Mike Draper said he’s been told there are “likely fatalities” but it has not been determined who they may be, nor whether the pilot of the “Galloping Ghost” aircraft that went down survived.

DEVELOPING: RENO, Nev. — An airplane crashed Friday at an air race here, causing what one event official described as a “mass-casualty situation,” as local media reports dozens injured.

The plane reportedly went into a nosedive and crash on or near the stands, and video of the crash showed a horrific scene of bodies and wreckage at the front of the stands.

Mike Draper, a spokesman for the air races, told The Associated Press that Jimmy Leeward was the pilot of the P-51 Mustang that crashed into the box seat area at the front of the grandstand about 4:30 p.m.

He said he did not have any information on the number of injured, but FoxReno.com cited an unnamed source putting the death toll at two so far, with about 30 people injured. KOLO, citing fire department sources, reported as many as 60 people were injured, including about 30 in critical condition.

The National Championship Air Races draws thousands of people every year in September to watch various military and civilian planes race.

Gird Your Loins, This Is War Against Capitalist Bloodsucker American: New Black Panther President Shabazz Tells Harlem Audience To Fight War Here At Home

Thanks to NakedEmperorNews1 :

I JUST got home from work 90 minutes ago. This is the Fourth Headline Story I am posting. Putting together what they are planning tomorrow, it is JUST too much of a coincidence Shabazz is acting up. And this from Grassfire sent me over the edge believing a major storm is brewing & it all ties into why Obama believes HE will be reelected. Read this from Business Insider, Obama Confident About Reelection Chances.

I JUST posted this yesterday & it is still in the magazine: Obama Quoting Appearance @ LaRaza: ‘I’d Like to Work My Way Around Congress’ ~ JP

Campaigning for the Hispanic vote, President Obama told a Latino audience that his $447 billion package of tax cuts and public works projects would put more money into the pockets of Latino workers, business owners while increasing opportunities for Hispanics.

“It’s been a long and frustrating road for all of us,” said Obama to the audience — no doubt ripping conservatives who both panned his jobs plan and continue fighting for secured borders.

Still, Obama believes changes in immigration laws are the key to fulfilling what he calls “the idea of America.”

So what does Obama mean?

During a July speech to the national Council of La Raza, the nation’s largest Hispanic advocacy group that actively supports immigration reforms that favor illegal aliens, Obama bragged that he’d “poached quite a few of your alumni to work in my administration.”

This is Obama’s objective — his vision for America, and worse yet, he’s counting on you paying for it! This is utterly outrageous and unacceptable. That’s why Grassfire Nation has launched a national petition demanding “No Amnesty for Illegals!”

Be PREPARED!

Radical. Dangerous. Violent. Deadly.

No, I’m not referring to Islamic terrorists.

I’m talking about anti-capitalist terrorists in our own country.

Let me explain…

In the aftermath of the deadly British riots, American radicals are planning hundreds of simultaneous violent uprisings to topple our system of capitalism.

They plan on revolting in the financial districts of every capital in all 50 states! From Boise Idaho… to Topeka Kansas… to Sacramento California…the progressives will be rioting. I hope you plan on making a trip to the country on September 17th, because I certainly will.

~ This is one time I thank God for being rural…

World Net Daily reports, “Activists are advertising on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter for a “Day of Rage” on Sept. 17 to begin with the “occupation” of Wall Street and continue with protests across the nation.” Protesters training to incite violence, resist arrest, disrupt the legal system.

These and other battle cries were posted on the recent Twitter feed of a group calling itself Take The Square. The organization is one of the social media planners behind the “Day of Rage” protest slated to target Wall Street on Saturday.

WND previously reported how the U.S. section of the protest, complete with a planned tent city in downtown Manhattan, is closely tied to the founders of ACORN and leaders of major U.S. unions, including the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.

The protest aims to take root nationwide.

Activists are advertising on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter for a “Day of Rage” on Sept. 17 to begin with the “occupation” of Wall Street and continue with protests across the nation.

Planners have their own website – USDayofRage which tells protesters to “bring your own tent.”

Defund ACORN & The SEIU – NOW!

Friends & Patriots, we MUST find our cajones & Stand up against this tyranny! SEND 535 FAXES TO ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS -. Spread this like wildfire in the next twelve hours to everyone, anyone you can think of. I will tweet this post often. It will appear on my facebook. But we are all needed.

