Murder verdict tossed because
his mom couldn’t find a seat
New York Post, by Josh Saul    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/30/2014 2:20:29 PM     Post Reply
Meet Daniel Floyd — the luckiest “killer” in New York. The 23-year-old Brooklyn man was tried, convicted and — after the jury found he shot a rival dead at a dice game — sent to prison for 15 years to life. But the state’s highest court overturned the guilty verdict — all because Floyd’s mother couldn’t find a seat in the courtroom during jury selection. A juror who voted to convict Floyd was shocked to learn of the stunning reversal. “On a technicality like there was no room in the courtroom! That’s something new for me. I don’t think that’s right,” said the woman, who didn’t want her name used. “Oh my gosh!

Paul Ryan: Broader immigration
reform dead under Obama

Influential Rep. Paul Ryan, in the latest demonstration of distrust between the GOP and President Obama, said that broad immigration reform is dead because Republicans have “no confidence or faith” that the president will do as Congress orders on the U.S.-Mexico border. “There is just no confidence or faith that the president will faithfully discharge his duties in executing and implementing the laws as written by Congress at this time,” said Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee and current budget committee chairman. As the GOP debates limited reform this week, Ryan said that all the party will consider now is narrowly

Colbert Launches His Own ‘Angry

Sarah Palin Channel

Stephen Colbert might be a little jealous of Sarah Palin. On Tuesday night, the Comedy Central host reported on Palin’s new web-based subscription video channel before announcing his own competing operation, Stephen Colbert’s “Angry Echo Chamber.” “It’s 24/7 Palin-tainment streamed right to your phone!” Colbert said. Sure, at $9.95 per month, it costs more than Netflix, he explained, “but it’s just as good as House of Cards, with just as many threatening monologues into camera.” Echoing the FAQ section of Palin’s new site, Colbert said, “It’s a safe space where like-m

Obama Responds to Jesus
Heckler: ‘I Believe in God’

During his speech in Kansas City, Missouri Wednesday, President Barack Obama was once again confronted by some good, old-fashioned heckling. In the video of the event that streamed on the White House website, it was a bit hard to hear what the woman was screaming, but it appeared to be something along the lines of “Jesus is the Lord of Israel.” “I’m sorry, what are you hollering about?” the president said casually, letting the heckler repeat their message for the crowd. “I believe in God,” he said in response. “Thanks for the prayer. Amen. Thank you.” The Washington Post’s David

Illegal aliens in the

We’ve been told that Congress must enact amnesty to bring millions of illegal aliens “out of the shadows.” But they’re no longer in the shadows, nor even in the shade, but openly rallying in Lafayette Park across from the White House, demanding that President Obama use his pen and his telephone to give them what they want. At the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, Congress is scrambling to get out of town Thursday for a five-week summer holiday. Congress is grappling with an emergency funding bill to address the surge of aliens swarming the border. A bill by House Republicans would

The head of the Catholic League issued a scathing criticism at President Obama, posting on his group’s website an essay that pointed to all the Christians being beheaded by Muslim terrorists and asking: Doesn’t that matter to you? “Christians are being beheaded all over the Middle East because they are Christians, and those carrying out this mass murder are doing so in the name of Islam,” Bill Donohue wrote on his group’s website, Newsmax reported. “Yet you continue to say and do absolutely nothing about these unspeakable crimes. Do Christians mean so little to you?”

Washington - The United States is condemning Israel’s shelling of a U.N. school in the Gaza Strip that was sheltering displaced Palestinians. It’s the sharpest criticism the U.S. has leveled at Israel over the more than three weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza. White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan says the U.S. is also “extremely concerned” that thousands of Palestinians aren’t safe in U.N.-designated shelters in Gaza even though Israel’s military has told them to evacuate their homes. Gaza health officials say 15 people were killed Wednesday when Israeli tank shells slammed into the school.

