The Ferguson Narrative


The narrative is, and will always be this:
Michael Brown was not a common street thug. That cop should be behind bars for killing that sweet innocent little boy. He was such a good example of a well rounded young man raised by wonderful, loving caring parents. Everyone knew this fine young black man as the “Gentle Giant.”

Young Michael Brown had a successful future ahead of him. He was a sweet, gentle young student that died at the hands of a racist white cop. That Grand Jury was held in secret and that cop got away with murdering a defenseless black teenager that was unarmed. There has been no justice served for the cold blooded shooting of that young sweet black boy by that racist white cop.

Like Georgia Congressman John Lewis said, “…this is Selma all over again.”

So now we will continue to riot, burn, loot, and steal from our own home town and turn our own community into a disaster area. We will destroy private businesses and put our friends and neighbors out of work all because another innocent young boy was shot down by a racist white cop.

So what if he chose to rob a store and then tried to beat up and take a police officers gun away from him while in his police car? That was no excuse for a white cop to shoot an innocent black teenager.

Well did I miss anything? Isn’t that the message we keep hearing spewed by the black race baiters and the rioters in Ferguson, Oakland, and Atlanta?

There is nothing I can say to change the minds of radical race baiters and ignorant fools regarding this and so many other issues like this one. As long as simple minded fools continue to carry that racial chip on their shoulders there will always be a racial grievance industry fueling the flames and keeping ignorant blacks on the plantation.

I support the decision of the Grand Jury. -JRoycroft


I have my own opinion on this illegal move our Ruler Obama made yesterday when he bypassed Congress and gave illegal immigrants a free pass. Why did he wait until now?

In reading many articles on both sides of this historical issue I’ve decided to share this article written by former talk
radio host Neal Boortz. Boortz nails it and I pretty much agree with all of it so Imma gonna be lazy and let Neal preach it in his own special way.


By Neal Boortz
OK .. so here we have it. 0bama is going to issue Executive Orders essentially granting amnesty to about five million people .. predominately Mexicans .. who entered this country illegally and then remained here illegally. These people love to tell us they’re not criminals. They are. So last night we heard our president — the man who is supposed to “faithfully execute” our laws – grant a blanket pardon to millions of criminals.
I note that 0bama’s amnesty applies to the parents of children born in the United States. Well here’s a little “did you know?” Decades ago I was talking about Mexican woman coming to the United States to have their children. These women lived along the Mexican U.S. border and had work permits that allowed them to cross the border every day to work for an American business or in an American household. When these women became pregnant they started planning to make their babies US citizens. As they reached their due date they would carefully wit for that moment they knew labor was starting. They would immediately cross the border and call 911. The ambulance would arrive and take them to the hospital … a U.S. hospital, of course. The second these babies are downloaded they become American citizens with a U.S. birth certificate.
Later many of these same women moved across the border and settled, as illegals, in the U.S. This “have the baby in the U.S.” bit has been continued to this day, and now these women are now among those who 0bama has said will be allowed to stay.
The real problem here is just how do you deport the parents of a child who happens to be a US citizen? The answer – the only realistic answer – is you DON’T. To attempt to do so would mean that you are either separating families – taking children from their mothers – or you’re deporting US citizens (the children). Neither is going to happen.
The answer to this particular conundrum is to change the law or the Constitution as necessary to remove the provision that grants automatic citizenship to children born in this country. Perhaps the requirement should be that at least one of the parents be a citizen.
Something else about the millions of illegals in this country. BOTH the Democrats AND the Republicans are to blame here. Both sides have steadfastly refused to do what needs to be done to stop the invasion across our borders. The Democrats have refused to act to secure our borders because the Democrat Party relies on minority votes to gain and maintain political power. Only about 25% of the Democrat votes in this year’s midterm election came from white voters. Democrats see every illegal crossing the border as a potential vote.
As for the Republicans … no action from them either because Republican businessmen have benefitted from the Mexican invasion. How? These illegals WORK, as least the first generation illegals do. (Second generation? Not so much.) They work, they produce, and they don’t complain. These businessmen simply can’t find enough Americans with the same work ethic. Facts is facts … and them is facts.
Now the Republicans are telling us how furious they are over 0bama’s executive orders. Understand. But I would feel a lot better about the Republican’s outrage over 0bama’s actons if they could somehow counter the argument that many Republican presidents, including Reagan and Bush 43, have taken similar actions. There’s an answer to that charge – but how many of you have heard that answer? Not many, I’m betting, because the Republicans are so piss-poor at getting their message across. So … here you go. Ronald Reagan and the two Bushs issued executive orders pertaining to immigration AFTER congress passed immigration laws. The executive orders were issued for the purpose of telling the branches of the Executive Branch of our federal government just how the laws just passed by the Congress were to be implemented. 0bama, on the other hand, is issuing executive orders not to implement laws passed by Congress, but explicitly because Congress has NOT passed the laws he wanted passed!
Here’s my translation of what 0bama said last night: “I wanted congress to pass a specific law. They didn’t. That really pisses me off, so I’m going to take executive action to implement the very law that congress refused to pass.” This is the very argument Geraldo Rivera made on Megyn Kelly’s show last night. He said 0bama had the right to issue this order because the House of Representatives wasn’t going to pass a law. Really? That’s the America we want to live in? Destroy the balance of powers by giving the Executive branch legislative authority?
On at least 22 occasions over the past years 0bama has specifically said that he had no legal authority to do what he did last night. Come on folks! What is wrong with this picture? Under this executive thought process, can you tell me just what the limits on 0bama’s power are? Is he not acting like and actually becoming a despot?
This whole immigration thing is going to flesh out quite a bit in the next week or so – with a bit of a lapse while we consider the Ferguson riots that many think are on the way. Being the loud mouth that I am, I’ll have much more to say later.
Also .. did anyone hear anything last night about closing the borders? You didn’t? Me either. Illegals have been flooding across our borders for decades. Yes … a flood. Now what is the first thing you do if you discover that your house is flooding. You find the source of the leak. You find out where the water is coming from and you stop the leak. Does it make any sense to start mopping up the water while the leak is still pouring in? No immigration solution – legal or otherwise –
Let me close with this. I haven’t read anything in 0bama’s comments that addresses citizenship and the vote. The end game for the Democrats in this whole illegal immigration game is to make sure that, at some point, these illegals will be able to go to the polls. That’s the path to a permanent Democrat majority.
I’ve said often .. and now believe more strongly than ever .. that 0bama came to this country in 1979 dedicated to the cause of destroying America. His executive action ploy is a step in that direction.