From AmeriPac:

The people pulling the strings behind these protests are the thugs at ACORN (Association of Community Organizations For Reform Now) and the SEIU (Service Employees International Union.) Both who by the way, are closely linked with Barack Obama. It’s very interesting these folks chose to launch a massive demonstration against capitalism right before Obama’s re-election. Maybe they want to drum up some grassroots support to keep our socialist-in-chief in the White House.

Contrary to what the left-wing media reports, ACORN is NOT dead. It has merely splintered into dozens of smaller state chapters. Here are just a few of the ACORN chapters hiding out under different names…

* Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania Communities Organizing for Change (PCOC)
* Texas: Texas Organizing Project (TOP)
* California: Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE)
* Missouri: Missourians Organizing for Reform Empowerment (MORE)

I close this from someone I admire very much, Judi McLeod , who wrote an excellent piece titled:

“Day of Rage” Obama re-election team in disguise?

Marxists, ever ready to exploit the masses, are out to lunch on this one

Tomorrow’s “Day of Rage” in cities across the United States is doomed for certain failure because “Day of Rage” won’t resonate with average people.

“Bring your own tent!” is the message sent out to protesters on the social networks. Recession-bound people, some of whom are trying to move their families in with relatives, live in cars and sleep on park benches, not tents.

The poor forced to take to tents are not paid the least bit of attention by George Soros, and no one pays them to shout lofty chants like “Eat the Rich!” while standing around on Manhattan sidewalks.

Unlike protesters who call activists to action and take pictures with their cell phones, the genuinely poor had their cell phones shut off by not being able to pay the bills and their rusted out vehicles repo’ed.

Trying to survive does not give them the luxury of covering their faces and going out on the Protest de Jour.

~ Snippets from her article:

* Still on a high from turning Egypt over to the Muslim Brotherhood, “Day of Rage” protesters have been training to create chaos, resist arrest and to disrupt legal systems for months. Naturally, their training has been going on in the comfort of warm summer months and their training bolstered by pay checks.

* Behind the bandanas meant to disguise their identities are ACORN activists and the riffraff of major unions like the Service Employees International Union, SEIU—the ones who frighten 14-year-old boys home alone.

* Tomorrow’s “Day of Rage” honors the “Days of Rage” organized by the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization co-founded by Ayers and Dohrn, now close associates of Barack Hussein Obama.

* The mainstream media will do somersaults to get “Day of Rage” protesters saturation coverage.

But this is one protest where bandanas cannot hide the faces of the radicals.

Documents obtained by Fox News suggest that for decades Pakistan spread nuclear weapon technology around the globe in exchange for cash, political influence and help with its own atomic bomb program. Among those on the other side of the deals: China, Iran, North Korea and Libya.

A.Q. Khan, right, poses for a photo with Simon Henderson, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The photo was provided exclusively to Fox News.

The charges are contained in two documents written by A.Q. Khan, the Pakistani nuclear arms trafficker long thought to be the mastermind behind an elaborate global supply and procurement network: a thirteen-page confession to government authorities and a dramatic letter hastily written to his wife as an international manhunt tightened around him.

In a Fox News exclusive, never-before-seen Khan photographs and documents will be featured in an upcoming special: “Fox News Reporting: Iran’s Nuclear Secrets,” airing Sept. 18 at 9 p.m. ET. The documents include the thirteen-page confession, the letter to his wife, and a Pakistani intelligence service report on Khan. The exclusive photographs show the Khans in a variety of intimate settings, including under house arrest. Fox News is also releasing the documents and photographs over the Internet today.

The extent of official Pakistan government involvement with Khan is a matter of intense and at times acrimonious debate among counter-proliferation experts. Was Khan a master criminal operating outside the system—or was he part of the system?

The documents obtained by Fox News are A.Q. Khan’s version of events. They should be carefully weighed against other available evidence. But with U.S.-Pakistan relations severely strained by the killing of Usama bin Laden and the imminent draw-down of U.S. troops in neighboring Afghanistan, the question of nuclear-armed Islamabad spreading weapons of mass destruction takes on a new urgency.

Fox News Reporting: Iran’s Nuclear Secrets…


Sunday, September 18 at 9 p.m. ET

Hosted by Bill Hemmer with reports from Amy Kellogg and Eric Shawn

It is a nightmare scenario — Iran armed with nuclear weapons.

While Tehran insists its nuclear ambition is strictly for civilian purposes, others contend their intentions will ultimately change an entire region.

