Raw Video: NYPD cops turn their backs from mayor De Blasio at police press conference about execution of two NYPD officers

(FrontPage) -- This is what a city whose radical left-wing mayor is at war with the police looks like. While Bill de Blasio/Wilhelm tried to put on a show of concern after the murder of two cops by a Black Muslim as “revenge for Garner”, the cops weren’t buying it.

De Blasio had turned his administration over to Sharpton. He had backed the racist Brown/Garner protests that terrorized New Yorkers and many other people in this country.

And the police who put their lives on the line protecting New Yorkers from his voting base of thugs, criminals and junkies gave him their answer.

Police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio as he walked into the police press conference about the two NYPD officers shot and killed execution-style in Brooklyn.

De Blasio weaved through the officers on his way to the presser with Police Commissioner Bill Bratton at Woodhull Hospital Saturday evening.

And let’s not forget that this is exactly what the Brown/Garner protesters were calling for.

BREAKING -- Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead — execution style — as they sat in their marked police car... UPDATE: mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown...

THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY -- UPDATES BELOW

NY Post: Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of the two officers, whose names were being withheld pending family notification of their deaths.

The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank in their heads by the lone gunman, who approached them on foot from the sidewalk at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues in Bed-Stuy.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot through their front passenger window.

The post included an image of silver automatic handgun with a wooden handle. Another post showed camouflage pants and blue sneakers which matched the clothing the dead gunman was wearing as his body was carried from the scene on a stretcher.

“They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, signing off with, “This May Be My Final Post.”

The gunman was a fugitive who had just murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore Saturday morning, sources told The Post.

Minutes after shooting the two officers, he, too, was dead.

He fled to a nearby subway station, the G-train station at Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, where, as pursuing cops closed in, he shot himself on a crowded platform, sources told The Post.

“They engaged the guy and he did himself,” one investigator said of the gunman’s demise.

Both shooting scenes — above and below ground — were scenes of blood and terror.

Chris Matthews compares an "incredibly strong" Obama to Winston Churchill

MATTHEWS: Let’s bring on Chuck Todd, moderator of “Meet the press.” It seems like the president has gotten himself into this conversation. Was Sony right? The president jumps in and says, no, kids out in Hollywood, I’m a grownup. You know what, you made a mistake. You did. You buckled. You appeased. Very strong statement. You should have talked to me.

Todd: Incredibly strong. I mean, that — look, that whole press conference, that was a president who thinks he’s earned to have some swagger, the way he answered questions, and dealt with certain issues and not brushing them off in snarky ways, just feeling very confident. But on Sony, it is clear, he seems incredibly — look, there had been some question, did Sony consult ask homeland security? Was there some reason here that Sony decided to pull the release itself and things like that. Boy, he wanted to make it unequivocal, they didn’t consult the government. And they made a mistake. I mean, there’s already a hashtag starting on Twitter #sonyweakbostonstrong. When he threw Boston on there, talk about a little extra sting in the criticism to Sony on this one.

MATTHEWS: Yeah, you Churchill, me chamberlain. Let’s go to the long term trajectory here."

Family Demands Justice After SWAT Team Mistakenly Throws Grenade Into Their Baby’s Crib

(by Reid Mene, IJReview) -- Saying that Alecia and Bounkham Phonesavanh have had a challenging year would be an incredible understatement.

First, in the spring of 2014, the Phonesavanh family found themselves homeless after their house in Janesville, Wisconsin was destroyed by a fire.

With nowhere to go, they packed up all their remaining possessions into their mini van and drove 850 miles to Bounkham’s sister house in Cornelia, Georgia.

There, they stayed in the garage, converting it into a bedroom where parents Bounkham and Alecia, 7-year-old Emma, 5-year-old Mali, 3-year-old Charlie and 18-month-old Bounkham Jr., known as “Bou Bou,” all slept.

After two months of living in Bounkham’s sister’s garage, they finally found a new home in Wisconsin, where they planned to start fresh again.

But then their lives were turned upside down again, all because of a mistake by the police.

On May 28, at approximately 2 am, the family’s home was suddenly bombarded by a S.W.A.T. team.

