Derrick Jordan grabbed an AR-15 rifle from a pickup truck parked near the entrance of a Conoco gas station and convenience store.

He and four other black Ferguson residents spent Tuesday night guarding the white-owned business from would be looters and shoplifters.

We would have been burned to the ground many times over if it weren’t for them,” said gas station Doug Merello, whose family has owned the business for thirty years

Jordan and his friends were joined on Tuesday night by other armed men from the neighborhood. The men weren’t paid to be there. They said they owed it to Merello, who has employed many of them over the years and treats them with respect.

“He’s a nice dude, [sic] he’s helped us a lot,” said 29-year-old R.J.

Missouri lawmakers recently passed a law overriding local ordinances that banned the open carry of firearms by people who have concealed-weapons permits.

Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis exposed her former employer CNBC for being a propaganda arm for Obama and his Bread and Circuses Administration.

Francis said CNBC “silenced” her for questioning the “math of Obamacare” on air.

“[W]hen I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of ObamaCare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced.

I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else. I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it. That was a lie. And in fact, millions of people had their plans canceled,” Francis said.

After her comments aired, Francis said that CNBC management summoned her to a meeting and admonished her for “disrespecting the office of the president.”

Francis went on to say that NBC, ABC, the Associated Press, and the Los Angeles Times were also guilty of suppressing the truth from the American people.

Dying Man Reunited with Beloved Dog Makes Complete Turnaround

By Jerry A. Kane

James Wathen, a terminally-ill patient at Baptist Health Corbin in Corbin, Kentucky, had stopped eating and had become weak and frail. His condition kept deteriorating, and he was barely able to talk. Wathen managed to whisper to a nurse his wish to see his dog, Bubba, just one more time. The 73-year-old hadn’t seen his one-eyed Chihuahua with no bottom teeth since he arrived by ambulance at the Whitley County hospital six weeks earlier.

“One of our social workers realized it was mourning the loss of the dog that was making our patient even worse and emotionally unhealthy, we pulled out all the stops and found the dog,” said Kimberly Probus, Chief Nursing Officer at Baptist Health Corbin

When time is of the essence, administrative policies can be cumbersome and time-consuming, so it’s often easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. So a group of nurses decided to track down Bubba and arrange a reunion with Wathen, even though the hospital had a rule against pets.

After a series of phone calls, the nurses found out that Bubba had been turned over to the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter and then subsequently placed in a foster home because of his age. The nurses discovered that Bubba had also recently fallen ill. He too had stopped eating about a week before they made contact with the shelter to arrange the reunion.

“The dog quit eating a week ago, which is very strange. The dog didn’t know where James was and James didn’t know where the dog was and believe it or not, they both stopped eating at about the same time,” said Mary-Ann Smyth, Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter President

The nurses arranged for the shelter to bring Bubba to the hospital Saturday, October 11.

“He was so sad at first. We had him wrapped in a baby blanket and he was shivering. The minute we got about 20 steps from this guy’s room — I kid you not — his little head went up. His eyes got real bright and he was like a different dog,” Smyth said.

Bubba’s mood changed immediately upon seeing Wathen, and Wathen began crying when he saw Bubba.

They didn’t think James was going to make it. I was 10 feet from his bed and you could barely understand him because he was so hard to hear. The nurse had to lean up right against his face to hear what he was saying,” Smyth said.

During their 30-minute reunion, Wathen gradually began to improve. He slowly perked up and his mood changed significantly as he petted and played with Bubba on his bed.

“When Bubba was handed to James he started to cry and then Bubba started to snuggle James and it makes you realize that animals are not just pets they are loved ones,” wrote Deanna Myers, Knox Whitley Animal Shelter Director, on her Facebook page.

The impact of the reunion was readily apparent. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the room,” Probus said.

“To see those two. To see James and Bubba get back together. It was heartwarming. It’s why we do what we do,” Smyth said.

The visit seemed to do wonders for Wathen. Nurses reported the next day that he seemed like a new person. When Bubba returned for a second visit on Tuesday, Wathen’s turnaround was complete. He was now sitting up and eating.

“Both are so happy to see each other and both seem to be doing better! The power of love can go along way!” the shelter posted on its Facebook page

Seeing the positive impact Bubba has had on Wathen, Baptist Health Corbin is revising its pet visitation policy to ensure Bubba will have visitation privileges.

