McKinney Mom Flees Town To Escape Harassment, Hires Gloria Allred, Tells Story

Tracey Carver is the blond white woman seen in a viral video trying to break up a fight at the McKinney pool party that ended up in a near riot.

The cop who was seen on video subduing the 15 year old black girl has already quit his job and fled town. His life is ruined. Witnesses who took the side of the police have experienced harassment and intimidation  since the incident happened.

Carver, who has been accused of racism, has also seen vile and virulent harassment and death threats – – and has been forced to flee town. She has hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred (!) to help her regain her reputation.

Welcome to ObamaMerica – where an end of the school-year pool party can turn into a horrific, life-changing nightmare for normal, middle class people who thought they were just in for a fun afternoon with their kids..

In a statement forwarded to The Dallas Morning News, Carver said that she was trying to defuse a fight between her friend and a young woman who pulled the friend’s hair. The McKinney woman noted she had to relocate to California because of threats against her and her family.

Tatyana Rhodes, a black 19-year-old woman, had told a photojournalist that another woman, who is white, told her to return to her public housing before slapping her in the face. Rhodes said she, her mother and sister live in the Craig Ranch subdivision and hosted the party there.

Correction: Rhodes hosted a competing party in the park next to the pool that she had advertised on social media as a pool party even though she wasn’t authorized to have a pool party – especially one with up to 200 non-residents at the pool (or even in the park.)

Rhodes claimed on Youtube that the white woman “was saying things such as, ‘black F-er,’ and ‘That’s why you live in Section 8 homes.’”

Her white friend Grace Stone has been active on Twitter and MSNBC corroborating this side of the story. (Neither of the two seem particularly bright, or compelling or believable.) Her father, who I’ve seen in a couple of interviews backing up his daughter,  doesn’t explain why his 14 year old daughter was allowed to be at an unauthorized, out of control party at a subdivision she doesn’t live in.

It’s bad enough that these teens thought that it was okay to break rules and disturb the peace. What’s up with their adult enablers?

You want to hear what really happened at the McKinney pool party? Here’s Tracy Carver and her counsel, Gloria Allred (!) and a black friend who’s considered part of her family, to explain.

Ralph Peters: Genocide is Looming For Yazidis And Nobody’s Paying Attention (Video) UPDATE: UN Rescue Underway

Lt Col Ralph Peters was on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer,  Monday to talk about the gains being made by the brutal Islamist terrorists ISIS throughout Iraq. Peters criticized the Obama administration for refusing to arm the Kurds – opting instead to back the broken and paralyzed Iraqi government.

“While the whole world – led by the UN is ganging up on Israel – which is trying desperately to prevent civilian deaths, the Islamic State – this emerging caliphate –  is slaughtering not just soldiers, captive Kurds… they’re slaughtering innocent people,” Peters exclaimed.  “And in those villages  – especially in Sinjar, one of the towns up there in the Northwest – the populous is largely Yazidis.”

“It’s a small sect … goes back to Zoroastrian fire worshipers – they’re not Christians, they’re not Muslims, and these Islamic State fanatics butcher them – they’re going to kill them – and there’s tens of thousands – perhaps 200,000 total up there. There’s a looming genocide,” Peters warned, as Hemmer began to cut him off. ” A looming genocide and nobody’s paying attention.”

No, nobody’s paying attention. Why is that? Why is the ObaMedia focusing on demonizing Israel as they win their war against Hamas – while mostly ignoring the genocide of Christians and other minorities in Muslim lands?

Via NRO: 

To date, neither President Obama nor Secretary Kerry has mentioned the epic humanitarian and human-rights catastrophe underway in this large agricultural province that for over a millennium has been home to Christians, Yazidis, and various ethnic Sunnis and Shiites. The U.S. has provided humanitarian aid in the wake of each attack, but the Islamic State’s siege of Nineveh requires immediate additional measures to protect Iraq’s uniquely vulnerable minorities.

Ace knows:

This is a tactic employed by Obama — when he chooses not to do anything about a problem, he completely hushes up about the problem’s existence, hoping that the press will take its cues from him and not mention the problem at all.