The Habersham County Sheriff’s Office burst unannounced into the bedroom where Alecia and Bounkham were sleeping and began throwing “flash-bang” grenades.

One of the grenades landed in little Bou Bou’s pack-and-play, where he was sleeping:

“Bou Bou started screaming,” recalls Alecia Phonesavanh. “I immediately went to grab him.”

But before Alecia could get to Bou Bou, Habersham Deputy Jason Stribling picked him up and took him out of the house.

Alecia begged the officer to give back her child, but he refused to do so:

“I kept telling him, ‘Just give me my son. He’s scared. He needs me. The officer wouldn’t. And then he walked out of the room with Bou Bou and I didn’t see him again.”

It wasn’t until after the blast that police realized that Bou Bou wasn’t just screaming because he was scared, but because the flash-bang grenade had severely burned his face and torso and collapsed his left lung.

To make matters worse, when Alecia asked if her son was okay, officers lied to her:

“I asked if he got hurt. And they said, ‘No, your son is fine. He has not sustained any serious injury,” Alecia remembers. “They ended up telling us that he had lost a tooth.”

But it wasn’t long before the Phonesavanh family realized they were being lied to, when Bounkham saw blood and burn marks all over Bou Bou’s crib, along with a pillow that had exploded from the grenade.

Bou Bou was immediately taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, where doctors placed him in a medically-induced coma:

“’His chest wall had torn down to muscle,’ says Dr. Walter Ingram, head of Grady’s burn trauma unit. ‘And it tore his face down to bone, down to his teeth.’”

Limbaugh: Worst Is Yet To Come As Obama Shifts Into Dictator Mode To Achieve All His Most Evil Plans For Next 2 Years

"I have warned you."

"I have warned you."

(Politico) -- Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is calling President Barack Obama’s move to normalize U.S.-Cuban relations “chump change” compared to what else the president has in store for his last two years.

“I have warned all of you people,” Limbaugh said on his radio show on Wednesday. “I have warned you that these two years of the Obama administration are gonna actually be what he would have done if he’d had total control and did not have to worry about the Constitution for the first two years.”

“This is just the beginning. This is just a teaser, appetizer, for what is on tap the next two years,” Limbaugh said. Keep reading...

Obama’s Theme for the New Year: ‘We Can’t Be Stopped’

OBAMA PRESS CONFERENCE

(The Daily Signal) -- A relaxed President Obama held a year-end press conference this afternoon, where he reflected on his first six years in office and looked ahead to the last quarter of his presidency.

In a brief prepared statement and then a lengthy question-and-answer session, Obama weighed in on issues such as the U.S. economy, relations with Congress, Ferguson, his recent deal with Cuba and Sony’s decision to cancel the release of a movie due to a cyber attack from North Korea.

He also revealed his theme for the new year.

“My theme for the end of the year is that we have gone through difficult times, but through persistence and effort and faith in the American people, things get better,” Obama said.

“Part of what I hope as I reflect on the new year is that this should generate some confidence. America knows how to solve problems. When we work together, we can’t be stopped.”

King Obama: I Will Use Executive Actions To Improve Race Relations…

lord-king-obama-1024x719.jpg

RCP:

At his end of the year press conference on Friday, President Obama addressed the task force on race relations he put together following the grand jury decisions of the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. The president says the report will not be “abstract musings” but instead “concrete, practical things” that law enforcement agencies can “begin implementing right now to rebuild trust between communities of color and the police department.”

“The task force that I formed is supposed to report back to me in 90 days,” President Obama said. “My intention is to, as soon as I get those recommendations, to start implementing them. Some of them I’ll be able to do through executive actions, some of them will require Congressional action, some of them will require action on the part of states and local jurisdictions.

Obama’s Political Career Began With Castro-backed Terrorist

by ALEX NEWMAN | THE NEW AMERICAN 

While Obama framed his latest decrees on U.S. relations with the brutal Communist Cuban dictatorship this week as a way to “help” the people of Cuba and serve “American interests,” he failed to mention an important detail of his life that may have played a role in the decision.

