6 Belcher Spent Drunken Night With Another Woman Before Killing His Girlfriend

I follow Devin McCorurty of the Patriots on Twitter.

Right after that news came out he Tweeted that we should all pray and not judge people. Kassandra Perkins could not be reached for comment.

I stopped following him right then and there.

Sorry, no fucking excuse. None. Zero. Hopefully Belcher is now in Hell where his name is now a synonym for getting raped by the Barbed Cock of Satan.

18 - "Some Dem Lawmakers Refocus On Gun Control In Wake Of Belcher Murder Suicide"

If you're surprised by that then you've not been paying attention over the past 40 years.

- "Heartwarming News Of The Day, NYT Cutting More Jobs"

The irony would be lost on them.

- "America Leads World In Energy Revolution"

Of course. Were it not for liberal Democrats, and the non-voting conservatives and conservative poseurs who manage to keep them in power, the U.S. absolutely could dominate the world's energy production and export markets. We have enough energy right beneath our collective feet to turn OPEC into our bitch. With the stroke of a pen we could create millions upon millions of lasting, high-paying energy sector jobs.

Very little of that actually will happen, however. Politics and policies have real world consequences. It would be helpful if some day the coffee klatch right would clue in to that reality.

29 I'm all for Japan beefing up it's self-defense and ally-defense role in the Pacific. With this dickhead in the Oval Office they know they can't depend on the US to come to their aid in any conflict against China, and China is so desperate to mask and obfuscate about their internal crises that they'll gladly get into a hot war with Japan as a distraction. Oh, and by the way, it would be a handy way for Chinato get rid of some of their excess young men. Lots of young men hanging around with no job, no opportunity for advancement, and no chance to marry is a bubbling cauldron just waiting to boil over into rebellion.

37 >>>The problem was taking it into the path of the damn hurricane. Surely there had to be a way for him to take it on a course that avoided the hurricane.

I believe they did their best. Recall that the path was uncertain for a long time previous to Sandy hitting, and that it was a much larger storm than usual, if only Cat 1. Then recall the weathercasters - hyping as usual - gave conflicting reports about Nor'easters affecting the region at the same time. Then recall the ship itself is slow-moving.

The Capt was trying to hug the coastline and duck south of the storm surge. With a tighter storm he might have made it. With an ocean-going tugboat he might have made it, too - but those were likely in short supply by the time he made his move.

38 The people who argue about taking guns away are more concerned about
protecting murderer's lives. The innocent they don't give a shit about.


This. The only thing you can say was significantly less likely had Javon Belcher not owned a gun is his suicide. The more information that comes out, the more this appears to be an unprovoked (that is: there doesn't seem to have been a fight first) murder. That means he could have killed her by smothering her in bed, beating her to death with his fists or some blunt instrument, or stabbed her. None of those require a gun.

So the only thing him not having a gun might have accomplished is that he wouldn't have committed suicide. So if someone is using this incident as the basis of arguing for gun control, they're arguing to protect the murder, not out of any sympathy for the victim.

I dunno about "we," Vic, but I've about had it with politics in general. On one hand, the libs are running roughshod over everything that stands in the way of a totalitarian thug state (including the Constitution) and are getting plenty of encouragement from the MFM. Treason doesn't surprise me any more. Boner is not part of the opposition; he's part of the problem.

What does bug me is that "conservatives" are rolling over and playing dead. We can't question anything about Choom Boy's qualifications or background, and we sure as hell can't push for any kind of investigation into massive vote fraud or other crimes committed by his gang. That would take too much actual effort, apparently, so is strengst verboten.

We might as well cut straight to the cheerleaders....

41 That gun control link pisses me off. I don't own any pistols. I have a Remington 12 gauge and a Marlin .22 lr. However, when my brother died, some of his friends framed his Desert Eagle along with his Ranger and Green Beret tabs and gave it to my parents. I think it may be time to "break the glass" on it and fire a few rounds. I'm certain my brother would approve.

