nothing wrong, what exactly needs to be reformed?

Via The New York Times: 

That would close the politically charged case in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The investigation by the F.B.I., which is complete, found no evidence to support civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, the officials said.

A broader civil rights investigation into allegations of discriminatory traffic stops and excessive force by the Ferguson Police Department remains open, however. That investigation could lead to significant changes at the department, which is overwhelmingly white despite serving a city that is mostly black.

The state authorities concluded their investigation into Mr. Brown’s death in November and similarly recommended no charges.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., has said that he plans to have it done before leaving office, probably in the next month or two if his successor is confirmed.

You realize of course, that if this uber-racialized DOJ couldn’t bring civil charges against Officer Wilson, there was never any kind of case to begin with.

Obama’s Healthy Racial Tensions: Cops Killed in NYC – Shot At In LA, FL and NC

According to the president, the United States is less racially divided than ever before and the issue of race relations is surfacing “in a way that probably is healthy.”

Obama welcomed the attention race relations and policing in minority communities have attracted recently and said he believes there will be “progress” on those issues in the next year as a result of the task force of police, community leaders and activists he assembled this year.

He’s talking about people like the sh*t-stirring Al Sharpton and the DOJ Community Relations Service. Yes, thanks to the Rev. Al and Holder’s community organizers – “progress” is being made. (Even CNN put the word “progress” in sneer quotes.)

“I actually think that [the U.S. is] probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided,” Obama said in an interview with NPR released Monday and recorded before his family vacation in Hawaii. “The issue of police and communities of color being mistrustful of each other is hardly new; that dates back a long time. It’s just something that hasn’t been talked about.”

Listen to the “Healer-in-Chief” go on with this therapeutic-sounding bravo-sierra:

President Obama believes the racial tensions over the police shootings of unarmed black Americans have “surfaced in a way that probably is healthy,” he said in a recent interview with NPR.

“I think that the fact that there’s a conversation about [racial divides and police mistrust], and that there are tools out there that we know can make a difference in bridging those gaps of understanding and mistrust, should make us optimistic,” Obama said.

What crap.

Does Obama’s conversation include anything about the high crime rate among young black males? The epidemics of black on black and black on white crimes? Do the community organizers encourage blacks in crime-infested communities to stay in school, stay away from drugs, obey the law, respect the law, have personal responsibility, traditional morality, reject generational dependency on government? No? Then his “conversation” is worse than worthless. It’s doing more harm than good.

So far the Community-Organizer-in-Chief’s “conversation” on race has contributed to a climate of anti-cop hate that has resulted in the assassination of two cops in NYC and numerous other attacks  on law enforcement officers.

CNN: Officers shot at in Florida and Los Angeles:

Two Los Angeles police officers were shot at Sunday night while they drove their patrol car in the southern part of the city, police said. The officers returned fire, authorities said, and no one was injured.

Phew. That means no violent race riots in retaliation.

One suspect was arrested and two weapons, including a rifle, were recovered. Another remains at large, prompting a manhunt that lasted for hours and involved about 100 officers, LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza said.

***

And there was a second incident over the weekend in which police were fired at, this one in Florida on Sunday morning.

Someone fired three bullets at two deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office as they sat in their patrol car.

A Durham, NC police officer sitting in a parked car saved his own life Thursday night by catching the approach of two men in his squad car’s rear-view mirror.

The officer exited his vehicle to confront the pair, when one of the would-be assassins opened fire without saying a word:

A Durham police officer dove for cover Thursday night after a man walked up and began shooting at him, police said Friday.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. on Lakeland Street, just north of Truman Street. Police said Officer J.T. West was sitting in his patrol car, working on a report, when he saw two men approaching his car from behind.

As West got out of the car to speak to them, one of the men pulled out a gun and began firing, police said. The man fired six shots at West, striking the patrol car once.

West fired two rounds in return. Police said it wasn’t known if West wounded either of the men.

Hopefully (for shop owners near Lakeland and Truman in Durham) neither of these gentle giants were harmed after opening fire on the police officer.

One more via Gateway Pundit: Recent Parolee Arrested in Shooting Off-Duty St. Louis Police Officer:

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

A recent parolee has been charged in the shooting last weekend of an off-duty St. Louis police officer in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood.

Authorities said the officer was critically injured Dec. 19 in a gunfight with people in a car driven by the parolee, Dominic Lamont Irons, 29, of the 2800 block of Delmar Boulevard.

A court document says one of the others in the car was killed in the shootout. At least one other person was still being sought by police.

You know what the country needs right now?  A conversation about white privilege.

When Department of Justice officials arrived in Ferguson, Mo., one day after the death of Michael Brown, it wasn’t just to conduct an investigation on potential civil-rights violations. In fact, officials from one Justice Department office were conducting meetings with Ferguson residents to educate them on subjects such as “white privilege.”

