Who Fatally Shot Teenager in Ferguson, Mo.
New York Times, by Alan Blinder & Timothy Williams    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/15/2014 10:36:29 AM     Post Reply
Ferguson, Mo. - The police in Ferguson broke their weeklong silence on Friday and identified the officer involved in the fatal shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager. The Ferguson police chief, Thomas Jackson, said the officer was Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the force who had no disciplinary actions taken against him. Chief Jackson said Mr. Wilson had been alerted to a robbery at a convenience store shortly before the encounter with the teenager, Michael Brown, 18, who was walking home from a store on Saturday when he was shot. Mr. Brown’s death had ignited several days of protests that have been quashed by

The Secret Service said it is "aware" of a photo that appeared to show an image of an ISIS flag in front of the White House. If authentic, the photo showed a hand holding up an image of a flag for ISIS (also known as ISIL or Islamic State), displayed on a smartphone, on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House fence. That area, closed off to street traffic, is frequented by thousands of tourists every day. It was tweeted from an apparently pro-ISIS Twitter handle @sunna_rev on Aug. 9. "We have an intelligence division whose mission is to assess information

DERRY, N.H. —Like he did for Kelly Ayotte ahead of her primary win for the U.S. Senate in 2010, U.S. Sen. John McCain will head to New Hampshire to told a town hall meeting for Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown. The town hall, which was announced by Brown´s campaign on Tuesday, will be held Monday night in Derry. It is unclear how much Brown is helping with branding by appearing with McCain, the two time winner of the state´s presidential primary. After all, those who were into McCain are probably with Brown in his Republican primary anyway. But the event will

When the going gets tough, the tough are supposed to get going. But not in Obama World. Not in Hillary World, either. (Snip) An official spokesman for the State Department, which imagines it’s the keeper of the nation’s conscience, suggested that when the going gets tough, the tough run home. Maybe the world is just too dangerous for Americans to get out and about. “Hard decisions must be made when it comes to whether the United States should operate in dangerous overseas locations.”

The last time she saw her father was more than four years ago when he bid her farewell for better job opportunities in the United States. On Thursday, 14-year-old Elizita hugged her father tight at Newark Liberty International Airport as tears rolled down both their cheeks. “I’m emotional; I don’t have words,” said her father, F.

Politico Pity Party: Obama Is

Does anyone remember a media report expressing sympathy for former President George W. Bush when adverse events happened during his Crawford, Texas "vacations"? (Given that he and Laura lived there, calling a visit to your place back home hardly seems to qualify as some kind of "vacation") Well, Thursday evening, Politico´s Carrie Budoff Brown took pity on President Obama for his "vacation from hell." Excerpts follow the jump. Poor guy. He´s not going to come back to White House refreshed (bolds are mine): Obama´s ´vacation from hell´. President Barack Obama really wanted to take a vacation. But then the world

Obama lifts ban on Libyans attending flight

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Remember the aftermath of 9/11 when investigators made the chilling discovery that American flight instructors had unwittingly taught the Arab hijackers how to fly jumbo jets like the ones they plowed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, killing some 3,000 innocents? Turns out, President Reagan worried about terrorist hijackers using airplanes as weapons way back in 1983. He banned Libyans from taking flight lessons or nuclear studies in the United States. Now, believe it or not, President Obama is lifting that ban because, aides say, post-Gaddafi Libya and its relations with the United States are "normalized."

Calculating Hillary Gets the Math Wrong

Picture the ad, either in the Democratic primaries or from a liberal independent candidate: Hillary Clinton -- a pro-Wall Street buckraker, a foreign policy interventionist -- championing George W. Bush´s invasion of Iraq and looking like a lukewarm supporter of President Barack Obama. Clinton´s break last week with some of Obama´s unpopular foreign policies, in an interview with my colleague Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic, is going to cause her political problems. It makes her look calculating -- probably unfairly -- when she already faces some skepticism about her authenticity. And her hawkish, interventionist stance is at odds with the

SAN ANTONIO –Step into the Hangar Hotel in Fredericksburg and relive the 1940s, but with today´s amenities. The hotel recently was named among the quirkiest in the nation by USA Today. Equipped with its own tarmac, the hotel represents the nostalgia of World War II. "As soon as you walk through our front doors, it´s really like stepping back into time," said Kim Seavey, a receptionist at the Hangar Hotel. "Pilots can fly their planes literally right to the front of the hotel, which is like parking their car." The hotel operates from the Gillespie County Airport in Fredericksburg, and

Wonder of wonders: The Washington press corps woke up. Finally, mainstream journalists are onto Barack Obama´s game. Their breaking-news shocker? Turns out all that "hope and change" stuff was just hot air. A new report from the D.C.-based press shows that -- gasp -- the White House is infested with Beltway lobbyists. Good morning, sleepyheads! According to Politico´s analysis published on Monday, the "Obama administration has hired about 70 previously registered corporate, trade association and for-hire lobbyists. And many of these former lobbyists work at the highest levels of government." Wait, there´s more. The "most transparent administration ever" is playing

EU foreign ministers are holding an emergency meeting in Brussels on Friday to discuss plans to arm Iraq´s Kurds against an extremist insurgency. France and the US have already begun to supply weapons to the Kurds, whose Peshmerga fighters are trying to halt an advance by Islamic State militants. On Thursday, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki resigned and conceded power to Haider al-Abadi, Iraq´s deputy speaker. Meanwhile, the governor of Dohuk province has warned of a "genocide".

Here’s a microcosm of the relationship between state and citizen: We know the names of the nine people charged with felonies in the Ferguson looting, but not the name of the police officer at the center of the case. The government is all discretion when it comes to one of its own. True, there have been threats against the police officer in question — but if any municipal institution is positioned to defend its members, it is the police. And are there no threats against private individuals who are arrested or investigated? Are there no threats against people in prisons?

