Where is the DOJ’s Eric Holder on the New Black Panthers call for Violence?

This is a Hate Crime and not a word coming from this White House or Department of Justice

What is going on with this Administration, the Congressional Black Caucus and the New Black Panthers?

Where is the Media?

Capitol Hill lawmakers are doing more than donning hoodies on the House floor to respond to the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Members of Congress are crafting new legislation, using the outcry over the shooting to push an agenda calling for everything from gun control to restrictions on neighborhood watch groups. 

The legislative steps in the wake of the fatal shooting face an uncertain fate. So far, they come exclusively from Democrats in the Congressional Black Caucus — not power-wielding Republicans who would no doubt be leery of a hasty legislative response, particularly with an investigation still underway.

Now lets take a look at some Shocking Statistics on Black on Black Violent Crime from

Crime ‘Race Wars’ Part 1: The Shocking Data on Black-on-Black Crime

Black-on-black crime is a sensitive subject in this increasingly polarized nation.  While covered in academia and occasionally addressed by talking heads on television, some believe it rarely, if ever, receives the type and depth of attention it deserves. Instead, critics argue that this national tragedy is usually swept under the rug by powerful interest groups and individuals more concerned with elevating their own racially-driven agendas than addressing the real issues at hand. The Trayvon Martin case is only the most recent example of this grim hypocrisy.

Indeed, statistics support a very different narrative than the one usually offered by “race hustlers,” as Pastor C.L. Bryant calls them, who routinely portray an America where members of the black community are selectively targeted and brutalized by white racists.

A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.

To put these number in perspective, recall that over 6,400 U.S. service men and women have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the course of a decade-long war fought in those nations. During the Vietnam War, which lasted nearly 13 years, some 58,000 Americans were killed — nearly 13 percent of whom were African American.

Extrapolating black-on-black crime data reveals that, by comparison, approximately 100,000 African Americans have been killed on our own streets at the hands of other African Americans in roughly the same stretches of time. It is difficult to find anyone who would white-wash these mind-numbing statistics.

Equally as startling, the same study reveals African Americans were victims of an estimated 805,000 nonfatal violent crimes in just one year alone.

While fatalities persist in every major metropolitan area across the nation, there are of course certain cities most impacted by violent crime. Take Cincinnati, for example, where, after the fatal shooting of a young black man by a white police officer in 2001, a wave of riots ensued. Since that time, Cincinnati has set the record for the number of murders carried out each year, with a persistent violent crime rate at a staggering 88 percent.

The now all-too-familiar statistics reveal that black males are killed far more often than any other demographic: “The vast majority of people being murdered are African American in the City of Cincinnati,” said Hamilton County Prosecutor, Joe Deters in an interview.

“The vast majority. Well outside the 40 percent of the population it should be. In 2009, the City of Cincinnati did not have a single white victim of a homicide. (That) tells me that we have a subset in the underclass of Cincinnati which is committing a lot of violent crime and they tend to be black. And the reality is, you almost always commit murder within your racial classifications. So when we’ve got a young black man up in the coroners office, it’s almost always a result of another young black man shooting him.”

That same year, 2009, no white men were killed in Cincinnati, but 44 black males and 11 females were the victims of homicide in the city.

Chicago 

One city that has perennially come under fire for racially charged violence is Chicago. In just the span of three days alone — March 16th-19th of this year — 41 people, mostly African-American, were shot and killed in Chicago. Ten were killed in President Obama’s former neighborhood. Incredibly, these atrocities on our very own streets barely received a turn of the head by activists, nor did they receive any media coverage.

In response to President Obama’s decision to raise the profile of the Trayvon Martin case, T. Willard Fair, president of the Urban League of Greater Miami, recently told The Daily Caller that the “the outrage should be about us killing each other, about black-on-black crime.”

He asked rhetorically, “Wouldn’t you think to have 41 people shot [in Chicago] between Friday morning and Monday morning would be much more newsworthy and deserve much more outrage?”

