Five Rams players took the field on Sunday with their hands up – like protesters in Ferguson.
Sports Illustrated reported:
Five St. Louis Rams players took the field for Sunday’s home game against the Oakland Raiders with a “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” pose that has been used by protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country recently.
The five players who were shown doing the gesture on CBS were Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Chris Givens and Kenny Britt.
“I use it proudly and I use it often.”
“I sure love my Race Card! It comes in handy whenever I find myself in a mess I’ve made. I just bring it out and ‘voila’, the mess is overlooked. In fact, there’s no limit on how many times I can use it! I highly recommend the Race Card. Don’t leave home without it.” BHO

ISIS fighters in Syria post tweets declaring support for Ferguson rioters
Urge protesters to embrace Islam and carry out acts of extreme violence
Uploaded hand-written note vowing to send militants to the Missouri city
But said rioters must first declare their allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
By JOHN HALL FOR MAILONLINE
British jihadis fighting for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq have pledged to send militants to fight police in the riot-hit American city of Ferguson, Missouri – providing the protesters embrace Islam.
The city has seen widespread disorder after a police officer escaped punishment for shooting dead an unarmed black teenager, and now the Islamic extremists are attempting to take advantage of the anti-authoritarian feeling to convince those involved to adopt ISIS’ radical ideology.
Using the slogan ‘From #IS 2 Ferguson’, Birmingham-born jihadi Junaid Hussain, 20 – who has adopted the nom de guerre Abu Hussain al-Britani – this morning tweeted a photograph of a hand-written letter urging the Ferguson rioters to ‘reject corrupt man-made laws like democracy’ and declare their allegiance to ISIS’ leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

This is a bot late, but this is for those “peaceful” protesters in Ferguson. There is a reason for many stereotypes. The Michael Brown decision was merely an excuse for looting and burning. Civilized people do not react like barbarian savages which is what we have been seeing in Ferguson. Welcome to the Third World.
DON’T MISS THIS ONE!
Sheriff Clarke speaks to the National Press Club about how disgusted he is with Eric Holder and his brother Al Sharpton.
Send to all of our Law Enforcement brothers and supporters of police officers everywhere. Post on all social media too since Holder is a catalyst for the violence in Ferguson and elsewhere. Screw Holder & Obama they have done NOTHING to help keep peace in Ferguson….By Holder’s own admission he feels the Grand Jury in Ferguson didn’t do their job to his racist satisfaction so he’s going to use the Federal Government AND the tax payers money to order his own investigation to see that this fine officer who was doing nothing more that defending himself…..Papa Mike
The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama.
In an overwhelming 35-10 vote, the state Senate advanced a bill naming a 650-acre site currently under construction after the nation’s 44th president. Governor Jack Dalrymple is expected to sign the measure into law Tuesday.
When completed, the Barack Obama Memorial Landfill will be the largest waste disposal site in North Dakota, and the 17th largest in the United States. It will be especially rich in toxic waste from the local petroleum and medical industries.
“We wanted to do something to honor the president,” says Republican State Senator Doug Perlman, who was the lead sponsor of the bill. “And I think a pile of garbage is a fitting tribute to Obama’s presidency.
“We originally planned on naming it after a nearby mountain. But then someone jokingly suggested we name it after Obama. I never thought and idea like that would actually pass. But I was pleasantly surprised.”
The president is hardly popular in North Dakota. The most recent poll in December 2013 found that Obama has a 35% approval rating in the state, although that figure may have fallen further in the year since. Yet even considering the political climate, seasoned observers are surprised that two Democratic lawmakers voted for the bill’s passage.
“I supported Obama because I thought he would end the wars in the Middle East;” says Allison Mitchell, a progressive Democrat from Grand Forks. “But he decided to fight new wars abroad instead of fighting for single-payer health care and jobs here at home.
“I guess people expected me to oppose this landfill thing because I’m a Democrat. But honestly I don’t really care anymore. Maybe this small act of protest will wake him up.”
Ordinary citizens in the state also seem to approve of the government’s choice.
“I can’t think of a better name,” says Joe Blough, a plumber from Minot. “It’s darkly colored and it’s full of shit. That pretty much sums up Obama.”
FERGUSON, Mo. — Ferguson’s mayor on Tuesday criticized what he said was delayed National Guard deployment as violent protests broke out following the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.
Ferguson Mayor James Knowles called the decision to delay the deployment “deeply concerning” after several businesses were burned down or damaged during the protests.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, who called the scene in Ferguson “heart-breaking” and “unacceptable,” ordered more than 2,200 members of the National Guard to the area. He said 700 guardsmen were in the area on Monday night, when more than a dozen buildings were set on fire and otherwise vandalized.

Late Monday nifht Ferguson Mayor James Knowles told FOX 2 anchors late on Monday night that he had repeatedly requested the National Guard Monday night… But his requests were ignored.
“I know I’ve been on the phone in contact with the County Executive’s Office. I know he has requested. I am requesting. I’ve requested the National Guard troops to come out from their command post to help restore order along the business district. We have not seen that… Those calls have gone unheeded at this point… We need to have the governor step up and give us the resources that he’s promised from the beginning. He said he would have a strong response. The resources necessary would be provided. They have not been provided so far.“
THIS WILL BE THE END OF JAY NIXON’S POLITICAL CAREER. Absolute Dereliction of Duty!
This afternoon Governor Jay Nixon said he will finally deploy the National Guard to Ferguson — after dozens of businesses were vandalized, looted and burned to the ground.
Governor Nixon told reporters today that he sent “some” National Guard troops to Ferguson “late” last night.
A reporter on the scene says the National Guard never made it to West Florissant during the mass rioting.
The reporter says the group he was with NEVER SAW THE NATIONAL GUARD ALL NIGHT IN FERGUSON!
