Democrat Mary Landrieu: Obama Is Unpopular in Louisiana Because of Racism (Video)

Wow!
President Obama visits New Orleans area following Hurricane Isa

Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) told Chuck Todd today that the reason Barack Obama is unpopular in Louisiana because the state is full of racists and sexists.

“And, number two, to be very, very honest with you the South is not always the friendliest place for African Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It’s not always been a good place for women to be able to present ourselves. It’s a conservative place.”

Governor Bobby Jindal (an Indian American) released a statement in response to the outrageous attack.

“She appears to be living in a different century,” he said in a statement. “Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”

CAUGHT ON TAPE>>> #Ferguson Protester Caught Abusing Police – Charged With Assaulting Officer (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, October 30, 2014, 4:54 PM

A vocal Ferguson protester was arrested for assaulting a police officer after he was caught on tape abusing the officer.

Bassem Masri is a regular at the Ferguson protests.

Bassem Masri posted video where he verbally assaulted police in Ferguson, Missouri.
Now he’s charged with assaulting a police officer.
KMOV reported:

Local FOX 2 ran an exposé on Bassem Nasri last week.

People appear to feed off of his energy. Masri told an officer, ‘What happens when we take your gun?’ That officer then protects his gun. Another officer protecting his gun was answered with screams, ‘He has his hand on his gun!’

Then citizens surrounded him and chanted, ‘Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot.’

At one point you can hear Masri tell officers, while pointing at each one, ‘I`m praying for your death and you death and your death and your death.’

Bassem Masri sat down with us to answer to his tactics. He said, ‘We need to be talking about how we gonna fix the police, not how do we fix Bassem.’

Reporter Hayes asked, ‘It appears at times you`re trying to get an officer to strike you.’

Masri: ‘Maybe, nah. I don`t want to get hurt. I don`t want to go to jail. Hell no and you know what it is? Like I just stated earlier, I`m a citizen who`s mad.’

 

MAINE GOVERNOR Threatens to Use “Full Extent of His Authority” After Ebola Nurse Takes Bike Ride

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, October 30, 2014, 2:44 PM

Talks with Ebola nurser Kaci Hickox have failed.
Governor Paul LePage says he now will “exercise the full extent of his authority” regarding the Ebola nurse.

Kaci Hickox went out for a bike ride this morning with her boyfriend.

Ottawa Radio reported:

Negotiations with nurse Kaci Hickox, who refuses to be quarantined after treating Ebola patients in West Africa, have “failed” and the governor of Maine will now “exercise the full extent of his authority,” according to a statement from the governor’s office.

Gov. Paul LePage didn’t say whether that meant getting a court order to enforce Hickox’s quarantine or forcing her to take an Ebola blood test. Earlier on Thursday, LePage indicated to ABC News that he would abandon his demand that Hickox remain under quarantine if she would agree to take a blood test for the lethal virus.

“I was ready and willing — and remain ready and willing — to reasonably address the needs of healthcare workers meeting guidelines to assure the public health is protected,” LePage said.

The governor made his comment after Hickox defiantly challenged demands that she remain quarantined by leaving her home in Fort Kent Thursday morning for a bike ride with her boyfriend. She was trailed by a police car as she rode.

Here’s a copy of Governor’s statement:

Governor Paul R. LePage announced today that negotiations with a healthcare worker who had been quarantined in New Jersey and is now in Fort Kent have failed despite repeated efforts by State officials to work with an individual.

Since the arrival of a healthcare worker to the State of Maine, State health officials have worked diligently and tirelessly to address the safety and needs of the individual healthcare worker and all Mainers.

The Governor’s chief legal counsel together with the Attorney General was in hours of negotiation Wednesday in an attempt to reach agreement on how healthcare workers in Maine should meet the CDC guidelines for those in the “some risk” category. That category includes anyone who has had direct exposure to persons infected with Ebola within a 21-day incubation period. The agreement sought to identify how healthcare workers should conduct themselves, given the threat of exposure to the public, should symptoms develop.