The DOJ’s Community Relations Service arrived in Ferguson purportedly to lessen the tension between protesters and city officials. But sources who attended the DOJ’s private gatherings with Ferguson residents tell NRO that the Justice Department also sought to educate and question the community about the issues of white privilege and racism. The political nature of the Justice Department’s intervention in Ferguson may not be exclusive to its interactions with residents; it also might have affected its ongoing investigations into the Ferguson Police Department and officer Darren Wilson.

That is the conversation Obama and his community organizing “task force” is cramming down the nation’s throat instead of one that could actually do some good.

UPDATE:

Look what else Obama’s “healthy racial tensions” have inspired.

Gateway Pundit: Al-Qaeda References Anti-Police Protests in Latest Magazine, Includes “Don’t Shoot” & “I Can’t Breathe” Slogans

The latest issue of Al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine includes notes on Ferguson and Eric Garner’s death. The magazine hopes to lure young African-Americans to their cause by including mentions of Mike Brown and the “Don’t shoot” campaign.
PJ Media reported:

The latest issue of al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine includes notes referencing the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice, and suggests that a March gas explosion that leveled two Harlem apartment buildings may have not been an accident.

The Winter 2014 issue — an “open source jihad special” — is largely devoted to lauding recent “lone mujahid” attacks and encouraging future lone wolves, as the U.S. government calls them, to try a new al-Qaeda recipe for a bomb they claim can fool airport security.

The slick publication from Al-Malahem Media, the media arm of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, features a jetliner on the cover plowing through stormy clouds, with the headline “Neurotmesis: Cutting the nerves and isolating the head” — stressing that the “main goal” of 9/11 was “economy hemorrhage.”

Of course. This cluster-F wouldn’t be complete without some healthy input from one of the world’s most notorious terrorist groups. How long before ISIS weighs in?

Anti-Police Protesters Failing To Win Hearts and Minds – But Give It Time…

Despite Calls For Restraimt, Protests Continue In NYC

Lefties always have an uphill battle trying to convince normal Americans that their causes are just because most people naturally recoil from their Marxist poison – at least at first. It takes years of non-stop propaganda with the help of the liberal media and entertainment industry for mainstream Americans to swallow the poison, and even then – they don’t get solid majorities. Prime examples – abortion, man-caused global warming, and gay marriage.

Now the noxious swill they’re trying to force down our throats has to do with “white privilege,” and the “national conversation” we’re supposed to be having about police brutality in black communities is designed to advance the notion that blacks – even today – are disadvantaged victims of racial bias. More redistribution of wealth and more reparations may be required to correct this ongoing injustice.

After plucking rare but politically convenient stories from the “nearly endless supply of sad events that occur daily in a nation of 315 million,” as John Hinderaker of Powerline put it, “an unholy alliance of activists and newspaper reporters and editors tries to distort our perception of reality by giving undue emphasis to them.”

Heather Mac Donald writes:

Police killings of blacks are an extremely rare feature of black life and are a minute fraction of black homicide deaths. The police could end all killings of civilians tomorrow and it would have no effect on the black homicide risk, which comes overwhelmingly from other blacks. In 2013, there were 6,261 black homicide victims in the U.S.—almost all killed by black civilians—resulting in a death risk in inner cities that is ten times higher for blacks than for whites. None of those killings triggered mass protests; they are deemed normal and beneath notice. The police, by contrast, according to published reports, kill roughly 200 blacks a year, most of them armed and dangerous, out of about 40 million police-civilian contacts a year. Blacks are in fact killed by police at a lower rate than their threat to officers would predict. In 2013, blacks made up to 42 percent of all cop killers whose race was known, even though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population. The percentage of black suspects killed by the police nationally is 29 percent lower than the percentage of blacks mortally threatening them.

Meanwhile, the very real epidemics of black on black and black on white violence are essentially ignored by the media. The “national conversation” America should be having on race should begin with addressing the problems of long-term dependence on government, broken families, lack of (more specifically rejection of) education, gangs, crime, and the drug culture that destroy black communities.

But no. The national conversation the left  – and that includes our president and attorney general – wants us to have on race is about white privilege,  police brutality, and black victimization.

That’s a tough sell when their black “victims” all turn out to be criminals who resisted arrest and/or threatened  police officers – the latest poster boy actually pointing his gun at a cop.  They are literally asking us to protest the shooting of an armed black thug who was pointing his weapon at a police officer. I mean, come on.

(By the way, the word “thug” is not an inherently racist word. It has an actual definition that is race-neutral: THUG: a cruel or vicious ruffian, robber, or murderer.” I’ll use it in a sentence:  “The 300 pound teenage thug strong-arm robbed a convenience store, pushing the smaller clerk around like a rag-doll.”

