obama decapitated grim reaper halloween display idaho

All’s fair in presidential political gore?

CANYON COUNTY, Idaho (KBOI) – On a rural road just outside of Nampa you can find a scary yard decked out for Halloween. Richard Piersol says, “I’ve got the Grim Reaper on the ATV, and Obama’s head is on the spear and he has been decapitated.”

Piersol says that he likes decorating for Halloween and this year he let his views be known.

“It’s like free speech. I am pretty much saying I don’t like his politics, and I don’t like him. That’s it,” Piersol said.

He says the display has nothing to do with race.

“I’ve got a couple of African American friends of mine that have given me more ideas to put out there to make it look gorier. And it’s like ‘no, I don’t want to do that. That might offend somebody,’” he said.

“We’re Screwed” CBS’ Major Garrett On Hot Mic At Ebola Press Briefing (VIDEO)

An illuminating public peek into what White House correspondents thought were their private thoughts about the government’s response to the Ebola crisis. Spoiler: Travel ban

Via TRUTHstreammedia:

For a little insight into what the American mainstream media really thinks (but will never say), check out what CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garret and two of his colleagues had to say when Garrett apparently forgot his mic was still on after the White House’s October 3rd press briefing on the government’s Ebola response ended.

Now, Aaron and I are in no way saying “we’re screwed.” We’re just trying to show you these mainstream reporters obviously don’t believe the government b.s. any more than we do…yet they go on prime time TV and tell everyone exactly what the government wants us all to hear night after night. It really is all a dog and pony show, and this clip is just more obvious proof of that.

Fox News’ Bret Baier Exclusive Report: “Stand Down” 13 Hours At Benghazi The Untold Story [VIDEO]

September 5, 2014 at 11:00 am

Speaking publicly for the first time US security team members on the ground during the night of the attack on the secret CIA annex in Benghazi claim they were told “Stand down, you need to wait.” by “Bob” a top CIA Officer in Benghazi.


(Fox News) 13 Hours The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi–A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.

Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night [Sept. 5, 2014] at 10 p.m. (EDT).

Based on the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team, the special sets aside the political spin that has freighted the Benghazi issue for the last two years, presenting a vivid, compelling narrative of events from the perspective of the men who wore the “boots on the ground.”

The security contractors — Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto, Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen — spoke exclusively, and at length, to Fox News about what they saw and did that night. Baier, Fox News’ Chief Political Anchor, asked them about one of the most controversial questions arising from the events in Benghazi: Was help delayed?

Word of the attack on the diplomatic compound reached the CIA annex just after 9:30 p.m. Within five minutes, the security team at the annex was geared up for battle, and ready to move to the compound, a mile away.

“Five minutes, we’re ready,” said Paronto, a former Army Ranger. “It was thumbs up, thumbs up, we’re ready to go.”

But the team was held back. According to the security operators, they were delayed from responding to the attack by the top CIA officer in Benghazi, whom they refer to only as “Bob.”

“It had probably been 15 minutes I think, and … I just said, ‘Hey, you know, we gotta– we need to get over there, we’re losing the initiative,’” said Tiegen. “And Bob just looks straight at me and said, ‘Stand down, you need to wait.’”

Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson Was Awarded Commendation For “Extraordinary Effort In Line Of Duty” (February 2014)

August 16, 2014 at 1:41 pm

Not only was officer Wilson doing his job, he was doing it right.

(Yahoo) –FERGUSON, Mo. — Six months before he shot and killed an unarmed teenager, police Officer Darren Wilson earned a commendation for his “extraordinary effort in the line of duty.”

Yahoo News confirmed the award through the February 11 Ferguson City Council meeting minutes and photos Wilson’s father posted to his Facebook page.

“Very proud of my son, Darren Wilson on his receiving a Commendation from his Police Department,” John Wilson wrote on February 11. “Congratulations Son.”

One image shows Wilson shaking hands and receiving the commendation from Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson. In a second photo, the tall and slender Wilson brandishes smile as he returns to his seat with his honor.

Details of what the 28-year-old officer did to earn the commendation weren’t immediately available. (The Facebook page for the officer’s father appears to have been deactivated shortly after Yahoo News first published this story on Saturday morning.)

……

Wilson, a longtime Missouri resident, has been an officer in Ferguson for four years and served in nearby Jennings for two years prior. Jackson said Wilson has no history of disciplinary action and described him as a “gentle man” and a “quiet officer.”

“He has been an excellent officer for the police department,” Jackson said.

@STLCountyPD: Name Released By Anonymous; ‘Bryan Willman’ Is NOT Officer Involved In #MikeBrown Shooting –Anon Twitter Acct Suspended

August 14, 2014 at 11:55 am

ST. LOUIS (CBS St. Louis/AP) — Internet hacking group “Anonymous” released Thursday morning on Twitter what they claimed to be the alleged name of the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown last weekend.

The group then warned that they will continue to release the officer’s photo, then his address, and finally “full documents” within hours if the St. Louis County Police Department does not respond.

However, the St. Louis County Police Department responded that the name the group posted is false. The department tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the name Anonymous released is not a Ferguson or a St. Louis County police officer. [...]

Below St Louis County PD conversing with Anonymous on Twitter before the account was suspended. Which is why it now appears to be one-sided.

‘Bryan Willman’; who Anonymous has  falsely claimed to be the officer who fatally shot 18 year old Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri could be the Bryan Willman who is on the St Ann, Missouri police force:

bryan willman st ann mo pd not mike brown shooter

St. Ann …Ferguson…call me crazy but I do not see the similarity.

