Fox News and Bill O'Reilly reported that Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old unarmed Michael Brown, suffered a fractured eye socket following his confrontation with the teenager. The reporter, Hollie McKay, cited a “source close to the [police] department’s top brass” as providing that information to the network.
However, on CNN Thursday, Don Lemon reported that Wilson did not suffer a fractured or broken eye socket. Noting that specific injury has not been reported by CNN, "but is making its way around other media organization," Lemon cited a "source close to the investigation" who told CNN that Wilson's x-rays came back negative for a fractured eye socket.
"That source says it is not true, at all, he did not have a torn eye socket," Lemon said.
O'Reilly said this Wednesday night:
O'REILLY: "We also hear today that Officer Wilson has an orbital blowout fracture of his eye socket. We are only reporting the alleged injury to demonstrate that there will be much more to come in this case. That is why there is an investigation, and a grand jury, and a trial process. But the race hustlers don't care what really happened, they want Officer Wilson punished. And he should be punished if he murdered Michael Brown."
Notice he said alleged injury, he also said the injury was not confirmed. O'Reilly also says he only reports the facts and does not allow speculation on his show, and he has said this a million times over the last 10 years. But here he is speculating that officer Wilson has a broken eye socket, with no facts to back it up, when the video taken after the shooting does not seem to show any eye injury to officer Wilson, and CNN says they were told there is no broken eye socket injury.
Earth to idiots at Fox, we saw video of Officer Wilson standing, calmly, overlooking the body of Mike Brown. At first, Wilson is standing with a colleague, talking with each other. Later, we see Wilson walking back and forth alongside the body of Mike Brown.
Never a motion in acknowledgement of any "eye injury" he sustained. No medical attention, no EMTs showed to treat the officer, nobody looking at his eye, nothing.
Piaget Crenshaw lives in an apartment overlooking the street in Ferguson where Brown was killed, and she says the police have had her footage since they confiscated her phone following the shooting.
Crenshaw admits that she filmed the scene because, from the beginning, she felt like something was off about the situation. "From it all initially happening, I knew this was not right. I knew the police shouldn't have been chasing this boy and firing at the same time. And the fact he got shot in his face, something clicked in me and I thought someone else should see this so I recorded," she told CNN.
Don't you think if the officer had a broken eye socket (which is very painful) he would be holding his eye, or having someone look at it. Instead he is just standing around casually looking at the body and walking back and forth like he had no injury at all.
That anyone would believe Officer Wilson was suffering from a fractured eye socket all that time defies simple Common Sense. Just look at the video:
O'Reilly ignores all this evidence, to report the officer had a broken eye socket, and he even admitted he could not confirm if it was true, yet he reported it anyway even when there is video showing officer Wilson appears to have no eye injury in the video that was taken right after Brown was shot.
O'Reilly also ignores all the other people who are an eye witess to the shooting, he does not report anything they have said. All he does is slam the protesters, the media, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson. Normally in a situation like this O'Reilly would have the eye witnesses and the person who took the video on his show, but because it involves a white cop shooting a black kid O'Reilly is not doing it.
According to Crenshaw, the person who saw the shooting and filmed the video, it appeared that the officer was trying to pull the teen into his car when Brown got away. The officer fired his weapon, but Brown avoided being struck. It was then that the teen "turned around (with his hands up) and was shot multiple times."
O'Reilly does not report any of this, when it is eye witness evidence and they have video. But he does report an unconfirmed report that the officer had a broken eye socket. No matter what you think happened, this is biased journalism, because it's ignoring actual evidence to report rumors that favor the officer who shot the kid, and only Fox is reporting it, CNN and other media sources are not, because it can not be confirmed.
And let me add this, It has been nearly two weeks since officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown and according to a new report from the Washington Post, prosecutors in the case have still not spoken directly to the potential defendant.
St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch is expected to handle the case, despite calls from him to recuse himself because his own father, a police officer, was murdered by an African-American man.
Ed Magee, a spokesperson for the St. Louis County prosecutor's office told the Washington Post that McCulloch "has been in touch with Wilson's attorney but has not spoken to Wilson himself." So the cop is lawyered up and the prosecutor is not even trying to talk to him to get his statement on record. That is what they normally do when a person shoots someone, so that if later they change their story it can be used to show they lied in court.
But the prosecutor is not doing that, giving the officer and his lawyer weeks to put together a story that will be used in his defense. The prosecutor should have got his statement within a day or two of the shooting before he got a lawyer. And btw, O'Reilly has complained about this is the past in other legal cases, but not in this case. He has no problem with officer Wilson lawyering up to get his story straight, and not giving a statement right after the shooting.
Which is ridiculous, what is he waiting for. The prosecutor should have talked to him before he got a lawyer to get his statement on record. O'Reilly does not report this information either, he just ignores it. Which is the opposite of what he does when a white person is shot and killed by someone.
