Cop Suspended Indefinitely After Threatening To Kill Ferguson Protestor
APD Officer shoots Robert Garcia Sr.

Officer Peter Romero shot 64-year-old Robert Garcia Sr. once in the torso after Garcia pointed what police later learned was a pellet gun at Romero during an early-morning DUI stop, according to police. Robert…

It’s important to remember that, in police shooting cases like the one in Ferguson, Missouri, the initial facts are often wrong. You don’t want to end up looking like Rich Lowry, National Review editor, whose March 23, 2012, column on the Trayvon Martin shooting was titled, “Al Sharpton Is Right.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (D, Vermont) meets with some of his Jew-hating constituents

[RedState.com]

By: Moe Lane (Diary) | August 20th, 2014 at 06:00 PM

You know, we hear a lot of guff from the American Left about how insular rural areas of Red States can be. But I gotta tell you: speaking as a transplanted Northeasterner, listen to some of those progressives in Vermont and it’s like you’re in a time warp back to 1830 and the Know-Nothing Party.

This is from a recent town hall in Cabot, VT: basically, Sen. Bernie Sanders (Commie*, Vermont) had to stand at a podium and listen to a heck of a lot of angry Vermonter anti-Semites scream about Israel, to the point where he started screaming back about halfway through. Amazingly, from the aforementioned anti-Semites’ right. Heck of a thing when that guy’s the least vile person talking.

As you might guess from that, I have no sympathy for Bernie Sanders, mind you – these are his people, after all; he wants their votes, terrifyingly – but I have even less sympathy for people who scream ‘F*ck Israel,’ and who claim that Hamas is a service organization. And when I say I have no sympathy for either Sanders or his critics, I mean it: it is highly irresponsible for the Senator to pretend that Israel is somehow magically required to ignore their own security needs when it comes to foreign affairs. And If the Palestinians want peace, then they should start by shooting the people using them as human shields.

When ‘Anti-Government’ Violence Erupts, Who Is Really At Fault?

When ‘Anti-Government’ Violence Erupts, Who Is Really At Fault?

MCT – Protestors retreat from tear gas after marching toward the police command post on West Florissant Avenue on Sunday in Ferguson, Missouri.

This past week, I have been examining a recently leaked document from the Department Of Homeland Security entitled “Domestic Violent Extremists Pose A Threat To Government Officials And Law Enforcement.” (It’s true; the title leaves nothing to the imagination.)

The Consequence of Unaccountability

[Townhall.com]

Katie Pavlich | Aug 18, 2014

lernerEditor’s Note: This column originally appeared in the August issue of Townhall Magazine.

This year’s Supreme Court decisions didn’t turn out well for the Obama ad- ministration. And June in particular was a bad month for President Obama considering that in just one week, he was rebuked four times on issues ranging from organized labor to contraception mandates. But do these rulings really matter if the people working in our federal agencies are never held accountable for lawless behavior?

Obama’s power over the federal government doesn’t end with his “pen and phone” agenda. Most of the real policy decisions are made by bureaucrats inside federal agencies. And Obama has purposefully created an atmosphere where career bureaucrats are both rewarded for helping his administration’s political goals and punished for thwarting them.

Militarized cops on display in Ferguson riots Armored vehicles, camo, rifles: ‘Sounds like something right off the streets of Iraq’

[WND.com]

Published: August 14, 2014 | By Josh Ely

St-Louis-police-tear-gas-riots-600The developing violence in Ferguson, Missouri, where throngs have been rioting for several days over the shooting death by a police officer of an 18-year-old high school graduate, has put on display the country’s increasingly militarized local police force, according to the author of “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality.”

Cheryl Chumley has been watching developments in Missouri, where Michael Brown was shot over the weekend, and just overnight two more people were shot, including one by police.

“Armored vehicles on patrol, Kevlar-wearing, camouflage dressed officials carting high-powered rifles, tear gas wafting through the air – sounds like something right off the streets of Iraq. But it’s not. It’s actually the scene that’s playing out in Ferguson right now, with SWAT-type police taking to the residential streets for crowd control duties,” she said.

Own a Mac? Now there’s no excuse for not being up on the U.S. Constitution: It turns out there’s an electronic copy on every Apple computer.

