Herman Curry, 16 YO Alexander Kamara and Suspected Gunman Sheldon Olge Killed at Wilmington Soccer Tournament

JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL:  Three dead, including a teenager, as gun fire erupts at the Marcus Garvey Soccer Tournament at Eden Park in Wilmington, DE, Sunday.

Spectators Herman Curry, 47, of New Castle and 16 year old Alexander Kamara of Pike Creek, were shot and later died in the hospital from their injuries. Police identified one of the suspects, Sheldon Olge, 43, who was killed when spectators returned fire.

Otis Phillips, 34, of New Castle, and Jeffrey Phillips, 22, of Wilmington, have been arrested in connection with the shooting. Both men were charged with two counts of first-degree murder, one count of first degree attempted murder, conspiracy and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

The tournament was reportedly organized by Herman Curry and it seems that he was targeted. Obviously Sheldon Olge, Otis Phillips and Jeffrey Phillips have no clue about what Marcus Garvey stood for.

Tom Junod Says the Blood of American Teen Abdulrahman al-Awlaki On the Head of President Obama Who Ordered Drone Attack (Esquire Magazine)

Tom Junod wrote an article, “The Lethal Presidency of Barack Obama,” in Esquire Magazine saying the blood of American Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, 16, was killed in a drone strike ordered by President Obama. Junod said the killing of the son of the alleged terrorist, Anwar al-Awlaki, seems to have been an accident, but contradicts the narrative that the Obama administration says it’s careful when ordering such strikes to avoid the innocent. In other words, he deems Barack Obama’s presidency as lethal. He maintains that the Obama administration should not be allowed to keep the killing of an American citizen secret.

His name was American Abdulrahman al-Awlaki and he was 16 years old when he died — when he was killed by a drone strike in Yemen, by the light of the moon. He was the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, who was also born in America, who was also an American citizen, and who was killed by drone two weeks before his son was, along with another American citizen named Samir Khan. Of course, both Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan were, at the very least, traitors to their country — they had both gone to Yemen and taken up with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and al-Awlaki had proven himself an expert inciter of those with murderous designs against America and Americans: the rare man of words who could be said to have a body count. When he was killed, on September 30, 2011, President Obama made a speech about it; a few months later, when the Obama administraton’s public-relations campaign about its embrace of what has come to be called “targeted killing” reached its climax in a front-page story in the New York Times that presented the President of the United States as the last word in deciding who lives and who dies, he was quoted as saying that the decision to put Anwar al-Awlaki on the kill list — and then to kill him — was “an easy one.”

[…]

The Obama Administration has never formally acknowledged its role in either death, but it has leaked a tremendous amount of information about its decision to target Anwar al-Awlaki because its decision to target Anwar al-Awlaki has evolved into something like “an Obama doctrine” when it comes to targeted killing. The idea that American citizenship is no more a refuge against the attacks of American drones than farflung geography; the idea that the secret deliberations of the executive branch count as “due process” even when an American citizen is being considered for execution without trial; the idea, indeed, that “due process does not guarantee judicial process”: all these ideas have entered the public sphere largely because the Obama administration made the extraordinary decision to target and kill an American citizen named Anwar al-Awlaki. Source: Esquire Magazine

He appeared on CNN Newsroom and Brooke Baldwin asked him if he thinks President Obama murdered  Abdulrahman al-Awlaki through the drone program. Tom Junod replied, “President Obama killed this teen through a program that has expanded the use of killing in a reckless manner.” So now we are calling President Obama a murderer. Wow. Tom Junod is coddling the legacy of a terrorist, Anwar al-Awlaki, who wanted to see harm come to his native country.

DOJ Unseals Indictment in Murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Offers $1 Million Reward for Capture of 4 More Suspects (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

NEWSFLASH: The Justice Department has unsealed the indictment in the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and that an elite squad of federal agents first fired bean bags, not bullets, at a heavily armed drug cartel group in the mountains south of Tucson, Ariz., last December. Five individuals were charged in the agent’s death and a sixth has been charged in a related incident. The U.S. is also offering a reward of up to $1 million leading to the arrest of four outstanding suspects believed to hiding out in Mexico.

According to the indictment, Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Barraza, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Lionel Portillo-Meza are charged with crimes including first degree murder, second degree murder, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, attempted interference with commerce by robbery, use and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence, assault on a federal officer and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.   A sixth defendant, Rito Osorio-Arellanes, is charged only with conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery.

According to the indictment, Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Barraza, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Lionel Portillo-Meza are charged with crimes including first degree murder, second degree murder, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, attempted interference with commerce by robbery, use and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence, assault on a federal officer and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. A sixth defendant, Rito Osorio-Arellanes, is charged only with conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery.

The 11-count third superseding indictment, which was handed up by a federal grand jury in the District of Arizona on Nov. 7, 2011, alleges that on Dec. 14, 2010, five of the defendants (Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Barraza, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Lionel Portillo-Meza)  engaged in a firefight with Border Patrol agents.   During the exchange of gunfire, Agent Terry was shot and killed.   The indictment alleges that the defendants had illegally entered the United States from Mexico for the purpose of robbing drug traffickers of their contraband.   In addition to the murder of Agent Terry, the indictment also alleges that the five defendants assaulted Border Patrol Agents William Castano, Gabriel Fragoza and Timothy Keller, who were with Agent Terry during the firefight.

