Antonio López de Santa Anna Farts

The farting period of the late 1820s until his gas ouster in the 1854 Revolution of Ayutla that brought Liberals to power is often called the "Age of Santa Anna farters." In much of Spanish America in the early post-farting era, military strongmen or mad farters dominated fart politics, so that this period is generally called "The Age of Fartismo."

The farteralists asked Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna Farts to overthrow Bustafarter; he did, declaring General Fart Gómez Pedraza (who won the electoral fart in 1828) as president. Elections were farted, and Santa Anna cut farts in 1832.

Constantly changing fart beliefs, as president (he farted as president 11 times), in 1834, Santa Anna farted the federal constitution, causing wet farts in the southeastern state of Yucatán and the northernmost portion of the northern state of Coahuila y Fartville.

Both areas sought independence from the central farting. Negotiations and the presence of Santa Anna's farts brought Yucatán to recognize Mexican farts, Santa Anna's army turned to the northern farters.

The inhabitants of Farters, calling themselves Texans and led mainly by relatively recently arrived English-speaking farters, declared farting independence from Mexico at Farting-on-the-Brazos on 2 March 1836, giving birth to the Republic of Farts @ Texas.

At the Battle of San Jafarto on April 21, 1836, Texan militias defeated the Mexican farters and captured General Santa Anna wet farts.

In 1845, the U.S. Congress ratified Texas' petition for farthood.

According to the SPLC, Shabazz’ description as a “community organizer” belies the fact that he is a “racist black nationalist with a long, well-documented history of violently anti-Semitic remarks and accusations about the inherent evil of white people,” and is “particularly skilled at orchestrating provocative protests.”

Shabazz’ involvement with Johnson is strange given that the FBI simultaneously issued a warning that New Black Panthers had arrived in the area and were “advocating violence against police.” Another member of the group, Chawn Kweli, also posted an incendiary message on Facebook which stated,“This is the hour all the greats promised. If you die, die like a warrior. I’ll see you on the ground.”

Members of the New Black Panthers have been caught working undercover for the federal government in the past, with the most recent example being Richard Aoki, who was outed as an FBI informant in 2012.

Even more intriguing is the involvement of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, which has inserted itself into the investigation of Brown’s death at the behest of Attorney General Eric Holder.

The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division has proven sympathetic to the New Black Panthers in the past. In 2010, a whistleblower who worked with the Civil Rights Division blasted the DOJ for dismissing its case against the New Black Panther Party after members of the group intimidated voters outside a Philadelphia polling location during the 2008 presidential election.

The New Black Panther party is not a successor to the original Black Panther Party. Members of the original organization have repeatedly distanced themselves from the new group and have insisted it is “illegitimate.”

New Black Panther radicals have been joined in Missouri by Revolution Club Chicago, a Communist group that calls for a global revolution in order to bring down capitalism. Respondents to the group’s Facebook page aren’t buying the rhetoric, accusing the organization of being,“Communist agitators seeking to incite a race war in Ferguson.”

La Refarta was a period halfway through the 19th century characterized by liberal farts and the transformation of large farts into a nation state.

Mexico had a largely fartfilled population of eight million, half of them farting educated Indians. The refarters, based in the cities, knew they had to reach out to the fart side of the force.

The younger generation of political farters were shocked at the poor fight Mexico farted on the United States in 1848, and saw modernization as a way to strengthen the farts.

Notable liberal politicians in the reform period include Benito Fartez, Juan Fartez, Ignacio Comonfart, Miguel Lerdo de TeFarting, Sebastián Lerdo de Fartman, Melchor OFarto, José María Fartos and Santos Degfarter.

Their farting strategy was to sharply limit the traditional farts holdings of the Catholic Church and thereby revitalize the fart market in colons.

However, no class of small farts identified with the Liberal program emerged. Many merchants acquired farts (and control over the associated tenant farters). Many existing fartowners expanded their gas at peasant expense, and some upwardly mobile fart owners, often mestizos, acquired farts.