Thus keeping the American public in the dark about it.

This tactic has succeeded every single time. If Obama doesn’t want to score political points on an issue, the press follows his lead and embargoes the issue entirely.

The ISIS butchers are posting pictures of the genocide in progress on social media. Don’t click unless you have a strong stomach.

Some in the MSM are dutifully reporting on the Yazidi disaster. They’re just not flooding the zone like they do with stories they know the master wants out there.

“The Islamic State’s takeover of Sinjar is the first major setback for Kurdish forces protecting the country’s north,” the Washington Post dutifully reports.  The United Nations estimates about 200,000 people have fled their homes. “Some 147,000 have arrived in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region, flooding refugee camps.”

 Stranded on a barren mountaintop, thousands of minority Iraqis are faced with a bleak choice: descend and risk slaughter at the hands of the encircled Sunni extremists or sit tight and risk dying of thirst.

Humanitarian agencies said Tuesday that between 10,000 and 40,000 civilians remain trapped on Mount Sinjar since being driven out of surrounding villages and the town of Sinjar two days earlier. But the mountain that had looked like a refuge is becoming a graveyard for their children.

Unable to dig deep into the rocky mountainside, displaced families said they have buried young and elderly victims of the harsh conditions in shallow graves, their bodies covered with stones. Iraqi government planes attempted to airdrop bottled water to the mountain on Monday night but reached few of those marooned.

“There are children dying on the mountain, on the roads,” said Marzio Babille, the Iraq representative for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “There is no water, there is no vegetation, they are completely cut off and surrounded by Islamic State. It’s a disaster, a total disaster.”

Most of those who fled Sinjar are from the minority Yazidi sect, which melds parts of ancient Zoroastrianism with Christianity and Islam. They are considered by the al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State to be devil worshippers and apostates.

Gateway Pundit recaps the past several weeks of gut-wrenching carnage in Iraq. For the Iraqi people Armageddon is right here and now.

ISIS is starving the Christians, the Shiites, the Turks, the Yazidis from water in northern Iraq.
It is Genocide.

Yazidi Member of Iraqi Parliament Fiyan Dakheel (of the Kurdistan Alliance) collapsed in tears after calling upon her fellow countrymen to rescue the Yazidis from Genocide.

“Mr. Speaker we are being butchered under the banner of There is no God but Allah. Until now 500 men and boys have been butchered… Please, Mr. Speaker allow me to finish. My family is being butchered… I am speaking here in the name of humanity. Please Save Us! Please Save Us!”

The United States military has the ability to help those people. They could conduct an airlift to save the thousands who are stranded on the mountain.   They could arm the Kurds to fight ISIS. They could bomb the terrorists from the air as they move from town to town. The United States is doing nothing – Obama is squandering all of the US military’s hard fought gains and allowing the Middle East to descend into violent chaos. Evil is winning because good men are standing down. Good men are standing down because we have an evil man in the White House.

Kerry, of course is committed to forcing some kind peace deal between Israel and Hamas to Hamas’ benefit – so he can win a Nobel Peace Prize. He’ll also be focusing like a laser beam on “the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction” –  as big a threat as terrorism, poverty, and WMDs –  that threat being of course –  Global Warming. 

I wonder how concerned those people on that mountaintop are about global warming.



Via NBC: Some of Iraq’s Yazidis Are Rescued After Fleeing ISIS Militants:

No hard numbers, yet – but at least “some of the tens of thousands” of stranded Yazidis  have been rescued, the U.N. said Thursday.

“People over the last 24 hours have been extracted and the U.N. is mobilizing resources to ensure that these people are assisted on arrival,” U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs spokesman David Swanson said Thursday. “This is a tragedy of immense proportions, impacting the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.” Many of the displaced people urgently need water, food, shelter and medicine, Swanson added. Another U.N. official said many of the children on the mountain were suffering from dehydration and at least 40 had died.


