World War II veteran dies
after North Spokane attack

Spokane-Review [WA], by Katie Gillespie

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/22/2013 9:34:54 PM

An 88-year-old veteran is dead after he was attacked Wednesday night in North Spokane. The victim, Delbert Belton, was a World War II veteran living in Spokane, according to his family. Spokane Police said in a news release that they responded to a call of an assault at the Eagles Lodge, 6410 N. Lidgerwood. When they got there, they found Belton in his car with serious injuries to his head. He was taken to a local hospital where he died this morning from his injuries. Belton, who was called “Shorty,” by his friends, fought in the Battle of Okinawa in

Of all of the myriad of black on white crimes, this one enrages me the most. I want that skinny resident at 1600 Penn to say something fast. This is his doing. We are not going to sit back and take this forever.

Listened to Mark Levin tonight talking about this. He finished by playing all the military songs. I cried like a baby.

We live in a very sick world that those who have fought and /or died for us over the years will never be able to comprehend.

My sympathies to his family. The only good news is his wife and his God were waiting for him on the other side to welcome him home.

Thank you dear man for your service.

Seeing as how it was reported a couple days ago the DHS guy was promoting race-wars. It sure seems Civil Rights are being set back at least 50 years by the race allegedly being oppressed. It´s 2013! It´s not 1963 or even 1863.
My condolences to the family.
Thank you or your service and sacrifices sir.

Everyday I realize more and more the sad fact that I no longer recognize the USA.

Today we lost a Warrior to two animals that are the product of a society and culture that is running amok throughout America.

Thank you Mr. Belton for the your service and for your sacrifices. I am so very sorry that the country you defended and protected created and nurtured a cultural climate that in the end murdered you. May your soul have eternal peace.

I don´t think it was a crime. It doesn´t appear to be a crime to me. These acts, Duncan, Trayvon Martin (he was not the victim, he was the aggressor and would have been charged had he not been killed), Mr. Belton, and the many, many others we have been reading about over the last 4-5 years seem more in the nature of acts of war.
The media is aware of it, they just don´t report it because they are trying to keep a lid on it hoping it can be contained. The government is trying to contain it by treating it as a crime. Every act of war can be seen as a crime under definition of criminal law, you have to look at the surrounding circumstances. The race leaders, black panthers, black separatists, community organizers, have been filling their young people with hate for decades. It´s beginning to leak out.

What do you expect from Zero. He was raised by a wacko Marxist family. A mother who did all she could to screw up a son providing him with a transvestite nanny in Indonesia. His real father was likely a bisexual black communist....not named Obama. The icing on the cake was Jihad Jeremiah...that racist anti-American. Would you want that asshat to baptize your children? Obama is indeed the great divider and as close to the anti-Christ as I hope we will ever get. Zero is directly responsible for the decay of this country. Thanks you stupid voters.

Is Jesse Jackson going to "frown" upon this too? That was his strong statement about the gunning down of Christopher Lane. Somewhere, I hope that George Zimmerman is finding some peace as the hypocrisy of the race-mongers is revealed. Haven´t heard from Trayvon´s parents in awhile. Their 15 minutes has expired.

obama incited racial resentment, which has clearly escalated. I suspect an incident may spark riots in the street, e.g., an attack by a black mob, who are literally outgunned. Jaws are set. Tensions are approaching the breaking point. Grab a tight rein.

Too bad he couldn´t have pulled a 45 on these urban savages. They deserve to be shot down in the street like vermin. Is this what America has spent trillions of tax dollars for? America would have achieved so much more if not for so much of it´s energy and treasure being diverted to feed, house and incarcerate almost 80% of African-Americans. Without them there would have been no Civil War and an Australian athlete and Delbert Belton would still be alive.

What would have happened if Belton somehow pulled a legally obtained gun and shot his attackers in self-defense (he WAS murdered)? Obama would remain silent. Sharpton would organize a march for a vigil for these SOB gang-punks. Liberal media would parade racists to condemn Belton for taking the lives of innocent children like innocent Travon. They would pronounce him as suffering from dementia and anti-gun morons would start whining about how someone with Alzheimers could get a gun. Obama has intentionally divided America for his own political advantage. These murderers are ignorant drones ... tools of the black-as-victims race industry. Americans, you´d better wake up to the new Black Offensive against whitey ... you could be next

As for their getting the message within a generation or two, that´s about 30 years too long.

This story almost brought me to tears. He faced enemy soldiers with guns on the other side of the world and managed to survive it. It took two thugs from his own country to take his life over something trivial like a few bucks, or even that the two creeps were "bored" and wanted to rough up a white guy.

This really touches me because my grandfather, a Marine, was also wounded on Okinawa. The two of them could have been transported to safety on the same ship, for all I know. My grandfather has been gone for many years, but the thought of him being victimized by two pieces of garbage like the ones who killed Mr. Belton is just too difficult to imagine.

Liberal democrats, you have taken fathers, consequences, faith and ambition away from our young people. You own this mess we´re in.

No, we´re not going to sit back and take this, not those of us with a clue. I have "protection" in my car, not a gun, but I pity the poor fool that tries to carjack me or otherwise assault. I recognize danger when I see it and I AM looking for threats as I go about my business.

Amongst other negative qualities, these animals are cowards, they tend to run in packs, even to attack a feeble old man. They are motivated by nothing but hatred while I am motivated by my love of life.

I predict that those of us defending ourselves will prevail in most cases and these miscreants will start dropping like flies. Sadly, some of us will be prosecuted for defending our lives as was George Zimmerman. Still it´s true, better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

´Do you fancy jumping in the back?´ These were Prince William´s smooth words to Kate as the pair inspected the Super Hornets at Amberley Air Base shortly after touching down in Brisbane this morning. The pair is touring No 1 Squadron at the base - which is the first Super Hornet squadron outside the US. It´s a plane William won´t have flown himself in the UK - but he wasted no time stepping into the flight seat, while Kate watched on. He then stepped into the back seat - where the weapons are controlled, allowing Kate to take the pilot´s

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
