FERGUSON, Mo. -- Police in riot gear fired tear gas into a crowd of protesters in a St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black teenager had been fatally shot by police over the weekend, as tension rose even amid calls for collective calm. Between two nights of unrest, a community forum hosted by the local NAACP chapter Monday night drew hundreds to a sweltering church in Ferguson, the St. Louis County suburb of 21,000 that´s nearly 70 percent black and the place where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot multiple times after being confronted by an officer. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said

There can be no race riots in Obama´s America because: Obama! Dear Leader Barack Hussein has healed us all and united us all, so any claim of race riots is nothing but Tea Party propaganda.

If the witness on the porch is anywhere close to accurate, it´s not looking good for the cop. We can´t rely on either side telling the truth in this one.

Whatever happened, the looting and violence are inexcusable.

The Black Panther Party always championed community policing for black people. Looks like they´re asking for it.

I side with the police until absolute proof otherwise. I also think it´s time to take back the streets and take them back with extreme prejudice....

Bonfire of the Vanities redux?

Honor student? College bound? Any excuse to steal whatever isn´t bolted down and destroy private property?

Where is the reporting of the facts? What happened in that police car? Why was Michael Brown stopped? Does he have a record? What was he doing?

It is highly unlikely this cop gunned down an innocent young man who was just out buying Skittles for his little brother.

It is time for the authorities to speak up and for the media to stop fanning the flames and responsibly report the facts!

What the media had been parroting is that Mr. Brown was "unarmed" which of course implies no wrongdoing on his part whatsoever, so help me G-d, which MAY be the case. And if it that actually was the case, its not like the official police report is going to come out and say that. The media has no interest in not fanning the flames because its news.

One outlet interviewed a local professor of criminology from UMSL who was attempting to explain the process of the investigation and that there were natural timelines involved that required patience. Meanwhile at a local shopping strip or mall nearby....

While some in law enforcement are their own worst enemies, the predominant attitude of lack of respect and failure to cooperate with law enforcement within certain communities has its own unintended consequences which we see playing out here.

“Zone of Interest” is Martin Amis’ tour de force, but it couldn’t have happened without the influence of Peter Foges, Christopher Hitchens and others. In the years after the war, Britain was awash with stories and images of Nazi hell. The war crimes trials had revealed the full horror of what Hitler had done. Books like Lord Russell of Liverpool’s “Scourge of the Swastika” made the front pages and topped best-seller lists for months. When he was five, Martin Amis saw one of these lurid accounts accompanied by pictures of the railway tracks and crematoria of Auschwitz. Unable to understand them

Good news for Republicans

On the polling front this weekend, Republicans have a few reasons to celebrate. Last week, the building blocks of the narrowest Republican Senate majority were clearly coming together. This week, polls indicate that Republicans have a number of avenues to pursue in their quest to win back the majority. In Louisiana, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) has significantly narrowed the gap with Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), but that race looks set to head to a runoff. A CNN/ORC survey released on Sunday shows Cassidy and Landrieu statistically tied with 40 to 43 percent support respectively. That poll also revealed that retired

If you would like to be filled with despair for the prospects of democracy, spend a few minutes attempting to decipher the psephological musings of Lena Dunham, the distinctly unappealing actress commissioned by Planned Parenthood to share with her presumably illiterate following “5 Reasons Why I Vote (and You Should, Too).” That’s 21st-century U.S. politics in miniature: a half-assed listicle penned by a half-bright celebrity and published by a gang of abortion profiteers. It is an excellent fit, if you think about it: Our national commitment to permanent, asinine, incontinent juvenility, which results in, among other

The crash of a bus and a tractor-trailer that left four Texas college softball players dead and 15 others injured is "being investigated like a homicide," police said today, as officials try to piece together what happened. The early indication is that the tractor-trailer crossed over Interstate 35, into the southbound lanes, near the Oklahoma-Texas border, and struck a bus owned by North Central Texas College that was carrying the team back to campus after a game Friday evening. "We just know that the semi impacted the bus and the bus was traveling southbound on the interstate when the collision occurred," Oklahoma

In most of its details, the domestic-violence case of Mark Fuller was not all that unusual. One night in August, a woman called 911 from a hotel room in Atlanta, pleading for help, because a man was beating her. When the police arrived, Fuller’s wife, Kelli, opened the door. She had “visible lacerations to her mouth and forehead,” the police report said. During an argument in which she had accused her husband of infidelity, the report continued, she said that he “threw her to the ground and kicked her. Mrs. Fuller also stated she was dragged around the room and Mr. Fuller hit her in the mouth several times with his hands.

