Best of facts-free reporting
hands-down...I mean up

Boston Herald, by Howie Carr

I began to lose interest in Ferguson, Mo., when it was first reported that the late Michael Brown was an “aspiring rapper.” Hadn’t heard that one yet? It was in the LA Times, under the headline: “Michael Brown’s raps: Money, sex, drugs — and a vulnerable side.” Of course he had to have a vulnerable side. That’s why he was known as “the Gentle Giant.” He didn’t look terribly gentle in that closed-circuit video, shoving the owner of the Ferguson Market when he was stealing the box of Swisher Sweets just before he got shot. But the demonstrators could see right through that

I think Holders there today to try and suppress Brown´s toxicology report which could show more than pot.Remember Rodney King was high on booze and PCP when he was driving a 100 mph celebrating that he got a job earlier in the day.Some drugs give the feeling of invincibility.

Not much coverage on the cop getting severe eye damage from something. My guess in the beloved dead thug punched him through the window of the cop car.

Looks like taxpayers were going to fork over college loans so he could pursue a career in rap singing.Why do you need to study Beethoven and others to be a rapper?

The Conservative Treehouse is reporting that Dr. Baden did NOT perform an autopsy, and the rumors that Michael Brown´s cohort in crime Dorian Johnson has recanted his media statement could be true.

"Never let a good crisis go to waste." Isn´t that this administration´s motto?

Holder has nothing better to do than come down and help sort out a felony assault that went bad for Michael Brown. I hope Dorian Johnson is arrested and prosecuted for false testimony.

Nothing to see here folks. Move along. Holder has it covered. I am sure Dear Prez is checking in after every golf shot to see how it is going. It is a wonder he can concentrate on his game.

Holder has a literal army of FBI, Justice Department yahoos and Civil Rights Advocates on the scene in Ferguson. So he could be briefed and updated on the investigation while he´s in Washington. He´s not going to get any more info by being on scene than he would had he stayed home in DC. Obama and Holder are just grandstanding for the Afro American Community here. They´re making a mockery out of the Justice System and the blacks that are buying into this whole charade?

CNN has Don Lemon, fresh from espousing his theory that a Black Hole swallowed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, now reporting live from the QuikTrip and talking about how he “understands.” Understands what? Being attacked by a 300-pound hophead? Looting liquor stores?

The cowardice of Don Lemon, wanting to be in the inside circle of liberal witteratti, finds it necessary to show his street cred by "understanding." This is such a sickening display of craven obsequiousness, it is to ralph.

I "understand" how the Holocaust happened. I "understand" why Hamas wants to destroy Israel and America. I "understand" why a malignant narcissist and his stormtrooper wife occupy the White House. I "understand" why black people commit crimes in greater ratios than white people. I "understand" cancer.

Understanding all of the above makes them no less abhorrent, evil and wrong. What is Lemon´s point? That he doesn´t want his reportage crossing his bosses´ agenda?

What has happened to honor and decency? More, what has happened to critical thinking?

(Nevermind answering. I "understand.")

With Holder running to the scene you can bet the farm that regardless of what a grand jury may rule, the a "special prosecutor" will be named and the officer will be brought before a kangaroo court and tried for "violating Michael Brown´s civil rights". That seems to be the operating mode in today´s interactions between blacks and whites.

It’s Not a Misnomer

When you are dealing with an administration whose officials look you in the eye and tell you the Muslim Brotherhood is a “largely secular” organization, it’s tempting to laugh off the idiocy spouted by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry about how the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. We should resist the temptation, though, because there is a dangerous purpose behind the laughable assertion. Obviously, Bing West and Daniel Pipes are correct that the terrorist group is entirely Islamic. As I’ve been arguing here more times and for more years than I care to remember, what

How Awful Will It Be?

