If the country, and in particular the substandard and highly volatile leadership of this country had the presence of mind that we find in the Michael Brown family, America would not have gone to bed with the threat of racially motivated nationwide violence. The Brown family was understandably upset by the Grand Jury’s verdict. However, at the same time, Michael Brown’s father made some stunningly profound and wise comments as he called for calm. He said he wanted his son’s death to stand for positive change, not to be the impetus of rioting and senseless violence. In the midst of all the chaos, is it hard to not only grieve for the loss of the Brown family, but to admire their maturity and character. If only Mr. Brown could trade places with the current POTUS.


Michael Brown was shot and killed by Officer Wilson on August 9, 2014. The appropriateness of the officer’s actions were reviewed by a Grand Jury. The jury members were not sequestered. Therefore, they read the same newspapers and watched the same TV news reports as the rest of the country. The Grand Jury was fully cognizant of the enormous implications of the Grand Jury’s actions. The pressure was enormous. These Grand Jury members knew that their actions would be scrutinized in the months ahead for objectivity and signs of a cover-up.  There was no cover-up. There was only justice, arrived at under a very watchful eye of the public that will surely review every nuance of the decision. At the end of the day, the decision to not indict had nothing to do with the violence we see across America today. The backlash was predetermined by an administration in need of a distraction from its criminal actions.

The Grand Jury’s Options and Consequences

Action                                                              Result         

The Grand Jury could indict Officer Wilson            Riots, Looting, Violence

    The Grand Jury could decide to not indict           Riots, Looting, Violence


Regardless of the verdict, there was going to be rioting, looting and violence. Why? Because of people like Eric Holder, Al

Sharpton and President Obama. Each of the three leaders fanned the flames of hatred and racism. I expected this kind of behavior from someone like Al Sharpton who sees racism in every social situation in America. Racism gives Sharpton his purpose for living. He is like an oncologist that would hate to see a cure for cancer. Without racism, Sharpton would have to find a real job!



This morning on FOX News, the local talk show media in St. Louis is reporting that the Grand Jury’s verdict was leaked to the Washington Post. This forced the hand of St. Louis officials in announcing the verdict prematurely, before the police could be fully deployed. Clearly, as the nation watched the unfolding of the violence, following the verdict, the police and the national guard were not fully deployed. Time and time again, the St. Louis media is accusing Holder and the Justice Department of being the source of the leak. Since St. Louis officials and the Justice Department were conducting a joint investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown, who else could have leaked the decision? The early hours of the unchecked rioting and looting and violence can assuredly be laid at the feet of Eric Holder and the Justice Department.

As far as fanning the flames of racially motivated violence, Holder is in good company. Nowhere, is the more evidence of race-baiting than we are seeing out of the White House. Last night, following the release of the verdict, Obama addressed the nation. His early comments were what we should expect of the President.  He called for peaceful protest, but urged calm in the aftermath of verdict. If  Obama would have shut his mouth at this point, his leadership, in this matter, would have been seen as responsible and  that he was making a good faith effort to guide the nation through this crisis without any undue violence. However, and true to form of this former community activist/antagonist, Obama could not leave well enough alone as his remarks turned inflammatory as he said the following:

 “…there are real “problems” and a “deep distrust” that exists “between law enforcement and people of color” around the country. “We need to recognize that the situation in Ferguson speaks to the broader challenges that we face across the nation…”

Obama’s irresponsible and  inflammatory comments were not what the nation needed to hear at this time of extreme emotionality. In 30 seconds, Obama fanned the flames of racial discord. In these 30 seconds, Obama reverted back to his all-to-familiar role as the community activist in Chicago as he displayed a deep mistrust for law enforcement officers across the country. No, I am not saying that race relations between various communities and the police are not strained and do not need attention. They are in some cases, and these concerns should be addressed. However, at this time of unprecedented emotional volatility, this was not the time make such a set of inflammatory statements. For a moment last night, I could not tell if I was listening to a Presidential address to the nation or a race-baiting tirade from Al Sharpton.

