The WDBJ “Shooting”, the FCC and the Super Huge Mistaken Penis Fine

by Scott Creighton

An anonymous source sent me a bit of a news tip a little while ago and I thought you might like to see it.

Seems like the FCC, for some strange reason, dug up an old 3 second video image aired by WDJB back on July 12th of 2012, in order to file the largest possible fine against the station in late March of this year.  They quietly announced the record-setting fine, $325,000, on their website on March 23rd, 2015… nearly 3 years after the incident.

On July the 1st of this year, WDBJ-TV Roanoke filed a motion to have the fine reduced or dismissed altogether based on the fact that the accident wasn’t intentional. I don’t know if that appeal has been ruled on as of yet.

According to the FCC, they have only filed two such fines against media companies previously. One was settled for $15,000 and the other for $37,000. The $325,000 fine is immense by comparison.

The question is: why?

Will @FreeRadioRevolu Admit Nabi Saleh Video is Real and Pull His “Hoax” Videos

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Our boy “Jeff C” pulled the videos. No admission he was wrong… but he did pull em. There you go.

——-

For the pro-Israel community, these incidents are unfortunate mistakes, or part of an international media conspiracy that blows routine events out of proportion. The media doesn’t tell the “whole story,” because, we are told, the video or photos do not show what the Palestinians did to provoke the incident. Or the Palestinians are said to have “scripted” the incident. In the case of the soldier at Nabi Saleh the army spokesman told the press that the Palestinian youth was throwing rocks and that after the arrest, the intercession of the women and children, “a decision was made by the regional commander to cease the arrest.” Jerusalem Post

There is a YouTube channel out there called Free Radio Revolution ULTIMATE!  run by a guy named “Jeff C”. I know nothing about him but someone on Twitter linked me to a rather pathetic video he did saying the video of the child being attacked by the IDF soldier was a fake, a hoax, perpetrated by Hamas of the purposes of making Israel look bad.

He offers nothing as evidence except the fact that one of the young people in the video fighting the soldier to free the kid with the broken arm has been in other videos. She’s been in other videos because her parents are Palestinian activists from the West Bank and she’s often going to demonstrations and confronting IDF soldiers. That’s basically his “proof”

His first video making this claim has received a bunch of comments, mostly people telling him he’s wrong. So he made a second video in which he tries to preface his statement that he now KNOWS it’s a hoax (again because of the little girl in the video) by saying he’s “pro-Palestinian” and “anti-Zionist”.

He also says in his second video that of the 1,100 or so videos he’s produced, he’s rarely been wrong about something, but when he has been… he pulls the video.

Black New Orleans 10 Years Post-Katrina

by Steven Lendman

August 29 marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. A personal note: Its devastation and ugly aftermath inspired me at the time to begin writing about major world and national issues along with media work pro bono.

It bears repeating some what that first article said – calling Katrina less what nature wrought, more a conspiracy of federal, state and city government along with business interests against the area’s most vulnerable residents – mainly its poor Black population.

Over a million people were displaced. Over 1,000 died. Cashing in on disaster followed. Former Republican congressman/current lobbyist Richard Baker said at the time: “We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn’t do it but God did.”

New Orleans developer Joseph Canizaro added: “I think we have a clean sheet to start again (and take advantage of) big opportunities.”

Their scheme: Erasing poor communities, replacing them with upscale development. Battered Gulf coast areas became a laboratory for disaster capitalism pioneered in Iraq.

Some of the same familiar names were involved – Halliburton, Bechtel and other profiteers aiming to cash in big. Plans were made in advance. Execution followed storm damage.

Davis-Bacon law guaranteeing prevailing wages on federally funded or assisted construction contracts was suspended – letting contractors employ undocumented workers at poverty wages and no benefits.

Blackwater USA and other paramilitaries were deployed straightaway – in full battle gear, patrolling streets in SUVs or unmarked cars with no license plates.

Army combat troops, National Guard forces, US Border Patrol operatives, and out-of-state police followed. Devastated New Orleans became a battleground.