Report: Obama Mulling Food and Supply Airdrops to Aid Stranded Yazidi and Airstrikes on ISIS Fighters

More help may be on the way for the tens of thousands of ethnic minorities struggling to survive on Mount Sinjar in Northern Iraq. Many of the children on the mountain are suffering from dehydration and at least 40 have died according to UN officials.

White House Dossier reports that the president is considering airstrikes or food and supply airdrops to aid the mostly Yazidi minorities who are stranded on a mountaintop.

The president, in meetings with his national security team at the White House on Thursday morning, has been weighing a series of options ranging from dropping humanitarian supplies on Mount Sinjar to military strikes on the fighters from ISIS now at the base of the mountain, a senior administration official said.
But the White House is refusing to comment.

Shock: Jesse Ventura Wins Defamation Lawsuit

jesse ventura

This is just horrendous news.

Jesse Ventura, the former wrestler, Minnesota governor and truther, won his defamation lawsuit against the estate of late “American Sniper” author and former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

Although verdicts in such cases are customarily unanimous, both sides agreed to a split verdict. The verdict of 8 to 2 was reached after more than a week of deliberations. Jurors awarded Mr. Ventura $500,000 for defamation and $1.3 million for what was termed the author’s unjust enrichment.

Mr. Ventura, 63, had sued the estate of Chris Kyle, the former member of the SEALs, saying that his book, “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,” included passages about Mr. Ventura that were false and defamatory. Mr. Ventura, an outspoken and colorful figure, stunned the nation by winning election as governor of Minnesota against two well-known candidates from the traditional parties. He was governor from 1999 to 2003.

Two weeks ago, I reported on the testimony of witness after witness who said that they heard at least part of Ventura’s ranting and saw parts of the fight. It looked to me like the trial was not going well for him.

One saw him take a punch. Another said he saw him on the sidewalk outside a bar. Another saw him leave with blood on his lips.


Rosemary deShazo, a friend of Chris Kyle’s who attended the wake, testified that she heard Ventura make a disparaging remark about U.S. Navy SEALs similar to the one Kyle described in “American Sniper.”

“He said, ‘They probably deserved it, they die all the time,’ ” she testified.

Under cross-examination DeShazo conceded that she was paraphrasing Ventura. But when asked by Kyle attorney Leita Walker how confident she was about the quote, she responded, “quite confident, very confident.”

DeShazo is a sister of Laura deShazo, who testified Monday that she saw Ventura punched in the bar.

Rosemary deShazo said she did not see a punch, but recalled Ventura’s remarks because of the context. “Unusual things that are emotional stick in your memory. I remember he offended me, offended people I was with.”

I started to worry when the jury took more than a few hours to come to a verdict. Obviously, I wasn’t in the courtroom, but defamation cases are notoriously hard to prove in a court of law:

 First of all, you have to prove without a doubt that what was said or written about you is not true. Once you have proved that the statement is in fact false, you have to prove that the other person said the false statement with the intent of causing you some form of harm.

Apparently the jury found the witnesses for Ventura to be more compelling than Kyle’s witnesses, but I still have no idea how this high bar could have been met when there was such conflicting testimony. How on earth did the prosecution prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Kyle told the story with the intent of doing harm to Ventura?

In his deposition, Mr. Kyle said Mr. Ventura had indeed made such comments, and that Mr. Kyle had ended the conversation by punching Mr. Ventura as he described in the book. Several witnesses for Mr. Kyle said that they had overheard the former governor’s negative comments or had seen him on the ground following an altercation, while witnesses for Mr. Ventura said they saw no such confrontation that night.

The NYTs reports that “Mr. Ventura has said that his lawsuit is not about money.” He just wanted an apology and to clear his name.

Not that he has any plans to return the $1.8 million dollars he won against Chris Kyle’s widow and children.

The Kyle family is considering appealing the decision according to Kyle estate attorney John Borger.

During a news conference, he said Kyle’s widow “was very surprised and obviously upset,” when he called to tell her the news.