President Obama

Mr. President, your job last night was to call for calm and EVERY word coming out of mouth should have served that purpose. You failed in your duty as the Chief Executive.  Mr. President, what would you say to the owners of the dozen Ferguson businesses that were burned down last night? Many of these businesses were black-owned businesses! Did they deserve this?  If I were one of these business owners, I would hold you, Mr. President, partially responsible for the devastating losses suffered last night. Mr. President, since you have taken office, you have been a one-man wrecking crew for the people of the United States, regardless of their race. Here are more examples of the failure of your leadership.
Aren’t we, as Americans, embarrassed by this conduct?



No More Than a Useful Pawn

Seventy six brave police officers lost their lives in the line of duty last year in service to their communities. Did Obama and Holder call even one of these  fallen officers family members?  Did they attend even one of their funerals? When Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry, was murdered by a gun supplied to the Mexican drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious, did Obama and Holder reach out to the Terry family, offer words of condolences or attend his funeral? Why is Michael Brown so important to this administration? This administration is using Michael Brown as a political tool of distraction. Obama and Holder do not truly care for Michael and his family.


Why did Obama and Holder fan the flames of overt racism and engage in a display of mistrust for the legal system in America?  Simple, Obama and Holder need distractions that will take the nation’s eyes away from Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS harassment scandal, Tea Party harassment, et al. Divide and conquer along racial lines is Obama’s best friend. Right now, he’s got the nation focused on something other than his own scandals. I look for more racially dividing speeches from the White House in the upcoming days.




The aftermath and the effect of the verdict can be felt across the country as we are now seeing widespread civil unrest.  Again, I lay much of this at the feet of Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and President Obama. In all likelihood, this is just the beginning.

To the Michael Brown family, I pray that God comforts you in your time of loss and grieving. There will come a time when the cameras and media spotlight disappear and Michael’s family will be left to deal with this horrible tragedy on their own.  I pray that God comforts the family through the difficult days ahead. I also pray for the soul of Michael. I further pray that America can quickly move beyond the verdict and some good can come from this event. Finally, I pray that all Americans realize that the fundamental problems in this country are not caused by the fact that we have people with different skin colors living in American. Rather, our problems in this country emanate from the bankers who have hijacked our government and they do not have our best interest at heart as evidenced by the repeated transgressions of Holder and Obama.

    Good Point!
    I am sick and tired of the blacks SLAVERY mentality. Get over it. I was Born in Chicago and how many times blacks nearly jumped me or tried to hit me with a pipe and I was doing part time work at the Main post Office in downtown, Chicago. I was simply Walking in a black community to see my ex dog I sold to a black Family. They inivted me over. As for the black worker at the post Office, I was a whitey!
    I am so sick of These blacks. Always complain and at the lowest Levels of the social pecking order. They are very stupid and racist.I never discriminated against any race in my life. I have invited blacks to my home for dinner, which they never returned the favor. Some of them were married to White ladies and refused to come over.
    America made a big mistake electing TWICE a communist Muslim black from Africa. What is wrong with stupid Americans!
    No, White People are afraid to say anything anymore, for fear of being called a racist. So be it.

    perfectly said Dave. i try to explain this to those around me whenever the opportunity presents itself. but im resented for understanding the deeper underlying issues, motives, and agendas. my family, friends and coworkers are in loser denial and it kills me knowing their fate. for it is not all gum balls and rainbows as they tell themselves and others. cognitive dissonance is our greatest obstacle.

    Good perspective Dave,

    I would like to say however that Michael Brown’s parents seem unable to view the event objectively as they wanted the police officer to be indicted. If I learned that my son was beating the bat snot out out of a police officer and reaching for his weapon inside of his cruiser, I would expect to be attending my son’s funeral.
    I am compelled to consider the possibility that the businesses that were burned and looted were mostly Caucasian or non black. It would not surprise me if we see a community investment program and these businesses end up all black owned. This would be consistent with what occurred to GM dealerships owned by republican non black people in 2009. Many of the dealerships were then reopened by the preferred persuasion. Are we seeing Black Liberation Theology and redistribution of wealth on display ?

    Admittedly distant dots to be connecting but nothing surprises me out of these STREET THUGS.