42 Vic, what can we say about Boner? He's purging Tea Partiers from the important committees now that their power has declined. He probably hated every second he had to spend brown-nosing their shiny new asses.

He's just another dirtbag politician, I hate them all. Scumsuckers, every last one of them.

Most of the votes I've cast over the years have been "well, this scumbag is a little better than the other shitheel".

Maybe Boner won't roll over completely. Who knows. But he likes power, they all do, and it's no good to have power if you don't use it (apparently).

I saw the link Vic, and didn't click it. Now I'll tell you why.

There have 5 million words written about the fiscal cliff, the main actors, their possible positions, their doomsday scenarios, and more pics of Dingy Reid than I ever want to see in my whole life.

There are 3 things that we, right here at this blog, can do. We can call our representatives and cajole them once an actual vote on something is scheduled. We can try to influence the next candidates to run.

But finally and most importantly, we can vote with our feet. Move to a lower taxed, freer state. Refuse to support any companies that act against our interests. Go Galt. I consider actions like this 'a vote with our feet'. That, ultimately, is our only real power. The collective decisions of millions of Americans that this WILL NOT go on. At least, not with my help.

Vic, for myself, I have become so demoralized after this election that almost nothing political interests me. I was and remain convinced that the RINO establishment is essentially dedicated to doing "republican socialism" in contrast to the Obama machine which is dedicated to "european democratic socialism" (on steroids). Boehner is a worthless "leader" and a poster child for term limits, but he, too, won in this election. He will sell us (conservatives and limited government type) out as fast as he can make it look like his fingerprints weren't really on the cookie jar. The whole kabuki dance about no "tax rate increases" but maintaining (or increasing) "revenue" (which an honest man would call a tax) is a travesty.


The only thing I see that I can count on with our ruling class is that so long as they can maneuver to ensure that the ruling class is NEVER significantly impacted by anything they do, we the people are screwed. We are less than pawns to them, we are chattel, and conservative chattel are very annoying chattel, so they intend to teach us a lesson.


Nice republic while we had it. Ben Franklin was right again.

the police and military have. Also, you don't need a semi-automatic
weapon.

Bob Costas you ignorant slut. The 2nd Amendment is (partially) to let us resist the Government. If I can't have the same weapons they can, how can I effectively resist them?

If you read it, it turns out that members of the 501st, which is known for its charity work, helped a Star Wars geek whose house was burnt down and he lost all of his memorabilia. Not only did they help rebuild the house, they gave up parts of their own collections to rebuild his. That's not trivial bullshit, that's the positive side of fandom.


Look, I am utterly certain that Disney is going to fuck up Star Wars. Whining about Star Wars cosplayers helping with Extreme Makeover Home Edition for a fellow geek's home is just lame.

152 Stormtroopers appear on Extreme Home Makeover:

Vader's Fist is a long time Lucas Studios sanctioned group - they do lots of charity work and appearances in the San Antonio area - I've got friends in the group and they are all die hard fans. They are all also really nice people. FYI - the working R2D2 was built from scratch as a garage project by a father and his kids.

On the other hand, the Makeover folks can be an arrogant bunch of jerks. You should have heard the phone calls that vendors got pretty much demanding free services when they did a project in my community several years ago,

199 Gossip in general I can't stand. If I ever meet a Kardashian I won't know who the hell I'm looking at and I won't care, except that I'll be saying in my head, "Wow, what a piece of white trash." we have an unhealthy obsession with celebrity in the modern world, and it's very off-putting.

But that said, indulging in a bit of chat about a particular individual in the public eye who appears to be, for all intents and purposes, a lovely individual, who's very much in love with her husband, and who is having a miserable time with her first pregnancy, is not, in my opinion, worthy of vicious, uncalled for castigation.

Now, if I ever start talking about Kim Kardashian's wardrobe, then you can bitch at me. I'll deserve it.

