Take a good look at the results of the violent public disturbance and the anticipated unrestrained actions of expressing objection to justice in Ferguson also known as rioting and destruction:

Now, the bombastic rhetoric begins. The Rev. Al Sharpton said today, "We are going to continue to pursue justice and not just in Ferguson. It will be across the country."

Sharpton announced that he will lead a summit in DC next week saying the purpose is for "A ongoing strategy to address this injustice." 

"It ain't over," said the attorney for the family of Michael Brown.

He's right about that.

As Sharpton Rose, So Did His Unpaid Taxes

Excerpt from the main story:

“Mr. Sharpton has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills. Records reviewed by The New York Times show more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses. The Rev. Al Sharpton, who came to prominence as an imposing figure in a track suit, shouting indignantly at the powerful, stood quietly on a stage last month at the Four Seasons restaurant, his now slender frame wrapped in a finely tailored suit, as men in power lined up to exclaim their admiration for him.”

In Wake of Beheadings and Rise of Islamic State, Baltimore Mosque Gets $74K Taxpayer-Funded FEMA Grant…For Security

“Baltimore mosque gets $74K taxpayer-funded FEMA grant…for security,” Posted on November 15, 2014 by creeping via ISB Bolsters Security with $74K Government Grant.

“In the month of October, the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) received a $74,675 grant from the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NGSP) run by Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). The grant will be used towards upgrading, enhancing and adding to ISB’s security infrastructure, according to the official letter sent by ISB President Mohammed Abdul Khadeer.

“In place since 2005, the grant is a part of Department of Homeland Security’s Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI). To be eligible a non- profit organization must be, “determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security to be at high risk of terrorist attack due to their ideology, beliefs, or mission.” For fiscal year 2014, $13,000,000 was allocated for the NGSP.

“Muslim Link spoke with Faisel Maniar who sits on ISB’s Grants Committee with Mohsin Majid and Attaulla Khan as members and Abid Husain as the chair. When the notification for the FEMA grant was announced, the committee wasted no time and developed the winning proposal. The committee also benefited with inputs from Rehan Alavi, former ISB Council member.

“The news of ISB’s 2014 receiving the grant was blogged out on several anti- Muslim websites, which often spew hate rhetoric about Muslims and keep regurgitating fear tactics about ‘stealth jihad’. Their main objection is that tax payer’s money is being used to keep Muslim schools and religious centers— tax exempt organizations—safe from attacks. ISB has been a recipient since 2005.

“The hate rhetoric spewed from the Koran can not be equaled. But the author has a point on the taxes. End all taxpayer-funded grants to all tax-exempt organizations…religious or not, Muslim or Jewish. End the IRS and DHS too”.

From Laney B:

This is from John Podhoretz of Commentary.  He always gets it right.

"The spectacle of mass amnesty without benefit of law will shock ordinary voters, including many who are Democrats or who think the immigration system should have been fixed. After the orders, responsibility for the failure to do so will rest on Obama, not the Republicans. What the president may be doing with these orders is to remind the voters that parties that grow too comfortable with exercising authority without benefit of law must be taught a lesson, one that will be paid for by his would-be Democratic successor in 2016. Rather than building his legacy, the president may actually be ensuring that his time in office is remembered more for his lack of respect for the rule of law than any actual accomplishments."