It does not apply to every black male, including black males who peacefully protest what they perceive to be police brutality. It applies to anyone – black or white – who engages in violent criminal behavior.) 

When the truth isn’t convenient to the narrative,  narrative enhancements become necessary.  It wasn’t a gun in Berkeley Missouri, it was an iphone. In the Michael Brown case, he wasn’t a black thug who just robbed a convenience store, assaulted a cop, and was shot as he charged at him – he was a “gentle giant” who was surrendering with his arms up in the air and was gunned down by an evil, racist brute. In the Eric Garner case, an honest case can be made that excessive police force was used (it certainly looks so from the tape) –  but a case cannot be made that incident had anything to do with race. Because (for the millionth time) – the cop overseeing the arrest was a black female sergeant.

So after cherry picking “man-bites-dog” stories and lying about them, the shock troops of the organized left are mobilized to protest. Oh goodie.

And here’s where the uphill battle becomes a bit rougher for them. Because (just between you and me) left-wing shock troops are made up of repulsive cretins who repel normal, decent people. The truth can be sanitized by the media and entertainment industries in good time, but with instant news sources – like twitter and blogs – the unsanitized version gets out there first. And the protesters are currently doing things that cannot/will not win them friends or influence people.

For instance, demonstrators in Oakland, California, broke store windows and trashed a public Christmas tree during a Christmas march protesting police shootings.

The SFGate news website reported that the 50 protesters were  “largely peaceful”  but a few bad apples  “broke store windows in downtown Oakland late on Thursday, looted a liquor store and pulled ornaments and lights off the Christmas tree.”

If you read the comments at the Yahoo link, you’ll find no supporters of the “protesters” in Oakland – only people sick and tired of hearing about this crap.

This is what the “largely peaceful” march looked like:

You might ask why the “peaceful protesters” didn’t immediately leave the march and disassociate themselves from the vandals, instead on continuing to march on in tacit approval of it. You might also ask why the liberal media is always so quick point out the “mostly peaceful” nature of these left-wing protests even when they end up with broken windows and looted stores. It almost looks like they’re trying to shield their fellow travelers from criticism in order to protect their shared precious narrative.

Tea party protests, of course,  never got such preferential treatment. The MSM made a point of ferreting out the one or two questionable signs (out of thousands) in an attempt to smear the entire movement. There was never any violence at tea party rallies. There were never any arrests. And unlike their counterparts on the left – they never left a mess. Because the normal, decent people who make up the tea party aren’t  violent, abusive, hypocritical slobs like leftists are.

Here’s another example via Gateway Pundit of another narrative fail for the left: PROTESTERS PLAN MARCH & RALLY in Brooklyn During Funeral of Slain Officer Rafael Ramos:

“This is par for the course,” the Rev. Michael A. Walrond Jr. told protesters after a march through Harlem on Sunday, the day after the officers were killed. “You were called for such a time as this. Don’t get tired. Don’t get weary.”

Indeed, though some groups were willing to stand down, others balked. Along with the protest on Sunday, led by Justice League NYC, a demonstration was held on Tuesday along Fifth Avenue. Another protest is to take place in Brooklyn on Saturday, the day of the funeral for Officer Ramos.

Now even commie Mayor De Blasio is in the unenviable position of having to denounce his precious snowflake fellow travelers because he can see that their tactics aren’t helping “the cause.”

Despite Mayor Bill de Blasio’s pleas for a temporary truce as the city prepares to bury two slain police officers, hundreds of anti-police-brutality protesters took to the city’s streets last night—a move the mayor today called “deeply divisive.”

“Two families are in deep pain and our NYPD family is in mourning. As I have said, it’s deeply divisive to hold political protests during this period of remembrance,” Mr. de Blasio said in a statement today.

The mayor has repeatedly called on protesters to stand down after the brutal murder of police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were gunned down by a man who posted online he was seeking revenge for the police-related deaths of unarmed black men Michael Brown and Eric Garner in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, respectively.

Left-wing agitators never fail to appall normal, decent people when they are in the spotlight. Unlike cockroaches, who at least have the decency to scatter when the light’s turned on – leftists just keep being their gross, abhorrent selves.

But don’t worry  – their more sophisticated fellow travelers in the media and entertainment industry will sanitize the ugliness all in good time. They  will portray all the problems in black communities as someone else’s fault.

As always, the narrative that wins out will be the one that that does the most harm.

Victim of Racial Abuse Emerges In Wake of Execution Style Police Killings

A sympathetic victim of the racial tumult surrounding the police shootings in Ferguson and NYC and the subsequent murderous violence against police officers, emerged Sunday, flanked by the mother and widow of Eric Garner at a press conference in Harlem.

