Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, told Eyeblast.tv that if Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech were read to the crowd at the ‘Restoring Honor’ rally, no one would applaud. That’s a round-about way of him calling the crowd racist.


So, Glenn Beck’s rally audience is racist. Wow, did Ben Jealous think that up all by himself?

Restoring Honor Rally- Glenn Beck Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.

Aug 302010
 

It may look like any other afternoon along this busy shopping strip outside El Paso, Texas, with people walking in and out of stores and restaurants and traffic moving at a steady clip. But inside a particular establishment, one of our sources is waiting to buy nearly $20,000 worth of cocaine from a local gang member.

The operation represents one of the many ways we are fighting the drug trade along the Southwest border. From small street-level drug buys to major cases targeting the highest levels of cartel and gang leadership, our agents and law enforcement partners attack the problem from every angle to gain intelligence and to disrupt and dismantle trafficking organizations.

On this day, agents from our criminal enterprise/gang squad are working with local and state officers to build a case against the gang. Members of the team—all in plain clothes and driving unmarked vehicles—are inconspicuously and strategically parked near the site of the establishment. The source inside is wearing a wire, and his conversations can be heard on car-to-car radios. If anything goes wrong, the source will say a code word and the team will quickly be inside.

At a final briefing before the operation began, the team leader—one of our veteran agents—spoke to the group in a parking lot behind a nearby municipal building. He went over the plan again in detail, stressing the danger involved and the need for extreme caution to make sure everyone stayed safe. Then, like a basketball coach before a game, he gathered the team in a circle and read aloud the Bureau’s policy on the use of deadly force.

An hour later, the source was inside, but the target wasn’t—he called to say he would be late. While they waited in their car and listened to the radio chatter, two of our agents on the operation—we’ll call them Smith and Johns—explained the economics of the drug trade in El Paso and across the border in Juarez.

“Where you have gangs,” Smith said, “you have drugs. And in El Paso, all the drugs are coming from across the border.” A kilo of cocaine in El Paso costs about $20,000, but can be sold in Chicago, Atlanta, New York, or Miami for more than $30,000. There is a lot of money to be made.

Finally, the target arrived, but without any drugs and only vague promises to produce them that day. The team leader sent a text message to the source to leave, and then canceled the operation. “We’ll try again tomorrow,” he said.

False starts and dead ends are typical in such drug cases, Agents Smith and Johns said later. But the work is important. Even though small drug buys won’t break the backs of the cartels, Johns explained, “We gain a lot of intelligence from these operations, and sometimes we develop new sources as a result. And every kilo of coke we take off the streets is one that doesn’t make its way to American kids.”

The Southwest border, by the numbers: 2,000: approximate number of miles the U.S. Southwest border shares with Mexico; $18-39 billion: estimated number of illegal dollars that flow annually from the U.S. accross the Southwest border to enrich Mexican drug cartels; 2,600: number of drug-related muders in Juarez, Mexico in 2009; 28,000: number of drug-related muders in Mexico since 2006; 93%: estimated amount of all South American cocaine that moves through Mexico on its way to U.S. customers; 701,000: kilograms of marijuana seized during the first five months of 2010 in the Southwest border states (Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas); 6,154: total number of individual seizures of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine during the first five months of 2010 in the Southwest border states; 12: the number of FBI border corruption task forces operating along the Southwest border; 1: the number of corrupt border guards it would take to allow a terrorist carrying a weopon of mass destruction into the U.S.

Al Sharpton’s march was more about hate than Dr. King’s dream. From Secular Stupidest:

~ These people were a bane to MLK when he was in the midst of his struggle. THEY changed the climate of what he was trying to do! They said he was too much of a passivist! They are hypocrite race-baiters! According to them white people don’t share the wealth of their civil rights. Alveda King said it best: We are the “Human Race” . How different the presentation of this instigating march & their words in comparison to this ~JP

Dr. King’s dream was hijacked, alright. His family spoke at the non-partisan, non-political uplifting event at the Lincoln Memorial instead of taking part in this. What does that say to you?

*Update: check out the positivity and tolerance from the left on Twitter:

~H/T to kshaidle for the FYI on this blog & article

The overt ridiculousness I saw from white liberals towards black conservatives on 8/28 was unbelievable.

