After bloody weekend of 16 shootings
and 19 wounded, cops arrest only 2 as
number of city shooting victims spikes

New York Daily News, by Barry Paddock , Rocco Parascandola*

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 9:22:58 AM

The tales of one violent weekend in New York are by turns familiar, surreal and heartbreaking. And they’re growing in number this year. There’s Deleta Crawford, paralyzed from the waist down by a stray bullet after grocery shopping. Ibrahim Diabate, guilty only of working on his jump shot. Renee Shaw, one of four wounded at a joyous neighborhood picnic. The three were carrying on their normal lives until in an instant they became gunshot victims. There were drive-by shootings, and gang disputes, and bullets fired through a third-floor apartment window. Three more victims, in a particularly cruel twist, were targeted

NY Daily News must be delighted that it endorsed the Marxist DeBlasio for mayor. The News, like the NY Times, got what it asked for in supporting DeBlasio, the mayor who just gave $40 million to the Central Park Five thugs, proving that vicious crime does pay.

Next month will mark exactly two years since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. And a week from this Friday, Fox News will present a special documentary about the attacks, speaking with security operatives who were there, titled 13 Hours at Benghazi. The documentary is based on the upcoming book 13 Hours, written by journalism professor Mitchell Zuckoff and the Annex Security Team. Bret Baier will host the hour-long special, in which he will speak in an exclusive interview with three American security operatives who were on the ground in Benghazi when the attack happened. The documentary will

Jindal Suing Feds Over Common Core

Opening yet another front in his increasingly complex battle against Common Core, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is suing the federal government over the education standards. Jindal’s suit claims that the government, by using federal education grants to encourage the standards’ adoption, has illegally infringed upon states’ sovereignty in the issue of education. “The proponents of Common Core will tell you that it’s simply about one test and about standards, but that’s a ruse. Common Core is about controlling curriculum,” Jindal said in a press release announcing the lawsuit. “These are big government elitists that believe they know better than parents

14 arrested in federal gun-trafficking sting

More than a dozen people face federal gun charges after a monthslong Chicago-area sting operation led investigators to confiscate more than 100 guns, officials said today. Fourteen people, 12 of them convicted felons, were charged in the investigation, which involved the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and several other agencies and included the use of three confidential informants who bought shotguns and handguns from those charged, prosecutors said in a news release today. Of those charged, nine were arrested Tuesday, and three already were in state custody, according to the release. Among the firearms confiscated were 17

What is termed “Social Media” can be a vast desert of sorts: an endless vista of parched and barren land, interspersed at sparse intervals by the occasional refreshing oasis. Negotiating Facebook’s plethora of silly cat memes and the photographs of another’s impending supper are the spiritual equivalent of a diet of Splenda packets – a mix of the vapid and narcissistic elements of human endeavor, writ small. A man’s “timeline” can be a window to his soul and speaks volumes concerning the first things of his being: an ethereal “selfie” delivered for the benefit of disinterested bystanders and perhaps historians

Intel believes 300 Americans
fighting with Islamic State,
posing threat to U.S.
Washington Times (D.C.), by Maggie Ybarra    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/27/2014 3:00:36 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials. Officials say concern is widespread in Washington that radicalized foreign fighters could return to the homeland and commit terrorist attacks with skills acquired overseas, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information. Those concerns were heightened by the disclosure Tuesday that a California man was killed fighting

Researchers: Unemployment
Rate Higher than Reported

The media just can´t seem to understand why Americans won´t join them in celebrating the Obama economy. There are two reasons for this disconnect. The first is that Washington DC is a booming Emerald City. Thanks to government largesse using money stolen from taxpayers, the skies are filled with construction cranes and the money flows like wine. The second reason is that unemployment numbers are pure BS; we all know it and so too does science: This problem dates back to a 1994 redesign of the survey when it went from paper-based to computer-based, although neither the researchers nor anyone

