    Not content with a regular prosecution or a vigorous investigation, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said he hopes that Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson will receive a “vigorous prosecution” in the shooting death of Michael Brown on Aug. 9. “A vigorous prosecution must now be pursued,” Nixon said in a five minute video address posted to his website Tuesday. “The democratically elected St. Louis county prosecutor and the attorney general of the United States each have a job to do,” said Nixon, a Democrat. “Their obligation to achieve justice in the shooting death of Michael Brown must be carried out...

    Michael Brown was shot Saturday, Aug 9. The following day Missouri state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed said she would petition the DOJ for a formal investigation of the shooting.[1] Looks like she got her way. Now Nasheed has launched a petition to remove St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch from the case.[2] Who is Jamilah Nasheed?

    Famed forensic pathologist, Dr. Michael Baden: “There is a legitimate concern as to whether the shooting was an overreaction.” Anytime someone is shot six times I don’t have a problem with such an observation. However, if a 6'4”, 282 pound man – who moments earlier robbed a convenience store, strong armed the owner and assaulted Officer Darren Wilson in his own car – is charging your position despite continued warnings to stand down, in a violent neighborhood no less, you're likely to shoot repeatedly...especially if the first shots were of no deterrence. Throw in the fact preliminary reports now show...

There are young people that want justice, that know how to protest peacefully. Some are angry and out of control, others are taking advantage of it, and don't take advantage of their child. There's a difference between an activist and a thug. Don't loot in Michael's name! We are not looters; we are liberators. We are not burners; we're builders!

    Michael Brown’s Raps: Money, Sex, Drugs — And A Vulnerable Side By MATT HANSEN AND KURTIS LEE AUG. 17, 2014 In the neighborhood around the worn Canfield Green Apartments, 18-year-old Michael Brown was known as a young man with some potential. His peers around him struggled to hold jobs and had multiple run-ins with the law, but Brown had graduated from high school and was headed for community college. And he had another ambition: his music. Calling himself Big’Mike, he was a prolific amateur rapper, recording solo and duet tracks and posting them online. He even included a phone number...

    AUGUST 15, 2014 Who Lost the Cities? There is more wrong with Ferguson than the Brown case. By Kevin D. Williamson The Reverend Jesse Jackson is, to the surprise of all thinking people, right about something: “A spark has exploded,” he said, referring to the protests and violence in Ferguson, Mo. “When you look at what sparked riots in the Sixties, it has always been some combination of poverty, which was the fuel, and then some oppressive police tactic. It was the same in Newark, in Chicago, in Detroit, in Los Angeles. It’s symptomatic of a national crisis of urban...

    August 16, 2014 College Board Erases the Founding Fathers. By Patrick Jakeway The classic novel Brave New World describes a future in which people have lost all of their liberty and in which they have become drugged robots obedient to a central authority. It also details how this control was first established. First, the rulers had to erase all history and all the people’s memory of a time before their bondage. Today, the history of George Washington's leadership has been erased in the new Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History test/curriculum, taking effect in the fall of 2014. The College Board,...

    Five days after a police officer fired multiple rounds at and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, we now know that the officer’s name is Darren Wilson. Thanks to Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, we also know that officers believe Brown had just strong-armed a convenience store clerk for a $48.99 box of Swisher Sweets cigars. Jackson provided the incident report from that robbery to reporters in Missouri this morning. He took no questions, suggesting reporters take some time to “digest it.” (snip) Why did it take five days for them to release this information, none of which has...

    American Thinker ^ | May 3, 2012 | Scott Swett
    "Trayvon," of course, is Trayvon Martin, the black 17-year-old who was killed two months ago in Florida. "Zimmerman" is George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot him. Referring to Martin by his first name and Zimmerman by his last is just one small tactic in the national media campaign to make Martin's death an enduring symbol of white racism. The Trayvon campaign is accurately described as "disinformation" because deception is a fundamental part of its planning, strategy, and implementation. Leftist disinformation campaigns are common but not widely understood. This article is intended to make them easier to recognize, and...

