CNN, by Ben Brumfield & Yan Pomranze

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/14/2014 1:49:13 AM

Ferguson, Missouri - A new witness in the police shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, told CNN that Brown and the police officer tussled at the police car window, then the officer shot the teen multiple times, as Brown backed away. "What I saw was when Michael and the cop were wrestling through the window," Tiffany Mitchell told CNN´s Don Lemon. A shot was fired while Brown was out the window. He got free, and the officer got out of the vehicle, followed Brown and shot him, she said. He raised his hands, and the officer kept firing, she said. At night, Ferguson has taken on the appearance of a police state,

Comments:
By 0bama once again interjecting himself personally into this race driven rioting, before he was alleged to have been briefed tonight, this is going to get and stay ugly in the days ahead. Whatever it takes to keep him and the dRATS stalled Senate from being scrutinized before the midterm elections. Ferguson, Missouri to become the summer hit of reality TV (produced & directed by White House).

If Dear Leader had a son, would he still look like Trayvon? The Exploit-a-Crisis gang in the Oval Office are busy as bees working this into their "Republican War on Everything" campaign meme. OJ couldn´t have done a better job of dividing the nation. Perhaps a beer summit is in order.

Michael Brown stood six foot three and weighed in at 300 pounds - another of Obama´s sons no doubt. We will have to wait for the depositions before we can truly understand what really happened, but one thing is clear - it does serve as yet another distraction from the rest of the woes of illegal alien border crashers, Ukraine and Putin ,the hellhole that is the Middle East,the ebola crisis in Africa and the mounting list of the administration´s corruptions..

Police look really bad here.

They appear to be trying to hide what happened, even to the point of not identifying the officer.

Anyone other than a police officer would have appeared in court by now. Police don´t have the right to murder people in cold blood, no matter what local authorities may think.

Number 9, I don´t believe anyone is trying to cover up anything here. With Al and Jessie on the scene, creating hovoc, the authorities have to be extremely careful so that the truth will come out and their employee or family are not harmed

Don´t think for a minute that the msm won´t do everything in their power to see the policeman convicted of murder, no matter the facts. That is how dishonest they are.

No need for ad hominem attacks, #11, I´ve seen that user name on here for a lot longer than yours.

Keep attacking Obama and Jesse and the black people, but this is starting to sound ugly. Two independent witnesses, one who took cell phone video of the aftermath, are stating that, after Brown was shot and had his hands up, the officer kept firing. I no longer believe the LEOs in this country anymore, thanks to a recent history of militarization, unprovoked violence, overstepping authority, and hiding behind the blue line when they do wrong.

As a previous poster said, anybody else would have been arraigned by now. This guy´s on paid leave.

And no, I´m not excusing the riots. We currently have people with a perceived grievance, ginned up by many to believe they´re oppressed, being met by a militarized police force who seem to think they can do anything and get away with it.

It´s entirely possible there is truth on both sides. Brown was at the window of the police car and the police version could be entirely right about a struggle at the car. At the first shot Brown´s friend said Brown moved away from the car with his hands up and the cop continued to shoot, killing him. That could also be true. It sounds like Brown initiated the physical confrontation, but the cop overreacted when Brown backed off and the physical danger to the cop was over, yet he continued shooting at Brown from some feet away and killed him. Does this make it murder?

Under the circumstances created by political correctness, it makes a white man guilty but a black man innocent. Watch this tragedy unfold...the same bias will be used to convict...unless the jury pool is sane. Hope I am wrong.

Kansas City, Mo. - A sprawling new plant here in a former soybean field makes the mechanical guts of America’s atomic warheads. Bigger than the Pentagon, full of futuristic gear and thousands of workers, the plant, dedicated last month, modernizes the aging weapons that the United States can fire from missiles, bombers and submarines. It is part of a nationwide wave of atomic revitalization that includes plans for a new generation of weapon carriers. A recent federal study put the collective price tag, over the next three decades, at up to a trillion dollars. This expansion comes under a president who campaigned for

MAVEN has arrived in Mars´s orbit after traveling 442 million miles in the course of 10 months to get there. It won´t land on the red planet but instead study Mars´ atmosphere from above to answer questions about its climate change, NASA says. NASA´s MAVEN craft will live up to its formal name -- the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution craft -- by helping scientists figure out how ancient Mars changed so dramatically into the planet we know today. It is the first mission devoted to studying the upper Martian atmosphere as a key to understanding the history of Mars' climate, water and habitability.