200 I think the only thing my Dad would fight for would be increased pay for the working folk "little guy". If the government banned anything that would hurt only the "rich" or any corporate CEO, he'd praise it. Anything that might somehow put blue collar workers (union workers especially) out of work, he'd fight hard. He'd love it if computer, book, and pacemaker manufacturers were nationalized, though.

He raised me to be a Republican, and owned his own successful restaurant business for 30 years while I was growing up. He eventually got sick of the stress, and got a UAW job at the local American Axle thanks to his union boss brother. Now that he's retired, he's become an insufferable America-hating Socialist.

Just for fun, ask him if he'd fight if the
government ever tried to ban computers, books, or some other such
thing---pacemakers maybe. When he says he would, ask him when he became
brainwashed by the manufacturers of those things.

"President Obama’s

most important and disturbing of his many transformative plans. Not only
is Obama’s attempt to devise what is in effect a national K-12 school
curriculum arguably unconstitutional and illegal, the fact that most
Americans have no idea that the new “Common Core” (aka Obamacore) even
exists may be the most troubling thing about it."

my dad beat my mom, stopped and years later committed suicide. And it did cross our minds that we were glad he didn't choose to take anybody else with him. I am not black, and this was not an inner city. You are correct

If my Dad had taken my mom with him, I don't think we would be holding wakes "celebrating his life", or blaming his profession, or health, or medications or anything else. Nor would anybody else.

I posted number from some studies yesterday that show domestic abuse is a problem, and a bigger problem in the black community. Why is that?

The number one cause of death of young black females according to a Tufts University study is murder by a domestic partner.

Comments (41)
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The military judge who ordered the Fort Hood shooting suspect’s beard to be forcibly shaved has been thrown off the case, but the ruling ends lengthy delays in the trial of the Army officer charged with the 2009 rampage that killed 13 people.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled Monday that Col. Gregory Gross did not appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan. Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.

I'm hearing at least part of this is because some of the people in question pissed off the establishment for non-Tea Party things.

For example, Rep. Dave Schweikert (R-AZ)is being demoted because he pissed off powerful Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) in taking out establishment favorite Rep. Ben Quayle (R-AZ) in a contentious primary.

I expect Rep. Jeff Landry to be demoted if he ends up beating Rep. Charles Boustany in the Louisiana runoff, as Boustany is an establishment favorite who has been well-funded in taking on the one-term Landry, whose district was eliminated when the lines were redrawn.

The problem is that when the Banhammer comes down, the comments get renumbered. Also depending on the device being used, it's very difficult to scroll up and find the comment number referenced. I do get why most people do it though.


I have seen people using comment number and nic which isn't nearly as bad since it at least provides some context clues as to the text of the comment to which a response is being given. In my opinion, just plain numbers is very confusing.

from talking about both politics and music.

Townshend, who described himself
"a bit of a neocon" politically, said he was surprised that Mitt Romney
lost the election to President Obama.

330 I posted number from some studies yesterday that show domestic abuse is a problem, and a bigger problem in the black community. Why is that?

The number one cause of death of young black females according to a Tufts University study is murder by a domestic partner.

--thunderb

I answered the question already: the prevalence of domestic partnership and illegitimacy.

I also mentioned that I have never been hit or threatened by a black boyfriend or my ex-husband, who was black. But I have been hit by a white boyfriend and threatened by another. Thinking back, I do remember that at least one of the white boyfriends grew up in a house without a father. I also know that he struggled with depression.

These stories may be anecdotal but the fact that most violent criminals grow up without a father isn't. So there you go.

348 Baldilocks,

Government statistics reveal that the percentage of all babies born to unwed mothers nationally rose to 32 percent in 1997 from only 5.3 percent in 1960. Among blacks nationally, 69 percent of births were to unwed mothers.

http://www.dadi.org/dn_bleak.htm

It is a cultural question. Why is the rate of domestic abuse so high? You say it is illegitimate birth and lack of a father. I am sure that is right, in part.