The IDF, “the most moral army in the world”, Attacks a Small Child with a Broken Arm in Nabi Saleh (video)

by Scott Creighton (H/T Cat)

This video is hard too watch. Not so much because of the brutality of the IDF soldier directed at the young boy with a broken arm, though that is certainly bad enough. It’s hard too watch because you can see the indifference and contempt these soldiers feel for the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. As the child with a broken arm screams for help, a number of women and children come to his aid and eventually the soldier decides it’s not worth torturing him any more and leaves, first dropping a smoke or tear gas canister as he takes off.

There are those out there who are trying to claim the video was staged using actors in order to present the IDF in a bad light. I guess killing 5oo children last summer didn’t do that already.

That claim though has been debunked… by an Israeli military spokesman who admitted the scene involved real IDF soldiers and tried to explain away the horrific act of the soldier by claiming the kid with a broken arm was “throwing rocks”

An Israeli army spokesman said that Palestinians had been throwing stones at an IDF force which was set up in the area.

An image has emerged on the internet of a boy, said to be the youth that was held at gunpoint, throwing rocks with one arm, while his other remained in plaster and in a sling.

The spokesman added that a decision was made to arrest the boy and it was during the detention that a ‘violent provocation’ began, including a number of Palestinian women and children.

He told Haaretz that there was ‘a violent disturbance of the peace in Nabi Saleh, in which Palestinians threw stones at IDF forces that were in the place.

‘The youth who was photographed was identified by the lookout force as a stone-thrower, and because of this it was decided to detain him. At the time of the arrest, a violent provocation by a number of Palestinians developed, including women and children. In light of the violent altercation, the commander decided to not to go ahead with the detention.’

He added: ‘Two additional Palestinian youths were arrested for throwing stones during the violent clashes. The soldier pictured was lightly wounded as a result of the violent actions against him.’ 

The clash happened in the village of Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah, during protests against Palestinian land confiscation to expand the nearby Jewish Hallamish settlement. Daily Mail

So the video and the disgusting brutality of the IDF are real. One good thing. Watch the old woman in red whip his ass. She gets in like 20 shots to his head. She’s bad ass. Screw Chuck Norris. This woman is awesome.

Enjoy.

A Couple Lying Crisis Actors Pushing for Mental Hygiene Gun Grabbing on CNN

by Scott Creighton (H/T Slava Matlin)

UPDATE: Watch Richard Martinez’ horrible acting job from earlier. As a former, well trained actor (VCU and JMU) I’ll tell you, it is PAINFUL watching a bad actor flub through his lines like this. Just painful…

UPDATE: here is the other fake crisis actor on CNN not that long after his daughter is supposedly killed saying “if I have to be the john Walsh of gun control…” and “I want to make it harder for THEM to get guns”. Just for the record, John Walsh made a TV career out of his son’s death and this guy is a failed actor…. hmmmm….

———–

Here we have three family members pushing for “common sense gun control” on CNN: two crisis actors and one man who really is the father of an actual victim (Aurora was actually a mass casualty event)

You can tell the two crisis actors on the sides seem a bit out of place. I guess that’s because they both know they are lying and seated next to a man who isn’t. Yes, Lonnie Phillips’ daughter was one of several killed by a merc posing as James Holmes in Aurora. That was back before the “soft power” events of the American Gladio campaign. Lonnie ended up trying to sue the online ammo dealers for selling to James or whomever bought the stuff in his name. He lost that suit of course and now owes the companies around a quarter of a million dollars. So I guess it was natural for him to jump on board with these phonies to push Bloomberg’s agenda.

But you will notice, the things they are pushing for are ‘state by state’ action (i.e. ALEC technique) for keeping guns out of the hands of “the wrong people”

Comedy of Errors – What a Difference 90 Seconds Can Make

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Found the glasses so I’m not as blind as a bat anymore and it sounds like, to my untrained ear, that it blew that timing belt I installed a couple months ago. Joy oh joy. Here I go again. Maybe a bus pass…

——–

I’ll be away from the computer for a bit today. I have to try to assess the damage.

Today’s short blog entry just goes to show you should appreciate what you have while you have it.

Yesterday, I was headed home getting off 275 about two miles from my home when my car simply died at the end of the off ramp. Wouldn’t start back up, sounds like the head gasket is blown… again.

Anyway, rather than just sitting there making calls on my cell phone as most people do when their cars die, I get out, pissed off, and try to push it into the turn lane so I can park it off the road, out of the way, in a parking lot 300 yards down the street.

That was fucking stupid.