“I was ready and willing—and remain ready and willing—to reasonably address the needs of healthcare workers meeting guidelines to assure the public health is protected,” Governor LePage said.

CDC guidelines outlining what Maine considers an in-home quarantine require:
a. Direct Active Monitoring;
b. Any travel will be coordinated with the public health authorities to ensure uninterrupted direct active monitoring;
c. Controlled movement to include exclusion from long-distance commercial conveyances or local public conveyances;
d. Exclusion from public places and congregate gatherings;
e. Exclusion from workplaces for the duration of a public health order (except to receive necessary healthcare);
f. Non-congregate public activities while maintain a three-foot distance from others is permitted (for example, walking or jogging in a park);
g. Other activities should be assessed as needs and circumstances change to determine whether these activities may be undertaken.

These guidelines would allow an individual in the “some risk” category to go for walks, runs or ride their bicycle, but would prevent such a person from going into public places or coming within three feet of other people in non-congregate gatherings. Unfortunately, an agreement was not reached. The Governor remains willing to enter into such an agreement, on a case-by-case basis, with traveling healthcare workers who meet this definition.

As a result of the failed effort to reach an agreement, the Governor will exercise the full extent of his authority allowable by law.
Maine statutes provide robust authority to the State to use legal measures to address threats to public health.

Public health provisions contained at Title 22 of Maine’s Revised Statutes govern how the State may proceed to control diseases. There are multiple options provided in law. Specifics of the process or steps being taken by the State at this time may not be discussed publicly due to the confidentially requirements in law.

The two peace activists face assault charges.
The Washington Times reported:

Two “Stop the Violence” organizers allegedly beat one of their colleagues so severely that he vomited blood and was left unconscious in critical condition.

Nikole Ardeno and Emanuel Velez, both 30, accused their former roommate of stealing their property, and allegedly punched and kicked him in the street until he had seizures. Arrested moments later, Ardeno was still wearing the same “Stop the Violence” T-shirt she had on the night before when she coordinated a march protesting two recent shootings.

The two peace activists beat the mant until he was convulsing and vomiting blood.

Washington police said Joshua Magraff was walking in the 1000 block of Jefferson Avenue shortly before 4:30 p.m. when Ardeno, driving a sport-utility vehicle, stopped and punched him in the face through her open window.

Velez then got out of the vehicle from the passenger side and allegedly punched Magraff in the head, knocking him to the ground, police said.

Police said Ardeno and Velez then kicked Magraff while he lay unconscious on the sidewalk, causing him to convulse and vomit blood.

 

St. Louis Police Wives Seeking Food, Supply Donations for #Ferguson Patrol Officers

Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Thursday, October 30, 2014, 2:01 PM

The St. Louis Police Wives’ Association is collecting food, supplies and cash donations to support the officers pulling long shifts in Ferguson, Missouri.

protester police ferguson

The SLPWA issued a press release two weeks ago that was reported on Thursday by Brian Kelly for KMOX. A search shows only two other reports on the appeal to support police in Ferguson— Fox2 KTVI on October 23rd and St. Louis Public Radio KMWU on October 27th.

KMWU reports the SLPWA has increased its membership ‘two-fold’ since the August shooting of unarmed black robber Michael Brown by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson following a physical confrontation. The report goes on to tell of the toll the long continuous shifts are taking on the officers and their families, including threats.

The need for supplies is greater now as preparations are being made in anticipation of a decision by the grand jury on whether or not to indict Wilson in the shooting of Brown. Ferguson was beset by weeks of nightly rioting after the shooting in early August, leading to outside law enforcement officers being brought in to help keep the peace.