The Wednesday 8-20-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - August 21, 2014 - 11:40am
The TPM was called: The Truth About Ferguson. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: I came back from vacation because I'm furious about how the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown is being reported and how various people are reacting to it. Mr. Brown is a victim, shot six times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. Some suspect him of murder and a grand jury is hearing the case. Also, Attorney General Holder went to Ferguson today to meet with FBI agents and state authorities, who are conducting separate investigations.And now a reality check, that is the truth about Ferguson as the old, rich, white, Republican Bill O'Reilly sees it. A man who has never been black, never lived in poor black areas, never had to deal with police pulling you over for no reason 10 times a year, no black experience at all, none. What he just said is all right-wing spin, it's ridiculous.
He uses the stats to show the numbers, which is just wrong, it's not as if a company makes 4 bad products out of 100, so that is acceptable. This is unjustified killing by white police against blacks, 1 is too many. How many is ok with O'Reilly, 5? 10? 20? What say you O'Reilly? Your stats argument is insane, we are talking about human life, not a faulty widget, you are a joke, a racist right-wing joke.
Then James Carville and Bob Beckel were on to evaluate the Talking Points Memo.
Beckel said this: "There's not a lot to argue about. The people who have perpetrated most of these crimes are not from Ferguson, and my guess is that many of them don't know Michael Brown's name. But black and white Americans take exactly the opposite view of what happened. Black Americans think the officer probably murdered him, they are used to not being treated fairly and to being harassed by the police."
Carville suggested that black Americans have good reasons to be suspicious of police, saying this: "They live in a world where they're more likely to be stopped by the police and where there is discrimination. People have a right to jump to conclusions, you can't suppress people's First Amendment rights to express their opinions."
And btw, if the cop is innocent why are they keeping him in hiding and not letting him speak to the media, why is he not telling his version of what happened. Could it be they are coaching him what to say to match they story they plan to use at the grand jury or the trial. Why are the cops keeping the full autopsy secret, answer that O'Reilly. If they did nothing wrong why hide all the facts. The cops clearly lied in the other St. Louis shooting, so we know they lie.
O'Reilly mentions none of that, all he does is slam blacks for protesting, and slam the media for doing their job and reporting it. Bill O'Reilly is scum.
Then Charles Krauthammer was on to discuss it, he said this: "Americans do not like the racial hustlers and the exploitation of this situation. Yes, there is a lot of it in the media, but that does not mean that a majority of Americans are not appalled. We do not know what happened that day. We haven't heard from the officers, we haven't seen witnesses on the stand, everybody is jumping to conclusions. That includes Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, who said a 'vigorous prosecution' must be pursued. He is presuming that a crime has been committed."
O'Reilly said this: "The media is terrified to go up against the grievance industry for fear of being branded a 'racist' by Sharpton and the other zealots."
Earth to Bill O'Reilly, they simply want the police to release all the information, tell them what they know. They just want the truth, because as we have seen the police investigate their own people and they rarely ever find they did anything wrong. In Wisconsin a teen was shot to death by the police and they found that in the last 50 years only one cop was ever put on trial for wrongful shootings, so they justify them all.
Then O'Reilly had Patrick Lynch of the NYC Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, who is clearly biased, he spoke about another racial controversy. Last month 43-year-old Eric Garner, a 350-pound asthmatic black man, died during a struggle with police.
Lynch said this: "Al Sharpton is trying to take this tragedy, and raise his profile, as he always does. He's also trying to take due process away from the police officer accused. We're just saying that all decisions should be based on the facts, not the emotion. If you watch some of the networks, you would think Al Sharpton is king of the world, but you have to take a step back and look at his history!"
Which is going to trial, the cops will be charged, and the coroner has ruled it a homicide. So it looks like Sharpton is right, and they wrongly chocked the guy to death. But the cops do not see it that way, they think it's ok to choke people to death just because you are in law enforcement.
And finally, Mike Tobin reported live from Ferguson, he said this: "The streets are pretty empty now, but it's not dark yet. I was talking to young people about the visit of Eric Holder and they either don't know that he's here or don't care. They don't think his showing up here is going to do anything for their cause. The people out here marching believe that Michael Brown was just the lighting rod that got them out here, they believe the mistreatment has been going on for a long time."
More Good Economic News O'Reilly Has Ignored
By: Steve - August 21, 2014 - 11:30am
And of course O'Reilly ignores it because it shows the economy is doing better and it makes President Obama look good. It also shows his economic policies are working, and it proves O'Reilly is lying to you when he says they are not, and that the economy is a disaster because of the liberal policies Obama has put in place, even though the facts show O'Reilly is wrong, he keeps saying it because he is a right-wing propagandist.
US home construction jumps 15.7 percent in July
WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. home construction rebounded in July, rising to the fastest pace in eight months and offering hope that housing has regained momentum after two months of declines.