Hump Day Humor: Al Sharpton vs the Teleprompter Part Deux

Just for sh*ts and giggles, here’s the pride of MSNBC, Al Sharpton struggling with the English language and battling his own teleprompter, courtesy of the fine folks at the Washington Free Beacon:



They’ve got quite a line-up over there at MSNBC, I must say.

Did you hear about what that character “Toure” said on Twitter, last week about a Holocaust survivor’s “white privilege?

Twitchy covered it pretty extensively:

‘Screw you’: Touré clobbered for foul idiocy about white privilege of Holocaust survivors

#Whiteness: UMUC prof lauds Touré’s callous ‘power of whiteness’ tweet

Paging Touré: Media Matters’ Oliver Willis talks Holocaust survivor privilege

#TheStruggle: Stephen Kruiser tackles Touré and white privilege

‘This even an apology?’ Touré ‘very sorry’ his ‘power of whiteness’ crap too ‘nuanced’ for Twitter

‘#ToureShaming is awesome’! Touré’s iffy ‘apology’ prompts facepalm-worthy flashbacks

Then there’s Melissa Harris Perry and her tampon earrings and mocking of the Romney’s adopted black grandchild. And let’s not forget Ed Schultz for being Ed Schultz. The fact that the guy even has an audience is mind-blowing. I know MSNBC is proud of the uber-earnest Rachel Maddow, who often has her facts wrong, but never admits it, and creepy weirdo, Lawrence O’Donnell, the absurd racialist Joy Reid, and the rest of the embarrassing clown-show that makes up PMSNBC.

What’s funny is – these are the very people who are calling the special committee to investigate Benghazi, a clown-show.

Here’s head “clown” Trey Gowdy in action. Sans teleprompter, sans notes – cutting to the chase with precise clarity and from the heart.

Gowdy: Susan Rice “Fabulously Wrong” and “Stunningly Arrogant” (Video)

Congressman Trey Gowdy went “On the Record” with Greta Van Sustern, Monday to talk about Ambassador Susan Rice’s interview with David Gregory, Sunday, in which she stated that she had gone on the five Sunday talk Shows on 9/16/2012 with “the best information” she had at the time.

“Is that true?” Greta queried Gowdy.

“Uh no,” Gowdy drawled in response. “There was NO evidence to support that false narrative about a video – not a scintilla of evidence. ALL of the evidence pointed to what she said it wasn’t – a pre-planned coordinated attack. So she was fabulously wrong when she said it the first time, and stunningly arrogant in her refusal to express any regret for lying to our fellow citizens.”

As to what comes next in the investigation, Gowdy said, “I would love the chance to ask follow-up questions of Susan Rice because David Gregory, apparently did not avail himself of that opportunity.” He added, “Greta, I just listened to the clip – -I get tougher questions in the Bojangles drive-thru than he asked her.”

The South Carolina firebrand  then ran through a few questions he’d like to see her answer. “Who did she talk to before she went on the Sunday talk shows? Did she call Hillary Clinton? Did she call Gregory Hicks in Libya? Did she do any due diligence at all?”

He agreed with Greta’s assessment that much more would be known about what happened if so much of the information hadn’t been classified.

“You’re right, a lot of the documents are classified to protect political careers – not to protect national interests.” Gowdy went on to say that “maybe it’s time to to put our efforts together with a select committee with subpoena power.” He explained, “because as you know, I can’t subpoena anyone – I can’t subpoena the Walmart greeter. I can’t subpoena anyone. The Committee Chairmen and the Speaker do. And I’m about ready to ask Rice some questions under oath – not David Gregory type questions about “what’s your favorite color…but real, serious questions about why you had so little intellectual curiosity about the talking points you were asked to parrot.”

Following Gowdy, Van Sustern had a panel with Susan Ferrechio of the Washington Examiner, Ron Fournier of National Journal, and John McCormack of the Weekly Standard to talk about the latest twists in the scandal.

In answer to why the Republican leadership isn’t pushing a tougher  investigation into Benghazi, Ferrechio suggested that the GOP wants to keep a narrow focus on jobs and ObamaCare in this election year, and not stray from a narrative they think will win them the Senate.

