Portland, Oregon: Media and Cops Cover Up Black Mob Attack of Convenience Store Clerk
I saw a news report yesterday evening that had more details to this story.
What happened was: A group of "people" tried to pass a bad check as a convenience store. The clerk refused to accept it. They left and came back with a gun and forced the clerk to apologize. He apologized and they viciously beat him anyways.
The below link refers to this story but offers no details. The TV news reports I saw last night gave no description of the perps. Just looking at the details of what happened I can guess at the "description". I will bet anyone any amount of money I'm right.
It says in this newspaper item that the police have released no details, though there were more details on the TV news report, of course the reporters were on the spot interviewing the clerk but they didn't ask him to describe the attackers. I'm not sure what's going on here but when the news and police are being shifty about details like this it always involves black perps.
You have violent attackers with a gun running around and our "boys in blue" and "watchdog media" are more concerned with protecting the sacred cow of racial political correctness than public safety. It's like a broken record, happens over and over.
P.S. Because the store was called Jesusito Market, the victim was likely Hispanic. And here's the story

Thanks, Everton Bailey Jr. You whited out the gun, the mob, and the descriptions. Why bother “reporting” at all? This is the journalistic equivalent of a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich without the bacon, lettuce, or tomato. There's just two slices of bread, and not even any mayo. My reader gave me more meat than you did!
I guess that gives you something to brag about, at the next National Association of Black Journalists convention!
Skeptical readers, take note: In Volunteer Slavery, Jill Nelson’s account of her travails as an overpaid, privileged, affirmative action writer at the Washington Post, working for “white boys” like Ben Bradlee, she bragged about engaging in such racially-motivated deception.
"Multicultural" policeman in Britain
A Met Police officer leaked details of plans to arrest hate preacher Anjem Choudary to his wife while she was working for MP George Galloway, a court heard today.
Detective Inspector Mohammed Afiz Khan, 46, from Yorkshire, is accused of passing confidential information to his wife Aisha Ali-Khan while he was at the helm of the Muslim Contact Unit - part of the force's Counter Terrorism Command.
Ali-Khan, 33, who worked as the Bradford West MP's parliamentary secretary, is said to have asked her husband to use his position to investigate the source of a string of e-mails and obtain personal details.
In addition to the alleged leak concerning the radical Islamist cleric, Khan is also accused of obtaining CCTV footage from South Yorkshire Police without a valid reason.
The couple appeared together to face the charges during a brief hearing at Westminster Magisrates' Court. Khan, dressed in a grey suit and blue striped tie, and Ali-Khan, wearing all black, stood together as they confirmed their names, ages and addresses during the brief hearing.
The two defendants were charged last month following a Met probe into alleged wrongdoing. Khan is accused of improperly accessing the CCTV between March 16 and April 30, and of leaking details of Mr Choudary’s arrest on May 22 last year.
Ali-Khan is accused of asking her husband to commit misconduct in a public office on August 24 last year.
Judge Arbuthnot freed the pair, both of Keighley, West Yorkshire, on unconditional bail. They are due to appear at Southwark Crown Court on August 28.
Ali-Khan, of Keighley, West Yorkshire, is accused of two counts of encouraging the commission of offences. Khan is accused of two counts of misconduct in a public office and four counts of breaching the Data Protection Act.
Neither defendant entered any pleas to the charges.
Why does the BBC sneer about Britain's recovery but go crazy if Euroland's corpse so much as twitches?
Oh, joy it is to be alive! That was my instinctive, and admittedly sleepy, response on hearing the BBC radio news early yesterday morning. Listeners were informed that ‘the recession in the Eurozone may have ended’. Another bulletin told us that ‘there was modest growth across the Eurozone area’.
Time to crack open the champagne? Not quite. It turns out that this trumpeted growth was very modest indeed — just 0.3 per cent in the second quarter. Though Germany and France did enjoy growth, output fell in Italy, Spain and Holland.
However, on Radio 4’s Today programme, a decidedly excited Evan Davis tried to convince a Greek and a German businessman that the recovery was ‘sustained’. Both were unimpressed. The Greek pointed out that in his country unemployment stands at nearly 28 per cent.
Still, why be downbeat? Over on the BBC website, a headline declared emphatically that ‘the Eurozone comes out of recession’. Whoosh!
Alongside was a story proclaiming that ‘Britain’s unemployment falls by just 4,000’. ‘Just’ is a loaded word. It implies that things should have been better.
Could you imagine a BBC headline reading ‘Eurozone grows by just 0.3 per cent’? I can’t. We were baldly informed in another of its news bulletins that ‘the Eurozone is returning to growth’. There’s very little evidence that it is.
The BBC responded more favourably to a single piece of not-particularly-good news about the Eurozone than it has over recent weeks to a slew of positive statistics about the British economy.
When figures were released three weeks ago showing that the economy had grown by a healthy 0.6 per cent in the second quarter, the BBC website news piece attributed the view to George Osborne that Britain was ‘on the mend’ and made no judgment of its own.
An accompanying piece by the Corporation’s in-house doomster Stephanie Flanders was strikingly judgmental. It was full of caveats and reservations, some of which were perfectly sensible taken individually, but collectively they amounted to one long moan.
Since then we have had a fusillade of good economic stories which have often been treated with scepticism by the BBC. Manufacturing in June performed more strongly than in any month since 1992, and exports have soared to an all-time high, with all the growth accounted for by exports to non-Eurozone countries.
House prices in most parts of the country are rising sharply, while car sales in July increased by 12.7 per cent compared with a year previously. According to a survey of senior businessmen, confidence is higher than it has been for several years.
