Paul Harvey’s Posthumous Retort
To ‘Hands-Up’ Hysteria

WND Exclusive — Cops called ‘sir, pig, diplomat, bum, flirt, grouch, careless, infallible, coward, bully’...

There undoubtedly are some really bad cops; just ask the taxpayers in Denver who over recent months have paid out millions of dollars to victims who have been beaten, pummeled and throttled by officers in uniform.

But the reputations of the men in blue recently have been attacked by activists harshly critical of the outcomes of confrontations between officers and citizens in New York and Ferguson, Missouri.

Those protests, however, have triggered a backlash. In fact, there’s a new T-shirt that says “Breath Easy – Don’t Break the law,” a reference to the Eric Garner case in New York that prompted the “I can’t breathe” slogan.

They also have prompted the recall to memory of famed radio commentator Paul Harvey’s essay on police.

Harvey said: “A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact, the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policeman misfit that uniform, and that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.

“What is a policeman?

“He of all men is at once the most needed, and the most wanted, a strangely nameless creature who is sir to his face and pig or worse behind his back. He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won, but, if a policeman is neat, he’s conceited, if he’s careless he’s a bum, if he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt, if he’s not, he’s a grouch.

“He must make instant decisions that would require months for a lawyer but if he hurries he’s careless, if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with diagnoses. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

“The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run and hit where it doesn’t hurt.

“He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform, and without being brutal. If you hit him he’s a coward, if he hits you, he’s a bully. The policeman from a single human hair must be able to describe the crime, the weapon the criminal, and tell you where the criminal is hiding but, if he catches the criminal he’s lucky, if he doesn’t he’s a dunce.

“He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache to build a case against some felon who will get dealt out by some shameless shamus. The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”

Among the comments posted on the YouTube posting of the recording was one from Jeff Perry: “Well said.”

Jean Mitchell said, “Fantastic and so true Mr. Harvey.”

Tony S.O. said, “Outstanding.”

And from someone who probably is from a younger generation came: “Who is this Mr. Harvey. He is amazing.”

On the Paul Harvey website, Paul Harvey Jr. writes about how his father loved America.

At the time of his death in 2009, TV Guide said: “Known for his staccato voice and trademark delivery of ‘The Rest of the Story’ (a feature through which he anecdotally recalled the lives of famous folk), Harvey’s career as a nationally broadcast radio man begin 1951, when he launched his ‘News and Comment’ program on ABC Radio Networks.”

The report said: “In 1970, Harvey famously reversed his stance on the Vietnam War, broadcasting this message to Richard M. Nixon: ‘Mr. President, I love you … but you’re wrong [to expand the war].’ Harvey’s urging of the president to pull out of Vietnam elicited an onslaught of letters and phone calls, including one from the White House.

“At the peak of his career, Harvey reached more than 24 million listeners on more than 1,200 radio stations, and his syndicated column was carried by 300 newspapers. In 2000, he signed a new 10-year contract with ABC Radio Networks. He was forced off the airwaves briefly in 2001 by a virally weakened vocal cord.”

He received the presidential Medal of Freedom and was an inductee in the Radio Hall of Fame....

Tumbling Oil Prices To Unleash Social Unrest Across The Globe

By J. D. Heyes, Natural News — Americans are breathing a small sigh of relief these days every time they pull into a gas station to fill up: Prices at the pump are the lowest they have been in years, and what's even better is that a global oil glut fed in large part by massive new U.S. reserves in shale oil fields is expected to keep prices down for some time to come. However, the collapse in the price of crude oil is also having some negative effects, and they will begin to manifest themselves more and more in the coming months in the form of rising social tension and unrest, say experts, especially in countries where oil keeps their economies afloat....

VIDEO: Intruder Breaks into Pastor’s Home,
Learns He Messed with the Wrong Man

By Jennifer Burke, TPNN — An intruder broke into the home of Tom Vineyard, who is the pastor of Windsor Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. This man learned the hard way that he chose the wrong home to attempt to rob and paid the price with his life.

In fact, he encourages those who attend his church to protect himself, and practices what he preaches. According to KOTV, Staff Sgt. Billy Payne, from the Oklahoma City Police Department, said, “The call came in from the son that his father had shot, someone had broken in the home, and later the suspect while trying to exit the home was deceased.”...

Rubio: Obama Policy Will Allow Cuban Officials
To ‘Line Their Own Pockets’

By Susan Jones, CNS NEWS — The Cuban government will take a lesson from China in dealing with the United States, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Sunday. "They are going to use all the benefits of access to the U.S. markets to...line their own pockets, the government," Rubio told NBC's "Meet the Press." But while government officials get richer, the people of Cuba won't be any freer or better off. "You talk about China as an example," Rubio told NBC's Chuck Todd. "We re-established both commercial and diplomatic relations with China in the 1970s. Certainly the Chinese economy has grown, but politically, there are more repressed than they were 20 or 30 years ago. There’s no freedom of religion, no freedom of speech, no free access to the internet, no elections, no political parties....

Jesus Privately Briefing His Inner Circle of Disciples
Regarding The Last Days
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. ~ Matthew 24:3-14