More than 500 people under the age of 21 were killed in Chicago in 2008. This figure fell only slightly in 2009 and 2010 and, of course, does not represent the many others who have been shot or injured as a result of these attacks. Records reveal that nearly 80 percent of youth homicides occurred in 22 black or Latino communities on Chicago’s South and West sides.

In just the first three months of 2012, 109 people have already been murdered in the city of Chicago. So rampant are the killings in fact, that crime in the President’s adopted hometown was even the focus of an April 5th report featured on The O’Reilly Factor:

In the poignant words of one man interviewed for the segment, “We’ve got to stop referring to people as African-American, Hispanic-American.”

“These are American kids and they are being slaughtered by other American kids.”

An epidemic

According to recent studies, Illinois isn’t the only state in the Midwest to see a marked rise in the number of African-American homicide victims over the course of just the past few years. A study conducted by the Washington D.C. based Violence Policy Center revealed that for the third time in the past five years, Missouri is vying for Cincinnati’s role, leading the nation in black on black violent crime.

Perhaps surprisingly, Wisconsin, too, is ranked as one of the top ten states with the highest percentage of black murder victims. Spanning the rest of the country, the other nine states found to have the highest murder rates among African-Americans include Michigan, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Indiana, Tennessee, Missouri, California and Nevada.

Where is the outrage?

Recently, The Blaze featured a report on Rep. Corrine Brown, who, after professing in an interview to care about “all the children” who fall victim to murder, could not remember the name of a little girl from her district who was murdered and then dumped into a Georgia landfill. While Brown fumbled to find the words, she ultimately could not recall Somer Thompson’s name. She did, however, have much to say about racial profiling and how Trayvon Martin was selectively targeted for his race. For some reason, Brown and others who have followed suit in this case have failed to address or acknowledge the epidemic of murders occurring within their very own communities.

But Brown is not alone. Not by any stretch. Which begs the questions: where is the outrage from prominent members of the African-American community? Where are the words of condemnation and sorrow from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, or Rev. Al Sharpton, over the fact that members of their own communities are summarily executing each other? Critics believe that acknowledging the unfortunate, irrefutable statistical truth negates the left’s narrative about a black community selectively exploited and targeted by white racists. Some might also argue that fanning the flames of racial discontent, especially in an election year, serves a useful and powerful campaign purpose.

Thus far, hundreds of thousands of African Americans have been slaughtered at the hands of each other since the dawn of the Civil Rights movement. Is this the realization of Dr. King’s Community of Man?

The Congressional Black Caucus Media Circus Frenzy Continues……

Lawmakers target gun laws, neighborhood watch in wake of Florida teen shooting

Capitol Hill lawmakers are doing more than donning hoodies on the House floor to respond to the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Members of Congress are crafting new legislation, using the outcry over the shooting to push an agenda calling for everything from gun control to restrictions on neighborhood watch groups. 

The legislative steps in the wake of the fatal shooting face an uncertain fate. So far, they come exclusively from Democrats in the Congressional Black Caucus — not power-wielding Republicans who would no doubt be leery of a hasty legislative response, particularly with an investigation still underway. 

But the sponsors are working on the measures over spring break and plan to push them when lawmakers return later this month. They claim they’re trying to prevent another killing like the one that has touched off a raging national debate about race and the justice system. 

“I am tired of burying young black boys,” Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said on the House floor. Martin lived in Wilson’s district. 

Wilson, who organized a rally in Miami Sunday calling for an arrest in the case, is taking a well-traveled path in response to a high-profile case — she’s forming a commission. 

A spokesman confirmed that Wilson plans to call for the creation of a commission to study racial disparities among black men and boys in America

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, is meanwhile working on a bill that would require neighborhood watch groups — like the one for which shooter George Zimmerman was a volunteer — to register. 

“No one’s registered,” Jackson Lee spokesman Michael McQuerry told FoxNews.com. 

He said staff members were meeting Monday to try to work out some of the details, such as what entities neighborhood watch groups should register with, and whether that should happen at the federal, state or local level. 

Asked whether the proposal would call for neighborhood watch outfits to meet specific standards, McQuerry said it’s still “being worked out.” 