For some reason apparently the rest of the St. Louis media doesn’t think supporting local law enforcement officers is very newsworthy. Here is the press release in full:

ST. LOUIS POLICE WIVES’ ASSOCIATION SEEKS DONATIONS AS SUPPLIES NEAR DEPLETION

Organization Works to Provide Ongoing Support to Local Police Officers During Times of Crisis

ST. LOUIS, MO (Oct 17, 2014) … The St. Louis Police Wives’ Association (SLPWA), which exists to provide support to local police offers and their families in times of need, has been serving 600 meals a day to officers around the clock, seven days a week, since mid-August. Resources are now nearing depletion, leaving the organization unable to proactively prepare should additional instances of wide spread civil disobedience occur.

“When the command posts are activated, officers are placed on mandatory 12-hour shifts with little time off,” commented Hope Jones, spokesperson for the St. Louis Police Wives Association. “When on duty, officers are unable to break their line to get food or even use the bathroom. Making sure our officers have food in their stomachs and the support they need to ensure the safety of as many of our areas citizens as possible is currently our priority.”

The SLPWA is seeking snack items, such as sunflower seeds, nuts, beef jerky and trail mix that officers can easily fit into vest or cargo pockets so they can carry what they can with them to help sustain them throughout the day. The organization is also in need of energy drinks (most requested items by officers), Visa gift cards that can be used at any restaurant or grocery store, and monetary donations that can to used to purchase whatever is needed, when it is needed, such as antibacterial wipes, Band-Aids and food supplies.

Area residents interested in investing in local officers and the safety of the St. Louis area are encouraged to either make a monetary donation through the SLPWA’s website at www.stlpolicewives.org, or drop off energy drinks, individually packaged snacks and Visa gift cards at one of two drop off sites. These include the Ferguson Fire House at 200 S. Florissant RD. and Third Baptist Church at 620 N. Grand M-F 9am-4pm and Saturday Oct 18th from 9-12. Questions regarding donations can be answered by calling 314-625-0781.

In addition to providing meals, supplies, drinks and whatever else an officer or his/her family needs during times of crisis, the SLPWA members help connect families to counselors, provide babysitting services for one another and offer much needed emotional support. To learn more about the work of the St. Louis Police Wives’, call 314-625-3504, visit www.stlpolicewives.org, or find them on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @stlpolicewives.

The St. Louis Police Wives’ Association is composed of wives, mothers, sisters and widows of active and retired St. Louis area Police Officers, who as a group, have bonded together to assist injured officers, as well as police families, in times of need and family crisis. Our services include financial assistance, scholarships, memorial gifts, family support, family activities and volunteer service at fundraisers.

The investigation into grand jury leaks found a Twitter account was hacked last month.
KSDK reported:

The initial investigation into the grand jury was launched following a tweet last month that said, “I know someone sitting on the grand jury of this case. There isn’t enough at this point to warrant an arrest.” That Twitter account was deleted shortly after the tweet. The woman associated with that account later claimed she’d been hacked.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said his office’s investigation confirmed the woman’s Twitter account had, indeed, been hacked. The owner of that account has no connection with any member of the grand jury.

 

Breaking: ISIS Drops iPhones After Apple CEO Tim Cook Comes Out as Gay

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, October 30, 2014, 11:00 AM

Apple CEO Tim Cook came out of the closet today in a BloombergBusinessweek article.
tim cook gay
Tim Cook wrote:

For years, I’ve been open with many people about my sexual orientation. Plenty of colleagues at Apple know I’m gay, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me. Of course, I’ve had the good fortune to work at a company that loves creativity and innovation and knows it can only flourish when you embrace people’s differences. Not everyone is so lucky.

While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.

Following the announcement ISIS combatants decided to ditch their iPhones.

A leading Saudi cleric also urged his supporters to drop the iPhone.

The Ferguson police officer has received numerous death threats since the August shooting.
KMOX reported:

Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is reportedly expected to be “eased out” of the department.

A source tells MSNBC that Wilson – who fatally shot Michael Brown that touched off months of protests – will be “eased out” of the Ferguson Police Department and might resign. The report also stated Chief Thomas Jackson would resign, but the department said that is not true.

“Ferguson Chief says he has not resigned, he has not been told to resign. He has not been fired. If he leaves, it will be his choice alone,” the department posted on Twitter.
