Detroit police chief gives credit to
armed citizens for drop in crime

Detroit News [MI], by George Hunter

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 7/16/2014 4:47:21 PM

Fed up with crime, some armed Detroiters have developed itchy trigger-fingers — and Police Chief James Craig said lawbreakers are getting the message. (Snip) Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings. Craig attributed the drop to better police work and criminals being reluctant to prey on citizens who may be carrying guns. “Criminals are getting the message that good Detroiters are armed and will use that weapon,” said Craig, who has repeatedly said he believes armed citizens deter

´The proof is in the pudding.´ The mis-named, ´´progressives,´´ always continue to ignore facts even when the facts presented are crystal clear to everyone else.

Terribly slanted article. Author presents the gun control crowds position that contradicts the facts but doesn´t mention Lott. I suppose journalism today can´t report the news without the propaganda.

Too bad there was no good guy with a gun around when Mr. Utash was getting the snot kicked out of him.

Utash is the pick-up driver who unavoidably hit a black kid who darted into the street. When Utash did the right and lawfully required thing of stopping and rendering aid, he was set upon by a swarm of coulda-been-Obama´s-sons and left with brain damage. He is out of the hospital, but still not able to work at last report.

Bad guys shooting one another is certainly a problem, especially when innocents are caught in the cross-fire. However, bad guy on bad guy shootings help reduce the inventory of pimps, muggers, drug dealers, burglars, and general thugs and hooligans which can´t be all bad.

Concealed carry is one of the reasons Texas has a relatively low crime rate.

Missouri lawmakers expand
guns in schools, cities
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri lawmakers expanded the potential for teachers to bring guns in schools and residents to openly carry firearms in cities on Thursday by overriding a veto of legislation by Gov. Jay Nixon. The vote capped a two-year effort by the Republican-led Legislature to expand gun rights over the objection of the Democratic governor. A more far-reaching measure that sought to nullify federal gun control laws died in the final hours of the legislative session in May.

Jury finds ex-Probation boss, pals
guilty of racketeering conspiracy

A federal jury today found the state’s former Probation Department commissioner and his top lieutenants guilty of racketeering conspiracy for running a years-long rigged hiring system. Former Probation Commissioner John J. O’Brien and his deputies — William H. Burke III and Elizabeth V. Tavares — were accused of a patronage-based scheme in which they would hand out jobs to the politically connected in a quid pro quo with state legislators. (Snip) An all-star defense squad argued that their clients did nothing wrong — they were part of a business-as-usual approach to hiring in the Bay State.

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

A majority of the Palin family — Sarah, Todd, Bristol, and Track — was allegedly involved in a booze-filled brawl over the weekend in which the former vice presidential candidate reportedly screamed, “Don’t you know who I am?” According to reports from local bloggers, the Palin crew showed up at a party in Wasilla following a day at the Iron Dog snowmobile race. According to local blogger Amanda Coyne, witnesses at the scene said Palin’s eldest son, Track, showed up to the party in a stretch Hummer. He then confronted a man who had previously dated one of his sisters,

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life. Mrs Clinton, 66, has rarely spoken about her husband’s infidelity with White House intern Monica

   

 



 
Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

The U.S. government Friday defended its handling of James Foley´s case after the slain journalist´s mother told CNN that officials suggested the family could be charged if they tried to raise money to free him. Saying everything possible had been done to bring the journalist home, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters officials worked very closely with Foley´s family and with his employer, GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni. "Any advice that this department or other departments give to the families about what they should do in these situations is based solely on what is best for returning their loved one

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

She is building stamina through tough new workouts with a personal trainer and yoga. She is talking about how to address income inequality without alienating corporate America. And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle. Hillary Rodham Clinton has said publicly that she will decide early next year whether she will undertake a second campaign for the presidency. But inside the Clinton operation, the groundwork is already quietly being laid for a candidacy. On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton will appear at the 37th annual Iowa steak fry hosted by Senator Tom Harkin;

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

President Barack Obama´s trip to Los Angeles in July was billed as ´the last the President will be making this year.´But it seems he simply can´t stay away from California´s famously deep-pocketed Democratic donors. He will be back on October 9 for a fundraiser hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow at her home in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The evening will include a reception and the opportunity to ask questions ´at an intimate dinner,´ per an email from a Hollywood fundraiser.Tickets for the Democratic National Committee event will start at $1,000 per person for the reception. Donors of $15,000 also get a photo and

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