More than a decade before becoming president, Obama launched his fledgling political career in the home of an unrepentant communist terrorist whose murderous organization was backed primarily by none other than the ruthless Castro regime in Havana. That terrorist, of course, was William Ayers (shown), co-founder of the Weather Underground infamous for bombings, terror attacks, robberies, and murders across the United States.

As part of the broad policy changes decreed by Obama this week, the U.S. government will release spies and a convicted murderer working for the savage Communist dictatorship. In exchange, the Castro regime released American hostage Alan Gross, a man who was attempting to bring Internet to some of the enslaved Cuban people, who have virtually no access to information other than regime propaganda.

Around the world, communists and dictators celebrated the announcement that Obama was once again negotiating — or outright surrendering, perhaps — to hostage-taking terrorists. Globalists, long working to legitimize (and before that, bring to power) the Cuban regime also declared victory after the announcement.

When 150 Women Refused To Be ISIS’ Sex Brides, The Terrorists Made a Horrifying Example Out of Them

(by Justen Charters, IJReview) -- As the Islamic State continues its merciless campaign of terror across the Middle East, they are forcing thousands of women into sex slavery and marriage. But not just that – they’re ripping away the childhood of many girls, with some jihadist brides reportedly as young as 14.

Not so surprisingly, when 150 women (mostly of the Yazidi faith) refused to enter into marriage with the bloodthirsty killers, ISIS responded in the most heinous way. According to the Anadolu Agency:

According to a ministry statement released Tuesday, ISIS militants carried out a number of attacks in Fallujah and buried the victims in mass graves in one of the city’s neighborhoods.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said. “Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats.”

In addition, ISIS published in its English propaganda magazine Dabiq that it sees nothing wrong with taking Yazidis as sex slaves because they are viewed as “unbelievers and infidels.”

To make matters worse, the Islamic State is targeting impressionable girls online in the same manner as human traffickers and sexual predators.

They invite the girls to area controlled by ISIS terrorists by promising money and comfort. Then, as can be evidenced by the case of two Austrian teenagers who fled to Syria…

the girls eventually realize it’s a literal hell on earth and want to come back home.

Clearly, the real “war on women” is happening in Syria and Iraq. And ISIS isn’t showing any signs of abandoning their venomous ideology or inhumane behavior towards those who refuse to submit to their total-control terrorist state.

Professors Want Kindergartners Taught About Racial Tolerance Using Picture Books To Stop “Another Ferguson”…

42-16875425

Campus Reform:

Three faculty members at the University of Texas at Austin claimed that the best way to prevent “another Ferguson” is to start teaching tolerance to kindergarteners.

In a December 17th editorial in the Washington Post, the three faculty members, led by Jennifer Keys Adair, a professor of early childhood education, argue that children as young as nine-years-old harbor prejudices that can last a lifetime. The professors imply that Officer Darren Wilson—who fatally shot black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.—killed because of his childhood prejudices.

“If we’d like to keep what happened in Ferguson from ever happening again, we have to stop the fear and damaging disconnect many white people have when in the presence of black males,” the academics write in their piece.

One of the ways to prevent this “fear,” they argue, is by “[influencing] young children’s racial attitudes” through “picture books [that are] about the everyday lives of black men so that racial diversity becomes normalized for young children.”

Obama apologizes to Castro -- Cuban communist leader lectures president for 30 minutes

(WeeklyStandard) Barack Obama apologized to Cuban president Raul Castro during their phone conversation after the American commander in chief’s opening remarks. Speaking to reporters at his final White House press briefing of 2014 Friday afternoon, Obama gave more details about his phone call with the communist leader of Cuba earlier this week before the announcement of a change in U.S. policy on the Caribbean island nation.

Obama began the phone call with Castro with what he described as 15 minutes of opening comments. It was the first conversation between the heads of state in both countries since 1961.

ALERT -- Search warrants planned for Sean Hannity, conservative media

(Legal Insurrection) -- We have extensively covered the Wisconsin John Doe investigations.

