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
Comments: This is the local coverage, with a bit more info, photos.
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.
I put the blame squarely at the occupant at 1600 PA - this is ALL his doing - this is ALL his divisive talk and of course let´s not forget Al and his pal Jesse - absolutely disgusting and appalling words can´t say what I am thinking about this punks - just following the marching orders ???
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. God bless you!
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.
I live in Spokane. If this can happen here it can happen anywhere. This is not the first black on white crime here. Be careful, something is going on and it will not always be reported except on Drudge and here.
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
So, this time they did not use a gun. Anyone hear Michell malkin´s argument with that screwball Richard Fowler? 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?
I don´t care if they are black, white, red, yellow, brown or green, charge the parents. Both of them. It might take a generation or two, but they will get the message. Take care of your children or face the consequences. By the way, Obama has set race relations back 60 years. On purpose.
Hey, we´re getting fed up with the black on white murderous assaults, especially those targeting babies and the elderly! And NBC, you´re complicit in this for doctoring the Zimmerman 911 tapes and so is Obama. You´ve all got blood on your hands.
I hope these punks pay dearly for this crime. By the way, I carry a .45...target me next time!
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.
Yes, No. 28, I heard that so called debate. That African American nut would not shut up and let Michelle Malkin talk. Like all liberals he used the technique of talking non stop, over his opponent, so the opponent could not be heard or get a word in edgewise.
I am sickened that two black thugs in do rags murdered a Veteran who fought for their rights. And I am sickened that thousands of American Veterans died so that two black thugs in do rags can live in freedom.
Those responsible need to come forward and take their punishment. You are included Mr. President.
CHICAGO-- Chicago will soon host a sculpture that’s both inspired and angered viewers around the world, reports CBS Chicago. CBS affiliate station WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports “Homeless Jesus” will be installed Friday outside the Chicago offices of Catholic Charities. Canadian sculptor Tim Schmalz said Pope Francis has blessed the statue, but two cathedrals have rejected his bronze image of Jesus on a park bench. “Imagine a life-sized figure totally wrapped up in a blanket, or a sleeping bag, with the only thing visible the feet of the figure,” he said. “If you look in the feet, you actually see
Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received a lot of hate since missing three field goal attempts in his team’s stunning loss to Auburn, but he has at least one fan: former President George W. Bush. The 43rd president reportedly sent Foster a personalized letter encouraging him to press on through life’s challenges. “Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks. I know! However, you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely, another 43, George Bush,” the letter reads. Foster posted a picture of the letter to his Twitter account Wednesday. Foster was inundated with
The Hollywood Reporter gathered some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast to honor the Power 100 and present Oprah Winfrey with a leadership award named for former Paramount and 20th Century Fox exec Sherry Lansing. Lansing took the stage at the packed event, sponsored by Lifetime, Gucci, Samsung Galaxy, Audi, Roberto Coin, Guggenheim, City National Bank, the Gersh Agency, Loyola Marymount University and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, to speak about Winfrey, whom she called one of her personal idols. "You conduct your life in
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to nominate Stanley Fischer to be the next vice chairman of the Federal Reserve. The former Bank of Israel Chief would take over for Janet Yellen when she leaves the post to become Fed chairwoman. Fischer, a dual-citizen of the U.S. and Israel, served as the head of Israel’s central bank for eight-years before stepping down on June 30 of this year. Later this summer, the economist sung the Fed’s praises on the Charlie Rose Show. “The United States managed — although it is hard for Americans to believe — managed the crisis better than
Walking out of a private conference room beneath the Capitol Building on Tuesday, Republican House members looked tired. Not the typical "I-had-a-bad-night’s-sleep" tired but something deeper — a look of battle exhaustion. Unlike past meetings in the same place during periods of fever-pitched warfare with Democrats, it appeared — for the first time in a long time — the fire in their bellies that drove them to shut down the government and risk federal default, was, for now, no longer evident. These Republicans had just been briefed on a new, bipartisan budget blueprint that would establish long-term federal government spending
MIAMI- George Zimmerman will not face domestic violence charges because his girlfriend did not wish to pursue the case and there was scant evidence of a crime, a state prosecutor said Wednesday. Samantha Scheibe´s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence would have made the case difficult to prove, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement. "There is no reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution," Archer said. Zimmerman, 30, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 confrontation at the central Florida house he shared with
In a contentious exchange with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over her repeated claims that mandated health services do not raise costs for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) waved his hand in apparent surrender and said to her, “It’s like talking to the Republic of Korea or something.” Shimkus apparently was referring to North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the Communist rulers there spout pro-government propaganda that is then glowingly reported by state-run media.(Video)
"The journalistic bond between The Post and MSNBC just grew a bit stronger, as the paper’s opinion section announced that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will be writing a monthly column." So began Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple´s announcement Wednesday concerning the addition of the perilously liberal Maddow to the Post opinion page.Honestly, if you were the Post, would you want your relationship with the so-called "news network" considered by most to be the biggest farce in journalism to grow stronger? After the high profile dismissal of Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir, is this really the time to be adding
Christmas miracle or sickly sweet PR stunt? Either way, it´s unlikely these WestJet passengers care after they had their wildest holiday wishes granted during a flight across Canada. Travelers pitching up at Toronto Pearson and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airports for flights to Calgary were surprised when a virtual Santa Claus asked what they wanted for Christmas. A promo video sees a variety of passengers telling Father Christmas their dream gift.With their wishes made, the footage shows them merrily taking their place on the aircrafts.
Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography. The Republican Senator from Tennessee revealed Wednesday that law enforcement officers are searching Loskarn´s private residence. “I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” the Senator said. Alexander, 73, made the announcement on Wednesday, indicating he "was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office" of the search. The staffer has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
RENO, Nevada- A couple and four young children missing in frigid weather since they went on an outing to play in the snow on Sunday were found alive in a remote mountain range in Nevada on Tuesday huddled in their overturned vehicle, a sheriff´s dispatch supervisor said. The couple had taken their two children and the woman´s niece and nephew, who range in age from 3 to 10, to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range of northwestern Nevada, Pershing County dispatch supervisor Sheila Reitz said. The six were found in good condition and were treated for exposure
The troubled son of a church pastor who is a spiritual advisor to Barack Obama has died in an apparent suicide. Father-of-three Isaac Hunter, 36, had been battling problems since resigning from a Florida megachurch he founded after admitting to an affair with a staff member last year. A judge also granted his wife a domestic-violence petition after claiming his erratic behavior and alcohol abuse had left her ´fearing for my life and the lives of our three children.´ According to court documents, Hunter had written an undated suicide note saying: ´I have become what I never wished to be,
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
