    An FBI operation into the Black Gangster Disciples, Vice Lords and Sipp Mob street gangs may provide some answers into the 2014 murder of a 19-year-old teen who was burned alive on a rural road in Mississippi.

In total authorities have been able to get get state or federal indictments against 17 gang members on charges ranging from child endangerment, possession of stolen firearms, narcotics sales, and felon in possession of a firearm to possession of counterfeit currency.

    A Nebraska state senator compared American police to Islamic terrorists and suggested he'd shoot a cop if only he had a weapon. State Sen. Ernie Chambers said during a legislative hearing on March 20 that you don't have to go halfway around the world to find an ISIS mentality. It can be found in America because police terrorize blacks every day. He was referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has beheaded journalists and brutally executed Westerners and others. "My ISIS is the police," Chambers, an independent, said, adding police can get away with shooting people if...

    Mystery surrounds the fiery weekend death of Jessica Chambers, but the Mississippi teen may have given firefighters a clue in her killing, a prosecutor said Wednesday. The volunteer fire department that responded to her car blaze Saturday night got there quickly because it was at another call a couple of miles away, said John Champion, district attorney for Mississippi's 17th Circuit. When firefighters arrived at the scene near Courtland, Mississippi, Chambers approached one of them and spoke. She was not on fire, as has been widely reported, the prosecutor said.

At the end of his newly released and massive revised edition of Perjury: The Hiss-Chambers Case, Allen Weinstein makes the following observation: "As for the conspiracy theories themselves, we may expect that newer and perhaps more ingenious defenses of [Alger] Hiss may emerge, if only because none of the theories raised during the past six decades has proved persuasive. There has yet to appear, however, from any source, a coherent body of evidence that seriously undermines the credibility of the evidence against Alger Hiss." There will never be produced such a body of evidence,...

    I recently read the new biography of Trotsky by Oxford don Robert Service, published in 2009 by Pan Books. It is well-written and surprisingly interesting. The book does a great public service in describing the life of the actual Trotsky, whose previous “biographies” were little more than hagiographies written by his toady worshippers (people like Isaac Deutscher). The last time that I had taken any interest in Trotsky was when I was a teenager and had fleeting delusions of believing in “socialism.” Reading the new book as an adult and as an economist, I found it a useful opportunity to...

In intellectual matters you can think things out, but in spiritual matters you will only think yourself into further wandering thoughts and more confusion.

    On this day in 1948, Rep. Richard Nixon (R-CA) and his House Un-American Activities Committee questioned Alger Hiss, a State Department officer suspected of being a Soviet spy. Nixon zeroed in on contradictions in Hiss's testimony, revealing that Hiss had lied about not knowing Whittaker Chambers, another Soviet spy. Though never convicted of being a spy, Hiss did go to prison for perjury. For decades, many Democrats asserted that Hiss was innocent and that Nixon had persecuted an innocent man. After the fall of the Soviet Union, de-classified records revealed that Alger Hiss had indeed been a Soviet spy.

    Faced with the opportunity of espionage, a Communist, though he may sometimes hesitate momentarily, will always, exactly to the degree that he is a Communist engage in espionage. The act will not appear to him in terms of betrayal at all. It will, on the contrary, appear to him to be a moral act, the more deserving the more it involves him in personal risk, committed in the name of faith (Communism) on which, he believes, hinges the hope and future of mankind, and against a system (capitalism) which he believes to be historically bankrupt. At that point, conscience to...

Beate Greithanner, a dairy farmer, is barefoot as she walks up the lush meadows of the Doblberg, a mountain in Bavaria set against a backdrop of snow-capped Alpine peaks. She stops and points to a hole in the ground. "This is where the cow was grazing," she says. "Suddenly she fell in, up...

Smaller, more nimble rivals like Riverbed Technology (RVBD) and EZchip Semiconductor (EZCH) are thriving as cloud computing fuels the need for more and faster network gear. Meanwhile the tech darling of the 1990s is beginning to resemble discounter Kmart (SHLD) in the 1980s, which lost its industry leadership to Wal-Mart (WMT) long before Sam Walton had more sales.

    And we all know that the idea that Obama was going to "transform American politics" was a myth, much like the Yeti, or its North American cousin, the Sasquatch. But Obama and the DNC's baseless attacks on alleged foreign corporate donations to conservative political campaign organizations -- as if private liberal campaign groups have not reaped in tens of millions of dollars from undisclosed corporate and other funding sources since 2006 -- is simply astounding. Let's put it this way: When the New York Times, Washington Post, and CBS News all declare the attacks to be without merit, something, somewhere,...