The extremely abbreviated version is that Milwaukee County prosecutor John Chisholm has led two distinct investigations of conservatives in Wisconsin. John Doe No. 1 targeted Scott Walker’s term as Milwaukee County Executive. That case is over, and no wrongdoing by Walker was uncovered.

John Doe No. 2 involved allegations that a wide range of Wisconsin conservatives engaged in illegal coordination with Walker in the Recall Election, which Walker won.

John Doe No. 2 has resulted in federal and state litigation, with conservative individuals and groups asserting that the wide-ranging seizure of records violated their constitutional righs.

Currently, the probe effectively is shut down by a state court judge’s ruling refusing to issue any more search warrants, and a federal court’s decision that Wisconsin could not apply the state campaign laws so as to prohibit issue coordination.  A separate federal case on that legal point may be headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Now some more information, via M.D. Kittle at Wisconsin Reporter, who has been the leading reporter covering the various John Doe proceedings and cases, regarding yet another lawsuit, against the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board.

Rogue agency defied judges to carry out partisan probe of Wisconsin conservatives:

Agents for the embattled state Government Accountability Board continued a zealous campaign finance investigation into dozens of conservative groups even after judges who preside over the board voted to shut it down, according to a previously sealed brief made public Friday.

The documents, from an updated complaint filed by conservative plaintiffs in a case against the GAB, appear to support claims that the campaign finance, ethics and election law regulator is a rogue agency. They also show that the GAB considered using the state’s John Doe law to investigate key state conservatives and even national figures, including Fox News’ Sean Hannity and WTMJ Milwaukee host Charlie Sykes.

 

Wisconsin Reporter also obtained some of its information from previous court documents that were supposed to have been redacted.

“What we have uncovered so far shows the Government Accountability Board, or at least its staff, being anything but ‘accountable,’” said Eddie Greim, attorney for plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the GAB. “For example, the public has learned for the first time, over GAB’s objections, that GAB set up a secret system of Gmail accounts for its staffers and the prosecutors who ran the John Doe. We also know that GAB hoped its ‘illegal coordination’ theory could even extend to allow it to subpoena media figures like Charlie Sykes and Sean Hannity.”

Here is the relevant paragraph from the First Amended Complaint (via Wisconsin Reporter)(emphasis added):

75. The search warrants and subpoenas extended to targets throughout Wisconsin. In addition to the subpoenas received by Mr. O’Keefe and the Club, it has since been publicly revealed that R.J. Johnson, Kate Doner, Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, Friends of Scott Walker, and Governor Scott Walker were also subjects of search warrants or subpoenas. These identities were revealed during a Federal Civil Rights Action that challenged the constitutionality of Doe proceeding. See O’Keefe, et al. v. Schmitz et al., Case No. 2:14-cv-00139 (E.D. Wis. Feb. 10, 2014). Many more warrants and subpoenas were planned for other targets throughout the country, including media figures such as Charlie Sykes and Sean Hannity. See Investigation Planning – Meeting Notes, Ex. F at 7; see also Investigation Status Update – Meeting Notes, Ex. L at 8.

Governor implies parents incapable of educating kids

(WND) -- Despite the success homeschoolers have demonstrated in higher education, many politicians still seem to think parents are incapable of educating their children.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, is the latest to raise concerns about children who don’t attend public or private schools, drawing a request from the world’s leading homeschool advocacy group, the Homeschool Legal Defense Association, HSLDA, for an apology.

In a speech at a luncheon Tuesday, Hickenlooper said government “should do what people individually can’t do, or can’t do well themselves — you know, educating our young people, making sure our roads are designed and built properly, making sure our communities are safe.”

HSLDA responded, noting there are “tens of thousands of children in Colorado whose parents educate them quite well at home.”

Studies by the National Home Education Research Institute have found that homeschoolers who go on to college outperform their peers. USA Today reported homeschoolers graduated college at a higher rate than their peers ­— 66.7 percent compared to 57.5 percent — and earned higher grade point averages, according to a study that compared students at one doctoral university from 2004-2009.

HSLDA is calling on the Colorado governor to retract his remarks and issue an “apology to the tens of thousands of parents who save the state millions of dollars and responsibly and competently educate their own children at home.”