Thomas More Law Center Sues DoD For Shutting Down Catholic Services On Navy Base

church kings bay naval base

The church at Kings Bay Naval Base in happier times.

The Thomas More Law Center has filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in reaction to what they call “an astonishing attack on the religious freedom” of Catholics at Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in Georgia who have been denied access to religious services on the base and whose priest has been locked out of his chapel.

Because of the priest shortage on military bases, contract priests are employed by the government to ensure that a priest is available when an active duty Catholic Chaplain is not present.

Due to the government shutdown, many GS and contract priests who minister to Catholics on military bases worldwide have been banned from working –  even volunteering  – despite provisions in the Pay Our Military Act that for provides the funding of employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale and well-being of the military. Reportedly, Protestant services continue to take place and only Catholic services have been shutdown.

Via The Thomas More Law Center:

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Father Ray Leonard, a Catholic priest contracted to serve as base chaplain and Fred Naylor, one of Father Leonard’s parishioners and a retired veteran with over 22 years of service. Fr. Leonard is a civilian Catholic Pastor contracted by the Department of Defense (DoD) to serve as a military chaplain at Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in Georgia.

Fr. Leonard who served Tibetan populations in China for 10 years, informed the court in an affidavit; “In China, I was disallowed from performing public religious services due to the lack of religious freedom in China. I never imagined that when I returned home to the United States, that I would be forbidden from practicing my religious beliefs as I am called to do, and would be forbidden from helping and serving my faith community.”

On October 4, 2013, Fr. Leonard was ordered to stop performing all of his duties as the base’s Catholic Chaplain, even on a voluntary basis. He was also told that he could be arrested if he violated that order. The approximately 300 Catholic families, including Fred Naylor’s, served by Fr. Leonard at Kings Bay have been unable to attend Mass on base since the beginning of the shutdown.

Additionally, Fr. Leonard was locked out of his on-base office and the chapel. Fr. Leonard was also denied access to the Holy Eucharist and other articles of his Catholic faith. The order has caused the cancellation of daily and weekend mass, confession, marriage preparation classes and baptisms as well as prevented Fr. Leonard from providing the spiritual guidance he was called by his faith to provide.

The submarine base is remotely located.  It consists of roughly 16,000 acres, with 4,000 acres comprised of protected wetlands.  There are approximately 10,000 total people on the base.

A Catholic Church is located off base in the town of St. Mary’s.  However, many of the parishioners both live and work on base and do not own a car and cannot otherwise access transportation.  Therefore a sixteen (16) mile journey to and from the off-base church is simply not possible.  Moreover, many of the sailors have an extremely limited amount of time off.  With their time highly regimented, they are not given a long enough break time for this exceptionally long walk and the Mass service.

Defendants in the lawsuit are the Department of Defense (DoD), Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, the Department of the Navy, and the Secretary of the Department of the Navy, Ray Mabus.

Andrew Montalvo, a Talkshow Producer for KFYO out of  Lubbock, Texas says this attaclk on religious liberties is “pure spite” coming from the White House.

The chapel is small, regularly unmanned, and when not being used for religion is used also for special events, as the religious symbols are easily removed.

In addition to the argument that it costs nothing to keep open, several times I assisted in setting up and tearing down special events at the chapel, not under order, but voluntarily.

There is absolutely no reason why the chapel would be closed other than the White House going out of its way to hurt the religious and trample on their liberties.

This is why Obama appointed the dim-witted Chuck Hagel to be Defense Secretary – he was expected to be a “Yes Man” to the Regime’s far- left  agenda and he is delivering.

In other news, via Publius Forum, Obama Administration Says Anti-Muslim ‘Hate Speech’ Can be Punished.

Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, said that inflammatory material against Islam might be a violation of federal civil rights laws. Such a violation could bring the federal government down on those opposing Islam here in the US.

As reported by The Tullahoma News, Killian and the FBI’s Kenneth Moore hosted a “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” to “help” the community learn how anti-Islam speech could land an American before authorities.

“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told the paper. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