In bad midterm-election years, members of a president´s party often find the political climate challenging. In some ways, it is like a swimmer encountering riptides or facing strong undertows. The degree of the danger varies from location to location, and in many cases, weak swimmers struggle in this environment; occasionally, even an Olympic-level swimmer perishes. In 2010—President Obama´s first midterm election—Democratic congressional candidates struggled mightily. The party suffered a net loss of six Senate seats and 63 seats in the House. That was the worst loss for either party in any election since 1948, and the largest loss in a

The Awful Reign of the Red Delicious

At the supermarket near his home in central Virginia, Tom Burford likes to loiter by the display of Red Delicious. He waits until he spots a store manager. Then he picks up one of the glossy apples and, with a flourish, scrapes his fingernail into the wax: T-O-M. “We can’t sell that now,” the manager protests. To which Burford replies, in his soft Piedmont drawl: “That’s my point.” Burford, who is 79 years old, is disinclined to apple destruction. His ancestors scattered apple seeds in the Blue Ridge foothills as far back as 1713, and he grew up with more than 100 types

Black men. Fellas. Brothers. Stop complaining about Ray Rice’s (much deserved and yet woefully insufficient) punishment. Right now. When we are beaten, slain and otherwise persecuted, our sisters, our mothers, and our women stand for us with nearly unilateral, unwavering support. They march for us. They cry out our names and demand justice. They support us in our moments of quiet fear when we shed the bitter tears of self-doubt and fatigue. Why aren’t we doing the same? Stephen A. Smith wasn’t alone in blaming black women for the violence against them. Too many black men are making shameful attempts to explain away the

With all of the other news ricocheting around the media and social networks, this may seem like a sleeper of a story, but it’s a bigger deal than one might think — literally as well as figuratively. Last night, House Republicans unveiled their proposed continuing resolution that will fund government well past the midterm elections, and it won’t make conservatives like Rep. Jeb Hensarling too happy. The proposal calls for a simple extension of current funding, plus some extra cash to deal with the Ebola outbreak in Africa and more flexibility on the use of cash for border security. Otherwise,

In the latest round of polls, President Obama´s approval ratings are lowest on the two issues that once were strengths—foreign policy and immigration. In this week´s ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 31 percent of Americans approved of his handling of immigration, an issue that he recently hoped to wield as a political weapon against the Republican Party. And the same survey showed his approval on international affairs at just 38 percent—the lowest point of his presidency and an 8-point drop from late July—even as he catered to the creeping isolationist sentiment in the country. To the White House, these numbers must

Martha Coakley’s Small Margin of

Boston Globe, by Eric Levenson    Original Article

Martha Coakley may have won the Massachusetts’ Democratic governor primary, but her slim six-point margin of victory isn’t doing much to assuage Democrats worried about another 2010. Coakley took 42 percent of the vote to Steve Grossman’s 36 percent and Don Berwick’s 21 percent on Tuesday’s election. Coakley’s six-point margin is a rather uncomfortable primary win, particularly given that Coakley had a 20-point lead in The Boston Globe poll as recently as two weeks ago. The margin is bringing up memories of her failed 2010 Senate race, when Coakley lost to Scott Brown in a race to replace the longtime seat of

The first question most callers ask, says Katie Ray-Jones, president of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, isn’t “How do I leave him?” The first question is typically, “How do I get him to stop hitting me?” It is not unusual for domestic violence victims such as Janay Palmer to stand by their man, Ray-Jones said. Palmer posted an angry and pained Instagram response defending husband Ray Rice on Tuesday, a day after TMZ posted a new video that shows the disgraced NFL star punch her in the face during an argument in an Atlantic City casino elevator last February.

It’s proof that not everything is melancholy or alarming this week: Three cheers for the National Park Service, which managed to assemble 6,609 appropriately clad children into a “living” American flag at Fort McHenry National Monument in Baltimore to celebrate the 200th anniversary of “The Star Spangled Banner.” The herculean 90-minute task was completed at high noon Tuesday. The flag formation spanned 50,384 square feet — that’s 188 feet by 268 feet — entirely made up of enthusiastic local students from the fourth to eighth grades, who donned red, white or blue coverups and meandered their way into the largest living

Democratic candidate for Wisconsin governor Mary Burke took a two-year break from her career for a “snowboarding sabbatical” and a decade later expressed doubts that she ever wanted to have a full-time job again. Burke’s career has come under scrutiny after it was revealed that her résumé includes a two-year gap between positions at Trek Bicycle Corporation, which was founded by her father. After working in Europe for Trek overseeing operations in multiple countries, Burke decided she “needed some time off,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal. Explanations of what Burke was actually doing from July 1993 to September 1995 vary, largely

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,

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.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

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

It was a brawl in the family for the Palin clan.

The former Alaska governor’s daughter Bristol even allegedly threw punches and son Track ripped his shirt off in anger and flipped the bird in the Saturday melee, according to the reports.