Construction increased 15.7 percent in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.09 million homes, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. That was the fastest pace since November and followed declines of 4 percent in June and 7.4 percent in May.
Applications for building permits, considered a good sign of future activity, also showed strength in July, advancing 8.1 percent to an annual rate of 1.05 million, after declines of 3.1 percent in June and 5.1 percent in May.
The July rebound reflected strength in single-family home construction, which rose 8.3 percent, and in apartment construction, which was up 33 percent.
O'Reilly Ignoring Other St. Louis Police Shooting Story
By: Steve - August 21, 2014 - 10:30am
And this one is all on video, we can see exactly what happened. Here is what I saw, a young black man on a sidewalk, they say he had shoplifted from a store and the police were called. Someone is filming it, the police pull up and the young black man walks towards them telling them to shoot him with a knife in his hand, so the two white cops shoot him 12 times.
He is dead, and while he is laying dead on the sidewalk one cop puts handcuffs on him while the other cop is still pointing his gun at the dead body. You can even hear the guy who filmed it saying he is dead, and asking why they are handcuffing him and why the other cop is still pointing his gun at the dead man.
In my opinion this goes beyond justified force, they could have used a taser gun, they could have used a billy club to knock him out, and they could have used the training they get to disarm him. And btw, the man had mental problems and he had a steak knife.
I mean c'mon, I could have disarmed the guy and I am not a trained policeman. And the worst part is the police lied, they said he came at them with a knife in a overhand grip and was shot when he got 4 feet from them, which is a lie, both his hands were at his side and they shot him when he got roughly 10 feet from them.
And to the 2 e-mailers that said I was anti-cop, you are wrong. I support the police and I have friends that are policeman, one of them is a veteran police officer that I went to school with. I do not have a problem with the police, I have a problem with white cops shooting black kids, they do not shoot white kids, and you never hear of black cops shooting black kids.
The police are trained to disarm people, and they are trained to use non-lethal force before shooting to kill. They could have also shot him in the leg, and they did not, they shot to kill.
Here is the story from the Huffington Post:
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department released cell phone footage Wednesday of the police shooting of Kajieme Powell, a 25-year-old black man killed on Tuesday in St. Louis, according to St. Louis Public Radio.
A convenience store owner called 911 on Tuesday when he suspected Powell stole drinks and donuts from his shop, according to a recording of the call. Another woman called to report Powell was acting erratically and had a knife in his pocket.
Two officers in a police SUV responded to the calls, the cell phone video shows. When the officers got out of their vehicle, Powell walked in their direction, yelling and telling them to shoot him already.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said Tuesday that both of the officers opened fire on Powell when he came within a three or four feet of them holding a knife "in an overhand grip."
But the newly released cell phone footage undermines the statement, showing Powell approaching the cops, but not coming as close as was reported, with his hands at his side. The officers began shooting within 15 seconds of their arrival, hitting Powell with a barrage of bullets.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department released the video and 911 calls, telling St. Louis Public Radio that it plans to act transparently.
The shooting death occurred less than four miles from where Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer in the suburb of Ferguson on Aug. 9.
The St. Louis Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post.
Warning: The below video includes graphic content.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson spoke to CNN's Don Lemon on Wednesday evening about a newly-released video of officers fatally shooting 25-year-old Kajieme Powell on Tuesday.
After they released the video, police have been criticized for using force so quickly. The video shows police confronting Powell after a 911 caller said he had a knife. Dotson initially said Powell had come within three or four feet of police while holding the knife in an "overhand grip," but his arms are down in the video.
On CNN, Dotson acknowledged that Powell's hands were down at the time of the shooting. But he noted Powell was moving toward the officers, and said he was brandishing a knife close enough for it to be considered a lethal weapon.
"The officers did what I think you or I would do, they protected their life in that situation," Dotson said.
Lemon and fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo asked Dotson whether police could have done something else, such as using a taser, particularly since the man was known to have psychological issues.
"Certainly a taser is an option that's available to the officers, but tasers aren't 100 percent," Dotson said. "So you've got an individual with a knife who's moving towards you, not listening to any verbal commands, continues, says, 'shoot me now, kill me now.' Tasers aren't 100 percent. if that taser misses, that individual continues on and hurts an officer."
Now in my opinion these cops were trigger happy and just waiting to use those guns they target practice with all the time. They did not try any non-lethal force, no tasers, no billy clubs, no nothing. They just pulled up and shot the guy 12 times within a minute of getting there, it was ridiculous. They could have tackled him, one could have grabbed his arm and the other could have clubbed him. Maybe one of the cops gets cut a little, but it does not look to me that they were in fear for their life from a mentally handicapped man with a steak knife.
Instead they pull up and draw their guns ready to shoot, then they shot him 12 times. This is not justified, and if I were these two cops I would be looking for a good lawyer real fast.