Three Afghan National Army soldiers, who were in Massachusetts for training, have gone missing after a trip to a shopping mall, authorities said. "There is no indication they pose any threat to the public," the Massachusetts National Guard said in a statement. Afghanistan National Army Soldiers Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar arrived in the United States on September 11 for Exercise Regional Cooperation, an annual event, the guard said. They were quartered at Joint Base Cape Cod and were reported missing by base security late Saturday. They were last seen at a Cape Cod

New York - Bill Clinton has let slip that his family are on baby watch after saying that he expected to become a grandparent by the end of the month. The former president gave a substantial clue to his only child Chelsea´s due date when he told CNN: "I hope by the first of October, I´ll be a grandfather. "I can´t wait. We´re on watch now," he went on. Chelsea Clinton, 34, announced she was pregnant in April. She and Marc Mezvinsky, 36, an investment banker, celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary last month. President Clinton also disclosed that the couple had opted not to discover the sex of the baby before the birth,

President Obama´s plan hinges on arming and training moderate Syrian militias to defeat ISIS. The president has been criticized for not doing that sooner. You´re about to hear from two men who saw the threat early, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and King Abdullah II of Jordan. Jordan is a moderate, American ally, nearly surrounded by war, with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to its west, Syria to its north and Iraq to the east. Today we spoke to King Abdullah in New York before this month´s U.N. General Assembly meeting. For hundreds of years, his family ruled the holiest shrines in Islam.

(Snip) Iran has sent mixed signals about its willingness to cooperate on defeating Islamic State (IS), a hard-line Sunni Islamist group that has seized large swaths of territory across Syria and Iraq and is blamed for a wave of sectarian violence, beheadings and massacres of civilians.

Washington - The Secret Service is considering screening tourists and other visitors at checkpoints before they enter the public areas in front of the White House in response to the episode Friday in which a man with a knife managed to get through the front door of the president’s home after jumping over the fence on Pennsylvania Avenue, according to law enforcement officials. As part of the screening, the Secret Service would establish several checkpoints a few blocks from the White House, the officials said. The screening would likely be limited to bag checks and and not include measures taken at airports

Sanaa, Yemen - Yemen´s prime minister resigned Sunday, the state news agency reported, following days of violence that left more than 140 dead and prompted thousands to flee their homes. The official SABA news agency gave no details on the move by Mohammed Salem Bassindwa, and it was not immediately clear if his resignation had been accepted by the president. Bassindwa took office shortly after former president Ali Abdullah Saleh was forced to step down in 2012. He has been in office since February 2012 and has since been the target of sharp criticism for his inability to deal with the country's pressing problems.

In the Muslim world, where women are denied basic human rights — from divorce to drivers’ licenses, no protection from abuse or honor killings — there is no worse place than Afghanistan. The United Nations, Save the Children and the Thompson Reuters Foundation have ranked Afghanistan as the worst place in the world to be a woman, a mother, a child and a newborn. The average life expectancy for a woman is 44. Little surprise, then, that girls there don’t want to be girls.

American officials said that the group called Khorasan had emerged in the past year as the cell in Syria that may be the most intent on hitting the United States or its installations overseas with a terror attack.

The Secret Service on Saturday launched a security review to learn how a man carrying a knife was able to get inside the front door of the White House Friday night after jumping a fence and sprinting more than 70 yards across the North Lawn — the first time that has ever happened. Within seconds, the man who relatives said served as a sniper in the Iraq War got to the front double doors of the North Portico, turned the brass knob and stepped inside the vestibule. There he was grabbed and subdued by an officer standing post inside the door. He was carrying a folding knife with a 2-1/2 inch serrated blade.

On a scalding July day five years ago, I found myself hiking in Red Rocks Park, just outside Denver, with Gary Hart. The copper cliffs were brilliantly lit in the midday sun, which burned our uncovered heads as we trudged up a steep incline toward the amphitheater that Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration ingeniously carved into the boulders. We had come because Hart wanted to show me something, and as we made our way uphill, I was soon breathing heavily in the mile-high air. But I was more aware of Hart, who, at 72, labored audibly despite his legendary ruggedness.

In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face."

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