“I hope this story will show to people the tremendous difference that animals can make in people’s lives,” Smyth said.

Hospital administrators are working to implement a pet visitation policy for similar situations now that they’ve witnessed first hand the healing power pets provide their owners.

Elbert Guillory’s Free At Last PAC has released a powerful ad criticizing Democrat senator Mary Landrieu for her failure to help black people in Louisiana.

“Since 1996 [when Landrieu took office], black unemployment has doubled and the poverty rate for blacks has skyrocketed.”—Elbert Guillory, Louisiana state senator

Guillory, a longtime Democrat who switched to the Republican Party last year, is urging black voters to stop voting for politicians like Landrieu who care more about staying in power than they do about helping them.

“You are not Mary’s cause and you are certainly not her charity. You are just a vote – nothing less, nothing more. You are just a means to an end, so that she remains in power.”—Elbert Guillory

Guillory’s “Mary Landrieu is Not Helping Blacks” video also has a national appeal to it because it speaks to all Americans, especially black Americans who live in large urban areas.

The Democrat Party machine has controlled inner-city politics and black voters long enough.

“You see, in recent history, the Democrat party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people.”— Elbert Guillory

It’s time black Americans break free of the mindset that binds them to the Democrat Party plantation and reclaim their God-given inalienable rights once again.

“The Democrats have been in Washington D.C. only because of the Negro vote. … You put them first, and they put you last, ’cause you’re a chump, a political chump. … Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you’re dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party, you’re not only a chump, but you’re a traitor to your race.”—Malcolm X, from “The Ballot or the Bullet” speech, 1964

It’s actually pretty simple when you think about it. The Democrat Party must shrink the middle class to create more poor people or it must import poorer people from neighboring countries in order to grow its core constituency and remain in power.

Okay chump, the choice yours. You either live free or vote Democrat. It’s really that simple.

The truth is leftists aren’t always stark raving mad. Once in a blue moon a leftist will have a brief moment of clarity and will say something that is both rational and true.

Recently, Bill Maher had such a moment on the Charlie Rose Show when he said that people who claim Islam is like other religions are naive and plain wrong. And back in 2009, CBS’s Late Night host David Letterman had his brief moment of clarity during an exchange with Bill O’Reilly.

In the back and forth, Letterman quoted from a New York Times feature on Glenn Beck where he had said, “if you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.”

With the meekness and charm of a Vogue magazine editor, Letterman then said that O’Reilly was too smart to actually believe those populist, conservative views that he espouses to the folks.

“I think Glenn Beck, and maybe he got caught up in the moment of candor, but I think he speaks to this. I think you guys [O’Reilly, Beck, and Rush Limbaugh] know exactly what you’re doin’. You’ve been very successful at it, but the truth of it is you’re not speaking your conscience,” Letterman said.

“We’re charlatans is what you’re saying?” O’Reilly asked.

“It’s not charlatan; it’s show business,” Letterman said. … “This is why wrestling is popular,” he added.

This brief exchange between Letterman and O’Reilly is telling. Between the lines Letterman is saying that O’Reilly and the others have adopted personas, and that the majority of the people who listen to them do not know that. He also knows that many people have been conditioned by the media to adore these personas and to clap like trained seals when they’re around them.

Letterman is saying that the people who listen to talk show hosts believe that their personas reflect who they truly are in real life. Letterman is saying that when they’re not hosting a show or in the public eye, they may hold opinions and beliefs that actually contradict those they express on their shows.

O’Reilly, Beck, and Limbaugh know their niche audience, and they created personas to reflect the values, beliefs, and ideals of that audience. If they actually held the principles and convictions they espouse on their shows, they’d be working feverously to save this country from destruction instead of lining their pockets.

For the uninitiated, David Letterman exposed the underbelly of the beast, and the beast is show business. Like it or not, talk show hosts are entertainers in the entertainment industry and are not principled patriots whose love of country supersedes their self interest.

The following lyrics are meant to be sung to the tune of The Byrds’ “Drug Store Truck Drivin’ Man“:

They’re America’s friend, they talk on week days

But they sure do think different from the words that they say.

They’re political commentators who pine for this land

And why they’re successful, I can’t understand


This 17:29 clip is from The Millstone Report web cast that aired April 11, 2014, on the Resistance Radio Network.