More Racist Republican Idiots Speak Out On Ferguson Protesters
By: Steve - August 21, 2014 - 10:00am
And they wonder why people think they are racist, because they keep saying racist things and always opposing anything blacks and mexicans do. Now two more right-wing idiots have made racist statements about the protesters in Ferguson Missouri. This is the Republican racism O'Reilly denies, it's right here, but O'Reilly ignores it all.
Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher posted a racist graphic on his Facebook page Wednesday, it said this:
The best way to end the rioting and looting in Ferguson...
Have a job fair....
They'll scatter like cockroaches when the lights come on!
Earth to Joe the idiot racist, stuff like this is why Republicans are called racists, and it's another reason why 98% of blacks vote Democratic. Keep it up idiot, you will guarantee no Republicans ever get any black votes.
And he is not alone, another Republican Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit also called the protesters in Ferguson roaches. So now it looks like a Republican line, because they said almost the very same thing. Hoft said this on his Twitter feed:
Breaking: Reporters robbed and roughed up by #Ferguson Mob - Protesters scatter like roaches. @gatewaypundit
In case you may not know it, calling black people roaches is racist, maybe they are just too stupid to understand that, but I doubt it. They are most likely proud racists and they do not care if they are seen as racist, in fact, most likely all their followers loved what they said and agree with it. Because there is a culture of racism in the Republican party, no matter how many times O'Reilly denies it.
The Tuesday 8-19-14 O'Reilly/Bolling Factor Review
By: Steve - August 20, 2014 - 11:30am
There was no TPM because the biased right-wing stooge Eric Bolling was hosting again for O'Reilly. Bolling started the show with the latest from Ferguson Missouri.
Fox News correspondent Steve Harrigan reported from Ferguson, saying this: "There were 78 arrests, and some of them came from as far away as California and New York. Police are concerned that rioters are using the demonstrations as a cover to launch attacks against police. But at the same time, there are a lot of demonstrators who are trying to keep the peace and trying to keep people on the sidewalks."
Notice the bias from Harrigan, he said some of them were from California and New York. This is dishonest and misleading, because he did not give the actual numbers. Here they are, of the 78 people arrested, all of them but THREE were from Missouri. That's right, only 3 of them were from New York and California, and Fox News is trying to make it look like it was a lot, as in SOME.
Harrigan also said this: "This movement may go national on Thursday with a 'day of rage,' and it looks like Monday will be the funeral for Michael Brown, which will be a major event as well."
Then Bishop Edwin Bass was on, who has been trying to restore calm in Ferguson. He said this: "We have a number of clergy out in the community, and we are trying to speak to both law enforcement and the protesters. We hope it will bear some fruit, it wouldn't be a good idea to just sit back and let things take care of themselves."
Then Kirsten Powers was on to talk about Attorney General Eric Holder, who is heading to Ferguson Wednesday, where he'll oversee the federal investigation into the death of Michael Brown.
Bolling asked Powers if Holder can be impartial, which is a stupid and biased question, and Powers said this: "Absolutely, I don't know why he wouldn't be. There is a history of racial discrimination in this country and you seem offended when Eric Holder acknowledges that. The Missouri governor asked the Justice Department to get involved and Holder is the head of the Justice Department."
Powers also said this: "People are wondering what happened and why we've been very slow to get the facts on this case. There are so many contradictory stories and that is not helping the situation."
Then Lis Wiehl and Kimberly Guilfoyle were on to talk about the judicial process in Ferguson.
Wiehl said this: "That's why a grand jury is convened. You bring in all these eyewitnesses and the autopsy reports, and the grand jury looks at whether there is probable cause to hand down an indictment. They will try to determine whether the officer used 'excessive force' when he shot Michael Brown."
Guilfoyle said this: "Was the officer fearing bodily injury or death, was his life in danger, did he think this was an individual who was capable of committing more violence? That is very important because all of this happened in a matter of seconds and the officer has a right to defend himself."
Then Howard Kurtz and Lauren Ashburn were on to talk about the media coverage of Ferguson, who are also biased, so they are not exactly impartial judges.
Kurtz said this: "This media invasion in Ferguson, is inflaming the situation because all the agitators want the exposure. And some of the correspondents are making a name for themselves, they're openly siding with the protesters. It's become a nightly reality show. You have MSNBC acting as the Michael Brown defense network, and then you have conservatives who are defending the police officer."
Ashburn disagreed and applauded the overall reporting, saying this: "Are they supposed to not do their jobs? Reporters are sent there to cover both sides of the story, even at the risk of their lives. Yes, there are some cable pontificators who are pitting both sides against the other, but there are journalists on the streets who are doing a good job."
What is really funny is people at Fox slamming journalists for bias and bad reporting, when they are the most biased and bad journalists in the media, it's like a bank robber telling other people not to rob banks.
