Fatah: There Are No Innocent Israelis

Published on Aug 27, 2014
Member of Fatah Central Committee Abbas Zaki:
"I'm against signing the Rome Statute (i.e., joining the International Criminal Court) as long as our country is occupied. If tomorrow you shoot, they’ll say you signed an agreement. This is not meant for people who want to liberate their country... I think the [Palestinian] people’s weapon is pure - they don’t want to kill. By the way, there are no innocent Israelis."

Muslim Terrorists Kill 200 Captured Syrian Soldiers, CAIR Has No Comment

[From article]
Sickening footage appears to show Islamic State militants parading around 250 captured soldiers through the desert in their underwear before they are killed and their bodies piled on the bare earth.
An Islamic State fighter claimed the men were from the Syrian government's Tabqa air base which extremists seized on Sunday, handing them warplanes, helicopters, tanks, artillery and ammunition.
The video, which has not been independently verified, is too graphic to be published in full.
It begins by showing dozens of men being marched through the desert wearing only their underwear. It then fades to black, resuming with a pile of bloodied bodies stacked on top of one another.

The terrorist group Hamas fired at least 117 rockets into Israel Sunday,CNN reported, as violence there escalated again. But major U.S. media have censored Palestinian's anti-American reaction to this ongoing attack on an ally. In one Al Jazeera America video, children cheered on the rockets, wishing they would land in the United States.

Black Leaders Deceived Poor Black Persons, Anger White People

A similar pattern exists in the Middle East with Palestinians. They too are lied to by their leaders blaming Israelis and Jews for their plight. 

[From article]
American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred.
None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education. Police target them because so many more young black men are criminal thugs than young men of other colors. Women clutch their purses when a black man gets on an elevator not because they’re racist but because the statistics and the facts they have seen with their own eyes have taught them that that’s the wise thing to do. People aren’t suspicious of young black men in hoodies because people are ignorant or bigoted. They’re suspicious because reason and experience tell them that young black men in hoodies are threatening.
O. J. Simpson wasn’t innocent. Tawana Brawley wasn’t raped and neither was Crystal Mangum. George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense. There is always racism everywhere, but America may be the least racist country on earth. For black people to think otherwise is to believe lies created to keep a narrative in place. The narrative gives the people who create it power and an appearance of virtue — Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, the news media and the rest. As for poor black people, the narrative keeps them poor and angry and helpless and so destroys their lives.

Two Updates: Harvard "VERITAS" University Officials Lie as Often as Obama, Deval Patrick and Holder, Combined

Last updated Thursday August 22, 2014 7:55 AM ET

At 5:55 AM, Friday August 22, 2014, one hour and five minutes before legal, a large white truck sounded its back up warning beeper and backed into the loading dock on Broadway at the new Harvard University renovated museum. At about 6:20 AM the same day the below van arrived to deliver equipment for the ongoing construction. The former Fogg Museum is still under construction, contrary to official reports to city officials and interested citizens. These are the latest violations of city ordinance by this $500 million project. Repeated complaints to city officials are ignored. Is it because Harvard University, its employees and contractors enjoy the same constitutional exemption from laws as the Obama-Holder doctrine grants to federal officials? 

Van arrives at about 6:20 AM Friday, August 22, 2014. Large white truck is parked in the driveway of the loading dock to the the left of the van. 

Large white truck which arrived at about 5:55 AM Friday, August 16, 2014 can be seen to the left of the van which arrived at about 6:20 AM. 

At about 6:25 AM Friday August 22, 2014 the driver enters his van to leave, after his delivery.

The below images show two men working on the scaffolding outside the renovated Fogg Museum on Saturday August 16, 2104. It shows again that outside construction is not finished as the mitigation office assured me. That was three months after Harvard University administration declared to city officials at an official meeting that construction was completed. The mitigation office explained they "meant to say outside construction was completed." Harvard University officials and their mitigation  office sound more and more like Obama and Holder explaining the meaning of what they say.

On Wednesday August 13, 2014 at about 7:30 AM the dumpster truck was unloading an empty one to pick up a full one. It was legal except for the parking in a No Stopping zone. After several requests that these trucks park on the museum side of the street, also a No Stopping zone, the Harvard University contractors and employees ignored my requests. There are 15 residential units on the side where this dumpster contractor parks.

