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.

I agree with #1. 0bama has encouraged young black men to hate whites. He has been pounding the wedge between the races. He is a racist and we are seeing the effects of his actions.

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

Fowler mad at guns instead of the black thugs who gunned down that Aussie baseball player. Now, what they gonna blame? Beating an old man to death? Jesus H. Keerist! When are these feral beasties going to start to get tamed? Are we really in a race war on top of a religous war?

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.

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force. "People are in that head-space and in that heart-space. It´s that time of the year where people are much more reflective and much more open to connecting with

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

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

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