Most of the media is doing their job in Ferguson, it's called journalism, the stooges at Fox just defend the cops because they are mostly white. That's not journalism, it's partisan bias. Fox defends the cops, even though they are most likely in the wrong, simply because they are white and the protesters are black. When the protesters are white Fox is on their side and they are great Americans, but when they are black Fox is against them and they are bad Americans.
Then another Fox stooge Mike Tobin was on with the very latest from Ferguson.
Tobin said this: "The authorities have put up a big chain link fence around the QuikTrip, which will prevent people from congregating. That seems to be the strategy - don't let people congregate and you won't have the trouble boiling up."
Which is a violation of their constitutional right to peaceable assembly, but of course Fox does not care because they are mostly black protesters.
Tobin also commented on the news that a St. Louis cop shot and killed another black man on Tuesday, saying this: "A lot of people are accepting the fact that the suspect did go at the officers with a knife, but they keep saying there were non-lethal options like tear gas or a shot in the leg. This goes back to the pre-conceived conclusion that the officers are out to harm the people."
Bingo, why shot them in the head when a leg shot would stop them. Not to mention tear gas or other non-lethal options. It's clear that there is a bias and a hatred towards blacks from white cops, that is why they keep shooting and killing them, while not shooting and killing white kids. But O'Reilly and Fox deny that, because conservatives defend the police no matter what when it involves black people, because they are racists, plain and simple.
State GOP Leader Calls Ferguson Voting Booth Disgusting
By: Steve - August 20, 2014 - 10:30am
Tuesday, the Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party, Matt Wills, spoke with Breitbart regarding reports that voter registration booths had been set up in Ferguson. He was talking about civil rights activists, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who have used the protests in Ferguson over the death of Mike Brown to convince local residents to register to vote.
Which did not sit well with Wills and the state's GOP. When contacted by Breitbart to give an opinion on this, Wills said the following:
WILLS: "If that's not fanning the political flames, I don't know what is. I think it's not only disgusting but completely inappropriate."Which is just ridiculous, and a totally racist statement. Because what they are doing is getting people registered to vote, because the Mayor is white and ran unopposed. It's ridiculous to have a white mayor in a city that is 70% black, especially one who does not care about blacks and was on tv lying that everyone supports him, which is just laughable.
One of the main complaints from black Ferguson residents in the aftermath of Brown's shooting is that they feel shutout of the political process and major decisions affecting them. Despite African-Americans making up 70% of the town's population, the mayor is white, six out of seven members of the school board are white (the other one is Hispanic) and nearly every other elected official in the town is white.
The school system's superintendent, a black man, was suspended without explanation by the school board. He later resigned. The police department has only 3 black officers out of a force of 53.
Sharpton told the black people of Ferguson that if they want to affect change, they need to get to the polls and vote. He loudly condemned the 12 percent voter turnout by black residents during his speech at a rally Sunday. If they want more African-Americans in positions of political power they need to register to vote and get involved. Sharpton put his money where his mouth is and, along with others, set up the voter registration booths in and around the major protest areas.
Basically, if young black people are going to come out and demonstrate, then they should also be given the tools to affect real change.
However, Wills, obviously speaking on behalf of many Republicans, not only in Missouri but this country, feel that this is awful and disgusting. I am shocked I didn't see him quoted as calling Jackson and Sharpton race hustlers, as O'Reilly does, which is also racist. In his mind, civil rights activists shouldn't use an event that is largely happening due to the long-standing racial and political issues affecting a specific area to raise awareness with the people who are most affected.
They need to be solemn and respectful and not try to incite young black people to take any action towards their future. In other words, do what white Republicans want them to do, nothing.
The racist GOP leader Wills also does not think the Mike Brown tragedy has anything to do with race, and he wishes people would stop bringing it up, saying this:
WILLS: "This is not just a tragedy for the African American community this is a tragedy for the Missouri community as well as the community of what we call America. Injecting race into this conversation and into this tragedy, not only is not helpful, but it doesn't help a continued conversation of justice and peace."Which is also laughable, because it is all about race, it's about a white cop shooting and killing an unarmed black kid in a mostly black city with mostly white cops. This Wills is a joke and he sounds just like O'Reilly, they are both clueless racist Republicans and neither one of them have any business talking about black issues or problems.
Especially O'Reilly, who looks more and more like a racist right-wing fool every time he talks about blacks and their issues. Here is a tip for Wills and O'Reilly, stop saying racist things, then people will stop calling you a racist.
Real Journalsim From Ferguson: Something O'Reilly Knows Nothing About
By: Steve - August 20, 2014 - 10:00am
Here is what you call real journalism, a report from a journalist in Ferguson Missouri who is there to report the actual facts, not the spin you get from right-wing talking heads on vacation like Bill O'Reilly.