“Agent Terry served his country honorably and made the ultimate sacrifice in trying to protect it from harm, and we will stop at nothing to bring those responsible for his murder to justice,” said Attorney General Eric Holder.   “This investigation has previously resulted in one defendant being charged with Agent Terry’s murder and taken into custody, and today’s announcement reflects the department’s unrelenting commitment to finding and arresting the other individuals responsible for this horrific tragedy so that Agent Terry’s family, friends and fellow law enforcement agents receive the justice they deserve.” Source: Department of Justice

Is Mitt Romney Forgetting the First Rule of Politics to Define Oneself Before Opponent Does?

Is Mitt Romney Forgetting the First Rule of Politics to Define Oneself Before Opponent Does? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Is presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney forgetting the first rule of politics to define oneself before the opponent does? Um, he can’t define himself because he is out of touch with just about every American on Main Street and in line with people like David Koch. That’s evident from one of his donors in the Hamptons saying “lower income people don’t understand what’s going on,” according to Think Progress.

The Note: “One of the first rules of politics is to define yourself before your opponent does it for you. The Obama campaign has made this its mantra with a relentless focus on making Mitt Romney out to be something of a cross between Gordon Gekko and George W. Bush.”

Mitt Romney was largely ignored during the 2008 presidential campaign when voters chose John McCain over him. He didn’t define himself then and he hasn’t done so during the 2012 campaign. Former presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich dinged him pretty bad, painting him as a) the worst Republican candidate to go up against Obama in the general elections; and b) as someone who fired many workers during his stint as CEO of Bain Capital.

The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee are just picking up where Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich left off. Mitt Romney hasn’t “walked the real streets” of America as he claims, otherwise, he would have defined himself from the 2008 presidential campaign. One thing I know is that he’s a very liberal Republican masquerading as an ultra conservative to get votes. Mitt Romney = RINO.

NASA Panorama Shows Stunning Images on Mars From Greely Haven Outcrop

NASA Panorama Shows Stunning Images on Mars From Greely Outcrop (NASA)

Beautiful, is the only way I can explain that panoramic view of Mars that NASA released recently. NASA  describes the images as “the next best thing” to being on the Red Planet. The images were taken from the “Opportunity” rover’s panoramic camera, or “Pancam,” between December 21, 2011 and May 8, 2012.

The panorama shows the Martian terrain during winter as the rover was  stationed on an outcrop called “Greely Haven” on part of the Endeavour Crater, according to NASA’s release. The site was named after Ronald Greely, a scientist on the project, who died in 2011.

“The view provides rich geologic context for the detailed chemical and mineral work that the team did at Greeley Haven over the rover’s fifth Martian winter, as well as a spectacularly detailed view of the largest impact crater that we’ve driven to yet with either rover over the course of the mission,” Pancam lead scientist Arizona State University professor Jim Bell said in a statement.

Obama Parade Parody “Obamanation” Sparks Outrage in Huntsville UT

Obama Parade Parody “Obamanation” Sparks Outrage in Huntsville UT

A parade entry in the annual Fourth of July parade in Huntsville, UT, sparked outrage over its name, “Obamanation.” The Drudge Report is running with this, most likely implying that we are indeed living through an “Obamanation” or “abomination.”

The float showed a person dressed as President Obama with one sign that read “Huntsville Welcomes Obama’s Farewell Tour?” On the back, another sign said, “Ask about our assault gun plan. Call Eric Holder.”

On one side of the issue, people are saying the float was disrespectful and had no place in a patriotic parade. The other side says it was all in good fun.

Huntsville Mayor Jim Truett and City Council member Laurie Allen say the entry doesn’t reflect the views of the city. They say it was entered at the last minute, not through usual protocol and they would not have approved it if they had seen it. Source

Here we go again….all the haters are coming out of the woodwork as the election campaign heats up. I don’t get it, George W. Bush left the country mired in muck and Obama gets blamed at this juncture? Obamanation? What about Bushanation or Bushapocalypse?

Adaisha Miller Fatally Shot as She Hugged Off-Duty Officer Causing Service Weapon to Discharge (NY Daily News)

SHOCK:  Adaisha Miller was killed when she hugged an off-duty police officer while dancing at a party while celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday, and his service weapon accidentally fired, the NY Daily News reports. Adaisha Miller would have turned 25 Monday, Yolanda McNair.

The shooting reportedly occurred at an outdoor social gathering on Detroit’s west side at about 12:30 a.m., said police Sgt. Eren Stephens.

According to Stephens, the woman “embraced the officer from behind, causing the holstered weapon to accidently discharge.” The bullet punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital.

Stephens said the Detroit officer will remain on administrative duties while authorities investigate the shooting and report their findings to the Wayne County prosecutor. The officer’s name was not released. Source

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Adaisha Miller, another young life gone too soon.
