OK, here it comes.
Media Frenzy101 course.
First you lead with the governor of Missouri putting the National Guard at the ready.
Then you talk about how protesters have been training for weeks, now. Key quote from one of the organizers from that story:
“And I also think we’re not going to get change in this society unless white people are just a little bit afraid.”
Hold the phone.
Sounds to me like what great evil? Racism.
There is a fine line between free speech and sedition. Peaceful assembly? No problem. Rioting? Big problem. That would be an attempted revolution.
Wrapped up in fuzzy-think liberal jargon like “deep love” and it might just get pulled off. Forget that the “target list” smacks of military thinking and revolution tactics. Just claim free speech often enough to keep the “public” supporting the “revolution.”
Worst of all: The organizers seem bent on rioting no matter what the Grand Jury comes out with.
Now, last time I checked, we were still a country of Laws If a Grand Jury, with all the evidence before it comes out with a verdict that stops short of what the “organizers” want, which seems to a lynching, by the way, then at what point does freedom of speech turn to revolutionary hate speech? Inciting to riot was a crime, last I heard.
The law is the law. But when two bit organizers in positions from the White House on down, ignore the law (like on immigration) and due process (pending in St. Louis), then that, dear reader, is a revolution.
Because the Left didn’t win at the polls, look for them to turn this into a media frenzy that ignores the founding principles of this once-Great Nation: Rule of law, due process, and the peaceful pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.
Unless you believe in lynch mobs, which seems to be the mindset of the revolutionaries and being promoted by the mainstream media.
I am no great supporter of Eric Holder (Gunwalker/Fast & Furious and contempt of congress, remember?) or how the administration is about to break a lot of other laws.
But the pending Media Frenzy over Ferguson seems curiously timed to coincide with the administration’s amnesty agenda.
If a genuine despot were planning to overthrow America, would video of a lynch mob and throwing out laws on illegal immigration be sufficient?
Watch closely. The answer should arrive shortly.
Tomorrow is also the 19th. And the number 19 has significant in what?
America has enemies, both foreign and domestic and for whatever reason, the rule of law and due process is not acceptable to our enemies. Notice how this key point will be buried and the term attempted revolution won’t be used. But make no mistake, this week is likely to raise the curtain on a different country than you were born in.
Think of it as the Divided States of America.
Need a Third Ring?
If amnesty and Ferguson aren’t two rings in the media circus, watch this one surface as number three: The ruling government in Greece is not going for the last refinancing plans from the so-called troika of creditors. And without the tranche of EU money, Greece is toast financial.
Gold is up $14 on the future’s market and the Dow is flat.
Will anyone notice (other than us because we find things like this instructive) that the recent strength of the dollar could fail if international faith is lost on the dollar in the TV spectacle expected this week?
Keep your score pad handy.
New Producer Price Final Demand numbers are just out:
The Producer Price Index for final demand rose 0.2 percent in October, seasonally adjusted, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This increase followed a 0.1-percent decline in September and no change in August. On an unadjusted basis, the index for final demand advanced 1.5 percent for the 12 months ended in October, the smallest 12-month increase since a 1.2-percent rise in February 2014. (See table A.) In October, the 0.2-percent rise in final demand prices can be traced to the index for final demand services, which advanced 0.5 percent. In contrast, prices for final demand goods moved down 0.4 percent. Within intermediate demand, prices for processed goods declined 0.9 percent, the index for unprocessed goods fell 2.4 percent, and prices for services inched up 0.1 percent.
Pretend like it matters.