If thats the framework you want, why are nearly 70 per cent of all black babies born out of wedlock? Why is that tolerated and accepted. It has skyrocketed for white as well, but is currently at 38 per cent.

Conversely, the birth rate for married black women is lower than the birth rate for married white women.

If that is the cause of the problem, why is illegitimate birth so accepted?

Speaker Boehner's $800 billion tax hike will destroy American jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more, while not reducing our $16 trillion debt by a single penny. This isn't rocket science. When you take money out of the economy, it destroys jobs, and when you give politicians more money, they spend it. This is why Republicans must oppose tax increases and insist on real spending reductions that shrink the size of government and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money.

I think a lot of the "broken" part stems from the lack of "don't go there" boundaries which factors into both traditional and single-parent families.

Seeing that the majority of single-parent families already "went there" -- if you get my drift, the message "don't make the same mistakes I did" either isn't conveyed or it's not heeded... you did it, so why can't I? So culture still plays a big part, not race.

358 From the American Bar Association;

African Americans, especially African American Women, suffer deadly violence from family members at rates decidedly higher than for other racial groups in the United States. However, it is observed that research concerning family violence among African Americans is inadequate.

Overall, African Americans were victimized by intimate partners a significantly higher rates than persons of any other race between 1993 and 1998. Black females experienced intimate partner violence at a rate 35% higher than that of white females, and about 22 times the rate of women of other races. Black males experienced intimate partner violence at a rate about 62% higher than that of white males and about 22 times the rate of men of other races.

African-American women experience significantly more domestic violence than White women in the age group of 20-24. Generally, Black women experience similar levels of intimate partner victimization in all other age categories as compared to White women, but experience slightly more domestic violence. (Estimates are provided from the National Crime Victimization Survey, which defines an intimate partner as a current or former spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend. Violent acts include murder, rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault.)

So I guess even symbolic dissent from leadership is frowned upon, and many conservatives are cool with that.

Even when that dissent is because the GOP doesn't go far enough, pushing the Overton window and making Republicans seem moderate, it's still not licking the cock of authority so I suppose it got to go.

when you go to the DOJ website, which I initially did, there is very little data they share other than some old study of abuse by servicemen in Alaska that was very small and very old.

When I read in to the weeds of tat report, they noted that the domestic abuse rate by black servicemen was far higher than in other races, but explained it may have been due to stress caused by racism

There is not much data out there. There is on whites, asians and hispanics. I even found out that the highest rates of stalking were from American Indian males (that surprised me). Not much info provided on the black community.

This has been talked about ad infinitum. Black women were conned into replacing husbands and fathers with government back in the 60s. It has become part of the culture but it wasn't before that.

It's certainly true that prior to the 60s illegitimacy had *less* stigma among black Americans than in other cultures. That stems from the fact that slaves were often forbidden to formally marry and that many black women had children by their masters. But, after slavery, marriage and family were very important to black Americans. That changed in the 60s, as did a lot of things.

Some of us Christians think that this is more of a spiritual issue than anything else. Remember what happened in 1962.

Since 70% will reoffend, 28000 will be back in 3 years. Now that we know that children from a broken family end up in prison in disproportionate numbers, it seems that his releasing felons will ENSURE the prisons will be overcrowded again...after he leaves office. Does he think the felons will not procreate while they're visiting the outside world? I think he knows exactly what he's doing....he's ensuring the criminal class get to reproduce.
Remember, Comrade Brown is a Jesuit. Which begs the question...how can the Democrats abide an anti-abortionpolitician in their ranks?

Ten R congressmen voted against the Ryan budget. Schweikert was not one of them.

Schweikert is being punished for pissing off Rep. Jeb Hensarling for beating Rep. Ben Quayle in a primary fight.