Some sort of mini-boom may be under way. Of course it could all go phut in a few months. My suggestion is certainly not that the BBC should hang out the bunting. These are still early days. And despite all the recent heartening news, output is still below where it was before the crash.
But it is impossible not to contrast the BBC’s enthusiastic treatment of the Eurozone’s ‘recovery’ with its reluctance to believe that George Osborne’s medicine can really be working.
Is the difference accounted for by the Corporation’s inbuilt prejudice in favour of the euro and the Eurozone, and its suspicions of a Tory-led Government whose economic policies it has constantly criticised?
And might it be that some at the BBC, which was once at the forefront of the bien pensant conviction that we should join the euro, can’t bear the thought that the British economy should be taking off while much of Euroland is still struggling?
If there is any other explanation for yesterday’s extraordinary behaviour by the Corporation, perhaps someone would be kind enough to tell me what it is.
The truth is that if we had been part of the euro, we would still be in the sick room along with Italy, Spain and Greece. Unlike them, we have been able to devalue because we are not locked into a single currency.
At best it can be reasonably said that Germany and some other northern European states (though not Holland) are showing slight growth while the southern European economies are still in a critical condition from which it is hard to say how they can recover.
If this can be described as a happy new dawn, then blow me. All that can be honestly said is that the Eurozone as a whole is doing a little less badly than it has been over the past 18 months. And I haven’t even mentioned the parlous state of some banks in Germany, Italy and France.
I would be the first to cheer if the Eurozone really were experiencing an uplift. Much as I deprecate the political gameplan of closer European integration that is driving this crazy experiment of a common currency, I don’t want to see large parts of Euroland permanently mired in depression.
For as long as they are, Britain’s recovery is likely to be held back, even if there are encouraging signs that an increasing proportion of our exports are going to non-Eurozone countries.
The BBC may be unable to see it, but the British economy appears at last to be stirring into action. And, much as the Corporation yearns for it to be otherwise, Euroland is not.
Surgeons and dentists with HIV to be allowed to operate on patients after ban is lifted by British Government
NHS staff infected with the Aids virus will be allowed to carry out operations and other invasive procedures for the first time.
A ban which has been in place for more than 20 years is to be lifted by the Government, which says it will not put patient safety at risk.
The ban was imposed because of fears that if an Aids-infected surgeon or dentist cut themselves during certain types of operation, it could result in the patient becoming infected.
Surgeons, dentists, midwives and nurses with HIV will be able to work normally providing they are taking drugs that eradicate the virus in the bloodstream.
In another move, from next year, people will be able to buy HIV self-testing kits that are currently illegal for home use.
England’s chief medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said science had moved on and it was time to scrap ‘outdated rules’.
She said lifting the operating ban on healthcare staff would bring the UK into line with most other Western countries.
An estimated 110 staff working in the NHS would be affected by the change, based on the numbers of Britons with HIV.
From next April, anyone with HIV wanting to carry out surgical and dental procedures would have to go on a confidential register and have three-monthly testing to ensure they were complying with treatment.
Prof Davies said: ‘We’ve got outdated rules. At the moment we bar totally safe healthcare workers who are on treatment with HIV from performing many surgical treatments, and that includes dentists.’
She said modern anti-retroviral drugs enabled people with HIV to lead normal lives, adding: ‘With effective treatment, they are not infectious.’ The risk to patients was ‘absolutely negligible’.
About 100,000 people in the UK are living with HIV, although experts say a quarter of those infected do not know it. In 2011, there were 6,000 new diagnoses of HIV in the UK.
Prof Davies said changing the rules would help remove some of the stigma of the disease and encourage healthcare workers who believed they could be at risk to get tested because their careers would no longer be on the line.
Although they are under a professional obligation to get tested in such circumstances, she admitted ‘a few’ might not do so for fear of the consequences.
Under the new rules, healthcare workers with HIV will be allowed to undertake all procedures if they are on effective combination of anti-retroviral drug therapy.
They must also have an undetectable viral load of HIV in their system, and must be regularly monitored. Public Health England will set up a confidential register holding data on infected workers.
There have been four cases worldwide of health workers infecting patients since 1992, with no cases in the UK. None of the workers was on drug treatment at the time.
HIV was no longer a killer disease, Prof Davies said. She added: ‘What we need is a simpler system that continues to protect the public through encouraging people to get tested for HIV as early as possible and that does not hold back some of our best healthcare workers because of a risk that is more remote than being struck by lightning.’
Deborah Jack, chief executive of the National Aids Trust, said: ‘Allowing healthcare workers living with HIV to undertake exposure-prone procedures corrects the current guidance which offers no more protection for the general public but keeps qualified and skilled people from working in the career they had spent many years training for.’
British Dental Association scientific adviser Professor Damien Walmsley added: ‘Dentists in the UK comply with rigorous infection control procedures to protect both patients and the dental team against the risk of transmission of blood-borne infections.’
Sir Nick Partridge, chief executive at HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust, said: ‘Advances in medication have transformed what it means to live with HIV, and it’s great to see regulations starting to catch up.
‘People diagnosed in good time can have full, healthy lives, and effective treatment dramatically reduces the risk of the virus being passed on.
‘So long as the right safeguards are in place, there is now no reason why a dentist or a midwife with HIV should be barred from treating patients, or why people who would prefer to test at home should be denied that chance.
Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.
American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of other countries. The only real difference, however, is how much power they have. In America, their power is limited by democracy. To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges. They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did: None. So look to the colleges to see what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way. It would be a dictatorship.