CBC members last week introduced a separate resolution calling on states to repeal so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws. The law, a version of which was enacted in Florida in 2005, allows for individuals to use deadly force — even outside their home — if they feel threatened. 

The proposed resolution on Capitol Hill, in addition to calling for repeal, “condemns” anybody who played a role in proposing the Stand Your Ground laws. The language in the measure makes blunt assertions about shooter Zimmerman, including a statement that says his “unfounded assumptions and racial bias led to the use of deadly force.” 

The case, though, is still being investigated at the local level and by federal Justice officials. 

Tim Lynch, director of the Cato Institute‘s Project on Criminal Justice, questioned whether it was prudent to push for any concrete legislative changes without knowing all the facts. 

“Holding a hearing would be fine,” he noted. But he called the proposals on the Hill “premature.” 

“My impression is that they’re rushing into something,” Lynch said. 

The Media Frenzy surrounding the shooting has turned up several conflicting accounts. Zimmerman, who has gone into hiding and has not been charged, reportedly has claimed he shot in self-defense. Others claim Zimmerman followed the unarmed teen and should be charged. 

As for the renewed debate over Stand Your Ground legislation, backers of the laws have said the legislation doesn’t apply in the case of Zimmerman and Martin. 

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said last month that “stand your ground means stand your ground — it doesn’t mean chase after somebody who’s turned their back.” 

Even Zimmerman’s attorney has said the issue at play is self-defense, not Stand Your Ground. 

Vice President Biden, in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” backed efforts to reconsider the laws. 

“But that’s a decision for the state to make,” he added.

We are Becoming the Laughingstock of the World?

The Lunacy of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democratic National Committee Chairman

Hat tip to The Blaze and Fox News for this story

‘Come on Gretchen!’: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Has Another Contentious Interview on ‘Fox & Friends

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had some heated appearances on Fox News and an interview Wednesday was no exception.

Speaking with “Fox & Friends” host Gretchen Carlson, the Florida congresswoman grew increasingly impatient on the subject of rising gas prices after Carlson played a video of her criticizing then-President George W. Bush over the same issue and asking why President Barack Obama doesn’t deserve similar treatment when prices are even higher.

“You I think back then felt the president could have done something about lowering the gas prices,” Carlson started off. “What do you say now that gas prices are going to reach $5 a gallon under President Obama?”

“What I was referring to in that speech, as I have for many years, is that focusing on fossil fuels and continuing the ‘drill baby drill’ strategy that President Obama rightly referred to the other day in south Florida as a bumper sticker, not an energy policy, is not the way to go,” Wasserman Schultz said. “We are not going to address gas prices over the long-term because there is — there is no president in the short-term that can really change policy and impact gas prices in a significant way.”

She went on to point out that the U.S. has seen “more domestic energy production than we’ve had in eight years” and now needs to make sure to invest in wind, solar and hydroelectric power.

“But a lot of Americans are wondering what’s going to happen now and a lot of those things take time,” Carlson said.

“Affecting gas prices takes time,” Wasserman Schultz replied. “You’re absolutely right.”

“You brought up drilling and I want you to look at this map, because under President Bush versus under President Obama, there is a stark difference as to the amount of drilling that’s going on here domestically,” Carlson said as the map was shown on screen. “This is under President Bush and this is under –”

“I’m sorry, Gretchen,” Wasserman Schultz interjected. “I can’t see the map here.”

“Basically it shows that there was a lot more drilling going on under President Bush than under President Obama,” Carlson said.

“No, right now there is more — ” Wasserman Schultz began.

“Do you believe also — ” Carlson cut in.

“No, no, no, excuse me. Excuse me!” Wasserman Schultz said.

“The policies were enacted by President Bush,” Carlson said.

“Come on Gretchen!” Wasserman Schultz chastised. “If you’re going to make a comment, please let me respond. There’s more domestic energy production now than at any time in the last eight years.”

“I’m running out of time and I really want to get to the question about whether or not a president can actually do something about gas prices,” Carlson said.

With Wasserman Schultz again acknowledging no immediate short-term to alleviate rising prices, she went back to the importance of an “all of the above” strategy, repeating the point about expanded domestic energy production under Obama.