Your hearts will melt when you hear what this lifelong defender of the oppressed and disenfranchised has experienced in the wake of the execution-style murders of two police officers, Saturday.

No, he hasn’t had to bury any family members – nor has he been physically harmed, himself.  And yes, the telephone harassment he’s experiencing now comes as a response to his own toxic demagoguery —  but no one deserves to be verbally abused and threatened by loud-mouthed bullies. 

Via the NY Post:

The Rev. Al Sharpton claimed Sunday that he’s received death threats in the wake of execution-style murders of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.

Sharpton, appearing alongside the wife and mother of Eric Garner, played a voicemail for reporters purportedly of a racist threat made against him.

“Hey n—-r, stop killing innocent people, I’m going to get you!” according to the barely audible recording.

The voice mail also included three f-bombs that went over live television in New York.

Sharpton also took umbrage with police union leaders who have blamed Mayor de Blasio for allegedly inciting violence against cops.

NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were gunned down in cold blood as they sat in their patrol car on Saturday in Brooklyn.

“To blame the mayor and others is not what we need,” Sharpton said. “The blame game will only lead to further kinds of venom and further division.”

And that’s one thing Al Sharpton would never, ever, ever, EVER do – is play the BLAME GAME. 

Poor poor Reverend Al – somebody said bad words to him over the phone, making him feel under “intense threat.”

Have a box of tissues handy, mmmkay?

No one in the public eye has ever had to experience such traumatic verbal abuse. Thank God he’s turning over the evidence to the FBI. Eric Holder surely has his top men on this important case. They’ll have those potty mouthed culprit(s) in jail by Christmas.

After months of stoking anti-police sentiment across the country, far-left organizations, leaders and government officials are in damage control mode, releasing a slew of statements in response to the execution style murders of uniformed NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn by a man claiming revenge for the cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

Former NYPD Commish Bernard Kerik: Sharpton and De Blasio “Have Blood On Their Hands”

Two police officers were shot - execution style – as they sat in their patrol car, Saturday afternoon –  5 days before Christmas.

The gunman approached the passenger side of the patrol car and took a shooting stance, witnesses told police. He opened fire several times, striking both officers in the head, Bratton said.

They were “shot and killed with no warning, no provocation,” Bratton told reporters. “They were quite simply, assassinated.”

The gunman was found dead in a nearby subway station from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Saturday night on Fox News, Judge Jeanine Pirro covered the latest and interviewed former New York Police Department commissioner Bernard Kerik, who said the killings reminded him of the radical days of the ’60s and 70’s when NY cops faced executions (by radicals) and declared that Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Sharpton both “have blood on their hands.”

Kerik accused de Blasio of “inciting” protesters who chanted “kill the cops” during a protest on the Brooklyn Bridge last Saturday.

“I personally feel, that Mayor de Blasio, [Al] Sharpton and others like them, they actually have blood on their hands,” Kerik said on FOX News. “They encouraged this behavior. They encouraged protests. These so-called peaceful protests that, where people are standing out there saying ‘kill the cops,’ well, I hope they’re happy, because they got what they wanted.”

“I think back two weeks ago, when he was inciting these protesters, when he was calling the NYPD and other cops around the nation racist,” Kerik also said.

Former NYPD police detective Bo Dietl joined Kerik in the discussion, adding details about what cops like him faced in the early 70’s.

“We lost 13 cops, one year, 11 cops the next year – they were assassinated the same way. This was with the PLA,” he explained, referring to the Black Liberation Army.

Dietl told Pirro that gang members have been threatening to kill cops in social media for the past week and he excoriated Mayor De Blasio who he called “a disgrace”  and “this punk Al Sharpton” who led the demonstration in NY, last week, where protesters chanted they wanted dead cops. “Well they got two dead cops!” Dietl exclaimed.

He threw in this shot at De Blasio; “you know what? This guy went to Cuba in 1994 – he should take his wife – De Blasio – and go back and live there.”

Dietl said the city should recall “the bum.” Asked by Pirro if he should resign, he said De Blasio should “resign tomorrow because he cannot do the job.”

“He should go,” Kerick agreed. “He can’t lead the city. The men and women in the NYPD don’t respect him. They’re never going to respect him.”

Here’s video of NYPD officers turning their backs on DeBlasio:

Via Twitchy: 

Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Jesse Jackson, the Ferguson Action Coalition and even the family of Michael Brown issued statements Saturday on the horrific killings.

Obama finally weighed in at 12:00 am Eastern after he finished his golf game in Hawaii:

It’s odd that the president of the United States felt it was necessary to qualify his condemnation as “unconditional.” Was there reason to believe his condemnation would be conditional? Would the killing of two cops ever be excusable? So why make a point of saying “unconditionally”?
