The Department of Justice has 40 FBI agents canvassing Ferguson, Missouri to learn whether a white police officer should be charged with a ´civil rights´ crime for shooting an unarmed black teen, the agency confirmed on Tuesday. [Snip] The DOJ is conducting interviews with an eye toward determining if a federal case will be made of the shooting, regardless of whether the state of Missouri charges Wilson with murder or manslaughter. It´s conceivable that he might not be charged for killing the teen, but still face a trial in federal court for violating his civil rights.



CNN Anchor: ‘Why Not Use Water

CNN International anchor Rosemary Church wondered why the Ferguson police department aren’t using water cannons instead of indiscriminate tear gas on protesters and rioters — prompting an incredulous look from her co-anchor, who was clearly more aware of America’s history of race relations. Church made the comments in the early hours of Tuesday morning, as police battled armed rioters with clouds of tear gas and volleys of rubber bullets and stun grenades. “Why are they using this strategy?” she asked. “Why the use of tear gas, stun grenades? Why not perhaps use water cannon? At least it’s not going to

Iraqi Christian and Yazidi representatives will gather in Geneva on Tuesday to urge the U.N.’s top human rights body to hold an urgent meeting to discuss the plight of their imperiled communities. The Human Rights Council has largely ignored the issue up until now. The rally comes 10 days after a coalition of human rights advocacy groups and lawmakers from several countries urged U.N. high commissioner for human rights Navi Pillay to call for an emergency HRC session on the deadly jihadist campaign against Iraq’s religious minorities. As of early Tuesday the coalition had received no reply, confirmed U.N. Watch

As the media-sanctioned rioting, bloodshed and looting continue in Ferguson, Missouri, evidence is emerging that police shooting victim Michael Brown wasn’t the upstanding citizen that many on the Left have claimed him to be. All of this is happening as mobs have been attacking cops with Molotov cocktails and destroying community infrastructure. Some blacks in the region are reportedly randomly assaulting non-blacks as collective payback for what happened to Brown. Looting and property destruction are rampant. Scores of people have been arrested. Aircraft were ordered to fly at least 3,000 feet over Ferguson airspace after police said their helicopters were

Jerry Seinfeld freaks out after
his vintage Porsche is almost struck

Jerry Seinfeld exchanged words with another motorist in the Hamptons on Monday after she nearly backed into his prized wheels. The funnyman was sitting on a bench in East Hampton, across the street from his rare 1973 Porsche 911 RSR, when he spotted another car backing up to park in front his vehicle. But as that car got a little too close for Seinfeld’s comfort, he ran across the street and yelled at the 60-year-old female motorist to stop. The woman appeared to be frightened as she hit the brakes, and stepped out of her vehicle momentarily to hear Seinfeld’s angry words.



Showdown at Waggoner Ranch

FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY THE 520,000-acre Waggoner Ranch has been an inseparable part of the culture and fabric of the Red River country west of Wichita Falls—and of Texas itself. It is the nation’s biggest ranch within the confines of a single fence, a spread so vast that it extends across six counties and covers more than eight hundred square miles. On the map of Texas it appears as a great emptiness south of Vernon, occupied only by the thin strip of U.S. 183/283. From the highway, its pastures seem timeless and impregnable. And so they were, for a

Talk about deja vu Trayvon Martin spin all over again! I could hardly believe my eyes. During a discussion on CNN about the shooting of Michael Brown by a white police officer, in the background was a photo of Brown in a school graduation cap and gown. Give me a break! Where was the picture from the surveillance video of the 6´4”, 290 pound thuggish Brown grabbing the store clerk by the throat after stealing cigars? The DOJ has advised news outlets not to broadcast the video of Brown assaulting the store clerk and robbing the store, claiming that it

A wildfire burning near Yosemite National Park is threatening 500 homes, has triggered 13,000 evacuation orders and prompted the Madera County sheriff to declare a local emergency. The fast-moving Junction fire had burned 1,200 acres and was 0% contained overnight, prompting local school officials to close five campuses Tuesday. Authorities have also closed California 41 leading in and out of Yosemite National Park and have sent out an additional 2,500 phone calls warning residents they may have to leave if the fire spreads in their direction.

