Even Russia Is Criticizing The Police Crackdown In Ferguson

As clashes continue between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, Russia's Foreign Ministry suggested on Wednesday that the United States should "pay closer attention" to its internal struggles over race and ethnicity.

Konstantin Dolgov, the ministry's human rights commissioner, said the situation in Ferguson should have a "sobering effect" on American society.

"We think U.S. authorities should pay closer attention to burning internal problems, including those related to ethnicity and race that still exist in the United States," Dolgov told the news channel Rossiya 24. "Try to solve them via legal constitutional practices rather than unjustified and inadequate violence."

"What is happening in Missouri right now should have a sobering effect on U.S. society and authorities," he added. "They are systematic problems. They are by no means limited to one particular city or state."

Dolgov criticized the police's use of force against protesters in Ferguson and the treatment of journalists covering the story on the ground, several of whom were arrested or detained over the last week. Dolgov said such actions appeared to stem from a desire to prevent Americans from seeing negative images of their own government.

OMG!!! It is conservatives that have labeled Obama as a "messiah" and have claimed that he is bigger than God. Not liberals. It was the conservative Newsweek owned by The Daily Beast that depicted Obama with a halo over his head... the line at the bottom of the cover said,“The First Gay President.” You are getting dumber everyday.
Evan Thomas said on Hardball: "Reagan was all about America. Obama has gone beyond that. Obama's standing above the country, above — above the world. He's sort of God."

Evan Thomas' grandfather, Norman Thomas, was a six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

If that tells you anything.

Barbara Walters in a recent interview recanted the liberals' fanaticism early on saying, "We all thought he was, well, a messiah."

Democrats Go After Ben Carson After He Wins Straw Poll
The Democratic National Committee is going after Ben Carson — who won a presidential straw poll of Republican voters in Iowa over the weekend — by drawing attention to colorful remarks made by the neurosurgeon. On Monday, the DNC sent a short email to reporters about “Ben Carson’s 2016 Momentum.”…

so those voters don't know that Carson was a Democrat who voted for Clinton?

Obama Linked Benghazi to Video 3 Days After CIA Eyewitnesses Confirmed No Protest There
December 31, 2012 - 9:44 PM
( CNSNews.com )- Three days after CIA and State Department eyewitnesses reported on Sept. 15 that there had been no protest in Benghazi, Libya, before terrorists attacked the U.S. diplomatic mission and a CIA facility there on Sept. 11, President Barack Obama and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney both publicly linked the attacks, which killed four Americans, to protests against an anti-Muslim video that had been posted on YouTube.
Carney did it at the White House press briefing on Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Obama did it later that same day in a taped interview with David Letterman.
However, according to a new report by the Senate Homeland Security Committee, personnel working at the CIA "Annex" in Benghazi on Sept. 11 reported on Sept. 15 that there had been no protest in Benghazi that day, and State Department security personnel who survived the Benghazi attacks told FBI interviewers on Sept. 15 and Sept. 16 that they, too, had seen no evidence of any protest before the attacks.
At the White House briefing on Sept. 18, Carney said that there was a protest in Benghazi on Sept. 11 against the anti-Muslim YouTube video and that the attacks there were "sparked" by protests. Obama, appearing on David Letterman’s show that same day, instantly referred to the video and called its maker a “shadowy character” when Letterman asked him what had happened in Benghazi.
Also, an internal State Department email exchange on Sept. 18--the same day Carney made his claim at the White House briefing and Obama made his on Letterman—shows that State Department security officers new by that date that there had been no protest in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
Oblamer's people died
then he lied and lied and lied some more.
Debunked by the Intelligence Committee Report. Try to keep up.

Democrats set up registration booths in Ferguson after the shooting. You made up all the rest.

They claim it's because blacks in that town are underrepresented in government and only 20% of them went out to vote in the last elections.

Couldn't they have done that all by themselves if they really wanted to participate in government? And wasn't that particular incident an inappropriate time to get voters to sign up as democrats?

Go back and look at the post moron.

I asked you what you were doing for the day.

I said I was going to the beach for "the day", which I did and arrived home at 10:30 or so.

You are a moron.

My employee is real and his salary was doubled. He is very happy.

What is your problem, lunatic?

I on the other hand, never said I had a book, the women love me or I was going on a "glorious" East Coast vacation.

News Flash: The Berlin Wall was not torn down under Reagan's presidency. Check your history book.

Reagan referred to the Contras as "the moral equivalent of our Founding Fathers" and he admitted to selling weapons. His only argument was that "the sale of weapons had not been an arms-for-hostages deal." The Tower Commission concluded that "Reagan's disengagement from the management of his White House had created conditions which made possible the diversion of funds to the Contras." The fact that they did not have enough evidence to link him directly to the diversion of funds is of little significance. Only 14 percent of Americans believed he was telling the truth.

As far as the trees go, only an idiot would attempt to lend support to Reagan's claim that "Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do."

I'll take Obama over a Alzheimer's sufferer like Reagan anyday. Kicking the mentally ill to the streets and granting amnesty to 3 million illegals is enough to support the claim that he left a terrible legacy.
