A Washington Post reporter arrested at a McDonald’s in Ferguson, Mo. on fired back Thursday at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and other pundits who criticized him for not listening to police. “I would advise Joe Scarborough to come down to Ferguson and get out of 30 Rock where he’s sitting there, sipping his Starbucks smugly,” Wesley Lowery said on CNN’s “New Day” when asked to respond to Scarborough’s comments. “I invite him to come down here and talk to the residents of Ferguson where I’ve been since Monday afternoon where I’ve had tear gas shot at me, having rubber bullets shot

The reporter should be smart enough to realize, if someone is armed with bullets, rubber or otherwise, and teargas, it would be prudent to get the h*** out of Dodge!

If you are going to mix with a mob expect to be treated like a member of the mob.

And, of course, reporters and reporterettes have NEVER been known to incite "demonstrators" to acts that will make for great "news" footage.

The mainstream media has no credibility anymore. Not one shred. I wouldn´t believe them if them said the sky was blue and firetrucks are red.

Having said that, ask me if I believe their story is a bunch of cry wolf, politically motivated crap?

Yes. Yes, I do.

I read this story and felt that the reporters were looking for a story. It is my feeling that the police are up tight given the situation in Ferguson and are having a hard time discerning situations. I wouldn´t want to be a police officer in Ferguson these days.

Joseph Andrey was 5 years old in 1927 when his impoverished mother sold him to the manager of a popular vaudeville act. He was 91 last year when he told the story again, propped in a wheelchair in the rehabilitation unit of a nursing home where it seemed as though age and infirmity had put a different kind of price on his head. Craning his neck, he sought the eyes of his daughter, Maureen Stefanides, who had promised to get him out of this place. “I want to go home, to my books and my music,” he said, his voice

A Michigan court ruled that the state branch of the powerful Service Employees International Union does not have to pay back tens of millions of dollars in dues taken from home health care workers who were forced into unionization. The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled last week that the SEIU Healthcare Michigan does not have to pay back more than $34 million in dues collected from over 40,000 home health care workers. Many were forced into the union under state requirements that they join because they were taking care of sick family members at home. The SEIU successfully lobbied for

New Ernst ads tout military service in Iraq

Posted By: JoniTx- 9/25/2014 10:42:15 PM     Post Reply
(Video) Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst released a trio of ads on Thursday emphasizing her military service in Iraq. The radio and TV ads feature testimonials from Iraq War veterans who served alongside Ernst, a lieutenant colonel in the Iowa National Guard. The commercials highlight the continued emphasis national security issues have received in the deadlocked race between Ernst and Rep. Bruce Braley (D), whom Republicans have repeatedly hit over veterans issues. The contest to replace retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) could decide which party controls the Senate next year. In one of the 30-second spots, Chris Fox, a

President Obama has agreed to sit for an interview with "60 Minutes" anchor Steve Kroft, CBS News announced on Thursday. The interview, which will tape Friday and air on the Sunday broadcast of the show, will touch on issues both foreign and domestic, the network said. It will be the president´s first since the launch of airstrikes in Syria targeting Islamist militants. The interview will also likely touch on Attorney General Eric Holder´s decision to resign, and midterm elections that are less than six weeks away. Although presidential television interviews are relatively rare, Obama appeared on the inaugural show for "Meet

Wasserman Schultz Repeats Republican Insults

(Video) Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is failing to deliver original rhetoric against her Republican foes. On two occasions she charged that Republican governors insulted women with the “back of [their] hands.” Wasserman Schultz, the congresswoman for Florida’s 23rd district, was forced to apologize earlier this month after she accused Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker of using the back of his hand against women. Politico reported: “Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality,” Wasserman Schultz said during a roundtable meeting in Wisconsin.

Assad Reported to Have Used
Chemical Weapons Again

In the wake of President Obama’s speech yesterday at the U.N. General Assembly, there were reports of another chemical weapons attack near Damascus launched by Bashar al-Assad’s regime. If true, Assad is just drawing the logical conclusion from the president’s speech and the administration’s actions over the last several weeks. The policy of the Obama White House is to target Sunni extremism. That means that Assad and his partners in the Iranian resistance axis are virtually untouchable. Indeed, the administration advised Tehran before launching strikes on ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra Monday that the strikes would do no damage to the

Perry prosecutor accused of bilking taxpayers

AUSTIN — A Houston lawyer is alleging the prosecutor handling the indictment against Rick Perry is over-charging taxpayers for his services, breaking the same law the governor stands accused of violating. In a criminal complaint sent Monday to the Travis County district attorney’s office, Houston criminal defense attorney David Rushing says special prosecutor Michael McCrum is abusing his official capacity by billing the county $300 per hour, or more than three times the highest possible rate set by a state law. Travis County’s guidelines for the law, however, make it possible for an attorney in McCrum’s situation to earn less

About 500 soldiers from Fort Riley, Kan., will deploy to the Middle East in late October to support the mission to “degrade and destroy” Islamic State militants, the Department of Defense announced Thursday. About 200 of the soldiers from Fort Riley’s 1st Infantry Division, the “Big Red One,” will deploy directly to Baghdad and Irbil in Iraq. The rest will be stationed in the region and deployed to Iraq over time. The Defense Department said the soldiers are preparing for a one-year mission. “The troops will advise and assist the Iraqi Security Forces to help them go on the offense

President Obama today will sign a proclamation creating the largest marine reserve in the world – three times the size of California, totaling 490,000 square miles. The move is a six-fold expansion of the existing Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument, which covers several small U.S.-controlled islands and atolls in the central Pacific to the west of Hawaii. It’s existing size is just 87,000 square miles. The designation bans commercial fishing, dumping and mining in the national monument’s waters, home to “deep coral reefs, seamounts, and marine ecosystems unique to this part of the world among the most vulnerable areas

Hours after the news broke that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will resign from his position, President Barack Obama bid farewell to the top lawyer in a press announcement at the White House. “Bobby Kennedy once said, ‘On this generation of Americans falls the full burden of proving to the world that we really mean it when we say, all men are created free and equal before the law,’” the president began his remarks. “As one of the longest-serving attorney generals in American history, Eric Holder has borne that burden.” “This is bittersweet,” Obama said of his close friend and

Why Holder Quit

It’s oddly fitting that Attorney General Eric Holder – a stubbornly independent career prosecutor ridiculed by Barack Obama’s advisers for having lousy political instincts— would nail his dismount. But Holder, who began his stormy five-plus-year tenure at the Justice Department with his controversial “Nation of Cowards” speech, has chosen what seems to be the ideal (and maybe the only) moment to call it quits after more than 18 months of musing privately about leaving with the president and senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, a trio bound by friendship, progressive ideology and shared African-American ancestry. It was now or never,

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace,

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to raise the minimum wage for hotel workers to $15.37, one of the highest wage requirements in the country. Hotel workers in yellow shirts packed City Hall as the council voted 12 to 3 to approve the measure, which will go into effect for hotels with at least 300 rooms beginning in July. Hotels with 150 rooms or more will have to meet the wage requirement a year later. “Hotel workers are here because they want family-supporting wages,” said Maria Elena Durazo, executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, during the public

President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology. However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of
