This quote from Malcolm X is extremely fitting after waiting and watching the effects of the media and their agitation towards the protesters in Ferguson. They continued to hype the situation while keeping many on the edge of their seats.
The jury finally handed down their verdict in Ferguson, and did not indict Officer Darren Wilson. Immediately following the release of the news, right on schedule were the protesters. Taking to the streets to loot, set fire to businesses and cop cars, and cause a ripple effect across the nation in cities like New York City.
While many people out there will never experience the loss of their child, albeit at the hands of a safety officer or rival gang or any other way, there is still a level of compassion to the Brown family.
After you watch the following video, take a second to think about how this could have been different.
The pain within Mrs. Brown is very evident. She feels that there was no justice served. However, is it not justice when a jury of peers reviews all of the evidence reported to them and comes to a decision?
After watching the video above, imagine if you will the lasting effect of what you just witnessed. Or, as some refer to it, the butterfly effect.
We’ve seen how they reacted based off of her comments. Now, imagine a scene where she came out and said that justice had been served. That, even though she didn’t agree with the decision that was handed down, to please remain in silence. Not to rip apart the community of Ferguson. Not to loot, and riot, and set things ablaze. Imagine the effect.
Mrs. Brown had the opportunity to alter the entire outcome, and failed to seize upon it. In her eyes, clouded by the pain of her deceased son, she’s doing good. She’s being outspoken. She’s expressing her rights to speak freely and assemble.
But, her actions and those around her will have a lasting effect. One that will not bring the community closer together, rather it will cause further divide. All eyes were on Ferguson, and she had the chance to help bring unity to the nation. A nation that is still ‘healing’ from its past.
It is extremely saddening that this once peaceful town, now resembles a third world country.
The choice you make today, will have a lasting effect.
A new video was released last Friday with the Obamacare architect, Jonathan Gruber saying that the only way they could get it to pass was due to a ‘lack of transparency’ and the ‘stupidity of American voters.’
It’s almost something out of the ‘Twilight Zone.’
Remember back when Obama first started to campaign and he said he would have ‘the most transparent administration.’ And now this?
Then again, you didn’t really think he was looking out for you? Right?
Gruber, the man dubbed as the Obamacare architect just told you that the ‘stupidity of American voters’ was one of the reasons it passed. How does that not make you upset?
Obama thinks he’s so much better than you, and this is just a little proof.
Elizabeth Warren laid out her ’11 Progressive Commandments’ at the Netroots conference in July. As we’ve learned over the last few weeks, those on the Left are looking for someone to take the lead come 2016. For now, that person is Elizabeth Warren.
Sarah Palin issued a conservative response on each of the 11 commandments on her SarahPalinChannel.
Last week, Representative Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) traveled to Oklahoma, as he often does, to see just what is happening to the people in the state he was elected to serve. One stop that he always tries to make is Ft. Sill, and while he was there he wanted to check out the holding area for the illegal immigrants that were dumped there.
Even after pulling the “I’m a Congressman” card, he was denied access and informed who he needed to contact in order to schedule a tour. So, that’s just what he did after being denied multiple times at the same visit.

Obama made the announcement that he accepted the resignation Friday morning.

Sloan Gibson, Deputy Secretary of Veteran Affairs, will be taking over as acting secretary.
Sen. Mike Lee has an agenda on fighting Obama’s crony economy and how conservatives can do it.
At Heritage.org, Lee first addressed the fact that America and her economy is the ‘envy of the world’ and how many people are starting to ‘believe our system is rigged.’
It’s easy to side with people when Obama and his cronies step in with endless stimulus packages and bailouts, to continuing the false narrative of Global Warming/Cooling, to the takeover of 1/6th of the economy with Obamacare. These, and many more are hurting the economy and the American worker.
Mike Lee also brings to light something that should be on your radar in the form of the Export-Import Bank. Don’t know, or have never heard of the Ex-Im Bank?
In short, Ex-Im Bank exists to dole out taxpayer-backed loan guarantees to help American exporters. Most of the benefits go to large corporations that are perfectly capable of securing private financing anywhere in the world. That is to say, Congress allows Ex-Im Bank to risk taxpayer money unnecessarily to subsidize well-connected private companies.
So, what are Lee’s three principles on why we should fight Obama’s crony economy?
- We should do this to fix the economy, and fight against those who make it virtually impossible to create new jobs and competition.
- It’s a matter of basic justice, that the people have a ‘fundamental right to equal opportunity under the law.’
- Conservatives must make a stand and bear the burden of reform.
He also proposes policy reforms that:
- force Congress to periodically reevaluate expensive regulations,
- level the playing field for all energy producers,
- open our higher education system to new students, teachers, and competition,
- give Americans the right to choose whether or not to join a union,
- cut out the bureaucrats who waste critical infrastructure funding,
- and, yes, eliminate taxpayer subsidies to organizations like the Ex-Im Bank.
Fighting against Obama’s crony economy is something we will hear more of leading up to the 2014 elections and into 2016.
