Pundits Pin Blame For Murderer
Jovan Belcher On Everything But Him

Daily Beast, by Buzz Bissinger

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/5/2012 5:00:25 AM

I hear the swell and crescendo of violin strings. I smell the stench of the concussionista conspiracists trying to make a murderer who subsequently committed suicide into the newest poster boy for pro-football players who commit acts of violence because of head injuries. It’s a 24-hour journalism cycle now. The web is stuffed with idle innuendo, stories that pose ominous questions to whet reader appetite but never answer them because there are no facts to answer them. Victims are hot, even one who kills a woman friend with nine bullets, then kills himself to leave their three-month-old-daughter an orphan.

Well, we know for a fact that the US voters who chose the Trillionaire on 6 November did so because of a series of concussions they suffered.
Right? Right?

How can we blame the killer.

His mama said she heard him say.......

You can´t talk to me like that!

Isn´t that reason enough to murder someone?

This baby needs to be removed far far way from the Belcher family.

This event is a symptom of a much larger problem. Blacks make up about 17% of the population; they commit 85-90% of the crimes (can we say Chicago), black males fill up the prisons, the nuclear black family...mother father and kids living under the same roof as a family and employed...is a very small % of the black population, single mothers giving birth...70%+, and on and on.

This is never discussed ever in the media. The facts are there to support a detailed examination of the black culture but it is never done. Can we all say dysfunctional!!!! Rather than point out the glaringly obvious, it is "whitey´s fault", "can´t get no jobs...of course they can´t no jobs because they aren´t educated enough to get one (black males)", "we needs a jobs program specifically for black males...and I ask, what types of jobs would that be when most can´t read, write or do basic math."

And so we have another sad story...Belcher....he is guilty of murder. He was on his way to prison or a grave anyhow. The NFL was just a stopping place before one of those two occurred. One more story in a very long book of a dysfunctional culture. The percentages don´t lie.

If the media is going to point fingers they begin by looking in the mirror. Media attention drives fan adulation and huge salaries, all which has contributed to a culture in which star athletes start to believe none of the rules of civil behavior apply to them.

This was the common thinking back when I was a kid in NYC. It was so wrong headed and, for this white kid trying to grow into manhood in NYC and having half the adults taking the side of the street thugs ("well, it isn´t right that you get mugged or threatened everyday that you walk the streets but these kids come from bad circumstances...blah blah blah," in the meantime, my circumstances were just as bad but because I was white, it didn´t count) I was hoping that the Guiliani era (along with others who emulate Rudy) would have put an end to it. No such luck. The country is gone. America is over. I´m just going to take care of me and my family now.

Todd Schnitt´s radio talk show had an interesting caller yesterday. He was the father of a boy who had been bullied incessantly by Jovan Belcher to the point the family finally moved from NY. Father said the son would go to the store and Belcher and his homies would wait for him outside the store and beat him up. He also got it going to and/or from school. They stole his bike. I bet he will not be missed by anyone other than the thug type.

No one cares about the real victim--the woman he killed. And on top of everything else, he was a coward, who was afraid to face up to the punishment he deserved. Something tells me, however, that he is finding a much worse punishment now.

This is about the NFL itself, guys. If it can be either proven or even strongly supported scientifically that this could be the result of head trauma, any number of current and pending lawsuits by ex-players are going to be greatly strengthened. This is the reason for those awful ads they have been running during games, showing all the efforts they are making to keep players of all ages "safe." ESPN spent the first day pretending this was a car wreck as opposed to a murder, knowing damned good and well where their bread is buttered.

These uncontrolled rage murders are a part of black culture in America today, they happen all the time in the big cities, but the liberal media will not address these issues in an in-dept and honest way due to runaway political correctness.

You can forget about any black person who writes opinion pieces, who is a media commentator, or elsewhere appears in the entertainment industry to ever criticize another black person for any serious crime that a black person perpetrated, all you hear from them is oblique blame and excuses aimed elsewhere, that never hold the black perpetrator personally responsible for his or her own criminal actions. As long as absolute denial of fact like that continues, the social and criminal issues that the black communities face will only get worse.

Re. #7:

It is because blacks are being used by the democrats. The left doesn´t give a hoot about black people, beyond their usefulness in politics. They just keep giving them things, using tax dollars, so they will keep voting democrat. They also have been trained to respond to the racial issue by giving in to their emotions, instead of thinking about things and understanding the truth. The democrats have cast themselves as the saviors of blacks from the racist Republicans. It really doesn´t take much thinking and observing to see the lies, but the lies has been introduced into the black culture by democrats. We have seen what happens to black people who go against the black dogma....

There must be a whole lot of young black men with concussions and guns in Chicago ..and Detroit and Oakland..etc.
If an NFL player had been in the consulate at Benghazi ,
perhaps the murders of Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith ,
Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty might have gotten
a fraction of the media attention
they have now given to a murderer over the past five days.
Belcher had at least two girlfriends , one illegitimate child
and was in counseling provided by the Chiefs.
Before she knew that he had killed himself , his mother gave a timeline and alibi to the police , which no longer holds up- she may have been trying to give him
an excuse when his case came to trial.
He was reported to be taking pain killers ( which would be contraindicated with a head injury ) and abusing alcohol.
Was he also taking steroids ? If the toxicology report has any
negatives in it, expect it to get the same coverage as Benghazi.
None.

Generally a pretty solid column. Not worth noting a few specific bits of disagreement here. Good job, Mr. B. I will note, though, that the monster, Belcher, apparently had rather more of a history than this column mentions. I say this not as criticism, but to inform those who may not have been aware of that part of the background.

Also, the N.O. Saints injury-bounty criminality was really never addressed in the general media, and certainly not among the sports boffins. It was all about whether it was "really that organized," and how many games the coach should be suspended for.

NFL owners and the broadcasters had better realize that the immortal Golden Goose has yet to be hatched. Theirs is mortal, like all the rest. Keep bringing in thugs, keep making excuses, never hold them responsible -- know what pate´ is, guys? Do ya?

Oh -- all that preening and prancing on the field after nearly every play needs to be penalized and stopped. Ya made a tackle? Big whoop. Got any idea how many tackles have been made in the league before you get here, Big Shot?

#2: Hmmm. Could be you have the best answer yet.

#5: And will next time, too!

#7: Specifically on the unemployment issue -- would anyone determining the factors for a pool of applicants want: a. proximate or actual illiteracy; b. innumeracy; c. poor spoken-language skills; d. "attitude"; e. high probability of a past criminal record; f. "attitude"; g. high probability of a future criminal record; h. "attitude"; i. unreliability; j. poor past job performance; k. "attitude"?

#10: #9 is sarcasm.

#21: Can´t blame "our society." It´s not monolithic. That´s like blaming concussions. Plenty of posters right here blame the guilty party.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there.

North Carolina answers Democrats’
question ‘What vote fraud?

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country."

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it.