Just after 10 p.m. local time in Ferguson, Missouri Monday night, CNN's Jake Tapper asked his cameraman to take a step back and zoom out so he could highlight what he clearly thought was the absurdity of the situation on the ground.
With the National Guard and police sent in to disperse what appeared to be almost entirely peaceful protesters, an incensed Tapper told viewers what was really going on.
TAPPER: I want to show you this, okay? To give you an idea of what's going on. The protesters have moved all the way down there... they're all the way down there. Nobody is threatening anything. Nobody is doing anything.
None of the stores here that I can see are being looted. There is no violence.
Now I want you to look at what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri, in downtown America, okay? These are armed police, with -- not machine guns -- semi-automatic rifles, with batons, with shields, many of them dressed for combat. Now why they're doing this? I don't know.
Because there is no threat going on here. None that merits this. There is none, okay?
Absolutely there have been looters, absolutely over the last nine days there’s been violence, but there is nothing going on on this street right now that merits this scene out of Bagram. Nothing.
So if people wonder why the people of Ferguson, Missouri are so upset, this is part of the reason. What is this? This doesn't make any sense.
Earth to Bill O'Reilly, until you put your feet on the ground in Ferguson and do some real journalism, shut up. Nobody cares what you have to say about it from your vacation, because you are a liar, a biased right-wing liar.
NYPD Ray Kelly Slams Ferguson Police: O'Reilly Silent
By: Steve - August 19, 2014 - 11:50am
Here is even more evidence Bill O'Reilly is ignoring a lot of the story about the Ferguson protests. The NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly slammed the Ferguson police for racism, and for their lack of training. And notice that O'Reilly never says one word about the people in Ferguson being 70% black, with 53 cops, only 3 are black. O'Reilly ignores all that, because he is a biased and racist hack.
The guy who basically created the stop-and-frisk policy calls out the Ferguson Police Department as a racist organization, as well as incompetent and unprofessional, that is a big deal.
It is "mind-boggling" that the Ferguson Police Department is overwhelmingly white, former NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly told Bloomberg News, and called for the force to increase its diversity. (The department has 53 officers, with only 3 of them African-American. Ferguson is 70% African-American.)
Other things that are mind-boggling to Kelly, who served nearly 14 years as New York City's police commissioner: that the Ferguson police are not even "trained in policing tactics," or tactics that even the military would use: "Military don't do that; that's not in their core mission."
He also criticized Ferguson police chief Tom Jackson for profoundly messing up the entire situation by not immediately releasing the name of the cop who killed Michael Brown, and dragging the fact-finding process out for days.
"You tell them what you know and tell them what you don't know, rather than dribbling it out," he said, adding that the more information a community had about a controversial event, the further it would go towards "quelling or lessening disturbances."
Sadly, we can't go back in time and turn the Ferguson Police Department into a competent organization that can effectively police a small town: "The toothpaste is out of the tube here," Kelly reiterated. "There"s lots of things that should have been done differently, and you have to live with them."
There you have it folks, Ray Kelly is saying the Ferguson Police Department is not a competent organization that can effectively police a small town. But you never hear any of this from O'Reilly, all he does is slam the protesters, the journalists reporting on it, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson.
And btw Kelly's tenure as Police Commissioner under Mayor Michael Bloomberg saw the crime rate in New York City drop to a 50-year low, but also garnered criticism for what many saw as race-driven tactics to achieve that end. And even he is saying they are racist, and that they do not know what they are doing.
But if you watch the Factor for your news you do not know any of this, because O'Reilly does not report any of it.
Dish TV Has One Big Problem
By: Steve - August 19, 2014 - 11:30am
I know this is off topic for my blog but I wanted to report this for the people who might be thinking about getting Dish tv.
Every time it rains you lose your signal, a big pop up windown comes on the tv screen that says partial signal loss, and the picture and sound are gone, or it will say complete signal loss and the picture and sound are gone.
This can last anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes, or longer, depending on how long the rain storm lasts. When I was living with my Father and we had comcast, this never happened, the cable never went out.
I am sitting here now and it is raining, and of course the signal for Dish tv is out. And they sure do not tell you any of this in the million commercials a day they run on every channel.
And let me tell you something else, we called to get internet added to the Dish package my landlord already has and they wanted $50.00 a month, with a 2 year contract, which was so ridiculous we just hung up on them. I called comcast and got internet for $19.99 a month for the first 6 months, that goes up to $34.95 a month after 6 months. And no contract at all, none, you can cancel it at any time.
They do not tell you any of this in their commercials, but they do offer you $50.00 if you refer someone to Dish, which I would never do, even though I need the money, because it is not good, for the above reasons.
The channel selection is good for the price, but you lose your signal every time it rains and their internet deal is way overpriced and just ridiculous. If I had a choice, I would go with comcast over Dish 100% of the time.