On Thursday August 14, 2014 at about 6:30 AM 30 minutes before the legal period for construction in  Cambridge, MA, the crane parked in the driveway of the loading dock for the renovated Harvard University museum began sounding its warning beeper. The crane was lowered and then moved. It was a violation of City ordinance. But again Harvard University subscribes to the Obama-Holder doctrine of ignoring inconvenient laws.

Posted August 8, 2014 5:59 PM ET; Last updated August 11, 2014 3:23 AM ET

In the days after this report was posted Harvard University campus police and their criminal associates (psychologists, police informants, man-hating feminists, lesbians and assorted control freaks) conducted a criminal project of intimidation using young women as bait to try to have me arrested for whatever fantasy they might create in their psychotic minds. It is and was only the latest instance of many years of intimidation of a citizen (moi) by Harvard University campus police, in the free exercise of a constitutionally protected right. That is a felony in Massachusetts. However, also in Massachusetts there is a secret constitutional exemption for Harvard University employees from any inconvenient laws. Plus within the city limits of Cambridge MA, laws are optional. Local officials and university officials adopted the Obama-Holder doctrine which is the White House exemption from U.S. laws and the Constitution. It makes for an exciting nation. Do what you want to do. If it feels good try it, you'll like it. Don't worry. Be happy.

Three months after Harvard University officials boasted to Cambridge City officials that "construction was finished" on the $500 million renovation of the former Fogg Museum, construction continues annoying neighbors and violating city ordinances.

Crane in loading dock driveway of renovated Harvard University Museum

At about 6:30 AM on Monday August 4, 2104, 30 minutes before it is legal to conduct construction in the City of Cambridge, a large crane on a truck at the loading dock of the renovated museum began sounding the loud back up warning signal beeper, which continued for about 30 seconds.

The next day at about 6:30 AM on Tuesday August 5, 2014, 30 minutes before it is legal to conduct construction in the City of Cambridge, the driver of a large truck carrying a dumpster set the air breaks about ten feet from my windows. Fifteen residential units face that street. Within a few minutes he dropped the dumpster on the street in a No Stopping Zone, on Broadway between Quincy Street and Prescott Street.

In June 2014, there were a series of construction vehicles parked outside of my window and a dumpster used to remove construction materials was dropped outside of my windows in a No Parking Zone. Harvard University, like their prominent alumni occupant of the White House and his cronies, Eric "White people are cowards" Holder and Jeh "Illegal immigrants are needy" Johnson, enjoys a constitutional exemption from inconvenient laws.

In June 2014, I complained to the construction mitigation office that it was a continuing annoyance which I'd complained about many times during the three years of construction. The mitigation office said that outside construction was finished. In August 2014 scaffolding remains on an entire wall and part of another which suggests that outside construction continues as well as inside construction. But the movement and parking of trucks makes noise no matter where the construction is done. It is one more example of intentional deception of the public and an abuse of the privileges which Harvard University enjoys as their prestige and $35 billion endowment allows them.

Fey: I was the one pitching, "Why don't you start her backstage, you know, with Alec, so the crowd won't boo." She had just been booed at a hockey game in Philadelphia, and I thought we had to be cautious. And of course the audience was just happy to see her because she was a star, a media star. Even the New York audience was not feeling their politics at that moment.
Michaels: Tina was terrified of anything where they would be together looking like an endorsement.
Palin: I know that they portrayed me as an idiot, and I hated that, and I wanted to come on the show and counter some of that.
Michaels: [Palin] has wonderful manners — and I honestly don't mean this in a condescending way — but it's that pageant-winner thing.
Palin: If I ran into Tina Fey again today, I would say: "You need to at least pay for my kids' braces or something from all the money that you made off of pretending that you're me! My goodness, you capitalized on that! Can't you contribute a little bit? Jeez!" [. . .] This story first appeared in the Aug. 29 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

TV Guest Objects To Speech About Riots in Missouri

Denial is a strong censorship device. Is he saying that under Obama, Holder, Johnson, Tom Perez and Valerie Jarrett, black voices are censored? Is that because the above ruling quintumvirate fears black voices?