Great video from Marooned in Marin via P/O’ed Patriot shows powerful speaker Michael Warns and black republicans take on white liberals who condescend to ask them where their African religion went:

I interviewed Warns for PJTV; this fellow in this shot is the one who told Warns and the black republican group that they were “disgusting” and that he would “pray for them.”

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski was dealt another major setback Monday when the Alaska Libertarian Party announced it would not swap its chosen candidate for the Republican senator if she loses her party’s nomination.

“We have decided that we will not offer the nomination to Lisa Murkowski for the Senate seat, even if came to that, because of fundamental differences,” said Alaska Libertarian Party Chairman Scott Kohlhaas.


In what could be one of the biggest upsets in Alaskan political history, Murkowski trails attorney Joe Miller by 1,668 votes in the race for the GOP nomination — with more than 20,000 ballots still to be counted, a process that will start Tuesday. But if Murkowski loses the GOP nomination, her only two options to stay in the race would be to run as a write-in candidate, or try to take the place of the Libertarian Party’s nominee, David Haase.

The Alaska Libertarian Party, however, took the latter option off the table Monday after an emergency meeting with its executive committee this weekend.

The party voted unanimously Sunday not to allow Murkowski to run on its ticket if Murkowski’s opponent, Miller, is declared the GOP primary victor.


Kohlhaas emphasized that Murkowski’s campaign never officially reached out to see if she could appear on the ballot under the Libertarian Party banner. However, he said the committee wanted to “quash” swirling speculation that she could run on the ticket instead Haase.

“I want everyone to know that we were never approached by Lisa and/or her campaign,” Kohlhaas said.


In response to the Libertarian Party’s decision, Murkowski spokesman Steve Wackowski said Monday the campaign was “solely focused on ensuring a fair vote count tomorrow.” Alaska election officials will count the bulk of the remaining 20,000 ballots Tuesday, and if necessary, will continue the effort through next week until a winner is declared.

~We only have Murkowski’s camp to worry about stealing the election

Murkowski told reporters last week that talk about her political options was “premature,” and said she would wait until all the ballots were counted before making a decision.

A Public Policy Polling survey released this weekend indicated that Murkowski would be competitive if she ran as a libertarian candidate. The poll said that in the three-way race, Miller received 38 percent, Murkowski received 34 percent and Democratic nominee Scott McAdams received 22 percent.

But now that running as a Libertarian is no longer an option, Murkowski’s only remaining road if she loses the race is to run as a write-in candidate — an arduous and expensive process. According to the Senate Historical Office, only one senator has ever successfully mounted a write-in campaign for his or her seat: South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond.

The news is also a major boost for Democrats and McAdams, who the poll showed had a much better chance in the race against Miller if Murkowski is not a candidate. The survey also showed Miller leading McAdams, 47 percent to 39 percent.

Kohlhaas cited several of Murkowski’s votes in Congress and in the state legislature as reasons for the party’s decision. He said Murkowski’s votes in Congress in favor of a bank bailout and authorizing the war in Iraq were contrary to his party’s principles.

“She’s a nice lady,” Kohlhaas said. “We wouldn’t tell a sitting senator to get lost. But we just had to let people know.”

Details are now emerging of repeated violations by Sen. Murkowski’s ballot observers, and are detailed in this letter from a prestigious Alaska law firm. Please read the letter – you might have to reload the page if the document does not appear the first time you try to access it: CLICK HERE to READ THE DETAILED LETTER

We have learned that the NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) has sent a team of lawyers and political hacks – including the NRSC’s top lawyer – to Alaska to potentially manipulate the vote-counting process in the Alaska GOP Senate race.

Their apparent goal: to help Liberal Sen. Lisa Murkowski steal the election from Conservative Republican, Joe Miller, who currently leads in the vote count.

Joe Miller’s campaign has discovered that operatives are even calling absentee voters and asking them how they voted, purportedly so that they can figure out which absentee ballots to throw out (Joe Miller voters) and which ones to keep (Lisa Murkowski voters).


We need to fight back against this attempt to manipulate the election process. We went through this with Al Franken in Minnesota when the Democrat Party pulled this stunt – we can’t stand for it in Alaska with the Republican Party establishment.

Please sign the petition and then share it with your friends. We’re going to make a big spectacle of this if the NRSC tries to steal this election for Lisa Murkowski. We WILL hold them accountable. Sign the petition – HERE