The Monday 8-18-14 O'Reilly/Bolling Factor Review
By: Steve - August 19, 2014 - 11:00am
Their was no TPM because the far-right Eric Bolling filled in for O'Reilly, proving once again that O'Reilly is a biased Republican for letting Bolling host his show, and not an Independent, or ever a Democrat.
Bolling started Monday's show with the latest news from Ferguson, Missouri, where Governor Jay Nixon has called in the National Guard to deal with rioting and looting. Bill O'Reilly called in to talk about the deteriorating situation.
O'Reilly said this: "The facts tell the story. According to stats from the FBI, there were 12-million arrests in the United States in 2012 and the police were involved in about 420 deaths. So this is an infinitesimal situation and those people who say the police are hunting down young black men are lying and grossly insulting law enforcement across the country. And in Ferguson, as far as we can tell, there has never been a police shooting!"
Which is total right-wing spin from O'Reilly, because no matter what the stats are he never mentions that these white cops are only shooting unarmed black kids, they never shoot unarmed white kids, O'Reilly ignores that.
O'Reilly also said this: "Everyone should know that most television journalists are terrified of being labeled 'racist,' so they will never challenge any kind of smear. For example, MSNBC put on a woman who claimed that Michael Brown was shot in the back. That was a lie but it was not challenged by MSNBC. I am very upset that Michael Brown's family and friends have to go through this, but when people are trying to exploit a case you have to put the facts out. And the facts are that this young man did something wrong and was walking down the middle of the street and a confrontation happened. We don't know why, we don't know how, but the justice system has to play out. Let's have a transparent investigation."
And as usual O'Reilly lied about MSNBC, they did report the facts, that he was not shot in the back. O'Reilly has his facts, that are not facts, just his opinion, all the facts are not in. But we do know an unarmed black kid was shot and killed by a white cop, and that they never shoot and kill unarmed white kids.
Then Juan Williams was on to talk about how black and white Americans are deeply divided over Michael Brown's death and the ensuing protests. Eric asked Fox News analyst Juan Williams about the involvement of Al Sharpton and the New Black Panther Party.
Williams said this: "The New Black Panthers are a bunch of fools, but they're a small element that doesn't deserve our attention. They say crazy things, but it plays to fears. There are fears in the black community because a young boy was shot six times, which seems excessive, and there are fears in the white community of crime that comes disproportionately from young black males."
Williams also suggested that officer Darren Wilson probably overreacted, saying this: "The local police have not come forward with their version of events. Even if this was a large kid running at you, why do you have to shoot him six times?"
Then Jonathan Turley was on to talk about the New York Times reporter James Risen who has labeled President Obama "the greatest enemy of press freedom in a generation."
Turley said this: "I voted for President Obama the first time around, and he certainly didn't create this problem of the rising 'uber-presidency.' But under President Obama it has reached a critical tipping point. He has essentially become a government unto himself when he asserts these unilateral actions. I agree with James Risen's assessment that President Obama has launched a comprehensive attack on press freedom. It's not just the surveillance of reporters, but it's his use of the Espionage Act against whistleblowers and reporters. He is using executive power to an extent that is almost Nixonian."
Then Republican Congressman Paul Ryan was on to talk about the challenges facing America.
Ryan said this: "What's going on in Ferguson shows the underpinnings of racial grievances that are real and true. Of all the things we need to do, we should try to heal our country and come together. Those of us who are leaders should be offering solutions, and that's what I'm trying to do. The American ideal is that the condition of your birth doesn't determine the outcome of your life, you can make it in this country. But a lot of people don't see that any more, and we need to reignite that. This book is about how to reclaim this great country that is on the wrong track right now."
Except nobody likes his solutions, his budget plan was a joke and barely passed the House along party lines, 10 Republicans even voted against it. He was also a disaster as a Vice President with Mitt Romney. Saturday Night Live even did comedy skits about him. His budgets are laughable and will never pass the Senate, let alone get approved by President Obama. His solutions are ridiculous and will never happen.
Then Anti-war activist Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink, was on to talk about ISIS and what the USA can do to deter that band of terrorists.
Benjamin said this: "U.S. involvement is counter-productive, because it's emboldening ISIS and getting new recruits from around the world. It's telling the Sunnis that the U.S. is supporting the very repressive Shi'a government in Baghdad. We need to make sure that there's a real change in the government in Baghdad so that the political grievances of the Sunni population are heard. We invested $20-billion in Iraqi security forces and they are unable to fight because they aren't invested in a clean and democratic government."
And finally, the Republican Mike Tobin from Fox was on with a live update from Ferguson.
Tobin said this: "The number of people has been thinner today, but as the sun is going down the numbers are picking up. Tonight there will be more police officers than in previous nights when they tried to pull back the officers so there would be less friction. That didn't work, we had violent clashes every night. So now they're allowing the demonstrators to come out and march, but the catch is that they have to keep marching. They aren't allowing people or groups to loiter."