Any self-respecting congressional reporter not wearing a protective athletic cup probably would have rushed out of the way to safety. “Get out of my way or I’ll kick you in the crotch and give you a hernia from here to New Jersey,” sneered former Jim Traficant at a cadre of journalists blocking his exit from a hearing room in the Rayburn House Office Building in July 2002. The House Ethics Committee had recessed from a meeting about Traficant’s conviction on federal corruption charges. At the end of the session, Traficant tried to make his way into the corridor while committee members deliberated

Global Citizen Festival Fights
Poverty By Leaving A Mess

If you caught any of the Global Citizen Festival on MSNBC Saturday night, you saw millionaires and billionaires decry “extreme poverty” around the world. The concert was held in New York City’s Central Park and involved an elaborate stage and light show by the likes of No Doubt, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. They could easily end a lot of poverty if they wanted, but… Since the hypocrisy of people who made their fortunes through capitalism complaining about it is obvious, I’ll just say this on that: Capitalism is so awesome that you can even get rich by telling people it’s awful.

Last week I penned a column titled, “THANKS TO ISLAM: ‘Beheading’ Has Been Re-introduced Into Our Discussions”. In the column that I penned seven days ago I put forth this warning: “For those of us in the U.S. still skipping around the maypole with rose-colored glasses on, thinking beheadings will never happen in our neck of the woods — I’m sure that’s what the UK thought prior to Lee Rigby’s beheading last year.” Now, unless you live in la-la-land, you’re well aware of the brutal beheading that happened in Moore, Oklahoma this past Friday.

I’ll admit to being a little cynical when it comes to Derek Jeter’s retirement tour. He’s a great player, and his spot in Cooperstown is reserved five years hence. But, as tends to happen in these situations, he’s been a bit overrated in much of the sermonizing of his career over the past several months. Sermonizing that will mercifully come to an end this afternoon at Fenway Park. His walk-off hit Thursday night at Yankee Stadium was special, even for those who have lived to hate the guy in a sports context over the past two decades. IIt was special because it came at Yankee Stadium, in front of the fans who have given him their undivided

Howard Kurtz writes the obituary of the anti-war movement. Born in 2003, the movement experienced sudden difficulties in January 2009, struggled and limped along for the past few years, and finally collapsed in the street in front of the White House least week: Medea Benjamin of Code Pink was asked why so few on the left oppose Obama. “‘He’s totally defanged us,’ she said, citing his party, his affability — and his race. ‘The black community is traditionally the most antiwar community in this country. He’s defanged that sentiment within the black community, or certainly voicing that sentiment.’” Defanged. Wow, those are

Hundreds of thousands marched in New York recently for climate “justice” in “The People’s Climate March,” convinced that human industry is heating the earth to apocalyptic levels. Naturally there was a religious auxiliary to the Global Warming jamboree in the form of the Interfaith Summit on Climate Change, sponsored by the World Council of Churches, among others. And of course it included earth-friendly worship at the flamboyant Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine, whose theologically provocative services some critics have labeled earth worship. Those critics would have found vindication at the cathedral on

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

In an update on Friday afternoon, one of the country´s leading independent political handicappers broadened its assessment of how many House seats Republicans are likely to win this fall. "Regardless of whether you want to call it a wave," wrote the Rothenberg Political Report´s Nathan Gonzales -- the sort of qualifier that will keep Democratic operatives up at night -- "the fight for the House continues to creep into Democratic territory."

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

Tim Zoll with the Ferguson Police Department told NewsChannel 5 that the officer has been shot in the arm and transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital. The officer is expected to be okay. The suspect is described as a black male with dreadlocks. The suspect is still at large. West Florissant Ave is shut down from Chambers Rd. to I-270 in both directions.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
