Riots and looting broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, again last night. But then a dozen people did something that offers hope. When the police dared not interfere, they protected the stores that had come under attack. That shows the people in the community want peace, not the race war someone is trying to provoke.

Asking for martial law?

Regular readers know the United States Department of Justice has prepared for martial law for years. They have placed up-armored Army and Marine surplus vehicles with police departments and sheriff’s offices, large and small. And you, the taxpayer, have paid for this excess. Of course some police department would use those vehicles for some totally unnecessary “bad-ass” policing. But could anyone say ahead of time that a United States Representative would ask for martial law?

Editor’s note (paraphrase from Dwight Kehoe at TPATH): The Attorney General of the US seems to think white people are cowards on the subject of race relations. So does the (de facto) President, in the middle of making race relations worse. Here, “The Eagle” says that if they want a conversation on race relations, now they’ve got it, and in spades – pun definitely intended.

The presidential debates last night overshadowed the release of Mr. Obama’s speech in New Orleans. Speaking in an unnatural and patronizing cadence, the Liar in Chief did what he does best – he lied. He lied about the government’s lifeline to New Orleans and he lied to ingratiate himself with the Black ministers in attendance. Mitt Romney can present evidence of his ability to unite. Mr. Obama has a history of polarization.

The past twenty-four hours have seen the release of more videos featuring one person than is usual. These latest Obama videos show an ugly side to Barack Obama. Many suspected it, but few could justly show it—until now. In these latest videos, Barack Obama appeals to racism in his audience. But that appeal is incidental to his real motive: wholesale theft under color of law.

Race war rhetoric beginning

The rhetoric from some Members of Congress vindicates the anonymous source who predicted that Barack H. Obama would start a race war. Worse yet, a group that has tied itself to Mr. Obama might now be preparing for exactly that.

Race riots in 2012 campaign?

Would Barack Obama foment race riots to stay in the White House? An anonymous White House source (or sources) say(s) exactly that.

Yale will soon disband its scholarly anti-Semitism program. This happened because Jews are divided, but Muslims are not.

The Yale anti-Semitism program

In 2006, Yale University founded the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Anti-Semitism (YIISA). It was the first program of its kind, and still the only one. Charles Small, who also founded the Institute for the Study of Global Anti-Semitism and Policy, directed. YIISA ran a series of seminars on the subject, beginning in the fall of 2006.
