Revolutionary Justice
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/18/2014 1:01:56 PM

Certainly any time in America that an unarmed suspect is fatally shot by a policeman of the opposite race, there is a need for concern and a quick and full inquiry of the circumstances leading to such a deadly use of force. That said, there is something disturbing about the demagogic efforts to rush to judgment in Ferguson, Mo. While it is understandable to deplore the militarization of the police that might accentuate rising tensions on the street, and to note that a mostly white police force might be less sensitive to a majority African-American populace, there is as yet

Comments:
Of course revolutionary street justice does not reflect the rule of constitutional law and does not calm racial tensions as Hanson states. However, as long as Obama is in power this will be supported and encouraged. The guy who was allegedly going to be such a uniter is a divider in the worst possible way.

From the first sentence, "shot by a policeman of the opposite race..." - I think Mr. Hanson is mistaken. If a black police officer shot a white youth, would we be talking about this at all, assuming it made the news?

We´ve gone from the Rule of Law to the Rule of the Jungle quite quickly under the Obama Regime. Anything to keep the citizens on edge.

Meanwhile, DC is on vacation, the military is being downsized dramatically yet no other govn dept or agency has ´non-essential´ personnel on the chopping block.

Federal regs cost $1.88 trillion, more
with Obama´s ´pen and phone´ rules
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 9/26/2014 12:46:24 PM     Post Reply
Burdensome federal regulations cost American taxpayers and businesses a shocking $1.88 trillion annually — far more than the administration estimates — and that doesn’t include the impact of President Obama’s “pen and phone” rulemaking, according to a “Costberg” analysis from the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute. “The Costberg is large, but in the ‘pen and phone’ era of doing things off the books, the impact of regulation becomes far more ominous given the ‘regulatory dark matter’ we can’t see that doesn’t get counted, and for which no one is accountable. Congress must address this next year,” warned the author of the report,

The surprise resignation of Eric Holder, the first Attorney General ever to be held in contempt of Congress, exploded in the news today. Holder has been under unrelenting assault for the most egregious politicization and abuse of power in the Department of Justice in history—exceeding that of John Mitchell and Alberto Gonzalez. He has made the Department of Obstructing Justice notorious. Federal judges are stepping in to end his stone walling of Congressional and other investigations on several fronts, and now he’s on the run. Why now? What is about to blow up? This week in Washington federal district judge John D.

The union representing employees of the Department of Labor (DOL) plan to hold a rally at its Washington headquarters next Wednesday, Oct. 1, to protest instances of alleged discrimination overseen by top Obama administration officials at the department. The Daily Caller obtained a “12 Alert” document circulating among members of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 12. The union alleges that DOL manager Eric Raps demanded to see a female worker’s non-redacted gynecological reports in violation of the Rehabilitation Act, that DOL public affairs director Carl Fillichio, with the help of the department’s inspector general, removed a 27-year

On Fox News Thursday, Megyn Kelly asked State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf to defend President Barack Obama, who referenced a controversial Muslim cleric during his speech at the United Nations general assembly. The Department of State had previously deleted and apologized for a tweet that praised Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah for condemning the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian girls. Bin Bayyah has, however, also called for the killing of Americans in 2004. Despite the State Department’s walk-back, Obama commended Bayyah during his UN Speech for denouncing ISIS, the Islamic terrorist group that the U.S. is now engaged in war

He walked into the front office area where he met 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and began attacking her with a knife. Sgt. Lewis confirms the type of knife used in the attack is the same kind used

NEW YORK - Protecting the infrastructure of American cities from the effects of climate change is rising on the agenda of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, according to a top agency official. "Increasingly, we´ve moved not only from a security focus to a resiliency focus," said Caitlin Durkovich, assistant secretary for infrastructure protection at Homeland Security, an agency better known for its fight to curb terrorist threats. Durkovich spoke Thursday on a panel at the Rising Seas Summit, a three-day conference organized by the U.S.-based Association of Climate Change Officers to discuss tools and ideas on building resiliency, particularly against rising

Shark meat is in and chicken fingers are out for some schools abiding by First Lady Michelle Obama’s lunch rules. The U.S. Department of Agriculture highlighted an elementary school in Maine on Wednesday that is taking the standards from the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act to a different level. “The cafeteria is the biggest classroom in the school where students are taught to make healthy choices for themselves beginning in kindergarten,” wrote Linda Mailhot, the head cook at Mount Desert Elementary School in Northeast Harbor Maine, in a blog post for the USDA.

Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder stepped down saying his work at the Department of Justice over the last six years has significantly improved civil rights in America and, "help to craft a more perfect union." Holder said, "I come to this moment with very mixed emotions. Proud of what the men and women of the Department of Justice have accomplished over the last six years and, at the same time, very sad that I will not be a formal part. a formal part of the great things that this department and this president will have accomplished over the next two."

A sniffling Attorney General Eric Holder fought back tears on Thursday as President Barack Obama praised his legal legacy and wished him well outside the federal govermnent. Although Holder will leave the Justice Department under a cloudbank of controversies, the president gushed in a stirring political eulogy that ´he believes, as I do, that justice is not just an abstract theory. It’s a living and breathing principle.´ Holder told a televised White House gathering that he has ´very mixed emotions´ about his departure, which is on hold until his replacement can win Senate confirmation. But he had heartfelt words for

UNITED NATIONS — President Barack Obama is carving out a wide swath the Pacific Ocean for an expanded marine preserve, putting the waters off-limits to drilling and most fishing in a bid to protect fragile underwater life. The revamped expanded Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument will cover 490,000 square miles - an area roughly three times the size of California - and will become the largest marine preserve in the world. Millions of seabirds, sea turtles and marine mammals live in the bio-rich expanse included by the new monument, which will also add new protections for more than 130

‘Republicans Are People, Too’
Shouldn’t Be a Radical Message
Daily Signal, by Katrina Trinko    Original Article

This is what we’ve come to: One of Mitt Romney’s former ad men has launched an entire campaign around the idea that “Republicans Are People, Too.” And, unsurprisingly, some liberals are amused. MSNBC’s Steve Benen derided the message as “overly defensive” and wrote: “If you have to remind the public that Republicans ‘are people’ and ‘have emotions,’ then you’re implicitly suggesting that Republicans’ basic humanity is, at least for some, in doubt.” Well…sometimes, yeah, it is in doubt. Okay, sure, no one’s going around saying conservatives and Republicans aren’t human. But there’s often a host of negative assumptions and stereotyping, fueled by our liberal

TWS shares some ideas: While NPR says that Solicitor General Don Verrilli is the frontrunner to replace Holder, here are two other names to put on your radar: Deval Patrick - The Massachusetts governor is supposedly one of President Obama´s closest friends. He´s previously been spotted as a possible successor to Holder. He previously served as the Justice Department´s head of Civil Rights. Heck, Obama likes his so much, he plagiarizes his speeches. And this is the last year of his tenure as governor. Back in 2012, Patrick said he wouldn´t leave office early to serve as AG, but that

Eric Holder To Step Down

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

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

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,

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

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

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

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious. For those who don’t recall the details, here’s Wikipedia: In 1983

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

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