382 A U.N. conference that kicked off today in Dubai has sparked fear of Internet censorship in the U.S. -- something U.S. Ambassador Terry Kramer said he is doing everything in his power to prevent.
“Nothing regarding the Internet do we want subject to U.N. review and regulation,” Kramer told FoxNews.com.
Monday marked the first day of an 11-day conference. Kramer, who leads the U.S. delegation at the conference, said that the first day had “gone well” and so far delegates are “still in the early stage, talking about what should be reviewed when.” No specific regulations have been debated yet.

383 Symbolic votes against the Ryan budget. They weren't responsible for defeating it.

So I guess even symbolic dissent from leadership is frowned upon, and many conservatives are cool with that.


Symbolic or not, they still voted against it. If they're so idealistic that they believe a bill that cut more than the Ryan plan would go anywhere, they don't belong on the budget committee. Where was their brilliant plan?

No matter how conservative and/or tough the Speaker is, it's going to be tough to negotiate if he can't count on his own budget committee to back him after coming up with a deal.

Congressmen have the right to vote against leadership, but they shouldn't be surprised if it costs them their own leadership seat.

A leader operates in reality and understands the constraints that come with that.

387 A Utah judge is reportedly “astonished and deeply troubled” that an adoption agency deliberately circumvented the rights of a married U.S. Army drill instructor whose daughter was adopted at birth without his knowledge.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Judge Darold McDade, in a 48-page ruling, has given the adoptive couple 60 days to give the 21-month-old child back and said the Adoption Center of Choice’s policy of refusing to disclose any information to Terry Achane, 31, once he learned what happened to the girl whom he named Teleah is “utterly indefensible.”
"This is a case of human trafficking," attorney Mark Wiser told the newspaper. "Children are being bought and sold. It is one thing what [adoption agencies] have been doing with unmarried biological fathers. It is in a new area when they are trying to take a child away from a married father who wants to have his child."
The girl’s adoptive parents, Jared and Kristi Frei, declined to comment, as did their former and current attorneys. James Webb, executive director of the Adoption Center of Choice, did not return a call from The Salt Lake Tribune and attempts by the newspaper to reach Tira Bland, the birth mother who is now divorced from Achane, was unsuccessful.
Achane, a drill instructor in South Carolina, said he just wants his baby girl back.
"I am not a very religious person," he said in an interview last week. "But ‘Thou shalt not steal.’ If they prolong it, that is more time away from my daughter. There are precious moments I can’t get back ... It has been a year and a half now. There is no court order saying they have the right to my child. I just won the case. I want to get my daughter and raise my daughter."

And I think the primary reason for this is that in the inner cities this is seen as the major form of earning a living after you drop out of high school. And as Obama ramps up programs that reward children for dropping out of HS and having babies this will get worse.

Leadership collectively dislikes Schweikert. As for Hensarling, I find it hard to believe that he is angry at Schweikert because he (Hensarling) is very conservative and not a "yes man". One recent example of this would be the leadership elections, in which he joined Pence and Ryan in backing Dr. Price over McMorris Rodgers.

425 Report: Obama Admin Pushed European Countries To Summon Israeli Ambassadors To Protest New Settlement Construction…

The United States was behind the summoning of Israeli ambassadors by several European nations, Israeli sources with close ties to US administration officials said Monday.

“The European move is essentially an American move,” one official said. “The Brits asked the Americans how to act.”

The Foreign Ministry fears Europe will take further punitive steps against Israe over its decision to advance construction in the E1 area between Ma’ale Adumim and Jerusalem.

Last week Israel announced the construction of an additional 3,000 housing units in Jerusalem and the West Bank. But it was the decision to advance the planning procedures of housing units in the segment connecting Ma’ale Adumim with Jerusalem, known as the E1 project, that truly infuriated Washington and Europe.

446 So you're complaining that NO ONE should have voted either way on the Ryan budget? LOL.

No, but if there can't be consensus even on a bill too conservative to pass the Senate, what can there be consensus on?

If they're going to reflexively vote against anything shy of their own personal version of idealistic perfection, they don't belong in a leadership role.

458 You also have a firm grasp on the meaning of similes apparently. "people
like DeMint" must be in the senate I suppose, because DeMint is.