This Fox News investigative special looks at the hard facts, going beyond the speculation into the evidence of Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program. We take you inside a shadowy world of murder, cyber-warfare, nuclear physics and old fashioned smuggling.

And we reveal never before seen documents detailing the role of Pakistani nuclear proliferator A.Q. Khan in Iran’s nuclear weapons program. In a Fox News exclusive, we present documents, photos and a dramatic confession letter Khan wrote to his wife, detailing how he sold nuclear weapon materials to Libya, North Korea and Iran.

How close is Iran to completing a nuclear bomb? Tune in this weekend, as Bill Hemmer hosts Fox News’ explosive investigation: “Iran’s Nuclear Secrets.”

TUCSON, Ariz. – An Air Force base was rattled Friday after a report of a man with a gun prompted panic and reports that someone had been shot at the sprawling facility on the edge of Tucson.

Traffic into and out of the base was being limited because of an unspecified security situation, but no one was shot or hurt, according to the public affairs office at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

The scare apparently was prompted by reports of someone with something that looked like a weapon, said Tech Sgt. Russ Martin. The reports haven’t been confirmed, Martin said.

“So the base is going into crisis action mode. We’re just locking down the base for the safety and security of the people on Davis-Monthan,” he said.

A military official said a special agent on the base reported that an armed individual walked into a building on the base on the outskirts of the southern Arizona city, where earlier this year a gunman gravely wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six people.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Ambulances were sent to the base, sparking fears of injuries, but it was just a case of bad timing, Martin said.

“Any ambulance you saw leaving earlier, not too long ago was actually a woman going into labor,” he said.

As the lockdown unfolded Friday, students were kept in schools on the base. Dunaway said traffic was reduced to a single point entry; vehicles lined up at the base’s main gate and were being turned around.

Davis-Monthan is adjacent to the Pima Air & Space Museum and the “boneyard” for old military and government airplanes that is a popular destination for aviation enthusiasts.

The base is the home of the 355th Fighter Wing, and provides attack airpower, combat support and medical forces, according to the base’s Facebook page.

Security at military bases has gained more attention in the last two years since an Army major went on a rampage at Fort Hood in Texas in 2009. Maj. Nidal Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the shooting spree. Investigators have foiled other plots against military bases in other parts of the country since Sept. 11.

A pair of bodies were found hanging from a Mexican bridge as a sign to social media users not to denounce drug cartels.

“Watch out, I’ve got my eye on you,” the placard said, according to photos from the scene, warning that the same would happen to all Internet trouble-makers. It was signed “Z,” a reference to the brutal Zetas drug gang, which operates in the area.

The victims, who have not been identified, were aged between 20 and 25 and were badly mutilated, said the official, who asked not to be named.

Two popular websites covering the Mexico drug war, Blog del Narco and Frontera al Rojo Vivo, were mentioned on the placard.

By Byron York, Washington Examiner

Facing growing opposition to his economic proposals and dimming prospects that Congress will pass other parts of his agenda, President Obama told a Hispanic group in Washington Wednesday that when it comes to the issue of immigration, “I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

“As I mentioned when I was at La Raza a few weeks back, I wish I had a magic wand and could make this all happen on my own,” Obama told a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

As he continued, Obama conceded that “we’ve got laws on the books that have to be upheld.” But he quickly added there are different ways to uphold the laws on the books.

A Ponzi scheme is an investment fraud that involves the payment of purported returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors. Ponzi scheme organizers often solicit new investors by promising to invest funds in opportunities claimed to generate high returns with little or no risk. In many Ponzi schemes, the fraudsters focus on attracting new money to make promised payments to earlier-stage investors and to use for personal expenses, instead of engaging in any legitimate investment activity.

Don’t be alarmed, that faint popping noise you hear is the heads of nearby lefties exploding. Perry Rips Obama Regime: “They Are Socialist,” Their Policies Are “Socialism”…

(NY Times) — In an interview with Time magazine, Gov. Rick Perry showed that he had no intention of softening the cactus-thorned rhetoric he developed during his decades in Texas politics, notably repeating his characterization of President Obama’s policies as “socialist.”

From the TIME interview:

Now that you’ve been in the race for while, do you feel pressure to temper some of your rhetoric, like calling the Obama administration socialist?

No, I still believe they are socialist. Their policies prove that almost daily. Look, when all the answers emanate from Washington D.C., one size fits all, whether it’s education policy or whether it’s healthcare policy, that is, on its face, socialism.