“Right, and I went back to the fact that many people say that was because of the policies enacted under President Bush,” Carlson responded.

“No, no, that would be the policies enacted under President Obama,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Listen Up Infidels and Hear the Truth about America’s Real Enemy: * I S L A M *

We Finally get to Hear the Truth about Islāmic Intentions

Only two blacks were newly elected to congress this cycle, and both are Republican. Col West is from southern Florida, a bastion of the Democratic Party. He won in a walk. This new Congressman was an extremely popular commander in Iraq. He was forced to retire because during an intense combat action a few of his men were captured. At the same time his men had captured one of the guys who were with the Iraqis who captured his men. Knowing that time was crucial and his interrogators were not getting any where with the prisoner COL West took matters into his own hands. He burst into the room and demanded thru an interpreter that the prisoner tell him where his men were being taken. The prisoner refused so COL West tookout his pistol and placed it into the prisoner’s crotch and fired. Then the COL told the prisoner that the next shot would not miss. So the prisoner said he would show where the American service members were being taken. The Americans were rescued. Someone filed a report on incorrect handling of prisoners. COL West was forced to retire. COL West was just elected in November 2010 to Congress from Florida. During the elections he was part of a panel on how to handle or how to relate to Muslims. You will see his answers here.

There you have it.  The Truth is finally spoken by a very Brave American Leader.  This man should be our next President!  Notice again Col. West’s straight forward assessment: “This is not a perversion. They are doing exactly what this book (i.e., the Qur’an) says.”

Only Newt Gingrich Can Go ‘Toe to Toe’ With Obama

Article from the Blaze:

Fresh off his South Carolina primary victory, Newt Gingrich sought to paint himself as the only Republican capable of successfully taking on President Barack Obama in November.

“I think you can draw a very strong case that in the end the dynamics of a Gingrich-Obama fight are much better for Republicans than the dynamics of a Romney-Obama fight,” Gingrich said on CNN’s “State of the Union.“ The former House Speaker has repeatedly cast Mitt Romney as a ”Massachusetts moderate” incapable of defeating Obama.

Gingrich beat the former Massachusetts governor by double-digits in the Palmetto State. Heading into Florida’s Jan. 31 primary, Gingrich said he thinks South Carolina voters picked him out of “a belief that I could debate Obama head to head, that I could convey conservative values.”

“My job in Florida is to convince people that I am the one candidate who can clearly defeat Obama in a series of debates and the one candidate who has big enough solutions that they would really get America back on track,” Gingrich said.

“I think we had better be prepared for a tough campaign, whoever we nominate,” he said. “I can go toe to toe with President Obama on big things.”

Gingrich offered a small amount of praise for Romney over the announcement that he would be releasing his tax returns Tuesday. Romney has faced mounting pressure to do so, particularly from Gingrich.

“I commend him for it,” Gingrich said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “As far as I’m concerned that particular issue is now set to side.”

Mr. President, here is a Preview of what is coming your way

Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney: Who Should it be America?

Newt Gingrich Wins

South Carolina

Newt Gingrich resurrected his campaign Saturday with a convincing victory in the South Carolina Republican presidential primary, leveraging strong debate performances and a handful of wrong turns by Mitt Romney to surge past the former frontrunner and reset the race now headed to Florida. 

After claiming his first primary win, the former House speaker rallied supporters on the road to the next contest on Jan. 31. Gingrich, looking to convey the image of a general election candidate, focused his victory speech almost entirely on President Obama, unloading some of his toughest criticism to date on the White House incumbent. 

“He makes Jimmy Carter look strong,” Gingrich quipped at the close of his speech. 

Gingrich faces organizational challenges, but said he would rely on message to propel him forward. “We don’t have the kind of money at least one of the candidates has, but we do have ideas and we do have people.” 

Gingrich locked up a decisive victory in the state. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Gingrich pulled in 41 percent of the vote, to Romney’s 27 percent. Rick Santorum finished in third with 17 percent, followed by Ron Paul with 13 percent. Herman Cain, who dropped out before the first contest, garnered 1 percent.