The ranks of non-teachers - such as administrators, counselors, teacher aides and cafeteria workers - has swelled 130 percent since 1970 and they now make up 50 percent of all public school employees according to a new study, The Hidden Half: School Employees Who Don´t Teach. Looking at data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the Thomas B. Fordham Institute found that the growth of non-teaching staff has greatly outpaced student growth over the past four decades. From 1970 to 2010, the number of students grew by 8.6 percent, while the number of non-teaching personnel increased by 130 percent. Non-teachers

In a new video by RickPAC, the governor’s new federal political committee, the charges are not about what Rick Perry might have done but what the Travis County district attorney did do. She drove drunk in April 2013 and was belligerent after her arrest. Perry’s defense, as outlined on Monday and reported here, is all about vilifying District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. The idea being promoted is that anyone would have done what Perry did. He vetoed $7.5 million meant to fund the anti-corruption unit that is part of her office. Perry’s high profile defense team basically laid that strategy out

LONDON — As West African nations grappled with the worst-ever outbreak of the Ebola virus, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday that the death toll had exceeded 1,200 and announced increased efforts to forestall severe food shortages in areas isolated by quarantines. (Snip) The latest figures from the W.H.O. offered a familiar, grim picture of the spread of Ebola, which international health specialists say has been outpacing containment efforts since its identification in West Africa in March. The only glimmer of relief, albeit faint, came when Reuters quoted Liberia’s information minister, Lewis Brown, as saying that three African doctors

I know Democrats can’t be embarrassed. When I refer to “an embarrassment of Democrats,” I am trying to capture the natural reaction of average Americans to the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the embarrassment of Democrats (as I call them) seeking higher office this November. Among them is one Alison Lundergran Grimes. Grimes seeks to knock off Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell from reelection to the seat he holds representing the great state of Kentucky. When it comes to public policy, McConnell is a serious guy. He is a long-time defender of the speech rights of citizens that

A government watchdog group has sued 12 federal agencies for allegedly withholding emails and other documents, in the latest episode in which the Obama administration is being challenged over its transparency. The conservative-leaning Cause of Action wants the documents in order to see whether agencies are being forced to channel basic public-information requests through the White House, so that politically sensitive material can be screened. The group filed the suit Monday in a District of Columbia federal court. The lawsuit says the agencies "stonewalled" the organization -- and claims the White House is "influencing" their response to record requests. “Accountable

The Internal Revenue Service has launched a probe of the president of a subsidized apartment complex in Southeast Washington, carting off boxes of financial documents and inspecting computer records related to her business and political activities, according to a criminal summons and the building’s current property manager. In the summons, the IRS demanded a large quantity of records related to Park Southern Apartments, a sprawling set of towers along the District’s southern border. The complex became the subject of scrutiny after a Washington Post report detailing its dilapidated conditions and its owner’s default on a $3 million city-backed loan.

Geraldo Rivera wasted no time Tuesday afternoon lighting dynamite under an Outnumbered panel and setting the thing off.

Move over, War on Women, there´s a new war in town. On the August 18 edition of MSNBC´s Hardball, contributor Michelle Bernard warned there is a "war on black men" in the United States, as evidence both by the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and persistent criticism of President Barack Obama from Republicans. What´s more, Bernard insisted, there would be a "genocide" of young black men unless the problem were seriously addressed to her satisfaction. Suffice it to say, Hardball host Chris Matthews at no point called out Ms. Bernard for her heated rhetoric. [see relevant transcript

For his first term and re-election, ideological differences dominated the debate surrounding President Obama. (Snip) His recent interview with The Economist brings into stark relief Obama’s fundamental lack of understanding of the art of governing and how America’s federal system operates. In this interview, Obama expounds on his frustration that business keeps lobbying for special treatment. Is he serious? Can he really be that obtuse? It is a mind-boggling comment. Everyone lobbies for special favors in Washington — it’s the town’s main industry. Business, labor, environmentalists, cities, states — you name the interest and I can guarantee they have their hand out.