[From article]
MSNBC guest Dr. James Peterson claimed that the media shouldn’t be talking about the violent race riots going on in Missouri over the police shooting of an African-American teenager, calling it “a red herring.”
Peterson spoke with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” Tuesday. The duo discussed the shooting of Michael Brown and the days of riots that have followed — although Peterson wasn’t too keen on discussing the violence and looting at all. (RELATED: News Photographer Needed His War Gear To Cover Missouri Riot Following Police Shooting)
“I think first and foremost, for us to be outraged at the response to the murder of Michael Brown doesn’t make a lot of sense to me,” Peterson claimed. “Because the outrage needs to be directed at the source.”
“They can handle the riot and stop the riot and control the riot,” he said dismissively. “But the real question is can we get our criminal justice system, can we get our police departments, to acknowledge the humanity of black and brown folks?”
[. . .]
“So I think our energy needs to be focused on that,” Peterson asserted. “It’s not that rioting is a good thing, but you know, as MLK said, rioting is sort of the language of the oppressed and those that are silenced. And those young people in that community have been oppressed and they’ve been silenced.”

Misguided Calls For Federal Investigation of Shooting in Missouri

Sharpton is an FBI informant. With Eric "White people are cowards" Holder running the Justice Department it is unlikely an objective investigation can be completed. See two books revealing extreme racial bias against whites in Civil Rights Division.  J. Christian Adams, Injustice; and John Fund and Hans van Spakovsky's Who's Counting?

Sharpton called for the federal government to take over the investigation of the case, criticizing the local police department for not releasing the name of the officer involved in the shooting.
“We did not come to divide this city; we came to bring this city on one accord,” Sharpton said. “But one accord means that we have equal protection under the law.”
Sharpton criticized those who wanted to silence him and the rest of the community.
“There are those who are saying ‘peace,’ but they really just mean ‘quiet’… we want real peace; we don’t want to just be told to shut up and suffer in silence,” he said.

Wisconsin Sheriff Re-Elected Contrary To Bloomberg's Efforts

[From article]
Fresh off his victory in Wednesday's primary, pro-gun rights incumbent sheriff of Milwaukee County, David Clarke, Jr. appeared on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" to fire back at former New York City mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg.
Bloomberg's Independence USA super PAC spent $150,000 to air a series of television ads targeting Clarke's conservative pro-gun policies. But according to Clarke, Bloomberg's efforts to influence the election backfired.
"He came in and thought he could spread a few hundred thousand dollars around to take a prized catch away that he could march around the country with in his failed crusade -- his anti-gun crusade -- and he could hold me up as an example of what might happen to others if they don't get on board with him," Clarke said. "But that didn't work here. The public was actually turned off by it."

Justice Dept. Wrong Agency For Objective Investigation of Race

If any government agency is incapable of doing an objective investigation of a racially charged event, it is the Department of Justice. Its current leader famously declared that "white people are cowards." The current Secretary of Labor, when he was chief of the Civil Rights Division openly refused to prosecute violations in a race neutral manner, contrary to law. See, e.g., J. Christian Adams, Injustice; and John Fund and Hans van Spakovsky's Who's Counting?

[From article]
Both the police department and eyewitnesses agree that the officer pulled up alongside Brown as he walked on the sidewalk, but there are conflicting accounts about what happened next, according to The St. Louis Dispatch.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said Brown “physically assaulted” the officer, pushing him back into his car and trying to take his weapon.
“There was at least one shot fired within the car. After that the officer went back, came back out of the car, he exited his vehicle, and there was a shooting that occurred where the officer in fact shot the subject, and … they were fatal injuries,” Belmar said.
Dorian Johnson, who claims to have been walking with Brown at the time of the shooting, said the officer had demanded that they get off the sidewalk. When they continued walking, he claimed the officer drove up, grabbed Brown by the neck and then shot him.
[. . .]
The lawmakers praised Holder’s move, but said DOJ should consider taking over the investigation. They said the St. Louis County Police Department “may not be the most objective or credible body to investigate civil rights matters involving law enforcement given evidence of racial profiling by that department in the recent past.”
“Only the federal government has the resources, the experience, and the full independence to give this case the close scrutiny that the citizens of Ferguson and the greater St. Louis area deserve,” the lawmakers wrote.

Previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group has announced its intention to reestablish the caliphate and has declared its leader, the shadowy Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the caliph.
The lightning advances the Islamic State made across Syria and Iraq in June shocked the world. But it's not just the group's military victories that have garnered attention — it's also the pace with which its members have begun to carve out a viable state.
 Flush with cash and US weapons seized during its advances in Iraq, the Islamic State's expansion shows no sign of slowing down. In the first week of August alone, Islamic State fighters have taken over new areas in northern Iraq, encroaching on Kurdish territory and sending Christians and other minorities fleeing as reports of massacres emerged.

