Here’s why I’m asking…

SecDef Chuck Hagel attended the funeral of the highest ranking active member of the military to be killed since 1970, Maj. Gen. Harold Greene. In 2012, nobody from the White House attended the San Francisco memorial service for Chris Stevens, who was the first U.S. ambassador in 30 years assassinated on the job.

To repeat: As far as I can tell, nobody from the White House — as in “a direct representative of the president who works at the White House” — attended either of those funerals.

With that in mind:

Three White House officials will attend Michael Brown’s funeral Monday on behalf of the Obama administration, a White House official told NBC News.

Assistant to the President and White House Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Marlon Marshall and Heather Foster, an advisor to the public engagement office will be at the ceremony for the unarmed teenager who was shot dead by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer on Aug. 9, sparking days of unrest in the St. Louis suburb.

Brown’s funeral will be at 10 a.m. local time at Friendly Temple Missionary Church in St. Louis.

Political priorities.

    There will be many Communists at the ceremony. What's three more?

    Well what do you expect, Amb Stevens and Gen Greene were not part of Eric Holder's people, Michael Brown very much was. Need I say more?

    Here is Andrew McCarthy's take on the racism within the DoJ.

    "Whatever the outcome, though, murder — including homicide caused by a policeman’s application of excessive force — is generally not a federal crime. It is a concern of *state law*." ( emphasis mine )

    And does one really need be an 'attorney' for this to be apparent. OBVIOUS even? Especially considering we're so EARLY in the process. Where's the case against the cop here, that he drove miles outside his jurisdiction from his normal all-white assigned patrol area!? Presumably to shoot the nearest black dude he could find! Randomly from his patrol car window..?

    OT but last night catching the BOC/BTO show down in Albany, OR ( they're starting to have better acts than many of the upscale venues btw ) some Lib-clown was running his mouth about how The Evil Koch Brothers deprived him of his employment after 23 years of loyal service at Georgia Pacific!

    You'd think anyone that's been around that ind. that long would know how highly *commoditized* it freaking IS? Everyone knows your cost basis ( see Philadelphia Paper Exchange for spot pricing ) and this sector is highly leveraged! Dude, get a clue ( even the chair you're sitting in is leased! )

    You could even say the KB's extended his employment BY the three years since their acquisition! Other than that, great show.

    Attorney General for some of the people…..

    It was my understanding that Sec. Hagel did not attend Gen. Greens funeral. Is that confirmed, I might have to correct a blog post.

    Good to see the National 'Science' Foundation's universal *beat down* for their comical abuse of grant money to police Twitter for "hate speech". Personally I thought the ruse more in alignment w/ "PolitiFact"/Snopes where cherry picking & semantics are the order of the day.

    Others likened it to Attack Watch! Beginning to think all this blather about "complex algorithms" is just THAT; total BS. Another condescending way to say "it's totally over your HEADS you rubes…"".

    I believe all that has ever taken place is your basic online surveillance where your email gets hacked, blog posts are tracked and identity gets JACKED. There's nothing magic going on, and certainly nothing that merits burning a million $ taxpayer-funded grant.

    Possible scenario; open to feedback:

    No doubt these are painfully DARK times; but what I believe I'm seeing shape up has an infinitely greater possibility of taking place than O'Drama's wet dream of an ISIS flag flying over the WH:

    Enough Dims becomes DEMS, throwing off the mind control act and getting BACK to their former mainstream! If not outright switching parties, certainly VOTING in kind and/or eschewing the label of rubber stamp. Waking up to the fact cr@pping on squad cars isn't a domestic policy and realizing O'Drama can't protect them 24/7 in their own districts.

    I think it is more likely that we could see the emergence of a third and possibly a fourth party. If this happens, I figure after a couple of election cycles the Dems and the GOP will cease to exist.

    The average dem is waking up to the fact that their party has been hijacked by the far left; yet they are not willing to join the GOP as the media has demonized the GOP while the GOP has done little to dissuade that image. This is why you have so many dems call themselves independents, they dont like either party.

  11. Truesoldier__ on August 26th, 2014 1:41 pm

    As for the GOP, this could be their last stand. If the GOP wins the Senate, Conservatives will expect them to act. If they choose either to continue to make excuses (i.e. go from we only control 1/2 of 1/3 to we only control 1/3) or if they continue to cozy up to the amnesty crowd (i.e. dear leader, Chamber of Crony Capitalism, La Raza, etc) then Conservatives will leave the party in droves. This could also happen if the GOP fails to win the Senate as it has pretty much been gift wrapped for the taking. If this happens, Conservatives will form their own party and as they start to win more and more elections (which could happen quicker if the dem party also fractures) you will see the GOP fade into history.

  12. Marshall_Will on August 26th, 2014 1:48 pm

    Agreed. Let The Great Fracturing BEGIN..! "Chamber of Crony Capitalism" ( SO stealing that! ) Lol

    Yeah, I mean, because they refused to bow to the will of the people, inflexible and totally entrenched/committed. Because there was never any substantive DEBATE over the obvious failings of the Electoral College system.., we'll just do it THIS way!

  13. Marshall_Will on August 26th, 2014 1:53 pm

    Larry Sabato talked about "where's the wave?" just yesterday on Drudge and it looks like ( and even he admits it's still early ) but GOP cand's don't appear to be pulling away from their Dim contenders in the polls or are just barely leading…

    Kind of like ROMNEY did all thru the Summer of 2012!? Personally, I believe we'll TAKE the Senate but as you noted above; probably a quick victory lap, kudos & congrats, then RIGHT back to biz as usual. Like Scott Brown, THEY in turn will get dumped and the REAL transformation can begin. Great analysis btw.

  14. Marshall_Will on August 26th, 2014 2:16 pm

    To follow on; it should be apparent that a mass defection among Dims is infinitely more imperative and many likely WOULD, except for those darned dark pools of Endless Cash their handlers keep dangling in front of them.

    I have no doubt virtually every Dim has expressed some to great levels of concern only to be told they're disposable/along for the ride/interchangeable. The same leverage used *against* them to pass O'Scare. But that only holds for so long…

  15. Truesoldier__ on August 26th, 2014 3:02 pm

    The "Chamber of Crony Capitalism" is Mark Levin's and I so stole that from him.

  16. Truesoldier__ on August 26th, 2014 3:07 pm

    So very true. I think the turning point is that many blue collar dems are feeling the impact of the lib economic policies and are none to happy. That enough is close to pushing them over the edge, but what I believe could be the true turning point is if dear leader goes through with his threat to legalize 5+ million illegals. The polling data on that front has been hovering right around 75% of all voters are not happy with the idea of having to compete for jobs with newly legalized illegals. Once the mass layoffs in favor of hiring newly legalized illegals at half the hourly wages (or having to take a massive pay cut to keep their job) occurs we could see the wave that Larry Sabato has pointed out is not there yet.