Ice cream magnate on course

Ice cream magnate and State Treasurer Doug Ducey has won the Republican primary to stand for the next governor of Arizona, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Ducey, who started Cold Stone Creamery in Arizona and built it into a national brand before selling the company in 2007, won the primary following a campaign focusing on his blend of government and business experience. He has been state treasurer for the last four years, serving as the chief steward of Arizona´s finances during a period that included the collapse of the housing market in the

Even the late "positive thinking" avatar Norman Vincent Peale would have a tough slog finding optimism over Atlantic City´s current state, what with gaming revenues running about half of what they were eight years ago and three casinos set to turn out their lights by mid-September. But everything is relative. Compared with 50 years ago this week, the town is Las Vegas, Paris and Rio de Janeiro combined. The resort´s post-World War II decline was exacerbated by what should have been a triumph: Atlantic City had won the right to host the Democratic National Convention. For four days, beginning Aug.

Christine Lagarde, the chief of the International Monetary Fund, was placed under official investigation for negligence in a French corruption probe that dates back to her days as France’s finance minister. After a fourth round of questioning before magistrates on Wednesday, Lagarde said she would return to her work in Washington later in the day and said in a statement the decision was “without basis.” She is the third IMF managing director in a decade to face legal troubles. She and her former chief of staff face questions about their role in a 400 million-euro ($531 million) payment to a

CA State Assembly Approves Bill
Requiring Fake Guns To Be
Brightly Painted
Breitbart California, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/27/2014 1:38:56 PM     Post Reply
On August 26 the California Assembly passed SB199, requiring fake guns to be brightly painted so police know they are not real if a kid or a criminal points one at them. SB199 was born in the wake of the October 23 shooting in which Breitbart News reported that Santa Rosa, CA, police shot and killed 13-year-old Andy Lopez after he refuse to drop a gun that turned out to be a replica. According to SFGate, SB199 "was introduced by [state] senator Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles)." It has the support of assemblyman Mark Levine (D-Rafael), who says, "Horrific things

DEERFIELD, Va.— An Air Force fighter jet based in Massachusetts crashed in the mountains of western Virginia on Wednesday, shaking the ground and frightening residents, and officials said the pilot´s fate was unknown. No injuries were reported on the ground as authorities located the crash site through heavy smoke on a mountainside. The pilot of the single-seat F-15C was with the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard in Westfield, Maj. Matthew Mutti said. The jet was on a standard training exercise to receive a system upgrade and had no munition onboard, said Mutti, from Barnes Air National

Who imagined that the Obama administration´s effort to make school lunches more nutritious (but less delicious) would encourage children to become little community organizers? The U.S. Agriculture Department has found an upside to all those "healthy" school lunches that students refuse to eat: It says schools can use the plate waste as a "learning opportunity" to turn young students into "civic-minded, community-conscious adults." A blog on the USDA website explains that an elementary school in Northern Virginia is now donating untouched food to a local food pantry. "The school’s Eco Team, run by sixth graders, ensures their fellow

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers. The 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House´s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out. A Virginia legionnaire who served in the U.S. Marine Corps told MailOnline that ´a small group of Obama´s admirers – and there are some here – sat near the front and tried to generate applause

Texas Governor Rick Perry has reportedly aligned himself with two of the most infamous Republican establishment operatives known for trashing conservatives. Perry is working with Henry Barbour, whom conservatives want the Republican National Committee to censure for his group´s smearing of conservatives in the Mississippi Senate runoff, and Steve Schmidt, who has elevated his profile by maligning conservatives, especially former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Politico´s Maggie Haberman reported on Tuesday that Schmidt, the infamous hack from Sen.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Ogletree, a renowned legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the state of affairs following Brown’s funeral as being “just like the assassination of” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. “This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till,

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!

He lived in California before he traveled to Syria earlier this year to join other Islamic State terrorists. But his heartbroken cousin only remembers a humble, kind man — not a militant.