Elsewhere in territory it has held for some time, the Islamic State has gone about consolidating power and setting up a government dictated by Sharia law. While the world may not recognize the Islamic State, in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the group is already in the process of building a functioning regime.

Here's the inside scoop on the latest voilence in St. Louis. There's a lot of buzz on the ground about a communist group that's bussing members into Ferguson from Chicago. The Revolution Club Chicago members provoked the police with Molotov cocktails the night of August 13th while the local protesters peacefully protested. That's when police then responded with gas and flash grenades. Their reported goal is to make the protests go super-violent, spread across the region, and spark a revolution. They are said to visibly stand out from the local protesters in how they respond to police and intimidate reporters when photos and video are taken of them.

The name "Islamic State" is self-explanatory and was chosen based on the group's goal of establishing a caliphate by conquering as much land in the middle east and around the world as possible, beheading and killing anyone standing in their way.
Regardless of the terrorist group's own classification and stated goals to implement and maintain an Islamist caliphate going back years, the Obama administration wasn't worried about the "absurd" concept and had no plans to stop it from happening according to then White House Counter-Terrorism Advisor and current CIA Secretary John Brennen.
[. . .]
That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counter-terrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are," Brennen said.

Lauren Bacall Dead at 89

Lauren Bacall was my third girlfriend. She followed Sophia Loren and Gina Lollabrigida. I was more mature then, about ten. Never understood what she saw in Bogart, and why she did not leave him for me.  

[From article]
Lauren Bacall, the smoky-voiced movie legend who taught Humphrey Bogart how to whistle in "To Have and Have Not," has died at the age of 89, according to her family.
[. . .]
Bacall launched her career with "To Have and Have Not," the 1944 film that turned "Bogie and Bacall" into one of Hollywood's legendary couples on screen and off.
She was born Betty Joan Perske on Sept. 16, 1924, in New York.
Bacall was a fledgling New York stage actress and a model whose pictures in Harper's Bazaar came to the attention of director Howard Hawks,

Bogart and Bacall, who married in 1945 and were together until his death 12 years later, were teamed up in three more Warner Bros. movies, "The Big Sleep," "Dark Passage" and "Key Largo."
She also costarred with many of the era's biggest names, Kirk Douglas in "Young Man With a Horn", Gary Cooper in "Bright Leaf," Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe in "How to Marry a Millionaire," John Wayne in "Blood Alley," Rock Hudson in "Written on the Wind" and Gregory Peck in "Designing Woman."
In 1961, she married the actor Jason Robards. The couple, who divorced in 1969, had a son,

"Listen, I never went into this business thinking of winning anything," she said. "I went into it because I loved it and I wanted to be good at it. It was a form of expression for me. I love to hide behind characters. So [any recognition] I get is a perk. It's just an extra. Just the fact that all that happened to me last year, it is -- well -- fabulous."

Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske on September 16, 1924, in The Bronx to Natalie Weinstein-Bacall, a Romanian Jewish immigrant, and William Perske, who was born in New Jersey.

Leaving Bogart's hotel room in the film's most memorable scene, she murmured:
‘You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.’
She was less than half Bogart's age, yet as wise and as jaded as him. Her sly glance, with chin down and eyes raised, added to her fame.
The leading man, who was 25 years older than his seductive co-star and married at the time, divorced his wife a short time after the movie's release and married Bacall in Ohio in 1945.

Cheney: Obama Probably Not Reading Intelligence Reports; "Strategically Clueless"

[From article]
Former Vice President Dick Cheney criticized President Barack Obama’s handling of the crisis in Iraq and said that the president probably isn’t reading his intelligence briefings.
In an interview set to air on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Cheney agreed with Charles Krauthammer’s claim that the president is “strategically clueless,” adding that President Obama doesn’t think that US power is beneficial, but rather “part of the problem.” And maintaining that President Obama does not “have the same fundamental set of beliefs that most of our presidents have held over the years.”
Cheney added that President Obama’s past statements that ISIS was “JV” showed that the president is “probably not reading his intelligence, or we’ve got a bigger problem in terms of the quality of the intelligence he is receiving.” He also stated, “to suggest that these guys [ISIS] are just involved in local conflicts, I can’t believe he’s listening to the briefings that I would expect he’s received from the intelligence community, and come out with a statement like that. It shows the depths of his, I guess, his lack of knowledge.”

The plan now is for the cargo to be taken to a government border in the north of Ukraine - rather than through a rebel-held crossing - where the parcels will be checked by the Red Cross and reloaded on to new vehicles, which will then travel to crisis-hit areas in the east of the country.