Democrats push making labor
organizing a ´civil right´
Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/30/2014 1:52:14 PM     Post Reply
Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and John Lewis, D-Ga., plan to introduce legislation Wednesday to amend the National Labor Relations Act to make labor organizing a civil right. The change will make opposing unionization bids legally perilous for businesses. The NLRA already protects the right to form and join a union. Ellison and Lewis´ legislation would dramatically expand the powers individual workers have under the act by allowing them to sue their employer in federal court under the Civil Rights Act. The bill would also entitle workers filing lawsuits "to remedies like punitive and compensatory damages," according to a Tuesday press release. Currently most

Donetsk, Ukraine - A top rebel chief in east Ukraine has banned fighters from swearing, saying it "spiritually demeans us and will lead our army to defeat", according to a document published on a Twitter account used by insurgents. Igor Strelkov, the self-declared defence minister of the unrecognised Donetsk People´s Republic said swearing in public places by rebel gunmen would be considered "a serious disciplinary infraction". "Swearwords of non-Russian origin were used by enemies of Rus to defile what we hold sacred," read an official order dated from Monday -- the 1,026th anniversary of the adoption of Christianity by

A nonpartisan congressional investigation has concluded that management failures by the Obama administration set the stage for the computer woes that paralyzed President Barack Obama´s health care program website last fall, officials told The Associated Press. (Snip) Investigators found that the administration kept changing the contractors´ marching orders for the HealthCare.gov website, creating widespread confusion and leading to tens of millions of dollars in additional costs.

Democrat Senators Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Pryor of Arkansas have both now warned Obama to not "take any steps without the approval of Congress" when it comes to dealing with the current illegal immigration crisis. “I’m not for government by executive order. He needs to have statutory authority before he acts,” said Pryor. Meanwhile, via Politico, a spokeswoman for Hagan said, “this is a problem that needs to be solved legislatively and not through executive action.” Additionally, Democrat Senators Landrieu of Louisiana and Begich of Alaska are also urging Obama to act with restraint. “We want him

DOJ Sued for Records of Obama´s Effort
to Grant Mass Clemency to Criminals

With little more than two years left in the Obama administration, President Obama seems to have given up on any pretense of abiding by his oath of his office as he seeks to accomplish his leftist goals. Perhaps the most obvious example is illegal alien amnesty. At first, the administration tried negotiating with Congress. When that failed, Obama simply nullified the law and implemented “deferred action” (amnesty) for young illegal aliens and virtually anyone else who had made it across the border and hadn’t gotten caught for doing something else terribly criminal. Congress, including a complicit Republican leadership, watched, complained

In Kansas City today, President Obama complained that Republicans continued to oppose his agenda in Congress. “C’mon and help out a bit,” he said, addressing the GOP. “Stop bein’ mad all the time. Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

The catechism of an "indispensable partnership" with India that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry repeated during the course of a rambling 5000-word speech on Tuesday cannot cover up the loss of faith that has crept into the relationship between the two countries. Kerry was speaking at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. hours before his departure for New Delhi as the head of the U.S. delegation in its fifth annual Strategic Dialogue with India. Even without the added obstacle of having to reach out to an Indian leader that it had visibly snubbed for nearly a decade,

  



The Five Strangest Rules in Baseball

At 240 pages, Major League Baseball´s rule book is dense, and it is only growing denser. Last winter alone, the league added three new rules and amended six others—and that doesn´t even count the two rules it has amended since this season began. But for all its love of new legislation, MLB has shown little inclination to delete rules that have long ceased being relevant. As a result, the rule book has become baseball´s version of the tax code, dotted with obscurities and oddities whose existence are unknown even to many players and managers. On the off chance that "Official

Newly released emails by Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the tea party targeting scandal, show “deep animus towards conservatives, which she refers to as ‘—holes,’” according to a House committee. The emails were among a batch of new evidence the House Ways and Means Committee turned over Wednesday to the Department of Justice (DOJ) in support of an investigation of criminal wrongdoing at the IRS. “Despite the serious investigation and evidence this Committee has undertaken into the IRS’s targeting of individuals for their beliefs, there is no indication that DOJ is taking this matter seriously,” Rep.

MOSCOW — Russia, facing the toughest round of Western sanctions imposed since the Ukraine crisis erupted, has adopted a nonchalant public stance, with President Vladimir V. Putin emphasizing the importance of self-reliance and a new poll released Tuesday indicating a “What, me worry?” attitude among the bulk of the population. But beneath that calm facade, there is growing alarm in Russia that the festering turmoil in Ukraine and the new round of far more punitive sanctions — announced Tuesday by both European nations and the United States — will have an impact on Russia’s relations with the West for years to

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W. Bush, unleashed on Republicans and conservatives Tuesday who he says “helped” Democrats and the White House by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader
