Sharpton Just Put out a Shocking Call to Black Churches Nationwide – It Could Be His Most Dangerous Work Yet

downloadIf the Rev. Al Sharpton has his way, black American Christians will help Iran and President Obama get what they want.

“I am calling on ministers in black churches nationwide to go to their pulpits Sunday and have their parishioners call their senators and congressmen to vote yes on the Iran nuclear plan,” Sharpton said last week in his weekly Saturday rally in New York City.

Sharpton claimed black churches have a unique interest in the agreement.

“We have a disproportionate interest, being that if there is a war, our community is always disproportionately part of the armed services, and that a lot of the debate is by people who will not have family members who will be at risk,” Sharpton said. Despite Sharpton’s claim, official documents report that, as of 2014, the U.S. armed forces are 30.7 percent non-white.

Sharpton’s latest call continues a strong pro-treaty position on the part of black lawmakers. In July, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, met with more than 30 members of the Congressional Black Caucus in an effort to get them to oppose the Iran deal. The responses were not positive.

“Is that the Republican guy from Florida?” Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., reportedly laughed when asked if he had met with the ambassador. “We had a long talk.” (Read more from “Sharpton Just Put out a Shocking Call to Black Churches Nationwide – It Could Be His Most Dangerous Work Yet” HERE)

Pastor Calls Sharpton out When He Asks for Money in Church: ‘You’re Nothing but a PIMP!’

A black pastor fed up with charlatan Al Sharpton called out the race hustler as a “pimp” during anti-violence rally Saturday in Connecticut.

And oily Al promptly proved the man’s point by acting just like one, according to news reports.

According to CT News Junkie and Fox CT, the scene unfolded at Shiloh Baptist Church in Hartford where an overwhelmingly black crowd had marched in an anti-violence rally following the deaths of four people in a spate of shootings since mid-May . . .

In the church, Sharpton was challenged from the pews by the Rev. Marcus Mosiah Jarvis, pastor of Christ the Cornerstone Praise and Western Tabernacle church, CT News Junkie reported.

“How dare you ask the people of Hartford to give you their money?” Jarvis shouted. “You’re nothing but a pimp!” (Read more from “Pastor Calls Sharpton out When He Asks for Money in Church: ‘You’re Nothing but a PIMP!'” HERE)

Celebrations Begin in Baltimore as Some React to Officers’ Charges [+video]

celebrationsBy CBS Baltimore. Cheers erupted as City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced that charges were being filed against the six officers involved in the apprehension, arrest and death of Freddie Gray. That feeling of elation reverberated through the streets of Baltimore, and especially the Penn-North neighborhood that was the scene of Monday’s riots, as residents applauded the decision to indict.

The scene of Pennsylvania and North avenues was much different than it was Monday, with crowds gathering in joy as opposed to disgust. There was jubilation at almost all four corners of the street, and at times some of the celebrants have taken over the eastbound roads of North Avenue.

People could be seen giving each other high-fives and hugging, while others simply lined the sidewalks to take in the chorus of car horns that blared repeatedly.

One Baltimore resident named Joe was overcome with his elation as he told WJZ’s Mike Schuh why he came to the intersection at North and Pennsylvania Avenue to celebrate.

“The city is phenomenal right now. Right now, it’s like Baltimore, thank you for listening, thank you for everyone constantly protesting for the betterment of the good. Everyone that’s being negative needs to stop being negative, it’s so simple as smiling at a baby, to let go of the nonsense,” he said. “It’s awesome, it’s super great.” (Read more from “Celebrations Begin in Baltimore as Some React to Officers’ Charges” HERE)

Watch: Al Sharpton Gets In Physical Confrontation With Fox News Reporter

download (1)Fox News reporter Leland Vittert got into a heated — and eventually physical — confrontation with activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton, when the latter tried to keep him from questioning Democratic Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

“We can’t ask questions?” Vittert challenged her. “You are a public official and we can’t ask questions?” . . .

At the press conference, we will answer all questions,” Sharpton said. But as Vittert kept tailing them, a second man stepped between the reporter and the mayor and began pushing him away . . .

Ironically, Vittert said later that one question he didn’t get to ask Rawlings-Blake was whether or not she ordered Baltimore police not to respond to Monday’s riots with force. (Read more from “Watch: Al Sharpton Gets In Physical Confrontation With Fox News Reporter” HERE)

12-Year-Old Owns Al Sharpton: ‘You’re a Waste of Human Flesh’ [+video]

12-year-old-owns-al-sharpton-youCJ Pearson, a young black conservative making a name for himself online, has a message for Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the nation’s other professional race baiters: “If you really care about black people, you would empower black people.”

“You’re only in this business to make money, to achieve fame,” the young man says. “But we don’t want you, Al. We don’t want you, Jesse Jackson. We don’t want any of you because you’re not for us, and you’re not right.”

Pearson goes on to chide Sharpton, Jackson, et al. for characterizing tragedies such as the murder of Walter Scott as racially motivated when the events should be universally recognized as miscarriages of justice.

Revealed: What Obama Gave to Al Sharpton After Mandela Funeral

When the Rev. Al Sharpton couldn’t make it to Nelson Mandela ’s funeral in South Africa, President Barack Obama brought him back a little souvenir.

The memento, a program from the funeral, hangs on a wall in Mr. Sharpton’s nondescript offices above Midtown Manhattan.

“To Rev. Sharpton,” Mr. Obama wrote. “A fellow warrior for justice!”

Much has been made of Mr. Sharpton’s reinvention, the remaking of a local, sometimes divisive activist into a polished insider with a national TV show and a direct line to the White House.

Yet, at home in New York City, as tensions simmered last year over race, police conduct, and the deaths of Eric Garner and police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, Mr. Sharpton’s new role has been tested. (Read more about what Obama gave Al Sharpton HERE)
