But much to Dr. Carson’s credit the thin skinned narcissist did not get one.
(Daily Caller) –Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year.
Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20.
“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”
The appeaser in chief could not even bring himself to say “extremism”. Of course the most appropriate term ‘Islamic jihad’ is not in O’s vocab.
A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier. And we send our thoughts and prayers to those still struggling to recover.
We also know that the most vivid images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety. Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on – perseverance, freedom and love.
One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us – learning to stand, walk, dance and run again. With each new step our country is moved by the resilience of a community and a city. And when the sun rises over Boylston Street next Monday – Patriot’s Day – hundreds of thousands will come together to show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again.
America…A land where illegal cattle are detained but illegal aliens are allowed to roam free
Should illegal aliens be charged “grazing fees”? Should the Mexican govt also be charged a ‘fee’ since they encourage illegal immigration into the U.S.?
(Judicial Watch) –A little-known side of the heated Mexican border security issue is that government workers risk their lives to clean up the huge amounts of trash left by illegal immigrants in secluded desert areas with rigorous terrain.
The job is becoming increasingly difficult and dangerous as illegal aliens use more remote paths to avoid stepped up enforcement along the vast U.S.-Mexico border, according to testimony delivered recently by the director of Arizona’s Department of Environmental Quality. The state official, Henry Darwin, recently testified before an Arizona Senate committee in charge of border security and other related matters.
Each year illegal immigrants leave behind an estimated 2,000 tons of trash—including soiled diapers, plastic bottles and abandoned vehicles—in public Arizona lands along the border, Darwin said, and it’s becoming tougher to clean up the huge mess. “These are dangerous areas,” Darwin told the panel. “These are known areas of illegal immigration, illegal drug trafficking.”
What is Arizona Border Trash? Border trash refers to items discarded by persons involved in **illegal immigration** such as plastic containers, clothing, backpacks, foodstuffs, vehicles, bicycles and paper. It can also consist of human waste and sometimes medical products.
The problem is so severe that the state created a special web site dedicated to trash along Arizona’s 370-mile border with Mexico. It includes pictures of southern border areas covered with piles of waste as well as alarming statistics. For instance, the thousands of tons of trash discarded by illegal immigrants annually is having a detrimental environmental impact and affecting the area’s human health and the economic wellbeing.
Listed examples include strewn trash and piles, illegal trails and paths, erosion and watershed degradation, damaged infrastructure and property and loss of vegetation and wildlife. There is also lots of vandalism, graffiti and damage to historical and archaeological sites. Adding insult to injury, taxpayers pick up the exorbitant tab to clean it up. This so-called “landfill fee” ranges from $37 to $49 per ton in southern Arizona and that doesn’t even include costs for materials, equipment, labor and transportation.
For years American taxpayers have financed never-ending cleanup efforts along the southern border. That’s because millions of pounds of trash and human waste are left by illegal immigrants who cross through federal and state parks during their trek from Mexico into the U.S. A few years ago the federal government invested $63 million to clean up 25 million pounds of trash in the country’s most prized national forests, including Arizona’s Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and California’s Cleveland National Forest.
The BLM announced it would stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy Saturday morning. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years and has spent the past week gathering the cattle from land near Gold Butte.
The agency said it was stopping the roundup because of concerns about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.
With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.
The I-Team has learned the deal to end the gather was brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie. [...]
[...]Although Bundy declared victory after the BLM announced an end to the roundup on Saturday because of concerns for the safety of those present, the issue is hardly settled.
BLM spokesman Craig Leff told the Associated Press the agency would continue to try to resolve the matter involving rancher Cliven Bundy and the $1 million in owed grazing fees “administratively and judicially.”
“The door isn’t closed. We’ll figure out how to move forward with this,” he said, adding that the BLM did not participate in the negotiation moderated by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie that deescalated tensions on Saturday.
“The BLM and National Park Service did not cut any deal and negotiate anything,” Leff said. “There was no deal we made.”
Bundy supporters are not quite declaring victory yet either.
David Rawls of Arizona has been battling over mining claims he said his family has operated since 1949 that he said the government took from him. The 70-year-old arrived Saturday to back up Bundy and plans to stay for several more days. [...]
[...]The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev.[...]
I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity. And if you don’t believe that, you look at the way — forget about me, forget about me — you look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me, forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?
Holder; an indefensible ignorant race whore, doing what an indefensible ignorant race whore does… wield his skin color as a weapon.
Oh the horror! Lock them up and throw away the key. Roll eyes…
What is the deal with reports of cops behaving as if they are on steroids becoming more commonplace?
(WSBTV) –HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — A fifth-grader says he was terrified when a police officer pointed a gun at him and his friends while they built a tree fort.
Omari Grant, 11, said he and his friends often play in a wooded area behind his home and were building a fort when a neighbor in the next subdivision called police to complain about what the boys were doing.
But no one anticipated what Omari and his mother say happened next.
“I guess the release of tension was like, ‘Mom, he had a gun in my face, Mommy. Mommy, he had a gun in my face,’” said Janice Baptiste, Omari’s mother.
Omari told Diamant that two officers, one with his gun drawn, rolled up on him and a few of his friends as they built a fort in the trees behind his home.
“I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Omari said.
Omari said the officer holding his gun also used foul language and made him and his friends lay down on the ground.
No arrests were made but the department is now investigating the officer’s actions after Baptiste filed an excessive force complaint.
Vile inhumane trash spawning vile inhumane trash. Darlene Jones’ son raped his female captive for HOURS and all she can think about is revenge against the authorities who took the heinous monster she gave birth to off of the streets.
Rapist Markeon Jones
(KMOV) — Serious threats were made inside the St. Louis County Family Court after a suspect’s mother reportedly vowed to inflict physical harm onto employees.
According to court documents, Darlene Jones, was in court as her 16-year-old son Markeon Jones was being certified to stand court as an adult last December. Police say M. Jones broke in a University City home where he robbed and sexually assaulted a young woman for hours.
Police say Darlene Jones became angry and fired off threats to a juvenile officer.