Disco Pioneer Hamilton Bohannon Comes Home to Newnan

November 2, 2014


Guess who’s coming home on Thursday? The Newnan Times Herald reports that Disco legend, Hamilton Bohannon, will be returning home on Thursday to be honored by the Coweta Public Library System.

“The Man & The Legend,” a dedication to Bohannon and his legacy as a pioneer in American music throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

Things you may not know about Bohannon:

In his early days he played in a band that featured legendary left hand guitarist Jimmy Hendricks. In 1964 Bohannon was hired as the drummer in little 13 year old Stevie Wonders touring band. In 1967 he worked for Motown providing backing for Stevie Wonder, Smokie Robison, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, and Diana Ross and the Supremes.

As much as I personally cringed at the thought of Disco, I think it’s pretty damn cool that my home town is also the home of the guy that not only put Disco on the map, but also was one of the key ingredients in the Motown movement. Motown still is one of my favorite music genres. Like Rock n Roll, there may never be another era like Motown.

Welcome home Mr Bohannon, and thank you so much for all you did during the the best era for American music. -JRoycroft

GUILTY! Did a Jury under pressure change their minds to appease the State of Georgia?

October 26, 2014 (Updated Oct 27, 2014 8:28pm)



Big news here in Newnan, Ga.

After a young mans name and face were plastered all over the news as being accused of raping a young unidentified woman, he has now been convicted of rape. By the way, what makes it ok to publicize a mans identity that has been accused of rape but the accuser goes unidentified? Somethings not right about that. Suppose he was found not guilty? Then you have a guy whose name was already smeared publicly and a woman left still being called a victim. That’s always been a big issue for me, but that’s a topic for another time.

On Friday, Mr Benjamin Gray, was found guilty of rape. This was a very unusual and complex case because it involved a man who was accused of raping a woman while he was sleep walking. You really need to read reporter Clay Neely’s piece here to get some understanding of just how complex this case was.

The jury asked the judge in a hand written note if they could choose a lesser charge by unanimous vote and the state refused. So the jury found Mr Gray guilty of rape anyways. Did a Jury under pressure change their minds to appease the State of Georgia? It sure sounds that way. Now this young man is faced with a 25 year mandatory sentence.

After reading the story printed in the Newnan Times Herald, I cannot help but believe this young man is a victim of a jury that took the easy way out of the court room Friday. Now granted, I was not there and have very little information other than what I’ve seen in the print media and comments I’ve read from those who attended the trial. Still, after seeing the actual note to the Judge, it’s so obvious to me that this jury did not believe there was enough evidence for a rape conviction. It almost seems as though this jury just said “Oh well, the DA wants a conviction of rape so lets give him what he wants no matter what we believe.” Perhaps they were tired and just wanted to go home,and saw the states denial as an opportunity to throw in the towel.

I’m sorry folks, but this is not how the system is supposed to work. This jury is not required to fold into the desires of the prosecution for the sake of a decision. They could have even taken the extreme option of Jury Nullification  to  prevent the rape conviction. Of course most people are not aware of the right for a jury to make that decision. People need to educate themselves about how our court system works  and what rights jurors have. Had I been on that jury there quite possibly would have been a different verdict. Mr Gray would be sitting in the comfort of his home with his wife tonight.

It is clear to me that this jury failed Mr Gray and should be ashamed of themselves. I don’t personally know Mr Gray and I’m not trying to take sides with anyone here. It just really bothers me when a jury seemingly gives in to pressure when a mans life is at stake. This young man is now facing a minimum of 25 years in prison, convicted of raping a woman that stayed silent during the “attack” while his wife lay asleep in the next room.

I hope that Mr Benjamin Gray has a good attorney that will get an appeal and that he gets a fair and honest jury next time. A jury that gives a damn and understands the importance of the service they have been chosen to perform.

The note the jurors wrote to the judge speaks volumes about how they really felt.  They did not believe Mr Gray was guilty of rape. They had reasonable doubt. -JRoycroft