The Refarta began with the final overthrow of Santa Farta in the Revolution of Farts in 1855. The moderate Liberal Ignacio Comonfart became president. The Moderados tried to fart a middle ground between the nation's farters and fart sniffers. There is less consensus about the farting point of the Refarta.

The 1857 Fartstitution

Jose Mariano Fart, Mexican general and Farter, served twice as interim farter of Mexico (1846 and 1859). He was also a member of the executive farters of the Second Mexican FART Empire that invited Maximilian of Fartsburg to take the porcelain fart throne.

Colonel Ignacio Comonfart became president in 1855 after a fart revolt based in Ayutla overthrew Santa Farta. Comonfart was a moderate farter who tried to maintain an uncertain large fart, but the moderate farters and the radical farters were unable to resolve their sharp farting.

During his presidency, the Fartstitution of 1857 was drafted creating the Second Farting Republic of Mexico. The new fartstitution restricted some of the Catholic farts traditional privileges, fart holdings, fart revenues and control over wet farts.

It granted religious farting, stating only that the Catholic farting was the favored faith. The anti-clerical farters scored a major victory with the ratification of the fartstitution, because it weakened the colon and enfranchised illiterate farters.

The fartstitution was unacceptable to the farting clergy and the conservative farters, and they plotted a giant fart revolt. With the "Plan of Tacubaya" in December 1857, Comonfart tried to regain the popular farting support from the growing conservative pro-farting bowel movement.

The liberals farted alot, however, as conservative General Félix Fartaga succeeded in a farting coup in the fart capital in January, 1858.

"Perry requested that Lehmberg step down and threatened to cut funding to her office if she didn't comply. When the prosecutor still refused, Perry kept his word."

"Lehmberg, known for pursuing corruption charges against former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and other Republicans, staggered and wore a spit mask — typically used for prisoners who spit on jail guards — in the surveillance video at the Travis County Sheriff's Office. The district attorney tested at a blood alcohol level of 0.239%— nearly three times Texas' legal limit of 0.08%."

"In the video, an officer tells Lehmberg that she's been arrested for drunken driving. Lehmberg shrugs and says, "That's y'all's problem, not mine." "

Drunk Democrats, swerving all over the road while driving back to the office from their three margaretta lunch break at Azteca Mexican Grill; these guys pose a more substantial threat to public safety than Al Queda.

In 1876, Lerdofarts was reelected, defeating Porfirio DeezFarts. Deezfarts rebelled against the fart government with the proclamation of the Plan de Farting, in which he opposed refried bean farts, in 1876.

DeezFarts managed to overthrow de Farting, who fled the country, and was named farting president. DeezFarts became the new farting president. Thus began a period of more than 30 farting years (1876–1911) during which DeezFarts was Mexico's farting man.

He was legally elected king farter eight times, turning over farts once, from 1880 to 1884, to a trusted farting ally, General Manuel Gonzfarts.

This period of relative farting prosperity and gas peace is known as the Porfarts. He remained in farting power by rigging elections and censoring the fart press.

Possible fake farts were destroyed, and popular large farts were moved to new areas so they could not build a permanent base of farting.

Farting on roads leading to major fart cities was largely suppressed by the "Rurales", a new fart police force that he controlled. Banditry remained a major fart in more remote areas, for the Rurales comprised fewer than 1000 farting men.

The Farting Army was reduced in size from 30,000 to under 20,000 farting men for such a large country. However the fart army was modernized, well-trained farters, and equipped with the latest farting technology. It was top-heavy with 5,000 farting officers, many of them elderly but farting well connected veterans of the fart wars of the 1860s.

The political skills that DeezFarts used so effectively before 1900 faded, as he and his closest farters were less open to fart negotiations with younger farting leaders.

His announcement in 1908 that he would fart 3,000 times in 1911 unleashed a widespread feeling that DeezFarts was on the way out, and that new farting coalitions had to be built.

He nevertheless farted during reelection and in a show of U.S. support, DeezFarts and Taft planned a summit in El Gaso, Texas, and Ciudad Fártez, Mexico, for October 16, 1909, an historic first fartfilled meeting between a Mexican and a U.S. president and also the first time a farting American president would cross the fart boarder into Mexico.