Yes, clearly you meant "like" as in "similar to" and not "such as".

After all, they're exactly like Jim DeMint with regards to the Ryan budget. Except for, you know, the fact that DeMint voted for it and they voted against.

Mirror fucking images they are. You got me there.

460 Correction:

Back at the CDC mortality tables, homicide is the #2 COD in black females for ages 15-19, 20-24, and #5 cause in 25-34.

% of total deaths is 20%, 18.6% and 8.7% respectively.

Not good, but compare that to the implication that most black females ages 15-34 who die are murdered. Even in that narrow demographic, you're talking 1in5 trailing off to 1in11, for an age cohort is almost guaranteed to suffer death by unnatural causes.

Note that for ages 1 to 24, Unintentional Injuries are the leading causes, before tailing off to number 2 and 4 through age 54.

As you get older, you get smarter. Presumably. Likewise, Homicide drops out of the top 10 after age 44.

Yes it was, and that's why I don't want it brought back in government schools. The *best* that could be hoped for would be Monday/Hindu prayers, Tuesday/Christian, etc. The day of the week that the muslim prayer is said is the day that all teh kids are considered converts to islam for the purposes of shariah enforcement. We'll find out very quickly that the muslims are *very* serious about islam being the official state religion of this country.

Ok Hollowpoint, apparently it's most important to get concensus on bills that aren't going to pass anyway.

I would have thought it more important to get the votes on bills that might actually pass and not worry about the ones that were just for show anyway, but you sure schooled me on that.

If you're going to vote on a shiny phoney show budget just to show you want to balance the budget and demonstrate the party ideal, some people wanted one that actually balanced it instead of promising to balance it in 2072.

If your fucking ideal (which isn't going to pass regardless,and exists only to demonstrate your approach) doesn't balance the budget until2072, what the hell does practical reality look like? I'll tell you what it looks like: it looks bad. We're fucked no matter who we elect.

Just wait 5 years and see where Republican leadership leads you. Assuming it even takes that long...

It ought really really tell you something that even when Republicans are putting out budgets just for show that they know they won't even be held to, they still can't find enough cuts to balance the budget.

Well, at least not before 2072, assuming Congress recesses for 6 decades and does nothing to change that.

But hey, hey, SQUIRREL! Dem gays trying to be all gay up in each others assholes and they hate jesus! God Bless Mitch McConnell!

Nobody is suggesting otherwise.

In the meantime, the GOP will be completely ineffective if divided into two separate factions that don't support each other when it matters. Would they have voted for the Ryan budget if its passage counted on their votes? We'll never know.

Party discipline. It matters.

Newsflash, the GOP will be completely ineffective. It matters not whether it is divided or not (but for the record, yesit already is too).

Maybe party discipline mattered back when the party mattered.

People need to wake up to the fact we are past the point of no return.

There's no way to back orderly out of this. We cannot pay back these debts and we will not ever pay back these debts. It will be inflated away until the currency pops.

As it stands we would need 50% tax rates just to stand still and not fall further into our financial hole. At this point, I don't even think that stalling is possible - you cannot get 50% in revenue even if you put the rates to 85%. Raising the rates to a place where we would take in enough revenue to feasibly solve this problem even with massive unprecedented draconic cuts, would tank the economy and lower revenue further, requiring even higher rates. But rates can't go over 100%, and this shit cannot continue.

Nobody in the GOP is going to save you. It really doesn't matter what jackassery they're committing this particular morning. They don't even have a vague semblance of a plan that might turn this thing around. Which might have something to do with why those jackass purists felt compelled to ruin everything by demanding a plan that might actually work before it was utterly too late... but, it's too late.

Did we not JUST finish discussing the fact that the Ryan budget actually DIDN'T matter, because it wasn't going to pass regardless?

You're complaining they didn't support you when it didn't matter either way, just for the record. So don't try moving the goalposts somewhere more reasonable.