Contradicting Prior IRS Claims, IRS Commish Confirms Lois Lerner Backup Tapes Found UPDATE: Gowdy vs Koskinen Video

July 23, 2014 at 12:17 pm

obama irs attack dog conservative enemies list
Oh, what a tangled web we weave: When first we practice to deceive.

(Fox) –The head of the IRS confirmed Wednesday that investigators looking into missing emails from ex-agency official Lois Lerner have found and are reviewing “backup tapes” — despite earlier IRS claims that the tapes had been recycled.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know “how they found them” or “whether there’s anything on them or not.” But he said the inspector general’s office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any “recoverable” material.

The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the missing emails, that backup tapes “no longer exist because they have been recycled.”

It is unclear whether the tapes in IG custody contain any Lerner emails, but Koskinen said investigators are now checking.

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee first raised questions about the backup tapes on Monday, releasing a partial transcript from an interview with IRS official Thomas Kane. In it, Kane said “there is an issue” as to whether all the backup tapes were destroyed. Asked if they might still exist, he said he didn’t know but “it’s an issue that’s being looked at.”

Lerner Hard Drive Was “Scratched” IRS ignored advice to use outside experts to recover data

Washington, DC – Despite early refusals to make available IT professionals who worked on Lois Lerner’s computer, Ways and Means Committee investigators have now learned from interviews that the hard drive of former IRS Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner was “scratched,” but data was recoverable. In fact, in-house professionals at the IRS recommended the Agency seek outside assistance in recovering the data. That information conflicts with a July 18, 2014 court filing by the Agency, which stated the data on the hard drive was unrecoverable – including multiple years’ worth of missing emails.

“It is unbelievable that we cannot get a simple, straight answer from the IRS about this hard drive,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI). “The Committee was told no data was recoverable and the physical drive was recycled and potentially shredded. To now learn that the hard drive was only scratched, yet the IRS refused to utilize outside experts to recover the data, raises more questions about potential criminal wrong doing at the IRS.”

It is also unknown whether the scratch was accidental or deliberate, but former federal law enforcement and Department of Defense forensic experts consulted by the Committee say that most of the data on a scratched drive, such as Lerner’s, should have been recoverable. However, in a declaration filed last Friday by the IRS, the agency said it tried but failed to recover the data, but is not sure what happened to the hard drive afterwards other than saying they believe it was recycled, which, according to the court filing means “shredded.”

Further complicating the situation, the Committee’s investigation has revealed evidence that this declaration may not be accurate. A review of internal IRS IT tracking system documents revealed that Lerner’s computer was actually once described as “recovered.”

Photo & Video: US Flags On Brooklyn Bridge Replaced With White Flags -Update 3

July 22, 2014 at 9:49 am

extralarge
Symbolism.

(DNA Info) –MANHATTAN — American flags were removed from atop the Brooklyn Bridge’s two towers Tuesday morning and replaced by white flags, sources said.

Police were checking surveillance footage from the bridge after images of the white flags hit social media about 7 a.m., sources said.

“Why are there white flags on top of the Brooklyn Bridge?” City Council member Mark Weprin tweeted at 9:34 a.m.

It was not immediately clear how the white flags, which are usually a military symbol for surrender, got there. [...]

An astonishing security breach. Mischievous pranksters, political protest or a terrorist warning?

More photos at link.

ABC has live stream of one of the white flags flying here.

Video of a white flag flying atop the Brooklyn Bridge.

UPDATE: This close up shot reveals what appears to be a faded (whitewashed?) US Flag.

NYPD scaling the bridge to remove the flags.

UPDATE 2:
Unsettling. The Brooklyn Bridge security breach could have lasted up to two hours.
NBC New York:

A city employee tells NBC 4 New York the flags are 12 feet by 18 feet in size; the employee estimated it could take up to two hours to take a flag down from the bridge and raise another up

Counter-terrorism measure –FAIL

Officials question how vandals could have stolen the U.S. banners off Brooklyn Bridge, which as a terrorism target is under constant scrutiny.

The substitute banners — which typically signal surrender — were flying Tuesday morning from atop the 273-foot towers on the venerable bridge, police said.

It was unclear who was responsible, what happened to the missing American flags — and how the thieves gained access to a possible terrorism target under constant security.

The Brooklyn Bridge is considered a high-profile location, and there is a marked NYPD patrol car positioned on the Manhattan side of the bridge at all times as a counterterrorism measure.

According to the above article the flags are illuminated at night. Yet the NYC counter-terrorism cop on duty was asleep at the wheel, leaving a two hour window of opportunity WIDE open.  New Yorkers should breathe a collective sigh of relief  that the breach was not an islamic jihad bomb plot.

Not precedent setting. In 2004 left-wing extremists took a US Flag hostage.

It was not the first theft of a U.S. flag from the bridge. During the Republican National Convention in 2004, protesters made off with the flag and demanded the release of demonstrators arrested by the NYPD.

Reaching the flags is a difficult and dangerous trip handled by specially trained Department of Transportation workers.

More here.

UPDATE 3:

(ABC) –Police officials said this afternoon that they have surveillance video of a group of four or five individuals walking onto the bridge shortly after 3 a.m.

Authorities said that at around 3:30 a.m., the lights that illuminate the U.S. flags on either side of the bridge could be seen flickering and then going out completely. At 5:30 a.m., construction workers noticed that two seemingly-white flags had replaced the American flags, police said.

[NYPD Commissioner Bill] Bratton said there was a 13-minute gap between the tower lights going out and the white flags going up.

When police investigated the scene, they found that the two American flags had been apparently bleached and large aluminum tins had been tied to cover the lights that illuminate the flags.
