Baltimore Orioles COO John Angelos
Orioles’ COO John Angelos, the son of owner Peter Angelos, took to his own Twitter to deliver a powerful statement about the situation in Baltimore.
“The innocent working families of all backgrounds whose lives and dreams have been cut short by excessive violence, surveillance and other abuses of the Bill of Rights by government pay the true price, and ultimate price, one that far exceeds the importance of any kids’ game played tonight, or ever, at Camden Yards,” Angelos wrote. “We need to keep in mind people are suffering and dying around the U.S., and while we are thankful no one was injured at Camden Yards, there is a far bigger picture for poor Americans in Baltimore and everywhere who don’t have jobs and are losing economic, civil and legal rights, and this makes inconvenience at a ballgame irrelevant in light of the needless suffering government is inflicting upon ordinary Americans.”
Angelos comments came after Baltimore sports radio host Brett Hollander criticized the protestors, saying their measures were counterproductive. In Angelos’ long exchange with Hollander, the COO shared a thorough explanation on why tensions in the city were building even before Gray’s death ignited the riots.
“My greater source of personal concern, outrage and sympathy beyond this particular case is focused neither upon one night’s property damage nor upon the acts,” Angelos wrote, “but is focused rather upon the past four-decade period during which an American political elite have shipped middle-class and working-class jobs away from Baltimore and cities and towns around the U.S. to third-world dictatorships like China and others, plunged tens of millions of good, hard-working Americans into economic devastation, and then followed that action around the nation by diminishing every American’s civil rights protections in order to control an unfairly impoverished population living under an ever-declining standard of living and suffering at the butt end of an ever-more militarized and aggressive surveillance state.”
Damn Right!, and well John; Thanks for spreading the Voodoo!

No $hit. However, if you still need convincing, an America Rising PAC video makes the case, based on news events, statements from Hillary Clinton and comments from political observers like Democratic strategist James Carville. Thinking about voting for Hillary? Well if you’re on this site, probably not but check out this video anyway. Tell your friends!; spread the Voodoo…

A painting titled “Obama’s Foreign Policy,” made by artist Jon McNaughton, has just been released. The artwork depicts Obama smiling mid-swing as he plays a round of golf with a massive nuclear explosion is visible in the background. Perfect! and absolutely true; as of Feb. 16th, Obummer has played 219 rounds of golf while simultaneously allowing the United States to become a shell of it’s former glory. We still can’t believe this clown is our President. If Hilary wins in 2016, you can expect more of the same.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), in progress near Washington, D.C., Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was asked by talk show host Sean Hannity what 5 things he would do if elected President of the United States. As he made the points before, Cruz rattled off his list without taking a breath or skipping a beat:
- Repeal every blasted word of ObamaCare.
- Abolish the IRS. Put the IRS agents on the border.
- Stop the out of control regulators at the EPA and alphabet soup of Washington.
- Defend our constitutional rights. All of them.
- Restore America’s leadership in the world as a shining city on a hill.
Just to add a couple more:
- The indictment of Hillary Clinton for the criminal cover-up of the Benghazi Embassy attack.
- Order the GAO to investigate Barack Obama for misuse of public funds.

Rudy Giuliani went straight for the jugular during a private group dinner here featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by openly questioning whether President Barack Obama “loves America.” The former New York mayor, speaking in front of the 2016 Republican presidential contender and about 60 right-leaning business executives and conservative media types, directly challenged Obama’s patriotism, discussing what he called weak foreign policy decisions and questionable public remarks when confronting terrorists. Enjoy!
Rudy, one question; you going to run in 2016? You got our vote…