Watch Out: Republicans Are Creating Fake News Websites
By: Steve - August 19, 2014 - 10:00am
And of course O'Reilly does not say a word about any of it, because he is a Republican and he supports them doing the fake news websites to counter what he calls liberal propaganda.
Recently, Jason Easley discussed the dangers of conflating trustworthy media with media that tells us what we want to hear. He says something important about the danger of falling into the same trap that people who rely on Fox or Rush Limbaugh for their news and ideas.
Aside from understanding that propaganda comes from all areas of the political spectrum, it's as important to understand the tactics involved. The more obvious tactics include editing comments and images to distort their original content and context. Another obvious trick, favored by the Koch brothers, is buying deceptive ads where actors are presented as victims of the Affordable Care Act.
Since it is election season and the GOP's attempt at re-branding was a flop, they are focusing on what they do best -- spreading lies and misinformation.
The NRCC has been busy creating over 20 fake news websites. They look like they could be new sites, but the content reads like something you'd see in a political ad or on Fox (which in many ways is one long political ad).
All the NRCC websites come from the same domain: www.electionupdate2014.com. The sites are called (name of City) Update. They contain "analysis" of a Democratic opponent's record that reads like a partisan hatchet job.
One example is a site called "San Antonio Update."
The site has the appearance of authenticity at least until you go to the bottom of the page where in very small letters, the NRCC comes clean, acknowledging that it paid for the site:
Obviously, the NRCC is hoping people won't read the full content, let alone they see the disclaimer at the bottom of the page.
Republicans may be thinking they have a first amendment right to lie to voters. However, in his own advertising one Democrat points to the obvious shortcoming of fake news sites, saying this:
Aside from being unethical, it's a dirty trick that is also pretty insulting. The implication here is that our opponent and his friends think Texans are too dumb to know the difference between a real news website and their fake one.
The fact is political ads are part of the landscape, but most of us recognize that advertising isn't news. Advertising is intended to sell a product, a service or in the political context a candidate, a political party or a position on a political issue. That means in the best of circumstances, political ads will emphasize the positive in a chosen political candidate and the negative in an opponent.
While there are rules that preclude deception in most forms of advertising, the same is not true of political advertising. As the Supreme Court ruled, political speech that includes outright lies is protected speech under the First Amendment.
News, at least as most of us understand it, is supposed to be factual and it is supposed to expose lies, misinformation and distortions. That's what makes this use of fake news sites so insidious. And O'Reilly, who claims to oppose dishonest tactics by political parties and the media says nothing, he is silent, because the Republican party is doing it.
Lawmakers Try To End Transfer Of Military Equipment To Police
By: Steve - August 18, 2014 - 11:00am
WASHINGTON, Aug 15 (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers alarmed by the aggressive police response to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, are pushing for Congress to limit the Pentagon's ability to provide civilian police departments with military equipment such as armored vehicles designed for the battlefield.
Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson wrote colleagues in the House of Representatives this week seeking support for legislation to curtail a program that passes surplus equipment from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to municipal U.S. police forces, free of charge.
Because of the program "our local police are quickly beginning to resemble paramilitary forces," Johnson said.
Three other Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee wrote to Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Republican, to ask for a committee hearing on "recent incidents of local law enforcement using excessive force." They pointed to events in Ferguson, where demonstrators have protested the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by police, and elsewhere.
The "brutal force" used against the Ferguson demonstrators, including the use of riot gear, armored vehicles, and tear gas and rubber bullets, raised concerns that "local law enforcement is out of control," the lawmakers said.
The letter was written by Representatives John Conyers, Steve Cohen and Bobby Scott.
Days of protests over Brown's death have cast a spotlight on racial tensions in greater St. Louis, where civil rights groups have complained in the past of racial profiling by police.
A House Judiciary Committee spokeswoman on Friday stopped short of promising a hearing on the Ferguson events, but said Goodlatte supported efforts to conduct a thorough investigation into the events surrounding Brown's death.
"The committee will be monitoring the results of the investigation and surrounding events," the spokeswoman said.
In the Senate, Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, a Democrat, expressed shock on Friday at the "military-like" police response in Ferguson. "Equipping police officers with the tools of war does nothing to repair a torn community," he said.
A Johnson spokesman said on Friday he would introduce his bill when Congress returns to work in September. It would limit the type of equipment that the Pentagon can transfer to police.
Johnson's letter said numerous cities and towns around the country had acquired free MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) armored personnel vehicles from war zones in recent months.
"Unprecedented amounts of military equipment" were given away not only to police in cities, but on college campuses, Johnson wrote. "Ohio State University recently acquired an MRAP. Apparently college kids are getting too rowdy."
The issue was already percolating in Congress before the Ferguson events. In June, the majority Republican House of Representatives voted 355-62 against a proposal to block funding for the military equipment transfers to police.