Terror group Boko Haram are feared to have abducted almost 100 boys and men in a raid on a village in Nigeria, just months after the militants captured more than 200 schoolgirls. Witnesses said fighters loaded their captives onto trucks before driving away from the remote area in the northeast of the west African country. The bloodthirsty extremists, who aim to reinstate a medieval Islamic caliphate in religiously mixed Nigeria, are likely to have kidnapped the boys in order to force them to fight.

Hillary Rodham Clinton hugged out her differences with President Obama on Wednesday night, but she may need to save some of that affection for disenchanted liberals who fear the Democratic party’s 2016 front-runner is acting more like a thinly veiled neoconservative. After her harsh critique of Mr. Obama’s foreign policy in an interview published last week, the two talked by phone Tuesday and met in person Wednesday at a private party on Martha’s Vineyard. The White House said the president and first lady “were happy to have the chance to spend time” with Mrs. Clinton.

Searching for a Palestinian Dr. King

Posted By: Drive- 8/15/2014 8:50:31 AM     Post Reply
There are some nonviolent Palestinians, but they get crowded out by Hamas—and the Israelis, who aren’t exactly nonviolent either. For my entire adult life I’ve heard this same question time and time again: “Why isn’t there a Palestinian Martin Luther King?” Or in the alternative: “Why isn’t there a Palestinian Gandhi?” Some have posed this with the sincere intention of being helpful. Others have raised it more as a way to further their own narrative that all Palestinians are violent. Regardless of the questioner’s motivation, it’s worth asking: could a Palestinian Dr. King actually lead Palestinians to the “promised land”? Or is

WASHINGTON — Gideons Bibles are going back into Navy lodges. The Navy on Thursday ordered the Bibles returned to rooms and said it is reviewing a decision by the Navy Exchange to remove them from its worldwide network of military hotels. Atheists had cheered a victory after a complaint prompted the exchange to begin moving the Bibles to its lost-and-found bins this summer, but the Navy said the decision was made without consulting senior leadership. “That decision and our religious accommodation policies with regard to the placement of religious materials are under review,” Navy spokesman Cmdr. Ryan Perry wrote in an email to

According to a new report by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute, Mudallal, told the Lebanese TV station Mayadeen TV by Skype that some journalists “would focus on filming the places from where missiles were launched.” “Thus, they were collaborating with the occupation,” said Mudallal, the head of foreign relations in the Hamas Information Ministry. “These journalists were deported from the Gaza Strip.

Barack Obama is playing a dangerous game of semantics with the America people right now, promising that there will be "no boots on the ground" in Iraq even as teams of "advisers" (including US Marines) yesterday landed for the first time on Mt Sinjar. Chuck Hagel, the US defence secretary was "crystal" on this point last week, telling reporters that "under no circumstances would he [Mr Obama] be sending American troops, boots on the ground, back into combat in Iraq".

A picture of President Obama dancing at a party in Martha´s Vineyard at the exact moment that police and protestors were confronting each other in Ferguson, MO has been deleted from the photographer´s Instagram account. The photographer, Elizabeth Cecil, removed the photos without explanation. But the Washington Times has a pretty good reason. Twitter exploded about the photos with many making the comment that it was inappropriate for the president to be dancing while they were rioting in Ferguson. A Martha’s Vineyard photographer quietly deleted photographs of President Obama dancing during a birthday celebration on the island for Ann Jordan.

Suspected Islamist Boko Haram fighters have abducted dozens of boys and men in a raid on a remote village in northeast Nigeria, loading them onto trucks and driving them off, witnesses who fled the violence said on Friday. (Snip) As many as 97 people are unaccounted for, the villagers said. Boko Haram, a name that loosely translates as "Western education is a sin" in the local Hausa language of north-central Africa, is part of a jihadist Islamist organization that has been linked to al-Qaeda and is responsible for a series of increasingly brazen attacks and kidnappings in Nigeria, currently the richest country in Africa by GDP.

Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson is taking the federal government to court. Attkisson, a senior independent contributor to The Daily Signal, filed the lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services to obtain information about the troubled Obamacare rollout last year. The former CBS News reporter and Emmy award-winning journalist won’t be going alone; the legal group Judicial Watch will represent her in court. The lawsuit follows four unsuccessful Freedom of Information Act requests. In October 2013 and again in June of this year, Attkisson requested information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

A disgruntled ex-cop carrying a loaded gun bypassed metal detectors at a federal building in Philadelphia and entered the FBI’s office there this week after flashing a fake police badge and his inactive ID card, according to sources and court records obtained by ABC News. The FBI ultimately took the man’s gun after becoming suspicious, but “he could’ve shot up half the office by that point,” as one law enforcement expert put it after reading the court records. “This latest report of a security breach at a federal building is concerning,” the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Sen.

The UK would "consider favourably" any request for arms from the Kurds in their battle with extremists in Iraq, the foreign secretary has confirmed. Philip Hammond described militant group Islamic State (IS), which is fighting the Kurds and has seized large parts of northern Iraq, as a "terrible threat".

Outside the US, throughout the Western world, anti-Semitism is becoming a powerful social and political force. And its power is beginning to have a significant impact on Israel’s relations with other democracies. (Snip) In Sydney, Australia, Jewish families received a triple blow last week when Jewish children on a chartered school bus were assaulted by eight anti-Semitic drunken teenagers. The first shock was that their children, some as young as five, were terrorized on their school bus. The second shock was that the bus driver made an unscheduled stop to allow the anti-Semites to board the bus and harass the children. The third shock was