As Steven Sande of the Unofficial Apple Weblog wrote Tuesday: “Perhaps now that more of those in the federal government are using Macs, we might begin to see them paying more attention to this document that outlines the supreme law of the land. Why? Well, there’s a copy of the U.S. Constitution on each and every Mac in the Dictionary app.”

U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) ordered by President Barack Obama last week will not weaken the group’s overall terrorist capabilities, despite slowing its advance, a senior U.S. military official said.

“We assess that U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq have slowed ISIL’s operational tempo and temporarily disrupted their advances toward the province of Erbil,” said Army Lt. Gen. William Mayville, Joint Chiefs of Staff director of operations, according to The Hill.

The New York Times’s Amnesty Lies

[Townhall.com]

Conn Carroll | Aug 11, 2014

Conn Carroll

Some pundits, like Vox’s Ezra Klein, believe that if Congress refuses to vote an any issue a president deems important, then the president is then empowered to make new law on that issue.

New-York-Times_building-grey-ladyThis is, of course, completely false. But The New York Times embraced that position Sunday with an editorial calling on President Obama to grant temporary amnesty to up to 5 million illegal immigrants currently in the United States today. Below is a paragraph-by-paragraph response to the Times’s editorial:

We don’t know the details. Mr. Obama and the Department of Homeland Security have not yet supplied the who, what, when or even, officially, whether. But Mr. Obama has promised to respond to Congress’s refusal to act on immigration reform. And the most obvious thing is to lift the threat of deportation from immigrants who should be the lowest priority for removal: those with citizen children, jobs, clean records and strong community ties. Some reports put the size of that group at four million to five million.

First of all, as noted above, the fact that Congress has not acted on an issue does not provide any justification for a president to act on his own.

Barack: Back into Iraq

obama_iraq_airstrikes“It’s harder to end a war than begin one. Indeed, everything that American troops have done in Iraq – all the fighting and all the dying, the bleeding and the building, and the training and the partnering–all of it has led to this moment of success.

Now, Iraq is not a perfect place. It has many challenges ahead. But we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people. We’re building a new partnership between our nations. And we are ending a war not with a final battle, but with a final march toward home. This is an extraordinary achievement, nearly nine years in the making.” – Barack Obama, December 14, 2011

‘Economic patriotism’ and the end of corporate taxes

[HumanEvents.com]

By: John Hayward
8/5/2014 09:14 AM

barbed_wireI’ve written a few times before on the Democrats’ big push for “economic patriotism,” which is one of the creepier euphemisms to slither out of their political laboratory. (Would it be possible for a Republican to describe anything as “economic patriotism” without facing a withering storm of mainstream media editorials, denouncing him for daring to question the patriotic fervor of his political opponents?)

President Obama’s “economic patriotism” is a fairly straightforward and tedious cash grab, designed to cudgel a few more tax dollars out of corporations that dare to shift taxable revenue overseas after merging with foreign companies, to escape from the insane American corporate tax system. Obama has gone as far as referring to such businesses as “corporate deserters.” Deserters. What happens to deserters, again?

Gaza Ceasefire Fails Utterly

[RedState.com]

By: Leon H. Wolf (Diary) | August 1st, 2014 at 02:00 PM

GAZA-cease-fire_failureFor the United States, it’s nice to have the rest of the world respect us but failing that, it’s important for the stability of the globe at large to have them fear us. The current complete disintegration of the situation in Gaza is demonstrating nicely that they do neither anymore.

Blaring headlines across the global news sphere are now announcing that the 72-hour ceasefire, negotiated by the very obviously out of his depth John Kerry after a solid week of bumbling and public embarrassments, has dissolved after 90 minutes. Libya and Iraq are now either in flames or are under the control of militant Islamists who are destroying U.S. interests with impunity, or both. Russia is slow playing an out-and-out reconstitution of the former Soviet Union while shooting civilian passenger jets out of the sky.

Interview: Andrew McCarthy Builds the Case for Obama’s Impeachment

[PJMedia.com]

July 29th, 2014 – 8:01 pm

The Washington Times reported on Tuesday that:

Talk of impeachment was cooked up by a White House desperate for something to rally Democrats ahead of November’s elections, House Speaker John A. Boehner said Tuesday, flatly ruling out any action on the controversial suggestion.

“We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans,” Mr. Beohner said. “Listen, it’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House.”

But PJM’s own Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, has a very different take, both in terms of Mr. Obama, and of the general concept of impeachment itself.