Rather immediately though, I got stopped by a bunch of German highway police officers. "Most welcome to Germany, but take it easy", I got told (off). I soon forgot all about these words. 10 minutes later I nearly caused an accident because I failed to understand there was a que developing just one kilometer ahead of me. However, several...

    07.06.14 Why the White House Ignored All Those Warnings About ISIS Team Obama was told, over and over, that the Iraqi army couldn’t stop a terror group that was ready to pounce. But Washington was a prisoner to its paradox of an Iraq policy. On November 1, 2013, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki visited the White House, and made a rather stunning request. Maliki, who celebrated when the last U.S. troops left his country in 2011, asked Obama to quietly send the military back into Iraq and help his beleagured Air Force develop targets for air strikes; that’s how serious...

It’s a sad reality that Clinton, despite her great success, must address the issues of sexism and physical appearance in every interview – imagine if a male politician was quoted encouraging men to throw down their grooming kits and just ‘go for it’, it’s laughable, right? But until women are judge only on their achievements and conduct, until the media’s obsession with women's physical appearance wanes, it’s...

Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded warmly to Obama’s gestures by warmly cheating on our arms treaties, warmly supporting our enemies in Syria, warmly annexing Crimea, and warmly abetting the destruction of a Malaysian airliner...

That afternoon the initial vote was 116-35. The final House vote of 119-33 came on Tuesday, July 29. It was not entirely on party lines; ten Democrats voted “no” and six Republicans voted “yes” including some surprises (e.g., Rep. Jay Barrows, Rep Lenny Mirra). There was one minor amendment, sponsored by Democrats, introduced and passed in the House. The Senate quickly concurred, negating the need for a conference committee. All...

    July 31, 2014 If Obama Tries to Grant Legal Status to Illegal Immigrants, the States Should Say 'I'll See You In Court' By Allan J. Favish It has been reported that President Barack Obama is planning to unilaterally attempt to grant legal status to illegal immigrants. There is no legal authority for him to do so. It has been reported that it may not be possible to stop Obama’s action with a lawsuit because nobody would have standing to bring the lawsuit. Legal experts see any challenge to the expected immigration policy changes headed for the same key roadblock facing...

    A sweet, smiling, soft-voiced young Palestinian woman, whose child was the beneficiary of a life-saving procedure in an Israeli hospital, explains that there is no compromise. Palestinians must have Jerusalem, and whether children and others die in the process is irrelevant, because her culture is fine with death. Now that the Jews have saved her son hopefully he will be able to grow up and kill them.

    Just turned on C-span to see what's happening in the debate on the Republican border crisis bill.

And I'm jumping out of my chair, yelling..OH..JUST LIKE YOU DID WITH THE OBAMACARE BILL....

    After nearly fours years of caving-in and then approving payment for everything that Obama has wanted, Speaker "Blank Check" Boehner has proven himself to be Obama's primary enabler for Obama's DEMOCRAT BROTHERHOOD GOVERNMENT. The US House “Sue Obama” Bill defines Speaker Boehner’s political philosophy: TALK BIG, and DO NOTHING. This “Sue Obama” House Bill will be quickly rejected by the Courts because Judges appointed by politicians in the Democrat Brotherhood Government, (DBG), have promised to not interfere with the goals of the DBG. Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner is always willing to defer to the opinion of Judges appointed by Democrat...

    Kristina Karjalainen was actually born in Finland, but later moved to Tallinn, Estonia with her parents when she was three. The green-eyed blonde competed-in and won the Miss Estonia (Universe) pageant last fall. But the Finns and Estonians are closely related racially, culturally, historically, and linguistically... so I doubt anyone was too offended, except runners-up maybe. She's now a college student studying the Hungarian language (also related to Finnish and Estonian) while doing some modeling, lovely girl with some class from the looks of things: More at Reaganite Republican...
