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.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

The lawyer who claims that “when an IRS audit found that the tax collection agency had been targeting conservative political groups,” it was her “decision not to tell the president about the findings, in an attempt to shield Obama from charges he interfered in the investigation” is being replaced with a lawyer who is a veteran of the scandals in the Clinton White House, including Whitewater, and who represented him in the Monica Lewinsky investigation.

Maryland´s Attorney General Douglas Gansler accused his opponent, Iraqi war vet and Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, of not being capable of a ´real job´. Gansler and Brown are both fighting over the democrat nomination for Governor in Maryland, so this is a case of democrat on democrat violence. Gansler was speaking at a Tech Council of Maryland event when he unloaded the following comments about Brown: "I´m running against somebody who has never managed anybody, never run anything, his ads are about how he’s a lawyer in Iraq, and that’s all fine and good but this is a real job."

The 49-year-old had been to many doctors seeking help for ongoing issues that included joint pain and digestive problems. Now the Kirtland, Ohio, resident was hoping to find relief through herbal remedies. "Do you have something for inflammation?" Ms. Lunka asked herbalist Galina Roofener during a one-hour consultation. "Absolutely," responded Ms. Roofener. "This is for pain, for digestion, for inflammation, all of the above," she said, handing Ms. Lunka a bottle with capsules of an herbal combination called

She made the comments in response to a question from the co-hosts during the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, when they asked for a description of a typical Obama family Sunday, Breitbart reported.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is criticizing the Bureau of Land Management for apparently euthanizing an unknown number of cattle at the Bundy Ranch. “These animals shouldn´t be killed either by the government, or by the rancher who plans to send the cows off to slaughter. The best thing anyone can do to stop the suffering of animals is to go vegan,” PETA´s Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in a written statement to Breitbart News.

Portland, Ore., is a nice place to live. Nothing much happens there, and that’s its charm. Oregon is perhaps the most politically correct of the 50 states, shading even Massachusetts, and Reservoir 5 of the Portland water system is a monument to the work of the weenie bureaucrat. Portland is so straight-laced, in fact, that the daily newspaper refuses to identify the Washington Redskins as the Redskins, lest it offend the native redskins. Newspapers elsewhere, with no sensitivity, report bad news as well as the good — fires, floods, riots and even wars. Sensitivity reigns unchallenged on the banks of

The Garden State has the country´s highest percentage of foreclosures among mortgaged homes -- and that´s just the beginning. Early this year, banking and real-estate analysts concluded that New Jersey had achieved a dubious distinction, passing Florida to become the state with the highest percentage of foreclosure among mortgaged homes, 6.2 percent as calculated by CoreLogic, a leader in real-estate analytics. (That percentage was actually an improvement from a year earlier.) Meanwhile, Florida’s rate dropped to 6 percent from 10.1 percent in 2012, and housing markets around the country are recovering far faster from the Great Recession. New Jersey also

The best feast ever? A Florida fisherman caught a record-setting 805-pound shark earlier this month, and then celebrated by barbecuing the 11-foot mako and devouring it with friends. "It was really good," Joey Polk told the Daily News on Monday. "It´s not real fishy. It does not have a real gamy, fishy taste." Polk caught the mako off the Florida Panhandle with the help of two cousins. The feat is recognized by the International Land-Based Shark Fishing Association as the largest mako catch ever, he said.

The Supreme Court has upheld a ban on using race in admissions to Michigan´s public university. The court was divided on the case, which overturns a 6th Circuit Court decision. The opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, says the case is not about race admissions policies but about whether voters in a state can choose to prohibit consideration of racial preferences. "The plurality opinion stresses that the case is not about the constitutionality or the merits of race conscious admission policies in higher education. Rather, the question concerns whether and in what manner voters in a state may chose to

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