    Well said Mr. Bob! Furthermore, if Mr. Brown wants better relations with the police departments then he sould raise children that dont’t rob convenience stores and intimidate the owners. Brown Jr. got just what he deserved although it was late in coming. Mr. Brown Sr. can say what he wants but he was without a doubt aware of his son’s activities around town and probably himself enjoyed the “fruits of loots” that his son brought home. Tax paying, law abiding citizens, for the most part, don’t have problems with the police. If Mr. Brown Sr. wants to stop mourning then next time raise law abiding children instead of thugs. People look at the problem, a dead teenager in the street, instead of the source of the problem which was a monster size thug stealing cigars. If the cigars had been left in the box or paid for at the counter then none of this would have ever happened. Thanks and God bless.

    You know better than most that the president is acting on behalf of the New World Order Globalist Banking cartel to weaken and destroy our nation by whatever means so that they can usher in their One World Government, One World Monetary System, One World Military, One World Religion and so on. We are well along on the road to that UN Agenda 21 program. We don’t have politicians any more. We have New World Order traitors bought and paid for by the these Satan worshiping Illuminati bankers. The results of their plans are all around us. Even the most unaware and uninformed among us can see it, if they care to take a minute look at the evidence.

    I’m ambivalent toward blacks. When I think of blacks as a group, I’m hostile. I think of them as destroyers, both of themselves and of our nation. But on the other hand, I feel very differently toward blacks I actually know. They are real human beings just like the rest of us, and some of them are extremely likeable. Some of them I respect greatly for their character, for their trust in God, for their boldness in stating their stand for Jesus. Some I greatly respect for their competence at their jobs. I really don’t know what to think about the ridiculously high levels of illegitimacy in the black community (I’ve heard as high as 80%!). I really don’t know what to think about their lack of academic achievement. I really don’t know what to think about their astonishing crime rates. Maybe the blacks I know are exceptional. But I do know that the Lord would have me treat them as I would my own relatives. And the ones who know Him really are! The Bible has the answer (as usual).

  13. 33rd P November 25, 2014 at 10:43 am

    So in your face obvious race baiting to cover admin criminal behavior.
    Yes, the deconstructionism would have the old dependable racial woe to me ignorance continue it’s decaying march. Can’t see the real fight(forest) for the trees. Well, They will achieve the destruction of America but the unforeseen consequences are many.
    This is the staged rebellion of ignorant more free stuff people….embarrassing! When the real Euro American populace has had enough, all the king’s….will not put Humpty back together again.

    They are Here.!!..Obama’s Goal. …”Sharia”, or Islamic law .. ……….Racism , a pathway to “Sharia”, ………

    What is Sharia?
    Also meaning “path” in Arabic,

    Muslim scholars say that secular government is the best way to observe sharia. “Enforcing a [sharia] through coercive power of the state negates its religious nature..

    ……Racism is the belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and abilities resulting in the inherent superiority, or inferiority of a particular racial group. Xenophobia is generally defined as the fear of anything considered strange or foreign. Discrimination involves treating or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of, or against, a group of people based on race, class or creed……….

    The Muslims are using the rioters, and of course race, as an instrument for jihad, and Obama is as well playing a major role in this. The entire movement is a conspiracy to weaken the American police force to further enable jihad in America…. Walid Shoebat.

    This agenda of fomenting race war between blacks and whites has become evident in feature films and in events such as the Travyon Martin case. Clearly, globalist proxies are brazenly escalating a tragedy for their own gain. Only plutocrats will benefit once the dust has cleared.

    Obama now has a track record as a politician who misleads people. His facade of concern will not seem convincing to many. If grieving parents can have the grace and presence of mind to call for calm, surely legitimate protesters can find a respectful way to show their concerns. There are countless ways that people of conscience can respond to support healing and justice in this tragedy.

  19. Dave November 26, 2014 at 6:20 pm


    Why would you pray for the soul of Michael Brown?

    “It is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Heb. 9:27) Eternal destiny is sealed at death. Unbelievers go to hell to await the Great White Throne judgment and ultimately the lake of fire, while believers are “absent from the body, and present with the Lord.” (2 Cor. 5:8) There is no purgatory or other transitional state. Prayer cannot and will not alter our status after death. As a believer you should know these things.
