Due To Ramadan, Embassy In Indonesia Celebrates 4th Of July Early

The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, celebrated our Independence Day on June 4th instead of July 4th, because it falls smack dab in the middle of the ever changing month of Ramadan, and US diplomats decided they did not want to offend. This year Ramadan starts on June 18th. Last year it started June 28th, in 2010 on August 11.

Ambassador to Indonesia Robert O. Blake and US Ambassador to ASEAN Nina Hachigian presided over the festivities, which involved brass band renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya.


He also praised Indonesia’s performance as a fully functioning democracy, aiming for further collaboration between the two countries in the years to come.

“The US will continue to support Indonesia in the future through its democratic achievements. Democracy is an American value which we have championed since [the country’s birth in] 1776,” Blake told the crowd during the festivities at his residence near Taman Suropati, Central Jakarta, on Thursday.

U.S. dhimmitude at its very best.

St Louis Black Panther Members Plotted To Bomb Police Station and Kill Officials

The racial divide has grown to a huge chasm, thanks to Barack Obama. So we have this: two members of the hate group the New Black Panther Party plotting a terrorist attack against police and others.

Two men admitted in federal court here Tuesday that they plotted to blow up a police station, vehicles and perhaps other targets, including the St. Louis County prosecutor and Ferguson police chief.

Olajuwon Ali Davis, 23, and Brandon Orlando Baldwin, 24, each pleaded guilty of four explosives and gun charges that will carry seven-year prison terms when they are sentenced Aug. 31.

The pair met in August in Ferguson, during the protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18, by then-Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. They started talking about buying guns and organizing protesters to "be like an army" and fight back against police, their plea agreement says.

For weeks as federal agents and police tracked them and their calls and texts, Baldwin and Davis discussed using Baldwin, who was at the time an employee of Cabela's in Hazelwood, to buy guns for felons and others. And Baldwin admitted that he did buy three guns. They also talked about buying bombs. The men mentioned Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and then-Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson as targets. Neither was harmed. Law enforcement sources and neighbors said the home of both had been closely guarded.

They also intended to bomb an unspecified police station to disrupt communications, according to the plea.

Car bombs.

Baldwin also goes by Brandon Muhammad. Davis as Brother Ali. Note those last names.