O'Keefe Crosses Border With Mexico Wearing Osama bin Laden Mask

[From article]
A flamethrowing American conservative activist raised eyebrows in the U.S. on Monday by releasing a video of himself crossing the Rio Grande River from Mexico into Texas, dressed as the late al-Qaeda terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.
Guerrilla documentarian James O'Keefe's footage comes at a time when Americans are engaged in a national debate about border security. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America have entered the U.S. illegally in recent months, drawn by a confusing White House policy that appears to offer amnesty for those who make it safely.
In Monday's video release, O'Keefe focuses on the implications for national security: He illegally crosses into Mexico twice and returns – first in street clothes and again in army fatigues, wearing an Osama bin Laden Halloween mask
[. . .]
The official White House website includes a claim that 'today border security is stronger than it has ever been.'
But O'Keefe told MailOnline that his stunt proves the federal government's policy is lax and needs a dramatic overhaul.
'President Obama is trying to deny the obvious,' he said.
'We proved that border security is national security. The fence is not complete. The border is not secure. In fact, the video shows the border fence is a joke.'

Hamas Fires Rockets Into Israel From Residential Neighborhood

Militants in the Gaza Strip were caught on camera Tuesday morning assembling a rocket launch site which they then used to fire a flurry of rockets into Israel on Wednesday minutes before a ceasefire came into effect in Gaza.
Sreenivasan Jain and NDTV filmed suspected Hamas members assembling the rocket launch site beneath a tent in the middle of a residential neighborhood. The launch site was placed within feet of hotels and apartment blocks in a crowded residential area.
"If Hamas does fire a rocket from here, it would have immediate consequences for everyone around here," Jain said in the NDTV video segment. "The first night that we came here, we did see, or hear, a rocket go off exactly at that plot of land. The hotels opposite us were evacuated because the Israelis sent a warning that there might be a strike on them."

New Jersey Policeman Ignores Laws, Cites Obama's Actions

The comment is self-evidently shocking, but it also provides an insight as to how corruption from the very top reaches all the way down to the bottom, providing law enforcement with a twisted form of justification for their unconstitutional activities.
At the end of the video, other police officers arrive to kick Wronko out of the building, with the cop who doesn’t give a “damn” about constitutional rights stating, “Either you get out or you’re gonna get locked up.”
“Maybe this instance, captured on film for the whole world to see, will serve as a wake up call to those who may still be asleep,” writes Matt Agorist. “Please share this so that it can help others to see the leviathan for what it is, a gang of thieves writ large.”
The only question that remains is if police officers feel they no longer need to follow the Constitution, should Americans be expected to obey the law?

Obama Resumes War in Iraq

This article from the paper of liberal records indicates that they continue to distort reality. Here is the legal definition of genocide, which differs from what the article states. This is not potential genocide it is already in progress. In addition this verifies what some believe that Valerie Jarrett is influencing, if not making policy in the White House.

The crime of genocide is defined in international law in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide.

"Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.[. . .]

[From article]
the militants had trapped thousands of members of Iraqi minority groups on a barren mountaintop, with dwindling supplies, raising concerns about a potential genocide.
[. . .]
Mr. Obama, in a speech late Thursday announcing his decision, insisted this was not a return to war — that Iraq’s fate still ultimately rested in the hands of its three main groups, the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds. But he made clear that he would take action to protect Americans in Erbil and Baghdad.
“We have an embassy in Baghdad, we have a consulate in Erbil, and we have to make sure that they are not threatened,” [. . .] About 8 p.m., the meeting broke up and Mr. Obama again left the White House, an hour late, for a dinner date with his wife and a close confidante, Valerie Jarrett, at an Italian restaurant in Georgetown.
[. . .]
the militants had seized a critical dam in Mosul, which controls water levels on the Tigris River as far south as Baghdad. The capture of the dam shook Kurdish officials and fueled the sense of crisis during Thursday’s meetings, with officials worried that the militants could either blow it up or use it to cut off water supplies or as a bargaining chip in negotiating anything they wanted.
[. . .]
Members of an ancient religious sect known as Yazidi, they were branded as devil worshipers by the militants. The women were to be enslaved; the men were to be slaughtered.
[. . .]
Officials told Mr. Obama there was a real danger of genocide, under the legal definition of the term.

On Thursday evening, after a long day in the West Wing, Mr. Obama had a message for Iraqis: “Today, America is coming to help.”
