Demorats threaten Demorats: vote or else

From the NYPost.com:

Democrats: vote or we’ll kick your ass

by Carl Campanile and Natalie O’Neill

Democrats are telling voters that they had better head to the polls — or else.

The New York State Democratic Committee is bullying people into voting next week with intimidating letters warning that it can easily find out which slackers fail to cast a ballot next Tuesday.

Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record,” the letter says.

“We will be reviewing voting records . . . to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014.”

It ends with a line better suited to a mob movie than a major political party: “If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.”

The letter and accompanying post card was criticized even by party members, with one Democratic consultant saying it was the wrong way to inspire votes.

“It’s a threatening letter. It’s a scare piece that is unnecessary and inappropriate,” the insider said.

Brooklyn and Manhattan residents who received the note Wednesday were furious, calling it an attempt to browbeat them into showing up at the polls.

“I’m outraged. Whether I vote or not is none of your business!” said a Manhattan voter, who was so incensed that she complained to a local Democratic leader.

“The letter is ludicrous and menacing,” said the voter, who requested anonymity.

The woman also received a report card of her voting record, pointing out that she had failed to vote in two of the last four elections.

Overall, the notices were sent out to 1 million registered Democrats who had failed to vote in previous midterm elections, according to the group.

The committee — chaired by former Gov. David Paterson — defended the scare tactic, calling it standard practice throughout the country.

“This flier is part of the nationwide Democratic response to traditional Republican voter-suppression efforts, because Democrats believe our democracy works better when more people vote, not less,” said Peter Kauffmann, a committee spokesman.

Trust me, ladies and gentlemen, the Demorats are pissing their pants over the upcoming election results, as in: they’re going to lose both the House and the Senate.

Harry Reid is begging for support.

The Washington Post indicates there is a 95% chance the Republicans will take the Senate, and a 99% chance Republicans will take the House.

Ferguson: turn everything upside down

Ferguson PD

Ferguson PD.  How many of these officers represent outside jurisdictions?

From MSNBC.com:

Shakeup of Ferguson police force expected

by Trymaine Lee

The first steps in a major shakeup of the Ferguson, Missouri police department – including the resignation of Chief Thomas Jackson – could come as early as next week, according to local and federal officials who’ve been briefed on plans still being worked out by city and state leaders. 

The plan, described by a source with direct knowledge of the plans as “extremely delicate,” said the details are still being hashed out in closed-door meetings between Ferguson city and St. Louis County officials who have sought consultation from the Justice Department, which is conducting a civil rights investigation into the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in August. The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the plan could include not just the resignation of Chief Jackson but the resignation of Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed Brown on a Ferguson street, setting the city into weeks of unrest. 

This would, of course, include Officer Darren Wilson who has been found guilty of — wait for it — nothing yet.

First, the website of Ferguson Missouri itself:

Then the website of the Ferguson City PD.  Specifically avoiding any reference to travails whatsoever.

Further, however:

The source who spoke with MSNBC said Chief Jackson and Officer Wilson are expected to be eased out of the Ferguson police force, before what could be a full-scale take over of the Ferguson force by the St. Louis County police.

Eased out.  Despite no conclusions being made on any level for any one in any amount of time.  And yet, simultaneously, Ferguson has no retort and is apparently guilty of any and every accusation made against it directly and peripherally.

Who would I kick to the curb, if you asked me — a law enforcement officer with more than 41 years of experience in the venue?

The Chief would be toastal history.  And my officer would be protected as much as he could.

The Chief, no matter his pay rate, was and is incompetent.  He made too many holdbacks and didn’t grasp the importance of being frank with the media where and when he could.  Because, I suspect, his department was/is generally puerile and susceptible to the ministrations of local and national media that was twenty steps ahead of him at every turn.

You pay your Police Chief to be competent.  Jackson was not.  He Grokked not the concept of the release of information if and when you can.  He Grokked not the concept of approving tac sniper teams pointing long guns at protesters.  And he Grokked not the concept of processing your active crime scene for forensics as rapidly as possible given your unstable surrounding populace.  As a body lie on the ground in the heat.

In a two words — very much like Mr Obola — Jackson was frankly “tone deaf.”

But should his entire department suffer because of his inexperience and lack of 2014 political competence?

No, it should not.  He should go.  No one else.

Further, melanin makes no difference to the police force.  If 50 out of 56 officers have pale skin, that is completely indifferent.  Competence should be the bottom line.

The competence or incompetence of a given agency is not predicated upon the melanin count of its employees — unless, of course, you are the federal government.

Wait.  I tend to make my easy point now.

Al Jazeera channel sinking: as well it should

ALJAZEERANo Muslim channel should succeed in the United States.

We are a Christian nation of originality, and Islam does not fit with the US.  Islam is a death cult adhered to by those of soft minds whose priority is everything but understanding.

From CBN.com:

Al-Jazeera America Ratings In The Tank

Memo to Al-Jazeera America: It ain’t working. The ratings for the pro-Islam network are down considerably compared to Current TV (the network it replaced). Being the unofficial cheerleader and pseudo-mouthpiece for Hezbollah, Hamas and ISIS won’t endear you to American audiences.

Read more below:

After 14 months on-air, the network is down 44 percent in total day ratings compared to its predecessor

The winner and loser of the lawsuit between Al Jazeera America and former Current TV CEO Al Gore is yet to be determined, but ratings comparisons between the two show a clear winner.

After buying Current TV in early 2013, and debuting over the summer that year, Al Jazeera has lost almost half of Current TV’s audience.

But here is the glorious news:

In its 14 months on-air, AJAM is averaging 14,000 viewers 5,000 demo viewers for total day. In primetime, its averaging 18,000 viewers and 6,000 demo viewers.

I could post and submit a 24-hour Tibetan Bell Ringing Channel, and acquire the ratings that al Jazeera has.  I could acquire 14,000 viewers for the Navel Cleansing Channel.  Or the Vietnamese Ballpeen Hammer Fighting Channel.  Or the Gregorian Chant Channel.

Or the Fishtank Cleaning Channel.  Frankly, I submit the Fishtank Cleaning Channel could rival CNN.

Just saying.

Shame on any American who was sufficiently stupid or daft or craven or ignorant of Leftists or jejune or recalcitrant enough to actually work for the al Jazeera channel.  You were clearly a Useful Tool for the absolute worst aspects of Islam.  You should  be so proud of yourselves.  You brainless dolts.

Ain’t Progressives and Muzzies and Leftists glorious?

Kettle calling the Hillary black?

Leftist Ralph Nader has some choice words for Hillary Clinton.

From the WashingtonPost.com:

Ralph Nader dubs Hillary Clinton ‘a menace to the United States’

by Cheryl K. Chumley

Ralph Nader, a former Green Party and Independent Party presidential candidate who frequently serves as a loud critic of federal safety standards, doesn’t have much love for presumptive Democratic Party White House candidate Hillary Clinton.

When asked by a writer with We Are Change what he thought of the the former Secretary of State seeking the nation’s highest office, Mr. Nader’s reply was less than enthusiastic.

“Well, Hillary is a corporatist and a militarist,” Mr. Nader said, Raw Story reported. “Do we want another corporatist and militarist? She thinks Obama is too weak. He doesn’t kill enough people overseas. So she’s a menace to the United States of America.”

The gild is off the lily?

Heh-heh.