Franken wrote FEC Chairman Matthew Petersen to ask for a probe into whether the Chamber is indirectly using money from foreign corporations to finance its political operations, which have largely targeted Democrats, this cycle. "I am writing to ask that you investigate these claims, enforce existing laws and regulations prohibiting foreign spending in American elections, and strengthen those very last through new regulations and policy guidance," Franken wrote.

Seems the chief organized labor non-profit is the AFL-CIO's American Center for International Labor Solidarity, aka the Solidarity Center.

This was not indoctrination into communism, at least not explicitly. “No member of the Columbia faculty ever consciously guided me toward Communism,” he stated. “Columbia did not teach me Communism. It taught me despair.” That despair...

Well, actually, the nation immediately forgot the story. Still, South Dakota hasn't forgotten. It's not every day suspected spies are found traipsing through your own neighborhood. The espionage likely started after they left Aberdeen, but you still wonder if that abandoned shopping cart you saw in aisle 8 of Kessler's might have contained a coded message. The...

    Several years ago, Miss Ayn Rand wrote The Fountainhead. Despite a generally poor press, it is said to have sold some four hundred thousand copies.

It appears to be slowly climbing the best-seller lists. The news about this book seems to me to be that any ordinarily sensible head could not possibly take it seriously, and that, apparently, a good many do.

Los Angeles County coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Tuesday that 56-year-old Chambers probably died of natural causes, but additional testing will be required. Chambers was found dead Sunday at her home in the Los Angeles suburb of Canyon Country.

The following is taken from pages 536-7: "I was even less impressed by such shrieks of outraged innocence uttered by some of the Committee's witnesses, as sometimes reached my ears.

The world learned that starting in 1946 American cryptologists had cracked Soviet codes and read portions of thousands of messages Soviet intelligence operatives sent each other during World War II. Most of the cables decrypted in a program that came to be known as Venona, one of numerous codenames used to cloak its existence, were sent or received by the Soviet head of foreign intelligence....

    The National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is teaming up with local Chambers of Commerce to salute local employers who have demonstrated exceptional support for their employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve. The initiative is part of a broad outreach program to provide information and assistance to employers, local professional business organizations, local government officials and members of the Guard and Reserve, officials said. According to Bob Hollingsworth, ESGR executive director, the program marks a shift for the Defense Department agency, generally considered a resource for members of the reserve component.

    Saddam was captured this morning. No doubt there's been a sigh of relief in Washington. But most importantly, the majority of Iraqis must be feeling more safe and secure. Is it necessary to remind eveyone of why Iraqis would feel relief in light of Saddam's legacy? An estimated 300,000 dead Iraqis lay in some 260 mass graves, 40 of which have been confirmed to date. Saddam's rule meant torture chambers, dropping posion gas on civilians, starting an 8-year war with Iran which claimed a million lives, etc. Imagine if Hitler would've been running around in post-war Germany. Kind of unsettling,...

    DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- An inmate found himself before a judge sooner than he expected when he fell through the courthouse ceiling into the judge's chambers while trying to escape, police said. Ben N. Rogozensky, 31, was one of about a dozen inmates awaiting hearings Monday when he was taken to the empty jury room to speak with his attorney. The inmate asked to go into the adjacent restroom and from there climbed into the ceiling crawl space, DeKalb County sheriff's spokeswoman Mikki Jones said. State Court Judge J. Antonio DelCampo was in the courtroom when the barefoot Rogozensky fell...

    Of 'Treason' & Tailgunner Joe Posted: July 16, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 Creators Syndicate, Inc. In the 1968 campaign, when Hubert Humphrey said he would end the bombing of North Vietnam, Spiro Agnew said Hubert was "soft on communism." A media firestorm erupted over such "McCarthyism." Yet, in 1948, Harry Truman had so savaged Tom Dewey that the New York Times ran this headline: "President Likens Dewey to Hitler as Fascist Tool." Was Harry called to account? No. His "Give-'em-Hell-Harry" campaign remains a glorious episode in the archives of liberalism. Point: What the Left calls McCarthyism – smearing...

    In the months before Timothy McVeigh's execution, FBI supervisors knew the agency hadn't turned over dozens of documents to McVeigh's lawyers, yet failed to notify FBI headquarters or federal prosecutors, the Justice Department said in a highly critical report released Tuesday. The report also said agents "purposefully" refused to send information to the Oklahoma City Bombing Task Force, despite repeated requests, and even destroyed investigative files on the bombing probe. McVeigh was convicted of blowing up the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, a blast that killed 168 and injured hundreds more. He was executed...
